Given fur General Sports.
A meeting of the business men was
held at tho Arlington hotel on Friday
afternoon, when it was decided to
join forces with tlie Miners' Union
and have a big demonstration here
on June 2f> and 20. Il is the intention
of tho Union to have a picnic, with
speaking afterwards, while the business men are raising funds to provide
suitable sports. An effort will be
made to have all the Unions in the
district attend and join in the procession and general sports. Ed Boyce,
Chris Foley, James wilks, and other
Labor leaders are to be here, and
their presence will draw a large
s;rowd. There are to be football and
b. seball matches, Caledonian sports,
and a ball in Schonberg's hall.
The picnic will be held on the
grounds just below the Y and close
to thc river. Men have been employed clearing the grounds off for the
occasion. The feasting and speaking
will occupy the main part of the first
day, while nearly all the sports will
be left as the drawing card for the
second day. Reduced rates have been
granted from all points by rail and
boat, and it is fully expected the celebration will be the best ever held

What  tbe Overcrowding of   Cap*  Tsws
Means Illustrated by a Few Grapble
Instances—People  Packed   Like
Saxslines  lss  a  Tin—When to
Tako  a   Hath—A Very
HlgU    Death
Those who look upon a picture representing Caps* Town, with its inas-a
of white houses nestling on tho
slope that begins at the margin of
the bay and ends at the sheer face of
Table Mountain would scarcely believe that the town was a likely place
for tho propagation of a plague,
writes J. Emerson Noilly in Tho London Daily Mail; all looks so nice and
clean; there is such a refreshing
whiteness about everything, and
there appears to bo no crowding. Yet,
when the visitor goes through and
inspects Cape Town, he discovers
that it contains spots that are filthy
enough to thrssw Algiors or the dirtiest town in Portugal into thc shade,
and can boast of more odors than
Cologno Itself.
I freely admit that there has been
progress in the sanitation of the
place since I first saw it at the time
when ths sewage of the town was led
to the sea by siuits, or open ditches,
that coursed through each stroct. Ad-
derley street has been built since
then, and the old "stoeped" Dutch
cottages have given placo to good
buildings; the sluits have been cover-
ed over, and I believe there is some
official responsible for preventing the
dumping down of all kinds of oflal
and refuse on the streets. There has
been progress to that oxtent, but the
fevsT dens and the slums exist still,
and thore is yet that overcrowding
that a pestilence is so fond of when
it starts out to work havoc among
a population.
Do you know what tho overcrowding of Cape Town means?
I will give a few instances that
came undsa- my observation when investigating the matter a few years
ago. Take ths houses patronized by
tho blacks, the Kaffirs, West Coasts
men, and others. Bred on the veldt,
the housing needs of these dusky fellows are not very elaborate, Each
has the sack that he wears as clothing while ho works in the day. He
brings it home, and it forms his bed
at night. A Kaffir does not mind
overcrowding, for it means warmth
to him at that cord hour disliked by
all negroes—the hour before thedawn
when his teeth chatter and his knees
seem to rattle. I was through half a
dozen or so of the negro "doss
houses," and, although in my time
I have been in some odorous places
abroad, I am convinced that never in
my life before or since havo I so
closely rubbed shoulders with ths
demon of typhoid.
In rooms designed for the accommodation of four or five human beings, I saw as many as fourteen or
sixteen, and those who were crowd-
ed out of the rooms slept in the passages, packed literally liko sardines
in a tin. These men had been working in the docks all day, most of
them dancing up and down gangplanks carrying coals for thc steamers' bunkers. They never bathe or
wash. They go early to their labors
and return late. I think I need not
attempt to describe the atmosphere
of their hovels; that may be imagined.
There are "poor whites" in Cape
Town, as there were in tho Transvaal. They, too, have their "doss
houses," and live in precisely thc
same conditions as the "niggers."
But tho odor of the white man's
houso is somewhat different from
that of tho Kaffir. Most of the uncol-
ored mlserables live a hand-to-mouth
existence, and spend their evening
hours in the low canteens. They reserve a "tlckey" (throe-penny piece)
wherewith to pay tho landlord, and
toward midnight crowd in to sleep.
They largely represent tho class who
go to tho Capo to find employment
and get stranded. They are British,
Scandinavians, Poles, Russians and
Germans for the most part, and whs>n
they toss uneasily during tho night,
mutterings are heard in almost every languago spoken on tho continent
of Europe.
So terrlblo is tho overcrowding
that it is not uncommon to find from
40 to 50 persons crammed into a
four-roomed houso such as the ordinary British laborer inhabits. Then,
tha superior lodging houses, resorted
to by others who can afford to pay
their way—some of those are moro
packed than they ought to be, for
the idea of the boarding-house keeper is to make thc most of space, and
thereforo as many beds are crowded
into a room as the room will hold.
Even tho Dutch members of the
House of Assembly go In for overcrowding. They have their own fa-
vorite lodging houses, and when they
come down from their farms to legislate, they are determined to save as
much as possible of their Parliamentary pay. To this end they sleep
two and three in a bed I
The thousands of Malays, Italians,
and others help to fill thc slums,
With the result that tho houses there
are one and all fever dens, and one-
third of Cape Town is mi ideal hotbed for the forcing of such a plague
as now lias tho placo by the throat.
Added to this overcrowding, Capo
Town is, from a sanitary point of
view, one of tho most bnckward
places perhaps in the world. True, a
new main drain-age scheme is on foot,
and it will effect much; but thnt
"much" is a deaideratuiu of th< present moment. The slums rosk, and

