the
Todiy is May Day. To be sure last
Friday was to have been, but the
Fates decreed that the children would
have to wait another week for their
holiday, and the pleasure of crowning
their Queen. To most of the grownups the day also appeals.
The custom has now become quite
old In Westminster, dating from 1870.
So far as can be learned lt was In-
auguiated by several of tlie members
of the old volunteer flre brigade, called in those days "Hyacks," and some
of whom had seen thc custom ln California. The leader of the movement
was ln all probability tbe late Colonel
Scot;, for he bad lived In California
.for several years, and while In West-
"minster in the early days took a leading part ln all the movements of the
day. During later years he was a
regular attendant, coming over from
Port Moody. The day has now come
to be looked upon as one of the distinctive features of the city, like the
Rose festival of Portland.
May Day is meant especially for the
child:On, For several weeks the committee bas met every Wednesday to
le-fect tbe arrangements. New features have teen a ted, nnd the chief
among these v.ill le the only and original .V.ayiok. dance for which twentj

London, May !).���The government
carried the Home Rule bill on Its secon 1 reading In the House of Commons
tonight by a majority of 101, as
against 94 for the first reading. The
vote was 372 to 271.
It was the most largely attended
House of the present parliament. Both
sides had done their utmost to secure
every available vote. Mr. Balfour,
former opposition leader, and Mr.
Churchill, first lord of the admiralty,
returned from Weymouth In order to
be present.
The announcement of tbe figures
showing an increased majority occasioned enthusiastic demonstrations />n
the Government side, and the prime

Bermejillo.

SPAIN'S EVIDENCE
IN HOWARD CASE
At the rebel front, near Bermejillo,
Mexico, May 9,���Skirmishing between
the vanguard of General Orozco's
army and the federals under Ceneral
Huerta continued for hourB today
through a cyclone o.' wind and dust
on the desert plains in front of Torreon, the objective point of the rebels.
Operating from Kscalon as a base
where Orozco and his staff are stationed the Liberal forces continued today to tighten their corion around
the heavily earilsoned and foi titled
federal outposts at Bermejillo ana
'Miiplmi. both towns being less than
20 miles from Torreon. Though much
skirmishing has been ln progress, no
battle had been fought up to 5 o'clock
tonight, the federals refusing to be
drawn from their strum, positions.
There was hardly an hour in the day,
however, that the Liberals did not

The bill was rererred to a committee of the whole House, but as Home
Rule, and Welsh disestablishment are
being taken concurrently lt will now
be the turn of the Welsh bill. The
committee stage of the Home Rule
bill is not expected to be reached until Whitsuntide, and probably will occupy a couple of months even with
lil eral application of the closure rules
as the opposition is prei aring an endless list of amendments and wil]

Curiously Ihe second reading of the

Detective Tel's How He Fastened on
Accused as Guilty Person���
Expert Evidence.
The case of Alexander Herbert
Howard came up ln the assize court
yesterday morning. Howard is a
young man somewhere In the twenties
and Ib charged with sending a letter
to Mr. Jonathan Bone demanding the
payment of $1000 or suffeilng a
violent death. Accused Is being defended by Mr. Ceorge Cassidy. Mr.
] J. R. Grant Is appearing for the crown
and Mr. W. F. Hansford has a watching bilef.
After Mr. Bone had occupied the
stand all morning a detective of tbe
Thlel Detective agency, A. B. Spain,
gave evidence In tbe Howard case yesterday afiernoon. He saw Mr. Bone
In regard to the case and at once
selected Howard as a li.;ely person,
because he found he was without
fundB. Two checks he got from Bon?
he found were worthless. He arrived
here on February 7, and after two
days succeeded ln finding Howard at
No. 3 fire hall. He told Howard who
he was and asked bim to go with him.
Together they went down to the
Windsor hotel, to Spain's room, where
he had the accused write words, draw
skull and cross bones, and draw-
squares. He showed the letters to

In the meantime General Orozco
was massing his men and getting
them into positions where his artillery could support them. By the brlng-
Ine u? of more guns and dynamite

can take the federal outpost by assault and drive those federals not
killed and captured In to Torreon for
a last stand. Notwithstanding the intense beat the men In the field are iu

