Angus Mcl'hee, a machinist, employed by Messrs. Foley, Welch and
Stewart on the boring of the Rogers
I'ass tunnel has entered suit for $12,-
0UO damages for injury to bis left
eye sustained ia a blast of high ex-
plosives iu tbe tunnel. He alleges
that eight of the holes failed to explode on February 26, and although
the gang of men wanted to wait to
see if they would explode, the men
were ordered back into the tunnel by
foreman, Clarkes Parrott under threat
of instant dismissal. No Sooner had
they reached the spot thaa the charg-
(8 exploded, causing the injury to
McPhee, who was in the lead. The
trial i3 fixed to take place on June i.
A somewhat similar case to that
o! McPhee is now undergoing negotiation for settlement. The plaintiff,
August Tapane, was at work „in the
pioneer tunnel boring holes for es
plosives, when one of the charges
failed to explode, Tapane was ordered to bore a hole alongside, parallel
to the "hung shot," and on objecting
the foreman, Blackey is said to have
taken the drill to start the hole to
Ehow that it was safe. The hole proved to he croolred and the drill touched the charge, with the result that
the foreman Hlackey was killed and
Tapane who was standing by had bis
right "ye blinded and his skull frac-
tired. Messrs. Taylor, Harvey & Co.
are acting on behalf ol Ta] ine and

Gilbert and Suiiiv.'iii's Manager Was a
Martinet of the Stage,
Tlio strictness with wUloh tlio late
Sir w. s. Gilbert governed the Savoy
company, in the days of the famous
partnership between himself and sir
Arthur .Sullivan, has given rise to
many stories. Not only was u veto
placed on "KagsInK" during a performance—Gilbert insisting that his
lines should always he strictly adhered lo—hut "clowning" was ahsolutoly
forbidden at rehearsals.
An amusing illustration of tho
strict methodB adopted at the So>voy
In those days is afforded by a story
told by Miss Julia Gwynno, who became Mrs. George Edwardes.
One day, during a performance of
"H. M. S. Pinafore," Mr. Itichard
Barker, tbe stage manager, called
Miss Owynno up to him and said:—
"Gwynne, I saw you laughing!
What, have you got lo say?"
"Really, Mr. Barker," replied Miss
Gwynne, "I as.ure you — you must
have heen mistaken. I wns not laughing—lt was onl. my natural amiable
expression thn I you saw."
"Ye-es, I know that amiable expression!" Then turning to th* call-
boy, Barker pronounced soptenco
thus: "Gwynne lined half a crown for
This story Is tc Id In somo rem''ils-
conces of Gilbert, Sullivan, und
D'Oyly Carte, by P. Collier and C,
Bridgeman (Pitman). Sullivan, it
appears, was as strict about the correct rendering of Lis music as Gilbert
Was In regard to the proper speaking
of his lines. There were occasions
when a singer would, with full assurance of his own perfection, give forth
Borne song hardly recognizable by the
composer, whereupon Sullivan would
humorously commend the singer on
his capital tune and llirn ho would
add—"And now, my friend, might I
trouble you to try mine?"
There was another occasion when
a tenor, as tenors are wont lo do,
lingered unconscionably on a high
note. Sullivan interrujited him with
the remark, "Yes, that's a fine note
—a very fine note—but please do
not mistake your voice for my coin-
Such was Gilbert's thoroughness
and strict attention <n detail that,
when he and Sullivan were preparing
"Pinafore." they paid a Visit to Portsmouth and went on board Nelson's
famous old flagship, tho Victory.
There, by permission of the na.val
authorities, Gilbert made sketches of
every detail of the quarter-deck, to
the minutest ringbolt, thole-pin, or
halyard. From these sketches he was
able to prepare a complete model of
the Pinafore's deck. With the aid of
this model, with various colored
blocks to represent principals ami
chorus, the author, like an experienced general, worked out his plan of
campaign ln the retirement of his
studio, and so rame to the theatre
prepared to marshal his company.

Bayonet Work.
No soldiers like to face tbe hay-
onet, least of all the Germans. But
tl i death-rate from cold steel, In the
different wars of the last century,
show that it is not so d adly as ls
generally supposed—perhaps because
the enemy usually fly when they see
It! In Prussia's war with Austria,
ln 1866, the death-rate through
wounds inflicted l»y tl.e bayonet was
given as 4 per cent, in ihe Austrian
anny, and 5 per cent, ln the Prussian. In their war wit' the French
in 1870 the Germans killed ninety-
nine men with shrapnel and the bullet for every one tbey put out of
action with cold steel. But than, tbe
Germans lack the dash necessary for
a bayonet charge. If we turn to the
work of the British troops, we find
that during the Crimean war, at 'he
Battle of Inkerman, the bayonet
work of the soldiers accounted for
the comparatively large number of
ten in every 100, while J -Ing the
Boer war some authorities have estimated the death-rate from this cause
at 8 per cent, of thOBe killed in action.
During the present w..r them bave
not been many chances ior a bayonet
charge, but when lt has taken place
the old cry, "Now, lad gl 8 them
tin bayonet," has alway -filled forth
a cheer. The French, too, are fond
of the bayonet; It suits the; style of
their dashing attack, ajd thoy havo
christened it "La Rosali ■"—for it ls
often red.

Hundreds of men wer,. enlisted
and thousands of dollars were Invested in the work done by the Y.M.C.A.

How to Make More Spaco For Hanging Clothing.
A clever closet arrangement made
by a woman who found too littlo
closet room in her small house is an
Idea well worth passing on. She had
a carpenter put up a nhelf eighteen
Inches wide by llfty-six Inches long
and sixty Inches from the floor. On
top be built three hatboxes eighteen
inches square, with drop fronts Instead of covers and snap catch bolts
to fasten tbem with. Under the shelf
he put a wooden curtain pole hallway
between the edge of the shelf and
the wall and three Inches from the
Bhelf. The clever woman herself
painted and enameled the shelf and
boxes white, fastened a smull brass
rod around tbe shelf and made a curtain of dark blue denim, making a
cut out applique border of the wrong
side of the denim, which waB pale
blue, and buttonholing the edge with
white. The curtain waa quite full,
and a few weights were put in the
bottom hem to keep tho folds in
She slipped her best gowns Into
well blued muslin bags, thus leaving
the regular closet for everyday use.
The hatboxes obviated the necessity
of having bandboxes under the bed.
In the kitchen she had the carpenter build her a window box tha
width and length of the sill, six
Inches high and divided Into three
compartments with kinged covers. In
two of these srere kept her kitchen
forks, knives and spoons and ln the
third small laundry accessories. Thll
left the small table drawer for the
towels. In the bottom of each hardware compartment was a small cot*
ton flannel pad to keep the things
from rattling and scratching.

No words can describe the patience, good humor and skill of the
Swiss guides. Their quick eyes see
every danger, their prompt actlonB
avert It. When "on the rope" one
has a feeling of perfect security, and
on Bteep aretes and rotten ice, on
crumbling rocks and abrupt precipices, one has implicit confidence in
their strength, judgment and endurance. That these guides possess a
sixth sense Is indisputable. One
might almost call it acute premonition, for it warns them in advance
of all dangers incident to mountain-
eerlng and, combined with a marvelous dexterity and an intrepid cour-
age, serves to avert calamity and Insure success.
