the month of February was read
and filed.
Aid. Coe explained that some

were instructed to attend to the
The Mayor stated that Aid.
Coe and himself had interviewed
the Police Magistrate concerning
the charge made against Mr.
Abrams by. the leaders of the
U.M.W. of A. for dismissing the
case against V. Chrast, charged
with carrying concealed weapons.
The Mayor said there was no
truth in the statement that the
accused was allowed to go with
the weapon, as it was returned
to the store, from which it was
purchased, by the police. Thf
Police Magistrate explained that
he was perfectly justified in dismissing the case against Chrast.
After hearing the evidence oi
the accus'd and the police John
McAllister, who was present,
said he got up the petition against
Abrams on the strength of Constable Gray's statements on the

did not tell McAllister that the
accused was given back the gun,
but the gun was given back to

Considerable discussion ensued
amongst the aldermen, and it
was decided to refer the matter
to the Attorney General.
Peter Anderson and the City
Hall alterations were referred to
the Board of Works.
The Chairman of the Finance
Committee asked the Mayor if he
had received any further information from the Manager of the
Royal Bank concerning an additional overdraft.
The Mayor informed Aid. Beveridge that the citv wanted $1500
but wa3 unable to get it. The
manager of the bank had received instructions from headquarters
that he, the manager, could not
advance any more money to the
city under the present conditions.
The Mayor fur*her stated that
the Council must either try and
pass a money by-law or try and
secure money from the Government. It was finally settled to
allow the matter of finance to
remain in abeyance until Friday
even ng. It was also decided to
hold a court of revision on the
7th of May, to be published 'n
the B. C. Gazette and the News.

The present day is often described as the age of electricity.
This, if not actually true, is rapidly approaching fulfilment, and
we shall shortly find ourselves
wondering how we had previously
done without it. It is applicable
to so many of our requirements,
and in addition is so exceedingly
convenient that its use promises
to become universal. Not only
do we find this to be the case
where the ordinary affairs of our
everyday life are concerned but
also under exceptionally circumstances. Nowhere do we find it
more convenient of adapation
than in many operations carried on underground. It has here
many things to recommend it;
and it superiority where it has
superseded, other means or processes is most marked.
It was probably most commonly adopted in the first instant to
replace the old-fashioned methods
of signalling. Not only were
these antiquated and inconveni-
;nt but also extremely costly. In
ong haulage planes it became
impossible to transmit from one
extremity to the other in one
operation. It' consequently became imperative to have intermediate signalling stations, with
their attendant signallers etc.
Mot only did this add greatly to
the cost of working, but delays
in the transmission of signals
often caused serious inconveni-
■nce. Electric signalling has
lone away with all this, and a
signal can be transmitted from
the greatest distance inbye prac-
ically instantaneously. Not only
.o but signals can be communicated from any point on the road.
Dhe only necessity is to produce
an effective current by means of
thorough contact of the signalling
Electric lighting has become
very popular in mines. Capable
as the current is of being conveyed effectively through insulated
cables, it lends itself to this very
readily. It is principally used in
the vicinity of shaft-bottom, and
occasionally on the principal haulage roads. Though the incandescent lamps are most generally
used, yet, in mines free from
gas, a modified form of arc lamp
is an improvement. Electric
lighting for, this purpose is greatly superior to any other, consequently the work can be done
more effectually than would other
wise be the case. If a cable became damaged by fall of roof or
sides sparking might ensue and
great damage result. In the
event of an incandescent lamp
being broken' the risk of danger
is almost infinitesimal; the filament being practically instantaneously oxidised.
It has almost completely done
away with the once popular fuse,
and the firing of high explosives
through the agency of denotators
is now very common. For this
purpose it has much to recom
mend it, not the least being its
comparative safety. The risk of
danger from a miss shot or a
shot hanging is almost nil, and
though such instances have
occurred yet they are practically
unknown. The detonator cannot
be fired once the magneto exploder is disconnected from the
cable. The low tension system
seems to be the most preferable
and is the most used. i
A direction in which it has
attracted attention in mining is
its adapatability for the purposes
of controlling underground machinery. We not only find it
employed for driving haulage and
pumping engines, but it is con

