falsehood was made out of whole cloth, as
the fort had not fired a shot during the half
hour immediately proceeding the explosion.

Lafe Pence is After Tom Reed.
Washington, D. C. Feb. 26.���Congress
man Lafe Penoe's speech attracted considerable attention in the House this afternoon.
He sharply criticized Mr. Reed for hia
filibustering tactics, and vigorously denounced those Republicans uud Democrats
who sneaked out at roll call. He called
them ' 'sneakers and dodgers." A dodg r,
he said was a cross between a Democrat and
Republican cuckoo. He placed those four
Republicans who refused to follow Reed's
filibustering on the roll of honor. This included Bowers of California. Mr. Pence
declared that the next President would be
elected in the House of Representativea,
where the people's party would hold the
balance of power. Then Thomas Reed
would repent of hia acta.

Chicago, Feb. 2(i.��� No time was lost by
the Southern Pacific Railroad in meeting
cuts in the California passenger rates by the
Santa Fe Railroad on Saturday. It advised
all its connections to-day that thev might
meet rates through Ogden and El Paso.
This clearly j* ins issues and shows a disposition on the part of both roads to fight
the thing to the bitter end. While no reductions to intermediate points are yet
announced, all the roads agree that they,
too, will be sacrificed, and the rates from
Missouri River to Denver, Colorado Springs,
Pueblo, Ogden, and all other common intermediate points will bear their full share of
reductions.

Bayard Suffers from Nostalgia.
Nsw York, Feb. 26.���The Mail and Express prints a circumstantial cable from
London asserting that Miniater Bayard ia
anxious to return home. It ia aaid the
various functiona in which he ia called upon
to participate ou account of hiB official position are very objectionable to him, as he
haa never been very fond of aociety. It is
recalled that he manifested a similar aversion to social life when in Washington. It
is aaid also that the climate of London does
not agree with him. The cablegram aaaerta
that Bayard has already Bent a communication to Cleveland, which haa been answered,
but the exaot tenor of those letters is not
known. The Express publishes in connection with thia, a Washington apecial in
which Senator Gray of Delaware pronounoes
the report untrue, but gives nn ground for
the denial.

the past two days been flying southward. It
is their great annual migration to a warm
climate aud usually thia movement takea
place in the fall. Their usual course is up
the gorge following the couisj of the river
until near Touawada when they fly over the
swamp landa and south into the Pennsylvania valleys and woods. Yesterday
afternoon thousands of the crows alighted on the ice bridge and set up a wild
crowing. The Bound waa heard against
the rocky walls of the gorge and the
hundreds of vieitors in the parks on both

attracted to the place. The weather was
Brand yeaterday at the Falls and all the
railroads ran excursion trains. A party of
railroad officials from Cincinnati were on
the ice bridge to-day and became separated
in a crowd. General Agent Reeves, of the
"Big Four," endeavored to reach hie party
by taking a circuitous route around the
crowd ana going to the lower end of tho
bridge. While at the extreme end a portion
of ice on which he was standing broke away
from the main bridge and with Mr. Reeves
on il started down the stream. S. F. B.
Morse, the eastern agent of the same road
at Buffalo, discovered Mr. Reeves' danger
and rushed to the point nearest him and
was able to pull him across the faat widening gap in time to aave him. The ice on
which Mr. Reeves had stood soon broke up
in the powerful current and diaappeared.
Not a Bomb This Time.
Oakland, Cal., Feb. 26.���At 10 o'clock
thiB morning a terrible report with accompaniment of ahaking buildings and smashing
glass startled every one along Broadway
into the belief that another powder ex-
plosion had occurred. An investigation
showed that a gaa meter under the show
window of the Jonaa Clothing Store had
leaked, and becoming ignited in an unknown
manner, exploded, making a wreck of glass
and injuring two persons on the street seriously. Plate glass from the windows was
blown into the street. Robert Smith standing looking in was thrown across the walk
into the gutter. David Burgees passing,,
had his beard and hair burned off.
Last Night's City Council.
Mayor Quennell presiding, Aldermen
Nightingale, Cocking, Wilkes, Morrison,
Craig, Churchill, Wilson. Pleace and Dobeson present.
The City Council had a ahort meeting last
evening; no business of importance was
transacted.
The Victoria road sidewalk engrossed most
of the attention of the aldermen, and Mr.
Woodman addressed the Council, urging
the placing of the sidewalk on the upper
side ot the street, stating that 70 houses
would be benefitted if placed there, and
only 16 if on the lower side. He also alluded to the fact that seven streets branched
off on the upper Bide, the residents on which
would all be benefitted and owing to the
proximity of Nicol street there would be
little benefit to the lower aide streets, as
they led into Nicol street, which already
had a Bidewalk.
On the motion of Aid, Nightingale seconded by Aid. Dobeson, the petition was laid
on the table.
The communication from the Electric
Light, Company on the motion of Aid.
Nightingale, seconded by Aid. Cocking, waa
refer-fd to the Light Committee.

