Earlier in the day it 11.-is  believed that the loss would be-sub*  .sliuiliiilly greater than lhis, hut close  scmtiny of the facts, indicates lh.it the  lesser estimate is as nearly accmate :������s  can be obtained for several days.  ' The fire broke out precisely al I!  o'clock, in the establishment oi* P.  Rums iV Co., butchers, Iwodoois.ioutli  of First avenue, on .Spokane street.  wheie a lire was in use for rendering  lard. The blaze was not discovered  until it had secured considerable headway, and by the time the alarm wu*!  turned in the flames were issuing from  the roof. The department was on the  ground quickly and water was playing  on the flumes two minutes after the  alarm sounded.  The Burns building was in the centre  of a. solid block of wooden buildings,  and the stiong breeze prevailing speedily spread the flames north and soutli,  despite the torieiits of water, tin own  by the.firemen. .In two minutes i'roni  the first outbreak the file had spread  nortli into.lhe Anaconda saloon, west  of the.M.'&M. saloon, and south  to the Coeur'"d'Alene saloon, while  Thompson's restaurant,- immediately,  adjoining UieBurns block, was involved  with rthe Burns, place ,in the first  outbreak.    ��������� * .    .-     ���������  -r   ,.  ��������� .Within the space of time indicated  the fire had jumped." First avenue ^ to  two large three story buildings used as  stores,*1 aiid these -weie totally wiped  out within an hour .of the. outbreak.  The.Hre' wits* '.spreading* east, rapidly.'  when the wind change'd and turned tlie  fii-e* west.' The.flames jumped Spokane  street.and .wiped, out half a ,dozen  business houses on that side., together  with all" the residences'in tliVbloekl".  The fire fighting service was. admirable and the water supply excellent-  The city brigade was assisted liy tlVe  War Eagle and Centre''Star mining  companies' well equipped fire brigade,  and during the afternoon the Trail  department arrived with 30 trained  men and a thousand feet of hose. Tlie  run from Trail was made by a special  train in 30 minutes. In addition sjores  of volunteers did good service at fighting the .flumes.  The only casualty -was an - accident  to Chief Guthrie, of the city brigade,  who was struck on the cheek by a live  wire, but it did not burn nor render  him unconscious. The accident led  to a report that the chief had been  killedrbut^ho-recovered���������-inimediately-  upon reaching the fire hall and resumed  the" direction of the brigade. After tlie  lire was iu pro'gress'an \ hour, and it  was believed that the business section  was doeined, the principal streets  presented "an >interesting spectacle.  Merchants commenced to move their  stocks, every .conveyance in the city  was impressed to carry goods to points  of safety while scores" of persons, who  were unable to secure conveyances ran  here and there panic stricken.  The Rossland Miner block was threatened for a time and material to issue  an emergency paper was carrie'doutof  the premises. Thu fire veered off when  but one small building "intervened  between the conflagration and the  newspaper office. The "Nickel "Mine  buildings are located at the head of  Centre Star gulch, and it was believed  that the flames would peneti ate that  far, in fact they did reach points two  hundred yards fioni the mine buildings.  Tlie entire force was turned out as a  fire brigade to protect the 'compressor,  shaft house, and valuable office buildings of the Rossland Great Western.  At one juncture it was helieved that  buildings would have to be dynamited  to save the city, and a considetablc  amount of giant powder .wife brought  down from theWarEagleiuiue, having  heen handed over by the company on  request, which alternative was not  resorted to, however. Ten constables  were sworn in to preserve order and  protect the thousands ot dollars worth  of merchandise of every description  about the streets, where it had lieen  hurridly posted in the first panic.  At dark tonight the burned area was  smouldering, but no danger :s apprehended.   ,,  Scarcely a vestige is left of the  various buildings which were wiped  out it) the disastrous two hour fire.  ' A Train Signal Invention. ���������  Mr. C. W. Davidson,  of Winnipeg,  conductor   on   the   CnTiiidiun   Pacific  railway, has invented and patented in  C.'in.'id.'i and the United States, a device  calculated to do awuy with the present  cumbersome und expensive svstem  of  *  1. '  railway (rain .signals   in   which   Hugs  and torpedoes have so long done  service. The de.'ice nhich was sug  gested to thf mind of the inventor as  he pondered how tbe difficulty of  colli iiiiial stopping of trains necessitated by the old system of torpedo  .signals could be overcome, is quite  .simple in construction and consists of  u gong and hammer which can be  attached'to the rail in such a way tint  1 be passage of every wheel tliioughout  the length of the train registers a  stroke on the gong. Mr. Davidson has  shown his device to a great many  railway officials in the east une. these  without exception pronounce it a  perfect working signal.  It is claimed for the_ device that its  adoption will save to the raiway com*  panics using it, thousands of dollars  annually which is lo^t year by year in  I he wear and tear on rolling stock and  loss of time and fuel consequent upon  so much useless stopping of tiains,  and al.so in the purchase of torpedoes,  which alone amounts to a considerable  sum. When it is Known that every  lime 11 trail* stops, there is a loss of  SO cents and in the case of large freight  i ruins a dollar. The number of useless  stops that may ha avoided' by the use  of this device will save a very" large  sum in a year. Tn addition to being  capable of perfectly . satisfactory  working the device has the advantage  of being cheaply constructed and when  its mei its become knoivn and its use  adopted "���������by the numerous .railway  systeins of America, the inventor "will  surely leap a snug fortune.

Tuesday   evening  saw   a large and  representative galheiiug oi the people  of Kevelstoke in the Methodist church  to hear Kev. .T. O. She.uer, B.A..  secretary of the Dominion Lord's  Day Alliance on the all important  topic of "The Buttle for the Sabbath  iu (Jan.-ida. Tlie united choiis of the  Presliyti'i-ian and .Methodist churches  furnished the music for ide occasion.  Solos were rendered by Mrs. Dent and  Mr. Melville'and tne choir anjinthem  "Praise ye the Lord." Kev. XV. C.  Calder occupied the.'chair.  Rev. Mr. Shearer expressed gieat  pleasure at 'seeing such a large and  enthusiastic meeting, in tact the  largest week night meeting he had  seen in B. C. He paid a glowing  tribute to tbe work of Messrs. Turk  and Kirby, the evangelists who are to  open a tluee week's campaign on the  7th inst. in Kevelstoke, urging upon  all the duty of making their meetings  a success. I'he speaker for a few  minutes dwelt upon the.-Lord's Day in  its impoi lance to the welfare of the  nation, showing how the people of  every nation were awakening to its  significance in the matters of their  social and material progress. He made  reference to France, Italy, and Germany in the marked change that was  manifested through the organiz-ttion  of societies for the advocacy of the  Day ot Rest and the passing of legMu"  tion for its protection. Mr. Shearer  settling down more closely to his  subject dealt with it under the follow*  ing heads: 1., That the national success of Canada depended upon the  preset vation of the day of- rest. '2.  That the success of the Kingdom of  Christ depended upon it. 3." Also  the physical, mental, moral and religious' welfare of all the people.' The  speaker then treated'his subject from  the standpointof its'foes arid friends.  Amongst its foes were th'e irreligious,  the immoial, all the lower elements of  society, including greed of money, and  seekers of pleasure, the passion for  sport, and foreign labor. Amongst  its friends, God, -all-'-branches oLrthe  Chinch, paying a high compliment" to  the stand'.of'-'the*" Roman -'Catholic  Church~in Canada and particularly  the attitude of Archbishop Bruchesi  of Montre.il,- the trades^'and. labor* are  on our side. 'Mr. Shear'eiVniade some  reference to the action of tbe Minister  of Customs in'stopping the excursions  from the-v. United States to Canadian  towns nu* the Great Lakes, also to"'the  attitude of "Ralph'.' Smith. A highly  instructive and' interesting address  brought to a close an eloquent pe'ror*  ation mging upon the hearers that  active interest of the laws of tbe  Loid's Day as would lead to its better  observance in this community and  British Columbia. The meeting was  brought to a close by the Doxology  and 'the Benediction pronjunced by  Mr. Shearer.  ��������� At the close of the meeting a branch  of ihe Lord's'Day Alliance was  organized with the following officers :  President, _Re_v W.j C._Calder;_:Vice-  Presidents, Rev.' C. Ladner. R. How*  son, T. More, H. Floyd, C. J. Wilkes,  and the presidents of the LHdies'Aidti  of the different churches; Secretary,  E. Wilson; Treasurer, W. Lefcaux..    "  Col. Prior's Visit.  Hon. E. G. Prior, acting premierand  Minister of Mines, paid Revelstoke a  visit on Tuesday last. Mr. Prior is  jiist returning from a ' visit to the  ICootenayand Boundary districts, with  a view of acquainting himself with the  conditions affecting the mining  industry of the Province. During his  stay in the city a large number of our  citizens availed themselves of the  opportunity of laying before him  matters of importance needing the  government's attention in this riding.  The Minister of Mines has taken the  proper course in coming to the mining  district and seeing for himself the  condition of affairs. There is not the  least doubt that when he returns to  Victoria he.will be able to lay before  bis colleagues a true statement of the  conditions as they exist today, and lie  in a much better position to formulate  plans for the encouragement of mining  in British 'Columbia for the future.  The people throughout the whole  country are well pleased _ with Col.  Prior's visit, and fully appreciate bis  desire to get among the mining men  ind others and find out from personal  observation the work that needs the  permanent attention of the government.

HOUSEHOLD H1NT8-  Taie up the stumbllne block out o������ the  way of My people.���������I&siinli.   WH.,  1*.  Christendom is the stumbling stono ot  Christianity. Christendom has thc name  , i Jesus Christ, but lacks His spirit.'  Make Gnristendoin Christian, wholly  cl.odicnt to'the will of Christ, and earth  would become an Eden.  Christendom betrays Christ���������often for  ��������� fold. It was not so at Ilrst, when  t bristianity had no Christendom back  of it, no heavy load such as Constantino,  Charlemagne and Henry VIII.1 to carry.  Note some results of making Christendom Cliristiw :���������  (_,') Changed lives. The religion of  Christ has suffered much from nominal  Christianity. The Sermon on the Mount  shows what the Mailer requires of His  followers���������that they be upright, honest,  sincere, pure, holy.  But tie lives of many Christians do  not barmonite with the rula of Christ.  On ihe 'other hand, unholy lives reproach and betray Him.   Tht, mistakes  . of Christian* turn tlie hands on the  dial plate of progress backward. Holy  living is ike great argument. Purify  ���������the lives of Christians and Eoon the  Master would rule the world.  (2) Governments w ould be revolutionized. Christianity lays dow* rules for  rations, but often the=c aie disobeyed  and shameful crimes aie committed. The  Golden "Rule has in too many cases failed to regulate national conduct. Blood  .-has .been used as ink lo write the history of many nations.  Cruelty, greed, lust of gold and injustice haves marred the conduct of nations bearing the name of Christ. Great  ���������States'have crushed small ones, grinding  them to dust with a heel o% s'teej. We'  may dream ef the millennium, but it will  no. dawn  until nations  regulate their  ��������� conduct by. the laws of Jesus Christ.  ��������� -(3) Christian principles put into prac-  .tfce -would have a bcuef.cial effect upon  -commerce, which has evened    np    the  ���������world to Christian influences. Commerce has spread its  white sails upon    y_  - the ooean highways of the world, and  ���������with it lave gone nolle men and women  ' with -messages of hope, love and salvation.  - .B"iit - commerce has often betrayed  Christ because not dominated'by Ohris-  ���������Ean principles. Unparalleled greed has  marred commerci:; 1 transactions, a3  -when Christian nations have fitted out  . -Slave vessels and sold into perpetual  ���������servitude thousands of the race. Not  -long-ago opium was forced upon the Chi-  I'sese hy bayonet and cannon, and to-day  ..Christian nations���������"upland, Germany  .ied the United    K'-.ies���������are    pouring  't-'-taorela of -rum down heathen throats  .

