Tliey have finished surveying  and will now crown grant their group  of eight claims and leave them until  railway transportation is provided.  Tom Horn, Lhe owner of the Black  Warrior group, and one of the lirst  pnrspcetcirs in the district, has over 150  ft. of tunnelling done, with big results.  He hits three dig strong leads, whicli  in some way are naturally scraped or  liroken off, exposing tons and tons of  solid ore.  Jas. McMahon, one of the owners of  lhe Surprise group, where he and his  partners have heen working for some,  weeks, left for his home in Revelstoke  on Monday. :Mr. McAIahon is so well  pleased with the ore shewing and  results of their work on the Surprise  group that he will return in the  course ' of a month, and it is just  possible that the owjiers will continue  sinking the shaft on the lead this  winter. D; Morgan is still working.  The owners have built a trail to their  property unassisted, arranged for  camping quarters, and taking it all  round have made good progress this  season.  Messrs. Vince Initio one of the  lessees and Andy Ferguson one of the  owners, left on Monday for the Trail  smeller to accompany the first shipment of. 2'2 tuns, which Assayer  Whan lion estimates will run close  around ii>.!0() to the ton, after many  careful average assays.  The crosscut from  the east  drift  in  lhe Nettie Ij. is in over 25 ft.  and still  no sign of lhe. footw:ill, running in ore  all   the   way.    Down   in    the    winze  where work is being pushed  ahead,  a  fine, new strike, or rat her an unexpected  widening out of lhe lead is shown,    in  tlie tipper slope ihe ore is so  rich  thai  it is being sacked ri-^ht from   the  pay-  streak.

The    Aiiglo-Lardeau     Gold   Mining  syndicate are about to take up a working bond on the Silver Dollar group of  properties   on   Fish     Creek   in       the  Luideaii country.     This  property belongs  at piesent to Mr. . Joseph   Best  unci is situated,   it   is   claimed, on the  Beatrice lead, about seven miles   from  Cam bourne or 15 from   Comaplix,   on  Mohawk   creek,   which   is   itself    an  affluent of   Pool creek,   a tributary of  Fish creek.     The group on the moiin-,  tain side about 4.000 to 5.000 feet above  the.Iake is   approached   by   a   wagon  road' fiom   Comaplix   to  Cainboiune  and ;\ trail from thence to the propei ty.  The latter part of the road passes over  a   mountain   the     precipitousness  of  which can be gathered  from   the fact  lhat there are   upwaids   of 75 switch-  bucks, on  the way   to   the   mine.     A  party   of   eight .miners     packed    in I  sufficient   supplies   last    Monday   to  slnrl.work'.    Jt is.proposed to continue  the   tunnel*, 'which   was  driver, in"'in  order t.o   crosscut   the ledge   another  ten feet, wliich should cut  the lead   if  it is in place..  , Ou   the   completion of  this a shaft will be sunk on  the "vein  at. a little distance from the tunnel   so  as to piove the pioperty in more than  one,place.   .  Some ������3,000 worth of work has  already been done upon the group, but  some of it, us is inevitable in proving  a new property, is dead. The ptoposi-  tion is a high grade galena one. Some  assays taken of the ore give results of  $125 of all value-., silver and lead.���������  Rossland Miner.    -  THE CITY COUNCIL  The Council Refers the Water and Light-:  to a Committee cf the Whole  Thc council met as usual on Friday'  last.

