System of National Railways.
Privllegea of Foreigners Widely    Extended���Lines Revert to Government In Forty Years. v
Peking, Sept. 11.���-The project for
a great scheme of Chinese railways
which holds the foremost place in Dr.
Sun Yat Sen's program for the
modernization of China, has commanded the support of the Peking
government and It may involve a
great extension of the privileges -of
the foreigners in thc country and
possibilities of an Immense increase
in Chinese foreign trade.
The government has authorized Dr.
Sun Yat Sen, who was formerly provisional president of the republic, to
establish a railway corporation to
carry out a system of national railways covering territory Beventy thousand miles iu extent.
Mixed Companies.
Mixed Chinese and foreign com
panies \.-ill be granted concessions
throughout China proper for periods
of about forty years, after whicli tlm*
the lines are tr, revert to China.
Similar concession* are to be gh-on
to foreigners for tbe liticrmedinte fll J-
trlcts. but the railroads in the frontier provinces will be under exclusively Chinese control and win "be
financed through foreign loans apart
from the other railways.
Dr. Sen's proposals are to open the
whole of China to foreign enterprise,
but to make foreigners amenable to
Chinese laws for which special court:t
are to be established. The govern
ment has not sanctioned the last
features or the project, but Dr. Sen
fully expects that they will be ap
proved.

EVEN TELEPHONES
TELL OE PROGRESS
Westminster's 1500 Subscribers    Are
Double  Number of Two Years   ,
Ago���Still  Growing.
The enormous growth of the city
commercially and otherwise during
tbe past two years la vividly brought
to light by the great increase in the
number of subscribers on thc new
directory Just being Issued by the B.
C. Telephone company and by statis
tics given out by a local official of
the comjtauy.
There are 1500 local people's names
on the aew book and though no comparative statements have been Issued
authority is attached to the assertion
that tbis latest figure is almost double
that af two years ago. However, this
is evidenced In another manner.
Mo less than forty new telephones
back oiily thirteen operators were em
ployed In the local exchange, while
thirty-two are at present on the start
and a big extension has been made
to the board. Orders for new phones
have ibeen coming In at the rate of
about twenty a month since the first
of January, and surprisingly few-have
been removed trom residences or
offices where they had been previous
ly located.
No less than forty ne wtelephones
have been installed tn New Westminster since thc beginning of this month
and the probability is tliat this number will be also doubled before September 'inds.
But Westminster Is not alone in her
progresh for in all the towns and
cities ot the lower mainland where
telephone offices are located large advances are shown in the number of
subscribers, while some budding cities
that have not been on the map much
over a year have hundreds of names
to their credit.

August Fisher, a short distance nortli'
of tho city, County Detective J. W
Sampson, who had been assigned
discover the writer of threaten!
letters to Fisher, arrested Arthu'
Quincy Hoffman, a fellow farm hand,,
today as he waa setting flre t<B
Fisher's barn.
For two months Fisher, who It.
wealthy, has received letters threaten-'
lng his life and tbe lives of his wife
and five children if he did not place
$2500 In gold where the writer of the
letters could flnd them.
Last July Fisher's barn was burned
but Hoffman, who slept in the loft,
escaped unscathed. Hoffman wat
greatly interested in the "black hand''
letters and volunteered to protect the
Fisher family, frequently running
from the barn at night and firing a
pistol at mythical intruders, but the
letters continued to come regularly.
Ten days ago Fisher appealed to
the sheriff and Sampson, disguised as
a farm hand, appeared at the Fisher
home and went to work ln the potato
fleld, sleeping at night with Hoffman.
At first Hoffman was suspicious of thc
newcomer, but Sampson's prowess as
a potato digger won Hoffman over
and he confided to the detective that
he thought Fisher ought to give up
the money. The detective watched
Hoffman closely after the receipt of
a letter Monday threatening to dyna
mite the Fisher home and arrestee
him today just after he had set flr��
to the new barn.
Hoffman is in the county jail.

to commit suicide tonight by shooting
herself In the head ln their apartments on tho South Side.
She had been in ill health for a
year, according to Johnson, aud at
times was despondent. Her condition
was such for several montha that
Johnson, acting on the advice of her
physician, employed two maids to
watch her continually.
Johnson, In the hope that a ch&njp
of climate would beneflt her, had plan
ned to loave tonight with his wife for
Las Vegas. N. M. He went down
town to buy the tickets and when he
returned to his apartments he found
hls wife lying on the floor with a
bullet wound In tho head.
Mrs. Johnson was removed to a
hospital where an examination "by
physicians revealed that the bullet
had passed completely through the

