Cumberland Miner Get*  Nine
Months for Aua'ult on
At the Westminster Assizes
on Saturday last, Richard Goodwin, the Cumberland miner, was
given a sentence of nine months'
imprisonment by Mr.Justice Cle*
ment, on the charge on which he
had been found guilty of assaul*
ting a police constable during the
disturbance at Cumberland on
July 19. The prison term dates
from July 19, the time of his arrest. Mr. Justice Clements said
that reference to the question
which had been brought up on
Friday of the alleged confession
of McAllister and the misdemeanor of a juryman, he had come to
the conclusion that those were
matters which' should be brought
to the attention of the Crown
authorities of this Province and
of the Dominion. He must take it
that the verdict of the jury was
justified, and that meant that
Goodwin was not only guilty of
the assault, but of perjury in trying to free himself from the
blame. How far that should be
taken into account he was not
sure. He agreed with Mr. Leighton, apart from the surrounding
circumstances of the labor dispute
the assault was not of a very serious nature.
Mr. A. D. Taylor, K. C, asked
that the four remaining cases be
traversed to an Assize which will
shortly be called in Westminster.
The cases remaining from the
Assize were the charges of intimidation and assault against Goodwin and three others on which
the jury had disagreed, James
and Jack Connors. charged with
riot and assault, Joseph Naylor,
charged wifti riot, and a charge
of attempted murder against
Mr. Taylor said the circumstances that cropped up yesterday had something to do with
the application, but the jurors
were entitled to consideration, as
they had been in attendance since
September 15, The application
was granted, and bail was allowed Naylor, Hall and the Connors
brothers. Morris was refused bail.

H. E. Beasley, general superintendent of the Esquimalt and
Nanaimo Railway, stated that
the fuel situation was improving
on the island as the collieries
were shipping fairly good quantities of coal now, and the amount
was increasing daily. Even at
Ladysmith the mines are turning
out between 300 and 400 tons a
day and are increasing their output all the time. This is encouraging news for the consumers of
coal, for already the price of coal
has been seriously affected by
the extreme scarcity of this most
necessary article of fuel,

The telephone line which was
primarily for the use of the forest fire protection service, will
be of great value to the lumbermen in the camps up north as it
will enable them to get into telephone comunication with the
main line to Vancouver, Victoria
and Seattle in emergency. Superintendent George D. McKay was

Nanaimo, Nov. 3. -The output
of coal at South Wellington mines
of the Pacific Coast Coal Mines
Ltd., now average 200 daily. It
is expected that within the course
of a week the output will he increased to 300 tons daily. On
Wednesday last 360 tons were
shipped and on Friday afternoon
200 tons were on the wharf
awaiting shipment to Vancouver.
All the coal being mined at present is taken from No. 2 mine,
No. 1 not yet being in condition
to warrant a resumption of work
there as was experienced before
the calling of the strike on the
first of May last. A force of a
dozen men have been working
in No. 1 during the past two
weeks putting the mines in shape
to allow of the resumption of
work in that section, and Manager Roaf expects to have this
mine once more producing coal
in the course of a few days.
While the company has made
improvements to its top works at
the South Wellington mines in
the shape of installing the second
half of a compound compressor.

The Cumberland Hall has been
engaged for a concert and comed-
jetta, to be held there on the
evening of the eighteenth. We
understand that besides our local
talent, of which we may well be
proud, a number of Bevan's best
and brightest entertainers will
assist with humorous and musical selections. Mr. and Mrs. H.
Murphy, late of Australia, who
have had considerable public experience in the dramatic line,
and who made such a sensation
at the Bevan concert, have kindly
consented to assist in the programme. Besides humorous and
more serious elocutionary work
individually, they will present a
sidelight on domestic felicity in
their comedietta, "A Happy
Pair," which may make some of
us think that someone has been
taking undue literary liberties
with our domestic affairs. The
Bevan orchestra has also kindly
consented to assist in the evening's entertainment. The "Cumberland Gleemen," announced on
the preliminary posters, are a
dark and mysterious band who
have been gathering from time
to time in the dead of night a'
some pre-arranged place of resort
and alarming the neighbourhood
with a series of of intonations
set to the words, " Llwylnmryl-
myhhllymn," etc, etc., or as
near to that as this scribe's
knowledge of Welsh will enable
him to record. They will be at
the concert on the eighteenth
and may there further disclose
the object of their clandestine
gatherings. Anyway, the prospects are good for an unusual
musical and humorous treat on
eighteenth, and we are going to
be there. Tickets for reserved
seats will be on sale at Peacey's
Drug Store and at Bevan early
next week.

