Whits   Mtn  Fight  For
African Wilds.
Adventures of the most perilous description have been the lot of Lieut.
Paul Gralz. the German who is endeavoring to cross Africa by the
Zambesi River, Lake Bangweolo, and
the Congo River. M. Octave Friere,
a French cinematograph operator, who
was the only other white member of
the expedition, lost his life in a terrible encounter witli wild buffaloes.
The tragedy happened on Sept. 9, but
the details have only just reached
The  death  of   M.   Friere  occurred
just when the expedition was at Lake
Bangweplo.   They had hardly  reached the spot when they saw three gigantic  wild   buffaloes.    With   the  almost automatic  precision  of  the  adventurer in savage lands the two un-
slung  their  rifles   and   fired.    Unfortunately tbe bessta wers only wounded,   snd,   unaware   of   their   danger,
the   hunter*   followed   them   as   they
started   and    wheeled    off    ih   rapid
flight.       But   suddenly���so   suddenly
that ths pursuers had no time to escape���the quarry turned and charged.
Against this furious onslaught the
men    were    practically    defenceless.
They  struggled   fiercely,  but  the   infuriated   beasts    caught    and   tossed
and crushed them, inflicting terrible
injuries.    Lieut.  Grsts had  his jaws
broken, snd was badly crushed, narrowly escaping d-stb.   His colleague
was knocked down, tossed and gored,
and   only   survived   his   injuries   s
few hours, dying in sight ot success.
The   native   servants   sent   runners
with messages lor help to the nearest
station   inhabited   by    white    men,
Kasama.   in   Northeastern   RhoJesia
Dr.   Randall,    the    district    surgeon,
and Mr.  Coakson,  the  magistrate of
Kasama,   arrived,    after    two    days'
forced   marches,   snd   the   lieutenant
was carried   back  to  thc  station.
Th* Frenchman's body was buried
st Charemama, ��� but will later be
brought to Kasama and re-interre��l
by the White Father's staff. The
German was recovering steadily under medical care at Kasama on Sept.
20, the date of the latest despatch,
and he hopes to complete his daring
exploration by reaching the. mouth of
the Congo at  the end of the year.
The most elaborate plans were
nade for this expedition. Lieut
Grsts left Berlin on Feb. 85 on hi'
5,000 mile journey, with thu wonder-
lahe of Bangweolo as his chief objective, going straight to Quilimane,
the port on the coast Sf Portuguese
Bast Africa, to ascend the Zambesi
in his motor-boat, the Sarotti.
Strange stores had reach - him
about this lake. It was sai.l to be an
inland sea on whose surface no white
man had ever sailed. The lake, the
natives told him, was studded with
islands, on which were to be found
colossal elephants and tall giraffes,
while in its waters hage water-s-r-
pente and other strange creatures
swam. From the surface bot springs
ros? and fell lilea fountains in the air,
and pestilential winds, sweeping
across Uie reedy marshes, carried
death  to  all living b��in����.
No native who had ever ventured
u^-- its surface in his frsil canoe
had ever returned. It was regarded
by one set of blacks as a sort o{
Hades where departed souls suffered
continual torm?r*��, ��~A vy another
tribe as the ar,.>roaon to Paradise,
where the soiriti of itosir dead relatives ar_d friur.ds enjoyed perfect life
under the protection of their e��ds.
Extraordinary arrangements were
���nade for securing comLrtg eu route.
Twenty stations on thc way were
plentifully provided with food anl
drink and other necessaries by a relay cf native carriers. At each station wra placsvl meat, fruit preserves,
butter, jam, salt, pepper, flour, rice,
vinegar oil soap sausages tinned
milk, mus'-ard, cakes, preserved cucumbers, pates de loie gras, chocolate, matches, candles, cognac, white
beer lager beer, champagne, mineral
waters, coffee, cocoa, tea, cigars, cigarettes, tobaoco, dentifrice med.cal
chests, cartridges bioscope films, photographic chemicals, petrol, and oil.
Plenty of flre works and conjuring
apparatus were also carried to overawe the natives.
Balfour a Farmer.
The faot that Mr. Balfour took all
Uie principal prises lor Oxford sheep
at the Highland Agricultural Show
at Inverness is a reminder that the
ex-Premier has been, longest of all. a
farmer and agriculturist. Years before politics engaged his attention he
was intent on his agricultura studies, and the local papers published
during the days of his J"*��� frequently announced that Mr. A. J.
Balfour, ol Whittinghanis. has taken prizes for his agricultural exhibits." Aided by his mother, Mr.
F.alfour devised many plans ior improving his farms arid lor the promo
tion of the comfort of the tenants on
his estate. In fact, his first speech,
made at the age of twelve, was due
to these agricultural connections.