According to the two maids who
were In the room, when Mrs. Johnson
shot herself she was' seized with a
flt of desnondency shortly after her

been partly outlined in these' columns.
An invitation to be present at the
meeting was extended to the captain,
which he graciously accepted.
Several other important subjects
will come before the gathering. Of
greatest interest probably will be
the reading of the reports of Sec
retary Kenneth Myers and Mr. W. L.
Darling on their trip to Calgary to
bring before the grain people the
merits of Westminster as a grain
port. The accounts are of a most exhaustive nature and are expected to

f.cci-g of the Westminster Trades and
Labor Council should alt on the samc-
Jilatform with Hon. Joseph Martin, the
British member of parliament for
past St. Pancras, who speaks ln St.
Patrick's hall on Friday evening, form
ed the feature of last night's meet
lng of the council.
It was natural that there should
be a debate and it had a tendency to
show the standing of his stalwart..
In the city and also his opponents.
The upset came wlvh the reading ol
an invitation to tbe officers of the
council from Delegate Arthur Hogg,
a member of the reception committee
to Mr. Martiu, asking the officers K
take seats on the platform at St. Pa;
rick's hall.
Delegate Knutson was . the firs*
speaker against the proposition and
he failed to see why organized labor
should sit on the platform with Lib
erals and Conservatives or enter politics  whatsoever.
"What has he evet done tor labor?" he said. "Nothing to my knov.-
���edge and I compare Martin to Theo-
dore Roosevelt, who is doing a lot of
talking but has never done anything."
"ThiB Invitation comes from the Independent Labor Party and from
what I know of this organization, it
died a ljatural death several years
ago. I have ro objection to the labor party affiliating themselves with
Keir Hardie, a man who has done
more for the laboring class than forty
Joe Martins."
Delegate Hogg came to the defence
of the invitation and said that Martin
had fought side by side with Hardie
for the labor men and had supported
all the n-eaanres which had gono
through the British parliament and
which had benefited the working
class. He had voted for the veto of
the House of Lords and had done
gocd work for the National Insurance
Bill. i
To Dele(ra*�� (Irmttt It appeared *o b? /
a matter of principle. If the off:cer3 i
of the council sat on the platform
with Mr. Martin they would be glvln? '
him ostensible support which tbe dele
gate strenuously objected to. The
Trades and Labor Council had nothing in common with the ex-provlncial
premier who was first and last and
everything for Joe Martin.
"He has come to be regarded as a
political joke in Canada. He was unable to get any support In the Dominion so that he had to go to the Old
Country where they knew little of
him. He had supported the Liberal
party solely for the purpose of keeping the present government in power"
Others sticke for and against the
invitation but it was final'v decided
to accept It without the officers sitting on the "latform.
Delegate Christie wsip In the e'nir
in place of President B. A. Stoney.
absent.
A letter was recelTed from the secretary of the Progressive Association
askine the sunport of the council in
compiling statistics as to ttie number
of men employed In the city and their
salaries. The secretary was instruct
ed to give all the Information he
conld.
Delegate Christie reported thai
everything was satisfactorily arranged In regard to tlie hospital building
and Delegate Grant moved that a
vote of appreciation be given Acting
Mayor Grav and hla colleagues on thc
city council for their work In this re
gand.   Passed unanimously.
Delegate Knutson spoke In favor o*
holding a mass meeting In the near
future for the purpose ot organizing
the city laborers.
Delegate Bacon gave notice of motion to change the constitution. The
amendment is to change article 4 bv
add'ng another section which would
read: Delegates elected to represen'
the council at any convention shall
be 'allowed $5 pei- day to and trom
the convention and transportation

Regarding' the haval question, Mr.

Borden's Visit.
"Premier Borden's YN��tt to England
to   discuss    naval   matters was    an
epoch-making event.   I had the pleasure ot meeting him ona number of
occasions and can only aay that   no
statesman from the overseas dominions ever made a more favorable 1m-
presslon  on the  British people  than
he.   The depth and sincerity   of his
language in discussing   the relations
between Canada and the motherland
were most Impressive.. ^Vhat form of
assistance Canada may give Is a matter for herself to decide.    While    a
good deal can be said Hn favor cf tin
Dominion building a navy of its own,
that program will not meet the present difficulty. The position is urgent.
There  Is  cot  the  slighfeslt  doubt  In
my mind  that    Germany    entertains
ulterior    designs    against     England.
Germany   today  is   looking anxiously

do and Us pollcy will be mod'fled in

adopt;  in other words Germany will
be wary about what she does.
Wants Action Now.
"It Is nol the amount or the form
that the contribution    from    Canada
takes, so long as she makes it clear
that she ls in earnest.   We feel that
there are two situations, the present
ore and the future.   That ts why w��
would welcome a contribution    from
Canada now.   Throughout my present
trip ! hare been amazed at the number of members of both parties who
have    Informed    me    that    they are
heartily in   sympathy   with   the   Dominion standing by Great Britain   in
the present international crisis."

