Mr. Rosenhei got* stated  lhat theie was i.o difficulty in interesting eastern capital in legitimate mining  in BiilNh Columbia. It fact lhat it  was far easier to obtain money foi  Biitish Columbia than for investment  in the States. The new company has  been organized in the middle of a mining rnniiiiuiiily at Calumet, who were  enlhusiiislic as to ils prospects. In  connection with it, on the twentiet b of  Ihe present month an excursion party  of hiiMiiei-s men fiom the cities  mentioned will leave for Nelson, from  hereto inspect the mines of the district.  They have clisu tered two cars for the  journey, and their visit will be one of  I he heat advertisements the district  his icceived.' There was a stionger  demand thun ever for developed pio-  pi-rtiea in the east, and the Eva, whiih  h.is heen taken over by his company  suited the business men of the cities  lie hud visited exactly. The party  who aie coming will he composed  ol directors, shareholders and under-  writeis of the Calumet and B. C.  and directors of the Northwestern  Development syndicate. In the city  yesterday many complimentary remarks were passed regarding the  enterprise of the Mines Exchange who  have already succeeded in interesting  so much eastern capital in good properties in this district. From the  time" Mr. Rosenberger organized his  first company here a couple,of years  ago to the present,-all who have taken  stock in the .'various enterprises ban-  died by himself and Mr. Musselman  havo received" good returns on their  investment, and in a number of ways  the district has benefitted by them.  In handling only the best class of  properties they have .already won an  enviable reputation.  ���������Remember the Handkerchief Sale  and entertainment of St. Andrewjs  Willing Workers for Thanksgiving  afternoon and evening in Selkirk hall  RAILWAY YARD  Personal Paragraphs Pertaining to Railway Men Picked up  By the Herald Man on His  Daily Rounds  D.

The  car is being built at the St. Charles car  works, and is equipped with everything modern.*  A wreak occurred near Field on  Friday night in ."which three engines  were more or less smashed. A freight  running into Field collided ^*ith a  light engine which was - backing up.  The driver on the light engine iinme*  diately reversed" her, opened "the  throttle and with (hose on board  jumped.' The_ light engine, with'no  one to guide her, ran into a third  engine at the Field depot. Fortunately  no one was injured.'    ,  .  A despatch, from , Montreal is totlie  effect that.' the -C. V. R. is'in need of  more men.- The need of an extra effort  in the west has had _ the effect of  depleting the regular service some  what, engineers and firemen have.had  to he taken from their regular routes  and in some cases outside men have  had to Ue employed. The sudden need  overwhelming almost in its character,  has increased the demand for telegraph  operators, and the company state that  it will he. prepared to take on a  considerable number of new operators  tor engineers and firemen, but chiefly  itdesiies additional telegraph operators  while the harvesting and marketing of  the crop is in progress.  THE V. V. & E.  GROSSING  Deputation from Grand Forks  Waits on the Hon. Minister of  Railways and Enlists his Influence in Their Behalf.  For some time past the V. V. it E.  have been endeavoring to gain an err  trance to Grand Forks by running a  branch from their Cascade-Republic  line, about three miles distant. In  order to do this, however, it is neces  sary to cross the Kettle Valley line  from Grand Forks to Republic. The  matter is now before the courts but so  far the V. V. & E. bave failed to  obtain the desired crossing.  The matter is one in which the  citizens of Grand Forks are vitally  interested as buisness in that city, the  Hkbai.d is informed, is practically at  a standstill pending tbe decision of the  courts in this matter. The Grand  Forks Board of Trade learning of Hon.  A. G. Blair's intended visit to British  Columbia, wired him an invitation to  visit Grand Forks for the purpose of  looking into the matter. Mr. Blair,  however, was unable to spare the time  to make the trip and the Board of  Trade thereupon sent a deputation to  wait on him while passing through  Revelstoke for the purpose of explain-  ing the true position of affairs. The  deputation consistee Neil McCallum,  mayor of Columbia; Chas. Cummings,  of Grand Forks, and J. B. Henderson,  of Grand Forks (architect of the new  school buildings). These gentlemen  went up the line Monday morning as  far as Glacier and returned with Mr.  Blair on No.l. They pointed out to the  hon. gentleman the benefit to be  derived from the "V. V. & E. entering  Grand Forks, not only by that city  but by the whole country". Mr. Blair  inforined the deputation that the  matter had -never been, properly,  representedItp the Railway Committee  as'they understood ic to- be siniply n  fight between -two' rival . railway  companies, and assured them that so  far as he was concerned hits' influence  would be used towards having the  matter settled in the way desired hy  the people of Grand Forks. As the  decision of tlie' court rests upon the  recommendation of the Railway committee the deputation feel confident  thnt with such un assurance from Mr.  Blair their wishes in the ma.ter will  be attained. In order to have.the  matter immediately attended to.    Mr.  OCTOBER  The city council met Friday morning  when the' important deal,between the  Revelstoke Water, Light & Power Co.  and'tlie^city was consummated. The  deed,transferring the company's pro*  perty was duly executed and the city's  cheque "-tor $05,500 passed into the  lianas of Mr. W. Cowan, who repre*  sen ted the company.  Mi*. R. Gordon was engaged by the  city as manager of the works at a  salary of $125 per month, and Geo.  Lembke was engaged as electrician at  a salary ol $100 per month.

Grand Forks is well pleased with the  work of the deputation and a revival  in business is expected immediately.  Already it is intimated that the  iSnowshoo Co., of Phoenix, have  decided to build their smelter at Grand  Forks and a line site has been granted  l>y the city.  Lardeau's Big Advance  "The L'udeau country has made  greater advances this year than in any  two previous years of its history," said  Judge James XV. Miller recently on  arriving from the Lardeau district,  where he has spent the entire summer  in the interest**; of the various  companies with which he is identified.  " The Canadian Pacific railroad," he  continued has done twice or thrice the  business it expected to do when the  line was under construction, wliich is  an excellent indication of the country's  advance. There has been'a very large  iinnort'ition ,of machinery of every  description, and supplies. More rich  strikes have been made in old proper'  tit's and moie valuable new properties  local td than was ever the case in any  one year pi eviously, and the conditions  .ire decidedly favorable,  " The operators on the D.incan river  side of lhe Trout Lake divide expect  transportation facilities next spring.  The Great Northern, or. interests  closely allied with Mr. Hills, have had  th"ir engineer-Mr. 'Gray���������in the  Duncan wlley all season. .They have  pui'chased-lhc timber limits held.by J.1  J. Hill and have-staked a number of  valuable water rights on the Duncan.  I have seen these water notices in the  record oflice and my men found the  location jotices at many points. Mr.  Gray spent a week in the Old Gold  camp -and remarked to ' me on one  occasion when the trantportation  problem was under discussion, ��������� I was  surprised myself, and I will surprise  the people in the office when I show  them the easy grades to be secured on  the Duncan and demonstrate how  cheaply a road can be constructed.' I  have not been able to secure a djeflhite  statement from the Great Northern  people as to when construction will lie  started, but I am satisfied that it will  be next spring and that an electric  road will be built."  Judge Miller-is .actively identified  with the management of the Old Gold,  Primrose, Guinea Gold and Marie  Mar ilia companies, all operating in the  OId~GoId~"caibp .on the Duncan river  side of* the divide. He states that  excellent progress has been made with  the development of all four properties  during the past season, and that tha  Guinea Gold in particular has shown  up splendidly. On the Old Gold the  principal work during the summer  was the driving of a 321 foot tunnel to  tap the vein at a vertical depth of  some 200 feet. A crosscut was run to  intersect the ore and this has almost  been attained. In the upper workings  a shaft was sunk some twenty feet on  thc vein now being tapped at depth.  It was shown to carry eight to 14  inches of solid ore averaging $100 per  ton.  In company with Dr. Gifford, of  Minneapolis, managing director of the  Marilla and Guinea Gold companies,  Judge Miller brought out a shipment  of tifteen tons of ore from the Old  Gold camp. The ore will lie sent to  the Trail smelter for test pur_>oses  Judge Miller states that the rever-  beratory smelter at Ferguson is not  yet in operation. In reply to a query  on the subject he stated that there was  a disposition in the district "to believe  that the plant would not successfully  treat silver-lead ori>s in its present  bhape.���������Rossland Miner.

