In.lGOO, the jeurVif tin truce, the bank
of Amaterdiim wa founded, and before
the end of the witury u known to have
metallie depoi.'t? wtth it to the amount of
flWJ,03(Jt,O0OA ficiipu're more prodigious

thought cuiild be pukai'jly accumulakd.
tuc notv8 iKued by the baDk were sup-
poaed to be, nnd in theory were, exactly
equal in amount to the specie or metallic
money drpotdtcd in the strong-room of the
liank. Hut the notes of the bank always
bore a pre miuin, due to the couvmience
trlul the Absolutely guurdod security which '
the holder of the note posesied. Then
the bank charged a small sum on every aC'
count which was openttil with it, a timll
sum for neentintiní bills and . tranpfcrrin
balances, beaidea a profit which they de
rived from (heir own subscribed capital
and their i-tidtomprs' money at call.'
The bank was under the mpnai.ment of
the Amsterdam corporation, the cbiela of
which examined the treasure annuallv,
undhiadebnlh that it was of the full
amount ut which the mnnagprs of the
li;u,k affirmed it to be. It was seen that
the well being of. this great commercial
center was so much the interest of the Am
sterdam municipitliiy that they could be
more safely trusted with the. control of the
institution than any state official could be.
I When nearly a" century afterward the pro
ject of starting a great ceLtral bank in
'England was entertained it was thought
for long lime that the system under
which the bunk of Amsterdam was man
aged should lie the model of a bank to be
estnblUhed in Loudon. In the end, and
fortunately so, other counsels prevailed,
for in the seventeenth century Loudon bad
not been so completely educated in the
principles of commercial honor as to make
the Amsterdam experiment a safe or con
venient mode fcr Ktigliah practice. It is
remarkable that not a few of the first di
rectors of the bunk of England were Flem
ish settlers in London, who, driven out for
their religion, brought over with them tho
intelligence, mgtcity aud integrity ol
The reputation -of the bank. of Amster
dam received a remarkable confirmation
n 1G72. In this year Louis XIV, having
lecurcd by heavy brib tho cppiphcity
and assiatauce of- Charles II of England,
declar-d sudden war, on the Dutch. . It
was perhaps the. most . in Aimous war ever
wáK-cd, the most unprovoked and the most
unexpected. The king of Frunce was at
this tima at the height of bis power. -The
king-of England "bad been1 In' wbnt "was
supposed to be Rrm alliance with Holland,
aliono atatltholder, afterwards William
fll of England, was his nephew. The ad
ministration of Holland was in the hand,'
of the brothers Dewitt, who were supposed
to have been willfully negligent of affairs
whi n the war broke out. Tun Dutch were
panic-stricken at the calamity which came
on hem aud the political enemies of the
DeWitta goaded toe populace on into mur
dering the tws' statesmen a crime to
which it is to be feared William was privy,

