Low Prices  HAVE STRUCK  A FINE LEAD  C B, HUME & CO,  Department  Store  ������������������__M_a_BiB_aH___a_M_  On the Silver Dollar���������-Compres-  or to be Installed ��������� Gold  Bricks from Eva and Oyster  ���������Other Fish Creek Items,  The shareholders of the Elwood Tin-  workers Gold Mining Co., have occasion to congratulate themselves; today  the lead on the Silver Dollar wns  tapped at the end of across-cut tunnel  2-11 feet in length. The lead is free-  gold quartz and is highly mineralized.  The width of the lead cannot be given  at this time as the banging wall has  not yet been encountered, but from  general appearance and calculations  made by foreulan F. Dubuis it is  figured the lead will be between 18 and  20 feet across. The depth on the" lend  attained by the crosscut is something  over 150 feet.  Owing to the fact that a lower tunnel site is not obtainable on the Silver  Dollar, a winze will be sunk on tl.������  lead, drifts run and stoping ground  opened up. As soon as conditions in  the mine will permit, the force of men  working there will be increased. The  mill site is approaching completion  and the saw mill is in daily operation.  A mine office and assay office are to  be erected shortly.  The Elwood Tinworkers Gold Mining Co. aud its management are to be  congratulated on the manner in which  operations have been conducted and  the stick-to-itiveness displayed. It is  this latter quality that forms a greater  part of the make-up of all successful  mining companies.  In the Silvar Dollar, the Elwood  people have one of the best properties  in this section and are developing it in  a judicious and sensible manner. A  compressor, whicli will not only facilitate development and'ore production  but will decrease cost bf same, is about  to be installed, andii complete milling  plant' has'be'en purchased and will be  erected as*'soon as development is*  sufficiently advanced to provide ore  for its continuous operation.  In' a few words, it'is plain that the  Elwood Tinworkers Gold Mining Co.,  is in the field to do mining on a legitimate and. business-like basis, and are  succeeding along those lines, and if  conscientious development and modern  methods will ensure success the Silver  Dollar mine and the Elwood Tinworkers Gold Mining Co., have indeed a  very promising future.  The usual monthly clean-up at the  Eva stamp mill took place on the first  of the month and a substantial goldbrick was obtained as a result, the  value of which is not obtainable.  The first clean up at the Oyster mill  since last November took place the  first of the month. Operations were  resumed about the middle of Juue,  consequently the mill was in commission IG clays last month. The goldbrick obtained from the mill run lias  exceeded expectations, being some-  whatof aTevelationlothe-new- management.  An employee of the Bowman Lumber Co.. in the sawmill at Comaplix,  named 'William Sheldon has been  missing since Friday and the supposition is that he has met death by  drowning. On the afternoon of the  day mentioned, Sheldon was sent lo  repair a boom, liotjietuiiiing for supper a search was made for him, and a  boat containing his hat and tools wns  found but he was nowhere to be seen.  The bottom of the lake where the boat  was moored has been dragged, but  with no success. Sheldon was steady,  sober, industrious, an expert boom'  min and a good fellow, und his associates are at a loss co account for his  mysterious disappearance. At the  place where the boat was moored the  water is about 10 feet deep, and at low  water is a large sandy flat. In a few  weeks, when the water recedes,, the  disappearance will be cleared up.  Mrs. Anderson of the Beatrice  Mines, Ltd., accompanied by Miss  Swanson and Mrs. Otiitn of Lisbon.  North Dakota, were up to the Beatrice  mine for a few days this week. The  ladies were very pleased with the  appearance of the mine, the trip being  a decidedly novel one for the two  latter ladies it being their first experience in a silvei-lead property. The  two ladies referred to weie greatly  taken up with the scenery in this  district and expressed a wish to return  at a future date for the purpose of becoming more conversant with the  many beauties of nature that exist  here.  Messrs. McKay, Strutt and Downing  are gettingon nicely with development |  woik on tho Old Homestead group  and expect to tap the lead in another  15 feet. Tho crosscut tunnel they are  driving to tap tlio No. 0 lead, which  consists of free-gold quart-, is now in  110 feet and the work is progressing  at the rate of two foet a day. One  hundied feet of depth on the lend will  bo gained by the present operations.  Assays from tho lead at surface have  returned excellent values, nnd it is  anticipated that the average value of  the ore in the lead, when tapped will,  be about $20 to the ton in gold.

SERIOUS LOSS  TOflEVELSirOKE  The Burning of the  Big-Eddy  Mill.Means.Muchuto Tradespeople  of City���������It is Hoped  -that Company will Rebuild..  The destruction by fire last week of  the Revelstoke Lumber Company's  sawmill at the Big Eddy is a serious  loss not only to the shareholders of  the Company, but to the city of Revelstoke as well. The Company, composed entirely of local people, have  since the consti notion of their mill  ahout four years ;igo, yearly been expending largo sums in making improvements and additions to their  plant, and at thc time of the fire had  one of the most complete and up-to-  date sawmills of its capacity in the  province, the machinery being of the  latest  and   most   improved  pattern.  The general public will realize lhe  loss to' Revelstoke more fully in the  cutting of. of the Company's substan  tial pay roll "which meant a disburse-  -U3_enL.in__thp_c].ty__of__from _S5000_tor  $0000 each month. It is sincerely  hoped that the Company will at once  make arrangements for the re-build-  ing'of the mill, and as the peoplo of  Revelstoke are so vitally concerned in  the prosperity of an industry such as  this which contributes so largely to  the upbuilding of the town, no doubt  every encouragement will be given  (he Company along this line.  This Famous   Military  Band  Early in October.  Company o of the Rocky Mountain  Rifles is to be congratulated upon  securing for the citizens of Revelstoke  an opportunity of hearing the famous  Irish Guards band. By special permission of His Majesty King Edward,  this famous band has been granted  leave to visit Canada and play in the  different cities and towns where  arrangements can be made. They  will play at the national exhibition at  Toronto next month and also at the  Dominion exhibition at New Westminster the latter end of' September.  The date fixed for their appearance in  Revelstoke is Monday, October 2nd, in  the skating rink.  This band, under the leadership of  C. II. Hassell, comprises 12 of the  finest musicians in any military organization iii the empire. Thpy' have all  been selected for their special ability  on some particular instrument, each  and every one being a soloist. Mr.  Hassell, although still a comparatively  young man, has been in the service  for upwards of a quarter of a century,  during which he has been attached to  several leading military organizations,  and was selected for tho bandmaster-  ship of the Irish Guards out of 100  candidates, because he was considered  the- ablest conductor iu the service.  His income is larger than thnt of any  bandmaster, and his fame extends all  over the United Kingdom. ,   ,  The Irish Guards .were formed by  special recommendation of Earl Roberts to Her Late Majesty Queen Victoria, partly to commemorate the  valor of. her Irish troops in South  ���������Africa, and partly, as an evidence of  appreciation of the hearty .and unani.  mous welcomejextended to her by. the  "people of Ireland on her'last visit..tot  the Emerald Isle. .  Bandmaster Hassell has obtained  exceptional popularity for his methods  of adapting his programs to the tastes  and requirements of his audiences,  classic and popular music being  judiciously intermingled.  Further particulars of this musical  treat will be given later.

IS TEEMING  WITH RICHES  CORRESPONDENCE.  To llic E.Iitor of tlio U-V-LSTOKI* Ueru.d:  Sih,���������The Liberal press of the country in  publishing the opinion of  Dr.  Cai-tnichael (the  Presbyterian Superintendent of Missions for the   North  West)     concerning    the    Autonomy  legislation at Ottawa, failed to  make  clear   two   things.     First,   that  Dr.  Cai-michael's statement referred to the  school laws as existing in the Territories and their satisfactory working, not  to the proposed condition of education  as about to bc imposed by the Autonomy   bill.     Secondly,   that Dr. Cairn ichael expressed grave doubt as to  the elfect of this legislation.   He said:  '.'1 do not know what the constitutional ell'ect is and of course I  believe the-  Piovinces should have everything they  ought to have under the constitution,"  The Hon Clill'ord Sifton in closing his  remarkable speech on  the Amendec'  bill, speakes in hesitancy and  doubt.  "1 can, though  not with  very much  enthusiasm and with  some degree of  reluctance,   give.lniy support to  the  bill." ,Numbers of the Liberal representatives voted-witl^-a sore conscience  and great misgiving?, even Sir Wilfrid  Laurier in his last'speech declared it a  sacrifice.

