About 20 minutes past one  o'clock fiie broke out in the boiler  room of the mill. The flames spread  so rapidly lhat it soon became evident  the mill was doomed. A telephone  message was at once sent to the city  for help which was readily responded  to. No. 2 Fire Brigade was called out  and, under the diiections of Chief  Foote, a large supply of buckets was  quickly" secured and rushed to the  scene of the conflagration' by the.C.  P. It. yard engine. But for the timely  arrival of this party on the ground the  huge piles of lumber in the yaid,  worth thousands' of, dollars, would  als>o have been destroyed. The Big  I'Eddy mills .were consideied to comprise one of the best plants in the  disti ict and the loss to the Company  is considerable, besides 'being the  means of throwihg^a, hundred men  temporarily out of employment.

Bogle's intelligent  leview of the subject in the Winnipeg  Free Press. He knows something ,pf  the district, and he is not in the least  discouraged because things have been  quiet for the last three years. ; He regards this as the natural reaction after  seven years of feverish activity".* ,He  is only surpiised that so much permanent work has been done in ten yeais.  This is the tiue insight of an'pbservei  who looks below the smface. a Theie  iiiay be>feWi<peopled������ -the JSlocan-^and  the Lardeaiii-butSifrthe peoplerhave  gone away,*the mineral is still theie.  Counter attractions have always been  the means" of breaking, up - western  communities, but they come" back to  anything that is permanent. Then  there were practical difficulties to be  overcome and problems to be solved.  They are all on the way to settlement.  Ohe.ip treatment of low-grade copper  ores, abundance of fuel, recovery of  low values and by-products, utilization  of zinc blende���������all these are now accomplished. In the natural order of  things, as the facts become known to  the outside investor, capital will again  flow into the country for steady mining, not for wild:catting. The second  stage in_ the evolution of a mining  country has been leached, and we aie  of those who aie convinced that "the  tide has turned," and from now on  mining conditions throughout" the  Kootenay will improve and local  smelters will be kept busy.

It is the same with new districts, of  which Kootenay is one, and it is just  getting its second wind.���������Nelson  Tribune.

Mr. Alexander returned to the property early  in the week. The pipe for conveying  air into-the.tunnels is now on the  ground and being put into position.  Work on the Triune is proceeding  steadily. A full force of men are employed. - E.Vipond brings down from  the miue'to the wharf about 3 1-2 tons  of ore daily. In the lower tunnel they  are now about, under the ore and they  expect to be among it at every shot.  Snow is fast disappeaiing from Triune  basin.  Arthur Evans and Harry Jones are  leaving to do some development o,n  their '-property on the Aim. The  claims are within a short distance of  Beaton, and the surface showings are  extremely, rich. Being so near tiaus-  poi Cation the property should prove a  most valuable one. . A tunnel will be  driven to get under thc rich showings.  ���������Lardeau Mining Review.;'  a  attractive a spot^ os I "liave seen in  British   Columbia,"-''says   -Honor   L.

It is  in a delightful and charming locality  and its people have opportunities  before them which they do not yet  realize.  " Why, as yet, all this province is  almost an unsettled region. But a  nai row fringe along the line of railroads, is settled and, when we  conbider-the���������resources���������und-develop-  nient, it must be acknowledged nothing has been dono. Only the necessities of the pioneers are being met.  But the beginning is hero now of  wider and larger things und growth  and development are showing the  work, done.  " I am glad to find upon this, my  first visit to Revelstoke, so many  enterprising, progressive and sacrificing public-spiiited residents who  are interested in and earnestly laboring for their city's prosperity and  growth.

London, July 12.���������Field Marshall  Lord: Roberts created a sensation in  the House of Loids Monday evening,  when in a lengthy and well considered  speech he delibeiately expressed his  opinion as a piactical soldier that the  military force of Great Britain was  inadequate, imperfectly trained and  totally unfit to uphold Great Britain  as a first-class power. Lord Robert*;  did not blame the government, which  he said was actuated by a national  feeling, but he scathingly attacked the  people of- England, who he said showed no national feeling towards the  military until danger arose.  The speech was made in connection  with a motion introduced by the Earl  of Wemyss and March (Conservative)  traversing Premier Balfour's state  ment regarding the 'impossibility of  the invasion of Gieat Biitain and  urging the necessity of keeping up  sufficient land forces to repel any  possible invasion. '  Lord Roberts said tho lessons of the  South Aiiican war liad been forgotten,  and the armed forces of Gieat Britain  were now as unpiepated for war as  when the South Afric.m'tiouble broke  out. Hc declared emphatically that  "the choice lay between conscription  or some practical system of universal  training.'and that only by such meai.s  would it be possible for Great Britain  to possess, armed forces organize'd arid  trained to meet the demands 'of .the  empire in the event of a war. ^    '  HisLordship said that any discus-  sion'^-of Great .Britain s niilitaiy  position within*'the limits, of.

The discussion of the motion continued for some time, the speakers  complimenting Lord Roberts for the  stand he had taken.  Lord Lansdowne, the foreign minister, defended Premier Balfour. He  said that Mr. Balfour never had maintained that the defence of the country  depended solely on the navy.

Cardiff, Wales, July :11.��������� An ex-  olosion of firedamp in N'o. 2 pit of the  International Coal Company's mines  ���������oday is believed to have resulted in  :he loss of at least 126 lives.  The first indication of the explosion  wfts a loud report, immediately followed by the belching of clouds of  ,moke and dust from the pit shaft, in  which 150 men were working. The  force of the explosion wrecked the  machinery at the mouth of the pit.  AU communication with the doomed  men in this direction is completely  severed. No. 1 shaft, .adjoining, has  ordinarily afforded communication  with No. 2. The SOO hundred men in  N'o. 1 and the few who escaped from  No. 2 were drawn up.  .  A rescue party descended, but its  woik was seriously impeded by the  foul airlind fulling masses of eaith  -lislodged by the explosion.  Altogethei 08 bodies have been recovered. Efforts have been made for  hours to reach the entombed men, but  Lite to-uight tbe absence of all sound  fiom the interior of the mine told the  tale of tbe worst ..disaster that has  taken place in South Wales "since  1891.  Efforts at rescue were still in progress  .it midnight, and currents of fresh air  were being'driven tlfiough the shaft  but the rescuers are now working  without hope of reducing the list of  fat.ilities.7 ' .. .,  Hope, of rescuing^the' entombed  miners** has been abandoned.

NEW POINT  OF INTEREST  Riverside Park, on the River,  Teh Miles Below Revelstoke,  Opened Up���������Delightful Spot  for Picnics and Outings  Yesterday  the Revelstoke Navigation Co. ran an excursion  per _S. S.  Revelstoke to the new park located by  the-ompany recerttly at a point' ten  miles below Revelstoke. on  the west  'side of the Columbia river.    About 75  people took advantage of the "Wednesday afternoon half holiday to'enjoy a  siil on the river.    The park is on a  large island comprising several Hundred acres of level land,   dotted  w ith  shade  trees  and   having no   undergrowth."  There is'ample room in the  cleared spaces for lacrosse .and baseball fields, and an arm of the-river'on  the west affords good boating.    The  scenery at this point is beautiful and  a more delightful spot'for picnics and  holding of athletic sports could not be  found in the province.     .'     ���������:'**-  It is the intention of the company  to have certain improvements made  at an early date, including the erection of a pavilion, and to run excur-  s'ons fiom Revelstoke and Arrowhead  to the park, and ai range a big programme of athletic sports there""in'  September,  ation, and would, lie hoped, be able to  woik out the problem to thu satisfaction of everyone.  Tho government decided not to  oppose the motion of tho Eail of  Wemyss ' and March, which was  passed without division.  Orangemen at St. Andrews  Local Orangcmen*to the number of  about forty, in full legal ia, attended  the annual church service Sunday  evening in memory of King AVilliam  III. and the anniversary of the battle  of the Boyne. The services were held  in St. Andrew's' church, where a  special sermon was delivered by Rev.  W. C. Calder. The altar rail and  pulpit weie prettily decorated with  British flags and flowers, among which  was a handsome boquet of Orange  lillies. The choir had prepaiod special  music for the evening, which was  excellently,rendered, and the young  Indies of the choir each wore an  Orange lily. Mr. W. H. Humphreys  rendered a solo entitled "Light and  Darkness," in his usual splendid voice.  Rev. Mr. Calder took as '.'his text,  Hebrew IV., 12: "For the word of  God is powerful a id sharper than any  two-edged sword, piercing even to the  dividing asunder of soul and spirit  and joints and marrow, and is a dis-  cerner of the thought and intents of  the heart." From the above text the  reverend gentleman gave one pf the  most eloquent addresses ever delivered  from a pulpit in this district. In our  next issue a full synopsis of the address will be published.      -i..v  *Brakemen';Fight,With- Hobos;-)  ^\ About five o'clock, yesterday morning at Golden the braketnen of a west-  &      i  bound freight in charge of engineer  J." Gould and conductor Bruce, had  .in exciting time with two hobos who  were stealing a tide. In order to ride  more at ease the tramps had broken  into two street cars wliich were being  taken through to the Coast. At  Glenogle, a small station a few miles  east of Golden, brakeman T. Lawrence  and his mate ordered the tramps off  the train. They refused to go and the  train proceeded on its way to Golden,  where the brakemen again ordered  the tramps off. Again they refused,  suggesting to the "brakemen to come  and make them, threatening at the  same time to shoot, them.  Law rence and his mate peeled their  coats and went after them. The tramps  both wore cartridge belts filled with  shells. ; Lawrence tore' a belt from one  of.the. tramps_and  used   it  to   good  advantage over their heads~so much  so that they;were forced to: leave the  cars. Just as they were leaving one  of them pulled a revolver and shot at  Lawrence, but fortunately missed his  mark. They then made off. Const.  Aston, Provincial police officer; resident at Golden, was at once informed  of the affray and together with a few  residents of that burg instituted a  search, finally locating the miscreants  in the Queen's hotel ice house. The  tramps are now safely lodged in (he  Golden gaol and no doubt will be  severely dealt with.  Home of Big Game  Harry V.