In the absence of Mayor Lee, Alderman Gray was appointed to preside

Joshua.   Clark     Submits    Important
Paper���Society and Work in
Civil Wars.
Washington, May 9.���Th�� most Important question for the Intel national
Rei Cross conference in session here
today to solve was: What can the
Red Cross do ln case of civil war,
when Internal jealousies exist?
Joshua R. Clark, jr., solicitor of the
United States department ot state,
was to have spoken on the subject today,, but of so much value dil the
officers ot the conference consider his
paper and suggestions tbat a special.
committee was named to report on
Mr. Clark's papers before it is openly'
discussed.
The committee composed of representatives of Germany, France, Russia, Italy, Greece and Cuba, will not
have its report lea.ly until next week.
Solicitor Clark's paper suggests that
ln time of civil war In a certain country, the Red Cross ot other nations
offer their assistance to he guided in
the work by the terms of an agreement, conformable in general with
practices which would be international In character.
Seve-ul recent charges by thc revolutionists ln Mexico that their wound,
ed were not receiving as much attention from the Red Cross workers
as they should, gives Interest to the
question.
Amateurs Score    Big    Success
"Facing the Music"���Boy Scouts
In Uniform.
The opera house was swept by a
gale of laughter for about three
hours last night, when the amateurs,
under the sta;;e management of Mr.
B. R. Hill, played "Facine the Music"
in aid of the Boy Scouts. The scouts
themselves were present in full uniform occup: lng the front seats of the
stalls. A red uniform or two was also
seen among the audience.
The play itself was intensely amusing and Mr. Hid as "the other Mr.
Smith" was a huge success. He played the part of the distracted husband,
driven nearly mad after a "thick"
night by the most mixed embroi;llo
imaginable, more mixed almost than
the drinks of which he had apparently
been partaking the night before.
There was no fault to find with Mr.
Hill's performance; many professionals could not have extracted half the
fun out of the part that he did. The
rest of the cast were all excellent and
the whole piece went with Just that
swing that is pearly always absent
from amateur performances.
It seems a pity to pick out anybody particular tor mention, but Mrs,
J. D. Taylor male a very perfect
Mrs. Ponting. while Mr. A. Matthison
played Rev. John Smith with extreme
unctuousness. The two poor wives
were also good, and Mrs. George
Watts made a- moat attractive little
acties?.   Sergeant Duff ell could hardly
have been denser, and Dick and Uncle
both seemed to enjoy themselves In
their roles.
Altogether the amateurs may congratulate themselves on an excellent
performance and seldom has an audience laughed, more at any farce than
did that at the opera house last night.
BULKHEAD8 LEFT OPEN.
went to Vancouver and laid the writing before an expert, and as the result came back and had to spend
iliree days lookln; for Howard. The
only place he found be visited was a
grocery store, the proprietor of which
said he could not find where Howard
:tayed. Accordingly, he left a note
for hlm and la'er saw Howard enter
by a rear doer, ~
On cross-examination, the witness
said he first considered several persons, but was soon led to seek for
Howard. He started to look for him
the day after be came because he had
heard of the interest of Howard In
the affairs of Bone. Asked if he had
considered tbe possibility of others
being connected in the case he said
there were several and, pressed for
names, gave those of Broom and
Corrigan. The witness was pressed
how much he sought for evidence
against others and said '.hat the lead
waa all ln the direction of Howard.
He went up to the iady with whom
Howard had roomed and she said that
she had not seem him for two weeks
and that he owed her money; he
went up to the fire hall and several
other places and going back to the
fire hall at last found him there. Asked lf he saw the rol Ice after the interview at the Windsor he said he
went up tbere and showed the specimens of writing to the chief, who
agreed with him that they ought to
show them, to an expert. He also admitted that he had been guided ln
the flrat Instance in searching for
Howard by the Influence of the police.
Asked lf he considered the accused
guiltv he said yes, because of the
conditions and the conditions he said
were that the man had no money, be-
causlng of the writing, and because
he had no regular place of abode.
The rest of the afternoon was spent
In examining the exhlbhs ot handwriting, and In this connection Mr. R.
J. Sprott. of the Vancouver Bhslness
school, and a local bank teller testified
that they considered that the specimens of hand writing were written by
the same jerson. although there had
been some attempt at disguise.
True bills were returned ln the following cases: Rex versus Julian. Hurley. Olsen. Mlnlchl Rossi. Holton,
Vendlclo. Salbery, Omplepy, Bryan,

settled there and then. A suggestion
was also made that the building inspector be heard, but nothing came
of it.
The meeting therefore adtournel,
and tbe school trustees after air
were enabled 'o witness a theatrical
performance riven for the benefit of
the Boy Scouts, an organization in
which they have evinced the greatest
interest.