Last week they  not only won the Kolapore Cup but  Capt. Elliott, a member of the team,  made the highest score in the compej  tition, scoring 103 out of a possible  105.  Capt. Forrest, of ^Vancouver took  first prize in the Kynoch contest.  Sergt. Crowe, of Guelph, tied with  eight others for first place in the  Prince of Wales event.  The annual meet of the R. O. Riile  Association opens today on the new  range near JSburne.  BASEllALI.  A league is being formed consisting  of clubs located at Cranbrook, Fernie,  Calgary, Medicine Hat, Nelson, Trail  and Rossland.  Why not include Revelstoke?  LAOItOSSE.  Lethbridge defeated Cranbrook last  week after an exciting game by 3  goals lo 2  The local team are endeavoring to  make arrangements for a match here  with Rossland next Wednesday afternoon. Should their efforts prove  successful the game will in all likelihood he a fast one ns the local boys  have been practising faithfully of late  and the Rossland team will be considerably strengthened by the addition  of one or two players from Nelson.  Work on the Golden and Fort  Steele Road Commenced on  Monday.���������Golden the Scene  of General' Activity,  At last the patience of the residents  of the Upper Columbia Valley has  been rewarded and the great treasures  of that district which have been lying  dormant for years awaiting transportation facilities, arc to be brought  in touch with tho outside world.  Actual construction was commenced  on Monday, a large force of men  bjingjemployed on the work and theie  is an air of general activity about  Golden which is quito unusual. A  party of C.P.R. surveyors under Mr.  Bates is", also on the ground, and Mr.  P. McPhcr.on, C.P.R. right-of-way  agent, has proceeded up the valley to  make arrangements wilh the settlers  along the road, through whose property the road will run.  The advent of th6 railway into this  most fertile valley will attract the  attention of outsiders, and a new era  of prosperity has undoubtedly dawned  for the Upper Columbia Valley,  Proposed Y. M. C. A.  Mr. George Irving, Y.M.O.A. Field  Secretary for the Canadian West,  arrived in the city Tuesday, for the  purpose of proceeding at once with  the organization of a branch of that  institution here. The time has come  when Revelstoke, in order to keep  pace with ils development, should  have a Y. M. V. A. building, and  according to present indications il wil'  not be long before such a building is  assured. An influential committee of  citizens hns the matter in hand aud  will at once begin a campaign to  secure a modern and well equipped  Y. M. O. A. building for this city. A  mass meeting of young men will bc  held in tho City Hall on Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock to consider further  plans.  Hierarchy and behind the* Hierarchv  is Rome. Today Canadians must  realize tbis fact, that in the councils of  our land, Rome is supreme. The stern  battle of 1890 seemed to have closed  the school issue forever in Canada.  It is singular that the man who  brought the struggle to a successful  issue then, is responsible ^for its reopening now. But the end is not yet.  Nothing is settled unless it is settled  right. The new provinces will begin  their existence with this fight ou their  hands and it will ultimately mean *Uie  undoing of the party which has reopened this sore and tbe curbing of  that power which is so defiant in our  land today. These are not the ideas  of bigots and fanatics, but those of tbe  sober, conscientious and reliable meu  of both parties throughout the Dominion. The growing west will cast oif  the shackles imposed.  Yours truly,   "A-PlJESUYTEKIAX;   J. I. Woodrow's Opinion of the  Big Bend   District���������What he  Saw During his   Recent visit  to the Different Camps.  Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Wells and Mr.  J. I. Woodrow returned on Satuiday  afternoon from a trip through the Big  Bend. Their trip extended over 11  days, from seven- to eight days, of  which weie spent in the saddle. The  camps visited were Carnes, Downie,  And Camp creeks, Harry Howard's  hydraulic claim, the Revelstoke and  McCullough Creek Mining Co's property on McCullough creek. The  latter property is looking very well  and a clean up is now being made.  Continuing on to French creek they  spent some time at the Marshall  Schelling Company's property and the  American Mining Co's property. At  the former pioperty Mr. Woodrow  spent two boms down the shaft, and  was much struck with what he saw.  At theAmericau Mining Co's property  bush fires had, unfortunately, destroyed about 2000 feet of the Hume the  day before tlieir arrival, whicli will  take three or four weeks to rebuild.  Mr. Woodrow is of the opinion that  the companies -operating at French  creek have two of the most valuable  properties .in the Big Bend, and will  one day realize handsome returns on  their investments.  Coining   back   to   Carnes creek, on  their return trip, Mr.  Woodrow visited Kelly and McBean's property, mak-"  ingivrecord trip fiom the river up to  the mine with J. P. Kelly' one of the  owners, in  two hours and three-quar--  lers.     Here Mr. Woodrow was aston-  i-ished   at   the development work done  and considers the owners have a" good  mine.     He   brought   down with him  some excellent samples of gold-copperr.  ore from this property. i - r.,,.   ,f _ . .  To. a-'HERALD'representative Mr.  Woodrow said that everything in 4jhe  Bend-was looking fine and "stated that  comparatively-.few of --the cilizeus'of  Revelstoke1 realized   what'u m:ignifi-,__  "cent, country-lies at the back of   the"  city.     He further expressed the opin-  that   the   feiv   wh<j  had shown their  faith   in   the  district   would eie long  reap their  reward.    At   every  point  they waited  they  were well treated,  and during 9i days of their trip they  were blessed with   fine 'weather.    Mr.  Woodrow   purposes  malting another  trip early in September.  Death of J. P. Morrow  Mr. J. D. Sibbaldreceivedatelegra.u  at 5 o'clock last evening announcing  tho de.ith by accident of Mr. John P.  Morrow, vice-president and director  of the Revelsloke fc McCullough Creek  Hydraulic Mining Co. The deceased  was killed yesteiday afternoon in an  automobile accident. Mr. Morrow  has been a visitor to Revelstoke a  number of times in connection with  the placer mines at McCullough creek  and be was expected in thc city again  by the end of the month.

Ho is a pronounced pluralist in tho

four times an carl, four times a viscount, and four times a baron : in
tho peerage of Scotland, once an |
carl and five times a baron in the
English peerage, nnd co-heir to five
other baronies. It is conceivable,
therefore, that he might hold at one

Russia's aggressive policy on the
Afghan frontier continues. A new
branch lino of railway is now being
constructed from Samarkand to
���'Pernios, on the Iiiver Oxus, opposite

to seize Herat and occupy Khoras-

This program could bo���'carried out

Suddenly ho raised his head,  straightened himself, and looked beyond the wide expanse of cropped  fields at the dingy town which' lay in  the hollow of tho bills.  "Alas!" lic cried to himself, in a  hot breath, waving a hand at the  town. "Look at that dark hunger-  haunted place! Then mount higher  antl look down into yonder valley;  run your ayes over * Palgrave's park-  lands, and compare it to that���������and  what vou know is thero! Can you  wonder, John Harman, that tho poor  - hate the rich and . the rich despise  thc poor?''  As he ceased speaking and looked  quickly along the road an air of embarrassment came over him. A horse,  rioden by a lady, was cantering up  the hill towards hiin. As she drew  close the hot blood mounted into his  face.  "We are well mot, Mr. Harmon,"  she exclaimed, drawing close up to  whe. J he. stood and turning on him  ix pair of large, grey eyes.  "That sounds strango from thc  -- daughter of the mill to the strikers'  demagogue, Miss Palgravc!" he answered, losing his awkwardness as he  spoke.  "You are more than a demagogue  ���������antl less, Mr. Harman," she said,  with a bright smilo; "or, instead of  being alone up hero, you would bc  down in the-squaro, where I passed  a crowd of strikers anxious to cheer  you to thc echo."  "And you a.-o something more than"  the daughter of thc mill���������if I may  say so, or you would not dare to  ritle through' ihe ranks of your father's starving workpeople. Tliey  must have admired your courage; at  tho same lime, there aro black sheep  in every fold, and as your father's  daughter you ran no little risk in  venturing through  the town  alone."  "I wanted to judge for myself the  attitude, of the strikers," she -replied. "My maids, tell me that they  heard in the town the-people may  resort to violence���������talk of liring the  " mill or flooding tho estate by, breaking down the rcservoir-dnm. I did  not 'see anything threatening in thc  attitude of tlio people."  "I have heard whispers of such  things," ho said, gravely. "I have  been up hero every afternoon lately  to examine the dam and. to find if  nny attempt lias been made to scale  the .mill-wall. The men arc desperate. Miss Palgrace. and. though it  does not follow they will do desperate deeds, a handful of men could  accomplish" cither of those things.  And T linvo not worked in llic mill  from childhood to manhood without  finding some  of  tlie men   were  bad."  "if  tlie dam  gavo  wny "  "Your home, would be swept from  its   foundations."  Sho nodded slowly, letting, hcr eyelids droop till her lashes swept her  checks.  "Father has sworn tliat if any  dam ape is done lo the mill," she  s-nifi, wilh gentle deliberation, "ho  will raze it. to the ground and leave  Ratlcy for ever."  "I don't think anything like that  will happen. I can answer for it  that most of th'o men wish to gain  th'eir aims peacefully. Rut Vir. Tal-  grave must disabuse himself from  any idea th'at - I could hold them  back. I couldn't. Tlioy have been  lockcd-otit for more than three  month's, and their funds havo long  since, been exhausted. Three times  in the past month sheer agony of  ���������starvation-and -hearing-th'eir���������littlo  ones cry has led them to reduce their  just demands; and still Mr. Palgravc  insists on unconditional surrender.  Ho feels safe in relying on hi.s  wealth'. But every hour his. danger  increases; it is real, it is urgent. I  sliall be powerless to stem the tide  if the people turn violently against  liim at the failure of their .last  liopc."  "I sliould have expected you to bo  one of the last to threaten us," she  said, a proud 'flush'mounting to h'er  checks, as sho stirred linr horse's-  niano with her whip.' "My father  '"has"shown* you somo goodness, and I  ���������have I not shown, ah' interest in  your inventions and studios?"  "My words must have played mc  false, Miss Palgrave,". he answered,  witli emotion, "if you could construe  theni into a threat. I'have owed my  bread to Mi*. Palgrace, for lie took  ine in nnd guve-me work when my  parents died nnd left mo friendless.  And . you���������I- owo much* inoro.