THE OEIGINAL OAPT. BOYCOTT.
The Man Whosit Nam Has f'layart Htuh a

Vroai thaPail Mall úazette.
Away in the heart of Sutlolk, miles re
moved from a railway station, post or tele
graph office, away from the strife and tur
moil, the din and bustle of a busy world,
Capt. Boycott has sought repose from his
Irish troubles. In the quiet, sleepy, leth
argic village of Fhxon "the captain," as
ha is spoken of by the natives, resides in
a pretty villa as agent to Sir Hugh Adair.
To the eye of a stranger be would appear
to be on the shady side of CO.' When' I
called Capt. Boycott was sitting in his of
fice, a dark, gloomy sort of tank, and his
white, flowing beard stood out in plain re
lief. He looks greatly aged.
"No;" be said, "1 don't believe we are a
bit nearer solution of the difficulty now
than we were then," referring to that pe
riod during which the struggle in Ireland
began to assume an ar.utor form, which
Drought lupt. uoycolt luto prominence.
'In tact, in my judgement the vital part
of the difficulty is not approached. If
there is a question to be solved or an un
derstanding to be arrived ut, the question
needing solution or the understanding re
quiring adjustment is wholly and solely in
reference to lund tenure. In saying this 1
am preferring no charge cue way or the
other. I don't at this moment say the
rents arc just or unjust. I simply remark
that it is the land question which is the
mother of Irish discontent. That once out
of the way (though 1 don't seo how it is
to be removed) everything else is settled.
You see the Irish tenantry h.'Vu got the
idea that nothing which 'directly or indi
rectly concerns them is right. There may
be one or tws matters that are not as they
should be " Rathr!" I interposed.
"You;say '.-ather,' " retorted Capt. Boy
cott, with much fierceness; then, gradually
wreathing his countenance in smiles, he
added in nn undertone: "But who is
there who has not a dush uf bitterness in
his enp of joj ?"
"The Irish tenant farmer has diffiulties,"
the coptain continued, shifting round his
chair and tapping tha table once to each
word he uttered, by way of emphasis.
Many ol tbem endeavor to work impos
sibilities; they try to eke out afi existence
upon a piece of land which, in point of
area alone, is incapable of giving them
support. They exiat, not live. Why, 1
ask you, do they do it? The world is wide
enough, why not move nut? What is to
be gained by playing a losing game?"
"If the Irish farmer struggles on terra
after term upon a paltry strip of land,
fighting with difficulties, undergoing pri
vations and crying out in discontent, to
say the least, it seems as though be bad
some little laith in the transaction. If be
works hard oue year and fails to make
ends meet, there is not much chance that
the next year will bring' him better luck.
The Englith farmer is every bit as badly
situated as the Irish far-ucr, but he works
his tactics differently."
DeMESTIOATIBa THE BUTT ALO .
4 L. S. Bedson. of Manitoba has been ex
perimenting with the interbreeding of bi
son since 1878. He tells his experience in
the following narrative: .
In 1878 I purchaser five buffalo calves,
one bull and four heifers, for which I paid
$1,000. From that start I have tt;S pure
blood bulls, 35 pure blood cows, 8 half
breeds, 6 three-quarter breeds and 16 hi ad
prenented to different persons. The half
breeds are. very prolific. They nre also
v-y hardj,as they take the instinct or the
buffalo timing the blizzards and storms
and do not drift like eative cattle; they re
main upon the open prairie during our se
verest winters, while the tliei uiotnctci
ranges from 30 to 40 degrees below zero,
with little or no food except what they rus
tle on the pruirie, and no shelter ut all.
They are always in good order, and I con
sider the meat ot the pure blood much pre
ferable to the domestic nnimals, while the
robe is very fine indeed, the fur being even-
d up on the hind putts the same a on the
The three-quarter breed is an enormous
animal in sise and has an extra good robe,
wjiich readily brings 840 to $50 in any
market where there is a demand for robes.
I had one of my thiee-quaitcr breeds
slaughtered in the spring of 1888 and it
dressed 1,280 pounds. They also are very
proline, nnd 1 consider them the coming
cattle for the northern cliinato. Tht half
and three-quarter )ieed cows when really
matured, will weigh from 1,400 to 1 800
I never have crossed them except with a
common grade of cows, while I believe a
cross with a Galloway would produce the
'.landsoiuest robes ever handled, and make
the best range cattle in the world. 1 have
not had time to give my attention to my
berd more than to let them range on the
prairie at will. By proper care great re
sult can be accomplished.
Half breed cows have calved successful
ly in the spring when the temperature has
been 15 degrees below zero. In one in
stance 1 have kbown a buffalo cow a calve
at HO degrees below aero, and no injury to
either cow or calf.

danger that full credit for Color w's death

around our waist and formed a dam, and
hope to ride the storm if nothing give

lucky our readers don't like dry reading.
We'll come out all right if a fog don't

Frank and Emma Buck, two Kingston

is not dangerous.
Democrat: A new industry hat ttarted
up in lina Cruces the manufacture of
Mexican blankets. On Court street, one
door west of the postoffic, a Mexican has
set up his loom and ttarted to work. It it
quite an interesting sight to tee the man
working at the machine, built entirely "by
binvself out of wood and raw hide, at tb
pattern, different in each blanket, forms
under bis hands. He buys the wool,
cleans, spins, dyes and weaves it himself,
and '.he gaily covered blankets which he
turns out are at warm and durable at can
be got anywhere.
Prospector: A large number of ourter
riUii.il exchanges insist upon it that there
is no mch thing as polygamy existing in
