Alberta Wheat in Competition

Coveted Prize at the Portland Fair.
Alherta winter who.it, iu competition with winter wheat raised in
Washington, Oregon and California,
can ied off the gold 1ned.1I for excellence at tho Lewis^& Clarke Fair at
Portland. .Largely as a lesult of this
fact lnnnigi.ition from all pints of the
United States into Alheita will follow.
The Alberta winter wheat shown at
Portland attracted an enormous
amount of attention because of its
supeiloi'lty to the wheat of Washington, Oregon and California, und -the
fact that it'cai'iied off the gold medal
in competition with the pioduct of all
those Pacific coast st.ites boats evidence as to its excellence.
.The wheat was exhibited by the 0.
P. K. and no fewer th.in four thousand
sample bottles of the grain weie dis-
-tributed giatis to interested agiicul-
turists from all parts of the United
States. The xesult was that the land-
office maintained in Portland iiy the
Dominion Government was besieged
for inf 01 mat-inn concerning lands
available for settlement in Southern
Alberta. Jinny men after obtaining
this "information left for Albeita to
look over tho land and its possibilities.
-JA, large number of-those who became inteiested in Albeita through
the exhibit were people ft om eastern
parts bf .the United States, wiio had
come "west_ to look at tho lands of
Oregon and .Washington, and'-' not
being satisfied'jwitlj them they were

Vancouver, Oct. 10. ��� The police
made an exciting capture, this morning of a man named Andre Harmand,
alias Ermy, for ""murder in Montana.
He left Nelson Thuisday night by the

The, evidence which has already^
como into the hands of the" police
seems sufficient tp prove that Camille
Kemy, the man who was ai rested by
Detectives Mulhern and Wadell Monday morning, is the person wanted for
the biutal muider of W.J. Oliver at
-Wolf Cieek.-Montr,���on-September 23
last. =
A further search of Itemy's possessions was made and a 10 size gold
filled, bunting case Waltham was
found bearing the initials engraved on
the back of W. J. O. und 011 the inside
the inscription ("From Mamma to
Wason." The case' is numbered 0,172,-
C2_, und the works No. 8,573,307. The
police believe that the letteis W. J. O.

his^ cell at the police station and beyond piotesting most vigorously
against the accommodations, has nothing to say except that be admitted
that he was in Calishell two or three
weeks ago. He has made no statement as to what he was there for or
why be left.
Afurther examination of his correspondence shows that he is well connected in Palis, wheie his brother is
president of the Mutual Benefit society
w ith offices at 205 Rue Lafayette. He
appaiently came to America in 1002
was in Montreal a while and then
came west living in Battleford and

checks among his possessions might
bo taken to indicate thut hc was a
timekeeper or some such employee on
construction. no apparently has a

not given. Among his possessions are

The* steamer was ploughing'along
under full head steam last Wednesday
afternoon. A heavy northern sea was
"running, but the-weather conditions
were far fiom unpleasant and the big
boat's decks weie ciowded with passengers. The steerage deck^ was
ciowded with inert y-makers, aud there
was nothing to indicate an approaching disaster when,.suddenly the big
vessel hitched to port and.scooped up

amidships on the port and swept clear
across the steeiage deck completely

bin ied so deep that the passengers on
the deck above the steerage w'ere submerged to their waists as tbe immense
volume of water rolled aft then suiged

in the rail was smashed and through
this opening fivo of the helpless ones
who had been caught' by the wave
were swept to their death. Others

Timid persons who watch with
great intentness every chango occurring in their physical state and magnify every little deviation froni the

alarmed by thc presence of spots bofore the eyes.
They are sure the motes nro of dire
import, presaging weakened vision,
if not total blindness. Thcy are
constantly looking for thcm; thc Inst
thing before going to bed is to look
at tho light nnd the first thing on
waking in tlio morning is to look
toward the window* to sco if tho
specks are still dancing in tho eye.
Thcy nre. of course, for almost every

them. Tho reason why wo do not

have no significance ���whatever,; Thcy
are simply the shadows cast' upon
the retina by wandering cells in tho
humors of the eyeball."
If thcy are seen in largo numbers
so as to cause great annoyance, a
dose of salts will often alter the
patient's bilious state so that he will
become moro cheerful and ���in condition to ignore the motes in his eye.

As the face is more exposed to sun

cleansing it. Soften the skin with

then apply thoroughly a good cold

leave a few impurities in the pores.