So  ������f we take this word of St. Paul at its  first meaning we have thc thought that  tn the Bible we have God's great poem  Intended to set before us    a character  of God'i    creation���������the:  ideal man    in  ���������Jesus  Christ.    And  just a.s such   eliar-  iicters as the "Aedipus" of Sophocles, or.  the "Hamlet" of Shakespeare uike u|ion  themselves a. living form    through  the  Inventive genius of the poet,    so   does  this  ideal  inan  of  the  New  Testament  become an actual, existing as a standard  toward ' which all  human effort at  holy  living  i3  to  be directed.    It is a  'oew creation, never before seen on the  earth ; but so arc wc, each of us, ufter  Him,  new creations,  with  the  capacity  of realizing this ideal in ourselves.

But as  we read our Gospel again with thc  thought that God has created us each  and all with this ideal in His mind,  and has put into us the capacity and  ���������will give us the power to become sons  of God every one, wc see another character rising up bcnind uio first, and following it as the shadow follows the  wubs'taiice, reproducing the substance in  & vaguer form and on another plane, bo  that it come.*) withm man's reach, wc  find tha-t that character is the ideal  .man -under the limitations'.'of* a human  ���������condition. The appeal of the Gospel is  a. call from the heart of God to our  hearts to become shadows of Jesus. Tie  has jjiven us this wonderful poetic' character in the concrete, and to help us reproduce it in ourselves He has "or-  dainc-d good works for us to walk in."

Two Europeans  bad preceded mo on the HoroHBo's, so  there was considerable natural history  on tap when I arrived, and we rapidly  acquired more, One can't live nunong  .snakes without studying them; they  Insist upon It.   .   .   .  liach evening I killed nn hour or so  of the monotony by walklns up and  down the path In front of the bungalow. A big cat was my usual companion, Ills method of Introducing  himself to my notice was generally ub-  nipt. He would Ile In wait, nud, as 1  came along, spring out upon mc, alighting ngnlnst one of my logs. At other  times he would lie on his back in the  path and claw at my feet ns 1 passed.  One evening, just after turning Into  the path from tho bungalow, I felt  something; soft and yielding against  my foot. Thinking it was "Billy," I  gave the mass a gentlo push. As I  shifted the something I saw a twisting  gleam of white, not at all like the soft  gray of Billy's fur. Of course I knew  what that meant. Jumping back I  brought my walking-stick down on the  twisting thing, and yelled for a light.  The servants, came running from the  cookhouse with a lantern, and I saw  that I had laid out a most villainous  dabola. One touch from the catlike  fangs on my cotton-hosed instep, and  within an hour I would have been  dead.  One  of   our  party   had  occasion   to  visit a Mr. Savage, a half-caste landowner on the other side of the Island.  He went in a boat, and while the coolies were bringing up his traps went up  to the bungalow.   He was sitting in a  big  chair  on  the veranda,  talking  to  Savage,  when he  felt something drop  from the leaf roof on to his shoulder.  Leisurely   he   started   to   rise   to   see  what had fallen, when the other man  cried out: "For God's sake don't move  ���������keep  perfectly still!"    Dunlop knew  what   that meant.    Stealthily  the  old  man took a Burmese dah (sword) from  the wall, and, catlike, crept toward the  white man with the thing on his shoulder. ���������:   Within    striking    distance'":���������. he  paused, and raised the dah high in the  air to cut the thing in two with .one  swift    downward    stroke.     Then    his  nerve, rattled and tugged at for sixty  years  until  it  was  weak,  failed  him.  and  the   sword    clattered    from    his  numbed fingers to the floor.; ','My God!  I can't do it," he whined in a broken  voice, and reeled back against the wall,  where, he stood staring with weak eyes  ��������� af the sahib and his.-burden.  V Dunlop' neither moved nor spoke; his  only  safety  lay  in   keeping, perfectly  stlll-rimotionless.' It might be minutes,  or a thousand years: they would have  to wait till the boatmen came.   What  would happen then he could not say.  He   could   feel   the     clinging,   pulling  thing on his right shoulder. There; was  an undulating pressure that told him  the; h������*ad  of  the: snake  was  swayinw  back  and  forth just  above  his   neck.  Then the song of the Madrassl boatmen as they came swinging along with  his luggage broke upon his ear.7 Those  gin-thickened    voices,    carolling    th'-'  coarse refrain to the7 time of the measured  trot,  were  angel voices.    What  would  the  muddle-brained   coolies  do.  he wondered.V,If Emir Ally, his trusted  servant,   saw   the   thing,   it   might  be  well; he had nerve and judgment even  close  to  that of  a  sahib.    Emir  Ally  was in the lead.   When he came to the  steps Savage jerked but an '.'expression  that called his attention to the tableau.  Gathering  his  loongy   tight  about  his  loins, he slipped along the veranda like  a-shadow, grasped the fallen dah, and.  'p'oiSing his black lithe body for a swift,  strong     stroke,     brought    the     sword  through   the  air   with  a  swishing  cut  that   laid  a  full-grown, cobra  in : two  neat pieces'almost at the feet of the  man who had waited.���������W..

Is this  KWiinmlng habit a throw back or reversion lo an antecedent state In the  history of this lnnd-llvlng species, or  Is It to be regarded as an example of  a direct and sudden adaptation to a  new environment? Doubtless Professor  Lloyd Morgan will debate this question at length. It certainly has an  Important bearing on certain obvious  biological problems.  A discovery of great Interest to antiquaries was made recently by workmen engaged in excavating one of the  two reservoirs now being constructed  ; tor the East London Waterworks Company along the course of the Lea. On  a bed of sandy silts in the "Lock- ���������  wood" Reservoir, a "dug-out" boat or  canoe was brought to light. In the  north-eastern corner of the reservoir,  also, were found, five feet below the  surface and between twenty and thirty  feet to the west of the original bed of  the river, Lthe remains of a supposed  Viking ship, clinker-built of oak, about  fifty feet in length. The planks are  fastened with iron nails.  It has been found that certain  prawns, common along the coasts of  England, change their color at least  twice every: 24 hours in order to harmonize with the stronger or weaker  light prevailing near the surface or in  the deeper water. As evening approaches these flsh lose their distinctive; day colors, and all assume' a  transparent azure hue. ; The -change  begins with a reddish glow, followed by  a green tinge which gradually melts  into blue.���������'..: The day and night change  has become so habitual that specimens  kept in perpetual light or perpetual  darkness nevertheless undergo the  periodic alteration of color.

Mr. Johnson knew the young man, but,  apparently, he did not allow his familiarity to influence the case. He  asked him one or two questions as  easy as the alphabet or; the multiplication table, and then very severely  demanded:  "Young man,  can  you  mix  a    good  brandy Julep?"  "I think I can, sir," was the reply.  "There,"   pointing  to  the  sideboard,  "are the Ingredients, sir.    Now, let me  nee what you can do."  The candidate approached and used  hia finest touch and sense of selection  in compounding the tonic. Then, topping It oft artistically with a fresh  mint, he presented It to his examiner  Mr. Johnson gave the case his best  care and patience, and finally, when  the bottom of the generous glass had  been*reached, he looked at the younu  man admiringly and announced that  he had  pa-ssed.  Another atory is told of a Judicial  district In Florida -where, before the  era ,of railroads and owing to tho  numerous creeks and rivers, there had  to be frequent fording of streams Ir.  order to make good time between the  country towns.- ',The candidate pre-  ���������ented himself before the judge, who.  after looking at the young man a. few  moments and taking in his measure,  asked:  "Can you ride?"  "Tea,   sir."  "Do you own a horse?"  "Yes, sir."  "Can he swim?"  "Yen,  sir."

A traveller for.a; diamond' house  was talking shop the other evening,  and, speaking of gems, said: "The most  overworked expression used by the unsophisticated ... and. deeply .Impressed  diamond purchaser; is, 'It actually looks  as if it glows of Itself.'

He  then extinguished all the light'In the  shop, and as soon aa my eyes had become accustomed to the darkness I  saw the diamond; emitting a soft radiance of Its own like a very pale glowworm.