IIKVUSUK  RAID THAT FAILED  THE NEW UNIFORM.  Hereafter, there will be no thin red  lines, says the London Daily Mail.  It  will  be a thin line of mud color.  "Working days, fighting days, ordinary every days, the British soldier  -will be clothed in that neutral lint that  does not show itself against the- reck  or the burnt grass of lhe veldt in  South Africa when there is a kopje  to be carried. Khaki i.s lhe color of  the   future.  The Daily Mail has the highest authority for stating that thc uniform ot  the future will be khaki. All arms,  horse, foot and dragoons, artillery and  army service, officer and private���������  they are all to wear thai same monotonous,   uninteresting  color.  Never a war but leaves its impression on the details oC army service.  This war is to abolish the red coat.  At the same time thc army is not  to lose its butterfly tints entirely, it  ���������would be a national calamity and a  check to tlie recruiting sergeant's industry if thc- red broadcloth were to  he wholly a vanishing quantity. The  ���������war office realizes to the full the value  . of a red splash of color in the black  coated crowd of a London street. So  the soldier's costume is to have a  two fold existence. The red coat is  to emerge from his khaki chrysalis on  Sundays and holidays and at any  other time when he is intended to be  a spectacle, and not a working soldier,  as, for instance, on dress parade.  Thc- army is to have, a full dress  uniform with red coats, more striking,  more- distinguished than his present  red coat, it is to'be much more finely  frogged, much more  than . ever  a  uniform  fully    tasselled  was   in  all  the  army's  history.      But for commercial  purposes*���������still the khaki.  Khaki, also, is to be the hat of the  future, and, moreover, it is to be of a  type unknown in history. No more  nor less "than a khaki billycock hat Is  tho war office answer to the disaster  at Aldershot last week. Tommy ln a  billycock hat will be a feature of the  London streets as soon as Lord Roberts has put an end to the South African campaign. Also the billycock  is likely to carry with It a sp������c-lt.s o������  awning, carried or. whalebone rafters,  ���������and projecting from the novel helmet.  That, of course, is t.nly for field .days  and days of exposure in the sun. But,  when the methods develop. It may .be  taken as certain that there will ,bo  no more field days of -fatalities.  The present war in .South Africa U  Hhowing the nearest approach the  British army has ever made to rational dress In the field. It seems almost Incredible in these days of easy  and serviceable khaki, ior Instance.  that the Life Guards fought at "Waterloo in scarlet coatees, light blue  overalls with gokl stripes down the  sides, and heavy brazen helmets of old  Roman pattern, with a black bearskin  crest and a red yellow tnd blue  "hackle feather."  Cuirasses, which are now only worn  for show, were introduced some time  after, being* first worn at the coronation of King George the Fourth.  A huge bearskin cap���������like that now  worn by the fncitmiard-;, but nearly  twice as big���������was- introduced in tho  Household Cavalry in the reign of  William IV. This was replaced by  the present pattern r.f helmet In the  early reign of Queen Victoria.  At last we have got to the realm  of common sense. Tn one particular  v.e might with benefit copy the rifleman's uniform of a century ago. AU  tlie rifle corps at that date wore green  ���������and it was often practically invisible to the foe.  Moonshiner's Daughter, Dressed   as a  Boy, Plays Shaqi Game on  the  Officers.  One  of  the   prisoners al   the  spring  term of the Tennessee federal courl in  1SP0,    arraigned   under    the     general  charge of illicit distil'mg of liquor,, was  a  young  woman. On tlie court calendar she was Lou Quinn, but somebody  had    written    "The    Little    Wildcat-  after  the    name,    and    the sobriquet  clung.  Sitting i" the prisoner's box, In the  midst of ninety and nine rough, wild-  eyed mountaineers, she might have  been a murderer or a robber, and  looked the part, but she was only the  firsl woman "moonshiner" the officers  had ever haled to court, and it was  this distinction and not the brilliant  line of the homespun she wore or any  personal grace or womanly charm that  drew the stare of the court loungers  in her direction.  The men around her were old offenders for the most part���������lank, cadaverous dirteaters. with their own  ideas concerning the rights of mountaineer., to life, liberty and the  making of "moonshine." The woman  was with'them and one of* them. It  may lie added thai 90 of the men were  convicted and sentenced lo various  terms or imprisonment in the penitentiary.  The Little Wildcat was acfiuittcd.  Tho jury was made up of old men,  some ot them with daughters, perhaps  about the age of the girl before them:  the district attorney was a young man  and unmarried: so somehow the case  was never made out as clearly as It  might have been, and tho girl walked  away and went back to the mountains.  