(Hy Joseph Kyan.)
Thc very name, St. Mary's, Ik
beautiful iu itself and beautiful in its
associations. It suggests quiet
waters, wide and peaceful waters
where tht; talt mountains awl tlw
givat trees look on their unwrinklcil
slvadows wlwn the hush of the evening

jmiturc, somehow, the large-eyed deer
coining down at quiet spots to drink
before tlwy seek their couchot. Without knowing tbat wonderful valley its
name conjures up a place where Nature in her best mood takes us by
the hand ami lets us look u little
closer into her eyes so that we, if
we be philosophic, may recognize her
as the calm, serene mother of our
physical beings, tlw fount, of our
existence, our final resting place;
and, feeling that we are oue with her
even in her mightiest manifestations,
thus leach us to have no dread of t blind when the curtain ot life rings
down ami the brain timt thinks those
thoughts will spiritually function on
another and a higher plane. This
sounds like pure Nature worship, but
poor were the worshipper, indeed,
could he not look deeper aud bow
down In humble adoration of thv
Omniscience of which Nature is but
one form ot expression.
Calm is St. Mary's lake and tranquil the valley in summer. Deeper
sinks the tranquility in the early
autumn when tlte infant frosts first
touch the larches and aspens to yellow gold. Later on will come the
heavy snows, which, in due time
melting, will -brim the river full and
stir the lusty trout to moving in lake
and stream. For the trout are
there in plenty, and char, too, and
all are ot a lustiness and a fighting
quality not to be surpassed in the
Once there were two men fishing at
tbe outlet, thc cant end, of ihe lake.
Both were experienced fishermen, bui
one was, and Is, a past master oi
the fly iishing art and has fished in
every, water under the sun that is
worthy of Hie attention of a sportsman. Tbis particular day on St.
Mary's lake he had on a two pound
trout and was about bringing it to
tbe net when up dashed a fish and
tried to,capture his captive. Describing this visitor from the depths,
he said that he had often killed salmon up to fifty pounds in weight, but
this char—ft must have been a char-
was easily more than that. It was,
he declared, by far the largest (rcsh
water fish he bad ever seen, and he,
be it remembered, is no novice even
with the mahscer of Upper India. By
the way, both those men went back
to the St. Mary's the other day. It
is years since they saw tbe hig fellow, but thc memory of htm endures.
May all manner ot the -best kind of
fisherman's luck attend them should
they again encounter with tbis mega-
A man who knows these things,
knows the St. Mary's country, and
best of all knows William A. Meach-
en, of St. Mary's ranch, hard by lake
and river, wanted • few days holidays and gathering up his rods, his
bag and bis basket flew by tbe wings
of the Marysville Double Express to
Marysville and drove up to the ranch
through seventeen milea ot matchless
scenery. Tbat man was made welcome, for maybe, he is esteemed a
friend by Wilhclm, Kaiser ol these
delectable regions and most kindly
and hospitable ruler ot his own fair
domain. He had with him a shot
gun, born in Bonnie Scotland and a
dandy to shoot, for he thought he
might have a crack at the ducks.
However, his enduring discouragement came that very evening of his
arrival when a Hock of ten teal flicked into tlw big spring within fifteen
yards of tin* door. Wild teat, mind
you—those little round, buntv chaps
that can fly like bullets. " There
they were chasing eaeh other about,
catching Hies, preening their leathers
and taking about as much notice of
the man as tliey would of a graven
image or a peaceable old cow. He
went down, and dipped up a pail ot
water within live yards of these delightful, happr little fellows without
in the least disturbing them. He
felt it would Iw rank, foul, unsports-
niaulv murder to dare pull a trigger
ou them, more thau that, il anv one
tried in his -presence to harm them,
Iw would, law or no law, put «
charge of shot in tlw south end of
the marauder. He never took his
gun out of tbe case.

