The ' lost crew shipped here and the  captain's wife was also on tward.- The  Mirinedofarwas "built here in 1890 and  was valued at $40,090, but carried no  insurance.

The angered  raging'wind sent mountainous waves  to batter to pieces the "wooden boat  wherein eight men and one woman  were'imprisoned.    The vessel creaked  and groaned and tbe timbers snapped.  The bulwarks went^ over.- The wind  hissed through the walls and sent the  bodies into the lake.   . Ahead tumbled  the steel steamer Westniount, staunch |  and/.-able.    Behind    it pitched-the  Melrose," a frailer  vessel  than   'the  Minnedosa,   and  faring - almost    as  badly in the howling storm.   One  of  tbe crew had a sharp axe.    It fell and  the blow set tbe Melrose free.    A few  moments later the Minnedosa with its  nine  heroes  and  a  cargo  of -75,000  bushels  of  wheat,-- lurched   to    the  bottom off Harbor Beaeh, Lake Huron,  - When,. the   tragedy   occurred-"the  Melrose .and  Westmount, had  been  near by the Minnedosa.   The  tow  of J  the  Minnedosa  came   with it.   The  tow line had not broken>^The heroes  on the Minnedosa had ct)t themselves  loose from the steamer ahead.  .Captain Milligan of the Westmount  stated that the Minnedosa was carrying an unusually heavy load. It was  late in the season and rates were high.  Ihe Minnedosa went to the bottom  without a signal of distress. It was  not known how serious was its condition.  Captain Davey of-- the Melrose had  hi9 wife, daughter and little son with  him during the storm.   "We never  expected to see'l&nd," he said. "Suddenly there catce a snap and she severed the 10-inch hawser that held the  Melrose to the Minnedosa. I rushed  between the cabin and the deck. My  wife and daughter tugged at my  clothes and befcged of me to stay inside. They oried. The waves were at  the doors. The'water ruBhed in. The  cabin was flooded. Nothing on the  boat was dry/ .The bulwarks were  washed away, when help came, and  none too _oo_,lfor .the Melrose was  nearly gone.".\! *'  Alpena,- Mich., Oct 21.

The Amateur Dramatic  Club has  been in existence now for about a year  and a half during which time a number of performances have been given,  but none of, these was attended with  the success which marked the production  of   "Dandy, Dick"  on  Monday  night.    Throughout, the  whole play  went" with a   vivaciousness  seldom  witnessed amongst amateurs.   Not a  hitch marred the  peiformance from  start;' 'to finish, and  each  individual  sef med to fit perfectly.into the role in  \yhich' be had  been cast.

Mr.  Gilleland is a comparative stranger in  thocitj*. this being his,first appearance before a Revelstoke audience, ibut  from the Heartiness of his reception,  it Js safe to say  it  will  not   by  any  means be bis lost.

Tho Now York Times says a good  deal of interest has been aroused, in  medical circles by a circular issued  by th'o Now York post-graduate hosjiital relating to the. treatment of  tuberculosis under the supervision  of Br. John P. Itussoll, in tho hospital annex in East 19th .street. Tho  circular aims to show how tuberculosis can be treated in the home by  tho careful selection of foods. . In  it Dr. Itusscll brings forward a  treatment of his own which is hailed  with approval by the Post-graduate  Hospital ofllcinls. and n medical committee nppointed to examine into  tho annex work. Dr. Russell says hc  found a combination of foods which  seems to bc effective in the destruction of the bacilli of tuberculosis.  Tho most beneficial Item of tho food  combination���������consisting of butter,  bread eggs, milk and emulsion ��������� is,  he says, vegetable juico. Since tho  introduction of this juico thc report  records remarkable results among  thc tuberculosis patients. Thc fluid,  which Dr. Russell and his colleagues  at thc post-graduate hospital believe  to havo beneficial properties is tho  combined juice of every kind oi vegetables to bo had in the market. It  has been in uso in-the hospital along  with other diet since January 7th.  It is now recorded that in tlie first  five months of this year eleven patients wero discharged "apparently"  cured, against a record number of  13 cures effected during thc whole  12 months of 1904. This sudden increase and the fact that the patients aro still thriving upon -the vegetable juice treatment lead tho examiners to believe that Br. Russell  has discovered a fluid tho properties  of which are fatal to tho progress of  tuberculosis.  FOOD OR ANTI-TOXIN.  "What, this vegetable juice is,"  said Dr. Donald M. Barstow, < no of  the committee examining Dr. Russell's method at the post-graduate  hospital, "none of us can say. It  may be a food or it may bc antitoxin. I am inclined to think- it is  a food wliich so builds up lho constitution of a patient that presently thc system is strong enough to  givo bnttle to and overcome the bacilli of tuboriulosis.  "I do not wish to be quoted as  saying that this vegetable juice is a  cure for tuberculosis. I only know  that it is beneficial when given to  the patient with other foods. Whnt  it may turn out to bo is another  matter."  In the report1 issued bv-the postgraduate hospital, tho preparation  of tho vegetable juice is thus ~ described: Equal parts by weight of  raw vegetables arc scrubbed with n  brush in fresh water then mixed  and chopped until tho particles nre  small enough to go into tho receiver  of a grinding machine where the  mass is i educed to a pulp. ' The  pulp i.s collected and the juices  squecred through coarso muslin  cloth. The vegetables first used  woro potato, onion, .beet, turnip,  cabbage and celery. Later wore added sweet potato, apple, pineapple.,  carrot, parsnip, and later still rhubarb (pio plant), summer squash, tomato, spinach, ladishos, string beans  nnd  gieen  peas'with  tho pods"  Tn his report to the hospital* and  thi circular fssued b.v tho po-it-gra-  rluato officials to private physicians.

