Seattle, Wash., July 18.���Renouncing the al
lurements of fashionable society in Seattle, and {
forsaking his life profession, that of the law, E. Hol-
ton James, nephew of Henry James, the eminent
novelist and scion of one of the oldest and richest
families of this country, has chosen to live the simple
life of a cowherd and dispenser of milk.
Mr. James, clad in yellow khaki overalls, a blue
flannel shirt and gray 'cap, with his pants tucked
away in a pair of loggers' boots, stomped his way
into the Butler hotel at noon today and ordered
lunch. He was greeted by a number of friends,
who recognized him in spite of his changed appearance. To these, Mr. James explained quickly and
frankly that he had quit the bar and city life for
good and would henceforth devote his time and
energies to producing the purest milk obtainable
and especially designed for weak babies and infants.
For more than a month past Mr. James, who is
j a member of one of the fashionable society sets of
j this city, has been employed on the Paulhamus dairy
| ranch, near Sumner, as a simple cowherd. His
} tasks have compelled him to arise at three o'clock j
! every morning. With Swiss and German milking
] hands he was ordered to the eow stables every morn-
| ing as the sun was sending his shafts of light through
| gray colored clouds on the eastern horizon. There
he learned to wash the udders of the cows and to be-

Council   Wants   Authority   to   Dispose
of Prooerty en  River Front.
A tew days ago there arrived al the
.ai; a registere i package and a
letter trom Mr. Kennedy, M. P.
Utter contained tlu- gratifying intelligence that the long desired deed to
the   water   frontage   was  coming   by
I  .. i    mail,   and   the   registered
package contained the title itself.
The council now proposes to submit to the ratepayers a bylaw con-
ferring authority to sell the lots, or
pari of them, giving present occupants the refusal, and disposing ot
lhe property by auction in case the
lessees should no: wish to purchase.
The argument advanced in favor of
the scheme is ihat the sum which
would lie realized for the lots, applied
to the extinction of the city's bonded
debt, would make a saving in annual debt charges many times larger
than the amount now received for
rentals of the lots, while the taxes
on the property (the lots being city
property are not now taxed) would ie
pretty well equal to the rentals.
The water lots were given Lo the
City away back in crown colony days,
hut no formal papers were made out.
and ihe city found itself wilh a title
in equity, but none in law. Mayor
Keary took the matter up some years
ago and on the advice of Mr. Man in,
ciiy solicitor, obtained in ihe first
place a deed from the provincial
government. Application was then
made to the Dominion authorities and,
the justice of the city's claim being
shown, the deed was issued. Tlie
n< gotiations have occupied a good deal
o,' time, and lhe mayor is to be congratulated on iheir successful conclusion.
The  proposal   is   to   sell  fifty  lots,
rserving, of course,  those which  the
city uses, and the street ends.

