[IAL   CHARACTERISTICS   OF   THE
lOPLE NCW WORLD FOREMOST.
povared by Julius a«s»r, Britain Ka-
it_lii*ri a Uuiuhii 1'i.vince lor Tlirae
Dauturiei, and in tha Aftertima IU
I'eopla Kaeall tha Tanpur and tlia
iniplre of Home—Thair  l'utliei land.
.■itain was   first made known   to
$j civilized    world  by  the   famous
inan general, Julius Caesar, in tho
|.r  55   before   the   birth  of  Chi ist.
|Jsar had conquered Haul, a coun-
S which included our present Urunce
|l  Belgium,  and   brought  it  under
rule of Home; but in the   course
fhis conquest he learned that   to
west of Uaul lay an island nam-
I Britain, whose peoples were main-
j of the same race with thc Uauls
3d gave them help  in their strug-
■s against the Roman armies.   He
(solved,   therefore,     to  invade    Bri-
j.n,   and  in  two successive .descent-
landed on its shores,  defeated the
futons,  and penetrated at last   be-
fjnd  the Thames;   No event in his-
J>ry    is more   memorable than this
hiding of Caesar.     In it the great-
lit  man  of  the     Roman race  made
tlown   to the    world a land whose
bople in the after-time wire to   refill, both in their temper and in the
heath of their rule, the temper ani
Empire  of  Home.     Caesar,   however,
■ as recalled from Britain by risings in
Tiaul; und lor a hundred years   more
he islund remained unconquered.   It
r:as not till the time of the Enip.iv-
|>r   Claudius  that  its  conquest    was
Itgain undertaken,   and a  war whirl.
|mly ended under the Emperor Domi-
]ian at  last  brought all  the so'ith.
iern part of the island under the rule
Jof  Homo.   Britain   remained  a   province of the Human Empire for n oi'n
,ihan    three    hundred years.    During
"Ithis time its tribes  were reduced   lo
; order,  the land  was rivili/.ed,  towns
% were built,  roads made from one end
| of the island to the other, mines wero,
• opened,   and  London   grew  into  one
* of the great ports of the world.
| Uut much oppression was mingled
f with    this   work  of    progress,     and
throughout    these  centuries the pro-
I Vlnce was wasted from time to time
\ by    inroads of   tho unconquered Brill ons    of    the   North,    whose  attacks
/ grew more formidable as Home grew
:; weaker in her    struggle against   the
' barbarians    who besot her on   every
border.   At last the Empire was forced to withdraw its troops from Britain,   and  to   leave    tho  province   to
defend itself against its foes.    To aid
|in doing this,  the Britons called   in
bands of soldiers from Northern Germany,   who    gradually   grew   into    a i
■host of invaders, und became in turn '.
■ia danger to the island.   These   were
the lirst Englishmen who set foot in
Britain     The characteristics of these
[remarkable men    are  thus described
'by John  Hichard  Green  in his  famous   "Short  History  of  the  English
people."
Por the Fatherland of thc English
.race we mtist    look far away    from
England  itself.   In  the  filth century
after tho    birth  of  Christ  the     one
-country    which    we    know  to  have
.borne the   name  of  Angelin ur  England lay within the district  which is
now  called    Sloswick,   a dist t'lct     in
the heart of the peninsula that parts
the Baltic    from  the   northern  seas,
tits  pleasant  pastures,   its  black-timbered   homesteads,    its    prim     liltle
townships looking down on inlets of
purple water, wore  then but a wild
waste  of     heather    and    sund,     girt.
Along the coast  with a sunless wot.d-
'land,  broken  here and there b.v mcu-
'dows that crept down to the marshes and the sea.    Tho dwellers iu this
^district,  however,  seem to  ha\e been j
,.../,..,. i.t     ..-    -*..i.,i,._.    fragment     of
-   .........       au    uu> ■_,..„      .....
what was called the Bugle or English folk, the bulk of whom lay
probably in what is now Tower Hanover and Oldenburg. On one side of
them the Saxons 01 Westphalia held
the land from the Wcser to the
Rhine; on thc other the Eastphaliun
Saxons stretched away to the Elbe.
North again of the fragment of the
English folk in Slcswick lay anchor1 kindred tribe, the Jutes, whose
name is still preserved in their district of Jutland. Engle, Saxon, and
Jute all belonged to the same Low-
German branch of the Teutonic lam-
ily, and at the moment when history
