On onu occasion, Just before Uie

One Sunday morning lie preached
one of these, nnd the congregation
wore atari led and amused by hearing
lilm say: I remember being ln Florence lu the year 17911. There was
a slight Utter. "Says lhe Dean of St
Patrick's," added the preacher with
a smile. Another Sunday ho spoke
of tho "benoflcent rule of our sovereign, George IV," but with a slight
cough ho corrected this saying: "Victoria, by tho grace of God!"
A young minister, on ills way to
a camp meeting, stopped and bought
a couple of meat-pies, which bo put
ln his frock coat. A hungry dog, attracted by ilia scent, followed, making snaps at his tails. Arriving at
tbe gathering, he ascended the wagon,
and begau lus iliscour.se. A worthy
elder tugged his coat-tall at the end
ot bait an hour; then he tugged again,
just to remind him that he was exceeding his time.

He was a nervous man. Presently
to h.ls consternation, he discovered
ihnt he wai offering to glvo n clock

The preacher perspired, lost his

wholly to a somewhat generous responsibility. Ho comforted himself
with tlic idea of explaining matters

j been ihe dream of engineers and nav-
j igiilors. Tlio suggestion that such a

niiule in lho sixteenth century.
But although surveys woro made by
such countries us Spain, Holland and
America, with a view to cutting a
great canal, nothing wns dono to curry
out imy plan until Ferdinand do Lea-
sops, the lunn who constructed the
Suez Canal, convened in Paris ln
1879 an International congress to dlS'
cuss a plan for cutting through the
Isthmus of Panama, Do I.osseps'a
plnu was adopted, money got togothor
ond two years later a commencement
was made on the work. •
At nrst De Lcshcpd's Engineering
Commission to Panama estimated tbat
lho cost of tlio canal would be "-00,-
000,000, but tho great engineer reduced their llguioa to $120,000,000,
and announced lhat a tide-level canal
eould be completed for that sum.
Tlio history of Do I.esseps's Iraglo
[allure is well known, Year nttor

lions were borrowed until, at the ond
ot eight years, $350,000,000 had been
expended In endeavoring to carry out
his projeot—a sum three times aa

Then the crash came, and some
800,000 helders ot shares ln France
1-jst their money; and the story of
mismanagement, bribery of public
persons and journals in Franco, and
tho investigations, prosecutions, and
imprisonment ot Do i.esseps and his
son Charles and others, which damaged tho credit ot many eminent men,
shook the Republto to Its foundations.
Alter.thej* Panama scnndals practically nothing was done for len years
and then tho French company which
had been formed by De I.esseps sold
the canal to the United States for
$50,000,000. Then came another difficulty. Columbia, which is connected with Costa Hlca by the Isthmus,
refused to grant territorial rights to
the States with n view to the completion ot the canal. Thereupon occurred startling developments, for
Panama, anxious for tho coustructlon
of tho canal, revolted, declared Itself
nn Independent State, and was duly
recognized as such by the United
With little loss of time a treaty was
signed, by which tho Statu ot Panama
granted tlio uso ln perpetuity ot a
zone ten miles wide, with all rights
ot proprietorship to tho United
States. In consequence ot this the
State paid tho llttlo Republic $10,000,-
000 down nnd an annual subsidy of
$2,500,000, which si,i)sldy begins this
year. Altogether the canal has cost
the States $200,000,000, which includes
tho $50,000,000 paid to tho French
company, $10,000,000 to Panama and
$140,000,000 Tor construction.
Years ago, uncording to tho Hay-
Pauneefoto Trenty, it was agreed that
tho canal should bo neutral and open
to the coiuiuerco of tha world, but
the exclusive coutrol and management waa left to tho United States.
And it ls becauso America now de-
ninnda that nil vessels, other thnn
those belonging to the Stulcs, shall

canal that tlio indignation of European countries has been aroused.
How It Feels   to Fly
Dr. von Schrotter, a doctor practising In Vienna, describes the curious sensiiti uu. encountered by aviators when ln tho air.

on tbo nervotiH and physical organs,
the sudden chnngo ot tho pressure of
(lie atmosphere, and consequently of
its oxygen component, nffects tho circulation as Ihe gradual aBcent ln
mountain climbing does.
The powerful draught causes a keen
sensation of cold, which is the.ilrst
symptom complained nf, and deafness
is very soon experienced. The reduced
supply of oxygen caused hy tho rapid
movement end the fall of iho atmospheric pressure gives rise to vomiting nud visual hallucinations.
A dangerous and frequent symptom

in early there is plenty of amusement, however, and it is advit-mble
when convenient, to come in as early as possible.

