This telegram containing the information that Kootenay may bo visited by at least some of the members
of the party ot business men which
is now touring Canada hus been received by H. H. Currlc, publicity
commissioner, who, supported by Hon
Martin Hurrell, R. F. ilreon, M. P
number ot provincial members of
parliament and numerous bonrds ol
trade in Kootenay and southern Alberta, has been working strenuously
for sonie weeks In un endeavor to
prevail upon the leaders of tbe party
to place southern British Columhlu
upon the itinerary. The telegram Is
dated from Georgetown, Ont.
Directly definite news as to when
the business men will reach Nelson
has been received arrangements will
be made for tbeir entertainment.
The favorable wire was in reply tu
several telegrams sent by Mr. Currle
to Leonard Palmer, head of the party, addressed so that tbey would
meet at vurious points en route trom
St. John, N. B., west. To Mr. rainier at Ht. John the following outline
of "Kootenay's attractions" to the
investor was sent by Mr. Currle.
"City of Nelson and Kootenay extend most cordial invitation to your
party to use the Crow's Nest Pass
route wben leaving this province,
without disturbing the itinerary east
ol calgnry, only 12 hours abstracted
trom main lint itinerary will give
you two days ol fresh Bights among
exquisite lakes, vast waterpowers,
charming Iruit regions and almost all
metalliferous mining of province, and
land you at Lethbrldge by route
which will shortly he main Hue, and
which has present population of
60,000. Seconded by nil the sister
towns ond districts, we had asked Interior department to transmit Kootenays invitation to you nud arrange
inclusion In itinerary, but department
today advises us to communicate
with you directly, liy extending first
stop at Calgary, and taking Laggan
on way to coast, you cnn devote return trip to developed interior. Canadian Pacltlc railway will always
meet your wishes. ' Mny Nelson hope
to entertain your party In flower
land ol mountains."
And to Mr. Palmer at Toronto, Mr.
Currle directed this further appeal to
the party to place Kootenay on Its
"Ab per your wire ol June lsth to
St. John and other invitations you
have received from Kootenay cities.
we hope you will permit nothing to
debar you two-days scenic trip
through glorious Kootenay by Crows
Nest Pass line, which will require but
12 hours Irom Banff and Laggan.
This route has one-sixth ot population ot province, seven-eighth ol
province's metalliferous mining, one-
third of total lumber cut, conl sup
ply of prairie, both irrigated and
non Irrigated fruit belts, enormous
waterpowers, exquisite lakes and majestic ranges. Short route now being
constructed to the coast will still
further open up this territory, which
ls a magnificent field for investment.
We trust that you will decide to use
your time'In thia province to greater
advantage than flrst arranged, and
that you will gratify Nelson and oth-
Kootenay cities by passing
through their territory. Nelson will
be delighted to tender banquet.
Please rush answer, our expense."

Origion of Radium
Of the various problems raised by
lho discovery of radium and Its associates, all but two have now been
solved, said Prof, Frederick Soddy In
his recent discourse at the Royal Institution. The two remaining put*
zles are tho origin, and the ultimate
disintegration products of uranium
and thorium. These two primary
radio-active elements are the only
ones changing slowly onough to account for the maintenance of radium
In tho earth, and the only ones with
specific gravities higher than that, of
radium. As il is highly improbable
that radium is the result of a union
of two or .more elements, It follows
that the physicist must look to uranium or thorjum as Its source.
In order to lest the percentage of
radium, Prof. Soddy nine years ago*

Arsenic has perhaps been more frequently used thnn other poison for
criminal purposes. It has been
proved identical with the "wonderful elixir" of the 17th century, when
secret poisoning became so frequent
in Italy. Then young widows were
abundant iu Home, nnd most of the
unhappy n'urrloges were speedily dissolved by the death of the-husband.
A secret society of young matrons was
discovered which met at the house
of La Spara, a reputed witch, who
supplied thom with a slow, tasteless
colorless poison, carefully calculated
io kill a husband iu just the time that
suited the purchaser, Ln Spara and
thirteen of her companions were
hanged, a large number of culprits
were whipped half naked through thc
streets of Rome while others of the
highest rank escaped with heavy
tines and banishment.

