CAMERON ft HURLEY     ■:-    Lytton and Lillooet, B L
The succession of accidents we are having
recently is bringing home to the people of this
community the absolute necessity of having a
mtll hospital in Lillooet. It is simply absurd to expect hotels and private individuals to
incommode themselves and sacrifice property
and convenience to the extent that hns heen
done in this town. The vitiated atmosphere
of an hotel is a constant menace to life and
limb, it is an utter impossibility to expect satisfactory results under such circumstance. A
very small appropriation would be all that is
required to effect a vast improvement. A
small, clean, well ventilated room with a
couple of beds with rubber mattra_r.es
would meet the present requirements.
Lillooet is the only district in the
province that has not an institution of the
kind and it is about time that one was arranged for at an early date.
Our versatile member is a constant source of
surprises to his host of admirers. He is con-
;tantly developing new qualities and keeps the
members of this community on the qui vive as
to'what next will be trump. No one looking
at him would suspect that he was an athlete,
a gladiator, but nevertheless, gentle redder,
such is the case, lie recently gave an exhibition of* the manly art of self defence that places
him in tbe front rank of modern pugilist. His
foeman was by no means unworthy of his
steel, but the nimbleness of our member rendered him invincible. As lie left the office of
his antagonists he gave the spectators an exhibition of "cold feet " which could only be
emulated by a successful sport in a hard poker
The Bridge river district is attracting considerable attention on the outside, and in the
spring quite a number of men representing
tj'jnd companies and capital, have made arrangements to visit and inspect the mining
properties with a view of taking them up.
We notice in a coast paper last week in reference to the Woodchuck sale, and reports the
claims as being on Vancouver Island. It looks
rather peculiar that the coast papers publish
very little of this district and when they do
seldom have it correct. All Lillooet wants is
a square deal and if the papers do not get a rake
off, they might at least not make mention,
« to give other sections credit for Lillooet

Two eminent lawyers, Mr. Macmafiter
of Montreal, ami Mr. E. P. Davis of,
Vancouver, Bays that tlie statute passed
by the Liberal government In 1S98 confers the right of franchise on naturalized Chinese and Japanese. This act—
entitled "Tlie Franchise Act, 189S"—re-
pealed the provision left on the statute
books by the Liberal-Conservative, that
no Chinese or Japanese could vote, and
provided as follows:
Provincial Disqualifications Not Adopted
6. No person possessed of tbe qualifications generally required by the
provincial law to entitle him to vote
at a provincial election, shall be disqualified from voting at a Dominion j
election merely by reason of any provision of tbe provincial law disqualifying j

no reasonable doubt as to the intention
of the voter,
Under the new system the block

but they are placed an inch apart and
between each pair is set tbe name of a
candidate, in other words the names of
the candidates are separated by tbe
blocks referred to. To signify his intention, all that the voter has to do ia to
place tbe cross anywhere opposite to the
name of his choice. It is thought that
this method wili keep many a ballot
which, under the disc system would
probably have to be rejected.
There is also another point to which
the returning officer called attention and
that is the freedom of the voter to  vote
The majority of towns and cities in the province, since it has been found there is a possibility of having a mint in Canada, are advocating their own town as the ideal place for such
an institution. Lillooet can supply a portion
of the bullion for the mint, but owing to the
transportation facilities we do not think it
would be advisable for the government to decide 0:1 Lillooet as the heatlquorters for the
mint, although we have claims for such an institution, Vancouver no doubt is entitled to
the mint, its natural advantages and being the
most enterprising city in the province, the
mint certainly should he there.
The dominion general election on Wednesday resulted in the return to power the Liberal
administration. The returns are similar as
they were in IXoS as to the standing of the
parties. This election leaders and strong men
on both sides were victims. The interest in
the campaign lor Yale-Cariboo and Burrard
will not he so exciting   as it would have been.
The elections in the United Slates on Thursday resulted in a greater victory than before
for William McKinley as president. This is
Mr. McKinlcy's second term and the voters
showed their confidence in again returning
him as president. His opponent William J.
Bryan will now probably be quiet for awhile.
Messrs. J. M. Mackinnon and W. E.
Robertson, directors of the Bend'Or
Mines Ltd., returned from Bridge Kiver anywhere within his riding. Thus a

