Vancouver has latterly been having private experiments made
with Douglas fir at the Wilmington -distillation plant and from
the results is very sanguine as to
the future of this prospective industry. It has already been
demonstrated that a single cord
of fir is capable of producing
thirty gallons of creosote or forty
bushels of charcoal, and the

And he point,; oul the necessity
of having the R. C. miners under
the thumb of the U.M.W. of A.
so that the output of thc Van*
couver Island mines can be curtailed when it comes into competition with tho Washington coal
mines. This mean:', that when
some of the Washington mines
are short of markets and thc
Washington miners are consequently working half time, the
B. C. miners will also be compelled to work half time, so
as to give the Washington
mines a better chance to do allcj
business. No matter how
great the demand for Vancouver
Island coal or how small the pay
of thc Vancouver Island miners,
Mr, Farrington will see that the
American interests are served
first, before the British Columbia
miners asd operators have a
chance to reap the benefits from
the superior quality of their coal.

The petitions committee of the
Reichstag, before whose attention
Herr Brehm succeeded after fifteen
years' effort in bringing his case, has
now recommended the Government to
revise the laws providing indemnification for persons wrongfully convict. <_.
Herr Brehtr at the time of his conviction had an eetato of $100,000. as

The time is July, ITStl. The scene Is
Paiis. The revolutionary crowds are
in the streets. The Bastille Is being
beseiged. And it orowd of decadent
aristocrats are seeking amusement in
th; Green Cockatoo.
Prosper, the proprietor of the Green
Cockatoo, was once a theatrical manager, anil is a man of Ideas ,u originality. Hi Inn is; 'i underground cellar, and hero ev..y niglit tlie actors
und actresses of bis company pretend
to be criminals, One is n murderer,
another a thief, a third a bully, and
they tell frightful stories of their
crimes to an audience of besatined exquisites.
i*. Is all enake-bciieve and yel nol
all, ami ine real and tlu imitation are
woven together with masterly skill. A
real murderer creeps In among tho
players and is, of course, at once rejected by the audience ns an amateur.
and the fantastic becomes the tragic
before the end.
Henri, tit star of Ihe romptny, lias
married tlie pretty actress, Leotailio.
The audience knows site is unfaithful
to him nnd ...at the Due tli Cidlgan
Is her lover. Henri rushes Inlo the
oollar dlstrnughl With tierce gasp-
Ing words he relate- how he has
caught the due lu his wife's dressing
room and has stabbed him.
The nrlstocratB applaud wildly.
Never have they seen such line acting,
Put Henri's followers nre disturbed.
They know Ihe facts. And Ihe audience feels that here Is reality and
not sham.
As he finish*s the : oh sweeps Into
the cellar. Th, Bastille has fallen.
Henri, the man who has killed a due,
is acclaimed a patriot and a hero. Ho
is bewildered, He has only been
play-acting all o lime. The due
himself rushes in tt find his friends.
Henri looks at Ilia*, and the freiuy
round him gets Into his blood. It is
true that he Is Leocadte'g lover. He
knows that. It la true that he Is
an aristocrat. And tc stabs him on
the stairs.
Invasion of Modern Ideas to Follow
That of the Balkan Powers
Constantinople, Turkey.- 'Hello!
Are you tlu Pera? I want to speak to
the sultan, please!'
The above will doubtless be one of
the first calls put through In Constantinople this autumn, when a new
revolution, every whit as far reaching
as the present political upheavals,
will take ace. The revolution will
be no less t'.an tbe instillation ot a
complete telephone service in the
Turkish capital for the lirst time in
Its veneraMe history.
The company responsible for the
instalation Is i .0 Soclete Anonyme Ottomans des Telephones de Constantinople The backbone of Ihe new
Turkish company is formed by high
officials and a large number of the
staff of tho National Telephone Company, of Loti-on, who with the taking
over of.the British telephone service
hy the government, sought and obtained new outlets for tlieir energies,
Stanley J. Goddard, th eformer general superintendent 0.' the National,
for instance, is prosit! nt of the Turkish company, while Douglas Watson,
former district superintendent at
Glasgow is director genera! and secretary.
Nearly twenty exchanges with considerably more than 6000 lines, will be
opened iu greater Constantinople, on
either bank of the Bosporus, including
lines between Stambohl antl Peru, beneath the Golden Horn, antl connecting four of the Princess islands in ihe
r.eu of Marmora with the mainland.
Two of th emany difficulties confronting the telephone pioneers in
Constantinople are ns follows:
Cosmopolitan speech of subscribers. French. Arabic or Turkish,
Greek, Armenian, English and German
art* all spoken in Constantinople.
This difficulty has been solved by
sending a bevy of girl linguists from
Constantinople to London, where they
have been taught fhe telephone business.

