The doivager empress and the emperor touched glasses with their

animatedly, sin- said that China
would abandon her policy of isolation
and adopt tho best features of western
life and would tend many students
abroad. Afterwards the dowager empress and the emperor mingled with
tbeir guests and her majesty conversed
with ever one and particularly noticed
the children. Every lady of the visiting party was given a pair of jewelled

reoeived the ladies and children of the ,
members of the diplomatic corps today j
in the private apartments of the
palace. Mrs. Conger, wife ot United
States Minister Conger, as doyenesse
of the diplomatio corps and the
duwager empress exchanged speeches.
The visitors afterwards were entertained at a banquet during which the
dowager empress and the emperor
mingled informally with their guests.
The dowager empress grasped Mrs.
Conger's hand, wept oopiously and in
broken words expressed the sorrow
whieh she felt on account of the
ojenrences during the siege of the
legations. Magnificent jeweled
bracelets, lings and other souvenirs
were presented to the visitors.
The  dowager empress, the  emperor
nnd the empress this afternoon received  the   ladies   and   children   of   the
members of the   diplomstlc   corps   lu
the piivate apartments of the   palace.
The  audience  was the   most   revolutionary event since the return   of  the
court to Pekin.     Tne exelusiveness of
Chinese    royalty   and the prejudices
against the meeting of the  sexes were
waived and thc function ss less formal
than is usual in European courts. The
dowager empress occupied the throne,
with     a    brilliant    assemblage    of
princesses and  court ladies about her.
The omperor was seated upon a   small
plntform   in   the   centre of the room.
The visitors   upon   entering ascended
the throne and bowed to the dowager.
Mrs.   Conger,   wife  of United States
Minister Conger and doyenesso of tbe
diplomatio corps, read a speech which
was translated by Secretary Williams.
Mrs. Conger said:   We heartily   congratulate    you    and    the    Imperial
court  that the  unfortunate  situation
which led you to abandon your beautiful   capital   has   been    so    happily
em'ed,   that you are now permitted to
return in   freedom   and   peace.     The
events of the past two years must have
been as painful  to you as to the rest
of the world,   bnt the sting of the experience  may   be eliminated  by  the
establishment of franker,more trustful
and  friendlier  relations between   the
Chinese  and the   other people of  the
earth.   The world is moving forward,
the tido of progress cannot be   stayed,
and it is hoped that   China   will  join
with the great  sisterhood of nations
in thc grand march.     The recent  imperial edits give promise of great good
to  yonr   people   and   to   your    vast
The dowagers reply was exceedingly
friendly in tone. It was in part as
follows: Last year the dissensions in
the palace caused a resolution which
compelled our histy departure; but it
>s great gratification to us that our return to the capital has caused such
rejoicing in Ci.ina and abroad.
Baron Ozikana, the Austrian minister, and doyen of the diplomatic corps
presented all the ladies to the
dowager empress who took the hand
ot ench of them. They were next presented to the emperor who also shook
hands witb them. The guests then
retired to an ante-room. The dowager
empress onteiing this room, grasped
Mrs. Conger's hand which she held foi
some minutes, trembling, weeping
nnd sobbing loudly and exclaiming in
broken sentences that the attaek npon
the legations was a terrible mistake
and that she repented it bitterly. In
reply Mrs.Conger assured her that the
past would be forgotten.
Braoelets and rings of great value
were then placed upon Mrs. Conger's
wrists and fingers. The dowager
empresB made inquiries regarding the
other ladies who were in Pekin during
the siege of the legations and the
wives of Secretaries Bainbridge and
Morrise and the American and French
secretaries were presented and warm-
'j greeted. Following the reception a
banquet was given. This was spread

