New and Important Discovery
���The Formation one of great
Beauty���A World Wonder
The more the Deutschman Oaves
are explored the more wonderful they
appear to be and every succeeding
report brought' down from there of
the discovery of new caverns seems to
bear out the opinion expressed by W ���
S. Ayres, M.E., during the visit of the
first exploration party to the caves,
that, the whole "mountain is honeycombed. _     *- '   . _  -  -
Two ' week's- ago'* the HeAaxd" an-*
nounced the discovery by Mr. DeuVscli-'
man of another 'series of "caverns at
the Big Caves, which 'he at that tiring
investigated for some little distance.
Last week Mr. Deutschman,'* accompanied by Messrs. Warren Andrews,
H. Riley and J. 0. McLeod, all of
Revelstoke, made a further investigation of the new discovery with startling success. Messrs. Andrews, Riley
and McLeod returned on Monday from
the caves and have given the Herald
.the following' particulars of* their Investigations into the newly discovered
passages: -  ~  '  . S
__ "Entering, the cavern, under the
guidance of Mr." Deutschman, at 8
o'clock one morning .we proceeded for
a distance of'fully two niiles with no
evidence of. the end in sight, and.as
bur lights', were giving, out-we_were
compelled to return,-reaching the open
again'at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. V
J-'The sight in this'new" cavern.is the
grandest _ we ..have- ever seen in'our
lives, and we never expect*to see anything.-equalling'it in*- magnificence
again.-.���The -walls' and ceiling;,are lit,

Revelstoke-Victorious at Golden
The Revelstoke football and baseball
teams went to Golden on the 18th and
10th inst^and had everything their
own way. "In\the football match the
home team*won, after a hard game,
the score being 1 to 0.   Golden had the
heavier teain^by far,   but  the good
combination 'play of tbe Revelstoke
boys brought** them out  victorious,
j    In the baseball gamealso.Revelstoke
demonstrated,-its,-superiority  by defeating thb^Goldenltes  by 12  to 7.
Revelstoke'toad things  pretty much
their own way. nnd between the two
teams the .boya came home with $200
of Golden'money/ .Both teams are to
be congratulated., on upholding the
reputation of the city so well.

irig from "that "to~'a**cream-and then,
again , to ''a- delicate '"shade o'f * pink;
glistening in the flare of the lights like
itoyriads of sparkling,diamonds. You
cannot imagine the grand effect until
you see" it for ��� yourself in the lamp
light'.; For over a quarter of a. mile we
'walked upon this! white crystallized
lime that sounded underfoot like flint,
**" "In exploring 'this* new cavern we
entered from the'bottom of thecan-
yon'*- where Cougar "creek- disappears
for the last time. For 'about 700 feet'
we followed the creek, at-which point
it branches oif to the northwest/while
3' continued--along the old cavern
channel-for a distance of about two
miles. - We .did not again encounter
Cougar creek -in all our journey.
Branching off from the main cavern
are numerous other caverns, some pf
Hfhich we explored for" a short distance. Our chief object��faoweyer was
to-_i8covei\_the extent-of. the :main
channel,~which we"~fdUowedrasaIready
stated, for fully two- miles without
reaching the end. ' At times the roof
was not more than 90 or 40 feet high,
while in other places it must have been
several hundred feet over bead. The
lights we carried would show the walls
ahead of us for a distance of 600 feet,
but in several places in the big cavern
our reflectors could not reach the roof
to give u*. any idea of its height. In
some of the side passages we explored
the air was cold, but in the main
channel it wa3 comfortable and pure.
'We. cannot give you any more
than a faint idea of the splendour and
magnificence, of' these recently discovered caverns, nor have we any
conception vof the length. .The proper
way ;tO'. investigate these passages
would be to take along blankets and
food "and prosecute the search until
the end is reached.; "' ,
"There is"1 not the least doubt that
these caves have no ,equal on this or
any other continent. , There may be
some greater in extent but there is
surely not one of grander formation.
Mr. Deutschman has done an immense
amount of work there, and in after
years the people of this district will
realize the benefit this great discovery
has lieen to them. The surroundings
are magnificent and it is an ideal spot
in which to spend a day, a week or
even a few months each year. The
altitude is something over 6000 feet,
the air of the purest, and the surroundings just as nature left them in
all their grandeur. Yes, the Caves
are a world wonder, and they will
prove so themselves."    ������
- Private.* Information received from

Additions Planned For Lumber
Mills  on   Main   Line���G. P.
Downey Describes Outlook for
Winter Operations.
The lumbermen along the main line
of the O. P .R. are evidently anticipating a protective duty. Many of them
are running at full capacity and increasing their plants. None are shipping at present.
G. P. Downey, formerly representing
the N. Thompson company of Vancouver, who will succeed W. A. Akhurst,
as head of the Nelson branch of the
Canadian Fairbanks company, arrived
in Nelson last night after a visit to the
mountain mills near Revelstoke. *' To a
reporter of The Dally News Mr.
Downey said:
"The mills are running night and
day, and several of them are planning
additions during the winter that will
greatly increase their capacity. None
of them, so far as I know, are shipping
at all at present, but they are all looking forward to a good "demand, at good
prices in the near future, and are
getting ready to supply it.   - , '"'
'���The Big Bend Lumber company at
Arrowhead will double the capacity of
its mills this winter. The Bowman
company at Comaplix,' intends to put
up an entirely new plant this winter.
The machinery for.it is nearly all on
the ground now. The mill uill have a
capacity,of 60,000 feet a^day. / _ .7

The Celestial Oath    .
For the flrst time in the history of
Kamloops, the full-fledged Chinese
oath, with all possible trimmings, was
administered during the sittings of the
county court last week. It was a
picturesque sight. Judge, counsel,
sheriff, accused, witnesses and police
all adjourned to the yard and there a
ceremonial altar, to wit, a block'.of
wood was erected. "Before r it was
placed candles and joss sticks, whose
dainty perfumes . soon pervaded the

