A Rossland Invention.
Two Rossland men. Charles
Ei-icsou and William Walleen,
havfe brought out an invention
which will be of great practical

It consists of two eccentric bolts

they are reversed, having tho
nut where the head used to be.
This does away with a great
deal of manual labor. The
manipulation of the old bolts is
slow aud the nuts were difficult
to loosen and tighten, but under this invention the work  can

orchestra provided the musical

first class selections that were

A large part of this far-reaching success is due 1«• the foresight, energy,
and tenacity of Patrick Cudahy, who,
as a grocer's errand boy. began work
for one dollar a week, and had to work
fifteen hours a day to earn that, aud
for tho fifteen years following his start

fo possess more kerchiefs than they

pretty squares to other uses should be
met  favorably by thc fair sex.

That   llighl   a   spciji;il   session   ot'   the
city oflicial.s was convened.    Thc treas-
i urer held up an empty purse, and thoy'
iknew  well  that  not another cent  could!
lrawu   from   thc   people.     Into   tho |
earth had been  sunk thousands of dollars that would return nothing, and the
citizens  threw  the  blame   for  the   non-
success of the   venture on  the officials.
The well-digger begged for a few more
feet.     Tho    mayor    considered.     Then,
with   the   inspiration   of  a   prophet,   he
turned his back on the legal technicalities and ordered thc well-boring to pro
ceed.    Already it was down a thousand
feet;   it   was  a   terrible  risk   to  spend
more money and illegal to boot, hut he
took the risk.
Next morning the miracle happened.
To this day they tell of it. At !♦
o'clock the citizens were electrified at
the sight of the mayor, coatless and
hatless, rushing from his harness store
j up the centre of the road, vainly striv-
I ing to overtake a workmen iu better
training a hundred yards ahead. Tho
citizens, scenting something unusual,
joined in the chase. At the well everything was going up in the air. At just
1,010 foet a terrific flow of dry gas had
beon struck—a blow that registered
when they got it under control 100
pounds pressure in eighteen seconds, J."iO
pounds iu forty seconds, 250 pounds in
one minute and twelve! seconds, Thoir
eyes began to bulge as the register ran
up to 300, 400, 500, and finally stopped
at 'ioo pounds to the square inch.
The mayor is living yet; but he smiles
when you ask bim what would havo
boen his chances of escape from the infuriated citizens, with one train a dav
out of Medicine Hat, if thc
nil. Later they wore I.red

Serving of Fruits
During tho warm weather substitute
fruits for the heavier starches, sugars
aud meats. To have thom wholesome
and easy of digestion, servo them plain,
uncooked and ripe, t-jmall fruits, as
strawberries, raspberries, blackberries,
blueberries, and currants should bo moderately chilled; over-chilling renders
them severely acid aud unpalatable.
Tho sub-acids or sweet fruits, as mulberries, giiavcs, bananas, cantaloupes
and water-melons, shoubl be served
quite cold; peaches medium. The small
soft fru'ts should be handled as little
as possible. If sandy, wash thom by
(Hitting them in a colander and dipping
the colander down and up several times
in a pan of cold water. Strawberries
should be washed before thoy are hulled
otherwise thoy become water-soaked.
Do not, under any circumstances, throw
the fruit into the water and lift them
out with the hands.

that black-and tan foxhounds and part

Many Americans erroneously associate the bloodhound with tho trailing of
slaves, and imagine him to bo a fierce
and bloodthirsty beast. They connect
him with the dogs used with Uncle

Iii reality, the Knglish bloodhound is
c line, intelligent, companionable animal, c nctiircl trailer, which can be
trained to attack criminals, if sn elesir-
ed. The name of flu* dog naturally
brings tear tn the criminal's heart, and
the bloodhound's ill-deserved reputation
for fierceness is sometimes useful. On
account of his wonderful power of.seeiit
he is being used more und more as a
man-trailer in this country. Ho is used
by the police end detective departments
of the Xew Vork Central and Pennsylvania Railroads, by the O.S. Penitentiary el Atlanta, (Ie., and elsewhere.
Anyone that will treat an Knglish
bloodhound intelligently can make a
man-trailer nf him, and his proficiency
will depend mostly on the trainer's ability and the work he gives him; the best
results will be obtained when the dog is
taken young. A. trained and natural
man-trailer as he* is by nature, it is
much to be regretted that the owners of
the English bloodhound have* not endeavored tu bring bim more before the

