Several sharp clashes between Cap-
\ tain Young, of the anagpuller Samson.
and former Mate William Boyd, featured the Investigation whicb "is being conducted by Specia) Commissioner W. Norman Bole, K.C, and
which was resumed yesterday morning ln the office of Resident Engineer
The investigator dwelt especially on
the evidence presented by Mate Boyd
regarding tbe alleged disappearance
of certain supplies, and the peculiar
system tn vogue as a means of checking same when first received.
Captain Young on the stand admitted that the system could be improved upon, but he had not taken the
trouble to report upon it.    '
Time Taken Grow*.
Special enquiry regarding tbe missing stores was made some months
ago by Mr. H. A. Wilson, one of the
employees of the department of public
works, and, wblle Mate Boyd stated
that one inspection took six minutes
to complete, Captain Young advanced
the time to about half an hour.
Mate Boyd also stated that certain
stores had been received from Victoria on June 6. Among them were
mats, later used by Captain Young al
bis own house, which would take a
man two weeks to manufacture. Om
of these mats, he stated, was also
made for the wharfinger at the government wharf.
At one period of the hearing yesterday Commissioner Bolg was com
pelled to admonish the two witnesses,
Captain "Young and Mate Boyd, for
their heated arguments against each
Missing  Paint*.
The paint incident was particularly
i so.    Mate Boyd aaked Captain Young
"How did you account tor the Maple
Leaf paint it it was used on the sblp?'
Captain Young���lt was.
Mate Boyd���It struck me as a
strange coincidence that while we
were missing these paints you were
painting your house and getting it
under wny.
Captain Young���Don't get too familiar.
Mate Boyd���I am not saying it was
more than a coincidence.
Here Captain Young turned to the
commissioner stating that he had been
cautioned by bia honor to put things
In certain shape and now Boyd seemed to be hitting close towards home.
Boyd herewith repeated the question.
Merely Coincidence.
Commissioner Bole stated that Boyd
had no right to ask this question, but
where he Mad given one latitude, ke
must allow It to another. He (the
commissioner) would not allow a
King'* councillor to ask these side
questions, but both Uhd been give* a
chance to retain counsel.

velt���Wilson Gets 4
of Pooular Vote,
Per cent
Sylvia Pankhurst and Premier Asquith have nothing on the ward six
ratepayers when it comes to municipaf
questions being discussed, and the
speakers who had the temerity to step
on the platform in favor of the B. C.
E. R. franchise were examined anJ
cross-examined to the heart's content
���of the ratepayers.
For the franchise were Reeve Weart
and Councillor McGregor, while lined
up against them were Councillors
Mayne, Britton and Madill, ex-Councillor T. D. Coldicott and countless numbers in the audience.
Reeve Speak* First.
Mr. T. W. Wilson, president of the
Ward Six Progressive association,
beld down the chair, and displayed a
little strategy in calling upon the
reeve to first speak to the gathering,
reminding the chief magistrate that
fifteen minutes was all the time allowed the respective speakers.
Reeve Weart, remarking on the Injustice of sucb a move, if a speaker
desired to extend a general resume
of the whole of the question, touched
but lightly on the subject, but managed to get back several body'blows
when questioned at length by tire- ratepayers. .,
Councillor McGregor, a candidate
for the reeveship, was in favor of
again submitting the franchise to the
people, claiming that conditions were
changed and would change, tWun > the
tiifle that the B. C. E>. R. question was
flrst discussed.
Opposition Strong.
For the opposition Councillor Brltton stated that as long as he bad anything to do with the Burnaby municipality both as councillor and resident he was unequivocally opposed to
granting the B. C. Electric a franchise
for a period of thirty-seven years unless the company came through with
more concessions.
Councillor Madill was more emphatic and dubbed the scheme a
"damnable outrage." "Many of us
have been walking in the mud for
years," he exclaimed, "and here we
flnd the people of North. Burnaby
kicking just because tbey have to do'
the same." ��(Cries of "Let them da
the same.")
J3&��~��s~i prospects of another railroad c-.n.ng in Burnaby within the
next two > ears, and I am strongly In'
favor of waiting. The case of Burnaby vs. the B. C. E. R. is now in the
the 'judge holding his decision ?
"We are making plana to pave the
Westminster road and when once
(hat is completed we can run our own
motor buses and tie independent ot
the B. C. Electric."
-v Asking Too Much.
Co&ntillor T.  W.  Mayne, of ward
.six, also spoke against the proposed
franchise against giving any corpora-
.tlon for a term of 37 yeara the rigfait.

