Farmers' Institute.
At the meeting of the Farmers'  Institute  last evening the
the following is the  address, in
part, of  President .1. 0. Harris:
Whilst  our season's  work is
still fresh  in  our  memories  it
has seemed to me that  we cannot do better  than  spend  part
of our time at the first meeting
of our institute   this  winter  in
reviewing    the    various    crops
that   we   have    attempted   to
raise in this neighborhood.    My
object is to open up a discussion
on each crop,and on the methods
we employ both in growing and
in marketing it; therefore, after
dealing with each separate crop,
we will stop and compare notes
and  results, so that we may be
prepared to do better in   the
future.    If the members of this
institute enter into the discussion, as I hope they will, it will
take several evenings to review
all the crops, and such a review
undertaken annually will greatly
improve our methods  and substantially  increase the returns
we receive from our labor.   I
propose to deal  with  the vegetables in the   order   in which
they are  ready for market and
with fruit and  other crops in
some later paper.
1. Rhubarb—This should be
one of our chief crops and also
one of our most profitable ones,

This makes them tough and is
a danger that we cannot well

Slocan Board ol Trade.
At -Silverton yesterday afternoon a preliminary meeting
was held with the ohject of
forming a hoard of trade for
tho Slocan mining division.
| Delegates were present from
Slocan, Silverton and New Dearer. Sandon Three Forks and
Rosebery were not represented.
Wm. Hunter, M.P.P., occupied
the chair, ii was unanimously
decided to form u hoard of
trade representing the Slocan
mining division. Provisional
officers Were elected as follows,

an  sunoly. /^t j«,
to grow aiul*SV)iut <in the market. We make a tremendous
mistake in allowing any rhubarb to he sent inhere, as we
can grow it just as well and almost as early as elsewhere in B.
C, and by compelling our merchants to send outside for their
supplies of rhubarb we start
them on very bad habits and
destroy their confidence in the
home producer. I>y forcing
rhubarb we can even supply the
early market, and it is not diffi-
cult or expensive to erect a
building expressly for the purpose and I have been told that
it, is a very profitable venture,
the heat in some of the modern
rhubarb-forcing houses being
supplied by an oil lamp.
But apart from the question
of forcing rhubarb, ourattempts
to supply till! Slocan   with rhubarb last year were very feeble.
I had a lot of plants but these
were in a neglected  and  worn
out bed  and  so  old   that  they
failed to respond  to the work
and manure we gave them last
spring.    I had  also  dug up another bed  and   had   broken   up
some of the crowns and had replanted    them   but   these   were
too young, so that  my crop was
far smaller than it   has been for
years, and there was very little
grown elsewhere in the district.
Next year the lied I  set out last
fall should do well, lint I believe
I should   have  done   better   by
growing some  vigorous  young
plants to  set   out   rat her  than
breaking   up   old    crowns.    In
marketing rhubarb we should
do well to adopt some standard ,
sized rhubarb boxes and  stick
to the one sort so thai our customers may  know  what to expect.    I   believe thai   11   rather coming winter wi

Turnips are grown to some
extent, but we do not begin to
supply the possible market and
it is certainly one of the most
profitable of crops and an easy
one to grow. The white turnip
is the earliest bulky vegetable
we can raise and it comes in
just as the potatoes are beginning to get very poor and tremendously expensive. I believe
that two or three tons of (white
turnips, could be sold during
July and early in August ill the
Slocan. and they should be followed by a supply of early sown
swedes. All such bulky vegetables are very acceptable at
the mines, whilst early potatoes
are over three cents a pound.
The white turnips can he followed by a crop of swedes for
the winter nutrket, and wo
should make a point of selling
only the late sown turnips for
the winter market! a turnip
that has weathered the heat
and endured the drought of
summer is a tough and woody
customer and a few of them
will ruin our repnlal ion, so let
us feed any of our carl\ sown
turnips that chance to remain
over to the cattle rather than
try   to  sell   them.    During  the

The Duties of Best Man
"Does the best man have the wedding ring and when does he hand it
over." The best man has charge of
the ring and usually piaces it in a
pocket of his waistcoat. According to
the ritual of the Episcopal church, the
ceremony of placing it on the bride's
linger follows the plighting of the
troth. After the bride and groom
have both repeated this after the minister the book of common prayer prescribes that they shall again "loose
their hands, and the man shall give,
unto the woman a ring."
The best man Bhould therefore give
it tu the groom nt this juncture. In
churches which -1" not have a printed
ritual tho minister would indicate the
proper moment.
It is proper lo send a present to
the bride at any time after the day
of the wedding lias been set ami made
known to the friends.

cup of tea; others think better in
the evening or last thing at night.
Our power to think appears to depend on the quantity of blood circulating in the brain, and any device that
will increase j,he flow of blood to
the head will usually enable us to
think better.
Everyone knows from experience
that the brain is not at its best after
a heavy meal. The explanation of
this is simply that all the available
blood in the body is drawn from the
brain and the extremities to help in
the work of digestion.
For the same reason we can usually
think best after a period of fasting,
and it is known that clerks do better
work before lunch  than afterwards.
The late Prof. Mayor, of Cambridge,
when engaged on liis latest book would
occasionally go without food for a
day or more at a time, and for several
years before his death his food cost
him no more than twopence a day.
Prolonged periods ol sleeplessness
produce a sensitiveness and irritation
of the nerves, or, as the doctors call
it, a state of hyperaesthesia; which is
frequently tavoraOic to mought. Some
people can think only when walking,
and others only in the noise of streets
and crowds, or with the buzz of conversation all around. But most people require silence and solitude.
Opium and morphia, in moderate
doses, cause mental excitement of a
peculiarly pleasurable character,
which is always followed by a period
of intense depression. The opium or
morphia habit, once acquired, is almost impossible to break.
Both tea and coffee stimulate the
nervous system and the circulation.
The heart beats more quickly, and
this causes the blood to circulate more
,rapidly through the brain. We drink
tea because we know from our own
experience that, whatever the doctors
may say, we do feel more lively and
energetic afterwards. But when tea-
drinking develops into a habit, as it
often does, it brings indigestion, loss
of appetite, and nervousness in its
train. ,
The use of strong coffee at night is
well known to students who are compelled to cram for examinations; for,
although the coffee does not increase
their intellectual capacity, it makes
their brain cells more sensitive for
the time being.

Housework Drudgery
Housework is drudgery for the weak woman. She brushes, dusts and scrubs, or is on her feet all day attending to
the many details of the household, her hack aching, her
temples throbbing, nerves quivering under the stress of
pain, possibly diz/.y feelings. Sometimes rest in bed is
not refreshing, because the poor tired nerves do not permit of refreshing sleep. The real need of weak, nervous
women is satisfied by Dr. Pierce's Favorite Inscription.