"You used to tell nio about your  own lessons," ho went on, as if tho  subject delighted him, "and when I  went homo I woultl try to do the  same, so I could talk lo you of tliem  next time you came. I soon coula  do your German, French', and English lessons, and rushed in front of  you in mathematics; and when 5"ou  learnt I was inventing my new  process you helped me over many an  awkward problem, at which I should  have despaired, by saying tliat you  hoped 1 should succeed." Ho stopped abruptly. Then he nsked, "Do  you think I should threaten you,  Miss Palgrave, or anything you  loved?"  "What would you advise?" she  asked gently, after a pause.  "I have advised, cajoled, argued;  and implored, but Mr. Palgrave refuses to see what is fair and wise,  trusting to me t.o hold thcm in antl  to himself to break thorn to surrender."  "I will speak to father, and if I  think you could do any good I will  senu for you. I am afraid you have  suffered as much as anybody by. the  strike."  "Oh, no; I have experienced great  loss,   but   not   actual   suffering. I  ought to have been coining money  by my new processes, but I pledged  thcm to your father for two'years,  antl the machines had scarcely boon  set in iinotion when tho strike began.  1 have had to refuse good offers from  Morton's and from tho Kember Mills.  IJut T havo not starved."  "Jn  tho    circumstances my     fatlier  ought  to  cancel the agreement,"  slie  replied,    thoughtfully.       "Rut       the  lock-out cannot go on mucli longer."  "Lock-out  or  no,  I shall  be     rich  in  a  few  years'   time,"   he returned,  with  a  quiet laugh.     "Tlio value    of  my   inventions   is   admitted   on     all  sides."  A strange ?ook came inlo her face.  "Good-bye,"      she     saitl,    quickly,  holding out hcr hand to him.     "     I  will send for you if it may do good."  Ifor a few moments lie stood     and  watched her ride awny.    Then,  fearing she might look back and see him  watching,   he  turned  and  began     to  descend  the hill.  He slopped and looked buck along  the road. ��������� Hu could sec hcr riding  ovcr ihe brow of thc hill, right into  tho sun, so it appeared. "^ almost  had it on my tongue to tell her," h'e  muttered. "Would she liavo laughed  at my rough love as sha laughed at  my rough tongue, years back? Somo  day, oven if she shall laugh mc to  utter shame, I will tell her that I  lovo her." Ho drove'his hands deep  into his pockets and went on.  He went straight to the square,  which constituted a sort, of common  meeting-place ,for the strikers, and  there, in tho gathering gloom, groups  of men wore standing about idly, as  usual. . They greeted liim with sullen nods of recognition, and here and  there  witli  mumbled  words. '  ,  -  T-'e hatl crossed the square and was  tjoing dejectedly along a quiet street  towards hi.s lodgings, when a woman  stepped out of a black passage   and  touched him on thc arm.    "Well, Jenny, woman, what is it  now?" ho asked,  stopping.  "If you want to lead the men' you  should stay in the square an' talk  loud," sho said, in a whisper.  "Kobblo an' Collycr 'ave 'ad a meet-  in- this afternoon,-an' talked straight  at you. Jiut that's not it. There's  a o'ark game goin' on, wilh Collycr,  Roverley, an' a few more."  "I know," ho said, quickly: "I liave  my eyes and cars open. Keep -your  ���������lim out ot it. I have told them  ovcr and over again that Sir. Palgravc is not tho man to bo frightened."  Ho' went home, and while he  snatched a light meal two or three  strikers called in to seo hiin, each  with the same tale of hunger and despair tliat mu'de his gorge rise at  his food. He gavo theni some encouragement, and broke a loaf between thom, pledging tliem to stand  hy him at any time that he might  need thoir aid.  ���������"Roger." -lie_said-to"th"o~last of  thcm, "there's a foul scheme hatching���������a scheme which, if carried out,  will shut down the miill for ever. You  see this maroon? Take it and this  shining; stay at homo to-night and  every evening this week, and if you  hear a maroon fired on Mill Hill, firo  this in your yard. It will be a signal to a score of honest men like  yourself, who have sworn to protect  the mill and the dam; and the police  will hoar and understand."  Tlic man picked up the maroon and  fingered it.  "And who'll fire 'jin on Mill '111?"  in a deep voice and with a curious  look.  "I shall," snicf Harman, quietly.  "Rut I can't trust my -maroon to be  lieard all over tho town���������the Wind  may be averse; but you will certainly hear it."  Roger nodded and dropped the maroon into-his pocket.  Had Harman watched his visitor  down tlic road ho would have seen hiip  joincn by two men, who, apparently,  liad been waiting for hiin; and Harman would have recognized the man  to whom Roger gave the maroon by  his club-foot. Hut, as it was, he felt  satisfied that his plans were complete.  After liis meal lie spent a couplo of  hours going round tlie town, trying  by a few words here and there to  clieer some of thoso whom the strike  hit hardest, 'mid hoping at Ilie same  time to discover what sort of support live violent campaign of Collycr  Roverley was likely to receive. On  tlie whole lic wus confirmed in . his  views that Heverley nntl his club-  footed co-schemer had but vcry small  following.

Tlio incident���������perhaps illogicall'",  sinco it proved th'at Collyer and  some of his men at least had not begun violent measures���������decided him to  go to Mill Hill.  After half an hour's walk, when ho  was approaching the point in the  road where it divided and turned off  ���������on the one hand past the mill ami  on the other hand past tho reservoir  ���������he became conscious of. the eerie  feeling that someone was watching  him, although' he knew no human  eyes could penetrate ten yards of  such darkness ns tliat surrountiing  him. With every few steps tho feeling grew stronger on hiin; and he  walked straight to the spot where  he felt the watcher stood.  "Who are you?" asked a voice from  a figure which drew back at his approach.  "You. Miss Palgravc?" he cried.  ���������"'Such a night as this���������alone?"  "I am not afraid of a little bad  weather," she punted, "and I thought  when I. set out that I was not afraid  of darkness, but���������I shall never get  home if you won't see me there."  "I will, of course," ho said, absently.     "Rut why are you out?"  "Oli, I was reading in my own  room', and. tho wind and the rain  sounded so. like rushing water! I'm  afraid I am a coward after all. Mr.  Harman, for T had to come out to  satisfy myself the dam was all  right."  "I'm     afraid    you     aro  dreadfully  damp."    Darkness  gave  hiin  courage  to touch lightly her cloak.  "I  havo  been     standing     here  some  time,"   slio    answered,   "hoping    'for  someone to come my way."  "And  you  havo  seen no  one?"  "Not a soul!     Wliat a  lonely part  this is!"  "I think 1 can take you straight  across the fields, if you will trust  mo. It would savo a long detour,  and the sooner you get a change    of  clothes "    Ho slopped,  amazed at  his boldness and  familiarity.  "I think I should feel safer if I  might take your arm," shc said.  They wero Hearing tlie trough of  the valley when Harman stopped and  looked back over his shoulder into  tlio impenetrable darkness.  "What���������did you hear something?"  slio asked,  softly.  "I thought .my eye caught the flash  of a light," hc answered, after a moment's  hesitation.     "You  wore  past  the dam  to-night?"  ,' "No; I was on my way thero when  my courage gave out."  "I  understood  lhat you���������-���������"  "Look!"    Yes, a light.    Gone!    You  aro  trombling."  '���������'Yes," he cried, fiercely, seizing lier  hands,' "trembling wilh rage at my  infamous neglect. I- came purposely  to satisfy-'mysclf the dam was not  being tampered with, ami I have  brought j-ou down Here, under its  very shadow, while someone is trying  to breach  it!" .  "It may have b'eon the light of a  cart- passing along the road," slio  whispered,  gently.  He looked away towards the mansion, whose windows shone out into  the rain.  "Do you think you coulti make  your way round on to tlic Mill Hill  Road whilo I go on to warn them at  the houso? I cannot tell liow many  there may he at work up there or  what appliances they hnvo. Wc may  have moments, we may have hours,  but we must think of safety beforo  trying to stop  tliose fiends."  "Look!" she cried, clinging closely  to him.  Far up abovo them on tlic hill a  bunch of long, bright flames cut into  tho black night and vanished.  no swung her round towards the  Mill Hill Road as the roar of the explosion rolled over th'om.  "Run!" he cried, hoarsely, in her  ear, putting his arm round'her waist  to steady lier. "Run for your life!"  His voice was drowned in tho  thunder of the escaping waters. Rut  they ran and ran, treading higher  ground and higher, sped by the raging voice of the onrushing torrent.  Hc felt her faltering and liis own  strength giving out in the horror of  the thought that he might not savo  he*;"-and"tfio waters-s"ce"urcd"alr"eady~  to bo thundering around them. Thon  suddenly she was torn from him. He  clutched to hold her even as h'e felt  himself picked up ' by the mighty  stream, and he was swept away,  over and ovcr, while all th'o oceans  of the-world seemed to wash and  roar around him. It was a nnad,  wild, frenzied light for air, for life,  and a desperate, hopeless struggle to  breast the waters and spend his  strength to save her. .Oyer-.- nnd  ovcr, now swept away, he fancied,  for miles, now tossed like a feather  on whirlpool,  then���������������������������_  He was conscious of a dull pain  in his side and a mad throbbing in  his head.

