Resignation Rcluctautly Received.
At a meeting of the Board of Trustees
of the Wallace Street Methodist church,
helil on Thursday evening, the following
resolution was adopted unanimously:
Resolved, It is with feelings of deep
regret that the Trustee Board of the
Wallace Street Methodist Church learn
from Bro. S. Gough that he wishes to
resign the position of organist of this
church, which he has filled for the last
25 years with so much acceptability to
the board and the church; and as Bro.
(lough has during all those years given
his services gratuitously, we feel that,
although reluctant to accept the resignation, it would only be justice to Bro.
Gough that he be given a well-earned
relief from the arduous duties which he
lias been performing for"so long a time,
and would move that the resignation be
accepted, and that this board place on
record their high appreciation of the valuable services rendered by Bro. Gough
to the church, and that this resolution
be spread on the minutes and a copy of
the same presented to Bro. Gough.

There is a current report in
London that Mr. Chamberlain has
sent a second dispatch to Sir Hercules Robinson, snstructing him to
inform President Kruger that with
regard to the 59 accused Uitlanders
besides the four leaders, the British
will trout execution of their fine,
imprisonment and banishment as
an act of deliberate hostility to
Great Britain, which would be resented by active measures because
it would result in crippling the
mining industry in the Hand. It
is thought that the British Government means to provoke a quarrel.

THE, GREAT GERMAN STATESMAN
6, YEARS OLD APRiU I.

On Wednesday, tbe is: day of April,
the family, friends, tenants, neighbors,
am), indeed, the whole of Genu uny, will
celebrate the oighty-firBt birthday anniversary nf Prince Otto von Bismarck,
the unifier uf ihe fatherland. This grizzly
veteran of statesmanship, diplomacy and
war, though forced Into retirement six
years ago by a headstrong sovereign,
whose very throne was in a great mcas-
ure of uismnrok's making, continues to
be. anil will oont En ub to i o so long as he
lives, the moat Interesting figure in Guv-
many. For that matter, ho is the must
powerful and interesting figure in German history, notwithstanding the inter
venlng kings, and emperors, since Kroil*
eriuk the real So large have beon thn
achievements of this man that the Interest ln him is nnt confined to Germany
alone, ever, in this tune of his old age
and retirement.
Ab a Prussian, Bismarck was anything
but a republican, since ho believed with
unwavering firmness in the divine right
(if the Hohenzollerns tt« rule In that
land: but ho acknowledged that a constitutional and limited monarchy, whore
tho sovereign was but as the cupola of
tho house was the lost- government for
England, and that a pure democracy was
the best kind of government for the
United States. When, therefore, most of
the nobles wore anxiously hoping for tho
overthrew of the American republic, Bismarck exerted, quietly but powerfully,
his groat infiuanoe in favor of non-intervention, which was irj effect a declaration in favor of the onion.
When Bismarck developed a religious bent it Is not hard to see. In hie
youth he was so wild and reckless that
he became known in the army where he
served as the "Mad Bismarck. " and he
kept np this reputation when he had returned to his ancestral home at Scboen-
hausen to heoome a country 'squire and
cultivate tho estate he had Inherited from
his father, the retired captain of dragoons. His mad pranks were held in

