Day of Parcels_Post at hand
Express Companies will be hit hard —House
of Commons will be unanimous in support
of Hon. Mr. Pelletier's Scheme
OTTAWA, Jan. IS.-Hon, !.. P. I
Pelletler, postraastor.general, stated
to the house this afternoon that the I
government is now consider ng a.
parcels post system for the Dominion, antl that it. is quite possible
that something may he (ion., during
tlm present session.
The statement was maile during
the course of a discussion ot Hon.
Bodolphe Lemloux's resolution' calling for the establishment of a parcels poBt. Half-a-dozen members
from different ports of the Dominion
and renres-jnting both Bides of the
house, spoke in favor of the resolution, and tho postmaster.general nlso
gave it blB endorsement. He said
thut he was giving close attention to
the working out of the plan recently
adopted hy the United Status. He
felt the Canadian pest office should
he ahle to make a success of it, and
in this respect would place Canada
on a par with other nations.
He intimated that the system
would he by zones, not by y. flnt
rate, since with the great distances
in thia country, to have u flat rate
would bankrupt the department,
Members of the hoiipe who spoke In
favor of thc resolution were unanimous In believing that it would hive
a salutary effect in reducing express
rates in this country, which were
characterized as outrageous, Instances were given of thc hardship that
waB caused by thc excessive charges
of the companies, and it was felt
that even ln addition to the eoinpr.ti
tion of the parcels pest that there
should be a railroad revision of express rotes.
Tbe house rose at six o'clock. The
question was Introduced hy Qoi>, Ro-
dolphe Lemletix in the form of a
resolution declaring "that, in the opinion of this house the e.-t tulishme.it
of-a cheap parcels post s'scem would
be to the advantage of the consumers of Canada."
Mr. Lemieux quoted extensively
from the report which had been prepared hy Prof. McKenzle for the Toronto board of trade on the question
of the high cost of living, nnd which I
found in thu lack of a parcels post
system one influence tending to ia- j
crease the cost of living. Mr. Lem-1
leux expressed the opinion thnt tV.o ■
time was now ripe in Canada for
the government to adopt u policy of
parcels post and he did not feel thnt
there need be any hesitation or
shame ln adopt ng t'.e system recent* |
ly established by the United states.
As regards postal matters, he said
that the U. ;■■*. government had very
often followed the Canadian example
in postal mutters and two or threo
years ago had adopted entirely the
Canadian system nf postal savings
hanks. He believed that the main
opposition to such a system oame
from tho .small Btore keepers and
from tho express companies. He
pointed out the very great contrast
between the rnt:n on parcels from
England and thoaa mailed in Canada
"A parcel," he snld, "can bo sent
Irom London, England, to Vancouvor chenper than it can bo float from
London, Canada, to Vancouver,
That Is a fl nnplc of the general state
Ol affairs and until lhe U. S. recent
ly adopted Its system thc tmme extraordinary state of affairs wan
fonnd there,"
Ha1 reviewed tho Long agitation
which had taken place in tho U. S.
tending up to the recent Innovation
and Buld tlmt tho Influence or tie
farmers had been very marked In
Its favor Just us their Influonco hi
been marked In furthering the came
of thc rural freo mall delivery. As
far as Canada was con ornod, oven
if (tomo of the country atorOB did sillier, he did not think that this ob
lection Bhould ho Insuperable, Hint
lar objections to rcftrm had boon
raised In tho post, Railways, lor
Instance had found ffWong opposition
from the stage roaches and ste uu
boats in their earlier stages, wero exceedingly unpopular with the owners
of sailing ships. To como nearer
home, thu automobile had found
many enemies, Tho pout ofllco de
purtment today was making a large
amount or money and whatever aur
■plus there might bo beloneod to the
poople. He felt thut tho time had
como to mako the necessary expenditures In order to give to the country
a boon which Hourly ovory other
country In tho world poiseiBoil today
and ho recommended the adoption
with whatever ehatlgos might bo
ncooHH.iry In the If. B. system.
W. M. Martin, of B'orlnit, snld
thnt If tho government bad in mind
any extensions of the pareeln post II
would find such a move meeting with
the general satisfaction in tho West
and both sides of the houso would bo
one on thc question, lie believed
that uny opposition there was came
from thc ox press companies. Ho
pointed out that at present frnit
costing one dollar a basket in the
Niagara peninsular cost 2 dollars express to luy down in Reglna and
small ports of machnery sent to the
weat cost more for express than for
the actual repaits or the replacement
of new parts.
Dr. M. Clarke, of Red Deer, said
thnt he had a lengthy experience of
parcels pest In tiie old country and
perhaps nothing in thc public service
there brought greater happiness and
comfort to the homes of all classes
of po.iplc. He had received many
letters from his constituents urging
the action of this character nnd ha
commended tbe scheme to thc government's attention.
E. M. Kesbtt (North Oxford) said
he was forced to tho conclusion that
the express companies were very
much overcharging. In Ontario
there was a fair rate ou farm products but on other small articles
thc rates were, outrageous. He
doubted if a system would take away
from the small stores much more
than they had already lost, and he
referred to the excellent service
which could be given throughout tbe
country in connection with the rural
mail delidcry.
A barrel! of apples, for which ho
paid two dollars on the Woodstock
market, cost him two dollars and
thirty cents to express to Montreal.
"Thn*' in m.v judgement-!' he said,
"is ridiculous. The express companies are seeking their own downfall. When they are in a position to
charge they seem to have no idea of
curbing their creed to charge."
Mr. J, E. Armstrong, who followed
said he was glnd to S2e the members
of the opposition taking an Interest
in the question. When tho liberals
were in power he urged upon Mr.
Lemieux the desirability of establishing a parcels post system. The then
minister had referred to many
petitions be had received from ret-ill
merchants protesting against the in-
augeration of this system. He was
as well informed on the subject as
he is today, but he had done nothing. Mr. Armstrong expressed the
view that the establishment of a pnr
eels pest system would compel the
express companies to reduce their
rates .
Mr. Pelletler Tells House all about it

