Low Prices  C B, HUME & CO,  Department Store  FRUIT CROWING  IN REVELSTOKE  An Expert's Opinion on the  Possibilities of such an Industry here���������A Fruit Growers  Association Wanted.  Mr. H. Kipp, of Chilliwack, father  of Mis. A. J. McDonell, of the Hotel  Revelstoke, spent a couple of days in  the city tbe latter end of last week.  Mr. Kipp is one of the pioneers of the  province, having settled at Chilliwack  in 1804, over 40 years ago. He is also  one of the most expert fruit growers  in British Columbia, and is a member  of the executive of the British Columbia Fruit Growers' Association.  In an interview with a Herald  representative Mr. Kipp stated that  he was on his return from attending  a meeting of the Fruit Growers'  Association at Nelson, and decided to  lay over at Revelstoke for a day or  two to see what the possibilities of  this place were as a fruit growing  centre, and from what he had gathered in conversation with some of the  residents of the city and from what  he had seen he was of the opinion that  the possibilities of Bevelstoke as a  fruit growing centre were excellent.  During his stay in the city he visited  P; B. Peterson's garden and was surprised at the- number of fruit and  ornamental trees which had been  planted out and were doing well without irrigation, showing that the  climatic conditions of this district  were admirable for this purpose.  Another point in Bevelstoke's favor as  a fruit growing community was the  fact that the late spring frost did not  effect the plants. In this respect  Bevelstoke was more fortunate than  Chilliwack district, where on the 18th  of May last the strawberry crop was  considerably damaged by a late frost.  Continuing, Mr. Kipp said, that  there were many acres around', the  city, which could be',utilized- for fruit  growing and~he expressed'surprise  tha������~the* people^'of' this" vicinity "had  not woke up to the'great possibilities-  in this direction long ago. The- soil  was not mnchto look at, being sandy  in appearance,' but when you find the  product good theie'could be no ques^  tion as to its nature. Mr. Kipp was  quite enthusiastic over the prospectp  and considered that in: a short time  sufficient fruit could be grown here  for home consumption.!  In order to find out just how far the  fruit country extended Mr. Kipp went  up the line as far as Rogers Pass, but  while he found the conditions there  for growing garden stuff good, there  was not much chunce for fruit and he  considered that Revelstoke was ths  terminus of the fruit growing country  on the main line of the C. P. R., until  Golden and the Upper Columbia Valley was reached.  Mr. Kipp strongly advocated the  organization of a branch of the B.C.  Fruit Growers Association in Revelstoke. The membership fee for local  associations'is"'$rper headrone half-of  which goes to the parent association  for affiliation fees.- The local association would be incorporated under the  Farmers' Institute Act, which would  cost $10; and this is practically all the  DEUTSGHMAN'S  DISCOVERY  ���������Tift  J&.-**-'  Nothing Equalling: this Great  Natural Wonder in Fantastic  Magnificence of Grandeur is  Known to Exist Elsewhere.  The Toronto ������*toe of Saturday,  July 22nd, in addition to an illustrated  write-up of the famous Deutschmau  Caves, contains the following editorial  reference thereto :0 ���������-  "The marvellpus'marble cave, newly  discovered by Charles Deutschman in  the Rockies, and*>'described and illustrated in The Globe"'Magazine section  to-day, will interest the whole people  of Canada; and as its beauties become  more widely known and are rendered  more accessible", it will  attract  the  attention  of  the-scientist   and   the  tourist the world-.over,  for  nothing  equalling this great natural wonder in  fantastic magnificence or grandeur of  design is known   to   exist  elsewhere.  'The walls are of Asolid marble,   and  have been slowly 1 carved during centuries by the ceaseless rush of torrents  of snow water.'   This is not a sentence  from some new, Arabian Nights tale  as it well might be; it is a plain 'statement of fact in the report of Engineer  AV. S. Ayres to the Dominion Government, but there is compressed within  it a wonderful story! of the mysterious  working of nature;   Year by year the  beauties of  thej Canadian  Alps  are  more appreciated by the travellers of  both the new and.old; worlds.    New  marvels are found at .every turn  as  exploration is pushed into the recesses  of the mighty', mountain  chain.    Already two railways traverse their wide  bosom, soon a.third will follow, and a  fourth; while numerous spurs jut out  to.populous towns and new centres 'of  life and industry.     Not   many' years  will pass .before the mountain peaks  of Canada will attract .a vast volume  of- tourist* traffic'fromi-foreign '"lands.  The present discovery is but.one.in-an  endless chain of natural-winders'.'-'r  "It remains to be added ithat The  Globe is much indebted������,to .the. enterprise and courtesy of ,'Mrs. Arthur  Sprag^e of- Toronto for the material  contained iu to-day's magazine." S  The Premier's Suit.  expense attached to the establishment  of such an organization. By affiliating  with the B. C. Association a local  branch -would derive considerable  benefit in the way of practical advice  and hints as to the proper cultivation  of different kinds of fruit. Such an  association need not necessarily be  composed of fruit growers only, but  all interested.in the growth and prosperity of the city should become members. Mr. Kipp expressed the hope  that the residents of the town and  district would take this matter up,  and stated that any assistance or information required would be cheerfully given,by the executive of the B.  C. Fruit'Growers* Association.  Mr. Kipp left for his home in Chilliwack on Saturday morning.  Can Get an Opinion.  Tlie Rossland Miner in reporting the  victory for the McBride government,  in All>erni Inst Saturday! says;  "J. A. Macdonald, leader of the  opposition in the legislative assembly,  was asked last night if he had any  comment to make on the result  received thus far, but declined to issue  any statement for publication."  We do not wonder at Mr. Macdonald's silence, but if the Rossland  Miner wants an interview on the  lecent Alberni contest, they can get  it either from Hon. John Oliver, of  Delta, or the Wise Editor of tbe  Kootenay Mail.  We do not blame the Hon. - R. McBride ��������� for going after the Victoria  Times for libel.: The Mining Standard  aims to cut out politics as' much as  possible, but politics is one thing and  rank personal. abuse is anothei', and  the latter is no part of the function,  that newspapers were created to fill.  It is one thing for the individual to  abuse his fellow man. He probably  has few hearers. When a newspaper  abuses a man they have the whole circulation list for hearers. That constitutes libel if the paper cannot substantiate its charges. We do not  believe the charges are true.  Any man that can stand off the  gang of railroad grafters that the  Hoi?._Mr._McBride did, during the  last session, can't be very far wrong.  The Government may have many  shortcomings, but it had' the shortcomings of a good many governments  before it to stand the brunt for. Politics is a game that we, as a mining  paper, may not be on to. But the  earmarks of honesty seem to lie with  the present Government, and the only  reason they cannot do better, is that  former administrations have, run the  pace so swiftly, that there is little in  sight for the present administration to  work from. * Give them a show. A  newspaper that has its vision blinded  by the passion of partizanship, has  outlived its usefulness to the community. Merely because a man is a Liberal  or a Conservative is no reason why he  has not the same right to express his  opinion as any other man. Such a  man or newspaper, which cannot see  the good as well as the bad is an  enemy of progress. Life is too short  to get mixed up in trying to understand the ways and wherefores of the  present suit. We honor the man who  had the sand at last to come out and  stand off a ring of railroad grafters,  who have become so emboldened by  previous successes, that they thought  they had a Bnap in forcing on the  country a burden of perpetual taxation  for the enrichment of a gang that has  already brought the nose of this  province to the grindstone.���������Sandon  Standard.  Major Walsh Dead  Kingston, Ont., July 25.���������Major  Walsh, flrst commissioner to the  Yukon, died to-day. He had been  sick only a week with paralysis and  brain trouble,  The Y M C A.  Mr.  George  Irving, Field Secretary  for the  Canadian  West of the Y. JI.  0. A., has been in the city for tho pust  week arranging for the establishment  of  a   branch association here and for  the erection of a suitable building for  the purposes of   the Association.   On  Sunday  afternoon   about fifty people  attended  a  meeting in Selkirk Hall,  when Mr. Irving addressed the gathering on the work of  the association  in  different parts of   Canada and the  United  States.     A    committee  was  appointed to look after subscriptions  for  the   building  fund   and who an  now at  work  with splendid success.  The 0. P. R.  railway employees committee have guaranteed to raise .$5000  of  which   $2700 has already been secured.   , The city committee's list now  aggregates about $3500 and an efforl  is   being   made   to   raise the total to  $10,000 by Satuaday night.   Tlie C. P.  R. Co. will be asked for a free site and  'financial assistance.   The amount required  for  tho* projected  building is  $15,000.     The   movement   is meeting  with  every  encouragement from the  business men as well as the employees  of the railway and lumber mills.   The  ladies of the city, too, are interesting  themselves, and in consequence of  all  working   together  success should  be  assured.  ALBERNI GOES  CONSERVATIVE  William Manson Leads at nearly Every Poll���������Has Majority  of 64 with Two Places yet to  be Heard From.  Victoria, July 25���������The government  candidate,''Mr. William Manson, is  evidently elected by a satisfactory  .Majority in Alberni. Though the returns from the constituency are uot  quite complete, those received are  ample to indicate a substantial victory over the opposition nominee. Mr.  Hugh Aitken. The following are the  latest returns to hand :  Manson Ait ken  Alberni.     54  Bainfield   Wellington      Parksville   New Alberni.