London, Nov. 7.���The chief interest
ln the American Presidential election
for Britain is its relations to the tariff. Tariff reform is one of the leading Issues in British politics. Tha
Liberal papers hail the Democratic
success as a great victory for low tariff, which ls certain to have an influence in England.
The Daily News says: "That the
Democratic party should return to office after fifteen years in the wilderness. What matters is that it is a regenerated party which has returned,
entrusted by the American people
with the administration and led by a
man who has character and intellect
to carry the mission through."
The News thinks that Dr. Woodroiv
Wilson's election should stimulate all
men of the American universities,
which are more national and democra
tic than the English, to participate in
politics, and adds: "War against protection is an interest common to all
peoples, and the world has too long
been denied that inspiration and that
leadership which we have a right to
expect from the greatest of all repub
The Standard says: "The people
had grown _ tired of two sets of of-
flce-sekers, grouped for the mere purpose of the game into the parties and
divided by no real questions or principle."
The Standard holds that the Democratic revision will leave duties highe,-
than the tariff reformers in England
The Morning Post says: "The significance of the election lies in the fact
that the people were dissatisfied with
the Taft administration, which was too
much controlled by the bosses, bur
were not ready to accent the advanced

Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 1.���Specific
accusations were made by the government in the dynamite conspiracy trial
today that in the spring of 1910 Frank
M, Ryan, president of the Iron Workers' Union, and members of the
union's executive board entered on a
campaign systematically to blow up
the property of certain iron and steel
contractors and that In furtherance of
the plan President Ryan wrote from
New York a letter assigning men to
have charge of explosions in different
Twenty-flve explosions that year, Including those at Los Angeles, were alleged by the government to have been
carried on with the knowledge of
most of the executive officers of the
International Association of Bridge-
workers and Structural Ironworkers.
Prosecutor Miller -read a letter
dated April 19, 1910, In which Ryan
was purported to have directed J.�� J.
McNamara to instruct union officiate
at Pittsburg, Buffalo, Rochester, Worcester, Mass., Jersey City, Detroit,
Cincinnati, Peoria, 111., Davenport, la.,
and Mount Vernon, 111., to "take care
of jobs" in those districts.
Another letter was Quoted as show-
fug that McNamara wrote to member?
Informing them of the policy recently
laid down by the board and urging
secrecy. Explosions'later occurred In
or near all those cities.
The Ryan letter was quoted as saying in part:
"In regard to the McClintock-Mar-
shall jots, let Henry W. Legleitner
r.ttend to tbe jobs In tiie Pittsburg dis
trict. Let 3, T. Butler attend to thr
jobs at Buffalo and Rochester. Hock
In will arrange for the Chicago Detroit and Cincinnati jobs. P. J. Morin
can attend to Mount Vernon."
Two explosions at a hotel under
construction in Salt Lake City, the
same year, were preceded by an extensive correspondence between McNamara and J. E. Munsey, the business agent at Salt Lake'City, and Eugene A. Clancy, San Francisco, an executive board member, the government charged.
Referring to a contractor, Munsey,
according to a letter wrote a few
days after one explosion:
"We put Jones on the hummer,"
and added: "I enclose a telegram
that was stolen from the American
Bridge Company by one of the broth-
era in this city. I bad him doing a
little work for the local there.
Clancy was alleged to have slipped
off In Salt Lake City to investigate
conditions there.
Edward Smythe, secretary of u
local union at Peoria, was charged
through the reading of letters, with
liaving asked McNamara for $100 to
gpt out of jail two men who assaulted
non-union workmen in Peoria. Clippings from a Peoria newspaper were j
enclosed, giving an interview In which
Smythe denied the union had anything to do with the assault. Acres'
the letter was written a recommendation J>y Herbert 8. lloc'cin that thc
oney be advanced to the Peoria
union. A lettter was produced, signed
j by McNamara, saying tbe money was
enclosed, and asked Smythe "to be
more careful hereafter."

