The now almoil completed tour »f the
British Empire by tbe Duke, and Duchmol
Cornwall ami V«rk, mauds unique in history;
never before has tlie prospective heij tc a
throne travelled over an empire so vast in
its extent anil so uniform, in its loyality.
The royal party touched only at BritfsB
possessions, covering over 30,000 miles, considerably more than once around the world*
Nearly seven months will have elapsed when
the future Kii _, will have returned to his
island home; the whole of lhat period will
have been spent in journeying from one British territory to another, across the empire
'on which the sun never sets.'
Apart from the magnitude of lhe royal
journey, this tour will take place in history
as sue of unparalleled and unbroken enthusiasm. From every quarter of the globe, from
while ami black, from civilised and barbar
ian, the welcome extended to the heir presumptive has been must warm and genui.te.
One city has vied wiih another in presenting
ovations. The royal progress has teen
one unbroken line of cheering crowds, and
the sight of the unbounded loyalty of ull the
countries of the empire must have tilled die
heart ul the future king with pride. From
Gileraltai, Malta, Aden, Singapore, from
the newly-born Commonwealth of Australia, from New _uk»ud, St, Helena ami
Mauritius, from South Africa, where 'giini-
visaged wnr has shown his wrinkled front,'
to our own Canada, ihs loyalty of thc assembled uiuituuelcs has been unsurpassed in history.
Pessimists who. have heen croaking about
thc decline of the British empire and ils de-
cule-nce from its lofty sphere of influence,
will (ind ample food for thought in the tout
of the son of Britain's King.

Hon tbe Material That Gives thc
Shining, Metallic Finish to Mirror
and Picture Frames Is Produced.
Gold Leaf Without Gold.
How many persons who see the shining gold in colored printing and on
mirror and picture frames know that
gold does not enter at all into the composition of the stuff that produces these
golden effects?
The shining metallic effect Is produced by a line powder made from a
mixture of bronze and spelter. This
offers the cheapest and best menus of
giving tlie rich surface demanded In
wall papers, printing, lithography, frescoing and in a vast range of manufactured articles of wood, paper and iron.
The material used is so called Dutch
metal, an alloy of copper and spelter.
The relative proportions are varied to
produce different colors. The larger
the percentage of spelter the lighter or
more yellowish will be the tint of the
The copper and spelter are smelted In
graphite crucibles containing about 400
pounds of metal, which, wheu completely fused, Is run off into molds,
forming half round ingots two feet
long by half an inch in thickness. After cooling these are hound Into bundles
and sent to the rolling mill, where they
are passed cold nine times through a
double set of steel rolls under enormous pressure. This tlattens them and
draws them out into thin ribbons from
BO to CO feet long aud something more
than one Inch wide. Cold rolling under such extreme pressure makes the
metal brittle, so It passes to tlie annealing furnace, which is heated by
wood fire, as the sulphur in coal or
coke would be Injurious to the ribbons.
Having been softened and rendered
ductile by annealing, they are cleansed
In an acid bath, cut into lengths of
about three feet nnd collected In bundles of 40 or 50 strips each. They are
laid between sheets of zinc and passed
under hammers which bent the metal
strips to the thinness of tissue paper.
This requires six successive beatings,
nud great skill must be exercised to
produce a. uniform and unbroken foil.
After the third beating the metal strips
are taken from between the sheets of
zinc, loosened from each other and
cleansed by Immersion in n bath of
tartrate of potassium. The cleaning is
repeated after the last beating, and tho
sheets are hung on lines to dry. In tlie
beginning the rolled strips are a dull
gray metallic color, at the fourth beating the yellowish color begins to show,
and after the sixth they are clear and
bright ns gold.
The defective leaves are then thrown
out and the perfect ones cut into small
squares, which are laid together by

