WHE A T ELM /A TORS
FOR WESTMINSTER
Are Assured If Harbor Made Suitable Says Mayor Lee-
Member Working Quietly at Ottawa-Millisn Dollars Will
Be Asked for Bylaws of Great Importance.
TO BEARD LION     TWO KILLED BY
N lilS OWN DEN
"I have it from the very best authority that when wheat elevators are
established on the coast, they will be
or.-'the Fraser, and at New Westmin.
ster, if our harbor Is made suitable."
Om ing the course of an interview
yesterday. Mayor Lee made the above
sta'ement, and lt, therefore, in the
tlrst place rests with the people of
this city to initiate the harbor scheme
by voting money whicli veiy shortly
will be asked for, in order to make
a beginning upon a work which. If the
well-laid plans of the mayor and council come to frui-'.ion, will see Westminster through the co-operation of
lhe government, ln possession of shipping and terminal facilities unrivalled
on the Paciflc coast.
"It is quite true," said his worship,
"that the member for Vancouver appeals to be korklng zealously for es
tablishment of government elevators
in tire, cliy he represents, but although
we aie not quite so demonstrative in
our methods, you may taite it fiom
me Westminster is not being neglected. Our own memlier is in touch
with the situation and is doing the
best of work."
"iu about three weeks time," said
the mayor, "we expect to have ready
the batch of bylaws upon whose pre-
1 a. a tion we have been engaged far
some 'time past. Roughly the total
sum we shall then be asking for will
amount to one million dollars. The
list of bylaws will 7e thus: Harbor
impiovement, establishment of a municipal gaB plant, further street improvements, parks improvement, waterworks extension and storage in a
new reservoir, erection of the new
���hospital, building of a new police station and storehouse.
"Regarding the latter we find that
it will be much chen^er and more efficient to combine the two."

Interview   South   Vancouver   Council
on Interurban Road���Traffic to
White Rock.
The time has come when the alleged discrimination against Westminste:, and falsification of facts
concerning this city with intent to
mislead people is to be checke*.
Last night at the board of trade
meeting Mr. B. 0. Walker outlined a
scheme of which the author is Mr.
Otway Wilkie, by which proper information concerning this city and
the whole Fraser valley may be disseminated among the new arrivals in
the pioviuce. The suggestion was
outlined in yesterday's issue of the
Daily .News, and amounts to bear.ll.ag
the lion in his own den, the lion bf-
ing Vancouver, where an Information
office wtllbe oiened.
The board favored the adoption oi
the scheme, and appointed Messrs
J. G. Robson, W. J. Kerr and Edgar
Sands a committee to to into thc
matter.
Touching upon the reports ln thc
press of the slighting allusions tr
this city, Mr. Walker aaid that tht
action of Mr. H. H. Stevens, M. P.
in advising North Vancouver to keei
its waterfront values low as there
was no other place on the coast
where industiles might locate, unless
tlrey went to San Francisco, was one
of absolute disrrrimination. He also
commented on recent remarks of
Reeve May. of North Vancouver:

Mr. T. D. Sherri.T spo^e favorably
upon Mr. W'llkie's scheme, and gave

The chairman reported on the re
cent trip to the barbor works. He
said that he bad seen most of the
i'lig waterways of t'ie worl.1, but In
the Frarer the scheme was compain-
tivelv nominal. "Westminster knows
itself now. Let other places bicktr
nnd say what they like about us. We
ran get boats up from the sea inside cf half nn hour, lf we keep
working strenuously we will get
what we want."
Mr. Edgar Sands brought up the
.ate of freight transportation on
the G. N. li. between here and White
Rock in rarrtculnr. Where last summer a daily freight service was In
force, this year three times a week
was the rule. Westminster merchants were also somewhat to blame
but. goods on an average took a week
to ro 18 miles on that route.
Mr. VV. F. Butcher explained that
thus facilities at Westminster werr
such ub to prevent nny better arrangements being made.
Thn president, vice-nresident and
secretary were appointed a committee to Relect two members to attend
tbe confeience of western boards of
trade which Is to be held at Calgary
June 28 nnd 29. upon the subject of

a number of British manufacturers

track. The accident followed a fine
display of flying. Turpin himself
was only badly bruised and cut about
t$t face.
J If lt had not been for the aviator's
Pluck the accident might have been
much worse. Turpin had completed
a, flieht and was descending at tbe
t��te of 50 miles an hour. Just as be
was going to land, an unknown man
rin right acio&s his path and to
avoid cutting this man's head off, the
aviator tilted hls plane3 and rose
above  him.
.Fcr one dreadful moment it looked
t4 the people in the grand stand as if
the huge machine would plunge into
tlieir midst. Turpin. however, saw
this dancer, too. Risking his own
lite rather tjiia those of the spectators he lowered the planes again and
rap head-on into the boarding below
the boxes. The aeroplane crumpled
up like matchwood and the machinery fell Into the crowd below, injuring many persons. Those hurt were
rushed to the hospital ln automobiles.
One man died in the hospital before
he was identified and it is feared that

