Mich.,   who   was   out  here   last  fi" -     ���������  month with the Michigan party, on an  investigation   of  the   Eva.   A recent  issue of the Houghton Mining Gazette  gives   the  following   veision .of > the  affair which is practically the same as  given by the Hkrald in its report on  their visit.   The Kootenay''Mail or in  .,      '. i ,  other words, the Certainty Knocking  Co. should'read  this''and gather the  true cause of all the trouble: ,-  Mr. Hanchette in discussing the  scheme to float the Eva proposition  said:  "I cannot see how Rosenberger can  have tbe assurance, to ask', the.Northwestern stockholders,to assist hitu to  float the Eva or even' ask them to  subscribe for stock in the Calumet  .ar.d Biitish Columbia after the way he  has tried to down" the Noith western,  and after the directors of the North.'  westernr have concluded not to  take hold of it. 'Not because the  property was not good���������the engineer's  report has not been made���������but be  caiiBe the take-off to the underwriters  was ton large and the control of the  propel ty remained with the western  end, and because the terms of the  bond are so strict that a tittle foolish  ness or trickery would lose to the  stockholders all tho money,lhey paid  for the stock, The stockholders are  not purchasing a property,, but - are  practically putting up money on an  option that can easily he forfeited  with "all the money and machinery.  We investigated and decided- not to  recommend the deal. Many ' have  subscribed for stock under certain  representations. Those representations not being effected or carried out  we decided that the money should be  returned to the subscribers, and then  tf they wish to take stock through  Mr. Rosenberger at all, and let him  handle their money, then can do so.  "I do not say that-the Little Eva is  no good. No one can say about that  till the engineer's report has been  received. It iu possible that the Eva  is a good mine, but 1 don't believe in  taking hold of it on those terms. We  were well pleased with the show of  things at tbe Northwestern and I believe that will prove a valuable mine,"  /  . - Wouldn't It Jar You.  -.Wouldn't it yon ! The editor ot the  Mail is fearful that there will'be such  a race for advertising s-pace t in his  p.iper by the'merchants ot- Revelstoke  for the holiday season thnt his adver-  tismg space will be underwritten many  times over. The Mail bays: '"Contrails  fpiCChristmas'advertising should he  made at once lor our space is limited."  Yet he has columns of stuff like '-baby's  Hrsttoiuh."_"'does your food distress  you," i'h.iv'e.you. pains in lhe back,"  "doJ y.iu belch forth wind," and  clubbing offers till further notice, not  to���������mentioned vertisHig-matt>.rs"t hat  conflict with the retail mei chants of  this tity, for instance, Ryrie Bro������.,  jewellers, Toronto, and ��������� Weiler Bros .  furniture 'dealers) at Victoria.

The liv.ilry for the post of Premier  or British Coluinliiii, in succession to  lion. James Dunsiiiuh-, is ended at  l.i->L and Colonel Prior becomes the  first minister ol' the province. He  w.ifa sworn in utU&O Friday night by  the Lieutenant-Governor as Premier  and Minister of Mines.  The resignation of Mr. Dunsinuii'  was handed in to Sir Henri Joly de  Lotbiniere early in the forenoon of  Fiiday, but the fact wan kept very  secret, and when it was published in  the evening was received almost with  incieditlity. The, Piemier has kept  liis pledge to Hon. Mr. Wells, absolutely  namely, that he would retain office  until his return.  After Hon. Mr. Dunsnmir's interview with the governor Friday morning when he recommended the  Minister of Mines us his successor,  Col. Pi ior was sent for and was  enl rusted by His Honor with a task of  forming a government. This he  undertook, to do, and at the hour  mentioned Friday evening formally  took over the f eins of oflice. - ��������� .  lion.'J. D. Pi entice". Finance Minis-,  ter and acting Provincial Secretary,  w.is sworn in to the former position  al the same time.-'  Hon. AV.' C Wells was. sworn in  Saturday morning as Chiet Goinmis-  sioneVof Lands aud Works, and the  same evening Mr. Denis. Murphy of  Yale, was sworn , in as Provincial  Secretary and Minister of Education."  The attitude of the Attorney-General to the.Miuist ry is not yet defined."  It is a fact Lhat his portfolio is open  for him iii the leconstructed Cabinet  if Mie ~ soj'desires. .- He did 'not avail  .hliiiselfof ���������that olFer-ou Saturday,;ififd.  he'may.? decide-to fetir.e from the  Ministry. Tho.se who best uuik-rsL.-ind'  the situation, .however,' believe that  when his'national disappointment has  worn off he will' loyally give his  suppcutto a Cabinet which will consist  practically of those he~ has worked  with for moie than one session. ..In  the event of Mr. Eberts' refniiiK to  retain hi*_ portfolio, it is said that the  Attorney Generalship will he offered  to Mr. VV, W. B. Mclnnes of Nanaimo-  The Piesidency of the Council  will  likely be taken liy Mr. II. Dallas  ileliiit'kon, who hns played no .small  pnrt iu Ihe negotiations which have  lesulled in Colonel Prim's selection.  The new Piumier has not been  biillicienlly long in the saddle to outline his policy fully, bnt he goes thc  length of saying, that it will he a  strictly non party one, in spite of his  nwn recent dcclaralionri for an issue  on Federal lines. It will contain.  Liberals like Wells und Murphy,  Conservatives like Prior and perhaps  lObsi ts, and anti-parly line men like  Prentice and Helmcken. If the last  accepts the Presidency of the Council,  lie will not requite to be returned  again, as the principle w-is established  nhen Dr. McKechnie occupied the  same post, that the position not being  a salaried one its occupant need not  consult his constituents when accepting it.  Colonel Prior's policy will be,largely  on that followed by the preceding  Ministry, and the Canada Northern  will be one of ils main planks. It is  .believed ' that, the resignation of Mr.  Dunsmuir, coming on lhe heels of a  trip made by him', and-Dan Mann over  lha Eaquimaiilt & Nanaimo Railway,  indicates that McKisnzie & Mann are  going to purchase the Isl.imi road, and  lhat Mr. Dunsmuir.-wished to be out  of office before consummating the deal  ih ns avoiding the'eharges which led up  lo the Curtis commission of   last year.  His decision in Colonel Prior's favor  ib said - to be due"* lo tepresentationa  made lo him. liy Opposition members  that they would suppott Col. Pi ior.

