had gathered to listen to tlie evidence.
William Cornwall, the Brat witnrw
called stated that be wu a twitchman
on the train. On the morning of the
accident the pin which held the locom
itive and coach together wu pulled
400 or MX) yards above the switch,
and the engine went ahead it full
speed, be jumped off at the switch for
the purpose of throwing the jtrack to
the engine might run itack onto No. 5
switch while the passenger coach went
put so that the locomotive might be
in front going back to, No. 7
mine with the morning abift.
The locomotive weut too .far down
and wu unable to get into No. &
twitch before tlie car* whieh followed
cam* down the track. When he taw
the oars coming down before the engine could get on the twitch he tamed
the switch the second time sou to
keep the coach on the track, and then
ran dowa 15 or 20 yard* to tell the
engineer to reverse hit eagin* bat the
engineer did net hear er niiiunaierttood
him and kept right on with the ruult
that the collision took place.
Crow examined by Chief constable
Stevenson of Nanaimo who wu present to represent the Attorney Generals' department, the witness stated
that he bad acted u switchman about
i months. The train wu coming in
empty to take the morning shift out
to work. It wu a miners train.
There were 3 or 4 men on the train

pin, and he hid done to.     ,":'•
Tht twitch tfiey were attempting to
make wu a drop twitch.
He described the difrerjnce.between
a "drop" twitch and'a "flying" switch.
In a flying twitoh the engine and car*
were at all timet travelling in the tame
direction,' But in a drop'aVigr.fi' there
wu a time when both engine and cart
were travelling toward eaoh other.
A drop twitch wu the more dangerous.
When h* realised that an accident
would occur he could not **a the locomotive for atnoke and steam.
ye received no instructions to pull
that pin, but had told the enginur when
he would pall the pin.
If he had not turned the twitoh the
second time th* accident would still
have oecured u the can were too nur
the frog when he turned il the second
time.
It wu the first time the engineer
w-u in charge of the train. After
the accident he taw McKee coming
limping down the track and lie down,
he wu eut behind the ear.
He hurd the engineer call to him
and when he got tn him wu told that
there wu a man dead in front of the
engine ind to go for assistance. He
went for Mr Jariett. Mr Richard
htd given hia instructions to ut u
twitchman.
He made the drop switch every «tor
ning.
Crow examined by Mr Harrlton,
Solicitor for the Company, he stated
that it wu not part of hit duty to u
certain if patunger had a right to
ride on the train-
It wu not a regular train for carrying workmen, bat went down for the
purpote of taking workmen back to
So.7.
Mr Thornton wu bringing the train
down for Mr. Hae to tike it hack with
the workmen to the mines. Mr Use was
the regular engineer for that purpose.
He did not think workmen had any
right on that train. The coach wan
on the frog aud not going fast when
strwtk.
tn answer to tbe Jury he stated
thtt the engineer hail no fireman with
hint that morning.
Dr Gillespie told of examining the
uiud on the morning of the acri
dent. Hit head bad beeu crushed and
the" Injury wu suflicient to cause
death.
Harold McKee the hreakman, told
>f nailing the pin at Cornwall*' request.
On rounding the curve he noticed the
engine wu uot yet on No. 5 switch
and pot on the break, calling on Foli
t > assist him. When he saw the engine, wu going to hit the oar he stepped
baek into the doorway of the coach
and wu thrown violently to tho loir
of the ear, after which be crawled
through the car window.

THE ISLAMDER,
New Breeds of Canadian Wheat
(By John W. Ward, In Canadian     Contury)
ONE of ths most Important problems
which confronts the modern agn
cultural scientist is tlie produc
tiou oi new varieties of wheat and other
terealB specially adapted to the conditions ot' soil and rainfall found in uew
rcgftus as they are opened up to tho
st'iilcr. Kach country has itH own pe-
euiiar conditions, nud no each country
has to work out the problem for itself.
In Cauada this study is being carried
ou in tho agricultural colleges of the
different provinces and at the experimental farms of tho Dominion Govern
uiviit located in tho dlJTsrout Boetious
of tin* country, ami particularly at tho
eenlml experimental farm at Ottawa,
by Dr. * liitrlivt K. Saunders tho Douiiu'
ion cureallst
Western grain growers have fount! the
faiuuus tteu Plfo wheat vory satisfactory on the whole, except in regard to
the time taken to mature tho crop,
wlm Ii in tho less favorable wasons is
milier too long, so that the fields aro
sometimes touched  by frost   before tho
giniii ii ready to cut.   In hardiness of
R or bul aud llour strength, thi! character*
IstlcB winch chiolly determine the value
of U'liuut, Bed Fife has hitherto been
wil html a rival, but Dr. Saunders has
now Mill-coded iu producing a large nuiu-
bt-i ni new* varieties, among which are
8e\ciiil that bid fair to wrest from Bod
Fife its present proud position of bu«
proinucy. The chief rival of Bed Fife
at the present timo in a variety1 pro-
diici'tl by i'r. Baunders through cross
breeding and selection, to which he has
given the name "Marquis." This
wlu'iit Is rally equal to Red Fife iu the
quality of flour which it produces, it
vidua heavily, and ripens from a week
lo ten days earlier than Red Fife. Last
yeai Martjuis was grown at several hundred pohitB throughout tho prairie provinces, the largest field being oue of 43
acii's near old Fort Carlton, ou the
Kortli Saskatchewan Elver, and it grew
ami ripened aa far north as Pott Vermillion, which in 400 miles beyond Edmonton and considerably nearer to the
A rciic ( irde thau to the United States
boundary* Tho acre plot of Marquis
grown nt Fort Vermillion yielded 40
bushels uf No. 1 hard wheat, weighing
6" putiudB to tho measured bushel—
truly a remarkable record for a point
So f:ir north, At tho experimental farm
of the Dominion Government at Indian
Head. Sauk., Marquis yielded 64 bushels
to the Here last year, and n measured
bn.-liel there aluo weighed fl.1, pounds,
There \s altogether about 6,000 bushels
Of Marquis available for seed this year,
and Dr, Saunders' office is Inundated
Willi applications from farmers who
wish to secure ono of the ten-pound
bugs which he will distribute free ot
charge aa long aa the supply lasts.
Bui Dr. Saunders is not content wilh
even this remarkable success, and be
has iu prospect about 500 varieties of
early spring wheat of hie own breeding,
E.lii of which are now fixed types.
Among them are two groups which have
been found to ripen one and two weeks
earlier than Marquis, respectively, oue
of i hem being ripe on July 13 last year.
These wheats retain the remarkable baking strength of Marquis aud Red Fife,
but it is uot claimed that they will
equal .Marquis and Red Fife in viold.
I)r. Saunders, believing that In those
Varieties tne limit of all round excel
lence 1ms been reached ami that a short
snllig of the period of growth can only
be secured by sacrificing either quality
or quantity. The chief value of these
varieties, consequently, will be in extending still further northward the
wheat-growing area, and in providing
for the  farmers of the country goner-