with no more noise than tf you had

talk galore of ull manner of points
about hunting, trapping, prospecting,
mining, wild life, mosquitoes and what
the Lord ever created them for. aud

most things aud will not permit
either wrong statements of fact or
wrong deductions from facts when
stated. Talking of caribou llobi said
that it the cows be barren they shed
their horns like the bulls, but if they
be with calf they retain their horns,
This is a wonderful provision ot nature since the bulls in the soring
time would certainly destroy thei calves it the mothers were deprived ol
the means of protecting them. II.
said that one spring day he saw a
big bull being chased like a vellow
dog with a can to his tail bv a horned and frantically indignant mother
cariboo because her one-time lord got
too near her calf. Mrs. Cariboo accelerated his progress to foreign
parts by a boost in the rear that

to see these domestic comedies in thc
lives of thc wild things.
Early to    bed is thc motto in   all
eases when men are out for sport,
the man were one giving to praying
he would have called
down blessings        untold      and

potatoes, on the valley and on every
living thing that there abides. As
tor praying tor Bob Huggard it
would lw waste of breath and energy,
He can do his own praying, but in
any case, there is a special Providence taking the best care of him, or
else he is taking personal care of thc
special providence. It is bard to say
exactlv how that is, but it is something like that, anyhow. Thc time
that Bob cannot take care of himself

to offer up intercession on his behalf.

Wtitttipi'f-. .Man., Sept. 11.—The exposition ponimlttee is making gtcai
f>t\vat'atiott.s to U'ftik't" a rttuption to
Lord Strathcona, which shall bring
U) thc direct notice ot the llich Commissioner the importance of Canada's
concern and a very great commercial
centennial as a matter of national
concetti and a very great rommercial
ami industrial force. Thoroughly
persuaded of this themselves, tho ci-
t'lvsitiou committee seeks to impress
tlic fact upon l.otd Slrathcoua, realizing how considerable a factor bis
lordship will become iu the success ot
the exposition project if his hearty interest is secured. In order to make
Lord Slrathcona's interest as close
as posoible, and have the immense
prestige of his name added to the
cxfiositton in a direct way. it is proposed to elect his lordship honorary
president of the exposition, provided
his consent can be secured. Those
who know Lord Strathcona arc of tne
opinion that he will bo so greatly
interested in a project that means so
much to Canada that tlic proposal to
elect hint to the honorary presidency
will meet with his entire approval.
Definite announcements of what
part the provincial governments of
Saskatchewan, Alberta and British
Columbia will have in Die exposition
are expected lo materialize shortly.
Tlie summer vacation season is about
over, and absent members of cabinets
will lie at their posts shortly. These
absences have constituted tho only
bars to action thus (ar, and when
tliey arc removed, speedy action will
bo taken. When these announcements have bevn made, a very great
deal of progress will have been made
toward tlie final realization of the
exposition project. Bountiful harvests In the west, and the really
great interest that everv western
province has in the exposition, warrants lhe ho|»e that the governments
of the three westernmost provinces
will deal liberally wirh the matter ot
exposition appropriations.

Co.'s production of Willard Mack's
splendid comedy of the west, will be
presented at the Auditorium the last
of the month.
The Duluth Evening Herald has the
following to say of this company.
This popular play made one of the
most phenomenal tours on record
last season, opening in Duluth last
September, going east through the
Copper country and down through
Wisconsin, Minnesota; then west,
playing Seattle, Portland, Spokane,
San Francisco, Los Angeles, Salt
Lake City and Denver; then back east
by way of Kansas City and into
Chicago for a run ot three weeks at
the Academy of Music; then east
again, plaving Cincinnati, Baltimore,
Philadelphia, Cleveland, Detroit, and
playing a return engagement in Chicago the latter part of May. The
production and cast is exactly     the
same as presented in these cities last
seasan, and will no doubt meet with
the same splendid success that greeted this excellent play last year.
Frank Patton, who is well known
in the Stales and Canada, and who
created the role ot "Hank" Jones,
will a«*;ain be seen in this quaint part
of tbe old ranchman "from back in
Mu/ouri." The balance ot the cast
is composed of such well-known players as Cecil Kirke. recently of
"Texas," George Thompson, who
has been seen here as Canby in "Arizona," and will play Bossy, and Dean
Selan, who played the part ot Tany,
the Mexican, in the same company,
plays the role of Chug.
Tii*: balance ol the cast is well
The Portland Orcgoman said ol
"In Wyoming," that it will no doubt
eo on forever, the same as 'In Old
Kentucky,' as long as tbe management places the characters of this
splendid piece in the hands ot such
capable actors."

