It Frequently Plays Him a Mean

I Mr. Balfour, who bus completed his
sixty-third yeur, is frequently the vie-

' a speech he referred tu Uie late Sir
I Henry Canipbell-Banuermun aa Sir
Henry Banncrmaii, Sir Charles Ban-
; nermun, nnd Mr, Biuinernian. Nut
very long ago he spoke uf Lord
Northampton as Sir Henry Fowler and
Sir William Fowler. There wus another entertaining Instance soma time

official pointed lu the ejialr. Mr. Balfour, seemingly, had totally forgotten

No More Sea-Sickness.
The new Cunard liner Lukonia,
which was launched recently on the
Tyne, England, will be unique iu th*"
uusse'ssioii ol nu invention fur which
is claimed the remarkable virtue thut
It will practically do uwuy with the
Seasickness, The vessel will be ittted
with u large tank occupying the bot-
tutu and sides amidships, and it will
b\i possible by means of a regulator,
to counteract the effect produced  by
the consumption ol coal, stores, etc.
The wuter tank, whicli is divided into
compartments, is covered with air-
tanks, and at the bottom ure spe-
cially constructed water passages.
The tanks are partially filled with
water, and the motion of tiie ship
Is checked by a contrary movement ol
the water from one aide tu the other
through the passages, Tu provide
fur changes in the movement of the
vessel the water which is always under perfect control, can be regulated
to suit circumstances. One or two of
the compartments can be utilized as
required by opening or doting the
valves which nre affixed to the air
tanks, and by completely closing the
valves the passage uf air from Uie
side of the ship to the other is prevented. Iu this way the water in th*
tanks may bo thereby keeping the
vessel from rolling. The Lokonia will
nut only be the tlrst Atlantic liner to
be fitted with the anti-rolling tanks,
but also the tlrst British ship to be
so equipped.
New   Home  fer  Roman   Beat.
The delicate operation of removing
tha Roman boat which was found in
the bed of Uie Thames on the site
of the new London County Hall to
the orangery in Kensington Palaci
Gardens was completed recently with-
out misadventure.
The boat was found embedded deep
down in Uie substratum of the river
bed during excavations last year, and
since it has been exposed tu the air
the beams hnve hardened, cracked,
and shrunk. The whole structure Is
m brittle that H was necessary to
build a frame completely iound it.
The keel had to be enclosed in a box,
as otherwise it would probably have
dropped out altogether.
When the timbers came to be moved a quantity of bones were found in
a very decayed aud brittle condition.
Thcce have been enclosed in wire
uetti.g, and included the rib of a
man and other human remains and
also thc jaw of a dog.
Quaint Galiclan Camp In London,

Wandsworth, London, there are at

from their own land tn the Metropolis, where the remaining members
of the tribe hnve arranged to join

the house, capacious though it is,
could not possibly accommodate the
whole crowd, nml no the extensive
grounds adjoining huve been ulUlaed
iu a camping place. Their Rortreoiis

women have silver. There it nothing

{latient fur su-called {--rogress, they,

to .imilil tin- people as U-st they can

pla-iie of civilization, but this can only
be achieved by gradual methods and
by observing existing conditions.
Ev.-ry improvement must Le by a natural process of evolution which will
cause no extreme dislocation ol present circumstances. We should support the authority of the chiefs. coun<
, cils of elders, aud headmen in native
reserves, and the prestige and inttu-
I ei.ee uf the chiefs can be best upheld
by allowing the peasantry to see that
Government itself treats them as an
integral part of the machinery of the
administration. Native tribes vary
greatly, and whilst some have a natural genius for self-government, oth*
era are more primitively constituted.
Many of the tribes in East Africa
have no chiefs of recognised authority,
but where this is the case tribal of
family authority is vested in a chusrji
council of elders. By upholding Uw
authority of the chiefs and elders it
Is not intended to imply that officeri
should sit down and enforce blindly
all orders Isaued by these men who,
after all, are in a sense savages. The
main object of administering the people through their chiefs is to prevent
disintegration amongst the tribe; but
active interest, supervision, and guidance on the part of the officers uf the'
administration are all necessary foi

Conflict with the rabble.
The policy to be pursued with regard to natives in European settle*