Very Inserting Was Discussion of Fraser Valley Representatives-Many Difficulties and Remedies Suggested���
Meeting Resolves Into Commission of EnquLy.
"That this convention of representatives from the various municipalities of the Fraser valley, is of the
opinion that it is necessary to ta^e
immediate steps to counteract the
great Importation of lood stuffs
which, in oxr view, can be grown
within our own province to the great
benefit of producer and consumer
equally. Be it lesoivcd tha't we
hereby term ourselves into a commission of enquiry with power to
add to our number, wi;h a view to
presenting data to the government
and asking for the appointment of a
royal commission of enquiry."
This ls the tangib.e result of a
memorable conference held yesterday af tei noon in the board of trade,
rooms wih a view to ttie Westmin
ster boar I of trade co-oj.e.at;ng with,
and gaining the opinions of the various Fiaser valley boards in an endeavor to piovide a remedy to
check the tremendous leakage of
money from the province which i��
now going into the pockets of foreign producers of food stuff3 which
could be grown here.
Those   Present.
Mr. John R. Duncan, president of
the board cf trade, occupied the
chair, and there were present Messrs.
H. T. Thrift, White Rock; C. E. Hope
and C. E. Pellot, Langley; R. C. Abbott, Mission; J. H. H. Nelson, Abbotsford: A. B. McKenzie, Chilliwack; F. Fraser, B. G. Walker, Burnaby; .Mayor Lee, Alderman White.
Aide; man Curtis., E. C. Traves. chairman of the agricultural committee of
the Westminster board of trade;
Marshall Sinclair. J. W. Irwin. Moses
B. Cotsworth,  D.   E.  MacKenzie  and
C. H. Stuart Wade.
A great dsal of expert Information
was iivon at tbe meeting, and many
suggestions made fcr tbe betterment
of conditions. Summarised It appears
that co-operation will effect a great
to
to Washington State where he found
that the land there waa no better
than that of the Fraser valley, but
more was grown on It than here ln
B. C. Simple co-operation was the
reason of the success there. He cited instances of men holding five and
ten acres and achieving excellent results. The disparity of railroad ratea
was evidenced by the statement thac
despite the duty on American fruit,
the Washington grower could undersell the B. C. man in the'Winnipeg
or Vancouver market.
Mr. Moses B. Cotsworth here observed tbat since the readj lstment ot
the power of the railways In England,
her trade had grown immensely. A.
similar adjustment was needed in.
Canada.
Aldeiman Curtis thought that if the-
Delta land were  split  up into small
holdings   its   productivity   would    be
increased,  and   where  there  is  now
one man there should be 40 to 100.
Three Chief Problems.
The three    problems    facing    the
province said  Mr.    F.    Fraser, were
land settlement, land    clearing    and
land cultivation.    In 1910 $14,000,00*
went out of B. C, last year $17,000,-
000, and this year it was likely   that
$20,000,000 would go    for purchasing-
food stuffs.  We had the land, but not
the  men  to  occupy  it.   He  believed
that this was no poor mail's country,
but that    a    system  of ready  made
farms would work to mutual advantage.    Real  estate  men    bad    done
yeoman service in bringing out settlers.
If a man had enough ' money to
make a start on a small holding, he
could make a good living on it, said
Mr. C. E. Pellot. of Langley.
Mr. C. H. Stuart Wade suggested
tliat government logging outfits
would do much to aid the new settler
together  with   the    establishment  of
deal of roo J to piesent producers; new roads. Cnder proper culth ation

Stops   Proceedings   Against   Three   I.
W. W. Agitators���Civil Cases
Begun in Afternoon.
When the evidence was all in fcr
the ciown in the cases against Collins, McCarthy and Nelson, on a
charge of unlawful assembly at Yale
on Apiil 13, in the assize court yesterday, Judge Clement stopped the
proceedings and allowed the men to
go free. He said that there had been
no evidence submitted to convict
them on the charge, although tbere
was on another���Inciting to murder.
But there was no indictment against
them on the latter charge.
With the above ease the criminal
assizes came to an end. The case of
Oscar Mr.rmey, charged with wounding John Make at Cot]ultlam on
April 25. was remanded to the next
session on the request of the crown
council because its witnesses were
not available.
During the afternoon a beginning
was made in the case of Saunders
against the municipality of Surrey
for'damages for injuries received
while the plaintiff wss driving over
a bridge In the municipality last
August. It Is alleged the bridge was
not kept in condition for safe travel-
Ihe. The defence Is that the man
did not know how to handle a borse
and also that the animal was not
safe to drive.
Y. M. C. A. NOTES.