Every one is familiar with the old
superstition that sailors whistle during
a calm in order tn bring down upon
them ii favorable breeze. Basil Hell
says that during one of his voyages,
when the wind died away, one might
have thought that the ship was planted
in a grove of trees, in tho height nf
springtime, so numerous were the whist
lers. But whistling must be done with
discretion, for
Whistles rash bid tempest roar,
anel in consequence seamen have been
known tn forbid anyone to whistle upon
their bouts nnd sometimes even to
threaten a gay-hearted passenger unconscious of his error, A fisherman once
forbade a young girl to enter his boat
because she wes known tn be able to
whistle. The art would appear tn be
esoteric, to be practised by none but
tin*   initiated. '   .

Trump hud lushed tu his mast ns a sym-

significance in the eyes of his men.
They probably looked, upon it as capable of bringing winds favorable to

A "star-dogged moon" was thought
to portend a storm:

Storming the  Taku Forts
(From the Narrative of Mr. John Demp
aey, late 60th Rifles, as told to
Walter Wood)
lu 1850 a joint expedition against China
was prepared by Great Britain and
Prance, and in August, I860, the allies
stormed and took the Taku Forts.
Thoy afterwards advanced towards
Pekin, which was invested and surrendered. Sir Hope Grant, the British commander-in-chief, us a special
punishment of the Chinese, ordered
the Emperor's magnificent summer
palace to be burnt, and this was done,
the* historic building being destroyed,
alter it had been thoroughly ransacked. The Chinese had captured a number of liritish subjects, some of whom,
after being cruelly tortured, were barbarously murdered; while the rest, after terrible sufferings as prisoners,
were restored to their own countrymen. As one of the results of tho
war, China was gradually opened up
to trade with Europeans. Mr. Demp-
sey, who tells the story, served in the
tiOth Rifles, now the Royal Rifle Corps.

IjHGHTING the hea*.hen Chinee strikes
' many people as a humorous performance, but they are mostly