Tho death rate of Capo Town ia
enormously high for a place that en-
Joys such a splendid natural position; and it is a notorious fact that
the majority of deaths occur in the
slums, and that the diseases are
mostly such as are induced by filth
and overcrowding. The percentage
would be much heavier were it not
for the "Cape Doctor"—the southeasterly wind that frequently sweeps
down fiercely from Table Mountain
and blows away the germs of disease
and death that hang around the purlieus of the place in clouds. Bearing
all these facts in mind, wc must not
be surprised if the plague that is now
claiming its half-dozen victims a day
increases in virulence, particularly in
view of the rainy season now setting in. The so-called "civic fathers"
cannot argue that they were never
warned, for time and again the voice
of the social improver has been raised in the press and on the platform
in Capo Town, only to extract the
reply, "Wachteen-beitjo." It is little
wondor that the work of fighting tho

The private member will have a
chance of exercising some of his attenuated rights now that the financial pressure for the year is relieved,
and one of them is the power of moving resolutions on Tuesday evenings.
With the exception of a few Wednesdays devoted to bills, this Ib practically the only opportunity he now
has of registering the opinion of the
House on any question he may bring
before it. Tha privilege is naturally
a much-prized one—for which they
would like to enlighten tbe House —

by which the precedence of members
is decided.
Every Tuesday afternoon members
who Wish to take part in the ballot
put their names on the list at the
table. These are numbered, and the
chief clerk, who acts as master of
ceremonies, writes the numbers on
slips of paper, and shuffles them la &
box Just in the same way as the
names of horses and blanks are arranged in a Derby sweepstakes at a
club. This operation having been
completed, the clerk, pulling back the
sleeve of his gown to show that there
is no deception, pulls out a number
and announces it. The Speaker, reading from the list, calls out the name
of the first prize-winner, who thereupon gives notice of his motion for
that day four weeks. There axe other
prizes for those who are second or
third, but as the first motion generally lasts the whole evening, they are
not of much value.
And there is always the possibility
of "count out," unless the question to
be discussed is a particularly burning one. Of late years, owing to
the immense inroads which the Oovernment has made on the privileges
of private members, "counts out"
have been as rare as swallows in

when they were quite common. In order to keep a quorum together a
member who had tho first place for a

Lady Henry Bentinck Is as good ma

as she is both fair and virtuous. At
the lost drawing room held by Queen
Victoria this blonde flower of the
North Countree came to kiss her
sovereign's hand and, dim though
the good Queen's eyesight was, she
promptly commented on the fair
loveliness of her youthful subject. It
is said on good authority that as
Lady Henry went by, the Queen,
turning to the Princess of Wales,
said, smilingly: "If I were young \
would ask that pretty woman to become a member of my household, and
have her portrait painted, as Mary
II. had Kneller paint her court beauties. It Is a delightful thing, my
dear, to have sweet and handsome
women always about one."
Perhaps the present Queen bore her
predecessor's good advice in mind,
for her court ladies, as chosen so far,
are all fair to look upon, and Lady
Henry Bentinck has been commanded
to serve in the great coronation celebration. In appearance this lady
is a rare and very exquisite blonde,
delicate of feature and possessed of
a uniquely perfect throat. About her

which is the family name of the enormously wealthy dukedom of Portland.