System for many months.
Hon. L. P. Pelletler, Postmaster-
General, Informed tVe House that.as

The Editor.  "I'rnspector,"
Dear Bir:
Permit me, through your columns,
to express on behalf of these associated with me on tbe municipal ticket, and also on my own behalf,
their and my very earnest thanks
for tlio splendid endorsation that
they and I have received from our
citi'/.ens in tbe election of the llitli
Wc came before the electors ou
our past record, and the result of j
the election proves that that record .
3 publicly valued at a price which J
resulted in our unbroken return to j
office. The hest proof thut we can
oiler of the measure of our thankfulness and appreciation of the public
confidence is to assure our fellow
citizens that if we have done well in
tiie past, we shall, with tbeir support, even better our record during
eoming year.
Complaints have been made that
the Sewer By-Law Imposes hardships
on certain of our taxpayers owing
to an alleged defe-t In tbe Plumbing By-Law. We nek that the taxpayers come to as nntl lay their
grievance before us. Wc are in office
to remedy every hardship affecting
our cltbenn. All we ask is that
thoso trievanccs and bardsliipn be
put before us in a plain, common-
sense fashion, and we promise to
remedy the defects to the limit of
our ability. It has bcen sold also
..hit wc nrvn avoided publicity in
our meetings though the doors of
of our Council Chamber were at all
times open to tho people. To meet
that complaint wc now ask and publicly invite our taxpayers and citizens to mako a point of attending
nur meetings and to listen to our
discussions and so place themselves
in a position to judge by our mode
of discharging their business
whether we are, or are not living up
to the record they have so sulendid-
ly endorsed,
Yours obediently,

The election was keenly contested,
a number of Aldermanic candidates
being early at the City Hall and
remaining there until the poll was
closed. A large number of sleighs
were engaged iu conveying lady voters to and from the polls. The result of the election disclosed a number of surprises, especially to the
friends and supporters of tho Santo

The Glory of the Mountain
How beautiful Is the llfo of the
woods and mountains! It has bcen
well said that a mountain ls n mystery, eapoctally If lt bo forest covered. What deep ravines and beetling
crags does It not conceal, what rushing streams; and In the foothills are
deep, silent pools, where grow tho
loveliest flowers, and where the deer
come to drink, and sometimes a bear!
On Possaconaway may bo seen ln the
early summer that most beautiful ot
small wild flowers, the Mitchclla; the
petals aro white at the outer edge,
but toward lie centre most delicately
tinted. *l'he7 cover the ground like
a carpet, creeping among the ferns and
mosses and the rich humus made ot
the fallen leaves ot centuries. Then
thero ls the Llnnaea boreallB, the favorite flower of tho creat naturalist
Linnaeus, clinging to the moss with
a complexion like a milkmaid; and oh!
she is very, very sweet and agreeable. And you can find the clieker-
berry, tho partridge berry, and the
Indian pipe and tho purple brunella,
wild asters, and a host ot other
Most glorious are the woods nnd
mountains in the clear days of late
September, whon thoro has been a
frost at night, Just enough to show
that the color fairies have been at
work; then dark hemlock and white
crag serve but to enhance the rich coloring. Vou may walk or drive for
miles amid the most gorgeous colors
in tlio most bracing air, and under the
bluest skies, and see the granite peak
of Chocorua glistening In the sunlight. It c hard to say when tbo
mountains .ind woods are most beautiful at all seasons, oven amid the
winter's snows when snow shoeing
ond sleighing you go over tlio old
routes onco more, with the temperature below zero and Ihe bright situ