When Cozad's California Dog, Pony  and Monkey circus appears here it will  be discovered that a complete entertainment lasting over two hours can  be given wholly by animals instcad of  human actors. These carefully trained pets perform the principal roles in  dramas arid comedies and in addition  give a complete vaudeville'program.  First comes the grand military drill  in'which one hundred pretty prancing  ponies take part, lead by the wise  pony leader, "Roseberry." They  march and countermarch and'go  'through difficult evolutions with the  precision of highly trained soldiers.  Then. comes the joyous'* May :Pole  ^dance.when clustered around the sawdust' arena, .v some "dozen.- children  mounted on the dimunitive Shetlands,  go,- through the mazes of' the dance.  The- demure ponies enter into .the  festive spirit as well as-the youngsters  and no prettier sight has ever been  seen. Then come the sagacious dogs  who perform - the part of fire-laddies.  A; minature house is: in flames, the  intrepid, firemen -rush to. the rescue  with their tiny hose carts and soon  have a stream playing upon the burning building; a baby is rescued from  the flames; a patrol filled with dog  policemen dashes up and assists the  dog firemen. The clown dogs, ponies,  and monkeys all the while furnishing  lots of hilarity for the little ones.  This is but an outline of the many  startling wondars to be seen with Cozad's California Equine, Canine and  Simian paradox when it appears here  on Monday-next, July 31st, afternoon  and evening.  Majority.for Manson, Conservative,  (incomplete) 04.  This leaves only Cape Scott and  Quatsino to be heard from, which  places are not likely to materially  alter the result, if they do not increase  Mr. Mansoii's majority.  _ Irish_ Guards. _Band_  The coming attraction of the season  will no doubt be the appearance here  of the famous Royal Irish Guards  Band. Particulars of this���������the leading musical organization of its kind in  Great Britain���������famous band will be  found in another column. Company  5 of the R. M. R., under whose auspices the band will appear in ltevelstoke, are arranging for special rates  on the O. P. R. so that visitors from  surrounding points may also have the  privilege of enjoying this rare treat.  The officer who will be in charge of  H. M. Irish Guards Band on their  forthcoming visit to Canada, will be  Lieut. Viscount de Vesci, who is descended from the great Baronial  family of De Vesci. The Vesey family  have for a century and a half occupied important commands in Great  Britain's army and navy. The concert in Revelstoke will take place in  the skating rink on October 2nd.  The Standard Mines.  O.'J. Rumens, superintendent bf the  Prince Mining Co., Standard Basin,  came down from the property on  Tuesday evening. The , Standard is  keeping up its record as the biggest  gold-copper property in the interior.  The development work now proceeding is keeping up the big showings of  high grade ore. The Standard leads  are now developed over 500 feet from  the surface and the values increasing.  The Company's property is now beyond the experimental stage, and has  shown up the faitli always held by the  owners that the ore bodies would enlarge and beeome richer as depth was  attained.  Sign Your Name.  The Mail publishes a couple of letters in its last issue.-'-' One of them is  sig'ned "A Catholic," the other "Citizen." Both letters are attacking Rev.  "VV-. C. Calder personally.

Calder,  providing they sign their names to  the same, thereby giving them the  advantage- of the wider circulation of  the Herald.  The Alberni Election  The editor of the Kootenny Mail  and yie editor of the Nelson Daily  News will please take notice that the  Hon. John Oliver, leader of the Opposition to the Opposition, and the Hon.  J. A. MacDonald, leader of the Opposition to the opposition of the Hon.  John Oliver were in Alberni for a  couple of weeks and have since  returned to their respective homes.  Tho Hon. John's sword has been recast into a plow share and the sword  of the Hon. J. A. was lost in the  " Sound of Defeat " on the west coast.  Hon.-Richard-McBride_will_no-doubt  give an interview to the Opposition  to - the Opposition newspapers  through the columns of the Vancouver  World.  The Cave       _____  The Revelstoke Herald has published an illustrated edition aliout thc  maul 1110tli cave that was discovered  east of Revelstoke this spring. The  edition is well gotten up and the scoi-y  is quite interesting, and the new discovery is sure to come prominently  before "tourists through the advertising that it will thus receive.���������Camborne Miner.  A New Company takes Hold of  the   Mine   with    Substantial-  Backing���������Development Work  Will be Pushed Ahead.  A new company,   called   the   Camborne   Mining   Co.,    was   formed   at  Calumet, Mich., on  the 21st June to  take over the affairs   of   the   Northwestern Development Syndicate, Ltd..  and the Gold Finch Mining Co.,   Ltd.,  and a circular has been  forwarded to  the shareholders   in   these companies  acquainting  them  with   the   plan of  organization.        After  giving   details  concerning thc causes   that were   responsible for the   failure   of the   old  companies,   the   circular    says    thus  about the Camborne group and  Gold  Finch :���������  "You have a property, the purchase price of which is fully paid, a  ten-stamp mill, with foundations for  ten more heads, rock crusher, ore bins  all complete, gravity tram about one  mile in length, an electrical power  house, and plant fully equipped with  water wheel and dynamos, generating  sufficient power to run the stamp mil!,  electric drills and electric lights for"the  mine, mill and buildings, a water  right of 500 inches with"a* fall of 80 to  100 feet, blacksmith' shop, ��������� boarding  and cook.house, mine and assay offices  in fact a fully equipped mining plant  needing only a small amount of repairs to be in full worsing order.  About $12,_00in bullion has been  produced from the Gold Finch claim  since operations were commenced 011.  it. The runs have always been good..  Mr. Rosenberger, who was manager,  of the property ,in 1901 says in his  July. 1901 report. 'With the necessary  improvements, it is safe to state that  ore milling $3.00 per ton can be made'  to-pay a small net profit above the,,  cost of mining and 'milling with the"  present plan. -.Ore being extracted byjj  development-work-'and -milling'-������3.00  should supply 75, per cent of the. nece's  sary. funds to explore and develop'the  property.- By.adding another, t'eri  stamps to the mill it is quite probable  that the mill could be made to carryall development and exploration work.'  "No development work whatever  has been done on some of the claims!  There are nine claims comprising the  property. The work, which has already  beeu performed on the Gold Finch  claim has lead us to the conclusion  that we have a valuable property. The  object of the plan herein submitted to  you is to provide an adequate and  equitable method of raising sufficient  funds to pay off the small indebtedness of the" Gold Finch company���������  some $1,300, and to provide the new  company with "working capital.  "We have organized a mining company, whose stock shall be subject only  to such assessments as will bc necessary.  to vigorously prosecute work on the  property.   The plan is  to change the  present_non-asseisable_stock_of__tbi_*   Gold Finch company and the Northwestern Development Syndicate,  into assessable stock in a new company.

