alias Christopher, who last year e��-
enped fromJailei Giadyat Vancouvei,
is dying this aftei noon as the result ol
a self-inflicted bullet wound in his
head. He tried to kill himself aftei
making a despeiate attempt to escape
"-With five sticks of dynamite, Chestei-
field blew the side out of his cell,, but
^id not do sufficient damage to make
his escape. Then with two levolvers
in his hands he held the officei s at bay

Nevei has such a sensational attempt
at escape been made at the county jail
as occurred at 4 o'clock this morning
Chestei field's young wife, who was
credited with having engineered his
escape from Vancnuiei, is believed by
ithe police to have supplied him with
the dynamite and the iev#lvcrs ""-She
was married to him in the j vil a couple
iof weeks ago." Since then the has been
allowed the freedom of the picimses,

The sunken engine is of the EA

value is approximately, $10,000, and
an estimate has been made that re
pairs not to exceed $2,000 will put the

though reports weie made that Mr

accuracy oMhese 'leports is doubtful
because of the excitement prevailing
at the time. The Great Northern has
spared no pains to. recover the body,

of tho machine will prove the correctness of this theory.

Beets  prcpaicd this way retain tho sweetness uhich is lost, to a great extent,  in boiling.  Young Beets.���������The boots should bo  about tho size of hickory nuts. If  any of tho outer loaves arc ragged  or msty, remove thom, keeping those  that am tender and- whole, Wash  well, taking care not to break tlie  skin of tho bccl-rool, and cook in  boiling water, slightly salted, until  tender. Cut off the leaves-> close to  the roots, diain in a colander, and  chop lino, seasoning vvith buttor,  *alt, pepper, and lemon juice. Set  in a. saucepan of boiling water, to  get vcry hot, whilo you scrape and  trim tho beets.

Have ready tho  beaten yolks of eight eggs, add to  thcm two-thirds of a cup of sugar  and turn into tho milk, stirring constantly for thiee minutes, add, when  cold, a cupful of chopped pineapple  and four tablespoonfuls of lemon  juice.

Blankets aro a difficulty to many  people, mostly because they cannot  mako up their minds as to how  often they should be washed, nor  how thpy sliould be treated. ln  many houses they are only washod  onco a yeai; but somehow tins does  seem rather too i-aro a proceeding.  On tho other hand, it is really not  necessary to havo thom washed more  than twice a j.ear; but they -must  have proper cure in the interval in  tho shape of airing, shaking, etc. A  washing-machine is vcry good for  tho purposo, especially as thoy should  never bo rubbed by tho hand. Tho  water should be only lukewarm, and  a littlo soap well lathoiod in tho  water is all that vvill bc requirod.  Wring tho blankets vory dry through  a wringer, .shake them out, and wash  again in tho same way, v\ringing  ouch tune, until they nic quite clean.  Do not rinse thom, but pull thom I  into shape and hang them out in i  tho sun, which is* a great help to  preserving   a  good  color.  TnE  MIKADO'S  PRECEPTS.

Veal Curry.���������Voal is one of the  moats especially adapted for curries. . Hero is an admirable recipe,  recommended at the Now England  School of Cookery: A slice of veal  half an inch thick, weighing a pound  and a half, is cooked quickly in a  frying pan without any butter. The  surfaco should be quickly seated.  Take out of tho pan and cut in pieces  about    an   mch   and  a half  squat c.

The rind  should be thin, and there should be  no ridges or corners to it; thu larger  the ridges the coar.sc-r the fruit.

In England turkeys aro generally  sold according to tho rulo of weight  per pound, price per pound. Thnt is  to say, if a bud weighs 62 pounds,  it is sold at 24 cents per pound; if  its weight is 14 pounds, at 28 cents  per pound, nnd so on.  Natuially, all breeders endeavor to  make thoir turkeys as plump and  heavy as possible before sending  them to market. Systems of fattening arc extensively carried on among  poultry funncis, turkeys being put  into pens and fattened for a period  varying from threo to ten weeks,  oil her by hnnd or with machines.  The machine mostly usod for this  purposo consists of a brass no'/./do���������  which is inserted in tho mouth of  tho bird���������attached to a piece of  India rubber tubing, and connected  with a cylinder.  In this cylinder is a supply of  liquid food, made of buckwheat or  somo other meal, milk, and a little  fat, and it is so arranged that when  a pedal is pressed by the foot a  portion of tho food, varying according to the stage of fattening���������for it  is���������increased in quantity each day  until tho process is completed���������is injected through the tube and nozzlo  into tho bird's crop.

It is sometimes an accompaniment ot  inflammation of other organs in tho  abdomen or of peritonitis, and then  it is exrecilingly distressing and often  most obstinately resistant to treatment.  The gouty are prone to have hiccough aftor tho slightest mdiscrotion  in diet, tho samo is truo of those  suffering from diabetes, and often tho  subjects of chronic malaria are similarly afflicted. Sometimes hiccoughing is a purely nervous act, ono of  the manifestations of instability of  the nervous system, and is associated  with tho laughing and cryiiig of an  hystencal  attack.  It is generally a vcry easy matter  to stop the hiccoughs, if they do  not cease spontaneously. As it is a  reflex net, anything that makes a  strong irnpiession on the ner\ ous  system oi distiacts lho mind temporal iiy will often put an end to tho  attack.

