By Mary Roberts Rinehart
That day alio realised thai she was
being followed, When Edith's invitation came she accepted it ul oin (or
tbe sake ot losing herself nnd lier
papers until Bhe wns ready to uso
tbem. li bad dlscouoerted ber to Hnd
Margery there, but she managed tn get
along. For several days everything
had gone well. She was gel I inn stronger again, ready for the second act of
tho play, prepared to blackmail
Schwartz and then expose him. She
would have hilled him later probably.
She wanted her measure full and running over, ami so she would disgrace
him llrst.
Then Schwartz must have learned of
the loss of the papers from the Fleming house and guessed tbo rest. She
fell sure he had known from Ihe lirst
who had killed Fleming. However,
that might he, be had had her room
entered, Margery chloroformed iu the
collecting room, and her papers were
taken from under her pillow while she
was pretending anaesthesia. She had
followed the two men through tba
house and out the kitchen door, where
she had fainted ou the grass.
The next night when she had retired
early, leaving Margery and me downstairs, it had been an excuse to slip
out of the house, llow she found lhat
Schwartz was at (he White Cat, how
she got through the side entrance wo
never knew. He had burned the papers before she got thero, and when
she tried to kill him he had struck her
hand aside.
At noon that day I telephoned to
"Come up," I said, "and bring, the
keys to Ibe Monmouth avenue house.
I have some things to tell you and���
some tilings to ask you."
I met her at the station with Lady
Cray aud the trap. My plans for
that afternoon were comprehensive.
They included what 1 hoped to be
the solution of Hie Aunt Jane mystery. Also they included a little
drive through the park and a���well,
1 shall tell about that all 1 am going
to loll at Hie proper time.
To play propriety, Edith met us at
tho bouse. It was still closed, and
even in Ihe short time that had
lapsed it sinellcd" close and musty.
At the door into tha drawing room
1 stopped Ihem.
"Now, this is going to ho a sort, of
game," I explained. "It's a sort of
button, button, who's got the button,
without the button. We are looking
for a drawer, receptacle or closet,
which shall contain, bunched together, and without regard to whether
thoy should be I here or not, a small
��� revolver, two military brushes and a
clothes brush, two or three soft, bosomed shirts, perhaps a half dozen
collars, and a suit of underwear. Also
a small flat package about eight
Inches long and Ihreo wiue."
"What in 'he world aro you talking
about?" asked Edith.
"I  am not  talking, I  am  theorizing," I  explained.
I think Margery caught my idea at
In Several Places. Blister Raised
Up, Swollen and Scaly. Hair Fell