Dr. Owen's  Cipher.
This ls the cipher which Dr. Owen
traces turough tne plays ot ShaKes-
peaie and the works of other great
Elizabethans. By means of it he haa
pieceJ together the "Cipher Story of
air Francis bacon," showing him to
have been the son of Queen Elizabeth
and the Earl of Leicester, and tracing
Uie story of tlie Spanish Armada of
Bacon's life at the court of Fiance,
his return to hnjjiand, his banishment
to Italy, and, amid much else, he finds
thus a whole new play, inwrought into
the literature. This is "The 'ITagedy
of Mary, Queen of Scots."
It is the theory of Ur. Owen tbat
under the names of Shakespeare, Mar-
low, Green, Burton, Peele, Spenser
and others, Bacon concealed the
identity of hla writings, the circumstances under wbich they were employed, and the sums of money paid
to each for the use of his name. Also
that Anthony Bacon, the foster-
brother ot Francia. was tba unknown '
owner ot tbe Globe Theatre.
* Long ago Dr. Owen wrote In answer to the question, "What need for
Bacon to hide his history behind
these marks?" this; "The character
of Queen Elizabeth yields a ready answer. Dissimulation was her characteristic. She was determined to hide
from the world her marriage with
Leicester, and to be known as tha
Virgin Queen. Bacon did not dare to'
assert his rightful position, and while
burning under a sense of shame at
his humiliation, he sought to right thc j
great wrong heaped upon him through
the aid of marks and ciphers which
should eventually be discovered and
rescue his name and fame from the
cloud under which he was compelled
to remain during the life of Queen
Elizabeth and her Immediate successors,"���Brooklyn  Eagle.

Mr. Art'iur Hawket Loom. Up Larger
Now Than Ever Bsfers.
Mr. Arthur Hawkes, who has been
appointed by the Dominion Government to act as Special Commissioner
lor the Department of Immigration,
haa had quite a var.'egated career. Of
cour*��, cvprvbody knows Mr. Hawkes
is "British-born." He was born in the
English countv ol Kent���where the
hops grow���a fact which may or may
not be significant in connection with
his qualities as a rapid riser.
We have been told that Mr. Hawkes
passed through quite a romantic period, when as a youth he pursued fortune with hope and daring in our
great new Wcsi, and conceived there
the needs and responsibilities of our
splendid British-born immigrants in
that land of promise. It was something like that. Then Mr. Hawkes
went back to England and worked as
a newspaperman in Manchester and
London; traveled a good deal, and ac.
quired experience, confidence, and
avoirdupois. In 1904 he returned to
Canada, acted for a while as managing editor of The World, then edited
The Monetary Times, and in 1907 became publicity agent for the Canadian Northern Railway.
It was in Decetr.br ol last year that
the notalilp controversy aroie between
Mr. Hawkes and Mr. J. Cantell Hopkins at the L'mpire Ciub. The way
these patriots of widely different temperaments lambasted each other was
a caution. At least Mr. Hawkes' share
of ths lambasting was something to
remember. The row arose because
Bishop DuMoulin of Niagara; speaking to the Club, referred to the British
Suffragettes ss vix-ns, and remarked.
so Mr. Hawkes averred, that they
ought to be bitten by rats. Mr.
Hawke rushed to the defence of the
vote-hunting ladies with characteris-
tic vigor. The rumpus made good
reading in the newspapers. One paper, we are to'.d. ha-l the following
really excellent heading in type one
day: "Mr. 'Awk"�� nn<t Mr 'O'iliin0."
But when Mr. Hopkins' dignity and
Mr. Huwkes' aggressiveness were- lui-
iy considered, second thoughts prevailed end the heading was changed
to an ordinary, common-place one.
Mr. Hawkes is not only aggressive.
but methodically so. When he left
the Canadian Northern last Wiate'
and started his paper, the British
N-vis of Canada, everybody who knew
htm said���or rather, thought���"Now
Hawkes is going into politics, and
he's going to do it by rounding up
the 'British-born'." Sure enough, the
guess was a good one. Mr. fiawke =
didn't get himself elected to Parliament, as many simnosed he Would,
but in the recent Federal campaign
he supplied a mass of literature ni
the, Conservative interests, many ol
the articles appearing under the now
famous pen name, "John V. Borne."
And now Mr. Hawkes has his reward
in the form of a roving commission
to look after our immigration,
Mr. Arthur Hawkes personally is a
big, jovial, alwavs aggressive chap
who can make either frinedl or enemies witli ease.   Ami he makes a lot

