matter of doubt or supposition. It is nt t
a plain everyday business fact that the
road will be built.
Up to tlio present time all the work
that has been done along tho line of
perfecting arrangements for the road
has been under the old syndicate agreement, but with thfl organization now
completed work will begin m earnest

A   Network  of  Cnrlon.  Stories  Hare
Been Woven  About  It.
The little crab about tbe size of a pr-a,
resembling a bleached out spider, is the
oyster crap. In Europe it is called the
pea crab and is decidedly scarce, rarely
seen except by naturalists. It is common ou our coasts, not only in oysters,
hut also in mussels and scallops.
Washington crab is a naute tbat hns
been suggested for it, as it was considered a great delicacy by our Grst president, says The Scientific American. Th.'
oyster crab has been known from tbe earliest history, and a curious network of
stories hnve been woven about it.
Aristotle the Greek and Pliny the Roman, naturalists, believed thnt a definite
relation or understanding existed between tbe shellfish and its lodge, and
even went so far ns to sny thnt detttb
would be the result if the crab should desert its host. The watchful crab, living
within the home of the dull antl stupid
oyster, on seeing small lish approach,
would wait until one more bold than the
rest of his companions ventured within
lhe open shell; then, gently nipping the
oyster, tbe doors would be closed nnd the
fish held n prisoner. Thereupon the two,
the host uud his guest, would feed nt leisure upou the body of the venturesome
Another story, which held its own until
late in the last century, was that this little crab played the part of the "king's
jackal," who htiuted by night for his
majesty the lion. It would sally forth to
bunt and bring food to the helpless n,»is-
sel or oyster und on returning from the
bunt, should it find the house closed,
would give a cry, which was leeogniz.ed
by tlie host, the door instantly opened,
and it was allowed to enter. Study has
shown that the crab never leaves its
home nnd cannot cry, but as for the lion,
wbo, in fact, often gets the food for the
jackal, so it is that the little crab feeds
upon the substances which are swept iu
by the current of water made by the bivalve in order to bring its own food and
to freshen lhe water for its respiration.
Again, the crnb wus snid to wnrn its
protecting host from danger by a timely
pinch, so that the doors could be closed
against some crafty octopus or insidious
starfish, and for which service the crnb
wus rewnrded by bonrd and lodging.
It is true the oyster crab may act in
such manner thnt it warns tho oyster of
the approach of danger, but oue can
scarcely believe that it is anything but a
personal motive on its part. Present day
folks do not believe tbat any intelligent
understanding exists betweeu the two.
We have nil seen how n crab will hurry
back and forth on the approach of danger, will dart Into the first crevico to escape its foe and when in safety brandish
its formidable claws with the greatest
show of bravery. So the little oyster
crab may with the same instinct run
hack and forth within the sensitive man-
lie of the oyster nnd, retreating, push
against its soft body, which will indicate
lu tbe slothful intelligence of its host
that something is wrong outside, when it
will discreetly close its "hell us tbe better

A Unique Dell Tower.
When the first settlement wns made
ou Commencement buy, Paget sound, it
wns simply a lumber camp and trading
post. After the Northern Pacific rail
road was completed to Commencement
bay a city was built ou tbe high ground
above the lumber camp southward, nnd
thnt Is the handsome city of Tacoma.
The ancient lumber camp Is now thai
part of Tncoma which is called "Old
Town" locally. Early In the history of
Old Town an Episcopal clergyman, now
Bishop Morris of Oregon, built a little
wooden church in the plnee alongside of
a huge fir tree that had been broken off
about 40 feet above the ground.
It wns first the intention to build the
church behind the tree and cut a doorway through the trunk, thus making the
tree the entrance as well ns the bell
tower, but this plan wns nbnndoncd. A
belfry tipped with n cross wus built upon
the top of the tree, n bell placed therein
and swung. To this day tho ivy clad fit-
is the bell tower of tho church.

World's Greatest Kidney Cure,    i
It's a simple matter to test the kidneys. You need not)
consult a doctor. By asking yourself three questions, you ca^i
determine whether or not your kidneys are deranged. y
First—" Have you backache or weak, lame back ?" (
Second—" Do you have difficulty in urinating, or too frtfc-
quent desire to urinate ? " \
Third—"Are  there  deposits like brickdust  in the urine)
after it has stood for 24 hours ? " '1
In its early stages kidney disease is readily cured by a •
few boxes of Dr. Chase's   Kidney-Liver  Pills, a preparation-'
which has made Dr. Chase  famous throughout  the world fo;r
his wonderful cure of diseases of the kidneys.
If you have kidney disease you can take Dr. Chases Kidney-Liver Pills with perfect confidence that what JpTas proved
an absolute cure in so many thousands of cases ywill not fail
you. So long as the cells of the kidneys are not completely
wasted away, as in the last stases of Bright1- Disease, Dr.