Tlis great hat  was across his knees, nnd his hands  were folded patiently ovcr lis brim.  When tho younger man approached  Chiubei did not look tip or speak.  On his face -shone the palo light of  everlasting peace.  aninto Bay or through the bramble-  deep fields of the Taharazaka I'nss  in a  march  with  torches  and rilles.  His first name .was Chiubei, his  family name Kato, which was added  to his adhress after tiie JUeiji restoration, when the new government of  tho Mikado abolished lho old law  forbidding a farmer to have a family  name.  Chiubei stood under the overhanging piazza roof at the front of a seed  store, looking at tho various seeds iu  the bamboo show baskets. Tie intended to buy somo turnip seed, but without speaking to a salesman in the  store, iie stood there silently wailing  to be addressed first, for it wus hi.s  old family maxim that "he can buy  goods with less money when ho is  asked for a purchase than when asking for  it."  There were two young salesmen  squatting upon the Intuitu' floor and  leaning against a great charcoal  brazier. From tho expression on  Chiubei's fnee, they knew at onee  that the old farmer wauled to buy  something. One of tho salesmen  whispered to the other:  ������������������"These* ignorant farmers always  make me tired for they think they  can buy goods with loss money when  we ask them to make a purchase!

Tho Mystery  Is  No   I.eso  a    Mystery Than  It  Was   Years  Ago.  It is said that the Colonso reverse  to tlio British arms during tho last  South African campaign was reported by natives in the neighborhood of  Capo Town long before tho telegraph  brought tho news to tho llritish authorities nt that place. The means  by which thu Intelligence had beon  transmitted with such anin/.ing rapidity over no great a distance no white  man was ablo to discover. Nor  would the natives themselves vouchsafe the least explanation of tho  mystery. Yet it Is certain that,  throughout thc war, the vicissitudes  of the conflict wero regularly known,  with startling swiftness, to powerful  African tribes whoso black diplomatists woro vitally concerned with tho  issue of tlio struggle.  'T'hat somo such mysterious method  of incredibly quick communication  exists among the black peoples is no  now discovery. Gordon's death and  lho iall of Khartoum wore known  in  llio bazaars   of  Cairo,  800 MILES AWAY,  on tlio very day that thoy occurred.  But tho black man, though willing,  at times, and for his own convenience, to part with his news from  afar, obstinately refuses to the whito  man the means by which it has boon  .obtained.  In tho same way thn black tracker ,  of Australia, that perfect human  bloodhound, maintains thc secrecy of  the real means by which he is enabled to track down tho escaped prisoner or tho new chum lost in tho  bush. Skilled as he mny bo in the  interpretation of signs and traces invisible or insignificant to his whito  employers, there is something more  behind his powers than exceptionally  brilliant scouting���������something that  scorns to bo related to tho news-  trnnsniilling methods of thc African  native. But what that something is_  ho conceals, with obstinate cunning .  beneath tho affectation of profound  stupidity.  A similar obstinacy on tho part of  (lie, blnck man���������supplemented,  in Lliis    '.  ense,  by a strango terror���������stands betweon    tho      whilo     student   of   such  matters and tho obscure nnd reputedly  ghastly ceremonies   of  voodoo.       ^ ^  Voodoo  i.s  a system  of  West,  Afri-    N  can    magic    and     serpent      worship,  which,  transplanted  by slaves to the- '  West Indies,  still  lingers in thc    rs--  land  of llayti,  the Black Bcpublic.  Besides a weird and abominable  ritual, voodoo is believed to includo  tho twin horrors of cannibalism and  human sacrifice. Tl has at onco a .'  wild terror and fascination for the  barbaric element in tho black man,  and occasionally thero aro reports  of somo dark outburst of voodooisin.  in colored centers whoso half-civilization is more apparent than real. But '  what  voodoo  actually  i.s  NO  BLACK MAN  WTLL TELL.

Tho knowledge of these secret drugs  (to whose startling effects is no  doubt duo the traditional influence of  the medicino man over African  peoples) can never be gained by a  whito man; bribery and persuasion ^  arc alike powerless to procure for  him tho slightest assistance, in l.ho  discovery or identification of theso  potent plants.  ������������������Being white, ho can not become in-,  iliat cd into tho order of medicine  men, the charmed circle .which for  centuries has ruled savage Africa  through tho powor conferred by its ,  jealously guurded command of tho  drugs  in  question.  ���������Thu-head-hunting-dyak-of���������Borneo;   who,    by     process     peculiar to tho  black  races,  reduces  the head  of his  slain  enemy. .to ��������� the  size  of   a  small  orange,  without spoiling its contour      '  or     rocogniznbility,     will  sometimes  sell  to a while man a specimen    of  his grisly  skill.

"Well, what's going lo bo done?"  "Oli!     the  child     must    stay,     of  course,"   answered  Sir   Uupert.  "Then that sullies It," answered  the woman, taking olT her hat.

And  with tliis linni thrust sho departed  with the child.  "Glynno, old friend, I cnJ.not express what I reel for you in this unhappy hour.

And thus tho woman, whom Sir  Rupert had vowed that hc. would  never receive, wns comfortably installed at Glynne Hall, and it took  her a very few hours to let everybody know tlrnt sho did not intend  that h'er position sliould be a subordinate one.  "ft's time I lia'd somo compensation after the life I'vo had during  the last two years. I'm sick and  tired of looking, after that child, so  you'd better got a couple of nurses  to look after him.

Thi.s was ono of many little speeches that served to set Sir Rupert's  tc'etlv on edge, but ho bore it all patiently, and acquiesced in all her  wishes. Tho litllo heir soon mado  himself a prime favorite with all the  household, and Sir Rupert and John  Brown did their best to spoil him.  And as th'o days passed, Sirs. Harry, ns sho was called, became more  assertive and made herself an ore obnoxious. Her innate vulgarity protruded itself in a variety of ways;  ancl, now that lier position was assured, sho took no pains to vaneor  her plehian. tastes, or subdue the  paroxysms of anger to which slio was  subject.  "One thing I can't understand,  Glynno," said".lolin Brown. "The little kiddy is constantly crying for  mamma, and yet. when the mother  comes near him he seems terrified of  hcr."  '���������Yes,  I've noticed that myself.

Rut what nro th'ey worth?  remarks upon the wine. To Sir  Rupert it was a meal of torture,  and Ifo heaved a sigh of relief when  it camo to nn end.  "Jolin," ha remarked, when Mrs.  Harry and hot* cousin had paired off  to the garden, "I cannot stand much  more of this, lt is bad enough with  tho woman, but when sho brings Hint  little billiard-marker here it exceeds  the limit. lt it were not for littlo  Rupert "  "Oh! you can't part with' the Hope  of Glynne; but r.s the mother does  not koiii particularly contented here,  why not pay lier so much a year to  livo somewhere else?"  "It Is n good idea, Brown; I will  try it. I think 1 will go up and  have, a look, at llio youngster now."  "All right; I'll take a stroll round  for a bit."    '  Joli'X Brown lit a fresli cigar and  took his wny into tho grounds, and  after a few minutes of aimless  wandering lie sat down to think  about, his lost daughter.'.- At his back  was a tall yew hedge, ami as Iio  'pondered deep in thought tho sound  of voices broke upon Ids ears.  "Whon can you manage it?" asked  the voice of Hicks.  "Saturday, I think," camo thc- answer.   ���������  "Dangerous to  delay later."  "Ch.  Sir SUIYiu-ss  will  be glad  to  get  rid of mc.