Dispose of Your Garbage at llomp.     5%  No more gathered garbage standins  round, no more flies, no more waiting  the janitor's pleasure. Charles R.

It takes the place of a link of pipe",  and while it does not    obstruct   thu  Danger ln Wells.  It Booms to be the somewhat widespread belief among mankind that if one  can get a nuisance underground and ont  of sight nil trouble is hereby disposed of. Creamery companies are peculiarly liable to this belief, writes F.  G. S., in Hoard's Dairyman, and where  surfuco drainage is deficient the attempt  is frequently made to either sink -a tu-  kulur well into the sand or gravel or  use a shallow surface well to dispose of  the creamery waste.  The results from such a method are  more Jiliuu liable to be disappointing, especially if thc creamery well is in the  neighborhood of the drainage well. Depending 011 its composition, soil will take  up, filter out mid destroy a certain  amount of waste organic matter, but it  rapidly loses this power unless it is  turned over und exposed to the oxidizing  power of the air. So when the largo  amount of waste matter from thc creamery is turned into a trainagc well, it only  forms n source from wliich polluted  water is supplied to the creamery, and  the result 011 the butter is what "might  he expected.

It is certain, for instance, that Canada has better shooting than Michigan in the Lake St. Clair  district, for tne reason that Canada  gives six weeks more protection, and  the ducks are not frightened away by  an early bombardment. In consequence,  the kill in Michigan has declined, while  thai across the river is as good as of  yore. Likewise, I know one section of  Wisconsin once famed for its great  flights that now has scarcely a duck.  Yet the country round about has not  suffered correspondingly. Here, in theso  Sandusky shooting grounds, was a similar example. Formerly the law' permitted duck-shooting as_ early'as September 1. A number ofthe cli|bs took  advantage of the early weeks. The  Ottawa Club and one or two others declined to Bhoot until later, with the result that when, toward the season's  close, ducks were growing scarce on  neighboring preserves the Ottawa men  had the hest of shooting.

Needless to say, it  was not in reference to South African  affairs. But quite recently in Congress,  im connection with the Philippine civil  government bill, according to the report  published by Tho Now York Tribune,  Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio spoke in defence  of the army in the Philippines. In no  war of modern times, he declared, had  there been less brutality and retaliation  than in the war in the Philippines. That  would be the verdict of history. If everything that had been said of General  Jacob H. Smith were true, he could find  its counterpart on both sides in tlio  civil war. He read a report from General Grant to the Government, telling  of the arrangements he had made to  carr'y desolation everywhere through the  Shenandoah Valley; to seize all men under fifty years of age as prisoners, of  war; to destroy crops and make the valley a "hai-rcn waste." "Before 'Phil'  Sheridan got through he made it a barren waste," said "Mr. Grosvenor. Ho  .then read from "The Letters of Stonewall Jackson," edited by his wife, a  statement that Jackson believed the  black (lag should be raised and no quarter given as the best means of resisting  invasion, and saying that he had urged  this policy on Lee. He also read a telegram from General Beauregard urging  the passage of a bill for the execution  of prisoners. By this means, the telegram read, "England will be stirred to  action." Jlr. Grosvenor said he did  not read these things'to rekindle tho  embers of sectionalism, hut . to show  how deplorable war always was.  "When that bill was introduced in  the Confederate Congress," asked Mr.  Bartlett of Georgia, "had not Lincoln  issued a proclamation to seize* the citizens of the valley of Virginia and try  them by court-martial and had they  not been seized ?"  "I do not know," replied Jlr. Grosvenor.  "That is history," declared Mr. Bartlett.  "If that is true," responded Mr. Grosvenor, "it furnishes only another reason to excuse those of our soldiers who  retaliated when tho natives in the Philippines sneaked up and cowardly murdered their comrades."  Mr. Grosvenor also defended the rules  of the House, and paid a high tribute  to  Speaker  Henderson's  impartiality.  Mr. Mahon of Pennsylvania maintained that the Filipinos were not fit - for  independence. Speaking of the cruelties charged against some of the" officers and men in the Philippines, he declared that they were not to be compared with the barbarities of the civil  war. He read from ofiicial reports tales  of the horrors suffered by. the Union  prisoners at Andersonville.  "Do not the official figures show," interrupted Mr. Biehardson, the Demo  cratic leader, "that a' greater percentage of confederate prisoners died in  northern than Union prisoners in south-  ern  prisons V ���������  "I have the official .figures here," replied Mr. Mahon. "I will put them ia  the record." He read an order to shoot  the prisoners at Andersonville if ths  Union army got within seven miles of  the prison.  "It* the north was justly indignant  over the atrocities at Andersonville,"  interrupted Mr. Xeville of Nebraska,  "why should not the American people  now���������be^. ir.dignanti-ov-ir���������lhe���������bruta.ides-  in the Philippines 5 \, ny parade the  civil war horrors as an excuse!"

"While the Union prisoners were suffering at Andersonville." interposed -Mr.  Richard-son, "did nnt the Confederate  Government* have nn a -itanding olfer to  exchange .those pri-oners, officer for  officer and man for luan ?

He read from 'a report by  Charles A. Dana, Assistant Secretary of  War, saying that the conditions of the  Union prisoners in the south was no  worse than that of the Confederate  soldiers in the field. To prove his statement that a greater percentage of Confederate soldiers died in Union prisons  than of Union soldiers in Confederate  prisons, he produced figures from Secretary Stanton's report of July 10, I860,  showing that of 220.000 Confederate  soldiers in Union prisons 20,570, or ovor  12 per cent., died, against 22,570, or  about 9 per cent, of the 270,000 Union  soldiers in Confederate prisons.  Burled Alive.  Maturally enough, the entombing of  Joshua Sanford in thc well near Paris  and his rescue, have recalled numerous  instances of a somewhat similar nature.  Perhaps the most remarkable of theso  is the following, recently published by  The Hamilton Times :���������  Tliere have been some very remark-  able cu.scs of entombment and rescue.  Dr. Geike tells the story of one which  took place in the Cnrrick country, a  rough, hilly district on the west coast  of Scotland, where a% little bit of the  great Scottish coal field has got jammed into the steep sides of the valley  of the Girvan. Visitors to the quiet kirk-  yard of Dnilly arc shown a stone bearing the following inscription :���������  In Memory of ijiij  JOHN BROWN, COLLIER,  who was enclosed in  Kilgrammie   Coal-pit.   by  a   portion  of  it having fallen in,  Oct.  8,   1S35.  having been twenty-three days in utter  seclusion from the world, and without  a particle of food.    He  lived three  days after, having quietly expired  on- the   evening   of  Nov. 3.-  Aged   60   years.  Brown was entoinbed by a "crush,"  he having gone back to get his jacket.  "The jacket is a new one," said he, as  he hastened back into the pit as his*  comrades were leaving as fast as their  legs would carry them, "and, as for tho  pit, I've been in a crush before now,  and have won through, an' I'll win  through now." But ere lie got back tho  entire roof caved in, and for some days  he was given up for dead. Thc "crush"  took place on Wednesday, and on Sunday the minister of the wee kirk made  a powerful appeal to the people not to  give up hope, and the work of tinin iling  in was begun. On the twenty-third dayv  after the accident thc workmen got  through the ruins and into the open  Workings .beyond, and some of them wero  nearly frightened out of their wits by  hearing a groan. One more venturesome  than his fellows advanced and said, "If  that's your ain groan, John Brown, in  thc name o' God. gie nnither." And in  a few minutes they were bearing their  old comrade to the light, convinced that  it was indeed himself, and not somo  trick of the evil one, of whom they  stood much in dread. Brown's , iirst  words were, "Gie me a drink"j and then,  "Eh, boys, ye hae been lang o' coming."  He had not had a bite to eat, and for  seven day3 not a drop to drink, although he could hear water running  near him. His hair and beard were  matted with the coal fungus which  gathers in the pits, and his flesh' had  the appearance of a mummy. He was  wasted to a shocking extent and was  Very weak; hut he had never given up  the hope of rescue and he was hopeful  of recovery, saying: "Eh, boys, wheu I  Win through this I've a queer story to  tell you." But he was not-to "win  through." Thc exhaustion had been too  much and he expired three days after  being taken out of the mine. "The inquest showed that almost every particle  of fatty matter in the body had been  consumed, but it did not succeed in convincing the simple and superstitious people of the district that there was nothing  uncanny about Brown, the doctor who  held the post mortem being asked by  scores "if he had . seen his feet," they  being convinced that Brown must have  had a cloven hoof.,  Sheep on the Farm.  Rule Britannia���������As It is Sunflr  Wool has almost ceased to be a factor in the sheep industry, as farmers  have discovered that thero is more  money in selling early lambs and fat  wethers than to depend solely upon wool  as a source of profit from sheep. The  flceeo is simply a by-product, and no  progressive farmer now .expects to make  sheep pay with the wool as the principal source of revenue from the flock.  The majority of farmers do not have  large Hocks, 25 sheep being considered  as above the average, and they are  kept largely because they aro of valuable assistance on the farm in consuming weeds and other waste materials  that possess no value. It is well known  that 11 Hock of sheep will clear a field  of weeds rapidly, and they will also keep  the pests down. While so doing they  distribute manure evenly on tlio ground  and presa it into the soil with their  feet. For these advantages from sheep  there are farmers wlio would not ba  without them, ns they save labor and  demand but lillle attention, lt has  been frequently demonstrated that from  fields upon wliich large Hocks of sheep  have been hurdled the yields of grain  have been doubled, duo to the fertility  added to the soil by thc sheep. Farmers who give their attention to early  lambs and the production of choice  mutton have found Southdown rams ex-'  ccllcnt for the improvement, of the  common flocks, as thc Southdown is  hardy, and such sheep can be kept in  larger flocks than the Oxfords or Shrop-  shircs, though the latter breeds arc larger in size .than the Southdown. The  preference for the Southdown is also  duo to the fact that the grades.are excellent foragers and can subsist on  scanty herbage compared with some  other breeds or crosses. Wherever cattle are kept sheep can lind also a place,  as the sheep will clean up lands upon  which the cattle may leave much that  could bei turned into profit. No fanner,  however, can expect thc best results  from sheep without care ; but sheep  require less attention (ban other animals . on the farm.���������Philadelphia lie-  cord.  the  reeord," said  Mr, Mahon.

The  Prime Minister commended Lord Goschen's declaration on the same grounds  as those on which we yesterday welcomed Lord Salisbury's own reference lo  the place of sea power in Imperial defence���������namely, that the bare word of a  trusted statesman is more convincing to  the public mind than- much literature  and many arguments. To those, however, who have the will to read and tho  mind to understand, ive commend as a  supplement to Viscount Goschen's striking* figures a perusal of the volumo  which has been issued from tho Custom  House, giving details for the past live  years of the over-sea trade of tlio  United Kingdom. So far from our trade  showing nny signs of decay, the record  of the past five years is one of astound-,  ing progress. Thc j"nr 1000, as most  people know, was a record year, wliich  we have never equalled -before, and, per-  hap.*', mjy not equal again for several  yeais to come. But in 1001 there iva3  nothing abnormal about our trade,  ar.d it may, therefore, fairly be compared with the earlier years of the quinquennium. In import.", which give tho  best indication of the purchasing power,  and, therefore, of the general prosperity  of the country, we lind that there wud  ������n   increase  in   the    five ��������� years     from  ������401,000,000 to ������522,000,000.

