Said to Have Been Formed
fay Churchill.
la Result of the Growth of Dominion
Navies and Criticism of Party
London, Nov. 20.���The Right Hon.
Winston Churchill Is credited wltb
having formed a regular naval war
staff at tbe admiralty, though as yet
no official announcement baa been
Tbe new first lord is nothing lf not
ambitious, and one of bis very first
acts baa been to thoroughly analzye
the whole administrative force of the
navy so that, If possible, economic)
can be made where tbey are needed
without ln tbe least imparing the ef
fiency of the fleet. The very word
economy In connection with the navy
is usually used as a rod for the first
lord's back whenever bis opponent
wishes to arouse the apathy of the nation, so that Mr. Churchill had to find
an expedient by which he could practice economy and yet add to the fight
ing value of the force on whicb tbe
whole empire depends.
The creation of tbis staff should
not be one of much difficulty. It will
be something of the nature of an
evolution, for ever since tbe cabinet
committee in 1908 Investigated the
condition of the navy, a naval
council has been in being at the
Colonial Representatives
The navy generally, and more
tlcularly the younger officers,
cordially support the fiist lord in his
decision to create a war staff at the
admiralty. It has become increasingly felt that, such an organization
has become essential in view of the
rapidity with which ths whole international situation is n; t to change,
the Immense power of sudden attack
which- modern naval armaments confer on an enemy, an.l the consequent
need for tfar preparations In time of
peace, and the complications of the
| arrangements for the defence of Hrit I
interests which has ailsen since

with the fleets of the oversea d.-mln
ions, because tliere is at present no
department at the a Imiralty which
expresses the reasoned mind of the
navy on miitteig of naval policy. Tha
four sea lords are already overworked. It will le one of thr- peculiar
functions of the war staff, it may he
presumed, not merely to study the
problems which the sea defences of
the Emi Ire present, but to advise the
daughter navies as they develop. The
aim, no doubt, will be to prevail on
the Dominion governments to establish naval war staffs, and unquestionably arrangements will be made, as In
change of officers, so as to ensure
unity of ideas.
Such a war staff would also be linked with the stalls of lhe admirals in
command of the principal fleets, ensuring that the officers lolling theso

Echoes of the storm were beard at
last night's meeting of tbe city coun
cil, though already tbey had become
distant and subdued, and were only
projected into the meeting last night
as complaints about flooding of cellars.
Questions of some standing came
up, like the relation of the Royal Columbian hospital to the current needs
of the city in the matter of hospital
accommodation, and those questions
were discussed ln some new aspects.
It was Alderman Dodd wbo reported
that the health committee met with
the hospital board yesterday after
noon. He thought the city council
should authorize the city clerk to
write to the several bodies represent
ed on the board of hospital directors,
to see lf a meeting of those bodies
could be arranged for and their views
heard, with regard to the question ol

Seattle, Nov. 20.���Seattle's water

Teheran,   Nov. 20.���Diplomatic   re-i
latons with Russia have ceased.   The I
regent    has   persuaded      Samsatn-Es
Sultaneh. the   premier   who res gned
cn November 13, to form a new cabinet.
Over a week    ago the premier resigned  an.l the natipnal  council,    on
tal. That was the view expressed at
the ineeting in the afternoon, and the
adoption of that view would come
sooner or later. Some means woull
have to be devised whereby the city
Persian ! council would stand behind the hospl
tal board in a financial way. That
would involve a voice in the adminis
tratlon of the affairs of tbe hospital.
Among the .members of the council,
he said, the consideration that prevailed was the necessity of providing
adequate hospital accommodation foi
the city. He moved that the city
clerk be instructed as he had indicated.
A Rift in the Lute.
Alderman  Bryson said    that    after
what had happened at the   meeeting
that  afternoon  he  was disposed    to