Tlie case itself was pretty enough, as  far as such things go, and simple  enough after it was-understood, but 11  took three ot the oldest men In the  service three months to understand  how they had been outwitted by a  backwoods girl.  It happened ln a part ot east Tennessee which is supposed to have  given birth to the original moonshiner, where raw liquid fire which  comes from corn meal was for years  and years the coin of the realm. The  illicit stilts in the mountains around  Knoxville and Fayetvllle and McMin-  -ville���������have���������boon���������flelds-^of��������� battle���������and-  bloodshed many times.  "Wherever there was a band of  "wildcatters" there was fear and anxiety among the law abiding citizens.  To Incur the enmity of one was to invite the vengeance of all. Men who  turned state's evidence against the  moonshiners often found themselves  homeless In a single night and a hangman's nooso swinging at a man's front  gate was not considered a good omen.  Eut such lawlessness Is not rampant  now. There havo lieen no desperate  battles between revenue raiders and  the mountalners In some years. Most  of the distillers operate under thu law  and  live decently nnd  quietly.  A reward in given for all information which leads to the arrest of wildcatters or the destruction of their  stills, and the government Is rolent-  less In proeectstlng offenders. The  chief raider of -the district Ih a man  who has been *jn tho service many  years. He Is tall, slnuewy, robust a-jid  fearless. His name Is r:r*ll. hut In  tlw> mountains they call him "Old  Red." possibly because of his enra-  ptoxlon.  On a cold, dreary day InMatch ISOfl.  "Old Red" and "Riir" Robertson and  one Jenkins wore talking politics? in  the revenue office at. Nashville and  laying plans for various spring raids  which wero lo be made, an soon as the  weather permitted. Robertson is the  man who ������hot his way out nf thf famous raid of 'DH In the mountains near  Me.MInvillP. when five of his companions  were killed  from ������mbiisli.  Like his friend Hell. Robertson Iind  a keen eye that looks slraight down a  gun barrel and hits where II looks, a  flushed countenance���������which lie ul tributes to long exposures and hardships���������and a fierce, red muslm-ho.  Jenkins' Is low. dark and quiet nnd a  reformed  moonshiner.  He Is the best guide aad scout In  Tennessee,    and    "stands    in"    with  Uncle "Davy" Minn, the revenue collector. The throe men had been talking for a long time, and lt was almost  dusk when the door opened nud a boy,  rather short and stout and shabbily  dressed, entered the room and walked  slraight to tho chief raider. As Robertson  said afterward:  "When he come 'cross the room 't  seemed as how he'd been shot from ,f  other side o' the hall. He marched  up to '.Red' spank us you please, and  he se*_, sez he: 'Air-you Mister Bell?'  An' Bell looked at um 's it the .old  'oman was i-oun'. and lie sex: "ThaPs  right. Thaf's me.' An'-the boy*se-z,  sez he, In a kind o'. whisper: 'I knows  wher' a big still Is orrunnin' down  hum. It's old SI Quinn's. How  mucli'll you give to git ther'?' We'd  been after old Si Quinn quite a long  spell an' had made it hot without  provln" nothin' so's we could jerk  um up. So 'Red' thought a minute  and sez: 'I'll give you $50.' It's'a  lot ot money for a country, boy, but  he looked sharp enough, and if we  land old SI Quinn along with his truck  It would have been worth five times  the money."  The bargain was struck and the boy  promised to meet a posse al a point ln  thc public road 20 miles from McMIn-  vllle whenever he should be needed.  When the raid was agreed upon several days later, It was the writer's  good fortune to bo invited lo go along  aa one of the posse. "There's prospect for some fun," Dell said before  starting, "and you get $���������"! per day for  expenses. Bring along your gun in  your hip pocket and be at the depot  at 7 o'clock in the morning."  He was the only one in sight of the  men when the train pulled into the  station. A colored boy brought a  leather bag into the car. which might  have been for golf sticks. But it was  not.' Bell said that the other men  would get on somewhere up the road.  At Talluahoma wo changed cars and  Jenkins and Robertson came from afferent coaches and stalked indifferent-  about  the platform. No one of thc  ly  This   was  We  were  kins,  party spoke to the other,  for "the good of the expedition: Bell  said. It was all mysterious, solemn  and strange. At S o'clock in thc  afte-noon we reached McMinville.  Tlwre are three hcstelrles in the town,  and the others went to different  houses. "I followed Bell to the Dew  Drop Inn. The clerk winked knowingly when Boll gave a fictitious name,  and" asked:     "Who    is    it  lo    be  this  lime?"  After supper the chief raider went  out to reconnoiter. Two familiar shadows glided around tho corner of the  sta.ble and were joined by four others.  