Coining lion n With a Parachute.
"Coming down from the clouds In a
parachute Is like a dream," said a circus balloon artist. "Ever dream ot
lulling from a high place? You come
down, alight quietly and awake, and
you're not hurt. Well, that's the parachute drop over again. No; there Is no
danger. A parachute can be guided
readily on the down trip, but you can't
steer a balloon. To guide a parachute
out of harm's way a practiced hand
can tilt It one way or the other, spill
out air aud thus work it to where you
want to land or to avoid water, trees,
chimneys or church spires.
"Circus ascensions are generally
made in the evening. When the sun
goes down, the wind goes down. Tlie
balloon then shoots into the air, and
the parachute drops back on the circus
lot or not far away.
"A balloon is made of 4 cent muslin
and weighs about ."(10 pounds. A parachute is made of 8 cent muslin. The
rope that secures the parachute Is cut
with a knife. The aeronaut, tk'ops
fully 100 feet before the parachute begins to fill. It must till If you're up
high enough. Invariably the fall Is
In-all first. When the parachute begins to till, the descent Is less rapid,
antl linnlly when the parachute has
finally filled it bulges out with a pop.
Then the aeronaut climbs on to Ills trapeze and guides the parachute to n safe
lauding. In seven cases out of ten you
ea n land back oo the lot ■vhere you
started from."

Miss Emma Huskinson, n Captain In th*

Williams' Piuk 1-ills.
From the Hun,  Orangeville,  Ont.
Among ihe oldest and most highly
respected residents of Orangeville is
Mrs. John Huskinson, whose daughter, Emma, has for a number of
years been an acute sufferer from the
after effects of malarial fever. A reporter of the Sun bearing of the wonderful effects which Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have had on Miss Huskinson, called at her home to enquire into I lie I ruth of the rumor. After
staling the reason of his visit, he
wus kindly received by Mrs. Huskinson, who gave, him the following
facts of tbe cure: "Some years ago."
Baid Mrs. Huskinson, "my daughter
Emma, who is now captain of the
Newmarket corps of lhe Salvation
Army, was attacked by malarial
fever. She was under a doctor's care
for a long time, and although she recovered sufficiently to go about, the
after effects of the fever left her very
weak and the doctor did not seem
ali2e '.o put any life into her. She
had frequent headaches, was very
pale, and '.he least exertion would
greatly fatigue her. ?.. thought a
change might vi-.i her ,j-_od and consequently she went on a visit to Toronto. While there she was advised to
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and at
once purchased a supply, llefore she
had finished the second box she noted
a marked change for the bolter, her
appetite improved, her color returned, lhe feeling of exhaustion had disappeared, and by the time she had
taken half a dozen boxes she was enjoying the best of health, and all her
old-time vigor had returned. Although her work in the Salvation
Army is hard and exposes her to all
kinds of weather, she has since been
able to do it without the least Inconvenience.
"Some time after my daughter's
euro I found myself completely run
down, and to add to my trouble was
seized witli a severe attack of rheumatism. Remembering (he benefit my
daughter had received from Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, I decided to use
them, and befo'o I had taken half a
dozen boxes I felt fully recovered and
have been in the best of health ever
since. My advice to all ailing is to
use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale

London, Dec. 29.—The London & Globe
Finance corporation, Limited has suspended
payment. When the brokers yesterday delivered se-ck purchased on account of the
London „ Globe and asketl for payment, they
received checks which were dishonored. This
was followed today by tlie laihuc on the stock
exchange of twelve firms.
While the difficulty of the firms closely
with the Londou„ Globe division were largely discounted, the repeated fall of the hammer this morning caused a great sensation. It
is feared the full list of failures is _not yet
According to despatch received by the
Associated Press from London_hc financial
papers announce litis morning that some
trouble was disclosed on the stock exchange
yesterday in the west Australia market consisting in the shares] of London & Globe Finance corporation, limited, and Le Roi
Mining company, limited, seven firms had
checks returned by the Clearing house.
This the despatch added, did not imply failure, however, asMt was expected that the usual
period of grr.ee allowed would enable the
firms to meet llicir engiigement.
Almost the whole interest on the stock ex-
changed to-day lias centred in the west Australia market, the condition of which sympathetically affected the others, All the shares
of the London _ Globe group toppled, especially Lake-views and tlie Le Roi No, 2.
The snares of the latter were yesterday quoted
at 22, but to-day they are unable at
4. The London & Globe is also heavily involved in the British Columbia market.
The failure ol she London _ Globe Finance
corporation brought about the failure of the
thirteen firms, on the London stock exchange,
who are especially connected witli the W'nit-
aker-Wright group. The financial trouble is,
however, confined lo lhat particular group.