McNamara Trial���One Sleeps���
Some Sick.
Los Angeles, Nov. 20.���Talesmen
popped ln and out of the Jury box ln
the McNamara murder trial today,
making a scene of some activity, but
small progress. The activity died
down ln the afternoon session under
an extended examination ol M. F.
Mooney, a talesman, and lt became
necessary for a bailiff to awaken one
man who went to sleep in court. V.
F. McBurney, a builder, was passed
as to cause by both sides.
Talesman Mooney was a miner in
Lackawanna county, Pennsylvania, 40
years ago, and he then belonged to a
union. He is an Irish-Catholic, as Is
James B. McNamara. Since leaving
Pennsylvania, Mooney ha3 belonged to

Portland, Ore., Nov. 20.���Investigation into the conduct of Captain
George Winkle, master of the steam

nearly GO passengers narrowly escaped foundering on Peacock Spit at the
mouth of the Columbia river on November 13, was held here to&iy by

Taking the ground that Minister

There has been ^fo confirmation of
the reported killing of missionaries in

Mr. Calhoun if within his knowledge.
The state department, regarding Yuan

Soms weeks ago the department

as to what should be done ia a military way to meet the developments of

The result of the inquiry was not

among the other powers are at all likely to prove authentic.

Suit Just Begun by United States Government Likely to Be Long.
Since it required nearly flve years
for the United States Governmnct to
secure from the Supreme Court the
orders for the dissolution of the
Standard Oil and Tobacco Trusts, and
since It will be another year, probably
before their dissolution is complete,
it is probable that the suits just begun
against the Unl'ed States Steel Corporation will drag on for many ye.irs.
Many things may happen in that time;
there may be oppoitunities for the
suit to be discontinued, for instance,
and holders of United States Steel S3-
curlties have every reason to be reassured when reflecting on the tesult
of the war against ths trusts. The
Sherman law, under which the present prosecution is undertaken, has
been* on the statute books fo.- more
than twenty years and up to date not
a single great combination in restraint cf trade has been crushed.
Two or three have been dissolved.
Seven years a?o the Northern Securities Company was dissolved, but the
control of the Chicago, Burlington and
Quincy Railroad still remains In ih;
custoiy of the Great Northern and t ie
Northern Pacific, which are dominated
by the same interests that the Govern
ment sought to dislodge. Even the
Northern Securities Is still a corpai-
aie entity, with a greally-reduced capital.
Values Increase Despite Suits.
If there was a sharp depression ln
the prices of Uni'ed Sta'es Steel there
Is more than a probability that it was
the public, and not ihe "wicked partners," whom the government is supposed to be pursuing, that sold lhe
shares. It has been Intimated that
the Steel Trust insiders had mere
than an Inkling as to what was about
to happen, and that they fe'zed. the
opportunity to sell at normal prices
great quantities of the stock. When
the announcement was made that the
government had entered suit the stock
fell, and the "Intetests" bought it
bick again. No doubt, ih^y comf-rS
ed themselves with the reflection that
in November, 1906. t'-e day the government brought suit against Standard Oil, that stock sold at 565, and
ihat the day following it scld at 550,
but that it sold at 697 the day rfter
the Supreme Court ordered Its dissolution in May last. Moreover, Tobacco stock advanced from 290 to 500

of three companies. n:im��ly, the Carnegie Company, the Federal Steel
Company, and the National Steel Company. Each of these concerns had Intimate business relation t, amounting
to a praclical affiliation with oth��r
companies Ihat manufactured steel in
lighter and more finished foms. What
precipitated the final amalgamation
was the fact that some of the companies that were handling th* product

Company and the Federal Steel Company seemed to be on the point of becoming competitors instead of custc-'

to make their own iron and Bteel. The

bas done so much to free Russia from
tbe tyranny of the aristocracy. Tolstoy was, aald the speaker, a most remarkable literary man and there waa
no branch of literature not covered by
the great author. Philosopher, poet,
warrior, ascetic and phrophet, Tolstoy
was all these and he could be as
fierce as the Hon robbed of its whelp
and yet as gentle as the lamb. His
religion was humanity, and his creed
the love of all men. The speaker
was thoroughly familiar with his subject and he comprehensively dealt
with what was evidently a favorite
theme. He showed in a very Interesting manner how the Doukhobors are
in some ways the followers of Tolstoy.
They are men, he said, who are in th��
first stages of civilization, freed in a
Iree country, from the yoke of tyranny of Russian system.
Tolstoy's doctrine of socialism waB
extremely practical and brought out
from him the exposition of the noble
sentiment, self-sacrifice to the end.

