FIRST CHARGE
TO THE SYNOD
Lord Biihop of Columbia Meet*
Clergy in Annual Session and
Discusses Needs of District.
At the opening of the annual
session of the diocesan synod of
British Columbia on Tuesday the
Right Rev. Bishop Roper delivered his first charge in which he
said referring to Comox district:
One important district has not
yet been mentioned, Comox, with
its bay and its mountains, its
broad river valley and forests, is
very beautiful and very full of
promise. It is rapidly filling up
and bids fair before long to become one of the most populous
districts of Vancouver Island.
For more than 40 years, the
Rev, J. X. Willemar has worked
here faithfully and loyally alone.
The time has now come when he
must have the rest that he has so
well earned, and the work which
he has carried on must be taken
up its soon as possible by younger
men. The special circumstances
of this district have seemed to
call for special treatment.
First of all, we have provided
for Mr. Willemar a very _irqdest
provision upon his resignation.
Mr. Willomar, when his resignation takes effect, will have the
title of rector emeritus. This
also is 9 new departure. The ex
act import will be defined when
the- time comes. Generally speaking, it will be an honorary title,
and will carry with it a right to
sit in the chancel of the church
at Sandwick and the opportunity
of doing such work as he is able
to undertake; but the jurisdiction
of the parish, the care of services
and pastoral visitation, and the
responsibility attaching therein
will pass to his successor.
Looking to the future. In this
district almost every variety of
work is to be found, farm lands
and ranches, logging, mining and
railroad construction camps, ham
lets and villages, towns and
islands. From the centre at
Sandwick three clergy, with the
help of lay readers, could supply
the needs of the whole district,
with Cumberland, Union Bay,
Hornby and Denman Islands included. Under some experienced
leader and head, younger clergy
might be trained there.
When these plans come into
effect, Mr. and Mrs. Willemar
will move from the mission house
and the garden and glebe that
have been their homestead for so
many years. They possess a plot
of five acres not far away, but
the ground has to be cleared and
a new house built, and some garden land made ready.
CRIME AND DISEASE DUE
TO LIQUOR TRAFFIC
Rev. Dr. Spencer told the people of Vancouver last week that
eighty per cent of poverty, ninety
per cent of crime, and sixty per
cent of disease is caused in this
country, and others, by the liquor
traffic. In the doctor's lecture on
the subject of "Get on the Water
Wagon," held in the Savoy Theatre, he said: "It costs the people of this country $5,000,000
yearly for the upkeep of their
jails and prisons, which would be
empty were it not for the sale of
liquor. In one year alone there
is more than $77,000,000 spent in
this country, money which, if
handled in other ways, would
bring peace and happiness as well
as health to thousands of families
who are now suffering from the
lack of support, which is taken
from them by the bar room.
The doctor said that in the province of British Columbia there
are 800 bars, and in the city of
Vancouver there are 80 bar rooms.
In the province each year there
are 300 women made widows,
and more than 1,000 die as the
result of the liquor traffic."
STRONG PLEA FOR
DOMINION NAVY
Sir Richard McBride Makes ■
Stirring Speech on the Duty
of the Dominion.
V. J. Nordgren, of Victoria,
commenced his duties as clerk in
the Company's office yesterday.
As we go to press word comes
that a son of John McKenzie is
reported to have been found dead
on the banks of the Courtenay
River. It appears that the young
est son, Charles, 12 years of age,
went out hunting alone, and as he
did not return within a reasonable time, search was made by
his father, who found him as
above described.
The Beauty of Forgiving.
Two good men on one occasion
had a warm dispute, and, remem
bering the exhortations of the
apostle, "Let not the sun go
down on your wrath." Just before sunset one of them went out
to the other and, knocking at the
door, his offended friend came
and opened it, and seeing who it
was, started back in astonishment
and surprise; the other at the
same time cried out, "The sun is
almost down." This unexpected
salutation softened the-heart of
his friend into affection, and he
returned for answer. "Come in,
brother, come in." What a happy
method of conciliating matters I
and of redressing grievances!    j
Empty Barrels Make Most Din.
There is much in a look; it often
expresses volumes. There was
much in Whitfield's look, aud
those who beheld it seldom forgot
it. On a certain occasion, while
Whitfield was preaching there
was a man of the baser sort, a
turbulent follow, who was very
noisy and full of threatenings of
what he was going to do to the
preacher. Whitfield, pausing for
a moment, and extending his
right hand towards the fellow,
gave him a look that almost annihilated him. Not being able to
endure that reproving, withering
look, he rode off, glad to get away
as quickly as possible. Whitfield
remarked as he was leaving,