eeptinmilly early frost, which might
Otherwise cause rery serious loaa.
Most of tho cross breeding at Ottawa
has been dono with Red Fife as one of
the parents, because it baa the type
Of kernel uesirnd by millers, early ripening varieties imported from other countries being used as the other parent.
Karqtiia is a cross between Red Fife
md an Indian wheat known commercially us Hard Calcutta Rod, but tbe specific name of which bus not been preserved, and Preston, Stanley and Huron
are other early wheats which claim descent from Red Fifo, bavin r been produced some yearn ago by Dr. vVUlfara
Saunders, director of experimental
farms, and tho father of Dr. Charles E,
Baunders.
New varieties of wheat, aa has been
Stated, are produced by cross breeding,
or crosB fertilization, the latter process
extending over several years. Tlie process is perhaps worth describing; it is
possible that some enterprising fanner,
finding lime hanging heavily on his
sands, will make a bobby of ihe business nnd evolve u wheat that will bring
him fame aud fortune.
The cross breeding takes place at the
time when the wheat is in blossom,
when in tho natural way the pollen
which is hidden under the chaff covering each separate kernel of grain burst*
from the antlers in which it is contained
ind fertilizes the feathery pistil and
So gives life to the embryo kernel which
•therwise would wither. In order to
produce a new type the pollen from one
?aricty must be used to fertilize the
pistil of another, and thin is accom
pUshed by a very delicate operation re
Quiring much skill and careful hand
Ii ug. The method followed by Dr,
Saunders is to first pluck a numbor of
heads of the variety which is to be
ased as the male parent iu the cross,
and then, sitting in a cool and shady
spot, armed with a pair of fine tweeaers,
io lift the chaff covering the kernel and
remove the antlers to a pill box whose
Interior has been coated with black
furnish. The antlers, which are three
ni number, and resemble a piece of cotton about one-sixteenth of an inch in
length, are taken when just about to
become ripe in which condition they
will burst eitner in the handling or a
few moments after being removed. Tlie
tiny skin of the antlers is then re
■loved, leaving the pollen in the form of
• fine dust. The wheat plant which is
to be the mother of the new variety
bi then taKen in hand as it grows in
the field, and the antlers are removed
from those krrnelH which have reached
the proper stage, the remainder being
torn off the head and thrown away.
Tbe pollen contained in the pill box ia
then taken on a camel hair brush and
applied to the pistil, a feathery growth
lying close to tho antlers. There will
probably be a down kernels ou a head
that will bo at the right stage for treat
ment at the one time, aud when all havt
been operated ou the head is wrapped
in muslin and left to grow aud ripen
in the field. In Dr. Saunders' experi
once about one half of tho kernels thus
treated teach maturity, and the experi
inontor thus gets on the average ball
a dozen BOOdfl to sew next year. Tin
resulting plants will be almost identical
but in the SUCCOodlug season, when th,
seeds thus obi aided from them are sown
each ouo will produce a croup similai
to the sister groups, but containing s
many different types aa thero WW
eds ou tbe plant. Kach of those will
represent a different combination of the
peculiar qualities of tbe sorts originally
crossed, Somo will ripen early aud
some late, some will be large and some
small, some will be bearded nud the
rest bald. At this stage selection begins. The plants nearest to the type
desired will be selected and their seed
sown again ami this process continued
until in tho course of n few years tin
plants at length become uniform, when
the type is considered fixed.
( The new variety is then propagated
until a suflicient quantity of wheat is
obtained to enable milling and baking
testa to be made, and Dr. Saunders i
this winter engaged in baking into
bread flour produced from over ouo hun
dred new varieties of wheut. Tbe vario
ties which emerge successfully from
thia ordeal will this year bo submitted
to the final test to ascertain thoir itbil
Ity to yield large crops, and for this

SAOBED IMPORT OF THE TREE
IN "East aud West," Professor H. E,
Raullnson writes on Hacred Trees
in East and West. He tells of the
and many-COlored flags, as the Buddhist
as the sacred treo of tlieir religion.
What the pipal treo is to India, the ash
tree is to Scandinavia. The Christmas
tree is a survival of the old davB of
treo worship. We hang it with lights
and many-eolored ags, as the Buddhist
decorates his pipal with rags and flowers and lights tiny lamps as its foot.
Tlie maypole seems most probably to
be phallic iu origin. The Greeks Sclent"
fy the hamadryad with the tree, and at
Dodona Zeus made known his will. .Tali
web walked in 'the garden in the cool
of tho day, and showed HiB going by thi
sound in the tops of the mulberry trees,
Milton's theory of Christianity' rested
on the fruit of that forbidden free, and
the Cross itself is the tree of redemp
tion. Perhaps, suggests the writer, it
is the eternal miracle of the tree thnt
has made it to all men of all ives an
outward symbol of inward divinity, that
led to the parallel between the Kingdom of Ood and the mustard seed that
beccmeth a tree. The Tree of Life was
the foremost object in the New Jerusalem, just as in Swnrga, the Heavenly

of Kalpavraksh. which grant all men's

GOOD HEALTH FOR
RUN DOWN MFN
It Yon Art Weak and Easily Tired
Try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
Anaemia is a state into which one
falls because of lack of blood, or because
the blood ia poor, weak, and watery.
Tho man or woman who has not enough
blood is pale, languid, easily tired and
easily depressed. Aa the trouble progresses other symptoms show themselves
—and the life of the sufferer is one of
misery. Anaemia opens the door to
consumption, and gives victims to all
the epidemic maladies, because the
whole body Is weakened and unable to
resist the inroads of disease. Dr. Wil
Mams' Fink I'ills are the beat remedy
in the world for tho cure of anaemia,
and till its at ten da ut miseries. They
make the blood rich, red, and pure, thus
bringing health and strength to weak,
despondent men and women. We do not
know of a single case of anaemia where
Dr. Williams' Pink I'ills have failed to
euro if given a fair trial. Mr. John
Hastings, Venn, Husk., was a victim of
this trouble and found new health
through Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. He
says: " 1 was working on a railway
driving a team and found myself gradually running down. I did not pay much
attention to it at first, but soon I began
to lose my appetite and it was a trial
to get through my day'a work. I got
medicine from the doctor on the works,
but it did not help me, and finally I
got so bad I told the foreman I would
have to quit. He told me not to lose
hope, that he would get aome medicine
that would soon make me all right. That
night ho went to town and bought me
three boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I had not taken more than two boxes
when I began to feel better, and after
I had used five boxes 1 was as well and
strong as ever, and could do a day's
work with any man on tbe job. T may
just add that before I began taking the
pills I was so run down that I weighed
only 12" pounds nnd while taking them
I gained 2'1 pounds. I cannot say too
much in favor of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and strongly recommend them to
all run down men."