UNLIKELY TO MEET

Opinion Gaining ip Ottawa���Big Announcements Not Usually Made--
Before Chrlstmaa.
Ottawa, Sept. 11.���The   impression'
that parliament wlll   not   meet   till
January continues to grow.
Among groups of members of parliament now in the city the probabilities of the session are being discussed, and, while the matter has not yet
been considered by the cabinet, the
opiu.bi. tg widely entertained that the
house mu.' not assemble till immediately after New Yeara.
There la an immense amount of
work to be got ready and once ths
house opens the ministers have only
one day a week with Saturday for
council meetings. Furthermore, lt
haa been repeatedly demonstrated
that a fall session accomplishes little
beyond much talk.

policies are announced before Christ*

prefers a January seaaion aa conducive to work from tbe start and

Lillooet, Sept. 11.���The survey of a
route for the projected line of raft
from the Lillooet Lake country to tilt
Fraser river at Port Haney Is now In
full swing. Although the object of
the new track is not officially declared by the B. C. Electric Railway Company, who are supposed to be at the
back of the undertaking, it is understood that they desire an outlet to the
river from their n<!w route from Lillooet Lake to facilitate the obtaining
of supplies at that point. The line
will also be used to bring down logs
from the large timber limits situated
ten miles to the north of Port Haney
These limits are 90 square miles in
eytent. and contain as good timber as
there is anywhere In the province. If
the new line should be used for passenger purposes, it would be of inestimable service to Port Haney anil to
the agricultural community as far a:t
Stave Lake.
The route at present under survey
Is being orlt'cized locallv, as it in-
vr.les some difficult grad'nc and excavation In the Knnaka ravine, which
would be avoided! U is said, by a

Competition  of  Interests  Instead
Union Is Trouble with the
Country.
of
Atlantic City, N. J., Sept. 11.���Poll
tlcal battle with less personal passion
and an end to the "war within the
country by competition of classes,'
were the Ideals which Governor
Woodrow Wilson set forth tonight 111
a speech before the United Spanish
War Veterans.
"The trouble with thiB country,"
said the governor, "is that it has been
blindly at war within Itself by a com-
potion of Interests when they Bhould
have been a union of interests.
"I belong to a political party, but 1
respect a political party merely as tin
means of banding men together for i
common service in which they ma;
(orget parties.
"I wish that party battles could b>
fought with less personal passion am
moro passion for the common good,
am not interested in fighting persons
but I am Interested In fighting things
I am Interested In fighting bad tei:
dencies. bad systems, things that low
er all the levels of our political an
economic morality; and I could wis!
that these things were visible am
tangible so that we would not have ti
light them through  persons.''
Greetings from President Tnft wer
received by the veterans In a met,
sage from Chairman English tonight
as follows;
"Please accept for yourself, you
committee and your comrades in en
campmenti my warmest thanks fu
your kind message of greeting. Vo
took part in a war for your ootratrj
whicii though short, involved the live
and showed the courage of manv An-

Perth, \V. A., Sept. 11.���Tremendous was the reception given the Canadian cadets on their arrival in the
western state. True to his promise
given Captain Davy while in Vancouver lust December,   Lieutenant   Sim-
ain has now caught up wun her rivals jonB' of .the Young Australia  League.
In aerial war tactics. That the result
of thc manoeuvres at Aldershot had
been a great triumph for tbe air fleet
ts without doubt, and is even commented upon favorably this mcrn^ng
by those papers which previously took
the war office to tank for neglecting
tbls new arm of the service.
Every known device was used by
the land forces to cope with aviation
corps without result, lt was found
absolutely Impossible to properly
Judge distance and range when ordinary guns wore pitted against thes;
hornets of the air.
Experta who were with the troopa
during the manoeuvres declare the
height and speed obtained by the
aerial fleet Incalculable, and aB a result the value ot this arm of the service could not begin to be estimated.
In every experiment such as firing
from light guiiB and. dropping bombs
on imaginary camps of an enemy, th-
airmen proved their competency
rarely registering a failure.
As a result of these trials the war
office has announced that the roofs ol
all buildings which contain explosives
at naval and military centres will ,in
future, be armored Orders have been
issued to make these alterations at
once, and several different types of
armor are to be tried out in further
experiments at Aldershot. Oil tanks,
arsenals and magazines, It Is now recognized, would bo almost at the
mercy of an enemy's air scouts, hence
the haste with which the war offlci
will enrry out nsceHsary alterations.
In the latest warships a apecial armored deck has been built, designei
to with stand overhead attack. Now
land defences also are to be made se
cure from damage by aerial cruisers.
NEW YORK'S MAYOR
REFUSES TO TALK
arranged a reception, which, for
whole-hearted hospitality, could not
be excelled.
The arrival of the cadets at Perth
resulted In the closing of all the busi
ness houses of the city. A universal
half holiday was observed, and the
streets were lined with cheering
c.rowd3 as the cadets, headed by the
Young Australia League, marched to
the league's headquarters.
The boys, since their arrival here,
have been kept constantly on the go,
entertainments and banquets, sight
���icc'rig and auto rides, filling In a grea!
deal of their time. Banquetted by
the mayor, the government, the military, and the governor of the state,
the boys are truly learning, from thi
many speeches delivered at these
functions, that Australia desires to es
tablish a closer union with the sister
dominion.
The government railways have been
placed at the disposal of the visiters
and on Saturday next the cadetf
corps will leave for the Goldflelds. Ac
companylng them will be the twc.
bands of the Young Australia League
Probably one of the most nove'
banquets ever given, was attended by
over four hundred boys last night
when the Canadians were the guests
of honor.
Altogether the visit of the Domin
len of Canada representatives has \
electrified the west. Enthusiasm ls a'
fever heat, and Canada is the chief
topic of discussion both on the street
and the press. This enthusiasm ie
particularly marked owing to the fact
of the successful tour of Lieutenant
Simon's cadets around  the  world.
The tour Is proving a success beyond all expectation. In November
the tourists will reach New Zealand.
There the government hare also promised free transportation on the railways, and a splendid program of entertainment both educational and
social.