once, and as Edith was ready for
anything, we commenced the search.
Edith took the top door, being accustomed, ;.ho said, to Hading unexpected things in the servants' Quarters;
Margery took the lower floor, aud. for
certain  reasons.  1  took tbe second.
For Ien minutes there was no 1'0-
sull. Al the end of that lime 1 had
finished two rooms and commenced
on the blue boudoir. And here, on lhe
lop shelf of a three cornered Empire
cupboard, with glass doors and
spindle legs, 1 found whal I wns looking for. Every article was there. 1
stuffed a small pucka. ������ Into my
pocket and  called  the two girls-
"Tbe lost is found." I stated calmly, when We were all together in the
"When did you lose anything?"
Edith demanded. "Do you mean to
say, .lack Knox, that you brought uu
here lo help you Hurt a suit of gundy
pajamas and a pair of military
"1 brought you here to Hud Aunt
Jane," I said soberly, taking a letter
and ihe Hut package on' of my pocket. "You see. my theory worked
out. Here is Aunt .lane, and there is
the money from the Russia leather
1 laid the packet in Margery's la'p
and without ceremony opened the
letter.   It began:
My Dearest N'ieeo���I am writing to
you hecause I cannot think what to
say to Sister Letltia. 1 am running
away! I���am���running���away! My
dear, it scares me even to write it all
alone In this empty house. 1 havo
had a cup of tea u\t of one of your
lovely cups and a nap on your pretty
couch, and just as soon as >, is dar.;
1 am going to take the train for Boston. When you get this I will be. on
the ocean���the ocean, my dear, thai
1 have read about and dreamed about
and never seen!
1 am going to realize a dream of
forty years���more '.ban twice as long
as you have lived. Your dear mother saw t.he continent before she died,
but tlie things I have wanted bave always been denied ine. I have been one
of those that have pyes to seo and
see not. So���T have run away. I am
going to London and Paris and even
to Italy -f the money your father gave
me for lhe pearls will bold out. For a
year now 1 have been getting steamship circulars, and I have taken a little French through a correspondence
school. That was why I always made
you slug French songs, dearie. I
wanted to learn tho accent. 1 think I
should do very well If I could only
sibg my French instead of speaking
I am afraid that Sister Lelilia discovered that I had taken some of the
pearls, but half of them were mine,
from our mother, nnd, although I
had wanted a pearl ring all my life, I
havo never had one. I am going to
buy me a bat intsead of a bonnet and
clothes and pretty things underneath
and a Bwltch. Margery, I have wanted a switch for thirty years.
1 suppose Lelilia will never want
mo hack. Perhaps I shall not want to
come. I tried to write to her when
I was leaving, but 1 bad cut my band
in tbe attic, where I had bidden
away my clothes, and it bled on the
paper. I have been worried since for
fear your Aunt. Letltia would find the
paper In the basket, and be alarmed
at tho stains. I wanted to leave
things in order���please tell Letltla���
but I was so nervous and in such a
hurry! I walked three miles to
Wynton and took a.street car. I just
mado up my mind I was going to do
It. I am sixty-five, and it is time I
have a chance to do things I like.
I came In on tbo car and camo directly here. I got in wltb tbe second key on your key ring. Did you
miss It? And 1 did the strangest
thing at l'Uwood. I got down the
stairs very quietly and out on to th;
porch. I set down my empty travelling bag���I was going lo buy everything new In Ihe city���to close the
door behind me. Then I was sure I
beard some somo at the side of the
house, and I picked it up nnd ran
down tbo path in tbe dark.
You can imagine my surprise when
I opened the bag this morning to find
I had picked up Harry's! I am emptying it. and taking it with me, for be
has mine.
If you llipl this right, away, plcaso
don't loll Sisler Letltla for a day or
two. You know how llrm your Aunl
Letltla is. I shall send her a present
from Boston to pacify ber, and perhaps when I come back In threo or
four months sho will be over tbo
I am not, quite comfortable about
your father, Margery. Ho is not like
himself. The last time I saw him he
gave mo a little piece of paper with
a number on It, and ho said they followed him everywhere and were driving him crazy. Try to have bim sec
a doctor. And I left a bottle of complexion cream in the little closet over
my mantel, where I had bidden my
lint and shoes that I wore. Please destroy it before your Aunt Letltla sees
Goodby, my dear niece! I suppose
I am growing frivolous in my old
age, but I am going to h&veBjlk linings In my clothes before I di..''
When Margery stopped reading
there was an amazed silence. Then
wc threo burst into relieved, uncontrollable mirth. Tho dear, Ilttlo old
lady, with her new independence and
her sixty-five-year-old, romantic,
starved heart!
Then we opened the packet, which
was a sadder business, for it had represented Allan Fleming's last clutch
at his waning public, credit.
Edith ran to the telephone with the
news for Fred, a

Cured by Toning the Blood and Strengthening the Nerves
ll is the opinion of tho best medical authorities, after long observation, that nervous diseases are more
common and more serious in the
spring than at any other time cf the
year. Vital changes in the system,
afler long winter months, may cause
much more trouble than the .familiar
spring weakness* and weariness from
which most people suffer as the result of Indoor lite, in poorly ventilated and often overheated building-
Official recorls prove that in April
and May neu.'algla, St. Vitus dance,
epilepsy and other forms of nerve
troubles arc at their worst, and that
then, more than any other time, a
blood-making, nerve-restoring tor.ic
is needed.
The antiquated custom of taking
purgatives in the spring is useless,
for the system really needs strengthening, while purgatives only gallop
through the bowels, leaving you
weaker. Dr. Williams' Pinlt Pills arc
the best medicine, for they actually
make the new, rich, red blood that
feeds tho starved nerves, and thus
cure the many forms of nervous dis-
ordtrs. They cure also such otber
fo'.-ms of spring troubles as headaches, poor appetite, weakness in the
limbs, as well as emove unsightly
pimples and eruptions. )u fact thoy
unfailingly bring new health and
strength to weak, tired and depressed men, women and children.