Turkish shells were bursting before
and behind her.   She continues:
"The Montenegrins burned all the
houses of the 'lurks as they retired
until they reached Gruimer, where the
Montenegrin forces were rallied and
sent as reinforcements to Scutari,
where all next day the fighting was
so violent there was no time even to
think of rest.
"Down below on our right, towards Vraja, terrific fire was being
maintained, and way on the left
whence we had come, shells could be
seen bursting in the Kari Valley, tho
smoke from burned houses still making a smoke in the sky.
"While whiffs of smoke rising away
from the same spot told that the Montenegrin shells were falling well within the fortifications of Tarabosch, the
attack on Scutari was being made
from ail sides. As there seemed no
immediate prospect of Scutari being
recaptured, I decided' to return to
Podgoritza, being influenced by the
fact that I had not had my clotnes off
for fifteen days, so on Saturday I lett,
the army and, riding all day Sunday,
reached Podgoritza today."
Miss Durham then tells or many
treacherous murders and outrages b.v
Bashi Bnzouks. who posed as Albanians, and concludes her statement:
"Intensely cold weather has set In
and unless Scutari has fallen the war
will end soon In this region. The
Montenegrins have suffered terribly.
An Austro-Hungarian peace mission
to Scutari has failed. The Moslem
quarters at Scutari will be bombarded
tomorrow. Montenegrins from the
United States are beginning 10 arrive."
The London newspapers this morning, discussing the question of intervention, hold that disposal of Albania
forms the crux of the position. Whili
it Is asserted that Vienna insists that
any attempt on Servia's part to encroach on Albania, will be regarded
as a casus belli, the consensus of editorial opinion is that the prospects
are neither worse nor better than they
were, and that after the Bulgarians
have taken Constantinople, a way will
surely be found to adjust the allies'
territorial demands In a manner satisfactory to the victors and avert hostilities between tbe great powers.

Columbus, O, Nov. 7.--Defeated, but
far from discouraged, President Taft
haa already formed plans for holding
together and strengthening the Republican party.
The plans are indefinite, but he said
tonight to friends that the party would
continue to exist; that it will be aa active as in the past, and that there is
no reason to believe that its chances
of future success were not excellent.
So far as the President's plan Is
concerned, he hopes to see organized
a National Republican Club, entirely
apart from the Republcan Committee,
which shall cherish the principles of
the party and be a source of political
activity not only during election yeara,
but at all times.
To a suggestion that he might be
I the Republican nominee in 1916 the
President replied with a smile, but
made no comment. He laughingly repeated his Intention of returning to
Cincinnati and the practice of law.
The President Is convinced that the
task of President-Elect Wilson will not
be easy. He ssld tonight he earnestly
hoped Mr. Wilson would not call an
extra session of congress to revise the
tariff. He wished, he Bald, to see the
present prosperity continue an long ai
possible. Mr. Taft declared Mr. Wilson would face a c.ongremi made up to
a large etent of untried men who liav
come to believe in histrionic publ'clty
and who believe that to show theli
faith with the people they must ai
times bo "Insurgents" nnd oppose the
programme of the leaders.
The President was particularly Interested in any tariff revls'on programme and laughed when he said h"
was eagerly awaiting the Democratic
offer tn reduce the schedules of that
"Iniqiiitoua Payne-Aldrich law."
Asked If he did not consider Mr.
Wilson more conservative than radical, the President told the following
storv about Senor 55las, head of ths
Radlcftl party in Cuba:
"Zias vas campaigning once." said
the President, "and was accused of being a conservative. 'I'm not a conservative,' said Zlas. 'I am a radical. I must speak as a radical on
the "latfnrm to Veen mv followers, bu!
In office I am not a radical.' "
The President left Columbus at
K.41 for Washington. He expected to
stay there, with but few trips away
from the White Houae. until March 4.
Ve announced today that he would
pot vlalt tbo Panama canal during the
Christmas holidays as he had planned.
Richard l,. l.er'-is. one of the six-
foot secrot service men who has
p-nrded Prcsldnnt Taft since he wan
elected four years ago. was notified
todav to proceed to Princeton. Hs
will **e <o'ncd by other secret service
men later.