More About
The Loading Platform
The pre..;nt generation ol W-stern farmer:- will never know th.
difficulties an! vexation, experienced ty l.-io'r predecessors In th.
earlier years r.hen no ono could got a carload of grain shipped In
bulk except by loading It through an elevator Tbe system forced
the majority ot farmers to soil tjolr grain to the elevator owneri
at arbitrary prices, and oft times to submit to heavy dockago an!
other nnnoynncos, causing continual dissatisfaction. Now, however,
the distribution of cars as fixed by Iho Drain Act and the uso of th.
loading platform, provide farllltl is which enable tiie farmer to secure
satisfactory uealment In the disposal of hla grain, and tho highest
market prices at timo ot sale. 3vory farmer therefore, should more
nnd moro endeavor to use tho loading platform li shipping his grain
to the terminal elevators. It is the safeguard o' the farmers' freedom In illspoilng of his grain to the hest advantage for himself. It
farmers refrain from using the loading platform freely, it might result In Its being done away with, because railway companies aad
elevator owners aro strongly opposed to It, It is easy to understand
why elevator people desire the loading platform abolished. The railway people on their part say it delays the loading of cars and helps tt
ensure car shortage. This wo know t, he nonsense, because fre-
ouently af'or cars ar*, loaded, whether with grain, coal, lumber, or
other merchandise, they are aid-tracked for days nnd even week.
Instead of being promptly moved forward lo destination. It Is engine

Warnings  to  Tradesmen  and  Others
The up'todate swindler has to be
something of a studeut of human nature. And ono or the human weaknesses thai he has discovered and
made use of is the unretisonlug confidence placed by the average business man in an imposing tetter-head,
especially ir the letter-head is thai uf
a tlrm of known respectability. One
is apt to Eorgel that a letter-head is
an extremely easy thing to forge, with
the result that one rarely suspocts
that tbe letter was not written by the
firm who&e name is printed on the
note paper,
Of course, tho letter-head swindler
is not so clumsy as to walk Into n
printer's nnd order ilie name of a Hrtn
to bo printed on note-paper. The
chances of detection would be too
great, lie goes to work mueh more
He obtain.;, by any of a dozen different, ways Lhe letter-head of a business concern. This ho takeB to a
printer in the neighborhood, anil asks
him to set up a proof of the letterhead. \_ Batlsfaotory the printer is
to receive n good order.
lu duo Hue he culls for Ihe proof,
expresses satisfaction, but slates that
before giving the order, he must lake
il back to the governor,
He lias now a clean piece ot paper
Inscribed With the name of a reputable firm. He immediately writes
upon lt an order to another firm in
thc same line of business, stating thut
the goods arc required in a hurry,
nud that our representative will call
for them :tt a certain time.
Before there is time for correspondence lie calls, and, stating that
he has come for the goods referred
to in the letter, coolly takes them
away and leaves bis victim to find
perhaps some three months later,
when an account is presented, that he
has beeu duped, and that the linn
to whom the goods were supposed to
have been supplied have never even
heard of the transaction.
When he is dealing with heavy and
valuable goods this swindler, true to
the principle that thoroughness pays,
will frequently present himself with
a cart which he bas hired, and upon
which he has invested a few shillings'
worth of paint. And when tho victim sees a substantial cart, with the
nflme of bis supposed customer on it,
he Is less likely than ever to request
cash with order.
Another dodge of tho letter-head
swindler ir, to uso this device as a
means for persuading tradesmen to
fash worthless cheques. He will
leaf about small districts and note tbe
names of thc tradesmen's carls that
deliver goods.
He will then have expensive note-
paper headed wllh the name of one
or more houses. On this he will
write a request to the tradesman to
cash a small cheque for my friend
Mr. Cheatem. Armed with this, he
will dress himself well, lounge into tho
shop in the earlier part of the morning, explal'.i that he ls staying at
the particular house, drawl an excuse
for being suddenly short of cash, and
Iu most cuses obtain money for his
vorthless cheque.
It is more than probable that tho
tradesman will not. carry In bis head
an accurate recollection of bis customer's handwriting. Ho may never have
seen it, as these hills arc usually paid
iu coin. Uut if it happens that he
does notice tho handwriting the swindler Is perfectly prepared.
The swindler will immediately explain that the lady of the house is
indisposed and that It Is tho handwriting of hor sister who is staying
with her. However, if thn tradesman would prefer It. he could doubtless obtain the lady's own written
request., though he would have to send
it into her bedroom; and, as he wants
the money a* once, he would bo very
greatly'obliged if the tradesman could
manage tu send a mau back with him
to the house with the money, to be
handed over when the man Is satisfied.
Thia impudent bluff generally does
tho trick. The tradesman will not
make trouble, even if ho still suspects.
He might possibly refuse, or send the
man as requested, in which case the
swindler would contrive to give htm
the slip.