She swept out of thc office, leaving  both partners staring blankly at tho  door which had closed so softly behind her.  "Crump, that's a remarkable girl."  drawled the .senior purtner, whoso  twenty-seven years hung lightly upon  him. lie lit'a cigarette and fixod  his eyes on tho coils of blue smoko  rising slowly to tho ceiling. "A  pretty girl and clevor, too, ch.  Crump? Divinely protty, to my way  of thinking."   f  "'She's certainly good-looking,"  acquiesced thc junior partner as he  shuffled across to his desk and  climbed the high stool. A moment  more and the scratching of his pen  betrayed the fact that he had plunged into his work again.  Nathaniel Crump, tho junior partner, was sixty years of ago. Forty  years before the firm of Bastow and  Crump, music publishers, hart been  founded, and with Rastow's brains  and all the money Crump possessed  had grown into a paying- concern.  Bastow had been a man of power  and energy, and, practically speaking, he hnd been the firm; Crump  was thankful to bc merely a necessary attribute, and content with his  one-fifth share of tho profits. When  Bastow died his son stepped into  his shoes, though a youngster fresh  from school, while brow-beaten old  Crump plodded away at his ledgers,  and at times even forgot that he was  a partner in the firm.  Presently George Bastow walked  across to his partner's desk.  "I sacked Lemming yesterday," ho  said. "We can't afford to pay  moro clerks than we want."  The junior partner's pen. ceased its  scratching, and the owner lookod up  open-mouthed.  "Sacked Lemming?" he repeated.  ���������"But he's boon with us eighteen  years and worked well.'-'  "The truth is. Crump, the firm Is  going to the dogs and .we've got to  save money somehow. We havo been  going downhill ever since pater died,  you're a plodding old horse. Crump,  but you've no brains. Ami as for  me���������well, I just hate the business."  "We have certainly been unlucky  with our music lately," agreed the  junior partner.  "Sensible remark that,"- sneered  Bastow. "And; you~with your forty  years of experience cannot get the  firm  out of the mess, eh?"-  "But these little pieces of Miss  Bane's have gone rather well," replied  Crump,  ignoring the sarcasm.  "A mere drop in the ocean. But,  as I said a moment ago, Miss Dane  is clever���������cleucedly clever. Still, it  will take some time for her -music  to mature, and in the meantime.  Crump, we shall break." <  Several weeks passed and the firm  of Bastow and Crump remained in  the same torpid state. From morning iill night tho junior partner  toiled at his desk, making fresh  work for himself in tbo ledgers when  the day's business failed to provide  him with any, and working out impossible schemes in his head for saving the firm.;, ;  Occasionally the day was broken  by a visit from Nella Dane, and  these visits seemed like oases in the  desert of his monotony. At her  coming, he would slide from his stool  and place a chair for her; thon, if  Bastow was away from the office, as  he often was for days together, ho  would talk to her or play his Cremona, the only treasure ho possessed.  Such days passed all too quickly,  and he found himself looking forward for her next visit with such  anxiety that ho was astonished nt  himself. The soft flow of her voice, the  curve of her lips, returned to him  even in his dreams. And so the bare  truth came to "him���������he loved  her!  For      a      fortnight       sho had  not     been     near     the     office,    and  tho      senior      partner        had      boon  ho felt himself grasping tlie littlo  gloved hand tremblingly in his own.  Crump waited tiff their deadened  footsteps died away on tho paved  corridor, then he climed up to his  desk again and bent his head lower  than usual over his books.  II.:  asked  shade  you.  Tho senior partner wns clearly in  tho worst of tempers. Tliree months  had passed, and now, as ho bounced  into theollico and tore open his letters savagely, it was evident that  something was amiss.  "Crump!" hu roared, liko a mad  bull. "Stop that infernal pen-  scratching. What's thc good of protending you'ro busy when you know  tho firm hasn't earned a ten-pound  note for n couple'of months?  The junior partner carefully blot-  tod tho last figuro ho had made and  laid down his pen.  "X met Simpson yesterday," said  Bastow, in a quieter voico, "and ho  told mo in confidence that his firm  were going to sue us for that four  hundred pounds. To make matters  worse hero is thoir letter this morning: 'Unless tho sum of four hundred pounds  owing to us  is paid in  threo      days '  Oh, you know     tho  usual  sort  of thing;  it  is  no     good  reading tho letter through."  "What are wo going to do?"  tho junior partner, his face a  paler than usual.  "Do? That's just What I ask  If you  don't think  of  something wo  smash,  that's    the long  and     short  of it."  "And what then?"  ���������"Starvation    for   myself arid Nella  until I get another job."  "You mean, that she will starve?"  repeated the junior partner.

The girl camo across and laid lior  band on the junior partner's arm'.  Already her eyes, sharper thnn her  husband's, had read what lay beneath the surface, and she looked up  mutely into his face.  "Aren't you  going to congratulate  us?"  she  asked,  presently.  Her words  stung him into  life.  "Of  course I  am.   I  cannot    think  why I forgot.

The junior partner shrank hack info the shadow, his oyos fixed upon  the fingers of the player, and the  instrument player! ns be could novor  ploy it. Then, a.s Lord Craybrook  laid the instrument down, he advanced a few steps haltingly, os if  afraid by his movements of breaking  the lingering echoes.  "What���������what is that time?" he  whispered, hoarsely. "Jt is superb. I  think I know the works of tin; great  masters, and yet I do not recognise  it."  Then,   to   his   astonishment,     Lord  Craybrook     leapt    fo   bis  side     and  : forced him  into  a chair.  "You aro a comparative stranger  to mo," hc said, quickly.

So lono ago as the reign of Louis  tho Eleventh, a certain Oliver Daim  sot up a barber's shop in Varis on a  scale of magnificence that up till then  had been undreamt of, and soon drew  thither everybody who was anybody  in the French capital.  RAZOR FOU FAC1I DAY.  Even the King himself condescended  to become one of his regular clients;  first stipulating, however, that ho  was to be shaved with a special gold-  handled razor. The complaisant  Daim laid in not one razor only, but  305, one for each day in the year,  and on each and every golden handle  was tho Koyal cypher in brilliants.  So pleased was the vain king at this  mark of respect that hc made tho  wily barber one of his Privy Councillors, besides granting him a life pension of about ������6,000 por annum.  But Daim's head was not turned by  his success. lie personally attended  to his hair-dressing saloon in the  mornings and evenings, devoting t.he  afternoon to allairs of Slate, and in  a few years became enormously  wealthy.  At tho height of his prosperity he  is said to have employed ho fewer  thnn 400 assistants, all of whom  wore suits of puro whito raiment of  tho finest texture. Theso wero changed thrice daily af a great cost; while  tho gold and silver fittings and utensils of his seven establishments, were  estimated to bo Worth ������625,000.  FORTUNE FROM SHAVES.  Then there is the caso of tho lato  Sir Richard Arkwright, who laid  the foundation of his enormous fortuno in a collar at Preston, whoro  ho shaved customers at a ' penny a  time. Until ho started business the  regular charge hnd always bcon four  cents, and the thirty Lancashire operatives were not slow in appreciating the reduction. Consequently ho  did an enormous business.  His competitors in the place, foreseeing ruin, wero also compelled to  lower their prices; whereupon Arkwright promptly cut his charge for  a shave to one cent, thereby continuing his monopoly, although, of  course, greatly reducing his ��������� not  gains. Indeed, lt is somewhat dim-  cult to seo how hc managed to make'  any profit nt all under the circumstances. Yet that ho did so is certain; and hc was not tho only one.  . A Glasgow barber named Falconer,  who charged tho samo small sum for  a like service, died vory well off indeed, aftor giving away large sums  in charity. ITe also, by-the-wny, was  petitioned by his fellow barbers to  raise his price. His answer was characteristic: "Charge a penny? Why I  nm just now considering tho advisability of lowering it to a farthing."  This throat ho did not carry out.  Indeed, it was probably only a bit  of bluff. But hc would never tako  moro than a cent, though it was offered  him.  His shop, during tho latter years  of his life, became tho arena for  much local political discussion, and  was nick-named tho "Carlton House  of Parliament."- It was furnished  rather   liko  a  G ENTLEM A N 'S   DR A WING-ROOM  than a barber's shaving saloon, with  .Valuable-an ti(|uc-furni ture ,-many-line  pictures,  and a musical clock.

