Dr. (10mm  Degrs to Differ.
Differing witli our expert in charge
of this cabinet us to the soundness of
tbe theory of primary impoverishment,
Dr. W, E. Gotnin submits tbe following
to the editor:
" li of two adjoining ore deposits ono
show average values markedly stronger
than its neighbor, this divergence can '
in minor part at best be attributed to
secondary enrichment, providing,that
originally the ore deposits wereapprox-
imately equal as to amount and value of
c intent! erosion must have been equal*
ly effective iu its action on both, If
there weic parity first, and, disparity
now, enrichment must bave failed to
effect in one doposit and succeed ln the
second, Itoilglnaily disparity existed,
then surely secondary enrichment could
nut account for its continuation,
Secondary enrichment principles unquestionably are applicable to boihoi
two  adjoining ore deposits il to one.
Tbe enrichment which hns been effected
in one has, however, proceeded progressively ab initio.     Each pait and parcel
of that portion which has beeu eroded
from an oro  shoot as  it existed  origi-
nally,  was   at ono time the superficial
portion.    That which is now superficial
will  ut  S'inic future  period he of  the
past, while the  now  deeper   parts   will'
become superficial, etc., ed ind'efinitum.'
If secondary enrichment is to be. applied
at,   nil,   if must  bo resultant   from  a
primary imp iverishment of the superficial and solely therefrom,   lint that is
not'twiswering tho question.   It is pre-;
sumable tbut what disparity in "extent
of deposit and of value  of content may
now be in evidence, was originally cxis- I
lent, and Hint any difference" must  be
attributed to either the mediumfrom
wbi *b tbe values came or the  intensity
or magnitude of th se foioes which  determined primary extraction and sub-
Bi quont deposition."

(l 11* country correspondents are requested to write briefly and to lhe point
in preparing their accounts of quiet
weddings; tliey may, however, consider
themselves at perfect liberty to spread
themselves in giving details of any uproarious weddings that may occur to
break the monotony in their respective
neighborhoods. We further wish them
to remember thnt a groom attired in
conventional black, is sufficiently cov-
ered without any description of bis drcs3,
but a groom married in tar and feathers
is worthy of special rates and a lull column with headlines. If the happy
couple then depart, tliey should be permitted lo go without saying, but should
they begin to pull hair before the minister liao got out of hearing we want all

No answer bas yet been received by
the citizens of Sandon and other cities
to the telegram despatched to tl c Poet
piaster General a week ago. Three
Foiks lias been more fortunate, the
reply appearing undo- being signed by
II. M. Coulter, deputy postmaster
"This department not responsible for
reduetioriofnr.nl service to" tri-weekly,
Dep.irtment wus notified by C. P. Bly.
Unit ic was discontinuing its daily run
to three time * a week. Undor circumstances this department ia unable to
deliver mail when trains do not. run. 1
may s:iy that so far as being able to continue running of (rains as regards frequency, this department has no power
whatever. Advise you if you have any
grievance to slate same before Railway
Commission. This department quite
prepared to continue daily mail service
if daily train service is maintained."
This, then, throws tbe onus on lo tho
C.P.R. It appears outrageous that this
corporation should be allowed the privilege of asserting ita control over a
system which is owned by the people.
It means that an unwritten power is
vested in thia octopus of commerce to
ruin any section of the dominion as the
whim guides them. In any other line
of business a person or number of persons who contract to do a certain lliing
are legally he'd up for a fulfilment of
the terms of the contract. Tlie Post
Ollice authorities granted lo thu Slocan
the much-needed hoon of a daily mail
service, but the C.P.R. annuls that privilege apparently with the connivance
or, at any raie, without any objection
from the P.O. authorities.
Because it is claimed that the line is
not paying,' the Company mutilates
tlie service, demoralizes the incoming
and outgoing mails system, and consequently retaids tho progress of the
country. We claim that the line was
bourn sod by lhe government for the
very reason that the line waa not likely
to he Bolf-suppprling, and na a business
proposition wc urge that a company
has no right to exp,ct a bonus from tho
People when their business is a moneymaker.
But the people of tbe Slocan are determined to see thia matter through.
Indignation meetings havo heen held at
every town in the riding, and this oven-
a thoroughly representative convention
will bo he'd at Now Denver, on route for
which Messrs. 0. A'. White, C. White,
L. Pratt and W. McCluig left Sandon
(on foot) this morning.
Silverton does not intend that tho
C.P.R. Co. shall at its own pleasure
mutilate the hitherto existing service
without registering a vigorous protest.
At a mass meeting held in Ihat town on
Wednesday night, at which mine owners,
managers, miners, business men and
a large number of citizens were present,
the following resolutions were adopted
and forwarded by telegraph:
which meeting thc following telegram
was sent to yoa :
- " New* Denver, May 15' 11)07.
Resolution unanimously passed nt public meeting at New Louver: Business
outlook in B'.ocan decidedly improved

