Problrm of Immunity.
Trof. .T. J. McKen~ie of the University of Toronto lectured at the Canadian Institute on Saturday ni_ht on
■ 'Reoent thooi ies in regard to tho
causes of immunity to infectious disease." He sketched the history of
our knowledge of immunity and said
Ehilich's observations have shown
that the conditions which determine
the death of a microbe introduced into the blood clapend upon the presence of two substances, the first of
which is specific and acts only upon
tho spot.ilie. microbe, the other of
whi h is common to Ihe blood of
most animals. The, practical endeavor of bacteriologists has been not
only to Increase the amount of specific substances which has proved
r tii ly easy but also to Increase tho
amount of the iion-specilic substance
which SO far has proved difficult.
These observations have shown also
ihat the question of immunity is of
much broader bearing than the mcro
question of prevention or cure of infectious disease, bemuse it is evident
from the results so far obtained that
il has a bearing upon the whole
question of the nutrition of the animal body. THE   PIIOSPECTOI?, LILLOOET, li.C, AUGUST 29. 1003.

Harquis of Salisbury
As IhU) ns the yen- 1898 il wns
stilted Ity leinliiig'iueiiiberH of the
ii]i|io.site purl v in -'-iigliiii-l, Mint
Lord tSnlisin ry could secure an
almost unanimous vote from the
English people it' they were to
have a plebiscite to elect a man
lo inaniige thee oinitry's liiisiness
abroad. This wns a remarkable
position for any mnn to occupy.
Eb.iniglit well call forth lhe constant reference to the subject of
this sketch its the "First Englishman of the Day."
In tlie Marquis of Salisbury,
Mho passed away on llie afternoon of August 22nd, England
had a statesman who, lirst and
foremost, believed iu England, in
Englishmen, and the Empire
which they founded. He, although
a younger son, with no expectations of help from his family, was
able to work himself up from a
gold digger's log cabin to the oflice of Prime Miuisterof Britain's
world-wide einpire, and believed,
with a quiet, calm conviction, in
ultimate triumph of English endeavor.
Dut -mch enthusiasm for England had ils defect. While Mr.
Gladstone could champion the
cause of Greece, DulguHanuil It
nly, while Mr. Dright could grow
eloquent on tlie qualities of our
American cousins, the Marquis
had uo enthusiasm for any bul
ihose who followed England. , ll
was ti. genuine enthusiasm for
England founded on fail li in England's increasing influence and u-
bilily to lead Ihe nations.
Among the most important reforms effected by the lamented
leader, are lhe following:
The radical red istri nu tion of
seats in 1884; the formation of
lhe London County Councils and
other county councils, in which
representatives, chosen by tlie
vote of male and female householders, govern the counties; the
1888 I ree Elementary Education
Act: lhe passing of the Ashbur-
Ion Act for Ireland. These refer
lo domestic affairs of ihegovern-
meiit of which t'ie Marquis was
the head. To merely mention
the reforms effected iu the foreign
policy of England under Salisbury would lie here impossible.
Salisbury abhorred lhe use of
physical force to enforce Imperialistic demands, lie u set I I o declare
I hat he was "an ul ler unbeliever
that anything that is violent will
have permanent success." And
again he said: "All the greal triumphs of civilization in lhe past
have been iu the substitution of
judicial doctrine for llie cold,
cruel arbitranieiit of war. We
have got rid of the duel between
mail (Hid man, and we are slowly, as fin- its we can, substituting
iirbit ration for si niggles in inter
national disputes."
Gladstone's tribute lo Salisbury
will be long remembered: "Ile is
not at till governed by political
ambition. I believe him to be
perfect ly honest, and I cannot
think of Iii in  unkindly"
Such a life makes politics pure.

Jn the dry  belt, and at an altitude (hat renders the seasons temperate and equable,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers.    Semi-tropical fruit may be grown, and

The ancient smelling furnaces are
sti'l easy to loeognize, They are sunk
into the floor. The furnace blowpipes
are made of the finest gianile-powder
cement, and the tinzdis of the blowpipes are covered with s 1 shes of
gold. 1l\2 linings of tho holes are
covered with s eels of gold. Wleu
the first lining became worn •by the
heat, a f esh lining of cement of an
excellent quality, which hns outlasted time, wus smeared around on top
of Mie old lining. Ore can take au
old lining, s. lit off the layers with
a knife and find gold splashes in
tn.w Aiu-i.-iits AVasl.il  ..n'.l.
Apparently the arcients wasted
gold lavishly. Colli Ins I.e-.n found
in large quantities in the form of
pellets as large us bud shet in the
vicinity of the furnaces, and nl o
thrown awuy on the debris heaps
ouUide of the old .Vtihlings.
The tools of the ancient workers
whiihhaveso far been discovered include a small soapstono hammer and
burnishing stones of water-worn
rock, to wli h gold still adheres.
There are e idenics thnt the ancients