Thieves who find themselves caught  "with tho goods on thom" liavo  moro than onco o&cnpod the Juut reward of their ovil doeds by swallowing tho very ovidenco which would  havo told most forcibly against them  at tho trial. That this Is a fact,  and not an uncommon" fact cither,  was proved to tho writer recently by  a detective who hns made a great  number of "sensational ��������� captures during the fifteen years ho has beon connected with  tho forco.  "Not onco or twice, but many  times," said this man, "hovo pris- .  oners escaped conviction by swallowing their ill-gotten goods, and wlien,  ns is usually tho case, their actions  have not been noticed it is.extremely  diflleult to bring the thefts homo to  tham.  "Some twelve months ngo a young  man entered a jeweller's and asked  to be shown sonic diamond rings. A  fine selection was placed before him,  and whilo the attendant wns otherwise engaged the customer managed  to convey a fine diamond ring to his  niouth", and thon proceeded to swallow it. But tho feat was moro difficult than.ho hnd anticipated; the  piece of jewellery stuck in his throat  nnd ho began to turn  BLACK IN THE FACE.  The attendant, not knowing thc  causo of his distress, turned him on  ���������his face and shook him. After a  moment tho man, who was rapidly  losing consciousness, managed by a  supremo effort to cough up tho ring,  and it fell upon th'o floor.- The ingenious young man was thereupon  held in' custody until a policeman  was summoned and speedily conveyed to the nearest station, trh'cre ho  was charged with' attempted theft.  "One of the most curious instances  of a prisoner trying to escape conviction by swallowing his ovidenco  occurred recently in n -pool-room  which was raided by th'e police.  Among the prisoners captured was a,  young man taken literally 'with the  goods on liim' in thc form of half-a-  dozen small racing slips. These ho  hurriedly crammed into his pocket,  but during tho trip to thc police-station ho manngcicl to convey them to  his mouth', and was busy masticating thom preparatory to digestion  when h'o was detected, and the ��������� remainder of th'e slips-were rescued.  "VALUABLE STUDS  form favorite food for tlie professional jewcl-swallower, for they are easy  to 'bolt,' and, indoed, slip down as  easily as a pill. It is extremely difficult to detect tlicsc stud-swallow-  ors, for th'ey are so expert ami work .*  with such amazing celerity that no  shopman is ever ablo to swear. that  ho saw the prisoner put his hand to  liis mouth. Nevertheless, wc have  caught one or two of these gentlemen recently, and so the trick is not  so popular as it used to. be.  "A case of tho kind occurred about  ten months ngo, and tho thief who  attempted tho stud-swallowing act  is now consuming loss costly fare at  the Government's expense. The caso  was not without interest, and took  I.laco in ono of tlio biggest jewellery  stores in the world,'  "It appears that a stylish-looking  individual called in the jewellery  shop in question antl nsked to bo  shown some single stiwls���������-diamonds  j referred.

"It  does not matter; why should it?"  .- And sho sighed; then, as Madgo stared at hor, she colored and forced a  laugh. "If I must put ono on, I  will try thc mauve," she said. "Liko  you, Madga doar, I want something  very simple; and it is the plainest  I think."  She put it on, and decided at once  ^that   it    would   de.

"It is a good thing we arc not  either of us inclined to be vain,"  said Irene, with a smilo. "Tako it  off,  Marion."  "Yes,  Miss.   One   moment.      There  ought to bo a ribbon here,  but I do  not seo  it.   What  a pity!    Oh,  wait.  Miss,      do   please!"  sho   ran on.    "I  saw     a piece   just    the     same color  among Mrs. Landon's things.   It was  in the imperial when I unpacked it."  She ran to a drawer at the bottom  of  the   wardrobe,   and -turned     over  tho things;  and the two  girls   stood  bosido her iu thoir finery ioolting on.  "What is  that, Madge, dear?"  and  Irono   pointed     to  the  small     papor  parcel which Royco had noticed when  Madgo was packing up  in London.  Madge  blushed.  .    '"I'will show "you," "she said in    a  low voice.  "It is not here, madam; I think I  must havo taken it to my room with  somo other things of the sort. I'll  run  and  sco,"   said  Marion.  As  soon  as  she had  loft  tho room  Madgo took up tho parcel, held it in  hcr  hnnd    for  a  moment,   thon     cut  tho string and broke tho wax seal.  'See,"    sho  said'in  a  low     voice  and near; there had not boon such a  gathering of the county families and  resident,  gentry   for  years.  Madgo, as Marion dressed her,  tried to remember the names of  some of tho peoplo Irene had told  her about; but sho felt confused and  bewildered, for sho know that tho  wholo affair would prove a fresh ordeal   for  hor.  Irene had taught her ono or two  square dances, and thc now wait*/.,  and had beon astonished at Madge's  quickness and aptitude. Sho assured her that she would dance ns well  as nny 0110 in tho room; too well,  indeed, for most of tho young country squires, who woro moro at homo  in' tho hunting field than tho ballroom. But Madgo was doubtful. A  mistake which one of thoir own people might.make would pass unnoticed, whereas she know any blunder on  her part would attract attention,  and  be the subject of remark.  "Nearly ready, Madgo?" said  Royce, from tho adjoining room.  "May  I como  in?"  ITo stood still as ho entered, and  gazed at her with wondering admiration. Tho dress of black lace, relieved by tho scarlet poppies, which  Irene and Marion had insisted upon  remaining, harmonized perfectly with  Madge's rich loveliness, and she looked superb as sho stood boforo him,  holding a bouquet of faint, " yellow  blossoms.  "My word!" ho exclaimed at last.  "This is war paint with a vengeance!  "Do I look so liko a savage?" she  murmured with a smilo.  Ho put out his hand to draw her  to him, but Marion uttered a cry  of alarm.  "Oh, please don't Master Royco!  You'll crush her so!" Then, abashed  at her temerity, she flew from the  room.  "Marion regards you ns a work of  art, still wet and untouchable. But  you do look a tremendous swell,  Madge, in that dress, and with  madam's diamonds! By Goorge, they  never looked so well! I supposo it's  no uso asking you for tho first, or  any  dance?"  ho  added  ruefully  "Why not?"-  "Why not?"  "Oh,. because husband and wife  are not supposed to dance togother,  unless it'ss-tho last galop, aud only  then on sufferance."  "I am always learning things. Are  you. sorry, Royco?" and she put her  hand  on  his  arm.  "Sorry!" ho said. "I'd ��������� liko to  dance all tho'.time with you?"  "Never mind," sho said; thon with  averted oyes sho added: "You will  bc able to dance with Irone, Royce-)','  "Oh, yes," ho replied, fastening  his sloeve-links. "We are not husband aud wifo, you know."  "No," she said -in a low voire.  "Royce "  "Woll?" ho responded, looking up  quickly,  for   there*   was  a touch    of  "they   aro   Royce's.   I   found     them  anxiety in her tone.  - thc night ho was hurt on tho moor.  Sho looked at them with loving tenderness.

"Will you think  me ungratoful if I say that I would  rather lose all tho grand things -madam gavo me the other day than  these? Sco, there is his watch, and  there "  She stopped, for Irene, who had  slid hor arm around Madge's neck  and put her face against hers sympathetically,   suddenly   started .back.  "My locket!" broke from her lips.  Madge's hand closed over tho  things, and she turned white ns she  lookod up at Irene, as she stood with  trembling lips  and  heaving  bosom.     "Yours?" said Madgo almost inau-  dibly". "Y_ufs!"~I=I_th"ought-"it_was  his own. I������������������" Sho coased and hold  out tho locket. "Take it," sho said  hoarsely, with a dazod expression in  hor oyos, as if tho shadow of a great  sorrow wore creeping over hor. "Take  it���������I'do not want it." Irono fought  hard to regain hor composure.  Sho put Madge's hand back, . and  forced a laugli. -.- .   .''-'-.  "My dear Madgo," sho said. "Why  ���������why should I?

"And ovon if I cared  for it, do you think I would rob  you of it? It belongs to you as���������as  hc does! Hush, the. girl is coming  back!"-  Madgo sat with tho packet in her  hand while Marion fussed about; and  she still held iti when' Irene and the  maid had gono, and she���������Madge-  was alono^  An awful "suspicion was bearing  down. upon her. Littlo incidents  which sho had not noticed at the  timo of their occurronco Hashed upon  hcr memory. Why had Irono turned^  white at tho sight of the locket ifi;it"  had meant nothing when she gave it?  Why did Royco always avoid talking  about Irono? Why did Ireno always  rcfuso to accompany them when they  went  out  together?  Those and similur questions crowded upon her, and seemed to.stillo  ber.  Sho rose and stretched out hor  hnnds, panting as if for air, and as  if sho wero pushing the miserable  suspicion from hor.  "No, no; I will not believe it!" sho  said at last. "It Is I'ho loves; it  is II Ho never lovod hor, never!  ITo-is. my Itoyco!" And in a kind  of desperation sho thrust tho packet  out   of  hcr   sight.  CHAPTER  XXIX.  It wus the night of thc ball.

