A serious wieck, occurred on tlio  Nakusp and Slocan Railway last  Tuesday afternoon in wliich James  Oonnachur, one of tlie best known  locomotive drivers in British Columbia  losL liis life. It appears that bush  fires, which are raging in that disti ict,  set fire'to a small biidge and burned  out the tinibeis below, leaving the  biidge to all appearances intact.  Engineer James Comiacher was  not aware of the damage to the  bridge a nd proceeded to cross as  usual when his engine crashed  through, followed hy some of the  cais. The engineer had not.time to  make good his escape and was  crushed to death by Uie wreck. The  fiieman, Chess Clark, however, wns  f-irtiinate in being able to jump, and  escaped with but tew bruises. The  hraketiinn and baggageman, the Huit-  Aijj understands, were both seriously  injured, but to what exteno it is  unable to state at thia writing. All  along the line the news of the death  of Jim ' Connacher will be received  with many regrets, for the deceased  was one of the most' popular and  tuistwoithy employees of the C.P.R.  in the mountains.  .

The phrase is unfortunate, hu-  caTs-^it is misleading .and inaccurate.  ' This worlfl is made up of things and  forces. Thoughts are more subtle than  mere things and far more potential.  They arc forces which change a man's  life  for  better  or  for  worse.  If vou apply tlie principles of wireless telegraphy to spiritual concerns  you will see tlie full scope of my statement. Wc may safely do this, for there  i3 a spiritual law running parallel to  every physical law, and no man can  ��������� discover a physical law without suggesting a corresponding spiritual law.. In this  ���������way all thinkers stand shoulder to  6houldcr, lifting the vvoild out of the  old into the new.  The wireless teligraphcr tell3 us that  a word or its' equivalent creates a vibration of tlie air. as a pebble creates  a ripple in tlie pond, and this vibration  speeds on its way to the destined terminus, however distant, anil there makes  itself known and felt. Wc arc living  in an age of miracles, or, in other words,  an age of discovery, and this is one  of the startling results.  In like manner a word of scorn or  of praise hurled into the spiritual universe from a heart that hates or loves  becomes a living force, not lost iu tho  general oonfusion a*, a single' note ia  lost in the multitude of sounds, bul.  going straight to the man or woman,  against whom- or in favor of whom it  .was directed.

The American got up, and promptly  knocked thc, policeman down in return.  He was arrested, tried, and condemned  to be shot the next morning*.  Mr. Lorlng, the American consul,  expostulated with the autihoritles, saying that it would be monstrous to put  a man to death for such an offence;  ���������but they paid no attention to him. On  the day specified the sailor was  brought cut and pinioned, in readiness  for execution.  The English consul, preparing to  hoist the Union Jack, saw a crowd in  the field opposite, and realized that the  execution was -about to take place. He  rushed over to tihe American -consul,  and cried:  "Loring! You're not going to let  tihem shoot that man?"  "What can I do?" w;as the answer. "1  have protested against it. I can do no  more."  "Give me your flag!"-.cried the Englishman.  With the two flags In his hand, he  ran to the field, elbowed his way  through the crowd and soldiery, and  readhod the prisoner. He folded the  American flag about him, and laid the  Union Jack over It. He stepped back,  and faced the officers and soldiery.  "Shoot, if you dare," he shouted,  "through the heart of England and  America!"  The man was not shot.  ������  i LtW^Ticnaifon of C;e d'euerAi.

A party of young people who were  tenting in a, grove near a glen nf a  N'orthtleld Conference witnessed nn Incident which seems to show a friendly  und .'..landing among squirrels. Tlie  Decrfleld Valley "Endeavorer" tells the  pleasing story.  An out-of-doors dinner had just boen  finished, and the party were still sit-  tln(.- at the table, when a red squirrel,  with glistening, eager .eyes, came  creeping down a tree which stood near  the table. He crept nearer and nearer,  and  finally leaped   upon  the  table.  The. lady who was presiding said,  "Yes, help yourself to anything you  want!"  Upon this Invitation" the little fellow  made bold to creep up to ix loaf of  bread from which only a slice or two  had been cut. He seized It and dragged  It to the side of the table, and somehow managed to scramble'down the  side with It to the ground. He then  fixed -his-.: teeth In the crusty .and  dra jed it away and down the steep  sides of the glen.  But when he .cached the bottom and  confronted the 3teep rise on the other  Bide It was too much for him. Then  he gave a sort of Call; which seemed  to be understood, for soon squirrels  were seen coming from several directions.- They crowded round him, and  after a Httl*-* conference, all took hold,  and with tug and strain they managed to bring the loaf to the top of the  hill, and disappeared with lt In tho  woods beyond.  FIRST encountered him ln the  streets of a Montana "cow-town,"  where he was affording amusement to a crowd of men and boys,  while a tipsy musician was attempting the Boulanger March  on an antique plan-o. To save him  from further abuse I bought him, and  ever afterwards he was known to his  little world as "General Boulanger."  We grew to look upon the General as  an interesting scientific phenomenon.  His was a soul saturated with hate for  ���������all men. Any amiable qualities he may  have possessed In early youth had been  killed by abuse. He knew 'but distrust  and fear. We determined to reclaim  him, and in our lonely camp the General became the object of such flattering attention that only his unconquerable misanthropy kept him from becoming an arrant snob. For a long  ���������time our efforts were unavailing, but  as the weeks went by I thought I noticed a little less shrinking, fewer  'growls, and a. faint gileam of recognition In the glassy eyes when I approached. I felt the thrill of conquest,  and redoubled my efforts. The heart of  stone was.at last touched, and my theory in regard to "yaller dogs" was  correct.  We returned to thc outskirts of civilization, and one day, driving once  more to the town, so filled with painful memories for the General, I was  surprised to behold him again in the  street, .slinking about with others of  his kind. 'The slight results of our patient labors were in peril. It would  never do to allow the. General's slowly  growing faith in.man to be nipped in  the bud by further town life, so with  infinite pains I secured him and tied  him to the back of my wagon. I remonstrated with him gently, as he lay  cringing in the dust, for his base desertion of the only friends he had ever  known.  The painful journey homeward began. The General betrayed a distinct  unwillingness to ride, so he7 was allowed to follow sat the end of a long  rope behind. With his usual,acumen,  he fancied tne strength of two half-  broken broncos to be as naught compared to his fiery determination to remain in town. So he sat down. With  an expression of pained surprise on his  countenance he traversed: a few hundred yards of the dusty road ;in'-this  position, * and th;n tried his back. It  was quite In keeping with the eccentricities of the Gem al's mental processes  that a simpler method did not occur to  him, until, striking a. deep rut, he: was  huriedhigh into* the air, and by some  happy chance alighted on the extremities nature- had. provided for purposes  of 'locomotion. Then, with bowed head,  he trotted conte.-te&ly/along. I turned  to look at him occasionally, and flattered myself that I saw in his demeanor evidences of regret at his folly, and  a determination to do better In the future. I spoke encouragingly to him,  but he was too absorbed in meditation  to look up.  A hot afternoon's ride brought us to  -an Irrigating ditch.;. AfterraMling over  the few loose planks which served Vas a  .bridge, I stopped to repair a break ;n  the harness. The General, hot and  dusty, at once dashed into the little  stream to drink and bathe. With my  backto the tired horses I watched him.  As I looked he performed:his colossal  act of ..folly,'.;the..'final' episode: in his*  Witless career. After refreshing himself on one side of the tiny bridge, quite  unmindful i of, his con nee tion with ;my  rear axle, he laboriously splashed under the bridge and: came out the other  side. Cooled by his bath, he came to*  the side of the wagon' and looked  sweetly up at me. Immensely impressed by. his sagacity, :I was on the*  pointof alighting' to free him from his  dangerous predicament, when the. hand  of fate/ever turned against him, struck  the  last blow.  A fly stung my off bronco, and with  a squeal he and h'.s' startled mate  rushed madly down the road. I. was  hurled to the "bottom of the wagon,  but not before I saw the General turn,  a perfect back somersault and shoot  toward the stream. In a cloud of dust  he disappeared Into tht* water, and then  follbwed a symphony of howls as he  traversed the dark and damp nether  side of the bridge, to be shot up into  dayllsrht once more by the united  strength of two frightened broncos. In  a shower of spray he struck the road  twenty feet from the bridge, and did  not gain his feet until T had brought  the-horses~tTr*a-'slaTTuSlii5vJ-Onee-more-I-  turned.to the General. He wa*=a pitiable sight. Covered with mud and  half strangled, -he quivered with cold  and rage.  As we trav*? ed the short distance  to camp I tried to fancy what his reflections were. Knowing him as well  as 1 did, I felt sure that he looked  upon the past weeks of kindness as  part of an elaborate scheme to win his  confidence enough to practice this last  insult upon hirn. I dreaded the "consequences of the '-episode,' and planned  new blandishments to reinstate myself  in his* favor.  Arriving In camp, my flrst thought  was to release' him from thn wagon.  But the water and mud made It dlffi-  , cult to unfasten the knot at his collar.  Feeling keenly the. embarrassment ol  his position, I untied the rope from the  axle and threw It on the ground. "  The General watched me sulkily, and  when the end of that hated rope fell  free he bounded to his feet. With one  final snarl of utter hate and disgust he  was oft like a shot; not ln a wild, purposeless circle, but straight tut the  flight of an arrow across the prairie.  Away he went, with the lariat dragging behind him.  With eyes raised to the solitary snow  peak a hundred miles away he flew  from us, with a heart full of hate and  a grim determination to put half a  continent, If need be, between himself  and tyrant man. As I watched tha  little cloud of dust, raised by hl������ hurrying feet, disappear on the horizon,  I realized the futility of battling  against fate.  Then our packer, broke the silence:  "There goes the ornrlest cur In the  world with the best lariat In Montana."  ���������"Atlantic Monthly."