What vns tho constitutional disposition, if any, most likely to cause  a tendency to cancer? Having regard to tho loenl invasion and distribution of cancer, its provocation  by local irritation, its more thnn accidental heredity and its quiet settlement in thc system, it seemed probable that its unruly proliferation of  cells, however provoked, betrayed  the awakening to activity of the silent memories of ancestral germinal  growth.  Another point worthy of investigation was- how best to mate thc person having a native tendency to insanity so as to cancel it in tho progeny, or, better still, convert it into  a good evolution variation, for that  was wliat sometimes happened, one  child of a nouro-hatic family ."Vdying  in a lunatic asylum, while another  roso to eminence ns poet, painter or  orator  EriLEBSY AND INSANITY.

Hut there are other penalties than  this to meet possible offences against  "the morality of t'he turf," and  quito an elaborate system of forfeits  exists. Tacitly every "sport" who  engages in horse-racing admits his  liability to the lines, penalties, and  forfeits which the .Jockey Club or  the stewa'rds of "local" meetings  may at aiiy_timo  'THINK FIT TO  INFLICT.  Defiance is almost unknown, iiid if  persisted in would doubllen.s cntnil  the c:itrenie jienaity of Turf law.

It was  elotiuent���������deadly; and it brought  Chai ters a defiant coolness Turning his back, he offered ins arm as  with an unquestionable light ner  lips quivering, Stephanie hesitated;  then, as that wail of violins 'floated  across at tho psychic moment, she  smiled and dared it. Ho had whirl-  -ed her chai longingly away under thc  veiy eyes of the man who, it was  said, had all tho unmeasured secret  power-of Russian officialdom behind  him.  At last came tho moment when,  ignoring Kranovitch's figure on .the.  stops, ho drew her furs closer at the  enrringo door. .

A delicate  warning, or merely a guarded invi-  ��������� tation? Impossible to decide. He  would go! Ho breakfasted, dressed,  pocketed a revolver, and sot out. He  had expected.'a walk of u fow hundred yards, and a possiblo glimpse  of tho woman ho had set himself to  win.  A gloom, an atmosphere of impending evil, hung over tho streets.  Tragedy's own wnn face seemed to  stares out, from some of the splintered windows; military pickets, knots  ol blooding men seemed everywhere.

"And you are the man 'possessing  tho money that they rcquiro.-immedi-  aloly at all costs���������and that"you are  prepared  to pay!" ho said.  Chartcris sat like a man stunned  by lightning. That impulse to deal  a decisive blow at tlie '���������aim, watching face had been overwhelmed by  the nameless fear thnt it might cost  him thc woman lie loved. Dusk had  just fallen; thcy wero sitting over  cigars on a terrace at tho rear of  Kranovitch's house, and ho could"  make out tho dear figuro moving  along tiio garden paths below. That  vcry day bofore, yielding recklessly  to Kranovitch's request, ha had con-  for ������10,000 on the Credit Bank.  They were in his pocket-book now.  The sound of a dull, distant explosion came through tho still air as ho  rose, hia finer instincts surging to  the'surface.  "You mean, you thought to buy  me with your daughter's heart," he  said, his handsome faco set and contemptuous. "I might havo guessed;  instead. I've learned tho truth that  love loaves a man blind.

Then Lord Roberts went to South  Africa, nnd ho once more became  persistent in his efforts to enlist, his  argument' being that if onc veteran  was gootl enough to command the  forces another was good enough to  serve in the ranks. His perseverance was so far rewarded that ho  was assisted to get to South Africa,  but peace was proclaimed three  days beforo he arrived in Cape  Town.