A meeting of the Conservative
Association of Valdez Island was
held at Heriot'Bay on Saturday
evening, Oct. 25th for the purpose of re-organization.
The meeting was well attended
and showed conclusively that the
Conservative Party in that District were unanamousand had one
object in view.i. e. the advancement of Conservative principals
in Comox district.
The meeting called to order by
Mr. H. A. Bull the former president whodelivered a speech that
was nothing if optimistic concer-
ving the future of the party.
The electin of officers was as
Hononary Pres. H. S. Clement,
M. P.
Honorary Vice Pres. M. Manson,
M. L. A.
Pres. Seymour Bagot J. P.
Vice Pres. R. J. Walker.
Sect. Treas. A.MacDonald.
Resolutions were passed dealing with organization matters
and the "ecratory was instructed
to forward same to B. C. Conservative Association On the motion
of Mr. R. C, Besteaux, Conservative Organizer for the district.
Mr. Clements and Mr. Manson
were accorded a vote of thanks
for the able and efficient manner in which they have looked
after the irterests of their constituents. Mr. John B. Williams
secretary of the B. C. Conservative Association was also apprised
of the fact that his efforts on behalf of the district were appreciated to a large extent and the
above mentioned gentlemen were
all assured of the continued support and influence of the Conser*
vatives of Valdez Island.
Delegates were elected to rep*
resent the Association at the Conservative Convention to be held
at Shoal Bay on Nov. 15th. The
meeting then closed with the
singing of the National Anthem
and cheers for the Hon. R. L.
Borden and Sir Richard McBride.
An enjoyable time was spent
by the assembled members when
Mr. Cameron of the Heriot Bay
Hotel invited them to the upper
hall where a dance was in progress, and it is safe to say that
if the male residents do not do
their duty as Conservatives, the
ladies of Valdez Island will use
every means in their power to
make the Island a Conservative

Freeman occupied the chair in
his usual felicious manner. A
good programme of songs, recitations, violin solos and speeches
was rendered. The Chairman
and the Rev. Jas. Hood enlivened
the proceedings by numerous
anecdotes, told in a way that only
parsons can do. A supper
was served to which full justice
was done. A pleasant evening
was brought to a close by singing
God Save the King.
Coal Operator! Protest Against
Appointment of Arbitration
Ottawa,Nov. I. Protests have
been received by Hon. T. W.
Crother, Minister of Labor, from
a number of Vancouver Island
mine owners against an arbitration board to settle the difficulties
between the companies and employees. They point out that the
strike has been in progress eighteen months and that the mines
are in operation, and that the
men on strike are no longer in
the employ of the companies.
They also point out that tho
Lemieux Act does not apply to
disputes after a strike is declared
but can only be called into effect
to settle impending strikes.
So far, no application for a
board has been received by the
Minister, and he has notified the
companies to this eflect.
A recent decision in a Court of
Appeal at Montreal, in the case
of the street railway men, is that
the Lemieux Act is inoperative
a'ter a strike or lockout is declared. In view of this decision, it
looks as if the minister would be
powerless if a board was applied
for by the men. The Minister is
considering the introduction of
amendments at the coming session permitting the appointment
of a board after a strike is declared or the men are locked out.
Not a volume of The Youths
Companion is published that does
not contain a number of contributions by British contributors-
Mr. Gladstone, the Duchess of
Sutherland, Rudyard Kipling.
Lord Tennyson have in years
past written for this great family
paper. During 1914 the Duke of
Argyle, formerly Governor-General of Canada, will have something to say about "The Scot" -
his character and characteristics;
Jane Barlow will tell of the "Big
Houses of Ireland"; Sir Earnest
Shackleton will describe the
quantities which lead to success
in an explorer; Sir William Ramsay, the great chemist, will write
upon "Waste, and How to Remedy It"; Sir John Murray will tell
about "The Deepest Parts of the
Sea"; Dr. C. W. Saleby, eminent English physician, will
describe "The Bcaut> That Endures". This tells very little of
what The Companion will bring
its readers in 191*1 As it is to-day

