Many Theories Offered But
No Solution.
Each Department Thinks a Different
Think, But None Seem to Get
the Right Idea.
Three 8old In Last Ten Days Through
Agency oi Messrs. Curtis &
Conjectures and rumors are rife
since the story published ln the News
on Monday morning has become common knowledge, aa to the exact position of the pollce in connection witli
the robbery of the Bank of Montreal.
There are at least three distinct
factions which may be equally denoted as police in this matter, if not
more���but at least there are three
principals. These are, first, the
police of New Westminster; second,
the police of Vancouver, snd third,
the detective agencies which have
been called ln by the bank, or which
have butted ln of their own accord
seeking the great reward which has
been ottered.
Since the story published In the
Dally News about tbe lad who fount
the pile of notes under Oe Carnarvon
street bridge and subsequently handed them over to his newspaper-Belling
pal, each of these bodies, if they will
talk at all, has a different story to
tell or a different excuse to make.
The New Westminster police who
have been reticent from the first,
have nothing to say except that they
knew it all along. And this Is probably perfectly true. They In the
ordinary course of events were bound
to know the truth flrst, for as soon
'as Bezoyk was arrested the chief of
the Royat Ctty claimed him from the
police of Vancouver, and brought him
to this city. He did this so quickly
that the Vancouver police had no
chance of questioning the man. So
that all the prisoner ever told was
probably tol:l to Chief Bradshaw.
The Vancouver police in discussing
the story will only say, more or less
frankly, that they do not believe the
story. They are convinced up to the
present that Bezoyk had more connection with the big steal than would
sem probable. They base these c'on-
Itlons on the statements which they
ge Dexoyk. made to them of his
free wlll during the short time
he wns under their surveillance.
|ut sufficient unto the day U the
Jwledge thereof. It is a remark-
Me fact thnt the moment the Van
Peouver police arrived here with their
prisoner, who wns to show them fhe
hiding place of the loot, and discovered that the Fourth street flnd had
been mai'n they gave up the game
nnd handed over the man to Bradshaw. Bezoyk waB . about to take
them to the cache below the Carnarvon street bridge as a matter of fact,
but thev did not know that and
Bezovk said nothing���probably because he could not sreak very good
English and the Vancouver police arrived at a cul do sac, in their aston
Ahern, of the Plnkertons, has never
said anything and moreover he probably never will unless he makes a
very good capture. After it is all over
if it ever is, he may be Induced to
tell the story, that is if he has any
other connection with it than he has
at present.
The upset, when it Vas.' fonnfl that
Bezovk was merely a so# of petty
thief who had stolen front a boy the
loot that the latter had discovered,
was wholesale. Each body that was
connected with the affair In an off!
cial capacity was boulverse, because
all had banked on Be?ovk. AS a mat
ter of fact they are all as far olf an
ever, according to what they wlll
give out. However.-it" U' rumored
that, n man hns been shadowed f:r
Borne time, and, according to somo
opinions, there nre two other men
who ought to be shadowed a'so.
Three hotels, two in the city, and
one in Vancouver, have been sold by
Messrs. Curtis & Dorgan, of New
Westminster, within the past ten
days. The Cosmopolitan hotel was
sold to Bennett & Brldgman for $20,-
000. The Merchants hotel was sold
through the same flrm to D. Bray.
The figure In this case ls not given.
The Crown hotel, Cordova street

for $41,000. In this case the transfer wss from Mr. Graff to Mr. Man-

of Office.
Mexico City, Nov. 7.���Officially the
revolutionary period of Mexico was
closed today when Francisco 1. Ma-
ero took the oath ot president and
placed across his breast the trl-color
insignia of the chief executive.
This afternoon the oath wag administered to the eight members of his

I.eon De La Barra. who has governed
the country as provisional president
since the day General Diaz left the
capital for Europe, boarded a special train for Vera Cruz, whence he
too wlll sail across the Atlantic, but
on a diplomatic mission.
A number c* ^diplomats, including

Peking, Nov. 7.���The foreign legations here believe that the end of the
Mancbu dynasty ls In sl^it. There
seems to be no hope of saving even
a nominal throne. The northern
provinces are all declaring for a republic. There are indications tonight
that this city will be surrounded before many days are over by the
Chinese soldiers. Where the court
wlll Uke refuge ls a question. It is
feured that the assassination of General Wu Lu Chang will lead to a revolt of the sixth division and that
the court may go to Chsng Kiang
Kau. 12B miles north of the city.
The troops guarding tbe town are
expected to dynamite the tunnel after
the passing of the royal train.
The American soldiers sent messages with skyrockets to the outlying
mission compounds tonight. The legations have advise! all Americans
to come into quarters or to seek a
place of safety. A concerted attack
on the foreigners ls not feared, but
there are many Inside tue walls who
are opposed to foreigners.

