Very Bad  Humor Yesterday.

Next Friday Will See the Queen
Crowned.
The Friday following the first day
of May appears to be an unlucky on.��
uprn'which to hold the May Day festival. The downoour of rain tliat
greeted thousands of chi'.dren yesterday morning when they peeped from
their respective windows wus a Bora
disappointment to them. It wus
clearly to be seen that this city w*s
in for an extended rain, and while
taking in to consideration the fact
that thousands had been looking forward to the annual cei emony, the
May Day committee had nothing els?
to do but to postpone the event.
Immediate steps were taken t'i
head off any of the parties from outlying districts, especially on the
Fra=er Valley llnss. The aid of the
B. C. R. R. officials Is gratefully ac
knowledgel, that company posting
no;ices at all the stations along their
lines calling attention to the fnct that
the event had been put over for ona
"Vwee'c. Witli the exception of a few
people coming in over the Chilliwack
line from (Toierdaie, the prompt action of tlie publicity committee appears to have had effect. In Cloverdale the I eople renort.ed having left
there ln good weather, and little expected to see the pouring rain that
greeted them when they arrived In

caused all round by old Jupiter Pin-

FOR A GOOD CAUSE.
Rehearsal Gives Inkling of Merriment
of "Facing the Music."
Mirth Is of many kinds, so too Is
that which provokes it. Perhaps It
would be too much to say that never
since the days wben the gallants of
Elizabeth's court shook their sides at
the Comedy of Errors was there seen
such a play, but certainly the piece
labelled "Facing the Music" wlll
cause many a looker-on to do likewise.
The tnlented amateurs who a~e giving their services in this play next
Thursday at the opera house, are doing so in orier to help on the Boy
Scouts, who a-e In need of f mds to
enable them! to go to camp this sum
mer and lmwovo themselves. So the
cause is good. And tho play Is o'
the best.

his re;ort on lorei^n missions. Dr.
Campbell gave an Interesting account
of tne doings among the Indians ana
tne Orientals. Conditions among the
Indians li.ing on the lsmnd showeu
signs of encouragement, but pot
laches and gambling were some oi
the erils they had to combat before
tliey had much hope of success.
The action of the Roman Catholic
church ln building an edifice on one
of the Indian lesenes o.i the island
cauted much discussion ana it wae
resolved to protest surii aciicn to th:
Indian department at Ottawa on the
matter.
Rev. J. S. Hen.!ers;n submitted hi

tlon.    Mr.   MacGregor dwelt on    the
eo;IiiI efll  problem  throurhoiit    the
whole ot the Dominion, depicting B-.id
Brenes in some of the places he   had
vUlt?d.    "Thc people of the church,"
sai.' the speaker, "must   get   at   the
root of the evil and stamp It   out beiore doing much on the relitio.is side
Girls have heen found to b2 earning

Hoarding house environment and
bad literature also was discussed.
Kev. Peter Wright move', several
resolutions which were adopted following Mr. MacGregor's remarks.
('ratification was expressed at the
change of heirt in Attorney General

reactionary ste^s that are being taken
in petitioning the postal authorities
as to the opening of post offices on
Sundays, and will request the authorities at Victoria for a better enforcement of the criminal law relating to
Ihe social evil. Rev. J. S. Henderson
moved that the moving picture allows
throughout the province be placed
under supervision.
All the business on the program
was disposed of before the grt'iering
broke up, although several matters of
importance to the church were not
discussed fully owing to lack of time
The closing resolution expressed a
vote of thanks to the members of St
Andrew's church for the use of that
e.ll.lce during sessions, to the ladles