They were local secret service men.  In half an hour Cell came to the Inn.  registered, and shook hands with the  clerk. This meant that they had  heard from the boy, and the "still  would be closed that night.  To allay suspicion Bell spent the  night ancl the following day in a nearby town. Bight horses were ordered  to be In readiness at 7 o'clock, and the  men spent the day in their rooms.  Bell came in at G o'clock and said it  was'"all right.", and the start was  made Trom the stable at S. We rode  through  the   town ou a dead run.  The horses were good, home-bred  Tennesseans. with a long, swinging  stride that measures miles. We  crossed bridges and creeks, to begin  with, and swam a river to pass round  a  town Instead of  through it.  had   ridden   several   hours   and  deep   in   the   forest,   when   Jen-  who was   leading,   stopped   suddenly, rased himself in his saddle, and  shouted:      "Who's  there?"     The  ominous click of rifles and revolvers and  the crackling of dry  twigs under the  tired   horses   was   all   that   broke   the  stillness.     Something   white, ouilined  against     the    inky    blackness      was  ^^���������rnirig"ir'rO"uriVr"_r���������tend���������in���������thv-roadr  " 'Fore Gawd," the negro boy whispered.  "I s'pect it's  ghostJ=**s."  The white flgurf: came nearer, and in  answer to a second challenge, a shrill  voice called out: "It's rat:  shoot!"  "It's   the   boy,"   Bill   said,  the  lead  there,    Johnny,    and  us up."  "Johnny" rode a small, white mule,  which seemed like a bearon light to  mir straining oys. Th" mul������ Jogged  along easily, and th.'- boy told how Si  Quinn "had got the- neighbors down  on him by Idling his durn dogs kill  all the sheep, and they were going to  got even."  We rode three hours longer through  narrow lanes, hedged in on each side  by zig-zag fences, over rough fields,  studded with _=harp roots and corn  stalks; through underbrush and over-  brush nnd rock ribb"d hills and deep  mud holes, till finally we drew rein at  the fivit. ot a great, bare mountain  that loomed up suddenly at our heads.  A narrow path -which made a white  seam in the mountain side an up as  far aa we could see. A thin coat of  ico covered the rock������ and made tho  climb rough and dangerous. The-boy  ������aid that the still was half a mile up.  and we could see a thin line of blue  smoke- curling up fronf somewhere  above and meltin* Into the clou da  that circled about tne summit.  The horses were left with tho negro,  ancl the raiders bo.en the ascent It  was slow, weary work. One hundred  yards from the top the light seemed to  grow brighter, and the mouth of tho  cave lhat had been dug in the side  of  liie hill waa clearly outlined.  The roar nf a si ream that ran within afew feel from where we stood  drowii'-d every sound of our approach.  I Sell ordered the men to separate, surround the hi ill, and at a given signal  tn charge  the cave.  Tliei-*-* were five mlnulcg of waiting,  und holding of breaths; and then tho  clear, shrill whistle from Bell.' Then  a wild rush and tramping over brush  and mud and four Winchesters and  three revolvers were poking down the  mouth of the cave.  A bright fire burned under the caldron which held the copper "worm,"  and the whole outfit was lu place.  Thero were 10 barrels of "beer" under  the shed, and the still was In full  operation. ,,  Every piece of loose apparatus, oven  to the axe. had been removed, and the  officers had great dltficulty In destroying tho still.  They turned the inflammable beer  out of the barrels, poured the mash on  the floor ot tho shed, tore oft the roof  und made a bonfire which lighted tho  woods around. Not a moonshiner!  It was evident that they had been  forewarned.  It was long utter.daybrek when the  crestfallen posse reached; the foot of  the niounuilii. The boy and the white  mule had disappeared. When we  passed Quinn's house on the return  trip, a young woman was standing on  the front slops. ' She did not know of  any boy In the neighborhood or any  white mule.     Neither did Quinn.  They asked pleasantly enough if lhe  officers had had any luck. Quinn  had some, 10 year old in' the house  which the ofllcers could have if they  wanted It; there wasn't any moonshine in that. The ofllcers wanted it,  drank it and felt better. But they  wero beaten and acknowledged lt.  The boy had gotten the $50 and the  officers had destroyed $20 worth of  "moonshine."     Not a bad bargain for  tho boy.  Throe months later Cell and Robertson and Jenkins found the white mule  lu Quinn's stable, and a week later  Quinn's daughter was arraigned in  court. The missing link in the evidence was tho pair c>r trousers she had  worn when she was a boy.  The identity of the white mule was  established; and all the witnesses  swore that, to the best of their knowledge and belief, the girl had ridden  thcmulc on the night of the raid. The.  "pants" were never found, and the  girl went back to live in peace lu the  land of moonshine and mountains.  