make the knot, mid aooot'ding in the
j newspaper of the duy, left on Ills honfy
moon with his bride, formerly Miss
Jennie Stark, of this plnce, auifinKii
showei'Mif rice and gooil wishes. The
good wishes were directive enough ns
far as Mr. Hodge's affairs in tlio business world are concerned, for to day
Mr. Hodge is a weahliy mnn, is Sheiill'
of King County, Washington, ami i»
certain to be the next Governor of the
Slate, so his political friends sny, nnd
for which office he is now a candidate.
Matrimonially, however, Mr. Hodge
does not believe that he found a real
soul mate when he met nnd wed a
Cumbsrland maid sixteen long years
ago—at least they seem long to Sheriff Hodge.
Mrs. Jennie Stark Hodge wns served in her apartments in 'Frisco on
Saturday last wilh a summons mul
complsint in a divorce action. The
summons stntes the simple charge of
"abandonment," and Mi's.Hodge states
that she will not tight the petition,
but, says she, ' if he accuses me of
misconduct in any particular, I will
Imve a story to tell."
The case is arousing considerable
newspaper interest in the state of
Washington and it is anticipated thnt
if the Hodges undertake to wash theii
family linen in the courts thnt the divorce proceedings will make sonic
I mighty interesting rending. One of
' the members of Hodge 4 Hodge Unlimited will make no effort to obtain
the custody of Mrs. Hodge's  children.

Last Sunday a junior football lenrn
from Happy Valley came to Cumberland to play thi "Sidesteppers" a gnme
of football, which took place on the
Old Grounds. Much credit is due the
Happy Valley boys for making sueh a
brilliant showing against a learn whicli
has played together for so long.
It must be takon into considerate n,
tno, that I liis is the first time these twn
teams have come together, and the result proves thnt with n few good
prnctices together, they will mnke n
united team, ami Cumherlund will have
to go some to beat them. They are
workers, every one of them, nnd never
play until the whistle blows
The game on Sunday proved a wiu

Successful Nigl)t School
Mr. John Biggs is meeting with
gratifying success in his night
school. Sessions are held two
nights a week. Mr. Biggs is an
experienced mining teacher, holding a first-class certificate. Our
young men who wish to improve
their opportunities in life cannot
do better than attend Mr. Biggs'
classes. Many men have received
an education late in life and owe
a large measure of success to the
night school. No one who has
the desire to improve himself and
better his chances in life, should
fail to do so. The night school
affords an opportunity which
should not be neglected. Call at
the public school building at 7
o'clock on Thursday evening for
further information.
Dr. Bible Lectures
Dr. G. P. Bible, of Philadelphia,
gave a very interesting and instructive address in \m Grace
Methodist Church on Wednesday
evening last. It is to be regretted
that so few turned out on the
first evening to hear him. The
philosophy about which the doctor
spoke calls for more expectant
hearers- those who give the
speaker some spiritual salutation,
some psychic recognition that is
in itself an inspiration. Dr. Bible
is a speaker of great versatility,
embodying in his address some
really funny and and humorous
stories, amongst which he told
the following:
A young lady, not to say an old
maid, had been keeping company
with a young man for some time,
and it began to look as though
there was nothing doing, especially to her girl friends. One day
she announced she had hope.
John had called one evening and
held the family album on his knee,
oh, for a long time. The next
evening he had held her little
sister on his knee. Last night he
had held her little brother on his
lap for an hour. He was coming
to-night, and — aud — well, she
had hope?.
Tha lecture on Thursday evening was much better attended,
and was equal to, if not better,
than on the preceding evening.
Board of Works to See
Work is W.'P And.
Promptly Done
While waiting for the appearance of the hospital board
which was to sit with the council on the isolation hospital
matter, the council took up the
complaints against the night
man. Some of the aldermen
had heen asked if the night
man had quit. It was thought
that much of the trouble arose
from thc fact that 'the night
man had no hoss but was allowed to do his work in his
own sweet way The mayor
thought the night man should
make monthly written reports.
Maxwell was not inclined to
proceed to extremes as- were
some of the otliers, He recollected, some time ago Monaco
had heen dismissed. The new
man had done very Well the
first month. Afterward it had
heen found the better man had
been let go. It was left to the
board of works to direct the
night man and if his work was
uot then satisfactory to procure

of Judge Abrams, president, F,
J. Dalby, seerectary, Ur.Gilles-
pie and W. W. Willard. accompanied hy Health Officer
Dr. MacNaughton, having entered the council chamber,they
were recognized hy the Mayor.
Judge Abrams was the first
speaker. He was very earnest
in his remarks, as wi re all the
speakers, and placed the matter
very ch arl;. < f».i the council.
lle said in part:
Mr Mayor, you are aware,
of course, lhat yourself, the
health officer and Mr. Bever-
idge waited upon the hoard in
lhis matter. It is impossible
lor the board to deal with this
matter alone, because of the
great expense. A building must
he erected and furnished and
this could not lie done for less
than $5,000.00. The hoard is
in no position to deal with the
matter without assistance from
Lhe government und perhaps
from the city. Then comes the
matter of expense in maintenance. Now, with even no patients, it would cost at leasl
$50 00 a. month for maillte
nance, lf the council were disposed to aid with their patients
at so much a head and the government would aid, I believe
we could get along. The population i.s increasing, rapidly in
the logging camps Railways
are beuig built. There are 700
or 800 men ill the vicinity of
Cumberland. We cannot expect always to be free from epidemic, He thought it would he
the ruination of the present
hospital to attempt the isolation hospital without assurance
of help. He would like to hear
from Ur. Gillespie.
Dr. Gillespie said in part; I
cannot say much more than
our president has, and can only
re-iterate his statements and
emphasize them. We have discussed the matter from the hospital point of view but there is
another, the medical standpoint
The. Krospital we.have is-nol adequate for the purpose. In an
epidemic it would not be large
enough for those who Would
go there. You cnunot ex-
expect the families to send children to tho present isolation
hospital; nor until it is properly kept can you expect people
to go there. Referring to the
proposed hospital he said there
must be separate rooms—one
side for scarlet fever and oue
for diphtheria. Then tliere
should be a couple of rooms for
sterilizing purposes, so you see
we cannot put it up and equip
it for less than §5,000. If the
council saw fit to send a delegation it would be unwise to
ask for a cent less than §5000.
He thought the hospital could
not be run for less tnan §150 a
W. W, Willard said he did
not know that he could add to
what had been said. Hecould
not see how the hospital could
be put up for less than §5.000.
It would cost 8150 a month to
run it. The hoard had about
all they could handle to make
ends meet now. He was in favor of sending a Strong delegation. There would he no trouble in getting what they wanted. He had had a talk with
Mr. Manson who said if any-
thit g were wanted here he
would be only too glad to help

The Pythian Sisters are to he
congratulated upon the success of
their dance Monday evening in
Cumberland Hall, given for the
benefit of the Y.M.C.A. Thc
music was good and every one
-was made tc feel that they were
welcome, and the young people
danced as though they enjoyed it.
The refreshments were delightful. The sum taken in as verified
by Ellen Clark, M. of R. and S..
was $90.75. The expenses were:
music and hall, $28.50; sundries,
$9.40; making a total of $37.90,
and leaving a nice little balance
of $02.00, to go to the benefit of

