Admissions of Turks Presage Fall of Tchatalja Lines���Bulgarians May not Enter Constantinople���Danger of Austri-
w an Embroglio with Servia and Coming Winter Impresses
Powers and Allies with Need of Speedy Settlement
London, Nov. 11.���Judging by an
precedents in the present war, the
news from Constantinople tonight is
the herald of another Turkish defeat
at the Tchatalja Hues, where a battle
haa been bn tor the last two or three
Tbe Turkish admission that so many
wounded are arriving at the capital as
to show tbat the Turks are offering
fierce resistance, has great significance, In viewer previous admissions
of a similar nature and may be regarded as preparing the publlc for another disappointment. It may be possible that this will prove the last great
battle of the campaign.
May Forego Triumph.
Tbere are indications that Bulgaria
may forego a, triumphal entry into
Constantinople. According to some reports Bulgaria will be content with
finding suitable winter quarters for
herariny while peace negotiations are
going on.
The Question of mediation has made
another step forward in the announcement from Paris tonight that the Austrian government bas agreed to Join
with the other powers in transmitting
Turkey's request for mediation to the
-allies and in inquiring on what tenn:i
the allies are disposed to accept mediation.
The revelation of the danger to European peace lying in the antagonistic
Interests of Austria and Servia appears to have quickened the sense ot
the powers and probably of the Balkan states also, to the imperative need
of working In aniicab-o co-operation
to procure a settlement ot tbe Balkan
problems acceptable to all.
Winter Draws Near.
Another factor making for the
epeedy cessation of tbe war is the approach of severe winter weather,
which would Rive the campaign an exceedingly arduous character.
There is still talk in Vienna of sending an ultimatum to Servia and other
warlike reports, bul 1 t is believed
Germany Is exercising an ameliorating
Influence in the direction of persuading both Austria and Servia to consent to a postponement of the settlement until the whole matter can be
dealt with by the European conference.
Diplomacy is.active in all the European capitals. It is understood that
after his Important mission at Budapest is concluded, Mr. Danteff, president of the Bulgarian chamber of deputies, will go to the other European
courts to explain the views of the allies. The Servian premier, M. Pach-
ltch, after an Important cabinet meeting, left Bulgaria tonight for Uskup to
consult with King Peter.
Roumania Prepares.
The reported mobilization of Austro-Hungarian forces ls denied at Budapest Roumania is taking certain
military measures with a view to being prepared for eventualities. Tha
war minister has Issued an order to
all the army commanders that half the
contngent which was to have been dls
missed November 14, be retained with
the colors.
No late news of Importance has been
receved from Adrlanople, Scutari or
other points where the armies of the
allies have the Turkish troops In close

Government Fell For Trap of Younger
Conservatives���Now Asks Vote of
London, Nov. 11.���The temporary
defeat of the government today caused
a great political sensation, but did not
result in Its retirement. The cabinet
held a meeting tonight and decided to
present a resolution in tbe house tomorrow, which wlll be practically h
demand for a vote of confidence and
after some prelmnary red tape, will
endeavor to have Sir Frederick Banbury's amendment re-submitted anl

The younger Conservatives prepared
the trap tor tbe Home Rulers and succeeded in getting a vote when many
members were Ih the country or ab- j
���ent from the House, not expecting
that Important business would be tak

Tbe Coquitlam reeveship is not going begging. There are several names
mentioned ln connection with competition against the present reeve, Mr.
James Mars. Mr. A. R. Willard and
Councillor Marmont are being approached with �� view to standing
agalnat the present civic head, but
both gentlemen decline to say definitely what their attitude la.
Tonight there ls a meeting, tbe objective of which ls to express Indignation agalnat the removal of the pre-

In order to facilitate the Installation
of the new system In the city, the B.
C Telephone Company has secured
tho service of Mr. Thomas Hynds, of
Seattle, to supervise the outside construction work. Mr. Hynds haa severed bis connection with the Independent Telephone Company of Seattle to
accept the position offered him here.
He has had broad experience in this
particular class of work and haa a)

