TELEGRAPHIC NEWS BY WIRE
From Ottawa.
Ottawa, Feb.  15.—The Free Press, the
Liberal organ, foreshadows the failure of
negotiations at Washington, and suggests
to   the   Canadian    ministers    that  they
should, come home.
Assistant city   engineer  Perrault  was
dismissed today for alleged irregularities.
Sir Henri Joly, minister of inland revenue,   is  sending   samples  of    Canadian
grown tobacco to Europe to see if it can
be utilized there.
The Nelson & Bedlington Railway Company is asking the railway committee for
permission to run over the Crow's Nest
Pass railway.•■"If the permission is given
it will save the construction of ten miles
of road. _________
From Winnipeg:.
Winnipeg, Feb. 15.—T. A. Bell, managing editor and director of the Winnipeg
Telegram, announced his retirement iu
the issue of last evening. The electric
power necessary to run the Telegram
presses and type-setting machinery was
cutoff today.     •
Judge Killam will be promoted to the
chief justiceship of Manitoba, vice sir
Thomas Taylor, resigned. '
The Dominion Bank has bought the
corner opposite the postoffice and will
erect,a $50,000 block in the summer.
There was a fire in the business portion
of Hat Portage last night. The loss is
$2000.'
Premier Greenway announced the Liberal policy in Manitoba in an address before the Liberal Club tonight. ■<>
At Calgary today judge Rouleau gave
judgment allowing the disputed ballots
in the Banff election case, thus electing
Brett over Sifton by 4 votes.
rie^ must be established—one from Point
an Basque to Cape Breton, aud  the other
across the strait of Canso.   One's first, impulse in contemplating this proposal is to
ask- 'Why has such a simple thing never
yet been accomplished ?'   Aird the answer
is sufficiently obvious.  It is 'Because Cair-
adaand Newfoundland are not partsofthe
United States, but the possessions of an
alien power.'   If destiny  was not sometimes so deliberate in its movements—if
every   part  of  this   country   had   been
united all these years under the stars and
stripes—the Newfoundland route placing
America within three  days  of   Europe
would now bf* a common place.'   To which
the Toronto Mail and Empire rightly and
emphatically  answers   that there is  no
reason for such a belief.-     When tho time
is ripe for the adoption of such a scheme,
Canadian enterprise will  be easily sufficient for the purpose, aud the British fhrg
will, on the Atlantic,  as it does  on  the
Pacific, continue to fly over the best and
fastest ships.

Impresslon  of  One   Who   Met   the   Insurgent
Chief Two Years Ago.
"I saw Aguinaldo in Hong Kong in the
early part of 1997," saidaE.  B.  Cunningham  of   Liverpool,   who is one of this
year's carnival visitors at New Orleans.
I was representing an English firm at the
time and was arranging a deal for some
Manila hemp with Emile Chargan, a resident factor.  -Oiie day I called atCargan's
office and'fouud him in conversation with
a swarthy young Filipino who was introduced to me as Aguinaldo.   I had heard a
good deal of the insurgent chief, so I looked at him with decided curiosity.     What
impressed me most strongly about him
was his extremely youthful appearance.
He did hot look over 22 a. the outside and
his air of juvenility was borne out by his
stooping shoulders and narrow chest.   He
seemed like a. fragile, unformed boy.   His
features were distinctly Mongolian.    His
cheek bones high,  his eyes oblique,  his
nose short and blunt and his lips rather
thick.   He had no sign of beaid on his
face, but his hair was coarse, black and
very thick. 'His skin, I remember,  was

dozen beasts that they thought at first
were Alaskan dogs. - Dr. Max was a short
distance behind the others of the party,
and was made at by the leader of the
wolves, an animal that he excitedly explained later weighed at least 250 pounds.
Then ensued a running fight with the
wolves, and it was several minutes before
the men beat off their assailants with
clubs.   They killed one of the animals.