discoveres them they were being
drawn tog-ether by the ties of a common blood, common speech, conn, on
social und politicul institutions.
There is little ground, indeed, for
believing that the three tribes looked on themselves as one people, or
that wo can as yet apply to them,
save by anticipation, the common
name of Englishmen. But each o,
them was destined to share in thu
conquest of the land in which wo
live; and it is from tho union of ail
o_~-thcm when its conquest was complete that the English people has
sprung.
The tnergy  of these peoples    foi.nd
vent in a    restlessness which   drove
them to take part in the gi n ial attack of the German rate on the Empire of Home.   For busy tillers   a: d
busy Ushers as Englishmen were, they
were at     heart    lighters,     and  their
world was world of war.    Tribe wu -
red with tribe,  and village with village;  even  within  the  township    it-
solf    feuds     parted     household    from
household, and passions of hatred and
vengeance were handed on from father to son.      Their mood  wus,   abo.e
all, a mood of    lighting    men,  vtn-
tureBome,   self-reliant,   proud,   with  a
dash of hardness    and cruelty in it.
but ennobled    by the virtues   which
spring from  war,  by  personal courage and loyalty to plighted word, by
a  high  and   stern  sense  of  manhood
and the worth of man.   A grim joy
in hard    lighting was already characteristic of this race.   War was the
Englishman's       "shield-play"       and
"sword-game" ;  the gleeman's verse.
took fresh lire as he sang of the rush
of    the  host     and  the   crash of  its
shield-line.     Their    arms     and  weapons,    helmet   and    mailshirt,    tall
spear and  pavolln,  sword  and  seax,
the short broad dagger that hung at
each  warrior's   girdle,   gathered     to
in«n_   much of tho    lesrend and    the
art which gave color and poetry to
tho  life of Englishmen.    Each sword
had    its name    like a living thing.
And  next  to their lovo of war came
their lovo af   the sea.     Everywhere
throughout       Beowulf's     song,     as
everywhere  throughout   the   liie  that
it. pictures, we catch thc salt whill of
the   sea.      Tho Englishman   was  as
proud of his sea-craft as of his war-
craft; sword in teeth, he plunged into
the sea to meet walrus and sea-lion;
he told of his whale-chase amidst th •
icy waters of the North.    Hurdly less
than  his    love for the    sea was  the
love he  bore to  the ship that traversed it.   In   the fond playfulness     of
English   verse   tho   ship   was   "the
wuve-floater,"     the    "foam-necked,"
"like  u    bird"   as  it  skimmed     the
wave-crest,    "like   a swan,"  as     its
curved    prow   breasted   the   "swan-
road" of  the sea.
Their passion for the sea marked
out I'or them their part in the general movement of thc German nations. While Goth und Lombard
were slowly advancing over mountain and plain lhe boats of the Englishmen pushed faster over the sen.
Bands of English rovers, outdriven
b.v stress of light, hud long found a
home there, nnd lived as they could
by sack of vessel or coast, t'hunce
has preserved for us in Slcswick peat
bog ono of tho war keels of these early
pirates. The boat is tlat-boltomcd,
seventy feet long, and eight or nine
feet wide, its sides of oak boards
fastened with bark ropes and iron
bolts. Fifty oars dro\ e it over the
Waves with a freight of warriors
whose arms, axes, swords, lances and
knives were found heaped together in
its hold. Like the galleys of the
Middle Ages, such boats could only
creep cautiously along from
harbor to harbor in rough
weather, but in smooth water
their swiftness fitted them admirably for the piracy by which the
men of these tribes wire already
making themselves dreaded. Its llai
bottom enabled them to beach the
vessel on any fitting coast, and step
on shore at once transformed the
boatmen into a, war band. From
the fiist the daring English race
broke out in the secrecy and suddenness of the pirates' swoop, in the
fierceness of their onset, in the careless glee with which they seized
either sword or oar. "P*oes are
they," sang a Roman poet of the
time, "fierce beyonr| their foes, and
sunning as they are fierce; the sea
is their school of w*ar and the storm
their friend; they are sea-wolves that
prey on  the  pillage of the  world."