veyed to the innermost depths of
the mines to be used for driving
machine-coal-cutters which have
become so popular. There are
various risks to be encountered
where powerful currents are conveyed such great distances, but
rigid observance of the precautions understood to be necessary
reduce these risks to a minimum.
When employed for driving haulage or pumping engines the power was often conveyed from the
motor to the engines by belt or
other gearing, but special motors
are now constructed which connect directly with the mechanism
they drive. As with these
machines so with some boring
machines is the power of electricity utilised. The current is conveyed as in the case of the coalcutters which may be suspended
from the roof or sides of the
In a seam in which I am
acquainted and worked on the
Longwall system I installed two
electric double-motor disc coal
cutting machines and one single
electric motor pick - quick - bar
machine. These machines were
coupled direct to the disc and
bar, and cut to a depth of six feet
under the coal. The cutting was
hard. They cut at the rate of
eighty yards per shift along the
face. Two men worked in each
stall, one on each side of it. A
shot was put in, in front of each
road, and an opening made into
the freshly cut coal. Each man
worked along the face until he
met the man working on the next
stall. As the face advanced the
road side packs were built up to
within six feet of the face of
coal. The timbering was done
systematically, three rows of
timber posts being set, and as
each fresh row was set the back
row was drawn out and the roof
allowed to fall in the goaf. To
keep the miners supplied with
cars short sidings were laid at
the face of each road head to
hold four 'o six cars. When the
distance from the face to the
siding got too far for the miners
to push their cars, the siding was
taken up and moved up to the
face again.
In the case of a hauling machine the motor usually acts
directly on a spur wheel which
is really part of the drum. Cog
gearing fixed on the shaft of the
shaft of the motor engages with
the spur wheel on the drum. The
stopping aud starting of the drum
is controlled by a clutch, which
throws the gearing in or out of
action as required. The construction of such hauling machinery
is greatly simplified by the adoption of electrical energy. The
principal essentials are the drum,
the clutch, and the spur wheel.
guards played a
splendid game this half, and the
severe checking on Cameron was
responsible for the score staying
at it did. For a new man
this year Cameron has turned out
to be a wonder. He was ably
assisted by Grant.
The second half proved the
downfall of the borne boys. The
captain of the home team was
anxious to give every man a
chance in the game and had two
extra men along with him for
the purpose and decided to give
them a chance, the reason was
to get a line on the best team to
oppose the strong Victoria team
next Thursday night. Whether
this or the tendency of the Comox
team to rough it was the undoing
of the lecal team is hard to tell,
but in the second half Comox
started off wjth a rush, and before
long assumed a lead which they
never gave up.
Referee Mathewson was surely
impartial, but his knowledge of
the game was very bad. This
was clearly shown by the fact
that in the second half he only
allowed one foul shot, when both
teams were continually roughing
it, fouling, and really making a
Rugby match out of the game.
The changes in the second half
were Bannerman replacing Grant
and Wilson replacing Clinton.
The local boys went to Comox
to play basketball, and such a
game as was put up there they
do not pretend to play.
Andrew "ryon Crawford died

No. 5 Mine Continue* to Increase
Output - Harrison Liner to
Load at Union Bay.
The output for the local mines
on Monday went up to 1670 tons
for eight hours. On the same
day the record for No. 5 Mine
went up another notch by hoisting 435 tons in one shift. The
figures for the week commencing
Saturday March 29th up to Friday April 4th inclusive are 9lS7
tons of coal, making an average
of 1500 per day.
After discharging her cargo at
Vancouver, the Harrison liner
Statesman, which is due about
April 9th, will probably proceed
to Union Bay to load a cargo of
coal for San Francisco before
loading freight for her outward
voyage to Liverpool. Considerable shortage of coal has been
experienced in Californian ports,
especially in SanFrancisco, where
the demand is heaviest.
With the ever increasing demand for steam tonnage on the
Pacific Coast, charterers have
found it almost impossible in
recent months to secure vessels
of large carrying capacity to be
used in transporting coal from
the British Columbia mines, and
as a result the first big bottom
available.is immediately snapped
up even at the high rates existing
at the present time. It was only
recently that the freighter Tam-
pico, of the Pacific Coast fleet,
was sent to load a full cargo of
coal at Union Boy for San Francisco, and it is understood that
other boats will be sfentto relieve
the coal shortage. Not for many
years has such a condition existed
at San Francisco, where fuel is
usually plentiful.