lt was la 1H51, I y the war, that Bismarck s in1 I career In any large sense
began, though previous to that he had
been a member of the Prussian Diet and
had championed tho rights ol the throne
as against those of the people. In that
year he weni to Frankfort as the Prussian member of the German Diet-, which
managed the foreign relations of the
kingdom, the various principalities nnd
the free titles. He was then 8fl years old
and there was much wonder that so important a post should have In en given to
BO untried a man, a man who had only
one decoration that giver, to him for saving the life of hit! soldier servant when he
was u lieutenant In the armv. Kvon the
prince of Prussia, afterwards Emperor
William I., by grace of Bismarck's genius and resolution, expressed -urprise
and felt much doubt.
But Bismarck soon Justified himself
and introd-icod the old world diplomats
to tactics thev were a long lime in comprehending He told themtheploln truth
whenever he spoke at ali. and he was al-
ways remarkable rather for candor than
retieenoi—and they were entirely baffled.
His reports to his Minister In Berlin during the eight years he remained in Frankfurt were complete and graphic histories
of all the happenings I'he idea of German unity as at 'hi- time advocated at
the instance of Austria he did not consider to tho interest*, of the Prussian
throne and he opposed it with all his
might, li evi •- seemed at this time that
ho WaB opposed to any kind of unity, but
that was not so his Idea was that I'ms-
sla should form nnd ba the center of that
union and his foresight enabled him to
nee, even then, how that oould he brought
about.
In ono of Motley's letters there i- a little picture of Bismarck's home life at his
home in Frankfurt. He said; "The Bis-
marckf are ns kind as ever. It is one of
those homes where everyone dues what he
likes. The >-how apartments, where thoy
receive formal company, are,In the front
of the house, Their living rooms, how-
over, ure a salon and thmng room at the
hack, opening upon the garden, Here
1hore are young and old,grandparents and
children and dogs all at once; eating,
drinking, smoking, piano playing and
pistol firing (in the garden;, all going on
at the same time. It is one of those establishments where every earthly thing
that can bo oaten or drunk is offered you
—porter, soda water, small beer, champagne, burgundy or claret—aro about all
the time, und (everybody is smoking tho
best Havana cigars every minute."
This is tho kind of life Bismurck has
lived up to this time, and even in his old
age he huH continued to le us much of a
trenobxuan as his physician will permit,
lie used to say: "If 1 am to work well, L
must- be well fed," and most healthy and
sensible people will say amen to such a
doctrine. Bismarck stayed in Frankfort
till 185.*, when ho was sent to st. Petersburg as Minister. To use his own expression, he was "put on ice.'' lie was a
great favorite of the Czar ami became a
per onal friend of the famous and powerful Govtchakoff. When King William, In
ttsuT, succeeded his brother it was
thought he would ask Bismarck to be
Minister, but he was irresolute, while
Bismarck was Indifferent. Wnen, however, in 18(13, the king found himself in
trouble with his parliament, ho asked His-
raarok to I b parliament-tamer and accept
the presidency of the Ministry. But Bismarck declined, pleading had hoalth.
However, ho accepted iho mission to

International exhibition in London, and

of whioh Disraeli was one. Bismarck

I have no doubt that Bismarck did say

throne was in his leaving it.
Bismarck assured the monarch that he
was willing to manage matters without a

It was about this time that Bismarck won

which strikes tho retort walls. This fact

the production nl' armor plates is to have
them comparatively soft Inside ami hard

heating them till thoy glowed. Ln thu
new process two plat. 3 are put into a furnace one on top of tho other, with a hollow space between,     Hils  space is made
{ gas tight by means of asbestos packing

"The idea of making the hat pin a
weapon of defense tirst dawned upon me J
when I was in the Fast,'' says a bright-
Byed dame, who is always watching for a
shance to exploit California, climate,
morals and all.
"Of course, you all know that a worn-
in can't go about alone with any degree
of comfort when she gets away from
western chivalry. Well, as I wanted to
study art in Now York while 1 visited my
br< ther In Newark, I was obliged tu use
the suburban trains almost every day. 1
had a bookftil of unpleasant experiences
before I learned the magic power of that
simple little hat pin.
'Finally a man who was packed beside
me In a ear became simply unendurable.
I squeezed myself meekly up against the
window, giving mine enemy three-fourths
nf the seat. Gazing oul into the darkness
1 became positively depressed and lelt
like offering an apology to some; ody for
presuming to cumber the earth.
'Mine enemy made the mistake of encroaching still further upon my territory,
"It was ton much. My wrath blazed
up and I drew my hat-pin. 1 said not a I
word and did nothing to attract attention. Nevertheless that man was glad to

This fiery little anecdote, told ever the

of stories of the uses of the hat-pin. The
pinking of locks, the oilloe of can-opener,
paper-cutter, insect-destroyer, these were
among the lesser things, A tale of the
repairing of a broken harness at a critical
juncture vied for second honors with the

After a delay witliout precedent

general elections nre announced for
ihe 23d of June. In tin' last general!
election a premature dissolution,
after only four sessions of parliament, necessitated tin; use of voters'
lists several years old ami the disfranchisement of thousands of young
Canadians. In the coming election
voters' lists u year old will have tu
lie used because of the prolongation
of parliament into a sixth session,

names of dead men and absentees,
and will omit those of a very considerable number of young men t resources, to on

every means of amicable settlement.
They are therefore in favor of the
acceptance of the offer of .Manitoba
to make a thorough investigation of
the conditions of education in Manitoba and to suggest means for settlement without Federal interference. The proposition of the Liberals, therefore, makes for peace.

