The Scottish concert givon on Thursday evening last under thn auspices o'  tlie Willing Workers of St. Andrew's  Church, was a huge success, the Opoia  House being crowded  to the doors.  The programme was a splendid 'one  reflecting great credit upon those who  were instiumental in its production  The Willing Workers, who were very  prettily dressed in whito wilh tartan  shawls drooping gracefully from their  shoulders and glengan ies set jauntilv  upon their heads, opened  the concert  by singing "The Hielupdman's Toast."  Altneda. and Robert Armstrong, in an  instrumental,   caught    tlie    popular  taste with some flue old Scottish leels  and  strathspeys.     Miss  Edna Bruce  acquitted herself creditably in her rendering of "Hame cam our Goodman r������t  E'en," and wtCs obliged to respond to  an encore.   Mrs. Creelman in her singing   of  "Caller  Herrin,"  must have  touched, some  hidden-chord Jn the  hearts of ''her audience for they applauded enthusiastically untii~she reappeared   to  sing   "Bonnie Dundee."  Mr.  Humphreys, the 'old   Revelstoke  favorite, kindly took the place of Mr.  Gilleland who was indisposed through  cold,   and  snug   "The1! March of  the  Cameion Men," responding to ari-encore with "The Dear Homeland."   After  an   interval  of  five minutes Mr.  Alfonso De Feo reopened the concert  hy a pianoforte solo which seemed to  be  much appreciated.     Mr. Murray,  dressed in  Highland costume, danced  the Highland Fling and Sword Dance  to the  intense" satisfaction of  those  present.     McKenzie's playing of  the  pipes called forth tremendous applaiibe  and Mut tay was' not allowed to retire  till he had danced himself tired. "Jock  o' "Hazledean was splendidly sung by  Mrs. McFayden. ��������� This was Mrs. Mc-  Fayden's first appeal ance befoi e a Revelstoke audience and she won her way.

TV  A brief official announcement was  made tonight .that' the cabinet had  resigned, that the King had accepted  the resignation's of his ministers and  that Sir Henry-jCampbell-Bannerman  had been sent-.for.' It would appear  now that the entile programme has  been cut and dried for some time and  it is even" probable that the libeial  leader has' already completed his cabinet, though thisN like everything else  in connectioriwith Biitish officialdom,  must be left to surmise.  *   . * v T u:Vi. .

One was Dr. Edward Bdwes,  who enjoyed the best practice in' the  camp, and John McKane,' a leading  mine-o"wner and stock" broker.- - Both  were very popular and both invested  largely in mines there without satisfactory results. A couplo of years ago  they weie'attracted by ^ news-^of a  great gold find at, Death .Valley,  Nevada. They 'followed the multitude  and secured claims which, upon being  worked, yielded enormously. ' Dr. I  Bb*Wes and John McKane are now  very lich, and tliey were such wholehearted, generous men when they  hadn't much of tbis world's goods that  everyone who knew them in tho Rossland days is delighted to hear of "their  good fortuno now. In the new district  known as Bulldog they have 'claims  that aie estimated to be worth $15,000-  000 and which are not on the market  at that figure.

The bulletins are gotten  up in pamphlet form, with about thu  same size pages as the minister of  mines' report, and the intention undoubtedly is to keep the matter standing and at the end of each tUcal year  run tiie whole scries into a book'.  The No. 1 bulletin, which Is-accompanied by a very nice .nap is a desci iption of the Windy Arm camp by-Pro-,  vincial Mineralogist William Fleet  Robinson The bulletin comes to hand  a very opportune moment, us it brings  infoimation regarding the strikes in  the new camp right up-to'-date, and  gives leaders a chance to gct.'accurate  knowledge of just what is going on.  No. 2 bulletin is an-account of the  mineral locations, of the\Big Bend  country^by Ilerhert Carmichael. It  is historical as well as miaeralogical  and is quite an interesting^- piece of  lierature.

R. may make  Revelstoke or some other interiorpoint  a wholesale centre and extend Calgary's rates fui ther west, so taking all  Vancouver's little trade with the interior away from her? a World representative asked a prominent wholesaler the other day.  "It has the real C. P. R. ring," he  replied, "though Mr. Greer's "attitude  seems to be more pronounced than that  of Mr. Bosworth, fourth vice-president  of tbe O. P. R., whose despatch, as  published iri The World, was much  more temperate in tone. -The chief  feature of it is its fiat contradiction of  what Mr. Greer said himself on Thursday last at the meeting of the shippers,  when he declared that it - would be  very discourteous to interfere in the  freight rates until the railway commission had been heard from. The C.  P. R. hus refused to reply "to us until  the commission is heard from but,  according to Mr. Greer, it is quite  likely to change the B. O rates entirely, to suit itself, without waiting for  the commisbion at all. However, we  have not by any means exhausted our  resources and we may play a .card  that will trump any such lead by the  company.���������Vancouver WorW.

