Tub Prospector is in receipt of a copy
of the puhlic account- for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1900. Although figures
and statistics are essentially things of
dry order, there aro some interesting
points to be noted. A great deal more
money was spent than the estimates
called for, hut as it was election year,
the unusual magnanimity of the Government is easily accounted for. The
amount expended on roads and hridgca
waa (323,328, an advance of $55,000 on
the estimate. On education $28(1,319
was spent about $20,000 more than the
eitimale. l'nlilic institutions cost the
province $111,336. These incluJe grants
to hospitals, the museum, the printing
uffice, which has uot yet paid for itself
and other public concerns. The miscellaneous item amounted (o $118,00;
revenue service as travelling expenses
and CnurtBof Appeal to $11,570; legislation, including sessional allowances,
registration of voters, election expenses
$47,993; admistration of justice, other
than salaries, $96,000; ealarieB alone,
$M9.073; civil government salaries for
mining recorders, assessors collectors,
etc., $172,577; hospitals and chanties,
$53,395; public debt, the largest item of
all, including (inking fund, interest,
redemption of debentures, etc., $472,-
955. Looking at tho receipts, the revenue from Chinese restriction was
$53,000 while only $25,000 was expected.
On lhe other haLd $60,000 was expected
from the minora! tax but only $.30,000
received ; mining receipts iu general fell
short of tho estimates. For the whole
year there is a email balance on tl.e
arong side of the account.
The episode of Mrs. Carrie Nation
would tend to give one a rather queer
idea of the state of things on the other
side of the line. It would certainly be
an odd thing for a Canadian woman to
start on a property-wrecking tour and il
she did it once it is quite cafe to say
that would be the the sum total of her
adventures in that line, But the permitting of a woman, crazed with lhc de-
site for notoiiety to form a society composed of other fools liko herself, the
members of which swear by their hope
of Heaven to he ready at a h.ouient's
notice to wreck every saloon in Kansas,
is a disgrace to any country supposed to
he possessed of Anglo-Saxon institutions. Even though Kansas be a prohibition State, it is not fir private
individuals to take the law into
their own hands. If our fiiends
in the United States pass a prohibitory law and then allow saloons to
carry on an open sale of liquor, there is
something wrong somewhere and perhaps freaks like Mrs. Nation are only
the natural outcome.
Turning to the ludicrous Bide of the
question, wo noticed the other day a
cartoon entitled 'If those saloon kee; ere
had only been ioxy'. The cartoon represents a burly saloon keeper with a
mouse trap in bis band and when Mrs.
Nation arrives he sets fee the mice
which instantly-put Mrs. Nation, holding up her skins in great alarm, to

Lindon, February 22.—The war office
has received the following from Lirtl
Kitchener: Klerksdorp, February 21.—
Methuen's force marched here, having
cleared the country through Wolmoran-
atadt. At Haartbeeefontein, 1400 Boers
under Generals de Villiers and Lienber-
bertg, opposed him. They held a strong
position obstinately, but were turned
out afier severe fighting, in which the
Yeomanry, the Victorian bushmen and
the Laucashires distinguished themselves. Our casualties were three officer! and 13 men killed and five officers
and 25 men wounded. The lloers left
18 men dead on the ground and sufferea
Johannesburg, February 21.—The
Boers destroyed a culvert between
Natalspruit and Klip river on the railroad just south of here at dawn to-day.
They captured a trainload of food stuffs
and after taking all they could conveniently carrv, set lire to the rest and disappeared over the veldt.
London, February 12.—Despatches to
the Daily Mail report a Johannesburg
rumor that commandant general Botha
is suing for peace. Lord Kitchener, it appears has issued instructions that no
goods of any description are to go forward hy the Delngoa Buy line until
further notice, with the exception of
urgent military and hospital supplies.
This order is supposed to indicate a big
move eastward.
Standerton, February 21.—A deserter
who has arrived here relates that commandant general Louis Botha nssembled
his men on February 2nd and addressed
them. He declared that they should
never surrender eo long aa there were
live hundred left, auding that ho would
always be ready to lead them. He reminded them that the American colonies fought for more than six years to
secure independence and appealed to
them to fight as long, or cyen longer if
necessary, until not a man was left.
Some of the burghers replied that they
did not see how they could fight much
longer as the British were destroying all
the cops and capturing all the cattle
and sheep, while the ammunition was
nearly exhausted, save about six rounds.
"When this is gone," they said, "where
shall wc get more?" General Botha replied that the Lord would provide lliem
witli the means of fighting.
London, Feb. 24.—The Weekly Dispatch says it learns on good authority
that a special cabinet council was held
yesterday to consider a communication
from Lord Kitchener, to the effect that
Gen. liutlia had sent an emissary admitting that be was out-manoeuvred, and
asking for a meeting w ith a view of arranging a general surrender.
The position of Dewet as a frec-booter
was a matter of consideration.
Lird Kitchener wired lor clear instructions respecting the terms of settlement.
Lord Kitchener sent Gen. Botha's
offer bacK, fixing 2 o'clock on Wednesday for the meeting.
Meanwhile tho British commander is
completing operations by which he
hopes to catch Dewet.