But Sir Wilfrid decided to refer the

In these words, Sir William Mackenzie, president of tbe Canadian
Northern railway, assured Premier
McBride of the rapidity with which
Canadian Northern plans are being
carried out. A few hou s spent In
Chicago by the premier and Mr. Bow
ser were prolific of railway callers.
Besides Sir William, there were Mr.
Tait of the Grand Trunk, and L. C.
Gllman, the Great Northern's able
lawyer railroader. Naturally all had
something to say.
Sir William rode to Toronto with
the Westerners and they chatted so
much about the work ln British Columbia that Messrs. McBride and
Bowser both agreed, when they returned some In two weeks, to make
a special survey of the work going
ahead In the Fraser Canyon. Sir
William will be at the coast within a
month to direct some important improvements at Port Mann. Along the
Fraser River work is being rushed on
practically every mile of the grade.
Hundreds of men 'are at work. Passengers on (Canadian Paciflc trains

have a fine view of the rock and tunnel work now going on. Premier McBride added:
"Sir William tells me that work ls
proceeding just as rapidly on the
North Thompson above Kamloops as
on the Fraser. What a wonderful
line it will be. Their heaviest grad?
will be four-tenths of one per cent.
Over that an engine will be able to

sensation was caused at the city

Building Inspector Jarrett, during a
discussion on the Orpheum theatre
question, broadly hinted that under
hand methods were be!ng employed
to secure an extension of the time
which the city claims the lessees
were given to use their present quarters. ,1 '
Alderman'Kirkpatrick asked that a
clause jn the building committee's report advising the flnanc? committee
not to renew the license for the
Orpheum theatre be cut out.
Alderman Rogers strehuous'y opposed the elimination suggested, con'
tending that the building was not safa
from a fire standpoint. He asserted
that the sprinklers which have been
referred to as an adequate protection
in case of flre had not been supplied
with water for that eventuality. This,-
he alleged, showed a breach ot faith
on the part of the proprietors of the
building, which was quits Inexcusable. Despite the denials which had
been made in regard to the agreement
which the city had made, he contended that the third party must have
been cognisant of the agreement
made with ihe city nearly five years

"The English Royal Commission on
Human and Animal Tuberculosis has
done more toward reducing the
causes of the disease and the consequent saving of human lives than any
other influence in the world today."
said Mr. Nathan Straus, the American financier and philanthropist, to,
one of our representatives yesterday.
Mr. Straus has just returned to London after attending the International
Tuberculosis Congress ln Berlin, and
sails today, with Mrs. Straus, for the
United States. As the founder of the
rapidly growing movement for the
pasteurization of milk, Mr. Straus had
much lo say on this subject, which
chiefly claimed the attention of the
recent congress of tuberculosis experts ln Berlin.
"It was the final conclusion of this
congress," said Mr. Straus, "that
practically all cases of tuberculosis
can be traced back to lmpude milk
as an origin. The decision was influenced largely by the report of the
English Royal Commission, which
has been investigating the subject of
tuberculosis diseases and their causes
for many years. As a result of the
health regulations formulated by tbe
commission, the death rate from consumption has been greatly reduced In
England. Much still remains to be
done by the. people themselves, however. In the first place, Englishmen
don't house themselves properly. In
architecture and luxurious furnishing, perhaps, their homes, hotels and
public buildings are ell that could be
desired. But their rooms are
draughty and imperfectly heated. A
single fireplace Is expected to heat a
large room, with the result that one
side ls warm, while the other Is cold.
This I believe to be the cause of the
Incessant coughing that one bears
everywhere at this time of the year.
You don't eat properly, either, more
particularly in hotel and restaurant
life, where your dinners are served
cold and your wine too warm lo be
"At tbe samei time. I am very fond
of England, especially London, and I
am always glad to return here after a
visit to the continent.    English people are genuine  and  friends   worth
having, once you penetrate their cuirass and reserve. They are good business men, too, and by no means lacking ln those hustling qualities which
Americans have so long been credited
with   monopolizing.      I   have   found
quite as much enterprise manifested
here as anywhere else ln the world,
not even  excepting Germany.      Tbe
business methods of the latter country may Involve longer hours of labor
and a certain  plodding thoroughness
that is somewhat Irksome to the Englishman, but in efficiency  and enterprise  there   Ib  no   noticeable   difference.     London   ls   a   wonderful   city
and  an  unusually healthy one, but I
hop�� soon to see nn organized movement started here for the comnul3ory
pasteurization    and   classification   of
all  milk  supplies,  under government
control,   as   a  safeguard  against   the
chief cause  of  a  great  city's   death
rate.    The Royal Commission on Tuberculosis  has  already  derlared  that
tuberculosis  in  cows doeB  cause  the
disease  in   human  beings   the Infection   being  transmited   in   dairy   products.   The commission has also verified the earlier findings of the experts
of the American department of agriculture that more than one-quarter of
all  children  under flve years of age
who  show symptoms of  tuberculosis
owe their condition to milk from diseased cows.
"This report of the commission ls
the flrst step, and I am sure the logical English mind wiU be quick to
grasp the necessity for active measures of prevention. The efforts of
the world's great scientists to find
a cure for mankind's greatest enemy, tuberculosis, cannot be too highly commended. At the same time, the
removal and prevention of the cause
would be Infinitely more beneficial
to humanity. Pasteurization Is rap-
Idly gaining ground as the most effective measure of prevention. Raw
milk Is apt to be dangerouB. Milk that
Ib not certified or guaranteed as
fresh, pure and clean, should be heated to at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit
for at least twenty minutes. This, ln
essence, constitutes pasteurization,
and It ls bo simple that Its compulsory practice should not be difficult
to Introduce, especially as it does not
Injure the quality of the milk or dim-
Ish its nutritive value, while any nation will be trebly blessed which
promotes measures to prevent the
stilling of the voices of its babies in
death."���London Standard.