Washington, Feb. 1, ��� General
Cbaffoe has cabled to the War depart
ment a report of the march of Major
Waller and his marines across Samar.
It is tbe first full account of the march
and tells a tale of terrible suffering
and hardship. Major Waller, four
officers and 50 men of the marine
corps; Lieut Lyles of the Twelfth infantry and 30 native bearers started
during the last week in December
from Lanang on the east coast of
Samar to cross the island to Basey,
about 35 miles distant.
The story of their sufferings is   told
in the following dispatch:     The War
department is advised of   the   trip  of
Major   Waller,   four   officers   and   50
men   of   the   marine corps. 36   native
bearers with four   days rations,   who
started   tbe   last  week   of  December
from   Lanang   on   the   east coast cf
Samar to cross   the   Island   to   Basey
about 35 miles on tbe map.   Tbe trail
at one  time existed but was found in
places only.     Lieut.   Lyles,   Twelfth
infantry accompanied   the   command.
Incessant  rains from the start, swollen steams and other natural obstacles
made progress extremely slow.   When
rations   were  consumed, the men became   exhausted rapidly  dreppiug on
the   way.     Major   Waller    separated
from   Captain   Porter,   Lieut. B.   P.
Williams and   the  major part of the
men, proceeded  toward  BaBey  where
he arrived on January   9th  with  two
officers,    13 men,   also   Lieut.    Lyles.
He   returned  to   tbe mountains  next
day with relief but  returned to Basey
about ten  days   later    unsuccessful.
Porter  was  to  build   rafts  but   the
timber would not float.     The  second
day  after    separating   from   Waller,
Porter moved toward Lanang, arriving
January  11th   with   two men and all
exhausted,  physically and   mentally.
Lieut.   R.   P.   Williams and over  30
men had been left in the mountains in
a  similar oondition with native bearers. The relief expedition under Lieut.
Kenneth P. Williams, First  infantry,
were detained from   starting for  two
days by a storm raging, and a torrent
swollen  river.     They   started    Jan.
11th, reached the marines  Jan.   18th,
saving Lieut. Williams and all except
ten men not found,   who are no doubt
dead  from  starvation,   namely  Ptes.

Kettle died in the hospital at   Tacto-
ban, on January 23rd; Captain Porter,
Lieut. Williams and 18 men are in the
hospital  at  Tactoban,   not very clear
in mind regarding much of time  covered by the period of  suffering.     All
will probably recover.     Major Waller
at present is disordered in   his   recollections.    The  suffering of this command for 20 days cannot be described.
The efforts ot Lieut.   Williams,   First
inlantry,   and   his    relief  party   are
unequalled fur courage snd labor.

in a letter forwarded yesterday to Sir
Thomas Lipton, provides for an exchange of crews and a race for a cup
which Mr. Post offered to donate, to

Various suggestions have been

that it will be most convenient for the
steamship to dock on one side of the

A German version of Jerome K.
Jerome's "Miss Hobbs" was produced
at the Royal theatre yesterday evening. The audience enjoyed the play
but the critics predict that it will not
draw long. The Amerioan oolony here
celebrate St. Valentine's day by giving a minstrel show, the first to be
witnessed in Germany. It is for the
benoflt of the American Girls' club, of
which Mrs. White, wife ot the United

Twenty states will be represented in
the cast.
Prof. Ernest Von   Halle   who with
Tjard Schwartz,   visited   the   United
States  to   study  shipbuilding, in behalf ol the German marine  ministry,
writes to  today's  Wocht   advooating
some sort of governmental  measure to
prevent   Americans   from    acquiring
German  steamship lines.    Among the
suggestions    is    that   the    lines  be
officered by government officials,   the
ownership      remaining    in    private
bands,   as   in   the case of the Reiohs-
bant-,   or  making  the ownership of
such stock unlawful for non-Gremans.
He   points out  the   difficulty   of the
government's  buying   the companies
outright,   as   it  would  involve    the
acquisition  of   property   at  ports all
over the world, wbich might   lead  to
complications.      Be   says,   however,
that as a result of his Inquires he does
not  believe   Americans have  bought
much German steamship stock.     Professor Von Halle believes it is theoretically possible for Americans to buy a
majority of tbe stock of German companies but he says German   financiers
do not believe the   Morgan   group  of
capitalists   possess    such    irresistible
capital    as   outsiders   imagine,   and
asserts   tbat   tho seemingly  gigantic
capital   of   the   United   States  iB  so
strongly watered that it  might disappear in times of a crisis.
Christian science promoted by Mrs.