"Madero will secure a brilliant posl-

live sympathy for us as a people and
ln our commercial aggressions   in hie
country.    He  will do with   kindness
what Dlaa did with the Iron rod, anl
will do it better."
Fresh from an extended trip
through Mexico and a personal visit
to Ranclsco I. Madero, the new president of that country, whose electlou
was brought about, he declares,
through a full, free expression at the
polls, M. K. Rodgers,. who has extensive Interests in Mexico, gives this
statement of the new president and
his work.
Says Feeling Is Good.
"I have made eighteen trips Into
Mexico," he said, "and have traveled
15,000 miles Into every state ln tne
country, and I have never seen a better or more optimistic feeling. For
the flrsrtime ln the history of the
country all the people had an oppor
tunity to vote for their president.
There was no coercion, no repression
anywhere. The privileged classes,
considering it beneath them to go to
the polls, took little part ln the election, and when they awoke to the fact
that a statesman not of their stripe
had been elected ruler, their surprise
knew no bounds. Thus at the beginning Madero broke down hosts ot traditions and at once established himself for the man he is, a true representative of the people."
Mr. Rodgers said one of President
Madero'a urst oalcial acts was to send
a peace embassy to the Yaqui Indiana,
who were the greatest su.lererj by
the prosciiptlon plan of tilling tbe
ranks of tbe slave laborers. Tne Indians were assured on the woid of
tne president tnat there would henceforth be no more body-snatching of
tbeir tribesmen, but tbat as fast as
j.ossible they would be returned home
to peaceful pursuits.
"While 1 was In Mexico City," Baid
Mr. Rodgers, "six hundred Yaquls
passed through the city on their way
home, where lands had been allotted
to them. Slavery days, starvation and
ill treatment for them in the heuequiu
fields of the south were over.
Sees President's Father.
"I met the president's father in New.
York before 1 went to Mexico and had I
an iRtacutlna vjalt. with talm. ��� H* V
reached Mtoxlco nrst, and, dealrtac an
audience wltb Madero, 1 Interviewed
hls father. Within thirty minutes 1
was seated opposite the new statesman, and we were conversing in Just
as good Kngiish as you would hear in
the best homes In the States.
"Madero is kindly, lovable and
strong, with a most attractive personality. He can be firm on occasion,
but if there is onywhere in Mexico an
Abraham Lincoln lt is he, for his sole
purpose in life is apparently the welfare of his people. Under him the
lawb are being administered. His policy in this regard ls not satisfactory
to the leaders of tbe army, who have
been accustomed to rushing the accused forth and seeing them promptly shot or sent to prison without tbe
usual formalities of a fair trial. President Diaz, whom I have aeen and talked with many times, would never converse in tbe English language, although he was a good English
scholar. He always seemed to regard
lt as beneath his dignity to talk in
any but his own language. Not so,
Madero. Educated as he was in the
United States, we.l traveled ln our
country and ln full sympathy with our
hopes and ambitions, one touches' a
kindly, responsive chord in his heart
when he tells him he is an American,
and so I am sure that this country
will always have a friend at court as
long as he occupies the presidential
Madero Brings Order.
"Out of the chaos following the revolution he has brought, with a firm
but kindly hand, the greatest order.
Affairs of government, commercial
pursuits and social life hivve fallen
easily and naturally Into tbe days ot
peace, aa though the war had never
ueen. I spent two months ln the
mountains where, lf ever, aigns of
wanare would be pionounced, but
both there and ln all other parts of
the country one'a Mie and property ��
as safe as at home.
"I discussed general affairs with
the president, but one remark he
made during the conversation struck
me as the key to tbe character of the
man, and disclosed his love for the
people of the United States: 'Within
a year,' he said, 'we snail mete out
justice here the same as It ls being
done in the United States.'
"There seems to be only pity for
Gen. Reyes, who a few weeks ago attempted to Inaugurate another revolution after Madera's election was eon-
ceded and the country waa again
peaceful. Three years ago Reyes was
very popular. He had the army behind him, and could have marched on
Mexico at the head of thousands.
When be Issued bis last call for followers, not one responded, and he, a
solitary and pathetic figure In a
prison In Mexico City, awaits hls trial.
Many believe that Madero'a great
heart will reach his one-time enemy
ln the form of a pardon.