In;: away, another doctor luul a call
from the platform, and be walked
out rather ostentatiously. Some of
the people who kuew the arrangement laughed or snickered and the
speaker gol 11 lie said: "Don'l

Sir  William     Ramsay     Thinks    Coal
Miner j   May   Soon   be   Unnecessary
Sir William Hamsay, ibe eminent
BCleiitlst, in a speed) at the opening
of the International Smoke Abatement
Exhibition at Hie Agricultural Hall,
made the starUlug prediction that we
might, be able iu 1 lie future to do
without eoal miners.
Explaining how, he pointed out that,
salt, was mined by introducing water
down the shafts of the salt mines,
the waler being pumped back in the
shape of brltm and tho salt recovered by evaporation. He had carefully
considered the coal industry from this
standpoint, and had seriously come
to the conclusion thnt no coal need
bo burnt for ordinary purposes. The
Ideal state of things would be to have
the retorts In tho bowels of the earth.
What was to hinder the coal being
left where it was? ho asked.
The gas might be obtained by passing down tho boring, the necessary
air to produce partial combustion- in
this way water-gas, which was a mixture i f carbonic oxide aud hydogen,
could be produced. This would rlae
to the surface of its own accord and
GOUld then be employed for every purpose, for which coal gas Is used. Sir
William Hamsny added that electricity might be distributed where it was
needed at. such very small cost that
It could he UB3d for heating. At
present It wns expensive but there
was iio reason why in future it should
not cost oue-huudred|h part or a penny per unit ,
Later, as ono of the guests of the
Institute ot Printers und Kindred
Trades at their annual dinner. Sir
William made the highly interesting
statement that ho had beer. In communication with a certain colliery
proprietor, who had decided to give
hliu an opportunity of making the experiment he had suggested. The experiment would be on a small scale;
but, it it proved successful, it would
bo large enough to light a candle
which, in tho words of Bishop Ridley
would not be put out in our time.

Siamese Elephants
31am Is pre-eminently the land o*
animals and not n few of those which
pass and repass In the course of the
day's wor*. keep the new arrival waiting to hear a steam calliope inform
the countryside that a circus is io
town. There goes the sacred Indian
buffalo! But this, time he and hia
brother are only going under the
charge ci' two small boys, down Into
the rice paddy behind the temple to
plough. Stripped of all his gay trappings, the elephant, no longer a mere
show, goes peacefully, patiently and
intelligently about hia Herculean
tasks. Two of these splendid animals carried or dragged alt the heavy
timber for the boy's school which
was recently erected at Nan.
The whole elephant tribe is looked
upon with great veneration by the
Siamese, The elephant Is tho symbolic animal of the country, and
though Ills ponderous strength Is
daily used In hia master's service,
he is man'*; co-laborer, not bis beast
of burden. J.ucky is that elephant
which Is born a:i albino; for he shall
be all hla days a sacred white elephant, scrubbed aud fattened and
pampered, and he shall do no work at
all. Even the baby that is a little
tighter grey than his relatives may
attain to greatness. Only a few
months ago one m* these baby elephants that was only light grey in
color, not a true albino, waa shipped
with great ceremony from Laos to
the Kitg at Bangkok- Animals
large and f-mall abound In the jungles and along the waterways. No
trip need be taken without a plentiful supply of game, for "fan" deer,
quail, queen pigeons and peafowl may
be had for the table at the expense
of a little patience and a good
straight shot.-'-Christian Herald.

