That Westminster received full recognition, in keeping with her position
as the first Pacific port to take actuai
steps of preparation ln anticipation ol
the added commerce attendant upon
the opening ot tne Panama canal, at
the recent Panama convention at Calgary, is the statement of Mr. Kenneth
Myeis, secretary of the Progresshe
association, who with Mayor Lee represented this city at the convention.
Mr. Myers returfted to the city yesterday morning, laden with ample evidences of the result of his mission in
the shape of various issues of the two
leading newspapers in Calgaiy which
contained very flattering references
of New Westminster, an J interviews
with Mayor Lee an.i himself regarding the future and prospects of the
city. In one of these ai tides fhe
News-Telegram" of Calgary, devoted
practically the entire front page to a
cut of New Westminster's proposed
. harbor, together with a comprehensive
description attached.
ThiB publicity accruing to Westminster, Mr. Myers pointed out, would
have a very far-reaching effect in
bringing before the people of the middle Canadian west, as well as those
of British Columbia, the advantages of
this city as an industrial an.1 commercial centie aad a shlpring po.t.

"Whereas, lt is essential that terminal facilities should he erected at
once if full advantage is to be taken
of these routes, therefore, *
"This conference of the Boards   of
Trade, municipal organizations,    and
farmers of Saskatchewan, Alberta and
British Columbia do strongly urge upon the Dominion government and upon the Board of Grain Commissioners
for Canada the necessity of at once
securing a site and proceeding   with
the erection of an up-to-date terminal
elevator with sacking and hospital facilities attached, which will be operated in the interests of the people as a
p.iblic utility and that the governments
of the thre provinces be asked to assist In presenting this matter to the
Dominion government so that speedy
action can be taken thereon, and be it
"Kesolved that this convention, composed of Boards of Tiade,vmuniqipal
organizations  and  farmers of    West
Saskatchewan, Alberta   and    British,
expresses Its deep conviction that excessive freight rates between Saskatchewan and Alberta on the one hand
and British Columbia on   the   other,
are seriously hindering and diminishing the interchange of products under
the present conditions and retarding
''eve'opment in the   three   provinces.

inn mm It did th�� only solution of the
present blockade question. Thlg being
the case Alberta and Saskatchewan
stood leady and willing to aid tbe Pacific ports In a development which
would be of \ital Interest to themselves.
Mayor Lee in one of his tvplcaily
enthusiast!o sreeches before the convention on Fiiday afternoon" said Mr
Myeis, "-I'ealt with the question of
grain exportation advantages possessed by the Kraser river, laying emphasis upon the fact that Westminster
was at tbe present the only Canadian
Pacific rort which had taken steps to
place herself In a position to compete
for a large portion of the Panama canal traffic."
The World and Westminster.
In tfae hall where the convention
was held two maps were displayed upon the wall. One of these was of the
world while the other was of New
Westminster harbor scheme, and In
this way as well as in eveiy other
throughout the duration of the convention New Westminster received
more prominence than either Prince
Rupert or' Vancouver.
At the close of the convention May
or Lee put up a gallant fight to get
the Panama delegates to meet next
year ln this city anl a motion to thi;
effect was seconded by Mr. R. B. Atkins, representative from Revelstoke.
The motion however was lost when
an amendment wns put which left the
matter to the executive to deal with.
Speaking of the results of the con-
venion Mr. Myers said that with the
co-operation of the trinity of provinces
to the ultimate pieparedness of ports
for shipping on the western coast,
would come the aid of the Dominion
Government who were far more like
ly to listen to the representations of
three provinces than one. To further
the purpose of the convention a regular association had been formed in
order that tbe oblective aimed at
might not be lost sight of. Mr. L. P.
Strong, president of the allied Boards
of Trade of Western Canada, had h/sen
chosen to head this organization. One
vice-president was appointed fiom
each province interested. Mr. E. H.
Heaps being the representative from
British Columbia, while Mayor Lee of
this city was a member of the executive or governing body.
Resolutions Favor City.
A number of the Important .resolutions passed at the convention which
affect and favor New Westminster
were as follows:
"Whereas steps have been taken by
the various interests to inaugurate the
system of western shipping of grain
"Whereas, lt ts recognised that with
the rapid development of the west the
present channe's for marketing grain
will soon be completely blocked, a conservative estimate giving tbe wheat
crop of western Canada alone at 250,-
000,000, and,
"Whereas, the development of the
Pacific coast ports and nil other western routes would tend to relieve the
congestion in Alberta and West Sas
katchewan by providing facilities that
would be available the whole year
round, and,
"Whereas the grain export, business
by the Pacific routes will materially