Tho voices died away, leaving  Jolin Brown to ruminate upon tho  meaning of the conversation, nnd a  fow minutes he repented what he had  overheard to  Sir Rupert.  "It appears to ine. th'at, if you  made lier your o!"er a few hundred a  year now, slie would accept it," said  Brown.  "I will try hor to-n-.orrow morning," said Sir Rupert, nnd accordingly, after breakfast, he broached  the subject to Mrs.  Harry,  'Vou havo often remarked- tliat  Glynno i.s too quiet for you, and as  I cannot, so soon after my Ecn's  death*, .'ill if, wilh guests for your  entertainment, it has occurred to  mo tlint possibly you may fall in  with a -suggestion; nnd that i.s. that  you leave the child to bo brought up  by mc and I pay you a cot-lain sum  annually, sufliciont to allow you lo  livo in comfort in a moro congenial  atmosphere of your  own choosing."  "Well, it is funny, but I was going  to propose th'e same thing to you.  Glynno is a dull hole, and us two  don't seem to hit it. How mucli! do  you  proposo  to  give  mo?"  "I was thinking of three hundred  a year."  "No good. Look here, my cousin  Ridley is buying a business, and lias  offered ~mc a half.share for two thousand. Make your .payment a lump  sum for that figure, and I'll close  tlie deal."  "And you will leave me tlie child?"  "Absolutely. I'm not gone on  children."  "I will send for my lawyer and  havo an agreement drawn up."  "And when can I have tho money?  Ridley says that delays are dangerous."  "To-day is Friday; tho (matter can  be completed to-morrow morning."  "Then I can catch tho twelve train  to London, for I am sick of this  place and everybody in it."  "And if you will be good enough"  to- nsk your cousin to accompany  you I shall have double cause to  congratulate  myself."  Tho lawyer arrived during the afternoon and received Sir Kupcrl's instructions about draVing up tho  agreement,- which' ho promised to  have ready by eleven o'clock on tho  following  morning.  True to his promise lho deed was  duly executed, John Brown and Ridley Hicks appending their signatures  as witnesses, and Sir Rupert, with a  sigh of relief, handed to Mrs. Harry  a cheque on his London bankers for  ������2,000.

When wo saw your advertisement,  dad, wo were in pretty low water,  and had only sufficient money to  travel steerage.

"They're only tlie paste ones, thank  goodness."  "But your cheque for two thousand  pounds."  "By George!

Most housewives imagine Hint linen  is the. ideal material for sheets, but  several household authorities consider it inferior to a good quality of  cotton for tliis purposo. Linen is  cold and "slippery." It is not more  .appropriate for shoots tlinni it is for  body wear, owing to its non-nbsorlj-  cnt quality. Tho wrinkles in linen-  shoots arc harder to tsmoolh out than  those in cotton, and, in addition,  keep a bod from looking fresh. Linon.  however, is at its best when usod  for tablecloths nnd napery. For all-  such purposes it is the ideal material.

Just ut  present, when the Bear bf.oins !ik,j  losing and Japan is nt tlm gates of  a new era of prosperity, ihe Japanese .Morgan is rousing himself io his  fullest  activities.  His real name is Baron Shibusnwa,  and il is a great distinction for him  that ho i.s the first business man  who has over heen ennobled in Japan  wliero the chief honors nro monopolized by naval and military persons.  But the Baron says that when Japan  has finished the big wnr which establishes her securely as a Great Power  in the Far Kast, and when she ihen  gives her attention to tho arts of  peace, the commercial man will inevitably come uppermost, and will  count for more in Japan than ho  has  over  done hefore.  Baron Shibusawa, a millionaire  several times over and the mnn who  practically controls industrial Japan,  is now sixty-livo years of ago. He is  a  self-mado man,  and  i.s  THE  SON  OP A FAHMEB.  Hc  is     connected     with   nbout     1-10  companies,   and  is  the  chairman     oi  directors of between thirty and forty  of the biggest concerns in Japan.  lie it was, indeed, who introduced  tho company system into tho Land  of tho Rising Sun, and ho organized the first company nnd was tlio  first of its-directors. As showing  tho Baron's enterprise and tho way  in which he keeps himself abreast of  tho times, it*.may be said that lie  floated n great Japanese shipping  trust long before the Atlantic combine, which was thought to bc tho  first thing of its kind, was dreamt  oi". 'T'his is now known as tho Japanese Mail Steamship Company, and,  liaving seventy steamers, is lho fifth  largest steamship company in tho  world.  It is the Baron's ambition that,  with this fleet ns a basis, he may  one day in the near future command  lho trade in the Pacific. He thinks  that in time. Japan will be ono of  tho greatest countries in tlie world,  and declare, that the Orient rightly  belongs to her for commercial purposes.  Allliou gh he rcaliv.es that Japan  could not get ovor her initial difficulties without going in very strongly for militarism, he bates to think  of a nation giving itself up entirely  lo it, and made a very blunt display of his .feelings in this matter  on one occasion when lie met President Roosevelt. The President, desiring to be unable, congratulated  the Baron on tho naval ond military-  progress of his countrymen, whereupon the Baron quite frankly expressed  HIS   REGRET   AST)   SURPRISE  that  tho  first  American   had  nothing  bolter to say to him than that.  "1 am afraid," ho remarked, "that  too much militarism will, if persisted in, sap tho vory life of a nation."  Tiie Baron looks thc commercial  magnate as much as it is possibly  for a Japanese to look one. Hc is  of medium height for hi.s country,  and i.s sturdily built, with a -strong  face and chin. His small eyes are  intensely quick ar.d keen. There is  nothing of whal is vulgarly called  "side" about him. His manner i.s  easy nnd pleasant, he talks without  reserve and treats all men as equals,  and is given a good name for honesty  and kindness by rich and poor alike.

Attention  is called to an interview  in  another  column   in .which Mr. H.  Kipp. of   Chilliwack,  one   of   British  Columbia's most expert fruit growers,  expresses the opinion  that the possibilities of Revelstoke as a fruit growing centre are excellent.     Practically  all  the  fruit consumed in Kevelstoke  is imported,  and in many cases consumers have  to pay more iu express  charges than what tlie fruit is worth.  "With   favorable   climatic   conditions  and a   good   market   it   is surprising  that more attention has not been paid  locally   to   the   cultivation   of   fruit.  There  is a  splendid opening here for  such   an   industry   -which   would not  only be profitable  to those engaged in  it but of immense  benefit to the community'' as   well,   and    before   many  years instead of the local merchants  liaving to import fruit for home consumption, the  fruit growers of Kevelstoke would be shipping theii' products  to less fortunate communities.    It is  pleasing to  note however that one-or  two of our local gardeners  have already made   experiments   in   lliis direction  with  good results and others  are following suit.      It is hoped   that  the   suggestion   thrown   out   by Mr.  Kipp   regarding   the   formation of n  3-"ruit Growers Association   in Revel-  ("!overiiiiient bo liad, what must they  think of the Opposition? and with  such food i'or their reflection, Messrs.  "M.-icdonuld and Oliver, for instance,  may be dismissed from further consideration.���������Colonist.  There is a protty well authenticated  rumor afloat to the effect that the  Grand Trunk Pacific has obtained, or  is negotiating for, running rights over  the C.