that tbe first quarter of a century will
see the passing of tho fur seal. The
black fox and the silver grey have al
moat disappeared, and the trappers are
fortunate who secure but a few of these
pelts during tho season. In almost
every variety of Canadian fur, despite
the national laws for protection, tho
supply is slowly but surely decreasing.
Iu connection with only one of these
products baa any attempt so far been
made at preservation by breeding in
ranches, and it is perhaps the*oiily onu
iu which sucu an attempt is possible.
l''ox ranching as a business is a new endeavor, but it pays woll. It gives a
largo return for but a very small outlay, and a few years will see it a profitable, well-established aud remarkably
.levelnped industry. It is iu Prince I'M
ward Island, the smallest province iu
Canada, that the most oxtouaivo expert
ments have so far been made. There
the attempts af fox-raising have been
followed by abumlaut. success. Three
thriving .ranches are already in operation, nnd the owners are receiving large
returns for their labor.
Tho visitor to a ranch would not sup
pose, at least from appearances, thai
ihe plain, small, unpretentious enclosure yields an annual income of five or
six thousand dollars on an expenditure
Ot. little more than a hundred. The
ranch ordinarily covers in actual Bpaoe
about an acre of wooded land iu ti
sparse grove of spruce or fir, It is sur
rounded uy a fence of wire netting
about twelve feet, high, the trees sorv
Ing as posts. The proverbially sly fox
uses sll his cunning to escape from nis
prison bv attempting to climb over tho
fence or to burrow under it, To pre
vent him effecting his liberty a slri|
of wire netting four feet wide is attached to the fence like a projecting
cave, over which it is impossible for
him to climb. As he ia unable .to bur
row deeper than four or six feet, the
netting is sunk into tbe ground to this
distance, and inside tho enclosure the
fox is then secure. lie makes his own
home by burrowing a long passage just
below the surface of tho ground, as in
his wild, free state. The ranch owner,
however, ordinarily asaistB him by
building several warm huts like largo
dog kennels where the animals find shel
tor. a few troughs are placed inside
the fence to receive tho animals' food.
Such is the simple and inexpensive
equipment of the fox ranch.'
Hut if the building operations re
quire only a small outlay and little ta
bor to complete, tho tending of the
ranch means great care on the part of
Ihe owner. Constant watch fulness it
tho price of success. Scarcely two
thirds of the cubs survive infancy. The
greatest agent of destruction is not dis-
easo, but the parents themselves, which
eat their young if the latter are left
with them long after birto, A few days
after the cubs are born they must be
separated from the older foxes, and
Tor this purpose the little enclosure is
divided into two or three compartments.
In feeding, too, great care is necessary,
Thoy are fed with milk, fresh moat
and fowl, .it feeding time they come
out regularly from the holes and huts
to the troughs provided for their food.
They soon - become familiar—almost
lame—with the owner or the person
who .eeds them. But so timid are they
that at. sight of a stranger, or at the
sound of a voice, thev dasn away
great alarm and remain hidden for days
until hunger drives them from thoir
shelter. In killing the animal* when
their fur is ready for market, the greatest caution is necessary. A drop of
blood on the fur, or the smallest break
or defect ruins it for commercial purposes. To bring the highest price it
must bo a perfect specimen. Hhooting
the animal, or even killing it by a blow
or a knife, ia therefore scarcely permissible if the best results aro to be
obtained.
Peculiar methods of slaughter are employed. The animals are enticed into
rmo of the huts, where they are easily
[•aught and strangled. Sometimes chloroform is used to kill them. Another device ia to lure them into a hollow log
closed at one end; the other end is then
covered and the animal is slowly smoth-
red. The skins taken from the animals killed by these methods are in no
oanger, if handled carefully, of stain
or defect. Another difficulty the ranch
er meets with is snow. Sometimes in
the severe storms of winter, even in'a
grove, the Bnow piles high to the top
of the ranc. fence and the foxes escape over the huge bank. But by persistent shovelling, which means perhaps
ne or two nights of labor, this difficulty ia ordinarily overcome.
The Prince Edward Island rauchew
have succeeded in producing a strain
of very beautiful "royal black" foxes
from the ordinary silver grey species.
These are it freak of the silver grey
breed and in the wild state appear only
iccnsionally. Out of a total of five
Hundred silver grey skins that aro shipped annually from Alaska to tue European markets, there are no more than
;ht or ten of these so-called "royal
black" skins. The others—that appear
but seldom—come from Labrador and
he north Atlantic provinces. Thev are
'xlremely rare and of great value.
I'hey are uot found In the ordinary fur
markets. As fast as they appear they
are purchased principally by agents of
the royal families of Russia, to whom
they are sold at enormous prices. Con-
scnuently the tox ranchi*r deals almost
exclusively in this freak brfeedj'ho has
no place in hip business for the ordinary
red fox, and he gives less attention to
tho silver grev than to the "royal
black."
The largest owner in Prinee Edward
Island hns seven pairs .of breeders.
From tuese he gets from thirty to forty
ubs each year, but scarcely two-thirds
of them, because of disease and parent
[laughter, survive infancy. To develop
ihe twenty or twenty-five yearly aurora to the age of two nr three years,
when the fur Is Tendy for market, requires but a very small annual expen
liture. ihe animals, when their fur
ia read* for marketing, arc not much
larger than a large cat or a fox terrier.
One skin will make a very small collaret or muff, and ten or twelve skins
•ire necessary to make a cape of ordinary Bize. Tne largest yearly output
'rnm riie ranch is from fifteen to twen-
'v-five felts. They are nsunHy sold In
'he DnryLton markets. The largest price
vet paid hns been seventeen hundred
Inllnra for one small skin no larger
ban a small dnir skin—but a skin of
very rare coloring and beauty. Such n
"rice, however, is unusual, and orninnr
My the skins sell nt an average nf fropi
two hundred and fifty to three hundred
dollars  ouch.    Thus  the   ranch  owner,
if he meets wit* no losses and has the
ordinary output aud success, receivos
for his labor yearly from five to seven
thousand dollars, and, while hie actual
yearly outlay iu hiuuey hi only a few
hundred dollars for food, repairs to the
ranch and shipping expenses.
»s hat Uo future of fox ranching will
be, oue can only conjecture. It is now
followed ou a very small scale, for tho
owners of ranches do not yet concentrate Iheir energies on this as thoir sole
occupation. The few ranchers in Prince
Edward Island are farmers, who keep a
fox ranch as an extra because they find
it pays, iney got larger returns*from
thoir foxes than they get from their
cattle and hogs, perhaps than they get
from their entire farm; but they nevertheless do not follow ranching as a real
aud solo industry. Each year, however,
sees tlie enlargement of the present fox
properties, the establishment of new
rnuehoB by speculutive ranchers, ami a
surprising increase iu the output uf
pelts, The future amy see iox ranch

COFFEE
11HE use of coffee aa a beverage is
traced to the Persians; it came
Into great repute in Arabia Felix
about UfiO. and passed thence into
Egypt and Syria, and in loll to Constantinople. It was conveyed from
Mocha, in Arabia, to Holland in Id Hi,
and was first brought to England by
Nathaniel Cnnopus, a Cretan, in 1050.
The first coffee-house tu England was
kept by u man named .Jacobs, in Oxford,
tn 1(150, The first in London was opened
by a Greek in George Yard, Lombard
Street, in 1052, Pope's well-known
lines in "Tbe Rape of the Lock" show
that it was familiarly known in his
timo:
"Coffee,   which   makos   tho   politician
wise,
And  see  through  all   things   with  his
half-shut eyes."
Toward the middle of tho fifteenth
century, it is related, a poor Arab was
travelling iu Abyssinia. Finding himself weak und weary, he Stopped near u
grove. Por fuel wherewith to cook his
rice, be cut down a tree that happened
to bo covered with dried berries, His
meal being cooked aud eaten, the traveller discovered thnt these half-burnt
berries were fragrant. Ile collected a
number of-them and, on crushing them
with a stone, found that the aroma was
increased to a great extent, While wondering at this, he accidentally let the
substunee full into a can that contained his scanty supply of water. A miracle. The almost putrid water was purified. He brought It to his lips; it was
fresh aud agreeable; and after a short
rest the traveller so far recovered his
strength and energy as to be able to re
sume his journey. The lucky Arab gath
ered as many berries as he could, and.
having arrived at Aden, informed the
mufti of hia discovery, That worthy
was an Inveterate opium-smoker, who
had been suffering for years from the
influence o. the poisonous drug. He
tried au infusion of tbe roasted berries,
and was so delighted at the recovery of
his former vigor that in gratitude to
the tree be called it camuha, which iu
Arabic signifies "force."
It Is said that the Mohammedans,
shortly after the introduction of coffee,
employed it to keep them awake during
their long religious services. Later it
was considered an intoxicating liquor,
aud hence to be classed among the beverages prohibited hy the Koran.
Still its use was continued, however,
and though it took a long time for its
influence to pass beyond the confines
of Arabia, It finally came into favor at
Constantinople, where coffee - houses
were opened in the-sixteenth contury.
Until IG0O the only source of the
world's coffee supply whs Arabia, but in
that year Governor Genera! Van Hoprno,
of the Dutch East India Company, received a few coffee seeds from traders
who plied between the Arabian Gulf
and Java, rhoso seeds were planted,
and grew so well that the industry of
coffee-growing in Java received a tremendous impetus. Oue or tbe plants
first grown there was sent to the Governor of tue Dutch East India Company.
It was planted in Holland, and seeds
from it were sent to the West Indies,
and then to other parts of the world.
WOODCHUCK WAS SCOUT