Keenness and Delicacy Depend   Upon
How Much It Is Used.
The senses are the highways by
means of which there is a connection
between the things that const! ute the
outer world and tiie Inner consciousness that we call self. Could we not
see, hear, smell, taste, or touch, we
would be lower In rank than an oyster, as even an oyster has most of
these senses. Of all the senses, the
sense of touch, of which, Democrltus
pointed out long ago, all the senses
are modifications. We flnd It widely
distributed throughout the animal
kingdom from the Jellyfish up to man
and located ln wonderfully diverse
forms, such as hairs, antennae, delicate tubes, cones, knobs, and membranes.
Like all the other senses, its keenness and delicacy depend upon how
much lt Is used. A vulture, for example, hsa five times the smelling
power of a turkey, simply from thc
fact that the vulture would starve if
It could not detect the odor of its
food miles away, while a turkey dees
not depend upon its olfactory powers
for a livelihood. Swine have exceedingly well developed and complicated
smelling apparatus.    Flesh-cat'.ng ani
mals, as a rule, have more highly organized olfactory organs than those
that subsist upon planta. An elephant has small and contracted nasal
parts, but lt makes up tor this, ln a
degree at least, ln having the longest nose ln tbe world, the nerves extending to the nostril at tbe very tip
of the proboscis or trunk. Curiously
enough, lt ls quite probable. that the
sense of smell Is entirely lacking in
the largest animals that live or ever
did live���the whales. Only the whalebone whale has olfactory organs. The
smelling apparatus of a bear Is exceedingly complicated. The portion,
of its skull given over to that function and known as the turbinated
bones, are so folded and divided that
they look like a section of a honey-1
comb. No wonder the polar bear has
been known to scent a ship at the dis-1
tance of seven miles. The effect of
certain smells such as catnip and valerian upon cats, ig well known producing a condition that ls practically
intoxication.���Popular Mechanics.

Thought Stone   Had  Power to
vey  Second   Sight  to  Thosa
der Influence.
The Greeks be'.leve the opal possessed the power of bestowing second sight to those under Its Influence,
provided they did not use the power
for selfish ends. By Its misuse they
became unlucky ln love, disappointment and misfortune dogging their
footsteps. ,
The theory was started that for occult reasons the opal was unlucky or
that lt brought Ill-luck to Its possessor, and succeeding generations have
Inherited the distrust that waa thus
Thi Idea that opals were unlucky lg
thought by many to be on account of
the unfortunate part Sir Walter Scott
assigned to It ln bis "Anne of Gelr-
steln." But the gem must have appealed to so great a lover of beauty
In animate and Inanimate nature as
Sir Walter, and it must have been
far Indeed from bis thoughts to engender superstition by giving a bad
name to a marvellous example of creative energy.
The opal Is also associated with
misfortunte by Russians of both
sexes, who should they chance to see
an opal among the goods displayed
for purchase wlll buy nothing more
that day, and lt ls a curious fact that
the Japanese, being under the sign
that this stone belongs to. should be
the nation to bring such Ill-luck to
Russians during the dlsartrous war
between these two countries.
The Romans of old loved the opal
so well that they bestowed upon it
the name of "lovely youth." It never
occurred to them that lt was a gem
which carried Ill-luck to Its possessor.
Lucky Indeed did that Roman esteem
himself who wag th�� owner of an
opal that filled his neighbor with en-
In the Middle ages ther�� were not
wanting men who shared the Ro-
mans' weakness, for opals dl.l not
lose their popularity as time went
on. Each century brought Its own
Joys and sorrows, luck and Ill-luck to
the human race , and each age
brought Its fashions In Jewelry as ln
clothing, but the opal remain d high
In favor and entered largely into the I results'
adornment of hoth sexes. Its frangi-
blllty wus well known, but this was
Regarded not as a failing so much as
a special claim on the care of all
who handled It.
Alone among jewels the opal defies the Ingenuity cf the Imitator, lt
owes Its charm not eo much to Its
own Intrinsic merits as to the splendor of the rays of light that lt reflects. It Is the chameleon of stones.
Pliny, writing 1819 years ago, remarked that it "displays at once the
piercing lire of carbuncles, the purple brilliancy of amethysts and the
sea green of emeralds, the whole
blended together and refulgent with
a brightness that ts quite Incredible."
Unlike other gemsl the opal is a
stone with a temper. The diamond
rises superior to climate, as aiBo does
the ruby, the emerald and the sap
phlre. but the opal has an organization so delicate that It loses color
and becomes dull under the Influence
of moisture. But when warmed by the
rays of the sun or even by the temperature of the hand lt recovers its
goo I humor, resumes Its exquisite
brilliancy. Prejudice dies hard, but
with regard to the opal, It ls on the
wane, and the day Is probably nat
distant when Ihe gem wlll not longer
be regarded with superstition.���Pall

