Deputation Waited on City
Council Last Evening.
Additional    Accommodation    Imperative, But Council Walks In Legal
Prisoner Without   a   Charge Is Once
More Subjected   to Court's
At tbe city hall, yesterday afternoon, Queensborough Improvement
association took up wltii the city
councli the matter of Improvements,
particularly ln drainage, set forth in
the petition submitted to the council
by the association some time ago.
Queensborough, tbat portion Of tbe
city which ls located on Lulu island,
the extent of which Is stated by tht.
man ln tho street to be s mile and a
half, and by real estate brokers to be
a thousan 1 acres, was represented at
yesterday's meeting by a large deputation, numbering among Its members
Mr. C. A. Robbins, president of the
association; Mr. A. Sprice, secretary,
and Mr. B. P. Symes, treasurer.
MayorT.ee, ln opening tbe meeting,
emphasized tbe fact that the members of the council were agreed aa to
the necessity of something being
done; the only difficulty was regarding how it could be done. It was
largely a question of legal powers.
The city solicitor hai given his opinion that tbe work could not be done
under Local Improvement. If il
could be done under the Municipal
Clauses Act, the Councll was willing
that it should be done. He Invited
tbe spokesman of the delegation,
whoever he might bo, to state the
Mr. A. Sprice stated the case for
the deputation. A petition had beeu
presented to the Council, he said,
signed by holders of ove: 50 per cent
of the assessed value of Queensborough. The signatories were willing
that petition as a basis from which
work they asked should be done. .Ho
asked that the Council should take
tbat position as a basis from which
to proceed. He was confident, he
said, tbat if a petition to the contrary effect were sent round. It would
not obtain a do-en signatures.
.Mayor Lee said that at present thfl
Council wa3 not considering opposi
tlon to the petition; the pe Ition was
all that was before the meeting. The
slty solicitor advised the Council that
the work could not be done under
Local Improvement.
Mr. Martin, city solicitor, wbo wns
present, safd there was no provision
tor the work being done under the
���rainago Act and charged te owners
Of property. If Ue knew definitely
what was asked for by the petiiion-
ers, he might be able to say how it
could be done.
Mr. Sprice read the petition which
was submitted to tho Council some
time ago, asUing for improved drainage and the provision and mainten
ance of a pump.
it appeared from discussion between Mr. Sprice and the city solicitor that the petitioners have ln view
not only the providing but the maintaining of tho pump. Mr. Sprice explained that tbe summer level of the
river is higher than the level of tho
land, so that the water In the ditches
could not flow out through the automatic floodgate. The water of the
river pressed against the gate and
the water In the ditches remained
stagnant. The proposed pump would
keep the ditches clear.
The city solicitor asked if the petition were signed by two-thirds of the
ratepayers or of the property values.
Mr. Sprice said ho had not the' a3-
segsment roll with him. but ho
thought it would be found that tho
petition reprqsente 1 three-fourths of
the value.
Mr. Martin asked how much propeity would be affected by the proposed improvement.
Mr. Sprice; "Every square inch
of property In Queensborough." Continuing, Mr. Sprice said the adjoining
land was In Richmond municipality,
where exactly what Queensborough
now aBked for was being done. The
pump would probably be placed at
tho southwest corner, where the
Kate is.
Mr. Martin, city clerk, suggested
that the deputation should meet him
at his office, and go over the mater
with him. He saw things differently
now. The first presentation of the
proposltlonhad been different. The
section of the act relating to pumping
stipulated that two-th'lrds of the rate
payers, or of the property value, was
Mayor Lee suggested that If Mr.
Martin submitted to the Council a
by-law for the carrying out of the
work lt would be favorably considered. The petition would have to be
sufficiently signed and sufficiently
Alderman Johnston suggested that
a committee ot the Queensborough
association and a committee from the
eounell should meet and go Into the
matter thoroughly with the city solicitor. The petition ln its present form
was largely signed. He thought that
if it was checked with the assessment roll lt would be found to Include more than two-thirds of the
valuation. He had not discussed this
matter with members of the associa-
" tion, but he.'was pf opinion that the
ditches of Lulu Island should be taken care of just the same as the