pare of Case Bird*.  How  and where  will you . keep your  bird?  That cleanliness Is obviously of the  first importance and that it la hard to  keep fanciful cages free from dirt and  parasites Is enough to condemn them.  Swiss cottages, pagodns and the like,  hung with pendants und sparkling with  metallic ornaments, are both tasteless  and dangerous. The bird will pick at  the bright points und dangling spangles  until it poisons or chokes itself, and the  corners and crinkles are so many lodgings for dirt und vermin. Wooden cages  aro to be avoided because subject to impurity and brass ones on account of the  great danger from verdigris, for the gilding soon wears off: ihe gleaming wires  are also harmful to the bird's eyes, aud  they offer no contrast with its yellow  plumage. If you.must have a cage ot  the popular bell shape, get a painted one,  aud repaint it us often us seems desirable, says Harper's Bazar.    .  Where you shall place your canary or  other bird to good advantage.is a matter  to consider carefully. In summer weather he enjoys being out of doors or hi an  open window, but not in the direct hot  sunshine, nor exposed to a shower, nor  where dogs or cats, hawks or shrikes cun  seize him or perhaps 'frighten him to  death. Remember that these little' creatures may easily he frightened into illness or even death.  THI2  ESSENCE  OF   HAPPINKS3  Don't  Git in  hurry  A 'scene of   motley contentment and  juvenile happiness that any gold king  might envy,  is a daily phase of slreel  lire ou Clinton street,  near the police  court. Tbe pickaninny is found  there,  smiling    unci   ingenuous,     in   all     hia  native   simplicity.       Their   playground  Is  in front uf a row  of   frame buildings, uiipniiiled  and  neglected, though  their  inhabitant    show  little signs   of''  squalor.    .-U leasl, misery ancl poverty  are nol depleted in their happy countenances.       An   old   mammy   lias    for  years looked  out at   the panorama of  life just  outside the city police court.  Every day she is perched at her window,     where   she     can     measure     the  frailities   of  human   naLiire  and   pass  her own quaint judgment on the sinfulness of mankind.   She has seen lhe  yellow wagon bear unfortunates to the  house of  correction  fur several  years,  and   though  she  is    prist  DO  years   of  age,     her     faculties     are    remarkably  acute.     The brood of pickaninnies are  proteges  of  hers,   and  some  of   them  are her greal grandchildren.   Emancipation day is a. day of more than  ordinary  moment    with    her    and    the  pickaninnies, and it is   then that   the  watermelon   market    is  flooded    with  orders.       The   pickaninnies    are   wonderfully gifted vocally, and those who  have  heard   them   sing:   "I  Think   I'll  Have - to   Telegraph   Ma   Baby,"   and  other melodious ditties, can appreciate  the effect on the casual looker.-Detroit  Free Press.  How I.udlea Wrote I.nair Alto.  There was a time Indies were taught  the Italian school of penmanship. They  wrote ou very thin nolo paper with a pen  not entirely under control and seemingly  apt to jib and shy ut any word ot more  tliun'*tw**.-*fiyl.la.blcs. This was tho uce of  crossing unexpected parts of the country, so that tho trail left at page 3 was  was sometimes resumed longitudinally  on page 1, again taken up on page 4 and  the run finished in various unexpected  corners. In those days it must have been  a wary and astute reader who ci������nld  boast never to have missed a postscript.  One likes to think that they still exist���������  these old, old letters���������tied up very carefully in the desks of aged bachelors, and  that the sight gives memories. The ink  fades to yellow, the thin- note paper  gives way to the piece of red tape wliich  acts as waist belt, but thoughts of this  kind remain clear and perfect till the  end. There was, too, au early Victorian  habit of using colored inks, and a pathetic violet was the only wear for a sentimental pen.  Saving- Step*.  It i3 not always the hardest worker  that accomplishes the most; It is the one  who plans judiciously and executes with  the lenst waste ot energy.  There is a homely proverb that says,  "Make your head do the work of your  heels." There is n deal of sound sense  in it, and comfort,-loo, if one will but  follow it up, for it doesn't hurt the head,  and it does rest lhe heels.  Train the family to save your steps. A  too unselfish mother makes selfish children. One who habitually picks up after  her household fritters awny her energy  and does a positive harm to those she  would help. Each child should be required to keep his or her things put  away in their proper places. Orderliness  saves labor. The assistance of the father may well conic in at this point to recti force the mother's authority. When  he suys, "Do this to save your mother,"  and practices what he preaches, it begins to ho the law of thnt household to  he thoughtful of the overtaxed one.