A Dream's Fulfillment  I  N an essay In "Longman's Magazine" on dreams, Horace G. Hutchinson invited people to send him  accounts of their own experiences  and ideas, and as a result he was deluged with .thousands of'letters': relating tovdreams. These he studied:carefully, and in a volume entitled "Dreams  and Their Meanings,'-' now presents his  conclusions, and quotes the most striking contributions to- illustrate the particular class of dream which he is discussing.. An interesting class of dreams  is that in-which the sleeper finds Tiimr',  self in a'certain house or room that .Is.-  familiar to him in dreams, but,,quite'  unknown to his waking hours. Here  is an Instance which Mr; Hutchinson  relates:  "A  certain  lady  dreamed: frequently  of a certain house until it had: become  exceedingly familiar to her;  she knew  all its rooms, its7 furniture; it/was as  well known to:her as that in which she  lived her waking life, an'd, like a good  wife that: has no secrets from herhus-  band, she often talked over all the details with, him, a very, pleasant fancy.'  One day they; (husband-and wife) went ���������  into   the  country   to  see  a  house  that  they thought of taking: for the summer  months. :They had not-seen it, but the  account in' the .house-agent's list: had  attracted them.   When they arrived before,lt,  they: gave a simultaneous exclamation of surprise.    'Why,' said the .  husband; 'it, is. your dream-house!"     li  was.    The coincidence attracted  them..  They took7 the house".  "In   the . course   of   their   occupancy  they learnedchat the, house.-. had the.  reputation of. being haunted;./��������� that sev- '  eral  people before them  had  t.. Iten  if  for_short-te*riii3r-but���������had-seen���������or-fan���������^j  rrled   they -had   seen���������'something/ '.and i  had \ left before -their , term :��������� of, tenancy  .xplred.

On leaving, husband and wife ax-  pressed   their, satisfaction  to the lo������al  agent.

'We  knew you w .did nut see the ghost."  "'What   do  you   mean?*<, asked    the  wife, rather nettled.  "'Oh,' the ".agent repeated, -.we knew  you Would not see the ghost.   You are'  i the ghost that people have always seen  here.' "  A Glimpse Into the Future.  HOMER G. WELLS, in a brutally  frank article ln the "Fortnightly Review," gives us a striking  glimpse Into the future through  whait most people will consider a very  highly colored lens. His description of  the New Republic Is, of course, an arraignment of the present* order of society.  "The men of the New Republic," says  Mr. Wells, "will not be squeamish  either in facing or inflicting* death, because they will have a fuller sense of  the possibilities of life than we possess. They will have an Ideal that will  make killing Worth .the while; like Ah-*  raham, they will have the fiaith to kill,  and they will have no superstitions  about death. They will naturally regard the modest suicide of Incurably  melancholy or diseased or helpless persons ns a high and courageous act ot  duty rather than a crime. And since  thoy will regard, as Indeed all men  raised above a brutish level do regard,  a very long term of Imprisonment as  Infinitely worse than death, as being  Indeed death with a living misery added to its natural terror, they will, I  conceive, where the whole tenor of a  man's actions, and not simply some  Incidental or impulsive': action, seems  to prove him unfitted for free life in  the world, consider him carefully and  condemn him and remove him from  being. All such killing will be done  with an opiate, for death Is too grave a.  thii.'^.-to be made painful or dreadful  and used as a deterrent from crime. If  deterrent punishments are used at all  In the code of the future, the deterrent  will neither be death, nor mutilation of  the body, nor mutilation of the life by  ���������imprisonment, not any horrible things  like that, but good scientifically caused  pain, *that: will leave nothing but a  memory. Yet even the memory of overwhelming pain is a sort of mutilation  of the soul. ..The idea that only thoso  .who are fit to live freely in an orderly  world state should be permitted to live  is entirely against the use of deterrent  punishments at all. Against outrageous  conduct to children or women, perhaps,  or for very cowardly or brutal assaults  of any sort, the men-of the future may  consider pain a salutary remedy, at  least during the ages of transition  while the brute is stilt at large. But  since7 most acts of this sort do,' under  conditions that neither .torture nor exasperate, point to an essential vileness  in the perpetrator, I am inclined tc.  think-that even In these cases the* men  of the coming time will be far less disposed to torture thaii^o kill. They  will have another aspeft to consider.  The conscious infliction of pain for, thc  sake of the pain Is against the better  nature of man, and it. is unsafe and demoralizing for anyone .to undertake this  duty. To kill under the seemly conditions science will afford is a far less  offensive thing.

CURTIS had a  strange experience not long  ago when he called at a bank  In Russia to ' make a draft  against his letter of credit. "I was met  at the door by a man In gorgeous livery, with a long staff ln his hand," he  writes. "He led me into a reception-  room which was sumptuously furnished.  Upon the center-table were several volumes of photographs, a city directory,  a railway guide, the last report of the  bank, two or three guide-books, and  several morning papers. Over in one  of the corners was a handsomely  carved writing-desk furnished with all  sorts of stationery. .While I'was wondering what 1 was there for, a gentleman of Irreproachable attire and manners entered, and asked how he could  serve me. I explained that I would  like two hundred and fifty dollars on  my letter ������f credit, and wondered how  he knew I wns an American, but ho  had doubtless learned from long experience to'distinguish the different nationalities, and I soon discovered by  the manner. In which he received subsequent arrivals that he could speak  German and French as fluently as  English. I 'handed him my letter of  credit, and he bowed politely and left  the room. For a time I was alone with  my own thoughts. I looked over all  the: book3 and paper-., watched the  traffic In the, street from the window,  made two or three entries In my notebook, and wondercd-if the polite gentleman had not forgotten all about me,  when a page In'buttons ., ,-iered . with  a silver tray, upon Which were two  drafts ��������� duplicates ��������� for my signature.  The: little fellow bowed like a French  dancing-master, and seemed to: be  deeply impressed ; with a; sense of responsibility. He came In several times  afterward on '-/.similar: (Service ; for  other people, and his salutes ...were.'/repeated- each time /with an exactness  ���������that showed careful training. * I was  afraid he was going to be7 gone7 all day,  an'd became impatient. I1 sat down at  the desk to write a letter, and had  written nearly: a whole sheet when he  came back with my letter of credit and  the money upon his tray. 1: ut the latter was all iii bills. I handed hlmone  of them and asked him to get it  changed. Ho bowed again and disappeared. I must have spent fifteen  minutes regretting my folly, when the  handsome manager came In to enquire  if there had been a mistake. He seemed  to think, I had - been overpaid, and was7  greatly relieved when I told him I only  wanted a bill changed. He disappeared, and it was another ten minutes  before the boy returned with the smaller bills. I had been in that room for  more than three-quarters of an hour."  Wit and Wisdom From. New Books.