Panama rum'u ui
congestion of the eastern route re-
��� Bttlngr In heavy loss to tbe farmers
and to the whole population of Canada, the Dominion government be urged to give Its best attention to anv
plans approved by its engineers and
endorsed by the municipalities im-
meliately interested that will tend to
relieve the above situation.."
Westminster Prepared.
Speaking in referenece to the last
named resolution Mr. Myers pointed
out that as Westminster was at the
present time the only Pacific port that
had actually piepared plans of this nature lt practically meant that the entire convention went on record as
asking the Dominion government to
give its best attention to the harbor
plans of- Westminster.
in concluding the interview Mr. Myers stated that he hnd been particularly impressed with the importance
of this city being represented on al
occasions of this nature because on1
of the results of the convention had
been to give Westminster a greater
amount of desirable publicity than she
could have achieved ln any other way.
About half past eight last night
telegrams were received in Westmln- j
ster by the publicity commissioner
and the secretary of the Progressive
association, bearing the newa that the
sixty-two members of the delegation
of British manufacturers who are now
touring Canada had de-cided to include
New V\ estminster in their itinera] y.
The wiie was sent by Mr. Leonard
Palmer, of the Financial News, of
London, from Glacier, and stated that
the manufacturers would be delighted
to accept the invitation tendered them
by the city, and to fall in with the
plan i>: oposed to them at Calgary,
namely, that they should embark on
a steamer at Mission Junction, an'd
lunching on her, proceed down the
Praser to the Royal City.
At once all wires in town that lead
to boats here, or even In Vancouver,
were busy, but despite the best efforts
of the two lecipients of the telegrams
nothing in this line could be arranged
at Euch short notice, and on the
night of a publlc holiday. Therefore
an alternative plan was finally decided upon.
Tlie train bearing this important
party will be met at Mission by Mr.
C. H. Stuart Wade ani Mr. Kenneth
Myers, who will travel with the pacty
to Westminster Junction. Here u
fleet of automobiles will be in readiness and in this manner the visitors
will pass CO'iuitlam, the Fraser Mills
and other industries, and on to the
city, thus being enabled to ge>t a com

Mike Howe, a highwayman who had
been sent from England to the colony
on a long sentence aad had escaped to
tiie bush.
They became such a terror to the
peaceful settlers that when Mike Howe
proposed a peace, in which he was to
be "treated as a gentleman," they
were very glad to make the arrangement. But the Governor-General oi
Sydney refused to give his sanction
to the pact, and Howe took to the
bush again. He was pursued by
troops, and in a dreadful hand-to-
hand conflict, was overcome and beheaded by a gigantic soldier known as
"Big Bill."
Howe's followers continued the war
relentlessly, but at last there came a
change. The convicts tired of bush-
ranging, and little by little settled
down to good conduct. The system of
penal settlements was abolished. No
more convicts came out from England,
and the people of the colonies agreed
to forget tho origin of those who were
already there.
Some of the convicts became the
most industrious farmers and the
most thrifty and law-abiding merchant* in the country. Their children

