IV I oil My luuibaud (writes a lady) Is three times the lan since using ‘'Wclhi’ llcalUi lioncwer,” MI8S JOE’S EXPERIMENT. A Thanks^^iring Nfcy. BY ROBE TERRY COOKE. “Say, Clorintla! Mis’ Ilougli’s dead.” “The mercy’s sakos 1 you don’t say 80,” answered a thin, shrill voice from the chintz-covered rocker which held Miss Clorinda Mills’ lean figure and faded chalky face. Miss Joe put her arms akimbo, and looked at her with her habitual expression of endurance. She w'as thin, too, but muscular, eti*oiig, energetic. “Clear grit,” the nciglibors said, but she had all her life been oppressed and depressed by this weakly, ailing, whining impractical sister. Clorinda had all the con^ilaints any mortal frame can entertain—according to her own showing. “Clorinda is greatly afflicted ?” murmured fat, kindly Mrs. Potter, the new minister’s wife, when on her tenth call on the “Mills girls,” as Siafioi d people called them. “I.ord, yes!” snapped Joe. “She’s had everything on the face of the created alrth, save an’ except smallpox and coiisutnption. Them is to come.” With a tiny house and garden of their own, the interest of $2,000, aiuí Miss .Foe’s tailoring, the two women «joiitrivcd to live, with no Inxuncs but Cloriiula’s patent inediciiie.s, and no aniuseinents but Mcthodisi meet ings and a ••po.sy-bed.” Mrs. Hough, a well-to-do fanner’s wiic, who lived near by, had been one of their most laithfnl and considerate friends. She not only .sent them potatoes, ai»i>les and choke jiears, in their season—with now and then a jng of hntfermilk or half u dozen eggs—but every Thanksgiving she gave them u plnm]» cldi’ken for tlieir ¡ ceremonial pie, half a sqnasli for ]»ies, and a quart of cranberries from the swamp on the upper farm. It was a real calamity to them when a seven* attack ot typhoid fever took her out of her ground-floor bedimmi—musty for Avant of sunshine—to Hie dry and Biinnr yri’íiví>j'íii-d, ft»y willi d-iisiioK, asters, golden iirI and the heaven-blue gentian. “Well, I do say it,” rejoined Miss Joe, “she’s ben and had the typhoid | bad. And she Avan't real strong. Land! avc shall miss her awflly.” “She ought to hev took HaAvle’sKed Receipt right along ; 1 told her so. 1 told her she’d onghter doctor forthem faint spells,” moaned Clorinda, rocking harder than ever. “1 don’t know about that, Clorinda. Sometimes 1 think them things haven’t done yon no great siglit o’ good, and you’ve took about all the’ was to take, certain.” “Why, Josephy Mills! Yon do’ knoAV hoAV bad I should ha’ ben ef I hadn’t taken ’em. Like enough I should ha’ been lyin’ in my gruA'e this ten year ef I hadn’t ha’ doctored.” “Well, that’s so: mabbc yc would.” Miss Joe Avorked for and Avaited on Clorinda continually, but she fled into the shed and clattered the pots wlieneA’er her sister began to moan about her poor Aveak back, her iceble digestion, the “neurology” in her knee, or the “sciatiky” in her liip. Just noAV, hoAvever, they Avcrc both absorbed in Mrs. Hough’s death. “We shall feel it dreadful, come Thanksgiving,” sighed Clorinda, whose infirm digestiA^e organs never quailed before a good dinner. “Well, I hadn’t thought on’i in that p’int of vicAV exactly,” said Miss Joe, cheerily. “1 don’t knoAV but what ’twould seem kind of folksy to hev our OAvn vittlcs for once Tha'nksgiviu’ Day. Seems as though I’d just as lievcs be thankful to the Lord as to the neighbors once in awhile.” “Why, hoAv you talk I I never heerd of tho I.ord’s sendin’ chicken an’ squash an’ cranberries to folks; ’taint really wliat you could call inanny, nor there ain’t no scch miracles as manny and quails in these days. “Well, tho Loi-d helps them that helps themselves, Clorinda, and I do hanker to be a mile more independent than Ave