the manufacture of gold or uments

An   Interesting   Paper   Head   Ilefore   tha
Colonial   Institute.
In his paper, "The Canadian West
and Northwest," which was read ie-
cently ut the meeting of the Royal
Colonial listitute, London, Mr. W.
Albeit Hickman said he did not believe that the American invasion involved the slightest danger to JSiit-
ish interests. He hud the pleasure
of going north in the Saskatchewan
country with a special train containing 166 American cal italists to buy
Canadian land. The tain wns placarded "Special Train of the Saskatchewan Valley Land Company,"
which conipany bought, no loss titan
one million acres of land. He had
studied the invading army carefully
nnd it impressed him that the majority of them appreciated Itrilisli
institutions, und became good Canadian citi,ens witli great rapidity,
lie looked upon this investment of
many millions of American money in
Canadian lands ns but the forging of
one mote chain in the ulreadj existing informal alliance—tho Anglo-
American confederation. Figures led
him to the inference that in 15 years
the United States would nol be exporting one bushel of wheat. All
would be required for home consumption, and her wheat lands would
all be under cultivation. The United
Kingdom might then look to getting
her wheat supply from the Canadian
plains—and much of her supply of
meat and dairy produce also. Some,
of them who were in that room
would eat bread made from Hour of
wheat grown in the valley of the
Peace Uiver as sure as day was day.
Last year the Hudson Bay Company
sent a 810.000 roller Hour mill i"to
Fort Vermillion on the l'eace River,
and for all he knew some of them
might have eaten bread from theie
Unexplored Canmln.
You need not go to Af. icn to fin 1
unexplored territory. There is a lot
of it on thin continent. An attache
of the Canadian geological survey recently d siovered a new liver, 800
miles long, emptying into Hudson
Day. He discovered several new
lakes also. Knough unmapped territory remains to moke its exploration worth while for thus- ambitious
seekers after new things who do not
want to hazard a trip to the north
pole. TIIK   PIJOSl'J-CTOIt, LILLOOET, B.C.; AUGUST 29. 1903.

In an n])|)ie iaiive sketch of Mr.
l'hil May, lhe famous curiuonist and
humorist urtisl, M.A.l'. leils the following:—ill'. .May's friendliness with
"ihe force" is of old standing, and
theie i.s hardly n policeman in his
ciistrict who ilues not think of him
whenever any very funny expedience
is encountered. Only the other day
a constable accosted the urtisl in
the street to tell him a "good story
for Punch." A moment or two Inter
a second bobby came on the scene for
tho same purpose, and, turning round
a corner in St. John s Wood, Mr.
May found himself supported on
either side by an eager raconteur ill
blue, lie then como face to face with
a lady of his acquaintance, and, as
ho tells it himself: "She looked at
me with such sympathy and an expression that so plainly said, 'Don't
make a f*iss, better go quietly with
them,' thut oven the bobbies hud to
smile at the situation!"
The " DoUyville" Drawings.
The series of "Dottyville" drawings in Punch is well known to Mr.
May's artist, fiiends, one of whom
brought him a letter from nn inmuto
of n an well Asylum, whicli said: "1
greatly resent those sketches. You
apparently do not understand your
subject, for you have drawn the head
of an idiot and labelled it a. lunatic.
Vou ought to know the difference,
but you don't—and I am not surprised, for, although 1 have never
seen you, 1 am very familiar with
pictures of you, and in all drawings
and photographs I have noted that
yours is the head of an idiot." Mr.
May records against himself the fact
that, having proceeded thus far with
the letter, a listening friend who did
not mean to be uncomplimentary
broke in: "Oh, the man who wrote
that letter was no lunatic," a remark that naturally upset the gravity of the party and covered the
speaker with confusion,

An Island rut-.ti in Mice.
There is a small island named Papa
Little, that lies in St. Magnus Bay,
on the west side of Shetland. It gets
nis name in contradistinction to Papa Stour, or the Big Papa, another
Island in the same bay. _'o:h names
are of Noise origin, and signify
Priest Islands, from the fact that
they were coloni ed by the Irish Catholics who first introduced Christianity 'I here was a solitary tro't
on this island at one time, but all
that now remains is a ruined homestead, for the place is used purely
for gracing purposes. A striking
featuie of the isles is the fi.ct that
no mice can live there, and on various occasions, to lest tho truth of
this, mice have been caught an 1
slipped on thi; isle, but so uncongenial did its soil prove to their existence that in a short time they
were dead. There aie in tunes of
crofters on the mainland, when
troubled with mi e, going the len^-h
of fetih'ng earth from this isle and
sprinkling it on the ground before
building their stacl-s. This is said
to have had the desitcd elect in all
Lawyers the Best Abused and Most Trusted of Men.
The    third    of    the   public lecture
course of McMaster University,  Toronto, on "The Ethics of Law*' proved most entertaining and instructive,
many of those present coming   away
with a very different opinion of somo
phases of the profession  of law  and
its practice to thai, which  Ihey    had
before the lecture.    Mr. D. E. Thomson,   ICC,   desc. ilied   lawyers   as    at
once the best abi'.sac!  nud  lhe   most
generally   trusted   members     of     the
community.       Ho analyzed the business    of     the ordinary law firm,  of
which not more thnn  2 per cent,    i.s
criminal, and of the balance not more
than 10 per cent, ever comes to trial
in  the  courts,   while  in   four-filths  of
the cases  which  do  reach   the courts
there  are no appeals  entered.    The
nature of his business nncl experience
made the lawyer consefvalivo in   ru-
gard   to      changes  in   the  law,   und,
commenting upon what is sometimes
termed  the slavish  adherence to precedent in the law.    jUr. Thomson insisted  nothing could  bo more revolutionary  and   dangerous  than  departure from this practice,    in  this connection   he laid down  three cardinal
jiiiini. lis    for    guidance:—(1)    That
law i.s better than justice; (2) that it
is more necessary the law should   bo
certain  than that it should be light,
and (3) that equity administered according to the .Judge's personal idea
of right and wrong would result, in a
cross between lottery and despotism.
Mr. Thompson illustrated tho manor- j
ous points he made by amusing an- |
ecdotes    and    entertaining     reminis- !
renc_s,   which   made  the subject      of j
"law" anything but dull.