'am  . The Cut-Rate Grocer.  The following is an address delivered by C. H. Hanson at a convention  of the State of Washington Grocers at  Seattle ���������  ' A good definition of grocer might  be "a person selling food"; that is to  say,'supplying such -articles, as the  public need for eating���������the necessary  staples as well as the luxuries' of  living, which, with perhaps the  exception of fresh-meet and fish, are  supposed to be kept on sale by the  "modern "grocer. . -  Society must be fed, "and 'not only  so, insists on being well fed. Nearly  half of the laws on the statute-books  are for the regulation "or protection of  articles of food.  On the other hand, it' is ;stated  that nine-tenths of our diseases are  caused by improper or impure food.  r -The business of the grocer, then, .is  .quite-.an. important-factor-^inr.*; our  industrial ������and;ieconobiic'."system",'r'a������  well-as in our' social -j.well Jbeing aud  health, and,"should be conducted on  careful principles with grind judgment.  On- his capability, 1 judgment and  honesty dep*ends,\to a. great .extent,  the physical welfarecof society.  As just stated; capability, judgment  and honesty are three .of the necessary  qualifications'of'a grocer. Capability  ���������is the" outgrowth of practice, having  learned and to some extent mastered  the many details of the trade. -  - Judgment is" founded on learning  and" knowing how; it seems to be  inborn with some, while to others it  seems" unattainable.  _~But above capability and above  "good judgment is that last qualification���������honesty, "without - which no  grocer will or should succeed. Honest  to his customers to give ��������� them full  value, aud honest enough with  himself to make a fair profit without  recourse to tricks.  The insane clamour of the public" for  bargains and cheap goods  is met by  tlie so-called cut-rate grocer.  ' -The cut-rate grocer is usually a man  _who never learned the grocer's' trade,  who couldn't tell a Santos coffee from  a Salvador,   or  a   Ceylon   tea   from  Young Hyson if the   label  were   off,  nor a piece of' breakfast   bacon from  English belly���������he has gone into the  business to make money, and in order  to attract   the   public   to   his   store,  usually   sells   some   of    the    leading  staples, well known and fully labelled,  at, or a little below cost.   The bargain  hnnter is attracted and not only buys  but  tells   her   neighbor   how    cheap  Hour,   sugar   and   other   articles are  sold   at jthe new grocery.   They are  nearly a 1 new grocers.   The neighbor  doesn't gothere to buy.    She wouldn't  leave  her old grocer,   but   tells him  how queer it is he cannot sell goods as  choap as the new store.      He tries tn  show that he cannot sell goods at cost  and What's the use of argu  ing. Tn nine cases out of ten she  will stay right witn hiin, maybe kick  a little, but she likes him, and that is  the reason she stays.  Now, as to the Cut-Rate Grocer.  He is usually a man who has tried  several vocations and made a success  of none. Or he may have been in  some other business, and not getting  rich quick enoug, tries his hand at  groceries. He has a little money and  thinks he can undersell anybody, why ?  he can buy canned goods for instance  50c. a dozen cheaper than others. He  docs not know that the canned  goods he is buying are "do-overs,  and if he does, he does not care. The  same with his dried fruit���������it has been  steamed once or twice to kill the  sugar weavil aud grul>s; what's the  odds ?  He makes a larger margin with his  cut-rate price than the honest grocer  can possibly do on straight goods.  Well, he hurts Lrade somr, The best  trade, however, will stay with the  grocer whose customers have learnt to  trust him Some who leave will come  back again. Those who stay with the  cut rate giorer and trade,���������well, what  influence will he have on them. He  may assist the physician, the health  officer, and the undertaker in tbeir  line of business. As a rule, he doesn't  last long, he doesn't get rich fast, and  its bnt a passing wonder when his  store changes hands. ��������� Canadian  Grocer.

Here is the Christian's condition of  success In service for hi3 Master, Christ,  viz., "faith in Him." "All things are possible to him that believeth." You shut  off the current of your power the mo-  Dent you doubt Kim in the least. Your  ihoughl, your opinion, your faith in Him  circumscribes your power in accomplishing the world's benefactions.

There arc two classes of weeds���������thoso  thai oome from  seeds nnd   those which  are  propagated principally by means oi  llieir   roots.     Weeds   which   spring   up  from seeds-can be destroyed by successively  bringing  the sends  in  the soil   to  the surface, where they germinate.   The  seeds of sonic weeds have great vitality  and remain in the soil for years.    Sonic  arc  enclosed  in clods  and   avc retained  for another season, but when  the clods  arc broken and  the weed seeds exposed  to  warmth near  the  surface,  they are  put out of existence by the harrow  as  soon as they germinate,  for which reason it is impossible to clear a piece of  land from weeds in a season unless every  clod is pulverized.    Thc oft-repeated inquiry:    "Prom whence come thc weeds';"  may  be  answered:     "From  the  clods."  'Che  weeds  that  spring  from  roots  aro  cut up,  cheeked    and    prevented    from  growing hy frequent cultivation, been use  they cannot exist for a great length of  time  unless  permitted  to  grow.    If  no  leaves are allowed  on such plants they  perish from suffocation,    because    they  breathe through the agency of the leaves.    The advantages derived by the soil  in the work of weed destruction reduce  the cost of warfare  on the  weeds,  for  every  time the harrow  or cultivator is  used thc manure is more intimately mixed with the soil, more clods are broken,  a  greater  proportion  of   plant  food   is  offered  to  the  roots,  the  loss of moisture is lessened and lhe capacity of the  plants of thc crop lo secure more food  is increased.   Thc cost of the destruction  of weeds should not be charged lo  the  accounts of a single year only, as thorough'work during a season may obliterate the weeds entirely, or so reduce their  number as to make thc cost of their destruction during succeeding years but a  trifle.���������Philadelphia Record.  and lives of men unto God.

Realizing this most liberal distribution of bacteria in nature, it is not difficult for the milk producer to understand how tbey may gain access to thc  milk.  But milk, even before it is drawn,  has been found to-contain variable and  often large numbers of these microorganisms. The first source of bacteria in milk is the udder itself. If  the animal is suffering from a specific  infectious disease, such as tuberculosis,  anthrax, foot and month disease, or  other cattle diseases, ihe bacteria  causing these diseases are able to lind  their way frum the animal body through  the tissues inlo the udder. While  milk from such animals is utterly unfit  tor consumption, as it imperils tho  health and life of the consumer, its  dangerous elfects may be overcome in  case of tuberculosis by prqpcrly pasteurizing the milk. In the ease of  anthrax, however, the germs arc very  resistant ar.d heating the milk to the  boiling point will not' destroy them.  Fortunately, the milk secretion in anl-  .mals suffering from anthrax decreases  rapidly and ceases completely after a  few days; the milk takes on a yellow,  viscid appearance. The foot and  mouth disease, which is causing enormous loss ot cattle in European countries, has, thanks to the rigid enforce-  -ment-'of-our���������quarantine���������laws,���������so_far_  successfully been kept from the herds  of this country, hence an infection of  milk from this source is much less liable -tcj occur.  In healthy animals the only possihle  channel of" bacterial invasion is the  teat, d'he teat is a canal surrounded  by muscular walls and closed at the  extremity by an involuntary sphincter  muscle,- which varies much in contractility in different animals. Often it is  eo fax that the pressure of a. small  amount of milk in thc canal ia sufficient to open it and the aniinjl leaks  her milk. In other animals, it re-  quire= a strong effort on the part nf  the milker to draw the milk". This  canal, with a temprature of the animal  body, and  containing ahvay-,  even  Man and Horse.  There is a very general discussion going on in thc European press regarding  thc unnecessary cruelty lo horses attending the military ride from Brussels to Ostend, which recently brought  together contestants from most of tho  European armies. The London Chronicle gives some remarkable cases of endurance ou the part of both men and  horses. Charles Ml. o! Sweden rode  from Dcmslicn in Turkey to Strclsun on  the liallic, a distance of 1,300 miles in a  fortnight, during which he. thus kept up  the pace at lhe tremendous rate of 90  miles a. day. Nearest akin, perhaps, lo  this relay riding by Charles Douze are  the "pony express" performances of Captain Cody, belter known as "Buffalo  Bill," who once covered an "extra distance" of 322 miles iu one continuous ride at an average speed of fifteen miles an hour; while from -port  McPherson to 1'ort Kearney���������a distance  of !)o miles���������he roue in twelve hours  one day, and did the return ride the next  day in the same time on the same horse,  ln the annals of English history thero  is thc record of a fine performance. This  was the feat of Sir Robert Cary���������afterwards Earl of Monmouth���������who had privato reasons of his own for being the  first to announce to James VI. of Scotland the death of Queen Elizabeth, to  whose throne the "British Solomon"  was called lo succeed. From London to  Edinburgh the distance is now 400 miles,  and at that time it may be said to have  been even more, by reason of thc wretchedness of the roads. Starting from  Charing Cross on a Thursday morning  (March 24, 1G03), Sir Robert reached  Holyrood on the following Saturday  night. The first day he rode to Doncaster, 155 miles (presumably' on relay  horses); next night he slept .at a house  of his own at Withei'iiigt.on, in Northumberland, about 130 miles further, and  on the evening of lhc following day  he reached Holyrood, covered with blood  from a fall on his horse in the hist  section of his tremendous ride. Thus  Sir Robert���������who spent two nights in hed  ���������had done an average of ahout 133 milei  a day for three successive days���������a splendid  instance of personal  endurance.  Captain Charles Townlcy, a Queen's  foreign service'messenger, in 1840, was  sent to Constantinople by Lord Palmer-  ston with despatches of momentous ur-  gence and importance. The captain could  get no further than Belgrade by rail,  and thence it behooved him to spur  across the Balkans to Stamboul���������a distance of 820 miles. Every moment waa  precious. His orders were "not to spare  himself nor others." He did neither. His  way lay through mud, mountains and  darkness. An old musket wound open-  ed in his wild career, and drenched him  with blood, and he repeatedly fainted in  the saddle. Twice his horse fell with  him. Thirty minutes lo change horses  wns all the rest he took���������np.u-l from one  "blessed sleep of six hours," and so,  after five days and eleven hours in the  saddle, hn rode, or rather reeled, into the courtyard of the. British Embassy  at Pera, after having covered an average distance of 150 rii'.lcs a day for five  and a half days���������a finer case, of personal, endurance even than th.it of Sir  Robert Cary, who had done his average  133 miles per diem for three days. The  "voice of honor and humanity had been  vindicated," as Canning wrote���������nor  would anyone have protested.if, in such  a cause, a liundred horses had been killed, nnd Townley's great ride of 820 miles  in 131 hours was recited in the House  of Commons to the pride and wonder  of all Englishmen.  u  resistihiy  to  Uim.