"There he goes! Empty barrels
make the most din."
Quite Excusable, When -
"Sir," called a lady passenger
in a tramcar; as she signalled the
conductor to stop, "didn't I tell
you I wanted to get off at Dunsmuir Ave?'' "Y—es'm, I remember that you did," stammer
ed the man. "And you have ear
ried me three streets beyond. Is
this the way you attend to your
business?" "I—beg--" began
the man. "I shall certainly send
a complaint to the office," she
observed as she made ready to
step out. "Madam, let me explain. Everyone in the car was
admiring your beautiful hat and
wrap, and I was so charmed myself that I really forgot my duty.
If you would overlook " "Was
that the reason? Ah, I see; Conductor, your duties are very exacting and onerous, and I shall
not add to the situation by any
complaints."
Coming to Adjust Difficulty.
The United Mine Workers Journal of Indianapolis, Ind:, in their
issue of Oct. 24th, says:-International Board Member Frank
Farrington, of Springfield, 111.,
has left for Vancouver Island
where he will represent President Whyte in conference there,
and attempt to adjust the strike
now in progress.—With the number of men returning to work it
seems to be settled now.
The Ladysmith Chronicle in
the issne of Saturday, Oct. 26th,
publishes an official report signed
by D. McKenzie, secretary, who
says:—The reports which have
appeared daily in the Nanaimo
papers, in regard to output of
the mines in Cumberland, are
entirely false. In another column
of this issue we print the output
of the local mines, and we would
ask Mr. McKenzie to contradict
it. if he can.
Revelstoke, Oct. 25.-"I say it
advisedly, but I say it nevertheless. We are living in what I
would term a fool's paradise."
This was Sir Richard McBride's
characterization of the situation
in Canada at the present time
with respect to the naval question.
It was uttered at the great Conservative banquet here last night.
Sir Richard was speaking to the
500 Conservative convention delegates and citizens of Revelstoke,
who sat down in the Railway Y.
M. C. A. gymnasium here to the
banquet tendered to them by the
ladies of the city, who thronged
the galleries during the evening
to hear an important declaration
from the leader of the Provincial
Government. \
What Premier McBride said
about the duty of the Dominion
and particular British Columbia
in respect to the protection of
the empire so aroused his hearers that they stood as one man
and sang at the top of their
voices "The Maple leaf forever,"
and "Rule Britannia." The scene
in the brilliantly lighted and
beautifully decorated hall with
the hundreds of enthusiastic political representatives at the banquet tables below and the enthused women in the gallery above
was a memorable one.
"Does it ever occur to you that
the treasure which is at stake in
the vast commercial operations
in this province it is a sacred
trust with us?" asked the Pre.
mier as he replied to the toast to
British Columbia proposed by
Mayor Robinson of Kamloops.
Do you think of how little
protection you are giving these
industrial projects, not even the
protection which the ordinary
policeman gives to his round?
The resources of this province
are illimitable and we have told
the world so. It may be that
there are those who are envious
and might like to seize some of
this natural wealth. Across the
broad Pacific there are wonderful peoples and perhaps in another
decade the forces of China and
Japan may be marshalled together in a naval and military armament to threaten our possessions
in this part of the globe. Did we
permit our wealth to go unprotected in this way we should not
deserve to enjoy it. If I can not
appeal on national grounds, I can
surely speak to you on a commer-
tcial basis. Let us insure our
property. Let us shortly be able
to lay claim to a regular Canadian
army and Canadian navy, second
to none in the world.
"Permit me to ask the federal
members to take up this question
when they get back to Ottawa.
On every hand I hear complaint
that every dollar now given to
the volunteers is grudged them.
In Victoria I know that there is
said to be scarcely enough of a
regular force decently to take
care of the buildings, where
there ought to be a fair representation of the permanent military
of Canada.
"This is a serious business. If
there is not enongh money in the
Dominion estimates to take care
of this situation and give us a
decent defence force, I would
ask that the estimates for the
purpose be doubled or trebled.
"Canada cannot do too much
2,329 TONS OF COAL
HOISTED IN FOUR DAYS
The output of the local mines
continue to increase. Every day
sees new men and old hands re-
turning to work. Quite a number
have declared their intention of
returning to work on Monday.
The Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd. resumed operations at
No. 6 Shaft on Thursday, Oct. 31,
with a full staff of engineers and
fire bosses and officials. That
makes the third mine in operation
now owned by the company.
The  following figures shows
the output at the local mines:
Monday, October 28,--..521 tons
Tuesday,      "    29,.-..535   '
Wednesday, "    30,....691   '
Thursday,    "    31,....582   '