I CAME back home jubilant. Kuth
. at tlrst took tho prospect of my
digging In ii ditch a bit hard, hut
thai was only becauso she contrasted
it with my former genteel employment.
"Why. Klri," I explained, "It's no
more than 1 would have to do lf we
took a homestead out west. I'd ns
soon dig in Massachusetts us Montana."
Sh.- felt of my arm. It's a big nrm.
Then sho smiled. It wus the lust time
she mentioned the subject,
We didn't say anything to the neighbors until the furniture began to go
out. Then the women flocked in and
Kuth was hard pressed to keep our
seoret. I Bat upstairs nnd chuckled as
I heard her replies. She flays It's tho
only time 1 ever failed to stand hy her,
but il didn't seem to me like anything
but a Joke.
"We shall want to keep track uf
you," said little Mrs. Oruver. "Where
shall we address you?"
"Oh, 1 can't toll," answered Itutb,
truthfully enough.
"Are you going Car?"
"Yon.     Oh—a   long,   Ions   way."
That was true enough too. Wo
couldn't have gone farther out of thoir
lives   if   we'd   sailed   for  Australia,
And so thoy kept it up. That night
we made a round of the houses nnd
everyone was very much surprised and
very much grieved, and very curious.
To all their inquiries, 1 made the same
reply; that I was going to emigrate.
Some of them looked wistful.
"Jove," suid Brown, who was with
the insurance company, "but I wish I
had the nerve to do that. 1 suppose
you're going wost?"
"We're going west first," 1 answered.
The road to the station was almost
due  west.
"They say there are great chances
out in that country." he said. "It Isn't
ao overcrowded as here."
"1 don't know about that," 1 answered, "hut there arc chunces enough."
Some of tho women cried and all the
men shook hands cordially and wished
us good luck. Uut It didn't moan much
to me. The time I needed their handshakes was gone. I learned Intel- that
as a result of our secrecy I was variously credited with having lost my
reason with my job; with having inherited a fortune, with having gambled
in the market, with, thrown In for good
measure, a darker hint ubout having
misappropriated funds of the United
Woollen. But, somehow, their nastiest
gossip did not disturb me. It had no
power to harm either me or mine. 1
was already beyond their reach. Before I left I wished them all Godspeed
on the duinty Journey they were making in their cockleshell. Then so far
ns they were concerned I dropped' off
into the sea with my wife and boy.
We Prospect
We were lucky in getting into a new
tenement and lucky in securing the
top flour. This gave us easy access
to the flat roof five stories above the
street. From here we not only had
a magnificent view of the harbor, but
even on the hottest days felt something of a sea breeze. Coming down
hore in June we appreciated that before tho summer was over.
The street was located half a dozen
blocks from tho waterfront and was
Inhabited almost wholly by Italians,
save for n Frenchman on the corner,
who ran a hake-shop. The street itself was narrow and dirty enough, but
it opened Into a public square whieh
was decidedly picturesque. This was
surrounded by liny shops and foreign
hunks, and was always alive with color
and incident. The vegetables displayed
on the sidewalk stands, the gay hues
of the women's gowns, the gaudy kerchiefs uf the men, gave it a kaleidoscopic effect that made it as fascinating to us as a trip abroad. The section was known as Little Italy, and
so far as we were concerned was as
interesting as   Italy  itself.
There were four other families In
the house, but thc only things we
used in common were the narrow iron
stairway leading upstairs and the roof.
The other tenants, however, seldom
used the latter at all except to hung
out their occasional washings. For
the first month ur so wc saw little of
these people. We were far too busy
to make overtures, and as for tbem
they let us severely alone. Tbey were
nol noisy, and except for a sick baby
on the first floor we beard little of
thom above the clamor of the street
bolow. Wo had four room.".. The front
room we rave to the boy, tho next
room wo ourselves occupied, tho third
room wo usod for a Bitting and dining-
room, whllo the fourth was a small
kitchen with running water. As compared with our house the quarters at
flrsi seemed cramped, but we had
cut down om* furniture to what was
absolutely essential, and uh sunn as
our eyos ceased miking the comparison we were surprised lo find how
comfortable wo wore. In tbe dining-
room, for Instance, we had nothing hut
three chairs, a folding table and a
closet for tbe dishes. Lounging chairs
nnd so forth wo did away with altc
gether. Nor wns there any need of
making provision fnr possible guests.
Here throughout the whole house was
tin- greatost saving. I took a fierce
pleasure at first In thus caring for my
own alone.
The boy's room contained a cot, a
chnlr, a rug and a few of his personal
treasures; our own room contained
just the hod, chair ami wnshslund.
Ruth added a few touches with pic-
tim-s and odds and ends that took off
the bare aspect without cluttering up.
In two works the:'e scant quarters
were every whit as much home as our
tidy Utile house had been. That was
Ruth's pnrt in ft. She'd make a home
uut of ii prison.
On the second day we were fairly
settled, and that night after tbe boy
had gone to bed Kuth sat duwn at my
bido with a pad und pencil In her hand.
"Billy," sho said, "there's ono thing
we're going lo do in this new beginning: we're going to suve—if It's only
ten cents a week."
I shook my heud doubtfully,
"I'm all,ud you can't until I get a
raise," 1 said.
"We tried waiting fur raises before,"
she answered.
"I know, but "
"There aren't going tn he any buts,"
she answered decidedly.
"But six dollurs a week—"
"Is six dollars a week," she broke
lu. "We must live on five-fifty, that's
"With steak thirty cents a pound?"
"We won't have steak. That's the
point. Our neighbors around hore
don't look Btnrvod, nnd they have larger families than ours. And tbey don't
even   buy   Intelligently."
"Ilow do you know that?"
"I've bcen watching them at the
Utile stores In the square. They pay
there us much for half-decayed stuff
us they'd havo to pay fur fresh odds
and ends at the big market."
She rested ber pad upon hcr knee.
"Now In the flrst place, Billy, we'ro
going to live much more simply."
"We've never been extravagant," I
"Not in a wny," she answered slowly,
"but In another way wo have. I've
been doing a lot of thinking in the
last few dnys and I see now where
we've had a groat many unnecessary
"Not fur the last few weeks, anyhow,"  I said.
"Those don't count. But bofore that
I mean. For instance there's coffee.
It's a luxury. Why we spent almost
thirty cents a week on that alone."
"I know but—"
"There's another but. There's no
nourishment in coffee and we can't
afford It. We'll spond lhat money for
milk. We must have good milk and
you must get it for me somewhere up
town. I don't like the looks of the milk
around here. That will be eight cents
a day."
"Belter have two quarts," I suggested.   She thought a moment.
"Ves," she agreed, "two quarts, because that's going to be the basis of
our fond. That's a dollar twelve cents
a week."
She made up a little face at this. I
smiled grandly.
"Now for breakfast we must have
oatmeal every morning. And we'll get
it in bulk. I've priced It and It's only
a little over three cents a pound at
sume of the stores."
"And thc kind we've always had?"
"About twelve when it's done up ln
packages. That's about the proportion
by whieh 1 expect to cut down everything. But yuu'll have to eat milk on
it instead of cream. Then we'll use
a lot of potatoes. They are very good
baked for breakfast. And with them
you may have salt fish—oh, there are
a dozen nice ways of fixing that. And
yuu may have some griddle cakes and
—you wait and see tlic things I'll give
ynu for breakfast. Yuu'll have to have
a good luncheon, of course, but we'll
have our principal meal when you get
back from work at night. But you
won't get steak. When we do get meat
we'll buy soup bones and moat we can
Wil, And instead of pies and cakes
we'll have nourishing puddings of
cornstarch and rice. There's another
good point—rice. It's cheap and we'll
have a lot of it. Look at how the Japanese live on it day af'.er day and keep
fat and strong. Then there's cheap
fish; rock cod and such to make good
chowders of or to fry In pork fat liko
the bass and trout I usod to have back
home. Then there's baked beans. We
ought to have them at least twice a
week lu tbe winter. But this summer
we'll live mostly on fish and vegetables.
I can got them fresh at the market."
"If sounds good," I said.
"Just you wait," she cried excitedly.
"I'll fntten up both you and tho boy."
"And yourself, little woman," I re-
mlnded her. "I'm not going to take
tho snving nut of you."
"Don't you worry about me," she
answered. "This will bo easier than
tbe other life. \ shan't have to worry
about clothes or dinners ur parties
for the boy. And It isn't going to take
any time at all to keep these four
rooms clean and sweet."
I took tho rost of the week as a sort
of vacation and used it lo get acquainted with my m-w surroundings.
It's a fact thnf this section of tho cily
whieh for twenty years had boon within a short walk of my olliee was as
foreign to me us Europe, 1 had never
before been down here and all I knew
about It was through tho occasional
head-linos in the papers in connection
with stubbing affrays. Fnr thc first
iluy or twu 1 felt ns though I nught to
carry a revolver. Whenever I wns
forced to leave Ruth nlune In tho house
1 Instructed her upun no circumstances
to open  lhe duor.    The  boy nnd I ar-
ranged a secret rap—an Idea that
pleased him mightily— and until she
hoard the single knock followed by
two quick sharp ones, she was not lo
answer. But In wandering around
among these peoplo It was dillicult to
think of them as vicious. Tho Italian
element was a laughing, Indolent-appearing group; the scatfered Jewish
folk wore almost timid and kept very
much fo themselves. I didn't find a
really tough face until I camo to tho
wator front whero they spoke English.
On tbe third morning aftor a breakfast of oatmeal and hot biscuit—and,
by tbe way, Ruth effected a fifty per
cent, snving right here by using the
old-fashioned formula of soda nnd
cream of tartar Instead of baking powder—and baked potatoes, Ruth ami the
boy and myself started on an exploring trip. Our Idea was to get a line
on just what our opportunities wero
down  hero and  to  nose out the best
and cheapest places to buy. The thing
that impressed us right off was the
big advantage we had In being within
easy uccess nf the big provision centres. We were within ten minutes'
walk of the market, within fifteen of
the wuter front, within Ihree of the
square und within twenty of the department stores. At all of these places
we found special bargains fur tho day