"Thai's a queer disappearance as ever  wo tried to fathom.   A young girl buys  a ticket for Chicago, takes a Pullman',  car,  gets  to her  destination,  tees  the  porter, gets in a slreet car and is never  heard  of again. . Her aunt telegraphs  to know why she doesn't arrive.   Her  parents telegraph that she loft, as arranged.   The conductor remembers her,  the  Pullman    porter    remembers  hor.  And,   with  all   that,  she  drops  out of  sight like a tailing star.   She was one  of the prettiest girls ln Denver."  "And her luggage?"  ' "Was claimed by someone the same  day and shipped east."  "So she must have left Chicago."    .  "Not at all.    Her chocks  were  presented, but anyone might have got hold  of lliem.    Strange, however, that they  struck the right  place for finding the  trunks, unless they wore on the train,  too."  "And    the    luggage    was     claimed  again?"  "No, not until the mother described  tbe contents of a left trunk at Grand  Rapids, which had the girl's initials on  It.   It was one ot the trunks just as the  mother had packed it.  Five thousand  dollars reward,"  and the station sergeant sighed.   "I'd like to earn it."  I was  going to Grand Rapids,  and  laughingly remarked:   "Well,  I'll  look  out for Miss Maddlson, sergeant. What  did she look like?" The sergeant opened  a locked drawer. "Here's a photograph  of  ner,"  he said.  "She's a beauty���������at  least, she was. I doubt it she's alive." I  saw a cabinet portrait o������ a lovely, fragile-looking,  refined   girl,    with   long,  slender nose  and  thin,  arched lips,  a  sensitive, high-strung splrltuelle creature, but with, nothing of weakness in  her features.    The great, serious eyes  were deep and very beautiful, and half  veiled  by  rather  heavy  lids.    Anyone  seeing that face wouldn't easily forget  it. "May I have that picture?" I asked,  impulsively.   "I'll bring it back on my  return trip."  The station sergeant laughed.   "I got  it from a reporter who made a drawing  of it for the paper," he said.   "But, as  you say,  I'd recognize Miss Maddison  anywhere.    She had the loveliest pale-  gold hair, that curled in little rings all  over her head, just like a boy."  "You've seen her?"-  "Cerlalnly.   She has often visited her  stunt here, and I used to have a beat  on the North Side betore I got promotion.    Miss Maddlson spent one whole  summer  in Chicago,   the year  of  the  World's Fair.    She was only a slip of  a girl then.   She was nineteen the day  before she disappeared."  "Strange  story!"   1   said,   carelessly,  but I put the photo in lny pocket, and  presently   strolled   to   the    station   to  await my train for the  East.    It was  not long before I was comfortably settled tor the trip  and had impressed my  porter with the fact that I was a person of consequence.   How lt is possible  to do this I shall not make public, but  the porter,  a tall and fine-looking negro,  hovered  about nie with  a solicitude which was most soothing.  "We change time at'Chicago, porter;  what Is the right hour?" I asked, as he  stooned  betore me ��������� to put  ln a cinder  screen.   He pulled out his watch, turning It away from me, and I caught its  inner side reflected In the little mirror  which was set between the seats,  he  holding the  watch very close to lt as  he stooped.    In the lid was set a woman's picture, at which I stared as i������  galvanized.    It was  a  tiny replica of  the large photo which at that very moment stretched my breast pocket. "What  was this  son o������ Ham doing with the  picture    of    the   young   Denver   lady  whose disappearance  had  raised  such  a  commotion?    Before  I   could   draw  breath,  the porter snapped- his watch  shut, said In deferential tones, "Barely  a quarter to three, sah," and straightened his tall form, as the cinder-scre������n  slipped Into its groove.  "Have - you .been  long  on   this  run,  porter?" I asked, carelessly.  "Tes, sah;  run from Chicago to Detroit for several years now."  "And never further?"  "No,  sah.    I don't know  Canady at  all."  "Nor   west   of   Chicago,   either?"   I  '    asked., carelessly.. stlU.^wlth my eye on  '^"hlm,   as   he   reached   Into   an~up'per"~  berth  opposite.    For Just one moment  he hesitated, then with a short laugh  he answered:  "Well,   not     much,   sah.       I've   run  through .to 'Frisco several times,  and  once or twice short trips.    This is ray  regular route."   Someone rang, and the  porter hurried away, but presently he  came   back.     "You   goin'   through   to  Canady, sah?" he asked.  "Perhaps so," I said.   "If I don't find  what I want first."  "Oh, you'll find It, sah," he said, with  cheery   conviction,   and   made   himself  busy ovor his ti'-d-maklng again.

Above we.-e the tidy open windows,  and   just   within   one   of   them    hung  ttcros3 a chair a blue  coat,  gold-bu'.-  toned, and a railway porter's cap.

The singing woman began  to water her flowers, and I could' see  her small brown face peering dosvn as  she carefully showered her plants. Her  dark hair lay in little curls upon her  forehead, and her eyes looked handsome across the narrow street. "When  she caught sight of us watching her  she became mute and drew partly back.  "She's a nice little thing, and not bold,  as you see," said my client, observing  her. "Even these humble:, folk havo  the good of life.

There he was ln  his shirt-sleeves, my porter of the train  from Chicago. We both drew back, as  he leaned from the window and looked  up and down the narrow street. The  woman at the other window also leane.i  out, and called to him, pointing to a  straggling strand of nasturtiums which  trailed nobly independent from hei  flower-garden. She reached her arm  very far out and tried to impiison the  trailing flowers, and Just then her  sleeve caught in a nail protruding from  the window-frame, and rip! went tlu  dark cambric, laying bare a couple i f  inches of her upper arm. I started and  exclaimed.  "What's the matter?" said my client,  curiously, as the cry iburst from my  lips.  ' "Oh, nothing. She's torn her dress."  I answered, as she disappeared, and  the porter also withdrew into the seclusion of tho room opposite.  But I have extra good eyes. I had  seen her bare upper arm, and as sure  as I was alive it was as white as the  driven snow!  It was quite dark that- night when 1  entered -.the small shop, wearing my  .<orst coat and a newly-purchased  cheap hat, in which I felt very much  over-dressed.  "You've a room to rent?" I asked the  old mother who sold' wurst and other  delectable edibles.  "Yah, mein herr; vater, komm!"  Vater came, and we soon struck n  bargain. "I will pay you for a month,"  I said. "And when I get my trunk 1  will send it. My name is Jones. Put  the trunk in for ine."  "Yah," said vater. "It is a nice room,  and maype some soot, essen is by the  shop."  "You could send up my breakfast  each day?" I enquired.  "Yah, for cin mark���������twenty-flf cent."  "Very good."

