TW Value of Adtrerijsiat
Constant advertising is cumulative
in effect. Every great mercantile
fortune in existence today bus been
built by regular and systematic advertising. Mnrshall Field, Wunn-
maker and Tiffany are household
words. Pear's soap, the liillette
razor, and the Victor talking machine are known to all who speak
the English language, The success
of each is due to combined nnd sensible advertising. If you hnve a
good article, advertise it.    Publicity
will make it irresistible in competition. If you do not, it is n business

Thon, in the '5Us nnd '(ids, the gold
fever along the Pacific coast raged, and
horses and mules were brought west for
pack animals. In many instances tlu*
mon of tbe 'Ms, like those of the '40s,
perished, and their horses and mutes
joined the ranks of tlu* horses already
roaming the plains nlong the Okanogan
River. From these two bands of horses,
the one from the east and the other
from the south, the best blood of the
kind was blended. But in the rough
lam! of the Okanogan country tin* oiu-e
fine boned animals dwindled in size
from steeds to dwarfs, and the kind disposition gave way to vlciousncss,
The wild horses now litlle resemble

animals, tln-y reconcile thciusclvs lo the
wild free life of the savages.
Thero are about 5,000 wild burses in
this Okanogan band, so wild, in fact,
that att0U1pt8 to break them to halter,

horses will die, commit suicide by
sttangulation, rather than submit to

This is Sunday ngiiin and I am
writing to toll you, "All's Well."
We have enjoyed every day of tho
trip, with tho exception of the dny
tit Suva. There it was too hot for
me and indeed everyone was glud
to Ret away. The night we stopped
tnere seems like a nightmare. For
three days after wo crossed tho
Equator we were in what they
culled the Doldrums, the ocean being just like CllltllS Lake oil a calm
day, the only nir stirring was what
was caused by lho motion of the
bout, so that we travelled  like  this
for over ii thousand miles and lho
beat very oppressive. Some of the
olilcers on the boat suy il is thc
hottest trip tney have ever inade.

but we were glad to leave that place
We expect to get into Auoklaill
nbout Tuesday morning and will
slop tliere n week. Most of the
passengers are going to Australia tt:
tuli- up homes, us tho govornmont
thoro is offering great Inducements
to get settlers into Western Australia. Tliey are Irrigating tho hunl
for them, and loaning them money
for improvements^ it is no wonder
so many are going Into Australia.
Wo have beautiful weather now,
nice fresh breezes and an occasional
shower which seems to cool tho atmosphere, Wo are running directly south nnd the further wo get
uwuy from tbo Equator, the cooler
il is of course. Il is quite oloar
until 7, p.m. We make from 850
lo '170 miles atliiy,
Tuesday .Inn. 10, arrived in
Auckland, Mr. Bruce and Miss
liruce met us at Ihe wharf and bail
no difficulty in singling us oul so
Mrs. Cousins must have given a
pretty good description  of us  to
them. Tbey took us lo a very
homelike hotel where tliey were
acquainted and when wc hoard two
mosquitoes singing around uur
beads il scctnod   more  like   home.
Mrs. Itruce Invited us to Ihelr homo
next day. It is across the harbor
and we went over by the ferry I it nil
und luul lunch wilh them. They
have a cosy home and the garden
is a muss of flowors. If we luul
been their nearest relatives tliey
could not have treated lis boiler,
for they woro so kind tons. Among
other things we had for lunch were
some nice ripe strawberries and
cream.   They camo with us mi the
been thrown up by those volcanoes
is the best land hoi'C. After coining
down the lull we again louk the
train for Onohuiiga which is tlio
end of the trum at tide water. The
cily cutis here which is nine miles
from the post ulliee. Thc people
take life very easy uud there nre no
business blocks hora over live stories
and the residence, nro nil ono storey.
The roofs ure all made of shoot iron.
The weather is line here antl tho
people nre nil great walkers. If
you do walk you arc either climbing up hill or coming down one.
There arc such a nuniboi' of "chomist

We. hail ii great trip to Rotoi-tira.