Merrhvell often wus provoking and rndo iu un honest

speechless with Indignation; nevertheless she yielded more
uud more of the reserved womanly love of her nature,

One evening she wns poring over a pile of old magazines tbat a ueighhor hud given her when suddenly Mer-

'I'he nexi dny there wns something of a commotion when
the hungry laborers discovered they were minus it very
good cook. However, a burly German of the motley gang
was pressed into service before they starved. A seiircb
revealed plenty of eatubles buked up, plenty of provisions ready to cook, but no young and attractive widow.
Merriwell was closely questioned, hut to no purpose.
He was evidently as much mystified ns any oue and perhaps a good deal more worried. Kvery fanner ami every
station agent for miles around was on tlie lookout to no
purpose and after weeks bad gone by tin- mystery waa
as deep as ever.
Merriwell grew thin uud gloomy, but he worked harder
thiiti ever and held lhe liking of bis foreman and his fellow laborers, as he had done from the tirsl.
'I'he road waa finished bv tbe hint or October ami tlie
men scattered, hut, seined by Home odd whim, Merriwell determined tu slay on nt Amy's little cottage.   He
had searched Uie two rooms a hundred times iu Ibe vain

three worn dresses hung ill the tiny closet lllld u few plnili

tragic longing and passion of the longer periods.
At lirst he had thought that Amy bud culled the things

was forced on him that they were the children of her
own fancy. He sat and stared at tlie manuscript ill

He paced ihe Iloor in agony. Where had he driven her?
Where—where in the world might be find her?
due day in midwinter a passing neighbor left a pnek-
age for bim. It wus marked "Kor the man tbat lives ut
Grayson's, on the Stale road." Merriwell opened it
apathetically. It was a bonk beautifully bound and
opulent in tinted Illustrations, A card within said;
"Head it for Amy's sake."

