the blockaded town.
The white buildings of Tripoli

bombardment had heen delayed because Admiral Aubrey, commanding
the Italian fleet, hnd received a request from the Tripoli garrison for
another day of grace and gave the
garrison an extra few hours.
The battleship Bnodllo Brln and
armored cruisers Giuseppi Garibaldi

It returned tho lire with vigor and
energy. A heavy cannonade was
kept up on both Bides for a few minutes and then thc firing became desultory. So far aa could be seen no
warBhip  was lilt.
Vice Admiral Faravelli, at four
o'clock, ordered his ships to cease
firing to permit the town to surrender, but no sign was given, and alter
a few minutes the ships began again.
This time great havoc was wrought.
Fortifications were razed, tlle fOrta

Before commencing the bombardment of Tripoli the Italian squadron
removed all mines and made a careful revision of thc hydrographic, chart

reason for the delay in bombardment.

bombardment ot Tripoli :
"At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
Vice Admiral Faravelli signaled to
the battleships Giuseppe Garibaldi

bombardment was about to begin.
These vesBels with the flagship Benedetto Brln, steamed up to within

were unable to reply. The Turks
removed their guns to the heights beyond the town and reopened fire trom
there. They were, however, dispersed

Taranto, Italy, Oct. 4. An officer
from the Italian torpedo bout destroyer Alpino who landed here thia
afternoon gave an explanation of the
report so insistently circulated that
the Italians had landed at prevesa
on September 28, the day before war
was declared.
Captain Biscaretti, commander of
the section of the flotilla of torpedo
boats sent by vice admiral the duke
of the Abruzzi, to Investigate the
surround ings of Prevesa and see if
the enemy's ships were there, dispatched two torpedo boat destroyers
to inspect the coast north of Prevesa
Lieutenant Pannusr landed, disguised
as a peasant, and climbed the moun
tain near the town, from the top of
which with the aid of a strong telescope he was able to see inside the
harbor of prevesa and to distinguish
the Turkish torpedo boat flotilla
t here.
Later Captain Biscaretti ordered
his destroyers to open Are against
the Turkish torpedo boats at five
nlles. Thc shots caused a panic
imong the Turkish crews, who threw
themselves into the sea.
Meanwhile the Italian commander
expected an attack from thc fortifications, of Prevesa, hut they kept silent. He feared a trap and ordered
the Artigliere to remain stationary
while thc Corazsiorc Inspected the
Captain Biscaretti himself commanded the Co razz lore, which can
tiously approached under the batteries, but these gave no sign of life.
The Corazziore entered the harbor

time, gave the alarm. The destroyer took the yacht in tow and was
starting out of the harbor when the

him to thc city, expressing the hope
that his visit would result in n settlement of the labor trouble which
bud divided miners and operators for
the past six months.
President Wliito thanked the Mayor
and the people of the town for their
very cordial welcome to him. He was

Says Procedure Was Arranged by the
Triple Alliance
Rome, Oct. 4.—Official circles ridicule the reports which are described
as being circulated with the intention
of misguiding public opinion concerning Incidents between Italy and Austria and of dissensions among the
powers regarding their attitude toward Italy. As a matter of fact, it
is said that what is transpiring was
arranged among the states In the
triple alliance, with the adhesion of
France and Great Britain, wbo are
bound by the agreements of 1901 to
support Italy, or at least to be neutral whinever she decides to occupy
It Is even hinted that negotiations
wtth Austria and Germany which preceded the present action of Italy led
to a basis for the renewal of the
triple alliance, which will expire in
1914, when to the already existing
clauses another will be added regarding the protection of Italy in her
position in North Africa.
The military attaches at the embassies here are following with interest the preparation of the Italian
expedition to Tripoli.      ,
The first contingent of abo it 20,-

Rome, Oct. 4.—In cautioning the
fleet commanders to limit action to
silencing the Tripoli batteries and
compelling the Turkish garrison to
surrender, or to evacuate, the ministry of marine told the officers to remember that the provinces were
about to pass under Italian control,
and the more damage doue the greater would he the expense of repair.
A "message from Admiral Thaon di
Revel says the action appeared more
like a shooting competition than a
bombardment. Oflicers and sailors
placed wagers on the results. In
one instance an order was given to
dismantle a battery. One gunner
woh heard to say : "I bet I can
1 can knock down the left turret at
'he first shot." When the smoke
had cleared away the turret had disappeared. The same voice spoke
again : "Now, the right turret."   In
flash the second mark was ru'ned.

Treating  the Forest  as a
The   progress   of   the conservation
policy of Canada, ns applied to forest resources, depends rnoee upon the
Forestry Branch    of the Department
of the Interior thnn upon any other
organization.       Upon   the   techolcal
knowledge nnd    executive    ability of
the officers of  the    Forestry Branch
depends the future of the forest     on
IC,000,000   acres   nf Dominion Forest
Reserves, as    well as upon the large
area of nnn-agricultural forest    land
in   western   Canada,   which   for the
good of the country may yet be   set
aside   as   permanent forest reserves.
In addition to looking after Dominion  lands the  Forestry Branch       is
now    being   asked    by   eastern land
owners   to   furnish   advice as to the
best means ot securing at the earliest
date a profitable crop of timber    on
waste land or wood lots.     The proper    administration    of forest lands
requires a special knowledge of    the
habits of all trees, especially of the
merchantable species, so that it may
be   known    how   rapidly they grow,
how they produce their seed,      when
and under what conditions the    seed
germinates,    and    in    what way the
seedlings and young trees are affect--
ed    by   their    surroundings.       8ucn
nnowledge   is    gained    only by long
study and experience.     In order that
| the new Rocky  Mountain Forest Reserves may be    administered according to the latest scientific knowledge
an-, the best experience, the Forestry
Branch is now making detailed studies ot the habits of the merchantable
species of trees on the eastern slope
of the Rockies in Alberta and      has
sent one of the men in charge of ths
work to study the systems of forest
management    practised    during    the
past few years by the highly developed United Rtates Forest Service    In
the National    Forests   of   Montana.
Thc   United    States   foresters   have
spent large sums nf money and availed themselves nf the experience      of
many men in  developing plans       of
lumbering    which do not     inconvenience the lumbermen but which ensure
tho protection and reproduction     ol

