 ESABLISHED  MONDAY  MOEMNG,  JANUAEY 27,  1902  DAILY EDITION  *s  FRANCE   WILL    PUBLISH  CORRESPONDENCE  is more distinctly in politics than- the.  American Secular Union. The temorary  organization was formed at Buffalo last  October with T. J. Bowles of Muncie,  Indiana, as president; and W. F. Jamieson of Cincinnati, as secretary, who  were in charge after the national convention, but other officers will be elected  tomorrow. The free love element was  not admitted into the new organization,  but the woman suffragists were admitted.  TOUCHING ACTION OF THE POWERS BEFORE OUTBREAK OF  SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR  NEW YORK, January 26.���The London correspondent of the Tribune says  in a special dispatch, printed today: "If  the chancellor of the exchequer were a  radical he could find a source of revenue  in the taxation of wedding presents.  The magnificence of these gifts is the  feature of every fashionable marriage,  and there is a record breaking tendency.  If lady Wicklow had four hundred and  Mrs. Heueage sixty-six presents, there  were over seven hundred at the marquis  of Londonderry's house after the marriage of his only daughter to lord Staver-  dale. A strong force of detectives were  required for the protection of the diamonds contributed from the royal and  from all the great houses of the united  kingdom.  The marriage at St. Peters, Eton  square, was witnessed by the smartest  people of London. It was a picturesque  affair with four little girls in empire  frocks of old lace with cloth of gold,  sashes, and gold shoes and stockings.  There were six additional bridesmaids  in similar costumes, with touches of  Russian sable and large white hats.  The bride wore an exquisite gown, of-  ivory satin, with lime rock lace. Tip"  bridesmaid carried a gilt basket filled  with yellow jonquils.  Paul Kester's play Mademoiselle  Mars, while inferior to Sweet Nell of  old Drury, was heartily received last  night at the Imperial, and provided Mrs.  Langley with an opportunity of appearing in a series of artistic custumes and  also for acting with unusua 1 spirit.  Lewis Walter made up well as Napoleon, and delivered his lines with a good  voice, but the stage triumph of the evening was Mrs. Langley's. It was a costume play with theatrical, rather than  dramatic situations, and introduced Napoleon's mother and sisters, Fouche,  Talleyrand and many familiar figures  of the empire period. It was splendidly  staged and costumed and interested the  audience in the adventures of the actress of the Comedie Francaise. Its favorable reception was emphasized by the  enthusiastic manner of the audience.  The decision of canon JJore that the  consecration service as bishop must be  deferred on account of. legal objections  to his confimation, is commended by  -churchmen" of all schools, although the  congregation in the aDDey was disappointed. The controversy may not end  until an appeal be made to the highest  courts on the question of heterodoxy on  ' which the legal objection_are based.  The Paris correspondent of the Triune says: "The explanations of the foreign office at Paris, Berne, St. Petersburg and Vienna, elicited by lord Cranborne's statement regarding the alleged  proposals of the continental powers to  intervene in favor of Spain during the  Spanish-American war, are published  -today--in-the-Erench_,papers^.and_itiis_i  CURE   FOR   CONSUMPTION  Tesla's Electrical Current  NEW YORK, January 25.���Experiments are being made on a most elaborate scale in London with a modification  of Tesla's high frequency electrical currents in the treatment of consumption.  It is stated that some" remarkable results have been achieved.  Says the London correspondent of the  Herald:     These   experiments,   for   the  most part, have been quietly conducted  by D,r. T. J. Beckham, an eminent west  end surgeon, in the course of his private practice,  but with the knowledge  and   approval   of  leading  consumption  specialists.   Dr. Beckham has had fitted  up  a  most elaborate  appartus  for the  production of. electricity in the particular  way in which it is used, the result of  which is that a current of 80,000 volts  is produced, of such high frequency and  administered  in  such  small  quantities  that the consumptive  patient  may  receive it  without  the   slightest injury.  The awe inspiring force of this voltage  may be best appreciated when it is remembered that only 500 volts are employed for driving trains on a railway.  Yet the patient is not conscious of the  enormous.eiectrical pressure.   Dr. Beckham's exep^rience is that in very bad  cases   of/'consumption,   the  cough   has  been greatly reduced, night sweats have  disappeared, the appetite improved and  there has been a great gain 4*o%veight  and general health, so that evjji if the  consumption bacilli have notSbeen destroyed, it is certain that their virulence  has   been   much   decreased;   that  they  have  been brought under control,  and  that the patient has felt cured.   A"jloubt  entertained by phythis specialists who  do   not   question   this   temporary   improvement, is whether it is anything but  a   mere   exhilaration.     Dr.    Beckham,  however, has great faith in the future of  the system.  cessful, four million dollars of Andrew  Carnegie's wealth will be used in the  establishment of libraries in Mexico.  Of this amount one fourth is planned to  be used in the establishment of libraries at Chihuahua, Durango, Tampico,  Torreon and San Luis Potosi. General  Hanna has taken up the matter with  Mr. Carnegie direct, and feels confident  of success. He says he expects Mr. Carnegie to be particularly interested in  the founding of a library in this city  because of the establisment here of a  $10,000,000 steel plant, and the subsequent importing of skilled workers from  the states.  TWENTY VICTIMS  i  BODIES RECOVERED FROM  THE MINE  Cassels to Succeed Gwynne  TORONTO, January 25.���At the annual meeting of the Dominion Sheep  Breeding Association yesterday it" was  decided to send a special agent to the  Northwest to open up trade in thoroughbred sheep similar to that which is  already so profitable in cattle. An evening paper says Walter Cassels, K. C,  of the firm of Blake, Lash & Cassels of  this city, will likely succeed the late  justice Gwynne on the supreme court  bench should Hon. David Mills decline  the position.  A CHAPTER OF FATALITIES  THE   WOitST  MINING   DISASTER  EXPERIENCED   IN   THE  HISTORY  OF  THB  STATE  dent S. M. Felton. of the Chicago & Alton  Railroad Company, and wont at once to  Mr. Felton'- restdsnce, where he spent the  day. General Tart said today: "The onlv  answer I have to make to the ideas ot individual observers, who declare that the  true condition in the Philippines is being  concealed, or that we are hugging delusions of peace that can never be brought  about, is that the government Is concealing  nothing and its conclusions are not based  on wild theories, but substantial facts."  Governor Taft left tonight over the Penn-  sylvanlan road for Cincinnati.  GERMANY'S COOL RECEPTION  deemed probable that eventually the  question will be put In the chamber of  deputies to M. Delcasse, minister qf  foreign affairs, calling for the production of the ' documents and dispatches  showing exactly what was the attitude  of the French government toward the  United States in March and April, '98.  Some time must, however, elapse before  making public the correspondence, because by diplomatic usage in such  cases, the assent of those concerned  must previously be obtained.  The various branches of the organization of the Alliance Francaise express  the'desire that the full official corres-  ppudence' should be disclosed, in the  firm belief that the friendly attitude at  that period of the French government  {b.*ff"ar'dv'the United States will thereby  be established beyond any doubt. Notwithstanding the difficulty with which  French diplomacy is confronted, namely  with proving a negative���that is to say  In demonstrating that France was never  a party to any joint or collective proposal of Intervention���those who ori-  'ginally selected the Paris cable service  of the Tribune as a medium of putting  the continental case before the American public, and which has resulted in  drawing from lord Cranborne and from  the foreign office of the European capitals so much light on this point of  history, now disclaim the endeavor to  prove too much. They admit that England's friendship toward the United  States in the spring of 1898 was unquestioned and patent to the world,  but what they do object to is that the  frequently reiterated protestations of  ithat friendship: should invariably be  coupled with assertions that the governments of France and Russia, during the  spring of 1898, were unfriendly toward  the United States.  New Political Party Formed  CINCINNATI, January 26���The national liberal party was organized here  today by representatives from all parts  of the country. The preamble to the  new constitution, which will be adopted,  declared for the separation of church  and state to the extent of abolishing  chaplains in the army and navy, legislative bodies and all public institutions,  the taxation of church property and the  abandonment of sabbath observance.  The party is the amalgamation for political purposes of free cntnkers, and it  Vancouver News Eudget  VANCOUVER, January 26 ��� [Special  to The Tribune.]���Much damage was  done by the recent storms up the coast.  At Shoal Bay the wharf and other buildings have been carried away, and other  damage done.  No evidence was taken yesterday  morning at the meeting of the fisheries  commission. The fishermen are waiting  for the canners to submit evidence, and  the canners are waiting for the fishermen. When the session opened this  morning no witnesses were ready, and  after talking informally for half an  hour, the commission adjourned. Professor Price referred sarcastically to  the position taken, saying it had been  stated that the "grand lodge" of fishermen would meet Saturday night to decide on a course of action, and he supposed the "grand lodge" of caners would  also meet and do the same thing.  Dispatches from Seattle state that the  steamer Mainlander, which went ashore  on St. Claire island on Friday morning  ^ina^blinding-snow-storn,-was-not-badly_  injured, and it is expected she will be  got off without delay. All passengers  were taken ashore in the State of Washington, and arrived safely in Seattle.  It was impossible to keep the course owing to heavy wind.