made good as far as Hecate street.   Carried.
It waB moved by Aid. Cooking that
tenders be called for laying sidewalk on
Victori * road.
The Mayor ruled it out of order aa a
notice of the motion should have been given
at the previous meeting.
Aid. Nightingale moved that th�� bell be
placed on the new fire hall, but withdiew
his motion, and Aid. Wilson moved that the
matter he left in the hands of the Fire
Wardens     Carried.
Aid. C-a*g gave notice nf motion to repair
Kennedy sireet.
Aid. Churchill suggested improving Victoria road and Nicol street.
Aid. Pleace gave notice of a motion to
place a sidewalk on the upper aide of Viotoria road.
The Mayor aaid that he and Aid. Dobeson
went to Viotoria laat week to lay before the
Government the claima of the city for
further school accomodation and was informed that owing to the scarcity of money
not muoh could be done this season. They
were asked by the Finanoe Miniater how
much they thought Nanaimo was entitled
to aud they answered, judging from the
grant made to New Westminster, they
thought $25,000 would be only a fair grant
to *. naimo. It ia expected that the Fin-
anc. Miniater will place a aum in the supplementary estimates to be spent on schools.
The Council adjourned till Monday next
at 7:30 p.m. NANAIMO, B. CM TUESDAY, FEBRUART 27, 1894.
Ot Interest to Annexationists.
Sir Geo. S. Clarke, K.C.B.,  of  the Eng-
lish army, now  stationed   in   Malta, in the
course of an artiile in the March  number of
the Noith American Review,   published   today, replying   to   Andrew   Carnegie's suggestion of a union between England and the
United Statea,   suggests   a   measure of cooperations between the two countries which,
he aays, would represent as much   practical
union as is possible.    Considering the  enor-
mousneaa of the commerce between  the two
countries,      Sir      George       says,       that
it     ia    of    supreme    importance   to   both
that   the   ocean    routes     of   the   world
should be invulnerable, and here, he thinks,
is a baaia for union which will endure.    Did
the two countries form a navy, combining
their   fleets,     they    could    dictate   peace
throughout the sea highways of  the world.
The advantages would   be increasing to  the
American   people, since it   has become impossible   for them to   abstain   from  the responsibility of a great nation.   Such abstention is even incompatible  with the effective
maintenance of the Monroe doctrine. Samoa
must have taught its lesson.    If ultra continental possessions have so far been eschewed
the   time   of   their   necessity    must    Boon
arrive.    Whatever   may be   the temporary
settlement, Hawaii, that important ou.post
of the North Pacific, muat become American
soil, and Captain   Malum   has clearly   indicated another part of the world   where an-
Sexation  will soon  be needed.      With the
ficaragua canal which American enterpriee
will certainly complete must open a new era
of   responsibility, as   President   Cleveland
evidently recognises, while  South  America
reveals a viBta too extensive to portray.   If,
therefore, the assumption   by   the   United
States of ita rightful position among the na
tions ie inevitable, no first step could be ao
wise,   so   aafe   or   so   natural, the   writer
thinki, as a naval league of armed neutrality
with Great Britain aa   to   the settlement of
questionB arising between the two countries.
Sir George suggests that an Anglo-American
council could effectively  deal   with most of
them.   In the laat resort arbitration would
still be available.

