Eleventh  Year
LIBERAL
CONVENTION
Action Excluding  Delegates
Declared to Be
Illegal.
Martin Has Injured Himself
by His Arbitrary
Measures.
(I. O. lluclianan returned on Sunday
right from Vancouver whither he
went as political editor of the Koote-
naian in accordance with the circular
issued by the executive of the Liberal
convention, Mr. Buchanan is secretary of tlio company which owns the
Kootenaian, In speukmg of the action
of the convention. Mr. Huohanan said :
"In view of tne fact that It was the
Liberals of the interior who were most
urgent in asking for a convention it
seems a pity that there had not been
some concerted action among themselves, ano they had not 'agreed upon
some man as their choice for leader.
In thu absence oi Mr. (Ialliher, M.P.,
or any one else who might have united
tlm Kootenay delegations there was
not common action taken. The Martin faction of the convention, although
they were not in the majority, were
united and worked for a definite
object, while those against tbem were
united only on the negative proposition of opposing Mr. Martin. At the
llrst ballot taken in the convention 134
votes were cast. When the question of
leadership was voted upon 88 votes
only were cast of which Mr. Martin
was the first choice of 47. The 46 who
in tbe meanwhile had been excluded
or had absen ted themselves boing
praotically all anti-Martin men.
'The platiorra adopted, an entirely
non-committal document, was tbe
work of a few odd moments of the
time uf J. C. Brown. It provides for
the construction of about 2,000 miles
oi railway with*the provision that no
laud grants shall be given therefor,
and in Cerent, hilly favors the abolition
of the provincial revenue tax. The
..'ri'iit questions of financial relations,
as between tbe province and the
Dominion, and of the relations of the
Labor and Liberal party, were suppressed as inconvenient and embarrassing. The platform is not particularly
objectionable as it goes, but it does
no ileal with the sorious question of
the euuotry.
"I do not think the convention bas
by its action established party lines.
The arbitrary and illegal exclusion of
Senajor Templeman and his associates
from the meeting will be regarded by
old time Liberals throughout
province ns absolving them from any
obligation to rcuognize the action of
the convention. The effeot of the
action of the convention will be to
postpone indefinitely the putting into
effect of party lines lo provincial
politics."
"Why do you say[the action of tho
convention was illegal?"
"Thu members of the executive
showed from the records that by the
New Westminster convention of 1897
they had been authorized to make
rules under whicb conventions could
be called, that they had maae suoh
rules i that until passed upon by a
eonstituled convention these rules
were valid and in force and as they
stood thoy provided for the admission
of members of the executive and of
Liberal editors. There was no effectual reply to this, except an appeal to
thc vote of the meeting, the members
present whose seats were disputed refraining from voting. The points in
dispute were plainly stated, the voto
quietly taken and the excluded dele-
Bates departed, the meeting giving
rousing cheers for Senator Templeman. Of the Kootenay delegates the
Nelson and Rossland men, E. C.
Smith, M. L. A., Messrs. Stork, of
Fernie, and Goodenough, of Kaslo,
voted against the exclusion, all of the
ether in favor of it. MessrB. B. C.
Smith aud Dennis Murphy were
among those who left the meeting,
protesting their inability to follow
Mr. Martin in any event.
"There was mncb evidence of
systematic work on the part of M .
Martin to pack the convention. Mem-
tiers were there showing letters received from Mr. Martin and a well defined
rumor went around that the paynxnt
��t traveling expenses had been tender
ed In the case of delegations known to
he favorable to Mr. Martin."
"What would he the effect of Mr.
Martin's accession to the premiership?"   .
"The accession ot Mr. Martin to the
premiership, or a well defined probability of it, would mean a contlnua-
ion of the unsettled industrial condl-
ttions that we have had for tbo lust
three yoars. "
"Do you think tho convention has
done much towards the real'zation of
Mr. Martin's ambition?"
"I do not; I think that ho is us far
from the premiership todny as he ever
was; in fact, I think ho bus added to
his already large number of enemies
by his arbitrary action and that ho
has even lessened whatever small
chance he had ot becoming the chief
executive of the province "