Uige in ppmpetingr With American
produce; that specialization mu&t be
followed; "that some better system
of clearing land should be found, and
that while the Fraser valley can produce the very best, Vt has not at
present enough farmers and settlers
to supply the local markets with food
'stuffs.
Decreased Meat Supply.
Mr. E. C. Traves was the first
speaker. He said that in his own
line, that of the meat business, during the past three yeais local produce had dropped 70 per cent. There
was no meat to be had locally; nearly all the eKgs and butter he handled came from outside the province,
from the States or Australasia. He
suggested that ranchers go ln more
for mixed farming.
Mr. J. H. H. Nelson, of Abbotsford
followed. He gave eome interesting
particulars of land settlement In his
vicinity, where through the working
of real estate agents some 35 new
settlers had come In during the past
few months. Personally, be would
not like to tie himself down to a
five-acre plot. Price of this land was
from $400 to $500 per acre, and it
cost some $"5 to $150 per acre to
clear lt
Five Acres Too Small.
Mr. R. C. Abbott of Mission was
dead against the flve acre plot system, contending that one needed 40
acres, or at least enough room to
grow grain to feed roultry and so
obviate the scan lalo.rs prices charged
for imported grain. He was inter-
csted in f uit chiefly, end thought
that mixed farming in the Fraser valley was a thing of the past. What
was wanted was more garden truck,
fruit and chicken raising. As to butter, It did not pay to make It. milk
being In such demand. He told of
the strides that his district had al-
realy made In the raisins of rhubarb and ben lea, ."nd dealt with
various phases of the raising snd
marketing    of    this    produce.      The
and export goods alao.

problem was the clearing of the land.
He thought that scientists should be
Induced  to Invent a solution  of  the-
difficulty..
The preceding resolution was then
moved by Mr. R. C. Abbot and seconded by kr. A. B. McKenzie, anl
carrlei unanimously. Mr. John R.

of Organization. |
The National Reserve now number^
two veterans of the Fenian Raid
among its 70 members. Mr. D. W.
Bray of this city, was one of the flrst
to join with the movement. He belonged to the 52nd Battalion cf Canadian Volunteers In which te was a
private;
Yesterday Capt. Hugh Brewster
from the Fraser Valley, signed up at
maTnead was for co-operation and   the City Hall.   He held that rank in
condensation of    sales   through one   the famous Peel battalion, 36th Regl
channel.
White   Labor   Question.
Upon the labor question, Mr. Abbott mad* some rematks. He said
that white men coulrl not be employed unle��B lota were btsrer, that
the' iarmers were confronted
the problem of securing labor for two
months tn the year, and then had to
emplov yellow, Indian and white labor, the latter of 'lhe hobo order
mostly. If holdings were larger,
men could be employed all the year
round and have room to live.
Mr. C. fl. Hope of Langley* favored the small holdings. In hi�� '!b-
trict. although land was high priced
be-
ment, and besides being one of the-
pioneers of Winnipeg, which he*
leached In 187$, was engaged on thas
construction of the C. P. R. through.
the Koc'des.
Every day sees men of similar re-
wi'th ��or<1 'or meritorious service joining
t**.e movement. ' Many of them are In
the prime of life and tbe number
wbleh has come forward in the short
three weeks that have elapsed since
the reserve was initiated gives promise of Westminster setting a brilliant
example to the whole of Canada.

Victoria Council Passes Bylaw���
Mayor Beckwith Opposed.
Victoria, May 30.���By the passing
of the bylaw providing for the abolition of the ward system the city council last night acquiesced in the wish
of the majority of fhe electors of the
city as expressed by referendum at
the last civic election, and at the next
chic election aldermen will be elected by the votes of the people of the
city at large in the same manner a?
tho mayor.or, members of the school
board. Aiderman Okell, Porter and
Cuthbert voted against the motion
approving of the change. By Its action the council terminated a s-stem
of representation in force since the
incorporation of Victoria as a self-
governing community. ._
i Alderman Stewai t, who introduced
the bylaw, expressed the opinion that
many ratepayers desire the ward system abolished, but personally he believed that it would be a serious mistake and that it would only be a short
time .before a return to the existing
system would be made. Most of the
cities in ,the old land and in Canada
had tlie ward system, which would indicate that it is a success. With aldermen elected by the city at large it
would likely result in a majority of
them being selected from one particular section und naturally that particular section would be well looked after
wliile others would be neglected. But
as the majority of the electors who
voted upon the referendum were in
favor of the change, perhaps it would
be better to let them have an opportunity of trying out the new system.
Mayor Beckwith personally believed
that if the wards were abolished it
would be but a short time before the
old system weie again reverted to.
The only city in Canada that he knew
of which adopted the system >vas
Hamilton, Ont.. and there the wail
system was returned to. But us the
electors desired the change there did
not appear any other course brrt to
meet their wishes.