Branch intends to hnnont largely   by

whut hiippened Just now."
"I—I'd rather you wouldn't speak of
It," she told blm.
"Perhaps 1 hnve been n little hard."
he said earnestly  uud  npnlogptleally
"I   wjint   you  all   to  undersiand   that
I've lived a herd life witb hard people.    Since the day   I shipped  before

learned wbat u cuff and a blow was;
nbut rotteu grub, tbe scurvy und all
tbem things meant, and I knew thut
tbe only   thing  between  them  thing*
and comfort, decency und tbe respect
of folks was money.    I started to get
mouey, nnd maybe I  have been a little hard-Just a little liard."
"No one would  cull you easy, cap*
lain," agreed Smith.
"Anyway,   Mrs.   Urooks,"  continued \
Williams,  "Joe keeps his Job, aud  It I
ain't going to make u bit of difference
between us."
"Not the least?" she asked, wltb
■   "Certainly not," said Mrs. Harris.
*   •'Joe,'* declared Beth languidly, "was
absurd.   Be quite bores me."
Smith smiled at her sod Injected a
good deal of Irony Into his tone as h»
"Yea, you looked as If something
was wrong, Beth."
Tbe captain approached Mrs, Brooks
with an attempt at gallantry that was
elephantine aud grotesque and seized

"Well, Mrs. Brooks," be said, "if
It's all squared you will come riding
wltb us, won't you?"
"Not tonight. You will excuse me."

"Certainly," be assured her, warmly

to say good uight to Smith did not
ruffle his equanimity ln the least.
WHEN   the  door  bad  closed
behind   the   visitors   Mrs
Brooks    uud    Smith    mil
down and gazed ut each
other In silence for some minutes.
"Well?" exclaimed Emma, Interrog
■tlvely, at last
"Well," be replied, "between you

,  "It was terrible!"
"It  ww terribly  true.    You saved

"1 bate blm!" she declared, with a
grimace  of disgust.    "Ugh,   whut a
Smith reflected.
"Maybe, and maybe not," he mused.
"1 can't Just mnke him out."
At this Juncture tbe front door
opened and Brooks entered.
"1 saw tbem drive off," be Bald,dropping Into a chair. "I hope they will
atay away In future. That mother
and sister of yours mnke me tired! 1
taa't stand for them, and, what's mora
I won't! They'd drive a saint to drink. !
and I'm no saint and don't purpose to
be, either."
His wife began to reproach him for
his attack upon Captain Wllllnms nml
for bis general ill humor during tbe
evening, but he cut ber short sharply:
"We won't talk about tbatl Not n
word, you understand? Not from ynM
or any one else.   That's final!"
"Very well; It's dropped," she said ,
and, angry nt last In turn, rose uml '
went to ber room.
Indifferently he watched her go, then '
turned to Smith.
"Got anything to smoke, Jlmsy?" be
"No," be replied, fumbling In his
pockets, "as usual, I'm Just out, but
I'll ruy anmnd to tbe corner store and
get some cigars."
Left alone, Brooks began to give way
to tbe uneasiness and apprehension
thnt had followed upon his scene wllh
Captain Williams.
"I wonder if Williams will fire me,"
be muttered. "If he doesn't It's on account of Emma. He acted as If be'd
go a long ways for Emma."
He was anxious to know what bad I
happened after his brusque departure ■
He went Into the bedroom and found
his wife In tears.
"Don't cry, Emma." he suld soothingly, going to her und taking her In his j
arms. "I didn't mean to hurt your
feelings, I know I've got u tierce j
grouch on tonight, but 1 can't belp It. J
So would you hnve one If you'd had to ,

Mrs. l.i'iH'ks was one of those sweet

contrition to dispel ber resentment
"You certainly hnve bud cause to
worry, dear," she assented,
"After  what's happened  tonight  I'll   I
have  to  hunt  another  Job,"  he said.
"But I don't care.    I'm glad I told Ibe  I

Brooks' relief showed lu his face.
"Well, tbat knocks me." he commented.      "Nobody    else   ever    backed    up

He  weut  lo  the head of  the stairs
and   met   a   messenger   boy   who   was
bearing a  letter and  bud received  in   I
strtu-tiotis to wait for an answer.
1    "Sure!" be exclaimed Joyfully as he \
' perused    tbe    missive.      "Tlekled    to |

She shook her head.
"Tell tbem we can't go."
"Can't go!   Why not?"
"I simply can't."
"1 don'l see why."
"Well, then, I won't; so fbere! You'd

"Write It yourself, tbro," he said.
Irritated and deeply disappointed. "I'm
not going to lie to them."
Wltbout  another   word  she  fetched
some   writing   material,   indited   the
note and sent It off by tbe messenger
"What's the mutter?    Are you sore
over wbut happened tonight?" be demanded sulkily.
"No, I'm not sore, Joe."
"Tben why can't you go?"
"Because  I  can't.    That's  all!"
"1  think  you  might.    If you didn't

Why Should I Use
Cuticura Soap?
"There is nothing the matter
with my skin, and I thought
Cuticura Soap was only for skin
troubles.'' True, it it tot skin
troubles, but its great mission il
to prevent skin troubles. For
more than a generation its delicate emollient and prophylactic
properties have rendered it the
standard for this purpose, while
its extreme purity and refreshing
fragrance give to it all the advantages of the best of toilet soaps.
It is also invaluable in keeping
the hands soft and white, the hair
live and glossy, and the scalp
free from dandruff and irritation.
While its first cost is a few cents
more than that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it is prepared with such care
and of such materials, that it wears
to a wafer, often outlasting several
cakes of othcr soap, and making
its use, in practice, most economical. Cuticura Soup is sold by
druggists and dealers everywhere,
but the truth of these claims may
be demonstrated without cost by
sending to "Cuticura," Dept. 7M,
lioston, U. S. A., for a liberal sample cake, together with a thirty-two
page book oa the skin and hair.