Willoughby'b Ordeal
piIKV all liked Willoughby—nay,
I there were not a few who bad a
real affection for the man; but
even at that they could hardly bo blind
to certain ot his shortcomings, which,
as Hurley Blithers had aaid, made him
utmost a social impossibility. That he
bad worked himself up from tho ranks
was wholly to hia credit, and none of
the set iu which he moved were over
■mobhish enough to throw his extraction in his face. What if hia father bad
been a custom-house inspector;* How-
over society might frown upon such a
one as this, it certainly bad no valid
reason fi.r visiting its diapleasure upon
his sou, aud Willoughby could not bo
blamed for his choice'of a paternal
parent. It was as much an accident <>f
birth that hud made him this as was
that which made Lord de Noodles thu
son of the Duke of Baroacres, aud mure-
over Willoughby wus himself such nn
livorlustingly good fellow that he might
even have beeu the son of a member of
the Hoard of Aldermen and still have
passed muster.        '
But there was one respect in which
willoughby appeared to he almost hopeless, and that was in the matter of h'
dress. He would wear a flaming red
four-in-hand and white spats when he
walked on the Avenue, and this wheth
er or uot he wore a double-breasted sack
coat, a cutaway, or a frock—the last of
which, by the way, he persisted in call
ing a "Prince Albert." He had been
told many a timo at the club by his intimates that these things were not cor
root, but somehow or other, either because he did not care or for the reason
that his mind was too much preoccupied
with more Immediately important mutters, the expostulations of his friends
seemed to make uo impression upon
bis mind.
The fact that be had appeared in the
Easter Bundav parade wearing n Norfolk jacket, tan shoes, aud a brand-new,
shiny silk hat, hnd given society boiiic
ihiig to talk about for weeks' there
after, and more than ono coinicil of war
had been held by those who really cared
for him, to devise, if possible, some
means by which his reformation might
be brought about. Marked copies of the
leading fashion journals were sent to
him anonymously through the mails.
Home of tlie best dressers in town took
pains to introduce him to their tailors.
ii fact which Willoughby, unfortunate
ly, set down to the credit of reasons
other than his sartorial aggrandizement,
having heard that these self-same best
dressers profited financially by these Introductions whenever the introduced
loft an order behind him on departing,
"It is really a confounded shame!"
said his most intimate friend. Harrison
Higwahiiior, "Willoughby is one of nature's masterpieces, and the* idea of his
framing himself up like ii' tea-store
chrome is most distressing."
Tt was shortly after this observation
of Higwalader's that the conspiracy resulting in Willoughby's ordeal was
hatched. What it. was will be best un-
■'eiNtood by :;n acco.int of Miss Gladys
Do Mann's famous ball, where it was
put into operation. The smartest of the
smart were in attendance, aud among
others invited was Willoughby. It so
happened that upon tbe evening in ques-
i he was detained at hia office very
lute, nnd the clocks all over the city
'ere striking two when he arrived. The
guests were assembled tn tho sumptuous
banqueting-bul! which Colonel De Munii
bad imported at enormous expense from
the Palazzo KadtlZEJ at Florence, and
there, as Willoughby entered, a repaiM
prepared bv Holsherrico was being served. He presented a quaint picture as he
stood in the doorway looking around
vainly for Gladys, ITe woro, as usual,
bis rather tight-fitting clawhammer coat,
a mauve waistcoat, and a tatln shoestring tie of the sort that cornea ready
made and fastens with a buckle at the
back of the neck. Surmounting this
was a turn-down collnr, with n considerable roll, revealing Willoughby's
neck in all its massive proportions. H-b
hair, parted on the side, sho-ne resplend
ently with the damp of a well-moistened
brush. />s be looked about him a great
social sigh went up from the multitude.
Would this man never learn that a
black tie does not go with full even
ing dress, and that the made up variety
is never worn by people with any pretensions to form! And the horror of
that ..waistcoat. stning across with a
broad black band with a cut --ft old monogram of the wearer stuck like a postage
stamp nthwort the middle button! And
poor Willoughby's suBpcnders — how
they must be groaning under the tension of holding those trousers so high
aloft that tbe rubber sidea of his Con
gross gniters with the imitation bend
button attachments at the aides, were
fully displayed I The sigh became ii
gasp, and a stern look appeared upon
the faces of all the men present. Even
Ms friends gazed coldly at him, and
turned away.
Willoughby, utterly unconscious of
the impression his unfortunate garments
had made upon the assembly, hastened
to one of the tables where sat Chi.Hie
Van Bonder, and was about to address
him when Van Dooder, without looking
at his face, observed coldly, "Well.
waiter, you have heen long enough with
that ernsomme!"
Willoughby was Btnnned. Waiter! He
a waiter? To he mistaken by his friend
ChoIHe Van Dooder for one of Del-
sherrico's men—that was a crowning
insult! What he might have done bad
there been time we do not know, so tumultuous were the tnoughts that surged
through biB brain; but just then he
heard another voice from the rear:
"I say, Henri, or Pierre, or Jacques,
whatever your confounded name is, why
don't you hustle along with that saladef
Do you want us to starve to death

He terned sharply, and with dismay

Willoughby slurted, and waa about to

then, from all sides of the room, directed straight at him, came snappings of

"Onrcr.nl"
"Balade here, you snaill"

And so on. A perfect babel, as in t

A RINSING HINT
WHKN wasaing fabrics of delicate
color and   in  washing blankets
bo careful to rinse in  water of
tho same temperature as that in which
the garment is washed.
This is particularly necessary iu the
case of blankets, as careful washing is
often rendered useless bv too sudden
Change of temperature in rinsing. In
neither case must the wuter be too
hot.
IN THE itlTOHEN
r() keep tins  from  rusting, it  is t
good plan to placo them near the
lire after they have been washed
and dried.
In washing a pastry board care should
be taken to use the scrubbing brush
nnd sand iu the direction of the grain
of the wood. The dirt is by this meant
removed without scratching the surface.
The Hand should be washed off with
plenty Of cold water, and'the board first
wiped with a clean cloth and then
placed in the air to dry.
HEALTHY CH LDREN
ARE A BLESSING
i
Healthy babies are good babies, nnd
the good baby is a blessing ia every
home. Nothing can give the mother
or father more pleasure than to see
baby pluy. Every movement is watched with delight; every new word spoken
brings pride to the fond purenta. It
is ouly the sickly baby that makes the
home wretched—and, mothers, it is not
baby's fault when he is sick. You
arc "the one to blame. Perhaps yon
give aim candies, cakes, and other food
which his little stomach is unablo to
digest. 'Then when he is cross and ailing you give him somo "soothing"
mixture to quiet him. That is wrong—
remember his little stomach is' not at
strong as a grown person's, and also
remember thnt every spoonful of the
"soothing" mixture you give him only
does him more injury—it does not remove the canse of hia fretfulncss—it
merely dopes him into nn unnatural
sleep. What is needed is Baby's Own
Tablets—a medicine with a guarantee
of safety. About them Mrs. Mnthlet
McCormick, West St. Peters, I'.KX,