These Humble lurrswsrs Ars Great
| Aids to th* Farmer.
The humble earthworm ls one of
man's best friends. The farmer and
tbe gardener could not spare him. Dr.
J. Newton Friend tells about blm in
Science Progress. From Dr. Friend's
observations lt appears tliat worms
aerate tbe soil ln a variety of ways.
In burrowing through tbe soil tbe
worms render lt more porous and permeable to gases; not merely by virtue
of tbe air spaces formed, but by reason ot the fnct that the soil is thus
continually kept ln gentle motion.
Again, the soil passing through the
bodies of worms ls excreted ln a finer
condition, being ground by attrition
through the Intestines. Darwin estimated that no fewer than fifteen tons
of soil annually pass through the bodies of worms for every acre.
Further, worms breathe In oxygen
and exbale carbon dioxide, and the latter gas, as ls well known, readily dissolves in water, forming an acid solution wbich will render alkaline earths
and metallic oxides���Iron-soluble.
Worms materially aid in producing
soluble salts of iron in the soil wben
otber agencies���ft g��� dilute mineral
acids-fail. The Iron ls eventually given back to tbe soil ln a more soluble
condition nnd presumably ln one wbicb
can be directly absorbed by plant

The   British   "Nut."
The newly developed British dandy
is called a "nut" and Ins taken tha
place of the "behoy." He is a cockney and if found in Ireland is an es-
trayed sne-oinien. Tbe "nut" is the
ultima Thule of the blase in life. He
is worn out with pleasure. Tlie business of the "nut" is with externals.
He has no secret doubts as to liis own
|>erfeetions and is never trouble! by
the sense of humor that helps ohe to
see his own absurdity. The "nut" is
lonelier than a hernWt In his eell.
Even when two "nuts" saily forth together they are both alone. London
Opinion notes that the "nut"��� recoj.
nized only ns the third person, singular pronoun of the neuter gender-
lias a nice sense in handkerchiefs,
socks, ties, pins, waistcoat<. canes snd
gold cigarette holders. \ "nut" only
ceases to be a "nut" when it sees
itseli as ethers see it. It then takes
a less solemn view of life and in many
cases finds relaxation in wi r!t.
of concept and the far-seeing determination  to  lift his country  out of its
(roz:n s!ce.p and set it on the road to
civilization.     Although   his   methods
'were sometimes   drastic,   savoring   of
'that    very    absence    of    civilization
| which he desired to r:m?<ly, he achieved  his purpose.

(Pembrokeshire) when one nf a number of men in the compartment Baid:
"This is a 'smoker'." The old wo.
man, however, took her seat, saying:
"I am a smoker myself." She explained that she had smoked for 15
years, and acquired the habit when
she was in a hospital, a doctor having advised her that tin only cure for
her complaint was to smoke. "I
would rather go to bed without my

added. As soon ss the train had left

brought him back when he returned
to the G.T.R. in February. 1902. In
1901 Mr. Fitzhugh became third vice-
president of the G.T.R., and in 1910,
first vice-president.
Mr. Edson J. Chamberlin, who succeeded Mr. Frank W. Morse as vice-
pi%sident and general manager of the
Grand Trunk Pacific three years ago, j
is somewhat older than Mr. Fitzhugh. He is a native of New Hampshire, and was general manager of
the Canada Atlantic when that road
passed into the hands of the Grand
Trunk. He has lived in Canada since
18dG, and is an able, all-round railway   man.
Mr. McGuigan, jrhose name has
been mentioned in connection with
the big appointment, is better known
to the public than either Mr. Fitzhugh
or Mr. Chamberlin, because of his
n.ther picturesque qualities. He came
np Irom the ranks, and he is the sort
of man about whom manv stories are
told. It is said he called J. J. Hill
a liar on the occasion oi his Tupture
with that magnate when he left the
Great Northern, after a very brief
stay in St. Paul, after he severed his
connection with the G.T.R. It is
also said that he applied tbe same
epithet personally to an Ontario Cabinet Minister in connection with the
construction of the Hydro-Electric
Iir.e, whicli he recently built.
Mr. McGu g3n's success and the faH
that he is looked upon as big enough
to fill Mr. Hays' position may be