On* Royal Official In England Is Very
Little Known.
Mr. Sands, the inspector of Buckingham Palace, is an ollicial tlie public hear little of, but he nevertheless
holds au important und responsible
position., and at the end of the Lon*
dou season wheu the Court leaves
Buckingham Palaee has an especially
busy  tune of it.
lt is then tbut whut is known to
most householders us "Spring cleaning" is done al Buckingham Palace,
and the work is curried out under
the direction and supervision of Mr.
Several weeks before it is begun,
says Pearsons, lit; inspects all the departments in the palace, makes a
note of any repupering or painting that
will be required to bs done iu any
of them. He aUo inspects all th"
lighting arrangements, aud the water
supply fittings, aud sees that the
drinking   water  is  carefully   tested.
A report of the results of the inspection is then made out uud submitted to the King. When it hav
been passed by H.s Majesty the work
recommended to be done by the inspector is put in hund as soon as the
Court leaves Loudon at the eud oi
the season.
Every apartment where any papering or painting is to bu done is cleared of every vestige of furniture.
Many of tnese rooms may contain
immensely valuable ornaments and
pictures. These are ull packed iu
specially designed steel-lined case*},
this is done by tbe inspector's stuff,
and  under  his  personal  supervision.
A list is mude of all tlie articles
that are packed and given to the inspector, who locks the cases and takes
charge of the keys. The cases are
then Bent down to one of the large
strong-rooms, of which there are
three on tiie basement floor of the
palace where they ure kept until the
apartments from which the various
articles huve been removed are ready
to be furnished  again.
The lurge furniture is removed during the cleaning out or papering and
painting of any apartment tu a very
spacious store-room on the second
Apurt from the rooms that are re-
papered and painted, every room in
the palace is cleaned out at this time
of the year. The carpet in each room
ia first of all cleaned by the vacuum
process and then it is taken up and
the floor und nil the woodwork thoroughly   scrubbed.
Twelve rooms u day are cleaned out
in tliis way until every room ia the
palace hus beeu done. A stuff of ten
washerwomen du the washing. Several
of the personal aud state reception
rooms at tbe palace are, of course,
not carpeted, the floors being of old
polished ouk. Thu floors of euch of
these apartments during the annual
cleaning huve to be repolishcd, a
laborious tusk which takes several
weeks to complete.
Apart from the work mentioned .the
inspector of the pulace has a great
mauy other things to see to. He has
to see that a host of minor repair*
throughout the palace are attended
to, and has to see that everything
from the locks on tlie doors to Uie
window sash cords are in perfect order before lie leaves the pulace.
All the clocks in the palace are
overhauled ut this time of the year.
This alone is in itself a big business,
aud it is done by eontrnet. There are
over three hundred clocks in the
palace, and some of them are immensely vuluuble. There is a clock
in the Queen's boudoir which was iu
tlie possession of Queen  Elizabeth.

A Lightning Conductor
"The lute Thomas Wentworth Hig-
ginson," said a Harvard Instructor,
"loved music, but not the extremely
technical music of Richard Strauss,
Kuvel und others of that type. Colonel Higginson used to tell a story.
He said that Strauss went one summer on a hunting trip in the mountains, lt chanced that on a certain
afternoon a terrific thunderstorm descended ou a hunting party. Amid
ear-split ing thunder and blinding
lightning, amid deluges of ruin whipped by a roaring wind, the huntsmen
all sought shelter. Where, though,
was Strauss?
"Three friends set out in alarm to
look for bim. Thoy feared that iu the
wild chaos of the storm he hml fallen
down it precipice. After a long while
they found hiig; they found him doing—what do you suppose?
"Strauss stood bareheaded on the
summit of a lofty crag. The lightning
played ubout liiui in vivid, violent
hushes; the rain deluged him; tlie
roaring wind Happed his coat-tails
about his head, and the musician, a
ramrod iu his hand, was busily engaged on his crag in conducting the
thunderstorm!"—Detroit Free Press.
Too Much Gold.
An interesting suggestion is mud**
fn regard to the increased cost of living, which, like un enrth wave, has
sent a tremor throughout Europe,
causing food riots 'n France, an outcry against the butchers in Belgium,
and protests against dearer ment and
milk in Germany, while it is largsly
responsible for the labor unrest !n
This suggestion is that the enor-
mous output of gold in recent years
haa upset the balance of prices and
that the world hus not yet shaken
itself down to a true adjustment.
Statistics show conclusively that
<n England, on the continent, and
in North America nearly all the com.
moner and most necessary articles
of food have been steadily rising tn
price since the century opened. Ment,
especially bacon, in England the
poor man's favorite food; milk, bread
and sugar all cost more. It is calculated that there is a ten per cent.
increase in the weekly budget of
household expenses in England.
Prof. Chapman, at a recent meeting of the British Association pre.
dieted that the next three years
would be an era of strikes, due to the
fact that, whereas up to 1996 the cost j
of living had been falling it had !
since then b;*en rising.