Vou take great Interest In Dr. Murray?     He is clever, 1 suppose?
Peggy shrugged her shoulders. He
has not much chance of showing it
here; nothing to Uo but to welcome
Ibe new generation and God speed the
old. You will Hnd ln this little village that everybody takes an Interest
In everybody else; 1 wond.r how long
you will stand it?
This was Hetherlngton's opportunity. He reduced speed until the car
was crawling along at a comfortable
fifteen miles. I am going away at
tho beginning of next week.
Peggy snuggle Into the heavy motor coat she was wearing. You've got
tired of us quickly.
1 am going away on business, but
1 shall come rack if I am wanted. He
waited as though expecting a reply
but none came. Do you think I am
wanted? There was more anxloty
In his voice than 6'ther tni* °ccasion
or* the question warranted.
Peggy did not mean to be cruel, but
Uer quick woman's instinct put her on
her guard at once. Well, Cranby has
done without you for fifteen years;
I don't see how it could answer that
question in less tban fifteen days. Of
course, it Is a trite saying, but there

took one hand off the steering whee
It hovered over hers.   I am looking
for my niche, Miss    Mellon.       You
could help me find It If you would.
Ho blurted the words out like a
boy of nineteen. Tliojgh perhaps he
did not realize it himself, any woman
would have known that he had made
a confession of ' vc.

Without a word lletherington turned the car. And now he sent her
along at. the top speed. I Bhan't see

ing bis voice to make lt heard above
the wind and hum of the engines. I
want to know before 1 gn   hat—
It was difficult to say without making an absolute declaration of l.ve and
lt was too soon for that. Had he had
no experience in the delicate art of
love making?—or had he merely forgotten?
Well? Peggy looked up at him
with a tantalizing smile upon her red
He set his teeth and stared straight
ahead at tbo white road which the car
devoured. Something happened to
me the day I returned home. I think
—1 do not know for certain—lt was
the result of the accident. If I tried
to explain now you wouldn't understand, but it Is something which has
closed the door on tho past, shutting
It out as if it had never existed and
opening up a future whlcb, but for one
thing, would he altogether beautiful
and wonderful.   That one thing, Miss
Mehon, stands between me and happiness—stands between me and life Itself. You wonder why I am telling
you all this? Because you are the
only person who seems to understand
me, who has taken the trouble to
he—Interested ln me;   because—
He could not Juggle with words any
longer. The car was doing her fifty
miles an hour now. A sudden turn of
tho road, a vehicle coming in the opposite direction and the result would
be destruction. Hetherlngton was
unconscious of the danger. Peggy
was conscious of It and thrilled by It.
She was not frightened until lletherington  spoke again.
Because I love you! he blurted out,
almost savagely. The muscles of his
face were rigid, Ills eyes steel-like, his
lips almost invisible, so tightly closed
was his mouth. I had to tell you, he
continued aft*.r a breathless silence—
because when I Bo away I havo got
somo big problems to face.
Peggy stirred then and raised her
eyes. Y'ou are going abroad agaiu to
the Kasl?
London! he laughed; to me unknown nnd mysterious. I do uot
know what I shall find there, that's
why I have spoken before my time.
Forgive me. I do not want any answer now. I know lt ls Impossible
that you should care for me— yet. I
only want to be able to hope, I only
want to know that you— he caught
his breath and swallowed with difficulty— that you are free. It would
give me courage to fight as long as I
can hope.
It was true Peggy Mehon had not
learnt to cnre very much. She liked
this queer unconvent'onal man; he
was absolutely unlike any other man
she had met or dreamed—and then—
a mantle of romance covered him!
The stories that had been told, his
strange life, his return alone to a
lonely homo!
The chimneys of Cranby Hall show*
ed through the foliage of the trees.
Hetherlngton deliberately stopped the
car. Just tell me you are free, be
whispered hoarsely, .lust tell me
that I may—that you don't dislike me.
That's all I ask for the present. Y'ou
don't know what your answer means
to me. Y'ou can't guess, and God
help me, I daren't tell you.
There were passion and pain In his
voice, tbe expression of his face was
akin to agony. Peggy was astonished and alarmed. Beneath her buoyant effervescent exterior beat a great
womanly heart, but the was a long
time In replying.
How van I tell you wbat I feel, if I
do not know myself? But I like you.
Y'es, I do ,ike you, she repeated as
though convincing herself.
That's enough, Hethcrlnston cried
gladly. Y'ou have given me the spur
1 needed; you have given me back the
courage which nightly oozea from the
pores of nij skin and leaves me to
wake ln the morning a coward. 1
warn you I may be unfit to touch
your hand, to speak to you. But now
I am capable of lighting, and by gad,
I will make myself fit! Whatever
Sir George Hetherlngton has been in
the past, I swear he shall play 1 i
man ln the future.
Oh stop—please stop! Peggy cried.
Her voice was like music now; unconsciously she laid her hand on his
arm and she felt a thrill go through
his body. You asked mo if I were
free; I do uot know what . ought to
say. I am not engaged, but for years
thero has been a sort of understanding between myself and Jim—Dr.
Murray, I mean. Pour years ago he
told riic he loved me but confessed
ho was too poor to think of marrying,
But I know he hopes one day ho will
be rich enough to ask me. I have
always been a little coward, because—
You don't love him?
I Peggy burled her face In her
hands.     Don't aslt me.     I do not
know what love Is*
But I do, Hetherlngton cried, and
he caught her In his arms aud kissed