when wo gol Ibere Jit cleared up

in tho centre of the residential part
of the city and is nbout 1200 feet
or more in height with a great hole
in the centre of it where one can
sec the old lava. The day was hot
but wc were well repaid for our
climb when wc got to the top. Wc
could sec the entire city below us
ou all sides and the harbor beyond.
It was very grand antl wc shall
never forget it. The city is growing rapidly and the population is
about 1 Kl.fXtO. We went from
Mount Eden to the museum.
There you see all the different
weapons of war and wonderful carvings. There is one magnificent
war canoe, 82 feet in length and
7 feet wide and capable of carrying
100 warriors, all beautifully carved,
especially at the bow and stern.
One of thc cannon in the park was
taken ut Waterloo. Tbe weather
here is about like Chilliwack in
lune. Peaches, strawberries and
grapes are ripe. The people do
not seem to work very hard here.
The stores all have verandahs over
the sidewalks and the street lights
me under the verandahs, This
morning we leave h.v train for
llotorurii. It will take us one day
to get there but we were strongly
advised not lo lilies seeing the active
geysers there. We will stop there
a day and come back the following
day. Then we go to Sydney and
slay about four days. We sail from
there to Hong Kong ami then to
Yokohama where we will have to
stay about three weeks before we can
get a boat back. We are sorry we
do not catch either of (be Empresses,
but we will have to come back by
the Minit»agle. You may look for
us about tllO middle of April though.
Auckland, January 24.
Since coming here here wc have
had a most pleasant time taking in
thc sights of tho cily. Thia is a
beautiful city with splendcd location
and line harbors, Mr. and Miss
Bruce have been so kind to US and
taken us to places of interest in tbe
city such as the museum, picture
gallery, etc. Hotels are much
cheaper here than in America, but
thc city is very much behind thc
times. Although it has the same
popuhitinn as Vancouver they unjust getting in electric light now
and very few have it in yet. You
will sec an old man going ai-.uii.il
with a long torch lighting the street
lumps and (he same way in hotels.
They seem to use acctolyna and
gasoline lights. The sidewalks in
front of nil business houses arc all
covered with verandah's .which
keep out Im.11. the sun nntl ruin and
I understand it rains more here
than in  llritish   Columbia.
Mr. and Miss Brttcotook us up to
the "One Tree- Hill." Tills is about
seven miles from the post oflice.
The train leaves people at the base
of the hill and then we climb a
gradual slo|>e of about olKI feet
and from Ihe summit one gets a
niagniliccnt view of not only part
of the city bul of tbe harbor and
gulf nud mountains out about forty
miles. This hill is an extinct
volcano and tliere are two very
largo craters in it which show
plainly what a terrible upheaval
there must have lieen here at prehistoric times. The hill and twenty
acres surrounding it was a gift, to

bail a  line day.     Each  carried   a
lunch basket put up fnr  us  at  the
hotel.    At lirst we were disappointed with the look of the country as
it has a desolate appearance though
wonderfully grand.     At  one time
(hoy tell us this was a beautiful
country,   inhabited   by   a    large
number of  Mamies  who  like  our
Indians at home  usually pick out
the best  places,  but n  little over
twenty yenrs ago there wus a terrible
upheaval frum one of tho mountains
and covered ull the country within if
a radius of fifteen or twenty miles'*
with lava, whole villages disappear- j 4
ing.   After our stage had conveyed I»
lis to the  lakes   we  tben  boarded | X
the gasoline launches.    There  arc!4
three line large lakes quite close  to:*
one another and when you ure high *
Upon  the  bill   above   tbem    they If
look wonderful,   tine is as green*
or greener thun the  ocean,  one  is *
bine ns indigo and one is almost J
as white  as   milk.     The  last  one
we  crossed    in  the   launch   and
cruised around the shores for quite
awhile.    Iu some parts of the lake
tlie water is so hot yon can't  hold
your hand in  il.    The depth  of
this hike is 500 feet.     After  landing we bad lunch by llie shore  and
a guide louk  us  iu  charge   for
wulk uf two or  three  mile-..     All
around you see hot   Is.iling  spring-
an.l steam coming out in ull directions,    Wc g,,t   back  again aboul
six and after dinner went f.u- a stroll.
We  met  a  Maorie   woman    who
told us of a coi rt given nt   eight
by a  numlier of Mnorics,  so   we
went, und I tell vou it wns a  treat.
Tho best of all  was  the singing  nf
solo's und quartettes by the scholars
and young men.     I  never heard
anything   liner.      They    sang   a
number nf  pieces   wc   knew    as
"Home     Sweet      Home"       and
"Jitnnila",    and   you  could   tell
every word. The tenors were beautiful and the buss simply grnnd. The
master of the ceremonies wns
of   the    number,    a    Itev.    .Mr.
Bennett, a line looking man dressed
just like one of our ministers,   Wc
got  up early  next  morning   and
hired u rig und drove out  to some
more hot springs.   There were quite I
a number of Mnorics living at the;
place  and   one   called    "Maggie" |
tiM.k charge  of  us.     She   s|sikci
English well ami  has a  line soft
voice, in fact Ihey all seem to have.
Ono spring  here  is  about   ten  or
fifteen  feel   wide   anil   the   steam