slept as soundly ou his makeshipt

the nge nl 13. Upon Lady r-'dwinn
bangs all her lather's hopes. Thn
birth of a son to hor will cause him
to forget all hia sorrows, would
make as naught all honors.
The Victoria Cross, tho higheit
distinction a llrltlsh soldier of high
rank cnn receive, Is bestowed only
fnr a doed In which tho recipient
dur ngly risks his llle. Lord Roberts won his Victoria Croas In the
Indian mutiny for such deeda in battle. Lord Roberta flrst born son
dlod when a baby, his second son wns
everything to him. Tnle second Bon
Frederick Hugh Sbiiston, wns killed
at the battle ol Tugola river in tbe
Boor war. He led n charge against
a Iloor battery that was almost certain death. His body and thofle of
threo that, followed him wore decorated with tlio Victoria Cross.
In Great Ilrltlnn a Bon may wear
bis lather's medals on hla right
lirwist, but a lather may not wear
lila aon'a medals. Parliament deeply
sympathise! with Lord Roberts' anguish over his son's death, piiBBed n
special act permitting him to wenr
hlfl son's Victoria Crosa on his right
bronet. So be Ib tbo only man on
earth privileged to pin on two Victoria crosses.

Tells of Ihe Wonderful  Benefits Ob-
iained From
Like many anoiher Newfoundlander
living far from doctors, Mr. Stone
feels unbounded gratitude for the
benefits obtained from tho use of Dr.
Chase's Kidney.Liver Pills.
For years he had suffered from a
congested condition of the liver and
kidneys, with headacbc3, backaches,
pains In limbs and body. Words fail
to describe bis sufferings as well as
tho gratitude bo wants to express for
ibe euro.
Mr. Alex J. Stone, West Point,
Nfld., writes:—"! suppose you
thought I had forgotten all about you
when I got Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills, but I haven't. You must excuse
mistakes, for like many Newfoundland men I bave not much education,
but I want to thank you many times,
for your medicine.
"1 cannct teli you what I suffered
from liver and kidney derangements,
Indigestion and constipation, nor can
1 find words to express how much
good this medicine has done me. I
feel better than I havo for flvo years
r nd have given somo of these pills i
to friends, who tell mo thoy have done j
them a wonderful lot of good. I,
want to express my heartfelt gratitude
for the benefits derived from the
great medicine." j

Reasons Why They Age Prematurely
Why ls it that nlno out ot every ten

and all liavo the yellow-whlto tinge of

rosy cheeks. Thla may have something to do with tbo exorcise, for women working In this branch of industry havo a lot of walking to do. Aud
never was a moro beneficial bonutllU-r
than a sharp walk, however short.
But perhaps another reason for the
un won tod bloom of iho 'read woman1
is ihe fact that during her peregrinations sho usually stays at hotels,
where tlu food is good. Good food
is au essential to beauty. Sho
knows, too, that shirking meals Is

round the garden.
A very sood breakfast for every
season of ilie year consists of a small'
plate of porridge, some bacon or an
egg. toast and butler and marmalade,
ami fruit of some description, stewed i
or otherwise." And. just because It
is hot, do not do away with everything;
except the fruit. A fruit breakfast]
may be very nice In warm weather,
but it Is no ground-rock for a day's,

their living.
And it is simply because they will
not look after themselves. Sitting in
stuffy class-rooms and olliees, before
whirring machinery, on their knees
scrubbing floors, Ihey seem to havo no
energy left to do anything towards
keeping fit when at length tbey have
done for the day. But there ls such
a ridiculously simple exercise, which
lakes only threo to four minutes
overy night and morning, which will
make all the difference in the world
to tha tired girl-worker. She has