A Notable_Suggestion
Lord Norton haa written to The
London Morning Poet to suggest
that the United Klncdom, the United States and Germany shall enter
Into what he calls "an international
arhltratlon convention," and that
tliey should agree to n reduction of
armaments and comhlne to enforce
peace throughout the world. Lord
Norton says that a heavy resronEi-
liility rests u»on the statesmen of
the three nations to find a way to
bring about such an achievement.
The suggestion ls timely. Lord Mor.
Icy ls shortly to visit Berlin, and,
although it is said that his visit is
purely n private one, there is hardly
any doubt connected with the rflorts
being put forward to bring about a
reapproachement between Great Britain and Germany. The very Interesting announcement is made that
that the British Government will no
longer interpose any oMectlon to Germany acquiring a foothold in the Persian liiilf. This satisfactory trend
of iilliiirH synchronizes with the effort
being made by Mr. William J. Bryan, United States Secretary ol State,
to promote an arhltrarlon convention.
It is unlikely that, in the event of
such a convention ta Lord Norton
proposes becoming an accomplished
fact, France would have any desire
to hold aloof. .The two gren*. obstacles in the way ot disarmament
are the antagonism between Germany
and France and a belief by the former that Great Britain does not wish
hcr to have "o place in the sun."
Great Britain can easily remove tbe
latter and it ought not to be impossible to overcome the former.—Victoria Colonist.

Don't Pay to Borrow
They used to say "Nobody loves a
fat man." Gee whiz—a fat man, be
he egostlcal, bombastic or stubborn
is a physical paradise compared to a
man who is too stingy to buy his
home town paper, says the Philadelphia Press. Just read this story
from the Mahahoy City Daily Record, and Bee what happens to
stingy man:
A man who was too economical to
take thiB paper sent his little boy to
borrow the copy taken hy hia neigh-
bor. In his haste the boy ran over
a $4 stand of bees, and in 10 minutes looked like a warty summer
squash. His cries reached his father, wbo ran to his assistance, and
failing to notice « barbed wire fence
ran into that, breaking it down, cutting a handful of flesh trom his anatomy and ruining n 84 pair of pants.
The old cow took advantage of the
gap in the fence and got into the
cornfield and killed herself eating
green corn. Hearing the racket, the
wife ran out, upset . a four-gallon
churn full of rich cream into a bask-
et of kittens, drowning the whole
flock. In tbe hurry she dropped a 87
set of false teeth. The baby, left
alone, crawled through the spilled
cream and into the parlor, ruining a
brand-new J20 carpet. During the
excitement the oldest daughter ran
away with the hired man, the dog
broke up 11 Betting hens, and the
calves got out and ate the tails off
four fine shirts.

Right to "Dush" Her Husband
If there is oue tiling more Limn another which giveB Eotno austona moments to 'the young married mun, il

his credit, and tti-n limit of such right, i
Everybody knows cases which have
come under their persoual notice
where the husband is a steady, hardworking fellow, and tho wife Is a
thoughtless, extravagant person,
tho inevitable consequence beiug
that the man is ruined,
Tho way to avoid thin is well worth
knowing, and i-j in addition very interesting and instinctive. First of
all, it is a mistake to suppose that a
husband is ..sponsible for his wife's
dobts. He is not, unless he has In
somo way allowed Iter to pledge his
credit. This he may do In several
ways. For Instance ho may tell ills
wife straight out to buy things on his
credit, and in that event ho i| Ihi bio
for all she does buy.
Again, If ho pays to? tilings she has
purchased on credit, it is regarded by
the courts an equivalent to a promise
to •the tradesmen to pay future hills
as well. Therefore, If a hu--.ba.id
pays ono bill which has been run up
without his knowledge or permission,
he should, without fall, forbid tiis wife
to do It again, and tell tho tradesmen

In some countries the fox is hunted

Prince Kdward Island you might, wipe

about 500 foxes on the various ranches in lhat province at. ihe present time
und Oharlea Dal ton, a member of the

year $250,000 had changed hands in
the fox business.
The success which has attended
some bleeders of foxes bus caused
very many others to go into the ranching business, and there are before Hie
Provincial Legislature, now hi session
eight or nine bills Incorporating fox
ranching companies. While the particular fox is sought to produce what
is called the black fox, it is really the

A Neat Coin Trick
Tske two plus, one Jn each hand,
aud pick up a coin with them by
pressing ono to each side of the edge.
When you have got it firmly held,
blow on the coin, and it will revolve
rapidly- A coin with a rough edge
—a 50 cent piece, quarter or dime—is
the best to use. A dime, because the
figures on it are smaller than on the
other pieces, can be made to spin so
fast that It looks as IE It were spherical lust-cad of flat. The trick Is
very easy to do, although It may
look hard. All that is needed is
steady hands.