The  bishop, traveling through Louisiana  some years ago, addressed Inquiries to  his fellow-passengers with a view to  obtaining Information regarding the  orchards and fruit interests of the  State. "Do you raise pears In Louisiana?" inquired the bishop. "We do,"  replied the Loulsianian, who was a  better authority on poker than on  horticulture, "if we have threes or  better."  A woman, who Is of high social distinction in America, was presented to  the Kaiser at some dinner that was  not attended with royal state. She  was talking to him when she was offered a famous German salad. It was  handed on her right and the Kaiser  was on her left, which put her in . a  predicament. She did not dare turn hei  face from the emperor to help herself  to the salad. The situation was too  much for her. The emperor, seeing  the condition at a glance, looked at  her for an instant and laughed, as ho  said: "A Kaiser can wait, hut a salad  can not."  ; George  Moore,  the author and dramatist,   once  had  a  play  accepted  at  the   Odeon   In   Paris.

The .door-keeper  did  not  know   him,   and   asked   for   his  name  an^Jbusiness. "I am the English authoi  whose  play  has  been  accepted here,"  said Mr.  Moore;   "I wish to see     the  manager." : The door-keeper Went into  the manager's7room and said:; "There's  an English gentleman at the door who  says that you have just accepted his  play,  and wants to see you."

FO!3uE, attorney-  at-lnw, ft Lancaster, Mo., related tht following legal Incident; "One of the most original  lawyers I ever met In my life was  'Sam' Dysart, who some twenty years  ago was a resident of our county. lie  is some kin to Major 'Ben' Dysart, of  your town. 'Sam' was a born humorist,  and could have made his fortune in the  lecture field. When he lived up our  way ho was engaged on one occasion  to defend a lot of boys and girls  charged with disturbing a religious  assembly out In the country, by 'laughing and giggling' Is the way the Information read. The case was tried beforo  Squire A. C. Bnlloy, a good old man,  who hns lonn slnco gone to his final  reward. Like all cases ot the sort, It  attracted nn Immense crowd from tho  vicinity ot the alleged outrage. T. C.  Tndlock prosecuted, nnd ho was Instructed by the church people to spare  no pains to convict tho disturbers, who  were very much frightened by being  dragged Into court. All the defendants  were children of good families, hnd It  was their tlrst orfenco. Thoy candidly  admitted they laughed out in church,  and tho Stato Insisted that by their  own mouths thoy wore condemned.  Brother Tlce Spears, a righteous man  of Puritanic type, was the main prosecuting witness. He had conducted the  services, and he testified that his peace  was sadly disturbed by the unseemly  behavior of the 'rioters.' After he told  his story in chief he sat down with  clasped hands waiting for the defendants' attorney to begin on htm. He  didn't have long to wait. The examination began like this:  "'Brother Spears, you led the meet-  In' last night?'  1 "'I did, sir.'  "'You prayed?'  " 'I  did,  sir.'  " 'And preached?'  " 'I tried to.'  " 'And sung?'  " 'I sung.'  " 'What did you sing?'  "'"There is a Fountain Filled with  Blood," ' sir.  "Here Mr.:'.*Dyaart pulled a hymn-  book from his pocket and handed it to  the witness, with the remark':  " 'Please turn to that song, Brother  Spears.'  "The witness did so.  " 'That's what you sang that night?*  " 'It is, sir.'  " 'Well, stand up and sing It now, If  you please.'  "'What!'  " 'You heard what I said, Brother  Spears.'  " 'But I can't sing before this sort ol  crowd.' o  " 'Brother Spears,' with much apparent indignation, 'do I understand that  you refuse to furnish - legitimate evidence to this jury?'  " 'N���������no���������but, you see '  " 'Your Honor,' said Mr. Dysart, ']  insist that the witness shall sing the  song referred to just as he did on the  night of alleged disturbance. It is a  part of our evidence, and very important. The reason for it will be disclosed later on.'  "There-was a long jangle between  the lawyers, and the court finally ordered the witness to get up and. sing.  " 'And, mind you, Brother Spears,'  said Dysart, seriously, 'you must sing  it* just as you did that night; if you  change a note you will have to go back  and do it all over a-jain."  "The witness got up and opened the  book. There is a vast difference between singing to a* congregation in  sympathy with you and a crowd of  court room habitues. Brother Spears  was painfully conscious of the fact,  i'ou know how those oldtime* hymns  ai-e sung In the backwoods settlements?

The panther fisherman drew up to  tie feast, and as he, ate talked.  "When I was a boy of sixteen ov  thereabouts," he said, "my father died  In Tennessee, and I went to live with  an.uncle in the Ozark mountain country of Arkansas. My uncle's farm was  in a country where the catamounts  grew on trees, and we had a lot of trouble with them and other varmints keep,  ing them off the sheep. We had only  ahout a. hundred, and couldn't afford  tu lose any, so we fixed up* a log cabin  near the sheep sheds, and I used to  sleep there with a gun handy for any  marauders that might come along. A  catamount is a mighty sharp animal,  and I never got a shot at one that did  any harm, so I began to study up some j'  plan to get a scalp, and I finally con- .  eluded to try fishing. j  '.'I got three big sturgeon hooks���������you   !

When I had my tackle ready  ';  I took a piece of fresh meat and buried .  the hooks In it just deep enough* to  catch hold easy when it was time for.  them to begin business.

"Meanwhile, our mother met, a young  baronet, named Henry Cope, who'ftll  In love with her beauty, and they were  flfiarrlcd. We. were brought to this  house as our home; this very room was  our nursery, and we were happy  enough until Vincent Cope, our;half-  brother, was porn, '  "With ��������� his birth everything was  changed. Our step-father, who. had  never liked us, turned against us almost with hatred; even our mother  took her love away from' the poor gypsy twins, who recalled the'sordid past,  and gave it to the child who was born  to good fortune. Sintra and I were devoted to each other; she perhaps caring more for me than I for her���������as Is  the way sometimes with a 'brother and  sister; and she hated the new baby as  only a gypsy child can hate. One day,  when Vincent was* about two years old,  she struck him, so that he fell and cut  his forehead. And this act sealed our  fate.  ��������� "Our step-father pronounced life unendurable while we remained under his  roof, and we were to bo sent away.  The question was, where, for we" were  almost too young to go to a bonrdlng-  sohool; besides, we were so Inseparable  that It would have been cruel to part  us; and neither our mother nor her  husband had the active wish, I think,  to* be cruel.  "A circumstance trifling In Itself decided our Whole future. A child. Ermyntrude D'Esterre, a cousin of ths  Copes, who hnd been brought here on  a visit by her. parents, had taken a  great fancy to the two gypsy children.  When her father and mother,- whose  home was at Arrlsh Mell Court (which  you must know well) heard that we  .wero in disgrace with our step-father,  they Invited us to pay them a visit and  ���������hare the teachings of their daughter's  governess. We managed to win our  way, somehow, Into the hearts of our  protectors; instead of "paying a mere  visit we continued to live at Arrlsh  Mell Court, and were as much ohildren  of the house as Ermyntrude herself.  **So we grew up together. I was not  a'strong hoy, and Instead of heing sent  to a public school I had a tutor.- Ermyntrude and Slntra and I were never  an hour apart; and not a cloud arose  between us until Sintra and * I'.'."were  seventeen, Ermyntrude thirteen. Then,  mature beyond my years, I knew that  I loved Ermyntrude, not with the  brother-love.* I ���������calmly,'gave. Sin tra,-.but  afeellng very different.';.; At last I. was  going to travel with my tutor, and before leaving I told; Ermyntrude what  wasln my heart for Iier. She voweu  that she loved me, too, -and promised  that when she grew up she would not  marry anyone-out mc'   2-AvanteiTher  to prove this promise.   I wanted to be  sure "that ahe'belonged  to me;   and I.  persuaded her to let" me tattoo on tier'  arm the mark of a heart, which was to ���������  be thefac-simile of -one on mine.  "She was afraid  and unwilling, but  consented   at  last;   and   I   made    the i  hearts as'best I taiew.how, ;in.my amateurish way, with a purple ink which'  I .bought from a .man I knew. . -   ,  " "While I was fashioning the heart on -  Ermyntrude's arm, copying .each de-  ���������tall^from my own, with my sleeve rolled  up that I might have .the model ever  foeforemy 'eyes, .Slntra looked in upon  us. -She was furious with jealousy .that  Ermyntrude should share something  with me that was .denied .to .her.