will kill what chance we had. Citizens

immediately prevented by yourinsi'ting

There is a gradual but sure revival of
Interest in the Slocan mines. Outside capital is now realizing Iho value
of our limber and fruit lands. Prospective investors are being driven away
by (ho delay and uncertainty in doing
business. Tin* following examples will
lllustiato the long delays iu mail delivery: A letter to Tiirco Forks, 5 miles
distant takes three days. Five days arc
consumed in the case of a letter fro
Nelson to here and reply. A letter to
Silverton, 4 miles distant requires from
four or live days to bring a reply. The
regular passenger bout passes New Den
vcr several limes a day en route lo
Slocan City and Rosebery where railroad
points connect. The stop for delivery
of mail-matter would entail but little
delay. From Rosebery to Nakusp there
are several freight trains daily. Fiom
the foregoing statements you will see
the extreme need of a daily mail service.
The citizens of lhe dislrict will greatly appreciate your immediate attention

The people of Silverton and vicinity

Standing that our daily mall service is

unanimously passed the following resolution :
Whereas lhe Slocan country just recovering from a long period of industria'

service. T. II. Wltsosr,

Baldos whsj nofloiig In preparing
plans for the changes In tbe fortress.
They embodied a temporary readjustment of the armament and alterations
in the ammunition house. The gate
leading to the river waa closed, and
the refuse from the fort was taken to
the barges by way of the main entrance. There were other changes suggested for immediate consideration,
and then there was a general plan for
tbe modernizing of thc fortress at some
more convenleut time. Baldos laconically observed that the equipment
was years behind the times. To the
amazement of the officials, he was
able to talk intelligently of forts in
all parts of the world, revealing a
wide and thorough knowledge and extensive Inspection. He had seen American as well as European fortifications.
The Graustark engineers went to work
at once to perfect the simple changes
be advised, leaving no stone unturned
to strengthen the place before an attack could be made.
Two, three weeks went by, and the
new guard was becoming an old story
to the castle and army folk. He rode
with Beverly every fair day, and he
looked at her window by night from
afar oft In the somber barracks. She
could not dissipate the feeling that be
knew her to be other than the princess,
although he betrayed himself by no
word or sign. She was enjoying the
fun of it too Intensely to expose it to
the risk of destruction by revealing
her true identity to him. Logically
that would mean the end of everything.
No doubt he felt the same and kept
his counsel, but the game could not
last forever, that was certain. A
month or two more and Beverly would
have to think of her return to Washington.
His courage, his cool Impudence, his
subtle wit, charmed her more than she
could express. Now she was beginning to study him from a standpoint
peculiarly and selfishly her own. When
recently she had sung his praise to Yetive and others she now was strangely
reticent. She was to-uuderstaud an*
other day why this change had come
over her. Stories of his cleverness
came to her ears from Lorry and An-
, gui'atf'and even from Dangloss. Sh��
was proud, vastly proud, of him in
these days.
The Iron Count alone discredited the
ability and the conscientiousness of
the "mountebank," as he named the
man who had put bis nose out of joint.
Beverly, seeing much of Marlanx,
made the mistake of chiding him
frankly and gnyly about this aversion.
She even argued the guard's case before the head of the army, imprudently
pointing out many of bis superior qualities in advocating his cause. Ths
count was learning forbearance ln his
old age. He saw the wisdom of procrastination. Baldos was lu favor, but
aome day tbere would come a time for
his undoing.
In tbe barracks he was acquiring
fame. Reports went forth with unbiased freedom. He established himself as
the best swordsman in tbe service, as
well as the most efficient marksman.
With tbe foils and sabers he easily
vanquished the foremost fencers in