The Cumberland Conservative
Association held one of their
regular meetings in the Conservative Rooms last evening.
Samuel Piercy, of Courtenay,
had a very valuable colt shot this
week by some of those individuals
who goes hunting with pit lamps.
The deputation appointed by
the Board of Trade to interview
Sir Richard McBride on railway
extension to Cumberland, left by
auto Wednesday afternoon. The
party included T. E. Bate, W. E.
Lawrence, J. N. McLeod and
Thos. E. Banks. They are expected to return to-day.
The Cumberland City Band
became conspicuous last Wednesday evening by their absence.
They did not even turn out to
welcome the distinguished U. M.
W. of A. officials that arrived by
Wednesday's train, who, according to statements, were expected
to bring the thousands for the
support of the needy miners at
Cumberland. We suppose the

like to see the money first then

to assist in the naval programme
of the Empire to please British
Columbia. If to-morrow we were
thrown into jeopardy, where
would we turn to be consoled?
To the Motherland. We are comfortable here now. We know
that if disaster overtakes us we
can find refuge with England.
We claim to be stalwart Canadians
and to make up a powerful part
of the British nation. If consistent, let us not allow an hour to
go by until we make ample provision to help out on the question
of assembling an efficient imperial
navy. I hope that Premier Borden will come out with a strong
vaval policy and that Canada will
respond to a man."
Premier MeBride referred at
some length to the progress which
had been made in British Columbia during the past ten years and
declared that although he had
approached the late Liberal Government with respect to the desires of this province in a national
spirit, he had not been met in
that way and it was not until Mr
Bordon entered into power that
anything satisfactory was arrive*
at with regard to the questions
at issue between British Columbia
and the Dominion. The refusal
of the Laurier Government to
listen to British Columbia led to
its overthrow here, he continued.
He stated that shortly there
would be something definite to
announce about "better terms,"
as an enquiry was to be held by
a commission into the demand of
the government here for a larger
share from the Dominion treasury.
In a complimentary reference
to the ladies, Sir Richard ventured the opinion that ninety per
cent of those in British Columbia
favored the Conservative Government and further they had been
able to make their influence felt
without such unhappy methods
as had been followed in the old
country.
Robert Foster, District Prcsi
dent of the U.M.W. of A„ stated
to a Free Press representative,
which that paper published, that
the situation at Cumberland has
had a'peculiar result of reducing
the officials of the Company
Many of them are now employed
in minor positions and the cashier,
he states, is acting as weighboss
and there is only one fire boss.
For his information we would
point out that it seems the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.
have all the fire bosses and weigh
bosses they want to run their
mines, and the cashier occupies
his own position. But if it
became a necessity it is an easy
matter for George W. Clinton to
weigh coal or push cars.
He further states to a Free
Press representative that about
140 Chinese and Japs have returned to work, but they are only
able to produce five per cent of
the coal produced at those mines
when working under normal con-
dilions.
In reply to that we would state
that we know for a fact that
there are over 600 men in the
employ of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd. in and around
Cumberland. Included in that
number are coal miners, engineers, rope riders, mule drivers,
fire bosses, timbermen and others
that are necessary in and around
coal mines.
We know for a fact, and defy
Robert Foster or his friends to
dispute it, that No. 4 Mine alone
produced 502 tons of coal in eight
hours last Wednesday on the
morning shift.
Then Robert Foster goes on to
say that erroneous entirely is the
rumor that the Engineers Union
had requested its members to
resume work.
The following telegram and
letter were received by the local
engineers from their headquarters at Vancouver and will explain the situation to the Nanaimo
Free Press, Robert Foster and
his friends.

To James Whyte, jr.,

Dear Sir and Bro., The executive met today to consider Unreport of Bro. Dunlop, who was
sent over to look into the situation, and regret very much to say
that the members of the Cumberland Lodge were very much ill-
advised in participating in the
trouble between the miners and
the Company. By the members
taking it upon themselves to get
mixed up in the matter without
even consulting the executive on
a matter of such grave import
ance, the. executive is not in a
position to support the members
of the Cumberland Lodge. We
advise all those that can to return
to work, and in the place of
those who cannot we are sorry to
say wc feel obliged to sanction
the right of other members of the
association taking their places.

In addition to thus beinp divided info
classes, so as to givo small users of cement an
equal chance with those who use more, the
Contest is also divided into nine divisions, one
for each province. So you see you need only
to compete with the other farmers of your own
province, and not with those all over Canada.
Don't think that because you have never
used cement, you cannot win a prize. Many
of List year's prize winners had
never used cement before they
entered the Contest. We will send
you a free book, "What the

that will not only help you in the

CAREFUL DOCTOR
Prescribed Change of Food Instead of
Drugs
It t.f.kns considerable courage for
fl doctor to deliberately prescribe only
food for a despairing patient, instead
of resorting to thu usual list of medicines.
There are some truly scieulilic physicians among the present generation
who recognize ami treat conditions
as they are aud should be treated, regardless of the value to their pock-
els.      Here's an Instance.
"Four years ago I was taken with
severe gastritis and nothing would
stay ou my stomach, so that I was on
ibe verge of starvation.
"I heard of a doctor who had a summer cottage near nn—a specialist
from N.Y.—and as a last hope, sent
for him.
"After he had examined me carefully ho advised me to try a small
quantity of Grape-Nuts at first, then
as my stomach became stronger to
eat more.
"I kept at it and gradually got so
1 could, eat and digest three teaspoon-
fills. Then I hegan to have color
in my face, memory became clear,
where before everything seemed a
blank. My limbs got stronger and I
could walk.     So I steadily recovered.
"Now after a year on Grape-Nuts I
weigh 158 lbs. My people were surprised at the way I grew fleshy and
strong on this food." Name given