Win     Championship���Sham-
rock's Custodian Put Up Won-
derful Game.
Rovers played a strong, fast game
twa scoreless tie against the Hibernians last Saturday. Tbe match took
plhce at Queens park, and was played
with fog banks drifting over the
ground, everything at times' being
yulte clear, and a moment later obscured by the thick mist.
"It waa a game of goal-keepers,"
waa one opinion expressed about tbe
match. For tbe Rovers Sampher ls
acknowledged tot have played a great
game, and his rival custodian did bis
best to equal hls performance. The
Rovers came within an ace of scoring
at times, and one penalty kick almost.
If not quite, went through, the run
of the game, however, waa very equal
on the whole, and the players put
up some football that waa well worth
watching. Tbe New Westminster
team was unlucky to have bad to
take the fleld without Calrndutf and
Melklejohn, wbo could not get away
to play. Their places were taken by
Collier and Coldicott. i
Celtics won the Mainland senior
soccer championship ln unmistakable
fashion on Saturday, wben they
acored three goals to Shamrocks' one
at. Recreation park . The score In no
way discrlbed the game, which after
the first 20 minutes or so was a very
one-sided affair with the Celtics the
only team ln lt. The great goalkeep
ing of Dick Forrest, for tbe Sbam
rocks, however, saved his Side again
and again, and hls marvellous Intuition and activity kept out a regular
bombardment of shots from the opposing forwards.
The Celtics played like champions
all the way through, and any team
that wants to beat them In future will
hare to go hard to do It. The Rovers,
however, mean tot have a very good
try next Saturday, when 'tbey play
them ln a National cup tie.
Fog prevented the Senior Amateurs
from playing their looked-fpr game
against tho Vancouver West Eaders
on Saturday. Disappointed ln this
way the team is now looking forward
eagerly to the coming match against
the redoubtable Cedar Cottage team,
which has been undefeated ln tbe
league games so far. The teams wlll
meet on Moody square next Saturday,

the rubber to one of his team-mates,
Newsy sent It against Jimmy Card

hit Johnson on the eye, causing
excruciating pain and dropping Johnson like a log. Ernie waa carried to
the dressing room and given medical
attention. Against tbe advice of his
team-mates and the direct,orders of
the physician, Johnson Insisted on
returning to the Ice and finishing the
game. Tbe excitement of the play
kept him going until after the overtime had decided tbe match ln favor

player collapsed and had to be rushed
to the hospital ln an automobile.
Johnson returned to Vancouver yesterday, insisting that he will be on
the line-up tomorrow evening, although be will have to play with an