It is Most Common Among Children of the School Age.
If your child—whether boy or girl-
is ftdgetty, emotional and awkward,
you should watch it carefully as it mav
develop St. Vitus dance. Frequently
children cannot keep still, they move
with strange actions, their limbs jerk
and their features twitch nervously.
Speech Is confused and the whole muscular system not under control. These
are among the symptoms of St.. Vitus
dance, a trouble that afflicts growing
gills aud boys, most frequently during tlie school age. Dr. Williams
Pink Pills are such a splendid nerve
tonic that they have cured the worst
cases of St. Vitus dance. They do
this because tbe new, rich blood they
make feeds and strengthens the starved nerves, thus throwing off ihe d'.s-
ease. Mere Is an example. Mrs.
L. L. Clifford, Westover. (Int., says:
"For over two years my little girl, Constance, was a sufferer from St. Vitus
dance. She was frightened badly by
a dog. which seemed lo bring on the
trouble, and notwithstanding all we
did for her It seemed tn be growing
worse. She grew so tad that she
could not. feed herself and her speech
was so badly affected that we could
carcely understand her. The twitch-
Ing and jerking of her limbs was pitiable. At this juncture we began giving her Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
to our great joy ihey have completely
cured her, and she is now as healthy
a child as you can And."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold
by all medicine dealers or sent by
mall at 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams'

A bright young lady tells how she
came to be acutely sensitive as to the
taste of coffee:
"My health had been very poor for
several years," she says. "I loved
coffee and drank It for breakfast, but
only learned by accident, as it were,
that it was the cause of the constant,
dreadful headaches from which I suffered every day. and of the nervousness that drove sleep from my pillow
and so deranged my stomach that everything 1 ate gave me acute pain'
(Ten Is just as Injurious, because it

"My condition finally got so serious
lhat I was advised liy my doctor to
go lo a hospital, There they gave
me what 1 supposed was coffee, and 1
thoneht It w-ns the best I ever drank,
but I hnve since learned it was Postum. I ga'ned rapidly and came
home in four weeks.
"Somehow the coffee we used at
home didn't taste right when I col
back, i/tried various kinds, but none
tasted as good as that 1 drank in the
hospital, and all brought back the
dreadful headaches and the 'sick-all-
over' feeling.
"One day I got a package of Postum, and the first taste of it I took. 1
said ''hat's the good coffee we had in
the hospital!' 1 hnve drank it ever
since, and eat Grape-Nuts for my
breakfast. I have no more headaches, and feel better lhan I have for

Wheu I reached Clapham I fonnd a
man waiting for me at the station
with a carriage, in which we drove
at a gallop to tha reservoir. Ou the
way he told me lhat Granger had been
sent down to examine the outflow of
water from beiientb and while doing
so hud got caught in the powerful suction at tlie orifice through which the
flood wus escaping. Air was being

"There's no way to save him hnt to

But what passed between us': Ah,
that only we und the Lord know!
Hanging Ihe loop of tbe duplicate rope
un my shoulder, i went down ngaln. 1
hud advanced but n few inches ueurer
lo Granger Ihun before when I was
caught in the suction, and It seemed
that a mountain wus ou me. 1 was
palled down un tu him. and so strong
wus the current that I could nut move
the rope from my shoulder to put It
nround him The only motion 1 could
make was a lateral one wltb the cur*

body so thnt my shoulder, on whlcb the

strength. Granger just before my second descent had made a feeble pull on
the cord.
I gave the signal nnd waited for the
final act in the piny for two lives. I
felt a strain on the rope under my
linns which soon grew to be terrific. I
signaled on Granger's cord. The strain
on me ceased, and the rope under hlin
tightened. Kor a time 1 saw no movement In him: then I could discern one
similar to lhe inlnnte hand of a clock.

