A hundred thousand dollar deal,
that bears eloquent testimony to the
faith of the principals to the transaction In the assured future of the city
of Westminster over a period of flfteen years, has Just been closed. The
old Canadian Bank of Commerce
building commonly known as the Elllj
building has been let. for fifteen yearB
for a consideration well exceeding
$100,000.
The parties to the transaction are
the owner, Colton Fox, of England,
and the British North American
Securities corporation, Ltd., the deal
being put through by VV. F. Edmonds,
who acted for the company, and
Peter Peebles, who represented the
owner. The building, as ls well known,
stands on the corner of Sixth and Columbia streets, and the deal forms a
fair complement to the sale of the
opposite corner by Mr. Cliff the other
day for $175,000. Dy taking a fifteen
year lease the corporation provea
that it Is convinced that Westminster
will have no set-back during that
period, but rather a certain growth,
that will make this bargain as profitable to themselves as lt must be to
the English owner. The company will
probably Improve the building at an
I early date, and put In all modern ap-
j pllances.   They may also very slurt.y

| New York, Feb. 25.���Colonel Theodore Roosevelt has been written to by
Seven Republican governors of states,
Who asked him to stand for nomination for the presidency. Colonel
Roosevelt's reply ls as follows:

your letter and I realize to the full the
heavy responsibility it puts upon me,
expressing as it does the carefully
considered convictions of the men
elected by popular vote to stand ac;

"1 absolutely agree with you that
this matter ls not one to be decided
with any reference to personal preferences or interests of any man, but
purely from the standpoint of the interests of the people as a whole. I
will accept the nomination for president, lf it is tendered to me, and I
will adhere to this decision until the
convention ha3 expressed Its preference.
' "One of the chief principles for
which I have stood and for which I
now stand and which I have always
endeavored and always shall endeavor
to reduce to action,   is   the   genuine

about 8:30 'his morning .while working alone ln the transformer room of
the electric plant at the Arena.

George Kennedy was the spokesman
for the Sapperton nfititloners against
the sue of tho Sapperton playground
on Columbia street. lie, spoke of the
petition that was being circulated lu
favor of this proposal, which had not
yet been presented to the council, and
said he thought that those who were
signing this must be either "people
who had not considered the matter,
or those without children and never
hoped to have any." For many years
the boys had used this playground,
and Sapperton had trained some ot
the very best lacrosse players of New
Westminster there. Little tot* anrf
larger children could both use such a
centrally situated ground, and he
thought that it would be "an act ot
cruelty to take It away from them "
Alderman White, chairman of the
parks committee, stated that the council only wished to please the people
of Sapperton. Certain residents of
that part of tbe city had spoken to
hlm of selling off the front part of
the playground on Columbia street,

A harmless remedy, made from common gai den sage, quickly restores gray
hair to natural color. The caro ofthe
hair, to prevent it from losing its color
and lustre, is just as important as to
care for teeth to keep them from discoloring. Why spend money for cosmetics and creams to improve the complexion, and yet neglect your hair, when
gray hair is even more conspicuous and
suggestive of age than wrinkles or a
poor complexion? Of the two, it is
easier to preserve the natural color and
beauty of the hair than it is to have
a good complexion.
All that is necessary is the occasional
use of Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair
Remedy, a preparation of common garden Sage and Sulphur, combined with
other valuable remedies for dry, harsh,
faded hair, dandruff, itching scalp anc
falling hair. After a few applications
of this! simple, harmless remedy, your
hair will gradually be restored to its
natural color, in a short time tho dandruff /will be removed, and your hair
will no longer come out but will start to
grow as Nature intended it should.
Don't neglect your hair, for it goes
further than anything else to make or
mar your good looks. You can buy
thi9 remedy at any drug store for
fifty cents a bottle, and your druggist will give your money back if you
aro not satisfied after using;. Purchase a bottle today. You will never
regret it when you realize the difference it will make in your appearance.