I knew nothing .of its .existence until Ermyntrude .wrote me that,  since Sintra now wore "the symbol, she  had ceased to value,hers, as,before.  "For years, though the two families  lived In-Dorsetshire, not fifty jni'les.dls-  tant from each other, we saw little -of  Vincent Cope,' for our mother-died,-and  the boy and his faiJher went abroad .together. It was while I was traveling  with my tutor ."that we met���������my'half-  brother, his father and X. Only the  day after the meeting, which took placs  in Switzerland, Sir Henry Cope had an  accident in climbing. He lay ill for a  few weeks, and finally died, so that  Vlnoent became Sir Vincent, though he'  was but a boy.  IMy tutor, who was a-good fellow,  made himself very useful to Vincent,  und we all went back to England together, taking the body - of .the dead  baronet with us. After'thisi Vincent  and I remained friends, though Sintra'is  continued dislike of him kept us from  accepting" his*Invitation to share his  home. Arrlsh Mell was tihe home of  our hearts, and our friends there  seemed no more; desirous of sending us  away than we were of going. But Vincent and I went up to Oxford together,'  and in those days he had our three portraits painted, to be hung in the It-,  brary in this house, where you may  have seen" them. .   -  "Vincent was, sent down from Oxford  on account of an audacious prank.. _ I  Tle'rt"at"a'b"out-th"^sa5ne"t"lme because" of  a severe .accident at football; He went  abroad with friends; I back to be  nursed into, health at Arrish Mell Court.  "By this time I showed signs of latent talent as an artist. Ermyntrude's  people, who were simple and unmer-  cenary, believed that I might make my  way In the world," and when they found  out that' we "had loved each other for  years they consented to our engagement. %        i.  ; "Then, as Ermyntrude and I both  ���������longed'.for'Italy,-and she would have  plenty of money; for us both, lt was/arranged that-we should be married without delay. Ermyntrude was twenty, I  twenty-four.  "I was perfectly happy, despite Sln-  tra's Jealous depression.

"When Vincent had been In the house  for three days she begged me to release  her from her engagement, eleventh  hour though "it-was; alleging no /reason  except that she did not care for me as  she had thought.

I believed that I hated ���������  Ermyntrude  as  much  as  orice  I  had  loved her; and I thought of nothing but  some way of making her fool as I felt.  "Perhaps   If  her   parents,   who   had  been llko father.and mother to me, had  lived, I would after all have done nothing against their daughter.

CHAPTER XXV.  Danger.  For a moment the speaker was silent.  He had forgotten me,' and gone back  into the past. But my patience was  Short, and ln my eager Wish to hear the  sequel, I broke in upon his reverie.  "The chunce enme���������you took it," I  prompted him, "What wus It that you  did?"  Vincent and  Ermyntrude were   at'  Arrlsh Mell Court," ho said, in a weary, '  toneless voice.

One day the child ran away from ;  his  nurse,  who "was -gossiping with  a.  friend, and was not seen again.    But'  his 'little hat and toy he had heen playing with were found hours afterwards  close by the water on a lonely part of  the sea .beach,; a mile or two from the '  sates of ArrUh'Mell Court. '  "From that day to the night on .which  you tell me she died,; Ermyntrude be-  ���������ieved* her son had been drowned; and  that I .was his murderer. There was  no proof of any kind, against Sintra or  me;;we had managed the affair far too  carefully for that. But we were known  to be in the neighborhood, and: It was  ;asy to imagine the1 suspicion in Ermyntrude's-.mind. For a time I rejoiced  In it. I wished her to think that her  great sorrow had come through the  mart, she .had injured, yet to feel that  Bhe was; able; to do nothing���������nothing "  "You.have hot told*me'yet what-yoa  did with the boy,',' .1 -breathlessly reminded him.  "The plan was Sintra's," 'he answered, dully. ' "It was all her idea  from the first���������for she can hate well,  and feel no relenting. She hated Ermyntrude first for taking my love, and  afterwards for throwing It away. She  proposed that the petted darling of  those who had spoilt my life should  "grow up as a child' of the streets���������a  waif, a vagabond. And there seemed a  certain poetic Justice, to my mind,' ln  the thought.". We. would lose sight of  him ourselves,, she said, so that, In no  .circumstances whatever, would lt be  possible for us to restore the child to  his parents. -  - "I agreed.

One lea ture of  the book is the'autho'r'k-'-'discusisioii of  had, on. the ".whole, defence of the British  soldier,'ofllcer and privato. The opening chapter, "Tiie Machine," contains tho  following suggestive passages:���������  "The work luis increased tenfold, but  the man-power remains the same, barring makeshifts, which have served llieir  turn more from thu .intrinsic fineness of  their material than .'from happiness of  design. ,      '-.

I think'we may  dismiss any momentous increase of the  army as at least unlikely. But the  second would be ab''miracle, because of  the miraculous material of which our  engine is built. The unbreakable, inexhaustible, pliable British oilicer and private soldier, though tliey do so inucli,  carry within them tho ioice to do with  manipulation ten times what tliey do  neglected���������to think, instructed, with an  astuteness of wliich, untaught, no gleam  has been shown to the casual observer���������  the force to bo, in fact, the many times  "better soldiers they must he to cope  with the increased work which confronts  them." i  Discussing the private soldier^,"Lines-  man" declares that we "find him thus:  the finest man and the worst soldier of  all the race of lighting men." Elaborating this thesis, he siiys:���������'  "In South Africa our men showed  many qualities whose chief surprise to  a detached observer was the utter lack  of surpi iae they elicited from thc woild  at large, and. more striking if less curious, from their exhibitors" They were,  apparently, a foregone conclusion. . .  Endurance, steadfastness, hiavery, temperance more marvellous in.victory than  in defeat, cheerfulness when the facc'of  events bore only the giim stare of disaster, callousness when one would havo  thought that every nerve was being  seared by the hot iron of war���������all these,  and many more did our soldiers display  to friends and enemies, not spasmodically, with sudden lurid blotches on the  batUC.*pi';tiirc,_liiit invariably, a smooth  magnificent -monochrome, immeasurably deep, and to one who lo\ es his kind  indescribably beautiful. . ~. .

Lie among  the supports behind the firing line, listen to the bullets wailing'and "whistling  overhead, and ' hammering querulously  for admission at your, little stone shelter, and to-the great shells ��������� thudding  and crashing near you; you may, being  an educated man, wonder ut thc base  uses to which your" education is being  put, and pity those who have it not to  sustain them in this hour of need. But  peep o\er your,Avail (you do it at your  peril), and you will swiftly inherit the  earth by being reduced to "the ranks of  the'meek. Along-^. the steep hillside  sprawl 'soldiers'in every position of discomfit! t, Tom. Dick and Hairy in tho  extremity of peril. Tom is perfunctorily reading, a well-read letter from his  mother; Dick, careful soul, wearily casts  .up once more I113 little cash account,  kept* in a booklet a degree more'grimy  than himself; Harry'is endeavoring the  impossible, lo cook'a scrap, of h.icon on  a stone" over a ���������fire'of cartridge paper.

"Filially, our lighting men must think.  .    .    .   1 do not ask for even 'individuality' except in a most restricted sense.  In any wider one it is actually undesirable  i'or  troops  whose  whole genius  is  ���������the poworfulone of united'effort under  one control.    Boer  tactics have  thrown  a"false glamour over solitary tactics; th;  Boers themselves have owed ti-eir defeat  to  the  inherent and   fatal  weakness  of  such tactics.    And had our troops been  in possession of the weapon I would ask  ior them, the irresistible one of thought,  (he shrift of the selfish Dutch free-lances  would   have   been   half  as  short  again.

As I have written elsewhere,  a Boer .marksman is a dolt compared to  an   ordinary, British   private   in   everything     but      fighting.     In      this      he  'excrls,        and        our      soldiers,      observing   his  excellence   and   their     oirn  comparative  inefficiency,  have  imagined  a thousand unattainable arts stored up  in.'tliat7 bovine, hairy head (if his, whereas the arts.are few. and  our men's  intelligence, set free and stimulated by an  intelligent system of training, wonldsup-  ply them all.