During the evening I  journeyed ��������� out more than once,' purchasing several things at the queer little shops and grinning as I saw across  the way the head and shoulders of mj  client, propped up in an easy chair.  Presently a soft, clear soprano voice  began to sing very sweetly next door,  and' a tinkling accompaniment on a  rather fair piano was audible. The wo-  man played and sang with evident culture and ability. And she was the wife  of a colored porter! She sang bo softly  that I didn't catch the word3 at first,  but presently I entrapped a line which  was not English. My heart beat quicker.

"You want me?" she called to the retreating German.  "Nod ad all, my chilt; nod ad nil.  Only I wait to hear 'Du BIst wie Elno  Blumchen.'   That Is nice slngln'."  "Good-night.' said the clear, sweet  voice���������lhe   cultured,  white   voice!  "Guten-nasht, rny chilt. Schlafen sle  wohl," said tho guttural German voice;  ,ind I stood In the dark, with many  yieex thoughts.  Tfi'e girl paused before my open door.  "Is anyone there?" she said, nervously.  "A blind man, young lady, who has  rented   this  room   to-day,  and   thankt  you for your music."  She shrank Into her room timidly.  'Oh! I did not know tho room was  taken," sho said, hesitating. "There it-  i box of mine In It. Shall I send down  for the boy to take It out?"  "Don't trouble until to-morrow," ]  iald. "It will be quite sate. I shall  ock my door, madam." Then she very  ?cntly closed her own door, and the  aouse  wan perfectly still.  And I waited until very late beforo  C cautiously lit my gist and found un-  ler the sofa bed the box of the porter'B  wife. It was a very good box, Indeed���������  ���������xpenslve, and not much xuxed���������and on  the end were three letters���������E. G. M.���������,i  which certainly did not spell Jackson!  Very -early ln the morning I arose and  went out," and found a locksmith to  ipen'a locked trunk. He soon had the  ;runk open, sold mc a key which fitted  t, and took himseir off before eight  Vclock. Then I hesitated, but only for  i moment. I had gone too far to resl.it  further temptation. In a trice the tray  tt the trunk was on my bed, and I was  .ookins at its contents. As a married  man. r could appreciate the cost ot the  lalnty  things  It    contained,   none  t-f  vhich I dared disturb. I glngeny  jpened the hat-box. Ther:, tucked in  ine corner was a dainty gra.y card-  :ase, which I very carefully took out.  Several cards were In it, and on each  ine was engraved "Emily Gordon Mad-  llson!" I took one of them, hid it ln  ���������ny own pockolbook, nnd replaced the  .ray, locked the trunk, and carefully  shoved it back under the sofa-bed. I  nad found what I wanted, and flve  thousand dollars lay.In my Inside pock-  21! After 'breakfast the boy came for  the trunk, which he carried Into the  aext room, and during thc day I hoard  some more singing���������such happy carols  :hat I almost thought thc whole busl-  less must be a. weird dream, until I  stealthily glanced Into my pnc'.-.elbook  tt the card. "What under the canopy  :ould have led this sweet young.lady  .o bestow herself upon a nlRser?" I  isked, furiously. "To leave homo and  lamlly and associations, and live in a  grubby city slum and yet be happy  :nough to sing In that wondrous way?"  ! am afraid when on the second or third  ���������norning I heard a deep mellow- voice  Dlendliig with her clear treble I had a  nurderous Impulse to begin an assault  jpon a son of Ham!  Before I became solicitor for the railway I had taken five years of criminal  practice, and had come across somo  lueer cases. But here was I, by a cur-  ous fatality, mixed up In a compllca-  .lon at once weird and interesting to a  3egree. "I shall go to Denver," I said,  juddenly, when-I had received at my  supposed hotel an imperious telegram  Trom my wife, asking when il was  ,-oming home to arrange our holiday  trip. So on the next evening I boarded  i train, and as soon as I stepped Into  :he sleeper I encountered the tall form  and dollar smile of my friend the colored porter.  "Evening, sah. Yes, the parlor Is va-  ;ant. I got a message from town 'bout  in hour back," he said, politely. "You  ;o clear through this time, sah?"  "Yes, to Chicago," I "said.  He regarded nie with reminiscent eye  and smiled. "Got what you was look-  in' for, sah?"  .  I started and slared, then answered  thoughtfully, "I think so, John; I think  so," for I remembered my words ot a  fortnight earlier.  "That's good. sah. Tole you you  ,vould, you know," and with a low  ?hucklc tho porter showed me to my  state-room.  I fell asleep as_comtortably as old  travelers do, and neither dreamed of  Jackson nor his white helpmeet. When  I wakened hell was abroad. There was  a hideous jolt and jar, loud calls and a  crash of rending timbers. The door  burst open, and the porter shot ln, his  arms outstretched us ne plunged. Together we fell to the floor, to the roof���������  somewhere���������he over nie, and then there  was a sickening Interval of faintness,  which lasted but a moment, and cool  night air blowing upoa me, and someone deeply groaning close by. I  stretched up an arm and touched a  warm face. "Oh, Go.d! Is that you,  sah?" said a deep bass. "We'se  wrecked, sah, an' a beam is lying 'cross  my back. It's close on good-bye time,  I guess, for me!"  ' I put up my hand again. "I'm all  right, porter, but a cut on the head,"  [ said, weakly. "I shall call out for  help," which I proceeded to do with my  leeble might.  Then the deep voice went on. "I'se  done, sail. This big .beam's broke my  back. IEcel It,coming. Oh.'God! and  Lady-bird's all alone!"  A sudden terror rang ��������� through his  voice. I touched his face again. "See  here, porter; Is Lady-'bird your wife," I  asked, gently stroking his cheek. "Don't  give In yet. Tell nie what you want  me to do, when we get out of this  wreck."  "Do!" he screamed. "You can't do  nothing, sah. She's all alone except  for me. She left all of 'em for me,"  and his voice trembled. "She's an angel, sah, is my wife, sure enough. God  "������������������help her!". -  . .  .-  "Well, she shall never want, John,"  I said, solemnly. "I swear it, ahd If  you���������feel so badly���������is there anything  you'd like me to say to her from you7"  "Tell her I died worshipping her," he  said, in almost fierce tones. "Tell her  if it could be done over again I couldn't  do different; but tell her to go back.  She'll understand. Tell her If helllasts  forever and I'm ln the midst of It, I've  no complaint to make. I've had my  heaven. ' Can you reach me again, sah?"  I knew perfectly .what was coming,  and touched, not his face,' but his  .body._;!!Can__yjmiget^my^watch, sah,.  and put it in your clothes? , "Will you"  take it to her? My address is written  on it, on the chamois case. Will you  just give lt to her yourself, sah?" .  "Indeed I will, if you .don't .get there'  first," I said, cheerily, feeling In the  vest pocket and taking out the'watch.  "Looks like robbery, porter," I continued, stowing it away in- my pocket/  "See"here, if my legs weren't pinned  down, I'd try to help you." Now, 1  am going to call out again���������a'lantern  is coming this way." -  My shouts soon brought some scared  rescuers, who succeeded in freeing my  legs and dragging me from the wreck,  whon I promptly fainted and was carried to a.shed near by. When I came  to, my first words were, "Where's the  porter?" '    ���������  A man gasped out, "We can't loose  him; he's pinned fast. Ain't groaning  any more, so I guess he's passed in  his checks. Did you know him," mister? Reckon he saved you from that  big .beam that's lying 'crost bis. spine  now. He was a powerful nigger that,,  and ns white Inside as they make 'ern."  /The past tense was chilling. "Go  and sec If he Is dead, and if- not, tell  him to hung on,..and that I swear I'll  not forget, to do'as I promised him, and  more alBo."  "Well, don't excite yourself, mister.  _or you'll go off agiln. Here's the doctor was nearest," and away he went,  grimy and weary, to take my message. Presently he came back. "Porter's passed out, mister," he said, tersely. "I went straight to him with your  word, and as soon as I gave it, he just  said, "Good-bye, Lady-bird'.' und gin  up."  When I had been put to bed in a  wayside shack, and another man had  gone with a telegram to my wife and  yet another to "Lady-bird," and the  clay dawned on the wreck, the doctor  cam<fagaln. "They have freed the body  of your porter, sir," he said. "What do.  you wish now?"  "Have it cared for in the best way  possible. Forward it by special If you  can to the nearest undertaker, and  then look out for the answer to my  telegram. And say, doctor, I have his  watch ?.nd a message for his wife,  ���������which I am pledge' "������ (������o*������-������������������������������������  "Right,"    said    the    doctor,  heartily.  "ijor, by S.<22.z-.: or .tceident, he certaln-  ly'saved your ilia, ���������*::���������'." "Oh, he meant  it till right," I i������i.l, with a catch in my  .���������oice. "He mat.- slruisht for my stateroom when we collided, and spread his  ���������irms above me. God have mercy on  him I" Then 1 belliought me of my  li-Iond the clerk in Detroit, and the  nve thousand dollars reward offered  by the piicnts of Miss Maddlson for  Information 113 to. her whereabouts.  "I'll give him a chunce to earn that  some day!" f said. "For I don't want  to have a hand in the matter till after  I hnve ju.31 one talk with the Ladybird!"  Very soon a man canae in with a wire  Coi- me, two, three ot Ihem! My wife's  first���������only three words, "Thank God!  Coming." 'My partner's���������"Will be down  ay special this morning." The Lady-  olrd's���������"Send   body   to   Mrs.   Jackson.   Second street, Detroit.   Wire when  to meet it." Then, for all the h'orroi  and the sadness, I s'.ept for hours.  My wife sat at rny bedside when )  awoke, pale but smiling. Only thoso  who enjoy happy married life can  guess how our first words and thoughts  were Intimately personal; but suddenly  an idea struck me. Here was my natural helper ln the case of the Ladybird. So, while we sat hand ln hand, I  told her .what you know from this tale;  showed her the two pictures and enlisted her warm sympathy. "You must  ffo to her," I said, decidedly. "Go to  Che Cadillac, send a carriage, for her,  and get that damn stuff off her face  and hands. I suppose the hair-dye will  take time." My wife put her hand  over my mouth. "Don't swear over it,  dearest," she reproved. "She shall be  Deautlful Miss Maddison once more if  :hore's a face-doctor in Detroit .worth  her salt, She'3 my sister or yours, and  has run away with a theatrical troupe.  Could you stand the disgrace?" I  kissed her emphatically. "Julia, you're  a trump!" "Not an ace of spades:^ anyway," said my beaming 'wife. "I'd  idopt a whole nigger family, I am so  Jrateful for your escape���������so grateful  to that bravo, good porter-man. Just  leave It all to mo, honey, and you'll see'  how I can manage."  A week- after I was shown into a  room .at tlio Cadillac, where my wife  "Sat with a slender woman In a crape  gown. Her face was pale, and on hei.  small head was a luxurious crop of  golden curls, over which that most  pathetic -of tho many crowns of womanhood, a widow's cap, was perched.'  To a mere man, Ignorant of the barber's art and the mysterious toupee,"  the change was magical. My wife rose  and took the slender-woman's' hand.  "Mrs. Jackson, this is my husband,"  who'has something to tell you. Be  brave, my dear sister," she said, and  kissing the pale cheek of the porter'B  wife���������or Miss Maddison!���������she left us  alone.  I cannot report that interview, but  It Is one of the short times I don't"desire to live through again. ' My brain,  usi'ally so alert and well-regulated,  was simply at loose ends. I was now'  the blind lodger, now the Peeping Tom,  across the road, now the man of business, and, above all, the man for whom'  another man had faced death and'been  taken at his word. Mrs. Jackson, being  quite unsuspicious, had decidedly the  advantage of me. I gave her the  watch and' the message, the' latter" as  well as I could. Then I dodged her  tremulous" thanks, her"' tremulous' lips'  upon" my hand, and bolted from her'  presence-ln a complete state of de-' L  morallzatlorr.      " '     ;  "We are going home soon, husband,  are we not?" asked my wife, when she  had somewhat calmed me. ,  I sent for my friend of Second street,-  and 'Invited him to earn flve thousand  dollars.