At thc same time, reexports of imported produce, which sliniv  the activity of our entrepot trade, increased from ������00,000,000 to ������US,000,000.  In face of these figures, it seems a pity  tlint so many well-intentioned people  should waste their energies in bewailing  the decadence of British trade. ���������Loudon Daily Graphic. ,/  '    Dojn���������How many times did you ref usa'  Jack before you accepted him?

Nitrogen is tlie valuable constituent  of the white of the egg. the gluten of  wheat, of lean meat, of blood, and of  all flesh-forming suhstiinccs. When animal matter is decomposing, the nitrogen  unites with hydrogen and forms ammonia. When we feed meat to poultry,  we do so in order to procure the.nitro-  gen, which, through the process of digestion and chemical reaction, is converted into albumen or some other form  of nitrogen. There is no food that can  .bo given that will produce more eggs  than bones, for. bones not only contain nitrogen, but. abound in mineral  matter. The waste of bones that might  otherwise be used for food is enormous,  says an American paper. ��������� ,     -  By bones is-not meaiit the. hard, dry  bones, but the ones that have a littlo  lean meat ��������� on them, whicli is-one of tha  egg-producing elements. When the hard,  dry bone is ground up there is much  time .wasted, for it can be bought"  oheaply, but freshly ground bone' cannot bo bought. The fresh bones must  be ground and used at once,.or some  of the valuable properties will be ��������� lost:  By the use of green bones we provide  not only grit, but a complete egg' food,  carbon and water excepted, while dry  bones and shells do not possess these  qualities. The demand for a hand bone-  mill has become great In the last few  years, because poultry-raisers have come  to the conclusion that the fowls must  have fresh, green bones, and' they must  bo used immediately after they aro  ground. Many times there arc bones  left from, the table which are exceedingly valuable for fowls, and there are  also many bones that the butcher would  be glad to " sell for a-mere trifle, but  which will yield more'than-their value  ln eggs. Do not throw away- green  bones, but saye time and money by  grinding them and* giving them to the  birds. - -  The effervescences of Peace Day  prompted The London Daily Chronicle  to suggest that the street boys* should  bu tested as to their knowledge of the  words "linie, Britannia."

Contrary lo the general, belief, Buff Leghorns do not coinc from a  cross known as Bull1 Cochins or Brown  Leghorns, us rumored by our, brother  fanuurs. They ave a uislir.ct breed.  They wore originat-d in England thirteen years ago. Some ot.our brother  fanciers have made importations, from  tliere. No new vuriety has ,cvcr come  along so fast or titktn a. stronger hold  on the admiration of fanciers as well  as utility breeders, for lhey certainly  have in thciu the el. incuts which mca-  buro up to the high.-st standard of excellence for both f.'.ucier and ��������� farmer.  Tliey will prove their own merits of all  or more than has ever been claimed for  tlieni.  First, they aro the handsomest of all  the Leghorn family. Second, while in  general characteristics similar.to other  varieties of Leghorns, they are superior  in some respects. Third, tho characteristic of the variety which will strongly  recommend them to breeders' is their  extreme hardiness,' . especially when  young. They come to maturity very  young. I have had several cockerel3  crowing when six .weeks old.  They are great layers of large white  eggs that are unequalled for their size.  I hnd kept an "egg reeord of my Buff  Leghorn pullets, they laying as high'as  200 eggs in twelve" months, of -which  they hold their own record.  I* have had the A-iatic breed, which  only laid 08 cegs in thc~twelve months.  The Buffs will 0utl.1v all the Asiatics.  Tliey are small eaters, and hear confinement well, and are good foragers  when allowed lo run. *,.  ��������� The .luffs are here to stay, and are  mortgage lifters. If there is a mortgage  on your farm you will make no* mistake  in purchasing a few settings of eggs from  rood stock and starting to raise Buff  Leghorns. The demand for Buffs is'increasing every day. They are very styl-  i?h. and have the most" beautiful buff  color, which presents a hanasome appearance, which, when seen on a green  lawn, mot-" th-rn favorites with most  people.

"Very well, I dare* ay you are right,"  t rejoined, hopelessly. "I will writo  such a letter."  Lady Feo's hand >ose nervously to  her breast, toying with the orchids  pinned among her leces.

John Uourko'8 words, which h.'iil  made me so happy and hopeful only nn  hour or two ago. came back to me now,  lurid In the light of a new ,meaning.  I sal down at lhe table from which  I had risen at'tho sound of Lady Feo's  voice In the passa.ee and'deliberately  placed a fresh sheet of paper hi  the  typewriting machine. Then I began to  tap out, letter by letter, my, farewell to  the man I loved.  "Dear Mr. Bourke," I wrote. "It is  easier to write some things than to  speak them. After all. I don't think  that the life of a typewriter would suit  me. I have grown restless and want a  change." (How my heart smote mo as  my ringers *to!d tho falsehood!) "Perhaps I was foolish to choose poverty  when I might have had all I could possibly wish for. So now I have changed  my mind. Lest you should not" approve, and I should be forced to argue  my point (I'm not good at argument..  I will not wait'to hear what you think  of this step I am taking, but will sav  farewell now. Thank you again for ell  your kindness, which I-shall never  cease to appreciate. But I sb'all be  happier In a life more like that to  which I was brought up. In that life  we may not meet again; and so this Is  jrood-bye."  Lady Feo's eyes followed each line as  I typed it. "'Well?" I said at last, when  I took the paper, from the machine to  sign.  "It Is very well indeed," she pro-'  nounced. "You'have given exactly the  impression that it Is best to convey.  Tou couldn't do better."  ��������� "I-am glad'you'are satisfied," I said.  In a stifled voice. I dipped a pen In-an  Ink-pot standing near, then paused  with It suspended. I. had never signed  the name which was really mine," Jenny Harland," and to do so .was rev  pulslve. "I will not be Jenny," I said  to myself; "not to him at least., In thi**  one Uilng I will Indulge my own wish.  I shall sign myself 'Sheila.'

