Carmicbael, on  the Big Bend district has just been  issued from the provincial bureau of  mines, as follow s;  Big Bend district is that portion of  British Columbia north of the Cana-  dianPacific railway and enclosed by  the Big Bend of the Columbia river,  having an area of approximately 2,300  square miles. Crossing theC. P. R. at  Beaver Mouth, the Columbia flows in  a northwesterly direction- for 60 miles,  when it makes a sharp turn to the  left and flows south, again crossing  the raiiway at Revelstoke, 76 miles  soutb of the Bend. With the exception of a few rapids, the liver is navigable for boats or canoes for the ehtiie  distance, and the only bar to steamer  navigation.is at La Porte, 40 miles  above Bevelstoke, the return journey  being made in one day.  HISTORICAL.  In the spring of 1S65, four boatloads  of prospectois left MarcUs, in Washington territoiy, to prospect the Columbia'river. 'They were headed by  five men who, in some form or other,  have ' left their mark upon the country^ a creek, a*, basin, or' a mountain  peak being named after them. These  men were Wni .'Downie, Hy.' Carnes,  Nelson-De Mars, Louis Lee and Steve  Liberty..  ,>���������   _     ,'../.-' ���������*  < Ascending "the Columbia through  the,Arrow lakes, prospecting as they,  went, they first struck"gold on Carnes  creek, 20 miles above the present town  of Kevelstoke. _j;W--shing here proved  so successful that the party decided to  send * some 'of their number ..back to  Marcus.tfor ignore, supplies," while^the<  remainder^ whiptsawed^jlumber^and  ^put in sluice^boxes.,^While the(returu������  party" was".at "Marcus'^sohie. of the  oth"ers;jP-08pected the creeks'further  up the 'Columbia, striking gold on a  number of>lhemt the. best, however,'"  being McCullough and French creeks.  The'news of the discovery of gold in  this region traveled down to Marcus  and thiough the West, with tlie zes'ult  that in the following year"(1866) there  was a rush to this section, the popula-'  tion becoming - between 8,000. and  10,000 people/- A steamer was built at  Marcus,' culled "The 49." and during  tha, one season'(1866) made 37 trips  from Marcus-to-La Porte, where .a  rapid blocks! fui ther.continuous navigation:* . In the Baroe year the government'^ appointed the late Hon. Peter  O'Reilly., as gold' commissioner './at  French creek.   * -. j * - -    *     '   -  Quite recently a pair of old English  handcuffs and part of a billiard table  were unearthed; reminders of these  early days. It has - been estimated  that some $3,000,000 in gold were  taken out in 1805 0, a $375 nugget  being found on French creeKT7 : "  Ttavel-wos not entirely confined to  Hospital Ball Report.  The ladies hospital aid society held  a meeting Tuesday to wind up affairs  connected with the annual ball for  1005. The secretary's report showed  thab the total receipts from all sources  amounted to 93S1.2o aud the expellees  to $04.52, lpaving the handsome surplus of $318.73 which sum added to the  amount the society already havo on  hand amounts to $700.

This  placer excitement died down, many of  the miners"- going to Perry creek in  East Kootenay, others pushing north  ward until tbey struck the Peace und  Finlay rivers, bringing the placer  camp of Omineca into existence.  From this time the Big Bend disti ict took a' long rest, compaiatively  little 'mining being done, and that  confined to places and hydraulic  claims, no lode mining being pi osecu-  ted. In-1808 prospecting for quartz  was -commenced in this region, but,  unfoatunately, had barely begun before the wave of mining development  over "the whole* of the^'.Northwest  showed signs of slacking; the prospector, not seeing a buyer for his claims,  turned 'his* attention" elsewhere, aud  Big Bend district continued to slumber  a little longer.*'.