So long ago ns 1888 rumors began  to bo noised about respecting an invention whorby persona many iniles  apart might? seo'. olio another as  plainly as though "fuco lo fnco."  Tho alleged dlscovory wns tho work  ol a clover electrician mimed Holt,  but though tho world waited anxiously for somo ocular demonsti ation  of tho powois of tho new wonder it  never came, and Mr. Holt and his  mythical invention wero ultimately  forgotten. Soon afterwards other in-  ventois claimed to havo solved tho  problem of "seeing Iiy telephone,"  but, being unable to givo any piactical pi oof, they began to bo lookod  upon ^vith about the samo amount  of scepticism ns tho peionnial "dis-  coveier" of peipotual motion  Recently, however, in tho town of  Poitlund, Oregon, theio has boon  given a domonslintion of "telephonic  visions" which has attiacted the  attention of the entuo scientific  world. It is tho first occasion ou  which a piactical test of such an invention has been clowned with success, and pioves that pictuios may  be sent ovei an electric who as easily  as words. Tho inventor of this "tel-  ephotograph," as it is called, is Mr  J. B Fowler, an electi lcian, who  states that ho has been woi king out  his ideas m connection with it  FOR OVEli FIFTEEN YEARS.  Ho has succeeded in telephoning tho  portrait of au opeiator a distance of  neaily fivo thousand foot, aud ho now  piopliesios that within tho noxt fow  ycais it will bc possiblo for a man  in New York to seo the friend he is  talking to in Chicago (n dislanco of  1,000 milos) us cloaily as though the  two wero stanebng sido by sido And  then, whon this is an accomplished  fact, mid tho telephone wnes have  crossed the Atlantic, London and  New York will not only bo within  speaking distance, but also bo able  to sco ono another.  Tho piesent writer recently had a  conveisation with Mr Fowlor le-  gardmg his wonderful telophotograph  and, though the elcctucian would  not divulge all thc secrets of his invention ho pnited with a few particulars ���������which will be eagerly read. As  yot ho has not applied for a patent,  declaring thnt, until he has perfected his instrument, ho will not share,  oven with tho officials at Washington, all the secrets of his remarkable  invention. '  "It may interest you-.to know,  said tho inventor, "that the origin  of my tolephotogi aph was ., _  - THE RESU^^.-OF A DREAM "..  which camo to mo as far back as  1878 I vvas then w6rking in a factory in Bellane, Ohio, and wo woro  connected with another factoiy in  Wheeling*," "West Virginia, by teler;  phono. In thoso days there wero not  many places that could boast of a  telephone, and folks legaided tho  wondorful invention as something  veiy uncanny Among the "duties  assigned to mo wns that of telephoning down to Wheeling every day, and  tho novelty of speaking to someone  sevcial miles away made a gieat irnpiession on mo I used to dieam of  that telephone at . night, and go  through all tho exertions of 'nnging  up' and 'nnging oil' in my sleep I  behove I oven used to shout 'Halloa1' and 'Aio you there*'' but of this  I  cannot bc  ccitain  "Anyway, ono night I had a parti-  culaily giotesquo dream , I thought  I had invited a party of fuonds to  dinner, promising that afterwards I  would tako them to tho thcatie, but  as theie was no playhouse in Bol-  laire I found myself in a lather embarrassing position, especially whon  ono of tho guests inquired whore tho  thoatiCwas But apparently T took  matters' easily, and, * tolling my  fi iends to follow mo, I led them  into another loom where tho telephono was installed When thoy wero  seated, I rang up the theatre at  Wliceling,_and~asked-thc manager���������to  connect me. Then I fooled round  with a lot of queer-looking discs,  and soon over the wiro camo tho  message, 'All ready, go ahead,' and  on tho wall opposito my guests appeared tho  FIRST SCENE OF A DRAMA.  "Wo heard no words utteiod, but  wo followed tho actions of the play-  eis-with the most intenso liiteiest,  and when the Hist cuitain fell I���������  awoke' Tho dream mado nn indelible  imprssion upon my mind.

Mr. Fowler showed mo the instruments by which ho demonstrated his  ability to seo by telephono ^ Thoy  much resembled any ordinary 'phono  roughly put together, tho tians-  millet being furnished with a camera  lc*is which assisted in cai tying tho  portt ait of the spool or over tlio wire  Tho receiver was in another pait of  tho house, nnd, as tho model built  by Mr Fowlor is a single one, the  poitiait appettis at this end only.