To readers unacquainted with conditions of life as found at the outset
ln the great lone lands all this may
savor of a "traveler's tale." But to
realize how Important u factor in
life's affairs was "the menace of the
pig," one has only to study the arch-,
Ives of early colonial days.
If reports may be credited, a Japanese scientist has discovered a new
and effective treatment for leprosy,
the basis of which Is application of
"tetrod toxin," a substance extracted from the poisonous elements of
the globe flsh, known In Japan as
fugu. The scientist referred to is
Dr. Tahara, president of the Tokyo
Hygienic laboratory.
Dr. Tahara'i special studies In this
direction date from 20 years ago, after his return from Europe. He devoted himself more particularly to the
Investigation of the poison obtained
ln the globe flsh. After much labor he
succeeded In extracting the to son
element from the flsh, and trom this
prepared a pure white, tasteless snd
odorless powder, soluble In water,
which he named tetrod toxin. Tests
showed that four milligrams of powder constituted a fatal dose ln the
case ot rabbits, and lt was estimated
that 200 milligrams would put a man
to death. This discovery was made
public 17 years ago, but Dr. Tahara
continued his studies, and ln 1909
published a further report.
Dr. Tahara represented Japan at
the Brussels Hygienic conference last
year, and on that occasion submitted
a report on his discovery of the toxin
which attracted a good deal of attention ln the scientific world. A German chemical manufacturing company subjected tbe toxin to a series
of tests, whence lt was concluded
that lt was too poisonous to be employed for medical purposes. Little
more was heard about the toxin until
recently, when It was applied to the
treatment of leprosy by Messrs. Yos-
hlkawa and Yamazakl, young medical

school,  with, lt  Is claimed, brilliant

As every one knows, writes D. W.
O. Fagnn In the November Wide
World Magazine, the pig can cla'm no
place In the indigenous fauna of New
Zealand. It was the famous Capt.
Cook who first introduced the animal
to thc southern seas, in the latter
part of the eighteenth century he
made a present to his Maori friends
of the first two rails of breed'ng
porkers from Kngland, *itt> instructions to turn them loose In ne empty
lanl to Increase and multiply-
The Injunction was c;lavcd to the
letter hy n)l parties. They were a
prolific family, that o'atly qutrtetta.
. Wlt'i a feeundltv second only to that
of the rabbits that came later, they
soon pot beyond the control of the
few coast-dwelling Maorlru, who were
too busy killing each other with the
recently imported muskets to look
after the pigs.
Breaking away, the rlss migrated
inland to found colonies on their own
account and It was not long, with an
abunlant food su^ly, before thev
filled the wide spaces of the empty
land with vast droves and herds that
may almost be sal.I to have disputed
possession with the first white settlers.
It was. perhaps, In irony that the
dlsqusted early immigrants nicknamed the wild pigs "Captain Cooks"
in honor of the great circumnavigator. The name stuck, till, at tbe
present day, the generic term is used
to include all of the wild tribe in
both Islands, from North Cape ln the
The numbers, of the droves were
swelled, later by recruits from other
sources. Cant, Cook was followed by
more enthusiasts. A sort of mania
for pig acclimatization seems to have
possessed the souls of early voyagers.
Shipment after shlmnent of breeding
porkers were let loose on the land-
scare in the early years of last een-
turv by whaling skippers from England and America.
There was sport galore, and unlimited rork for the hunting in those
times. But. on turning to the sterner
duties of life, the early Immigrants
soon found the pigs a force to be
reckoned with. Crbps and flocks
alike suffered. With the coming of
the'sheep the pigs quickly developed
��� taste for fresh mutton   and helped
It appears that a few months previously a young leper patient entered
the Osaka hospital where these two
young students were on duty, an.l
asked to be treated with the globe
flsh poison, which, be said, he had
heard was efficacious In the cure of
this disease. Ke was fully aware of
the danger Involved, but was willing
to run the risk, nnd, as a matter of
fact, found himself greatly relieved
by the treatment.
The young students took care'ul
note of the case and resolved to pursue their inquiries with a view to the
systematic application of the tetrod
toxin to the cure of leprosy.
A quantity of the medicine was prepared In .tonfo mity with Dr. Ta-
hara's report anJ after this had been
successfully tested on animals the
two young men began to treat human
patients, under the guidance or Dr.
Sakurane. In one Instance the toxin
was administered to eight patients
suffering from various forms of ner-
���vous leprosy. The quantity applied
was t'.Ol- gramme, which was In
Jected subcutaneously In fhe to
eleven portions. So effective was
this treatment that after flve injections a patient who had been suffering intense pain for soven months experienced Instant Tellef and ^vas
able to sleep at night, and in other
ieiases marked improvement In the
symptoms was recorded. The toxin
was further applied to patients suffering from nervous ailments, and
again with  satisfactory  results.
lt Is as yet too soon to say that the
toxin will completely cure leprosy,
but it is at least certain that it can
be employed on human beings without fatal effect and as an auxiliary
agent. Investigations are being continued wilh official co-operation of
Dr. Kobayashl, director of the hygienic bureau of the bome office, who
has Issued to the Tokyo and other
leper asylums Ins'ructions to cenduct
experiments ia the new treatment,
and Email auantttlies of "fhe tb'ln have