When the Biggest City Had a Famine
So much milk Is sent up to London
ai. 1 the price ls so high that poor people ln country districts have simply
to go without lt, was the startling
statement made by Lady Meyer at the
conference of the Naiional Pood He-
form Association the other day.
But lt ls .rot so surprislir. after all
when we remember whnt a mighty
volume of milk the people of tbo metropolis consume every year -about
111,000,000 gallons for which they pay
annually about live million pounds.
There Is no cily of magnitude in the
world that can compete against London with ils milk supply.
About fifty years ago the milk that
was consumed In Loudon mostly came
from districts within the metropolitan
area. But foo'- and mouili disease
broke out among the cows, and it was
then that London experienced a real
milk famine. It was at this time that
a far-seeing man—Sir George Barbara
—thought of getting milk from the
healthy cows in Wilts and Hants,
London's greatest supply ot milk
conies from Wilts, but large quantities como also from Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Surrey. Milk
has como to London even from Wales,
Ireland and Penzance, and In a few
Instances from Scotland. The following figures represent approximately
tho number nf churns which are
brought by different railways to London every year (each churn contains
about 1*1 gallons of milk): Great
Western Railway, 1,200,000 churns;
Great Northern Hallway, 400,000
churns; Midland Railway, 341,000
churns; London and Brighton Railway
255,000 churns.
All these railways took to lhe enterprise from the beginning and what
then proved an ill-paying Item is now-
one of the most flourishing, and keen
competition exists in counties which
are traversed by more than one railway company. Special trains led to
the building of special milk vans and
the movement towards sanitary insulation led to improvements which
were not dreamt of at an earlier day.
Every line has its refrigerating vans
with special accessories for excluding
dust and all kinds of germs. The latest pattern of milk van belongs to the
London and Southwestern Hallway.
J-hey arc fitted like modem Pullmans,
with Westlnghouse and vacuum brakes
and oil gas lamps, and the inner ventilation Is evei better than tha. of the
best passenger coach.
The termor, or his assistant, rises
early In the morning, not solely out of
consideration for tho crowing of the
cock or rising sun; It ls tho exigency
ot railway traffic which rets the alarm.
The .mtieiit kine await in the sheds
the milkmaid, or ma. or boy, or automatic milking machine.
Patent strainers and coolers prepare the milk for transport. The
cooler has taken tho place of an old
practice of lurreptitlously dusting
boracic acid into the churns
In the sumirei, for an Imperial gallon, the farmer receives 7d. and 8d.,
and In winter 9d. and 100.* dellvei :d
at the London terminus, and the transportation costs him one per.ny per
An Obliging Horse
A doctor and a clergyman were exercising their horses one morning in a
country lane, when nn argument arose
between thorn as to which of the animals possessed the sweeter disposition.
I'll wager that It their respective
tempers could be tried, said the dootor,
mine would be far away the belter.
That's all nonsense, retorted the
clergyman. My mare has tlie best
temper of any horsi in the neighborhood.
Well, here's a sliff hedge, let us
try their leaping capabilities, suggested tlie doctor.
Right you are, agreed his friend.
Tho doctor's hunter quietly refused
the jump, although put at it again
and again. The clergyman's little
mare also refused, but at lhe same
time threw hack ber ears and exhibited considerable ill-temper. When
repeatedly urged to jump she finally
accomplished a cleve* buck-jumping
feat, which threw her master straight
over the hedge. Strange to relate,
the reverend gentleman was quite unhurt, and scrambling to his feet commenced lo scrape 'the mud from his
broadcloth, whilst tho .'.oetor laughingly remarked:
" Perhaps yea arc convinced now that
my animal has a better disposition
than yours.
Not at all! replied thn clergyman.
Mv mare is such r.n unselfish little
brute that although unable to take
iho fence herself, she had no desire to
keep mc from going over. In fact,
she facilitated the mode of my transit

