favorable view of the financial prospects
of Spain says: I have it on high authority
that even partial repudiation is tlie last
solution that will be contemplated by the

probably be accepted by the.Sagasta
party as well as tlie ministerialists 2~""o-
yides for a suspension of the sinking
fund. There will be an increase of revenue from tobacco and other monopolies,
and tin increased import duty on colonial
produce, an income tax on securities, including the coupons of the public debt
and export duty on minerals. The coupons
of the exterior department, however, will
be paid fully and will not be taxed.
V Dr. Nancy's Trial on.
1 .'Bridgeport, Conn., April 3.—Today
marked the ninth day-in the trial of Dr.
Nancy Guilford for murder, iu causing
the death of Emma Gill, of Soiithington,
through a criminal operation. It is believed, hoAve ver, that today's proceedings
when he objects to the repetition of tin
entertainment by the Clan Macdonald,at
which tht; Highland fling was a much admired feature. Docs the secretary know
tliat the kilt has the highest official sanction, that to a Scotchman it is like the
dress-suit in which Paterson notabilities
appear.at great functions, and that eminent Scotchmen are-presented in kilts and
bare legs to the good queen Victoria?
What of the picturesque would remain to
away
Scotland if the kilt were takcii
Where would the glory of the Black
Watch on dress parade be if the famous
regiment fell into lino in trousers? First
iu the hearts of the servant-girls of Great
Britain are the virile ..Highlanders of the
Forty-Second Foot. Their admirers have
never seen, anything improper in those
brawny legs. Battles1, have been won
and kingdoms conquered by the men 'who
'/wore the kilts. The secretary of the
Paterson Young Men's Christian Association may have won notoriety by seeking
to banish the kilt, but it Avill be the
national dress of Scotland after he has
been forgotten.

Forty Miles of BookrShelves.
The library of the British museum lias
been estimated to contain about forty
miles of book-shelves, anil the provision,
of more space is a daily necessity. Perhaps there is no library as great, but
there are many libraries in most civilized
countries which number their contents
by hundreds of thousands. These vast
bulks of materia! require not only the
storage and attention necessary for their
preservation, but must be arranged in tin
accessible form. No doubt much of this
accumulation of books is useless, but it is
not the theory of the modern librarian
that he should decide and distinguish
between the Avheat and the chaff. Much
of our most valuable knowledge of the
past has been gained from books which
had been preserved by chance iu spite of
an apparently justified contempt by the
contemporary standard of criticism. The
librarian litis to preserve and provide
means of ready access to all that comes

A Fairly Good Clean-Up.
The Athabasca company completed, the
March clean-up on Saturday. It is stated
that the return to the company on the
month's operations will bein the lieigh-
boi'hood of $1,2,000, including the gold
saved upon the plates and in the concentrates. During the month the company
milled a great deal of porphyry Avhieh
conies in tit the sides of the ledge, and
carries small values in gold. It is estimated that there is enough high-grade
ore blocked out iu tlie Athabasca to keep
the ten stamps going for tAVo years.

All of Avhieh goes to show  tliat  tJie  OttaAVa correspondailt of the  Toronto Telegram is talking through his  hat,    Mr. Bostock's district now embraces  East aud West Kootenay, Yale. Lillooet,  and Cariboo.    Bast and West Kootenay  make what is  known  as the  county of  Kootenay and are situate  in  the southeast   corner   of   tlie province.     Yale is  knoAvn as the county of Yale and adjoins  Kootenay on the Avest.    Lillooet adjoins  Yale on the north, and   Cariboo lies immediately   north   of   Lillooet.       If   the  .  county of Kootenay Avas made a Dominion electoral district, it Avould simply, be  a natural division, whose people  are dependent almost solely on  the   milling industry,    The jJopulation is in the.neigh  borhood of 30,000, or less than one to the  srjuare mile of area. If Yale, Lillooet  and Cariboo are made an electoral district, it "would be a natural division, about  200 miles Avide and extending north from  the international boundary line about  500 miles. Its population is obout 25,000,  20,000 of Avhom live iu Yale, Avhieh has  about the same area as Kootenay. It  ���would not be a gerrymander to divide  Mr. Bostock's district as outlined aboAre,  and Mr, Bostock could not carry the  Yale-Lillooet-Cariboo district ' -without  making a hard light, even if he could  carry it all.

HOLDING   UP   THE   DRESS   SKIRT
Regulated by Fashion.
So apparently simple a thing as holding up tlie dress skirt in crossing a muddy, pavement is regulated by fashion. In
the days of the great hoopskirts, when
every woman looked liked a monster beehive walking about, the proper way of
avoiding the mud and the dust of the
street Avas to raise the skirt daintily
about an inch, directly in front, using
both hands and taking the greatest care
lest the space between the gown and
pavement shauld be more than an inch.
Our grandmothers tripped daintily
about in this way, with the mincing gait
that aceonipanied the excessive modesty
and fashions of those days.
When the long, heavily trimmed princess gowns came into style a new way of
keeping them out of the dust was'.in-
vented. It took Avbmo.n of great physical
strength to wear such clothes as "were
then hi vogue, and lifting the clumsy
long trai us was equal to an ordinary day's
labor. The fashions of Avbinen's clothes
thirty years ago have probably never
been equalled for ugliness and disregard
of hygiene. Every line of grace in the
figure was spoiled. The waists. Avere
made short, the neck Avas loaded with
: trimmings, and the sleevefc  and  bodices

an uptown hotel. "It Avas nothing at all
to one I had to put up up Avith while the

very little room back here, and I have to

hot.      .