"When I was a buy," said the atory
teller, "1 lived iu tho oil country
and my grandfather owned a big farm
there. They had never found oil wiih*
in five or six mileB ol grandfather's
place, but they were gradually edging
along in his direction, and we all ex*
pectod that sooner or later noun-body,
would uncover a gusher there. That
would mean a fortune for grandfather,
and as I was his only heir I natural*
ly took considerable intere.it In thai
matter Well, one day a rich oil man
came along and m»de an offer for
grandfather's farm. They had struck
a good well near by, and everybody
had come to the conclusion that
grandfather's farm was in the middle
of the oil belt. Our friends advised
against the acceptance of the first
offer, which would have been twenty
times as much as the farm would have
been worth if no oil had been there,
but it was certain that if oil were dis-
covered on the farm we could get |50,.
000 and perhaps $100,000 mure than
the price mentioned by the first bid*
"Seeing that grandfather wouldn't
aell, the man leased a couple of acres
from him aud started to put down a
test well. It was expected that they
wuuld have tu drill about 1,000 feet
to reach the sand in which the uil waa i
located, aud when tiny gut down that
far not a sign of oil had been found,
so they decided to torpedo the thing. I
"The scheme was to put a lot of i
mlro-glycerine into the well and blow
it up. That often made gushers of
what at first aeemed to be dry holes.
They brought a large quantity uf the
explosive stuff to the farm and stored
it in a little shed, expecting to blow
up the well the next day. Here's
where the hard luck comes in.
"It happened that I had a goat, and
tlu-* goat got into the shed whore tht)
exploitive was stored. Iloylike I rush-
ed in to get the goat out, nml (irand-
lathe-r and a crowd of the well-drill*
ers saw me. Thoy were horror-stricken. For a moment nobody could move
or even sneak. Then grandfather of-
len-d his farm tu any one who would
rescue me. One of the drillers accepted the offer and entered the shed,
where he succeeded in getting the
goat by the horna just before he had
butted into the can of nitm-glycerine.
"He Hung the goat out through the
open   dour   of   the   shed,   and   then,
catching me iu hla arms, carried ma
out iu safety to grandfather. Tha
old gentleman insisted ou deeding
the place ov*r to him then and there.
The next day they attempted to torpedo the well and then it was dis*
covered that the can which was sup.
posed to be full ul nitro-glyeerin-i
contained nothing hut lard, and ths
goat died ol the shock it had sus<
tained when it was thrown from ths
shed. Kv.-iitually tho well turned
out to be a gusher,"

French Aviator Makes Some Remark*
able Prophecies.
Much has been written about the
utilization of aeroplanes tn hind warfare; hut M. Beaumont, the winner
of the recent *WfiW nir nice, draws a
remarkable picture of their usu in
naval engagements, And oons'.derabla
weight is lent to the opinion of M.
Beaumont, or rather I,nut. Conneiui,
to give him his correct num.*, by
reason of the fad Hint he is an ex*
pOrieilOed  sn'kr and  gunnery  expert.
lu M. Beaumont's opinion, practically every warship will, in tho near
future, carry an iieioplane. He say-.:
"The so ro pin no will he carried, as tt
matter of course, in a vessel that is
specially adapted lo accommodate it.
There will be m. dilhculty about that.
A platform, large enough (or tho
'inki'-mY nml for the hitidlng of all
aeroplane, can easily hi installed mi
tin* bridge ot a crui-*cr, ami st 11 mora
easily on that of a liner. The aero-
plane will imt be .-..'lit hundreds of
miles awuy from US parent ship, but
will lie Uiod, in a BOIIBO, us a captive'
balloon or a periscope might be.
"When au exploration of the lion*
mm is required, though, lho aviator
can ascend to n great height, and,
without going inure than four *>r tlvj
miles from the ship, can survey a
vast expanse ol wtil.-r. If he signals
that there is smoke, or a vessel th.it
seems to call tor inspection, he will
descend. The ship will then move
close to Ihe luaplo'.oua object, and
he can make another ascent and
examination later on, Bending his
report, in every case, by wireless
telegraphy, if anything should go
wrong, and he has a fall, it is only
a question n| picking him up, with
hia machine. There is nothing Utopian about thia vision of tha future;
it is absolutely simple."
M. Beaumont does not consider that
the aeroplane could be used, at any
rate meantime, as a weapon of id.
fence. He points out that from the
height from which the aeroplane
would have to manoeuvre in order to
keep out of danger, it would he impossible to release a bomb with cer-
tain aim even if the target was so
large a one as a battleship ot the
heaviest type.
There is, however, another use to
which aeroplanes can be put in naval
warfare. It was recently demon*
strated that it wus possible for an
aviator from a height of 1,700 feet-a
height which would render him oruc
tically immune from artillery fire-
to see the movements of -submarines
g0 feet below the surface of the water.
The experiment was carried out recently at Cherbourg, and within a>
few days another French aviator sue
ceaslully transmitted, hy wirelet*!
telegraphy, a message from his aeroplane to a receiver thirty miles away.'
although he was traveling at a height
of 1,640 feet. The receiving wire en
the aeroplane wus nearly 400 feet
long, and automatically unwinds as
the flying machine ri-'-i- Tho dec-
trie apparatus is worked in connection with the aeroplane motor, and
it is hoped that in future experiment
communication may lie possible at t
distance of more than sixty miles.