For twenty-five years���a quarter of a century���I have been trying lo convince the pub*
lie that I have something genuine, something
better than others bave for the cure of stubborn, chronic rheumatism, for torturing kid*
ney backache, for annoying calls to urinate.
But it is hard ts convince people���they try a
few things unsuccessfully and give up nil hope
and refuse to listen to anyone thereafter.
Happily, I am in a potitioa now to demonstrate to sulTeren at my own expense that I
have a medicine that cures these diseases.
I don't ask them to spend any money to find
out; I don't aslc them to believe me, nor even
to take the wort of reliable people, but all I
ask is that they allow me to send them lhe
medicine at my own cost.   That ia surely fair.
To this end I have set aside ten tin usand
dollars, which will be used to compound my
medicine. Much of it is ready now to be
aent out, all of it fresh and standard. There
will be enough for all sufferers, though there
be thousands of them. And anyone who
needs it can get some of it free. Hut in
order that I shall know that you have a disease for which this medicine is intended, I
ask you to send me some of your leading
symptoms. If you have any of the symptoms
in the list printed here you need my medicine
and if you will write me I will gladly send
you a box of it free with full directions for
your use. Look the symptoms over, aee
which symptoms you have, then write me
sbout as follows: "Dear Dr., I notice symptoms number"���here put down the numbers,
give your age, full address, ard send it tome.
My address is Dr. T. Frank Lynott, 831
Franklin Building, Toronto, Can.
The ten thousand dollars I am spending for
the compounding of my medicine is only a
part of the money I am devoting to this
cause, for the package of medicine I send you
will be fully prepaid at my expense. From
any standpoint you view it, YOU incur no
expense or obligation. Just tell others who
you know are suffering who sent you thc
medicine that cured you.
I am promising to give away ten thousand
dollars' worth of medicine, and I will do that;
1 am promising to send, any sufferer who
writes me a box of this medicine and full
directions free of charge, and I will do that.

ask is that you use it yourself ao tbat yoa

Owing to the large number of requests, I
have had ten thousand more copies of my
medical book printed. This book is new and
up to date and contains complete descriptions,
symptoms, causes, effects sna cures of kidney,
bladder and rheumatic diseases. All who write
for the free medicine will be sent a copy
of this grand illustrated medical book���the
largest ever written on these diseases for free
and general distribution.
If you need medicine such as I have, if
you are anxious to be cured and don't want
to spend any money LOOKING for cures,

Merely a Convenient Explanation ef

An assumption that there exist in

they are more often called, "pockets,'1
serves as a convenient explanation oi'

that recently brought the tearless'
Mars to the ground with somewhat!
disastrous consequences. This idea, ii-
it did not originate with Kipliug, at
least gained general acceptance trom'
his story of The Night Mail, in which
it was skillfully exploited, and there
is no doubt that in a way it provides
an explanation ior phenomena often
observed by the passengers of balloons
as well us oi aeroplanes.
The way, however, is much such a
way as that in which the old theory
of miasms from swamps or newly
turned ground explained malaria aud
justified the old (ears of night air. We
know now, of course, that night air is
just as good as day air���which is fortunate, sinae at night we have no other���and wo would also know, ii we
stopped to think, that tiie aerial ocean
is' far less likely Vo have boles, or
pockets, in il than is the ocean oi
water, whioh doesn't have them and
couldn't. What both of these oceans
do have are currents���motions of their
particles in all directions under the
influence of var.ous differences of pressure���and as air is vastly more mobile
than water the efieel of like influences
en it is the production oi greater and
more complex  motions.
The complexity of these movements
is well shown by the erratic flight of a
piece oi paper throwo into the air
trom a high building. It is obviously
subjected to almost as many downward as upward pressures, but there is
not the slightest excuse for supposing
that its fails are into "holes," which
word would imply the pressenee in the
air of spaces approaching more or less
���losely the condition oi vacuity. All
the effects of such a space, so far as
balloons and aeroplanes go, would follow a sudden passing from a horizon,
tal, or ascending, currant to one moving downward. This would require an
instant readjustment oi thc supporting
and propulsive forces at the aviator',

