HOW TO  PRAY.
Rev. H. Wilson, Pasadena, Preached
at Cathedral.
Rev. II. Wilson, of Pasadena, was
the preacher at the cathedial last
evening. Prayer, and how we should
pray, was the burden of his remarks,
based upon second chapter St. Luke,
"Lor.l, teach us to pray���when ye
pray say Our Father."
Man's ���ability to pray divide.! hlm
from the animal cieatlon. ln spite
of thc wandering which afflicted bo
many who tiled to pray theio was
hope for them by thc fact that tliey
did knoiv that they wandered. To
kneel was to place one'B body in 8
position of humility and was conducive to one's soul humbling Itself
before God.
One should pray about tiio things
one thinks mOFt iihout. What we cannot pray about, ls against God. Rev.
Mr. Wilton concluded with au allusion to the mest efficacious form of
prayer In the Sacrament.

DECORATED   AUTO   AWARD.
Miss Lavery deceives First Prize���Mr.
Guttridgo Second.
Ii is a matter of much gratification
to the May Day committee that so
manv of the citizens who own automobiles responded to tlie invitation
to turn o.:t and take part in the oar-
ade on May Day. Nearly all of tliose
theie lepiesented were decorated for
the occasion, and the publicity com-
nlttce which was appointed to adjudi-
cate thereon, had a very strenuous
tir.-e in settling the matter.
The cup was, however, finally
awarded to Mlss Lavery's charmingly
decorated car. Second and third
places were allotted to Mr. W. Gutt-
rldge and Mr. W. Gilford, respectively.
The presence of some ultra-smart
Individual driving a car pioclalmlng

only feature to attract adverse comments In an event which was purely
designed for the pleasure of the children.
SUMMER WEATHER LOADS
B. C. E. R. INTERURBAN CARS
The summer weather yesterday attracted a large crowd to the Fraser
valley, unusually heavy traffic bein';
bandied on the B. C. E. H. Some fair
bns'iets were reported by the piscatorial e'.ithusiastii, although thc recent
worn, weather has caused the snow
on the mountains to melt, making the
waters too muddy for any record
catches. A series of mishaps befell
several of the electric cars In opera-
tlon, no leBS than four of the Inter-
urban and one of the city lines complaining of Internal trouble which
necessitated their being removed to
the car barns for repairs. Traffic on
the Burnaby Lake and Eburne lines
became so heavy at times that the
company was forced to place the
multiple-unit trains on th�� run, this,
being about the first time of the two
car trains being used on these rapidly
growing brunches of the system.

Insurrectos     Admit     Retreat     After
Twelve    Hours    Hot Fighting���
Ten Cannon Abandoned.
At federal front, Conejos, Mexico,
May 12.���Twelve hourB of brisk fighting on the deBOit plains 300 miles
south of the American border, be
tween a force of five thousand rebels
under General Orozco and an equally
strong body of federals under General
Huerta, resulted today in a decided
advantage to the government.
The fighting was beyin at daybreak
and at nightfall the sandy mesas between here and Vermo, 14 miles
noith, wheie the insurrectos were
gradually forced back, were covered
with dead and wounded. Nearly five
hundred are believed to have been
killed and wounded on both sides. A
courier brought the information that
General Trucy Aubert, the dashing
federal commander, had been shot ln
the leg.
Tbe retels abandoned ten cannon
and much ammunition in their retreat.
General Joap.;in Tellez, who had
been stationed In the rear of Huerta's
vanguard, at noon was sent around
to the eastward to flank the rebels
and cut off their retreat. Tonight federal headquarters assert the rebels
are completely sunotinded an.i that
the second day of fighting will prove
equally decisive.

Prayer Book.
After an extended tour of Eastern
Canada an.l the Kootenays, his lordship the Bishop of New Westminster
leached home at fi o'clock last night,
in time to take part In the evening
service at the cathedral.
The bishop left heie.on Easter Mon
day, April 8, and spent the following
Sunday at Cobalt and Haileybury,
visiting his sister, and paying calls
on many old friends. Development
has gone ahead veiy fast in that part
of Northern Ontario, and one may
now ride on the electric car between
the two cities named. Haileyburv,
on the shores of Lake Temiskaming,
is more than ever a resort f;om the
bustle of the mines of the sister city.
The next night found his lorishlp In
Toronto, where lie attended a meeting
of the sub-committee which has in
charge the levision of the Prayer
Pook. and which took place that
evening in St. Ja.- es' cathedral
school house. Several committees
are at work on thh matter, and will
be doing so for the next thiee years,
drafting a revision in readiness for
the general svnod of the church which
will be held at Vancouver in 1914.

Mr. William A. Pinkerton, head of
the famous detective agency, visited
Westminster on Saturday afternoou
and had a long chat with Chief Bradshaw, the two going round the cit'
together ln an automobl.t. Mr. pinker
ton has come west on his annual tou
of inspection.
The detective is a smallish man
with JittJo bullet head and a livelv
talker. Ho was very enthusiastic
about the Bank of Montreal robbery
case and was convinced tliat Lean
and McNamara would be extradited
He was also confident that the two
other robbers whom he believes implicated in the ciime will shortly be
brought to justice. -The getting ot
the men is onl.v a matter of detai:. We
know them well," he said. Dean will
be extradited on the charge of robbing the bank and McNamara on the
charge of stealing Mr. Trapp's automobile.
Mr. Pinkerton told the chief all ot
what he had told the newspapers in
Vancouver. 'The money that was
taken from the bank, to our minds, ls
almost intact and lt is probably some
wheie in this vicinity," he said.
He stated that only ten men on the
continent were capable of pulling off
the job; it was not the work of ordinary yeggmen. These sufficiently experts were narrowed down to flve
with the result that McNamara and
Dean are now ln custody.
The chaiacters of the two men now
in the toils weie graphically described by the detective. McNamara is of
a very smooth gentlemanly addi ess,
while Dean is the man who does the
work, an expo; t mechanic, and a surly I
one at that. Mr. Pinkerton dsnled
the report that eitiier of the men ha:t
confessed.
Before leaving Westminster ths detective expressed a hope that he
would meet the chief again at the

Winnipeg,    May    12.���Immigration
from the U. S. A. into the prairies is
creating   records,   again    this    year.
American  farmers are  pouring over
the boundary and are bringing   their-
horses, catties and goods with  them
In great quantities.    The  figures for
the Immigration via  Manitoba ports;
of entry during Apiil are 3880 souls.
With  them  there came 3213 horses,.
817 cattle, sr,d 585 carloads of effects,
a toial value of $692,371.
During the same month last year'
not half this number of immigrants,
entered, but they brought with them
a somewhat larger percentage of
goods per capita. The immigrants
numbered 1479 and the value of tbeir
possessions amounted to the big
figure of 5452,930.
Extraordinary activity prevails In;
the laPe shipping trade. All boats are
chartered either for the wheat or ore
carrying trade. There is plenty or
business in sight for the whole season which will be one of the busiest
on recoid.   .