Tliis vast Northwest is a truly wonderful world. It has characteristics  of its own that differentiate it from all  the rest of the world. Albert.-, and  ', British Columbia can boast of the  most charming combination of earth-  forms and conditions. I believe them  to be perfectl.v unique. They stand  also as the last discoverable land of tlie  setting sun. If one would go bej*ond  here he must wade, or swim.  Tt is well nigh impossible to conceive  of the real newness of this region. As  iate as 1SSG a book vvas published in  London entitled, "An Attempt to gel  East from the Columbia River by way  of the Canadian Route.'' Jt is a wild  nnd exciting tale he tells. The.uithor  ridicules the possibilities of anj* of the  claims of tlie Canadian Pacific Rail-  waj-. He tells of the huncheds of  miles of deserted and hopeless "signal-  boxes" and lifeless cabins, buried deep  in eternal snow, and of the hundreds  of miles of railway also hopelessly  buried beneath awful avalanches, and  of as* many hundred miles of track  absolutely swept awav*. He declares,  thus, in 1SS0. that "It is impossible to  keep anv* road open to the Coast,''  adding that "even if snow sheds weie  built   through   the_lentire_. niounuin  region  thev-could  not be built stiong  enough to stand  the destroying avalanches."     He  tells of freezing trains  that   could   make   but three or four  miles an  hour in  these frigid condi  tions.     He  insists, finally, that in disgust   he   leaves   the   train   stuck   in  enormous drifts  on  the North Shore  of   Lake   .Superior, and   himself vvith  others going on  ahead on snow shoes,  and reaching Montreal days befoie the  train.     Tliis   is   a   rare book indeed.  And I  am  reminded  that ISSfi is neai  onough   to   us   to   have   the story of  ���������   these  hardships  told even now in the  East, and have them believed, as they  still   are, to   my knowledge.    In fact,  only  three  years ago when making a  party   to   visit this coast with me, I  found   pcopie  who     insisted   that   it  vould not be safe for anyone to begin  the   trip   over   this   very   dangerous  ���������"Northern  route.    Some  told ine that  friends   of   theirs had  been  over tlie  Canadian Pacific Railway, and would  have   starved   to death had thej* not  been   wise   enough  to take their own  provisions; and  I  could not convince  one person, at least, to the opposite.  In fact, the few of us who liave ventured out here have often felt while  en-route that provisions must give out  and the rails stop somewhere short of  the Pacific Coast, but to our delight  we bave found the luxuries and pleasures holding out to the end, and our  only disappointment being that there  were not many thousands of miles  more to enjo}\  I have often said that the Swiss Alps  ���������were not vast in  comparison vvith the  have the testimony of the hardy Swiss  climbers who aie now struggling with  the mere fringes of our vast glacier  system of Alberta. These guides now  say, that tho "Alps aio many times  multiplied in the Canadian Northwest."'  I have t.ilkod with Swiss guides row  in Alberta, with whom I have also  met in the Swiss Alps, and tlieir enthusiasm here was not even dampened  by their love of native land. A guide,  with whom I once stood on the sides  of old Youngfrau ovor GiindenvviUd,  was also with me at the base of the  vast Victorian glacier above Laggan  in Alberta, and he said, "There is  nothing in all the world put together  like this."  My first visit to Laggan and tlie  Lakes of the Clouds was on August  loth, 1803, when, with my family, I  enjoyed our first tour of tin's Northern  route. Tlie pleasure of our trip was  much increased by tlie fact that we  were guests in the private car with  Mr. J. A. Sheffield, superintendent of  palace cars and hotels of the toad,  who, vvith his charming family, was  making his annual ton?' of inspection.  "When on that August day he first  iutioduced mo to the more august  Lake Louise, my sense of tlie beautiful vvas for the first time satisfied.  There liad been then no work of man  to mar the spot, and everything was  in its virgin loveliness. I am now  gl.id that I saw this queen of all lakes  before any tiees were cut or tho Chalet  built, lor I am conscious of hav ing  been there in truly piiin.il and Edenic  conditions.  You leave the train at Laggan. 37  miles west of Banff, and follow  the trail about three miles southward.  Suddenly there bursts upon you a  scene of sucli awful beauty that you  stand uncovered in the eternal silence.  A lake of sjpphiie blue lies enshtined  amid these most tenifie cliffs of every  color and form. Tvvo miles across the  lake theie begins to rise southward  the foretiont of the gieat glaciers,  where Uio ice slants away upward,  until it reaches a depth of possibly  five hundied feet of solid ice, to where  it is fed by continuous avalanches from  the endless gioup of enormous heights  beyond. At the upper end of this  blown, boulder covered glacier, rises  a stem black-wall to-a heightrof-fnliy  half a mile, over which the avalanches  thundei. This wall is five miles away,  but looks to bc but one; unless you  walk it, when it seems a full hundred  miles instead.  