School of Penmanship.
The young man with a bad handwriting
who seeks employment among business men
finds there ia no demand for his awkwardness at any price. Everyone who uses a
pen should write legibly and attractively.
There ia no excuse in these days for a young
person to write in a slovenly manner. This
should be left to those of a past gen-ration,
who were educated before the days of business training schools. Here all of ordinary
intelligence and application can acquire a
good business handwriting, the value of
which iB not easy to compute.
The Nanaimo Business College has a
special department of penmanship, at the
head of which is Mr. J. R. Denneny, who
is acknowledged to be uot only one of the
finest penman in the world, but one of the
beat teachers and developers of good pen-
manship in others.

THE OPPOSITION'S OBSTRUCTIVE
TACTICS.
We had occasion in a recent issue to refer
to the very queer tactics of  the Opposition
in tbe Legislative Assembly, giving   two instances of their method of proceeding, whioh
we think were not much to their credit. But
on  Friday   evening   last   and   for   several
hours on Saturday they exceeded   all   their
previous performances, engaging in a systematic effort to obstruct business and  waste
the time of the House.    They made preparations      for      what       our       neighbors
on      the      south      term      filibustering,
and   this   accordingly   was    carried     on
systematically   and   perse vcringly   till the
small hours of the morning, and even beyond
that.   It was   only   by   the exercise of the
utmost resolution  and   patience on the part
of the Government  that any business at all
was put  through.    The  Opposition seemed
determined  that if   they could  prevent it
nothing should be done.    They were, however, defeated by  the steadiness and determination of   the   Government   and its supporters, and have, it   is   to   be hoped, been
taught a useful lesson  as to the folly of setting themselves deliberately to obstruct the
transaction of public business under pretence
of discussing the appropriations.
It is of oourse a very necessary thing to
discuss carefully the various appropriations
demanded by the Government, but wrangling and obstruction are not discussion;
they are in fact intended to prevent discussion and to waste the time of the House.
Mr. Kitchen took a conspicuous part in the
fray, coming armed to the House with a copy
of the Vancouver World from which he pro-
posed to read voluminous extracts and comment at length upon them. This of course
was a very good plan to waste time, and in
point of faot the hon. gentleman did succeed
in wasting about an hour in this absurd
-fashion. The ohairman ruled that the matter read by Mr. Kitchen from a report in
the World of a speech delivered by the Minister of Eduoation before the Teachers' Institute at Vancouver, was irrelevant. Mr.
Kitchen, supported by Mr. Cotton, disputed the chairman's ruling, which
prevailed, and Mr. Kitchen at last sat
down. Mr. Forster commenced an equally
irrelevant speech on the subject of education, of which he probably knows very
little. Hon. Mr. Davie asked the chairman
to rule whether suoh a discussion was in
���order or not.
Hon. Mr. Beaven, before the question
was decided, arose and commenced a speech
on the conduct of the Government, which
he said had provoked the obstructive tactics. Being called to order by the chairman
and requested to sit down, Mr. Beaven
denied his right to order him to take his
seat. The chairman then sent for the
Speaker and referred the whole matter to
him, complaining that the minority were
persistently obstructing business and that
his authority and orders had been ignored.
The Speaker, after consulting May's Parliamentary Proceedings, sharply rebuked Mr.
Beaven and Mr. Sword, who wished to
argue the m t *r, ran .tiki* g ihat ho would
standi no Duusrua*, >ut would give ihem
May straigh . Alte, Bonis further argument
the chair was resumed by Mr, Hall and Mr.
Forster proceeded with his speech, but soon
again wandered from the point, and being
called to order by the chairman refused to
take hia seut. The chairman then rang the
bell for order and called for the ayes and
nays on the item, viz., an appropriation of
$4,000 for the salary of the Miniater of Eduoation. At this Mr. Kitchen and Mr. Beaven both rose, each claiming that
he had the floor. Thereupon a violent altercation took place, in which
Mr. Kitchen was especially oonspiouous by
his wild and excited conduct and defiance of
the chairman. In this he was ably supported by Messrs. Beaven and Cotton, the former of whom told the ohairman that he was
a disgrace to the House, In this way the
whole night was wasted, and it was only
after Mr. Beaven left the House at ten
minutes to eight, a.m., that any real progress was made. But before he went he
graciously informed the members that he
had been treated in a way one might expect
only from a lot of blackguards. When he
returned at twenty minutes to ten some 114
votes had been put through, and it was five
minutes to one when the committee rose,
reported the resolutions, and asked leave to
sit again.
The net result of the obstructive tactics
was much loss ot time, wrangling and confusion, and very little useful discussion.
The whole thing was in fact calculated to
bring Parliamentary institutions into contempt, and for this result the Opposition
were mainly, if not exclusively, responsible.
From Secretary Atquitth's reply in the
House of Commons to a question on the
subject of the anarchists, it appears that the
British Government has no power under the
law to expel them from Great Britain and
does not mean to ask Parliament for power
to do so. Therefore the anarchists may
proceed with their outrages, and the police
if they can catch them, and can get evidence
against the perpetrators of an outrage, will
proseeu'e them, just as they would an}
other offenders. It further appears that the
Government is willing to interchange information with the Governments of the continent about the anarchists, but that is
about all that they feel disposed to do,
This will be good news for the anarchists,
and will help to strengthen their hands for
the work of evil. All they have to do is to
batlle the police, and the British Govern
ment will not meddle with them, no matter
what they do, and no matter what the con
tinental governments may say. It ia to be
hoped that Great Britain may not have
reason to repent, for warming the snake of
anarchism in her bosom.