Montreal, Feb. 19.—The "Montreal
"Star's" cable from Loudon sayB:
London htiB rarely witnessed a scene
ol patriotic enthusiasm that equalled today's luncheon given by Lord Strathcona. at the Kensington Palace lintel,
to Colonel Steele and the officers and
men of the Strathcona's llorBe,
Owine to the National mourning, the
gatheiing was of a semi-private character, but, among Lord Slrathcona's personal fiiends present, were Lord Dun-
.UiiiiiI.), under whose command the
Sirathconas fought; Mr. William St.
John Brodick, Secretary for War; Lirel
Aberdeen. Lord Grey, Lord Derby, Lord
Stanley, and other prominent Englishmen. Lord Dundonald's speech, recording tlie deeds of the Strathcona's
Horse, rouaed the gathering to the
highest pitch of enthusiasm. Lord
Strathcona received volley after volley
of cheers froun the officers and men of
Strathcona's Horse, but the wildest
[ cheering waa reserved for General Buller, who unquestionably lemnina the
hero of the lighting Canadian?. "We
are," said Colonel Steele, amid vociferous cheers, ''going back to Canada lo
settle up our little affairs tin re. When
we have done that, we aro ready to gn
back to South Africa to fight for the
Empire." ,.

San Francisco, Feb. 22. —The steamer City
of Rio-De- Jani.ro, Captain Ward, from the
Orient and Honolulu, struck on a rock*early
to-day just oVtside the Golden Gate, and sank
in twenty minutes.
A large number of persons were drowned.
The steamer was lying off the heads all
night, an unually heavy fog preventing her
from entering the harbor. At 5 o'clock* t liis
morning, she weighed anchor and headed for
the city, in charge of Pilot Frank Jnrdon.
Shortly aftcwards the vessel struck a hidden
rock, and Pilot Jordan chontcd for all on
board to take to the boats.
The wildest confusion prevailed, as tlie
passengers and crew scrambled for the boats.
In the endeavor to escape from the rapidly-
sinking vessel many jumped overboard.
Captain Ward ordered several of the boats
alongside and the ladies of the cabin antl some
of the male passengers were placed in them.
The boats were then manned by part oi the
crew and headed citywards.
So far as known but three of thc ship's
boats left the vessel.
On board the Rio were twenty-nine cabin
passengers, one hundred and thirty in the
steerage, and ono bundled and forty in the
Tugs and other small boats quickly put out
from tlie city for the scene of disaster, and already they are arriving back with large numbers of the rescued.
There is an unverified rumor lo thc effect
that Consul Wildman, of Hongkong, and his
son were among those drowned.
Canadian forc.s>re>t being overlooked, it
is hoped that a permanent supply of Canadians for waging Creat Uritain's wars will
eventually be secured;
Strike at Van AntJ-
Word was received ii he city to-day of a
serious state of affairs at Van An.U. It was
learned that sixty Japanese were sent up a
few days ago to work in the Cornell nunc.
When they learned of the condition of affairs
most of them refused to work, but two were
willing to work on machines with white men.
The white men refused to work with Japs and
went out and the remainder following a strike
is practically on.
At the Copper Queen thc pumps alone are
working to keep the mine clear of water and
the smelter ss practically shut down.—Province.