London, Nov. 7.���According to a
special cable dispatch received here
last night another great victory bas
beeti won by the Bulgarians, who
have overtaken and annihilated the
rearguard of the Turkish army whlcn
was fleeing to safety behind the lines
of the Catalja forts, Sofia reports
that the Turkish losses in killed and
wounded were double those In the
four days' battle near Lule Burgas,
which the Dally Chronicle's correspondent estimated at forty thousand.
The Turkish garrison has been
withdrawn from Salonikl after destroying a number of bridges forming
the approaches to the city, according
u a u3��a agency dispatoh from Athens.
ihe Turks also are reported to
have been decisively beaten by the
Bulgarians and driven in disorder
from their positions at the Catalja
forts in front of Constantinople, according to a dispatch from Sofia. The
fighting waa very severe and lasted
two days.
In addition to the Russian squadron watching the Bosphorus, says
an OdcsBa dispatch today, another
rquadron left Sebastopol yesterday
for the Coast of Asia Minor with seal
ed orders.
Later dispatches from Constantinople say the mosques, schools and
churches are unable to contain the
great army of hungry fugitives, many
of whom are starving and wandering
about the streets.
Tho Turkish ambassador at Berlin
telegraphs that Germany is willing to
support _ Turkey's legitimate request
for med'at'on. Encouraged by this
Intimation Turkey today sent to the
powers a precisely-worded basis for
peace, asking the powerB to safeguard Ottoman dignity.
The hone Is also expressed that

Pari*,, Nov. 7.���Newa that Bulgarian
troops bave broken through the last

The report that Czar Ferdinand bad

Constantinople 1* believed to be certain to follow.
The butchery by Turk* of hundreds
of Christians at Rodosto Is confirmed
by today'* dispatches. Women and
children, lt was said, were thrown Into the flames of their burning homes.
All reports agree tbat the battle
fought between Tcborlu and Serai
was the bloodiest of the war.   The
Moslems fought desperately, but were
unable to withstand the slashing Bulgarians' attack, and Czar Ferdinand's
men Anally triumphed. Of the 40,000
Turka engaged in the battle, only a
few escaped. The fate of Nazlm Pasha, tbe Turkish minister of war, who
was tn command of the Moslem force,
Is not known. It ts reported that be
ended hts life when the tide of battle

The special correspondent cf the
London Times gives the following
vivid description of the departure of
the Turks from Constantinople, and
points out the characteristics of the
Ottoman soldiery.
To the man who has been with an
army in the field there is a note of
sadness beneath the enthusiasm which
greets the passage of troops from the
base to the front. The eager faces of
the officers, the fine physique of the
men, the inspiriting music of the
bauds, cannot divorce the imagination
from the sinister picture that these
men are hastening to complete. As

Indications point to one of the hottest fights ever waged in labor circles taking place when the annual
convention of the British Columbia
Federation of Labor is held In Victoria sometime in January.
Three factions are now working, not
for the common good, but to beat out
the other, and some stirring times are
sure to be engaged in. before the dove
of peace finally settles upon the gathering.
Faction number 1 is strongly In favor of the Federation entering the pro-1

Expressing himself ln the best of

game in Alberta, and Its prospects of

rep. teams. "This trip was more or
less of an experiment on our part," he
��ald, "and might be termed a 'feeler.'"
"While it was not financially a success, 1 think we have learned a great
deal. Rugby football in Alberta is
just tn its Infancy and we have many
things to contend with. In the flrst
place we have only three teams, all in
Calgary, and have so far no inter-city
games such as you have on the Coast
to stimulate the game. However, next
year we shall have a stronger league
In Calgary, and also teams in Edmonton, Red Deer, Black Diamond, Lethbridge and McLeod, and then, let the
Coast look out!

and stony, and this accounts for our
weak defence and the high tackling
of our back division.   So far we havo