Above this black avalanche-wall  theie gradually rises, like the roof of  the universe, the pure white snow-  fields on Mount Victoria, to a height  of ten or twelve thousand feet. Joining with Victoiia in forming this icefield aie the towering height, of  Lefroy, Beehive, White, Niblock, Py-  urn, Castle Cr.igs, and many other  lofty peaks, while to the e.ist an up-  i ight mountain forms a perpendicular  wall of several thousand feet. This  mountain has been called Goat, but  ought not to be so named, as there is  anothei of that name just east of it.  A man might bc willing to die to have  this mountain given to him for liis  monument, as it stands to catch the  morning sun in this sacred spot.  Nowheie in hcr possessions could  there liave been found a grander piece  of Nature's wor*k to have been named  for England's noble Queen, than this  long and silent lange, whose eternal  white robes throw their shadows and  blessing over thc royal Lake Louise,  1 bat i csts like a daughter at her feet.  The shadows here are ever changing,  the lake is usually still as glass, and so  mirrors all these enchanting heights  and ciags in filaeK, and green and  white on its lovely surface. This is  especiall3rtrue of the earliest morning  hour. A picture taken from the shore  near the little Chalet reveals these  reflections   so   pei fectiy   that  as you  tell which side is up. right or wrong.  Indeed,   there is no wrong side here,  for if j'ou turn tho picture again sideways you have a perfect "hour glass,"  and   again   reverse   it   and you get a  "chalice   filled,"   or a cup of blessing.  There  sometimes   hangs    a  peculiar  spiritual atmosphere over the vast expanse that is really indescribable, and  in a moment later it all clears away,  '.so that an  object is so perfectly seen  > far up  Ihe heights as to defy all calculations  of distance.   Distances and  sizo are here impossible of reckoning,  and deceive yon at every turn.   You  seem to lose all power of estimating in  confusion   of   mind.     A person oven  thinks lie can leacli yonder black cliff,  only to bo quickly lost among detiitus  and   fallen   crags   that   hinder   your  eveiy step, and none hut tho most inti epid must venture to know the inner  shrine of this holy place, for if you do,  the   glory   may   lie   turned   into the  "death trap," as the far upper opening  is called, liut yet it can all be enjoyed  in^yiow without the slightest danger  or struggle.   Here one can find all the  world of glacier and crevasse, and that  too with every known foini of moraine  and Alpine wonder; and all this on tho  grandest scale, for these vast fields of  ice hang  in   dreadful silence on the  shoulders of  scores of mighty mountains.     Man is  hut a trifle amid this  grandeur, and to know the most sacred  centre of this, Nature's Sanctuary-of-  Awe,   one   must   be   born   to   hardy  struggles, for without mercy she hurls  puny   man   from   her in mighty contempt. ,  In nearly thirty trips from ocean to  ocean and over many passes, I have  found no other such lake of beauty."  I have seen the choicest lakes of the  Old World, and this is really queen  among tliem all. Lake Como is beautiful, divinely so, but not of the nature  of the beauty seen here. I urged Montague White, the friend of Piiul  Kruger, to visit these lakes, and he  afterwards wrote me, "I have seen  nothing like it in all the world and  your enthusiasm is fully justified."  When the Prince1 of Wales was en  toute East from Vancouver he went  on a shooting excursion, and they  brought the Princess back from Banff  to see these L.ike3 of the Clouds. I  have it direct from one to whom she  told it, that slie said she "had seen  nothing more beautiful on earth," and  I cannot conceive of heaven being  more beautiful. The Prince's party  visited the lakes under the special  care of Mr. ,Tohn Niblock, who, by the  was the gentleman to direct the first  lady that ever entered this bewitching  place, and for him Mount Niblock was  justly named.  If you wish to reconnoitre further  and find moro gems, .take your ponies  again from tlio Chalet on the shore of  Louise and climb another thousand  feet, directly up tlie western cliff along  the sides of Beehive, and find another  little emerald lake known as "Mirror."  This lake has no overground outlet,  but runs through some rock opening  into Louise a thousand feet below.  Still higher above this a goodly climb  biings you to Lake Agnes. !This fine  lake, fringed vvith myriads of beautiful flowers, lies surrounded in a vast  .amphitheatre of mountains towering  still heavenward.  Aud now, if you would engoy to the  full this enchanting place, yon can  climb up, up the sides of Mount Py-  urn above Lake Agnes, and see the  snowy peaks rise one above another  to the east of yon. Mount Beehive is  now almost at your feet among this  wonderful group of lakes, and forests  of mountains and crags stand up to  greet you from all around the horizon,  while from over beyond pur e Lefroy  sweeps Paradise Valley, with mountain peaks by the hundred.  Each time that I have since visited  this  place I have brought with me a  few indeed  _Ofc_-������.