THURSDAY    JULY   19.   1906.
From  lime io lime  we see remarks
in oui' exchanges about  "spoils" and
"patronage"   which   appear   to   show
that the writers either do nol  understand just whal is meanl by'the spoils
system, or else are anxious,  for their
own purposes, to mislead their read-,
ers.    Wherever ihe  pari)   system .is
in vogue, governments give their pal- 1
renage to iheir political friends.    That
is  the  general   rule,  and   he  it   right
. .      i
oi-  wrong,  no party is in a position
to throw stones at is opponents about
the practice. Like all general rules,
it has its excetpions. Where work is
done by contract, party is not supposed to cut any figure. Where there
is a civil service system which governs both appointments and promotions, the party complexion of the
civil servants is not supposed to be
regarded. All this is apart entirely
from the spoils system. Under that
system, the incoming government discharges all the officials appointed by-
its predecessors and puts in its own
men. It makes as nearly as possible
a clean sweep.
There is a row on hand in Ontario
at present about this matter. The
Whitney government, is accused of introducing the spoils system; and the
Conservative papers deny the accusation with he;<tf. if not with vigor. A
recent case is that of a Mr. Bastedo
whose offence seemed to be that he
did his work too thoroughly. The
Globe denounces the action of the government in the case, and thereupon
the Mail and Empire calls the Globe
a "clumsy hypocrite." The News,
however, which has been rather favor-
Able than otherwise to the Whitney
government, has this to say:
"Mr. Whitney should not have allowed Mr. Bastedo to lie dismissed.
He does uot need to surrender to the
small politicians of his party, and it
should be his particular duty to protect the civil service. We do not
expect that he will appoint Liberals
to such vacancies as may occur in
the service while the office hunger
is so strong in the Conservative party.
But as the party appetite becomes
partially glutted we still hope that
he may undertake a reform of the
whole vicious patronage system. He
has a strong will, he enjoys the confidence of thousands of Liberals, he
is trusted and respected by the great
mass of the people. He can, if he
so wills, command the voles of as
many Liberals three years hence as
supported his candidates in the last
general election. He ran, if lie BO
wills, drive back inlo lhe Liberal
ranks the thousands of Liberals ani
Independents who swelled his majority ill the last conies-. Such acls
a.--, lbe dismissal of Mi-. Bastedo will
certainly contribute to ibis result.
Generally. Mr. Whitney has done well,
exceedingly well and even from the
low standpoint of party expediency
he cannot afford to forget thai every
year the independent vote in this
Province grows stronger, and Ihat it
will not permit faithful public servants to be sacrificed, and the civil
service to he generally bedevilled to
serve the convenience and interest of
any group of place-hunt ing and office-
filling politicians."
As Napoleon was one day passing In
review some of his troops he came in
front of an old and faithful officer,
who. perhaps from want of brilliancy
on tin- man's part, bad never been advanced beyond the grade of captain,
though  he seas  well  enough known  to
the emperor, 'i'he emperor was passing at a slow trol. As be came directly iu front of the old captain the officer
saluted nnd said loudly, hut without
auy apparent movement of the muscles of his face:
"Fifteen campaigns, private, captain!"
And the emperor, without turning
his head or slackening his pace, said:
"Colonel, brigadier, baron!"
Then be was gone. There had, indeed, been no time for a word more
than bad been passed, but th ise had
sufficed for the captain to communicate a long story anil a reproachful
complaint and for the emperor to set
matters right with a military and so-
dal promotion.

and opened an offlce in Boston, his fa-

his legal reputation. The young man's
first client was an Irishman, and the
ssase, though only some small matter of
a boundary line, was one that required
the examination of a number of deeds
and records. Mr. Hoar accordingly
told his client to come back in two
days for his opinion. The Irishman
left the office, evidently very reluctant
at the delay. Turning at the door, be
asked, "Couldn't ye give me tbe answer tomorrow, Misther Hoar?"

Thin   Irili.   Hold*  the Record  am   Bad
Scarcely a tribe of our American Indians Inn what have engraved their iv
ord of crime and infamy high up on
History's wall, yet above them all is the
Apai '-es'.
From 1540 to 1853 New Spain -md
Mexico carried on a -< called warfare
with these people. Tie Lpaches were
vastly outnumbered by the Mexican
soldiery, but whaf lie y lacked In numbers was more than made up in courage and craftiness. Tiie Apache ever
had a thorough contempt for the Mexican soldier, and iii later years, when
they were fighting with firearms ns
well as arrows, they would not waste
cartridges ou the Mexicans, hut would
kill them with arrows, spears and
stones, saving their cartridges for other
anil more worthy foes.
When this southwest region became
a pari of the United States tbe Apaches
were a serious problem with which we
had to contend. Our government vacillated between a simpering peace policy
and the other extreme, their extermination.
Their zone of wandering being Inter
sected by the Internationfl boundary
line further complicated mailers. They
would raid down into Mexico and then
rush back with lhe plunder to our side
of ibe line, o+il of reacli of tbe pursuing
soldiers. Next il would lie a raid on .
the Arizona Bide ami a flight into the
wild mountains of Sonora. The Mexican government attempted to assist
their miserable army by giving a scalp
bounty, and foi years they paid oul
Iheir gold coin for Apache scalps.
Scalp hunting became a recognized industry. The horror of this was that to
the Mexican official all scalps looked
alike, whether from the head of a bos-
tile or a friendly Indian. The price
was $100 for a man, $50 for a woman
nnd $25 for a child. It is small wonder
that the tribe sank deeper into savagery than ever when we stop to think
that the men knew there was a price
set on the scalps of their wives aud
children, and there was a horde of
human fiends, white in color, but more
savage than the savage himself, who
were hunting them as they would a
cougar of the mountains.���E. S. Curtis