three feel and yot! would just sweur
it was the leaping nf frogs. This is the j
frog pond,    Another makes eyes at
you, you sec where the bubbles form I
on Ihe surface the exact   s1iii|h-  of j
un eye and  a pupil  right  in  tin-
centre.     Another   pond   goes    on j
making flowers just like n  full  expanded rose.     Then another is a
large cavern and yon  would  think
there was u big pig down  in  thc
bottom of it grunting.    Another
was called  the  Bruin pot.     This
jour guide explained wns where   the
Mnorics used to put the heads of
their foes into after battle and cook
thom, boforo eating them. She1
seemed quid- disgusted when telling1

and that now tbey  were trying to;
Just as it iTinkes ono rich,   it's more u matter '>f judgment than of money this question of being well dressed.

Ruth wus hard prossed to keep our

I heard her replies, Sho says It's the
only tlmo I ovor failed to Btand by her,
hm it didn't Bocm in me like anything
bul u joke.
"\w shall want to keep track of

"i ih, l can't tell," answered iiuth,
truthfully enough,
"Arc yuu going far?"
"Ves.    Oh—a long,  long  wny."
Thui. wus true enough too. We
couldn't have gone further mil of their

And sn they kept ii up, Thut night
we made ;i round of the houses und
everyone wus very much surprised and;
very much grieved, und vory curious. J
To ail their Inquiries, 1 made the same
reply; lhat 1 wus going to emigrate.

"Jove," said Brown, who wns with]
ilie insurance company, "bul I wish l

The road to lho. station wus almost

■■I don'l know about that," I an-
Bwered, "but there ;nv chances enough."
Some of the women cried und all the
men shook hands cordially und wished
us good luck. But it didn't mean much
tu me. Tho time l needed thoir handshakes wus gone, I learned later that
as a result of our secrecy 1 wus variously credited with having lost my
reason with my Job; with having Inherited a fortune, with having gambled
in the market, with, thrown In for good
measure, a darker hint about having
misappropriated funds nf ihe United
Woollen. But, somehow, their nastiest