MINING NEWS,
**************************
W. II. Blakemore, manager for tho
syndicate, which is operating iron
properties near Kitchenor, arrived in
tonn yesterday lrom the cast,where he
has been for the last two months. Mr.
Blakemore reports that he has all arrangements completed for the resumption of work on the iron mines and
says a good sized foreo will be put to
work just as soon as the weutber will
permit. He says tbat the report of
Director Frechcville on the condition
of the Lo Koi had a good effect in
Montreal. It gave the plain unvarn-
shed facts and still showed that the
fe Roi is a valuable pmper y. Mr.
Blakemore leaves for tile east today.j
The Kootenay Mail says: Gr.s
HcdBtrom, foreman of tho Blue Jay
claim,being operated by tne Duquesne
Mining company on Smith creek,came
to town some days ago, and Y, B.
Wells returned on Tuesday from his
trip ou snowslioes to the Big Bend.
Both bring encouraging news. On
the Blue Jay, the operat'ons on which
have been vigorously pushed on under
the superintendence of A. IS. Bradley,
the drift has reached the old channel,
and the wash taken out shows gold,so
that there is every prospect of pay
ground being struck towards bedrock.
Sluicing operations have heen impeded
by the very cold weather. The pumping and hoisting plant is in first-class
shape and working Bplendidly. Raymond Allen has struck what he is
certain is the old channel of Camp
creek, and will get out dirt and sluice
ns soon as weather permits. The
prospects of getting pay gold of this
property also are excellent.
The Kootenay Mail says: D. Wolsey
intends running a tunnel of 100 feet
to crosscut tbe vein on the Silver
Spike and Silver Cross property on
Fish cteek, neur the Dunvegan. The
work will be started at once. Sixty
feet of tunnel has already been run on
the tne Pr��Per'y> antl t&o-na from four to.
eight feet of ore carrying gold, silver,
lead aud copper values. W. Scott, of
[jakusp, is interested n a group of
three claims near tbls proporty.
Messrs. Woodrow, Agncw and Hyatt
are interested in a neighboring property, and Messrs. Moore and Howell,
of lllecilliwact, hold another. All
these properties are located on the
same vein, and comprise ten claims,
the ore being similar to that showing
on the Silver Spike.
_ if
The Ymir Mirror says there is great
activity at the Homestake mine near
Craigtown and the property is turning
out as rich as was anticipated. The
tunnel is in some 250 feet and the ore
body is improving.

the
Montroal, Feb. 10.���The following
circular was issued by Sir Thomas G.
Shaughnessy, president of tbe C. P.
II., to the shareholders, aftor the
board meeting today
"To tho Shareholders,���The extraordinary expansion of the company's
business during tho past six or seven
years , and the apparent certainty that
tho volume will continue :to increase
year by year, renders it essential that
the company should, with the least
possible delay provide such additional
rolling stock and other facilitiea as
may be required for the prompt and
efficient handling of its traffic.
"The gradients anil alignment on
the busy sections of the system should
be substantially improved, so that the
large and increasing tonnage may he
moved with Ihe economy requisite for
the best results. In view of the present
und prospective net earnings ot the
compnny,tbe directors feel justified in
proposing that the money required for
theso purposes be secured by an issue
of ordinary capital shares, rather than
by other means, and therefore they
recommend the ordinary share capital be incraseed by the amount of
810,500,000. The directois consider
that it is due to the shareholders of
the common stock that they should be
givea tlit-privilege of subscribing for
the new stock at pur, in the proportion
of thirty per cent, of their respective
holdings of the outstanding common
shares,on the closing of tbe books in
London on Tuesday, Feburary 18th
and ln New York and Montreal, Monday, March 3rd, 1902, and a resolutions to that effect will be submitted
to the shareholders   for their approval.
It is intended that the money thus
raised shall be expended for the following purposes: Locomotives, cars
and other equipment, $10,000,000; enlargement of construction and repair
shops at Montreal and other points
on the system, $2,000,000; reduction of
grades,improvement of alignment and
second track where required, $13,500,-
000; additional grain elevators, terminals, ubsiiiess and passing sidings
aud other facilities, such ai are being
provided from month to month to meet
the requirements of the company's
business, 84,000,000.
"These estimates overrun the
amount of the contem platei issue of
stock at par, and therefore, to make
up the balance, and in order that the
company's property may be benefitted
to us full an extent as it the shares
had been sold at a premium on the
open market, it is proposed that an
amount equivalent to about 15 per
cent, of the issue, or 83,000,000 be appropriated from the surplus earnings
funds, to be expended for the purpose
above mentioned, in addition to the
proceeds of the sale of capital stock.
After appropriating this amount and
providing for payment of the dividends just declared on the preference
and common shares there will still be
$8,000,000   in   the    surplus  earnings
fund.
'The subscription prico of the new
stook will be payable at the Bank of
Montreal, London, New York and
Montreal a.% follows, 20 per cent, or
$20 per share on subscription; 20 per
cent, oi 820 per share on June 27th,
1002; 20 per oent, or 820 per share on
August 27th, 1902; 20 per cent, or $20
per share on October 27th, 1002; 20 per
cent, or $20 per shrro on December
27th, 1602. No interest or dividend
will be allowed on the payments made
previous to July 1st or an advuee
payments but all shares fully paid as
above stipulated will take rank for
aividend with existing shares for the
half year ending December 31st, 1002.
No fractional shares will be issued
but rights may bo assigned and f or
this purpose a blank form will be provided. Holders having lights for fractions of shares should make such ad
justment of their holdings by purchase or Bale with otherj shareholders
direct or through brokers as will