A Very Popular Mode of Entertaining at Small
Expense.
There never has been a season in phi-
cago, says the Chicago Tribune, when the
chafing dish and all the fun pertaining to
the service thereof has been as popular as
this winter. It is .really becoming a
"fad" and a happy one it is.
There is no man, woman or child  with,
out faith that he or she knows something
of the gracious art of cooking.   If they
only have a chance to sprinkle the red
pepper  into   the  delicious   viands  it   is
enough.to say ..that they have had a finger
in the pie.   A number of women this wiu-
ter have been   reading  that immensely
clever  book called the "Women of" the
French Salon," in which so much space is I
given to the delights of the "Bel Esprit."
The serving of something dainty from
the chafing dish is bound  to call out not
oulya fund of good humo rbut numerous
quotations and general good fellowship
that most all dinner parties lack.  Ic seems
to be more of a fad for the north side
set, although rnauy delightful affairs may
be mentioned during Sunday evenings in
other parts of the city, and possibly especial mention should  be given to Mrs..
George Pullman and Mrs.  H. L.  Stone,
whose charming after musicals, together
with the well-fed inner man, are most delightful memories of years to come.   The
word ■"chafing dish, suggests; the actual
doing away with all formalities;  sometimes they are extremely elaborate  affairs, costing the hostess a great deal  of
money, but just as enjoyable an evening
may be had at. a small.expense, and  iis
often   happens   the   coterie surrounding
these last affairs are likely-to be exceedingly clever. .'-.._.-'.
There is an interesting little apartment
on the north side, where almost any Sunday evening milady presides over a stoam-.
ing chafing dish, while in a corner nearby stands a dainty tabourette:-on which
repose a large cut glass bottle with the refreshments for such men as ; believe that
life and hope lastlongest in the devotion
to the siphon bottle and old Scotch;    '

FORTUNE   MADB    IN   A   DAY.
The Diamond Fields of South   Africa Made an
Irishman Rich.
The first diamond discovered in South
Africa was purchased in 1807 by a trader
named John O'Reilly.   While returning
from the interior with his cattle he stayed
for a few days, in order to recuperate, at
a large farm on the banks of the Orange
river, owned by aBber named Schalk van
Nickerk.     A    peculiar   stone  had   been
picked   up some time   previously  by  a
Bushmau.boy.   O'Reilly bought it for a
trifle out of curiosity, not knowing himself what it was, and look it  with'him to
a town called Colesburg and handed it to
the resident civil commissioner,  who in
turn forwarded it to Dr. Atherstone in
Graham's Town, Cape Colony.   This gentleman   after  careful examination,  pro;
nounced it a veritable diamond,21i carats
in weight, and worth £5000.   It was subsequently purchased for this price by the
governor "of the colony, Sir P. Wodehouse.
When the find became known a search
for diamonds was instituted throughout
the Hope Town district, but it was not
until    1S09     that    the     existence     of
diamonds in paying quantities was proved
beyond a doubt.   Then a great rush of
diggers from all parts of the globe; was
made to the Orange river and its vicinity.
'. In the latter part of 1870 a lot of miners"
who had  gained  valuable experience in
California  and  Australia   discovered   a
mine about 100 miles" due north of Hope
Town, nearly 1000 miles from Cape Town,
which they uamed after the then British
colonial secretary, the Earl of Kimberley.
The yield of diamonds from 'this big excavation since the opening of the mine in
1S71 probably exceeds eight tons  weight
of precious stones, in value about £45,000,-
000.   The finest diamond  ever found in
South   Africa   was   th«   famous  Porter
Rhodes^   discovered   near the -centre of
Kimberleymiue, on February 12th,c 18S0.
It is a pure white octahodrou,  vveighing
150 caratsandyalued at £50,000.   A splendid; yellow  betahodron   was  found ; on
March, 27th,'188., at the east end of the
mine.:; It/weighed 302carats;:;.Thelargest
derg"o    imprisbnurent    with    hard     labor     for     a       term       not     exceeding
ten years.  The receiver or illicit diamond
buyer upon conviction received  a  maximum sentence of 15  years' imprisonment
at hard labor, the first one-fifth of the
term   to   be  spent in   isolation   and   in
chains, and he was also liable to a fine not
exceeding 3000 dollars as well as confiscation   of  all real and   personal  property
which he held at the time of his arrest
within   the diamond  mining area.   The
prisoner was herded with about 50 others,
consisting of Kaffirs and Bushmen, in a
large dormity cell about 100 feet long by
15 feet wide, was obliged to work 12 hours
a day in the hot sun in a stone quarry,
and had chains weighing from seven to 18
pounds   rivited   on his   legs.     This   law
checked to a certain extent illicit diamond
buying, but it must be remembered that
the inducement to commit the crime was
enormous, many fortunes have been made
in this traffic, and the buyers have slipped
from the colony in the nick of time on the
eve of being trapped.