If the arrangement is made construction will begin  at tliis city instcad of at the coast.���������  Edmonton Bulletin.  A Revelstoke Inventor,  Mr.  Rowland  Di-iltnln, Pattont At  tiirney, of   Vancouver, sends   the following account of a patent which hns  been   granted   to a llritish Columbia  inventor:  A United States patent was recently  issued to .Iny E. Lehman, machinist,  t of Kevelstoke, on an improved guago  for measuring the wear of railway  tires. Dillieulty liasbeen experienced  heretofore in constructing a guago for  this purpose thnt, will measure the  wear uf the lire from a delinite position or base, wliieli is itself not susceptible lo wear.  Tlie gunge in question, which is of n  simple and portable nature, consists of  n base poition designed to be set  against tlie outer face of tho tire rim,  which member has a slidab'.e pointer  wliich may be set to the inner diameter of the tire to determine its  thickness.  Projecting at right angles from the  end of this base portion and slidably  adjustable on it is an arm the end of  wliich may bc set against the fillet of  the llange, and having n small depth  guage movable along it across the  width of the tire, by which the  amount of wear at any desired part  may be determined.  The various slidable parts of the  guage are graduated for the determination of the posilion and tlle amount  of wear, and tho whole forms a convenient and serviceable device whicli  should bo much appreciated by liail-  way Master Mechanics or others who  require to determine the wear of  wheel tires.

From   a   political point of  view the  Government and the Province is to bo  congratulated.     B.v  lhe  turning of a  "Liberal  into  a Conservative constituency  the   Government   has been materially strengthened. That is a factor  of   great   importance   to  law-making  and  administration.     Itisafaclth.it  can  be   honestly   appreciated by Liberals as  well as Conservatives, as one  in the best   interests of   the province.  From the point of   view of   the great  majority it is better to have a government,  of whatever shade of politics,  strong than  to have one nunierically  too   -weak   to   give full  effect   to its  policy.     XX'e   shall  not say anything  concerning the defeat which has been  administered to the Opposition.   That  a Liberal vote of three to one, or more  accurately speaking, of 320 to 102, has  lieen turned in to*-a large Conservative  majority is sufficiently significant in  itself not to require comment.    If the  Government is unworthy of confidence,  as   its   opponents   claim  it to be, the  veidict in  Alberni  does not reflect a  high estimate of   the Opposition.    In  the opinion  of   the electorate, if the  To Explore G. T. P. Route  AV. Fleet Robertson, provincial  mineralogist, hits stalled out upon an  important undertaking, lie has been  instructed by the Provincial Government to make an exhaustive report on  the region to be traversed by the  Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, with  especial reference to the Bulkley  vnllcy. He will leave the C.P.R. at  Ashcroft for the 300 mile stage ride  upcouiitry. His first base will be at  Barkerville, where the finishing  touches will be added to the expedition. Mr. Robertson will have a large  puck train and the services of half a  dozen men, including guides. Several  canoes will bo taken along as the descent of many rapid rivers will have  io be accomplished after passing the  summit on the divide between the  interior plateau and the coast. In  order to expedite his progress men  have been engaged in the Cariboo to  cut trails through the wilderness  north of Barkerville. Most of the  region to be traversed is a veritable  terra incognita respecting which the  scantiest information is available.  .Mr. Robertson hopes to supply the  flelieieheyT ���������^=���������     ���������=^^==.  Ife will report on the mineral resources along the route, and inquire  into the agricultural possibilities.  Scattered through Oinitieca are many  prospectors, and unverified stories  aliout fa'nuously rich strikes of ore  have reached the outside world. On  liis return Mr. Robertson expects to  be in a position to announce tlie character df the mineralization over a  wide teriitoi v.  Of  Lake Gleanings.  (From Our Own Correspondent)  Tlie farmers in the vicinity  Williamson's lake are busy baying,  the crop this year is heavier than  former years, and mowing machines,  rakes, and otiier implements are  on the move on all sides gathering up  the hay.  The lake is attracting a large number of .bathers, these warm days.  With a little money expended it  could be made a pleasure resort equal  to any in the province. The lake is  about throe-quarters of a mile in  length and half ,-i mile across, and ,has  a fringe of shade trees on all sides.  Farmers are complaining about the  roads that lead from their ranches into  town being in bad condition ii? places,  especially on tlie town's side of the  Iliecillewaet bridge there are several  bad holes.  The potato  crop  in   this  district  is  exceptionally good this season.  ���������i        McLean's Challenge  Sew "Westmi.vstkk. July 20.���������A.

Leslie's Monthly Magazine for July gives the following interesting facts about surgery of the  stomach:  Modern surgery's great achievements have been in the abdominal  region, for a generation ago fear of  blood poisoning kept the surgeon out  of this territory. Here disease intrenched itself and bid the surgeon  defiance. But now the surgeon intrepidly enters disease's former stiong-  hnld, mills it, and in so doing performs live-saving feats with thc organ  that seem absolute miracles to the on-  looking world. Take the stomach. If  it is too large, the surgeon enfolds a  portion of the wall and sutures the  edges, and if necessary, cuts a new  opening for the head of the small intestine and sutures (stitches) it into  place; if the esophagus is obstructed  so that food cannot be taken naturally  a tube is inserted through the abdominal wall into the stomach, and when  tho man is hungry he merely drops a  premas.ticated meal into the tube; or,  in case a cancerous area be so large as  to demand such a severe operation,  the surgeon may remove the entire  stomach and suture the esophagus to  the duodenum.v  Contrast tliis last operation with the  working principle of the severities,  that to enter the stomach is death,  and you see how far surgery has  traveled in a generation. This last  operation is, of course, rarely performed even now, but'there are today  a. fow stom.aehless . persons in the  world (one returned to work within  two months after '-*.. the operation),  attending to their regular duties, taking a special diet, and apparently just  as happy as though their stomachs  were not in jars on laboratory shelves.

According to Professor L.  L*Tln, Berlin, t,  ,ilstlugu!ihed Qcrm&n scientist,  th? ia!r ol  ���������ome copper workers Is almost certain to tun  'frees sooner or later. Tbe Pr������fesser has bees  ���������tudjlnjf the subject for the last  few yean  'and he tells the result of his lnvctlgitlou li  jthe current number of the Deutsche. Mei]l7  Inlsclie Woehenschrirt.  F "For nearly two hundred and 6fty years/  ���������fcesays, " scientists have known that the hah  ot rersons employed ln copper work* is apt to  jtecome green���������* curious fact and one which  It especially interesting from a biological point  'pt tlew. The general belief, howerer, that thi  liair becomes green after a few days' work In  jummer It erroneous. Workmen perspire free-  [ly during the summer and tbe dust from tb<  copper naturally clings to their skin and tendi  to glrc their hair a greenish hue.  This greet  towever, can be easily washed off,  |> "The true green does not appear In tbe hall  'of workmen until they bave been  come yean  ���������t the business, and neither bj washing noi  fcj th* use of chemicals can ther erer wholl]  rid themselves of it. I   have examined ovei  three hundred workmen and yet I found thai  ���������nly eight of them had any trace of green io  then* h&lr. 1 examined one man, a brass p0l-  liber, who had  been  twenty-seven years lb  the factory, and I found his hair of a-natura)  color* On the  other hana, I found   anothei  polisher, who'had a green beard. Even ani-  ��������� Bats' hair becomes  green under such condi  Hobs. This was clearly proven tome by thi  aitcolored hair   of a goat   which   used   to  frequent a certain copper factory, and which  ns������d to_drink daily, without, any. eyll result!  the water in which the _copper was washed;  p- "In the case of workmen the hair of tht  bead aad   beard changes color   more often  jthan that of the eyebrows, and, 'as a rule, th<  Jbeard change* first. On men with white ot  Sair hair the change  can be   noticed mon  ���������readily than on those  with dark hair.  Another peouliar fact Is  that after some  yean  |th* green may disappear from the hair, pro-,  (vided the workman Is no longer employed al  jtkl* trade. I   knew one old man  whose hair,  .which was-very green while he wa* working  [at copper, became snow white soon after b������  ^eased to work.

