Every one knows how effective and
handsome mahogany is when used for
good furniture, but few of us kuow
how Its value was lirst discovered.
In the latter part of the seventeenth
century a London physician had a
brother engaged in trade with the
West Indies who on one occasion
brought home several logs of mahogany as ballast. The doctor wa.s building
a house, and his brother suggested that
the logs would serve for ceiling beams.
Acting on the proposal, tbe doctor gave
orders to the workmen to make use of
the mahogany, but their tools were not
eiiual to the task of cutting the bard
wood, and tbe logs were put out of the
way in a corner in the garden.
Some time afterward the bead ear
penter tried to make a box from the
wood, but wa.s unsuccessful with ordi
nary tools. He told tbe doctor, who I
was interested in the baffling timber
and ordered heavier tools to be made
to work lt with, says Home Notes.
When this wns done and a box at last
made and polished, it was so handsome
that a bureau was made from another
of the despised logs, and this was declared by experts to tie so superior tn
other furniture milking woods tbat the
craze for mahogany set in, and furni
ture made from it became highly popular, tin. then Duchess of Buckingham

A   Sea   Serpent   1.1. n i 111. ,1.
Some forty years ago. when out with
a boating party for seagull shooting. I
espied a  monster  fish  basking on  thr'
surface of tbe wafer, with its bead well
up in the air.  Tlie creature allowed us
to get within thirty yards, when I sent,
two charges of shot into its head, with'
the  result   that   it   rolled   ovpr  on  its
back, and our boat soon came up to it.
It proved to be a large angel shark.   I.
thought  I   would   make  quite sure 11
was dead and sent two more charges
Into its upturned  belly.   I must have.
unfortunately, burst its uir bladder, foi
lt  began  slowly   to  sink.    Had   I   no!'
killed it at first, and bad it reared it-

One   Occasion   When   the   Proprietor
Wanted  !t  Stopped.
The Introduction of .sir Francis
Burnand to tlie staff of Punch led to
an unusual Incident. Tbe Bookbuyer
tells the story. Mr. Burnand hud given up bis profession oi* law and was
devoting himself to writing. It occurred to bim tbat a burlesque on the
sensational novel of t|���. day and printed after the manner of the Loudon
Journal might make a popular bit. He
proposed bis plan to the editor of'
Punch, who ai oa,.,. accepted the idea, j
The first Installment came out, illustrated by Gilbert, Du Maurier am!
Keene and reproduced in Journal fashion, it "took" at once and became the
talk of the town,
The day of the first issue the senior |
proprietor of Punch was ill in bed
The number reached him with the
Journal burlesque folded on the outside. At lirst be thought a .Journal
bad been sent him by mistake, bul
when he discovered thai the page
formed a p >rtion of Punch he did n .1
Stop to read it, but sprang out of bed
at once, dressed and hurried to the
"Stop Punch!" he cried, bursting Into
the room. "Slop Punch! Vou've go;
a page of the Journal in the form!"
'Vi took considerable explanation to
satisfy him thai some dreadful mis
take had not been made.
This was Mr. Burnand's first appearance ou the Punch staff. The next
night I'h like ray took bim to the weekly dinner and introduced bim:
"Gentlemen- tbe new boy."

ist, that the Legislature can at any
time increase both rental and royalty.
That is true as regards some, not all,
licenses; but does the Colonist forget
that what would be a fair and just
rate of rental and royalty on one
limit, would be a low rate on another,
and an exhorbitant rate on still another? For that reason the plan of
disposing of these limits by competition was adopted. This is a matter

THURSDAY, DEC. 1*7, 1906.
S iturday, Feb. 2, 1907, is to see the
election of the eleventh parliament or
legislature of British Columbia. Will
the Liberals win? Will the Government He sustained? These are the
questions on men's lips. How will !
the campaign of lhe Socialists affect
the Issue? What will the Labor party:
do? These are all Interesting questions���questions whieh will give rise
t i much debate, to many heated arguments, !
Hul behind them all stands the ques-!
tion of questions, what of the future j
of this "glorious Province"? That
millions of possible revenue have
been sacrificed���thrown away���by the
McBride governmenl, no truthful man
who has a fair knowledge of current
events will deny, and that these millions are and will lie sorely needed to
push the development of the Province and place it in that leading position In the Dominion for which Its
natural wealth and other advantages
li: It, all admit. Election day is.
therefore, a day big with fate for Uhe
Province. Bhould the C_(ovei"nment
win���and we may he sure that nothing
which money and the backing of pow-
1 rful corporations ear. do to bring
them victory, will be wanting���then

One of Ibe Mont Peculiar Weapon* ml
War Brer Invented.
Thu boomerang is an instrument used
both iu war aud in the chase by the
aborigines of Australia. It i.s usually
about two feet iu length, made of hard
wood bout into a curve resembling au
obtuse angle, tint on one side ami
rounded on the other, The method of
using this curious weapon is very peculiar. Tin' thrower lakes it in oae
hand, holding the bent side downward,
and hurls it forward as it to hit some
object twenty or twenty-five yards iu
advance, Instead of continuing to go
directly forward in accordance with
the Newtonian law it slowly ascends
iu the air, whirling round ami round,
describing a beautiful and geometrical
curved line till it reaches a considerable height, when it begins to retrograde, filially sweeping over tiie head
of tbe projector, striking the object for
which it was Intended, which is always in tlie rear.
An English officer has this to say of
the singular weapon: "The boomerang
is one of the most curious weapons oi
war ever invented, at least by a barbarous people, nor is it easy to comprehend by what law of projectiles it Is
made to take, the singular directions
that it frequently does. 1 have seen a
native throw- oue so as to make It go
forty or fifty yards horizontally and
not more than four feet from the
ground. It would then suddenly dart
into the air to the height of fifty or
sixty yards, describe a very considerable curve and finally fall at his feet
In all cases, no matter how thrown,
the boomerang keeps turning with
great rapidity, like as if mi a pivot.