"Of'"course I will" ho replied; "I  shall have to trot about a great  deal, but I will bo with you as much  as I can; though it strikes' mo ra-.her  forcibly, that you will not be lonely"  and lie looked at her from tip to  too significantly. "You had plenty  of company tho other day, and I  fancy it  will  bo tho samo hero."-  "If all the world were round me,  and you wero absent I should feel  lonely, Jack." -She called him dark  now and again, in moments liko tho  present, whon her great love for hiin  revealed itself.  A   knock   came  to  tho  door,     and  Irene  said:  ���������"Are-you-rcady���������Madge��������� doar ?--   Royce fled, and Madgo opened the  door.  "I am going down to the ballroom to see (f everything is right,"  said Irene; then sho stopped nn,! uttered an exclamation of delight and  admiration.  "Oh,  Madge!    You look "  "No one will want to even g'ar.ro  in my direction while you aro near,"  said Madgo with sweet gravity.  "You look like ono of those delicate  flowers  in  the  conservatory."  And indeed the simile was not inappropriate. In the softly draping  faintly-colored dress, Irene looked  not unlike one of the fairy-like exotics which fill ono with a kind of  wondering admiration���������and fear; for  one cold breath slays them.  Thoy went downstairs. The groat  hall, usually so'dimly lighted, was  brilliant with candelabra, which  shod around that soft light which  gas cannot attain to. Tho ball-room  startled Madgo iuto a cry of wonder and' delight. She had hitherto  only scon it partially shrouded in  calico'.,coverings; but now it shone  in air its proper splendor of gilded  carvings, - and Venetian mirrors reflecting, innumerable wax candles,  which revealed the exquisite beauty  of the Wattoau panels, which ran at  intervals round the vast room. Tho  parquet floor of olive.and teak had  been polished until it was smooth as  glass, reflecting dimly the rich decorations and costly hangings. Down  tho broad stairs, which led directly  to this magnificent salon do danso,  woro,ranged stately palms and tropical ferns, their green fronds anil  leaves forming a delicate contrast to  tlio rich splendor of their surroundings. One -of'the ante-roonis led  directly to the fern-house, from which  tlio choice specimens had boon taken;  and iu the mimic tropical forest a  naiad incessantly poured a rill of  crystal water from her upturned vase  of Carrara marble. The fernery was  lighted by Japanese bitterns' only,  so that if the,eyes grew wearied by  tho dazzling ball-room, their owners  could rest them in this shadowy twilight. At ono end of the ball-room  was the gallery for the band���������ono of  the best in London. In the centro of  the front of this gallery was a larger  shield" bearing tho Landon coat of  arms, having on each side of it a  tattered flag torn from some ancient  foe by one of the dead-and-gone  Landons. Rank, wealth, tho prido of  placo, all declared themselves loudly  ���������perhaps too loudly for modern  taste���������in the whole scene, and it was  little wonder that Madgo should  stand dumb stricken in their midst.  Ireno took it all quito naturally,  but she was pleased by Madge's surprise  and   delight.  "It will be brighter still when tho  room i.s filled with handsomo dresses,  and the band is playing." she snid.  "A fitting sotting for your triumph  to-night,  dear,"  she added.  "My triumph!" said Madgo ihaking  her head.  Ireno .smiled.  "You will see. Why, dear, there  will not be tx more beautiful woman  in tho room to-night than Royco's  wifo!"  "Then you must stay away f.-om  it!" said Madge fervently. "Jf I  wero a man " she stopped suddenly, for tho countess had entered from  a doorway behind them. Sho v.as  dressed in her favorite gray satin,  and woro the family diamonds and  priceless family, lace. She lookod at  the two girls critically.  "You havo both very protty crosses," she said. "Yours is well chot:en  Irene, and yours too, Madge," she  added.  "1 nm glad you like it madam.  "No   one  could   help   liking   :<7.   Tt  becomes  you  remarkably well.   C-nno  to   me. '.'_  Madge came forward, and thn .  1111-  tess slightly altered the arrango.ro .it  of tho diamonds  wreath in hor hair.  "That is better," she said.      "You  wear your diamonds well, child."  Moved by a sudden impulse, Madgo  took her hand and kissed it.  "I am overpaid for my compliment."  "Have I offended hcr?" said Madge.  "No, no! IIow sweetly you did it,  dear! Why, a heart of stone could  not have resisted it! I should havo  flung my arms round hcr neck,  crushed hcr lace, and perhaps annoyed her, but you did just tho right  thing."  "For  tho first timo!"  They spoko almost in whispers, for  footmen in fino livery were coming in  whd out.  brents drew Madge to one of tho  windows, and moved, tho curtain  nsido and showed her thc drive. It  was lined with -vari-colored lamps;  and grooms stood in a cluster ready  to, receive  tho  carriages.  "It is like a scene in 'Tho Arabian  Nights,"  said Madge,   dreamily.  A voice muttering what sounded  like oaths made them start, and instinctively tHey looked at each other  beforo thoy camo out from the curtain  which  had concealed tliem.  It was Seymour. Ho was pacing  up -and down with a lettor in his  hand, his faco lined with care and  trouble. He started slightly as he  saw thom; then his face cleared, and  crushing tho letter into his pocket  ho camo forward bowing with e^ag-  geratod reverence.  "Venus and Helen of Troy!" ho  said. "I salute you! You look as if  you had both just floated down  from Olympus! Irene, dear, I want  you to givo mo tho first "dauco."  "Oh, ask Madge."  "Madge will perhaps sparo mo ono.  I know it is too much to ask, but I  want you to give mo the second,  dear."  "Very well," she said, her coldness  contrasting markedly with his affectionate ardor.  Ho took hcr ball programme and  wrote his name; not only for the  second but two others. Irene seemed  about to remonstrate, but sho said  nothing, and ho wrote his namo for  ono on Madge's card.  I "I dare not ask you moro," ho  said, "for every man in the room  will want to dance with the Lady  of tho Poppies!"  His compliments always mado  Madge feel as if sho wanted to get  out of the sound of his voico, and  she turned  away  from  him  with  in.  js=  tense gravity?  "Hark!" said Irene, "there are the  first carriages!"  Tho countess went and took hor  placo beside the door ready to receive her guests; the famous London  band filed into the gallery and began to tuno up their instruments;  the rattlo and roll of; tho heavy  chariots in which country peoplo  delight to make their state visits  woro heard more distinctly in tho  drive, joined to the voices of tho  grooms calling to each other; tho  richly apparelled footmen moved to  and fro, ushering in the guests,  whoso names were handed in from  the stately servant who stood at the  foot of tho magnificent staircase to  his fellow standing like a marshal  at the top.  Erect as an empress, with a proud  smilo on her face, the countess received her guests in the fashion of  the old and ceremonious school. Hor  bow, the few well-chosen words with  which sho greeted each newcomer,  wore perfect and worthy of tho  Georgian era.

Th'o black' knots frequently seen, on  plums, sour cherries, including wild  cherry trees, are produced by a fungus. During tho summer tliis fungus  boars ono kind of spore,~aiul in late  winter or early spring another.  These spores aro carried by t.he  wind ami grow where they find favorable lodgment. Their growih on  plums and cherries irritates tho tissues, which swell and apl it the r.ark,  thus exposing their blivo green interior, which later becomes sooty  black.  1 hu only satisfactory treatment is  preventive. Tho method generally  recommended is to cut out aiul burn  all knots found during wintei* and  early spring, and again during May  and Juno. This requires but little  timo. Wild cherries and plum trees  in fon:e rows whie*h are infested  should bo cut down and burned.  Pear blight or firo blight is duo to  a kind of bacteria which gains entrance to thc tissues of pear, applo  anu quince troes, and produces tho  brown or black leaves seen in the  early Part of tlio growing season. Insects arc said to be tlie principal  dissei-jinators of this blight, iie'-ause  they have been seen focding upon tbe  e.Mided juices of affected trees, and  also vis.tiug the flowers or wounds  through which entrance is believed  to bo gained. Speaking of this  blight. Prof. XV. B. Alwood, formerly of the Virginia experiment station,  says:  For many years wo relied upon  cutting out tho infected parts as  soon as discovered. If this is rigorously done, and esiecially if the  trees aro carefully gono over after  growth ceases in the fall and every  bit of blight wood taken out, tho  disease is greatly checked. This  work is exceedingly laborious, and I  havo had the blight steadily progress in spito of just such efforts.  About four years ago it occurred to  mo to try stimulation witli a view  of rendering the tissues resistant.  Ttuis was attomipted in 1901 on a  couple thousand trees, with good results, and was repeated and other  trees included in, 1902 and 1903.  Thus far tho effect has boen remarkable. Trees which had been literally cut to pieces in removing blight  wood were saved.  Two trees in the experiment on  which' tho blight Had extended to  the trunk, so as to leave scarcely  any live tissue, ' havo lived through  the last-two years against all expectations. All trees wliero blight  had not extended to tlio trunk were  saved. Since beginning this treatment, no cutting of blight wood has  been allowed, except that hero and  there nn entirely dead limb Ka9 boen  removed. Tho treatment has boen  by uso of acid phosphate, -14 per  cent., two parts, -muriate of potash",  50 per cent., one part, mixed and  applied freely ovor thc soil about  the trees. From five to 15 -pounds  havo been used, according to ��������� size  and condition of trees treated. We  make the application boforo tho buds  push, amd work it into tho soil, but  further th'an this, leave tho trees  wholly uncultivated.  The Reason Why  CAN YOU SPEAK ENGLISH?