At first I vaguely Intended to angle  for information, without -letting her  understand* what I was abou.; but it  occurred to me that this would be n  dishonorable mode of. procedure, and 1  blushed at myself for having entertained it. Because, no matter -what  mistakes Mr. John Bourke had madc-  ln his tactics, he had behaved generously and���������I believed���������meant chivalrously by me.  "Do you think Mr, Bourke would  mind my asking yen a few question!?  about him?" I hesitatingly, began.  "You know, perhaps, how it was that���������  he brought me to you?"  "I only know that he saw a lady almost fainting, and that she was too 111  to tell him anything much about herself, so he thought the would bo better  oif with me than at a hospital," said  the little old ..woman, clicking hei  needles over a pair of long worsted  stockings, which sho was busily knitting���������for him, perhaps. "I'm sure he  wouldn't mind your asking questions,  and I should be only too pleased to answer 'em, for theiv's. nothing In his  whole life that I'm -..ot proud to talk  njbout."  So then I did a������k questions, timidly  at flrst, eagerly as I went on. And she  answered with evident delight.  Why, Mr. Bourke was the great Mr.  Bourke. How extraordinary that those  words should bring no light of -comprehension to my eyes! Where had I  lived that I hadn't heard of him?  Didn't I read the papers?: Oh, I hadn't  been allowed to ren.i them! That was  quite a different thing. Some people  /were so particular with young girls;  and quite right, too. no doubt. But as  for Mr. Bourke-*-well, to begin at: the  beginning. It /was just like a storybook.  : He'd been a poor boy, without friends  or money. He'd se: 1 newspapers and  run errands in shops. Every penny he  could save he sper* in buying books.  He'had taught *him-*elf to read, and he  had gone to a night-school. There he  attracted the notice of the -teachers,  one otwhom got hiin apprenticed to a  Arm of, engineers. ,He was .eighteen by  that time, and he be:; an to send articles  to a London paper, which were published,/and brought the author great  praise. /The editor found out who he  was. and, takln__^_a ,?reat fancy to the  wonderful boy, soni him to Oxford, as  a non-collegiate.  That was a hard I" fe, so Mrs. Jennett  had heard���������to be :���������    ^ng a lot of more  fortunate young m   i, who had plenty  of money-and  fun,  outsider.  -; However  many   honors,   ami  books on Social ism  -. at'aJl, it would, not be a man of 1m-  I por tan ce.  So Lady'Feo Rjngwood was a disciplu  of John Bourke, the "man of the people!" I could Imagine nothing mom  Incongruous than: that she should advertise herself as a "Socialist."  She was a young "widow, the daughter of an impecunious earl. The middle-aged city knight vvhom she had  married when she was eighteen hnd  considerately died three yea-rs:. later,  leaving his fortune all to her. She was  now flve-and-twenty, with a beautiful  house in Park lane, and more money  than she could'well know what to do  with. I had met her so often during  :ny butterlly.' days' that it seemed  ���������strange I had never mot the man she  apparently delighted to honor. But,  then, those butterfly days had been so  few; aud Mrs. Jennett declared that  her hero went as seldom as possible  into society.  Somehow, 1 did not like to think ot  i^ady Feo Kingwood as a friend of  John Bourke's; und the sight of her  portrait in his study brought me so  .early into touch with old times that  1 felt vaguely disturbed. I had dlsap-  ueared from Lady Feo's set for ever;  "ind'.I did not relish ��������� the thought of  being discovered, the miserable secret  of my Easel street connections rooted  up. perhaps, and .'discussed as a spicy  bit of scandal in drawing-rooms.  While I lay with the photograph in  my hand, there was a ring at the doorbell and a light tapping of.the knocker.  "That's Mr. Bourke, I'm sure, come  to enquire how you are!" exclaimed  Mrs. Jennett,*-'jumping - up from her  chair. "He won't use his key and walk  in, because he says the house is yours  and mine, not his at ull for the present.  I'll just run and let liim in myself."  Two minutes later and she was back  again, -peeping.thi'i.'...'i/h a. crack of the  door. "It was Mr. iiourke," she announced. "He's delighted to hear that  you're downstairs, feeling better; and  he'.d be glad ta see. you for a few moments if you are.qMlte up to iit.: But  you are not to say/'Yes'" otherwise; for  he will come back to-morrow."  "Please:tell him/1 shall be pleased to  see.him," I replied,with an attempt a?  Indifference of t-bne* but in reality 1  was curiously, exclred. Mrs. Jennett  disappeared; 'and -when.

I remember noth-'\  ins more, ..until I awoke dn the morning:  At flrst I thought that I*was quite  well again, but I soon found out my  mistake. I had taken a feverish cold,  and though I tried to get up, I was or-  dered back to bed by Mrs. Jennatt. My  head ached so dully and my- brain'felt  so/weary! that' I had not the energy to  oppose her, or even the desire .to ask  questions.: A doctor was called In, and  afterwards sent medicine, which I reluctantly swallowed. For. three days  and nights I lay ln bed, and sometimes  I think I;*must have boen slightly delirious, for I heard myself saying words  over which my mind had no control,  arid I saw7 Mrs. Jennett's -.; face.j as  through a mist, regarding me oddly.  But at last the burning heat in my  veins and the throbbing in my temples  died away. I felt strangely peaceful,  though very* weak, and Mrs. Jennett  sold.that. If I liked, I might be dressed  in a wrapper and lie on the d������ik-a__alr  in ^Ir. BpurKe's study.  In my palmiest days I had possessed  nothing more heautlnil, and I experienced a very curious sensation in wondering if he had used his own taste ln  tho selection, troubling himself so  much for me.  .On the deck-chair In the study,where  I had awoke to a new world the other  night,'were'three or four ruffled Bilk  cushions of pretty pale tints, which I  was sure had not been there betore.  But this time Mrs. Jennett was the soul  of discretion, if there we're a secret  .whlch.she might have, betrayed. She  merely pointed to a great bunch of  white lilac In-a vase on the table, saying:  '���������Those are foriyou, my dear. From  ���������from* Mr. Bourke and me."  Then, before I could ���������* answer, she had  begun bustling about the room, drawing down the blinds, so that the light  did not come into my* eyes as I reclined  on/the big/chair, and asking me what  books I, would, like, to, have from, the  'shelves.

"I should  like to see the picture!" I said, rather  wistfully, at last feeling even more  Insignificant and vaguely homesick  than I had felt before the story began.  Mrs. Jennett rose and went to the  mantelpiece,' returning in a moment  with a framed photograph In her hand.

A Scottish member of Parliament, la  an address to his constituents, assured  his hearers that he ' was not fan:/idle  member of the House; and that during  the last two years he: had put no les������  than one hundred and eighty-two questions to the speaker, and .the member*  of the government;/ "Whatjan-ignorant  auld beggar ye must be!"'cried'a; voice  fromthe crowd.  The revivalist, "Sam" Jonee, was onc������  taking women to task .for spending  more/time in prinking tlian*in praying.