What the woman's idea could have
been in so planning a "plant" upon
the other members of the tribe is unknown anl can enly be guessed at,
but the Indians are so excited over
the case that they have asked for a
full investigation and ttie matter has
been trausferred by the Indian Department to the attorney-general of I
Atanioba, with a request that he shall
put the Provincial police at work and
ascertain the real facts of the case.

Victoria, May 30.���Robert Kelly,
head of the well-known wholesale
firm of Kelly, Douglas & Co.. Vancouver, is in the city. Mr. Kelly's presence here foreshadows the establish- i
ment Iu Victoria of a large branch of
the immense business he has built up
on the coast. To a Times renresen-
tative Mr. Kelly said he intended to
erect a substantial building here as
sooii as he could make the necessai y
arrangements.
The linn of Kelly, Dougles & Co., already has branches In New Westminster and Prinoe Rupert, and for a long
time has maintained an agent in Victoria. Mr. Kelly ts known all ove1'
Canada for his commercial farsluhtod-

to enter the Vancouver Island field by-
means of a big branch establishment

he anticipateH rapid development and

will be propounded fram the lecture
platform in SeaWle, together with
/ other subjects to be announced later.
Major Coiterill says he can sec no
leaeon to piohlblt them.
"I fail to see why she would be prohibited from lecturing bere," iMa-cr
Cotterill said. "She will hire her own
hall and should be permitted'to speak
the time a�� any other person. We
shall .'eii ihe same with her as with
any ether person. She is. entitled to
siml'ar treatment. However, tbis Is
not official, as I have not yet officially learned of her coming."
The fact that her propaganda, as
tet fonh in the lllterature circulated
advertising her coming here, defines
unai chism as "the philosophy of a
new social order baee:l on liberty unrestricted by man-made law; the
theory that all forms of government
are based on violence���hence wrong
and harmful, as well as unnecessary."
Toes not In his opinion, warrant the
chief executive of this city In refus-
ihg to permit their advocation an.l
propagation in tli4 midst of a city of
home-loving and law-abllditig people.

Makes Hair Grow
Ryall has an Invlgorator that will
grow hair or money back.
The time to take care of your hair
is when you have hair to take care of,
If your hair is getting thin, gradually falling out lt cannot be long before the spot appears.
The greatest remedy to stop the
hair from falling ls HALVIA, the
Great American Hair Grower, flrat
discovered in England. SALVIA furnishes nourishment to the hair roots
and acte so quickly that people are
amazed.
And remember. It destroys the
Dandruff germ, the little pest tbat
slips tho life tbat should go to the
hair from the roots,
SALVIA Is sold by Ryall under a
positive guarantee to cure Dandruff,
atop Falling Hair and Itching Scalp
in ten days, or money back. A large
bottle costs BOc. The word "SALVIA"
/Latin for sage) is on every bottle.

Vork. N'o slightest detail escaped her
no.ic" that could help to realize the
ideal held by tlie generous founder
and the faculty.
Miss Laird's days Arc full ones, full
as few people's are.
What do you think of a person who.
between beginning work at the usual
time in tbe morning and ten o'clock
nt night, has not a moment to spare
for any* interest outside? And this is
what frequently  happens.
Such unusual hours are owing lo
the peculiar fact that the class tauirht
by a student in household science for
practice may be one of boys at the
Broadview Y.M.C.A., or for girls or
married women at a settlement house
in The Ward, or of young ladies ut
thn  Y.W.C.A.
It is more than likely to meet in
the evening, so the teach'.* oi the student-teacher must needs be present to
"observe."
lt seems a long day, but when some
asked Miss Laird if she did net get
"sick and tired" of it, tl-ere was no
acquiescence.
"It is such fascinating work. I never tire of it.   It is always so full of ]
interest."
Of course, if that is a worker's attitude to what engrosses all her time
and attention, that work is sure to be
a success.
No one could be more calm and tin-
flurried than this busy woman, more
modest about what she has accom-