We are pleased to state tbat the inside appearance of the Provincial
Jail, tbe well-kep t condition thereof,
the orderliness and appearance of tbe
prisoners, alp point to an efficient administration and are a credit to tbe
officers in charge; this the more so
that the Jail Is at all times overcrowded, the result of the fact that
the New Westminster and Vancouver
dstrlcts have half of the entire population ot the province. We understand
that provision is being made to relievo
this overcrowded condition.
We have to state tbat we flnd the
City Jail to be entirely inadequate for
the needs of a city the size of New
Westminster and should be considered
absolutely a disgrace to any civilized
We trust that thfs presentment, rep
resenting as It does the unanimous
Views of gentlemen from every part
of this large district, may be the
means of a demand by the citizens on
those nominated for Mayor and Aldermen for the coming year of a pledge
for the immediate reform of this condition, being informed as we are that
sufficient funds have been voted for
Ibis purpose.
It afforded us both satisfaction and
pleasure to visit the Hospital for tho
Insane and the Colony Farm, run In
connection therewith, satisfaction that
the people of this province have in the
management and administration  such
competent officers as is   evident   in
every part of the institution as well
as in the annual reports presented to
the House of Assembly of which we
'iave had the perusal; and pleasure in
viewing such well-kept buildings and
grounds and fine stock   of thoroughbred animals at  the farm.    The dls-
iributlon of the annual    Increase of
'heap by public.sale will make,for a
��eneral  Improvement    In  quality   ot
herds   in   the   provnee and will also
considerably lessen the cost per capita
tor maintenance.
We feel that the patients are surrounded by Ideal conditions of a sufficient diversity to provide for all and
afford the necessary opportunity and
the proper environment for a return
to normal of each patient.
We beg to express our commendation of the government ln the provision for future demands or requirements by the modern flre-proof buildings on the uplands at the (arm.
���which we understand will be occupied
during December.
We also note that extensive btilld-
'ngs are under way aB an addition to
the public or Royal Columbian Hospital. We feel tbat the municipalities
surrounding this city in this district
should take an active Interest in thia
We believe tbat some addition
should be made to the Court House
building, being given to understand
that the sittings of the County Court
have had to be adjourned until thu
ending of the present assize. ,
We believe It Is not in the best Interests of Justice that prisoners held
for trial or those convicted should be
taken to Jail ln the public street cars.
We have to present to you for your
consideration the fact that prisoners
have been permitted to escape from
custody at the Jail door In this city.
We submit that the dignity of the
crown lias been lowered, the laws of
tbe realm made a travesty of and the
nonce ot this our country endangered
by these acts.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

Edmonds, Nov. 11.���The British Columbia Klectric Railway franchise, so
far as the electorate of Uurnaby is
concerned, received its quietus this
evening when the matter was finally
tabled for an indefinite period. That
the meeting ot the council was far
from being a peaceful one cannot be
denied and tiring and cross-firing reverberated the session throughout.
The salient points of the gathering
were the presence of about one hundred ratepayers from North Burnaby.
wbo, coming by special car, were
ready at all times, to voice themselves
for the franchise, and also the reading
of a letter from tho B. C. E. R. stating that, owing to unexpected opposition having been shown ln the councll chamber and at two meetings of
the ratepayers, tbe company deemed
It advisable to withdraw from tbe
question entirely and annulled tbe
three letters previously read in the
council which dealt with reduced fares
on the Central Park line.
Thus the matter is In status quo,
and, unless the council of 1913 decides
to reopen the question, It is left to
the courts to hand down decisions, untll the case of Burnaby vs. the B. C. E.
R. Is finally settled by the Privy
Council in London.
From North Burnaby.
The coming of the North Burnabv
delegation was entirely unexpected.

while the council was engaged in committee In the board of works room,
tliey soon made themselves known by
speeohes being made and vigorously
When the railway question came up
for discussion, following the decision
of the council last week to refer it
back to the board of works, a petition signed by 182 ratepayers was
handed to the clerk and several speakers arose and put forward reasons why
the people should be allowed to take
another vote on the question.
Reeve Weart took the first opportunity of showing just where he stood
and he explained that, followng the
adverse vote In the Vancouver council chamber when the work of ths
Joint Transportation Committee was
shelved, the position of Burnaby was I
entirely changed. I
He reiterated his former statements j
In that the franchise matter should be
kept out of the approaching municipal
election, and from all parts of the hall
public sentiment appeared to be with
him.    s ���
Councillor   McGregor followed   the
reeve and explained his position in that
he felt that the demands of the northern section should be well attended to.
Opposition Stands Fast
For tbe opposition, Councillors Madill and Britton were outspoken against
the re-subiniital. Tbe latter stated
that hls stand was not against- the
people of North Burnaby, but.'against
the franchise In general.
Then followed the reading of a let
ter from Acting Manager Conway, of
the B. C. E. R.. statirfg that at no time
had the company desired to re-open
the question and that,, following the
adverse criticism at .'the..previous
council meetings, they could consider
the matter closed aa far as the com
pany was concerned, and all negotiations, all.letters regarding a revision
of rates on tbe Central Park line,
were cancelled.
Councillor Brltton took exception to
the remarks of Mr. W. H. Hold tun. of
North Burnaby, and a lively Interlude
passed between them before the mat

The recommendation of Alderman
Lynch that au employee in the light

Alderman Grey came out strongly
in support of the matter on the ground
that the militia needed all the support
they could get, but Alderman Dodd opposed stating tbat he was against the
whole principle of militarism.
A motion granting employee the half
wage was finally carried and the probability ls that It will become a general rule as tbere are a number of
military men in the city's employ.
Library Arrangements.
Alderman White, chairman of tha
library committee, announced that arrangements had been made to open
the library on Sundays from 3 to 6
o'clock In the afternoon and from 7
to 9.30 In the evening. The announcement met with the general approval
of the council and another recommendation of Alderman White's that the
library regulation requiring that a
memher of a person's own family
could not sign an application be discontinued, was carried unanimously.