"Yes, I suppose it was mutiny,"  said the young ensign, speaking for  tho first time and blushing as he  withdrew his arm from Edith's  waist.  "Whe-ew! here's a go!" Cloudesley  was about to exclaim, but remembering himself he amended his phrnse-  olog.v, and said, "A very embarrassing situation, yours, sir."  "I cannot regret it!"  "Certainly not! There are laws of  Cod and humanity above aU military law, and such you obeyed, sir!

Tn the meantime tho wounded man  wns carried to the mansion house  and laid upon a cot in one of the  parlors.  Presently Edith heard wheels roll  up to the door and stop. She looked  up. It wa.s the carriage of the surgeon, whom she saw- aiiglit and walk  up tho steps. She went to meet him,  composedly as she could, and conducted him to the door of the sickroom, which he entered. Edith remained in tho hall, softly walking up  and down, and.sometimes pausing to  listen.  After a little, the door opened. It  was only Solomon Wcismann, who  asked for warm water, lint, and a  quantity of old linen. Theso Edith  quickly supplied, 'and then remained  alono in the hall, walking up and  down, and pausing.to listen aa,'(before; one. she hoard a"'-deep shuddering groan, as of one in mortar extremity, and her own heart and  framo thrilled to the sound, and then  all was still as before.  An hour, two hours, passed, and  then tho door opened- again, and  Edith caught a glimpse of the surgeon, with hia shirt sleeves pushed  above his 'olbaws, and a pair of  bloody hands. It was Solomon who  opened the door to ask for a basin  of water, towels and soap, for tho  doctor to wash. Edith furnished  these also.  Half an hour passed, and the door  opened a third time, and tho doctor  himself como/out, fresh an'd smiling.  His countenance anid his manner  .were in ovory respect encouraging.  "Coma into the drawing-room a  moment. If you please. Miss Edith-  I want to speak vri&h you/'- '  Edith desired nothing moro earnestly just at that moment.-  "Well, doctor���������your patient?" she  inquired, anxiously.  "Will do very well! Will do very  well! That is, if ho bc properly attended to, and that is what I wished to speak to you about, Miss  Edith. I have soon you near sick-  bods before this, my dear, and know  that I can better trust you than any  one to whom I could at present apply. I intend to instull .vou as his  nurse, my dear. When a life depends  upon .your care, .vou will waive any  scruples you might otherwiso fool,  Miss Edith, I am sure! You will  have your old maid, .lenny.. to assist you, and Solomon at hand, in  case of nn cinei>viicy. But I intend  to delegate mj> authority, and leavo  my directions with you."  "Yes, doctor, I will do my vcry  host  for your patient."  "1 am sure of that. I am sure of  that."  Edith wutdiod by his cot tlirough  all tho night, fanning him softly,  keeping his chost covered from the  air, giving him his medicino a*T the  proper intervals, and putting drink  to his lips when he needed it. liut  never trusted hcr eyelids to closo  for a moment. Jenny shared hor  vigil by nodding in an easy chair;  and Solomon Woismnnn, a young-  medical .student, by sleeping soundly  on tho wooden settee in the hall. So  passed tho night. After midnight, to  Edith's great relief, his fover began  tn abate, and ho sank into a sweet  sleep. In tho morning Solomon  roused himself, and camo in and relieved Edith's watch, - and attended  to tho wants of tho patient, while  sho went to her room to batho her  faco and weary eyes.  But instead of growing better tho  patient glow worse, and for days  life was despaired of. Tho most  skillful' medical treatment, and tho  most careful nursing scarcely saved  his lifo. 'And even after tho imminent danger was over, it was weeks  beforo ho was able to be lifted from  the   bed   to   lho  sofa.  In the meantime, Throg, who was  also treated by the doctor recovered.  Ho took quite an alToctionato leave  of tho young ensign, and with an appearance of great friendliness and  honesty, promised to interest himsolf at headquarters in behalf of the  young officer. This somehow filled  Edith with a vague distrust, and  dark foreboding, for which she could  neither account, nor excuse herself,  nor yet shake od. Thorg had been  exchanged, and he joined his regiment after its return from Washington City, and beforo it sailed from  tho shores of America  Weeks passed, during whicli the invalid occupied the'sofa in his room  ���������and Edith was his sole nurse. And  then Commondore Waugh, with his  wife, servants and caravan returned  to Luckenough.  The. old soldier hart bcon "posted  up," he said, relative to all that had  transpired in his absence.  Thero ������ere no words, ho declared,  to express his-'admiration of Edith's  '.'heroism."  It was in vain that Edith assured  liim tliat she had not been heroic at  all���������that thc preservation of Luckenough hnd been flue rather lo tho  timely succor of the college boys  than to her own imprudent resolution. It did no good���������the old man  was determined to look upon his  nieco ns a heroine worthy to stand  by the side of Joan of Arc.  "For," said he. "was it not the  soul of a heroine that enabled her  to stay and guard the house; and  would the college company over have  como to tho rescue of these old walls  if they hnd not heard ihat she had  resolutely remained to guard them  and was almost alone in the house?  Don't tell me! Edith is the star  maiden of old St. Mary's, and I'm  proud of her! She is worthy to bo  my niece and heiress! A true descendant of Marie Zelcnski, is she!  And I'll tell you what I'll do.  Edith!" ho said, turning to her, "I'll  reward you. my dear! I will. I'll  marry you to Professor Grimshaw!

(To  be Continued.)  PREPARING SPONGES.  Pass  Through  Many  Processes Before They Are  Sold.  As soon as the sponges aro  brought aboard they nro thrown in  heaps on deck near the scuppers,  whero tho barefooted sailors tramp  and work out, the ooze; then, strung  on lines, they nro soused over the  side, and trail overboard some ton  hours during the night.