Tiik Frankfort Gazette says that Russia
and France have exchanged notes on the
subject of the duties imposed on Russian
grain imported into France. Russia, while
disclaiming the right to interfere in the internal affairs ot another power, declared that ahe muat protect Russian interests, and that if the French duties on Russian grain resulted in a derangement of the
Russian export trade she must and would
notify France of the termination of the
Franco-Russian commercial treaty. France
said in reply that she must respond to tbe
popular demand for piotection, but that the
duties on Russian grain would be limited to
the minimum provided for in the new tariff.
According to the Frankfort Gazette thia
answer was not considered satisfactory by
Russia, which in her reply said that she
would adhere to her previously adopted
attitude on the subject. So the matter
stands. It looks as if the Franco-Russian
alliance, if it has any real existence, would
shortly be dissolved. Should this happen
it will undoubtedly be in the interests of
peace in Europe, which an established
Franco-Russian   alliance    would   seriously

An inquest was held on the body of
Charles Vater at 10 o'clock yesterday at his
late residence by Coroner Walkem, when
the following jury was empanelled: Darbey
Rooney (foreman), John Curry, Robert
Gear, James Louden, G. W. Walker and
Harry McMillan. Constable Stephenson
was present and swore to the identity of
the body. After viewing the body, the
inquest was adjourned to Thursday, March
1st at 1 p.m. l'he deceased will be interred
in the Wellington cemetery this afternoon.
A BESnME OF MB. VATER's LAST DAY.
On Saturday morning Mr, Vater had gone
to the mine ae usual, but as the mine was
not working he returned home, and on his
way called at the house of his son William
Henry. While there his hat was oaught by
a wire used as a clothes line, and knocked
off. He laughingly r marked that that was
the way they killed grouse on Blenheim
Mountain He then went home and after
changing his clothes went to the New Town-
site to get his hair cut, after which he
called on his nephew. Af er staying there
a short time, he was going away when the
nephew called him back saying he would
accompany him.
Something, however, prevented the nephew from going with the deceased. After
purchasing two pairs of shoes at Jones &
Co.'s store Mr. Vater waB on his way home
again, passing the time of day with several
as he walked before he oame to the fatal
spot, Engineer Brennan says that he noticed the man approaching'jtho track and
look in the opposite direction, then turning
his head toward the train stepped quickly
in front of the engine. Brennan savs as
their eyes met his heart seemed to jump
into his mouth, but he instantly appplied the
air brake and brought the train to a standstill within a short distanoe. Vater made
a n attempt to clutch hold of the flag staff
but failed to get a grip.
The only hypothesis whioh seems at all
reasonable is, that Mr. Vater was aware of
the approaching train and supposed that it
would go up the switch curve to the depot
instead of travelling straight on over the line
whioh he intended crossing The morning
train does go np the switch, but the noon
train travels straight through, and it is
possible that the unfortunate man oonoluded
that the train was not coming his way.
From where the body was found between
the wheels, with the head over the rail, it is