When Damo Fortuno is turning a  lottery-wheel it must bo acknowledged, to hor credit, that -sho usually distributes hcr favors in .quarters whoro thoy are most needed and  appreciated. Sho was in this benevolent mood when, a vcry short timo  ago, she awarded a 5200,000 prize  to; Af mo. 11 ofcr, tho canteen-maid to  tlio _SHh French 'Dragoons; and a  second prizo of $-10,000 to M.  Cousin, a clerk who had novor  drawn more than 5300 a year in his  life.  Only a fow months ago, wo; recall,  Mario Birct, a maidservant in Paris,  asked her employer to buy hor a  ticket in tho lottery organized, by  thu Northern I.caguo against Tuberculosis; and one lino morning when  sho was cleaning tho doorstep sh'o  learnt that lho first prizo'had fallen to hor, and that sho was a  quarter of a million fraucs richer for  hor lucky purchase.  In  the drawing of tho great State  lottery ut Madrid last Christinas tho  chief prizo  of 51,000,000  wus     won  by a    struggling    tradesman of  Co-  ruixna,' to  whom ''a.'hundredth,     part,  of  tho  sum   would   havo   represented  a huge  fortuno;  and  540,000     went  in  smaller prices  to  a few peasants  in   Saceclon,   a  poverty-stricken   village in tho provincevof Guadalajara.  Tho  winner .of tho  chief  prize     of  $50,000   in  tho  last  lottery  authorized  by  tho  French  Government    on  behalf of tho Hospital for Consumptive  Children  was a Parisian    workman  called, Dutlicll.     When   tho  list  of winners was taken  into  Dutheil's  workshop and ho discovered that tho  first prizo was his, ho was,  says Lc  Francais,   "literally  demented     with  joy,   and   it    was  feared    that     his  brain had givon way."    Duthcil had  bought  his  ticket at  a.cigar     shop  six months earlier for -1 fr., and had  almost    forgotten    tho circumstance  when  thc  intoxicating news    of   his  good fortuno came to him.  It was only last year that M.  Caimis, clerk to a Rhoims commercial iirm, won a small prize.'of $_00  in a lottery, and with tho _ money  bought a Paris City bond and .a  Credit Fonder debenture'. In" tho  periodical-drawing his Paris bond  brought * him 520,000; and shortly  after his Creelit Foncier cupon"yiold-  od 540,000���������tho 560,000 being*', the  return foiv an original .investment" of  a single franc, ln a-recent Spanish  National: Lottery , drawing, a 54-0,-  OOw prize foil to.'a syndicate of ten'  men, among whom were a cobbler, a  ccstormbngor, d -waiter, a pork-  sailer, and. an army sorgoant; while  thc principal prize of ,������175,000 went  to tho crow of the' Italian, warship  Lopanto. " '.". ���������'  Quito recently, too, a ship's fireman on_tho Wilson liner Murillo received the gratifying news that ho  had drawn, the winning number in" a  great Austrian* lottery, nnd that  tho' snug ' littlo fortuno of $40,000  was'wailing his claim. Tho ���������lucky  fireman was a German named Josoph-  Torsig, and ho had purchased ' t.ho  ticket when his ship called at Fiumo.  Eighteen months earlier a poor railway signalman in Prague won a lot-  tor;/ prize of exactly tho same value,  $40,000; and about the. same time  Tonba Pietormnnn, a very poor woman, who hold ticket No. 47 in* the  Bank of thc Nobility .Lottery in St.  Petersburg, almost lost her reason  when she learnt that she had won  tho first prize of ������100,000.  Luck, however, came too late to a  Moravian callod Hertz; for when  nows reach-rd him that ho had-won  a S10.000 prize in tho Stato Lottery  ho was commencing a life sentence of  penal servitude for murder; and  Charles Rotlor, a retail tobacconist  of Chicago, .when he heard "that a  ticket which he had just givon away  to a friend had won a prizo of 515,-  000,* died of a broken heart. Year  after year a Vienna shopman pur-  chaHcd_a���������tickct~for ~tho���������State "LoU  tcry bearing a number which ho  hatl dreamed on three, consccutivo  nights, antl for ton year's hi.s ticket  "drew a. blank." On December ,1st,  1902, tho man died,- and a fow days  later thu ticket ho had purchased  won n prize of 524,000.  'I'o glvp but ono more illustration  of ...this; aspect, of lottery fortuno. A  short timo ago a Vienna paper had  an advertisement offering "52,800  and no quostions asked" foi\ tho  restoration; of a. .."Turkish'-lottery  bond to its rightful owner. ��������� .TTio  number of tho bond in question was  drawn for tho chief prizo. of $125,-  000 somo yoars ago. Tho owner  of it, howevor���������a poor man named  Jlayci���������did not learn of his good  fortune until, by a hard stroke of  luck, lie recently lost the bbnd. Being out of work and -in great want,  about a month ago ho decided to  soil tho bond,' and started off to-the  bank for that purpose. On his arrival at tho bank the bond was missing. Such are somo of the tragedies and ironies of lottery.luck.  *.  WALK      THE     ST32EETF      AND  PASS AS STJiJoSGTS.