Reduce Time to the Coast
It is understood that an important
change in the C.P.R. passenger route
between Nelson and the coast, which
has beon under consideration for some
time, is now practically decided upon
and will go into effect at an early date.
When the change is effected the
trains for the coast will leave Nelson
in the morning about 7o'clock. Passengers will reach the main line at Revelstoke by way of Slocan', Rosebery and
Nakusp,''making the trip from Nelson
to Vancouver in about 80 hours instead
of 42 as at present. *���
As far as can be learned it is not yet
decided what changes will be made to
enable passengers from .Rossland and
Boundary points to share the benefits
of the reduction in the time of the
journey. Tbe change will nullify any
advantage previously offered by the
Great Northern route between Kootenay and the coast cities.���Nelson

"Oh,..'.bother  the mirror!"  exclaimed. Vyiier;  as    he  sank  into  a chair  wearily.  Jermyn's answer was to ring the  bell. Alba, the valet, caino in. He  had served the two friends for six  years, and had received', many kindnesses from  them.  "A   short  cross-examination,   Alba,  if you plense,"< said''Jcrniyn shortly.  "Where did  you   soo Mr.   Vyncr     at  four  o'clock  this  morning?"  "On tho landing,  sir."  "How was he dressed?"  "In  his  night things,   sir."  "What  was  he  doing?"  "Looking   over   the   rails   of      the  landing, sir."  "Where have you seen him overy  morning about thc snmo timo for a  month past?"  "On  the landing,  sir."  "Samo attire?"  "Yos,  sir; always."  "Looking ovor tho rails?"  "Sometimes Mr.   Vyiier  looks 'ovei  the rails, sometimes ho tries to undo  tho catch of tho streot: window."  "Thnt will do, Alba." And tho  valet went out.  Vyncr had listened, grey-luiud. 'i'J-.o  grey had slowly crept over tho white  i.-f his face. Now ho sat -villi his  head bent down. His lint;-.-!*..

"Hc    has    had   a bad  t   night,  sir."  V As soon as Vyner's footsteps had  *? ceased to sound on the staircase,  > Alba unlocked tho door of Jermyn's  ,���������. bed-room and entered. Hc had been  t   in previously,     unknown  to .anyone.  Ho walked towards the bod.  . I Jermyn lay quiet, his face looking  up from the pillow. Tho oyes stared  from under his brows liko lixed glass.  A thin red stream liad trickled from  a wound in his forehead down thc  sido of his face, but had now almost censed lo do so. Under his  nock was a litllo pool of darken ing  rod. There wns a bullet hole in the  coiling, another in tho wall, another  in a picture, another in a chair-  back.  Jermyn lay quiet, because hc was  dead.  His features showed no trace of  pain. Ho had died without a  struggle.  Alba loft tho bedside and went to  tho dressing-table. From a small  drawer in it hc took a now revolver,  which his master had never touched  since ho bought it. It wns loaded  in six chambers. Carefully, ono by1  ouo. Alba withdrew tho bullets. Thon  he wont to the bed again, and placed  tho revolver in thS dead man's right  hand. Presently, having looked carefully round the room, ho locked the  door, and went into tho broakfast-  .room.  He started when he saw Emmeline  there. A scared look .was on her  face. Fpr a momont the two faced  each other without speaking. Emmeline was the lirst to break the silence.  ."Is. not Mr.���������Mr. Jermyn taking  ���������taking breakfast this morning?"  she questioned him nervously.  Alba stood deep in thought for a  while, with his eyes turned to tho  floor. When ho raised them, it was  to see tears streaming down the  girl's  cheeks.  "I went into his room a little after  five this morning," ho answered,  "and���������and I found Jlr. Jormyn dead.  Ho has killed himself with a revolver.     Como and look."  Shrinking from knowledge of the  worst, yot anxious to know it, the  girl followed Alba into thc room.  She glanced at the dead man's faco,  and a poignant cry camo to hcr lips  as she looked. She crushed a :, corner of hcr apron into hcr mouth. Tho  cry broke as a pitiful moan.  "I'vo no doubt ho killed himself,"  Alba repeated quietly. "Tt's vory  shocking." And he led tho weeping  girl, back into the breakfast-room.  "Wliat nre you going to do?" Emmeline was faltering presently. .Sho  was consumed by alarm and perplexity.  "Do, Em'line?" answered Alba. "I  shall fetch tho police, now thnt Mr.  Vyncr has gone. I'm all of a shako  and a shiver, hilt there's nothing else  for it. '   It's awful���������awful!"  Somo. confusion in tho answers Alba gave to tho oflicors when they  camo in, .turned thoir suspicion towards him. Besides, there were several spots of blood on his clothes.  Almost boforo he knew what whs  happening, a pair of handcufls snap-  pod   on  his wrists.  Ht.  Vynor.'' was... racked with grief.  Though Jio was all but convinced';'of  Alba's guilt, he sent a solicitor to  him to give him a' whilo man's  chance in a' white man's country.  On 111. day when Vyncr .'entered tho  coroner's court as an ordinary witness, ho was a mere wreck of his old  scif. .'ITe. rb.uled' into his seat like ti  man  drunken.  After one of the police had do-  scribed the condition of tho room,  the appearance of tho body when  found, ahd had exhibited .Vlbg's  jacket with thc bloodstains upon it,  Vyncr was cal led. He could only say  that ho had left Jermyn woll on  tho previous evening, and  that when  tho public,  Alba himsolf,   stared     in  astonishment.  Vynor gazed at the girl by his  side, ns amazed as the rest. Boing  nearest to her, her cry had struck  through liis nervous frame liko a  sudden stab.  "Ho isn't guilty! Ho isn't  guilt}*!" cried Emmeline wildly, hor  arms Hung out in distracted suppli- :  cation. "Ho didn't do it. I know '  ho didn't." Then sho fell back  against her seat,, and buried hor faco  against  Vyner's shoulder.  "So far as this co i>-,t is concerned." said tho coroner, "the verdict is  given."  "Oh. but ho didn't do it," wailod  tho distracted girl.  "Then who did?" askod Vyncr.  "Tell mo tho truth���������'or that man's  sake.    Tell me tho whole truth."  ������������������It was* you! It was you!" sho  cried,  sobbing against his shoulder.  Vyiier jumped to nis feet.- Her  words smoto him liko a paralysis.  His faco was liko whito marble, with  the Ycins in a quiver. Staring terror was in every line of it.  "1? 1?" ho gasped.  "Yes, yes," " sobbed Emmeline.  "You���������you did it in your sleep, with  ���������with this." And she thrust into  his,��������� bands the old revolver with  which ho had boon experimenting' at  Scotland Yard. "I saw you go into  his room. I saw you como*out. You  dropped:thc revolver on tho landing  as you. walked back to your room.  Alba saw you como out, too.; Ho  camio out on the corridor, though ho  did not seemc. I was too lato to  savo you���������oh, too late���������too late! But  they can't harm you. You didn't  know. T, wouldn't have spoken if  they hadn't said ho did it. Forgive  me,. master,. forgive, mc!"  Enimclino cowered against him,  rocked by her anguish.  Vyner stood rigid, like a pillar of  marble. .'. One question only came  from his palid lips. It was addressed  to  Alba.  "Did���������you���������seo���������mo. Alba?" hc  gasped.  "I can say nothing against Mr.  Vyncr," said Alba stolidly. /. "Mr.  Vyncr has always been, good to me.  He" and Mr. Jermyn. wore like.", .���������.brothers."  For a moment Vyncr remained motionless. Then a perceptible shivor  shook that human pillar, and it began to totter; toltored and foil heavily upon thc seat.  For a few moments Vyncr."writhed  in his despair. He did not ��������� think  of himself. He had ceased to cure  for. himself. Ho was dust and nshet.  Ho has killed his friend���������killed v the  friend whom ho loved, and who loved  liim. This was his life's real catastrophe, as he saw it. This was the  agony which wrung tho sob. from  him.  A police-officer touched him on the  shoulder.  "I nm sorry, Mr. Vynor," he said,  in a sympathetic voice, "but I must  arrest you."  "1 am ready to answer," said Vyncr brokenly.   And ho ivas led away.  ^ -g<������������S���������-g������<-<CiS-������������4i*������*C-g|gg.

