Nelson. B. C, Aug. 2.���The entire town of Fernle has heen destroyed iby fire
kitO have been rendered homeless by the conflagration.
They were forced to flee hack into the hills.    Definite details of the disaster are meager because of inter-
ed communication owing to a severe storm that has been raging.
A neglected bush fire Is the cause of the calamity.
Word has been received at Cranbrook to forward all available provisions.    Relief trains have been started
doctors, nurses and food on board.
A bush lire had -been raging for several days on the opposite side of the Elk River from Fernie. Yesterday
Jnooti the flames leaped across the stream and their progress v;as irresistible.
As near as can be estimated, the total loss will be between $_,500,000 and $".,000,000.   The heaviest loser is
^row's Nest Pass Coal company, whose local works are valued at $.r>C0,000.    The Elk River Lumber company
nse $300,000.    The largest building in Fernie was that of the Royal hotel and next came the Trites Wood
���anv  both of which have been reduced to ashes.   No estimate of the amount of insurance carried is avail-
Fires are also ranging between Cranbrook and Crow's Nest, and threatening to destroy these towns.
Fernie seems to have been an ill-starred town.   This is the second iblg fine.   A year or so ,ago an enormous
Ude destroyed  many  lives  and much property.   A flood also did great damage not long ago.

In linn s of dire stress, in llvl luals and cities hasten to each other's

needed quickly.   Thousands are starving and without shelter.
When the disastrous earthquake of April 18, L906, laid waste the
proud city of San Francisco, help poured in trom all quarters. The
Daily News opened a subscription in this city, in a tew days the
sum of $563 ha<l been collected and forwarded to the relief committees.    The city council voted $250 for tin* relief of the sufferers.
As much and more can be���will be���done by Westminster in the
present instance. The Daily -News takes the initiative in opening a
subscription list with a donation of $25.
Subscriptions will be received at this office and acknowledged
through these columns. Arrangements will be made today for the immediate forwarding of the money to the stricken centre.

77iis Is My 36th Birthday
King of Norway.
Haakon VII. King of Norway, was born August  3, 1872, at Char-    -**;
lOttenlund castle, in Denmark.   Prior to his election to the throne of    #
the Norwegian people in 1905 he was  Prince Charles of Denmark, the    g
second son of the present ruler of Denmark.    He  was  educated  for    |
the navy and was known as one ot" the mos;  popular and democratic
members of the. royal families of Europe.    In Is'.'-* he was married to
Princess   Maud,   third   daughter of King Edward VII. of Great Britain
Tnere was considerable opposition to the marriage, as Maud was the
daughter of the future king of England aud Charles was only a Danish prince.   At that time no one dreamed of the brilliant    future    in
store for Prince Charles.    After the marriage Prince Charles was well
received in England.   His father-in-law .became proud of him and often employed him in delicate and important missions.    When Norway-
severed her connection with Sweden and  decided to have a king of
her own the name of Prince Charles was the only one seriously considered in connection with the throne.     In 1905   Prince  Charles  and
Princess Maud were crowned at Trondhjem under the  titles of King
Haakon and Queen Maud     The royal  couple have one    child,    little
Prince Olaf, now in his sixth year.

On Novunber VS. 1755, "a little after
1 on a serene nml pleasant niu-ht"
Boston wis roused by an earthquake
whicb lasted nearly live minutes A
writer of the times f_i.es an account
of the catastrophe, and Rev Uenrj
White tineles It in his "Early Hi torj
of New England:"
cue hundred chimneys were leveled
to Hie roofs of the houses and fifteen
hundred were shattered iu part. The
struts were covered with bricks whl ii
had fallen. The ends nf brick bouses
were thrown down.
lt was first Introduced with n noise
. several coaches rattling over pavements, or rather like many cart loads
Ol !>a*.iii;r slones thrown down. The
hrst motion was a strong pulsation,
which threw my house upward. Immediately uftcr a tremor succeeded;
then Instantly a quick vibration with
sudden .lerlaK followed.
The lirst view I had was of the
steeples of the churches, and I was
glad to see them standing, but the
spindle ami vnne of Faneuil Hall
market  were thrown down.
Many persons ran Into the streets,
shrieking with apprehension of Its be-
ItiK the lust day or the judgment, nnd
some thought they beard the last
trumpet sounding and cried for mercy.
The beast creatures lowed, the birds
fluttered In surprise, and nil the animal creation was filled with terror.
Every face looked ghastly, snd many
knees smote together. Never wus such
s scene of disaster ln New Kngland before.