We wore lucky In getting into a new

In, "We must live on five-fifty, that's
all."
"With steak thirty cents n pound?"
"Wo won't have steak. That'B the
point. Our neighbors around here
don't look starved, and thoy have larger families than ours. And ihey don't
oven  buy  Intelligently."
"Huw do you knuw that?"
'I've been watching them nt the
little stores In Ihe square. They pay
thoro us much for half-decayed stuff
us they'd have tu pay fur fresh odds
and ends ai the big market."
She rested her pad upon her knot*.
"Now In the first place, Hilly, we're
going to live much more simply."
"We've never been extravagant," I
Bald.
"Not in a way," she answered slowly,
■'Inn. In aunt her way we huve. l'vo
been doing a lot nf thinking In ihe
last few days and 1 see now where
we've 'uni a great many unnecessary
things."
"Not for the lasl few weeks, anyhow," 1 said.
"Those don't count. But before that
1 menu. For Instance there's coffee.
It's a luxury. Why we spent almost
thirty cents a week un thai alone."
**l  knuw  but—"
"There's another but. There's no
nourishment in coffee and we can't
afford It, We'll spend that money for
milk. We must have good milk und
ynu must get tt for me somewhere up
town. I dun't like tho looks of the milk
around here. Tliat will be eight cents
a day."
"Better have two quarts," 1 suggested.   She thought a moment.
"Ves," she agreed, "two quarts, beeauso that's going to be the basis of
nur food. That's u dollar twelve cents
a week."
Sho made up a little face at this. I
smiled grandly.
"Now for breakfast we must have
oatmeal every morning, And we'll get
it in bulk. I've priced It and It'a only
a little over three cents a pound at
some of tlie stores."
"And   the   kind   we've  alwnys   hud?"
"About twelve when It's done up in
packages. That's about the proportion
by which I expect to cut down everything. But you'll have to eat milk on
it instead of cream. Then wo'll uso
a lot of potatoes, Thoy uro vory good
baked for breakfast. And with them
you muy have salt fish—oh, there are
ii dozen nice ways of fixing thut. And
yuu may huve some griddle cukes and
—you wait and see the things I'll give
you for breakfast. You'll havo to have
n  b 1 luncheon, of course, but we'll
have our principal meal when you get
back from work it night But you
won't get steak. When we do get moat
we'll buy soup bones and meat we can
boll. And Instead of pies and cakes
we'll have nourishing puddings of
cornstarch and rice. There's another
good point—rice. It's cheap nnd wo'll

fish; rock cud uud .such to make good
chowders of or t<> fry In purk fat like
the bass and trout I used to havo buck

ought lo have them at least twice a

we'll live mostly un fish und vegetables,
1 can get thorn fresh at the market"
"II sounds good," I snid.
"Jusi you wait" Bho cried excitedly.
"I'll fatten Up both you and tlic boy."!
"And yourself, little woman," I reminded her. "I'm not '-ruing to lake