Of course, Joyce i.s  a very pretty girl nnd till that, nnd  I've always known that .she wus fond1  of me, nnd when old Murlow nmde  such n pile of money in mining  shares 1 .snid to myself, 'lleorge, niy  boy, go in und win.' "  "And you went in nnd won?"  "Jumped ul ine, my boy. Welcomed  rne witli open arms nnd ull that sort  of thins."  "And when is the wedding to tako  place?"  "Oh, in a month or two. I'm  not going* to lie myself up in a hurry. 'I'm off to Scotland for some  shooting  first."  There were bul half-a-do7.cn members in the smoking-room of tho lly-  croft Club, nnd ns they nil listened  with some amusement to tho 'jolf-  conceit and complacency wilh which  George Canham announced his engagement to Joyce Murlow, there  was not one of them who did not  fee]  inclined  to  kick  him.  '1 he conversation was interrupted  by the entrance of another member.  "Halloa, boys! Heard the news?"  "So: anything startling?"  ''l.uther; John Marlow has come  a cropper."  "What?"  "An absolute smash. Liabilities  something like a hundred and fifty  thousand. Played for a big coup nn  a rising market, but the Beckslein  gang were against him. Prices fell  wilh a crash and wiped him out."  Amid a painful silence they nil  looked at George Canham. White to  the lips, hc hnd risen from his scat.  "Oh, I'm sorry. Cnnhnm; I did not  know you were tliere. This will be  rather a knock for you, won't it?"  "Uy George.' I'll see about Hint.  I'm not going lo bo made a fool of  by John Marlow. He'd no right to  accept my proposal for his daughter  when he knew thnt he was on '.ho  verge  of bankruptcy."  "My dear Canham, three days ago  Marlow was n rich man, and no  more contemplated ruin thnn lho  Dunk  of England."  "T can't help that; if he's gono  under Tin going to tako jolly care  that L'm not dragged down with  him. T'm not rich enough to support the whole family.  "Don't do anything rash."  "Hash! What rot! I'm off now  to settle it at onco. I'll let thom  see that I'm not going to be fooled  with."  In a white heat of righteous indignation at whnt he termed "Murlow *s   duplicity,':   he   entered   a  hnn-  - som ami droio to Berkley Square.  John Marlow, a strong, handsome-  looking man of about forty-live  years of age, received him in thc library.  - "Ah. Canham, T am glad to sco  you. 1 was Just about to send round  to your place."  "But, I say, you know, what's all  this, in the paper to-night? It isn't  true, is  it?"  "I am very sorry to say that it is.  Thc Decl-stein lot were too much for  me, and I'm afraid I lose everything."  "But it's not right, you know; it's  precious hard  lines,  1  call  it."  "It is ihe fortune of war, or. rather, the .Stock Exchange. Up today., down  to-morrow.':  "Oh,   I  wasn't   thinking    of    that.  It's  rough  on me,  I mean."  "    "On you?"  "Ves; you allowed ine to be engaged to your daughter, knowing all  the time that in a few days you  might bc a  beggar."  "X see: and will that make any  difference between you and Joyce? I  understood you  to say that you had  Joyce, we have lost out* monoy, and  I am sorry to say we have also lost  tho respect which this gentlemnn had  for it."  "Whnt do you mean, dad?"  "I mean tliat since our fortune has  gone Mr. Georgo Cnnhnm declines to  associate his name with ours."  For  somo  moments   Joyce  Mnrlow  stood in silence���������like a beautiful pale  statue.  "Js���������is  this  true?"  "Well,   you   know,   I   don't      want  to���������"  "Deny it! deny it! 1*1 mo hear  from your own lips that it is untrue. J havo nlwuys looked upon  you ns (i true mnn, a mnn to bo  proud of, a man to love, und I gave  you my love freely and unreservedly.  1 cherished n regard for you,  and placed you first In my heart.  Ilnve 1. been mistaken? Are iny father's words true?"  "I always knew that you thought  a lot of mo? Joyce, nnd X think  we'd have got on capitally  together,  but "  "But now that I would bo coming  lo you empty-handed you find that  your lovo for mo wns merely affection  for my gold."  "1 don't wunt you to fret about  it,  Joyce."  ' .'"ret ahout you! Had vou boen  taken suddenly from mo without this  revelation T would have been heart-  weary with grief, but if I shod a  tear now it will be one of joy. When  1 think about you in tho futuro, if  I ever do, it will bo to laugh ��������� to  laugh wilh delight at having escaped tho machinations of a fortune-  hunting knave."  "Oh, 1 say, you know���������"  "A truo friend is a mainstay in  tho time of trouble, and not an evil  thing that, comes hot-foot to increase our sorrow. I only ask one  thing, and that is that I may never  see your face again.     Now go."  Mr. Georgo Canham, with ruffled  dignity, seemed prepared for argument, but Mr. Marlow inserted liis  hand down the back of his collar,  lifted him to the door, and thrust  him, not too gently,   into  the hall.  For all Joyce's brave words before  George Canham, it must not bo  thought that she did not suiter. She  hnd loved him with all the passion  of a first affection, nnd his sudden  appearance in his true colors wounded her deeply, hut"for nil that she  put on n brave face befoi'o hor father.  The next few weeks were full of  anxiety and worry; everything had  gone in the crush and ihe house, in  ISerkley Square was sold up. Thon  an offer of employment came to Mr.  Marlow.  "Joyce, my dear, J have hnd tin  offer to go out to Australia prospecting for gold. _t is a good chance  and I think I must take it. The lifo  would be too rough for you, so 1  think you hud better go to your  aunt's place nt Little Willoway and  stav until I enn .end for you. .She  writes that she will bo glnd to havo  you, and T think it will lie better, if  you take her name for n  time."  After further conversation, so it  wns settled. John Marlow sailed  for Australia nnd Joyce found herself established -with Mrs". Hit-field,  her widowed aunt, nt Little Willowny.  I.Irs. Birficld, afthotigh fairly well  ofi, had found time hanging heavily  on hcr hands, nnd being of an energetic nature sought lo make it fly  morc rapidly by opening a small  general shop, to whiclv in duo course  thc post-oflicc was added: and it  was something of an event in the  villajM! whon Joyce Marlow came to  assist in its management. She did  not care very much for her occupation, it is true, but it kept her from  thinking.  Tho Frincipul landowner round Lit-  aro tho only ono in the world I enro  about,  except my father."  "Then why "  "1 will tell you. A fow months  ago wo were very rich, and then  misfortuno overtook us and my father failed. I have resolved never  to marry until all his liabilities are  paid off and our fortune is rebuilt.'*  "But whero is your father? I have  more  mono;/  than  T know  what.     to  do with.    Let me "  "Ah, no; ho would never do that,,  although it i.s kind of you to suggest It. Ho is abroad nt present,  and 1 havo overy confidence that he  will   achieve  his   object."  "Then if T ask you ngnin when  your father returns successful, what  will your answer be?"  Sho looked up nt him shyly, her  lips half parted In a hnppy smile,  nnd ho. rend his answer iu her eyes.  With a lniiph of joy ho took her lu  his onus and sealed the compact with  a lover's  kiss.  As the time went on Godfrey Reid  and his sister made preparations for  their usual stay in London during  tho season, and wished Joyce to ac-  compnny lhem, but this she declined  to  do.  "I do not wish to seo London  again until my father returns, and  1 shall be much happier here looking  after the house and tho servants, if  you will allow me."  To Godfrey, of course, hcr slightest wish was law, and 'ho left her at  Little Willoway, reserving to himself  the right to run down and sec her  occasionally.  So Godfrey and Muriel .throw  themselves into the gaieties of the  London season, and were soon sur-  rounded-'by a number, of friends and  acquaintances, and amongst the latter Mr. George Canham contrived lo  mako himself particularly ag*reeable.  And, ns tho season progressed, the  outcome of Mr. Canham's attentions  to Muriel was recorded by Godfrey  iu tho postscript of a lotlor to  Joyce:���������  "Almost forgot to tell you that  Muriel has done it, and fi....l it up  to  marry Mr.  George  Canham."  Godfrey Reid and Cnnhnm wore in  the Uycroft Club one afternoon, and  Canham was rending  the  "Times.':  "Heard about this new gold-mine  they've found at Wnllyboiro? Seems  to be one or the richest over discovered."  Ilenrd   about   it?"   answered   Godfrey.     "1     should     think  so.   seeing  that 1 am  half owner of it."  "You?"  "(���������'act. Got a cable to-duy lo say  that   everything  was   fixed   up. It  happened this wny. You remember  a* man named John. Marlow, who  went smash some time ago? Well,  he'd been vcry kind to me in many  ways after my father died, and helped :ne wiih my investments,. When  he went down I offered lo help him,  but all he would allow mc to do  was to send him to Australia prospecting, nnd if hc found anything J  was to finance it on half shares."  "And John Marlow?"  "Owns one-half, and is likely to  become a  very rich  man."  Georgo     Canham's      cupidity     was  moused.     Why  had  ho  beon  .such     a   _  fool   with   regard   to   Joyce  Marlow? j water fora'  He wns not much  in love with Mu  not forgot, ln our joy, that it is a  limo of sorrow for Muriel.

I became a breeder of  ; registered cattle simply because I  liked them. I early realized that cattle must bo cared for well if we wore  lo  mako  a living out  of them.  I well remember tho first wheat  bran I ever fed. I went 15 miles after it, our nearby towns not keeping  such luxuries for cows. I was not  satisfied with tho results and disposed of the native cows. Over 30 years  ago I got a registered Jersey bull.  Ho was out of a cow giving 40 lbs.  milk per day. Too many farmers  chango their minds about tho proper  way to grade up a herd. I remember selling a Jersey bull to a party  who used liim, getting a lot of splendid daughters. He wanted to get  more milk and put in a Holstein to  breed his herd. When the Guernseys  did so well -ho wanted tho breed and  got them. As a consequence to-day  he has a lot of "ring-streaked and  speckled animals no better than ho  started with years ago.  BUILDING UP THE HERD.  I used the���������registered bull for a few  years, but tho one-half, three-quarters  and seven-eighths grades did not take  on the color    and   shape of Jerseys  fast enough to suit me, though thoy  wero an improvement on their - dams  as  buttcr cows'.   I wanted somo registered, cows.    * I lacked  the  money,  but finally I got a! couple heifers.     I  had to be satisfied with cheap   ones,  but it gave me'experience.

With this latter rig,  we  hav������   been     making    butter  for     14  veal's. , ,v  Our butter product of 325 pounds  from tho poorly kept native 'cow  gradually grew with experience in  feeding and better bleeding. With  the improvements for getting fhe  cream out of the milk, our buttcr  product soon -reached 300 pounds of  buttcr per cow. Wo have not incrcas-  the product much during -the last ten  years as I don't believe "it pays, at  least in n breeding herd, to force  cows much higher.