REPORT ON BIG  BEND DISTRICT  (Continued from Page 1.)  FORMATION.  The entire region is rugged, the  mountains rising rapidly from the Columbia river. The lower hills and  benches ave covered with a heavy  growth of timber, consisting of Douglas fir, cedar and white pine; timber  line being reached at an altitude of  6,000 feet above the river, or 7,500 feet  above sea level.  On the divides between the creeks  at an elevation of 7,500 feet, there is a  considerable area of what might be  called a rolling plateau or park I and,  from which peaks iise from 1,000 to  2,000 feet still higher. In summer  these grassy slopes furnish excellent  food for pack animals; the rocky portions are easily seen, and prospecting  does not present the difficulties encountered in the thick underbrush of  the lower altitudes. An easy grade to  these plateau regions is obtained by  following up the numerous creeks  flowing into the Columbia river. For  instance, tbe divide above Standard  basin is reached by following up Five  . Mile creek on a gradual grade of about  600 feat to tbe mile. Some of the  ���������creeks, however, are-much steeper.   From persocal observation and information obtained, tbe country rock  of the Big Bend district seems to be  schist, a typical sample of which was  Bent to Dr. Dresser, who gives the  following report:  COUNTRY ROCK  "Hand Specimen.���������A greenish grey  rock, apparently consisting of dark,  Echistose serpentine, and containing  small layers of calcite along the cleavage lines. The latter mineral is so  pure as to effervesce readily with cold  hydrochloric acid.  "Thin Microscopic Section.���������The  rock is found to be composed of serpentine, quartz, feldspar, und remnants, or alteration products, of some  ferro-magne.ian mineral. The feldspar is by far the most abundant  mineral, and, with the calcite and  quartz, makes up the essential pait of  the rock.  "The alteration of the original rock  is so complete that few, if any, parts  of the primary minerals remain. It is  an impure serpentine, evidently derived by alteration from a rock whose  original composition was between that  of a gabbro or diabase, and a perido-  tite."  The country rock, where seen, did  not show much local contortion, and  tbe open ground on the divides makes  it easy to see the strata and to pros  pect. So far as examined, mineralization seems to have taken place along  zones of movement in the schist and  parallel with the strike. No veins  were observed crossing the formation.  The vein filling differs in different  properties and in different parts of  the same vein. In places it is quartz  showing a remarkable banded structure; in others, copper and iron pyrites or zinc blend have been deposited  in the original schist, and are minutely intei'banded.  Prospecting in the region above timber line is easy compared with the  densely-wooded portions of the province. Communication will undoubtedly be better in the future, so this  section appears to offer a favourable  field for the prospector, and after him  the mining engineer.  J.  AND L.   GROUP.  The J. and L. group  is situated on  Goat Mountain, -at   the   head of   tbe  east fork of Carnes creek.   The group  consists of five claims���������the Eli and J.  and L., owned by L. T. Georire and J.  P. Kelly; the Badger,  owned by J. P.  Kelly; and the Annie M.,' owned by E.  McBean an d J. P. Kelly.     The foot of  Goat  mountain is reached by a trail  from Carnes creek to the forks; thence  following up the east fork to the mine  cabin   at  the   base of   the mountain,  where   it is   1,050 feet above the Columbia  river, the   length of   the  trail  being, nine   miles.     The exposures of  country  rock   on   the   trail   were all  schist,   interbedded   here   and  there  with limestone.      Goat Mountain consists   entirely   of   schist, and   cutting  diagonally across a shoulder is a mineralized zone in  the schist, having the  same strike as  the schist, and dipping  with it into the hill at an an angle of  about 30 degrees.  