"  What Mr. John Sanderson, who  has Spent   44   Years  in the  Mountains df B. C, Thinks of  Deutschman Caves.  On Monday evening Mr. John ���������Sanderson, Mis. Lund and Mrs. Hedstiom  returned  ftoin   a three days'visit to  the   famous  Deutschman  Caves near  Boss Peak.     In conveisation.with a  Hebaxd reporter Mr. Sanderson stated thab his..visit to the caves was a  one of the most pleasant of his life.  "I have been in the mountains of  British-Columbia for nearly _4 years  now," said Mr. Sanderson," "and I  have seen some beautiful valleys and  magnificent scenery, but I have never  seen anything that will begin to compare with the beauties of Cougar Valley in which the Deutschman Caves  are situated. There you have grand  rugged mountain scenery, flower beds  extending the whole length of the  valley coveted with flowers, that can  only be seen at the elevation at which  the caves are situated. Then the canyons and natural bridges on the surface are alone well worth a^visit to  see.     '-' _  ' "The two lake's at the end of the  valley and just in the shadow of Grizzly Glacier are beautiful sheets ��������� of  water," and some, day in the near  future you will see pleasure boats  skimming f its surface in all directions,  and," too, you may, have "boat -races  there which-will1 attract"1 as much  attention *as_,that sport now does for  instance on" Toronto!Bay. ^The water  in the lakes is as' clear as crystal, and  you .will, have .."difficulty in locating  two" other, just as beautiful sheets of  *.   - i    **     -     -  i *  glacier, water in this country.   ~ K' .  -  -"The -two ladies and  myself, 'with  Mr. Deutschman*. as" guide,'made the  M. -,       -���������   r    - *    * I      f������    - -      -J    ,,    ��������� ...  trip to _ the ^caves from1 the railway in  less' than���������*7tbilee-*'hours'' witboutiariy  serious di__cUlties,''and"~yuu may state  for me that there are no*real physical  difficulties' 'for ladies making the trip  now.

The side of the mountain on the  opposite side of the liver fiom Sp������nces  Bridge, slipped into the liver. It came  down with a roar that could be heaid  a mile away. A tidal wave of immense proportions wus the result.  This foam-crested wave, which  swept- up the river more thiut two  miles, overwhelmed. the little "ndian  village. Not a house remains to-day.  Even the ferry, which the Indians  used to cross the 1 iver," was carried  upstream by the flood.  The water rose between seventy and  eighty feet. It came up almost a foot  a minute after the flist wave. At one  time it was five feet over the railway  tracks at tbe opposite side of the river  from the point where slide occurred.  One hundred Indians had just  quitted their church'^ building yester-  day,aftei noon when the flood came.  If it had occurred ten minutes earlier,  all v would undoubtedly have been  killed or^ drowned. "   ���������,  Of the'fifteen   who   are  dead,-six  bodies bave been recovered, 'and five  others are likely_to-be pulled out of  the  wreckage   this afternoon. " The  bodies.of four will probably,nevetf be  recovered, for they are of thiee men  and a'woman who were out fishing in  a boat, and'wh'o were caught with'the  first crash of the flood.^,   'Jl' '.

McMahon's  blacksmith shop and cariiage works,  First street,   on   Monday  afternoon.  The   fire   was  flrst   discovered    jut������t  underneath the  floor  of  the  becotid  storey and must   have   been   burning  inside the wall for some   timo   befoie  breaking out.    It is supposed to have  oiigiuated from   sparks   igniting   the  paper between   the   outer  and  inner  walls on the west side of the building.  An alarm was speedily turned in,  but  eveiything was so diy and inflammable  that by the time No. 2 brigade reached  the scene, the whole upper storey was  on fire.   Notwithstanding  this  however, the brigade did excellent woik  in suppressing the H.uiips.   The upper  storey was practically all buined and  considerable stock whkli was on hand  also'destroyed.     The   total  loss   will  amount to about $2300. There is $2000  insurance  on   the building and $2000  on the stock,  distributed   as   follows:  $1000 each in the Manitoba,  Queen's,  Royal and   New  York   Underwriters  insurance companies, represented locally    by    the    Revelstoke    Insurance  AgPncy.

Mr.  Nelson estimates that fully 150 square_  miles of 'timber lands will be located  on or before the end of this month.  The' raid was started with the early  spring, and a large proportion of the  best timber has already been located,  but new cruiseis are continually  appearing in the district and by fall it  is expected that., nearly all of the  timber will hav;e- been filed on by  ti mber speculators." ^  In this section lies~bne bf the largest  bodies of timber in tbe v, est^. Owing  to its location the timber is practically  valueless at .this time, and* the face  that'  clo:  locations,1 is taken by them'"as an  indication "that actual"'c6ns*truction  work on' the rditd is to be "commenced  this year.

The mrji working away for  dear lifo in tlm fading twilight that  Juno evening wrote the magic word,  laid down his pen, arid looked about  him for thc first time in two solid  hours. At last his wonderful symphony was written. Yes; not another  note would lie add, not a single bar  revise; it should go before the judges  in that big contest lie was striving  might, and main to win just os it  toil, the best that .was in him, the  fair flower of his achievement that  was surely destined to bring fame  and fortune, maybe something still  more precious, in its train.  His chance; the golden opportunity f  of a lifetime; "Two hundred guineas  and a gold medal for the best symphony by a llritish composer." All  unexpectedly it had fallen out, bringing with it a golden vista to hi.s  glowing thoughts. Once let him win  that, and everything was simplified.  There was no pinnacle of fame, no  point of soaring ambition so high  that to it he might not aspire. Old  Farley Ainswoi������h, most generous of  benefactors, woulcl laugh now at the  bare idea of calling him son-in-law;  such a possibility as thc lad hc had  befriended daring to fall in love  with hi.s own daughter .had never entered tho head of the proud, music-  loving old squire, or he would have  taken speedy means to nip the romance in the bud.   Hut afterwards���������  It seemed to Stephen Otwny that  all tho face of Nature would bo  changed at that one stroke. Rising  from the table at which he had been  working, he went to the piano and  began to play. A Chopin nocturne,  dreamy and elusive, first; then the  joyous rondo of the Waldstein sonata, filling thc little room with the  music of a hundred rippling, sun-  kissed brooks; and from that ho  drifted softly, all unconscious, into  the other���������his own. His fingers  scarcely seemed to touch the ivory  keys, brushed them with the airy  lightness of a butterfly; yet tho man  who had softly opened the door and  stepped inside halted involuntarily  at sound of that strange, sweet  melody.  "Steve, you miraclo, what's that?"  the tense, hushed whisper thrilled  across. "Not���������not tho symphony?  You don't mean it! Why, man, it's  wonderful; no one else can over hope  to  win!"  "You think so?" Hc had broken  off abruptly; swung round with lips  just- parted, and thc blue-grey eyes  staring past in that seeming effort  to focus some dim, nebulous object-  in the darkness of the passage. "1  do not know what te think. Sometimes I am  full     of    confidence;     at  others    Anyhow,   it's   finished;     1  am grateful for that alone.

Stephen Otway lookod  across inquiringly; the change of tpnc  was not to bc mistaken.  "I���������I���������oh, look here,"how am I lo  say it? Tho fact is, I've bcon a fool  nnd got into a mess again. Will  y-ou lend mo some money till my  next cheque comes? I must have fifty  pounds by to-morrow or elsc it's  ruin, and I daren't go to thc dear  old governor again. It would break  his heart."  "Fifty pounds?"  "Yc-es. 1 know I've hnd a run of  bad luck lately, but I'd no idea it  was   so   much   until   to-day. I've  scraped up seven from somewhere.  Steve, you're my only hope. See me  through this onco, and I promise  never to touch a card again as long  as I live���������yes, honor bright.  Fifty    pounds!      Stephen   Otway's  thought you really meant them I,  too, should be angry. Come and see  me again to-morrow; we will talk it  over when you are more composed."  '-'No!" He' had drawn himself  apart; stood there, handsome -. and  defiant, with a hectic little spot on  cither cheek. "No, we will not! It's  now or never, Otway���������I mean it!  Chooso quickly���������yes or no!"- The  other's half-impatient shrug incensed  him beyond measure; he waited for  no more. "Very well! That ends  it; remember, it's your own doing.  Good-night���������and good-bye!'���������'-  Yes; that was it. "Good-night���������  and good-bye!" Full five minutes after ho had dung out of thc room the  older man stood thero in tho gathering darkness trying to realize, to  mako himself believe that ho- had  really gono. Clivc could surely never  mean it���������never! He would be back  in tho morning, nay, to-night, with  that winning smile on his face, pouring out apologies for thoso hasty  words. Not possiblo for a moment  that ho really meant them!  Laughing awkwardly he turned  away to light the gas and draw  down tho blind, and then wont back  to those carefully-written sheets of  manuscript. Just one more look to  make sure that ho had copied -them  correctly; then ho would wrap them  up and put them away 6afely till  morning, till he could carry them  with his own hands to the big col-  logo where their fate was to be decided. Too precious to be trusted  to tho post!  In tho morning he would not own  to feeling, disappointed that there  was no letter; Clive was comin  round shortly, that wa.s all. But the  hours passed, with no Clivr, no communication of any kind, and ho grew  fidgety; told himsolf that he had been  harsh and ungenerous. In the afternoon, anxious to purchase reconciliation at nny price, he went to tho  bank, withdrew his little stock of  money���������earned by playing solos at  occasional concerts or City dinners���������  and sent live iifi notes, with a few  hastily scribbled words, to Olive's  address. lly night they wore back at  his own, with no word at all; and  for just tho moment he was staring  at them with eyes that seemed transfixed, his lips quivering like a woman's. Only the moment; then hc  had snatched up hnt and gloves, and  was rushing round to Olive's lodging  at top speed. The grim misunderstanding must bo ended once for all.  "Mr. Ainsworth?" ho panted, ns  thc  door .opened  to  hi.s  knock.   "Is  ho nt " No  morc; thero was    not  time. "Cone out!" tho vinegary woman of the house.had snapped, the  sweeping sounds of the violin that  came from the room above giving hcr  words the lie even as sho spoke; and  it was straightway closed in his face.  Cruel���������yes! Trudging back home in  that queer ngony of anger and despair, it seemed to him that never  again could thc old close intimacy  revive; that one i-ebulT had severed  it for aye. Small wonder that afterwards thero was only silence, and a  broach that .widened with thc days.  A* time of strenuous work and  harder waiting. None but thc man  himself could ovor know the bitterness of those dragging weeks, the  hopes of one day that wero fears tho  next, the ceaseless, well-nigh automatic swing of the pendulum 'twixt  happy confidence and black despair.  "I'll win! I must win!" he said,  hoarsely, to himself at times; and  next moment would bc tortured with  thc thought that tens of others must  be saying just tho samo.  When the fateful day had dawned  at last his restlessness knew no restraint. Tlie hours literally crawled  towards night.  A quarter to <cight! Heedless of  thc steady drip-drip of the rain, he  had hurried through the glistening  streets, paid his shilling, and was  mingling, an unknown unit, with tho  crowd that thronged the big concert-  hall. To-night would cither make ori  mar hiin, which a few more minutes  would  decide.  At eight o'clock a" rolling thunder  of applause. Tho bushy-haired conductor had mounted to his desk; a  sharp rat-tat, his stick poised for an  instant in tho air, and the concert  had begun.  it all out���������that bitter, blinding sense  of treachery dimming all else in his  brain. What did it mean���������what  could it mean���������save one thing?  Stolen! .  Threo solid hours he tramped the  streets, beating out that grim tragedy of a lifetime. Incredible, unthinkable, that the man who had  been his friend could have carried  paltry rage so far!  And then  Ho had reached     his  lodgings, gono up tho creaky stairs  with tho heavy, shuffling tread of one  foot-weary and  despondent,     thrown  opon tho door of his room, and   "Clive!"  Tliat moment would surely livo for  over in his memory. There they  stood a full minute, facing one another,  neither seeking  to  break    tho  straining  silenco.   Then   "Stephen,   you     wero there!      You  heard "  "Yes; I heard!" A world of bitter  accusation in thc tone. His lips had  framed invective hot and angry; but  ho beat the impulse back and waited  to hear moso.  "I was mad���������out of my senses! It  was that night you refused to lend  me tho money. You had showed me  the sheets and told mo they wero finished, and I saw tho chance to���������to  be revenged. I came back here aftor  you had gono out. , They wore in  that drawer, made up into a parcel  and addressed; and I took them out,  put blank ones in their places "���������  "You stole thom?"  "Yes. I can never ask you to forgive mo, never forgive myself. Ever  since then I have lived in torture,  hoping night and day that somo  other might be successful; but you  see! Now my cup of bitterness is  full;    I     am      punished  tenfold.   My  father  Here,  look!    I���������I can't say  it!"  A  telegram had  fluttered from his  hnnd.   Otway picked  it up  mechani-  coUy, lit the gas, and read:  "leather  dangerously     ill;   como     at  once.���������Sybil."  Next   moment    he had  faced  back  sharply.  "Well?"  "I can't go, Stephen! I���������T daren't  now!" It was almost a scream.  "The dear old governor had set his  heart on my winning this thing; and  I couldn't���������couldn't tell ltim���������" Tho  voice broke o(T into a convulsive sob;  the man was shaking-'like an aspen.  Otway lookod at him pityingly; then  crossed the room and began to finger  a railway timc-tablo.  "Twelve-fifteen from Fusion!" Ho  pulled oul his watch; stood in  thought a moment. "I'll go!" ho  Raid, curtly. '.'You can stay hero if  you like!"  "You will? Heaven bless you for  that Stephen!" said the other, fervently. "You're a good fellow; it's  ton times more thnn I deserve. Send  mo word how���������how things.nro going,  won't  you?"  Five minutes later, as Stephen Otwny hailed a hansom and told tho  man to drive full speed to Eiistnn,  he caught himself wondering for the  second time that night if thc wholo  of it wn.s not a .dream���������some subtle,  slinging spell that all at once would  break and leave him staring stupidly  at the vivid sense of actuality.  No dream, however, that midnight  journey into Warwickshire; no dream  the white-faced girl who crept softly  -down the stairs in that early dawn  to greet him. the starled question  staring from her eyes before ever  she spoke  a word.  "Stephen! But where is Clivc? Hc  will be too late!" His mumbled  falsehood, nnd then: "Yes; very ill  indeed! 'A sudden heart attack; the  doctor has been with him half tho  night. You will not mind if I go  back?"  Later she came to him again.