high and low circles. He could ride
like a Cossack or like an American
cowboy. Of them all, his warmest admirer was Haddan, the man set to
watch him for tlie secret service. It
may be timely to state that Haddan
watched In vain.
The princess, humoring her own fancy, as well as Beverly's foibles, took to
riding with ber high spirited young
guest ou many a little jaunt to the
hills. She usually rode with Lorry or
Anguish, cheerfully assuming the subdued position befitting a lady-in-waiting apparently restored to favor on
probation. Sbe enjoyed Beverly's
unique position. In order to maintain
her attitude as princess tbe fair young
deceiver was obliged to pose In tbe
extremely delectable attitude of being
Lorry's wife.
"How can you expect the paragon to
make love to you, dear, if he thinks
you are another man's wife?" Yetive
asked, ber blue eyes beaming with tne
fun of It all.
"Pooh!" sniffed Beverly. "You have
only to consult history to find tbe excuse. It's the dear old habit of men to
make love to queens and get beheaded
for It. Besides, he Is not expected to
make love to me, How In tbo world
did you get tbat Into your bead?"
On a day soon after the return of
Lorry aud Anguish from a trip to the
frontier Beverly expressed a desire to
.1-11 nn* monastery of St. Valentine,
high on the mountain top. It was a
long ride over tbe circuitous route by
which the steep Incline was avoided,
and it was necessary for the party te
make un early start. Yetive rode with
Harry Anguish and his wife the countess, while Beverly's companion was tha
gallant Colonel Quinnox. Baldos, relegated to the background, brought up
the rear with Haddan.
For a week or more Beverly had been
behaving toward Baldos in the most
cavalier fashion. Her friends had
been teasing her, and, to her own intense amazement, she resented It. Tha
fact that she felt the sting of their sly
taunts was sufficient to arouse ln her
the distressing conviction that he had
become Important enough to prove embarrassing. While confessing to herself that it was a bit treacherous and
weak she proceeded to Ignore Baldos
with astonishing persistency. Apart
from tbe teasing, It seemed to her of
late that be was growing a shade too
He occasionally forgot his deferential
air and relaxed into a very pleasing but
highly reprehensible state of friendliness. A touch of the old jauntlness cropped out here and there, a tinge of the old
irony marred bls.otherwlse.perfect mlea
as a Bomier. His laugh was freer, his
eyes less under subjugation, his entire
personality more arrogant. It was
time, thought she resentfully, that his
temerity should meet some sort of
And, moreover, she had dreamed of
him two nights ln succession.
How well her plan succeeded may
best be Illustrated by saying that she
now was In a most uncomfortable
frame of mind. Baldos refused to be
properly depressed by his misfortune.
He retired to the oblivion she provided
and seemed dlsagreeubly content. Apparently It made very little difference
to him whether he wus lu or out of favor. Beverly Was In high dudgeon and
low spirits.
The party rode forth at an early hour
lu the morning. It was hot ln the city,
but it looked cold aud bleak on the
heights. Comfortable wraps were taken along, and provision was made for
luncheon at an Inn halfway up tbe
slope. Quinnox regaled Beverly with
stories ln which Grenfall Lorry was
the hero and Yetive the heroine. He
told her of the days when Lorry, a fugitive with a price upon his head,
charged with the assassination of
Prince Lorenz, then betrothed to the
princess, lay hidden in tbe monastery
while Yetive's own soldiers hunted
high and low for him. The narrator
dwelt glowingly upon the trip from the
monastery to the city walls one dark
night when Lorry came down to surrender himself In order to shield the
woman he loved, and Quinnox himself
piloted him through the underground
passage Into the very heart of the castle. Then came the exciting scene In
which Lorry presented himself as a
prisoner, with tbe denouement that
saved the princess and won for the
gallant American the desire of his
"What a brave fellow he was!" cried
Beverly, who never tired of hearing
the romantic story.
