has been the more praiseworthy owing to the fact that 3 broody hens had

Tbe "cul-lc-jatte" does not exist in

In English for him, but in Paris he Is
a not unusual spectacle. There are, In
Paris streets, a number of men whi
for some reason have heen obliged to
suffer amputation of both le^s from
the trunk, and beg lor public charity on little carriages on which they
wheel themselves about with extraor
dinary skill, using their hands as pro-
! pellors. It Is an unwritten police rule
ln Paris tbat all traffic must be stop-
I ped whenever a "cul-de-Jatto" wlahe3
to cross the road, and ln these days of
motor-cars and taxlcabs the rule Is a
good one.
But the "eul-de-jatte" has discovered thut many people who are uncrippled have more difficulty than he in
getting from one pavement to another
and has turned his deformity Into a
money-maker. Every day at crowdod
street corners oue may see one of
tliose unfortunates on his little carriage, heading a crowd of timid folk
acioss the road while the policemen
at each side keep back the truffle.
When they are safely on the other
side, the "cul-de-Jatte" takes off his
cap and asks for "ferry money.'' Ho
rarely collects less than 00 cents, and
ns he repeats the performance twenty or thirty times u day tho, simplest
calculation will show that his trade IS
n good one. lt is true that lt needs

day  of  March  A.  D
I Owing to the confined quarters,
feather eating has been rife amongst
the pens comprising diss one. Thc
prlnplpa] offenders have been pens 22
1, 9, 10, 3, 4, 2. 6. Birds in each pen
have been successfully treated with n
mixture of pure laid and Barbadoes
Aloes. This pernicious habit has been
found very hard to treat, owing to the
fact that the birds cannot be removed
from the pens, because of jeopardizing
their egg yields.
During the month (29 days), a great
variance In food consumption and results has been noted. For instance,
pen 29, producing 8S eggs, ate only one
pound more food than pen 28, which
produced only 18 eggs, and pen 2.
whilst laying 98 eggs, consumed two
pounds more than pen 1, which produced 45 eggs.
Just one-hundred weight of clam
shell was consumed during the month.
In class 2, even greater changes
have taken place. For the first time
during the contest, pen 40 have hud to
yield up tho premier position. By
only producing 28 eggs during the
month, they hnve dropped to fifth
place. The eggs from this pen h ive
been even smaller during the past
month than previously. Pen 39 has
drawn away from the pens succeeding.

Constable  Murdered.
Pico Instantly shot Constable Bovrt.
vho  died   in   the    General   Hospital
close by a few minutes later. Rutledge
covered     Stewart,    but    didn't    flre,
"Throw up your handB," he kept saying.   Rice also pointed hla revolver at
Stewart.    "Get out, get out," ordered
thc constables.
Strange to say.the de?perate trio
obeyed him. Had they killed Stewart
nnd taken his keys they could have
freed themselves of their handcuffs,
and noi a msn on the street would
have darcl to Interfere with them.
As it was thoy climbed  out of tho
cab linked together.   Once In the road
they made a dash for a    street car
which had come to a stop.    Stewai t
from the door of the cab fired, fatally
wounding Jones.   The other two dragging him by the handcuffs  attempted
to rclze the car. their Idea being to
compel the motorman to run them out
to the suburbs.   Stewart leaped from
the cab, and running to the back end
pulled the trolley pole off the wire.
Battle With Burglars.
Then followed a horrible struggle, lu
which the motorman and Policeman
Dodds, a guard from the jail, who happened along on his way to    dinner,
joined Stewart.    Several  shots were
fired by the burglars.    Doors on the
Bouth side of Gerrard street, near Sa-
niach, were pierced by some of the
bullets.   The three men handcuffed together, one of them dying, fought In
utter desperation.   The officers clubbing their heavy Colt's revolvers, beat
them down.     Rice's head   and face
were fenrfully treated.   He had shot
Boyd.   Jones died of hls bullet wound
ln the jail    hospital 12 hours   later.