WHEAT ELEVATORS.
Mayor I.es tells us that wheat elevators willlie built on the Fraser river, and at Westminster, if the harbor
is made suitable. That information
he has from "thc very best authority,"
and as the mayor has only shortly returned from Ottawa, this is a very
satisfactory*, .statement  to  receive.
That, then, is where the matter
rests uow, with the people of New
Westminster. Not. that we mean to
say that those In touch with Ottawa
can rest from their labors, but it is Up
to the people to carry the harbor improvement b.-la.v and to support further harhor developments with all
their st length. That, harbor bylaw
will hc submitted probably within a
month. This it will be carried,
there can bo no doubt. On its endorsement by the people depends the
future of this greal potential port of
New Westminster and the Fraser riv-
���er. Until tt is cai lied the city will
have to bq con iei t with being a second rate harbor and a mere local centre for the distributing cf wholesale
goods, t l.e marketing of local produce ;i;id the nu!ii:il'a.vt.:ie of such
articles as do mt demand good ocean
aci onimodation.
The   peogle   ot   New   Westminster,
however,  do  no!   mean  to rest  content  with this.    They ate out for big
things   and   now   that     they   realize
that ;hey l^ve here the makings of
the  greatest 'fresh  water  harbor    cn
the  Pacific  Coast, they  mean  to  Tall
in  no  way  short  of  thai   possibility.
They   want   that   harbor    and     they
mean   to get  it.      They  want    those

FORESTRY EXPERT TALKS
ABOUT FIRE PATROL
Victoria, May ,10.-���"British Columbia is more Immediately concerned
with forestry protection than any other provinces of the Dominion for the
simple and obvious reason that she
has more timber than any of-the others; and accordingly I am glad to
learn that the government has s^en fit
to inaugurate a forestry department
to look after its interests in that respect."
So said Mr. Clyde Leavitt, ohief fire
inspector for the Railway Commission
and forester for the Commission of
Conservation, who arrived in the city
yesterday to confer with the B. C.
government in regard to the necessity of additional fire patrols throughout, the province along   railway lines.
Mr. Leavitt is an American forester
wdio was drafted into the service of
Canada at the beginning of this year.
His presence here in the i-rovinoe
synchronises with the inauguration of
tiie forestry branch, aud while he has
no special connection wdth it he will
mec' with tbe memhers of the new
staff and tconsider v.i'h tbem the
provincial situatioon in regard to
adequate fue patrol.

Victoria, May JO.���Early action will

alterations to the public, ma. ket building on Cormorant street, to proviso
more adequate quarters for the lolice
department. The ratepayers lasl year
vote.! $30,000 for this purpose, but the
then mayor vetoed the lesoljtions
calling ter the expenditure of the
amounl voted. The police commissioners recently reiuested the city
council to proceed wi'h the work, and
their request was approved of at last
night's meeting of the council.
Alderman Gleason, wdio last year
opposed the expenditure, was in fvor
of proceeding wdth the wo:k. but lie
said be had been informed it would
cost fiom S40.0U0 to $45,000, and there
would he the loss on the sale of the

looking  the   Ottawa  River,   and  con- !
tinues  right  up  to  the very  door  of
Canada's   Royal  Governor-General  in

down  the  Ottawa  River  to   the  rifle j
ranees,   where   the   annual   D. R. A. '
matches are held.
The driveway itself is a splendidly !

For many years before 1JK1D, a very
Inrite numlx'r of Bulgarians. Macedonians ar.d Greeks left their own
countries to settle in the United
States, but from the beginning ol thi��
century there has been considerable
preference shown by these sub-Balkan- people for Canada, ln the yesr
19IX), the immigration department (ig-
uros showed a ouite small number of
these, but thi; has annually increased-until in l'Jl 1-12. 4,!?4 Bulgarians
and Macedonians hi one had arrived
here, and about one-third ol that numj
b-��r of Greeks. Mittiy Servians nre
with thi* immigrating company also.
The majority of them find their start-
ivi spot at Belgrade, in 8orvia, and
thence they travel to Bud i-Pesth.
From liudu P.'sth they 'proceed to
Havre, ard travel via' London of
Liverpool to Quebec, eome on, the
large majority, to settle in Toronto'.

the city. There are not a few of the
small capitalists among them who
open up as grocers, butchers, tailor*
or shoemakers, and some go further
west and b"corne prosperous farmers;
Many ol them become nationalized,
mnrry ami add to the mixture of Can-
ad ���.'* nopulation. Very few of them
go back to Europe.
These facts are gathered from a new
newspaper, The Balkan Star, the first
number of which was published,
printed in the native character, on
the Gth of April. It is a well-got-up
sheet of four pages, and is evidence,
by its existence of the fact that these
people, native of the Balkan states,
have already become n considerable
item in Canada's national life.

