Made a Difference
Uncle Henry Altmnn had a two-year
old colt of which he wna very proud.
Many were the disputes ho had with
his nolghbors over tho weight of tho
animal, and he considered that lt was
jealousy that caused many of them
who were regarded as experts to put
the weight at a figure a few hundred
pounds below tho weight on which he
had set his heart.
One day he sent him to town with
tfte boys to have him weighed. A
few days later a neighbor came along
and said to htm:
Woll, Uncle Henry, did the colt
weigh as much ns you expected?
He might have been a trifle shy,
satd tho old man, but I can explain
that. It was all on account of a mistake by the boys. I told them to
bave htm weighed on a scale they
weigh coal on to sell, and they bud
him weighed on the scalc3 of a fellow
wbo buys hay.

Rulers of Austria and Turkey Appeal
for  His   Friendly   Intervention
From Berlin, the German emperor hns apparently been Intrusted
hy tht* Austrian emperor, his ally, and
by the sultan, his friend, with a difficult double task, first of Interna*
lug in the Austro-Serviiui difficulty,
and second, of obtaining from Bulgaria moro moderate peace terms.
Whether lhe kaiser will bo successful In both cases te doubtful, but there
are signs that ho bas sot to work with
will, in tho ilrst lustance, the kaiser
will. In ho first Instance, ttio kaiser
used all his personal Influence to obtain a promise from tbo Russian government that Servia could not count
on Russian support for her demands,
regarding Albania ami tho Adriatic,
and Russia lias now given tills promise, as is Indicated In a semi-official
telegram to the Cologne Gazette;
Russian support of Servian policy
stops whero the Servian territorial
claim on Alhr.nl hegins, sayfl thi3
journal. Russia Is not likely to allow tho partition of Albania. We have
every reason to be sure of that.
The other task which the kaiser has
been asked to undertake is duo to an
autograph letter from the sultan, pre*
sen ted by tho Turkish ambassador,
The sultan reminds tho kaiser of old
German-Turkish friendship, and expresses the hope that his majesty'*.
Influence In Sofia nnd his friendly relationship with King Ferdinand will
enable him to obtain reasonable peace
terms for Turkey, especially terms
safeguarding Turkey's dignity as a
sovereign power. It ls doubtful
whoiher the kaiser wtll he able *o
tako tbe Initiative of such a person.il
Btep, as since the beginning of the
war the question has been watched
equally by all the great powers. On
tho other hand, it Is obvlojas that any
such step as Is demanded by the sultan would be considered In Sofia as
unfriendly meddling.

On arriving at a cross-road, Herr

While he was being effusively thanked by "tho young woman, a well-dressed Btranger emerged from behind a

Crew of French Submarine Has Exciting Experience
An unusual and exciting accident happened during torpedo firing
practice by the submarine Fresnel.
Tbo torpedo was fired, but owing to
tho device which controls the direct-
Ion of the projectile becoming blocked, lt took a circular course round and
round the aubmarino at a speed ot
thirty knots Instead of a straight
course out to aca.
. The circle ft desc.'ibed gradually became smaller and smaller, and there
was Immediate danger of the vessel
being struck. A serious accident was
only averted hy the prompt action of
the commander, who kept the vessel
turning round in the same direction
as the torpedo, so that when the projectile struck the submnvlno It was
spent and tlio only effect thn crew
experienced waa a slight shaking.

Leaves Berlin for Remote Corner of
Europe to Honor Austrian
At Baden, In tho presence of
the kaiser, the wedding of Princess
Leontlno Furstenberg, daughter of
Prince Max Rgon Furstenberg, the emperor's most Intimate friend, with
Prince Hugo Viuzenz zu Wiudisch-
Qraets. took place at Dunauescbiugen,
in Baden, where Prince Furstenberg
has his family seat.
The fact that tbe emperor consented
to leave Berlin for this remote corner
of southern Germany in timo of acute
international crisis shows to what extent Prlnco Furstenberg enjoys the
kaiser's friendship and affection.
Never, Indeed, lias any one, save
members of the Imperial family, and
very fow of these, been so close to thi
Gorman sovereign as Prince Fur-ate*.*