Written   Expressly   for   Dry-Farming
by  Miss Sarah  P.  Detweiler,  D.O.,
Lethbrldge, Alberta.
The old adage "an ounce of prevention Is worth a pound of euro" is
verified on the subject of health. Two
of the moat inexpensive means to be
used toward this end are fresh air
and proper digestion.
Residents or the country sometimes
get the idea lhat because their work
frequently takes tv.em out doors for
a few moment's at a time, they do
not require to attend to tbe ventilation of the house, but tills Is not Hie
case- Never neglect lo not a good
circulation: of fresh air through tho
rooms you live In three or four times
a day, and by all means have the
sleeping rooms well ventilated—windows wide open lu the summer and
always part way open fn cold weather. Those Individ un la who are
afraid of fresh air in their sleeping
rooms deprive themselves of the very
ilrst principle of health. Have fresh
air, but avoid draughts, if you have
two windows, have both open; if but
ono window, open it and leave the
door ajar, being ci refut to place the
bed where there will be no draught.
But should you be so situated that you
cannot leave tho door open, then
open the window from both top and
bottom, as this will assure a better
circulation or air. ,A hundred times
rather spend a little more on fuel if
necessary than have doctor bills to
pay. You should consider it a misdemeanor for any of your family to
•sleep iu a tightly closed room.
If your house haa a verandah, make
a living room out ot it for the summer; If no verandah, put down a
wooden floor or a few old rugs ou the
ground at a convenient and shady
place outside the houso aud practically live there. You can do your
sewing, mending, washing, preparing
of vegetables, and even washing of
dishes there. It. may require a few-
more steps to carry things out, but
it will also save much of clearing up
in the house, and the improvement iu
health will repay you 20-fold.
But in this out-door living room you
must have a screen fitted over a
frame which will rest on a table or
other flat surface under which you
can place any vegetables, fruits, etc,
that you may wish to have sot for a
time, to prevent files from lighting
on the same. Shun the Jy as you
would your worst enemy, as tt la a
disease carrier. I wish to mention
here that i. is the strictest economy
to get screens for your doors and
windows, so you will be able lo keep
your house free from flies.
Never allow water to be poured
near this out-door living room, or any
refuse to be thrown around, as these
things may become productive of a
germbreeding media.
What is even much better than open
windows for the sleeping room Is to
enclose the verandah with a canvas
and move your bed out thero; or put
a floor on a dry pnrt. of your lawn
and pitch a tent ao It. can be opened
for ventilation. You will have people say that they know of those who
who r'leep In closed rooms and are
perfectly well. This may possibly
bj true of individuals with strong
const.' ttlons, but for one of these
we could point to scores who are ailing aud who could recover their
health by the fresh air treatment.
Another factor in the cause of disease in no small number or cases is
rapid eating. Digestive trouble of various kinds are very prevalent tn this
age. Rush is one of the sins against
nature on this American continent.
It is not alone found in business, but
7.» por cent of lhe people carry it to
the table. Thoy do not take time to
properly masticate tho food they eat.
They come to the table tired, eat
theli* food hurriedly without masticating It at; they should, and the result
la sooner or later tsdlgestion. followed by various other maladies. The
food taken Is often blamed when U
Is due to the way It Is eaten anJ
not to the food itself.
It is Infinitely more difficult to regain health after it has become undermined than it would be to maintain
a state of health by obeying the laws
of health*
Your stomach will take considerable
abuse without protest; In fact it. is
often In a very unhealthy condition
before it rebels and Its owner becomes
aware of the trouble he or she has
brought upon himself or herself.
In eating too hurriedly you are apt
to overeat, inasmuch as the hunger
Is not appeased aa it is when the
food eaten ls properly mnBticated, in
which case It Is ntore easily and more
perfectly digested, thus furnishing
nnre nourishment for the body.

The Sultan's  Palace
The Moorish palace of Sultan Abu
Yakub  Ytissuf at Seville—known today  as tho  "Alcazar"—contains one
of the most elaborate practical Jokes
extant.   When it a gay mood some
Important merchant or notable of Seville r/ould receive a pressing Invito*
Hon summoning him to the presence.
Iu a fever of   delighted   expectancy .
the flattered guest   would   don   his
whitest raiment and hie him to the I
palace.     There he would  be   ceremoniously conducted to the gardens
and directed up    the    long   avenue.
Half way up it he would Inevitably
tread upon a moving flagstone resting upon a spring, aud Immediately
fine jets of water would gusli out of