Winnipeg, Feb. 4.���With less than
a week before the flrst rock will be
thrown which-wlll Inaugurate Winnipeg's twenty-fourth bonspiel, Interest
in America's biggest winter sporting
event wMBb opens Feb. 8, ls becoming
very keen. But the Interest this year,
ls greater than In former years from
the fact that the Scottish curlers, now
touring Canada, will be visitors at the
curling carnival, wblchvia expected to
attract hundreds of curlers who other'
wise would not take the time to take
In the 'spiel. That a record number
of rinks will enter the open events
tbls season ls a foregone conclusion
as ls already shown by tbe large number ot namea; which have been ., received by the secretary, which Is
away ahead et the number received'
at the same time last year. Many'
are of the opinion that the list will
be around tbe 200 mark, but the veteran aecretary, J. P. Robertson, ls
over optimistic over the prospects and
he believes that at least 250 rinks will
enter the flrst draw, and be is hoping
that lt wlll reach 256, so that lt will
mean an even draw.
All Polnta Represented.
The prospects are exceedingly good
for one of the most representative
bonsplels ever beld'here, as it is expected that rinks wlll be present from
every well-known curling point ln
Canada and the United States, besides the seven Scottish rinks, which
have entered all the open events.
There will be curlers from tbe Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, not~torgettlng the many
rinks from the Manitoba towns and
villages. The cream of the Ontario
curlers are expected this year, as several crack skips bave already entered, and it is certain that Montreal
wlll be represented this winter. Of
course the Americans will be along
In force with rinks trhm St. Paul,
Minneapolis and Duluth, besides several towns in the states or Minnesota
and Dakota. With suoh a collection ot
curlers, which wlll congregate from
the above places, there ls every reason to believe that the Winnipeg bonspiel of 1912 wlll be by far the greatest ln its long and glorious history.
Greatest in the World.
It Was twenty-four years ago when
Winnipeg held its llrst bonspiel and
tor twenty-four years Mr. Robertsoa
has been on the lob as secretary, so
that he has seen the Manitoba Curl
ing Association grow to be the greatest curling organization ln the world.
Starting In a small way in 1888, with
only a few clubs, curling has Increased to such an extent in pouular-
nr to ta* *������* *u��t *����ry'.<atft_LyU-
*sge- awr tnant va*'-nr curli
and the association bas now some
150 clubs upon Its roll. Its growth
has been such from year tq year tbat
lt has become of as much Importance
to the business community of Winnipeg in winter as the Industrial exhibition in summer. Tbla was brought
about to 'a^large extent by enthusiasm; by Vh�� .enthusiasm of Secretary
RobertsoiOmo, for three: months has
been preparing for the event, and by
the enthusiasm Of tbe men around
bim, the president and officers of the
Manitoba Curling Association. For
weeks the council has been meetlnx
and planning every detail���large and
small���and wben the last meeting
takes places preparatory to the bonspiel, those men who have worked so
hard will have reason to congratulate
themselves, tor the success of the
bonspiel ls assured.
Many City Rinks.
The bonspiel this year will be by
no means local la character, though it
ls expected tbat the city rinks will
furnish at least 100 rinks, there being now eight clubs ln the ctty which
should average about a dozen rinks
each for the big gathering. Of course
there will be many new skips ln the
fray this season, and no doubt there
wlll be several new cracks unearthed
and lt wlll Uke several days to pick
out dark horses, as thero ls seldom a
bonspiel passes without some new
skip gaining renown. But there will
be the old and tried skips, veterans
of msny a hard-fought battle who
have been regular attendants, who
can always be depended upon to make
a good showing. There wlll be men
who took up the sport only a comparatively few years ago, and others
who are coming to pick up some of
the fine points of the game from tbe
finest curlers ln the world. Young and
old will mix, for are they not "brlth-
ers a '"?
Many Stars to Compete.
Probably haver before has there
beeiT such a strong array of talent
gathered , together at a curling bee
than ls billed to figure oj the ic*
this winter. From tbe east there
will be J. D. Flayelle, who wlll make
his seventeenth trip from Lindsay to
the Winnipeg bonspiel, ar-J who ls always a, big attraction here whether
he wins or loses. And there Will he
Tom Rennle, with his crack Toronto
rink, whicli Is considered the peer of
all Ontario combinations. Bob Dunbar
will sure be along from St. Paul with
a strong rink, and Bob is always a
feature of tbe bonspiel, and be Is said
to have not lost any ot bis skill or
cunning on the Ice. Sam Hastings,
from Minneapolis, is another American skip, who can always he relied
upon to make a showing. But,proba-'
bly the most noteworthy fact Is t����at
Frank Cassidy, after a year's absenc*
from curling, will be bacH again representing the Thistle CM) of Wlnnl-
res tflth a strong combination, which
wlll include three ofthe members
who two 'years ago created a record