New York, Sept. 11.���Kor more
than two hours yesterday afternoon
��� Willlmn J. Oaynor, mayor of Neiv
York, sat In a witness chair at the
Clty Mall and parried with picture-
sque retort and evasion the attempts
of counsel for an aldermanic committee, to learu his views on the pollce
situation.
At no time during his examination
would he admit that the police department was InelTlcent. He expressed renewed confidence In tthinelander
Waldo, cion missloner of police, and
said that if the social evil flourished
It was at least on the decrease, ami
was a less evil than pollce blackmail,
which he had tried to eradicate.
Nine out of every ten questions
asked b.v Uuckner remained unanswered. The mayor had formed no
opinions, he said, and had not come
to tell his opinions. If he were aBk-
ed about facts pr about any Instances
wherein the police department had
violated the law he waa ready to answer.
'Four things, he' said, he had
brought about In tho department���he
had done away with police "violeric?
and clubbing," he had forbidden the
practice of policemen degrading themselves to get evidence he had Insisted on the Integrity of the civil service so tbat "Murphy or anybody else
can't Influence appointments," he had |
done away with graft in connection
with enforcement of the liquor laws.
This graft, he said, had amounted to
$3,000,000 annually.
REFORM OF VOTORC LIST
IS  KELOWNAS  PRESENTMENT
Kelowna. Sept. 11.���Before the Municipal Commission which met here,
among many recommendations mad"
by the mayor and aldermen of Kelowna. was an important one by Hi3
Worship Mayor Jones, relative to the
method of compiling municipal voters'
lists. A large number of question regarding the present difficulty experienced by cities and municipalities In
the preparation of the voters' list
were ssked. A clause appears In the
Municipalities Act wbich restricts the
franchise so far as property owners
are concerned, to holders of registered deeds. Thereby were excluded all
owners under agreements of sale. Not
onlv is this a great injustice to many
people who are reallv and truly thp

London, Sept. 11.���Premier Borden's tribute to England's vitality
sent a pleasant thrill through the Old
Country, and this morning the thrill
was Intensified by Col. Sam Hughes
declaration, after witnessing the military manoeuvres, that, profiting b>
the lessons of the Boer war, the British army had become the finest ln
the world, barring none.
England feels young and newspaper
comments show her delight at find
ing she also looks young to trained
Canadian eyes. The purport of edi
torials In a dozen leading journals is
best B.'.mmed up by the Dally Graphic
which says; "We have only to look
around to see the absurdity of tin
Idea that England, an any vital sense,
Is older than the historically younger
nations she has brought Into the
world. Everywhere there is evidence
of a vitality and willingness to face
new dangers, grapple with new prob
lems and demonstrate to the world
that the vigor of England does not
die."

THREW ACID  IN  EYES
Man   Dies  in   New York���Girl  Assail
ant Arrested.
New York, Sept. 11.���Screams coming from a park in Brooklyn late last
night brought a crowd of passersby
hurrying to a secluded bench where
they found a man with hands pressed
to his eyes moaning that a woman
had thrown acid in his face.
The police arrested a girl who gave
her name as Esther Capaton and led
her to the park bench, but the man
was so badly burned he could not see
her. He died before the ambulanc������
arrived.
Under pressure from the police the
girl said she knew the man as 3am
uel Kaplan and that he had taken all
her money under faithless promises
of marriage. She declared that he was
one of a group of swindlers wanted
in Chicago.
Although she insisted that he had
taken the acid himself after trying to
force her to drink It, she was looked
up on a homicide charge.