Tho wise organizer of a picnic  chooses the picnic 'spot with reference  to shade and accessibility. A day  or two beforo tho picnic the list of  edibles  to, be  taken  should be writ-  morning, and claims thu infusion as  "tho favorite bovcrago of tho intellectual."  Another toa toper was Hazlitt, tho  essayist, who was not only vory fond  of tho beverage, but Booms to havo  drunk it of extraordinary strength.  We arc told on excellent authority  that he used two ounces for his  breakfast and two for his tea, with  cream; and that for this tea���������tho finest Soochong���������ho paid at first fourteen shillings and afterward twelve  shillings per, pound. Perhaps this "ex.  travagunt and excessive consumption  of tea may account for some of tho  essayist's quarrelsomeness.  Cowper, as we all know, appreciated; to the full the charm of the  fragrant leaf, bill thero is hardly sufficient evidence to-show that he was  guilty of undue indulgence. . Thc  most famous _ .toa toper was, of  course, '. Dr. Johnson, ��������� whoso:. feats  with the cup which Mrs.. Thralo filled  so assiduously arc too woll known  to need cnlargibg upon. His record  appears     to    have    been  twenty-five  ten out, togcthor with the   necessary j cups,  which    he drank at a sitting,  lv.  A few days afterwards, hc was  brought before the magistrate with  Alba. Alba elected to give evidence  for his master. Eminclino followed.  Vyner went into tho witness-box,  too. The case for the defence was  really the case for tho prosecution;  it could bo no other. The story oli-  cited "tlic sympathy of all who hoard  it. Strong men heard it with quivering lip.. Women wore seen to  weep. Tho voice of tho magistrate  trembled as he spoke.  "Mr. Vynor. and you.

There aro many other uses to which  these box linings may bo put.  (' A fine idea for puntry shelves is to  uso two coats of white paint and  then a finishing coat of whito enamel.- Wash the shelves with cold  water as soon as tho enamel dries,  and then it will harden quickly.

Still, Johnson told  Miss lioynolds in playful verso:  i  Thou canst,not make tho tea so fast  As I can gulp' it down.-.  And hc descrihed himself as a  "hardened and shameless 'tca'.'drinker,  who has for many years diluted his  meals with only the infusion of..this  fascinating plant; whoso kettle has  scarcely time to cool; who with tea  amuses tho evening, with toa solaces  the .midnight ar.d with toa welcomes  the  morning."

On  tho testator's death somo time afterwards MacCarthy sought out Mis*  Reilly in America and offered hor  marriage.

The keenness shown in gun practico accounts  for many big accidents. After evory  round fired' the gun is supposed to  bo carefully sponged, but it is well  kno_wn that this rule is "winked at"  to a very large extent, which accounts for the remarkablo results in  quick-firing attained on 'some occasions. Sponging a big gun moans  'delay. Jack consequently takes the  risk just for the chance of winning  at practice. Now an'd;; then there is  a big explosion through neglecting to  spongo properly. It seldom, happens,  that the real truth of the accident is  made known, and_although all the  handymen .coulcl tell, they simply  continue in their daringness.