By all Grocers  CARE OF TH!E OltCHlAltD.  Some of my neighbors have a  groat deal of troublo with tKc-ir orchards, writes ll'r. Henry Flater.  Somo winter-kill, others suiter on account of wet seasons, otKers-aro hurt  by drouth, while many troes aro destroyed by rabbits nnid meadow mice  in the winter. This last injury is  most severe where thero is a heavy  snowfall or whero growers use heavy  coverings of straw arouavd their  young trees. One of my neighbors  lost his wliolo orchard a few years  ago by allowing sod to grow around  his troes and mulching with light  straw manure v hich had been usod  for bedding tiio horses.   Seven yi-ars_=_ni{o th_is_ spring     I  in this way and kept in a profitable  healthy condition. I always trim  my peach trees in March. I use  commercial fertilizers and wood ashes. 1 uso ro barnyard manure of  nny kind in young orchards. I usually get from 25 to 75 cents for  bushel more for my fruit on the  local markets tlian souno of my  neighbors who do not give their orchards extra attention.  HOUSE TALK.  Tho collar is a thing a horso must  wear all day, when at work. Not  only that, he must pull against that  collar all tlve timo while doing his  work; so it should fit tho shoulders  as perfectly as possible.  It is easy to make a horse's shoulders sore in a very short timo if hc  is compelled to wear a. poorly-fitting  collar.  Tho experiment of feeding molasses  to horses has beon found to be economical and very effective in many  cases.  For this morning feed for heavy  work horses, givo ono quart of molasses, diluted with three quarts of  water, mixed with one quart of oatmeal and two quarts of wheat bran,  and from five to six pounds of cut  hay. At noon give four quarts of  oats. At night give tho same ration-as in the morning, with the addition of a littlo long hay in tho  manger.  T'his ration i.s sufficient for heavy  draft horses at heavv work.  It is equally good for driving  hor sos.  They do not fag out on a long  drive, and liave plenty of energy,  with" coats sleek and bright. Horses  out of condition always gain, rapidly on this diet, as it seems to have  an especially good effect on the digestion. It will make inferior hay  moro palatable.

TALKING MACHINE  IN  CHINA.  Almost  a Riot   When It Wouldn't  Work in Ono Up-Country Village.  "Those who havo reviled the talking machine," said Henry M. Black-  well, an engineer, "would have been  properly rebuked if thoy had witnessed a scene tliat attested its porular-  ity with tho hoathen Chinee.  "Three years ago I was witli a  small company of surveyors ��������� who  woro laying out tha lino of tho railroad between Hankow and Canton,  and ono day found us at Chush'nchow  a small village. A talking machine  happened to bo a part of our equipment, as it liad proved more efficient  in placating tho Celestials than a  squad of soldiers.  "Though our party had taken a  long jump into Chushach'ow, it became plainly evident that news  travels from ��������� inouth to mouth as  quickly as by telegraph', for a crowd  of several hundred chattering Chinamen gathered' outside of our quarters  and awaited a concert. They didn't  make any request; tlioy simply waited for what they considered their  rights.  "Ono of our military escort told  us what his compatriots wanted, and  when wo univeiled the talking ma-  china with great ceremony it received  moro reverence than an ancestor's  tomb. But tho machine kicked and  refused to play. Whereupon wo informed our self-invited guests,  through' the interpreter, tliat tho entertainment  was  off.  "Muttering arose from the crowd  and a spokesman ad-dressed tho interpreter, declaring that there had  been unfair discrimination and that  if their sovereign rights were withheld, they would 'get hunAc.' When  the littlo file of soldiers attempted  tb disperse thom. tho uproar became  deafening and th'o engineers rushed  out to find an incipient Boxer outbreak.  ���������"Several coolies mado a hostile  move toward the house, probably to  tako the machine apart and extract  the foreign songs from it. The  Chinese soldiers kept their heads,  strango to say, and when thc ebullition of Chinese curiosity began to  evaporate, thoy dispersed the rioters  and liaulcd off several to the-lockup.  "No prima donna over got tlio  tribute paid to that wenthcrb-aten  talking machine. We sat up Iitilf the  night tinkering around the mechanism until it rasped* off'the records of  'coon' song and comic opera trifles.  "Th'o next morning a larger crowd  was present at the concert and departed grateful, awestruck and satisfied. This musical event was unattended, however, by three of thc riot  leaders, they being detained in the  calaboose, as the magistrate had  sentenced them to bc suspended by  tho wrists for forty-eight hours.  Evory innovation is bound to have  its martyrs."  PRACTICAL   EDUCATION".  Employer ' (to applicant for clerkship)���������"H'm! I bolievo you know  nothing about tho shipping business?'

It is said of us that we bave in  tlio capital of England more Jews  th'an thoro are in Palestine, moro  Welshmen than there are in Cardiff,  and more Roman i atbolics than there  aro  in  Rome.  To communicate in his mother  tongue with each of these would put  some of us to  A SEVERE TEST.  There are men who could' do it. Sir  Edgar Vincent, whose Greek grammar is used at the University of  Athens, and Sir Howard, his brother,  who, when at tho head of tho Criminal Investigation Department, used  to correspond with the chiefs of tho  European police in their own, languages, these aro among thc few who  might be successful. But even such!  phenomenal polyglots as these would  have to confess themselves lost were  they turned loose in the outer fring-o  of our Empire.  Of India's 2i)S million inhabitants,  onjy a quarter of a million spoak the  language of the mother country.  Twenty-live distinct languages are  employed, commencing with Hindustani and Bengali; spoken by 87 and  44 millions respectively; Telugu by  more than 20 millions, -Tahrathi and  Punjabi by nearly as many, and so -  on���������nineteen languages, spoken each,  by more than a million, till you  come to sifch outlandish tongue, ns  Karen, Mundari, Tulu, Oraon, and  Khand���������even these equal tho tongues  of more than tbe total English-  speaking  there.  THE AVERAGE BRITON  would be about as comfortable in"  his use of the Maori tongue as in  his attempt to converse in the whistling language of the aborigines of  Malabar, or tho drum-beaten syllables of certain races on tho Conjjo.  But serious obstacles have to be  mastered by the man "wh'o carries tho  old flag far afield.  Each   new   acquisition   of  territory  represents the addition of a new ]an-'  guage to our already long list. When   ���������  Sokoto  and   Kano   fell,   a  couplo  of  years ago, before the prowess'of Col.  Morland, wo became possessed of not  only a now language,  but a new literature.     ITerc,   in   tho  midst  of   tho  desert, was a nation of semi-savages,  bloodthirsty    slave-raiders,   with     a  rich  and  sonorous  language     which",  though  pprhaps   known  to scarcely a  single white   man.   has been 'reduced  to   writing  this  thousand  years     at  least.      The  Kano   language'has     a  vocabulary  of  ton     thousand words,  and   though   the   natives  wero     then  still mahing slaves their pounds and  shillings,    anu     cowrie-shells      their  ponce,   they  had  a  literature rich'  in  political and religious poems and native  history.

Alberni will now take the place of  Manchuria, as the field where the  warlike operations of two great political parties will be watched with  absorbing interest by the people of  British Columbia. Both candidates  are good men, and both sides will put  up a stiff fight. The odds are, if anything, in. favor of Mi*. Hanson, the  Conservative candidate, who is widely  and favorably known, not ouly in  Nanaimo, but all over the island.  Mr. Hugh Aitken, editor of the  Nanaimo Herald, secured the Liberal  nomination at the Alberni convention  on Thursday. ��������� There were several  Bichmonds in the field���������Victoria's own  and only B. L. Drury having gone tip  on the 20th to get the nomination for  Mr. King of Alberni, and being ably  assisted hy Messrs. Waterhouse of  Alberni, Brewster of Clayoquot, ancl  others. However, the final choice  narrowed down to Messrs. Bledsoe  and Aitken, the latter winning out by  three votes.  Were this a political paper, we  might ask why the Liberals are contesting this constituency. As it is,  ���������we will content ourselves with wondering. Tbe Liberals have been yelling  themselves hoarse about the presence  of two Socialists in the House���������put  there by the Liberals themselves���������and  "theirown papers say that,-if-Mr.-Man-  son is elected, the alleged strength of  the Socialists will be broken. Then  why, in the name of patriotism, don't  they let him go in by acclamation 'r  He will go in anyhow, and it would  save a lot of expense. But what is the  good of talking common sense or  patriotism to a Liberal ?  The excellent conditions prevailing  in ths Province; the increased activity  in railroad and mining circles: the fact  that the West Coast of Vancouver  Island is busier with its mine* than  has been the case for many a day���������all  point to the fact tbat the improved  credit of the Province, due to the careful financial policy of the Government  is having its due effect on capital,  ���������which now begins to come in. In  British Columbia's case, better government has already begun to spell better  times.���������Victoria Week.  blind end baggage car and a semaphore, and are denounced as useless.

