THE LOCAL  TRAINS  SHOULD

With the inauguration Sunday of the new time schedule,
affording an improved train
service, the time has arrived
when the boards of trade of
the district should press Vigorously for the establishment of
a second mail service, As We:
understand the situation, the
local which how runs through
to and frbm; 'Medicine Hat,
connects with main line trains
and for that reason another
mail service would bd a great
benefit. We db hot think
therB will be any great difficulty in getting a service on

hard enough by the business
organizations along thg line.

PILES
FOR FOUR YEARS
Only those who suffer from Wee
can know the agony, the burning,
throbbing, shooting, stabbing pains
which the ailment causes, ana the
way it wrecks the sufferer's life.
Zuiu-* Buk U blissed by thousands
who used tn sutler from piles, but
whom it has cured. One such grateful
person is Mrs. Elizabeth Taylor, of
Greenwoo-t Avenue, Toronto. Sho
jays:—" For four long years 1 suffered
acutely from bleeding piles, During
that time I spent an immense amount of
money on ' remedies ' and doctor's prescriptions but got no ease1. Zam-Buk
was different to everything else I had
tried, and it cured me I am grateful
for the cure, and as I, have never had
piles once since, I know the cure it
permanent."
Another thankful woman is Mrs, E.
A. Gardiner, of Catalina, Trinity Bay.
She says:—"U my case Zam-Buk
effected a wondt rful cure.   For twelve
Sears I had been troubled with blind,
leedine, and protru'ling piles. I had
been using various kinds of om'ments,
etc , but never came across anything to
dome good until I tiled Zam-Buk, which
cured me. That this may be the means
of helping some sufferers from piles to
try Zam-Buk, is the wish of one who
has found great relief."
Zam-Buk is a purely herbal balm and
should be in every home. Cures cuts,
burns, bruises, eczema, ulcers, blood-
poisoning, prairie itch, sunburn, blisters,
sore feet, summer sores, and all diseases
and injuries of the skin. etc. All

Lord Tredegar Tells of the Famous
Charge at Balaclava.
Lord Tredegar, who has recently
come in for some publicity in the
English papers because of his promise of a site for a sanitorium on
Penrhiwdarven Mountain, neur Aber-
corn, is one of the most notable survivors of the Balaclava charge. As a
young officer he rode with the Light
Brigade, and on its return found himself, then a lieutenant in the 17th
Lancers, in command, all his senior
officers having been killed or wounded. Some time ago he was induced to
put on record what he did and saw
on that memorable day. A hundred
times, says M.A.P., he was as near
death as a man can possibly be. "I
appeared," he said in the narrative,
"to be riding straight on to the niuz-
tsle of one of the guns, and I distinctly saw one of the gunners apply his
fuse. I shut mv eyes then, for I
thought that settled the question so
far as I was concerned.
"But the shot just missed me and
struck the man on my left full in
the chest In another minute I was
on tho gun, and the Russian's grey
horse, shot, fell across my horse,
dragging it over with him and pinning me in between the gun and himself. A Russian gunner came on foot
and covered me with his carbine. He
was .just within reach, and I struck
him across his neck. At the same
time a mounted gunner struck my
horse with his sabre on the forehead, Spurring 'Sir Briggs," he half
jumped, half blundered, over the fal-
lep horses, and bolted with me. I
only remember finding myself alone
amongst the Russians, trying to get
out as b°st I could." In spite of all,
both Lord Tredeg»r and his horse
came out alive, Sir Brings to die
manv years afterwards in the calm seclusion of Tredegar Park.
House Henry VIII. Liked.
Stanwell Place, near Stames, the
home of Sir Alexander Gibbons, is,
curiously enough, the ancestral home
of Lord Plymouth's family, and the
way they came to lose it is a strange
story. Henry VIII. took a fancy to
Stanwell and made up his mind to
have it. He had a pretty way of doing things, had Henry, and one fine
day he sent word to Lord Windsor
that ho was coming to dine' with him.
Every preparation wns made to entertain His Majesty royally and well,
but after the banquet the King informed his host that he liked Stanwell so much that ,he had decided to
possess himself of it and gave him
the grant of llordersley Abbey in
Worcestershire instead. Lord Windsor begged hard to be allowed to keep
Stanwell, which had been in his family for several centuries, but it was
iu vain.—London Gentlewoman.
The Troubles of an Actor.
Mr. Lawrence Grossmith, the musical comedy "dude" who is playing
with so much success as Geoffrey
Smith in "An Englishman's Home,"
in London, has received many curious communication from all parts
of the globe since the production of
the play at Wyndham's Theatre. One
morning on official letter from an
army captain in 'Switzerland reached
hint. The sender stated that he had
witnessed the play, and was generally shocked to learn that one of the
characters playing an insignificant
part was "cloaked" with his name,
and even purported to represent his
regiment, wearing Ihe same style of
uniform, and in every detnil mocking the aggrieved writer. The character referred to was Capt. Finch, of
the 6th Vol. Batl. Blinkshire Regiment, and Mr. Grossmith was requested to furnish a full explanation
of the incident without delay.

The Burning Question
A Baltimore teacher was trying to
explain the meaning of the word "re.
cuperate."
"Charley," she said, •"when night
comes your father returns homo tired
and worn out, doesn't he?"
"Yes., ma'am," assented Charley.
"Then," continued the teacher, "it
being night, and he being tired, what
does he do?"
''that's whnt ma wants to know,"
I said Charley.—Success Magazine.     \
Mme. Albani Was Intimate With Her
Late Majesty.
Mme. Albani, who is just now singing at the London music halls, was
educated at the Convent of the Sacro
Coeur at Montreal, and so beautiful
was her singing at High Mass in the
chapel that people came from all the
country round on Sunday to hear her,
says MA.P. Iiiends subscribed to
put her under the first "singing masters at Milan; and Samperti, after instructing her,for about a year, dismissed her with the words, "Go and
prosper. You have a fortune in your
little throat!" At Malta, when singing in "La Sonnambula," she attracted the notice of Mr. Gye, who engaged her to sing in the same opera at
Covent Garden, which she did with
amazing success. Her appearance in
other operas followed, and her triumph was even greater in oratoria,
there being those who declared that
her exaltation in the soprano airs of
"The Messiah" surpassed that of
Jenny Lind.
In private life Albani wns much
liked, and more particularly by Queen
Victoria, who treated her as an intimate friend, and never omitted to
send her little gifts and cards at
Christmas and the New Year. When
the prima donna visited Berlin in the
early' nineties she was received by the
old Empress Augusta, a ghastly figure
pule as death, but draped from head
to foot in red!—yes, »ven her bonnet
wns red!—and lying prone on a sofa.
The brilliancy and charm of the old
lady's conversation soon made the
prima donna quite forget the uncan-
niness of her appearance, and the
two chatted happily until in came
Kaiser Wilhelm and the Kaiserin,
who asked for a song, and yet another. When Albani had warbled her
lust ballad. Ihe Kaiser, shaking hands
heartily with her, said: "Good-bye,
and, when you see her, give my love
to grandmamma I"
Whilst on the subject of Albani, I
may tell a little anecdote that.I'heard
from the lips of Pntti herself. In
early days, Patti one line morning
was walking down Regent street, London, arm-inarm with her first husband, the Marquis de Caux. At tbe
windows of the Stereoscopic Company
she stopped to look at the photograph
of her rival there displayed. "Look,"
cried a young man' standing by, who
did not recognize the diva, "at that
photograph of Albani! Oh, she's Al,
and Patti's nowhero now!" Patti
turned quickly on the speaker.
"Thank you, sir," she said, with a
smart little bow, and tripped off
gaily.

of the northern states threaten the extermination of deer.. Wolves, it appears, are especially numerous and destructive in Wyoming.
An interesting statement made by
Mr. Bailey is that elk are great natural °nemies of wolves, and he dwells
on this as of "great practical significance" for its bearing on the protection of stock from the ravenous beast.
He quotes with unqualified approval
these words from George W. Ross, of
Eureka Springs, Ark.:
"An elk is the natural enemy of dogs
and wolves. We suffered great losses
to our flock until we. learned this fact,
Since then we have had no losses from
this cause. A few elk to a thousand,
acre pasture will absolutely protect
the flocks therein."
Keeping Time in Holland
"Railroad time, as we generally understand the phrase in the United
I States, is a little ahead of the 'town'
time, but in The Hague, the quaint
old capital of Holland, all private
and unofficial clocks and watches are
kept twenty minutes fast," said Ger.
aid Walthall.
"When it is noon in the railway
station, post-office and other government buildings of The Hague the
timepieces in the shops and the
watches of the sturdy burghers show
12.20 p.m. Just what reason there is
for this I don't know, although I
asked enlightenment in mnny auar-
ters. It seems a custom that has been
handed down for generations, and the
Dutch are too conservative to change
the ways of their progenitors without,
some mighty inducement."

quicker than anything else.
Steel From Black Sand.
W. J. Shaw, a Toronto man, claims
that he can produce fine tool steel
from sund. The production is effected by means of a secret process of
preparation of material, and of a. specially devised patentable furnace.
Shaw recently took a newspaperman
through the entire operation, beginning with the separation of the magnetite from the silicate sand obtained
on Hanlan's Island, showing the electro-magnetic separator, of his own invention, the furnace, the material as
prepared and biiquetted for the furnace, the first and most important
product, steel bloom, and the forged
steel; giving the productive capacity
of the furnace, the cost of fuel and of
material and labor; and sandwiching
in reasons why, and technical information galore. It all seems to demonstrate conclusively that high
grade tool steel ingots can be produced from this black sand, at about the
market price of charcoal pig iron.
Who can estimate the revolution
which such a discovery is bound to
make in the tool steel manufacturing
interest in this country?
An End In View.
Life savers do not take their work
as seriously as the newspapers make
out, sometimes.
The three-masted schooner St. Louis
waa ashore on the Island (Toronto)
sandbar the other Sunday. She is
an old timber drogher of the Welland
canal type, built to fit the locks without any more waste of planking than
necessary; in fact her general model
conforms to the famous description
"built by the mile and sawed off in
lengths."
When the tiny fishing skiff that the
Ward brothers had rushed through
the breakers hung like a gull under
the jibboom bf the schooner, watching the chance to snatch the crew from
the jaws of the devouring waves, the
squareness of the vessel s bows was
very noticeable to the life-savers.
"Say, cap," one of them yelled as
their craft was hove up an a wave
crest to the level of the shipwrecked
crew, "to decide a bet, would you
mind saying which is the front end
of this vessel?"
"Billy" Machan's First Campaign.
The death of Dr. McMahon, of Os-
goode Halt, recalls the fact that it
was in a campaign against the doctor that Mr. W. V. Maclean took his
first plunge into politics. It was
about twenty years ago. Dr. McMahon had represented North Went-
worth for some years in the Ontario
Legislature, and wss again a candidate—a very popular one. It was a
Bummer campaign, and a former
Wentworth man, who then resided at
Dundas, says that the first thing W.
F. did when he went into the riding
was to buy a big, broad-brimmed soft
hat, and start out canvassing the
farmers. The fight was a lively one.
About that time the late A. F. Pirie
bought The Dundas Banner, and his
first appearance before a Dundas
audience was r.t a joint" meeting,
where he and Maclean had U "hot
and heavy." The latter lost the election, but only after a hard contest.
Miners OH to New Field.
The discovery of a placer mining
area, 15 miles by five, near Cochrane,
or 150 miles northwest of Cobalt, is
the latest mining news from the
north.
A man from Cobalt says that from
three to four hundred men have stampeded from Cobalt to Cochrane, and
more are preparing to follow. One
man cume down to Cobalt and reported that |75 per pan was being secured. This man had $1,500 in nuggets,   ,