Protest to the Last Thei
Butler, Pa., Feb. l.-With the close
of a day of intense excitement and
many conflicting stories concerning
the chances for life of the wounded
Riddle brothers and Mrs. Kate Soffel,
tbe unexpected has happened. John
Biddle, who until late (his afternoon
was considered the most healthy of tbe
brothers, sucoumbed at 1.35 p. in,
Mrs. Soffel developed symptoms of
pneumonia this afternoon after having come safely through an operation
this morning for the extraction of
the bullet. She is the only one of the
trio who has any chance of life.
The     death   of   Jack   Biddle   was
caused   by   the  bullet wounds in   his
abdomen and bladder.     Early in  the
day the physicians thought peritonitis
was the principal danger in his   case,
but tonight  internal   hemorrhages set
in  and tne man   bled to   death  in  a
short while.   As long as he was able,
Jack was extremely talkative and was
almost boastful.     But as soon as the
shadow   of   death   began to fall upon
him, aod be recognized it,   he become
repentant.   "I know," said he, "that
my  time   here is  short, and you can
say for me that I am a  Christian  and
will die a sincere believer in God and
hope I will  have  strength  enough to
say so at  tbe   last.    I know  I have
taken   part   in   many wrong  doings,
but I have never killed   any man   and
waa   never   implicated with any   one
who did.     I   wish   I could see   Mrs.
Kahney.     1  wonld tell her the  truth
abont the killing ol her husband. The
life has been pretty tough tc  me  and
the end cannot come too quick and  I
don't care how quick.''
Ed Biddle was unconsious the
latter part of the day and it was evident to all tbat bis length of life was
short. Hemmorrhage of the lungs
kept him almost continually chokea.
A sister of the Biddies arrived in town
this evening and was admitted to the
jail but Ed was unable to recognize
her.   He diedjat 11 o'clock.
A   lost   love letter from Ed   Biddle
to Mrs. Kate Soffel found in the snow
near the bloody scene of their capture,
reveals the long oareful plot for  their
escape    from   the   Alleghany   county
jail.     The   letter   clearly shows  the
hazardous undertaking of   tbe infatuated  woman   to  secure  the escape of
the   Biddies.     Since   December  2nd,
1901, they   had been making  preparations to esoape. The discovered epistle
tells how Mrs. Soffel carried the saws
to the cells of the Biddies.     It  manifests the extreme enamoiatien of Mrs.
Soffel for the murderer   aod   burglar.
It clearly Bhows the  wonderful  influence Ed Biddle had over Mrs.   Soffel.
Mrs.Soffel fell in love with Ed.Biddle
in November.    The burglar soon realized his  power over her.     It was not
long  until   he   started to write  love
letters to her.     His  affection was reciprocated.    Mrs. Soffel fell madly in
love   with  Ed   Biddle   and about tbe
early part of December  be proposed a
plan of escape to her.    She consented
to leud him her aid.    Between December 14th and 10th they had   completed
all arrangements to  escape  lrom   the
jail.   Then they learned of the governor's respite,   after   this   Ed    Biddle
almost persuaded   Mrs.   Soffel   to   fly
witb bim and his brother.     The  contents   of   the   letter   showed   it   was
originally agreed that Mrs. Soffel was
to   leave   the oity  for Canada on  the
evening of the boys' escape.     In this
regard tho letter says: It will be easy
for   you   to go to   Buffalo,     then   to
Niagara    which   is   20   miles    lrom
Buffalo, from there   take   a   bus  and
cross over tho   Suspension   bridge  to
Canada.    Yon will meet custom honse
officers  when you reach thc Canadian
side. Go to a bank get yonr American
money changed into Canadian  money,
then ask some boy   or   woman  where