ANNUAL HEALTH REIORT.
Dr. Laliau Deals Exhaustively With
Prevention of Infectious Diseases.
At a metting of the city council last
evening, after the reading of the
minuteB of the previous meeting, part
oj the report of the Finance committee was read, the rest of the repurt,
the chairman stated, would not be
ready until the next meeting of the
committee which would be held on
Friday night. At the last meeting it
had been midnight when the committee adjourned and there was still a
large number of matters to be dealt
w ith.
The city clerk stated that there had
been thirteen applications received in
reply to tho advertisement for a new
fire chief. It was thought that as
there was a number of papers to go
into in aconncction wilh this that it
should be laid over until the adjourned
meeting of the council, the date for
whioh shoud be set later on. This
waa agreed to and the city clerk was
reuested to read the names of the
applicants which were as follow : T.
A. Ackerman, New Westeminster; H.
E. Campbell, Vancouver; C. Collins
Rossland; T. Deasy, Victoria; E. B.
Irving, Nelson; J. A. Lester, Vancouver; T. Lillie, Nelson; J. A.
Little, Portage la Prairie; T H.
Manuel, Winnipeg; F. H. Mackenzie,
(Irani Forks; Edward Reece, Grand
Forks; Thomas Sargeant, Toronto;
John F. Taylor,Toronto.
The next item of business was the
receipt of the report of the eity medical health officer. The greater part
of the report dealt with the necessity
of stringent precautions against sn-all
pox. In Nelsou during the yesr there
had been four cases, all of which bad
been traced to outside infection. Tbe
spread of the disease through both
the United States and Canada, and
particularly the former country, had
been very great during the past year
and the only way to secure immunity
was by the use of the most rigorous
precautions. Universal vaccination
was a necessity. The medical profession had been fat too lax in the use
of mild disinfectants and used method
which experience had shown were
inadequate to stamp out the disease.
Tho report quoted approvingly the law
in Germany whicb made it obligatory
for every child to be vaccinated during the first twelve months of life and
alsu at the age of ten years. These
laws had been passed after the terrible
epidemic that swept Germany in 1871.
Many statistics were quoted to show
tho advantages of vaccination as
shown in Germany where the law was
enforced as compared with adjoining
lands where it was not. It was not
contended that vaccination prevented
smallpox altogether, but it greatly
modified the virulence of the attack.
Much of tbe prejudice against vaccination arose* from the fear that impure
lymph might be used, or carelessness
on the part of tne operator, and perhaps in the earlier days of vaocination
there were seme grounds for these
fears, but now there were practically
none. There had been four deaths in
the city from typhoid. The lessening
of the number of caaes of tllis disease
be attributed to tbe expansion of the
water and sewerage systems of the city
and he recommended that only oity
water be used, He also dealt with the
necessity of proper precautions being
takon to prevent surpace   water   flow-
portion of the city's supply comes
from. At present there were several
small mining camps high up on the
slope above the lako and if these camp i
should bo enlarged there would be
danger of contamination of the wator
unless precautions were taken in time
The cows from which the city's supply
ot milk was taken had all boen examined by the oity veterinary surgeon,
who reported that there was none of
them suffering from tuberculosis or
othor infectious disease. In connection with tuberculosis attention was
called to the necessity of guarding
against expectoration in public as
being a common source ot infection
The necessity of an isolation hospital
was touched on, and tho report suggested that If a small building could
be erected in tho hospital grounds,
with a tight door and painted walls
it would be possible to disinfect it
properly at any time. An experienced
nurse would also be a good person to
keep employed at tbe general hospital
where her services could bo obtained
at any time. Also arrangements oould
be made that a mother could bring a
child suffering from scarlet fever or
other infectious diseases of childhood
and stay with them at the hospital.
The report recommended that either
the Chinese laundries at the foot of
Victoria street by removed or else a
sewer bo built to them. It was advisable that all Chinese should be kept,
in one quarter, as owing to their sc-
sretive habits in case of illness it was
very difficult to keep proper watch
over them when scattered around.
The conncil decided to meet again
on Wednesday night when the committee will deal with the applications
for fire chief aud also to ou formed
into a board of health to consider thc
report of the medical officer.