soil, I should think, is about the worst
in the world for campaigning.
While 1 was out in China in the war
of I860, I seemed to spend most of my
time in mud, and when it wasn't mud
it. was water. Put yourself, in imagination, on somo of the mud-flats on the
hanks of the Thames, in London, when
t.he tide is out, and you will get some
idea of tlie. sort of ground we hail to
tight over when we stormed the Taku
You might carry the idea a little farther, and fancy that the gloomy buildings on the banks of the Thames are
forts, and that you havo been landed
in boats on the mud and have to plant
ladders against the walls and scramble
up them to the top, with the very good
chance of being hurled buck or having
a spear or knife or sword thrust through
That, was the kind of entertainment
we had to put up with on that August
day, nearly fifty years ago, when we
rushed to tlie assault, side by side with
Frenchmen, and fought like iiends to be
.■first to plant our country's flag ou the
ramparts. We all panted to get in, but-
only as real victors. There could be no
half measures with an enemy like ours,
because it was worse than death itself
bo fall into the hands of the Celestials
as captives, 1 shrink even now when 1
think of what might happened to me,
and when I recall the Temple of Horrors, as we named it—a building which
we entered when we had won our battle, and where we saw the evidence of
^hat the Chinamen eould do in the way
-of torturing and destroying prisoners—
but I will come to that Inter.
We struggled through the mud and
water, waist-deep, nfter we left the ships
in the boats, und were a truly filthy
army when we got ashore and made preparations for the storming of the forts.
We knew that that would be a pretty
desperate business, because we had deep
ditches to figfct ovei1 and there was water to swim. Then, at the end of thnt
advance, we had to plant ladders against
the straight sides of the forts and clam
Vter up them as best wc could.
We had scaling-ladders made of bam-
•boo, which had the advantage of being
very light and strong; and we had a
special sort of ammunition—a patent, I
think, which, it wns claimed, would not
be all'ected by immersion in wnter.
That was a lucky circumstance for us,
because our pouches became thoroughly
sodden, lint tne grent thing was to
fight our way into the forts aud drive
the Chinamen out, and to do that we
had to depend mostly on our own nim-
bleness, and cold steel. The (ireurms in
t.hose. days wore not. much good for j
storming purposes. They would not car-1
ry far, and you could not shoot quickly
with them.
I must conless that when X looked
upon the Tnku forts I felt that I would
a good deal rather be inside than out.
They looked tremendously strong and
grim, with guns grinning nt us on every
hand, and particularly that face which
we were to assault. I believe there
were nearly four hundred cannou, of
different sizes, and la?sides these the
Chinese had all sorts of firearms and
spears and swords.
They had fearsome inventions, too,
called stinkpots, which they were accustomed to throw at their enemies, and by
means of their evil fumes try to put the
men out of action. We knew, too, that
thoy*had an unpleasant and unsoldierly
habit of hurling quicklime, in the hope
that the dangerous stuff would burn the
face und destroy the sight of the enemy.
1 think that all the stunners, both
French and Knglish, would rather face
guns and steel than those barbarous
helps to victory.
The Chinese had their own methods
of lighting. They had tremendous faith
in noise aud show, and they had all
sorts of devices for creating uproar and
striking terror into us. Tlie rampurts
were quite gay with tings of all colors,
mostly very gaudy, and taken altogether the sigut of tue Taku Dorts was as
strange and uncanny as any man eould
wish to see. But there wns nothing gorgeous or inspiriting or romantic about
the business. I never saw anything
more depressing than that region of
mud ami wet, and tin* pluck seemed to
ooze ont of us as we made our preparations for thc storming.
We wallowed in mud, nnd slept in it.
And as for little reptiles, thoy positively
swarmed. After we landed, wo turned
in for the night, and I lay down to
sleep as best. 1 could. Ity rest wns
troubled, I did not, know quite why, but
I had that sensation of oppression
which su often comes over one in sjeop.
At last T pulled myself together and
awoke. Then I wished myself asleep,
or unconscious, or in any state that
would have spared me the spectacle of
what I saw, for i was literally covered
with tiny frogs—creatures about half
as big as my thumb. They wero squatting on me, and jumped away in a cloud
as soon as t moved and shook" them off.
They had made themselves comfortable
on us, wanting a change, perhaps, from
the monotony of the mud und wet. The
frogs were quite harmless, of course, but
it wns creepy and uncanny to find them
using one as a lodging.
