COMMUNICATIONS
TROOP  MAY BK  SUSPENDED
To the  Editor of the Mail-Herald,
Kevelstoke, B. U.
Sir.—I have been asked to draw attention to the apparent indifference
of Revelstoke parents to au organisation that is doing much to help
their boys in life.
For the inspection of Revelstoke
Hoy Scouts on June 2fc, au invitation
had been extended to all parents and
trionds. The troop represents some
70 families—less than ten parents
were present.
The ollicers of the organization are
honorary workers, giving up a great
deal of their recreation time, and
unselfishly devoting it to the good
of tho boys and their country. Our
scout officers do not. ask for praise
or thanks, hut they expect, that the
jarents of the boys they are devot-
iiiL' their time to, should show some
practical interest and appreciation In
the  work.
If the Revelstoke parents continue
to show such apathy and indifference
in what interests and helps their
1 oys, they will only have themselves
to blame if we arc forced to suspend
the troop owing to want of a scoutmaster and an assistant, scout-
master.

THE CEMETERY
To the Editor, Mail Herald,
Sir,—Kindly allow me space in your
paper to pass a few remarks upon
condition  of our .cemetery.
Un visiting tho cemetery, Monday
night, I found conditions to be a
disgrace to our city, everywhere hay
aud weeds and in one part a potato
field, this 1 consider a disgrace and
disrespect to the dead. Has the party
or iiarties who planted the potatoes
the consent of our mayor and council, or if not, is our city council that
busy so i lay are not aware of the
conditions of the cemetery or is it
that in their struggle for economy
they have lost sight of the fact that
taking it from a standpoint of
decency our cemetery is a disgrace
i nd taking from a business point,
equally is bad? It would be a fine
place te. take a stranger or tourist.
Hoping . ur mayi r and council will
look Into this  matter speedily     and
hanking you Mr. Editor for space.

Thc Creston board of trade has always advocated that in case

to operate a train service
the government should expropriate the right of way and rebuild it
into a vehicular highway to connect

thing is to be accomplished double-
quick action will have to be taken.
If the railway takes out all the