"Ah, he wus wonderful, Miss Calhoun. I fought him to keep him from
surrendering. He beat me, and I was
virtually his prisoner when we appeared before tbe tribunal."
"It's no weuder she loved him and
married him."
"He deserved the best that life could
give, Miss Calhoun."
"You hnd better not call me Miss
Calhoun, Colonel Quinnox," said she,
looking back apprehensively. "I am a
highness once lu awhile, don't you
"I Implore your highness' pardon,"
said he gayly.
Tbe riders ahead had come to a
standstill aud were pointing off into
the pass to their right. They were
eight or ten miles from the city gates
aud more thanbulfwuy up the winding
road that ended at the monastery gates.
Beverly and Quinnox came up with
lliem and found all eyes centered on a
small compauy of men encamped lu the
rocky delile a hundred yards from tbe
main road.
It needed but a glance to tell her
wbo comprised tbe unusual company.
The very raggedness of their garments,
the unforgettable disregard for consequences, the impudent ease with which
they faced poverty and wealth alike,
belonged to but one set of men���the
vagabonds of the Hawk and Raven.
Beverly went a shade whiter. Her interest In everything else flagged, and
she was lost in bewilderment. What
freak of fortune had sent these men
out of the fastnesses into this dangerously open place?
Sbe recognized the ascetic Ravone,
with his student's face and beggar's
garb. Old Franz was tbere, and so
were others whose faces and heterogeneous garments bad become so familiar to her lu another day. The tall
leader with the red feather, the rakish hat and tbe black patch alone was
missing from tbe picture.
"It's the strangest looking crew I've
ever seen," said Anguish. "They look
like pirates."
"Or gypsies," suggested Yetive. "Who
are they, Colonel Quinnox? What are
tbey doing here?"
Quinnox wus surveying the vagabonds with a critical, suspicious eye.
"They nre uot robbers or they would
be off like rabbits," he said reflectively. "Your highness, there are many
roving bands lu the bills, but I confess
that these men are unlike any I have
heard about. With your permission, I
Will ride down und tpiestion them."
"Do, Quinnox.   I am most curious."
Beverly sat very still and tense. She
Was ufruld to look at Baldos, who rode
up as Quinnox started Into the narrow
defile, culling to the escort to follow.
The keen eyes of the guard caught the
situation at once. Miss Colhoun shot
a quick glance at hlm as be rode up beside her. His face was impassive, but
she could see his band clinch the bridle
rein, and there was an air of restraint
in his whole bearing.
"Remember your promise," he whispered hoarsely. "No harm must come
to them." Then he was off into the defile. Anguish was not to be left behind. He followed, aud then Beverly,
more venturesome nnd vastly more Interested than the others, rode recklessly nfter. Quinnox was questioning
the laconic Ravone wheu sbe drew
rein. Tbo vagabonds seemed to evince
but little Interest iu tbe proceed lugs.
They stood away in disdainful aloofness. No sign of recognition passed
between them and Baldos.
lu broken, Jerky sentences Ravone
explained to tbe colonel that they were
a party of actors on their wuy to Edelweiss, but thnt they had been advised
to give the place a wide berth. Now
they were making the best of a hard
journey to Serros. whore tbey expected
but little better success. He produced
certain papers of Identification, which
Quinnox examined and approved, much
I to Beverly's secret amazement, The
princess. uud   the   colonel   eschuueed
glances and afterward a few words
in subdued tones. Yetive looked furtively at Beverly aud then at Bnldos,
as If to inquire whether these men
were the goat humors sbe bad come to
know by word of mouth. The two
faces were hopelessly noncommittal.
Suddenly Baldos" horse reared and
began to plunge as If in terror, so tbat
the rider kept his seat only by meaus
of adept horsemnusblp. Ravone leaped
forward and nt ttie risk of Injury
clutched the plunging steed by the bit.
Together they partially subdued the
animal and Baldos swung to the ground j
at Kavone'e side. Miss Calhoun's horse j
In the mea ntime had caught the fever.
He pranced off to tbe roadside before