MOULDING PUBLIC OPINION.
Edwin Farrer is playing a star engagement in B. C. just now writing
loyalty articles for the C. P. R. Farrer
is well known to many Canadians
He gained prominence on the Toronto
Ulobe where he wrote commercial
union articles and on the New York
Hun where no wrotu annexation literature at the time uf Sir John's last
campaign, says the Sandon Paysteak.
The market for annexation literature
pinched ont a few years ago, and
Farrer has since heen working on tbe
loyalty line for the Canadian Paoiflc.
Just at present he is devoting his at-
t:ntion to thut 50,000-acre coal reserve
over at Mortise;, which he wants to
tec ure for his company.
The mode of procedure in these land
grabs is very simple. Farrer writes
special dispatches pointing out thu
great danger to the British Columbia
smelting industry of letting JimJIlill
into thu Crow's Nest. Hu pictures how
Hill will haul all thu coal to Montana, thereby starving the Kootenay
reduction works out of existence, and
strongly advises, tbe Dominion
government to display its loyalty by
presenting these remaining coal lands
to the C. P. Ii. so that thoy may not
he acquired hy tlie community of interests. He carefully refrains from
insinuating that the C.P.R, might also
he purchased by Hill and Co. at anytime, if such lias not already been
done, and he rings in enough patriotism to malte the Article go down with
the ignorant elector. These dispactb.es
nre wired to newpapers call over the
country free of charge. Papers under
the direct control of the railway, such
us the Vaneouvor Province and the
Winnipeg Free Press invariably pnb-
lis these dispatches in full, making
la e editorial splurges about the
subject, waving the old flag and going
into convulsions about tbe United
State6 railway invasion. Other papers
not so oompletely under the control of
the corporation frequently publish the
Matter to fill up space or earn a pass
on tbe railway. Quite a number of
little weekly papers such as tho Fort
Ktoole Prospaotor and the Oranbronk
Herald can always be depended on to
parade C.P.K. literature whenever it
comes up. The wholesalo publication
of these articles is supposed to create
a feeling favorable to the Canadian
road und allay uneasiness when a
landgrub ia being put through by the
government. Clippings and copies of
the papers are alto produced aronnd
the lobbies by graftur member! to
convince uastern representatives that
the people of the west want the railway to get just exactly what it Is
asking for. When all tins iB done and
the rail vay gets the land grant the
loyalty cry naturally dies.
party. What the convention should j
have done' would "more properly
have been to declare Mr. Martin the
leader of one-third of the party. Mr.
Martin would like to be premier of
the province, but as he has added
largely to tho number of political opponents by bis aotion in excluding the
delegates at Vancouver it locks as
though he is farther away from the
honor than ever.
Mr. Martin has ever been a disturber of the political peace and there
never will be auy stability In any government in which be has tbe least
say and if he should em igrate to
some other province und infliot himself upon it. Mr. Martin has resided
in the province for about six years,
whieh shou'd be as long as any community should have such an exaggerated infliction as he is.
When Mr. Martin has rounded off
his career in Canada lie should become
a citizen of one of the S'lUtta or Central American republics where revolutions occur frequently. He would then
be in his proper element . What this
province needs and must have is a
stable government���not one addicted
to revolutionary acts. The credit of
the province for stability is at a low
ebb, and the wonder is that a man of
Mr. Martin's type oan secure any following when his methods, ways and
customs are bo well known,and he may
be relied on, should tho opportunity
be given him, to still further injure it
good name, both at home and abroad.
Home raeansshould be found to efflect-
ually squelch this porfessional brawler
and disturber.