ACCIDENT ATTENDS
VICTORIA MOTORIST

to
Nanaimo,    May   3.���An  automobile
containing Mr. B. Sword, of the Northwest Klsiieries company, and Mr. Far-
���eii, who was d:i\ing ior Mr.'McVitie,
of  Victoria,, overturned    on   Mrlahai
Drive, at lhe   foot of Summit hl.l, 25
dies out from Victoria, en rot itl   H
Nanaimo.    Sword was shot    through
the wind screen, but is unhuit.   Farrell was dragged (rom under the car,
which was only saved   from    falling
over a precipice by the stump of   a
tree, and was found to    be suffering
from a broken rib, and Internal    Injuries, but in no danger.
A car driven by Mr. Tanner,' of
Victoria, pcssel within a few seconds
of when the accident occurred and
took the injured chaffeur to Korines
where he was attended to by Dr.
Dyke, of Duncans.
The car, whicli was a Winton Six.
Is almost a total loss. Pressmen and
the Canadian Highway association are
being given a banquet tonight by tbe
Nanaimo Progress club, who organized a successful decorated auto parade this afternoon. The town is full
of visitors who will leave on Saturday for 'Alberni.
It is bul fitting that past queens
of May should attend at such a ceremony as that which the unkind elements caused to be postponed yesterday. Among the many visliots to
the city who snarej the common disappointment was a lady who lor
suven cousecut.ve years exe.clsjl rj-
gal sway o\er no less a city than
Boston, Mass., so that heie on th;
Fraser east und west ,vould indeed
have happily met.
However, Mrs. \V. A. Mac Willie of
Vancouver hopes to be along when
the e.ent really docs take pl.ice She
is nov reriding at Unite Rock for
the season, together with her little
daughter, who on Wednesday 1-st,���
the real May Day���was ceremsnlously
crowned on tiie shore's of the Gull.
Mrs. Mac Willie made a vjiy ear y
sta:t yesterday momins from White
Rock an.l with "Lady Van," whose
decision anent the window dressing
will be found elsewhere, arrived In
Westminster early yesterday. She
graciously accordsd tome details or
the May day celebrations in Botton to
the May Day committee, and has consented to give the benefit of her suggestions to further tho celebrations
next year.
Back east In the American city the
festival ls by far 'the largest of its
kind in the United States, perhaps the
fact that It was there that the earliest
founders of the American colonies
made their home accounts for this old
cuEtom coming down to the present
day. MalUrj there are carried out
upon a far larger scale than anything
which lias ; et been attempted here.
Some four or five hundred danc?r3
take part in the beautiful dances
papeanU and pantomimes which are
included In the programme. The performance is all under cover in an
Immense bui.'ding, and i3 witnessed
by thousands d.iring the single day
upon wliich it is heid. Ths proceeds
| are g'ven to charity, and the whoie
schc::::- Is englneere.I by the ladies o.
the city.
A charmlngc- converaMljnnllat, iMra.,
Mac Wil'.ie has travelled vey widely,
nnd recalled pleasant memories of the
lands of the Southern Cross and the
Far East. She visited the famous Victoria Falls of the Zambesi long before the Cape to Cairo railway had
reached that point. Some idea ot ths
immensity of these falls may b:
gained by stating that they are a mil>
wide, that Is twice '-Jli width of Niagara, an I arc three times the height
of the Canadian fall.
Although Mrs. Mac Willie has lived
for a considerable period in Boston,
she is Canadian born, and states that
in all the countries she has visited
she has never found a nicer beach
than that at White Rock.

meced their run, yesterday's market

CATTLE STANDARDS.
So Ancient That Their Use Is Mentioned In tno Bible.
The custom of carrying flags or stand
arils In buttle dates buck Ht least to
MIK) B. C. We tind lu Numbers II, 2.
thnt "every man of the children of
Israel shall pilch b.v his own standard
wiih the ensign nf bis father's house."
Kuch standard oI��*Iih twelve tri hea thus
distinguished wus supposed to have
been of a color to correspond with the
stone In Aaron's lireustplitte which
I uire the name of that tribe. Cnder the
generic riiuie banner ure Included iimny
species, such na standard, ensign, pennon, ting. etc. These hnve been used
from earliest times nud in nil countries
to dlre'ct movements of troops.
The curliest Roman standard wns
a bundle of straw fixed to lhe top of
a spear, This wns succeeded by figures of a n I mals. sucb ua tbe horse aud
the boar, which soon guve place to the
engle. the chief Human ensign, afterward assumed by the (iermun and
French emperors. By every warlike
people the banner hns been regarded
ns an emblem of national honor, tn defense of which each soldier wus nt nil
limes ready to die, while banners nnd
flags tnkeu from the enemy have always been special trophies of victory
to which places of bouor In public
buildings hnve been assigned.
CULTIVATE MEMORY.
It Will Prove ��� Valuable Asset In Business Affairs.
Memory Is nn excellent quality, nnd
every business demands 0 special memory adapted to Its particular needs.
Tnke ihe doctor, for example. He
bas to know u human body better than
its very owner und must curry in his
mind perhaps for yours little points
that may be needed for future refer
ence. Medical memory Is quite ns lm
porta nt ns medical knowledge.
Every lawyer is obliged to know, ns
a child knows its alphabet, the princl'
(lies of law. nnd the Judge must curry
bis trained memory eveu further.
Tlie editor or subeditor engaged upon
a paper must remember Hit- contents
of Ills tlle for many mouths buck. The
stockbroker must depend upon bis
memory for much of the Information
upon which be operates.
Naturally clergymen must allow their
memories to run upon religious matters, nnd there are inuny divines who
cun literally repent wliole chapters
from the Scrltpures.
Each profession, each business, hns
use for a man whose memory can be
trained for the one purpose of applying
It to the particular vocation In which
he is engaged.���Pennon's Weekly.

The Country and the Movement.
lt was clear that with the evceptlon
of a few towns and a few counties the
country as a whole had not appreciated the Importance of the movement.
When papular interest was aroused
there was no roison to doubt that
the names registered would numb3r