and then go to the beaters, where they
are reduced under flattening hammers

The manufacture of bronze powder
consists in grading, clipping and pulverizing the various bronze foils to an
even, impalpable powder and is an industry of comparatively recent date.
It began as a means of using up and
utilizing the imperfect leaves which
came as waste from the beaters of
gold, silver and bronze. These were
cut by hand into line clippings and
then ground to powder In hand mills of
simple construction. With the lapse of
time nnd the spread of artistic industries the uses of bronze powder increased until the demand far outran
the supply of waste, nnd the leaf metal
Is now made on a large scale.
The beating process flattens out a
pound of copper and spelter alloy to an
area of nbout 000 square feet, and In
this condition the square sheets as they
come* from the brass envelopes nre
sheared into small fragments nnd rubbed with olive oil through a steel sieve
having ten meshes to the Inch and then
passed to the stamping and grinding
machines, where they are pulverized by
steam or water power to the bronze
powder of commerce. The grinding
occupies from one to four hours, according to the grade or quality of the
powder to be produced, which Is of
four grades, from coarse to superfine.
The superfluous oil Is removed hy heating under pressure, and the powder
Is then carried Into centrifugal clarl-

and it is Impossible to believe thai
he is soaking pleasure or would deign
to countenance it if it. pursued and
found him. He looks like a man
who would buy thu boat and sell it
again at a profit before reaching the
nexl port. lie is a hard, severe,
shrewd man of business, nnd is making this trip for one object—there is
money to be made at tlie other end
of it. Money—the acquiring uf it is
his occupation. At table, on tlie
deck, wherever he is, he is planning
his fut ure operations.
opposite him sits the lonesome
man. There are several on tlie boat
who are (raveling alone, but this one
is a hundred times more alone than
any of them. lie is traveling for
pleasure, as one ran see by his peaked cap, the camera siting over his
shoulder, and the time-tables and
pamphlets protruding from his pockets. Evidently he started out well
enough—bought the peaked cap an
ihe proper thing, being something
half nautical, and ihi1 carpera to toko
snapshots of scenes that interested
him. lint nothing interests him. so
far as one can teil. He sits alone
mosl of the lime in tiie bow. speaks
to nobody, looking across the water as if he would like to jump off
and drown himself, only lie cannot be
bothered. What on earth drew him
forth to seems with which he eon-
sorts so poorly? Did his wife or his
mother buy the ship and the camera
and the tickets and send him on the
lake tour agalnsl his Inclination, in
i he hope that some of the moist ure
of nature would be absorbed by him?
If so, the scheme does not promise
well. lie is a Stick, a iivy fagot of
a fellow. He leaves the fat on the
side of his plate, and cats little with
an air of melancholy. But perhaps
ho has had bad news since leaving
homo! That would explain it. Wc
hope it, is nol   thai.
Over at the next table are the Americans—three married couples, and a
widow. The widow is a rollicking
good fellow—noisy with fun. Vou
can see that the men like her, and
tin, women do not, although two of
them conceal it very well, and feign
to be much amused at the nonsense
going on. Will tho widow have a
glass of champagne? of course there
is none, but the man on her right
goes through the motions of drawing
a cork, makes hiss'ng sounds, pours
OUl of an imaginary bottle into an
imaginary glass. and pretends to
hand it to the widow, who laughs
until slit- can scarcely keep her rhuir.
One of tno wives has a severe face—
clearly she disapproves. She looks
like a woman who will certainly
coinmenl upon this privately, if not
OUblielv. Cut it is to hw th** t Im
widow addresses her fun, graciously,
perhaps a little bit tauntingly. \\ i
should the prettiest of these four
women be a widow? Why should the
widow also be the iolliest? What
happened to him, that ho should die
and leave this pretty joker to travel
alone? Everybody in the dining
room of the steamer Is compelled to
listen to the fun going on at the
American table. The jolly fat man
with the iron grey hair hopes the
widow will look thein up in November in New York, Tho wife in blue
darts a look at him, and swerves it
toward the widow. Bweetening it as
it turns, and also expresses the hope
that, she will do so. Certainly the
widow will. She has friends residing not far from thein. The woman
wilh llie severe face remarks that.
she scarcely expects to be in New
York by November. Ah! the widow
regrets t o hear it.
At the next table is the man who
always gets the worst of it from the
waiters on boats, ia hotels, and restaurants. Ho orders lish, nnd having got it, tlie waiter goes and
jumps overboard. At least, he never comes back. The man tells another waiter, who says he i.s busy nt
his own table, and cannot attend to
him. He demands Hint the steward
be summoned. Ten minutes cro by.
Others are finishing their dinners. He
goes down stairs end sees the purser,
who returns with him. Three waiters look nfter the kicker. One
brings him soup. He has hnd soup
already—about half nn hour ago. Thi'
lull is held to him; he orders again,
Time goes by. He talks indignantly to the man opposite, who suggests
that the best way lo do is to keep
cool. Tho kicker Intimates that he
supposes the man opposite is part
owner of the boat. The hitler retorts that he has troubles enough of
liis own, nnd doesn't wish the conversation to continue. The man who
has eaten his dinner is ever scornful
of the impatience of the mnn wiio is
waiting for his. This kicker would
got ih<- worst of it at Hie nexl hotel
he came to. On tlie train he would
be unable to find a seat. On reaching
Toronto he would find that, his
baggage had been carried on to
Buffalo, or put off at Toronto Junction. It is not his fault. No effort
on his part will remedy these occurrences. He gets it in tho neck just
because Fate likes to have fun with
those who squirm—likes it as a man
likes to hook a game fish.
Later.—The lonesome man is all
right. The Jolly widow was so provoked at the sight of him that she
knocked his cap over his eyes, and
they got acquainted. He is malting
pictures of everybody, his cap is on
the back of his head, he is trying to
get up a dance in the cabin.