bo, a good many times. I’ve ^ot an idee, and I’m a going to fuller it un. I saved them last squash sceds’t Mis Hough sent ns, and I’m going to dig up a corner i i the garden an’ hev a liill o’ squishes. I can get road-scrapin’s enough to inanui*e 'cm, and tliev do say dish-Avatei^s fust best to make things groAV ; and I can ncg ’em along in front of the current bushes, so’st they Avon’t SAvanip the bcets’n things in tho beds. I b’lievo 1 can do’t as Avell as not.” “Well, s’uosin’ yc can? Squashes ain’t chicken, nor craube’ries, nuthcr.” “I hain’t got to the end of the idee yet; yon Avait a niinit. I dono but Avhat spiced eurrunts Avill be jest as good Avith chicken jile as cranb’ry sass, and we’ve got plenty to stcAV up an’ sílice.” “’Taint no ways the same things,” said Clorinda, plaintively. “Well, it’s another thing, and that's just as g()0<i, lucbbe better, for a change. And coneernln’ a chicken, Avhv, we can buy one o’ them Ilrainy of Mis’ Emerson cheap while it’s real little. 1 shouldn’t Avondcr of slie’d sell it for ninepencc.” “I don’t recly sec, Joe, Avhy 'twon’t be jest as hard for yon to raise one Brainy chicken as Tis for Mis’ Emerson to raise liull broods. t:ccms as though ye Avas a countin’ of ’em some in advance.” “Well, Ave can’t always tell. I can cosset one, Avhcre I couldn’t twenty. I can get it anyway. Ninepencc AVon’t make or break us as I know of, and if I do my everlasting best to make it live an’ it don’t, Avhy there ’tis; it’s a dispensaticm. But I guess it’ll live.” So Miss Joe proceeded to the Avood shell, Avhere, Avith the staves of an old barrel, a broken hoop skirt, nails and a hauimer, she jnoceeded to construct the most astonishing hen coop possible. In one corner an old scullitz poAvder box. relic of Miss Clorinda’s “bad sfMills,” Avas fastened to the side as a drinking trough, and when the coop Avas securely staked down, ©lose to the b.Tck door, a nest of hay Avas made in one corner, and a substantial perch fastened firmly across tho Avhole liab-Itation. Mrs. Emerson proved propitious, and a Avhitc Brunina chicken was installed in this mansion about the 1st of May with all due honors. It really put new life into this small house to have an object of such daily interest and care. Tho chieken was named at once for the sake of some "handle to ’t,’‘ as Miss Joe said, and it very soon learned to knoAv that “Peter” meant a summons to its meals. “It’s the knoAvin’est crctur,” exclaimed smiling Miss Clorinda, Avho really sometimes forgot her aches in the antics of her pet. Every night Peter Avas taken into the kitchen for fear of rats or Aveasels, till at last it was big enongii to leav'e the coop and pei’ch on a beam in tb«> wooU-Louao . at night. And never’ a chicken grcAV so fat. It would jiatter in at every meal, to be fed outof the sisters’ hands, and Avonld fiit up into Miss Clorinda's own lockor, and go to sleep on the cushion after tea, Avitli her lull consent and ajiprobation. .Meantime tho squashes pros[>ercd. "(iuess you’ll have pies eiiougii,” ’anghed (,'lm-inda, Avhose interest in be thankful on squash pie and 6|)iccd currants andpish cakes; but I couldn’t be thankful eatin’ Peter, not if I had a Fourth o’ July cold collection along with him.” “No, nor I nuthcr, Joe; bless the crecter! I couldn’t stan’ it without him, and I think fish-cakes are the best of vittlcs!” The sisters slept the sleep of contentment, and got up in the morning with a SAVCCt consciousness of iiu-pentFing evil fore„ver removed. But where Avas Peter? He did not conic to breakfast. He was not to be found anywhere. For an hour they hunted nnxionsly, Avlien just as Clorinda Avas |)eering under her hand into the dark corner of the woodshed, Avhcrc Joe had elimbeil over