The table of figures relating to the
receipt and shipment of tne  various
grades tell the whole story ot the results of the mixing privilege,     The
! same   co* dition   is   found   when   the
I figures on No. 2 Northern are piesont-
I ed, even ihc.gh the grain in ibis grade
is no*, so large.     During tiie two year
period  tbe  Minneapolis  elevators  received 20,414,684 bushels t.. No. 3. On
Angus' 31, 11112, they had shipped out
22,242,410   bushel.',   and   still   had   on

When the tables on No. 3.   No.    4.

j the grain in No.  1 aud No.  2 came
from.     In the   last   four   instances
i there was a loss in    the   elevators.
i There were 9,777 0,11  bushel- of Nn.
3 received during the two years. The
j shipments amounted to 7,604,232 und
I on August 31, 1912 tiie elevators hail

In   No.   4   grade   the  elevators   received 2.812,053 bushi      and  shipped

. grade was 2,188,220 bushels.
I    The "rejected ' wheat tables show-
! ed the same condition,     In this case
i there were 1,175,513 bushels received
and 021,773 buthels shipped out, making a loss of 552,7-10 bushels.
!     But i; was in Uie "no grade" class
I where llie largest loss appeared. Here
! 4,095,6115 bushels  were received.    At
the end of the Iwo year period 1,000,946

! 33S bushels and leaving 3,415,227 bushels entirely unaccjtin!  .! for.
I    Cases of Individually owned   eleva*
; tors were also cited to the senate committee.      One of these hail received
I 215,142 bushels of No. 4 wheat and at
\ tlie end of the two year period bud not
shipped out one bu-'.icl of this grade
'and did no! havo a 1 bushel 0.1 hand.
! lu other words, every bushel of this
grade, ihe grade for which thc farm-
I er was paid, was mixed and ctiine out
I in the No.    1 and   No.    2   Nc'thern
! grades, the grade lor which the sle*
■ valor owner sold it.
I The elev: tor . en who have testl-
I Tied before 11k senate committee and
the house corami'.tee huve argued that
the grain which ihey make by being
allowed to : llx is largely offset in the
cost of the mixing process. This
fact Is vigorously disputed by James
A. Manahai., counsel for tile house
committee, recently elected congress-
mah-ai-hi'.'ge for the stale of Mlnne-
so'.a. Mr. Manahan's contention is
thai Ihe fanner Is ihe loser by many
millions every year under tbe present
1    "When the elevator companies buy
Iho wheat, the; give Ihe fanners Ihe
, prices prevailing lhat day for No. 2,
13 "rejected"   ,r 'no Bruno' »a.u  .'■!,
Maiiuhan nt one of the sessions. "On
that same day,   these sn    '   elevator
: companies sell a future on No. 1 and
12 for practically thai  saint  umount.
■Their experience lias lauglu them that
they can mix the lower glades so as
1 to 1111 the future order wilh No. 1 antl
1 2.      On that very day they make a
i proOt ranging from the price they paid
I for the lower grades and Ihe price for
which they sell Ihe future on No.  1
and No. 2.     In my opinion this nets
■ them a prollt amounting to hundreds
I cf thousands of dollars.      True it .«
j that there is some expense in tlie mix-
ins process but even so 1 believe that
I the c-levttor man is making au enor-
i moils proii., u prollt wu) out of pro-
i portion."
F. W. Eva, chief of the grain Inspection departmeni, when aBked regarding
the relation of Ihe system of mixing
with the sample market, said: "A sample market would be of no value without the privilege of mixing. The two
go hand in hand. ! believe that Ihe
elevator men. having the privilege ot
mixing, ca pay a premium for the
upper level 01 the grade."
ln another statement made before
the committee Mr. Manahan said there
was no doubt that the elevator companies are getliii.. much of the profit
that Bhotild be going lo the farmer.