were the latter a true-born German
and not an Austrian, as is the ease, hu
would stand a good chance of becoming imperial chancellor one day.
Tho marriage celebration was
charming and gorgeous. The municipality had been at pains to decorate
the tiny city, which lies In the midst
of the Swablan mountains, and there
woro arches ol triumph in every street,
Thc wedding gave occasion to great
demonstrations of loyalty on the part
of tho villagers to the Furstenberg
The emperor arrived' In Donauesc.i-
ingen early In the morning, and Immediately after his arrival In the old
family castle tiie marriage ceremony
was performed in the magnificent ancestors' hall by tho burgomaster oil
Donaueschtngen, a simple villager,
who scorned extremely bashful in the
presence of the kaiser and some I.u
German and Austrian princes.
A long procession of motorcars then
took the wholo company to the small
village church, where tho religious
marriage was celebrated. After the
return of the married couple to the
castle, all the Donaueschlngon peasants wero allowed to congratulate
prince and princess zu Wlndlsch-
Graetz, and wero authorized to express
any wish they could think of.
The kaiser has given princess zu-
Wlmllscb-Graet'/. somo beautiful jov-
els as a wedding present, and will give
her consort a commission "a la suite,"

During tho last ten years they have

There is little fluctuation in the supply, which Is controlled by a pearl-

thrown for a second time on the market ls not enough sufficient to mako
much difference.
The consequence I.i that many peoplo are buying pearls just ns they

Special Recommedations for the Preservation of the
Timbers of Canada.
British Columbia lumbermen confidently expect tbat the provincial
government will lend a favorable ear
to their request that the personnel of
tbe forestry board be so enlarged aa
to Include two practical lumbermen-
one from the coast and one from tbe
Interior. The new members will act
—If appointed—in an advisory capacity only. It goes without eaying that
the expert knowledge ot mon experienced in the various phases ot the
lumber industry throughout the province meet necessarily prove of great
value to the board, and it iB a wonder that the proposed change was not
thought ot before.

tbe once optimistic settlers, \-*hcri
they round it difficult to market what

that tliey denounce tbo government

am aireauy made it plain tbat the
conservation and protection ol tbe
Umber of Drltith Columbia will be
continued during 1913 on an even
more extensive and enlightened plan
than in the past. Tbe number of Are
ranger* will be increased by at least
one-third and attention, will be given
not only to the protection of mature
timber, but also to tbe sale guarding
ol young and second growth forest*.
There ara several big areae in the
province which will provide for furure
generations resources upon which
they will be able to draw. Thee* a-
rea* are In tbe majority ol cases not
available lor agricultural purposes
but they will represent a valuable asset In the future, and ot course, It is
• duty ol the government to wisely
conserve resource* not only tor pre-

Special ateentlon will be given to
the protection against Ore of timbered watersheds in irrigated districts,

Valley Railway and other lines in
the irrigated districts of ths Interior
haa necessitated the augmentation of

the government to direct settlers to
districts in which they con produce
profitable crops, and where It ls possible to build up a community ol
homes where the advantages ol
achools, churches nnd social Intercourse can be obtained, Noglect ol
these considerations will necessarily

I Archinard'S wife heard his shrieks
as ho fell. She rushed into the mob
of mutineers aud flew at lho ringleader. A prisoner tried to help her
to seize Drahounet, but tho man, who
was a giant iu stature and In strength,
caught Mme. Arcblnard by the balr,

The assistant, chief warder, Bonnet,
who had been in another part of tho
prison, hurried up with other warders
nnd a pitched bailie began in tho corridors of the prison.
Drahonnet bad found n long-handled
hatchet wiih which he did terrible
damage, and a few minutes after the
death of his chief, Bonnet waa killed
by n crushing stroke of the ringleader's axe Whiaih cleft his skull In
The fight had taken place on the
ground floor of the prison. The
noise was heard outside, and a lieutenant of Colonial Infantry, Lieutenant Pernin, who happened to be passing, rushed In to give assistance to tlio
warders. He received two knife

released, and outnumbering their jailors, they expelled them and barricaded themselves in tho prison.
An Immense crowd of civilians, police, gendarmes and soldiers surrounded the prison. Tho representative of
Uie government and the commissioner
of police took command, and after
three hours' seige the outer doors
wero forced.
The ground floor corridors wore
dark and silent. The mutineers had
cut on the electric light supply.
An acetylene lamp was brought and
the white walls were seen to be dripping with blood. There was not a
mutineer In sight, and in the middle
of tho corridor lay the bodies of tho
chief warder, his wife and his assistant. Mme, Archlnard'a head had
rolled down tho corridor, and was