of sectarian strife. Upon this point

Liberals will stand for provincial

tional affairs.
The Liberals will go into thc battle with enthusiasm under a leader
who commands the affectionate loyalty of his followers. lie will be
able to gather about him a ministry
of such strength and ability as tbe
country has not seen for many a
year. There will be no jealousy, no
intrigue, no log-rolling; but an earnest desire to work together for the
good of the country, to develop ils

and there will be a feeling of intense relief that the opportunity
has at last arrived to bring the
dreary farce to an end.
The Conservatives have now controlled the administration of public

expenditures, and to obtain a treaty
of reciprocity with the I'nited States.
Every one of these promises has

LOCAL LUMINARY'S LEGAL LORE.
It Makes All the Difference Whose
Ox Is Gored—Another Case
of " Suspension."
The Local Luminary treated bis readers to another effuBion on tbe suspension of policeman Thompson on Monday
lust. In iliis llu' Luminary labored to
make it appear that we were tbe special
apologist for Mayor Davison. It is needless to say that our article was never intended as an apology for the mayor, but
.to show the unfair way the Luminary
had treated the subject. We could not
pass over iii silence the hostile attitude,
the Bneaking animus and the bitter warfare the Luminary bus shown to every
act of .Mayor Davison's. Anyone with
a spark of fairness iu bis composition
would see that the mayor neither needed nor expected an apologist after publishing a clear-out statement of his position over bis own signature.
But fairness in the Luminary is an
unknown quantity when dealing with
an opponent. Mayor Davison can congratulate himself on being the special
subject of the Luminary's wrath. The
cause is not hard to bud, but this we
will leave for a future occasion. What
we want lo dial with at present is the
Luminary's legal lore. There is an old
saying, "Give a fool rope enough, and
be will hang himself." We don't insinuate the Luminary is a fool by any means,
but we have a dim suspicion that ill bis
answer to us lie " suspended" himself—
metaphorically. After quoting copiously from the Municipal Act to establish his case against Mayor Davison, he
goes a little further—and lure we suspect he gels his drop—and quotes Mr,
Justice Crease's remarks on the bench.
The learned judge was not criticising the
.action of Mayor Davison, but the action
of the Council under Mayor Quonnell
and the old re..iine, when lhe Council
were clearly overstepping their authority. They were not endeavoring to reduce the force and lighten the burden of
the taxpayers, but they were, by the
most barefaced trickery and wire-pulling, appointing a few of tho favored pets
•of the combination to places in the public service and ai the public expense,
without n single recommendation except
that they were friends of the combination. Did thu Luminary empty tht vials
of his wrath on the devoted bead of
Mayor Quennell? Did the Luminary
emerge from his eclipse and write an
.editorial on the Biibjecl? Did tbe Luminary call on his satellites, Qualicuui
Tom, Bridget, .Michael and Patrick, to
[Contribute abuse? We should say nay,
Pauline. We are inclined to think the
Luminary approved all that was done,
and for the simple reason that he was
the bright particular star in the centre
of that galaxy of wire-pullers, The Luminary wus llien tile acknowledged pilot
of lhe municipal barge.
.Because, the Mail, in its own defense
■ij'aiiial unwarranted abuse nnd lu justice to the public, exposed the methods
by which ibe Ltuniuary sought to deceive ils readers by garbling extracts
{rum our columns nud from the Mnniei-
oal Act, we are dubbed an "apologist"
and our exposure is characterized as
"abuse." It Is gratifying to note, how-
over, that "the Free Press has thrived
upon this kind of spasmodic abuse for
22 years," during which time it "has
ba I the exquisite pleasure of Seeing its
revllers fall by the wayside or enter the
journalistic boueyard." Allowing that
to lie the case, it sliMtkl be truly grateful to us for furnishing it with a modicum of its means of sustenance and also,
as implied, a prospective subject for ils