Jamaica Offers Much to These WSs
Would Succsid.
Sonor G. II. Mi-llunlo, thu Croesus
ol thu West Indies, is very enthusiastic over the smiling isle of Jamaica
which hu believes has h great future
b.-fotu it. He is probably the richest
man iu the Wosl Indies and ibe best
Informed on opportunities lor investment in that fruitful region, in discussing the matter recently he Midi—
"Unless a man has a good-sited nest
egg he will not be able to make much
money in Jamaica. There arc only
three or four industries — growing
sugar cana and bananas, raising cattle
and mining—and capital is absolutely
essential. Laud is cheap, huwever,
ami there are large profits in sugar
and banana*. Then, too, capital ia
absolutely Ba'e In Jamaica. It is the
best-governed of all the Knglish colonies, and no matter where one lives
uu the island one can go t<> sleep with
as much security as in the biggest
hotel in London. A large amount of
capital is being invested there at
present, and scores of people irom
uther places have cottages and bungalows there.
"There are more than 1,000 miles ol
fine macadamized roads on the island,
and although 1 have traveled all over
tiie world 1 know of no place where
one can take a better automobile trip,
"Jamaica will never hove any manufacturing. Its future lies iu the development uf its broad acres. To
make a success ut railing sugar can-*
or bananas one must remain on the
island the greater part of thu year.
There are hundreds ot thousands of
acres that have never been cultivated
and they can be bought very cheaply."

So one night, having had' it conveyed into the library, he set to
work. Struggling hard with the locks,

was utterly astounded to see tbe dead
man standing opposite him, his arm

An Entertaining Experiment With Alcohol and Water.
It Is not easy to Imagine liquids as

the case ns shown by certain familiar
experiments, Wben a certain amount
of powdered augar Is slowly poured
Into warm water, tbe water will d'-*
solre the sugar and appear to absorb
It without Increasing Ita volume, tjiui
llarly, when alcohol Is poured Into wu

Por lustunee, If fifty porta of water
and fifty parts uf alcohol be mUl*d together they wlU make only uluety-four
purts. Apparently one of tbe liquids
Linn entered luto the "pores' of tbe
other. Tbls csperlinent, us commonly
per formed In laboratories, consists In
1 putting measured quantities of the two
liquids together, but the effect would
. bo fnr more striking were It possible
i tot students lo see une of ihe liquids
actually "soaking" Intu the other. This
can be done lu the following wuy:
Take two glasses, one tilled to tba
brim wlib water nml Hie other wltb
alcohol. In order to show the effect
to belter advantage, rulur the alcohol
with red Ink. The glasses should uot
be over full-tbut Is. (he surface of the

Now place the Inverted tumbler over

draw out tbe paper. This can he dune
without spilling ti drop of alcohol, and
yet aa Boon us ilie paper Is removed

Owing to tbe fnt-t that It is colored It
Is possible lo let- the alcohol actually

.'human Taylor, minister uf public
ivorka fur British Columbia, in tbe
'uiirne uf n Bpceoh replete with fnetn
itnl figures hearing un ruail iin-
proveinent and oxtonsion, made the
important Announcement that
Federal a»sisiiinee towards the construction of main rojids in llritisli
Columbia was assured. On behalf
uf the provincial government he
promised a vigoroiw pursuance uf
the Butter Roads policy with which
his name had been associated.
The following were elected officers
uf thc Canadian Highway Association: Hon. President, Hon. Thomas
Taj lor; President, W. J. Kerr,
Westminster; vice-presidents for
the B. C. Coast district, A. J.
McCandlcss, Vancouver Hoard of
Trade; T. S. Baxter, Vancouver