DAME FASHION'S
DECREES
THE absolute necessity uf the tea gown in the fashionable
outfit of to ilny in well rocogllljted, nml the woman who
does not include two or three ut leu At iu her season'a
Wardridii' is either terribly ecoitouiiciil or a very poi.r manager. It has been well proven (hat to wear the street gi.wn
tn the bouse In a gr-nt mistake urn' ti greitl c\tru\'iigitni-i- as
Well, for ihe house wear is fur harder tor the street gown,
Which, besides, is made ef materials quite too heavy for indoor
Wenr. The ten gown is also uu aid to ecoinptiy when the
•matt In.ii4(i ,|n>ss Is concerned, for it entl be mitdo elaborate
fiua Crepe aud Lace Tea Gown
enough to take the place of the simpler style of dinner gown
and for home wear is far more attractive than a more elaborate reception gown or the half worn gowu of the preceding
■eason.
There are so many different styles of tea gowns that it is
possible to have quite a number, and each one unlike the other
excepting in general lines, and these lines must be long and
grateful no mutter what material is used. Lace plays au important part*in the fashionable tea gowu. Often the entire
gown is made of it or there is a long lace coat. The under*
■kirt aud the waist may be of the lace, or it may be used
Only as trimming, but no matter how it is used it ia essential.
Chiffon, marquisette, voile de soie and bice net all are materials suitable for the tea gowu, while if something heavier
ie desired there are the exquisite crepe de Chine, liberty satin,
Telvet, and even the satin finished doth. It is unusual to
have merely the one material in the gown; two or more are
always combined, and varied colors also are demanded, so
that it is uot dllllcult to understand what a variety there is
^o be bad.
Velvet and brocade tea gowns are this season very smart;
they are ou the roat order, hanging straight from the shoulders, often without sleeves aud with wide arm holes, so that
the entire undress shows and the velvet and brocade looks,
and in fact is, quite separate, like a cloak of wrap. Exquisite embroidery or applique of heavy lace is often used to
trim the velvet COpO, as it. may be called, as it has many
points of resemblance te the cope, und when made ef old brocade is almost too similar to the priests'a robe to be quite
good taste.
Hare old brocades and the lighter weight modern ones nre
charming for this purpose, and when made over an old ball
gown the expense, while none too small, need not be too grout
to deter one from Indlllgil g in tbe fashion. An old luce gown
Or any satin ball gown is all that is required as the under-
•jress, o\'er which i» worn the loose coat of brocade, but it is
a mistake te use any color but white or some light pastel
ehailc with the brocade, as one then quite kills the other.
There are a great mnny very charming colors In the new
crepes that are most attractive for the big loose coat. There
are shaded two-tone effects, pink and blue, blue and mauve,
crimson and palest rose, and they are Indescribably effective,
One of these coats in pink and mauve over a gown of yellowish luce is a most popular model. The coat is sleeveless, bi.
there are undersleeves of the white lace, and on the Bboul
dors buckles of the crepe, and holding the backs and fronts
together at the side are again the same interlaced buckles.
There is no trimming on tbe gown, excepting a jewelled
buckle at tbe waist to fasten the belt, the jewels semiprecious, in colors to match the crepo. If tt mare startling
effect is desired the coat in deep rose pink crepe is certainly
.linking, but care must be tnktu that the shade is just right,
otherwise there is too sharp a contrast with the white lace.
Quite a different order of tea gown, but an extremely
practical one, is made of silk, satin or velvet trimmed with
rnr. It is certainly practical aud warm and moro or less on
the old-fashioned picturesque order. Taffeta silk is always
a popular,material for tea gowns, but as a rule hitherto has
been used in combination with chiffon or lace rather than
for tho entire gown. A hand of fur, ermine in the original
model, but rarely seen in the copies, is tho trimming down
the fronts, and in fact the only trimming. The model is
original and smart, but not nearly so easy to copy as the more
apparently Intricate styles. In the light velvets with lace
instead of the fur it lias proved extremely practical, but at
the same time not nearly so elaborate in appearance.
The all white tea gown is dear to the heart of every
woman wht/ delights in being smartly and becomingly guwued,
but is uot a practical fashion when economy has t'o be con
suited ami when the number of tea gowns has to be limited
tu one or even two. Voile de soie, mnrquisotlc aud lace with
satin are blended in the most bewitching aud fascinating
manner uud, with the uir of studied simplicity that always
Is attached to the white muslin frock, wilh blue ribbons 'in
which the heroines of uuvels invariably attract the wealthy
heroes. 'I Ii. re is no linn, cast iron rule as to how incsu white
tea gowns shall bo made; tltor" is always lace, and mauy
yards of it; sometimes while sntin, just a glint of it tu sht.w
Ihe entire gowu is lined with it; sometimes a white velvet
t-ope or stole. Lingerie and luce are worn as much in winter
us summer, uud the loose coat of crepe, satin, tiill'etu, or velvet
can, if needed, bestow the touch it' warmth and season. Out
of the popular trimmings for Ihe in lie tit and satin is uut i it
bout, softer und lighter than fur, aud swuiisilown und mouf
lion also are now added to the Iriiiimiugs tlmt. are considered
suitable.
All leu gowns tlmt nre teaIIv tea gowns nre supposed (
hang loose and straight in Ihe buck uud the Wattcau pleat
never goes quite ont of fashion. As the stylo most papula
demands a low cut nook, square around, the pleat or the pluli
emit effect fulls froin below Ihe opening at Ihe back ot tin
neck. Mnny of I lie tea gowns nre cut quite low and rcsombh
too elosi ly a pictmesipie dinner gown  to be distinctive, fo
it is really n mistake not to keep the two distinct uud apart,
Kor this sumo reason it is a mistake to have the sleeves of thr
tea gowu too short; elbow length is the best, although It) th
ense of it most elaborate model of luce ind lingerie the hi)
angel sleeve, slashed to the shoulders, is becoming, but evei
with this there cun be a close uiilined sleeve of tulle or net
to take uwity any semblance of its being a dinner gown.
This being u season of brocades and embroideries; there h
an opportunity uud especially just at (his time, to find rare
burginns in remnants that make the most attractive of tea
gowns. Por those who like brilliant colorings there ure mar
velons patterns in the brlgbtcsl of hues (these, too, do nol
look so startling and cru U> when com blued with white lace
or not); while in the softer pastel shades the colorings are
exquisite. Blaclt nnd wh'te is always a smart combination,
aud in the black nnd white and the all black brocades ore
many superb designs. And it takes only a comparatively
small amount of material to turn out nu extremely effective
gowu.
Remodelling of last year's gowns is npl to prove a difficult
piece op work Ibis year, but not io dllueitlt ns some season's
when the fashions of the year before demanded much more
material  than  is now required.     Then   the   combining    of
White Voile and Laco Tea Gowu
materials is a real saving of pennies, for cloth with voile de
soie, velvet with cloth or satin, when last year's gown waa
ull of one miiiurlnl, will mane it look ci.chcly now mil will
mako it possible to change the iiuee by cutting off the lower
part of the Blurt just where it is too wide und daring for this
season 'a styles,
A velvet gown that has been worn enough to look just a
bit shabby In sleeves und upper part uf the wnist can bo
entirely trnnsformed if kimono sleeves and upper part of the
waist be made of satin, and a baud ol' salin down the front
and around the bottom of the skirt wiil make over an old
gown into one that will be smart enough for every occasion.
If so desired the alcoves and upper pint of the waist can be
of chiffon or marquisette over a colored silk lining, or then1
•nny be silver or gold lace or cloth of gold or cloth of sllvoi
instead of silk, bill  the satin is the most   nractical.    If tin"
gown   is  of  ninth  the  nn hiIhiiw'   with   velvet can  be |
carried out with most satisfactory results.
BIRDS   FAMILY AFFAIRS
1'HKOUOH the United States February ia ordiuti-ily the month when
the earliest Hesters among the wild
birds lay their eggs. 'I hose are the owls,
which, iu north und south alike, and
even when the snow lies deep In tbe
rorcstB of th* buuudnry states uud the
lakes are locked in ice, have sought a
home iu a hollow tree, whero their two
eggs are laid.
lief ure the eggs have hatched into
tbe two little bulls of down which are
owlets, the season uf mat lug amoi.g the
othor birds is well under way, to be con
tinned without abatement  into August.
The number of eggs laid by wild
birds in n single "clutch" or sotting
varies greatly among different BptjtloB,
The largest clutches are those of the
quail, which oftcu cover from twenty to
thiity eggs.
At the other extreme are the auks,
penguins, petrels,^tropic birds und the
like, which lay only one egg apiece.
This difference in the number of egg*
is due to differences in tho difficulty of
rearing young. Birds that lay only oue
or two eggs have few enemies, bu,t the
quail, grouse, pheasants, etc., have
many, aud larger broods must be rear
ed,
The king penguin, a large antarctic
bird, protects its oue big white egg from
harm by currying it somewhat as tt mur
BUpinl dues its young--lu a pouch form
ed by a .old of the skin of the belly
between the tb'ghs. Uoth sexes are
provided with this contrivance during
the breeding season, and relieve each
other of the bunion at intervals,
Tho shape of eggs is in many In
stances a wise precaution of nature fur
their protection, The eggs of birds that
Itty on bare rocks or in exposed places
with little or no nest ure almost always
sharply pointed at cue end, with ihe
result that if they start to roll Ihey
will simply turn u complete uud small
circle, coming buck to the point from
which they started. The eggs of birds
that make their nests in hollows in tht
ground or trees, where there 1b no dan
ger of rolling out, arc more nearly ovals
than are those of any other birds.
The coloring and marking of eggs are
also protective precautious. Those eggs
that are pure white are usually laid
by birds whose nests aro well protected
from the eyes of enemies, as for ex
ample the eggs of the woodpeckers and
owls, which build in holes in trees. The
highly colored eggs are laid by bird
whose nests are more or less hidden
among the foliage of tbe trees. In almost every instance eggs laid unprotected on the ground aro marked aud colored to resemble their surroundings so
closely that it is difficult to detect them
even when locking directly at them.
The flicker is peculiar in that she can
be "bled" of her eggs. If every two
or more days all the eggB but one or
two are taken from her nest, she will
continue to lay until she has deposited
from tuirty to forty eggs. Toward the
lust these will diminish in siza until
the very last one will bo less tfaK half
the size of her typical egg. There in
on record a case where one of.these
birds laid seventy one eggs in seventy-
three days,
Tho long continued laying of domes
tic fowls is a result of similar treatment. If left alone, the domestic heu
would lay a litter of from ten to twenty
eggs and then stop.
The egg of the extinct aepyornis
would hold more than two gallons, and
was equal to a gross uf ordinary ben's
eggs. 'IHe emu lays the largest egg of
any bird living.
Were one to spread out a collection
of eggs according to size, grading them
carefully from the least to the greatest, it would be found that this gradation did not at all correspond to a similar arrangement of the bodies of the
parent birds. In other words, birda cf
like size do not, in every instance, lay
eggs of the same dimension.
The ravon and the iruillemot are of
about equal bulk, but their eggs differ
as. one to ten, the latter s being nearly the size of those of an eagle. The
Knglish snipe and blackbird differ little
in weight, but the former's eggs are as
large as those of a partridge. Still
more remarkable are the eggs of the
Australian megapodes, ono of which
measures three and one-quarter by two
and one-hnlf inches, although the bird
that lays it is about the sine of a com
men fowl.
The smallest egg relatively to the size
of the bird laying it is that of the Euro
penn cuckoo. This is explained by the
fact that she puts her eggs in the nests
of other birds for them to incubate, and
is under the necessity of carrying the
•trg iu her bill to the nest of its futuro
inster mother.
Young birds are hatched in three
stages of development. All tho small
land birds nnd birds of prey aro hatch-
id quite naked, but soon assume a
lowny covering, which is replaced by
feathers before thoy leave the nest. In
another class the young are not batch
ed until tho second stage has been
reached, the downy covering being obtained before the chick leaves tho shell.
In this division are the domestic fowls,
>n birds, etc. There remain a very
few t.the mound turkeys) whose young
re hutched in the third stage, fully
Hedged und ready to Hy. It is well they
■him Id be, for in some species no old
ones arc at hand to help them, parental
litty endine us soon as the parents have
uade a mound of rotting vegetation
and left the eggs buried thereiu to bo
hatched by the chemical heat.
It is evident that wheu a young bird
s required to remain inside an egg UU
til it hns reached an advanced stage of
growth, it must be provided with it
larger    chamber   and   with   a   greater
mint of nourishment for ita prolong
id embryonic sustenance, aud this implies an increased drain upon the physical resources of the mother, amounting
in the case of the kiwi to tbe pruritic
tion of nn egg nearly a quarter of the
bird's weight. It is plain that few
such eggs ran be produced bv a single
10ther. Hence we find that iu every
ase whero eggs of excessively dispro
portionate bulk are laid, only a single
egg is deposited at one setting, and
that, as a rule, few eggs iu a orood
mean relatively large oi.es,
The period uf incubation is apparently closely dependent upon t..e sikd uf
the egg. It varies from ten days with
the hummin"-bird to more thau forty
with the ostrich, aud, it is said, about
fiftv witu the emu.