"exquisite pleasure;" but it is not easy
to understand how, with all this continuous thrift and ghoulish glee lorn period
.of 22 years, it lias been enabled to "continue tbe even tenor of its way," w hen n
brief reference to its " peculiar moves"
Causes its editor to rear ou his hind legs
and whiuingly invoke sympathy from
"its  subscribers   whose  numbers  are
counted in the I i -.amis."
For ourselves, we have no desire or
Inclination to thrive by abuse or to glory
in the fall of others, and the "exquisite
pleasure" of witnessing bom-yard consignments certainly does not attach to
our composition.     It  remains tbe
public, to decide whether this ghoulish
gloating shall be added to ut our expense—evidently a "consummation devoutly to be wished" by the "auricular
oracle." It would make little difference
as fur as we are concerned; but, from
present indications, we don't (ear any
such disaster for many years to eome,
during which time we hope to enjoy life
and witness increased life and activity
in our midst ami number our subscribers 61/ the thousands. The "exquisite
pleasure" of gloating over the departed
wo relegate to the journalistic ghouls of
a past decade, whose bones seem lo
Shake with a sympathetic rattle when
even an Imaginary prospect oilers for
.adding another victim to tholr list.
In our article last week regarding the
subject at issue we conclusively proved
thu fact of garbling on the part of the
"auricular oracle" by supplying deficiencies in quotations made by him—relevant ph ruses which evidently did not
suit his purpose to quote, as they either
weakened or destroyed his contentions;
and for this we are accused ourselves of
garbling. The profundity of tiiis argument is only equaled by the schoolboy's
last resource, " Your another." But it
is some satisfaction to observe that our
"abuse" had the effect, as far as the
Municipal Act is concerned, of causing
the publication of entire sections instead
of garbled portions thereof. Probably
this explains the secret of that "abuse"
upon which the F. P. is said to have
thrived—the kind that compels it to
give correct reports when it would not
do so otherwise; in which ease its " re-
vilers" should be given due credit there-
\ for.
We nether maintained that Mayor
Davison was right nor that the Free
Press was wrong in the main question at
issue. We merely charged, and proved,
that the latter was guilty of gross garbling, with the evident intention of reflecting upon the former and deceiving
its readers. Our only contention was
that the conflicting nature of the law
"would not appoar to corroborate the
promulgations of our local Sir Oracle."
For instance, section 224 says the police
force " shall consist of a chief of police
aud us many constables and other officers and assistants as the Council may
from time to time think necessary;" but
makes the Police Board the sole judge
of the minimum number of police "absolutely required" and gives them the sole
i power of appointment. It. appears, however, the Council have the sole power of
! "fixing" the wages to be paid the police,
which is only right they should have
when they have to pay them. Sec. 22"
says:
"The Council shall fix and pay the remuneration of the police, and shall provide all such clothing, accoutrements
and necessaries as may from time to
lime be deemed requisite lor the accommodation and use of the force."
Now, supposing the Council refused to
tix and pay adequate remuneration, and
provide clothing, etc., to an appointee
j of the Board—or lix the wages at such u
! figure as would practically render null
|and void the appointment—what is the
j Hoard or the appointee going to do about
jit? We simply ask for Information.
This may not be "speaking to the question," but, it comes pretty near it. It.
1 seems to us, if the Council is the only
! power that can "lix" lhe salary, the
difficulty could be easily overcome.
We have no reason to question that
; the Mayor acted in good faith in endeavoring to carry out the expressed wish
of the Council, and certainly ilo not feel
justified iu accepting judgment from u
source well known to be prejudiced j no
impartial person should. If this position constitutes au "apologist," we plead
guilty.