As usual, ovorybody rushed hither  ���������and thither, throwing open tho doors  ���������and creating a splendid draught, under which tho fire flourished at once  ���������and gloriously.  In less than ten minutes from thc  first moment of tho alarm the uppor  ���������corridor was filled with smoke,  through which tongues of flames protruded. Flames wero also coming  from the windows of tho south wing,  and the crackling of timber and  shivering of glass mingled with- the  shouts and screams of tho terrified  household.  Ono of thc footmen had thc sense  to run and ring the great boll, and  its sonorous tones rose grimly abovo  . tho din which added to tho confusion. In un incredibly short time a  mob of villagers had gathered around  tho placo, and tho butler, who was  tho first to recover his presence of  .mind, got togother a band ot volunteers and supplied them with stable  {tnd house buckets-  There was an enormous tank on tho  top of tho south wing, which was  supposed to bo always filled with a  largo quantity of water available in  caso of fire, but though tho wator  was thero no ono seemed to know-  how to got at it, and tho only water that was thrown upon tho now  roaring flames was obtained from  tho stable taps.  The nearest firo brigade���������a volunteer one���������was five miles off, and  though tho butler had started Giles  oil on horseback to fetch it, an hour  -must olnpso before it could reach  tho Towers.

The scene baffled description. Tho  whole of tho south wing was now in  flames, and tho murky sky was lit  up, with a lurid glare, through which  now and again shot up a volume cf  sparks and smoko, as portions of  tho roof and the castellated coping  fell with a dull crash into the body  of thc fire.  Black and half mad with excitement tho little band of men with  frenzied zeal, leered on by tho mass  *of - spectators. -At intervals, -' carriages and horses j. bearing neighbors  and friends arrived, adding to tho  confusion, for none of them could do  any more than was already - boing  dono.

Lord Balfarras gavo tho countess  into tho charge of his wifo and rushed to tho houso; but ho could do no  morc than others, and stood gazing  upward with an anguish which ho  never forgot to the hour of hi3  death.  Tho whito figuro of Ireno stood motionless in tho hideous light of tho  flames, as if sho knew that sho was  doomed and was resigned, and_ her  very attitude almost drovo tho" spectators mad.  Suddenly- a shout went up "Tho  engine! the engine!" and a lano was  mado through which thc brigade  drovo tho horses at a wild gallop.  A hundred hands wore at tho firo-os-  capo ladder, but before it could be  undone aud run up to tho building a  figuro was soon to dart through tho  crowd, pause a moment under the  window, and then dart around to tho  back.  For a momont the flames lit up  tho figuro, and a cry of curiosity  aroso amid tho shrieks and yells.  "Who is it? A gypsy?" shouted  some one." "Sho was dressed like  one," was tho response. "I saw hor  red shawl. Whero's she gone���������who is  sho?"  No one seemed ablo to answer tho  question; and Madge, with no one to  hinder her, ilew around to tho walled  garden and through tlio door by  which Irene and she had gono out on  tho morning after hcr arrival at the  To���������wers. '  Hor faco was whito, but not with  fear. With set lips and flashing oyes  shc ran through tho hall and up the  stairs:  "Oh, God, don't lot mo be too  lato!", sho prayed. "Let* me savo  hor!

Tho captain of tho brigade ran up  tho escape-ladder. . -  "Jump!   One at a time!   Jump!"

Irono seemed to awake, and clutched .Madgo's arm.  "You, too, Madge!" she wailed,  then she hid her face on Madge's  bosom and shuddered. "I cannot���������I  cannot! But you go! Leave mo!

The large, showy  flowers of the nasturtium are frequently used along with the young  leaves in salad.

A SCIENCE  AND ART.  The distinction botween agriculture as a science and agriculture as  an art has boon so happily and ably  drawn by the renowned chemist.  Baron Von Licbig, that it is instructive to 'quote tho following passage  on this subject from that eminent  and most distinguished authority:  "Agriculture is both a science and  an art. Tho knowledge of all the  conditions of the life of vegetables  the-origin of their'elements and tho  sources of 'their nourishments form  its scientific basis: From this knowledge wo derive certain "rules for tho  exorcise of the art, the-principles upon which-the mechanical operations,  of farming depends, tho usefulness or  necessity of theso f6r'"prcpasing .tho  soil to support the growth of plan*.  'and for removing every obnoxious influence. No experience 'drawn from  tho exorcise of tho art can bo 'opposed to truo scientific principles because the latter should -include all  tho results of practical operations  and aro in somo instances solely derived therefrom. Theory must correspond -with tho experience 'because  it is nothing moro tlian a reduction  of a series of phenomena to their  last causes.   .  "A field in which "wo cultivate -the  same plant for several successive  years becomes barren, for that plant  in a period varying with tHe naturo  of the soil, in ono field it will bo'  throe, in another twenty, and in another a hundred years.  "One field boars wheat and" .no  peas; another beans or turnips. " but  no tobacco; a third gives a plentiful  crop of turnips, but will not bear  clover. What is the reason a field  loses 'its fertility for one plant, tho  samo which at first flourished "thoro?  .What is the reason one kind of "plant  su'c'cccdsV'iWhcre another fails? . -:;Tho  questions belong  to science.  "What means aro necessary to preserve to a field  its fertility for    one  and, tho samo  plant? What  to  ren-  fortilo  for  two,   for  in scientific principles, not only ob.  serves, but can account for this; and  whilo the farmer can only guess, the  latter knows what crop is belt suited to take tho placo of its predecessor* in any particular so'il; or if it  should so happen that ho required a  dillcrcnt crop from that which tho  soil would <best naturally suit he is  furnished with tho information which  enables him to supply such substances as this other crop mny require, and thus accomplish his desire.  Thore aro at the present day many  questions  connected with agriculture  one was taken in tho oithodox manner, that is, upon a laigc spoon  bait, with a triangular bit of pork  on the hooks.