Makes Up Northern News  SEATTLE, January 25.���Two assaults  by robbers, three accidental deaths, the  passing away of a prominent Dawson  resident,  and  three people fatally  injured  by other means,  Is  the  list of  fatalities reported from Alaska by the  steamer Alki.

Cattle on  the western ranges are suffering, and  much loss is likely to ensue unless the  situation shall improve.

He was  77 years old, and wealthy. In view of  the fact that the public knew of no  trouble which had come to the doctor,  temporary insanity is given as the  cause.  Of Prince George of Wales  BERLIN, January 25. ��� Today passed  without any disrespect being shown to the  prince of Wales, who arrived here yesterday to represent king Edward at tho celebration of the birth of emperor William  next Monday. German crowds have a too  deeply abiding respect for royal personages  and are too thoroughly policed to openly  show an unfriendly feeling toward them,  but in a city where the lifting of one's hat  is as universal as ordinary civility, it was  singular to see the passing crowds with  never a hat raised and to hear no murmur  of applause. The last experience of the  prince of Wales abroad was his departure  amid thunderous anplause from the shores  of Newfoundland, while the streets through  which the prince was obliged to be driven  today on his way to visit the British ambassador here, were without a single British flag. While receiving the most elaborate  attention from the family of emperor William and from German officialdom, the  prince of Wales must feel the chilling attitude of the German public. Almost all the  newspapers refrain from editorial comment  on. the visit.  BERLIN,    January    25.���The   prince    of  Wales, who is to represent king Edward at  the   celebration   of   the   birth   of  emperor  William   tomorrow,   visited   the   Prussian  prince count Von    Buelow,    the- imperial  chancellor, various ambassadors and other  distinguished    personages     this    morning.  Soon after 1 o'clock the emperor and the  prince  drove  in  a  closed  carriage  to  the  barracks of   the   First   Royal   dragoons.  Queen  Victoria's  own.   A  triumphal   arch  of evergreens had been erected in front-of  the porch of the barracks,  and the regiment was drawn up in parade order. The  band played the British anthem, and after  the regiment had marched past the emperor and the prince'of Wales, the latter proceeded to the regimental mess room, where  luncheon was  served.  The  party included  the British ambassador to Germany, sir F.  C. Lascelles and his staff, princes Albrecht  and Wilhelm   Ertel-Frederich   and   prince  Henry of Prussia. The luncheon terminated  at 3 o'clock, when the emperor returned to  the castle and the prince of Wales took a  train for Potsdam, there to visit the duchess of Albany and to lay a wreath upon the  tomb of the late empress Frederick. In the  evening emperor William and the empress  gave a dinner party to the prince of Wales  in  the!Elizabeth    hall    of    the  castle,  at  which the British minister, count Von Buelow and count "Von AValdersee were present.  Emperor  William,   in   his  speech  toasting  king Edward, at tho military luncheon in  the barracks of the First Royal dragoons,  itouchingly. refe**red .to-the; doa.tb.-of queen  Victoria,   and   adverted   to   the  wonderful  colonial tour of the prince of Wales as exemplifying the greatness and extent of the  British empire. He invited the company to  drink to the health of the prince of Wales  as the representative of the British army,  to which toast the prince of Wales suitably  responded.  was   fast   and   furious.    The   wholesalers  played heavily around the C.  P.  R.  goal,  but the  C.   P.  R.   forwards as  repeatedly  camo to the rescue. Shortly afterwards the  wholesalers  scored    a    shot    from    Perry  Wright.  No  more  scoring was  done  until  within a few minutes of half time, when  the C. l-\ R. boys scored, followed by the  wholesalers, who again scorejl as half time  was called. When play was resumed again  a great deal of wild shooting was done, and  the referee's whistle frequently called "offside." The only really good piece of combination play was in the second half, when  the C.   P.   R.   played  hard  on  the  wholesaler's goal.  But owing to  the successful  efforts  of the goal  keeper the boys were  not able to score. Play in the second half  continued  until  within about fifteen  minutes   of   time   before   the   C.   P.   R.   boys  evened up the score, making it 2 to 2. But  a few minutes before time was called the  wholesalers again scored,  and a few seconds later scored a fourth.  Play was resumed for about two minutes when referee  R. Carley, called time and the game was  won by the wholesalers by a score of 4 to  2.   The  teams  were  made  up  as  follows:  Wholesalers���George Nunn, D. M. McDonald,   A.- Longhurst,   W.   Hipperson,   Perry  Wright, Jack Nunn and Jack Fraser; and'  C. P. R.���W. McCandlish, J.