Ever since the engagement was first
mooted, the reporters, typos, M. O's.
editors, even the printers devil, have
been squandering their hard earned
cash in order to make up in practice
what they lack in the brainy stuff so
far as the bowling game ls concerned.
'Tis even rumored that several of the
benedicts have been at odds with
their better, halves on account of the
little time they have spent at home
of late.
The time of the battle has been set
for 5 o'clock and presses, linotype ma

and the college, should be a thriller

which the Y's Uimmed the 104th on

With some new songs and parodies
and a few new faces, "The Missouri
Girl" played to a rather small house
at the Westminster opera house last
evening. For lovers of comedy drama,
the production was an excellent ope
and even those who have seen lt time
and again were forced to laugh at th��
ludicrous antics of "Zeke" and Daisy
portrayed by Bing Cushman and LU
Han Morris respectively.
While the comedy is somewhat of
the slapstick order, and the humor
very apparent. It nevertheless pleased
the crowd, mirth and laughter predominating in every scene. There
were, of course, some serious
moments and several tragedies, but
these only served to make the laughs
more welcome.
The plot is the same that has been
running on the stage for years with
variations. On the whole, however,
the piece is good.

Three interesting games were pulled off in the House league last evening and while the scoring was naturally low; tha novices are displaying
some class aa far as enthusiasm is
concerned, an interest which is making Uie league championship a close

three, but the quintette under Captain
Knight came through with a blinger

their home, No. 176 Bast 117th atreet
that he had a' queer feeling, and was
tn pain. The queer feeling continued
and Mrs. Jacobs called Dr. SomerviUe

"Never was sick a day, not even an
hour.   You dog't think I'm sick now.'
"Not very," replied tbe physician,

be all right in s day or ao."
"Medicine! medicinal" exclaimed
tbe centenarian*. "I never had a dote
of any drug affd 1 dont want it now,

The old man then told how be always had lived Sa otber roan. He
smoked, took a drink If he desired it
ate when he was hungry, and denied
himself no pleasures. He came to

There Is a silent grandeur about

who dwell among (hem. It Is tbeir
greatness, mingled wltb their stillness.
Then, too, mountaineers are constantly Incurring dangers, and a certain sensitiveness grows up In people
thus exposed as to their steadfastness
In standing by a companion In peril.
Indeed, tbey are very exacting with
one another in this respect, and any

tnd went Into the house. Wben a little later sbe looked out at wbere she
had left her guest be wns gone. The
refreshment she had plticed before blin
was untasted.
One morning the melancholy stranger
announced thut he had come to Cren-
delwald for a purpose. A friend of bis
many years before hnd attempted to
make the ascent of tbe Jungfrnu and
bad beeu lost ln a crnvnsse. Doubtless tbe body had been ln a measure
preserved by the ley cold atmosphere,
and be proposed to make an attempt to
recover It When nsked wby no such
attempt hnd been mnde nt tbe time cf
the accident be replied that the only
person wbo had deemed a descent for
the purpose possible wns the guide who
was making the ascent with the lost
man, and no one could prove It practicable by nn attempt without considerable assistance. Involving expense.
The stranger hired a number of persons to go with bim to Join lu tbe proposed work nnd procured a thousand
feet of rope, ne consulted with no one
as to a plan or the best time for putting It Into execution. It wns known
that some one was to be lowered Into
tbe crevasse, tiut whom nnd Into whut
crevasse were not given out. When nil
was relidy tbe stranger und his assistants, carrying tbe rope, attended by
many curious persons, sallied forth to
make tbe ascent to the place where the
accident hnd occurred.
The way led past the chalet where
the stranger had tarried not long before and conversed with the frauleln.
She cnme out and stood looking at tbe

ty, "we go to flnd the body of a tourist who was lost ln a crevasse or, rather,
over a precipice on the mountain side
years ago.    Hls guide, linns Rlchter,
�� young man of twenty, returned without him und displayed an end of the
rope attached  to his own  person  so
frayed as to Indicate thnt It hnd been
broken.     Rlchter explained  thnt  the
tourist had slipped, tbe rope had broken and tbe tourist had gone Into the
crevasse.   Rlchter claimed that be had
braced himself so ns to withstand the
shock.   One Wilhelm Burche charged
Rlchter with having cut the rope ln order to save himself, while his charge
was dangling over the crevasse.    We
are going to lower a man to recover
the  body  so  tbst  we may  discover
whether the end of the rope attached to