N  Thubsdav, Sept. 21, 1905.  Governor Mackintosh.  Regina    Standard:      "Prominent  among tliose who participated in the  inauguration  of Saskatchewan   was  ex-Governor, the Eon. C. H. Mackintosh, who occupied the position from  1S93 to January 1898 when he resigned.  During his  regime the country was  greatly depressed; wheat crops were  the exception, and pricesrane-ing from  25 to 30 cents per bushel.   The Governor threw his whole heart into the  work of restoring confidence and inculcating- hope     and    p_.ie_.co.    The  result proves  that   he was correct.  Many thought at the time that he was  unduly  optimistic.     Over  and  over  again he declared that within a few  years the Territories would astonish  the world, and thousands crowd into  their various districts.   Added- to this  he organized a Territorial Exhibition  out on the prairie, over 8,000 entries  being    made.      It    was  a   marvellous    success, ." and    did   much    to  make  the    entire    country   known  abroad.   It was thought then that too  much  money was  expended.     Now  people know better, for at that critical  period failure would have been fatal.  Since   then   cities like Winnipeg and  New Westminster have been assisted  by the Federal Government to the extent  of  $50,000  each  for Dominion  Exhibitions.     The   ex-governor  was  _lndefatigable_inb_s_eflforts_to_n_ake_the  Territories known,   and   the  hearty  greeting he received during his brief  visit proved  that all    classes  were  grateful for his loyalty to the Territories,"  A Well-Handled Enterprise.

Mclnnis, member of the provincial parliament, and Rev. J. L. Gordon.  The  Governor was  escorted  to the  building by a military company with  the directors and city officials in carriages.    A striking address was made  by Dr.  fdclnnis,  M.P.P.   He said he  was glad of the chance to make public  announcement of his conversion from  a critic of the movement to an ardent  supporter.-    When it was first proposed  to erect  a  building,   to  cost  $_0,000, he  with .others, had thought  hose   making  the   proposal   "idiotic  enthusiasts," but now he was not only  convinced of the utility of the work,  but also that it ought to have the best  possible  building, $75,000 being none  too much, on account of. the great  growth in population in the Northwest.

We are pleased  to  be able to announce with most definite authority a  greatly improved train service for the  6. & O. branch  for  the future.     On  Monday's train was General Superintendent Marpole and other high officials of the O. P. R.   These were interviewed at the station by the reeve.  and a committee of business men, who  were assured that arrangements were  now completed for a decided change  in the service of  the  branch.   Under  the new arrangement a second train  has been put on to handle all the way  freight . business  from  Revelstoke to  "Armstrong.    The present regular passenger and express will handle only  carload freight to this point and the  local freight;at Vernon.   The new anr1.  improved service will   be greatly appreciated by the Valley, and the C. P.  R. officials are deserving of the gratitude   of  the   residents for taking the  above mentioned steps in the matter.  As to the service for the winter there  is  every  reason  to believe the daily  service will be continued.���������Armstrong  Advance.  and let the  contract for a building, to cost $75,C00.  The canvass has enlisted widespread  interest.some 7C3 persons already having made pledges. The intelligent  interest of the farmers is attested by I  pledges__aggregat_ing_nearly._$7,0C0_in  amounts of S3 to $500 each, forty of  them being $100 each. To no other  Association building in North America  have farmers contributed so generously. The forty-two dormitories will  yield a good revenue; 700 members are  estimated. As tho Association will  conduct tbe only physical work in the  city, the gymnasium has received particular attention (size, 37 by 78). Like  most Western towns there is no good  place to swim, so that the pool ought  also to be a good attraction (size, 20 by  ���������10). A bowling green will be put on  the lawn outside. There is not a tub  bath in the building. ' The Association  hall is small, seating otalyJiM, but by  the use of accordion doors lecture  rooms can be utilized, making accommodations for about 2CD more.���������Association Men.

"Rev. W. E. Prescott, pastor of  Wesley Methodist church, and Mi's.  Prescott have just returned from a  five weeks' trip up the coa������t, during  which they visited many of the mis  sion stations of the church and went  80 miles from Hazelton into the  Bulkley Valley, says the Vancouver  News-Advertiser. -- Mr. Prescott is  greatly impressed with the immense  resources of this part of the province  and of the possibilities of the district.  " Once the railway is built through  there, as proposed," he remarked 'last  evening, "there should be great opportunities iu the Bulkley Valley. It  does not need me to tell of tbe mineral  riches which have been discovered,  but at the junction of the Telqua river  I saw a seam of coal sixteen feet wide,  and was told that coal was found all  through the valley. Our guide had a  fine specimen of gold-copper ore  which he was about to bring out to be  assayed, and from what I could learn  the prospectors have many valuable  claims there. With the coal, there  should be great possibilities for the  development of mining.  . "As-to agriculture, the country  seems^to be superbly-adapted for .this  , purpose. Fine, ' rolling *' land, with  large areas on which only gross five  feet long grows, and surrounded with  -patches of timber just the size for  making fences and such like. The  timber, while ot good size, is not as  heavy or as large as that in < this portion of tbe province. I bi ought out  some specimens of wheat and - barley  which could  not, be. surpassed any-  * where, and" had a sample of rye which  -was nine'.feet'in length. -Some-oats  which I bave show- that- the. grain is  well filled out. ^ I saw excellent fields  , of field and garden pioduce, and gieat  ������ beds of flowers.

Until there are better" transportation  facilities, there***-will not be many  people in the Bulkley.  ~r '' I was greatly interested in being  asked by a Roman Catholic family to  hold a service while I was at their  house. The woman stated tbat I was  the first minister, she- had -seen since  she went in there, and, the remark  was-passed that the -> invocation I  offered was the first prayer made in  thejvaliey.  " Residents of llritish Columbia  cannot speak with authoiity on the  natural charms of the province until  they have seen the varied charms of  the Skeena River scenery. The great  rush of water in the rivers, the ning-  niflcent mountains, the iuiraente  rolling stretch-s, combine to muke a  scene unsurpassed. On the way down  the Bulkley vve were for a couple of  days within sight of glaciers. They  were a long way-off, but the fact that  it took so long to pass them was an  indication of their great Bize."  Rev. Mr. Prescott states that the  hire of horses from Hazelton is only  75 cents per day with saddle, which is  about the one cheap thing. Hay sells  in Hazelton at from $10 to $50 per ton,  and bacon, is 89 cents per pound. The  , hay is baled in tbe Bulkley and packed  to Hazelton. p  i Pit was his intention to have gone  beyond the Nnaz, the most northerly  point reached on the tiip, and visit  Southeastern Alaska, hut this part  was omitted so that, the Tees would  not be missed on her downward trip.  -1COAST  DISTRICT.  - Notice is hereby given that the reservation  notice of -which was publiBhed'in theB. 0  Gazette, and dated 9th August, 1901, covering a  bull of land extending bauk a distance of ten  miles on each side of the Skeena River, be-  tu esu Kilsilas Canyon and Hazelton, is cancelled. * -  Notice is also gl . en tbat tbat portion of the  resei .ation, notice of which was^publisbed in  the B.