Rowe, Vancouver, vice-presidents
will Iw appointed by all public
bodies which atliliate with tbe Canada! n Highway Association. Treasurer, T. S. Baxter, Vancouver;
secretary, P. \V. Luce, Westminster.
Membership dues were fixed at two
dollars per annum, provision being
made in tbe bylaws for a rate of one
dollar per member tor automobile
clubs, boards of trades and like
bodies, no nssuciatiun being called
upon to pay more thnn SoOO in
dues in any one year.
Koflolutblis calling for support towards the buildingof a Canadian Highway were forwarded to Halifax, N. S.Albernl, B.C., Hiuelt-
oti, B. C„ and Pawson, Yukon Territory. Other resolutions calling
for Federal assistance were sent to
Ottawa, while similar resolutions
praying for provincial assistance
were telegraphed to Victoria. A re
quest thst the Provincial Government set a standard of road building in British Columbia, and that nu
grants be paid for work falling below this standard, met witb unanimous support. Another important
resolution was to tbe effect tbat the
Provincial Government should cm-
ploy road building experts and engineers, these to lie at the disposal
of municipalities ami districts having no resident engineers. A course
of lectures ou Good Roads is suggested in another resolution.
Mrs. A. E.Todd, of Victoria, was
elected honorary member of the
Canadian Highway Association.
Much of tbe credit fur the success
of the formation of tbe Canadian
Highway Association is due to .V.
E. 'florid, of Victoria, ami W. .!.
Kerr, of Westminster, who WOS re-
warded for bis energetic work by
being given the first presidency of
this ambitious organltatlon.
Shortly after midnight "ii Saturday night a lono robber entered llw

iilMiut live feet in height ami weighing about no pounds, disguised his
fenturoa withaclolb mask. United
I States marshals and tbe Canadian
I officers were notified of the robbery.
but no Arrests have su far beon made.

One ol the features of the llouts
ul Commons' cellars is the renowned
Vulentiu vat of Scotch whisky, so-
called after Viscount Valentia, at one
time chuirman of the committee. It
holds seven hundred gallons, and Is
replenished with a specially selected

Lord Itoaebery f«r h's tuoiiograiib
oo Pitt act-epts lor tbe text the com
monly received report as to his hi.-t
words; "Oh, tny country! How I leav.*
my country!" But he gives iu au appendix the Eaxl of lieacunsfleld's sur
dome version of the scene. According
to the latter, a waiter employed by
the caterer Bellamy, who at that tittle
was refreshment contractor to the
House, was knocked up in the middle
ul the night by a messenger who said
to him; "You are to get up and bring
some o! your pork pies down to Mr.
Pitt." The old waiter got up, dressed,
and drove off with the pies. When
he arrived, however, death had already taken place ,snd lie learned
that the last worda uttered by Pitt
had been those which had fetched him
from his bed: "I think I could est
one of Bellamy's pork pies."
All samples of wines uud spitits to
be consumed in the House are in the
first case brought to the notice of a
"tasting" sub-committee, aided by
some of the most expert wiue-tuster's
Id London—as a result the cellars sre
kept full of excellent, sound, matured.
wine at very reasonable prices. For
Instance, a champagne uf first-class
brand, sold at the big hotels at 15 a
bottle, cosh only 13.25 in the House
of Commons. A former chairman ol
the cumiiiittee, now deud, Sir Alfred
Jacoby, showed especial keenness in
meeting tbu requirements ul the most
fastidious appetites, and under his re-,
giiiie  some   molt  exqttJsttely*-Qooksd

Cuticura Soap?
"There is nothing the matter
with my skin, and I thought
Cuticura Soap was only for skin
troubles." True, it is for skin
troubles, but Its great mission is
to prevent skin troubles. For
more than a generation its deli*
cate emollient and prophylactic
properties have rendered it the
standard for this purpose, while
its extreme purity and refreshing
fragrance give to it all the advantages of the licit of toilet soaps.
It is also Invaluable in keeping
the hands soft and white, thc hair
live and glossy, and the scalp
free from dandruff and irritation.
A'hile its first cost is a few cents
more than that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it is prepared with such care
and of such materials, that it wears
to a wafer, often outlasting several
cakes of other soap, and making
its use, in practice, most economical. Cuticura Soap is sold by
druggists and dealers everywhere,
but the truth of these claims may
be demonstrated without cost by
sending to "Cuticura," Dept. 7M,
Boston, U.S. A., for a liberal sample cake, together with a thirty-two
page book on the skin and hair.