On the 26th, 27th and 28th we e_-  1 plored "Gopher Bridge" and the main  cave, entering the latter through "The  Canyon" and "Entrance No. 2." This  exploration consisted of a complete  survey of all passages, not heretofore  reported by me as surveyed, and of  flashlight photographs of some of the  attractive features of the interior. On  the 29th we broke camp and returned  to the Glacier House ou foot.  THE TRAIL.  A very easy trail for riding or walking can be made from the Glacier  House to the cave by way of The Loop  and Koss Peak water tank. The  length of this trail would be about  five and_one half miles. It would  have not only an- easy grade but a  location tbat brings to view in a new  light some of the grandest scenery of  this famous part of thc Selkirks. This  feature of itself would make it a very  popular trail even though there were  no caves at the other end of it.. The  trail should be constructed on the  sloping ground above the river. It  would then connect with an old trail,  used during the construction of the  Canadian     Pacific   Railway,    which   passes_ through���������a_-Very__ heaviJx_tim^  bered forest lying in the ravine to the  right of Cougar Mountain. At a  point about one quarter of a mile before reaching Cougar Creek this old  trail should be left, ahd a new trail  made up the ravine of Cougar Creek  to the cave on well selected ground  consistent with easy grades.  On arriving at the cave tbe magnificent assemblage of balsam firs with  their spire-like forms, shown in photograph No. 21, welcome the visitor as  stately hostesses. In the winter they  deck themselves with the most dainty  enowy drapery.  When the visitor turns homeward  from the cave the view shown in  photograph No. 22 greets him. Ross  Paek is in clear view at the right and  tbe Great Glacier at the left, with  Cougar Creek ravine in the center,  down which the trail leads him with  an ever changing panorama of the  most beautiful of the Seikirks continually before him. When passing  The Loop again, at the very spot  where on his way to the cave the view  Bhown in photograph No. 19 met his  eyes, the view in No. 23 greets him,  with Sir Donald at the right.  THE EXPLORATION.  Tbe "Gopher Bridge" was  first  explored.     An entrance was effected by  Mr. Deutschman during the summer,  first,   by   crawling   through    a  very  narrow   passage   in   the   old  bed   of  Cougar  Creek,  marked   on   the map  herewith submitted as "Old Channel," j  and second  by   blasting away some  fallen rock at a  point  noted  on the  map as  "Gopher   Bridge Entrance."  We entered by tbe latter opening. This  is a very unique cave by  itself.     The  characteristic   water-carved   walls  of  white and   grey   marble,   such as are  found in "Entrance No. 1", and  described in my report of June 8th, 1905,  are everywhere to  be  seen.     An  additional feature, however, is here to be  found.   In many places the change of  (he limestone into marble is not com  plete.     The parts  of the rocks not  fully changed  stand  out as nodules,  while the marble  between   them  has  been dissolved and  eroded to an unusual degree, thus giving the walls  a  strange picturesque appearance.  " From a geological  standpoint the  formation   under    "Gopher    Bridge"  shows, in a' manuer rarely to be found  in   surface   exposures,    the    various  stages   of   transition -of   tbe original  limestone into the present marble by  the heat process called metamorphosis.  There are evidences also of  cavities,  comparatively small  it is  true, that  existed in the original  beds of limestone and  which   were   subsequently  filled with   pure   carbonate   of lime.  During   the   metamorphosis   of   the  limestone this filling also was changed  to white crystalline  marble.      Some  chips and nuggets of quartz are  to bc  seen imbedded in the  filling evidenc-  ng that  they  were carried  into the  cavity by water during'the  process of  the lime   accumulation.     Shrinkage  cracks are everywhere to be  found in  the ��������� grey   and   white   marble, which  were formed during its early  solidification into limestone and  afterward  filled with   pure   carbonate, of   li'n-.e.  Tbey now   show   as   scams   of white  maible inserted in the rocks at various  angles to their bedding faces.  Cougar Cieek now enters under  "Gopher Bridge" at the point marked  "Present Channel" on the map. In  my former report, Juno 8th, 1905, "no  reference wns made to the "Present  Channel" because it was entirely  obscured from view by a very deep  snow-slide. The "Old Channel" however, was partly open to view, and, because of its logical position, was  mistaken, for tbe channel actually  conveying the water under the bridge.  The creek has a tortuous course under  the bridge as is shown on the map.  The first portion of it was inaccessible because of the low roof, the last  portion because of the deep water in  the creek.  Photographs Nos. 24 and 25 were  taken here by flash-light. They show  something of the fantastic carving of  the water channel in the marble  strata, but do not convey a true idea  of the real beauty of the thing itself.  The openings that were explored are  now easily accessible, and it appears  to be quite possible to form a continuous passage under the bridge by  bridging the deep and swift portion of  CougarCreek"thatis -now- impassible  and which is shown in photograph  No. 25. If this is done the visitor  would begin his tour of the caves by  entering first at the upper or west end  of "Gopher Bridge." Emerging at the  east end he would again enter by  "Entrance No. 1." At the south-east  corner of the "Auditorium" a passage  can be made into "The Canyon" by  removing the debris for about 20.feet.  Then the visitor can make a continuous trip from the west end of  "Gopher Bridge" to the large cave  without retracing any steps.  A correction in my former map is  made, on the accompanying map, as  to where the waters from "Whistler  Falls" join Gougar Creek. In June  last this junction was partly obscured  by a heavy snow slide, in fact the  waters from the falls were then running as shown on my former map.  After the snow disappeared it was discovered that they join Cougar Creek  under 'Gopher Bridge" and disappear  from the surface in a deep, nearly  vertical shaft, called "The Gopher  Hole."  The exploration of the main cave  through "Entrance No. _" was a most  laborious task. The descent into "The  Canyon" was by means of a rope down  an incline   that   was   nearly perpendicular, about 75 per cent,  and  over  suow ahd ice, for a distance  85  feet.  The cave was  then  entered  by "Entrance No. 2."  Cougar Creek at this time was very  ] much less in volume as compared with  its flush condition at the time of my  former report, June 8,1905,  and  fair  progress in the exploration  has been  made.     A  complete  survey of all its  accessible openings was made and tbo  accompanying map shows   them   in  their relative positions.     Nine photographs   were   taken    by    flash-light  illustrating some of the most attractive features.* j  THIS MAIN CAVE  ground openings thus far discovered.  It naturally should because of the  additional waters entering ��������� it. The  average height of the main channel-  way, measured on the dip of the strata,  is about 100 fest, while the width,  measured perpendicular to the bedding faces, rahges from 8 to 20 feet.  This channelway is not, as might be  supposed, of uniform width, but  varies with the conditions of flow of  the water at tho limo of its formation.  | With all the water flowing through it  on a steep grade it would bo narrow,  and with only a portion of it, the  other portion running around some  other way, it would also be narrow.  It would be widest where all the water  passed through it and on a modorate  grade.  During its earlier history it undoubtedly appeared mucli like the  pass&geway in "Entrance No. 1," described in niy report of June 8, 1905.  But as the chunnelway grew deeper  and wider, tlirough centuries of  erosion, many largo masses of rock  from the lianging-wnll were loosened  and fell into tho channel-way, .thus  causing an obstruction, around which  the water cut its way, and at tlie same  time cut away some or all of the obstruction itself. As a result many  enlarged places are to be seen here  and there. Still others arc to be seen  that have been formed as pot-holes,  like rounded shafts, down which the  water poured keeping the boulders at  their bottoms ceaselessly grinding  them deeper and deeper.  From these results it was only a  matter of time when, particularly at  the confluence of streams, great masses  of overhanging reck would be un-  footed and dropped into the great  channel and pot-holes. Thi3 is shown  to a marvelous degree where the  waters of "Bear Falls" formerly joined  Cougar Creek. Portions of the old  channel-way and of the very large potholes are here visible, the other portions being covered with fallen rocks  from the roof. One of these, an  enormous rock, rests in 'a nearly horizontal position and its upper surface  contains about 1200 square feet cf  fl oor space.   This we named  "THE BALL ROOM.'-'  About 150 feet south from "Tlie  Ball Room" is "The Pit." This is the  "Deep Cavern," at "Entrance No.-3,"  mentioned in my report of June 8,  1905, that was estimated to be 25G feet  deep. This estimate was made from  the number of seconds required for a  stone to reach the. bottom. It took  four seconds, but several deflections  were made by the stone in its descent.  The nearly vertical portion, "The Pit,"  measures 120 feet,. and the steep  channel-way leading from its bottom  and down which the stone undoubtedly went, measures 125 feet more, mak-  2_5 feet by actual measurement.. The  rocks in "The Pit" are of a very dark  blue-grey color and have bands of  white marble inserted in thcm* which  have been crumpled by pressure, giving the bands a zig-zag appearance.  The fallen masses of rock wherever  found throughout thc cave, particularly tbose about'"The Ball Room" and  "The Pit," were carefully examined to  determine their present stability. The  roof was also examined carefully to  the same end,' The singular firmness  of every fallen piece, even the very  small ones, led the writer to the discovery that the water had undoubtedly  shifted all tbe fallen pieces, great or  small, into positions that are firm and  reliable. No evidence whatever was  discovered of any present movement  in the roof, neither were any points  discovered where the present water  erosion has made a fall of rock imminent.  To make travel easy in the cave  plank walls should be built across  these rough places. '' No blasting of  any kind whatever should be allowed  in any part of the cave in forming  passage-ways or in making improvements. The present quiet condition  of the rocks is thereby insured, and  the breaking of tbe fragile carbonate  of lime coating, which forms the  decoration of the cave, by the concussion .of-bl������sting,_is_algo_pr_eyented._  A blast might work ruin to this  attractive feature.  At a point on the main passageway  nearly opposite "The Pit," and marked  A on the map. an opening was found  through which we descended to the  present bed of Cougar Creek at the  bottom of the cave. Thia passage led  us north directly under "The Ball  Room," where an examination wag  made of the bottoms of the gigantic  pot-holes, now in ruin, and of the old  water grooves. We naturally named  this spot  "THE OLD MILL."  It   certainly   did   grind   for many  centuries before  it  fell  into ruin and  disuse.     Passing   still   further along  this passage in   a  northerly direction  we came   down   upon   Cougar  Creek.  Following up the creek  to the point  marked B we discovered  that it  here  makes a   sudden   turn   to the northwest.     Photograph No 26 shows this  turn to the left with Mr. Deutschman  standing on the edge of Cougar Creek.  Continuing up the creek we came  to  a   place   where   the   low   roof    and  accumulated gravel prevented further  progress.     This   point  is only about  200 feet from where Cougar Creek disappears near "Entrance No. 2."     Returning to the point B  we continued  on in a northerly direction and found  a different kind of gravel and boulders  in the bed of the channel.   In Cougar  Creek above the point B it consists  of  marble and. schist   with   very   little  quartzite; which   is   chiefly  white or  the inlet from "Upper Goat Falls."  Continuing to tho northward we came  to a sudden turn to the right, beyond  which the most ragged walls are to be  seen that have been ' found anywhere  in the cave. The jagged points ami  grotesque shapes nt once inspire  caution.   It was named  "the tekijou."  Its peculiar roughness is duo to the  partial, metamorphosis of the rock  and is similar to the condition of  change found in thc rocks under  "Gopher Bridgo." In this case the  condition is accentuated by the existence of thin knife-like blades of thc  unchanged limestone instead of  nodules, all of which extond from one  half inch to two inches beyond the  general surface'of the marble holding  them. The extiemo south ond of this  inner passage risos suddenly for aliout  15 feet and a ladder is needed to explore it beyond this point. This is  the present water com so. The extreme north ei:d opens out into u  large chamber that is practically 1111. cl  with sand and gravel. Scleral bianch  passages are to'. be been extending  north and south from this chamber  but they:are nearly lillid with giavel.  They all enter it near the roof,  From this chamber to the point A  this entire passago has been funned  along a fault, which inclines upward  at an angle of about 65������ to the west.  Along its line on the surface the  ravine of  "beak falls"  has been formed, also the depression  through which its waters now flow to  "Entrance No. 3." From this entrance down into the cave these  waters have cut their way along this  same fault, joining Cougar Cieek below, and in their passage have formed  "The Pit."  This portion of the cave just described from A northward and downward along Cougar Creek to the limits  mentioned, and the passage from li to  "The Terror," hart never before been  explored until Mr. Deutfchinan and |  the writer entered it on Oct. 27, 19u5.  It is one of the most interesting and  instructive portions ot the entiic cave.  It tells a long story in history from  the first grinding of "The Old Mill" to  the present day erosion, probably  MOKE THAN -10,000 YEARS.  * Returning again to the point A and  continuing along the pissagewny,  which from here runs in a soutl.-  easterly direction along the strike of  the strata, many interesting features  are met with! -   ,  * From the map it will bo observed  that those sections of the highest* old  waterways' thus far thoroughly explored and surveyed, from "Kntianco  No. 2" to the-*present southeasterly  limit of the cave, are all on a line and  that this'line is''coincidcnt with,the  strike of the strata". The omitted,  sections of it that,lie on either side of  "The Pit" have- been explored sufficiently tp determine that.they are-on  the same linear -Obey., are so nearly  tilled witb debris as "to be unattractive. ��������� Tbe^factthat-this old watei way  was originally straight and continuous  along the strike of the strata, and  passed close to "The Pit," forms a base  from which to study the subsequent  changes. ',  At a point about -190 feet forwaid  from A a passage to the left exists  th'at leads to the brink of  A PRECIPITOUS ROCK  at the foot of which Cougar Creek can  be seen dimly. Photograph No. 27  was taken there. The dark spaces ai c  abandoned channels cut by the water.  Cougar Creek shows faintly at the  bottom of the picture���������a littlo to the  left of the middle. This pluce had  already been named  "the turbine"  by a previous visitor. . There is a roar  and swish of falling water to be beard  here. Undoubtedly .he roar mentioned in my former report as heard in  "The Deep Cavern" came from this  falls, whose roar, when Cougar Creek  is highest, is thrilling beyond description.  A search was here.made for a way  to"ger~down"uporrthe~bed~ of- Cougar  Creek both above and below the falls.  Above thn falls the-passageways shown  on the map were found and the creek  explored and surveyed for the distance  shown. Below the falls a crevice in  the rock was found through which we  descended to the present creek bed.  The.course of Cougar Creek here is  diagonally to the : right across the  strata, and its level is about 00 feet  below the passageway by which we  advanced.