Silver Cup Dumps
Profitable to Work
Ferguson, B.C., July 20.—Considerable activity prevails at the old
Silver Cup mine this summer. The
leaser, S. Cavanaugh, has a small
force working with one car of high
grade ore on its way to the smelter
and another ready to ship. The company has installed jigs on the old
dumps, which according to reports
are a great success. In the slimes are
found a large quantity of gold and
silver in a metallic form. Expire-
ments have proved that all the
dumps can be treated at a big profit.
Valleys Around Revelstoke
Surprise to Bury
"I have no reason whatever to
change my mind from the interview
I gave out in Winnipeg last Monday
'norning," said George Bury, vice-
president and general manager of the
Canadian Pacific railway in an interview in Vancouver. "During all
of the tr.p we had a report from
every agent whose territory we were
in, In addition to that we had samples of tiie crop taken and which were
dispatched each day to Winnipeg for
analysis, and the reports so far have
been up to  my expectations."
Referring to British Columbia, Mr.
Bury said that while the province
has great wealth in timber, mines
and fisheries, the greatest wealth after all lies In the very valleys that
he passed through. At Revelstoke, he
said, the party was taken in automobiles uj> the side of Mount Revelstoke and he saw there for the first
; init; the great valleys that surround
that place, every one of which con-
tafna untold wealth in the soil. He
said while there he was thinking of
one of A. sup's fables which relates
I al "'ice upi n a time a man and
: is family worked for several years
: gold "at of a mine and the
dirt thoy took out so enriched their
lind holdings that they became not
rich but famous by planting the
soil.
Canadian Soldiers
Marrying in Scores
Canada's onrush to the fighting
ime as the answer of the empire's call
has left its mark not alone on the
Germans, hut has been felt all over
England, and particularly in London.
London girls are being carried off
as wives by the hundreds by these
stalwart sons of the west, who have
come from the new world to redress
the wrongs of the old.
At one hotel which is just removed
from the centre of gaiety in the city,
and whicli has been popular with the
men of Canada, who have come to
Loudon on leave, 14 of the waitresses have given up their places during
the past six months, and in each
case the reason was the same. Each
one of the girls  married a Canadian.
In the Lyons restaurants, which
dot tbe whole city of London, havoc
has been caused by the Canadian on-
Hish, and some of these places are
limning short-handed now as a result.
Got  Mother Enthused.
London cannot understand the
causes which lead to this remarkable
state of affairs—that is, the majority of Londoners cannot; but there is
one who has told the writer all
about it, and she at least believes
she knows. This is Mrs. L. Goddard,
who lived with her four daughters in
a cosy little Bat just oil Leicester
square. Three of her daughters have
married Canadians, and the fourth is
engaired to be married to another
man  of that contingent.
Mrs. Goddard told about the quick
romances which had culminated in
this epidemic of matrimony, while
ber face was wreathed  in smiles.
"I am sure they will all be happy,'
iho said,  'and if    I    were   a younger
woman there Bhould be five in tta
family and not four. You see, th^
are so different from our men. Thay
are not ashamed to love a girl and
to tell her so, and tbey are all gentlemen. I love them all myself, so I
know why my daughters love them,
and they all have been married with
my consent."
What the Sergeant Did.
There is humor, too, in some ot
the rapid marriagcB that have liecs
arranged. Take, for instance, tie
ease of a Canadian sergeant, wbo>
met in London one of two sister*
who were alone in thc world and lived together. The girl loved him, and
he spent all his hours out. of camp
in trying to get her to bo marriegd.
But she would not leave her lill.lw
sister alone in the world even to
have her Prince Charming. Then the
sergeant cut the Cordinn knot with
characteristic directness.
Always when he called at the house
of his sweetheart he would have with
him a companion ir arms. It never
would be the same man twice. Finally ho sponsored into her home the
man tbe other sister wanted. Then
there was a double wedding.
ORIGIN OF JUNE WEDDING.
The firsl people to ndopl the month
of .lime as sacred to Hymen, the k<x1
of marriage, ware the ancient Romans
who considered June the most propitious season of the year for entering
upon    matrimonial    relations.   Tbe
Romans  hold    thai    June    weddings
| wero likely to be happier I ban alliances
j contracted in any other month of the
| year, especially if the day chosen were
thai of a full moon or the con junction
I of the sun and moon,   They also held
j that of all  months  .May was   .to be
i avoided, as in thai month newlyweds
'would come   under the   Influnce  o]
spirits adverse to   happy households.
These ancient  marriage superstitions
were retained bj the Christians in the
middle Oges,  and  even   In-day  June
i is considered by many to lie pre-emin-
lately the month of marriage.—New
; Orleans States.
Between the reservists and volunteers Fernie claims to have raised
close to 400 men I u overseas service.
Strawberry shipments from K.-mlo
does not appear to be ns large this
season as previously, this being due
to the fact that several appear to
havc become a little discouraged with
the strawberry  fame.

Notes from the cTHines
Rossland mines shipped 28,896 tons
of ore to the Trail smelter in April,
which is an increase of 6,000 tons
over the same month last year.
Tho road to the Skyline, above tbe
No. 1, at Ainsworth, ie being cleaned out. It is said that A.W. McCune,
the owner of the property, intends
to commence tbe driving of a long
tunnel on the Skyline this summer.
The first product from the Standard test mill at Silverton has been
satisfactory. If the separation can
be economically done in a large'
smeltery, the results would be high-j
ly beneficial to the Slocan, where
many of the now idle mines would
become producers. ,