Whon washing articles, thc flannels first, the calico and muslin garments next, lastly towels, dusters  and rougher articles.  A cloth wrung out of boiling water  and placed round a mould containing  jelly will do much to bring it; out  whole and  without slicking.  Those who tako cold easily after  washing their head should rub a littlo oau do cologne or othcr spirit  into the scalp after the hair is dried.  To keop a fruit or seod cake moist,  place it in an air-tight tin with a  good sound apple, renewing tho apple  if it becomes in the least decayed.  Those whoso skin is inclined to bo  yellow should never apply to it any  lotion that contains glycerine. Elder-  flower water, instead, will best suit  such complexions.  Hair brushes in daily use should bo  washed at least once a month. Put  a littlo ammonia into tho water, and  dip the brush���������bristles only���������into  this. Dry the brush in tho open air.  Cover grease spots on wood or  stono with flour, starch or powdered  chalk, which will absorb the grease  Cold water thrown on grease as soon  as it is spilled will harden it; thc  greater part may then bc scraped off.  Don't givo children medicine that  has boon ordered for a grown-up  person. This is always dangerous,  as what has only a very-mild effect  upon the system of an adult is sufficient to upset a child for weeks afterwards.  If a can is allowed to stand with  sour, milk or whey it becomes so infected that the usual washing has  but little effect, owing to tho thin  film of casein that-fornis on thctin  and affords a constant daily supply  of bacteria. - ���������  See that the. sides or wall of your  meat safes' arc. occasionally -scoured  with soap, or soap and slaked lime.

If you have a covered pan in which  to roast meat, never open it to  baste tho meat. Keep covered from  first to last. Tho idea is that the  pan is full of steam, which penetrates the fibre of the meat. If desired to brown tho outside, leave  the cover off a short time in a quick  oven.

The inmates of charitablo institutions all ovor Europe, and especially  in Switzerland, have for a long  timo been engaged in making  fancy things from stamps. An orphan asylum at Lo Loclo, Switzerland, for example, is partly maintained: by  old postage stamps.  This has resulted in tho impression  on tho part of many tourists that  1,000,000 stamps would entitle an  orphan to admission into tho asylum  but such is not tho caso. The asylum yearly receives thousands and  thousands of old stamps from persons all ovcr Switzerland who aro  interested in tho charity. The one  hundred or morc girls in tho institution arrange tho stamps in little  packets and soil them to collectors.  The income derived from this  sourco alone in several thousand dollars each year. To this sum is added  that from thc sale of thc articles of  fancy design which aro also turnod  out.  It is said that in many of the monasteries scattered all over Europe  the monks occupy a great deal of  their spare time in decorating" the  walls with scones entirely composed  of postage stamps. ^  The Chinese, as a matter of fact,  havo gone in for stamp decoration  moro than any other nation.in tho  world. They wero early attracted to  tho artistic possibilities of old  stamps. It is said that at first thoy  asked missionaries for old stamps,  and tho missionaries resolved to turn  this demand to account. They evolved a schema by which they could exchange  OLl^'STAMPS' FOR FOOD  to  bo supplied    to  various     Chineso  charitablo  institutions    which     they  maintained.  As the missionaries .were well aware  of tho enormous quantities ,,of canceled stamps which are yearly thrown  away here, they wrote homo telling  of thoir scheme, and the pastors hero  became interested in tho movement.  They set about tho task of collecting  old stamps from their parishioners  with such energy that immense quantities wore soon sont,to  China.  This movement has become 'so general that the peoplo in many parishes now collect and save all the old  stamps that pass through - their  hands, and when a sufficient quantity has boon accumulated thoy are at  once forwarded to China. Last year  it is-said- that moro than enough  stamps to fill a freight ,'car were collected and sent. But .oven this tremendous number did not'seem in any  way to glut tho stamp market, for  tho Chinamen took all. that .were offered for sale and asked for more.  Tho Chinamen use the stamps as a  substitute for wall paper, and it is  not unusual to sco tho inside of a,.  Chinaman's abodo covered with  stamps. In Canton a wealthy mandarin has threo rooms of his residence completely papered with different varieties from all over" the world  artistically arranged.  For tho borders thero wero accurate representations of dragons composed of tho French black ten cent  stamps. Thon crosses, squares and  triangles, made up of different color  cd varieties, supplied tho place of  the usual wall paper pattern. Somo  of theso designs indicated the expenditure of much patient effort and  skill.  It was indeed owing to this  torn of covering, walls with  stamps  that somo  of  THE RAREST ISSUES  in the world have boon preserved. In  one caso a missionary to Hawaii  had one of- tho rooms of his house  papered with tho issues of different  countries. A friend who was visiting  him discovered' , a number of  Hawaiian stamps. -of a certain variety which had' not previously bce"n  known to collectors, among thcm th'e  two cont stamp " of " 1851. Six of  theo stamps wore removed from the  _walls,_*aiid__they__nro^'snid^to_be_the  only specimens-,of .this . = particular  variety now extant.  Perhaps tho best' thing of this kind  that has been soon in Now York is a  largo reproduction of the llritish  coat of arms. This also has boen  made of stamps of all denominations  and countries. Whilo npthtng but  stamps has been used, yet thc reproduction is accurate in thu smallest'  detail, even tho lettering of tho  legend "Honi soit qui mal y ponso"  being porfect. Especial caro has boon  taken to. arrange 'the stamps in  colors that blend, and the effect when  ono "stands some distance" away' is  such ,that it is hard to bcliovo that  nothing but common postage stamps  hns  beon  used.  Every detail has beon carefully  worked out, and each will withstand  the closest scrutiny. Tho crown surmounting tho shield is especially well  reproduced. The jewels nro each cut  from a stamp of the proper color,  and thc whole effect is most brilliant.  cus-  old  percd With Mysterious'  Reverence.  It Is now moro than twenity-th'r**  hundred years since Herodotus expounded to the assembled Greeks hia  celebrated theory that the cardinal  fact in his*tory was tho interaction of  Asia and Europe, the pendulum ot  of ascendency swinging mow to th������  East und now to the West. From  tho fall of Troy to tho memorable  land and sea fight at Myka^o ho depicted unany a vicissitude, but of  course lie could not foresee that tho-  grandsons of tho men wA'o heard him  would witness th'e destruction" of tho-  Persinn Empire hy Alexander and  the penetration of India by the Macedonian phalanx. As little coultl the-  Western peoples, which in the nineteenth century dcspoilod and insulted  China nnd wrenched open tho gates-  of Japan, have expected that in  1 ho ��������� courso of a few decades a Far  Eastern nation would exhibit a degree of military and naval efficiency  unsurpassed," if equaled, in tho annals  of nianMnd.  Had our memories been moro tenacious, lions ,of us .would Jtave. taken -  for-granted, as most of us have,* that  Asia was beyond tho hope 'of resurrection, doomed to permatlent prostration under the European heel.  Such', undoubtedly, was th"o delusion.'  in which tho Eastern subjects of th'o  Roman Empire ' long abided, although such defeats as those of "  Crassus and Valerian ought to h'avo  excited deep jnisg-ivinus. Everybody  imagined that the Oriental wave had  spent itself when Hannibal was routed at Zama, and nobody could have-  anticipated that, from the second  half of lho seventh to near tho close  of the'" seventeenth- century, Europe  would bo haunted with th'o dread of  Asiatic  INVASION AND CONQUEST.  Yet more th'on a thousand years wero  to elapse from tho seizure of Roman  Syria  by  a  successor  of Mohamimcfl  to  Sobicski's  repulse  of  the     Turks  from beforo thc walls of Vienna.    Of  all Aryan countries Russia had least  reason to  arrogate an  innate superiority over tlio Turanian stock. Tho  Crand Dukes  of    Muscovy had  been  paying tribute for two centuries   to   q  the    Mongol    rulers    of  the  Golden.  Hordo    when    tho    Turks took Constantinople,   and  some  three and     a.  half centuries moro wero to "elapse before tho Russians regained control or  the -Crimea.    Even China in the seventeenth'century," when  the   Manchu  dynasty .was'young,  drove Muscovite-   -  pioneers and merchants out of^ Manchuria and forced them by treaty- to ���������  retire  behind' tho Amur-River.    Hi's,  tory,  therefore,  will but' repeat ; it-'  self when Russia' submits to similar  boundaries at tho-coinmand  of ..the   -  Japanese.  It is' incontestable,    if we consider-  the size and equipment of. tho armies-  despatched by Russia to the scene of  war in the*Far-East, that we   have-  witnessod the. most* stupendous elTort  ever yet made by Europe.in ite agelong     struggle  for   thc  mastery * of  Asia.