LAUGHED AND LOST.
Smiles That Came at the Wrong Tims
and Proved Costly.
One must be most careful how he
laughs or even smiles in the presence of the great ones of the earth,
as is evidenced in the following instances :
Milbanke, a clever but blunt Scot.
who was an expert in colonial administration, was once summoned by
William of Germany in order that his
valuable advice touching eastern affairs might be obtained for German
guidance^ The Kaiser had about decided to intrust Milbanke with a most
important office in China with considerable supervision over German interests there.
It appears that during one of their
conferences the Kaiser offered some
absurd suggestion as to oriental diplomacy, whereat the Scot laughed.
Immediately the Emperor wished him
good-day and never saw him again.
It was another Scot, Duncan McVea.
who advised the amiable but sensitive King Carlos of Portugal in the
Government of the Cape Verde islands, at the time in a very shaky
condition. It was practically decided
to give McVea entire control over the
islands at the handsome salary of
$25,000 a year. During one of their
consultations his Majesty became
greatly excited and made a mess of
his English, which was usually excellent. McVea could not heln smiling audibly, with the result tnat he
was summarily dismissed and never
permitted to come to court again.
It is related that once, when he
was very weary after a long journey
and consequently in no mood to be
trifled with, the Czar of Russia, in
passing through an apartment in tha
palacj at St. Petersburg, slipped on
a mat thnt lay on the polished floor
and nearly tell. Clutching wildly al
one af his attendants, the Emperor
of all the Russian went through a
series of gyrations extremely ludicrous to behold that nearly brought
himself and his subject to the floor.
KnidoJPf, at the time a prominent and
confidential adviser to the throne*
could not check a smile, a smile that
the Czar turned just in time to catch.'
The very next day Baron Enidoff lost
his post, carrying a salary of $60,000)
annually. 4

Van Tromp's Way of Fighting.
The Dutch Admiral Van Tromp,'
who was a large, heavy man, wa^'
o.noe challenged by a thin, active
French officer. "We are not upon
equal terms with rapiers," said Van
Tromp, "but call upon me to-morrow
morning, and we will adjust the affair." When ths Frenchman called
he found the Dutch admiral bestriding a barrel of gunpowder. "There
is room enough for you," said Van
Tromp, "at the other end of the barrel. Sit down. There is the match,
and as you are the challenger give
flre." The Frenchman waa thunderstruck st this terrible mode of fighting, but as the Dutch admiral told
him he would fight no other way
terms ol leconciliation ensued.
,   One Man Colliery.
There is at least t��ne coal mine in '
Britain that was not attected by the
strike.   It is in tliat outrqf-the-wqrld;;
spot known as Rainow, near Maccles-J
field.   This colliery is a curiosity, being leased by one man, who perforins;
all the duties necessary between gety
ting the coal and the actual burning,!
of it.   He .himself gets the coal, de-'
scending into the mine down a sloping j
shaft, at the head of which there is'
a water-wheel, by which the coal isi
drawn to the surface.   The same man
loads the coal on to his own  lorry,:
hitches it to his own horse, and proceeds   to  call   "Coal!"   through   the
neighboring district.

now in full swing and the cannery
will be ready for the fruit crop.
The proposal decided on is to form
an entirely new company coveiing the
two towns, when the existing company will be bought out at a price already arranged. Later, .efforts will
be made to induce other lake towns
to join in forming one large canning
company to handle trade of the whole

For generations Sage and Sulphur
have been used for hair and scalp
troubles. Almost everyone knows the
value of such a combination for keeping
the hair a good even color, for curing
dandruff, itching scalp and falling hair,
and for promoting the growth of the
hair. Years ago the only way to get
a Hajr Tonic of this kind was to make
it in the home, which was troublesome
and not always satisfactory. Nowadays, almost any up-to-date druggist
can supply his patrons with a ready-to-
use product, skillfully prepared in perfectly equipped laboratories.
An ideal preparation of this sort
is Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy, in which Sage and Sulphur
are combined with other valuable remedies for scalp trouble? and thin, weak
hair that is losing its color or coming
out. After using this remedy for.a
few days, you will notice the color
gradually coming back, your scalp will
feel better, tho dandruff will soon be
gone, and in less than a month's time
there will be a wonderful difference in
your hair. 9
Don't neglect vour hair if it is full
of dandruff, losing its color or coming out Get a fifty cent bottle of
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur from your
druggist, nnd see what a few days'
treatment will do for you. All druggists sell it, under guarantee that
the money will be refunded if the
remedy is not exactly as represented.