ditches in the city of New Westminster. There was no good reason why
the Improvements proposed should I
pot be made a part of the  general
John Beeoyk, the luckless, one-armed, one-eyed Austrian, wbo was projected temporarily into tbe limelight in connection with the Bank of
Montreal robbery, made another brief
flitting, and indecisive appearance ln
tbe police court yesterday morning.
Accused was represented by Mr.
Goodstone, Vancouver. On request
of Mr. Goodstone. a remand was
granted, and after some discussion
the date of the next hearing waa
fl *ed for November 14.
No charge was laid against Bezoyk
yesterday. There Is little doubt,
however, tbat the charge will bo tbe
one set out in these columns thd
other day, that of receiving money
whicb be knew to be stolen property.
Of course, almost as obviously,
tbere ls another charge whicb may
be laid against blm. He obtained the
money from little George Lavery under false representations he made to
tbe boy���under false pretences, as
tbe legal record runneth.
Trades and Labor Council is
work of the city, and paid out of the
general revenue. He had prepared
a statement showing the part of the
proposition of taxation which Queensborough paid to the city. The assessment commissioner said that in
1910 the gross taxes in Queensborough amounted to $9,f!81, and the net
assessment to $8,0fi7, cn an assessment of |403,3fl5. For mil the taxation on land was nearly $504 910,
with a gross income from Queensborough of $15,137. Lulu Island was
a very Important part of the city and
be thought every suggestion made by
the ratepayers should receive tho
greatest consideration. His opinion
was that the cost of this work should
be made part and parcel of the gen
eral street work of the city.
Mr. C. A. Robbins, one of the deputation, said he was glad to henr the
remarks of Alderman Johnston. He
referred to the fact that Queensborough has no public lights bevond the
middle of Lulu Island bridge, and
that the planking of two streets was
verv defective.
Alderman Bryson moved that this
matter of the drainage be left to the
finance commiitre. and a committee
*t the Queensborough association to
take up with the city solicitor.
This was agreed to. it was also
agreed that the Joint committee meet
with the solicitor on Friday at 3
The Lighting.
Alderman Gray, convener of the
lighting committee, pointed out that
the lights would have been extended
to Lulu Island but for tbe fact that
some of the necessary equipment ha.l
been delayed. The R. C. E. R. Co.
had the furnishing of the materia',
and some of lt had not come to hand.
There were three circuits, each and
every one of which is overtaxed. The
lights committee intended to make
four circuits and give Lulu Island
what was coming to It. As matters
stood it was Impossible to put in arc
Mayor Lee, after explaining that in
the absence of the chairman of the
Board of Works it was not possible
for anything to be said about the
streets, said that this year Lulu Island had got better treatment than It
had ln ten years. The.re.were streets-
in Sapperton which had not been as
well treated as Queensborough.
Alderman Johnston: "There was
nothing done previous to this year."
Mayor Lee: "The work was needed long ago, but, apparently, the city
council was not in position to do it.
This year Queensborough has got a
littlo better treatment than any other
section of the city. We have spent
on streets nearly as much as we got
out of the taxes. Tbe lights committee spent days going over the ground
trying to provide proper lights, such
as the district required. It is not a
questions of locality. The council is
here to do its duty by the city as a
Whole. I don't blame the association |
for asking for more, but we have
done all that was possible. We can't
go bfeyond our income. We are anxious to do anything that can be done.
and Queensborough will be supplied
with lights as soon as they come to
hand. It was tbe Intention of the
committee to have those lights ln by
September' or October, not later than
October. The pole line we expect to
have completed soon, and when that
is done the wires will be there.
"The question of tbe drainage of
Lulu Island Is a big question, so big,
indeed^, that \% must.be regarded as
quite separate and distinct from the
drainage ot thfe rest of the city. To
drain a flat, like Lulu Island, is quite
different from draining the side of a
hill. Wo are the trustees of the publlc. spending the money, of the ratepayers. Eyen if we were willing we
cannot spend all the money we have
ln putting Queensborough In shape.
If we neglected other parts of the
clty.s yon would know - what would
happen to us. .,'������*.