When all was ready, and tho heavy
rains allowed US to make a start, we began the operations of war by assaulting a place named Tangtu. It fell to
the lot and honor of the 60th to help
considerably in the reduction of the
place, for we found a sort of secret
passage, after struggling through an appalling double ditch which was really
like a canal. I think we must have
fairly paralysed the Celestials, because
they bolted as soou as we got into Tang
tu, and left forty-five guns in our possession. That was an appetizer for the
Taku Forts, which wore the great ob
enemy who determined t
to break down the defene
1, for one, was thankful when the
bugles sounded the advance, and thc
hosts of us, French and liritish, march
ed to the assault. I liked the French.
They were good men, and fine men. and
i believe that they were moved by a determination to d'o their best, and to
maintain the reputation of their country for military valor.
Those were the days, you know, when
we went to our stormiugs with colors
flying and drums beating. All that is
a thing of the past, for in these times
no man could live who bore a standard.
He would be too good a target. I sometimes think that the old-fashioned
storming has gone for ever.
In modern warfare there have been
some tine performances by British
troops. T may be wrong, or prejudiced,
or both; but 1 cannot help thinking
that the storming of the Taku F.orts
was amongst the very finest. But we
hnd some splendid men to do it, if it
comes to that, for many of us, including
myself, had served in* the Mutiny. I
hail gone from Indiu to China. I believe
that of all the soldiers of the 60th who
rushed upon the Celestials, 1 am the
only one left in the neighborhood of the
depot, where we are talking.
We had made a road, by August .JOth,
to within less than a thousand yards of
the forts, and our Armstrong guns, at
a range of something more than a mile,
had opened tire. The idea was, of
course, that the walls should be broken
and breached, and that in the openings
made we should enter and rout the Chinese. Things seem so very wimple when
they are'described and laid down for
you in orders; but they are so terribly
difficult when it becomes a question of
putting them into hard practice.
There was mud to be struggled through
and ditches had to be fought across,
ditches which, in some places, were so
full nnd deep thnt the only way across
was to swim; yet officers and men did
not. hesitate to hurl themselves into thc
thick, muddy water, sword and bayonet
and rifle and all. The marvel is thnt at
such times troops can get through at all,
much less score a victory. They conquer only, I think, because of that fierce
lust for fighting which takes possession
of every properly constructed British
soldier on the field of battle.
Our own guns boomed nnd flashed,
and under cover of them we struggled
on—we of the 60th and the old 44th and
the 07th. Not many years before, the
44th hail been cut up in Afghanistan,
where, in the snow clad pass at (iunda-
muck, the weak and wounded fell bc
nenth the hillmeu's knives. The old
41th—uow the Hssex Regiment—were
known as the "Little Fighting Fours,''
and nobly that day they sustained their
nickname. They suffered heavily, and
during a day which covered many men
with glorv none won greater renown
than those of the 44th,
Struggling and floundering, burdened
with our arms and scaling-ladders, we
fought our way towards the forts whicli
had opened lire on us. Tt seemed ages
before we were near enough to plant
our bamboo ladders against the frowning walls of the forts, nnd before we
strove, in a confused heap, to be amongst tne first to set foot ou the rungs
which meant literally the rungs of fame.
1 know that we in the 60th did our
duty-*-rhad we not always done it, aud
havo md the 60th more battle honors
than any other regiment in the liritish
Army? But the 44th and the OTthwere
in before us, and it wns au ensign named Rogers, of tne "Little Fighting
Fours," who was the lirst Englishman
to gain a footing in the forts
Ensign Rogers and other officers and
men had dashed into a ditch and made
lor a hole which had been pounded in
the walls by our guns. Ladder after
ladder had been planted, and almost as
soon as the bamboo structures hud been
placed against tho walls they had been
thrown over by the Chinamen or dragg
ed into the fort itself. Aud all the time
thc guns were crashing, and the enemy
wero hurling vases ot lime, stinkpots,
cold shot, stones, and anything else on
which they could lay their Celestial
hands, while the air, thick with battle
smoke, resounded with the heathens'
yells and noises.
Meanwhile, Ensign Rogers struggled
fiercely at an embrasure, trying to get
a foothold but thc enemy was too much
for him, and he was driven back. The
subaltern rushed to another spot, but
there again he was battled, and it seemed as if defeat for him was certain.
Another young officer—Lieutenant