Hit KnerKien und Talent* Are Turnrd
In Hew Direction* ns Her Sur-
roDndlnsii Change, but "Woman
and Her Work" la Nothing New.
My, my, what a stir there has been of
late ahout "woman and her work!" One
would think that the busy woman hud
only just appeared upon the scene and
was, therefore, such a novelty that to
make note of all she says and does, and,
furthermore, discuss what she is hoping
to do, is of wonderful and thrilling interest.
The busy woman, as a matter of fact,
bas always been. It may be that she is
only just "discovered," having previously heen accepted very much as a matter
of course.
The day of the busy woman dates back
much further, of course, than the civil
war—in fact, there are stories of her baking and brewing anil spinning that are
written along with the accounts of the
doings of kings and princes in the days of
old, and a word of praise for her has been
jotted down by the scribes. Hut as the
civil war is a convenient period for us to
look back to, and after all it did mean so
very much in the lives of American women, the women of the sixties, who dwelt
in both tlie north and the south, it may
be interesting for just a moment's recalling.
The New England woman was up with
the sun nnd directed her "help" nnd
shared with them the work. Her bouse
was ns spick and span as a new pin, and
she always had time for a "tea drinking"
with her women friends in the afternoon.
She made the "seed cakes" herself—there
were no convenient hakeries to supply
bcr with n "ready made" cake. No one
considered it remarkable, either, that she
was clever enough to make her own
rakes. Sometimes a neighbor who thought
them particularly good would beg the
recipe, and this was compliment enough.
And the woman of the south in the six-
tics—has it ever been your good fortune
to see a little notebook, or "daybook" as
they were called, kept by your grandmother or your mother when mistress of
n plantation^ If you have, then you
know something of what busy days women used to know in the long ago, as well
ns they know them now, and I do not believe there was much speculation then
about the "dangers of overwork." Certain it is that our grandmothers lived to
a good old age and were very charming,
gentlewomen, which latter proves that
they took time to look at the social side
of affairs and cultivate the art of graceful manners.
The southern woman of the sixties never neglected or ignored her responsibilities in the matter of her dependents. She
mnde a daily round of the little cabins
(lotted die re and there about the "big
house," took medicine to the ailing and
in a soft and gentle voice read the Bible
to the dying. Her little white fingers
'Were marked with red rings that the
heavy shears had made when she cut out
dozens of garments to clothe the old and
the young of the care free people who
fcrfng and toiled in the cotton and tobacco
fields. There was her own little brood of
children, too, to keep a watchful eye
over. She planned oil their pretty little
frocks and put in many of the stitches
herself, for "fine needlework" was the
pride of the woman of the sixties. And
though she may have done so. it isn't on
record that she ever dropped any of these
tasks and rushed away to some far place
fur the "rest cure."
Ami have you any relics of the time
that the men in gray marched away? I
mean relics that ate handiwork of the
women of the sixties'.' Perhaps you have
a little old hat that is made out of palmetto braid or a bonnet made from the
liber of a gourd or slippers made from
the cloth of a coat that was left by the
men folk when they put on their soldier
uniforms. And, maybe, up in your attic,
thrust away with the trash, there is a
little pair of gloves knitted from the
thread raveled from a pair of silk stockings or a hat trimmed with flowers
made from dyed feathers. If you have
any such relics, of course they nre good
for nothing except to tell the busy women of the present day how the women
of the sixties faced a trying time wilh
pluck and energy.
No, the busy and bright and capable
woman is by no means a new institution. I have only turned back the pages
of the record of her affairs because it
is all the more to her honor nnd glory
thnt she has always had a place in the
civilized world, just ns she no doubt will
always have. We all rather like nn institution with a history. True, the busy
woman of the present has her energies
and abilities directed in different channels from those known to the women of
the sixties, but this is not because she
has changed. Her surroundings have
changed, aud the capable woman always
rises to the occasion.
A very clever and interesting woman
the other day read a paper before a lot
of other clever and interesting women,
and she told of a busy woman's busy
day. She noted the number of club meetings she might possibly attend, the luncheons and dinners and teas, hut never a
word said she about how busy she might
be at home. Of course she may have
thought the home subject too prosaic and
unintcresting and unimportant to mention. This bright reader cautioned
against tbe danger of "overworking,"
paying tribute to the saving grace that
came ns the only real rest in the week
when the busy woman went to church on
it seems to me that the affairs of tlie
busy woman at home should not be too
prosaic or unimportant to take cognisance of. If she is a true hearted woman, she will never neglect her home
duties, though she he adopted into a
dozen clubs with as many letters standing for their titles.—Margaret Ilanuis in