Lord Willoughby de Brc!te, who has

Tennyson's Crossing the Bar was
rescued from a similar fate by a nurse

Sir Edward Grey, the Foreign

Morocco affair, once drew an alluring
picture of the old age which he covets
in a apeech reply'ng to a toast proposed by Mr. Churchill. "It is a
time ot unlimited leisure that wa
shall spend with eld friends in a
library. There is a garden outside
the library, rnd of course a suitable
river—not flowing too fast nor at the
tame time flowing too slow, which is
a worse fault. That will be the happiest time of all. I; in those days,
•hall have no thought ot politics
except to read the report of the brilliant speeches which Mr. Churchill
will still be making in the House of
Commons." Sir Edward Grey is not

At one time Sir Edward Grey was

he was Under-Secretary for Foreign

see tbe edge of the wood or tbe fields
lighted up by red or yellow fireworks
Why thia strange lllumlnatluu?
As ull these queer buppenlngs took
place on tbe railroad a few rods from
my house I made Inquiries of tbe railway officials, and here are some Inter-
eating facta about tbe uae of these
curious "fireworks."
The general superintendent of the
New Yurk, New Haven and Uurtfurd
railroad explained aa followa:
"Our rules provide for tbe uae of detonators, commonly known aa turpe-
doea, as audible algnala and of 'fuaeea'
aa visible algnala,
"These torpedoes are attached to
the top of Ihe rail on Ibe engineer's
•Ide of Ihe track by two small flexible metal straps, wblcb are easily
bent around the ball of tbe rail, as
■bown tn tbe picture, and hold the
torpedoes securely ln place until exploded by the flrst train paaalng over
tbla track.
"The explosion of one torpedo Is a
signal to atop: the explosion of two,
not more tban 200 feet apart Is a signal to reduce speed and look out for
a atop signal.
"Tbe fusees are of similar construction to tbe well known Roman candle
used for fireworks celebrations, except that tbey burn a iteady flame
wltbout explosions. A sharp Iron spike
at tbe bottom eod wlll usually stick
In tbe ground or tn tbe cross tie when
thrown from tbe rear of a train and
holda the fusee In an upright position,
wbere it Is more plainly visible.
"A fusee must be lighted and left
by tbe flagman whenever a train Is
running on the "time" of another train
or behind Its own time and under
circumstances wblcb call for eucb protection.
"A fusee on or near tbe track, burning red, muat not be passed. When
burning yellow tbe train may proceed
with caution wben tbe way la Been and
known to be clear. Standard fusees
burn red for three mlnutea and yellow for aeven mlnutea and can be aeen
tor quite a distance.
"You will gather from the above
explanations that tbe red glare of a
flaming fusee on or near the track
warns tbe approaching engineer that
a preceding train haa passed over his
track less than three mlnutea abend
of blm, and under no circumstances
must he pass tbla signal while burning
red. Wben the flame turns to yellow
be may proceed wltb caution, only as
tbe way I. seen and known to be
clear, keeping tn mind tbat when the
fusee changed from red to yellow he
wae exactly three mlnutea behind a
preceding train, which may have stopped within a abort distance or may
be proceeding at an unusually alow
rate of speed."
The superintendent of tbe Shore line
division, another branch of the same
railroad, gtvea thla additional detail regarding torpedoes:
"Wben a train atope upon the main
line and requires protection against
a following train tha flagman goes back
a specified distance and places one tor
pedo. He tben continues a further
distance back, placing two torpedoes.
Ab aoon aa the train he ta protecting ls
reedy to atari the engineer blowa r
apeclfled whistle signal, which la a
notice to tbe flagman to return lo his
train. On tbe way back be plcka up
the one torpedo, leaving two ou the
rail to warn the engineer of an approaching train tbat another train Is a
abort distance abead and to give tbe
flagman time to run back and get
aboard of bla own train."
Of the use of fireworks as algnala In
the nary tbe chief of the bureau of
construction and repair of tbe navy department Washington, makea tbe following statement:
"All modern ahlpa areffltted with
electric elgnals, and tbe uae of such
algnala la general lu the naval service.
In tbe case of small veeaela having no
electric Installation and also for use In
case of the failure of tbe electric algnala the navy bas a system of colored
(tars In connection wltb rockets for
tbe purpose of signaling.
"These are ln no aense the ordinary
commercial fireworks, but are maun
factured by tbe aervlce for naval uae
"Tbere are no photographs ot tbla

Cincinnati Inquirer : One week of
strike of 200,000 ol steamship and
railway men in England endangered
tbe (ood supplies of 40,000,000 people. It brought to the attention of
the world the dependence of the British people upon foreign sources for
tbeir daily sustenance. It has been
known for years that a month of
complete cessation of importation ot
food supplies to Britain would reduce the masses of the people to a
state of starvation. Under these
circumstances their stores of reserve
provisions can only he classed as exceedingly limited.
Thc -daily riotw in Prance upon the
account of high prices of arti les of
food point precisely to the same
state of affairs there. What a market for the product of the soil Europe affords! What a certainty of
profit to the producer of food, the
farmer, does the worldwide demand
for his products guarantee !
Neither capitalists nor labor unions would be arrayed against each
other for one hundred hours if the
farmers would strike and refuse them
food. The cultivator of the soil Is
preeminently the maBter of the situation In the world today, and the
prices of fertile acres of land will
continue to increase until the production of food supplies fully equals
the demand. That is not likely to
occur for decades, and the farmer
will be in the Baddle or the automobile for many years to come.
Gossip during the past week has
connected the name of Mr. D. J. Elmer as beint* the prospective appointee as postmaster for Cranbrook.
Mr. Elmer, being a Btaunch, and
hard working Conservative is entitled to every consideration at the
hands nf his party, and if he was appointed as postmaster would'be recognized as a man capable of nlUny
tho position with credit to himself
and all concerned. But we have
been informed by Mr. Elmer that he
is not Becking any office at the band
of tbe government, thnt his business
relations are such, that they wodd
not allow him to accept any nPP >lnt-
ment that the government might in
their wisdom tender him, that be