The University Extension System.
It. E. Gos.uell, secretary University
Association," arrived in the city last everr-
iug for the purpose of organizing a local
reading centre and generally introducing'
the system tP the attention of the people
of Nelson. So far, Vancouver* Kamloops,
Vernon and Revelstoke have been visited,
and.in each place the movement has been
received most favorably, more especially
iu Revelstoke. The system, ifc may be explained, is an adaptation of university
extension in Great Britain which has
been so successful, the difference being
that the instruction is furnished in the
form of a pouibo syllabus, issued
monthly to members, twelve numbers constituting a year's course.
The courses so far arranged are universal
history, universal literature, religion and
theology, political economy, astronomy
and geology, with others to follow. The
subjects are so treated by the professors,
who are recognized authorities, as to provide the student with a libera! and comprehensive knowledge without burdening
him with useless and unimportant details;.
and in addition a large number of the
best and standard authorities are quoted
to supplement the text of the lessons,
thus practically providing a. library of
reference. Each course is complete in
itself.

more laborious wprk in the gun, the prps-
peptpr limiting himself to th.e actual washing and sorting. The digging is purely surface, as at a depth of about two feet a
solid rock is met. Men have expended
their Ikst copper, endured all kinds of
hardships, and never found anything.
Oh the other' hand, men, aftei' a few
weeks' work, found stones to the value, of
£'1000. A marl went to the river to try
his luck. He employed several natives
and topk pnt a li<;erise jbr thr0e; clainrs.
He worked uriceasingly lor about two
months, without ever finding a single
Stone, Then he abandoned his claims
and retttred broke to Kimberley, A week
or two after his departure a Scotchman
named Cameron staked oil! one claim in
the centre of where the former three had
been, hired one Kaffir, and started to
work. On the fourth day, when he was
washing up, ho found p pure white
octahodrou of 47-t carats, which he sold
to a visiting broker on the spot for £0000.
AU commodities of life are very expensive, owing to the great difficulty
of transportation. For a can of condensed milk, is; for a loaf of bread, 2s (3d.;
for a pound of sugar, Is; and for a glass of
whiskey, 3s. The only food which is cheap
is goat's meat, which must be consumed a
few hours after slaughter, owing to the
hot African sun and the utter absence of
ice., This meat can be purchased as live
stock from the constantly traveling Kaffir-
herds for about lid a pound. The climate
is fairly healthy for Europeans, and especially beneficial for pulmonary weaknesses. Female society is out of the question, as far as white women are concerned. From the discovery of diamonds
in South Africa until the present day one
great obstacle the diggers have had always to contend with has been the enormous loss annually of rough diamonds
stolen by the native Kaffir laborers while
at work in the claims or on the depositing
floors. These_ thefts reached such enormous proportions and the diamonds found
such ready market among, the unscrupulous element of the white population,
that it became necessary to enact special
laws to cope with the evil. Upon conviction the maximum sentence for a Kaffir

- The Cost of Living:.
The cost of feeding the prisoners in the
Toronto jail is returned as five and a half
cents a day. The low cost of living in the
jails of the country is a reminder that
the question.of life after all a mere bagatelle. Human beings can subsist on a
trifle and maintain a fine standard of
health. The London (Ontario) Free Press,
commenting on this point, declares that a
doctor in Philadelphia some years ago experimented upon his family of young
daughters, with the result that they continued in good health upon seven cents a
day, being one and a half cents' worth of
luxuries more than are given to Toronto
jail birds.
Max O'Rell in a late essay breaks out in
a mild fury.over a sample of hotel feeding
of which he was a  witness.   The diner
stopped during his meal to  partake of
rum  sherbet.    "Why do you do-that?"
asked Max.   "To help me to go on,"  was
the reply:   To go on'feeding.to &; beastly

Dreaded Old Agre.
Since the death of empress Elizabeth of ;
Austria many stories have beeu told of
her eccentric taste.- and deeds. Like
the great Elizabeth of England she 'was,
sensitive about her personal appearance,
and regretted the ravages of time to more
than the Ordinary degree. Her passion
for violent riding, and long, very quick
walks was connected with her great
dread of becoming stout. She had
brought on her recent ill-health by the
rigidity with which she dieted herself in
order to avoid adding to her weight. Although she Was rather tall, she made it a
point of weighing less than seven stone,
and would practically starve herself for
some time if she turned the scales of the
weighing machine, that always stood in
her bedroom, at anything beyond that
figure. This, in her case, had produced
the anaemia that was the direct cause of
the disorder of the heart for which she
had lately been treated. The warning
should be taken to heart; while exercise
and judicious, careful diet can do a great
deal towards keeping down superfluous
flesh, the starving treatment is very dangerous, and any sort of dieting should
only be undertaken with medical supervision, not in tho first place, but throughout its course.