Alderman Curtis stated that the cost
of laying tho 16 inch main at the proposed new location would  be in tha
neighborhood of $50,000, almost prohibitive by itself, but fairly moderate
when the fact was considered that the
| city would find It necessary In a short
time to lay a main ln the proximity of
20th   street.   The   Lulu Island   main
would serve all purposes he thought.
The report was laid over for consideration by the council at a later meeting.

Resident Engineer Worsfold.
Wharfinger Wilfred Philpot wa*
again placed n the wtneBS chair and
frankly told just what he knew of the
trouble -which culminated ln the dismissal of Mate Boyd from tbe Samson, and tbe present nvestgation.
Mr. Philpot was cross-examined but
little, and was practically the flrat
witness called in to escape admonition from Mr. Bole for attempting to
fence questions asked. He admitted
to a greater extent the testimony of
Mate Boyd where his (Philpot's)
name was mentioned. The iron ladder, which is at present at the horn*
of Captain Young, he had placed on
an express rig at the request of Clap-
tan Young.
Admitted Selling Junk.
He admitted he had sold a amall
quantity of junk, but had done this
after having enquired from the resident engineer whether it waa proper
to do so. Mr. Philpot was for a short
time mate of the Samson, but had
asked for his own transfer after considerable friction had occurred between himself and Capt Young.
He reiterated his former statement*
to the commissioner that he waa not
in charge of the stores at the wharf.
but that on many occasions he had
found stores lying on the wharf wltb.
no protection and had placed them inside the storehouses of the different
boats for which they were marked
With regard to statements connected with the disappearance of certain
stores, he knew nothing whatever ot
them and was not   in   a   position   to
trom the wharf tor a considerable portion of his tlmo.
A Costly Craft.
Mr. Everitt Lovering, conductor ot
public works on the Kraser River, was
the next witness. He ordered the
stores for his department himself, but
kept no check whatever on them.
He was the owner of a 25-.'toot gas-
olne launch wheh he bought secondhand for less than $500, and waa now
receiving a rental from tbe department of $40 a month witb all supplies-
found hlm.
Since the time when the government had first hired the boat he had
probably received more ln rental than
what the first boat cost.
Loveri: 3 is in charge of thla email
boat, w auu his brother is In command
of a hrg?.r launch. His duties taiea-
hlm to all points along the river.
.. Asked where tbe boat was working.
yesterday, the witness stated that It
was carrying stores from Mt. Lehman
to Molvor'a Landing, a distance of T
miles. That the boat's speed is not
like an ocean liner waa demonstrated
when Mr. Lovering stated that five
hours would probably elapse during
the Journey of tho seven miles waftSH
the current.
He denied the evidence of Mate
Boyd as to allowing seven barrels of
gasoline to., remain In a Held new
Woodward's Slough cn a certain dati*.
as he stated, he had never had mora -
than flve barrels In stock at one timet.
Coal Passer Fired.
James R- Ritchie) a former coal
Uftsser on board the Samson, gave tea-
tlmony that he was dismissed frona

Canadian   Farmer   Started   Farming
Renaissance   In  England.
English farmers are greatly interested in a fifty-years' experiment that
has just been concluded in grain
growing in Hertfordshire. Marcus
Woodward, the expert agriculturist
who made it, haa published the results ��� showing that grain can be
grown continuously for fifty years on
the same soil with complete success
and an average yield of 35 bushels to
the  acre.
The experiment began when the late
William A. Prout. a Cornish farmer,
went back after ten years' farming
in Ontario. He bought Blount's Farm
in 1861, paying $175 an acre for it.
The soil was in such a bad state that
even donkeys could find no food on it.
Prout broke up forty fields and made
of them ten square fields, each ol
about 45 acres, and thoroughly drained them. It was an ordinary clay soil
of similar character to thousands of
acre* in England, but lime and potash
were in abundance.
Prout decided to simplify his farming operations. He discarded the
British rotation of cmps plan, kept
hardly any stock, and grew wheat,
barley, and oats year by year, with
only a crop of clover once in eight
years or a bare fallow once in seven
ye-ars, to relieve thc grain crops.
Kvery now and then t'.ie soil was tested and every time the report was returned: "No deterioration, no lack of
fertility, improvement in physical condition." Artificial manuring was applied, chiefly phosphate and iimmonia.
Since 1880 records of the yield have
Wii kept, showing this farm yielding
35 bushels per acre, while the German
average is 25, United Stak i 13 l-'2, Argentine 13, India 12, Australia 9, and
Russia 8.
The experiment*"- therefore points
to England, not up to now a grain
country, as a fine field for development, with its markets among 44,000.-
000 of people and its present average
of only a million and a half acres i.f
wheat a year. "Look where you wiil
in the Empire," says he, "you will
find few places to beat old England
for the right conditions for wheat
growing!" He concludes by showing
that Blount's Farm for 25 years has
made a profit of over $75 an a re. and
so forward have the crops beem that
they haie heen sold beiore English
farmers generally have liesun to reap.
Thus, whiie thi' nation was harvesting this farmer was able to take a