And the wonderful change it makes.
Dull eyes bpcome bright, sallow

optimism iu place of a dreary pessimism. And ail because the sluggish

FM 1 HE island of Crete was being quar*
M        reled over this fall, as it has been
"* quarreled over for hundreds  of
years. Turk, Greek and Italian have disputed
its possession, one for sentimental reasons*
another for religious reasons and another for
the sake of military strategy, which appears
in history to be about the most cogent reason
of all.
But among the grasping crew of them,
Crete aud the Cretans occupy something of*
the unpleasant position of thc bone slipping
around amid the ctttshings of some very
hungry pair of jaws; and, so far as any sustenance goes which it might provide, it is pretty
nearly as bare now as any other bone would
be after centuries of gnawings. A little bread
and oil, and a few fresh snails, if they can
find them, and your Cretans will work grate-
fully for the barest of bare livings.
Will that be what England, with its
squadrons keeping thc seas and its merchant
fleets scouring every coast, will come to 400Q
years from now?
For England is now only what Crete was
nearly 4000 years ago. Nobody knows the
language its people spoke, although plenty of
specimens of their writings remain. Nobody
knows just who they were, although it is easy
to picture them in their pride and thetr
They were the sea kings of the known
world, ruling and robbing it with as fine a
freedom as any modern nation of conquerors*
To them poured in the riches of lesser overlords and the fruits of thc toil of distant
slaves. A great and mighty people, puissant
nnd dreaded, before whose sails cities trembled
that are long since dust.
Now the tangible evidences of their
riches and their pride are being revealed to
the world, which only recently heard of their
existence, by thc hands of one woman from a
land of whose existence thos*; roving sea kings
uever dreamed.
SIIK Is Dr. Kdith K. Hall, the assistant curator of
the Mediterranean section at the Museum of
the University of Pennsylvania. She Is back
nfter ant-ther long summer spent In pushing
forward tlio museum's excavations on tho site of the
old, old city of Minos, In Crete, where the sea kings
bad thc seat of their power, and where tholr wives
nnd daughters flaunted at nlgbt their flowing robes
ln fashions wo moderns havo not surpassed, and
poured the milk from pitchers In the morning Whlcb
we would almost seem to have copied.
Jt Is now nearly leu years since the museum
began fis researches in Crete and lho -neighboring
Island, Pselra, undor tho direction of Richard B.
Beeper, who has sinco become virtually resident there,
so as to supervise properly the excavations tbat aro
being steadily extended. Moan while remarkable discoveries have been effected; one whole work bas been
written by a European archeologlst, so graphically
rehabilitating tlm ancient, forgotten scenes, tbat It
Is llko beholding ihem. re-enacted, through the magic
of FOiiio conjurer's wand.
Tbls Is lho marvel of bare, Impoverished Crete—
that onn mighty kingdom of Minos after another
Hiould liavo arisen, flourished and vanished, and
should havo vanished so Utterly thnt no traeo or
recollection of It remained; that only dim legends
should have survived In the oldest of Creek fables-
survived so faintly tbat daring philosophers of history Who ventured tbo speculation thnt tirectan fable
might havo bad some foundation lu fact, were booted
down hh rank materialists, nnd those who proved It
were bulled as wonderful discoverers.
Tt is tbo most ancient fairy tula In tbe world, until
tlOw Wholly Improbable and Jmst now proved beyond
(ho hist hesitation of doubt. For It was Miss Hall's
work of this last summer wblcb settled the most
puzzling .-tn-siimi of ull: If, during those long centuries of resistless dominion, wben tlio warlike Greeks
tent to tbem the bitterly grudged tribute of maidens
for tbo fabled Minotaur, und tho known world paid
Ihem tribute, In their eyries on high, the people of
iMluoa did continue Invincible and seeure, when could
tho blow Imve fallen which burled tbem down to
ruin; nnd who woro lho greater, stronger conquerors
who overthrew thom?
It seems llie Irony of fate that a woman, one
woman, should at taut write tbo epitaph of tbo fabled,
Minotaur; yot It was Miss Hull who, this summer,
proved that lho end of tho Minoan powor camo about
KOO B. C,j at tho hands of tho nll-connucrlng Egyptians. How sho did It Is best told In her own words,
tor .-he bus Uio gift nf picturing tho researches of tlm