The visitors afterwards went ower
to Vancouver to witness a similar exhibition of the troop under Chief Carlisle. Unfortunately it was marred'
somewhat by an accident whicli came
within an ace of putting out of commission for keeps several of the*
visitors. One of the heavy truck*
carrying the Belllngham officials,
while traveling at the rate of 35 miles
an hour, came into collision with the'
auto driven by Assistant Chief Thompson. The latter hit the truck amld-

pony ever seen in Canada.
Col. Meluhen is a son of tbo lata
Mr. Robert Meigben. tiio Montreal
i.iill king. Ha was linrtt at Perth,
Out.; educated at McGill. Ho is a
tall, clean, quick innn, wlin glides
across the floor to answer U10 telephone1 or to attend "to snms hu*fns*i
at the other end rt tho roi 111 with
silent, swift and sure poise. Another
thing about the colonel���lie look* always in tl.e pink of condition. Probably Unit is because ho Id si fond
of riding horses and pl.-ying polo;
then, of i ursc. too, he is a graduate
of that splendid physical training

left by bis father on the boards cf
some of tho great Industries with
which hc was so long connected; and
then bringing to fruition some nf bii
own youthful droams which bad been
dozing In Uie back of bis bead. One
of these was nii..-i".
The colonel fives 111u.de. Well,
what Highlander doesn't!' Tb" colonel had lung been interested in grand
orern as it is produced in London,
Berlin and Paris. In these cities
grand opera receives its support trom
state subsidy cr by means of aid
from private individuals. Because of
high salaries required to be paid for
singers, expense of scenery and costumes, and the limited audience to
whom music of the lirst clas: appeal*,
grand opera has not been, generally
speaking, a profitable business for private enterprise. Its most successful
production lias been a matter of atata
effort or patriotic generosity.
Two years ago, Col. Meigben became convinced that Canada was entitled to a grand opera of its own. Ile
called in Sir Rodolplie Forget. Sir
Montague Allan, and other Montreal
men of money, who. agreed with bim.
Col. Meigben did not stop with talking. He and bis associates p-1 up a
huge sum of money, engaged singers,
an.l the result is the Montreal Opera
Company.
La��t season tbc company bad a successful premiere. Rut thii season tbey
eclipsed expectations. V*,r three
months, they sang at FJ Majesty'?.
Montreal, and then visited Quebec
Toronto and Ottawa. During Ihat
time tbey produced two French and
tw'o Italian operas wllich bad never
before been heard in America.
Col. Meigben thinks tint tbe success of grand opera li only a* matter
of education in this country. 'Ilia
Montreal Opera lie hopes will Income*
a national institution; and lie i* very
ontimistic over tlie fact that five ol
till, yonr'a compnny  rro Cnnailuirn.
The Caribou Is Back.
Hunters returning from   the   Mari.
time Province* report that tin- caribou
lias returned to iu aicu'tomi'd haunts
in thn?e district*. This new? win
reielved with n great d'uil nf surprise,
for it was believed Hint this wander,
ing animal had deserted tlie hunting
grounds ii"ver to return.
Tbe c11rib.11 deserted llie down eii.-t
country about 20 year? ago, going, it
is supposed, to Labrador. Many
theories haw been advanced in ex-
p'.iinr.tion of the migration of thesn
Bnimal��, but experts disagree aii to
the cause of iheir depurturp. The
Caribou roams from the nortli shore
<f Hudson Ray to the const of Labrii-
dor and a? far south ns the- 45th
parallel of latitude -11 the eastern side
if tli" continent. Sometimes, ia
mountainous sections, tliey will ;o
even further south. A moose or a
deer can be tamed easily and mad" it
domestic animal, but the caribou i<
like the partridge���if confined. tb"y
di.*; if given liberty, the wander
away. Caribou care little for grass,
Ie:ive�� or browse, on which the moose
and the deer suhsi-t. Tliey live principally nn moss, lichens, rotten wood,
toad-tools nnd mush- 011.3 and lliu
wood-tools end liiupm growth of decaying trees. They like a billy, rocky
pi:, "j and do not remain long in one
spot unless the ground is broken or
uneven.