Curious Contests In Which They Die-

Wrestling seems to be an Interna
i Iona I sport, but one ot tlie most curious styles to be seen la probably that
of the Swiss. There Is generally an
Immense meeting of Ihe wrestlers
every year, culled the "swliigerfest,"
meaning literally the "festival of
swluglng." anil to this festival come
the mountain men from all parts uf
It takes place in nn Immense arena,
generally four or six couples wrestling
ut tbe same time, with stands nnAind
for tbe aodieme. The meu who ure
wrestling each wear a pair of short
knickers, very loosely worn, and made
uf some stout material, with a leather
belt at the top to strap It on round tbe
waist over their costume, and the ld��*n
la to catch tbeir uppunents by these
knickers and throw tliem. Roth shoulders must touch the ground, and the
men are uot allowed to bold their opponents except by the knickers.
Of course It la mainly a question of
brute alrength. and on nearly all occasions tbe mountain men prove Ihe
better of the townsmen. Very often a
man wlll throw bis opponent clean
over bis shoulder through the air. and
when one considers thnt Ibis must be

For Overanxious Mothers.
If overanxious young mothers only
knew what to do lirst In tbe case of
fevers and colds which attack their
babies many and many a doctor's bill
would be saved. With the blgb cost
of living now confronting us, tbat Is
an Item to be considered.
Children bave fever very easily; consequently It has not as much significance us it has ln the adult Rut. nev-
erthelexa. eren 11 slight fever caused by
eating too much cake at supper must
be watched or It may develop Into a
serious Illness.
With the llrst signs of fever, tbe
flushed cheeks, glittering eyes and hot
dry skin. It Is usually safe to give a
cathartic; tben stop uny solid food and
give an alcohol friction bath ln the
following manner: Remove all cloth
lng and wrap a cleun dry sheet or
lightweight blanket around the child.
Expose one small portion of the body
at a time, beginning wltb the chest.
and apply equal parts of alcohol and
water wttb the hjind or a piece of ab
aorbent cotton. Hub the dampened
ektn briskly, but gently, witb tbe hand
until tt ls entirely dry. Do not dry
wttb a /towel. Moisten the skin again
and rub dry tbe second time, nnd In
tbls mariner go over the whole body.
Allow plenty of time for the skin to
dry In the rubbing. This reduces the
fever by the cooling effect of the rapid
evaporation, and tbe friction brings
tbe blood to the surface In health glv
lng circulation.
Allow tbe child to drink plenty of
water unless there Is excessive vomiting. Cold water helps to reduce the
fever and carry off the poisonous prod
acts within the body.
If the fever has not been controlled
within twelve hours snd the mother
does not know what causes It. so that
she may not cure' It entirely, sbe
ahould not take the responsibility of
treating tbe child herself, but whotild
send for the doctor, so be may buve a
chance to prevent serious trouble.
Fever olways appears with a cold
The bent way to treat colds Is to pre
vent tbem. To do tbls lbe child must
bave fresb air every hour of the day
tn all seasons. Avoid exposure, direct
drafts and wet feet
I,et It wear wurtn, sensible clothing,
and give a cold sponge bath every
day. (live only nourishing food, plenty of sleep and routine exercise.
This Is an Occupation That palls For
No Upscisl Skill.
Buttons bave au Irresistible fascination In these days for tbe clever bome,
dressmaker, for they put within ber
reach a practically infinite number of
effective touches for her frocks wbicb
will take from ber very little In tbe
wuy of either time or money.
A pretty button can be made by first
covering tbe padded mold wltb white
silk and putting over tbis two thicknesses of silver gauze decorated with a
little cluster of steel beads���ln tbe een-
ter���from which radiate half a dozen
or more loops of reseda green chenille.
Narrow shaded ribbon can be woven
Into a charming button cover. A foundation should be cut from white silk.
On this lay short lengths of tbe ribbon,
tbe edges touching, and sew tbe ends
seedrely. Then, wKb a needle threaded wltb ribbon, darn la the reverse
pieces. If liked a tiny frill made of
slightly gathered ribbon may be sewed
ground tbe edge of the button.
Motifs est from lace which has passed its days of usefulness ln tbe ordi-.
nary way can do tbeir part toward
making fancy buttons. A small daisy
pattern tacked to wblte silk and worked over In satin stitch In any color preferred with a few French knots added
will make an embroidered button that
Is decidedly expensive ln appearance.
On clotb or velvet a button covered
wltb velret and trimmed wltb a flae
braid ln a fancy mixture of colors may
be used. Tbe braid can be knotted In
tbe center and radiate toward the outer rim, where the separate bits should
be connected by a single strand of tbe
braid, witb knots to keep all in place.