When the Standard started shipping to Trail, the amount of concentrates ou hand is said to have been

a value of $200,000.
The work of gravelling the road between Zwicky and the Cork-Province

grade ore thnt was ever taken ofl
Nino Mile mountain.—Ominecu Herald.
A, company has opened offices in
Vancouver the purpose of which is
to dredge for gold on the Fraser,
river below Hope. Attempts have,
been made nt different times to work
dredges on the lower Fraser,, but they
failed to obtain profitable results
with the exception of a dredge that
was opernted at Ynle for a few
months. Tho reason fnr this failure
was the unsuitable tyjns of dredge*
used, and their operation on gravel
which did nnt carry pny dirt. Kmln
mt engineers, who hnve Investigated

With the incentive of tbe high price
of copper, the Granby Consolidated
company now is forcing its big reduction works at Grand Forks to
lopnotch speed. A daily treatment
average of nearly 3a 0 tons of ore
was maintained by the eight furnacts
at the smelter during June. This
rivals, if not exceeds, the operations
of the smelter in the palmy days in
1912. The ore shipments from thc
Granby mines at Phoenix to the
.smelter here also are touching the
old records. During June 103,004 tons
were shipped, as compared with 10C,-
698 in May and ->5,3S2 in April. Shipments for the first six months of the
year total 464,32?  tons.
The last shipment of s.enie 34 tons
of ore from the Union mine, in
Gloucester camp, ran about $80, according to returns from the smelter
recently received by the manager,
Lewis Johnson. The ore netted about
$5.1 a ton, and as the teaming of tbe
ore to Lynch Creek, the transporta-
ti'ni to Granby smelter charges agio egiite about $25 a t.en, the actual
valuis of tbe ore were $80. When
early shipments were made from the
Union the ore ran about this figure,
but when extensive shipments were
made from the "dump" last summer
it was found that the general run ol

transportation charges. However, Mr.