at the staircase upon whicli was
clustered a brilliant throng, and
Madge's  eyes  followed  his.
"My husband tells mo that you
have one of tho finest castles in
England,  Lord  Rochester,"   she said.
"Oh, it's not bad," he said. "But
somehow it hasn't the tone which
Monk Towers possesses, and I believe it's, "as damp as a well. I
haven't seen it for years. Jt is too
big for a bachelor, and T have always kept it until���well, until I
could take a companion there to

Madge smiled.
'���-Vou ought not to have much difficulty in finding one," she said lightly, aud sho looked round at the bevy
of  beautiful  women.
Lord 'Rochester sighed rather theatrically.
"Oh. I am always just too late."
hc said,  with a gallant little bow.
Madge smiled and blushed slightly.
Sho was beginning to understand
this kind  of  compliment.
"Some day, perhaps, I may in-
Suce you and Itoyco to pay me a
visit. I'll have o fire or two lit, so
that you need not be afraid." Then
the noise at the end of the hall attracted his attention, and he lookod
over  his   shoulder.
"What is the matter there. I wonder?"  he said;  "something broken?"
Madge looked in the same direction, and saw the small crowd of
servants moving round some object.
"Perhaps it is," she said carelessly. "Royce is going to see," she
added, as Roycc's stalwart figure
made its way down the ball-room toward thc door.
'i'he countess passed at the moment. .   -
"Is thero anything the matter,
madam?" asked Madge.
hnve obeyed, but at the same moment a voice, harsh and thick, exclaimed:
"Madge! Ts that Madge? Here! let
her come, d'ye bear, and soe fair
play! Shc ain't tho one to turn her
back on an' old friend. She won't
sco an old chum chivied by a parcel

Madge uttered a faint cry and
shrank  bnck,   her- hand  on  her heart.
It was Jake's voice.
She hesitated a moment-���a moment only���thon shc pressed forward

against the wall, panting, but surveying tho indignant circle round
him with a defiant, smile, for he
grasped the edge of the frame containing a pricoless Titian, which any
application of forco would inevitably bring to the ground. He knew
they dared not drag him for fear of
the picture, nnd he-was. enjoying the
sensation wliich is possessed by every
man who has his fellows at a palpable  disadvantage.
Beside him stood Koyce, stern and
white; around him the circle of footmen, eyeing him indignantly and the
costly picture apprehensively, by
Madge stepped in front of him nnd
gazed at him as if he were a ghost.

A voico sounded sternly in her car.
It  was Lord Rochester's.

Jake peered in the direction of the
"Jib? What?" ho exclaimed huskily. "Who's that? Knock mc down,
eh? What for? Wh.at havo I done, I
should  like  to  know?"
The footmen gathered in closer, but
he clung to the picture frame, and
tliey dared not attempt fo drag him
away. The crowd at Madge's back
grow denser. In twos and threes at
lirst, presently by the dozen, tho
guests came down the hall. The
music ceased; the dancers, asking
each other what had happened, hurried to  the centre of attraction.
Never, even in his strolling days,
hnd Mr. Jackson Hooper played to
a larger, or certainly to a more interested audience.
He looked round with a tipsy leer.
"I'm disturbing tho ball!" he said
with a chuckle. "Very sorry! Not

to .Royce, and then at Jake with a
barely-concealed smile of triumph.
He      took in      lhc      incident      to
tiio smallest detail, and absolutely
revelled in it. Never since the mad
world had begun to wag had the
gods given to a man a sweeter,"fuller revenge than awaited him here.
"Who is this fellow?" he demanded
in accents of feigned indignation.

replied; tlien she. too, saw that
something was wrong. "I do not

"I'will go and see," said Rochester; and he moved away. The buzz
of voices and laughter was very loud
at tiie moment; but suddenly a voice
broke ihrought the wave of sound
and reached Madge.
"What���who was that?" she exclaimed.
The countess had not heard the
voice and turned her calm, impassive   eyc-3   upon   her.
"What was that?" sli3 asked.

remarked her ladyship indifferently.
"I. think they were going to bring
in one or two more labb-s; there are
still a great mnny persons to come
to supper."-
"It was not that." said Madge,
under her breath, a vague dread hovering  over  her.    "I   thought  1   heard
to try it, and have never seen any
ililTerunco in tho results. I have
thinned my apples for tliree years
und am pleased with the results. Wo
thin most of the varieties, but somo
need it worse than others. Wo commence on tho early varieties about
Juno 1, und quit on the lato ones
in August. When the fruit is small
it is difiicult to get enough removed.
When it gets larger it i.s easier to
determine when it is properly thin-
nod. On late apples 'most of tho
thinning should be done in Juno and
July, and some more of tho surplus
can bo taken olT in August, when it
can readily bo seen if the trees aro
yCt too full. We try to thin all
bunches of fruit so as to leave just
one specimen in a place, uifl'ess the
bunches are far apart, when it may
be best sometimes to leave two in a
bunch, but tho center one should bc
taken out, so that tho other two
will not touch each other, if it is
possible to get (hem that way.
Worms will often spoil both oi them,
if they hang together all summer.
Hand picking is the only way to
thin, and both liands must be usod
to keep from breaking tho twigs oif.
All scabby, stung or wormy specimens should be. removed first, and
then thin out tho small ones. What
seems to bo a fair sotting of apples
after being thi lined in June will often
show up twice as many in September
as  there sliould bo
I have had intelligent growers tell
me that I was having twice as many
picked off ns tliere should have boon
si-hen the fruit bociimo ripe.. Tho
trees looked twice ns full as they
should havo beon. The tender-hearted grower would better give directions to disinterested laborers about
tho thinning and go off and leave
him to do the work. The ground
will look as if tho trees had boon
stripped, but the results will be
most satisfactory. Tlie cost of
thinning is very small. It need not
usually be over 5 cents per barrel
for tho good fruit when it is picked.
Tho yield will be about as much as
when no thinning is done and the
size and quality will more than pay
for   the   cost.
It costs money to pick apples when
they are ripe. If a fourth or half
of them aro picked in the summer
when help is not so scarce, there,
would not bo quite so much of a
demand for pickers, and .the work
would not need to be rushed so much
to get tho picking dono in time. Nico
largo apples can bo picked faster by
t.he barrel, or as fast hy the number,
as smaller ones, and when about
all the culls have been thinned out
the sorting and packing can be done
for a small part of the cost of tho
same when all kinds of the fruit
must be handled and disposed of
from unthinned trees; Trees that
have beon thinned every year, that
have been mulched so, ns not to suffer in time of drouth, and have fairly fertile soil to supply the needs of
tho tree, have fair crops of apples
every year. When they used to boar
too full and suffer from drouth they
bore once in two years. I expect to
continue to thin whether the trees

The groat, problem for the farmer
in tho future is not how to produce
larger crops but how to produce
crops cheaper. While there are immense areas of fertile land still unproductive and vast areas of arid
land that need only irrigation to
bring into profitable cultivation, the
successful farmer of the future will
bo tho one who lessens tho cost of
production, rather than the 0110 who
extends   his   operations.
The old theory that one can food
fat into milk, or that somo particular ration will mako milk richer in
fat than another, has been disapproved hundreds of times within .tlio
last fifteen years, and yet a largo
majority of farmers to-day bolievo
ns firmly as ever that richness in
milk depends upon the kind of feed.
Governed by this theory, farmers
aro losing thousands, yea hundreds
of thousands of dollars yearly by
feeding- a ration not calculated to
give best returns in dairy products.
This is not only true of dairymen,
but is true, as a rule, of farmers
who depend largely or altogether on
tho income from their cows.