A CORRESPONDENT who has been  visiting - Sh.-kespeare's town,  writes that Miss Marie Corelli  figures by no mean.; among the least  of the local attractions at, Stratford-  on-Avon. She has quite a large establishment," and: her carriage and coachmen are much ob*x*rved when she  drives, about. "The townspeople do not  seem to take her very seriously. She  is talked of as bei* .* "queer;" a literary person; whose7 wi. ys are naturally a  little unconventlona!. During the early  summer It appears that a. strolling  company'of coined :-_ns settleddown at  StFatford'Tor-"sevem.l~we'eks: -Their-  theater./'.was, a big: tent, and/ their ..repertory was a medley of tragedy,  comedy,/and vaudeville. / Prices varied  from sixpence to a" shilling, though  after nine o'clock a* sixpence gave you  a choice of seats. To the right of the  main entrance a place had been fenced  In and hung.:with draperies and set  apart as Miss Corelll's box. She was a ( . .  regular patron, and- seemed to enjoy | _ ������PP������nenl  the performances very, much, fre- - ���������-  quently showing her approval by applause. It was not surprising to find  that her books were little known locally, although fabulous stories of their  sales/and her great: profits vvere current.' When Miss Corelli made her  home In Stratford-on-Avon, she was  then at work on The -Master Christian,  published: last year. To her vexation,  she found that the house next to hen  Was occupied ns a private school. It  appears that at' a ct-italn hour In' the  day, when she was most engrossed In  her work, the classes would be up tot  calisthenics, and the disturbance became .very annoying to Miss Corelli.  She wrote to the schoolmistress,/and  informing her that she was at work on  a masterpiece of literature, which she  hoped to. give to the world In a few  months, requested her to change th������  distracting hour of noisy exercise to  one that would be more convenient, for  her./ Miss Corelli received In effect th*  following reply by return: "Dear  Madam,���������I beg to remind you that my  school was here before you made your  home In this town, and that \t cannot  change the hour of the exercises as you  suggest, not even t.. further the important work upon v.-hich you are engaged.

TncKsDAY, August 14, 1902.  THE FATHERS  OF THE SENATE.  CEREMONY  Today but* four of Llio Senators  appointed at Confederation nre in tlie  land of the living. These gentlemen  are Senators Miller. Wnrk, Dickey,  and Ai'inand���������all from the Maritime  provinces, the home of the long-lived  and the healthy. Tlie Halifax Herald,  speaking of Senator Miller, says that  gentleman is the only appointee under  the Queen's proclamation of 1SC7  ���������' whose vigor of mind and body have  ' been such as to enable hiin to take iii  leadirg part in llie deliberations of  that body throughout tne whole of  that long period."  ���������'Though   sometimes   not   counled  among  tiie Fathers of Confederation,  it is well known to those intimate with  tlie events lending  up to and immediately connected  with the union of the  provinces that Senator Miller's services  at Lhat time  were of  very great value  in helping to bring nlionfc the inauguration of   un   united   British America;  ' and whether technically he should be  numbered    among     the    Fathers   of  Confederation   or   not,   i'or very real  reasons he should be so numbered.   To  give any account of   Senator Miller's  public  services   from    1SC7     to     the  present time would  be something tlie  same   as   giving a   summary   of   tlie  parliamentary history of the Dominion:  for the present it. must suffice to say  llnit   from   tlie great debates of   the  early days ami onward, including those  on the admission of 'British Columbia,  the   inauguration   of    tlie    National  Policy, tlie construction of  the Canadian   Pacific railway,   down    to   the  exposure and defeat of the attempted  Yukon   steal, and  the vigorous treat-  '    'iiTeiit^f"^tiU~i"iiorei^i'e"ce"nt=_niiittei*sr  "   Senator Miller has throughout all the  years of the Dominion  brought to the  services of tliecoutitry a large capacity  and    willingness    for   work,   and    a  power in debate that lias given him a  leading position  in   parliamentaiy life  , and Ixien of great public value.'-  Senator "Wnrk is US years of age,  Senator Dickey is !X), and Senator  Armand "2.

Solemn and Magnificent���������Lon  don Streets Crowded to see  Royal Pageant. ��������� Nothing  Mars the Arrangements.  K ing Edward and Queen Alexandra  were crowned iu Westminster Abbey  ���������shortly afternoon Saturday. Though  the ceremony was bereft of the elaborateness, and pageantry originally  intended, it lacked little in tlio way of  spectacular perfection. Tlie whole  cerpiiioni.-il was of a magnificently  deeoi*'.itcd character and presented a  constantly changing p.inorania.around  the two central figures enthroned in  their robes of velvet, ermine and cloth  of gold, amidst the distinguished  assemblage of participants, the fulfilment of whose various roles required  constant movement. Each stage of  the ceremony, with its old world  usages, furnished its quota of interest,  while the interior of the noble church,  filled as it was with officials in various  capacity, with princes, diplomats,  officers in gold laced uniforms, with  heralds, pursuivants and officers of  state in medieval costumes, with peers  and peeresses in rich robes with  Oriental potentates in many hued  raiment, with men of all types and all  shades of complexion from distant  points of tho new crowned monarch's  Empire, with its dazzling display of  jewels and wealth of color, presented  a picture which in its combined  brilliancy and its distinction has  seldom been excelled.  As   the   hour  appointed    lor    the  departure   of   the   Royal    procession  approached,   the   excitement   -about  Buckingham Palace was most marked.  Punctual  to" the time the advance  guard of the Royal   cavalcade   issued  rrom the archway, the horses   of   the  troopers curvetting nervously as they  faced the wall of humanity lhatcheered  their coining. Shortly afterwards came  the Prince and Princess of Wales' procession    and    finally    within    ������.   feiv-l  minutes Their   Majesties   state   couch  appeared at the gateway and the King  and Queensniiled and bowed in response  to  the   mighty   roar  of   cheers   that  dwarfed all  previous welcomes.     The  scene in the vicinity  was. remarkable.  On the roof of the Palace were perched  a number of fashionable dressed ladies  members of (.he household,   and   their  cheers, with   the   fluttering   of   their  'handkerchiefs as the King and  Queen  entered   tlie  Royal  coach   gave    the  signal for the deafening plaudits of the  populace.which greeted Their Majesties  as tbey emerged from the gates.  Tlie ovation was taken up by the  crowds which thronged the Mall, and  was repeatedly acknowledged by the  _P_c_l'__ipants of tbe state coach  LEGAL  .  E MA STRK ,t SCOTT.

The principal  location was made on Mission creek,  about six miles buck from the lake,  wheie he staked over five thousand  acres of coal lands. The other location  was made on Ti out creek, two and 11  half miles fiom the lake and consisted  of twelve hundred and eighty acres.  There is an eight, foot seam on the  Trout cieek property, samples from  which have been assayed by A. L,.  "McKillop. with very sntisfactojy  res.ilts. Mr. McKillop states that tlie  coal is first class for steam and domestic  purposes.  The Ashnola Smelter Co. will commence development work on their new-  properties at an early date. Mr. Young  is confident that they will be shipping  coal.into Nelson by January  1st. 11X13.  It was a continued triumph and  teached its climax ou the arrival at the  Abbey, where there was a scene of  unparalleled enthusiasm, which did  not cease until Their Majesties disappeared in the Annex,  An accident to Lord Pelhani-Ulinton,  one of the grooms in  waiting,  created  considerable  excitement in the  Mail.  Ina closed carriage   he   was  passing  York   Steps,   when   his    conveyance  collided with  another  Royal  carriage  going at high   speed   in   an  opposite  direction.

Lord Kitchener,  Admiral  Seymour  and   General   Gazelle,    as    they   sn.t  together in the procession, came in for  much attention, but all seemed to  pay  little attention to the people along the  route. Lord Kitchener, in resplendent  full dress  uniform  of a general, also  looked unfamiliar, nnd  many   present  did not recognize   him.   The   Indians  were undoubtedly the most picturesque  feature of   the   procession,   while the  sate coach of the KinR, drawn by tl o  fat  and   Hanovarian     horses,   which  tifctircil   in   all   of    the    late    Queen  Victoria   processions,     seemed   much  more like a fairy land  than   unusual.