The southern slope of Goat mountain is very steep, rising at an angle  of 40 degress.-- The vein or mineralized  zone vvas first struck in the creek at  the base of the mountain, but little  work vvas done at this point. The  highest workings are 1,21 X) feet above  the mine cabin, and an examination  vvas commenced at that point, gradually descending and at the same time  going around the mountain to the  east.  At 1,200 feel altitude a tunnel wits  driven in through a schist formation a  little below the outcrop of the vein,  and vv hen 00 feet of it cuts the vein  diagonally where it is about 8 feet  wide, dipping with the schist into lhe  hill at an angle of 30 degrees, and having a strike of N. 65 W.  From the end of the crosscut adrift  was run to the right 60 feet on the  vein, which is soft and entirely decomposed, no doubt largely due to the  decomposition of arsenical iron in vein  matter so close to the surface, this  mineral being noted at other points in  the deposit. The hanging wall is  schist and the footwall lime stone, and  both are well marked with several  inches of red gouge on each.  Some 50 feet below this upper tunnel and ahout 750 feet horizontally  round the hill is an open cut, which  shows the ore body to have the same  characteristics as noted above, and to  be about 3 feet wide. At 275 feet below the upper tunnel, and still further  round the hill, nn incline was sunk on  vein to a depth of 50 feet. On the  surface the characteristics were much  the same as noted above, the ore body  being 4 feet wide, vvith schist hanging  wall and lime foot wall, with 10 inch es  of red gouge oirtiie latter.  On descending the incline and a few  feet from the surface the vein loses  its decomposed nature, and becomes  very distinctly banded in character,  quartz and schist boing intei'banded  with arsenical pyrites, tho latter being  in bauds of one to tvvo inches wide.  Assays from tho incline gave the following results: Gold, .0 oz.; silver,  ���������i.t oz.; coppor, none.  Still further rouud the mountain  aiid 000 feet under a cosscut through  the schist was mndo below an outcrop  of the vein, and at 00 feet in the ore  body was crosscut diagonally, having  a slightly steeper dip than noted above  being here 45 degrees. A di if t on the  vein was then run to the right, a distance of 117 feet, a bend here causing  the tunnel to slightly change its direction.  The ore body here is from 1 to 4 feet  wide, zinc blend showing, however,  more largely, in one place being 2 feet  9 inches wide. Assays from the long  tunnel gave gold, .28 oz.; silver, 4.2oz.;  copper, trace; lead, noue; zinc, 30.37  per cent.  A small open cut, midway between  this tunnel and the incline above,  clearly shows the ore body some 2 feet  0 inches wide, wilh a dip of 49 degrees,  the mineralization being zinc blend,  arsenical iron, and galena. The values  of a sample taken from this open cut  gave as follows: Gold .62 oz.; silver,  4 oz; copper, trace; zinc, 5.25 per cent.  The work done on this property  shows that there is a vein or impregnated zone in the schist country rock  and along a contact, with limestone  extending from high up the mountain  to the creek below, varying in width  and mineralization, but showing great  permanence. In places - the ore is  solid carrying good values; in others  concentration would be required. Tbe  work which has been already done  amply justifies further development."  Assays obtained by the owners from  different parts   of  the  vein give, th  following  results:  ,1    .           *_^                       1   '         -Iqj  Gold  Silver  Copper '-'Lead  .33  .63  .11  .24  1C.4  2.0  33.8  20.52  .,.(1          -*27.2  .0               3.5  3.8     -  1.0  -      ' STANDARD   GROUP.    '  The standard group embraces eleven  claims, and is owned by the Prince  Mining and Development Co., of Revelstoke, B.C. The property is situated  on a small divide, between two forks  at the headwaters of one of the south-  e ist branches of Downie creek, flowing  into the Columbia river. The claims  are reached from the Columbia river  by a trail 12 miles long, following up  Five-Mile creek, and crossing over the  divide into Downie creek. The altitude of the divide is 6.000 feet above  the Columbia, about 7,500 feet above  sea level, and is just above timber line.  The summit is practically clear of timlier, although a few hundred feet  lower there is a large extent of fine  park-like country, with clumps of trees  and the best of feed for cattle and  horses during the summer months.  The country rock over this whole  neighborhood is a well-marked schist,  interbanded with limestone and outcrops of quartz, often carrying minerals, are numerous. __c_riy on the  crest of the divide a mineralized zone  in the schist occurs, which has been  traced for over a mile along the ridge  by outcrops and open cuts in the directions of the approximate strike of  the schist country rock.  To prove the value of this deposit, a  series of tunnels was run in to the hillside, crosscutting the formation, at  the point where the mineralization  showed strongest. These tunnels are  three in number, and have been run  as follows:  The lowest tunnel crosscuts the formation and was run 315 feet. At 275  feet a mineralized zone wtis struck and  was estimated to be about 45 feet  thick. Drifts were run on this zone  N. 40 degrees W. and S. 40 degrees E.,  a total distance of 140 feet. This zone  was found to have a dip of 21 degrees  N. E. and a strike of S. 40 degrees E.,  in conformity with the schist country  rock on the hillside.  A second tunnel, run at an elevation  of 184 feet above the lower tunnel,  struck the zone' referred to at 140 feet,  when drifts   were  run, parallel with'  those below, a  feet.  At a further elevation of 120 feet  above this a third tunnel vvas driven,  catting this zone nt 150 feet, when  drifts of 70 feet were run north and  south. The last two levels havo been  connected by an upraise driven on the  zone, drifts 70 feet long heing run from  the upraise midway between the two  levels.  Besides this main work, there are  other tunnels and open cuts on other  portions of the property. The work  done goes to prove that thero uxisls in  the very dark talcose schist n mineralized zone, having a width of about 40  foet in tho tunnels and traceable for it  vory considerable distance. A close  examination of tho vein mat tor would  indicate that there hits been consider-  able movement, the black schi.t being  slicken-sided to a marked degree, bul  it would appear that the inineriil-  bcnijng solution had not penetrated  the zono until after this movement  had ceased, as the mineral is found to  be between the foliation of lhe schist  and not in any solid masses of the  schist itself. Payable mineralization  does not exist across the entire zone,  as in places the black schist occurs  without any mineralization whatever,  but there are cavities in the schist  which have been entirely filled vvith  ore bearing solutions, and represent  solid lenses of ore 4 to 8 feet thick.  The mineralization consists largely  of arsenical iron and copper pyiites,  with a little bornite. Assays of selected samples gave: Gold, .32 oz.; silver  1.4 oz.; and copper 15 per cent. While  quartz vvas noted as a portion of the  vein filling, it is not nearly so prominent as might be expected from the  number of quartz outcrops seen at  different points on the suif.ice.'  DifiQculties of transportation at present militate against the claims, but.  there is good ground for hoping that  further work will prove up a property  which, by offering a large tonnage of  ore, will overcome this difficulty.  'An effort was made to find the Keystone group of claims, on which a considerable' amount, of work -has been  done, but this property was missed,  owing to the entire obliteration of the  trail on the Keystone divide.        -    *  -  .

