The latest news legaiding  Buller's operations is puzzling. It  looks row as it he never seriously  contemplated an attempt to relieve  Ladvbmith, hut is only demonstrating  to prevent the Boers diverting reinforcements to Magersfontein. Looking  lit the distance from Ladysmith to  Kimberley, a journey in which the  Boers would get little railway help for  the transpoi tn tion of their forces.  Robert, has a clear whole week's time  for striking the first blow, which will  undoubtedly put a new face on the  whole situation. This would account  for the present state of things in both  theatres of war, and the peculiarities  of tlie attacks of Monday and Tuesday  would become intelligible, for if they  had been intended as a serious movement, Buller would have been largely  reinforced, and would have pushed  the.attack with a gteat deal more  energy.

The report of the department of
railways and canals is behind hand,
like the rest of the blue books, but
the short statement of Intercolonial
-railway accounts go to show that Mr.
Blair has not made an astonishing
success of the year's business. In
general 1899 was a great year for the
railways, most of the lines showing
an increase of from 10 to 2S per cent
in gross earnings. Mr. Blair's road
gain*-'of less than live per cent when
allowance is made for tbe additional
mileage. The minister claims a revenue of $3,738,331, and an expenditure
oi 82,G7r>,CSG. showing a surplus of
|f_,C45. The actual outlay has been
over a million dollars larger than , is
represented by the above statement,
but this'$1,081,029 is called capital expenditure, and is not charged against
the year's business. Of this, however, ?G40,000 is for rolling stock.
Much o�� this plant is required to replace old cars' and engines, and
should go i:i as regular expenditure
for the year. There' is a charge of
$5,000 for iron bridges, which is also
in the' capital account. These are
bridges replacing others found too
���weak for the large engines. The
late government always charged such
improvements to thc current expenses of the year. Thero arc other
samples of this kind. but. the two
mentioned go to show that,the alleged surplus is the result of skilful
bookkeeping and not of skilful railway management. ''Tho pretended
surplus seems to cover a real deficit,
but even if it were genuine tho return? would still indicate that the
.government had lost money by the

** a. Gar den. In Honolulu.
Stray turtles measuring lour or fivu
feet in length, do not ottcn wander unmolested through the streets of a thickly
populated city. But not loug since a
well known family in Honolulu received
a visitor of this kind, says the Seattle
Post-Intelligencer. Nobody knows where
the great beast came from. He simply
appeared one day at the garden gate,
and, forcing an entrance, proceeded to
make himself at homo on the premises.
He was promptly expelled by tho astonished family, to wander ouce more on
the city streets, for they did not know
what elst to do with him. The turtlo
had different ideas, however. He had
found a comfortable homo and meant to
rtay ia It. He had very likely led a life
of hardship and intended to eud his days
in peace and security, so he returned,
but was again turned out upon the cruel
world. The turtle had a will of his own
and was determined to lire in that particular spot, so he crawled iu again thc
next time the gate was open. The iamb
1. gave up in despair and allowed the
uninvited guest to remain a few days before they turned him out again. Hut he
returned once more. This performance
was repeated a number of times. It they
shut the gate on him, he would rear up
on his hind legs and put his fore feet on
the top like a great dog.
It was necessary to accept the Inevitable. The people to whom he wished to
attach himself began to feci a certain
superstition and allowed him lo take possession of the garden which he had so
long coveted as his abode. There he
crawls about Iu thc daytime and sleeps
at night and is given his three good
mails a day of bran and water and
scraps from the table. lie is a perfectly
harmless old fellow, nnd the children
have great sport with him, two or three
at a time riding on his buck. It is only
dangerous to place a hand on thc side of
bis neck, for, as he contracts his neck
quickly within his shell, it is likely to
be drawn in and injured. But his funniest characteristic developed after he
had been fairly accepted into the family
circle. In return for the kindness lavished upon him he took upon himself
the functions of a watchdog. The poor
beast is not able to bark, but when a
stranger enters the gate ho gives forth
such loud and formidable hisses as to
frighten the most courageous until they
discover that his hiss is worse than his
It is estimated that this great turtle is
very old. "While not of a rare species, he
has grown to an unusual size. His neck
is beginning to shrivel and take upon itself the drawn look of extreme age. It
is thought by some that he is the famous
turtle that belonged to Kamchanicha I,
who was the greatest conqueror and king
of the Hawaiian Islands and lived over
100 years ago. The animal remained for
generations in thc custody of the royal
family and last belonged to the queen
dowager, Kapiolani, who died on .Tune
24. .Some time before the queen's death
the turtle disappeared. But, whether
I his queer old beast, with its almost human intelligence, has such a romantic
history or not, it is today one of the most
interesting sights of Honolulu, though
few visitors know of its existence.