the pile to inspect certain old boxes and barrels, Peter flew right out into the inspecting Josopha’s face Avith a loud and exulting, “Cut-cnt-cut-cut-cut-a-dacnt!” and the astounded and confounded Avonian screamed out— “Clorinda Mills! for the land’s sake! As sure as you’i-e born, Peter's laid an egg!” This settled the matter. Tlie sisters had never kept chickens in their lives before, and had taken it for granted that Mrs. Emerson would not sell them a hen, and iniieed it was an oversight on the iiart of the good Avoman hcr.self. But this unexpected development consoled Clorinda and Joe for the Aveakiiess they had shoA\ u about killing their pet, eA^en for the solemn feast of Thanksgiving Day. To kill a Avbite Brahma pullet Avoiiíd have been the slaughter of the goose ivi^ll^oldcn eggs over again, feo Joseplilt n    ¿-iWt~4ii I    01..A baking of her i)ies Avith joyful alacrity, and Clorinda had just laid Hie co.llibh on tlie tabic to llakc and soak it for Hie dinner to-morrow, Avhen the door opened, and Mr. Hough, stumping in, laid doAvn on the nearest chair a iilump yonng chicken, a bag of eranberrii;s and a big rod cabbage. “I knowed ye bad sijuashes’nongii,’’' he said, looking out of the AvindoAv tlie cbicken and garden had kept her J    at    the    luimp    handle,    as    if    no in the open air more tlnin slie liad ever been in her life before. "Well, if they ripen up good, I can sell ’em all to the tavern. Miss Em-ci*son she’s agoin' to have them railroad folks, engineers, yon know, to lioaivl Hiis winter, and she’s bespoke all I can let her liev; and, Clorinda, there ain’t one among all her Bramys that can hold a candle to Peter. I hefted the biggest on ’em last Aveek, and they wa’n’t no ways to be compared Avitb liim.”    y “Do tell! Well, Avc’vc cosseted liiniup so! Ile’seet and cot all iie could swallcr and itAvould be strange if he didn't grow sonic. I don’t see Avhy he don't hev no comb nor spurs. 1 thought they ahvays had ’em.” “I.and! ho ain’t nothing but a elilck.” IIoAveA'er, cA'cn wlien snnimer jiassed b)', and cool, SAveet autumn days set in, Avheii the big squashes lay like golden spheres on the grass and along by the currant bushes, J’etcr made no shoAV of his jtroper crest, and knightly appendages. He Avas fat. laz\', liapjiy; would nestle in Miss Clorinda's lap like a pet eat and foIloAV Miss .Foe.all over the house, Avith an attachment so evident the old lady more than returned it. But at last November came. The Governor’s prueluination Avas read from the pulpit; four squashes were Nloivd on tlie npitor ))antry shelf; thirty hail been driven off'in Mr. Emerson’s Avagon to delight the souls of hungry railroad workers Avith abundant pies through the coming Avnnter, and in Miss Joe^s jiurse $ti—tlie result of her horticultural labors—lay comfortably stored for some time ot^ieed. Montlay came; the Thanksgiving squash Avas stcAved and strained. Tuesday came; the spiced currants AV'cre fetched from the cellar and examined. They Avere not fermented at all. At tea time Peter camo coaxing and iiattering about for Ids supper, his eyes bright, and the late appearing comb fresh and red. Ho Avas Avliitc and plump, and held his head on one side and iK*ered at them Avitli a look of tlcinure fun. Miss Joe looked at her sister, and Miss Clorinda looked the other way. A chicken ought, by all laAvs of cookery, to bo killed and dressed more than two or three days bclore it is cooked: but Stafford custom was coii-tcnted to slaughter its animal food over night. If Peter was to be parboiled next day, and set aAvay to cool before encrusting and baking, he must be killed and picked to-nigbt. Both sisters knew it. They had thought about it and dreaded it silently for a