Childhood   Incident   of   the   Author
"The Bay of Biscay,"
An Interesting anecdote of the youth
of John Davy, who composed the famous song "The Hay of Biscay," shown
how decided and precocious was this
musician's aptitude for the art ho ultimately practiced with artistic if not
financial success, .lohn Davy w:w liorr
near Exeter In 1703. At the age of sit
he evinced a passion for mUBlc, whlel
he sought every means of gratifying,
ne was iu want of a musical instru
ment and determined to provide bim
self with one of however rough 0 na
ture. So from a neighboring smithy
he purloined twenty to thirty horse
shoes. From these he selected as many
us formed a complete octave and. having suspended them In an upper room.
amused   himself   by   Imitating   upon
them   the chimes  of the neighboring! Will leave New Wottmtnater for Chill
church of Credlton.
Hy these and other means he obtained a knowledge of music wb eh Rome
thirty years later enabled him to produce many dramatic pieces nnd ueli
sonss as "dust Like Love," "The Death
of the Smuggler" and "The Ray of
Biscay," only the last of which has remained popular.
After twenty year-' work   u Londoi
Davy died In St. Martin's I ine In 18
He was buried In st. Martin's church,

KNOCKING   THE   TOWN.
PRESIDENT   TAFT.
"i'lie Interests of Canada are so
closi ly bound up with h. r soutnern
neighbor that the Inauguration of a
new president is a matter for considerable attention thla side of the forty-
ninth parallel, even if the ceremonials
yesterdaj ai Washington will noi
mark the era "f ..ny momentous
change in the policy of the United
States. Though of a very different
temperament the new and past presidents in- ln union as much as two
men can be In political interests, and
pul lie   i If airs.
The professional training of Tafl
has strongly inbued bim with the
necessltj for legal methods In the
progress oi hi.- objects, while Roosevelt was io quick In decision and action thai  he often  became Impatient
The mental capacity of some of the
residents of Revelstoke can be judged
by an effort recently put forth in that
city to suppress tlio sale of picture
postal cards depicting simw scenes
and winter sports, The ridiculous
argument  advanced is that 'he pict-
1 ines would hav.
a tendency to "knock
so   keep   prospective
the   town''   and
settlers   away.
If there is one class of people which
should be frightened away from Revelstoke���or any other city for that mater���it is thai which will be affected
v a picture depicting boys and girls
Bkating or tobaggoning, People who
are afraid of snow have no license to
live In Canada, inn we venture the
opinion that noi one in ten thousand
would confess to a prejudice against
the "beautiful."

TELEPHONE CONTROL.
Discussions in both the Federal am
Provincial house, have this week tak-
u place on the public ownership of
telephones,    The  debate  which    foi-
'������vl   Mr.   Lennox's motion    in   the
House of Commons showed the growing  sympathy   with  government  control of what has become as necessary
an  adjunct   to business  as  the   telegraph,  whii.-  that   in   the   legislative
assembly proved the feeling that a
is not well  with the existing system.
and   the day  may   come  sooner  than
many think when the provincial government   will follow   the   example  of
���heir contemporaries on the prairies,
and  add   this  to the  utilities'  adniin-
���-tered  by th,   province.
The motion in the House of Commons had be.n worded not to offend
'he oppon.-nts of public ownership,
and simply expressed the opinion that
eople in th. ,ast were paying more
tor their telephone service than the
esldenta of the prairie provinces, in
w of which it became the duty of
the government to Initiate Buch
measures as would afford relief. Naturally the companies obtained their
"ha:.,;.ions, much l.eing made of th
I _ilmt- of the Independi in corporation
iu the United aSiai.-s to pay their waj
in competition. We take issu.- with
one of their defenders. Mr. A. K. Mc-
l_.au, that the w< stern provinces have
gone into the business for political
reasons, whether under Conservative
or Liberal mlnisterlea In office in the
North-West. The mow has had the
cordial support of all sections of the
community.
We are glad the government took
the line that the telephone companies
must be under control of the railway
commission, until ,-uch lime ns the
other provinces follow the suit of the
wild, wooll, west," not so wild but
ihut It can give the last pointers on
control (if public utilities, as in other
matters. *���
While lie- discussion in the provincial house an.... on an amendment to
th.- Vancouver charter, it produced
one of Hn principal debates of the
session, and served ns a siraw to
show the way iu which the wind is
hlowlug towards simillar action in
ti is province, it la true a better service has been given in the past few
months than was' formerly the ease,

Everyone knows now hard it is ta do it sometimes, but by buying
what  you   require  at  the   lowest  possible rates you can do it.
I will help you in a material wa/ if you place your fire and other
insurance with me as I can give you t ic lowest rates in the city.
Whether it Is your stock, your buildings, your home, your furniture or
your life that you wish to insure, I will guarantee to place it for you at a
lower premium than others charge.
I write all kinds of insurance in and place it in Canadian companies
only, so that the cost is not only less but your money is helping to (wild
up home institutions instead of going to swell the wealth o' foreign corporations.
All I ask is that you give me the chance to quote you a rate and I am
satisfied  you  will   be  convinced.

