ingly iuvited to "hit it," courageously
declined, although he made a minute

Ai a gi.it many ol in In B. 0. have
com. Irom th. old country, th. house-to-
house delivery ot mail is nothing new to
tu, I suppose that Canada wu repre-
wnted .t the poit.l convention held in
Vienna in 1801, and signed the agreement that .11 countries belonging to the
Unlvernl Poital Union, would eatablish
a univerul delivery oi mail.
Now whit hu Canada done in bringing
thil into lorce? Certainly Canada hae
given th. Urge citiei free delivery, but
no greater piece ol clan legislation was
aver enacted thin to give luge citiei the
right to have • In. delivery ol mail and
not the rur.l diitricti.
Why, lor instance, ihould Vancouver
and Victoria hive a .free delivery ind
•uch plicei u New Westminster, Naniimo, Bevelatoke, etc., be denied the
■•me delivery? Do the people in these
two Urge citiei pay any more taiei,
proportionately, thin the people in tbe
rural diitricti? No, they do not 1 It ii •
gnat piece ot unjust discrimination
againit the rural diitricti. The II. 8. A
have recogoiaed the great injustice tbat
they h.v. done to the rural diitricti,
and they are now establishing the tree
delivery ai lut as they can. Uncle Sam
would not have given tbla free delivery
without he i.w that it wai going to be
profitable. In thoie diitricti where tbe
free delivery hu been pat into operation
builnen hu increased 40 per cent.
Not only hn rural Iree delivery come
to itay with Uncle Sam, bnt it is now
pert oi th. permanent force of tbe
poit.l lervice; and lb. service now
comes under the civil lervice law,
Why ihould not Canada have • rur.l
Ira. delivery ai well u the States? We
all know how sparsely Canada ia populated, bnt il there li anything that will
Mad to keep the population in the
country, the iree delivery li one ol tbe
way. ol doing it,
Tbii Iree delivery bring! the city ind
country closer together; it wonld bind
them witb fre.li tin, u tbe country
people would know that under thia
■yitem they would get tbtir mall brought
to them diily. Again, tbla would en-
tall better roidi; roidi would have to
be k.pt in good repair, lo th.t tii. mail
carti could get along; more intereit
wonld be taken by the rural population
ln thil matter as it would in greatly to
their benefit; they would ice tbat the
money was spent wisely and well.
I shall have much pleamre, in another
latter, in showing some interesting facta
and figure! to prove the contention!
here laid down.

been shipped from the mine and the

of Vancouver Island, The writer, Mr.

condition of this important industry.
Maps of tho district are produced in connection with the article. As the Engineering and Mining Journal in tbe
leading technical paper of its kind on

Than the stars of diadems.
Onward, onward may we press
Through tbe path ul duty;
Virtue is true happiness,
Excellence true beauty.

How to Make Water mitl Claret Ux-
elianffc (; Ins nen.
Here Is a trick that Is always effective, and, wlillo It Is very simple Indeed,
still it is. hound to appeal' just a weo bit
mysterious, and many, especially your
little brothers nml slaters, will bo unablo
to explain It,
Take two ordinary claret glusses, PHI
ono to tho brim with clnrot and the other
equally full with clear water. Cover tho
top of tho glass containing water with an
ordinary visiting card so thnt there nro
no places around thu edge uncovered by
tho card. Turn tho glass upside down
and place It ou the top of the glass containing claret and adjust tho glasses so
that their edges meet exactly nil tho way
around. Now move the ami slightly to
ono side so lhat there will be a littio
spneo at one side of the glasses Inside uncovered by tlio card. At onco a thin
.stream of claret; will begin to rise
through this space, not mixing with tlio
water at all, but with Its edges clear aud
sharply defined. Tho water, too, will begin to descend Into the glass containing
claret, a pure, glistening white stream
against the ruddy red. Tho stream of
claret, too, rising through tho sparkling
White of tho water, presents a beautiful
effect, anil In a moment the clni-ct Mill
begin to spread about the top of the upper gluss like tha unfolding of n red rose,
nuil tho wilier will spread Iu tho bottom
of the lower glass. Tho two llulds contrast of red aud white, with sharply do- '
fined edges.
In a very short time tho claret and '
water will have changed places, the clar- /
ct being in the upper glass and the water
iu the lower. This Is duo to the differ-
' enee In weight of (bo liquids. Tho water, being tho heavier, forces Itself into
tho lower glass, and n portion of tlio
claret Is moved up to take the place of
tho descending water.