British Columbia is the only province in the Dominion thai has
"liodiess schools." In this province
neither priest nor preacher is allowed to act as a school trustee.
Church and state are separate. Yet
in no province in the Dominion are
the people more law-abiding and
less bigoted. Notwithstanding this
well-known fact, the province's delegation to the House of Commons
at Ottawa voted as a unit to compel a sister province to adopt a I
school system Ihat only tends toward keeping alive that intolerant
spirit that prevails in all countries

Surely the people do not want to
make this province a battle-ground
for warring church organizations,
and the best way to prevent it is to

Many a hold adventurer is returning

Based on Facts Already Known and
Published—A Case for the Grand
Jury to Investigate.
Editor Mail : The friction between Mayor Davison and Police
Magistrate Simpson brought facts
to the surface that prove that "the
heathen Chinee and the Free Press"
have not a monopoly on "ways
that are dark and tricks that are
vain;" for the papers called for by
Mr. Foster in the Legislature show
that Police Magistrate Simpson has
a tendency to Btray in that direction. The same papers reveal tbe
fact that thu government of British
Columbia are not above winking at
shady transactions. Perhaps many
of your readers havo not read the
papers referred to (although published in Free Press); let me state
as briefly as possible the salient
points of the case, 'i'he "Magistrates' Act'' provides a penalty of
$21)11 on any magistrate or .1. I', in
the province who neglects or refuses
to make quarterly certain returns
specified in the act, one half of the
penalty going to the informer, the
other lo the government. Now, it
seems that the firm of Simpson &
Simpson found out that there were
three J. P.'s in Comox district who
had failed to niako the returns according to statute, and as a consequence left themselves liable to be
mulcted to the tune of $200 each.
Simpson A* Simpson,doubtless needing some ready money at the time,
laid an information, and then compounded the action for $450; the
government, of course, got nothing'.
Now wo come to the "peculiar" part.
The three,!. P.'s, possibly through
ignorance of law, neglect to comply
with a provincial statute, and are
bled by Simpson & Simpson for
$450, Simpson A- Simpson, for compounding tho action, are guilty of
an indictable offence under section
155 of the Criminal Code, and go
scot free. In a word, Messrs. Simpson & Simpson can practically
blackmail three respectable citizens,
violate a section of the Criminal
Code, and the government, for reasons best known lo themselves, win
at the transaction. Nay, mine than
wink—honors are heaped on them;
for we find that, immediately after
the occurrence, and wilh the full
knowledge of the government, .Mr.
Simpson, Si-., was elevated to the
bench, where he now poses as the
Police Magistrate of our fair city,
and Mr. Simpson, jr., was chosen
on several occasions as a suitable
person to prosecute others on behalf
of the crown. The question arises,
Is there no remedy 7 Is there no
way of bringing offenders like tl,i-
to trial ? in answer to a possible
query like Ibis we answer, Yes, there
is a remedy, a full and ample one.
That good old Knglish law that
deals out even-handed justice in
poor equally with the rich; that respects neither the rank or wealth
of an offender, has placed a remedy
in the hands of the people when
petty officials violate their oath of
uttice by failing to do their dmy.
That remedy is ihe Grand Jury. It
is in the power of the Grand Jury
to make a presentment of any offence of their own knowledge, without, any formal indictment laid before them at the suit of the crown.
In this case we believe il is not only the privilege of the next Grand
Jury of Nanaimo County, but an
imperative duly to investigate Uncharges against Simpson & Simpson thus publicly brought to their
attention, and if they Iiml the facias stated, make their presentment
accordingly. Will they do it ?

Captain C.tw Ualcliultied.
The court of inquiry Into the cap-
sizing of the British Bhip Blairmore
in San Francisco harbor April Uth
has met and adjourned. The result was tho exoneration of Capt.
Caw. The board attributed the disaster to a wind and tide running
in oppssite directions aud to tin
fact that the Blairmore ran ahead
of her anchor and was thus tripped.
Except in the latter particular, the
acquittal of Capt. Caw was the only
thing that could be expected, considering the composition of the court
(being two-thirds master-mariners)
and the fact that tho captain was
under obligation to take risks in
the interest of economy. But the
anchor feature is a reflection upon
Capt. Caw's seamanship. By shifting the helm and setling a rag of
canvas the ship could have been
kept clear of her moorings. In view
of that fuel the verdict of the court
looks like a very thin calciinining.
In effect the verdict was that the
hands.    The public verdict now, as
before, is that the Blairmore cap-,

Henry Ward Beecher believed, man's
religious faith was colored largely by tho
condition of his health. He had said
from the puipit that no man could hold
rigb I views on religion when his stomach
was out of order, it is quite certain that
no preacher can preach with effect if his

surprising, therefore, that we find the
leading clergymen of Canada speaking so

else of being relieved of this trouble.

EXPLANATION  OF   THE   SCIENCE
CF PALMISTRY.
A Knowledge nf ti Considered Highly lm-
Saysol Its Principles*
John Strati go Winter said o( Chelro,
the apostle- of ptilmistry ns a soionoe* who
Is now lu New York, that she had always connected pnlmlstij with tho
l4bluok art," until sho wenl to him in
London; hut after lin had fully told her
(ihe details of Im* childhood, described
her relation to her parents, the separate
Infiuenoos both hart had In her life, and
what characteristics she had inherited]
she was convinced that palmistry was a
soienco, and that if mothers would take
their children to Choiro 11.17 would get
valuable aid In controlling and guiding
their lives
l asked Chelro why he placed palmistry on a scientific basis.
"Because I have lived most of my life
In India, among the Brahmins," he answered. "They have made palmistry .1
tnu* science. Much even nf tho so called
'blaoK art' of the Brahmins ia laid on a
scientific foundation. They surround the
practice with a hah' of mysticism be-
cause It appeal Bistro ugly to the uninitiated mind, and prnduoes more terror.
"1 remember that a Brahmin once do*