The tendency among English people
to clip long wo ds into short, oiks
or even into monosyllables is notorious. Thus "cabriolet" has become
cab, "omnibus" bus and so on. But
the change of "zoological" into zoo,
is, to any one who knows the origin
of the word, the most exasperating
of all, and yet we now meet with
zoo in well written journals.
There is another variation, which
comes simply from bad pronunciation, as when a cockney holiday
maker tells you he has been to the
".logical." If "zoological" is to undergo a shortening lil-e that Which
hus befallen "omnibus" and "cabriolet" let it at least become zo. This
would be correct us far os it went
and would not be to excruciating as
the detestable zoo. — Notes and

morrow  we die.'    .    .    .    An Imperial
policy is based upon the fact that it
is thu interest of the Empire that it
should be adopted;  that the     United
Kingdom will secure a fresh leuse    of
life     for     those     economic     energies
which  otherwise  in no  very    distunt
future     must   decay;   and     that     the

that   the  present   nrrungement     with
Canada,  if mado permanent,  and unaccompanied  with a change    on     our
pari,     must   lie  unsatisfactory     from

When Lord Roberts was in India, a
complaint once reached him of the
quality of the beer served out from
a particular regimental canteen, an.l
he resolved to look personally into
thc matter. He singled out a so.U-
ior of small stature, and as! ed him
for his uniform. This astonish,ng
order naturally paralyzed the sma I
"Tommy," but he obediently made a
parcel of his uniform and left it in
the chief's room. Later in the day
the private soldier's uniform issued
from the quarters with the Coiii-
ander-in-L'hief himself inside, his
face a little disguised; and as a
humble item in his army, thc chief
entered the canteen, taking a seat
on a form. "Mow's the beer now?"
he askid. "Boer!" remarked a disgusted comrade. "Call this beer?
Why, it's morn arf water!" 'lhe
Chief called for a pot, and he found
it was more than half water. rili.
next day the same neat, wiry liguro
crossed the square, this time in the
full uniform of his position, and another order for a mug of ale was
given to the sergeant who was making money out of "Tommy.." "Ves,
Sir—certainly, sir!" said the. sergeant, and he drew a pint of very
good beer from his own special tap*.
"Fxcellent!" said the'Chief, fixing
his keen eye on the sergeant.
"There's no fault to be found with,
this. But this is not the same leer..
you sold me ,,c*U:d~y, wl.in. as a
soldier. 1 sal on that seat und paid
my money!" The Chief pushed his

Temperance and prohibition bulk
largely in the latest New Zealand
papers. Mahuta, the third and the
last of tho Maori Kings, who recently renounced his sovereignity and
accepted a seat in the upper house,
has publicly taken the pledge by way
of encouraging native chiefs to do
likewise. in the districts around
Dunedin, the Caledonian centre and
tho commercial capital of the colony,
some scores of public houses ha\e
ceased to exist as such through tho
operation of the local general election. As this was the big-option
poll that accompanied the recent
gest sompulsory closure of public
house* in New Zealund history some
of the leading dailies sent down sonic
sjx'cial correspondents to report und
describe anticipated "scenes." Uut
editorial foresight was at fault in
thia instance. There were no scenes
worthy of the attention of a picturesque reporter, probably becuuse
there was no lkpior available as a
motive power. The hotels had timid
their supplies to last just up to compulsory closing day. Muny l rivute
houses in these districts are now private hotels, well supplied With liquid

Wonderful liirri M usirimi-.
Mr. George Hensehel tells in Nature
• f a musical feat by a canary-bird,
which, he says, seems to him so
wonderful that he should consider it
incredible if he had not, with his
own ears, heard it, not once, but
dozens of times. A bullfinch hud
been taught to pipe the tune of
"God Save the King," and a young
canary learned it from him. Finally
the canary became so perfect in its
mastery of the tunc that when the
bullfinch, as sometimes happened,
stopped after the first hnlf a little
longer than the proper rhythm warranted, the canary would take up the
tuna where the bullfinch had Stopped,
and finish it. This happened whin
the respective cages containing the
birds wore in separate rooms.

From one extreme to another in

i series of pads all round—pads that,
[.always seem to mo to invito a thor-
| ough good and well-deserved spanking—next spring we are to be treated, according to the fashion-mongers,
to "skin-tight gowns, that will have
j no hips." This decree is seemingly
' promulgated at this season in order
: that every woman may have ample
timo to remove her hips. Of course,
this means only those cleverly designed, but not always deceptive
panniers, which at times creukinglv
betray their presence and make evei'v
latitudinal protuberance to be regarded with suspicion. Thoy will now
go to join the bustle in the attic,

sisterhood meun to wear "skin-tight
gowns" over a natural framework
that has not often been moulded on