HE STANDS BY HIS STONE DOG
Though Popular Criticism Call. It a

Maat.rpi.o..
By M. QUAD. •
tCopyrlght, 111*,  by the Associated Lit.
•r.ry Pr.sa.l
FOR tbe last ten year. Mr. Bow*
ser has had a .lone (log for nn
oruument In hia front yard. lie
was bought at auction fer f-.
and he waa a work of art. An Italian
peanut man with a born tusle for sculpture bad worked on that dog for twelve
years aud theu gone into bankruptcy
■nd left hint to be sold for tlie benellt
Of hia creditors.
The auctioneer had warranted that
■tone dog to be a full blooded water
apanlel. and Mr. Bowser had accepted
Mm aa auch. Upon getting the animal
borne, however, and giving him u place
in the yard tbere was a great difference
of oplulun among paasersby as to tbe
breed. He wus set down us a bulldog,
• hound, a mastiff, a apanlel, a collie
■nd three or four other sorts. When Mr.
Bowser wa. appealed to he answered
tbat It waa a water apanlel and wus
almost Invariably called a liar.
At least once a month for years someone bad rung the doorbell at midnight
■nd rooted Mr. Bowser out to ask him
"BRA   HIOO, SKUNK,   TOBTLg,   KYEN4
OK WHAi'f"
If the dog was for aale, and there wns
■lways loud tulk and sometimes a light.
Inside of a month from the coming of
the dog Mrs. Bowser advised his re*
■oval to the alley, but Mr. Bowser
Bred up to reply:
"I'd like to aee any one try to remove
biro!"
,  "But he's malting trouble."
"Let him nuilte.   If the people don't
know a work ot art when they see one
I'm not to blame."
1 An Art Diaeuaaion,    .
, "But 1. he a work of art?"
"la he? Is he? Mrs. Bowser, have
yon seen or heard anything to lead you
to auspect that 1 am fool euough to buy
• atone dog lhat Isu't a work ot art?"
"Why-why"—
. "Why what?   Out with It."
• "Tbe pastor of our church nnd another gentleman halted at the gate to
look at the dog the other day, and the
pastor snid something about u mun-
etroslty."
"He did. eh? All right for him. I'll
never enter his church again nor contribute one darned cent for the heathen
of Africa! If I meet him I'll ask hltn
bow be came to kuow art from n slippery elm tree!" ,
Twice a year Mr. Bowser repainted
that dog. The color, were always
vbnnged with the seasons. Me wns a
white, a green, a brown, a red, a black.
a mouse and a spotted dog by (urns.
Bach change of color provoked new
discussion nnd new rows. One day the
plumber came along when the dog was
being pninled u light green, with fiery
red eurs nnd tall, nnd inked:
"la It a frog, turtle, skunk, hyena or
what?"
"Do yon know anything about art.
■Ir?" stiffly demanded Mr. Bowser.
"I think I can tell a whale when 1
oee one."
"Well, I don't. I think you are n

grandmother, nnd If 1 can beat you out
of any plumbing jobs I'm going to do

Vandalism.
On* dark night—one dark and rainy
night, when the wind howlod dismally
and lost souls walked abroad and wnil-
od at ench other—some lost soul entered the Bowser yard and sawed off
and rook away,with him the tail of
that dog. That left him a bobtail nud
when Mr. Bowser arose In the morning a crowd of fifty people were lenn-
Ing over the gnte nud discussing the
change. The concensus of opinion was
that the removal of the tall was a decided Improvement.
"It is nn improvement," said the
butcher, "because vou can't tell now
whether It's a camel or n rnbblt."
Great was Mr. Bowser's wrath, hut
the tail stenler had come and gone and
left no clew.
"Ton will, of conrsp, r#iove the
thing now?" suggested Mrs. Bowser.
"Tlie thing! Tbe thing! Madam,
yon nre tnlking of my atone dog!"
"Why, yen."
"Then speak of It ln different Inn-
•»««-•.   Remove It?   Not by the sev
enteen pipers that piped before Joshua
nr aome other fellowl  That dog atay,
right where be It!"
"But the tall?"
"He cau get along without one. I'll
ahow tbe public 1 can't be bluffed."
And he showed the public by repainting the mutilated dog tbat very day.
This time be wus a white dog with
green ears and red eyes, and even th*
watermelon men halted to gaze on bim
and then boost their price* 10 per cent
More Mutilation.
And a year or so later came another
•ail uud weepy night.   The lost soula
were abroad agniu to whoop 'er up, and
| one or tbem rang the front doorbell of
Mr. Bowser's mansion and asked hltn
If he hud uny one night corn cure In the
bouse,   lie was promptly booted dowu

i Ye*, two hind legs and a fnre were
missing when the sun came up and a
j crowd gathered.   Tbe dog hnd ouly a
' sluglp  leg to stand on. but be was
j game and making out bravely.
I    Mr. Bowser went forth and addressed
tlie crowd.    Ills language was fervid.