DEVICES TO
DRAW RECRUITS
Young Britisher Confronted By
Every Form of Appeal-
Girls Also Urge Them
Many and various are the ways in
which Great Britain is securing men
for her army. The lot of the youth
who has not donned the khaki is not
an easy one. He is attacked by pretty women and plain women, old women and young idrls, who one aud all
question him as to why he has uot
joined the colors. His eyes are assailed by pleading or peremptory
posters and his ears with the drone
of the bagpipes or tbe lilt of the
horns as the recruiting bands march
through the streets.
These bands collect how and where
they can. They are to be seen all over London marching stolidly along,
while little groups of men and beardless lads follow them and are finally
piped off t i tbe recruiting stations
with never a word spoken. The would-
be soldier merely falls in, and the
next thing he knows he is being examined and questioned by army in-
sjiectors. If he passes the requirements he speedily becomes a khaki-
clad soldier and buckles down to
hard work.
The most interesting feature of thc
new recruiting campaign is the number and variety of the posters. They
change from week to week, almost
from day to day. About 2'0 designers
and writers are at work upon them
in London alone.
The London of gay theatrical and
other advertising posters is a thing
of the past. Almost all the available
space is used for recruiting bills, and
of these there are large posters for
fences, and small ones for shop windows, and particularly brief ones for
taxis, busses and motor vans.
Picture Posters Successful.
The tersest one is the "Join Now!"
in reed, white and blue, which adorns
many a cab, but some taxi drivers
prefer the questions, "When Are You
Going9" or "What About You?" or,
again, the advice, i "Rally Round tbe
Flag," while one driver bas "No
Kbaki, No Kisses."
The picture posters are the most
successful in bringing recruits, tbe
designers say, and, indeed, some of
these are really stirring, as, for example, that fine group by Frank
Brangwyn, which has been so widely
reproduced—the stalwart Briton surrounded by weeping women and children.
The Nelson monument at Trafalgar
Square has its four lions holding up
four reproductions of the same highly-colored picture, a soldier and a
workman grasping hands, while underneath is inscribed "Fill Up the
Ranks, Pile Up the Munitions," and
above, "We Are Both Needed to
Serve the Country."
A poster much seen is a Gibsones-
que father with a child on each knee,
their faces turned up to his as they
ask, "Father, what did you do in the
great war7" Another variety of this
idea is a Boy Scout,making the same
embarrassing enquiry of a handsome
but harassed-looking gentleman.
There is generally a group gathered
around the, picture which shows a
house struck by a bomb and a woman
with a child at ber skirt and a babe
in her arms in the foreground, and
the query, "Men of Britain, Will You
Stand Thi6?"
Two pretty women are in the foreground of another poster, while a
line of soldiers can be seen through a
window and a notice underneath reads
"The Women of Enrland Say Go!1"
A group of marching soldiers is
watched by a crowd, and on the in-
-crijition you road, "Join the Ranks,
Don't Stand in the Crowd."
A map showing Calais, Ypres, etc.,
says, "Come Over Here. You're
Wanted." And the same injunction is
used in connection with tbe illustration of a soldi'!' shading his eyes and
looking as though for his comrades.
"If the Caps Fits Wear It" is
written across a large khaki caj). and
"Surely You Will Fight For King
and Country" has a map of England
and a portrait of King George in
place of the works, "King and Country."
Busses Are Helping
A distinct failure in recruiting poster art is the one which shows a
large and sulky lion with Borne cubs
and the declaration that the "Old
Lion Helped By the Young Lions Will
Win," this is badly drawn and colored
and without any appeal, yet for
Some reason or other it hns outstayed some of its betters.
A highly tinted portrait of Lord
Huberts bears underneath the words.
"He Did His Duty; Are You Doing
Yours'"' and a pictured group of different tyjies of mon announces that
"Every Fit Man Bhould Fight."
The omnibuses which pass recruit'
tug stations hnve recently admonish-
• e| the jiiiblic to "Follow This Uus to
the Front," and tbe whole side   of a
fence on the Kingsway was covered
with this demand in read, white and
blue lettering: "John! More Men Are
Needed at Once!" and again, "If You
Can't Join the Army Get a RccruiblT
Otber spaces display these sentences: "Each Recruit Means Quicker
Peace For England; Join To-day!"
"Halt! Go Into the Army., Help the
Boys at the Front." "Fight For
Freedom With the Strength of Free
.Men." "Young Men Wanted. Apply
at the Recruiting Otlices." "Britons,
Your Country Needs You!" You
Think a Lot of Your Pals at the
Front, But What Do Your Pals Think
of You?" and "Will You Not Help
Your Country in Her Hour of Need?"
The entire third floor of tbe Carlton Hotel bears quotations from
English heroes printed in huge letters
on boarding. On the Pall Mall side
>oii read: 'England Expects Every
Man This Day To Do His Duty" and
"No Price Can Be Too High When
Honor and Glory Are at Stake," and
on the Hayrnarket side, "Who Dies
While Kngland Lives?" and "He Gives Freely Who (lives First."
Not many people stop to read the
long quotations from the inquest on !
the Lusitania victims, which is placed all over London to rouse indignation. It is too involved and too long,
and Lord Kitchener's letter calling
for more men suffers from the same
fault for recruiting purposes.—New .

Recent experience in the United
States illustrates the force of economic motives. For several years, efforts were made in that country to
secure federal protection for migratory game birds. The campaign was
chiefly an appeal to sentiment and
made little headway. The proposal
was then extended to include insecti-
vorous birds, wide publicity was given to the fact that insect pests damaged crops annually to the extent of
hundreds of millions of dollars, and
within one year a popular demand,
that years of sentimental appeal had
failed to arouse, forced congress to
pass a law placing all migratory
birds under federal control. The preservation of wild life achieved the
status of a national business enterprise.
Canada's wild life is as valuable as
that of the United States. To pro-
serve it as a national asset we need
not pursue the method adopted by
our American neighbors, but we do
require to gain their sane viewpoint.