EIRSr STEP EOR
DIOCESE SYSTEM
Result of Report    of   Committee
General Conference of Methodist
Episcopal Church.
of
Minneapolis, Minn., May 12.���What
is considered by many Methodists the
llrst step toward a diocesan system in
the church is embodied in the first report of the committee of the general
conference of the Methodist Episcopal
church.
The report which' probably will be
presented tomorrow divides, it is said,
the bishops of the church group and
the conferences of the church into
four zones a charge of the conference
who have official residences ln those
four flones n charge of the conference
therein continuously quudrlenlum.
According to the renort the resident
bishop shall have charge of all conferences contiguous to his residence
except when a bishop comos to preside at an annual conference, when
the latter will have charge of the conference for one month before und one
month after the session, when the
conference automatically reverts to
the resident bishop.
Tlie committee on temporal economy probably will iccommend the
establishment of a commission, consisting of four bishops, three ministers and eight laymen, to handle all
funds ordinarily turned Into the
boards. The commissions also
arrange the apportionment and
have in charge the division to
church boards when collected.

LOCAL MANAGER TAKE8
POSITION WITH COMPANY
Mr. D. Roy Donloy, formerly local
manager of the Bank of Vancouver, is
in Seattle on a business trip in connection with a large financial company Just organizing to start business
In British Columbia, with headquarters In Vancouver, of which concern
Mr. Donley has accepted the Vancouver management. Mr. Donley, who
hus been manager for the Ban't Of
Vancouver here since the branch was
opened, will take a two months vacation b<'fore actively entering upon bis
new duties.
at night, a week later saw him
hurtling out west a-,ain, and stopping
off at B. andon his lordship had the
pleasure of preaching once more in
his old parish church of St Matthew
in the morning, visiting the two mission churches of St. George and St.
Mary In the afternoon and evening,
both of which churches he built himself.
He arrived in Nelson on Wednesday, the last day of April, and attended a meeting of the executive
committee of the diocese of Kootenay.
and on the following day preached at
the opening of the annua) meeting of
the Women's Auxiliary of that dio-
rese. This event was a most successful one, both in point of attendance
and-in the business accomplished.
Leaving Nelson last Filday wee'e,
the bishop visited In the order named.
Phoenix, Grand Forks, Rossland and
Trail, holding confirmation services.
The Journey up the Arrow lakes swallowed up the following Monday and
Tuesday and his lordship then toured
through Mara, Enderby, Armstrong
and Vernon, meeting the church committee at the latter place, and consulting with that body as to a successor for the Rev. C. A. Seager, who Is
resigning that parish In ,order to accept the prlnclpalship of Mt. Mark's
Hall, Vancouver.
On Saturday morning last the
bishop left Vernon, and arriving at
Mission City yesterday morning, held
a confirmation service there, and also
officiated at the service of the benediction of the new bell. This was
quite an unusial and picturesque
event, the blessing of the bell in the
church tower.
Church's Growth.
"In every parish," snld his lordship," the work of the church is most
encouraging, tbe number of parish-
loners has increased immensely owln-.
to the rapid immigration, and church
committees and Incumbents alike are
energetically trying to cope with the
fresh derna n's made upon them. The
parish of Vernon has made wonderful
strides In a year, having increased
the stipend of Its clergyman by $600.
as well as making provision for a
curate. This ls now the largest paris1!
���In the diocese of Kootenay and the
people of the town generally regret
exceedingly the coming departure of
Mr. Seager."
Bishop for Kootenays.
The bisbop added that be expected
that this would be the last season
that he would have to take the general continuations in the diocese of
Kootenay, as he expected that there
would be a new hlshon appointed
early next year for that diocese. With
help promised from England the
necessary funds would be forthcoming around January 1 next.
His lordship was looking forward
to a busy time during the next week
or two, as preparations have to be
male for the synod which meets In
Vancouver during the first week ln
June.
He expected the arrival in the cltv
immediately of the new incumbent of
St Mary's, Sapperton. In the person
of Rev. Prank .Plaakett, who comes
from the diocese of Quebec and !b a

Seattle,     May    12.���Announcement,
that the port commission intends to >
establish and operate a terminal rail- ���
way system on the h&rbor front wss.
contained    in    a    tentative    answer
framei   by   Gen.  H.  Iff.  Chittenden,
chairman, to the list cf nine questions
sent in by Charles Fte.nn   and C. P.
Spooner, local representatives of th*-;
Paciflc erminal Company.
The information ls in reply to the ���
last of the questions as to whether ���
the port commission  would   aid the -
Harbor Island terminal concern In securing fianchises for its terminal railways.
The answer framed by Gen. Chittenden was in substance that the commission wouid do all in its  power tor
aid the company iij securing   proper-
terminal facilities, but with the understanding that the port commission
Intends establishing a system of terminal railways itself, or, at least, to
control and operate the main service-
tracks to the docks.
Confer With   Members   Of   Chamber.
The answer as framed by Gen. CWt-
tenden were considered at a meeting.
of tbe commission, participated in by
Piesident J. D. Lowman, of ttoe New
Seattle Chamber  of Commerce, and
Judge Thomas Burke.   The latter two��
were instrumental ln opening negotiations with the Paciflc Terminal Company, which proposes to erect a terminal plant on Harbor Island similar to ���
the Bush terminals in New York, tn- ���
eluding manufacturing establishments-.,
piers, warehouses and sidetracks.
At the end of the conference Mr-
Lowman and Judge Burke told ther
commissioners that the tentative answers with reference to the questions;
of deferred rentals and leases on the--
piers and docks probably wonld result In finally ending the possibility
of leasing (o the Pacific Terminer
Company. They urged that either a.
direct answer ln the negative be glvenr
or that the commisslnoners frame a
reply that would leavo a possibility
for further uegotlatlons.
Commissioners Chittenden an*
Remsberg promised to consider the*
matter, and the final diaft of questions will be framed nnd passed upon at a special meeting at' Z o'cIocK.