present, while slid lifts tho veil lhat lay for thousands,
of yenrs ovor tbo past:
"Tho slory of the arehoologleal discoveries tn
Crelo Is now ton years old. Even our schoolboys aro
learning today thut tho labyrinth of Mlhoa hns been
found, upd that lt wus a palace three stories hlt.li,
with open courts and winding corridors, with storehouses for treasure, a well-equipped bathroom, nnd
11 suite of apartments for tho queen that would compare favorably wllh those of a high-born woman of
today. Uut the tale Is not yet lold. We cannot rend
tho writing of this faraway people of 2000 H. C. Wo
do not know whon they came or whither tliey later
wont, or bow tliey were related to tho Greoks of
•Pericles' time. AU tbls must bo learned by the spade.
Only by tiie patient excavation of site after site can
uuch problems be solved.
"Two years ngo I commenced excavating for the
museum a town situated on a steep and lofty
mountain crag In eastern Crete where tho successors
•f miaos bad lived In Ue days of their declining
power. It was in a wild end rugged district, where
our pontes could grarcely make their way over
boulders and along dlisy ledges, end where It was
difficult to And a level spot big enough to pitch my
tent, Our faithful workmen had no oilier shelter
than the small bush huts which tbey improvised fo.-
themselves, and tbelr food was confined to bread and
ull, witli an occasional dish ot snails as a relish.
"In spite of our hardships and difficulties, we accomplished our end, for we found deep depo^tis of
earth crammed wltb pottery, the very best evidence
possible. It seemed, In fact, tiiat we might learn
from an extended excavation of this- site, especially
tf wn could also find the tomb*, the answers to some
of the vexed questions as to when and how the
Minoan power foil, end It was with this purpose ln
mind that I returned to Creto last March.
"Crete Is not an Island .which Is easy of access,
Thla year I tried going by Way of Egypt, but Uie
same difficulties beset me as heretofore. I'he steamers were small and dirty, and we wero landed In
rowboats at 1 A. M., In a heavy sea. It wns two
days before my companion and myself had sufficiently
recovered from seasickness to start on our journey
eastward. In the meantime I had an opportunity to
see the new accessions of the Candla Museum and to
arrange wllh tlio government for our excavation permit.
"All traveling tn Crete Is done on horseback. Camp
beds and the necessary food end clothing are earrled
on the packsaddle of the muleteer, We stayed at
the house of Mr. Seager, at Pachcla Aminos, until tbe
rains were over, making ready to go into camp. There
wero tents to patch, stores and kitchen utensils to
arrange for, end wheelbarrows and waterbarrels ta
overhaul. In the meantime we dug a fow stray
tombs at Kavousl to whloh our attention bad been
culled by our Kavousl workmen,
"On tho last of April wo were-ready. A Turkish
caique brought the picks, spades and wheelbarrows,
as well as the tents and camp supplies, to a cove at
the foot of the mountain. Our workmen, with tbe
help of a few pack animals, carried them to a llttlo
plateau halfway up tho mountain, where wo had
decided to pilch our camp tills year. A small slono
hut was secured for a kitchen by the payment of 10
francs for the season.
"We bad no neighbors save lhe shepherds who
pastured their flocks close by, but every night and
morning the well of water near my tent presented
a lively scene when tbo women and children from tbe
village below stopped to water their 'possessions'—
generally a donkey, a goat, and a pig apiece—Dn tbelr
way to and from their fields, Tbis well of water was,
ln fact, the social center of the place, all the moro
so when the women learned that I would allow then*
to Inspect my tent Sometimes, at evening, when I
rode home from work, I would find a dozen waiting
fnr me to show them the wonders of my tent, which
consisted of a camp bed, a table and two chairs.
"On May I wo began digging tn earnest with nbout
fifty men. I sot tbem to clear away the brush nnd
stones on the north faco of tbe summit where un-
tisually good walls were peering out from aniouff the
btlshes, and where I thought well-preserved houses
might bo found.
"But I also started another project. Two years
ago, under the guy ropes of my tent, I had noticed a
heap of stones tbat looked like tho top of a 'beehive' tomb; but I imd not investigated It because of
tbo inconvenience of disturbing my tent. Tbls year,
however, t resolved to loso no time ln trying this