Something told Winifred that It -was  Macalre who stood outside the door,  demanding admittance's������ that when  he entered he "had not, at all; events,  the satisfaction of surprising her.

"I would thank iiy friend the Minister  of Just'ce not to apply liberal methods  to Conservatives. There seems to be  a-great doubt amongst the Liberals  as to what their own lenders do mean.  I mean exactly what I said to the  people of British Columbia, nnd 1  made the statement to the people  there after considering the subject  fairly and carefully, and I snid to thc  people of British Columbia thnt so far  as the Conservative policy was concerned I was not going to tell them 1  would test the voice of the Conservatives" of British, Colunibin but that it  was a subject upon which the rest of  Canada should consult the wishes of  British Columbia, and when the  wishes of the people there were once  definitely stated the Conservative  Government would be prepared to  cany that out by every niei%ns in their  power���������carry out the wishes, not of  the Conservatives of British Columbia  or of the Liberals, but the wishes of  the whole people."

Judge Sproat has addressed the  following memorandum to the City  Council, a copy of which Mr. Sproat  accorded the Hkiiald for publication :  There are some things here, in  Revelstoke, that require more attention than they receive.  1��������� No useful communication exists  with the fiiinr'ng and other industries  on the opposite side of the Columbia  River.  2.-The actual city is severed, for a  mile, by a railway embankment without a legal crossing.  3.���������The Big Bend road lias no  established base, hut rambles into the  city through Dominion a-nd private  lands.  4.���������The large park, given to the  city hy the Dominion, is in n state of  nature without approaches.  o-���������The eight acre cemetery, donated  by Mr. Farwell, has no passable road  to it, except by committing trespass,  which must cease.  0.��������� The city has built a large brick  house ,on block No. 33, the relation of  which to the Farwell estate is not yet  determined.  7. -Streets and alleys have been  shut, or proposed to lie shut and  appropriated, as if the area closed  were not part of said estaie.  These surely (not to mention other  things) are singular facts in a centrally  situated town, eighteen years old,  which has' been" incorporated since  1899. They point to some default in  time past, chiefly on the part of  authorities concerned.  I shall not deal at present with all of  the above matters, but'only with the  imminent closing of the Big Bead  road and of the road thence to the  cemetery, in consequence of the  appropriation, to other uses, of Villa  Lots Nos. 1, 2, and 39,;whicb, in turn,  brings to the front the question of  railway crossings.  . A simpler question than this question of crossings could not he substituted to any business mind, yet very  few persons here seem to understand  il.  The lands at Revelstoke are part of  the lands granted tor C.P.R. purposes  to the Dominion, in pursuance  of the  Terms of Union by the B. C. Act of  1880, as amended in 1883 und 1884, the  company being authorized to receive  grants of the land from the Dominion  in aid of construction. A reserve was  placed hy the province, upon the Belt,  in 18S3 for .the purpose of conveying  the lands to thc Dominion.