and get a ticket for Toronto,

Inquest Gives No Clue to Cause of War
Eagle Accident.
Kossiand, I'eb. 1.���At the inquest
on Feter Ilolcombe who was killed on
Thursday in the War Eagle mine, it
would seem by the story told by Foreman Tippet, Electrician McVicar and
the hoist engineer, Treinbath, that
the deceased had been working in tho
shaft during tbe noon hour, but at a
quarter to one lie had come to the
hoist engineer and stated he was
through with the skip. Nothing further is known of his movements up to
the time his body was found, still
After the deceased had warned
Trombath that he was done witb tbe
skip, it was used in hoisting timbers.
On the third trip the skip was accompanied by the foreman and electrician ; it was then that the body was
discovered. Whether tbe deceased had
llrst fallen down tbe shaft.into which
he bad evidently entered after reporting his work closed, or whether he
had been hit by the skip while leaning through the ladder way to oil tbe
rollers and so was precipitated down
the incline, will probably never Ve
known. In either way the accident
could have happened. The gloves and
candle of the deceased were found on
tbe 300 foot level. All tho injuries
were found to be on the right side of
tho body.     There was a severe wound
00 the head, the right leg was fractured and the neck broken. After viewing the body and deciding that no
nntopsy wus necessary, the jury was
taken to the scene of the aecident,and
then being on the ground took the evidence of the mino employes, adjourning till this evening.

expended ln the province. From these
figures he almost approves the foresight of those who opposed tbe union
and contends that the terms should be
adjusted. The terms are now unjust
and an injustice should be removed or
remedied when it is found that an Injustice exists. He advises tbe members
from the province sitting in the Houes
of Commons to stand together on this
point, independent of party, until
justice is secured. With so largo an
area to develop as this province has,
its present revenues are inadequate
and a oasis should be arranged by
which the provinco would procure a
definite proportion of the revenue
collected by the Dominion, not that
the Dominion should spend more

Copper continues to advance both in
New Y'ork and London and in the
former place is approaching the 13
cent mark and no considerable quan
tity can bo obtained for future delivery for less than 13 cents. In the
London market the price ranges from
��f>4 5s for immediate delivery to ��54
17s. 6d for future delivery. As the
metal is on the upper grade there is
no telling where it will stop on the
lower side of 17 cents and it is re
moteiy possible that the reaction may
carry it a little beyond that point.
It is now evident that stock manipu
latious had considerable to do with
the fall in the price of copper. The
mid-monthly copper report of James
Lewis and Son, of Liverpool, dated,
Jan. 10th,hns tlie following to say of
the situation:
Further aotion has been taken by
American operators to prepare the
ground for a sharp reaction in copper
and copper shares,    and a return to   a
igher level of values. Successive
"cuts" in the New York quotation for
Lake copper to 1!! 1-8 cents por lb. oi
the 6th inst., and to 11 1-8 cents on
the 13th inst. have been made, accompanied by the sale of vety little copper, the object evidently being not to
sell copper hut to put down the price
of copper shares; thus facilitating
tbe covering of pievions sale and the
acquisition of a largo holding of tbe