Some weeks ago visitors to a certain establishment in Chicago wore
confronted with a notico to the following elTect: "hoarders taken by
day, week, or month. Thoso who
do not pay will be taken by the
nock." This straightforward announcement, though it may have
mado tho conscious-stricken tremble,
excited almost as much hilarity as
tho earnest request posted in tho
bedrooms of a small hotel in the
Juras: "Strange gentlemen will to

That this notice was not unnecessary can bc deduced from tho fact
that the evening dress worn by men
has frequently created a sensation
among those unaccustomed to it.
Indeed, a famous actor who donned
evening- dress on one occasion when
invited to dinner in a town out on
tho Western plains almost caused a
riot, so anxious wero tho cowboys to
soo the strange apparition, and it
was only by conveying thoir guest to
a public building, and charging fifty

But it is feared that some wandering wag of British nationality must
have been nt' work upon a notice
observed last autumn in nn hotel on
the summit of a Swiss mountain.
The sign in question originally read:
"Accommodation for travellers by
horse, cycle, or motor-ear"; but, in
order to bring it abreast of the
times, some individual unknown added the words "or by motor-boat."
A Borno newspaper three years ago

Richard   Parker    Rose From'Seaman to be "President of
the Floating Republic."
Somewhat over a century ago,
when England was lighting for hor
life, a mutinous spirit spread liko
tho plague through a great part of
tlie fleet. And^ strange to say, our
Government was almost as helpless
in face" of tho outbreak as Kussia
found  herself.
Our famous mutiny of the Noro
commenced- on .April 14th, 1797.
Quito, unsuspicious ' of disaffection
among his men, Admiral Bridport
gave the order for the Channel
Squadron to proceed to sea. But
the seamen of his own ship, instcad
of obeying the order, ran up the
shrouds, nnd gave threo cheers���tho
uppointed signal of rebellion to tho
whole Hoot. The" men then made a
demand for an advance in wages, to
the amount of 30s. per month; and
an increase in their allowance of
provisions. AVe woro at war with
Spain, France, and Holland, and nothing remained to the Government
but to yield to tho. men's demands.
Order was quickly restored, nnd the
ships set sail���all. but three, which'
woro  loft behind.''
But, curiously, our Government
was as slow to carry out its promise as the Russian hierarchy. On
May Tth, a much moro serious mutiny broko out on*the-ships moored
at the Norc. It began whon Admiral Colpoys ordered the mon to go
below and remain quiet. They obeyed at first, but very soon tried to
forco their way on deck. Admiral
Colpoys thereupon ordered thc ""Marines to Ore. Only a few oflicors
Tho Marines throw down their arms
and, tho men, coming on deck, seized
Lieutenant Bover, put a'ropy round
his' neck, and prepared to hang
him. But. with fine bravery, the
admiral stepped forward, saying: "If
anyone is to blame it is T. I gave
the  order  to  fire."
He and his officers were seized and
locked in thoir cabins for twenty-
four hours, after which thoy wero
sent  ashore.
Thon followed a terrible state of
things, under the leadership of Richard Parker, who, from an ablo-
seaman, suddenly roso to be "President of the Floating Republic."
The mutineers paraded Sheernesss
with red flags, took 'ships out of
the harbor, sent boats up the river
to win over thc ships lying at
Long Reach. Thoy stopped merchant ships going up and down, and
effected a veritable blockade of

-Soon,     however,     three     mutinous
ships deserted.     Then,  on  June Oth.

Next day the oflicors of the Leopard
with a few loyal seamen, succeeded

bringing  away   the  ship. On  May
13th Parker's own ship, the Sandwich, surrendered, and that was tho
end  of  Lhe mul iny.
Porker nnrl a number of tho loading spirits were- tried by court-martial, nnd hanged on June P.Oth. Tho
men of the whole fleet, however, got