Advice should    bo well shaken before boing taken.  THE DRAFT HORSE.  Many fanners havo attended our  fairs and soon modern draft horses  on exhibition. The up-to-date draft  liorse is one that stands close to tho  ground with short legs and broad  base. The feet ^arc well apart, with  space enough for another loot of the  same size to be placed between thcm.  Tho buck of this animal will bo  somewhat shorter than that . :>f lhe  speed horse. It is with the hind  legs tlmt ho propels himself and  thus it can ho easily seen that,  since������the collar is on the shoulder,  that the whole weight of the load  is drawn by the back. T_croforo.it  must be short, broad and woll  muscled.  Thc shoulder of this horso is long  and well-shaped, so as to gi'iV a  good base to thu collar. It should  be moro nearly perpendicular than  that of the speed animal. Howover,  sloping, shoulders are often found in  our best draft horses. The hocks  of this horso will show rather a  narrow angle, bemuse it is by this  that a greater leverage is given and  ho is able to move heavy loads. Tho  body is massive; 1<- ��������� sot, ample,  very muscular and cylindrical. The  hors. should havo solid, large,  broad bonos and limbs; thc latter  aro well formed and properly placed  under his  body.  Ho should hnvo large, healthy  well-formed hoofs, heels woll-separ-  atert, frog strong, healthy, nnd qjuite  hard; good phj'&iogi.i u y, plenty of  stylo and action, ardor and endurance. He must have .- short, rather  straight pastern in order to do the  heavy work required 'I him. His  weight should bo in tho neighborhood 'oi a ton. If hi- .-��������� i fhs a little more or littlo less, but is good  otherwise, hc will not be long'Without a purchaser. The animal cun  be of any draft breed. Each has  special characteristics, which commend thom to their admirers. It is  not necessary at,(liis timo to favor  one and condemn the others; for all  breeds sell alike when the animals  are of the right kind. Wo say that  it is quite easy to describe tho ani-  nian we would like to produco, but  to produco him  is unother thing.  A short time ago any horse' that  would weigh 1400 or 1500 pounds,  was awkward, big headed, lazy and  good for no particular work, was  classed as a draft horse by tho layman. To-day in many-places this  same notion-prevails. * If we will  become acquainted with tho animal  many formers praise and force'upon  thc market, we* will find thoy aro not  draft horses, "neither aro they road  or coach-horses,, but quite likely-a  lot of .misfits that belong,to no particular class, -and for which . there'  is no market.".'. The farmer should  learn to produce,Tth'at which the people  want and the market demands.  UNPROFITABLE' BOARDERS.  So much has been written on tho  subject of unprofitable cows that it  would seem unnecessary to say anything further, but it is still true  that unprofitable cows are being  kept by many farmers, says Mr.  Lester "Williams." " They not only do  not pay for their keeping, but they  are constantly running their owners  in debt. The best thing to do with  such cattle is to turn them into beef  as soon as possible antl sell them to  the first buyer.. These poor hoarders can be told from profitable cows,  not so much by the size of their udders as by tlie use of scales and the  Babcock test. Weighing the milk  four or five times in the covr.se of a  year will not tell thc story. Each  cow's milk should be weig-hed once  or twice a week. I find twice a  week thc most satisfactory; somo  dairj-men consider once a week sufficient. Milk should be tested onco  or twice a month and each cow's  feed should be weighed and charged  to her at the market price.  , This record should be kept for a  year. I   have      a  smooth,   planed  IJoartt^hec.kecrolt'for each cow ITang^"  ing in my barn. In this way I  know at the end' of tho year how  much milk each cow gives and how  much butter her milk will make if  the cream i.s all saved by thc use  of a good centrifugal separator. By  deducting tho cost of keeping frum  tho receipts of .cream or butter, you  have thc profit or loss on each cow.  Your herd may all return a profit,  but more likely you will find that  you hnvi> somo that you are keeping  at a loss.  'I think T hear someone say that  this will muke a good deal of extra  work to take care of a herd of cows  for a j'ear, to say nothing about  raising something to feed them. I  want some profit over and above tho  cost of keeping,-* to pay ine for my  labor. It costs no more to keep  a cow that will make 800 pounds  or more of butter in a year than  ono lhat will not make more than  150 pounds. Any cow to do hcr  best must have what she needs of a  well-balanced   ration.  THE MOLTING SEASON.  The severest strain upon the system of domesticnted fowls in thnt  known as molting. Under purely natural conditions thi.s epoch in (ho  lifo of a. bird or fowl follows close  upon (lie season of casting off Iheir  yt ung lo depend upon iheir own resources. With domesticnted fowls  Ihe laws of nature liave been prevented, owing to the changes  wrought by n certain defined system  of breeding, feeding nnd housing for  some fixed purpose. To shorten, the  molting season. maintain good  health and n quick resumption of  egg production hns been tlie object  of much thought and practical experimenting.  Of lhe many cxperimenty no one  method excited greater fcitere.st than  that of Van Dresser,  nono that was  Remarkable  MOSf    -    -   .������     a    .

During the first half, of  August the amount of feed is'.reduced lo one-fourth of a ration and no  mash is fed for two weeks. This  nearly or quito stops lho enliro egg  yield, reduced -tho fowls in llosh so  that when tho full feeding starts  in about August 20, tho liberal feeding starts the fowls to gain and tho  addition of a light feed of sunflowers  promotes a rapid and even molt.  For four consecutive seasons this  method has beon faithfully adhered  to by the writer with ever increasing approval and gratitude. No tonics are needed. Clean housing, well  balanced ' graiiii foods, sharp grit,  charcoal dust baths, shade and pure  cold water in vessels kept well  cleansed are the only requisites.- A  tablespoonful of sulphur each alternate morning in tho mash given to  each 25 hens and-one pint oil meal  on  tho other mornings is helpful.  LATE SUMMER    CARE  OR  COWS.  Cows . require good feed at all-  times of the year. If pustures are  inclined to bo short, ns tho majority aro during July and August,  then somo supplemental feed should  be grown to supply the deficiency.  It is too late now to think of  growing anything this year to help  out short pastures. Farmers must  learn to plan six or nine months  ahead. Hut if short pastures do  come, the farmer can cut up field or  sweet corn and'* do somo soiling.  While that is hard work and stakes  too much time, it is better than to  let a good herd run dry. A mill-  flow lost is practically gone forv  the year. Tho best way, of courso,  is to have the cows dry during the  hot months. liut that is not always possible. Silage is tho cheapest feed- to --supplement short pastures, but thoso who have none must,  do, something elsc.    . >*. >  "About,the only relief for the man  who has not-planned to have*'- feed  for just this very time, is forhim'to*  feed some grain at. thc barn,--or cut  up .green clover, sweet corn or - fielH-  corn. 1 ; , - ,    *   _   ���������  One of the most noticeable thinga  on most overy. farm is the poor condition of the pasture. Men who do.  not food- silage in winter aro in a  hurry to get tho cows on grass. Cattle are hungry for succulent feed,  and they manage to keep tho -grass  short from the very start. This  causes tho grass crop - to be short  at thc season when it is not making  growth, and as o result tho cows  half starve. ' When fall rains revive  the dormant grass, the cows are  poor. It takes all the fall to get  thom back into condition again. It  does not pay to overstock, or to  nish cattle on spring pastures beforo  they can" support the herd nicely.  This is a strong argument in favor  of the silo for both winter and summer  feeding.-'"   *   PERSONAL POINTERB.  Interesting.,  Gossip   About    Some  Well-Known People.