She was thus iu u position to observe

from view by the body of the horse
they were able to put the finishing
touches to the trick Baldos bud cleverly
worked. Beverly distinctly saw tbe
guard nnd tbe beggar exchange bits of

than the words they were uuable to

over bim from head to foot.
She turned sick with apprehension.
Her faith had received a stunning blow.
Mutely she watched the vagabonds
withdraw ln peace, free to go where
they pleased. The excursionists turned to the main rond. Baldos fell back
to his accustomed place, bis imploring

More Efficient and Readier Than Ever
The Chronicle's naval correspondent
says: Tho taxpayer may estimate the
value of recent Admiralty administration by contrasting the state of things
prevailing at the time of tbe Kaiser's
telegram to Mr. Kruger and tbe instant readiness for war that now exists. After the Kruger telegram it
was resolved to mobilize a flying
squadron. The Bquadron was composed of units which Parliament were
assured were ready for war. Five
days and nights of heavy work were
consumed in effecting the mobilization. At that time the only sea-going
force in home waters fully manned
was the Channel fleet of seven or eight
battleships, and this fleet was the
training school for young seamen.
Superb Fleet.
To-day the Channel fleet combines
the eight battleships of the King Edward VII. class with six other modern battleships and four armored
cruisers. The Atlantic fleet, based upon Berehaven, will have six battleships and four armored cruisers, while
the first division of the new home
fleet is a battle squadron comprising
six ships, with the Dreadnought carrying the flag, and a group of armored cruisers, known as the fifth squadron, fit to lie in the line of battle
with the German fleet.
The skilled men on board will be
carried throughout the commission,
a number exceeding three-fifths of
the crew; the unskilled men shipped
on board will not be moved more often than every eight montliB. In addition to these squadrons are four
flotillas of destroyers, forty-eight craft
in all, and about thirty submarines.
Ready For War.
It stands to reason that so great an
addition to the actual fighting strength
of the navy, instantly ready for war, is
only obtained by extracting from the
whole navy greater exertion, longer
hours, and more work than was
thought necessary ten or even three
years ago. This, coupled with tbe cessation of foreign battleship-building
for eighteen months, is the true reason why a stronger navy at a smaller
cost U possible at the present time.

Travelers and commuters have often
to consider the trains us numbered ln
what appears to them Inexplicable
ways. For example, a request at the
Information bureau of the Grand Central station will elicit the reply thut
train No. 470 will not stop nt Peek-
skill or on the New Haven line thut
train No. 570 will stop on Saturdays
at Coscob, but not on other days; that
on the Pennsylvania train No. G34 will
stop at Metuchen, but not at Rahwuy;
that on the Delaware and Lackawanna
train No. 410 is nn Euston express, and
that train No. 399 Is the millionaires'

only at Newark. The traveler knows,
of course, thnt there are not so many
trains and only identifies them by the
hour of departure and arrival, so tills
informntiou Is usually vague enough
as glvcu by numbers to him, although
relevant enough to railroad men, for It
tells of the history of the trains.
When the railroads were new they
put on a passeuger train numbered 1
and 2 and a freight train numbered 3
and 4, and tbey Increased this service
according to the demands of traffic,
raisiug the numbers consecutively, the
even numbered trains running one
way, the odd numbered trains the other. As the exacting demands of new
business developed trains were Increased, and some of tbe old ones
were dropped, but their numbers, which
still lived in the minds of the operatives, could not readily be duplicated,
and they named them with still higher
numbers uutll their numerical titles
have lost relation to their source except In the minds of employees. But
as the railroads extended themselves
aud n generation of employees passed
they returned to the primal numbers
for their Important trains, so that

Bankers Say It Hat Practically Become a Loat Art
There Is one lost art among criminals, one trade which United States
secret service men have seemingly
wiped out to the very last man. This
Is the art of counterfeiting currency.
Kansas City bank officials say that for
eight years not one spurious bank
note worthy of passing comment has
been handled ln the money world.
They declare that the day of the successful counterfeiter has come to an
"Not a bank note which fools the experts Is on the market," said B. F.
Swlnney, president of the First National bank. "There Is counterfeit currency, plenty of It," he said, "but It's
a kind detected almost at a glance.
Inspection of It quickly reveals the
daws. Usually the work Is clumsy.
But not since tbe .notorious gang In
Philadelphia which made the famous
'Monroe uundred' was wiped out has
there been a really clever counterfeiter
at work. At least we have no record
of any.
"The 'Monroe hundred" was a $100
silver certificate with the face of President Monroe stamped apon It. It was
of a series of 1801, check letter D. Tillman register, Morgan treasurer. It
was an absolutely perfect counterfeit
Experts In the treasury department

numerous and were accepted so extensively thnt the government called
ln its entire lssne of the bill, amounting to several million dollars. Bven
now a Mouroe hundred Is occasionally
picked up, and It Is almost Impossible
to teK whether it Is genuine or noi.
"The only difference between tire
genuine bill and the counterfeit was
In the shape of the figures 3 and 4 nnd
the length of the bill In tbe figure 3
the lower loop did not extend up so
far toward the center ai the figure as
it should have extended. In tbe figure
4 the space between the base and tbe