Witb a smile of glorious anticipation
Illuminating his chubby face, Bobby
trotted up tbe street as fast as a pair
of very fat and very little legs would
carry him. He was going to see pick
Brant. Next to visiting Alice May-
Ung tbls was bis greatest treat
Richard Brant could not make amazing cookies and preserves like Miss
Mayllng, but, he could tell stories ol
Indians and grizzlies and other creatures dear to the small boy's heart.
Miss Mayllng's stories carried morals
and were about little boys Who were
so very good tbat Bobby found them
extraordinarily uninteresting. Had It
not been thut tbe Mayllng cakes were
us good as her young heroes Bobby
would not bare been u frequent caller
on Alice Mayllng.
Tbls afternoon aa he was warming
bis dimpled bands before the open Ore
he regarded with secret awe the deft
fashion In whlcb Brant rolled himself
a cigarette with one hand. Brant bad
been a plainsman until be had run
across a mine while lie was looking
for stray cuttle, and he could throw a
rope and talk real Indian talk.
"1 looked for yon yesterday," said
Dick Brunt gravely ns be sank Into a
chair on the opposite side of the lire-
place.
"I was seeing Miss Mayllng," explained Bobby, "Sbe makes cake on
Thursdays."
"And you deserted me because Miss
Mayllng was making cuke!" cried Dick
solemnly. In reality, though he used
mock palhos, be was a little jealous of
Miss Mayllng's popularity with his little cnum. Somehow Bobby seemed to
Brant the most sincere friend be bad
made In the big eastern city.
"Cake Is nice Just out of tbe oven,"
explained Bobby. "She always bakes
a little cake for me, and of course 1
bave to go and eat It."
"I suppose so." assented Dick, "but
I was very lonesome yesterday."
"I'm sorry," said Bobby, wltb
prompt penitence nnd a troubled face.
"Wouldn't It be nice," be added, "If I
could go to see you and Miss Mayllng
at tbe same time? You could tell me
atorlea and sbe could bake cake,"
He stared Into tbe Ore, lost In rapture at tbe thought of this most valuable combination. Dick looked scared
and blushed. He was little used to
feminine society, and a suggestion like
tbat. even from Bobby, startled blm.
Besides, be bad been secretly studying
Miss Mayllng from afar.
"Tben you wouldn't tie lonesome any
more," resumed Hubby, the vast at-
tractions of his good Idea growing on
bim, "not even If I didn't come and
see you, 'cause tben you and abe would
have each otber. But of course 1 would
come to see you." be added quickly.
"It would be awful nice."
"I guess It would," assented Dick a
little absently.
"Then why don't you?" demanded
Bobby, wltb engaging directness.
"To begin with, I don't know ber,"
explained Dick. "You see, a man bas
to know a lady before he can call on
her, and I've never met Miss Mayllng."
Wben Bobby finally trotted away he
was thinking deeply. It waa absurd
that bis best mun should not know
Miss Mayllng.
At tbe next baking day at Miss Mayllng's tbe thought was revived, and
wltb a ofenlal thnt meant Immense determination* to blm be obtained per
mission to take his small spice cake
bome. As soon as be wns out of ber
sight he carried It to Brant, bis fat
legs speeding wonderfully.
"Ain't it fine}" he demanded eagerly
when he bad watched Brant devour
tbe last spicy morsel, not wil bout envy
tbat almost assumed a poignant degree.
"Simply great" admitted Brant, with
unforced enthusiasm. "I tell you. Bobby, tbe woman wbo made that cake la
a wonder of a cook."
Bobby beamed his professional satisfaction. "I thought you'd like It." be
said confidently. "She makes nicer
cakes than that sometimes. I'll bring
you anotber wben sbe makes fruit
cake."
"Don't do It," advised Brant smilingly. "If tbe fmlt cake Is as good as
this I'm liable to abduct ber and force
ber to bake cuke for me for tbe rest of
ber life."
"What's abduct?" demanded Bobby.
When the word bed been explained to
blm be wrinkled bis pudgy brows. But
If another deep Idea hud come to hlm,
as that coutortlon would seem to denote. It remained a secret in bis fat
breast "Give us an Indian story," be
demanded.
"All right, son," said Dick as be
stretched himself out In hla easy chair
and prepared to enterlaln bis small
guest with tbe story of how Chief
Spotted l'uniher carried off his Indian
bride from the camp of a hostile tribe.
He was unusually graphic In bis
story telling, for os be went on he lie-
gun to Imagine that he was Spotted
Panther and Miss Mayllng was tbe
Indian maid. Thus sudly had the unprincipled suggestions of the scheming
Bobby riintnmliiiited Dick Brant's good
manners. But It must he admltled In
his fuvor that It was not the cuke, but
the memory of her womanly sweetness, that tired his thoughts ond lent
eloquence to his tougue.
It wus u deeply Impressed small boy
who climbed down off the chair arm
when the tale was done and regret-
fnlly announced thnt he wnuul have tn
be going home.    Tbe very next day
he went to vlsty Miss Mayllng with
tbe more or less peremptory request
tbat abe hake him a fruit cake.
■'Going to bave a tea party. Bobby?"
abe aaked gayly.*   But Bobby shook
hia bead solemnly and declined to be
j drawn into trivial conversation.
j    "I .want It for some one—some one
! who doesn't get nice cuke," be.con-
{descended   at   Inst   examining   Miss
Mayllng shrewdly us be spoke.
"If you don't tell me wbo It Is I
won't bake it for you," sbe teased, anticipating the revelation nf some new
love affair. Bobby wus as popular as
be was fickle, and Miss Mayllng, hardened by experience with the young
man, supposed thut only tbe power of
love could bave Induced him to forego
tbe eating of ber cake the day before.
"Have 1 got to?" he asked anxiously,
fearful that a premature explanation
might destroy the success of tbe abduction.
"Certainly," Insisted Miss Mayllng.
Bobby was dismayed. But the cake
must be secured at all hazards.
"lt'B for Mr. Brant," he explained.
"He said If you baked blm a fruit
cake he'd come with bis pony nnd bit
all the chiefs on the bend wltb a torn-
niyhawk and curry you off and make
you bake cake for him all the rest of
your life. You'll hnve to live In u tent
and cook with hot stones Instead of. a
gas range, and—and—anyhow, be says
he'll do it If you tempt blm wltb fruit
cake."
Miss Mayllng leaned over and kissed
tbe earnest little face.
"I think," she suld softly, "that I'll
bake two little cukes next week, Bobby, so tbat you and your friend ahull
each have one."
Bobby looked Into the serene face,
Into which there hud crept something
he had never seeu there before—a tender curve to the even lips, a new
light In tbe brown eyes that made
them glow and sparkle and film with
tears by turns.
He had always thought Miss May-
Hug almost as pretty us his mother,
but now be wns disloyal for a moment and thought she wus more beautiful tban anybody he hnd ever seen.
His moist little fingers clasped ber
slim, cool band, and be looked up Into
ber starry eyes.
"1 wish 1 was big enough to 'duct
you," be said enviously. "I bet Mr.
Brant wouldn't get that rake."
Alice Mayllng bent over and pinched
his chubby cheeks.
"Bobby, my dear, you remind me ot
a certain little god without whose aid
Lochlnvar himself would hnve failed."
And then she looked up suddenly to
see passing ber window a tall, straight
figure, wltb bis glance firmly fixed
ahead.
"Of course he wouldn't be so ordinary aa to stare In here," ahe said
softly. "But he's tbe sort who'll find
a way—and I don't think I'll make It
very bard for him."
Bobby cuddled closer to her soft,
silken frock,
"What makes grownups nay things
that don't tell anything?" be demanded.  But sbe did not answer.
Intoxicating Drinks.
"We bave 0.000 Intoxicating drinks
In America," said a temperance lecturer.   "That, I believe, la tbe record.
"Export as our metropolitan bartenders are, tbey bave none of them

A Queer Fish.
In European fresh wuter Is to be
found a very large ailurold known aa
the wels. Its bead Is large, broad and
depressed, fully us long an the trunk
Itself, while the tall Is compressed
and longer than the bead and trunk
together. The entire fish Is destitute
of scales and covered wltb a smooth,
slippery akin like au eel. The snout
Is very short, tbe mouth broad, witn
tbe lower Jaw longer and very extensible. Tbere are six barbels around
the mouth, two of wblch, shunted on
each side of the upper Juw before the
eye, ore very long, extending nearly
to tbe tall. The other four ure much
shorter and arranged in pairs on tbe
chin. Owing to Us poor eyesight nnd
sluggish movements the wels would
be badly handicapped In the race of
life If uot for these barbels, especially
those of the upper Jaw, which can be
moved voluntarily lu every direction.
In moving leisurely about the lish uses
them constantly hi feeling Its wuy,
and at the same time they acne to attract other fishes, which mistake them
for worms. When the wela perceives
ltn prey close enough to be seized It
mnkes n dnrt and rarely falls to capture It.-New York Tribune

A YEAR'S PATENTS.
What .Inventors Throughout the Empire Are Doing.
The 26th report of the Comptroller-
General of Patents, Designs, and
Trade Marks, shows that in 1908 there
were 28,698 applications tor patents,
19,495 specifications were provisional,
and 17,746 complete, and 16,284 patents were sealed. The largest number of applications made on one day
was 169—on Dec. 24. The applications
from women inventors numbered 672,
as compared with 560 in 1,907. Last
year 24,389 designs and 5,965 trade
marks were registered. The total receipts in tiie department were $1,386.-
675, of which $1,314,450 was from patent fees. The year's Work involved
290,000 letters and 93,000 parcels of
publications. As to the trend of invention in 1908, the report stated that
the subject of locomotion in general
occupies a prominent position in the
titles of applications for patents made
during the year, and this is regarded
as principally due to the continued
interest taken in the motor-car.
Though diminishing, activity still prevails as regards wheels, where efforts
have been largely directed towards
the provision of an easily detachable
tyre-carrying'rim. Attempts to abate
the dust nuisance are shown in many
inventions relating to road tarring
machines, compositions for treating
the surfaces of roads, and dust-collector fittings on the cars.
The desire to facilitate roadside repairs to motor road vehicles has caused increased attention to be given to
the minor subjects of tools, such as
spanners and valve lifters. The interest shown in the mechanically propelled road vehicle is accompanied by
some neglect of horse-drawn and railway vehicles. Many inventors continue to be occupied with flying machines of the "heavier than air" type,
especially in regard to their automatic balancing, and to facility of manipulation of the various rudders und
planes.
The increasing importance of india-
rubber in the industrial world is
shown by attention being given to
processes lor the regeneration of
waste rubber and the synthetic production of rubber or rubber-like products. The economical tendency of
inventors is manifested in the number of applications received in connection with holders for rendering
possible the stropping of thin flexible
razors of the "safety" type. It is
recorded that procedure under the
Acts of 1902 and 1907 has tended to
strengthen the position of the genuine
inventor and prevent the patent system being misused by adventurers as
a means of encroaching on the rights
of the public. Under section 27 of
the Act of 1907, which provides for
the revocation of patents worked exclusively or mainly outside the
United Kingdom, 15 applications
were made. Two of these were abandoned, in two cases the patents were
revoked, and 11 cases are pending.
In spite of the decrease in the total
number of applications received in
1903, those from England and Wales
were more numerous than in 1907 by
615, and those from other parts of the
United Kingdnm were almost equal in
number. The applications from Australia, New Zealand, and Canada show
a decided decrease. From Australia
166 were received and from Canada
165.