Why should we read fairy stories
with marvelous happenings when there
are such occurring In real life? The
Imagination is not capable of creating
tbe possibilities that occasionally occur
among persons who are made of deal]
nnd blood and have souls. What Imagination a century ago in a long stripling llllnolslau could detect the leader of the greatest political crisis tbe
world bus ever known? And In the
acquisition of wealth, what more won
del-fill development In fancy than the
Btory of a real Mexican peon who came
into an Income of $10.0(10.000 a year"?
In a town of northern Mexico.
In au adobe house lived an old man.
Pedro Alvurado by name, u peon, who.
with his Indian wife, worked and
saved till be bud accumulated $100
Wltb the money the couple bought a
piece of land on the top of a rocky
bill near by the town In which tbej
Why they put their hard earned savings in this barren and not very accessible summit and continued to save
and to pay $40 a year taxes on It when
tbey needed the very necessaries of
life Is not known. It Is possible that
the wife, having been an Indian, bad
beard a tradition banded down from
her forefathers that there was a treasure buried there.
Be this as It may. there must have
been some reason for the old couple
putting all their money In a barren
rock, and this view Is borne out by the
fact that old Alvarado. having willed
his purchase to his son nnd three nephews, called upon the former to swear
that be would never part with his Interest In It. When we remember that
this legney bequeathed to young Pedro was supposed to be worth but
$25 we cannot but assume that his
father must have had an Inkling that
Its value was much greater.
After the old couple died the summit
of the barren rock was not divided
among the heirs, but l;ept as one property. Then came men who believed
that there might be silver under the
rock. They had plenty of money and
were ready to risk It In an Investigation. They offered the heirs a Inrge
•um for the property, and Pedro's cou»-
ins were willing nud anxious to sell.
But Pedro, true to his oath, refused to
part with his share. In vain the other* begged him not to stand In their
way of taking advantage of the offer.
Pedro stood firm. But after awhile a
friend loaned him the money to buy
out his cousins' Interest and make the
Investigation as to what tbe property
One day men began to work on the
top of the hill with pick nnd shovel.
A month passed and nothing but ordinary earth nnd rock was dlsplnced.
The cousins came to see nnd Jeered at
Pedro for a fool. But Pedro hud been
loaned sufficient money to pursue his
investigations to the end nnd worked
on. Another month passed and yet another with the same result Then one
day In a twinkling all was changed.
A vein was struck Indicating that the
Palmilla mine, us it was called, was
the richest silver mine that had ever
been opened.
And now this story takes on a wonderful change. Pedro Alvnrndo, son
of a Mexican peon father anil an Indian mother, belr to a beggarly estate
supposed to be worth but $23, suddenly Bprlngs Into an Income of $30,000 a
day. The fairy waves her wand and
tbe adobe hut In which Pedro was
born Is changed Into a sumptuous palace furnished from the manufactories
of tbe old world. Money without limit Is given away, thrown away. Whatever tbe sliver king fancies he buys.
Those In his employ are loaded with
It seems to be the desire of nil men
to live in a palace, for all men who acquire immense fortunes build such
structures to live In Nevertheless
their abodes are typical of their origin. Pedro built his palace, and when
he got It finished and furnished It was
wonderful to behold, especially In the
Intlcr respect The furniture all came
from abroad. The most costly bedsteads, chairs and cabinets were shipped from Paris: rugs cninc from the
orient, nnd Pedro, Instead of walking
on the wooden (lour-or, more likely,
the dirt floor—to which he had been
accustomed, sunk In the soft substances manufactured by Persian
But the most curious freak of this
suddenly enriched man was n mnula
for pianos. His palace was filled with
them. They, too. came from those factories where the most skilled workmen were employed In their building.
nnd their mechanism was encased In
the most cosily woods, often beautifully Inlaid. They were In bis parlors. In his living rooms, bedrooms—
anywhere, everywhere where there
was room for them, and room In Pedro's palace was abundant
Singularly enough but one selfish
motive guides this suddenly enriched
man. The rest are all altruistic. He
is besieged by persons eager to buy
bis mine, or If they cannot do that at
least a part of It. By selling and
permitting educated business men to
work It the income cnuld be greatly
Increased,     But   no    argument   no
amount of cajoling, could move toe
man who bad sworn he would not
Then It was represented to him that
by certain simple business reforms be
mlgbt himself make bis mine pay
more largely. All the ore taken from
It was carried down tbe hill on mules.
Wby not build a little railroad for the
purpose, which could be operated at
mucb less expense? "But w*hat would
those do who now make their living
by driving tbe mules?" asked Pedro.
Tbe simple business scheme Is refused. Wastefulness continues. The
owner's employees draw Immense salaries, and bow mucb tbey steal besides does not appear, except In the
opulent manner In which they live.
Will the mine always stand this
waste, this drain? Will there not
come a day when the vein will run
out? And then? Well, then the sliver king and those who are sucking
bis wealth will collapse
Among them all there Is one who
foresees such u result. Pedro's wife
bad drudged as a peon until tbe mine
was opened. She remembered that
part of her life and had no desire to
returu to It. Why not from this river
of wealth on which (hoy were floating
turn aside something to support them
In case tbe fountain should dry up?
And so she did. Instead of putting
away a few copper coins at a time as
her father-lu-law had done with which
to buy his rock, she took $1,000 bills
and hid them. For years she stored
away these bills. No ono knew that
they were being bidden, no one knew
their hiding place. Tbe waste, tbe extravagance, the money sueklug by employees, relations, dependents continued, but evejy now and again tbe former peon woman hid away a thousand
dollar bill
True enough, what Senora Alvarado
foresaw at last came about The
eartb taken out of the mine became
less rich. Instead of producing $30,000
a day It produced but a few hundred
dollars to the ton. All It was worth
must be paid lo those who carried It
from tUe mine Into the vulley and for
getting the sliver out of It Pedro bad
seen his fortune loom up almost in a
night; now he saw It sinking rapidly
away. Then to crown his loss water
appeared in his mine.
Water is tbe great danger, the great
trouble when it comes. In mining. Tunnels must be built, expensive pumps
must be put In. either one or both.
Pedro had but one business Idea In
his head. That was to bold on to his
property. But now even that idea had
ceased to be practicable. His mine
was no longer valuable unless worked
on business principles, and Pedro was
not a business mum
Since there bud been nothing put
away, bo there was nothing when the
end came. The man who bad given
away and wasted millions now found
himself -daalilw lo «iw- dV Waste a fly
longer. It wns tbe old story of the
fairy who had raised palaces and other luxuries for the pauper, by muttering another Incantation caused them
to vanish.
Then Senora Alvarado, who had
been tucking awny thousand dollar
bills very conveniently, died. In distributing her effects a maid who had
been a long while In her Bervlce was
asked If there was anything that had
belonged to her mistress she would
like to have. She said there was an
old quilt the senora had always used
which It would gratify her to possess.
The beloved woman had slept under
It for many years and would never let
it go out of her own keeping Surely
this would be a treasured souvenir.
But Pedro remonstrated against the
faithful servitor having nothing but
an old quilt mucb worn and not over
clean. He urged the maid to name
something of greater value. She, bow-
ever, clung to the quilt and would not
be comforted without this nrtlcle so
Intimately associated with her mistress.
Now, Pedro was aware that bis wife
bad not sympathized with him In tits
extravagance; Indeed, she bad repeatedly warned him that he would come
to grief by it. Knowing this he wondered If the good woman had not put
something away for a rainy day. The
eagerness of the mnId to possess the
quilt caused him to suspect that something might In' hidden in It Instead
of giving it he began to rip it Out
came n thousand dollar bill, flipping
on he found another, nnd so. ns Pedro
bad grown fabulously rich overnight In
finding sliver under n rock, he now
gained a fortune In nu old quilt He
took out 800 thousand dollnr blllB-
qulte enough to soothe him for the
running out of his mine nnd to enablo
him to live handsomely for the rest of
his days.
Pedro Alvarado yielding to the Inevitable turned over bis mine to others.
Some Americans are tbe new owners
and are working It on modern principles. Meanwhile the owner lives on
the Income of tbe 800 otie-tbousnnd-
dollar bills that were successively saved up by his more farseelng wife In
tbe old quilt through a long term of
There Is an unexplained feature In
this story that, appealing as It does to
tbe curiosity, Is the most important
part of It Why did the senior Alvarado put nil tbe little money he had
In the rock that covered tbe mine,
and why did he pledge his son under
onth not to Rell It? The only possible
solution seems to be that some Span-
lards yenrs ago prospected In the region and from the trend of veins of
silver found suspected that the top
of the bill In question contained the
same metal. This may hnve been
known to the Indians nnd been handed down from one generation to another That tbe hill contained the immense trensure that Pedro Junior discovered no one could have known. This
must nf necessity be one of the remarkable freaks of fate.

As to some products of tbe farm,
there is a dlffereuee of 40 to fiO per

receives and tbe price that the consumer pays. There are even cases in

800 per cent. Part of tbe loss is due
to n bnd system of retail distribution,

Indefatigable African Explorer Obeyed His Restless Spirit and Went
Over Vast Stretches of Wild Territory—Did Much to Stamp Out
Cannibalism in Uganda and to
Place Settlers  In the Country.
The scene was a river bank in
wildest, woolliest West Africa. A
canoe was moored to the side, and
its owner, a square-shouldered little
Englishman, was being hauled by
savages to their villages. There was
a feast toward, and. suspecting hs
appetites of his captors, the little
man was thinking to himself. "Well,
whoever else may make the after-
dinner speeches it is certain that I
shan't." For he quite expected that
he himself would lie the dinner.
Hut now. the natives had captured
him to the intent that he night be a
guest and not one of the dishes, and
they set him down in a place of honor
and bade him cat.    He ate.    The titbit of the   feast  consisted  of   a    red
paste, of decidedly  agreeable flavor.
"What is it?" asked the prisoner.
"Man,"   he  was  answered.
And  it was.    They bad caught, one
of their failing kin, had smoked him
over a  hre  of  reeds,  and,  after cutting uj> his flesh and mixing it with
palm oil and pepper, bad served him
up in tb.' manner aforesaid.
i    Th.' guest was Sir Harry Johnston.
Twenty years afterwards he  attended
as  a  guest   of   honor   at  another   Af-
' rican feast; hut this, time the menu
was in French, and the feast cooked
after  French  methods,  by  sable gentlemen in  a   rafment of  fig-leaf.
i    With the former feast in mind, we
may   say   that   Sir   Harry   ha;   something of the African  in him, and he
j will not 'deny  the  soft impeachment.
But the  two  contrasts  afford  a  very
i good  epitome  of the   history  that  he
j has helped  to make  in  Africa.    The
■ progress  which  he  has  helped  to ef-
j feet is incredible.    Still, how he ever
I got to Africa at all must be as great
I a   mystery    to    most    people   as   tlie
presence of   the  fly    in    the   amber.
For no hum   seemed    by nature less
qualified   for   the    rough-and-tumble,
the  peril    and    privation   of  African

probability of his painting his way
to glory. Suddenly his health failed.
He seemed to have a wretched constitution, and he had over-studied with
his painting, his gr.-edy reading, hi.-
frenzied devotion to the mastery of
He was sent for his health's sake
on a tour through Francs, Spain and
Portugal; and a latent, unsuspected
instinct for travel now asserted itself. Instead of returning to his
studies, he threw in his lot with a
French expedition to North Africa,
and when he did come back it was
to launch out with a notable series
of articles on Tunis. This was :n
1880, prior to which he had never
earned a p. nny. And then he was
anybody's man for a time; bis career
becum; a matter of great uncertainty.
With his health improved, bis soul
cried out for action; he could not
face tbe prospect of years of study
at Cambridge, so he threw himself
into natural history and biology, toiling away at the Zoological Gardens
under expert guidance until he became a first rate naturalist and anatomist. All unconsciously ha was

alien,arus to reap tne uaivc.-t. Not
a particle of lis nrtii ic training has
been lost, nothing of bis tulent for
languages lias lic-n wasted, nothing

At about this time Lord Mayo was
planning a West African expedition,
and he needed a man who could
speak Portuguese. Johnston was the
man. He hud mastered Portuguese,
French, Spanish, Italian, and, if you
please, Arabic. He wus pining for a
chance such as this, for, though he
bad not yet absorbed black man, his
trip to the Dark Continent bad set
his blood dancing with the zest for
travel in that mysterious land. Once
you have been you always desire to
return, while youth keeps your muscles supple and your heart undHunt-
ed, So off he went with Lord Mayo's
expedition. The party compassed its
purpose and returned, but Johnston
stayed on. He determined to wrest
the secrets of the Congo from that
mighty river, iin-.l off be went alone,

"Mr. Stanley, I believe," he one
day said, varying the historic formula,
when to his great joy he ran across
the camp of Livingstone's discoverer.
Stanley took to him at once. Two
wonderful little men they must have

Stanley, like Gordon and Johnston,
was a tiny man. Together they explored the untracked purlieus of tho
splendid river, and when Sir Harry
returned to England he wrote a book
which maiL- him famous at the age
of twenty-live. Hi work caught the
eye of the ftoyal Society, who placed
him in command of their scientific
expedition to Mount Kilamanjaro.
On his return Lord Salisbury sent
him off as Vice-Consui to the Cam-
eroons. Here he speedily succeeded
to the chief post, and was launched
at last on his great official career.