By the centigrade thermometer zero,
or 0 degree, represents the freezing
point of water and 100 degrees the boiling point. By our Fahrenheit scale
the freezing point of water Is 32 degrees, and zero, or 0 degree, is the
temperature of a mixture of snow or
ice and salt, which was the greatest
cold known to Mr. Fahrenheit. When
we speak of degrees of frost we mean
the number of degrees below water's
freezing point. But sometimes thc
thermometer falls below 0 degree, and
then It is a case of degrees below zero.
Soon we will have another complication, for scientists hope to reach ubso
lute zero, which Is 4,ri9'i degrees below
Fahrenheit zero aud 273 degrees below
centigrade zero. Below that It Is sup

Coin Collections.
Tbe United States is said to have the
smallest collection of rare coins of any
government possessing a coin collection. At the present time the collection contains not more than 20.000
pieces, and the government expends
only $300 annually for additions to this
collection. The Blbllotheque Natlonale
of Parl3 owns 350,000 pieces, the Royal Cabinet of Coins at Berlla contains
270,000 coins, the British museum possesses 250,000, the Numismatic Cabinet of Munich contains 180,000 and tlie
Archaeological museum at Madrid contains 120,000 coins. There are thirteen
other government coin collections In

As a result of the new customs tariff oi ten cents per bushel on imported
flax seed, the price of flax seed is
now $1.23 per bushel in Winnipeg. At
this price it is claimed that flax growing is more profitable than wheat
growing, and it may be expected that
considerable quantities will be grown
iu   tbe   Canadian   Northwest   this  year.
Flax matures more quickly than
wheat and may consequently be sown
later. New settlers wbo have only
been able to sow a small acreage ol
wheat can, after the wheat is sown,
break up more land for flax seed.
The seed may be sown as late as the
middle of June, although May is considered the best month. In fact flax
seed seems to wait the farmer's convenience. It can be sown early oi
late, and as it is less liable to injury
from weather than any of the other
cereals, it may be harvested after the
wheat, oats and barley have been
gathered in.
Flax seed is especially well adapted
for nowly-broken land. Prof. Shaw of
the University of Minnesota, formerly
one of the professors of the Agricultural College at Guelpb, Ont., says in
reference to this: "The influence of
the ftax orop is helpful to the quick
reduction of the prairie sod, owing to
the peculiar nature of the fibrous
growth of the roots. These, penetrating every part, reduce the soil to a
disintegrated pulverulent mass, which
is greatly favorable to the gi,owth of
the succeeding grain crop other than
flax. It has also been noticed that
good crops of flax follow the breaking
up of a sod field. Why? For the
same reasons that good crops of flax
are grown on new breaking. The
yields fiom crops grown on common
sod land broken up are usually nt��"
so gnod as on new breaking, because
tbe elements of fertility are not usu
allv present to the same extent.''

English Authorities  In Dread of Hsr
Assassination  During Visit.
The visit of the Dowager Empress
cf Russia to England is a trial to
everyone's nerves. Tbe despatches
have given some idea' of the anxiety
that is imposed on Scotland Yard,
but it is only of late that one has
learned of the efitent to which the
Empress ia watched by Russian
The Dowager Empress takes great
interest in the sick and poor, and in
pursuance of her charitable leanings
she visited several hospitals. 8o
rigid was the surveillance maintained
by the Russian secret police in London that they even insisted on examining the roster of the patients, in
order to be sure that a disguised Anarchist had not obtained admission
for the purpose of attacking her Majesty.
Many Measures.
Two unsuspecting foreigners, who
could Bpeak no English, and who
were so unfortunate as to lose their
way in the vicinity of Buckingham
Palace, were arrested and quietly de-
I orted. The Russian Government
even stationed its own agents at Harwich, Dover, Folkestone and Southampton, to inspect all foreigners entering Great Britain during her Majesty's visit.
Her route by rail from Dover to
London was patrolled; the train by
which she arrived in London wit run
into a different part of the depot from
the usual one for arrivals; an J die
traveled across Europe in the Czar'a
bombproof train.
Armor-Plated Train.
The train consists of nine cars,
heavily protected by armor-plate,
nnd with very small windows, to
lessen the risk of bullets reaching the
interior. The cars are splendidly
furnished and are decorated outsid!
with the imperial eagle emblazoned
in gold. Forty attendants travel with
the train and guard it day and ni(.'ht
While the Dowager Empress is in
England the train remains at Calais,
awaiting her return to take her safely
back again to St. Petersburg.