TAGGART'S    KIDNEY DISEASE  CURED BY DODD'S  KIDNEY PILLS.  Well-known Tilbury East Farmer  Tells How Easily He Got Rid of  His Trouble.  Tilbury, Ont., July 31���������(Special).  ���������Mr. Wm.- Taggart. a well-known  aud highly esteemed farmer of Tilbury Kast, tells of his remarkable  cure of long standing Kidnoy Disease by Dodd's Kidney Pills.  "For about four or fivo years,"  says Mr. Taggart, "I was a sufferer  from Kidney Trouble, and tho scores  of medicines I usod gavo mo no relief. I was forced to got up three  or four times every night and my  lifo was simply miserable.  "At last I started to uso Dodd's  ICIdnoy Pills and I get relief from  tho lirst. After using two boxes I  was completely cured, and you can  bet I was a happy man. I cannot  speak too highly of Dodd's Kidney  Pills."  All urinary complaints are caused  by Diseased Kidneys. Dodd's Kidney  Tills always cure thc Kidneys and  therefore always curo urinary complaints.

Tho subject, {having boon provided  with matter - to read wliile tho experiment was in progress, was then  locked in the room, that became instantly ',  HERMETICALLY   SEALED.  On tho opposite wall of the room  from where'the pationt was breathing through his tubo thero was lot  into the wall a plunger-like arrangement consisting of a leather plunger  sliding in a cylinder and controlled  from tho outside by the inventor himself, who had gauged tho longth of  in; strokes  sufficient  to  release  and    in-  trade   und   thc   resources   to   a  e.itcnt   aro   different,   tho   two  tries have had little in common,  liut   while   the     principle    of  at  whilst, driving  through  the. streets   this  country  and  abroad   during    tho  Hut while the principle of tho """ "*v.��������� ���������"*;,. ���������������������������������������������������*���������  equality and independence of both parsed ���������lt-��������� U"-' attemp  kingdoms   is     fully   recognized     and,of   Ir<^olT-   ooing  tried  in  carried out in their wholo internal  administration, this has not boen tho  case with tho conduct of foreign affairs. According to tho constitutions  of both countries tho King had a  very free hand in these matters ho  could loavo them to tho Swedish  Minister of Foreign - Affairs��������� as he  generally, did���������or he could havo them  prepared and treated by a Norwegian, if the question was of particular interest for this country; but,  whatever courso ho adopted, these  matters wero not subject to parliamentary control in either of the  states.        >  FREE  ALLIANCE.  While the Norwegian always have  regarded tho union as an alliance of  two free, mutally independent states  for the defence of common interests |  against any hostile attempt from  outside, the Swedes, from the very  beginning, have seen in the union an  extension of power for their country,  and a compensation for tho loss of  Finland, which was ceded to Russia  In 1809. They have, therefore, always tried to gain an ever increasing preponderance in tho conduct of  foreis-ii affairs. From their point of  riew, being tlie greater and richer  nation, this was perhaps only natural- but it was not just to Norway  *_nd contrary to the principles upon  Rhich the union was  based.  INJUSTICE TO  NORWAY.  In 1S35 Sweden decided that foreign affairs should be laid before tho  King and settled in a council of three  Swedish Ministers, one of whom was  to be the Primo Minister, and that  thcir  thc  coi.1    of yt* Pcf c'rsburB by no ������thc>*'   than  n"   Vera  Sassulitch.      She  was  at  onco  soi/cd     by    the    soldiery,     and  was  attempted murder  the  ordinary  manner;  but,   to   thc  amazement  bf the public, she was acquitted.  On hor release tho Nihilists gathered about her, desiring to admit  such a friend * of the people to their  closest acquaintance. In this way sho  was admitted to all their privato  circles and was made acquainted with  their secrets. These sho at once communicated to the Russian Government. The truth was that the whole  business, including the attempt on hi.s  life, was faked by Trepoff himself,  and it was simply a clever ruso to  get from the Nihilists what could not  be got in any othcr way. Thereafter  Vera Sassulitch played tho part of  Government spy on innumerable occasions.  FROM SPY TO COUNTESS.  There succeeded lier as tho Czar's  cliief spy one Emma Bcilorno, who became the Countess Delia Torre. Sho  was a woman of great mental ability  and boundless ambition, and when  her husband died she offered her services as special secret agent to tho  Czar, and soon becamo indispensable  to the Russian court. Whenever a  document had to bo secured, she secured it, and she allowed nothing,  not even a life, to stand in. her way.  I3y ono remarkable and dramatic coup  early in her career she obtained the  unbounded confidence of the Czar.  Information had been received by the  Russian secret police that a * plot  against the monarch was boing  hatched conjointly in Home and  Paris. It wus suspected that the  plot wag to be carried out through  the  last score of years in search of a  euro or preventive of all lung diseases, tho invention of Peter Lord  has como to tho assistance of medical  crease     alternately     the  atmospheric  pressure on tho body of the subject.  Fifteen pounds to tho square inch  is the pressuro on the .human bedy  under  normal   conditions,   and    when  research at tho moment that tho two pounds 'of thi.s are withdrawn by  wholo world is crying "open air." j tho drawback of the plunger the  "Plenty of fresh opon air and tho'pressure, . becoiAing less, *-ompelled  germs of consumption cannot thrive.'j tho patient'-to unknowingly ' and  "It is just this question of finding without effort inhale a far greater  a means of furnishing plenty of fresh quantity of pure oxygen than could  air or oxygen to the sick and dying | be drawn into tho lungs under tho  that has occupied all my spare timo! ordinary - conditions of breathing  during tho last three years," said tho  when" the    pressure   was     at     fifteen'  inventor to  a correspondent.  "Several years ago tho talk of necessity of plenty of exercise in order  to keep tho circulation of tho body  woll up to tho normal started mo lo  thinking that if some means  might be produced" to compel this  circulation without energy on tho  part of tho person benefiting it might  be thc causo of helping to sustain life  longer than has been the average under the conditions of the past, whero  modicine nlone  is  brought  into  play.  "1 realized then as I do now    that  pounds.  "Now, I cannot say as to how far  this invention will go in the medical  world! but we all know that thero  are certain portions of the lungs that  are never used, and if the germs of  tuberculosis become seated thero, how  can there be any salvation for a person so afflicted except through tho  uso of such an apparatus as I have  invented?" said the- enthusiastic mechanic.  "It is somewhat similar to washing out a rag that has been used in  MAKING THE PANAMA HAT.  Material is Costly and thoy Aro  Woven by Hand.'  Much misconception exists" ns to  tho construction of tho Panama hat.  Many aro under thc impression that  they aro mado in. Panama and nre  woven under water. Tho latter belief is entirely wrong, though it is  true that tho majority of Panamas  aro mado in South America. A lui'go  number now, howover, are made in  London  and also on tho continent.  Tho hats, of course, are made of  grass. It is very scarce, and can only bo obtained from Equador, Colombia, and Guayaquil in South Amcr-  ca. It costs a_out $1.25 per pound,  wholesale price. It is very line material, about 18 inches to 2-1 inches  in longth. lt takes a woman from  soven .to ten days to weavo a hat,  working eight hours a day. It is  then bleached a pure whilo, and after being thoroughly seasoned by  giving "them a" sun-bath they are  passed to tho pressing department  for tho final touches.  .Tho cheapest Panama made costs  about 54-00 wholesale. The reason  why they tiro so dear is because thoy  are made by hand. Tho finer tho  straw or grass the" dearer the hat.  Probably the highest pi-ico over given  for a Panama was $700, which was  tho sum. paid only two summers ago  for ono of theso wonderful creations.   *-.