Queen Victoria's Favorite Novelist.
Amongst the many distinctions enjoyed by Mr. William Le Queux was
that M being the favorite novelist of
the late Queen Victoria. It is amazing what a multitude of experiences
this popular writer has crowded into
his life. He has a rare knowledge of
continental travel, is the personal
iriend of more than one European
monarch, and possesses quite a number of foreign decorations bestowed
upon him by royalty. No Englishman is better acquainted with political undercurrents abroad. It is this
fact which l°nds such interest lo his
book, "England's Peril," which is
now included in Ihe Newnes' Series
of Sixpenny Copyright Novels. If

Quaint Ceremony.
About sixty Chinamen proceeded tfl
the graves of two recently-buried C'
Icstials in Anfleld cemetery, Liverpool, Eng. A gigantic tray carried by
four Chinamen, nnd containing foods,
including a fully-grown roasb-d pig
decorated with red rosettes, cooked
fowls, beefsteaks, oranges, and sweets,
was brought on the scene, A bottle
or two of Scotch whisky, flunked wit*)
egg-cups and liqueur pleases, were also placed on one of the graves. The
spirit was plentifully poured upon
the meats and rice was sprinkled upon the grave, and afterwards joss-
sticks, paper offerings, and boxes ol
crackers were burnt. The explosion
of the fireworks made a lively diversion in the otherwise solemn proceedings.

ton bells "the most musical peel in

was added there were great rejoicings.
The bell, with a capacity of seventy-
three gallons, was filled witli "good

BLINDERS ON BRIDLES.
What' a Nebraska Horse Trainer Has
to Say About Them.
Most any of ta would aa Boon be   GENERAL SIR O'MOORE CREAGH
buried as to lose our eyesight, and {
yet  men by the use of blinders on !
bridles    unhesitatingly   deprive   the -
horse of all tbe means be bus of satis- j
tying himself tbat nothing will hurt
bim, writes a Nebraska horse trainer
in the Breeder's Gazette, Chicago.
Wben permitted the use of bis eyes
he uses them with great judgment.
He sees better than we do, can measure distances better and If allowed the
use of his eyes would save himself
from collisions on tbe street, washouts
and bad ruts In the road. Should you
be thrown suddenly out of the buggy
or tbe buggy break be could see tbe
trouble and stop.
Break a horse in a blind bridle and
never let him see the buggy; a month
later you are driving along tbe road,
the blinds get adjusted wrong, the colt
looks back over tbe top of one, sees
the buggy and kicks It all to pieces,
endangering tbe life of yourself and
family. But be Is not to blame. Self
protection Is bis first thought.
A man once paid me $20 to break a
team that would get scared and run
away. I took bis money, guve him a
pair of open bridles, and tbe team is
perfectly safe, but It bad cost him a
broken leg and bad torn up two sets
of harness, smashed a buggy and broken a wagon tongue. And yet tbey
say a blind bridle is the best. I was
talking to a man one day on this subject, and he said he knew blind bridles
were the best because nearly every
one used them, '"What an argument!
There was a time when nearly everybody thought the earth was fiat, but
they were wrong. He said, too, that a
horse. looked better in blind bridles.
What an idea! A little piece of black
leather look better than the eye, the
life and beauty of tbls noble creature!
Yet few men have a better reason for
using tbem.
Horse training is my business. I
work at it ten hours a day, six days in
the week. I bundle every class of
horse, from tbe little wild mustang
from the Crow Indian reservation to
the blgb class speed horse, from tbe
gaited snddler to the circus borse. I
have spent my life nt this work, and
tbere Is notbing causes me more trouble than this subject.
I can break a team $5 cheaper In
open bridles, aiid where people want
tbem broken to blinds I always use
open bridles first. My experience runs
into the thousands tbat I bave had a
chance to test tbls on, and I cannot
see where any one can get 90 per cent
In favor of blind bridles. Tbe only
place I ever found for tbem was on a
wornout, poorly fed borse tbat could
scarcely go and a blind hone.
Man Who Succaeds Kitchener of
Kandahar Wears the Victoria Cross
Among His Many Decorations-
He Went Through Some Dangerous Places During His Early Days
—He is an  Irichman.
General Sir O'Moore Creagh has
just received one of the handsomest
birthday presents, on record. On the
sixty-second anniversary of his birth
he was presented with the post of
Commander-in-Chief in India, in succession to Lord Kitchener.
' In all India he will have only one
man above him, the Viceroy; and hia
post will involve the control of upwards of 337,000 troops, British and
native, scattered over 2,000,000 square
miles', ind the maintenance of the se-
curity of some 300,000,000 people. And
every year he will receive the odd but
comfortable income of £6,666.
Like many of his famous predecessors in his new post—to mention only
Lord Roberts and Lord Kitchener—
the new Commander in-Chief is an
Irishman. His lather was- a navy
man. but young Creagh went to Sandhurst, and a few years later he was
given a lieutenancy on the Indian
Staff Corps'. Seven years later he got
his company, and almost immediately
the Afghan war broke' put, He was
sent to the Iront nnd joined the
Kh'yber column, and it was while oh
service with it that he won that most
coveted    decoration — the     Victoria
The outpost to which he was attached was stationed at Dakka, on.
the Kabul river, which meanders
through the "Khyber Pass. Late one
afternoon a native spy came into
Dakka and informed the officer in
command that the Momunds—one of
the most warlike of the tribes—were
gathering from the surrounding villages with the object of cutting the
British line of communication.
Things looked very serious, nnd
the commander decided that a desperate effort must be made to drive
off the Momunds. He sent for Captain Creagh, who was in command
of a native battalion called Merwerns,
and ordered him to take two companies (about a hundred and flftv
men) and march to the village of
Kam Dakka, a lew miles off. Ho
was, the officer said, to hold the placi
and keep the line of communication
open at all costs.
In a short time Creagh and his li*-
tle force were ready. The sun wes
near the horiuon as they swung out
of the camp, and soon their move-
ments were cloaked in the darkness.
This waB very luckv, for it enabled
them to approach Kam Dakka and
occupy it before the villagers hr I
time to make any resistance; indeed,
the night was beginning to lift before
the natives discovered how things
stood. %
After a few minutes of surprise they
became indignant and even threatening. But the young captain stood
fast and refused to b"dge. Finding
him immovable, the villagers gathered up their belongings nnd fled, taking with them most of the women
and children.
Soon the day broke nnd showed a
large force ot Momunds—at least ten
to one against the handf"! of Britis'i
-ready to attack the village. Captain Creagh hastily reconnoitred his
position, and snw that it was impossible lo hold the vilhte with any
chance of success. He decided to
withdraw to a cemetery thnt lay near
ond hnd the advantage of being sur.
rounded by a low wnll. Towards thi*
his men crept ill twos and threes
until the village was evacuated.
They gathered all the stones thev
could find and tried to improve their
defences by heightening the wall.
Captain Crenrh made them a litthi
speech, in which he explained how
much depended on them, and urged
them to he resolute.
Very soon the Momunds discovered
what bail happened, and they advanced cheering to attack Ihe cemetery. Not once nor twioa, but many
times the Momunds assaulted the
heroic little bund, and during tho
whole time Captain ('reach was at
the wall in Ihe thick ol each encounter. The lust n'taek was delivere.l
at three o'clock in the afternoon, and
just niter that bail been repulsed by
bayonet, rcliel arrived from Dakka,
and the Momundi retired.
In successive Afghan wars he continued In play a notable oiirt, earning steady promotion. During the
Boxer rebellion in China he commanded the Second Brigade of the
British Inrce, but lie was bitterly dis-
appointed uhen orders came thnt ho

The Draft Horse.
The draft horse possesses three
poluts that make blm a horse for heavy
work. He must have weight, whicb is
tbe lirst essential; heavy hock bones
nnd strong* muscles. When a horse
pulls the tendency Is to lift hlm off
the ground; hence the necessity of his
being heavy. If he bus his head checked high he cannot pull to nil vantage,
for It Is natural for him to draw bis
of perfection as to size, hut unless his
tendons and muscles are strong he
cannot stand heavy work. Like a
heavy chain, he la ouly strong as the

face.
"Yes. You came with your mother

wondering why sbe had been honored
with a visit
"Quite so. May I have a few minutes' conversation with your

to deny tbls request, although she did
not like Miss Krill. Bnt It struck ber
! tbat something might be learned from
tbat young woman relative to the murder and thought sbe would have something to tell Paul about when he arrived.
"Are you quite alone?" asked Maud,
entering and Beating herself In the
chair near tbe fire.
"Quite," answered Sylvia stiffly and
■wondering why tbe question was aaked—"that is, the four washerwomen
are In tbe place at tbe back. But
Mm. Tawsey went to your house to

"She arrived before I left," aaid
Maud coolly. "I saw them quarreling

"I expect blm later."
"And Bart Tawsey, who married

"He Is absent on bis rounds. May
I ask why you question me In thla
way, Miss Krill V asked Sylvia coldly.
"Because I have much to say to you
wblch no one else must hear," was tho
culm reply. "Dear me, how hot this
fire is!" And she moved her chair
eo tbat it blocked Sylvia's way to the
door; also Miss Krlll cast a glance at
the window. It was not anlbbed, and
sbe made a movement as If to go to
It; but, restraining herself, she turned
her calm, cold face to the girl. "I
have much to Bay to you," ahe repeated.
"Indeed," replied Sylvia politely, "I
don't think you have treated me so
well that you should trouble to converse with me. Will you please to be
brief? Mr. Beecot is coming ot 4,
and be will not be at all pleased to
tee you."
Maud glanced at the clock. "We
have an hour." she said coldly. "It
Is Just a few minutes after 3. My
business will not take lonftf." ahe added, with an unpleasant smile.
"What Is your business?" asked Sylvia uneasily, for she did not like the
amlle.
"If yon will sit down, TH tell yon."
Miss Norman took a chair near the
wall and as far from ber visitor as
was possible In so small a room.
Mand took from her neck a black silk
handkerchief which she wore, evidently aa a protection agalnat the cold,
and, folding it lengthwise, laid It
across ber lap. Then ahe looked at
Sylvia In a cola, critical way. "You

asked the girl, firing up at the tone.
"No. I came to tell you that my

murder of our father."
"Oh," Sylvia gasped and lay back
on her chair, "sbe killed him, that
cruel wouian!"
"She did not!" cried Maud passion-
ately. "My mother Is perfectly innocent My mother did not kill our father."

done, and I will carry the scar to my
grave. Child as I was then, I vowed
revenge"—
"On your father," Bald Sylvia contemptuously.
"Krlll Is not my father," said Maud,
changing front all at once. "He Is
yours, but not mine. My father is.
Captain Jessop. I have known thiH
for yeurs. Captain Jessop told me I
was his daughter. My mother thought
that my father was drowned at sea
and so married Krlll, who was a traveler In Jewelry. He and my mother
rented the Red Pig at Chrlstchurch,
and for years they led an unhappy
life."
"Oh," gasped Sylvia, "you confess!
I'll tell Paul."
"You'll tell no one," retorted the other woman sharply. "Do you think I
would speak so openly In order that
you might tell all the world with jour
gabbling tongue? Yes, and I'll speak
more openly still before I leave. Lady
Rachel Sandal did not commit suicide,
as my mother said. She was strangled, and by me."
Sylvia clapped her bands to her face
with a scream.   "By you?"
"Yea. She had a beautiful brooch. I
wanted It I was put to bed by my
mother and kept thinking of the
brooch. My mother was down the
stairs attending to your drunken father.
I stole to Lady Rachel's room and
found her asleep. I tried to take the
brooch from ber breast. She woke and
caught my hand. But I tore away the
brooch and before Lady Rachel could
scream I twisted the silk handkerchief
ahe wore, which was already around
ber throat, tighter. I am strong—I always was strong, even as a girl of fifteen. She was weak from exhaustion,
ao ahe soon died. My mother came Into
the, room and saw wbat I had done.
She was terrified and made me go back
to bed. Then she tied Lady Rachel
by tbe silk handkerchief to the bedpost,
so that It might be thought she had
committed suicide. My mother theu
came back to me and took the broocb,
telling me I might he hanged If It was
found on me. I was afraid, being only
a girl, and gave up the brooch. Then
Captain Jessop raised the alarm. I
and my mother went downstairs, and
my mother dropped the brooch on tbe
floor, so tbat It might be supposed Lady
Rachel had lost It there. Captain Jessop ran out. 1 wonted to give the
alarm and tell the neighbors that Krill
had done It, for I knew then he was
not my fatber, and 1 saw, moreover,
how unhappy he mode my mother. He
caught me," Bald Maud, with a fierce
look, "and bound a handkerchief across
my mouth. I got free and screamed.
Then he bound me hand and foot and
pinned my lips together with the brooch
wblch he picked off the floor. My
mother fought for me, but he knocked
her down. Then he lied, and after a
long time Jessop came in. He removed the brooch from my mouth and
unbound me. I was put to bed, and
Jessop revived my motber. Then came
the Inquest, and It waa thought that
Lady Rachel had committed suicide.
But she did not," cried Muud exultantly and with n cruel light In her eyes.
"I killed her-I"-
"Ob," moaned Sylvia, backing against
the wall with widely open eyes.
"Bah, you kitten!" sneered Maud contemptuously. "I bave not half done yet!
You have yet to hear how I killed
Krlll."
Sylvia shrieked and sank back In
her chair, staring with horrified eyes at
the-cruel face before ber.
"YeB." cried Maud exultlngly, "I
killed him. My mother suspected me,
but she never knew for certain. Listen. Wben Hay told me that Krlll
wos hldlug us Norman in Gwynne
street I determined to punish him for
his cruelty to me. I did not say this.
but I mnde Hay promise to get mc
the brooch from Beecot On no other
condition woula I marry him. I wanted the brooch to pin KrlU'a lips together as he had pinned mine when I
was a helpless child, but your fool of
a lover would not part wltb tbe broocb.
Tray, the boy, took It rrom Beecors
pocket when he met with that accident"—
"How do you know Tray?"
"Because I met him at Pasn*s office Severn I times when I was up. He
ran errands for Pasb before he became regularly employed. I saw that
Tray wus a devil of whom I could
mnke use. Oh, 1 know Tray, and I
know also Hokur, the Indian, wbo
placed the sugar on the counter. He
went to the shop to kill your father
at my request I wanted revenge and
tbe money. Hokar was saved from
starvation by my good mother. He