"Who," nsked the frauleln, "Is to be
lowered into the crevasse?"
Tliere was silence for awhile, during
which the woman appeared to be
thinking; tben she said:
"lf you nre In Rlcbter's Interest yon
moy be charged wltb tampering wltb
the rope before It ts brought up."
"True, nnd on that account one who

stranger bunded a large roll of bnnk-
notes to a man nf tbe, party, who
counted n hundred thousand franca
unl bunded them to a friend for

nround the bodies of ench of tbe two
men, who were handed alpenstocks to

explorer  Braved  African  Climate to
Make Important Discoveries.
"Tho heat where we worked," says
Dr. Felix Oswald, British explorer in
;entral Africa, "was terrific. Tsetse
(lies abounded, and I have seen the
midges come over the lake in a cloud
that obscured the sun to a dull yellow
tinge, and the noise of their humming
as they passed sounded like the lower
C note on a pipe organ. Flying crickets
as large as sparrows were common.
There were ants three-quarters of an
inch long. But what oppressed me
most was the dreadful loneliness.
Strange to say, the intensely hot air
was stimulating to the nerves. I drank
a gallon of riplk a day."
This eminent authority was sent to
British Kast Africa some time ago by
the British Must m and the discoveries made are quite interesting. He
reports having found conclusive evidence that the great lake of Victoria
Nyanza has been in existence since the
Miocene age ��� a matter bf 3,000,000
years or so. The lake is of vast extent and lies at an altitude of 4,000
feet, in a mountainous region of the
equator. In places it is of vast depth,
the bottom probably being below tlie
sea  level.
' Dr. Oswald found buried on the
eastern 9l|ore cf the lake parts of a
numher of prehistoric mammals, including the jawbone and teeth of a
dinotherium of the Tertiary Era, and
some boots of aceratherium and an-
thratherium, the ancient types of rhinoceros. . They were all found close
to the' mouth of the Kuji or Kuya
river. Other traces of fossils were unearthed at points five and 15 miles
distant, in what appeared to be the
same gully.
According to the British Museum experts the discovery of the vast age of
Victoria Nyanza throws an entirely
new light on the problem of human
antiquity. One consequence is that
civilization in Egypt may have to be
assumed as probably having existed
from 50,000 to 500,000 years ago or even
longer. For, they say, if Victoria
Nyanza is 3,000,000 years old. the river
Nile, of which it is the source, is not
only of practically equal age, but has
in all that almost inconceivably long
period flowed in its present course of
over 2,400 miles from the equator to
the Mediterranean.
That moans, according te the museum scientists, that the valley of the
Nile in Egypt has remained for more
than 1,000,000 years :n virtually its
present physical state, with conditions
as favorable to human occupation and
human civilization a million years ago
asp tbey were 12.000 years ago, at what
is called id "dawn" of K'yp'ian history ; and, inasmuch as tiie Egyptian
culture of 12,000 yers ago was as
pronounced as it is to-day, there is no
way of l>aiting, by inference, the actual extent.ci Us antiquity.
The Old Man of the Mountain.
The title "Old Man of the Mountain" was firgtapplied te Hassan Ben
Salbah, chief-of a Mohammedan sect
who founded a formidable dynasty in
Syria, A. D. 1090. Banished from his
country, he took up \l\& abode on
Mount Lebanon, gathered a band ol
followers and soon became the terror
of the Jews, Christians and Turks.
They ail obeyed his orders implicitly
in the belief that they would receive
choice rewards in the joys of para-
8ise. These assassins, as liis followers
were called among themselves, rode
roughshod over the country for about
200 year.'. Whenever their chief, the
Old Man of the Mountain, tl.ou.ilit
himself injured he sent a band o'
th^se men secretly to murder the offender, a:d it was from tl.is that our
word assassin originally took its
A Machine That Sorts Diamonds Invented by a Youth. '
When the negro laborers de*oend into the diamond mines at Kimberley
they blast and pick out the hard dia-
niantiferous earth and put it into
wooden tubs, which are hauled on
stout wires to the surface, where the
earth is spread over the ground to
undergo for several months the
softening influences of heat and cold.
When it is soft enough it is shoveled
into the washing machines, where the
dirt is separated from -the rough diamonds and other large mineral substances. The mixture of minerals
remaining is known as concentrates.
It was formerly necessary to go carefully over these concentrates, to pick
out the garnets and many other
foreign substances, until nothing remained but the rough diamonds. This
was a slow and laborious operation,
but it wns an essential part of the
mining industry until it was superseded a few years ago.
Among the employes in the sorting-
room was a young fellow named
Kerston, who quietly went to work to
Iind a way to separate tbe diamond
from other s-tene? more quickly and
easily tlinn could be done by t':c slow
progress of hand-picking. He was pot
disc, uraged by his many failures.
One dtiy, by the merest accident, be
made the discovery he was after. A
rough diamond and a garnet happened
to be lying on a small board on the
bench where he was working. He
raised one end of the board. The garnet slipped off, but the diamond remained. This wns worth investigating. He found that there was a coating of grease on the board which had
retained the diamond, but not the
garnet. He procured a wider board,
coated one side of it with grease, and
dumped a few handful* ol concentrates on it.
Then he found that by holding the
board in a slightly inclined position
and vibrating it, all the concentrates
except the diamonds moved to the
lower end and fell off. while the diamonds remained in place. Then be
invented a machine by whicli his discovery might be utilized. Considerable study was required to perfect the
apparatus, but at last the machine
was completed, and the big diamond
men were invited to witness the new
method of separating diamonds from
the rest of the concentrates. The invention was an entire success. A
more simple and complete device for
saving time, labor, and loss of diamonds coul.1 not be imagined. The
entire work is now done by machinery; hand-picking has lieen wholly
superseded, and both the inventor and
the mine-owners have profited handsomely by the labor-saving device.