shrubbery and   drench   him.   Amid

i And thus it is that population has
■ • j been and still is, the great want of
Hritlsh   Columbia.
But all these difficult problems were
(need by Mr. McBride with that ei-
traordlmary courage which is one of
his greatest qualities. He ignored
the banks nnd tha financier., went
straight on with his work, and «oon
the people ol British Columbia realized that at last there waa at tbe
bead of the government a man native
to the soil, knowing nil Its conditions, nnd bringing to Its problems
eihaustless energy and proud local
energy and proud local patriotism.
Progress     began     to     be      made
not   slowly,      but      rapidly,    until
the safety and advancement   of   the
province were bound up in the leader
•hip    of    McBride.     And   thu* there
'; ! cam.   to   puss   in British   Columbia
! ', ! what has happened in other countries
' • j and   times—that    all  the  pulitiCB of
I the   country   were   hound   up In the
; nne single powerful and popular per
anna) ity.
A position like this mny he quick-
J ly won and ns quickly Imt. Uut
i that lias not been the eiperlence ol
Mr McBrlde. There have heen three
| general elections since he became
prime minister for the llrsi. time and
each succeeding election has imly In-
creased his power.
British Columbia has only one
! house ol legislature; it consists of lit
',', I members, fn the last legislature the
three members ol the opposition hnve
been reduced tn two; the supporters
of the prime minister and of bis pol
icy thus number 41) out of the entire
membership of tu.
This extraordinary dominance hns
not heen won by mere force of character; nn Instinctive adroitness, tact
and gnnd nenne Imve been among the
contributory    causes.     Take  lor ln-
naturally warm Irish heart and tbe
shrewdness of a keen politician who
turned what might have beon a campaign against to one in favor of him
self and his policy.
Finally, a few statistics to show
what progress British Columbia has
made in the ten years of Mr. Mc-
Bride's rule:
Tbe net revenue has grown trom
12,044,000 ln 1902-3 to .10,500,000 in
1910-11. Whereas the province was
heavily ln debt in 1903, the public
accounts showed at the close of the
last fiscal year a balance of 11,500,00
over all liabilities, and by resBon of
mated expenditures for the present
been the invariable result, the estimated expenditdres for the present
fiscal year are more than (10,000,000
10 years more than 113 per cent and
is now 400,000.
The figures are the must eloquent
testimony to a wise und popular rule
Mr. McBrlde has often beob asked to
transfer his energies, his gifts and
hie magnetism to Ottawa; he could
have had a cabinet office in the new
Conservative government; but he tine
preferred to remain in his native
province until his work there has
been done.

he can buy It at once, otherwise, he
may forget It, or, having had time to

him n vecilict lor that amount, and
the owner ol the dog appealed to the

continued the verdict, aud says lu

for all damages caused by such dogs,
and that the owners keep them at

It    is   the mother   ot   n household
whose   life   is    chiefly  threatened  hy
(monotony.   She   stays at home,   the
: la always Ln    the house    seeing the
' same tilings, hearing tbe same voices,
. doing the same    work day after day
with     endless    regularity.   Tn-     demands    upon    her time and strength
aud  love and patience are  increasing
and the wonder  is  that she does not
break down more frequently  thnn is
actully    the    ease.   The    fact  ix-curs
too    often,    and   in    such   cases   an
ounce    of   prevention is worth many

An easy way to keep an oil lamp
from smoking Is to     saturate     the
wicks with strong vinegar and allow

Make your rural bouse beautiful
1 l-ay out spacious grounds around tne
farm bouse, plant shade trees, lay
gravel roads and plant flowers!
Don't lay up all your net earnings
for the beni oeirs and the liwyers,
but spend most of it in beautifing
your home. The farmer wbo always
shuts bis eyes to the aesthetic lea-
tures of his lite and screws himself
down to the task ot making money,
, loses a large portion, and the big-
Igest portion too, of his existance.
! Hla home should be an attraction to
himself to bis wife and above all, to
'his children. Unpleasant homes in
| too mauy Instances drive tbe sods of
farmers to the towns, to excitement
und dissipation, and to wreck. Such
sons do not generally leave pleasant
and beautiful homes.
There are hundreds of persons in
this city who cannot draw a dozen
full inspirations of the lungs without fainting. liy a full inspiration Ls
meant just as much as the lungs can
possibly bold, and if anyone sup-
pases it is easy to make ten or
twelve strong inspirations he should
make the effort before saying two
much. Men who are accustomed to
bend over ft desk all bay long rarely
more tban half llll their lungs at one
time, and to them one deep breath is
a tonic, a dozen stimulate so strongly aa to make them dmy or even
cause fainting. Tbe strain on the
lungs   is   terrific,    and  a collapse La
likely to occur.