of the club, Mr. Balfour resigns tbo

1892. The loyal support of his friends
could not offset the' obvious disloyalty of tbe enemy within his own

claimed a victim yesterday, when
William Taylor, a laborer, was caught
in a landslide and so severely crush

after being taken out. Taylor was
taken out from under the debris and
carried Into the nearby drug store,
but it was found he was so Sadly* Injured that there was no hope of sav

City Solicitor on Ways and
The city council snd the board of
school trustees, at a joint meeting
yesterday afternoon, came sharply up>
against a proof that New Westminster ls experieclng the growing palm*
to which every rapidly growing city
is subject. The city council was prevent almost In full strength; the board
of school trustees was represented
by Dr. T. B. Green.
Dr. Green asked that the council
guarantee the sum cf. $14,337, whicb
Is necessary for the' building of an
addition of a wing of four rooms to
the Sapperton school now being
Dr. Green spoke of the increase of
school attendance all over the city,
and pointed tout that by the time tho
building of the new eight-room school
at Sapperton ls completed it will he
too small to accommodate the pupils.
He emphasized the fact that one ot
the additional wings, the erection of
which had now become absolutely necessary, could be built for something;
like $2,000, a sum very much less
than would be entailed by the addition of a wing after the main structure of eight rooms had been built-
He asked the council to guarantee
tbe expenditure of $14,337 additional
to the sum which was included in the
estimates male for this year, and
voted by the ratepayers ln January
City Solicitor Martin said he must
have regard to the legal bearing of
the  question.   His   interpretation    of
the  act   was  tbat  tbe  school  board
had  to prepare  Its estimates  of expenditure at the    beginning of eacfr
year.    The city  council    asked    tho
ratepayers to approve of   school   expenditure  once  every   year.     Thero
was    no   provision   made in law for
the exceeding of that expenditure.   It
was  legally    beyond    the power    of
the city council  to approve of extra-
ordinary  expenditures   oftener    than

House of Commons yesterday has
caused a great sensation on both
sides of the House, and it appears
likely to meet with much criticism,
lf not open opposition, from the Liberals as well as the Conservatives.
It waa understood that the next session would be devoted exclusively to
Home Rule ahd Welsh disestablishment, and the friends of these two
measures feel that the introduction
of another bill over which there is
bound to be great contention will
clog the legislative machine and
jeopardise all threi measures.
The Conservatives will oppose the
measure on the ground that It ought
to be accompanied by a "redistribution of seats." The bill, and its passage will be further complic*ted_by, of a,,,^^

them scattered  and  demoralized.
.... F���E.- Smith's Opportunity.
Now the opposition will have to reorganize. F. E. Smith ls probably
the youngest and most brilliant leader on their side, though nominally
Mr. Austen Chamberlain, son of tbe
great Joseph, may be chosen leader
at the annual meeting ot the Tariff
Reform league which, curiously
enough, takes place today. But Cham
berlain is not the man his father waa
and has none of the personality that
matches the popular Imagination. It
is F. E. Smith, who has been descrlb
ed as the Winston Churchill of the
Unionist party, who waves the flag
anl gathers round him that enthusiastic following which, however bad
or forlorn the cause, knows what It
wants and proceeds to get It by any
means in Its power.
A Profound Effect.
Mr. Balfour's resignation will have
a profound effect on the whole of the
political situation in Great Britain.
There can be no manner of doubt
that the recent Canadian elections
have influenced Mr. Balfour In hts
decision. He has never been a wholehearted supporter of Mr. Joseph
Chamberlain's polcy of tarlq reform.
He has played with It In a highly
scholarly and academic manner, but
has never launched bis bark on the
sea of production or bitten at the
cake of Imperial unity leavened with
trade treaties. But nevertheless he
has led the opposition with eonsum
mate skill. He was leader of the opposition in 1892 until 1895. Prime
minster 1902 to 1906 after Lord Balls
bury laid down his sceptre. In 190B
came the great debate of the Unionist party oh the question of tariff reform when the Liberals assumed power under Sir Henry Campbell-Ban-
herman and have held ft ever since.