INDIANS IN SPOET
NO  nation  has produced,  in proportion   to   his   percentage   ef   people,
more  fumed  aud  gallant athletes
than  the  American   Indian, and   he  is
not confined to any one realm of sport.
Chief Albert Hendcr, of tho Athlet
ics, is one of the best pitchers who ever
trampled a burling heap, and for the
Athletics ne has won his share uf games
in three pennant races—1902, Uhi.1, and
11)10—and he won a game in tho worli"
series this season. Ile is, according to
Ira Thomas,, tho greatest speed pitcher
in the country, and the cutest curve
dinger in either league. Thomas has
faced the Cubs several times in world's
series. He bus caught for Detroit nnd
the Athletics, and should know the by
paths of the American league,
Mender is one of tho best shots In
Ihe land, and he is to work for one of
the big gun factorrOB this winter. Bender started to shoot as a youngster, but
until lu- competed nguinst Ihe crack
shots he had uo idea that he was ono
of the best marksiiicn in ihe laud. It
is seldom that a big shoot is held but
that Bender's name is seen iu print,
near I he top of the list, too.
Chief Myers, of the New Yorks, is
rated us a catcher who wilt in a few
seasons amply fill the shoes of Robert
BroBiinbnn, late Giant, new manager of
the Curd Inn la. Myers* has been a big
help to Manager Mcflruw, aud in addi
tiou to being a backstop who, with his
Indian wile baffles the best batsmen,
he is a sticker of no mean rank. II
greatly aided the Highlanders in the
New  York  States championship.
Boxalexts .the Indian outfielder, of
Cleveland, was ono of the best baseball
players who retired and went back to
fhe mines before ho reached his prime.
He was as good a thrower as ever shut
a ball from tho outer garden to the
plate, and a corking bitter and a splendid man on the bases. He was ordered
to report one season when he wus ill.
A telegram was flashed him saying thnt
unless he came at once he would go
back to tbe small league. This started
him on the paint path and he dissipated. He drifted down grade swiftly
and never proved his real merit as a
big league star.
Few sons of the forest over own more
than small craft of tbe waters, but
they never had a master at canoe pad'
dling. Borne of their work in the rapids was never equalled by tbe frontiersmen or guides.
Motor cars are ont of reach or desire
of most Indians, but in Tobin de Hy-
mel, who pilots a huge racing ear, the
sons of the forest have as faultless and-
daring a driver as over entered a curve
rushing like the wind ablest.
De Hymel has been driving only a
short timo, but his tnrilling turn-taking
in the Vanderbilt and Fairmount Park
race is still talked of along Gasoline
Row by Iniladelphians.
On the carpeted green the Indians
are feared by every college in America
that plays them, and, as a matter of
fact, Princeton and Pennsylvania alone,
of the big four, meet the redskins on
the football field.
Mount Pleasant was one of the best
quarterbacks who ever trampled a grid
iron. This lean, fleet-footed fellow was
almost on a par with Vincent Steven
son, except that he did not have the
band of marvels in front of him and
built about him which was the fortune
of the greatest of all quarterbacks.
Pete Ilouser, tbe juggernaut line ramming full-back; Ben-is and Hawley
Pierce, the great linemen of the Carlisle team .and Wausega, the tumbling
ball who tore up the lines of Pennsylvania and Harvard, were all famous
Carlisle Indians,
Frank Hudson the greatest kicker,
not barring Pat O'Dea, Marshall, Reynolds, Billy Bull, or John de Witt, who
ever hoisted a spiral, was an Indian,
He wbb the greatest goal kicker
known to football, and one of his best
stunts wns to stand in front of the
goalposts with five footballs in his
arms. He would drop them in quick
succession to the ground, and as each
t oiicbcd the ground be toed them
through the goal posts. He could drop
kick as far aB 65 yards.
Mount Pleasant was a crack broad
jumper, and went to England with Mike
Murphy to tbe Olympic games. Thorpe,

What the Editor has to Bay.
The Lord's Day Alliance people in Nanaimo are trying to
stop Sunday football in that city.
If these misguided fanatics would only realize it, in many
capes those who at present enjoy a game of Sunday football,
either as spectators or players, will soon be engaged in pursuits and amusements far more to the Devils liking if this
healthy sport is denied them.
Scottish red deer are soon to be imported to this province by the Provincial Game Warden in order to add to the
big game assets of the province.
If the animals take kindly to British Columbia conditions
and climate, it is intended to put some of them out on one of
the islands in the Gulf where they will be free from molestation.
It is also proposed to introduce the chamois in this province.

In consequence of the increase of drunkeness and other re
lated forms of lawlessness on Indian reserves in BritishColum-
bia, the department of Indian affairs is said to be considering
the advisability in the near future of establishing a special reserves police system for this province.
If this system is adopted, and there is now said to be every probability of this being done, intelligent Indians will be
employed as constables, under the direction of white officers.
In certain districts it is proposed to employ white police exclusively.

In another column,will be seen a letter from Mr. F. B.
Cloutier, complaining of the sewer near his home, and in
order to convince us that he was not over-stating the case he
persuaded us to visit the locality complained of.
We are convinced all right.
The stench arising from the sewerage soaked swamp is
about as mal-odorous as an overdue funeral of a deceased
horse, and if it is not attended to now it is a certainty that il
will become very much worse with the advent ot really hoi
weather
We know that it is the policy of the present council to
do little or nothing to the existing sewers until it is seen whether the people are willing to replace the worn out sewers we
have, with an up-to-date sewerage system, or not,
While the Council is undoubtedly wise iu refusing to do
any patchwork that is not absolutely necessary until the sewerage question is settled, one way or the other, we believe that i:
would be daugerous to allow the conditions we have spoken of
to continue any longer than is absolutely necessary and we
would suggest that it be attended to at once.
It is stated that all the Provincial Premiers who attend
the coronation of King George are to have titles conferred upon them. It will soon be, "Sir Richard McBride," and he will
be the first British Columbian to be thus honored. If there is
any honor in having a prefix tacked on his cognomen, Dick is
certainly entitled to it, for he has given the people of this province good government. Personally we don't think much of
titles; they don't sit very well upon the shoulders of a citizen
of this free and glorious west.