There nre  some who are inclined to grumble  because in the literature, the lectures  and other means employed by the  Dominion Government to attract settlers to Canada, the advantiigos that  Manitoba and the Northwest olfer to  newcomers seem to exclude any reference to British Columbia. "Wo.nre inclined to think that thero is sonic  ground for this criticism, and we trust  that the Federal Government will tlo  something to remedy lhe injury Hint  the failure to draw attention-to British  Columbia may have caused this  Province.  But wlien all is s.iid and done, the  best advertisement that this Piovince  can obtain  is not by  the methods or  tho agents th.it either the Federal or  Piovincial authaiitics may employ foi  the purpose.' With British Coluuihia,  more than with any other part of the  Dominion, the question of   immigia-  tion  should   be   regarded  fiom   the  standpoint of quality rather  than of  quantity.     While scores of thousands  can be sent without risk to the bioad  and fertile prairies of the North-West,  those best qualified, by expeiienceand  knowledge, to give an opinion, would  hesitate to  recommend unlimited immigration   into   this" Province.    Not  that to the right class of  immigrants  there are not as good���������or even better  ���������opportunities open on the west slope  - of the Rockies  as on  the east of   tlie  continental backbone-    But they aie  of adiffeient kind, and requiic to be  taken up   by  those  who possess  the  necessary  qualifications.   . An   indis-  ciiminate  influx   of    certain ^ classes  ���������would result unfavorably to the immigrants and   do harm to tho Province.

As tho decisive day*' approached,  Jacquelina certainly nctod liko ono  distraught���������now in wild defiance, now  in paleness and le.iru, antl anon in  fitful mirth, or taunting threats. Sho  rupidly lost flesh and color, and iu  hysterical laughter accounted for it  by saying ihat sho believed in her  soul Grim wus a spiritual vampire,  who preyed upon her life! She  avoided him as much as sho could.  And if sometimes, when- she wns  about to escape from him, he would  seizo her wrist and detain lier, she  would suddenly lose her breath and  turn so palo that inj tho fear of lier  fainting, ho would release hcr. So  he got no opportunity to projs. his  claims.  One morning, howover���������it was  about, a week beforo Christmas���������sho  voluntarily sought his presence She  entered tho parlor where ho sat  alone. Excitement had flushed her  cheeks with a ' vivid crimson and  lighted her eyes with sparkling fire���������  sho did not know that hor beauty  was onha_eed*t a thousand fold���������she  *s_icl not know that never in her lifo  had her presence kindled such a flamo  in. tho heart of hcr lover as it did at  that moment. And if ho restrained himself Irom goin)? to meet he:*, it  was tho dread, lost she should fade  nway from him as he had seen her  do so often. Hut sho advanced and  stood before him.  "Dr. Grimshaw!" shc said, "I have  come to make a last appeal to you!  I have como to beg, to supplicate  you, for my sake, for honor, for  truth and for mercy's sake, yes!, for  heaven's sake, to withdraw your pretensions to my poor hand. For, sir,  I do not and cannot like you! I  do not say but that you are for too  good and wise, and every way too  worthy for such a girl as; I am���������and  that you do mo tlio very greatest  honor by your preference, but still  no ono can account for tastes���������and,  , -sir, I cannot like you���������pray, pardon  ���������������<o! indeed, I cannot help it."  Although hor words were so humble, her color was still heightened,  and her eyes had- a threatening, defiant sparklo in' them, so contradictory, so piquant and fascinating in  contrast with tho little, "fragile,  graceful, helpless form, that his'head  was almost turnod. It was with difficulty he could keep from snatching,  tho fluttering, half-defiant, half-  " frightened, bird-liko creaturo to his  bosom. Rut he contended himself  .with saying:  "Hy fairyl wc are commanded to  love thoso that hate us; and should  you hato me more than ever. I  should  only continue to love you!"  "Love mo at a distance, then! and  tho gre .toil tlio distance, tho more  grateful I shall  ho!"  He could no longer quito restrain  himself. Ho seized her hand, and  drew her to.vards him, exr-laiming in  an   eager,   breathless,   half-whisper:  "Sol closer and closcH shall my  lovo draw us, beautiful ono! until it  compasses" your hate and unites us  forever!' '���������'  With a half-suppressed cry sho  wrung her hand from his grasp and  answered,  wildly:  "I sought your presence to entreat  you���������and to warn you! I havo supplicates you, and you have turned a  deaf car to my prayer! Kow I warn  you! and disregard my warning, if  you dare! despise" it at your peril!  I am going out of my wits, I think!  I warn you that _ may consent to  become your wife! I have no persevering -.resistance in my nature. 1  cannot hold out forover against those  I love. But I warn you, that if ever  I consent, it will bo under tho undue  iuflueucd of others!"  "Put your consent upon any  ground you please, you delightful,  you  enchanting little  ctcaturo..