therefore Jumped the feme and cuffed
three hoys and licked live men aud had

C.ntemnt ef Court.
"Then it Is to go at last?" naked Mra.
Bowser, with a sigh of relief.
"Go!   Oo!   Wbo aaid It waa to go?"
was asked.
"Ifou said tbe Judge"—
"Tbe judge lie hanged!   He can ran
bis court aa be pleases, hut be can't
ran tne or my front yard!  That atone
dog stays!"
"On one leg?"
"Yes, ur on none at all. If be waa to

every museum In tbe country would be
after him. I'll keep bim for my own
museum."
And he did. No one knew the Bowser house, but thousands came to know
"that place with tbe one legged something or other In the yard." Mrs. Bowser got men to offer as high as SIS for
the retrains, but they could not be
bought She hinted to trumps and old
elo* men that one vigorous kick would
take away thnt last remaining prop,
but they always replied:
"Madam, do not ask me to sacrifice
my life. I know your husband's bloodthirsty nature!"
This sketch Is nut to be continued In
our next, but finished right now. Tbe
other evening Mr. Bowser smoked,
read. Jawed nbout the gns bill and
theu fell usleep in his chair. It wus
not another sail nnd weepy night, and
Mrs. Bowser couldn't imagine uny lost
souls uround. She wns therefore surprised when the bell softly tinkled.
She tiptoed down tbe hall and opened
the door, nud the wan wbo stood
there whispered:
Last ef th* Deg.
"I   have  cume   for  thr   high   art.
Have you got a dime about you?"
Two minutes later he had tbe silver.
"Is It tbe other leg?" was asked.
- "No, mum; it's the whole body this
time."
"Will you benr It far away?"
"Dr. Cook will take It with him tbe
neit time be goes tn tbe north pole."
The door wns softly closed, and the
feranle   conspirator   returned   to   her
sleeping busbnud.   He slept on for an
hour- und then woke up to go to bed
nnd sleep some more.    No discovery
wns tnnde until be hud euten break-
fust  nnd  started  out  for the ollice.
Then the trampled snow and the missing dog told their tule.    Mrs. Bowser
heard the whoop she wns waiting for
-the rush up the steps—tho gusping
rxclnmu tion:
"They huve done it at Inst!"        j
"Whnt?"
"Tbey have Inrjrtd off the dog!"
"Youcun't menn ll!"
And   theu   Mr.   Bowser  bicked   up
ngninst   the'   wnil   ami    looked   her
straight  In  tlie eye and  pointed  hia
linger and hoarsely whispered:
"Vour line Italian hand! Woman,

