for ihe summary expulsion of Minister

make a demonstration against Venezuela.
Unless President Castro makes an
immediate apology to this country it
is probable that the Dutch ships will
bombard Ea Guyra, Puerta Cabello
and the other principal coast towns
of Venezuela.
The opinion is expressed freely
here that Cast.ra at last has exceeded
all bounds in his international insults
and nothing but an actual attack upon
Venezuela will bring him to a proper
realization of the rights of other
nations.
Reports from the Island of Curaoao,
of a movement of the Dutch and the
natives against the Venezuelan consul
and all things Venezuelan, has Increased greatly the belief that the
situation i.s critical and that summary action is necessary.

PROSPECTOR DISCOVERS
LAKE IN THE MOUNTAINS
Unknown   Species  of   Fish     Flounder
About in Stretch of Water Above
Clouds in Harrison Range.
While cruising about on the mountains back of Port Douglas, at the
head of Harrison lake, a prospector
named Yeoman, who was on the look-
���e.it for copper and silver prospects,
came across a lake of considerable
dimensions that is not marked on any
map of the district, and which, so far
as can be ascertained, had never before been seen by white men. in it
were found a peculiar species of fish,
which, from an inaccurate description, appear to be shaped something
like a seal, but much smaller. The
denizens of this mountain lake have a
broad flat head, a long tapering tail
and four legs or Hoppers, each equipped with five protuberances resembling we':,bed toes. None of the fish
have yet been brought down from the
lake.
Mr. Yeoman and his partner staked
three promising copper claims, and
will return to eomple'e their investigations early next week, when they
will probably travel further up the
mountains in seaTch of other prospects. Both are experienced men. and
from the nature of the copper- showings they have discovered, they are
convinced that there is n large
quantity of the mineral in the locality.

improvements on the Shamrocks lineup include Kavanagh in goal, Howard
at point and the once famous Hoobin

be set by the challengers.

The One Weakness.
The  Toronto Globe    comments    in
but a few of the bolder   spirits who;
"The one weakness of the westerners was their shooting. Had it been
better they would have doubled the
score. Their passing is gilt-edged, and
they are tricky and aggressive, but
their shooting was off color. Their
stealing of balls was remarkable. Time
after time a western stick got in the
way of balls meant for the Irishmen."
Stage Fright.
The Ottawa Free Press correspondent puts it in this way:
"At the start, the challengers were
nervous, but the nervousness gradually wore off. and after the first half
they steadily improved. Alec Turn-

Billy  and Len  Turnbull    were    also

of Montreal, gives a lengthy report of

of one goal, but when the gong
sounded for the end of the fourth
quarter the opinion of the majority
seemed to he that the cup will not. go

that it was the work of Feeney and

This Is My 49th Birthday
Mary  Anderson   Navarro.
Mary Anderson de Navarro, the American /actress who retired
from the stage when at the zenith of her popularity and fame, was
born July 28, 1859, at Sacramento, Cal. Her father was an Englishman and her mother of German descent. Her girlhood was passed in
Louisville, where she was educated in the Ursuline convent and in the
Presentation academy. In her sixteenth year she met Charlotte
Cushman in Cincinnatti and to her confided her ambition to go on the
stage. From the celebrated actress she received encouragement, and
after less than a year of study she made her debut at McAuley's
theatre in Louisville. The date was November 27, 1875. Her Juliet
was enthusiastically received by a large audience. A year later she

Borrow a watch from any one in
the company. Ask all your friends
to stand around in a circle. Hold
the watch to one person's ear and
lay: "It is gojng. Is that not so?''
Be will say, "Yes, that's so."
Hold it to the next person's ear
and t-ay: "Now it is not going. Isn't
that so?" He will say, "That's so,
for 1 can't hear it going."
So aU around the circle. One
person will Und it going. The nex.
one will fmd it not going.
The .rick is done by means of a j
loadstone which you hold in one .
hand. When you want the watch
to etop going transfer it to the hand
containing the loadstone, which will!
Immediately stop the movement o*_ I

When yon want it to go take it i

Each one tries to withdraw hli

The same leader continues until

Favorite Roys! Hones.
King Edward ind Queen Alei'
andra show their affection for thou
horses in a curious way. When a
favorite dies its hoofg are cut ofl
and polished, and the horse's name
is inscribed on each hoof. Those
are placed in a'row in ono of the
harness rooms at Sandringh.ini. On
the wall above are photographs oj
prints of the owner of the hoof_
Their majesties have tiieir favorite
dogs as well as their favorite horses.
Against a wall at the back of tiieir

Stone  forest-; nre found In   ��ariotu
pArts  of the world.    In  many  cases
they are hardened by some peculiarity
of the atmosphere and are found stand-
inn Just as they  were  when  clothed
with preen fottajre thousands of years
��go.   The Little Colorado river, tn Arl-
_ona, has long been famous as a locality for such buds.    At one place more
than  1,500 cords of solid stone,  tree
trunks, sections, linib_ and lo-?s, were
found  by  the government surveyors.
Most   of  them   were  tHJcifled,   many
seven to teu feet In diameter and from
���wenty to eighty fe -t lu height.   Geol
I ogists say tbat the petrified trees of
i tfce Little Colorado were once covered
j with  marl  over  1,000  feet  lu  depth.
i Some of the trees have beeu changed
to Jasper and have assumed various
' hues; others resemble opal, and when
broken open the core is often found
Joed with crystals of the most beaa
rtfttl tints.

