"In India." writes Sidney Low, "religion, with what seems a malign ingenuity, lias occupied itself in heaping
complications round the two essential
functions of eating and marrying. The
Hindoo cannot take his food without
elaborate precautions against pollution,
and the hlgbi r his caste is the more
burdensome these rules are. There are
some inferior castes in lhe south who
are nol supposed to approach even
within speaking distance of the elect
A regular table lias been drawn up of
what may be called the degrees of pollution, so that, while some of these low
persons can pollute a man of a higher
caste only by actually lunching bim,
it is held that blacksmiths, masons,
carpenters and leather workers can
pollute at a distance of twenty-four
feet, toddy drawers at thirty-six feet
and cultivators at forty-eight feet,
wdiile the pariahs, who eat beef, have
a pollution range of no less than twenty-one yards and twelve inches.
"Tbe more sacred a Hindoo Is the
more he is worris-sl by his code of table
etiquette. Tbe very high caste Brahman ought to strip off all his clothes
and, if possible, sit on the floor when

Why   Timothy  S.i-ukn   Is   So   Culled.
The forage grass known to the farmers of tbe United States as timothy is
so called because first introduced and
extensively cultivated in this country
by one Timothy Hanson, a farmer of
Maryland. This species of grass is
well known in Englansl and all over
western continental Europe, where it
ls grown extensively by most farmers
between the Mediterranean and the
North seas. The botanical name of this
grass is Phleuin pratense. Timothy is
known in the British isles as cat's tail
grass and in several of our eastern
states as herd, or herd's, grass. It was
grown in large quantities in Maryland
and Pennsylvania long before a spear
of it had ever been seen in England,

named country being Imported froi::

Helmlngham Hall is the sent of Lord
Tollemache in Suffolk, about eight
miles from Ipswich. The existing
drawbridge has been raised every night
for lhe past 300 years, and the present
owner does not allow the custom to
become obsolete. Another fine example of a moated bouse ls Leeds castle,
about three miles southeast of Maidstone, in Kent, which, surrounded by
Its moat, forms almost a lake cross1 d
by a single bridge. There ls a flue moat
at Wells, in Somersetshire, where the
episcopal palace, an ancient castellated
mansion, i.s surrounded with walls inclosing nearly seven acres of ground.
This moat is supplied with water from

��� .  .,  .'.V$.,.M.
TUESDAY,  JULY   17.  1906.
The Kamloops Standard says; "J.
w.   Hawthornthwaite,  M.   P.  P.,  the
Socialist leader in this province, is on
a campaign through the various constituencies. From tlie criticisms
which are appearing in the Liberal
papers it would appear thai his greatest sin lies in not support ing J. A.
Macdonald in the local house."
The complaints made against Mr.
Hawthornthwaite are that he is an
advocate of revolution; that he talks
about pulling dowu the Canadian ensign and hoisting the red flag in its
place; that he has supported legislation which he knew to be against the
public interest, with the avowed purpose of thereby creating the conditions which lead to revolution; and
that he has voted fur certain measures
in return for the government support
of his pet bills. We do not now
say that these charges are true or
untrue; simply that these are the accusations current in the Liberal press.
That being so, the "tu quoque" paragraph quoted above is simply babyish.
The real trouble with the Standard
and like-minded papers is that they
cannot approve, and dare not condemn, the course and the utterances
of Mr. Hawthornthwaite. That gentleman knows that the government is
dependent upon him for its existence,
and he accordingly feels quite free
to show his contempt for the government. The organs have to swallow
all that, and very naturally the dose
does not improve their temper; but
they should endeavor to carry it off
with a little more dignity.
The Toronto Globe, talking the other day ahout the character of men
and cities, said of some fact to which
it had referred; "It reminds us all
that a good character is as important for a city as for a man. A city
which has the reputation of containing a law-abiding population, of being
���supplied with an abundance of good
Water, of being well paved, well lighted, and well policed, of having efficient and clean government, of having
first class educational institutions,
abundant parks and open squares, and
excellent transportation facilities, has
assets that can scarcely be computed
in figures. The citizens of such a
city should guard these blessings with
a jealous care, and ..os can only be
done hy every man maintaining an
intelligent and active interest in
everything that appertains to the common good."
This, so f;ir as it goes, as a most
excellent description of New Westminster. In not one of the points
mentioned is this city a whit behind
the average city of its size, and in
most of them it is far ahead. Do
its citizens fully appreciate tha' fact"
We invite each of our readers to take
the points one by one, consider them,
^contrast the standing of New Westminster in each instance with that of
surrounding cities; and if your local
patriotism is not gratified, he sure
that yi ; need a course of instruction
in the facts.
The local McBride organ had a
couple of characteristic articles last
evening, one of which was a wail for
sympathy because Mr. Oliver had
sued its editor for libel, and the other
a very farfetched attack on the Ottawa government. Referring to the
rumor that negotiations are in progress to stop pelagic sealing, it says
that the matter is still under consideration at Ottawa, and the Laurier
government is willing to consent to
the arrangement. On its second page
it reprints in full the report upon
which its article is founded, and that
report distinctly says that so far the
negotiations  have 'been   between  the
"The Guardian," a new Monday
morning paper, has made its appearance in Vancouver. Ii announces itself "the only morning paper in British Columbia today," which is a .slight
and no doubt an unintentional error.
It is to be Independent, and proves
the sincerity of that profession by including in one common condemnation
both government and opposition in
both Province and Dominion. It also
pays iis respects to the lieutenant-
governor and to K. Kelly of Vancouver, a,nun il calls "Boss Kelly." It
is a tout-;>;me. seven-coitituti paper,
and  is  very  neatly  printed.