joint-wreckers of Kansas has gained more
notoriety in the past few weeks than any
other individual in America, i.s io enter politics and also to become the editor of the
Smashers' Mail, a paper to bo run in the
interest of the negroes. She has refused
tempting offers to lecture, and will remain in*
Topeka to help elect '*a clean man for mayor

The very eoM weather prevailing for
some lime past lias entirely prevented
any work being done towards getting
lhe Toronto-Lillooet Gold K-efs Company's quartz mfll in shape for running.
But Supt. Rives hopes that ho can have
every thing arranged so that the mill
can be started up on 3rd March.
Victoria, February 21.—Tho second session
of the ninth parliament opened to-day amid
unusual splendor. The Fifth regiment furnished a guard of honor with the returned
South African volunteers. The lieutenant-
governor was attended by army and navy
officers, After suitable reference to the death
of the ijueen, the speech from the throne
promised that the services of the South African
volunteers would be recognized by a free
grant of land. An amendment to the Scott
Act was slated. Incouragcnient to the pulp I
industry and lower rates on diary and agricultural products lo mining districts were promised. On the railway question the following
paragraph occurred: "A measure will lie introduced with a view of aiding ia the construction of a railway from the boundary
Creek district to the Coast; of a railway to
the northern end of Vancouver Island, and
of a railway in Canadian territory from the
Coast to the northern boundary of the province." Amendments to the Mineral Act were
promised of a nature unknown.
The appointment of a mining commission
was deemed inexpedient until the Dominion
commission was appointed. The report of
Dunsmuir's and Eberls1 Ottawa visit is promised soon. Estimates are promised in a few-
Turner presented public accounts for the
year ending June 30, 1900. The receipts
were $1,544,108; expenditures $1,947,412.
Of the expenditures $: 16.206 was devoted to
a sinking fund. Eberts introduced a bill fur
the relief of Pheonix, granting the city increased borrowing power.
An adjournment was moved till Monday lo

London, Feb. 23.—Mr. Brodick, the sec.
retary for war, and Mr. Chamberlain, the
colonial secretary, are trying to arrange with
the Canadian government for the establishment in Canada of permanent recruiting depots for the British army, in order to prevent lhe political feeling which such s'eps
might en_endei in the Dominion, it has been
suggested that a new Canadian regiment

A. W. Smith, M.P.P. for Lillooet,
whose well known face bus been teen in
every legislature for the past score of
years, was again at bis post on Thursday afternoon though his name was
omitted from the Colonist's report. A
Colonist representative bad a few minutes talk with Mr. Smith, in the course
"f which he expressed his satisfaction
wiib the progress being made and tho
prospects in his constituency. Last season was a prosperous one for tbe farmers of lhat district, their crops were
abundant anil of good quality, and tbey
realized fair prices for their products.
The mining industry is in a decidedly
satisfactory condition. A great deal of
prospecting is being done and new and
rich finds are constantly reported in
various parts of the district. The company operating tbe Lorne and Wood-
cbuck groups in Cadwallader creek, a
branch of the Bridge Kiver, is putting
in a fiw-slamp mill for tbo purpose of
still further proving tbe p'operlie?.
List season the ore whs enisled with an
arrastrn, and gave splendid results, at
least f8,000 in go'd being recovered by
this primitive method, These proper-
tics are bonded for $230,000, a good sum
in cash having been paid down, and tho
manager Mr. Leslie Hill, is determined
to exploit thc properly aa thoroughly as

that tbe government is doing its utinott

d'lir is progressing favor.-.bly, but better
roads aro needed. A company is putting 111 a hydraulic plant on Bridge

has done a lot of sluicing near Lillooet,
preparatory to installing a large hydraulic plant. Tiiis company holds 14 or 15