What Is happening lu tue word "Infinite?" It used to have si-eat and rare
associations and serve great needs.
Now I meet lt everywhere aud wltb
every possible application. Oue bonnet is Infinitely more beautiful tban
another, oue brand of wine infinitely
preferable to the nest. He bas au infinite desire to see her; she would Infinitely prefer a hobble skirt to one with
gores. One novel Is Infinitely superior
lo its predecessor; a character in it iu*
finitely prefers game to domestic fowl.
There is no nssociiitiou too trivial for
it, uo use too petty. Our books nud
our newspapers alike bristle with misused "Infinites." The word, like Laurence Sterne nnd Lord Byron, has become a social literary success, and no
worse fate enn befull a great author or

fashion papers and by society journals,
and this season's styles are usually iu-

j    The secret of good ice Is to go slowly.

to Rudolph Buuman, perhaps the best
Iceman in the Alps. He tilled two

froze hard In a night Tbe second was
allowed to fill gradually, drop by drop,
throughout a fortnight The two blocks
of Ice were then put ln the sunshine,
and, whereas the Ice that hnd been

scooped out with a knife. Tbey are
then filled with finely powdered ice
and sprinkled with boiling water The
result is an absolutely eveu surface of

Wild Timet  In  Melbourne When ths

Recessional MSS. Sold For $120.
A sheet oi notepaper covered with
neatly-written ver.se. was sold for $120
at Sothebv's recently. The writer was
Rldyard Kipling, and the poem was
the famous "Keeesslonal"—
"Ood of our fathers known of old-
I.ord of our far-flung battle-line."
An interesting reference to the poem
is made in a letter in whic.i Mr. Kipling says:
"Glad you like the 'Recessional.'

"Here is one of my very best

"I guess we can arrange that," replied Aklns.   "What is his name?"

An Ancient Rectory.
London, it is stated, is to lose an*
other interesting relic of old days—
the rectory-house situated at the back
of St. Michael's. Cornhill, a church
that itself stands upon a site worth
a large fortune. The old rectory-
house, it is believed, was erected soon
after tlie Greal, Fire, and until about
half a century ago it served its
original purpose. Then it was let out
in suites of offices. The great charm
of the building is its quietude. From
the hum of the traffic in Cornhill one
passes under an archway into a little
oasis where all is serenely silent.
Financiers and solicitors favor this
quiet retreat. From their windows
they overlook all that is left of St.
Michael's Churchyard, a pleasant
green spot, with but one tombstone
left in unspeakable loneliness. It is
understood that modern buildings
will supersede the old rectory-house,
and that the solitary tombstone will
remain to indicate to City men that
once people not ouly lived but died
under the shadow of handsome _t.
Chasing Crown Jewels.
The mystery of llie crown jewel,
which disappeared frnm Dublin Cuttle a lew years ugo, has never been
cleared up. Thers are many peopl"
who have decided views on the subject, an! prominent among them is
Mr. Laurence GinneJl, the Nationalist member for Westmeath.
Mr. Ginnell maintains that he possesses  sufficient  information   to dissolve the mystery once and for all.
On several occasions he made valiant
[attempts to induce the House of Commons to hear his views on the subject.    Solemnly he arises, and  members guess what is coming.    Mr. Ginnell informs the House that he is in
a position to make shocking revelations, and just as lie is getting into
his stride it is discovered that most
nf the   members   have   disappeared,
and thp House is counted out.    'Ti*
very    strange,    and    curinus-mind-d
i people outside the House \v*luld like
i tu see Mr. Ginnell given a tree hand
to probe the mystery.   Thc member
for    Westmeath    declares    that    the
I jewels could tie recovered nt any time.
nnd a great scandal is being hushed
I up to save  persons in  high  places.
' In  fact, Mr.  Ginnell recently called
I on the Irish Secretary "to lay Ihem
I nn the table o' the House."    A roar
\ went up at the possible prospect of