a wonder that the deceased was not immediately decapitated. When pioked up he
was unconscious and had never recovered consciousness when he died on Saturday evening.
He has left a widow, who was his third wife
and a Urge family who mourn a good  hus
band and excellent father. The whole o
Wellington expresses sorrow for the sad
accident and sympathy with the bereaved
relatives.

Norris' Application in  Suit of Kitchin
vs. "Free Press" Refused.
Victoria, Feb. 26.���[Speoial]���In the
libel suit of Kitchin vs. Norris of the Free
Press in Supreme Court Chambers to-day,
defendant's application for deposit of security for costs was refused.
A Burvey of the barkentine Wrestler now
lying on the White Rock in Esquimalt harbor, has induced the owners to abandon her

went on in a gale about three weeks aga.
The Legislature to-day gave the second
reading to the report of the committee on
supply after defeating several amendments
by Beaven for referring back to committee
appropriations for interest and sinking fund,
whioh he insists are insufficient, and also an
amendment to strike cut the salary of the
fifth minister.
Hon. Mr. Davie announced that the Labor
Bureau Aot Amendment Bill will not be
proceeded with, as since the bill was prepared, there had been received a report of
the Royal Commission appointed in England to inquire into such a proposition made
there. This report he found strongly condemned the prinoiple which is the main
feature of the bill. As the volume contained an immense quantity of evidenoe it
was no light task to study it, and
until the Government had an opportunity
to fully coinoide with the matter, he felt it
would be a bold step to adopt the principle
apparently condemned in the Mother
Country. It might be however, that while
it is the best policy in England and throughout Europe it is not the best here; and
that experience in this oountry of conditions existing between employers and employed might make it seem wise to adopt an
entirely different plan in British Columbia.
He could not pronounoe definitely on this
point now, but he considered it would be
the height of temerity under the circumstances to go on with the bill. Consequently it
is not the intention to proceed with it this
session. The present statute would of oourse
remain in full foroe in the meantime, and
could be called into requisition if unfortunately occasion arose for so doing. As the Government was impressed with the importance
of having all information possible, bearing
on conditions here, as well as in England, it
is the intention to recommend that a commission issue to take evidence during the
recess and gather all the local information
that can be had. With this at hand, the
whole matter can be brought up before the
new House and the government of the day
can deal with it intelligently and with no
lack of information. He thought it his duty
to make this explanation in moving for a
discharge of order for the seoond reading of
the bill.
The Nakusp and Slocan guarantee bill
was brought down with all correspondence
relating to the matter.
With respect to the Cariboo railway, Hon.
Mr. Davie, said a proposition is about to be
made to the Government and may be accepted to build a road for a subsidy of
""0,000 per year for thirty yearB, and 6,000
acres of land per mile in alternate sections,
the land to be given with guarantees to protect public interests.