Rare Courage of Or. Franz Mueller In
His Tragic Death.
Heroism hits been defined as 'tba
brilliant triumph of the soul over tbe
flesh"���thut Is to say. over fear���fear
of suffering, of Rick ness. of isolation
and of death. Au Instance of this
dazzling and glorious concent ration of
courage ls given lu Mr. Frederick Rowland Marvlu's book, "Tbe Excursions
of a Book Lover."
Dr. Franz Mueller of Vienna, wbo
fell a victim to the bubonic plague
wben that disease wns first under bacteriological Investigation lu thut city
In 1897. contracted the malady from
bacilli In culture tubes. When be became rertaiu tbat be was Infected, he
immediately locked himself in un Isolated room and posted a message on a
window pane:
"I am suffering from tbe plague.
Please do not send u doctor to me, as'
ln auy event ray end will come In
tour or flve days."
At once u number of his associates,
all of tbem youug physicians, wltb
much to live for mid wltb fnll knowledge of the chances to wbicb tbey
would expose themselves, stepped forward and uot only offered tbeir services, but In some cases begged to be
sent to Or. Mueller. The patient refused to permit It and died alone within tbe time predicted.
At tbe end be wrote a farewell letter to bis parents and plared it against
tbe window so It could be cupied from
tbe outside and then burned the original wltb bis own bunds, fearful that
It might be preserved aud carry out
tbe mysterious and deadly germ.

France Has a New Product, and the
Lace Manufacturers a New Opponent.
Mechanism and chemist) y combined
have furnished France with a new ore-
duct���artificial lace. The general public has beard little about it. but tbe
lace manufacturers of Lyons, Calais,
and Caudry have for some t me past
been much perturbed over this unexpected competition to which th?y wlll
have to submit.
Artificial lace Is In eTect a manufacture of a very simple natu e. The e
is no weaving employed In its production. The machine consists la its essential parts of a reeeptac'.e c:ntai.i-
ing a. cut ro-ammoniacal solution cf
cellulose, a t metallic cylinder upen
.ybich is engraved the negative of the
design, and a coagulation vat.
A lotary moticn ls given to the cylinder, over whicb flows the solution
which, en'erlng the interstices of ths
engraved pattern, flies i'ae'f immediately In the coagulative liquid, out
of which emerges the texture ieidy
to be dyed and dressed.
Artificial lace m�� a beautiful appearance. It ls homogeneous and un-
alterab'e; will wear better, and is less
combustible than ordinary 'ace. Watar
does not affect it. Any d ei ed pattern can be obtained by engraving a
new cylinder.