monlh. an increased allowance of
provisirni, ,fiiH" pay while suffering
wounds,     nnd     olher   advant-
considered     sufliciont  to  justify
hanging of thirteen men.
Tho men of the frigate Danaa mutinied in 1800, and took tho ship
into tho enemy's port. And at Malta, in 3807, a mutiny broke out,
which had a terrible ending for tho
men. Tt commenced on April -th,
and lasted till the 12th, on which
day, fearing tho consequences, the
mutineers exploded COO barrels of
gunpowder,  and
Perhaps tho most interesting of all
Bsitish mutinies was that of II.M.S.
Bounty, in 1789, which gave us tho
little colony of Pitcairn Island. The
Bounty, under the command of Admiral Bligh, went to Otahoito, for
the purpose "of bringing away some
bread-fruit for acclimitisation in tho
West -Indies. For six months tho
shi]) lay there, and tho luxurious and
froo life demoralized the men. Soon
after" the Bounty sailed' with her
cargo, twenty-three of' tho men seized thc captain while .asleep, with
eighteen of tho crew, put them in a
small, opon boat, with only 150 lbs.
of bread, 32 lbs. of pork, and 28
gallon.-, of water, and cast thcm
adrift. It seemed virtual murder.
But, b.v tho skfll and courage of Admiral Bligh, tho frail craft was kept
afloat for throe months, and travelled 3,618 iniles to the island" of
Timor, off Java. From here, Captain Bligh and the twelve surviving
men sailed to London.
The mutineers, meanwhile, mado
for Tahiti. Thoy quarrelled violently among - themselves, and half of
them 'deserted' on touching land.
Many of these were captured later
on by tho Pandora, and brought to
Portsmouth, where three of the ringleaders were hanged. Those who remained in the Bounty disappeared,
no  ono Icnew  whither.
But twenty years later a British
ship stopped by accident at Pitcairn
Island, and the crow were astonished to find a happy community bf
half-breeds ' there, with one white
man���all of -whom spoke English.
Then tho 'terrible history was told
them how the nine mutineers, with
eighteen natives . of Tahiti, landed,
in 1790," burned ' the "Bounty, and
commenced a lifo of drunkenness,
treachery and murder.���London Answers.

Whito and trembling���������seeming to  have aged by years in a single moment���������he paused in thc middlo of tho  room and glanced round hiin despairingly, liko a muni momentarily  expecting utlack from nny sitle.^ Tho  farther door, which led into tho hall,  was closed, tho windows were shuttered nnd barred, and he was alone,  lie moved quickly, though with  faltering steps, and unlocking a  drawer of tho writing-table took out  li revolver, which he laid on tho  I)lotting-pud. Then walking close  to tho wall, so that he was screened  from view of anyone outsido the  conservatory, ho drew thc heavy curtains across thc half-glass doors.  Even above thc rattlo of the curtain  rings upon the pole ho heard thc  tapping on thc pane of the conservatory.  Ho stumbled back to the writing-  table and, falling into thc chair,  took up tho revolver and examined  It. Satisfied that it wa. loadod in  all livo chambers, he threw himsolf  forward on liis face on tho table and-  woun 1 his- arms about his head to  shut out the sound of the spasmodic tapping, tapping on tho glass of  the conservatory.  It was 'an impressive picture��������� tho  big, dignified old man, surrounded  by almost overy luxury money could  provide, bent in body and broken in  spirit by abject foar come suddenly  upon him If some of his clients  could have scon within thc library of*  Sulton House ut that moment there  would havo been a second i-un on  the bank next m���������rning, but ono  vory different from tho first, which  occurred tho day following the arrest of Cyril Webb, the cashier, on  a ohargc of embezzlement, now a  twelve-., car-old event; for Sir Basil's  whole attitude typified ruin, and tho  destinies of . himself" and Sturton's  . Bank wore so inseparably linked  that one could not fall and leave tho  other standing.   ' *��������� . _,  Presently ho became aware that tho  tapping had  ceased.       Hc raised his  head and Listened intently. Hc liston-  " ed long.  , There" was no, sound     but  Sir Basil, with a feeble effort to  spcak sternly. "You have no justification for coming here so late at  night. Tho penalty you suffered was  the penalty prescribed bv law for  tho offenco of which a British jury���������  not I���������found you guilty. If tho object of your visit is to get mo to  help you to a fresh start in lifo, I  will remind you that 5'our crime  nearly ruined tho bank. If you  have como with the idea of blackmailing mo by suggesting thnt I  was a party to your crime, I assuro  you that you are not in a position  to threaten mo. You nro a convicted felon, and that fact would mako  your oath of less valuo In a court of  law than my slmplo word."  Webb buried his faco in his hands  and wept, his bowed shoulders trembling with tlio strength of his emotion. But no sound escaped him  for some moments. Then suddenly  he dashed the tears from his eyes  and started to his feet, shaking wilh  passion.  "Givo mo hack my name, my character, tho respect of my fellow-  men!" he cried, with a gesture of  passionate appeal. "Givo mo back  my right to liold my head erect and  to speak with honest peoplo!

"You cannot givo mo back tho  best years of my lifo, nor my wife;  but you can 'restoro ,me to respectability and help me to Iind my child.