Irish Home Rule bill. If the usual

Ottawa, Nov.   11.���Hon.   L. P. Pel-,
leter, postmaster-general, received   a
deputation yesterday representing the
Letter Carriers' Association.   A number of important  resolutions,  asking
for the  betterment of  conditions on
behall of letter carriers in Canada were
presented to the minister.    The post
ti aster-general went carefully into the
different matters with the deputation.
The deputation consisted of \V. H.
Hopp,  Winnipeg;   A.   McMurley,   Toronto, and P. Menard, Montreal.
The flrst resolution dealt with the
"stabltshment ot an eight-hour day
Ter the letter carriers in Canada. The
men's representatives pointed out to
he postmaster-general that at present tbe question of length of hours
was too much in the hands of the lo-
:al officials.
Mr. Pelletler was most favorable to
this resolution and said it was tbe carriers' own fault If they worked more
than eight hours. The delegation
asks that carriers who are required
to work more than this period will
'iave the postmaster behind them If
they protest. e
Tbe postmaster-general promised to
consider thoroughly the resolution re-
lulrlng regular pay during Illness. The
deputation polpted out that ln Great
Britain letter carriers received full
ray for six months and half pay Tor
the other six months during such loss,
ind suggested that as a basis for a
svstem in the Dominion. Tbey said
they were opposed to the present Ir-
c'-lar svstem.
The next resolution -was one re-
���piesting Saturday as a half hol'day In
lhe months of June, July and August.
Mr. Pelleter said he d'd not think
there would be much d'fTiculty ln regard to this and be promised to con-
(ider the matter.
A resolution embodying an increase
'n the wages was put forward by tbe
deputation and the postmaster-general
promised his careful consideration.

During the nine months whicii Lord
Kitchener has already spent in Cairo
as British Agent he has accomplished
a task the value of which it would be

art.   ihrly, Unit nothing coud ((tow,
lone time par=t the Government
is becoming daily more evident, Lord
Kitchener has inaugurated a series of
reforms which must, eventually reviv
lutionize the whole financial, economic, and airricultural systems of Egypt
and introduce an era oi peace and
prosperity such as this country lia*
never seen  before.
There wns tliose that believed that
a civil post was not in keeping with
the talents and capabilities of the con.
queror of' the Soudan.' Lord ��� Kitchener's career during the last nine mouths
must do away with''all such.apprehen.
sions. No . iman being could in such
a shore space of time have more en-
j denred himself to every class ��� of
Egypt's population. Lord Kitchener's
smiles have done more to conquer
Egypt than all the guns and troops
A distinguished feature of Lord
Kitchener's nine months' reign has
heen the opening of the gates of the
British Agency to Egypt's population.
When notables, sheikhs, pashas,
beys, effendU, and the commons came
to congratulate Lord Kitchener on his
first arrival from England, they were
told that the gates of the Agency
would be open to any person who
needed counsel, advioe, or help, so
long as these were asked in tiie interest of the public and general good.
And the people took advantage of
the invitation; they came to tho
Agency whenever trouble befell thein.
Tlieir complaints, needs, and interests
were laid before the Agent and men
went away confident of the ^.results.
The British Agency, in fnct. has become the Mecca of an Egyptian social,
political, commercial, industrial, and
agricultural renaissance.
Then, again, when the people could
not come to him Lord Kitchener went
to them and visit'd them in their
t wn homes and provinces. Nothing
helped more towards the conciliation
of the Egyptians to the Occupation
than these tours in the provinces.
Thev rallied the mhs.'C,-', they fiscotn-
flted the spirit of Natinna'.Um which
was rampant, and they crested lie-
tween Lord Kitchener and ICuypUans

The report of Mr. Stuart Wade on
the possibilities of Westminster as a
market centre for the Okanagan fruit.
was favorably considered at a meet-
its I ing of the market committee yester-
I day morning, to whom it had to be referred by the city council.
Before anything could be done with
a view to securing the co-operation of
the up-country fruit growers it was decided to seek more detailed information which Mr. D. E. MacKenzie, market clerk, and Mr. Wade will gather
and present later.
The concensus of opinion at. the
meeting was that no matter what was
done the interest of the Fraser Valley
growers must be protected as It was
for the'r advantage the market was
primarily Instituted.

Victoria, Nov. 11.���Copper coins arp
a legal tender in British Columbia as I
elsewhere throughout the Dominion.
Some time ago a gentleman recently
arrived from the east went Into one
of the city banks and tendered a
cheque upon the bank itself, together
with three copper cents, with whic'i
to purchase a money order. The teller declined    to accept    the    copper

they were limited to -the large citie*

shouid benefit most by saving- bink��.

been cortent to urge tlie population
to collect the eggs of the cotton worm
and burn or kill them. But this great
danger which annually threatens the
cotton crops needed more euergy and
consideration. The cotton worm ami
the means of annihilating it were not
systematically studied, lt wa* due to

will clash wth the Royals on the
Queen's Park oval. All arrangements
were fixed up at the meetng of the
Rugby Union held In Vancouver last
evening, and from now on, the New

in order to trim the kilties.
Little friction, such as that exhibited at the last meeting, was shown last

union be amended. This will be done
at a special meeting in Vancouver
next Monday night.
The touring Australian team, the
Warataha, will be ln Vancouver next

put one over the Highlanders if their
showing against the team in Vancouver a few weeks ago is any criterion.
It Is Really a Lake of Boiling, Bub-