Tbe average traveler would much
rather not become friends with a
Terra del l-'uegian, flir tlio people of
that nationality know uf no better way
of expressing liking and showir;j honor than by bugging the stranger. As
these savages of the tip-end of South
America aro very nearly the dirtiest
on record ,und (is their bodies aro
covered with grease, clay and vermin,
sucli hugging is most offensive. It is
not to be avoided, though, ii any native of high rank takes a strong liking
to his visitor.
There is a Siberian tribe that makes
a practice of eating a guest whom it
admires or whose virtues it greatly
desires to emulate, in o.der, so tli«
story goes, that his virtue might abide
■-"in their midst." The tourist, however, is generally speaking, safe in
this Knssiunized country.
If he visits the Tohuktchi close to
Behring's Straits and gets into one
of thoir big tents he w'ill find a family
almost completely nude. The women
will not miud at all. If he passes
muster they will honor him aud make
him feel at home by putting strings
of gloss beads in their hair that has
been copiously covered with grease.
Then, ol course, having been shown
this courtesy, he must stay in the
smoky stitfling atmosphere and sup
on  hot broiled reindeer.
The visitor to an Abyssinian village must first sit under a tree and
let himself be observed. Then some
important individual will step forward and give bim the freedom of his
house. Tho Ashangus meet tlie traveler with dishes of red paint and the
man who does uot paint himself at
once is definitely "queered" in that
village. The Zunis of New Mexico and
Arizona offer their guests a "cocktail." It is made of mosquito beans
pounded iu an earthen jar, parched
corn and flour, and is reported to be
a very superior appetizer.
The black Uatokas of the Zambesi
roll on their backs and deal themselves'resounding slaps ou their naked skins. If tho rolling is prolonged
and the slaps and the attendant yelling very loud the guest is high in
favor. Some Xew Zeaianders squat
on the ground and weep. The Nubians
wait anxiously for the coming visitor
and are eager to entertain. A jar of
fresh wator is always ready in each
house of the tribe for the stranger
and no one else. The Kaffirs assure
each white visitor that he ranks as a
chief and make good in tue way they
entertain him.
The Crumbs and the Crust.
Eat the crust of bread in preference
Ut the crumb. This is the advice of
Tho London Lancet. This famous
London medical publication says that
analysis shows tlmt "the crumb contains on an average 4.J per cent, of
moisture, while the crumb contain'
only 20. One important dietetic
difference between crust and crumb is
thu fact that the former contains au
Increased amount of soluble, carbohydrate's owing to the action of intense heat which tlio crust receives
compared with the crumb during baking. Moreover, the crust has a mors
pronounced  breedy  flavor
dunts in the fatuous "trial of HUT
political offenders, but was released
after the trial, ln January, 1831, he
wns again arrested because of his lit-
erury activity and'condemned to penal servitude for liie. He was at first
confined in a solitary cell of the Ill-
famed fortress of 68.; Peter and Paul.
Four years later he was transferred
to tbe "stone sacks" of. the terrible
Schlusselburg fortress, where he was
kept for another 21 years.
Many times during that long period
Morosoff nearly became tlie victim of
a deadly disease, aud wns on tho
brink of madness, but his indomitable
spirit overcame his physical weakness.
His extraordinary kindness and courtesy gained him the hearts even of his
jailers, who called him "the marquis."
From tho very first years of his
confinement Morusoff had set his mind
to the solution of various scientilic
questions. During the last decade of
his imprisonment he was allowed the
use of paper and pencil, and provided
with scientific books. Then this prisoner, his lody emaciated and feeble,
but his brain still vigorous, his intellect hurtling, began day after day,
with amazing and pathetic perseverance, to think/ nut and set down on
paper liis hypotheses and reasonings,
to make endless calculations for the;
preparation of tables and schemes.
"The greater part of his life was
already behind him." writes Mme.
Vera Figner, another of tlio Schlusselburg prisoners, "and before him was
nothing but blank hopelessness and a
nameless grave in a little plot near
tho walls of the fortress, where lay
his friends, once, like himself, full
of mental energy and strength, but
cut off by consumption and scurvy.
And yet how he worked! He never
ceased to think and write, animated
by the undying hope that his ideas
would some day see the light."
At the end *of 1!W5, when the general strike had for a moment held the
Russian autocracy under its heel.
Morosoff, with the few other Schlusselburg prisoners who were still alive,
was set free. He was then 51 years,of
age.
Of these he had passed 28 years-
more than half his life—in solitary
confinement. Yet, with unbroken
spirit, this feeble man, made prematurely old, threw himself into the
world of science, to which he was srt
passionately devoted, and issued n series of scientific researches in chemistry and physics, and other works,
including the little volume of poems
for which he has been again sent to
prison.

In stout, fUll-blooded adults an attack
of uusobleed is often preceded by a
severe headache or other symptom indicating too much blood in tho hend.
in which oases the hemorrhage will
relieve the headache. The same thing
,is often true in cases of tinnitus or
noises in the head. If the hemorrhage
is severe the same symptoms—headache and tinnitus—-may follow as a
result of the anaemia.

recurring attacks of nosebleed for

What the Editor has to say.
Nothing hurts a man more than to seem small and ignoble
in bis own eyes. It is the slavish feeling that degrades thc
slaved. A base ambition makes the man that cherishes it base.
No one can debase you but yourself Slander, satire, falsehood,
injustice—these can never rob you of your manhood. Men
may lie about you, they may denounce you, they may cherish
suspicions manifold, they may make your feelings the target of
their wit and cruelty. Never be alarmed ; never swerve an
inch from the line your judgment and conscience have marked
out for you. They cannot, by all tlieir efforts, take away your
knowledge of yourself, tbe purity oft/our motives, the integrity
of your character, and tbe generosity of your nature. While
these are left you are, in point of fact, unharmed. Nothing
outside yourself can ever make you smaller than you ore
to-day. If you shell dwindle ; if leanness and inability shall
come to any faculty ; if you shall lose what makes you an
ornament to that rank and order of intelligence to which you
were born—the loss will be a self-indicted one. Self-degradation is the only degradation man can know.
"I never listen to calumnies," says Montesquieu, "because
if they are untrue I run the risk of being deceived; and if
they be true, of hating persons not worth thinking about."
Sir Walter Scott characterizes calumny as the vile habit, iuto
which baser spirits sink, of cutting honest throats by whispers.
The United Mine Workers Journal, in their issue of October 24th, publishes an article signed by John P. White, President, and others of the international executive board, who
make an appeal for financial assistance. Tht article in question
is dated Indianapolis, Ind., Ost. 19th, 1912. and is addressed
to the districts, sub-districts, and local unions of U.M.W. of A.
It says : " As a result of a depleted treasury during the
years 1911 and 1912, and the many strikes in progress at the
time this administration took charge, and desiring to minimise
as far as possible consistent with the rights of our membership
the financial burdens imposed on our organizations, we take
this method of appealing for finances to successfully prosecute
tbe strikes iu which the organization is involved. There is a
strike in West Virginia, involving several thousand men and
their families, 800 men and their dependents iu Colorado,
1000 men and families in Vancouver, to this number .mist he
added a local strike in district No. 8 and No. 11), all of which
is being financed by the international organization,
" Realizing hat the winter is approaching and large
numbers of our people have been evicted from their homes,
making it necessary to provide shelter for them, necessitating
large expenditures of funds, and fully conscious of the fact tbat
our present income with the amount on band in the treasury
is inadequate to meet all anticipated demands until the strikes
are over, it becomes necessary to provide additional income."
The reason we publish a portion of the statement given
out by tbe international executive board is to relieve the minds
of a few of the residents of Cumberland who are expecting
thousands of dollars to roll in for llieir support, and that they
may not be disappointed.