Prize Sum for Boys.
A worthy citizen of Sandwick, who is
evidently an anti-smoker, offers, through
the Comox Weekly News, a prize sum for
boys. It runs as follows: "Two boys, A
and B, start on a race for 30 years. A
smokes cigars only at the rate of 8 cents a
day, or about ��30 a year; B saves that sum
and puts it out at interest each year at 6
per cent., payable annually. Other things
being equal, how much will Bbe worth more
than A at the end of the race?"
A Runaway Team.
Early last evening a team belonging to H.
Vipond ran away and finally went over the
embankment by the new Salvation Army
Barracks, smashing the wagon into splinters.
A crowd collected at the spot and considerable excitement was caused by the occurrence. It was at first reported that the
horses had been seriously injured and that
the driver had not escaped unscathed. On
investigation it was found that the wagon
was the only portion of the smash up tbat
received injury.
R, T. of T. Nanaimo Counoil No. 3.
[Communicated.]
The Royal Templars of Temperance are
booming in Nanaimo. Three members were
initiated last night and great interest is
taken in our Council. This is one of the
most practical benefit and reform societies
in existence to-day. It gives life insurance
at the rate cf about S12 a year for .-^.OOO,
council fees included. The Royal Templars
are so constituted that to give their time to
frivolity and nonsense is out of the question. They mean business, bence their success. They are always leading in social
and political reform. For farther information on this point consult Sir Oliver. He
knows them.
Fraser River Gold Mining.
The Prince Albert Fiat Hydraulio Mining
Co. has had au offer submitted for 20,000
shares of its stock, made through Eastern
capitalists. If the company decide to accept
this offer, it will be with a view to putting
in two or three more monitors and running
on a larger scale. The Prince Albert Flat
Hydraulic Mining Co. was incorporated on
the 1st of June 1893, and owing to the push
and enterprise of its promoters, has now in
operation one of the latest improved and
most approved hydraulic plants, capable of
washing 1,500 cubic yards yer day.
One of the drawbacks to hydraulic minim;
in British Columbia has been a scarcity of
water. This company, however, has sufficient to run and operate many monitors,
while its prospects of gold have been very
encouraging. The developments by this
company are watched with interest by both
local und foreign capitalists. Should one
half of the result be realized which is predicted for this company by the old miners
and expertB on the Fraser river, British
Columbia will again become famous as a
gold producing country, and hydraulic mining will become one of the chief industries
of our Province. That the Prince Albert
Flat Hydraulic Mining Company will prove
successful and obtain prominence iu the
mining world there is little doubt. All
well wishers of the Province must naturally
wish this company prosperity in its enterprise.

KASLO!!
KOOTENAY LAKE, B.C.
IS COMING Tu THE FRONT WITH A 000ND
It is the center of tbe Silver-Lead Mining Industry of the famous Slocan Region, which is now
sending $75,000 worth of Ore to Kaslo per week for shipment to the American smelters.
Mining men from all parts of the world say that it is the richest silver district known. The progress of development work in the mines verities this statement.
Thousands of men will be employed in these mines. The natural base of supplies is Kaslo, which
is admirably adapted for the purpose, being a beautiful townsite, situated on a bay possessing excellent
shipping advantages.
The right of way for the Kaslo-Slocan Railway has been cleared, and the bridge foundations
have been put in place, so that the work of grading and track-layiDg may proceed at the earliest possible moment after the snow disappears.
The growth of Kaslo last year was very considerable. It is now an incorporated town, having a
population of 2,000 people. That this population will be doubled before the end of the present year is
unquestioned.
Kaslo offers to investors a most promising field. The opening up of the mines tributary to it
must build up Kaslo. i he development of these mines is now in progress. Many others will be worked as soon as easily accessible.   An investment in a Kaslo lot will pay you handsomely.