Law's Three Necessities
A great judge said, many years
ago, that the three chief necessities
for a. barrister who wanted to succeed at the Bar were: "First, high
spirits; second, higli spirits, and
third, high spirits!" The judge added that if the young barrister also
knew a little law it would he no disadvantage! Rufus Isaacs possessed
the desirable "high spirits," and. in
addition, knew a great deal of law.
So liis success at the bar was assured.
At University College School, old
masters remember the dark-eyed Jewish boy's high spirits, wllich earned
forgiveness because the lad was. in

were not exactly pleasant, he acquired an inner knowle Ige of financial affairs which has served him well
ln commercial cases. He was advised
to read for the Bar. and by the time
he was 27 he was "called." Success
came so quickly to him that in eleven
years he "took silk," and fiom that
auspicious day he has never looked

Sir Rufus Isaacs is leading to understand why this brilliant advocate
bas reached the high position he
holds today.
Provocative   Courtesy.
I had the good fortune to listen
for a week to a great case in which
Sir Rufus was the leader, lf he was
absent from court on other business
for an hour or two, it was as though
the lights were turned low. When he
returned, everyone woke up, and
there was electricity ln the atmosphere again.
His suavity makes him all the more
deadly. When he rises to cross-examine a witness nothing seems less

which he cannot escape. Supposing

For one hour and liity minutes be

such an oratorical effort would havo

It Made    Remarkable Scene  in
House of Representatives.
A touching scene occurred ln the
House of Representatives a number
of years ago when an aged member
from New Jersey arcse and for the
first time addressed the speaker. All
eyes were turned in bis direction as
he stood calmly awaiting recognition.
He was tall, spare and erect. His
venerable appearance and kindly expression, coupled with most courteous
manners, at once commanded attention.
As in husky tones he again said
"Mr. Speaker" there came from the
farthest end of the great hall ln a
whisper, but distinctly heard by all,
the words, "Sweet Alice, Ben Bolt."
A moment later and from the floor
and gallery many voices blended in
the familiar refrain, "Don't you remember sweet Alice, Ben Bolt?"
The ovation which Immediately follower was such as Is rarely witnessed
ln the great hall. Business was
suspended for the moment and the
hand of the new member warmly
grasped by the chosen representatives of all parties und sections, lt
was an Inspiring tribute, one worthily
bestowed. The member was Thomas

poem, sung In palace and cottage,

Belgrade, or Beograd, means "the
White City," and as the visitor
crosses the Save he sees a mas3 of
white houses straggling over a triangular hill and glistening ln the
sunlight. This hill stands due south
of the confluence ot tbe Save and
the Danube, and is washed to the
northwest by the one, and to the
northeast by the other. At th�� back
of the hill stands the ruins of the
old Turkish fortress which in former
days guarded and dominated the
town. Through the main street of
this white city, some eight years
ago. King Peter rode In a sort of coronation procession, tbe bridle of hts
horse beld by one of tbe leaders of
the army, and hls passage applauded
by shouting citizens who had grown
tired of the rule of King Alexander
and his non-royal queen.
There was no heroism' about the
methods which gained King Peter the
throne. A blacker business cannot be
painted. Tbere was a good deal of
courage, however, Involved in this
ride, for lt meant that he offered
himself as a mark to any desperate
adherent of the late King Alexander
ln a town where assassination is
looked on as part of the ordinary
business of a revolution. Kng Peter
has always shown himself a brave
roan. He fought for France in the
Fraitc0-Prusslan /war of 1870, and
acquitted himself so well that he was
awarded the Cross of the Legion of
Honor for valour on the Held of battle���a decoration which he ls more
proud of than any which have since
been conferred on himself or his
family. This partisanship of his was
due to his course of training at St.
Cyr, and when he eventually visits
Paris he will find many old comrades
of his academy to welcome him.
He has further shown courage by
his determined maintenance of his position on the Servian throne in spite
of the hostility of Europe, the constant danger of assassination by his
own mutinous subects, andj the difficulties brought on him by the mad
conduct of his elder son. There is
very little doubt that his courage
and perseverance will be eventually
rewarded by the tardy recognition of
Europe. The recent marriage of Princess Elena to a scion of the Russian
Imperial House will no doubt help
this, for besides his distant connection with the tsar, the Crown Princess of Germany, the Crown Princess