Geese  From   shellllsh.
Everybody in the whole civilize!
world between the eleventh and tbe
seventeenth centuries believed that the
"barnacle goose" hatched from that
species of shellfish called the barnacle.
The story wns first told by Caiiibrensis
and was devoutly believed by all Christendom for more than half a thousand
years. A well known scientific writer,
reviewing the opinions of Caiiibrensis,
says: "According to our venerable authority, the barnacle goose is generated
from logs of wood allowed to decompose in tbe water. When decomposition has fairly begun, small bumps on
the log may be observed. Little by
little these increase in size, and finally
assume the form and shape of a mass
Of barnacles, which is well known as
a kind of shellfish, Soon after the
shell, or busk, bursts open and a full
grown goose may be seen in the water
clinging to the log only by Its bill. A
few slays longer it continues to draw
its nourishment from the log, then
breaks away in the form of a perfect
goose, exercising all the functions of
its kind."

more than about.0017 of n gram; hence
the value of such lenses to the weight
of a kilogram would be about $3,000,-
000. The cost of making this weight
of glass I.s 3 to (5 cents, and thus when
worked up Into the shape of a lens the
glass bas increased in value about 50,-

It is stated that a pianist in playing

has been estimated, involved two
movements of the finger and possibly
Again, tbe movements of the wrist,
elbows and arms can scarcely be less
than one movement for each note. Aa
twenty-four notes were played each
second and each involves three movements we would bave seventy-two voluntary movements per second.
Again, the place, the force, the time
and the duration of each of these movements were controlled. All these motor
reactions were conditioned upon a
knowledge of the position of each finger of each hand bi'fore it was moved,
while moving it, as well as of the au-
dltory s^ffect to force and pitch, al! of

lu the conduct of the police department In an English city we find a
striking comparison with our A mer-
lean notion of police work. In Manchester, as In London, the policeman
Is always the servant of tbe public
As in London, he carries neither club
nor revolver. His duties are very
nearly the same as those of a New
York officer. It is in his method of
doiiiK his work that fhe striking difference lies. He is always quiet, always neat, always respectful, even
deferential, In his treatment of the
public. Such overbearing manners as
we sometimes see In New York policemen would not be tolerated in Manchester���or in London, for that matter.���Success.
larize, a certain district in central
Pennsylvania proves this fact. It is
made up of a rural population with 100
Inhabitants to the ssjuare mile. 11 is a
region of fine farms, wild mountains
and woods, country residences and picnic groves. And in this valley ther'
has been as much typhoid fever as In
the city of Philadelphia.
Sad as this condition is, there seems
to be no remedy for it. The source-; of
-a city water supply are few and the
city government easily controls the
conditions affecting it. But what can
"lie done when tbe sources of supply
are numbered by tbe thousands? A
mint of money and an army of chemists would not be sufficient to give tbe
same care to the country supply that is
given lo that of the city.���New York

snowslides would fill a book and would
be a thrilling, tragic and ln some cases
a grewsome one.
Men have ridden hundreds of feet ou
the back of a snowslido aud bave escaped unhurt. Others have been caught
and buried so deep and In such uncertain spots that their bodies have not
been discovered until the melting of
tbe snow in the following spring.
Some have been caught as Ihey were
walking, but a few stops from the
boarding house to (he mine, or while
emptying a car on the mine dump. Not
Infrequently men have found themselves temporarily imprisoned by the
entrance of the mine being closed by
a slide while they were at work and
have had to dig their  way out.
A Chinese cook at one of the Idaho
mines stepped outside his kitchen door
for a moment and was caught aud
hurled with the slide 1,000 feet down
tbe hillside and his body was not re-
coveresl till the following spring.
Such incidents denote the extreme
su denness, ; o'.ver nnd velocity of the
slide. Little or no warning is given, a
roar, a cloud of snow obscuring the
sight of the real slide, and in a moment thousands of tons of snow.