Many suppose "Mother Goose" to be
an imaginary pei'Honagc, but she waa a
real woman, aud her maiden name was
Elizabeth Foster. She was born in 16-5,
married Isaac Goose in 1603, a few
years later became a member of the Old
South church of Boston and died in 1757
at the age of {*_ years. Her songs were
originally sung to her grandchildren.
They were first .published in 1716 by her
Bon-in-law, Thomns Fleet of Boston.
The "Mary" that "had a little lamb"
was Mary Elisabeth Sawyer, a Massachusetts girl. Her lamb was one of twins
forsaken by an unnatural mother. Mary
took it homo and cared for it herself.
They became fast friends, and when
Mary started to school her pet missed
her very much. So one morning it followed her. At school she tucked it under
her desk and covered it with her shawl,
but when she went out to her spelling
class the lamb trotted after her. The
children laughed wildly, and thc teacher
had thc lamb taken from the room. On
that morning a young student named
Kawlston was a visitor at the school.
The incident awakened his poetic genius,
and a few days later he handed Mary the
first three verses of tho poem. lie died
soon after, ignorant of thc immortality of
his verses.
Thc lamb lived many years and mot
death by the horns of an angry cow.
Mary's mother spun its wool into yarn,
from which she knit her daughter a pair
of stockings. Vcars passed, and the
stockings became yellow with age. Finally Mary rareled them out, cut thc yarn
into bits, fluffed it out, sewed it to cards
and, after writing on them verifying the
genuineness of the yarn, sold them to secure money to help save tho Old South
church of Boston.

Vcars ago an English lady paid a visit
to the island of Mauritius. She was introduced to a lady of great beauty and
commanding appearance, who ordered
every one about and whose features were
unmistakably Spanish. Who was this
lady? An infant picked up on the field
of Waterloo from behind a wagon after
the battle. Her pnrents were known to
God alone. She was found by an ensign,
Heiliger by name, perhaps an ollicer iu
the king's Gorman legion. Ho placed her
under the care of a soldier's wife, paying
for her support, and as she grew up, seeing how beautiful and talented she
promised to be, had her educated nnd
finally married her, ns Dick Swivellcr did
the marchioness. He held in his latter
days an appointment in the Mauritius,
nnd here follows the extraordinary pendant to this romantic tale:
The great-granddaughter of the Waterloo "Waif and Stray" (they mature and
marry very early in those tpopical climes)
was the wife of Baron do7 Lesseps, the
originator of the Suez and the unfortunate designer of the Panama canfll. At
ihe ago of 17 she fell in lore with the
baron, then above- 70, and proposed to
him, according lo tho custom of thc Mauritius, by n floral offering. The old baron
was so amazed that he declared that she
must intend the offering for his son. .who
was with him. "Xon, monsieur, e'est a
vous." The poor baron was in a state of
imbecility at the time of the Panama
scandals when his son and others were
seat to jail. It is to be hoped that the
great-granddaughter of the Waterloo baby was a loving and faithful nurse in his
infirmities of mind, body aud "estate.���

Unlike many opera singers,"Mrs. Jessie
Barllctt Davis has made it a practice to
attead churcl. services on Sunday whenever possible. Once she went to a local
revival meeting. The music was led by.
nn angular young woman, astonishingly
clad, and gifted with one of the most
stridently discordant voices Mrs. Davis
had ever heard. Her singing was so bad
that it fascinated her, but, nevertheless,
it seemed to delight others iu the congregation.
Immediately after the sermon nn old
man who shared her pew showed great
interest in her. and turned .with a satis-
tied smile and said:
"1 knowed you at once. Vou are ono
of them opery singers that gave that
show last night in the opery house? 1
thought -so. Well, that girl that led the
singin, she's my darter, and she's the
hest all round singer in tho state. And
say, it' you know any one that wants music lessons:, send 'em to her. Sho gives
vocal and pcanny lessons for a quarter,
apiece. You don't want to take no lessons, do j-ou?  She's great on trills."
Mrs. Davis thanked him, bur, fortunately for her career, she declined his
well intended otter.���Philadelphia Saturday Evening Post.

"Dear, dear"' she  murmured.     "I  wis

Then  she added  to .the conductor,  "I

practice of eating fcwects nt all times

FIELD BACHELORS  Give  a Most Successful   Smoker  the Mountain Town  in  On Monday night tho bachelors of  Field turned out en masse to the first  smoking concert ever held in Field,  and from its success it is safe to say  that many more will follow. The  first item on the programme was a  violin and organ duet by Messrs.  Cook and W. McPherson, which was  unanimously encored. Then > came  Mr. Len Solloway with a song entitled ;"Tho Three Wishes." His  lovely tenor voice ' was certainly  something to bo remembered. Mr.  J.. Lyon's song of ''Little Bunch of  Whiskers on His Chin" simply brought down the house. Mr. J.  Powers came next with the song  "Because 1 Loved Her," which was  sang in a feeling manner although a  trace of nervousness could be noticed.  Mr. D. Norri8 sang "The Miner's  Dream of Home" in _ very, tasteful  manner. After this M. P. Davis  recited "The Baseball Game" in  Swedish dialect which convulsed the  house with laughter, but the success  of thr evenisg ' certainly belongs to  Messrs.'- Gee, Clark, Corbett and McRae, who sang in a magnificent manner "Come List to Our Beautiful  Strain.'' The writer has listened to  many professional quartette troupes,  but has never heard anything rendered in a more tuneful manner. Then  came Mr. F. Blumbeybetter, known as  Kruger, who sang a coster song in a  very lifelike manner. .��������� After that  came Mr. S. Timmins with a whist-,  ling solo, accompanied by W. Cox on  the piano, entitled ".The Mocking  Bird." This was rendered in a very  skilful manner and showed careful  cultivation. Mr. W. Adamson then  sang "The' Boat That Brought Me  Over," which proved that the boat  brought over a clever comedian. Mr.  A.- McDonald, , with his Coon song,*  entitled "All Coons Look Alike to  Mo" received hearty ���������pp1auso, and  Messrs. F. Gibson and W. Bell sang  a duet entitled "Sucking Cider  Through a Straw" in a manner that  would make one . believe they had  been doing it in reality. ��������� The concert then came to a close by everybody present singing the National  Anthem. Mr. F. Gibson made a very  able chairman and no small credit  belongs to him for the success of the  first concert of this kind ever hold  in Field.

THE RED RAT'S DAUGHTER  By   Guy   Boothby,   author   of   "Dr.  Nikola's  Experiment," .(published  by,  The  Copp.  Clark  Co.,   Limited.  Toronto.      Price, paper, 75 cents;   cloth,  $1.25).  Mr Boothby is by no means unknown in tho world of fiction, and  the esteem in which he Is held by his  fellow authors was well voiced by  Mr Rudyard Kipling .recently, when  he remarked: "Mr. Guy. Boothby  has come to groat honors nojy. His  name is large upon hoardings, his  books sell like hot cakes, and he  keeps a level head through it all.  I have met him several times In England, and he added to my already  large respect for him.''  "The Red Rat's Daughter" is probably the author's best piece of work.  It is a most exciting tale of tho endeavors of a young Englishman ot  means to rescue his Polish fiance's  father from political .imprisonment  on the Siberian Island of Saghallcn.  The love story of these two young  people is a most romanic one, and  the mystery running through thc  whole book is well contrived, and  concludes with an unusually cloverly  managed surprise.