STATUES OF DUMAS
TRINITY OCCUPY SQUARE
Paris, May 1-.���The Place Male-
sherbes will soon be unique in the
world b.v having the statues of the
Dumas Trinity, consisting of Dumas
Pere. Dumas Fils and Dumas Grand-
pere, writes A. W, L'Amruveux. The
statue of the grandfather is about to
be reaied on its pedestal, and the history of the gtand old Mestizo general
is one of the most curious ever recorded. We have all the details of it
in the memoirs of Alexandre, but the
story seems like a chapter from the
Trols Mousqnetaires.
The adventurous general began hits
caieer some twenty years too soon, othe would surely have keen one of Napoleon's most distinguished lieutenants. He was born at Jeremias, in
ths Island of San Domingo, his father
being the Marquis de la Pallleterie,
and his mother a native halT-breed. He
wus sent to his studies t:> Bordeaux,
but enlisted with t'ie dragoons of the
Queen's Regiment, and started on a
life of wonderful adventures. The
story is told that be once escaped
fiom an ambuscade of sixty Tyrolese,
and Instead cf being captured himself,
he diove the thirteen of them prisoners to his o.vn camp. His promotion
was so rapid that he was soon made
colonel, nnd became brigadier-general
before he vvas HO years of age. lie
vvas ;i powerfully-built man, and conic'
stand any amount nl fatigue, and
when be returned from the campaign
of Egypt, after having been general
in command of the army of thc Blast-
em Pyrenees, be aiiEweied to the
question, as to where he had been
wounded: "Look, and .vou will (ind
marks all over me."
i.'ven ufter iwo years' of Imprisonment in a (lar . hole tit Naples, tbi
general still had strength enough to
survive ronrp .vears on his return to
France, tu many and to settle at Vil-
lers-Cotteret8. The day model of
the statue was made half a generation ago, when a committee headed
by General Fe.rier, :leci;ied to have
it cieeted in the same square as that
in which the statues of the son and
(randson had already found a place.
Moncel, the sculptor, had. at the suggestion of tbe committee, tepresente.l
him in full uniform, with a feather in
his hat; but when the gandson sa>v
it he objected. He said: "You must
represent t'ie general as he was in
life," und he is. therefore, shown at;
he apt eared in haft'e, just after picking up a musket, and with his shaggy
hair flowing in the wind. When the
three statues are finaily in place It i3
proposed to change the name cf the
Place Malfssherbes, and to call it the
Place des Trois Dumas.
An  Artistic  Thief.
If  the  Palis  police have  been  unable    to trace    tne "Gioconda," they
have  at least laid  hands on a  man
named  Rene Ferrand, who seems to
know where it is.    He says that she
has taken a trip fcr her health across
the  seas, and  is now  in the  United
States.   More t!:an this he does r.ct
wish to say, and, in fact, he regi ets
tliat lie said that much.   Ferrand is a
particular virtuoso in church and ran-
--eum thefts.   He has heen making his
living out of it for the last ten yeais
and \\a__  \b quite aBtonlahed  to be toflC
I that lt Is an Illegitimate    profession
He had a free entry by  night  to ail
the museums and churches in France.
How he worked it is a secret of his
own.   but   once   inside   the   churches
and museums ho took away whatever
ol-jects of art pleased him, and even
if they were worth five thousand dollars  he did not hesitate to sell tliem
for ten cr twenty to tie nearest an-
tiquary, to whom he always stated a
false o;igin of the object.
This man is alleged to have raided
numerous churches in France. Belgium, Germany and liollani. Only a
few of his explol s are the carrying off
of a Cothic group from a church at
Gemenich, near V'ervieis, and two fine
tajestries from tlie cathedral of Xan-
ten, ln Germany, wotth $^0,000, for
which an antiquary gave him ?ii00.
Ferrand also left traces of his passage at Stavelot. Cambral, Rheims and
Nevers. He was accompanied latterly by a young woman known as "La
Relle Germaine," and both passed as
M. and Mme. I.etellier. The "Relle
Germaine" now iegrets ever having
joined him, as she has also been arrested, and laments the d.vs when
she was a happy dress model ln the
Rue de la Paix, when she had no
cares and no wot ries, and spent her
whole day putting on and taking off
silk and satin dresses, in which she
felt tliat she looked so beautiful.
"I wish 1 were hack again in the
Paix!" she exclaimed. 'How foolish I
was ever to leave it." She traveled
about with Ferrand, They took a
handsome flat In the vicinity of the
Ruttea Chaumont, and for a while all
seemed to go well. Ferrand constant
ly brought home beautiful works of
art and quaint oil Images. When
die aiil.ed about them he smiled, und
said it was no business of hers, and
that 'key were for the dealers, Roth
weie ai rested at the end of last (reek,
after they had attempted to escape to
another flat In Vineennes. Ferrand
had two immense crates lull of works
of art. One of these crates has been
found by the police, but the other is
missing.
He Said Too Much.
It. has now turnel out that lon; before his urrest, Kciranl. wlio perhaps
knew moie than he Intended to say,
had dedai ed that he knew where the
Gioconda was, and that the picture
was in America. I knov it," lie mid
to the people where he was living,
antl the police aie no,v considering
whether it was a mere boast oi
whether he really did know.
M. Cochon, Ihe anostle of tree
lodgings for the destitute, lias distin-
j.uishe 1 himself further by attempting to lodge a mother nnd her flve
children at the Mlnlstiy of Justice,
because the father, who had been arretted during a demonstration, was
In prison. It wus in the Place Re-
publlqiie. while attending one of the
meetings of M. Cochon, that the
father wus arrested. He had been
given notice by Ills proprietor for
liaving heen too demonstrative, and
he was sentenced to two weeks' Imprisonment. Wliile he was in prison
nn order for his eviction was grunted
and carried out. M. Cochon was In-
forme I and he and Ills friends went
lo tha  res-tie of the evicted family.
Reading all the furniture cn handrails, Ihey pio.eeded to the Mlnistry
of Justice, in the Pluce Vendome. M.
I ociicn argued that the Minister of
Justice by permitting the sentencing
of the father should five the rest of
the family a free lodging at the ministry, but two policemen at the door
turned tlie intruders out, and took the
children to the police station, where
they and their mother were provided
for.
Declines   High   Honor.
A professor of the university is giving a remarkable example to the
world by gently but flimjy declining
v. decoration of the Legion of Honor,
which his friend, M. Gulst'bau, Minister of Public Instruction, is offering
him. The minister and the professor
met a few days ago. They had been
students together at the Lycee of La
Reunion,'and hnd not seen each ether
for years. Surprised to see his former fellow-student who had become
one of the distinguished piofessors of
the University, without a decoration,
M. Guist'huu proposed to decorate
him on the spot. The professor immediately declined, saying that such
an honorable decoration wns reserved
for merit, not for mere friendship,
The minister Insisted and the professor, bearing that in spite of his
modesty the red ribbon was to lie lie-
stowed upen him, went to the iiroctor
of the Faculty to heg him lo inter,
cede with the minister not to decorate liiin. The example, we are assured, is unprecedented,