VISCOUNT   HALDANE   AT   BERLIN
New York Sun Presents United States
View  of Trip.
As the despatches from Berlin and
London alike show clearly, there is a
great deal of Ingenious and interesting guessing going on both In Germany and Great Britain as to the purpose and the consequences of the
meeting between Emperor William
and the British secretary for war, Viscount Haldane.
The least considerable topic of discussion that has been suggested Ie
that of Walflsch "nay. A glance at the
JUiap of Africa will disclose the value
of this British possession. lt ls, in
fact, the best and the natural sea gate
of Germany's colony of Southwest Africa, the only good harbor on this
whole coast. By retaining possession
of this tiny enclave In German territory, as well as a laTge number ot
smiii! Islands along the coast, the British are able to prevent the development of this colony.
lt has, therefore, been surmised that
Viscount Huldane's vi3it may lea.I to
a mutual exchange of territories which
will put Germany in full possession of
her own colony. The sole objection to
such a cession on the part of the British comes from the South African
Union, which has given some evidence of hostility to any concession
which shall assist in tho development
of an adjacent territory held by a foreign nation.
A second and more considerable
question which the kaiser and the
British War Secretary may discuss ls
tkat of the partition between England
and Germany of Portuguese colonies
in South Africa. This subject was
the basis of an Anglo-German treaty
in 1898, which ln general terms pio-
vided for the purchase trom Portugal
by Great Britain of that portion of
Portuguese kaat Attica south of the
Zambesi river and including Delagoa
Bay and Belra, and by Germany or tho
balance ot this colony and a large
p��rt of Angola on the West Coast.
Tnis would open the way for a German colony ln Equatorial Africa
stretching from the Atlantic to the
Indian Ocean.
There remains the familiar project
for a mutual agreement between England and Germany on the subject of
the limitation of armaments. 1 his is
a policy dear to the hearts of the radical members of the piesent British
Ministry. But lt haB found little sup-
poit tn Germany, and a previous attempt to promote a discussion of tho
question of the reduction of naval expenditures made by the British wa3
somewhat brusquely repulsed by the
GeraanK. ln view of the kaiser's latest speech at the opening or the
Reichstag, in which he foreshadowed
an increase in military and naval expenditures, a discussion of thi3 matter
seems wholly unlikely.
Finally, there exists a remote possibility that the recent espionage case,
which has roused British protests,
may be considered. It bas even neon
hinted in depatches that Viscount Haldane may ask for a pardo n for the
Englishman just condemned by the
German courts. But tills again seems
wholly unlikely. Such a request
would hardly be made by a British
Minister, and a formal suggestion ot
this sort would hardly lead the kaiser
to take a step which might seem to
reflect upon his judicial officers. Pardons ln such cases are invariably acts
or unsolicited grace performed voluntarily.
The reasonable Interpretation of the
present meeting is that wbich relates
it to tho territorial changes ln South
Africa which all British journals ot
influence have been discussing tor several weeks. The convlctlofl that
Germany and Great Britain are about
to divide the Portuguese empire In
South Africa, after having purchased
Portuguese assent, ls reflected ln all
recent British newspapers and magazines. The possibility that such a
partition may bring about better Anglo-German relations ts equally apparent and would justify any reasonable bargain ln British eyes.

THE DAILY  NEWS.
BIG NIGHT AT THE
ARMOURY WEDNE8DAY
All athletic enthusiasts will be at
the armoury on Wednesday night,
when tho 104th regiment Is staging
eome boxing and wrestling matches o(
exceptional quality and interest. Ernie
Barileu and Fred Smith, respectively
lightweight champions ui boxing nnd
wrestling ln the Pacific northwest
and on the coast, will appear ugalnst
the pick of the local talent. Frank
Homo, who will meet tho Vancouver
boxer, Is vtery much fancied over here,
mid will make ''birnie" go the whole
distance, while Jack Tait, fresh from
his victory In Victorlu over A. Mc-
Curkey, of Seattle, will be a hard uut
for Fred Smith to truck. Theso two
should certainly be great bouts, but
they wlll by no means be the only
Items of Interest on the program. The
flght between C. McLean, of the V. A.
C, and Pte. Fitzgerald, of tho 104th,
should also be a very fast one tn the
110 pound class, aud all the other
boxers are men who know the game
well and will put up a good flght
against the best class of opponents.
Interest is added to the meeting by
its lnter-clty character, the V. A. C.
and the 104th regiment being opposed
in practically every bout.
, The following is tho program as arranged to date:
Boxing���
135 lb. Class���Ernie Barricu, V. A.
C, V8. Pte. Frank Home, 104th regiment.
126 lb. Class���C. Patten, V. A. C, vs.

Fred Smith, V. A. C, vs. Jack Tait,
104th regiment.
Snowball O'Connor, 104th regiment,
vs. Hatch. Jr., young brother of the
welterweight champion of the coast.
The tournament will start at 8 p.m.
..at the armoury.
Billiard league games are going on
steadily at tbe old Fletcher pool room
and tonight Accountants meet the
Asylum.
A prize offered for the highest billiard break during February looks as
if it is a sure thing for Coldicott, who
ls leading at present with a break of
82. ThiB will be hard to beat, but all
���ihe cueists are doing their best to
try and get ahead of this big break
ibefore the l!9th ls past. Two prizes
will be given for the same thing next
.month. ...    ,.
Another neat little priV.e that is well
worth winning is a particularly tasteful mother-of-pearl wrist watch that
the new management ls ottering for
the highest run ln pool during the
next month. When this prize ls seen
it wlll put every one on his mottle to
do some big scoring, and some first
class play should result.