WONDERFUL   LONDON   ROBBERY.
Robbers
Bored  Through   Four  Walls
and Forced Safe.
London, En!-'., May 8.���A gang o."
expert' Jewel thieves recent'y c irrled
out an extraordinarily dai lng burglary
during the week-end at the wholesale
Jewelry establishment of MeBsrs. A.
and J. Etlllnger, on the first and second Iloor* of No. 176 Regent street,
West, getting clear away with Jewels
of the estimated value of between
��8000 and ��10,000, ($50,000.)
In order to reach their objective the
men  had  to tunnel    through    thret^^^^^^^^^^^_^__^^
party  walls, a work  which, together j beautiful trip through the
with    the task  of forcing  the    safe'
when they obtained admission to the
Jewelers' premises, must have taken
many hours to accomplish���probably
the whole of Sunday.
Investigations show that operations were comn-encel at ths Cot-
t' 0e Tea Rooms, three doors away,
which has its entrance in Chapel
Coun. How access was obtained
here is not certain, but having once
got In-ide, the gang proceeded to the
third floor, where ths ofTIce ls situated. They then removed a glass pane'
fiom the door, and having entered the
room, turnel their attention to a wall
on the rbiht han 1 Bide. A cupboard
standing ln a crevice by the fireplace
wa�� torn down, and an attack was
made on the brickwork separating the
premises from those of the Irish Linen Comrany. The wall 1* 14 inches
thle'-, rnd bricks and mortar were
dls'iaccd nnd flung back in the office
until a hole big enough to allow a
man to crawl tbrough comfortably
hnd Pr<>n made.- The second wall the
men pierced was 18 Inches thick, and
guvp tbem access to the premises of
Messrs. Goodyear, artistic fabric
denies Here a descent was made by
the stairway, an Iron door having to,
be forced on the way to the second
floor, on a level wlt'i the Jewe'ers'
premises. Again the burglars attacked a v-all 18 inches thick, pryln; away
the bricks and mortar.
At last they reached their goal, but
the hare'est task of all stl'l confronted them. They had yet to force tbe
safp In which the valuable Jewelry
slocked by Messrs. Ettltnger was
placed over night, and manv hours
m.iFt have elaspsed before they succeeds:1. When thev did eventually
reach the bootv thev se'etted the
plunder with wonderful coolness anl
dl ���.'rimination, evidently born of ��������:-
perlence, nnd flnallv decamped by Ihe
way tliey bnd come.
Mr. Fttllnger stated that he could
not siy hOW many thousand pounds

To friends here, Mr. Rockefeller
an.l Mr. Earllng expressed themselves
as- greatly surprised at the beauty of
the Olympic peninsula and the evident richness of the country which
some day will be opened up by a railroad lino from a point near Port
Townsend to Port Angeles, Lake Crescent and the country westward.
Mr. Earllng told of the surprisingly
mountain?
ito Sol Due Hot Springs. It was raining when the party reached there last
Tuesday night and darkness had fallen. Emerging from the dense woods
the visitors came into a big clearing
in the center of whicli was the magnificent new hotel, brilliantly Illuminated with electric lights from cellar
to roof, and wtthln was waiting a
rteaming bot banquet sueh as Mr.
Failing declared It would be hard to
duplicate anywhere.'

and Mr. Rockefeller, with other members of the party, spent Ih Inspecting

turn trip gave tbe financiers and railroad offlcla's a good chance to see
something of the vast timber re

Peaceful and picturesque cemetery
here on the banks of the White Mu I
river, lhe body of a victim of the ter-
rlb'e Titantic disaster was laid to re3t

the Ill-fated hundreds who went down

his membership card ln the Eden
lodte of Foresters. Mr. Hickman
went to Em land last December, and
was returning with two brothers and
several other young men who were
intending to make homes for themselves here.

Toronto, May P.���The price of anth-
racite coal to tbe domestic consumer
ln Ontario will be Increased by 25
cent3 per ton. There will be no Increase ln the cost of the commodity
to the dealera. Of tho additional 25
rents rer ten which tbe consumer will

This stuitlinrr���not to sa" cheerful
���information was vouchsafed to the
Ontaiio public by Mr. :M. K. Cowan,

Mr, Cowan represented the members

��'nn who refused to co-operate ln the
"deal," as the counsel described lt
Ever Elnce 1903, according to the
���tilmofit pathetic tale told to the commissioners by rej resentntlves of the
railways, these corporations have
been delivering anthracite to the
whole of western and southern Ontario at sucb a low rate that "the business has not been remunerative." As
a result of this harrowing state of affairs, the companies. Jointly and sev-'
erally, proposed to advance the rates
on all anthracite from the Niagara
front'er to Canadian points bv approximately ten cents per ton, the increased tariff starting with today,
May 1, It was the protest of certain
members of the Canadian Retail Coal
Association, represented by Mr. Cowan, whicli brought the matter before

THE   NATIONAL   RESERVE.
Mayor Lee has come to the support
of the new National reserve movement with his usual enthusiasm for
anything that is backed by real Ufa
and sound principles. He has welcomed the suggestion that the roll of
the names of ex-service men be
placed in bis charge, and ordered that
facilities for signing be given in the
office of the city clerk. Already advantage bas been taken of this fact
and names are also coming in to the
memhers of the committee.
In one or two quaiters Ut his been
suggested  that  there   is  a tinge   of
militarism to this movement.     Tl is.
however, is   a    mistake, unless    ttie
power of self-defence be falsely dubbed  militarism.    The sentiment  that
has   ins; ire 1   the   national    reserve
from the x ery start in the o'.d country as well as bere, is purely one of
defence.      The men on  the national
reserve are subject to no rail only to
an invitation, but lt. is   hellevei, we
might  almost have said  it  is known,
that when a crisis comes   every ex-
member  of  hia  majesty's   forces   is
-���only  too anxious  to help bis  country
in  her trouble.    Unorganized and unknown,   however,  they  are   helpless.
The national reserve remedies tbls, it
brings them all  together ln the closest kind    of  organization, and    puts
tbem within  reach  ot the   Invitation
of  the authorities, wbo look in such
times to  tbe  men  of   discipline,  the
men wbo know how to stand together,
to  keep  their heads and  thtir  tempers under every provocation.
In Westminster there are ve-v
many men of military training. Thei;-
records as they were read out at th'-
inauguratory meeting were trumpet
calls to duly In themselves. On tbe
small committee of the United Service Cl tb there are 16 service medals
worn. No bettor material tban this
���exists !n t'e world. At last It his
been hrotif bt to the light. If ever Canada has need of stalwart sons she
knows whe ? s'o can turn t-> find
them, todav In the first national reserve of Westminster, later, we ho~e.