INSTEAD OF FLANNEL
Virtues of Half Cotton Cashmere Are
Manifold.
"There Is one material." said the
wise house mother, "which to the
modern woman takes tbe place of the
old fashioned heavy flannel for under-
garments nnd even for negligees
without having the dlHtidvnntnge of
bulk nnd a great capacity for shrinkage lf It has lo be sent io the laundry
often. That ls u half cotton cashmere,
which can usually be bought Iu white
and delicate colors for ���>') cents a
yard, yard wide. It washes beautifully and wears so well thut lo put a
little handiwork on lt will prove no
waste of time, wblle tho proportion of
wool In lt gives the needed warmth.
"One of the prettiest*nnd best wearing kimonos I ever had wns made
from lhe hnlf cotton cashmere ln pale
hlue. The color was a trifle more hlue
than I would have preferred ut first,
yet not ut all garish. I trimmed It
with two Inch taffeta ribbon -in the
snme robin's egg tint. It bas done
service for four years, having gone ia
and out of the (ub unnumbered times,
grafting, softer uud prettier���to my
mind���every time. During the last
year It has grown so pale In tint that
I've bnd Mnrgery use nn extrn allow-
nnee of bluing in the rinse water, but
thnt has beeu all It needed to restore
the cbnrming color. When 1 say
'growing softer.' by the way. I mean
ln texture us well as hue.
"For little embroidered underskirts
or combinations I his cashmere is most
desirable, and I have seen a really
French? negligee mnde of the cream
white variety, embroidered with henvy
white and black floss and trimmed
with n heavy creamy lace. Wben I
sny that tbere is almost no 'wear out'
to lt. I mean that to m.v personal
knowledge four years of hard service
from a garment made of it is none too
much to expect."

Ace   cf   the   Ea.th.
Prof. Frank Allen of Manitoba T7ni-
versity, stated in a lecture on "The
Age of the Earth," in Winnipeg that
radium had upset all the theories ou
this subject. "Lord Kelvin," said he,
"who computed that the earth was
20,000.000 years o|d, declared that unless some new way of producing heat
in the earth's surface could be found
hio calculations were correct."
"Such a new way has actually been
discovered- in radium which has the
power of giving out heat without diminishing in weight. One pound of
radium would keep a house warm for
2,000 years. Radium is scattered
throughout the earth's surface, and.
therefore. Lord Kelvin's calculations
are worthless.
"Radium gives off helium, and helium is scattered throughout the
earth's crust." added Prof. Al'eu. "The
amount of helium given off by an actual piece of rock could easily be
measured. Ry comparing tho amount
of radium and of helium in a piece of
rock it would be possible to form an
estimate of the earth's age, and if this
w*r3 done it would be found that tha
earth was over 1,500,000,000 year* old."

GRAND JURY'S PRESENTMENT.
It always seems to ua that the
���Grand .fury's presentment should he
taken seriously and receive due attention from the authorities. The
Grand Jury is composed of n- repic-
���tentative a bod,- of ordinary, everyday citizens us can he found anywhere, and their presentments arc
apt to expiess very exactly Ihe opinions of the general puhlic.
On Saturday the Westminste-
���Grand Jury brought iu its report. At
the rnd of this will he found a complaint that $2.00 a" day is not sufficient remuneration for a juror. Obviously it ls not- Few men in thl?
country are earning ns Hide as $2 a
day, and serving on the jury may
mean besides the loss of time, extia
��xpenfe in hotel bills Rnd other items.
We believe we are right In saying
that in Kngland, where money (has
much greater purchasing power than
in this country, jurors receive one
.guinea a day or slightly over $">. It
would seem then that $5 might be a
reasonable figure'to fix on in this
<:ountry where it would comnensate
most men for the loss of their time
to analeiiuate extent.
Another  noticeable  feature  in   the
���report.was that dealing with the jail.
Some hari things have been said re
'eently by   a Vancouver   judge   aliou!
the Westminster jail, but the jury re
ports it to be runexcellently, its only
fault being its overcrowding aud  thai
van not  be  blamed  on  anything   bul

look, McNeil dealt him a vicious blow
on the head with an Iron rod he had
previously taken from the cot, and
Davis went down like a stricken ox.
McNeil then took his keys and unlocked the cells of his four comrades
and then ran to the door and called
to Guard .Madden outside to come In
at once as Davis had fallen in a fit.
His ruse worked, and his solicitude
for his mate's welfare caused the outer guard to break the rules. As soon
as he opened the door the five convicts rushed nt him and overpowered
him. They quickly stripped the cloth
ing off the guards and two of the convicts donned them.
They then all went, out into the out
er corridor to wait for O'Leary. When
Dr. Phelan came in Jones ftxclalmed:
."Oh, it's the doctor; yell, doo, .we'll
'trouble you for them duds you've got
on." Some time later the doctor and
the two guards were discovered locked in the cell clad only In their underclothes.