Thc summer was at Autrust,
The Bc-a waa in a lull
From sdtuate to Gurnet,
From Mohammed to Hull.
It was a tranquil hour
Of earth*, expectancy
When we lav on the wishing uncle
Beside the sleeping sea.
We saw the scarlet moon rise
And light the pale gny land;
We heard tiie whisper of the tide,
The sighing of the send.
I felt the ardent Sutter
Your heart gave for delight;
You knew how tarlli is glad and hushed
Under the tent at nirht.
Wc dreamed the drea.    of lovers
And told our dream to none,
And all that we desired came true,
Because we wished us one.

Tbe Bev. George Peters of the First
Presbyterian gnurcb. of Iloiiiorville was
a young man of nbout 25. It wns his
lirst call, but It wns agreed that bis
sermons were the best ever delivered
before that congregation. He was ulso
popular In a social way, and, taken ull
around, be bad a standing that few
young ministers could boast of. When
lie bud been In Ilomervllle six months,
he bud made just two enemies. These
wore nn old maid named Angelina Harris and ber father. Neither was an open
enoiny. but Angelina wns piqued and
provoked and somewhat Imbittered because tbe minister bud kept clear of
the matrimonial net she would havo
thrown about him. She would have
been willing to make a match of It
with almost any one, but it was too
ambition of ber soul lo marry a clergyman. She struck the young reverend's
trail at un early date, and she followed
It with ardor und persistency until be
was obliged to give her the cold snub.
As she was one of his flock, and as her
father was a would be pillar of the
church, the snub wasn't ice cold or full
of carpet tucks, but he made bis meaning plain nevertheless.
Krom that hour Angelina Harris had
It In mind to do that good man up. She
didn't give her hand away by throwing
out little slurs aud innuendoes, because
she would have found no one to listen
to her, but she set herself to watch and
bide her time. He who watches and
bides finds un opening sooner or later.
As Angelina was keeping tab ou current events a widow named Moreland
moved to Honiervllle from Chicago.
She waa young, rich, vivacious and
took ber place nt the bend of society
at once. She occupied n house exactly
opposite the one in which the minister
lodged, and It wus also next door on
tbe left to that occupied by Mr. Harris. She hadn't got settled yet when
Angelina made up ber mind that her
cue was to watch for something between the new arrival und the minister. She sized the widow up for a flirt,
and, though she hnd never seen the
Hev. Peters Indulge In anything of the
kind, there was no telling what he
might do If coaxed on by a designing
A couple of weeks bad passed when
one hot afternoon the Chicago widow
sat down at an open window to read
and fan herself. She hadn't been there
ten minutes when the Bev. Peters sat
dowu at ono of his second story windows to do the same thing. Tbe widow didn't see him, ni_l he didn't see
the widow, but Angelina saw them
both. She saw the widow's fan waved
In a wny that said, "Clad to see you,"
and the reply was waved back, "Many
thanks." Then the widow's fan began
nn outrageous flirtation, uud the minister's fan kept company with it, and
even when she waved that she thought
she could love lilm for himself alone he
wasu't driven off the Held. The snubbed girl had watched nud bided, and In
a day or two a social thunderclap shook
the tow.
The father of Angelina, would be
pillar, etc., had not found the Rev.
Peters as clay In his bauds, ns he had
hoped for, and his effort to run
things connected with the church to
suit bis own Ideas bad not proved successful. He had put up with defeat
ns meekly ns possible, but, like Angelina, he wus ou tho watch nnd tbe
bide. That his only child and favorite
daughter should have fulled to make
n sentimental Impression was another
iborn In his side, nncl n smile of satisfaction lighted his face as she called
lilm to witness the last five minutes of
the flirtation. With his own eyes he
saw those fans working as If driven
by steam power. He wasn't a ninn to
stand anything of that sort even if he
hadn't had n grievance. He drew the
line at a minister riding the bike or
playing croquet and thought he was
overllbcrnl at that. Within n day be
nnd Angelina bad taken care that about
BO different members of Ihe church had