A theater at night during a rehearsal
is not the most fascinating place one can
find, writes Miss Mary Kealty in Success.
However, it proved very interesting to
one unaccustomed to it as I was.
At the end of three weary weeks my
chance came. When almost despairing
of ever getting anything, my heart wns
gladdened by the stage manager, who
said I might go on that evening, ns one
of the girls had left. The place to be
filled was in the first row, an unusually
good chance. But then my troubles began. Not being a very good artist, I
failed in my make up, which is one of
the first considerations on the stage.
I must have looked like a fright as 1
emerged from the dressing room. One
eye and one corner of my mouth were
becoming very friendly—trying to meet.
The others were just the reverse—not on
speaking terms at all. My poor nose
was so white that it looked like a piece
of dough or putty put on to suit the occasion.
Hid I say in the front row? Well,
hardly. As soon as he discovered me, the
stage manager ordered "that ugly person"
to go into the back row, and back 1 went.
One of the girls consoled me by saying I
was not so ugly ;is 1 looked, aud she afterward assisted me to do better. Thereafter, by study and application, 1 was
enabled to secure engagements in such
good companies as Daly's, IIice's ami
Krohman's and to advance from the chorus to good speaking parts, with bright
prospects ahead.
Women Fl..v».e.n»».
Women physicians have established
themselves nil over Russia, and even
their opponents must admit that they
have achieved A respected position, says
The German Medical Weekly. Part of
them are employed by the government
and since last year are entitled to a pension. They occupy positions as county
physicians, physicians for the poor and
the municipal ambulance system, etc.
Mrs. Dr. N. Shulz, in the St. Petersburg Institute For Experimental Medicine, is one of the foremost experts in
bacteriology, and her lectures nre well
attended by physicians of both sexes.

Why a Bride Warn Late.
A Brooklyn man, saying to a business
friend one day recently that it was the
third anniversary of his wedding, recalled
the following incident of the eventful
day: Being fervent in business, even ou
his wedding day, he remained at his office until 0 o'clock in the eveniug. The
ceremony was to take place at 8. On
his way home to don his wedding suit he
thought he would stop at the church to
see that all preparations had been attended to. To his dismay the white ribbon for the aisles had been forgotten.
He telephoned to one of the stores, nnd
in the exigency of the case n messenger
was dispatched with the ribbon and was
met half way by the prospective bridegroom, who adjusted the difficulty and
was in time to meet his bride.
Another wedding difficulty is recalled
In the instance of a Brooklyn girl who
wns married in Grace Church-on-the-
Heigilts not very long ago. Guests were
assembled, but the bridal party did not
appear, and still the wonder grew while
one of the bride's family was dispatched
to buy a second pair of wedding slippers. The original slippers were misplaced during the morning by a maid.