A lady prominent in philanthropic

journalistic chaff by a colleacue of the

which gave her husband a chance to
whisper, with a stealthy wink: "Tim

PEACE RIVER RAILROAD.
Wonderful progress seems to be
heing made on the Peace River.
Dunvegan, British Columbia railway
which will run from Edmonton to
Fort St. John as a first Instalment.
The news is to hand that Mr. McArthur, who Is building the road, expects to have 150 miies of steel laid
before snow  falls.
Tlie rapid b.ii'ding of this raST?;'
is going to throw tlie trade of that
great virgin Peace river country
more and mofe securely into the
bands of the merchants of Edmonton. A short time ago a gretft howl
was raised in Vancouver about a
Peace river railway, but tliose who
howled for the most part gave little
sign o: knowing anything about that
same Peace River or the country cal
led by its name. When tlie storm of
talk was over it was found, as the
wise hai expected, that the only railway to be built in that direction
was one as far as Fort George. This
means that for several years Edmonton will supply the Peace river as
by position she was bound to do from
the very first. Ultimately, perchance.
the cities of the coast may get tlieir
share. They may in fact supply Edmonton itself, for the opening of the
Panama canal is going to make the
wliole of the far west turn to Westminster and Vancouver tis their ports
of entry for eastern and European
freight. Ultimately toi a railroad will
be built direct from the coast to the
Peace river country.
All opening up of the hinterlands of
British Columbia  must    be welcomed
and aided to the full extent of their
powers  by  the    cities of  the  coast.
The seaboard only exists for the sake
of  the  interior just   as  the  interior
is dependent on the coast for its for-
���eign   lmportaJ-tfnd   the  marketing  of
lta produce.     The larger    Interior    a I
I ort   has   fo   supply   the  bigger   that |
1 ort  is.    Westminster must therefore
always    be    ready    to    further    any
scheme for developing the land  that
lies away  from  the sea for on  that
depends  her  own   future   as   a   great
harbor, and  distributing  centre.

That old. oli story, so new to present daj theatre-goers, "slavery days"

Scenes reproduced from pictures of
the localities mentioned in the book,
as they were at the time when the
great authoress first wrote the story,
more than fitfy years ago.
Some of the most notable of thes--
Scenes are tiie Swanee river by moonlight, cotton fields ln full bloom, the
Ohio river in winter, and the escape
���of Elii'a, carrying her child across
the floating ice, the rocky pass in
which George Harris made his stand
against the men pursuing hlm und
pro*.e< ted his family: the St. Clair
plantation home, th>i levee at New
Orleans showing a slave auction; Le-
greo's plantation, and lastly, thc

I wonder what a theatrical manager
ought to do, to induce the people of
Westminster to attend the shows at
the Opera   House.    When  the  shows
are bad, everyone says that ha. or she
would go if only, they were given decent pieces.   Now for some time the
leopie of Westminster have been receiving excellent treatment from the
hands   of the   management   and yer
they won't go to t'ie iday.   lt is really
most disheartening.     Willliam Faversham came here on  Tuesday  with  a
remarkably clever    piece which from
all accounts he and his company act-
ed remarkably well.   Tliose who wera
there enjoyed themselves immensely,
but they were    wondei fully few.      I
know   that  there  were other  attractions on that   night and    that  some
sixty or more weie    present at  the
Progress club and a larse number at
the Choral society's concert.    But nev.
er-the-less   my contention  holds  good
that   Westminster   is  not   giving  thc
support lt should to tbe Orera House
which  has  been  doing  its  very  best
for ber fcr some time pas'. This is no1
an "ad" fcr the Opera House but is
written from a keen feeling of som?-
thing wanting in a people that supports its own theatre so meanly.   Let
us hope that ..Mayor l.ee was exaggerating slightly when    he told the Progress club that    Westminster people
went over to Vancouver to see plays
that were later played in this city "because   society     went   in   Vancouver."
Societv forsooth!      The sooner   that
word "society" In Its narrow meaning
with all It conveys    of small-minded
vault.-,   mean    ambition     and   petty
nobberv is wiped out of the language
the sooner we shall have a race of
natural men ad women acting according to their own inclinations and
not indulp-ing in a senseless cult of a
hide hound set of meaningless rule?
Imposed by the 'exclusive set,' God
save the mark. No, let us be our-
sel-es, und let us support home Industries.
'its worst. Tlie abuse was tolerated
by them because it was sensational,
not because it was deserved. For
such weak judgment thc. people as
a wliole must be blamed, for pander
ing to this weakness the yellow sec
tion of the American press must be
unreservedly condemned.
The lacrosse war at the presen'.
moemnt presents a deplorable aspec'
to any true lover of sport. As far
as one can judge from the press,
players are bieaking their promises
and their contracts right anl left regardless of all honesty and with u
view to the dollar alone. Such a
condition of things must demoralize
any snort and if the press stories
have any fo nidation of fact the soon
cr the heads of the game get together and agres that lacrosse was
once really a "game" and not merelj
a mercenary siuabble the better
for the public, for sportsmanship li
general and lacrosse in particular. Il
is impossible at the present moment
for an honest man to feel any admiration for anv of these stars that have
been breaking faith with what really
are their employers, however, brilliantly they  may handle their sticks.
t    CLUB WORTH  HALF MILLION.
"St.   Louis   National",   .<r?    V��fll��Ml
Property of Mrs. Brlt'on
SI Louis', May 3.���Confirmation o
rumors that Roger Bresnahin, catcher and manager of the St. Lonir
Nat ion;.Is, was trying to become own
���*>r of the club, developed unexpectedly yesterday afternoon when
Mis. Hei ene Hathaway Brltton, owner
-nf the cluh, testified in Judge
���Odium's courl thai Itrcsnahan had of
feted her $500,000 for the club and

ney has asked Mrs. Brltton what th'

were worth,
"I can simply say," Mrs. Britton replied, "thai Roger Bresnahan has offered me $500,000 for the team and