ef Such a Cou rea.
"And whatever you do," said a doctor to a poor patient, "don't take any
borrowed medicine."
"Wasu't thnt an uunece*>snry cau-
uou?" nskod n woman who happened
to be present.
"Not ln this neighborhood," said tbe
'. doctor.   "It ts a common thing for peo-
i pie down here to lend medleW.   They
do It,  of course, to help each other
| uloug.   go far as I know, no one has
paid  the penalty   of   this  neighborly
kindness with  his life,  but lt is the
greatest wonder In the world that one-
Lalf the people In the neighborhood
hasn't poisoned the other half.
"Tbe first thing a sick person does is
to describe his symptoms to his friends.
He is pretty sure to find somebody ln
tbe crowd who has been afflicted with
uppareutly the same ailment. Usually
tbe former patient bas some of tbe
medicine left nnd straightway it Is
proffered as n possible cure.
" 'You might just as well have It.'
mats the kindly neighbor. 'It will be
pretty sure to help you and will save
fiovto/s bills.'
"Of course It doesn't do anything of
tbe kind. Nine times out of ten the
stuff taken was prescribed for an entirely different nilment and makes the
patient worse than he was ln the beginning, but until the ultrulstlc spirit results iu some serious accident the practice is likely to centluue."���New York

The Chatty English.
Every Englishman likes to tie alone
end have tblugs to himself. If he cannot choose his conipany, he would rather have none. Englishmen ure proud
of the national Idiosyncrasy, yet here
comes one who, knowing all this, pays
It uo deference, but sets the national
tradition at defiance and forces his Intrusive presence on you. Why does
this denationalized Englishman, when
he may be as solitary as you wish te
be yourself, not act as every true Enp
llshmitn ought and go into the next
carriage or take a seat at the other
side of the room as far away as he
can get from you? By all acknowl
edged laws of English Intercourse he
ought as much to dislike being near
you as you dislike to be near him.���

Miraculous Cures.
Reginald of Durhum.  who wrote a
chronicle some time  before  1195, asserts that a young  English nobleman
was cured of leprosy nt the shrine of
St Cuthbert lu Durham cathedral and
that a young woman who had been for
tbe space of three years au Inmate of
n large hospital established nl Badele,
near   Darlington,   lu   the   diocese   of
j Durham,  was  rfilruoulously  healed  at
' the shrli^ of St. Oodrlc at Btnchdals
In the presence of Ralph Haget, sheriff of the county, and  Norman, parish
priest of Halltuue.- St. James' Oar.ette
It Didn't  Break.
A little girl held u mirror up before
a visitor's face and asked, "Do you see
yourself ln it?"
"Yes, my darling."
"Are yon quite sure?"
"Yes.   Why should I not?"
"Because I heard mamma say the
other day  that  if  you  ever peeped
Into a looking glass you'd smash lt all
Into tiny little bits!"
He Ceuld Dedge.
"There's nothing slow about Jones,"
he said reflectively.
Tbe other laughed scornfully.
"I guess-you never loaned hlm any
, money." he said.
{ "Ob. yes, I have," replied the first
speaker. "That's what made me speak
that way. I loaned him $10 six months
ago, aud I haven't been able to catch
him Since."