THE  MINES AMD SMELTERS
The Princess Lead Improving.
"Bob" Nelson, who is running a 50-foot
drift from the main tunnel on the Princess
for mayor Neelands, has completed one-
half of tho work.   Some very high assays
have been had from the cropprngs on the
Princess, and a former owner ran a tunnel in 190 feet to get depth on a very good
surface showing.   The tunnel was swung
away from the showing,  however, and
where it cut the lead it  was comparatively barren.   The work that Nelson ha9
in hand is the running of a drift on the
lead from the point of intersection in the
tunnel for the purpose of getting under
the surface showing.,  This it is expected
to do in at least 50 feet, which will give a
depth of 100 feet.   In the 25 feet which
have been driven so far a considerable
improvement  has   been   noticed   in   tlie
lead, considerable bunches of ore coming
in.   The Princess ore carries copper and
cold values, assay returns of $70 having
been secured from the croppings.
Developing the King of Forty-Nine.
"Jeff"  Steele,,, who is   developing  the
ledge   on   the   King    of  Forty-nine,  on
Forty-nine creek, is meeting with every
encouragement.   He is sinking a 50-foot
shaft on what he considers the hanging    -
wall pf a; 12-foot ledge, which crops out
on the'.claim. • There is' a stringer of ore
on the hanging wall about 20 inches wide
and the rest of the shaft is full of ledge
matter which is very ■ much  broken up.
Steele is of the opinion that' by- the time
he sinks 50 feetjhe will catch the foofcwall
and that the ledge is in place and  that it   .
will be filled with quartz which crops out
in several places on the claim.   The ledge -
matter taken from the shaft assays well. -
A mill test ou 30 pounds gave a return of
$ld.20, of which $3.70 was" gold and the
rest copper.      - 	
The Homestake Development.
Across the creek from tlie.Kingof Forty-
nine, J. Porter is sinking a shaft on the
Homestake   and   Boomer   claims.     This
shaft is now down .15. feet,  and is eight-
feet square. Porter is timbering the shaft ■
and will install a steam hoist so that the
sinking can'be done more expeditiously.
The shaft is full<of ledge matter,  assays
from whichhave given $J0 in free gold.

yesterday as  returning officer;" brought

he secured was close upou (50.per cent cop-   !

a ledge upon which  very little "work has    J"
been done.   Vanstone says that there are
several   good - copper* prospects' in   the '
vicinity of the Siding, and that consider-. -
'able development in 'a small way will be
done upon tlre'claims.in the spring.   '

Game in Atlin.
Shotguns are a nuisance.- -Most of the
.game-Consists_oLsqurrrel,-grouse,-ptarma— _^
gan and snowshoe -or kangaroo rabbits.
A22riflle is the lightest, cheapest and
best. The'birds when flushed take to a
tree and one can pick them off with a 22
as they can the squirrel. The rabbit is
the only thing besides the duck, of which
there are very few, that one can use the
gun for", and 1 have seen more rabbits shot
with a rifle than with a shotgun. Then
the weight oi a shotgun, to say nothing
of tho price, is an enormous consideration,
not. only on the trail, but in the mountain
climbiug. Oneough. to have creepers with
them and colored glasses for the spring.
If you have only one size moceasins they
should be large so as to allow" for .Wrappings inside thdm; which, according to t
the therriioriieter, must be increased pi' decreased. It would be well to have two
sizes; one medium arid one large. The
former for above zero and the latter for
bel'QW. Then the wet shrinks them and
they wear out very quickly. Rubber
boots should be large enough to allow
two pair-of socks for the winter, and by
all means take in a parke to keep the
wind off the body and the snow out of
one's neck going through the timber.
Archibald Lampinao.
Iu the death of Archibald  Lampmau,
Canada loses one of her most gifted sbns.
While there was little in  his poems of a
national strain  he nevertheless drew his
inspiration from the fields and skies of his
native land.   Mr. Lampman was the Canadian Cowper.   His work was marked by
the   most delicate light aud shade,  and
wa«. above all, true to nature. Anyone who
reads "Among the   Millet"   will seet the
colors    in   the    sunset,   hear   the   birds
among the trees,  feel  the breath of the;
morning air and the running brooky-see
creekingcartstoiling along the dusty road,
and almost touch the waving grasses ancl
feathery ferns.   Beauty not strength wtf&.
Larnprnan's characteristic.    His compositions were all delightful descriptions and
pictures from life.   A quiet, simple soul,
Lampmau was one of nature's children,
and it is something of a national loss that
one of the foremost of our too few Canadian poets should pass away before he
,had reached his prime; 2  THE TRIBUNE:   NELSON B. C.   WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1899  &',';-  refer <  lb*'  FUBJ-ISHERS' NOTICE.