A western coroner has made a  savage attack upon the train rules in  use on the Canadian Pacific Railway.  The train rules in use on the Canadian Pacific are the rules used on all  the big railways of this continent.  They are the result of earnest study  and experience of scores of the ablest  operating railway men on the continent. Every once in awhile, however they run up against some learned  outsider, who would be feiused to  describe  the   difference  between    a  The country through which a party  of Washington correspondents has  traveled has been a new country to  practically all of the travelers. I  think I voice the opinion of all the  men when I say that we have been  surprised���������almost startled���������at the  extent of its possibilities. We have  been traveling through a region where  opportunity is spelled with large caps.  Wo believe, with Canada's distinguished Premier, that- the twentieth  century is to be indeed the century of  Canada. We liave seen the beginnings of that great movement in  which resources and men are brought  together. Our fathers saw a similar  movement in the United States; and  it is not so long since our great Western country was the scene of home-  steading, railway pioneering and the  making of a city over night. But  those daj-s arc gone in the States, and  we have become accustomed to think  of all those chances as in the past  tense. We of the younger generation  aie in the habit of thinking that we  have none of the chances to secure the  unearned increment which were  offered twenty and thirty years ago.  It was with some surprise therefore  that we discovered that there is nn  empire of opportunity just across the  imaginary boundary line to the north  and that many of our best and hardiest citizens are crossing the line to  close with the opportunities presented  Personally, I believe that the Canadian movement, as it might be called,  .will be very, rapid,���������Never-was anew  country pioneered under such auspicious circumstances. The strong,  transcontinental railroads are themselves leading in the movement, and  the bank and steam plow, and hurvest-  ingmacbines are found on the very  outposts of the advancing civilization.  A man who takes up a free homestead  a hundred iniles from any railway  station is likely in a year or two to  have the tracks running through his  own section. The man with a small  or no capital, but with strong arms  and a willing spirit, is not slow to  come to the land where he is needed  and will be properly rewarded.  Among the very many things by  whicli we have been impressed is the  fact that there is no lawless or vicious  element in the new Canadian country.  The people who are building this  empire, and who will themselves be  its foundation scones, are a thrifty.  God-fearing people, and it is impossible that they will not leave on the  country a lasting stamp.  The men from the United States feel  that there is a very strong political  bond between the two neighbor nations. They find in Canada all the  essentials of personal liberty in which  the citizens of our own loved republic  rejoice. The Magna Charta, tho writ  of habeas corpus, the right of trial by  a jury of one's peers, and to cross-  examine the complaining witness, the  sacredness of personal liberty and  private property, the right of the taxed  to be represented, and the final dominance of the popular voice in all matters  of legislatioli^-these are all the same  essentials of liberty which we of the  United States enjoy as a common heritage from our liberty-loving British  ancestry. ^ We see Canada as an au-  tonamous, self-governing, and already  practically independent nation, and  we expect to see this independence  grow more rather thnn less.  After journeying through a country  of opportunity and active commercial  development���������much of it still in its  crude state���������it was fitting that we  should have been brought to a city of  beautiful homes like Victoria. Here  we have found what these people can  uid will do when they have leisure to  devote to thc art of living.  Our travel has been rather rapid and  our impressions necessarily more or  less superficial, but we believe they  are true so far as they go. Our chief  regret is the distance that lies between  the province of British Columbia and  the district of Columbia, where most  of us make our homes.  GILSON GARDNER.  The Editor's Needs  " The delights of globe-trotting are  many and varied," says Burton  Holmes, the well known editor, lecturer and traveller, " but perhaps the  most amusing five minutes of my last  years' wanderings were passed on the  Pacific Coast early last winter. I  stopped for lunch in a small town in  California, and picked up a paper  from a North Dakota town which  contained the following editorial paragraph : ' It is reported that one of  the fastidious newly-married ladies of  Harvey, N. D., kneads breads with  her gloves on. The incident may be  somewhat peculiar, but there are  others. The editor of this paper  needs bread with his shoes on; he  needs bread with his shirt on; he  needs bread with his pants on, and  unless some of the delinquent subscribers of this "Old Rag of Freedom"  pay up before long, he will need bread  without a d���������n thing on���������and North  Dakota is no Garden of Eden in the  winter time.'

B. itc.nnes. the newly appointed commissioner, for Yukon territory. Tlie  "boy orator," in the course of his  speech, said :  "I have heard of trouble and factions in Yukon���������not in this portion of  the district, however ��������� but I come  among you knowing no fraction or  clique and wholly unbiased and free  from prejudice. It is my intention to  pursue, as your conimissioner, a course  that will command the respect and  unqualified support-of-all-right-think-  ing people, All my life I have been  an unswerving Liberal, bnt I do not  come to you as a party man. It is my  intention to give you an administration that is above party, an administration that is clear of all cliques and  factions, so that when the time may  come when my relations with Yukon  may be severed, I may leave you  possessing that full and entire confidence that your greetings to me show  you to have in meat this, the beginning of my administration.  " Another thing I wish to impress  upon your minds and that is, wher.  you have any favors to ask, suggestions or complaints to make, or  grievances to air you, come to me as  man to man. ' Let there bc no gulf  fixed between thee and me,' but come  us one friend to another and we will  reason together. I cordially invite  every man from Whitehorse to visit  me whenever he comes to Dawson."  The railway companies in Switzerland have determined that for tho  future all children under 2 feet 1 inch  in height will bc passed at half fare,  and those above, whatever their ages  may be, will be treated exactly as  adults. At each station, near tho  booking-office, a measuring machine  is to be fixed, and whenever a child  applies for a half-fare tickot it will bo  invited to stand under the scale.

WARSHIP KNIAZ  NOW AT BOTTOM  While a Russian Priest Was  Purifying Her by Sprinkling  Men and Flag With Holy  Water, the Warship Sank.  KUTSEN-I, -Koumania,    July   10.���������  The announcement that the battleship  .   Kniaz   Potemkin   sailed   with  Rear-  . Admiral Krugei-'s squadron yesterday  evening turns   out   to   be   incorrect.  , Before leaving the Kniaz PoteinKin  the mutineers opened thc ..seacocks  and flooded her hold. She . is now  lying at the bottom, but it is expected  *:  will be refloated in time to leave for  ���������   Sevastopbol July 12.  Admiral Kriigcr on Sunday boarded  and took   possession   of the Russian  1 battleship Kniaz Potempkin, King  Charles of Rouuiania haying sent  instructions to the commander of the  Roumanian squadron that the  vessel  ��������� be delivered to  the Russian authori-  :  tics without raising difficulties.   The  t  torpedo boat which accompanied tlie  -/"Kniaz Potempkin, however, left for  Odessa without surrendering, declaring that she had not mutinied but the  Kniaz Potemkiu "had forced her to  follow.  ~ The Associated Press representative  inspected the Kniaz Potemkin after  3 the withdrawal of the .Roumanian  guard. Despite the efforts of the  Roumanians to get things iu shape,  everything aboard the battleship was  still in a state of wild disorder. Tho  officers' cabins were stripped of  everything of value and bloodstains  were everywhere. There was enough  ammunition aboard the Kniaz Potemkin to have enabled the1 mutineers to  make ..desperate resistance.  -...-- It is said that during the last few  days the vessel was navigated by two  engineers and an ofticer with revolvers  at their heads.  All of the sailors wished to surrender  . ..        v .  - 'with the1 exception of -latuschenko,  the leader of the mutiny, who resisted  for some time and wanted to blow up  , the ship. . .,  Seven officers were prisoners aboard  .,   the Kniaz Potemkin.   Th'ey were in al  5" pitiabl(TcEfl'difi6u''*ff*6hY'-riU-treatm'ent.  - They declare that Matuschenko himself killed-ten officers, oi. the battleship.  , - * All the papers and^books belonging  to the vessel ywere 'destroyed,' It  appears that the decision to surrender  the Kniaz Potemkin was made wlien  it became evident,that no other vessel  would join in the mutiny.  The crew of torpedo boat No. 207  were given half an hour in  which to  " surrender or leave port. "A considerable number of the crew*1 bf the Kniiiz  Potemkin surrendered to tho Russian  " squadron, alleging that they had  acted under compulsion. " Thp coal  supply of the mutineers' battleship  was nearly exhausted but there was  ample food. A Russian priest, after  lhe transfer, had service of puriflca-  ���������tion���������on -boaid-the-Kniaz-Potem'oin,  sprinkling the men and her flag with  holy water.  ���������*_. **���������* ������������������fr' ���������"fr* '*^**J t,*fr* *****- ������������������fr* '*fr. ���������������***- ****** **fr* fti fti fti fti r*t*i fti fti fti fti fti fti fti  ���������i^ip-Tp^PVS,' lV. lV lV lV '+' '*'' * lV *���������.' l+J ������������������V1'->' l+J lV l+ '+ lV l*J +*  ty  ty  ty  ty  ty Paints, Varnishes, Brushes  ty'  ty  #  We have it-large assortment of Garden Tools, Spades,  Hoes, Rakes, Etc., 'Ornamental.