It is exactly  this   intelligence   which   it   is   desirable  to awaken in our men.-  That it is dormant within them is certain; and when  it  is  aroused,  enemies   like  the  Boers,  who  possess  only  the   self-reliance* or,  like tne^continental conscripts, who possess only the discipline, will wither away  before them.    .    .    ."    '  Finally, we may quote the writer's appreciation of the" difference in the sort  of problems to be handled hy the German and the'British staff officers:���������  "It is folly to compare the requirements of the two countries, cither as regards their machines or armies, or their  motive power���������their staffs. - Trust to  the Biitish staff a problem like the concentration of Moltke's two hosts at  Koniggratz, and no doubt the resulting  bungle would make angels weep. Deliver  over, on the other hand, to the most  wrinkled and astute of German logistic-  ians the care and conduct of seventy  small columns off the line of railway in  a boundless country, the orders and supplies for each, the concentration for a  general object, the dispersal for specific ones���������would he do any better? It  is exceedingly doubtful, arid even if ho  were not so helpless as Gulliver bound,  his highly-trained subordinates, or staff,  would almost eertainlv fail in the face  of what to, them would seem but a gigantic travesty of war."      ,  (To be Continued.)

Indeed, the Indian limner  merely aims to show the mes-t characteristic portion of the object he attempts to '.depict, unless he. be a man  of great attainment, in which case he  divides or dissects the subject of his  picture and represents the" whole by Its  parts, the latter being arranged entirely irrespective of the natural sequence.  The features of the Indian are sometimes Incorporated Into the representation of the animal which forms his  heraldic bearing. Should the .beaver,  for example, he the object to he de-  ploted, it is not attempted to design  the whole form of the animal, hut only  its dlstincuve and typical parts, as for  instance, its peculiar tail, which Is  painted in criss-cross lines extending  from the chin to the nose, as .though  standing upright. The ohin itself does  service as the heaver's body.      .  The arbitrary methods of the Indian  artist render it difficult, -if not impossible, for any but an expert to interpret the meanings of the pictorial representations. Thus an animal's ears  are invariably depicted above the eyes  on the human subject, the ear3 of the  beaver."being just above the eyebrows.  On the cheeks aTe painted the paws In  a position as though they were raised  to the mouth in the manner conventional in Indian carvings.  The dogfish painted in red on the face  designates the members of an entire  tribe. On- the foreheads of the members of this tribe is painted the long,  I thin snout; the gills are represented by  ! two curved lines below the eyes,* while  the" tail is shown as cut In two and  hanging from each nostril. Only one  or two parts of an animal painted on  an Indian's ������ace indicates th**t he Is of  Inferior position; the entire symbol, no  matter in what form presented, is significant of lofty station and high honors. -  The facial heraldry-of .the Indian  may be said to be unique, not alone In  the method of representation employed,  but In -the subjects - selected. .These  latter include flsh, > flesh and fowl of  all descriptions���������dog salmon, devilfish;  starfish" .woodpeckers, * ravens, eagles,  bears, wolves, frogs, are comprised in  the armorial  gallery. '   ' -  Every object repiesented has its own  particular significance,-and one of the  most peculiar phases ot face* painting  relates to the 'employment _of forms  other than animal���������tools, . implements  of the chase or of war, denoting tha  occupation of the individual or UU  tribe.���������"Washington "Times."   .  3  .

Never-  'theless, the jury, after listening to a  charge from the court, which ; was  virtually an order for 'acquittal,  brought in a verdict of guilty.  The presiding judge then addressed  Paine.  "You  will move for a  new  trial,''������������������.-.l  pre-sume,  Mr. Paine?" ,  Paine   rose   with   an   air   that   waa  painful In Its solemnity. -  "I   thank  your ,honor  for your  sug-  j gesiion." he said,; '"but I am oppressed  'With the gravest doubts as to whether  I  have  the right to move for'a    new.  trial   In   this   case.

OIL PROSPECTS  THE WEST  Mr. R. L. Bonlen, leiuler of the Conservative   p.uty, has    meet   with   a  warm   welcome   in   the   West.     His  national   view   of   public   issues   has  commended him to the Western electorate.   Mr. Borden has not hesitated  to tell the great   audiences of  British  Columbia,   that   in   his    position   as  leader of   the   opposition   he  owes a  duty,  to   all Cunatlians���������Conservative  and   Liberal���������and   his   treatment   of  Canadian affairs will  be on broad and  patriotic lines.     He has spoken in tbo  strongest terms against Chinese immigration, which has reduced the white  working classes of   the West to pov.  ���������erty.   Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in dealing  with the Oriental   octopus,  promised  to fall in with the wishes of his party  followers, ignoring tbe constitutional  fact tbat he is the reperesentativc of  all tbe people.   ^lr. Borden   speaks to  the   people,   irrespective   of    narrow  paity lines, ancl thus places himself in  a position to deal intelligently with all  leading questions.     His  patriotism is  being praised by papers of both political   faiths,  and   Canadians arc beginning to learn tbat at the head of the  great Conservative  part}*, is another  of  those   men    whose   statesmanlike  grasp   of   tbe  country's   needs, made  Canada what  she  is  today���������a  nation  of ever increasing importance.

They will  receive within the next two months  two of the prettiest pictures in colors  that have yet been presented. Two  ieasonalile  pictureFliave  particularly  been secured   for   distribution during  September and   October.     We are in  receipt of the September picture, it is  entitled "On Lake Koshkonong" and  is a duck shooting  scene.     It shows a  hunter   in   his   boat   on   a stretch of  beautiful water taking aim at a group  of   flying   mallards.     The   picture is  painted in delicate colors and tliui-e is  a   very   fine   landscape   effect.     The  original is  the' woik  of two eminent  Vnited States painters, W.  L. Wells  and H. G.   Maragda.     The Free Press  present   a   picture    every   inontli   to  their   Weekly   subi-criljers    and    the  homes of the west, through the enterprise   of   the   Free   Press, are   being  filled  with  reproductions in colors of  world famous paintings.  Wells Have Been Sunk on Properties ��������� Three Merchantable  Grades Discovered ��������� Should  Prove of Immense Value.  Oil in Western ('anada is the latest  discovery and one which will not only  make this country famous but will  result in greatbenefitto Vancouver and  of great profit to many of her citizens--.  A company has been formed in this  city by Mi*. J. B. Ferguson, with a  huge capitalization, and sufficient  stock has been subscribed to begin  operations and secure sections of land  adjoining that on which the oil wells  have been sunk.  This venture is not one of pure  speculation, for oil has been discovered  some time, ancl the only question that  now remains is to ascertain just in  what quantities the valuable product  is. The. wells are situated in the western part of the district of Alberta,  immediately east of the British Columbia boundary, and soapages of oil have  beeu in existence for a considerable  period. Wells were sunk to discover  what quantity of oil was there, and  Air. Ferguson has now in his office  three grades, each of which is  of merchantable value, and the wells,  if developed, shjuld- prove of great  value to the investors.  The story of how Mr. Ferguson first  became aware of the presence of oil is  not uninteresting. _ It was known for  a time that oil was to be found in that  "district, as one man had made a fair-  living in gathering the seapage product  from the surface and refining it in a  crude way had disposed of it to sur  rounding farmers and others for their  uses. A few months ago a man was  sent to Mr. Ferguson with land to sell,  llu asked that he be paid $05,000 for a  section of the land, where traces of oil  had lieen found, but this was considered  too high.- Enquiry developed the fact  that the land in question was either  worth tbis much or was valueless, and  after negotiations a bargain was  effected.  Subsequent prospecting resulted in  discovering that in a number of places  on the acquired land oil was to be found  at a very reasonable depth, and the  matter was not made public until  adjoining properties had been purchased.  The company formed in the city is  composed of a number of the leading  business men and others, who have  taken shares of the value of 8500 each.  Sufficient capital has been subscribed  to enable operations to be commenced  and it is not improbable that extensive  discoveries will be made. The advantage of this to British Columbia and  A"7nicbiVver"caii-weli-be"iiiiagined,-when-  the development of those portions of  the United States where oil has been  taken from the earth is taken into  accounnt. Vancouver will be the main  marketable point of the new product,  which up to the present has not been  discovered in the Dominion of Canada  in any large quantity.