In    France,    where   tbey    have the
best    roads    in   the world, the highways are divided into several elasMl
hut all of them are supervised by the
national    government!    which   maintains a bureau of roads and bridgws,
and  support  a school  for  the education   of the engineers  and  inspectors
who     are    employed   in the bureau.
This   method   of building aud maintaining  roads in France  was started
by  the  Ilrst   Napoleon,   who    appears
to    have  beeu  the earliest   Kuropeau
states-man who clearly  saw  tbe economic   advantage of proper highways,
nnd    who at  the same time hnd the
power to carry out  what  he  wished.
The   effect    ot    these   good  roads In
France    has   been     wonderful.   They
have brought all the various parts of
the    country    nearer   together;   they
have made country life less lonesome
and    they   have   reduced tbe cost of
transportation of country  produce to
a    minumun.   France     is    the    only
country   in   Europe   where the agri
cultural   classes are  not  dissatisfied,
ind where they do not feel that they
j have a harder  time  than  those  who
j labor In other nelds.
■    Civilized nations have good roads—
i savage and unenlightened countries do
' not.   The   highways   ot travel are a
j guaee of the progress a people have
j made from barbarism to civilization.
I    How are your roads?
i   The price at which a farm will sell
for  is  regulated  by   ita nearness to
market, and tbe quality ot its neigh.
borhood roads.   To increase the selling price of your farm, work for good
Good roads will benefit the farmer
more tban he dreams of.
On an average, the farm products
of this country must be hauled by
wagon to market. There is more
room far saving in th s wagon haul
than ln a railroad haul of one thousand miles. The railroads of the
country charge only eights-tenths of
a cent for hauling a ton a mile.

nt every meeting if possible, and aB

Inent part in nil we do, let ue be
punctual both in opening and closing
our meetings. It means a great deal
to our meetings to bave everyone
there on time. When a subject Is
btought up (or discussion, or suges-
Uons naked lor, be prompt in giving
your Ideas. Let us all be ready and
II we know a good thing, be willing
to pass it along; our meetings must

! cess II we allow them to do bo.
| What broader Held could we have
(or our work than all things that
] pertain to the home. When we realize what "everything that pertains to
the home means" what possibilities
there are for our institute work,
i Our hand book says "The object
] of this organization Bhall be the dissemination of knowledge relating to
domestic economy," including houee-
jholil architecture, with attention to
i home sanitation, and a better under-
i Ktamling of the economic and hygenic
vnlue of foods, clothing and fuel, and
a more scientific love and training of
children with a view ot rnislng the
general standard and morals ol the
people. The foundation is laid In the
home and the institute is for making
women efficient In the hnme. It Is
the Hweet apirit of helpfulness, couple,! with a willingness to lenrn that
Is going to make an institute u suc-
chhs and a power for good.

How    many   of   ua know so much
thnt we ran learn no more.
Whatever    plans we mny have followed, some one may have * better
one and we should he ready to accept suggestions and look for better
and carrier wny of doing our work
Then tbe Institute becomes a benefit
to us not only (or tbe knowledge
j gained but from a social standpoint,
11 think perhaps some ot us are benefited aa much in this way as in any
j otber.
; Then it Ib the only meeting in the
j community that enables us to meet
; on common ground and become well
We become narrow minded wben we
live to ourselves.
| We are social beings, and, it is ot
greatest benefit that as neighbors we
should meet occasionally and exchange thoughts and ideas. In this
way, we may each help the other,
and thus make the most and best ol
Again our meetings give a chance
to develope our capabilities of taking part In the discussion. We gain
confidence and in time may reach the
point where we will not be afraid of
our own voices aa we are now.
The Institute stands tor our home
and country—the true greatness of
national life lives in the home.
Home life has demands, housekeep
ing various aspects and methods.
While It is equally true thnt no wo
man hns a monopnly on all the good
things, hy meeting together we exchange ideas and assist each other a-
long lines relating tn, and not away
Irom, the home.
If the Institute movements even degenerates so far, as to tnke the woman away from her home, nnd make
her less worthy of womanhood, It
ought tn be discontinued. On the
other hand, however we find that It
improves the home nnd community,
hrenking dnwn Jealousies, uniting
home nnd country In a common
cause, anil spreading useful Information.
Whnt about criticism, well no one
nenl care about Ireing criticised, for
the one that criticism and tnlk the
iiioHt are the empty-heads. Perhaps
Ion, we ran suggest better things
without giving offense. There Is bne
thing that each should guard agnlnst
that Is hosslness. Ynu know what 1

What Ancient Knew About Eclipses
The ancients found out how to pre
diet eclipses of the moon, but those j
of ihe sun baffled them. They observed tho lunar cycle of eighteen Julian years eleven days, iu which the
moon returns to nlmofil the same position iu tlic heavens, but they could
not apply this to isolar eclipses, although the period answers for both.
Tho reason of lha failure was that,
although solar eclipses recur in a llxed
order within the cycle, they are not
visible uguln ut the same part of the
earth's surface, Eclipses or tho moon
are universally visible.