Tlioro had just boen a prosidqntial  election m tho island when ho ai-  rived, involving the deposition of  President J. R. McCoy, who had been  in office for six yeais. Mr. Simons  allows that Mr McCoy had become  "somewhat inflated," in consequence  of his status among tho Advcntists  in America and tho defetenco shown  to him in his travels abroad, but ho  thinks it is not unlikely that ho will  bo ro-electcfl, as he' is "not entirely  without local inflftence "  Descended from the mutineers of  tho Bounty, tho islanders are hardworking, but exhibit vicious tendencies, which religion has not beon able  to eradicate.

In the middle of tho room was quite  a big bed, and in it propped up  among pillows, lay a little girl with  a palo face and shining eyes  "IIow do you do, princess''" said  mother, making a courtesy, and tho  littlo girl's eyes shone  brighter.  "I'm very well, all but a part of  me that's under the bedclothes and  so doesn't matter," said tho littlo  girl m the bed, gaily. She held out  a thin little hand and shook hands  with  mother and Doris  "How kind you were to como Vo  tho jalaco to sco mc!" shc said.

Canada First ha* published some interesting ai tides on the question of  life insurance in Canada. > The point  of these" articles is that Canadians  should insure' iii Canadian companies.  The advice is timely and challenges  effective criticism. Businoss as aiule  does not pause to consider imaginary  lioundary lines, but in life insurance it  is different. Insurance is an invest-  ment in which "the supreme consideration is safety. "Whether gi eater  safety can be secured at liome or in a  foreign country like the United States  is the question which comes home to  every policy holder. In the light of  the exposure of the internal affairs of  the Equitable this question is not diffl  cult to answer. The whole English  speaking world has stood astounded  at the extravagance practiced in the  administration of the company, at the  use of company funds for piivate  speculation, and at the apparent willingness of men of high social and  financial standing to abandon all consideration of honor to satisfy their  speculative craze.  The conditions that were revealed  in the Equitable ate a warning to  every Canadian  who hesitates in the  choice of a home or foreign company  to place his insurance policy. In Canada, at least, the policy-holder can  keep in close touch with the concern  ���������which holds his policy. Once his premiums pass into the hands of a foreign  company they are wholly beyond liis  control and subject only to such loose  protection as a foieign government  may see fit to requiie.  The wi-itei in "Canada First" raises  another important point, and that is  the patriotic obligation resting on a  Canadian to pationize Canadian companies. "The power for good which  the use of their money represents," he  says, "is lodged far away from the  source from which it was drawn, an  unnatural and unwise and unnecessary  condition." There is more in the  principle thus neatly stated than appears at first sight, and it has more  than a sentimental value. But Canadians, fortunately, do not have to  examine principles or analyze abstractions to convince .themselves of the  desirability of placing their money in  the custody of Canadian insuiance  companies. Social, financial nnd political conditions in the United States  are in a state of feverish unrest. No  one can say when or where the lightning may break forth. Canadians  ���������who have no such critical problems to  solve may well hesitate to forego the  safety of Canadian investment for the  instability of securities in the United  States.���������Rossland Miner,  Crow's Nest Pass Coal.  Mr. James McEvoy, geologist for the  C. N. P. Coal Co., last week returned  from Winnipeg where for two weeks  he had been conducting a series of  tests with the Michel coal on the C. P.  R. trains between Winnipeg and  Brandon, says the Fernie Fiee Press.  These tests were taken on the initiative  of theC. P. R., who asked the C.N.P.  Coal Co., to send a representative. The  samples were gathered by the C. P. R.  from their regular supply from the  Michel collieries and evidently considerable pains had been taken to secure  the worst possible samples. One car  was enthely slack which had probably  been filled for the Fernie ovens but in  transit got into the C. P. R. supply.  Other samples were injured by heavy  rains. About a dozen tests were made,  each consuming fiom two to eight  tons. A Free Press repoiter in conversation with Mr. McEvoy learned  some important facts in connection  with these tests. The tests turned  out veiy satisfactorily and fully  sustained the convictions of the coal  company officials as to the superior  quality ot their coal for steaming  purposes. The ordinary evaporative  power of coal in the practical woiking  of locomotives is from six to seven  pounds water evaporated to one pound  coal consumed. The tests conducted  by Mr. McEvoy showed an evaporative power up to 10.0 pounds of water  to one pound of coal consumed. This  is believed to be the best result for any  coal on the continent. The most  interesting test was on the local express between Winnipeg and Brandon  with 20 stops betvteen those points. It  was found that 3,280 pounds of coal  was sufficient to make the trip of 137  miles. The tests were also made on  freight engines, and_th?y showed con-  clusively that the coal was equally as  good for heavy steaming purposes.  One of the advantages of the Crow's  Nest coal over thc Pittsburg article  was the absence of smoke. Our coal  in the process of exposure to air loses  certain of its volatile properties and  during these tests those in charge  noted the almost entire absence of  smoke after the first few puffs weie  over.  Tests of the severest kind were.n.-irle  to make the Michel coal clinker, but  the Crow's Nest fuel stood the test  every time and not a single clinker  was found among the ashes.