DECAPITATION.

rialf �� dozen physicians were talking
���of death. It isn't a subjict ni.ually
-chosen l.j pbyslcians for discussion, but
these were discussing It. However, it
was net altogether physical death.
_tiey were including the hereafter.
'"Well,'' said one, "I don't know
whether there is tu be a hereafter or
net, and it doesn't trouble me very
mndi because I'll take chances on It lf
I can make tbe life I live before It the
kind or life 11 man ought to live. But
there is one thing about It tbat makes
ne hope there will be another Hfe, and
that is (he opportunity I shall bave of
asking some of the people who have
bad tbelr beads cut oCf lf there was any
sensation for a few minutes succeeding
decapitation. I believe now that there
Is, and thai life remains long enough
for the decapitated person to realize
that be has lost hla bead, or, rather,
that be has lost his body, because the
head ls th'e center of thought, and, of
course, II is the body that ls lost, uot
Ihe head At least that Ib the way a
man with his head off would be bound
to think of It. I fancy there ls no pain,
because that Mould require some time
and lf life exists at all after decapitation Jt would not lie long enough to
realize the sensation of pain. It must
be a very iiucer sort of feeling, and, as
I say. I hope there Is a life hereafter
so 1 may have a chance to find out s
few facts not otherwise obtainable."-

Victoria, March 4.���A terrible disaster occui-ed ou the Can:on river involving the loss of considerably over
a thousand lives following the overturning of a kerosene lamp on a flower boat while the steamfler Aki Mura
which reached port last night, was at
Hongkong, according to advices
brought by the liner.
A strong wind was blowing while a
large fleet of flower boats was massed
opposite  a  Chinese  pleasure    resort.
Suddenly   there   was   shrieks,   and   a
Chinese girl sprang into the river with
flaming clothing,   and   the   mat     roof
flared  up.    The   boat  burned  to  the
water's edge, the  flames reaching to
other boats.   Before the hig fleet could
break loose ii was evident the flotilla
I was doomed.    Those boats which did
1 cul   their moorings were forced back
into the fire by the strong tide,
Over a thousand people jumped into
I the river, and but three hundred were
j saved by sampans and launches which
found it difficult getting near the con-
flagration owing to the intense heat.
Before the Aki Mura sailed over 500
corpses, mostly charred and disfigured, were recovered hy Chinese seamen
under Admiral Li Chun, who took
charge of the rescue work. Several
hundred bodies remained to be discovered, the authorities paying one dollar   for  each  corpse  brought   in.

P.ats are remarkably Independent ol
the sense of sight A naturalist describes some experiments demonstrating this fact. Covering the eyes of a
bat with wax. he released the Creature
in -,i room, it first ef all made its way
to the door, but Instead of striking
this hovered a few Inches off. slowly
making Its way along the lop edge nnd
down the side, apparently guided by
the Incoming drafl of air. Next a
thorough exploration of the room was
made, and throughout the examination
It li.-ver once struck either chairs or
table and swerved aside when a stick
was placed in Its path. As a result
of this experiment naturalists believe
tbat bats have nn acute perception of
atmospheric currents and vibrations
resident in tbe nerves of tlie wing
membranes.
This matter was thoroughly Investl
gated so long ago a- IT'.).'?, when, by ths
rruel experiment of blinding the nni
muls, it was shown tbat tbey could
cross n room across which silken
threads wer.- stretched in such a waj
as to leave just sufficient .pace for
them to pass between with outstretched wings. Tbey not only siiocovdod in
passim.' the threads without touching
tbeni. but they avoided with equal ease
the walls and celling. Even when the
threads were placed still nearer togeth
*r they managed, by contracting the
wings, to pass without contact. Branch.
es of trees were similarly avoided, and
wbeu tired they suspended themselves
ou the walls of the room ns easily as If
ihey enjoyed the use of sight
From this It was Inferred that these
creatures possess a marvelously delicate sense of touch In the wing mem
branes. But It Is also regarded an
probable that this Is Increased by tbe
crpnnslon of the skin of the external
enr nnd by the development of folds
of skin on the nose nnd muzzle. In
some bats, indeed, a perfect rosette
of such skin Is developed in the latter
region, as In the "leaf nosed" bats,
and it Is supposed that the addition;.1
lobe of the ear, known as tlie "tragus,"
performs a si-_i._x fma-tJon.���Chicago

Generally speaking, races living at
high altitudes have weaker an*, more
highly pitched voices than those living
Ui regions where thn supply of oxygen
Is more plentiful, Thus among the
Indjans living on the plateaus between
the range- of the Andes, at an elevation ,,r from ten to fourteen thousand
feet, the men have voices like wo. ten
and tlie women like children, and theit
singing is ft shrill monotone The Australian native has a weak voice, but
a knack of sending It a long distance,
and the lowest tribes of African bush-
men nlso possess weak voices. Of all
human being.-* It would seem that the
dwarf race discovered by Stanley In
central Africa have, In point of volume

voices, nnd this i.-i only what one