know anything about tbem."
"Oh," moaned Sylvia, covering her
face again.
"Ah. you do. So much the better.
It will save my eiplalnlug, as there is
not much time left before your fool
arrives. Hokar snw thut 1 loved to

I killed them, and it was thought he

them liecause I loved to see them suffer and because 1 wished to learn how
ahe was arranging to prosecute Krlll
for bigamy.   I met Tray tbere.    He
told me be bad given the brooch to
Pash and that It waa In the Inner office.   My mother was talking to Pash !
within, and 1 chatted to Tray outside. |
I told Tray I wanted to kill Krlll and
that If he would help me I would give
htm a lot of money.   He agreed, for
he was a boy such as I was wben a
i girl—fond of seeing things suffer. You
i can't wonder at It In me," went on
j Miss Krill coolly.   "My grandmother

i    "I won't listen," cried Sylvia, shud-
j dering.
I "Oh, yes, you will. I'll soon be done,"
I went on her persecutor cruelly. "Well,
then, when I found Tray was like myself I determined to get the brooch
and hurt Krlll—hurt him as he hurt
me," Bhe cried vehemently. "Tray
told me of the cellar and of the Bide
passage. Wheu my motber and Pash
came out of the Inner office and went
to the door I ran in and took the
brooch. It was hidden under some
papers and bod escaped my mother's
eye.   But I searched till I got It   Then

and my mother and I went to the theater. We had supper and retired to bed-
that Is, my mother did. We bad left
the theater early, as my mother had a
headache, and I had plenty of time.
Mother fell asleep almost Immediately. I went downstairs veiled and in
dark clothes. I slipped post the night
porter and met Tray. We went by the
side possage to the cellar: Thinking
we were customers, Krill let us In.
Tray locked the door, and I threw myself on Krill. He bad not been drinking much or I mlgbt not have mastered
him. As It was he was too terrified
wben he recognized me to struggle. In
fact, he fainted. With Tray's assistance I bound bis hands behind his
back, and then we enjoyed ourselves."
Sylvia rose and staggered to the door.
"No more—no more!"
Maud pushed her back Into ber chair.
"Stop where you nre, you whimpering
fool!" she snarled exultantly. "I hove
you safe." Theu she continued quickly nnd With another glance at th-fclock,
the long hand of which now pointed
to a quarter to 4. "With Tray's assistance I carried Krill up to the shop.
Tray found an auger and bored a hole
in th* Boor. Theu I picked up a coil
of copper wire which was being used
In packing things for Krill to make his
escape. I took it up. We laid Krlll's
neck over the hole and passed the wire
around his neck und through the hole.
Tray went down and tied a cross stick
on the end of the wire so that he could
put his weight on It when we stron-

"Oh, great heaven!" moaned Sylvia,
stopping her ears.
Maud bent over her and pulled her
hands away. "You shall hear, you
little beast," she snarled. "All the
time Krlll wns sensible. He recovered
his senses after he was hound. I prolonged bis agony ns much as possible.
When Trny went dowu to Bee after
the wire. I knelt beside Krlll nnd told
him that I knew I wns not his daughter; that I Intended to strangle him as
I bod strangled Lady Rachel. He
Bhrleked with horror. That wos the
cry you beard, you cat, and which

hands. "That was a treat for Krlll 1

his mouth together, as he had done
mine over twenty years before. Then
I sat beside him and taunted him. I
heard the policeman pass aud the
church clock strike tbe quarter. Then
I heard footsteps and guessed you
were coming. It occurred to me to
give you a treat by strangling the man
before your eyes and punish him more
severely, since the brooch stopped hlm

cried, striking ber breast.

DRINKING TIME FOR HORSES.
Common Sense Rules That Will Benefit the Beasts.
A horse should be watered before
feeding and never given a large quantity of water after a meal, for tbe
simple reason that tbe water will
wash I be food out of tbe stomach before stomach digestion has taken place,
and tbe food will not be well prepared
for absorption, and, besides, it is sometimes the cause of colic.
There Is a popular idea that a warm
horse should not be allowed to drink,
and, unlike n great many otber popular ideas, there Is a little truth in it
If you water a warm horse in the ordinary way, letting him drink all that
he will, you are likely to have a foundered horse on your hands. Tbls 1b
especially so If, at the time, the borse
is fatigued. Nevertheless it is always
safe to allow him from six to teu swallows, no matter how warm he is. If
this be given on going luto tbe stable
and he be allowed to stand and eat
hay for an hour and is tben offered
wnler, he will not drink nearly so
much as he would bad none been given
before.
The danger Is not In the first swallow, as we often hear It asserted, but
in tbe excessive quantities be will
drink if not restrained. The most
dangerous time to give a horse a full
draft is wben be bas cooled down from
fatiguing work and bas partaken of a
meal.
John Splan, tbe great trainer, writes:
"As to water, I think that a horse
should have all that he wants at all
times. A man says, 'Why, will you
give your horse water before a race'i"
i'es, before tbe race, in tbe race and
after the race and any otber time that
he wants to drink."
Do not tie your borse In a warm
stall, where he caunot get a drink for
live or six hours on a bot day, and then
take him to a pump and give him all
he wants. But give blm water often,
and In that way he will take only a
small quantity at a time.
After long, continuous exertion the
system Is greatly depleted of fluid.
Nature calls for Its replacement and
this is tbe cause of a thirst which
Is so Intense that if tbe animal Is not
restrained at the time he may drink
much more than be needs.
The general custom, almost universally followed, of giving tbe morning
meal before water Is not very objectionable either theoretically or
practically. At this time there is no
depletion of fluid; consequently tbe
horse is not very thirsty and does
not drink rapidly or excessively, and
apparently very little evil results from
this method. However, the writer
much prefers thnt the horse should
hnve nn opportunity to drluk before
the morning meal.
A professor in tbe Colorado Agricultural college suys It Is better to keep
horses, both summer nnd winter. In
au open shed, with a large tank in the
yard, than to tie them by tbe heads In
the barn.
Fruit Stones For Spring Planting.
Peach, cherry and plum stones
should be spread thin ou high, dry
ground In narrow rows and then covered wltb about six inches of fine
earth, wltb a little trench on each side
of tbe row to draw off the -surface
water. After the ground freezes a
little fine horse manure may be spread
over the frozen ground, Just enough
to cover the ground. If too much is
used It will make a harbor for mice
and ruts. Apple seed may be sown In
the Rnmc way, but will need a heavier
covering. These seed will sprout nnd
tnke root ns soon ns tbe weather turns
mild, wben tbey should be taken up
und planted out In rows.

Will Advertise Canada.
That the great congress of the International Council of Women to he
held in Toronto in June next, nt
which delegates will be present from
twenty-three countries of the world,,
will be a great advertisement for
Canada is evident. That this fact is
realized is shown by the generous
grants of money which the Dominion
and Ontario Governments have given
to the National Council of Canada,
in whose hands nre the arrangements.
Miss N. Edwards, the most succ-uss-
lul poultry fanner in Great Britain,
will be present and will give an address at the congress. Miss Edwards
has a large poultry farm at Cnaley,
which exports stock all over the-
world. Another of the speakers will

ley Ho-ticulturnl College ot Swanley,
Kent. Miss Wilkinson will speak on

CANADA AND THE
MOTHER^COUNTRY
MISCONCEPTIONS OF AMERICANS
ARE PUT TO RIGHTS
Mr. R. L. Borden, in the Standard of
Empire,   Replies   to   an   Article
Which Gives the American View of
the Relations Between Canada and
the   Mother   Country—The   True
Position of the Canadian People
London—Mr. R. L. Borden, in an
article in the Standard of    Empire
calls  attention to  striking misstatements regarding Canada, contained in
a recent trca-tise entitled, "The Struggle for American Independence." Mr
Sidney George Fisher, the author of
the treatise, declared   that   English
colonists are   "still at   best exactly
what John Adams and Hamilton over
a hundred years    ago    described as
political slaves,"' and that the control
of the British government over Canada is far more absolute than it was
before the American revolution.
Mr. Borden describes these attempts
as amazing misconceptions, and proceeds to outline the constitutional relations between Canada and the motherland, in reference to which he writes
as follows:
"Founded upon the endowment of
perfect and civil religious liberty,
maintaining the full powers of self-
government, molded by recognized
conventions attending growth and de
velopment strengthened both by senti
ment and by interest, the voluntary
and happy ties which bind Canada to
the empire, are not weaker, at least
than those which might be invoked to
retain any state within the union.
"Growth and development cannot he
stayed. New conditions would evolve
which might entail new duties ant'
new responsibilities. But the great
races to which the Canadian people
trace their ancestry have never been
prone to neglect opportunity or to
avoid responsibility, and the outlook
has broadened. In the consciousness
of her vast possessions and wonderful
resources, in realizing and utilizing
her wealth of opportunity for material
development, Canada will not fail to
turn her eyes to loftier ideals. To accomplish the wise and just solution of
social and economic problems of vital
concern and fundamental significance
to build up within their borders a
virile population animated by an intelligent patriotism to maintain high
standards nnd ideals in public and
private life, to stand for truth ond
justice, and to make peace among the
nations of the earth to march with the
Bister nations of the empire in the
vanguard of civilization; this will be
the higher task of the Canadian
people."
New Rule for Civil Servants
Ottawa.—While there may a tendency on the part of a few members of
the civil service to resist the government's new regulation regarding the
hours of labor, the majority are expected to fall in line. The new rule is
not yet brought into iorce in all departments, but where it has it has
been generally obeyed. If the attendance book is not signed before 9.15 it.
is taken away and the names of the
absentees noted. At the end of each
quarter a conduct rejiort is made to
the civil service commissioners and
the deliquents lose their chance of
promotion. As many of the civil servants had made arrangements for the
summer months which necessitated
their departure hy train before 5
o'clock, it is probable that in many
cases the rule will not be rigidly enforced until the autumn.
Experimental Farm Stations for West
Ottawa.—Three new agricultural experiment stations are to bo located in
Western Canada this summer, and
G. F. O'Hallornn, deputy minister of
agriculture, has left Ottawa for the
purpose of locating them. It was announced by the minister of agriculture
last session thnt one of these stations
would be located in Northern Aiberta
or British Columbia, one in the inlnnd
fruit district of British Columbia, and
oue on Vancouver Island. Mr. O'Hal-
loran will be accompanied by Duncan
Anderson, land expert of the department, and will lie joined in the west.
by Dr. Saunders, superintendent of
experimental farms.
Imperial Conference of Great Value
Wellington, N. Z —In addressing
the students of Canterbury college,
Lord Plunkett, governor of New Zealand, said he believed thnt the conference to be held in London to discuss
tiie question of imperial defence will
prove to be the most valuable colonial
conference ever held if it is true that
the spirit of unity and real readiness
for self sacrifice existed in the empire
to-day as he believed it did.