A curious Incident—.->traisger   Leaving It
One  Sunday Said   It Was   the Tiniest
Church,   With the   Shsirtest  Parson,   the   llrlt-resst  Text, and
the   Smallest   Collection
He Ilisd l'.ver Seen.
Many years have elapsed since, ln
a shower of rain worthy of the district, we descended from the Sty-
head Pass and gained the welcome
shelter of tho Ritson roof-tree. It
was then we learned that we were
gazing on "tho smallest church in
England;" also that three years'
contributions to tho collecting-bag
amounted to less than two shillings
in all, and we were filled with awe.
The samo night the subject cropped
up at table d'hote. The assertion
was made and promptly contradicted
—the smallest church was undoubtedly in the Isle of Wight. That
niivjht the assertion was again made,
and liko a lightning flash came the
contradiction—tlfe smallest church in
England was undoubtedly in Sussex.
Had wc had a month to spare we
would have remained at Wastdale
Head and made our collection at
Now the church at Wastdale Head
is said to be 42 feet long by 18 feet
wide, which gives an area of 672
square feet, a sitting accommodation
for fifty or sixty persons, and the
lie to those who insist on it being
the smallest church in the Kingdom,
for Lullington Church, in Sussex, is
easily smaller, as its total area ot
256 squaro feet and its accommodation for thirty people at the utmost,
together with a very large pulpit,
proves. Lullington, it may be mentioned, was once owned by Sir Philip
Sidney, who was lord of the manor,
and the village is mentioned in the
"Doomsday Book;" the church,
moreover, is really the chancel of a
much larger building destroyed in
the Cromwellian era. A stranger
who formed one of a congregation of
twelve, who listened to a diminutive
preacher deliver a sermon, having
taken as his text the thirty-fifth
verse (consisting of two words) of
the eleventh chapter of St. John's
Gospel, remarked on leaving the
building that it was the tiniest
church, the shortest parson, the
briefest text, and the smallest collection (eighteen pence), that had
ever come within his experience, but
then he was never at Ventnor before
tho Church of St. Lawrence was restored.
Beforo tho late Lord Yarborough
added ten feet to tho chancel, a new,
porch, and a bell-turret to this
building, the Isle of Wight edifice
was undoubtedly the most diminutive of our churches, and is often
said to be the smallest to this das/
by loyal but untruthful natives, but
the restoration added 120 square
feet to its area, which now amounts
to 360 square feet, or 104 square
feet more than the Sussex church,
and 30 squure feet less than the
"smallest" church that stands on a
hillside, 400 feet above sea level,
overlooking the Bristol Channel at
C ul bone, noar Porlock in Somersetshire.
We had Imagined that we had ar-
rivs'd at the real and only "smallest" church when we added Lullington to our collection, but a paragraph in Tho Pull Mall Gazette regarding the Devonshire home of the
new Governor of Now Guinea elicited the statement that Brent-tor
owns thc smallest church, not only
in England, but in Christendom, and
our hearts sank within us until we
discovered that the Tavistock
church, which is said to havo been
litiilt by a merchant who, overtaken
by a storm nt sea, vowed to erect a
church on the first point of land he
saw, was 37 feet by 14t feet, which
givos an area of 530} feet; not until we discovered that the merchant,
though ho did his best, hod failed to
usurp Lullington of the right to be
regarded as the smallest of the
small, did wo with a sigh of relief
brealho freely again. As Brent-tor
has an altitude of 1,100 feet, which
made it come in useful in days of
yore as a landmark for sailormcn
entering Plymouth Sound, and as
thc Church of St. Michael de Rupe
stands near the summit, it can afford
lo smile—to laugh would be unchurch-like—at the pretension of
I'addlcsworth in claiming the "highest ground."
'ihe lath and plaster church at
Hazelelgh, Essex, with its ten pews
only; the parish church of Frlnton,
in the same county—It was at Frlnton that Captain Bushell, the wreck-
searcher, and Cornelius do Tulbury,
"who could poison with impunity,"
resided—gave us a scvoro fright lest
(hey should bo moro diminutive than
our Lullington edifice, and re-open
the oft-discussed question; but although no actual figures are forthcoming, wo believe they are no smaller than tho churches at Wotlon, near
Lolth Hill, and Warllngham, in the
neighborhood of Croydon, both of
which edifices are larger than tho
Sussex church.
A small church that has not many
champions Is that of St. Peter's,
Cambridge, which is situated on tho
Castle Pise. As its length is 25
feet and its breadth 10 feet, with regard to area It comes In order of

that their size is diminutive, we
know but little. Tho two first named parishes, we learn, contain but
twenty inhabitants apiece, and of
the latter church it ts said that M