He  could hear nothing but tlio flood  r.pshing away to the river in the  distance.  He. tried to cry out. "Helen!'' but  only a ^choking whisper passed his  lips. In clambering to his feet he  struck his head "--against- something,  nnd fincing it to be ei gate-post, was  able to judge approximately where he  was. lie guessed, loo, that tho ga.to  had strained him out.of the' flood.  Rut.'Helen���������where was  she?  Surdeidy he remembered nil oltl  barn which liad stood close to the  gale. He found it still standing,  and inferred from the fact -that he  could only liavo been caught by the  edge of the torrent.  Ho stumbled into tho barn, antl,  finding to Kis joy his match-box still  safo in his inner pocket, he gathered  sonic hay and "straw together nnd  fired th'e barn for light. Then, splitting a ft-nther-boartl for a torch, he  went in search of Helen.  The glare from the barn lit up tlie  hideous scene of devastation. Thc  Hoods' hai drained  off,  leaving great  down, and only a great Heap of masonry alio a few square yards of walls  marked tho place where the mill-  owner's  mansion  had  stood.  Harman felt his heart bursting  with despair ns he gazed on tho awful scene. Then suddenly ho espied  something resembling a body entangled among the branches of a fallen tree. He hobbled to it. It was  Roverley, his neck broken, the victim  of  his  own  fell  schemes.  "HelenI" ho cried, looking about  hinr. not knowing which way to go  with any hope of finding her. "Helen!"

Then, suddenly, she  seized him by the shoulders and kissed him passionately on tho lips. And  before ho could draw his breath lho  four men were wilh them, and Helen  was in her father's  trembling arms.  Harman stood b.v, .shivering, whilo  one of the men accompanying Mr.  Palgrave poured into his unattontivo  ear a tale of how tho household had  been warned in time to escape out  of tlio valley with'the horses and carriages.  "Wo almost gave Miss Helen up  for lost," the man concluded. "Oh,  what a night���������an  awful night!"

Whero cream sauces aro used it is  better antl safer to put them in a  farina boiler untl then add tha meat.  The seasoning of recooked meats requires special skill, for tho law of  combination is by no moans fixed.  Veal and chicken are tho easiest  ���������moats ..to rccook, beef comes noxt,  while lamb and mutlon more often  tax th'o resources. They need moro  palatable seasoning, and a little  acid, like a chopped pickle or olive,  or a tablespoon of capers adds to  their flavor.'  Game is usually cut in delicato  slices or minced antl rewarmed in a  brown sauce, to which currant or  other acid jellies, spices, or condiments have been added. Croquettes  can be made of beef, veal, chicken, or  turkey; ragout and curries of all the  meats, including-game; souflles of  veal, chicken, or turkey.

When  I  see a man walking with an  In one of Stoessel's last despatches  a to the Czar, a despatch penned in  the days of desperation, he accused  tho Japanese of deliberately firing on  lho Port Arthur hospitals, says tho  London Times. Immediately on tho  heels of this accusation the wires  brought word that it found uo credence in England. Tho comment of  thej the Japanese journals was vevy simple. They printed tho London telegram with tho heading '"Tlioy seo  that look." It is right that the  Rriti&h nation should know how well-  founded its judgment wa.s. The facts  arc those. On Becctnber llth General  Slossel addressed a letter to General  Nogi, complaining that the Japanese  guns were tiring nt hospitals plainly  distinguished by tho Red Cross llag.  General Nogi replied in writing that  the Japanese army, always respecting humanity ant! international conventions, had never intentionally laid  a gun on a building marked with  the Red Cross, but, inasmuch as tho  greater part of the interior of tho  fortress was invisible from thc investing troops' positions, ihere could  be no absolute security for any edi-  left- fice in tho line of fire,  ain RUSSIAN   REQUESTS.  Thereafter General RalashofT, the  officer in command of the ambulunco  at Port Arthur, had a conference  with delegates of the Japanese army,  from whom he endeavored to elicit  a promise that large sections of the  two towns of Port Arthur should bc  neutralized, as they contained quarters for sick and wounded. Tho Jap-  aneso declined to entertain such .a  proposal. They pointed out that the  sections in question comprised import  tant military buildings, such as the  central provision depot, the fiour..  mill, and so forth, and they suggested that it was for the Russians ta  remove their hospitals out of the  normal anil necessary line of fire,  instead of seeking to have the latter diverted from the former. General RalashofT then asked permission to  send in a map showing the sites of  the Russian hospitals, and the Japanese agreed to receive it, without,  however, any engagement to bo guided by it. On December 18 General  BalashofI presented the map. It was  a remarkable chart.

In  order to secure immunity for^ all  these buildings the batteries woultl  have had to refrain altogether from  firing into cither of thc towns, which  contained barracks, stores, ofllcial  buildings, and factories, as well as  into tho West Port, where several  ships lay. General Nogi's Chief of  Staff, in acknowledging the receipt  of this map, wrote:���������"The ,.Japaneso  artillery will not in any circumstances train its guns intentionally  on hospitals displaying the sign of  tho Red Cross; but; since the buildings marked as hospitals on the plan  arc situated in tho midst of an close  to buildings which we deem it necessary to bombard, we cannot bc absolutely sure, in view of the inevitable deviation of projectiles, that  our shells may not strike the indicated buildings." Stoessel had this  despatch before liim, and had been  for ten days in possession of all thc  facts relating to the negotiations.  When, on December 28, ho telegraphed to tho Czar that the Japanese  were "making a point of firing on  his hospitals."  JAPANESE RESTRAINT.