Ono of them, with an niched roof  about 40 feet from the bottom, is*  decorated iu a most beautiful manner  with cru bun ate of lime accumulations.  Standiug at the bottom, and looking  up, a most beautiful bight greets the  eyes. It was at once named  "thi: home."  All progress in a southeasterly  direction nlong Cougar Creek beyond  the point rcpiesented oh tho map i\a_  barred by a very low roof at one place  and at another by tho sleep descent  and the swift current of the cieek  itself. '  This portion of the cave aboie and  below tho falls, or "The Turbine," is  also a section thit hnd never been  entered before Mr. Deutschman and  the writer entered it on October 28,  1005. In fact thc first e_plorntion of  the bottom of this cave at any point,  and the locution of Cougur Cieek  running through it, is here recorded.  Passing on in u southeasterly ilu-  ection fiom tho point A for a distance  of 250 feet an old water course is  entered that we named  "THE Alt- GALLER."  because of thc beautiful deposits of  carbonate of lime. This lime accumulation is white or creamy white with  an occasional tint of pink. It resembles heads of cauliflowers set closo  together without intervening space,  and in mass is \ery beautiful.  " From "The Art Gallery" forward for  200 feet several more spots with lime  accumulations arc to be seen.  Immediately   after     p&ssiug     the  >' southeast end of "The Ait Gul Tory" a  waterway on the right was observed,  but it was inaccessible except for a  short distanco owing to its almoSt  vcitical ascent and to its narrowness.  " This may bc the inlet from "Entrance  No. ���������_" which is "Loner Goat Falls."  This is not positive, however, as a  passage vvas observed branching off  from the loop of Cougar Criek*at~"The  Turbine." The wiiter thinks the  latter the most probable iulet from'  "Lower Goat Falls." This inlet at  "The^ Tut bine" was hot explored as a  ladder was needed." - .,_- '    /  ,,.  .   From  the waterway on lho light,  -   Just 'beyond  "The  Art  Gallery,"���������our  . course was down over  lar^o masses of  * fallen rock for^ a "distance of 300 feet,  tlien turning "to   the"- right and still"  "*' continuing down -through..a" nariow  ..passageway for a distance of'-JLOO  feet'  v-. morer we entered a" beautiful:"opening  ". br rooni which we called ,"~ " 2  JTHE BRIDAL CHAMBEK.  The decorations of "carbonate  are creamy  white   uud   very  of lime  ihiiiity.  This^roo_a-i-.fccmcd againbtja/lfault,''  ^''showing tbat Cougar.