Whatever may prove to be the goal

ia regard to tbe naval question it
now seems reasonably certain that

*_*-* to the effect that the gallant
Colonel Hughes, new Minister of Ml-

jpartroemt. Unless be is b'.ocked by
Hon. -Mr. Monk and the other Nationalists , whom Mr. Borden has so
signally preferred ln his cabinet-
making, men who are so bitterly op-
poeed to taking steps designed to aid
the. .Mother Land in time of wai fare.
Colonel Hughes Is likely to create a
Canadian fleet which will fly tha
heavcn.s even if Canadian prows are
not to bear part of the burden of Imperial defence.
Colonel Hughes, If. seems, is much
impressed by the growing importance
of aerial navigation as an aid to martial enterprises. Already ��� he has
(md officials pf the department
im.'' Atfentic City following the
aerial navigation experiments of the
American military and naval authorities, this ev'en at the risk of contaminating , them and lessening their
loyalty. ( Other officials are to be sent
to England to study similar experiments there, this second trip being
deemed necessary, possibly, to undo
aay of the dire effects which tbe flrst
-'������al-.* irflSr,
named officials may have suffered
through association with the men of
the .republic.
After The investigat'ons have been
completed,  so  goes   the  Ottawa   despatch,  Canada "wiil  probably make
a serious start  toward  the development Df an aerial departmnet."   The
Hominum. may not even give battleships to tbe British navy, if Dictator

Alderman Johnston said that yesterday afternoon the health committee
had an opportunity of seeing that it
is the unanimous opinion of tbe hos

taken over by the city and that the
city should assist in its maintenance.
While there were many workers on
the board who gladly gave their help,
at the same time, as Alderman Dodd

these things. Hospital accomraoda

Raising the Wind.
Mayor Lee said It had now become
imperative that the city council
Ehould endeavor to face the debt of
$145,000 which had been allowed to
! accumulate from year to year. In as
much as a great deal of this money
had been spent on capital expenditure
for several years back, a by-law
should be put before the electors to
meet this deficit    in the bank.
There was something like $55,000 of
interest due In January; in addition
to that, the principle would have to
be reckoned with.

na nrm.
Fifty years ago tbere were probably
not more tban a hundred Englishmen
who knew what a homing pigeon was.
Today there are over half a million
racing birds in Great Britain, ranging
in value from $5 to $200 each, and
often as many as 10,000 biids take
���- part in one race.
The average person is apt to regard the man who makes a hobby of
pigecn-raclng as tbe humble individual
who is often to be seen on Saturday
mornings with a muffler round bis
neck and smoking a clay pipe as he
makes his way a few miles out with
his wicker basket, there to release his
birds for the home ward flight. As a
matter of fact, men of aii classes today take a keen interest in pigeon-
racing, a sport which received a great
Impetus when tbe late King Edward
and King George, then Prince of
Wales, established lofts at Sandringham and entered their birds for most
of the races. Indeed lt waa one of the
late King Edward's birds which established the record of flying 510 miles
at the average rate cf 1307 yards per
minute, which is getting on for a mile
ln sixty seconds. And amcngst the
members of the various flying clubs
throughout the country may be found
noblemen, merchants, literary and
scientific celebrities, all of whom take
the keenest interest in the pigeon
races, the season for which will shortly commence again.
Prises Offered.
There are considerably over 1800
pigeon-racing societies in Bi itain, and
some 200 laly fanciers who enter for
races. Each of the societies offers
prizes to its members ranting in value
from $100 to $1000, and It ls no uncommon thing for the owner of one
bird in a race to net $750 or so. Take,
for instance, the great pigeon Derby
of 1905, when over 2000 picked birds
were sent from various paits of England to Marennes. France, and liberated for flight homeward to their
lofts. The distance was 558 miles,
and the winning bird, bfbngng ti a
Mr. Matten, of Epsom, did the whole
distance In about sixteen- hours, and
thus won the King's prize. Th? R'v.
J. W. A. MacKenz'e was tte th'.id
winner, and as he had, in company
with many other owneis, pall mon^y
to enter hts bir.l in a pooling competition, he drew about $500.
This race was memorable, nit so
much for the speed of the birds as for
their splendid stamina against head
snd beam winds. Asa mater of fact,
the speed is very low as compai ei
with that of the winning bird In tt-e
pigeon Derby of 1908, whin over 7500
pigeons were released at Nantes.
France, and one of the birds covered
the distance from there to Bacup���
���t^fl.miles���at an average speed of no
less this 1433 yafito $%!> minuti, and1
won for .its owner prizes to th* valua
Of between $500 and $7B0.
160,000 Birds Lost.
��� Unfortunately in these long-dUtanca
races many of the birds are lost. In
the race just referred to, for Instance,
of the 7500 B'arters only ('.000 lirds
returned horae. In one disastrous sea-
���sen���viz., 1903���as many as 160,000
"birds did not return to their owner*,
and of those probably 60 or 70 pea
-cent were permanently Ids'. Then,
again, during the race tn 1903 $100,000
worth of homers belonging to No'th-
oountry pigeon-flying clubs were lost
ln a single race, the birds being driven
all over the country far out to sea by
a fearful rainstorm. In flylhg across
the Channel many cf the bitds, ow nrj
to exhaustion, flnd a watery /grave;
others settle at places en roue for
food and succor and are cartured by
what are known as "plgcon-trapperV
a make a great deal of money by
ng the lost birds to dealers in
ie markets. Then, again, a large
number of birds fall victims to the
guns of sportsmen.        ��r {���

Story of the Qotden Circlet Given by
Queen Elizabeth to Her Favorite.
A small gold ring���the famous jewel
given by Queen Elizabeth to ber favorite, the Earl ot Essex���was sold, according to The London Minor, tor
3,250 guineas, or about $17,000.
It was bought by Lord Michelham,
son of the late Baron Hermann de
Stern, the famous banker millionaire,
and the possessor of one ol the finest
art collections.
The ring was given by Queen Elisabeth to the Earl oi Essex, aud had a'
strange and tragic history. This is its
romantic story: Queen Elizabeth gavei
to her favorite, the Earl of Essex, a
ring with the promise that whatsoever1
crimes his enemies might accuse him'
of, a return ol the ring would act a��
a pledge that she would pardon him;
or at least admit of him giving an ex-!
planation to justify himself in hep
Essex tell into disfavor and was condemned. He entrusted the ring, so thei
story goes, to the Countess of Nottingj
ham, a relative, but no keen friend ol
the earl, to be sent to Elizabeth.
Through some female caprice the message was not sent and Essex lost hia
head. - n
Later the countess showed Elizabeth
the ring and craved her forgiveness
Exclaiming that God might forgivJ
her, but she never could, ElizabetU
"flung herself out ol the chamber,''
and surrendered hcrssli to the despaii;
which seized her heart and died.
For all its sentimental associations,
the Essex ring is a small, unpreteui
tious object, made of finely chased
t>ure gold, engraved with arabesque)
foliage and with a black and white
medallion portrait of Queen Elizabeth,
The  Lapce.
Many military experts have derided,
the lance as a cavalry weapou, assert-i
lug that it is old fashioned and cumbersome. But there are those who
itill believe in shock tactics and lh*\
cavalry charges. In Germany espe-
'cially the lance in the hands of th��(
"Prussian uhlan remains a formidably
weapon. It recently has been pointed'
fjut, however, that the lunce point
(often mal:es too deep wounds for the
shaft to be withdrawn quickly, and
so the lancer runs the risk of having
it wrenched from his grasp in th.*
charge. Accordingly the cavalry regiments in Germany have for some time
been experimenting with a new kind
ol lance that carries a ball below th*
'base of the lance Head. It is claimed
���that the new arm is just as effective
jn disabling an enemy and is free from
inany disadvantages.

what a formidable and facile weapon
it made, as the fatal scratch could
be inflicted while shaking hands.���

Food  and  Strength.
Remember that the food you take
one day supplies the strength you put
forth the next. It is then a mistake
to take a heavy meal on the day oi
heavy work. TJie time to take it is
the day before. Wise stablemen know
this, and when a horse has a long
day's drive .belore him they give him
only what u called a "check feed."
a very light meal, to be followed at
night with.a heavy one. So there are
two good reasons lor a man's not eat
ing much on the day of jtress. It
adds nothing to his strength on that
day, and the process of digestion calls
the blood to work at the stomach
when every ounce ot it is needed at
the brain.