A Flyer in Wheat"
How Comets Tails Are Formed.
IT hits long been known that thc tails of comets
eoiislsl of fine particles driven off from them as they
approach Lhe sun, but ihe nature of the force witb
which tliey arc repelled has only recently been discovered. It was ut first suspected that the force was
electric, but It is now fairly certain that it is nothing
more nor less than pressure exerted by thc stiu's rays.
That light exerts a pressure wus first discovered
mathematically, but the delicate Instruments Invented
by I.ebednv, ti Itussiau experimenter, soon showed
that these calculations were correct. This pressure,
long unsuspected, is almost vnnlsbtngly small. How,
then, Is it nble to overcome the force of gravitation
and send the comet's particles spinning away from
tlie sun Instead of toward It? This is easily explained
If wc remember that pressure is exerted only on the
outer surfnee of n body, whereas Its weight depends
on lis entire mass.
When ii body is reduced In size the mass diminishes
much faster than the surface. For Instance, If we
have two similar apples, one of which ts half as thick
as llie other. Hie smaller will have one-fourth the surface of the larger hut only one-eighth the weight.
Hence, tlie smaller the body the nearer the pressure
mi the surface will eome to balancing tbe weight, and
the particles lu comet's (nils are so very small tbat
the light pressure overbalances the gravitation toward the sun. uml hence drives the thin, vaporous substance away.
In the latest comet, the Morehouse, which wu
visible recently, the mil underwent a curious scries of
changes, which Is not an unusual thing. These are
far from ho Ing fully explained, but It Is supposed
that the lulls may lie composed of pnrtlHes of different sizes, which are thus repelled with different velocities, forming branches lu different directions.
A Bait for Alligators
A PINTO Indian of Eastern Tnlmseo adopted a
novel (nethod of catching alligators. The Indian's
wenpipis were a harpoon, u stout club and a cull
of tarred litrtnts. Kor a bail he used a sticking pig.
a l«»x of something which smelled offensively and
several chunks of Imlf roasted meat.
Selecting nn overhanging bough about six yards
from ihe water's edge the Indian stripped off Its
leaves uud suspended from lbe furl, the sipieullug pig.
Tlinl was the ball for the eyes ami cars of lhe alligator.
opening ihe box, he used its offensive contents to
grease a string, one end of which he lied to n bush,
ami, weight lug lhu nthcr with a piece of wood, threw
il into the river.   That was the nose bait.
Iletween Hie lliicket nml lhe water's edge was a
long sn ml duiii, capped with a row of gnarled logs.
Taking the chunks of meat, bo placed them at equal
Intervals between the bench and the rldgo of the
iliiiti. "This is my grub bait," said tlm Indian. "It
will make hltu mount the bniTeen" (barricade),
Stimulating Hie pig with a kick Uiul caused It to
squeal for the next ten minutes, lhe Indian waited In
nmbusli, hai'i u in hand.   Olio end of a long lariat
was fastened to it ami lhe other to a tough elastic
sapling. The sun had set aud It wns growing dark
when a dark object was seen to rise slowly from the
water nud crawl up the dam. The first chunk of
roast bait was gobbled.
"He's smacking bis chops!" chuckled the Indian.
"It's the same one eyed old sinner that owes tue two
pigs, lint he's going |>> pay his debts."
Gobbling the second chunk, the alligator crawled
on, swallowed the third, and at the sight of the hanging pig stopped and glared. Suddenly lie pushed forward and fell into a sandy hollow behind the dam.
Instantly he turned ami headed for the dam. Up
sprang the Pinto ami hurled flic harpoon through his
scaly hide.   "I got you this time!" he shouted.
Jerked back by the tension of the lariat, the alligator made the leaves fly with his switching tall and
would have snapped the rope If the elasticity of the
sapling had not broken the force of his spring ns he
plunged forward again and again.
Seizing the club ami Jumping around the floundering prisoner, the Imllnu dealt htm n wbnek across
the head thut laid bim sprawling on tils bnck. Three
more blows and tbe alligator bad paid his debt.

47 and Ralph found himself wiped out. With a groan
of anguish he left the broker's office a rained man, a defaulter, indebted to the lelegrnph company to the extent
of nearly *2,(i00.
"The big dealers are just trying to shake off the little
ones preparatory to a bull movement," expluhied the sjK'c-
lilator who had consistently bought wheat nt each decline.
Hut of course he hnd ample funds. Rut not so with poor
Itnlph. In the purlance of the "street," it wns a case of
"freeze out" for him.
The hopelessness of despair seized Ralph us hu resumed
his duties at the office the ueit morning and learned that
the auditor had visited a nearby city and might drop In
on him any moment. He knew that there was not the remotest chance of raising $'J.IMNI In a short time. Hlancing
ut the morning paper be saw thut wheut had declined just
fur enough to wipe him out and had then rallied and
closed firm. If he could have only held on for a fraction
longer he would have been safe, us there was every Indication thut the market was ou tbe ere of a strung upward
Hearing his office call and observing Unit the o|H*rutoi-M
were busy he went to the key himself and received a message in cipher addressed to a well known horseman of the
city. Ralph knew the import of this message, knew Ihat
it contained "inside Information," naming a winning liorso
In the day's races. He hud often before received similar
messages and knew that Uie information was III variably
accurate. Ralph was quite an adept at solving puzzles,
and hud often la-fore tried to Hud lhe key to these cipher
messages, tmt without success.
Xow n wild hope seized liim. If he were able to decipher this message he might, by belt lug on Ibe winning
horse, reallzi ough money lo buy wheat ou Its upward
bulge, thus retrleviiiB his losses. He made a copy of the
text of the telegram, which was an unintelligible jumble
of letters, thus:-SS X I I, Y Z G.
Itulph studied long and Intently over the cipher. It
was evident that each letter represent.il some other letter
of the alphabet. He knew that one*, he found the correct
representntion of uny one of the letters it would be comparatively easy to find the others.    Knowing that ou
the uveruge the letter K w ra more frequently than any
other letter of the alphabet ami observing that the letter
Z occurred twice, Ralph experimented on the supposition
thut Z was intended for E, but without obtaining an intelligible result.
He was about to give up the pusile In despair, when
it occurred to him tliat the key to the solution might be
found In the fact that the alphabet was simply reversed
and that Z meant A, the first letter of the alphabet, Instead of the last. He was overjoyed to find his surmise
correct, and the puzzle as deciphered read:—