The greatest natural wonder to Java,
if not ln tbe entire world, ls the justly
celebrated "Gbeko Kamdka Gumko," or
"Bome of tbe Hot Devils," known to
tbe world as tbe Island of Flre. Tbls
geological singularity ls really a lake
of boiling mud situated at about tbe
center of tbe plains of Grobogana and
is called an Island because tbe great
emerald sea of vegetation whicb surrounds lt gives It tbat appearance.
Tbe "Island" Is about two miles ln
circumference snd ls situated at a distance of almost exactly flfty miles rrom
Sola Near tbe center of tbls geological
freak Immense columns of soft, hot
mud may be seen continually rising
and falling like great timbers thrust
through tbe boiling substratum by giant
hands and tben again quickly withdrawn. Besides the phenomenon of
tbe boiling mud columns there are
scores of gigantic bubbles of hot slime
tbat fill up like huge balloons and keep
up a series of constant explosions, tbe
intensity of the detonations varying
with the size of the bubble.
In time past, so the Javanese authorities ssy. tbere wns a tall splrellke column of baked mud no the west edge of
the lake which constantly belched a
pure stream of cold water, but tbls hns
long been obliterated, and everything
is now s seething mass of bubbling

...,*.  *****   t* ...*.   9*.  .:.  .  ,
I was starting one morning to attend
to some affairs connected with my estate when at tbe dour I met a telegraph messenger. He banded me tbe
envelope and the book for signature at
tbe snme time, and 1 signed tbe one
before looking at the otber. The boy
darted away, and, tearing open the
envelope. 1 read the telegram.
1 need you very much.   Uo come to me.
Not knowing any one by that name
I began to do whut I should bare done
In tbe tlrst place���Investigate. The address waa "A. J Courtney." My name
la Alonzo .larksou Courtney. So far
all right. 1 lire nt 107 Heuwlck street,
nnd tbat was the address on tbe en
velope. though there wus no street
or number written on the message,
yhe place from which It hud been sent
was Tlpperton. a city about an hour's
ride from the one lu which I lived.
My first Impulse was to seud tbe
message to the telegraph office wltb
tbe Information tbat tbe operator bad
made a mistake In sending It to me.
Then I fell to wondering wbo was
Owen and why she needed some otber
fellow wltb my mime. Singular that
the Initials should he exactly tbe aame
In both! Wns It, after sli. a mistake)
1 thought hard for a few minutes,
theu remembered a girl by the mime of
Owen I bud met at a summer resort
and with whom 1 bad had a mild flirtation.
"I've  a   good   mind   to   follow   tbe
thtng np," 1 said to myself, and I did.
I took tbe first train for Tlpperton,
wbere, at tbe office from which tbe
message had been sent, 1 learned tbe
address of the sender.    Going to tbe
house, a very respectable residence on
a good Btreet. and being admitted. 1
sent up my card, telling the maid to
take   It   to   Mlss   Owendolln.     Word
came back that Mlss Carrington was
not able  to  see  me  at   present,  but
hoped I would rail again.   Tbe maid,
however, banded me a sealed envelope
containing an admission ticket to tbe
opera, and,on a bit of paper was written:
I  Bos 6.   This evening-   Don't falL
This was a trifle more than  I bad
bargained for.    I was quite up to facing a young  lady  In  her own  house
and asking her why she had summoned me,  but to accept a  ticket to the
opera under false pretenses was quite
another  matter.    However.   I   was in
for It, and to repay the obligation I
dropped In at a florist's tind sent Mlss
Carrington a box of Bowers.   This relieved my conscience.   Theu 1 returned
liome ond during the afternoon put on
evening dress, dined early  and  went
back   to  Tlpperton,   arriving  at  the
opera bouse before the curtain rose.
I  I took a seat In tbe parquet where 1
could  look  up at bos 0 and  waited.
Duiing tbe overture a young lady, attended'only  by a  maid,  entered the
box and, throwing off her wraps, took
a seat where she was partly concealed
by a curtain.    I saw her long enough
to assure me that 1  had never seen
her before.
j I tried hard during the flrst act to
screw up my courage to visit her In
ber box, but fulled. However, when
tbe curtain fell for tbe tlrst time I
gathered sufficient nerve to fnce her. ]