Tea Tnble Folklore.
Hero are a few very old superstitions
about tlie cup that cheers:
When the tea is made and the lid of
the teapot is forgotten for t few minutes,
it is a sure sign that some one will drop
In to'tea.
If single persons find that they have
two spoons by the side of the cup, he or
she will figure prominently, perhaps very
prominently, at a wedding before the
year is out.
If you put cream in your tea before
sugar it will cross your love.
If a tea stalk floats in the cup of an
unmarried lady it is called a "beau."
When this happens, she should stir the
tea round briskly, and then plant the
spoon upright in the middle of the cup,
holding it quite still with the fingers. If
the "beau" in its twirlings is attracted to
the spoon and clings to it, he will be sure
to put in an appearance some time during
the evening. If the sides of the cup attract him, lie wiH not come that night.
Marking Linen.
For handkerchiefs the small separate
script initial letters of one's, name are
the best form. Monograms nnd single
letters are used or even the name written
out in full, but the initials are likely to
look best. The embroidery is done in
the French white or laid work, the same
thit is used for marking one's underwear
and in a larger way for towels, table
and bed linen. This is n sort of satin
ptitch, nnd the larger letters should always be padded to produce a raised and
heavy effect. If one has plenty of time
nnd good taste ns well ns good eyesight,
the letters on sheets, napkins and towels
nmy be the nucleus of an elaborate piece
of embroidery worked out with acanthus,
flower-de-luce or any design preferred.

The Awful Strtitu Dethroned Hi*
Iteanon, and In His Wild Delirium
lie Churned IIIn Own Sun With
IlnvlnK Committed tbe Crime.
An old lawyer was talking about juries
that disagree, and he declared that per*
sedition in a jury room is not rare ami
said that usually it is only a question of
time when the obstinate juror is bullied
into surrendering.
"One case that was decidedly dramatic,
not to say tragic," he continued, "happened in Iowa about tbe time the war of
the rebellion began. My lather was the
judge. He believed in juries doing the
work tbey were selected to do, and rarely
would he consent to a disagreement.
"*'.iis was a murder trial. The victim
was a harmless German, who bad saved
ip a few thousand dollars which he kepi
in gold coin under his bed. The accused
man was a traveling watchmaker,
Against him was arrayed an exception
ally strong case of circumstantial evidence.
"The prisoner's counsel did the best be
could, but it was a foregone conclusion
when lhe jury went out what the verdict
would be. Tlie foreman of the jury win*
the owner of the principal store in the
town, a man of the name of Seth Var-
mim. It was bite in the afternoon of the
closing day of the trial when the jury
started to deliberate upon its verdict.
"The spectators lingered iu the courtroom, expecting to hear the verdict before supper time. It was in the summer,
and the weather was intensely hot. Save
Varnum, all the jurors were farmers.
They had their crops to attend to ami
were driven with work, so it was to their
interest to conclude their task and get
home as quickly as possible.
"The jury didn't come in that night,
or the next, or the third night either.
Rumors of a 'hung' jury began to float
through the town. Hot arguments went
on in the jury room. My father denied
a written request made by the jury for
its dismissal. Fie maintained that the
jurymen could and must agree on u verdict.
"Fight days passed, nnd it began to he
said that Varnum was the man who was
standing out for the acquittal of ijie prisoner. This was confirmed on the ninth
day when the jurors appeared for breakfast. Three men, side by side, led the
line, with the remaining jurors paired,
all except Varnum. He walked alone in
the rear, with down hanging head and
drawn features. At that and subsequent
meals the other jurors ignored him. They
forced the sheriff to provide a separate
table for him. Afterward we found out
that Varnum strenuously insisted upon
the innocence of the watchmaker.
" 'I can't tell you why,' said he, 'hut 1
am as certain that that man did not kill
the German as I am of the existence of a
supreme being.' And they could not
budge him.
"All this time the weather continued
hot. The nerves nnd health of the jurymen suffered under the strain. Varnum
felt the racking most of all. He was an
elderly man, nnd his son, a hoy of 120,
had started for the war the second day
the jury was out. Tho judge refused to
allow the father to bid the son farewell.
"On the tenth day the eleven jurymen
who favored n verdict of guilty divided
themselves into relays and commenced
to attack Varnum by continual argument.
While two argued with him the others
slept. Day and night they kept it up,
allowing the wretched man no sleep or
respite from their abuse and scornful appeals, if
"The end came upon the night of the
fifteenth day. It was bright moonlight,
and the grass plot about the courthouse
was covered with people gazing up at the
lighted windows of the jury room. Varnum sat by the casement, his head hidden in his bauds. Over him stood two
men. Wo could not hear their words,
hut  iTielr gestures told  what they were
"Suddenly Varnuui leaped up and
shrieked at the jurymen. His hands were
raised above his head, and his gray hair
bung about his shoulders. There was a
commotion. Pretty soon the sheriff sped
from the courthouse to the hotel and got
my father out of bed. It was midnight,
hut there wi re 1,000 people jammed in
the little courtroom. Varnum led in the
jury. None of them, looked squarely at
him, but covert glances were darted at
his face from under knitted brows.
" 'Your honor,' began Varnum, 'this
jury cannot agree. An event has taken
place which makes it impossible. I'll ere the man's voice sank, and he swayed. An attendant eased him back in his
seat. Varnum motioned to the man next
to him to tell what he could not.
" 'The reason, your honor, why we cannot agree,' said the juror, 'is because the
foreman has just told us that the murderer of the German was his son.'
"There was a pandemonium in the
courtroom. Varnum was taken home rav-
ing with brain fever. lie had told the jurymen that his son had been surprised in
tlie act of robbing the German and had
killed him. Afterward he sought his fa-
tin r and confessed. Pride induced the old
man to keep the secret and permit tlie
suspicion to fall upon the watchmaker.
"When ho was drawn on the jury, be
dared not refuse to serve, but he determined to hold out for the man's acquittal.
"Before young Varnum could be arrested he was killed in one of the early battles of the war. Three years later the
watchmaker was run over by a train near
Washington and injured so badly that he
died soon afterward. Before he died he
wrote a letter lo my father. Iu the letter
be confessed that he had killed the German ami told where he had hidden the
gold. He had not dared to return for it.
When search was made, the gold was