, scrambling for the precious jewels.
In private life there is no suggestion of the sleuth-hound about Mr
Ginnpll.    He  wears a beard,  and  a
well-fitting frock coat.   Though he is
self-educated, he is a member of l*oth
the Irish and Knglish Bar. and helped to found the Irish Literary Society

Singing For a Peerage.
Lord Castlemaine recently underwent the unpleasant experience of see*
ing his residence, Moydru i Castle,
near Athlone, partly burnt to the
gro-ini. He is the lifth baron, and
one of Ireland's representative peers.
Thu story of how tlie . mily enter*
ed the peerage is not without humor.
William Handcock, who was the first
Lord Castleniaine, represented Athlone in the Irish Parliament. There is
this entry after his name to be found
in Harrington's historic list: "An extraordinary instance; he made and
sang songs against the Union in 1799
at a public dinner of the Opposition;
and made anJ sang songs lor it in
1800; he got a peerage." Evidently
this accommodating politician did uot
mind on which side of the fence be
fell so long as it was the comfortable
Beresford  vs.  Churchill.
The  long-threatened  and   much-ad-
vertised   suit   between   Lord   Charles
I Beresford   and  the   terrible   Winston j
Churchill   has  resulted   in  a   unani-;
; mous verdict foi tlie defendant.   The j
I two litigants are fond of the limelight. I
; and neither of them has had much of i
: it of late, so that they were feeling >
[ like   the   Irishman  who   complained J
: that he was "blue-mouldy for want ol
a beating."   The "oright and breexy" I
' Charlie never lookod so limp as when j
\ the First Lord had finished with him. '
I for    Winnie    had  —  metaphorically ;
■ speaking — taken Charlie across his ,
! knee and spanked him unmercifully, j
! "Lulu"  Harcourt once said  of  Lord
[ Charles that he was for ever talking |
politics on the quart.'1 deck and navigation in the House u- Commons, und \
i Churchill bubbled ever with epigrams i
i of a not less dead'y type.    Perhaps j
i his heaviest broadside was contained |
! in the sentence: "The noble lord nev-
! er knows what he ta going to say when
\ he is up, and he n -v.r knows what he
has said when he sits down."
Infanta Eufalia of Spain Writes a

Tbe Infanta Kulnlin. aunt of Kins

"Women ought to ne beautiful." saya

Their beauty, said Buskin, can never
become too greut for the good of humanity nor sprend too far Its light.
Ugliness in a woman is a painful thing
that exercises a most depressing influence on those about her. On the other
hand, a beautiful face creates cheerfulness and stimulates human effort.
The woman upon whom the tired
eyes of ber husband after bis day's
work do not rest with pleasure is falling in her proper role, which Is to be a
center of harmony, a mirror of beauty.
Tbe world pardons many faults to a
beautiful woman because Rhe adorns,

A Veteran Home Ruler.
1     Several veterans voted on the Home

of Commons attracted much interest.
: Mr. Cameron, who sits for the Hough-

a Liberal, is eighty-eight years of age,
and the second oldest member in the
House of Commons.   Though he has
been in very indifferent health of late
! he insisted in taking part in thc his*

; tained a remarkable record.   He enter*

Thesb prayers for a general election on the part ol the

LAOftiKE is quoted as saying al. tlie Toronto meeting
"Defence like charity should begin at home," Thai is a
splendid yjious affirmation of the true Laurier school, When
Laurier had the opportunity of showing what his ideas were
regarding naval' defence, he bought the Niobe and Rainbow

