Mrs. Bullock   Wnrkmau   Conc.-dt-d   to lie
the Champion   1 a ly Mouutain
Climber of ihe World.
Mrs. Bullock Workman is the champion lady mountain climber of lhe
world, says The London Express,
having made three successive mountaineering records for her sex in India, ihe highest being 21,000 feel.
Ih-r experiences were very interesting.
'Before I climbed Koser Gunge, my
highest and third record peak, 21,-
000 feet, the rarefied air proved io
be the most potent sleep vanquisher, and I suffered much from the
want of it. We were at 18,000 feet,
and it was bitterly cold. The stillness
was death-like, broken here and there
only by the roar of an avalanche, or
the groan of a coolie trying to sleep
under a rock. I shivered in my Bleep
bag, but worst of ail was the effect of
the rarefied nir, which often caused
me to sit up and gasp for the oxygen that was nol procurable after ell
one's efforts. I did not particularly
notice 18.000 feet when climbing in
the day, but nt night, when trying
to sleep. I found that altitude distressing. In regard
to tho effects of diminished
pressure nfter 15,000 feet, my experiences were the following: My breathing was shortened, and I had to
climb more slowly, at 10,000 feet,
nnd very slowly indeed from 18,000
f.ei to 21,000 feel, often halting to
rest. I had severe headaches at
times at 10,000 feet and 20,000 feel;
but at 21,000 feet I recall no headache. We were in a severe wind and
sleet storm for scleral hours during
the last part of the assent, and we
ull suffered from cold and exhaustion. It wns a great struggle lo
reach the top, take our measurements, nnd get down lo a point of
comparative safety; and so absorbed
was 1 about doing this that I forgot
about my physical symptoms, except when my hands and "feel began
to lose all sensation. By pounding
and rubbing them, the guide restored my circulation sufficiently for me
to go on with more safety: but it
was a wild and dangerous climb towards  the close."
Mrs. Workman has not been free
from accidents. Her most unpleasant experience of uciscon crevasses,
for instance, was on a neatly-covered
one, about half a mile long, on the
Great Biafo glacier. "Luckily," she
says, in recalling the adventure, "we
were roped, for down I went into the
bottomless pit, and before I realized
what had happened my head was
peeping out from a thick collarette
of heavy wet snow. Press out
witli you feet and riraw on the rope,'
called the guide, as he braced himself for me io pull myself up. Frantically pushing against space, held
on both sides of the crevasse by the
rope. I did not. nt first make much
headway. Finally, afler wearing my
gloves through with my hand-to-
hand struggle with the rope, I felt
myseW coming tip a bit, and soon
reached a point, where my purchase
on lhe rope was of some account,
and thus 1 at last came out of my
snowy ease. This was not. a particularly dangerous adventure, but it
dis! inctly  disagreeable."
Story of tin-  t- ur -ll:ir--ihul.
As everyone knows, the Buke oi
Norfolk's carelessness about dress
and unassuming ways are very marked and have caused him to be the
victim of many curious mistakes. My
friend had a house near Arundel, and
when she and her family w.-re removing to London the liuke contemplated
buying Hie place as a house for a
member of his family. One morning
Mrs.   was in her bedroom shortly after breakfast, when a servant
came up to tell her Unit a messenger
had called from Hie Castle. "Where
is he?" she asked. "Oh! he's in the
hall, ma'am." Knowing the Duke's
habits of activity in the country she
felt some misgivings, and hurried
downstairs to lind the Furl-Marshal
of England sitting quite patiently on
a hall chair wiih his hat in his
hands. She overwhelmed liim with
apologies, of course, but the Duke
was most amused, and laughingly
said lhat hi' delighted jn an appearance which protected him from attentions which would make his life