Lepers and Their Reduction

Asia,  South Africa, and elsewhere.
The continued menace of the disease is surprising iu view of Ita
feeble contagiousness. Dr. ii. Bayou,
South African bacteriologist, states
that infection occurs tu only about
two per cent, of the persons living

Mr. Thwaites, while returning
from Courtenay last Tuesday afternoon, was run iuto by a car going
to Union Bay. The two motors
met on a narrow piece of road between Holt's and Taylor's. Mr,
Thwaites pulled up, but the other
car came sailing up, trying to pass
in an impossible space. The for-
nitrs motor was hardly damaged at
all, but we understand from a person who saw the latter car last night
that one front wheel was heading
for the sea and the other for the
mountains, the steering gear and
brake also being out of commission.

Campbell River
In order to prepare surveys to
carry the line of the Esquimalt and
Nanaimo railway northward along
the shore of Vancouver Island, a
party of engineers and surveyors
from the C. P. R. have arrived at
Campbell River. The party has
been split into two crews, one of
which is working south of Campbell River, and the other northward. The latter party has gone
through on the trail built by the
timber department into the Salmon
River valley.
The E. & N. at present extends
to Courtenay, 35 miles south of
Campbell River, and the road has
been projected as far as Campbell
River. The presence of the survey
parties in the field is taken as an
indication that the C. P. R. plans
to continue the E. & N. line
through Campbell River to the
north end of the Island.

effect that British Columbia has set

compensation for dairy herd cattle
infected with the disease. Apart
from its value from a purely publicity standpoint, this statement,
made at federal headquarters shows
British Columbia to be a leader
along the path of higher civilization, and, though opinions may
differ on the method of operation
of the statute referred to, the
provincial government must be
given credit for its wisdom in so

Now that the camps are open
and the pay roll will be circulating
in the district, we may look forward to a large influx of gentry
with stock of all kinds of get-rich
schemes to sell. The Comox people
should be pretty well educated by
this time, and should buy nothing
from outside peddlers. If their
schemes were any good they could
find plenty of money near home to
finance them. If you have any
money to invest put it into something right at home. There is not
a district iu the whole of B. C.
to compare with this, Keep your
money here and try and induce
others to come here and build up
the district and enjoy the prosperity
that is going.
Leafiet No, 2 of the poultry
division of the Government live
stock branch deals with a matter
which is of special importance to
the public at this time, when the
poultry breeding season is drawing
to a close. From now on, the
male birds are of no vaule to the
flock and but few are of sufficient
worth to warrant being kept over
until another season. In fact,
their presence in the flock after
June first is decidedly harmful;
they produce no revenue, they
consume much feed and they contribute materially to the enormous
loss charged back to farmers and
others through the sale of bad eggs
and partly incubated eggs.
The prices quoted for roosters
are now much higher than they
will be later in the summer. From
every standpoint, therefore, the
present is decidedly the best time
for disposing of them.

Wliy Time Can't be Defined
Tlmo IB something which cannot be
adequately defined. It ls what scientists call a vclatlvo thing���something
dependont on other things. It is. of
course, measured by events, or rather
tlie sequenco of events.
Suppose, tor instance, that it. taUoa
a man ono second to raise and lower
hla band. If there are other beings
that can perform the same nelion in a
hundredth of a second, that period
will ho a second to them, tor, after all,
we measure time by tlie number of
physical actions we can perform. This
being the case, certain Insects that
live only a week have really lived sov-
eral years.
if we can Imagine buman lite on an
electron, that tiny piirilc'ij of modem
physics, u thousand of which are
found iu an atom of hydrogen, ono
second of our time is about twenty billion years to theni. On tho Other
hand, if wo can Imagine that stellar
systems have Ufa, one of tlieir seconds
is about twenty billions of our years.
A great, many things depend upon
this idea of time. One minister ex-
plans the miracle ot turning water Into wine by saying it all means simply
that the time of growth ot the grape
was shortened. The reason a quick,
active, man accomplishes so much
more "in lho same time than a slow
ono Is that he lives hy a different system of time than the other.