Peculiar     Incident     In     Connection
With a Railroad Accident.
"You see some unaccountable accidents
in railroading," said a Boston railroad
man the other day. "Some years ngo I
worked on the old Maine Central, when
Payson Tucker—God rest his soul, for
he was a generous employer and the
best of men—was manager of the line. It
was in the days when they were bringing
the road up to date, and nothing was
being spared in expense on roadbed or
rolling stock.
"One day the Boston express ran into
Waterville and after the regular ten
minutes for refreshments started for Augusta. She hadn't gone 50 yards before,
easily, gently, even complacently, the engine went off the track as calmly ,'ih
though that was the way she usually did
things. A hasty examination showed
that half of the flange on one of the forward wheels of the pony truck had broken off. They sent posthaste for another truck, jacked up the engine and
put it in place of the injured one, and
the train was soon on its way again.
Then they started to find out tho place
where the Mange had dropped off.
"The road runs across the Kennebec
just north of the railroad shops, and from
the shops to the station it is a perfectly
straight track. It was supposed that the
break had occurred somewhere on that
straight line, as it seemed impossible for
tlie engine to hold the track on a curve
with only half a Mange on its front wheel.
It wasn't there, however, and a systematic search up tho line was ordered, and
something like IJO miles away, near Newport, it was finally discovered by a track
"Up and down steep grades, round
sharp curves and across a river had that
engine run in that condition, nnd finally,
after passing through rail work to make
a sound engine shudder, it hail hopped a
straight piece of track when hardly more
than moving and when the only thing
destroyed or damaged was lime. The
fearful accident that might well have
happened, it has always seemed to me,
must have been averted by w*iut the law
would term an act of God."