THE NEW PROVINCES  AND THEIR LANDS  Universal condemnation of "the Dominion   Government's    cruel    policy  with reference to the Crown  Lands in  Alberta    and   Saskatchewan    marks  journalistic comment upon   the subject.   The new journal  of Frank,  an  independent newspaper, recently said:  "The   people   of   this  section���������the  coal   land   section���������of   tUlicrtn,    had  hoped,   when   the    Government   announced   that   Autonomy   would   bo  granted, that a new order of things  would obtain, under Provincial status,  supposing   tho Province  would  own  the   land,  and   that     the    countless  thousands of acres now held by favored parties who have never paid a  dollar on them  beyond,  perhaps,  the  ' S5 application fee,    would   revert to  the public domain, and the bona fide  prospector gets his rights,   but under  the provisions of the Autonomy bills  their hopes are blighted.    *   *   *   It  is  common   report   that   the   public  domain   has   hitherto   been administered in a similar way in other sections  than   the coal   regions,   and this,  us  well as the consideration of the loss to  the   Provinces,   would seem to have  afforded |even" as  good  grounds for  opposing   the   present   form   of    the  Autonomy bills as coercion."  ====The=RdekyiMountain=Echov=a-Rothei!.  independent paper,  in  the  course  of  an able article upon the subject,  says:  " Alberta and Saskatchewan entered  Confederation with a subsidy,  generous   enough,   perhaps,   but   a    mere  pittance compared with  tlie value  of  the lands and minerals*  that the  Dominion Government retains  its  grasp  upon.    In the days  to come we   will  be bitterly regretting that we allowed  our   attention   to   waver  a   moment  from the material  benefits  of  possession when we find ourselves hampered  in   the   proper   development   of  thi.s  great Province of Alberta  by lack of  funds not to be   raised   save by  the  ���������imposition of heavy direct taxation."  And yet there are Liberals who so  far forget constitutional prerogative,  as   to apologise    for    the   shameful  hampering of two splendid  provinces.  OTTAWA   CONSPIRATORS  If credence can be given to what  are    apparently  well   authenticated  rumors, the Ottawa Government  intends to add further iniquity to their  policy in   connection   with   the new  North West Provinces.     Sot content  with strangling privileges supposed to  be vouchsafed by the British Nortii  America    Act;   not     satisfied   with  stifling public opinion and outraging  constitutional privileges,  it is openly  (isserted that a conspiracy has been Gulicians,  entered into by Liberals at Ottawa  and in Alberta and Saskatchewan, to  drive Mr. Haultain out of office and  establish so-called Liberal administrations. Lieutenant-Governor Forget,  himself a violent partisan and known  as a political intriguer, is spoken of  as likely to be transferred to Alberta.  Mr. Forget had one term of office and  last year his commission was renewed,  although an English-speaking representative was entitled to the office.  Thus British Columbia and the whole  of the North AVest Territories are  presided over by gentleman of the  same nationality as Sir AVilfrid Laurier. All things being equal, and  providing these olTici.-ils were superior  to any English-speaking candidate,  object. But tliey aro, Mi*. Forgot  being confined to Government House  weeks at a liinc, unable to attend to  his duties. It is manifestly wrong  that ti monopoly should be given to  any favorite of the Ottawa rulers���������  and there must be sonic cogent political reason for this action. Not tliat  we boiicve Mr. Forget to be unfit for  Ollice, but a Lieut.-Governor should  know neither party and favor no  particular faction. Altogether, judging from the sentiments expressed,  even by Liberals, Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and his colleagues are rapidly undermining their positions and losing the  confidence of the country. For instance, Doctor^De Veber, of Leth-  bridgp, a prominent representative in  the Territorial Legislature openly denounces the nefarious tactics of the  leaders at Ottawa. He writes to the  Lethbridge News :���������  " I have represented this district in  the Assembly during two of its terms.  On neither of these occasions did I run  on party lines, nor have I in any way  or on any occasion allowed Dominion  "parities��������� io���������ifliiivelTce~ivny^decisioir"T)i'  action of mine. I have given an un-  deviating support to Mr. Haultain,'a  Conservative in Dominion politics, liut  whose opinions re introduction of  party politics in the Northwest House  coincide with mine. Tlic first few  vears of the new Provinces will bo the  critical time, nnd in their formation,  in tlio making of laws to govern tliem,  in tlie forming of tho newdepartments  and in thc placing tliem on a good  foundation, will require all the men  of experience nnd ability available,  irrespective of politics. Holding such  opinions, you may rest assured that  should party lines be introduced it will  bo none of my seeking."  This is gospel truth as all must  admit, who aro not grossly prejudiced  when tlic grent Province of Ontario  started on its Provincial career in 1867  the bost men of both parties coalesced  in order that brains and not hitter  partisanship, should enter into the  service of tho people. The retention  of the crown lands belonging to tlie  Provinces is another violation of  popular rights. Does Sir Wilfrid  Laurier aim at establishing ������. second  Quebec west of Manitoba, thus neutralizing the influence of tho English  speaking people ? Crown lands should  bc administered by those responsible  for Provincial management, not  utilised at Ottawa for tho purpose of  filling    tho     new     Provinces    with  Delivered by Rev. W. C. Calder of St. Andrew's Church  ���������The Orange Association and  the Autonomy Bill.  "For the word of God is quick, and  powerful anil sharper thnn any two-  edged sword, piercing even to the  dividing asunder of soul and spirit,  anil joints and marrow and is a dis-  coi-ntu- uf the thoughts and intents of  the heart."���������Hebrew IV., 12.  The  preceding context gives us tho  true application of our text.   There is  a "rest" prepared   for   the  people   of  God.     Tho   necessity   is to labour to  enter   into   that   rest.     The word of  God  is judicial and  will cut between  all that is false and true and nothing  can   escape   the   searching   power of  God.   Nothing that is wrong can enter  into that rest.    It concerns the future  life.   While this is the case our text is  applied and can  be   to  the affairs of  this   life   and  as such is quick, and  powerful and sharper than any two-  edged sword.    In this secondary sense  I use tho  passage, and   offers it as a  solvent for all tho ills of life, political,  national and individual. Before applying our text as a solvent for national  and individual troubles I would like to  deal with  the atlitude of   the Loyal  Orange Association towards our fellow  Roman Catholic citizens.   As an Association we arc charged with boing the  stirrers up of strife, tiie cause of trou  ble,   and   misunderstandings.    If this  were the case I would leave the Order  tomorrow uud no longer remain in its  ranks.     There  is however one thing  forgotten  that our   Order is founded  upon the Word of God and this word  declares that light and darkness cannot agree, and the light as it shines  discovers tho darkness, and how great  that darkness is.     Our Lord and Saviour who came from above to preach  peace and   love * and  tho salvation of  mini, declared, I came not "to preach  peace  but a sword."'     There is a conflict on  between  error and truth and  thi.s shall continue until righteousness  shall triumph and  Christ's kingdom is  established...The settling of the school  question in 1SO0 seemed, to have settled  our troubles   in'this  regard for ever.  We fondly hoped that we could hence  forth go forward in the way of national progress in peace.     This year however   we   are   brought   to a national  crisis through the  introduction of the  Autonomy bill into   parliament which  essays to  force  separate schools upon  the new provinces to be formed.   I am  a Conservative, if   I  claim any part)*.  It is born in uu .      I was one of those  who in '00 turned away from my party  and friends and supported Sir Wilfrid  Laurier in  what we felt was his noble  stand   in   the   Manitoba   school difficulty.    I thought it was a grand thing  to   see   a   Frenchman   and a Roman  Catholic   standing   out   and  likely to  stand  for all time  in our history as a  monument  for  union    and  national  progress.     But prognostications have  been realized and  Sir Wilfrid Laurier  h'a5==gdne-"trre���������wray���������ifc=was-hinted=at  that he would go.     He"has gone back  on   his   noble   record   and opengd up  once again  this  troublesome question  of separate schools.     Sir Wilfrid is a  great and good  man and one of whom  we-should  be justly proud, but he is  under authority and is not free.    It is  easily   understood   how   when young  the blood  runs fresh and strong, generous   impulses  and   noble ambitions  rule.     But Sir Wilfrid is growing old  and the church  holds in its hands his  eternal   destinies  and   he must make  his peace with her.    Not a word, not a  hint was given before the late election  that school matters  were to bc touched.    Carried into power by an unprecedented  majority and supported by  many who looked to him with pride,  for   he   had   also   given good government, the   Autonomy   bill  is   sprung  upon   the   country.     His followers in  parliament  are  driven  into tx corner,  in   fact  a  great political crisis is on.  The   newly   elected   havo    eitlier   to  wreck the great Liberal party and go  buck   to   another   election  or sustain  their leader.     Tlie  original clauses of  tho  Autonomy bill sought to restore  tho legislation  of 1875 which gave to  tho   Territories   separate   schools   in  their   most   offensive   form.      It was  impossible   to   carry    this   and     lho  amended clause was substituted.    Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier in  his latest deliverance   says  Territories   as   existing.     That is national   schools   and  separate schools.  Separate   only   in name.   That there  shall be the one standard for teachers,  uniform  text books, and from 3:30 in  the afternoon iin til 4 religion can be  taught.     The   Hoii...Mr.     Haultain,  premier of the Territories holds that  the amended clause restores the legislation   of  1S75   and earmarks for all  time tho  public revenues for thc. support of separate schools.    It is not my  intention   this  evening  to discuss the  Autonomy  bill  but  to  stale the attitude of out- Association towards this  measure. .The Loyal Orango Association takes its stand on the principle of  equal rights to  nil and special privileges to none.     It opposes tho idea of  church and state and for these reasons  stands unalterably against the Autonomy   bill   in   its   educational clauses.  What is  the policy of the Church of  Rome   in - regard   to national schools.  It  is   first   to   weaken   them then to  destroy   them.     Tliis  is her policy in  the United States  where she is establishing   parochal  schools.     It   is her  policy in Canada. Why is she opposed  to the public  school?   Because in the  public schools history is taught, and  Rome does not like history.     Vou go  to Nova Scotia, to Halifax where there  is a large Roman Catholic community  and while legally she has no separate  rights yet concessions are granted and  she   has   in a large   measure separate  schools.     Compare   lho   work.     All  studies taught such as grammer, geography, arithmetic, etc., aro the same  as in tho Provincial schools, bul history is different.     Wherever Roman  Catholics have the privilege of a choice  they    prefer    tho     public      schools  for   their   children."    They   will   not  send  their   children   to  the separate  school unless the church compels them.  In   Ontario   where   members   of thc  Roman   Catholic   church   have  their  children in the public schools they are  uneasy   on   account   of   the   present  agitation lest the church should compel them to  withdraw  their children  and send thenr to:the separate schools.  A prominent Roman Catholic writing  to the Toronto. Telegram  blames the  separate    schools    fur   the' distrust  among   the   people   of   Ontario.   He  says they breed suspicion and distrust  and intolerance. i-'Lett  to  themselves  the Roman .Catholic   people of  this  country would prefer national schools.  This is largely the case  in  the Territories to-day.  The attitude of our Association towards our Roman Catholic fellow  citizens must be in harmony with out*  constitution. We seek not to infringe  upon their rights.