The results of these evrerlments will

In writing of the almost ludicrous
proceedings ln the selection of a ]n*f-
in California to try the McNam'ftras,
The Evening Journal says:
For several weeks the preliminaries of the trial of the McNamara
brothers, charged with dynamlUng a
California newspaper office, have
been proceeding In the United States
courts. And now the assurance is
given thnt, with continual court sessions, in all probability a trial jury
will have been selected by the first
of next year.
There Is Something farcical about
a system of Justice which requires
over three months to select a Jury.
The expense of such system must be
enormous, and were the accused dependant upon their own resources for
payment of the defence lawyers their
money���owing to these delays-
would long since have been exhausted.
In the United States almost jAjfiex-
cuse ls accepted as sufficient'W excuse a citizen from peityjriptyg his
jury duty. As a result, after eliminating the men who do nof want to be
on the Jury, the men whj>. have read
and formed opinions on lhe case���
the most intelligent of the rbmain
ing candidates���and various other
citizens who disbelieve in capital
punishment, the resultant Jury Is apt
to be largely composed of notoriety-
seekers, or mental imbeciles. Such
mode of selection bars all men of substance, all successful men; for while
the average business man might sacrifice a Peek's time for Jury, duty,
he certainly would not tiitil-rff$ chance
of sitting dally for Ihfee ;'��itrfdnths,
while the remainder of hjs colleagues
were being selected.
Few   Canadian   or   British    juries
have required more than a couple of
���days   for   their  complete   selection.
Such is probably due to the fact that

in the Y. M. C. A., and has Become. Most  Popula*-.
Basketball was invente 1 in the winter of 1891-92, probably in December,
1891, by Dr. Jas. Nalsmith, a teacher
in the Young Men's Christian Association training school at Springfield,
Dr. Nalsmith Is a Canadian by
birth and the game which has been
so thoroughly adopted throughout
Canada and America is a production
of Canadian talent.
At this time there was a class of
men preparing for the general secretaryship of the Young Men's Christian Association. The question then
arose: Is our work the right kind to
interest men? About this time there
was a protest against the introduction of Swedish educational gymnastics to take the place of children's-recess in the public schools..
Question of  Games.
This led to a question of games. At
a meeting of the physical department,
held In pr. Gulick's house, the question, was brought up as to' what con-
stltued a. good game and It was
agreed that, so far as the development of right manhood was concerned, lacrosse- was the ideal game:'   .
Just previous to this meeting,, in a
class In psychology,, taught by Dr. Gu-
lick of the physical department, there
had been a discussion on invention
and Dr. Gullck had spoken of the
conditions he had found necessary to
observe In invention. At this meeting Dr. Nalsmith told Dr. Gullck he
would try to Invent a game* which
would be satisfactory. The latter
turned the dissatisfied elass over to
Dr. Nalsmith, and, to use his own
words, said he was left with a white
elephant on his hands.
Tried All Games.
I tried all the games that seemed to
offer any hope, and-studied each one,
but kept the Idea ot lacrosse always
In mind. Then It occurred to me tbat
tbe only way was to get one that
would All the requirements as nearly
as possible.
The conditions to be met with by
the game were:
It should be such that could be
played on any kind of ground.
It should be such that could be
played by a large number of men at
It should exercise a man all round.
It should be so attractive that men
would desire to play lt for Its own
It should have little or none of the
reputed roughness of Rugby.
It should be easy to learn.
It should be scientific enough to be
Interesting to old players. I
All  Ball  Necessary. |
That there should be a ball of some
kind was the flrat point settled, because by thla means tbe game could
be made scientific and interesting,
bringing the element of physical judgment and yet be free from the personal contact which is often the
cause of roughness. A large bail was
used so that tt could be used by1 the,
hands and yet not be hidden, and be
ars new aad entirely different from ordinary preparations. They accomplish