"Don't you worry nbout mo," she

l took the rest of tho week as a sorl
,.;' vocation and used it tu got acquainted vitii my  new surroundings,
IfS u  fact thut this section of the City
which for iwonty yurs hud been within n short walk uf my ofilco wus us.
torolgn to nn' o i Europe, i had novor
heforo been down here nnd all I knew
about it was through lho occasional
head-lines In ilu* papers In connection
with stabbing affrays. For the flrsl
day or two i folt ns though I ought to
carry a revolver, Whenever 1 was
forced to loave Ruth alone in tho house'
i instructed hor upon no circumstances I
to upon the door. The hoy and I ur-
rn nged Q secret ro p—un idea the t
pleased him mightily- and until sho
hoard tho single knock followed by
two quick sharp ones, she wus not lo
answer. Bul In wandering around
among these people it wus difficult to I
think of them ns vicious. The Italian
clement was a laughing, lndolent»ap«
pearlng group; Ihe scattered Jewish]
folk wore almosl timid nnd kepi very'
much lo themselves. I didn't find ul
really tough face until I came lo the,
water front when* ihey spoke English.)
On lho third morning after u break-
Ti t , r oatmeal und hot biscuit—nnd.
by the wuy, Ruth effected a fifty per
cent, saving right here by using tho
old fashioned formula of soda und
ere nn nf tartar instead of baking pow-
i ■ i iml baked potatoes, Ruth and the
In v nnd mysolf started on an exploring trip. Our Idea wus to get a bn"
on Jusi whut our opportunities won*
down  lure nnd  to none out  the best
and cheapest places to buy. The thing
that Impressed us right oft was iho
big advantage wo had in being within
easy access of Iho big provision centres. We wenr wiiliin ten minutes'
walk of tin* market, within fifteen of
llie water front, within three uf tlie
squuro uud within twenty nf the do-
pai'tmont stores, At all of those places
we round special bargains for the day
made to attract in town those from a
distance, if une rose early and reached them aboul us Boon as they wore
opened une could often buy things almost ai cost and somotlmos below oust.
For Insiaiur, we went up town to one
of tbo largest but cheaper grade department stores- -we had heard Uh
namo for yours bul had never been
inside the building—and we found thai
in their grocery department thoy hud
special mark-downs every day in the
week fnr u limited supply of goods, Wo
bought sugar this day ul u cent u
pound less than lho market price nnd
good benns for two cents a quart less.
it Bounds at first like rather picayune
saving but It counts up at the end of
the year. Then every stall In the
market had Its bargain of meats -
wholesome bits hul unattractive to
the cureless buyer. Wo bought here
for fifty cents enough round steak tor
Boveral good meals of hash. We couldn't have bought ll for loss thun a dollar   iu   tho   suburbs   and   even   at   that
we wouldn't have known anything
about it for tho store was loo far for
Ruth tu mako a porsonal visit nud the
butcher himself would never have
mentioned Buch nu mid end to a member nf um* neighborhood,
W>* enjoyed wandering around this
big market which in Itself wus like n
trip to another land, Later one of our
favorite   amusemonts   was   to   come
duwu here al night and watch Hie hustling crouds and the lights and the
pretty colors and confusion, ii reminded Ruth, she said, of a country
fair. She always carried a pud und
pencil und made notes of good places
to buy. I still have those and am referring to thom now us I write Ibis.
"Blanks," she writes (I omit the
name, "nice clean store with pleasant
salesman,   lias good soup bones."
Again, "Blank and Blank — good
placo to buy sausage."
Here, loo, the market gardeners
gathered as curly us four o'clock with
their vegetables fresh from thc suburbs. They did mostly u wholesale
business but if one knew how lt waa
always possible to buy of them a cabbage or u head of lettuce or a few apples, or a peck of potatoes. They
were u genial, ruddy-cheeked lot und
afler a while thoy cume to know Ruth.
Often I'd go up there wiih her before
work und she with a basket on her arm
would buy for the day. lt was always, "Good morning, miss," iu answer to her smile. They were respectful whether I was along or not.
Uut for that matter 1 never knew anyone who wasn't respectful to Ruth.
They used to like to see her come, I
think, for sho stood out in rather
marked contrast to the bowed figures
of the other women. Later on ihey
used to save nut for her any particularly choice vegetable Ihey might have.
She Insisted, however, in paying tbem
an extra penny for sueh things.
From the market wo wont down a
series of narrow streets which led to
the water front, Here the vessels frum
the Hanks come In lo unload. The air
was salty and though to us at lirsl
tho wharves seemed dirty we got used
to ihem after a while, and enjoyed
the smell of the t'.sh fresh from lbc*
water.
Seeing whole push carls full of fish
und wai clung thom handled with a
pitch fork us a man tosses hay didn't
whet uur appetites any, but when we
remembered that it was those same
fish—a day or two older.—for which
we hud been paying double the price
charged for them here tho difference
overcame our scruples. The men here
Interested mo. i found that white the
crew of every schooner numbered a
goodly per cent, of foreigners, sllll
the greater part were American born.
The newcomers as a rule bought small
launches of thoir own uml went into
business tor themselves. The English
speaking portion "f Ihe crews wore also, as a rule, ihe rougher element The
loafers and hangers-on nbout the
wharves wen- also English speaking.
This was a  fact   that   Inter on 1  f.uiml
tu im rather significant uml to hold
true iu n general wuy in nil branches
of the lower class of labor.
The liarruoms about hero- always a
pretty Mire Index uf tho men of nny
communlt) were mun- numerous and
uf decidedly a rougher character limn
those aboul tho square,   A man would
be a ; i deal better justified In car-
rytnfl n revolver on ibis stroei than
ho would in Lillle Italy. I never allowed Ruth to como down here alum*.
From here we wandered back and i
found a public playground and bathhouse by the water's edge, This attracted me at once. 1 Investigated
Hits uml found It offered u flue opportunity iur bathing, Little dressing-
rooms were provided und for a penny
a mnn could get a clean towel and
for Ave cents a bathing suit There
Was uo reason thut I could see, however, why we shouldn't provide our