$hltj|tiftoG RESULTS.
The im^rt;;.;ee of the passim; of
the S^OCii&Oifcbylaw on Wednesday laat
will he iiiwter-gauged a year hence,
when its results will be palpably ;vl-
ident to anyone who passes along tho
transformed'Front street. We caniiot
see the cents cf the day in their true
prospective at the time they thrust
themselves red hot upon us.
But Ihij.ytpch is abundantly clear,
namely, .thri^Uthe result of the confidence of the people of this city in
themselves, their representatives and
the future of their city as a great port,
is already bearlAg fruit. An aocount
of the i rocedings at the Panama convention a| Calgary will be found elsewhere in this isaue. Here we would
stale that at this cpnference one of the
most striking Of its many features was
that the a^ttyude, of the prairie delegates is nd'ventirely in favor of shipping grain by the western route. Perhaps these farmers of the prairies
realise even more tban the delegates
from B, C, vihat prorcr provision on
the coast for the handling of grain
means to them.
They lost thousands of dollars last
year thr^u^tf, $i��  railways  being unable to take away their grain over the
���eastward running lines;   they realise
that a roai t-p-the, Hudson Bay is for
the immed^t^ jpresent of no use   to
them, and    accordingly    they   Joined
heartily with the men from B. C. ln |
petitioning1 the'government to take Immediate st��t3$ to, provide the necessary
-equipment at ffla coast for the efficient handling-'o'f grain.
To Westminster, one of the most important resolutions passed at the -convention  Is  Xhat  calling   upon  tlie  goi-v-
I have heard that the boys of the
104th are having a very good time at
Macauley Point and that none of them
are iooklng forward to their return to
civilian life. The regiment is expected
back about 8 p. nr. on Tuesday. There
is no doubt that we shall see a great
improvement on their retuin, but 12
days is altogether inadequate and a
man cannot be taught much more than
recruit drill in that time-.
I hope that the affairs- of the local
regiment will be well probed now that
the season's training   Is    completed.
One thing is very certain, and that Is
that, as mattci s stand  at present we
have no reason o be proud of our miff-
tia'ltt the Royal Cl1t/��!id"tKls, In spite
of the fact that at one time we^were
able to hold up our heads and say that
our gun crews were without equal in
the Dominion of Canada; coming to a
later date, A and B companies of the
6th regiment, when they,were the unit
of this city, were certalniyv;the equal
in numbers, physique and general efficiency, of any of   the   headquarter
companies, and the drums and bugles,
though fewer in number, weVe vastly
superior to those of headquaiteis. Now
we have nothing at all, or worse than
that, to compare with the-regiments
of Vancouver.   I am perfectly certain
that New Westminster can produce a
regiment the equal of any in the whole
of Canada, if fairly treated.   Most   oi
the old hands are still here, and there
are hundreds of new ones.    If conditions were altered, and    the    militia
were made popular, I believe^an 8-com
pany rsgimtnt could be   raised   and
kept at full strength without, the slight
est difficulty.    Our population is noi
so transient as that of Vancouver and
consequently the r^rsonnel would not
suffer such  fiequent  changes, which
constitute the chief difficulty   of   the
unlls there.
What must come first of course, is
a rigid and searching enquiry into the
matter and a consequent weeding out
of the evils which are preventing the
growth of the regiment at piesent.
The conditions of service must be al-
tred and made to suit the convenience
of the rank and file, who after all,
have the making or marring of the
whole thing in their hands. If these
conditions be such that it is impossible for a man to fulfil them without
doing himself injury as far as concerns his dally bread, then they must
be modified accordingly or else some
system of compulsion will be necessary. )
My own opinion is that the greatest evil is the fact that the 104th have
been raised as rural militia whereas
the (ith regiment companies here were
trained as a city unit.   There   is   no
doubt that this constitutes the worst
difficulty    against    which    hose    responsible for the welfare of the regiment have to contend.    The clothing
is not uniform and theYe is almost a
complete absence of equipment of any
kind.   That is another factor.   A third
is that the officers lack In Interest,
that is to say/some of them. . A very
smail minority are all that could   be
desired, but the larger proportion take
no interest in the corps whatsoever.
Apart from the regimental staff there
should always be at least two officers
per company on parade,   which   is a
thing I have never seen in the drill
hall here.    What generally seems to
happen js that no officers fall In at
all, but'stand at the mess door and
watch one of the numerous sergeants-
major drilling the combined compan
ies���a most pernicious habit, became
the company comman-'er is first, last
and always, the instructor of tbe company, or should be. as It is to him the
men will look fcr their orders when
cn service and If he is not accustomed
to handling them, and they aie    not
used to his ways, woe betide   everybody concerned.
Of coiH89 the parades have been
very small and with two officers present ier company there is every probability that they would outnumber
the lank and file; but if the companies are going to te .built up In the
right way it is necessary to commence
to do things properly frcm the start,
tliat is to say, even if the parade
should only consist of three men (as
has been the case ere now, I believe)
it should be carried out in just as formal a manner as though there were a
full battalicn present, then as the companies grow the rifilit spirit of discipline will grow with them. Many desirable changes are appa:ent to all of
us, pne might almost say many neces
sary changes, whether or no they are
to be made remains a problem which
the future will solve. Meanwhile the
fact remains, something must be done
and that soon, or the militia of New
Westminster will become a thing of
the past.