latter at low price.
We understand thnt a "a pcol" is
formed or has already been formed, to
taae over chief part of the surplus
stock of copper in the Unitrd States
on favorable terms nod hold it for six
months, if necessary. That the larger
producers have expressed their will
Ingnesi to reduce their output pro
rata with that of the Amalgamated
Company's minim, so that tbo snr-
phts stocks may bo gradually absorbed
and production not exceed eonsump
tion, there is little or no doubt. We
presume, therefore, that as soon as a
Sufficient number of copper shares
have been ucqnired by American operators the world will be informed of
the arrangements made to diminish
production aud to hold the surplus
stock of copper until 3ueh time a,, it
is required by consumers. This will
naturally be followed by a rapid
advance in the price of copper, accompanied by a sharp rebound in that of
copper sliBrcs.
F. J. Procter, of Vancouver, Iibb
published a small brochuro on the
financial position of tho pr ivinee,
ns he calls it, The Financial Crisis
in llritish Columbia. In tins tho state
of the budget of the province IB re
viewed frum the standpoint of an expert ccr.untant. The author opens with
n general statement "f the revenue and
expenditure for past years under topical headings and analyces the proba
bility of the Increase  or decrease  of
each.      He argues that It   is   unlikely
that in any Department of expenditure
much reduction can he effected except
in that of public works, and under
this head the amount spent now is
not as Inrgu ns it should be. For the
four years previous to HltiO the annual
deficit was abont $415,000 and tho
average excess of expenditure over
receipts for thc past fourteen years
was about JI7 per cent.
The author then pusses under review
tho various items set down in tho
financial statement as assets, snd
nrgucs thnt though these cost money
it is doubtful whether such things ns
roans, trails and bridges con be called
realisable asset, while as to wild lands,
the receipts from these have been included in the receipts of the yonr.
The amount contributed to the
Dominion treasury in the customs nnd
other dues levied by the federal
authorities is then commented upon
and it is shown that since tbo province
joined Confederation its people have
paid into the Dominion treasury tilt,-
000,000 more than   thc  Dominion  bins
Canada's aggregate foreign trade
on the basis of imports for consumption and exports for tbe six months
ending December 31st was 813,005,066
ahead of the name period in 1900.
The imports show an increase of
$8,070,537, while the exports advanced
by $5,53^,529. Compared with the
latter half of 1900 there was an Increase of nearly two millions in exports of fisheries, of a million in animals and their produce, of over three
millions in agricultural products, and
of three-quarters of a million in man
A year ago an oflioial estimate of
the fighting Btrength of the Boers was
15,000 men. During the past yoar
1,182 Iloers were killed, 707 wounded,
8,18(1 taken prisoners, and 2,172 surrendered, making a total of 14,877.
Three months since Mr. Brodenck
estimated that the fighting strength of
the Boers at 10,000 men, and sinoe
then 3,000 Boers have been put out of
action and this would leave but 7,000
to continue the resistance. Tbe question is where do tho Burghers secure
tbeir reinforcements from to oontinue
the resistance? From tbe peace overtures and certain other signs, it is evi
dent thai, the end of the struggle is
close at hand.