P. R.  In the registered plan of the town,  such crossing was shown at the wusl  end of Douglas street���������the whole widlh  of the street.  "All"this,', however, owing to the  course that events took, as the result  ol disputes and; litigation, cuts no  particular limine now. and the fact is  only mentioned here to explain the  tradition, in the minds of many, um lo  a Douglas slreet crossing, which really  wus never a suitable place, owing lo  the lowness of the einkankment there.  It whi at a later.tiiiiw, following the  surveys of the town by the Dominion,  that the crossings were dealt with anil  the practical. question of the hour,  wilh respect to them, is only embarrassed by references to earlier ..history.  ��������� On the 18lh of February. 1890, the  Dominion, under its above powers,  patented 15 60.100 acres known as  " Parcel .No. 1 " to the C.P.R. Co.  This is the right-of-way strip, 100 feet  wide, lunniug from the Columbia  river to the east limit of the Farwell  estate, lot 6, group 1, according to the  B. C. government survey; (the Dominion local surveys, I presume, not  having been then completed and  approved). The usual power as to  ���������crossings that might . be deemed  ���������expedient remained in the Crown.  This - power was exercised in the  Dominion official plans of Revelstoke  -dated respectively, 31st Oct. 1800, and  22nd June, 1802, by the" indication  thereon, of the places nf two crossings,  ��������� to connect the town north of the  track.  One of .these crossings (which may  be called "No. 1") is where the wide  street that runs along the east limit of  Villa Lot No. 3 (Louis Berbit's) strikes  the C. P. R. track. Obviously this  crossing is in relation to the Big Bend  wagon load along said street.  The other dossing (which m.iy lie  called No. 2) is near the bridge whir "  the street; that runs along- the south  limits of .WIIa Lots No. 10,1 (Levesqu'e)  amd Nor 12'(Allen) strikes thesaid  track. This crossing 'No. 2; without  ���������doubt, is in relation to lhe Villa Lot  settlement, which already'is becoming  important. .,  The embankment at. both -these  places permits of overhead crossings.  The above, is in short, '-how the  cro3sirig"qiiestion stands, -and conse  quently in dealing with it now the  Dominion Government need not be  - approached, unless in the very improbable event of recalcitrancy or of a  proposal to substitute other crossings.  The latter is hardly practicable as the  official plans are .'of record, aud have  _beeh_.referred .to   in_ all _transfers_of  ing the   costly   Big   Bend road will be  useless.  The above default of the Provincia1  Government many yeais ago, whir)  probably arose from inadvertence doe*,  not absolve tbe corporation from  responsibility in the premises. There  lms been no ch>inge in Ihe main f.u-l  .if the situation since the cily wa>.  incorporated in ISO!), and the obligation  of dealing with those facts as to the  crossings and of subserving the public  interests generally, as to all matters 1  have mentioned, has been upon the  successive councils. I cannot as a n-in  resident pretend to know what pre  cisely, has been done or attempted to  be done, hut the general impression in  the pubic mind is that the action of  the corpoiation has lieen inadequate  Its uiir.y lo act, now, is Imperative tu  avoid a deadlock, in lhe circiiinslances  above described.  lu conclusion so far as appears,  Illume does not attach tn the (J. P. R.  Company . in connection with the  present situation The company is  not responsible to tlie public in tlu<  sense in which Die Provincial Govern'  ment and the corporation are respon'  sible in their respective spheres. It is  no part of the Company's duly to  initiate action as to crossings when llie  parties, responsibly concerned, remain  inert.  The Company has not yet closed, as  it might have done, and must now do,  the passage of the deviated mail  through its valuable parcel No. 3, and  it stood the risk for years of a  dangerous level crossing where, as'  travel increases, serious accidents may  occur.

PEAKING of the Introduction In  Eastern telephone exchanges  of the "line-busy" phonograph  attachments, the "Argonaut" remarks that ln the effete East these Innovations ... mny possibly be tamely received, but tliey had a short life ln  San Francisco. When some bright tele-  phono clerk conceived the plan: of saving anothor clerk's wages by putting  on a phonograph to say, "Line Is busy,"  It was. received with rejoicing by the  telephone stockholders In' Snn Francisco. But the te'ophon'o subscribers  did not like it at all, and did not hesitate to say so. On the -Ilrst dny of the  innovation the stiu-tled telephone subscribers listened In wonder to the mechanical moaning, squeaking and buzzing of the phonograph droning out:  "We ���������will���������call���������you���������line���������is���������busy ���������  Hno���������ls-*usy��������� we ��������� will ���������call���������you."  The machine, naturally, was deaf to  expostulation or enquiry. To polite  dissent and to fiery oaths lt returned  the same .monotonous gronn: "We���������  will���������call���������you���������line���������Is���������busy." Gonded  by this automatic barking, the most  mild-mannered men became temporarily maddened. On that famous first  day tin; telephone scenes In tho various  clubs were peculiar. .From tlie telephone closets there would come at Intervals wild bursts of oaths and sometimes maniac laughter.; The attendants  would hasten to the telephone temple,  and assist forth congested millionaires,  purple-faced, pop-eyed, apoplectic.  They were speechless���������all they could  do was to shake their fists at the telephone. When a mining millionaire from  Mexico, newly arrived that day,: suddenly burst out of the telephone closet  clamoring for an axe with which to attack the Instrument, the club manager  grew apprehensive. When, later in the  day, an alcoholic millionaire could not  wait for an axe, -but demolished the  telephone with a heavy, silver-headed  cane, the man?ger concluded to take  prudential measures and ask the tele-  Phone company to switch off the phonograph. Which was done. This was  the end of the telephone-phonograph  ln the San Francisco clubs, and not  long after It was disused throughout  the city generally. This experience is  respectfully submitted by the "Argonaut" for the consideration of Eastern  cities.  CunouS'Bics ot News.  Suicide Contagious.  Mayor Morse, of Emporia, Kan.,  asked the editors of Emporia papers  recently to refrain from publishing details of suicides. He said that the publication of such details had caused an  epidemic ot suicides In that community  In the last two years. He had consulted with the Board of Health, and  thought that if the papers would not  comply with his request he had a  right to stop summarily the publication of suicide details under a law providing for the suppression of epidemics.  " If the paper." he said, " on which  ���������these local papers are printed-had.been,  kept in.a place infected with smallpox I could demand that the papers  quit using that paper or stop publication. If they spread another contagion, the contagious suggestion- of  suicide, I believe the liberty of the  press is not -to. be considered before  ���������the public welfare, and that;the courts  would sustain me in ^sing force , to  prevent; the publication of papers containing matter clearly deleterious to  the public health.  "-However, no i\ich steps need be  taken.