SSSZZZZZ*1 SA  RE__TT_fATIC  PAINS.  Driven Out  of the System by   Dr.  Williams'   Pink  Pills.  "My lifo was absolutely made  miserable by rheumatism, says Mr.  Geo. F. Hilpert, of West River, Sheet  Harbor, N.S. "I am employed every  spring as a river driver, and in consequence am exposed to all sorts of  weather and exposure in tho cold water. A fow years ago while engaged  at my work I wns seized with thc  most acute pains in my back and  joints, I became almost a cripple  and could scarcely move about. I  had medical aid, but it did not help  me. Then I begun taking a remedy  alleged to be a euro for rheumatism,  and I used ten dollars worth, but  derived absolutely no benefit. The  constant suffering I was in began to  tell on my hitherto strong constitution and 1 became so badly run down  that I despaired of ever being in  good health again. Then n friend  called my attention to Dr. Williams'  Pink I'ills, and although somewhat  skeptical I decided to try them. I  had ouly used a few boxes when I  began to feel belter, and after I had  used sastlething over a dozen boxes I  was again in good health. Every  twinge of the trouble had left1 mo,  and although I habo been subject to  much exposures sinco, I have not  &ad a twinge of tho old pain. I tun  honestly say that Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills cured me after otiier expensive  treatment had failed."  \ Rheumatism was rooted in Mr.  Hilpert's blood. The cold, and the  wet and the exposure only started  the pain going. Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills cured because they drove the  poisonous uric acid out of the blood  and illlcd the veins with that now,  rich blood that no disease can resist. These pills actually make now  blood, and that is why they cure  common ailments liko rheumatism,  sciatica, lumbago, anaemia, indigestion, headaches and backaches, kidney- and liver  troubles,  and   nervous  V ?

Cerebrospinal meningitis, or spotted fp.vor, a9 it is popularly called,  is duo to the presence of a germ in  the membranous covering of the  brain and spinal cord. It attacks  children most frequently, yet adults,  even the aged, aro not safe from its  onslaught.  It may begin abruptly or gradually.  When it is gradual thu first symptom  is usually intense headache,���������this  persists Willi few remissions throughout the course of thn disease,���������followed by a chill, or convulsions in very  young children, fever, and vomiting,  which is usually wliat is called "projectile vomiting," that is, tho stomach contents aro ejected with great  force, and not merely regurgitated.  Stillness of the muscles of tlle neck  and back soon .appears, and any  movement of theso parts becomes distressingly painful. The head is  drawn back by the muscular contraction, and sometimes tho entire spine  is curved backward so that the body  and head form nn arc of a circle. The  pupils contract slowly or not at all  wlion turned to Uio light, a squint is  sometimes present, and light causes  great distress, ns shown by tho closing of the, eyes and contraction of  the brow of the nearly unconsciousi  patient. The sufferer, shrinks also  from noises, and ��������� tho least touch  causes pain.  Delirium or unconsciousness occurs  almost always early in the disease.  Although it is called spotted fever,  the eruption occurs only occasionally  and in  the  severer cases.  '  In what is called tho fulminate  forni the sufferer is attacked with the  troubles such ns neuralgia, St. Vitus  suddenness of a paralytic stroke, and  dance and paralysis. And it is this  same way that they cure tho irregularities and secret troubles of women  and growing girls. No other medicino can do this, and ailing peoplo  will savo money and speedily get  good health by taking Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills at once. But you must  get tho genuine with tho full name.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Palo  People, on tlle wrapper around each  box. Sold by all medicine dealers  or sent by mail at 50 cents a box  or six boxes for $2.50, by writing  the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  P.rockville,   Ont.  TO STRENGTHEN THE EYES.  .Tho eyes will bo greatly strengthon-  . ed by pulling tlie face down into a  glass or eye-cup of water tlie first  thing in tlio morning and opening  tliem under water. This is somewhat  difficult to do at first, but if the  water for two or three days bo topid  and gradually bo mado colder by imperceptible degrees until it is no  shock te put tho faco into quite cold  water, it will soon become easy, and  is very invigorating and refreshing.  Tlio oyos should bo'wiped after this  by passing a' soft towel very gently  from the outer angle inward toward  the nose.   4   WHAT  SALT WILL DO.  Salt may bo made useful in many  directions besides table use. First,  as a tooth powder, it will keep the  gums hard and the tooth beautifully  white. Also, if you have had a*  tooth oxtrnctoifrund tho bleeding does  not slop, rinsing tho mouth with salt  and water will prove a quick remedy.  Mixed with hot water it makes a  good gargle for a sore throat, and  if a lillle is put with' lemon juice,  s'-.".jn.s on fingers from ink, peeling  polntoes, etc., will bo easily re-  t<;:r-od Wlien tea-cups are discolor-  c|2 rub a iittlo salt on the stains bo-  fjre washing tliem, and ths blemish  quickly  disappears.   .���������+   A  MOTHER'S   PRAISE.  In every part of Canada you will  ���������find mothers who speak jn tlie highest praise of Uaby's Own Tablets.  Among Ihpse is Mrs. Jas. II. Konkle,  Rcamsvillc, Ontario, who says:���������"I  -Iiu vo-used���������Daby's"-Own-Tablets - for-  o\er three years and I would not bo  without them. They'.h'ave dono moro  for my children tlinn any medicine I  liavo ever used.. My .little girl, now  four years . old was-always troubled  with indigestion and constipation,  nml although other medicines helped  her temporarily, Uaby's Own Tablets  were the thing needed to cure lici*.

If tlio disease does not kill, it often  leaves its victim a wreck���������blind or  deaf, paralyzed or idiotic, or a constant sufferer from intolerable headache.  Tho treatment consists in absolute  rest in a quiet, dark room, a restricted diet and laxatives. Warm  bath's of long duration have been  found of use. Recently somo physicians havo reported apparent cures  by the injection of diphtheria antitoxin.  HEALTHY   HAIR.  Dandruff arls*cs from an unhealthy  condition of the scalp. Tho best  treatment is by friction. Use a good  still bristle brush niglit and morning.  There, is a lotion, composed of two  drams of borax dissolved in one pint  of rosemary wator, which is said .to  bo beneficial, applied three tiiiucs each  week and thoroughly rubbed into tho  scalp. Friction or massage is usually recommended ns the best treatment. Wash the head onco every  two weeks, and when doing so massage tlio scalp vigorously with the  linger tips, employing a rotary motion. Another moans of stimulating  thc healthy aclion of tlio scalp is to  separate tho hair when shampooing,  and scrub thc scalp'thoroughly with  a finger-brush. Tliis, wilh" tlio massage by tho fingers, will effectually  prevent tho condition termed scalp-  bound, and tend to eradicate dandruff. This treatment should bo continued. If llio hnir does not grow,  possibly white vaseline rubbed in. at  tho roots of th'o hair with the fingertips will liavo' a good effect.  SLEEP   AS  A  DEATJTY  AID.  No girl who does not sleep woll can  hope to preserve lier good looks. Six  hours' sleep is necessary for everyone, but is not sufliciont to moot the  jihysical needs' of all, some requiring  eight hours, and others oven, longer.  When possible, at least ono hour's  sleep should bo obtained beforo imid-  iiiglit, ns this is worth' all Uie hours  tlint succeed it. O.ultivalc a habit  of sleeping on tho sido.