A Reminder of the Fearful Alpine

A broken alpenstock bearing tbe

has. the Loudon Chronicle says, just
been found by a Cbamonix guide In
the ice of the Glacier des Bossous,
which "flows" down direct from tbe
summit of Mont Blanc to the valley

bad tbe descent commenced when tbe
snowstorm started, and not one of tbe
eleven climbers was seen ugaln alive.
A strong force of guides some days
later found the bodies of live victims,

Tbe truth of tbe matter Is tbat all

When Elizabeth Gray returned to
Elmwood after a year spent with an
uncle in a distant city, she found few
changes in tbe quiet village. Tbe morning after her arrival she lay contentedly In the slant roofed little room lliat
bad been bers since childhood and
listened to the familiar music of hnm-
mer and saw from tbe distant shipyards.
Just then wood smoke reminded her
jnat ber mother was getting breakfast In the klteben and wltb a pricking
of remorse at ber slothfulness, Elizabeth arose and dressed.
"I thougbt tbe waMles would arouse
you, Bess." smiled her mother, as tbe
girl entered the kitchen, flushed ani
aparkling. "Here is tbe flrst batch-
take tbem in and begin your breakfast.    I"-
"Mother mine!" scolded Elizabeth,
leading the rosy cheeked, plump little
woman Into tbe diuing room. "Sit
right down and eat breakfast wltb
dud. 1 shall cook waffles tor both ot
you.   Not a word!"
She smiled back nt tbe two loving
faces as abe passed to and fro from
kitchen to dining room ministering to
their wants.
"We can't expect to keep ber with
ns always." sighed her mother. 'This
last year without ber has shown me
bow dreary it will he for us when—
somebody takes her away."
"By 'somebody' 1 suppose you mean
Norman," boomed Mr. Gray's deep
voice. "I don't know as there's another man in Elmwuud. to say nothing
of tbe outside world, tbat I'd rather
give my little Bess to than Norman
Ryder. I'erbaps she has met somebody else in tbe city—you can't tell—
and Norman's only country bred. Bess
probably met some line dandified
cbaps in New York."
"I'd rather It would be Norman." Insisted Mrs. Gray, with a little frightened flutter in her voice tbat went
straight to Elizabeth's heart. "1
couldn't bear to have Bess marry anybody from the city. We might not see
her from one yerr's end to thej other."
Ellzalicth hastened into tint dining
room with a plate of waffles scorched
to a crisp and ber fair face flushed
and agitated.
"I've heard every word , yon said."
•hecoufessed between tea rs^jnd laugh-
'ietT'^-ueirts, I'm not golni^to marry
anybody. 1 haven't seen any one In
New York tbat could tempt me away
from you/'
Mr. (/ray squeezed tbe little band
she bad laid In his broad palm and
looked quizzically into her blue eyes.
"How about anybody lo Elmwood.
Bess?" he asked.
"I don't want to marry anybody!"
flashed Elizabeth tearfully, "i want
to stay right here all my life."
That evening Norman Ityder drove
over to see Elizabeth Gray, and such

tbat he who had always found favor in
her eyes, now appeared to be awkward
and provincial In manner and speech.
as compured to the showy youths she
bad met when visiting her uncle. Although he was bigger and broader
and handsomer than any of tbe city
bred youths, almost the first words be
ottered seemed to place him In a different class.
"8o you knew 1 hnd returned, Norman?" she asked, withdrawing her
bands from his close grasp.
"Yes. yes!" he had cried delightedly,
and it was that characteristic double
affirmative uttered wltb a slight twang
that drew a thin veil of discord between them. There was something
about the expression that smacked
strongly of the rustic; that, with the
twang and the equally favored double
negatlre. "No. no!" seemed to place
Norman Ryder nmonc the fanners nnd
dairymen who formed the community
about Elmwood.
Elizabeth hated herself for shuddering every time Norman spoke with a
twang, but she couldn't help It She
was angry with him ror speaking sober father did noi, nor did any of their
neighbors. It was carelessness on
Norman's part, und It grated on her
"I thought perhaps you'd answer
my letters." he said rntber ruefully,
ns he drew his chair near the glowing
stove, "but I expect you were pretty
busy studying your music. I'm going
to ssk you to play some nf your classical pieces for me by nnd by"
"Of course I will." snld Elizabeth. "I
didn't write to anybody here except
father and mother, nnd they said"—
she paused wltb sudden confusion.
"I guess they said I came over here
most every night while you were
gone!" he grinned happily. "They let
me read your letters—and that was
next best to getting 'em myself."
"I didn't promise you I'd write."
protested Elizabeth, rather stiffly.
"No. no!" he uttered quickly, exonerating her from blame. "But—but
—I kind of thought you mlgbt answer
one of 'em. nnd so I kept on writing."
"I was glad lo hear from you. and I
suppose It was menn of me never to
answer any of them, but dla mother j
give you the messages I sent?"
"Yes. yes!   And that was something!"  |
He looked so happy and so handsome j
that Elizabeth had to harden her heart i
against the magic of his dark eyes.

she  grew  to  counting  the times  be

When Elizabeth asked him if she
) should play for Inm Norman said
i "Yes, yes!" and when she asked tf
j be had bad enough music he cried
I hastily "No. no!" until ber nerves
I were all a-Jangle.
At last he arose to go. and there
was a very tender look In his dowu
bent eyes as be lingered bis bat.
"There was something I wanted to
say to you, Bess. I wonder if 1 better say It now? I guess you know
what It Is." He looked steadily at her.
Elizabeth did not hesitate. She was
angry wltb him for bis rustic ways
and provoked nt herself because she
was too narrow uuniled to overlook
"1 don't believe you better sny it."
she said deliberately, her eyes on tbe
small shoe tbat tapped Hie carpet.
His face whitened underneath the
bronze, and there was n stricken look
in his eyes. "1 hardly dared to hope
much since I heard you were coming
borne, but before you went away"—
He choked a little and asked ber a
question, "Will you tell me why,
She looked tip at him with a strange
hardness in her heart. "Uo you really
want me to tell yon7" she asked.
"Yes, yes!" be sold eagerly.
"That's It, Norman Ityder!" she flashed. "It's your BulTiiin county twang
and your everlasting 'yes-yes' and 'no-
no,' and you know better too!"
He stared at her, bewildered for
a moment, and ns the Import of her
words struck home he reddened deeply
and all the tenderness Med from his
eyes. "So that's the reason?" he snld
gratingly. "Well. Bess, there's no
chance for me, then, because If yon
don't love me enough to overlook a
mere habit of speech you don't love
me as mucb as I want you to. 1 suppose I don't shine very brightly compared with the city fellows you've met,
but I've loved you better tban anybody
else In the world ever could." He
crammed on bis nat and wltbout another word left tbe bouse.
Elizabeth stood alone In tbe parlor,
her eyes fixed in a frightened stare on
the closed door, ber heart pounding in
unison wltb Norman s departing steps
on tbe crisp snow.
It was bright moonlight, and scores
of young people were coasting down
the steep bill tbat ran past the Grays'
home. Elizabeth heard their shouts of
laughter and the frequent warning cry
of "Koad!"
The gate crashed Into place behind
Norman's Impatient swing. There was
tbe roar of a coming bobsled, a muffled thud and then shouts of distress.
Elizabeth reached tbe front gate at
the same time ber father and motbei
hurried to tbe same place, drawn by
the sounds of an accident.
Somebody bad been run down by the
bobsled—somebody who lay, a dark
motionless figure against tbe whiteness
of the snow. Around bis head the
snow was stained a crimson tbat widened and widened horribly.
It wbb Norman Ityder, and when
Elizabeth reacbed bis side a little
group of men were lifting him from
the snow.
"Bring him Into my house." commanded Mr. Gray, leading tbe way,
and so tbey csrried blm across the
doorstep which he bad left In anger a
few moments before and bore him upstairs to the front chamber.
A doctor was summoned, nnd while
Mrs. Gray prepared bandages and other necessaries ber husband built a
roaring fire In the fireplace, and Elizabeth sat cold and numb beside that
still form on the bed. Her bands rig-

mother laid on bis forehead above the
bandage that covered the deep cur.
Her eyes were fixed on tbe while set
features and closed lids und tbe finely
chiseled lips which mlgbt purt no
more to utter tbe homely dialect of
the country which she had despised
and ridiculed.
She could not weep. She could only
sit there, a miserable, heartbroken little figure, bating berself for her censorious words,
The doctor came nnd waved her
aside. Kor an hour be worked over
tbe young man, while Elizabeth sat In
her own room breathless nnd despairing. Then at last she heard him go.
Ing nwuy, and instantly she was at
the door of Norman's room Her
mother smilingly beckoned her within
and left tbem alone together.
Norman, looking very pale, his head
swathed In bandages, did not see her
come in. For a tnoiuent she stood
there looking down at him wltb her
heart In her eyes.
Suddenly he looked up at her. smiling whimsically In the old way, ns he
had been used to do before she told
him the unpleasant truths. He had
looked tbnt way when he was a boy
growing up and she was a little girl
trotting to school beside hltn.
"Doctor snys I'll be all right In a
day or so." he smiled. "But I'll have
to keep still. You don't mind my being here In your house, do yon, Bess?"
"No, no!" she cried, dropping unconsciously Into the vernncular of Biiffnm
county. Slit slipped to her knees beside the bed and leaned her sunny
hend against his shoulder.
Norman quivered and then laid one
hend on h»r head. "Oh, Bess! You
don't menu It! Do you love me'/" he
"Yes. yes!" sobbed Elizabeth. And
to them both It was tbe sweetest word
*n tbe world.