Is It a Fact That Men Don't Expect

It cannot be denied, aravely asserts
a well-known writer, that the stand-
ard�� of honor maintained by wrimen

of men. Insulting though it may
appear to them, we do not expect or
exact from women the "Same degree
of strictness jn matter- even of common honesty, as from our fellow men.
Take, for instance, card*. Any man
who is caught playing unfairly, or is
even xusppcted of so doing, li irremediably doomed to social perdition
and subjected to the most frightful
kind of ostrac'sm.
Yet dishonesty of this character on
the part of a pretty woman, or even
when the offender is an unattractive
old dowafer. excites only cur mildest
astonishment or our good-humored
amusement. The only one who shows
resentment is tiie other woman at the
table, whose anger and scathing contempt are undisguised and who may
be trusted to make the most of the
It would be going a great deal too
far to allege that we expect unfair
play when we have a woman as partner or as opponent. Still, if we do
detect her in any sharp practice, we
sre not precisely surprised, and 'I
the truth were told, do not think
much the worse of her for it. No
man would ever show himself so lamentably deficient in gallantry as io
look for the payment of any bet thit
a lady had done him 'he honor to
lose to him, and it would be equally
bad form for him lo suggest the return of cash advances that she had
condescended to accept at his hands.
Woman's stories and her statements are usually consrdered by the
sterner sex as infinitely more creditable to her power of picturesque
imag'nation than to her notions ol
exactitude���the latter not being regarded as her forte���and an impression prevails to Ihe effect that she is
even more artistic and deft in the
embroidery of facts than in her embroidery of textile fabrics.

The women themselves recognise
their shortcomings in this respect.

us with confidence, "You know, in

Dr. Jacques Bertillion. the eminent

conclusion that matrimony is ��� the
greatest aid to longevity. This, he
says, is established by statistic^ gleaned lrom all.over the world. A married
man or woman has thrice the chance
of a good long life aa a bachelor or a
spinster. In further illustration 01
this contention the doctor shows that
the mortality among widowers is great-
er than ihe average among married
men. 80 he recommends thehi to look
out tor a new partner���that ie, if they
are under 60. This is his advice to
young men: "Marry; you will do well,
even from a selfish standpoint. But
watch carefully over your wife's
health, as even lrom this egotistical
point of view her loss will be a terrible
misfortune, tor your lite depends in

ou tbe regularity or Edith's morning
rides under lhe foreman's tutelage���
"what! I have more than an ordiuary

At this pretty Mrs. Alcott bad laughed merrily.
" Horn and bred.' " she bad repeated.
"My dear child, when you come west
you must forget that you were born
nnd bred. I did so live years ago. The
fact that you are a college girl won't
help you half so much as tbe fact that
you are unlearning your eastern method of saddle riding. These westerners
don't give a rap concerning your parents or your prandparents. Their Interests are all ln tbe present, not the
past. As Jimmy says, 'One man is as
good ns another here and a heap bet-
ter.' So leave off your condescending
air�� with Harry Esterly. Tbey are
quite lost on blm. I assure you."
Edith listened in silence to Mrs. Alcott and  watched her as she moved
quietly about ihe living room of the
ranch house, which wns as cozy nnd
homelike as the exterior was dreary;
then she picked up her riding whip. I