Harvey    Blackman   stood    looking  down an tho Earl of Whittlesca with  folded arms and a thoughtful frown.  '���������The doctor knew tho autocratic temper of his distinguished    patient. To  oppose his    will   might possibly    do  Nmore harm than to let the imperious  old nobleman have his way.   Y'et tho  doctor/c'ould not disguise from   himself  the   fact  that   the  carl's   condition wns grave���������ospccinlly in viow of  his great ago.   Twice or thrice in the  '^preceding    month    had he had cataleptic seizures, lying as ono dond for  'a period.    Brief as these crises were,  ,they were not a little alarming, and  Dlackman  had     refrained  from mentioning them   to    tho    family.       By  ysomo chance they had occurred   when  tho  earl was alone wilh his medical  attendant.  Soon a rosy nurse,  in crisp,    bluo  ,gown  and  dazzling  cap  and streamers,  appeared with a tray, and sim-  jUltnneously  a  gong  boomed through  the house.  -i "You'll stay to lunch, of course,  Blackmail," snid the earl feebly. "I  wish I could join you."  [ ^He shrugged his ancient shoulders,  and enct a.misliking eye at thc bowl  pf steaming beef-tea.  - "Remember," he called after thc  doctiiS "I'm going, to tho Derby,, in  spito of tho-lot of you!"  This defiance,seemed lo restore his  hood-humor, for he chuckled feebly  aw.hc plunged his spoon into tho  Jtowl, and, catching the nurse's eyo,  executed an elaborate wink.     *  Thero was "only one other person  ht lunch besides the doctor���������the Hon.  |i\rthur Hertsea, the earl's ' second  son. _ He was a heavy, low-browed  person, with a florid, mottled faco,  and. a sullen expression. Ho nodded  ���������Sulkily as the doctor took his seat  at the tabic.  'Guv'nor still want to travel down  to F.psom?"-ho asked, cocking -_a  'bloodshot eye in tho doctor's direction, nis big hands trembled slight-  ���������;y, and ho .merely played with the  food on his plate.

This was  tho position of affairs at tho approach of Derby Day, 19���������.  II.  In spite of Dr. Blackmail's words  to tho Hon. Arthur Hertsea, his patient did go to tho Derby, and did  not dio on the road. Like a waxoa  figuro tho old man sat in his carriage, swathed in rugs, his scanty,  white hair straggling from under tho  brim of an old-stylo tall hat, tho  only living thing about him being  his deep-set, twinkling eyes... His second son hovered about him, gnawing  tho ends of his moustache with  dreadful anxiety, and trembling every  timo the eurl drooped his eyelids.  "This is getting on my nerves," ho  confided to his friend Gaplain Brooking. "I daren't even go away to got  a drink."  Tho captain, a tall man, 'with  aquiline features, and a projecting  chin, his frock-coat gay with a. but-'  tonholo of geraniums and" maidenhair, shook his hoad sympathetically.  "I breathe easier for one when tho  'All right!' is callod out," he admitted. For both theso ghouls a  largo sum of money depended on tho  earl being so obliging ns not to "die  till after the race. Lord Portsdown  and his wifo had passed tho carriage  on tho top of a friend's drag, and  and bowed to the occupants, who cut  them point-blank.  Erebus was a hot favorite, and,  bar accidents, scented a certainty for  the Blue Ribbon that year. His  most dreaded opponent, a French  horso named Lo Chouan, was reported not to have stood the voyago  across tho Channel very well, nnd  tho chances of Lord Whittlesca's colt  wero proportionately rosier.  "Bar accidents!" muttered tho  Hon. Arthur, between his teeth, as  he bent over the motionless figuro in  the carriage. "All gay, dad?" ho  nsked, in a voice that was meant to  be  cheery.  "Very fit, thanks, Arthur, my  boy," said tho earl feebly. And his  dutiful son foil back Jrom tho vehicle's sido with a deep sigh of relief.  But even as the old man spoko his  head dropped on his breast. Around  him the vust Epsom crowd roared  and jostled. Tho numbers wero going up for the big race; ,in a few  minutes the Derby would be lost nnd  won.  "Brooking, como here���������quick! I  don't liko tho look at all!" cried tho  Lion. Arthur, his voice rattling in  his throat  Tho captain bent over the still  figure in the carriage, listened at tho  heart,  looked into tho staring eyes.  He lifted to his friend a face as  colorless  as  that of  the earl.  "It's all ovor," hc snid simply;  "we're beat."-  Across the motionless figure tho  two stared lividly at each pother.  "They're off!" came a hoarse roar  from tho" crowd. And as tho'.-long  line of glittering silk jackqts swept  forward amid a thunder of hoofs,  the race for the Derby began.  "We're not bent yet!"'hissed Hertsea savagely, the sweat shining on  his forehead.    "Help mc���������quick!"  They hoisted up the earl's body into as natural a posture as possible,  propped with rugs and cushions from  behind. Clambering into tho - carriage, .Hertsea stood up, with his  glasses at his eyes, one hand upon  his" father's'shoulder. Ho thus helped  to support the body in the desired  position. Brooking stood on . tho  step in an easy attitude.  "Erebus! Erebus! The favorite  wins!" yelled thc crowd. Tho judge's  verdict coincided with the popular  one, and, with a mighty cheer, thousands of hats flew sky-high. In view  of his great age and infirmities, it  was not expected that tho owner of  Erebus should load the, winner in, so  the crowd'cheered hiin from a distance.   -  .As for tho two scoundrels in tho  carriage, their one idea was to got  back to town with their inanimate  charge.

Close Resemblances Lead to  Complications That Are Funny  and Serious.  .  It is an uncanny thing to have a  "double," to know that thero is  somo ono in tho world who is your  "other self," . The experience is still  moro weird when* that "double" is a  raving lunatic, and he escapes from  confinement. ��������� ������  One caso with a serious trend is  that of an eastern college professor,  who had, unknown to himself, a  "double" who was avtliingerous madman. It happened that tho professor  wont to spend his holidays in tho  county that contained tho asylum  whero the other was; and whilo ho  was there tho lunatic broke looso.  Ono day, whilo out collecting gaolo-  gical specimens, tho unfortunate educator was seized by warders who  had been scouring tho country and  hauled off lo tho madhouse. Thoro  though tho doctor expressed somo  doubts as to tho captive's identity,  he was detained until, happily, tho  real lunatic was brought in. At  onco released, the sane man, upset by  tho incident, was for a time quito  ill.  Recovering, hc paid tho warders  who guarded tho lunatic a weekly  sum to tako special care of thoir  charge. "But should ho again oludo  you, inform mo at once, and I will  remain shut up nt homo." When the  lunatic in timo died his rational, living "reflection" sent a handsome sum  to tho warders and to the asylum in  gratitude for  TIIE  RELIEF  HE  THEN  FELT.  Thero is a woman, now living  abroad, who left hor native country  for a peculiar reason. In a largo  store she was onco accused of being  a shoplifter. Able to prove hcr innocence, sho was informed of the disturbing fact evidently she had a  "double" who was a criminal, "take  caro that sho does not como to  learn of your existence," advised tho  police.  Tho woman wont to live in tho  country, but when tho shoplifter,  fleeing from tho largo cities, continued operations in the smaller' towns  the woman from a portrait was  again mistaken *for her and had to  appear as a witness. Then what thc  polico hah foreseen actually happened. Tho shoplifter, ' aware of tho  fact that sho exactly resembled tho  other, started a fresh career of crime  passing.herself off as the latter. And  in the course of time-so much annoyance to the respectable double thus  resulted that sho disappeared - from  her native land forevcr.-  A young boy, sent homo from Europe alone, * was looked after on tho  long voyage by^a fellowTpasscnger, a  stranger,''who in a harbor where tho  lad fell overboard also saved . his  life. ,On landing the* rescuer* slipped  away before tho boy's relations could  thank him.

Somo j-oars'ago a certain English  royal personage -had a "doublo,"  who was an oyster opener in a restaurant. For the fun of the thing  tho member of royalty donned tho  man's linon sleeves and apron and  the I-waited 011 tlio guests. One customer,  detecting somo difference in tho attendant's manner, asked why ho had  become so dignified. Tho joking reply wa.s: "Been presented at court."  Whereupon tho customer, of courso,  in ignorance, actually said to royalty: "Would not 'been up in court'  bo morc likely?".  Believing in the "unlucky to meet  your 'double' " theory above mentioned, a millionaire, who ��������� lenrnod  thnt a certain individual exactly resembled him, gave that "shadow" a  substantial sum to leave the couniry.

Campbell, an assistant  superintendent of schools in Brooklyn. N. Y., has engaged counsel to  push her case in the Dominion nnd  Britislt courts, says tho Now York  Herald.  Recently she received, from Lord  Lyttelton, Colonial' Secretary, a reply.to a letter sho addressed to King  Edward, which states that Lord  Knollys, the King's privato secretary, is able lo advise his Majesty  to take no other action th'an, to suggest that Mrs. Campbell take her  claim to  the courts.  REFUSED THEIR REQUEST.  In 1S87 tho Privy Council refused  a -joint application from- representatives -of -tho Catholic church, tho  Church of England and tho'citi/.ens  of Quebec, asking thaU ������30,000,  held by tho British' Governroe'nt and  collected as rentals upon" this pro-  pertyv-should bo equally divided be-'  twoen the two churches in ^Quebec.  Tho Privy Council, -with, tho-asscnt-  of Queen Victoria," decided that'the'  heir would in time' appear^- and ��������� tliat  tho property, and its usufruct from  the timo the decree to escheat terminated in 1865, belonged" to tho  heirs of Louis Joseph Lambert, who  gave largely of his vast fortune" to  the French" in the French and Indian  war. When tho English conquered  hc was deprived of his estates and  those of his wife, the 'Demoiselle Ge-  noviovo De Villoray, who inherited  103 acres in Quebec 'city* from' her  father.  ".Where havo you beon for forty  years, Mrs. .Campbell?'" said Sir Wilfrid Laurier, when Mrs. Campbell  visited him two years ago. "I know  every member of your family and  their history, and you are the . only  missing member." Sir Wilfrid,  through- his wife,"was a collateral  claimant to lho Lambert estate.