The   Brush   Turkey.
The brush turkey, wliich is f >und
in Australia, New Guinea, the Solomon Islands. Borneo and many otber
pnrts of the globe and which is a distant relative of the grouse ard tlie
pheasant, belongs to the itiuiindbuild-
trs, or megapodes, and is remarkable
In that it anticipated man as the inventor of the incubator by a few hundred thousand years or so.
When the nesting season arrives
two or more hens, with the assistance,
perhaps, of a cock, build an immense
neap of soil, mixed with decaying
leaves and twigs. These mounds in
New Guinea are sometimes 11 feet
high and 25 feet in diameter and some
have been found 15 feet in height and
60 feet in circumference. The hens
then scrape with their enormously
lar?e leet (hence the name megapodes) a hole in the centre of the
heap and in it deposit their eggs to
the number of a score or more, afterwards covering over the hole. In
course of time the heat generated by
the decaying vegetation hatches the
eggs. The chicks,' wliich have been
living and fattening on the food yolk,
grow nd shed their nestling down
and develop their lirst suit of feathers
while still within the walls cf their
ivory "cradles.'' When at last they
cut their way out of the shell, they'
rest for a few h< urs in the mound;
then they wriggle out, the quill-
sheaths peel off and tliey cannot only
run  but lly alone.

Shellac In Chinese Works of Art.

to Chniese works of art by the use
of shellac. Some of them are very

His Craze for Whiskers.
Ring Alfonso, who recently spent an
enjoyable holiday in this country, has
not of late been indulging in any new
whisker effects.
Three years ago. during an absence
from Spain, His Majesty, in order to
relieve the monotony, or create a sensation, or for some occult reason, grew
side whiskers and had his hair cut
short. It was snid that the King
thoucht this srrangement made him
look like a British admiral, but Queen
Victoria soon dispelled this aimable
delusion by telling her august spouse
that he looked "more like an English
butler." Straightway King Alfonso
went and hod a shave.

Fate of the Monkey.

some lire out all their days In peine
and pleasure, others nre early brought
face to face wltb a very hard fate.
Tbe merry, playful little rusrnl may

become tbe slave of a traveling organ

���cold streets of our crowded cities.

eyes watching blm, the eyes of nn Immense catlike creature, which has a
superb buff coat, covered all over with
black spots, and paws so strong that
a single blow from one of them must
be death to poor Jncko.
W The leopard preys upon monkeys nnd
is quite able to climb trees In pursuit