Against lhis intrepid little  and stood arrayed a cole -ml, bureau-  cratic, imperious administration; an oligarchy which cared nothing for the  masses, cither from a social, economic,  educational, .' ) .ilitical or any other  standpoint; a 'ovcrnmoiit which treats  her vast, lecmin��������� population as children  who have no will of their own and musi  be told- what they shall eat and drink,  what tliey shall speak nnd believe; a  government, which considers every person ns a bud citis-on until proven to lie a  good one, and freely uses the ciiiie, llio  knout, lh- dungeon and Siberia i'or thoso  unfortiini- ��������� citizens who ure not considered good'and loyal subjects���������those with  "pernicious tendencies." Against such a  tyrannical, high-handed, herculean administration these few valorous sons  have, voluntarily, pitted themselves, hoping to set thc captives free; to create  light out of darkness nnd bring oidcr out  of chaos and inversion. This wus thoir  .stupendous task, and there was indeed  much to think about.  Suddenly, ' through tho inspissated  darkness, a voice, musical and ludcn with  emotion,- raii,j out in tho stillness���������a  voico which instantly electrified every  heart. It was tho commanding voice of  Ivan Dabroff.    He said:  "Brothers, I must apologize to you  for not having this place lighted���������it is  essential that it be so to-night. We have  with us now a brother from Moscow who  has brought us valualiio .information,  and also papers from Berne, Brussels and  elsewhere. He is here to help us through  with an important undertaking, and wc  have an excellent reason for desiring his  invisibility. Now, the foremost thing  demanding the "committee's' immediate  .action is the riddance of lhat old hound  ���������Gresser. .You are all aware, that since  he has become chief of that nefariou-.  'Inquisition' many of our brothers have  fallen into his hands"; he is even now'  torturing them in order to wring our  secrets from lliem. ' He has broken up'  om meetings so that we can no longei  pei foi iu our sucrcd task; he has dis  covered our piinting ollice and is detci  mined���������if the Little Father (C Mr) keeps  him in his present office���������to effect, ^nol  only the disruption of our organization  but also the extermination of all the  members, thcicof. He has gone fai  enough!    His.time has comet"  "Is it known to any of the brethren,"  asked a voice, "how this hound discovered our printing oflice?".  "No", it  is  not  known,"  replied Ivan  fromptly. "We are loth to think that  here is treachery in our camp, neithci  lo wc believe that any of our comrades  will divulge our secrets under torture, or  through-tempting bribes. Our brothers,  we.are convinced, would rather .endure,  untold agonies," yea, even death itself,  than betray our sacred cause and deliver  us all into the jaws of those rapacious  wolves. Nevertheless, the committee  shall spare no pains, nor shrink.from"  any risk, in older to find out how our  printing office was'unearthed. Just now,  brothers, we must deal with several matters related to our foreign work."  "Should we not first concentrate all  our energies to biing about Gres3er"s destruction?" asked the same voice from  the audience.  "I am soi ry to say," replied Ivan, lowering his voice, "that this subject cannot  be discussed now. .We shall, ask .our  brother to believe" that the best is being  done'in that-"direction, and the results,  we hope, X ''ill be all that could be desired."       l' ',."'���������.  "We - have' implicit' confidence in our  leader," replied the voice, heartily."  Several important , items were' discussed and dealt with within the next  two hours. Then the meeting was closed  by the president requesting the guides  to lead the members out of the room���������  by a.different passage from the one they,  entered.  A hand was gently, laid on my, shoulder and" Ivan's voice whispered: "You  remain hero, Matvey."  Soon after all were gone a match wr.s  ���������truck by Ivan and a paraffin candla  was lighted, thus dispelling the darkness,  which surrounded us all evening. I could  see that there was no one in the room  except" Ivan, myself, and a stranger  'whom-I- judged .to. be the "brother from  Moscow.  ^'"We tripped.;old Gresser'to-day all  right; enougn," [remarked Ivan^with a  Bmile,",as-he stuck' the-candle into,the  neck-of-a-bottle,  a dangerous adversary, and the meant  for his destruction must necessarily be  in keeping with the subject. Here is one  of Greaser's latest photos; study his  features carefully, so Unit, no matter  how cleverly he disguises himself, yon  will be able to recognize him when he  pays you a visit."  My countenance must have betrayed  my inward dubiousness a= Lo the succes--  of the venture, for Dmitri, who wa>-  watchim; mo intently, now interposed fo-.

"As lone  as we hnvo life wn shall struggle on--  and we shall win in the end!"  "You  may expect  me  to do  my  nt-  .most," 1 assured them ns we parted in  silenca, each being occupied with a varic  ty of fearful and Tiaz.'.rdnus anticipations  CHAPTER II.  For the next week I lived in a Btnti  of mental abstraction. The fact thai  the chief of the dreaded "Third Divi  sion" was cbming to bribe me and use  me as his tool sp excited and mystified  me that I could' think of nothing else,  could do nothing else but meditate and  speculate aB to the outcome of all this.  past services In the same direction.  These papers you could easily hide in  Ivan's study. Then, 1 will so arrange it  that the other Nihilists in the city shall  find these papers. This will lead to his  immediate expulsion from thc Movement��������� no'inore than he deserves."  "This is quite an ingenious contrivance," I remarked, appreciatively, "and  it would onlv serve him .right. Nevertheless, I could not honorably consent  to the -idieine."  "Oh, hang your scruples!" cried Litsin-  ski, repronclitully. "Be a man, now, and,  if agreeable to you, I shall reward you  wilh one hundred roubles. I am well  of!' and the revenge is worth that much  to me any dnv."  After a good deal of talking and argu-  in,g I finally consented to do as Lusin-  ski suggested���������for the consideration of  two hundred roubles.  Next evening Lusinski himself brought  a well-filled envelope���������stamped nnd reg-  isteied, with the postmark of St. Petersburg on il���������and, handing mo thc two  hundred roubles, cnutioned mc not lo  lead thc papers. Ho also informed mo  that Ivan was not at homo just then,  and therefore it would be the best time  to net. We both went over to Ivan's  house, and, leaving Lusinski outside, I  ran upstnirs' and hastily . concealed ths  papers in Ivan's study.  "Is it all right?" enquired Lusinski, ex-  citedlv, ns I emerged from the house.  "Yes; I stuck it under his carpet in a  corner,of'the room," I replied, hnstily,  and hurried away to my lodging-place.  to question him njiy  more.

"Well," continued Ivan," "our brother  Dmitri 'has just* arrived fro'ui Belgium  with important papers.

He wore bine glasses, and I could  just detect that he was adorned with a  wig. But though thc man was excellently disguised, yet I recognized in him  Iho chief of the "Thiid Division."

"Well," said Lusinski, easting a furtive  ill-comprehensi\e glance around the  loom, "I am a business man, and, like  iii men of my class, like-to get at the  noint at once.

I tried to go to sleep that night, "hardly expecting to succeed in the attempt.  Countless thoughts and ideas rushed and  gvrated "through my mind like so many  whiilwinds and left chaos and inversion  behind them. I fully understood the nature of the papers whicli I left in Ivan's  room, and could foresee -nothing but  death, exile and imprisonment for all of  us. "What is Ivan's plan, anyway?" 1  asked myself distractedly. "Why so  dangerous an undertaking?' -What if  Giesser saw into thc plan and calmly  frustrated it?" To these and many other maddening inleriogations I could  frame no adequate answer. I tossed, myself restlessly from one side to thc oilier till the early hours of thc morning,  when sleep mercifully overcame me.  It was fully nine o'clock when I awoke  and hastily began to diess. Suddenly  the door flew open and the treasurer of  tho "Movement," Sergei Goloshoff, rushed  in and exclaimed:  "Matvey, brotlier, we are lost! Ivan  and many others were arrested Inst  night and they found incriminating papers in Ivan's room. The capital is ablaze  with the news. , I was anxious to know  whether you are among the arrested���������  and here I find you in bed!"  "Calm yourself, Sergei,". I said, with a  smile, "this is part of our own doings."  "What do you mean?" cried Sergei.  I told him of the plot, as much as T  knew, at which he shook his head mournfully, as if he felt sure of a���������disaster.,  "Tell me all the news you heard about  the arrest," I urged, impatiently.  "Well, I just met Yusoff"���������Yusoff is  the son of a 'high official in the Ministry  of the Interior���������said Sergei, settling  down again, "and Yusoff told me what  he overheard his father tell his mother:'  that Ivan Dabroff, along with fifty other  Nihilists, was arrested last night by General Gresser. In Ivan's' room were found  papers and plans which disclose a scheme  for blowing up the Winter Palace with  dynamite and thus killing the Czarand  all his family-with one-stroke.--A list of  names was also found and the whole outfit is now believed to be in the hands of  the Czar." '  ������������������ "I knew Gresser was in for something  desperate," I said, thought fully,"but 1  cannot see why Ivan Bhould bring down  so many others with him.* However, let!  us go down "town and'find out'who are  the arrested."

Everywhere one could see small groups of people gesticulating as they discussed tho  great event. -Amplifications and speculations ran. high and wild; the turmoil  was momentarily" growing ��������� and the  crowds increasing at the same'ratio.