He is no more to me after  this'than any other dumb animal.  I have compassion for h'un, the same  as I have for a strange dog or a mule,  but I no longer look into his eyes to  find Hue friendship or honest intelligence.  I forgive him, but I never forget the  wrong. I do not willingly allow him  to pile up   f.ny   new   wrongs   against  me.

The   important   news   comes   from  Kamloops   that  the    Canadian   Real  Properties Ltd., of London, Englard.,  intend bringing under cultivation, by  irrigation some six or seven thousand  ncres of valuable arable land within a  veiy few   miles   of   Kamloops.     The  Canadian  Real  Properties of London,  England,  owes   its  existence   to   the  energy   of  Cecil   AV.   Ward,  late   of  Kamloops, but now   of   London. Hug.  Tlie capita] of tlie company is 4*43,000  with^ tbe   following    directors:     A.  Egerton Lee, F.  G. Mackenzie and C  W.   Ward,   the   latter   having   been  appointed    managing    director.     E.  Holt, of  Dash wood   Ho'iwe,   London,  Eng., is secretary, and R. H. Alexander will   act   as local   manager.    The  company   has   purchased., practically  every   acre   of  arable   land   between  Jamieson   creek*, and   the new bridge  across  the  Thompson   river, and w:U  on Oct. loth, commence the construction of a large canal or ditch, some 18  miles in length, to convey the water  from   Jamieson   creek   of   the   lands  acquired   by   the company.    It is expected by the company that the canal  which is to cost in the neighborhood  of $50,000, will  be completed by February, and in   running  order.   Information respecting the purchase of the  company's lands can be obtained later  in the   season   from   Mr.   Alexander.  _-,-The,folIowing farms and other lands  have been bought up by the company:  _W.

The Palmist and the Pope.  The diary of M. Desbarolles, tho clever  palmist who for years traveled about  Europe enlightening sovereigns and  meaner mortals on their various aptitudes, contains curious details about an  interview he had with Leo XIII., who,  strange to say, ia inclined to believe in  palmistry:  Desbarolles begins by discussing tho  hands of the Holy Father: "Poor, bloodless little hands," he says, "emerging  from white silk mittens which wero evidently too tight for them. Tliey are not  fnt antl comfortable,'liko those of most  of the church dignitaries who surround  him; not hard and wiry as wero said to  be those of Sextus V., who was a worker  nnd curved many of the ehairs arranged  against the wallB of the iincccnmoras in  the Vatican; not energetic-looking, like  those of the soldier-Pone Julius II., or  bloated and swollen, like the hands of  apoplectic and hydropic Pius IX.; they  nre like two tiny ivory jewels, colder  than the big sapphire surrounded with  brilliants wliich he offers to the lips of  hJ9 adorers. These hands, the touch of  which is weird and almost unearthly,  never answer by a pressure ever so  slight, to.,thut of a friend, but arc fuH  of reserve and never responsible. The  lines which are in them arc not so numerous as one would have expected, because there is .only one sot of ������tlxe| a,  those whicli correspond to tho brain.  Tliere are none visible coming from the  heart.  "-Most likely a human and perhaps kind  heart is beating under the Pope's red  mantle, but lie has always kept it under the mastership of a powerful mind���������  a mind decidedly inclined towards politics; too much so, in fact, for a holy  prelate; and whon I ventured to point  out this trait of character I saw the  lightless eyes of Leo'XIII. blink and bo-  come as cold as those of a serpent; ho  was not pleased, and showed it by quickly withdrawing his hand from mine. 1  did not see avarice in the hand of Leo  XIII. though he is said to bo somewhat  parsimonious; but he is at once a close  reckoner and a strangely eaTeless man  about money matters.  "One knows, for instance, his almost  ludicrous adventure with Consignor Fol-  chi, his ex-trcasurer. An enormoUB sum  of money, which had been sent in a bag  of crimson velvet by the Roman Catholic peoplo of New York, was nowhere to  be found, and the wretched cardinal,  much distressed by the anger of His  Holiness, was sent about in the Vatican,  and even to the police, with strict orders  to ..trace the lost treasure. When he  came back to the palace in a state of  great distress���������for his errand had been  fruitless���������he found the Pope blandly  Bmiling. 'I must apologize,' ho said,  quietly. Tou were scarcely gone when  1 remembered that I had placed the bag  in this little recess.1  "The hand of Your Holiness is often  full," Desbarolles said, "and Your Holiness knows exactly what is in it." On  -which the prelate, with a sort of childish gesture, laughed softly, rubbiifg his  knee with his left hand.  "I saw on the hands of the Pope,"  DcsbarolleB continues, "the gift of n'  wonderful memory, and also the love of  all that is gorgeous and imposing. When  I told him so, he answered, naively, 'Arc  not our beautiful ceremonies the best  vehicle for bringing people into our  churches, the women especially f  "Besides theBC lines, I saw all those  ���������which are visible on the hands of painters, architects, poets, and even engineers.  No wonder that one sees installed in the  palaco all the modern iiiientions, and  that the flrst thing Leo Xtll. did when  he came to live in the Viitican was to  put into corners, as meie ornaments,  the wick lamp's used by Pius IX.

After Desbarolles had told him all that  he read in his hand, he heard His Holiness mumble between his teeth, A  Jaek-of-all-trades, then?" .  "Who would have become a master in  each of them," courteously answered the  PITheS Pope  sighed.    "Better   be    thc  Father of all men, M.

There is absolute ���������silence in response,  and she explained the meaning of the  word  Why Wool is Cheap.  i    (By Alfred Mnnscll, Shrewsbury. Eng).  My attention was first drawn to tho  extensive adulteration in woollen goods  by an able article headed, "Why is  Wool so Cheap ?" In which the writer,  who is well known as a wool export,  boldly states lhat :���������"It" the wearing  apparel as used by men and women were  only made out of the pure wool fibre expressly given to us by Providence for  this sole purpose, instead of being substituted by other foreign materials, t!ic������  there would be a robust stale of affairs in connection with wool, but, as it  b. the use of wool Is annulled at every  turn by the use of substitutes for the  sole purpose of cheapening wool fabrics,  with little or no n-g.ird to the wearing  properties of the same."  The same authority states that la a  drive of 30 miles around Bradford, not  one, but scores, of mills could be-pointed  out where for every bale of wool med  ten bales, and often more, of shoddy,  miingo stockings and cotton nre used,  and that ln what is known a> the  heavy woollen districts of Yorkshire  there nre dozens of manufacturers who  never buy a. single bale of rnw wool,  and yet are known and acknowledged  as influential manufacturers of woolle������  goods. This is a very extraordinary  statement, and.notwithstan.iii g the wid������  circulation of the article quoted, no refutation has been forthcoming from the  manufacturers inlciestcd. The importance of the frequent sales of rags of  every description, stockings, mungo and  the like, despatched from all parts of  the British Isles, and several continental countries, held at Dewsbury, Bat-  Icy, Leeds and other centres In the  manufacturing districts. prove the  truth of the foregoing assertion. It is  further stated that to several large  woollen (?) manufacturers these sale!  are far more important than any of  the great wool sales held in London,  Bradford  and  elsewhere.  Examples of Adulterated Goods���������  Melton, 42 in. wide, 6d to 7d per yard,  extensively used for skirts and frocks,  contains no wool, being absolutely all  cotton warp, the weft being entirely  spun from rags and a little raw cotton blended together to give it strength  ���������sold as woollen goods. It is stated  that thousands of pieces are sold weekly  in thc shape of meltons, serges and the  like, and that the art of finishing as  practised in Yorkshire has reached such  a state of perfection that it is now  quite possible to hide from the ultimate  buyer the defects of the fabiic, .particularly hiding the foundation material of the cloth.  In The Yorkshire Daily Observer of  March 29th last reference is made to a  cheap class of coverts brought out by  some leading manufacturers, composed  of a mixture of worsted warp uni a  cheap carded weft termed Angola, a  high-sounding name for a blend of cotton with mungo. Having a satin or  Venetian weave, the weft is thrown on  the back of thc cloth, leaving the faco  with a worsted appearance. The cloth  is well constructed and has a large de-^  mand.  An Assize trial at Leeds on March  17th last has settled the vexed question of the vague terms "All wool" and  "woollen," and we now know that "all  wool" means all wool, but "woollen"  means anything that is composed " of  shoddy, mungo and cotton.