This article would be incoinplcto if
we failed to meatlon that the parish
church of Cranford is said to be the
smallest church in Middlesex, or that
Nicholaston parish church, near Ox-
wich Bay, Glamorgan, though its
length is but 47 feet, cost between
£0,000 and £7,000 to restore, and
is now the most elaborate church
for its size—it will accommodate a
congregation of fifty—in the principality.
Of a church that once stood at
Hollington, near Hastings, Charles
Lamb said it was so tiny that it
seemed dropped by some angel for
the use of a hermit. No edifice of
like character exists to-day, at all
ovents in England; but the Black
Forest can boast of a Kapelle 12

Even to the non-bibulous there is
something novel and impressive in
the spectacle of a vast underground
world "peopled" with millions of
bottles of champagne, on tho contents of which a lleet might float,
and where thousands of pounds'
worth of wine run in the gutters as
little regarded as so  much   water.
These underground "temples ot
Bacchus" are seen at their best under the Old World town of Epernay
or the Roman architecture of Khoims,
where the corridors, hewn out of tho
solid rock, stretch in all directions
for miles, and where the floors descend one below another, like the different levels of a mine, to a depth of
140 feet.
Along these miles of corridors are
stacked hundreds of thousands of
bottles of wine, undergoing the processes of refining and maturing; and
a walk along them may be as
fraught with danger as to cross the
lino of fire in a battle; for at any
moment a bottle may burst and hurl
its fragments at you with something
of the force of shrapnel.
Into these vaults hundrods of
workmen disappear at 0 o'clock every
morning, only to emerge into the upper air 12 hours later. Unfortunately, the conditions that aro best for
the wine are almost as uncomfortable as ono could conceive for the
human population of tho vaults. All
the year round, whether in tho
height of summer or thc depth of
winter, a uniform temperature of 45
degrees must bo maintained; and the
air is so saturated with moisture
that It runs in rivulets down the
walls, and the screens which separate the cellars are heavy with it.
In the damp, dark corridors behind these screens are men whose sole
duty it is to rum. tho thousands of
bottles, one by one, and give them
a slight shake, so as to dislodge any
sediment that has formed; and this
process, probably tho most monotonous and under thc conditions of cold,
moisture and darkness, tho most
dreary that falls to tho lot of working man, is repeated hour after hour
and day after day for a whole lifetime.
An expert worker will turn as
many as 60 bottles a minute and
maintain this rate for ten hours a
day, handling 36,000 bottles ln a
day's work. Is it any wonder that
after years of monotonous drudgery
these men develop all kinds of
strange moods and fancies? They
become gloomy and taciturn, and
got tho strange.it ideas into their
heads. Some of tbem persist that
thc vaults are haunted, and profess
to sea eyes glaring at them from obscure corners and figures flitting past
them—possibly tho eyes of men who
have turned bottles before them, and
cannot refrain from revisiting the
haunts of their earthly days.
But naturally all the work In these
underground worlds of Bacchus is
not of this lugubrious description,
for here a small army of mon and
girls are engaged in cooking, putting on the tinfoil whish makes the
bottles so pleasing to the eye, and
The corking Is done at the almost
inrrs-dible rate of a hundred bottles
an hour. The bottles aro handed in
rapid succession by a boy to the
"disgorger," who with marvellous
dexterity whisks out the corks, discharging any sediment that may
have collected, fills them up with
champagne, and passes them on to
the corker. Tho corking has for
many years been done by machinery,
the machine seizing tho cork, compressing it to tho proper size, and
pushing it into tho neck of the
bottle. The bottles are then ready
for the girls, who put on tho finishing touches with tinfoil and labels.
As may bo oxpected, theso processes, i--pertally that of disgorging,
aro not free from danger, for at this
stage a bottle of champagne may be
as risky a thing to handle as a live
bomb, and accidentia more or less
severe are fairly common. It is estimated that at Rheims alone £10,-
000 worth of champagne is waistcd
every year through the bursting of
Although these hundreds and thousands of workmen aro allowed a practically unlimited supply of ordinary