Tlint  the French  race in this Dominion vvill ever stand  apart.   Wo   aro   more hopeful.    Our  French compatriots have nmny things  to pride themselves in.   Their history  is ii  nohle  one.    Their  ttaditions  du  much to encourage 11 pride in nice. XVe  sympathise with theni in theso things.  At present Quebec rules this Dominion  and in the interests of Koine, it is  the  Word of Und whicli .ilone can  change  this.    I could tell you  some  pleasant  things in this regard had I tho  timo,  but I must hasten on.     AVe  must aid  our churches as  they aim to  let the  Word of God do its work  throughout  our land and amongst  the  thousands  of strangers as they are filling up the  Territories.   National schools and the  Word of God are the great solvents of  our national ills.     Brethern  it is the  "Word of  God  which   is quiuk and  sharper than any two-edged sword,"  which must bo   the   solvent   for   our  individual ills.     Remember our constitution is the "Word of God." What  manner of men we ought to  he,   wc  can only 1)6 powerful and  influential  in this land.ns   we   nre   true   to   our  principles.   Were God to come to  us  today I feel it would be in the language  of the spirit to the churches of  old, "1  have somewhat against thee."   I have  a sympathy with those who charge us  with being sometimes what we should  not be.   It is for us "to quit ourselves  like men.''   On Wednesday  morning  ive shall hear once again  the heat of  the Oi tinge drum, and as we march to  its   throb  and   lo   Protestant   Eoys,  Orange Flowers, Sons of William and  Boyne Water, it will thrill our hearts  and speak to us not of the  Battle of  the Boyne as a victory of Protestants  over Roman Catholics but as a great  victory for undying principles,  which  settled not* local .difficulties  but was  woi Id wide in its results confirming to  us and throughout the woi Id civil and  religious liberty.     And   why- should  not we rejoice.   To everyone who has  in his veins the blood of the men  who  suffered and J3ied^tp_sec'ure forus what  ������������������we enjoy-this   niust   be.,."--We   must  prove ourselves worthy sons of worthy  sires.     The  Boyne   marks   a   period  when  blood  was  no more to flow on  Irish   soil,, when- the .long  50   years  struggle of the covenanters in Scotland  ���������was to close when  the.vales and level  etretches of England were no longer  to be marked with strife.

Any  I good, healthy footl given in proper  quantity will bring the cow up to  this normal quality of milk and aftor  that no change of food can chango  quality, either to make it richer or  poorer.  The belief is prevalent that when  turnod to pasture in , the  the change from dry food to  wet induces a larger How of poorer  milk. Indeed, this idea is' *so:grounded ' in .dairy, thought, that it is incorporated in the laws of some  states that allow a poorer quality of  milk to bo sold during May. and Juno  than during the rest of the year. I  havo tested this matter both with  my own herd and with somo 300  cows .belonging to several-.'dilferent'  farms and representing widely varying environment, feed and caro. .In  some cases tho milk improved slightly when tho cows went lo pasture,  in some it changed in the opposite  direction. The average w-us practically  no  change.  WHY MILK FAT VARIES.  Yet every dairyman knows that  milk varies in its richness. If, then,  this is-;hot due to tlie feed,what is  the cause? Most of tlie variation is  due to Uie changes in connection  with the progress of the period of  lactation. Just after a cow calves,  the milk! is. thp. thinnest it. is to be  any time in the year and it remains  with but little change in quality until tho cow gets in calf* again. Then  as the quality of milk gradually do-  creases, the per cent, of fat slowly  rises and tho milk is richest in fal  just before the cow goes dry. Tho  extent of the variation differs widely  y    croppo  j.vated will,     under ordinary maiiago-  iment,   steadily   lose   its   humus,     and  the sort of fibrous mold which  is nl-  I ways  prosont in  land rich   in    humus,  ! and .which  operates  largely to     hold  the soil  from     washing,  both  ns     a  mechanical   hindrance and  as  an  absorbent.  An ofliciont remedy, if coupled with  other, reasonable caro, will be. found  in .seeding the land to some of tho  perennial grasses after evory. two  years of cultivation. Clover alono  will not do so .well unless sown  very thick, as the roots are so  courso. Wo always sow- a 'mixture.  lf.it is not desirable to use for pasturage, a. crop or two of liny 'may  bo taken oif, and then it. gootl crop  of green manure or soiling crops  maybe turned under. This is often  regarded quito advantageous in farm  work.  with  one  th'e  "Have you   been  looking  for    mo?  she said  with  the  simplicity  of     in-]  nocence. i  "For no one else, I assure you,"!  he said, touched by the child-like  candor.

The   Discovery     ci      a    Woman's  Skeleton  Recalls  an   Old  Romance.  A romance of half a century ago  litis been revived by n discovery at  Inch Island, Dinglo Bay, Co. Kerry,  says  the London Kxprcss.  A boy who wiih -strolling across tho  island .struck his fool against sonio-  thing sticking out of tho ground. Ho  stooped down to soe what it was.  llu had unearthed a huavan skull,  and, full of fear, he lied incontinently from the spot.  lie told his tidings, and the police  went to tho plnce and began to dig.  Two feet below the surfaco thoy  found the skeleton of a full-grown  woman, of medium  height.  An inquest wus hold, b\l\ the jury  could arrive at no decision. Thoro  wa.s no evidence of identification, and  thero wa.s nothing to show the circumstances of thu woman's death.  And Ihen there came hack to tho  minds of the old islanders e. memory  which seemed to solve the mystery.  Fifty years ago, snys tho Irish Independent; there lived on Inch Island  a mini named M'oriurty, who had lho  reputation of being much of a smuggler and not a littlo of a pirate. Iio  traded,'''without the co-operation of  tho revenue authorities, with a  Spanish wino .merchant, whoso son  frequently visited  Moriarty.        -  TALE OF TWO LOVERS.  .During one of these visits ho fell  violently in lovowith Aileen Moriarty, who was nlso beloved by Mur-  togh O'Sullivnn, lho handsome young  lieutenant of her father in his illicit  trade.  Tho .Spaniard won Aileen's heart,  ami preparations woro begun on a  lavish  scale for the wyldiug.  Hut when tho marriage day dawned Ailoon and Mui-tagh had vanished. For many days a feverish but  InclTcctivu search was nindo for them,  and at length the young Spaniard -  sailed homo bcrert of his bride.  Thc Island tongues Were busy, nnd  it was 'generally agreed that Mur-  lagh hud done Ailoon to dealh and  fled from the scene of his crime.  The story was toltl at the fireside  on winter nights, and the ghost of  Aileen  enme to corroborate  it.  Wayfarers saw hor wandering in  tho moonlight with the hilt, of a*  duggcr protruding from hor breast.  Others beheld her wraith, at tho  spot whore tho skeleton!was found,  kneeling in hcr bridal robes.  Although tho law is unsatisfied, (ho  islanders of Inch are convinced that  the remains arc those of tho murdered  daughter of the smuggler.  FARM  NOTES.  .