Banking In England
Tho system of credit in Kngland is
different from that iu this country,
and the mere fact that a man has an
account In a bank serves to give him
standing. One cannot open an account With a hank in England merely
by carrying money to the haul; and
depositing it He must have two lirst
class references before a bank will
accept his account, and when reference is given it means that the person giving it would indorse or stand
for the person to whom It is given.
A reference In Kngland means more
than a mere phrase. Checks on banks
in England cannot he obtained for
the mere asking, and a man must
have an account in order to get
chocks from any bank. They cannot
bo picked up on hank counters or in
public places. Private accounts In
English banks are not accepted unless Ihey are paid for, th. general
charge being $50 a year. There are
ono or two hanks in England which
discriminate so carefully In the accounts they accept, that, when a person is fortunate enough to be permitted to open an account With them
he can get credit, in" any city in England or on tha continent of Europe.

4 Message to Women
From one who has learned to appreciate Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Modern life whether in the office, factory or home means
an enormous strain on the more delicate nervous system of
women. Whether it is the girl behind the counter or tha
lady going the round of society functions, the nerves are at
high tension and require an abundance of rich, red blood it
health is to be maintained.
Because Dr. Chase's Nerve Food forms new, rich blood,
it is eminently successful in curing the ailments which cause
the greater part of woman's suffering and has become duly
popular among those who have learned of its merits.
Mrs. M. A. South. Grand Prairie, Alta.. writes:���"I
cannot begin to tell you how much good Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food has done me. I was all run down, had no appetite,
and suffered each month in a way only women will understand. After having followed this treatment for some week*
I feel like a different woman, sleep well, have a good appetite
and am able to do my own work, even during the time that
I "formerly had so much suffering. I have no pains whatever
now, which is an entirely new experience for me. You may
publish, this letter as I want all women to know how Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food has helped me, and I feel sure it will
do as much for any woman."

New Seems Reasonable to Expect
That Some Day Speech Transmission From England to America Will
be Effected by the Perfection of
Whtless System.
In a lecture delivered at the lloyal
Institution, London, Dr. .1. A. Fleming,
PUS., described the inventions which
of late years have rendered possible a
greal Increase in the distance of lelc-
phonlo communication and Have permitted the use or submarine telephone
cableg over distances previously lm-
Thi' lecturer explained  Unit  III  the
i use of a telephone wire the shortest
the wave length the greater tho velocity with Which the waves travel,
Willie I tie amplitude of the Bhortcr
waves attenuates tc a greater extent
than that of Ihe longer ones.
Hence when, as a result of speaking
to a telephone transmitter, a complex
eloctromotlve force Is applied to ihe
nid of a cable the various simple harmonic waves inlo Which the impulse
may he resolved travel along tbo
table with, unequal speed and attenuation, The short waves travel fastest.
but are worn out soonest; hence the
wave form is distorted.
Advance   by   Prof.   Pupin
A remedy for the distortion of articulate sounds was lirst suggested by
Mr. Oliver lleavysule, who showed
mathematically twenty-five years ago
how waves of all lengths could be
made to travel at the same speed and
attenuate the same rate.
An important advance was mado by
Prof, Pupln of Columbia college, New
Vork, in 1800 and 1900, when he
proved that. Heavyside's suggestion
can be put ilito practical form by loading the cable with colls of wire wound
on iron wire cores, inserted at equal
Intervals, but so close' that at least
tight or nine coils are Included in the
distance ol one wave length of the
average wave frequency, which is always taken at 800.
If the coils are placed farther apart
relatively to the wave length they do
more harm than good. Aerial lines,
underground, cables, aud submarine
cables, can all be treated in thia way.
New York to Denver Line
The longest aerial loaded line Is
that from New York to Denver, 2,000
miles, which permits good speech between these places, and It is tho ambition of the American Telephone and
Telegraph Company to complete a
loaded line that will render speech
possible between New York and San
Francisco, over 3,000 miles.
A line las just been completed between Berlin and Rome. It runs overhead, except through tho Simpjon tunnel, with loading colis at every eight
miles, and good speech is possible
over the whole distance.
In England the longest loaded lines
are two t.unk lines from London to
Leeds, 200 miles. The general post
office has now ln operation 30,000
miles of aerial and underground circuits, and 45,545 miles are ln the
course of being loaded.
As regards loaded submarine cables
lhe general post office has three���one
to Prance, one to Belgium, 48 miles;'
snd one to Ireland, sixty-four miles.
A fourth which Is now being manufactured, is to be laid from Suffolk to
the nearest point ln Holland, 125
miles., Broadly, loading has rendered
It possiblo to double or more than
double the distance of effective telephone Intercourse.
In regard to wireless telephony Dr.
Fleming said the arrangements are
closely similar to those employed In
wireless telegraphy but in the base of
the antenna, or coupled to it, must be
placed a micraphone by means of
which the speaker's voice makes
changes ln the resistance ot the antenna circuit, the result being to vary
the amplitude of the waves emitted
without altering their wave length.
The difficulty is to obtain a microphone that will carry large high frequency currents. By the aid of an ingenious liquid microphone Prof. Vannl
of Rome, has transmitted speech for
<_5 miles. Fesscnden, In the United
States has telephoned a few hundred
miles, nnd Poulsen, in Denmark, Colin
and Jeancc In France, Goldschmidt in
Germany, and Dltcham ln England
have covered greater or less distances.
Mr. Marjonl recently carried out demonstrations With wireless telephony
for the Italian navy.
The lecturer concluded by remarking that we are yet a long way from
telephony across the Atlantic, whether with cables or by wireless, but progress will continue to be made, and
It Is possible that some day speech
transmission from England to San
Francisco, with ono repetition at New
York, may he an accomplished fact.