many as three bottles a day, it is

In an article on Lord Kitchener a
London Daily Mail war correspondent writes:
You cannot defeat tho Doer by calling him names. He runs away and
glories in it. You cannot got near
enough to call him a coward, nor
would that epithet sting him to the
fighting point. It is a part of Brother Boer's tactics to run, and ho
makes us run after him; it is a part
of the tiring out process, and tho
dominating maxim of the outlying
commando is:
"Who light and run away,
Live to fight with Delarey."
Kitchener knows this, and where
another general might havo been
covering sheets of foolscap with general ideas for surrounding and capturing the flying burghers. Kitchener
ia steadily and calmly removing to
well-guarded centres tho means of
flight. Firstly, the burghers must
have food—so wo are bringing the
food ln. Then thoy must havo
horses, so the country from the Or-
ango to the Crocodile is being denuded of horses. Tho horses must
have forage, and the forage of the
country is stored or burnt. Imagine
if you can Kitchc*ner's task. Think
of the enormous tract of country
over which our operations ore extended, and you will realize to somo
extent that in Pretoria is tho only
possible general for the work in
hand—a work that demands better
generalship than would be required
of the commander of an army corps
in a European war.
Contrast the position of the General Commander-in-Chief engaged,
say, ln a war against France. He
would have under his command several compact army corps moving in*
an area restricted by the boundaries
of neutral countries. Little strategy
would bo called for, for except in thc
event of a general European conflagration there is no room in the future for purely strategical movements. Certain recognized positions
will be held or token, and tho rest
will be a matter of tactics. The
General's orders to his Lieutenants
could be made known from one end
of the country to tho other within
a few hours; ho would be in touch
with tho enemy, whose position and
strength would be as well known to
him as his own. His work would
consist in supervising the Generals of
divisions, in whose hands would bo
left the disposition of thc forces.
In South Africa Kitchener In tbo

He runs everything and knows everything. Ho has divisions, brigades
and columns moving in all directions
over an area not less than 300,000
square miles, and he knows the
whereabouts of every one. He has
some columns that are 250 miles
from any railway line, and as far
from tolegraphic communication. His
grasp of detail is perfect. He knows
how many Cape carts Hcnniker's column has, and ho is aware that there
are three sick Yeomen in hospital at
His attitude toward his subordinates is peculiar, for he values man
only as a more or less perfect machine, and the more porfect ho Is thc
better he treats him. Kitchener has
no use for fops of any sort, but ho is
not so prejudiced by appearances as
to order a man home because ho
wears an eyeglass, as somo people
would have you bellovo. Indeed,
some of his best officers have an affection for the monocle. If his manner were translated into words it
would run something liko this:
"I am your superior oflicer; you
have taken service under me, and tho
world will judge you according to
your progress. I have great power
ent.rusrt.ed to mo by the King through
his Parliament, and whoever you
are or whatever position you fill in
the l <clal world I can mako or mar
you. I want you to do your duty,
and your duty is to do aa you're
told. If you do as I bid, you shall
have all tho credit for the success in
obtaining which I used you as an
instrument. If my plans miscarry I
will tako the blame—unless lt miscarries through inefficiency. I don't

oi*". who will lead their comrades up
to the cannon's mouth and roduco
the strength of their regiments accordingly, but steady men who will
tako cover and shoot away obstruction from thc shelter of a nice convenient boulder,"
Nor does Kitchener spare himself,
as tho rocent chase of Dewet testifies. If ho is not at Protoria 8-itting
at the end of a telegraph wire ho is
somewhere down tho line seeing
things for himsHf, and Dewet had
not been long in the colony befon.