It will he interesting if we compare the
status and pay of German officers of the
navy with those serving in the British
marine. A German admiral of the fleet
receives £000 per annum, a free furnished house, firing and light, £80 for carriage hire and table money nnd allowances, an additional £1100, His total income, therefore, is £ 1.580 per annum. A
British admiral on the home command
receives from £;!,-l'J0 to £11,007. The German captain's salary is £390, that of the
Englishman £410 to £0'J0. A German
lieutenant in command has £105, an English lieutenant in the same position £201
to £274. A chief inspector of machinery
afloat in the British navy has £039. in
Germany only £_-30. A British fleet surgeon has £403 to £G0'A a German £300.
It will thus he seen that the British officers, all through, are in a better pecuniary position than those in tbe German
fleet. German marine officers are usually
taken from the same rank as in England.
Before becoming a midshipman or sea
cadet, as he is called in Germany, the
youth who intends to devote himself to
the navy must be able to pass a satisfactory examination on the level to which a
fifth form hoy at an English public school
has attained. His first year's service is
spent in study aud military exercises on
shore, the study of the English language
being a prominent part of his work. He
is then placed on a training ship for a
year, and after passing a satisfactory examination he is removed to the marine
school for another year. Tbe technical
knowledge obtained here is then employed
for two years at sea, aud should the candidate for the naval profession prove
himself competent he is promoted at the
end of these two years to the rank of
lieutenant. During the first ten years of
a German naval officer's career his income falls shoi< of his expenditure by a
sum of £500; that is to say, in addition to
his pay he requires, on an average, £50 a
year to keep him. In the British service
the average expenditure of an officer in
addition to his pay is £05 a year.—Leisure Hours.
Muled of Qniillty.
It is a usual mistake, and a very big
one, to think that a mule cannot show
blood. He does show it often more distinctly than the horse. And there is no
other animal in which good blood is so
distinctly profitable. The mule from a
well bred dam may stand a hand lower,
weigh a hundred lighter than his half
brother out of a Canestoga mare, yet ns
a 2-year-old in the sales ring will fetch
half as much again, this because a wise
buyer knows that blooded mules have
even better endurance thnu blooded
horses. Reasonably well used, they are
sightly and sprightly animals at thirty
odd. Then, too, they ent less and, proportional to weight, pull more. They
are quicker, hardier, more intelligent and
of better mettle. As an offset, the intelligence once misdirected is apt to verge on
the diabolic—Leslie's Monthly.
Spanish Surname*.
Ia addition to three or four Christian
names tlie Spanish child bears tlie combined family names of his father and
mother. When the surnames are doubled,
or connected by the particle y, meaning
"and," the first is the more important
one, and the only one that may be taken
alone, for it is iu the father's name, while
the last is in the name of the mother. In
Spain they know no "senior" and "junior," Father and son may bear the same
Christian name, but each takes his own
mother's name as a distinction, the father being, for instance, Pedro Diaz y
Castillo and the son Pedro Diaz y Blanco.

"Talk about your two good suits of
clothes," said the son of a well known
Confederate army officer. "In my young
days shoes, one pair, was the badge of
the plutocrat. I came of a large family,
eight sons, and when things were going
particularly well one of us had a pair of
shoes. 1 was the youngest, so that it
never wns I. Now, you would be surprised to know the effect, mental, moral
and physical, that shoes have on a man.
I consider that my career, aye, and my
character, hinge upon the possession of a
pair. When I went to school in Virginia, just after the civil war, of course
I was barefooted. I was a quiet youth,
strong for my age, but phlegmatic, and
would put up with a lot rather than get
into a fight.
"My particular enemy in the school
was an impudent and conceited boy
somewhat older than myself. He was
the son of our family doctor, an only son,
nnd the proud possessor of a pair of
shoes—shoes of the old country type, with
thick soles adorned with plenty of steel.
Vou see, we were not utterly poverty
stricken. We had a family doctor. Vou
couldn't expect a southern gentleman to
be able to stand for a family doctor and
shoes for his family at one and the same
time. My enemy was forever tormenting
me, but I endured il silently for a long
time. At last one day my patience would
endure it no longer. I fell upon him, and
a sanguinary conflict ensued. We fought
for an hour or more. Wo fought like
windmills in a hurricane. It is true we
did not often bit one another. We were
usually too close or too far off, hut we
smote everything in sight, trees, walls
and particularly the air. Tweedledum
and Tweedledee were not a marker to us.
We managed to blacken each other's eyes
and bleed each other's nose chielly
through the contact of our heads.