Experiments  with heavy vehicles indicate that  wheels should be mndo both higher  and broader. Tn England it has boon  recommended that with a maximum  nxlo-load of eight tons tho width of  tiro should be about 104 inches. In-  crca.se of the diameter of tho wheel  is snid to be more effective in preventing ilamago to road-beds than  width of tiro.   4   HEAVIEST B'ACIC  BURDENS.  Probably the greatest weights carried ' on tho backs of men for any  distance aro tho loads of oro brought  up from tho mines of tho Andes by  miners of Chili. In a copper mine-in  a ravine' leading from the main  range of tho Cordilleras, all the ore  is carried a vortical distance of 450  foet, and the average weight per man  is 250 lb. This load is carried up  ladders made of "notched trunks of  trees, set almo"t upright, ono touching thc othor.  It is woll known that tho famous  song "Darby and Joan" was written  whilo tho author was listening to his  neighbors quarrelling, but tlioro aro  several otiier songs of equal popularity which originated in an even moro  curious way.  Few peoplo aro awaro that "Tlio  Old Folks at Homo" was brought  about hy the grumblings of al negro  groom. Tho author, Stoplicn Foster,  chanced to bo changing horses at a  Kentucky hostel, when the -negro wiio  unharnessed his liorse happened to  remark ia a surly way, "I'm sick of  this life. I wish I was back with tho  old folks at homo." Foster at onco  asked him wliero that might'bo, and  ho replied, "Oh, way down tho  Swanoe River." Whilo Foster was  consuming a meal at tlio inn preparatory to rcstartinc. on his journey  he wrolo both tho words and music  of tho song, which at onco leaped  into fame.  Signor Den^a wrote "Funiculi  Funiculi," with no, idea that it  would become  A FAMOUS SONG.  Me was then livin-j at tha litllo village of Castollammare, in Italy, and  on tho occasion of thc opening of  tho Mount Vesuvius 'railway im 1880  some of the organi/ers came to hiim  and asked him to writo a song for  thc feto wliich* was boing held. Good-  naturedly enough, Denza sat . down  with the intention of producing a  lively air, which the Italian peasant  loves so well, and in half an hour  "Funiculi' Funiculi:' was the result.  The same day Den-ia sang it himself  at tho fete, nnd ils reception was so  warm that ho published the song,  and soon it bounded into instantaneous fame throughout Europe. -  It-was an accident *-that led Mr,  Milton Wellings to writo his famous  song, "i.omo Day." His wifo had  gono out for a trip in a yacht on a  neighboring lake with somo friends,  and late in the afternoon tho nows  was brought to him that thc yacht  had been upset and tho party  drowned, but tho composer "could  gain no information as to whether  his wife had been saved or not. In  this terrible-suspense.hc could only  walk hi3 room ti-i his eyes alighted on a poem of Hugh Conway's  which was lying on his desk. The  words suited Iris mood so well;that  he sat down and, to kill timo.dashed  off tho music "  *  * ' JN FIFTEEN MINUTES."'  An Army, bandmaster was" responsible for tho song," "The Girl I Left'  Behind Me," being written. lie Had  gained--* a great reputation as a flirt,  and on. thc day his regiment changed  stations,ho -was always absent bidding good-bye to some young lady  to whose charms ho had fallen a victim," thc same process boing repeated  at eacli station. At length', out ;of  tarcasn* one of his~compani<>ns wrote  tho famous sans, which was played  by the band whenever tho bandmaster  rejoined the regiment, and by this  easy stage it camo lo bo the marching-out tuno of lho British Army.  But for a practical joko tho favorite - song, "Kathleen Mavouroen,"  might never have been given to the  world. Tho      composer,     Nicholls  Crouch", wrote it in the train whilst  going to Plymouth bn.business for a  commercial firm, and when thero he  sane, it to Mrs. Rowe, who was well  known in tho musical world. She  asked-him'to sing it at her concert,  but he refused; n's h'o had only a  small opinion of the song himsolf,  ami ho would hnve discarded it altogether had not h'o looked out of  the bedroom window of his hotel the  next morning, to see a placard on  th'o hoarding opposite announcing  that ho would sing the new song,  "KATHLEEN.MAVOUREEN,", -  tliat" afternoon .in Plymouth. ,'--  Annoyed beyond measure. Crouch'  rushed off to Mrs. Rowo's hou.so and  began" to upbraid her soundly for her  impertinence, but"her persuasions at  last prevailed, and that afternoon ho  sang tlio song into fame. 'A* week  later he. sold il to a publisher for  ?50, nnd it is said to have brought  the publisher in- $73,000 within a  few years.

'  -Thomas Hooker rarely sat down  until he had readied the end of his  third hour; and on ono occasion, after passing this limit by a good  thirty minutes, he only resumed his  scat on promising to continue his  discourse on tho following Sabbath.  Once, it is truo, ho electrified his congregation by coming to a full-stop  after fifteen minutes' preaching; but  it was merely to recover from a pas-sing feeling of indisposition, after  which ho resumed his discourse and  continued for two hours longer.  Dr. Isaac Barrow���������of whom Charles  TI, said, "Ho is tho most unfair  preacher in England, because h'o exhausts-overy subject and leaves no  room for others to como after him"  ���������invariably preached tliree hours,  and so fascinating was his eloquence  that the only complaint ever heard  against hint was thnt his sermons  woro too short.  Baxter,    Knox,     Hooper,    Bunyan,  and Calvin rarely preached less than  two  Hours,   and often  saw  tho  sand  run out in tho hour-glass  j FOR TIIE THIRD TIME  before they came to "lastly"; but  not ono of thom all could rival the  prolixity of the Rov.. Thomas Banks,  a soventccnth-cciilury divine, who on  ono occasion, after keeping his congregation ovcr two hours, sard.  "And now, having cleared the  ground by these fow preliminary lemarks, I will address myself more  directly to my text."  An amusing story is told in this  connection of tho Rov. William. St.  George Paterson, ' who, not many  years ago, requested by Dean Bicker-  steth*' to preach for him on the' following Sunday. Tho clergyman, who  objected to thus being made a stopgap, 'declined th'e duty, whereupon  tho Dean, retorted by commanding  him to preach".  ��������� As tliere,was no way of escape Mr.  Paterson' determined to "be level"  with the Dean, and, announcing" as  his text th'o-119 Psulm, he began by  reading his text of 170 verses  through twice.. Then taking, each  verso in turn he delivered-a homily!  on it, finally resuming his seat at  tho closo of the third hour, by which  time the" only - surviving,' member of  the congregation "was the Dcnn himsolf. After tho service tho preacher  said good-byo to tho Dean in tho  robing-room: "-"Good afternoon, Mr.  Dean," Was his parting shot. "I  don't think you'll.command old Paterson to preach again in a hurry."  -In striking contrast to these long-  winded sermons are th'o discourses  which' begin and end, within-a minute, like that - of th'o Roy. Charles  H. Yatmnn a short timo ago at  Ocean Grove, Now Jersey. After  announcing his text he snid,  "DON'T WORRY; IT'S WICKED,"  only that^ and nothing more, and  then sat down. Almost oqually short  was tho sermon of the Rev. Henry  Jackson, an old-time Yorkshire vicar  on the text, "God is lovo." This  was his homily: "If," my friends, I  wero to preach to you for a month I  could add nothing to tho glorious  significance of these throe words; and  so I lcavi* them with' you."  Moro remarkable was th'o sermon  of lho Rov. Andrew Clarke, delivered  a fow " years ago In Chicago. "I  waited patiently for th'o Lord,",was  his' text; ami this wasi his sermon:  '.'Now,, my brethren, I put it -to  you,_if_'Dftvid^.could^.wait_ patiei>tly_  and found it worlh while, why can't  you?"

Tho track-layer has a  hugo crane 60 ft. long, which projects forward over tho rond and  hauls behind it a train of sixteen  flat cars loaded with ties and rails.  A continuous double lino of cars  moves constantly over rollers and  carries tho tics with it. Both rails  and tics arc seized at tho proper  timo by the machinery and placed on  tho rond in front of tho train, whero  they shortly form part of the track  over which it passes.  ABYSSINTAN CUSTOM.  At Axum, in Abyssinia, a singular  custom i.s observed. When any person is injured, lie gets hold, if ��������� possible, of his adversary's garmi-iit and  tics it to Kis own. If he can do  this, th'o offender never attempts to  release himself nor to leave th'e garment behind him, but quietly follows  to tho presence of his superiors who  aro to  j'u<i������c  him.  VALUABLE  HINTS.  Dry, Hard Coughing, with pain  behind tho breast bone, and littlo or  no expectoration, indicates the commencement of an attack of bronchitis..  Foods containing starch arc changed into sugar by ptyulin in tho saliva of the inouth. Sugars pass  easily through thc membranes, and  ara absorbed as nutriment; but  starches do not.

A wina-  cork may bo placed between tho  teeth.  1 he quantity of blood In tho human system is about equal to ono-  tliirtecnth part ot the body weight.  Supposing a person to weigh 130  pounds, ten of this would represent  tho amount of blood.  Thc roots of thc hair are supplied  with blood-vessels. If the blood is  pure, healthy, and abundant, tho  hair grows, and is bright and glossy, nair-washes contain stimulants  to bring blood to tho sculp, but they  arc useless whilo that fluid nunatna  unhealthy.  Rheumatic headache differs from all  others It is prevalent during cast  winds and damp spring weather It  usually occurs in persons with a  rheumatic tendency. Tnduco perspiration, and take a mixture containing  salicylate of soda and colchicum  wino, and use a simple npenont  daily.  Ticvling in tho throat, with" a sensation of dryness, is greatly relieved  by frequently taking half a tea-  spooriful of lomon-juico and glycerine  mixed in equal parts,  troublo ti tho stomach. Try rhis-  trouble in the stomach. Try ehu-  barb, bicarbonate of soda, sulphate  of soda, and gmgor, which make an  excellent and safe medicine.  Tender feet should be bathed every  day in warm water, using a tablespoonful of Tidman's sea-salt to  every gallon. They must bc well  dried; but don't use any powder.  Adenoid growths are small fleshy  masses suspended at the upper r and  back part of the throat. Thev' arc  common among children, causing a  vacant look, and snoring at night,  lhoy prevent proper nasal breathing.  Removal is the only remedy.  Muscular spasms of the feet and -  legs, known as cramp, mav be "treated by rubbing. The "movement "  should bo upwards, " towards tho  body, to aid the circulation. When  rubbing, it is advisable* to use a lub-^  ricant, such" as vaseline, to prevent  any irritation  of the skin.  .Egg-yolks vary in their nutritive  qualities in proportion to 'the inten-"  sity of color. Iron is tho coloring,  matter Brown-shelled eggs havo no  advantage over white ones. - Judged  as an article of diet, a yolk of rich  reddish-yellow is preferable to ono  of a pnler yellow.  Palpitation is functional disturbance of tho heart's action, and not  a disease. It is caused bv indigestion, insufficient rest after meals,  and excessive smoking. In women,  hysteria, and tea are among the common causes.