"Vampire!" she exclaimed, struggling to freo herself for a moment;  and then as his lips sought hers^lho  color faded from her faco and tho  light died in her eyes, and he hastily  released her and sot her in a chair  lest sho should swoon in his hatred  arms.  "Now, how am I expected to livo  with such a wife aa this girl would  mako mo? If it wero not for the os-  tato I should bo tempted to give hcr  up, and travel to forget hor!

And then, as sho left tho room and  closed tho door after hor, hcr quick  oar caught tho sound of tho commodore's voico,  chuckling*.  "So! I'vo trapped you! Ton minutes more, and it would have boon  impossible."  Full of wonder as to .what his  words might mean, doubting also  whether slio had heard thom aright,  Jacquelina was hastening on toward  her mother's room..when sho met her  Aunt Henrietta hurrying toward her,  and speaking impetuously.  '*Oh, my little Lapwing! whoro  havo you boon? I have been looking  for you all o\er tho house! Good  nows, dear Lapwing! Good newsl  Deliveranco ,s at hand for you! Who  do you. think has come?"  "Who!    Who?"      questioned      Sans  Souci, eagerly.  ' "Cloudy!"  "Lost! lost!" cried tho wretched  girl, and with a wild shriek that rang  through all tho house, sho threw up  hor arms and fell forward to tho  ground.  Tho marriago was appointed to  take placo Christmas Day. Jacquelina  suffered her mother to dress hor in  bridal array. Dr. Grimshaw was  waiting  for ber  in the hall.  As soon as sho reached tho foot of  the stairs, ho took her hand; and,  pressing it,- whispered:  "Swoet girl, forgive mo this persistence!" .   *,  "May God* never forgive.mo if I  'do!" sho fiercely exclaimed, transfixing him with a flashing glance.  Nover lover uttered a deeper sigh  than that which Dr. Grimshaw gave  forth as he led ..his unwilling brido  to tho carriage. The groomsman followed with tho bridesmaid. Tho commodoro and -Mary L'Oiseau accompanied tho-party in a. gig. Henrietta, true 10 hor word, refused to . bo  present at the marriage.  .