from an Knglish man whom tho priests
were holding for this purpose. Tiie man
refused; then said the Brahmin, ' You will
not rise from that .stone till you do tell;
neither will I. move/ And by the power
of hypnotism (when was not then reoog-
nixed by the medical world) ho took the
life right out of the man. making him
tell htm all he desired to know. The
ability to do this thing inspired abjeot
terror; now it is understood as a scientific power.'
"So with palmistry in India. It is
made up of three part--. Some hypnotism, a keen knowledge of human nature,
and an inherited and developed knowledge of the 'markings of God.' "
"What do you mean by the'markings
of God?" I asked,
"I mean that In tho Hook oi .Tub there
in this verse Ami God made marks upon
the hands of mon that the sons of men
may know thom.' This we adepts firmly
believe,"
"Why do you believe in the markings
*if the hands more than In the features of
the face?"  I asked.
"a Knowledge of   both should be had
But the features  can   be   controlled or
managed by a Una will or subtle nature.

Jn this simple way to demonstrate the
truth of palmistry, ami to make people
believe In AG least tho more prominent
principles. Naturally, having followed
the study all my life, i reach conclusions
incomprehensible tn an amateur.
"The principal points,1' Choiro continued, "to guide a reader aro these: The
shape of the hands and fingers Is the great
guide to character. All hands are divided
into two hemispheres, as lt were, by the
line of Head. The upper hemisphere represents mind, and the lower portion the
materials (Seo diagram.)
"Long fingers show a love of detail up-
parent in everything—in tho decoration
of a room or In tho treatment of a ser- •
vant. Long-fingered people aro strict and
proper in manner, quick to notice small
attentions, and havo a leaning toward
affectation,
"Short-lingered people are quick and
impulsive, they act by Intuition, they
can't be bothered with little things and5
are inclined to jump at conclusions too
rapidly, Thoy care tint much for the conventionalities oi society.
"1'eoplo with linger.- thick and heavjr.

"A thick, clumsy, palm tells of brute
force and obstinacy.
"A hollow palm Is a very unfortunate
sign; poople possessing It, though working hard to obtain Buocess, receive but
the wages of disappointment.
"The development of the joints of the
lingers and thumbs is important. With
the first joint largely developed, we get.
ability to reason out difficulties. With
the second joint developed we got a leaning toward science.
1 "Lar^e hands show power of completion*. Small hands denote Ideas too largo

"Pointed lingers --how ideality, tho desire for love; they always indicate the Impressionable, Impulsive people,

for exactness, for politics, and their owners have a talent for mastering languages." .   , r    ,
1 could easily see with John Strange
Winter how a mother might repress or
develop a child aoourdlng to the characteristics of Its hand.
"I consider the nails most important,"
Chelro said, "for they Indicate matters of
health.
"Largo nails, bluish In color, tell of
weak notion of the heart, and bad circulation.
"Thin nails, if small, denote energy
ami delioate health.
"Flute nails, if small, particularly if
wide and curved towards the top. are Indicators ol consumption.

It has been found possible nnt only to
take away from a (lower Its natural odor
hut to make ii yield a perfume derived
from soma other flower.
Tin re are violets which aro humble tc
look upon but which have a sweet fragrance- and there are handsome members
of the violet- family which are almost
odorless. Modern science in Paris has
accomplished tho transfer of the perfume
ot one, to the beauty of thc other. The
African marigold, which is a beautiful
flower, is disliked by many on account of
Its disagreeable odor. This odor has been
removed also. A sunllowor has been made
to smell like a rose aud a chrysanthemum
tike a violet.
The machine for perfuming flowers If

simply laid In the box. Into which lead
pipes charged with carbonic, acid gas laden
with the desired perfume. This machine
if. most generally used In strength on Inn
tho natural fragrance of violet-- and roses,
The In ton SO perfume resultant will last
many days. When it is neoossnry to rob a
flower of its natural odor before giving It
anothor it is soaked in bromated water
and then wa-Iied. In the case uf the African marigold the seeds were soaked in
rose water and musk and then sown. Tie
seeds of the flowers which sprang from
these wen- treated in thu same way and
finally marigolds were produced with 0
most- delicious fragrance.
If flowers are constantly watered with
a dilution of musk thu odor of musk wili

aud violets sometimes have poured over

CONTAGION   IN   THE   CUP-
How TiiiriMnissinti of Disease  in tlte Communion Cui'?3tay be Avoided,
The recent death of a cancer patient as