Mrs. Margaret E. Songster tells a story  of an old tima acquaintance who had begun life at the foot of the ladder and had  made a good deal of money, but found  littls time lo acquire culture. When his  first child was still small, he had a picture of his wife and the baby painted.  With each of the ��������� eight successors the  reigning baby's face was painted over its  predecessor*!, while the mother's face remained the same. Mrs. Sangster once  asked the man why he did not have a  new picture of his wife made, as she had  changed somewhat with the years. "Oh,  she looks just the samo to me as.sho did  then," he replied," pointing to the old  -tinie-^portrait.^-'.'and-I-canuot-ha-havliig  her painted with every baby that comes."  To Clean SpongH,  Don't throw ��������� a ' sponge away because  it appears to be good for nothing. Very  often old sponges can be cleaned to be as  good as new.  Make a strong snds with hot water and  soap, dissolving in it a small handful of  washing soda. Plunge the sponge into  this aud allow it to soak for oome time.  Then kneed and rub it until perfectly  clenn. Rinse in very hot water, then'in  tepid water' antil every particle of soap  lias disappeared. Lay on' a clean cloth  in the sun to dry. -  Care of Shoes.  To alternate in wearing shoes nnd to  keep those not on the feet on wooden  lasts' helps to keep away those unpleasant  crossei which will spoil th* appearance  of shoes which nre not treated with this  csre. The lasts are not expensive. -As  much care as possible in regard .to thc  change of temperature for patent leather  shoes mid occasional milk baths help to  keep them in good condition. With these  shoes, more than the others, the use of  the last and the giving of an occasional  rest are valuable.  Cleaning Fins l*aee.  Occasionally a piece of fancy work on  the lace order does not show soil enough  to justify sacrificing its lacy newness to  the. process of washing. .If such work is  hid away for a week in a heavy book  bctwoen blue tissue paper, having had  rubbed into the soiled places calcined  mn;ncsla or pipe clay, it will come out  cleaned and brightened by tbe process.

Montreal, August 9.���������The Seawan-  baka cup remains In Canada, after  three excellent contests in which the  visiting yacht, the Minnesota, of St.  Paul, made strong efforts to capture  the trophy. The r.etl Coat won the  "concluding raco Wednesday by over  two minutes, nmld the wildest applause, accompanied by a whistling  demonstration from the flotilla at the  finishing buoy.  A start was made at 2:30, the Red  Coat getting across the line first. A  strong north west wind was blowing,  and good speed was maintained. The  race was stopped for a time, however,  the Red Coat being in the lead. The  cause of the stoppage was due to the  second buoy having been blown away.  A new start was made from that  point at 3:40, tho Minnesota leading.  Five minutes afterwards the Canadian  boat caught up,, but a thick mist pro-  vented a good view from that time on.  The Red-Coat, however, kept up the  lead, finishing at 5:22:28, thus winning  Wednesday's race, and successfully  defending the Seawanhaka cup. The  Minnesota finished.at 5:24:46.  Terlble Account  of  the. Way  Russian  Toops Murdered Chinese Women  and Children.  San Francisco, August' 8.���������A story of  Russian brutality in'China Is told by  Mrs. E. B. Drew, wife of the British  commissioner of customs "at Tien Tsin,  who arrived from the Orient on the  transport Logan.     She says:  "During the bombardment we lived  most of ,tho time ln the cellar of our  house. Our house ��������� was partially  wrecked by t__3 shells. Sleep was out  of the question most of the time, and  so unstrung wore we. that but little  food satisfied us. There was ever  present the haunting fear of the Chinese triumphing and slaughtering  every foreigner and'convert: Some,  probably all of the' women, were prepared to act ' in case"* tlie" Chinese  effected an entrance, but lt appears  the allied forces were also prepared to  act. I did not know at" the time, but  I learned later that 10 or 20 men had  been detained to kill all the foreign  women in case the Chinese were the  victors."  Mrs. Drew, with much Indignation,  then spoke of attrocities committed  by Russian troops, saying, they pillaged, looted, tortured and murdered  right and left. There were many infants and children killed by bayonet  thrustB, and many were tossed from  iinvonpt r-o'DtP onlt*- to b������ ?au*bt and  tossed time and time again. There is  ample evidence of these unspeakable  occurrences. Out from Tien Tsin,  along the Pel Ho and Yellow rivers,  are numerous little villages, the Russians swept through Uie villages destroying life and properly. The Russians also drove women aad children  into the Pei Ho and Yellow rivers,  where they were drowned. There was  no attempt at concealing any of the  remarkably barbarous conduct. 1 do  not pretend jto say how many women  and children woro biiloheied by.tbe  Russians, I never heard    tlie number  NEWS   BY   WIRE  Lord Roberts-.cables that he fears  Colonel Hoar's, garrifion .at Elands  River has -surrendered. * General  Baden-Powell's force > is" ��������� returning  from Rustenburn'.with General Ian  Hamilton..