PRESERVATION
OF WILD LIFE
An Economic. Not a Sentimental
Issue Involved in Bird Piotection
The popular impression in Canada
that the preservation of wild life is
merely a desirability, not a positive
. necessity—is fatally false and is re-
' sponsible for the serious inroads already suffered by our game resources
| Public opinion has been powerless to
check destruction and will remain so
r.B long as the campaign for wild life
protection depends upon an appeal to
sentiment for its dynamic force. No
conservation issue can progress far
on that basis. The people of this continent move most resolutely in response to economic motives, and tbe
necessary prelude to proper protection of wild life in Canada is     wider

If you draw a parallel between the
mind and the daily newspaper you
will see. The capacity of the mind to
leceivc impressions may be increased
ly attention, but it is nevertheless
limited, and when the number of impressions presenting themselves greatly exceeds that limit, the mind must
j.ick and choose. It unconsciously
adopts a new scale of values. Everything is relative. Impressions that
would have been very interesting and
welcome at one time are excluded

mterestinz and important take their

two eer four paces on a' hie news

REAL SIBERIA
RICH COUNTRY
Was Made Great Progress in
Last Few Decades —
Best to Come
Not very long ago tlie pojmlur idea
ef Siberia was tbat it was a vast
snow-covered waste, and that tbe
.tracks across its lonely and frigid ex-
i anse were marked by the bones of
convicts and exiles wbo died ou tbeir
way to the living death of the dis-
> -mt prisons.
Jn  reality   .Siberia    is a very different place from that generally imagined—-it is a vast granary, a great timber region,  a country   rich in     gold
■ nd  other  metals  and  minerals.      In
ne  particular  the  pi [Hilar  idea     is
;orrect—the vastness of Siberia.     It
is half a continent rather    than     a
iountry,  comprising as it does     the
vh.eie hinterland '»f Asia.    It is    a
vast  zone,  with an    area     half     as
irge again as that '>r    Europe    or
Canada, ami a population little more

The Real Siberia.
The real  Siberia is  in     many     rejects  not   unlike    Canada.      In  the
south  between tbe  Urals  ami     Lake
Baikal      there    is a vast  area—some-
thing like  half a million  sijuare miles
ef splendid agricultural land,    much
■ jf which bas a very fertile     soil     in
■vhich  it   is possible   to   raise heavy
rops "f wheat ami other grain. Then
northwards is tii.' trreat forest   zone,
i belt of dense    woods nearly 2,000
miles  wide     and     stretching .   right
.  icross     Asia.     Further     north still
Siberia extends far beyond the Arctic
■IMrcle and  winter seldom relaxes   its
icy  grip,  there be.nor    no vegetation
■-ave moss and   lich.'n  on these     deflate tundras.
The story of Sibera, as we know it
day, may be said to    have     begun
with the advance of the  Cossacks of
J en ak.      the     Russian     freebooter,

ting   tn nertdous .li.-tances loaded  with chains and urged on by brut-
llerj   through the rigors of   the
-   i    ,:•. winter.     During the    nineteenth century the number of     convicts averaged 20,000 per annum, and
the sum total   >f human misery    was
ertaittly very irreat.    But with     the

T  '   IM.rly Settlers.
The Rus8lanization .ef Siberia    was
it  first  a glow  process.   Tbe  Russian
.' rnment  sent parties  of  Cossacks
si ttle on thc frontiers, and    also
lispatched nunVoers of peasants,   who
however,  bound to settle  iu aped places ami    maintain     communications.      With  these exceptions
the emigration of Russian subjects to
Siberia   was fir a    long  time forbid-
len. Despite this official prohibition,
owever, the oppression of tbe serfs,
religious persecutl in, ami the desire
ii ipe conscription, drove many
people to escape into the Siberian
Wilderness. Since the emancipation of
the serfs in im l emigration has been
steadily Increasing, the peasantry of
• whole Russian village often emigrating er, bloc. Thun while tbe Russian
government studded Siberia with
forts, the Russian peasant emigrants
rilled in the intervening spaces. The
Russian population of Siberia in 1709
.'.as only 160,000 and in l»"'.l half a
million, but in I't]'.' it was over six
•.•nillioiis or more than SO per cent, of
tbe whole  population.
Its  Wonderful  Railway.
The nerret of the remarkable progress of Siberia m recent years, and
a most Important factor iu its future
development, Is, of course, the creat
Trans Siberian railway, one of the
greatest works ever carried out by
the bands of man! To ^ay It la E,449
miles long, and cost 88 millions sterling is to give little Ml"., of the vast-
anil Importance ol i in' undertak
ear. Originally suggested i.y an
Englishman, a definite offer to build