All that is needed is flower of sulphur nnd a quill, and with these, it  is said, one celebrated physician  cured every patient without exception, lie put a teaspoonful of flower  of sulphur into a wineglass of water,  aTrd~"stirrciI~it_wilh��������� liis "fiiigcr-instead'  of a spoon, tliu sulphur not readily  amalgamating with water. When  the sulphur was well mixed, tlie physician gave it ns a gargle, ami in  ten -.minutes th'o patient was out of  danger. Sulphur kills every species  of fungus in a man, boast, or plant  in a few minutes. Instead of spitting out tlio garglo, tho swallowing  of it i.s recommended. In extreme  cases.in which' the above specialist  had. been culled in tho nick of time,  when'tho fungus wns too nearly closing to allow tlio gargling, lie blew  tliu. sulphur through a quill Into the  throat" and, after th'o fungus had  shrunk to allow ol it, gavo Uio  gargle.  FRUIT  AT UREAKFAST-TIME.  It is a mistaken idea that no fruit  should bo eaten at breakfast; indeed,  it would bo far better if people would  eat less bacon at breakfast nnd more,  fruit. Tho apple is ono of the best |  fruits. Ilukod or-slowed apples will j  generally agree with the most delicate digestion, and nro an excellent  medicine in many cases of indisposition. Green or half-ripe apples  stowed nnd sweetened arc pleasant to  the taste, cooling, and nourishing.  Raw apples nre better tlian liver  pills. Oranges aro vcry acceptable to  most people; but the orango juice  alono should bo taken., and the pulp  bo rejected. Lemonade is the best  beverage in hob weather and duripg  fevers, and whon thickened with  sugar is better than syrup of squills  and other medicine In many cases of  cough. Tomatoes are very beneficial  but the skins should not bo cnten.   4.   Mary���������"Do you think it would ha  conceited for mo to toll my friends  tliat 1 'inadu this dress myself?"  Edith���������"Not conceited, my dear���������  superfluous."  LADIES AS WILL-MAKERS  REMXKTISCEiySES  OF A FAMILY  SOLICITOR.  Eccentric Lady Clients Who   Made  Many Changes in Their  Wills.  It is a curious fact, said a family  solicitor of forty years' standing,  that women enjoy fow things more  than making a will���������I don't mean all  womon, of course, but the sex taking  it as a whole. To the average man  the making of his last testament is  a formidable and mournful thing, to  be put oil as long as possible or to  bo got over quickly once for all; but  whon tho average woman's fancy  lightly turns to will-making, sho  not only enjoys it, but is as likely as  not to make a hobby of it.  Some of then*, draw thoir own  wills, wilh disastrous consequences  often, as in tho case of' a rich lady  who died a few weeks ago who had,  with infinite, detail, disposed of every  item of her 'estate on four foolscap  pages,  but had quite overlooked   the  j necessity of having witnesses to   her  signature,   Dut  I  will .say -this     for  , tho sex:  thoy  arc as a rule wiser in  j their generation���������or shall wo say loss  conceited?���������thnn      men,   and  usually  ! put their    testamentary fate in    the  j hands of a solicitor.  But, oh, dear! how somo of them  do worry the poor man! I have a  client, an estimable lady, who begins  each year with a new testament, and  adds on an average a  CODTCIL FOR EACH MONTH.  One prized article of jewellery she  has already be queathed to quito a  dozen relatives and friends; but who  will get it ultimately even sho could  not  say.  Only yesterday she callod hero. "Oh  Mr. B-���������," she began, "I want to  mako another small change in my  will. You remember I left my pearl  neckless to Miss ������������������. Would you  believe it,' though I did think she  was ono of tho truest oi my friends,  I find sho's a regular female Judas,  and has been saying all kinds of  spiteful things about me. I couldn't  rest in' my grave if I thought she  had my treasured necklace. So  please strike her name out and put  in Miss Dash." And so the gnmo  goes on, until to-day, I assure you,  thore is scarcely a single one of her  possessions, down to a silver buttonhook, that will go to ils first destination.  Another lady who had tried hcr  ���������'prentice hand at will-niaking had  tho good sense a short timo ago to  submit it to mo for approval���������and it  was lucky she did. Of thc .attesting  witnesses ono was a legatee nnd the  other was tho wife of ono���������both, of  courso, had thus forfeited their legacies; several words antl even an en-  tiro clause had been struck  out  WITHOUT BEING INITIALLED  ono large legacy had boon left to a  niece on condition that shc never  married, ' a stipulation which, of  course, is quite illegal; and an important part of her estate had been  forgotten altogether. And yot how-  proud she wns of that will until I  ruthlessly shattered hor  delusion!  Another lady client of mine���������dead  somo time, poor woman���������furnished an  excellent illustration of the changes  of mind her sex claims as its privilege. After her first husband's death  she provided in hcr will that sho  should bo buried with him iii the  same grave; when her second hus  band followed suit she directed that  her bones were to lie with his; and  ultimately, by her own testamentary  wish, sho was buried with her third  husband.  Thoro arc a few women who look  on a will as a safe nicdi.mii for recording their opinions of friends and  relatives. One will I made for an  eccentric lady client, some years ago  was a perfect goin in ils way. Among  the legacies woro those: 'JJFo .Miss-  my silver hand-mirror, that she may  be the better ablo to indulge her  passion   for     admiring herself";  "To  my  nephew,  Thomas  ,  one of my  Bibles, in tho hopo that, when ho is  at last tired of reading trashy  novels, ho will devote a littlo time  to reading it."  ENGLISH WOJTEN TALLEST.  "After- taking-measurements���������of the  height of women in France, England  and America, a doctor announces  that tho English woman is tho tallest  and tho American comes next. Tho  average height of the French woman  is 5ft. Iin. The American womun is  nearly two inches taller and tho  women of Great Britain half nn inch  tuller than tho latter. American  womon. however, weigh slightly more  thon either of the others, their nv-  cr^ge  weight  being  about   1171b.  COFFEE  A.S  A  DISINFECTANT.  The uso of coffee as a disinfectant  is generally known, but it is doubtful if the majority of people are  aware of its true value in this direction. It is ono of the. most powerful  and effective agents Known, as has  boen shown by repeated experiments.  Thc merest pinch of coffee is usually  sufficient to cleanse a sick room, oven  in aggravated cases. Th'o best way  to employ it is to freshly pound tho  coffee in a mortar, if no mill is at  hand, and sprinkle it on a red-hot  iron surface.

German sufferers from, hay fever  havo tried to help th'eir follows nnd  themselves by handing log-other in  order to promote investigation inlo  tho causes of their troubles nnd to  discover euros, if possiblo. As the hay  fover season is just approaching,  some account or the results of their  enquiries may bo welcome to Knglish  sufferers.  Experiments and experience have  fairly established lhe fact Uial h'ay  fever is duo to tlio "ollcn of grass,  rye,_etc.,_oftcn_iiitciisified ���������by��������� dust  and by sunshine.  The dungorous period is from lho  middle of May to tho end of July,  varying according to locality; tlio  actually dangerous time for nny given  place lasts  some five  or six weeks.  Except in unusually severe cases,  alleviation may Iio obtained by inhaling the fumes of stramonium,  with which a little saltpetre has beon  mixed, and sometimes by smoking  cigarettes mado of Indian hemp. I'ho  most scientific remedies yet known  for external treatment are thu antitoxins prepared from grass pollen.  Of those there are two on the market pollantin tind gramiirin.  I'ollantin is a sorum supplied in  the form of j owder, to- bo used as  snuff or as a liquid.to drop into tho  eyes and nose.  Graminin, which at present is .only  procurable as powder, is tlie cheaper  product, and is duo to; tho diiscovcry  of th'o assistant of Dr. Dunbar,.the  inventor of pollantin. Those remedies aro at present litllo known outside, but in Germany thoy aro used  with' real success fn 50 per cent, of  cases treated, and with' loss success  in others.  MEASURING  INGREDIENTS.  It is useful to know that sixty  drojis aro equivalent lo one teaspoonful, threo touspoonfuls equal to  ono tablespoonful. A gill is four  ' tablespoonfuls.  Ono cupful of liquid is equal to  ono half-pint. Two cupfuls of buttor  or sugar weigh one pound, and sixteen tablespoonfuls of liquid arc  equal to a cupful.