In an   interesting   history of pins,
Just   published,   under   the   title   of
'Pins  and  Pincushions," one  learns
that'there was actually no factory ln
gnyland for the manufacture of pins j
until 1625.     Up to tbat period sup- ���
piles all came from abroad. But, hav- \
ing established Itself, the Industry has
flourished, and now the English pin

Elizabeth's time that  the  pincushion
came Into vogue.   Tben lt waa a positive thing of beauty, adorned with exquisite needlework and painting.     It
Was In early Victorian days that the

|    A communion table which has re-
! eently been placed on Crathie  parish
church by  King George   as   a mem-
' orial to his father, King Edward VII..
i ls the cause of considerable  agitation
i ln Scotland, says the London Standard.    It  is  declared   that  the  table
does not conform to Presbyterian law
and usage, and Uev. Jacob Primmer,
' who  leads  the opposition, denounces
j His Majesty's gift as "a POplsh altar.
' Mr. Primmer is well known  throughout  Scotland as a viyorous opponent
I of the Roman Catholic faith, and  has
! conducted campaigns in every district
| where he thinks that there Is any de-
'��� parture from Protestantism.      In the
: present case a meeting has been held
in  Edinburgh,  and   a   lcsolution   of
censure passed, but, as this  has had
| no effect, Mr.   Primmer   has written
to  Rev.   Alexander   Mackenzie, clerk
to the Kincardine O'Neil   Presbytery
of the Established Church.   "As your
Picsbytery has refused   to vindicate
the law," he said, "and as the protest
of a large meeting ih th* capital  of
Scotland has   been set ' aside, I propose (D. V.) being present at the next
meeting   of the   Presbytery, and, In
obedience to my ordination   vowfl.'to
present a petition demanding the removal of this Popish altar,    as   the
same ls contrary to the law and. usage
of the Church of Scotland."
It has been intimated to Mr. Primmer that the Presbytery, which meets
this month, may refuse to hear him,
and this has caused him to Issue a
warning that such a course will be
dangerous. "The Presbytery of Dundee," he says, "tried tbat on with me,
and were severely censured by the
General Assembly for so doing."

Every ounce of BOVRIL is prepared under tine most hygienic conditions
as required by the laws of Great Britain.
In the preparation of BOVRIL absolutely nothing but the choicest lean
beef is used, our main source of supply being the Argentine Republic. \*here
cattle are so plentiful and the consuming population so small that the best parts
of the beef can be obtained by us at a very reasonable cost
BOVRIL is a specially, not merely a bye-product
of a packing house like many meat extracts.