Do not forget that Mr. Borden tried
to mislead the electorate by stating
that the Grand Trunk Pacific would
cost the country 1250,000,000 when it
will only cost the country $38,769,126.
By actual proof Messrs. Graham and
Fielding showed Mr. Borden to^ be
nearly $212,000,000 out in his calculations. A small mistake like this
does not bother Mr. Borden.
There was a well authenticated
rumor, so the Conservative press told
us some weeks ago, that Hon. Richard
.McBride was to be made ,a Knight,
and that, at the tercentenary, the
Prince of Wales would tap the Premier of British Columbia on the
shoulder and command him to "rise
.Sir Knight." Something must have
happened, the delivery was not made,
perchance His Majesty's memory fiail-
t'ti him, or il may he that the Kin*.
would like to see something done entitling "Dick" to recognition from the
Throne. Let us see, was he not at
the foot of the Throne away back in
the past ? The King is kept well
posted as 10 the movements of important personages who enter the
.Metropolis of the Empire, keeps close
tab on them, so to speak, and invariably knows all about the person
whose name is suggested for recognition by His Majesty before it is mentioned. Perhaps he remembers some
things Mr. McBride said when Sir Wilfrid Laurier was Knighted and is
afraid it might hurt the Premier's
feelings to offer him the honor.
King   Edward   is  very    considerate
and  will  never offend if    it  can    be
avoided, and may for this reason have
refrained  from  burdening  lhe  Prince
of Wales with a commission he might
have had to return. There is the other
extreme suggested, that  Mis .Majesty!
never heard of Mr. McBride, does not I
know  of  his existence even:   hut we I
think this could not be, because    the
Premier  would not   fail  to invite him
to  lunch  when  In  the  -Metropolis    toi

words "final -and unalterable.1'   It ia a I ]
sorry  mix-up and  we do not see how
the   Conservative press is   going   to
explain   it.
tanglement of 1896. lt is the policy of
t.ie Laurier government to relieve anj
suffering industry by lessening the
taxation it must pay. not by increasing the taxation the public must pay
to it.
On woollen goods imported from
Germany the present duty reaches
close to half the cost. On German
goods purchased this addition goes to
the public treasury, and on similar
local products It would go to the protected manufacturers. They say tbat
even tills extra payment must be increased or they cannot compete. The
Conservative press has demanded that
it be increased. What, do the people,
now paying half as much again as the
cost of these woollens, think of the
demand that the cost be still further
augmented ? How are they going to
vote on the question ? Under representative government people will have
the policy they are prepared to vote
for. If they vote in their own interest
the policy will he designed accordingly, and if they vote otherwise their
Government must respond. Sir Wilfrid Laurier knew he would suffer the
antagonism of a strong political interest by refusing to increase the people's burdens for its lienefit. He stood
up for the interests of the public, feel-
in-' assured that the public would sustain him with a free endorsatlon It
is the people paying tariff ami ��� th r
taxation who should primarily be considered in drafting rates on duty, not
the people who profit by ihe levies.
There should ibe no taxation without
Conservative leaders in their ec rao-
inic innocence are behind every demand for higher tariff taxation, whether they are in power or in opposition The protected interests are
sure of them under all circumstances.
Knowing this, it seems a most foolish
thing to precipitate a political controversy by bringing the tariff in its
worst form back into party politics.
To say that the tariff is out of politics
is absurd. Taxation, the primary function of the people's representatives,
can never be allowed to pass from
under thei:* uirect and immediate control, and the tariff, v.*e must not forget, is taxation. But those who benefit by the tariff can avoid the attacks
of a political issue by refraining from
sporadic attempts to play one party
against another in an effort to secure
larger Savors.���Globe, July 2...