mistakes be makes. He should he credited  as he protits by them.—Atchison

The Late .Senator Allan Was So Regarded
in All Circle...
Senator Allan deserved to be regarded, from more than one point of
view, as Toronto's first citizen. His
whole life has been passed here, snys
The Toronto Globe, and it was, it
might almost be said, coeval with
tho life of tho community. His tastes
and public duties touched those of
his day and generation at a dozen
different points. In its finance, education, art, philanthropy, horticulture, he had labored with zeal and
distinction. Indeed, there were very
few laudable lines of improvement in
which he had not borne his share of
it is a tribute to the stability of
our lifo that ho died in tho same
groat, house in which he was born almost eighty years ago. Moss Porlf
was the Allan family house long before Toronto attained the rank of a
city, and its late master had the
training and education that an English squire gives to his sons. After
leaving school he made tho grand
tour, and doubtless returned to the
little community in the York woods
with enlarged ideas of the world beyond the seas, and the applicability
or non-applicability of its conditions
to the new world. The persons of
position which were connect-ed with
the early life of Ontario in all probability dreamed of the possibility of
founding families hero. Sleepy Hollow, the Grange, Moss Park, nnd
other such houf&s were the provisional scats, at least, of this squirearchy. Tho air of this continent, or
perhaps its hick of laws of primogeniture and entail, makes the continuance of such families somewhat precarious. In the case of Senator Allan
it can be said, however, that he had
the culture, sense of public duty and
honorable traditions thut form the
best recommendation of such a class.
His leisure was not spent in trivialities or idle pleasures, but in an endeavor to do whatever duties came
to his hand as a member of the community. To his munificence it is
largely due that Toronto possesses
one of its handsomest public squares,
and it is to 1)0 hoped that at some
early day a memorial will he erected
in the Horticultural Gardens which
will remind visitors to thein that the
city owes thein to thu generosity of

A Broadway shoe manufacturer was
asked what method of advertising he
found most profitable.
"Placing my men near the window."
he said, "so they can work in view of
the public. I don't know of anything
that catches tlie attention of the passerby more quickly than the sight of a
demonstrator sitting close to the window running a machine for dear life.
"Manufacturers of all kinds of goods
have adopted this plan. V. alstmakei'S
put their most skilled workers on exhibition to show how the finest garments
are cut and sewed. Cigar manufacturers tnke tlie public into their confidence
nnd let them see tlie process of rolling
as performed b.v the cleverest hands.
.Men who deal in mechanical contrivances have found tbat It pays to have
at least one machine set up near n window so the crowd uutsMe may observe
tlie intricacy of l;s parts and the rapidity of Its action. Jewelers have stationed iheir most expert lapidaries within