SilenLly Ihej  took charge of me, and led the waj  through many lofty, spacious and beau  tifully furnished apaiLiiients. On wi  went, passing many senlncs who stood  motionless at every door, until wc ar  rived in a large, elegantly furnished  room, where I was bidden to sit dowi  and wait.  Ten minutes after an officer from tin  Emperor's body-guaid/faultlesaly dressec  in a dark blue uniform with huge golii  epaulets on his'broad shoulders, eium  in, and, motioning me to follow him, lei  tho way upstairs, where - sentries wit 1  drawn swords, mute;and immovable  stood at the doors, ready for auyscmci  gency. We passed on in silence till w.'  came to the end of a corridor, where 0  a sign from the, officer the soldiei-  stepped aside; the officer pushed back  the door gently and, nodding me to en  ter, stepped back and closed tha door be  hind me.  The room' in which I found myself wa-  about thirty feet square. The lloor was  covered with dark-red -plush carpet.  Magnificent paintings of former Cs'iu-  adorncd the walls. Several telephones  were,to.be_seen in the vaiious coiners,  but the singular thing which" ai rested my  attention was the fact that the walls  wore simply studded with electric buttons, so that wherever one stood a-button could be touched instantaneously.  There were also four small, gilt-edged  bookcases, and scattered through the  room stood three massive desks.     -   ���������  At the middle desk sat the Czar himself, his right elbow on the desk, while  his outstretched palm was shading his  right eye. In this position he was gazing vacantly across the looni thiough  the large window, apparently in a deep  reverie. 'To his left stood the Minister  of the Interior, motionless.  For a wliile the stillness-was intense,  then the Czar let fall his right hand and  turned   significantly ��������� to the Minister.  ."Your Majesty," began the Minister,  with a profound bow, "this is Mr.  G^ ''  "And so I am betrayed and cheated by  the very servants in whom I had the  most confidence," expostulated the Czar,  mournfully, addressing the Minister.

"J I shall bo ns your majesty commands," bowed the MiuUlei'. deferentially.  "Those mny go," added the Czar, looking in our direction, and Dmitri mid myself left the room, walking b-ickwnrds.  Thai same night Ivan and Dmitri came  to my room and were in li:o best of  spiriLs���������lhey hnd "money lo burn." To  mv question as to how they accomplished tho downfall of Grosser, Ivan'  hiiiiliii'.jly replied: "It is very simple.  Gresser wns looking for a privato secretary. A friend of ours who is in high  quarlcrs recommended Dmitri to hiin.  Dmitri confided to hiin that he was an  ejecLcd Nihilist and that lie w.is anxious  to wreak vengeance on the movement.

The rest is easy."  "You are a daring plotter, Ivan," 1  said, with admiration.  "Nothing risked nothing gained," declared Ivan  axiomatically.  The newspapers never mentioned the  downfall of Grosser, und for a long while  no one knew what became of him. But  we learned, Inter on, that he was transferred to Eastern Siberia, where he was  given the oflice of Ispravnik (Mayor) in  .1 small town on the Amur.  several sotnias (companies) of mounted  Cossacks were 'hastily despatched to per-  form-the~work~tho~pdlice-had~failcd-te-  accomplish.

Those taken  into custody were mostly simple, innocent people who knew no more about  Nihilism than a common Cossack knows  about paleontology. This mystified us  mot a little, but as no rational solution  offered itself, we resigned ourselves to  the inevitable and hoped for the best.  On the fifth day after the arrest I met  Dmitri on the street. He shook hands  with mc, and, slipping" a piece of paper  into my hand, said something about the  weather and hurriedly departed. The  slip contained the following:  "Be sure and remain at home to-morrow." Of tremendous importance."  What could it mean? I worried about  it all day, but could not solve the riddle, and ������ave it up in despair.  Promptly at ten next morning a magnificent carriage drew up at the door  and a smart young officer enquired for  me.  "You are Mr. G ?" said the officer, as he was shown into my room.   "I  beg that you accompany me at once."  "Where to?"  "To the office of the Minister of tho  Interior."  In Russia an officer wlio is simply carrying out the order of his superior is  not allowed to vouchsafe any information whatsoever with regard to his mission.   Knowing this, I did not attempt  ���������aid  "Your name?" -  My heart jumped and fluttered as if  fllledLwith _a_ ton of quicksilver", "_bujf_l.  managed "to stammer out: ~ ^~  "Your high, august and sublime-majesty', my name is Matvey .Taroslav G ."  "Your occupation?" ���������       "..,,'  ."Your high, august and sublime majesty, I am a medical student of the Imperial University."  "Did General Gresser give'you certain  papers to hide in the room'of Ivan Dabroff? How much did he give"you for  doing so?"  "Your high, august and sublime majesty," I faltered, "General Gresser himself  gave' me the papers mentioned and paid  mc two hundred roubles for. doing so."

Cheer up! Confpetition - may be close  and occupation overcrowded, but a new  field ds, opening to indigent and ambitious young men. The duties of those who  enter this field' will consist in eating food furnished : by - the government and teHing how they feel  'afterward.

The work will b'j undei cover, too, with  no heavy lifting,' and will realize the  liiicd man's dream of nothing to do between meals.  This, says the ."Youth's Companion,"  if the United 'State-i Agricultural Department carries oul ils pl.in3, is to be  the new industry de\c'.opcd by the investigation of food adulterants and pre-  jorvatives.

Henry Rose was hanged in the jail  yard at Nelson Friday morning at  throe minutes past 8 o'clock. The  execution was witnessed by 30 people,  including the sheriff and jail ollicials.  Rose maintained that he was innocent  of the crime for whicli he paid tho  extreme penalty of the law, and some  of the jail officials seem to be of the  same opinion; but if Rose did not kill  Cole, who did?  Tliere was no hitch in the proceedings; RadclilYe, the professional hangman of Canada, being the executioner.  Rose left his cell at 7:57 arid was  accompanied to the scaffold by Rev.  Father Althoff of the Catholic church,  and by no' outward sign did he show  fear. The following statement, signed  by Rose was read on the scaffold by  the reverend father :  "I die willingly, because it is God's  will. I have made my petce with  Him. My innocence may be, I pray  God, proved some day. For all that,  I forgive those who are the cause of  my being here. If I have offended  anyone, I beg forgiveness. I bid good  bye to all. I would like to say more,  but make it short, because :t is hard  to me to stand here longer. I thank  all who have been kind to mc in mv  last days."  This statement had been signed by  Rose in the presence of warden Lemon  and Rev. Father Althoff.  Besides Rose and the reverend father,  Sheriff Tuck, Hangman Rudcliffe and  two jail guards were on the scaffold,  hut all below the platform was hid  from view by; canvas. - Underneath  the scaffold was a pit four feet deep.  The drop was 74 feet, and there was  not a twitch on the rope after the  body dropped.  Twenty minutes after the trap was  sprung the jail surgeon, Dr. G. A. B  Hall, pronounced life extinct, and the  black flag was run up from the stuff  on the main portion or the jail building, and remained Hying for au hour.  The jurors who viewed the body  after it had been cut down, were W.  F, Haniford, Fred Bosquet, Arthur  Poole, A Tregillus, A. J. Marks and  H. H. Avery. They returned the  usual verdict in such cases, and the  certificate for the burial of the body  was delivered to the sheriff and by  him handed over to the warden of, the  jail.  The burial, wliich took place within  the jail enclosure, was conducted with  the rites of the Roman Catholic  church, and when the body had been  lowered into the grave, the lid of the  box containing it was removed, and  500 pounds of lune were packed around  the remains and the work of destruction was commenced. By 10:30 o'clock  the grave had been filled up and everything pertaining to the execution had  beeu cleared, away.'���������Nelson Tribune.  swmmronmromronmnmnmnroms  OUR MOTTO :���������Small.