'1 A LAND OF  NO STRIKES  Effect of New Zealand's Compulsory Arbitration Law���������The*  Toronto Globe Prefers it to  Shotgun Methods.  The New Zealand compulsory arbitration law is criticized because it is  not perfect. Any discussion of the  law which leu\es out of view the  existing conditions will he useless.  The condition from whicli escape is  sought is one of almost constant  industrial warfare. .lust when business and industry are at their most  flourishing stage disputes spring up  between employer and employed, and  in a day the whole machinery of  production is thrown out of gear, and  enormous losses are entailed on  master and man. In not a few cases  these -conilicts are founded on the  veriest trifles, and usually no matter  who wins there is no real gain to  anybody. It is not too much to say  that even when the workmen win  higher-wages by n prolonged struggle  it takes years for the increases to  make up the losses sustained during  the. progress of tbe strike. Oue calling  after another is subjected to these  upheavals; and periods of" prosperity,  when every sail should be set to catch  the' favoring breeze, are those in  which the strike and lockout are most  numerous and most persistent.  Whatever demerits the New Zealand  compulsory arbitration act mny have,  it certainly has the  merit of putting  "the country in  the unique position of  - having  had no strike in"seven years.  , , Can-any other industrial community  in the world say as much?   It is urged  ,   that   this    has * been    accomplished  during a prosperous time, when wages  ���������were steadily increasing. ' That, however, is the very time that experience  tells us to look out for nunierou**i labor  disputes iu countries which have not  adopted New Zealand's radical methods  of  dealing  with   an   intolerable evil.  The question is'not whether there are  defects in the law, but whether these  ��������� defects- are   not   venial  as compared  '."-'���������with tha pernicious'evils for which, the  **I^T^*i?*r*^ * -'>���������   . .--.-r"~    -'        *���������*��������� -  .������������������ law is put. forward tis a remedy.  The'"law. is an experiment, but it.is  an experiment' which has eudured the  ."  test of ��������� seven   years, and   has .tt least  ��������� done   what   its  advocates   promised,  .* namely,   prevented    strikes.     If    ic  produses other effects .which were not  "anticipated- these   may  be met.   The  ' '- law has been altered from time to  ' time, as ei*ery new law has to be, to  . meet unexpected developments. As  an experiment other countries would  be well advised to adopt it, cautiously  and even'- tentatively. There are  certain.semi,public services, such as  the running of railways, which, when  interrupted entail widespread inconvenience* an* loss. The relations  between men engaged in such services  ���������" and*their employers seem" well"suite"d  tor regulation in the manner we are  considering, and if it is found to work  well in that branch of labor it could  be gradually extended.  It is to be feared that some of those  . -who. express their hostility to the  proposal - have not studied it very  closely. : It is stated, for example, that-  the farmers of New Zealand ' will  oppose its extension to agriculture,  ' because if tho scale of remuneration in  ��������� farm work were increased they would  be unable to meet the competition of  ���������* their rivals in Argentina and elsewhere. "The application for increased  wages has to be supported by evidence  and the employers are- quite at liberty  to meet or disprove the evidence  adduced by their employees. On the  case presented the court decides, and  pfoip Jias beep' found a more rational  and more civilised way of settling  such questions of fact and inference  that the shotguns with which they  are now being settled in ' the coal  regions of Pennsylvania.  most gratifying results.

As n  matter of fact, nature is no niggard in  her deposits of the precious metals,  and these deposits often exist in  duplicate and even triplicate wheie  the claim owner expects to find  nothing more than a single ledge, the  single vein. Instances are nor. uncommon where the value of a mine  has 'been more 'than doubled by the  following of a stringer into a new ore  body in virgin ground; by breaking  tlirough what was supposed to be one  ot the walls.of a known deposit into a'  blind vein, the*presence of which was  not even indicated at' the grass mot.**.*  The Lament ot the Adult.

QUEEN ELIZABETH of England  was not a thoroughgoing sphis-  .'ter, for she.had so. little prejudice against the practlce\.of smoking  that she permitted Sir "Walter Raleigh  his pipe in the royal presence. She was  sufficiently a woman, however, to twit  him openly.pn his devotion to ihe weed,  and it was.on one. oi these occasions���������  or so/'the, author of "The Soverane  Herbe" shrewdly, surmises���������that the  knight replied:   -    '    ��������� ��������� *    *  "I can" assure Tour Majesty that I  have so well experienced ithe nature of  It that I can tell even the weight of the  smoke In any quantity I consume."    "���������  "I doubt it-much, Sir Walter," replied  Elizabeth, holding it-was impossible to  weigh smoke, and mayhap scenting" a  joke, "and I will wager you twenty  gold angels that you do'not solve my  doubt." '_i  Gallantly accepting the wager, Raleigh filled his pipe with a weighed  quantity of tobacco, smoked it out, and  then, weighing the resultant ashes, announced the weight he had smoked  away.- . ,   ���������  - "Your Majesty cannot deny that the  difference has disappeared in smoke."  "Truly, I cannot," answered the  Queen. . Ordering 'the wager to .be paid,  she turned *to the courtiers around her  and said: ".Many alchemists have I  heard 'of "who turned gold into smoke,  but Raleigh Is the Hrst who has turned  smoke into gold,"  Musical M.D.'s of the Future.

It would be a large company of  Germans,   Indeed,' among   whom   one  -would fall to select h'.m Instinctively aa  the  leader.    A first impression,  therefore,   may   thus  be  summed   up:   The  Kaiser  la less  a great  king  than   one  inaj; Imagined, and more a great man.  The  longer  one  remains  in   Germany,  ������nd the more h'e learns of "William and  tiia -extraordinary activities, the deeper  stow* this Impression.   XVe Americans  hive  never  quite   overcome  our   first  prejudices against the Knlsar, bred during the early days of his reign, when  the mantle of royalty���������and the Hohen-  ���������ollern mantle at that���������was new to his  --.boulders, and he said and did strange  things; but in Europe���������where they have  grown accustomed to his vagaries, now,  indeed, much less pronounced in their  manifestations,    and    have    get   them  ���������lown   as   the   expressions  of  a.  strong  nnd  original  individuality���������the  Kaiser  occupies & place of high and genuine  ���������.������������������.teem. An American who remains long  in Germany feels this change ln sentl-  ri'ent  strongly,  and,  when  the Kaiser  ���������pisses, he raises his hat with' all the  ��������� ���������thers, not merely beo.-.use thl������ Is royalty,  but  because it  is character and  strength of purpose."  As might be expected, the Kaiser, Is  most popular in his capital:  "One, hearing a commotion on. TJnter  den Linden, with a flash of -white  plumes In the distance, and the swift  : -idaiter of hoofs, may -well crowd up to  see,' .A pair of splendid horses, traveling like the wind, two richly uniformed _men on the bo>:. iind the Kaiser,  the Kafserln, and am'.l.er lady in the  open carriage behind.

A recently published story of the lato  Lord Morris, Chief Justice of Ireland,  Illustrates his scorn of red tape and  petty details. A question had arisen as  to the cost of heating the Irish law  courts, and a consequential treasury official was sent over from London to  Dublin on purpose to Investigate the  matter. When he introduced, himself  and explained his errand, Lord Morris  smiled with suspicious hlandneas and  etld*. "Certainly, I -will put you in com-  -tnunieatloQ with the person immediately In charge of that department.", Then  ha sent out a messenger, and presently  there entered an old charwoman. Lord  Morris arose and left the room, saying  as he did so: "Mary, here Is the young  man to see about tlie coal."  father Taylor, the sailors' friend, was  a man who at all times spoke with an  engaging frankness, which sometimes  became, m'oiv V'rusqu'e than was desirable. A'banker from the West End of  Boston once visited Father Taylor's  church during a fervid revival, and  ���������varied the usual character of the meeting by a rather pompous address. Its  purport -was that the merchant princes  of Boston were a very beneficent set of  men, whose wealth and enterprise gave  employment to thousands of sailors,  and that It was, above all. the duty of  seamen to show their gratitude to the  merchants.7 At the close of his speech  the 'banker was somewhat taken aback  when Father Taylor rose and asked,  simply: "Is there any other sinner  fromup-town who would like to say a  word?"  Not long ago a W'-stern Kansas psll-  tician was asked by his wife to lay  aside politics long enough one clay to  dig the potatoes In the garden. He consented, and, after digging for a few  minutes, went Into;the house and said  he had found a coin. He washed lt  off, and It proved to he a silver quarter. He put It In his jeans and went  back to work.; Presently,he went to the  house again and said he had found another coin. He washed the dirt off of  it, and this time it was a silver half-  dollar^ He put It In his jeans. VI have  ���������worked pretty hard," said he to his'  wife;"I guess I'll take a short nap."