A machine on the capstan principle
had been provided which would enable
those above to pull us both up if,the

my own rope and Granger's ut the
same time. There was a halt, and In a
few minutes the strain uu both of us
recommenced. The ropes slanted, aud
we very slowly began to move Horizontally. I knew from the strain, which
was Intensely painful, that uuly the
stoutest rope could stand It. We
moved sn slowlv Unit I would not hove
known we moved at all hud I uot noted

bodies passed beyond the suction column of water, nnd the strain wns perceptibly lessened. Then It diminished
rapidly, and we began lo rise.
There was no shout when we reached

whether we were alive nr dead. Those

Naneen'e Daring and Perilous Swim
For Hie Drifting Boats.
Among the perilous itdveniures of
the Nausea arctic expedition was the
narrow escape of Nansen and Julian-
seti ou their return trip to the Pnt ill
ufter their unsuccessful dash Tor the
pole. After many months of hardship
u narrow channel opened in (be Ice,
and they launched the two light kulaks
I that they bad carried on their sledges
for uioiv titan a year. A tew Cays afterward disaster nearly put an end to
the expedition. The fuetdent i* related
in "The Siege and Cum pies t ot the
North Pole." by Mr. Ueorge Hryre.
In the evening their legs felt stiff
with sitting In the kulaks all day, and
they landed on the edye of the Ice m»
that they might stretch them a little.
After the kulaks, which were lashed
together, had been mooted by mean*
of one of the braces they ascended a
hummock close by and hud been standing there only a moment when ,lol>nn>

once threw off some ot bis clothing,

strokes became more and mure feeble,
\ but tbe distance from the kulaks became shorter, and at last he was able
to grasp a snowshoe that lay across
the sterns, tie now tried to pull himself up. but his body was so stilt with
cold that he could not do so.   After a
; little he managed to swing one leg up
i to the edge of the sledge that was
lashed to the deck and then raised the
! rest of his body.   They were saved!

kulaks back to Johunsen. who admitted
I thnt these were (he worst moments he
had ever lived through,  Johanseh new

spread the sleeping bag upon tbe ice
nnd covered Nansen with the sail and
everything he could find to keep out

all   right   again,   aud   in   the  evening
i they pressed forward once more on the
march that Una liy brought them out of

A Chilly Forecast
The earth Is growing in bulk on nr*
count or the meteoric dust thai falls on
It. it has recently been estimated that
100 tons fall dully over the surface ot
the globe, and that millions of years
hence this will have Increased the
thickness of the earth considerably.
This would have a tendency to bring
us closer to the sun But centrifugal
force Is augmented at the same time lu
greater proportion aud counteracts this
tendency; consequently the earth would
be swept away from the sun. with the
result that its distance from flint body
would be considerably augmented.
This is spoken ,of as having possibly
happened to some of tbe larger outer
planets, notably Jupiter, lu tbe remote
Milk and Ministers.
Milk became a very important part
of the food of families In the colonial
days or the eighteenth century, In
1728 a discussion took place In the
Huston newspapers ns to the expense
of keeping n family of "middling Hgure." These writers all named only
bread and milk for breakfast snd supper. As cows Increased In number,
milk, of course, became more frequently used. Rev. Mr. Hlgglnsoti In HM»
wrote that milk cost lu Salem but a
penny a quart, while another minister, John Cotton, said that mil-' uud