FEBRUARY 1     1893  If the result of, the election yesterday  means anything, it means that the people  of this section of Kootenay do not want  to see the old Turner crowd returned to  power ; and the people of this section of  the district but voice the opinions of the  people of other sections of Kootenay.  The prestige of holding a portfolio counted  for something in the contest, but apart  from that was the fact that principles  were at stake���the principles that the  peoole of Kootenay have been fighting  for i'or close on to ten years. The government of which Mr. Hume is a member  .tands pledged to'these principles, and  that they will be inserted in the laws of  the province is not to be doubted. The  personality of the candidates had, little,  in fact nothing, to do with bringing about  the result. Roth were well known to the  old time element, but were alike strangers  to three-fourths of the people who have  come to the riding in the last two years.  The result of yesterday's election is  very satisfactory to the people irr Nelson.  They believe that the Semlin government  should be given a fair trial. . The defeat-.  fed candidate has, just as many personal  friends as he had before the election, and  "the successful candidate has a few more.  A Young Man Who Took a Fatal Chance In a  Game of Poker.  "1 was dealing a game out of the box in  Kansas City in '84 when a man killed hini-  felf in tho upstairs part of the establishment," sard a man with short gray hair  and a pair of piercing eyes. "I was the  first man upstairs after the shot was  fired, and when I looked the man over I  remembered him as a young chap of  rather dissolute habits who had struck  Kansas City with apparently plenty of  money only a few weeks before. There  were five or six four-handed poker games  running in the room. I asked the three  men���cattlemen from Kansas, they were  ���what had ailed their table-mate. They  passed it up.  " 'He just hauls out his gun sudden and  does the Dutch act,' said one of them.  'Maybe he was a hard loser. I believe  we're into him for a few hundreds.'  " 'Didn't he say anything at all before  plugging himself ?' I asked.  " 'Nary a say,' was the reply. 'Just  scanned his hand���pretty fair-sized jackpot, which he had opened himself���then  he reaches behind and brings out that  silver-mounted pop-gun, which don't look  like it's built to kill a full grown man at  that. Then he puts it behind his right  ear���we just looking at him thinking he's  fooling���and off it goes, and there he is  too dead to skin. It's a queer enough  game to get me going.'  " 'A jack-pot, you say ?' I inquired.  Who won?'  " 'The men looked at one another.  They didn't know. The young fellow had  put the ball in his head before the pot  was decided. They looked at their hands  that they had thrown down when the  young man had shot himself. One of  them had tens up on nines, that he had  had on the go-in. Another had  a pair of queens, also on the  go-in,     and    the    last    of    the    three  Wilson & Harshaw  DRAYING and  EXPRESS  had drawn to an ace and failed to connect. Theu I turned over the suicide's  cards, that he had laid down neatly before reaching for his gun. Tnere were a  pair of sixes, an eight, a tray and a king.  I showed the cards to the three men.  They understood.  " 'The ombrey needn't have killed himself over it,' said one of them. 'He might  have got thrown out of the window and  his pile confiscated, but he wouldn't have  got killed.'  "The young fellow had taken a big win-  out chance in a moment of desperation by  opening a jack-pot without holding the  openers, and when it failed to go through  he was afraid of the consequences or  crazy or something, aud so he just let gaslight into his head, which, for all the men  who had been playing with him said^  would unquestionably have happened to  him when they discovered that he had  opened the jack without openers.