Flaming   Mountain   In   the   Aleutian
According to advices just received at
Victoria, B. C, the volcano on Aku-
tan Island of the Aleutian archipelago, off the Alaskan peninsula, after
several years of inactivity is again in
eruption. J. E. Thwaites, mail clerk
on the steamship Dora, running from
Unalaska to Vadez, sends a brief but
vivid description of the eruption,
which occurred or was observed on
Feb. 22, and was accompanied by
earthquake shocks. He says:
A  Magnificent Spectacle.
"As the Dora passed the island the
volcano presented n ma<niifif*pnt spectacle. The conditions for witnessing
the awe-inspiring sight were perfect.
It was two o'clock in the morning.
Behring Soa was as smooth as glass
and the night was inky black. Suddenly as the ship rounded a bold, high
headland the beautiful sight burst into view. Although it was two a. m.
all sleeping officers and passengers
were awakened and crowded the deck,
where they remained for hours watch-
in? the awe-inspiring phenomenon.
"The amount of flame visible was
not constant, there seeming to be a
maximum and minimum stage, each
occurring about every 12 minutes.
Shortly before this occorrence Unalaska, but a few mMes distant, was
shaken by an earthquake of great intensity.
No Damage Resulted.
"No damage of any account resulted,
as all of the buildings are very low
and strongly built. Mount Makushin
volcano, a few miles to the westward
of Unalaska. has been active of late,
and it would surprise no oue if on
the next trip of the Dora it were
learned that old Mount Shishaldin,
near Unalaska, was in activity.
"Mount Akutan volcano has been
inactive for several years and the recent violent eruption has created consternation among the natives in that
vicinity. The natives say that every
eruption of this group of volcanoes
means that some of the adjoining islands will sink from sight, or that
a new island will be thrown up."
English As Written.
There has been received from St.
Petersburg the following quaint epistle, sent by a society styling itself the
"Association for Supporting Poor Educated Gentlemen."
"Dear Sir,���The present critical situation in russia has caused that a lot
of educated gentlemen even* with university education haa thrown out from
the society without a piece ol bread.
An association has been formed which
undertook to help such educated gentlemen which were Buffering from
starving in the way of establishing an
offio for cutting from rusaian and foreign papers against a trifle payment
to the sufferers.
"Being short of means Ior subscrib-
inr on all foreign papers, we are compelled to appeal to all Editors and

In an Irish court recently an old
man was called into the witness box,
and being infirm and just a little
blind, he went too far in more than

stairs that led to the box, he mounted those that led to the bench. Said
the judge,  good  humoredly:
"Is it a judge you want to be, my
good man?
"Ah, sure, your honor," was the
reply. "I'm an ould man now, and
mebbe it's all I'm fit for."
The judge had no ready retort.

Prussia, have been requested to advertise for a dentist who is willing to attend an elephant, an Inmate of the

her father was suddenly stricken with

Tbe Honest Physician is Anxious

Available Remedies.
The proposed legislation through
the Dominion Parliament for the regulation of the manufacture and sale
of patent or proprietary medioinea is
of the utmost importance, and it is
receiving a great deal of attention,
not only by the proprietary medioine
manufacturers, but also by the leading
doctors and druggists. Every manufacturer of reliable and high olass
remedies welcomes tht bill as a step
in tha right direction. The discussion
has brought out the fact that the best
physicians in Canada and on the continent approve of and prescribe Psychine in oases of the moat diffioult
character. In a recent instance of
very serious throat and lung trouble
the patient had been using Psychine.
Two leading United States specialists
were consulted, in addition to taro
eminent Canadian physicians. Upon
learning what the patient was using,
a sample of Psychine was taken and
analyzed, with tha result that the
physicians advised its continuance.
They prescribed no other medicine but
Psychine, with the result that the patient has fully reoovered and is a
splendid walking and talking advertisement for the wonderful ourative
power of a remedy that will "stand
up" before the keenest professional
criticism and analysis. As a builder
up of the system and restorer of all
wasted conditions, Psychine has no
equal, and the best and most earnest
physicians recognize this faot.