A Puzzle for the Expert
A   case  concerning  motor  driving
; was on hand, when the chauffer de-
clared that when driving forty mile
1 an hour he could if necessary pull up
in ten or twelve feet.
,    An expert was the next, occupant
of the chair.      Said his lordship:
If a motcr car were travelling at
forty miles an hour, and the brakes
' could be put on In such a manner as
to stop It within ten or twelve feet.
i where would the driver go?
Depends very much on ihe suit of
life he'd been living, said    the    ex-
! port—Montreal Star.

to Pittsburg. Hubby was trying to

Four or five men held up their hands
' doubtfully. Then Mr. Coleman took
I a pear.Ut from his pocket, shelled it,
i exposing the kernel which nobody had
j ever seen.     Then he ate the kernel.

Ami that
was exactly what Mr. Stead meant.
He insisted that by making his mind
passive those at a distance, whether
in this world or some other, would
move it for him, would mako it transcribe ou pnper tiicir thoughts, their
messages. Ami chief among these
persons who sent message from beyond the great divide was ".luiiH."
These messages of the "automatic
liHud" caused Mr. Htpad to aim ounce
witli absolute conviction thai the dead
return. Vor him, it wus a "truth
established, a problem which is solved, a subject on which doubt is
hence forth impossible."
Ho nlso states that soon alter she
slipped out of lier body he began to
develop various psychic accomplishments, among them automatic writing, and then "I placed my hand at
the disposal of Miss Ames, aud she
has used it as her own ever since."
This wus their favorite mode of Uie
interchange of thoughts, though they
used both clairvoyance aud clalr-
audieiifft also, and Mr. Stead affirmed
that she "made good" in them all,
although he subjected lier to every
known test; he did not, however, accord her his unqualified approval or
belief in her identity lill she gave
hi in convincing proof hy bolh "external and internal evidence."
One of the letters from Julia contained the following sentences: "The
world is full nf spirits longing to
speak to those from whom they have
been parted. It la a strange spectacle. On your side, souls full of the
anguish of bereavement; on this side;
souls full of sadness because they
cannot communicate with those whom
they love.
; "Many nn earth are racjeed with
agony because they imagine their
loved ones arc lost-in hell, while in
reality they ave within the all-embracing arms of the love of God. Home-
thing should be done to enable the
sorrowing ones on earth to know that
their so-called dead live nearer than
ever before. It would dry many a.
tear and ease many » sorrow. Whut
we need is a bureau of communication . . , It is the most important
tiling there is to do . . . and you
can count on the eager co-operation
of all on this side."
It waa this message from Julia that
caused Mr. Stead to open his famous
"postoffice for spirits" in London in
11)09, where he communicated with
persons in the other world.

Fishes That  Dance.
There ara.somn ririiiu dnlnca, a-bout
litis time of the year ut the bottom
of the sea, according to a writer in
the "Field," particularly among tho
American how-fin or mudfish. When
warm weather sets in the bow-fin
leaves its winter quarters and begins to make good the loss of flesh
incurred in the winter; hut while
lhe female retains her dull color the
male assumes brilliant hues, obviously
intended to attract the female. The
tins become a bright, green, the bronze
of the back and sides is brightened
up, and vurious other color decorations are assumed. Contrary to the
itfage of polite society, it is the female who, in the bow*fli) community,
often seeks out the male.
In April both resort to a quiet place
well grown with water-stumps, afford-
ing shelter for nests, tho male constructing the nest by working mainly
at. night.
More curious facts regarding tlsh
were given hy Mr. V. .Martin Duncan
before the Royal Society of Arts, Lui-
don, recently. He showed a remark-1
ahle series of cinematograph films representing the movements of nil kinds
of fish. There were conger-eels who
dance with wonderfully regular ni'.ve-
ments, and rays who swished about
uud seemed to be winking at the
audience every time they opened their
mouths. Perhaps the mo t amusing
picture wus that of scallops, When a
scallop wants to move it opens its
shell as wide as possible, swalh.ws a
great mouthful of water—a Bcallop is
ull month—daps its shell together
again, expelling the water, und so
move forward with a little hop, its
progress being something like that of
a jumping bean.