It is understood that the Liberal leaders of Nelson are so elated over the result  of the election yesterday that they are  determined to have a newspaper organ.

CURRKNT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  HOW   THE   TRAMP   SAVED   THB   BABY  Back of the bit of a log house ��� the  house in the picture���rose a dense grove  of native timber. Before it stretched,  high, rustling, and of tawny gold in the  September sunshine, a field of corn.  Around it was grassless patch of baked  prairie sod. It seems ridiculous to state  that the house was in the town of Bubble,  or in any town for that matter. The railroad had just been built through southern  Nebraska, and the new towns that sprung  up along its line were absurdly indefinite  places. The" depot had been erected in  the midst of a cleared cornfield. The  lumber piled in the street had been hauled  30 miles to build the general store. The  hotel was a barn, where flapping canvas,  in lieu of partitions of lath aud plaster  separated the sleeping places of guests.  The bank had found a local habitation on  the spot where a wilderness of sunflowers  had for '-uncounted- years stubbornly  flourished. So the little log house that  had been raised in the time when blankets  were hung over windows in the winter  - nights to hide the betraying light from  bands of roving and: relentless Indians,  ,* >f��i\ ddenl y;s fou u d,;-A tsel f j dh cor por a ted^i n-. *3a&  ���' '^towh^th&'town^bE^ ��>7~4?l ��"��.'  ; %���>a��Themouse \vas*Thompsou'sa!The family,'  .xVjConsisted��oi thejfatherJimotheivand child--  ?T< reu^gpod^ness4,* knpw^s^how>many.�� jLtttla  <.fBare;iegged;-> brown-skinned8,!"*Tbllickitfe  I;-"youngsters' they, iwjarptfi-phan ��"JbherLe>was;  ��^'*"tl^e V^log"." t/^jrch^rV^h  ^/Ishdulaer-ed^^^  "������.j- b"east:��>e 3fti^t?\Vjhk"t": pecriljai^bi-eedjlie^af,?;'  ��fe;wKri_5afree".t��y7distiiiguisried^him," ��wlja^  s��-"-pedigrees rurgh-<>hrtyJ6��jbJe_nv_IairriecrV for  ^ >"^lnSf_uat? eved.y "I tzis" ltd ybe" "do;uB���fed:|tl) /ti  s "^he*childre*mcWuld*have**lov��e  .^.iinderauycombination^OK-eulogistic'ad-*"  >���-/j:eetive.s;tlia^vmigh;t"b"e:cm  V^ajijilfedf^  ^^on^lfairiyssprinfe.rii  ." /\>'lBstwar;d.:* The'^ogfliadi" bjaen: adptf.ed'  "tfry?".'thef���"����� T&piiipson's:,^ vfcijfl�����least"H-tjeys  �� "*thdugli"t>"��"they "had adopted hi_uV"BIn truth,  /^h'e.ihad^.adopted" ;,them,:whichjwas-" reallyi  ���sTu��f6rne^ flaftj_.riiig�� if-th!pyj,p"nly*!kn"e^?it^ ��� "For��  '-" fih1_^djj_:*iia)d���;delicatelyy^uiite^ ��Kis:;w^y;  &pasI��L���si x:s.:di iTereh t^  ^dp"mici](e^ lapp^pyjal r.bij.  m��T^btnpsdp?s^itr"etcshiri|f his>0huge bpdy  pnftthe"*back�� pbrchijji^erhaffs t:nejrea.p*n of  ��� "his'-prref erence"' ��Sva. ^ thatAthere "he fpuhd  the "greatest niimbef of- children^  Tcamp*lp'ved childi'en: "*|... ���",  a Whathe had Been called when he "was  only a nicfei sbftv(:,tu8iy ball of a pup, neh  =^tlier=ihehor theylfca^dr^They^called'hihi"  Tramp b^cJiirse he had so uncereitrorii-  ously reckoned upon theii- hospitality.