After Spending Twenty Years at Molo.
kai Island Patients Found Free
From the Disease
Honolulu—After some of them had
Bpent twenty years of their life in' the
leper settlement on the island of Molo-
kai, ten supposed lepers were declared
to be free of the disease after examination. Eleven persons were brought to
Honolulu for examination at the instance of the legislative committee.
Two are boys of six and seven years,
but the others vary in age from 27
to 79.
Only one of the eleven re-examined
was found to have leprosy, hut some
of the older freed patients will petition to he returned to the island of
Molokai because they have been shut
out from the world and their friends
for so long that they have nowhere
else to go.
A few of the patients were sent to
the settlement before the bacteriological test for leprosy was discovered,
and it is believed in some, cases a natural cure has been effected.
Nineteen other supposed lepers will
be brought from the settlement for reexamination in a short time.

Most Representative Gathering of
Newspaper Men Ever Held, at
Which One Thousand Journalists
of United Kingdom Meet in Honor
of Colonial Delegates to the Imperial Press Conference
London.—The most representative
gathering of .British newspaper men
ever held occurred here on Saturday
evening at the Garden club at Shep-
pard's Bush, when one thousand journalists of the United Kingdom gave a
banquet in honor of ,the 57 colonial
delegates to tile imperial press congress that opened at the foreign
office on Monday. While the
Londoners predominated, every section of the British Isles sent a delegate to welcome the colonial visitors,
who have come to London from all
corners of the empire.
Three pnncipal subjects to be discussed are: "Cable news and press inter-communication," when Lord Crewe
will preside, and Postmaster General
Buxton and Austin Chamberlain will
be among the speakers.
"The press and the empire," under
the presidency of the first lord of the
admiralty, Reginald McKenna, who
will be supported by the foreign secretary, Sir Edward Grey, Lord Cromer,
Lord Esher and Alfred Lyttleton.
There will be a second discussion of
this same subject under the chairmanship of A. J. Balfour, assisted by War
Secretary Haldane and Lord Roberts,
and "Journalism and literature," with
Lord Morley in the chair, and Augustine Birrell, Winston Churchill and
Lord Milner among the speakers.
The colonial visitors, rivetting their
attention on the first of these three
subjects, will make a strong plea for
the reduction of cable rates and the
laying of a government cable across
the Atlantic, as suggested by Mr.
Lemieux, the postmaster general of
Canada, thus linking up the United
Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New
Zealand by an all-red line. A movement will be started also for the establishment of an imperial press association and the interchange of news between the colonies and England.
The arrangements for the entertainment of the visitors are varied and
include a garden party for them by
tbe Prince and Princess of Wales,
wliich will be attended by the King
ami Queen; an army review at Alder
shot and a naval review at Spithead,
this last to be followed by a fortnight's tour of England and Scotland.
Lord Burnham presided at the
banquet. Lord Roseberry delivered
the speech of welcome to the pressmen
and the reply was made by Sir Hugh
Graham, of Montreal.
.In his address, Lord Roseberry, re.
ferring to the forthcoming visit to the
fleet nt Spithead by the delegates,
characterized the present situation in
Europe as ominous. There was an absence of questions, which ordinarily
might be expected to lead to war, he
said, yet the threatening and overpowering preparations for war were unprecedented in history. He was confident of the powers of England to
meet any reasonable conjunction of
powers, but when he saw this bursting out of navies he was uneasy regarding the outcome.
Lord Roseberry asked the delegates
to carry the message that responsibility rest on every man of the empire,
and to tell the colonists how Europe
is arming and the greatness of the
pressure on this little island.
Sir Hugh Graham, proprietor of the
Montreal Star, responding to Lord
Roseberry's toast, "Our Guests," snid
that tiie colonial press was responsible
for the wave of sentiment wliich is
sweeping the outlying portions of thi!
empire and marks an important era
in the attitude of the people towards
imperial interests.
Canada, he said, for long years hnd '
sponged   on   the mother country for
protection, and was too mean to offer
to pay its share, hut a change was im-1
pending.      Inspired by the pluck of j
New Zealand  nnd  Australia,     which
were always in the van. Canada was
now sending delegates to discuss the j
question of the defence    of    Great
Britain.   If wise statesmanship gov, !
crned the delegates in the discussion, j
it meant u new and important step in
the safeguarding of imperial interests.
Canada at Seattle
Winnipeg.—A magnificent exhibition of Canadian grains in the sheaf
which was prepared at Winnipeg, is
being shown at the Seattle exposition.
A carload wns sent early in the season
from the exhibit branch of the immigration ofllce, and the display at the
coast city is in charge of the department of agriculture. The Canadian
Paoific railway is also exhibiting
grains grown along its lines.
A few days ago a carload of exhibits
wns sent to .1. Obed Smith, the British
commissioner, for distribution in
Great Britain. The advertising work
of tills Winnipeg department cue.-;
along steadily, and the output of exhibits which are prepared by several
men, are distributed broadcast
throughout the world.
FOR   THE    PEACE   OF   EUROPE
RUSSIANS  WILL   NOT   HAVE   IT
Meeting of Emperor William and Emperor Nicholas Will Probably
Have Good Results
St. Petersburg.—A meeting between
Emperor William and Emperor
Nicholas has been arranged and will
take place iu the waters of the Finnish
gulf.
The exact date of the meeting will
probably be June 17. The German i
emperor will arrive on the imperial!
yacht Hoheuzzollern, while the Em- \
peror Nicholas will be aboard the j
Standart, accompanied by M. lswol-
sky, the foreign minister, and Admiral
Voeyodsky, minister of marine.
The news of the proposed interview
between   the   sovereigns   coming   so ■
soon after the settlement of the Bal- [
kan crisis, has aroused eager specu-1
lation among the diplomats at    St.
Petersburg.   It was supposed in some I
quarters    that    German    mediation, i
which had ended the crisis, had left j
more heritage   of   bitterness    which
would   estrange   the   two monarchs 1
and lead Russia to identify herself i
more   closely   with Great   Britain's j
continental policy.
The meeting, which, according lo
some reports, has been arranged on
the initiative of Emperor Nicholas, is
taken to mean that Russia prefers an
amicable arrangement with Germany
to the doubtful issue of an antagonistic policy. If, Emperor William also
meets President Fallieres, as reported
from Berlin, the European situation
may be regarded .as entering upon a
decidedly peaceful phase.
After meeting the German Emperor,
Emperor Nicholas will go to Stockholm, probably on June 6. He will
then return to Peterhoff, where during the early days of July he will rp.
ceive King Frederick of Denmark.
His majesty will then proceed to Poltava. The emperor will then depart
by sea for a visit to France and England, and probably Italy. The plans
of this trip are held in the deepest
secrecy, but elaborate preparations
ore already being taken to prevent
tampering with the railway lines to
Poltava. Forty-eiglft thousand troops
will be stationed along the route dur-
ine the journey.
The military attaches of the various
embassies and legations have been invited to accompany his majesty, but
no diplomatic representatives.
Premier Cannot Get the People's Representatives to Support the
Church and State Idea
St. Petersburg.—Premier Stolypin
spoke in the duma in defence of the
government's draft of a law dealing
with the matter of changing from one
faith to„ another and against the modifications removing all restrictions introduced in committee. He said that
the emperor, as head of the orthodox
church, could not suffer backsliding
from the orthodox to non-Christian
beliefs, and that if such amendments
are incorporated the bill would be
vetoed. Continuing, he defined the relations between church and state. He
conceded that the church enjoyed full
independence in matters of creed and
dogma, but insisted on state control
His speech was a brilliant effort, but
it fell upon cold ears, and brought out
no applause. The premier for the first
time in the history of the third duma
found himself fighting for a lost cause
before an adverse house.
The classing by the premier of persons of the Jewish faith and Mohammedans with heathens excited indignation among the Centrists and' Progressives, many of whom are Jews and
Mohammedans.
Canadian Export Grain Trade
Vancouver, B. C—The Canadian
wheat export trade has just been advised that severe drought conditions j
exist in Mexico, with the result that
there is every probability of a large
export of wheat to that country
through the port of Vancouver during
the fall. This wheat will be Alberta
red winter, and it may be expected to
start moving shortly after the harvest,
provided the Mexican government reduces the duty as it did last season.
.Recording to the estimate made by
transportation companies who have
been recently in touch with both the
Mexican market and the Canadian export trade between 20,000 and 30.000
tons of wheat will be shipped to Mexico if the import duty of thnt country
is reduced. ft is reported that largely
because of the expectation of a pood
grain carrying trade between Vancouver and Mexico tiie Canadian
Mexican Steamship company operating he steamers Lonsdale and Georgia,
is negotiating for two larger steamers
which will he better suited to the
trade wliich has been developed by the
pioneer vessels of the route.
Macleod Bridge Opened
Macleod—The new $50,000 bridge
across the Old Man fiver was formally
opened on Tuesday afternoon by

Wheat Shipned from  East to Texas
New York.—For the first time in his
tory wheat jins been shipped back
from New York to the west for con.
sumntion. Recent inquiries hnve been
received from ns far nway as Texas
for New York red wheat. Already two
boat loads are en route from here to
Buffalo, four more nre loading, nnd
some shipments hnve been made bv
rail. This unusual action is made
possible by the great, scarcity of cosh
wheat all through the west.
Georgian Bay Canal Far in the Future

issued, with government control of
rates and the option of taking over the
canal at cost at any time. The government will adhere to the policy already announced by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, of declining to incur further heavy
obligations until the revenue is more
buoyant.
Buffalo Nearly All Corralled
Spokane, Wash.—Howard Douglas
and Alexander Ayotte, the former superintendent of Western Canadian
parks and the latter Canadian immigration agent, have arrived in Mis.
soula from the Pablo range, where
they have been superintending the
rounding up of the herd of 300
buffalo which they expect to ship to
the Canadian parks from Ravalli
Most of the buffalo are now corralled
on the. range, and, according to Mr
Douglas, the work of hauling the hig
corral at Ravalli, from which point
shipment will be made, will be started
Saturday and the herd will be placed
on tiie curs in about two weeks.
The hauling will be done by teams
The buffalo go directly to the buffalo
park, 120 miles east of Edmonton, Al
bcrln, and where the Canadian govern
ment now has a herd. The whole of
this bison herd was sold by Pablo
early last year, after the United
States had refused to take the animals
to stock the national park. Last year
the herd broke loose after being herded to one corral, and it was deemed
expedient to adopt different measures
in rounding up the bunch this year.
Cannibalism Justified
London.—A   Scientific   justification
for cannibalism  was  propounded  by
Dr. F. Gowland Hopkins in nn address
at the royal institution.
"What would be the most efficient
protein for men?" lie asked.
"Clearly, although not a point of
prncticnl dietetics, the most sensible
person in this connection is the ennni
bill. In consuming his own kind he
is eating exactly the right stuff
Though it may seem a gruesome experience, a worker in Heidelberg bas
just lately testified to thut point. He
found that a dog. when fed with dog
was able to do with a much smaller
quantity of protein thnn when fed
with other protein whatever. Ther;- is
u chemistry of species, nnd the nearer
the two species nf animal are together
the more necessary does the chemistry
of their bodies agree,"
Conciliation Board Preparing Report
Macleod.—The conciliation board
has finished its investigations at the
different mines in Alberta nnd eastern
British Columbia. They decided that
conditions in Canmore, Bnnkhead and
Lethbridge were not different from
those which prevailed in the mines
which were examined. For that reason they thought that a visit of examination would be unnecessary.