CONVICTS' REVENGE.
Escaping    Desperadoes     Planned    to
Beat-Up   Warden.
Kingston. Ont., 'May 12.���At tlie investigation held at.the penitentiary
touching the escape of the four western desperadoes. Jones, Bonner, Kelly
nnd Hrown and Vincent McNeil, of
Wooflfltook, it was stated that part
of the plan of the live was to murder
Deputy Warden O'l.eury. This is according to a statement of a high official in the penitentiary.
O'Leary was one of the officers who
brought the four men down lrom
.Stony Mountain penitentiary, and tvai
almost killed I.v them on the train
when the prisoners attacked their
guards Just outsl 'e of Toronto.
O'Lo&rj I'si'i hn club freely on thai

ed to see him Instead of Dr. Phelan,
the jail physician,
Intended to Kill O'Leary.
All tlie circumstances point to the
fad tbat thev itifen-lcd to kill O'Leary
for they were all waiting in the cuter
��� ���^rriilor of the isolation ward when
the doctor came in. Thnt a guard
disobeyed orders hv golnu to the a'-t-
si-\anre of his mate In daneer seems
to have been the Cause of the escape
of ibe convicts, Two guards go to
tho isolation building together. One
Koes in and the other remains on
'guard at thp door after locking it.
The convicts may assault, or even
murder tlie man who goes In. but they
would be unable to leave the building ber.ausp of the door being locked
and the second man on guard at it
Knowing this the desperadoes used
���*he cunning method to get the second
man to come in and bring the keys
with him.- On Wednesday morning
'Gnards Davis and Madden were detailed to the isolation building, Davis
v.oinu ln and Madden staying outside

FOUND   "LA GIOCONDA."
But    It    Was    Only    Fake���Waiter's
Find.
Paris, May 12.���There was tremendous excitement the other day when
the rumor was spread about that "La
Gioconda" nnd actually been discovered in a very good state of preservation. Where had the missing picture
been found, was the question that was
eagerly asked on all sides.
Why. at a (|uiet little hotel In the
Temple district of Paris, wus thc
ready answer. .Many people in their
delight took the first cab that was
bandy and sped to the Temple quarter without asking any moie ques
tions, quite convinced that they would
discover the street and the house as
soon as they got there. Others, more
ptactical, waited for some particulars
and learned that it was in the Rue du
Vort-Bois, an old street near the
Square du Temple, that the wandering chief d'oeuvre of Leonardo da Vi
nel had found a retreat.
Piovided with this Information,
they repaired to Ihe Metropolitan, anl
were soon on tlieir way to the hotel,
wliich ls a very neat and tiim establishment, cliielly patronized by Italians. There was quite a procession
of reporters and photographers, and
when they Introduced themselves to
the office of the hotel there was a
smiling face to greet them.
It was "La Gioconda," but, alas! of
the plctuie there was none. It was
only a mo'est chomo-lithograph wllich
bad already been smiling at tbe police officials who had preceded the visitors theie, and it Is smiling still.
To describe the disappointment
wbich all callers felt when they perceived that the alleged discovery was
no discovery at all would be no light
matter. It lia 1 best be left to the imagination. Tlie whole district had
been agog for hours, and it is still, as
fresh arrivals are pouring in every
minute.
How did this horrible mistake occur? The answer is very simple. A
iQtel waiter culled at the office of the
Aocal comnitsnary ot pol\c%, ;\n<\, w\v\i
conelderah'e mystery. Informed him
that the missing picture was In a
room occupied by a foreigner. Aware
of the importance of such a discovery,
the worthy official lost no time in pto
ceedine to the house with an escort
of several agents of the law���a wise
precaution in the.-e days of ready ie-
course lo the revolver.
lie entered the office to pscerbiln
the precise room In which the 'Gioconda" was, and there she was. smiling at him so sweetly; but unfortunately, from a chi'o'mo-lithograph which
had heen affixed to a screen.
Some amateurs in their fury accuse
the waiter of having played a practical joke, but the fact is that this was
a case of trop de zele. The poor man,
whose artistic knowledge is of a very
rudimentary kind, had reallv acted in
i oo.l faith, he being under the Impression that tbls was the veritable and
gfnuine "Gioconda," and he is as bit-
te'ly disappointed after his own fashion as anyone else can be.
As for tho house, it has suddenly
sprung into fame, but, as il. has heen
thus besieged from morning to nitdit
the landlord is not inclined to relish
this sort of advertisement.

EXHIBITION GAME UNLIKELY.
Salmon Bellies Not Expected to Meet
Terminals Saturday.
The prospects of the Salmon Bellies
nnd the Minto cup holders nlaying an
exhibition game in Vancouver next
Sat ui day afternoon appear to be very
slim ut the present time.
The V. A. C. team and the Fair-
views play a test game at Recreation
park on that af tet noon to decide whether tiio latter are fast enough to be
admitted to membership ln the %. C.
Amateur Lacrosse league and It ' is
said that Con Jones will order out his
team for a half hour's practice prior
to the amateur game.
Con Jones and Matt Barr arrived
back from the east on Saturday noon.
Newsy Lalonde, the famous gutted
stick artist, whose name has been on
th(> lips of pretty near every lacrosse
fan throughout the Dominion during
lhe past two weeks, blew Into thi
Terminal City early Saturday morning, und turned oi;t for practice witli
tbe rest of the boys that afternoon
With the arrival of Lalonde the lineup of ihe treen shirts Is about complete. Jones having ln all nineteen
players to select from. The Vancouver magnate was not very much im-
pressed with the work of the Torontos
and Tecumsehs, who played an exhibition game while he was In Toronto.