Government Report Says 74 Per Cent.
Contain Benzoate of Soda
A bulletin from the laboratory of
thu inland revenue department on the
examination of TO samples of tomato
catsup sold in Canada shows that "4
per cent, of the collection contains a
preservative In the form of benzoic
acid tbenzoato of soda), ln 38 per
cent., dye has been added to tlie preparation. The amount of solids in a
number of samples was very low.
There are, however, uo definite standards for catsup In this country and
though tho analysis allows n great
variation in quality, none of the
samples is condemned. The matter of
Using standards Is to ho taken up by
the department.
"The present .collection shows 71
per cent, of the collection to contain
preservatives,"  says the  bulletin,  'In
every case tlie preservative Is benzoio
acid, showing that benzoate of soda
has completely displaced salicylic acid
us a preservative of catsup.
"It ls evident that manufacturers of
tomato catsup are impressed with the
necessity of adding a preservative,
either lo the lliilslied article, or to
the stalk frcm which this Is made.
Wo have not as yet, forbidden the
uso of lienzoato of soda in foods, as
Um evidence of Its use in minimum
amounts to prevent spoilage, Is not
harmful to health.
"Careful study or IIiIb matter wns
made by the referee board of the
United Stales department of agriculture ln 1000, In which it was declared that "It having been determined benzoate of soda, mixed with
food Is not doleterouts or poisonous
and is not injurious to health, no objection will bo raised under foods and
drugs act to the uso of food containing
benzoate of soda, provided that each
container or package of such food
ls plainly labelled to show the presence and amount of benzoate of soda."
Several state laws, however, forbid its
employment ln foods,"

It is understood that Marcus Loew.
who became king of vaudeville
through the purchase of the Sullivan-
ConBldlne circuit, has his eyo on
Northwest Canada and is contemplating an addition to his already gigantic
circuit by building theatres in several
of the thriving Canadian cities. Loew
now owns theatres in Vancouver, Winnipeg and Toronto, is building in
Montreal and Ottawa and of course
has big connections ln the States. He
is desirious of building a chain cf
theatres which will connect his Vancouver with his Winnipeg and Toronto houses. He first got tho idea when
his big musical comedy "Hanky Faulty" went through the territory he is
now contemplating building on. The
success of the production on this trip
through the Canadian cities showed
Mr. Loew the pcsslbllltics. A chain
across Northwest Canada would enable him to route a show in one big
[���loop, which would cross eastward
from New York to San Francisco, go
north to Portland and Seattle and return eastward again by way of the
chain he is thinking ol building.
If Mr. Loew decides to erect this
chain of theatres, he will probcbly establish a house in Calgary and another in Edmonton. Coming eastward, he
would build theatres in Saskatoon,
Prince Albert, Regina, Brandon and
Moose Jaw, which would bring his
show directly into Winulpeg. From
there It would be easy to reach Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, while the
jump, back to New York could be
broken by playing his houses in Buffalo and Rochester. To erect this
chain would of course take millions,
but Loew 19 tho master of millions
and it would be no difficulty in financing this huge project.