As far as the supply of cars is con-1the flr3t ^n  Canada  to "cognize *hB
cerned, it is certainly not the fault of
the railways. They have the siding3
crowded with as many cars as can be
handled. AS to the rates ot freight,
they ought'to be to some extent a
matter of supply ,and demand.
When ahy'commodity is in frantic
demand, it is Impossible to keep down
the price of it. The railway freights
in the West are higher than they
ahould be. The flrst change that

that it TeqifirW high rates to attract

freights be high or low, or whether

can bejjbronelrt out, or than can be

that the farmers all want their money

It is unfortunate that the universities do not adopt this method of con-

MINTO CUP GAMES
]  IN EXHIBITION WEEK
Arrangements Made for Cornwalls to
Play Ootober 1 and 5��� Record
Crowd Expected.
Everything was patched up ln regard to the Minto cup games yesterday and the series between the Salmon Bellies and the visiting Cornwall team will take place on October
1 and 5, Tuesday and Saturday of exhibition week. Mr. Joe Lally received
a reply from the Factory Town yesterday afternoon accepting the dates
offered  by the exhibition authorities.
That there will be a record crowd
at the two games goes without saying
its interest in the doings of tho old
N. L. U. teams was never greater than
it is this year.
I.ally is confident of success and
states that when the two teams clash
on Queens park the supporters of th"
national game in the West will surely
have their eyes opened.

VANCOUVER PLANS
TO WIN UST GAME
THREE TEAM LEAGUE
WILL HELP LACROSSE
Matt   Barr Gives Views���Up to  Vancouver and Westminster to Pull
Together.
"A third team in the league has got
to come," stated Matt Barr, of Vancouver yesterday afternoon, as he
PBM hobnobbing around with Joe
Lally and Wells Gray. "For my part
I think It will bo the very b:;st move
In the interests of lacrosse on the
c^ast should Victoria be included in
the league next season with Jimmy
Murphy and perhaps Joe Lally in
charpe.
"A two team leagire may be all
r'plit for a few years, but such
estrangements as have occurred this
t*eaat n were bound to happen, and, if
the present officials and delegates of
the B. C. L. A. know where they are
at they should jump at the chance of
having tlie Capital City included in
the <.r<anIzat!on."
When asked whether Con Jones
was ready to drop out of lacross?
pf'-r this season. Mr. Burr became
reticent. "I have heard nothing about
it." said he, "except through the
press, and if he did, there are plenty
more to take his place ln Vancouver.
You fellows over here in New Westminster Bhould not forget the fact
that Con Jones has done a great deal
lo bring up lacrosse to Its present
Ftardard, and If everyone would pull
together. New Westminster and Vancouver, there would be none of ths
ill feeling that now exists."

BASKETBALL LEAGUE
104th Regiment Makes Fourth Team-
Important Meeting Tonight
With the acceptance of tbe 104th
regiment to enter basketball circles
this coming winter, the possibility of
st four team league ls fast becoming
a reality. The Moose, Y. M. C. A.,
Columbian college and the 104th will
comprlae the league. With the aplen-
did playing space tbat the armoury affords together with the gym at the
Y. M. C. A. there appears no reason
why a local league should not prosper, and why the stars selected from
*ach team to uphold New Westminster's name agalnat outsiders such as
Vancouver, Victoria and Bellingham
should not do worthily also.
A meeting of the league Is called
for this evening nt the Y. M. C. A.
v hen arrangements will bo made fc
ixn early start. Delegates from the
m-ith will be Lieutenant II. W. Sangster and Sergeant H. Munn.
The annual meeting of the regimental athletic club wlll be held in
the armoury next Tuesday evening.

FRANK PATRICK PLAN8
TOUR TO AUSTRALIA
Ottawa, Sept. 11.���Bruce Redpnth
this morning sa'd that Frank Patrick.
*f Vancouver, B.C., next spring, after
the olose of the hockey season, Intends to take a picked team of eastern and western hockey atars to Australia to play exhibltlAn game3 In
that country.
They have an artificial Ice olant st
���Sydney and it is evpected that thi
���novelty will draw big crowds. . Th9
trip tfbuld last two months.
Added interest in the last game of
thc B. C. lacrosse season, which takes
place at Queens park on Saturday
afternoon, has been lent by the assent
of Joe Lally. perhaps one of the best
known lacrosse officials In the business, to face-off the ball.
Lally is one of the trustees of the
Mann cup, but he will pass up the
Vancouver game so that he may get
a line on the work of the Salmon
Bellies. "We people back east hav.
been readii\j of the continual successes of the Westminsters over the
Vancouver team and I am eager to
see them in action," lie said.
It is probable that tlie Royals will
field their old team with the exception of Punk Wintemute. Punk is
laid up with a broken rb sustained
n the Labor Day game, but with care
ful treatment during the next two
weeks he expects to be in the thick
of it when the Cornwalls clash.
Bill Turnbull has been out cf action
for the past three games with n
strained tinkle, but the big defence
player report's himself in ship shape
to take one moie go at the green
shirts. It will be remembered that
Bill scored one of the besi. goals of
the season In the last game he took
part In, throwing the ball over the
shoulder of Harry Godfrey.
The present standing of the league
shows Westminster to have won
eleven matches while Vancouver hai
won four. That the green shirts wil!
try their utmost to repeat last Saturday's success is without question and
Manager Jones is coming over with
the strongest team he can Held.
The losing of the Minto cup and
also the Hartney trophy has been
gal) ing to the green shirt manager,
and nothing will please him better
than to take the measure of the Sal
mon Bellies in the last game of the
season.
As for the Royals, they were oul
for a full practice last evening keeping In the same good condition as
has been their feature during the
season. Saturday s game will start
at 3 o'clock with Lally and Kaeanaugh
In charge. This will be the last game
that Kavanaugh will handle, and Mr.
ex-Shamrock player will hike for the
East on the first transcontinental
leaving Vancouver following the game.