erar, when Grand Duke Nicholas,  cut
the first sod at Vladivostok in 1891,
and within seven years railhead bad
reached from Chelyabinsk in the Urals
to Irkutsk, 3,371 miles east of Moscow. In nine years 3,375 miles of new
line had heen laid, or at the rate of
over a mile a day. The railway includes no less thun 30 miles of
bridges, some like that over the
Yenesei, over half a mile long. Lake
Baikal offered a great obstacle to
the connection of the Siberian line
with the section built westward from
Vladivostok. This break was linked
up by a huge steam ferry which car-
lied the trains across this huge inland sea and in winter broke the ice
at the same time. The railway has
now, however, been continued round
the southern end of Lake Baikal despite the difficult nature of the mountainous country. Altogether the
Trans-Siberian railway has been a
tremendous undertaking, and one that
may never be remunerative in a
commercial sense, as on account of
the immense distances and sparse
populati >n, fares anil freights have
to be very low. But it pays an indis-
pensable and very vital part in the
development ol the vast agricultural
and mineral resources ol Siberia,
Advice is Given
to Poultry Breeders
In a circular issued by the British
Columbia Poultry association is sonic
information of value to the city lot
poultry breeders and farmers who
keep fowls as a side line, regarding
the danger of marketing fertile eggs.
The circular says:
"Now tbat the breeding season is
ut an end, it is important that all
breeding males should be removed
from the pens, and either killed, sold
or isolated. It is not true that hens
1 will uot lay so well when there is
not a male present. On the contrary,
in most instances the presence of
male fowls tends to reduce the egg
yield.
"Last year, it was estimated that
over $3,000,000 was lost in the Dominion through fertile e.'gs being marketed, lt does not take a much higher temperature than 70 decrees to
ttart incubation, and this temperature is often considerably exceeded in
store windows. When fertile eggs are
exposed to this beat, it does not take
long for incubation to start. This
loss may be cut down by removing
ihe male bird. Infertile eggs may become stale and musty when exposed
to strong odors, lint they can never
. t into the condition in which fertile eggs are often found when broken by the consumer.
"There is another reason why the
nale birds should be got rid of at
the end of the breeding season, and
that is because it is expensive to
teep them three or four months before disposing of them. If marketed
i arly they should net a few cents a
pound more, and save the 50' or 6!|
cents' worth of feed which would be
needed to keep them until fall. During the hot weather eggs should be
collected at least twice daily and
store them in a cool, sweet place (an
egg shell is very porous, and egu's
will quickly take up any foul smells
or odors i. when marketing be sure
the cardboard fillers are sweet. dry
and clean, and lastly, m irket  clean.
LOeid sized. ei'L'S as often as possible."

GREAT BRITAIN'S
GREATEST HYMN
France bas     Signally     honored the
memory of the author of "Le Marseillaise," the se.n- that is sup-
l-osed to be tbe greatest expi
of a nation's soul that ever wu composed. It is a song that can thrill
audiences who have no French blood
.;. their veins, and who i.now nothing .ef the French IM ■ . It is
a wonderful outpouring of genius,
but in our idmiratlon for tin great
: itlonal My n we ought not to forget that we i. ■ ■ gre ■ f our
own. We have indeed two of the
reatesi ver written, and in
"God Save tin. King" we have music
which, according to H. E. Krehbiel,
the noted musical authority wh.j
writes in the New Yi rk TriMune, is
"the supreme example and perfect
I model of a national hymn," and one
whose melody bas been adopted by
half the civilized people of the world.
But Britons have a greater song,
: nil one which does n it fear comparison with the "M . ," generally supposed tee i the ..-reatest
tic song ever composed. This
is "Rule, Britannia."
A Wonderful Hymn.