When Baron Haussmann went to
Constantinople on a visit to Abdul
Alii, who was then sultan, tie had an
interview with the grand osier, who
did not know a word ul 1- ranch. At
tiy. beginning of the interview the old
long Turkish pipes were brought In,
and theu Banm Haussman began
making a very long speech in French.
The grand viuer oulu uot understand
a word, but listened most attentively
till he noticed that bis pipe had gone
out and clapped his hand for a servant
to come and relight it. Hauar-mann,
thinking he was applauding, rushed
toward turn with outstretched hand,
intending to shake bauds and thank
him. The grand vizier, seeing hi*
hand put forth, shook it warmly and
said ''Good-bye," under the impression it was Haus-manii's intention tc
leave, and quitted the room.

Signals In ths Naval Service.
Top, pop," or perhaps a single
"pop," sharp and distinct like thut or
a ghiut firecracker heard not only ou
the Fourth or July, but ou every day
hi thu yenr, Sundays included. What
did It mean? And ou almost uny
night ub 1 look out of my window I
mo the edge of the wood ur thu Holds

Why tills strange lllumluatluii?
As nil these queur happenings look
place on the railroad a few rods from
luy hwusu I made Inquiries of the railway oilielulu, and here uro some Inter
estlug facts about the use of these
curious "fireworks."
Ttie general superintendent of tlio
New York, New Haven ond llurtfurd
railmtul explained aa follows:
"Our rules prwvtde fur the use of detonators, commonly known ns torpedoes, as iitidlblo signals and ot 'fusees'
as visible signals.
"These tor|H*doeB are ottuched to
the top of Ihe mil ou the engineer's
side of the track hy two smull flexible metal straps, which aro easily
bunt around tbe bull of thu rail, ns
shown In the picture, and bold the
torpedoes securely In place until exploded by ttie first train passing over
tbln (rack.
"Tho explosion of one torpedo Is a
signal to stop; the explosion of two.
not more thnn 200 feet apart Is a signal to reduce speed and louk out for
a atop signal.
"I'be fusees are of similar construction to Ihe well known Itomaii candle
used for fireworks celebrations, except tbat they burn a steady flume
without explosions. A sharp iron spike
at tbe bottom end will usually stick
In the ground or lu the cross tie when
thrown from the rear of a train nud
holds the fusee lo an upright position,
Where It Is more plainly visible.
"A fusee must be lighted and left
by tbe flagman whenever n train Is
running on tbe "time" of another train
Or behind Ita own time and under
circumstances wblcb call for such pro
"A fusee on or near tbe track, burning red, must not be passed. When
burning yellow tbo train may proceed
with caution when tbe way la seen and
known to be clear. Standard fusees
burn red for three minutes and yellow for seven minutes and can be aeen
for quite a distance.
"You will gather from tbe above
explanations that the red glare of a
flaming fusee on or near tbe track
warns the approaching engineer that
0 preceding train baa passed over his
track less tban three minutes abend
of htm. and under no dreumalflncoo
must be pass this signal while burning
red. Wben tbe flame turns to yellow
be may proceed wltb caution, only as
the way ts seen and known to be
clear, keeping to mind tbat when the
fusee changed from red to yellow he
wee exactly three minutes behind a
preceding train, which may hove slopped within a abort distance or mny
be proceeding at an unusually alow
rate of speed."
Tbe superintendent of the Shore line
division, another branch of tbe same
railroad, gives thla additional detail regarding torpedoes:
"When a train stops upon tbe main
line and requires protection against
a following train the flagman goes hack
a specified distance and places one tor
pedo. He tben continues a farther
distance back, placing two torped'**
As soon as the train he la protecting Is
ready to start tbe engineer blows r
Bpeclfled whistle signal, which Is a
notice to the flagman to return to bis
train. On tbe way back be picks ur
tbe one torpedo, leaving two on the
rail to warn tbe engineer of an approaching train that another train Is a
abort distance ahead and to give tbe
flagman time to run back and get
aboard of bis own train."
Of tbe use of fireworks aa algnnla tn
the nary tbe chief of tbe bureau or
construction aud repair of tbe navy department. Washington, rtakca tho following atatement:
"All modern ships are flitted wtth
electric signals, and Ihe use of such
signs Is la general In tbo naval aervlce.
In Ibe case of email vessels having no
electric Installation and also for use In
ease of tbe failure of tbe electric sic
mils tbe navy has a system of colored
atara In connection wlib rockets for
tbe purpose of signaling.
"These are In no sense the ordinary
commercial fireworks, but are menu
factored by the service for uaval use