News of the strike was brought to the city  by J. G. Gollard, who took up seventeen  claims, all of which are said to be rich  in free milling- gold.  Distributing Arms  NEW YORK, January 25.���The revolutionary steamship Libertador, formerly the  Banrigh, has successfully distributed arms  along the coast of Venezuela, cables the  Port of Spain, Trinidad, correspondent of  the Herald. There is an insurrection in the  part of the state of Garabobo against the  Castro government. Telegraph lines have  been cut within flye miles of Valencia.  Wrecked a Bank  NEW YORK, January 25.���Henry St.  John Dix, who is charged with having  wrecked a bank at New Whatcom, Washington, was brought to this country on the  steamer St. Paul, which arrived from  Southampton today. Dix was arrested in  England some timo ago and was eventually extradited. He was in charge of the  sheriff of Whatcom,  Washington.  Governor Taft is Hopeful  CHICAGO, January 25.���William H. Taft,  civil governor of the Philippines, arrived in  Chicago this afternoon from San Francisco. He was met at the depot by presi-  8tory Doubtless Exaggerated  LONDON, January 25.���The Daily News  has published from its correspondent at  The Hague, who, it is claimed, has been  very accurate, the following dispatch taken  from private advices: "News from South  Africa has reached military circles here  that the power of the Boers over Cape  Colony is increasing daily; that tho rebellion is constantly spreading and that the  colonists are joining the Boers in steadily  Increasing numbers. The executions of com-  . mandan Lotter ( October 11th, 1901.) and  commandant Scheepers (January 18th, 1902.)  have had the result of deciding the loyalists to join the Boers, whose position is  persistently reported to be more favorable  than ever." The same private advices assert that the British suffered a dozen defeats from September to November. 1901.  of which no mention is made in lord Kitchener's report. The Daily News, commenting  on this dispatch, confesses that Its statements are'probably exaggerated, but is of  iitheijoplnion^that^the^deniaIs_of-Mr.--Ba!=--  four, the government leader in the house of  commons, that there had been any Boer  overtures for peace, points to the fact that  the Boers believe their position to be less  desperate than Is generally supposed.  Germans Sors This Timo  BERLIN, January 25.���The German press  throughout Germany shows irritation over  the alleged attempts to throw suspicion on  hte policy entertained toward the United  States by Germany before the outbreak of  the Spanish-American war. Nearly all the  German newspapers regard these attempts  in the same light as does the Deutsche  Tage Zeitung. Dwelling upon the motives  which actuated the Interpellation of Henry  Norman in tho Uritish house of commons,  on January 20th., that paper says: "In the  London report- cabled to New York It is  alleged that Germany was tin* Instigator  of a plan to bring about Intervention by  the European powers against the United  States. This is a direct blow in the face of  truth. But what of it.7 It might, perhaps,  on the verge of prince Henry's visit, create  ill feeling in the United Stales, in which  case the object underlying Mr. Norman's  Interpellation, and the answer thereto of  loc_ Cranborne, as well as that of the inventions sent abroad by English newspaper  agencies, would be fulfilled."  British Do Not Want Ching  PEKIN, January 25.���As tho result of the  pressure brought to bear on him, prince  Ching will memorialize the throne, asking  that more liberality be shown in the treatment of the Pekin Industrial Institution,  which the court recently ordered to be  closed on tho suggestion of Chen Pi, the  reactionary governor of Pekin. It is reported that a son ot prince Ching has been  appointed Chinese envoy to attend the coronation of king Edward. Sir Ernest Satow,  tho British minister, has informed the Chinese that there is no objection to the appointment, but prince Chun's brother  would have been preferred. The appointment has not yet been confirmed by an  edict.

Swannell on Saturday evening. All the members  of the board were present, and owing to  the projected absence of the secretary for  a considerable period, F. W. Swannell was  appointed secretary pro tern. The first  business was the discussion of the estimate prepared by the linance committee,  which is to be submitted to the council at  tho meeting tonight. The chief Item, of  course, was the amount required for the  payment of salaries. This item contained  an appropriation for an increase of salary  to all the teaching staff. In this connection  the matter of grading the teachers was  discussed at some length, but it was finally  agreed that the board were not in a position to undertake the work without the assistance of the principal, and It was agreed  that.a special meeting should be held for  that purpose on Friday evening.  Applications were received for the position of janitor from seven applicants. Tlie  matter was decided by ballot and the appointment awarded to W. H, Jeffs.  Tenders were received from D. McArthur  & Co. and an outside firm for the supplying  of desks for the furnishing of the high  school, the contract being granted to the  former.  It was arranged that the teacher's checks  should be issued on the first Wednesday  following the first Tuesday in the month.  A committee, consisting of the chairman of  the board and tho chairman of the finance  committee, should serve as a stationery  committee to decide on the matter of stationery required by the board^and supply  tho same.            .   Death of��Father Pat  There will be deep and general regret at  .the news that Rev. H. Irwin is dead. The  news was received, says the Colombian, in  a letter from archdeacon Small to a resident of New Westminster. No details of  the melancholy event are given in the letter, beyond the fact that Mr. Irwin's death  occurred in a hospital in Montreal, and that  both of the deceased's feet had been badly  frozen. "Father Pat," as Mr. Irwin was affectionately called by thousands of the people of this province, was a clergyman beloved and esteemed for his unselfish character and the zeal with which he labored  for the good of the people among whom  his lot might be cast. No labor was too  great; no journey too difficult or trying for  him to take to minister to the sick or dying. In the mining and railway camps of  Southern British Columbia "Father Pat"  was as well known as he was popular, and  his cheery voice and helping hand have  often cast a ray of light and comfort in  the sick chamber or the solitary cabin in  the mountains. Only recently these columns  recorded the deep regret manifested by the  people of Kootenay and Boundary Creek  at his departure from the field in which  he had labored so zealously.���News Advertiser.  LONDON, January 26.���A report from  lord Kitchener, from Johannesburg,  gives the news of the important capture  of general B. Viljoen in the neighborhood of Lydenburg, Transvaal Colony,  as well as the captures of small parties  of Boers elsewhere. - The capture" of  general Viljoen, who was general  Botha's most able lieutenant and who  has given the British a deal of trouble  in the past, has created lively satisfaction in London.  PRETORIA, January 26.��� Colonel  Wilson, last Saturday captured twenty  Boers near Frankfort, in the Orange.  River Colony. He was preparing at  dawn the next day to move away with  his captives when a superi6r~~_orce of  Boers made a desperate effort to recapture the prisoners. A hot fight ensued,  in which all but three prisoners escaped,  and in which a few were killed or  wounded on both sides.  Want Fish Duties  ST.  JOHNS,  Newfoundland,. January  26.���It is argued in some official quarters here that if the British government  is prepared to withdraw from the inter-,  national sugar conference ������: at Brussels,  and to provide a bounty on West Indian sugar   in   order   to   assist   Great  Britain's   West  Indian  colonies,   which  are inhabited by blacks, Great Britain,  should also provide a bounty on New-'  foundland fish, and thereby assist this  colony which   is   wholly   inhabited   by.  whites.    It is held by certain officials  that this action should be taken by:the  British government as a return for: the  renewal by Newfoundland of the French  modus vivendi.     . -  Wholesalers Win at Hockey  An evenly contested hockey match was  played at the rink Saturday evening between the C.

The principal features are increases in deposits from $12,015,710.77 on Htst  December, 19u0, to $13,*iU*-,_2-1.0:{ on December  31st, 1901. The profits carried forward are  $9l,SS2 this year as compared with $59,,S12  last year. A strong indication ot the good  management of the bank is the fact that  current loans remain practically the same  a.s last year, the Increase in deposits being  invested in a more liquid asset in the shape  of railroad bonds und debentures and call  and short loans on stocic and bonds. This  policy of the bank should commend itself  to the large body of puollc depositors in  chartered banks who rely chiefly on the  soundness and good management of the  bank to whom thoy entrust their deposits.

An Enjoyable Evening Promised  Preparation for the production of the  grand musical festival on Thursday evening In the opera house is in a well advanced  stage. Rehearsals will be held on Monday,  Tuesday and Wednesday for the full orchestra, chorus and principals. As has already been noticed this class of music,  -.yhich has never been produced in Nelson  before, should prove a musical education in  itself to the public. Rossini's Stabat Mater  i.s a musical composition of the lirst-chiss  in oratorio and it promises to be capably  rendered under Herr Steiner's baton. The  Hallelujah chorus from Handel's Messiah  will be somewhat in tho nature of a surprise, as the volume and tone of the chorus  voices are remarkably strong and pure  throughout.  3 xtension of the Steel Trust  CHICAGO, January 25.���Albert C.