Seeing the light, the man tapped upon the glass.  "Who aro - you?" inquired tho  banker, speaking through thc letter-dap '  "Open the door," replied a cold,  even voico.  "What do you want?"  -   "Open  tho    door,  Sturton,"     saih  tho  voice,     dropping     to  a   slightly  lower  key.       "Open tho  door or     T  shall  ring until  tho servants como."  Quietly  Sir;Basil   pulled  back  tho  bolts and turned tho key;  slowly ho  _ opened     the     door;   noiselessly     the  man  in  the porch stepped  in,    whon  the banker    closed ' the    door     and  nervously  led     the  way   to" the   library. ~  Tho visitor closed thc library-door  ^. and turn������d the key in the lock.

As Sir Basil stood thc candlestick  upon tho writing-table and blew out.  the light, with a quick movement hc  laid a paper over the revolver upon  the blotting-pad.  "Sit down and tell mo what you  want," he said, softly.  "You havo courage, and I admire  courage, even in a scoundrel," replied the visitor.  "Don't waste your breath in abuso  but explain why you have como  here." said Sir Basil, dropping into  his chair and stroking his forehead  nervously with his hand.  "Surely that would bo wasto of  b,roath," tho othor returned. He took  a chair on thc opposito side of thc  table and sat down facing his host.  "Ask yourself what it .was you feared when you saw me watching you  through tho conservatoryi window!

"Be careful; it is very light at tho  trigger." . - ���������  "Don't toy ��������� with * destiny, Sturton," replied Webb, sternly, lowering the weapon.

Sho was a me.ro  babe, a child of three, when your  treachery robbed hor of hor father  and mother. I bolievo that she was  sent to tho workhouse, as tlie only  rcfugo open to her.

And  if your imagination of what it  moans to you terrifies you, remember  that I have suffered tho actual experience and am unrovengod! Write  now! . Como, Sturton, bestir yourself and write!"  He pressed the muzzle of tho revolver against tho back of the banker's head as ho ceased speaking, and  Sir Basil started to his feet and,  swinging round, grasped tho ex-  cashier's wrists with all his ebbing  strength.  "I can't! I won't! I swear by  Heaven 1 wonjt!" ho criod. "And  I will tell you why I won't! llon't  draw back���������don't touch that trigger,  for I mean you no harm. But "listen!

"Is she hire?" criod Webb, a  strango look of mingled huppinoss  and resentment crossing his face.  "Ym, sho is here!

It was a singlo bed and narrow,  standing out from thc wall; and half  hidden in tho soft, pink curtains,  which draped from tho projecting  head and fell upon tho pillow," tho  pink and downy quilt, and tho lace-  edged shoots, Webb beheld thc hoad  and.shoulders  of a girl.     '-  She was lying almost upon hcr  back, with ono arm thrown lightly  across hcr bosom, the other���������baro to  tho olbow���������drooping ovor tho edge  of the bed. Hcr dark hair streamed  ovcr tho pillow; long lashes lay  upon her cheeks, and her lips wero  parted in a faint suggestion of a  smile.  As Webb stood and gazed down at  her his thin, white face seemed to  pucker up, and his chest expanded  as a great sigh swelled in his hear.,  but he stifled it ero it took sound.  His eyes were prcternaturally bright.  .Neither of the =mcn-spoke.  Presently ,Webb dropped down on  his knees "and kissed lightly the  hand which, hung at tho side of the  bed.   "        * i \A  i   '     .  The girl moved regtlessly and  turned right on her side? drew away  hcr hand with impatient quickness,  and laid it on tho pillow half under  hcr" check.  Webb leant more forward, and his  white face dipped Into tho pink  quilt. For a few moments hc remained thus. Then hc rose and,  looking neither at thc girl nor Sir  Basil, moved towards thc door on  tip-toes.  With greater firmness in his steps  and straightcr carriage of his body  tlie banker followed him out of tho  room and back to the library.  Webb walked straight to the  writing-table and, laying down tho  revolver,  picked up his hat.  "Well?" said Sir Basil, in a low  voice, which quivered.  Webb walked round tho room slow  ly, biting his lips and glancing - ovor  the ornaments arranged * upon the  mantelshelf - and-, " the low bookcases  lining tho " room. Presently , he  stopped and took up one of half-a-  dozen photograph frames. * Unhesitatingly he opened the slide- at .tho  back and drew out the portrait . ol  the girl in -tho bedroom'-.upstairs,  and without a word, or casting a  look of inquiry at Sir Basil, . he  slipped -the photogiaph * into his  breast-pocket. Then ho turned "and  approached tho door. ,  Webb," said tho banker, who liad  been furtively watching him, wondering.

Born   on  December 27th,  1847, his fiist     marriage took    placo   in  1877,     and    in  1887 his wifo died, leaving him   with  an only child, who was seven   years  of ago.