The roar of  water  plunging down  a  steep .incline could  b. , clem ly heard,  and-it ie assumed-that the creek continues along this fault for some dis-*  tancc.  ' We were greatiy.di������appointed  in iiot being able to descend to its b'^d'  as this set-ms to be'the only avenue 6f  entrance to  the   openings  that   unquestionably    exist    between - ."The  _j Bridal 'Chamber"- and where Cougar  ;" Creek emerges to the surface.   * Just  where the last point is we have been  unable to determine as  no sufficient  outflow  of "water  has "thus  far been  found .onj the "surface   to   positively  locate it.1} -' ** '  Immediately over "The Bridal  Chamber," about 125 feet above it,  exists the extreme southeasterly end of  THE OLDEST WATERWAY  in the cave, and which has already  been ^described ns partly in ruins.  Owing to its original continuity in a  straight line  for 1000  feet, nnd   iis  _spresent_-broken__condition, we have.  named it "The Buined Aqueduct."  Photograph 32 is of a beautiful brown  accumulation of lime surrounded by a  drapery of puro white. No. 33 shows  Borne fantastic formations of pure  white with ii few small stalactites.  No. 3d is a chamber at tho sido of the  old waterway which we have named  "The White Grotto." -   -  After ' ladders have been prepared  and put in p!a--e, st the points mentioned as necee-nry, the exploration  can bo continued. No faither attempts were made at this time to  effect an en tiy.  -j,      .    ,A SHALL CHAMBER  exists directly over the north end of  "The Canyon" which was explored in  September by Mr. Deutschman and  named by him "Tho Ice Cave" because  the ice remained in it during the entire summer. This opening is mentioned in my foimer report as blocked  with ice, and was then designated as  "Entrance No. 2" believing that it  , connected with thc cave below. In  this report "Entrance No. 2" means  the,entrance on the bed of Cougar  Creek, at the bottom of "The Canjon"  100 feet porpendicul.nly lelow this  opening. This "Ire Cave" consists of  a nairow passage about 80 feet long,  then a chnmbpi 20\4() feet with two  branch pn.sagca lending fiom it, each  about 100 feet long.  An opening in tho ravine 1700 foot  in a southeasterly (liie. lion from tho  most southerly poii t of (he Mul. wn.  recently discoveied by .'Mr. Deutschman and wc npxt proceeded to it. We  were able to enter it for about 75 feot  only when the passage branched and  became so small that wo could go no  farther. This opening, whilo it may  prove to be local and in no way connected with the main cave, causes the  writer to believe that there are [  GREAT POSSIBILITIES  etill existing as to the extent of the  main cave. -  A few stalactites wero found here  and thore in tho old parts o. the main  cave, puro white iu color, the largest  boing 18 inches long.  J-XTENT OF CAVE.  Tho prediction made in my -former  report that "The area between Entrances Nos. 2, 3, and 4 aud "Upper  Goat" and'"Douglas Falls" is most  probably a labyrinth of underground  waterways," has been almost fully  veiilied, the only portion not yet  enteied being the triangular space between "Upper Gout Falls," "Douglas  Falls" and "Entrance No. 4." From  the conditions now known it is only  logical to beliovo that extensivo openings exist in this area. The picdic-  tion also that "The ono half milo between "Lower Goat Falls' and the  supposed outlet should bo tho largest  pait of the cuvo by reason of accumulated waters," has beeu veiified iu  greater part.   That  A VERY EXTENSIVE CAVERN EXISTS  in this aiea, beyond that already explored and bhown on the map, is a  foregone conclusion.  The total length of the passageways  surveyed and measured by tho writer  thus lar amounted to about 4000 feet,  or four fifths of a mile. To see the  caves at this timo, before any improvements are made, tho visitor must roti ace his steps in every passageway,  thus doubling the distance named. He  muBt travel 8000 feet or one and three  fifths miles on the main passageways,  This does not include the distance between the entrance nor the little side  trips that will be made here and theie  in the cave to get closer to the various  points of interest: The distance into  the cave is now so great that it will  reqniio the visitor to be a person well  used to climbing in order to view the  entire cave in one day.  PROBABLE AGE OF CAVE.  The mnible rocks in which the cave  is formed belong moat probably to the  Devonian'ugo. No fossils were found  however to positively verify ������his conclusion. The limestone rocks have  uot been completely changed into  marble at all points as was observed  under "Gopher Bridge",and in "The  Terror." Notw ithstanding the fact that  the rocks belong to a comparatively  old seiics,yet tho beginning of the cave  undoubtedly dates from a very recent  geological time.  'Assuming the rate of erosion to be  one thirty-second of an inch in a year,  then to eut down one .hundred-feet of  rock, which is nbout fthe average  amount eroded iu the main cave, . .  - _      WOULD REQUIRE 38,400 YEARS. .  "Any actual rate greater or less than  .lliis-. assumption ..would increase., oi  "arminisli-the .rige "''of - thevcave.- . -In  several "places along Cougar, Creek in  the*bottom.'-of -���������"tlie cave,an excellent  opportunity" is aflorded"to ^determine  actually .the. "piesent "annual raie'cf.  erosion." A','micrometer measuring  apparntus%8hould be used and the area  orcross-sectioi-of the'rock eroded per  yard.thusjaccuratly,computed." ^Also  the'ratio between the area of tfiecross-  section of theaveiuge stream and "the  aieii of the rock eroded should be determined. And finally the quantity  of water passing the given* section in  one-year, and its .velocity, should 'bp  accurately measured.  Iif _ contemplating the foregoing  suggestion as to the .probable -age of  I the cave it should-be' borne in mind  that wliere"gravel iind~_and lodge, in  the bed of the stream the rate "of  erosion is many times less than where  the bed in continually swept clean *by  a more rapid current. - r*  The above report is respectfully sub  mitted ���������*-      -,   , **    - '*- -J  .**    V ;    '- (Sgd.)

"I waa with Captain Hoskins."  said lho third mate, "in Nagasaki  Harbor, getting a cargo of coal on  board for Saigon, whon Peter Min-  chin camo on board. He was onu of  the pilot- who take peoplo up nntl  down tho inland sea. Ho'd lived  most of his life in Japan, and had  known old Hoskins for some fifteen  years.  "lie found tho old mnn on tho  bridgo watching the boat awnings  being fixed.  " "Mornin', Cap'n Hoskins,' ho  eaid.  "The skipper roturned his salute.  'Morning,  Minchin,'  ho  replied.  " 'It's a fino morning," said tho  pilot.  " 'Vou didn't como on board to  tell mc that?' says the old man.  " T did not,' said the pilot. 'I  came on a little matter of business.'  "Old Hoskins motioned him to- a  deck-chair wliich stood bosido tho  chart-house, and took another him-  nc!f.  "'It's about n.y wife,' said tho  pilot.  " 'About  who?'  " 'My wife. You didn't know I  wns married,  then?'  " T never remember you bragging  about it. When did the unfortunate  affair take place?'  " 'My wifo is a Japaneso,' says  Minchin. ignoring tho insinuation.  'She ain't been well latoly, and the  doctor advises sea air and a bit of  a chango. Sho's got an uncle, a  merchant in Saigon, and I thought  that, as you're going thoro, you  might givo her a lift. I'd tako it as  a favor."  " 'Hut    I've    no    accommodation,'  said tbe  old mnn.   ��������� 'Besides, I don't  care    about    having women  on  this  ship.    It's apt to unsettle my third  officer's mind a bit.'  " 'To  oblige me,' says Minchin.  " '.-'oil,  well,  Peter,' says the old  * man,   *if you put it that way; I suppose I can't;   refuse you.     You can  bring her aboard this evening.'  "Minchin brought his wife on  board in tlic evening. She was a  pretty, slight littlo thing, with dark  eyes, and dark hair coiled up wondrous on tho top of her head. She  was vcry quiet, and seemed very  fond of hcr husband. Ho introduced  her* to Hoskins, and she: went down  on lier hands and knees nnd tapped  her fort head on the deck as a mark  of respect. Hoskins was as pleased  as though he'd deserved it.  " '..ow. then, skipper,' says Minchin, 'I'm trusting to you, onc  that's dearer to mo than life. There  ain't another man as I'd allow her  to be in charge of. Here's a lettor  to her uncle. Ichida Nugoya, gener-  ~al merchant, in the Rue Lafitto.  When you get to Saigon, all you'vo  got tt- do is to take hor there, and  I'll lie eternally grateful to you.  " 'That's all right, Peter,' said the  old man.  "W'e got up anchor an hour later,  and Peter gave his wife a farewell  'kiss.'and- went down the side. The  .': Japanese don't kiss, ns a rule, but  I expect she'd picked it up fromher  husband in live years of .married life  ���������-just about the time it takes a.  European to forgot.it.  "Slie stood Hooking after him as  we steamed down the harbor, and  then turned. to Hoskins, with a  pitiful  little smile.  " Tt is sad,' she said, 'to leave  en; whom one loves vory dearly, is  it hot?"  " Tt      is,!     says      old    Hoskins.  'Many's  the  time, I've  had  to   do  it  "myself.'  "There isn't a prettier place in the  world than Nagasaki .Harbor..'. Wc  steamed down the long channel between winding hills, with the water  stretched out between them as  smooth as glass. Tho girl kept  looking back, standing as motionless as a block of carved wood. At  last a whiff from the open sea took  us. The steamer pitched up her  bows a little to it, and .took a slight  "1 ran up to thc bridgo. Hoskins  met mo, his faco the color of chalk.  " 'Whore's that girl?' ho yelled.  'George  Where's that girl?"  " Tn hor cabin, I suppose, sir,' I  said.  " 'Sho's^ not!" ho roared. 'Sho  camo on "clock. I saw her standing  for'nrd of tho bridgo on the starboard sido. Thoy tiling a lino, and  I lost sight of hor. Goorgc, if sho's  gone overboard, I'll nover forgivo  myself!'  " 'I'll go and look for her, sir,' I  replied. And I turned nnd loft tho  bridgo  "1 searched high and low. Sho  wasn't in her cabin, and sho wasn't,  anywhere elso that I could seo. I  went np to report.  " 'Wo'll talk of it. in the morning.'  said tho old man, puzzled. T guess  wo'll have to stand by tho other  ship. It's a chanco wo'vo damaged  her.    Go aft and lire a rockot.'  II.  - plunge:���������It- seemed_to���������wake-Her-lip"."  and she turned to Hoskins, with  tears in  hor eyes.  ���������'Twill go my cabin,' she said.  'I have seen enough.'  "She took one more look at the  shore, repeated her bow to tho old  man and me. and turned in.  ���������lilVc had a lovely voyage nlmost as  far as Hong Kong. Every niorning  as tlio little woman came up on the  bridge she would give tho old mnn  one of her low bows, and then he  would put creases into his waistcoat  trying to imitate hcr. He used to  fix her up in hi.s deck-chair and wrap  rugs around her and sit and talk to  her by the hour.  "Tlie night before we mado Hong  Kong was pitch dark., There was a  bit of a fog on the water, and not  a star showing. It was the middle  watch, and I was in my bunk taking  forty  winks.  ������������������Suddenly I hoard a crash and a  succession of grinding bumps, as if  wc were knocking up against something solid. Then the telephonc-bclf  rang wildly in the cabin, and there  was a rush , of feet overhead. I  jumped up and ran on deck. The  ship had a heavy list to starboard,  aud as I looked up at tho masts tho  first tiling- that caught my'eyes was  the tops'l of a big sailing-ship  jammed up against thc foremnst-  * light.  "Her yards swuii������' round slowly,  and she drifted past us. Our anchor  had caught in her fore shrouds. As  she '.vent astern it ripped them  through, dragged aft ivV.ng hcr bulwarks, tearing tho -,.ain ������_rouds,  a:*,fl finally catching in th'.' break of  th;- pfMip.