cut and polished and set.
"It isn't everybody who can work in

who are excellent workers, but they

"A man who can run a machine at

In the way of recent parody the

a Halifax correspondent, signing
himself "W. 1>," to the London

contained in the fact that, the English Hoard of Education insists

The port Campbell, in his well-

The    Shock*    of    Exercise    Lengthen
Them and Keep Them Even.
As a fact, says the author, our lower
limbs are not usually both of exactly
the same length, though they are so for
all practical purposes. The left is usually the longer, though tbe gait Is not
notably Influenced by tbis fact. At
birth the lower limbs are shorter than
the upper, and their movements are
rather of the prehensile type. "We are
not born leggy like the foal or kangaroo, but we gradually achieve leggi-
ness." The bones increase in length, uot
so much by Interstitial deposit as by
addition to their ends—that Is, by progressive ossification of the layer of cartilage which Intervenes between the
end of the shaft and the epiphysis. Ossification goes on till the component
parts of the bone nre all united by bony
matter, and thus the stature of the Individual Is determined.
If from Inflammation or injury au
epiphysis be damaged, one limb may be
shorter than the other, or inflammatory
stimulation may even Induce an Increased length in the bone affected. Thc
skeletons of tortoises, not being subjected to sudden jars, have no epiphyses at the ends of the long bones,
whereas In the leaping frog the extremities of the humerus nnd femur long remain as separate epiphyses. Tbe continuous concussions to which the ends
of tbe bones of tbe lower limbs are exposed when a vigorous child is excited
by Its own natural spirit to run nbout
are doubtless of great value in assisting the growth in length of the lower
limbs, which soon lose their Infantile
character and become adapted for running nnd walking. By exposing the
lower limbs to the same Influences and
resistances during their entire growth
we manage to maintain them of the
same length, and gentle jars upon the
epiphyses at the joints may be considered favorable to growth.
Taking Sunday Collections.
An old and not yet obsolete mode of
taking a collection in a Scotch church
Is by means of a ladle—a small wooden
box at the end or a straight wooden
shaft about four and a half feet long,
the top of the box being sufficiently
open to receive contributions of money.
For all special collections this was tlie
usual mode in the chief churches of
Edinburgh when I was a boy at school
there 50 years ago. but It has gradually
gone out of fashion and Is not often to
be seen nowadays.
For ordinary Sunday collections tlie
general custom has been to have a
metal plate or basin on a small table
nt the church entrance superintended
by an elder—a mode which was often
called tbe brod. When ladles are used,
they are banded round tbe congregation
by elders after the sermon or after the
last psalm, and the common Scotch
phrase to "lift" the collection mav have
come   from   this   custom.
Some  Queer  Verdicts.
What Is "a reasonable state of Intoxication" apparently just missed precise
definition by a coroner's Jury In Mississippi Which stated in Its verdict that
"we, the Jury, Hnd that deceased came
to ids death by a stroke of an east
bound train. No. 204, on L C. Rallfond.
at Fentress, Miss., In Choctaw county,
be being in a reasonable state of Intoxication."
A somewhat similar Indellnlteness of
legal conclusion mars a verdict of a
neighboring Georgia Jury to the effect
that "we, tbe Jury, Hud the defendant
almost guilty."
Equally as uncertain nnd ambiguous
as these statements by laymen is the
opinion In an early Maryland case
which "acknowledges the corn" by sny-
Ing that an occurrence referred to took
place "at a former sitting when tbe
court was full."
The Gencrons   l.rs  to Which  Henry
Word Beochc-r Put  It.
In his "Eccentricities of Genius" Major Pond says that often while traveling Henry Ward IScecher Improved his
time by having what be called "a general bousecleanlng" of his pockets,
which would get loaded up with letters
and papers until they could bold no
more, wdien he would clear them out
and destroy sueh papers as were worthless.
On one occasion Beecber happened
to put his hand In the watch pocket
of his pantaloons nnd found there a
little envelope Which he opened. When
he saw Its contents, he called Major
Pond to sit beside blm and remarked:
"You remember the evening 1 married
C. P. Huntington. 1 was so much interested In the subject thnt I forgot
be handed me a little envelope as he
went out of tbe door. I put it In the
watch pocket of my pantaloons and
never thought of It again until Just
now, and here It Ib, four $1,000 bills.
Now," he said, "don't tell any one
about It. and we will hnve a good time
and make some happiness with this
money. We will just consider that we
found it."
Aud so in a day or two Mr. I'.oecher
went with Major Pond to look at a
cargo of line oriental rugs, many of
which he purchased and sent to differ-
I ent friends, and afterward he spent
j what remained of the money for coin
silver lamps, unmounted gems and various pieces of brlc-a-brac, all of which
he gave away until be had used up
tlie entire $4,000 "in making happiness
among those whom he loved."
After Mr. Beeelier's death the major
related to Mr. Huntington the Incident
of this discovery or the four $1,000
bills, and tbe railway magnate observed: "I should never have given them
to him. It was nil wrong. I made a