THE VARIED COLOR OT THE
SEVEN SEAS
IT has been proved that the blueneas
of sea-water is in constant ratio to
its saltness. In the tropics the tre
meudous evaporation induced by the
blazing sun causes tbe water to be
much more salt than it is iu higher latitudes. Por about thirty degrees bid u
north and south of tho equator the
waters of the world's oceans are of an
exquisite :r/,ure. Beyond thesp latitudes
the blue fades, and changes to green,
and in the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans
the greens arc almost as vivid as the
tropical  bines.
'he exl raordinary hlneness of the
Mrdilerannean has two causes. One is
that very few large rivers of fresh
water run into this sea; Ihe second, that
Moditcrrairt.au is prnetieally laud
locked, and, being exposed to a power
ful sun, evaporation is' great. ■ Bv actual test, the waters of the Moditerad
nean nro heavier and moro salt than
those of the Atlantic.
Itut blue and greeu are not the only
colors observed in the world's seas and
oceans, lu January, 1909, u river of
yellow water, three miles wide, and of
enormous length, wus observed running
parallel with the Gulf Stream.' It
stretched from Cape Florida to Cape
HatterttB, and was undoubtedly caused
by some tremendous submarine upheaval, probably of a volcanic nature.
Again, about nine years ago, the sea
turned almost black off a large portion
of the California coast, The whole of
Santa Cruz Bay assumed this extraordinary inkv hue, and fishing came abruptly to an end. In this case, the darkness seems to have been caused by mil-
liens of tiny animalcules, known as
whale-food.
Tbe dull-reddish tint which is occasionally seen in the Red Sea. and which
has given that sea its name, has a similar cause. The water becomes full of
microscopic algae—tiny weed.
China's Yellow Sea is usually sup-
p.'ied to owe its origin to the flood of
muddy water which its gnat river pours
into it. But here, again, modern science
has proved that living organisms are
responsible for its peculiar tint.
Occasionally, and for some cause att
yet undiscovered, great areas of the
ocean turn milk-white. Tn March, 1904,
the pessenger" and crew of a Jnpanew
merchant-vessel, steaming at night be
tween Hong Kong .tnd Yokohama, ran
into a snow-white sea. It was an opaque,
phosphorescent surface, but an expanse
of pure snow-white, having a dazzling
effect upon the eyes. The phenomenon
lasted ior six hours, and alarmed the
passengers so greatly that not one slept
at all that night.
MECHANICAL COTTON PICKER
I AM CONVINCED that the machine
must and will rank in the future
with such inventions an the gin,
the sewing machine, or the drawing and
spinning tnune." Such is the verdict
pronounced by Mr. II. K. vValmsloy, ex-
president of the .New England Spin*
tiers' Association, on the mechanical
cotton plckor which 1ms heen invented
by Mr. Angus Campbell, a Scotch Chi-
cagoan. 'me invention is described by
Mr. A. W, Page in the American
World's Work.
It is the outcome of years of patient
and stubborn toil by  Mr. i.ampbell:
"Ho experimented witn every kind
of a wooden finger, from one an inch
and a half in diameter to one a fourth
the size. Tie put hog bristles ou some
and wire bristles on others. Finally he
evolved a steel finger with slightly indented teeth thnt can be turned on a
polished mahogany table without even
scratching it, hut that will take hold
of any cotton-fibre thnt it touches. Mr.
Campbell progressed from a horizontal
cylinder   to   two   upright cylinders in
which the fingers wero fixed, then to
cylinders in which the fingers turned
as well as the cylinders, He experimented with bevel-gear drives and
spiral drives, with different speeds for
the lingers mul cylinders, and with
many devices for stripping the cotton
front the fingers after the fingers hud
taken it from the plant."
The gasoline engine came in time to
save bin earlier inventive efforts. The
present outcome is thus deserihed:
"It is a small gasoline traction engine, with two locking attachments
swung under it, and a pair of canvas
hags hung ont behind. It travels
th rough the field nbout as fast as a
man walks, Inking the cotton plant between the wheels, where it is picked
over by almost countless revolving steel
lingers which catch the lint but leave
the plant uniniured. so that the later
bolls may mature. To leave the unripe
bolls has bee. the grout difficulty in
making a  niecltanieal bat ton  picker,
" A cotton picking machine to br
commercially successful must he aide t<
nick the open bolls without injury to
the unopened bolls and blooms, or to
the foliage and the plant itself. It must
do this faster nnd at a lower cost than
can he done by hand, and it must he
able automatically and mechanically to
Hscritritnnte between the ripe and unripe bolls."
Campbell's machine meets nil these
requirements, It is not merely a mechanical, it is a commercial success.
Five mechanical cotton pickers will do
the. work of five hundred negroes. It
costs seventy-five dollars to go over a
hundred-acre farm once with a machine,
and one hundred and fifty dollars to
pick the hundred acres over twice,
which it could do in twenty-five days.
Done by hand, tbe work would cost between five and eight hundred dollars,
and it would take twelve hands more
than twenty-five days to complete the
task. The mechanical cotton picker is
arranged so that the machine can he
taken off and a plough, planter, harrow
or any other farm implement ean be
hitched to the twenty-nine hone-power
tractor.
This machine is expected to remove
the restrictions on the Southern cotton crop due to the belt of hrtior, It-
is also exnoeteil to put so much money
into the farmer's pocket aa to destroy
the tenant system.

has been sold to go to Austria. Hob
Douglas, 2.04%, was shipped frum New
York last Saturday and is now ou his
way to his new home. He Was bred
hy thnt noted Bostonian, George W.
Leavitt, and is hy that famous young
stallion Todd, who died in the morning of a great stud career. At the time
of his sale he was owned by D. N,
Hyaitih. of Ponknpoag, Mass. He first
made his appearance as a three-year-
old, under the unme of Douglas. He
only started twice and won both events.
At Narragansett Park, K.I., he won In
2.1«V» and 2.19%* and at Hartford he
won tho 10,000 Charter Oak Futurity,
trotting both heats in 2,12%, Ho was
not campaigned as a four-year-old, but
was carefully prepared for bis five-
year-old campaign. His first start was
at*the Grand Circuit meeting at Detroit,
where he defeated a good field in 2.10%,
Two weeks later he defeated a fast
field, including Peuisa Maid! in 2,07%,
2.06VI and 8.06%, At Buffalo he won
a four-heat rare in straight heats in
2.06V,, 2.07V., 2,08'/, and 2.06%, which
ie a record for a race of four straight
ncats. At Hartford he had the distinguished honor of defeating Tbo Harvester in the first heat of the classic
$111,000 rluirter-.CM'; Stake in 2.00%,
but wns .defeated .■b^the future champion in the ntfxt$wlr heats in slower
time. His most noflfbM achievement
last year was winning t^c\li$)0OO handicap at Readville, which he did ajrainat
a great field. The distance was 'one
mile and a quarter, and with Sonoma
Girl tie was handicapped BOO foet. He
went to the front like the real racehorse that he is, and won in 2.19. This
proved to he a demonstration that he
would make a lirst class handicap horso
for European racing. He met The Harvester again at Hartford, and though
defeated he forced the great horse.out
in 2,03. At Syracuse he defeated Sonoma Girl and .lack Ley burn in 2,04%, I
This made him the second fastest stab
lion on the American trotting turf. We
regard Ins sale as a greal loss to the
breeding, interests of America, and the
price must have been a most tempting
one, for he could certainly earn $10,000
a year in .the stud here. Tho great difficulty which wo huve to meet is that
as soon aa a trotter gets below 2.05 bis
racing usefulness la over. IHs a paradox, but under our present system our
fastest have no races for them. ' Their'
only chance to earn money ie in exhibition against time. The oniv big
winning made by Boh Douglas last year
was in the handicap at Boston. He now
goes to a country whore handicaps are
the principal events on the card', and
will have a big chance to win bimtitn