Fifteen sets are to bo printed and
eight are to be sold in America and
seven in Euiope. Each set will contain 130 volumes and the cost is at

The Rev. O. P. WELLS, o Villa Bidge,

tell you how thaukful 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
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, and thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aoted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

W. Danger  Attends   Thia   Spdrt  Except From tha Animal's Heel*.
A good giraffe skin is worth from $10
to >-' > in South Africa and much more in
Europe. On their hunting trips 10 or 13
rears ego it was a common matter tor
one bnuter to kill 40 or 00 of these graceful animals in one day. The reason for
this is that the giraffe Is the most Innocent of animals and easily hunted. They
are absolutely defenseless, and there in
hardly u cane ou record where a wounded
giraffe turned upou the huuter. It is
nun, they have great powerB of speed,
and they can dodge rapidly from tree to
tree ln the woods, out they offer such a
fuir mark that tkese tactics hardly ever
save them.
Not until lt Is unusually frightened
docs the giraffo make Its best speed, and
then it Is often too late, for the hunter
Is upon It. There ls really no element
of danger connected with this sporl,
nnil that makes it less exciting and attractive to a true sportsman. Under cer-
tnin circumstances it Is possible to be Injured wilh the powerful legs of the giraffe, which are capable of kicking a
blow thnt would kill a Hon. The latter
boast, for this reason, takos good care tu
iitini li the giraffo at unexpected moments-
It takes a good horse to run down a gi
mil's', nnd If the least advantage la permitted the wild creature tht race Is lost.
Its peculiar gait is very ungraceful and
deceptive, but It covers the ground witb
remarkable facility. In ths opeu veldt
the hunters have always the best of the
race, hut the giraffe, when surprised,
mnkes Instantly for the forest, where
tniittb vines and intermingling branches
miike travel difficult for the nunter. The
bushes nnd thorns tear and lacerate the
skin of the horses, but the tough skin of
the giraffe le barely scratched. Tbe
creature will tear a path through the
toughest and thickest jungle and never
suffer in the least.
This skin, or hide, of the animal Is It*
chief article of value. No wonder thnt
the bullets often fail to penetrate this
Bkin, for it is from three-quarters to an
inch thick and as tough ns it is thick.
This skin when cured and tanned makes
excellent leather for certain purposes.
Thc Boers make riding whips and san-
dnls out of tbe skins they do not send to
Europe. The bones of the giraffe have
also a commercial valuo. The leg bones
are solid insteud of hollow, and In Europe they aro In great demand for manufacturing buttons and other bone articles. The teudons of the giraffe ar* so
strong that they will sustain an enormous dead weight, which gives to them
pecuniary value.��� Scientific American.
Weird Effect of Phoaphoreaoene* au
���t Ship In Bering; Sea.
"I have often heard of-the wonderful
phosphorescence of southern seas," remarked a traveler from the north, "and
I have seen some pretty fair samples of
It In the Atlantic between New York and
English ports, but 1 did not know until
recently that lt prevailed to any extent
In northern waters.
"Last August I was on board a revenue cutter in the Bering nen, about 03
degrees north latitude, bound north,
when one night about 10 o'clock I happened to go on deck, and 1 was almost
tlightened by the sight of the sea. The
wind wns blowing sharp enough to raise
the ivhitccups, and the whole sea look-
id as if it were lighted from Its depths
by s million arc lights, throwing their
white rays upward and under the flying
fiinin. The hollows of the waves were
dark, but every crest that broke showered and sparkled as If it were tilled witb
light. From the sides ot tha ship great
rolls of broken white light fell away, and
she left a broad pathway ot silvery (oan
���s far back as the eyo could reach.
"But about this hour was tht most
striking display. Hera it was as it th*
ship were plowing through the sea of
white light, and as tht water was
thrown back from her prow it (ell In glittering piles of light upon the dark surface beyond nnd was driven far down below, lighting the depths as If all tha electricity of the ocean wert shooting its
sparkles through the waves and turning
itself into Innumerable incandescents
thut Hashed a second and then shut out
forever. I stood on tho forecastle deck
looking down into the brilliant white turmoil of the waters until I began to feel
as if wo were afloat upon some silver
sea, and a really uncanny feeling took
possession ot me. The whits ship was
lighted by the phosphorescence of tbe
waters, so that as high up as the deck
there was a pale, weird white that madt
one feel as if tht 'Plying Dutchman'
were abroad upon the seas and had passed by us. Tlie masts towered in ashy
grny above the decks, and every rope and
Hue stood out distinctly In the light, but
cast no shadow. It waB all as ghostly
as If we had gone up against tbe real
thing, and lt was a positive relief to get
back into the wardroom, where there was
something more human. I don't know
how long It lasted, but when 1 went to
bed at 11 o'clock I could still see the silver shining through the air port ln my
stateroom."���Washington Star.
Only _ Haa'i view.
Dear, dear, what poor, weak, made to
be petted beings some people would havo
us believe men are! Fickle, unstable,
only to be held lu the pnth of right and
duty by tender consideration, gentle coaxing anil constant watchfulness to see thn^
they are in no way crossed. Here's a little of what a minister in New Jersey
gives as serious advice to wives:
"Another way to hold your husband is
to make allowances for his little imperfections. He will smoke in the house
and read the newspaper when you wont
to talk to him, he will go about In his
shirt sleeves nud leave his clothes around
the room; but never mind these triUes.
They are only spots on tho sun. Be patient, and if you ever fall into a wrauglo
be the first one to make up. Never let
(he sun go down on your wrath."
That's a mart's view of thc proper way
to hold a man to tho performance of one
of his highest duties In life, There never
was a man hater���If there ever wns a
woman who could he cnlled that���who
enst such a contemptible light upon man.
What if some womun preacher should
get up and tell the men of the country
how to treat their wives; how to "hold"
them so they will not lose their love for
home nnd family. There is some excuse
for divorce courts if the majority of the
men In the world need to be coddled like
this. Fortunately the women don't believe It. They know tho world is full of
manly men.���New i'ork Times.