visits to ltupsla and Italy are the best,be warm,
proofs of this. W���
The palace is high placed on the
hill in the center of the town. The
northern front looks over the river
towards Temesvar. where his father
diet, and the great plain of Hungary.
Far away on the left Is the mysterious Mount \vala. To the right the
Danube broadens as lt flows on towards the Iron Gates. The front
opens on to the main street. Attached to the palace ls a pretty garden
well laid out, the chief feature of
which is a regular maze of shrubberies.
The entrance lies through a lofty
porch and a spacious hall, at the end
of which is a great double staircase.
The dining-room is a fairly spacious
apartment, which Will accommodate
some flfty or sixty guests���that is
about one-tbiri of the number that
ls usual at state dinners at St.
George's Kail, Windsor. There are
a large and lofty ballroom and a
handsome reception room, where the
king sometimes receives visitors in
informal audience anil, usually,
guests who are going to dine wit'.i
One of the noticeable features of
the palace Is the carved ceilings,
which are somewhat In the Turkish
style, and really finely executed.
Worthy of notice la the suite of
apartments for royal guests. Theso
have not yet been used; but it is probable that not very long hence they
will be prepared for the arrival of visitors of royal rank.
King Peter leads a simple life, to
which his early troubles and training have accustomed l.im, and which
accords with the habits of Servla. He
rises early, breakfasts with his family���now diminished by the marriage
of its most charming members���and,
after a walk in the gardens of the
palace, settles down to transact the
business of the day. This Involves
a good number of Interviews with M.
Mllovanich, the Prime Minister, for
at present Servian politics and International relations are always on the
verge of a "sensation," as M. Grou-
itch. the minister over here, has good
reason to know. When the national
business has been put through, the
king very often receives foreign representatives ln audience, or grants
interviews to foreign travellers who
possess the right credentials. To
foreigners hls majesty is very easy
of access, and he would gladly dispense with all precautions if it were
possible with'due regard to his safety.   At present, however, lt is not.
King Peter has always been a keen
sportsman, and has pursued this
taste wheuever he was able. When
he resided at Rljeka. ln the house
given him by Prince Nicholas ot Mon-
tenegro. on his marriage to Princess
Zorka, he used often to accompany
his father-in-law in the chase. Now
he occasionally indulges in shooting
excursions in the mountains.    He is

Too Many Books.
Barnaby Rich in his preface to "A
New Description of Ireland " published in lfiOO, writes. "One of the diseases of this ape is the multitude of
books that doth so overcharge the
world that it is not able to digest
the abundance of idle matter that ls
every day hatched and brought into
the world, that are as dlverB in their
forms as their authors be in tbeir
faces. It ls but a thriftless and
thankless occupation, this writing of
books. A man were better to sit
singing In a cobbler's shop, for his
pay is certainly a penny a patch! But
a book writer, if he gets sometimes a
few commendations of the Judicious,
he shall be sure to reap a thousand
reproaches of the malicious."

In China helps to explain the. docility
of the people under an intricate series of rulers.   It shows the sentiment
of  Individualism   which   in  the  long

years must be likened to the sleep of

of intense activity.    The  misconceptions of other nations   have    arisen
through the habit of magnifying the
importance of International trade, international    meddling    iind    International aggression.     Trade within national  boundaries  can he    quite   as

explained by many facts, the !uw
plains and broad valleys of Mars are
covered with vegetation which, presumably, is maintained by the humidity of the atmosphere. There
water vapor most naturally settles.
What is tlie nature of the vegetation
that develops so profusely and so
rapidly? Are thc great sheets of verdure forests or swamps, and what are
the animals that live in them?
Earth's astronomers know nothing
beyond the fact that, if Mars is of a
formation more recent than the formation of the terrestrial globe, its
evolution must have been more rapid,
because it ls so small. Mars is an
older world than the earth��� a world
that represents the intermediate stats
between that of tlie earth and that of
the moon. The phenomena cn Mars,
now under the observation of earth's
astronomers, are the last manifestations of a dying life. Slowly, very
slowly, time is doing its work. Mars

In view of the valuable stock feeding properties of molasses, says Mr.
��� D. H. Ross, Canadian Trade Commissioner tn Australia, the. existing
waste of this by-products of the'
sugar industry is deplorable. According to the 1910 report of the Queensland government statistician 7,329,870
gallons of molasses were produced
ln that season, of which something
like 1,750,000 gallons were allowed to
run to waste. The official return
shows that upwards of 2,500000 gallons were sold���mostly to distilleries���220,750 gallons were consumed
as fuel, 65,000 gallons for manure,
and 1,087,779 gallons for food for
-stock, leaving 1,500,000 gallons to be
carried forward. Even at 2d. per
gallon, which IS regarded as a modest estimate, the admitted waste during last season represents between
��14,000 and ��15.000.
Inquiries have been made at this
office respecting the probable requirements of British Columbia as a
market for tbe excess production of
molasses. Upon going into figures 't
was found that the cost of packages
and the lack of shipping facilities
would, under present conditions, likely render the business unprofitable.