From a manuscript in the Jesuits'
College at Quebec the editor of
"Hocnelaga Deplcta" took the following account ot this quake:
"On the 5th of February, 1663. about
half-past live in the evening a great
rushing noise was heard throughout
the wnole extent of Canada. This
noise caused the people to run out
of their houses into toe streets, as if
their habitations had been on fire;
but instead of flames or smoke, they
were surprised to see the walls reeling backwards and forwards, and tiie
Stones moving, as if they were detached trom eacn other. The belis
sounded by the repeated shocks. The
roofs of the buildings bent down, first
on one side and tnen on the other.
The timbers, rafters and planks cracked. The earth trembled violently, and
caused the stakes of the palisades
and palings to dance in a manner
that would ha--e been incredible had
we not actually seen it in many
places. It was at this moment every
one run out of doors. There were tu
be seen animals flying in every direction, children crying and screaming
in t"ie streets; aim women seized witu
affright, stood Horror-struck with the
dreadful scene betore them, unable to
move, and ignorant where to fly for
retuge from the tottering walls and
trembling eartii, which threatened
every instant to crush them to death,
or to sink them into a profound and
unmeasurable abyss. Some threw
themselves on their knees in the snow,
crossing their breasts and calling on
their saints to relieve them from the
dangers with which they were surrounded. Others passed the rest uf
this dreadful night in prayer, for the
earthquake ceased not, but continued
at short intervals, with a certain un-
Mltiiing impulse, leseniDliug Ule
waves of tne ocean, and the some
qualmish sensations, or sickness of
the .-toiimcn, was felt during the
shocks as is experienced on a vessel
at sea. . . . The violence of the
earthquake was greatest in the forests, where it appeared as if there wus
a battle raging between the trees;
tor not only their branches were destroyed, but even their trunks are said
to nave been detacned from their
places and dashed against euch other
with inconceivable viuience and confusion, so much so mat the Indians
in their figurative manner uf speaking, declared that all the forests were
drunk. The war also seemed to be
carried on between the mountains,
some of which were torn from their
beds and thrown upon others, leaving
immense chasms in the places from
whence they had issued, and the very
trees with which they were covered
sunk down, leaving only their lops
above the surface ol the earth; others
were completely overturned, their
brunches buried in the earth and the
roots only remained above ground.-
During this general wreck of nature
the ice, upwards ul six feet thick, was
rent and thrown up in large pieces,
and from the openings in many parts,
there issued thick clouds of smoke, or
fountains of dirt and mud, which
spurted up to a very considerable
height. The springs were either choked up or impregnated with sulphur—
many rivers were totally lost, others
were diverted from their course and
their waiers were entirely corrupted.
Bome of them became yellow, uiners
red, and the great river of St. Lawrence appeared entirely white as iar
d .vii as Tadousac. This extraordinary phenomenon must astonish those
who know the size of the river, and
the immense bixly of water in various
I parti, which must have required such
I an abundance of matter to whiten it.
In several places, as towards the
i mountain behind Quebec, the thundering noise and trembling motion
continued successively for a considerable time. In others, as towards Tadousac, tlie shock continued generally
lor two or three days ut a time with
much violence. As tar as it has come
to our knowledge, this earthquake extended more Uian 6UU miles in length
und about 300 in breadth. Hence,
ldu.OOO square miles of land were convulsed in the same day at the same,
"The circumstance, which appears
the most remarkable of all, regards
the extraordinary protection of Divine
Providence which has been extended
to us and our habitations, for we
have seen near us tiie large openings
and chasms which the earthquakes
occasioned, and the prodigious extent
"I country which has either been
totally lost or hideously convulsed,
will,out our losing either man, woman
or child, or even having a hair of
their heads touched."
We might add another circumstance,
and that is, that the narrators of the
above anticipated the sensationalism
of our "yellow" journals by two and a
half centuries.
What the British Chancellor Saw Here
Ten   Years   Ago.
In view of the widespread attention
which Canada is now attracting among
all classes ill Great Britain, says The
Standard of Empire—the investor, the
prospective emigrant, the sportsman,
and the tourist—and also of the approaching Imperial Conference, a coo
respondent draws attention to an interesting fact. Among the public men
of Cabinet rank of this country whi
have visited Canada and have borne
witness to its suitability for the settlement of the British race is to bn
numbered the present Chancellor ol
the Exchequer. Ten years ago Mr.
Lloyd-George formed one of a party
of three delegates from Wales who
were invited by the Canadian Government to visit the Dominion, and
we take from a copy of a report subsequently published the following
opinions recorded by the right hull,
gentlemen   and   his   friends:
"The greater portion of our tima
was spent in Manitoba, the Northwest
Provinces, and British Columbia.
The agricultural districts visited were
Brandon and Rapid City, in Manitoba; and Whitewood, Cannington
Manor, the Moose Mountain, and the
unsettled portion north and west ol
it; and Kcgina, in Assiniboiu. The
samples we saw of the 'No. 1 Manitoba hard' wheat convinced us thai
there is no country better adapted
for grain growing. . . Of the country which we actually saw we cannot speak too highly. These district!
offer great and generous inducement!
to settlers. The land yields good
crops without the necessity of manuring. Taxes arc light, laws are equitable, administration is pure, institutions are free and liberal, educational
facilities are excellent (a school being provided by Government in every
settled district within three miles ol
furthest homestead), railways are enterprising (in fact, the energy and
public spirit of all the railway companies, trom the Canadian Pacific
Railway downwards struck us as being one of the most remarkable fea
tures in the development of Canada),
"We may add that we purposely
avoided the parts of the country which
are the best settled, e.g., Portage-la-
Prairie and Indian Head, and generally the oldest established districts it:
Manitoba. We found the settler:
everywhere pleased with their own
immediate district, which was almost
invariably described as the best in
Canada. We can only recall to mind
one settler who was dissutislied with
his bargain. Life in Canada, said
this gentleman, combined all in*
characteristics of penal servitude
viz.. transportation, solitary confine-
ment, and hard labor. We subse
quently discovered that, this gentle
man had recently been dismissed
lrom  his  post.   .   .   .
"During our visit to British Colum

i Recent Case at Portsmouth, When Twe>
Men Landed and Were Scared
Away By the Sentry, Is Only One
of Many Incidents That Have Made
Britons Uneasy — German Officers
Surveying the  Roads.
;    A few days ago Portsmouth was dis-
I turbed   by   a  very   unusual   incident.
Two men landed at midnight from w
small   rowing-boat 'near   the   Tipnor,
' Powder   Magazine,   an   important depot used as a store for all the military
I explosives   at   Portsmouth,   which   is
j guarded night and day by armed sen-
! tries.    Tin-   sentry   challenged   them
twice, but as the men disregarded the
. challenge    he    fired.    The    intruders
thereupon rushed back to the boat aud
vanished into the darkness.
While in certain quarters it is alleg-
! ed that the  importance ol this incident has been exaggerated, and that-
it is probable thai the men acted in
ignornnce  rather than  with  any mischievous intentions, tne general opiu-
! ion seems to be tbat the incident pro-
i vides  another striking  illustration  ol
| the daring of foreign spies.
As a matter of fact, spying is great-
j ly on the increase, and Lord Haldane,
'realizing  this  fact,  has  introduced  a
j new bill, in  which it  is proposed to
'inflict   heavier  penalties   on   persons
j found in prohibited places, and those
i who make any sketch, note, model, or
[plan likely to be useful to an enemy.
j     In   the   existing   act   these   offence*'
I are classed as misdemeanors, the penalty being imprisonment for one year,
with or without hard labor, and a fine,
ot either.    In  the  new   bill   these  offences are classed  as felony, and th"
I penalty is not less than three years'
nor   more   than   seven   years'   penal
■ servitude—a very drastic change. Per-
[ sona attempting to commit an offence)
of  this  kind,  or  inciting  others,  are
liable to similar penalties.
Another new provision relates to
"harboring spies." This offence is
classed as a misdemeanor and the person is liable to imprisonment for
twelve months, with hard labor, and
a fine. Power is also given to justices to grant search-warrants, or in
cases ol urg-'iiev :> suocrintcndenl of
police may himself give written authority tor a search "in the interest ol
the  State."
It is not an easy matter, however,
to catch these spies. A few month*
ago a German officer w-as arrested for
I making sketches of the harbor de-
' fences of Portsmouth. But for every
1 spy caught there are hundreds who are
| never discovered, or who, if they are,
j are quietly despatched out of the coun-
' try to save international troubles
The greatest danger, however, lies in
British soldiers and sailors betraying
! their trust, and selling plans which
| it would be almost impossible for a
: foreigner to obtain. To tiie credit of
I both services, it should be said that
I such cases are very rare indeed. But
j it is nevertheless a iact that some
time ago a plan of the defences of.
Malta, the great Mediterranean fortress, second only in value to Gibraltar, was sold by a renegade who had
worn the uniform of the British army.
And there was an outcry against the
inadequacy of the sentence of twelve
months passed at Manchester on thi»
6py, who betrayed information which
would enable a possible enemy to prepare a scheme for the reducing of
Malta and the wresting of the island
from the British crown. It was not
the judge who was to blame, however,
but the defects in the law which enabled  a  spy  to  escape
What was more startling still was
the fact revealed by the military correspondent of The London Times, that-
this spy, when arrested, wns actually
bargaining lor plans for the selling of
Gibraltar itself to a foreign power.
About  the  same time  it was learnt
that a detailed description of our submarine defences had disappeared from
the   room   of   a   high   official,   which
I meant to say that  the whole scheme
I of   our   island's   submarine   defences
j was   reposing   in   the   archives   of   a
| foreign   power,   and   that   the   latter
knew the site of every mine at Ports-
| mouth and Plymouth, so that, at the
I call   to    battle,    its    warships   could
j thread   their  way   with  ease  through
' the   passage   left   for   the   passing   of
j British   squadrons.      Of  course,    the
I schemes of defence in such cases are
j being   continually   changed;   but  the-
j mere fact that such  plans could dis-
j appear provides a remarkable illuatra-
| tion of the success with which these
1 international spies meet.
It is  not  long  ugn since Ixird  Me-
; tliui-n and Col. Haldane met, in Berk-
| shire,  a  foreign  spy   who,   not  know-
; ing who they were, asked for detailed
j information   about   the   width  of   the
I roads.    Plans for the invasion of England   by   synchronous   raids   are   now
! in the possession ol the  War Office.
One of them  was tested a short time
I ago by a party of English officers, and
it was found  that tiie  main  feature*
of the spot chosen for the raid were
more  favorable  to  the   invader  than
the defender.   Then,  again,  no  little
uneasiness was caused  by the discovery that a party of foreign staff officers
in   mufti   made   an   extended   riding
tour on  the  east coast  in  1908.    Of
course,   it  is  easy  to  exaggerate the
importance   of   such   incidents;   but
there is no doubt that there are hundreds of   foreigners mixing among   ali
classes in this country in the pay of
foreign Governments, on the look-out
for securing valuable naval and military information.
Many of these spies mix in the besl
society, are accomplished linguists,
and reside here so long that they become in time naturalized British subjects. They pass as Englishmen, and
perhaps secure an appointment in an
academy for the training of young men
for the army and navy. Their credentials take them into the highest official circles, and by their agreeable
manners they become honored guest*
in society, matters being discussed In
their presence in a manner whic'a
would be carefully guarded against
did the fact become known that the/
were foreigners. •F-PT

"Here comes Aunt Alvuretta," snld
Elsie listlessly from her seat In the
bow window. "1 wotuler wbat has

Mrs. Parsons leaned over her dnugh
ter's shoulder and peered at the tall
lingular figure hurrying through the
orchard dial divided tbe two houses
"Maybe Gamaliel bus had another lit.