In the disintegration of radium by
the giving off of helium the amount of
energy set free is 1,000,000,000 great
calories for oue gram of radium. Now
to reconstruct the dissipated elenieuts
would require ns much energy as was
lost in their dissipation, and this explains the hopelessness of their synthesis, as no such amount of energy cau
be employed. Iiow were these elements first constructed? That i.s a

had no official intimation of the intention of tlie governor-general to
open th.e provincial exhibition in this

The Victoria Times has an article
in which it sets forth in glowing
terms the beauties and advantages of
the capital city. That, is all right,
and highly commendable; but there
is one sentence which needs explanation. Speaking of the reasons which
induce people to settle in Victoria, it
says "when they want to die it is
only a short distance to���some other
place." This is indefinite; and as the
paper at once goes on to extol the
cool climate they will enjoy in Victoria, while they are alive, the in-
detiniteness appears somewhat suggestive. '      i ���*

mounted polled for the presenl season include the opening of a route

iti field inlet from the Great Slave
This is a route very few white men
have as yet traversed. The opening
of a road, however, and the building
of a lew huts thereon will no doubt
be followed by exploration to ascertain what it contains. There is min-
eral wealth still farther north, and
it is hard to say what metals these
regions may not possess. The supply

One of tlie.  Mont Cnrtona Sirowths of
the   \\ i-i   Indies.
The cup'y. or, as ll Is sarcastically
called in the English possesions, "the
attorney," is one of the mosl curious,
as it is oue of the mosl picturesque
denizens of the virgin forests ol th"
West Indian islands. It belongs to the
parasitical family of trees or plant-:
but. terrible to relate, it Invariably,
with the basest Ingratitude, destroys
all life in the unfortunate trsje thai
cherishes lt in its early growth. Th"
seeds are borne ou the wings of the
wind aud deposited on the branches
of other trees, when they hurst into
roots, whicli are dropped toward ihe
ground all around the "nurse" tree.
In time these roots reach the ground
and strike into the soil.
From this moment the runts grow
stronger and stronger until they resemble a lot of rniic ladders thrown over
the tree, Next the parasite sends down
a great curd, which twines around the
trunk of the Bupp irtlng tree, at lirst as
though in loving embrace, but It grows
tighter and tighter, eventually strati
gling its benefael >r oul of existence.
The nurse tree thus killed rots to decay, and from the Immense Qbrous
roots of the cjestroyer now springs a
great, trunk, which vises high Into the
air. When a cupey Is full grown it
presents a magniflcenl spectacle, for
the cordlike rool rises often to fifty or
sixty feel and supports Ln midair the
vast tree Itself.
Hie Old Time S ����������� of Torture In Legal
The constitution of the Units*! States
and the constitutions of the various
states in prohibiting cruel and unusual
punishments were not lighting an absurdity. The use of torture iu legal
processes was not, when these instruments were framed, so -emote as it Is
When Sir Thorn: 9 Dole came as high
marshal to Virginia he crushed a conspiracy by killing the ringleaders by
torture. One had a bodkin thrust
through his tongue and was chained
to a tree nntd be died. Others were
broken on the wheel. It is quaintly
stated that Sir Thomas was "u man
of good conscience and knowledge in
divinity."   Dole's date was 1611.
The next notable instance of the use
of torture was in 1692, in the Salem
witchcraft excitement, when Giles
Cory wa.s pressed to death���the "peine
dure et forte," the most horrible of
deaf. is.
Executions were in public throughout the east until comparatively recent
times. When Quelch, the pirate, and
six others were banned In Boston, Sew-
all wrote In his diary, "Win n the scaffold was let to sink there was such a