"Pull out one gray hair and a dosen

which is, to a great extent, true, if no

gray hairs appear it is a sign that Nature needs assistance. It is Nature's
cnll for help. Gray hair, dull, lifeless
hair, or hair tliat is falling out, is not
necessarily a sign of advancing age, for
there are thousands of elderly people
with perfect beads of hair without a
single streak of gray.
When gray hairs come, or when the

��feed is relative. And the speed
at which man travels Is even now
low down in the scale of rapid motions. Begin with the slowest of moving objects and not the forms and
conditions by which nature Increases
her speed.
The movements of glaciers are negligible. The same may te sail of
microscopic animal life. Coming to
the visible forms of animal life we
think at once of the snail, which goe3
at the rate of about one-hundiedths
of an inch a second.
The tortoise, also a symbol for
slowness, covers less than half an
inch a Becond. The hare, which the
tortoiBe Ib fabled to have defeated in
a race, runs sixty feet in a second.
The best recorded speed of a running horse is sixty-two feet a second
for n short distance. It Is said that
the tiger will cover forty-six feet in
a second: the elephant, seventeen
feet; the foxhound sixty feet; the ostrich, helped by its wings, 180 feet.
But most of these figures obviously
are hard to verify.
With flying birds, too, although
many of them have been carefully
timed, we cannot be certain that the
figures given are corre ��t except perhaps in the case of the carrier
pigeon. The record for a pigeon flying 100 miles ls about 125 feet a second. However, homing tlzeons are
said to have flown nearly half as fust
again for short distances. For the
eagle the estimated distance ln a
eeeonl is 75 feet, for tbe wild .roose
150 feet, for the swallow perhaps
300 feet, the swallow being the king
of steed in the air.
Without the artificial ai.'s of speed
which h!g genius bas developed, man
is cne of the slowest of the large animals in eetting over the ground.
The fastest running record for 100
yards was made at the rate of a fraction more than 31 feet a second. A
mile has been run at the rate of 20
and a fraction feet a second. Ten
miles have been done at lfi 7-10 feet
a second. The best speed of man
then is about half as fast as the best
speed of the horse.
The superiority of man appears in
his use of mechanical aids to speed.
He has chained the swifter animals
to his service.   There was a man on
the   back   of  the   horse   that,   made
the best equine running record. Even
with   so   simple   a   contrivance   as
skates man has done almost as well
as the horse, covering a mile at the
rate of nearly  forty  feet  a  second.
An   iceboat   covered   one   and   two-
tenths miles in 31 seconds.   This wa3
at the rate of more than 204 feet a
second, or about 140 miles an hour.
That exceeds the steam locomotive
record of one mile In thirty seconds
or 17fi  feet a second.      But a train
traveled   between   Chicago  and   New
York, !H.O milfs, at the rate of sixty
miles an hour, excluding stops.    Another train made elghty-cne miles at
ihe  rate  of seventy-five an.l eighty-
four one-liundredths   mile3 an   hour.
What to Do When Your Hat ts Tipped
Over Your Eyes In a Crowd.
For a man tbere Is only one really
safe pocket, and tbat ls a pocket
wbicb tew men except experienced
race goers bave their buIU supplied
with. It Is a breast pocket Inside tbe
wulstcoat. and It should bave a buttoned flap, for without the button even
tbis hiding place Is unsafe.
The second best place for carrying
money is the trousers pocket,especially
If the owner Is rather stout. And tbo
left baud pocket Is better than the
right. A skillful thief stantling behind you may Insinuate his right band

tbe left comes awkwardly to bim.
For safety's sake the pickpocket seldom works single bunded. Be usually
works with a couple of ������screens." who
plant themselves In front of the intended victim. If the "Job" Is a ditll-
cult one they carefully Jostle him ut
the critical moment lu order to distract bis attention. This Jostling Is
usually colled "working the rump."
A fnvorite trick in a dense crowd Is
to tip a mau's hat over, as though accidentally, ills bunds naturally fly up
to set It right Instead tbey should go
straight to tbe watch and tbe money

a crowd make sure your money pocket
Is safe before troubling about tbe bat.