That the disorderly scenea in the Hou^e of Coinmous
recently were deliberately planned by the Liberal organization
with a view to giv'nij; the impression that the Government
was trying to stop free speech is now very evident.
Hon. William Pugsley, ex-Minister of Public Works, was
tlie leader of the irreconcilable element, which iu the absence
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier had the upper hand. Mr. Pugslej/
quibbled for hour after hour over technical points of order in
an effort to l.loel. the business of the country ami to prevent
the passage of the naval bill. Finally rushing out on the
floor he endeavoured to intimidate Chairman Rubic'oux by
shaking his fist in his face while he waved his followers to
come on. Tliere then followed the most disgraceful seems
ever witnessed iu the Canadian House oi Commons,
Premier Borden showed himself the hig man of Parliament
by the tactful and resorceful way in which he handled the
delicate situation. It Was his coolness, calmness and fairness
which prevented riotous scenes. In closing he made a statement on the situation which showed tint the Government was
prepared to carry through lhe bill to the end.
Mr Borden stated: "Without desiring to make any threat
oi Koying anything offensive 1 want to eay that we propose
carrying out 'hat for which we have a mandate from thepeqple
of Canada. Whatever else is done, the Kinr/s government
must be carried on and the public business must be transacted."
Premier Borden in his speech made it clear that the
Government would not submit to minority rule, characterised
lhe action of the Liberals i; committee by quoting from Hon.
W. E. Gladstone as follows :
" It is not a very easy matter to define obstruction, and 1
will not attempt to define il for anyone but myself. 1 will only
give my description of it. To me it appears to be the disposition either of tbe minority of the House or of individuals to
resist the prevailing will of the House otherwise than by
Continuing the Premier stated : " We do not desire to
deparr< front the constitutional tradition of this House, or take
any steps that may rot be absolutely necessary. Honorable
ryciilhmcn opposite on more than one occasion have boasted of
their ability to force us to dissolve and go before the public

By Alfred Wilson Barrett

I will join you there. Will you do
that? And he held out his hand
to Kaston.
1 will start at once, said Easton
rising to hia feet. But how will
vxu find me?
You know my office, said Nell, wire
me as soon as you have found somewhere a tel3gram will reach you. Rely on me not to waste time hero, and
when we next meet Mr. Rlvlngton iu-
.tether, 1 think ho will have something
to explain to us.
But now the murderer hegins to
grow uneasy. All this has exceeded
his plans his wildest hopes. All is
too well. The verdict, to his surprise, lias been accidental death, No
mention has been mado if suicide, no
mention has been made of tlie letter,
the accusing letter. *et the letter
has existed, he had placed it himself
lu the dead girl's ham), and site had
been found dead. What has happened to this letter? He searches the
papers fer a word of it. He wonders
if in the confusion, the 'terror of the
moment, lie can have mislaid It, taken
It away with him, If the verdict can
have been a blind and the thing be
even.now in the hands of the police.
who search for him, But no sign
co-mos. And he fears. Unseen, un-
hoard-off terrors haunt him. He cannot stand the constant strain, he cannot keep away, and he comes to this
house, which of all others he should
avoid. But Violet knowing nothing
of the letter, gives no sign, he can get
no hint from her, Yet ho is convinced she must know of its existence,
even that it is in her possession. And
And so he abducts her? ejacu at >J
the Major, carried away by his com
panton's words.
And so, probably he abducts her,
and so he comes back here yesterday
to search, himself, for this piece of
paper. For lie feels that so long
as It exists and its whereabouts are
unknown, so long will his terrors
haunt  him.      Do you see?
Neil stopped at last—exhausted with
the vehemence with which he had described the scenes he had conjured
up, and looked at the Major a little
So earnest had been Nell's tones, so
vivid the things he had described, that
Easton, who had been feeling as if he
had himself just ceased to witness the
tragedy, woke with a start.
You must be right, he said, 1 feel
you are. But there is one thing I do
not understand. The murderer's
hand left its Imprint on the brass of
the burner you have there. How is
it that it did not upon the note?
Neil smiled slightly. It did, he
said. Look at the note, and you
will see,
Easton started, and drew the paper
quickly from his pocket. On the
one side was the writing he knew and
remembered so well, on the other, now
that his attention had been called to
it, he could distinctly recognize the
faint imprint of a finger out lined in
red in a corner of the paper. And
he flushed.
Good heavens! he murmured, and I
never noticed that.
Neil smiled again. Why should
you, he said. You took it. for granted, as most people would, that this
was written by Eda herself, and even
had you notic-at the mark, you would
probably haw taken it for hers, II
is very faint too upon the paper, for
it was the burner the finger marked
Yet you noticed It, said Kaston, admiringly .
I have always had a fancy for this
kind of thing, said Neil, and it is in
my business. I should not he much
use if I had not remarked it whn. yon
sthowed me the paper first. It still
remains to say whose finger-marks
they are, remember that.
They are Kiviuglon's. I feel sure of
it, said Kaston. I feel that you have
reconstructed this crime as ft really
occurred and that the man who came
back to search for something so eagerly ln her rooms was tlie man who
committed the murder and that it was
this paper ho sought,
Neil nodded. Yes, he said, but we
must prove it.
We will prove it, if we have to