SHIP GRAIN BY
MEXICAN ROUTE
POSSIBILITIES   OF   NEW   ROUTE
NOW BEING INVESTIGATED
Government is Sending a Customs In-
spector   to   Supervise Regulations
Regarding the Bonding of Canadian
Goods in Transit Through Mexico-
May Ship Grain by New Route to
Very Good Advantage
Montreal.—The possibilities  of  the
Tehuantepec railway over tho Isthmus
of Mexico, as a substitute for Canada's
transcontinental freight carrying system, especially wheat, dawned upon
the government, and they have sent a
customs inspector, Mr. David Martin
of Toronto, to supervise tho customs
regulations regarding the bonding of
Canadian goods   in   transit through
Mexico.   He left on the Bornu from
Montreal.
On the Atlantic coast the Elder-
Dempster line has been subsidized by
the government to maintain a service
to the Port of Mexico, and the Canada,
Mexico and Pacific Steamship company on the western coast, thus completing, with the Tehuantepec railway
a half loop between Montreal and
Vancouver. Mr. Campbell, manager
of the local agency of the Elder-Dempster line, sai<! that tons of freight that
formerly went from eastern ports
through Montreal to the west, were
now being shipped on the Bornu nnd
other vessels of the Mexican service
through Mexico nnd up the Pacific
coast to their western destination.
Mr. Campbell said that Montreal
merchants were now shipping their
goods over the new route and so saving from 25 to 30 per cent, on freight
rates.
He pointed out that owing to the
high transcontinental rates manufacturers in the east hove little chance
to compete successfully with European ogencies in Western Canada
They sent their goods around thn
Horn, nnd although the shipment
takes longer, it is much cheaper, and
enobles them to underbid Canadians
on Canadian territory.
The Tehuantepec National Railway
was constructed by Sir Weetman Pearson and the Mexican government
across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans,
a distance of 1C0 miles. No less
than six lines of steamers are now
being operated on the Pncific const
lict'"een South and North America
making Saiinn Cruz their terminus,
transporting thousands of tons of
canto destined to Canada, United
States, Great Britain nnd the continent.
Grand Forks to Winnipeg by Steamer
Winnipeg.—A lnrge party of business men from Grand Forks and other
North Dakota towns arrived here on
Tuesday evening by stenmcr, and were
welcomed by mnny river craft and
thousands of citizens. It was the
first trip made hy steamer between
Grand Forks anil Winnipeg in twenty-
eight yenrs. The object, of the trip ,is
to impress the United States Congress
with the feasibility of the Red river
as nn avenue of commerce, and to
secure a large annroprintion for its
improvement. With St. Andrews

Thinking of

"Whatever you do. Sue," said Dr,
Jobn Murray's, wife, half laughing,
halt angry, "don't you ever marry an
abseiiluilnded man. A man that Is always thinking of something else,' like
that big husbund of mine, may be wonderfully guud at his profession, be-
cause that's what be's always thinking about, but he is surely a domestic
trial at times."
Mrs. .Murray laughed, ber III nature
having evaporated completely under
the beat of her little outburst Her
visitor, Susuu Uurlund, luugbed witb
her, for Dr, Murray's wonderful rents
In bis fits of obstruction were famous.
"Wby. Sue," continued Mrs. Murray,
luughiug gayly at the recollection, "do
you remember wben I bad that touch
of rheumatic fever? One night when
1 was burning with thirst 1 woke John
and said to blm, 'John, if you don't
get me a drink of water quick 1 don't
know tbat I'll live till morning.'
"He got up. sort of dazed, walked
over to the mantelpiece and came back
to me holding out un empty vase. 1
wanted a drink of water thnt much
'that 1 bung on to my pullence uutll
he was wide awake and knew what 1
was talking about. Tben he went to
the refrigerator aud came buck witb a
gloss brimming full of good cold water. But, If you will believe It, Sue,
he Just stood tbere looking ut me, and
before 1 could sny u word that man
drank every drop of tbat water blmself wltb me glaring holes through
bim. I declare, It makes me angry to
this day!"
Mrs; Murray ran to tbe foot of the
atalra aud called out; "Hurry up, now,
John! Sue and I are both wultiug.
You will Und your evening clothes laid
'out for you in tbe bedroom, aud there
Isn't any time to lose."
Miss Sue aud Mrs. Jobn sat down to
talk. They exhausted their store of
.hew gossip after awhile nnd began to
ttdget "Goodness," said Mrs. Murray
at last, looking at her watch, "that
man must have done something foolish! It can't be taking blm all this
time to dress!"
Or, John bad done nothing foolish.
He had done something ratber wise.
Be waa sound asleep In bed.
Miss Sue overheard some very active
and excited conversation carried on
exclusively by Mrs. Murray. At last
'tbe deep bass of her busband resounded. "My dear," sold Dr. Jobn, "don't
you know anything about the wonderfully powerful control tbat habit bas
■over all the species of tbe animal kingdom? When I began to undress wasn't
It natural for me to keep right on and
get luto bed? Of course it was,"
"No, flue; don't you ever marry an
abeentmlnded man," said Mrs. Murray
•Impressively when they drove away at
last with Dr. Jobn safely opposite
them.
"Aa long aa he Isn't too obsentmlnd-
«d to attend the wedding, Sue," chuckled Dr. Jobn, "you tuke him, provided
hla name Is Dick Kendall."
Hue was glad tbat tbe darkness bid
i her blushes.
"Dick is going to do something great
In chemistry, I do believe," suld Dr.
'John. "There's his compound of phos-
•pho"-
"A wife wants something besides
your old phosphates and otber III smelling things." said Mrs. Murray. "Dick
Kendall is as bad as you are. Be's
Just aa likely os not to come to the
dance tonight wltb his old laboratory
coat on."
Dick Kendall did not fulfill Mrs.
Murray's dark prophecy literally, but
be did so In effect It Is true tbat he
wna soberly and blamelessly clad In
ilia evening clothes, being correctly attired even to the tie, but tbe tont en-
aemble was somewbut marred by the
sad fart thut he had a potent leather
pump on one foot and a bright russet
shoe on the other.
Sue blushed, and then she flushed,
and then she grew angry as tbe titters
and smiles ran around tbe room wben
unconscious Dick hurried forward to
meet ber.
She was not a young woman given
to exaggerate trifles, but she was not
a stole philosopher either. No doubt It
Is a small thing tn have one's evening
pleasure marred u bit, but It seems unduly Importunt nt the time.
Luckless Dick was doomed to further disgrace. He hnd barely repaired
the disaster of the shoes by sending o
messenger posthaste to his home for
the other pump when something worse
happened.
During a waits, when Mlaa Sue was
his partner, somebody brushed against
Dick. There wus n sharp crackling of
broken glass, and the next instant the
couple wns wreuthed In beautiful violet smoke thut gruduully filled tbe
room.
Nobody hnd leisure or desire to observe tbe beauty of Its color though.
It wus so Instantly suffocating tbut
tbere wns a mud, wild rush for doors
and French windows.
The sccldent lilted Sue's cup, and It
brimmed over-only a little, but too
much. In her linger she stumped her
font and cried; "Dick Kendall, your
abseiitmlniledness apparently extends
only to me und not to your profession.
It Is plain that you care more for
chemistry thnn for me, and It would
he a thousand pities to disturb your
devotion."
She stripped tbe ring from her fln'.-er.
nnd be look it In bewildered silence.
Before he could reply she had turned
her bnck and the neit moment was
walking up the corridor with Ulck'j
pet aversion. Charles Maule, whom
everybody called "the model Maul,"

Miss Pup's words had been uttered
In the hearing of many persons. Next
day the news of the broken engagement was all over town
Dick tried to placate the girl, but
with characteristic lack of policy ba
did not wait for her anger to cool on*.
The result wus that tbe breach seemed
dual to him. In his simplicity he believed every angry word she said and
did not realize thut tbe girl wus eager
to forgive us soon us she hud puulsbed
blm a little.
Dick was absentmlnded about little
things, hut nut about great ones. Wltb
ii heart full to breukiug, he made bis
preparations to leave the place.
A week afterward Sue stopped at
Dr. Murray's bouse to accompany
Mrs. Murray and tbe doctor on a drive
Into the country. Dr. Jobn was not
tbere when she arrived.
"1 hope he hasn't gone to bed
again," said Sue, smiling. Sbe was
cheerful, for sbe hnd made up ber
mind to write to Dick, forgiving bim
and asking blm frankly to forgive her,
"No." said Mrs. Jobn. "Didn't I
tell you where be was going tbls morning? He went to drive Dick Kendall
down to the harbor to see blm off on
the Viking."
Susan Harland's half opened lips and
startled eyes showed ber surprise.
"Didn't you know?" said Mrs. Murray, embarrassed. "Dick Is going on
a cruise around the world wltb hla
friend Randall, wbo bought that big
yacht Viking this spring."
Susan sprang up, casting aside all
pretense, like tbe honest, warm hearted girl she was. "Kate," Bhe cried, "I
can't let blm got   1 cannot!   1 cannot!"
Mrs. Murray caught tbe girl In ber
arms. "Darling," she said, wltb a sob,
"1 thought tbat It was all over between you."
"I was wicked," said Sue, "As If I
would lose Dick for all tbe absent-
mindedness tn tbe world! Oh, Kate,
we must stop him! 1 don't care what
people think."
"Sue, dear," said Mrs. Murray, "it is
too late. Look!" Sbe led Sue to a
window tbat commanded u view across
a bluff and far to sea. Some miles out
a great steam yacht was steaming toward the horizon.
"1 must - cable to bim at once—at
once!" said Sue passionately. For a
few minutes Mrs. Murray made no reply, but beld her arms around tbe girl
and stroked her hair,
"You must be patient, dear, now,
and plucky for awhile. Tbe Viking ia
bound to the south Pacific, and we
shall not be able to reach ber for some
time-perhaps for six months."
She led the sobbing girl Into tha
library, bestowed ber comfortably In
an easy chair and wisely left ber alone
to have ber cry and ber trouble by
herself till the first keenness should
have worn off.
She bad scarcely re-entered tha
drawing mom before she beard her
husband driving up to the door. A
moment afterward there entered two
men, looking very, very sheepish and
guilty. They were Dr. John and—Dick
Kendall.
"Now, don't scold and don't laugh,
Kate," Implored Dr. John. "I'll tell yon
what happened. I picked Dick up all
right at hla lodgings, and we did all
you told us to do, saw that everything
was locked up and counted his baggage and made sure tbat be had bis
money In his pockets. See. here's your
memorandum, all checked off. But,
Kate," added Dr. Jobn, wltb a twinkle, half humorous, half ashamed,
"you forgot to add on the memorandum that Dick waa to be delivered on
board the Viking."
"And so, you know," Interposed
Dick, eager to divert blame from bis
friend's bead. "I got to telling John
about a new test for wblte blood corpuscles, and we got interested and
stopped for Just a few minutes at tbe
board of health laboratory."
"And then, as usual, you forgot all
about o little tblug like a trip around
the world," Mrs. Murray burst out
But, strangely enough, there waa a delighted smile on her face.
Taking Dick Kendall by the shoulder, she pushed bim toward the library. "Now, yon greatruseless child,"
,611111 she, with her eyes shining, "yon
go In there and sit down for a moment. I bave something to aay to tha
doctor."
She closed tbe door behind blm and
run to Dr. Jobn, clapping ber bands
softly. Dr. John didn't look at all absentmlnded when she whispered to
hlm, bnt gazed at the door with as
much eagerness nnd Joy tn bis face as
there wos in hers.
They woited a quarter of an boar
with highly commendable patience.
Then Mrs. Murray walked to the door
aud knocked, but not before she had
beard Dick Kendall's deep voice:
"Think of something else? Sue, I
couldn't thing of anything except that
I hod Inst you."
"Oh!" come Sne's voice. "And bow
about ibe test that made you forget
the yachtr
"Well." replied Dick. "I might forget o little thing like tbnt, but you're
not n little thing except In size."
And before Ihe door opened Sue said:
"Slop, yon henr! You've nearly knocked my but off."