to the glistening surface of tho metal.
Stamping with the foot increases the
agitation.
The microphone, a small Instrument, rests on a metal disk, several
inches in diameter, which weighs 20
pounds. It ls suspended from a crossbeam bythree equidistant wires. The
wires, ot equal length, are attached
to three spiral springs, called a Julius
suspension, which, in turn, are attached to the sides of the disk, therefore,
Ilea the horizontal plane, and ita
springs and wires take up and eliminate all vibration. This is easily
proved. The vessel of mercury is laid
upon the disk and a careful inspection on Its surface shows- that Its
tremulous motion has ceased. Vibration, then, has been eliminated
from the experiment, because stamping on the floor or other means ot
Jarring the room and Its contents fail
to reagltate the mercury.
The microphone is conected by a
wire with a small induction coll, such
as lt used in the telephone, and from
tho coll another wire���copper, coated
with lead���passes to the galvanometer, the chief electrical instrument
used in the work. Within the galvanometer an arc light is generated in
the ordinary way by carbon rods.
In front of the arc light there Is a
powerful electro-magnet, and a small
opening calle! an air gap. Stretched
vertically in front of the air-sap is a
fiber of quartz, silver-plated���the same
"invisible" rod described previously
as being of microscopic caliber, but
capable of being seen shimmering la
the air. The apparatus���galvanometer, quartz fibre, and all���Is known
as the "string galvanometer."
Picturing the Shadow of Sound.
The quartz fibre is magnified by a
microscope, and several ieet in tront
of the whole apparatus a white screen
is placed. A circle in diameter Is
thrown on the screen, and the shadow
of the quartz fibre, whku appears as
a thick cord, Ib seen vertically bisecting the circle. Everytning is now
staged for thq experiment. The shadow of the cord appearing motionless
and ready to show the agitation ie-
sultlng from the sounds, and not the
vibration, of the heart.
A tube resembling a piece ot wov-
hose ot small calibre Is attached to
j concealed coast defenses and hidden
, engines of destruction that would unexpectedly decide the fate of nations
In time of war. It Is to capture these
secrets that England and Germany
and France and Russia are supposed
to keep their neighbors' territory
flooded with spies.
Every fashionable resort, every
watering place, ls thronged with them,
and the daily malls are clogged with
letters and photogarphs and drawings
the spies have procured, bought or
borrowed. It ls a fiction that a credulous world Insists upon believing and
that hysterical patriots take delight In
circulating.���Now York World.

Work of New York Doctor Nothing to
Do With Tender Passion.
New York. Feb. 26���Dr. H. B. Wil-
UamB, associate in physiology in the
College of Physicians and Surgeons,
the medical school of Columbia university, is engaged in tbe unusual task
of photographing sound. The humanitarian purpose ot this work and .Its
place in the medical Institution will
lie understood better when it is explained that the sounds recorded on
the photographic film are those emanating from the heart. This means
that a valuable adjunct to diagnosis in
affections of tbe heart Is ln practical operation.
Not only that, but It Is not necessary to have the patient in the physiological laboratory while this method
of diagnosis is being employed ; liu
can be examined with the sanje accuracy in this respect while lying on a
cot in a hospital at a distance or while
standing in the dispensary devoted to
the use of outdoor patients of the institution. As a matter of fact, it is
the purpose of the authorities of the
college and of the Vanderbilt clinic
to connect the laboratory and the
clinic by means of electric wires Just
as the office telephone la "hooked up"
with "central." This connection wlll
be established in a few weeks.
Bewildering Array of Apparatus.
This announcement of the practical
photographing of heart sounds Is not
to bo confused with the production of
electrocardiogram s. Electrocardio
grams are the photographic reproductions of the e'-ectric currents ot the
heart, produced by the electrocardiograph. The same machine, however,
the galvanometer, is used to record
photographically' both the currents
and sounds of the heart.
A distinguished British surgeon declared a short time ago that the gres.t- _