Oil the Future Fuel of Navies
There can be no dm. S that ihe naval future lies with oil as against coal.
A given tonnage of oil ns against au
equal tonnago of coal will enable the
same ship lo steam much faster, to get
up speed quicker and to travel 41 polecat, farther; moreover, the supply
(ran lio replenished In a small fraction
of the time, and on the high sea In
nearly any weather instead ot in port.
When yoa add Hint per knot steamed lhe cost is about the came, and
that the world's visible supply seems
as infinite for any near future as the
coal supply, the case seems conclusive. The objection that coal Is a
home product while oil is imported,
is of no relevance from a naval or
strategical point, of view, because if
we were prevented from importing oil
we could not import any -ther necess-
ily of national existence. ■

A Simple Explanation of the Summer
Camonadlng In the Sky
Whit la thunder?
Blow air Into a perfectly tight paper
bag until It In full.    Hold the bag so
that none of the air can escape and
strike it sharply and suddenly. There
will be an explosion like the crack of
a pistol.
That ll what thunder ls!
The scientific explanation for lt ll
I the expansion, compression ud ridden escape cf air. It Is the same
thing that happens ln a cartridge shell
when you press the trigger ot a gun
or pistol. In fact that is really a better explanation of thunder than the
paper bag experiment because lt bai
all the elements that cause thunder.
The spark caused by the cap cauaei
the Ignition of the powder, forming a
gal which pushes the bullet out of the
barrel of the gun and when gas comes
In contact with the air, it makes a
.'roaring, crackling sound trying to get
through, because tbe pressure of the
gas ls greater than the air.
The thunder therefore, ls the result
of the lightning.
Now, what is lightning?
We don't know. Nobody knows.
We know that lt Is electricity—which
li another way ,of saying we don't
know because We don't know wbat
electricity Is. But we do have a general Idea of what lightning doea to
make the thunder. There is electricity ln the air all the time. Sometimes we feel lt more than we do at
others—or at least we are more cons-
clous of It being there at one lime
than at another. This Is due to the
condition of the atmosphere. If a
good breeze li blowing and the mixture of water and gas and dust that
we call air Is kept stirring we don't
feel the electricity much.
But lt there ls not much of a breeze
the sir feels heavy and oppressive and
seems to be filled with moisture. It
Is. It Is filled with tiny particles of
water we call droplets which, when
ln large groups are rain clouds and
when these clouds run into a cool strata of air they condense aud form rain
These droplets are curious things-
curious because they are so small. It
takes 300 trillion of them to malte one
drop of rain. And it. Is in the making
of the drops of rain that the lightning
comes. The surface of every droplet
Is covered with electricity. This
brings out another curious fact. When
you take two balls of the same size
and make one ball ot them you find
that the surface of the one big ball ls
really smaller that the sum of the
surface of the two original balls. So
that when the 300 trillion droplets
form the single drop of rain there Is
an enornious amount of electricity left
over after the surface of the rain drop
is covered as full as It. will hold.
This great excess has got to go
somewhere else. Whenever there
seems to be a good place for lt to go
—to another rain cloud or to the earth
a lot of these electrical particles get
together and making a sudden break
tor it making a lightning flash. They
go through the air so fast they heat it
The heat causes the air to expand,
to become greater In volume than It
was originally and this volume of air
—just like the gas In the gun barrel
or the alt* In the bag when you hit It
—has got to distribute itself over the
atmosphere and It starts doing so with
a roar and a bang when the gas Is
shot out of the gun barrel and when
the compressed air is released from
the paper bag.
That ls what thunder ls.