generally to understand that ho cannot accept any government 'ippo'nt-

Domestics for Canada
Work of the Immigration Department of the Canadian
Prod J. Moss. European Bmigra-
Agent of the Canadian Northern
Railway, recently gave an interview
on his work.
"We are now sending parties of 30
aud 40 domestics every two weeks
to Canada," said Mr. Moss, "transporting them on the company's steamers and lines to Winnipeg, which Is
the distributing puint. I am also
in touch with tbe finest, uf thc [armors and farm laborers. The British
Isles can spare 6,000,000 people who
would do this country a lot of good
by cuming steadily and would not do
Ihe Old Country any harm by leav-
ing. It is these latter three classes
which Canada wants, and wants
badly." Mr. Moss stated that there
was never a time when Canada and
the Canadians stood as high iu the
estimation of the* British Isles as at
present. This is the first year that
the Canadian Northern haB sent out
Immigrants to this country, but
since January the company has sent
tu Canada seven thousand of them,
and next year it expects to send out
nearly twenty-one thousand, judging
from inquiries received at the London offices. The Canadian Northern
haa also brought out this year 1,000
domestics, and each one of them has
been placed by the company in a respectable situation, The company
will continue to bring tbem out during thc winter. Mr. Moss said tbat
In one district alone in the west the
farmers collected over $1,000 in one
week to pay for transportation for
the girls to come out.
A newly-made rnnpistrate was
gravely absorbed in a formidable document. Raising bis keen eye, he
said to thc man whu stool patiently
awnitint; thc award of justice: "Officer, what is this mau charged with?"
"Bigotry, your worship. He's got
three wives." replied the officer.
The new justice rested bis elbows
on the desk nud placed bis finger-tips
together. "Office.'," be said somewhat sternly, "what's the use of all
thiB education, all these evening
schools, all the technical classes an'
what-not ? Please remember, in any
future like case, that a man who has
married three wives has not committed bigotry but trigonometry. Proceed."- Lincoln State Journal.

Rowe took a place in this mundane
arena fifty-one years ago in the town
of Whitby, un hour's ride east of Toronto. He acquainted himself with
the rudiments ot book-lcarnin' in that
town—became prortcient in Latin elocution there. He was enrolled at the
Normal School, Toronto, and Pickering College. He then became inspired with the pioneer notion of purging this blighted colony from the
stigma ot illiteracy and gave the children in tlte woods periodic lessons iu
psychological marksmanship. But
Jtowe theu treated the teaching profession as so many have since done.
It was a stepping-stone for him, ami'
it must have suffered a marked de-
firession when he placed his depart*
ng foot upon it.
He stepped up into the Methodist
ministry. He remained there from'
1865 to 1907.
In 1093 Rowe was an appointee of
the Dominion Government to prescribe for the malady induced by the
coal strike iu British Columbia.
Here's a secret—Rowe told the writer
he found a lot of interesting things
there, including some astonishing
facts, and he is going to write a
book some day for the edification ot
the unions, tbe strike leaders and.
some clerks in Uie Immigration Bureau at Ottawa. He says it will be a
sizsler. During the last ten years he
has been seeing things in British Columbia, many of them previously unseen, because other folks were only

No Mora Sea-Sickness.
The new Cunard liner Lakonia,
which was launched recently on the
Tyne, England, will be unique in the
possession of an invention fur which
is claimed the remarkable virtue that
it will practically do away with the
seasickness. The vessel will be fitted
with a large tank occupying the bottom and sides amidships, and it will
be possible by means ot a regulator,
to counteract the effect produced by
the consumption of coal, stores, etc.
The water tank, which is divided into
compartments, is covered,wwith air-
tanks, and at the bottom are specially constructed water passages.
The tanks are partially filled with
water, and the motion of the ship
Is checked by a contrary movement ot
the water from one side to the other
through the passages. To provide
for changes in the movement of the
vessel the water which is always under perfect control, can be regulated
to suit circumstances. One or two ot
the compartments can be utilized as
required by opening or closing the
valves which are affixed to the air
tanks, and by completely closing the
valves the passage of air from the
side oi the ship to the other is pre*
vented. In this way the water in the
tanks may be thereby keeping the
vessel irom rolling. The Lokonia will
uot only be the first Atlantic liner to
be fitted with the anti-rolling tanks,
but also the flrst British ship to be
so equipped.
New  Home fer  Roman  Boat.
The delicate operation of removing
the Roman boat which was found in
the bed ot Uie Thames ou the site
of Uie new London County Hall to
the orangery in Kensington Palaoe
Gardens was completed recently with*
out misadventure.
The boat was found embedded deep
down in the substratum of the river
bed during excavations last year, and
since it has been exposed to the air
the beams have hardened, cracked.
and shrunk. The whole structure is
so brittle that lt was necessary to
build a frame completely iound It.
The keel had to be enclosed in a box,
as otherwise it would probably have
dropped out altogether.
When the timbers came to be moved a quantity of bones were found in
a very decayed and brittle condition.