The officer who will he in charge of  H. M. Irish Guards band on their  forthcoming visit to the Dominion  fair at New Westminster will be  Lieut. Viscount do Vesci. The Viscount de Vesci descends from thc  great baronial family of De Vesci,  which was in historic eminence in  the time of the early kings, and had  summons to parliament as Barons de  Vesci in l'Jtii. Thc first baronet was  Sir Thomas Vesey who was created  a baronet of Ireland, September 28,  1698, but subsequently taking holy  ordeis was consecrated bishop of  Killaloein 1711. Lieut. Viscount de  Vesci is the second son, although  heir presumptive, of Sir John Robert  William Vesey, who was lieutenant  colonel of the Coldstream Guards,  and of the Honorable Artillery company of London. The Vesey family  have for a century and a half occupied important commands in Britain's  army aud navy.  The Kootenay Fruit Growers  Association Aim at Compelling Honesty in Dealing with  the Public.  ��������� In connectio'n/with'the suggestion  offered in the last issue of the Hebald  regarding the formation in Revelstoke  of a fiuit giowers' association, the  following from the Nelson Daily News  touching on the work of the Kootenay  Fruit Growers' Association at Nelson,  may be useful to those interested in the movement here :  The Kootenay Fruit Growers' Association, -while not yet much more than  a year old, has already fully justified  its existence and the sacrifices of time  it entails upon its members. By its  efforts tlie provincial association has  been induced to hold two meetings j  here, which have been very beneficial  to all the members, and especially to  those whose experience of fruit growing is brief.  The representations of an organized  body have-affectcd -what-the-recjuestf*  of individual growers could never have  done; the Dominion Express Company  has placed a special car on the route  from Kootenay Landing to Winnipeg  to handle shipments of fruit and vege  tables from Nelson and the district.  Organized effort and advertisement  have made known the agricultural  and horticultural possibilities of the  Nelson district in a way that no private effort could have done.  The association's agitation for the  appointment of a resident fruit pest  inspector has not yet been successful,  but it has undoubtedly warned the  public generally of the danger of fruit  pests, and has irnpt essedupon oi cbard-  ists especially a sense of their duties  towards their neighbors.  The members of the association are  not satisfied with having accomplished  so much in so short a time. They aim  at nothing less thnn preserving the  fruit of the district absolutely free  from pests, and they mean to secure,  as far as they possibly can, absolute  honesty in the fruit trade. The public must know on all occasions whose  fruit they are buying and wheie it is  grown.  For the attainment of theso ends it  proposed that at the next meeting of  the association, which will be held in  the city hall next Wednesday afternoon, resolutions shall be adopted,  recommending the addition of the following  to  the regulations under tho  provincial horticultural act: J J$ ]  "That it shall Ke unlawful forany  person, merchant or dealer to receive  any box, crate or other package or  patcel of. fruit, wfych does not bear  the name*of the protlucer and,shipper  and the-locality. wTiere grown," -. ^  .    i   -   ,  i-j<"   ���������:    n   _ 2.

His collar bone  was broken and he was bruised nnd  battered all over. Many men in like  trouble would have laid down to dip.  But Johnson resolved to extricate  himself from his perilous position and  despite the tremendous exertion and  his weakness from loss of blood, he  managed to push away the rocki and  dirt which encumbered him. It, took  two hours of unremitting effort.  "When free ho started to craw] down  the mountain side to Nelson.