said Con, "have It on all of them and

the picture.
"What a country! How could anyone be happy ln a country where
there ls no rnderstandlng of art.
They have no Idea of art, no sentiment for It, and no desire for lt."
"If we have disappointed the great
performer as an artistic community,"
says thn Johannesburg Star, it ls only
fair to say that he likewise disappointed us as a man of the world and a
good sport.
"It is net our fault If an artist visits
our towns anl particularly Johannesburg, under the Impression that we
are an open gold mine. It has never
been previously impressed upon such
visitors that we have had little more
than a quarter of a century's existence and that we are still ln our artistic swaddling clothes."

the Victoria Wests, In the final game
for the McBride Shield, taking the
game by a score of two goals to nil.
Tl.e Ranchers' victory was a great
suipriee to the Islanders, who having
a lead of one goal from last Saturday's game, were confident In winning the championship of the province. The goal-keeping of Worrall, the
ex-Sunderlan 1 player, was again the
feature of the play, his work between
the posts heing responsible for his
team emerging victorious. Being the

supporters of the Coquitlam aggregation are indeed in a Jubilant mood at
their victory, thus giving them the

Jim Flynn Has Chance.
Jim Flynn, the lecent conqueror1 of
Al Kaufman and Curl Morris, "white

and big fellows, who have never
fought to advantage since being flayed by the Pueblo fireman, reached Plot
Springs last week in company with
Jack Curley, his manager, and prompt
ly began to condition himEfllf for lib
Mg battle with Jack Johnson In La?
Vegas, N. M.. on July 4.
Jim Corbett, who trie J to train Jef
file^ In the ex-champloni's memorable OKht with Johnson at Ren.), wilt
also be one of Flynn's handlers. Corbett made the tijle Eoath with Flynn

The train pulled out of St. Louis
at \i o'clock Friday and th? party ot
pugilistic celebiitles were In I-'lynnV
dressing room until almost midnight.
Then nfter Jim declared It was past
bedtime for him, Corbett and Curley
withdrew to the observation car
where the fight talk wus continued
until daylight. Flynn Is a bright sort

and Corbett made friends of each other in a twinkling, and Gentleman Jim
did not make any bones over the fact
that originally, when the Johnson-
Flynn match was built he refused to
take It seriously. But after he learned from Flynn his plans and ideas,
and discovered that Curley and bis
lluhter mean business, which Is pioved
hy all the theatrical time they have
cancelled nnd the long training trip
they have arranged, Corbett declared
that not only would be be on hand ln
Las Vegas, but that he would show
up early and give Flynn evory assistance he possibly could. Twenty
years ago Corbett surprised the world
by defeating the then Invincible John
L, Sullivan.
"Flynn, I was a bigger longshot
down in New Orleans than you will he
at Las Ve^-ns," stated Corbett. "You
remind me of my old self. Say, Jim,

are not saying much, merely getting

Fourth. It's a ten-day rest for Flynn,
nnd then on to Las Vegas for the real
training period.
since Lloyd's began has
'here heen such a scene as was witnessed on Mondav moraine when the
news of the collision of the Titanic
off the Hanks or Newfoundland, with
an iceberg was announced In var;. Ing
telegrams on Ihe casualty board, says
London Filnday.
The collision of the Olympic In the
Solent, the stranding of the Delhi ofT
fare Snartel. the sinking of the
Oceana off Beachy Heal, all or which
have taken place since Septemher 20,
produced a crowd anrlous to get news
or what hid hanpened. h"t nil these
put together were as nothing compared with the dense mass or underwriters, brokers and thelr clerks which
crowded round the board eairer to
read the yellow flimsies giving the latest news or this Titan of the shipping
world.
Needless to say, the lines taken by
companies and underwriters are commensurate with the she and character of the vessel and her owners, and
the~e was at once a desire on the
part of some with heavy lines who also thought very badly of the tele-
t'rnms, to eet out of some of their lia-
bllity. They were met with a demand or 50 guineas per cent, and even
st C'at rafe a good deal v-sf done by
those anvlotis to cut their loss.
Towards noon, the ,r>0 guinea marke*
being closed, the rate rose to 55 guineas, and e>en 58 was asktd and paid.
M 2 o'clock, no reassuring news having been received, tfu guineas was or-
fered and accepted by a good many
underwriters.
The afternoon dragged its slow
length along amid excitement as intense as prevailed when the first news
reached the 'room.'
Shortly before '1 o'clock a telegram
from the other side Intimated that
The Montreal Sta>" has published

Po sensitive v,.is the state of thc

ttie rate to ?,o fpilneas. and hefore 6
o'clock some of those who had taken
tb" risk earlier in the day at GO
guineas were able to get out at 2f
and even 20 guineas.
On Tuesday morning there was still
i considerable crowd round the cas-
nality board, but It seemed, to the
I raise of inderwriters be it said, to
have interests more of a humanitarian
than of a pecuniary character. So
conflicting was the news early in the
morning that an amount, small no
doubt, was en et ted at 00 guineas.
ROUND THE MESS TABLE
BY  THE   MARTIAN.
The National Reserve movement Is
growing  apace  in  the city.    Over 50
names  have already  been  registered
at the mayor's office, and it ls confidently expected    that the    numher
will  Increase to at least   ten   times
that  amount In  this   district   before
very long.     The movement In  Itself
Implies nothing more than the registration of the names and addiesses of
men who have served in any branch
or the naval or military forces of the
crown, but It Is easily understood that
ln order to be of any practical use to
the   men   themselves, something   further must be done.    The idea which
has been e\olved anl can led into effect  here embraces the formation of
a  "l'nited Service  Club."      By   this
meana lt ls hoped.   Indeed,  arrangements are already under way I understand, to give the members a room or
rooms, centrally located, where   they
can gather together and read the papers, more   especially those  of military interest, play games and talk of
old limes to their heart's content.   It
is also hoped to keep    a legister of
men     seeking  employment  so    that
members   can  mutually  assist    each
other nnd also help all ex-service men
arriving    In thc city to    find  work.
Other schemes of mutual   advantage
will undoubtedly grow out of the idea
as time goes on, and the membership
inei eases an.l those who are at present In charge of the inception of the
club's  affairs are confident that   the
growth is going to he strong rrom the