WESTERN DEVELOPMENT  XV. E. Maclnncs, freight traffic  manager of the Canadian Pacific railway, while in Winnipeg the olher day  spoke interestingly of the progress to  be noted in western Canada. The  development in this province was  specially mentioned. JMr. Maclnncs  said :  "All Canada is enjoying prosperity  at present, but the phenomenal development of the west is hclpiugtlie manufacturers  in   the   eas>t.   This season  there   are  good   crops in Quebec aud  Ontario, with the outlook promising a  record harvest in' the  wheat aiea of  the west.   This, of course, is good for  railway business, and the freight traffic, both   east and west on the Canadian   Pacific,   leaves   little  room for  complaint.     We  are doing our share  of the business.   The central west has  such a large area under  wheat now.  and people in other countries, even as  far as  England, arc cominencing to  know that   it   is a desirable place to  live, that there is uot any doubt concerning  the   future.     I   was over in  England   some   time ago. ancl I could  see that Canada  is  being kept before  tbe people of tbe old country.,  Much  of  the  business   conversation   there  brings in Canada.    The Canadian Pacific has fourteen large steamers ply-  ing on   the   Atlantic between Britain  to Vancouver, and when the demand  for Hour for the Orient roaches the  expected magnitude the trade from  Vancouver will outstrip tbat from the  American ports from which the.Hour  of the Kansas and Washington crop  is now being shipped. All kinds of  business is impioving iu British Columbia. The increase in the price of  copper and the paying markets for  silver and lead hold out splendid  prospects for tlte Pacific province.  Along the E. fc N. line on Vancouver  island, which the Canadian Pacific lias  recently acquited, thore is plenty of  coal ancl timber, and in fact throughout the province the indications are  such that the country will boom verj'  rapidly."���������Rossland Miner. .

A fleet of that magnitude will  carry quite a number of people to this  country during a season, and then we  nre in very close touch witb all the  other big steamship lines.  "There is a development going on  concerning wliich little has been said,  I refer to British Columbia, which is  going ahead now at a wonderful rate.  The unlimited resources of that country are just starting their output.  They have the forests, minerals, fruits  and farming lands, with excellent and  ever-increasing facilities to get the  produce to market. The shipping  done by the Canadian Pacific to the  Orient is growing rapidly. Tbe war  in the east lias helped this trade, and  ���������while it is too early to say what the  effect of the finish of the campaign will  be, there are many evidences that it  , will mean the conveitingof the Japanese and Chinese to the more European manner of living and tho consequent increased consumption of the  heavier articles of commerce, such as  wheat and flour, whicli are produced  in Canada. This idea suggests wonderful possibilities in tbe way or trade  between Canada and the east. With  the market established Canada can  supply it. Fall wheat is now being  produced north and south of Calgary,  in tbe Lethbridge district and in the  Okanagan valley of British Columbia.  Jt is not a long haul from these places  Russia Bagged Vladivock.  The   name   Vladivostock    signifies  " Mistress of the East," and Vladivostock was acquired, founded,  fortified  and equipped in order to make Kussia  the mistress of the East.   The story of  Vladivostock's acquisition    is a very  peculiar and a very interesting   one.  it  is   exceedingly   characteristic    of  Russian diplomacy, and. as it is almost  unknown  to thu present generation,  it is worth re-telling, osppcially as   the  history of Vladivostok may eventually  determine its fate.    Forty-five  years  ago. the English and French  were at  war with China and theallies marched  on Pekin.    Sir Hope Grant and  Gen.  Montauban, who later on was created  Count Palikao, commanded the expedition.   The commanders were gteatly  troiibled by their unacquaintance with  Chinese affairs and by the shiftiness  of the Chinese.   To their delight tbey  were   joined   by   a   charming   young  Russian oflicer of the guards, Xicholia  Pavolitch Ignatief.  who  was twenty-  eight years old. who spoke French and  English to perfection, and  who bad a  marvellous   knowledge    of    matters  Chinese.     Tie provided the commanders with maps, \t ith valuable information which led to the taking of Pekin,  and lie made himself generally indispensable.���������   Thus    hc    became     the  companion,     friend   ancl  confidential  adviser   to   the   commanders of    the  expedition.    When     the    allies   had  taken   Pekin  and  had destroyed  the  Summer Palace in order to avenge the  murder of the European  envoys,  and  when tbe Emperor of China had taken  flight.   Tgnatief  succeeded    c-asily in  persuading the terrified  Chinese  that  the allies hntl come to expel the t-eign-  dynas-ty   and   to   subject     China    to  themselves,   lie  told  them   lhat the  Engliih and French meant to stay in  Pekin permanently, ancl that nothing  would turn them back.     China's only  hope lay m securing  tbe intervention  ofastiong  European  power friendly  to China, such  as Russia.    He,   Ignatief, woulcl he the  mediator  between  the Chinese ancl thc foreign intruders.  He alone was aide to causo the foreign  troops  to   withdraw,   and   he  would  make them retire from Penin provided  the Chinese would cede to Russia the  north   bank   of   the   Amur   and   the  whole of the TJssuri province���������which  reaches from tbe rnoutii of the Amur  and the whole of the Ussuri province���������  which on English maps is now called  the Maritime provinco���������which reaches  rom the mouth of tbe Amur down  W WORLD'S   CHAMPIONSHIP   EVENTS   IN   [ROWING   AND  W  *g Lacrosse,   Horse   Racing*,    Broncho   " Busting," i&  ty Military Parades and Excises.

The Chinese, who  were almost frightened out of theii  wits by the presence of the allies ancl  by their violence, willingly ceded to  Russia tbei territory which Ignatief  desired, with six bundled iniles of  coa'st line; and only a year later Prince  Kung accidentally discovered that  tlie allies bad bad no intention of  occupying Pekin permanently, that  Ignatief bad done China no service  whatsoever, and tlint Russia bad  obtained a valuable Chinese province  bv fraud.

Not since the collapse of tho Big  Bend excitement of 1SG5-0 havo so  many people congregated at 'tho old  townsite of Seymour, at the head of  Seymour Arm, and trodden the old  tvnil that served thousands of fortune  luintors ns they made their way to  and from tho EI Dorado on tho Col-  tlinhiaand its sold laden ttiliutaiies.  The location of the nunieious mineral  claims on what is the most pronounced  and best defined vein in the province,  is responsible for the resurrection of  "the old trail. Scores of men have  already made their way to the new  strike and more go in \\ ith every trip  tho little steamer makes from Sicamous Junction on Shuswap Lake.  The old trail is but little overgrown  ���������with new growth of underbrush but  fallen tiiuber makes travelling irksome in places. The old log bridges  are in most cases just as firm and  sound as the day they were put in,  and even on the large branch of the  Seymour river, the abutments of the  bridge are~in good condition though  the superstructure has long since been  swept away. In the valley at tho  head of the Arm there is a consulei-  Able extent of excellent land suitable  for mixed farming and fruit cultuie,  though the greater pat t of it is, it is  undei stood, held by absentees who  also have" the timber rights. The  quality of the timber is of the finest,  the cedar, fix and other tiees reaching  huge dimensions.  * Upon passing through the heavj  , timber and reaching the higher ground  the growth becomes more open arid  great stretches of wild pasture hinds,  knee deep in luxuriant grasses, greet  the eye and afford feeding grounds for  '' large herds of������cnt iboo.