been posted on the flirtation. It Is
needless to say that people wore flum-
founded and that the Rev. Peters wabbled about and almost fell dowu In a
faint when be heard Ihe gossip. As
for tbe Widow Morelnnd, she was more
1ban nstonlshed, but of course she hnd
to giggle over It. When the ciders of
Iho church doubted the sanity of Angelina's father In spreading such a
yarn, be vigorously replied:
"I'll show you whether I'm oraay or
not! Call a me.etlug of the vestry, and
I wilt be there to make my statement
nnd prove It! When I see a flirtation
with my own eyes. I guess I know It
from n load of coal!"
A meeting of the elders wns called.
It hnd to be. The minister wanted it
ss well as Mr. Han-la. When all was
ready to tnke up the charges, It was
Klder Spoouer who asked In bis slick,
suave way:
"Now, Brother Harris, how long
trtnee vou flirted with a woman'/"
"Never tn nil my life!" was the Indlg
i»»»t nusn-er.
"Then will you please tell us how
you kuew this was a flirtation?"
"Why—why, they were waving their
fans at each other."
"But we have seen plenty of fans
used In church. You don't mean to say
that flirtatious were being carried ou
during service, do you?"
"Of course not, but this was different.   She'd fan, and then he'd fan."
"And what did you understand the
motions of the fans to mean? Give us
t_e flirtation code."
"Do you mean lo Insult me?" roared
Brother Harris as his face got very
red. "1 don't know the code, as you
call It, but I do know that tbey were
talking by signals—that Is, Airge-
"Oh, It wa§ your daughter Angelina
who interpreted the signals to you. We
must have her here as a witness. I
don't think any one of us ever suspected Angelina of flirtations, but It seems
she must have had quite ft number to
be familiar with the code."
"Angelina shall uot come hero!" exclaimed the irate brother ns he realized that Ue hnd put his foot iu it.
"Aud bow dure you charge my daughter with flirting?"
"But If she hasn't flirted bow does
she know the code? Vou have made a
grave charge here, brother, und wo look
to see you support it. You say you saw
part of the tllrtatiou. Whnt did the
widow convey to the pastor by her
signals? Take this fun and show us
bow she used i!."
"1-1 ca*'t do It.   If Angelina was"—
"Oh, If Angelina was here she could,"
said Klder Bpooner us tbo other caught
himself. "Well, let in send for her, as
I suggested before."
"I'll never do it!"
"But the charge, brother—the charge.
Here Is a charge of flirtation against
our pastor. You made it, but you
haven't submitted one iota of proof
thus far. What are you going to do
about it?"
"Mebbe It wasn't exactly a flirta-
tlou," sullenly admitted the brother
after awhile.
Tbe Itev. Peters said he was using
the fan to drive away the flies aud
bring a breath of cool air as he read
over the sermon be was to preach ou
the following Sunday. He hud neither
noticed the widow nor Angelina nor
her father. The Widow Morelnnd had
insisted on being present. Yes, she
knew all about flirtations, but really
she hadn't the nerve to sit nt uu open
window uuder the eyes of her neighbors nnd attempt a tllrtatiou with n
clergyman and tbe pastor of lhe church
she was soon to be a member of. If
she used her fau languidly, It was to
drive away the droning house flies; if
briskly, It was to warn a darning needle or a beetle to keep a safe distance.
"Were I to flirt." added the widow-
as she shook out her fau and smiled

The Indian mother, when her baby

land, but she has a beautiful dream to
solace ber bereavement Tbo cruel
empty places which everywhere meet
the white mother's eye are unknown to
Iter, for to her tender fancy a little
spirit child fills them.
It Is not uncommon, snys the author
of "Little Folks of Many Lands," to
see In Mexico or in Canada n pair of
elaborate tiny moccasins nliovc a little
Indian grave. A mother's fingers have
made them, a mother's band bus bung
them there, to help a baby's feet over
the long, rough road that stretches between his father's wigwam and the
Great Chief's happy bunting grounds.
Indians believe that a baby's spirit
cannot reach the spirit land until the
child, If living, would bave been old
enough and strong enough to walk.
Dntll that time the little spirit hovers
about Its mother. And often It grows