The Exports of 1900 Were the I.argoit to
the Colony's ijintory.
The Newfoundland eust«_s returns
for the year ending June 80, 1000,
show that the exports of ihe island
were the largest in its history, lhe
total sum being $8,o97;41A, as compared wilh $6,936,810 lhe previous
year. Brazil continues to be the
best customer of the colony, ils
purchases amounting to ?ll,008,o86,
tiie United Kingdom coming next
with $1,942,093; Portugal, 81,009,-
11:17; United Slates, $975,863; Gibraltar, $975,883 and Canada, SollO,-
137, Although sixth in the list of
purchasers, Canada heads the record
of commodities sold to Newfoundland, the importation from the Dominion having been $2,805,490; Unit,d Kingdom, $2,224,853; United
•States, $1,998,505. The totnl importations were $7,497,147, tus compared with $6,811,244 the previous
year. The great bulk of the Importations from Canada were Hour, the
value of ihis commodity alone being
$918,884. The other articles which
Canada sells to Newfoundland in
greater quantities than any ether
country are apples, sheep, beans,
butler, cheese, fresh meat, oatmeal,
fieas, poultry, eggs, hay, horses,
oat3, entile, potatoes. In most of
these articles the Dominion has a
decided lead, and is steadily drawing away from its rivals, which
shows the value, of propinquity and
ease of communication. Canada ha*
no advantage in regard to the
duties, the imposts being the same
for all  countries.
Newfoundland's lending export was,
of course, dried cod, the value in
1000 being $5,458,538. For the first
time the exports of fresh cod were
of sufficient value to be worth quoting, namely, 81,001. There is a
great possibility of expansion in the
exportation" ol fresh lish by refrigerated transportation. Let it be hoped
thai, small as this sum is, it, is the
Beginning of a great trade. The frg-
iir. s of the pickled herring industry
do nol show the re!urns that would
be desired. 'Ihe exports of copper
were 8617,015, the largest since
1892, and of iron ore $313,940, the
greatesi sum yet reached, although
ihis export will show still greater
figures for the years to come. Newfoundland appears to have keen satisfactorily prosperous and progressive during lhe year in question.
Whnt We (in, to Kins Alfred.
It is a thousand yenrs since the
death of the great Englishman, King
Alfred, in whose humble translations
we may see the beginnings of Kng-
lish literature. Until it has a literature, however unpretending and
however artless, a language is not
conscious of itsclt; and it is therefore
in no condition to maintain its supremacy over the dialects lhat are
ils jealous rivals. And it is by its
literature chiefly that a language forever binds together the people who
speak it —b.v a literature in which the
characteristics of these people are reveal'd find preserved and in which
their iil.-als are declared em! passed

great, small as was his share of action, was "the moral grandeur ol his
life.      Ile  livi ll   solely   for  lhe  g 1 of

and he started schools, wishing that
every freeborn youth who had the
means should "abide at his book until lie can understand English writing." lie invited scholars from other lands to settle in England; but
what most told on English culture
was done, not by them, but by the
King himself. Ho "resolved to

According to Tlt-Iliti There Are That
Niitnher In the British Knipire.
There are, snys London Tit. Bits,
nineteen parliaments in the British
Empire, ten jn British North America, seven in Australia, and two in
South Africa, to which might perhaps be added (though not parliaments in the same sense) the Supreme Government of India and tlie
Presidency of Bengal, which nre
both situated in Calcutta. The len
British North American Parliaments
are the Dominion Parliament of Cnn-
ada, which meets at Ottawa; lhc
Parliament of Newfoundland, which
meets at St. John's; Hie Parliament
of Prince Edward Island, which
meets at Chailottetown; of Nova

New Brunswick, at Fredericton; of
Quebec Province, nt. Quebec; of Ontario, at Toronto; of Manitoba, at
Winnipeg; of the Northwest Territories, at Itegina; and of British Columbia, which meets at Victoria,

iun parliaments are those of New

Melbourne; New South Wales, at
Sydney; Queensland, at Brisbane;
South Australia, at Adelaide; Western Australia, at Perth; and Tasmania, at Ilobart. The two South African Parliaments nre those of the

Origin of Naval  « iisl.nus.
A curious fact, not generally
known, is that the black silk handkerchief which .lack knots around
his throat was first worn as mourning for Nelson, and has ever since
been retained. The three white
stripes around the broad blue collar
of the sailor's jumper commemorate
the victories of Trafalgar, Copenhagen and the Nile. Thus the Nelson legend affects not only .link's
work, hut his food and clolhing as
well. The broad blue collar itself is
older llirin the great Admitnl. It
was first adopted at, that periotl
when sailors plastered their hair into
a stiff pigtail with grease and powder.
Al nine o'clock each night the sentry in every ship iu harbor fires oil
his ride. For the origin of this custom we may have lo look back to
Hie days of flintlocks. Then, in order to tesl Ihe priming and see that
his weapon was in usable condition,
the sentry had to lire it off each
night, There is no necessity for such
a test with modern rifles; but the 0
o'clock firing is religiously carried
livery officer or man climbing to
the quarter-deck salutes. The origin
of this usage dates back a long way.
Winn England was a Roman Catholic
country a crucifix stood on the quarter-deck of ulf ships. Every time
any of the crew approached this h ly
symbol ihey crossed themselves, Otii
of that has grown the custom of saluting the quarter-deck.
The    Annual    Report    Shows   Ihnt   This
Country In Advancing Ilupidly.
T_8 annual report on mines and
mining in Canada shows that this
country . is advancing rapidly, although many will be surprised to see
how small a place iron still holds in
our mineral production. An increase
in the production of iron ore may
now be looked for. The growth of
our mining is shown by this table:
per capita.
1886   ..._ S2.23
18(10   ..._  3.50
1898    4.09