My eyes flashed to'hers.  "I am doing this, not for you but for  Mr. Bourke," I said. "I will not go back  from my promise to myself."  "T'-idi T do trurt you."  She had the last word and so was  vme.  Mechanically I began to put away  the material on which I had been at  work. . I had flni'hed . typing Mr.  Bourke's article, which was to appear  .ti the "Fortnightly Review." Never  would I do nny more work for him.  But he would find plenty of others to  step into my place. I had only been  employed out of charity. *   -    - ^  When I had neatly arranged the papers I had no longer an eXcusSe for in-  ictlon. I must make up my mind ex-  xctly What to do with myself. Some-  now I seemed alw. ys to be making up  iiy mind what to do ivlth myself: and  is soon as the matter was settled Fate  .nterfered to undo it all again.    I hid  -nn away from Arrlsh Mell Court; %���������  lad run away from Easel street; now  r was going to run away from John  Bourke, which meant 'leaving all that  had become to me best worth living  tot.  I .had promised him that never again  would I be a cowaid nnd seek to end  my own life. I would not break tho  promise, and so my troublesome self  had to be provided fcr; plans made by  which my body was to be fed and  jlothed, Just as IC lt were still of some  importance.  There was Roger Cope, of course. I  ;ou!d really do the thing which In my  letter to Mr. Bourke I' had hinted at.  Probably Roger's offer was still open,  ind If I took It I could rehabilitate myself In tho eyes of the world, In case  my acquaintance with tha great "La-  oor Member" became known to others  beside Lady Feo Rlngwood. Yet, no! I  sotiUl not bring myself to that.  I thought of Mr. Westerley. But he  liked Roger, and would advise mo to  net In a way contrary to my Inclinations, if according to common sense.  He was a dear old matchmaker, and  with the best Intentions In the world he  would work to throw Roger Cope and  me together. There-fore, Mr. Westerley was still out of the question.  My eyes, fell upon ;*. newspaper lying  on the desk. It had not been there, I  knew, before Lady Pco camo. She had.  doubtless, brought It in and forgotten.  to tako it away. I picked It up and  turned to the advertising pages. -I could  not go back to any of the agencies I  had  visited   while   I   lived   in   R'isel  ���������treet, for Mr. Bourite was prtfbawy  right ln his deductions. At all events,  they had offered me no hope, after tho  flrst visits I paid them; but Roger had  certainly lost sight of me now, and he  could not prejudice the minds of advertisers in the papers In case I should  luckily discover one willing to try my  services.  But I could And nothing In the long  lists of persons .wanted which offered  hope for me, and I was on the point of  flinging the paper aside with an impatient sigh when' my eyes happened  to fall upon the "personal" column on  the flrst page.  Then my heart gave a great hound  and I snatched up the paper again.  CHAPTER XVn.  What I Saw in the Personal Column.  Destiny seemed bent on playing  strange tricks with me of late; and the  last trick was no less curious than  those which had gone before. Strangest  of all was it that this should come to  mo now.  "Heart-shape" were the two words,  in capital letters at the head of the  "personal" column, which had caught  my startled attention. "If the younger  of the .two ladies who saw something  which surprised her at the theater on  a night several weeks ago would like to  hear the explanation of a mystery and  at the same ��������� time receive information  greatly to her t advantage," the paragraph went on, "she should be at the  Marble' Arch between the hours of  seven and eight to-night or to-morrow.  Later the offer may ho longer be open."  The advertisement was meant for me,  and no one else on earth!  By the wording, "to-night or to-morrow," I Judged that .this was the first  time that the notice-had appeared. It  would come out once again perhaps,  and then���������unless the writer altered his  or her Intention���������no more. ��������� ���������   .  I readlthe-paragraph for the second  time, and -was struck by .the conviction  that It had been cleverly planned to be  understood by me alone.  'If if had begun with' the words,  "Heart-sjiaped scar," -others in the secret of -��������� that mysterious sign���������John  Bourke, for* instance���������might have been  prompted-by-'curiosity or an even deeper, motive, to keep the appointed rendezvous. ' But "Heart-shape" might  mean almost anything, were it not. for  the special significance of the message  which followed. The" uninitiated might  easily pass it by as'the device chosen  by* lovers who corresponded - through  .the personal column' of a newspaper.  But I knew differently���������I only. For  the other eyes which had seen the  "something surprising at the theater"  would never see'anything else in this  world. A shiver went through my veins  as I remembered the white, white arm  on the background nf black satin, and  the vivid, pansy-colored, heart-shaped  stain. For an Instant I saw", as clearly  as I had seen it before, the gypsy face  which had looked up to our box from  the-'stalls^wlth-its-pale-cat-eyes���������The-  atmosphere of mystery and dread  closed round me again, and I felt lt as(  I had felt it then. '  , '   , :  '"' Should I keep the'/ tryst, or should 1  not? The thought frightened, yet at  the same time fascinated me.  ' There was still enough of the old self  left in me to tingle with a subtle curiosity at the thought of, solving the  mystery connected with Lady .Cope's  death���������the mystery which' wove. Its  web round John Bourke,'as well. As  for the "Information greatly tomy advantage," my mind aid not dwelt upon  that with"such* a sense of allurement.  It seemed to me that, since I must go  out of this" one man's . life, nothing  'could be really worth having any more.  But I could not long resist the calling  of the syren.voice, and after a very  few moments of',hesitation I determined  that I would be at the* Marble Arch at  the time appointed.  It was afternoon s".Il, and there was  little to delay me. The things given by  John Bourke or lent by Mrs. Jennett I  would not, of course, take away. I  had only to change the tea-gown which  had cost me so mucn bitterness for the  black frock which I had worn when 1  came; make some t-ccuse to Mrs. Jennett for my departu. c���������an excuse wliich  would not cause he.- to send word of  my sudden move to Mr. Bourke���������and  then I could go. .    .   _  I was about to cuf the advertisement  from the paper, when I reflected that  to do so might rouse suspicion;'- and  instead I tore off the entire sheet,  which I folded into, small compass.  Then I threw the remainder into the  waste-paper basket, and was on my  way to the door when Mrs. Jennett  came smiling in with a tray. "Ive  brought your tea, my dear," she said,  cbirpily. "It's ai-ir the usual time, but  I Just wouldn't bring It in while her  ladyship- was here. I had an idea,  somehow, that you wouldn't care for  her to stop too long. And, my gracious!  I was ln such a state (when she would  Insist on bouncing in. 'Tivas almost as  if she knew there was something In  the room I didn't w-mt her to see. But,  of course, she could.rt. I do hope you  didn't mind. As it turned out you'd  met before, lt was all right."  "Oh, yes, it was all right," I echoed,  drearily. . - "'���������  "*rc-*>u   you've see- Mr. Bourke's wife  to lie, if Mie can a.,/.v.iy*_ manage it,'-  Mrs. Jennett went briskly on, a-J she  finished clearing a .sji.iue for the tea-  tray on the table whore I had been  working. "I rupp'..se she* could call  herself Lady Feo Bourke, if lt should  conn; off, couldn't ���������������������������lie?"  "1 ---.ipposo so," I .'epoated.  "That would sound well! But then,  Mr. Bourke doesn't care about titles  and things of that sort, or money either. They say Lady Beaconsfleld proposed to her husband under the clock  at the Crystal Palace or somewhere;  and) he took her because she was rich,  and could help him to reach the place  he wanted. And they were happy ever  'after, just as it says-in Uie story-books.  Not that Mr. Bourk" would tako a wife  for any reason of that sort, no mntter  how much it might be to his advantage���������which it certainly would! But  then, her ladyship is such a beauty,  and has such a way with her, anyone  might fall ln love with her just for herself.   Don't you think so?"  "I do," I answered, truthfully. For  I thought that, though I now, as a girl,  almost haled Lady Feo, if I were a  man she would be exactly the kind of  woman I should admire most. And I  grudged "her tho admission, which it  hurt my heart to give.  "Well, we shall see what we shair  see," remarked Mrs. Jennett, oracularly. "Anyhow, Lady Feo lllngwood is  the only great lady that Mr. Bourke  ever will go to see; though there's a  lot of them would give their eyes to get.  him at thoir houses.    Haven't I made'  your  tea  right,  my   dear?    You  said  yesterday lt was so nice."  "So it is now," I reassured her. "But  my thoughts were somewhere else, to  tell the truth. I���������I've been reading a  thing in the paper that set me thinking  of���������a vory dear friend. I can't bear to  wait any longer. I shall have to go  out this very afternoon, to���������to make  "some enquiries 'about 'her. You must  not be worried if I should stay late, or  even be away all night."  "Dear me," said Mrs. Jennett, "I'm  not at all sure, miss, that I ought to let  you go.   The doctor said, you must be  so careful not to take cold "  "Ah, that was ten days ago," I reminded her.  "But you haven't.been out of doors  since you came here. Do wait, miss,  till Mr. Bourke's- been in to-morrow,  and see what he says."  "I can't wait .to see what Mr. Bourke  says," I replied, trying to speak lightly, though the thought of his next coming wrung my heart. "He could say  no more than you, after,all, dear Mrs.  Jennett; for, kind as he has been, he's  not the master of my actions."  "Of course not, miss," protested the  little old "woman. "But if you should  spend the night with your friends, and  he should come, before. you got back,  ".I'm .sure he'd' be anxious. He's only a  -young man, but'* he's much .older than  y'ou| and he looks upon* you as a child  ���������himself as a sort of guardian. He told  me so himself." /  "He's not likely to call very early," I  said, winking away the, tears that  ' rushed to my eyes. "Oh, how hot this  tea is! -It almost-made me cry! And  I shall leave a note which you can give  him, ln case���������he'should be before me."  ' "Very- well, If - you must go, you  must," sighed Mrs. Jennett. "But I  shall be glad when it's to-morrow at  this time, and I -see you and Mr. Bourke  sitting with your heads together over  tha typewriter." ���������  I. could bear, no more,.-but -sprang  from my chair. "I. must go and "get  ready," I -explained. "Here's the note.  I -wrote it to hand to you."  "And her ladyship's? The'letter she  was to give yeu for Mr. Bourke?"  -. "She forgot to write it, after all," I  said. "She was so interested in talking to me���������about him."  * "I.'suppose' she left her regards?"  Mrs! Jennett suggested, slylyl  "Something of the sort. You can  give.them to Mr. Bourke if you like."  I talked with! my back to her, lest sho  should see that tears were running  down mys cheeks; and, reaching the  door, I ran away without turning, on  pretense of" being in a desperate .hurry.  It had seemed hard to,leave beautiful Arrlsh Mell Court,' but it was a  hundred times harder to leave this  plain little house In Westminster. 'I  had grown to love it dearly. (Mrs. Jennett had told m-e.how, when her "poor  husband died," she had fallen into financial difficulties, and John Bourke���������  who knew them both through work her  husband had done for him���������came to the  fescue, as he always did when he pos-  _sIbly_-could,__if_rpeople^.w_ere_ln,.trouble..  He had offered to pay the rent of the  house, and so much besides, as her  lodger���������a very generous arrangement,  Mrs. Jennett' had * gratefully added.  That was years .ago, but, though it was  a poky little place in a dull neighbor-1  hood, and several very'grand men had  wanted to share their chambers with  Mr. Boui ke (for s:ie had overheard  them say so with her own ears) he  would not move away.     - . .  I loved the house because it wa3 associated with him, and I loved Mrs.  Jennett because she loved him, and because he'was good to her," even more  than for the reason of her kindness to  me. But 1 wished the little bedroom,  whore I had slept and dreamt of him  good-bye, and I came downstairs and  bade farewell with my eyes to tho  study, and Irom the mantel I stole the  worst and oldest of the pipes In tho  motley collection tliere. Then I was  ready to go; and 1 kissed Mrs. Jennett,  who stood in,the l.-ont door, waving  her hand that still hcid_ the. letter 1 had  written to Mr. Boui:*e."'  It was half-pust l.vo, and, though )  must walk because I had no money, I  thought that 1 shou*d rea-sh the Marble  Arch shortly after .!x. 1 did not quite  know the way there from'Westminster,  but I should recog-ilzc the neighborhood, with which I had Once been .tolerably familiar; and 1 could enquire the  ���������direction from time to time.  I was longer in reaching the Journey's end than I had expected, however, for my illness had weakened me;  'and, though I started out briskly at  lirst, I was soon so tired that I was'  glad! to slacken!my pace.

Altogether it was  nearer seven than six when I saiv'the  Marble Arch'ln the distance,- and I was  fearful lest I should be 'too late.  I quickened my steps, with my. heart  beating fa&t, and joined the crowd-  which I always associated with the  Marble Arch.

'  The Bow StuTtcil lu :i N������*Kro Suuilay Scliool  \iyii >o\v Teucher. -,  The daughter of a man prominent ln  Washington tells an amusing story of  her recent experience in negro Sunday,  school work.  She has taught a Sunday school class  for years, and, being used to colored  servants, flattered herself that she understood the negro temperament. So  when a Washington friend who taught  a class of negro children in the'poorer  aunrter ofthe town was taken il! and  obliged to miss her Sunday school  class, the young woman of experience  blithely volunteered as substitute. Tho  teacher looked doubtful.  "Thoy are   awfully Ignorant   littla  darkles." . ���������  -  "Of course." ~ '  "And they don't always behave well."  "Now don't worry for a minute. I  reckon 1 can nianago    a roomful    of  pickaninnies."  So thn matter was arranged. Then  the substitute teacher betook herself  to earnest thought. She wanted to  make a hit with the children, and she  didn't Intend to he tied d.iwn to any  biblical order of sequence. She would  pick out a lesson whenever she could  find ono to suit the emergency.  The only problem was the choosing  of the chapter that would prove most  thrilling and appeal most stroncly to  the Juvenile darky. Tbe teacher-elect  went at the question intelligently.  What did negroes like most? sho asked  herself. Sho meditated a long timo  and went back over her experiences.  Finally she decided that long namer,,  gorgeousness and heat were as dear to  the darky heart as anything in tho  (world.  That fact being established she ran  a meii..il eve over tho chapters of the  Bible. At Shadrach, Meshack and  Abcdnego she stopped ln triumph.  There was a subject retdy to her hand  ���������long names, pomp and circumstances,  fiery furnace and all.  She studied diligently and on Sunday  morning sallied forth full of enthusiasm. In a stuffy little room on a narrow alley she found fifteen preternat-  urally solemn little darkles waiting for  her. They rolled their eyes at her arrival and looked, a shade more solemn.  The teacher felt a throll of plrasuro  at the thought of.the coming triumph-  She had decided that since grandeur  was beloved of the colored raco she  would preface the entry of Shadrach,  Meshach and Abednego by a vivid description of the magnificence and ex-  'ravagance of the times.. Then, having 'captured the attention of her pupils, she would'go on to the men of imposing names and the fiery furnace.  Her reasoning) was good, but hor  knowledge of pickaninny nature was  defective. " She began her description  of the times. Rapt attention. Then,  unfortunately, she was moved to talk  of golden images and she askedji ques;  tion. ��������� ��������� jii-.'.^'t ������ "*" ?7'������y:_.

" The" question had hardly  -left her .lips before a" fat little dark7  on the front seat held upTiis hand and  \umbled breathlessly, into speech:  "Yes, lady; I done seen golden image, big as de d ih." ,  The boy next co him gave him a vicious nudge.    . *. "'  , ','G'way, you niggah!    I seen imaso  blggah'n dis room,"   said the   second  boy.  They were off. Every child in tho  class had lived a Ikj full of golden images. Each image mentioned was bigger, tl' m the last; each voice was louder than the last.  The teacher gasped and tried to still  the tumult; but she 'was helpless  against the storm she had raised.