"After the jest had been bandied to

get slightly stale, but each fel I oav thought
it was brand neAv, and when I failed to
grin he set me cIoavii as a stupid ass. At

sauntered up, and, feeling certain he'd
spring the joke, I got ahead of him.
"I just made this," 1 said, handing him
a nickel that fairly siz-ded. He looked
blank.
" 'Ah—part of your- er profits, 1 presume ?' he replied.
'• 'Xo,' says I, determined to make him
see the point or perish in the attempt, 'I
made it- stamped it out on my little machine.    Hoav d'ye like it?'
"He frowned and pushed it quickly
away. 'I beg pardon,' he said, 'but

something else. I couldn't be a party to
anything like that, donclierknoAV.'
"I tried to make him understand that
it Avas a joke, for I didn't knoAV Iioav soon
he might go to the police about it. But,
pshRAv!    It was a hopeless job.

counterfeiting,'he insisted.
"Neither can I,' I replied, 'and that's
exactly why I made it.' That happened
to be the actual truth, but it gaA'e a final
tAvist to the situation that floored the
Englishman completely.
"'Then you consider it comic to get
off something comic because it isn't
actually comic in the least,'he repeated
in great bewilderment. 'Pon me word,'
says he, 'this American humor is too deep
for me.'
"I restrained myself and allowed him
to escape alive, but I'm going to have
the gore of the next man that starts a
continuous performance joke in this
hotel! "	
He Did a Great Work.

All the facts of history combine to disprove   sir Wilfrid  Laurier's    statement
that   sir    Charles    Tupper     served   iu

the work of building  confederation as a
junior partner in the firm   of  wliich "sir
John   A.   Macdonald    contributed    the
brains and sir Charles Tupper the Avind."
It is not disparaging to sir John A. Macdonald to say that he Avas carried  along
in the  Avork  Of founding  confederation
by the necessity of finding some way out
of the deadlock between the old   provin-
ces of Upper and LoAver Canada. He had
the public sentiment of Upper Canada to
aid him, and he had the powerful help of
George Brown.    It Avas easy to  get   Upper Canada into a federation scheme, but
it was  harder  to  reconcile  Quebec, and
harder still to carry.Nova  Scotia, a   province Avhieh was entirely  free from the
troubles   which  drove  the  statesmen of
Upper and LoAver Canada, into  work for
federal union of British  North  America.
There Avas not among all the founders of
confederation a more heroic  figure than
that of sir Charles Tupper.    The  Arision
of a British North American nation  ap-
pealed  to him   and    he  brought NoAra
Scotia  into  confederation  by   the only
meaiis which could hn-ve done the work.
Wilfrid Laurier's services to the  Dominion in these later years have not been inconsiderable, and his.-opponents lmwe not
giAreu him due credit for the work he has
done.    Yet sir Wilfrid Laurier is more
unjust  to  sir  Charles  Tupper  than  sir
Wilfrid's opponents are to him  Avhen he
seeks to deprive air aged-adversary of his
glory, which he won by playing the part
of a hero and a giant in the founding of
this Canadian nation.

~gl':iTsprTi_poi'.ti'ii_)tt' of~~her skiFt"
well towards the back, elevate it modestly
to % distance Of between one ancl one-half
inches, di'aw At gradefujly to the right'
tOAVard the front and trip daintly across
the street." It was altogether a grave
and thoughtful occasion.
With the introduction of untrimmed
skirts, Which were at first cut rather
long in the back, came the fashion pf
holding them up directly in tlie back, and
the women with the longest and best-
developed aj'Sus a\iis the mosc suet-essfid
in performing tho feat. The fashion xviiS
absurdly ungraceful. To see a Wonia'i
clutching her skirts all in a. bunch and
holding them up in the peculiarly vicious
manner of five years ago created a first
impression that they were trying to get
away from her and she must hold them
by main force.
The gtly silk petticoats are no doubt
responsible for tlie present fashion of
raising skirts. It is no longer a question
of modesty or convenience. The manner
of getting your skirt out of the street
depends entirely upon the kind of petticoat your Avear. If it is neAV, bright colored aud of silk you may prepare for a
stage turn in skirt lifting, the object apparently being not to let anybody say of
your silk skirt that it was born to blush
unseen. The usual method is to grasp
both hands full of skirt from either side
and then hold it laboriously. This has
the effect of making eA*ery AVomon look
like a AA*asherwonian Avith her skh*ts
tucked around her Avaist Avading about
the kitchen floor.. If she wears-, a jacket
the effect is exaggerated.