"Is It Gamaliel?" called Mrs. Parsons
eagerly ns her sister drew near.
Miss Lee stopped short and stared.
"Is what Gamaliel?"
"I thought perhaps that cat had another fit," returned Mrs. Parsons sharply; "he's always cutting up some sort
of didoes!"
"Gamaliel's all right." assured Al-
varetta calmly as she followed her sister into the warm sitting room, "now
are you. Elsie? Haven't you finished
those pillowcases yet?"
"This Is the hist one." answered El-
ale, rising to otTer ber aunt a rocking
chair. "When we saw you running.
Aunt Alvarelta. we ihought something
had happened." She resumed ber own
sent and bent her fair head above the
muslin pillowcase.
"Something unusual did happen."
averred Miss Lee with mysterious
nods of her head. "I'll have to take
off my knit hood; It's horter'n nil

I haven't got on my sweeping cap'

"Wbnt happened?" queried Mrs. Tar
sons Impntlently ns she picked up her
needles and knitted furiously nt some
white Ince she wns making for ber
daughter's trousseau.
Miss Lee removed her sweeping cap
nnd twirled It thoughtfully on one lone
finger, her keen, black eyes wafehlnc
Elsie's downcast face as she told ber
"As I was saying. I cleaned (he garret this morning, or I wns Just beginning to when I deckled I'd clean out

tell you nil the stuff there wns tucked
awny in that trunk. Some rainy day
you can come. Emellne. and we'll look
It over. But among other things there
was a little pnstebonrd box nnd Inside
of It was n little scrap of lace, marked
'Ann Lee's wedding veil.' That wns
your great-grandmother, Elsie! There
wss a scrap of the wedding gown and
then screwed up In a little piece of paper was this bit of grandmother's wed
ding cake!" Alvarelta triumphantly
held up n twist of yellowed paper,
which she carefully unfolded to discover a morsel of dark, fruity cake
wltb a few flecks of Icing clinging to
"I'm going to give It to Elsie tc
dream on," said Miss Lee slowly.
Elsie's pale face flushed hotly nnd
she shrank back In her cbnlr with a
protesting gesture of her hands. "You
needn't laugh at me. Aunt Alvuretta,'
she said tremulously. "You know I
don't have to dream on wedding enkt
—my fates been decided for me." She
shot a bitter glance lit her mother's
averted face.
Mrs. Parsons arose nnd went to the
plant stand In the window, where she
proceeded (o pick tbe dead leaves from
tbe geraniums With quick, nervous ges
Hires that betrayed her Inward perturbation.
"I didn't know Elsie had decided
she was going lo marry Jerome Barclay. I Ihought she was sort of teeler
Ing between him and Hob Harris,"
blurted Miss Alvarelta, getting upon
ber feet. "I've never taken much stock
in your notion of having Elsie get her
wedding dollies ready before she'd
made up ber mind."
"I never said 1 wanted to marry Jerome Barclay 1—I—can't bear him I"
(lashed Elsie, wlih unusual spirit.
Mrs. Parsons turned a cold face toward her daughter "I (bought It was
understood," she said severely, "that
you was to marry Jerome. He said
he wouldn't take 'no' for an answer.
and he says you can keep hired help
and you needn't do a stroke of work
If you don't want to He can afford
to have you live like a lady. He left
a dl'mond ring for you to wear, nnd
he told me to Are ahead and get the
clothes ready. He says he knows you
will be ready. 1 don't want to Influence you. Elsie, but I've had to work
so hard all my life It seems ns If I
couldn't have yon let such a good
chance go by." She looked appeallng-
ly nt the mutinous face of ber daughter.
"1 wouldn't mind working hard for
some folks." half sobbed the girl,
turning her eyes away
Mrs. Parsons sighed nnd resume!
ber picking of tbe dead leaves trot)
tne geraniums, "i didn't know tbat
Rob bad given you the chance to say
yes or no." she said bitterly.
"Fiddlesticks!" sniffed Miss Alvaret-
ta, with a toss of her head. "I guess
Rob and Elsie know whether they
want to marry each other without any
hlghfalutlng talk about It. Hob Harris is poor, but he's smart as n whip
nnd bound to make his mark in the
world. He's got more ginger In his
little finger thun .lerome Barclay has
In his whole lazy body. I don't believe in interfering wltb other folk's
business, nnd i shan't influence Elsie
either way. but 1 think it's only fair
Bhe should have a chance, and here
it Is."
Miss Alvarctta  held out the bit of
wedding cake in its twist of paper and
dropped It In her niece's outstretched
hand.    "Elsie Parsons, you take that
cake and put It under your pillow tonight.    If you dream about Hob Har-
! rls you can take It tbnt It's your fate
! to  marry   him  nnd  nobody  else.    If
you drenm of anybody else  I  reckon
- It's your duty to marry them whoever
j they are.    There!    I've got to be go-
! Ing.     Gnmullel   will   bo   wanting   his
: milk."
With n pressure of Elsie's bund and
a defiant glance at tbe thin disapproving back of her sister, Miss Alva-
retta marched out of the room.
When she had disappeared through
the aisles of leafless trees Mrs. Parsons turned around. "I hope you're
not going to take any stock in that
foolishness, Elsie."
"Mother, I'm going to have my
chnnce." she snld quietly. "I'll promise to nblde by whatever I dream
about tonight If I dream about Jerome Barclay I'll tell you the truth."
"I'll do the best I can by you, Elsie,
whichever way you happen to drenm,"
said Mrs. Parsons after a long pause.
"Thank   you,   mother,"   said   Elsie,
and then they talked of oiher matters
and Elsie's lovers were not mentioned
again that afternoon.
After supper there came n scratching
I and mewing nt the side door.    "It's
Gamaliel," said Elsie as she arose to
I admit Miss Alvaretta's big black cat
"I suppose he's come over to spend tbe
I night"
"The  most  ungrateful  critter  that
]  ever lived, remarked Mrs. Parsons as
I she placed a saucer of milk for the
1  unexpected   guest      "Alvnrettn   waits
on thnt cat band and foot nnd five
:  nights out of tbe week he runs over
| here to sleep.   I shouldn't think you'd
j want him sleeping in your room. Elsie."
WTille she undressed  Elsie thought
!  of tbe wedding cuke nnd of wbnt slit

near her bead, but she forgot It uftei
i  all  uutll  she  was about  to step Into
i  bed.   Then she groped In the darkness
aud found tbe twisted bit of paper oc
i  tbe  bureau  aud  tucked  It  under  bel
i pillow.
She thought persistently of Jeronu
Barclay, while she tried to banish hlic
| from ber mind, nnd so she fell usleef
and    dreamed    of    him—clear,    vivid
dreams of automobile rides around i lit

cushion and  bounced off  Indignantlj
as   tbe   door   was   cautiously   pushed
open   nnd    Mrs.    Parsons'   face    waj
j thrust In.
"Well. Elsie, wbat did you dream?"
she asked, wltb assumed lightness.
Elsie sat up In bed and swept the
fair hair back from ber dejected face.
"I dreamed of Jerome Barclay, mother," she said heroically. "So I'll marry him Just as I said I would."
Mrs. Parsons advanced Into tbe room
and picked up a scrap of paper from
the floor. "What's this?" she nsked.
"What did you do with the cake, Elsie?"
The girl stared nnd then slipped her
hand hastily under tbe pillow and
drew forth a screwed up piece of paper. "Here It Is—no—why. mother, I
made a mistake and put a curl paper
under tbe pillow Instead of the wedding enke!" The color oiimo Into her
cheeks nnd ber eyes danced as they
had not done In months, She was
gelling some of ber old time spirit
back, "There Isn't uny charm about
dreaming on n curl paper, 1h there,
mother!" she asked demurely.
"No, there Isn't." said Mrs. Parsons
Shortly. "Elsie, I believe that Gamaliel ate that cuke. See, Ibis Is (be paper Willi u few crumbs left In It. I
found It near bis cushion. Tberel
See hi at the rest of It!" She look-
oil rcseulfully lit Gamaliel ns be swallowed Hie remaining crumbs and licked his lips appreciatively,
"1 forgot to say. Elsie, thnt Hob

1 expect your Aunt Alvarelta bad
something to do about getting him
over here. He looks powerfully worried. He's got a little automobile to
attend to his business with. I've asked Hob to stay lo breakfast You better hurry." She opened the door nnd
stumbled over the active Gnmallei.
"Drat that cat! Thieving old repro-
batel" she scolded, departing. "I'm
glad you dreamed what you did,
child," she enlled back.
Elsie snntched Gamaliel to her heart
and kissed hltu rapturously, "You're
the deurcst old thing, and yon shall

in his perky enr. Then from lielow
there came n prolonged and fumiliar
whistle that was echoed In her heart.
She crept to the window and answered it happily, tremulously,

I Aeroplanes   May   Have   to   Be   Fitted
I With  Movable Wings.
I Two German physicists, doing Rome
experimenting for the Smithsonian Institution, tell us tbat we are as yet
off the line ot tbe real secret of flight,
says tbe Century Path.    Fixed  wings
i are a provisional makeshift and must,
one would say. Inevitably involve the
death of every aviator who trusts himself to them for a sufficient number of
flights. He must some time come to a
place In the air where an upward and
downward current are passing each
other. If. ns Is sometimes certain, be
has one wing in one of these nnd the
other in the other bis death Is assured.
There must be 11 positive lifting power In tbe wings If snfety Is to be secured In this kind of flight. Tbe wings
must beat like those of an Insect or n
bird—the former. His von l.endenfeld
and Hitter sny. And. we should say.
there must be nn automatically acting
arrangement by which either wing can
when necessary deliver a more powerful stroke or more rapid strokes than
the other.
They studied the blowfly In particular, finding Its wings to be n double
membrane between whose Inyers Is a
supporting system of hollow tubes radiating from tbe joint and connected
with cross pieces. The movement Is
directly downward and toward the
end of the stroke a little forward.
The upcome. which Is slower. Is a little backward, making the front hair
of the lower loop of n figure 8 and
then the hinder half of tbe upper loop.
In this the wing becomes a little vertical so as to oppose Its back to nu air
current on which the Insect Is flying.