Be��ln With the Boya.
Boys should be early taught the heln-
ousness of the offense of spitting, both
from the basis of decency and danger to
public health. It is much easier to prevent the formation of a habit of this
kind in a boy than to correct it In a man,
and herein lies the mother's part in the
warfare against spitting. No extension
of woman's rights is necessary to make
mothers a power in this neglected realm.
All that is required is return to a duty
once faithfully discharged, but in tbe
rush of modern life neglected���the vigilant maternal supervision of boys during
the years in which their habits are
The boy who is taught that to spit on
the hearth, the steps, anywhere about
the house, ls an infringement upon thc
rights of the family that will not be tolerated is not likely as a man to Infringe
upon the rights of tho public by spitting
upon the sidewalks, on the floors or stops
of public buildings or In the cars. In the
meantime, however, there is a generation
of full grown, active spitters to be reckoned with In the Interest of the public
health, and it is the opinion of those who
have given careful attention to tlie matter tbat these cun be reached more effectively by the dissemination of knowledge upon the subject than by city ordinance or state law.���Portland Orego-
Ceremony of ihe Hat.
"The ceremony of the hat Is Bomewhnt
more punctilious than formerly," writes
Mrs. Burton Kingsland of "Good Form
For All Occasions" in The Ladies' Home
Journal. "A man awaits the lady's recognition before he raises his hat ta
her. He also raises his hat when presented to a woman, when meeting and
taking leave of her, when about to address her or when she first speaks to him
���for whatever reason, if he passes her
on a stairway or in front of her in a public conveyance, theater or elsewhere���indeed whenever the least apology would
be In order, when he offers his services ln
any way, even tacitly, or shows her some
trifling courtesy, nnd he should always
raise his hat when acknowledging her
thanks. A man should pay the same
mannerly tribute to her sex when a woman enters an elevator and rcmnin uncovered during her stay therein. He
should also raise his hat upon recognizing an acquaintance who has a lady with
him. If tho friend with whom he may
be bows to a lady, he should show tbe
same courtesy, although she may be unknown to him. Should a lady be with
him and recognize a friend he should lift
his hat."
A Trenauru From the Attlo.
Do you know any one who has folded
sway up ln the attic one of those old
fashioned, hand woven blue and white
coverlids which half a century ago were
the pride and delight of some country
house people's hearts?
If you do, just possess yourself ot it,
and there you have the beginning of a
pair of portieres that will fill the heart of
all your friends with envy and a mad desire for possession.
Rip the seam In tht middle of the coverlid���there Is always a scam In thein���
and this will give you a pair of curtains
a yard and a quarter wide and sometimes
more than two and a half yards long.

Perpetual Silence.
A curious mourning custom obtains
among central Australians, who, although
representing perhaps the lowest nnd most
degraded type of human beings, have
managed to ovolvs a most complex system of rites and ceremonies which governs
nlmost every action of their lives. An
Austrnllnn who has resided for 14 years
among the Aniiitus, aud who has been
Initiated Into all their mysteries, relates
thnt when a husband dies the widow
imluts herself all over with white pigment nnd for the space of a year must
not exhibit herself to n mnlo member of
ihe tribe on pain ot death. For the rest
of her life, unless she marries again,
which is sometimes allowed, she must
not speak, but communicate with the
other women by means of a sign language, consisting of movements ot the
hands and fingers, which has been developed by these savages to a marvelous
extent and by which their limited stock
of ideas can be fully expiessed.
Floral Golden Rale.
Here are five golden rules which should
be observed by those who often nrrnngc
llowers: Use plenty of foliage. Put your
dowers iu very lightly. Use artistic
irlnnses. Do not use more than two or at
tho most three different kinds of flowers
in one decoration. Arrange your colors
to form a bold contrast, or, better still,
a soft harmony. Thc aim of the decorator should be to show off the flowers,
not the vases thnt contain them. Therefore the simpler ones are far preferable
to even the most elaborate. Glasses for
a dinner table should be either white, a
delicate ohado of green, brown or ro��i��
color, according to the flowers arranged
in them.    . __,. .-.',,*.(. ^U^^^Sssji ���**] - _

Yankees Club Together.
In Havana it Is tbo custom to serve
only bread and coffee far breakfast, A
little colony of Americans that felt
they could not do their work until
noon on this kind of a diet cltlbbed
together and began Importing Grape-
Nuts Breakfast Food.
Jne of them writing about the matter, says, "The modern conking range
had Defer bean known In Cui u until
the Amerioan OCJUpation, und even
now tbey aie scarce, so tout a ready
cooked food like iJiupe-Nuts reditu
mends itself to start with ; then the
Yankees were necu'-Ui'iied to the food
and felt they eoulil hardly get along
without it. Tbey could hardly get
along Without it. Tbey begun buying
in live ease lutH nnd one hy one tin
larger grocery stores began keeping
(irupe-Nuts in stock so the business
spreail until now great quantities of
Grape-Nut! are used in Cuba, and it
is not only used by the Americana
but the other Inhabitants ns well."
This is an Illustration of ?ho way
the famous food bus pushed llselt into
all pints ol the world. Wherever
English speaking people go they de-
mat d Qrape-Nutl, They can be found
in South Afrlua, Egypt, India, China
Japan, Australia and South America.