A Chinese manuscript lately discovered in the Paris library proves the  startling fact that anaesthetics were  used ln China seventeen hundred years  ago. A certain concoction, it states,  whs given by the doctors betore .performing'.'tin operation, which rendered  the patient unconscious. The anaesthetic was a simple preparation of  hemp.  The translation of the Bible from  ancient to modern Greek, against which  students ln the Grecian capital have  been rioting, and coming into fatal conflicts with troops, was; ordered by  Queen Olga, because she found so  many Greeks could not read the language of their classic ancestors. The  students oppose the translation on the  ground that it would be desecration to  put the Bible into Greek as It is now  spoken. ���������  Four hundred and ten thousand Immigrants landed on the shores of the  United States last year.

Tn the Ma.rquls of Lome's "Life ol  Queen Victoria there is 11 chapter on  tho coronation now unite Interesting ln view of the mueh-dlscus-.scHl  ceremony which la to take placo  in London In June. The former  Governor-General's description ot the  pagonnt la too impressionistic to bo  very effective, but the following account of the ceremony, given, by Lady  Wllhelmlna Stanhope, one of the train-  bearers of the C ,'een. who later becanw  the Duchess of Cleveland, Is very  amusing.   She   vrltes:  The Quo-pi* ->okea very well and was  perfectly composed, fihe wore a circlet of splendid diamonds, and was  dressed In gold tissue, over which was  fastened a crimson velvet mantle, bordered with gold lace, and lined with  ermine, with a long ermine capo, which  very ponderous append-ago we were to  support. ... We were all dressed  alike, In white and silver. The effect  was not, 1 think, brilliant enough ln so  dax'/llug -'in assembly, and our little  tnai..:*i were serious annoyances, for it  was impossible to avoid treading upon  them. We ought never to have had  them: and there certainly should have  been some previous rehearsing, for we  carried the Queen's train very jerkily  and badly, never keeping step properly, and it must have heen very dilllcult  for her to walk, as she did, evenly and  steadily, and with much grace and dignity, the whole length of the Abbey.  The Abbey Itself was a beautiful  coup d'oell. as -we'.marched up *amld  thunders of . applause and handkerchiefs and scarfs waving everywhere.  The Queen ack. wledged her reception very graciously. I think her heart  fluttered a little as we reached; thc  throne; at least, the color mounted to  her cheeks, brow, and even neck, and  her -breath came quickly. However,  the slight emotion she showed was  very transient, and she stood perfectly motionless while the archbishop, in  almost inaudible voice, proclaimed her  our undoubted sovereign and liege  lady.  ii  Hang Trouble on a Chair.  LAUG-H and grow fat" is a saying as old as the hills. It  has long been an accepted fact  that humor Is a piomoter of digestion  and, merry words* the;deadliest foes of  disease. A doctor named Kennedy  writes an interesting article on the  value of laughter, in Which he shows  It is not only a remedial agent, but Is  nlso a valuable p* --ventlve against a  host of diseases. '1 ,ie physical effects  of laughter are thu.'. put down by Dr.  Kennedy: Laughter increases the blood  circulation. It enlarges the heart. It  oxpands the lungs. It jiggers the diaphragm. It promotes the dloculatlon  of the spleen. In ou.erwords, laughter  ������������������tlTS up the vital regions of the body,  gives them healthful exercise, and  produces a mental exhilaration which  nets upon the system much as a brisk  walk In a crisp atri.osphere does upon  the   appetite. As   strong   allies      to  laughter. , Dr. Kennedy , gives the following directions for mental peace Lot  mind: Beware of theologians who have  no 'sense* of. mirth; they, are not altogether human.

So  apparent this   become  of   late   that  the   railroad   authorities   of   Belgium  have been seriously considering the advisability of Introducing cars In which  only women shall be allowed lo travel.  What has particularly served  to brine  the  matter' before  the  ollicials'  notice  Is   an   incident   that   happened   a   few  weeks since, when a, young woman entered one i>f the carriages on the Southern P.allroad reserved for ladles, and in  a   few   minutes   after   the     train   had  started   from   Brussels   lit   a   cigarette  and began to smoke it. * Whereupon tha  other  women   in   the compartment became   very   indignant,   threatening   to  complain to the guard  as soon as thn  train stopped.   "I am In a carriage reserved for ladles," observed the smoker,   blandly,  "and   I  am   not  aware   of  any  law   which   prohibits   ladles   from  smoking."   When the train stopped, the  guard was Informed ot the proceedings,  but was loath to Interfere, and the result was that when the woman smoker  arrived   at   her   destination,   she   consulted  a lawyer,   who  has   now hy  an  action   in   court   raised   the   Interesting  question: Should railroad companies be  compelled to provide separate smoking  cars   for  women   who  wish   to  smoke  while they are traveling?    Some of the  companies,   however,   appear   to   have  taken time by the forelock, for it Is understood   that  arrangements  have    already been made 0.1 some of the T'el-  gian railroads to p. nvldc. smoking compartments  exclusively  for women   addicted to the use of tobacco.  II Is  rather  amu.*-ing   to  watch  changes   in   society   slang;   for   the  "best" society has its own  special  vulgarities, which change from decade  to   decade���������even   from   year   to   year.  Lady   Blesslngton,   If   she   were   reincarnated and suddenly projected into a.  woman's afternoon chatter at a smart  club,would  think she had missed  her  country, observes a.n English exchange.  A few  years  ago  lt  was   lhe  mode   10  scatter  Gallicisms   freely   Into conversation.     But   the   French   craze      has  passed, and   even such  an old servant  as   "chic"   Is   n**ver   heard,   nnd   rarely  seen  but ln   the fashion "articles.    Today's  slang���������In   the  "best"  circles    of  Kngland���������*ha3    probably    reached    the  lowest depth  of fatuous  vulgarity.   Its  keynote" Is   abbreviation;    What     are  "undies?"    Well,  they  are  the  things  that  a  woman   puts  on   first  In      tha  morning  and   takes  off  last   at   night,  when   she   gets   Into   her     "nighties."  '"Tlzzy-wlz/.y"     Is     another       favorite  Masonic   word    among   those    In    tha  social know.   It corresponds to the 'bus  conductor's   "little   bit ...'.of    all-right."  And  if you  want to go a! step further  In compliment, you  may describe your  riew frock���������if you a e a woman In the  "best"   set���������as   Vqulte   too  deevle    for  words."

The.burst of applause In the Abbey  when the crown.was placed on her  head, and the sight of all the peers and  peeresses, crowning themselves at. the  same moment, Was really most Impressive, and in the midst of the cheering  Hand'el's magnificent anthem, "The  Queen Shall Rejoice!" thundered in.  After this the Queen was enthroned,  and we took up our station; on the  steps of/the throne during the homage,  and amused ourselves with watching  Lord Surrey, the treasurer" of the  household, dispensing medals in . the  midst of a most desperate scramble,  and nearly torn in pieces in the universal excitement. , The pages were particularly active, and some of them collected ten or twelve medals apiece.  I nv little of the homage. The Duke  of Wellington was prodigiously  cheered. Lord Rolle fell down, and  was carried away by two strong peers.  '. . . After the homage, we returned  with the Queen to the chapel, where  her mantle���������now a purple one���������was  fastened on, and we waited for three-  .otHu-ters of an hour for the procession  to form in the same manner as on entering the: Abbey.  The Queen complained of a headache from having the crown very ceremoniously knocked by most of tho  peers**���������one actually clutched bold of It;  but she said she had guarded herself  from any accident.or misadventure by  having it made to fit her head tightly.  She had, besides, to bear the heavy orb  and sceptre across the Abbey; , but  when she re-achedthe robing-room, she  disembarrassed herself of them, unclasped her mantle, took oft her crown,  and having got rid of all her royalty,  eat down on the sofa and amused herself. We. too,'��������� were allowed to sit down  for the first time.  But her day of fatigue was not yet  over, for she had to entertain one hundred persons at dinner inthe pi .ace.  The Duke of .Wellington had a great  ball at Apsley House, two thousand  persons having been invited, the cabinet ministers gave state dinners.