The Feg In the Puget Sound Country
Was Rather Dense.
THIS story of a Puget sound fog Is
from Carrie Adell Straborn's
"Fifteen Thousand Miles by
Stage:" "Well, friends. I bad a little
experience of my own once that Just
knocks tbe color off these salmon of
today. I went up Hood's canal to visit
an old friend. He bad often told me
of 'tbe splendid Osblng tbere. and I
was anxious to try It. It was late in
the evening wben I got tbere, and I
retired early, so as to be ready tor tbe
fun next day.
"I asked how far tt was to tbe creek,
and tbey told me lt was only a* few
hundred yards, just beyond the fence.
Before light next morning I was up,
and, securing a good tackle and a little bait, started off toward the creek.
Tbe fog was heavy, for It was woods
burning time, and 1 could not see any
distance abaad of me, ao groped my
���ray as best I could acroaa tbe little
"Reaching tba fence, I climbed over
and picked my way carefully, for I
did not want to fall la tba creek. I
proceeded slowly down tbe slope until
I thought I must be nesr tbe water's
edge Baiting my nook. I threw it forward, and Just about time enough for
it to strike tbe wster 1 felt a pull, and.
with a jerk, I brought In a One fellow.
For ten mlnntes I stood there and pulled tbem In, and then, fearing that I
would spoil tbe duy's sport I regretfully returned and by accident reached
tbe house through tbe fog.
"After breakfast tbe fog lifted, and
we got ready for a day's enjoyment
Tou may Imagine my surprise wben,
en going to the place wbere I had
-caught so many flsb early In tbe morning, I found tbat It was a full hundred
yards from tbe bank of tbe creek. Tbe
truth ls I bad not touched tbe water,
but Just stood tbere and caught them
out of the fog."
Peer Lo Can't Win.
Tbe late Green McCurtaln, chief of
-the Choctaws. bad a blgb opinion of
tbe business astuteness of white men.
"No Indian can get the better of a
paleface." Chief McCurtaln said to a
-Guthrie reporter during tbe recent Oklahoma luvestlgatlon. "and wben two
-palefaces get bargaining together then
ft is Just like cutting diamonds wltb
'Two Oklahoma palefaces once hunted ln my camp. They spent the evening with me. und over tbe Ore and tbe
firewater tbey began to bsrter snd
truffle and to make deals and dicker*.
Finally BUI said:
" 'Sam. let's trude harnes���my bay for

'It's a go.' Ram agreed.  Tbe trade's

Twill Make It Muoh Easier te Apportion Your Household Moneys.
Few American housekeepers make
the same practice as their foreign sisters of doing tbeir own marketing, yet
falling tbls, tbey should make It a
rule to obtain price lists from  tbe
butcher, baker, laundress nnd grocer ,
and compare these from time to time
jvlth the price list* of otber lirms and '���
To Insist on a daily price list being*
sent by tbe flsbmun aud grocer, while
tbe various books should be made up
and paid weekly, for ln this way It Is
easier to trace any mistakes.
Be the allowance per bead what
It may, tbe following averages are
very usefnl for apportioning tbe money
required for the various tradesmen's
books: Butcher, one-third of tbe total
allowance; grocer, ono-tlftb; d%Jry. one
fifth; baker, one-nlntb; greengrocer,
one-fourteenth; Ashman, one-fourteenth. The grocer's book Is, ss a
rule, tbe greatest stumbling block, for
tbls seems to mount up enormously
In a very abort time Of course with
groceries, If tbere ls a store cupboard,
it ls better to order the stores In bulk
which will keep, as this always effects a saving. In any case tbe above
averages cannot be considered hard
and fast, as living varies greatly ln
different households. For Instance, In
one household more flsb may be eaten
ln proportion tban meat, so tbat the
butcher's book will be perhaps less,
tbe surplus being put on one side for
the flsh bill, or again vegetables. Bul
on the whole it should be possible to
work one account la with another so
that the total comes out to lbe desired