Salmon Bellies Win Fourth Victory In Succession In Most
Memorable Gams for Years-Teams Tied and In Extra
TimeC. Spring Notches Decisive Tally.
��� An��i$gt.the:seeae of the-wildest excitement that has ever infected a lacrosse field, no matter whether tn the
$ast or the west, the fajnoua Salmon,
Hellies triumphed;'over I the prblid
Kreen shirts yesterday afternoon to
the tune of 4-3. It was a game that
will f-o down Into history, a game that
befitted the great festival which thousands of Canadians celebrated yesterday, and lt embedded Into the minds
of some 13,000 fans that the national
pastime, handed down from father to
son, from geneiatlons ago when the
Indians would amuse the settleiB with
their exhibitions of "crosse" was still
a feature of more than passing account
in this fair Dominion of Canada.
The old time funs were there, and
while waiting for the fray to start,
many were the tales that brought to
mind the sanguinary battles of former
years. After the 02 minutes of play,-
after Doughey Spiing had put the
game in camphor, they went away
satisfied that tlie boys of today could
still play the game. Never before has
such a celebration been^seen at Recreation Park as that when the red
shirts wended their way back to club
house, tired out but wearing a smile
that showed entire satisfaction over
such an ending. Headgear, cushions,
anything handy, was thrown Into the
air, and it was with some difficulty
that the players from the Fraser river
resisted efforts to shoulder them on
the waiting conveyance back to the
It was expected that something
would happen when the line-up of the
Vancouver team became known. Newsy Lalonde was back in the game assisted by Nick Carter and Harry God-
^ frey. and what defense, asked the fan,
could keep this formidable array in
check. They were answered, and all
must doff the hat to Messrs. Howard,
the Ciffords and Co. for the brilliant
defense these boys displayed.

Defeats Fairview, 8-3.
Tvo . eul surprises occuried in the
Senior AiniUeur league games on Saturday ufternoon, the V. A. C. losing
out In a close fought battle to Victor-
la, while the locals, with a reo ganixed
'.earn, lecruited from the ranks of the
intermediates, trimmed the Fairviews
to the tune of 8-3.
The game at Queens park was wit
nested by a mere handful    of    funs

Methods ef Stage Drivers In ths Mountains ef Mexico.
The drivers wbo pilot tbe stagecoaches through tbe mountains In Mexico
have a way of their own of coaxing
their mules along the rough roads.
The method Is described by Wallace
Olllpntrick in bis book. "The Man Who
Likes Mexico:"
"If you bave never ridden on a Mexican coach you have atitl a new sensation In store. Tbe Chapala coach
bas a cushion on top. and If you are
fortunate ln sharing this seat you mny
ride muy a gusto, seeing the country
and the manner of manipulating an
eight mute team at tbe aame time.
"There are two abott tha alza of rabbits in tbe lead, a atrlng of four ln tho
middle and two larger ones on tha
wheel. The driver bus a whip wltb a
losh long enough to reach tbe leaders.
Ills assistant bas another shorter one,
but hla chief persuaders nre rocks.
"The assistant earns 50 cents a day
nnd free Insurance against dyspepsia.
He alights nt tbe foot ot erery bill and
fills his sombrero with rocks on the
way up. Ho then shies several bowlders big enough to dislocnte n hip at
the leaders, and when tbe whole team
Is In a gallop he swings himself ou to