"They're all right, thank you. Why

"Why, yesterday you said you did

Quaint Q.lician C.mp In London,
England, Suburb.
Lodged in a Tery commodious house
and pardon adjoining Garratt lane,
Wandsworth, London, there are at
the present time some 130 Oalician
gipsies, drested for the most part in
barbaric splendour and reputed to
he very rich. They hare tramped
from their own land to the Metropolis, where the remaining members
of the tribe have armnged to join
them pror to a general departure for
South America. It wns evident that
the house, capacious though it is,
could not possibly accommodate the
whole crowd. Hnd sn fhe extensive
grounds adjoininL' hnve bean utilized
as n cHmping plnce. Their gorgeous
gnrments notwitlistnniling, and de.
spite the prodigal innnner in wh:ch
they nre spending iheir money, the
instinct of the mendicant is strongly
implanted in the younger members
nf the tribe. One little mite, n quaint,
brown-faced figure in fei, ragged
knickers, nnd little else, begged hard
for coppers from strangers passing
through the little cnte lend ng to tha
grounds, A refusal was met with ft
chorus of loud nnd persistent howls,
the lumentatiiins being listened to
with amused interest hy the elders
of the tribe. A hoy ol about 10 summers was bravely stnigtM'ng with ft
wcll-fllloil briar pipe, and, incidentally, giving vent to some rather
quaint impression0 of British shag.
The house has been taken for ail
months at a rental ot $400. Evidently the temporary tenants know little
of the niceties ot civilization, for
with all their reputed wealth and
handsome garments they appear to
look upon dirt as hardly worth
eliminating. London people were at
first inclined to view the invasion
with something akin to indignation.
Gradually, however, these picture,*
que wanderers, with their brown
bairns, bizarre attire, and apparently limitless resources, have Insinuated themselves into the good graces
of the district. The languages of
many lands are heard ns they pass
to and fro—Russian. Polish, French,
Spanish, Italian, a little English, and
their own tribal lingo. Speaking in
Russian, the Gipsy Queen of the
tribe, Maria Petrovna, an old lady
garishly dressed and loaded with
coins and barbaric jewellery, gave an
interesting account of herself and
her people. "1 and all my people
like London very much, but we an
not going to stay here long; the
language Ib impossible to speak. I
know French, Russian, Italian, Spanish, and many other languages, but
English not at all. We remain here
three months, and we are very soon
going to have a big wedding in this
camp. There will be feasting and
dancing and singing for several days,
and our comrades who live in Liverpool and have become quite "English
are coming to the wedding. But we
will also invite English guests to it,
and as they cannot understand our
music I am going to h're an English
military band, which will make them
dance. Of course 1 am queen now
and only command, but nil my people work hard, making pots and
pans. We are extremely content and
very, very rich. We have so much
money and gold that we can always
buy good food and nice clothes and
jewellery. I only wear gold ornaments and coins,, but some of the
women have silver. There is nothing
we want; we are just like fishes in
the water. Only 1 do not like the
English meat, the beef and mutton
are so stiff that I will not buy them,
and so we must eat chickens and pork
every day. I have several women
who do all the cooking, hut I sometimes go and look on myself, because
I know everything much better. My
husband is the chief man, but I am
the chief of all, and I must be obeyed. I am a Russian, but there are
all sorts of nationalities in my camp.
Before we go away we are going to
show you a gipsy theatre here, and
I myself will sing and dance. You
English people have never seen any*
thing like it, but we like you all the.
same, and are sorry that we cannot
stay here longer."

therefore expected from al administrative officers, for exasperating:

i from the present generation that we'
j may look for much — the succeeding
generation are in the hands of administrative officers, und it is for them
to ..lould the people as' best they can
| with the educative means at their disposal. It must certainly be their endeavor to lift the natives to a higher
plane of civilization, but this can only
be achieved by gradual methods ana
by observing existing, conditions.
Every improvement must le by a natural process of evolution which will
cause no extreme dislocation of present circumstances. We should support the authority of the chiefs, councils of elders, and headmen in native
reserves, and the prestige and influence of the chiefs can be best upheld
by allowing the peasantry to see that
Government itself treats them as an
integral part of the machinery of the
administration. Native tribes vary
greatly, and whilst some have a natural genius for self-government, others are more primitively constituted.
Many of the tribes in East Africa
have no chiefs of recognised authority,
but where this is the case tribal of
family authority is vested in a chosan
council of elders. By upholding ttie
authority of the chiefs and elders it
is not intended to imply that officers
should sit down and enforce blindly
all orders issued by these men who,
after all, are in a sense savages. Tho
main object of administering the peo-
Sle through their chiefs is to prevent
isintegration amongst the tribe; but
active interest, supervision, and guidance on the part of the oflicers of thej
administration are all necessary for
tb > prevention uf abuses. There aro
not lacking those who favor direct
British rule, but if we allow the tribal authority to be ignored or broken
it will mean that we, who numerically
form a small minority ln the country,
shall be obliged to deal with a rabble,
with thousands ot persons in a savage
or semi-savage state ail acting on
their own impulse* uml making themselves a danger to society generally.
There could only be one end to such
a policy, and that would be eventual
conflict with thc rabble.
The policy tu be pursued with regard to natives in European settlements and towns is a more difficult
subject to deul witb, and its solution
Is one of the most important tasks
before us. The elaborate structure ol
native custom and belief is apt to fall
when we touch it, and yet we express
surprise at the disorder of our own
creation. We hold out inducements to
natives to leave their homes, and yet
we are astonished that these natives
will not always return to their reserves. We cannot comprehend why,
because they ha<re tasted the sweets
of town Ufa, they till not carry on
their former occupation in their own
villages or hamlets under the role wo
are endeavoring to maintain and