DO NOT FORGET.
Do not forget that it was the Liberal
Government which brought the Public
Works Department to -New Westminster.
cornered by the Finance "Vlinister, Mr.
Fielding, he was forced to admit that
"ll was from the Ottawa correspondent of the journal in question'' whom
another member described as "salaried by the Canadian Pacific Railway."
The duplicity of Mr. Borden was exposed by Mr. Fielding in which he declared that Mr. Borden knew the importance of the difference between the
comment of a journal, and the comment of a correspondent to a journal
and it stood to his discredit that he
deliberately ignored it. And this is
the man the Conservatives hope to
lead them to victory.
BIG SHAKE-UP IN THE
TELEPHONE
SERVICE
"Thirty feet to the gulf."
San Francisco, July 27.���The greatest Bhake-up in the history of the
Pacific Telephone & Telegraph company is now in progress, consisting of
reorganization of the operative and
constructive departments, and the re-
districting of the large field covered
by the company will greatly improve
"its general service. Two of the chief
officials in San Francisco and Portland have been relieved of their
duties.

Astoria. July 26.���Sam Johnson, a
mill laborer, while in a drunken condition today, pulled a horse's tall in a
playful mood until the animal resented and kicked him in the head. He
cannot live. His skull was fractured
in three places, and in his unconscious condition Johnson raved for
six hours. An operation will be performed, but the doctors say he cannot
UNBLUSHING DUPLICITY.
Mr. R. L. Borden is the first salaried
leader of the Opposition in the Canadian House of Commons. Holding this
���Ktsition lie has had the genuine respect due to an honorable public man.
His official position almost, demanded j ,	
his being treated with deference Ueing j

and the public, honorable conduct, respect for integrity, straight forward
honesty, and unimpeachable frank-
li ess.
Respect and deference for him
seems to have been misplaced and it
is with extreme regret we find that
whereas in the past he has in a measure allowed the false statements of
his nontenants to pass without protest, he has now personally descended to the level of the dishonorable
George __ulus Foster in an incident
which must not, even in pity, be allowed to go unrebuked. On July 17,
instant, on the floor of the House of
Commons an attack was made by Mr,
Foster on the Government. Finance
.Minister Fielding replied, and so completely mopped the floor with the man
of insurance fame that Mr. Borden followed with a rescue speech for bis
chief lieutenant, "to tone down the
enthusiasm of gentlemen opposite" in
whicli be read statements and opinions, as being tiiose of the great London financial weekly, the Economist.
We give several instances as reported
In "Hansard" showing how deliberate
were his statements, without the
slightest excuse to palliate his henious
offence.    He said:
again necessitated the Intervention of
the troops, a number of the mill-
hand strikers were killed. Tbe determination of the authorities to shoot
down the rioters seems to have cowed
them, and the situation is now quieter.

In these passages he asserts absolutely and un iquovlcally thai the op.

The. Economist expressed no such

What Mr, Borden read were extracts

K    A WHISTLE.} STORY.
Tha Eagle 1 hat Wa* Mad* to Pom m
a Fighting Cock.
Apropos of something Whistler one
told a cockfight story _o vividly that
only a man with a sailor Instinct could
tell It as well, mimic it so keenly nnd
enjoy lt so thoroughly. It was a story
of a strange species of the American1
eock, pictured to the (.mallest detail so
beautifully that one forgot tbat tt war
a story.
Some American sailors were at a
cockfight ln a seaport town in Kngland when one nf them remarked to
the owner of the champion:
"We have got an American cock on
board that can whip any bird here."
"Go fetch 'lm on." said the champion.
"Chuck 'im ln and see. If '* licks one
bird we 'ave plenty more to throw In
that can lick bany blawstod Hamert-
can bird you can fetch er*.~
"All right We'll bring one," said tbe
Bailors. When they got aboard they
rigged up an American eagle. After
fhelr own manner, tbey painted, trimmed, spliced snd reefed fore and aft,
transforming the eagle to a eock. When
ready they went ashore to pit their
new American gamecock against all
England.
At the pit tbe sailors chucked la
their cock, whicb looked sround for
other surprises as he backed close to
the wall.
'Now, bring on your birds!" yelled
the sailors. A strutting cock was
thrown into tbe pit and was another
surprise to the poor dismantled eagle,
lie backed up closer and closer to the
wall, wondering what would happen
next. The cock walked three Umee
majestically around the circle, cuffing
at his strange Opponent, the eagle pitiably abashed and bedrsbbled, crouching lower and lower and looking
nround and above him for an explanation of what lt all meant, while the
crowd were yelling madly for the
English fighter. The eagle made himself smaller and smaller, but at last,
finding that he could get back no further and thinking that something was
expected of him, snd, as tbe cock
dashed at bim again, stretched out his
long claws and took his opponent by
lbe neck.
Here Whistler ended with an imitation by motions of what the eagle did.
He stretched ont his arm, shaped bis
hand like a claw, which by this time
looked like a real one, drew lt to hie
mouth and with one bite pulled off
the bead as he thought an eagle might
do It. Then he looked blandly about
thc room, as the eagle had done, at the
astonished crowd and said, "Now bring
on your other birds."���Otto Bacher lq

but the latter crowded bis horse ahead.
"Didn't you see me raise my 'and?"

"I did see the sky darken a moment,