1807    _  5.63
18(18    _     7.32
1899     9.33
In 1880 the production per capita
of Canada was less than one-third of
that of the United States; in 1899 it
was about three-fourths. In other
words, while the United Stales was
adding 70 per cent, per head to the
value of its mineral products the
Dominion was adding more than 300
per cent. 11 might be inferred that
i-f this conl inues our mining industry
will soon be as important relatively
as that of the United States. It must
not be forgotten, however, that the
increase is largely due to the placer
diggings of the Yukon. Thc proportionate value of the different mineral
products  was,   in  1899,,  as follows:

Canadian iron in Britain.
The London, Eng., Speaker says:
"The arrival in tiie Clyde ot 3,500
tons of pig iron from Canada is a
development of some significance.
Hitherto the iron which has come
into this country has been brought
from the continent and the United
States when production there has
been in excess of the demand; and
so far from importing from the Dominion we have sent it nn average
of about 10.000 tons annually. The
shipment represents the first effort
of the Dominion iron & Steel Com-
pnny to cultivate a foreign trade.
This concern is of a magnitude equal
to some of tlie largest establishments

to American brains, which wero

Being located in Canada, the company pays no duty on such of its

Health and Vitality
For tlie Old People.
Wasted muscles, shattered nerves and failing strength may
result from old age as well as from disease. As old age creeps
on vitality is lowered, the heart beats more slowly, the blood
becomes thin and watery and the power of resistance is lessened. It is the Old people above all others who require the
new life and energy which comes with the use of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food.
Scores and hundreds of old people depend on Dr. Cnase's
Nerve Food to restore their exhausted nerve force and replace
their wasted tissues. Itcalmr. and quiets the nerves, gradually
and certainly enriches thc blood and builds up the system, and
makes old people feel again the thrill of new^life and vigor in

bestowed on mankind.

Subject to Headaches, Dizziness and
Heart Palpitation, They Grow
Discouraged and Prematurely Old.
From the Review, Windsor, Ont.
"Dr. Williams' Fink Fills is the
only medicine that ever gave me any
reni benefit,:' said Mrs. R. K. Harris,
a well known resident of Windsor, to
a representative of the Review recently." I do not know exactly
what my trouble was: doctors seemed unable to tell me, though I
thought myelf it was consumption.
I had a constant racking cough, and
a constant feeling: of languidness.
Sly blood seemed to have turned to
water, and I was very pale. I had
a feeling in my chest as though some
foreign substance was lodged there.
The slightest noise made me nervous;
I was dejected all the time and could
not scarcely do any household work.
I tried medicines, but they did not
help me in the least. Doctors did
not seem able to help me or tell me
whaL ailed me, although their bills
increased with alarming rapidity. I
grew so weak, and so despondent
that finally I decided to take a trip
to Colorado to see if a change- of
climate would benefit me. While
contemplating this trip I read in a
paper one day the testimonial of a
person whose symptoms were almost
identical witli my own, who was
cured by Dr. V, illiams' Pink Pills. I
decided to give them a trial and
purchased a box. When that box
was done I got another, and found
gradually that the pills were helping
me. The trip to Colorado was
abandoned, and I continued using the
pills until I had taken eight or nine
boxes when I felt like an altogether
different person. I became the picture of health, nnd felt it too. It is
several years since I used the pills,
and I have rnit had. any return of the
trouble. I am positive Dr. Williams'
Pink Fills saved me from an early
grave, and I cannot recommend them
too highly to those who are afflicted
as I was."
It is the mission of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills to make rich, red blood,
nourish the nerves, tissues and various organs of the body, and thus by
reaching tho root of the trouble,
drive disease from the system. Other
medicines act only on the symptoms
of the disease, and when such medicines are cliscnntmued. The trouble
returns—often in an aggravated form.
If you want health and strength, be
sure the full name, "Ur. Williams'
Pink I'iils for Pale People" is on the
wrapper around each box. If your
dealer cannot supply you the pills
will l.e sent postpaid at 50 cents u

"The shag is the laziest nnd most sin-
pld form of life to be found anywhere
on the globe. It is nn aquatic fowl,
witli big, clumsy looking bonk and wilh
a form something like the dodo, now
extinct," said ti western man. "I have
spent much time in watching this fowl,
which is found in some of tbe shallow
lakes, nnd the chief point of Interest
to me was the startling stupidity displayed. They generally squat on
stumps or logs In the hike and watch
i'or the smaller fish that play around
lhe surface of the water. They nre
fairly clever in catching whnt f_«'V
went, apd they throw out their bill
with considerable precision wheu they
gig for game. F>ut they never get to
eat what they catch until they have fed
at lenst one and maybe more than one
member of another kind ot wnter fowl.
"Whenever a shag begins to catch
fish, a long legged, long necked water
hen will take a place Immediately behind him. When the shag lands a lish,
tlie water hen simply reaches over nud
gets It. Without any show of resentment and without turning around, Ihe
shng will continue Its watch for lish,
and this Is kept up until the water hen
hns fiuisbed a meal, nnd then, If no
other enterprising member of the same
tribe comes along, the sling Is permitted to enjoy tbe product of its own
sleepy efforts.
"I knve on one occasion seen one clin»
feed ns many ns three water hens before eating a single lish. It Is certainly a siugtilnr display of stupidity, and