Kasion, but she-— Violet—must not
stay a day longer where she is. We
must get her away.
We must do nothing rashly, return-
Ad Neil, slowly. Remember all this
Is suspicion merely and we must not
harm her. We kr.ow nothing of the
relations between this man and her.
He may be her husband, and she may
be fond of him. He may even he as
innocent as oureslves of this girl's
death. It Is what we must find out
before we deal rashly with the situation. Bui you are right. She must
not stay there, at all events unguarded, for another day. That might bo
I am free, said Easton, quickly, I
have nothing to dn. I am ready to
give my time and anything 1 have to
help her. Toll me what ynu advise,
and I will do tt.
Go down to Oakston. Find out if
she has recovered consciousness, and
get an Interview with her at all coat,
said Neil.
And you? asked the Major doubtfully.
1 have a few hours more work to do
In London; 1 want to find out a little
more about this man Uivington's position. Go to Oakston, Bee Violet—

Kaston, who had sometimes found
the time hang heavily upon his hands
since he had taken up a life of idleness, now began to bless the fact that
he had no duties which stood in the
way of his giving his undivided attention to Violet Brooke and her
strange si; nation. He obtained
some money from his bank, packed his
bag. and was very soon back again
at Oakston, in which place he discovered a small Inn, where he could stay
the night, and whence ho wired to
Nell to the address the latter had
give n him.
It was evening by the time he had
accomplished all this, and it wn3 already growing dark; but he made up
his mind that he would at all events
have a look at the house which he and
Nell had left so crestfallen. He had
not made any plans, as yet, as to how
ho was to obtain an interview wi:h
Violet, but he trusted that chance
would help him In some way, and if
it should not, he was determined openly to compel Rlvlngton to let him
speak to her, cost what it might.
He felt that he must know, and
know soon, whether the young girl
was indeed the wife of this man, who
bad therefore a right to keep her
there, or whether, as he felt in his
heart, she was the victim of some
plot which was drawing them, who
knew  whitther. ,
The little inn where he had left his
hag was not very far from Uivington's
place, only a mile or so across some
fields and Kaston soon found himself
again outside the lodge gates, where
Nell and he had left their taxi-cab
on their former visit.
There was a light in the lodge window, but Easton opened the gates
quietly and attracted no attention as
he passed in. He hoped indeed to
have a good look round the house,
and to get some idea of the position
of Violet's room before being seen by
any one, and with this object he kept
to the side of the drive, well under
the shrubbery, in case he should be
met by people going in or out.
But no one passed him, and as he
went on he became aware of the
house looming up In front of him—
dark and deserted-looking, and with
no sign of occupation coming from It.
Good God! he thought, as he drew
nearer, the place is empty aud I am
too late.
But even as he (.bought, he caught
sight of a Taint light moving along
one of the windows that looked out
from a passage, and after a moment
the front door opened and a figure
came out.
Kaston for a second drew back, but
as he saw that the house now was entirely in darkness, he took a step forward again. Tliere was something
mysterious about, all this silence and
darkness, and he fell he must know
the meaning of it.
As the figure approached, he realised that it was a man, and a tall one

Military Censorship of New Fashions
in Constantinople
Constantinople.—The military commandant of Constantinople has just
issued a significant order prohibiting
Turkish women to appear in ihr
streets In attire which is contrary to
the religious law and to national custom.
This winter is marking a great advance over previous years In the extreme street garb worn by the younger generation of Moslems. Deft
dressmaking has converted the old-
fashioned black outer garment Into a
most attractive costume, which accentuates rather than hides the nut in]
lines of a good figure.
This order does not represent a ho,i"
that the Turkish woman will go back
to her shapeless clothes. Tho military commamlmant. knows woman tia
hire too well for that. It is lntv-
preted as a caution against arousing
fanaticism In these critical days,