1 would offer the best excuse I could
for my action, giving ber to under- |
stand that I bad simply called on her
to notify her that her telegram had j
reached the wrong'person. I knocked
at tbe l>ox door and heard a musical
voice bid meenteK- Tu<Matfy! kept, ber
seat ns I did so, drawing the curtain
a little farther forward.
��� "Mr. Courtney. 1 presume?" she said.
You oould have knocked me down
with a feather. I certnlnly had not
counted on her not knowing the mnn
to whom she had sent the telegram, l
nnd got ready with my excuses, hut
they were not available instead of
putting the lndy rlctil at once I stood
stock still, not knowing whnt to sav.
So when she presumed thai t wtu Mr.
Courtney I bowed un assent, and. not
course thnt seemed to ne open to me
was to answer your summons In person and"���
"Aren't you Arthur Courtney?"
"No: I am Alonzo Courtney; but If 1
ran be of auy assistance to an elope
"My goodness gracious!"
She pulled herself together and seemed to he thinking.   Presently she snld:
"I   wish you  were not entirely  un-
known   to  me  and   tbe  parties   concerned."
"If I am to belp yon It may be better
thut 1 should he unknown to tbe others."
"That's a good Idea. Our trouble will
be that any one at our friends acting
In tbe matter would be suspected at
"Suppose yon begin by stating tbe
case to me."
She thought for a moment then gave
me the required statement
Her friend Maud Dempster was In
love with the young man bearing my
name. Her mother bad arranged a
match for ber to suit herself rather
than the daughter. Maud hnd very
foolishly threatened to elope, and this
hnd caused her mother to keep her vir*
tually a prisoner. Now thnt she really
Intended getting away she regretted
having put ber mother on her guard.
"Hoes her mother know tbat she desires to mnrry this Mr. Courtney?"
"Then it will be difficult for him to
act directly In tbe matter, lie will need
au assistant"
Now, I took no Interest whatever tn
Arthur Courtney or Mlss Dempster, but I was delighted with the third
party to the affair, who was for the
moment my companion.
"Do please lay a plan." she said. "1
have no Inventive power whatever."
"Let rae see. How would it do for
me to secure an Introduction to Mlss
Dempster nnd show her some attention, thus throwing ber mother off ber
"Better tnke care. Mand Is very
I smiled. This was just like a girl,
but there wns the least bit of give
awny to It, which pleased nie.
"I  assure  yon,"   I  said.  "1  am, or
bave been, fancy free."
"What do yon menu by 'have been?"*
"1 would rather not explain."
Uow easy It Is to sny one thing nnd
look another!   She nnderftond perfectly  tbnt the cbnnge  which  hnd  come
over me dated from tbe moment I entered  ber box.    Nevertheless she Imi?
tated me by saying whut sbe did uot
"Pardon me.   I do not desire to trespass upou your private affairs."
"What do you think of my plans?'*
"The very thing."
There  was  a   flourish  of trumpets
and a rattle of drums on the part of
the orchestra, and  we listened to an 1,n ��8|'K'ul,,"'l>-
act of the opera before resuming the I
mntter  on   whicb   xve   were supposed I
to be mutually Interested.   It wns not
till  the end of the performance  thnt I
we  were enabled to resume the dls- |
cussion  of our  conspiracy, and  then
there wos no opportunity, since  the
opera having been finished the bouse
was closed for every other purpose.
"I mny see you home?" I asked.
"My mnltl Is waiting."
"But you wlll grnnt me tbe favor?"
"Oh, certainly!"
Well. 1 enlled the next evening, nnd
while we gave some time to laying a
plan by which the elopement might be
effected we reached no definite ooncln
'sion. I went awny with a desire to
plan my own elopement with Owen
When I parted with her she said she
would see Maud the next day. bnve a
conference with her and uotify me of
the result Two days later 1 received
a note asking me tn call. I did so and
learned thnt both Muud and the real
Courtney were much pleased wilh lhe
plnn of using me to get the young lndy
out of her mother's clutches, but nothing decisive was reached. Oue would
I suppose thnt this being the case tbere
i wns no use sending for me. Since
i there wus nothing to do In the matter,
we devoted ourselves to our own affairs rnther than those of Maud and
"TIjTjiade a number of rlslts for the