LATEST, FEBRUARY 26th, 1894:
Kaslo, B. C, Feb. 26.���Nearly all of Front street, Kaslo, between 3rd and 4th, was destroyed
by fire on Saturday niyht. Thirty buildiugs were burned, including all the hote's except the Leland
and Slocan.    Green Br*>s.' buildings, .J. B. Wilson's store and other parts of the town escaped.
Loss estimated at $100,000, with small insurance. The only fire protection is a small hand en-
fjiiie, with a volunteer brigade, the wa'cr having to be taken from the bay. Tlie Customs Offices,
Byers' Hardware Store, and all the principal business establishment-i of the town were located on
this street, and succumbed to the devouring Hames.

Swell   Guests  Who   Prey  Upon
Their Hosts at Banquet*
A Detective'!  Presence Now Required at
"Fashionable Gatherings In Mew
York to Watch Kleptomaniac*.
' K very body has heard of the "Quator-
zieme," the professional "fourteenth
person" at dinners. There were men in
Paris not so very many years ago who
made it a business to serve at short notice as gTiests at banquets where the
accident of thirteen at table occurred,
thus satisfying the superstitious by adding one to the number. The individual
thus called in was introduced as a friend
invited to the repast, and there was
nothing about his appearance or demeanor which could arouse suspicion
that he was not present on the same
footing with the others.
It seems surprising to find such a custom, in a modified form, newly introduced into New York society, says a correspondent in the St. Louis (! lobe- Democrat. The fashionable hostess now-a-
days, in giving a dinner commonly engages a detective of gentlemanly aspect
and address to take the part of a guest
at her table. He is invited, not for any
superstitious reason, but to protect the
tableware and other household property from being stolen by the other
diners. Most strange does it appear
that the entertainer should take such a
precaution against possible dishonesty
on the part of the people whom she
knows well enough to regale with intimate hospitality, but experience has
shown that it is very necessary. Such
articles as solid gold spoons are very
likely to be pocketed, and the fact has
long been notorious that no small and
costly piece of bric-a-brac is safe in the
most exclusive drawing-room. "Klep-
mania" is the term charitably applied
to a thieving habit which is not so very
rare among persons of good social
standing.
"The other day at Newport," said the
chief of the principal detective agency
in this city, "one of my men was employed to look out for a large reception.
He saw a handsomely-dressed woman
deliberately take and secrete the top of
a beautiful vase. The object oould have
been of no use to her, but the loss of it
would have spoiled an ornament worth
16,000. He stepped up to her and said
pleasantly: 'Madam, I presume that
you want to have a duplicate of that
vase?' 'Oh, yes,' she replied in some
confusion. 'Well,' he replied, 'I guess
you had better put it back, and you can
get a duplicate by sending your artist
here.' Of course she gave it up at once.
Nothing more was said save that her
name was reported to the hostess, who
dropped it from the list.
"That is the way we always manage.
Exposure does no good in such cases.
The same method is practiced at a dinner, where the detective keeps a quiet
watch upon things, only eating and
drinking enough to keep up appearances, One lady of my acquaintance
has all of her most valuable bric-a-brac
fastened securely, so that the articles
cannot be removed. She has given up
having silver-backed brushes aud other
precious appurtenances in the dressing-
rooms at her parties, because they were
stolen so frequently.
"Hut it is at weddings chiefly that
the society kleptomaniacs get in their
work. At large affairs of the kind we
are sometimes called upon to furnish as
many as three men���one to walk about
in the room where the presents are exposed, another to stand by the diamonds and a third to remain outside on
the sidewalk, for the purpose of keeping professional thieves from entering
the house. It is a fact that thieves in
the regular line of business carefully
watch the announcements of swell
weddings with a view to robbery.
"My observation has shown that
kleptomania is actually a disease. It
is much more common among women
than men. Furthermore it is in a sense
inherited, and the investigation in
many cases has tended to show that
longings on the part of a mother will
thus affect her unborn child. So thoroughly am I convinced that victims of
it are not responsible that I always try
to protect them from exposure. They
steal not from any necessity, but from
morbid fancy. At the same time they
come under the head of 'opportunity
thieves'���they only yield to the temptation when good chances offer, and they
think they are secure from detection.
Not long ago I caught a woman of the
highest social position in'the aot of secreting a diamond brooch at a jeweler's.
1 followed her carriage home, asked to
see her privately, and obtained from
her a six hundred-dollar cheek, which
was the price of the article stolen. Her
husband is one of the best known men
in New York financial circles. He
never heard of the transaction. What
would have been the use of creating a
scandal?"