Scientific   Explanation   of  a   Familiar
Phenomenon.
Every boy or man who has run a
rhile knows what it is to gain a "#e*
eond wind," though he mny not he
able to explain why one minute he
is out of breath and the next feels
as if he could run several miles.
This curious circumstance may be
explained us follows:
Must persons may not be aware
that in ordinary breathing we use
only n portion of our lungs, the cells
at the extremity not being brought
into plaj;. j
This  ii  the  reason why  those  who i
are  not in training  and  wlio try  to
run   for  any   distance   soon   begin   to i
gasp and  unless they are courageous
enough   to  persevere  in  spite  of  the
choking sensation  are forced to stop. I
But if they  will  persevere  the chok- |
ing goes  off,  and  the  result js  what j
is  known  as   "second  wind."    When
the  second  wind  is  fully established
the  runner does  not  become  out  of
breath, but lines on running as long
as his legs will carry liim.   The tnct
ia  that on  starting  the  farthest  por- ���
tions  of the   lungs   are  choked   with
air, and the remainder do not supply I
sir enough to meet the increased eir- ,
culation caused  by exercise.
By degrees, however, ths neglected
cells come into ��� play, and when
tbe entire lung is in working order
thc circulation and respiration again
balance each ether, and the "second
wind"  is the result.
Let*, one repeat the experiment of
holding his breath against tii.io, but
flrat let hlm force out of bin lungs
every particle of hir .hat he can expel and then draw as deep a breath
as his lungs will hold. ' If this lie
repented s.veiity or eighty timus by
way of imitation of the whale ths.
experimenter will find that he can
hoi 1 bis breath for a minute and a
half without inconvenience. |
Should he be a swimmer he should j
always take, tbis precaution before ;
"taking a header." and he will find '
that he Can swim for a considerable !
distance before he needs to rise for
brealbf. -. I

A Honey-SuckIn" Mjuse
One of the greatest curiosities of
Australian animal life is the nool-.
benger, a tiny member of the opossum
family, which is the only beast specially adapted for living on honey. In
sire und general form this little creature resembles a common mouse, but
has a longer muzzle, weak, degenerate
teeth. and nails instead of claws, its
t 'iigue is slender, and so long that it
can be protruded an inrh from the
month to lick the honey from the
fl"wers. while the tail is prehensile

A   \V--ri?rful   River   Thnt   Links   tn��
Orient   rnj   ths   Occident.
Where   i-   there   another   river   sn
iiiterirtional ;^ ;'ie Danube?   It risei
in    lia.len   (>ud   Hows   tlirouirll   Wurt-
tember' and  ll-ivaria;  nearly half ill
length  lies in Au-tria-Hungary; then
it   separates   the   hitter   Country   and
Servia.  Atj Orsova three  nationalities
meet���Hungarians. Servians and Ron-
man tans.    After that  it  serves  as  a
boundary between linurnnni.i and Bulgaria, and its mouth lies in Roumanian', "territory.    As   one   passes   from
source to mouth otrnmre jsomb's greet j
the ��nr.   First, high German dialects,
as  Alemanic. Suabian and  Bavarian;
then  the  language of the proud sons
of Arpsd, the Magyars; then the Servian   nnd   Roumanian  ani   Bulgarian
tongurs.     The   management   of   '.he
river   improvement   shows   the   number nnd  variety of the interests.    An
international    commission    undertook
the   deepening   of   one   of   the   delta
channels; and a joint commission of
the riparian stntes removed the dangers of the rapids. i
The scenery along the Danube is as '
varied   as   the   people   that  dwell   on
its banks.   There are stretches whose,
beauty  rivals tliat of tbe picturesque j
parts of tlie castled Rhine; then comes
tbe monotony of the wide plain; then
it  breaks  once  more  through  mountain  chains  and  again   tlie  scene  is'
wild and  benutifu1.                                   i
There is more hf the beantlful blue
Danube connected with  Austria-Hun-!