One  morning Detective   Cuddy arrested hlm on \orln street in Toronto,
at a second-hand store, ln the act ot
selling stuff stolen from    Brampton.
Por mis offence Rutledge received a
sentence of six months ln the Central
prison.   While waiting in the Jail at

Today is election day. Tlrfs evening
It will be known what tho people think
of tho McBride administration. There
Js no doubt that tho Conservative
party will be returned a^aln by a

In Westminster the light has been a
quiet one. Premier McBitae<*nd other
prominent members of hlBl>arty have
addressed the electors oa behalf of
Mr. Thomas Gifford. Mr. George Kennedy has taken every opportunity to
put his views before the electorate,
and last night local Liberals wero
given an opportunity of hearing some
of the big guns of tlie Liberal party.
Today the politicians are through. It
is up to tho people to do their part.
Although the attendance at meetings
of tbe rich Fraser Valley, lt has won-'
derful possibilities, and In lact ono

cultural district. Tbo elements ot a
great city have always existed there,
but 'tbo mnn' never seemed to arrive.
Six or seven years ago the peoplo of
the Hoyal City suddenly saw the light,

"A group of men with progressive
ideas and a desire to stimulate the sd-
vance of the city along lines that were
obviously hers to follow, looked about
for the man who could put their earnestness of purpose and enthusiasm Into effect for the general good. They
discovered him ln the person of .lohn
Andrew Lee. As president of the
Board of Trade he had proved a keen
critic and an uncompromising opponent of any Infrlngment of civic rights.
Mr. Lee opened the eyes of the citizens to the danger which threatened
tbeir water supply when a powerful
corporation was seeking certain privileges.
"As a man with an eye single to the
good of tbe people Mr. I^ee was elected mayor three years ago. Since that

the Water Extension Debenture Bylaw. Tills calls lor the jfaiging of
$40,000. With this money It is proposed to build a second pipe lino to
Queensborough under the North Arm,
do enlarge the high level reservoir,
and to build a new reservoir at
Quocns park. The storage capacity o:
the city's waterworks will thus be
raised from not quite 5,000,000 gallons
:to 13,000,000 gallons. Any money left
over will be used for other extensions
that may become necessary.
Thu idea that the ratepayers might
turn down such a by-law seems ridicu-
should minister to the ghost of the
king in the next world. When the
last king came to the throne the country was a British protectorate.
According to the medicine man the
"god" was displeased and indicated
that the first person seen coming
along a particular road should be slain
over the drum in whicli human blood
was wont to be poured at each coronation. That unfortunate person happened to be a tax gatherer, an Englishman, who was accordingly decapitated. The "medicine man" was arrested, but the Judge liberated him
with a caution, taking the view that
he acted out of ignorance. The drum,
however, was brought by the speaker

During the flrst half of the nineteenth
century a Russian gentleman. Count
Koronlef. living in Finland.-owned a
beautiful serf girl named Soula. Adjoining the Koronief estate lived a
small farmer named Orloff. OrlofT's
��on Peter and Soula were wout to play
together as children nnd when tbey
grew to manhood and womanhood be-
i-aine lovers. Unfortunately for tliem
while Peter wus a free man Soula was
S serf.
Now. the count was n firm supporter
of the government, while even at that
early date ilu-re were evidences of discontent unions' the people. The tnur-
niurlugs wero beard mostly ninong lhe
higher classes, for the nerfs were too
Ignorant, too degraded, too used to consider ilii'lr master, the czar, u divine
being, io protest against anything that

rlass. to which, he belonged, supporting
Ihe few nobles nnd many Intelleetiiul
commoners who desired to see the au-
torruey of the government curbed und
tbe lower classes educated.
When, therefore, OrlofT senior offered
to buy Sonia and give her to bis son to
wife tbe count refused to sell her. "No
oue belonging lo my estate." he said,
"shall puss under the Influence of these
new notions which ure Intended lo Interfere with the will of tbe emperor.
In Russia we have ulwnys needed and
always hud n single power to rule.
Certain people are uow beginning uu

We shall bave anarchy."      ,
Wben tbe farmer gave tbe count's
answer to his son, advising him to
think no more of Soula, a rebellious
tire tlarcd lu lhe young man's breast.
He dure not tell Sonla. for she would
undoubtedly feel lliat the hope of happiness which bad been born to her hud
beeu queocbod, since sbe would never
id ren in of disputing her muster's will.
The law gave ber to him us a serf,
Bnd if she rebelled Ihe law would punish ber. Indeed, a marriage without

If her lover attempted to defy tbe
count he would be sent to Siberia.

was ready to tuke any risk io pomaeiw

panned nwny. ns ench boh bad succeeded bis father from time Immemorial.
With Soula for bis wife he would
have been content to do RO. If he
should possess her he must do so b.v
running uway with her. and if caught
the >-o!isei|iiemes would be terrible,
not only for bim. but for her. But
love wlll take nny risk. Peter bad
beard of America. Tliere the people
were their own rulers. If he could
only get Soula out of Russia nnd tnke
her to America they could be united.
But any attempt to carry her away
would be fraught with great danger,
and there wan every chauce of failure.
The only chance for such an attempt
to succeed would Ite by bribery, always a common method of accomplishing objects ln Russia, but Peter, so
long ns hls father lived, could not raise
much money. The old man wus not
minded to cripple himself by rnWnc
funds to carry out any wild scheme
of his son's tq satisfy a whim. Besides, sons and daughters tu Russia
were not supposed to choose mates:
tbey were provided by their parents.
Peter secretly saved whut money he
could, knowing Hint even If he mic^
ceeded ln getting Sonia out of Russia
he could not tuke her to America
without means. In one way and another he got together enough to pay a
patisnge. Tben he began to weigh the
different plant be had been forming
for kidnaping Ills love, ne dared not
trust her wilh uny intention of what
he had In mind, fearing thnt even a
knowledge of lt would cause her unwittingly to betray lt. Theu. too. be
hnd no assurance that she would consent to take a risk fraught with such
frightful consequences to ber snd himself ln case of failure.
The plan be chose embodied Its formation. Its execution und Its responsibility solely tu .himself. No other was
to share the secret with him, not even!
Sonla. lt wus to kidnap the girl and
carry ber around the gulf of Bothnia
Into Sweden. The couutry through
which they must pass wns cold and
desolate. The only thlug that rendered
the scheme at all feasible was that the
estate from which they would start
wos only n hundred miles from the
Swedish border. But to puss over this
dlstonce without being caught nnd returned was u dnngerous undertaking.
IVter had enough money in hire a two
horse slelgb. Including the necessary
reluys. besides suQlcient to take him to
u sailing point for America. His arrangements were perfected ln September, and, with loverlike Impatience, Instead of being satisfied to wait till the
next spring, he plunned to carry out
his attempt before the winter set in.

ln his sleigh. He wns fortunate enough
to meet her and asked her to go for s
ride with blm. Fearing tbat lf seen
with blm she would be punished, sbe
demurred, but he fiuully persuaded ber,
aud wbeu well on Iheir way he lold ber
thut they would not stop of their own

nerved herself to tbe risk, and from
that moment Peter pushed forward.
Unfortunately ihe pair were seeu by a
member of the count's family, wbo as
soon as possible gave information Mint
tbey were drlvlug rapidly westward.
As soon us horses (���ould be harnessed
the count himself started In pursuit.
Peter bud provided everything tbat
he and Bonis would be likely to deed,
In the sleigh were warm fur rugs,' -provisions, u bottle of Ibiiior uud au armament of rifles nud pistols. The hitter
were to be used In case tiip escape was
dependent upon resistance, for Peter
argued that (o be cn light meant Siberia
for bim und possibly for Sonla. und the
punishment could not be worse If be
killed a do/.en people. Should lbe pursuers come to close quarters be would
tire ut them, trusting to disable the
horses or those attempting to overhaul
l'he niitumn had set In. nnd already
tliere was plenty of snow, well beaten
for easy going. The pursuing party lost
lime by taking a wrong road and having to retrace I heir steps. It was therefore near midnight before they came
Into the vicinity of the fugitives. The
moment Peter heard Ihe sound of bells
behind him ringing in gallop tune be
heard tlie bark of a single wolf uliead,
then another and another till u whole
pack were bowling.
Sonla and he turned and looked nt
each other. Sonia with despair, lie well
knew tbnt there was uow a double danger. If ihey drove on ihey would be
eaten b.v Ihe wolves. P.eliiad (h^m were
rapture, separation and Siberia. Peter,
rising to the occasion, gave the reins
In Sonia and took up such arms from
the bottom of lhe sleigh as be might
havp occasion lo use. He had Intended
theni for human piirsiiprs. Now he
might need Uie in for l-oih man uud
The lovers hearil lbe Jingling behind
slacken Evidently the burking had
been beard by lbe pursuers. Hut It
was not long beiore the bells again
bespoke a  gallop.
"It's tbe count." said Peter. "I know
him well. He would face ciTtalu death
rather than forego an int of tyrrany."
As tbey drew nearer the wolves Hip
barking not only grew louder, but
came from more ibroats. The moou
wus near the full and lit tbe dark
bodies of the animals coming to meet
tbem. The horses, frightened. stitrtPd
to turn, but Peter gave them the whip,
and (hpy continued In iheir course.
Handing ihe whip to Bonin. he seized
a rifle, and as Ihey sbm through a
dozen wolves one making a lodgment
nn lhe sleigh was drlveu off witb the
iron barrel brought down on lis bend.
The npxt instant another sprinting a\
Sonla rwelvpd it bullet In Its breast between Its tore legs and dropped dead.
Tbls gave thp pack two carcasses to
fight over snd tbe fugitives a brief respite.
Meanwhile the sounds of the approaching party behind thera grew
nearer. Peter attributed lhe count's
pressing on. knowing tbat he was chasing a park of wolves which would turn
upon his party uud devour (hem. to his
mud desire to get possession of Sonla
nnd send hlm and probably ber to Siberia. In ibis be did the mnn Injustice. Doubtless if be caught them
he would take Ills revenge, but be was
a brave man and rpady to risx bis own
life to save thai of others.
As soon as ibe wolves hnrt devoured
the two of their number ihat bod been
klllpd they came on nguin. It seemed
to tbe fugitives tbut coals of fire were
pursuing tbem. the eyes of the beasts
shining out brightly. Again they overtook lhe lovers, und again Peter fired
Into the puck. But by Ibis time, while
the double danger added to bis desperation, his nerves were not so steady
as at first. He tired three shots before
he dropped a wolf. Then he killed two
Sonla laid on the whip, though It
was not necessary, nnd the lovers
drew away, while behind them they
could hear their pursuers upproaching
the wolves. Tben there was a cracking of rifles, a yelping of wounded
animals, the cry of a horse, aud the
sound of hclU ceased.
������The brutes hnve saved us." sold
Peter exultlngly.   "Tbey have downed
u horRp."
The fugitives sped on. hearing again
and again I he crm-klng of a rifle till at
last either the tiring censed or passed
out of  Ileal ing.
The count uud two of his servants
uad not been ns, fortunule as those
they followed. B.v the time they reached the pack the number of wolves hnd
doubled. They fought well, but one
of the wolves sprung at a .horse's
throat and disabled him. Overwhelm
ed, the three ineu. ode after another,
And so It was that a man who wns
trying to recover n fugitive serf Ipst
hls life and carried down with him the
lives of two other persons.
The lovers, being freed from their
pursuers, proceeded with deliberation.
The next evening they reached the
Swedish line, nt tbe head of the gulf
of Bothnia, where they left their conveyance nt an unfrequented spot, on
the east side of the Tornea river, and.
crossing, found themselves In Sweden.
Prom there they made their way to
Christiania'and from thence to America. Setting out toward the west, they
at Inst reached the new territory,
which ls now the stnte of North Dakota, where they found many of their
countrymen and became prosperous
farmers and Peter one of the principal
men ln tbat region.

$1000 Damages. I
In the county court today before
Judge Howay the action for $1000
damages brought against the .city by
George Armitage was dismissed with
costs. At the conclusion of thc plaintiff's case Mr. W. G. McQuarrie, who
acted on hehalf of the city, applied for
a non-suit on the ground that no case
had been made out against the city.
His honor stated that ho would ask
the other side to address him, and
after hearing thc arguments of Adam
S. Johnston for the plaintiff, the Judge
dismissed the case with cods, stating
that no negligence had been shown on
the part of the city and that the
plalntlfl had been guilty of negligence
by using the crossing when he knew
lt to bo slippery, thereby sustaining
certain injuries.

;also dismissed. This appeal was inadj
against a conviction by Justices of the
fence Roe and .Noble at Port Moody