made lo attract In town thuse frum a
distance. If ono rose early and reached Lhom about as soon as they were
opened une could often buy things n-l-
most ut cost und sometimes below cost.
For Instance, we went up town to ouo
of the largest but cheaper grado department stores—wo hud heard Its
name fur years but had never bcen
Inside tbo building—nnd we found that
In their grocery department they had
special mark-downs every day In tho
week for a limited supply of goods. We
bought sugar this day at a cent, a
pound less than tbe market price nnd
good beans for two cents a quart less.
H sounds at flrst like ralher picayune
saving but 11 counts up at the end uf
the year. Then every stall In tbo
market had lis bargain of meats-
wholesome bits but unattractive to
the careless buyer. We bought here
for fifty cents enough round steak for
several good meuls of hash. We couldn't have bought it for less than n dollar In tho suburbs and even at that
we wouldn't have known anything
about it for tbe store was too fur for
Ruth to make a personal visit and the
butcher himself would never have
mentioned such an odd end to a member of our neighborhood.
We enjoyed wandering around this
big market which in itself was like a
trip to another land. Later one of our
favorite amusements was to come
duwn here at night and watch the hustling crowds and the lights and tbe
pretty colors and confusion, lt reminded Ruth, she said, of a country
fair. Sho always carried a pad and
pencil and made notes of good places
to buy. I still have those and am referring to thom now os I write this.
"Blanks," she writes (I omit the
name, "nice clean store with pleasant
salesman.    Has good soup bones."
Again, "Blank and Blank — good
place to buy sausage."
Here, too, the market gardeners
gathered as early as four o'clock with
their vegetables fresh from the suburbs. They did mostly a wholesale
business hut If one knew how It was
always possible to buy of them a cabbage or a head of lettuce or a few apples, or a peck of potatoes. They
were a genial, ruddy-cheeked lot and
after a while they come to know Ruth.
Often I'd go up there with her before
work and she with a basket on hor arm
would buy for the day. It was always, "Good morning, miss," In answer to her smile. They were respectful whether I was along or not.
But for that matter I never knew anyone who wasn't respectful to Ruth.
They usod to like to see ber come, I
think, for she stood out In rather
marked contrast to the bowed figures
of the other women. Later on tbey
used to save out for hcr any particularly choice vegetable they might have,
She insisted, however, In paying them
an extra penny for such things.
From the market we went down a
series of narrow streets which led to
the water front. Here thc vessels from
the Banks come in to unload. The air
was salty and though to us at first
the wharves seemed dirty wc got used
to them after a while, and enjoyed
the smell of the fish fresb from tho
Seeing whole push carts full of fish
and watching them handled with a
pitch fork as a man tosses hay didn't
whet our appetites any, but when we
remembered that It was these same
ilsh—a day or two older,—for which
we had been paying double the price
charged for them here Hie difference
overcame our scruples. Tbe men here
interested me. I found that while the
crew of every schooner numbered a
goodly per cent, of foreigners, still
the greater pnrt were American born,
Thc newcomers as a rule bought small
launches uf iheir own and went into
business for themselves. The English
speaking portion of the crews were also, asNx rule, the rougher clement. Tbe
loafers and hangers-on about the
wharves were also English speaking.
This was a fact that later on I found
to be ralher significant and to hold
true in a general way in all branches
of tbe lower class of labor.
The barrooms about here—always a
pretty sure Index of the men of any
community—were moro numerous and
of decidedly a rougher character than
those about tbe square. A man would
be a good deal bettor Justified in carrying a revolver on this street than
ho would In Little Italy. I never allowed liuth to come down here alone.
From hero we wandered buck nnd I
found u publio playground and bathhouse by tbe water's edge. This attracted me at once. I Investigated
this and found It offered a fine opportunity for bathing. Little dressing-
rooms were provided and for a penny
a man could get a clean towel and
for five cents a bathing suit. There
was no reason that I could seo, however, why wc shouldn't provide our
own. lt was within an easy ten minutes of the flat and I saw right then
where I would get a dip every day.
It would be a great thing for the boy,
too. I had always wanted him to
learn to swim.
On the way home wo passed through
tho Jewish quarter nnd I made a noto
of tbe clothing offered for sale here.
The street was lined with second-hand
stores with coats and trousers swinging over the sidewalk, nnd the windows wero filled with odd lots of shoes.
Then too, there were tho pawnshops.
I'd always thought of a pawnshop ns
not being exactly respectable and had
lho fooling that anyone who secured
anything from them was in a way
a receiver of stolen  goods.    But  ns 1
passed them now, I received a new
Impression. Thoy seemed, down here,
us legitimate a business ns the second-
band stores. Tbe windows offered an
assortment of everything from watches
to banjoes and guns, but among them
1 also noticed mauy carpenter's tools
and sn forth. That might bo a useful
thing tu remember.
It was odd bow in a day our point of
view had changed, lf I had brought
Kuth and tho buy duwn through here
a month before, we would all, I think,
have been more Impressed by the congestion and the picturesque details of
the squalor thnn anything else. We
would have picked our way gingerly
and Ruth would have sighed often In
pity, nnd, cnmparlng the lives of these
ppople with our own, would probably
have made an extra generous contrl
butlon to thc Salvation Army tho next
time they came round. I'm not saying
now lhat Ibere isn't misery enough
there and In every llko section of
every elty, but I'll say that ln a great
many cases the snme peoplo who
grovel in tho filth hero would grovel
In a different kind of filth If thoy had
ten thousand a year. At that you can't
blame them greatly for they don't
know any better. But when you learn,
us I learned later, that sumo of the
proprietors of these second-band
stores and fly-blown butcher shops
hnve sons In Harvard and daughters
In Wcllesley, It makes you think. But
I'm running ahead.
The point wuh that now that we felt
ourselves in a way one of theso people
and viewed the street not from the superior height of native-born Americans but just as emigrants, neither the
soiled clothes of the Inhabitants nor
the cluttered street swarming with
laughing youngsters impressed us unfavorably at all. The impassive men
smoking cigarettes ut their doors looked contented enough, the women were
not such as to excite pity, and lf you
noticed, there were as many children
around the local soda waler fountains
ns you'd And ln a suburban drug store.
They nil had clothes enough and appeared well fed and if some of tbem
looked pasty, the sweet stuff In the
stores was enough to nccount for that,
At any rate we came back to our
flat that day neither depressed nor
discouraged but decidedly In better
spirits. Of course we had seen only
the surface and I suspected that when
wo really got into these lives we'd
find a bad condition of things. It must
be so, for that was the burden of all
we read. But we would have time
enough to worry about that when we
discovered It for ourselves.
(To be continued).
The reported new order from the office of Doctor Wiley, in Washington,
that artificially fattened, or "floated,"
or "drunken" oysters shall not be sold
in interstate commerce, will bo opposed by the oystermen, notwithstanding
the famous government chemist's declaration, which accompanied his decision, that the process of fattening bivalves in fresh water ls injurious to the
public health.
The Impending flgbt, which will probably be led by William H. Chew, will
be the second that the oyster farmers
have made upon Doctor Wiley, the first
one being a year ago, when they contended with him upon tho samo issue
and won.
This time, however, It ls declared by
Doctor Wiley's friends, the chemist Is
backed by fact3 gathered by government investigators, nnd he Is ready to
prove that the fresh-water-fattened
oyster is only a bloated, disease-bearing and dissolute substitution for the
real nnd healthful salt-water production.
Believable reports from Washington
are to the effect that Doctor Wiley has
rescinded the straddle order No. 126
and renewed the stringent No. 110
order that no oyster tnken from salt
water and fattened in fresh water
streams is to be sold beyond the confines of the state in which it Is so fattened. Already It is known that Mr.
Chew is at work among the oystermen
giving out information, and a large
delegation of these oystermen Is expected at the state house in tbo near
future to protest against such action
by the federal government.
For many yenrs the practice of fattening oysters by placing them In
rivers and then giving the bivalves a
salt-water bath to renew the lost taste,
has been looked upon as a legitimate
business. Some 10,000 men are engaged In the occupation. But, within
the last five years chemical analysis
has proved that those oysters are fattened on nothing else than the bacilli
in tho fresh water und whlcb are absent from tho salt water. Doctor
Wiley took stops to properly safeguard
lho health of tbe oyster-loving public
by warning tho department of agriculture against the condition, nnd order
No. 110 was the result.
Influence, political and otherwise,
won the fight against the order last
Agents from Doetor Wiley's bureau
have been making tests at various
points on tbe const for several months.
The result, according to thoso who
know of the Investigations, has boon
to confirm Doctor Wiley In his belief
that the "big salts" sold over the counters of the big cities are gcrm-ladcn
and dangerous to the hon Ith of thc consumer.
"Ten thousand men engaged ln the
Industry wlll he affected," ls to.be tho
plea of the oyster farmers In their
fight on Wiley's order, which Is similar to the cry raised by all adulterated
food dealers whon Doctor Wiley set
about enforcing the law.
One of the contentions of Doctor
Wiley's friends and admirers ls that
the Industry Is the result of a built-up
demand by the oystermen for large
salt-water oysters, nnd that before the
process was begun no one thought of
big bivalves. All were content to eat
the genuine salt-water oyster, they say,
and the public will eat Just as many
nysters, and more, If they are the reul
thing, and will hall with delight tho
assurance tbat. "drunken" oysters nre
no longer nn tbo market.