"He pulled tho check-string of our  whistle. Tho roar of tho syren rang  hoarsely through tho night. I wont  aft and fired a rocket. Thoro was  no answer.  "When I went on the bridgo again  Hoskins was very palo.  " Tt looks . bad,' he said. 'I'm  afraid we've sunk her. But I'll  stnnd by until morning.'  "Wo hunted up, and down in tha  fog. Now a__d again wo thought  we'd got a glimpse of her, and now  and again wo lost hor.  "At last we gavo up searching,  and slowed down, waiting for morning. When it broke, tho sea was  quito clear. Hoskins put tho ship  into Hong Kong to report, and  then we* continued our voyage to  Saigon.  "Tho old man was more cut up  than I thought it possible for him  to bc.  'I'd give a year's pay, George,'  ho .said,* 'if this hadn't happened!  There's that girl's uncle to faco  whori wo get to Saigon. How I'm  to look poor old Peter in tho faco  after this, I don't know.'  "When wo arrived ho wrote off a  letter to tho pilot, explaining how  tho sad occurrence had' happened. It  was a beautiful letter, too, -all  about the chances of. a sailor's life,  and being in tho midst of death, and  all that sort of thing. Tho old man  was so pleased with it that ho read  it over to mc before ho. closed tho  envelope.  ".'I'll go ashoro and post it,  George,' he said; 'then I'll go up  and see tho poor girl's uncle. It's  a sad business!'  "He wont nslioro, and camo back  in about two hours, looking rathor  .queer.  " 'See her uncle,  sir?' I says.  "'No,'  ho bursts  out;   'thero, ain't  no   uncle!     There, ain't  anyone     of  that  name  in  tho  town;   there  ain't  any address like  this one, cither.'  "I whistled.  " T enn't make it out!' he said.  " T. guess I. can/sir,': I answered.  ���������It's plain enough to me. Mr. Minchin was- getting a bit tired of his  wife; I������������������ fancy", and this is his little  way of losing her.'  '"'Jhe oh! man rubbed his chin reflectively, but snid  nothing.  "On the return voyago: we put into Hong Kong, and Providence put  a finer piece of luck into our hands  than we could have hoped for. We  found the ship We'd been in collision with refitting her rigging, and  we found Peter Minohin's wife on  board of her.  "The ropo which they'd thrown had  knocked her overboard. She had  clung to it, and they'd pulled hcr up.  When the old man saw her he was as  pleased as though he'd hatl a fortune loft him. She was pleased to  see him. too.  " 'George,' he said to me. 'we'll  take that girl home as a surprise-  packet for Peter. If he says a word  to .inn about her, I'll put such a  head on "him that he won't be ablo  to speak for a fortnight."  "When we got to Nagasaki we had  another bit of luck. Peter came on  board, with a handkerchief up to  his eyes, and with thc letter the old  man had .written him .'in his hand.  Tho old man kept tho girl close in  hcr cabin.    "TC's very sad, "captain," says  Peter���������'very sad.'  " 'There's no one moro sorry  about it than T am,: said the old  man,   looking him  over.  " 'Poor thing!' said Peter. 'But  her end was peace.'  " 'I hope yours'Il be as peaceful!'  says the old man, clenching his  fists.  " T hope so. Hut. what's dono  can't be helped. Come oh shore and  dine with mo. cnptnin. The  missiis'll   be glad   to see you.'  '   "The missus"?' echoed  Hoskins.  "'Yes. I felt lonely. I'm married again. This one's an English-  woman.'  "'She didn't .know you were a  widower, I suppose'.'" nsked Hoskins.  '' 'No;  I didn't think  l.o  tell  hcr.'  "The  old  man  began   to  grin.  " 'Stop a moment,' he Kaid. 'Wilh  regard to this first mnrritige of  yours���������was it just by .Japanese law,  or was it nn  Knglish man-Litre'.'  " 'I'm surprised at you, cap'n!'  said Peter, trying to look hurt. Tt  was n. regtilar--marriagc before tho  English  Consul.'  " 'That's all I wanted to know,'  said tho old man. 'Peter Minchin, I  camo back to this port to lircal; a  marlinspiko over your head, but, on  second thoughts, Tm not going to  do it. Your {..first wifo was saved,  and   is   in   the   caWn   there. Your  second's at homo.