Processes by Which Tons  of Blossoms Give Up, Their  Odors.'  In tho southern part of France,  which borders on the Mediterranean:  and extends between tho Alps and  tho Rhone, tho culturo of flowers has  developed into a great industry for  tho manufacture of perfumes. "lithe department of tho Alpes-Mari-  times tho porfumery industry has ���������  probably mado greater strides than  in any other portion of France."  says M. Georgo Cnyes in tho Monde  Moderne of Paris. "Horo aro moro  than sixty factories, tho total product of which is valued ut mora  than four million dollnrs per year,  and over fifteen hundred persons aro  constantly :employed, without counting the multitude of harvest hands.  Tho moro important harvests aro  thoso of the roso, 4,000,00b pounds,  tho orango flower 5,000,000 pounds  tho violet 000,000 -pounds, tho jns-  mino 1,200,000 pounds, the tuberose  300,000 pounds, the geranium 70,-  000 pounds and * the cassia 300,000  pounds. If wo considor tho fact that  all these flowers are weighed without their steins it is evident that  tho quantity is enormous, and this  fact will bo still better appreciated  when wo say that in order to obtain two pounds of roso leaves no  less than a thousand llowers required, whilo a thousand bunches of  violets, each with a diameter of  more than a foot, furnish only forty  pounds of flowers."  METHOD   IJ [STILL ATION.  Flowers all go through a preliminary treatment of being placod in a  cold room, and plants such as lavender, thyme, spike, mint, roots  such ns orris, fruits and woods, are  passed through cutting and macerating machines. Aftor this has been  done the perfume is extracted, the  principal methods being distillation,  maceration, cnileurago and by tho  uso of dissolvents. Distillation is  only employed when tho perfume Js  not injured by heat or sleam. Tn  this case the llowers and water a"ro  put in a groat alembic and heated.-  After tho water begins to boil it disorganizes thc ..vegetable cells containing Lho perfume, and this is carried by tho steam through (ho worm  and condensed. Thero is thus obtained a mixturo of water and psr- ,  fume nnd it is merely necessary now  to separate the* two.

There is always more or less speculation as to tho permanence of contemporary fiction, and wo note that
Professor Shailer Mathews has rec-
���*��� ently expressed the. opinion that
many of the hovels now .being turned
put. will be; lasting. -.What shall, we
take as a basis for : a judgment?
Moro popularity is, or course, not a
proof of excellence. But excellent
books may bo popular, as "David
Copperflelct" certainly was. We havo
read an old literary judgment, however, to the effect that one of
Charles lever's stories wns worth all
that Dickens ever wrote. And if
Dickens's sales were largo," "The
Wido Wido Woi Id" is said to havo
eold 500,000 copies bntween 1850
and I869, and "Quecchy." by the
samo author, Susan Warner, was in
great demand also. Tliere is, moreover, still enough interest in theso
books to keep them going. Popularity and to a considerable extent
the .est of time are both favorable
to  them.
Nevertheless it is probable that
"David Copperfield" will be read
���when "The Wide, Wide World", is
forgotten, and it is probable, also,
that the latter work will not last as
'long as "Vanity Fair" or "Adam
Bede." In instituting comparisons
general references to authors aro not
very helpful, but-something is to be
learned, by pitting book ugainst
book. There 'are critics who say
���that Thomas Hardy is the greatest
of thc living writers of English fiction and that "The Return of thc
Native" is his greatest story. This,
moreover, is unquestionably a .book
of "exceptional worth. But people
wiiyfardly recur to it as-they do to
such an inexhaustible mine of- hu.
mor  and  pathos  as  "Copperfield."
There is a bigness about some     of

is  often  ridiculed.     It  is  a bigness,

Tho risk the trapper is called upon
to run does not end with the caging
of the quarry. Truo, the actual poril
of the hunt is at an end, but he has
yet to get his merchandise to market
or to the purchaser, which is not
always a matter of caso. The variations of climate tho animals encounter during a voyage and their liability to succumb under unfavorable
conditions make it imperative" that
no chanco of transportation shall be
lost during the favorable sea'sons.
Tho obvious remedy against loss,
both at the port and on the sea,
would be insurance, .but it is a cargo that no insuranco company will
tako risks on. Consequently, tho
best thing to do is personally ~ to
interview the captain and givo him
an interest in tho selling value of
tho cargo���say, of a third or a half.
This may scorn a lot to give away,
but it is wiser to pocket a reduced
profit than sustain a total  loss.,      .
It is bocauso of such difficulties as
these and of- the "personal" danger run
by 'the trapper that tho prices of hig
game for live delivery run high.
Tigers are worth anything from U50
to ��100, leopards from ��50 to ��80,
elephants from ��100 to ��200, whilo
a rhinoceros or a giralto tops the
list as profitable bags, selling at
from' ��800 to ��1,000 each. Lions,
however, are a drug on tho market
and worth comparatively nothing, being such good brooders -in captivity;
nor is there'much money in bears."