The Narrator Could Qualify In That
Class, However.
"When I waa a boy," said the story
teller, "I lived in the oil country
and my grandfather owned a big farm
there. They had never found oil within five or six miles ol grandfather's
place, but they were gradually edging
along in his direction, and we all ex*
pected that sooner or later somebody,
would uncover a gusher there. That
would mean a fortune for grandfather,
and as I was his only heir I natural*
ly took considerable interest ln thai
matter Well, one day a rich oil man
came along and made an offer lor
grandfather's farm. They had struck
a good well near by, and everybody
had come to the conclusion that
grandfather's iarm was in the middle
ot the oil belt. Our Iriends advised
against the acceptance of the first
offer, which would have been twenty
times as much as the farm would have
been worth if no oil had been there,
but it was certain that if oil were discovered on the farm we could get $50,-
000 and perhaps 1100,000 more than
the price mentioned by the first bid-
"Seeing that grandfather wouldn't
sell, the man leased a couple of acres
from him and started to put down a
teat well. It was expected that they
would have to drill about 1,000 feet
to reach the sand in which the oil was
located, and when they got down that
lar not a sign of oil had been found,
so they decided to torpedo the thing.
"The scheme was to put a lot ot
nitro-glycerine into the well and blow
it up. That olten made gushers ot
what at first seemed to be dry holes.
They brought a large quantity ol the
explosive stuff to the farm and stored
it in a little shed, expecting to blow
up the well the next day. Here's
where the hard luck comes in.
"It happened that I had a goat, and
this goat got into the shed where tha
explosive was stored. Boylike I rushed in to get the goat out, and grand-
lather and a crowd ol the well-drillers saw me. Tiioy were horror-stricken. For a moment nobody could move
or even speak. Then grandfather offered his iarm to any one who would
rescue me. One of the drillers accepted the offer and entered the shed,
where he succeeded in getting the
goat by the horns just before he had
butted into the cun of nitro-glycerine.
"He flung the goat out through the
open door ol tlie shed,' and then,
catching me in his arms, carried me
uut in safety to grandfather. The
old gentleman insisted on deeding
the place ov.'r to him then and there.
The next day they attempted to torpedo the well aud then tt was dis.
covered that the can which was sup.
posed to be lull oi nitro-glycerine
contained nothing but lard, and the
goat died ol the shock it had bub.
tuined when it wus thrown Irom tha
shed. Eventually tha well turned
out to be a gusher."

French Avteter Makes Some Remark.  !
able Prophecies.
Much has been written about the
utilisation of aeroplanes in land war- '
tare; but M. Beaumont, the winner i
of the recent $50,000 att race, draws a I
remarkable picture of their use in j
naval engagements. And considerable j
weight is lent to the opinion oi M. |
Beaumont, or rather Lieut. Conneati, j
to give him his correct name, by j
reason of the fact that he is an ex- I
perienced sa'liir and gunnery expert. !
In M. Beaumont's opinion, prac- |
tically every warship will, in the near
future, carry an aeroplane. He says: !
"The aeroplane will be carried, as a
matter ot course, in a vessel that is
specially adapted to accommodate it.'
There will be no difficulty about that.
A platform, large enough for the'
'take-off' and tor the landing of an
aeroplane, can easily ba installed on
the bridge ot a cruiser, and still more
easily on that of a liner. Thc aeroplane will not be sent hundreds ol
mllea away trom its parent ship, but
will be used, in a sense, aa a captive]
balloon or a periscope might be.        .
"When an exploration ol the hori-
aon is required, though, the aviator
can ascend   to a great   height, and,
ithout going more than four or ftvj
miles trom the ship, can survey a
vast expanse of water. If he signals
that there is smoke, or a vessel that
seems to call for inspection, he will
descend. The ship will then move
close to the suspicious object, and
he can make another ascent and
examination later on, Bending his
report, in every case, by wireless
telegraphy. II anything should go
wrong, and he lias a tall, it is only
a question of picking him up, with
hia muchine. There is nothing Utopian about thia vision ot the future;
it is absolutely simple."
M. Beaumont does not consider that
the aeroplane could be used, at any
rate meantime, as a weapon of of.
fence. He pointa out that trom tha
height trom which the aeroplane
would have to manoeuvre in order to
keep out of danger, it would be impossible to release a bomb with certain aim even if the target was so
large a one as a battleship of the
heaviest type.
There is, however, another use to
which aeroplanes can be put in naval
warfare. It was recently demon-
strated that it was possible tor an
aviator Irom a height ot 1,700 feet-a
height which would render him prap.
tically immune trom artillery flre-
to see the movements of submarines
80 feet below the surface of the water.
The experiment was carried out recently at Cherbourg, and within •!
few days another French aviator sue.
cesafully transmitted, by wirelera
telegraphy, a message trom hia aeroplane to a receiver thirty miles away,,
although he was traveling at a height
ot 1,640 feet. The rece'ving wire cn
the aeroplane was nearly 400 teet
long, and automatically unwinds as
the flying machine ris«s. The electric apparalua is worked in connection with the aeroplane motor, anl
it is hoped that in luture experiments
communication may be possible at i
distance ot more than sixty miles.

Jamaica Offer* Much to Thai* WSi

Senor Q. H. Melhado, the Crowus
ol the West Indies, is very enthusiastic over the smiling isle of Jamaica
which h« believes has a great luture
before it. He is probably the richest
mau in the West Indies and the best
informed on opportunities for investment iu that fruitful region. In discussing the matter recently he said:—
"Unless a man has a good-sited nest
egg he will not be able to make much
tnoney ia Jamaica. There are only
three or four industries — growing
sugarcane and bananas, raising cattle
and mining—and capital is absolutely
essential. Land is cheap, however,
and there are large profits in sugar
and bananas. Then, too, capital is
absolutely safe in Jamaica. It is the
best-governed of all the Knglish colonies, and no matter where one lives
on the island one can go to sleep with
as much security as iu the biggest