LEARN HOW TO REST.
|fothing So Becoming to Both flesh and
Spirit as Complete Fallowness.
Ths art of good looks is a line art indeed,
and one that deserves the encouragement
it seems to be getting on every side. Even
those "aids to beauty"���in the shape of
lotions, lemon water and skin soaps���so enthusiastically urged upon womankind from
the back pages of every magazine and
pamphlet in the land, are not to be treated
with topping scorn; they hare their place
and use in the general struggle for loveliness. But, continues a writer in Harper's
Bazar, why not back up these efforts for
comeliness by common sense conduct
throughout each day's wear and tear?
To begin with, women sit too much, and
women stand quite too much. Nothing is
so wearisome as "standing about," even to
the well trained body that has been drilled
into good poise, and sitting is not resting,
however cleverly women may delude themselves on this point.
The young girl who desires to keep away
crowsfeet and that jaded look we all know
go well, and to retain the suppleness and
adorable bloom of extreme youth, should
when off parade or off duty, as the case
may be, and in ber own room make a couch
or the floor her habitual resting place
Absolute repose comes to the tired mus
cles only when the body is in a reclining
position, and absolute repose comes to tha
overstrung nerves only when the musculai
system is perfectly at rest���relaxed.
The middle aged woman could, I am posl-
tive, woo back much of the freshness and
lithesomeuess of girlhood if she would be
at a little pains to learn how to rest.
Five minutes of rest flat on one's back on
the floor or on a bard, smooth couch are
worth half an hour of so styled "rest" In an
armchair or in that unreposeful tempter,
the rooking chair.
Someone has said to the women of today, "Never stand when you oan sit; never
sit when you can lie down." This exhortation, applied with some elasticity, is tha
best recipe for beauty I know of.
While I have little sympathy with ths
gospel of laziness preached so consistently
by some lives, I do recommend frequent
daily lapses into complete fallowness.

THE ART OF SHOPPING
The art of shopping is not necessarily to make at all times a good bargain, but to secure a fair equivalent of the money spent, and to be able to do
this with the least expenditure of time aud tr uble.
___.  GhOOJD   _3__^T?Gh^_-IIT
Is distinguished from a cheap bargain, but in these days of bargains and bargain-days, when from one end of Canada to the other���yea, and the
United State?, too���the newspapers are crying bargains���and we read about bargains in this thing, and bargains in that thing, when bargains are by
many more to be sought after than wisdom, and when every dealer in the couritry from the "peanut vendor" to the "merchant prince" call- everything
a bargain���in these days it is not so easy to distinguish a good bargain from the cheap one.
TETIE   EBSTJLT   OF   SIBIOIPIPXJSrCEf
Should be a feeling of satisfaction with the goods purchased. A sense of havirig accomplished what you set out to do, and that in a reasonable
and sensible manner.    Not a tired-to-death feeling, and an uncertainty as do whether that forty nine cent article was worth fifty cents after all.
-we s^"y t:h:_*_t the "wt _\_c^__sr
Who desires to make an art of shopping will fasten her faith to the store that proposes to give her always the cash value for her money. It is for
the trade of all who desire good bargains, as we distinguish them, that we work.

in this harbor with 801 bs of steam on. When
taken out it was found to be quite ready to
continue busiuess at the old stand and it ia
still iu use." The fact of a portable donkey
engine not exploding when falling into
water, does not make it impossible for
stationary boilers to explode when deluged
with water.