Many a child has been called awkward, haa been punished In school for

dance In ils earlier stages. So common Is this rervouB disease In childhood that ln some schools one-fifth
of all the pupils nave been found Buffering from It in one form or another.
Before the presence of the disease Is
betr.-yefi there is usually a disturbance of the general herilth. The ohlld
shows Ustlessnes3 and Inattention.
Then lt becomes restless, and twitch-
nig of the muscles and Jerking of the
limbs and body follow. A remedy that
cures St. Vitus dance and cures lt so
thoroughly that no trace of the disease remains ls Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, • hich make the new blood necessary to feed tho starving nerves and
gives them the nourishment they demand.
Mrs. Hiram Baruhart, Scotia Junction, Or.t.. says: "About two years ago
my oldest daughter, Kabel, then ,ten
years of age, was stricken with St.
Vitus dance. She could not keep still
for half a minute, no matter how
hard she rled. Iter limbs would
jerk and twitch and every little thing
would start ter crying. I gave her
several bottles of medicine said to be
good for the nerves, but Instead of
helping her she was steadily growing worse. Her voice would change
so that we could hardly understand
her, and her face became twitched until she did r.ot look like the same
child. I had useJ Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills myself when run down, and finally decided to give her these. When
she had taken two boxes I could notice an Imp-oyement, and by the time
she had used live boxes she waa fully
cured. However, I was determined
to make the cute permanent If possible, and I gave her two boxes more,
and I can truthfully say that she has
never had a symptom of the trouble
since, and ls now as bright and active

they have done for my child and myself."

Nes'. on a Sheep's Back
A well authenticated story of a starling's nest on a sheep's back comes
from Buckland B.'ewer, near Bideford,
on the authority of a Cardiff gentleman, who haa Just returned from a
visit there. During sheep shearing
operations on Oournwood farm, which

one of the shearers cut In half a young
starling which was ln a nest 11.at had
been built, ln the sheep's wool. The
nest, which contained two other fledglings still alive, was composed of moss
and twigs. For sonic weeks previous
to the shearing the sheep, with others,
had had the run of three fields near
tho farm.