A bank employee named Chouet, who

He had scarcely put his foot outside the door of tho bank when two
armed men with revolvers sprang upon him.
One seized him by the throat, while
his companion struck him over the
head wllh tho butt end of his revolver,
knocking hltn senseless to the ground.
The pair then proceeded to rifle his
pockets and the satchel In which he
nlso carried a sum of monoy.
This nil took place ln broad daylight
and In the middle of a much-frequented public thoroughfare. The two
thieves succeeded In possessing themselves of $10,000. Then upon their being detected they nbundnned the search
for tbe remainder of the money and
made off.
A coachman In tho employ of a locul
doctor, whu hnd witnessed lhe nssault,
gave the alarm, and when the pair
made off the coachman, whipping up
his horso, started in pursuit. A general
hue and cry was raised. Gendarmes
and civilians armed wilh a miscellaneous collection of weapons joined ln the
oho so.
The robbers had obtained a good
start, but tho pursuers outran nnd finally overtook them. One of lhom, finding himself nbout to be captured, turned and fired several limes at the nearest gendarme. Fortunately, his aim
was bad, and the bullets went wide.
The crowd closed In, and on thc gendarmes threatening to mnke use of

The event that most stirred the
world was Napoleon's Invasion of
Russln, followed by the awful retreat
uf his ruined army, Wo all of ue
have read the story so often ln the
pages of Segur, De Fozensao and
others who lived through the strenuous advance and tho tragical retreat,
that wo seem to be perusing the account of a moving tule of yesterday.
Historians are writing of the Russian
campaign slill, digging new facts out
uf tho snow that covered Napoleon's
legions. They recognize that he
eume very near attaining the Ideal of
his ambition, the unquestionable mastery of Continental Europe. Augusle
Fournier, the Austtiun, thinks there
wus a moment when lf Napoleon bad
halted his army this side of Moscow
and organized his occupation, Russia
Would have been compelled to sue for
pence, and tho Corslcan would have
been lord paramount of the Western
World. Only Grent Britain eould
have kept up tho struggle then, and
not for long, with the resources of
Russia, Austria, Prussia uud ull Ger-
muny ut Napoleon's call. To put down

Thackeray says, a templing exerciso
of the Imagination, Our ancestors of
1818 hnd seen the map of the world
so frequently 'corrected with the
sword that they hnd become chary of
giving their speculative faculties play.
Tbey knew that Napoleon had mustered for the Invasion the largest army
over commanded by une man of which
modern history made record. Whether
Its effective strength approximated
000,000, as contemporaries thought, or
whether, us today's historians calculate, It did not much exceed 450,000 of
ull ranks, it was a portentous host to
tho people of 1812, whether they were
spectators of its operations or whether tbey learned of tbem as neutrals
or ns the inhabitants of lunds safeguarded by the sen ngainst Napoleon's
clutch. Napoleon's army, fur it was
by no moans all French, ami Included
Gorman, Prussian, Austrian, Italian,
Polish and even Portuguese contingents, crossed the Nlemen June 24,
two days after (be formal declaration
of war. and began its lung inarch on
Moscow, 550 miles distant.
"Foredoomed to dogs and vultures
That gallant army came."
Its route carried It to several battlefields. The most famous of the
battles lt fought was Borodino, Sept.
7, one of the bloodiest of modern
times. Within a week Napoleon bad
entered Moscow, only to encounter In
the famous conflagration, Sept. 14,
fierce evidence of the undying determination to resist him to the last and
with agencies to wblch only tbe most
heroic self sacrifice would resort.

Influence tho imagination of the world
to this day, for many believe thut
they drove the Invaders out of the
city, whereas tbey remained amid tbe
ruius for a month. It was not until
Oct. 15 that tbe French evacuation began, the opening chapter of the Iliad
of French woes. When Napoleon on
December 5 left his skeleton host to
make a hurried journey to Paris, nothing remained of the army he had led
across lhe Nlemen almost six months
before, save Invalids, and here and
thero groups and detachments, aggregating a few thousands in all, who had
kept a semblance of their organization.
Tho blow to his prestige was grievous.
He never rallied from ft, for though
he took tho field the next spring with
an army formidable in numbers and
still more formidable in his genius,
tbo groat coalition ho controlled perished In tbe Russian snows. Those
who hnd been with him previous to
Moscow turned against lilm. His unwilling allies became his willing foes,
ami within sixteen months of Borodino
he had abdicated. From lho evacuation of Moscow to the land at St.
Helena was but three years.
The tests of li. Werner and others
have proved that ordinary physical bodies havo an offect on photographic
plates. As it was suspected that this
might bo due to radioactive action, Dr.
Albert Caan of Heidelberg made extensive tests, investigating tho radioactivity of thc human organs, by
means of tlic Bercker Email quieter.
This instrument gives account of
every emanation and radioactive action
and eonsists in the main of u shaking
tank and an electric measuring Instrument connected with each other by a
rubber tithe and electric wires. The
measuring Instrument is a Wulf wiro
electrometer connected to a 800-volt
storage battery, and a powerful micro-
scope through which readings are taken.
Dr. Caan examined fnrtyoue different
organs, coming from twelve di florent
persons, reducing about 100 grains of
each organ to ashes, and placing it into the manometer. In every case he
found the presence of a substance,
which made tho air olootrlcally conductive, Whether this substance Is
identical with radium, cannot bo Bald
with certainty. But nil indications
point to the conclusion that the substance is radioactive, The activity of
the bruin is especially high, the heart
and liver nre less active, and the kidneys nnd spleen are almost entirely inactive; the lungs ngain show great
Social position, calling, life and tho
location from which individuals como
have very little influence on tho radioactivity of tho organs. Increasing age
increases the quantity of raldoactlvo

As regards tho origin of the radioactive substance seemingly present this
might como from the food and drink
or else from tlio air inspired. Roth
hypotheses eould be harmonized with
the phenomenon of increasing radioactive substance with growing age. No
onclusioti can as yet be reached as to
the role of radioactive substances in
the vital activity of tho cells of the human body. f

Is the modern horso to he superseded? The foregoing question is a
very pertinent one, nnd Is worthy of
sume consideration by breeders and
owners of animals of tho equine tribe.
By a process of evolution due to
changes of environment and different
systems of breeding—in -breeding, line-
bt-oodlng, and cross-breeding—widely
diversified types of the family Equldue
have resulted. Each of thoso many
types Is well suited for one or more
special features of the muny complicated and Intricate workings necessary
for the most rapid advancement of
human endeavor. Yet, with ull his
usefulness nnd all his matchless animal beauty, which huvo been nttulned
through nnos of careful breeding and
management, wo hour lt whispered
that modern Inventions are about to
wrest from "our faithful friend" his
exulted push Ion In the pleasure and
power of the world. Is It possible

matters of history, is sntnewlmt speculative, but In face of all that hns beon
suld In concurrence with thc belief
that the horse must go, It must be
admitted that there Is still very substantial ground for the opinion that
tho high-water mark of horse - bred-
Ing has nol yet boen reached, and that
tho business will flourish and increase
ln magnitude us years go on.
The evolution of the modern horse
from the primitive prehistoric species
hns required ages. The first horses
whicli showed any degree of improvement woro owned by the wealthy, and
they were flrst used In the day? of
war and chivalry. With these, th
woro also used ln the chase. Africa
and Asia were the flrst to adopt tno
horse for these purposes, and in clvill
zatlon gradually trended westward, the
horse spread with it, and gradually his
usefulness increased. It is a matter
of some curiosity to note that agrlcul
ture was the last use to which the
horse was put. Is it very likely that
anything which has taken so many
centuries to improve and establish as
has the horse will decline and dlsap
pear because of unparalleled advance
ment of the Inventor's genius? It is
scurcely conceivable that the results of
all the labors of horse-breeders could
be hastily abandoned, more so when It
ls a recognized fact that many avenues
for Improvement are still open to the
breeder. The best specimens of the
modern horse may rightly be considered high-class animals, still perfection has not been reached, and never
can It be; but Improvement Is always
possible. As soon as there ls opportunity for Improvement, there will be
suflicient fascination in the business
to keep large numbers engaged in it,
and this will serve tu maintain the demand und warrant the continuance of
the business Indefinitely.
What has been tho effect exerted
upon tho horse business by the Introduction of other powers nnd means of
conveyance In the past? Have they
permanently Injured the horse's position in the affairs of man? We
think not. They may huvo had more
or less of a locul or transient effect,
but no lasting injury to horse-breeding
resulted. Man. in his desperate efforts to accomplish, as fur as possible,
that which ls beyond his power—the
annihilation of time nnd space—succeeded in producing tho steam engine,
which has made rapid transit of both
freight and people possible; the telegraph and telephone have come to do
away with much travel which was formerly necessary; the electric car robbed thousands of horses of the means
of earning their dally hay and oats;
and now the automobile and the conquest of the air are combining their
efforts with those formerly mentioned
to bring ubout the downfall of the
horse. Not only, are theso factors
working against him in city and country, but steam, gasoline, electric and
other powers aro lined up in formidable array against his prestige on the
farm, where ho has for tho past three-
quarters of a century been the solution of tho power problem. And yet,
today, with the results of tho work of
tho brainiest Inventors and the most
skilled mechanics against him, steam,
electricity, gas, gasoline, nnd even
wings, wo And the horse in greater demand than over hefore; und while
prices of other motive powers descend,
the horse soils higher und higher. 1*
this not a significant fact, and does
it not foretell a brilliant and profitable future for tho horse breeding
While horseless drnys increase yearly in number, they are not increasing
as rapidly as Is the volume of dray
business. Heavy horses must still
be used In great numbers in lho largo
cities, The draft horse, notwithstanding the advent of electricity, steam
and other powers on the farms, will
continue to be for years to come the
common, reliable and infallible power
on the farm.