Many Causes For These Promoters of
Railroad Wrecks.
Among all the causes of railroad accidents in the Dnited States none ii
mentioned with grcnter frequency tbnn
tbe broken rail.
Many causes are nsslgned. and,
doubtless, many are contributory. Ac
excess of phosphorus not easily eliminated by tbe Bessemer procesB by
which nearly all American rails are
made has been most commonly
blamed, but some of the best mechanical engineers uow regard this cause
as unimportant. Improper shape and
a lack of pressure In rolling modern
heavy rails proportionate to (hat which
was available for the lighter rails ol
the past are more important faults.
An excess of carbon Is another.
Faults of shape usually consist In
undue thinness of the web or shank ol
the rail and thinness of the bnse. The
disproportion between these parts nnd
the hend of the rnll tends to a lack ol
uniformity In texture after cooling.
Most Important of all causes ol
broken rails is the strain Imposed by
tbe great weight and high speed ol
modern trnlns. Mechanical engineers
believe tbat with tbe present style ol
rail the limit of safety is reached al
an axle load of 4u,000 pounds, yel
many trains considerably exceed that
Two or three years ago steps were
taken by various associations to have
adopted specifications for a stnndnrd
rail heavier in the web and the bast
than those In use: and these specifications were approved by leading engl
neers.—Harper's Weekly.

been added to the many already In use

schau. have voted In favor of Engllst

regimental   schools.    The   reason   foi
this is found in the fact Hint tbe regiment Is made up of recruits from Hip
Knrschau district.    From  there men
und women In great numbers went  tc
America.    Many  of  them  and   tbclt
descendants returned to the old home,
bringing   the   English   language   with
them.   Consequently the children employ English us much as they do iheit

"I'm sorry, miss, to have to tell you
that I'm going lo leave you."
A  girl   of   twenty,   whose   red  and
white complexion bespoke Irish blood,
Stood before ber mistress. Angering ber
apron with evident embarrassment.
"Why, Maggie, what bave I done?"
"Nothing, miss."
"Then why are you going to leave
"Well, miss—the truth Is—why, miss
»I'm going to be married."
"Oh, I see. Who are you going to
marry, Maggie?"
"Jim Doolan, that works In the Alns-
frorth factory."
"The Alnsworth factory?"
"Yes. miss."
Margaret Etherldge, the girl's mistress, was interested In the Alnsworth
Company as a stockholder and through
Its presideut and manager. Richard
"I'm sorry to lose you. Maggie," said
Miss Etherldge. "but If you are going
to be married, you cuo depend upon
me to give you whatever you will need
In the way of clothes, household linen
ind other things, to enable you to set
ap housekeeping."
"Thank you. miss."
Maggie was married and went to
live with her husband in a small suit
at rooms. Jim's wages were not very
large, but the couple made them dt>
rery well till the flrst child came,
when they were obliged to take a
backward step financially by incurring
a considerable bill for medical attend
ince. Then Jim was taken sick, and
that increased the indebtedness.
Meanwhile Rlcbard Alnsworth bad
been pressing an unsuccessful suit
with Miss Etherldge. He had greatly
Increased tbe output of the Alnsworth
company since he took the management, and to the book value of tbe
Stock 50 per cent had been added. Indeed, Richard Alnsworth had come to
be considered one of tbe smartest
fonng business men In tbe state. But
there were differences between him
and Margaret Etherldge that prevented her from accepting him. Those
business qualifications for which tbe
world applauded hli 'Id not appeal
to her...  She/ ■'erstwnd tbe

share of tbe profits of a business. She

children—going to the works early in
tbe morning and, havlug worked hard
til day, return In tbe evening to their
ihabby homes to repeat the process
Jay after day. Tbe were working to
pay dividends on her stock, while she,
who did nothing, lived in affluence. It
seemed to ber that there was something wrong. She appealed to Richard
Alnsworth for an explanation, but hie
explanations were not satisfactory.
His reasons convinced her, but ber
heart, ber sense of justice, were unmoved byi them.
"Why can't you pay your operatives
enough to enable tbem to live more
comfortably?" she asked Mr. Ains-
"Because of competition."
j "Explain."
"Other concerns would be able to
undersell and we would be forced out
of business."
"Why not appropriate a portion of
tbe dividends, which are enormous, to
tbe operatives?"
"Because of several reasons, the
most pertinent of which is that the
stockholders would object."
"I am a stockholder. You may cut
my dividends In half, giving one half
to the operatives."
"You are one among hundreds; the
test. Instead of being willing to give
op their profits, are howling for more.
My dear Margaret, you don't understand such things."
"Does anybody understand them?"
"Yes, one—Providence."
1 One day Maggie Doolan sent a pitiful message to Margaret, scrawled In
pencil on a bit of paper, saying that
she wns HI, her husband was awny at
his work all day. the children had no
tine to Hike enre of them, and Jim's
wages were pledged for debts. Be-
aides this, there was nothing to eat in
the house Margaret Immediately sallied forth with a well filled purse and,
stopping at the provision shopB by the
way, carried comfort to the distressed.
As Bhe was coming away, Jim came In
with a rueful countenance and, throwing himself Into a cbnlr, dropped his
bead in his arms on a table.
"Wbat Is it. Jim?" asked his wife In
■ frightened tone.
"The strike is on." was the mournful
"Oh, heavens!" cried Maggie In dismay.
"What are the hands striking for?"
nsked Margaret Etherldge.
"Ten per cent ndvnnce all around."
"Aud  do  you   mean  that you  will
have no income whatever till the matter Is settled?"
"I do."
"now much do yon earn?"
"Twenty-one dollnrs a week."
"Very well.    Every weekly pay day
I   will   send   you   a   check   for  that
Margaret left, leaving a relieved and
thankful household behind her.
The strike proved to be a prolonged
'Sue.    One evening  while It  was  In
progress Rlcbard Alnsworth and Margaret   Etheridge  were sitting  in  ber
Home discussing tbe matter.
"Why do you not give the men w! at
j they demand?" she asked.
I    "tier a number of reasons—flrst. If 1
I do within six months they will make
another demand, aud so on  uu II  we
pay them bo much tliut we can't man-
| ufacture at a profit   This will drive

"Why can't a compromise be effected?"
"The question Is a difficult one to
answer. If these men were represented by one of their own number a
compromise might be effected. But
they ure represented by one or more
persons whose Interest 1 don't consider
their interest. The questions between
the laborer und tbe capitalist are those
constantly arising between partners In
business. Whenever the Interests of
persons nnd peoples are Intertwined
there enn only be loss to both In a
want of harmony. When tbe capitalist Is unjust to the laborer he In the
long run Injures his business. When
the laborer is excessive In his demands
upon the capitalist ho Injures tbe business In which be Is a partner."
Alnsworth bud scarcely spoken tbe
last word when there was evidence of
a commotion without Some one cried:
"Hurrah for the strike sympathizer!"
Alnsworth nnd Margaret looked at
each other wouderlngly.
"Where's tbe leddy? Come out!"
There was a riug at the door bell.
Margaret chose to answer the summons herself. A workman stood at
the door, who, pulling respectfully the
rim of his tattered hat, said to her:
There's a lot of us here, miss, that
hearln' ye have contributed to the
strikers' fund by paying Jim Doolan's
family his weekly wages, have come
to thank ye. Would ye mind showln'
yourself on the porch?"
Margaret went out and saw a crowd
of upturned faces, lighted only by a
street lamp.
"Three cheers for the leddy strike
sympathizer!" cried the man who bad
brought her out
The cheers were given with a will,
and when quiet was restored Margaret said:
"I can't say exactly that 1 am a
strike sympathizer, but 1 can say that
I am a sympathizer with you and your
families. I am u stockholder in the
Alnsworth company, aud if by throw-
Ing off all my dividends except what

"Good for you!" "Let tbe other

name with tbe management of the

Margaret's Introducer held op his
hand for silence and said:
"All In favor of Miss Etheridge representing us say aye."
There was a wild shout of ayes. No

"Very well," said Margaret. "Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock I will be