"Well. Clarence, what is 11'/" asked

nnd 1 know from experience that another is due about this time."
Iiul. iii ii Steel Hulls.
The rail mill presents mnny pictures
that appeal strongly to lovers of the
picturesque. Under ordinary circumstances the great strands of iron, each
half ns long as a city block, slide back
and forth smoothly enough between
the rolls that are stretching them and
pressing them iuto the required shape,
out a tiny obstacle may at any moment
tarn one of these cables of lire off the
beaten track and twist It into a hopeless taugle or wind It like a squirming
snake around some unfortunate workman.
When tbe rolling process has been
completed, the piece of Iron slides along
to the great buzzsaws, which cut It up
into the 30 foot rails known to the railway traveler. Every time the whirring
circular saw clips off one of these
lengths, sparks radiate In every direction, as though the biggest pyrotech-
nical pinwheel ever devised had been
suddenly set in motion.
When the rail has been cooled and
boles have been drilled In it, It Is ready
to start for any part of tbe world.
The evolution of bars or beams or
sheets from the big steel slabs Is gained by the Bame general method of procedure. It Is tbe size and shape of the
grooves in the rolls which determine
the form to be ultimately assumed by
the   steel   In  their  clutcbes.-
"Well, papa, what are all those big

Aiuernia, or thin, watery blond, is increasing to an alarming extent among the school girls and young women of our
land. Pale gums, tongue and eyelids, muscular weakness, inability i'or exertion, deficient appetite, impaired digestion, short
breath, palpitation of the heart, attacks of vomiting, swooning,
hysteria and irregularities of the feminine organs are among the
unmistakable symptoms of anajmia or poor qualify of blood.
Anremic persons r.re frequently said to be going into a decline, and as a iact do usually contract consumption or some
fatal constitutional disease ii they neglect to restore normal
vigor. Fresh air, sunliyht, moderate exercise and the regular
use of Dr. Chase:s Nerve Food after each meal will restore new
vitality to the body and new color to the cheek of any anajmic
person. Gradually and thoroughly it forms new red corpuscles
in the blood and wins back perfect health and strength.

Dear Sirs,—I penned a few lines to

information ; at that time I had in
my mind friends whose son was a
great cause of anxiety and trouble on
account of his drunken habits. 1
strongly urged the. friends to try the
remedy I saw advertised in the Toronto Globe. Tlvsy did so. It was
•the Samaria Remedy that was administered aiul 1 am pleased to inform the company the medicine was
helpful; Ihe young man hns not
drank a drop since, breaking off from
old companions; and special prayers
on his behalf, all aided in breaking
the chains.
At the last meeting of the W. C.

and a resolution was passed, "That
inasmuch as it is the aim of this organization to help the poor inebriate,
we should recomi"end this remedy in
homes where persons are addicted to
the use of intoxicating liquors."
Now, sirs, wishing you a successful
career in your noble work, and feeling that assistance can be given in
the precincts of home by the hnnd of
mother or wife, trusting God may
open up useful avenues for your labors,      Yours very respectfully.

There can bo no question that tlie emigrants from our shores are physically of

years ago we had the plensure of a long
interview with a Roman Catholic priest
in the poorest part of County Qalway.
lie was very frank aud plain spoken, but
we allude here to ouly one of his remarks. The chapel he served was poor
and primitive in the extreme. "Look at
these pensants," he said, "whom you saw
ia chapel this morning. Barefooted and
humble, as most of them are, they aro