own. Il was within an easy ton minutes of the flat und I BOW'right then
where 1 would get n dip every day.
It wuuld be a great thing fnr the boy,
too, I hud alwnys wanted him to
learn io swim.
nn Uu* wuy homo we passed through
the Jewish quarter nnd 1 made ii note
or lho clothing offered for sale hero.
The street wus lined Wllh securul-hund
stores wlib coaiH and irousers swing*
Ing over tho sidewalk, and tho win-
dows wero filled with odd lota uf ihoeB.
Then too, tliere were the pawnshops.
I'd always thought Of a pawnshop nv
hut being exactly respectable nnd bad
the feollng that anyone who secured
anything from them wus in u way
n receiver of stolen guods.    Hut un I
passed them now, I received a new
Impression, Thoy Beemod, down here,
as legitimate a business us the secondhand stures. The wiudnws offered an
a_3i I'tment of everything frum wnlches
iu banjoes and guns, but among them
I alsu noticed many carpenter's tools
and sn forth, Thai might be a useful
thing to remember,
li was odd huw In it dny our point of
view had changed. If 1 had brought
Ruth and  tho  buy down  through hero
|„ month before, we would all, 1 think,
have been mure impressed by the congestion and the picturesque details of
Ithe squalor than anything else. Wo
would  hnvo  picked   nur  way   gingerly
land Ruth would have sighed often in
pity, and. comparing the lives of these,
' people wllh our own, would probably
have made an extra generous contribution to the Salvation Army tho next
time thoy camo round. I'm not saying
now that there Isn't misery enough
there and 111 every like section of
every city, but I'll suy that ln a great
many cases the sumo people who
grovel iu the filth here would grovel
in a different kind nf filth If they hud
ten thousand a year. At tbut you can't
blame them greatly for they don't
know any better. But when you learn,
as 1 learned later, that some of the
proprietors of those second-hand
stures nnd tiy-blown butcher shops
hnve sons In Harvard und daughters
in Wollesley, ll makes you think, Bui
I'm running ahead.
The point wus that now thnt wn felt
ourselves In a wny one of these people
and viewed tho stroot not from the superior height of native-born Americans but just as emigrants, neither the
soiled cloibcs uf ihe Inhabitants nor
the cluttered sireet swarm ing wllh
laughing youngsters Impressed us unfavorably at all. Tho ImpnsBlvo men
smoking cigarettes nt their doors looked contented enough, tho women were
not   BUCh 08 to excite pity, nml   If  you
noticed, then* were as muny childron
around lho local Bodo water fountains
ns you'd find In a suburban drug store,
They all had clnlhes enough and appeared well fed nnd If M.in  them
looked pasty, the sweel stuff In tho
siuies wus enough to account for that.
At any rale we came hack lo our
lint that dny neither depressed nor
dlscouragod but decidedly ln better
spirits, cf course we had seen unly
the surface and 1 suspected that whon
we really got Into these lives we'd
find a bad condition of things. 11 must
be so, for that wns tho burden of all
wo read. But wc would huve time
enough to worry about that when we
discovered It for ourselves,
(To be continued).
FIGHT  FOR   FLOATED  OYSTERS
The reported new order from lho office of Doctor Wiley, In Washington,
that artificially fattened, or "flouted,"
or "drunken" oysters shall not be sold
In Interstate commerce, will be opposed by the oystermen. notwithstanding
the famous government chemist's declaration, whicli accompanied his decision, that the process of fattening bivalves In fresh wator Is injurious to the
public health.
The impending fight, which Will probably be led by William H. Chew, will
be the second that the oyster fanners
havo made upon Doctor Wiley, Ihe first
one boing & year ago, when they contended with him upon the sumo Issue
und won.
This time, howovor, it is declared by
Dootor Wiley's friends, the chemist Is
backed by facts gathered by government Investigators, and ho is ready to
prove that the fresh-water-fattened
oyster Is only a bloated, disease-bearing and dissolute substitution fur the
real und healthful salt-water production.
Believable reports from Washington
an- to the effect lhat Doctor Wiley has
rescinded tho straddle order N*»*. 126
and renewed lho stringent No. 11"
order that nn oyster taken from sail
water and fattened In fresh water
streams is lo bo sold beyond the confines of the state in which it Is So fattened. Already It is known that Mr.
Chew ts ai work among the oystermen
giving out Information, and a lurge
delegation of these oystermen Is expected at the state house In the near
future to protest against such action
by the federal government.
For many years tho practice of fattening oysters by placing them in
rivers and then giving lho bivalves n
salt-water bath to renew the losl taste
has heen looked upon as a legitimate
business Borne in.ooo men are engaged ln the occupation. But. within
lho last five years chemical analysis
has proved that these oysters are fattened uu nothing olse than the bacilli
In the fresh water nnd which nro ab
font from the salt water. Doctor
Wiley took step-: t,, properly safeguard
the health uf the oyster-loving public
liy warning the department ot agriculture against the condition, and order
Mo. 110 was the result.
Influence,   political   nnd   otherwise,
won the fight against tho order last
year.
Agents from Doctor Wiley's bureau
huv,' been making tests nt various
polnti on the const f,,r several months,
The result, according lo those who
know of the Investigations, has boon
to confirm Doctor Wiley In bis belief
tliat the "big mills" sold over the counters of the big ollles are germ-laden
and dangerous tu the health of the consumer.
"Ten thousand men engagod In the
Industry will be affected," Is to be the
plea of tho oyster farmors in their
fight »n Wiley's order, which Is similar in the cry raised by alt adulterated
food dealers when Duclor Wiley sel
uboul enforcing tbe law.
Ono of thc contentions of Doctor
Wiley's friends nnd admirers is that
the Industry Is the result of a built-up
demand by the oystermen for largo
sail-water oysters, nnd that before the
process Wai begun no one thought of
big bivalves. All were content lo eat
the genuine salt-water uysler, they say.
and the public will eat Just ns many
oysters', and more, if tliey are the real
thing, and will hall wllh delight lh'*
assurance thnt "drunken" oysters ure
no longer on the market.