One of the most interesting features
of the English army life presented to
the liiyii.vn in India is furnishs-d by !
tin* renin rkahlu efficiency of the elephant Brigade, most highly developed
through tlio* skill of tho Burmese in
handling tlio giant animals, says Tha
lUgiincnt. Their usefulness in India
run scarcely be imagined by one nut
familiar with the amount and variety
of work which they accomplish, but
it would bfl a serious mistake to im-
ugiuu that this degree of usefulness
is attained through any aptitude ol
the unwieldy animals or natural ten-
(leney toward it. It is duo solely
and entirely to the wonderful ability
ul tho natives in training the hugs
animals and overcoming their natural inclinations. This cannot be
too highly praised. Neither must it
be imagined that tho use of elephants
in army life is not attended by great
disadvantages, not tho least of which
is tlio difficulty with which they a™
transported. Naturally tho elephant is not an intelligent animal,
Ho can be taught remarkable things,
in which his strength and endurance
play an important part. IIo can
never, however, perform theso feats
without continual attendance and direction. Abstractly, his power of
work is unapprcciablo; when directed
by skilful hands, however, it is remarkable
The transportation  facilities which
aro provided for the sole use of   ths
elephant are quite as remarkable. I
witnessed  recently,   adds  the  writer,
the loading and detraining of a   lot
of elephants on the Madras Hallway.
Doth were remarkable processes,   i
loading a   rope   is   fastened to   for*
foreleg, and a lot of natives haul oni
pull at     it to induce the animal to
take    the     first steps  into the car.
This  is  only accomplished,  however,
by admonishing    him in  the haunch
by mi'ans of a tusk.    Tho first    step
taken is rapidly followed by tho oth-
ers until he stands safely on tho car.
This     portion of tho task is accomplished   comparatively   easily,     however,  when  ComPSJrcd  with  tho next.
At first    ho     la    timid and slightly
frightened,   but  when   tho car start"
his     fs*nr     is    wonderful  to behold.
Though lie may risle a hundrs'sl times,
ho never overoomes this fear, though
it is much more pronouncs-d when he
takes his initial ride afti'r, say, two

Standstill.     In   transporting  the  elephants  by seiv the difficulties aro almost   as great.    They  are raised by
means  of  a  canvas  sling  from     thst
wharf to the ship,  struggling to escape and  reiisling  the nir  with  their
cries.      Once     aboard ship they arc

From tho Sun. Orangeville,  Ont.
In every part of Canada are to be
found grateful people who cheerfully
acknowledge that the good health
they enjoy is due to the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. In the town of
Orangeville there are many Buch people, among them being Miss Lizzie
Collins, an estimable young lady who
resides with her mother in the east
ward. Miss Collins' cure through the
use of this medicine was recently
brought lo the attention of the Sun,
and a reporter was sent to get the
facts from the young lady. Miss Collins cheerfully accorded the interview
and her statement is given practically in her own words: "Two years
ago," said she, "I became so weak
that 1 was forced to take to bed.
Five illness came on gradually ; I
found myself much run down, suffered
from headaches and was as pale as
it was possible for a living person to
be. I used several medicines, but
they did not help me. Then I consulted a doctor, and he said that I
hod scarcely any blood, and that my
condition was one of danger. Medi-
cino did not seem to do me any good
and 1 found myself growing weaker.
I reached the stage where my heart
kept palpitating violently all the
time. The headaches became contin-
ous, and my condition one which
words can scarcely describe. I really
despaired of getting better, and
loathed the sight of medicine. I hail
bean confined to bed for about two
months when one duy a friend called
and urged me to try Dr. Williams'
Fink Fills. I told her I bad lost
faith in all medicines, but she was
apparently determined I should try
the pills, for she brought me about
half a box she had bes*n using herself. I could not then do less than
try the pills, and when they were
usi*d, while I cannot say that I felt
much better, I had more confidence in
the pills nnd got half a dozen boxes.
Before these were gone there was no
doubt that they were rapidly restoring me to my old-time health, as I
was soon able to sit up and then be
around and out. I used in nil eight
or nine boxes, and before these were
gone I felt as though I had never
hud an ache or pain in my life. That
iswhat Dr. Williams' Pink Fills did
for me and I think I would be very
ungrateful if I did not nd-d my testimony for thc benefit it mny be to
some other young girl."
Miss Collins' story should bring
hope to many thousands ssf other
young (*irls who suffer as sbe (id.
Those who are pale, lack appetite,
suffer from headaches, and palpitation of the heart, dizziness, or a feeling of constant weariness will find