Believes Insurance Will be Beneficial
to England, as it Has Been to
Berlin, Germany.—Doctor Kaufman,
president of the imperial insurance department, has just given his views
regarding the betterment of national
and social conditions in England.
which may be expected from the new
insurance laws, which recently came
into force. The president was care-
fui to explain that he only spoke from
his knowledge of German conditions,
but that he expected analogous results
in England.
There will he, thinks Doctor Kaufman, an enormous reduction in poor
law expenditure, in consequence of the
insurance laws. Thrift will be supported and nourished, and in millions
of caBes created. It is a mistake to
suppose that insurance will kill a desire to better one's conditions. In
Germany insurance has implanted
courage to face the future. It will
also be so in England.
Secondly, insurance will result in
the freeing of the people from their
greatest fear. In consequence, there
will be Increased national happiness
and higher standards of life and living.
In Germany for example, the consumption per head of population of rye,
wheat nnd meat, notwithstanding the
high prices, has largely increased, the
deposits with savings banks have
enormously risen, and Doctor Kaufman believes that these indications
of national prosperity are mainly attributable to the national Insurance
Economic development, of course,
plays its part, but this development is
furthered by the security which insurance fn all Its branches gives to
the workers. Reasoning hy analogy, similar results may be expected
in England.
Thirdly, an improvement fn the
conditions of life of the worker means
improvement in the quality of work
done by him. This may be regarded
as an  industrial axiom.
Fourthly, the new English law will
affect the lower strata of people, just
as it has done in Germany. This
strata hitherto were helpless, but sick
insurance and old-age pensions remove their most crying needs. Compulsion for these classes was absolutely necessary. In a few years will be
witnessed a new life, new hopes and
new ideals in these classes.
Finally, there Is the improvement In
national hyelene to be expected, especially in all that affects tuberculosis
and olher national diseases. The
hygiene initiative of tlie Insurance
laws will be felt from the highest to
the lowest classes in the state, but
especially in the homes of the poor.
In Germany ihe worker's life has been
prolonged; it will be so in England,
(treat sanatoria? will rise In all parts
of the country climatically suitable,
and the English may look forward to
lhe complete stamping out of certain
diseases which have hitherto ravaged
the nation.
In conclusion, this high German of
tlcial said the act nt firs-t would prob
ably not run smoothly, but with patience ft will become an essential and
Indispensable part of the social life of
the English people.

Geneva.—A very curious case ot
what ia described as telepathy with a
suicide is being discussed here.
Some people ascending lhe Saleve
by the funicular were startled to see
nn elderly woman walk to a ledge
overlooking a ravine 400 feet deep.
She wrapped a shawl round her head
and jumped over the precipice. The
victim, so it. was afterward discovered, was a widow named Mme. Simon,
who had been greatly distressed because a younger sister, with whom she
had lived, had for the last five months
been a patient In a Geneva hospital.
Here is the curious feature of the
tragedy. The news of the suicide did
not become generally known in Geneva for several hours, but at about
the time of the tragedy the woman in
the hospital declared to the nurse that
her sister was dead, and she did not
wish to survive her. In the nurse's
absence she threw herself from the
ward window Into the street, and was
so severely injured that she Is not expected to recover.
So far as Is known no written communication had passed hetween the
two sisters for a fortnight.
i Plasters, ointments and sulphur were
alike   useless,   but   Dodd's   Kidney
Pills Made a new man of him.
Princeton, B.C.—(Special).  — All
over Canada people are telling of the
great work Dodd's Kidney  Pills are
doing, and even In tho rocky mountain
fastnesses where   nature   hides   her
mines men are telling- of cures made
and  suffering  relieved  by  the  great
'amNllan Kidney remedy.     Wm. Murray,  sixty-six  years    old,    w,.«    has
tramped the frontier as lumber jack,
rancher, prospector, miner, hunter nnd
trapper, and who has friends all over
tho west, is one of these.      Many a
I tale of hardship and danger ho can tell,
but his first real trouble came when
Rheumatism claimed him,
"1 slipped ou the mountain side and
strained my kidneys and then my
troubles all seemed to set ln at once.
I had nearly all the symptoms of Lumbago, Sciatica, Neuralgia Diabetes,
Dropsy and Brlght's Disease," Mr.
.Murray states.
"Then I broke out In a terrible rash
that spread all over my body and kept
me In tortures. 1 tried all sorts of
liniments and ointments and took sulphur enough to start a little hades of
my own. But lt was all no use.
Then I tried Dodd's Kidney Pills, and
all 1 can say is they made a new man
of me."