"Xo," she said. "I���������I think I  must, have been hulf asleep,'-' and sho  put.  hcr hand to her lips.  "Como iu to supper with mc." he  said; "but wait and rest c littlo  uhile.    Come into  tho palm-house."  "Xo, take me to madam, please,  Royce; bhe may want me. Besides,  there arc so many other persons you  should see to."  ���������'All right," he said, though reluctantly. Never since ho had como  home with h;s wife had he had Renie  to himself for so long a timo, and  he was loath to part with her. But  he took her to the countess, who  stood amid the dpwagers, pairing  them off to the supper-room.  "What a match those two would  have mado!" whispered Lady Balfarras, as Ireno and Royco approached.  "Ves,   but marriages  are  made    in  heaven.   Is it not what they. say?"-'  "Can     I    do   anything,      madam?  Koyce,     take  some-one  to   suppor���������  Lady Balfarras :"  Royce came forward and offered his  arm, and Irene sank into a chair  beside the  countess.  "What is it?" said tho countess  ���������with a quick glance at her.  "Nothing���������nothing," said Irene,  rising again._ "I���������I was only a little tired,  that is  all."  "Vou are soon rested again, then,"  said the countess. "Sit down,  child." She gave Irene her scent  bottle and fan cd hcr. "You are doing too much," she said. "Royce  should not have let you dance so  long."  "Xo���������no, it was I. I mean I liked  it," rejoined Irene, quick, as of old,  to stand up in his defense. "Indeed,  it  was  not his fault; he stopped tho  moment ''  She felt the countess' keen oye  upon her, and stopped and turned  her head away.  The  countess    also     looked    away,  and her bosom rose with a sigh.  "She loves him still," she thought,  niul but for this gypsy, girl " *  Royce led Lady Balfasrras toward  the hall in which tho supper had  been   laid.  "Let    us    go     through    the  palm-  house."  he  said. _ "I haven't seen  it  ' to-night,  though '. everybody   is  talking about it."-  - "Come on, then," said Itoyco, in.  his blunt fashion. Many a tip had  thi.s stately dame bestowed upon  him in his schoolboy days. "They  have certainly made it very pretty.  I fancy it was Irene's doings, principally."  "It is eloquent of her, your brother will have a treasure of a wife,  Royce."  "T���������I   think���������I     mean, aren't    you  rather   premature,   Lady   Balfarras?"  "I merely  repeat  the  common    report.    Which  way  do  wo go?"  "They have made a slight alteration here, to make space for a card  room     Oh,   hero   we  are."  In the good old times, when the  forefathers of whom we arc so proud  gave a ball, .a room, and not a  small one, was always set apart as  a place of refuge to which the elderly and more clumsy could fly for  amusement and solace���������said amusement and solace invariably taking  the form of cards and wine.  In accordance with the good���������or  bad���������old custom, the countess had  set apart a small ante-room for a  similar purpose, and Royce blunderingly led  Lady  Balfarras into  it.  They would have left it in a moment, merely passing through it, but  a spectacle    attracted   the attention  , and__arrested thc^feeWoWioth^of-  them.  At one of the green tables some  men were playing cards. It was not  whist, for there were five of them,  and only ono seemed to be playing.  A heap of sovereigns stood beside  each man's elbow, and one of these  five  was Seymour.  Sow Royce, and for that matter  Lady Balfarras, had heard the virtuous Seymour declaim against card-  playing times out of number. It wa.s  one of his favorite topics. According to him the gambling-table was  tho ante-room to���������a place nover  mentioned  to  ears polite.  And yet here he was amid the  wicked; and not only playing, but  playing with a zest, an awful earnestness, which made Lady Balfarras  turn pale as she beheld him.  His face was pale, almost white,  save for a hectic flush on either  cheek; his eyes shown like glass in  the candle light. One hand covered  his heap of coin, the other rested  like a  bent claw  upon the table.  Uo was an appaling and a hideous  sight.  I'oor Seymour! Pity him, yc charitable: lie had registered a mental  vow not to go near, nor even to  cross the threshold of that card-  room. But champagne���������and pale  pale brandy on top of it���������are very  strong solvents of good resolutions.  The carrying oft of Irene by Royce  had upset him. He had gone to one  of the side tables and helped himself to brandy, and on his way back  to the ball-room had looked in at  thc card-room. Ho had stood in' the  doorway uatching the game of baccarat which some reckless young  gentlemen had ventured to start, and  ���������and swearing that ho would not  join them���������had advanced into the  room step by step, and at lost  found himself seated at the delicious  green tabic.  "Good Heavens!" exclaimed Lady  Balfarras, aghast with horror and  amazement. "Look���������look at your  Brother Seymour!"

Said to Be the Host Extravagant  in Europe.  The most extravagant housekeeping  in Europe is that practised at tho  Czar's Court. Tho sums spent thero  in eating, drinking, and servants arc  simply colossal. The kitchen is  French in all its details, and morc  than one eminent Parisian restaurateur made his first fortune in tho  C/ar's employ boforo he started business at homo. In fact, the heads  of theso household dopaitmonts rapidly become wealthy men.  T'ho kitchen, pantry, and housekeeping arrangements are all under  the charge of the Court Marshal,  Count BenckondorlT, but tho real'  general in command is a Court "forager," as ho is called, onco a chef,  now an official with the rank of colonel, with a Court uniform, a cock-  hat, spurs, sword, etc., whilo his  broast is decorated with stars and  orders. This awe-inspiring individual  must take a special oath of allegiance and fidelity, in view of t'io  risk that he might otherwise ������r-  rango for poisoning his Imperial  master.  In this man's chancery there ore  twelve secretaries and four under  foragers, twenty-four upper lackeys  thirty-four lackeys, eighteen under-  lackcys, and fifty-four lackey assistants. *t tho head of tho kitchen  aro two chefs, each with the salary  of a Cabinet Minister, besides pe\-  quisites. They arc both Frenchmen.  Thoy, in turn, are assisted by fo:ir  under-chefs, thirty-eight ordinary  malo cooks, twenty apprentices; and  thirty-two kitchen boys.  A department in itself i.s the pastrycook's, presided ovor by a chief  baker and two dozen assistants. And  yet tho Czar cats the simplest foo.1,  preferring above all else native  Russian soups like borsch and yu-hi.  Tho collars arc, filled with 23.000  dozens of wine of all sorts. Tho ^zar  himself takes a glass of claret and a  littlo champagne���������nothing more.  Fabulous sums aro spent, on rare  fruits at seasons when they can only  bo forced.