British national character, and wrote
in overture to it, and Thomas At-
wood, one of Mozart's favorite
pupils, used the melody in a coronation anthem. "The finest national
song possessed by any nation" was
the verdict passed upon it by W.
Barclay Squire, a competent judge.
•Rule, Britannia," is tbe real national song of the British empire, for
it is Neptune's trident that iB Britain's sceptre, and a song of the sea
is the real song of the nation. Upon
August 1 an anniversary of the first
public rendering of "Rule, Britannia," will occur, for it was upon this
cay of the year 1740 that it was first
heard. Whether it made any impression upon this occasion we do not
know, but it was not long afterwards that the people had adopted
it, and from then till now it bas remained the great British war hymn.
Words by Thomson.
The occasion of its presentation
was a fete In Cliveden, Bucks, to the
l'rince eef Wales in honor of the ac-
cession of the House of Hanover to
the Uritish throne. Among other performances was presented a masque
called "Alfred," the authors of which
\.■■ : <■ Ja es Thomson, remembered
as the author of "The Seasons," and
David Mallet, a Scotchman, not remembered at all. In the course of
the play, if such it might lie called,
there was a jiiece sung by a bard.
There were six verses of it, four of
them being as follows:
When Britain tirst, at Heaven's command,
Arose from out the azure main,
Tbis was the charter of the land,
And  guardian   angels     sang     this
strain:
Rule,  Britannia, rule the waves,
Britons never  will  be slaves.
The  Nations not so blest as thee
Must   in their  turn to tyrants fall;
While thou sbalt flourish    great   and J
free.
The dread and envy of them all.
Rule. Britannia, rule the waves,
Britons never will be slaves.
The haughty tyrants ne'er shall tame
Al!   their   attempts   to   bend   thee'
down
Will but arouse thy gen'rous Same, ■   I
But work     their woe    and   thy renown.
Rule,  Britannia, rule the waves,    J
Britons never will be slaves.
The Muses,  still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coast repair.
Elest isle!      with     matchless beauty
crown'd,
And manly hearts to guard the fair.
Rule, Britannia, rule the waves,
Britons never will he slaves.
An Unrecognized Genius.
So came "Rule, Britannia." The
Prince in whose honor the entertain- .
ment was given has long heen forgot-
ten, if never tie was remembered. It
is recorded that he made a handsome present to a Spanish dancer
who enlivened the proceedings, but
he as well as the other distinguished
guests was unaware tbat they listened that afternoon to a song which :
British neople will never forget. Indeed, it was not until some years
iater that anyone took the troujde to
nnd out wbo had written the music oi
tbe son..-. It was then discovered that
tbe honor was due to a Dr. Anne, a
young English musical genius, who
later won contemporary fume by his
musical settings of several Shakespearean plays.      as well as Milton's '
C !:.;.-." Seine of his Bon^s are
still sum:, but never before or nfter-
ward did he produce anything like
"Rule Britannia." For the words
credit is due to Thomson, though
Mallet, when the soul- grew in
popularity, tried to claim a joint.
authorship.

tween tha Pirates and the High
school. The game was a little late in
starting as the teams had some difficulty in fielding players. The High
school had tbe first time at bat and
went down without scoring, when the
Pirates came to the bat they scored
two runs in the inning. In the third
the school boys tied tbe score and no
more runs were made till the last
of the fourth, when the scholars went
up iu the air and the Pirates ran in
six, winning the game 8 to 2. Mr.
Ward handled the game in his usual
satisfactory manner.
The game for tonight is between