The event Hint most stirred the

Historians are writing of the Russian
campaign still, digging how fuels out
*if the snow that covered Napuleun's

came very near attaining the Ideal uf
his ambition, the unquestionable mastery of Continental Europe. Auguate
Fournier, tho Austrian, think;* thoro
was a moment when if Napoleon hud

wuuld hnve beon compelled to suo fur

This instrument gives account of

anything which hus taken so many
centuries to Improve and establish as
has the horso will decline und disappear because of unparalleled advancement of the Inventor's genius? It is
scarcely conceivable thut the results of
all the labors of horse-breeders could
be hastily abandoned, more so when It
la a recognized fact that many avenues
for Improvement are sllll open to the
breeder. The best specimens of the
modern horse muy rightly be considered hlgh-claaa animals, still perfection has not been reached, and never
can It be; bul Improvement Is always
possible. As soon as there is opportunity for lmprovemenL there will be
sufficient fascination in tho business
to keep large numbers on-gaffed In It,
and thla will serve to maintain the demand und warrant the continuance of
the business indefinitely.
What has been tho effect exerted
upon Hie horse business by the introduction of other powers und means of
conveyance in the past? Have they
permanently Injured the horse's poalllon in the affairs of man'.' We
think not. They may have had more
or less of a local or transient effect,
but no lasting Injury to horse-breeding
resulted, Mnn, In his desperate efforts to accomplish, as far as possible,
that which Is beyond his power—lho

which tins made rapid transit of both

other powers are lined up in formidable array ognlnat his prestige on tho

The  roadster  and    general -purpose

that cannot woll bo reached by lho inventor's products.   The graceful driver    will    for years  bo tho means of

consequently! his position   is lmpreg-
I liable, and, while the demand Is not so
I great, as for some of the other classes,
[ It Is steady, and bis future Is assured.

Weather conditions, together with
(be stale of iho public highways, which
results from this nml other causes,
make it practically Impossible to replace Ihe horse. He can be rolled upon to go al all times, and difficulties
insurmountable to ether powers and
moans of conveyance are easily overcome by him. Ho can always "get
Hn re," though the motor mny fail.
This aids materially is strengthening
his stronghold.
Concluding', then, that from the
! viewpoint of actual utility in the

safe, and that ibis H strengthened by
Ithe favor In which he is held by the

lllnblo. With the rapidly-Increasing
need of power and means of locomotion
due to increasing population and the