"Mother," said Bobby Boy, when  she kissed him good-night, "I wish  1 was a littlo bird and lived in a  littlo nest."  "isn't this bed a nico littlo.nost?"  nsked Bobby Boy's mother. She  knelt on the floor bosido him, and  put hcr head on his whito pillow.  "Isn't 'this nice soft littlo bod, and  pretty nine comfort, and plump  whito pillows nicer than sticks and  straws and leaves and paper, woven  logethor as tho robin in tho lilac  bush  mnkes  its  littlo houso?"  "Not quite, mothur," said Bobby  Boy. "I want to sleep just ono  night in a nost."  Bobby Boy's mother laughed and  kissed him good-night again and  cuddled tho bluo comfort about him  and smoothed tho white pillows and  patted tho yellow curls and. told him  to (jo to sleep. He lay thinking  nbout how nico it was for littloIbirds  who didn't go to kindergarten, and  had nothing lo do but build nests  in lilac bushes. When ho did go to  sleep at last, ho drcamod nbout  nests with littlo blue comforts in  them, and littlo brass knobs all  round the edgo of thom and funny  pillows mado of moss.  Noxt day Bobby Boy was very  busy. His mothor found him building a bird's nest in tho closet. It  was bigger than tho nost in tho lilac  bush, for Bobby Boy was fivo years  old. It was mado of pine branches  he had brought in from tho woods,  and tho feathers he had picked from  an old duster, and bits of moss and  paper and string.  Night came again, and Bobby  Boy's mother tucked in tho bluo  comfort and patted the whito pillow  and smoothed Uio yellow hair and  kissed Bobby Boy good-night after  she had sung a iittlo !go-to-sleep'  song to him.  Bobby Boy ditl not go to 'sloop.  Ho lay very wide awako, watching: a  big whito moon shining through tho  applo tree. Bobby Boy was waiting  till the houso grew still, thon ho  meant to go out and build a'nest iu  t.he applo treo. When the house grow  still, Bobby Boy crawled out of bod.  Ho put on his littlo trousers and  stockings, then ho pulled thc bluo  comfort off tlio little*? bed and tied  it into a bundle. There were sticks  in the bundle, and moss and paper  aiid the feathers from the. 'feather  duster. Bobby Hoy opened tho .window and crept out on a little piazza.  "Cheep, weep, cheop weep,' went a  frightened littlo bird - in the tree;  then it flew away nnd screamed, for  11 had nover beforo seen a little  boy looking down into its tree whon  tho moon was shining. The apple  tree threw ono big branch up on the  piazza.   ,  There was tho nicest place where  fivo big limbs branched out. It was  just big enough to hold a little  boy's nest, and Bobby Boy had beon  thinking about tit for a long, long  time. He climbed up on the branch  and put hi.s legs around it. exactly  as he did when he'���������%lid; down on tho  banisters. Ho held the ropo that  was tied to his bundle, then he slid  down the big branch into thc heart  of the apple tree: Once or twice the  little twigs whipped him in the faco,  thc tree creaked and groaned. and  the blue ''bundle stuck among the  branches. At last he was down in  the little nest, and he stood there  for a minute, breathing very hard.  He pulled the bundle after, him, and  it came*, with a whack that almost  knocked ;him down. It was a good  thing there were nice. Arm branches  like a wall all around him, or  Bobby Boy would have tumbled to  the ground. He waited for a minute  to get his; breath back, then he began to build his nest. It was hot  as easy to build a nest as in tho  closet.because thing., tumbled to tho  ground. All the .licks fell, and a  puff of wind carried the paper and  feathers away. The moss wouldn't  stay put. and nothing seemed to  want to bo made into a nest but the  blue-comfort-���������Bobby-Bwy-_>fain-bir--  gan to feel cold, so ho spread it  round him and crouched down in his  nest. It was very Ifrnely and quiet.  The little bird came back und flow  into the top of the tree and snid,  "Cheep weep, cheep weep," as if it  wore sleepy and   llreii  The moon grew bigger nnd whiter  and brighter, and Blared boldly at  Bobby Hoy through the branches.  Bobby Hoy didn't feel comfortable  in  his    nost;     a.  scraggy old  branch  "Bobby Boy!" cried his father.  "Bobby Boy, where aro vou?"  "Here, in my nest," callod Bobby  Boy. Then father and mother climbed out on tho uiiizza. - His mother  was crying, antr_iis father wns bending down into tho npplo tree, but ho  could not reach Bobby Boy. Then  everybody in tho houso waked up,  and n long ladder went up to tho  very hoart of tho oltl applo treo, and  Bobby Boy crept into his father's  arms. Ho wont to sleep in his own  littlo bed, with a hot water bottlo  at his foot and a hot, woolly blanket wrapped about him and soft whilo  pillows under his head; and the lust  thing ho remembered was tho big  moon looking nt him through tho  applo trco and saying: "Bobby Boy,  you'ro a goose. isn't that' lovely  bod bettor than n nest in the npplo  tree?"  "I boliovo it is, sir," said Bobby  Boy sleepily.  DRESS   CUTTING   HINTS  HOME      DRESSMAKING       TOR.  THRIFTY WOMEWT.  Some   Valuable    Pointers for   the  Ambitious Amateur  Dressmakers.

But tho ambitious  amateur dressmaker nover rests un-  tilTier efforts display nothing of the  home-made look that labels thom  her own productions, but strives to  accomplish work that bears the air  of a skilled  modiste's  aptitude.  To this end a good paper pattern  is the-first essential, or the old lining of another..'bodice that is a por-  fect iit. But a pattern is not everything. What is wanted next is skill  in cutting tho material which i.s to  bo usod, then'the tacking and fitting  process must ba intelligently followed, and, next, the stitching and  finishing of the garment, whatever it  may be.  IIOW TO  USE YOUU PATTERN.  No amateur who wants to mako  a great success of her gown should  choose a plaided or striped material for hoi' initial venture in  dressmaking. A self-colored, 'plojn-  siirfnced material is hci*_ wisest  choice. Plnids, stripes and even  spots, baffle, the most accomplished  dressmaker, and often result in failure, though when they are" skilfully  managed they are decidedly beautifying to tho figure.  -Choose a plain' ileal tabic ' that  you may scratch as much as you  liko for the cutting-out process; it  must have no cloth on'it, and you  must not be obliged to pack your  work away when tho tea-tray comes.  No good workwoman ever hns had  what is called a tidy tablo, for she  understands tho importance of not  fingering her work or folding it and  putting it away more than is absolutely necessary.   ���������'       '  The pattern you will have bought  ���������and do get u good one���������of courso,  represents one-half of tho bodice, and  a.s both sides of the average person  are alike���������though somo dilTer slightly and must be allowed for in tho  fitting���������so the pattern must be exactly repeated on two separate  pieces- of lining and material. Take  the lining, double it carefully, and  stretch it on the table, and as the  selvedges of many * materials and  linings are slightly puckered, it will  be well to snip thom all the wray  down at intervals of about two  inches. This will:; stretch out the  drawn part, and will: prevent tho  dressmaking process starting with a  slight pucker in the' pieco of work.  STEPS  IN  BODICE MAKING.  Now take the pattern and pin it  carefully on the doublo lining, and  do not he sparing of the pins. If  the straight of the; material is  marked' on the pattern,- arrange for  it     accordingly,     otherwise  lay     the  through tho tracing marks any  placo which will bo usoful to soo  afterwards, on tho right sido of tho  bodice, a groat deal of troublo will  bo saved, The principal places to  bo marked thus aro tho waist-lino,  as this will help you whon tho fixing  process begins; tho contro-tront, so  that you may tell whoro tho fastenings havo to bo arranged for; tho  collar-lino,  nnd  the armhole.  Tack on tho tablo���������that is to shy,  lot tljo bodico itsolf rest upon tho  tablo in front of you, with tho lining underneath and material on  top, nnd tako particular pains to  tacit tho back pieces togother vory  carefully, ao thnt no puckering may  ensue.  When tho moment comes for fitting, brnco yourself up to accomplish this Important part of your  task bravely and.with decision, bolter still, got someone who understands the matter to do it for you.  Almost tho most important port  in the fitting of a drcss-hodlco appertains '' to the chost.lne.c which  must not bo in nny way contracted,  or the wholo set of tho corsago; is  interfered with and spoilt; and horo  it mny bo added that anyone who  is being fitted should not only stand  upright,, but with hor head woll hold  up. Tt is, porhaps, natural to look  downwards to sco how the fitter is  proceeding; but .this must not ho  done, or tho bodico will certainly  run the risk of being finished with a  contracted front.

Alc_._  BATTLES  COMPARED.  The Huge Masses Employed in the  Late War.  Tho great feature of tlio war ,has  been tho hugei masses engaged, says  the Saturday Koviow. Leipzig itself  in this respect compares poorly with  Mukden. The hosts of 3 812 wero  not so numerous as those, that invaded Manchuria, and Borodino _nay  outrival .Liaoyang" in horrors, but  not in numbers" of. guns" or men'that  fought. .Yot it is surely remarkable  that after an unbroken record of defeat on such a huge scale the ���������l*-us-  sinns still can show an army fully  equipped and organized in position.  Liaoyang and Mukden were truly  enough to break the spirit and dis-**,  solve . tho ranks of - the stoutest '  troops in tho world.  Tn spite of the list of killed and  wounded, of the. prisoners, of the  guns and trophies the war could still  have been carried .on. Yet Marengo,  a more skirmish in comparison to  these battles of giants, decided tho  fate of a nation. .Jena laid a kingdom in tho dust. Even. Friedland  compelled n  Cznr to  come to terms.  What is it that mado Mukden indecisive and could allow tho Czar  to dream of victory when for a year  and a half not a gleam of success  had shono for a momont on his bayonets? The terr_.no in which the  battles were fought had, of course,  iniirli to tlo with it, but tho very  vns.noss of the armies had 'moro.  An army of several hpndrcds of  thousands cannot be.''moved .iko oho  of a third the size.