ppot, and I sent one of the oldest and most trusted
workmen tbcro. The second day, when on my rounds,
I visited hltn, and he showed me a piece ot bronze, whloh
I recognized as a piece of a foot from a very fine
bronze tripod. Ho also pointed ln triumph to a small
pile of teeth and of human bones ho had found. Ho
had not yet cleared any of tbo walls of the tomb,
but that it wuh Indeed a tomb there could be no
"During tlio next week I spent most of my timo
sitting on lho edge of this excavation,  for every  few
minutes Nikola os would hand ne up something —
another piece of the tripod, a bronze safety-pin, a
porcelain bead or a bit of pottery, Ho much pottery came to light that wo wero u>>iu in put together
forty vases, more than all ihe other workmen together
found during that first week.
"The porcolain. beads particularly Interested me,
for ihey looked to be Egyptian, I hml already filled
all lho smalt how"*) i 'ami -with them when Mkola-.s,
who was full of Jokea about the value of bends in the
next world, suddenly cried:
"'Behold, l have his seal, too.'
"And, sure enough, there was a porcelain seal with
Egyptian hieroglyphs; and that nam" day ho found
five more, I cannot read hieroglyph ; no bad, i".
cordlngty, to wait until two weeks later, when we
chanced to havo a visit from an English Egyptologist.
He pronounced them to lie commemorative seals ot
tho twenty-first or the twenty-Bccond dynasty from
about 980-860 D. C, W« had thus accomplished one
of our purposes, for we had obtained evidence for
dating the fall of tho great Minoan civilization.
"I bad thought that, wllh one tomb found, the
cemetery of our town was already discovered, and
that It would be an easy matter to find more (-pmbs,
Uut such was not tho case; tho tombs proved to bu
widely scattered. We spent days In digL'ln.; trial
trenches which yielded absolutely nothing. We did,
however, find moro In tho end, six of (lie 'beehive'
type, and at least fifty shallow graves, which yielded
quantities of vases and many brouxs safety-pin* or
"It Is often said that Queen Victoria invented lhe
safety-pin. Dut it was only a reinvention; It ban been
In uso throughout tho flrst millennium B. ''. Theso
plna, moreover, are of singular value to tbo arolio-
nlogist; for, according to their shape and Rise, tho
peoples who used them may bo classified. We had,
therefore, good ovidence for the solution of thn other
aivheologlcal problem as to who these people were.
"It was now the middle of June, und the befit was
Intense. The women and children no longer return" d
to the village for tho nlgbt; whole families wen
.camping In the fields for the harvesting season. Neai
every threshing floor a family camped under a tic-,
while men, women and children helped with tlio work
of reaping, threshing and winnowing, ull of which
ls accomplished by the most primitive methods, We
were dally i letted at our work nmong the tombs by
these neighbors, who brought us fresh almonds, apricots and plums tied up In the corners of their aprons
or handkerchiefs; and they were delighted to receive
in return presents of pins with colored heads.
"In spite of the heat, there waa one thing more te
accomplish. One of our basket boys had brought uio
excellent potsherds from a field in the plain below
close to the sea. I was eager to try there for a we*k ,.
to learn if it was a site worthy of further excavation
another season., l.'nfortunaiely, the Romans liad beeu
there before us, eo that much uf iho pottery waa
badly broken. Some beautiful specimens nf tho very
best period, however, were recovered during the-
week that excavation lasted; snd there la every evidence that much more Ilea fctddea away beneath the
"But by this time our money waa exhausted and
we were obliged to send for the Turkish caique, in
Which all our gooda and chattels, together with our
precious finds, were shipped to tbe bouse.
"A few days wero spent there in sorting pottery
and then I packed up the antiquities lu fifteen cases
and set tall with tViem In iho small coasting steamer
for Candle.
"The authorises of the Candla Museum, wltb their
usual kindness, gave me tbe use of a large, oool
basement room where l could spread out my pottery
and bronzes on long tables, Hero I worked for ten
days, photograpnlng and taking final notes and measurements. Tho last ta.sk of all wis to petition the
Cretan government,'In tbe name of tho museum, for
a consignment of the objects found. I a-.led for over
sixty pieces, which, If they are grsnted to US, Will
reach the museum this autumn."