Kaslo, concerning the Liberal convention whioh met lust week in Vancouver.    From the statement mnde by   Mr.
Buchanan, who was a delcgate.it will
be   seen   that   Mr.   Martin   and   his
henchmen acted in   an   arbitrary   aud
illegal manner in   excluding   Senator
Templeman and   his   associates   from
having a voice in the   deliberations of
the convention.    The New   Wustmins-
ter Liberal convention of 1697 authorized the exe:ntive to DjabQ rules under
whioh thu eon Ten tion should be called.
Acting   under thu authority   so   delegated the executive decided   that    the
members of the executive nnd tbe editors of Liberal newspapers  should   be
eligible as delegates.     Notwithstanding this the executive and tho   editors
of Liberal papers,who wore present as
delegates,   woru debarred from taking
part- in the proceedings of the  convention.   What the Martlnities hoped to
gain by such   action   it is difficult   to
discern.     Hy  this     action   the   duly
authorized delegates   of   nearly   two-
thirds   of   tho   Liberal     party   were
estranged, and by the vote of a   small
fraction over ono-third Mr.Martin was
declared to be the leader of tbe Liberal
3RUSADE AGAINST WILDCATS.
The people of Helena, Montana, are
determined to do all tbat they can to
expose fradulont mining companies
wbich make that city their headquarters. The necessity for this grew out
ol the fact tnat a large number of ir-
sponsible companies have been formed,
which aro selling their shareB throughout the east, to the harm of the credit
of Helena. Many letters have been received from the east and elsewhere
asking il confidence can be placed ln
some uf the oompanios. An examination of the records has revealed in
some instances that the companies
have no legal existence except iu the
imagination of the confidence men
who are disposing of their worthless
shares to confiding people. It has
boen decidetd in the future that every
mining company that claims Helena
as its home shall bo investigated by a
committee of the Helena Business
Men's UBBOoiation. Those that aie
found to be fraudulent and of the
"wildcat" variety will be thoroughly
exposed through tbe medium of- tne
press. In thia way, it is thought, the
fraudulent companies can bo prevented from imposing on the public by
obtaining money from it on false
pretences. Thc scheme is a good one
aud one that might with advantage be
copied by other communities. It ia
these fraudulent and||meritless schemes
that gives mining u bud reputation
nad it is in the best interest of the
industry that frauds of this chaarcter
bo exposed.
CALLED TO THE CABINET.
.Senator Templeman has been appointed to a place in the Dominion
cabinet without a portfolio, but it is
stated that he will, within a abort
time, bo made minister of marine and
fisheries. British Columbia has long
needed a servant in the cabinet and
now that the coveted honor of repre<
ssmation in the chief execuive bodv of
tiho Dominion has been secured, naturally thore is lejoicing over the event
and this is materially increaed bj
the fact that so able, so ropresenta>
tive, so popular, a gentleman aB Mr.
Templeman bas been called to till the
exalted place. Senator Templeman
has been a consistent and loyal Liberal and hus worked energetically
and earnestly to secure the advancement of his party, and he never faltered in his devotion to the great'piin-
cles of Liberalism in all thu years
that he has resided iu the province;
although his home city, Viotoria, waa
for a long time a stronghold of the
Conservatives and the honor of being
culled to the cabinet comes to him as
a suitable reward tor his constancy.
Senator Templeman knows the wants
uf tbo province thoroughly and may
bu relied on to see that they aro not
neglected while ho is a member of the
Laurier cabinet. The people of tho
province are to bo congratulated that
he has beeu selected for so important
a place.
The fragmentary Liberal convention
at Vancouver has declared for .party
lines, and most people are asking
what is going to happen now, says
the Victoria Colonist. It tho conven-
iton had beon harmonious and reached such a conclusion, there might be
some object in speculating on the consequences, but as things have turned
out, the wisest course seems to be to
await developments.