Trees That Form Inland*.
In the course of great rivers, islands
are generally formed by the stranding
of trees, shrubs, plants and such things
broughl down by tbe current, lu tbe
Mackenzie river nf Canada the whole
process of island making in thi.-; way can
be easily observed. Trees borne down
from tlie banks by the undermining ac
tion of the current usually retain considerable mass nf earth and slum en
tangled in their roots. They, therefore,
readily sink, and by doing so form considerable shoals, which, time converts
Into regular vegetable islands. Then a
thicket of small willows covers tbe
newly formed land and their fibrous
rools serve to bind the whole firmly together. A peaty soil is formed by the
gradual decay of the vegetation. Including the trunks of tlie trees, and on this
many new varieties of plants spring
up. Sometimes the Island clears its
moorings and floats away down stream
nniil it Is again nrri'sted by an obstacle, or it may become in a sense waterlogged and subside close to tbe bottom.
In this .latter case it often gets covered
over with mud ami sand, which form
a new and more permanent hind surface above it.

"I've been trying to get a hat. Upstairs in the millmery department I
tried on hats until my arms ached
pinning them on, and the salesw unan

woman, witb a scared looking maid
carrying a big paper bag: This woman
sniffed around, turned hats upside
down and almost inside out and Anally
looked over the untrinuned shapes.
She picked out one. Drawing a chair
before the biggest mirror in the place,
she sat down and had the maid empty
the contents of that hag In her lap. It
held feathers, flowers and rihiions.
Then she began to pin on feathers here,
a flower there and to try the effect of a

The   Lobster's   Ilirtli   Nllme.
"Did you ever see the name a lobster is born with'.-" asked a Qsb dealer
the other day. "It is marked on his
body.   Si>':   Well, I'll show you one."
The dealer took a live lobster out of
a heap on the marble slab.
"Its name is Joe," tlie dealer said
after be bad inspected one of iis legs.
"Now, can you find it'.'"
Tbe customer took tbe lobster gingerly by 'die hack of the neck, where
It could not reach llis hand with its nippers. Turning it on its back so that
the brown legs at its side flopped backward, a smooth streak half an inch
long and nearly as wide was seen on
the inside of the thigh. In this streak,
like a mosaic, were short lines, as
though some one had printed on it with
indelible brown ink in backhand the
characters J-O-E.
"Some lobsters are named Jim," the
dealer said, "some Jack, others John,
and I once clearly made out the name
A   Word   With   a Strange   History.
"Treacle," or molasses, is a word
with an interesting history. Tbe earliest "treacle" was an antidote against
the viper's bite and probably was made
of viper's flesh itself. It Is a word
with a strange history, descending
from the Greek "ther," a wild lieast.
whence came the adjective "theriakos,''
pertaining to a wdld beast, which was
eventually specialized to mean serving as an antidote agaiust a wild
beast's bite. In English "treacle" then
came to mean anything soothing or
comforting. Chaucer even speaks of
Christ as "treacle of all harm." Aud,
as so many soothing remedies were
sirups, "treacle" at length meant simply sirups of various kinds.
The Temple of Diana.
The most noted lire which involved
the burning of a single edifice was the
destruction of the great temple of Diana at Ephesus in B. C. 350 ou the
night Alexander the Great was boru.
The fire was kindled by Herostratus,
who when apprehended confessed that
his only desire was to transmit his
name to farther ages. He was put to
death with exquisite and prolonged
tortures, and the Epheslan senate commanded that on pain of death his name
should never be pronounced, hoping
thus to disappoint his expectation.
To  Keep  Awake  In  Olinrch.
A minister once told me a good way
to keep awake In church When inclined
to be drowsy. The way was this: Lift
one foot a little way from the floor aud
hokl it there. It is Impossible to go to
sleep when your foot is poised In the
air. This remedy, though simple, is
very effectual and never fails to keep
a person awake.���National Magazine.