It Follows, as Lightning Doss, ths Line
ef Least Resistance.
It ls tbe popular impression tbat dynamite seeks the Hue of greatest resistance. Place a quantity of black
powder on n rock and light It wltb a
fuse. It wlll flash, simply scorching tbe
stone. Place a piece of dynnmlte on
the snme rock, and the rock wtll be
shattered; hence the reasoning tbnt
dynamite follows tbe line 6f greatest
Nothing conld be further from the
truth, however. The black
takes flre and explodes much more
slowly than the dynamite, so that the
elastic air tbst Incloses It. as lt does
everything, gives way gradually snd
tbe force Is lost in the atmosphere.
With dynamite the explosion hns been
so sudden, tbe attack oo the air so In-
stniituneoiis. rbat for a fraction ot a
second It actually resists. Tbe force of j
tbe dynnmlte Is so tremendous tbat It
cannot wait, and It Is turned into the '
rock, which for the Instant becomes the
line of lenst resistance.
An Illustration of this may be seen
during n display of lightning. A fork
of it strikes across lhe sky; It park*
tbe air so densely tbat It can no longer
make rapid progress In that direction,
nnd It turns aside to follow tbe line of
least resistance. It csnnot wail for the
air to yield. It Is tiie same wtth dyna-

Cold, Hard Details of Business Interest These Old World Rulers.
liaving owe. absorbed the somewhat
startling (sot that not a few of the
rulers of the old worl 1 are prosf erous
business men, one quite naturally assumes that Wilhelm of Germany is
by all odds the most successful of
these royal hustlers. And tliat conception, so authorities tell us, is quite
correct. In business, as in everything
else he undertakes, the Kaiser doesn't skip any opportunities to be conspicuous and up to date. Among tlie
war lord's interests is a porcelain factory. The general conduct of this industry is based upon rules and regulations laid down by the Emperor
himself. Indeed, it is said the Emperor is not above engaging employes
himself, adjusting their wages, and
even designing certain of th> wares
turned out.
The Emperor is a model employer,
anxious as to the corafort'of his men,
who have been provided with cottages
and pensions and given a share in the
profits, which are reported to approximate $50,000 a year.
It is a mutter of common knowledge
that the Prince of Lippe-Detmnrd is a
denier in butter and eggs, while he
has as a side line a busy brick factory
that adds material'y to his income.
The King of Wurtemberg is the proprietor of two hotels within his domains which are reported to hi worth
something like $45,OiO annually to
Tlie Emperor of Austria-Hungary,
like the Kaiser, operates a china fac- j
tory. This establishment, situated i
near the Austrian capital, is said to
employ more than a thousand skilled
workmen. The King of Saxony, too,
has business interests of this character though on a smaller scale.
Perhaps the most unconventional of
the royal business men is the King of
Servia, who in addition to several
shops doing general trade is said to
promote th? sale of a patent medicine
and to run a motor car agency.

A Silent Clubhouse.
What is probably the quietest club
in the whole city has been opened in
London. It* members are deaf or
-deaf mutes, and ito name is the National Deaf Club. Conversation is car-
Ted on by sign*. The solitary waiter
never offers an< audible comment un
ths weather, which is about as far in
the conversation line as a self-respecting waiter permits himself to go as a
ruTe. There are no bells in the club,
for the' assumption is that no one
would notice them even il tliey were
*ung. Under the doorplate there is
a hutton wheh instead. of a bell
switches on a red electric light when
it is pressed. When the services of
the waiter are invoked it is a red
light ind not a hell that calls him.
The club numbers 120 men and sixty
women, and included in its appoint
ment* is a billiard romn. probably
the only one in London st which exclamations of disappointment are not
heard. The president o< the club,
A. J. Wilson, is deaf, but can speak
���clearly, and when he opened the olub
he declared that he 1 d never seen
"a merrier lot of men and woman,"
Something Useful.
Mr. Austen Chamberlain tells with
gusto an amusing story against himself. When he left college he traveled on the' continent for tome months,
and then returned to Birmingham.
Soon after arriving home he met his
old nurse, who inquired what vocation he thought ai persuing. "Oh,"
he said, in reply, "I'm going in for
politics." "For politics I" was the exclamation ol the old lady. "Oh. Mr.
Austen, I should have thought two in
the family, your father and Mr. Rich.

Bowling is one of our games that
originated In the middle ages. The
���exact date ot ito introduction is obscure, but it Wns been clearly traced
to the thirteenth century. The first

medicine in th" Paris Academy de
Medicine, lias just been lecturing on
premature burial, an accident the
Itowder i 'ear ��* which is perhaps not so prevalent ns it was in the days of Edgar
Allan Poe. He gave an interesting
description of the many inventions
devised for the avoidance of this, including the insertion of a breathing
tub; in the mouth of the corpse,
which is brought through the lid of
tho coffin and projects from the grave.
But he declared that no precaution
was so satisfactory af that of delaying
thr? burial until the signs of putrefaction are apparent. The provisions
of the code Napoleon, which ordain
that no burial shall take place until
twenty-four hours after death and
inspection by the medical authority
of the district, are, he said, entirely
adequate i.n this point, and if they
are carried out to the lul. no one
need havs nny fear of being buried
alive.���London Athenaeum.

The Famous Mamelukes.
The mame'.ukes w.^re a body ol soldiers   who   ruled   Egypt   for   s-veral
hundred years.   Their name is derived
from   an   Arab   word   which   m?sns
slave, and  they were originally cop-
tives from  Caucasian   countries.    In
thi middle of thj thirteenth century
they w?re introduced  into Egypt   as
the Sultan's bodyguard, but upon the
accession of Turan 81iah. whom they
hated, they overthr.-w him and elected one of themselves   in   his   place.
For  nearly 300 years  they  held  the
power thus usurped, and even when j
compelled to rpsign it they had much !
influ:nce   in Egypt.   In   1811   nearly
all the   mamelukes   were   massacred
by Mohammed Ali,  and   those   who
then escaped to Nubia wera destroyed
in 1820.
No Influence With Him.
During a municipal eleotion in a
town in the weet of Scotland a young
lady who was canvassing on b-hslf of
one' of the candidates called at a
house, the door of which was opened
by the goodwiie. "I have called to
solicit your vote on behalf of Mr. ���,"
said the young lady.
i "But it's not me that's got the vote.
It's me man," replied the woman.
"Yes," said the young lady, "but !
thought you mieht perhaps use your
influence with him."
"Me inflooence him?" Said the good-
wife. "I hiv noe inflooence wi' him.