California's Fish and Game
From Sacramento comes this item
bearing on subjects ln which our
sport3inen readers will be interested:
"The annual report of the stt.te fish
and game commission, Just filed, estimates that tho sportsmen of California spent $25,000,000 yearly In fishing
and hunting in California. The commission places a value of $200,000,000
on the fish and gam�� of California.
The state game farm since 1008 has
raised 4.281 pheasants, 1,005 turkeys,
2,338 partridges, 2,524 quail and 106
guinea fowl.
Says Traffic to Canada Will Decrease
The Cunard company's chairman,
at the annual meeting of the company
at Liverpool, prophesied the diminution of freight and passenger traffic to
Canada this year. He registered that
recent direct sailings to New York
had even the appearance of unfriendliness towards Queenstown, but that
the company would still tnaiataln
tlieir old highly valued relations with
the IrlBh port through the Boston and
Canadian services. The past year
gross receipts Increased  ��750,000.
The Edmonton District Is Reported to
Have the Largest Coal Fields In the
Dominion���The Crow's Nest Paca
Holds First Place in Alberta as to
Tlio very rapid development, of
the coal industry of Alberta is shown
by III-res Which have just been compiled regarding tlie operations of coal
mines In the province In 1918, Tons
of coal mined In Alberta during 1913
numbered 4,806,846, being an Inoreasa
Ot 869,967 over 1012. During the past
eight years tho coal output for Alberta has Increased 500 per cent.
Tho Edmonton district lias the
largest coal fields, not only in Alberta,
but In the Dominion. These areas are
being opened up as fast aB railway
communication and capital mako their
operation possible. At tlio present
time the Crow's Nest holds llrst place
among the coal producing districts ln
Alberta, having an output of 1,840,435
tons. Lethbridge comes next with
060,020 tons; Edmonton third with
863,430 tons, iXsA Calgary fourth witli
627,461 tons. A largo number of new
mines wero opened up during the
year, mostly in the Edmonton coal
field. Some of theso were closed
down again, on account of tlie fact
that at tho present time they aro not
served by railways.
8,000 Men Employed
An increased number of men found
employment in tho mines of the province during 1013, the total number
of men engaged !n the mines, both
abovj aud below ground being given
as 8,608. Machinery is coming to be
used more and more in getting out
tho coal. In the lig-.iito field more
than half the coal is mined by machinery, but no machinery is u.sed for
coal cutting In the bituminous or anthracite fields. Twenty-nine mines
are using electricity. Telephones have
been installed in the larger mines and
are proving of great service, both tn
assisting the management of the
mines and ln obtaining assistance
when r.ccldents occur.
Mine rescue stations have been es-
ti Wished, two In the Lethbridge district and the other between Coleman
and Burmis. Others will be established shortly in the northern part of the
province. The stations are equipped
with up-to-date apparatus and com
plete appliances for rendering first
aid work very readily. 221 having represented themselves for training during the year and 51 have beeu granted certificates for proficiency.
There wore 28 fatal accidents in
mines in tho province during 1013,
Most of these occurred In the smaller
mines, where the managers are not
required to hold first-class certificates
and are not so conversant with the
Mines act.