The spirited stepper gives the average man much more satisfaction than
the "Honking" auto, particularly after
the novelty has worn off. Controlling
something which can understand and
comply with man's wishes will ever
prove moro enjoyable than the mere
turning of a metal wheel and the pulling of a lever. It is "life" itself which
mun Joys ln controlling, and nd form
of animal life offers more to his liking
than the horse. High-steppers are in
greater demand In this ugo than over
before, and are selling for hig.ior
prices. This docs not look much like
an age of horseless carriages In the
near future.
The race-horse, whether he be saddle or sulky, Is uh popular as ever. Ascot, Newmarket, the Woodbine und the
Grand Circuit courses druw larger
crowds each yoar. This provos that.
for sport, as well as pleasure, the horse
can hold hla pluce. Aeroplane exhibitions and auto races draw lurge
Crowds, but tbey are not depleting the
attendance at thc annunl horse races,
whero, year by year, time Is clipped
from tho records. Crowds demand
"Thrillers" In this age, but the half-
minute speed of the racing auto
creates no more Interest, If as much,
than does the exciting finish of the
tWO-mlnute trotters or the speedy runners. Those horsos sell for very high
prices, and, as records are broken,
theso prices will advance. Nothing
will take lho place of a fast horso in
lhe eyes of tho racing world.

that cannot woll be reached by the Inventor's products. The graceful driver will for years be the means of
short-distance travel for the majority
of peoplo. He Is fairly speedy, and
cnn endure long drives. His value Is
such as to put him within the reach
of those who cannot afford an automobile or a very fancy carriage horse,
consequently, his position is Impregnable, and, while the demand Is not so
great as for somo of the other classes,
it Is steady, and his future is assured.
The general-purpose horse also fills a
position not likely to be seriously Injured hy power projects. He, too, by
virtue of his many uses and his reasonable price, fills a want which will withstand the advances of his mechanical
Even the diminutive pony has his

No miniature automobile or aeroplane
eould be safely handled as a means of
conveyance by children; and if It eould
lt is doubtful whether they would derive as much real enjoyment from It as
they get from earing for, petting, riding and driving their favorite Shetland,
Welsh or Hackney pony. The pony's
position ls safe as long as children play
on earth.
Weather conditions, together with
the state of rhe public highways, which
results from this and other causes,
make It practically Impossible to replace the horse. Ho can be rolled upon to go at nil timos, and dlfllculties
Insurmountable to ether powers and
means of conveyance are easily overcome by him. He can always "get
there," though tho motor may fall,
This aids materially is strengthening
his stronghold.
Concluding, then, that from the
viewpoint of actual utility in the
world's economy, lho horse's future ls
safe, and that this i" strengthened by
tho favor in which he Is held by the
world's population ln various sports, in
stylish turnouts, and as n means of
pleasing the children and instilling Ir-
tn their minds a love for animals generally, one cannot but think that, no
matter what strides the horseless carriage and powers other than horse
power may make (and thoy will make
muny), horse-breeding will continue to
he practised on a larger scale than
ever, and, provided the right class of
horse is bred, it will continue to be profitable. With the rapidly-increasing
need of power and means of locomotion
due to Increasing population and the
rush of the times, there is room for
both the horse and his competitors, and
the present-dny horse-breeders need
have liltle fenr for the future of their
"favorites" and the safety of horse-
breeding as a business.

Tho experience of tho Cliineso with
opium shatters the comfortable doctrine that organized society need not
concern itself with bnd private habits.
Tha hand of government was withhold
for a long timo iu China, and if any
salutary principle of self-limitation
lurked in tlio opium vice it ought to
lmvo declared itself long ago. If it
were in tlio nn turn of opium-smoking
to confine its ravages to fools and weaklings, if, out of each generation, it killed off tliu two or three/ por cent, of
least foresight or feeblest self-control,
it might bo lookod upon ns the winnower of chaff; and society might snfo-
ly concodo a man tho right to go to
tho devil in his own way and at his
own pnec. But tho vice is not so discriminating, Liko a gangrene, it nte
leeper nnd deeper into the social body,
spreading from weak tissue to sound till
the very future of the Cliineso race
was nt stake. Now, liquor is to us
what opium is to tho yellow man. If
our public opinion and laws hud bcen
so long inert with respect to alcohol
ns China has been with respect to opium, we might have suffered quite as
severely as have the Chinese. The lesson from the Orient is that when so-
iety realizes that a destructive privato
habit is eating into its vitals, the question to consider is not whether to attack that habit, but howl
Tho fight for the physical, mental and
social emancipation of womon, however, while no less important, has been
much less prolific of results. The bondage of women in the Chinese Empire
is perhaps more degrading than in any
other part of the world. It is no passive or intangible or imaginary thing,
but deliberate and positive and real, as
the universal practice of foot-binding
amply attests.
The Ilakka women of Southern
Kwungtung do not bind thoir feet. In
Canton, only the daughters of the well-
to-do follow the custom. You can go
thenco up the West River five hundred
miles and never sec u woman hobble.
In the extreme north of China again,
the Manehu women leavo the foot natural, and this is why they are bo big,
healthy, and comely. In the rest of
the Empire, foot-binding has been not
tho folly of the idle, uor thc fad of the
fashionable, but a custom that bore upon all classes, poor and rich alike. At
Kalgan, on the Mongolian frontier, the
field women work kneeling, with great
puds ovor the knees to protect them
from the damp soil. In three districts
in Kansu, women arc still crawling
about their .houses upon tlieir knees,
reduced to the locomotion of brutes to
please the perverted taste of men! In
Shansl and Shensi women wielded tho
sickle, not stooping—that would hurt
their poor feot too much—but sitting,
aud hitching themselves along as they
reaped. Tho women had to be carried
to tho wheat field on wheelbarrow or
cart, and thoir helplessness is such that
most of thom never In their lives get n
mile awny from the house to which they
were taken as brides.
It is a saying among the Chinese:
"For each pair of bound feet there has
been shed a tubful of tears." Tho
bandaging begins between the fifth
and seventh years, nnd for a period of
about three years, until tho deformity
is practically complete, the littlo girls
suffer excruciating agony.
"During these throe   years,"   Bays
Mrs. Littlo, who founded tho Natural
Foot Society fifteen yoars ngo, "tho
girlhood of China presents a most melancholy spectacle.      Instead of a hop,
skip,  and   a   jump,   with   rosy  checks
like   the   littlo  girls  of   England,   thc
poor littlo things are leaning heavily
ou a stick somewhat smaller than themselves, or carried on a man's back, or
sitting, sadly crying.     They have greut
black lines under their eyes, ami a special curious paleness that I have never
seen   except   iu   connection   with  foot-
binding.     Tlieir  mothers mostly sleep
with a big stick by the bedside, with [
which  to  get  up  ami   beat,  tho   little,
girl  should  she disturb tlio household
by her wails; but not uncommonly she.
is put tu sleep  in an outhouse.     Thu ■
only relief she gets is either from op- I
ium or from hanging hcr foot over the !
edge of lier wooden bedstead so ns toi

Hero tho co-Operation of tho Imperial Government wus secured, Tho Em-1
press Dowager a few years ago com-1
inauded tho people to abandon it. But;
the war against it has not been so aggressive nor so bitter as that ngainst
opium. The appeal has been largely
ono of passive education, and consequently, while tho common-sense of un- j
binding appeals to a large numbor of
the people, they nre held back by tho
fenr of running counter to what their!
neighbors might think, that dreaded '
thing called "public opinion." Speaking broadly, tho reform has not reached further than thc cities and the higher classes, Much of the open country
is not yet awn re that there is sueh a

will have been a struggle to erect it.
Thu action of the council Monday evening in joining with
the hospital board and sending a delegation to Victoria in the
interests of an isolation hospital, is a commendable one. Not
ouly will suoli aii hospital redound lo the glow of Cumberland
and the hustling public spirit of her citizens, but from strict
business standpoint, it is a gain both to the provincial and city
The government will gain because it may have its indigent co'utageous cases cared for at the minimum rate, say 00c.
to 75c. per day, which it now pays for other cases at the present hospital, and which is a much lower rate than can be obtained by the old pest house method. In the end, as the country grows, the government will have to erect a building. It is
'better to put in with the city and build the proposed hospital.
Cumberland is the center of a large district.
The city would gain much over the old pesthouse method
and receive better service. The old building can readily be
disposed of.
But by far the greater benefit, the greater service, comes
to the people in better health conditions; as Dr. Gellespia points
out, a better control of contagion, more certainty in preventing
its spread. Such an hospital would prove attractive to those
unfortunately afflicted. Tliey would take advantage of it,
thereby removing as far as possible all danger to their loved
ones. No one may tell when even the simplest contagion may
prove fatal or develop into epidemic.
It is the modern, progressive wny of handling contageous
disease. AU power to Health Officer Dr. MacNaughton and

Liquid Cough Mixtures
Can't Cure Bronchitis
But the Healing Fumes of Catarrhozone, Which are Breathed to the
Furthest Recesses ot the Bronchial
Tubes, Bring Quick Belief and Sure
Kvery sufferer from coughs, colds,
bronchitis und all throat uud chest
ailments needs a soothing, healing
medicine which goes direct to the
breathing organs iu tho chest and luugs,
attacks the troublo at the source, disperses the germs of disease, nnd cures
the ailment thoroughly. And this medicine is "Catarrhozono."
The germ-killing balsamic vapor
mixes with tho breath, descends
through thu throat, down the bronchial
tubes, and finally reaches tho deepest
air cells iu the lungs. All parts aro
soothed with rich, puro, medicinal essences, whereas with a syrup tho affected parts could »nt be reached, and harm
would result through benumbing tho
stomach with drugs.

wutcbman, gazing blandly at tho
Indignant form of tho lighterman on
tho barge below, "und lho on'y way
I know lhls ono is 6am, Is because

they are, but the likeness ts only out-,

He cut  off a  plug of tobacco and

"White ns snow," ho repeated. '
"That's 1," snid lho lighterman, ns
he pushed bis unwleldly craft from the
Jelty. 'Til tell Sam your opinion of