A Gentle Hint.
A certain youthful billiard marker

thnt he would have to be more careful
in the matter of chalk.
"Can't help It, sir," replied the
marker. "I knows the gents wot pockets the chalk. But they're reg'lar customers, nnd you wouldn't like me to

"Well, no." was the reply, "but yon

the culprit and remarked:

There was a good deal of human nature about Romulus, and when ltmuo
grew aud they would go out every little
while before breakfast and annex a couu-

people called ou hiiu, they did not blow
doormat and familiarly slap him ou the

back, saying: "Hello, there, Uoniulus.
How uro you stacking up?" No; they
would tiuel him dressed in scarlet lii.n
Mophlstopheles and lying on a couch of
purple, smoklag a cob pipe, with a pitcher
of hard elder near at hand.
All at once, history tells us, Romulus
mysteriously disappeared. A good many
of tlio oldest inhabitants grieved over
him and wondered whore he "had went,"
which shows that lhc early Romans
neglected their grammar as well us their
Romulus hasn't been found to this day,

the man who wrote "Beautiful Snow" or
''Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight," hence
tbey do not blame him.
The army was called a legion aud was
armed with bows and arrows, stuffed
clubs, tin pans, brickbats nnd plug chewing tobacco.
For a year Rome was without a king,
anil the people became dissatisfied. They
were governed by lhe senate and said
they had 100 kings instead of one. They
couldn't go outside of their own yard
without keeping .their hands on their
pocket books. They agreed that the Romans should choose a king, but that he
should be a Sahine.
Muua Poinpilius wns the uominee, nnd
his followers claimed Unit he knew it all.
Everybody who was opposed to Muna
was uot allowed to vole. He was a self
made man, and his pai-tisaus called him
"Honest Pomp." When the returns came
.n. it was found thai ho had carried every
precinct. Tlie fellows who got the reluctant voters to the polls immediately applied for tho postollices. and those who
got left immediately discovered what a
vile wretch Muna was and organized to
defeat biin.
A notiticntiou committee wns appointed, and the chairman wrote and committed to memory a long speech. He started
out by saying this was the most important campaign tlie country had seen since
the days of Andrew Jackson. That is
the same way notification speeches were
made 3,000 years later, Before he got
half way tbrouidi Muna nsked to be
spared and begged to be excused. He
said this honor was so sudden. Me told
them that if he had his fall work done he
might consider the election, hut he
couldn't afford to rent his farm to move
to town.
Tlio chairman of the committee had
another card up his sleeve. 11° began
bis speech all over again, and Muua
cried out: "For heaven's sake spare me!
I'll serve! Anything to escape another
speech!" After making suitable offerings to the gods, which consisted of six
kegs and a pony, all of which was consumed by the committee; he started for
Rome to assume the duties of oflice.
Muna gave them ceremonial laws of
religion und made the first homestead
The people went west to grow up with
the country and hold old settlers' reunions. He established line fences
through which the neighbors' calves
would break and make work for the lawyers for thousands of years.
He also established the first trade unions. He called them guilds. At the
sauio time the walking delegate was invented, and he has become a oermanent
fixture of our modem life. It made Muna
solid with tb" labor vote, and he held hi?
Office a long time. The ward heelers
who failed to gel olliees had a long, hungry wait.
The temple of Janus wns founded during his reign. It was open In time of
war and closed In time of peace. It was
open a Rood shnrcrof the time.
Muna believed in signR nnd visinns
and tokens and things. He consulted nn
old fortune teller. Kgerla. who directed
him iu liis affairs. Another nymph he
commended was Taeita. or Tlie Silent.
The campaign stump speakers thought
he was driving at lliem. and they deserted him in large numbers. Anything that

to them, nud he lost much support.—

about 14 inches loug by 10 inches wide—
nnd he even thumped over the nickel and
dime "libraries" with grent apparent interest. Tbe thickset proprietor of the
secondhand bookstall noticed lhe elderly,
distinguished looking mnn the other afternoon and strolled out to the pavement.
"(Y,ii'! find what you're looking for, eh,