The superintendent overtook her just as  she met Stahl and was drawing her revolver. She says Stahl jilted her for  another girl, and that she intends to  kill him on sight. Stahl refuses to talk  further than to say that the girl has no  reason to atempt his life.

John Houston, Manager. Nelson, B. C.  ���J-  ���r*  ���M"M"M-M"M"I"H-  NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS  BY   CARRIER.  *  *  +  +  *  *  *  *  *  ���H-Hri********  ���W"H-*H"I"M��M"1"I-  n  On Saturday next, subscribers  whose Tribunes are delivered by  carrier .will be expected to pay  the carrier TWENTY CENTS, the  subscription price for the current  week.  Southern Kootenay's mining record for  the past, week has been especially pleasing.   It was started with the announcement that the rich galena lead of the  Last Chance had been found in the long  tunnel, at a depth of 1-00 feet;  which  was doubly welcome as.a reward to the  men whose pluck, and faith in the Slocan, induced them at an expenditure of  many thousands  of dollars to set the  pace in the matter of deep level mining.  Then came the news of the rick strike  in the Silversmith property of the Slocan Star group.    Three or four weeks  ago a nice body, of ore was encountered  upon  the Silversmith, but it was kept  as  quiet   as   possible   pending   further  development.     This   subsequent   work  ^was^fully^up^to-^expeetationsr'and^oh"  Tuesday last the report was given out  that the showing had been proven up to  three feet of exceptionally high grade  ore.   The Slocan Star for years has had  the reputation of being the richest mine  in British Columbia.    It is now known  to   be  even  richer than was  formerly  supposed.    Satisfactory  as   the  week's  development has been in the Slocan it  may fairly be said to have been equalled  in   the  Boundary  by  the Granby company   inaugurating  phipments   of   one  thousand tons of ore per day, with a  still further increase in prospective until the shipments reach fifteen hundred  tons.    These achievements should convince anyone that Southern British Columbia is more than keeping pace with  the development in other portions of the  globe.  Commencing yesterday the Granby  mines at Phoenix began shipping 1000  tons of ore per day. The magnitude of  these shipments may be easiest understood when it is explained that it will  require two solid trains of seventeen  cars each to move it from the mines to  the smelter. Not only will the Granby  company, maintain shipments at this  rate, but in a short time the management announce they will be further increased to 1500 tons daily. This is a  rate of development of which any country should be justly proud.  The Sandon dispatch which appeared  in The Tribune on Saturday was rather  misleading in that it admitted of the  construction that the Everett smelter  had made a break, in the matter of  treatment rates, which was not contemplated by the smelters at Nelson and  Trail. So far from this being the case  the rates quoted are those which were  decided upon some weeks ago by the  three smelting concerns purchasing  Slocan  lead   ores.     There   have   been  rumors in the press of the Slocan of in-  jpedendent action on   the   part   of  the 1 of the newspaper   readers   for   every  By T. P. O'Connor  How is it that some public men manage to attract popular attention and  popular favor in a fashion that other  men cannot reach���other men, who intellectually and morally, are quite as  good, if not better, than ��� the popular  idol? There were many years during  which the most attractive figure to the  man in the street was lord Beaconsfield.  If you do not know the facts of real  life and the indisputable narratives of  history, would you have believed that  the idol of the English crowd could ever  have been a man Eastern by birth���by  appearance���in manner���in the very innermost part of his being? And yet I  remember the day when the thanksgiving service for the recovery of the  prince of Wales, as the king then was���  the one figure that seemed to me to  attract the love of the huge and surging  crowd was lord Beaconsfield. And I  saw him pass from the stand at which  I had a seat in the Strand, just close  to Temple Bar, there was everything to  my mind, in his appearance, that ought  to have repelled the love of an English  crowd.  It was one of the peculiarities of lord  Beaconsfield   that   while   in   many  respects he had become the most English  of Englishmen,  he: remained  in   other  the most Oriental of Orientals.   And tlie  dress���always     affected,     whether    in  youth or age���was always Oriental.    It  consisted, in youth, of endless and innumerable chains; of silk and cambric  frills on his vest, of plush linings to his  coats of the crutch-stick long before the  crutch-stick had become known to other  and less dandified men.    In old age, it  took  its =shape^ in_ garments  of many  colors  that  might have^delightred^tlie"  soul of the Mosiac Joseph,  but would  have   caused   tortures   to   the   count  D'Orsay of the Beerbohm Tree impersonation.   I remember -seeing lord Beaconsfield    walking    down    Parliament  street in the very height of agitation  over   the   Eastern   question,   when   he  had become to half the population the  embodiment   of   imperial   defence   and  glory, and to the other a somewhat aggravated specimen of the devil returned  to    earth���I    remember    him    walking  down Parliament street in a short, drab-  colored covert coat, large plaid trousers,  a variegated waistcoat,  and  a pair of  lavender kid gloves.   Put on top of this  long black   ringlets,   and   the   yellow-  parchment face and strong Jewish nose,  and you have a picture of a man who  might have been the king of the Gipsies  out for a bank holiday.    And similarly  on   Thanksgiving  day,   he  had   a  long  whitish brown coat, a light colored pair  of trousers, and altogether looked like  a gentleman who might have been asking the odds at   Epsom   towards   the  close of the eighteenth century.  The magnetism of   lord   Rosebery   is  due,   of   course,   to   entirely   different  causes.      But    the   magnetism    exists.  There he is,  at this  moment, without  any great office, apparently also without  any immediate prospect of great office;  the   political   opponent   of   one   great  party, the party in power with a huge  majority���and only grudgingly the representative    of    another    great    party,  which  is  in  opposition  and  in an  apparently hopeless minority.    If a minister   in   power   speaks,    his   slightest  words attain importance because of the  huge forces which his words can be put  into being and activity.    The fact that  you   can   move  fleets   into   action,   and  armies   into   the  field,   and   decide  the  lives or deaths of hundreds of thousands  of  your   fellow   beings,   is   quite   sufficient to lend eloquence to your lightest  word, and the   speed   of   lightning   to  your   most   hesitating   utterance.     But  lord   Rosebery  has   no  such   power  at  present, and his words have to depend  for their influence on their appropriateness and on his own personality.    And  yet the whole army  of reporters  goes  down   to  a  provincial   town;   the  telegraphic authorities are in despair lest  they cannot reconstruct in time the telegraph  wires  that a storm  has thrown  down, so as to satisfy the avid appetite  syllable this one man is going to utter;  and, in short, there is an amount of  preparation for the speech which showed that it was regarded as something of  an epoch-making event.  Is there any other man in the kingdom today who could excite so much attention? Not lord Salisbury���he is a  spent force; nor Mr. Balfour���he Is somewhat discredited; nor Mr. Chamberlain;  the public has a certain instinct that it  knows what he is going to say, and he  certainly does say what the public expects of nim. I mention no other names  because I have not the space to go  through, them all; I have given the  chief names that might be supposed to  compete with lord Rosebery in popular  regard and expectation, and it is evident to everybody that lord Rosebery  overtops them all in the interests he  excites.  