On tho transference of his native regiment to Knst Africa ho decided to  essuy his skill at Simba, a loiioly  station on tho Uganda Hailway, and  long famous for the vicinity .pf lions.  j Some two hundred yards from tho  station a water tank marks tho spot  whero tho lions drink very, frequently,  by night, nntl on this tank Captain  Stigand took up his post a few minutes after dusk, in thn brilliant light  of an African moon.  SHOT THHOUCH THE HEART.  A long wait ensued, and it was not  till many hours had elapsed that a  lioness made her appearance.' Creeping stealthily in roar, of tho tank,  tho bruto mado its way to a pool  closo by, and at this moment Captain Stigand ilred his .'lirst*.shot. The  effort proved a successful one, for  with a bound and a groan the boast  dashed forward ami fell shot through  lho heart, stretched at full length  across the railway line. A short  interval only had elapsed whon a  couplo.of lions emerged from tho  grass, evidently intent on their ovening drink; but their progress was  checked by. seeing tho lioness "a few*,  yards from them, and thoy at onco  proceeded to examine thVbody. One  of thcm, evidently tho niato, commenced scratching at tho carcase,  hoping thu lioness was only asleep,  and, meeting with no response, set  up a dismal howl, which was quickly  followed hy a roar from the othor.  For two hours Simba Station rang  with tho moaning and bellowing of  theso two fierce beasts, and during  that timo Cnptnin Stigand lay ready  at tho "present." At length thoy  quitted tho dead lioness and camo  slowly toward the tank. The leading  lion had approached within, fifteen  yards when a well-directed shot caused him to bound in the midnight nir.  This was at once followed by a second ball, and spinning round in his  agony ho reached the-long grass,  where he lay a huddled brown mass.  Tha" othor Tion'watched ^ thc scone  without movement. In a \trico tho  .25(5 -Mannlicher was" directed- against  him, and ho was sent moaning into  tho. cover, to, bo found lifeloss in the  early morning.    , '  ^ A DEATHLY STItUGGl-E.  - Seeing tho boasts apparently dead,  Captain Stigand descended from the'  tank and walked towards tho huddled  brown mass. Ho was only a fow feet  off when the worst happened. * Tho  beast roso'from tho grass and spuing.  With a mighty roar he leapt into tho  air and the whole surroundings seemed , hidden J>y his massivo frame.. The  sight was truly a terrific one. Every  hair in its body stood out, and every  vein swelled with fierco anger. A  shot was quickly (irod, but this only  increased tho ferocity of tho attack,  and then, camo a scene,- the* like - of  whicli has rarely been enacted. Tho  lion seized tho loft arm of tho hunter,  and man and beust rolled over together. With his right arm froo tho  gallant soldier caught his ussnilant  by tho throat and, fighting for' his  life, ho struck tho brute several  times. Once again they rolled ovor,  tho lion,- for the ' moment, on lop,  anil then tho man, and thc fierce  fight went on. At lti3t there was an  unexpected lull, for the lion. . sick  and wounded unto death, savagely  shook his victim, and then, to Captain Stigand's amazement, slunk  oil'.  This encounter was not the first of  Captain Stigand's with wild beasts.  Only "a foiv months previously,  while  stationed^ in I>rlU'sli_Contral__Afica,_  Ii'o was fiercely attacked by a rhinoceros, which tossed him several feet  into tbo air, having pierced-his chest  somo inches. Leaving him for dead  the "rhino" made oil, fully satisfied  with tho-domago he luid dono. This  attack, curiously enough, was mado  without provocation.  Captain Stigand lies in tho Nairobi  Hospital,  where he is receiving unround  where it  i orio Unit was showing in tho town,  antl driven Ihrough tho principal  sl roots, preceded by a band playing  wedding marches.  This pleasantry would seem to bo  a fnvorlto diversion of tho good folk  of Pittsburg, as tho son of a millionaire, who hntl himsolf a ponchant for  .practical joking, experienced on his  mnrringo threo years ago, when ho  and his brido woro suizotl on tho way  to the station, put into a largo*wire  cage, and drawn through the town  on. a waggon, to the''intense dolight  of several thousand': peoplo who had  been collected by tho aniiouncome.it  of a circus parado, whoroof tho principal attraction wos "a caged mad  btldnl couplo."  GYVES FOR NEW-WED JATI.ER.  Tho marriage at Paris a few years  ago of a man who held tho position  of Jailer at one of tho prisons was  mndo the occasion of a ludicrous db-  luoii.slration on tho ~ part of his  friends, who, on his leaving tho  church with his bride*; seized ; tho  couple handcuffed them, and escorted thom to their houso, followed-by  a'''douse.' crowd, .who woro doubtless  under the impression that tho pair  weroiiosporato  criminals.  Of an even moro unpleasant jest  was n veteran of over eighty, who  wus married at Birmingham in tho  early sixties to a girl of twenty, tho  victim. On leaving tho church thero  was found waiting not tho carriage  they expected, but a closed hoarse,  into which the old bridegroom was  bundled, whilo his wifo was hoisted  on to tho scat besido the driver.

HENS   ON  HIRE. .   -  A smart Californian farmer has  made a remarkable' success in a  branch of poultry-farming which is  not only novel," but which he claims  is doing a good deal to increase and  improvo thc poultry-keeping of the  country. As a branch of his poultry-  farming ho announced some time ago  thnt ho was willing to hire out good  ���������laying hens to any, would-be poultry-  keepers, and so great was the demand that very shortly ho decided to  dovoto himself entirely to this business, nobogan In earnest last year,  and this season ho had 10,000 young  hens for lennding, nnd he hopes next  year to have 50,000 lions. His method of business is to chnrgo throe  cents (ljd.) for each dozen eggs laid  by "the hens lent out. When a hen ia  non-productive. So far as the business has gone lt has been found that  each hen on tho average lajs 150  oggs a year, tho money return for  tho hire being just Is. 6-Jd. All the  hens are white Leghorns.  a   Battle     Royal at  King's Palaco.  Tho "man-eater," a name glvento  a dangerous horse in KutiyaiJ Kipling's tale of "Tho Walking Delegate," received salutary and deserved treatment at tho hands, or rather  tho hoofs, of his fellow beasts; but  tho horso of which Mr. Knighton  writes in "Private Lifo of an Eastern "King" had never experienced a  superior power, nnd therefore his  ferocity was untumperod by fear,  I was driving in u buggy*\vith a  friend through one of tho finest of  Lucknow'h streets, on tho way to tho  palace, when wo suddenly noticed thc  deserted condition of that part of  tho cily. No Inhabitant was to bo  seen in any direction. "Some execution." we whispered.  Just then we camo upon tho body  of a woman which looked ns if it  had heen trampled to tleatli on tho  pavement. On we went. No citizen  wa.s in sight, mid the houses everywhere wen: closed. Tho next thing  wo saw was lhc figure of a -youth,  lying dead upon the road. On tho I  top of a neighboring house I spied  ono of tho king's troopers,- intently  looking up  the  rond.  What is the matter?"  I called.  Tho  man-eater   is   loose.    Wallah!  ho  has  turned.     Look  out  for   your  safety, sahibs.    Ho is, wild  to-day."  I   had   heard   of   tho   fierce    animal  owned by tlic troopci-s.  "Ho is coming! Tako caro!" shouted   the man.  Far ahead wo could see tho brute,  a large bay horso, coming toward  us. Ho caught sight of tho vehicle,  and rushed forward to attack. Wo  turned rapidly round, and our horso,  almost unmanagablc from terror,  flew over the road.  Away wc went in a mad gallop toward an enclosure with iron gates.  As we sped wo could hoar tho furious clatter of hoofs growing nearer  and nearer. We gained tho gates;  my companion leaped from tho buggy ancl closed them. Tho monster  rushed up and stood looking savagely, his nostrils distended, his glaring eyeballs as ferocious as any  wild beast's.  Ho saw that he was foiled, turned,  kicked the iron bars, and mado for  an archway, where a party of troopers was awaiting him. They skilfully noosed tho brute, muzzled him,  and ied him away.  That evening I mentioned tho incident ,to the king. ,  "I  have  often   heard   of  the    man-  eater.    He must be a furious beast."  "Moro savage than  a tiger,     your  majesty."  "A tiger! Good! He shall fight  a tiger. Wc will see. 'what impression Burrhea will  make on him." -  Btiirhea was a favorite tiger, and  had nover been allowed tb enter a  contest in'which-he could not conquer The noxt, day iye,all assembled in a courtyard to see the fight.  The man-eater was standing in - a  groat enclosure made by bamboo  rails. Burrhea's cage was brought,  and tho beautiful creature was lot  looso. ' -       **  . The man-eater fixed his eyes on the  tiger, lowered his head, and waited.  The tiger bounded "with rapidity and  landed on the horse's haunches. Up  went the iron, heels, and Burrhea lay  sprawling. "  After this the tiger was'more cautious. Round and round the enclosure he went with catlike tread. For  fully ten minutes he. kept up tho  march, then, quick as lightning,  sprang��������� 'The man-eater was ready,  and ducked his head low. Burrhea  leaped to his back, and in an instant those terrible iron heels were  lashing up. and  down.  Tho tiger was thrown hofplessly to  tho ground, and lay with broken  Jaw, crying out with pain. The king  gave a signal,_ the door of the cage  was, opened, and the poor, defeated  Burrhea rushed in and buried himself in tho farthest corner. The man-  eater  stood  erect  and  triumphant.   *>_-   TO  TELL A HORSE'S  AGE.  SHE WAS IN BED  FOR THREE YEARS  PAIN-RACKED   WOMAN    CURED  BY DODD'S KIDNEY PIIXS.