I notice that a movement Is on foot
among the employees of the various
f tore-keepers in town for a weekly
half-holiday. This demand seems to
me to 'ne perfectly reasonable, and
the hardware men have acted, well in
clving a lead to the rest in tills matter. Beginning from today and con-
tinuliiR till Se tember they are closing their stoies from 1 to 7 p. m.,
nn Saturday afternoons. What I
shoul.1 like to gee, however, Is Wed
nesda or Thursday made a general
half-holiday for all assistants In
stores. Saturday is a gieat business
dav in this pnrt of the wcid especially In the evening when nil the oth
er workers arc at liberty to do Iheli
���hopping. Therefore It is probable
that a holiday in the middle of the
vveeli would be moro convenient ti
the community, By closing for half
a day, I venture lo think thc store
keepers would not be oul of pocket
For one tiling It woul I simply mean
that persons who would have bought
articles from them during thai period
will buy them either earlier or later.
Tliey have got to get them some
time any way. if they really want
them. Anl again they wi I liave a
more contented and probably healthier pet of emiiloye.es. Every man
and woman has a right to one time
during the week when he can plav
gomes or recreate himself In rome
way or other, sway. If possible, from
the centre of the cities. Baseball and
ether games are not played In tbls
country on Sunday, the only day of
rett at present. It seems to rat
therefore that a weekly half-holiday
:�� one of those ideal changes that hur>'
nobody and benefit many people very
considerably.
How Animals Feet1.
The squirrel carries its food to its
mouth by means of its paws, wliile
the elephant uses its trunk. The giraffe, ant eater and toad employ tlieir
tongues, but spiders masticate their
food with horny jaws. The caterpillar is provided with saw-edged jawr
arid uses them so well that every day
he oonsumes nt least three times hi*
own weight in (ood. Toads, turtles
and tortoises do not possess teeth.
Frogs have only an upper row of
teeth, and lobsters and crabs have a
set of teeth in their stomachs. The
tiger and lion do not grind their food
as we humans do. As a matter of
fact, their teeth only work with an
up and down movement much like

KERR"
Yesterday a man listed with me three lots situated on the corner of Royal avenue, Dufferin and Alice streets.
I know these lots are worth $13,000 or $14,000. He could demand that much and get it too.
Now this gentleman is ninched for money and for personal reasons he has to leave town within the next three days. He made me
this proposition: He said that if I would sell the property for him
within that time that he would let it go for $10,000.
Think of it! Three of the best corners in the city of New
Westminster for $10,000.
To show you how much I ;hink of it I will arrange a loan of
$7000 on the property, for anyone who wishes to purchase it. You
can arrange to pay the $7000 to suit yourself.
Then for $3000 you can have three of the best corners in the
most promising city in Canada. It is opportunity knocking at your
doors.   Are you going to answer ?
You'll Never Have a Chance Uke This Again
Here is a description of the lots:
Corner of Dufferin Street, Royal Avenue and Alice Street,
three large lots, each 66 feet by 132 feet and having a frontage of
one hundred and ninety-eight feet on Royal Avenue; one hundred
and thirty-two feet on Dufferin Street, and one hundred and ninety-
eight feet on Alice Street. Cleared, with large eight roomed thoroughly modern house, with full sized cement basement, cement
floor, furnace, fire-place, etc.; about thirty fruit trees on property;
excellent apartment house site, facing on the car-line; good magnificent view of Fraser river; only a few minutes walk to Post

the oldest iu this pait of the province,
some saying it dates back to the time
when the contingent of British
Sappers llrst came up the river and
landed al Sapperton. The trouble for
years has been the lack of suitable
grounds. To anyone who knows anything about the game It h easy for
him to 1111 lerstand that the condition
of the public parks, tht best grounds
to be obtained, leaves room for lm-
-provement from the point of view of
a good and level pitch. To meet
the present difficulty, it ls proposed
1 eror of the glorious recapture of
China fiom the alien Tartar dynasty,
whose sway had lasted the full nine
generations foretold by an ancient
prophecy. At the head of his Cabinet, attended by cl\ 11 and military
officials and with an imposing escort,
President Sun Yat Sen proceeded to
pay reverent obeisance at the mausoleum of 'the great founder of the
dynasty. At the entrance to the mausoleum the party dismounted, and
passed Into the place of saciifice immediately over-looking the lofty
'tumulus.' within whicli the remains
of the Empeior rest. Here Sun Yat-
sen performed the customary sacrifice, and offere 1 up the following
prayer, the whole phrasing of which
makes it worthy to be enshrined
among the classics of China.