Through unwarrantable fear-.-:-.' of  catching cold from every breath of  an-, many people house themselves,  both day and night, in rooms and  apartments that are little better than  air-tight      chambers. They    force  themselves to breathe an atmosphere  that is deficient in oxygen and contaminated with carbonic acid and  othcr poisonous gases. And, as a  rule, they have their rooms excessively warm. A good fire in an open  fireplace may carry part of the contaminated air away with the smoke,  but steam-radiators and other heating devices which require neither air-  ducts nor Hues in no way diminish  the impurity.  The edects of breathing vitiated nir  are especially pernicious to the  health of children. They are generally manifested first in (he nervous  system by the production of drowsiness and mental dulness. Poisonous  mattcis that are normally exhaled  by the lungs and skin arc retained in  increasing quantities in* the blood.  They lender it impure, and a form  of anaemia is soon produced. This  becomes apparent in pallor of countenance, languor, weakness, depression and loss of appetite. The power  of resisting disease is diminished and  a condition of chronic invalidism is  ultimately  developed.  Thc droad of drafts now becomes  Justifiable, for. in the debilitated  state or the system, even the currents of cold air that descend, from  the windows and walls increase the  susceptibility to infection to such an  extent that the form of disease acquired depends only upon thc kind  of infectious agents that gain access  to the body. No more favorable opportunity can be afforded for the  growth of the germs of tuberculosis,  influenza, pneumonia, ar cerebrospinal  meningitis. And e\en when germs do  not enter the body, there may be a  physical decline that will terminate  in fatal disease of some of tbe vital  organs  The exclusion of fresh air is a radical mistake that should bc corrected  before permanent damage has been  done. The -practice of ventilation  can be learned best during the summer season, when drafts are least  noticeable. After one lias become  accustomed to the bieathing of pure  air, the oppressive closeness of, an  unventilated room is intolerable. -,  While this habit is being acquired,  however, the body should be strengthened against sensitiveness to drafts  by systematic bathing in cold water.  I'he cold*of winter then produces an  agreeable stimulation of the nervous  sjstem, and a* moderate draft need  not be feaied.���������Youth's Companion.  it'll .ivi'.v1^  ._>;ij  J*M  ' 7 >1  --?_������  ._������  ;:.w,5_Ss?8.|  mmm  '* ,&sl_^  itsi  mm  mi  Jiieen of_oui*_Henry__VI--,_or grown on j "'-Oca or_the chemist to the mak-  tho fields near tiie Hodetha), in t_c!lne "1? of an important and intricate  neighborhood    of  the   fairy    haunted  with  just  as great  caro ns .'the    teal11"10"^ Jlls followeis.

He got   up  -      ���������       . -         rs-        --���������   o-'-      -r  happy thoy   look   working    away as  from where he lay and went into the  their- tongues   keep  tune    to     theii   circle of conspirators, and stood     in  hands. Rapidly they pick out the  bad peas and allow the good to fall  through a hole in tho desk into a  bagbeneath. This bag seed, when  carefully separated, is used for feeding purposes. In an ordinary way  these women pick from fivo to ' six  bushels a day; but should the peas be  weathered, as in thc last season, it  might take two days to pick a single bushel.  "Wonderful to tell, the seedsman  has also his incubator. In a room  at the top of onu of thc buildings are  found hundreds of small pots containing growing seeds. Theso are the  tests to ascertain whether or not tho  soeds will really grow, and in ^his  way every lot of seed which comes  into tho warehouse is at onco sampled���������that is, fifty or* 100-seeds nre  counted out and placed in thc testing  chamber. Tho results of theso  growths are recorded in a book, and  later transferred by the testing man  into tho large locked ledgers which  have been "already mentioned; thus  percentages of the growths are obtained.  "I'o prove the correctness" of theso  results a duplicate sample of seeds, is  put into an incubator, much after  the fashion adopted by the scientist  to propagate his bnsilli.