An English Chemist Has
Discovered How to
Grow Hair
In England the ladles have entirely
abandoned wearing rats, which is
due entirely to this new discovery.
It has been proven that Henna
leaves contain the ingredients that
will positively grow hair. That they
contain this long-looked-for article is
proven every day.
The Americans are now placing on
the market a preparation containing
the extract from Henna leaves, which
Is having a phenomenal sale.
This preparatlcn is called SALVIA,
and is being sold wjt^|nj guarantee

with equal truth. In view of the ease
with which both the movements and
sounds of the cardiac muscle can now
be recorded that the greatest recent
advance ln diagnosis has to do with
the heart and its diseases.
Bewildering Array of Talent.
The student, whether undergraduate
or post-graduate, finds himself confronted by a bewildering array of apparatus when he goes to find out lu
the "P. and 8." physiological laboratory just wbat is meant when one
talks ahout photographing the sounds
of the heart. Presently he discovers
himself tangled up ln matters as alluring as any < romantic theory evolved
by the medieval alchemist!
On the one hand he ls permitted to
gaze upon a powerful-looking crossbow which smacks of the warfare of
the middle ages; then a rod is shown
to him which, by all the rules of the
microscope, he should not be able to
see at all because lt Is only one-half

in;; under the powerful electric light.
The attention of the viBltor ls also directed to a heavy iron disk suspended
by bv rings and wires, which, he is informed, is a microphone���the same
sort of a thing used in a telephone,
but which bears no outward, resemblance   to   that   instrument
to the induction coll, from the coll
to the galvanometer, and there they
set up a tremor In the quartz fibre.
The tremor, which is really only one-
five-hundredth of an Inch in ex\ent, is
magnified 500 times by the microscope, and appeara ln the shadow of
the fibre on the screen as a violent
agitation plainly perceptible and quite
an inch from side to side. This, then,
is the shadow of the sounds of the j
heart.
"But where doea the photographing
come ln?" tbe visitor natuarally inquires. He is shown a square black
box back of the screen, and ln the
front of it a narrow horizontal slit
just back of the shadow of tbe quarts
flber. The box is a camera, Inside is
a revolving drum, and on the drum
is stretched a photographic film. The
oscillations of the fibre are photographed on the film, and when developed accurate tracings of the heart
sounds give different tracings from
those ln disease. And the different
sounds, and hence different tracings.
When electrograms and tracings of
the sounds from the same diseased
heart are placed in parallel lines on
the same strip of paper, the twentieth
century diagnostician has accurate
data upon which to base nig' diagnosis.

A Bit 0^ Rlitbfy.
More than half a century ago the
old timers say that part of the country which is now known as the cluy
belt ol Ontario was bald as the prairies. This was due, they tell us, to
the country liaving been repeatedly
swept by, fierce forest fires. It wa*
not long after, however, before another growth had sprung, up, and the
country was again completely covered with second prowth tamarack,
spruce, hpmlock, birch, and poplar.
So close together grew these young
trees that thero was no room for them
to grow other than skyward. Up, up
they shot in a mad race to keep in
the sunlight. Taller and taller they
grew, devoting fll their strength to
! upward growth, und having but little
to spart' to add to their circumfer-
j anee. It was a case of the survival of
1 the fittest, and millions upon mil-
1 lions of these saplings must have per.
' Ished through being outstripped in
I the race and deprived of the heavenly
light. The result is to-day a forest ol
1 poW, h thick Jungle growth, almost
limbless, and bearing foliage only on
ith'ir topmost  brandies.
There is nothing appalling in the
1 task this tall jungle growth presents
to the axeman. In addition to the
smaHness of these tree trunks, the
wood is, in most cases, soft (pulpwood), nnd easily cut into. The chief
advantage otl this peculiar growth,
however, lies in tlie tart that although
th" tr"es are ol Sbnsldfet&ble heiaht,
tlieir roots searre penetrate the clay
b low tlie moss. Consequently it is
no ��Teat task to rid the land of the
I roots after the chopping has been
done.
Sydney In Earnest.
Sixty ol tlie leading citizens of Sydney, N.S., sat down at the festival
board in Sydney th" other night.
The occasion was u striking one.
' Tlie city was entertaining the dircc-
i tors oi two of the largest Industrie"
I in Cape Breton. The chief business
1 men ol Sydney, over cigars, had the
I privilege oi talking heart to heart

j Frecf iClcriolIs, and Senator MacKeen
1 discussed problems which are immin-
', ent in Sydney juSt now.
I Mr.. Plummer aroused great enthus-
| iasm when he declared that there was
I no better place on the coast for a
I shipbuilding plant than New Sydney.
A Tale of the Sea.
There is a sea captain in Halifax.
��� and   the fish plead  to eat right  out
I of his hand.
i    He is the gallant Captain Chambers
1 of the Furness liner Durango.
Captain  Chambers   lias  just   sailed
I his ship over the seas from London.
As a result of this trip, he is not
j so sure that appealing to fish is quite
\ the best sailing quality a sea captain
I may have.
The Durango had a peculiar experience on the way over. Out in mid-
ocean the liner came to a dead utop.
j   On investigation it was found that
[the circulation pumps weren't working, and would not work until the intake pipe was relieved ol the school
of swarming fish which were trying
to board the boat by this route.