Damp Weather Has Been a Boon to
the Womenfolk.
Canadian ladies' faces haro always
been charming, and the Dominion lias
been noted for its beautiful women.
In spite of the high standard, however,
an .improvement has lately been noticed. A gradual, alluring change ha*
been at work, a subtle, unthought-of
influence, and, lo, our girls are more*
Avishing than ever. 1' isn't that
their features have been altered; nor
is it the result of a closer attention
to the laws of beauty. The change has
come in the complexion, and Un good
fairy is something which the beneficiaries have hated and execrated.
Such is the peculiar method of that
unfathomable goddess, Nature herself,
says a writer in Tbe Toronto Star.
That rain and dampness are the
best "creams" for the complexion is
easily capable of proof owing to universal example. The Canadian complexion always has been rather good,
Because this country has rarely been
afflicted with long periods ol drought.
Except by the most prejudiced, however, it lias been agreed that the English complexion is more ideal than the
one typical of Canada. Occasionally,
of course, the English face coloring
is too pink and almost borders on the
florid. But the average should be the
basis of comparison, and this method
awards the palm to Great Britain's
The reason? Undoubtedly, the
humidity and dampness, of the British
Isles. The air of France is clearer
and drier; it probably quickens the
intellect, but it dulls the cheeks. For
this summer, Canada has been England at its very \hmpest, and cur women are now the possessors of the
.same delicately-hued, silk-like skin.
The effect ol the climate on the complexion is nowhere more graphically
illustrated than in Western Canada.
The present flood conditions have prevailed on the prairies also this season,
but usually the air in that region is
remarkably dry. . It is one of the chief
advertisements of the West, and is extolled in all real estate advertisements,
and praised by every man, who feels
his blood tingle more vigorously and
his mind act more briskly. The wi>-
men, however, either keep silent or
openly complain. They know that
their complexion is suffering, and that
only the wholesale uso of lotions and
a periodical visit to a damper climate
will prevent their skin drying and
Travel a few hundred miles further,
to the. British Columbia coast, and see
the difference'. After living on th;'
prairies for a year, it is almost startling to drop into Vancouver some al-
ternoon, and to go down to the docks
where crowds of gaily-dressed women
are waiting for the coast steamers ti
take them for a trip to Victoria. The
ladies' laces are like roses, the dainty
pink roses blooming in the innumerable Vancouver gardens. The rain has
done it all.
Perhaps our girls here will never
have as good an opportunity again as
they have had during t..is wet summer. They should realize, however,
the real blessings ol damp weather,
and should determine to take every
possible advantage Irom even infrequent rains in the future. The trouble
is that Ontario women don't know how
to act in wet weather. When they see
the clouds roll up and the sky darken,
they mumble and grumble about not
bting ab'e to go out. They avid ^he
rain like a plague; they will run tor
a block to gat away from it. Rather
should they "welcome it, and rush oul
to' meet it.

Ottawa   Pastor    Saya   Children   Are
Given Small  Bottles to Cultivate
Ottawa, Nov. 7.���Rev. R. G. Peever,
pastor of the McLeod Street Method
ist Church, at the monthly meeting of
the Children's Aid Society, made seri
ous allegations against a prominent
Canadian whisky-producing firm which
the society decided tet ask the license
inspector to investigate.
Mr. Peever produced at the meeting
a miniature bottle of the whiskey
which he alleges the firm are sending
around free of charge to any youth,
adult or minor who sends ln his name
He also put in a circular letter, given
by a young boy, who also gave him
the bottle. The letter states that a
free bottle will be sent on request.
"This whiskey is given free distribution by the firm ln order that the
-children may cultivate a taste for it
which, of course, . will naturally Increase the firm's business," asserted
the minister.
After considerable discussion It was
decided to consult the license inspector and also call the attention of the
Dominion Alliance to the matter.

We ALL, advertise.
A man advertises his character by his
deeds, his wisdom B$ his words or by his
silence. A merchant's store, stock, and windows speak either well of HI of his business.
So when a man says "No, Ldo nok advertise," he knows not what he says. What
he really means is that he does rfet publish
printed advertisements.
Some proclaim this as though It
-were a virtue���yet spend much effort
and invest much money In advertising their business through mediums
other than the printed word.
They may make their wares fit for
a king���yet hesitate to introduce them
to Brown or Smith.

a, vital force in EVERY business, just
as ls the "silent" advertising of a
product's quality or a merchant's service.
When yon employ tbe Printed Word