ROBERT SAMSON, t  ���������j.  *  A Telephone  Romance  I.  It really had reached a crisis. I  don't remember anything like it _ In  the whole course of my life. True  when I wus at? Harrow I wont  through a term of groat suspense,  consequent upon the captain's delay  in Idling the eleventh place in the  team, but that really can't compare  with what I have experienced lately.  Her name���������the crisis���������is Irene, and  her   father   is  Sir  Stuart   Crowthor.  In view of the crisis, therefore, I  decided to go and seo Jack Collier.  Jack was at Harrow with mo, and  now practises law in the Inner Temple;  so I sallied  forth.  I .say sallied, but, as a matter of  fact, I took a hansom, as being  more practicable. Onco settled therein, I. leaned buck, lit a cigarette, and  began to think out iny plan of  campaign.  "Collier,"   I reflected,  as  my cab���������  the    last    link   in   a    writhing     chain  that stretched from Trafalgar Square  to Exeter Hall���������crawled slowly e.ist-  ���������  ward,   "is  a  man  of  tho  law.   What  he wants is a lucid statement of my  ' case.   The  clearer the statement   tho  ������������������ easier   will   it  bc  for    him  to    weigh  .the matter, and pronounce a judicial,  well-balanced    opinion.       Rhapsodies  will simply confuse the issue, as they  soy  in  the  House.  ���������"'When I get to the Temple I shall  greet Collier quietly. Ho will at  once see, from the gravity of my  maimer, that there is something up,  and will lean back in his chair and  give rne his whole attention. Then. I  shall unfold my points one by one,  and, finally, ho will givo mo tho best,  advice in his most lucid style. On  that advice my further action In tho  matter, as tho War Offlco says, will  depend."  I say this is the kind of interview  I anticipated, and fully intended to  have, with Collier. As a matter of  fact, his whole behavior was disappointing. His faco did not at onco  become grave on seeing my serious  demeanour; on the contrary, lie  laughed, as soon as he saw me, and,  with scarcely a greeting, asked me if  I was  "in it��������� again.".  "In what?" I said, rather lamely,  I  fear.  "In; the paternal hot water," ho  replied, alluding, I imagine, to some  buried controversy between mysolf  and Lord Bravington.  "I have reached a crisis," I said,  with dignityr "and havo como to  consult you as one man of tho world  would consult another on the best  way of���������-*'- '������������������,.���������;  "What, not the old man this  time?   Who  is  shethen?"  1 stated my .case with considerable  eloquence,''I .fancy.  "And the most wonderful thing  about her," I concluded, a little out  of breflth after a quarter of an hours  talking, "is the way she enters into  all my interests. Her opinions, her  ideals, her tastes are mine. Tlio  more we see of each other, the more  we find that our outlook on life is  the same.   Ours  is a. union  of hearts  and souls.   It's " ,,  Collier started; I started. The  calm of his room was broken by a  strident clanging, which appeared to  come from a corner near the fireplace.  "It's only my telephone," said  Collier,  laughing at  my  alarm.  "You never told me you had ono!"  X said  indignantly.  To have my peroration spoiled by  a self-asserting telephone-bell, the  very existence of which I had been  unaware, was disconcerting.  "It's only Just been laid on," ho  explained, speaking of tho thing as  if it were the water supply or a  fresh coat of paint. "You can hold  on, too, ii you like, lly telephone's  got a double receiver."  He led me across to tho instrument  of torture. It was one of thoso to  which a kindly company provides  two receivers, one for each ear. You  _ can___al!y_-hear_.quit-=wcll���������by��������� 1 islen--  ing at one, so that two persons nan  li.str-n to the same speaker at the  other end by holding one receiver  each.  "Are you thero?" sang out Collier,  applying one receiver lo his ear,  while  1  gripped  the  other.  "Is that Mr. Collier?" replied n  far-away  voico  evasively.  "It is. Who are you?" said Collier,   riili   interrogatively.  "I      am     Goodwright,"    said  '.voice.  "Oh:"   said   Collier,   surprised.  ���������"Oh:"   I   very   nearly   said.      being  reir.itdi-.d   just   in   time,   hy   a     frown  from       Collier,     that,    telephonically  speaking. I did net  exist.  Goodv.right waa a mutual friend  of ours, and one of our set. It war,  not likely that he would have anything to say to Collier thar. wns not  for rae to hear, so I continued to  listen. I mention this in my own  defence, because the family motto is  "Honeste et rectc."  "I wanted to speak to you vory  particularly," continued Ooodwright;  "and I couldn't manage to como  nnd see you, so I had to try this  way. It's very private, though.  You're sure you haven't got a client  there?"  "Xo: a sign of one," Collier truthfully replied.  ���������'That's all right, because it's not  professional. As I said before, it's  very personal. You have never proposed to a girl in your life, havo  you?" queties the voico of Good-  wright   anxiously.  "My experiences in that direction"  replied Collier, evading- the question,   "are  not  extensive."  "Well, but have you ever been on  the point, of it?"  "I don't liko these inquiries,"  complained the man of the law. "I  am a man more questioning than  questioned, cs a rule, and changing  roles don't suit me. I think it's iny  turn now. You want to know whether I have ever proposed, and how I  did   it,   so  that  you   may  profit   by  That's   pretty  well  to  adviso on,     isn't  my experience?  tho brief I am  it?"  "Well, it might be," said Good-  wright  grudgingly.  "Very well, thon; now for a few  questions to bo asked by counsel to  clear up doubtful points. Numbor  one, who is she?"  "You do take tho wind out of a  chap's sails!" grumbled Goodwright.  "Well,   it's   Ireno   Crowther."  Something seemed tho matter with  Collier's room. The coiling whirled  round in an alarming manner,' the  carpet appeared to be chasing the  ceiling, tho hum of trallic in the  street below stopped suddenly. Tlie  telephone receiver, without any warning, fell out of my hand.    I sat down  "Tho  note    of    triumph in his tone,  telephone hus a  double receiver."  I dropped my paper on tho floor,  whero it joined Goodwright's, forming a little heap, and followed the  waiter to tho telephone.  Goodwright was standing with one  receiver to liis ear, tapping his foot  impatiently on tho floor, and holding out the other receiver for me to  take.  "Here you are," ho said. "It's  Collier, and, for somo unearthly reason, ho wants to speak to both of  us at the samo time. Why ho can't  repeat his message I don't know!"  I grasped iny receiver, and listened. The slight, rustling sound that  cumo through the wiro told mo that  Collier  was  at  tho  telephono  at  hi.s  ffiboiit tho  very suddenly in a handy chair,  and | end, and was whispering to   someone  waitod for the room to become still  again. Collier's voice, iniles away  now, went on monotonously. Somewhere in a mist I could seo him looking at mt���������rather anxiously, T  thought.  By degrees tho things in tho room  consented to settle down again, and  tho stupid buzzing in my head became fainter. Mechanically I got up,  and, in spite of Collier's attempts to  wavo mo off, resumed my hold of the  receiver.  "Well, I shall weary you if go on  any longer singing her praises."  Goodwright's voico was saying; "but  I wanted you to know bofore anyone  elso what a lucky chap I am going  to be!"^  "Pretty confident, aren't you?" I  heard Collier reply.  "I feel confident, old chap. I  don't sny so because of any particular attractions I may possess, you  know; but, you see, our tastes  and aspirations fit in so wonderfully.  Tho moro we see of each otlior, tiio  moro I feel that wo wero simply  mado for each other. It's a union of  souls,  if ever theto was one!" ;  II.  Never did the light penetrate darkness quicker than Goodwright's  words clear my befogged brain. That  this card-playing, race-going, Bond  Street walking idiot should use iny  very phrases, share my innermost  thoughts! A union of souls between  Trene and him! Tho idea was sacrilege.  Down went the receiver. I dashed  for my gloves and hat, with one  idea in my head, and in another second I should have gone, when Collier closed the conversation on the  telephono rather hurriedly, and came  t_ward..   mc.  "I am sorry, old chap! I would  never have let you listen if I had  known; but I never dreamt of this..  Feeling; better  now?"-  "I'm aU right," I said, buttoning  my coat. "I am going straight to  her."-  "He's going to speak to her tonight at tho Fenfolds' dance," said  Collier commiscratingly.  , It struck me that ho looked decidedly troubled���������unnecessarily so, I  thought. Collier generally sees only  the humorous side of any trouble of  mine, but his face now expressed  nothing but sympathy for a lost  cause.   It  was  very  damping.  "I'm not going out to order  coffin, man," I reminded him;  though, to look at you, that's  you  appear to  think  I'm fit for."  "Oh, you are looking all right I'he  replied   feebly.    "IJut "  "To-night," I said, interrupting  him, as I stood with my hand on  the door, "thero are going to be  proposals of two ordinary men to  the girl best worth proposing to in  tho world. If one of 'em is rejected,  he will congratulate the other like a  man, go home, write a few letters,  make a few arrangements, and start  on tho quest of forgetful ness from  Charing Cross to-morrow morning.  On second thoughts, I can't do anything this morning, so tho only  pressing problem is how to get  through the intervening hours between   now  and  to-night."  I ran down the steps, and called ������  cab. Collier still watching mo with  the samo troubled look on his face.  I wasn't sorry when my hansom had  carried me out into Fleet Street, and  the face ot* Irene, inviting, replaced  the  visage of  Collier,   foreboding.  III.  my  "nl-  all  standing by  Tho situation wns potting on my  nerves. After all, Collier could not  have any bail nows for either of us.  It was only his way of inviting us  to a bachelor-dinner. I came a little  nearer to tho machine, and shouted  "Hallo, thore!" whilo Goodwright,  fired by my example,  did the same.  "Oh, yes! Ah, are you there?"  was Collier's reply.  Kven   over   the   telephones  I     could  tell, that  hi.s  voico  was  nervous  ami  .jerky.  "Now, I do hopo you two chaps  won't take it badly," began Collier's  voice; "but I'vo got something- to  toll you that you won't much caro  to hear. It concerns you both, so I  wanted to tell you together. You  both of you did me the honor of  making a confidant of mo this morning." ":'..'  I felt Goodwright looked at me  accusingly, as "if I had appropriated  a special privilego of his.  "It was about Miss Crowther" the  voice  went  on.  Accusation left tho faco of Goodwright in a hurry. Kage and contempt had a keen struggle for the  vacant placo, and tho battle was  drawn.  "Well, after you left, I-Ianscll, I  thought ovor things, and then.went  up  to  Queen'svGate  and saw  her."  "As advocate for both sides?"  Goodwright  queried  sarcastically.  "The fact is," Collier went on  nervously, ignoring tho interruption,  "Miss Crowther and I havo been engaged for some weeks, but we weren't  intending to announco it just    yet."  Tho hesitating voice ceased suddenly, after a few minutes; there  was a sound of whispering nt tho  other end, and then another voico  spoko.  ".Jack forgot to tell you," it said,  "but we want you to be the very  first to contratulate us to-night, and  you art both to como early. I shall  break ft oir with Jack if you don't.  Promise  me."  And  we did.���������London Answers.  ...���������House  SOME  DAINTY DISHES  ������  A WOMAN'S WIT.  How She Saved Twenty Thousand  Dollars Trom Bobbers.