It has been known for a long time
thst hyacinths would grow Indoors as

All tbe varieties are good, particularly If one gives the collection a flrm

Tbs nicest things about daffodils for

Strange  Petrali et f- Couth  Pacific
There is s bedv ol Isnd in the South
Pscilic Ocean. IO mile* south of New
Zealand, known ���� Stewart Ulami.
This island. Oh the group of rocky
Isnd specks that surround it, U the
home of a msrvelou* migrant, the
short-tailed petrol, a brownish-black
bird about t'.ie size of an KnglUh
wood pigeon. It is popularly known
throughout Australasia as the mutton
bird, because of a faint resemblanee
between its cooked flesh and mutton.
At certain timet of the year the
mtylton birds are sold in large quantities throughout Australia snd New
Zealand, for they sre esteemed a
delicacy by many people. The euApr*
and preparation fli the young birds for"'
market form the staple industry ol
the southern Maoris.
It is a wonderful sight to see clouds
of birds making for Stewart Island
for the nesting sesson. They come almost all together, flocks ol hundreds
ol thousands darkening th�� skies tor
severs! successive days. The newly-
srrived birds, wbich return to the islands generally about September 95,
never more then a day or so later,
spend the first lew days sfter their
arrival in fixing up and cleaning out
the old nesls where tbey nested last
year. These nests are holes in the
When the nests are cleared out the
renovated homes are lined with leaves.
During the clesning snd nest-making,
which is Hone by both male and female, the birds go without food. Then
they flock out to ses. cstching fish till
about November SS, when the laying
of eggs commenoes. So ./onderfully
is the homing instinct C .sloped in
the mutton bird that each pair ol
birds rear their young in the same
uest year after year.
The female birds all lay on or about
the same dsy and at the same time.
Each hen bird lays one large white
egg with a semi-transparent shell,
whieh i�� hatched in about four weeks.
At first the young bird is a mere ball
ol down and quite helpless. It remains in the nest till about the beginning of April, by which time it is
enormously fat.
The old bird stops feeding the young
bird about the middle of April, and
the youngster is soon driven Irom the
nest by hunger in search of food, to
offer itself a helpless sacrifice to its
Maori destroyed-, for it leaves the nest
quite unable to fly and flops iatly
about. It is at this stage of its existence that the young mutton birds are
caught for the Australian market, for
though the birds in the nest are keenly relished by .Maoris, who salt them
and send them to their frineds as a
rare delicacy, they are much too rank
then for the European palate.
About the midde ot Ar^il the old
mutton birds migrate to the north.
The young ones follow as soon as they
are able to fly. About thf end of May
thousands of young ones may be- seen
flapping clumsily round and round
the islands learning to fly before em-.
barking on their flrst great migration.)

A Test For Wool.
Tbere are aome materials that are
marked all wool, und others are frankly marked cotton and wool mixture.
There ia a certain (eel to cotton and
wool cloth that makes one look for the
cotton even when It ls well bidden.
The test for. thla Is to unravel two
threads, one in the cross width and
one on the length. A woolen thread
breaks wltb au Irregular, frlngy edging, while cotton make* a cleau, crisp
break. In the mannish mixtures be
sure tbat the. light and not the dark
threads are cotton or In a short time
you will have rusty black or dingy
brown material.
Te Remove Mud Sta'ns.
Alwaya let tbe mod spots get perfectly drr before trying to remove
them, and usually1 a good brushing
will be all tbat la required. If. bow-
ever, tho stain rem" Mm it can be easily
aad quickly removed by using tbe following mixture: Two ounces of fluid
ammonia, one quart of soft water, one
teaspoonful of saltpeter and one ounce
of white soap. Let the mixture stand
overnight and shake it well when lt
is used. Rub the spots well with' a
spowe saturated wtth thla mixture
untli the last one disappears, than
wash it off with cleat water.
A Notorious English Spendthrift.
Among the customers at Long's, ths
famous hotel in Bond street London,
which has just closed its doors, was
the last Marquis or Hastings, the most
notorious of mid-Victorian spendthrifts. Hsstings, according to one
who knew him well, "gambled so thst
not even the Bonk of England, backed
by the Rothschilds, with the mines nt
the Transvaal as additional supports,
could have withstood the strain."
Yet even he protested at~ Long'*
when charged 2s. 6d. for a whisky and
soda. The proprietor declared that
this had always been the charge.
"About time it was altered, then."
retorted the marquis. Just before his
death Hastings remarked to a fri ..id,
"I've made a pretty hash of my life.
About all the good I've done was to
bring down the price of whiskey and
soda  at  Long's.'���London  Chronicle.
Cdfiiposes" if Night.
A gentleman visitor to London was,
during the night, awakened by weird
strains of ghostly music, He sat up
in bed and listened, not displeased,
despite the interruption of his slumbers. The music was low, lifting,
and full of charm. Presently it ceased and the listener slept. Next morning he mentioned the experience to
the friend with whom he was staying.
"Oh," said the friend, "that was Mr.
Pelissier. He lives just a little lower
down the rosd. We often hear him at
.lights. If an idea enters hi* head
while he is in bed, he jumps out and
mukes straight for the piano and tries
it over."