tmtleta for ber anersy than mere
efforts to outshine her neighbors in
the gorgeousness of her apparel or tbe
splendor of her entertainments; and
behind the gaieties- whicb keep society at the capital in a whirl for
the first few months of each year
there is often mucb of a serious purpose. It is the nature of women,
even in this age when in unprecedented numbers they are engaging
in independent enterprises, to be intensely interested in the interests of
those dear to them', and in political
circles the- women most arerse to entering what Ihey regard as the "province of man" cannot hold entirely
aloof from the keen and exciting1 and
unceasing contest of politics. It is
impossible that they should not take
sides, but, if it is done tactfully and
without bitterness, even an opponent
likes, I believe; to see' a wife standing staunchly by her husband, unceasingly caring for the interests he
has at heart, and helping him, in
ways old or new, asa' woman can.
Whatever idea one may hold on the
question of "woman's sphere'*' in general, one is bound from' the' nature of
the case to take what may be called
an old-fashioned view of the leading
women at Ottawa1. To the outside-
world they are, first and foremost,
the wives or daughters' of the- Honorable Minister of this or that Department; and as their parts are largely
played within the sanctity of home
it is less easy to write of them than it
would be of their husbands���public
men whose public work is not in the
least injured by the utmost possible-
amount of limelight.
Even  a glimpse  into the  lives  led1
by  the  Government ladies whilst at
Ottawa suggests that for psrt,. it not
all,  of the year  they  must he  very
busy women.    For instance, take the
matter   of   receptions   alone.    During

Pacific Coast Metropolis Has No Time
For Problem*.
The lions in their mantles c* snow
look stolidly down from the north on
a busy  summer scene in  Vancouver
these days. These twin peaks, strance-
ly formed like the recumbent king nnd
;queen of beasts, always challenge the
attention  oi   the   stranger,  although
the eager populace seem  busily  unconscious   of   the    impressive,   silent
sentinels.    It was  (nee  intended  to
locate   this   great  hive   cf  commerce
and industry  at Port Mocdy, on the
extreme reach of Burrard Inlet, says
8. T. Wood, the well-known writer in
a recent article.   The men who preempted the room and helped to draw
upon and form the prospective community for its use were sadly disappointed when the Canadian Pacific de-
cided to locate the metropolis at Vancouver.    The  city's  foreshores,   with
the  exception   of  a  few  street ends,
are owned by the railway company,
but that docs not make Vancouver an
inland city.   There ate foreshores owned  by  that  peculiar  institution,  the
Government,    and    people    actually
build houses tliere and live in them.
To some there seems something innately  wicked   in  presuming  to   live
while neither owning nor paying rent
ior  land,   but  the   Vancouver  squatters   are   not   sensitive.    The   vandal
outrage    that   razed    the    timber   of
Dead Man's  Island has been  followed by the  location  of a shack  town
on ite shores. Although the city could
not defend   itself  against  the  timber
vai.dals,   who   have  mnde  the   island
an unsightly blot, it has not only defended    itself     against    ths     shack-
builders, but hns successfully carried
the   war   into   their   territory.    They
���were  technically    sustained    by    the
same Governmental  authority as the
triumphant    timber   vandals,    which
goes  to  show   that  officialia  is  much
the sam-!  here  as elsewhere.
The city is too busy for problems.
The  thousand   turbaned  Sikhs  would
have  been  a  problem  elsewhere,  but
they do not seem to strain the city's
capacity for absorption.   In the mills,
on   tliH   railways,   in  gardens,   in   orchards, and on [arms they nre gradually acnuirhis western speed and losing    their    dependent   and    childish
���ways.   Like all Orientals, they make
but   small   contributions   to   the   unearned increment.   For this and other
reasons they  are  locally  regarded as
undesirable.     The   Chinaman   is   exemplifying the economic law through
which   the   ultimate   consumer   pays
the duty.   He shifts the $50ff tax by
asking $40 a montli for domestic ser-
|vice.     The   Japanese   exemplify   the
more   ageressive    Oriental     attitude.
Welcomed gladly by the salmon canneries   because    they    are    cheaper
than  white  fishermen, they soon got
the fishing into their own hands.   In
spite  of  theories   about  the  superior
courage   and    determination    of   the
���white   races   its   representatives   here
are reluctant toward going out on the
���water   at  night   where   the  Japanese
��n   ft��H\:i=.      IV,   '.��   not   hinted   ttvat
the JaJVa"h6se -would cut a net ot ime, I
ot do anything which other fishermen 1
would not do. But fishermen are I
fishermen, and the thousand eye3 ol 1
night are not always  open.
The Japanese will not always remain rowers of boats and haulers ot
nets. The wheel ot chance set in
motion by the employment of them
by the canners has not exhausted its
momentum, and they may displace
tlie white fishermen. They have
shown their capacity this spring by
organizing a codfish trust, and they
control tiie local market by keeping
thoir lish alive in the tank compartments of a vessel. They have determined tliere shall be no more bargain dnys in codfish. The-mental
subtlety of the Oriental is levying its
toll, but it is an excellent corrective
of the complacent vanity of the west.