This h'ns a  ���������short brim nnd thc top of tho crown  ts cxtejide-d as wide as tiie brim. Between is a hollow spare, which is  filled in "with ri__on or flowers. Such  a hnt would bo admirable for travelling.  The short sleeve is unquestionably  reinstating tho bracelet, and the  broad bracelet, too, rather than the  inconspicuous ciiains set with ca-  -ochons, gemff which have had a  Vogue  of lato years.  Ono of the most useful garments a  woman can have is n long coat for  travelling, nutomoliiling or rainy-day  wear. Such a cont is made of light  rainproof cloth, with a double cape,  over which is a wide collar, which  can be turned up for warmth or protection. A belt, looswly caught  about tho waist, defines the figure  vaguely. TKo sloeves arc ample, and  finished with broad  cutis.  Cashmeres have not roused as much  enthusiasm here as in Paris, but in  tho finest qualities these materials  arc greatly liked by the great Frcuch  dressmakers. Indian cash-mere, in  particular, phenomenally fine and  light, is in demand.  The close fitting bolero admits of  more variety in detail than the short  fitted or sack coats, but if intended  for morning street weaa* and o������ the  ���������tailor genre, the plainer boleros are  really smarter in effect than the  much trimmed models.  Embroidered linen belts of every  variety are to be popular with tho  summer girl, and some extremely  fetching belts of this class are in  plain linen, buttonholed in small  scallops on the edges. Tliey are of  tho crush-^lt order and are sold in  sets, with' turnover collars and cutis  to match.  No accessory of dress is made more  of lately tlwin tho belt. The craze  for. ribbons is partially responsible,  * but every variety of linen belt and  girdle is also being.shown. A new  idea is to have a matching stocK  and belt in two colors of linen. Blue  and white is the prettiesrt combination, but aU colors arc to bc had.  Heavy Irish crochet ornaments and  guipure of the embroidered linen variety, so heavy that they seem to  .belong with' the passementeries rather than the laces, appear on.everything from. mousseline to broadcloth.  Flat buttons of plain or shaded  enamel are upon a large number of  the French frocks and it is possiblo  to obtain almost any shade in them.

Fow people know tho real color of  gold, because it is seldom seen except when heavily alloyed, which  makes it much redder than when it  is pure. Tho purest coin ever rnado  wore the - fifty-dollar pieces- which  onco were in common use in California. Their coinage was abandoned  for two reasons; first, because the  loss by abrasion was so great, and,  second, .because their interior could  be bored out and filled with lead.  The difference in weight was so small  that it could not bc noticed in such  large pieces. - They ;wero octagonal in  shapo and were the most valuable  coins over minted and circulated. All  gold is not'alike when refined. Australian gold is distinctly redder than  that taken in California. Moreover,  placer!, gold is more yellow than that  which is taken from quaTtz. This is  ono of the mysteries -of metallurgy,  because the gold in placers comes  from that which is in quartz. Guld  taken from dilferent placers will vary  in color.

Tire congregation, 'panic-, .stricken,  rushed to tho doors and succeeded in  escaping from the burning chapel.  It was then discovered, says th'o  "Petit Journal," that the fire originated in the dead priest's cell,  whero a mass of books and papers  woro in flames. With considerable  difiiculty tlio firo was finally extinguished. Thero was no doubt that  Father Borromnns "liad deliberately  started tlio tiro before going in to  llio service in the chapel.'

The contrast between entering tho  English navy fifty years ago and  now is nmusingly described by Admiral Fi-eomantlo in "The Navy as I  Hnvo Known It." Notice of his appointment reached him in rather a  striking manner whilo he was at  school,  a boy of thirteen.  Tlie master in charge had gone out  of the room, and a friend opposite,  sitting near the door, took advantage of his absence to throw a book  at me, a compliment which I naturally returned. Just at this moment  the master re-entered the room, and  it unluckily struck him lightly on  the head.  Htf immediately disappeared.

"I  salute you as a member of the royal  navy."_  I scarcely knew what to make of  this somewhat stilted announcement  of tmy new dignity, but it seemed  that I had suddenly become an important  person.  My uncle took .'me to Woolwich-the  next day, and when "in thc train  asked nre if I was prepared to *oass  my examination. This was a surprise to me, as I had not before  heard tho question . of examination  mentioned, ns I told my uncle, when  the following conversation took  place:  "Well, wliat Have you been doing  at schoel?"  "Oh, Vergil, and a littlo Horace,  Xenoplion'   Anabasis,  and  so on-."  This did not seem- to to near  enough, as mty uncle looked grave;  but seeing my somewhat troubled  look, he soon added:  ��������� "Well, I don't think you'll be  asked much of that. What have you  done in mathematics?"  So I began again:  "Fractions, decimals, so many  books of Euclid, algebra as far as  quadratic equations," and there I  stopoed.     Again  mv uncle said:  "Well, I don't 'think they'll ask  you much of that," sand then added,  "Can you do the rule of three, and  can you write English from dictation?" To which I rcrlied that "I  thought I could," and he promptly-  relieved  my n-jinn  b.v saying:   'i-Well.-Kdriy.-I-think^-you Ul-pass.^-   f   Little Ethel (laying down r.

When Xalure gives her signal that  something is wrong it is generally  with the food; the old Dame is always faithful and one should act  at once.

I tried all kinds of  breakfast foods, but they were all  soft, starchy messes,., which - gave me  distressing headaches. I drank strong  coffee too, which appeared to benefit  me at the time, but added to tho  headaches afterwards. Toast and  codec were no better, for I found tlic  toast very  constipating.  "A" friend persuaded me to quit  the old colTee and the starchy breakfast foods, and use Postum Coffee  and Grape-Xnts instead. I shall  never regret taking his advice. I began using them throe months    ago.  "The change they have worked in  mo is wonderful.