Clothes are no longer a matter of do-

"occupant" of the coming dies:; will

will look on this new development in

IN A "WIND-JAMMER."
Mr. Itusll Lubbock IwlU How It  Feels to
Be Knucked Hound in Navigating
Wlitem of  Cape Horn.
Cape  Horn  has    always  been    thc
i terror   of    sailors.     Mr.   Basil    Lub-
■ bock, who went round the  horn in a
j "wind-jammer"    and    put  his exper-
I ienccs into a book,  tells how it feels
I to   be  knocked    about    in    tho    cape
seas.     During tho gale of which    he
: writes  the  docks  were  full  of wator,
some  big  seas  wore  coming  aboard,
and the men had a dillicult job clew-
j ing    up the    miz/.en   upper   topsail,
| which  had  come  in   as  soon  as    the
topgallantsails were fast.   Thin came
1 the   terrible   business   of  squaring   in
the yards,  one of the  most dangerous of all jobs when a  heavy sea is
running.     Many a ship has lost,     a
whole watch over the side  while the
men    were at    work on  the braces.
Continuing,  Mr.  Lubbock suys:
"JL was about fifth on the rope
with old Wilson singing out on one
side of me and Higgins on the other.
We had hardly taken two pulls at
thc brace when a huge sea broke
aboard right over our heads, and
both watches were swept oft their
feet in every direction.
"Wilson, Higgins and I received the
full force of it. For ono tiny moment of time I saw the great hissing
mass as it reared its foaming top
higher and higher above us, and then
crash! it toppled its whole weight
upon us.
"Knocked down and overwhelmed
by tho monster, I hung to the brace
with all my strength. Lnder water,
with my heels above my head, 1 saw
dimly tho round bundles washing
near me which 1 knew were Wilson
and   Higgins.
"Over and over thc sea rolled me,
and hurled mo With terrible force
against the main-batch, and three
times my poor right knee came
against  the  ring-bolt.
"I hung to tho brace until the
water tore it from my grasp, and
away I went, lirst my head up, then
my feet, a plaything to tho.whim of
the water.
"It washed mc round the hatch,
bin iped me against tho fife-rail, and
rolled me into tho scuppers. 1 got
entangled and disentangled with other human bundles, and never for a
second eould 1 got my head above
wator.
"At last the water began to run
off, and I found myself sitting up
with my head out. 1 lay to the starboard of the main-hatch. Close to
mo in the scuppers lay throe men in
a tangled mass. Mixed up in tho life-
rail were two more. Another lay
gasping on his back under tho break
of tlio poop.
"Abovo the gale I heard tlie mato's
voice, 'Main-brace, there! Up you
get.' "
"1 picked myself up, dazed and
half-drowned. The captain, who was
on the poop, seeing the whole of his
ship's crow washing nbout tho decks,
dashed down to the dock up to his
waist in water, went to the head of
the brace, and cheering us on and
hauling to his own singing out, soon
got us going again.
"No one was lost. Such is Providence! We ought to have been
killed; we ought to have been washed overboard; but at sea Providence
has constantly to intervene, or no
sailor would live long."
Two Klmln ni  i.unooi'n.
The Hev. Reginald Campbell of
the London City temple during his i
visit to America said a number of |
amusing things. Ono of them concerned dancing. A young girl asked
Dr. Campbell If he did not consider
dancing graceful.
"Professional dancing," he replied,
""is, 1 admit, graceful enough in
some cases. But. what is there of
grace in the dancing of amateurs?
A man and a woman, close together,

LADY COL-BROOKE.
Where She   (lot   Hit* irnt That W»« "So
Full of siamiflo»noe."
Here'i a good etory toid about
I.ady Colebrooke, that prominent
Englishwoman who visited this
country last winter. Lady Coie-
brooke is of the well known Paget
family. Lord Colobrooke's ancestors
are e.[Mully aristocratic, and the Colo-
brooko crest is a rampant lion, tin oo
doves over the head and a wolf
couchant above all. It is an elaborate affair. When Lady Colebrooke
was dining out. with one of the opulent hostesses of Long Island she
glanced casually at the dinner service, every bit of which was duly
embossed with a crest. She was accustomed to heraldic china anil did
not ut once inspect, the design minutely. Later in the evening, lo her
great surprise, sho became aware that
the Colebrooke crest was upon all of
her hostesses' dinner service. "Whore
did you get this crest?" she exclaimed impulsively. Tho hostess replied
unconcernedly: "Isn't it a pretty
one? I picked it out when we furnished this house. It was tho prettiest I could find, and those dear littlo
doves, I think, are so full of sinnific-
anco." Ludy Colebrooke murmured
sadly, "So full of significance."

Attracting Attention
on account of
i. Its Fraser River Placers.
As far back as the year I808, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near the town of Lillooet. Tlie adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time,
A conipany is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising; Mineral Lands.
ANi.i.HsoN laki_ and BRIDGE uiver mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to
form a prosperous camp. Yet there are miles of territory that remain unprospected
3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds--^^
* Increasifig numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.<^~^>
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit maybe grown, and
at the pre. ent time, November, rosebushes and geranium plants may be seen in bloom
in the gardens of the town
Nearest Railway towns are ashoroft and lytton, on the Canadian pacific railway.