Asthma Cannot Last when the greatest of ull asthma specifics is used.
Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy
assuredly deserves this exalted title.
It has countless cures to its credit
which otber preparations had failed
to benefit. It brings help to even the
most severe cases and brings the pa'
tiont to a condition of blessed relief.
Surely suffering from asthma is needless when a remedy like this is so
easily secured.

An Always Ready Pill.—To those
of regular habit medicine is of little
concern, but the great majority of men
are not of regular habit. The worry
and cares of business prevent it, and
out of the Irregularity of life comes
dyspepsia, indigestion, liver and kidney troubles as a protest. The rundown system demands a corrective and
there Is none better than Parmelee's

Profitable Litigation
Among the curiosities of litigation
may be died the following ease. Ou
the boundary line of two farms in un i
Austrian village there grew a large
gooseberry-bush, from which the two
farmers for years gathered the product. What glows on my side is
mine, and you may have the rest, was
the agreement.
Some time ae;o the neighbors had a
misunderstanding, and this came to a
climax when the gooseberries became
ripe. A lawsuit followed, and tip-
peals were made to higher judicial
hedies. The final decision was lately recorded tn the Austrian courts.
Each party is to have the right to
pick the berries which grow on his
side of the line, just as it was originally, but neither may destroy the hush.
The costs are charged half to each litigant. Each farmer had to pay 225
krone. The yearly yield of the bush
is worth about one-half krone, and the
judge told the lighting farmers: With
good luck, it will take you only 800
years to make the bush pay
good care of It.
Reverend Gentleman Fully    Corroborates
Mies Kate L. Dolliver, of Caledonia.
Queen's Co., N.S., says: "1 must add
my testimony to the value of Zam-
Buk. Ulcers aud sores broke out on
my arm and al-hough I tried to heal
them by using various preparations,
nothing seemed to do me any good
The sores spread until trom lingers to
elbow was one mass of ulceration.
"1 bad five different doctors, and
faithfully carried out their lnstruc-j
tions. 1 drank pint after pint of
blood medicines, tried salve after salve |
aud lotion after lotion; but It was of'
no avail. i
"My father then took me thirty i
miles to see a well-known doctor, lie!
photographed the arm and hand. This:
photograph was sent to a New York |
hospital to the specialist; but Ihey
sent word they could do nothing
further fur me, and 1 was In despair.
"One day a friend asked me if I
had tried Zam-Muk. 1 said 1 had not,
but I got a box right away. That
first box did me more good than all
the medicine 1 had tried up to lhat
time, so I continued the treatment,
Every box healed the sores- mure and
more until, to make a long story short,
Zam-Buk healed all the sores completely. Everybody in this place
knows of my case, and that It Is Zam-
Buk alone whloh cured me."

Dolliver's minister, writes: "This is to

of the Fisherman's Home, coolly took
a box round while an open air meeting
was ln progress.
For a time he and his box were
merely glanced at by the audience, until he presently came upon a wealthy
gentleman wearing a gold watch and
dhain and a diamond, ring.
Thinking of take a rise out of him.
the wealthy gentleman decided to
probe him.
Do you lish" he asked of the emissary.
Yes, sir, came the respectful ans-
Ah, continued the gentleman, then

The alms-collector, however, stolidly stood his ground.
Well, demanded thn gentleman, have
I not told you to sling your hook'!
My dear sir, remonstrated Ihe emissary, I hove already Blung II about
twenty times, and have not h'td a single bite yet. Won't you oblige me,
The gentleman gave blm a quarter.

not in attendance, staling; Awaiting

Unfortunately, the telegrams were I
occldentally sent to several members
who were present, with the result that
upon their returning home and explaining to their wives what a terribly busy night they had had at the
llru.it, t.oiible ensued.