WHAT  COKirrcN* THOUGHT.  At tho present juncture, views on  Russia make interesting reading.  About fifty-six years ago Richuril  Cobden travelled a great d^al in  Russia, and penned the following interesting letter in 1840*  Tt is  not  possible in  a  note  to    do  moro than indicate the grounds of myijn^,   and     also  opinion   the   subject   to   which      yoiirimuch  exposure  SUMMER CARE OF THE COW.  A point in tho summer caro of tho  milch cow that is of vital importanco  and which' is very frequently overlooked is that of keeping lier up to  her normal How of milk. It is nn  oft proved fact that the cow which  is allowed to shrink for want of. sufliciont feed or protection from heat  and Hies cannot bo brought back to  her normal flow when theso adverso  conditions are passed and good feed  nnd favorable conditions aro again  supplied. If sho is allowed to shrink  four or livo pounds per da.V for days  or weeks at a time, good feed may  increase this a pound or two, but it  will not bring it back to the former  mark.  This fact emphasizes the importance of something to supplement tho  scant rasturo in tho summer timo.  It will pay to plant -a littlo early  swept corn, -to bo followed by tho  regular field corn. Often where tliere  is plenty of silo capacity, thero will  be silage left from thc winter feeding. Ihis, if-left undisturbed, will  mold on thc surface, but when pasture gets short this bad layer can  be thrown off and the silage, is ready  I'or use. It is important at this season of the.year that at least 2 inches be removed * o^cry day, as the  warm weather causes a very "rapid  fermentation and sour silage is not a  desirable  feed.*  If it is possible to provide a dark  shed, whoro thc cows may go in the  middle of the day and avoid the sun  and flics, it is a 'most profitable provision. Most dairymen find it desirable to continue the grain ration  throughout tho summer, reducing the  quantity when the grass is flush and  lessening tho proportion of corn and'  other heating feeds.  Most cow owners have something  on the farm which they can feed to,  supplement pasture. The important  thing i.s to do.it. Bo not allow the  cows to shrink, a.s a shrinkage of  two or three pounds a day is not  merely a loss for tho timo" being, but  is very much loss thioughout the remainder of the. season. Mako, your  plans now to prevent this loss. Havo  a patch of corn whore it Is tho least  trouble to get it to tho cows. Every-  onccan at least do this..,  PLANTING CORN.  Having secured good seed from  some'reliable firm who make a specl-  ality'of handling corn, marls "the' land  .out in squares from threo feet six  iinches'.to 'throe foot eight inches apart  and plant from threo. to' live*grains  in overy square."' If planting byfhand  drop the way. tho'land wtis marked  tho first time, so as to drop the  grain exactly "in the crossing^. - Any  ono who h'tis dropped com 6v covered, following th'e way the marker was  last used, will havp noticed that the  tendency is to drop or. tho furiher  side of tho crossing, and in coming  back again the same tendency occurs,  and tho .corn, instead jof being in a  straight lino, will bo "zig-zag, and  form a row fi om, six to ten inches  wide. If using a planter stick il ia  the corner of tho loose earth', always  using thc same corner, say the northwest or the south-west, then when  tho field is finished there will be  straight, narrow rows, whon the corn  comes up,1 that can be easily cultivated. Harrow soon after tho corn  is planted, beforo the corn, sprouts  come up near the top of the ground.  Soon after thc corn is well up, harrow once or twice, using a light harrow or a weeder. When cultivating  only go once in a row, but set the  cultivator not quite".the full width  of th'e row and watch one side,  working close to th'at side of ifio  row, so that when once ovcr, one  and the same side of all th'e rows-  will be well dune. The next time going over thc field, take tho opposite  oirle-of���������the-row-aml-follow-the- -same  rule. As a result," when tho field  hoi been gon.- ovcr twice, th'c rows  are thoroughly dono on both sides,  and oven if flu- field is dirty or weedy  the oome ene ha=������ been accomplished  as if the cultivator had been used  twice on Ihi' same day, and the corn  or any oth������-r crop, is much more  benefited by b^ing gone through and  stirred on two separate davs."** Continue working lhc corn until th'e silk  show's wil and the cars stick out a  littlo. working shallow and using a  shoi ti whifiVtroe.