homelike feeling it gives them to see

London decorated with gteat blue
signs with the word, "llrupe-Nuts,"

Forms Thoy Will Teach  and   Salaries

A meeting ol tbe school board was
helu last evening at the office of the
acting secretary. All the members
with the exception of Dr. Arthur were
present. The principal business of
the meeting was arranging the grading of the teachors and their salaries,
in the latter of which lists several
changes were made from the provious
schedule. A letter was read from
Principal Sullivan stating that ho
would prefer not being resent at the
meeting in the capacity requested,
unlcbs It was absolutely necessary.
After stirH#dlsenssioii it was decided
that under the circumstances that It
would hu better for tne school board
to arrange the stale themselves.
As   finally amended   the list rend ns

Some Matters That Will   Engage
Member's Attention.
W. A. Galliher.representative in the
House  of   Commons   for   the   largest
constituency in tho Dominion and one
of the most populous,  Yale-Kootcnay
Cariboo,   leaves     this   morning     for
Ottawa   to   attend   tho   session of the
house.     He   will   stay   two  day; in
Lethbridge   and   the   same   time    in
Winnipeg attending to some   business
matters   and   renewing old acquaintances, and then will go to Toronto on
business previous to reaching Ottawa.
Discussing some of tho more   important matters a-ising from   his   constituency, Mr.   Galliher   mentioned  the
question of imposing an   import duty
on refined lead and lead products, that
the way may be  opened   for   development of all Ihe industries   with which
lead is connected.      He had read with
satisfaction  the news that the Canada
Paint company had in mind the corroding  of lead and the making of paints
therefrom.     That  company  does  not
seem disposed to go ahead   until there
has been a duty imposed   on the goods
it will manufacture.     The Morysville
people also state that they   wilf make
white lead and as it has been the   understanding   that protection would be
granted   as   soon as any firm was  in
position to supply   the   needs   of  the
country, it is probable that the necessary   legislation   will be passed   this
session.     The   west has been   paying
duty for long   enough to nelp  ont the
eastern manufacturers,    said Mr. Gal-
lihci,   and   I think it is   about   time
tbat the east helped   out the   west   to
this extent.
When he got to Ottawa, he said, he
would take up the question of putting
a mail clerk on the Boundary train
from Nelsou to Midway. This would
be a very great convenience to business and the quantity of mail handled
was hufflcien to justify the necessary
expenditure. The Boards of Trade of
Nelson and Trail had taken the matter
up and he hoped tbat Rossland,Greenwood and Grand Forks boards would
strengthen his bauds by doing the
As to Nelson he would again take
up the question of having the baok
part of the post office building carried
up to tbe height of the front. He had
drawn the matter to the attention of
the Public Works department by letter and had been answered that the
additional expenditure could noc be
granted, but he was not going to .stop
at that and would use every endeavor to have the matter reconsidered.
Another matter which he had on his
mind to take up was the dregding of
thc narrows betweer. upper and lower
Arrow lakes. He had arranged that
the amount onco voted for a dredge,
and not expended, should remain on
the estimates and he hoped to have
tbis sum supplemented by sufficient to
complete the dredge and to keep it ln
operation long enough each year to
remove the obstacles to navigation.
Tho department was in favor of building the dredge by contract ns the
work was so far from Ottawa that tho
department hesitated to adopt the day
labor system. Ho had urged tbe government tu put things in such shape

they could not be overtaken. At the

Word comes from the Boundary
that a chamber of very rich ore has
been found in the Winnipeg mine,
near Phoenix. The ore bodies of that
property are large and of the average
grade of the Boundary, but in one
vein in times past some small bodies
of very rich ore has been found but so
small that tho management thought
it would prevent misunderstandings if
little were said about it, the quantity
found at any one time not being more,
perhaps, than a buckettul. The report is made on good authority,
though the company officers Bay nothing about it, that a recont chamber
of this high grade ore was come ou,
out of which $1^,500 worth was taken.
We have tons and tons of rubbers
and overshoes. Wo're selling them in