Tho galleys   of   Louis XIV.     were  tho   last  oi   European    vessels  vthcio  Christians  were  employed  as  slaves.  The  Moorish  galleys   hud   Christians  as rowers up     almost   to  our    own  time,  says  the  United Scr\ico Magazine, and tho Maltese hold Turks and  Moors  to  that hard labor,  but    tho  Flench of tho Louis Quatoize   period  chained to the samo bench felons who  had  been repne*.ed  from  the gallows  ���������murderers  and   robbers���������and    thoso  whoso only fault was that they wished to wot ship God in their own way.  Tho oars of a first-class galley wero  about fifty in number and fiom forty-  fivo  to  fifty    feet   long,  each     being  pulled by     six     mon,    who   sat    on  benches  on  deck placed  a  little obliquely to  tha keel.   These oars     were  no\er taken inboard while tho galley  was at sea, but when not in use wero  cock billed  by  depressing tho   looms  and making them fast with a toggle.  Tho largo and heavy loom had   grips  bolted  to  it   so     that slaves     could  easily grasp  them.      Along  the middle  of the deck between thc   benches  ran fore and aft a  raised  bench   ,or  walk    called     tho   "coursier,"    upon  which an  oflicer  called the  "comito"  walked back  and  forth,  armed   with  a long whip,  with which ho enforced  silence and stimulated the slaves    to  tho utmost exertion at the oar.  NEVER LEFT BENCHES  While the galleys were in service  tho slaves were never allowed to  leave their benches, to which thoy  were chained, eating and sleeping in  tho exact placo where thoy toiled at  tho oar In very rainy or cold  weather an awning was tented over  the galley and stopped to the gunwale This was generally gaily  striped. Victor Hugo somcwhpr says  that tho galleys of Louis XIV. answered tho samo purpose as tho  steamers of our day; and; indeed, a  first-class galley,. going at steamer  speed over the smooth, bluo Mediterranean, gaily painted, with gilt  carving, streaming pendants,- trumpets sounding and armored soldiers  at their posts, must havo been a  beautiful sight to those who could  closo "thai- oyes**to the wretched,  emaciated creatures who toiled at  the  oars, .

Gold in the Flathead.
Tlie Fernie Free Press has the following story of Lhe Flathead Valley,
told tb the staff of that paper by an
old prospector named John Cochrane,
who had been brought inlo the Summit
House, on the Crow's Aest Pass, "more
dead than alive" on tho previous day.
The story was told aftor' the old_ limn
liad recovered considerably from the
effects of the privations he had undergone.
"Mr. Cochrane is a typical prospector of 05 years of age,'' says tlie
Free Press, "and lie told a Uirilling
tale, bordeiing on the incredible, of an
unknown gold mine he had discovered
in the heart of the Flathead, and of
terrible privations lie had undergone.
'I left Spokane four weeks ago,' said
Mr. Cochrane in purl, 'for tho Fiat-
head to prospect certain coal and oil
claims held by a Spokane syndicate.
"With nie was an expert who went in
to examine the seams. "We took
possession of a vacant shack near our
claims, 21 miles south of Crow's _Cest
and one mile down tho Flathead river
from the junction of the Crow's. Nest
trail with the river. After two or
three days my partner took sick,
caused, we both believed, from drinking spring water that was covered
with oil seepage. He left me to go
back to Spokaue, promising to send
ine more grub and assistance.* I did
"noEliear trom him ngnirT AT few days
after he left me I discovered near our
cabin an old blaze murk on a tree,
hut returning from their claim on
Thursday,,-iid finding ine no better,
they brought me oul on horseback.
"Tliere is a legend still current
among old-time prospectors," adds Ihe
Free Press, which may throw some
light upon the strange story told by
this old miner. The story goes that
years ago three minors with picks,
shovels and paus made their way into
the Flathead country. Some weeks
later one made .his nppeaiT.nce back
into civilization and told of a harrowing conflict with Indians. Tliey had
discoveied a rich gold claim and were
busy developing it when they were
attacked by Iudians. Kis two comrades
were slain and lie escaped. "Undaunted
hy his experience he secured the assistance of tliree others and Weill back
to follow up his discoveries. That was
the last ever heaid of them.
"John Cochrane lias gone to
Spokane. His two roscueis were rewarded for their kindness by a full
description of his liud and tbey left
Ciow's Nest Lhe next niorning to sift
it to the bottom."