Thus far Aerobul bad not shown, and Ralph's auxlely

hum of conversation now gave place to excited exclamations as the horses changed positions.
"At the three-quarters! Reliance leads by three
lengths, Renegade second. Acrobat third."
Ah. nt last Acrobat was in the running, and Ralph's
spirits rose correspondingly.
"In Uu- stretch! Reliance first by half ti length. Acrobat second, Bonanza third."
'I'he excitemenl now became Intense, as all listened for

have lo wail for the operator's announcement. The first

Thc miner's inch is a very indefinite-quantity and varies greatly in different couutries. According to Mer-

which will flow from a vertical

** i inches. This amount of water is
approximately 1.53 cubic feet per
minute. In different counties in
California it varies from 1.20 to 1.76
cubic feet per minute. In Colorado
the miner's inch is equivalent lo 1.6
cubic feet per minute. In British

Remember no thought, no word, no
act ever dies.
There is sunshine enough in the
world to warm all.
Thc way to help people is not so
much being good lo them us being
good with them, a sort of co-operative kiminess.
There arc some men who make it a
point to treat every man's wife well
but their own—have smiles to all but
their kindred.
The influence which you start today
iu the home, the neighborhood, or the
social circle, he it ever so small, will
roll forward through the ages, growing wider and deeper and stronger
with every passing hour, and blighting or blessing as it rolls.
In unity thorc is strength. This is
never more true thau iu the home. A
home strong to meet adversity and
thc most adverse circumstances in
life is where tliere is union of hearts
aud union of hamts. There will be
joy in such a home despite dark days
and peace despite the turmoils of
Indolence is uu enemy to home.
Some men are loo la/y to provide
decent conveniences at home, ll is a
time against the happiness of thu
home for a mau lu neglect lo provide
ihe Utile conveniences that will add
lo the beauty and comfort of the
home. Say, brother, take out that
old mildewed pillow ami put in
pane of glass, it is too painful as it
Climb up Ihen ami put the bricks
on the chimney where the storm of
last winter blew them off. Put a
carpet on the floor ami a tew pictures on the wall. Put some guod
books on the shelves, and give your
family a paper or two to road. Study
to make yourself useful, and to rob
home of its bleakness, by providing
things that add tu its comfort ami
brightness. Make the children feel
that home is a Paradise iu which the
thrushes of love ever sing high up in
the clear blue sky of the humble heart
and you will have no fear of turning
out thieves and harlots in years to
lie was wise who wrote: "Halt the
sting ut poverty or of small means is
gone when one keeps house for ones
own comfort and not tor the comment of one's uwn neighbors," Deny
it us we will, few of us have the
mural force to set up a
standard of our own,
based upon our own incomes
aud our uwn particular home environments. We commit the folly of regulating uur expenses by the income
of some one else. If the Browns
aeross the street hang up expensive
lace curtains, we are discontented until lace curtains havu gone up lo uur
windows, no matter how much smaller our income may Im- than that of
the Browns. If the Smiths put down
a velvet carpet, our neat and pretty
ingrain becomes an eye sore to us.
We are extremely mindful of what
our neighbors will think about many
things that ought not to concern
them iu the least. We have no
standard ot our own. Our dress and
even our tables must be regulated by
the standards of others. Wc have
not the courage nor tbe independence
to be indifferent to the comment uf
uur neighbors. This form of moral
cowardice is causing many families to
live beyond their incomes. They can
face debt and forfeit their self-respect easier than they ean face the
unfavorable comment of their friends
and neighbors. The.extent to which
this imitation of others is carried
would be ludicrous did it uot bring
so much unhappiuess in its train. It is
frequently the direct cause of the
discord and discontent and debt that
have driven happiness from the family hearthstone. Let us have a standard of our own, based upon uur own
tastes, uur own incomes, onr own
needs and let us cheerfully and bruv
ly adhere to this standard, heedless
of that dreadful bugbear: "What will
the neighbors say?"
One of the worst foes ot human
life is monotony. The whole human
being, body and soul, rebels against
it. After long residence in one place
the blood begins to run sluggishly;
the appetite fails, thc mind becomes
dull uud the feelings stupefied. Mind
and hody act and react upon one
another. Every physician recognizes
the value of change, not onlv the
change of air and diet, but change uf
surroundings, as a medicine for the
sick. Change of scene stimulates the
mind and heart to activity, and these
reacting ou the hodv rouse it to
greater vitality and effort, until the
whole system is renovated.
It is the mother of a -household
whose life is chiefly threatened bv
monotony. She stays at home. She
is always in the house swing the
same things, hearing the same voices,
doing the same work day after dav.
with endless regularity. The demands upon her time and strength
aud love and patience are increasing,
and the wonder is that sbe does not
break down more fremientlv thnn is
actually the ease. The tact occurs
too often, and in such cases an ounce
of prevention is worth many pounds
of cure.
When mother begins to look hollow-
ovod and weary; when she wakes in
tlic morning unrefrcshed to drag
through a weary dav. then is the
tlmo to send her away, it only for a
short while. Of course she will object. There is the sewing to be done,
the preserves to attend to, and lie-
sides it is impossible to leave thc
children and equally impossible to
ake them with her. Don't listen to
her objections. She has reached thc
point where she is too exhausted to
plan and carry out such an undertaking herself. If she could plan it she
would not need it. But let her husband, whom she has served so faithfully, or the oldest daughter, to
whom she has given her life, arrange
all matters, so she can leave home
with her heart at ease about the
•hildren. Call in some relative or
friend to help to stay with the little
ones, and send the dear, tired mother
as fnr away from home as it is possible lo get her, and keep her away
until she is strong again In nerves
and body.