The Hope of the West.  All anxiety as to   the   great  wheat  crop of the Northwest isnow at an end.  The golden grain has reached maturity  without  damage   ancl will practically  nil grade as No. 1 Manitoba hard the  finest wheat produced in the world antl  therefore will fetch the highest prices.  All that remains to be done  is to get  the rich fruits of the earth  upon  the  market.    Work with that end in view  will  become general  this week.   The  season of activity is now on  and will  not end with the storage ot  the yield  in the elevators and cars.    It  will   be  prolonged through the winter and will  mean   the   greatest year's business in  the history of Canada.     Our   Golden  north, with its harvest wrested   from  the creeks and the benches, is not to be  despised,   but   it   is insignificant as n  producer of general   prosperity   compared with that annually brought forth  by the rich soil of the prairies.   There  is no industry so diffusive of prosperity  as that of agricultural.     It  lias   now  become a truism that the fruits of the  field are the foundation in the wealth  the farmer produces.   The transportation companies (whether operating on  land    or   water.)    the   bunkers,   tlie  merchants,  , the    manufacturers,   all  sharein thewealth thefarmerproduces.  The developments of the past couple  of years have practically elevated the  despised Northwest, the frigid zone of  Canada, into the banner   section,   the  hope of the Dominion.    The pride of  Ontario haa  been ��������� humbled  and she  i-ecognises that in a few years she will  occupy second place as a producer of  the goods that are to  make a mighty  nation ot this Canada   of   ours.     We  frankly acknowledge that   at   present  the precious minerals, the base metals,  the coal, the fish and the other sources  VERY interesting- -book might b������  written, aa the "Spectator" observes, by collecting* together all  tlie cases in -wliich poets and  dramatist*, and novelists -have ���������anticipated che triumphs of latter science. A  correspondent has Just called attention  to such a case, ln which he claim*  that the Spanish dramatist Calderon  uttered "a very clear prevlaloa of Marconi's wireless 'telegraphy." Freely  translated, the passage ln question  reads as follows: 'They say that when  two Instruments are properly attuned  together tliey communicate to each  other their .wind-borne echoes; touch  the one instrument and the winds excite Its fellow, though none .be near lt."  Oalderon's reference is, of oourne, to  the well-known principle ctf resonance,  and can scarcely .be used as a prophecy  of wireless telegraphy, but dn the writings of a contemporary of Calderon  there is a much closer approximation  to Marconi's discovery. Strada, the  learned Jesuit historian, tells us how  two friends carried on a correspondence "by the help of a certain Loadstone, which had such virtue In It that,  if it itouched two several needles, when  one of the needles so itouohed began to  move, .the other, though at never so  great a distance, moved at the same  time and in the same manner." Strada  goes on to describe how these two  friends made a kind of "alphabetic  telegraph" ��������� a -dial-face .with the let-  tens of the alphabet placed around its  edge, and a needle in the center which  could be made to point a-t any of the  lebters at will. "When they were some  hundreds of miles asunder, each of  them shut himself up in his closet at  the time appointed, nnd immediately  cast his eye upon his dial-plate. If he  had a mind to write anything to hia  friend, he directed his needle to every  letter thait formed the .words which he  had occasion for, making a little pause  at the end of every word or sentence to  avoid confusion. The tfrlend. ln thc  meanwhile, saw his sympathetic needle  ���������moving of Itself .to every letter -which  that of his correspondent pointed at.  By this means 'they talked across a  whole continent, and conveyed their  thoughts to one another dn an Instant,  over cities or mountains, seas or deserts." Not only had these correspondents no necessity Air wires; they did  not even .need the simple apparatus  upon .which Marconi depends, although  there are scientific prophets of our day  who *be'Iieve that we shall yet reach  even a higher standard of simplicity In  the future.  Recognized Their Old Friend.  THE love which English people,  especially British soldiers, feel for  Florence Nightingale has been  shown at many tLmes and in many  places. A new and striking instance of  ������. was recently given by tihe "Sunday  Magazine."  The late Sir John Steell, sculptor to  Queen Victoria, was modeling .a-bust of  Mists Nightingale, -when an ofllcer of  one of the Highland regiments which  had suffered so cruelly in the Crime*  heard that the bust had Just -been coai-  -pleted, and was in Sir John's studio.  Many of the men in Ms company had  passed throug<h the hospital at Scutari,  and he obtained permission from the  sculptor to bring some of them to see  lt. Accordingly a squad of men one  day marched into the big studio and  stood In line.  They had no idea why they had b������en  mustered in so strange ������. place. Without a word of warn4ng the bust was  uncovered, and then, as by one Impulse, the men broke rank, and with  cries of '*M'iss Nightingale! Miss Nightingale!" surrounded the model, ana  with hats off cheered the figure ot tbelr  devoted nurse until the roof rang.  So spontaneous and hearty and so inspiring was the whole scene *that in  after days Sir John Steell declared It to  ���������be the greatest compliment of his life.  LEGAL  >: MA. ST RE .t SCOTT.

A Story of Cecil Rhodes.  Mr. Cecil Rhodes' latest* biographer.  Mr. Hensman, contradicts the story  that Rhodes ever used the phrase "he  never met a man whom he could not  buy." The germ of this fiction, Mr.  Hensman says, "is to be found In the  fact that one day, many yea-ra ago,  when discussing his propos-ed telerraph  wire from one end of A<f_ioa to th������  other, somebody asked him how h������  proposed to carry it across -the Soudan,  which was then under the domination  of the Khalifa. 'Oh, li**a.ve l*t to me,'  Rhodes answered. 'I never mfct the  man yet that I could not oome to in  agreement with, and I a-hail be akle to  fix thing's up with the Khalifa when  the time* comes.'

It. is also equally important to hear  in mind the varieties of giuna and  other birds and animals which it is  unlawful to kill or destroy at any time  and the many other restrictions and  limitations which have been from time  to time incorporated in the Game  Protection Act of British Columbia.

The Mont veal Star of recent date  says: The Impeiial Limited left for  the Coast, today equipped with the  latest life anil labor saving device,, in  the shape of the Trelheway automatic  steam and air couplers. This is a  simple invention hy moans of which  the system of pipes conveying the  steam for car healing purposes. t.the  steam for the signal pipes and thr  compressed air attachment for the  Westiiighoitsehrakesaro.'uitoni.itically  coupled by Lhe mere impact of the  cars.  The invention is a casting which is  clamped inlo the draw bar consisting  of guide horns arranged diagonally  containing the three system of pipes  which when coupled make an absolutely perfect connection' with steam and  air joint and do away entirely with  the necessity of trainmen making the  separate connections of each pipe. The  impact of the cars makes the connection as instantaneous as Lhe car  coupling is made, and Lhe uncoupling  is equally expeditious. So favorably  impiessed with the invention are the  Canadian Pacific Lhat they have decided  to equip all their cars with it. At  present the Tretheway company is  equipping one hundred cars, and is'  erecting shops at Valleyfield for carry..  ing on its business on a large" scale.  The advantages of the new* device are  .      . .*    -   .     s. ,  selfevident; a train of any. number of  cars can instantly be coupled by impact,  there is no going beLween cars by  attendants, no scalding by.steam or  freezing of hose'pipes; there is a saving  of fuel and water on the road, and a  saving it is estimated to the C. P. R-  alone of $25,000 a year in rubber hose  alone. 'In'additionto thu, the geneial  appearance of -the train .is greatly  'improved, as the unsightly system. ot  .rubber hose between cars is replaced  by the perfectly constructed liood.

He is said to  ihave written: "Yes, 'had two severe  attacks ot Presidential fever, followed  ���������by severe chills, but I have fully recovered from both."  At a party in Dublin Castle one of  the young aide-de- camps tried to play  a joke on' Archbishop "Whately. Approaching the primate, the youth said:  "Does Tour Grace know what ic the  difference between an ass and an.archbishop?" "No," ��������� was the grave answer. "Oh," says the youth, "an .ass  ���������has a cross on his -back, while an archbishop has a cross on his breast."  "Very good," said ohe archbishop; "now  will you .tell me what is the difference  -'betweeri-a-youn-j-offlcer-rlike- yourself  and an ass?" ,"I don't know," replied  ,the* youth. "Neither do I," said the  archbishop, and walked away.  Lord Coleridge, Chief Justice of England, was driving*toward his court one  morning in his brougham, when an ac-  'cident happened to it at Grosvenor  Square. .Fearlng'he would be belated,  he called a cab from the street rank,  and bade the Jehu drive him as7 rapidly as possible to the courts of justice.  "And where be" they?" ."What! A  London cabby, and don't know where  the law courts are at old Temple Bar?"  "Oh! the law'courts, is lt? But you  ���������aid courts .of justice."  "John," eald a Scotch minister to one  of hip congregation, "I hope you hold  family worship regularly." "Ay,"  said John, "In the time o" year o't."  "But what do you mean, John?"

It was such a speech as might  toe expected from a young lawyer, and  It was very trying to the court. After  he had finished, his opponent arose and  said: "May it please the court, I intend  to follow the example of my young  friend and submit the case without argument."   Hill lost the case.

It seemed as  though it were not possible for a train  to run north or south through Kentucky without killing either a horse or  cow. And every animal killed, however scrawny, scrubby or miserable lt  may have been before the accident, always figured in the claims -subsequently presented as of the best, blood ln  Kentucky. "Well," said Scott'one day,  after examining a claim, "I don't know  anything that Improves stock in Kentucky like crosslng.it with a locomo-  tl*m-"    An Unfortunate Experiment.  07 OME years ago there lived in Tin-  T^ in a physician noted far and  AS/ wide as a specialist of brain diseases. Men and women came to  hiin from the ends of the earth. With  the development of fortune, for his fees  were in proportion to his prominence,  he cultivated a pleasing taste for those  precious relics of antiquity in which  millionaires alone are privileged to indulge, lie had in his library a collection of costly objects of art. The fame  of his treasures was loud in the world's  ears with the note of his skill. One day  a rich American banker came to consult him about his wife, a confirmed  kleptomaniac. His life was a burden to  him, following her from store to store,  continually guarding her reputation  against the encroachment of her fingers. Though it hid cost him thousands, his wife knew nothlrg. suspected  nothing of her own weakness. Nor  should she ever know if he could prevent it.  "If I brought her here'to consult you  as a physician," said the aflllcted husband, "1 fear she would suspect something nnd it would kill her. if you will  permit it I'll bring her to call on you  as a collector of antiquities. Do not be  disconcerted, however, if during the interview you find her pilfering, slipping  your relics and coins into her umbrella  or pockets. That Is tlie ailment, and. ot  course, whatever she takes will be returned to you at once. My references  are So and So. bankers." This with  much dignity and the production of  documents.  The physician made the appointment,  and ne::t day the couple came. The  doctor brought out his treasures, wonderful coins, antique jewelry, on which  he descanted with much graceful learning. Every now and then the lady  slipped into her pocket or dropped into  her p.ii-a^ol a coin, a jewel, a vase, and  a.s she did so her husband winked at  the doctor to ��������� draw attention to her  theft. When the physician finally gave  the signal that he had learned all he  required, she had accumulated the rarest of his possessions.  "I'll be back within an hour," said  the Chicago banker, "with the things  my wife has taken. Poor, poor girl!"  he burst out. "Doctor, my .fortune, my  life are yours If you can but cure her."  Two hours passed, then three, then  the interval lengthened toT five. The  Physician, rather alarmed, sent his servant "to the American's hotel.- No persons of the name were staying there.  The police were called in, descriptions  given, detectives went forth. They  identified the culprits, who had lime to  make their escape. They were London  pickpockets, two thieves whose characters and depiedations were notorious  ������11 over England.  I  ;.

A READER of "Marmaduke's" letters in London "Tiuth" has sent  liim the following:  "Whilst turning over some old books  In my library last week I stumbled upon the following ' paragraph .in the  'Rural World' of 1S83. As there Is an  epidemic of smallpox in London It has  occurred to me to send this to you, for  some of your medical readers may be  either able, to piove or disprove the  statements it contains:  " 'pnioris and Epidemics.'��������� In the  spring of* 1849 I was in charge of one  hundred men on shipboard,. with .the  cholera among the men. We had onions, which ;a number of the men "ate.  Treely. Those who did so were soon  attacked, and nearly all died. As soon  as I made.this discovery their use was  forbidden. After mature deliberation*  I came to_ the conclusion' that onions  should never be eaten during the prevalence of epidemics, for the reason  that they absorb the virus, and communicate the disease, and that the pro-'  per use for them is sliced and placed  in the sick-room, and replaced with  fresh ones every few hours. . . . After maintaining the foregoing opinion  for 'eighteen years, I have* found the  following well attested: Onions placed-  ln the room where there, is smallpox  -will-bllster-and-decompose-with-great-  rapidity;'not only so, but-will prevent  the spread of the disease. I think that  as a disinfectant they have no equal if  properly used. If needed, the foregoing  (.which I have greatly abbreviated) can'  be attested on oath.'

