under the name of "John Milton's
Family Bible." appeared suddenly upon
the book collestors' horizon about six
years ago, announced yesterday that he
Is convinced that the relic, for which he
paid $1,225 at a recent sale in this city,
is not genuine. He was confirmed ia
this belief, he said, after receiving tho
report of David N. Carvalho, the handwriting expert. The latter reported that
tn his opinion, the writings ln the Bible
purporting to be autographs of the author of "Paradise Lost," and his wife, were
palpable forgeries.
The present owner of the Milton
Bible is George H. Richmond.
The famous Bible which Mr. Richmond now has on his hands, but which
he means to return -to the seller, baa
been accepted as genuine by professional experts of the highest standing in this
country. From one to another it has
passed, always receiving the stamp of
their approval. It is known, however,
that certain wealthy amateurs who examined the antique when it was offered
for sale, had their doubts that it had
never been in the hands of England's
great poet.

With Cupid at the Throttle.
Chicago,  Dec.   18.���Many newlyweds.
Just how many the ticket agents refused
to tell, have booked as passengers on
the "Honeymoon Special," which leaves
Chicago today   on  Its  first trip  to the
nunny land of Southern California.   The
trip of tbe happy brldeB and bridegrooms
Is to occupy   thirty   days and   will  be
made by way of the Northwestern, the
Southen Pacific und Union Pacific Hues.
The Idea was originated by the manager
of the tourist department of the three
toads, who In  the course of hlB many
yeurs of experience had observed, with
anguish, tho Tact that brldnl couples are
almost Invariably made the butt of much
fun and frequently annoyance on their
wedring trips.    Hence ihe "Honeymoon
Special," upon which Ihe bridal couples
can do just as th-.-y like without being
observed    or     Interfered  with  by   outsiders.

Some of the larger cities of Canada
are facing a serious problem in finding
work for their unemployed In an effort
to save i*: m from want without reducing tliem to actual pauperism. At auch
times ii is always suggested that exten
Hive public work be done to provide em*
j.lnymeni. Unfortunately at sucb ��ii
nets city councils would also gladly t<-
trench. Few municipalities have any
accumulated funds and money is not
easily borrowed at such times even upon civic credit
in western Canada the problem is
of two kinds. _ast ol the Rockies the
unemployed will consist of mechanics
who are out of work in the cities and
towns. Those who can turn their hands
to other things nerd not have any ap
prehensions. There is si ill no reason
to believe 1 hut either the Grand Trunk
of tiie Canadian Northern will suspend
operations. Along the Lines "i those
railways there is work for all the men
who are likely lo apply.
in liritish coinmlua the problem Is
unlikely to be acute in tlie interior. Vancouver City will suffer mosl. Normally
there an* always a number of idle men
round Vancouver in the winter, fisher
men and othars whose callings are
followed chiefly in summer. Their pns
-*nce does not imply any distress. But
this winter the number will be swollen
by hundreds, perhaps thousand.-*, of Jog-
g< ra from the northern logging camps.
During the past year, too, many have
gone to Vancouver wiih small means
hoping to make _ fortune in the rapid*
-growing young metropolis. Some of
these probably have succeeded well
enough not to fear the winter. Others
may have to Join the army for which
ajl   possible   work   will   be   provided.
Kootenay** and Nelson especiailly,
ees strangely little evidence pf the
depression, other than the partial elimination of speculative values. The lum-
bei camps and mills bave closed, smelters are idle, aud work has ceased in
several of the largest mines, but the
men thus thrown out of employment
have either turned very quickly to other
puisuits or have  crossed  the  border.
In an informal discussion that follow*
ed Monday night's council meeting one
aid, nii.ui who is in a lair position for
learning BUCh conditions expressed tlie
opinion thai the city authorities might
have tour or five cases of destitution
to look after, Four or live cases In a
period of general bard times, and in a
city oj nearly 7,000 Inhabitants,, eannol

is almost entirely a matter of confidence. Andrew Carnegie's analogy of
the storm that clears the air is foolish
oi course like everything else he has
said on the subject other ahan manufacturing Steel, sweating labor and hoarding money.
The cause of recurring panics is the
general extravagance begotten of periods ol prosperity. There remains an
immense amount of work, necessary
and ultimately remunerative, to be done.
Hui neither nations nor individuals can
save the capital necessary for such
work so long as normal expenditure
is kept Up to lhe level of possible revenue.