Small monkeys are easy to catch;
they can be"1 caught with birdlimo or
a bottle, and by means of thc latter
I have captured hundreds. The bottle must not bc too wide in thc neck
and--it must be baited inside with
swcctstutT or a damp ��� rag sweetened
with sugar; then it is fastened by a
string to a tree. The monkey comes
along, scents thc sweetmeat and
promptly inserts his hand in the
bottle. He gets a handful of bait,
then tries to ,withdraw his bulging,
fist. This is-impossible, but he
would_ rather be captured than relinquish ~the tasty morsel, and he lac-
cordingly is.

"vThe term rheumatism has been,:
and is even yet,: so loosely employed,
not'only by the general public, but
by physicians themselves, that it is
impossible to determine Just what
is meant by it.     "
Almost, any painful alTection of tho
muscles or joints, whether acute or
chronic, is popularly tunned rheumatism. Certainly two or three distinct diseases, and pei hups moro,
aro thus confused, but thero seems
to be one painful affection of muscles
and joints, chronic in character and
not pi oducing distoilion of tho
limbs, which is distinct from tho
other rheumatic troubles, and wnich
is called chronic rheumatism
The tioubic may come on after
one or several previous attacks of
acute inflammatory iheiimnlism, tho
ln-st of these never entirely disap-
penung. More or less pain, stiffness
and swelling persist in onc or more
of the joints, or the disease may
come gradually without anv preceding acute attack. This is tho more
common  way.
A tendency to sulTcr from this
form of rheumatism seems .lot infrequently to be inherited, for it is
seen to run in families. Exposure
to cold and wot is a common causo
of the disease. Only one, or at
most two or* three joints are usually
affected, and the changes in these
are not vcry noticeable The chief
symptoms are pain, especially on attempted motion, and stiffness of tho
joint. Pressure, particularly at certain points, also causes pain. Some-
tunes manipulation of tho joint will
give rise to a grating noise 01 cracking. There may be some swelling of
the affected joint, but this is seldom
very marked,**- and. it is sometimes
only simulated by a wasting .of thg-
surrounding muscles. ���;*���-? **
If proper treatment is not prompt
and persistent there is danger of
fibrous adhesions forming which re-

or one which can bo loosened only

A strange peculiarity of chronic,
rheumatism in its early stages before adhesions have formed, is that
although pain ls at first increased

Steadily Increasing Both
Men and Women. -
Some curious statistics relating to
suicides have 'just been published by
the Government Statistical Deiiait-
ment at Berlin.- From these statistics" it appears that during, the past
few years thc number of suicides has
been steadily increasing, both among
men and women, although so far the
men exceed thc women in the proportion of four to one. The report
shows that suicides among school
children aro largely increasing, especially just befoie and after
examination. In one year 69 children under 15 yeais of age took their
lives The age when most suicides
occur among men is between 50 and
GO, and among womon between? 20
and 30. Most suicides occur in thc
spring, and fewest in December.
In nine-tenths-of thu cases .the me-
tods adopted are drowning, hanging,
and shooting There aro comparatively few instances of the use of
poison, which is thc means chosen,
chiefly by women. Women, says the
report, show an inevitable dislike to
select any mode of death which
might  disfiguio  their faces.
Among mon it is need or pecuniary
embarrassment which drives most to
take their own lives. This fact also
plays an important part with women, but in addition a strong body of
them aie urged ty suicide because of
umcquitcd  affection.
Itj is rather curious *that many of

what he actually said:  "It was    my

The assistant editor made a trip this  week to the Silver Dollar group and  was much impressed with the bustle  and activity which was apparent.  Eighteen men have been working  there all summer while a gang of men  with teams of horses have been hauling machinery to the property. The  hauling was done with great difficulty  as the trail is both narrow and steep,  and for the zeal and determination  displayed in getting large .nd heavy  pieces of machinery over such a trail  much credit is due MivE. J. Bran ford  under whose supervision the work  was conducted.  During the past summer a considerable amount of work has been accomplished.     A sawmill  was first placed  on the ground and the  timbers necessary   for   the - quartz -mill and other  buildings cut.     The first storey of the  quart/, mill is now up and it is expected that everything will be covered in  b.fore snow flies.   The erection of the  mill and installation of machinery are  in charge of  Messrs. Geo. Lemon and  A. G.   Street  respectively and could  not be in better or more painstaking  hands.  The  stated  capacity of  the quartz  mill is 130 tons por day of 2-1 hours  and the power for driving-the mill  will be'supplied through the medium  of a'Pelton,.water wheel-which will  derive .. its.-t.niotive power from' water  taken ,froin;Mphawk creekand through  a flume.several hundred feet hi length.