At last, said the nurse: ' "1  shall read him 'Three Men ln a Boat,'  and if that doesn't amuse him, I shall  give him up "= hopeless." So she rend,  till linally "a reluctant smile came over  his face, and ho said, with slow satisfaction: 'I do think they be three rum  'uns.'" That was the turning point in  his illness, lie recovered completely, and  left the hospital a bright" uud cheerful  man.

"I don't know, sir,'.' was the answer.  ' "Well, then, why do you hand it to ma  if you don't know whether it is my hat  or not?"? asked Mr. Smith, sharply.

According  to the "Bookman," the late Frank Stockton, when his turn came, said that he  -was quite satisfied. Referring to his long  drudgery upon magazines and^newspa-  pcrs, and his final breaking loose into  literature, he i"  'strated  his  point by  reciting the following lines:' '  There was aniold monk of Siberia,  Whose life it grew drearier and drearier,  Till he broke from his cell  With a hell of a yell,  And eloped with the Mother Superior,  which lines are supposed to symbolize  Mr. Stockton's breaking away from editorial toil.

" It "was the day before quarter-day  When my cousin Peter Post came into  the "office, threadbare and shabby, as         ���������usual, with'thenap'worn oilhis hat, ['.vrife."  was to be at the new house to rccelvo  the furniture, while Bridget, our ancient and reliable housekeeper; dispatched It from the deserted domicile.  '������������������ 'ii; '*��������� ���������  1 'At one o'clock I contrived to escapO  from clients and parchments, and hurried to 111 Browning Square���������a fins,  well-to-do neighborhood, with a green  jewel of a public garden in Its midst,  and a general air of genteel seclusion  about it which suited my idea of a-location exactly.  Mrs. Jacob Goldleaf sat alone on a  campstool In the middle of the largo,  empty dinlr-r room, a shawl wrapped  round her aL mlders, and a mingled expression of weariness and anticipation  on her face.  I looked round In surprise.  "Whore's all the furniture, my dear"'  said I.  "That  is  the   question,"  said  Mrs.  Goldleaf.   "Where-is it?"  "Hasn't it come?"  "Of courso it hasn't," said Mrs. Goldleaf, a little; Impatiently. "I shoiid  think you could see .that for yourself.'"  "There's some screw loose In the arrangements," said I. "I'll hurry hack  to the old houso and And out what it  all means."  I did so at once. Brld������;it, with an  old handkerchief tied round her head,  and a red shawl enveloping hor, a In  Boadlcca, Queen ot the Britons, waa  just locking up thc houso.  "Sure, I was goin".round to me cousin's for a bite of soinethln' to evt,"  said she., "The second van has fono,  and the man won't be back for an hour  or more."  "Bridget," said I sepulchrally, "wUcts  has it gone?"  "To, the new house, sure," said Bridget   "Where should it, go?"  "Did you tell him w.iere to drive?"  ���������I asked. ....  "Sure, he had a bit of a calrd that  you wrote yourself," said Bridge*.  I tore my hair. Who ever heard of  ft load of furniture getting lost in tho  streets of a metropolis, like a black-  and-tan terrier or a barefooted baby?  ;"What on earth does this mean?" I  demanded, apostrophis'-ng the dismantled windows,: the llreless grate,.rather  than any: actual personality.  At that moment' Mrs: Goldleaf camo  hurriedly ln.  "I couldn't rest quietly without coming to see what all;this could mean,"  Bald she. "Oh, Jacob, shall we be left  without a'pillow to lay our heads oa  this night?"  ���������If the worst comes to the worst,  we can go to an hotel," suggested I.  ���������But it's the most mysterious exampla  of an unaccountable disappearance that  I ever heard 'of."

A.  Suverkrop of Philadelphia, who during  his trips to South America has been for  some" years contributing to the collection . of liis friend, Professor 5T. E.  Brown, of the Herbarium, Kew Gardens,  London. The wonderful plant which  Mr. Suvcrkrop has now found is an orchid that takes a drink -���������whenever it  feels'thirsty by letting down a tube into  the water. When not in use the tube  X3 coiled up on top of the plant.  One hot afternoon, says,.Mr. Suver-  krop, I sat down under some brushwood  at the side of a lagoon on the Rio de la  Plata. Near at hand was.a fores.t of  dead trees which had, been choked to  "death by orchids and climbing cacti. In  front of me, Btretching over the waters  of the lagoon and about a foot above  it, was .a .branch of one of .these dead  trees. Here and there clusters of common planta del aiTe grew on it, and a  network of green cacti twined round it  Among the orchids I noted one different from the rest, the leaves, sharp  lance-head shaped, growing all round  the root and radiating from it. .Prom  the center or axis of the plant hung  a long, slender-stem about one-eighth  of an inch'thiek and one-fourth of an  inch wide. The lower end of this was  in the water tota depth of about four  inches. o  I went over at once to examine my  discovery, and was surprised when 1  ���������������touchcd_the plant to see the center stem  gradually contract and convulsively roll  itself up in a spiral like a roll of tape.  I found on examination that the stem  was a long, slender, flat'tube, open at  ���������lhe; outer end, and connected at* the  inner end to the roots by a series of  hairlike tubes.,  - By subsequent observation I found  that when ,the plant was in need of  water this tube, would gradually unwind  till it dipped into thc water. * Then it  -would slowly coil round and wind up,  carrying with it the quantity of wntcr  that the part of the tube which had  been immersed contained. When the  final coil was made, the water was  "poured, as it were, directly into the  roots of the plant. The coil Tcrn-ined  in this position until the plant required  more, water. But'should the plnnt be  touched .while the tube ii extended, the  orchid acts like thc sensitive plnnt, and  the coiling is more rnpid.  I found many of those plants, nil directly over thc water, or over the place  where he water had been. In the latter  case it was almost pitiful' to, see how  the tube would work its way over the  irround in search of water that .was not  there.  Running a Great Rapids.  "At the hcnd of one of the grent vapid*, a 'bowman, seeing tlmt I mated v-rll  with   a   light-v 'fight' of     his   crow,   invilcil ine lo liii.u a puddle and help thfin  through," writes Arthur Hcininj in the  July "Scribner" in describing the Abltilii  fur brigade.      "While    the -brigade arc  shooting rapids  light-weights  are  at a  'premium.*  Tossing in  an   extra  sot  of  paddles wc stepped aboard, and with n  gentlo shove the' current caught us and  carried" us out to mid-stream.   Long before we sighted white water the roar oi  the cataract was humming :n our a*r������.  we two mil' ten sat upon (^..mage Mvki  and braced our moccasoned feet agaiwl  thc ribbing. Presently the bowman sto-oil  up and sfiiiincd the river.   Dark,'ominous  water  raced  ahead for   a  hundred  yards, then disappeared, leaving nothing  but a great, surging mass of white thnt  leaped high and dropped out of sight in  the apparently forsaken river-bed.   Then  the steersman stood up, too, and Indian  words passed between them.   Every moment we. were, gaining impetus, and always heading  for the  highest crost of  foam.   Waiting for the word to psidulo  was even worse than  waiting for the  starter's gun in a sculling race.   At 1������������'..  it  came,  just  as ire  were   twenty-five  yards from the end of dark '.water. With  n.   wild   shout   from   the   bowman,   we  drove our paddles    home.     The groal  canoe trembled a little at first as our  work was somewhat rugged, but a moment  later  we settled    into    an   even  stroke and swept buoyantly among.tlit  tossing billows.    Now  before us ran s  strange,  wild  river   of   Boething  white,  lashing among great, gray-capped, dark-  greenish bowlders that blocked the way.  High,   rocky   banks   standing  olose  together, squeezed the mighty river into n  tumult of fury.. Swiftly we glide down thc  racing torrent and plunge  through the  boiling waters.   Sharp rocks rear above  the flying spray, while others are barely  covered by the foaming flood.   It is dangerous work.   We midmen paddle hard  to force the canoe ahead of the current.  The steersmen in bow and stern ply and  bend their great seven-foot paddles. The  bowman, with eyes alert, keenly watches  the whirling waters and Bigns of hidden  rocks below. The roar of seething water;  drowns    the    bowman's    orders.      Th'.'  steersman closely watches and follow-*^  every move his companion makes.   Down"  we, go, riding upon the very back of the-  river; for here thc water forms a. great  ridge, rising four or five feet above thc  water-line on cither shore:  To Bwerve tc.  either side means sure destruction. With  terrific speed we reach tlie brink of r  violent  descent.     For   a  moment   tht  canoe pauses, steadies herself, then dip*  her  head as the  stern  upheaves, and  down we plunge among more rocks tha:  ever.      Right -  in  our  path  the  angrv  stream is waging battle  with a  hoarv  bowlder that disputes the way." Witl  all its might and fury the frantic rivei  hisses and roars and lashes it.    Yet i'  never moves���������it only frowns destructioi  upon all that dares approach.it.   How  the bowman is working!    See his pad  die bend!     With  lightning  movement*  he jabs his great paddle deep into thi  water and close under the* left side ot  the bow;.then with n-mighty heave hi  HftB her head around.    The great cane  swings as though upon a pivot;  fori,  .not .the steersman doing exactly thc ven  opposite at this precise moment?    W*  sheer   off.    But   the-next  instant  th.  paddles   nre   working   on   the   opposit.  sides, for the bowman sees signs of :  water-covered rock not three yards froi-  the very bow.    Willi  a  wild lunge  h  strives to lift the bow around; but th-  paddle  snaps   like  a  rotten  twig.    In  Btantly he grabs for another, and a grn!  ing sound runs the length of the heavin. ,  bottom.   The next moment ho is worl*  Ing the new paddle.    A Utile water i  coming in, but she is runiiing.true.   Th  rocks now grow fewer, but still there i  another, pitch   abend.   .Again   the   bov  dips as we rush down the incline.