The . baby of 3, who persisted in  treating him with ah aggressive imperti-  heuce and familiarity was the object of  his most lenient regard. He permitted  her to climb ��>n Jris broad back, to strarrgle  him with her fat, brown arms, to even  take a bone fi'om under his Sensitive  nose.  So it may be seen thab he loved her.  Indeed, everyone loved Veve, and if  Tramp had not done so he would have  been a decided exception. She was a  roiuid, fat, blue-eyed little thing, with  tangled, yellow hair, and a laugh that was  like the rippling of the creek over the  heap of stones the boys had piled in its  bed before the rain followed the drought.  Then she had a pretty trick of bestowing  wet and repentant kisses on the hand of  One whom her wilfulness had grieved  when the moment of her naughtiness has  paf-sed.  "Better get rjd o' that dog o' yourh!"  the town assessor had counseled. "We're  goin' to pass a dog tax���leastways the  council is."  Thompson gritted the short pipe between his teeth."  "Reckon I can pay the levy," he answered.   "My wife likes him."  "He's got a bad streak, that stray dog  o' yourn," the  blacksmith said, casting  .   the eye of a connoisseur���an envious eye,  by the way���on Tramp.    "I'd   sell   him  cheap if I was you."  "But you ain't me, you see." the farmer  returned placidly. "I don't want to sell  him.   The children like him."  "Why don't you git rid ot that ole ani-  n'rile and trade for one o' the pointer pups  down to the liv'ry?" asked a friend who  got a commission on every pointer pup he  sold.  To which Thompson, slightly exasperated, replied: "The baby likes him !"  That settled it;   ,  It was September. The intensely blue  Nebraska sky arched over the parched  prairie.   In and around the town of Bub-  and(he  Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  ble the corn ^cracked���a sound that was  like groaning. The sunflowers curled up  their dusty leaves. The dusky carmine  of the Sumac was veiled by a pale powder. In the timber back of the little  house there was no sound. Not a leaf  stirred, not a blade whispered, not a blossom uodded ! A spell seemed upon the  world that hot, breathless, suffocating  September afternoon.  Suddenly the quiet was broken.  "Got a revolver?"  The cry was  wildly hurled across the  hot hu��h.  Mrs. Thompson heard it���came out.  "Got a revolver?"  Haifa dozen men were scrambling over  the rude fence, and others were skirting  the corn in the foreground.  "Yes.   Why?"  "Give it to us, quick. There's a mad  dog hereabouts. We lost sight of him in  the timber. He's bit half the dogs in  Bubble. They've got sight of him now!"  excitedly. "Hurry up with that revolver!" ; .  The woman ran indoors.  "Make haste!" a voice screamed after  him.    "It's coming this way!"  There ifc was���a gaunt, lank, half-famished looking thing. It was coming onward with the direct, bounding speed,  the foam-dripping jaws, and bloodshot  eyes of madness!"  "My God!" rang out the shrill voice of  the woman, who had just handed the revolver to the man who had asked for "it.  "Look there! My little girl!. My baby!"  There, beside the old log farmhouse, in  the centre of the back yard, played a lit:  tie child���only 3 that spring. Her short  gown of blue gingham flapped around her  bare, brown, dimpled knees.

England's Future. Queen.  Queen Victoria recently admitted that  pf all the members of her royal family,  excepting only her youngest daughter,  the princess Beatrix, she has most love  for her probable successor^ the princess  of Wales.  Alexandra, the next queen of England,  will enjoy in a way all the power wielded  by her husband, and will have the full  social prestige now belonging to her  mother-in-law.  The princess of Wales has never concerned herself with state matters, although she must know what is going on.  She has always been absolutely indifferent to such things, unless swerved to one  side or the other by personal favoritism.  She admires Asquith, who married  "Dodo," and corrid have secured for him  almost any position, but she was either  too indifferent or too careless to ask, and  the viceroyship, which might have  been filled by him. to-day, belongs to another. The queen, who knows  every line of the possibilities of her  statesmen, has ever been a politician,  looking for improved service, civil and  military, but Alexandra has never worked  along, political lines, and never will; she  ���is not that kind of a woman.  Alexandra has her little weaknesses-  all womanly ones. She is fond of novels,  a thing the queen despises, unless of the  classic sort. She dislikes famous people,  such as authors and artists, for she is  timid in the face of geuius, while, the  queen will have nothing to do with any  other. Alexandra loves fancy work, and  can outline a worsted dog to perfection,  while the queen never takes a stitch.  Alexandra notes the hang of the skirt  and the cut of the sleeves. Victoria is  calmly oblivious to everything except  court dress. Alexandra has been preserving herself to have her royal "fling," and  she is woman enough'to insist upon it.