city; and in that connection it is interesting to note tbat the Parliamentary brother first knew of the selection
of the younger brother to be an official
of the Dominion from a paragraph in
a newspaper.
Mr. G. A. Harris wos educated at
the public schools in his native city
and \afterwards matriculated at the
Brantford Collegiate Institute, but
soon after leaving school he was compelled to leave Canada for u couple
of years owing to ill-health. On his
return he started business at Bow
Park form, neor Brentford, as a
pickler. This business he sold out
after a couple of years, and then devoted his attention to the cheese
business, opening a branch in Detroit, Michigan, which grew so satisfactorily that he was compelled to
go to that city to reside. There again
he was able to dispose of his business
at profit, and then he entered the
steam specialty business, which also
was a success until throat trouble
compelled him to go west. He located in Vernon, British Columbia,
where after doing well in real estate
he became the proprietor and editor
of the Okanogon newspaper, which
he hns since conducted. He is full
of enthusiasm for his new work and
is certain to make a creditable representative of Canada in the land
of Nippon.
Confessions of a Duke.
The exhibition of the clothing, outfitting, und allied trades which was
opened by the Duke of Argyll at the
Agricultural Hall, London, is not
primarily a display of the fashions
that are to be in vogue during the
season of 1909.
It is not so much the affair of Dover
street and Savile Row, W., as of Cannon street, E.C., and the wool and
cotton weaving districts of Yorkshire
and Lancashire. But it gives none
the less interesting insights into the
wholesale aspect of'the great business
of clothing the nation. Cloth, silk,
cotton, linen, straw, the materials of
all kinds which tailors, shirt-makers,
haberdashers, and hatters employ are
shown in huge and interesting variety, and there are rows and rows of
Btalls whereon ore displayed examples of the factory-prpduced, ready-
made garments in which the mass of
the population — men, women and
children—are clothed.
The Duke of Argyll declared that *it
gave him the more satisfaction to be
present inasmuch as he had been told
by his friends that he was one of the
worst-dressed men in London. From
that reproach he could free himself
by pointing to the fact that he had
been invited to open that exhibition,
although that might lay him open to
the rejoinder that he had only been
invited to serve as an awful example.
As nn illustration of the wide range
of material for clothing purposes pro- ]
duced in British lands the duke mentioned  that he had recently met a I
friend wearing  a  particularly smart
necktie which  looked  like' silk, but,
which, his friend told him, was made
in Canada from wood pulp.    Before '
long men's coats and ladies' gowns
might be made from wood pulp, but
in the meantime he hoped every encouragement would be given to British wool.
Queer Superstitions of the Veddas of
Ceylon.
Dr. C. G. Seligman, writing in
Travel and Exploration, throws some
interesting light oh the beliefs and
superstitions of the Veddas, the
strange hill tribes and cave dwellers
of Ceylon: "Although there is no
clearly formulated idea of a death
contagion, the rapidity with which all
Veddos leave the place where a death
hns occurred and avoid it for years
shows that some evil quality is, associated with dissolution. According
to most Veddas, the spirit of every
dead man, woman or child becomes
a 'yaka' (plural 'yaku') within a few
days after death. Some Veddas,
however, say that when ordinary
folk die they cease utterly and that
a surviving part, which becomes a
yuka, exists only in the case ol
especially strong, energetic or skilled
men, who have shown their strength
ol character in this world or who
have had the power of calling the
yaku during their lifetime.
"Since each Vedda community consists of a small number of families,
usually related by blood and marriage, the yaku of the recent dead—
culled collectively the ne yaku—are
supposed to Btand toward the surviv-
'np members of the group in the
lifiht of friends and relatives, who,
if well treated, will continue theii
loving kindness to their survivors,
and only if neglected will show theii
disgust and anger by withdrawing
assistance or even becoming actively
hostile; hence it is generally considered neceBsary to present an offer-
ine. to the newly dead, usually within a week or two of death. This offer,
ine must consist of cooked rice and
coconnut milk, the food that every
Vedda esteems above oil other, bui
bete! leaves and oreca nuts-are often
added.
"In eBch community there is one
man, called 'kanurale,' or 'duggana-
wa,' who hns the power and know]-
e'*<*e requisite to call the yaku, and
this man calls upon the yaka of tho
recentlv dead man to come and take
the offering. The yaka comes, and
the knpurale becomes possessed by
the yaka of thedeod men. who speaks
through his mouth in hoarse, guttural
accents, Btating that he approves the
offering and will assist. biB kinfolk in
hunting and often definitely indicating the direction in which the next
hunting party should go. One or mora
of the near relatives rnay a)so become
possessed. Soon after the snirit leaves
the knnurnle th« rice is eaten by the
assembled folk."
CHAPEL FOR THISTLE.
QUAINT EPITAPHS.

Ancient Scottish Order Wants a
Church For Its Knights.
The intimation by Lord Knollys on
1 behalf of His Majesty the King, as
[head of the Order of the Knights of
j.lhe Thistle, that the knights desire
to have a chapel or Btalls of their
own in the capital of Scotland is
much less surprising than the fact
that they have never possessed either.
True thnt there is a tradition, or
legend rather, about their having at
some bygone time met in St. Andrews
"in the ancient chapel of the order,"
but there is absolutely no ground for
believing this. It is only one of several myths connected with the order.
At one time very great antiquity
was claimed for "the Most Ancient
and Most Noble Order of the Thistle."
Nay, it was ever said to have had a
miraculous foundation. The story
was thot in the year 810 a certain
King of Scotland named Achains
while fighting against the English
heard Ihe voice of St. Andrew announce that the Scots would be victorious; thnt the issue of the battle
was as predicted; that Achaius vowed thnt the cross of St. Andrew
should be blazoned on the flag of
Scotland for ever, and that he found,
ed an order of chivalry in honor if
the event.
The real founder of the order was
James VII. of Scotland and II. of
England, one of his objects being lo
try to secure the favor of severai of
the leading Scottish nobles. Curiously enough the pretence of immense
antiquity was kept up; indeed, the
letters patent of James, dated May
29, 1C37, was largely responsible for
the long continuance of the fiction.
These set forth that "hi:- Majesty's
royal predecessor, Achaius, King of
Scots (of glorious memory), did institute the Most Ancient and Most Noble
Order nl the Thistle consisting of the
Sovereign and tvclve knights brethren in allusion to . :r blessed Saviour
and His twelve apostles" in coinhiem-
oratimi of the "signal victory" already referred to, and that the order
had continued "in great glory and
splendor for many hundreds cl
years." James declared it to be his
intention to utilize the royal chapel
at Holyrood Palace as the chapel ol
the order, and a plan was prepared
by Sir William Bruce. His plan
represents tiie knights stalls, six on
each side, with the throne of the

celebrated his seventy-third birthday.
Sir Edward exhibited his first Academy picture when he was twenty-six,
and five years later he mode his reputation by that famous painting,
"Israel in Egypt." It is said of this
picture that when a fnmoiiB engineer

nothing stronger. One of the farmers,,
who knew by experience what to expect, had provided himself with a
flask of rum and, unknown to a brother farmer, poured a generous quantity into the glass of milk which his
neighbor hud elected to drink. In
due time the unsuspecting farmer put
the glass to his lips and seemed to
enjoy it so that he never stopped till
he finished it. Then he turned to his-

A Marvelous Waterfall.
One of the highest waterfalls on
earth and the highest, perhaps, when
the volume of water is considered, is
the Kaieteur fall, on the Potato river,
EBsequibo, British Guiana. The height
is 741 feel, nearly five times that of
Niagara. The width varies from 35(1
to 400 feet in the rainy season and
the depth of water passing over similarly ranges from a few feet to 20.
Even in extremely dry seasons the
river has a depth of 35 feet a quarter
ef a mile above the fall.

OVERTAXED NERVES
. A DISTRESS SIGNAL
Tbe Trouble Can Only be Cured by Enriching the Blood Supply
When your nervous system is ex-
hausted the trouble makes itself evident in many ways. You feel always
fatigued and unfit for work. Severe
headaches distract you; your back is
weak; you sleep badly; your appetite
is uncertain; you are nervous and irritable, and after any exercise you
■tremble und perspire excessively. If
•the trouble is not checked your case
goes from bad to worse until you feel
that your condition is hopeless and
that insanity is threatened.
Your nerves are calling for help.
They are starved because they demand-horn the blood more nourishment than it can supply. New rich
blood is the secret of nerve strength,
and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills tor Pale
People cure nervous disorders because
they feed the weok, exhausted nerves
with rich, red blood. The case of
Mrs. Emma Hall, of Hamilton, Ont.,
furnishes proof that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills will cure even the most
stubborn cases of nerve exhaustion.
Mrs. Hall was left a widow and was
•forced to, work in a mill to maintain
"herself and her two little children.
"She bravely faced the battle of life,
though she hnd never had to conform
. to such conditions before. Notwithstanding the splendid spirit she displayed the work played havoc with a
delicate constitution, and some years
ago -Mrs., Hall noticed signs, in herself of a nervous collapse. She consulted a doctor, who gave her some
medicine and told her she "would be
•all rjght in a few days." But relief
did,'not come, and it was finally a
daily occurrence for her to faint at
her work. These fainting spells
quickly developed into pVonounced
hysteria and chronic irritability, and
Mrs.,, Hall says that death would
have been a relief. She consulted several doctors but got no help, and she
felt that she was almost bordering*
ou insanity. In this condition Bhe
was advised to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. .Grasping ot even the possibility of heln she decided to do so.
After taking three boxes sho actually
found some: improvement, and from
that time | on this improvement was
steady and increasing daily until
after a few months she felt' the cure
was comnlete. She says:—"Dr. Wil-i

THE ARMY HORSE.
How Tommy Atkins' Mounts Are
Broken In and Trained.
"Breaking in a young horse forms
the best possible training for a rider
who aspires to become an accomplished horseman," writes a contributor
to the May "Windsor Magazine," in
an article on "The Education of an
Army Horse." "It cannot," he Bays,
"even be attempted by men who are
not thoroughly at home in the saddle,
and who cannot carry it out with
patience and good temper. Since the
men required for this duty, have to
be dyaiyn from, the ranks of. the squadrons, a great deal of careful'management is required to train and select
suitable men under efficient instructors, and to organize the carrying on
of the ordinary routine work as well.
If the remounts join a regiment at
the close of the manoeuvre season,
the six winter months can be devoted
to their education, so that most of
them are fit for the ranks in the following summer. But if, as often happens to our cavalry regiments, they
get a batch of 60 young horses thrown
at them in the middle of the squadron training, at a time, too, when trie
ranks are full of young, soldiers, all
of whom require daily work in the
field, and few or none are fit to be
entrusted with a young horse, then
the task of the commanding officer
becomes well-nigh impossible. .
i "The British Government has no
studs tor young horses, but buys
them as they are wanted-^or, rather,
when the need for them becomes very
acute. Even in times of peace the
remounts are posted to the regiments
at irregular intervals and at varying
ages. The regimental authorities
hove to do the best they can with
the means at their disposal to train
their horses. Sinoe the best riders
are required for the purpose, the
training of the soldiers is necessarily
interfered with, because the best meii
in the rankB of: the squadron have
to be left in Iron) fieltl work to ride
remounts." ;"i

Starving In St Helena..
What is to be the fate of St. Helena*
is the question asked by the Hon
H. W. Solomon, of the executive council of the island, who has issued a
plea on behalf of the distressed inhabitants.
"It is over two yearB since the garrison was removed," sayB Mr. Solomon in a letter to A. G. Wise, secretary of the St. Helena committee,
"and although we appreciate the action of the Colonial Office in giving
a subsidy to start a hemp mill, as
well as a grant for teaching t|ie, girls
lace making, yet much more remains
to be done. At the request of former
governors the farmers improved the
breed of their live stock, being assured that they would always be required for. military purposes. , The
result is that the farmers are to-day
left with some 2,000 cattle on their
hands which are practically useless,
as on account of the great poverty,
the people have no money to purchase meat. These cattle alao are a
great impediment to j the growing of
hemp, occupying pasture lands which
would otherwise be used for hemp
cultivation. Money is also needed for
the upkeep of the roads.
"Large numbers of children are unprovided for. There is, besideB, tbe
question of the children who are
growing up, and for whom emnloy-
ment must be found when they leave
school."

which has played such a conspicuous
port in British history, is to be saved
from decay.
The English Football. ■
Few people have any idea of the
amount of labor expended in the
making of o football. The leather
used is "split" cowhide, ordinary
cowhide being too thick for the regulation weight. Previous to splitting
the leather hos been soaking in the
tan pits for ten or twelve months.
The "split" hide is well softened with
tubbin and then passed to the cutter,
who cuts out the various sections,
which, sewed together, make a perfectly round ball, The bladder is
made of Para rubber. This in inflated by machinery, and the ball is then'
laced up. Finally it passes through
the hands of the shaper, who pots
down ony inennallties in the seams
or contour of the ball.

daughter of his host. "I wonder what
we're here in the wor'.i Ior?" asked
the little boy. His companion, thinking of a reason lesson, answered gently, "We are put here to help others,
of course." ."TJ-m!" exclaimed the
little boy, after a moment's thought;

Playing With Prisoners.