BILLY ALLEN WILL
IGNORE FLANAGAN'S THREAT
Calgary, May 3.���Tommy Burns
jstnt.es that be has recthed word
trom Hilly Alien that he wiil
take no notice of Flanagan's threat
to withdraw the belt if he meets Ray-
ley on June the 2'Jth for the Cham-
I lonship of Canada. Bayley states he
will absolutely Ignore any demands
lor the Bame made by Flanagan or
ihe Toronto Sporting club, for he won
the belt fairly and he considers that
he has the right to meet whom he
wishes for the same.
Allen also adds he ls ln constant
training for the bout; his eyes are ln
good condition and he has started
1 oad work to take off some surplus
llesh. He has forwarded $200 guarantee to appear In the ring on the
date of the contest and assures the
promoter that he wlll come West nat
less than three weeks before tb-' bout.
In regard to Bayley, a night lettergram haa been received stating that
his hand was not injured to any great
extent ln his last bout and he is able
to train dally for the coming contest.
He has tailed road work and wlll
take oft about six pounds before the
day of the bout. The articles call
for 133 pounds rlngRlde wltb a for'olt
���oi $200 lf either boxer falls to make
that weight. Bayley has more to take
oil than Allen, but lg confident he will
enter the ring not un ounce over the
weight.
It Is stinted by good authority that
.1 large number of fans wlll attend
the hout from the Coast and several
have Muted their Im'ontlons of coming

spirit tablet of the founder, in conformity with the Confucian principle
of serving the dead as If they were
present in the flesh. The style is the
elaborate form employed in State ritual, but has a special pathos of Its
own In conseuueuce of the evident
emotion which animated the perl'orm-
er of the majeEtic ceremony on so
solemn an occasion. It shows the
detestation felt for the alien oppressor.
The following is the prayer:
Of old the Sung dynasty became effete, and 'the Liai Tartars and Yuan
dynasty Mongols seized tlie occasion
to throw this domain of China into
confusion to the fierce Indignation of
gods and men. It was then that
Your Majesty, our founder, arose in
your wrath from obscurity, and destroyed thoEe monsters of inqulty, so
that the ancient i.lory was wen again
In twelve ..eirs you consolidated tbe
Impel iai sway, and the dominions of
the Gieat Y/i were purge 1 of pollution and cleansed fiom the noisome
Tartar. Often in history has our
noble Chinese race been enslave I by,
petty frontier barbarians from the
north. Never have such glorious triumphs been won over them as Your '
Majesty achieved. But your descendants were degenerate and failed to
carry on your glorious heritage: they
entrusted the reins of government to
bad men, and pursued a short-sighted
policy. In this way they encouraged the ambitions of the eastern Tartar savages, and fostered the growth
of their power. They were thus able
to take advantage of the presence
of rebels to Invade and possess themselves of your sacred capital. From
a bad eminence of glory basely won
they lorded It over this most holy soil,
and our beloved China's rivers and
hills were defiled by their corrupting
touch, while the people fell victims
to the headman's axe or the avenging
sword. Although worthy patriots and
faithful subjects of your dynasty
c rosEed the mountain ranges into
Canton and the far south, In the hope
of redeeming the glorious Ming tradition fu>n�� u'tter ruin, and of prolonging a thread of the old dynasty's life,
although men gladly perished one after the other In the forloih attempt
heaven's wrath remained unappeased,
and mortal designs failed to achieve
success. A brief and melancholy
page was added to Vie history of your
dynasty, and -tliat was all.
Manchu  Despotism.
As time went on, the law became
'ever harsher, and the meshes of Its
Inexorable net grew closer.    Alas for
our Chinese people, who crouched In
corners ad listened with Btartred cars,
deprived of power of utterance, and
wi>:li tongues glued to their mouths,
for    their lives    were    past saving.
Those others usurped titles to fictltl-
'ous clemency and Justice, while prostituting  the sacred doctrines of ithe
eages;  whom they aTected to honor.
Tliey stilled public opinion ln the Empire In   order   to force acquiescence
in  their  tyranny.    The   Manchu  despotism became so 'thorough and so
embracing that they were enabled to
prolong their dynasty's  'existence by
cunning wiles. Uut even so, rebellions
occurred.      In  Young Cheng's  reign
the Hunaneae Chang Hsl   and Tseng
Chlng    preached     sedition    agalnHt
tho dynasty in their native province,
while   ln   Chia   Chlng's   reign    the
Palace conspiracy of Lin Ching dismayed that Monarch   In hls capital.
Those events  were   followed by  rebellions in Szechaun and Shensl; under Tao Kuang and bis successor the
Talplngs started their campaign from
a remote Kwangsl village.   Although
these worthy causes were destined to
ultimate defeat, the gradual trend of
the national will become manifest. At
last our own era dawned, the bum of
freedom  had  risen, and  a  sense  of
the rights of the race animated men's
minds.   In addition the Manchu bandits could not even protect themselves.
Powerful foei encroached upon    the
tonltory of China,   and   'tha dynasty
parted with our stored soil to enrich
neighboring   natiinn.     The Chinese