LIVE STOCK NOTES.-    - -  Most dairymen find that they get  the best results from their cowsi during tho month of June, when they  are pasturing on luxuriant grass. In  'supplying winter food il should be tho  aim to got just as near June conditions .as  possible.  On Sundays and holidays, or at  other times when tho horses are not  at work, thero shoult' be a -reduction  in tbo amount of feed given. Sonic'  horso owners on~the.se occasions! limit  the amount of grain.fed to tako it  away altogether. This is not to be  commended. - A ' slight reduction  should be made in both hay and  grain, and this can bo dono in such  a way lhat tho horse will not realize  it. -      ���������    -  Givo the poultry houses a thorough  cleaning; go into every crack and  crevice for lice, mites" or their eggs;  paint tho'nost boxes and roosts wllh  a Hfluid lice killer of crude petroleum; opon th'o windows and let sunshine and air como into tho hou.so;  drive out all moisture and -dampness;  look out for cold currents of air  through th'e -house; "get tho houses  thoroughly dried out as soon as possible; fry to regain as quickly as-pos-  siblo all that' has ��������� boon lost during  tho long cold winter.  , There can be no question as to tho  advantage of bruising oats and othor  grain for old horses, and for those  whoso chewing -powers are impaired.  Colin, howover, maintains that , in  ordinary cases .the bruising of grain  does not improve its digestibility.  Nevertheless, -we find that, in. tho-experiment from which he crew his conclusions,* the"'period oft mastication  "was. 4J- pet* cent, longer aud the  amount" of-saliva .secreted, was seven-:  teen per cent. ' greater' with" bruised  oats than with wholo oats/ .'I have  found, especially " in training race,  horses, that horses do bettor on tho  former than on the latter food. I  feel strengthened in this conclusion  by tho fact that, when 'such animals'  are fed on bruised oats, less husk-is  found in their dung than when thoy  arc given wholo oats.

India where it is  visiblo it is from sixty to more than  100 miles away and so nearly surrounded by othor mountains that  only the top of it is in view. Many  mountains nearer to the observor  appear to bo much higher.  No point in India or in Nepal is  known whero thoi mountain can be  seen in all its glory. The man to  whom Mount Everest is revealod  must stand on thc north or tha  northeast sido of it in the part oi  Tibet which no explorer ever saw till  Col. Younghusband anil his British  mission entered il in the summer of  1903.  Beforo Younghusband led his small  army to tho forbidden city of Lhasa  Inst year ho forced his way north  into Tibet and spent four months at  Khamba Jong waiting for tho representatives of the Grand Lama to  meet him and talk over thoir difficulties. .  Tho mountain mass of- Everest  stands high enough abovo all othcr.  parts of the range of tho Himalayas  111 which it is situated to be distinguished from the' rest of the  rango as, ono mountain with several  summits, the two highest of which  guard tho ends of this culminating  block of tho earth. The lower part  of tho mountain is concealed by tho  vory high lange in front of it, but  more than half of Everest is revealed, enough to show tho grandeur of  THIS CROWNING EMINENCE.  Tho British expedition to Lhasa  was too far east of Everest to see  it, but Col. Younghusband has  brought home a vcry vivid impression of tho glory of that spectacle  that for four summer months was,  constantly boforo him.  "Every day ancl every hour," he  writes, "we enjoyed tho charming .  summer climate,'and above all, the  unrivaled panorama of the mighty  Himalayas at tihe culminating* point  of their grandeur where Mount, Everest was majestically arrayed bo- ,  foro us. '       . 1  '   "As  I  looked  out  of my  tent    in   ,  tho .early morning,  whilo all     bolow  was still  wrapped in  a  sloely gray,  far  away- in  the' distance tho'   first  streaks  of dawo - would, be just gild-"  ing  the-snowy,,, summits of., Everest,  poised high in-heaven  as tho'.spot-   -  less, pinna'clo  pt' the .world., By   degrees ��������� the   'wholo^- great snowy", range  would- be illuminated and 'shine^  out' [  in dazzling, uhsullicd''whitcncss.'J7*     '   v  "Then through all- the day .it  would bo buried iii'ovcr varying hues  of bluo arid purplo till the." sotting  sun clothed all in'a final intensity of ,  glory, and left* one ^hungering' for  daylight.to appear again."-  No one   has   ever been stirred    to  .  such ,' 6nthusiasm '.by what "fhe'   has;  soon of Mount'Everest from the side]  *  o"f   India ,and    Nepal.

"From this placo Mount Everest is  an insignificant point 'just visiblo in    ,  a gap of tho main range."  Hundreds of tourists go by rail-  to Darjiling for a sight of-thc vcry  top of tho earth, and they are always disappointed. The first thing;  they seo whon lhoy get off tho train;  is Makalu, towering majestically  abovo tho valley of .the Arun, with  nothing to veil its grnn'd sweep sky--  ward; and away oil many miles beyond this stupendous .height, whose  head is in. tho clouds  27,800 FEET ABOVE THE SEA,  is-an inconspicuous and modest summit    just showing  its  head     among  other     mountains    that almost* encircle it.  -���������Visitors-can- scarcely���������boliovo���������that^-^  that i.s Mount Everest,  whose   name-  all   the  world  knows;  but  who  evor  heard of Makalu*?  "Woll," remarked ono tourist, "if '  this mountain you call Makalu isn't  Mount Everest, . it ought to bo;"-  which only illustrates again that  real downright superiority does not  always attract so much attention as  something or somebody built on a -  smaller  plan.  When tho British left Lhasa on  thoir march back to India, Capt.  Rowlings and a party wero detached  from tho main body to travel almost  duo westward - through the mountainous part of Tibet. Thoy camo.  out at Simla on Dec. 24 last, and,  tho most important information they  brought was that no mountain nearly so high as' Everest was to be  found to the north of it.  Thero has been a mere chance that  something higher might be hidden in  the unexplored wilds which Raw-lings   '  has   revealed.    There  is  scarcely      a.  possibility  now  that, the distinction:  Mount    Everest   wears ' wi ll r ever    bo  taken from it. ...  ,  Tho party   of expert   mountaineers  from England,  Austria and Switzerland who sot out three yoais.ago to, "'  climb     Mount   Everest  never     came    ---  within many miles of the base of the    .  mountain   and   gave' up. the    undertaking.   It  is  vcry  difficult  to     approach this part of the higher Himalayas on  account  of the unfriendliness both of nature'and of man.  It is  likely that the  next attempt  will bc made from thn norlh or Tibetan side of the lange. , -^   *���������   CHINESE EMPEROR'S TEA.