There Is clearly an attempl to make
an issue by attacking the Governmenl j
ror not increasing tariff taxation. The
demand of the woollen manufacturers
that the tax on wollens he increased
has be'ii made a text, and the Gov-

���to the demand. The excuse put forth

Adams Express Company Is
Robbed of Fortune by
Dishonest Employees.
New York, -Aug. -Jt.���The arrest of
three men In Brooklyn at an earlj
hour today disclosed the fact that the
Adams Express company has lost
$100,000 ihrough a series of trunk
robberies In that borough.
The prisoners who are In the toils
of the Brooklyn headquarters described themselves aa Alread Wilfort,
20 years old, a lather; John S. Cook,
IT years, a plumber's helper, and Alfred Moule, 18 years, a driver.
These three meu, according to    tue
Brooklyn headquarters, are suspected i
of knowledge of trunk robberies which
total $20,000.    Three more drivers are
searched tor by the police.
According to the detectives, lhe
. Adams Kxpiess company has been
robbed by *i clever system of counter-
felt checks and tags, made by a job
printer who is in league with the
gang of trunk thieves. When a trunk
which was to be stolen was given to a
driver at some one of the express
depots in Brooklyn, the drlveT would
put on the trunk the bogus check and
tag. Te would then deliver the trunk
in question at the house of an accomplice.

naval militia ls one with a history.
It seems, says _Vpplelon's Magazine,
that many years ago, when lt was the
custom for the insurance underwriters
to put up at auction vessels that had
heal long overdue and not heard from,
a   young   apprentice   lu   Philadelphia
happened to attend one of these auctions at which a large ship named the
Dorothea  was put  up for sale.    The
vessel had taken aboard a very valuable cargo,  which would go with  tho
ship to the successful bidder, but tho
very   fact  that  the   property  was  so !
valuable   had  kept   the   underwriters
from selling the craft until long after
la had become generally believed that
I she was a total wreck.    Consequently
1 tho   auctioneer   cried   the   good   ship
Dorothea many times without getting
'j n  bid.    Finally the young apprentice
Jokingly bid $5, and, as nobody woufd
I hid higher, the vessel and her cargo
' were knocked down to hlm.    Imagine
I the   astonishment   of   the   mnritlnie
I world when the Dorothea was reported
sailing Into  Delaware  bay.    The apprentice sold his prize for enough to
start hlm ln business, nnd for years
the house tAus founded was one of the
leaders ln enteiprlse and resources ln
the Quaker City.   But at all times the
head of the firm and his family successors made a point of owning and
nperating a ship named the Dorothea,
which name also was always given to
the oldest daughter ln each succeeding
Shortly before the Spanish war, how
ever, the then head of the house wat
In falling health, and the only hope ef
saving his life, he was advised, was to
live at sea. Accordingly, he gave an
order to the Cramps for a large and
luxuriously appointed yacht, to be
called the Dorothea, of course, and no
expense was spared ln her construction
and equipment Unfortunately, death
came to the owner before his yacht
was quite finished, and the government
paid a fancy price for the Dorothea
early ln 1898.
With the close of the war there waa
no purely naval duty for which the
Dorothea was fitted, and yet the government did not wish to sell her, because there was no possibility of getting a price for her anything like what
she had cost. She was accordingly
laid up until the naval reserves succeeded in convincing the navy department that they were entitled to her.

Simply because a I ce has no ears on
tha sides of its head it is no sigu What- j
���ier that it is wholly without some
sort rd' an auditory nerve. This is
proved by the fact that grasshoppers,
crickets, locusts aud Hies all have their
ears situated in queer places���under
the wings, on the middle of the body
��nd even on Hie sales of their legs.
The common house fly does its hearing by means of some little rows of
corpuscles which are situated on the
knobbed threads which occupy the
place which are taken up by the hind
wings of other species of Insects. The
garden slug or shelless snail has Its
organs of hearing situated on each
aide of its neck, and the common
grasshopper has them on each of its
broad, flat thigh.. In some of thfc
smaller insects they are at the bases
of the wings and In others on the hot
tea of tbe feet.
Wonders ef Machinery.
Dependence upon machinery ls becoming almost an Instinct among the
workmen of a steel mill. A boy who
was sweeping the floor of a Pittsburg
mill, for example, found his path obstructed by a ten ton machine which
had not yet been put In Its place.
"Hello, Jim," he called to a laborer,
"come here and move this machine
back about ten feet. I want to sweep
under it."
Jim moved a traveling crane until lt
stood over the machine and lifted the
20,000 pound obstacle out of the way
as easily as If lt were a box of cigars.
The boy went on with his sweeping as
tf nothing extraordinary had happened.
He was a Pittsburg boy nnd accustomed to miracles. And electricity,