Elevation and - Depression of Water
Have Been Noticed.
Less than four years ago. Prof.
Loudon, then president of Toronto
University, discovered evidences of
minute tides, or seiches, on Lake Huron, similor to those long ago observed on Lake Geneva, und other old-
world land-locked waters. Of an entirely different nature were the disturbances reported one day recently
from Lake Erie, when the level of tbe
harbor at Buffalo was alternately lowered and raised as much as four feet.
Changes in atmospheric pressure
causes this phenomenon. The Weather Bureau says it is not an unprecedented experience in the history of
the Great Lakes, as the following extract from The Toronto Mirror, of Oot.
3. 1845, will show:
"On Saturday last a most extra-,
ordinary occurrence was noticed in
the lake at Cobourg. Shortly before
noon some gentlemen walking on the
wharf happening to cast their eyes
upon the jynter between the piers,
were struck with the very unusual
appearance of a strong current or tide
as it were, setting directly.out to sea.
It;seemed aa if the whole lake were
going- bodily away. In A few minutes
nearly a third part of the inner harbor, with a corresponding portiqn of
the shore on either side,, waa left entirely bare, when suddenly the tide
turned and came us rapidly back
again, filling the harbor at least two
feet higher than it ever was before.
This extraordinary action of the lake
was continued at regular intervals of
every eight or ten minutes until after
dark, the highest tide noticed being
a little before six in the evening,
when the water rose seven inches
higher than it was last spring, and
just two feet and an inch above its
present level. We understand the
same occurrence was noticed at other
places on the lake, and hear that ut
Port Hope, the effect was so great
that the steamer Princess Royal could
not get into the harbor at all, running
aground when more than her length
outside the entrance to thepiers. The
cause'of so extraordinary a phenomenon is at present a matter of conjecture, but the general opinion seems
to be that it could only have been
produced by a violent earthquake in
some part of the continent which we
shall. probably soon hear of:"
This story of The Mirror was copied
from The Cobourg Star, and the date
was either September 20; or 27, 1845.
Whatever the cnuse—and the earthquake theory was probably not confirmed—it is evident that these tidal
phenomena on the lakes do not occur
very frequently; and the harbors of
our great inland waterway will never
compete in spectacular changes with
Bay oi Fundy ports, where the water
is either surging over the wharves,
or receding beyond the horizon lines,
leaving the shipping stranded in the
mud.
Captain Tom at Ottawa.
Captain. Tom Wallace, M.P. for
Centre York, and son of the, famous
Hon. N. Clarke Wallace, baa rapidly
become a favorite on both Bides of
the House of Commons. Captain
Tom, so far as uvordupois is concerned, is the "heaviest1' debater in the
Chamber. He has a happy faculty
of looking on the humorous side of
things political, and the. other day
ofter the division, in which the Government was sustained by the narrow
majority of -27, the captain happens

the chief Opposition whip, and Mr.
Calvert, the whipper-in of the / Government forces, with their heads together arranging the pairs after the
fateful vote hud been taken.

Relation of the
Liver and Kidneys
Functions such that each suffers when
the other is deranged.
Complicated cases can only be cured
by combined treatment such as Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
, The liver   filters   poisons  from the
blood.
The kidneys also filter poisons from
the blood.
When the liver becomes sluggish and
torpid in action, or is given too much
work by over-eating, the kidneys have
to help out with this work of Altera
tion. When the liver fails the kidneys
have all this work to do.
And this is exactly what causes nine-
tenths of the cases of kidney diseases.
The beginning is biliousness, indigestion and constipation and after a
time the kidneys begin to be affected
and there comes backache, urinary
derangements and finally kidney disease in some of its dreadfully painful
and fatal forms.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are
the rational cure for kidney disease
just as they are the most successful
because' they get at the cause of
trouble and exert a combined and
direct influence on liver, kidneys and
bowels.
They promptly and thoroughly
cleanse the bowels or'intestines and
by awakening the action of the liver
take the burden off the kidneys. Then
by their1 direct action on the kidneys
bring about the natural and healthful
working of these organs.
Mrs. Pave ,W. McCall, Lombardy,
Leeds Co., 'Ont., writes:—"I was
troubled with kidney diseases for eight
vears and doctored w\th several doctors to no avail, until I Wan using
Dr.- Chase's Kidney-LiVer Pills, which
entirely cured me. I believe I would
be dead were it not for this medicine."

Hanington wus one of the most prominent evangelical laymen, and resembled Mr. S. H. Blake, even to tin*
color of his hair. A witty clergyman of his own faction nicknamed

P0MP~AMD RAGS,
Two Spectacles Which Were Recently
Witnessed In London.
England's greatest annual pageant
has come and gone again—the reopening of Parliament. The streets were
more crowded than ever with sightseers eager to catch a glimpse of King
Edward and Queen Alexandra in their
gilded coach, of peers and peeresses
in robes and jewels and of Cabinet
Ministers in robes of office.
In half an hour after the royal
party entered the House of Lords the
ceremony, wonderful in its magnificence, was over and the gorgeous procession filed out again.
" 'E do look well fed, 'e do," eaid
one man mounted-on another's shoulders as he caught a glimpse of the
King's round, smiling face.
He did not say it to be funny or
critical, but merely with pure envy in
his tone, for unemployment is the
ghost that is haunting England at
present, and unemployment brings
hunger and suffering in its train.
In another part of the city just a
mile or so away from this gorgeous
pageant a very different procession
marched. Five thousand unemployed
women and children filed through the
streets, gaunt, ragged and dirty. They
carried cheap banners, and one cart
brought up the rear with the picture
of "An Englishman's Home," dilapidated, half falling to pieces and without furniture.
They marched along in silence,
many of them with babies in their
arms, to the Horticultural Hall; where
the organizers of the march had promised them milk and sandwiches. A
drearier procession than these hungry
women and children cannot be imagined.
It was a concerted effort on the
part of those who are trying to alleviate the conditions of London's unemployed to show unthinking Londoners the. horrors at it, and it was a
dramatic effect to have it within a
mile of the pageant of wealth ond
royalty.
Bishops as Marksmen.
The Bishop ,of Newcastle l*.as just
been telling a Benwell Cricket Club
audience hia experiences since he
joiiAd the Cambridge University Volunteers, fifty years,ago, as a.private.
In two years tie rose to be captain of
one of the companies of that eminent
battalion. He wanted to show how
much a man learnt from joining any
institution which had for its object
athletic exercise. He had in his company a large number of non-commissioned officers of various kinds. He
selected seven, and had, some of them
would Say, the effrontery to challenge all "the other companies of the
battalion.
They won their match in every cose,
and became the champion company
of the battalion. Out of the seven
who shot with him in those matches
and also at' Wimbledon there were
fo.ur. who came to be bishops—the
Bishop of Chichester, who still called
him captain; the Bishop of Nassau,
who hod passed away; the Bishop of
Newfoundland; and the Bishop of
Antigua'.
Mr. Baifour's Sister.
Miss Balfour is very devoted to her
brother, the ex-Premier, who hns described her as "the best of comrades."
He once told those present at a Manchester conversazione that she had
been associated with him in oil that
concerned his political fortunes, and
hod been present at every political
contest he hod gone through. Miss
Bslfour has been described os very
quiet in society, but is the possessor
of o keen wit and the power of expressing it to favored persons. When
in Buluwnyo Miss Balfour witnessed
a Matabele war-dance , which had
been arranged for her by Dr. Jameson. Her favorite hobby is photo-
('raphy, but she shares her brother's
ove of music.

DODD'S   KIDNEY   PILLS   CURE3
MR. C. WILLIAMS' RHEUMATISM.
He Took the Terrible Disease In Time
and a Single Box Made Him a
Well Man.
South Ingonish, Cape Breton (Sne-
cial).—How easily and quickly Dodd's
Kidney Pills banish Rheumatism and
other symptoms of Kidney Disease
is well known in the case of Michael
C. Williams, a fisherman livh,g in
this place.
"My kidney disease started from a
strain," Mr. Williams says', "and I
suffered from it tor about thre»
months.. I had backache, stiffness in
the joints and Rheumatism. When I
got up in the morning I had a bad
taste in my mouth; I perspired freely
with the least exertion, and I was a I
ways tired and nervous.
"One box of Dodd's Kidney Pllle
cured me and I believe they will cure*
others who are suffering from Kidney
Disease.
If you have any two of the s'ymp
toms mentioned by Mr. Williams you
may be sure' of two thinps. One is
that your kidneys are sick, and the
other that Dodd's Kidney Pills will
cure you.
Dodd's Kidney Pills have proved in
thousands of eases all over Canida
that they never foil to cure Kidney
Disease of any kind or stage.;
No Waste for Him
To justify hia repeated use of the
same witticism, as noted in three of
his* plays, J. M. Barrie says: "We
Scots abhor waste. Did you never
hear,of the aged Saunders Carlyle,
who always drank his whiskey to the
last drop the instant it was poured out
for him 'Why do you drink down
your liquor in that quick, greedy
way?' a stranger said to Saunders in a
reproachful tone,.- 'I once had one
knocked over,' the old man explained."

.   ....Was She Sarcastic?
Do you think that Miss Kidder was
having fun with mc?" asked Charley.
"Well, old chap, give me the details," was Arthur's response,
"You sec, I had my bull terrier with
me, and I soid to her, 'Thot dog knows
as much as I do.' And she said,
'Don't you think ten shillings was too
much to pay for him?' "
A Caricaturist's Pets.
Sir Frank Carruthers Gould, the famous political caricaturist of The
Westminster Gazette, takeB an enthusiastic interest in natural history,
and when residing at Buckhurst Hill,
in Epping Forest, he had some exceptional opportunities for its practical study. Many people will have
noticed how often unimals figure in
Sir Frank's cartoons, and the hobby
haa been of real value to the urt
which he has professionally practiced
since giving up business on the Stock
Exchange. Sir F. C. Gould has several "pets" in his bouse, including a
jackdaw, on whose education he has
bestowed much pains.
"Bobs."
Field Marshal Earl Roberts received his now familiar nickname of "Our
Bobs" from his soldiers in India, by
whom he was greatly beloved. When
still a lieutenant, iu 1853, he saw two
Sepoys making off with a stnndard.
He rode after them at full tilt, und
overtook them as they were about to
enter a village. There they turned
round and one of tbem levelled his
musket at tho young officer; but, for-
tunutcly, the ciqi missed lire and the
standard-bearer was cut down. On
tbe same day Lieut. Roberts won his
Victoria Cross.
A Corrector of Pulmonary Troubles.
—Many testimonials could bo presented showing the great efficacy of
Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil in curing

but the best testimonial is experience
and the Oil is recommended to all

the certainty that they will find relief.
It will allay inflammation in the
bronchial tubes as no other preparation can.