A Night For Crime.
At 10 o'clock the moon went down,
the stars  paled  and  the night  wind
died away.    It was nn Ideal ulght for
j t. man who wanted to steal a pickax���
also for an old sleuth. Looking from
u luick window. Mrs. Bowser observed
Nemesis stepping softly over the grass
und crouching alongside the fence.
Seven thieves, each one intent on gobbling a crowbar, might have been
watching and  listening; and yet they
��� would neither  have  seen   nor  heard.
: When he hail made thc round of tbe
1 yard  and   found   all   safe   he   softly
I epeued the gate and passed out Into
the alley.
I    Not a leaf stirred.
Not n cat yeowlcd.
Not a thief sprang np and dashed
away.
Twice  had  Mr.   Bowser passed  up
<ind down the alley the length of his
] block, peering under wagons and behind   boxes,   his  nerves  stretched  at
I their fullest tension, when an event
suddenly evented. An old horse that
had been lying In the shadow of the
. fence and seemed n part of a pile of
I ashes suddenly sighed and groaned
and rose up to look for oats. Mr.
Bowser was looking for danger, aud
Ue wns equal to the emergency. In
two Jumps and a spring he was inside
his ow:t yard nud had the gate shut
and was prepared to sell his life nt
the highest cash price. For three minutes there was dark, deep silence, with
regular seven cent calico reduced to
four for one day only. Then the discouraged old horse fell against the
fence with another groan nnd gave
away his Identify.
The night grew deeper.
Enter the Villain.
Mr. Bowser hnd gone out and kicked and thumped tliat old horse out of
the alley and made him wish  he was
a  toboggan and  had  returned  to  his
; point of vantage when the sound of a
footfall reached bis ears. It came from
' tbe north.    It  was not the  bold  and
. honest tread of nn elephant,  but tbe
sly and fugitive fnotfall of a man. of
! n sne:ik.   I'ilpat. pitpnt!   It came nearer mid nearer, aud it grow softer and
'softer.    Mr. Bowser stood at the open
: alley  gate ."ml   shut   his  teeth   hard.
I The moment for which he had longed
' w:is at band.   Presently be could make
ont a darker shadow among the shadows.     At  ten  feet away  that shadow
paused.    It was wondering if It could

WHEN the Brst enowfinkes came
Mr. Bowser hunted up his
spade aud stood lt by the

mow shovel during the winter. Tbe
otber evening lie strolled Into the back
yard to see now many clothespins be
could recover and raise a row about,
tnd be glanced around for tbat spade.
It had vanished! The matter called for
1.1: immediate and rigorous Investigation.
Tbe cook hadn't lent It and tbc ent
hadn't eaten lt. but It was Mrs. Bowser who held tlte key to tbe mystery,
tine had caught sight of a strange man
lu the back yard that ufternoon. She
laid taken blm to be a working man
from next door, but he must be held
responsible for tbe disappearance of
tlie spade.
"By thunder, but you are a nice wom-

It is easier to preserve the color of
the hair than to restore it, although it
is possible to do both. Our grandmothers understood the secret They
made a "sage tea," and their dark,
glossy hair long after middle lifo was
due to thi3 fact. Our mothers havo gray
hairs before they are fifty, but they are
beginning to appreciate the wisdom of
our grandmothers in using "sage tea''
for their hair and nro fast following suit.
Tho present generation has the advantage of the past in that it can get n
ready-to-use preparation called Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy. As a
scalp tonic and color restorer tnis preparation is vastly superior to the ordinary
"sage tea" made by our grandmothers.
The growth and benuty of tho hair
depends on a healthy condition of tho
scalp. Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy quickly kills the dandruff germs
which fob tho "hair of its life, color and
lustre, makes the scnlp^clean and
healthy, gives the hair strength, color
and beauty, and makes it grow.