Tho watchman went a shade redder
than usual. "That's twins all over,",
ho snid sourly, "ulwuys deceiving people. It's Htll arter all, and, Instend of
hurting 'is feelings, I've just been flattering of 'cm up. lt nin't the fust time
I've 'ad trouble ovor u likeness. I've
been a twin myself In u manner o'
speaking, it didn't last long, but It
lasted long enough for me to always
be sorry for twins nnd to mako a bit
of allowance for them. It must ho

and getting It Into trouble.
"It wns a year or two ago now. I
was sitting one ovoning ln the wicket
smoking a pipe nnd looking nt a newspaper I 'ud found ln the olllce, when I
sec a gentleman coming along from
the swing-bridge. Well-dressed, clean-
shaved chap o' was, smoking a cigarette. He was walking slow and looking ubout Mm casual like until his eye
fell on mo, when he gavo a perfect
Jump of surprise, find, arter looking
at mo very 'nrd, walked on a llttlo
way and then turned back. He did it
twice and 1 was Just going to say
something to 'lm, something that 1 'nd
been getting ready for 'lm, when he
spoke to me.
" 'Good evonlng,' ho ses.
" 'Good evening,' 1 ses, folding tho
paper over, and looking at 'lm rather
'"] hope you'll excuse me staring,'
he ses very peril te, 'but I've never seen
sueh a face and Jigger as yours in all
my life.   Never.'
" 'Ah, you ought to hn' aeon me a
fow years ago,' I ses. 'I'm liko everybody else:  I'm getting on.'
" 'Rubbish.! ho ses. *You couldn't be
better if you tried. It's marvelous!
Wonderful! ! It'a the very thing I've
been looking for. Why, lf you'd been
made to order you couldn't ha' been
"I thought at flrst he was by way of
trying to get a drink out o' me. I've
bcen played that game afore, but in
stead o' that he nsked me whether I'd
do 'lm the pleasure of 'avlng a drink
with 'lm.
"We went over to the Albion and I
believe I eould bnve 'ad It in a pall If
I'd only liked to say the word. And
all tbe time I was drinking ho was
looking mc up and down till I didn't
know where to 'look, us the saying is,
'"I came down 'ere to look for somebody like you,' he aes, 'but I never
dreamt I should have such luck,
an actor, nnd I've got to play the part
of a sailor, and I've been worried somo
time 'ow to mako up for the part.
D'ye  understand?'
" 'No,' I ses, looking at him.
" 'I want to look tho real thing," he
ses, speaking low so tho landlord
shouldn't hear. 'I want to make my
self the living Image of you. If that
don't foteh 'em, I'll give up the stage
and glow cabbages.'
"'Make yourself like me?'. I ses.
'Why, you're no more like me than I'm
like u  sea-sick monkey.'
" 'Not so much," ho ses, 'that's whoro
the art comos in.'
"He stood me another drink, and
then taking my arm in a cuddling sort
o' way, and culling me 'dear boy,' 'i
led. me back to the wharf and explained. He said 'e would come round
next evening with wot 'e cnlled his
make-up box and pairit 'is face and
make Utnself up till people wouldn't
know one from the olher.
"'And wot about your flggcr?' I ses,
looking lit 'im.
" 'A cushion,' be ses, winking, 'or
maybe a couple. Hut wot nbout clothes?
You'll 'live to sell me those you've got
on.    Hat and all—and boots.'
"I put a price on 'em that I thought
would 'ave tlnished 'lm then and thero;
but it didn't. And at last, nrtcr paying
mo so many more compliments thai
they began lo get Into my 'end, he fixed up a meeting for tho next night nnd
went off. _,
" 'And mind,' he ses, coming back,
'not a word to a living soul!'
"lie went off agin, nnd, orter going
to the Hull's Hend and 'aving a pint,
to clear my 'cad, I went and sat down
In the ofllco and thought It over. It
seemed all right to me as far as I
could see; but p'r'aps the pint didn't
clear my 'end enough; p'r'aps I ought
to 'ave 'ail two pints.
"I lay awake best part of next day
thinking it over, and when I got up
I 'ad mnde up my mind. I put my
clothes in a sack nnd then I put on
somo others as much like 'em ns possible, on'y p'r'nps a bit older, in case
the missis should get asking questions; and then I snt wondering 'ow
to get out wilh the sack without 'er
noticing lt. She's got a very inqulrln'
mind, and I wasn't going to tell 'er any
lies ubout it. Besides which I couldn't
think of one.
"1 got out at last by pretending to
drop 'arf-a-dollar In tfite wash 'us and
went off while she was busy on 'er
hands and knees,
"I got into the office with it all
right and, just as it was getting dark,
a cab drove up to the wharf and the
actor chap jumped out with a big
leather bag. I took 'im into the private ofllce and 'e was so ready with 'is
money for the clothes that I offered to
throw the sack in.
"He changed Into my clothes fust of
all, ond then, asking me to sit down
In front of 'lm he took a looking-glnss
and a box out of 'Is bag and began to
alter 'Is face. Wot with sticks of colored paint, and false eye-brows and a
beard stuck on with gum and trimmed
wllh a pair o' scissors, It was moro
like a conjuring trick than anything
else. Then 'c took a wig out of 'Is bag
and pressed It on his 'cad, put on the
eup, put some black stuff on 'is teeth,
and thero 'e was. We bolh looked Into tho glass together while 'e gave the
finishing touches, and then ho clapped j
mc on the back and said I waa the
handsomest suilorman tn England.
"'1 shall have to make up a bit >av-,
Ier when I'm behind the floats,' he ses,;
ut lhis Is enough lor 'ere. Wot do you
think of the Imitation of your voice?
thlnlf I've got it exact.'
" 'If you ask me,' I ses, 'It sounds like
a poll-parrot with a cold In the 'end.'
'And now for your walk,' he ses,
looking us pleased us if I'd said something else.  'Come to tho door and Bee
me go up tho wharf.'
I didn't llko to hurt 'Is feelings, but
I thought 1 should ha' bust. He walked
up lhat wharf llko u dunclng-bonr In a
pair of trousers too tight for it, but '«
was so pleased with 'lmsolf that I dld-
llke to toll 'lm so. He was up and
down two or three times and I never
saw anything so rldlketous In my llfo.
'That's nil very woll for us,' he ses,
'but wot about othor people? That's
wot I want to know, I'll go nnd 'uvo
a drink, and see whothor anybody
spots me.'
Aforo I could stop 'lm he stnrted off
to the Mull's Head and went In, whllo
I stood outside and watched 'lm.
" "Arf-n-pint o' four ale,' ho sea,
smacking down a penny.
"1 see tbo landlord draw tho beer
and givo.lt to 'lm, but 'e didn't seem
to take no notice of 'lm. Then, just to
open 'is oyos a bit, 1 walked in and
put down a penny and nsked for u
"Tho landlord wns Just wiping down
lhe counter at tho time, and when I
gave my order ho looked up and stood
staring at mo with tho wet cloth 'old
up ln the air. He didn't say a word
—not a single word. He stood Ihero
for a moment smiling nt us foolish-
like, and Ihen 'o lot go o' the beer-
ingin, wot 'c was 'oldlng In 'is left
hand and snt down heavy on the bar-
floor. We both put our 'cads over the
counter to seo wot hnd 'appened to
'lm and 'e started mnking the most
'orrlblo noise I 'ad ever heard In my
life. I wonder tt didn't bring the flre-
Inglns. The actor chap bolted out as
If he'd been shot, and I was just think
Ing of fullering Mm when tho land
lord's wife and 'Is two daughters come
rushing out and asking me wot I 'ad
done to him,
" 'There—there—was two of 'em,' ses
the landlord, trembling and holding on
to 'Is wife's arm, as they helped 'im
up and got 'lm In thc chair. 'Two of
"'Two of wot?' ses his wlfo.
" 'Two—two watchmen,' ses the
landlord—'both exae'ly alike, and both
asking for 'urf-a-plnt o'  four ale.'
" 'Yes, yes,' ses 'is wife.
"'You come and lay down, pa,' soi
thc gals.
"'I tell you there was,' ses the landlord, getting 'Is color back with temper.
" 'Yes, yes. I know all about It,' ses
'is wife. 'You come inside for a bit, nnd
Gertie, you bring your father in a soda
—a large soda.'
"They got 'lm in nrter a lot o'
trouble, but three times 'c came back
as far as the door, 'oldlng on to them,
and taking a little peep at mo. Tho last
lime he shook 'is 'cad at me and said
if I did it agin I could go and get my
'arf- pints somewhere else.
"I finished the heer wot the actor
'nd left, and arter telling the landlord
I 'oped his eyeslghl would be better In
tbe mornin', I went outside and arter
a careful look round, walked back to
the wharf.
"I pushed the wicket open a llttlo
way and peeped In. The actor was
standing just by tho flrst crane talking
to two of the hands off of the Sultram.
He'd got 'la bnck to the light, but 'ow
It was they didn't twig his voice, I
can't think.
"They was so busy talking that I
crept along by the Bide of the wall and
got lo the office without their seeing
mc. I went into tlic private office and
turned out the gas there and sat down
to wait for 'im. Then I 'eard a noise
outside thnt took me to tbe door agin
nnd kept me there 'olding on to tbe
door-post and gasping for my breath.
Tho cook of thc Sultram was sitting
on a paraffin cask playing the mouth-
organ, and tho actor with 'Is arms
folded across his stummlck was dancing a hornpipe as If he'd gorn mad.
"I never saw anything so rldlkelous
in my life, and when I recollected that
they thought it was mo I thought I
should ha' dropped. A night watchman can't bo too careful, nnd I knew
that It would bo nil over Wnpptng next
morning thnt I 'ad beon dancing to n
ttippeny ha'penny mouth-organ played
by a ship's cook. And they'd believe
lt. A man that does 'Is dooty always
has a lot of peoplo ready to believe
lho worst of 'im.
"I went bnck Into the dnrk office and
waited, and, by and by, I 'eard them
coming along to the gate and patting
'Im on the bnck and saying he ought
to be in a pantermine Instead o' wasting 'Is timo night-watching. He left
'cm nt tbo gate and then *e came inlo
the ofllce smiling as if he'd done something clever.
" 'Wot d'ye think of me for a understudy?' he ses, laughing. 'They all
thought lt was you. There wasn't one
of 'cm who 'ad the slightest suspicion.'
"'And wot about my character?' I
ses, folding my arms acrost my chest
and looking at him.
"'Character?' he sea, staring. 'Why
there's no 'arm ln dancing; it'a a Innocent enjoyment/
" 'It ain't one o' my innercent enjoyments,' I ses, 'and I don't want to get
the credit of It. If they hadn't been
sitting ln a pub all the evening they'd
'ave spotted you at once.'
"'Oh!' he ses, very huffy.   'How?'
" 'Your voice,' I ses. 'You try and
mimic a poll-parrot, and think It's like
me.   And for another thing you walk
(about us  though you're stuffed wtth
I sawdust.'
"'I beg your pardon,' he ses, 'the
voice and the walk are exact—exact.'
"'Wot!' I sos, looking 'lm up and
down. 'Vou stand there and 'ave the
impudence to tell me that my voice ia
llko that?'
'1 do/ he ses,
'Then I'm sorry for you/ I ses. 'I
thought you'd got mure sense/
'He stood looking at me and gnawing 'Is finger and  by nnd by htf ses,
'Aro you married?' he sos.
" 'I am/ 1 ses, very short,
"'Where do you live?' he ses.