has suggested the possibility of danger in the common use of one cup in tht
administration of the communion. It \i
known that many partake whoso physical
condition demands individual set-vice,
and there are some who are deprived of
this blessing from a sense of justice tc
other communloants, It is an Interesting;
question whether tho church is exempt

in view of this transmission of disease
made possible by a collective u-o of one
cup.
At any rate, the individual cup now
largely used h is met with considerable
opposition because of its apparent exclu-
Blvonesss. To obviate this objection a
communion syphon has been devised
Which retains the idea id unity and fellowship in tli.o presentation of one cup,
nfiootually prevents the transmission of
tho disease and has a cleanliness which
makes it most attractive. It is Intended
for individual use. The wine can In

to Its formation, not one drop touching

subject considered is the heal of forcing

tho fermer experiment as follows:
1. The temperatures of steam pipos
average higher than those of hot water
pipes,  under common conditions,
13, When the risers or flow pines are
overhead lhe steam spends relatively
more of its heat in the returns, as bottom
Lent, than thc water dues.
.-. The heat from steam distributes itself over a great length of pipe more
readily than that uf hot water,and steam,
therefore lias a distinct advantage for
heating long runs,
I. Steam Is preferable to hot water fur
long and crooked circuits.
5. Unfavorable-conditions can bo more
favorably overcome with steam than with
water.
It finds that the addition oi crooks an'.
angles operates against bnt. water more
than against steam. .Hot water begins to
warm first, but will not heat a house tu a
dosirablo temperuturi ..s soon as -team.
Long pipes operate more against water
thin Bteam on account of friction. L'ho
pipes have to be graded in their [low
toward the boiler more nicely than steam
pines. One hundred pounds of hard coal
gave mere heat when appllud to steam
than whon applied '.0 water, and on the
whole in Its experien u the station finds
steam moro efficient and economical.

Most Excellent Advice.
The art of advertising is making long

tails to keep up with It—well, the sheriff
"will get. him if he don't watch out."
Two things are certain : Spasmodic newspaper advertising doesn't pay, and experiment ing with all kinds and styles of newspaper advertising fails to bring the best
results.
Have nn unvarying stylo of your own, a
distinctive, characteristic style. Have an
exclusive border or exclusive fype, if possible. Let the people learn where to look
lor your ads, and have some feature about
then I that, will make people rend them.
Describe your goods in a brief, breezy,
catchy way.
Then let others wrangle aoout what constitutes good advertising; wkUuxuu inak«

for they were kept in rigid stanchions.
Not very long ago 1 was in tho stable of
a noted Holsteln-Friesluu breeder where
thn cows would average more than lt90U
pounds in weight, and that stable was
only -i' feel wide. 6U feet long and only T
feet in the clear, and in flint s'ablo he
kept in swing stanchions -,'T cows and a
bull. In the lirst of these the COWS would
average between 700 and 800 paunds, and
had only ;;:i? .. cubic feet of air space.
and without a single ventlator. ex.'up!
the two doors through which fodder was
thrown from the loft. In the latter they
find only 318)i cubic feet, and only a
small ventilator 16 inches square. 1
have iu mind several stables fully ae
faulty as these in other states, but- will
not hll space by mentioning their data.
As a rule, the dairymen with such stables
are great sticklers fur "a breath of fresh
air, a bit of sunshine aud a little daily
exercise. ' and no wonder. If my euws
had to occupy such quarters 1 would
leave them out all the time. Better by far
have pure air, all the sunshine there Is
and a chance to run aruund to keep warm
than to be shut up In the 'black hole of
Calcutta." Hut no one must expeot their
cows to du their best or to make dairying
pay, with cows treated in that way.
Milk is a by-product. It comes from the
consumption of food beyond the necessities of tbe animal, and in eider to get
the largest production from minimum
of food, the cow must be made just as
comfortable as possible, be kept warm
and quiet, and have all the pure water
she wants to drink, and have it jtiBt
when she needs it.—J. S. Woodward, in
Prairie Farmer.