Elkmouth,  B.C.— (Special) —Frank

kinds of   weather,  has  discovered  that
Dodd's   Kidney   Pills  are   a   sovereign
remedy for those kidney ills that almost
invariably follow neglected colds.
"For four years I suffered froin Lumbago, Heart Disease and Rheumalism,
brought on from a cold," says Mr,
Miller. "And I got the very best results
from using Dodd's Kidney Pills. I
freely recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills
to anyone Buffering from these dis
eases."

iiodd's Kidney Pill.-*. They go right
to the point. They cure ttie Kidney-.
Henltny Kidneys strain all the impuri-

means good circulation and renewed
life and energy all over the body.
Thus Dodd's Kidney Pills not only
cure disease. They tone up the whole

why people all over Canada are shouting
the praises of Dodd's Kidney Pills.

college and its friends. At the same
time this does not keep me from placing my disapproval of the game as il
is developed In our American colleges,
" Football has heen played in Kngland a long time. It appears io be in $

meat hears ample record of the antagonism hetween the .hulair.ing Christiana
and those who no longer bound then

Jewish nation retained its independence

might have been less easy; hut the fall
of Jerusalem in tho year 7(1 overthrew
the priestly hierarchy and loft the way

Paul.

exposition. It U a ' remarkable contribution to our knowledge1 of the rather
obscure period of leu'ish history which
evened between the re establishment of*]

Mut Dr. lUurgollouth's suggestion is
that Dr. Scheehter had antedated his
•leriod' and that the sect iu question
was actually one of the earliest bodies
0" .Jewish ehrlslians. Here is Dr. .Mar-
goHniith's explanation:
'Oae of the first clear  Impressions
toward the Baptist und Jesus were none
other than the Hoethusians (perhaps
identical with tht! great compuuy of
believiug priests of Acts vi., 7), who
not unnaturally liked to dwell ou the
Ideutity of meaiui.g between their name
aud that r.f the 'Teaeher' Uule*s, indeed, a better explanation of the phrase

say that we have here come upou the
true key to every part of the riddle
aud the entire situation.

who is 'sent' throughout Israel tu per-
vort the nation aud turn them a way
from the Law? It is clear that if the
two p.rooodiug ideutificationa are correct this third personage must be uone
othor than Caul the Apostle, who would

of tho faith-
"Such are the Identifications here
proposed, and it is clear that if accept*
oil they would constitute a striking reference to the sect's Christian origin
by the virtually iioutemporary Jewish
writer.
"Another apparently inevitable conclusion of the whole matter, therefore,
is that we have .here to deal with a
primitive Jmlaeo Christiau body of people who consisted of priests and Levites
belongii g to the Moelhiisian section of
the Sadduceao party, fortified—lis the
ilocumeiit shows—by a considerable Israelite, h lay element, besides u real
and contemplated admixture of prose
lyton."
If Dr. Margoliouth's interpretation
ho correct we have in this document a
Christian record antedating that of the
earliest of the Gospels—thnt of Mark,
whose composition is generally believed
0 have occurred at about the end of
the first century of the present era.

of a  religious leader lo Ins  fullowe
Invite; down in the form of a manifesto
Ihe principles of belief and practice by
which  they  were  th be guided, and  at
he   same   time   especially   denouncing
erl.'iia oppoi ei.ts of the religious views
which be wishes established,
Wc at the outset meet with the
beliefs in two great personages who had
been sent to strengthen and enlighten
e Hebrew nation. The first of these
was Ihe Messiah (though not distinctly
so styled at the begiiii.jng of the document) ct.niinc 'from the family of Aaron and from Isreal,' and the'second is
styled the 'Teacher of Righteousness,'
who was also designated by the title
of Messiah.
"Thoso Messiahs had died when the
document was composed, but they were
both expected to appear 'in the" latter
days.' A third personage, called in one
place a 'man of BCoffing' and in another
'Belial,' is put forward as u special
mark for denunciation. The charge
made against him is that he was engaged lu detaching the people from the ordinances of the Law and sound principles of morality.
"The question, then, is what historic
characters nre meant by these three
personages. If we can succeed lu find
lug the right answer to this question
the problem will be solved. Professor
Schcchter's answer—which, to do him
justice, is put forward with much hesi-
th Hon—sooths unsatisfactory on all
points.
" Xow, it seems impossible to read'
the charhetorUatioh of the Messiah do
sceitdel from \nroii aud Israel, at the
beginning of tho text, without think
it g of John the Baptist. John the Bap
tist, be it remembered, was the son of
a priest. According to Luenn tradition,
mother was also of priestly descent,
But this does not stand in the way of
telieving thnt there was a strain of
unpriestlv Israeli11sb blood in the family. TTiih particular branch of the sect
consisted, its we shall see later, mainly
of, priests and Israelites, and it was
therefore necessary to assign to their
Messiah au origin which would satisfy
both parlies.
"There seems, therefore, nothing
strange in the supposition here put forward that John the Bantist, whose hiirh
mission was acknowledged by targe
numbers uf the people, was acclaimed
by the priestly party as in some senso
a Messiah or 'anointed' loader of tho
nation. t
"But a more important identification
is to follow. If Tohn the Baptist was
the priestly Messiah referred to nt the
beginning of the document, the 'Teacher of Righteousness' who is stated to
hnvo followed him must be Jesus himself.

TEE/. SURE OF WAR TTMES HIDDEN IN MARSHLAND
MANY* and varied are the stories of
lost treasures. It would seem almost that in all tbe earlier settled
districts of Ontario there aro treasures
buried, to find which would mean eternal opulence to Ihe fortunate finder.
Many of these stories are undoubtedly
myths, but it is equally true that a
goodly minuter are based upon more or
loss authentic facts, so that a story of
a lost treasure that in itself evidence*
ti considerable degree of reasonableness,
nnd is su.-slant iated by material ev'i-
lence ami the word of people yet living, may not be uuinterestit g.
About midway between the towns of
Oshawa and Whitby, ou the north shore
f Lake Ontario, is situated what appears at the present time to be nothing
nore Hum a bleak, barren marsh, with
tn an inviting bogs aud dense over
growth of rushes aud vegetation peculiar to such places. It was not always
thus, uowevpr, for niuny years ago this
nine urea was a body of water of cou-
tdcrable dep'tu, being iu reality a bay
of the lake. 'I lie story goes thai during
Hie war with the I'nited States in 1813
the bay afforded shelter tt. a Canadian
schooner while engaged in eurrvii'-' gold
specie from Kingston for the pay of the
mililia' stationed nt Vork, Trie vessel
was sailing up tho bike before tl brisk
sou'easter late in the afternoon of a
September day in the year 1818, and
whon a few miles west of Oshawa har
hor it sighted an American boat, one of
thu pirate type that were prevalent on
ihe great hikes durintr Ihe war and
wrought J8VQC with Canadian vessols,
The Captain knew the coast fairly well,
and he immediately thought of the bay
as a means of escape, reckoning that the
American boat, being of greater
Iruught. would be unable to navigate
tho comparatively shallow entrance.
Witu all haste he put into tbe bay, aud
his surmise proved to be correct, for,
while he was able to work up the bay
till he was a considerable distance from
the lake, the gunboat, hv reason of it*
draught, was unable to enter. Not to
be daunted, the Americans stood ou as
lose to thp shore as they dared and
ommenced to bombard the Canadian
host,. The captain, fearing lest they
might land nnd attack him on shore,
thought it best to unload his cargo and
endeavor to conceal it in the woods back
from the shore. The task was extremely
arduous because of thp absence of any
semblance of a dock, involving the necessity of carrying the gold in small
boats* ns far inshore as possible, and
shouldering it the remnlnder of the distance over the bog and uncertain fnot-
ing which old stumps and sunken legs
provided.
Hy dint of perseverance, inspired by
he momentary fenr of assault at the
hands of the enemy, the task was finally
nccnmnl'shed and the trensnre temporarily secured In concealment. Darkness
began tn fall ovor the land, which added.
security to the position, since it nOVrd-
ed more complete concealment, and because of the fact tint the Americans,
when there was insufficient light to
enable them to direct their fire, simply
sailed away, to the great delight of the

was most difficult, considering that nil

had to curry Ihe kegs of gold, nor is
it at nil improbable that, ut) Hie i-tory
goes, oue of the kegs was dropped dor-