Murderer To Get Respite From Year
to Year if He  Behaves
A respite of a year and a day has
been granted by Governor Cox of
Columbus, Ohio, in the case of Leslie
Humphries, under sentence to die in
the electric chair.
While the death sentence will continue to hang over the man. Governor
Cox made It known that he will recommend to future governors that
respites be granted from year to year,
provided Humphreys makes a good
record as a prisoner In the Ohio penitentiary.
His wages as a prisoner will be
turned over to his dependant family.
The governor's action in the Humphries' case Is without precedent In
Ohio. Humphries killed Samuel S.
Kelly of Lanark, W.Va. After his
arrest he confessed that he robbed
his victim of several hundred dollars.
Later he maintained that the killing
resulted during a fight.
Britain and United States
Sir Cecil Spiing-Hice and Secretary
Bryan discussed the outline of the
Peace commission treaty to bind the
United States and Great Britain to
submit to a commission any issues yet
to be adjusted. It will take a little
time to perfect the new convtt.tlon
before its application to Britain's five
great colonies, Canada, Australia, New-
Zealand, South Africa and Newfoundland, each of which have to be consulted.
Iodine for Diseased Cattle
The French academy of science has
come out In favor of the use of Iodine
in diseases cattle. The academy asserts that Iodine is a radical cure for
anthrax and other ailments. Prof. Por-
rler said that all cattle, which showed
signs of eruption on side in the shape
of bolls or other sores should b3
lanced in the sore places and a cubic
centimeter of Iodine applied.

Captures mado In lho mountains during recent sears. The new addition
is a splendid specimen of the wolverine, which was captured by Joe

This is Hie most vicious and dangerous animal In the mountains, and
the hardest to capture; while he kills
an immense number of deer annually.
His history is less known than any

Can Write Anywhere
Sir Gilbert Parker, tlie Canadian
novelist, has something like twenty-
five books to his credit, and Beveral
of Lis novels have achieved great
popularity. One of them, "The Seats
of the Mighty," was presented lu
dramatic form by Sir Herbert Tree.
Sir Gilbert Parker Is one of those
fortunate authors who can write anywhere, and under any conditions.
"There are." be asserts, "times when
absolute silence is painful, and then
a hand organ under the window is a
positive relief. Usually I write with
comparative case and facility, and If
a thing does not seize me I drop It
for a time. Onco obsorbed ln a novel
and I can write under almost any
circumstances. One of the concluding chapters of 'The Trail of the
Sword' I wrote In a railway train;
two chapters of 'The Translation of a
Savage' I wrote between London and
. ew York. Some of my short stories
have been written among crowds of
people when I was waiting for a
New Invention Which Will Use Wind
to thj  Exclusion of Other
Motive  Power
A new type of flying machine, the
object of which lu to enable a man
to imitate birds in utilizing the wind
to tho exclusion of other motive power, was described at the congress of
the Society of Savants In Paris. The
invention is that of Dr. A. Magnan,
and the flight it is intended to make
is a kind of a continuous volplane.
After the manner of large birds
the apparatus is provided with a
spreading tail and two tapering
wings, the wings being so placed as
to enable it to remain motionless.
The control of the machine must be
acquried by practice, as ln the case
of a bicycle, and, It is admitted, tbis
will present great difficulty and even
Not Inventor of Air Brake
Although he makes no claim against
the Westinghouse company, a wealthy
Frenchman, named Debruges Lebaillf,
aged 72 asserts again that in 1868 he
invented the compressed air brake
credited to George Westlnghouse and
patented it.
Ho presented a model fitted with a
brake, he says, to Prince Jerome Bon-
apart, who offered to back tho invention, but Lebaillf's father refused
tho prince's offer and the invention
eventually became public property.
Lebaillf, however, made a fortune
with other Invention _
Plans    For   a Defence Conference of
Great   Britain   and   Her   Dominions
Belr.g      Prepared���Empire    Policy
Dealing With the Whole Situation.
Plans for a defence conference of
Great Britain and her dominions are
rapidly    assuming form and will be
Complete when the consent of Canada
Is gained.   Australia and New Zealand
havo  already  announced  their desire
for such a conference, r.nd since tlie
problem cf the Pacific will    te   the
chief topic considered by the meeting,
It Is believed that Canada will Join lha
other dominions.
As a result of the trip which a parliamentary committee made to the dominions it was found that Australian
and New Zealand Statesmen believed
firmly that tlie problem of the coming
decade will be the maintenance of the
supremacy of iho white race ln the
Pacific. It was pointed out to the committee that Japan Ic making preparations to develop trade and emigration