"Very good/ be ses, 'p'r'aps I'll be

Yes/ I ses, staring nt 'lm. 'Dut

"'Nothing,' he sos. 'Nothing. Only
I'm going to try tbe poll-parrot voice
and the sawdust walk on her; that's
all. If 1 can deceive 'cr that'll settle

"Wot are you laughing at?' I ses.
'"On'y thoughts/ he ses.
""Ave you got far to go? I ses.
" 'No, Just about tho samo distance

spluttering like a soda-water bottle.
"I took tho broom and 'ad a good

Just in {ho middle of It whon the cook
and tho othor two chaps from the
Saltrom came back with threo other
sallormen and a brewer's drayman
they 'ad brought to see me dance.
" 'Snme na you did a littlo while ago,
Hill." ses the cook, taking out 'is beastly mouth-organ nnd wiping it on 'Is
sleeve. 'What toon would you like?'
"I couldn't get away from 'em, and
when I told them I 'ad never danced
in my life, the cook asked me where
I expected to go to. He told the drayman that I'd been dancing like a fairy,
and they all got in front of me and
wouldn't let me pass. I lost my temper at last, and, arter they 'ad taken
the broom away from me, and the
drayman and one o' the sallormen 'ad
said wot they'd do to me If I was only
fifty years younger, they sheered off.
"I locked tho gnto nrter 'em and
went back to the office, nnd I 'adn't
been there above 'arf an hour when
somebody started ringing the gate-bell
as if they was mad. T thought it was

" 'Lost?'   I  ses.   'D'ye  mean   to   tell
mo you've been lo my wife arter all?'

again.    'They were both deceived, as

up a cab and fust leaving my bag nt
Aldgate,  I  drove   to  your  'ouse  and
knocked at the door.   I knocked twice,
and   then   an   angry-looking   woman
opened It and asked me wot I wanted.
'"It's all right,  missis/ I ses, 'I've
got 'nrf an hour off and I've come to
take you out for a walk/
"'Wot?' sho ses, 'nrdly able to speak.
"'Just a littlo turn round to see thc

"'She gave a screech like a steam-

"He shook his *ead and smiled ngin,
and arter opening the wicket a trifle,
and telling the cabman he shouldn't