very much in evidence Just now.   It Is
hard to say what degree of accuracy
they may  be credited  with,  bat one
thing is certain, that is that it would
be the best thing that could possibly
happen.    Competition  is  the  s<��ul or

by the advent of another corps would
Instil fresh  life and energy Into the

Dame rumor is an exceedingly fickle
Jade, but the forthcoming \~islt of the
minister of militia to the city is ominous to say the least.    There Is undoubtedly something wrong with   the
conditions under which the companies
here  are  endeavoring  to  serve  and
Colonel Hughes    doubtlessly realizes
that more can be learned on the spot
in an Interview with the officers in
charge, than years of correspondence
could ever effect.
On Saturday, the 18th Field Ambulance, Canadian Army Medical Corps,
will have their annual inspection in
Vancouver. This unit has been putting in some wonderfully good work
of late. Every Suuday they attend St.
Paul's Hospital for instruction in
nractical surgical and medical nursing. They boast a splendid conceit
tioupe who have been giving several
performances lately, wdth a view to
endowing a ward in that hospital to
be known a3 the "18th Field Ambulance Ward." It is understood that
shortly a performance is to be given
at the New Westminster Opera House
which deserves good patronage.

PADEREWSKI      UNAPPRECIATED.
London, May 12.���Ignace Paderew-
skl, the famous pianist, who has Just
finished a tour of South Africa, complained bitterly, hefore sailing for
Kngland, of the treatment he had received, and announced his Intention
never to visit the country again.
ln un   Interview published   in   the
Victoria, B. C. May 12.���News was
brought by the Sanukl Maru oi rioting against Chinese at Lhassa, capita'
of Thibet, during which many Chinese were roasted alive after an attack on the Chinese quartets in which
manv on both sides were killed and
wounded. The affair followed a statement by a Thibetan lama that Chinese were destined for divine punishment. A fight ensued and the lama
fled to the Sela monastry which was
fired. The Chinese quarters were
tben attacked by angry Thibetans
and many were roasted alive.

A Holiday In Lucan.
In Western Ontario in the village
of Lucan they do not get much excitement save an occasional murder.
Consequently it was something of a
public event when a wheel of fortune man blew into town. He set up
his wheel in front of one of the two
hotels there. In a few minutes tha
proprietor of the other hotel, seeing
the crowd around the opposition hotel,
told his hostler, Jim, to go down and
tell the wheel of fortune man to bring
his wheel up to his hotel. Jim went
down, and a conversation took plate
something as follows-.
"Will you bring your wheel up to
Blank's hotel?"
"Why should I bring my wheel up
there?''
''I tell you to bring your wheel up
to Blank's."
"I'll not move my wheel, I'm doing
alright."
"Well,   you're   gambling,   and  it's
against  the  law,   and   I'll  stop  it,"
which he proceeded to do forcibly.

Sheep For Canada.
Prof. Elliott, the superintendent of
the Canadinn Pacific Railway demonstration farms in Southern Alberta,
purchased, during his recent visit to
England, a small flock of Ezmoor
sheep for breeding purposes. Prof.
Elliott considers that these sheep will
thrive well on the foothills of the
Rocky Mountains, and the experiment
will be watched with much interest.
Prof. Ellio.t was greatly impressed
with the Devon cattle that he saw on
Exmoor, and he msy induce his com-
anv   later on   to acquire a   picked
era. Alberta is an ideal country for

see how seriously the boys take their
work, and one can observe a look on
each face which denotes that the spirit which held firm the British squares
at Waterloo and enabled "Every man
to do his duty" at Trafalgar Bay, is
lust as much Innate in the heart of
every British boy of today as it was
in the days when the history of our
empire was made. It is a far cry
from New Westminster May Day celebration to the bloody fields of our
hard-fought victories, and harder
fought defeats, but I am quite sure
that there was not one old warrior,
who saw the boys marching by, who
did not go home feeling that the soldiers and s:ii!o:s of tomorrow can
well be left to guard the traditions of
those of. yesterday, and to add new
honors to the annals of our race.

Rumors of the formation of another
Starvation In China. '
Our attendant threw open the door
of one home, a sort of le.in-to. There
was no light, no window; after we got
used to the dimness, we saw sitting
on the floor a young girl, wdth a very
attractive face. On the floor in front I
of her was her little child lying on I
the mud floor, sobbing and sobbing. |
For quite a little while we did not sec
any one else in' the room; but soon
over in the corner we saw standing
against the wall a little child of 2%
years. I asked the mother: "Why is
the ohlld crying?" To ask it seemed
almost stupid: but the mother turned
to the leaves on the skhlet and said:
"He won't eat those any longer, and
he Is dying of hunger." It seemed
impossible to pull oneself away from
this really bright young girl under
Buch circumstances as these. Her
husband had gone off, we learned afterward, to get some help from the
station; but still to leave her in that
little darkened room, to starve, made
one feel almost as if I were a murderer. She was takln; lt gently as a
matter or fate, not asking In the
slightest way for any sort of help, hut
answering with a gentle courtesy.