Queer Incident In Which Bishop
Wiiberforce Figured.
THE STORY THE SPIRIT TOLD.
Singular Disclosure That Wai Said te !
Have Been Made by the Quiet Cleri-
col Specter That Had Leng Haunted
���n English Country House. j
Tbe following remarkable Incident In :
the life of the late Samuel WUberforce,
bisbop of Oxford and afterward of
Winchester, is related as absolutely authentic, nnd tbe good bisbop himself ls
said to have mnn; times rehearsed the
story to his friends:
On a certain occasion the worthy
bishop had'accepted an Invitation to
*tny at a country bouse not fnr from
London. Entering the drawing room
previous to dinner on the evening of
bis urriral, ho noticed a clergyman sit- |
ting by the open tire and taking uo
part In the general conversation. The I
bishop wns somewhat surprised at not j
being presented to the clergyman, and
his uatouishment was great wbeu a
few moments biter, dinner being announced, the guests retired, leaving the
-clergyman at Ills plnce by tlie flre. The
hostess having assigned Bishop WUberforce tbe sent of honor at ber right
hand, ns soon us nn opportunity offered he remarked:
"1 beg your pardon, madam, but may
I Inquire who wns the clergyman we
left sitting lu the drawing room?"
"Ah. you have seen blm, then?" replied the lady. "It ls not every one
who hns that privilege. 1 cannot tell
you who he Is or whence be comes.
For many years tills specter has haunted the house nnd grounds. It has, ln
fact, been u tradition ln the family. He
seems to do no harm, und. although be
appears only occasionally, we have become quite accustomed to our friendly
^bost"
"How very singular!" remarked his
lordship. "Hut lmve yop never ad-
dressed your specter?"
"Indeed. 1 have hnd no opportunity,
nor the desire, for thlit mutter," responded ibe hostess, growing pale.
"Mny I tnke the liberty uow?" inquired the dignitary.
"With all my heart, yonr lordship,"
replied the lady. The bishop arose
and. returning to the druwln? room,
found the clergyman where he bad
left blm n few minutes l>efore. Having no fear, the bishop said kindly:
"Who nre you, my friend, and why
are you bere?"
The specter seemed to sigh deeply
and say ns though to Itself. "At last.'''
Then In a hollow voice, addressing
the bishop. It continued: "I am thc
spirit of a clergyman who left this
world some eighty years ago, and 1
am here to Impart to nny one who will
receive It n secret whicli died with
ine. I could not rest In my grave
while n great wrong wns- lielng done
���which It wns In my power tfl right. 1
hnve been returning nil these years In
the hope some one would nddress me.
for It wns not given to me to be the
first to speak. All men bnve shunned
me until now. nnd It Is your mission
to do my bidding. 1 wns called to this
house eighty years ngo to receive a
confession from a dying man. lie
���wns the sole possessor of a secret the
knowledge of which would alter ma-
terlnlly the entail of this vast esUte.
and In his death he wished to repair
the terrible wrong upon his kin.
"At his request 1 wrote down tbe
���confession word for word as he gave
It to me, and wben be finished be expired In my nrros. It wss very Important that I should return to London
tbat night and In passing through tbe
library to leave the bouse I concluded
It would lie safer not tn carry the paper ou which was written the confession away with me. but to place It In
some secure, unsern spot, where I
could obtain It the following day and
deliver the document to tbe person for
whom It was Intended. Mounting the
steps to tbe booksbelre*. 1 took out a
copy of Young's 'N'lgbt Thoughts,
which was the llrst book upon the uppermost shelf nearest tbe lust window, nnd. Inserting the paper cnrefully between Its leaves. I replaced the
book ond departed. A borse wns
awaiting me ot tho door, but ere we
reached the entrance of the grounds
he took frlgbt. 1 was thrown and Instantly killed. Thus died Ihe secret
with inc. No one hns disturbed thot
hook In nil these years, ami no one
lias hnd thp courage to address this
messenger frpm tbe unknown. The
paper wlll be found ns I have stated,
nml It remains for you to correct the
Injustice which has so long been upon
this noble family. My mission Is over,
und 1 can rest In pence."
At tbe close of this remarkable
speech the specter faded graduiiPy
from sight, nnd the bishop wns left
gazing Into apace. Recovering from
bis astonishment. Bishop ^WUberforce
went at once to the library und found
1he book exactly us Indicated by the
specter, lu Its secluded corner upon
the lop shelf, thick with the dust ot
ag^s. evidently the book bnd remained
nu molested many yenrs. There was
ihe document Just aa described, but
now faded und yellow. The secret ol
the confession never became known tti
the world. The good bishop regarded
It os a confidence from the splrltunl
world and always anded the story with
the nssurnnce that tha priestly specter
was never again seen.

CANALS  IN  HOLLAND.
Simple Scheme That Keeps Children
From Falling Into Them.
The Dutch peasant lives with canals
all about blm and reaches bis cottage
by way of a drawbridge. Perhaps It
ls ln the blood of the Dutch child, says
a writer In Loudon M. A. P.. not to fall
Into a canal. At all events tbe Dutch
mother never appears to anticipate
aucb a possibility.      '
One can Imagine .tbe overage English or American mother trying to
bring up a family In n house surrounded by canals. 8he would never have
a moment's peace until the children
were In bed. But then the mere sight
of a canal to the English child suggests tbe delights of u sudden uud unexpected bath.
An Englishman Inquired of a Dutchwoman, "Does a Dutch child ever by
any ehouce full Into n cunal?"
"Ves." she replied, "cases bave been
known."
"Don't you do anything for It?" continued the questioner.
"Oh. yes," she answered. "We haul
them out again."
"But what I mean It." explained tbe
Englishman, "don't vou do anything
to prevent their falling In-to save
tbem from fulling iu again?"
"Yes," she answered; "we spank
tbem."

burry to follow up u clew tbnt they will
���scramble along tbe Ice on tbe belly,
pushing with tlieir. legs nnd using their
flippers ulieruutely like the paddle of
a canoe. They get over tbe ground ot
an astonishing rate, and It ls bard work
to overtake a penguin when lt takes to
this means of locomotion, especially
when it doubles.
in the water tbe penguin ls perfectly
at home, diving und steeplechuslng In
grand style. It cun Jump clean out of
the wnter uud pop down on tbe ice exactly like some one coming up through
a trapdoor ou the stuge and dropping
ou hls feet. The penguins collect In
enormous numbers and are sometimes
seen murcblng nbout like a regiment of
soldiers ln Indian file, ali acting ai unison.
A much larger penguin, the emperor,
weighs sixty or Rcventy pounds aud
stands well over three feet high, lt
possesses thc most extraordinary muscular powers In Its flippers. When presented with tbe end of the ski stick
tbe emperor gives lt such u smack thut

It utters an angry guttural exclamation.