"We never intended to dictate to  vou how our Post Office should ba  run, and if you come to such a conclusion vou mistook our meaning.  "It U your duty to give to the public in our neighborhood the very best  mail sen ice possible, and if you think  It would answer that end by making  it a monev order ollice we havo no  more to say. The next thing would bo  for us to let somebody else*have it If  it did not suit us.

Our  ������rst quarter cancellations did not  quite amount to 31 and we never got  ia red cent of r'.iat. as there was no instruction come with our commission  (had not got the postal laws) we sent  the whole business to tho United  ' States expecting when it was audited  ���������we would get our pay, but we never  did.  "This was during Cleveland's first  term. Then during his second term in  making our quarterly report wo overlooked flO in stamps that we got from  the Depaitment. Have done that very  thing since and was allowed to mako  the correction that we took no credit  tor which was held against us and persisted in the extent of pressing our  sureties for payment (of course we  would not let them suffer), we borrowed the money and paid, but never  knew why.  "At the time referred to we wero  only experimenting with our country;  did not know tf .;n whether lt would  make an agrii .ltural one or not, but  all doubts in that direction' have happily been dispelled, which is evidenced  by the tralnloads of emigrants that aro  almost daily coming to our States and  adjacent ones. *   ��������� -,t   ������������������ \  "Well, we are like the young preacli-  er, got clear away from the text.

"*  Mr. Arthur Tapes was' showing Mro.  Arthur Tapes tho wonders of mammon's zoology in Wall street at tho  close of business on tho day following  the end of thoir wedding tour.  "Who are all theso young ladies I  see on tho street?" asked Mrs. Tapes.  "Thoy are typewriters from tho  hundreds of offices around here," answered her husband.  That was all that was said on that  phaso of life in tho "street" until Mr.  Tapes and his brido were enjoying  dinner iu their cozy Harlem flat.  "finve you u typewriter?" she asked.  "Yes." ho answered, and again tho  Biibjcct was dropped.  The next morning at a quarter past  ten o'clock Mrs. Arthur Tapes entered  the odlco of Mr. Arthur Tapes and approached a bald headed clerk.  "Is Sir.  Tapes In?" sho asked.  "Yes, ma'am, lie is busy with his  typewriter in the next room." ho  answered, as he pointed with his left  elbow to a partially open door. "Shall  i call him?"  "Xo! 1 will wait," replied Mrs.  Tapes, as she took a seat that gave tho  best possible view of the open door.  It was a most provoking view, for it  gave Mrs. Tapes only a glimpse of .Mr.  Tapes' side elevation as he straightened iiv his chair from a frequent leaning  position, apparently toward tho typewriter. Then the distance was such  that she could hear the sound of his  low voice without catching the words.  In a few minutes she moved her  chair nearer, which did not help hoi-  view, but made flic voice more distinct.  Mr. Tapes leaned so far forward fliat  ho was entirely out of sight, and Mrs.  Tapes showed agitation by rapidly tapping the floor with her right foot.  Then she arose and approached tho  busy smooth pated clerk.  "What is the name of Mr. Tapes'  typewriter?" she asked.  -Hannah." 'TTOT _--  She returned to her chair antl orew  it a little nearer the door as she sat  down. She saw her husband standing,  ant. then disappear as he stepped behind the typewriter.* She heard him  laugh, a low laugh that she had delighted in. Then she heard him speak,  with some emphasis.  "I have had my vacation," he said,  "antl now you must have yours. I  hope you will have as line a time as  we had when we took our vacation to*>  gether last summer."  Mrs. Tapes sprang from her seat)  thrust ��������� the door wide open, and entered. 'Mr. Tapes stood with both  hands affectionately on his typewriter's shoulders, and the two turned  quickly   toward her as sho entered.  "Why, Mary, how you startled me,"  he said. "I didn't expect to see you  here. What a pleasant surprise. Allow me to introduce" my typewriter to'  you. Mr. Hannah, this is Mrs. Tapes.  ���������You see, my dear, Mr. Hannah ha3  grown gray ln Wall street. I had my  initiation in his office, and though he  taught me well, like many others ho  has met with disappointment."  , Mrs. Tapes grasped the old ��������� man's  extended hand, and sunshine of relief  dispelled clouds of suspicion from her  pretty face.  "Oh, do you?" s���������ted the merchant.  "Well, what are you in such a hurry  about?"  "I've got to be. tint's why." was tho  sharp response. "1 left school yesterday afternoon to go to work, and I  -haven't got a place yet, and I can't  afford to be wasting time. If you can't  do anything for me. say so. and I'll ro.  The only place I can stop long is the  place where they pay me for it."  The merchant looked up at the dock.  "When can you come?" he asked.  ��������� "I don't have to come." r- -llerl th������_  youngster. "I'm here now, and I'd  ���������been at work before this if you had  said so."

AN ADOPTED CHICKEN, ^jf.  ������������������Lucky"  Wm   Accldcntly   ltnlcliad  WU������  V n lsntch of Llttlu Chickens.  When I was a little girl I lived on  l farm whero there were a groat many  chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese,  and among them was a brown hen  named Yellow Foot, who wanted vory  much to have a nice family of little  yellow chickens, and sho knew if sho  laid one egg every day until thero waa  twelve eggs, and then sat on them patiently for three weeks, she would  have twelve dear llttlo chicks. So she  laid a nice white egg every day, but  she could never get twelve as tho cook  took tho egg away every morning, so  .Yellow Foot felt vory sad.  Now, anothor hen named. Tufty*  thought it would bo nice to havo lib1'  tie chickens, too; but she was very  smart and found a place away off that  cook didn't know about, and there sho '  l.ild her epfis, and one day she surprised all the other lions by walking  into the chicken yard with twelve "little chicks toddling after hor. Now I  had learned how sorry Mrs. -Yellow  Foot Telt because sho had no llttlu  chickens, when I saw Mrs. Tufty  ���������walking about so proudly, I felt vorj  ���������sorry indeed for Mrs. Yellow Foot.  Well that afternoon something ver/  funny happened. I was walking about  tho fEirni, and I found in thc corner of  a rail fence, a turkey sitting on souk*.  eggs, and running around her was a  lonely little chicken, just out of its  shell, making such a pitiful "peep,  poop." 1 took it up in my apron and  ran and asked one of the men what it  could mean. He said tliat a hen's  egg had by mistake been, put with tho  turkey's eggs, and it takes just a week  longer for turkeys to hatch than it  does for the' hen's eggs. The ' poor  little chick had come out of its shell  a week beforo there was any one to  take care of it. "    .**������������������'   - *  - "When I heard that I thought, "Poor  little chicken, what will you do, for I  don't know how to take caro of you  at all, and it will be a week before,  that ugly turkey gets ready to do it,  and you can not wait until then?"  And then suddenly 1 thought, "Why,  this little chicken is just as old as the  twelve that were hatched this more-'  ing. I'll tako it to the chicken-yar I  -and set it down among them, and  Tufty will take care of it. So I ran to'  the chicken-yard and put it with tlio;  other little chicks, and it ran after,  Tufty like the other.s. But you can't  believe how bad Tufty acted. ' The  minute she heard the strange littlo  "peep" she turned around and stood,  still a moment, and then all her feathers * stuck out, and she bobbed her  head, and then pounced on my noor  little chicken and gave it an awful  pick.   Wasn't it cruel?  I didn't know what to do, I wa3  afraid to go near" Tufty, because sho  would think that I was going to catch  her little chicks, and I knew she  would try to pick me just as sb������ did  my poor little chicken. While I was  thinking she new at it again and gave  it another pick. This time I didn't  stop to think, but I jumped and  caught it, and ran before Tufty could  catch me.

To  keep the atmosphere moist enough for  rapid growth, place a pan of water on  the radiator or stovo and soo that it. ia  siovor empty.-  \ George W. Perkins, an authority on  Iho hygiono of house plants, says that  to grow flowers in a house puriiies tho  air about them, anil that to a certain  extent plants test the air we Breathe.  ,The injurious gases often found in  dwellings affect plants as readily aa  they do people, and lt is generally  ewetded that whero a plant dies from  nhna^elicr or furnace gas tho room I?  uaSSt for human occupation as well.  The first thing, then, to bear ia  tait\xl is that it is necessary to luivo a  Great abundance of fresh air ami sunshine. Pull up tho shades and open  the windows wide. In thus catering  So the needs of the plants the home  ta mado moro cheery, attractive and  Us-ilthful.  ��������� ft is stated by somo authorities that  ueliotropo, mignonctto and mint in  some way increase tho quantity oi  ozone in the air. It this is truu, then  those plants should be, by allmoans,  ftmong tho winter plants of every,  home.  The latter part of September or tho  Beginning 61 October is the best timo  for propagating plants. The weather  then is neither too warm nor too cold  to hinder, the cuttings from taking  root. - -��������� ��������� -  Select a good healthy plant from  which to take tho cutting. If the  branch snaps off clean, without bending, then you have made a gooiV  choice. When the wood of a plant hai  become hardened it is always difficult to get a cutting from it that will  take root quickly. Except in tho  rase of roses, cuttings should always  be taken from the young wood.  Fill a box that is three Inches deep  with ordinary sand, firmly packed,  riant tho cuttings and keep the sand  quite wet until every cutting has rooted. Place tho box for two days In tlio  shade, then move it into tho sun.  The temperature of tho sand should be  kept to about 05 degrees. As the cuttings become rooted, put them in pots,  water freely, place in the shade for a  few days, then set them in tho sun.  and. they ought to grow and thrive  well..  Another way to propagate plants 13  ealled the "saucer system," and is bo  simple that any housekeeper can successfully root as many cuttings as she  may wish to pot. The use of a soun  plate is even better than a saucer, for  it is deeper and will accommodate  more cuttings. Put the cuttings In  close together and.'cover with sand.  Keep watered-well and fully exposed  to the sun. The window sill is a good  place on which to place the dish. A  close watch must be kept on the sand.  Allowing it to get dry even once may  cause the roots to bake and dio.  Now for the soil for the pots. Tt.  (Should consist of one-third leaf mould,  one-third garden loam, one-sixth sand  and one-sixth well rotted manure.  Have a largo box of this soil well  mixed and kept in the cellar. Oft-  times you will want to repot or add  more earth to a plant already potted,  and sometimes it is difficult to get tho  pro, :r earth just when you need it.  Suppose that last May or June you  buried out in tho garden some of youi*  potted plants, sinking-the pots in tho  earth up to the rim. You picked off  the buds to prevent their blooming  before you were ready to bring them  in. Now you are ready to shift tho  plants to larger pots. Dig up the pot,  turn it upside down, supporting tho  plant and earth with the left hand.  With the right knock tho rim of tho  pot on the edge of a chair or table and  the plant, with the clinging earth,  "wiil-fall-outrito-the-hand���������leavlng-tl-.?-  pot empy.