The canoe rides' upon thc  backs of the "white horses," and we risr  and fall, rise and fall, as lhey fi<jht be  neath us.    At last we leave  their wild  arena,"and enteiing calmer,water, paddle   away  to  the 'i-nd   of  the   portage.  trail." , '  Their Vacations  The musicians will live on the Sound,  and the ping-pong players will go to  Table Bay, suggests New York '"Life."

According to a writer in the "Lancet,"  the   male    human   needs     more    food  than    the    female,    not   only    on   ac  count  of   his   larger   stature, but   als*  because he is the more catabolic of the  two.    The man tends to expend energy  and the woman to  store it up in the  form of fat; he burns the faster.    This  sexual  difference   shows   itself   in  the  very blood;  the man has u linger pui  eentage  of  chromocytcs  than   the  woman, showing that he needs a proportionately larger quantity of oxygen in  order to maintain his more activ*. coin  bustion���������a fact which one may associate  with  his     comparative    freedom   from  chlorosis; moreover, weight for weight,  his pulmonary capacity is greater than  that of the woman, whoso smaller respiratory need is further shown by the  facility with which she can without discomfort  diminish her breathing  powei  by   means   of   the   corset.    "The   great  contrast between the metabolic activity  of the two sexes," continues the writer,  "was forcibly brought home to me by  n miliary display given by a troupe of  dusky Amnzons, with whom .were also  a   few male warriors.  'The  women,  ir.  spite of their daily exertions, were all  rounded and plump, some.very muchso.  no  single muscle showing  through  the  skin,  and   it   was   noticed    that   their  movements, though full of grace, lucked  energy and 'go.'   The. men, on the othei  hand, were ' spare, their muscles .standing  out  plainly  under, the* shiny  skin,  and they, in further contrast with thc  women,    displayed    a    truly ' amazing  Rgility,  bounding    about   and   whirling  round  in   a  most  astounding* fashion;  the -women,'-in   short,  were  essentially  anabolic and the mon were catabolic.   I  may here  draw  attention  to  the "fact  that men    are apt to    be larger meat-  eaters than women, just as they are,  possibly in consequence of this very fact,  ' more. prone   to  drink   alcohol and. to  smoke tobacco.". ���������  Interesting Items.

The Result was that, when completed, his House was lacking in Symmetry and Utility, nnd i:x a Hundred  Ways lt was Unsatisfactory, and for  each Defect there was a Neighbor who  said, "Had you asked Me, I would have  Warned you against that Krror."  The Oiher Man, who was of a Humble and Docile Mind, went to Each of  his Neighbors In Turn, and asked Advice about the Building of his House.  His Friends willingly and at Great  Length gave him the Benelit of their  Experiences and Opinions, and the  Grateful Man undertook to Follow Out  all their Directions.  The Result was that his House, when  finished, was a Hodge-Podge of Varying Styles and Contradictory Effects,  and Exceedingly Uncomfortable and  Inconvenient to Live In.

Another  deduction was that the -evidence  adduced at the enquiry with respect  to the action of coal dust upon a safety  lamp should lend to the study of the  possible ignition of a mixture of coal  dust und air and the possible prciluc*  tion of explosion through thisjinediiiin.'  The third conclusion, and one which  hud been forced home lo the writer's  mind more or less during the lust ten  years, wus that blasting should he  abolished in dry nnd dusiy mines,  npurt. altogether from the question of  gus. In other Canadian mines the  writer hud known coul dust to explode  in a workingroom ns a result of a  blast. He suggested further consider'  alion us to the effects of violent  concussions in agitating the particles  of coul dust which flouted in thu air  nnd produced a decree of heat which  rendered the atmosphere highly  inflammable and possible to influences  which would not be dangerous under  other conditions. Tliu writer hud  used much of the so'culled' safety  explosives nnd hud tested all those  upon the permitted list, and whilst he  wus, of course, prepared to admit thut  a highur percentage of snfety might  be attained by some of these than  with ordinary powder, he was convinced that none of them were  absolutely safe as wa? popularly  supposed; und he would go fuilhei*  und slate thut none of them were  sufficiently *afe to meet the reasonable  requirements of modern mining.

The Eva free milling gold property,  situated on Fish River, near the new  town of Goldfields, in the Kootenay,  has been sold for the sum of 8300,000,  according to a statement made to the  Province recently by Capt. Robertson,  master of the Arrow Lake steamer  Rossland, who has just arrived ic the  city.  In discussing the sale Capt. Robertson stated that the property was  developed by the Imperial Development Syndicate, which is composed of  Nelson men. It was sold to a company organized by A. F. Rosenberger,  of Nelson, and known as the  Calumet  liniifecir  and British Columbia-Mines"  The company is capitalized at $500,000  in 500,000 shares of a par value of $1.00.  each. Capt.' 'Robertson stated that  stock had not been on the market in  Nelson one hour before il was underwritten in the entire amount by  Chicago and English capitalists.    It is  the intention of the new owners to  erect a ten-stamp mill on the property  without delay.  "The general   tone   of   the   mining  industry in the Kootenays and  in  the  Slocan    has    improved     wonderfully  within'the   past-two   months,"   said  Capt. Robertson this morning  "Conn  deuce," he continued, "was restored in  the future   of  the   country   in   large  measure   hy   the 'blowing in of all the  smelters  upon   the   cessation   of   the  strike of the coal miners at the Fernie  camp of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.,  and by the reopening of thebigshipping  mii.es.   Since the smelters have hud a  full supply of coke upon call they have  been operating to full   capacity   as   is  indicated  by   the   shipments   of   the  Rossland camp alone which last week  totalled" over   1"4".CC0-tons.     Business  generally in the Interior is picking up  and outside capital is flowing in for the  development of many small properties  which have been idle for the past  year  nnd a, half.

Mr. Blackmore, of Montreal, read a  paper before the Newcastle (Eng.)  Institute of Mining Engineers, on the  Fernie explosion which occurred May  22, resulting in the death of 130 men.  The writer went on to say that there  are some lessons that should he learned  from this catastrophe corning us it did  upon the heels of others in which the  same prominent features werepredom*  inant. The writer thought that they  might well begin to doubt ths efficacy  of "watering" as a preventive for conl  dust explosions. Nor could it be  claimed that the watering adopted at.  the Fernie mine wan in any sense  thorough or satisfactory, hut because  there were considerable areas of the  mine  where  the   water was lying or  &  Souvenir  Novelties  In  large and varied  assortment.