Tha Tariff Talking Parent Had

wituessed some amusing Incidents In connection wltb mar-
I riage ceremonies, but thut or these
| none was quite so upsetting to tbe dlg-
i nity ot all concerned as tbat whlcb occurred in a wedding of bis own making.
When tbe ceremony bad been completed and tbe usual congratulations
had been offered tbe pastor turned to
the assemblage and said:
"We have all known these young
people. We Imve seen tbem grow up
from children, und now tbat tbey have
entered tbe holy state of matrimony

neighbors may have some special wurd

For a moment there was no response
to this suggestion. Then from his position emerged the father nf Uie bride,
wbo delivered himself as follows:
"I ain't certain tbat I can add anything Important to what has been snid"
Then, after a solemn and uncomfortable glance about him which betrayed
bis embarrassment, his eye fortunately fell upon a nelgbbor, a political opponent, who would never give heeo> to
tbe old mnu's views on certuln matters
relating to tariff reform. The father's
face brightened, aud ln an Inspired
way he exclaimed:
"But this seems a good chance f.nd
one which ought not be neglected, now
that Blank is here, and I should like to

When Maestro Pratella appeared to
conduct a Futurist overture, the orchestra was bombarded with rotten
apples, potatoes and oranges and several of the Instruments were smashed.
Undismayed by this hostile reception,
Marinetti himself appeared on the
stage to recite a Futurist poem, but
he was shouted down.
The excitement rose to such a pitch
„ it Boon hand-to-hand fighting broke
out between Futurists and demonstrators in all parts of the theatre. Several members of Rome's aristocracy
were Involved ln the melees. The
theatre was cleared and the fighting
was continued In the streets. Ultimately the leaders o.' the Futurists,
with their clothing torn and faces
bruised, sought refuge In a cafe.

Progeny of Horses Turned Loom on
the Trail in Early Daya
More than free inousan wild
hoi ses, in herds of from 30 to 100, are
roaming over ine h.lls und valleys in
the interior of British Columbia, according to a report brought to tdmon-
ton by James brat ey, who with oils*
tav itielniaiid, a veteran prospector
and miner known throughout tue bonanza gold camps, lias just returned
from an extended exploration tour of
tne coast province.
Indians und white prospectors and
pack train frtightets value these untamed animals more than high bred
horses, said .ur. Bradley. 'ihey are
the progeny tf horses turned loose on
the trial by discouraged or dying men
during the famous gold rusa in the
Cariboo country. Tnousands of the
veriest tenderfeet stampeded to the
new fields in the early 'bus. Most of
tneni were Incompetent, and, In fact,
utterly helpless in that wilt", country,
and tue horses, either broke away or
were abandoned when the fortune-
hunters gave up on tlie long trail.
Ihe horses made their feeding
grounds in the vicinity of barkerville
for several years afterward and their
offspring wandere^ northward as the
bauds increasjd. They make trails
on the mountains aud timbered country much after the fashion of buffalo ln the early daya and deer at present.
The Indians and freighters, working
in tlie timbered districts, catch them
witli snares, such a. are used for lynx.
In most cases the animals are easily
broken and they are better for the
rough country than high grade horses
on account of their stamina and sure*
ness of foot on the mountain trails.
We lost horses frtm our train from
time to time and l'ep.K.ed them with;
wild animals.
Ml*. Bradley rep. rted that he and
his partner covered more than 2,000
miles in the interior in search of gold.
Tliey prospected around Fort MoMur*
ray and slaked several oil and mineral claims. They found galena and
copper near the headwaters of the
Big Sm.k.. river. He says that important mines will be developed there
during the next few years. Their J
search for gold was not successful.
We had no particular hardshi-s on ■
our trip, said Mr. Bradley. There!
was nothli.g out of tlie usual which j
men travelling in wdld country are
forced to endure, but »ie never saw a
white man and very few Indians, after
we left Tete Juan Cache, west of
Edmonton, last June'. From there
we went along the Little Smoky river,
making temporary camps at intervals.
We returned with five pack horses.