Tha musicians stole from tho gal-  lory; some servants came into tho  room, half fearfully to turn out tho  lights. The countess and Irene, still  holding Madge's hand, stood us  peoplo stand in the center and shock  of an earthquake. Royce wus pacing  up and down, his head upon his  breast, his lips tightly compressed.  Seymour  had   disappeared.  Tlie entracc of the servants scorned  to arouse the threo women from  their lethargy; Madgo drew her hand  from Irene's and moved across tho  room slowly, with weary, dragging  step.  Royce looked after her for a second,  as  if hesitating.  "do to her, Royce!" murmured  Irene, brokenly. But when he followed her Madge shook her head and  put up her hand.  "I���������I want to bo alone. Do not  come���������yet!"- she said, and Royco  stopped-short.  Madge wont slowly up tho great  staircase. Most of tho lights had  been extinguished in the hail, and a  funeral dimness masked the scene,  had  been so  dazzling.  She went to her own room and  stood loaning ~ against tho bed,  breathing slowly and painfully, and  Marion entered a moment or two after her. The girl looked palo, and  started with a cry of alarm when  sho saw her mistress.  "Oh, madam!" she began tremulously.  "Leave me, Marion," said Madge  in a faint, hollow voice. "Leave mo!  I���������I want to be alono. I will undress  inysolf.    Go,   please!"  Tho girl lingered for a momont,  then slowly and reluctantly left tho  room.  Madge with trembling hands unfastened her dress.  - As she did so, in a vague way sha  missed tho diamond ornaments. For  a second or two she stood as if  trying to remember what had bocomo of them, thon it all flashed  back upon her���������the wholo hideous  scene, and, more clearly than all,  the look of shame and misery upon  Roycc's face.  Yos, she who lovod him so doarly  that she would have given hor life  to spare him a moment's pain had  ruined and degraded him. She had  brought disgrace and humiliation  upon this noble house; the countess'  prophecy had met with speedy fulfillment. She, Madge, had mado herself  a  curse unto  hcr  husband.  All this���������and much moro!���������boro  down upon her, ate into hor heart,  as she stood beforo the glass. What  should she do? *\Vhat could she do?  To repair tho ruin sho had caused  was impossible. Koyce must hate  her! A faint cry broke from her cold  lips at the thought, and she staggered back from the glass at the reflection 01 her own face, which had boen  the cause of his ruin.  What should she do? The question  beat upon her brain with cruel persistence. Presently the answer came,  as if from inner source���������"Go away!  I.<ave him and the house you have  dragged down to your own level. Go,  before worse happens! Tho man Jake  will come back as soon as the money  obtainedby the diamonds is spent;  will come back to work fresh misery  and disgrace.   Go and go at once!"  "Yes." she murmured, "that is  best! I must go, and forever! Jack  bates me���������he must; he could not  help it. He must wish me dead. Oh,  If I could only die! If I had only  died before he saw mo!" and she  clasped her hands over her face.  Jitter^ a__noment^or^two^Bho_gained^  strength to obey the inner voice. She  went to the drawer at tho bottom  of one of the wardrobes, she took  out the old linsey dress and the red  shawl. She would wear no other  dress; nothing that he had bought  hor, nothing that should remind her  or anvone else that she was Roycc's  wife.  With feverish haste, now, she put  on thc dress and wrapped thc shawl  around her; and af; aha looked in tho  glass, a bitter, miserable smile passed over hcr face. It was In this  dress that aha had listened to his  vows of love, and yot the sight of it  now would only remind him of what  she was, and mako him hato hur  moro  intensely.  Sho looked around tho room with  a heavy sigh, and turned to the  door; then, as if she had suddenly remembered It, sho went to tho drawer  and took out tho watch and the  locket. Sho looked at them with  something of a shudder, and put  thom on the dressing-table, but they  seemed to appeal to her with dumb  eloquence, reminding her of tho night  Royce,; all unconscious, had laid with  his head on her bosom, and she  thrust them into her pocket.  Then she opened the door, listened  intently, and went down the corridor. Hall way she hoard footsteps  ascending the stairs. To go back to  her room and be found by Royce, to  face that look in his oyos, was impossible. She pushed the door nearest to hor, and finding it open, entered the room.  It was dark, but sho drew back to  tho farthest cornor from tho door,  and waited. The footsteps ceased,  and sho was about to leave her hiding-place and go on her way, she  heard a voice. It was Royce's and  it came from the adjoining room;  and then, peering about, she saw  that he had entered tho small boudoir next the countess' dressing-  room. The door wa.s ajar, and  "Madge could hoar as plainly as if  she had been In the room itself. At  the sound of Roycc's' voice her heart  leaped with an awfu* craving, and  she stood still.   She wis listening to  that beloved voico for thc last timo,  she told herself���������for the lust time!"  "What is to bo dono?" sho heard  tho countess say, in a voice which  sounded hollow and weak with trouble and weariness.  "God knows!" said Royce, and  Madge know that ho was pacing to  and fro as he had paced in tho ballroom; could picturo his palo, harassed face as plainly as if sho saw it.  "God knows! I feel confused, bewildered, and miserable!" he added  with a groan. "Mother, I ought not  to havo come horo! It was a mistake, a fatal ono! I might havo  known that���������that somo of thom  would find us out, and���������and bring  this upon you. Forgive mo mother!  Ever sinco I was born I havo boen a  troublo to you, and havo disgraced  tho old, namo. and. now���������and now���������"  VYes," said the countess, as if sho  wore communing with herself rather  than speaking to him, "it is disgrace  and ruin!"  "And I have brought it upon you!  he said bitterly.  She turned her head slightly, almost as if she did not understand;  then she put her hand to her brow.  "You mean " she said confusedly.  "I mean that fellow's presence hero  to-night," ho said. "I might havo  known that; he would come after  Madgo and want money. 1 might  havo known! But I did not think;  I thought of nothing but my own  happiness."  "It is tho way with all of us," she  said  almost  absently.  "No," ho said with deep emotion;  "it  is  not  your  way,   mother;     you  havo always thought of others "  She arose with a strange gesture  of denial, then sank into tho chair  again.  "It is I who am to blame," he  wont on.  "Yes," sho assented wearily, "you  have boon to blamo also. God works  in a mysterious way. It was fated  that you should do what you- have  done; that you should bring down  the edifico built upon .sand���������upon  sand!   I am punished."  "You, mother?" hc said, as if ho  did not understand her. Then mf ter a  pause, "What have you done, except  think and act for, my welfare? And  how have I rewarded you? But,  thero, what is ��������� tho iise of talking?  Tho question is, what are we to  do?"  Tho countess remained silent. It  scorned as if she wero too engrossed  by her own thoughts to understand  all he said.  Thore is only ono thing to do,"  ho went on after a moment of silence. "Madge and I must leave here.  Wo ought nover to have come; I seo  clearly enough now. Wo ought to  havo gone away, abroad somewhere;  anywhere where wo weren't known,  and wliero this couldn't have happened.   Poor Madgo!  Poor Madge!"  "Everything has gono wrong. A  curse has  rested   upon  mo  and     the  house  since "     She  stoppod     and  drew a heavy breath. "And yet all  seemed so smooth and straight. My  plans���������and God knows I planued and  schemed for your happiness, not my  own!���������my plans wero going to their  ends  as   if   Providence -had   blessed  them.   Ireno  loved you "  "Mother!" he cried.  "Yes," she said in her persistent  way, "she loved you���������she loves you  still; I know it! I see it plainly  every day. It is not only I who am  wretched! I watch her face; I know  by the look on it, by the tone of her  voico  when she speaks to you  "For God's sake be silent; say no  more/,���������mother!."_ Koyce: broke._,_out  hoarsely.       ���������  "lt is the truth,"  she said    dully  stubbornly;  "yoii have been and  are  I will    give   you  monoy.      Seymour  must givo you "  Royco started, and the blood flow  to hia hitherto white face.  "No," ho said, "not a penny from  Seymour. And mother " ho paused as if roluctant to continue; thon  he forced himself to go on. "Mother  Seymour., wants watching. You did  not seo him in tho card-room, and  did not hear what that man Jake  said."  "Wliat���������what? 'did ho say?" she  breathed.  "Enough to show mc���������all of us���������  that Soymour is���������not what ho pretends to bo," ho roplied. "Ho is a  lie and a fraud! God forgive mo  for speaking so of my brother, but  it is tho truth."  Tho countess shuddered.  "Yos," sho said slowly, painfully;  "ho   is  your    brother���������your   brother.  You say "  "That���������that ho wants watching,"  said Royce.  "I���������I have brought disgraco upon  tho old name, but ho will bring a  worso shamo on it if ho is not prevented.   Ho is tho    sort of man    to  gamble    away every ponny "���������     TTe  stopped, and put his hand to his  brow. "But- I can't think of him  now, mother. It is of Madgo and her  futuro I must speak. Wo will go  to-morrow. I know what she feels,  and I know that sho will not want  to see you���������any of you���������again. We  will pack up to-night, and be off  early to-morrow. Thoro must be  some spot in the world whore peoplo  can't point at us and "  His voice broke. Madgo heard the  countess  moan.  "I shall nevor see you again! Oh,  my boy, my hoy!" broke from her.  Madgo waited no longer. White  to the lips, with an agony worso  than death, she felt her way along  the wall of tho room and sped swiftly, noiselessly, along tho corridor  and down the stairs.  No ono was in the hall. The servants, ovon tho porter, wero congregated in the servants' hall discussing  with feverish excitement the events  of tho night; and sho went straight  to thc groat door, and opening it,  passed out into tho night.  lt was dark and a keen wind v/as  whistling through tho leafless trees.  It seemed to her to bo singing in a  mocking voice, "Trene loved you;  she loves you still!"  Madgo hastened her shawl around  her and stood for a moment, poised,  as it wero. upon thc broad step.  Whither should sho go? The answer  breathed by tho same inner voico  seemed to whisper despairingly���������  "Anywhere from this placo, anywhere!"  Obeying it, a.s before, she passed  down tho stops and swiftly crossing  tho lawn���������across tho light thrown  from the windows of tho still lighted  rooms���������was swallowed up in .the  darkness.

You would have  been rich, you would havo beon  happy, and my great sin would not  have borne its fruit.'1.  Royce went up to her and laid his  hand  heavily on her shoulder.  "What aro you 3aying, mother?"  he demanded hoarsely.   "Your sin���������"  She started and looked at him for  a moment like ono in a dream; then  she put her  hand  to her  brow.  ���������'What havo I said?" she exclaimed  in a trembling voice. "Why do yo"  como here and drive me to despair?  Why "  Then she seemed to recognize him  and her head dropped again.  "What wero you saying, Royce?"  she said. "I���������I am upset and bewildered; I don't know what I am  saying!"  "My poor mother!" ho said, with  a strong man's pity. "God forgive  me for bringing all this upon you:  but there shall bo an end of it froni  to-night; wo will go away, Madge  and I."  She arose and seemed to struggle  for her usual  self-possession.  "Go on," she said in a constrained  voice. "I remember all now. Go,  on and tell your plans.11  "We will go away," ho repeated.  "It will be best for all of us, especially for poor Madge; she would  never bc happy here. I see that now.  I ought to havo foreseen it from the  first, but I did not. Wc will go  abroad to one of tho colonies. J  am strong and can work."  Tho countess, once more calm nnrl  collected, looked before her thoughtfully.  "Yes," sho said, "it will bo the  best.   Poor  girl!"  "Yes, I pity hcr, and I do  wonder at it. I will not blame  for marrying her; no man placed as  you were could havo resisted hcr.  But it was a mad thing to do. Mad!  Yes, you must go." Shc sighed  heavily.    "You  must  go.   But  not  you  Probably few fishermen are awaro  tbat fly-fishing dates back to classic  limes. A minute description of thc  artificial fly as used by Macedonian  anglers ia given by Aelian, a Greek  writer of the third century, A. B., as  follows:  "itctween Berea and Thessalonica  there flows a river. Astraeus by  name, and there in it fishes of a spotted color, but by what name people  of those parts call them it is better  to ask Macedonians. At any rate  these fish' live upon th'e native flies  which" fall into the river and are like  no flies of anv other, part; one would  neither call them wa-splike in. appearance, nor would one reply to a question that this creature is formed  like what we call the hum-blo bees,  not yet like the honey bees themselves. It has really the proper  fashion of each of the above. In audacity it is like a fly, in size it  might be called a bumble bee, in color  it rivals the wasp, and it buzzes like  tKo honey bees. All common creatures of this sort are called horse  tails;���������Thtse-pitch'-upon-the���������stream-  to seek the food they aflect, but cannot help being seen l>y tho fish' which  swim underneath'.  "So whenever one of them sees tho  fly flouting ho comes softly, swimming under tho water, afraid of disturbing tho surfaco and so scaring  away his game. Then ha comes near  tho shady sido of the fly, gapes and  sucks Him in, Just like a wolf  snatching a sheep from the fold or  an eagle a goose from tho yard. This  done, he disappears beneath the ripple. Tho fishermen understand these  manoeuvres, hut th'ey do not mako  any use of those flies for a bait for  tho fish, for if the human hand lays  hold of thom they lose thoir natural  color, their wings fray ami they become uiu!������.tuble to tho fish. So for  this reason they make no use of  them because thoir nature forbids  their capture.  "So with' angling craft they outwit  the fish, devising a sort of luro  against them. Ihey lap a lock of  reddish wool round tho book, and to  tho wood-two cock's feathers which  grow under the wattles, and are  bro,light to th'e proper color with  wax. Thn rod js from six to ton  long and the horsehair lino has tho  same length. 'I'hey lower tho lure.  The lish is attracted by tho color,  excited, draws close nnd, judging  fronn its beautiful nppearnnco that it  will obtain a marvelous banquet,  forthwith opens its inouth, but is  caught, by tho hook, nnd hitler, indeed, is thc feast it. has, iiitvmiich ns  it is enpturcd."  TOWING  UP THE ORCHARD.  I plow as early as practiblo, harrow repeatedly during tho growing  season with a spring-tooth harrow,  often enough to furnish a good seed  bod, and sow mammoth or crimson  clover or both about July 1, writes  Mr. W. H. Hart. I am trying some  of my older orchards by plowing  early in tho spring every othor year  and seeding down at onco with  mammoth clover with a dressing of  fertilizer. This clover is mowed lato  in the season ahd again tho following summer and left on tho ground  as a mulch. I use a fertilizer 10 p.c.  phosphoric acid and C p.c. potash,  the sources being acid phosphate and  muriate of potash. This mixture  may not answer-for all soils, but  has given me good results.  I prefer to thin winter apples in  July before they have drawn on the  vitality of the tree. At this time  they part quite easily from the stem  and tho work can bo done rapidly.  The Northern Spy repays thinning  tho best of any commercial variety,  as large specimens bring fancy prices  and seconds aro nearly valueless. I  would rather thin too little than too  much, as tho loss from wind storms  is likely to bo groator proportionate  ly with larger fruit. Very littlo  thinning is needed whero high cultivation and pruning are practiced.  In spraying, I uso the usual formula of six pounds bluo vitriol in  50 gallons water, with lime added  somowhat in oxcess of tho test by  cyanide of potassium. Among large  trees I like two sprayings soon after bloom with winds in opposite  directions and a third spraying a  week or two later. I prefer arsenato  of lead as an insecticide, using one  pound to 50 gallons water. I uso a  large sizo pump with willing men to  pump and change or double up if necessary, using two lines of hose, ono  25 foet and another 50 foet long,  light bamboo poles, attaching tho  hose at the pole with a spring stop  cock to a i-inch brass tubing tied  to tho pole, terminated by a battery  of four nozzles on each line. If I can  get enough good men I prefer this  outfit to any power machine, as being lighter, morc flexible and less  liable to break down. Whero help is  not obtainable the gas machine gives  good satisfaction.  TREATMENT OF INSECTS.  Among tho most important summer applications for scale insects arc  the following: 1, kerosene emulsion,  dilute as much as ten times for apple, quince, and* pear, and as much  as 15 times for peach, plum and  cherry. For other^ plants the hardiness ' of which is not known, it will  bo best to uso. thc more diluto emulsion. * 2, kerosene , mixturo for tho  San Jose scale upon apple and pear  should be applied as a 20 p.c. mixture. For other, scale insects in their  young stage as well as for the San  Joso scale upon peach, plum and  cherry apply it not stronger than a  12 to 15 p.c. mixture. Spray on a  bright day, when tho air is moving,  although it does not need to be very  windy. 8, whale oil soap used in  warm water at the rate of ono  pound to seven or eight gallons  water. For the San Joso scale ono  should make it a little stronger, using one pound to 'flvo or six gallons  water. 4, common soap, one pound  in four or five gallons water. Good  strong soft soap will bo all right  for ��������� this, especially, > if a littlo carbolic acid, lye, caustic sodp. or caustic potash bo added. Tho lye that is  left from making soft soap is good  for killing such posts. 5, a strong  decoction of tobacco applied as a  spray. Those aro practically the  same remedies for destroying plant  lice.  THK BEST  BREED OF HENS.  The baro statement that there Is  no best breed is very strikingly emphasized so far as egg laying is concerned--by tho���������fecords_ot-the"���������last-  eight egg laying contests of. tho  Utility poultry club of Groat Britain.  In each of these contest's, which continue 16 weeks, four pullets constitute a team. Tho following data  taken from records of this club are  of striking interest at this season  when poultry raisers aro making  changes in their laying stock. Thc  figures which follow tho namo of  each breed represent the number of  eggs laid by the four pullets in the  pen; tho order in which tho birds aro  mentioned starts with tho flrst contest in 1897-8 nnd ends with 190-1-5.