latchkey from his pocket and managed
to tootle merrily enough on it till suddenly, as he approached the touch line
a woman's shrill voice was heard, exclaiming:
"Fred, come here at once! Where did
you get that latchkey?"
As he listened to the guffaw which

A   Stag  and  a  Ladder.
Storisjs of deer with rain barrels or
water palls on their heads are common
sjnough among Maine and Adirondack
guides, but it is left for Europe to come
to the fore with a variant. Some huntsmen near Innsbruck came upon a stag
with a ladsler on its antlers. In spite
of this handicap it made off at great
speed on seeing the man, leaping
hedges and dashing through the undergrowth as if quite unimpeded. Its mad
career was stopped, however, wheu the
ends of the ladder caught between two
trees. Its struggles were so frantic nt
the approach of the huntsman's dog
that lt broke off part of Its antlers and,
thus freed, made good its escape. Tbe
ladder proved to belong to a farmer
who had left it standing against one of
his haystacks. While stealing the hay
the stag had evidently upset the ladder, whicb had thus become fixed <
its horns.
Training   a  Dour.
A dog understands "yes," and is
equally competent to grasp the "no."
Outside of that he is all dog and follows his dog ways. He Indulges ln no
mental refinement and will not comprehend many of your changes of mood
or mind. Whatever you undertake to
teach make it plain, simple and unchangeable. It Is a pity that he must
be taught not to Jump up on people
and compliment them with his caresses. He means well, but must be
sliseipllned sternly Into knowing that
it is not good form under any circumstances. The discipline need not be accompanied by any severity. A light
touch with a whip, If applied invariably, wdll socm settle the matter. Some
kennel men adopt the plan of stepping
llgbtly on the hind foot, and it is perhaps the clearest way of conveying the
Idea.���Outing Magazine.
Art Above NatureT
Art Is one of tlie greatest phenomena
of our world. It is one of tbe most
serious of things. Nature has no art.
Nature is grotesque aud weird, but
art is ours; it is human. Art means
anything. A system of philosophy is
as much art as beauty In sculpture and
rhythm aud cadence in poetry. There
ls the art of living, the art of meeting
people. No bird gives real music. The
finest nightingale sends out only weird
tones, hut it isn't music. Tbe ouly musical sound in nature is the soujtt.of
water dripping from a rock. Art is
bypeniatui'e, antinature. It is neither
Imitation nor rivalry, but something
we give to nature.���Dr. Emil Reich.

Portland, Ore., July IS.���Another
chapter has developed in the sensational Creffield-Mitchell case, and
now Mrs. Burgess E. Starr bids for
the leading role. It has just come to
light that Mrs. Starr, who announced
herself as pleased at the death <;f
George Mitchell, is the recipient of
a letter from an unknown party or
! parties in which her life is threatened. Immediately upon receipt of the
I letter Mrs. Starr turned the letter
] over to Attorney Manning for action, hut the district attorney took
no action and the letter will be given
to Chief of Police Gritzmaeher today.
The letter was short, but decidedly to the point. It was addressed
"Mrs. B. E. Starr" and signed indistinctly "G. C. G.��� Its general tenor
was that the author, with others, was
determined, in view of Mrs. Starr's
declared pleasure at the death of
Mitchell, to kill ber. When asked
concerning the phrasing of the letter Mr. Starr was very hazy. He
only remembered that it was couched in no uncertain terms and said
"I, or If I can't, some member will
gel  you."
The husband of the woman addressed was surprised and entirely
in the dark as to who the author
mighl be or what his motives were.
The postmark was Station B which
ia iocated in Albina, but other than
thai there was absolutely no clew
on the envelope or letter sheet by
which the writer might be detected.
The handwriting was smooth and
legible and an attempt had heen
made to make the signature as indistinct as possible.
"I gave the letter to Fred Mitchell," said Starr, when reqested to deliver the threatening letter for publication. "I had intended long before
to give it into the bands of the
police, and shall do so as soon as I
can see Fred. The letter was in
good language and, although it uses
no improper language and is not at
all illiterate, it leaves no doubt of
the author's meaning . I cannot understand why it was sent or who
could   have   written  it."
Mrs. Starr appears deeply affected
by the receipt of the theratening
epistle. She trembled when speaking of it, and ier whole manner was
that of a person in deadly fear of
her life. The late events seem also
to have completely wrecked her
I nervous   system.