Tho Nanaimo Herald of Wednesday has the following
editorial on Farrington's Litest Move -.—
Just how Fm'riiH/toii's move to invoke the good offioes of
the Federal Labor Department is to be regarded we learn from
the Free Press. A review of Farrington's conduct of tlie present strike becomes iu some way an obtrusion of crude personalities. Either the Free Press is unbelievably unsophisticated, or it is surprisingly ignorant. There is nothing delicate
in the present stage of the negotiations. The Free Press talks
as if a wrong or misguided word would prevent Minister
Crothers from using the good offices of his department, As a
matter of fact, Minister Crothers wired to Cumberland the day
after the strike began there offering the services of his department and urging the men to accept tliem. There was some
correspondence, but in October President Foster informed the
Free Press that they would not accept the services of tlie
department, as they were quite capable of settling their own
grievances. Then we come to Nanaimo in May. This time
Minister Crothers ordered an officer of his department out to
the coast, but again the men's leaders declined his oft'er of a
board of arbitration. Then came Minister Crother himself, but-
with no better success. Farrington himself took step6 to
render the Miuioter's mission abortive. Through the Vancouver press, he intimated that what Minister Crother would
have to do when he reached the Island would be to explain
to the miners why he had turned down the application of the
tnen of Cumberland for a board of investigation and refused
them the good offices of his department. This statement of
Farrington's was still current when the Trades and Labor
Congress met in Montreal. It was this statement chie% that
was responsible for the attitude of tlie Cont/ress towards
Minister Crothers and the Lemieux /let. Tlie whole thing
was a deliberate invention, fabricated and designed to defeat
the object of Minister Crothers' visit to the coast and the
author is now appealing to the very man he maligned and
whose action he caused to be misunderstood hy organized labor
throughout the Dominion. The Free Press may dismiss facts
as crude personalities but the facts remain facts all the same.
Aa to the points the Free Press raises let it be understood
that it misstating the whole position when it says "the Minister of Labor seems likely to use Ins good olf ces towards a
Settlement." The inference is that Mr. Crothers has just been
brought to this point. As a matter of fact he has always been
ready to use his good offices, bat he could do nothing until
application was made to him. All he has to do is to put the
machinery of his department in motion, and he cannot avoid
doin*7 this if application is made to him. It is made a point
that Farrington will not insist on a union officer forming one
of the members of the conciliation board, Why should he if lie
can get a better representative outside the union? Why make
a virtue out of a benefit!1 Then the Free Press arrives at the
conclusion that the Department of I/tbor would virtually be
the arbitrator. This is either crude nonsense or crass ignorance. All the department has to do with the board is to
appoint a chairman to sit with the representatives appointed
by the men and the operators. The matters in ispute are
then taken up by the board and later their report is submitted
to the Minister of Labor.	
The Free Press states that the miners are prepared to accept
the decision of the conciliation board, but it could not state
this from anything contained in the Farrington correspondence
which it published. ,4ccordi g to the correspondence Farrington was the sole actor. He told the Vancouver Trades and
Labor Congress that he alone was responsible for the strike,
that he alone had directed the strike and that he alone had
charge of it.    And just as ou his say so the strike began,  so
on his 8sy-sohe proposes it will end. .Js a matter of fact it
will end whether he says so or not, and we are very much
surprised if he does not realize this just as fully and as hopeless
ly as anyone else.

to discover some trace ot Sir George
1 Simpson's bltrtorle passage.     Dy the
grace of fortune he char ced to examine closely tho under side of ft fallen
giant of the forest, and tliere on the
Creat   Divide   between  Atlantic   ar.d
Pacific found   some   carving   which
proved to be:
It ls evident that tins.- Initials are
those ot Sir (Jcorge Simpson and I.Is
guide, .lnmes Roland. The use of the
Latin 'J,1 or the modern It; ter 'L.' ls
thought to signify that tho carting
was executed by Sir George himself.
The year 1841 Is thnt ln which thb
famous explorer made his trip through
the Rockies, choosing tho pass which
has been named after nlm.
The carving Is well preserved, The
fact that tho tree had fallen with
that side to the ground had sufficed to
protect tiro loitering against tho weather. Mr, Brewster had .the half section of tbo tree containing the script
removed and taken to his home. The
face bas been covered with varnish
in order to preserve us well as possible tlie only known trace of that famous round the world passage.

from this time, and, since girls ln the

Billy Allen confined himself to the

course and at the end of a year decided to apply what he had learned In a
practical way on his farm, then go
back during one or more winters to

between theory and practice or, rather,
working the two together. Be came
to aee the Aliens, but his first call passed with a certain formality that had
never appeared boforo. Mrs. Jones attributed lt to bis having mingled with
persons from otber walks of life than
farmers and to his having grown older.
Farmer Jones and bis wife, however,
thought little now of BUly Allen, for
t young widower ln far better circum-
•tances than Billy had called several
times at the house, ond, although he
was never alono wltb Sarah, the quick

wus looking for a wife. While bis admiring glances at Sarah were lost ou
Farmer Jones, tbey hnd a marked effect on his wife. She informed bor

that the next time tbe widower called

Turkey as "the Sick Man."
Now a collector of old prints comes
forward with tbe proof that tbo expression, "tbe sick man of Europe," so
persistently applied for years to Turkey, really dates back to tbe seventeenth century, when John Sobleskl
drove back tbe Turks from the gates
of Vienna. He shows an old engraving with the Turk on his sickbed in
the center o id the doctors representing all tbe nations of Europo gathered
Ibout him. As bas been the case ever

Many yeare ago there lived ln Camden, Mt., two neighbors, Dr. Huse and
Judge Thayer. Tbe doctor had occasion to sue a mon snd of course employed his neighbor, the Judge, is his