sides lt required nO practising with
stick or bat. The next question was
how to prevent roughness. In order
to eliminate this feature tbe person
holding the ball was not allowed to
hug It or hold it with any part of
himself except the hands, furthermore, the person holding the ball was
not allowed to run with it from the
place where he caught lt, thus the
necessity of tackling was done away
with. Again, as in many Instances a
person might be hitting at the ball
and mlss It, striking bis Opponent,
the players were forbidden' to use
their lists in striking the ball. In
all games where the goals are vertical, a great deal of swift passing or
throwing thst ln tbe gymnasium is
likely to damage the apparatus and
even to tbe players, made it necessary
to obviate this and the goals were
placed horizontally at such a height
that a player could not cover it and
prevent the entrance of the ball. The
first goals were simply a couple of
peach baskets hung at each end of
the gymnasium and from this the
game takes its name. Basketball was
thus made in tbe office and was a direct adaptation of certain means to
accomplish certain ends. Tbe rules
were formulated and hung up in the
gymnasium so that the placers
would know what to do.
"HumnhI   A   New  Game."
The flrst words were not very encouraging. One of the class made the
remark, "Humph, a new game." I
asked the boys to try it once for me.
They started and after the ball was
first thrown up there was no need of
further coaxing."
From this story of the origin of the
game it can be seen that basketball
was not a game intended merely for
amusement, but was an. attempted solution of a problem which was pressing on physical directors. Many of
the games played outdoors were unsuitable for indoors and consequently
when the. season closed the game,
with all the benefits to be derived
therefrom, was dropped.
The first publlc presentation of the
game was ih tbe "Triangle,? the organ of the training school. Jan. 15.
1892. The original thirteen nfles'df
the game also appear In ths' issue.,
.Since that day the game bas spread
from Nova Scotia to California and
is played In almost every college In
Canada and the United States.