a number of times I am convinced that
the shng Is actually too dull to even

An Alberta Man Reports His Entire
Satisfaction With the World Famous Remedy—Blood Disorder the
Cause of His Trouble—Dodd's
Kidney Pills Have Removed it
and He Is Thankful.
Rlairmore, Alberta, July ^.-(Special i—Dodd's Kidney Fills nre just as
well thought of iu the Great Northwest as they are any place else in
tin- world. The people have confidence in them. They do as they are
claimed to do.
.Nor is tho claim a small one.
Dodd's Kidney Pills are claimi-d to
cure some of the most dangerous and
deadly maladies that flesh is heir to
and what is more, they do it. The
proof is positive Thousands and
thousands of reputable people attest
For instance, every one knows
Bright's Disease meant at one time
meant the sentence of death. Does
it now ? Ask Arthur Colely, of Somerset, Man. He was cured of Height's
Disease, tlie Inst stages of it, by
Dodd's Kidney I ills.
Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure the
lesser disorders tf the human system
arising from Kidney Disease with
just as much certainty, and an even
greater promptness. Of these, Skin
Eruptions, such ns Boils and Pimples, arising from an impure state of
the blood are not the most uncommon or the least distressing. Dodd's
Kidney Pills, by improving the action of the kidneys, purify the blood,
and Boils and Pimples immediately
Walter II. A. Noble, of Blairmore,
Alberta, writes in this connection :
"I had been troubled with Pimples
nil over my face and Backache. I
tried everything to cure it, nil kinds
of medicine,  but failed
"I was told to try Dodd's Kidney
Pills and did so at once. I got throe
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills and
took one after every meal. They cured tne. They are tl.e only things
that ever did me any good. I will
always use Dotl.l s Kidney Pills in
case of sickness and advise all other
sulTerers to do so "

Fall r>lrr«t hm* For thc DUcovery of
This Sort of Individual.
I read a fable some time ago. It was
about a "piker." Hut it seems to me that
thu writer did not understand the nature
of tlie prehistoric but recently classified
piker. lie says a piker is a man who
has all his goods in his show window.
The statement is faulty in three respects.
A piker is on no occasion a man, he has
no goods and no window.
A piker is a fellow who plays a two
call five sort of n game and frequently
edges a nickel to change his luck. lie is
tlie fellow who says, 'Tut up for me,"
nnd along in the stretch of the sam_
breath reminds you that you are his debtor in the sum of twenty odd cents.
(Adam was the first piker. He would
not steal the apple, but he very willingly
helped poor Eve to eat it, and it's a safe
bet he split the fruit.)
He will regale you for hours with opinions formed upon Denver on a ono day
stop over ticket. He gets a severe headache when he takes a lady to a "European plan" restaurant. It is he from
whom you first learn that "standing
room only" tickets to the opera company
are all gone. lie thoroughly enjoys a
week stand minstrel show with "ladies'
night," but honestly lacks conception of
classical music of high histrionic art. He
can't see why he shouldn't be a two time
winner when he entered the 2:20 elasg
with a straw collar and chain tugs.
A piker is a fellow who's been up
against it—ma; who's seen things—with
pa; who's been around some—around
The fellow who Is always waiting for
something to turn up Is a piker. He's
afraid to turn over a rock looking for nn
opportunity for fear that he might find
something injurious, never once considering the effectiveness of n rock under
sneh circumstances, nor does he figure
that he would at least be one rock *hcad.
There are pikers in every line of business and every place of pleasure. The
fellows who heat the water with a fishing
pule and want to go home because tish
utui't bite; who get the hack fever on
a rainy dance night: who tell you they'll
sec you through; who "stag" it; who
drop in while yon are doing the good
to a ninuber of friends at n soda fountain
and remind you of something yon wanted
to forget; who tell you that they don't
need the money just now; who wonder
how Jones lives and where Higgins gets
his money; who are conservative or common, according to the financial thermometer; who lose a game of billiards and
tell you they did so purposely to lighten
your expense; who will borrow, but won't
hnd in a game; who won't advertise, because every one knows they are in business; who won't support the ball team
nor the churches—they arc all pikers.
The first step whiih identifies this individual is "telling the teacher;" next he
reveals your confidences; then he knocks
on you. A knocker is a most-buck, aud
mossbacks are pikers.