There ia noth inf? like Asthmalene. It

The Rev. O. F. WELLS, o Villa Ridge,

tell you how thankful I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, ohained
with putrid sore throat and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1

this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, nnd thought you-had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial acted like a

My wife oommenced taking it about tho first of November. 1 very soon notioed

One of the officials of the road had
Invited a party of gentlemen to take a
little pleasure excursion over a part of
the line on bis private car. Before the
appointed day he was taken sick and
called In his chef and commissary.
"Eph," he said, "I have asked these
friends and can neither go with them
nor disappoint them. I want you to
give them the best there Is in the larder
and sec that It is served as well as It
would be at the best hotel ln the
world."
Eph scratched his head and looked
troubled, but simply sold, "Yes, sah."
On thc return several of the gentlemen congratulated the official upon
hnving such a "man," and one or two
Intimated that If Eph ever wanted another position he wovld havo no trouble In securing it.
Finally Eph reported. "It wa' a great
outiii, snh," he assured his employer.
"Yns, sah; dat's right, snh; a stupen-
dlfielous outln, snh. De gcm'men all
done me proud, nnd I tells 'em It wu'
you, snh."
Then Eph showed thc bill, and lt waa
a stunner for length and amount ne
stood hnt In hand until the official said:
"Pretty steep, Eph; pretty stoop. Nothing left out nnd nothing but tbe best."
"Pat's right, snh. I was fusticnted

cooked and served, sah, jes' like lt wa'

The Smothering Scen��.
As to stage appointments, there
were no plush or velvet curtains or
couches draped with sntln In early
days. The furniture wns as unpretentious ns the costumes. Indeed on one
occasion when a indy was playing Des-
deinona to her husband's Othello a disastrous nnd nt the same time ludicrous
effect, though of course unrehearsed,
had been Imminent through the lack of
even a nail or two to make an old stool
steady,
It was thc smothering scene, and the
couch was made up of two chairs and a
rickety stool covered, of course, with
the simplest draperies���a red merino
curtain trimmed with yellow worsted
fringe. Imagine a Desdemonn endeavoring to recline gracefully, all the while
feellrg portions of her couch sliding
from under her.   This Is bow the scene
. was played out:

[ A conductor on the Park line hnd an
; experience the other day that Is quite
certain to cause him many uneomforta-
j ble minutes In the future. His car
i stopped at Spruce street to let a mlddlo
aged lady on, and as she took her Beat
I the conductor gave the motorman two
; bells, and the car shot ahead. When
: the conductor entered the car, the wo-
| man In question wns looking out of the
! window and did not see his outstretch-
' ed hand.
��   "Fare, please,"  remarked the conductor.
!    The woman evidently did not hear
him, for she did not turn ber head.
: Neither did she bold out the necessary
coin.
I    "Fare, please," said the conductor ln
a louder tone.
I   But the woman paid no heed.   Then
the conductor touched her on the shoulder and ln a tone of voice that rang
through the car exclaimed:
t,   "Your fare, please, lady!"
r   Then   the   woman   turned   hastily
around and looked at the conductor.