He drew back and delivered upon my unfortunate bare shanks a kick of cruel
force and precision. 1 can feel today the

breast, I was for giving battle. But he
merely raised his foot, and I saw the
Hash of steel beneath the leather. The

one last despairing glance on Delia, who
was laughing, and slunk away. The horror of those shoes was upon me, and my
knees knocked together.

feet, but I was now proof against his
mulish onslaught. I took his kicks without feeling thorn nnd smote him with my
fists. Finally I got him down and choked
him until I was weary. But as he arose,
humble, bruised nnd trembling, I deliberately landed my armed feet on each of
his shins, and with a howl of agony he
turned to flee.   I delivered one more kick.

my enemy approached I called to him
sweetly, nnd he came tremblingly.
" 'Why don't you tell me to get out?' I
asked pleasantly, swinging my foot the
while, and the titter of Delia sent the
hot blood of pride and joy coursing
through my veins. What became of Delia I don't remember. But upon those

It la a Cnrloaa Fact That the Elbow
Joint Cannot lie Duplicated With
SprinuN mid lliiiK'f-N — Artificial
I.im.i-. lirlng Long Life.
Although the artificial limb industry of
Chicago is restricted to an annual output
of about 1.0U0 legs, arms, hands, feet
and parts thereof, it is as large and as
Important an industry in its field of operation as the most mammoth of the
manufacturing enterprises. The average
priee of limbs ranged from $00 to $100.
The art of making artificial limbs dates
hundreds of years befort tbe Christian
era, but modern Chicago makers are
splicing pieces and making whole Iimbl
for every civilized country in the world.
Only about 50 people are employed in
factories, but most of them are men of
decided mechanical ingenuity. In addition to the most careful adjustment of
the several parts of the joints, according to existing devices, they are constantly experimenting on models for still better results. Tbat, together with superior
workmanship, is the reason why Chicago
made artificial limbs are favorites the
world over.
The makers do more than fill orders—
or at least some of them do. They study
tbe anatomy of man so as to have a better understanding of what is required of
artificial limbs; besides, tbey keep themselves well informed of the cause of the
demand for limbs and the percentage of
one kind over another. The proportion
is ten legs or parts of legs to one of
arms. Seventy per cent of the whole output comes from employees of railways
and o per cent from passengers. Ten per
cent conies from amputations necessitated by "consumption of the bone," us they
call it, -t per cent from the army nnd
navy and 1_» per cent from miscellaneous
It is a curious fact that the elbow
joint cannot bo duplicated with springs
and hinges; hence an amputation above
the elbow causes almost a total loss of
the arm, but an artificial arm may be put
on so true to nature tbat it will deceive
completely until there is use for it, when
(be fact is made very clear that at best
it is only ornamental. But when the amputation is below the elbow the arm can
lie spliced out, and even the fingers can
be made somewhat serviceable.
While it is found that a combination of
leather and aluminium makes a lighter
and yet stronger limb, with decidedly
better knee, ankle and toe action, than
other materials, some experts still hold
that wood is the best material under all
circumstances, and they will make no
other kind. The business of artificial
limb making is called the "prosthetic industry" and means literally the process
of addieg to the human body some artificial part in place of one that may be
wanting. One who makes such artificial
parts is called a prothetician or pro-
Herodotus speaks of at least one man,
an Aleau, who procured a wooden foot to
take the place of the natural one which
he lost while escaping from a Spartan
prison. Pliny tells of a man. 107 13. C,
who wore an artificial hand of his own
design nnd construction, nnd it was so
well done tbat he could use it to wield a
sword in battle. There are the remains of
an artificial leg in the museum of the
Royal College of Surgeons iu London
which was exhumed from a tomb at Ca-
purn in 1S58. The ofitcial catalogue
says: "The leg is made with pieces of
thin bronze fastened by bronze nails to a
wooden core. Two iron bars, having
boles in their free ends, are attached to
the upper extremity of the bronze. A
quadrilateral piece of iron found near the
position of the foot is thought to have
given strength to it. The skeleton had
its waist surrounded by a belt of sheet
bronze edged with small rivets, probably
used to fasten a leather lining. The
vases found in the tomb place tbe period
at about 300 years B. C."
Since the fifteenth century artificial
limb making has been a regular industry
in nearly all countries.
Not only many doctors, but nearly all
the laity, have a notion that tbe amputation of a Jimb shortens the life of the individual, nnd also the greater the quantity of the limb cut off the greater the
abridgment of life. But statistics contra-
diet that theory flatly. By careful comparison for half a century it is ascertained that cutting off limbs—not all the
limbs, of course—does not shorten life at
all. Of the patrons of an artificial limb
factory less than 25 per ceiK die during
a term of over 40 years, and nearly every one of them died from accident or
old age, and not one died as the direct result of being short a leg or an arm. It is
claimed that there is no record of any
one, or but very few at least, who died
of pulmonary or cardiac diseases who
wore an artificial limb, except where the
disease was contracted before the limb
was amputated. However, the amputation of limbs is not recommended by pro*
theticinns as a preventive of lung and
heart troubles.
Perhaps it has never occurred to many
that the great body of wearers of artificial limbs are poor people—that is, poor
people in contradistinction to the rich.
It is very rare that a wealthy person is
seen with an artificial limb, and the reason is clear enough. It is the man wbo
works with his hands in the mill, on the
railway, in the mine, in the gangway of
the steamboat and in the other avenues
of employment where danger to limb and
life is always present tbat bas to repair
luiiisolr wiih artificial bits of mechanism
to splice out his oiuv unbroken body.
And so tbe question of tbe first Investment and the subsequent repairs of the
delicate joints is one of no little moment
to poor people, but they are necessary expenditures and have to be provided for.
It means time lost and a heavy drain upon wages for a long time. Investors have
reduced nil this to the minimum, and
competition obliges limb makers to use
the best of material and do their work
well. This is particularly true of the nn-
kle joint, where the strain is always
great and where the meclcni^uj is delicate  and   complicated.