Aveek. This Avas the last minute for action. Miss Joe looked at Peter nestling against Clorinda’s goAvn and looking up, expectant for a crumb. “I can’t do it,” said Miss .Toe, loudly and promptly. “I can’t and I Avon’t. Ef yon Avant chicken pie for Thanks-givin’, Clorinda, you can slarter tlie crctnr yourself. So there!” . Miss Clorinda burst into tears. “Josephy, I’d a’most as lievcs kill’ud cat you f I don’t care a cent for no pic, but I set by Peter like my eyes, ana I couldn’t no more eat him than 1 could yon, as I said afore.” Miss Joe laughed, buj tho laugh quaA’ered. “Guesg 1 should be a’niost too tough for you to oat, Clorinda; but you’ve sot my mind to rest. I’ve been a-thinkiii’ and a-frettlu’ in-’ardly quite a spell about this matter. I hated to give up your Thanksííivin’ dreadful; but I couldn’t noAvay sec ni) Avay to kill Peter. We’il ha\^e to I body Avas in the kitchen, "and—and— weli, siie allors looked out fur ye Tliank.«givin’,an’ 1 allers calc'lato to.” Then ne stumbled out of the door, draAving (he back of liis hand across his eyes.

Cor. IJiillsb Colonist.] In tho immediate vicinity of No. 4 tunnel, situated some tAVcnty miles above this village, ai*e bluffs of imk Avhich have jiitherto been unsnr-monntable, but on Monday morning last were fiticcessfully scaled by Mr. Ondenionk’s employes on Hie regular train from Lytton, assisted by Mr, Costerton, the British Columbia Express Company’s messenger, and a number of gentlemen from Lytton and points east of Hiat place, wlio, after considerable trouble and perilous climbing, succeeded in ca[>turing a creature Avhieh may truly be called half man and half b<*ast. “Jacko,” as the creature lia.s been called by its captnrers, is something of the gorrilla tv|)e, standing about four feet seven inches in height, and Avcighing 127 [Aounds. He has long, black, strong hair, and resembles a human l>eing, Avith one exe^eption, his entire body, excepting his hands (or paAvs) and feet are covered Avitli arlossy hair about one inch long. His forearm is much longer than a man’s forearm, and he l)osscsses extraordinary strength, as lie Avill take hold of a stick and break it by Avrenching or tAvieting it, Avhieh no man iiviiigeouUl break In tho same Avay. feim c his capture he is very reticent, only occasionally uttering a iKjise Avhich is half hark and half ijrowl. He is, hoAvever, becoining dailr mni-p atlflulu>xl-Ca    JVfi. (fcorgc ’J’ilbiirA', of this place, Avho proposes shortly starting for London, England, to exhibit him. His favorite food solar is berries, and he drinks fresh milk Avilh evident relish. By advice of Dr. Hannington raAV meats have been Avithheld .from .lacko, as the Doctor thinks it Avould have a tcnd«*ncy to make him savage. ’I’lie mode of capture avhs as follows; Ned Aiislin, the engineer, on coming in sight of the blutf at the eastern end of the No. 4 tunnel saAV Avhat he snjiposed to bo a man lying asleep in close firoximity to the irack, and as «[uick as Hiought bloAv the signal to a[)ply the brakes. The brakes Avere iiislantly applied, and in a few seconds the train Avas bi*ongl»M« » stamt still. At this inomoiit the snpiMAscd man sprang u]), and uttering a sharp, quick bark, began to climb the steep bluff. Conductor R. J. Craig and Express Messenger Costerton, followed by • baggagemen and brakeinen, jumped froth the train, and knowing they Avere some twenty niiiinl4*s ahead of time, immediately gav«* olíase. After five minutes of |M*rilofH climbing, the then supposed demented Indian Avaseorraled on a projecting shelf of rock, Avhere he could neither a»<*end nor tlesceml. The query iioav was how lO caiitnre him alive, Avhich Avas quickly de« id<Ml by Mr. (h’aig, who craAvled on his hands and knees until