Bv EDUARD  K. DROANE
I esteem those hoys wbo are obliged
to flght tbeir own way up ln the world
most fortunate and tbose brought up
to wealth most enfortunute. .
I came of a family of tbe middle
class and from childhood wns made to
understand tbut 1 would have to flgbt
my own way in tke world. But I waa
given an education, whicb Is considered and usually ls essential to success. j
At sixteen I was about to accept a position In business wben an uncle of
mine suddenly made a fortune by a
deal In tbe stock market He bad tbs
good sense to Invest his gains ln good
first mortgage bonds and never after' [
ward risked a cent In speculation. i
My uncle was a bachelor sixty years
old, and my mother was bis favorite [
���ister. He bad always shown a par- |
tiality for me and proposed to my
mother that he should send n*e to college and make me his heir, for be
claimed that lie bnd no desire to marry
aod If be should marry at hls time of
life be would wish he hnd not married. I longed for a college education and for my part was glad to accept ray uncle's proposition
I spent four yenrs at college, my expenses being pnld hy m.v uncle. Indeed, he gave me an allownnce tbat

of his household. His illness wus
destined to he a protracted one. and,
tbere being no one but myself to do
anything for blm. I nssumed charge not
only of bia domestic but his other affairs.
I spent flve years ministering to the
old mnn. living ln his bouse with hlm
and devoting myself exclusively to
him. 1 regretted that my professional
studies had been broken Into, bnt since
I was heir to n fortune nnd bad what
money I needed I did not repine. True,
my uncle wns very irritable and often
tried my patience, but the doctors assured me thi!>t be could live ouly a few
years at most, and tben. baring means
at my command, I could make up for
lost time, for, be lt understood, I waa
not content to live in Idleness nnd especially desired n career.

THE  OPEN  MOUTH.
Causes That  Indues It  When  Ws Ar.
Intently Listening.
Why do we open our mouths wbeu
Intently listening?
Tbere are three causes, entirely Independent of one another, bnt actlug
lu iiuison. for tbis action. There ls a
passageway called the eustachian tube,
connecting tbe back of tbe throat and
tbe middle ear, the part behind tbe
drum. When tntentlj listening we
bold our breath, and thia permits
sound waves to enter the moutb and
reach the eustachian tube, and to this
way they reach tbe drum and re-eu-
force tbe sound waves tbat come
through tbe natural channel, the outer
ear.
Id concentrated attention the mind Is
fully engrossed In the one subject, and
It loses control over voluntary muscles
that are not directly afTected by the
subject or the process Involved In the
motor activity that accompanies mental activity. The muscles are relaxed,
tbe lower Jaw drops, and thla opens
tbe mouth.
Tbe third cause Is referable to ata-
' vism. or the tendency to return tn form
or action to an early type. Early man.
like tbe animals, was urged to action
liv tbe fundamental Instincts, self
preservation and race preservation.
His two alms were to secure food and
svold or destroy enemies. Like the
animals, wben bis attention was attracted by a sound be placed himself
i In tbe attitude for Instant defense, attack or securing food. In this attitude
his mouth was open to grasp Instantly
wbnt came tn his wsy. Tbe tendency
to open the mouth wben Intently listening still remains.���New York Amer

DIG THEIR OWN GRAVES.
English Army Methods In the Execution of Condemned Spies.,
The ceremony of dis|Kisiug of a con
demued spy  In  the  English army al
ways follows a definite precedent.
The unfortunate mnn Is surrounded
by a detachment of Infantry, and nfter
I he Is provided with a pick and shovel
he Is marched off to a selected s|>ot
i and ordered to dig bis own grave.
j This done, the tools are taken from
' him and his eyes are bandaged.    The
attending chaplain rends portions se-
i lected   from   tbe   burial   service,   and
from the ranks of the escort twelve
1 men nre selected at random by the
' offlcer In charge.
These men. having stacked tbeir own
rifles, nre led to where twelve otber
] ritles nre nwniting tliem. six of which
are loaded with blank cartridges. One
j of these Is handed to eacb man, so
j thnt no one knows whether the rifle
j he holds contains a bullet or not. and
I none can say for certain that the shot
j fired  by  him  killed tlie prisoner.     The
firing  party  then   marches  to  an  ap
pointed position     The commands "Pre