WORK   AT   WESTMINSTER.
The following ls an extract from
4he Contract Record of Toronto, and
gives an Interesting account of some
of the work that has been carried out
iby tbe engineering department ot
Westminster. Tbe article runs as follows ;
"The Improvements carried on al
New Westminster, B. C. during the
~three years that the present city engineer, Mr. .1. W. B. Blackmail bus
���been In oflce, represents approximately |J,559,OQ0. The program for
the present season entails an expenditure of over $1,0(10,0011 and Inclu les a
large sewerage scheme for Sapperton,
if com; rising some forty-five miles of
fcewers, the i a\ ing of about fifteen
miles of streets and the construction
ol a live million gallon reservoir,
The city Pas completed a 26-lnch
water main which is delivering some
aix and a quarter million gallons
daily. Negotiations are now In pro
gress with the municipality of South
Vancouvejr fcr a supply of three million ytillons daily for three years.
Tlie barbor Impiovements scheme
wliich has been complete:1 under tlie
direction of Mr. A. O. I'owell of Seat-

about the fame capacity as the scow.
The scow i.i i.r.ved oat to sea where
the contents are dumped. There are
alx hopper compartments, the doors
of which are opened easily by one
man bj means of the winches shown
on the plan. The doors of one set of
hoppers are operated simultaneously
and arc held in position by small
chains which are releaeed hefore the

For some months the Dominion
.Match Company has been demonstrating Its patented machines ln Vancouver, and at the same time satisfying
the public that it offers one of the
best industrial Investments ln Canada. The machine itself ts a marvel;
Its mechanical perfection, Its speed
and Its elasticity being sucb that It
entirely discounts all other known
methods of producing matches. The
saving as against tho ordinary
mtthods, such as those In use at the
factories of the Eddy Company al
Hull, ts so great that the Dominion
Mateli Company can ship their pro
duce from the l'acillc coast to Ottawa
undersell lhe Eddy product and stiii
make a good profit. This Is a big
claim, bill it is one fully justified bj
the facts of the case. With reference
lo the machine, it should be pointed
out that it has been and ls operated
successfully in the United States, indeed, no further away than Tacoma
so that there is nn element of doubt
or uncertainty as to its efficiency.
Tho Ar.ictican company whicli o; er
ntes It In the States owns the paten:
rights thete, but the Canadian com
pany owns and controls them in Canada, and every person who buys stock
in the Dominion Match company of
Canada acquires an interest In tliose
patent rights. Tiiis means that the
dividends of the Canadian company
will bo swelled by contributions in
the shape of royalty from all subsidiary companies which use the patented machine in Canada whieh will
be erected and operated by tho Dominion Match Compariy. The first
factory Is now being erected at the
en 1 of the city limits of New Westminster, on a fork of the Brunette
river and tbe Eraser, At this point
the company owns five acres of land
most advantageously situated foi
transportation facilities. Th.e C. P. R
und the Great Northern Railways art
adjacent and both will have spurs into tlie factory. Tbe factory la well un
der way, the contractors having reach
cd the second storey and now puttins
up the trusses for the roof. The building is to be completed in August, and
the directors lmve iromlsed lliat the
whole works will be in o;eration by
the first of September. A large