The Men Who Fou?ht In Them Wers
Evidently Cmill Men.
���In an exhibiting df armor a visitor
is apt to be interested at first less
in the art of the armorer than in ih**.
practical question of how armor could
ever have been worn. It was certainly heavy. A suit Weighed fifty pounds
or more; somo tinjes the headpiece
alone, in the caae of a helm for tilting, illicit weigli thirty pounds. And
it was evidently uncomfortable���"a
rich armor worn in heat of -day that
scalds with safety," wrote Shakespeare, who probably knew his theme
at lirst hand.
In fact, a complete harness must
have been stuffy enough on a summer's day, but we can safely say it
was not, as hot as one imagines, for
the polished surface reflected the
hent, just as a bright andiron remains cool in front of a fire. Doubtless, tod, it was cold Ln winter, but
tne metal surfaces were not in contact with the wearer; heavy buff leather or padded garment! stood between, these mainly, though, for the
purpnsu (,f deadening tlie actual shock
Of afrits.
A surprising thihg is tliat tlie men
who wore armor were generally not
of heroic but of small alee. This, I
think, is admitted, though not without an occasional protest. Thus, Lord
Dillon, curator of the Tower armories, notes that parts of the armor can
be lengthened or shortened, depending upon how tbey are mounted, so
that a suit apparently for a short man
may have served for a man of average size.
In rny own ex|x>rience I must nevertheless conclude the average size
of harnesses is small, even when their
Adjustability is taken into account.
Of twenty odd suits I have in mind
oni/ one is large enough to have fitted a man of five feet ten who weighed 21,0 pounds. Especially small were
the beads. There are, for example,
in my collection six casques dating
from tlie fifth century. Tliey are so
little that they will hardly'go over
a  head   of   average   size.
Their wearers must, therefore, have
had singularly small crania, for between casque and head heavy padding
was worn as a protection from shock.
"It is difficult to believe that these six
casques are exceptions in size, and
they could hardly have been prepared
for children, for such juvenile pieces
are excessively rare, so large a numher���hall a dozen���occurring only in
a few  national collections.
Silent  John   Burns.
John Burns is going down to Lancashire, where he will shake off "the
cold chain of silence that has hung
o'er him long." Kngiish gossips, who
will insist on putting two and two
together so as to make five, assert that
his silence arises from the fact that
there is no love lost between him and
Mr. I.loyd-George. who was not sulli-
-ulantly careful to ���x-ctulr, John'*