New Chapter of Canadian History In
Archives' Report.
A new chapter in Canadian history
has beeh given by the Ontario Government in the report of "the Bureau
of Archives, just issued by Alexander
Fraser, the Provincial Archivist. The
volume is the record of an enquiry
into the location and history of the
villages of the Huron Indians. These
were nearly all in what is now the
County of Simcoe. For the first time
their location, which has been, a subject of controversy, has been definitely given.
The province is indebted to Rev.
A. E. Jones, S.J., archivist of St.
Mary's College, Montreal, for the information given in the bulky volume.
The report is a veritable mine of
information and is the result of five
years 'work of Rev. Father Jones in
collaboration with Mr. Fraser. All
the works extant have been drawn
upon. Not only have the "Jesuit Relations" ,iat had been published
been quoted, but much of them is
given that has never been published
until now. Correspondence of the Jesuit nnd Recollct missionaries now in
the possession of their descendants
in France and Switzerland has also
been secured.
Father Jones is not only the archiv-.
ist of St. Mary's College, but has
charge of the Jesuit records of
both the North ami South American
continents. He has gone over the moil
of North Simcoe, aud by actual calculation, having reference to the records, has delinitely located the various villages. Hm maps are given
in the report, as well as nine of the
water color sketches of Father Martin,
made in 1855.
A chronological and biographical record of the missionaries and mission
centres year by year from 1615 to 1650
is given.
Letters and records of the period,
both in the possession of Father Jones
and Mr. Fraser, now see daylight for
the first time. For over forty years
Father Jones has been collecting and
studying these old records and is regarded as one of the leading aborigin-
alists on the continent. He has applied the term Huronia to this department of research, and it is now the
accepted term on the continent.
Sunken Lops.
On the shore of Lake Ontario;, in
the Bay of Quintc, the most peculiar
lumbering operations in the country
are  now in progress.
Hundreds of logs of oak and black
walnut, many of them 50 or more
feet long, arc being brought up from
the bottom of the bay with grappling
hooks operated by powerful engines
j and hoisting apparatus stationed on
Some of the logs have been submerged over twenty-live years, but
when brought to the furfaee are found
to be in as perfect a state of preservation as the day they went to the bottom.
Forty years ago the shores of the
Bay of Quinte were lined with great
primeval forests of pine, oak and
black walnut. The pine first attracted
the lumbermen and was the timber
really sought for, but every tree went
down before the woodman's axe during the winter months.
»n the ten or fifteen years required
to denude the country of its fore.-ts
the bottom of the bay a«:d tbe adjacent coves became carpeted with logs
that to-day are worth a high price.
It was not until this  summer that
plans,were   devised   for   raising   the

She withdrew, followed by wild
shouts from laborers delighted with
the novel plan of endeavoring to secure
their demands through a  stockholder
to see if there were a sufficient mini-
ber to make hoisting operations profitable. The reports brought up were
so favorable that scows were equipped
with the necessary machinery and the
hoisting work is now in full swing.
Some days a scow or barge and its
crew  will  bring up hundreds of dol-

The next morning Richard A ins-
wort Ii was nt Margaret's borne some
lime before the appearance of the committee and was shown Into a room by
himself, ready to decide upon any
proposition that might be made. When
the committee nrrlved they were placed In the drawing room. Margaret entered and said:
"Make your demand."
"Our only demand," replied th»
spokesman, "Is for 10 per cent ad
"If the raise Is granted, how long
before a demand will be made for another raise?"
The committee conferred and Anally
agreed to pledge themselves that no
new demand should be made within
two years.
"How is the rannngement of the company to be assured that you will keep
this pledge?"
After another consultation the spokesman said, "Every operative will sign
a written pledge to you. and you can
give your word to (he management."
"Very well.    Walt here."
Withdrawing. Margaret went Into
Ihe room occupied by Ihe manager and
made him tbe proposition.
Now Itlchnrd Alnsworth bad a
shrewd heud in more ways than one.
He could see nn opportunity when 11
presented Itself, nnd he snw one now.
"Margaret." he said, "the terms are
accepted on ono condition."
"What is It?"
"That you make an additional

"To become my wife."
Mnrgaret was not rendy to give n
definite answer. She tried to satisfy
him with an evasion. All to no purpose, lie stood Arm ns n rock. Elthei
the stipulation must be Introduced
Into the agreement or the strike must
go on. Finally she put out her hnnd

took the hand and sealed the contract

Canada's Lumber Argot.
The Canadian lumber industry will
I furnish the dictionary maker with \
generous Share of his swelling word
totals, if it has not already done so,
says The New York Post. Timber
tracts across the border are divided
into "limits" or "berths." The grow-
I ing timber on a tract is a "stand,"
i and toe contents of a "stand' are
| measured in "feet," which means a
board one foot square and one inch
i thick, and not a cubic foot. To survey a stand of timber is to "cruise" it,
the man who does it is a "cruiser."
and his report is a "cruise." Trees
are "failed,1' and the man wbo has
"lalled" them is a "sawyer." For
transportation by water lugs are made
up into raits, but "rafting" means
hauling a raft by tugs. The cro»s
logs that bind the rult together are
"swilters," and the intervals between
the "swifters" are "sections." The
Canadian equivalent for lumbur-jacii
is "shanty-man." Going up to camp
is going "up to Die shanties." Land
that has been burned is "brooly."
that is to say, brule. Timber is frequently cut with four flat sides, but
with part of the original circumference
of the log left between the flat sides.
This curve is the "wane,1 'and the log
so cut is a "waney log."
An Official Mystery.
Years ago, when Lord Anglesey was
Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, he said
once of the Irish Secretary of that
day, "Mr. Stanley and 1 do very well
together as companions, but we differ
so totally about Ireland that I never
mention the subject to him." Just
how they transacted official business
remains  a mystery.
They   Might   Disappear.

and down, I suppose?" said the tailor.
"No, sir," the irritable customer replied. "I prefer stationary pockets.
You may make the slits perpendicular, however."

success and tne disappointments
winch so strangely commingle iu the
civilization of a cuinnicrc.al age. Only

pack train witn the.r silvery echoes
Uirougn the gorgeous though tattered
autumnal forest and the monotonous
crooning oi tne Inuiau guide disturbed
the sanctified stillness uf the wolder-
nesa. Far below us tny beautiful,
tempestuous Timber iuver, along
wnich we were skirting, foamed
through its tortuous channel amidst
its evergreen banks of stately pines.
There were "pines, pines and the shadows of pin. s as fur as tiie eye could
see, a steadfast legion of stalwart
knights in dominant empery," while
tne phantom form of Roche Myettu
and nis serried host haunted the liori-
ton through a filmy,  violet haze.
And in the most picturesque spot
of that beautiful landscape, where a
grassy glade overlooked the river,
wi.ii the sunbeams glinting through
the trees, was a rude, crumbling palisade betokening that there was 1ml-
lcwed ground—"a grave in the wilderness." It proved to be the last
resting-place of a mother and her
babe, who had traveled, probably together, the long, lone traii across the
Great Divide, the sands of which
show  no  returning  footsteps.
Close by were the ruins of a home,
the battleground whereon some brave,
rugged woodman and pioneer who
had flouted the wild and followed its
lure—one of those strange, courageous, adventurous spirits wno shun the
society of their fellows, and with their
even more brave and devoted wives
push out into the unknown to blaze
the pat lis of civilization—had gone
down in the battle as "the lean wolf-
dog goes dow*jj." Only a dismantled
log cabin in a little clearing where
nature was rapidly effacing the evidence of this resented intrusion, together with those lonely graves wherein his heart and his hopes lay buried,
r^n.iined to mark the struggle for a
home and existence.

reined my horse to gaze on the scene
which, at a glance, revealed one of
ti.i tragedies of life—a sad, sad story
of the desolation of what must have
been a happy though humble home by
death; of the breaking of ties of affection under peculiarly distressing
conditions; of a true though rugged
heart left to sorrow alone when evidently all that it cherished was gone
forever; but a story of pure, undying
love which was manifested more beau-
tifuiiy, more eloquently than if it had
been blazoned on marble and bronze,
or if the mortal remaiiiB of the sleepers had reposed in a magnificent mausoleum decked with costly sculpture
instead of beneath those spreading

Under the pickets now falling to
decay were two crosses, one large and

marked the graves of the mother and
her child, but which had rotted from

as if In sympathy. On the larger
cross was cut in deep, irregular letters the simple, sacred word "Wife."

pathetic grief was conveyed by the

Mr. A. R. Denieon, of Toronto,
can plan hunting trips and fishing
expeditions with the same facility
which he shows in planning buildings, says The Toronto Star Weekly
He is the architect of many a wild
thing's misfortune, and never sc
happy as when living next to nature.
Sometimes, however, it is unpleasant
to get too near to nature—even hu
man nature. Here's a story which
demonstrates  it.
The scene is laid in the northern
part of the province, and the beginning of things is the shooting ol a
muskrst. Mr. Denison left it lying
on a portage. An Indian found it.
The Indians esteem these creatures
I a great   delicacy,   and  the   brave in
iquest:on planned a feast.
It so happened that he had long
been anxious to do Mr. Denison a
good turn. With this in mind, be

ed hjm to be bis guest at the forthcoming banquet. The white man
was too good-natured to refuse, and
the delight which lie would experience in eating muskrnt became the
derisive talk of the camp. Mr. Denison. however, determined to take
precautions, and when he started
forth for the Indian's tent, he carried n generous basket of white man's
Arriving nt his destination, ha

it deliciously. H:s red host was
jubilant. Not so the guest, who had
secretly hoped that someone would
steal the animal before the hour appointed for its d:smemberment. The
conversation which ensued when
they finally sat down to dinner wus
something like  this:
Denison—"Well. John, you consider the muskrat a great delicacy,
don't you?''
Denton—"Have  it very often?"
John—"No, very scarce now."