And yet it is difficult to say why it  should not be otherwise. Lord Rosebery���with all the space he fills in the  public eye���is by nature and by habit  a good deal of a recluse. He is one of  the most omniverous of readers; and for  that reason is never really alone. And  thus it is that he probably has more of  solitude than any man of prominence in  the country. So habituated has be become to be in his solitary communing  with books, that he often rushes from  London to the country in order to be  alone there! and vice versa very often  he spends Sunday alone in London because that happens to be the day when  most of his own class are out of town,  and when, therefore, he can be certain  to remain undisturbed. One may go  further, and say that sometimes he finds  any part of his own country too populated for the taste with people who may  speak to him, occupy his time and  thoughts���in short, bore him. There is  scarcely a being more restless in Europe; or one who so flits from place to  place. He has a beautiful house in  Naples; he is today at the bath _at Barcelona; the next day one hears of him  in Vienna, or in Paris. He keeps up  several palatial houses���at Dalmeny in  Scotland, at Mentmore, in Bucks, at  the Durdans on Epsom Downs, at his  house in Berkeley Square. And it is  hard to tell when he Is to be found, in  one or the other. The one thing certain  is that he will never stop very long in  any of them.  These are not the arts of a man who  seeks popularity.   There is a certain advantage, it is true, in keeping aloof from  one's fellow men���it was one of the secrets of the awe which Parnell always  inspired���but, on the other hand, men  are apt to  be forgottn  in  public life  when they cease to be seen;   and lord  Rosebery, for many years, has ceased to  be  much   seen.    One   must,   therefore,  search elsewhere than in his own deliberate seeking- for the interest he excites in the public mind.    It is not all  his personality, it is quite true.   He is  a great nobleman���with castles, wealth,  long   descent���all   the   attributes   and  many of the ideas of the grand seigneur.  Head of a popular party, he nevertheless  has given up none of the manner and  customs of the great aristocrat.    If one  ^go^to-any^of-his-dwellingSrthere-are-alK  the outward marks and tokens of the  great noble; indeed, it is almost like a  plunge   into  the   eigheenth   century   to  visit   one   of  his   residences���witn  the  coronet everywhere, the retinue of retainers, the ample and varied equipages.  You may see him in the summer time  travelling from one great house in Buckinghamshire to another with postilions,  quite as if he lived in the days before  the railway; and, in short, he is grand  seigneur   to   tho   finger-tips.      Nobody  cares much for the aristocrat in Prance  ���except a bourgeois or a financier who  wants  to  marry one of his  daughters,  and get a title as a mask for his newly  and ' meanly  acquired   wealth.    But  in  England we still dearly love a lord, and  it would  be childish to deny that lord  Rosebery's hold on the popular imagination is due in part to the fact that he  is a great noble.    .  But that is  but a'small  part of his  attractiveness to.the public.   There are  plenty   of   great   nobles   in   the   land  wealthier   and 'more, magnificent   than  he is, and if they were to make a speech;  it would be dismissed in a paragraph,  i or, perhaps, not be noticed at all���unless  the language   was   particulary   rich   in  vituperation and expletive;  and nobody  can get into the newspapers by incon-  tingency of language.   The fact is, lord  Rosebery is a man of very remarkable  intellectual gifts.    I should put his oratory as  the greatest of these gifts.    I  have never heard Mr.  Chamberlain on  the platform, and therefore cannot say  how  he  impresses  people    there,    and  whether  he has  the  same  tremendous  power    over    a    popular    audience    as  he has over the audience of the house  of  commons.     Nor   have   I   heard   Mr.  Balfour  in   the same   way  speak  to  a  great meeting;  but I fancy he is rather  cut of place there, and I am told that  Mr. Asquith, who, in the house of commons,   is  a  true  orator,  who  at  once  thrills and holds the assembly, is somewhat  lugubrious  and   depressing  when  he gets to the larger arena of the platform.     The   one   man   in   parliament  whom I might pit against lord Rosebery  is Mr. John Morley, who there is quite  a   different   being  from   the   somewhat  hesitant speaker of the house of commons, for on the platform  he  becomes  forcible, telling, trub* eloquent, and effective.   But I would put lord Rosebery  even above him as a platform  orator.  m~Z*    ^m^m        ���_        ������_,        ���_���_,      m���,��� ��_u        ^p -���mm*     mk*w '���^^r-^^mtw      ���W'**^b>'  'm]fla>'    Ml** 0"^m�� SBvaaW^Mk  p0. 00 . 00. ^ . ^0. my . j0. 00 . ^. ^ . ^. ^ .^. ^ . ^0.^.0g0       ^ST.^T'^l  00.00 .00 .00.00.00  4$ts&- ��ts>- <sa_��'-*-^;  ft  to  DURING   THIS   WEEK  91  9\  9\  to  9\  Special Low Prices on all  Dress Goods, Silks, Underwear, Ready-to-Wear Suits,  Skirts, etc.  A few Silk Blouses at cut  prices.

He  has an even flow of elevated language,  he has plenty of wit, and has a very fine  and a very modulated voice.  Above all, he has that, great power  you see on the stage, in the pulpit, in  the court, and on the floor of parliament,  and yet can never tell whence it comes���  the power of impressing himself vividly,  strongly, enduringly on his audience.  Other orators you may hear and forget;  lord Rosebery always remains a vivid  memory; even if you have heard him  but once.  In addition to these qualities, lord  Rosebery has much insight, has a clear  mind, has read hugely, was brought up  in the school of high politics from youth,-  and, finally, he has great thoughts and  high ambitions. Perhaps his deep musings and high , ambitions are in some  respects a* defect and a drawback to his  ultimate success. It is significant to him  that his two favorite; studies are Pitt  and Napoleon. He has Pitt everwhere  around him, in statue, in memoir, one  of the rooms in Mentmore even bears  "the name of the Pitt room. And similarly lord Rosebery lives in constant  communion with the presence of Napoleon. In Berkeley Square there is the  picture of Napoleon on the Bellerophon,  which is historic; and no man has read  more memoirs of Napoleon than lord  Rosebery, as a published book of his  attests. A friend and'intimate of his  once told me that he never saw lord  Rosebery so absorbed as one night he  was looking at a representation" of Napoleon on the stage in the play of  "Madame Sans Gene." ;  ' Lord Rosebery, then, excites interest,  and curiosity���a curious feeling of expectation, half hopeful, half apprehensive because he is something of a seer.  Those ' grey--blue eyes���unfathomable,  watchful, yet aloof and abstracted���  strike the imaginations of.men as did  the rapt, face of Dante when he passed-  through the streets of Florence. Even  4he~passing-urchi_T_looking_on-thei=face-  of the great poet, could see with a shudder some of Dante's inner visions���the  vision of heaven and the many hells;  and all the great dreams of the poet.  And so it was when Jprd Rosebery  passes, there is, even- in the commonest  mind, the thought that there is also a  man with a inner great kingdom. of  hopes,, dreams, ambitions, visions' 'beyond those of the ordinary man. Jt.is  the soul behind the face that makes  its interest.  How will it all end? . That is on the  knees of the gods;  and lord Rosebery  knows as little as anybody else.. Either'  tho visionary will kill the man of action or the man of action will get. the  opportunity of realizing the dreams of  tho visionary.

CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID.  UNDOING OF CHIEF WET DOG  By Gilbert 0. Terry  During nine months of the year AVet Dog  could be found on the Apache reservation,  where he ate good cooked food, and drew  good gun ammunition, all of which our  government supplies to its pets, the  Apaches. The other three months would  llnd him, accompanied by a string of  speedy racing cayuses and a string of favorite squaws, making the rounds of various  fiestas, where he invariably happened by  hook or crook, principally by crook, to pull  off something in the way of racing money  or poker winnings.  Wet Dog, in brief, was a consummate  sport,- and it must be added a crooked sport  at that. This fact one regrets to divulge, for this noble red man had been  twice converted by missionaries, who wrote  homo joyfully that the bloody Apache chief  had confessed his sins and been gathered  into the fold. But truth must out, and Wet  Dog had certainly acted shamefully at the  Gold Gulch "rooster-pulling" the doping of  Limping Jim's cowponv racer.  As a "result, many dishonest dollars had  passed into the hands of Wet Dog," who,  with ponies and squaws, hastened to llee  before his trickery had been discovered.  There was naturally much lamentation and  profanity among the cowmen, who had  backed Limping Jim and his Paloiria with  their very last red; bitter were their reproaches ;as they struck their homeward  trails, and the desolate Jimmy, left alone  to doctor poor Paloma, felt the matter  keenly.  An autopsy  performed soon showed  exactly what had been wrong, and the Limping One swore to himself as a mlghtv cowboy oath,  "I'll fix that sneaking Injun, so  help me Moses, if it takes twenty years to  do it."  For many months    following    the    Gold  ..Gulch   episode,   AVet  Dog,   rich   in   his  ill-  gotten gains , and fattening on government  rations.lived peacefully, on the reservation.  Meanwhile  his  newly  bought; pony  Bluejay was being   carefully   trained   for   the  ;    AVolpi races at snake-dance time, and the  horse's owner practiced stealthily in his tepee various new   combinations   on    poker  .    hands, for the ultimate undoing of Lo, the  poor unsuspecting Indian,  to whom  card-  stacking was an unknown thing, but poker  a thing of everlasting joy.  At this time Limping Jimmy was laying  low and. formulating some' tricks of his  own, aided'and abetted by his bunkv, one  "Shorty" Smith..  ' -These tricks -necessitated the swearing-  off of two cowboys, so far as whiskey and  poker were concerned, and the saving of  their every cent. They also necessitated I  grieve to say. a midnight journey of thirty  miles to the Bar-X range; the rounding up  there of an outlaw and untamed pony, the  stealthy escorting by night of that same  wild, though promising pony, and his staking in a certain pastijre, already prepared  by the.two men, where the outlaw's busting was taken In charge.  On the Bar-X ranch there was some  hunting and chasing after the missing ponv  which ceased upon Shorty of the Circlo-S.  stating tn the Bar-X foreman that he had  the day before spied a bunch of Apaches  driving some ponies northward from the  BarX, and that, "By ructions, there was a  gray broncho, with one white leg, roped in  with them there Injun cayuses!"  Shorty's perjury saved the day. The Bar-  X foreman, vowing death and destruction  to all Apaches, retired blaspheming to his  ranch; meanwhile Limning Jimmy and:his  colleague continued to, labor with, and educate In secret that same gray outlawed  broncho with ono white leg.  Weeks of hard labor, for never was there  a wickeder broneh than Outlaw. As his  training progressed Shorty had an arm  broken and. Jimmy a leg; both were con-  stantl ya'mass of bruises and it Is a wonder that their necks were not broken; But  __the>r_never_gave in, and, as patience and  doggedriess will work^wonders^even^wlth  an outlawed broneh, the gray horse was-  finally subdued and broken to a finish. As*  the two trainers vowed to each other, there  wasn't a horse in the two territories able  to even keep in sight of his heels, much  less run with him.  ' And then Shorty disappeared on a brief  leave of absence; meanwhile Limping  Jimmy used.an old side saddle and flapninc  blanket in the further education of Outlaw,  who ' did not take in the least kindly to  this branch of his training. After a week's  absence Shorty reappeared, well laden with  divers bundles, and full of mysterious information over which him and his biinky  chuckled and rejoiced mightily.  It was a slack time, with little doing on  the ranch, so the two had little dlflleulty  in securing a fortnight's absence "to attend  to some business over In Arizona," they  Bald. So away they loped one morning, followed by'tho hoots and jeers of their loss  fortunate comrades, who had spent their  wages in riotous living, and no vacations  could come their way.  Now, while Limping Jimmy thus bade  " adieu to the Clrcle-S ln company with  Shorty Smith, It was with very different  company that he turned up a few days  later close to the Arizona border. The fes-  ' tlve Shorty was no longer visible, the cal-  vacado being made up of Jimmy himself,  on his own cowpony; a strange female who  rodo with the aerial grace and elegance ol  a feather bed; an ugly ewe-necked pinto  horse; while behind them trotted Shorty's  pony, laden with grub and many suspicious  looking jugs and bottles. It would have appeared that Limping Jimmy had discarded  en route his beloved bunky, taking instead  a wife unto himself���and a queerly behaved  Wife at that.  To be sure, her hair (or as much as could  be seen under her huge sunbonnet was particularly yellow and curly, while her fane  was fresh and not uncomely. Her hands  were big and rough, for western women are  hard working creatures, but her feet���these  appendages were simply enormous���were  covered by an extraordinary long riding  skirt.  As for Jimmy, that person looked passing unfamiliar in a glaring new suit of  store clothes, with boiled shirt and collar.  A bristling new red moustaches adorned  his upper lip, and almost any one would  have put him down as a prospector return-  from a trip for the disposal of his "stuff."  Tho trail was a monotonous one; it had  been an unusually dry season, and the bed  of the Gila river, when they came to cross  it, was ankle deep in dust. There was no  water fit for man to drink nnd merely n  hatful in a nearby hole, which even the  horses would not swallow. Yet this river  bank was the customary camping place for  people crossing between New Mexico and  Arizona, and here Limping Jimmy and his  companion dismounted, and prepared to  camp. They had it all to themselves, for,  snve an occasional darting lizard, the  wheeling of a bird against the hot, brassv  sky, and the yapping of prairies dogs from  their near-by burrows, there was no sign  of life.  Now, while these two camped expectantly  by the dry river bed, playing cards to pass  nway the time, steadily watching the trail,  there approached them from the Seven-  Jtlesa   direction,   a   small   cavalcade   of  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rata  three per cent.