THE OLD-TIME C0W3HY.
He Is a Fast Disippearln} Figure jn
the   Prairie.
A tjentliinan in shaps and a Slet-
sot. hat pushed his whv through the
crowd which lined the bar in the
Alberta Hotel in Calgary the other
day, clinked a spurred heel on the
brass  rail   and  shouted:
"I'm a howling' coyote from the
foothills, and it'n my turn to howi."
An  aproned  bartender was  on  Mie
oint of vaulting' the counter to throw
im outside to howl, when he saw a
twenty-dollar bill flashed before his
eyes.
"I'm howling for a (Irink," explained the stranger. "Bring up tha
bunch."
The bunch approached cautiously,
like horses to au unfamiliar trough.
They were a town crowd, with hard
hn.ts and white collars. When all
haa imbibed to t'.e stranger's "here's
ho," he continued:
_ "Gentlemen, you'll excuse me, but
times have changed. When I first
knew Calgary it was nothing but a
little cow town with a Mounted Police
barracks, Pat Bums and a line of
shacks. Now���well���it's no place for
mo."
The stranger departed. A timid
easterner followed him to the door.
It was a short scene of wliat he had
expected to see acted in the west
every day���a pape out of a book he
had   read  as a  boy.
"Come back and have a drink with
us," coaxed the easterner, as they
st-.od in the street.
"Not there," replied the howler,
"but come with me. I'm not class
for wheat any more."
And thus the east'and tho west got
together, and, ��� ;th their legs under
the same table, as the parable explains, a mighty friendship sprang
up.
It was the tale of the passing of
the fwe range, the charge of the
plow on tho thousands of heads rf
flue fat steers, which, for the past
twenty years, have made Southern
Alberta wealthy  and  famous.
He was an old-time cow puncher,
this westerner. He had come west
when thj west was a bnvy, had seen
it grow and expand in its youth and
vigor; and then, when the prairie became filled with so many voices that
his own old voice was as a whispering wind, had retreated to tho foothills to howl alone. First he punched cattle for the Circle. That was
in the early nineties, when the range
meant practically everything from
the boundary to ihe Red Deer. Then
hemesteading commenced and he
jumped out1-of the saddle to follow a
plow. But thai soon wearied and he
returned to the range. It was the
range he was riding now, the last
range the west has left���up in the
Knee Hills, where Pat Brrns' herds,
as strong and as numerous as in the
golden days of twenty odd years ago,
crop the grass for hundreds of miles,
whilst, round about them, the railways and' the wheat men draw the
lines more closely and tie them more
tightly  ; ear  by  year.
The day of the old cattle man is
done, for the ranges have vanished,
but there will still be cattle. The boy
with the stick shooing the belled cow
home is taking the place of the man
with lariat, and the barbed wire fence
is doing the work of the pony ami
saddle.���Forbes Sutherland In Canadian Courier.

A Problem In Hydraulics.
Archdeacon Renison, the new rector
of the Church of the Ascension. Hamilton, has been for fifteen years the
guide, guardian and friend of the Indians and inhabitants of the west
coast of Hudson Bay.
Ho took the census of that country
for the Dominion Government last
year.
Speaking at the organization dinner of the'Canadian Clu'-i of Porcupine on a recent evening, o.' which, by
the way, he had Rie distinction of being made the first honorary member,
he told the following story:
A Calgary real estate boomer was
trying to interest an eastern capitalist in properties of 'that city. After
dilating at some length on the city's
virtues, he said, 'You know there is
only one thing we need in this city's
vicinity to make it perfect, and that
is a lake."
"Well," said the capitalist, "that
doesn't seem Impossible. 1 would suggest that you lay a pipe from hero
to Lake Ontario, and if you fellows
up here are half as good at sucking
as you are at blowing you should be
able to suck Lake Ontario un here
in a very short space of tinu."
How Grenfell Got Cars.
That the farmers of Grenfell, Sask.,
have had little trouble in obtaining
all the empty cars needed for shipping
their grain is the information given
by G. I). Fitzgerald, of Grenfell, in
an  interview  at Regina.
When the demand for cars became
strong at Grenfell the farmers enlisted the assistance of the Board ol
Trade.
"The officials of the Board of Trade
at once took the matter up." said Mr.
Fitzgerald. "The result was that we
had 25 cars in very short time, and
have not experienced any great difficulty in securing cars since that time.
Mv opinion is that much of the hardship and trouble from car shortage
is caused by irresponsible farmers
placing thoir names on the order book
long before they need the cars. I believe the proner solution is to changi)
the law bo that a farmer must givo
the railway company seven days' notice to supply a car, and if the farmer
does not take .the car then, let him
forfoit a penalty. That is the course
I fsvor. and if such a change was
made, I believe much of the difficulty
now experienced would be overcome.'
"Nursery" for Short.
A Stratford, Out., druggist was much
amused   at  a   remark   made   a   few
daya ago by a biy in his employ.
The boy was told te deliver a pack-
ag3 to the hospital. .Arriving there,
he knocked ut the door, but as no one
ahswerad he went to the nurses' home
and left it there.
i Getting back to the drug store he
. reported on his delivery of the package thus: "I couldn't make anybody
I hear at the hospital so I took it to the
nursery."

rie was a benevolent old gent. The
mien of human kindness was part of
him. From his nuinocle to Uiu patent
boots he beamed c.eululity.
It was u fogfc)' afternoon, nnd the
little boy upon whom the old gent happened was Bobbins lustily.
"And what's tbe matter, laddie?"
asked tbe elderly party cheerily.
Tbe boy's grubby lists were rammed
Into his eyes, and he could not speak
through his sobs.
"['���please, sir;" chimed In the small
boy's companion, "we was a playing
marbles, and Freddie he's bin and lost
his glass alley."
"Tben don't cry." put In tb��" old
gent. "1 wouldn't cry any more If 1
were you. Here's n penny. Go and
buy some more alleys."
"But���b-b-hut." sobbed the despairing boy. "It was father's tjiass eye.1"���

"Pull out ono pray hair and a dozen
will ta';e its place i3 an old saving,
which is, to a great extent, true, if no
steps nre taken to stop the cause. When
gray hairs appear it U a sifjn that Nature needs assistance. It is Nature'o
call for help. Gray hair, dull, lifeless
hair, or hair that ia falling out, is not
necessarily a sign of advancing age, for
there ara thousands of elderly people
with perfect heads of hair without a
single streak cf gray.
When gray hairs come, or when the
hair seems to bo lifeless or dead, somo
good, reliable hair-restoring treatment
should bo resorted to at once. Specialises say that one of the best prepara-
tians t-> use i3 tha old-fashioned "sage
tea" which our grandparents used. Tno
best preparation of this kind is Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy, a preparation of domestic sage and sulphur,
scientifically compounded with later discovered hair tonics and stimulants, the
whole mixture being carefully balanced
and tested by experts.
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur is clean and
wholesome and perfectly harmless. It
refreshes dry, parched hair, removes
dandruff and gradually restores faded
or gray hair to its natural color.
. Don't delay another minute. Start
using Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur at
6nce and see what a difference a few
days' treatment will make in your hair.
This preparation is offered to the
public at fifty cents a bottle, and is
recommended and sold by all druggists.