-When Canadians can honestly differ as to the cause or causes that led
to the downfall ot the Laurier Gov'-'
ernment, how    !�� u possible to. read
the  myriad-mind   of  China   and   declare what is the chief cause of the
present unrest?    Some one once said
that  hunger  was  at  the   bottom   of
every  revolution,  and   lt is   certain
ihat  hunser  stalks  abroad  ln  China
toilay, and most terribly In those provinces  where the  revolt   is   making
greatest headway.    Tens of millions
of  Chinamen  are   Insufficiently   fed,
nnd, naturally, all hungry men are in
favor of a  change   of   government.
Hut hunger is the rule and not the ex-
cept ion among those Chinese who are
now Buffering from It. and, thereto e,
it can hardly be accepted as the Immediate caure of the present revolution.   Tlte "awakening of China" Is a
vague phrase, and yet it seems to explain the present situation better than
any equally brief formula.    We have
been talking for ten yeais or more���
ever since thc  Hoxer rising���of this
awakening,  and  attributing  to lt all
the changes that have l>e<n.,cbserved
In the empire ln  that time,  but we
may   not have  realized   that   among
300,00SOAO people tin awakening is a
gradual process, and might well consume ten years or even twenty years.
Lessons of the Rising.
Even now, wh( n the awakening has
ceeied  to  the   point   where   mil-
are ready to thiow off the old
govern ng order,  it cannot be called
conn lete. and whether the present revolt succeeds or fails lt will cont;n;e,
for the Ktahrgy and fatalisni of   cen-
tuil'.'S are not shaken oft in one m in's
lift time.    There  may  bo  many  convulsions   like   this   befcre   China    is
really  awake:   the  conv'u3lons   maybe necessary.      Certainly  the  Boxer
rising did  more  for China than  any
other single event in her modern history, even though It were a reaction.
Befoie the rising the Chinese people
were  unJer  several   illusions   about
the rest of the world.   They thought
that  all  foreigners   were   alike.   Just
as most of us are ln the habit of attributing common qualities to all Chinese,   lt was not until after the rising, and after the missionary efforts
that were put forth by the Western
powers, that the Chinese people began  to   realize   that   all   foreigners
were not brothers.   For tbe time they
understood something about independence and national personal'?.   Several costly experiences that they have
had in the past ten years have he p-
ed the lesson.
The Dynasty Condemned.
Their     exploitation     by    various
groups of foreign capitalists and the
appropriation of territory by foreign
powers have assisted the   awakening
process, for  we  must  bear  in  mind
that China, heknighted as she    is in
many ways, is not without her newspapers, some cf tl.em having a circulation that would make our great.st
newspapers   turn   green   with   envy.
One   of   these   journals,  printed   in
Shanghai, bears this mot'.o to Its millions of readers:    "Vou Uke anything
you  want���anl  get  away witli  it���if
you have the big  ships and the big
guns."   Side  by  side  with  the realization that China had lost much from
the  lowers  guv,-   up  the  realization
From ths Lijht Erected at Alexandra
Erected by Ptolemy to the Great
Tower ol the Eddystone Rock It s
Far Cry and Many Devices Have
Been Added to the Mechanism-
Tims Fleshes.
Th^ first lighthouse on record is said
to have been erected at Alexandria in
Egypt by Ptolemy l'h:ladeipiius nearly
three centuries before the birth o>
Christ. It was said to have been 500
leet high, while tte light, consisting
in all probability of a coul or wood fin
in an open in'...in oa trie summit ot
the tower, i.s supposed to have been
visible 42 miles out i* sea.
In the United Kingdom, towards the
end of the fourteenth century, tne
lighting of the coast wus left in the
hands of various religious orders, who
established and kept up lights at the:!
own expense, and thn*. did their best
to warn mnnner* of tne dangers which
lurked round about their monasteries
or dwellings. The lights at this time
usually consisted of a wood or coal
flre burnt in an open brasier situated
on a church tower, although we occasionally read of lights being exhibited in windows to guide ships in from
seaward. The dissolution of the monasteries in the reign of Henry VIII.,
doing away as it did with the men
who gratuitously tended these coast
lights as a sacred duty, abolished the
lights also at one* blow, and it was not
until several years later that the first
of thc regular coast lights were instituted.
At this tim? it was customary for
private people to erect lighthouses at
their own expens��, in return ior which
they wer-1 allowc' to levy a toll on all
passing vessels. The license to do this
was granted by me King, but the'
Trinity House, a guild or fraternity ol
sailors who undertook to look after
th? interests of all those connected
with shipping, hud developed into a
rich and powerful organiration, holding important charters which regulated the general management of navigation. 'Ihey regarded the erection of
these private lighthouses ne a usurpation o: ttic-ir right*, for they were re-
Sponsible for the buoyage ol the channels, and alleged that they had the
Bole riy'.'.t of erecting lighthouses. Tri-i
ity House, therefore, opoosed all
schemes for the building of lighthouses by private persons. But in
spite oi this hostility, lighthouses were
erected at many noints on the coast.
Tlie light consisted of an open heartli
At the summit of the tower, while the
curious davit and pulley on tiie right-
l.ai::l side were use for hoisting up
the  necessary fuel.

ous utility of the ligl.ts, were bitterly
opposed to th? ni'asure, and charac-
ti -:���/.������"{ the H?h!'''OU����s as "usele-s,'
"dmigsrous," and a "burthen and hin-

until' about a century later that the

Thev then no longer opposed all measures for the establishment of lights.

It i.s as old as thc occupation itself.
The Manchu Conquest.
Unlike the Normans wben they
conquered England, says the M ill
and Empire, the Manchus did net
bring a new culture to China. They
came as soldiers, and remain today
the most ignorant of its population,
even if they are its aristocrats. Unlike the Normans, too. they did not
intermarry with the Chinese until the
past few years, there being a law
against it. Therefore, the two races
maintained all their essential differences, and the cleavage between
them was quite as distinct as thit between Mohammedans and Hindus in
India. The Manchus were not amenable to Chinese laws, but to special
laws of their own. They constitn'el
the garrisons of the country until a
few years ago, and seemed to realize

As 1 have said above, the principal
illuminants used in ancient lighthouses were coal or wood fires in an
Open hear:!:, but towards the end oi
the 17th century it occurred to some
people to enclose the fire in a lantern
with a funnel or chimney at the top.
This saved the iue!, but the efficiency
of the lights suffered, for it was no
longer fanned by the sea breezes, and
needed the frequent u.=e of the bellows
to keep it alight. There were many
complaints about the poorness of the
lights, and the lanterns were subsequently removed, but coal or wood
fires remained in us-- till 1P22.
It wai towards the middle of the
eighteenth century that schemes for
distinguishing one light from another

it would appear that the Chinese
court delayed too long to make these
recognitions to the growing anti-
dynastic sentiments rf the Chinese.
Another factor is the Chinese student. To the number of nearly 100,-
000 "n the past ten >eurs young Chinese have studied at various European and American schools and colleges, and, naturally, when every one
of them reached home he was full
of plans fer reform, hiving drunk of
the spi ing of western democracy.
Even though they did nol agree in
detail as to the cure that was necessary for their country, they were
unanimous that the getting rid of the
present dynasty was the flrst step.
With these various agencies understood, the reason for tlie icvolu ion
recomes clear.