NESTS   FOR   TURKEYS.
A.II the Hens Want tsal'laoe 'Mud Looks
sum* what Secluded,
If turkeys are kept at all they should
be kept properly. Instead, however, thoy
frequently get uu attention worthy lho
name. A writer in the American Poultry
Advocate calls attention to one serious
neglect. Ho says that much time i.s annually lost nnd no: a few turkey eggs by
hen- making their Dusts in faraway isolated places, where they are not readily
found, except by the wily crow, skunk
or other sharp-eyed marauders. And
this ]o>- is all the mure inexcusable as it
can readily be avoided by a little ingenuity and judgment on the owner's part.
iie claims to knuw a breeder of quite a
strain of Hnm/H turkeys who noldom
got more than half tbe eggs laid by his
ton or twelve Hron/e hens. There was a
large wood n--ar his house into which
his hens regularly each spring pluuged
and sought lor not.-. He -omplained of
his loss from crows ami other Vermin,
and whon told how easily it could ho
prevented, he expressed surprise, and
was willing to make tbe attempt to
save more of his uirkoys' nests. According iu our Instructions be placed
some rough piles of brush about the
corners of the fence near tbe boUSO and
barn, and in the orchard. He al.-u laid
some ompty barrels about in out-of-the-
way places, putting straw and leaves
in them, and some brush on and about
them. This was done in February and
again in April, and all his hen- wero
laying and all tjie nc^ts were inside his
own ground. The wi rk uf finding tho
nests was reduced about three-fourths
and all the eggs saved. »
AU the hen- want Ie a place that looks
somewhat secluded. Thoy do not cam
for u faraway nest especially, but like a
place that gives .some promise of not being a prominent public curiosity. If a
loose pile of brush is thrown in any
out-of-tlie way place, .-ay behind a clump
of shrubbery and near a fence, in a corner of the lem-e, a barrel covered up
with brush, one end only visible slightly, a few boards leaned against the
fence and covered with rubbish, etc.,
will any or all make a desirable place
for madanie turkey to deposit tier e^gs.
It is best to not disturb the nest too
much when once the hen has begun laying. Let her have her egg*. If the nest
has a proper quantity of straw or leaves
in it the lien will keep the eggs covered
snllicieiitly to keep them from freezing.
Some hens will not mind having eggs
taken out of their nests, but others will
soon b ok for some mure secluded place,
the chances being in favor of being
placed away out in sonic field or aloug
the hill or mountain deep lu tho wood.
Ol' course if the hens get broody before
they art wanted to Bet, the ouys must
be taken out of the mist ami the hens
broken up for the time being.
A (nl tii' Pump.
A plan by which the water trench for
cattle or poultry can be kept supplied
without having them come to the well
'which should never be permitted 1, is
tn tap tho pump cylinder just below the
pump and insert a small pipe, which
run- t > the tank. Whenever any one
draWB water for house or barn, a liberal
percentage of it is forced through the little pipe. Another advantage is, that as
BOO.ll OS the pumping ceases, the wafer
in the pump runs off mul does not. co-
back Into the well or ivevze iu the pumps.
ftArfjw
In summer, ihi Immediate draining of
the pump does nol allow it to soak, sour
or decay, and it1-, life is thus lengthened.
j Tlte Connection between pipe and cylinder
j must be tight, aud a little higher than
the top of the tub. At the tub an over-
Mow pipe must be flxeil to carry off BUT-
phiBwator under ground, if a muddy
place about it is not desired A combination force and lifting pump would force
Wafer to the tub np almost any -.-ratle.—

What if Prof, ('oilier proves Si lie evidently seems to hope to prove, that
the fat ul foods is the measure of the fat
of milk, and sijiec the fat of milk is an.
approximately axed percentage, really the
measure of milk production: It minors
little what he proves, for facts are usually lhe best for humanity, let them fall
where they will. If, however fat- are the
measure of milk production, the fatty
foods are thoso must friendly toduirymen.
among these foods will be found cotton
seed meal, old proce-- I In Seed meal, nl«-
tcn meal and palm nut meal. Oatl Carry
a fair latloof fat. or oats Contain more
fat than corn, wheat, harlev, bran, or
than most other foods than those named.
If the fat of fond determines ihe fat of
milk, then it |H probable thai a oloSST
study of the fat of foods will have to be
made than   has a-yet been   given them.
Would it follow  that with fomts poor In
fat. oils from cheap sources will he added
and that a balanced ration for cows will
mean in the future one containing a din*
ratio of fnt or a definite number of
pounds of fat dally! While we have no
expectation that fat ol foods will ba
shown in pc in any more than to a very
minor degrso related in the amount of
fat in milk or to the mill: flow./et all

gators should be watched and studied.
We have before said that it v*ts formerly
held that the fat in foods Is the measure
of the fat in milk, and that this oh! view
i- now verv generally regarded as exploded.