In  tho course of a bitter reply, accused  Mr. Burdetto Coutts ot "maligning  tho character of the British army"  nnd sneering at what he called "the  honorable member's evident nervousness as to the result of the inquiry."  He poured out a veritable lava-tide  of scorn nnd attack, some of his  utterances being almost inaudible  amid the din rising from tho Liberal  benches.

A Brick Hearted Elm.  In New Brunswick, N. J��������� is an elm  tree that literally has a heart of stone, if  flintlike bricks and mortar may so bo  classiGcd. A long time ago the elm was  one of three largo, trees planted around  thc grave of a famous Indian chief, but  with the growth of tho town two of the  trees were cut down to givo place to a  street. The remaining elm at once began  to die at the heart, and in a few years  the trunk was honeycombed by insects.  Then nt a Fourth of July celebration the  punkliko heart caught fire and burned  out. Supported by a thin' shell of a  trunk, the tree threatened to fall In any  high wind. Then it occurred to its owner, Mrs. Elmendorf, to have tho Inside  filled with brick and mortar. This was  done, nnd for yenrs the big tree has rested ou its stony support, getting its nourishment through the bark and shading  the home of its benefactor.  Gave Her Hia Birthday.  Robert Louis Stevenson was visiting a  friend in California and speedily became  a great confidant of his host's little  daughter. One'day'the subject of birthdays was being.discussed, and then the  young lady bewailed her hard fate. She  bad been born on tlie 20th day of February and therefore bad enjoyed only  two birthdays in .nil her 11 years. The  kind' hearted writer sympathized with  her. He meditated a'few minutes, then  went to the writing desk and drew up  tho following document: "I, Robert Louis  Stevenson, in a sound state of mind and  body, having arrived at an age when 1  no longer have nny use for birthdays,  do give nnd boquenth my birthday, on tho  13th day of November, to Miss Adelaide  Ide, to be hers from this year as long ns  she wishes it.

London, August 8. ��������� Parliament  prorogued today after the '.appropriation- bill had been 'passed by  both houses.'t The Queen's speech at  proroguing of parliament, after stating that relations with the powers  of Europe and America continued  friendly and a reference to the* establishment of the commonwealth of  Australia, refers to the war in  South Africa, which has placed in  the strongest light the heroism and  high military Qualities of the troops  brought together under my banner  from this country, from Canada, Australian and 'my South African possessions.  The speech then says:  "Believing tho continued independence of the . republics to be a constant danger to the peace of South  Africa, I authorize the annexation of  the states as a (first step to thc  union of the race under an institution which may ln time he developed  so nS|to secure rights and privileges  In- South   Africa."  Referring to China the speech from  the throne says:  .Edmonton Bulletin: A .visit to the  market' gardens of D. Ross";at this  time affords splendid evidence of the  productiveness of the soil and climate  of North Alberta. Flowers in endless  variety and countless numbers line  the walks along a .sunny bank sloping to the south, * while the large flats  below the hill' are "laid out in ��������� beds,*  drills and rows of vegetables of every  kind. Besides the ordinary vegetables  such as onions, beets, carrots, turnips,  cabbages, potatoes, lettuce, etc., all  developed to''an unusual degree for  the season, Mr. Ross has plots of several products, -which are usually regarded as the inhabitants of.a milder  climate, and as either doubtful experiments or hopeless cases at this  distance from the equator. The  broad, .deep green leaves of rows. of  tobacco plants*are an unusual sight,  while a plot of tomato plants with  largely developed fruit and a row  of pumpkin vines bearing' pumpkins  over a foot ln; diameter and some ot  which are novc.' yellowlns. with maturity- play sad havoc .with the.theory  that these are too delicate plants for  the rugged climate of Edmonton.