Good Lord, ejaculated Easton
darting Into the roadway he
wildly  up at  tlio house.      And  then
on u balcony BOtpe three or four stor*]
lea ap he saw a white figure stand for
u moment   motionless,  stagger,   reel I
and tall crumpled up agalluit the rail-]
Inc.
What's happened? ho thought. Some
row on. Some one in trouble. I
must try to find oat what's up, and
he ran to Ihe house.
Il was a largo building, evidently a
bloelt of Hats, hut the noise did not
aeein to have disturbed any of the
Inhabitants, for no othur window opened, nor .lid any lights appear,
Tito door is sure to ho shut at this
hour of the night, lie thought, seeing
the handle and turning it.
But to Ills surprise the latch gavt
the door came open, and
the hall.
What lack! It was the fourth floor
unless I am mistaken, he thought,
end quickly he aped up the steps.
At the fourth landing he paused.
Two doors faced him, bat both wore
closed and behind them silence reigned. It was an awkward situation,
but something had to be done, and
quickly he tried the door upon
right.
This wns locked, and he turned to
the other. And here he was more
successful. For, like the door downstairs, this too was unfastened, aud
opened to his touch.
Tho Major had just time to notice
that within all was darkness, before
he staggered back breathless, stupl-
fled, overcome. Por out upon him
with the opening of the door rushed
a huge volume of escaping gas, jtrik-
Ing him full In the face, seizing him
by tho throat with Its suffocating
fumes, deaSoning his senses; causing
(he pulses In hli temples to beat with
terrifying force.
To another than the Major the situation might have presented considerable dangers, but the explorer was
not the kind of man to he easily taken
»t a disadvantage. lie had proved
capable of grappling up to the preBsnt
with most of the emergencies he had
met In life; and he quickly tackled
this one.
On the wall near him hung a flre-
lucket. Tearing off his silk muffler,
le dipped it In the bucket and wrapped It round his mouth and nostrils.
'fhen. quickly flinging himself down
upon his stomach, he wriggled his
way into the flat.
He found himself in a narrow hall.
from which doors led off on either
eide. Even In the darkness he could
tell that these doors were shut.
Whence came the escaping gas? It
■was impossible to say. And he crept
on.
And then in front of him he caught
sight of the faint reflection of a window and lights from the street beyond. It Is from there it is coming, he thought, from that open door.
•nd rising quietly to his feet he made
a dart for tho room.
To reach It and smash the window
with his elbow was the work of a
moment, but It. was a moment almost
too long, he realised, ua he felt him-
Holt reel and gasp for breath. Then
the cool brisk breeze, rushing in'
through 'he broken glass, reached
his lungs, th.i frightful tension round
bis temples relaxed and tearlug off
the muffler, be breathed in long
draughts of tho life-giving air.
Thank heaven, he murmured. But
It was a near thing, though.
And he took a look around hlni.
Dark though the room was In which
lie found himself, there eatne
to it a certain amount of
light from tho Btreet lamp
down 1 e]o\v. anil he could dimly see
that  It was one of the bedrooms of
the flat.
Where Is that gas-tap, he wondered.
1 can hear it, but I can't see the
confounded thing, and matters won't
get ve-y much better till I turn it t
off. |
Listening keenly fo" some gal,lance
from the sound, he took a few steps J
across the room. The gas had ui?eet-1
ed him more thou he thought, how-1
ever, for his legs refused to carry him
straight. ile had hardly gone a I
couple of yards when he cannoned j
again against a bednost, reached oat
to stop himself, and fell across thej
bed, hia arms extended.
And   then,  cool-headed,  ready  man
as h° was, he sltoost  cried out, anil
,        , I (illicitly struggled  to his  feet again.
"""' "I For his hands, stretched out to save
hluiseir.  had  touched  and  rested  on

Undoubtedly the   longest-lived   mil-
I tnal on earth  Is the whale, lis span
. of existence being estimated hy CUV*
! lor at 1,000 years.     The next largest
animal   the elephant, will, under fav*
i ul'able conditions, live 4<MI years.
|    When Alexander the Groat conquer*

with the inscription   "Alexander, the
son of Jupiter, dedicated Ajax to the
pun."     The elephant was found alive
350 years later.
The average age of cats is fifteen
years; of squirrels, seven or eight,
years; of rabbits, seven; a bear rarely exceeds twenty years; a wolf twenty; a fox, fourteen to sixteen. Lions
nls | are comparatively long-lived, instances
having been recorded where they
reached  the age of seventy years.
Pigs have been known to live to
the age of twenty years and horses to
sixty but the average age of the
liorse Is twenty-five to thirty. Camels
sometimes live to the age of a hundred, and stags are very long-lived,
one having heen taken by Charles VI.