The trained pickpocket's fingers are

Just   a   little   present     The   duchess
thought lt would be useless to expend

thought if she would look through her

the addition  of  her card  would  give
sufficient glory.    She flually found lu

tor human speed,
The earth travels In its orbit round
the sun nineteen miles a second. The
sun itself, like all the other stars.
has its own proper motion through
space. Some authorities have calculated its speed at twelve miles a second. A few stars move more slowly
than this; others much more rapidly.
'Areturus maintains a speed of not
less than 100 miles a second, and the
star called "Broombridge 18;!U" travels 150 miles in the sanv; brief time!
��� But the average jcate_Qf _mqtion of
the stars ln space seems to be not
much more than that of the earth in
its annual journey round the sun.
Shooting stars or meteors move
with a velocity of from twenty-five to
forty-five miles a second. Comets, at
the distance of the earth from the
sun, move at ahout the same rate;
but their speed increases as they
near the sun. The great comet of
18S2 swept round the sun with a velocity of 300 miles a second.
But the speed of the heavsnly
bodies are slow compared with the
motions of tho tiniest known particles of tnat ter. The sun woul.l seem
to stand still could we compare its
velocity wilh that of ths radium
"rays." These radiations are pro
duced by successive explosions of
tiny groups Ol the tiny atoms of radium. The "alpha rays"���being themselves infinitesimal fragments of matter���are thrown out with a velocity
of perhaps 12,000 miles a tecond.
The "beta rays" travel still faster.
In the emanations of this wonder-! '"
ful radium we find the highest known
speed of matter in motion. At 12.000
miles a second it would take little
more than two seconds for patt'cles
of matter to travel all the way round
the earth. Look at your watch and
note the duration of two seconds;
then imagine that in a chariot drawn
by "alpha ravs" you have been round
the world. There is hardly time in
two seconds for you to think the journey.
The highest measured speed, however, is not the speed o.f matter, hut
the speed of that etheric, vibration
which we call light. And light travels
at the rate of 186.000 miles a second.

 A  Story of a  Great Painter.
Van Dyck, who was a pupil of
Rubens, had much pride in his own
work, as Is shown In the following
tale: The canons of a certain church
asked him to paint a picture for them
and when it was done and they saw
it the canons called him a "dauber"
and went away disgusted. Van Dyck
was only a young man then and had
no redress, but after awhile some
critics passed upon the picture and
declared it to be wonderful. The canons were sorrry fnr their mistake
and to make amends gave him a
commission for iwo more pictures.
But Van Dyck was on his dignity,
and he sent them word that there
were plenty of "daubers" In their
own place without calling Upon those

The Nautilus,
Many years ago a Dutch naturalist
went to the Indian seas to Study
shells. When he came back, he told
the story that the nautilus sailed in
troops over the sea and were able.
when they wished, to fill themselves
with water and sink to the bottom
This, It has been found, is not tine.
The nautilus commonly inhabits the
bottom of the sea. where It creeps
about by means of a large muscular
disk with which the head is furnished, and it rarely rises to the surface
or is seen floating there. The interior
of the shell Is divided into chambers
connected by a little tube, which affords air. The shell has most exquisite coloring, from pearly white to
varied motley.

King and Queen Want Prince Consort's Rare Book.
Does any public library or prvate

on the subj��et nf Balmoral���a work
dealing with the topojrranhy, the
botany, the geoloey, the history, and
the romance of the country? It was |
beautifully printed by one of the
principal English firms, in a manner
regardless of cost. But by the prince's
strict orders, only six copies were
struck off. Curiously enough, no
trace cf this book remans. The
libraries of Windsor Castls, of Ral-
moral." of Buckingham Palace, pnd of
Saudrincham. have been searched in
vain. So. ton, hns the nat'onal library at the British museum; while
the various libraries at Cobnurg and;
nt Gnthn, at Potsdam, Berlin, and:
Vr'enna, have been ransacked for the
book, with no success whatsoever.
It is assumed that even if four of thi
copies had been destroyed, two, or
even one, must have survived, and
since it cannot bj found in Europe.
'.t is hoped that some trace thereof
may be found in Cnnada or the United States. Any bibliophile who enn j