Mrs. Edward Patterson of Conboy-
villo the Writer-Her High Opinion of Dodd's Kidney Pills—Her
Advice to  Others.
Conboyville, Ont., Sept. 23.—(Special)—Mrs. Edward Patterson of this
town is one of those who can testify to tlie lasting nature of cojres by
Dodd'a Kidney Pills, the great Canadian remedy for all affections of the
Mrs. Edward Patterson, according
to her own statement, is today in
splendid health. Her rheumatism has
left her, and although it is ten years
since then, it has never returned beyond a slight touch in cold weather,
which a Dodd's Kidney Pill or two
immediately drives away. This proves
what has always been claimed—that
Dodd's Kidney pills cure permanently. Their effects are lasting—in fact
they do not merely reiieve^-they cure.
Hero is Mrs.  Patterson's letter :
"It is many years, perhaps ten or
twelve, since I started taking Dodd's
Kidney Pills, and then it was not
for Rheumatism that I took them.
I was feeling miserable and did not
know what ailed me, and while reading a paper I saw thc testimony of
some one who had been cured by
Dodd's Kidney Pills, who had been
feeling just as I was. I got a box
nrol found thoy helped me. I found
also Hint toy rheumatism wns not
nearly as bad. for I had suffered for
ninny years, especially in cold weather, I havo used dozens of bot ties
of medicines nnd liniments, but it always returned until I used Dodd's
Kidney Pills nnd now I seldom have
a touch of if. I occasionally get a
box, perhaps two a year. I never
hear anyone complain of Rheumatism
but T advise them to try Dodd's Kidney Pills."

Watchful    Mothers Can    Keep   Their
Babies Healthy, Sosy-Cheeked
and Happy.
Nothing in the world is such n
comfort and joy as a healthy, hearty
rosy-cheeked, happy baby.
Baltics can bo kept in perfect health
ouly by having at hand and administering when needed some purely vegetable, harmless remedy, and of all
this class of medicines Baby's Own
Tablets are conceded to be  tho best.
For constipation, colic, diarrhoea,
simple fevers, sour stomachs, teething babies, indigestion and sleeplessness, these tablets aro a really wonderful cure. You can give them to
the smallest baby without the slightest fear. Dissolved in water, they
will be taken readily. Thoy contain
absolutely not a particle of opiate
or other injurious drugs. They are
small, sweet lozenges that any baby
will take without objection, and
(heir action is prompt and pleasant.
They will (one up the whole system
and make tho little one as hearty
and free from infantile disorders as
any mother could wish.
Mrs. Halter Brown. Milby, Que.,
says: "1 have never used any medicine for baby that did him so much
pond as Baby's Own Tablets, 1
would not be without them." This
is the verdict of all mothers who
have used these tablets.
They cost 25 cents a box. All
druggists sell them or they may be
secured by sending the price direel
and tho tablets will bo forwarded
prepaid. The Dr. Williams' Medicine

Mrs. Hiram Rinkler, the wife of a
respected fanner In South l'elhnin
township. Vicllund county, Ontario,
says:—"it is with great pleasure
that I give this tribute to the health
restoring virtues of Pr. Williams'
Pink Pills. When my daughter, Lena,
(now thirteen years of nge) began
the use of your medicine, a little
over a year ago. she wns in a most
wretched condition, in fact we were
seriously alarmed lest she might nol
recover. The lirst symptoms were a
feeling of langour and weakness,
gradually growing worse. She became pale, lost flesh, had little or no
appetite and was apparently going
into a decline. Finally the trouble
became complicated with n persistent
sore throat, which gave her great
difficulty In swallowing. 1 gave her
several advertised medicines, but
they dill not benefit her. Then she
was placed under the cure of a doctor, who said her blood was poor
and watery, und her whole system
badly run down. The doctor's Lraat-
trvonl   did nol help her any nnd  then.
'acting on the advice of a neighbor, I
began to give her Pr. Williams' I 'ink
i'iils. The confidence with which this
medicine wns urged upon us wns not
misplaced, ns 1 soon noticed a distinct improvement in my daughter's
condition.   The uso  of the pills for a
j few weeks longer seemed to completely restore her nnd from thai
time she has been a cheerful, light-
hearted girl. Iho very picture of
health. I will always recommend Pr.
Williams' Pink Pills to other sufferers, feeling sure they will prove quite
1 ns  efficacious  as     they     did     in   my
t daughter's case.
Mothers    with    growing  daughters
I will   make  no  mistake  if   Ihey   insist
tupon the occasional use of Dr. Williams' Pink Tills. Ihey will help them
to develop properly; will make their
blood rich nnd pure and thus ward
off disease and decline. The genuine pills are sold only in boxes hearing the full name, "Pr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People" on the
wrapper around ench box. None
other is genuine, no matter what
some self-interested dealer may say.
Tf in doubt send direct to the Dr.
Williams' Medicine Co.. Brockville,