One of the fads of tho  season is a gown of all-over Valenciennes, or chiffon, with Valenciennes  flounces nnd cntrcdeux, and a coat of  Irish Inco.  Princesso slips of soft silk can now  bo obtained ready made, which is a  great boon to thoso who like to"wear  dilferent colored linings under their  summer muslins. .

Most of them  aro still called dressing gowns or  lounging robes, but they aro too  elaborate and beautiful to bo always  relegated  to the bedroom.  All gowns of lace arc fashionable  this year, the Lierre lace, tho Mal-  ines lace, tho ^allover Valenciennes,  tho Trish point, and so^on, indefinitely through a long list of names that  were never known beforo, as well as  tho names that aro well known to  all laco lovers.  retttcoats aro as simple or as elaborate as ono may prefer.

Most of the separate coats arc  in plain tailored styles, with colored  velvet collars. ,  The sifiartest skirts are thoso that  have a good sweep around tho foot.  The hair length tram in the fine mus-  ��������� lins and laco gowns is necessary, but  in all tho heavier qualities, such as  linen, the short skirt is a necessity.  The pleated skirt is the favorite for  the moment, but it ie too universally  made up in e^ory kind of material  to have it rank among the smartest  models of the season.  Thc silk skirts are in various designs. The newest seems to be that  with the jersey top, which fits close  to the figure, and does not run the  risk of splitting. Many of the petticoats havo flounces .pt fiyo 'or six  " two-inch"frills������of "bins silk or ribbon,  Bcnntly" gathered ' and joined one be_  low the other.

Nearly, all tho new  silk petticoats - withjfa'deep fi ounco  havo a cord placod under the frill to  provide the necessary ^stiffness. For  summer wear these aro made in very  soft makes of taffetas and somo"  dainty light chines, very pale shades  boing a good deal worn.  Practically all sleeves are short,  cither elbow-length or, terminating  several inches above-tho wrist. Many  vailcties of lawn and lace under-  slcevcs aro sold to wear with' these  short sleeves, and one may be as  extravagant as sho chooses m the  matter of these dainty accessories.

Evo was not tho only woman whose  curiosity influenced her entire future.  Woman likes to be called a-bnd  until shc suddenly rcmembeis that  parrots .are  birds.  In the Garden of Memory thero are  moie forget-me-nots than any. other  flowers. i  He who advertises for a wife may  get-what he advertised for, but ho  seldom gets what he wanted.  When a woman begins to feel happy sho begins to bo miseiable for  fear that such happiness is too pei-  fect  to   last.  A good method of'having your own  way, if vou arc a mariied man, is to  find out your wife's opinion, and  then agree with hor.  About tho, most, convincing proof  of man's superiority over woman in  common-sense is evidenced by the  fact that hardly any of hi.s clothes  button at tho back.   y   PERSONALLY  CONDUCTED  TOUR  -  To ' California    and      Lewis     and  Clarke Exposition, JPort-  land,  Oregon."

Experts-Would_   Have the   British  Ready at Any Moment.  ���������At. tho^HoyaL-United_Service_Insti-  tution-at /London' last week Lord  Ellcnborough, retired commander"R.  tS.., read a paper oh tho" possibility  of England's fleets and harbors being  surprised.  Admiral Togo's attacks upon Port  Arthur, hc said, furnished a lesson  to Portsmouth and Portland. If  simultaneous attempts to sink English battleships���������tho positions of  which wore shown on charts that  could bo bought for a few pence���������and  to block harbors wero successful, the  enemy migljt thon be able to protect  his transports from torpedo attacks  and so reinforce an invading arriiy.  The doctrine of mare clausum  would have to be partially revived  for the next naval war, and the  three-mile limit extended to the enemy's  shores.  England was in far greater danger  of attack when all of her fleets were  assembled at Spithcad for a naval  review than on any othcr occasion,  he added.  Lord. Ellenborough advocated that  all." of the forts that protect naval  anchorages should bc constantly kept  on,a war footing, ready to open fro,  that a"Vpost - "captain should be- 'on  duty night and day'at the' Admiralty ,-��������� and - that no pilots except f hot>c  British born should ever bc allowed  to exercise their profession on England's coasts.
