Burface  layer of fresh  water restia,

oral explanations have been advau  -
by tlu1 captains of ships of the effecl

that the two water layers move in   !
fereut   dire a: ms    Tbe  true  expi
tlon, howevi r, recently offered by S
tl ish navigators and verified by mat,
matical calculation and direct e: _
ment, is that in addition to the "res:
ance waves" al the surface the ve
creates  a   second   line of subaque
waves between tbe two strata of v
ter.

lie was able to pay for he made the
acquaintance of a remarkable mnn. To
this stranger file Hull confided his miseries. At the conclusion the stranger

war ever invented, at least liy a barbarous people, mir is it easy to eompre- '

making a loud, whizzing noise all the

The Becond volume of "Robinson
Crusoe." by Daniel De Foe,published on
Aug. 20, 1719, was the lirst story published In England with illustrations.
The Illustrations consisted of u map
or the world, In which the different
voyages of the hero of the tale were
delineated. Tbe lirst volume of "Robinson Crusoe" was published in April,
1719, and became popular at once. A
second edition was printed seventeen
days after the first, twenty-five days
later another followed, and a fourth
was published on Aug. 8 of the same
year. On Aug. Un the seeond volume
was issued under the title of "The
Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe; being the second and last part of
his life and of the strange, surprising
account of liis travels round three
parts of the globe. Written by himself. To which is added n map of the
world, in which is delineated tbe voyage of Robinson Crusoe."

The following remarkable contribution to the curiosities of figures consists of two series of numbers, of
whicb no description is necessary, as
they speak for themselves, Perhaps
there is no special profit In them, but

Millside Sports Offer to Put Up Heavy
Stakes on   Tug-of-War
Contest.
A couple of Millside men visited the*
office  of   the   Daily   News   about   the
witching hour of midnight, and were
very anxious  to find  out  whence  the
story of the tug-of-war, in that paper I
one  day   last   week    emanated.    The
story  purported to come   from   I'day
Ram. who criticized the sporting status  of the  Millside  white men.    Thej
midnight   visitors didn't   want to nay
in plain English just what  I'day Rami
was, but ht- was one any way. 1
They said thai on the day on whlchl
the scrap tool, place over the tug-of-;
war.   they   had   succeeded   in  pulling
their   opponents   over   twenty    feet,
when :he uliI doctor, as they call him, i
encroached too much on the game and
gave a white man a push, as the man i
in question objected to being pushed,
he returned the compliment, thereon
followed a free-for-all fight, in  which
some blood was shed and some tilings
were said.   The  Hindus claimed the
victory in spite of the fact that they
had been pulled twenty feet by   ���   ir
opponents, their rule being thai   the
last man must be pulled past the dividing line.    The  white men considered
i
that as they had pulley] their opponents so far and had held.them there
for twenty minutes, they were the
victors.
The white contestants were very
angry at being considered poor sports
and have challenged the Hindus to a
contest in the mill building, on cleats.
They have offered to pul up anything
from Sinn to $500 provided the Hindus
will cover it  with a similar amount,
On Saturday I'day Ram visited the
Xews office and stated that he had
been misunderstood, as he had no intention of criticizing the sporting a-
tus of his white friends at Millside.

THE SUPPLY OF LABOR.
To the Editor of the Daily News.
Sir,���The scarcity of labor in this
province seems to be a burning question with some people, and the statements they make in regard to local
labor conditions are very alarming. As
1 lately required to have some laborers and mechanics, I thought, if their
statements were true, 1 was up
against a hard proposition; but when
I was ready to stan work I got over
fifty personal applications for employment, whereas I required only ten.
I would like to know what these people want. Is it slaves ? I don't. I
will leave my address with you, Mr.
Editor, to give to any of these gentle-
mi ;. who are really anxii is to solve
this problem of theirs, and I will undertake to enlighten them free of
cost.
I  enclose  my card.