L on on. of the 67th—saw what was taking place, aud dashed to his comrade's
help, and then occurred one of the most
thrilling incidents of that astonishing
assault. With the swiftness of thought
Jiieuteuant Lenon rammed the point of
his sword into a crevice of the fort,
and using the blade as a step, Ensign
Rogers managed to scramble through
the embrasure nnd to bo the first Englishman, literally, to get inside the fort.
He instantly set to work to help others
through, and they say that the brave
Lieutenant Lenon was the third to enter.
Ensign Rogers and Lieutenant Lenon
got tho Victoria Cross, and with them,
for the storming, .lohn McDougall, a private of the "Littl" Fighting Fours,"
Lieutenant Burslem (ho afterwards became a captain in the 60th), Private
Thomas Lane of the 67th, and Ensign
John Worthy Chaplin, of the same regiment, a gallant gentleman who afterwards became colonel of lhe 107th Regiment, and who is*still living, t believe,
in Leicestershire.
Ensign Chaplin was the lirst man to
mount what is called the "cavalier" of
the fort, and lie was badly wounded iu
doing so. lie carried the Queen's Colors of his regiment, nnd when the storming party had made a breach, he planted
the silken banner there. Another fighter, Arthur Fitzgibbon, a hospital apprentice of thc Indian Medical Establishment, won the Victoria Cross at the
storming of the forts; so, you sec, no
fewer than seven crosses were awarded
for tho assault. I believe that, except
for Rorke's Drift, Taku Forts gave more
V.C.'s for one event than nny other action in the annals of the British Army
since the decoration was instituted.
Tho Cross does not mean everything;
but it is something of a standard, at
nny rate, and shows how desperate and
determined a business was the taking
of the forts. Of those Crosses the 07th
gained four, nnd two went to the "Little Fighting Fours."
They say that it was a Frenchman
who wus actually first to got a footing
in tho forts, and I am sure that no
survivor of the storming will deny the
right of his memory to his honor. I
believe the Frenchmnn was a drummer
nf the 102nd Regiment of thc Line.
With an  agility that seemed incred
ible, and a luck that appeared to be
impossible, in view of the fury of the
fire, he gained the summit of the
parapet, and there, a solitary figure, he stood, firing rifle after rifle
that wa.s handed to him. He went on
tiring till death claimed him, for he was
killed by a spear-thrust through tbt*
brain. Then another man, carrying a
pick-axe. tried witli frantic courage to
take his place, and he wenl oa fight
ing and picking till he was shot.
It seemed us if no human being eould
live at such a furiously contested (dace,
yet Lieutenant Burslem, of the 67th,
dashed forward and continued the work
of this brave pioneer.
Just a round two hundred office™ and
men, in killed and wounded—that was
the price we paid on the British side
to get our colors planted in the forts,
and to see the Chinese flying from us,
scattering to any place that gave them
shelter. Many of them fled towards
thc Summer Palace of the Emperor, and
many more towards Pekin, while the
rest sought shelter in the neighboring
country and villages. Many there were,
too, who remained in the Taku Forts,
for our guns had told heavily upon
them, and the storming had been stern.
I was amazed, on examining tho forts
to find that many of the guns were durn
mies. They were made of bamboo, but
from the embrasures they looked just
like the real artillery with which the
Chinese managed to do considerable
mischief. These wooden guns wero very
tough, in their way, and I. .l.-resay they
were capable of firing powder, to scare
us* but that would be about all. What
I noticed most however, v/tiou L got in
side the forts, were .some poor Chinamen who had been chain*.."! to the guns
-the real gnu:-—so that tttoy should not
be able to run away. Soun; of the gun-
i.ers hnd been killed by our artille-y
filO and others wounded. The1 BUrvlv-
ots, I am sure, were better treated by
thc conquerors than they had been by
their own people. We were very inerci
ful to the poor fellows.
When we had done ouv work at Taku
Forts we pushed ahead to get the war
linished. Not very far away was the
famous Summer Palace, a gorgeous
building which was supposed to contain
untold riches. Our commander-in-chief
had made it known that unless the enemy ugreed to his conditions the palace
would lie destroyed.
He had - told them that twenty-six
liritish subjects had been seized and
half of them had been done to death in
the most barbarous manner. Ue insisted upon the survivors being restored at
once, and as the Chinese did not agree
to his demands he set Out to keep his
word—and he kept it, for he ordered the
palace to be burnt, In that famous
event the French took a leading part,
1 think; at any rate they went mostly
for the loot, and there were somo wonderful hauls of gold and silver goods
and precious silks.    Of course, a private