this  river  and  It's tributaries cement ;
the  heterogeneous parts of that com- I
posits   country   more   naturally   and j
more  firmly  than   laws   nnd  treaties

tlie  Danube  than  in  and  out of the
Austrian   Adriatic   ports,   so   that in !
spite of tbe possession of a strip of
coast tlie monarchy may be called an j
inland  state.    Unfortunately  for this
Government, the all important Dan-1
ube  slips  from  it by  flowing  far  be- I
yond the  borders of the land, yet it
has even in politics a directing influ- ;
ence.   The eyes of Austrian statesmen \
are   turned   eastward.     Economically |
and politically the Danube is of such
dominating   significance    to   Austria- i
Hungary  tliat  it lias  been  suggested ;
that this conglomerate state be called |
r.ot the dual monarchy, but the Dan- '
ubian monarchy.
The Danube was the scene of Roman colonization, ol the fierce inroads of the migration of the Huns,
the Avars and the Magyars; of the advance oi the crusaders to the east, of
that of the Turks toward the west
and more recently of the growth of
tha house of Hapsburg and of the
disintegration of the Ottoman realm.

Not   In  Love  With the  Country.
At the beginning of last year the
lats Mr. Digby Pigott, one of tlie Assistant Commissioners of British Kast
Africa, while camping on the eastern
shore of the Victoria Nyanza, discovered some fossil remains. One of
the relics was brought to Kngland by
Mr. C. W. Hobley hist June, and this
on examination was found to be the
jawbone of a Dinotherium, one of the
mammals which flourished in the
Lower Miocene fit Middle Tertiary
period, a period of time which is sometimes defined by geologists as being
Somewhere about three million years ,
ago.
The discovery excited considerable
interest iu biological and geological
circles, and the British Museum authorities, with whom the fossil was
deposited, expressed the opinion that
further Investigations were desirable.
Accordingly, Dr. Felix Oswald, the
Probate Registrar of Nottingham, who
will lie remembered as the author of a
b.,ok on the geology of Armenia, volunteered to undertake the work during his "leave" from professional duties. Dr. Oswald's offer was accepted,
mid last November he started for the
sp-it on Victoria Nyanza where the
discovery bad been made.
It may be recalled here that Mr.
Pigott met his death while shooting
hippopotami on the lake. A wounded
hippo fi'mrged the raft on which lie
w * standing, upsetting its occupants
into the water, where they were at
once devoured  by crocodiles.
At Port Florence Dr. Oswald was
provided with a schooner by Sir P.^rey
Girouard, the Governor of British
Kast Africa, in wllich to make the
journey to Karungu, tbe station on
the lake where the remains were
found. The place was reached on No-
vembex 15 of last year. It consists of
a mere huddle ol native dwellings,
with not a single white man nearer
tl an Kisli, some five days' journey
north.
Dr. Oswald was accompanied only
by three natives, one nn interpreter
speaking the lanuuage of the Kaviron-
flu. the people of tne district, and two
native soldiers. Incidentally Ise had
learned oo his journey that all tiie
published mars of the n rtheastern
purtiqn .of the Victoria Nyanza were
Inaccurate, and it is bis intention to
prepare a corrected map so soon as
lie  can  find  time.
Once on shore l.e started work on
his wearying uud lonesome task. The
time of the year was summer, and
tha heat was terrific, for tlie season
was the hottest yet known in tliat
quarter of the world. To a press
representative be has described tiie
labors and tbe difficulties attending
his sbjpurn in these solitudes just
South  of  the   Koiiator.
"Tiie exact point," said Dr. Oswald,
"where we started our investigations
was close to Karungu, in what is apparently the delta of an old river
which formerly ran into the lake at
that point. The heat was terrific,
and the glare of the sun was blinding,
and, unfortunately for me. I had fot-
cotten to pack smoked glasses. Wo
had considerable good fortune in ' ur
searches, and owing to the fact that
the crournl on which we labored
chiefly was. as I have said, an old
delta, we found the layers very well
defined indeed.
"At the top of all was a cliff of
basalt, and below that was the sloping bed f the delta. The top of this
bed was the ordinary black cotton
soil of the district, and immediately
below we found the ordinary lacus-
truin beds, the top one of grey eNv,
the second one of rod clay and wliile
sandstone, and the third one of buff
sandstone   and   gravel.
"In each bed wo found shells in
plenty ��� all fresh-water shells ��� but
there were very few fossils of any
other character in the top bed, though
we found a fair number in the second, lt was In the thir.l bed���the
lied of the Lower Miocene period���
however, that we hnd our best finds,
finding another Dinotherium, with
teeth, and also some bones of Acera-
therium and Anthracotheriuin, the ancient type of rhinoceros. These wera
all found close to tbe mouth of the
Kuji or Kuya Kiver, but we found
other traces of fossils at points tive
ami fifteen miles distant, In what
appeared to be tbe same gully.
"My great trouble was the insert
life, which abounded to a degree
which I hnd never experienced before,
and did not believe existed. Every