Acting on the supposition  that a mental review Would lead him  to a correct conclusion, she said: "Now,  go away back"���������; Unconsciously from  the entire class there came a responsive  murmur: "And sit down."

A curate, lt is said, on applying to  His Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury when Bishop of London, to be  licensed, was ordered to read some  verses of Scripture, as a test of his capacity for conducting public ..worship.  When he had done, so, in fear and  trembling, the Bishop declared that he  was "Not loud enough."."But," pleaded  the poor curate, "a lady in church only  yesterday told me I could be heard  most plainly all over it." "Ah!" exclaimed the Bishop,, "you are engaged."  The curate blushlngly owned the soft  impeachment; His Grace darkly smiled  and then solemnly said, ."Now listen to  me, young man.

In private lite Lotta is Miss .Charlotte Craibtree, a inost charming an<l  dignified lady of petite figure and middle age. She has lived in retirement  for nearly twenty yenrs. She left the-  >tago at the height of her, popularity  for reasons that have never been definitely stated. She had always . been  singularly successful, so success-till that  when she -quitted active life lt was  said that she was worth mearly a million dollars.  Lotta was born ln San Francisco  amid very humble surroundings,., and.  long before she wn������ out of short  clothes had made her appearance as a  banjo, player in the Sun ! FrtunclscO'  music halls. She could play so woll,  and sing so well, and tell stories so*  well, that she became am Innocent favorite with the rough element 'before  which she appeared, and It is of record that the utmost decorum always'  prevailed when she wiuon the stage.  Her singular Influence over rough  men was exemplified by am incident  that occurred when she wnsabout seventeen. In charge of her mother, she  was making a tour of the Nevada mining camps. She landed at Hamilton,  one of the roughest camps In the Territory. An expectant crowd; of particularly rough, miners ' was at the*  tavern to meet her when the, stage-  drove up. The great theatrical, event  had been announced somewhat In advance, antl the miners had looked for- '  ward with boundless joy to .the appearance of the gay soubrette1 who was  coming to entertain them.  When there alighted from the stage  a spare, elderly lady, who "was Mrs.  Crahtree, and a little girl in short  frocks, who was Miss Crabtree, ��������� the  disappointment was loudly and ' vociferously! expressed. However, any  showL was better than none, "and that  evening the; miners fairly packed the  place where the show was to take  place. Two billiard tables had been  pushed together to niake a stage, ao.ur-  taln being dropped between for purposes of retirement.! At the hour set  for the opening there stepped from,behind this curtain, on to the; front billiard table, a demure little creature  with skirts reaching to, the knees,7 anei .  carrying a banjo slung negligently  over her shoulders.  The audience was very cold. In less  than half an hour,: however, Lotta Had  every mother's son of them ln a state  of high-wrought,enthusiasm.  She sang to them, danced for them,  and cold them funny stories with .tireless energy, and they encored her again  and agadn*. Finally Vine man in' the  audience, carried entirely away by enthusiasm, came down to the front witn  a whoop, and, throwing something tn  the stage, cried out:  "There; you can have my pile!" .  The example was contagious. In less  than a minute, every man in the place  was scrambling eagerly forward to divest himself of riches ln order to lay  them at Lotta's feet.  The result of that-.night's work wns  the most profitable in the history of  Miss Lotta's career on the stage, either  in Nevada or anywhere else.  Golf Girl Sees a Ball Game.

"Oh, yes,"  saild the minister, "they often pray for  rain." "And does their God send it  when they pray for it?" asked the  ���������earl. "Yes, sometimes their prayers  are answered, and sometimes they are  not." "All the same like Chinese joss,  hey?" said the earl* with a grin and a  -chuckle.  General Balllngton Booth of the Volunteers of America, tells a story of a  prayer-meeting held ln New York on  the East Side during the recent mayoralty campaign. In the midst of a  prayer, he relates, one pious brother  said: "Oh, Lord, we pray Thee that  ���������the Democratic party may hang together in the coming election." "Amen, _  answer prayer, Lord," put ln a Republican who was near. "But I do not  mean lt as the Republican brother  . means It, Lord.

Lord Kelvin once paid a visit with a  i friend to some well-known electrical  works.

Entirely unaware of,his visitor's identity, he minutely explained the details of the plant  and machinery, and lectured him In his  role of , layman quite professionally.  iLord Kelvin's friend was on the point  of interrupting several .times, but an  amused signal from the great master  of electricity kept him silent. When  ���������the tour of Inspection was complete.  Lord Kelvin quietly turned to the foreman and asked: "What, .then, is electricity?"

A certain congressman who had Instructed his. butler to say to all undesirable callers that he was in the bath  ���������and could not be seen, was recently  visited by a constituent with a grievance .to exploit.

But as lt ia not unusual  to expect something of the sort  at this season of the year, we may  very well stand up and look at the  prospect of sport which any seasonable  weather of the kind may bring us.  There,is'sliding for Instance.' It you  don't happen to possess a pair of  skates, or to own a friend who will lend  you a pair. Nature Is determined that  you shall not lose all chance of risking  your neck, just because you are. lacking the usual outfit.  Of course for really superior slides  you ought to put a little water down  overnight; but as you have probably  grown out of little frivolities of that  sort, you can confidently rely on your  next door neighbor's little boy doing  what Is necessary ln the matter.  Doubtless you will not leave your house  in the morning with any Idea ot becoming actively engaged as a display  slider. It is not until you find one ot  your feet slowly but surely creeping  upwards to the sky, as the song says,  that it will occur to you to throw up  your hands and drop Into the conventional attitude as a measure of self-  protection. You will probably be encouraged in this course by noticing that  a small but enthusiastic knot of bystanders Is endeavoring to raise a cheer  for your benefit. The next moment the  programme comes off with a loud bang  and you scramble to your feet, and address yourself loudly to nobody In particular In a way that makes the  thoughtful observer trustfully hope  that the recording angel wasn't looking  your' way at the moment.  It Is commonly understood that the  gentler' sex are denied the relief that  is afforded to mere man by the possession of an elastic vocabulary. But a  casual slide that Is spread out on the  pavement is perfectly catholic In Its  tastes, and Is open to receive all coiners. The slide makes no Invidious distinctions as. to age or sex. Anybody  with a limb to bieak is warmly welcome. Itseems a little hard, however,  that when an accident of this kind does  take place by the unexpected co-operation of a member of tho fair sex, the  unhappy victim is almost invariably a  lady who should be old enough to know  better. The young and flighty damsei"-  is-ho could fall on an extemporaneous slide and make quite an elabor-  Ue and picturesque display of the  business, are usually, most-successful  In avoiding accidents of the kind ;  while, on the other hand, elderly ladles  will practically make a.bee-line for the  trouble and then shower a liberal perspective of knitted wool and-red flannel  on  the unsympathetic spectator.  The part that snow plays In our lives-  varies according to circumstances. _ As  the poet said, distance lends enchantment to the view. And when you arc  ^looking at the snow-clad landscape  over the top of something cheerful and  .hot ip a. large glass, there Is doubtless a good deal to bi said for the poetic side of beautiful onow. At the same  lime, I am not-one who believes in coddling when the snow Is on the ground.  I am glad to say I can enjoy as well as  anyone a brisk walk along "the open  country when the snow is lying thickly  around; and I think .there are few  moments when one feels.more keenly  than at such times what-a glorious  lark It Is to he alive. The tingling of  the blood as It ��������� c .mes through the  veins, Imparting a nealthy glow to the  cheek and all.the rest of the'detalls, as  per patent medicine advertisement,' are  all benefits of the snow that I keenly  recognize and cordially appreciate. But  what does me all up, so to speak, is to  have a small boy come up behind ano  sock me unawares in the neck with a  half-melted snowball.  Of course, we are all young, and, after all, we can affoid to laugh at tiou-  ble of that kind. Usually, if I "am out  in a falr-to-medium suit of clothes, and  I find lhat snowballing is in the air, 1  endeavor to make for cover. But if the  worst comes to the worst, and I find  that my hat has been knocked off ami  my clothes are im������e or less blobbed  with melting patches of snow, I consider I have lost all the dignity I set out  with, and that 1 may as well start  throwing back.