Here is the latest story about King
Edward VII. Its authority is so
good that I have little hesitation in
believing it, while I do not think
it has yet appeared in print, writes
the editor of M. A. P. When the
King paid his recent visit to Germany, he was particularly enthusiastic about "motoring." It was just
about that time, I believe, that he
gave thc order for the automobile
which a well-known Paris maker has
just built for him, and which is exciting so much interest among Parisian automobilists. Anyhow, he took
thc opportunity which the quiet German country and forest roads offered
to indulge in the exhilarating pastime. One day he was driving with
a gentleman through one of the forests near Wiesbaden, when the automobile ran out of water. Of necessity
a stoppage occurred, and for want of
a convenient water company the boiler was filled from a wayside spring.
The King and his companion started
again and all went well for a while.
Then for some unaccountable reason
the car stopped again.
An inspection was made, and the
King's companion, who is an expert
in such matters, went to work in
technical exploring fashion. The King
stood rendering assistance when he
could. Dut everything seemed right;
no bolts were loose, no nuts missing,
and not a lever jammed. "That's
very funny, Your Majesty." The King
agreed and pondered for a moment.
Then he smiled. "I wonder," he e-ug-
gosted in tentative fashion, "if that
water we took in has anything to do
with it. You know these German
waters generally have some sort of
mineral properties in them. The
boiling may cause crystallization
and so choke the piston." The piston
rod was immediately inspected, and,
sure enough, it was so crusted that
for all driving purposes it might as
well have been heavily coated with
rust. Sand-paper was used, some un-
odultsrated water found; the journey
wus continued and completed without
further stoppage. Evidently the King
sras not the intimate friend and informal pupil of Flayfair ln vain—although little has been given to the
worhl of thoir association save the
well-known fact that it was at Play-
fair's request that tho then Prince of
Wales scooped up boiling lead ln the
palm of his hand—a perfectly painless experiment when properly carried out.

plumber and tinsmith, of this town,
should be put prominently bef*ore
every union and non-union man in
Canada. In a matter like this there
should be no distinction, tho benefit
belongs to all.
John S. Morgan for eight years
was hampered in his work by back-
uclie. Stooping continually at work
is the cause of a great deal of backache, though not in the way most
people imagine. Mr. Morgan's letter explains the truth of the matter
when bo says Dodd's Kidney Pills
cured his backache. It was really
Kidney ache that Dodd's Kidney pills
cured. It was really Kidney ache
thut troubled Mr.  Morgan.
Backache is the commonest symptom of Kidney Disease. Kidney Disease is the commonest of human uil-
ments, nnd Dodd's Kidney 1'ills are
the one infallible cure for all Kidney
diseases. Head what Mr. Morgan
says about them himself.
"I have been subject to lame back

Ther Are the Only Birds, Excepting
Ostriches. That Can. Kick.
Although the cassowary in captivity
has the reputation ot being extremely
tractable nnd docile, he is terrible when
A noteble peculiarity of this bird Is
that if any particular object attracts his
attention he will perform a sort of war
dance over it. This happened at the zoo
when one of tbe cassowaries, which are
confined in cages near the main entrance,
lighted upon a gaudy piece Of ribbon
binwii inside the bars from the hat or
dress of some woman visitor.
He was one of the smallest of the collection, but he was of a martial disposition. After having carefully examined
•he ribbon he started his war dance and
kept it up with great vigor for some minutes. Just while he was at the height
of his enjoyment a larger cassoway cams
up and interfered with him.
He stood this for some time, but when
the larger bird attempted to oust him
from the spot in order that he In turn
might prance about the ribbon he re-
ss*nted the intrusion in no uncertain style.
Kicking out vigorously on all sides,
craning his neck, snapping his beak,
elongating his body and hitting Imaginary
blows with the horny mass which cassowaries carry on thc tops of their heads
and which is called the helmet, he seemed to bid defiance to all comers.
The larger cassowary, thinking apparently that he could treat the demonstrations of the lightweight with contempt, commenced hustling the latter.
The two were ill matched as regards
height, one of them being about five feet
high and the other a foot or more shorter,
but the battle which ensued showed that
weight and height will not always tell.
Forward kicks were the main feature
of the fight. The cassowary, it is believed, is the only bird, except perhaps
the ostrich, which uses this method of attack and defense, and the way a cassoway can kick would warm the heart of
a French boxer. He can kick straight
out like a man, or he can do the high
kick like a music hall star.
At first the blows were delivered chiefly on the breast ond didn't hurt much,
but eventually the small bird kuocki'd the
other one out with a masterly stroke delivered by the long sharp claw of the inner toe on the wattles of its antagonist.
No fatal Injury was done, but the
shock must have been terrific, for the big
bird uttered a peculiar cry and retired in
confnklbn to its corner, while the victorious one resumed its war dance. It also
had been severely punished, and one
could almost imagine it saying to itself,
like Mr. Henley:
Beneath the blud&eonlngs of 1st.