Chas. Deutschman,s Recent
Discovery is a Veritable
That this marvellous province of
British Columbia contains many natural \\ onders bidden away where
mortal man hath not yet penetrated,
is amply evidenced by the recent discovery of a number of wonderful caves
at the head of a valley which has long
heen frequented as a hunting resort
and as an easy access Lo some of ihe
higher mountain peaks, lying near the
main line of tlie C.P.R.
It was lhe good fortune of the writer
Lo bo one of a party consisting of  -Mr.

believing that the trail  had  r.ot been
made without a purpose.     Aft'-r  four
luiles  laborious work   I came upon a
deserted placer gold mine on  a small
creek.      I  examined it  with inteiest.
The    diggings    had    evidently   been
deserted for many years,  probably  15
or 10 years I should say by the general
appearance.  A great deal of work had
been done by the unknown miners.    1
should say at least enough to keep six'
men busy for two seasons.     A   ti eneh
50 feet long, 10 feet deep and 3  feet
"wide at I lie bottom and 5 feet at the
top had been dug and  the earth  bad
evidently been washed for the  yellow
metal.    I saw no signs of lhe deparled
miners, no pans, no habitation and no
tools of any nature.     I came away
after spending an hour or two  there,
intending to go back at a later day. A
Jew days later my food supply ran out
and I took ill,  paitly   from  privation
and   partly  from   di inking   tbe   oily
water.     I was iu a vcry bud condition
when found by a couple of prospectoi s
who came to my cabin  last Tuesday.
���Jhe gave me some medicine and food,
ii-ceiitly made  a somewhat  extended
explur-.tioii ul'   tin., u undei fill   region.
A few mill"* wost of Glacier, where
the Canadian Pacillc baa located one
of their comfortable anil justly popular
hot<.'!_, wheie the roadbed runs along
llic. valley of the Iliecillewaet, the
party left tlie railroad and slruck up
tlie mountain side, first tlirough a bit
of foi est of grand cedars, I lien along a
clear uiouiildin side, the path always
tending upwards. Afler an hour's
easy climbing, the trail became more
and more difficult, following the rocky
..ides of a little mountain stream
which spring, fiorii I hcglaciers crowning the peaks on either side of the
valley. Two hours climbing brought
tl.e p.nLy out onto ;in expansion at an
elevation ol about 5,-IOO feet, guarded
by a narrow pass at its entrance, and
,' heie camp was made for the night.
Unfortunately early next morning
snow began falling heavily, which
added gieally to the discomfiture of
Lliose not accustomed to mountaineering. However an early slait was made
and some of the many natural phenomena of the dislrict were poinli-.d out

streams directly into (lie .side of t'he
mountain to eome out again, nobody
< as yet knows where. All hough Mr.
" Deutschman, the discoverer, expects
to find ils outlet somewhere in the
vicinity of Rogers Pass, some eight
iniles away.
The first cave visited has been called
the Marble cave from the beautiful
outcropping* in tlio walls and ceilings.
The format inn seems, to an unprofessional eye.-to be a blue limestone
.earned with white marble, nnd
Ihrough this the water lias pinned for
countless ages, wealing the rocks inlo
all sorts of grotesque shape.-., l.idders
hud been placed Lo aid the descent of
the harder places with hewn logs laid
over the deeper pot holes lo keep one
out of tbo water. AVilh Lhe aid of
1 interns Ihu descent is easily made
and the tortuous course followed.
Here it widens out into a large auditorium with vaulted roof, Ihen again
one has to squeeze through narrow
passages and over ledges of fallen rock
to otlior largo openings and over
caverns that make one shudder Lo look
Tlie second cave entered was much
smaller and a lillle more difficult to
enter, but very interesting, while Lhe
Lhiid was a very narrow and difficult
climb through a cave lho (Ioor of which
was solid ice, which bad melted but a
few inches during the whole summer.
The mammolh cave was reserved
until al'Lor dinner, and overy bit of
one's reserve force was rcquuod Lo
make it, the most difficult of all, for
having only beeri discovered, a few
weeks no preparation has been made
for gelling into iL.
The only approach ab piesent is down