Seymour Lucas of the Royal Academy.
The design on the king's deck is on a

Lumberman's Slang.
No other industry, perhaps, furnishes so many original, peculiar, and
interesting words and phrases ol a
technlcal-cum-slangy nature as the
lumber industry of Canada. Timber
tracts, says Canada, are divided Int.,
"limits" or "berths." The growing
timber on a tract is a "stand," and
the contents of a "stand" are measured in "feet"—a "foot" being a board
one loot square by one inch thick,
and not a cubic foot. To make a
survey of a stand of timber is to
"cruise" it, the man who does the
work is a "cruiser," and his report
thereon is a "cruise." Trees are "failed," and the man who "falls" them
is a "sawyer." A man who works in
a lumber-camp is known as a "lumberjack" or "shanty man." When going
up to camp he speaks of going "up to
the shanties." Timber tracts that have
suffered the ill-effects of forest fires

course, a corruption oi "brule"

Field Marshal I,ord Methuen met
with his most thrilling adventure, not
on the battlefield, but on the Alps,
when he and a friend were mountaineering. A storm burst on them just
as they had reached the summit ol
Dome des Mischabcl.
For seventeen hours they fought it,
and, though starving and stiff witb
cold and fatigue, held their ground.
Then a flash of lightning caused Lord
Methuen to make a fulsc step, and
fall over the precipice, but the guide
to whom he and his friend were fastened was quick enough to plant hi?
staff in the snow and enable himsell
to resist the shock of the fall. For a
time Lord Methuen remained suspended in mid-air, when any moment
might have been his last. He shouted
to his comrades to cut tjie rope and
save themselves. But friend and'
guide, by a superhuman effort, dragged him 'back to safety. That' was

Sir John Barker has come for a-
tour through Canada to Vancouver,
and thence to Japan, Cnina, and India.
Sir John's career is in itself one ol
the modern romances of business. He
began life with Very little money, and
it is believed that his first job brought
him in five shillings a week. For a
long time he was one of Whiteley'a
young men, and then, with his natural shrewdness, his resolution, his
ambition, and his down-right aptitude
for business, he set up for himself in
the now famous shop in High street,
Kensington, London.
He had little money of his own at
the time, and had to borrow capital,
but in a few years he was able to pay
everybody out, though it took a good
deal more than $500,000 to do it.
Sir John was appointed an alderman
of the first London County Council,
and in lUOli was sent to Parliament as

The Sacred Ganges.
The River Ganges, in India, is famous for two things-its alleged purifying influence on all who bathe in
it, and its nuiddiness. For ages there
has been a belief among the Hindus
that a dip in the Ganges, particularly
at Benares, is a safeguard against the
cholera, typhoid fever, and other infectious disease. A recent analytical
examination of the river water at
Benares has revealed the interesting
fact that the Gauges is fairly alive
with bacteria antagonistic to the bacilli of cholera and typhoid. The
plague-ridden Hindoo who plunges into the river to bathe in it, provides
himself with a vast army of useful microbes, which will quickly sweep out
of his system, the deadly microbes of

Administrator of the Northern Territory, Australia, recently to the Acting
Minister of External Affairs. "I have
gone through miies and miles of such,
wild rice in a canoe at the close ot
the wet season." Senator Findley imagined something morn. He saw the
territory placed beyond need of financial assistance by the treatment and

A Modest Official.
Astonishing as it may seem, there
is one man in Toronto so modest that
even when he' was invited to lunch
with the King he refused to let a
newspaper reporter puulish that fact.
Probably, almost certainly, lie was
the only man uu the city to be so
honored. He is related to the Lord
Mayor of London, ami the latter sent
him an invitation to the Lord Mayor's
dinner to the King, which was part of
the coronation program.
Quite by accident, a reporter on a
Toronto daily learned of the invitation. He sought out the invited man.
who happens to be in a rather prominent civic position, and asked lor further information. To his amazement
the modest one refused to even let
him publish the bald fact.
"Well, all I have to say is, that If
it had been some other officials who
had received such an invitation, no
time would have been lost in sending
typewritten notices, with full particulars and photographs, to all the papers
in town, said the scribe as he walked away.

smiled. And because he is really and
truly modest, his name is withheld in

Men of the Cloth Not Without a Sense
ef Humor.
Most clergymen are not at all lacking in a sense of humor. There was,
for instance, Nicholas Burke, better
known as Father Thomas Burke, the
J great Irish patriot and preache*.
I Father Tom had a great fondness for
riding on the top oi an omnibus. Once
when doing so after a long church
service in Dublin he produced his
breviary and was soon deep in its
contents. A well-known evangelical
sitting near by took upon himself to
comment upon the act.
"The Lord tells us." he said, "tbat
when we pray we should not be as
the hypocrites, who love to pray in
public and at the corners of streets,
that they may be seen by men."
"Now," lie added, "when 1 pray I
enter into my closet and when I have
shut the door i pray in secret."
Without looking up. Father Burke
replied aloud, "Yes, and then you get
on the top of an omnibus and tell
everyone all about it."
A convert lady who hoped that he
would write her in the style and
length of his sermons, inquired of
Father Burke what she should do to
become truly religious. The reply
short and good, was: "Be as humble
as a door mat and as pliable as a
plate of porridge."
Another famous clerical humorist
was Father James Healy, of Ireland.
Once, when he was asked how he
would describe a Scotchman, he answered, assuming as he spoke the
Scots' accent: "A Scot is a mort
who l(eeps the Sawbath and ivery-
thing  else  that he  can git."
A barber once in shaving the father
had a very trembling hand. "There
now," exclaimed Father Healy, "you
have cut me! Oh, whisky, whisky!"
he wound up by way of lamenting the
source of the barber's unsteadiness.
"Yes, yer reverence," replied the
barber promptly, "it do make the skin
tender, don't it?"
A workingman once asked Bishop
Wilberforce, an Anglican clergyman,
to tell him the road to heaven.
"Take the first turn to the right and
keep straight on," was the ready and
apt reply.
A Lutheran refrain. "The devil is
dead," was once being chanted by
two Oxford undergraduates as they
lounged about the hall of Cuddeadon
Palace. Gently walking up to them
the bishop placed one hand on each
head,  saying:  "Alas!  poor orphans."

A Tiger Marriage.
When a Coorg shoots a tiger, it is
believed that he will not dare to
touch the dead animal, lest it should
again come to life and spring upon
him. The person who touches the
tiger, therefore gets credit for his
bravery, the toucher being regarded
as the bridegroom and the shooter as
the bride.
The tiger is brought from the place
where it' was shot, amidst loud shouts
and the firing of guns, to the village
plain. There it is made to stand,
with the help of poles, and is skinned.
By tills lime the rumor has spread
like wildfire, and invitations for the
"wedding" are sent out.
The skin is then brought home, and
the hero and his co-hero are bathed
and dressed according to the fashion
for a wedding, and are seated on the
three-legged stool for the "Muhur-
tam." Their relatives give milk to
and put rice on them, the signs of
prosperity and wealth, and give
presents of money.
During the time of the Coorg rajahs,
a tiger shooter was regarded with
respect and honor, and he alone was
eligible to grow whiskers.—Madras

A   Germ     Disease    Which   Is   Baffling
The Doctors and Alarming The
People Generally
It may he said that doctors are
only agreed mi two points regarding
this much dreaded disease.
First, that it is a germ disease, and,
second, that like all genu diseases
can only be fought with pure, rich
Prevention is always the better way
and that is why we are always talking about the wisdom of keeping the
blood pure and rich and the nerves
healthy and strong by using Dr.
Chases Nerve Food.
Rich, red blood is a deadly foe to
disease germs whether they are
germs of infantile paralysis, of colds,
of consumption or any other disease.
Don't let the blood get thin and
watery. Don't let the nerves get exhausted. The risk is too great. Every
dose of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food goes
to the formation of a certain amount I
of pure, rich blood. For this reason
you nre certain to benefit by this
treatment. ,
You need not wait until you have]
some form of paralysis before testing]
this great medicine, Be warned by
headaches, sleeplessness, irritability,
failing memory and power of concentrating the mind. Restore the system j
while still you have something to
build on.
Get new energy  and vigor into the
system   by   using   Dr.   Chase's   Nerve |

The natives of Ceylon regard the cry
of this bird with superstitious horror.

at night presages the most dire mis-
fortuitSsT" '■"
"J British official of the Ceylon civil
service has given  some study to this
bird.    Its  ordinary  note,  he
| states,  is  a magnificent clear  shout
like that of a human being heard at
I a great distance, and producing a fine
effect in the  silence oi the night.
I     But   the  sounds  that  have  earned
for the bird its bad name, and which
| this officer  reports  In'  heard  to  perfection but once, are said to be well-
' nigh  indescribable,   the  most  appalling that can bo imagined, und scarce-
' ly to be heard without a shudder.   It

boy in torture, who--' screams ure be-

Card-Playing Queens.
Queen Elizabeth was ion.I of cards,
but inclined to be peevish and lose
her temper in the game. Mary, Queen
of Scots, carried her infatuation to
the extent ot wagering her personal
attire on the game. She would play
continuously from Sa'turdaj to Monday   and   sacrifice   her   wardrobe   if
n Lsary  to  do so.    Queen  Anne  of
Austria had persistent ill luck, we
are told, but "she played like a queen,
without passion or greed." Anne
Boleyn was an inveterate gambler, v>

with one exception. Catherine ol Ara-
gon did not gamble. She had no lovo

supply (if this country must
come from the outside. Weac-
tually grew no parsnips fur the
market ut all in these parts this
year aud there is a market lor
several tons. Il is no wonder
that our customers often send
mil for their supplies when we
are so often unable to fill their
orders for the most staple vegetables. Indeed, I can only express my astonishment and
gratitude to the mine managers,
merchants and others who have
stuck to the local producers so
steadily in the face of such repeated disappointments. We
must remember that when we
run short of any line of vegetables that are in season, it
makes it harder to sell all the
rest that we may have.
We made a better showing
with cabbage than with most
of the other vegetables, and for
a time we supplied a large part
of the Slocan market. We were
rather late in getting our early
cabbage on the market in .my
quantity, as there were some
failures amongst our hot beds
:ind we should probably have
done better to have entrusted
tho growing of our young plants

would devote sufficient lime to
them to make them a thorough
success, grow them quickly and
harden them oil' properly so

Plentyof our neighbors would
like u good dish oi' cauliflower
but we did very little to give
them the opportunity of pitying
us for the privilege.
There is another pest besides
the cutworm which is liable to
attack cabbage, cauliflower and
turnips, and often does very
serious damage though ii ran
be checked fairly easily. I refer to the aphis.
Our customers showed their
appreciation of our local grown
potatoes by quickly consuming
all the crop we bail to nffer
them. Mr. Worley had (rood
success with some Early Hose,
bill on the whole our crops in
the Slocan were rather light. I
carefully soaked all my seed