screech of the women thai my wife
heard it, sitting in our entry next to
the orchard," though the gallows was
a mile away and the wind unfavorable.
The use of tenure to wring the truth
fr m witnesses is said to have I 'i rec
ignized as legal in Austria until well
within the century.
Two Dramatic untl Contrasting Episodes   In   Her   Life.
Thistelton-Dyer, iu his "Royally In
All Ages," describes two dramatic
and tragically contrasted episodes in
the life of Marie Antoinette, the lovely
and ill fated queen of France. Once,
In the days of her greatest popularity,
when she went to the opera of "Iphi-
genia," when Achilles came to the line
"Let us sing and celebrate the queen,"
he turned toward the radiant young
sovereign and sang two additional impromptu lines of charming compliment.
This graceful and unexpected homage
so delighted the audience that "all was
shouting and clapping of hands, and���
what never happened at the opera before���the chorus was encored, and
there were eries of 'Long live the,
queen!" at which expression of feeling
her majesty was so affected thnt she
shed tears."
On the next occasion, wbeu Marie
Antoinette's sun of popular favor had
set and she was Hearing the tragic'
close of ber life, one of the actresses ln
"Unforeseen Events" bowed to her as
she sung tbe words "Ah, how I love
my mistress!" In a moment all was In
uproar, and the theater was full of
hoarse, angry cries of "No mistress!
No master! Liberty!" and "No master!
No queen'." and it was some minutes
before the tumult quieted down and it
was possible to proceed with the play.

liquids used the stomach is not only
overfilled and unnecessarily burdened,
but the gastric secretions are so weakened by dilution that tbey can act but
slowly upon the food mass. Here
again we have the food remaining In
the stomach for too long u period, and
there i.s likely to be produced all of the
symptoms and signs of an intoxication
due to the absorption Into the system
of the products of decomposed  foods.
Soup eaten by itself or with a light

-What to Eat.
They   Keep   Their   Kggs   In   Natural
Pockets   In   Their   Moulin..
In the sea of Galilee, or Lake Tiberias, as it is also called, there is a
Btrange fish named the Chromis simo-
nis, which is more careful of its young
than fish generally are. The male
takes the eggs in his mouth aud keeps
them iu his natural side pockets, where
they are regularly hatched aud remain
until able to shift for themselves. By
this ingenious arrangement the brood
is comparatively guarded against its
natural enemies. It is easily fed, too,
but it is a puzzle how the little ones
escape being eaten alive. Awhile ago,
says a traveler writing to a religious
contemporary, I found In my net
number of these flsh without eyes.
Others of the species, when I lift
them  up,  dropped a number of lit
fishes out of their mouths, which sw;
away hastily.    The natives explaim
the  phenomenon.    Tbe blind chrom
is   the  victim  of sea  hawks.     When
these birds have eaten their fill tbey
begiu  to  look out for tidbits.    After
catching a fish tbey hit  Its forehead
with  their sharp  beak,  knocking  out
tbe middle part, In which their eyes are
set.    The  bony structure is  dropped
luto the water, but the eyes are eaten
by    the     birds    with     great    relish.
Strangely   enough,   the   fish  generally
survive   this   rough   treatment     The
wound heals up quickly iu water, and
they continue to ply tho lake for food
as  if nothing bad happened.���London

Elephants Delight In Dre.s nnd Gorgeous  Trappings.
Elephants are passionately foud of
finery and delight to see themselves

An amusing instance of elephantine
pride is narrated: The elephant which

up to that time occupied only a subordinate place.
''The animal, delighted with its finery,
showed its glee by so miiuy little
squeaks and kicks of pleasure Unit general attention was attracted to it.
Not long after another state procession was formed, and the previous