Dodging Sunstroke.
If you want to avoid sunstroke you
should have a red lining in your hat.
This is the conclusion reached by The
Lancet in a seasonable leader on the
ubject ol that t rrible disease. The
theory that, in The Lancet's opinion,
best accounts for heat-stroke is the
actinio theory of Col. F. Maud;, R.E.
He had suffered from several attacks
f sunstroke when he conceived the
idea that the rays of the sun which
caused the trouble were not the heat
rays, but the actinic or ultra-violet
rays, which are photographically and
chemically the most active. It occurred to him that if he lined his helmet
With red to cut off these ruys, just as
a photographer uses a red light while
he is developing, he might prevent
-unstrnke. He tried it, and for many
yean he never had another attack. An
officer who did not believe in the
theory, however, one day surreptitiously abstracted the red lining lrom
Col. Maude's hat as he was about to
:;xpose himsell to the sun, with the
result tbat,Col. Maude again suffered
?rom sunstroke, and experienced great
eha^rin at the supposed failure oi his
iieory until the repentant officer told
liim what he h..d done. Another officer, who had suffered three times from
sunstroke, and been invalided for
nearly five years through it, also lined
his helmet with red, and had no fur-.
the! trouble, not even a headache.
A Titled Woman's Service.
The Marchiohess of Dufferin and
Ava ia among the British society
women to interest herself in tht��
conditions under which women work
in the linen and embroidery factories
of Belfast.
Her observant eye discovered much
to condemn in this course of her investigations, recently, into the lives
of the women, young and old, who
produce most of the fine raiment fos
which Belfast ia famous. She found
sweating in its most inhuman forn^
in many factories, while the sanitarj;
conditions and moral tone of many
workshops came to her as a sickening revelation.
She sought out "Joe" Devlin, the.
eloquent Nationalist member for
Belfast, well known as one of John
Redmond's chief lieutenants in the
British House of Commons, pointing
out to him the disgraceful condition*
under which thesa women worked.
The result is that the Board ot
Trade has been forced to institute
an immediate inquiry which may,
have a far-reactung effect upon the;
Linen industry in the northern capital.'
.Hard  to   Kill.
Au alligator's tenacity of life is remarkable. "I remember one time,"
says an English traveler in India, "1
was with a shooting party on the
Ganges, when the natives brought in
a six foot alligator. They hoped some
one would want to buy it; but no one,
did, so it was determined to kill thei
creature. It was hauled out of the'
tank and tied to a tree. Bullets from,
a small rule or an ordinary twelve;
bore gun seemed to only irritate thej
saurian, snd he did not seem to care'
* y much when a ��� native thrust al
s^'ear down his throat. Finally they;
were obliged to get axes and cnop off.
its head. Even then the tail thrashed
around, and the body was almost cat
to pieces before all movement ceased."

Foods   That   Will   Ward   Off   Scarlet
Fever and Diphtheria.
Since Dr. Frederick A. Kraft, the
Socialist health commissioner of Milwaukee, made his recent announcement Ihat eating onions and olive oil
ls a preventive of scarlet fever and
diphtheria be hns been testing tbe
merits of his theory so successfully
thut tbe oil and onion cure is attracting widespread attention among medical men.
Health Commissioner Kraft has Investigated every recent case of scarlet
fever and diphtheria that be could
reach, and be has found that ln no
family where a case of either disease
broke out were onions or olive oil
used. He calls attention to tbe fact
that districts where onions nre largely
HRed are free of scarlet fever and
diphtheria. Consequently he urged people everywhere to overcome whatever
dislike they may have to tbe much ina-
Iipned onion and to eat lt freely. Vou
ean slice lt and boil It in olive oil.
Tou can eat It raw with a little olive
oil poured over it. Tbe addition of
olive oil he considers Important, and
tbe best way of all Is to eat a raw
onion with oil at night immediately
before retiring.

Recent regulations bearing cn the

Henceforward, officers, whether on
active service or half pay, wlll not j
be allowed to marry till they have
reached the age of 25 and have ob- j
tained the sanction of the King. The
bride will no longer be required to
bring a specific dot, but she will, of
course, have to give satisfactory evidence as to her social fitness for the
position of an officer's wife. It will
be remembered that the "dot regle-
mentaire" was abolished some years
ago in the French army by General
Andre, other social requirements, of
course, remaining as before.