Billie, who Is seen enjoying a game
of tennis In bis own particular fash-
Ion, Is owned by nn English army officer who Is a member of tbe Fortress
Green Tennis club of England. Billie
Is a wire haired fox terrier nud Is a
tennis enthusiast. He Is so well trained that he never crosses a court during
play. It is only at the close of a game
tbat be appeals In true dog fashion
for a partner. Tben he la all life and
can catch a ball no matter bow swiftly
It ts butted to blm.
Blllie's chief duty, however, Is to retrieve bails lost over the walls among
the borders. He can distinguish perfectly the Fortress club balls from
those of otber clubs. It Is wild of Hit-
lie tbut he bns lieen known to sit for
hours wn telling a ball lodged In a tree,
waiting, tbe club members assert, for
tbe law of gravity to operate.

pleased wtth the Idea.    He hnd lieea I
a  poker   player ln   bis  time, nml   ny
playing witb bim for n small stake  I
got  through  many   hours that  wonld
otherwise have beon a burden.    Nevertheless   playing   penny   ante   with   a
broken down old man hour ufter hour
was not to me a pleasing way of spending my time, uud when my uncle proposed to raise tbc stake to 5 cents 1
acquiesced.
Tbls was a mistake. He wns a natural gambler, aud it was a knowledge
of this fact���a fear that be would lose
what he bad made iu tbe stock market���that led bim to quit "the street."
Since then his passion for gn milling
bad inln dormant It was now excited Btiew. He kept raising tlie slake,
and I did not dare to oppo��s him.
When be got the vulue of a chip up to
25 cents I began to be troubled. However. I hoped that by refusing to win
1 might keep out of trouble, for I realized that to wtu any considerable
amount from him would irritate Inui,
and in hls broken condition I feared tie
might break with me.
One ufternoon when he wns more j
fretful than usual 1 got out the Cards
and lbe chips. During thc sitting lhere
occurred one of those marvelous runs
of luik b.v which players ure enabled
to break banks. A Jack pot had liOCU
growing on the table for some time
wbeu 1 was deult three queens and
drew a fourth. I would have bet a
small sum. but since the curds must
be show ii 1 feared to Irritate my uncle
by appearing to favor blm. At tbe
showdown lie had a full of aces, which
gave mo the pot.
Kroni thnt time the devil seemed to
be tu the cards. Whenever I dealt 1
guve myself large bands nud lu variably guve my uncle bunds but a little
below mine. When I Iind a straight
flush be would bure a full; wben 1 bad
three aces he would have three iowct
cards. Terrified. 1 attempted to deal
blm a band larger lhan mine. He
caught me iu tbe act
For some time I hnd seen b.v his expression that be suspected 1 was intentionally dealing to myself large
bands uud to blm bands but little
smaller to draw bim on. When ba
caught me trying to deal blm a winner be fell back on tbe pillows behind
blm and pointed to the door. In vain
1 endeavored to explain. Ile continued to pol it to the door, and 1 left
hoping wben be bad cooled to renew
my efforts to disabuse bis mind of his
Impression. He sent word for me to
leave tbe bouse and never enter It
again.
The next day be changed bis will,
leaving his fortune to charities, and S
further result of the episode waa bl*
death a few days later.

Anecdote of Leasing.
Ahsentml:n!e mess has been tri*-
quently a characteristic of men of
fame. It Is to be supposed, no doubt,
that their minds have been so wholly
absorbed by great mutters that the
smaller, more trivial tilings of life bnve
been considered unworthy of their attention. Among n...i of this slump
wlio liave suffered lir this way was
l.esslng. a famous (iertnan writer of
plays and books of criticism. Lesslng
discovered nt one period nt his life that
be wus being robbed of his ready
money by some person In his Home,
aud. unable lo determine who the culprit was. he put the servants nt hls
household to a test by leaving a handful of gold upon his breakfast table
one morning.
Meeting a friend, be told him what
ue had done.
"That was risky," snld his friend.
"How much did you leave there?"
"Hour me;" cried Leasing. "I quite
forgot to count"

Here are llie proper words lo use In
describing tlie different sounds made
b.v various living creatures:

key brays, the dove e<>os. tlie duck
quacks, the elephant trumpets, the frog

Which Was Kept.
There were two little kittens, a black end
a gray.
And grandmamma said, with a frown:
���It will never do to keep them both:
The black one we'd better drown.

"One kitten's enouah to keep.
Now run to nurse, for It's growing tste
And time you were fast asleep."
The morning dawned, and rosy and swoet
Came little Bess from her nap.
The nurse said. "Go into mamma's roon.
And look in grandma's lap."
"Come here." said grandma, wtth a smtle,
Krom the rocking chair where she sat
"God has sent you Cvo littlo sisters.
Now, what do you think of that?"