for the sixpence, to wear on his watch-
"'Sixpence!' I ses. 'Sixpence! Wot

"Ho went to lhe back o' the cab, and
afore 1 knew wot had 'appened, thc

"Jemima," grumbled Mr. Chugwnter,
fumbling In tho chest of drawers, "I'd
like to know where, ln tho name of
common sense,  you keep my socks?"
"Which pair do you want, Joslnh?"
inquired Mrs. Chugwater.
"Any pair, if they aro only mates.
Hero's an odd grey sock and an odd
black one, and down here In the corner
is an old pair of last summer's socks,
with holes In tho toes. I don't see why
my things can't be kept in order the
samo as other men's."
"If you had only lold mc: "
"Told you! Havo I got to run to
you, Mrs. Chugwater, for every little
thing I want? Is that your Idea about
how to carry on the household business? If you'd Just tako trouble enough to pile things ln here so ns I
can find 'cm when I want 'em lt would
rfave mo lots of bother."
"Joslab, If you will let mc "
"Now, there's no uso your getting
excited about this thing. If you know
whero I can get a pair of half-way
decent socks, just say so, and I'll hunt
'em up; and if you don't know, and
will have the kindness to put the fact
in plain English, I'll go out and buy a
pair.   That's all."
"If you hadn't tumbled these things
all out of shape, Joslah "
"Tumbled tbem out of shape, have
I? What's a chest of drawers for,
anyway? Is lt to hide things in, madam? If I don't find what I want on
top, haven't I got to look down under,
I'd like to know? Any woman thnt
wilt pack and jam a drawer full of
things, nnd arrange them so you've
got to dig all through the whole business to get what you're nfter and then
don't get It, hasn't got the right Idea
about arranging a man's haberdashery.
If you know where my socks are, Mrs.
Chugwater, why don't you say so, instead of standing round like a post and
doing nothing?"
"I could have found them for you
ln a minute and saved you all this
trouble lf you had given mo a chance,"
said Mrs. Chugwater, as she straightened out the tangle in the drawer, and
brought to view, from one of the bottom corners, five pairs of clean socks.
"When you want anything of this kind
hereafter, Joslah, If you'll Just let me
know "
"The trouble with you, Jemima,"
growled Mr. Chugwater, ns ho jerked
a pair from the top of the pile and
went off to one corner to put them on,
"is that you talk too much."
According to careful compilations
made during the last few months, there
are nt present no less than 800 subsidized road trains at the beck and
call of thc German War Department,
nnd it is caBy to understand what an
immense help this motor fleet of powerful vehicles would prove in actual war.
Austria, Rubsui, and particularly
France, have not beeu blind to these
advantages and have inaugurated truck
subsidy systems based on tho German plan, so thut wars of the future
will seo tho majority of horses displaced by tho far moro efficient true.*.,
propelled* by a powerful, never-tiring
gtisoline motor. Hut this is not all.
Not satisfied with creating such an immense caravan of gasoline-driven road
vehicles, for the transport of ammunition nnd provisions, the War Department has mado extensive use of thc
subsidy plan in establishing an auxiliary motor cyclo courier corps, the so-
Called Sehnellfnhrcr.
The system is very similar to that
in use regarding the trucks. Young
men who already own motor cycles, or
wlio desire to become couriers may
mako application to tho government
and become enlisted as i>chiielll'nhrcr
(last riders). During manoeuvre time
a certain number of these couriers nre
ordered to present themselves with
their machines at headquarters and aro
temporarily enrolled as soldiers. They
are under strict military discipline, re-
Ceivo military fare, khaki uniforms, ami
$2.50 per day. They ure used for carrying dispatches, for reeonnoitcring and
for similar duties where speed is a
chief factor. During the time of such
manoeuvres nnd, of course, in actual
war these Schnellfnhrer have the ab*
solnte right of way on alt highways;
they are responsible only to the military authorities and arc not subject to
speed regulations; they may go nt (10
,milcs an hour over the hard, straight
roads of Germany without running the
risk of arrest and fine. Should they
sufl'er au accident the injured rider
is tnken care of in a field hospital or
carried to the nearest city, while the
machine is repaired at government expense. Should repairs be impossible
the rider receives n new machine; and
should ho le crippled or otherwise seriously it.jured a government, pension is
granted.' Kvery member of the Sch-
tie.lfuhrer corps is protected against
discharge from his position for partaking in thc manoeuvres, and the government's severest displeasure is visited
upon any employer wlio should dare discharge one of them for that renson.
Over 2,000 Schnellfahrcr obeyed the call
of the government during the pnst
summer rnnnoeuvres, and the wonderful speed and efficiency of this corps
created a furore in tho Fatherland.
Tho application of thc steam-turbine
to the propulsion of vessels was en-!
tcrtained as early as 1884, but its development was not seriously considered
till lM>2, when the economy of tho condensing turbine as applied to driving
ilynuinos had excelled that of thu compound reciprocating engine for the
same purpose.
A pioneer association, cnlled the Marine Steam-Turbine Company, Ltd,, was
formed in 1894, whose object was the
investigation of the subject. The prospectus opened with tho following paragraph:
The object of the company is to
provido tlic necessary capital for efficiently and thoroughly testing the application of Mr. Parson's well-known
steam-turbine to thc propulsion of vessels. If successful, it is believed that
the new system will revolutionise the
present method of utilizing steam ns a
motive power, and nlso that it will enable much higher rates uf speed to be
attained than has hitherto been possible with tho fastest vessels."
From the flrst it was obvious that
tho turbine was suitable to fast rather
than to slow vessels, and, consequently,
it wns decided to commence by building an experimental vessel of the smallest size consistent with the possibility
of attaining exceptional Bpccd. This
vessel, the "Turbinia," 100 feet in
length, 1) fnct beam, ti feet in depth,
and 42 tons displacement, after many
alterations to her machinery, developed 2,100 horse-power on trials, and attained a maximum speed of 3-1 1-2 knots.
At this stage tho pioneer association
wns transferred to a new company, the
Parsons Murine Steam-Turbine Company, Ltd., for dealing with tho system
ou commercial lines. Tbe first order
was iu 18011 for a destroyer, tho "Viper," from tho British Admiralty, Sir
William White being then Director of
Naval Construction. Tho principal dimensions were the same ns the 30-knot
type of that period, but the speeds
guaranteed were 111 knots ahead and
half full-speed revolutions astern. Her
maximum speed during a one hour's
special trial, hut with approximately
full weights on board, was Bfi.fl knots,
and under contract conditions of coal
consumption wns 33.38 knots. The
economy of coal consumption at high
speed was good and she fulfilled in
overy respect tho contract conditions,
but the results of cruising speeds
showed tho desirability of mo di flea t ions
in tho turbines in future designs to
improve tho economy at cruising
speeds, and in all subsequent war vessels cruising turbines or cruising elements havo been added at the high-
pressure end of tho turbine installation.
Jn somo very recent vessels impulse elements, in others geared high-pressure
turbines, aro being employed for tho
samo purpose. At about the same timo
as tho "Viper" was ordered, Messrs.
Sir W. G. Armstrong, Whitworth and
Co., Ltd., placed an order for the machinery of another destroyer, the "Cobra." The machinery of tho "Cobra"
was a duplicate of that fitted in the
"Viper." Tho "Cobra," on a three
hours' continuous run, maintained the
mean speed of. 3-Ui knots.
In 1902 tho Admiralty placed the order for tho third-class cruiser "Amethyst," with turbines, and for throe sister vessels with reciprocating-engines of
10,000 horse-power. The turbine installation of tho "Amethyst" wus of
the usual three-shaft arrangement, the
high-pressure turbine driving thc centre propeller, and tho two low-pressure
turbines in parallel on the steam driving the wing propellers, a high-pressure
j cruising turbine and an intermediate-
pressure cruising turbine being also
'directly coupled through flexible claw
j couplings to the low-pressure turbine
shafts; these latter were in scries on
the steam with thc main high-pressure
| turbine. The trials of these vessels
j conclusively proved the superiority of
the turbine in water consumption. At
speeds of 15 knots, tho water consumption of thc turbine vessel was equal to
that of tbo reciprocating vessels, and
jat higher speeds the superiority of the
turbine was considerable, while at the
'designed speeds of 21 8*4 knots, it
: reached 30 per cent., and at the maxi*
!mum coal consumption allowed by the
| specification, the power developed, as
estimated from the curve of resistance
of tho vessel, by thc turbine vessel exceeded the power developed by the reciprocating vessel by -12 per cent. Tho
maximum speed attained by the "Amethyst" was 2S.G luiots as ngainst 22.3
. knots for her sister ships, The in-
Creased efficiency derived from the
cruising turbines was very marked at
low speeds, ot some speeds 20 per cent,
'of uie total power ,being developed by
i them.
| In the morcantllo marine the first
vessel to he fitted with turbines was the
(Clyde passenger steamer,    "King  Kd-
I ward," built fo lhe joint, ownership
Of Captain John Williamson. Messrs.
Denny, of Dumbarton, and of the Parsons Marino Steam-Turbine company,
Ltd,     Hor longth is 250 feet., and, with
13,"Oil horsepnrter, sin; attained a speed
'of 20.48 knots. lier success led to the
construction of a second vessel f(,r the
Clyde passenger trulfic In 1003, ami iu
the same yoar tho "Queen" wns built
I for iho Dover and Calais route. All
these vessels have three shafts, tha
high-prcsHure turbine in the centre ex
haunting into two low-pressure turbines
on the wing shafts. Thus, by 100-1,
two of tho most suitable fields i'or the
marine turbine had been entered, name-
jly, for vessels of wnr and cross-channel
and passenger service, and, by 1005,
the turbine was lieing adopted for nearly all new cross-channel steamers of
high speed built in America, and about
a year later by lhe British Admiralty
for all new construction.
Tho application to large liners remained as yet untouched. The first
vessels to bc fitted with turbines for
transatlantic service were ordered by
tho Allen line, viz,, tho "Victorian'*'
aud "Virginian," This marked B notable step iu advance in the application of the new system to oceangoing
ships of Iiiiii speed. At this juncture
thc Into Lord Invorclydo appointed a
commission of experts to investigate the
suitability of the turbine for two ex
press  Cunurders   for   thc   New   York
After most carefnl consideration of
all data then available, and iu viow
of much additional experimental ie-
search conducted liy the committee, us
well ns tests on largo bind turbines, aud
on existing turbine vessels, the committee unanimously' recommended turbines in preference to reciprocating engines for Uio " Mfturotania'' and
"Lusitaiiia" of 70,00(1 horse-power and
24 1-2 knots sea speed. Tho perform*
ance of these vessels has justified the
decision; a mean speed of 2(i knots has
been maintained in favorable weather
across the Atlantic, aiul an uverago
speed of 20 1-2 knots has been maintained on many successive vuyugeB.
This itep completed the entry of the
turbine iuto all classes of last vessels
i'or which it was at tho time deemed
suitable, and iis adoption for fast vessels has since been almost universal.
At ono time, Lord Curzon stayed in
the then not too luxurious quarters uf
thu Croat Kastern Hotel, opposite Gov-
eminent House. Hy a prophetic coincidence the residence of the Viceroy
in Calcutta was copied, with additions,
from his father's ancestral mansion,
Kudlcston Halt, in Derbyshire. Ouo
day he lunched at Government Houso
with Lord Dull'criu. Afterwards, us he
was walking back to his hotel, ho halted outside the great gates, looked buck
ut the stately buildings so reminiscent
of the scenes of his boyhood, aud said:
"The next time 1 cuter those gates it
shall be as Viceroy.!' This, like most
of his other aspirations, was no vain
one, for on August 11, 1808, the appointment was announced of Mr.
George Nathaniel Cur/.on to be Viceroy
and Governor-General of India. He
landed ou December 30, and thus commenced his duties just before the completion of his thirty-ninth year.
Lord Curzon wns the -youngest Viceroy who had ever been appointed, with
the single exception of Lord iJulhousie,
who took over the reins of government
at thirty-six. Vet, young as he was,
he could claim to bo the only Viceroy
of India, save Lord Lawrence, who took
over his responsibilities with first-baud
knowledge of thc country and peoples
with which be had to deal. The story
just related leaves no doubt but that
it had been his lifelong aim to govern
India, and his conduct previous to his
appointment strengthens still more such
a supposition. He hail travelled pretty
well tho wholo of India, absorbing
knowledge of divers landB, peoples,
habits, and customs. Hut not India
alone, for ho was thoroughness personified. When ho received his appointment be had Been more of Asia and
studied more closely its history and its
existing conditions than most men living. Lord Curzon realized, in fnct,
that though India was "thc political
pillar of the Asiatic Continent," the
diversified problems of Asia wero in-
dissolubly connected.
The fruits of his study and travel
have been plucked from time to timo
by many a stay-at-home Knglishman, in
tho form of volumes of the greatest
interest. It would seein that criticism,
such as one has heard levelled at the
late Viceroy, should come only from
(hose who nre immersed in the Kast and
Kastern affairs. For by his assiduity
and conscientiousness Lord Curzon has
clothed himself with that coat of mail
most proof against impetuous and unstable criticism — knowledge. This
knowledge, coupled with his innate understanding of the spirit, of the Kast,
places him above most Indian statesmen of our own and other times. Ho
fully realized the inner feelings of the
Oriental. He knew that what bound
the Indian to Kngland, tile most important of all links, was his worship
for the person of the great King-Km*
peror. Many will not beli('ve this,
cannot credit it, but Lord Curzon knew
it, and acted accordingly. Moreover,
Lord Curzon went further nnd mado a
point of gaining the confidence—most
dillicult of tasks—of tho Asiatic rulers,
thus establishing a firm basis of support
for his actions.
Maggie Toytc— her real name is
Plumnoii—"with reddish hair, numerous freckles, and an Unmistakably
Cockney accent," though only twenty,
is a new diva now appearing iu the
Kast. She is one of the few Knglish
singers who has ever captured the ear
nf Paris. Her early girlhood was spent
in Staffordshire, England, Winging was
her gift, and at thirteen she began
studying under Jean do Reszko, in
Paris. At seventeen she sang professionally in "Don Juan," nt Monle Car*
lo, and nbout. a yoar later she was the
operatic sensation Of the French capital. Thc greatest ambition of a singer
was realized in her nineteenth year,
when she scored uu unquestioned success at Co von t Garden. Her husband,