Ghost and tht Secret Box.
Lord St. Audries, better known as
Sir Alexander Acland-Hood, has been
entertained at the House of Commons
to a farewell dinner by Col. Lockwood,
Sir Gilbert Parker, and Mr. Wilfrid
Like many of the members of both
Houses of Parliament, Lord St. Audries was in the Grenadier Guards,
but left the army some seventeen
years ago upon succeeding to the baronetcy. Four years previously he had
married a daughter of the fourth Lord
A nephew of the late Lord Hood of
Avalon, his lordship is also a connection of Lord Bridport.
There is a weird ghost story told
about the Bridport family. At the
death of the fatlvr of the present
peer, an old worm-eaten box was
found among his possessions. No
one had ever been allowed to touch
it, but alter the decease of the old
peer a relative determined to find out
its contents.
So one night, having had It conveyed into the library, he set to
work, struggling hard with the locks,
clamps, and steel binding. Looking
up suddenly, so the story goes, he
was utterly astounded to see the dead
man standing opposite him, his arm
raised, au though defying him to go
any further. After that the box with
ita secret was destroyed unopened. '
Women  In Business.
"Women," said the bromide sen-
tentiously, "ought to live at home
and attend to their housework. They
can't stand the killing pace of business life."
"Oh, can't they?" asked the man
who had made a few observations.
"They seem to do fairly well in business. You never find any of them
In sanitarium*. You'll nnd lots of
business men there. You also will
find many married women there, and
as a rule those who have had the
least to do with business. The sanitariums of the country find their
most numerous patrons to be society
women, who never have given business a thought in their lives. You
know, of course, that farmers' wives
fill the insane asylums. Don't you
worry about women in business. It
Ib good for them. They are not likely
to push it to an insane limit. All
they ever will learn of it never will
hurt them. It will do them and the
rest of the world more good than
"Well," tlie friend said, "he seems to
be able to make an honest living.".
"Yes," she replied, "but, heavens,
who wants to marry n man of that ■

Death After a Scratch
Morris Quatsam, nn eleven-year-old
Windsor boy, fell off his bicycle and
scratched his wrist. He thought nothing of the injury, hut blood poison
set in, and he is dead.
Such incidents as these — by no
means infrequent—ought to make people reuli/e the danger that may lie
even in the smallest Hesh wound.
Take u simple illustration. When
ii knife, a rusty needle, a splinter of
dirty wood, a barbed wire fence, or a
thorn, scratches the hand, the latter
is inoculated with germs, of which the
air about us is full.
The way to avoid serious results is
to cleanse the wound and apply Zum-
Buk. Zam-Huk is a powerful, yet
painless germ-killer, aud when applied to the broken skin is absorbed
into the tissue, instantly destroying
the germs that spread disease and
stopping the pain and smarting. That
is why Zam-Buk is so popular with
The flesh thus soothed and purified,
the wound is made perfectly healthy,
and all poison and cause of festering
removed. Having done this, Zam-
Buk then proceeds to heal the wound
or sore, and new healthy tissue is
built up in a quick, painless and perfect manner.
Zam-Buk must not be confused with
ordinary ointments. Zam-Buk is a
unique preparation, possessing antiseptic, soothing and healing qualities
that are not to be found together in
any other preparation. It is not only
ii unique healing balm, but it is ulso
it skin food. For all skin diseases and
injuries—outs, bruises, burns, eczema,
chafing, ulcers, ringworm, etc., it is
without equal. It is also used widely
for piles, for which it may he regarded
as a specific. All druggists and stores
sell at 50 cents a box, or post free
from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, for price.
Refuse harmful imitations.
Shared the Knowledge
The nighl train was approaching
Blackhenth, outside of London, and
two Americans, unacquainted with the
locality, were in doubt as to the station. One peered out through the
window into the unresponsive darkness and sank back to his place. The
other did precisely the same.
"Is it Blackhcath?" inquired the
"Tlie Lord only knows," replied the
other, in hopeless fashion.
A small, apologetic, shrinking sort
of Kngli.diinaii sitting next, spoke up.
"I beg your pardon," he said, softly, "for intruding upon your personal
and private conversation, but ns I
happen to share thnt knowledge with
the Almighty, permit nie to say that
it is Blackhenth."—Lippincott's.
An Intertalnlng Experiment With Alcohol end Water.
It la not easy to imagine liquids &*■
hiflug pores, though this seems tc he
the case aa shown by certain tarni'.ir
experiments. Wben a certain aiuuiwi
of powdered sugar ls slowly poured
Into warm water, tbe water will d'«
solve tbe sugar and appear to absorb
it without Increasing Its volume. Similarly, wbeu alcohol Is poured Into wa
ter tbe resulting volume Is less tliuu
the sum of the two volumes.
For instance. Ir fifty parts of water
and fifty purts of alcohol be mUed to
gether tbey wlU make only uloety-fuu.'
parts. Apparently one of tbe liquids
baa entered luto tbe "pores" of tbe
otber. Tbla experiment, as commonly
performed in laboratories, consists In
putting measured quantities of tbe two
liquids together, but tbe effect would
be fur more striking were it possible
for students to see one of Ibe liquids
actually "soaking" into tbe otber. Tbis
can be done tn the following way:
Take two glasses, oue tilled to tbo
brim wltb water and the otber wltb
alcohol. In order lo show the effect
to belter udvantage. color tbe alcobol
witb red tuk. Tbe glasses should not
be over full—tbnt Is, tbe surface of the
liquid Bhould uot bulge abuve the rim
of the g'uss. Wheu everything is
ready, place n sheet of paper orer tbe
glass full uf alcohol, and wltb a band
ou tKv paper to keep it down on the
rim or lbe glass Invert Ibe tumbler,
aud the liquid win remain In tbe glass,
owing to the uh pressure ou Ihe puper
Now place tbe Inverted tumbler uver
the glass***full ot wuter and carefully
draw out the puper. This can be doue
without spilling a drop of alcobol. uud
yet aa soon us the paper ls removed
tbe alcobol wlll commence to drop.
Owing to the fact that It Is colored It
ts possible to see the alcohol actually
•'•waking'* into the water, while tiny
air bubbles tbnt were formerly contained In the "pores" of the water rise
stowly to the top of the tumbler. This
will continue for some little time until
a considerable air space forms In tbe
tup of tbe tumbler.