Berger, the California amateur heavyweight, gave Philadelphia Jack
O'Brien the hardest six-round battle
of his career tonight. Notwithstanding that O'Brien frequently sent his
right and left to the neck and chin,
Eerger came back and forced the fighting in every round.
O'Brien had all the advantage in
the opening round. His footwork
seamed to dazzle Berger, hut as the
fight progressed the Californian immediately improved.
In the second round Berger opened
up   a   deep   gash   over  >.�� tirien's  eye
! and    the   Philadelphian    had    Berger
j bleeding  from  the   nose.    Both   men
' were covered with blood as they went
to iheir corners.
The third round was one of the
fastest by heavyweights ever witnessed  in this city.    O'Brien was forced
' to use all his cunning to avoid Berg-
er's  rushes,  and   later  again  opened
iil> O'Brien's damaged eye with a
vicious right. Just at the close of
the second round O'Brien's short-arm
jolt to Berger's jaw made the hitter's
knees knock together.
The fourth round  was a repetition
of  the  third.    Berger had  the Philadelphian  worried  in  the  two  closing
rounds.    When O'Brien led, he would
| invariably jump in the air and swing
his left around Berger's neck.   When
the fight ended  both men  were covered  with  blood;  and    the    referee's
shirt was crimson from his efforts to
separate the contestants.   When they
'rushed to a clinch it was several sec-
ends  before the  referee could  make
; them break clean.
The men  entered the ring in  perfect condition, and as they agreed to
fight   at   catch  weights, ne  announce-
j ment  was  made  of   their   respective
Berger's manager said the Californian weighed about 200 pounds, while
O'Brien weighed close to 175. No decision is allowed in the bouts in this
city, but it seemed to he the consensus
of opinion that O'Brien had a slight
ad vani age.
Berger, how ver, surprised the
sports by his cleverness and also his
gameness. He always came back
after the Philadelphian, no matter
how often O'Brien sent his left to
Berger's jaw.

Owing io the absence of Mayor
Keary, Aid. Shiles took the chair at
last night's meeting of the city conn,
cii. The meeting was a very short
one. lasting little over half an hour,
during which only routine business
was transacted. Aid. Howay inquired
of the chairman of the hoard of health
whether the milk tester that had been
purchased some time ago hy the city-
had been used yet. Aid. Garratt replied that owing to some mistake in
the shipping of the paraphernalia
from Seattle only a part of the machinery had arrived when ordered, hut
that the tester was now complete and
would he in use very shortly.
Aid. Howay reported for the special
committee appointed at the last, meeting of the council to look into the
alleged nuisance created by the dumping of refuse on a vacant lot on Mclnnes street. He said they had found
the dumping ground to be in a very
filthy condition and a menace to tne
health of the neighborhood. He
thought steps should he taken to put
a stop to the practice of dumping
refuse there, and he moved a resolution to the effect that the city scavenger he instructed to cease dumping
refuse on that lot, and that the services of the police be secured if necessary to prevent merchants and others from using tlie place as a depository for their store sweepings. The
report was adopted without discussion.
The question of providing a suitable dumping ground then came
up. the chairman being under the impression that there was one on Lulu
island, but he was informed by Aid.
Adams that it had not^.b.een used by
the scavenger for several years. No
action was taken towards providing
another dumping ground, Aid. Adams
stating that the' scavenger carried all
refuse to his own place at Burnahy
at present, antl that he had been filling up the hole on the vacant lot on
Mclnnes street on instructions from
the owner.
Only four communications were received, and these were quickly dealt
wiih. W. D. Lighthall, honorary secretary and treasurer of the Union of
the Canadian Municipalities, wrote
saying that arrangements had now
been completed for the holding of the
sixth annual convention at Halifax
this year, on August It. 15 and 1(1.
An invitation was extended to the
mayor, council and chief officers to
attend the convention. The invitation
was accepted, antl the communication
referred to the finance committee,
with power to act.
A. F. Hunt, captain of H. M. S.
Shearwater, now stationed at Esquimau, wrote thanking the mayor for
the cordial invitation extended to officers and men for exhibition week,
and said that he hoped to anchor off
the city during the first week in October as in past years. The communication was received and filed.
Sister M. Damian, superior of the
Providence orphanage, wrote applying
for a refund of the taxes paid for the
Providence orphanage and requesting