WHILE everybody is tlwotizing on tho liiffli
cost of living, it may ho worth whllo to
look tlio problem squaroly iu tlio faco
ond   consider   whether   personally   wo
liavo uny part in bringing nbout thia result, or
whether "somebody cleo" i3 tho one who olono is
to bo blamed.
It may scorn hardly worth whllo tn compare
lho food hnbita of tho peoplo of corresponding
civilization in Europo with ourselves, because Iho
conditions, surrouiulinirs nnd traditions aro ao entirely different from those iu the United States
that lho comparison immediately breaks down
from tbo weight of lho *'butn" thnt, any ono familiar with continental conditions would insist
ou adding to our statement.
Jt is possible, however, to get somo light on
iho matter of oeonomy of food by noticing tho
food habits of others.
F001> abroad Is often very expensive, nn ibere te
not a sufficient quantity raised for home consumption. Sugar, wblcb Is at thc present time regarded
as a food more than simply a luxury, costs ln
Italy as mueh as IB cents n pound at retail bocauso of
tho import tax laid upon It by tho government, Halt is
also almost a luxury then*, although it is mostly of home
On account of Ihe high taxes in various counlrics,
tread stuffs and moats nre lilsb, snd people with smalt
Incomes enn afford only the coarsest and cheapest bread.
It ts not an uncommon sight to see signs Indicating where
borne meat Is for sale, whito •■pumpernickel,' a very
Ooarso ryo bread, is much In demand In many countries,
Fruits and vegetables would not bo called eheyj,"w?ien
compared with the wages received by tjjyse producing
them; though It must be kuIU that fruits and vegetables
nre abundantly raised.
How, then- do these people live? This Is answered in
one word by saying, "Simply," This would be the key
to thc whole problem in thn United States If the poople
wero willing to undergo personal sacrifice. You say, "We
nro not going to live on black bread and beer, even lf
It does cost less," Ko great a change in the method of
living ls not contemplated; but sacrifices must bo made
somewhere, or the conditions of living will nut be Improved,
It ls the luxurious living that has come upon us so
gradually lliat lt has becomo it habit, and so wo think lt
n necessity lo decent living, lhat lias brought the middle
classes of our people to thn point whero saving for the
future seems virtually Impossible.
Among the Utile economies practiced serosa tho water
—economies which wc iRnore, but which, taken together,
decrease the cost of living-it may be worth whllo to
notice tin- following:
First, since tbe people have not lived luxuriously in
tbo past, und have hot learned what wo c;ilt tho necessity for such living, tliey aro willing to suffer a Utile
Inconvenience tu save ■■mall amounts. As an Instance of
the trend of the feeling in thia direction, in London tho
underground railway company is calling nttcnilon by
means of placards to tbe fact thnt. a first-class ticket
between stations coots only an additional penny, because
most of llie time the third-duns cars art, crowded, but the
company must haul the flrst-olass carriages almost empty,
•Tlio people ure obliged to save their pennies.
Second, tbey utilize everything that is worth utilising;
or, In a word, tbey eliminate tho waste of resources. This
wuste may  come,  from   carelessness or laziness   or  link
of ttuMi-tiit, width is often another name for laslness, The
land Is utilized; not a foot ia wasted. It in u common
sight to see the roeky hillsides in Italy, (Iermany and
France terraced and mado to yield abundant crops of
grapes, OllvCs und other fruit,
Tblrd, the fertilisers that originate nbout tbe edible
or furm are ull utilized, as is abundantly shown by tbo
greet fertility of the fields where theso fertilisers have
been applied. With us th»i rich organlo waste of the
cities is dumped into tlio river or carted off wiih the
Fourth, fuel la suoh an Important Item in the preparation of fond that tno peasants aether all the sticks und
twigs lu the woods, und tbey dig the "turf (peat) in the .
lowlands. For household use, denatured alcohol and
charcoal are also extensively usod. The fuel Is, however,
used in a small stove or burner, so that 75 per cent of tt
is not wasted, as with us, In heating lhe stove, and
when tho meal Is cooked there is not'a large amount of
residual  heat  to  bo thrown away.
The people abroad recognize tbe fact that it Is often
cheaper, especially in a small family, to buy cooked food
than, to cook It at home. In buying broad, It Is true, we
must pay quite a percentage of the cost to tho baker; but
It is often cheaper to do this Hum to pay for the fuel
with which to hako tbo bread,
Tlio same thing la true in tbo purchase of meats. It
may pay belter to let tho dealer cook tho roan In a
Wholesalo way than lo keep up our own tire for several
hours. Theso things are nil to he studied from the point
of economy, and not no much on account of the lahur
of the housekeeper which te Involved.
As an Illustration of what can bo done by cooking on
a targe scale, the "Cuisine Populalre," of Geneva, may
be mentioned. Here nutritious soup can be bought to
tnko home at about :i cents a quart: lieunit (two rati.mi.;)
for 3 cents] meat 'two ration*) for lii cents, und wine for
ID cents a ipmrt. This establishment, uHbough charitable
In design, Ik managed so an to pny expenses.
Fifth, iinolher Important eeotiomy Is vein* tbat no
food is wasted. It la proverbial that tbo French can live
upon what other people would waste. "It Ih not too mueh
trouble" for tbem to look after lho household and see
that there ts no wuste. The women consider Hint lis a
part of Ihelr duty, and thjjy have been trained to do this
through succeeding generations. Hurh ecnnomiea among
the common peoplo havo made (hn French nation mihpiw
In that the peoplo always havo m-mey to loan to tho
government when there Is a demand for it.
■Sixth, tlm amount of mint uhihI Is cut down to llm
minimum, because meat Is egpodslve. KKperluicnls huve
shown that most of us eal loo much ment and foods <-f
the proteld elans.    In furl, It Is probablo thai so large au
Amount is not actually needed for the proper growth and
nutrllion "f Die body.   The (h■num. laborer will maku u
lunch on black bread with u piece of cheese or niiuxaxo
and a cup ef coffee or a glass "f boor, and feel that he
haa been sufficiently nourished,
Hev.-iiih, the household food supply Is ln many coun
tries supplemented, among the common people, by Uie
milk from the cow or goat, or the few rods of ground
around the cottage are utilized for raising vegetable.".
"It Is not too much trouble" to do this, and in the aggregate It amounts to a largo sum to the man of moderate
income who has a large family to rain*.
Eighth, the food te purchased In the open market,
either by the mistress or servant?, and in many cities
fruits and vegetables ere brought mound to the house
dally by venders, who hevo a regular rente and wbo
supply their customers. Tide method of supply gives the
mistress or a trusted servant a chance to see exactly
wbat she ls buying, and sbo does not "order by phone,"
wllh the liability of getting anything that the dcal*r
happetiK iu have on band. Very often a hoy with a ban-i
cart or With a bicycle dell', ers the goods previously
ordered. Hy this method the customer dots not have to
pay fur one or perbups two phones, for the lime of (lie
mnn who takes the order end that of the man who ■'•■
livers the good.". It Is needless to luggiit that all these
expenses of order and delivery are ultimately added to