rock for about 1:20 feel lo the floor of
the canyon with ahalf inch rop .round
one's body and an inch rope snubbed
LO lhe ioot of a liltlo balsam tree,
clinging Lo a rocky ledge at lhe Lop to
hang on by. Tbe indomitable guide
assured ns it was not only a vory easy
trick Lo go down but a perfectly safe
one, bul it did nol look it. However
il was a case of go by that roiite or
slay in camp, so each iu turn screwed
up courage and down we went without
ascr;itcb. Then the descent began,'
down Lhe rocky ledges alongside lho
roging torrent, lo .Lhe greal domed
opening in the side of tho mountain
towering thousands of feoL perpendicularly overhead. Soon we were in
darkness and lanterns had lo be lighted
and then on down, down, down, along
narrow rock ledges, ovor upturned,
locks, thiough narrow squeezes, flat
on hands and knees, and frequently-
lying prostrate and wriggling one's
body along as best one could. Then
a sharp turn round a jagged rock with
but an inch or two of toe-hold, over a
darksome yawning crevasse anil tbe
cave opens out into a vast gothic
roofed chamber wilh the water lushing pell mell along its course away
down below, goodness knows how far.
Or one comes ont on an overhanging
gallery, with roof high above and the
auditorium nway below in the blackness *�� here the acetylene lamp's light
could not penetrate. Again other
chambers open floored with great
jagged rocks which have tumbled from
above and remain unworn and piled as
they fell, leaving the roof so high
above that our lights failed to reach
it. Further and further our guide
lends the way and roofs and walls
become incrusted with the most beautiful formations, some white as Lhe
snow, others shading off, into creams

Tho cleaning  of ovory dairy utensil should bo  done thoroughly nnd promptly. Thoy  should bo washed In warm suds,  scalded with clear, hot wator, then  rinsed with cold water.

If there is much sterilizing to bo done about a dairy, a  small steam generator is tho bost.  After being cleaned and sterilized,  keep tho vessels in clean places and  in  pure nir.  A supply of good water is of tho  greatest importance to a dairy.  Spring- or woll water is the best.  The water should never be allowed  to becomo  stale.

There is perhaps no other businoss  whero so little attention is paid to  details as is tho caso in the liusiiioss  of farming. Our farmers should  know what branch of their business  pays thom best.' They should keop  records as to cost of production in  every line of their work. They generally have too little system about  their  operations . and  tho result     is  ing year. What i.s truo of poultry la  truo of many othor interests on 'tho  farm.

FEEDING  HOGS NEW C0KN\  Tho farmer who always has a  bunch of hogs to feed about thc  timo new corn is in the dough, is  exceedingly lucky, for my .experience  has proved tliul Ihey will do bolter  on thc now corn than on tho old.  After feeding a bunch of hogs for  owhile ou old corn tho now was given them and tho gain Wu.s. vory  noticeable. On an average thoy  gained ono-half pound apiece each  day moro than whon thoy wero fed  on tho old corn. Not "only did thoy  do better, but they' rolishod iheir  feed and oven chewed up tho green  stalks. While feeding on the now  corn, 'their bowels woro in a healthier condition, and it took less slops  to satisfy them. So whon a farmer  feeds now corn his reward is threefold. His hogs arc fattened quicker,  at less expense, and with less labor.  LAMBS IN TIJE CORNFIELD.  Lambs can bo profitably fed in the  cornfields in tho lat������ summor or early fall, aftor tho covn gots out " of  reach. Thcy will clean up tho  weeds, and do no har_\ to the corn  other than take oft tho lower leaves  and eat the broken-dow*.\ stalks. As  corn matures they will got the oars  within reach���������and bo benefited. With  a run of thc cornfield, in which rape  has been sowed, and tho opportunity  to get at a clover pasture, thoy will  grow and fatten at the samo time  and bo only a benefit to the cornfield.   -  Old sheep may have too good. an  appetito for corn jand break" down  the stalks'to get iC but lambs /will  r.ot^know 'enough to 'tip' .much ��������� of  that.'-"No matter how clean the "corn  whon*laid by, there will growTsnough  weeds'.to feed a few- sheep. \ ~.-"-, ' f  *.

In  thu excavation of Bismyui tho undent Sumerian or pro-Babylonian city  which flourished -1,500 yours ago,  writes Edgar J.

"  Measures    Adopted for Their    Relieve in Several Countries.   ,  Tho problem of tho .unemployed  working man is ono of tho most important questions of tho day in several European countries. Among  tho measures introduced by the government at tho present session of the  British Parliament was a bill for tho  relief of tho unemployed, but it.did  not become a law. The Belgian minister of labor has published a document setting forth the facts in his  country, and measures have bcon  adopted for the solution of the problem in Sweden, Hungary aud Russia.  Tho most significant of recent contributions to a knowlcdgo of the subject is tho report of a committee of  the French Chamber of Deputies on  tho conditions in Franco. It shows  bj numerous facts and figures that  tho introduction of machinery and  foreign competition havo mado it impossible for tho small farmer to earn  a livelihood by the cultivation of his  land.    Consequently he sells his   tw"o  often  loss of    time or efforts     spent   or threo acres    to the large proprie-  fn  Unes     of work    that under  these  tors, and drifts to. the.cily^ to swell  conditions are not prolitablc. Too  little time is spent by tho farmer in  contemplation, and in tho study of  now tu proceed in ordor to obtain  Tht! grenlcst- profit from their eti-j  deavors. If the farmers would go  to work, and keep accounts ninny  would be surprised at tho end of tho  year to learn that not all of thoir  work  on   lho farm  is  pro!! tablo.  Too many men keep cows that con-  sumo tho profits, earned by part of  lhe herd. Why? Simply becauso  they will nut ascertain what each  nnimal produces per year The poor  cows must be disposed of and better ones put in their places.        This  tho ranks of tho great army ��������� of  idlers.  Tho only remedy suggested in tho  report for this disastrous oxodus is  ,to-givo-tho-villager_and-farmer���������employment "which shall add enough to  his earnings to mako him contented;  that is, to orgnnizo and promote  houso  and village industries.  Attention is called to the methods  adopted in Russia for fostering the  oarning capacity of tho rural population.