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch  Capita! (paid up)  Rest  $2,600,000  $1,850,000  Apaches. In front rode the chief���no less  a person than AVet Dog himself���while behind him straggled a motley crowd of  ponies, squaws and dogs, in the midst of  which was led a beautiful pony. Blue-jay,  the racer, and the apple of Wet Dog's eye.  It was with glee' that the Apache was  traveling southward, for Blue-jay had won  practically every run at the snake-dance;  and there had been congregated together  many Indians whom AVet Dog had lleeced  right and left at poker. The small gunny-  sack, which his squaw carried under her  blanket, was full of AVolpi wealth, there  being $300 silver therein, not to mention the  other, riches in the shape of cut turquoises  and coral and silver beads.  Fearful as to his treasures, it had been  AVet Dog's intention to cross the Gila a  mile higher up than the regular ford;  campers at the latter place might be cowboys, therefore dangerous. (For the Apache  dreads a cowboy even as an ordinary tenderfoot dreads an Apache.) But the squaw,  who had sneaked ahead to ascertain the  lay of the land, reported that there were  no vaqueros, only a white man camped  there with his wife; the man drank firewater and played cards, while three ponies  were hobbled near-by. The ponies were well  laden with jugs, doubtless containing firewater.  AVet Dog hesitated���and was lost! His  wiser instincts urged him to hurry on with  his money, turquoises and racer; his thirst  for firewater and his gambling instincts  told him to stop and fleece the white man,  who, if carefully enough plied with firewater, would be easy game. For had not  he, the Apache, lleeced white men before  this? The gambler ruled and Wet Dog, with  his following, made for the camp of the  white coiu^le.  Here, after one glance satisfying the Indian that he had never seen the white man  before, who was probably a miner, AAret Dog  ordered his squaws to hobble the ponies.  Meanwhile, he and the stranger, having  partaken of several drinks, proceeded to  deal for poker in spite of "the protests of  tho white woman, who declared in hoarse  tones that "Jack was a natural bawn fool  to play pokah���he didn't know nawthin'  about cards."  At the time this statement was made,  AAret Dog greatly rejoiced; two hours later  he had reason to believe it was what the  white man called a bluff. For, while the  Indian was good at fixing the cards, and  could glibly deal out four kings to his opponent, thoughtfully retaining four aces  for his personal use, he seemed somehow  unable to buck up against this apparently  tipsy miner. Apache luck seemed decidedly  on the wane. He lost one hand after the  other, until finally, the American had beside him all of Wet Dog's portable property. The chief had lost his loose money;  then his good government rifle (drawn  from the United States ration department),  and then his Colts army and navy revolver;  next the silver watch, bearing the legend,  "To my dear Christian brother," which  had been sent him by a friend of the last  missionary who had converted him. A final  jack-pot swept away Blue-jay's saddle and  bridle, and then AVet Dog laid down his  cards, glaring wickedly at tlie seemingly  : tipsy white man, and at the sunbonnetteu  white squaw so unconcernedly tightening  the cinches of her saddle. If Wet Dog could  havo got at his ride or revolver he would  have shot down AVhite man and squaw  where they stood. But as it stood, he could  only grit his teeth in impotent fury, anu  mutter that he would play no more white  man's games. No, he had had enough.  Laugning teasingiy, the miner stood up,  carelessly picking up the lirearms: "Wen,  yes, It is too Uaa to win everything a man  has. Still I am good with the carus. Now,  if it Avas hawses it might be different."  At this an idea occurred to Wet Dog,  who was sullenly making toward his pony;  he gave a comprehensive furtive glance at  the white mans horses.'.Neither of them,  he judged, could run a half mile with Bluejay. The pinto , pony, with its ewe-neck  and woman's saddle, he did not ueign to  glance at twice. ���"What woman," he mused,  ������ever rode anything but a cow?" Here was  his chance.  ������No, no," said he, seeing that the American was saddling up. "Ave will have pony  racing; Apache pony, your horse. \'es, yes!  Apache horse no sabe run fast, your pony  _��ood_ runner. ^Saj^^we^have jlrink. you give  Apache chief firewater. "We talk."  The   American   protested.   "No,   no.   My  HEAD OFFICE.

LAY, Manager,  a wild stampede for the banks of the Gila,  emitting wild yells of terror at e\*ery jump.  Wet Dog fairly groaned aloud as he caught  a glimpse of their fleeing backs.  Of course, he could only throw up his  hands. AVhat else could one do when confronted with a levelled, cocked revolver?  And very soon AVet Dog found himself dismounted and dispossessed of his beloved  pony, handcuffed, and tied stoutly to a Cottonwood tree. Thence he could only' glare  impotently at the actions of Limping Jimmy, who leisurely placed his own saddle on  the pony Bluejay, and arranged leading  ropes on the other ponies, meanwhile keeping up a running monologue on the doping  of ponies, with many pointed allusions to  Apache habits in general, the characters of  Apache chiefs and their female relatives,  and many other things too numerous and  profane for me to even hint at. Then, with  a patronizing wave of the hand, off loped  Jimmy. D  "Injun must excuse my hurried departure," he stated, sweetly, "for my partner  ahead there, Mr. Shorty Smith, ain't no  hand at countin' and he might slip up on  them turquoises. Besides Mr. Smith has  been riding side-saddle fashion for some  days, and is probably played out. So, adios,  chief. Going down to Gold Gulch any time  soon? AVill see you there later, then."  In this manner did Limping Jimmy  square himself with Wet Dog. And late  that same night unpursued, and safe over  the Arizona border, two hysterical cow-  bows undisguised themselves, and a very  nervous pinto 'horse with one white leg,  which had been painted pinto and otherwise "fixed" with a very unflattering ewe  neck. This same horse later won several  thousand dollars' worth of races, with a  close second in a fleet Indian pony named  Bluejay.  Of this Wet Dog never knew, for he died  shortly after his adventure with Limping  Jimmy. The reservation agent wrote down  his death ns due to heart failure, but the  squaws whispered otherwise. "It was  whiteman's medicine," they murmured, for  had they not themselves seen the white  squaw's hair come off her head and fly  through the air, and had Lilymaid's bullets -one through her body, and never  killed? Natural-causes, indeed! They had  seen, and they well knew. Of a verity was  the white man's medicine powerful.  m  to  9\  to  to  to  to  r^9^999^'-i099^^^^^^'-^^^.^^-^^.^^^.^^^.^.^.9r.9r.9:.^>:  W. ; ; ! ��� ' 1 'jitjv  to  9\  to  9}  189Q-BSTABLISH-1D IN NHH,SON-1002  REDUCTION  OP 10   PER  CENT  to  to  AVI  ft  ft  m Before stock taking this month a  ft  ft  ft  * will be given on every dollar,  ft But come early and you shall have our prompt attention.