Still there was no suspicious noise of

At last I walked in boldly and looked
around; then I felt as if my heart had
stopped, for, ou the earthern floor,
stretched at my feet, was the form of
a French sergeant—a tine figure uf u
man he was, too.
I would have bent down, but there
was a nameless something in the figure
which told of death. 1 seemed to be
rooted to tlie ground with horror, and
had that overwhelming fear which comes
to one in nightmare. I was totally un

defending myself against the attack of

a sort of yard or compound, and there 1
heard stealthy noises which told of
Chinamen  in hiding.
1 can tell you, the sound did not make
me feel very joyful. I knew too well
what falling into Chinese hands meant.
A pig tailed head bobbed up from
behind a wall, and a stolid Chinese face i
stared at me, but there was the gleam j'»"y
of murder in the little almond eyes, and
I knew that tlie Celestial hand gripped
a sword or knife. I had nothing what

1 had not left the French sergeant in

him a little pocket book, with a silver
pencil, and was anxious that his people
should have it. So 1 hurried off, coat

of things of that sort, but oven we wore
able to appreciate the marvellous beauty of some of the things that wore
taken. It was pitiful to seo such a
splendid place put to the fire; but I
suppose it was the only way of bringing the Chinese to their senses.
I remember the palace well, but not
so vividly as I cull to mind the place
which we spoke of as the "Temple of
Horrors," a building which was full of
models, mostly of clay, of human creatures who were being punished with all
the cruelty for which the Chinese were
One dreadful figure comes back to
niirnl as I talk—that of a man, firmly
bound in a chair, who had boon put
to death by having boiling lead poured
down his throat. The thing was so
shocking anil so real that it was hard
to believe that the model was not actual
flesh and blood.
Then there were other figures, the
sight of which was sickening, and many
or which gave us clearly to understand
what the sull'erings hail boon of those
British prisoners who were restored to
us, aud what awful things we ourselves
had escaped by not falling into the
hands of the Chinamen. That was the
one thing which most of us were careful
not to do—fall into the enemy's hands
as prisoners, for to do that, as 1 have
said, was worse than death.
Looking back on the war and that
famous storming, 1 fine! that the incident in it which is most firmly impressed
on my memory, and which [ dwell on
now, is my adventure in the village of
Pehtang and my discovery of a missing
French sergeant of the line.
Our convoy had gone astray, anil we
were baillv pressed ior food. Like my
comrades, 1 was a hungry, tattered soldier, and wanted something to eat and
drink—especially to eat. There was a
good deal of talk just then about loot,
but the only loot I craved for was
something iu the shape of Chinese pork
or fowl. My mind did nol, dwell overmuch on Chinese gods or Chinese art.
At that time 1 was a corporal, and
in my shii'f-slceves, with about, eight of
my companions, I wandered about the
village in search of food, and perhaps a
pair of boots. I particularly

T made my way into one of the little
miserable houses of the village, a sort
of mud hut, walking very stealthily and
carefully, because although we had dc
feate.d the Chinese, there were still a
gooel many of them lurking about in
strange and unexpected quarters.    Y'ou
fleers were assembled. They soon understood my mission, and the bugle was
sounded and tho sergeant's company
was paraded, for the little book contained the names of iiis men, and the
otlieers wished to learn if any more
were  missing.
They were all reported present nnd
correct—except the poor sergeant, who

Then a whistle sounded, the last

To the wilderness  1   wander.
—Tom  O'Bedlam 'w  Song.
Paul Xocquet, native of France, but
citizen of America, had three piece0 of
sculpture upon view at the exhibition
the Society of American Artists,
Xew York, in tlie spring of 1900, and
he was very happy in the prospect of
winning tlie hand of a lovely PariBt-
enne of wealth, who had promised to
wed  him  as soon  as  he  should  obtain,
along Ihe aerial highways. So, in th
spring of litOS. there appears in Berkeley, California, .lohn A. Morrell, ambitious to share the glory that history
must mete out io those who finally
effect a commercial conquest of the air.
i)n May 23 hordes of curious people
from the great city of the Golden Gate
descended upon Berkeley and found the!
new   leviathan    tossing   and   rolling,   a
beautiful    vessel   with   wondrous   body'
stretching more than one hundred feet
over the sward.    From among the thou-'
sands   pressing   around   the   great   car, j
seventeen were finally selected to share
the  thrills  of  the  mad  dash   into  space,
and   Morrell   was   lo   lie   tin'   eighteenth.
So eager, indeed, were scores of!
others to go aloft that the inventor had}
to deal harshly with many who begged |
to make the ascent. Boys as well as
men pleaded to be taken in, and most
persistent among the troublesome ones
was Captain I "enfold, an Australian
aeronaut. Indeed, this veteran of the
air went so far as in oiler the engineer
fifty dollars if lie would but smuggle
him aboard. Finally, when this bribe
was refused, the persistent Ponfold
took a last chance aiol played the stow
away, clambering inlo the. netting when
the engineer's back was turned and
wrapping himself in folds of canvas up
mi the mattrossed bottom of tie- car.
Rival photographers alsn wrangled
over privileges io make tho ascent, and
two were finally stationed mi tin- tor
ward netting1, where they made elnbor
ate preparations to take views of the
distant eartli. Hut thon if vvns found
lhal to., much of a load pressed down
the bow ni the ship, and no vera I dia
appointed passengers had to bo pushed
mit. This left olghteon, couuting the
stowaway, uud Morrell himself made
the nineteenth.
Then enmo the command t.. cut awaj
lhe eords, and the colossus lurched up
grandstand ami scat-
it   the   track   had   grown   im