IN the December number of "Harper's Magazine'.' there are some letters by R. L. Stevenson which have  not previously been published. They  contain, as lengthy, letters written by  R. L. S. always did' ontaln, sundry excellent remarks. We append a few excerpts:  "Beware of realism; It Is the devil;  lt is one of the means of art, and now  they make lt the end! And such Is the  farce of the age ln which a man lives  that we all, even those of us who most  detest it, sin by realism."  "In your nrt bow your head over  technique. Think of technique when  you rise and when you go to bed. Forget purposes ln the meanwhile; get to  love technical processes, to glory ln  technical successes; get to see the  world entirely through technical spectacles, to see it entirely ln terms of  what you can. Then, when you have  anything to say, the language will be  apt and copious."  "Cling to your youth. It is an artist's stock-in-trade. Don't give in that  you are ageing, and you won't age. See  tho good ln other people's work; It will  never be yours. See the bad in your  own, and don't cry about lt; it will be  there always. Try to use your faults;  at any rate, use your knowledge of  them."  "The sins ofthe most Innocent, If they  were exactly visited, would ruin them  to the doer. And if you know any man  who believes himself to be 'worthy of a  wife's love, a friend's affection, you  may rest assured he Is worthy of nothing but a kicking. We are not meant  to be good in this world, hut try to be,  and fall, and keep on trying, and when  we get a kick, to say 'Thank God!' and  when we get a buffet, to say 'Just so:  well hit!'

Washington tells an amus-  .ng story of an old colored preacher  who was endeavoring to explain to his  congregation how it was that the  Children of Israel passed over the Red  Sea safely, while the Egyptians, who  came after them, were drowned. The  old man said: "My brethren, it was  .his way: When the Israelites passed  iver, it was early ln the morning, while  it was cold, and the ice .was strong  enough so that they went over all  right; 'but when the Egyptians came  ilong it was in the middle of the day,  md tiie sun had thawed the. ice so  chat it gave way under them, and they  were drowned." At this, a young man  in the congregation, who had been  away to school and had come home,  rose and said: "I don't see how that  explanation can be right, parson. The  geography that I've been studying tells  us that ice - never iorins- under the  equator, and the Red Sea is nearly under the equator." 'There, now,'.' said  rse old preacher,-, "that's.all right., l's  jeen 'spectin' some of you smart Alecks?  .vould be aski.i' jt. t' some such fool  -luestlon.

He was instructed to  prepare a Hst of the distinguished lot  owners and to mention all the famous  dead who rested under the velvety  turf. Tho reporter was neither experienced nor careful. He went to the  office of the cemetery company, and,  being allowed access to the books,  copied such names as seemed worthy  of selection. In writing his notes the  young man mixed his lists, gave to the  distinguished dead the names ot thn  living lot owners, and made up his  list of the distinguished survivors rrom  his catalogue of the dead.

One of the moi-t whimsical fables,  about the Knickerbocker-settlement in  New Amsterdam, to which the descent  of President Roosevelt gives Interest,  concerns the acquisition of Manhattan  Island. The Dutchmen wanted to buy;  the Red Indian was not indisposed to  sell. So a "deal" was arranged. For  a specified amount of cash as much of  the island was to become the property  of thc Hollander as he could cover with  his nether garments. His name was  Ten Broeck (scottice, "ten breeks,"  anglice, "ten pairs of breeches"). But  of this the too confiding savage was  unaware. When Ten Broeck calmly  proceeded to disrobe himself, and to  spread his voluminous clothing on the  Island���������which he succeeded In covering-  MUIrely���������the look of mingled chagrin  md amazement on the chief's usually  impassive face musi have baffled description.

Wnun  called   to  account for  a  blunder ot one of his workmen, he explained as follows:  . "You see, things was built crooked ln  his world on purpose. There ain't  nothing that was arranged to go exactly right. You know better than I do,  doctor, that If we went sailing along  through life smooth and pleasant, like  drifting with the tide, we'd never  amount to nothing, now would we?"  "No."  "Very well, then; there's big troubles  and there's little troubles.

It's  always that way, Isn't It?"  "Yes."  ���������."You start out In lite believing that  you're going to have nearly perfect  bliss, and lo and behold! there's something every day In the year and nearly  every hour In the day to worry and  annoy you. Now, why is it, doctor?  Why is It?"  "What is your theory, Davis?"  "It's like this. Here we have, as the  books say, evidence of design. The  road of life was made rough, on purpose. And why? Doctor, you know  well enough. It was made so for our  good."  "I have heard something like that  before, I think," said the doctor.  "Of course! If things was always  right, life would be too easy. We need  discipline���������discipline of adversity. It  makes us strong to fight trouble. Out  patience Is tried, and so we know we  have patience and we get more patience and so forth. You know all  ahout it."  "And you think the man who chokes  a flue Is appointed to help the thing  along?"  "Certainly. Probahly he never quite  means to choke the flue. Some overpowering outside agency directs him.  makes him careless, throws him off his  guard. He plays 'his part in the great  drama of life. The man who chokes  the flue or fixes a pipe to leak Is working to make men better. You might  call him the Angel of Discipline."  "You think, then, that the whole matter is supernatural 7"  "Well, I don't know as I quite Call lt  that. It's Just the way things is fixed.  You try to toss a-book on the .table and  it falls on the floor. If you tried to  throw It on *the -floor .it -would have  fell on the table. You go .through your  house' In th'e dark and hold your arms  straight in front of you, and an open  door goes between your arms and you  hit your nose. .You could "hardly steer  straight enough ln broad daylight to  got the door into the space between  your arms, but you do it sure In the  dark.

No, I don't exactly say  supernatural; them's just the lines on  which the world is built. There ain't  no intention that things'll go straight."  "Then it's your thought that a hidden power compelled you to fix the pipe  in my bathroom so that it would leak?"  "Well, I don't want to shirk no responsibility or to .blame anybody else.  But'the fact Is I did my very best. I  thought it was all tight and snug. But  there had to he a hitch somewhere for  your uplifting towards higher things  and so I s'pose my attention was called  off, by some mysterious influence, from  a' weak place in the Joint, and you had  the benefit.

Hy that timo  they are strong, and If the binding be  properly done, there is no severe or  agonizing pain. Really the suffering is  slight, and by the time a girl attains  her full growth the pains cease altogether. Foreigners, she 'says, have an  exaggerated Idea of the suffering Incl-  1 dent to the making of small feet. But  | so Important Is It, from an aristocratic  standpoint, for a girl to fulfil in this  particular the Chinese idea of beauty  that she is willing to endure "a"little  pain to secuie that end. According to  our own Ideas, the binding of children's  feet is .>..nply barbarous; but that lt Is  largely a matter of point of view may  .be seen by what the Chinese lady hai  to say abouttthe tight waist ot women  I who represent the highest civilization:  "I for one prefer having small feet to  a little waist. My vital organs are not  affected in any way or injured by th������  confinement of my feet ln childhood,  *but the health of many a woman U  ruined by the constriction of her  waist."  In Germany.