A couple of hours spent in 'a  blacksmith's shop about .the timo it  freezes up in winter can often bo  put to vory good uso by tho owner  of horses. The writer recently mado  such a visit just as a drafter weighing in moderate farm flesh* 1,720  pounds was taken to bo shod. A  gelding weighing perhaps 1,100  pounds was just ahead of him in  arriving and as a consequence was  entitled to prior attention. Tho  owner of tho little gel-ding asked  thc smith to .shoe and left it to "go  down town" for something or othor.  Thc smith's assistant took olT tho  shoos, and pared tho feet till thcy  woro deeply concave, cut down tho  frogs, cut through tho bars nnd  mado some crudilo remarks about  "opening heels" and so forth. By  and by tho shoos were made somewhat smaller than tho feet, hammered on, tho nails clinched and tho  hoofs rasped oil to meet the shoo.  When tho drafter's turn camo no  such pranks were played. Tho shoos  wero taken off, a rag or two snipped  off the big healthy frogs, tho soles  woro left entirely alono and tho  walls wore rasped level and that  was all' that was done to his feet.  Tho shoes wore beaten up as required and replaced, exactly fitting  tho riin of tho wall and resting on  tho heel just whoro. nature intended  thoy should rest. When tho shoos  wore again nailed on thoro was no  horn to -bo rasped off .outside them  and as soon as the nails were clinched in good shape tho-job was dono,  savo that tho smith wished to run  the rasp around tho hoof just abovo  the''show  .FOR THE SAKE OF NEATNESS.  Both horses wero led out of tho shop  at ,tho' samo timo, tho little chap  with his concaved foot stepping;  gingerly-and tho big one with his  strong solos tramping off as if it  made no difference to him whether  he trod on' stono or soft road.  Thoro is nothing now about this  matter of slashing thc equine foot  all to pieces, but it rocuM with such  regularity each winter' tliat it is  worth speaking about. Every ono  knows that tho nearer the outsido  the harder tho horn of the horse's  foot.     All  fall  when  the ground     is  is needed in tho case of a healthy  foot is to rasp off tho wall to its  proper dimensions and let the foot  go at that, leaving tho solo ns thick  as may bo antl tho frog as big and  strong and clastic as Naturo makes  it. To ruthlessly slash away the  outsido horny covering and let tho  soft semi-fatty tissuo of tho irog  como in contact with tho ground is  barbarous and must handicap tho  horso in travelling until the frog  shall have again grown a protecting  covering for thc moro tender parts  of tho groat cushion which has been  placod in lho contro of his foot to  tako 'up tho jar and keep his legs  sound. It is positively wonderful  why farmers will insist in thus hav-  ���������|ing their horses' "feet* maltreated. It  is not rigiit, of courso, to lot tho  toes of tho feet grow too long, but  it is better to err on this sido than  to havo them filed oft to fit a shoo  that is too small. Most horses  work bettor with plenty of foot than  wilh* thoir   toes   too   short. Com  paratively Ihero is such a smnll  bearing surfaco in the foot to carry  the weight of tho horse that tho loss  cutting there is dono tho bettor. A  good big foot is a good thing on  any horso. A good thick solo and  big healthy frog nro indispensable.  Skilled smiths will not essay to  to slash* tho foot to pieces if they  know the owner wants tho horso  properly fhod. On tho otiier hand  if they know tho owner likes to soo  tho solo pared away, the frog half  amputated and thc bars split in  twain, ho will moot the wishes expressed and so earn his monoy. It  would ptiy all farmers without exception to learn about tho structure  of tho horse's foot in order that tho  skill of the smith may bo availed of  for benefit and not for damage.

"Naco, do you tako your brido  homo in tho gig, ns you will want  her company to yourself, and wo will  go in the carriage," said tho commodoro, good-naturedly. In fact  the old man had. not been in such a  fine humor for many aday.  Dr. Grimshaw, "nothing loth," led  his fair bride to the gig, handed her  in;  and  took  tho place  besido her.  "Now, then, fairest and'dearest,  you are at last." indeed," my own!"  ho said, seeking her eyes.  "-TiaSiTTIoaveffT-!"am" not!*-I-novcr  forswore myself. I never opened my  lips, or formed a vow in my head.  I never promised you anything," said  Jacquelina, turning awny; and the  rest of tho journey was mado in  silence.  (.To be Continued.)

A considerable industry has recently been developed m Sweden on the  basis of an invention made by Joseph Phister, an Austrian, whereby  coloring matter is forced into ficsh-  cut wood.

Birch, beech, alder, maple, elm, and  basswood nro the varieties most successfully treated. Tlie dye can be  forced through lengths of wood as  great as J 8ft. When seasoned and  polished, the colored wood presents  a beautiful appearance, and is largely use'd for making furniture, and also for tho fittings of ships and tram-  cars, J  bat, the most prolific oil*-field")*- the  world.