about its neck a collar on which was
engraved, "Caesar hoc in Ih I donavlt.
Whether or not this stag had actually lived since the days of one of the
Caesars It is Impossible to Bay, but
the evidence seems good.
' Eagles occasionally and ravens frequently reach the age of a hundred
years, and swans have been known to
live XOO years. A tortoise has been
known to live 107 years.
Efforts have been made to connect
the rapidity of the pulse-beat with
longevity, but no logical conclusion
can be reached as will be seen from
the fact that the pulse of a Hon beats
forty times a minute; that of a tiger
ninety-six times a minute; of a horse,
forty times; of a wolf, forty-five
limes; of a fox, forty-three times; of
a bear, thirty-three times; and of an
eagle, 100 times. It has heen Impossible to count the beats of an elephant's pulse, but that of a butterfly
bents sixty times to the minute.

Proud of It
The old-age pension officer had a
magnificent sense of hia own importance, aad questioned the old lady
with a seal that would have done credit to the reporter in search of a
"scoop."
Ami now, he proceeded, drawing
himself up to his full height of nearly
five feet tell me this. Have you
ever heen in receipt of parish relief?
Never, answered the applicant.
M'yes. Have you at any time been
in the hands of the police?
Tlie lady hung her head, and the
oflicer smiled as much as to say, Got
yer.
Come, on come on; tell me the
truth, the whole truth, und nothing
but the [ruth, he commanded, fixing
the woman with his steely eye.
Well, replied the applicant, I don't
see that either you or the Government
hnve any business to know, but I
don't deny It. Girls will he girls,
you know. Hut still, proudly—he

Why Should I Use
Cuticura Soap?
"There is nothing the matter
with my skin, and I thought
Cuticura Soap was only for skin
troubles:' True, it is for skin
troubles, but its great mission is
to prevent skin troubles. For
more than a generation its delicate emollient and prophylactic
properties have rendered it the
standard for this purpose, while
its extreme purity and refreshing
fragrance give to it all the advantages of tlie best of toilet soaps.
It is also invaluable in keeping
the hands soft and white, thc hair
live and glossy, and the scalp
free from dandruff and irritation.
While its first cost is a few cents
more than that of ordinary toilet
soaps, it is prepared with such care
and of such materials, that it wears
to a wafer, often outlasting several
cakes of oilier soap, and making
its use, in practice, most economical. Cuticura Soap is sold by
druggists and dealers everywhere,
but thc truth of these claims may
be demonstrated without cost by
sending to "Cuticura," Dept. 7M,
Boston, U. S. A., for a liberal sample cake, together with a thirty-two
page book on the skin and hair.
Reflections of a Bachelor
A girl wants to love a fine man, so
she loves any kind that comes along.
The trouble with Eve was there
was nobody's wash to count on the
line next door.
If you tell a woman you have good
news for her, she can listen to It
cheerfully oven it it isn't.
When a woman tries to improve a
man's temper, she's got a chance to
make him break out worse than ever.
What makes It so easy for a girl
tp please a man before tliey are married is it Is going to be so hard for
her to after they are.
Reform makes more noise and docs
less business than about, anything else
In this world.
If you think you are right, go
ahead; but don't, be disappointed if
the crowd doesn't, follow you.
Some girls must dread the idea of
becoming old maids. Otherwise
they wouldn't marry the kind of men
they do.

An Elephant's Bath
Tho elephant's bath takes a week
to carry out ln every detail.     It requires the services of three men and
costs about $50.
This treatment Is necessary for a
circus elephant and If the animal Is
a valuable one the proprietor of the
circus does not consider the money
wasted. The first process consists
in going over the immense body with
the best soap procurable; 1501b of
soap is used, and the elephant's ears
ure especially carefully attended to.
When the soaping nnd drying are
completed the elephant Is well Baud-
papertd, and after that rubbed all
over with tlie purest Indian oil until
the mousogrey skin is 'supple and
glistening. The last finishing touch
ia tht most expensive part of the
whole bath, as over ?30 has to be
spent on the oil alone.

Human Hair-Nets
The annual sale of nets of human
hair, according to the report of the
American Consul at Kohl, in estimated  at l:\C00 000.
Hair-nets are made almost wholly
In the houses of Alsatian and Austrian peasants; the peculiar skill required to net hair has become in part
hereditary.
The children begin first to tie the
hairs together, end to end, to make
one long hair. Then with only n
round piece of wood about 6In. long
and 1-2 Inch in diameter and a needle
the older, girls and women—and sometimes the men—weave the nets.
Bach mesh is knotted in much the
same way that fish-nrts or hammocks
are made. Only tying a single hair
is a more delicate and difficult task
than tying a string.
To make a dozen nets is a day's
work of ten or twelve hours.