Animals have been tried and condemned for other crimes than Sabbath breakinc. Chassenee, the eminent French jurist, defended certain
rats  accused   of  destroying   a  barley

These methods, combined w:t.h the
erapl lyment of white, red, and gr.vn
lights provided many diff"rent varieties of lights, anri thus form a ready
means of distinguishing one from the
other, as no two lights on the British
coast are exactly t.he same.
The present Bell Kock Lighthouse
is situated off Arbroath, and this is
the place, it will b�� remembered, that
has been immortalized in the poem of
"Sir Ralph the Rover," where���
"The good old Abbot of Aberhrothock
Had placed that bell on the Inchcape
On a buoy, in the storm, it floated and
swung, ,
And over the waves its warning run^."
The first time h lighthouse was erected on an isolated rock was in the case
of the first Eddystone Lighthouse completed by Winstanley in 1G93, where
tallow candles were used as an illum-
inant. The tower was polygonal in
form, while the. useless ornamentatio
above offered great resistance to th
wind. This lighthouse, howevpr, stood
till 1703, when it was knocked down by

Irenh as when he started.
This vulture has been watched by
ihe hour through powerful telescopes,
tnd nev?r onae spen to give so much
ts n sinele flap with his wings.
Man has been studying b'rd-fltght
lor generations past. He has done
his best to imitate it, he haa gone
leep into itg problems, and has put
forward all k'.nds of ingenious
theories. And at the end of it all.
?ven now that he himself is beginning to master the air by means of
�� rigid screw-driven plane, he ha*
lo confpss that the problem nf soaring flight is well-nigh insoluble.
For a very long time the common
explanation of soar ng flight was
Ihat-soaring birds, like the vulture,
took advantage of air currents. It
is a fact that some birds, like the
ilbatross). need a breeze to enable
Ihem to sail throueh the air; but
there are others, such as the frigate,
3r man-of-war bird, which can rise
in the culm and float all day without
�� motion of their broad pirvons.
Tha wings of the frigate-bird have
an expanse of ten to twelve feet, and
it can fly at any pace up to a hundred nvles an hour, and can remain
for a week on the wing without once
The albatross of the Southern Hemisphere has been known to follow a
sailing ship for a fortn'ght at a time,
spparently never resting. Its wing
expanse is greater even than that of
the condor, one bird that was shot off
the Cape of Good Hope measuring
seventeen and a half leet from wing-
tip to wing-tip.
From   these   figures    it   might   be
eathered  that   the   larger   the wing
expanse   of  any  particular  bird   the';
greater its powers of flight.
Yet here we 'trike another snag.
Thc powers of flight in various birds
are not by any means proportionate
to the bearing surface of their wings.
The stork, for instance, can fly
magnificently. On its annual migration it rovers two to three thousand
miles, and will cross the Mediterranean with the greatest ease. Now,
the stork weighs e'ght times as much
a.l a pigeon, yet in proportion to its
weieht has only half as much wing
But a b:rd of prey must be able to
do much more than support its own
weight in the sir. It ha? to lift (ts
kill" from the ground and rarry :t
perhaps many miles up into the
What such a I) rd ia capable of
may be realized when it Is said that
an eagle weighing ubout eight nounds
has been seen to pick up ancl carry
ofl a young p:g weiching more than
double as much as itself. And there

with their cloth��s, over 14 pounds.
Ii man could build nn aeroplane to
match    the    eacle.    that    aeronlane
would  only  weigh,    engine   and   all,
about   eighty pounds,   and   its   pilot
could carry it on his ba?k.   It would
have to  be able to rise with  inly  a
few feet run,  to  sail   -vith  safety   in
gale, and   to remain   afloat lor

Well   Done,  Wilkinson.
Who made'the first smoothing-iron,
ona of the cointnoneat articles of
domestic use?
It was John Wilkineon. who went
into the Furness district from Cumberland somewhere about the year
1788, and who eventually became
known as the father of the iron trade
of South Staffordshire. Wilkinson
also invented the first box-iron, and
made the bottoms of them smooth
by means oi a Urge grindstone.
But making irons was the least nl
John Wilkinson's triumphs. He
made the first iron ship. It was a
barge of forty tons, snd was used on
the, Severn for years. He also made
the first iron canal-boat.
He was. moreover, the inventor of
boring cannon and cylinders from
the centre, and by so doing he enabled the great James Watt to make
smooth and perfect the nct:on ol his
pistons and of his pumping and
other engines.
Wilkinson said thnt 9W> persons
out of every 1,000 he ��pokc to about
sn iron vessel lor sea or river simply
lunched at him.
Were he and his contemporaries
living to-day, who would havo the
laugh? ^^^^^^^^^���
