Many   Licenses  Taken  Out  In   Westminster This Year���Number Advances 33  Per Cent.
If automobiles are any evidence of
prosperity Westminster is a prosperous town. Everybody has noticed
durlnj; the last week or two how the
number of autos has increased on tha
streets of this city. And this Is fully
borne out by the official figures. Since
January 1, 24 new licenses have been
issued at the local provincial police
office. This brings the total number
of cars in town up to approximately
100. That is to say that in the flrst

President of Board of Trade Returns
from Victoria���Co-operation in
Water Connection.
Very much Impressed with the ex-
ceiituc   worn   being  accoiujmsueu   oy
the Island Development   league   and
the Victoria boara of trade, ulr. Duncan, president of the local board, has
i etui ued irom his trip to the capital
more convincej tuan ever ol the need
of "boosting"  Westminster along tne
lines of a sane puoiicity ana tne at-
traction   ol   uiuustnes.     Mr.   Daiicau j
spent a good  li^ai of  time with  Mr.
McUaftney, secittary of the Develop- '
ment league, :>nd with Messrs. Wilson '
and  Uilswortuy, piesident and  seere- |
tary of the board of trade.    He found
all  these  men  very anxious  to  work I
in with Westminster as much as pos- I
sible.   They fully recognized that this '
is a rapidly growing city and    were ,
eager for the two   ports   to act    together tor their mutual advantage.
Among other subjects discussed *as
that of iue boats running between
here and Victoria. Recently the local
boaid of trade was instrumental in
starting the Alaskan on the Westminster, Victoria and Seattle run. Almost
immediately afterwards Victoria merchants assisted the Burin to run between Victoria and this port. This
apparent competition aroused some
resentment on the Fraser, but Mr.
Duncan Btates that the Victorians
gave a full explanation of their action.
Their assistance, it appears, had
practically been promised before they
knew of the Alaskan anl in any case
it only extended over a three months
trial. In Victoria, too, the merchants
feel that thoy want a more frequent
service than the Alaskan can give
them, but they are ready to work in
with Westminster in every way possible for the establishment of good
water connection between the two
cities. On the island, says Mr. Duncan, they feel that a food deal could
be done towards making: the kervics
pay both ways by providing reason
able passenger accommodation on a
boat plying between the two ports.

President Madero announced today

Unrest is general and owing to the

it will be long before peace and order-

Douglas, Arlz.,"tyarch 26.���A story
of robbery, insult and hardshln-etf the
hands of a roving band of Mexicans
was brought here today by Mr. and
Mrs. D. L. Bagby, who, with their little daughter, tied from a mining camp
rttteen mhes east of Bailehaute, Slna-
loa, and forty-five miles from the
nearost settlement where there were
other Americans.
"When we received word from tho
American consul at Culiacan that he
could not protect us, I and my Tamily,
aecompan.ed by Cass Stevens, another
American, started for Culiacana," said
Bagby. "We had gone only a few
miles when we were halted by a rebel
command under Antonio Franca. He
took everything we had, Including
two horses, two mules, four saddles,
four rifles and $700. I asked him for
a receipt, so that we might put in a
claim against the Mexican Government, but he laughed and said that he
did not do business that way with
Gringoes any more.
"lt took us three terrible days ami
i nights to walk to Culiacan. The governor there treated us civilly but advised us to get out of the country, a*
he salu anti-American feeling was
i unniiig high. Leaving him to go to
our hotel, we experienced an illustration of this statement. Stevens and
I were joined on the street by Jack
Kelton, an American. A Mexican
threw a stone and hit Kelton in tha
leg. He started toward his assailant,
but so many of the latter's friends
came out of the shadows, jostling an i
i insulting us, that we were glad to escape to the hotel.   Such Incidents are
I common    at   Culiacan,   from   where
i nearly all foreigners have fled save a
dozen who have mobilized at the
Shipley ranch.
i "Franca sent a demand to the ranch
to deliver up all arms and amunl-
tion. In reply, he was invited to conic
: and tako tnem if he couid. Up to
the time I left, the invitation had noi
betu accepted.
"All aqng the read to the border I

Deadly Germs, Net Bullets, May Decide Future Contests.
The warfare of the future may be a
war between chemists. The nation
with the most ingenious chemists wilt
tie the nation to conquer. Bullets,
-hells and explosives will be replaced
by a series *.l the most death-dealing
germs and poisons known to scieupe,
says Pearson's Weekly.
First of all, a shell will be filled
with germs of cholera, typhoid, or
smallpox. Fired into a besieged town,
these dreadful shells will do their
ieadly work far mure effectively than
any melanite, lyddite, or other explosive ever invented.
The thickest armor plate or the
heaviest guns in the world will be
useless against, them. In a week the
besieged city would be a mere pesti-
tence-laden graveyard Which even tbe
enemy would think twice about entering.
Germ warfare is only a part of the
new system of warfare t1 at tha British admiralty is now considering. An-
ather idea of the inventor is a shell
filled with a material that will literally set the atmosphere on lire.
When this shell bursts over a town or
lamp tbe air will be filled with biasing red-hot specks ^hat will settle
down and burn everything within
reach. The atmosphere itsel: will become lo heated that no living being
would exi- in its for more than a few
The fog shell -has long been the
iream oi the war offices of various
nations. Such a shell is now actually
under coi.sideration.
Whsn the fog shell explodes the air
ior hundreds oi yards around the spot
will be filled with a thick, dense fog
worse than any "London particular."
The biggest dreadnought in the
world would be rendered useless in a
few minutes with one of these shells,
snd '.hat without injuring her in any
way! Sh:: would simply be shut in Dy
the fog, ft fog so thick that no searchlight can penetrate it. A few torpedo
boats, once the fog shell had been
Sired, could sink tl eir huge enemy
with practically no danger whatever
io themselves.
Perhaps the most horrible part ul
the new invention is "Blindite." As
its name implies, it is a ghastly substance, which blinds anyone within
reach. Enough "Blindite" ean be ) ut
in an ordinary rifle bullet to blind a
dozen people.
A shell filled with "Blindite" would
blind everyone within 100 yards' radius. Such a shell, exploding over a
ivarship, would leave it as helpless
is a mouse in a cat's home. The inventor himself discovered thia chemical quite accidentally, an'i "as nearly blinded at the time.
Now that such ideas .ar.1 actually
oeing seriously considered it is tn be
^oped that they will lis carried
(hrough and approved ot. The very
possibilities of the horrors that war
will bring in its .ra.l thtii will keep
nations at peace.
Th;  Gender of Stamps.
Never had there been such a commotion in the little flat. And the

His Invention to Do Away With
The New Fuel, Which Was Designed to
Run Factories at 75 Cents a Day,
Wrecks the Kitchen Range and the
Inventor's Hopes of Fortune.
ICopyrtetat. Uli,  by  Associated Literary
IT was 7 o'clock the other evening
when a boy left aweary sack of
something nt the basement door
of the Bowser mansion, and Mr.
bowser lost no time ln conveying specimens of lt up to the sitting room for
Mrs. Bowser's Inspection. Tbey looked
like chunks of asphalt dug up from an
old pave ment. and she turned from
them wltb tbe remark:
"1 suppose somebody bas been after
you again with a patent of some sort
or other."
"Have you tbe slightest Idea wbat
Ihnt something or other IsV" asked Mr.
Bowser wltb a complacent smile.
"Perhaps It's cement to fix the boles
In the cellar?"
Hs Is Statistical.
"My dear woman, I nm not In tbe
rnneiit husiness this evening. It Is not
cement, uor Is it compressed food for
tbe cut. It Is not u microbe killer nor
o modi destroyer. Wlll you kindly listen to me for'a moment while I give
you some facts and figures?"
"Go on."
' "To bent tbls house and do tbe cooking we consume twenty tons of coal
per year. The conl man may cheat us
out of tit least four tous. The coal must
be dug from the bowels of tho earth,
rnlsed to the surface, londed on the
cars, transported, unloaded tigalu, ioad-
"iltUdOKS, MBS. UOWSEIt, mii.monh!"
ed into carls nnd delivered, nnd even
than   must   be  handled  aguin, to say
nothing or the ashes.   Can't you see
why it rants so much?"
������Of course."
-We nre only one of 5.000.000 fnmi-
lies anion coul. nud there nre all tbe
���hope nnd factories besides. Suppose
tvp hud ii substitute for coal, something which needed scarcely any hnn-
dlinj;. irnve nut Ove times the bent und
lefl UO nshes behind. Whnt would
thai substitute be worth to America ���
lo tbe world nt large? No dust, no
���alien, no giving 1.700 pounds for a tou.
no clinkers and no waste."
"I thought you had been taken in
again." leplled Mrs. Bowser, wltb a
Tho Discovery.
"Oh. yon did? Very tind of yon, In
deed: Well, my friend, I'm going to
disappoint you this time. I'm going"
to revolutionize tbe fuel of the world.
I'm ttolng to knock out conl untll It
wont be worth 60 cents n ton. Right
here before your eyes Is something
which Is going to bring me In millions
of dollars In the next few years nnd
make the mime of Bowser a household
word nil over tbe civilized world. Millions. Mrs. Bowser, millions!"
And he thrust his thumbs Into the
trmholm of hls vest and walked up
aud down before her, and the cat came
out from under the piano nnd walked
after dim.
������Well?" she said to break the long
"Well." he replied. "I will simply
���ay lo you this evening that 1 will
beet our house from now ou for 10
cents per week, nnd I will run n steam-
boul from New York to London for
$2.1. I nni now going down to (be

1 haven't been wasting m.v money on
a spring tonic or n lightning rod.
You've somehow got the lden thut I
don't know enough to buy turnips nt
30 ccnM n bushel, but 1 rather think
I'll astonish you."
The Experiment.
Mrs. Bowser realized thnt the experiment would be curried to some sort
of finish,, no mnl'er whnt she snld,.
snd she therefore held her pence, nnd
Mr. Bowser gathered up HI* specimen*
snd descended to tbe basement.
"And. tinw Is It auoiher fooiln'
sround with ihe hot wuter pipes tu the
gnu meter'.'" nuked the cook, who knew
ninieitilim of his experimental nniure.
"M.v dciir woinuii. I nm going to us-
tofitsb vo:i ns well ns benefit you.'' re-
tilled Mr. Bowser as he approached
the mm;!'.
"You've astonished me before. ��lr.
���nd 1 wuiit oo more of It:   ls it tbe
conl gas you nre goin' to try nnd bottls
np aud make a cure for the wboopln'
"Be calm and frnr nol.  Tou see this

kitchen after this,  .lust ruke out what |
little (Ire there ts. will you, so tbat 1
can start afresh?"
"There'll be u bobbery of some sort.
You know there ullus Is."
"Never you mind about bobberies.
I've got n dead sure thing In this, and
there's barrels ot money In lt. You
came from Ireland, 1 believe?"
"I did. sir."
"Well, within two weeks all Ireland
wlll be talking about Bowser's new
fuel, nnd It will probably be mentioned
In tbe papers that you were the first
cook (o use It."
"It's more likely tbey wlll be sayin'
I've left my place, bin git along with
yon and.have It over* with."
Tho Explosion.
Mr. Bowser put In paper and kindlings, added a liberal quantity of his
uew fuel nnd then stood buck. Things
went off with a rush, nnd ho stood
back nnd rubbed his hands and whispered:
"Only one pound of my patent fuel ln
there, und Just feel the bent! The fuel
question Is solved. You could put n
ronst of beef In Ihnt oven and have It
fit for the table In an hour. My dear
woman. I'll lie running cotton factories for 75 cenls a dny und driving
locomollves 1.000 miles for u dollar!
Do you observe? Do you feel? Do
you realize a h"ndred(h part of what
tbls means to the civilized world?"
The cook had opened her mouth to
sny that sbe thought her wages ought
to be rnlsed $2 n montli when there
wns a low rumbling, a trembling ot
the whole range, nnd the next instant
the covers (lew up to the ceiling, the
doors banged open and n burst of dame
filled the kitchen. Mr��. Bowser, from
the room nlinve. beard a howl from
the cut. n scronni from the cook and a
yell from Mr. Bowser, and she knew
what had happened. She couldn't gc
down for Uie smoke, but us she opened
the fronl dour the trio came flying out
of (he basement to roll on the snow in
the back yard.
The Fire.
It wasn't much of n lire. The seven
or eight pedestrians who rushed in and
upset everything and Hooded water all
over the floors soon had It out. and In
the course of a quarter of nn hour tbe
open doors nud windows had freed
the house of smoke. Mr. Bowser sat ���
on the lounge, with red eyes and singed
hair, and Mrs. Bowser finally faced
him and asked:
"Well. sir. any further experiments
(his evening, nr will you wait until tomorrow night?"
"Wo-wonuin." he gasped ns he lifted his bands and bulged bis eyes, "lt
was���wns you!" I
"Why. whht did 1 do?" '       M

This question puzzled scientists 'lor
many years. They knew that in varying degrees of intensity t i eurfaca
of the sea became luminous, so much
so, in fact, tli: t sometimes on a
moonless night iU effu^-i.c3 pales the
stars, makes thi heavens appear coal
black and causes every wave that
breaks to appear as a shower of light.
But how far down did this light extend?
With the advent of improved meth-
ods oi deep gea soundings tlle qne.-tion
was partly settled by the capture of
self-luminant fishes. These denizens
of tliose vast depths, it was discovered, carry about their ov 1 electric
light installation, so to speak, being
able to render themselves luminous
or the reverse at will. To what extent
tiiis faculty prevails is unknown, because our knowledge of li.'e in those
awful depths is very limited; but it
may be noted that the majority of
tho e abssal lidi have no means of
lighting themselves up, as it were.
The extraordinary lish that do have
this faculty contain a system of animal lighting which i.s, without exaggeration, more akin to an electrical In.
stallation than anything else. One of
the-e queer little fish was caught not
far from the coast of the United
States in a depth of nearly 1S.00O,
feet, or more than three miles below
the surface of the ocean. It has enormous eves in proportion to its sizo
and on the under side of its body it
is provided with a number oi tiny
lamps, little globular points arransed
in a sequence of longitrdinal lines
from gills to tail, with short spurs
running up the sides. Many specimens of similar fi-li have b;en se urrd
and all are different, so that it would
he useless to attempt their description
in full. The great question of it
all is, were these lowly creatures provided wit.i such lights because lhe
sun licht could not penetrate to their
great depths?   Who can say?
These few specimens out ol a creat
number will serve to give an idea rtf
the  extraordinary  system  of self-illumination existing among the inhabitants of the ocean's profound depths).
But   this   is   not   all.    Comparatively
few of the denizens of the mighty ce p
pu about with lights.   By far the greater  number pass on  their slimy ways
in appalling darkness. Wonderful ami

The shooting of Police Constable

��a once more the .dangers that our
policemen run t.ip..the everyday discharge of tlieir.^ity!- There is little
xlamor about a constable's life. His
death may sometimes be sensational,
but it is seldom romantic.

to look with respect on the guardians

tor the, opinions expressed by Its correspondents.)
Editor Daily News.
Sir,���In perusing the pages of your
valuable paper l notice m tlie last .
two issues an article ahout Mormon
elders working bere in this city, which
is very true. But the author of the
article is trying to dis.ibuse the minds
of the people, where he says they try
not to aiouse the suspicions oj the
people that they are not from Utah.
The tract he makes mention of, denies this fact, for on the front cover
is printed a taclsmlle of the great
Mormon temple of Salt Lake City,
also the words Temple block, Salt
Lake City, are there, while on the
back cover Is a faclsmlle of the Book
of Mormon and these words are in
large letters, Book of Mormon. The
gentleman is also mistaken when ho
states that our communications are
to the women only. We are pleased
to deliver these tracts to all men,
women or children who wiU accepi
them for the purpose of reading them
for the information there is in them
We are not ashamed of the fact that
we are a Mormon Klder as we are
called, and the new gospel that la
spoken of in the article is none other
night, that by   tbeir   very   presence
prevent his houaetXrom being robbed,' than that which was preached by the
Ills goods from being stolen,   if there  Saviour and his apostles
is  trouble or tfBjn'ger anywhere they
send for the polfcfe.   If the officer hap
pens to be shot or hurt In some way
they may exclaim hysterically that
the brave man died doing his duty.
But. that is not what the policeman
himself wants. He does not indulge
in heroics, but lie does like to be
considered as a huipan being. To feel
always that he is a man respected by
the whole community, as indeed he
is by the best part of lt, would be a
much greater recompense for the difficulties of his life than a public funeral
after his death.
There ls, however, a more tangible
way  of  showing  public  appreciation
of our police foroes throughout   this
province.    That is to grant them    a
pension.    During the last session of
parliament a movement was set   on
foot by the Chief Constables' Association of British Columbia to ask   the
government  to  provide  pensions  for
the  force.    No steps,  however, have
.apparently jpegf 'taken.    In  common
Justice this reform should be pushed
through.    But it sliotild not be left to
-the police themselves to iln tbe work.
The  whole publie -should  demand  it-
A policeman while alive does not receive a rate of pay in proportion  *">
the danger and risk of bis calling. Hia
���.salary can hanUy.iba sai d even Lo be
proportionate to his    hours    of duty .
��� certainly  not to    his    responsibility.
And today he bas not even tbe com
fort  of   thinking   that  bia  wife   and
children���P. C. Byers leaves a newly
married wife���will be provided for if

deal.    They**rcHirthe highest sense

These remarks do not apply to the
jiolice of thesiitononly. They apply
.to t.nise oi t-.Ki .municipalities an.i
.province too. As the rate of pay for
the latter u lower than lu the cities
so is a peiutyn* pe;haps even more
urgent in thAirJfcase. But in every
case the public -should see that justice
ia done. Representatives in the
Mouse at Victoria, in the city and
. municipal councils should be ap-
, preached and every candidate for the
people's franchise should be made to
declare himself" on this question. The
reform should ,bp. demanded urgently
and put Into operation at once.

Air. A. McGill, chief analyst of tho
department of inland tevenue, in ;i
bulletin which lie has just issued on
the s.ibject, suys the Ottawa K.ee
PreBB. He points out that drugs with
a potent eftect'as a heart dejjiessaut
are used in these headache cu.es.
"I'lify should not be disguised in
lozenge form," he declares. "They
are sufficiently dangerous to warrant
every precaution, against excesH use."
Over ;'.00 eamplps of headache pow-
tijlera were    examined, uud in    many

��� drugs, without any declaration on the
label   and   without   being     Ntamped,
These  would   come    under the  penal
.���sections of the act.
Another statement, Mr. McGill
makes is that claims of "sure, certain,
or instantaneous" cure are unwarranted, and misleading. This misdescription or misbranding should be made
punishable under the act. Another
<:hangc he advocates ls that the commonly accepted . names of the drugs
should be placed on the outside of

names which make it impossible Tor

New Code of Civil Law Came in With
Ou the first of the year a new cede
of civil law came   into  operation   in
Switzerland.   In many respects it embodies a radical change from laws pre-
wously existing, and especially so in
regard to the legal status of women.
Whether   in    Switzerland   there   has
been going on a suffragette agitation !
is not recorded;  it may be that the
consciences of    the Swiss    husbandi j
and fathers required no such spuirlng
as they have received in England, and
that they  were  ready to deal  justly 1
by their   women    folks without   the j
brickbat argument.      Under the new
code the women of Switzerland have
not the right to vote, but they  have
all   other  lights    of  any  importance
that the men enjoy.   The unwisdom of
granting    the    franchise    to   women
would be more marked In Switzerland
probably  than   in   many  other  countries, -since  every  male    Citizen is 'fr
EOldler, and the:e would be strong objections to enfranchising   a majority
of the population  unable   bear arms.
The Marriao^ Systems.
Hithcvto the Swiss woman has been
regarded as a minor, but henceforth
lf she is married her earnings will bs
her own.    If she Is a widow she can
claim the sole legal r.uardlanshio ol
her children.   She can dispose of her
\ propeity by will without the consen-.
of her husband or children,    subject
only to the same restrictions that apply to men;  ani she can choose under which of three different systems
of  mirrlge  settlement  she  will  live
with her husband.   The three syitems
aro    based respectively cn umou   ol
goods, community of goods, or, as in
ilngiand   and   Canada,   separation  of
goods.   Should she choose the second
or third system it must be specified in
the  marriage    contract, otherwise it
will be assumed that the   prevailing
system   of union of goods   governs.
'I his means that the wife is to be the
legal  owner of  anything she  has at
the time of marriage and of any inheritance    she may  afterwards recelvs.
The    husband has the   management
and enjoyment of such property wltii
certain  restrictions.    He may  inves'. 1
the wife's money and receive the in- 1
come, but on demand he must render j
an  accounting   of    his   stewardship, j
Should  his   management   be unsatis- 1
factory he can be forced to turn over
tbe property to his wife, who there-1
upon   becomes  partly  responsible for I
debts.    When  soods are thus  separated the husband Is compelled to give |
his wife, in addition io her own prjp-
erty, one-third 01  his property In excess of what he possessed at the lime
of the marriage.

should    tlie   husband  become    bank- 1
nipt,  however,  the  contract i.s  automatically dissolve 1. and the wife has'
the same lights    as In the union ot |
goods.   That is to say, the wife may
claim  that,    half  her pioperty  be re- '
stored to her, and as regards the oth- j
er half, sl]e takes her place as an ordinary creditor,    The system of sep-
arallon  of goods makes the  wife en- 1
tirely   free  and   responsible   for  a-li I
her actions and debts, but    her   husband may demand a contribution from
her own   personal  income or  means
to any jointly  Incurred expense such
as   housekeeping.       Snould   the   husband  become  bankrupt, the wife en-
Joys no privileged position.    It ought
to be remarked   that, the  wlfe'B general freedom is limited to prevent her

Marriage  an^   Divorce.
The new code raises the marriageable age from Hi to 18 in the case o(
women and from IS to tt) in the caws
of men; but for all persons under th��
ago of 21 tho consent of parents or
guardians is required before a marriage call'be performed. Even cer-
tuitt  persons  over that age,  such as
1 may be forbidden to marry for thre��
years, and the court may in its dis-
' cretion refuse the custody of the
children to either father or mother.
Separations are also granted as under
Britisli law, and the wife can secure
a separation if she show that to continue living with her husband endangers her health or her good name. In
such a case she can claim maintenance.
Authority of Guar::;ans.
Powers  bestowed    on public guar-
If the father is a drunkard, all control over his children may be takea
away from him, and deposited in tha
mother alone. Other laws tend to
ameliorate the position of unmarried
mothers. Fathers of Illegitimate
children are obliged to contribute to
their support according to their own
social position, and to continue the
support until the child has reached
the age of 18.

Montroal, March 20.���The N. H. A.
players have left for the Paciflc
Coast and all-star games.
The ten players represent three
\ teams In the big hockey association.
Fiom Quebec comes Moran, Malone
and Macdonald. From Ottawa, Ro-
nau, Darragh and Shore will accompany the local delegation with
Sprague, Odle, Cleghorn and Fred
Taylor headed by the Wanderers'
captain and promoter of the trip, Art
Koss, aaml'
The Ottawa men including Taylo",
;' were not with'the'""party''when th6y
left, but they will jolp them at the
��� capital.
On paper the players opposing each
other ln these contests are the fourteen best men In the Dominion. Other things being equal the matches
should be rattling good ones. Not
only are the All-Stars going west with
the full consent of N. H. A., but Art
Hoss has been l.nlormally commissioned to bring about an understanding with the British Columbia league
wuicn win be better for tne game in
general as well as for the two controlling bodies ln the winter pastime.
Next Saturday the Vancouver Y. M.
C. A. will pay a visit to the local institution ln order to take part ln a
joint paper chase.
Another good game was played in
the semi-final of the senior basketball
league at the Y. M. C. A. last night,
in wliich Kvans' team beat Whue'a
rather easily by 22 points to 10. This
puts the winners ln the final where
they will have to meet either Dough-
-erty's or Fader's team. Tnese two
will play off on Thursday evening.
Yesteiday evening Kvans' team consisted of Blrchfleid, Oreyell, Smith,
Dawe and Kvans. White's team was
Porter, Smithers, Henderson, McDonald and White.

Lit! for happiness and fame in a new
way. At the request of the Minister
of Public Instruction of France aha
will go on an official mission ns head
of an expedition to southern Morocco
for the purpose ol studying the social
condition and handicrait of the natives. Since many of theso tribes are
avowedly hostile to France tlie mission is regarded as being dangerous
in the extreme, but the intrepid Mme.
Pu Gast eagerly accepted the opportunity offered her to again brsve clanger. It will be her third visit to the
Moors and she expects to po among
the nomad tribes to tell them that
France is their friend, incidentally
obtaining authoritative information
concerning their customs and their
feelings   toward  h��r country.
Tho whole world knows of Mme.
Dut Gast as a sportswoman. Her exploits ara thrilling ancl they are indulged in from pure love cf excitement, for she is wealthy. Aside from
her love of adventure, Mme. Du Gssl
is not the least bit manish. On the
contrary she is divinely feminine.
There is no finer figure in all Paris
and when she appears in evening
dress in the salons she is the most
neatly admired of women. For years
she has been a popular idol on the
boulevards, whether afoot, ou horseback, or in her favorite motor car.
The only ill-natured comments come
Irom envious  rivals in society.
As a sample of her daring it Is related that several years t" i sli wished to enter a motor car race from
Paris to Madrid, but the authorities
refused. Balked in her desire to see
how close she could come to a terrible death and yet escape, she took
to traveling among the clouds. Taking lessons Worn Santos Dumont, she
made several flights over Paris with
tliat distinguished Brazilian, lt failed to satisfy her because they remained too close to the housetops ol the
City. Nothing but the clouds would
suit her purpose, so she had a balloon
made to or.ler, with a spacious wicker-
work car in whicli she could read,
lunch on chicken and champagne,
and perhaps fare death.
Gradually this balloon became a
tiresome thing, its only redeeming
feature being tba possibility of an
accident, which would compel her to
take to the parachute. Ah. that was
a happy thought I She would not wait
for an accident. She would know the
sensations of descent by parachute
without having to wait for so troublesome thing as the happening of some
accident. One might know her French
origin just by this.
Se .ted in the car of her balloon on��
day, at a height oi a mile and a hall
above the green fields to the north of
Paris, Mine. Du Gest testjd every part
Of  the   apparatus,  secured   hurself  to

notoriety-seeking Parisian figured only
as the unknown widow of a man who
made a fortune by selling furnishing
poods on the installment plan ancl
letting out clothes for hire. It has
required fifteen yeBM of sensational
recklessness to force her way from
obscurity to recognition as the most
daring sportswoman in the world.
Such a woman will make good cm her

is certain.

The statement of a Chicago baao-

In the article referred to, the Item
of salaries ls given as $69,000. The

probably the highest of all), Is pliced
by Mr. Dreyfuss at over $100,000. Said

Advertising Quebec.
Advices from London state that the
visit there of Hon. Charles R. Devlin, the Minister of Colonization of
the sister province, is resulting in a
distinct boom for Quebec interests.
He has made it clear that the Quebec Government has no intention of
minimizing the work done by the
Federal Government in advertising
Canada as a whole, but he lays stress
upon the desire of his colleagues to
create a home in London for visitors
from Quebec and to interest British
investors in the opportunities which
Quebec offers to them!
The Quebec Government is not looking with as much earnestness for settlers as are some of the other provinces, but it is quite evidently awake
to the advantages of publicity as regard." the industrial openings and the
sporting attractions which the province has, and the new Agent-General.
Dr. Pelletier, will have in his new
offlce a continuous up-to-date exhibit
of all that Quebec has to offer to the
capitalist, the tourist and sportsman.
Mr. Devlin, who enjoys the distinction of being the only Minister of the
crown in Canada who has had seat*
in three Parliaments in the Kmpire,
has been areatly (eted by his old
friends at Westminster .and especially
by the Irish party, of which he was
oiice so valuable a member-Ottawa