"Thank you,*T)Ut I can't spare my  boy, he suits me," said tho photographer.  "Well, then, we must give Ames a  present, for he has suffered unjustly."-  "I don't want anything, sir. I'm  only  too glad to be cleared "  "Tho boys said you were saving  money foi some purpose; perhaps X  cculd  help you  to  that."  "Oh, nothing, sir, fpr me; but I  did want to get mother a dress "  "Ah, yes I won't keep you now.  Good-bye, Mr S You have done us  a valuable service by dealing up  this little affair."

He was  surprised to see Harry in tears, and  asked the reason Mrs. Ames explained.  "Look here," tho young man said,  "I'm fond of myfctencs; I'll take the  boy." And the photographer laughed "Cheer up," ho said to Harry.  "Come nnd work for me, and wc'lF  find out this riddle." He knew  Harry���������knew him for a good boy.  A few days later Mr. S. called at  the newspaper office "Papers gone  rogularlv since you dismissed young  Ames?" he asked  "Not a bit of it. Worse complaints  than over,"  was  the reply.  "Ah, a mystery," said Mr. S., and  went  away.  Next day hc got up very early and  walked 'up and down Mortimer street. (  Harry's successor was dropping the  morning paper on every doorstep.  Mr.- S. leaned against the portico of'  No. Land waited, keeping an eje^on  the whole street.

The girl told me so."        " -   ������  "Do they keep a cat?"  he asked.     -$,  Harry staled. "They keep a dog,"  he said, "a jolly one, it can do heaps  of tricks."  "It is too clover by half," said Mr.  S. "Come with me, my boy. You  and I will go and ask how No 8 is "  Harry wondered, but got his cap and  followed. To this question the girl  answered joyfully that her employer  was a great deal better���������out of danger. /"  "Can he read the papers yet?

Good���������This  Foremost Amongst,Canadian  Provinces   in    Resources   of  Many Varieties,  The following is an  extract from a  letter appearing in the Chicago Record  Herald, from   the pen of its famous  coi respondent, XV. E. Curtis :  Banff, Canada, Oct. 4.���������Taking one  consideration with another, British  Columbia is the richest of thc Canadi-  an���������proviricet*���������rich~in_ diversified-re^  sources. Its lumber mills rcalizo  about $10,000,000 a year, and ship a  laigepartof thoir product to foreign  countries. No section of the world  has finer forests. 'I'hey take out  "toothpicks." as they call them, a  hundied and twelve feet long by two  feet, square, without aknotof blemish.  But the timber is being cutoff in a  most extravagant and wasteful mnn-'  ner, without legnrd to tho future, and  thus thc richest lesouicc of tho province is being rapidly destroyed beyond recovciy. Occasionally sonic  wise and far-sighted man calls attention to (his waste, but nobody listens  to him.  The second  most valuable industry  is mining,  which  amounts to   about  thc same ns~ thc  timber, but is not so  certain.    Probably the gold and silver  output   during   the   past  five or six  yeais has averaged $10,000,000 and the  coal   S."),000,OUO.     Tlio gold and silver  mines    me    of    immense    richness  and the conl is inexhaustible.    The de  i posits on Vancouver  Tsland and along  the   lino of   the   Canadian Pacific are  probably tlic  most valuable, in quantity mid quality, in all America west  of   the   Mississippi   Biver.     Tliere is  anthracite as  well ns bituminous coal  In unlimited  quantities.     San   Francisco is at present the largest market,  hut  you   will   find Vancouver Island  coal in use everywhere on the Pacific  coast.  Thote is a good deal of agriculture  and horticulture in British Columbia,  although such a statement __ay_seeni  surprising.