The light for the physical, mental and
social emancipation of women, how- j
ever, while no less important, has been |
much less prolific of results. The bond-
age of women in tbc Chinese Empire J
is perhaps more degrading than in any,
other part of the world, it is no pas-1
sive or intangible or imaginary thing,
but deliberate and positive ami real, as!
the universal practice of foot-bindiog
amply attests.
Thc Hnkka women of Southern
Kwangtung do not bind tbeir feet. In
Canton, only the daughters of the well-
to-do follow the custom. You eau go
thence up the West River five hundred
miles and never see a woman hobble.
In the extreme north of China again,
the Manchu women leave the foot natural, and this is why they are so big,
healthy, and comely. In the rest of
the Empire, foot-binding has beeu not
the folly of the idle, nor the fad of the
fashionable, but a custom that bore upon all classes, poor and rich alike. At
Kaigan, on the Mongolian frontier, the
Held women work kneeling, with grout
pads over the knees to protect thom
from the damp soil. in three districts
In Kotisu, women aro siill era wli ng
nbout their houses upon thoir knees,
reduced to tho locomotion of brutes to
please tho perverted taste of men! In
Shansl nnd Shoos! women wielded the
sickle, not stooping—that would hurt
their poor feet too much—but sitting,
and hitching themselves along as they
reaped. The women had to lie carried
lo the wheat field on wheelbarrow or
cart, and their helplessness is such that
most, of them never in tlieir lives get a
mile away from Ilu* house to which they
wero taken us brides.
It is a saying among the Chinese:
"For each pair of bound feet tliere has
been shed a tuhful of tears." The
bandaging begins lietween the fifth
and seventh years, and for a period of
about three yenrs, until tiie deformity
is practically complete, the little girls
suffer excruciating agony.
"During these three years," says
Mrs. Little, who founded the Natural
Toot Society fifteen yenrs ngo, ''the
girlhood of China presents a most melancholy spectacle. instead of a hop,
skip, and n jump, with rosy cheeks
like the little girls of England, the
poor little things nre leaning heavily
ou a stick SOmowhal BtnillIor thun themselves, or carried on a man's buck, or
sitting, sadly crying. They have great
black lines under their eyes, aud a special curious paleness tlmt I have never
seen except in connection with foot-
binding, Their mothers mostly sleep
with a big stick by the bedside, with
which to get up ami beat the llttlo
girl should she disturb the household
hv her un iis; but not uncommonly she
is put to sleep in an outhouse. The
only relief she gets is either from opium or from banging her foot over the
edge of her  wun-lcn  bedstead  so as to
stop the circulation."
Here the co-operation of the Imperial Government was secured. The Ihu*
press Dowager a fow years ago commanded the people to abandon it. But.
the war ngninsl it has nut been so ng-
gressivo nor so bitter as that against
opium. The appeal hns been largely

ROYALTIES IN SHIPWRECKS
Tho Duchess of Fife und her daughters appear to be the only royalties of
recent years to undergo lho ordeal of
a shipwreck, with ihe possible exception of the Archduke John of Austria,
who, according to one theory, lost his
life at son. Prince Henry of Prussia,
however, who circumnavigated the
globe twice before be was twenty,
has on two occasions braved a watery
grave. Wben he wns u lieutenant liis
ship wns caught In o violent squall and
one of the sailors was washed overboard. Prince Henry plunged after him,
and despite thc heavy sea succeeded
in affecting a rescue. Some years
later bo rescued another sailor from
drowning off the South American
const at a point where the sea Is Infested with sharks.
The Dorsetshire coast was once the
scene of a royal shipwreck. In l.'.OH
I'rinco Philip of Castile and hi* wife
Juana were sailing from Flanders to
.Spain when a violent storm cost ihem
ashore  near  Poole,    P_   ,    vuu  prevailed upon to accept t(« '!
a   local   magnate.   Sir  Thomas   Tren-
chard.   But   Henry   VIE.   In Ited     ba
prince   to   Windsor,   adding
would  take  no refusal.    The   Bar!   if
Arundel, wiih a troop of three b md * id
horse, escorted Philip to the        UL
dence.  where  he  waa  -en* -
about a fortnight.    Henry took   t I   ir_-
tuge  of  the  enforced  visit   ta   a C art
some concessions from tbe prince    a
matters  at  Issue   b< tween    Ham,   utd
then   sent   him   to  Spain   by   wuy   if