teph Russ, was driven ashore on April
21 laat, Capt. Chaa. Fob* -and thirty-
five members of his crew spent thirteen days on the rocky shores of Chir.
lkof Island until they'were rescued
Saturday morning by the Utile steamship Dora, which sent wireless re-
potts of the rescue to Kodlak, Alaska,
in tlie afternoon, and arrive! at that
port with the rescued crew of the
.losepb Russ later.
The wireless message from the
Dora does not state whether any lives
were lost when the fechooner drove on
to tha lone island seventy miles off
the coast of th? Alaskan leninsula,
but indicates that the Joseph Russ
Is a total loss.
According to the Dora's wireless,
the Russ went ashore April 21. The
schooner sailed from Seattle April 7,
bound for Lost Harbor, In Behring
Sea, just beyond L'nimak Pass, where
she would make her headquarters and
take water during the season's cod-
fishing in Behring Sea.
Chirlkof Island is better known to
ol 1-tlme navigators of the Nortb Pacific as Ukomak Island, and lies about
seventy miles southwest of Kodlak Ts-
land.
The north and northeast sides of
the Island form a sheltered harbor
where vessels occasionally put in dur
ing had weather, but the place ia uninhabited and is as wild a spot as '
there is along the coast of tlie Alas- ,
kan peninsula.
No vessels pass   that   way except
the fishing craft In  summer, and tbe i
little   mail   steamship   Dora,   which j
makes her monthly trip from Seward;
to I'nalaska In all weathers, hurrying
from   shelter  to   shelter during   the |
wild   winter  months   as  site   follow:-'j
the most northerly winter steamship
route In the world.   Judging from the!
date of tier wreck, the Joseph   Russ
made a fairly fast voyage from Seat
tie northward and  wa- dashed on rti
ChlrtkOf   Island  either  in  a  storm  ov
during a dark night, when her skip
per was off ids reckoning.
Tiie Btory of tiie shipwreck, the es-
'���ape of some or all of the WOW, and
f'eir herdihtps duiing the thirteen
days sicnt on the island, remains to
be told.
The Joseph Russ was a three-mast
ed schooner, owned by the  Robinson
I Flafe'    Company.'   of    A nucorrns.    Bhe
brought   a   cargo   of salt    from    San

Eight more teams rolled ln the Exchange cup tournament yesterday, but
only one of the lot came anywhere
nei.r the mark set by the Chamberlin
team on the previous day, Walsh and
Sloan shaking up the wood for a total
of 1158, Just 13 pins shy of the high
scoie.   Ycsteiday's scores:
In the Orkney Islan'�� the bride has
no faith in this rhyme, for she
chooses Friday for her bridal dav,
taking Thursday aa next best, providing the moon Is waxing towards full.
But she considers lt very unlucky to
change the day once It has been selected, Most brides are of tho same
opinion on this point, however.
"Happy is the bride the sun shines
on" Is a prophecy that came to us
from the coast of Wales many years
ago. There the mists blow In from
the sea and ma! e davs of sunshine
rate events. TI1113 the bride on whom
the sun rblnes considers herself specially blessed.
"Happy is tho wooing that is not
long a-doing," says an old proverb, and
a courtshiT) extending over a year before culminating in marriage ls considered a particularly bad omen for
the future happiness or the bride.
The bride who is at all superstitious will not dress herself entirely
until the time for the ceremony, anil
she will not allow a maid to assist in
pinning on the Irldal veil. This service must be performed by the bridesmaid's mother.
To avoid being ruled with a rod of
iron by her future husband the bride
must put on her right shoe first when
dressing for the wedding.
To be first In ber husband's affections she must put her tight glove
on first.
Considerate brides wear as many-
pairs of garters as they bave bridesmaids, as it Is considered very lucky
for a maid to receive as a gift a garter tliat was worn b.v a bride.
The cautious bride remembers a'so tbat she must not allow her future
husband to see her in her bridal attire until she meets blm before the
altar. To do this is supposed to Invite all sorts of bad luck.
Very few brl les could be persuaded
to go to the altar without complying
witli the old proverb about "wearing
something old. something new, something borrowed and something blue."
Some bi Ides observe the custom of
flinging the bouquet among he"- bridesmaids. She who catches It ls de
stined to te the net bride.
The wedding ring must not be tried
on before the cereironv. neither murt
It e"er be taken off afterwards.
Italians, as well as manv ether nationalities, permit no wed ling gif's
that are sharp or pointed. In this
connection is another supersition with
almost universal observance, the custom that the bride must not accept a
7ift of a knife or a pair of scissors or
an rt bins sharn from her lover without giving a pin or some other article
In exchange, lest tbeir love be cut
asunder.
Showering the bridal couple with
rice is nn ancient custom and is observe! In most countries. Tying an
old shoe to tho cnrrlape or train on
which the pair depart ls considered
essential to tbe good luck ot the
couple.