Angular Writing Cnudnmttrntt.
European graphologists have just
laid down two new laws which will
be of interest to all those wbo believe that the personal characteristics of individuals can be discovered
through an examination ot' their
handwriting. One law is that, as
the good and bad qualities ol' a writer are revealed by the manner in
which he forms his letters and words
so it is possible for a writer to acquire virtues and vices by shaping
his lei tors and words in a manner indicative of such desirable and undesirable characteristics. For example,
a strong bar crossing" the small t is
said to Indicate willfulness, and consequently it is asserted that anyone
who desires to develop a spirit of
wilfulness need in the future only to
cross bis t's in this fashion. In like
manner generosity is Bald to be indicated in any writing in which i he
small o's are left wide open, and
consequently it is declared that the
surest way to rid one's self of tlie
spirit of avarice is to form one's
small o's in  this manner.
The second law is aimed directly at
the Style of handwriting which is
taught In Lhe schools of the Sacred
11 curt as uc-11 ;is in many convents,
both in Europe nnd in this country,
This style was introduced some years
ago by Carre, and one of its marked
characteristics is its angularity nnd
its luck of curves. According to M.
7. Iii'poin. an expert graphologist,
pupils who are taught in this way
speedily show in their writing tokens
of intellectual constraint and vacillation. This style of handwriting, he
says, tends to make pupils inconstant
and also restrains them from giving
any play to tbeir imagination, while
at the same time it is extremely apt
to foster in theni a craving for an
ideal life which is bound to prove injurious so far as I heir material prospects at'O concerned.
The Abbe I .ero,\ , who is much interested in graphology, does not
think that M. I. Depoin'fl statements
on this subject are well founded, and
he has protested vigorously against
the adoption of any law which would
tern! to bring the Sacred Heart, style
of handwriting into disrepute. "I
know," he says, "hundreds of honorable men who write in this man-
in r,"
It is wort ii noting that this is not
tlie first occasion on which t.iiis style
of handwriting lias been adversely
criticised. Brldier, the expert, who
died recently, made a furious onslaught un il some time ago. even
maintaining that those who adopted
ii were more likely to commit crimes
than other persons.