towards the Antipodes, and that there
is a constant How of Chinese to tha
Islands of the Pacific. Prance has already largely increased her steamship
facilities to these islands, and Germany, Holland and tho United States
are also active in the same region.
Tlie detarmtnatlon of tlio government
to bring about the conference has
been increased by reports from Si-
Maurice 1 .tzmaurlco, who has been
advising the commonwealth government on naval matters antl Sir Ian
Hamilton, Inspector general of oversea forces. It has not yet been decided whether the conference will be
iii London, Canada or Australia.
Dislike Churchill's Suggestion
Australia and New Zealand have
not taken kindly to the suggestion
mado by lion. Winston Churchill, tlrst
lord of the admiralty, in ills speech
introducing the naval estimates, that
tho safety of these two countries wu
secured by tlto Anglo-Japanese alliance. William Pergu.cu Massey,
prime minister of New Zealand, led
an attack on the first lord In a recent
speech at Ureymouth, iu which he
said he did nol believe the alliance bad
secured the safety of the British Dominions In the Antipodes.
J. 11. Cook, .prime minister ot thai
Commonwealth of Australia, who
stated the case for the dominions
at greater length, said: "We are told
by Imperial statesmen that tbe Pacific
Is being made safe and secure, nor. by
the might and majesty of the Brtlish
fleet but by the Anglo-Japanese alliance. Tht.t raises for Australia a very
serious qeustion. 1 hope that Australia will always be on friendly terma
with Japan and get closer to ber ia
th.- relations of trade and commerce
and the peaceful acts of civilization
and that the treaty will continue in
its present form, for I believe it to be
a great power for peace; but when
Australia is asked to rely on th*
Anglo-Japanese treaty for tbe 'afence
of the Pacific, a very serious situation
is created. Japan is a nation whose
people Australia does not admit to her
shores. 'White Australia' Ideals must
be defended at all costs as a cardinal
principle of Australian political belief. Japan civilization differs radically from that of Australia, whic_
Is compelled to see no mixing of races
ln her territory.
Naval Problem a Dual One
"While it Is true, as Mr. Churchill
said, that the naval forces could be
concentrated under a United Command on tho chief features of operation, It should not be forgotten thac
the empire's naval problem is a dual
one. Nat only should tho Imperial
power be developed in relation to the
v.orld's problem, ln order that there
should be an imperial navy to fight
in any or every sea, when Imperial interests are threatened, but world-wide
preparations must be combined to
make it possible to concentrate forces
at any point wherever tho dominions
have the greatest menace. Australia
hopes that the Imperial licet will be
so developed and organized that this
country shall be in no way dependent
absolutely on treaty obligations vitta
any foreign power whatever.
"Tho Ilritish government Is anxious
for a conference of self governing dominions, including Canada r.nd South
Africa. The flrsi Australian fleet unit
is being completed, but to what poin'.
Is the Australian policy developing?
Mr. Churchill has departed from tha
agreement by which the imperial government undertook to send to the
Pacific a ship for every ship put into
commission by Australia. Mr. Church-
Ill has proclaimed that ships of an inferior calibre will do verr well for
the Pacific. Australia is entitled to
something more than tiiat statement
She is entitled to free and full discussion of imperial defence wit_
every unit of the empire."

ed in loading gravel at a pit, just.
recently opened on the power house (
road, when a large rock (which
was obscured from view by a
quantity of dirt and gravel) was
suddenly released from its bed in
the bank, and without a second s
warning came crashing Cown a
distance of six feet or more. The
fall was so sudden that no one had
a chance to get out of the way, and
as a result George Russel, one of
the workmen, had his leg pinned
between the wheel of the wagon
and the rock, with the result that
both the bones in his leg were
brokeu. His companions quickly
hurried to his aid, and it required
the united efforts of four men to
move the obstruction and relieve
the poor fellow, who by this time
was suffering excruitiating agony.
Medical aid was quickly summoned
and the young man was removed
to his home a short distance away.
The accident is all the more sad
when we consider the fact that the
unfortunate man had just started
work a little over a month ago,
after btinj idle for the greater part'
of the w'nter and spring. And
now with a wife and children dependent on him, and he incapaciated for work for the next four
montus at least, his lot is far from
being an enviable one, But we
trust that our Government out of
its usnal generous spirit will not
forget to compensate this unfortunate man, who through no fault of
his own, was suddenly deprived of
the means of sustenance for himself aud his family.