WESTPHALIAN HAM.   ~
Famous German  Dish Gees Through
Many   Process*}.
The fords that come to our table
every day have seldom any further
interest fcr us than that they are
rooked well, correctly flavored snd
touch the itchy spot in our appetites.
Many of the tastiest morsels we eat
have a long and interesting history
before reaching us and the curious one
would tind much of interest if he were
to trscc the record of his favorite dish
tr> i l start.
WeMphalian ham, the famous German delicacy, goes through many peculiar processes before it comes to the
table. It gets its piquant taste by
tbo use of juniper berries i.i smoking
the meat.
The carcasses are cut in such a way
a-, to retain tha whole hem bone together with the hip. The hams are
then rubbed thoroughly with a solution of 100 pounds of salt to one pound
of saltpetre, when they are placed on
cement floors or in vats and thickly
flrewn with suit. Tliey are allowed to
lie in tbis solution for a peiiod of two
weeks and then placed in another receptacle with a 22 per etit. solution
of brine. They remain in this solution
for a period of Id days, their position
being change from day to day so
that those being on the J|ottom are
brought to the top. On the ex pi ration
of 18 day* tliey are removed from the
bmne and packed one upon the other
in a-cool, dry cellar for fmr weeks,
during which time they are supposed
to ripen���that is. to become tender
and take on color. They are then
cleaned with a stiff brush in lukewarm
water and allowed to soak in fresh
water for twelve hours. They are
then ready for the smokehouse.
The smokehouses consist sometimes
of two, and sometimes of three stories, the fire being kindled in the lowest
and the meat hung in the second and
third, to which the smoke ascends
through holes in the flooring. West-
phalian hams are invariably smoked
over a bright flre made of beech wood
only, except that juniper twigs and
berries are constantly thrown on the
fire. Beech wood sawdust is strewn
over the lire in case it becomes too
strong. Tbe smoking proco3s requires
os. an average about eight days.

Although coffee now commands the
highest prices ln years, a further ad
vanfo in imminent, according to local
i ousters, wtto declare that matters
lune come to such a pass that they
are not getting back a new dollar for
an old one at the present selling
prices, lt is claimed that green coffee costs 10 cents a pound more than
lt did three years ago, while in that
period the cost to the retailer has
been increased only 5 cents. .The
roasters bave been slow to raise the
price to the distributors, because
they had reason to suppose that tbe
sharp advance in wholesale prices
would bo only temporary, and lhe>
feared a serious curtailment of consumption if the pi ices to the consumer went up too rapidly.
"The advance in wholesale pi Ices,
however, has proved far more permanent than expected, and there is so
little in sight to suggest any relief
that the roasters have only one of
two courses to pursue, either to go
out of business, as, indeed, several
have in the past year, or get prices
for t!;eir goods that will net them
some profit. If the retailer Is obliged
to pay more for cofiee, lt ls only natural that higher prices wlll be demanded lrom the consumer. Coffee,
which used to retail for 35 cents a
pound, should now bring 45 cents,
and goods that a few ;ears ago sold
at 22 cents, should bring 30 to 32
cents to cover the ln wholesale
prices.
"It should not be understood   that
coffee is at all scarce;  indeed, there
is plenty of coffee In the world, but
almost two-thirds of the total supply
is held under the valorization scheme
and Interests   friendly to   those   behind that plan, which has for its principal end the maintenance of coffee i
at a hij-h price.   The present world's!
supply of coffee Is about 500,000 bags i
l:eld   by   the   vaioiization   interests,
wblle In Brar.il there are about 2,500,-1
000 bagB more, which are practically |
kept out of the channels of trade because the owners  ask  more   money
than   the   coffee    is   actually   worth.
Thus something like 7.000,000 bags of
coffee are kept oft   the  market, and
there Is only a floating supply of approximately 6,000,000 ba.<js.
"The owners of the larger part of
Ihe available supply are In a position

by a surtax, or an export duty on all
coffee exported ln evcess of 10,000,000

Master of the Household.
His ordinary duties consist in detailing the footmon fo duty at the

way, addressed by ail members of tiie j hair, to prevent it from losing its color
Household as "Sergeant"���is usually | and lustre, is just as important as to
care for teeth to keep them from discoloring. Why spend money for cosmetics and creams to improve the complexion, and yet neglect your hair, when
gray hair ia oven more conspicuous and
suggestive of ago than wrinkles or a
poor complexion? Of the two, it is
easier to preserve the natural color and
beauty of the hair than it is to have
a good complexion.
All that ia necessary is the occasional
uue of Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy, a preparation of common garden Sago nnd Sulphur, combined with
other valuable remedies for dry, harsh,
faded hair, dandruff, itching scalp and
falling hair. After a few applications
of this simple, harmless remedy, your
hair will gradually bo restored to its
natural color, in a short time the dandruff will be removed, and your hair
will no bnger come out but will start to
grow as Nature intended it should.
Don't neglect your hair, for it goes
further than anything else to make or
mar your good looks. You can buy
this remedy at any drug store for
fifty cents a bottle, and your druggist will give your money back if you
are not satisfied after using. Purchase a bottle today. You will never
regret it when you realize the difference it will make in your appearance.