With every precaution the soldiers
and gendarmes and police, with revolvers In their hands, marched up the

struggle. i
A volley cowed the mutineers. One
of them, a sailor named Maguaud, was
found dead in a cell. Behind him
tbo dead body of Drahonnet, the ringleader, hung from a nail ln the ceiling.
The victims, dead and wounded,

Professor Simon N. Patten Finds That
Americans Don't Want Babies So Much as
Automobiles When They Gain Prosperity
UIE 'race-suicide line begins now lit
$iooo a yenr.
Hut tt appears to he going still
iower, and with the advance of education he
would he a hold philosopher who would ven-
ture to suy where it is likely to stop.
One of lhis country's best-known authorities, Dr. Simon N* Patten, professor of economics in the Wharton School of thc University of Pennsylvania* draws that significant
inference, after reviewing the -carious considerations hearing on thc gradual disappearance of the child from western civilization,
and more especially from the civilization of
the United States,
The average young married pair these
days who believe they are ou the highroad to
prosperity take il wilh. a laugh in an atttomo-
bile, instead of taking il with a baby in a perambulator. Various observers have tried to
put the blame on oiie or the other of the iwo,
the arraignment of husbands as the guilty
pariks being the latest phase of the dispute.
Professor Patten will have none of thai; he
believes the modem recreancy to our ditty
toward the race is preily nearly equally shared
hy both sexes; and hefiuds that all the people
together are in a sort of national conspiracy
to have as few children as possible, and
becoming fewer.

"flore the barrier against the child-call It tha
race-suicide line, if you will—begins to go up at tho
family budget disposing of $1000 a year. Tho distinction remains still a. matter of classes, although that
may not ultimately be the ease.
"That suoh a barrier was rising, ami In selected
divisions of the population, became apparent nud dln-
qutetlng until It called for f.ome floflnlto formulation
of  its  limits  aud   Its  extent.    Investigator.1:  realised
(lis! ihey must have some way tn separate tlio so-
called higher-'from liio so-called lower classes, The
statistics of individuals wbo had enjoyed a college
education appeared to nfford a go-id guide. The first
'lass In which ii. niiowed In college statistics wuh that"
of the girls; when they married, they did not havo
children In proportion to their numbers. But wit on
(he Inquiry was carried to college men, they in Ihelr
turn made no better showing thnn the women. Most
of iho statistics for collogo graduates showed no mora
than two to a family, nl though we must hear in mind
the fact that the^ierlod of possible parentage ts not
yet complete for many such couples,
"Tho nest stop lu the course of these Investigations
was In ask a number uf college women to sond the
statistics, each, of three among their friends who
were not college women. The outcome of this Inquiry
was evidence thai those other women, tn the same
class as Die college women, had the same limited
number of children; so it was not u college problem,
but a general one.
"Then, In England, Sidney Wolla sent oul n qties-
tlonatre, as It i.i termed, to two or throo thousand
peoplo with Iticomos between $2000 and $3000 ti year,
The answers were the same In England,
•There arc no complete statistics; but tbe fact ot
n. general falling off In the birth rate is certain, and
the details liavo come from thoso selected statistics,
'•'J'ho evidence Is enough to Bhow that tho decline
ht inking piece among people who are woll-to-do or
possessed of a competence. Wo have no evidence,
here or elsewhere, to show tbat the decline iH talcing
place among people with Incomes lower than $1000 a
year, uut I havo f.»oh statements Uiat the child labor
lawf, preventing tho employment of children under
ii yenrs of nge, arc limiting tlio number of children
horn lo the poor. 1 cannot confirm those statements;
but 1 do think that wherever Micro nro t'*ad schools,
the number of children horn is fewer. People who
want their ci-limes, to go to the high schools, to have
a s«od education generally, arc prone to set up a
standard and begin to say:
*' "j want iny children i«> he well educated, and I
can't afford to havo so many of ihem."
"But in ihls class ther*1 have been no questlonatres
and there are no statistics."
Professor Patten was asked whether tiie assumption of professor Nammack, that men are responsible
for our race suicide, ls correct.
"My opinion," be f-jolnfd, "is that the woman
thinks more and detei.nine.-i more about the family

Professor Nammack may have assumed some thing*.