Btnnd pleasantly.
The elderly, distinguished looking man
appeared to be somewhat embarrassed.
"N-no," he replied dillhlently, '*1 suppose I'm on a fruitless quest."
lie didn't nan: tl.e nature of the quest.
"Vou won't lind anything in Arabic in

tire proprietor of the stall experimentally.
"No?" snid the elderly, distinguished

"There used to be a Gibbon's 'Kiman

print years ago," remarked the proprietor
of tbe stall after a pause.
"That so?" said the stranger, "Don't
believe 1 ever saw thnt edition."
"We've got n whole lot of Omar Khay
yams in cheap cloth covers, though," pursued the bookstall man. scratching his
head in n puzzled sort of way and sizing
up the distinguished looking man out of
the tail of bis eye.
"V\*ell. 1 am not n devotee nt the Omar

over another heap of the elongated paper
Tbe proprietor of tbe stall walked away
a little distance and appeared to be thinking it o'er.
"You'll lind Hugo's 'History of a

man at the stall, "but there's hardly any
use in buying 'em in that form when I've

"I find Hugo hard reading," replied the
elderly man of distinguished appearance,
wiping his spectacles reflectively, "I
knocked off doing literary penance a long
while ago."
The proprietor scratched his head some
more. He looked like a man up against
it. Having a reputation to sustain, however, for shrewdness iu guessing his customers' literary tastes, be returned to tbe
charge nfter a silence.
"There's some of Goethe's and Schiller's stuff In those paper piles," be said,
"hut 1 got nil tbe .*hiller nnd Goethe you
want inside iu cloth for little or nothing."
"Ub-buh!" replied the distinguished
looking man, ugain removing his iron
rimmed spectncles and wiping them wish
a spotless handkerchief. "Glad to hear
that. However, I haven't much time to
solace myself with Goethe and Schiller.
Life's too short."
The bookstall proprietor walked out to
tbe curb and spat musingly.
"Fellow tbat looked pretty bard up

ptat!, "and sold me ten Volumes of the

"N-no," replied tbe elderly man. "We

"Well, he's on to whnt he's talking

"T'r'nps you prefer the older English

"Well, if 1 were marooned on a desert

Mow Sound  Is Matlineu  hv Material*
In Wall and Celling.
Professor W. C. Sabine several years
ago was requested by the corporation
of Harvard university to propose some
method for remedying the acoustical
defects of the lecture room of tbe
Fogg Art museum nt Cambridge. After
two years of experiment it was found
that the best result was obtained by
lining a considerable portion of tbe
walls of the room with thick felt, and
Ibis was permanently done. This work
led Professor Sabine to take up the
general question of architectural acoustics, aud lie now publishes the first of a
series of papers on this subject In a
recent number ot The American Architect. The various ways In which sound
is uiodllied by the walls and celllug of
a room are thus outlined by him:
Tho Ioud.ie.ss of the sound is, as a
rule, greater at a given distance from
the speaker than it is In tbe open air.
Tlie character or timbre of a complex
sound Is altered by re-enforcement of
certain of Its elementary tones, by resonance or by Interference of tbo
sound waves produced in certain portions of the room. This alteration of
timbre Professor Sabine calls di-
tortiosn. Sound persists in a room for
a considerable time after its utterance.
This Is due to Its reflection and re-
reliectlon from the walls, floor and
ceiling. This persistence Is called
reverberation. Professor Sabine found
that the note of a particular organ