had paid their money.    Th.' skip-

into the airy billows, fnr he felt
■  responsibility of pleasing the
OW(l rested upon him.
So at  length, when there fell a calm.
gave  the signal   which   released  tin;
big craft, and,  waving  farewell  to the
Cbcorillg  multitude,   he  slowly  ascended
to an altitude of some live hundred feet.
When   this  point   was  reached   some  of
the   aeronaut's   helpers   noticed   with
alarm   what   tin*   untrained   eves  of the
! populace failed to comprehend.    A little
i linger   of   flame   was   issuing   from   the
engine toward the gas-bag, just above,
ami threatening to explode thu balloon.
Cries went  up from there friends upon the ground, but their warnings were
, unheard   by   the   aeronaut.     Then   more
; and  more  people  in  toe crowd  realized
what    was   happening,   and    lent   their
I voices to the chorus of warning shouts.
At last  the ligure upon  the  .rame of
"The Boomerang" seemed to hear, although  he was  five hundred  feet above
the   mouths  that   shouted   at   him.     lie
glanced quickly behind him and, seeing
that  his ship was doomed  and  his life
in  grave sl   peril,  began  creeping along
I the railing of the framework, iu retreat
i from   the   impending  holocaust.     .Mean

We heard a spirit knocking,
"My wife," he said, "I'll bet!
Suw, isn't she a wonder*
Hear that!    She's knocking yet!"
This story  lias a  moral,
Xow.  mark  the  lesson  well.
That hubby's wife in hubby's life
Made just a little—pandemonium.
If   hubby   had   known   better
How to treat an angry wife,
He'd  invested iu  some BUCK-EYES
And have had a happy life.
P. S.-When your wife is knocking, buy a BUCK-EYE. Its
fragrant aroma will turn her displeasure into a peaceful,
happy calm.
Mrs. J. It. Flock, of London, Ont,
for years received the best medical
attention that Canada afforded.
Her husband was a prominent physician, yet his .skill and that of his
colleagues:, was of no avail in helping
Mrs. Flock.
She writes, "I was a constant mar-
btyr to Stomach Weakness all my life
and no physician could cure me, but
•Fruit-a-tives* gave me entire relief
and I cordially recommend this fam-
ou.s fruit medicine to the public."
"Fruit-a-tives" corrects all disorders of digestion, and is a positive
and speedy cure for Indigestion, Dyspepsia and Constipation.
"Fruit-a-tlves" are sold by all dealers at DOc a box, 6 for $2.50,..or trial

TIIE present style of dre^s makes it possible, indeed obligatory, to have an unusual number of outside garments
or separate wraps, and not only is there a jacket for
the simple street costume, but also afternoon and evening
wraps galore. Discussed ami rediscussed is the question of
the leligth of the eoat. Shall it be long or short, tight or
loose, simple or elaborate? And alas! no definite eonelusion
is arrived at, so that after ordering a long, loose coat it is
to say tlie least disconeerting to be told that the short and
much more tightly fitting jacket is far tlie smartest of all.
There being no rule commanding ail gowns made alike, it is
perhaps a wise plan to have the different styles for the different costumes, hut there are many women who prefer to keep
the leading shops display a remarkable assortment of satin
cloaks and there are always to be discovered some bargains
among them, but a striking color and good lines hide serious
defects and money is ofreu literally thrown away in the pur
chase of an effective satin cape that after being worn two
or three times will look hopelessly shabby.