And then the little man gave  the word of command to the other  conspiratois to take thc Zulu ringleader and tic him up to the wagon,  and so strange a thing is thc will,  they obeyed him, although reluctantly Then thc puny Englishman used  his siambok until he was exhausted  and  thc man  well  punished.

Cats and dogs are treated differently in China as regars preparation for  tho table, the former being; skinned  before cooking, while thc latter are  killed and simply soused in boiling  water to remove the hair, after the  manner, wo servo our pork. A" littlo  hair is invariably left * oh the end������������������' of  the tail to show the color, of the animal, the meat of the black "dog being  worth twice as much as that of his  yellow relative.   -}   It's, no use trusting to Providence  ff you find your pastime in .tickling  the motor end of a mule.  HINTS FOR THE SICK ROOM.  Anv thing more distressing to a  sick pei =on than watery, ill-flavored  gruel can hardly be imagined- and the  power of digestion is often mateual-  Iv weat-oned by the dislike taken to-  the cairlcsslv made food.* To all  gruel. C-en if sweetened, a little salt  is necessary to make it palatable,  and all lumps should be_ carefully  stiained out Then seive* if thick,  in a pretty littlo china bowl on a  plate. Ha\e a light tray, vith a  napkin or doyley, and arrange the  dish- of gruel with a spoon, fresh  napkin, and if allowed, a few i^ngei-  like pieces of bread, or toast, or a  light water of some kind.  If the gruel must be thin take all  the ipore care in flavoring it, and let  the cup bo a dajnty one.  Core in these respects will cost -  only a little thought, for it_ takes  little more time to do a thing daintily than to do it in a rough wav.  For a few cents bright colored bowls  and odd dishes may bc picked up, so  that even if by a nervou" movement,  the slip of a weak hand, something  is broken it will matter little, and  e\en tho invalid will not have a regret for the thing which does not be-"  long tp any set.  ���������Egg��������� Cruol���������Beat-the-.v oik��������� of���������one-  egg woll, add one teaspoon of sugar.  Stir in "one cup of scalding milk and  grate nutmeg over it, or;add one  teaspoon of vanilla. Then add tho  white of. thc egg beaten very stiff.  Cracker Gruel���������Four teaspoons of  fine cracker crumbs, one. cup. of milk,  onc cup of hot water, salt to ta-ste.  Put. the ;water, and milk on the'stovo  together until hot,; then add . cracker  crumbs.  Cornmeal Gruel���������Two; teaspoons of  cornmeal, one tablespoon of flour to  one quart of boiling water or half  milk, and holf water. Mix flour and  cornmerl with cold Water, add tho  boiling water and cook one hour.  Salt.  Barley Gruel���������Stir two tablespoons  of bailey into two quarts of freshly  boiling water. Boil three to four  hours. Milk may be added if desired. Strain through a sieve and  sweeten to suit the taste.  .. Oatmeal Gruel���������Put four tablespoons of oatmeal into one pint of  boiling water; add i teaspoon of salt  and boil without stirring for thirty  minutes. Strain in a sieve, rubbing  through as much oatmeal as possible.  Have ready one egg well beaten, add  one teaspoon of powdered sugar Reheat the gruel and pour over the  egg. Mix carefully and serve Whipped cream may be a substitute for  the egg, and makes an exceedingly  nice, gruel.  FOR TIRED FEET.  When the feet ore weary and tender  through long standing or walking  during the dav there is nothing which  will give more relief than a warm  foot-bath in' which has been dissolved a handful or two of sea salt.  Bathe the feet and limbs with this  for about ten minutes, and then rub  them well with a good rough towel.  TTie effect is delightfully refreshing,  and, if you do' this just before going,  to bed, insomnia, for that night at  any rate, is not likely to troubU  you.  ftp.;*.!  ������-31  mm  Sall.1  ���������Msi*M\  >sa������*-.-l  .'W-BHSl  >ym  i������Ml  "Pirn Ar-  .-������.  ���������SUe.

David Draper, the discoverer of  the Pretoria diamond mines of South  Africa,' is now iri this country, and  will do considerable ^prospecting" for  diamonds here. Jn.a recent interview  Mr. Draper said :    ,  "My presence in   this, country   is  proof positive of my belief that tliere  xva rich deposits of   diamonds .here.  iSvery indication points that way.   "It  was 29 years ii.fl.ci. the first diamonds  were found : in   Pretoria  when -their  sources wero discovered in Reitfontcin  aud othfi- points.  "In tin? case of tho  Kimberley initios the interval of time  between tho finding of the stones and  the location of the: sources of .supply  was much greater.   Many lociilitiis n  the-United  Stales have yielded  diamonds'.   It has been the idea ofV sonic'  scientists that they cnuldbe  traced to  a sourcn in" Canada,   but  this theory  docs.not'impress,-lie lit all.    'T-believe  that  theie aie a number of sources  and   that   the    stones  found   in  the  ghicial diift will eventually be proved  to have come irom  many  points.    In  the "case   of   the   Kentucky,    North  Carolina and possibly  the   Alabama  and Georgia diamonds,  the situation  is   entiiely   different.     There   is   no  glacial diilt there and  the somce of  supply should ba sought  for close to  the place where tlie gems were found.  Tbey are associated with the minerals  that may tie looked for in the volcanic  'pipes,' which are usually the home of  diamonds. ' It is unquestionable that  these ^minerals,  or   indications, _may  exist'without  diamond:*,   but where  thcy ate present wii.b the diamonds it  is fair to conclude   that   the   original  foi ination of diamond-bearing rock is  not far away.    I   will   go   slow,  and  when I stop my  investigations I will  have satUfied myself one way  or the  other as to the outlook.    Even if my  discovei ies were to exceed my  richest  hopes the opening up   of  new fields  would in no way influence the price of  diamonds.   The number of gems,"~put  out   now   would . have   been   looked  upon as suicidal by the tiade not  so  very long since,  but in spite of the  incieased output the market has been  steadily advancing."