The General Manager stated that tho surplus over all public liabilities was $1,700,000, and over 40 per cent, of the assets immediately  available; tlio proportion of tho latter being 57 por cent, of the total  deposits,  which was a highly satisfactory showing.  Thc overdue debts wero good, and only temporarily past due, the  liank-having- written oil or provided for all bad and doubtful debts out  of the year's profits.  Tho Hank hnd 26,725 depositors -and -6,185 discount customers, making a total of 32,910, which hn considered a splendid clientcllo to have  acquired in threo years. The doposits average but $311 por customer,  and the loans show an average of $1,400 por borrower, which ought to  satisfy the most exacting shareholder.  Excluding directors' applications for tho new Issue of stock, the Bank  had received subscriptions for nearly 5,000 shares, whilo the total issue  was only 3,2.")0. There wero only 27 2 shores left nfter allotment, and  theso have l-.een oversubscribed for nearly ten times. Referring to theso  facts, Mr. .Stewart slated that this was th'e greatest compliment th'o  management of fhe Sovereign Bank could hnve received, and it should bo  a powerful influence In further establishing Uio confidence of lho public  in   thc institution.

AUTHOR CHIMNEY SWEEP  REMARKABLE     HISTORY      07  WALTER  HUNT.  Cleaned Domestic Flues That    He  Might     Study, at   the  Museum.  There havo been learned blacksmiths besido El ihu Burritt,' tho famous American 'one; and *"��������� learned  masons and cobblers oven, and various othcr humblo callings have been  associated with scholarly fame, but  until Walter Hunt was discovered tho  other day, one never had heard of a  loarnod chimney sweep, says a London letter. Cortainly, Mr. Hunt can  claim to bo tho first member of tho  sooty brotherhood who over published a book. It was that .which led to  his being found out. Aro Wo a Declining Nation? is tho titlo of the  work. There can bo no doubt that  much learning and patient research  have been involved in its composition. It is brimful of quotations  from and references to Latin and  Greek authors and modern physiological experts and bristles with statistics and figures. But it is not tho  sort of book that attracts the avor-  agoreador. It is hardly likely that  copies onough will bo sold to justify  Mr. Hunt in abandoning chimney  sweeping for authorship. Howevor,  that docs not bother him much.  Such devotion as ho has shown to  learning is" novor inspired by tho .  more desiro to. make it pay.  HE IS 48 YEARS OLD,  short of figure, gray-hatred and gray  bearded, but still strong and agilo.  For thirteen years ho was a sailor  in tho British navy. Then ho camo  ashoro nnd for a few years was attached to tho London fire brigade,  all tho members of which are required to bo former sailors, because that  is supposed to afford a guarantee  that they aro spry on their legs and  good climbers. c  Tt was while in tho firo brigado  that tho thirst for knowledge seized  him. Up to that time, as ho acknowledged, hc had not differed much  from the ordinary man who earns his  living by manual toil. But when tho  thirst had once gripped him ho found *  that thore was no getting rid of it.  He had to gratify it or submit to  having life mado a grievous burden  to him. It was that ho might find  opportunities for study that ho turned chimney sweeper. At first glance  it would scorn that ho could hardly  havo selected a "calling moro ill-suited  to tho cultivation of scholarly  tastes. But Hunt know what he  was about. He had his eye on tho  treasures of tho British Museum.  They aro . acccssiblo_ only to those '  who can conduct their researches by  daylight. - At, night���������which is tho  only timo when most folk "who have  to ..work for a living can find loisuro  for: study���������the great reading-ro'om is  closed. Therefore, Hunt decided that  ho would earn his living by somo ,  work which would give him' plenty of  DAYLIGHT, .LEISURE..  Because it is such unpleasant,"messy  work and   personal - contract with ��������� a  chimney  swoop  is    objectionable    to *  them, most     folk   insist' on    having  .  thoir  chimneys   swept     beforo ' they  turn -   out     of bed.   A.s  ix rule,' the  , -  chimney swoop's duy's work is done  beforo  that  of the average businessman begins.   Tt .was  that considcra- '  tion which made Mr. Hunt turn chimney sweep.  * He  settled    in a   ' back street -    of  Strcatham,   ono  of  thc  districts     of -  London    where    most    of tho inhabitants  aro fairly woll  off and   don't  neglect their chimneys. .    As soon as  his work was done he would chango  his clothes; givo himsolf a    thorough  washing and hie away to the British' .  Museum,   No ono ever recognized   in  tho     neatly    clad,    kcen-eyod, clear-  skinued voracious   decourer  of books '  tho soot-begiumcd individual who^do-  votod tho early    morning hours    to  cleaning Streatham's chimneys.  Whonjin tho navy, voyaging in faraway seas. Hunt had noticed how.  contact .with Europeans caused- deterioration among' savage races, and ���������  in random . fashion had speculated  upon it a great deal. "'When ho began reading for a purpose-the, subject��������� agai*i���������uttracted���������hlm,��������� but-'along---'-  much broader lines. For years ho  devoted himself to. a study- of tho relations between national morals and  national vigor and vitality. Finding that much valuablo data could  bo obtained front French scientific  works which had never been translated, into English, ho attended an  evening continuation school until ho  had acquired a sufficient  MASTERY OF FRENCH  to bc ablo to read' tho French books  dealing with tho subject. Ho is now  sotting about mastering Greek thoroughly that he may read Plato and  Homer  in  tho original.  This chimney sweep scholar "-is far  from being a mere bookworm. Naturo attracts him .as much as does  tho British Museum. In tho slack  season for his trade���������tho summer  time when peoplo need fires only for  cooking���������he mounts,his bicycle and  wanders far ovor th'o' country, content with plain faro and humble  lodgings and not above doing an occasional odd " job for his bed and  board. Ho   has   acquired  a good  philosophy as' well as scholarship  and has entirely escaped that complaint which spoils so many self-  made men���������tho "swelled head." ��������� Ho  sees nothing extraordinary in what  ho has dono. "With pcrseverenco,"  ho snys, "anyone can got knowledge  in these days'. It is only a question  of getting started."   f   BRILLIANT  BILLY.  A tale of financial difficulties,  but  having a happy ending, is thus told  by tho Yale Record:  Bill had a bill-board. Bill also had  a board bill. The board bill bored  Bill, so that Bill sold the bill-board  to pay his board bill. So after Bill  sold his bill-bor.rd to pay his board  bill, the board bill no longer bored  Bill.  t Lady���������"Arc *..tncM������. your . cr.tldren?

It is  made of rattan, woven with braided  straw 'strands in a mixture of green,  straw color and red.  Tho.scmitailored gown Is the latest outgrowth". The skirts of these  gowns are as correct in line and finish as tho tailor's art" can make  them, while the jackets or coats aro  exquisitely made, and are more or  less elaborate. Worn over dainty  lingerie or silk blouses, they aro bo-  coming and appropriate for almost  any occasion.  ,T'ho embroidered collar and slcevo  trimming of linen or other wash material upon frocks of wool or silk  is one of the season's fads, and another fad is tho use of velvet collars  upon linen ami other tub materials,  lending themselves to a tailor finish.  Skirts grow wider and wider. Even  the moderate ones arc now at least  five yards around the hem, while  cieht are not too many to be considered for skirts of thin material.  Materials' Have'to bo cut into many-  gores to make tliis great width possible. As' a consequence, perhaps, or,  at least, a compensation, skirts are  trimmed hardly at all 'except those  of elaborate costumes. The hem appears on nearly all thc "new tailor-  made and demitoilet'skirts.  A novel waist of white Japanese  ."silk has a shoulder .band extending  over the sleeve tops of line tucks.  Tucks also make a front panel. Tho  shoulder bands are bordered with .an  elaborate lace' insertion which' also  edges, thc front panel of tucks ��������� and  curves at each side in bolero "effect.-  A vertical-band of the lace, ending in  n whimsical curl, trims each sleeve.  Stocks and cuffs arc made of the  lace.  Ono Fees plenty of shepherd's plaid  traveling- gowns, and very cool and  appropriate they seem. Somehow  these gowns, ' made.. with short,  plaited skirts and short bolero jackets, seem exactly the right thing for  tho woman who is at her best in a  mannish linen shirt waist.