The Vancouver World yesterday had
the following additional particulars:
James Chisholm the 15-year-old son
of Caretaker Chisholm of lhe post-
office, has been found and lost again
ui.der circumstances which are, to say
tin least, extraordinary.
Acting on instructions from the police here, the ship Pass of Leny lying
In Royal Roads, was searched yester-
day and the boy was found sm board.
This was learned here first in a telegram received by Chief of Police
Chisholm yesterday at noon. He at
ii e notified the father, who had just
' .��� to catch the Princess Victoria
and   go  over   to   the  capital,   ln   the
��� .oning Mr. Chisholm telegraphed to
his wife here, and today Mrs. Chisholm received a letter giving some
li appears that two men wont to
i hi i'ass of Leny and apprehen Is l
Uie hoy. They rowed back, but according to their story, jusl as the
touched the pier at Esquimau
thi boy sprang out and disappeared
and has never heen seen since.    The
hei adds that the whole of the
Victoria poiiee force has been on the
hunt but without success. Two boats
are known to have left for Port
Tqwnsend just after the boy got away
at Esquimau, and it is feared that
those wdio were responsible for his
: 'si disappearance have succeeded in
spiriting him aboard one or other of
these boats and that lie is now on the
.American side.
The boy is of such an age (he will
not Se lu until next November.) that
anyone inducing him to leave home is
undoubtedly guilty of abduction. That
the boy consented makes not a whit
of difference. The shipping act makes
no special mention of the age of i p-
prentices, but this is clearly covered
in the common law of England. No
poi son under age can be taken without the consent of parents or guardians.
To put it mildly, the escape of lhe
boy at Esquimalt looks decidedly
fishy.    That   a   14-year-old   hoy   could
��� -cape from two men is on the face
of it absurd; that is, if they really
tried to stop him.

What   It   Did   When   Wectinffhouse
Finally  Won  a  Trial.
Persons who should have known bi ���:-
ter thought Westinghouse visionary
when they were told that be proposed ,
to stop a train by air. Nobody seemed inclined to let him try his plan ou
a real train, but they slid not object to
his working a model of it In a shop
wdiere he couldn't do auy barm or involve anybody else in expense, lit:
knew bis scheme would work, but be
could not make any one else believe it.
So he continued to sell his invention
for replacing derailed cars on the
tracks and to talk ahout his brake tt
any railroad man who was willing ta
"Well, have you ever stopped a trail!
with this air thing of yours?" they
would ask.
No, he couldn't  say that he had tlollt
so.   Nobody would let him try it even
on a train of dump cars.
One day be arrived in Pittsburg, sidling his other Invention and talking
about his brake notion to a man connected with a railroad out there.
"That's a great idea of yours," said
the man.   "We will try It on our line."
So the officials of lhis railroad permitted Westinghouse to put his new
"kickshaw" on one of their trains.
But he had to agree to Indemnify the
load for any damage that might be
caused to the train as the result of the
trials. The (rain was equipped. On
tbe designated day the confident inventor and a group of skeptical railway mim boarded the train on which
the first air brakes were fixed, Off
went the train on its trial trip. The engineer put on full speed, and just as
be bad rounded a curve be saw ahead,
at a grade crossing aatl in the misldle
of tbe track, a loaded wagon, a man
and n boy and a balky horse. The eu- 1
gineer moved his little lever, and the
first trajp that was ever stopped by
air pulled up at a standstill several
feet, short sif the obstruction.
Thus, on Its first trial, the Westinghouse ii ir brake saved life and prevent-
sti damage Isi property. Thenceforward
talking was unnecessary; all that had
to be done was to make brakes. The
Inventor thought of that clause secur
lng compensation to the railroad fori
any damage be might do to tbe train,
and he laughed. His fortune dated
from that day. lie was then only
twenty-two.���Arthur Warren in Success.