How  common and how successful he was  experts who hnvo had ancient documents put before tliem well know.  It is wonderful how many of those,  the genuineness of wliich has nover  been suspected, the expert is able,  by tho aid of modern science, unhesitatingly to pronounce forgorios.  "By naturo and habit individuals  contract a system of forming letters  whicli gives a character to their  writing ns distinct as that of thc  human faco," declared Netherclift,  the first recognized handwriting export. It seems, perhaps, a startling  saying, but it is true, as thousands  of criminals have found to their cost.  Noil Cream, tho mysterious poisoner of women in tho south of London  in .1892, found a certain peculiarity  in his handwriting of material assistance to tho polico in dragging him  to'the late on the scaffold he so well  deserved. It was. Cream's practise to  poison a woman and then to send  A  BLACKMAILING  LETTER,  generally to a doctor���������Neil was himsolf an " American tlt.B.���������demanding  money, under a throat of the recipient being charged with the deed.  These letters were, of course, in a  disguised handwriting, and Neil had  devised an ingenious method of baffling detection. It was not good  enough, however, and when tho letters wero collected and compared  wilh others admittedly written by  Neil there wore remarkable similarities in each which made it clear that  they were all the production of the  same  man.  Recognized specialists in the examining and comparison of handwriting appear to have been unknown in England till a lithographer, Joseph Kctherdlft, came before  the public as an expert. A Mr.  Jaincs Wood, a draper and banker of  Gloucester, died, leaving a fortune  of ������1,000,000. Wood was an eccentric character, with a partially to  making wills and hiding thom in the  most absurd places in his house,  where hc lived a solitary existence.  After his decease will aftor will and  codicil after codicil wore discovered  hidden in, ceilings, under floors, in  chimneys and in secret drawers. Tho  relative who rejoiced" to-day, under a  codicil making him rich, was in a  few days' timo thrown into despair  by the discovery of some dirty piece  of papor, perhaps found projecting  from a rat hole in an attic, which  proved to be a later document executed by James Wood, leaving him  nothing. Were theso wills and codicils true or false? It was a question  in which a handwriting expert was  decidedly necessary. Netherclift, the  lithographer, was callod in, and  from the assistance he was able to  render tho puzzled investigators in  tho case he became famous. From  that time he was kept busy.  In not one case out of ten in which  he is consulted--,does the expert in  handwriting appear in court. The  others are compromised or hushed  up. Tho most common occasions on  which he is consulted are matrimonial matters, libelous letters, abusive  and threatening epistles, suspected  signatures to wills, erasures in documents," valentines.  . THE VALENTINE CROP  has, however, been enormously reduced of late years. Not many years  ago the. offensive and anonymous valentine that found its way to tho  handwriting expert's table was vory  common.   Tlie forger._of sigiia_tures_._w*o_rks  either by copying the real signature  by simply writing an imitation of it  as it lies before him, by tracing it,  placing the original signature with  tho document to Wliich the forgery  is to bo attached on, say, a window  pane, going over the signature in  pencil, and thon, covering the mark  with ink,' or by tracing it straight  off with ink. All these methods nre  easily distinguishable by the expert.  One of tho most sonsntionnl pieces  of expert work performed by a handwriting specialist was in connection  with the trial of Christiana Edmunds of Brighton for poisoning a  child, Having bought some sweets,  Edmunds impregnated them with  strychnine, and then, walking out,  distributed thom to various children  she jfnet. One child died and others  had narrow escapc-s.  At the Inquest on the victim it  came out in evidence that a certain  lady, who had not boon identified,  had bought strychnine at a local  chemist's and had signed the name  "Wood" in his register of sales of  poisons. Christiana        Edmunds,  learning that importance was attached; to this signature, actually  wrote a letter to the chemist, which  she signed with the Coroner's name,  and despatched it to the shop by  a boy, requesting him to hand the  bearer the register book for examination.  The book was unsuspectingly handed to tho boy, who carried it to  Edmunds, who tore out what she  believed was tho entry, and then returned the volume by her messenger.  At tiie trial it appeared that Edmunds had, in her terror and confusion, abstracted an entry signed  by another customer named  Wood.  The signature, the letter forged iii  the Coroner's name and letters avowedly written by Edmunds were all  undoubtedly written by the same  person, and the  TRICK  WAS   DISCOVERED.  Edmunds     was  sentenced to     death  Thc number of unonyinous letters  submitted to the expert in a year  is very largo. Sometimes these letters "nre written by the recipients  themselves for certain purposes. An  American expert tells an amusing  story of such a case. The minister  of a certain church one day producod a letter ho had, he alleged, received from another congregation,  offering him a larger salary if he  would trahsfer his ministrations to  thom. To retain him tho congregation raised his stipend, and he refused thc call.  When othor "calls" arrived tho  deacons became suspicious. Tho letters and a sermon in the pastor's  handwriting were submitted to an  expert, and wero emphatically declared by him to have been written  by the same man. The minister  went���������bu't not to. tho congregation  he represented as-being so desirous  to secure him.

" When ho was dead  it was discovered that he had left  property  worth  ������70,000.  Whalloy had a son who lived in  Derby, and who, being his sole relative, naturally expected to inherit  his wealth. Upon his arrival at the  cottage, and searching for a will, he  found a closed envelope among  tho      dead      man's      papers con  taining tlio precious document  When tho envelope was opened  and lho witl read thc son was astounded to find that his father had  willed moro than half his fortune  away from him���������to his landlord and  a third person. The step was extraordinary, as the old man had, frequently told his son that he would  inherit nil that he possessed, and  the young follow immediately denounced the document as a fraud.  But how to  prove  it?  Underneath tho writing of thc will  the expert discovered tho traces  of pencil written words.

But this writing was not that  of the dead man, but of tho landlord  of his lodging! Only the signature-  James Whalloy���������was in ink, und in  the   dying  man's   hand!  The fraud was out. Upon ' his  death bed Whalloy had dictated a  letter to his son, which the landlord  had written in .pencil, Whalloy signing it in ink. When the old man  was dead thc landlord had rubbed  out the pencil writing with crumbs  of bread, had written the will above  Whalloy's signature, had opened thc  envelope in which the real will lay  by- steaming il, and, inserted his  forgery in its place, hgd closed tho  envelope, again, and put it among  tho dead man's papers.

Margery was fond of color, and so  whan Undo Jack.bought her a nice  jacket- for spring it was natural that  he should select a pretty rod, Margery thought sho had never seen anything so lovely, and on the vcry  morning it ca'nie she teased lo wear  it over to grandma's.  "But it is not a pleasant day,"  urged mania, "and if it should rain  you would spoil all the freshness of  your pretty garment." But Margery  could not bear this disappointment,,  and for onco in her life sho was, wo  arc sorry to sny, almost us cross a.s  a littlo girl can bo.  Mnma was grieved, but as slio  sometimes allowed Margery to liave  her way and sutler lho consequences,  sho left it entirely to Margery to 'decide, and made it quite plain, too,  that if any harm came to the jacket  slio would have to bear tho misfortune  without  complaint.  Margery took an umbrella and  started down the street. She did  not feci exactly comfortable, for it  was a rare thi ng to disagree wi tli  mama. She walked along quite  proudly, .however, until-she carno to  the cross-roads; Here sho would have  to pass the Homo of her dearest  friend, who was suro. to run out and  marvel over the gift. ."I want  grandma to see it first," sKe thought,  "so I will-go through tlic field." She  slipped betweon the bars and circled  tho pasture, making across the brook  straight to grandma's demr old house  on the hill.  As slie tripped gaily along she felt  a drop of rain, and opening hcr umbrella, she went bobbing along up  the hill.  Now grandma owned a cow. Sho  was not a vory friendly cow at best,  and she certainly Was very curious.  When she saw tlic bit of bright red  coming across tlic Held, anil half-  concealed by a huge l-.lack thing, shc  threw up her head and made hcr way  toward the object.  Margery, unmindful of the excitement s-Hc was causing, came along,  busy with her thought. Suddenly  she heard a thud! thud! and looking  up, shu saw tlie old red cow, with  head down, bearing toward her. Margery was used to cattle, aiid she did  not wholly lose her presence of mind.  She looked about for some shelter,  and seeing the old pulpit rock, she  ran with all speed, and climbed it  nimbly before the cow "came round  from the other side.  . Margery had thrown hor umbrella  out of her hand when sho clitnMed tho  rock. The wind bore it down the  field, and tho cow, attracted by this  now wonder,  moved away afler it.  Shc did not dare to leave llio rock  and thc rain wa.s now coming down  heavily, and thero were fine drops all  over her new jacket. A more miserable little girl could hardly bo found,  and sh'o began to cry. Sh'o took ofT  hor coat and rolled it, damp as it  was, in a tight bundle, and looked  away toward grandma's house, to  sec if hell) wore in sight.