he Avas about forty feet above the creature. Taking a small piece of hmse r<M*k he let it fall, and it had the desired effect of rendering ])oor Jaeko inca|>ai)Ie of resistance for a time at least. The bell-rope Avas then brought up, and Jaeko avhs noAV lowered 1»» terra firma. After tirmly binding him and ])laeing him in the baggage ear “off brakes” Avas sounded, ami the train starte<l for Yale. At the station a large «'mwil who had heard of theeaptni'e l>y tele-idioiH! from feinizzmn I'’lat were assembled, each one anxious to have Hie first look at the monsirosily, but Hn*y weredisw[»poinled, as .F tcko had been taken off at the maebim* sh«)ps and [d.aced in charge of his present keeper. The question naturally arises, hoAV came the emitnre Avhere it Avas first seen by Mr. Austin ? From bruises about its head and body, and Hp()ar-enl soraiics since its capture, it is sup-|)Osed that Jaeko ventured loo near the edge of the bluff, sliiqwd, fell and lay Avherc found until the sound of the rusliing train aroused him. Mr. Thomas White and Mr. Gcmin, C. K., as Arcll as Mr. Major, who kept a small store about lialf a mile Avest of the tunnel during the past tAvo years, have mentioned liavingsecna curious creature nt different jKiinIs between Camps IJ and 17, but no attention avus paid to Hieir remarks, as |>eople came to the conelnsion that tliey hud either seen a bear or a stray Indian dog. Who can nnraval the mystery that snrroiinds Ja«;ko? Does he belong to a species liitberto unknown in this part of the continent, or is be really Aviiat the trainmen first thought he avus, a crazy Indian? TAPPING A VOLGANO. Wondrrfiil llesiilta that PolloAveil Well-DigtcifiK In Tfzas. [CiiH-o cor. Dnlhr Hcralil.] The citizens of our quiet little city arc all throAvn into a groat state of wonderment, and tho <|ueslion in every one’s nmiith is “What is it ?” To give a projier descripHon to the readers of the Herald your L'on*o-spoiulcnt is not able, an ^ as for technical terms a more scientific pen than mine Avill have to take up Hie Avork to gratify a Bcicntilic Avorld and give tho causes Avhlch lead to this Avoiuler-fnl vomit from the mother earth. It will huA’c to sulfiee for me, therefore, to give ail ueeuiint of that which has led to Uic discovery of this wonder ful furnace that is noAv throAving out from the Imwels of the earth far into tho heavens red balls of lire. Almut tAvo inonths ago our enterprising townsman, A. (i. Eppliii, undertook to boi-e for water in the rear of his place of business. Ho bored doAvn a four inch liole some sixty feet, and finding good indications ot Avater, he concluded he Avoiild sink a well of TOgulaiion size. He accordingly engaged men and set them at Avork, and tohi them to in*08ecutc the Avork (loAvuAvard until they found plenty of Avater, even should they have to invade the kingdom of China. Accordingly, each day found the men at work, without any interruption until last Thursday, Avlien tho late rains interfered with them. This morning the work Avas again resumed. As the Avork pi-ogrcssed nothing of a very peculiar nature was observed in tlie ditfercril stratas of clay, sand and rock that Avere passed through. At a depth of about five feet the Avorkinen struck strata of limestone Avhich, by blasting, they got through in thirty-six feet. At this depth (forty feet) they struck a rather curious formation, which takes of the nature of a concrete, or rather a conglomeration of pebbles shells and claj’, cemented together by some internal furnace. This was got through after blasting some twenty feet. The next formation reached, and the one in which tho men Avere Avorking at the time of the bursiing of the crater, is a kind of soajistoiHj of a beautiful pink color.