When Lt Wai A Hoy.
It Is totd of Ll Hung Chang, tho great
Chineso Btatcsman, that when n boy he
Waa very strong mid tall for his years.
As Is the custom among the wealthier of

which meant that the wearer is an otltelat

In committing the 40,000 verses that nro
required of Chineso scholars. Ho was
nearly always at the head of bis class.
After completing tho lower studies Ll,
at tho ago of seventeen, took, together
with hundreds of other boys, the public
examination at the capital of the province In which ho made bis home. Public
officers were there to sec thnt no dishonest work would be done by tho pupils. At
the tiring of a cannon the boys gathered
In the halls, where for several days they
wero tested tu the writing of poems and
essays. Ll was among the very few who
passed. From there soon afterward he
went to Peking to be tested for it higher
rank, and again he camo off with honors.
When he is heard of again, It is nt tho

academy nt Peking, and thus he continued in life, winning oue victory after another. '	
Elephant Iicnrns Addition.
Tbo intelligence displayed by on elephant has been a source of much amusement to tho officers nt one of tho English army posts In India. Tho huge animal was accustomed to receiving peonies, which It would drop Into n slot for
n biscuit. If given a halfpenny, tho elephant would throw It back contemptuously, hut one day n hoy gave It two ;
halfpennies nt the snmo tlmo. For sev- i
eral minutes tho animal held them In his
trunk, ns though pondering over their
value. At Inst ho dropped tho two to-.
Uether Into tho slot, with tlio result that i
bo got the biscuit. He appeared to know -
tbat ho had mado nn unusual discovery :
and frisked nroutnl In the greatest tic-
llghti To tho onlookers It alumni seemed
ns though tho principle of addition had

There la n dispute nbout n certain
fentut'G of tho Yale-Harvard football
game back in 189— tbat Is no nearer a
settlement than It was nn hour after
tho game was finished. All tho men
who wero ongaged in it havo left college long ago, but tho matter has boon
handed down to the Undergraduates
nnd serves for a subject of perpetual
wrangling. The trouble was thnt In
those days they played tho game too
Into in the day, nud before It could bo
finished It wns so dark ono could
scarcely distinguish ono side (rom tho
Tho dispute In question could not
hifve arisen except for this cause. Tbe
game was played on Thanksgiving
dny, very nearly the shortest In the
year. This particular Thanksgiving
wns cloudy; consequently the darkness camo on curlier than usual.
Tho way of It was this: Bannnrd
was tho center rush for Ynle, and it
wasn't known till tho game began that
he wns suffering from somo heart complication, probably brought on at practice tho day before, when ho suddenly
fainted after n hnrd Bcrlnunngo. His
doctor forbudo bis going into tho
Thanksgiving game, but ho was loynl
to his college, nnd bo know it would
lose without him. At nny rntc, there
wns it consultation on Thanksgiving
eve, and when the boys appeared from
behind locked doors it was announced
that there had been a mistake nbout
Bannard's lionrt trouble and ho would
take his place In the team next dny.
Everything wont straight enough till
near the end of tbo first half. Bannnrd
shouldered tho principal work, as bo
had always done, and Yale had scored
more points thnn Harvard, but toward
tho end of the half Bannnrd began
to look queer and let Sampson of
Harvard right pnst blm with tho ball,
thereby losing a touchdown. Sampson
kicked tho goal and tied tho gume.
After the next lineup Banuard during
a scrlmningo fell over In a faint, nnd
that let Harvard In for another touchdown and n goal. Bannnrd wns carried oil the field.
Well, It began to get dark, but was
not so dark when tho men lined up
again but that I could see Bnmiord In
position. But somehow ho looked tall-:
er tliau usual, and (hero was a peculiar
motion about him that I had never noticed before. After a half hour of tho
second half all ono could see of tho
players was n'lot of dark figures on a
dark ground, Bannard's tall frame
loomed up above the rest like the specter of the Bracken. Great guns, how
he did play! Ho was ot the front, nt
tho flunk, In every scrimmage. In
short, ho wns carrying tho game far
better than he had over dono before.
Then camo that celebrated run In
which he dodged six men and, unguarded, carried the ball over the lino twenty
yards In front of his nearest follower
for a touchdown. 1 watched to see him
kick his goal, aud what was my surprise to see another mnn do It for him.
1 asked what It meant and was told
that he had gone under again.
Tho game now was lied. When the
men lined up again, I watched for
Bannnrd. Sure enough, ho was there,
nud after the klckoit did tho same astonishing work ns before. He scored
two touchdowns, but by this time ft.
wns so dark that I could not seo who
kicked tbein, However, they both fall-'
ed, on account of the darkness, 1 suppose, leaving Yale ahead In the game.,
Before any more points could be;
scored Bannnrd suddenly disappeared ,
from the Held, and a substitute appear- j
cd In his place, a slow, bungling fellow, |
who lost for his college enough points j
to put Harvard again even with Yule.
There remained but five minutes of
the three-quarters of nn hour allowed '
for tho half. At tho klckoff Bannnrd, ■
who was In bis place, jumped fully Ion
feet, caught the ball and ran witb It
straight through tlio Harvard linos.      |

could havo got through that lino as it!

family, never spoken of—who returned
just before tho game, and It was agreed
beforehand that If Arcblo Banuard

his place. This Is tho explanation of
some Harvard men, but I have met
ono man of their team, a superstitious
sort of fellow, who declares that Bau*