greatest   deeds   Ih   the   future.���Mun-

of   llii>   Wnlcr.
Judging from my experience, cats,
when living near water, are generally
fond of fishing. I have personally
knewu three feline fishers. One was a
mere acquaintance and used lo fish io
a trout stream. Tbe other two lived
witb r�� and during the Bummei
months used to fish in the lake nearl)
every evening. They would crouch on
the shore and suddenly jump into an
advancing wavelet, very frequently
bringing out a small fUb, When they
had kittens, I have sometimes ..wen
tbeni bring up to the house three fish
In the Rpace of un hour.
I know of a cat, whose home was lo
Westmorland, close to a stream, tbat
was a regular and accomplished fisher.
She was a half Persian. Her daugb
J?r belongs to friends of mine, and i
have myself seen this latter watching
tlie goldfish in tlie children's aquarium,
whicb at that time wus opeu at thu
top Hnd on a broad window seat. Puss
put in one paw and stirred the watet
violently, then sat down ro watch wlth
apparent satisfaction the terror of tbe
flsh, which she could not on that occasion reach. Once the family found she
l.nd caught oue aud killed a second, s��
the aquarium was afterward always
covered by wire or net. One of thii��
cat's kittens belonged to me aud waj
for her short life of under a year very
dependent on human companionship.
She came up to my bedroom frequently
the tirst thing in the morning and always took great Interest In tbe wash
baud basin, from which she would fish
out the sponge or soap, aud liked to
have her paw In the water. She had
to be kept out of the bathroom, aa
more than once she deliberately Jumped into the bath when it bad In it a
depth of two or three inches of water
If tills daughter and granddaughter of
the original Usher had lived near water, I think tbe fishing instinct would
have developed, as the three generations all showed a fondness for this
element, which cats, as a rule, are scp
poted to avoid.���London Spectator.

nd af the Home of Marr aad t**
Let rne give the main outlines of tha
tegeud. At Naznreth was preserved
with pious care the house of Our
Lady. The dwelling place tn whicb
ihe received the gracious message ot
the Incarnation, the lowly home vrhich
Iheltered the holy family for so man}
years, was n very precious sanctuary.
On May 10, 129L a month after Uk
inking of Tripoli and Ptolemals, this
holy house was carried by the hands
Df angels from Nazareth to a place In
Dnlmatia between Flume and Tersatl
on tbe Adriatic _hore.
It was a one roomed odlfli*e, built ot
red square stones, fastened with cement, and bore proof of nge and oriental design. It stood without any
foundations and had a wooden deeo
rated celling. The walls were covered
with frescoes; there were a door aud
a narrow window; Inside wm**. an
altar of stone, au ancient crucifix, s
small cupboard, containing a few ve*
���els of common use; a chimney aiu.
hearth. above which was a cedar
statue of Our Lady with the Holy
Child in her arms. The pastor of tha
place learned ln a vision that the building was the house of Our Lady, tho
stone altar that at which St. Petet
celebrated mass nnd the statue the
work of St. Luke the Evangelist. In
proof of the vision he was cured of a
serious Illness. A deputation of font
responsible persons forthwith were
sent to Naaareth to Investigate the
mystery, and they found that tha
house was do longer to be found.
Measurement nnd other menus tnkeq
proved that the house that had sml.

The result of the match did not
come as a surprise to the followers
of the game in this city, few believing
���that the boys would be in shape to
beat the Xccumsehs after their strenuous exertions during the preceding
days. The absence of Alex Turnbull
and Wlntemute from the lineup also
weakened the team to some extent,
and for these reasons the victory was
generally conceded to the Indians.
That the local enthusiasts did not
look for a Westminster victory is
best shown iby the fact that practically no money changed hands on the
game, supporters of the champions of
the world declining to back their
favorites on this occasion.
Beyond   the   shadow