Fogg museum lecture room 5.0 seconds
after the blowing of the pipe ceased.
This reverberation causes the successive sounds In articulate speech to
overlap nud become confused.
The simple question of loudness Is
only of importance In very large audience rooms. Reverberation Is the
usual cause for defective acoustics In
large halls. Heavily draped walls absorb much and reflect little of the
sound, aud hence a sound dies out almost Immediately in such a room nnd
reverberation is largely prevented. An
audience also absorbs a large portion
of the sound in a room aud greatly reduces reverberation.
Professor Sabine has determined the
absorbing power of a variety of wall
surfaces, such as brick, plaster ou
brick, plaster on lath, glass und boards,
and he shou-s that the reverberation of
a room, and hence to n larger extent
Its acoustical quality, can be predicted
by n siiuly of Its dinieusious and Ihe
character  of  Its   walls.

There are farmers In western Nebraska who have made hundreds of
dollars each fall linllug and selling for

few years ago regarded as a menace to
western agriculture. These ure not Isolated exceptions either. Tbo thistle
abounds through the western counties

thistle Is n fine substitute. Again, the
common "tumble weed" Is baled for
fuel. It resembles the Russian thistle
with the exception of the thorns, and Is,
even more prolific, In tho fall of the'
year It assumes a ball-like shape and'
in tlie first winter wind breaks its frail
stem nnd sends the fluffy roll of dry

fact Its name, "tuiiibleweed," Is de

How a Popular School T< uHn-r Suffered
—And How, AfiiiiK ou tt Friend's Advice, She Tried l>r. William's Pink
1'llU nnd  Wit-  It. slot etl  to Health and
"About the most thorough and
popular teacher we have ever had
here," is the opinion expressed by the
people of Canaan, N.S., of their present young lady school teacher, Miss
Nellie Cutteu. MUs Cutten is possessed of keen intelligence and engaging
milliners, and has been peculiarly successful in her chosen profession. At
present she looks the picture of
health, and one observing her good
color and buoyant spirits, would
never think of associating her with
sickness. It was, however, only last/
autumn that she was almost hopeless
of continuing in her work on account
of her ill-health, and her condition
was a source of alarm to her friends.
"Yes," she said to an Acadian reporter who clled upon her recently
to learn the particulars of her case,
"I suppose it is a duty f owe to Dr,
Williams' Pink Tills that I should
make public the wonders they worked for me, but perhaps I would not
have thought of it if you had not
"You see, in addition to my teaching, I have been studying very hard
over my 'B' work, and then I was
attacked with whooping cough which
did not leave me for a long time, and
so I became pretty well run down. I
was always considered the embodiment of health at home, but last
autumn I wus really alarmed over
my condition. Sometimes in the
schoolroom 1 would be seized with
dizziness, and often I would faint
away. I would take vomiting turns
also, and had a feeling of nausea
and langour all the time. I lost my
color and became thin and pale, and
it seemed as if my blood had turned
to water.
"This condition of things was so
different from anything which I had
previously experienced that I sought
medical advice at once. I was informed that 1 was suffering from
anaemia, and I at once put myself under medical treatment. But although
I tried several bottles of prescriptions, my condition seemed to be getting worse nil the time. When I
went home for my Chris I mas vacation, I was almost in despair. It
waa while I wns at home, however,
that my friends advised mo to use
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Acting upon their advise I took up their use.
The first box made its effect felt, but
I used four or live, and then the cure
was complete. Ever since then my
health has been excellent and I have
felt my real old time self, and am
able to attend to my duties, which
are by no means light, without the
fat tguo and langour that made tho
work irksome. You may depend upon it I will always have a friendly
word lo say for Dr. Williams' Pink

society are too easily seen and too sad
to write much about, so I will give

had been In my seat a short, time, n

occupied the two sents on my left, and
a few moments later the woman from
whom he had been divorced and who
had also remarried enme In with her
new husband and sat directly on my
right. Whether the ticket agent arranged this for a juke 1 am not prepared to say, but till went well until I
grew tired of the game and got tip,
leaving tho four in a Straight row,
which made un Interesting picture for
a few moments. The four soon realized, however, whal people were staring
and smiling at, and. looking daggers
at one auother, Immediately rose and