At one o'clock ball the staff of footmen come off duty for dinner, and
go pn duty again at two, when the
other half conic ofl duty until three.
Wben the footmen c< me on duty tluy
must report themselves to tbe Ser-
geant.
The Sprjioant Footman has to look
after tbe footman accompanying a
royal visitor, allot tbem rooms in
the servants' apartments, arrumje
whether tbey are to "mess" witb the
royal servants or by themselves���a
matter left usually to tlie choice ol
tbe visiting servants���and settle precisely the hours at which tliey will
be in attendance on tlieir royal master and mistress. Supposing, Ior example the footmen of a visiting royalty desires to be freed Irom attendance between three and six in the
afternoon, tiie Sergeant Footman
would have to detail a certain number
ol the palace footmen to take their
place during the��b hours.
At Ruckinaham Palace tlie electric
bells in any of tiie royal visitors'
rooms can be directly connected with
any of tlie servants' rooms. Tbis is
done by means of what is called a
transfer switchboard, which is placed
in the Serjeant Footman's ollice. Ou
the switchboard are marked tbe number.! of ail the r iyal visitors' apartments, and opposite these are the
numbers of the servants' rooms, from
1 to 100.
Now, supposing tbe Kaiser were to
use Room No. -1 in the royal visitors'
suite of rooms for a bedroom, as be
usually does and bis pergonal valet
were to occupy No. 30 in the servant-'
rooms, the Serjeant Footman would
connect these two rooms on fan
switchboard, so tbat when the Kaiser
touched Lis bell it would ring tbe beli
in Room 30.
The Sergeant Footman and one < f
his assistants always travel with the
King. The former occupies a compartment next to the r. yul saloon,
and acts as attendant to his Majesty
daring the journey. Among his duties
the Sergeant has to see that Buckingham Palace is kept prop fly lighted.
The electric liglit in all tiie corridors at Buckingham Palc"o must be
switched on at a certain hour every
day.  that varies, of  cour-c.  ���veordinsr

Damp SMt Before Rain.
Very few persons know that when
the salt gets damp it is either be^au-e
it is too near the rea or because
it is going to rain. It is very hard
to keep the salt cellar dry at tlie seashore, \ as there is so much moisture
in the air all the time, but in other
places it Is usually a sien of rain
when the salt gets damp. Things that
help themselves to the water la the
nir are called "deliquesrent,". and sail
is one of Ihem. When water is in
thr air in the form of ga< it sometimes
becom? too plentiful for the air to
hold, and then we get what i* called
"pracipitation," or rain. But iona before the water vapor in the air is
heavy enough to fall in rain there
is enough of it to spare to make salt
damp.
Whan  Robespierre Was "Stung."
Under the terror Robespierre used
to plav a neaceful game of chess at
(hs Cafe Rpjenc?, and the story is
told of a youth who once challenged
him and beat him twice. Robespierre
after his deboat asked how much he
owed, no stakes having beon previously fixed. The supposed y.uth, who
in reality was a girl in man's clotne6,
presented an order for the release of
her lover from prison, and Robespierre signed it. Napoleon Bonaparte
during his consulship was seen at the
famous cafe, but he showed himself
no tactician at chess.
No  Fear of Thievrj.
Some years ago. a London merchant
sen', a car<?o of goods to Constantinople. Alter the sul>ercargo saw the
b-.les and box ) safely landed he inquired where they could be stored.
"Leave them here���it won't rain
to-night," was the reply.
"But I dare not leavo them thus
exposed. Some of the goods might
be  stolen,"  said   the  supercargo.
The Mohammedan merchant burst
into a loud laugh as he replied:
"Don't be alarmed. There isn't a
Christian within fifty miles of here."

Polar Bear Caught Cold.
There seems to be something inconsistent about tlie idea of"a polar bear
extracting a bad cold in midwinter.
but that i* exactly whst happened recently. Moreover, the cold grew worse,
pneumonia set in and Vi animal
died. This waa in the famous zoological gardens at London. A postmortem examination showed that
pneumonia was tlie cause of it.
At first sight it would appear unnatural that natives of the polar regions should succumb to the cold of
warmer countries. In the Arctics
colds and pneumonia are extremely
rare. The poor bear in captivity was
sadly handicapped, however, and tbe
comparatively warm winter to he
spent in a nice comfoitable den in
the zoo contained more dangers of
colds for him than he would have
found splashing about in icy water
and sleeping on icebergs and in snow
drifts in the Arctic regions. When
winter approaches polar bears in tlieir
native haunts choose some sheltered
spot, make a burrow in the snow and
pass into a state of hibernation. Iu
captivity the bears do not hibernate,
but remain as active as in summer,
"inline out to feed and moving about
���*.*:.. if shut in their dens. A more
aeriiiu. difference is the absence of
microbes in high latitudes.