Judge, ho would get nothing.
Some time afterward tbe Judge was
afflicted with a felon and, of course,
employed his neighbor, the doctor. After suffering awhile he met the doctor
and suid: "Doctor, this thing ls getting a!9hg very slowly. I have walked the floor nights for a week. What

When Judgo Stewart of Vermont
presided ff the trial of a negro charged with the murder of another of his
race he admitted afterward to friends
that he had serious doubts of tbe prisoner's guilt until be began to pronounce sentence. Tbe negro bad
pleaded not guilty ond repeatedly on
being questioned hod asserted wltb
much emphasis, "I didn't do ill" The
evidence was not convincing, and the
Judge wos surprised when the Jury
brought lu o verdict of guilty. His
doubts vanished when, after reminding
tbe negro that he had been duly tried
by n Jury of twelve men, etc., he snld:
"It ls my duty to worn you that your
days on earth oro numbered, and lt
behooves you to Avail yourself of the
little remnant of time allotted to you
to make your peace with God."

It's the Fun loving Animals Who Make
Oood as Pets and Performers,
i The play of animals is of two kinds,
motion ami enperinient. Monkeys piny
"tag" almost as children do, end "follow my leader" is s constant game in
their native forests. The wild asses of
the Syrian deserts race with each other,
and this with so great an appearance
of definite organization that early travelers declared them to be half human.
The sham fight is almost universal in
the animal and insect world, end students of ants havo described them as
po* ring out of the ant hill on several occasions, "scrambling, wrestling,
jumping and pretending to fight, like a
crowd of riotous school boys ot plav."
Tbe puppy chasing his tail and the kitten with a ball of yarn are common
sights. Among sheep end goats, tho
phrases the "gamolling lamb" and tho
"sportive kid" reveal their playful
manners. A calf is an ungainly creature, bnt it will cavort over the pasture in a manner which is distinctly
reminiscent of exuberance of animal
spirits. Tha cockr-of-tuc-rock sad other
birds hold dances regularly, ot which
ths tango is not excluded, though most
of the numbers are solo performances
snd would he billed as "eccentrlo dancing."
When domesticated animals are considered, the relationship between play
snd submission to taming processes is
very marked. The young of the grizzly
hear play little and the grizzly ia llttlo
tamed; the young of the cinnamon
boar play less and the cinnamon bear
is never tamed; the young of the black
bear play like i.ittens and the black
bear is a constant companion of the
hurdy-gurdy inso uthern Europe. Tha
young of the baboon do not play, aad
no one would suggest a baboon for a
pet; while the young of the macaque
monkeys play continuously, and eastly
become members of a household. Dogs
generally ore playful and, ss a race,
are tamable; tne thylacino never play,
and no one hss attempted to domicile
a '' Tosmanian devil.j' Parrots are playful, eaglets are not,'and the rule thus
holds true In the animal kingdom.
Among sea mammals, seals sre very
playful, sea lions are not, and one finds
seals among the cleverest performers
of ihe vaudeville stage. And, of the
larger animals, the elephant alone possesses playful character in youth, and
thus while the rhinoceros and hippopotamus can only be seen from the
safe side of strongly bsrred cages, the
elephant can be utilized for a thousand
purposes, from that of a derrick to a

One of the most skilful dentists gives
these miss for the care cf the teeth:
Use a soft brush, and water of about
the same temperature ss the mouth.
Brush the teeth up end dowa in the
morning, before going to bed, and after
eating, whether it is three or si; times
a day. Use a good tooth powd* twice
a week, not oftener, except in *se of
sickness, when the acids from a disordered stomach are apt to have an
unwholesome effect upon the dentine.
Avoid all tooth pastes and dentriflces

The very beat powder la of precipitated chalk; it is absolutely harmless,
ond will clean the enamel without affecting the gums. Orris root added
gives t pleasant flavor, but in no way
improves the chalk. At least a pint of
tepid water should De used in rinsing
the mouth. Coarse, hard brushes and
soapy dentriflces caus the gums to
recede, leaving the dentine exposed.
These rules are worth heeding.
Bleaching Lingerie Waists.
When perspiration has left a yellow