COLUMN  French      Communists      Overthrew  tho  Vendomo   Column in  1871.  During tho recent disturbances in  St. Petersburg the Government took  speeinl pains to guard, by duy as  well by night, tlle lull column erected  to tlio memory of the Tsar Alexander I., which occupies tlie centre of  the great square in front of the Winter Pulace. And in so doing it was  woll advised. Experience has shown  that revolutionary movements are  usually disastrous to public memorials; that mobs, in other words,  mako war upon marbles even more  readily than upon men, says Fear-  son's Weekly.  Readers of.Motley's "Rise of the  Dutch Republic" will remember how  the people of Antwerp, having determined lo oust their Spanish oppressors, (irst whetted the edges of their  fury by utterly destroying the beautiful statues adorning the interior of  tlieir splendid .cathedral.  -  One of the first of the many outrages committed by the Communists  in 1871 was thc overthrow of the  Vcndomc Column, which is to Faris  what, the Nelson Column is to London.  Nor Was this wanton act merely j  thc unauthorised work of a few irresponsible revolutionists. On the  contrary, it was formally decreed by  the notorious Central Rcvoluntion-  ary Committee; sitting in solemn  conclave at the Hotel de Ville, and  was carried out by a party of  SAPPERS  AND MINERS  attached  to  tho  National  Guard.  Only because of an exceptional spell  of vory wot weather was tiie attempt to blow up the German National Memorial at Rudcsheim, on  September 2Slh, 1883, a failure. If  it had boon a success, thc old Emperor William and most of the other  German sovereigns and princes, including thc present Kaiser, would  havo boen killed. ,  Thoy wore all gathered round at  the unveiling ceremony, in -blissful  ignorance that, concealed beneath  the plinth of the colossal statue,  was enough dynamite to  blow  it and  DINING  WITH  MONKEYS  SILLY   PRANKS  INDULGED  BY SMAHT  SOCIETY.  IN  How   People    With More     Money,  Than Brains  Spend Their  Time.  The exclusive sot of American Society which centres round Mr. Harry  Lehr, a one-time wine agent, and  various of the Vandorbilts, indulges  in all sorts of extraordinary antics.  It was Mr. Lehr who added to the  gaiety of New-port life by starting  lho customs of playing tennis in  bathing suits, having punching bags  provided at the bathing pavilions for  the use of fashionable young ladies,  and taking parrots for companions  when driving his motor-car.  And it was Mr. Lehr, too, who  imitated the actions of a dog for tho  amusement of the guests ut Mr.  Reginald Vanderbilt's wedding a year  ago. This wus a part of the "fun"  which t-ook place on the steamboat  General which conveyed the party  from Newport to the railway landing, where spocial trains were waiting  to  carry them to New  York.  One of the young ladies of this  "exclusive set," seizing the walking  stick belonging to her companion,  threw it at Mr. Lehr, not with any  intention of hurting him, because it  fell ten yards away froni the onetime wine agent, but just to seo  what he would do. Mr. Lehr did, not  disappoint her.  Getting down on all fours, he  crawled to the stick, picked it up  with his mouth, ran back to the  boat-rail and deposited it at the feet  of tho lady who had thrown it. Then  Mr. Lehr, amid roars of laughter aud  clapping of hands, barked in  IMITATION OF A DOG.  Other men followed his example,  and soon the dock was alive with a  number of immaculately dressed millionaires and other wealthy men  crawling  about   on  all  fours.  Among the New Vork smart set,  two or three years ago, freak dinners were much in vogue, when each-  host vied with the othei in extravagance and novelty. Mr. Lehr wa.s  not to be outdone. He had a monkey, and in the monkey's name issued invitations to a sumptuous dinner. Dressed as the host in evening  attire, similar to tho other monk���������  gentlemen, the simian received his  guests who allotted him tho place  of honor and seated themselves at  the  tables  around  him.   .  The smart folk enjoyed themselves  immensely; but the monkey -iidn't.  He wasn't able to say so, but the  disgust on his almost human features plainly told the story of his  feelings.  A little later "tramp" balls were  all the rage. One lady with more.  money than brains inaugurated one.  and other hostesses were not satisfied till they had improved on them.  To   one      "tramp"     ball came     thc  lhem to  smithereens.

A new anaesthetic has been discovered by Dr. Fourncau, a noted  French surgeon, which is known to  science as "Chlorohydrate of Dimo-  thylsmiiic-benzoylpontanol."  In. order not to unduly alarm his  patient. Dr. Foureau has renamed it  "Stovaino."  It is injected into the spinal fluid,  and within five minutes produces  complete anaesthesia in- the body-  below tho point of injection. The patient; however,' does not. lose consciousness, Its effects last ior an  hour and a half, and no unpleasant  results have yet been observed,  though it lias been tried for some  time in more than ono Paris hospital. ,  English doctors arc reluctant to experiment with it. "Once you havo  injected your 'Stovaine' into thu  spine," said a prominent F.R.. C.S.,  of London, "you have no more control' over it, but witli gaseous anaesthetics it is possible to stop tho  administration before tho danger  point is reached. As the quantity  needed of any anaesthetic varies with  tlio individual patient, the importance of this control may be easily  realized.  "In addition, there is ��������� always a  danger of septic poisoning in hypodermic injections, and in this form  of injection���������into tho spinal fluids���������  the consequences would be most  disastrous,-" ; -n j*; r..i "r'lt-qi^ ^^y--*,*" i-i-:? ������  AUt*vVsr'J.n!,' ^A*ff  Items that interest )*ou at this time of the year.

The attention of our readers is directed to an article in anothei- column  announcing the appearance here on  October 2nd of the famous Koyal  Irish Guards'band.  Mayor Brown, accompanied hy his  brother, R. S. Brown, publisher of  Dairy, Ayrshire, Scotland, who i.s at  present here on a visit to Mr. and  Mrs. Brown, made a tour of the  Okanagan last week.  Premier McBride has entered suit  for libel for S10.000 against the Victoria Times, because of certain'statements made in an article published in  that paper concerning him; and also  against the Nanaimo Herald for a like  amount for reproducing said libellous  article.  The Revelstoke Independent Band  have been engaged to play for two  davs at the Dominion Exhibition at  New Westminster this fall.

The Nelson Tribune says: The Revelstoke Herald has published a special  illustrated supplement descriptive of  "the marvelous caverns of theSelkirks  and the story of their discovery." The  caverns are near the main line of the  Canadian Pacific.and distant but a  few miles from that railway's famous  resort, the Glacier House. The Herald  is entitled to credit for attracting  attention to what in time may become  as great a natural attraction for  tourists as is the famous "Mammoth  Cave" of Kentucky.  Mayor Brown returned on Tuesday  night from attending the annual Territorial rifle shoot at Calgary. Mr.  Brown took llth place in the grand  aggregate. Mrs. Brown accompanied  the mayor on his trip.  The C. P.

On Thursday evening, after  leaving the passenger coaches at the  depot, the engine and train crew  started on the return to Three Forks.  The heavy rainstorm about 0 o'clock  made the rails-,slippery and when  barely out of- town the engine .got  up pretty good speed. Engineer Jack  Cadden put on the brakes, but they  had not.the least, effect, .Reversing  the engine and- everything possible  was done to chqck the increasing  speed of the runaway, but all elforts  were without avail.- Old -100 was beyond control and running wild. Some  of the crew jumped before reaching  the safety switch, and luckily escaped  injury. Fireman Arthur [Cockwell  was not so fortunate, On jumping off  he landed on his head, receiving a bad  fracture of the skull, and died a short  ���������time after. Jack Cadden stuck to his  post up to the last moment. The engine  reached the safety switch and ilew up  the grade with a roar. The steep pitch  had no effect. The runaway reached  the end of the rails, struck the hillside,  rolled down the embankment, and lies  upside down in loose earth between  the two tracks. Cadden did not let  go until the engine started to roll over,  and in jumping escaped with a badly  sprained leg. The others were unhurt.  The news spread like wildfire and in a  short time the majority of our citizens  were at the scene of the wreck. Dr.  Gomm attended to the wounds of fire-  maD Cockwell, but it was soon seen  hc~w-ts Beyoh(l"rnetlicaraid; His injuries about the bend were severe. Hemorrhage set in when an effort was made  to remove him and the sufferer  breathed his last about 8.30. Engineer  Cadden rode home on horseback to  Tliree Forks. His injury is not severe  and he will soon be around again. Jack  has been running up the Sandon grude  for about nine years, off and on,  and  this was his flrst wreck. Old 400, it  will be remembered, ran away nearly  two years ago, over the same grade,  but no one was seriously hurt. She is  now a twisted mass, in far worse condition than her previous escapade, but  will doubtless he righted and sent to  the workshop for repairs.���������Sandon  Standard.'