tive pole, there ls a cast iron tank full
of carbonate of potash dissolved in water. The current Is regulated by a rheostat. The tool is plunged to the desired
depth in the solution, just as for hardening in the usual manner; the current
is then switched on and the tool heated
to the same degree as would be required in ordinary hardening. When
the proper temperature has been reached and held for the required length of
time, the current is switched off and
the tool left in the batbj which latter.
by the simple act of switching off the
current, Is at once converted iuto a
hardening bath.
Another method, which permits of
hardening places on the surface of
pieces, where the dipping process
would not accomplish the desired object, Is local heating with the electric
arc. Here the tool or other article is
laid upon a copjier block, and an ordinary arc carbon held tn a safety holder;
the electric connections with holder and
block being made, the carbon pole is
touched to the place to be locally hardened. Of course the heating is both
intense and local; the workplece Is at
once plunged into the ordinary hardening bath, and when one place is hardened the other may be heated and so on.
The electric current may also be ns. d
to draw the temper of a hollow object
Instead of using a red-hot iron rod to
plunge into the bore, a cold rod is t m-
ployed, which Is used as a resistance
In the circuit of a secondary current
of about two volts tension. Thi* temperature -of the iron .rod gradually
rises, and when the work-piece has
reached the desired color the current
is shut off. This method is said to produce less liability to cracUing than the
old-fashioned way of drawing the temper with a hot rod.

Transcontinental   Railway    Makes   Fast
Progress Across Prairies Towards Edmonton.
Edmonton, Dec. 18��� The building or
the Broui transcontinental is beginning
to iiBsume an Interest lo western people
of a different nature front thai evidenced heretofore. In the past there
has been much pul.ll-.hed about the immense construction camps doited at
inlervals well nigh acress two-thirds
of it continent. The military organization obtaining in these canvas towns of
industry has heen enlarged upon by the
palters In all the leading cilies and reports from hospital Inspectors, and
other governineni officials whose duty
duty relates to the maintenance of cleanliness, health, efficiency, anil fair treatment of the men employed, have occupied prominent space In every live
Canailhin newspaper.
From east of Saskatoon, however, a
letter reached Mr. Stevenson, a gentleman employed with the Mny-Sharpe construction company, forwarded by T. \V.
1-one. fort-man on one of the camps of
the McDonald McMillan Co., who have
completed their contract between Portage la Prairie and Saskatoon, telling of
a return trip over the completed line to
Portage la Prairie.
Starting from near Nlkomis, the two
section i rain left for Manitoba at the
wind up of the construction season.One
huBdr. tl and thirty-five teams, being
the animal equipment of camps 1. 2 and
4, were gathered at this point. A sea of
canvas stretched away from ihe track,
and the weather was the most favorable
known at this time of the year, too good
in fact for cessation of work.
Mr. Ume declared that the man who
huB assisted in the construction of a
railway has an added feeling in going
over tt for the first time from that
possessed by the ordinary traveller. The
Journey n. Portage la Prairie was oom-
plated without a hitch, and the animals
transferred to the ranch of the company
for the winter.
NlkomlS, the point at which the wind
up took place, is situated about ninety
miles east of Saskatoon, lt Is at the
point where the G. T. P. and the C. P, It.
meet. Within six weeks' time, as a re-
Bult of the favorable railway facilities
of the townslte, three hotels, two banks
and numerous stores and houses sprang
up. The fulure of the place seems to
IKjiut lo as rapid a growth as its mushroom past. All along the line other in*
stances or a similar nature have occurred, villages and settlements growing
up in the wake or the construction ot
the line.
In all probability the work between
Saskatoon and Winnipeg will be finished and that portion or Ule line carrying
traffic early In the spring. The grading
between Bdmonton and Saskatoon, in
the hands or the Canadian White Co.,
Is also progressing ravorably. a portion
which they sublet to the McDonald
McMillan Co.. near lhe Touchwood Hills
being finished. Given favorable condi*
linns of weather and labor market, the
prediction made by Bays on his last
rial! to Bdmonton should be capable of
nccump'lBhmenl next fall, and Edmonton
may hope to see ihe Grand Trunk officials enter Alberta's capital over their
own line.
Mr. Stevenson, who was ln the neighborhood of Siiskiiini.il a few months ago,
slates thai the bridge across the Sas
katoon Is making greal progress Inwards completion. A significant fact of
o. T. P. construction development was
the recent visit to Edmonton of one of
the firm of McDi.nniii McMillan Inspecting th,- surveyed line between here und
I'enililini crossing, wilh I view to ten*
ii. :ini; for the contract.

Jubilee Singers.
An audience that Ailed the building
welcomed Williams' Original Dixie Jubilee Singers at St. Paul's Presbyterian
church yesterday evening. The company, consisting of eight performers,
in rendering a programme the attractiveness and interest of which never
llaifged fully sustained theii-wide-spread
reputation. Plantation songs of char
acteristic negro type were presented in
rapid succession interspersed with solos,
duets, etc., of more familiar kinds.
Touches of quaint humor were abundant
and helped to keep the audience on the
alert from beginning to end. The effect
of the voices in combination was -jreiy
fine, constant practice and complete mutual Understanding permitting the rendering of many delicate and exquisite
effects. The work of the individual
singers wa. acceptable throughout, Mr.
Crabbee's full basso and Mrs. Williams'
rich contralto being especially note*
worthy. Hut amid so much merit it is
difficult to particularize. The absence
of any touch of vulgarity waa especially pleasing. The company deser7S the
support of all who can appr-icia*.e refined and highly  finished musical  work.