and insurance schemes. ".J.T5.', at*

held his peace on all those legislative
efforts. For a strange compound is
John. As the first workingmau to attain to Cabinet rank, he reflects unbounded credit t-> 'he c'ass from which
hj sprang, and the credit is not lessened by the fact that lie is entirely
n self-made man; hut it is equally
undoub'ed that Heaven has given him
a good conceit' of himself. The late
King Edward, who dearly loved his
little joke, was wont���so cynical people said*���to point out with bited
breath to visitors to Windsor Castle
tlie cnair on wliich John Hums once
.sat, and the bedroom in which John
Burns once slept; and there were
other evil-tongued people who told
that when Sir Henry Campbell-Ban-
Herman offered him a seat in the
Cabinet, the imperturbable elect of
Battersea replied: "The most popular
thing you have done yet." But when
all is said, the fact remains that he
is one of the most remarkable men of
our time. He has about him all the
charm oi a strong, self-reliant manhood, and hia dark, soft, gleaming
eyes invite thst confidence wllich men
of all shades of political thought ha.e
not been slow to repose in him.
Lighting   London   In   1715.
Tlie question of the lighting of L':n-
don was settled in simple fashion in
1715. The common council "repealed,
annulled and made void all the former acts concerning the lighting of
London" as a preliminary measure
and then proceeded to enact that "all
housekeepers whose house, door nr
gateway fronts or Hei next to any
strei t, lane or public passage or plao
of the said city shall in every dark
night���that is, every night between
the second night after each full moon
and the seventh night after each full
moon���set or bang out one or more
liphta with sufficient cotton wbks tint
shal! continue to burn lrom ('��� o'clock

night on penalty of a shilling."

They Come From Cuts That Go Down
to the True Skin.
There nre people who tell you thnt
everything In the body is changed every seven years and that there Is do
part of It which was there seven years
ago. This does not mean that we
slough the whole thing off at once, as
n snake does Its skin or a deer Its antlers, but simply that tbe Innumerable
and tiny atoms wbicb are used up b.v
the daily wear and tear are replaced
by fresh atoms supplied by our food
and drink, which keeps tbe body golpg.
just as coal nnd water keep the steam
engine at work.
But these changes are so minute nnd
gradual tbut tbe form of the body remains the same, although sucb things
as scars take u long time to disappear,
nud sometimes tbey remain for life, although they always lose a great deal of
their promloenee.
You bave noticed tbat If you cut .vour
finger slightly it will soon beal up and
the scar will soon disappear. Just as lhe
marks of n superficial burn will grad-
uull.v ko away,  but If tbe cut  Is deep

skin are gradually pushed up nnd worn

Curious Ceremonial of Taking a Child
Into a Shawnee Tribe,
The adoption dance Is one of tbe
ceremonlul dance* of tbe Shnwnees.
This Is quite different from uny one
of the festive dances. Tbey come
many miles around aud camp. Their
faces are painted and their persons
decorated wltb beads.
They dance all day and night without eating. A bonHre Is built In (he
center of tbe camp, and they dance
around this. Tbe flre l>i kept burning
about the same all the time. Tbis
serves also as their light.
The adoption dance Is rather quiet,
more so than the otber dunces. The
women do most of tbe singing, says
a writer In the Hod Man, and slug
very low. Tbey dance around tbe circle In twos. The men dance together
In front and the women togetber in
tbe rear.
The two lenders In front are usually
the ones wbo nre adopting the child.
They carry tin palls. In these are
rubber balls, which bounce and keep
time wltb the drummer. Tbls Is all
the music tliey have to dance b.v. If
h large crowd Is assembled they may
have two or three drums.
At these dances good order Is kept.
No drunkenness Is allowed. The dance
is lu a grove, nnd if any one does not
hebnve decently tbey tie him to a tree
tor tbe rest of the dance. After the
dance tliey bave a great feast, wbleh
lasts all day. nnd visitors and all others who attend the dance nre Invited
to partake of tbe feast.