The veteral editor of the Golden

wbo uses only the old reliable George
Washington brand of truth In hi*

"A Larimer county farmer lost ��
cow In a very queer manner last week.
The animal ln rummaging through a
summer kitchen found and swallowed
oa old umbrella and a cake of yeast
The yeast, fermenting In the poor
beast's stomach, raised the umbrella,
and she died ln great agony."
Spanish Ifnmor.
Borne recent jokea from Madrid, giving an idea of contemporaneous Spanish humor:
"But why do you marry so poor a
woman?"
"To revenge myself. I have suffered
much ln this world."
"Ah, I understand���an unhappy love
affair."
"No. I nm marrying a poor woman to
make my creditors rave!"
Gedeon goes to confer with thc president of the Society For the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals.
"What do you want?"
"I desire to be protected. My wife
treats me like a dog."
Medical consultation:
"now do you find me, doctor?"
"Very bad. You are worn out. and It
ls necessary that you give up all head
work."
"That would ruin mp, doctor. Don't
you know I'm a barber?"
Among women friends:
"Now I am sure that Ernesto wauls
to marry me."
"What ground have you for saying
that?"
"I've noted that Ernesto begins to be
unable  to  stand   mamma.".
Writing an Ad.
Did you ever stop to think, you who
read the advertisement In the newspapers, just what lt means to get up the
"ad." every day for a big department
store? Thc man In charge usually has
a staff of assistants, who are assigned
to certain departments of the store
each day. They must familiarize ihem-
selves with the stock of these departments, while tbo manager of the advertising department himself ls supposed to keep thoroughly In touch
witb the entire stock of the store. Uo
writes the general Introduction to the
advertisement each day nnd edits the
copy turned In to him by his assistants,
just as nn editor handles the copy of
bis reporters.
"Just as much care ls taken with
this matter as though It were so much
Imperishable literature," said tbe advertising manager of a big department
store. "You sometimes hear of a famous author spending hours over one
paragraph, writing It and rewriting it
to get tbe best nnd strongest effect.
You wouldn't think that would be necessary lu writing an advertisement,
but It is. My assistants sometimes
spend nn bour over one sentence. There
Is moro science ln writing an advertisement tbat will bring results than
perhaps In any other form of composition."

A Fated Spot.
Abont a mile south of the Michigan
state line and near Cedar lake, Indiana,
is a small spot of land upon wbich
vegetation absolutely refuses to grow.
The surrounding soil, though apparently the same, Is very productive. The
spot is less than 20 feet in diameter
and Is located In a grove which tradition declares to have been the torture ground of the Bawbeesc Indians.
BoffsTed.
While traveling In Cornwall In 1801
Rev. S. Baring-Gould came near belli?
overwhelmed In a bog. He and his com
paulons got lost and at dusk found
themselves in a bog called Rcduilre.
Six bullocks had already been lost
there that year. Mr. Baring-Gould's adventure Is related In his "Book of the
West."
"All nt once I sank above my wnlst
and wns being sucked farther down. I
cried to my companion, but in the darkness he could not see me, and had lis
seen me he could have done nothing
for me. The water finally reached my
armpits.
"Happily I had a stout bamboo some
six feet long, and I placed this athwart
the surface and held It with my arms
as far expanded ns possible. By jerks
I succeeded ln gradually lifting myself
aad throwing my body forward till
finally I wns able to cast myself nt full
length on the surface. The suction hnd
been so great as to tear my leather
gaiters off my legs.
"I lay at full length gasping for nearly a quarter of an hour before I hnd
brentb and strength to advance, and
then wormed myself along on my
breast till I reached dry land. My companion, It turned out, had had a similar
experience."
An Ample Kitchen.
What ls said to be the largest kitchen
tn England Is tbat of Raby Castle, (lie
seat of tbe Duke of Cleveland. It ls 30
feet square, having three chimneys,
one for the grate, a second for the
stoves, and the third for the great
caldron. The roof ls arched, with a
small cupola ln the center. It has five
windows, from each of which step9
descend, but only ln one Instance to the
floor, and a gallery runs round the
whole interior of the building. The
ancient oven has a diameter of 15 feet
Vast as this kitchen Is, It must hove
been sometimes taxed by the hospitality of former ages, for ln one of the
apartments of tbe great castle TOO
knights were upon one occasion entertained at the same time. And the
knights of thnt day were men of brawn