—sir Henri Taschercau.
In liliiu au Indignation uncling ol
the citizens of .New VurK was held
and "lhe committee uf lifleett"- was
appointed lu investigate and report
un tlie sueial evil in that eity. On
this committee wero sumc of New
link's best citizens aulullg wbuiu
were William 11. Baldwin, Edwin H.
A. Scllgtnan, Mix Adler, Ocurge
Foster 1'eahudv, George 11. Putnam,
and Alvin S. Johnson, the distinguished economist. A thorough investigation ul the methods uf l'aris,
Loudon, Borllii, Vienna and other
lilies was niude. Regulation, segregation, license were calmly studied.
The whole question was tairlv faced.
Wilh what result? The committee
ot llftocn unanimously aud emphaWcaJH
ly condemned ull the methods ui tol-
cratlon or palliation. "Wc recommend," say Ihey, "to those persons
who ate wont to extol Ibis system
(regulation) as a kind uf panacea,
and tu deplore with .something of Impatience and contempt the puritanical
sentiment whicli prevails in this
country and which makes any attempt ' lo introduce such a svstem
impracticable, an attentive study
uf lhe passages in this report relating • lo regulation and its results.
The- will find, un a closer study of
lhe results, that their vaunted panu-
eea is no panacea ut all, and that
their confidence in its merits is far
[rum lieing supported by tbe facts."
These commissioners further recommend, nut the repression ot clandestine prostitution, which they admit
is surrounded with almost insuperable difficulties, hut the vicornus sup-
oression ot public prostitution in all
Its open and cynical manifestations.
Since tiiis report wns mihllshed, a
merciless crusade has lieen waited! In
New York. Pens and dives have
been closed; everybody is satisfied,
nnd Ihe authorities are not reproached wilh having increased clandestine
prostitution by suppressing that

public, nnd which is the most dnn-
ircnius because It is a constant lure

beings and because it is accessible to
In 1005 the lion. iir. Justice Taschercau, now Sir Henri Tuscheicau,