Wet Dog plied more whiskey and more  guttural eloquence.  "Well," the American said, "you're a real  sporty sort, and it is a blanked shame for  you to do all the losin'. Say, believe (hie)  we will run just one little race. But theli  must be some betting, just to show theh  ain't any frost, see? What (hie) will you  put up?"  In nis gle of having got the white man  drunk anu in his certainty of a dead easy  thing, Wet Dog boasted tnat he would bet  everything lie nad���ins racer, J-lue-jay, the  bag of snvcr and turquoises, everything,  in fact, against the Americans llireu  horses and the Delongings which no luiu  just won from him in puKt-r.  The American agreeu, and all preliminaries* were quickly aranged; the race to be  ridden by the two men on their own ponies;  Uistuneo one mile to a clump of cotton-  woods on tlie plain ahead; the start to be  given, by Lilymaid, who was shown how to  lire a revolver, which the American himself loaded for her. With the white woman  obligingly holding the slakes���iu whicli  Wet Dog saw no risks, inasmuch as Lilymaid held both revolver and rille���the two  men got their ponies into line, the lesser  squaws, dogs und ponies stolidly looking  on from the background. Then all was still;  meanwhile Lilymaid nervously extended  the heavy colt, pulled back the hammer,  and gave a trembling jerk to the trigger.  Click, bang! arid three'horses leaped tor-  Avard in a blinding cloud of dust. Tense silence reigned for a moment, then there uprose loud wails from the squaws, and a second pistol report, which disconcerted Wet  Dog, crouching low on Blue-jay's neck, he  toro along for dear life. Until the pony  was Avell settled, he dare not look. AVhen  ho did so, however, judge of tho vision  that met his dumbfounded eyes.  Disappearing in dust, nearly half a mile,  ahead, was the ewe-necked pinto pony, going like a streak of lightning, while the  woman oh his back, her sunbonnet vanished, and the wig of curls dangling from  a closely cropped masculine cranium, made  wild and derisive motions. Steadying the  pinto with ono hand she waved the  Apache's precious bag of dollars and turquoises, meanwhile giving voice to the  most startling and blood-curdling cow-boy  yells.  Never had AVet Dog seen or heard anything like it; he stood aghast, his knees  trembling and his eyes popping out of his  head. Of a truth must he be crazy, of bewitched. But as he stared the yellow wig-  slipped from its last hair-pin, and soared  rejoicingly through the air. The vanishing red head of Shorty Smith was therefore bared to the public, and AVet Dog  swore again, and yet again, as he realized  how he had been duped by his cowboy enemies. The other of them he could see, was  riding close behind and���oh, horrors!���held  a cocked 3S Colts pointed straight at him!  But the chief, who had not even a knife on  his body, gave forth one warning shout to  Lilymaid. The squaws, however, having  viewed tho yellow scalp locks of the fleeing  Under Hard Masters  Bennet   Burleigh,   the   war   correspondent, writing to the- London Daily  Telegraph says:    Every trooper in the  British   army   remembers   the   riding  master and our hard riding school, and  the Imperial Yeomanry and mounted infantry know  them,  to their cost and  loss.    The five shillings a day of pay,  given to colonial  mounted troops, attracts many curious creatures, careless,  because ignorant of what is required of  those   who   seek   preferment   upon   a  horse's back, unknowing sublime equitation.    It is better than a flrst class  circus to see the   new  sections   being  drilled.   Regular as the clock, the camp,  or as much of it as is allowed to, turns  out to roll and rock till their sides and  heads ache at the fun of the thing.   Fun  to them, but soreness that is the bitterness of despair and deep-seated loss to  the recruits.   A hard, stern riding-master   or   regimental   surgeon-major _is  worse than a fiery  dragon,  and more  terrible   than   death,    to   the   terror-  stricken beginner.    I have been out to  see the recruits   drilled   for   a  certain  well-known colonial troop.   It ceases to  be a marvel that, after such discipline  "and"experiencesr"cavalry"-and"mountedii  troops should be hardy, brave and with  a   smiling   countenance  for   pain   and  wounds.    Here is a faithful rescript of  Avhat I saAv and truly heard upon the  veldt riding school this week, where a  score of unpromising material for troops  were being trained.    And the inspector  was not peculiarly hasty, wordy, or ill-  tempered, as "riding-masters military"  go in these parts.   He wore ins row of  ribbons   with   soldierly   dignity,    and  slowly and carefully told the- recruits  a good deal they   never   knew   before  about a horse, how to saddle it, and how  to mount.   And he .chafed them not by  bare-backed exercise.   He showed them  how  to jump  into a saddle,with and  .without the help of a stirrup..  The score Avere mounted and the stirrup-irons were placed out of the way,  crosswise over the saddle. How irresponsible their feet dangled, as those of  loose-jointed dollies. "Walk, march,"  then "Tr-r-r-ot!" roared the sergeant,  and whilst several groped and grabbed  at their saddles, behind and before, like  Gaspard the miser, at his gold pieces,  two came incontinently to mother earth.  "Who told you to get off?" shouted the  sergeant, and the victims turned meek,  swimming eyes upon him,- feeling the  satire as added insult, to injury. He  then let the section dismount and rest  awhile. Then he said: "Mount without  stirrups." The struggles of the recruits were various and ludicrous to get  aboard. Only the more limber-jointed  got their elbows over and upon the  horse's back. "I have been Avounded  about fifteen thousand times, yet I can  get up quicker than any of you," cried  the sergeant. To a man who could not  spring six inches from the ground he  wailed, "Oh, if I had a rifle you'd jump  high enough." "You ought to join a  corps that Avears carrots for spurs, and  three men to a donkey." A late-comer,  who hurried to put on his spurs, possibly his first attempt, was addressed  with, "They are put on Avrong, of course.  Why don't you put them round your  head? No wonder this war still goes on.  Go home to your mother." They were  trotting again. "What do yon clutch  hold of the saddle for? Pall off, if you  like, but don't do that here." "Here,  you! don't catch your horses mane and  pull her head back; you'll pull his head  off his shoulders."  "When you ride in single file I want  the crupper of the horse in front, and  by crupper I don't mean the next horse's  head nor the end of his tail, but his  hind part.   Right about is not left about.  Ste-e-e-dy!    Don't laugh, man, or gig-  le;  you'll give the horse the pips, or  frighten him into a fit of the staggers.  Ah!    dont_look at the ground; the paymaster is not here.    The last time he  was he lost his money, but that's been  found.   You'll find none on this course,  my man.   I don't suppose you ever rode  in a cab, but you may have been _in a  ricksha, from the way you loll in the  saddle.    Sit up!    Now you are jaunty,  but anybody could ride a horse going at  a walk;  yet it will take you just ten  years to learn that much.   And to think  this corps and others have advertised  in the newspapers   for   recruits,   'only  good shots and good riders taken on  the strength of the regiment,  pay 5s  a day.'   Arid you lot have had the face  to take the job on.   If my seat had been  half as hard as your cheek I'll never  feel tired or sore on service.   Now then,  young fellow,  never mind your  horse  coughing;   a cough shouldn't pull you  off like that.   Really some of you are  too fine.   You ought to be put in glass  cases.   And I've heard some of you bold  fellows say that the British cavalry was  no good.   Goodness, gracious!    There's  a heap of difference between their Is a  day and your 5s a day.   Why, of course,  you ought to be just five times as good.  "Now you are going to let the reins  lie lose on- the horse's  neck and not  touch them.    I warn you that if you  make a mistake   here   you   are   liable  to drop dead.    Don't look at me, arid  don't answer or argue.   You are in the  army now, and the only persons allowed  to -think in   the   army   are  generals���  nothing less.   But keep your ears open.  And you   call   that   riding?    Oh!   oh!  Here's more arms and more horses for  the  . Boers.     T-r-r-r-rot.     You're   all  .sleep.    My!   my!    poor   horses,;   how  those fellows bump and roll about upon  them.    You'll  be arrested for  cruelty  to animals if there was a member of the  society within a thousand miles of you.  Now,  brace up!   be soldiers and  earn  your five shillings a day.    Why don't  you hold on to the saddle with both  hands;   one   is   not   enough   for   you.  R-R-R let go!   I want you to guide the  horse, and not   the   horse   guide   you  about.    You won't get your discharge  mind, even if you can't ride.   We first  reduce your pay.   That's the new order  from Pretoria.   Money, or the want of  it, has been the ruin of your boys.   Yes,  that's it; dig your spurs well into him,  and get a good hold on the flesh of his  flanks, then you can't tumble off.   Turn  your toes in.   You are the warmest lot  ever paraded.   You may be missed, but  none of you will ever be wanted.   That  -will-do;���dismiss,_and_-write_home_ands  tell   them   you  are   clashing  troopers,  careering with fiery, untamed steeds."  So, in this old-fashioned style of chaff,  roar and banter, the sergeant seeks to  make horsemen in a three-weeks'  course. The system has its advantages  as well as drawbacks, for it warns the  soldier-novice that his first duty is to  endure great physical and mental strain  without murmur, and yet keep his ears  open and his brain working. A spell  of such rigorous training makes even  the indifferent callous to fatigue or  death, surely!  >  /  t/rfrUxi- ��� F^^/olibe/  CLASSIFIED ADS.