A very simple card  trick, which appears quite wonderful  to the uninitiated, is as follows:  Ten cards from aco to ten are laid'  ta order in a row, beginning at tho  tight and with their faces down. Tho  \iorformer of the trick announces that  he will tell thc number of the cards  which may bo moved by ono of the  company from the right to tho left and-  in addition pick up the card bearing  this number. As wo wish to explain  tho trick.wo will play with the facw  ot tho cards upward; and the original  order (when uncovered) will bo this:  '10    98765     1321  Thc magician then leaves the room  and some ono .who wishes to test tho  extraordinary accomplishment of lil.s  young friend transfers a few card.", in  their regular order from the right, side  to the left, bet four cards be luovctV  then the new order will be this:  4321     10     08705  You will at once see that tho fouv-  spot has become the first card ot tho  row. The first card tolls tho number  of the cards moved. Accordingly tlio  young performer lifts up the first card,  and seeing that it is a four-spot declares, "four cards havo been moved."  Tho art of tho magician consists iu  giving the impression that he known  tho card before ho picks it up. and thu  discovery of the position of the four-  spot is only an additional proof of bin  omniscience. Ho goes out again,  knowing beforehand that whatever  number of cards may bo moved from  tho right side to the left the card  which bears the number will always:  bo found lu the last position ot tho  ton-spot, which at present is thc next,  place after tho four cards transposed  in tho first move, i.e., in the fifth  placo. If no card is moved, tho ten-  spot will remain in its place aud bo  picked up as a sign that all ten cards,  or none at all, which moans the samo  thing, have been moved. But supposa  that three cards have been moved,  then the three will bo in thc fittC  place: ���������  765. 4321     10    98  Thc place of tho card showing tho  number of cards moved will, always  be "one plus tho total number o!  moves," and it Is a matter of courso  that only units count.  After the second move tho card to  be taken in will be 1x4x3���������S, and supposing that five cards aro now moved  the five will appear in the eighth  place. Thus we may continue, and  the uninitiated will wonder what  trick is at the bottom ot the performance, which Is nothing but a very  simple example in addition.  Another trick, which may be called  "mind reading," is also the work of  simple  arithmetic. v  Supppose you request a person ��������� to  think of. any number from 1 to 15 antl  to point out to you the rows in which  his number occurs in* the following  scheme:  1  5  7  9  11  13  15  2  3  6  7 10  11  11  15  4"  5  '6  7 12.  13  14  15  S  9  10  11 12  13  14  15  You will at once know the number  which the person has in'mind when h������  tells you in which horizontal rows it  occurs, for all ,you have to do is to  add together the first three numbers  of theso rows. A close inspection will  tell you that 3 occurs'in the two lines  beginning with 1 and 2; tho number  5 in the lines beginning with 1 and 4,  etc., and 15 in all* four lines beginning with 1, 2, 4, and 8.

Albout noon the sky darkened, and with short warning the  gathering clouds 'burst upon the  city, over Which for three and a  lhalif hours they kept up an aerial cannonade with little .Intermission and  iwltih the utmost fury. The lightning  was Incessant, the thunder deafening,  and ln loss than four hours a month's  average of rain had fallen. Then the  storm ceased, passing nowhere. Apparently, too, it had come from nowhere.- Springing into existence above  the area of London proper, it spent lt-  eelf over the city, and there expired.  This was a phenomenal 'but~pc*-tectly  typical summer thunderstorm.

Unfortunately, as may be Interred,  ���������we are at present unable to predict  iwlth any certainty where a "secondary" may develop, or over what portion of its area the thunderstorm may  burst: and lt may certainly 'be -added  that we cannot predict where lt will  die but. .Nevertheless thunderstorms  have their, special 'haunts; and it Is  possible to know something of their  mode of action."

In the outset these unquestion-  x ably entail great changes In temperature���������a fact which it'will be easy  enough to credit. -^Everyone can recall  how, when the storm is brewing, the  air about us Is warm and close. Then  a loose cloud curtain commonly gathers on the ground, while above lt towers the (heavy - black cumulus cloud,  appearing almost solid, with its compact masses and clean-cut outline.  This is the true thunder -pack, Invariably associated with the lightning, and  ! ' its .very configuration with broad outspread base and white masses heaped  i above, .bespeaks the presence of a cold  ���������upper air stratum which lias condensed  It, arid on which it rests.  But perhaps its most remarkable  characteristic is its motion,-.which Is  almost constantly opposed to the set of  the weather-vane on the ground. Thus  the cloud appears as coming up against  ' the wind; and this is not all, for higher yet,.much higher, there is generally  to be seen a broad stretch of upper  cloud,-.and..somewhere in those upper  regions the hailstones form and fall. A  little later, as we need not be reminded,  the down-rush of-the storm .brings'to  earth some of .the chilli of those upper  level*. " " -  I will now only ask that two or three  very -well-known facts relating to elec-  ' triclty be borne ln  mind.    If a moist  substance be electrified and then made  ' warm Its electric charge rapidly passes  away with steam.   And again, if water that has been electrified is allowed  K4o"escape drop toy drop, then the charg*e  leaks/away, iwltih each drop.    Further,  any "body, -which has <a charge of elec-  | triclty. contains that charge "only, on  the surface./   ' ,     ���������,,".���������, *  '   '  ' Bnough.'  Now, lt telng conceded that  \ the' earth' is * the great storehouse ; of  ���������(electricity,' lt is easy to conceive how  In moist summer -weather, .when steam  / Is i invisibly, rising off the ground, elec-  I triclty may tie passing copiously Into  the  atmosphere,- where  It .will   for  a  ���������while reside on the surfaces of the.mln-  lute drops of water that now begin to  take the form of clouds.   If, however,  . those  clouds  continue  condensing  towards rain the minute, drops soon coalesce  Into  larger,'and'in   consequence  the electricity, still confined to the sur-  I lace, becomes.more "cramped for room.  [Presently, then;  this process "continuing,  the electricity jn  the  clouds can  ���������no longer 'be conta-ned' within -lt, and  ���������breaks away as lightning. ��������� The crash  l of- the thunder follows, causing violent  Iconcussipn of the air. and augmenting  ��������� the discharge of raindrops which thus  i are soon falling in a deluge.  So, far, .then, we have traced in"out-  ���������Jlnethe  circumstances  attending- the  l_burst__ng__.of_lthe___tli_u_n^___storm,'^^  in"a general "way haijptly we regard  only from the standpn'-.t of lower  earth, far, enough reijioVed from the  terrors of the stornTcenter Itself. Occasionally, however, an adventurer has  ���������climbed into. the ". actual path ��������� of the  thunder-pack, and, escaping with his  life;.has been able to*-record 'his ��������� ex-*  periences.  In-the -Andes of* the, great Equator  STr-. "Whimper once-round.himself sud--  denlyln'the midst of a tropical thunderstorm that gathered and' broke,  around him on a lofty peak. "He ana  Mils '��������� guides were sixteen thousand feet  ���������up.'with a clear sky above them, when,  as he puts lt,'"Heaven knows where it  \������an?e from, a hailstorm sent up flying  for-protectlon to the cliffs." There they  were assailed with grape and shrapnel,  In the form of-half-inch stones, that  wounded their faces and broke'off fragments from the rocks around. Twice  they left tnelr refuge, and twice werti  beaten back.  Then followed a lull, and when* the  storm recommenced the hall had given  place ito lightning, which, beginning  'iwlth occasional flashes, -soon "blazed  away ' without H intermission, several  flashes often occurring in a single instant," the ice axes of the party- hissing ominously the while. So much* for  the ' lightning, but of ' thunder Mr.  Whymper states that each flash waa  followed- simply by a single hang,  rwftloh.'he'adds, "is all one hears when  close to the point* of dis'charge."  Compare with the above an account  Xtalren from.the "Times") of ��������� a mountain-storm ln temperate latitudes. This  time the observer was not Mr. Whym-  per-himself���������but the scene ia that particular ground which will always ,be  associated with'his namer-the Matter-  horri. A* lady and gentleman and two  guides were on the summit, and once  again the heaven above waa perfectly  clear.  All in flve,minutes, however, the sky,  darkens, and, as ln the last account,  the -storm is heralded by hall and snow  (ailing so densely that "you could  grasp a handful from the atmosphere,  again), and a shock Is felt In the head.  A repetition of the same unpleasant  phenomena pursued the party until  they hnd climbed down beyond the  limits of the storm.  ���������Many sensational paragraphs are to  be found telling 'how balloons have  been caught ln thunderstorms, the majority of these being too manifestly  overdrawn or untrue. But a genuine  Instance is to be found ln the case of  the younger Green, who once had the  rare fortune to mount completely  through -a thunderstorm ln progress  and emerge In the clear overhead. His  experience was instructive, and clearly proved th'e fact, often insisted on,  that such storms travel over the country much slower than the rate of the  wind that bears them.  It was an August afternoon, with a  violent wind from'thc south-west, when  Mr. Green went up from Frankfort-on-  the-Malno, and at a'height of 4,400 feet  found himself level with the storm  clouds, which wore discharging rain  like a. waterfall, though without the  accompaniment of much thunder and  lightning. Plunging through this,  however, he reached clear sky oibove,  "where a breeze from the north-west  carried him clear ot the storm which  lie thus left, still brooding over the  scene behind, him.  . In view of this record lt would seem  possible for an aeronaut to rise in front  of an approaching storm, and, vaulting  over lt, to descend clear again on the  other side.  I proceed now to tell of an occasion  (vhen,"  failing to  accomplish  this  manoeuvre, I managed to land myself ln  the  very heart   of   one  of    the  very  heaviest storms of thunder and lightning that I'can recall, being, moreover,  compelled hy circumstances to remain  in  this predicament'   long    enough  to  take' somewhat careful stock of these  unusual   surroundings.     As   with   the  mountain storms already described, ln  my owri case It began with a clear sky,  yet  a sky in  which  heavy cloud had  lately dispersed.    It had, indeed, since  noon   been   a   day   of  storms,   which,  however, at past five o'clock In the afternoon, appeared to be clearing away.  Tho   month   was  July,   and  at   that  period of the summer It is common for  severe   storms   to   cease   suddenly   towards evening, even though they may  return again at night.   Thus I, with a  couple of kindred spirits, felt justified  In venturing into the heavens.   Indeed,  It was hard to conceive that there was  any risk ln so doing, inasmuch as- the  sky was clear, and since we must travel with the wind it seemed natural to  suppose that, should a cloud arise anywhere on the horizon, it could but travel'as we -should, and keep Its proper  relative distance from us., It was just  here, however, that our mistake lay.  . r We started from Newbury, England,  with a course at  flrst  over  the. high.  ground In the direction of 'Swindon, but  soon, rising 'higher, we-came-within a*  rapid air stream which sucked us back  over  the. Kennet . valley,-along .the*,  trend of which we thenceforward .were  carried at high speed; and it was over  this valley'that our trouble arose.    It  is commonly said that a thunderstorm  Is attracted by a.river bed, but in reality the case should be differently stated,  the truth being that air streams up to  a considerable-height, and "often bearing clouds, will follow the windings of  any, valley or channel  through which  the lower air is forcibly sweeping.  At any rate, at. the end of the flrst  ten miles, which -,we traveled jin the  brief Interval of twenty ^ minutes, we'  noticed, the rich pistures below us  growing Indistinct with - a blue-gray  mist that deepened and 'broadened, and  seemingly crept on ahead of us. The  real fact, however, was '-that It .was  not being carried, but.rather fol-med  or condensed by a colder air that was"  settling down on the valley. And the  access of this cold air was soon brought  home to us, for, locking upwards, we  saw ahead the sky already blotted out  with a dense black pall, from which a  few stray hailstones were descending,  chilling the air.  The sky immediately above us was  Ul seen on',account of our huge silk  globe. For\mr cratt waa a large one,  ,an*d the cordage having shrunk with  recent showers, the car was .drawn up  somewhat close under - the balloon.  Thus our view of, the thunder-pack���������  coming like the London storm, apparently from nowhere,.and now'already  upon us���������was a go.xl deal restricted;  but as *watched by many onlookers  from our starting-tround, ten miles  away, the stqrm_'was_seen_tb advance  towards- the balloon, swallowing it up  and towering high above it, a black  threatening" mass swelling Into unusual proportions. -   ���������'������   ���������*-   -  y ' :t-.  It proved," as I have said, one of the  worst storms on rc*ord-'ln our, neighborhood. It 'brooded for flve hours over  Devizes, a.few. miles alieadf of .us,, proving what has been already insisted on,  that the. true storm travels far more  slowly than the wind -which bears It.  "And right and left of us the havoc  wrought was widespread and severe.  Close on one side a house was struck  and burned to the ground, while on  the opposite side, just .over the near"  ridge of hills,* two' soldiers were killed  on -Salisbury Plain. '.    ��������� _. ' .,  It'may have been partly owing to'  our circumscribed view of the _sky  overhead, or partly, perhaps, owing to  our rapid forward motion, joined to the  fact of the storm .meeting us with  equal velocity, tfiat we failed to note  the menace of the advancing cloud, as  did those at a distance. Eut I believe  that in reality the fringe of the cloud  formed about us almost before we  were aware of It,, and thus hid the  depths of the vast masses piling  around.      * ,  It is the same-With those who run  into fog at sea.N .They become enveloped ln a general mist which they  cannot determine at close quarters,  though,to onlookers at a distance rthe  shroud that covers them may appear  as a fog bank of clearly defined limits.  I shall always recall how, looking sheer  down, the gulf below us was. as though,  perfectly .empty and transparent, for  I was for some time intently -watching  the green'fields, sharp and clear, slid-.'  Ing under us, while preparing to flre a  detonating fog-signal, of which more  anon. A, little way out, however, all*,  around us and below ua, the air grew  thicker and thicker with the blue-gray  mist I have spoken ot���������that loose cloud  curtain, doubtless, which accurate observers so generally describe as gathering from the earth as the storm  sweeps up.  Hut  ere   we  -were  reluctantly   com*.  tip In a pitiless onslaught of hall,  Which cut and bruised us, rattling with  a furious patter on the silk nbove, and  on the sides of. our wicker-car, bringing down, too, from the upper legions  ���������from what height, who shall say?���������  an Ice-cold down-draught, for which  we were but ill-prepared.  And then the thunder broke out. TJp  to this moment we had had little or no  premonitory .warnings, ln the usual  growling of an approaching storm. Indeed, the thunder, though appalling  enough, proved not the most striking  feature of the grand phenomena we  wero now about to experience���������a fact,  in accordance with the experiences of  the mountaineers, already quoted.  ���������Moreover, the reverberations of the  bomb which I now exploded a hundred  feet below died away with unwonted  quickness. This was remarked by all  our party, and'deserves further consideration. Certainly to our senses thc  rolling of the thunder was not prolonged. But again this may have been  merely that its frequency and Its nearness drowned the after-sound.  For crash now followed crash with  the briefest intermission. It was like  guns opening 'at short range, fast and  furious, as ln some sham fight which  one-may watch at sea. The flashos  which came from-all sides were invariably somewhat above us, as  though from batteries on commanding  heights; and each was followed smartly with a hurst, closely resembling the  solemn boom of heavy ordnance. They  were single shots from masked embrasures.  On one flank would come a fork of  light���������for even in the home of the  lightning the eye could not give it any  other shape���������which for a brief interval  lingered painfully in the eye. Then  bhe crash followed, and the black cloud  closed up; a shot, as it were, with  smokeless powder answered promptly  by, like discharge's from opposite  heights. It was all a wild, terrillc war,  to' which the novelty of our situation  lent a real terror. 'For It was borne in  upon us that this was not a sham fight  'after all, but that all the sky around  was a real battle-ground, and we were  ln Its focus.  Probably the physical distress which  all In some measure feel when there Is  electrical tension in the air was accentuated, and, moreover, there was  the feeling of utter helplessness. The  lofty balloon above was a big object  for the lightning to strike at, and for  ourselves there was not even the soldier's sorry chance of lying down under  lire. Noi- for a while was there the  opportunity for retreat. Instinct  seemed to tell us that for safety we  ���������were wholly in the wrong place. Anywhere on the earth must be better  than the thunder-cloud Itself, where  'there was no hiding.  -' -But a glance Ibelow showed that as  yet there was no haven on which to  alight, for the .whole length of Saver-  jiake Forest stretched .beneath, offering  a peril of its own to sky voyagers in a  high wind. And, so for several minutes  '���������long and a'nxious minutes truly���������we  ���������watched and wondered, and chatted  ,cheerlly, though our hearts misgave us.'  But presently our chance came���������a  chance for the- exercise of judgment,  and, better, for prompt action. There  was a clearing in a margin of woodland, for which we were heading, _ a  field of "roots, bounded at Its far end  by a .bank and double hedge, and with  .this ln vlew-.the whole aspect of affairs  ,-waa changed., .The, storm, abated not  'one whit, but the thunder, might crash  on. -We scorned Its din, and the wicked  streaks' of blinding flame; for we could  act now. .  ��������� ��������� ���������     . i ��������� ��������� ���������      '  Ten minutes later we had negotiated  the turnips and the" hedge, and - our  balloon lay prone along a forest track  on the far side. Around us was gathered a group of countrymen. They  had been stolidly, watching our balloon  in the sky; waiting fon lt to be struck,  and convinced, .from their point of  view, tha't it could not escape the  lightning flashes that fairly enveloped  it.