LAY;NG THE STEEL.
Railroad Build...* Ars Awaking Echoe*
In Silsnt North.
Twenty thousand men are : t work
on the new railroad grade- of the two
westernmost provinces. The coast sec-
tion of the transcontinental Grand
Trunk Pacific takes the largest nuui-
lier of these, on construction work
west of the mountains; but. the shovels are busy, too, in Alberta, where
soil that last year produced oat.-, and
potatoes, or has been unfilled since
Creation Day, is being thrown up into near-straight lines that are eloquent of promise.
It is going to be a J?uay Bummer in
the railway camps of central Alberta.
Some six hundred miles of steel, mostly in the central and northern part*
of the province are to be laid before
too snow comes again, but the graders will cover a larger mileage even
than thip. They began early, and a
nt of virgin soil will be shifted dur
ng the coming season. The net result
if their labor will be seen in long,
flat-topped mounds, crossing farms
und one-time Indian roving grounds
,.i a way that was never known beiore.
Now is the time, between tbe first
projecting of the roads and the actuu.
running of the trains, that the human
.nterest of western railroading best
bhowi itself. Many prairie towns are
familiar with the outfitting and departure of construction crews that I*iL
���he trail in this direction and thut.
These interesting cavalcades are ma-n
up of men, beasts and iinplement.-
inut alike ure built for hard weai
and long endurance. Tliey do not ti
.���>ii well Into tiie aspect of city street.-.
but whi-n they gei into th.e open and
.wing their crooks 1 way along the
trail* to the s;te of their first camp,
or when thfty move from one camp tu
another, they seem very rightly und
appropriately to bs part and parcel of
the country. In the evolution of the
railroad they are the clumsy '. ut necessary forerunners of tl.e gay steam
trains and  fust expresses.
A construction camp is, in its out-
wurd look, something like a county
.a.r and a circus cdmbir.ed. Its canvas tei.ts shows up strongly aga:nst
the (reens and blacks around them
and the general hit-and miss plan ol
th.-ir layout i.s rather pleasing. Ther.
,n nothing stiff about them, nothing
conventional, yet always enough o
method to ensure quick service and
reasonable Comfort. The railway
camps in central Alberta are better
than many, 'ihey are rough, to be
sure, but lbe character of the country
makes it possible to introduce lar
ni-re of the picnic feature into tlie
camp life along the grade than can
l>e done either on the plains or in tin
mountains, The gradrri, who this
summer will be working loutli tuwaru
Calgary, or north into the Peace Kiver couiltry, will hr.ve a glorious out-
uour life to live, and their nights wil
be full of good air and sound sleep.
The men who make the grades am.
the men who follow them with th<
steel are a very mixed lot. They conn
fr< in everywhere, and they have al
kir.ds ot histc.ry behind tnein. Ai:
Oxford'graduate frequently handles a
shovel next In line with an unlettered
Immigrant from mid-Kurope, and th��
son of a titled family takes his chance
with an eater of garlic. But in camp
life, where nothing counts but work,
social levels are soon struck. Never
theless, the human interest and hu
man variety of these construction
camps are significant, and one cannot altogether forget that the big
noise that is being introduced into the
new and silent places of the north is,
in the last analysis, eloquent of man's
energy and persistence.

"Beverley House," Toronto, is to bt
torn down to make room for more
modern structures. Work of razing i<
will begin almost immediately, anu
in k short time one of Toronto's noted
land marks will be no more.
Since the old mansion was built In
1812 it has been practically the home
of the Robinson family, the first member of which to settle in Canada wa-
Christopher Robinson, a United Em-
pire Loyalist. Beverley House PS*
the home of his son, John Beverley
Robinson, who became chief justice
and a baronet. He had three suns.
Sir Lukin Robinson, bart.. Sir John
Beverley Robinson and Christopher
Robinson. The second son was mayor
of Toronto, was elected to Parliament
in 1858, and was president of the Mac
donald-Cartier administration in 1862.
The third son occupied the homestead
at the time of his death, and until a
over a year ago the property was in
the possession of his widow. From
1830 to 1840, Beverley House was the
residence of Poulett Thompson, Lord
8ydenham, governor of Upper Canada.
Discovered Senator Cox.
Perhaps oi-fle of the most interesting incidents in the career of the late
H. P. Dwight, president of the G.N.W.
Telegraph Co., is that he discovered
Senator George A. Cox. When he first
came to Canada as a telegraph operator and line-builder he went into the
little town of Colborne, on the Grand
Trunk, and vshile waiting for one uf
4iis poles to be put up, he went into
a little shoe store to have his shoe repaired. This story, iss.told by the
Senator himself.
While Mr. Dwight was talking' to
the shoemaker, he asked where he
could get a boy. The 8*nat( r, then
a lad ot eight or ten years, immediately volunteered his services, and
thus the Senator went into the service
of the old Montreal Telegraph Co.,
and, while in it ior many years, became an expert operator and is so today. Mr. Cox was long an a^ent of
the telegraph company.      ,