Miniature  Rifle Competitions.
Fifty years ago the National Rifle
Association wus founded to encourage
r'fle fhooting amongst volunteer?
throughout the British Empire. In
thut year���1860���the number of prizes
offered was sixty-seven, the total
vulii.> of which amounted to ��2,23B.
Lust year the total had reachel 6,603,
valued at no less than ��15,502 12s. 5d..
an increase which proves the popularity of the N.R.A. meetings.
While, however, the primary object
of the N.R.A. was to encourage shooting amongst service men, it has also
offered every encouragement to tb*
civilian rifleman. There are some
fifty competitions for revolver and
rifle shooting open to all comers--
ladies as well as gentlemen���with
prizes ranging from 10s. to ��30 and
��40 each. Further still, there are
competitions for beginners. There is
the Revolver Tyro Competition, for
instance, in which, for an entrance
fee of 2s., competitors stand a chance
of winning cases of revolvers valued
at from ��6 to ��8. In another revolver
tyro competition cash prizes to the
extent of ��30 are offered for the same
ctitrnnc:- fee, six shots in each case
being allowed, at a distance of 20yd��.

is live rides, and the Handsworth Tyro Competition, in which the first
prize is a rifle and ��20. In the latter
competition 100 prizes, valued at ��180,
an offered, but in each case a competitor must be a member oi the Territorials or a mender of a rifle club af-
filiated to Uie N.R.A. A competitor
is regarded as a .jro providing he
has not won a prize valued at ��2
or upwards at one of the annual prize
meetings of th? association.
Pehaps one of the nost interesting
Bislf.. competitions fo. civilian members oi rifle clubs is thu. ,or the Done-
gall Challenge Cun. Every year the

Altogether there are six special com-
petitions open to miniature rifle shots,
one of wliich���the "Ladies' "���is open-
to the fair sex only. In this competition ten shots are allowed at 50 yard*,
three souvenir prizes being given by
the N.R.A. Of the other competitions
for miniature rifles, the most popular
are the "Two-Twenty" and the "Hiud-

In regard to the service rifle compe-

fewer than 1.195 crack shots entered
for the King's Prize last year. The
entrance tee is 25s., the prizes, of
which there are 400. amounting to
��2,220. The lowest prize is ��2 and the
highest ��250. given by His Majesty.
and a gold medal.
This competition is open only to
Territorials and retired Territorials,
but there are several others in which
good prizes are offered, and which are
open to all comers. The civilian who
fancies his skill with the service rill?

Holroyd Paull's Recitil.
Mr. Holroyd Paull's violin recital
was given at St. Patrick's hall lasl
night to a rather poor, but highly ap
preciative audience. It may havi
been the we;:t!ier that kept many in
ilcors, but those who stayed away, foi
whatever cause, misso.l a wonderful
musical treat. The program wliich
.vaa published In yesterday's Dailj
News was excellently well chosen ami
in it's rendering Mr, Paull Bfrowed
great technical mastery of bis Instrument, exhibiting also broad tone and
a fine reuse of contrasted efli cts. Mr
Paull was beard lo the besl advantagi
In tho well, known Mendelssohn Cdn
certa in R. Minor. Tho sympaMi - I
rendering of th?' andante, add 111���
brilliance and pi [itance of thc tone in
the finale could not fail to please am
audience. As an encore Mr, Paul:
played Goddard's Berceuse, which was
In treat contrast.
In his second group of pieces which
were remarkably well selected be en
tered well into tho spirit of music
and the renderings were characterise
ijtie. Some clever Harmonic and Pizr.i
cato work was exhibited, notably In
Ihe "Danse Tzigane" (NaChez), and
the muted playing was distinctly good
After the la3t Item Mr. Paull was
not allowed to go until he had given
bb an encore Raff's Cnvalina. which
rtisDlaycfl io the full his fine breadth
and sympathy of tone.
Miss nettle Franklin, who assisted
Mr. Paull, proved herse'f to be thc
rossessoi- of a brilliant voice. Sho
has some good notes of a mezzo
nuallty, antl Is also ross-essed of a
! wide ranee, with a clear enunciation
iAll her songs were given In English
and she received an encore after each
one. To tbe disuppoln'ment of many
Mlss Franklin substituted "ll Bacelo"
for Tosti's "Goo.I Pve."
Mr. C. W. Openshaw. the aceom-
ranlpst, was at his best at the piano,
which sneaks volumes.
As has been Intimated the audience