With the plaited waist,  of course, there is nothing smarter  than pique or plain linen stock or  four-in-hand, and -these are -too inexpensive "in'the. shops to be troubled  about at home, but it is wise' to  look to tho fit-of them, for if of tho  straight sortj that is^ if not Carved  fn   fit.' 1*hr>"-npelc   nt-^tlifT^lowTir    rtirltre,���������  WORK-WORN    MEN, "  Can   Obtain     New    Health     and  Strength Through Dr.*,Wil-  ���������'.."."

Then I felt that I was  almost at death's door, while now I  am strong and well. This happy  chango is entirely duo to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I am a working-  man, and It is littlo wonder that  after years of diligent toil my system wns gradually run down. My  blood got as thin as water, and I  grow so poorly that tho least exertion would leave me weak and trembling. I consulted a������ doctor, who  said that! 1 was run down through  hard work, but his medicine did not  help me any. A few weeks later .1  was forced to quit work, and shortly after that had to remain in bed  most of tho time.

Boforo tho second box was  finished I had a better appetite and  relished my meals, and with this  came new strength. In a few���������wceks I,  was able to go out again, and ' in  about six weeks from 'the'time I began using tho pills I wa's able tb rectum to work, my health completely  restored amd my strength as vigorous as ever it had been. I attribute  my completo recovery entirely to Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, and 'i think  every hard working man would ,bo  bettor for using a box of these pills  occasionally.

Prevalent    in    Summer Months ���������  -  What a Mother Should Do.  Children are more likely to be attacked by diarrhoea during the summer months' than at any other season. It is one of the most dangerous symptoms of illness-in a child of  any age. But it should be remembered that diarrhoea is a symptom,  not a disease. Never try to stop  diarrhoea, because it is an -'effort of  nature to cleanse the bowels and get  rid of the , decayed food-stuffs in  them. Diarrhoea is bad���������but things  would be worso for*the child "if diarrhoea didn'.t come. While a mother  should *nevorl try. to stop diarrhoea,  she should stop'thc cause. Diarrhoea  is. a syniptoii of indigestion having  sot up decay in' the food that is in  the"bowclsr-and-thciwuy-to=cure-;it:-is-  to cleanse " the' little tender bowels'  with Baby's Own Tablets. It would  seem strange to treat diarrhoea with  a laxative, if wo didn't 'remember  the cause of it. Both diarrhoea and  constipation are tho results of indigestion assuming different forms, and  both aro cured by Baby's Own Tablets. But the Tablets arc more than  ��������� a mere laxative They aro absolutely  a specific for all the minor ills that  como to infants nnd young children,  whether a now-born hnbo or a hoy or  girl ton or twelve years. Here's a  bit of proof. Mrs. ("ioo. McGregor,  Hamilton, On*., sa'vs:���������"When iny  baby was teething he had diarrhoea,  was vcry cross and did not ' sleep  well. I gave him Baby's Own Tablets, nnd thero was no moro trouble.  I now alwaysi givo him tho Tablets  when he has aDy littlo ailment, and  he is soon better." At this season  no mother should bo without Baby's  Ow n Tablets in the house., You can  gel thom at medicino dealers or by  mail at 25 cents a box by writing  tho Dr. ��������� 'Williams' Medicine * Co.,  Brockvillo,   Ont   1   A USEFUL MEMBER.  The smnll son of a clergyman who  was noted for his tiresome sermons  overheard two friends of his father  saying how dry they wero and how  hard it was to keep awako during  tliem. Thc following Sunday, while  tho minister was preaching, ho was  astounded to sco his son throwing  pebbles at tho congregation.

You go on  preaching; I'll keep them awako."  waged war much as do savage races  at this present  day. .  ���������Now, of course, all' this ia altered.  Modern scientific warfare is hedged  around with as many rules and regulations as is modern =scientific football, nnd the same penalty is incurred for foul or unfair play���������namely,  the stern disapprobation pt tho  spectators.  The rules of \*?ar were never played  so scrupulously as they are now.  Even the slightest hint from* ono  belligerent that its opponent is not  observing tho rules of war brings the  eyes of the wholo civilized world to  bear on  THE ALLEGED OFFENCE.  Should ono belligerent havo causo  to complain of the hehavious of thc  othcr, it makes a formal protest to  the neutral nations, provided those  nations were signatories at tho  Peace Convention at the Hague to  that rule of war alleged to be broken. Up to the present, however,  thore have been few complaints during tho Russo-Japanese war, 'and  oven those have mostly been traced  to the independent actions of a few  soldiers. '  The presence of a sick or wounded  soldier in a dwelling Houso confers  protection upon it, and exempts its  other occupants from having ��������� troops  quartered upon them. Commanders  are forbidden to requisition thc property of such occupants.  Wounded prisoners of war must bo  sent back to their own country as  soon as cured, on condition of not  returning lo the seat of hostilities,  or again bearing arms during tho  rest of tho war.  POISON PROHIBITED.  Amotfi.other thines prohibited are  tho employment of poison, or of  poisoned arms or projectiles, or of  "anv arms, projectiles, or material  of a nature to cause superfluous injury.  lt is also unlawful for a commander to issue an order that no quarter is to be given; nor may nny  town, fortress or otiier place bo given over to pillage, even when taken  by assault.  Moreover, an enemy, having ' surrendered, or laid dow������,his arms,  must not bu killed or wounded. Nor  is it permissible to kill or wound  treacherously individuals" belonging  to the'hostile^natidn' or^ army, even  although these may be under arms  at tho time.  Making improper use of a flag of  truce, or anv other ensign or banner,  or dressing in the enemy's uniform in  order to deceive the said enemy, is  also barred; - and .commanders - must  not" attack "or bombard -towns, villages, habitations or buildings which  are not defended.  BULLETS THAT FLATTEN.  Tho use of small-arm projectiles,  "which expand or flatten easily . in  the human body, such as bullets with  a hard^ envelope, which does not entirely cover tho core, or is pierced  with incisions," was prohibited at  tho Peace Convention at The Hague  in 1899.  But to this the representatives of  GrcatBritain would not agree, asserting that the use of the "dumdum" bullet���������against which thc  clause was obviously aimed���������was 'essential for the safety of civilized  troops waging war -against savage  races, such as our soldiers had frequently to  encounter.  Neither would we assent to tho  clauses prohibiting the dropping of  explosives from balloons, and making  it unlawful to firo. at an enemy projectiles charged with'asphyxiating or  deleterious ^.ascs.  No oxception wns, however, taken  by us^ or any .other nation, to * the  vcry stringent regulations adopted  as. regards spies. Formerly these unfortunates got exceedingly short  'rfiriftS--'hnd-ovcniamo!iglhu'mane^coin-  mandcrs. that but littlo care was  taken to sift the charges against  suspected  individuals.  Now, however, no spy, even although taken in tha act, may bo executed without fair and proper trial;  and a spy who, after rejoining tho  army to which-hc belongs, is subsequently captured, becomes a prisoner  of war, and cannot be punhfhed for  his previous acts of espionage. ���������  , )   THIS VETERAN  WM SEASONS  WHY HE PINS HIS FAITH  DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS.

"In tho channels which traverse  thc marshes of certain districte in  Central Africa," writes a traveller,  "hippopotami in incredible numbers  are met with���������sometimes in herds  of sixty and seventy. Wherever the  channel widens out into a reedy lake  rows " of grotesque-looking heads,  with cars erect, appear- abovo tho  water surface, theii owners studying  the extraordinary ������Dparition producod by tho steamer. On approaching tho spot these heads disappear  one. after the other under water, and  a scries of waves and largo ripples  indicate 'the passage" of tho monster  forms below,the suifnce.' Afteru. a  fow minutes' time the same huge  heads appear, generally down-stream  ol 'the boat. They, have another  stare-and;_againl_dfsoj2pear,^witl������_^a  snort and the expulsion of a small  volume of water from the nostrils.  Not infrequently a severe buiaip is  felt in tho steamer, making the whole  hull quiver, as tho back of a hippopotamus seeking to escape hus touched it.  "If tho water should happen to be  ���������shallow .the attempts of these animals to hlrio themselves are ludicrous  as their movements are clumsy and  their anger an'd lenr are evident. In  such cases their Heads and thc foreparts of thoir bodies are under water,  and nothing is seen but th'o huge .pink  hind-quarters, struggling, kicking  churning " up the water in tho effort  to get out of sight. Although their  uncouth antics may oc safely watched from a steamer, it is a vcry.different matter if the observer is in  a canoe or. a smnll boat. Then his  position is one of considerable  danger, as ho stands a- very good  chance  of being upset.    ,  As tho water of all these channels swarms with crocodiles such a  contingency is -not pleasant to contemplate. TKe natives are fully.alivo  to this risk and never venture in  th'eir dugout canoes into tho broad  streams infested with hippopotami,  but invariably keep to tho shallow  and narrow branrhes on either sido  of tho main river."  _ f   UNBEARABLE.

English  tradesmen, finding the correct word  bruyero somewhat diflleult for the  English tongue to pronounce, reduced it to briar, and in this way the  corruption crept in, and was established by popular usage. Originally  Swiss peasants made snuff-boxes of  this wood, and when snufl-taking he-  came unfashionable tho peasants  turned their attention to making  pipes from tlie root, and found a  ready market for them.

The financial district meeting of the  Kamloops district was convened this  year at Tappen Siding, a point quite  central for all, being equi-distant from  Kamloops, Revelstoke and Vernon.  This point was chosen partly because  some of the members concerned we're  already there, and* partly because the  place in itself aff did "every convenience  for the meeting tind a splendid oppoi-  tunity for a few days rest and relaxation, t.  The meeting was "called at nine  o'clock on Wednesday, the 9th, with  Rev. T. A. Wood, of Salmon Arm, in  the chair, and Rev. O. H. M. Sutherland, of Revelstoke, at the. secretary's  table.

D,, of  New Westminster, local supei intend-  ent of missions, was also present.  The meeting discussed the advisability of establishing educational and  evangelistic work among the Chinese  at Revelstoke, similar to that nheady  carried on at Kamloops, and finally  made such recommendations to the  proper authorities.  A resolution was passed to secure  the services of the Rev. Goro Knra-  btiragi, B. fid, ot Vancouver, superintendent of Japanese Missions in Brith-h  Columbia, to attend tho annual missionary meetings" of tlie Kamloops  district, giving information and  ct eating interest concerning missions  among the people of the " Empire of  tho Rising Sun."  Thc meeting expressed its approval  of the recent appointment of the Rev.  Jas. Turner as local superintendent of  Chinese missions.  So delighted were the members with  tho possibilities of Tappen as a summer  camp that the meeting appointed a  committee consisting of O. F. Lindmark, Dr. Gerry, Wm. Skinner, T. A.  Wood, C. H. M.