Has Co-education Failed?  -   Finding the Ghost /  ^Materials for thrilling ghost stories  may be drawn from life, with the advantage that a rational explanation  (comes with'them. Some years ago there  was a lor.e house standing' near a  Southern plantation.- This house nobody would ever take, because it was  haunted and strange noises were heard  In It' every night after dark. Several  tenants tried It, but were frightened  away by the noises. At last one Individual, more courageous than the rest,  resolved _'to unravel the mystery. (He  accordingly armed'himself, and, having put out the light, remained sentry  In'one of the rooms. Shortly he heard  on the stairs, pit-**pat; a full stop; then  pit, pat; a full stop again. -The noise  was repeated several" times, a"s "though  some creature, ghost or no ghost, were  coming upstairs. At'last the thing,  whatever it was, came close to the door  of the room where the sentry  was���������placedf^ai'.d���������he���������flurig*~lt~b'peir  ��������� hurry, skurry, bang; something  went downstairs' with ' a* tremendous jump, and all over' the bottom of the house the greatest confusion, as of thousands of demons rush-  ingjn all directions, was heard!" This  was enough, for one night.'' The next  night the crafty sentry established  himself on the first landing, with a  heap of straw and a box of matches.  Soon all was quiet. Up the stairs again  came the pit, pat���������pit, pat. When the  noise "was close to his ambush, he  scraped a match and set flre to his  straw, which .blazed up like'a bonfire,  revealing a rabbit, which Instantly  scuttled downstairs again 'to rejoin  scores of its comrades, which had got  into the house from a neighboring  plantation. The courageous sentry was  rewarded for his vigil, for he held his  tongue as lo the cause of-the-ghost.  He got the house at a'reduced rent,  and several capital rabbit pies, made  of the ghosts' bodies Into the bargain.  Petty Economy.  President E. J. B ifflngton' of the Illinois Steel Company declares that the  day of petty economies has passed. "A  man advertises for an offlce-bo'y," he  says. "His choice Anally rests between  two bright youngsters, and as the supreme test he asks that they open some  packages lying on a table.' This Is  easy for Charlie. Charlie-takes up a  package, unties four hard knots, unwinds the string, rolls lt up around hia  fingers, ties It Into a loop, and lays the  string ln a safe place. Then, unwrapping the package, he folds .the 'paper  up neatly and lays It on a shelf. By  that time -JVillie, with his pocket-  knife, has slashed the strl.igs on seven  packages, ripped the paper off, and  piled the whole mass of rubbish in the  ���������waste-basket. Forty years ago, of  course, Charlie would hnve got the job:  now, however, Willie Is business manager for the house. Small economies  must be scientific economies. The days  of saving wrapping-twine are gone."  "There is no question that a reaction has set In against co-education," said President David Starr  Jordan , ln his s-peech on "The Education of Women," before the General Federation of Women's Clubs,  in Los 'Angeles,' on Tuesday. 'He  added: "The number of those who proclaim their unquestioning faith- is relatively fewer than would have been ,  the case ten years ago. This change  In sentiment Is not universal. It will  be nowhere revolutionary. Young'women will not be excluded from any  institution where they are now welcomed, nor will the almost, universal  rule of co-education in State Institutions be "In-any", way changed or re-"  versed. ' . . . - The only serious new  argument against co-education is that -  derived from the-fear of the adoption  by universities of woman's standards  of art and science, rather than those  of men; .the fear that ' amateurism  would take the place of specialization <  in our higher, education. * Only men,  broadly speaking, are capable of ob- .  jectlve studies. Only men can learn to  face fact without flinching,' unswayed  by feeling or preference. - The reality  with women Is the way In which the  fact affects her.- Original investigation,  creative art, the 'resolute facing of,  the world as lt Is,' all belong to man's  world, not ait all to that of-the average -woman. That women In college  can do as good work as the men Is  beyond question. In the university  they do' not, for this difference exists,  the rare exceptions only proving the  rule that women excel in technique,  men 'in actual achievement. If instruction through investigation, is the  real work of the real university, then In  the real university the work o'f_ the'  most-"gifted-"_women"!s"���������only- by-play7~  The remedy for feminine dllettantelsin  Is found In more severe training. Cur- ,  rent literature, as shown ln profitable  editions, reflects the taste of the leisure class. The women with leisure  who read and dlscus3 vapid books are  not representative of woman's higher  education. In ' any event this gives  no argument against co-education. It  is thorough training, not " separate  training, which' is indicated as the  need of the times."  At the finish of a discussion with  Tolstoi on the ethics of finance, .his opponent sought to excuse certain methods of commerce and trade with the  familiar argument: "That's business."  "Business?" mused the philosopher,  "oh, yes; I know what business meana  ���������somebody else's money."  The Kaiser has a habit of .pulling bis  ear when he is ln a study.- One of the  royal nephews asked him why he did  lt. "Because I am annoyed," replied  the Kaiser. "And when you are very,  very much annoyed, what do you do?"  persisted the nephew. "Then I pul!  somebody else's," said III.1. Majesty.  Mark Twain, In his latest story, tells  of a group of miners who were discussing Sherlock Holmes nnd his majestic  methods. After eaeh in turn had paid  his tribute of respect, Ferguson, "with  a deep awe In his voice," ventured: "I  wonder If God made him." There was  no response for a moment, then Ham  Sandwich said reverently: "Not all at  one time, I reckon."  Mr. Carnegie once listened to a colored preacher's sermon In a little village church in Georgia, and was so  much affected by the appeal for funds  that he dropped a'fifty dollar greenback in the collecting box. Standing  in the pulpit the preacher counted up  the offerings; then, clearing his throat,  he said: "Breddern, we has been greatly blessed by dish yer contebutlon. We  has heah fo' dollahs an' fo'ty cents;  an' If" (he looked suspiciously at the  donor of libraries), "an' if de fifty dollar bill put 'In by de white gemman  with de gray whlskmhs tu'ns out to be  a good one, we Is blessed a whole lot  moah."  One of the humorous incidents of the  political campaign now drawing to a  close is the joke perpetrated by n  Western Ontario candidate who Is opposing the sitting member.