The ������anchor" or "cradle' shot, as It
was called beforp It wns excluded
from all professional billiard matches,
wns made when two balls were Jammed In one of the alx pockets of tbe
regulation English billiard table so
that the player, by extremely delicate
cue work, conld keep them there Indefinitely nnd practically run his score
ns high as he wanted to. Hilliardists
quickly recognized that It was not
strictly sportsmanlike and therefore
abolished It Id tbeir contests. Frank

therefore, in the habit of placing
everything on the floor, A Danish
lady employed several Eskimo women
to do some washing. Entering the
wash house, sho saw them all bending over some washtubs placed on
the floor. To make them more comfortable she had some stools brought
in, and by and by she looked in to see
how they were getting on and, to her
astonishment, discovered the women
standing on the stools and stooping
still more laboriously over the tubs,
which still remained on the floor.
Method* of German Miners.
In Germany when the miners go to
work they take off their clean clothes
at the mine's mouth and then bathe
Hnd chang^ on leaving work. Shower
baths and lockers by the hundreds
are in the coal country of Germany,
and miners are never seen abroad in
working clothes. Perhaps the German
miner is the healthiest in thn world,

behind the fatherland in furnishing
accommodations and facilities for

HARDENED MUSCLES.
Curious Diseas) That Makes Ossified
Van  and Women.
Hardening of the muscles is fortunately a very rare disease, althoucli
I-tter !:. >wn to the general public
than many other more common affections. Beinij so rare and also co
striking in its manifestations, its
wretched subjects, having no other
j means rf livelihood, often lend themselves to exhibition in museums �����>
"ossified men." Tliat is wlut they are
literally, for tlieir muscles are largely
'   nverted  into  bone.
In one of tlie earliest known cases
of tlu disease the sufferer became sn
rigid during his long martyrdom nf
f. .ty-four years tbat ior so. ie time before his death the only joints in . '.*
entire body that lie could nuve were
the knees and one wrist. He was
wholly unable to change his position
i. berl and had to be moved about like
an  iron  liar or a log.
The disease affects men more often
than women in the ratio of about
three to one. It begins usually in
childhood or even infancy and progresses steadily or with only slltfht
remission for years. As a rule, the
." :t indication of its onset is a localized swelling in the muscles of the
neck or back, hard and more or less
painful on pressure. This is usually
thought lo be due to a sprain or to
rone forgotten injury, and in a few
day-- it subsides, leaving a hard lump
in tha substance of the muscle.
Similar attacks recur from time to
time and, the theory of injury being
plainly untenable, are for want of a
belter name called chronic muscular
rheumatism. In the course of years
the painful swellings jppear in other
parts of the body, and the haul
lumps, which are bony formations,
extend and gradually join with the
bones ol the skeleton, limiting or preventing movement in the neighboring
joints.
As the disease goes on one alter
another of the joints stiffens, the head
becomes immovable, the back is rigid,
the jaw is fixed so that the chewing
of food is impossible, ai 1 arms and
legs are held as in a vise. Almost
the only muscles not affected are
those of the face.
The disease is not latal in itself,
and its victims often live to an advanced age and die of pneumonia,
r nsumption or some other inter-current disease. There is as yet no known
cu:j, but the malady is evidently one
of nutrition, and when th�� physicians
learn how to modify the nutritive
chants in thi body, as they are now
learning, they will doubtless he able
not to cure but to prevent ossification
of the muscles.
Whv   He  Asked.
A boy asked one of his father's
guests who his next door neighbor
was and when he heard his name
asked if the gentleman was not a fool.
"No, my little friend," said the
guest, "he is not a fool, but a very
sensible man. But why did you ask
the question?"
"Why," said the HKle boy, "my
mother said the other day that ynu
were next door to a foci, and I wanted
to know who lived next do*r to you."

Wonderful   Experiments  With   Pieces
cf Human  Heart.
New Yorfc,  May ".���An account of
some   remarkable   experiments mad-
at  the  Rockefeller institute for medical   research   with   tissues   from   the
eart  is  given  by  Dr.  Alexis  Carrel,
���Mrector of the institute, in a report
Just  publlshet  here.    Dr.   Carrel   an

pieces of heart tissue pulsating rhythmically outside the organ from which
the/  were taken for more than  two
months.      The  fragments   were  preserved in glass jars, in suitable media-
The experiments are part of the
series to determine whether or not
ihe life of tissue can be prolonged Indefinitely outside the bodv. In this
connection Ur. Carrel expresses this
opinion:
"It is conceivable that the length
of the life of a tissue outside of (he
organism could greatly exceed its
normal duration in the body, because
elementil death might be postponed
Indefinitely by a proper artificial nutrition."
Then follows this statement:

In one of tlie experiments cited a

] hyptonic plasma,    pulsated regularly
i for several flayBand grrwextensively.
After two months the tissue was dis-
I fected and a small central fragment
removed and  put  in a new me Hum.
It   was   found   to   be   pulsating   at   a

| beats a  minute.    Of this and  other
specimens Dr. Carrel says:
"Generally the tissues seemed, after
a time to adopt themselves t:> their
I new condition and very few cultures
died si ontaneously. in handling the
cultures wero exposed to manv accidents and mlcrohian infections. But
when Infection was generalized tb��
tissue alwaya died rapidly. Many cul
tures died of sepsis."