A FEW weeks ago the Terra Xova left her berth in the
Thames bound for the Antarctic. hne carries the majority of those who are to accompany ..'aptain Scott in
his endeavor to reach the South Pole. Captain Scott rightly
counts himself leader of the most thoroughly organized expedition in the history of Polar exploration. Given the man,
the expedition will not only be the most thoroughly organized
but also the most determined that lias ever set out.
Captain Robert Falcon Scott is a man of keen sentiment
and  enormous  enthusiasms,  but   thev  are  hidden   below  the
surface of a very placid and unconcerned demeanor.   The traditions of the naval service on the one hand nnd of tlie great
explorers  on the other  inspire  him.    Clean-shaven, with  al
strong  and   determined   fnee.  tight   Jirm   lips,  und   ke**n   but I
kindly  light-blue eyes,  he  is  nearly  forty-two years of age,!
and it was his birthday on June -ti, though lie may have forgot-
ten the circumstance.    Ile has more to think of now that the-
slow or quick passing of his own years.    lie was thirty-three I
when he first set out towards the South Pole in the wnnd irfnl j
lmt too expensive and  not  mer satisfactory  Discovery, nil
which he made the great expedition which penetrated farthest .
south for the time being.
As a good captain  lie liked the  Discovery, despite her ]
faults, and if sentiment   had been .given  full opportunity  be
mighl have taken her with him this time.   By a curious coincidence Bhe was in the docks for some time within hailing dis- i
tance of the Terra   Nova,  being in the service of the  Mud-i
son's Hay Company, to whom she was sold wben she had done
her work iu the Antarctic.    Bill  now the commander is quite
in love with his Terra Nova, which he thinks tlie best ship in
the world for her purpose,
The first lime lie ever saw her he resented lor appear
iiiice. He was out in the lonely Antarctic then, cut oil from
the world, It was on a sunny morning in January --ix years
ago. the Discovery was fast in tur ice. and her situation, and
indeed that of the whole expedition, was a little serious. The
Government had guessed this, and had sent this old but eare-
flilly chosen whaling vessel racing through the Mediterranean
ami Suez ''anal, tugged along at top speed by cruisers and
more cruisers until, with the other relief ship, the Morning,
she came up to the edge of the Antarctic ice pack. Captain
Scott ami some of his companions were discussing after
breakfust their plans for the day. when suddenly they saw
a ship. Then Wilson exclaimed. "Why. there's another!'"
and there was the Terra Nova. The sight meant safety and

Ober-Ainmei'gau Passion Play.
Ober-Aininei-gau is a village
in tbe Barbarian Alps in the
south of Germany. In these
secluded .-mil romantic surroundings, unci- in every ten
years the simple villagers act
the Passion Play, a witness to
themselves and before tbe
world of their Christian faith,
an act of piety and thankfulness
for  their  redemption. This
Passion Play will be presented
in llosmer on Sunday next ,-it
eS:'i0 p. in. in the opera house.
As an additional reason why
the people of llosmer should
attend, it nitty he mentioned
that the play is being acted this
year. The tirst performance
was on May Kith last. There
were seven performances in
.July, nine in August and five
in September. The demand for
seats has been so great that the
number of performances has
been almost doubled. Charles
Clark, of Coleman, will operate
the cinematograph and has obtained the films at heavy expense. The Rev. A. B.N. Crowther will explain the pictures.
First will be shown photographic slides of Ober-Ammer-
gau and the district, photographs of the leading characters and various tableaux of the
play and of old testament
scenes which are also acted.
Then in moving pictures will be
given '-The Birth and Childhood
of Our Lord."    In   the  interval