ileliled tu lliis report lut suine uf llis
111I01 uiul ion, und sumc lime ai"o arranged lu have a copy ol it sent to
each member uf uur city couneil. A
recent reprint ul this valuable report
has heeu made find llis llunut Recorder ll. Stanley Weir, senior re-
,oi',icr of Muniicul, has written uu
able Introduction thereto, iu whieh
he endorses Mr. Tasehereau's rccoin-
nieiidaiiuiis and reinforces them with
weighty considerations of his own.
This report thus concludes: "This
policy ul war without mercy, ut energetic repression and complete suppression, once adopted, lt would bu-
comc the duty of the police and
speeial agents, under the leadership ul
lhe chief of pulice, to keep a constant
watch over the street walkers
prevent ut punish witbuut mercy, any
indecent ut suspected solicitation; to
closely watch the old quarters ol
prostitution nnd the new places or
houses where they might have reason
lo believe it could hove taken refuge,
and nut to hesitate in lodging com-
plnints    upon information or discov-
■y of a positive character." '
Surely such a concensus of expert
opinion is sufficient to answer thc
hackneyed objections so often heard,
and Lu persuade the elti'zens ol Cranhrook wlmt the policy o! our authorities should be. j

says that seven-eighths of the food

A horse that was being driven In
a trap at CaiiVtfl Island, Essex, re-
eiiuly, took fright at the sight of 1
cow and climbed tlie sea-wall. Mrs,
Florence 1'oe and her daughter, who
were riding in thu vehicle, were
thrown out, and the horse continued
galloping along the wall, which is
less than four feet wide, for nearly
three miles, ultimately falling with
lhe trap into the mud below. The
tinr.se was not seriously hurt.
At a recent meeting of Ipswich
Hoard of Guardians complaint was
made thut inmates of the infirmary

committee wus requested to report

With eighteen previous convictions
against him, Frederick Smith' was
sent to prison for another year, as
the result of telling a fairy story, to
Bristol working man. The latter,
taken iu hy Smith's plausible talc,
gave bim fifteen pence, all the money

Charles .lames Williams, better
known us the Silver King, was sen-
tiueed in Kiliiiburgb, Scotland, recently lo five years' penal servitude iu
connection witli a series uf burglaries.
Lord Low, in passing sentence, said
Ihat, although only one conviction
was recorded against the prisoner, lie
could not deal with him otherwise
than as a very hardened criminal.
Williams has had a very chequered,
not lo say, romantic, eureer. lie
gained tbe soubriquet ol tlic "Silver
King" in India, where he was dismissed from lhe army as the result
of his behavior. It is stated that he
escaped to the hills with his cotn-
laiiv's pav, und when pursued kept
his pursuers at hay with a ride.
While blowing open a safe with gunpowder in l»nti at Glasgow, Williams
was blown through the window, and,
fulling a distance of thirty feet, was
picked up unconscious by the police in
a courtyard. When he was arrested
recently his residence was found to be
furnished in grand style, aud many
of the articles were identified as the
proceeds of burglaries.

"I wish to correct one or two
false impressions," Mr. Moore remarked iu beginning his address.
•'The Alliance was not an organization to force upon the people any
particular form ol Sabbath observance, as some had reported; hut
simplv to secure for all people one
day hi seven for rest, leaving to the
people, themselves, as to how they
would spend the day, so long as they
did not interfere with the lawful rest
of others." He believed the day
should be the gladdest, happiest uud
most restful and helpful of all the
seven, enhancing Uie value and the
pleasure of the whole week. "This
is what our country's laws stand for;
ami this is what we ure working for
for every class of people, rich and
poor," he affirmed. "The Lotd s Hay
Act has some weaknesses; but they
nre not ou the side of a somber Suh-
bntb," he added. Both the president
tif llie French nation nnd of the United Slates hud, in nlmost Un- same
words, declared thai they regarded
"the Canadian Sabbath law as the
best iu the world." President
Hoosevelt has said in his hearing on
a convention platform before 10,mill
icople: "I wish we had such an organization as thc Canadian Lord's
Dav Alliance in the United iStates

-safeguards the rights ot everv individual -In one day of rest in seven; and
