A well-known newspaper man tells of
the time when he conducted an "Answers to Correspondents" column tor a
newspaper. For the convenience of
sucli subscribers as wished personal replies to their queries, tbe editor would
send responses direct when stamped envelopes were enclosed for  the  purpose.
Oue morning the editor was in receipt of two communications requesting
personal replies, one from an anxious
mother who wrote touching the proper
rearing of twins, the other from a farmer who asked for a method of getting
i id of grasshoppers.
The editor out of the fulness of his
knowledge wrote the two replies, but in
the press oUbusiness got them in the
wrong envelopes. To tho mother of
twins went this interesting recommendation :
Cover them carefully with straw aud
then set Are to it. \fter jumping in
the flames for a few minutes the little
peBts will be speedily done for."
The man who was troubled with
grasshoppers waB bidden to:
"Give castor oil regularly in modorate
doses and rub their gums with a bone."
ist provided himself with books, periodicals and proper implements. He iB
willing to spend money mil time to attend fruit meetings. Because of the
large quantity of fruit he controls he
receives consideration from buyers and
transportation companies.
But thoie are some disadvantages.
The large grower timet hire large numbers oi men for short periods of time.
Thus ho pays high wages for indifferent
services. In mlqed farming tlie ordinary help on the farm is used. Tlie
specialist find*- ft rlilizeis a costly and
not altogether satisfactory article. On
a farm where stock is kept the fertilizer
question is a sininle one. The specialist
has to wait long years before his investment oams liiiii ii dividend, and every
operation mast be paid for at top prices,
because labor nnd mateiial are hired
and bought for a special occasion. The
mixed farmer can do moBt of the work
of developing an orchard with tho odds
and ends of time which cost him little.
It is almost certain therefore that the
specialist will be the better fruit grower
but quite probable that the general
farmer will grow a barrel of apples at a
lower cost per Jharrel. if the applu
specialist makes more mouey than the
general farmer iu the aggregate, it is
because apple growing is more profitable than the usual branches of mixed
There is another compensation when
apple gloving ia included in mixed
farming that is not the less real because
it is something tangible. This is the
mental and physical development that
comes from a varied occupation. The
man who grows any one product exclusively will not get so much for himself
out of life, nor give his children such
opportunities as the man who grows
several products. And so the position
appears to be that special apple growing
will give the country the best fruit,
mixed farming the best mm.
In the aize of orchards as in all other
things, there is a happy medium. Five
acres is the smallest that can be recommended for commercial purposes, but
ten acres on the average hundred acre
farm would not place the owuer in tlie
specialist class.���Semi-Weekly Okan-
The result of the election throughout
Canada does not eflect the issue before
the people of. Kootenay. This great
province haa demands to be made and
insisted upon from the chosen representative of the people which can best
be obtained by electing Mr. A. S. Goodeve.
Compliance with this province's request for an impartial tribunal to investigate our claims for "better terms"
and a white British Columbia cannot be
obtained without a strong fight at Ottawa in which every part of the province ahoul do its part. The electors of
Kootenay should on Nov. 12 strengthen
the hands ol the three Conservative
members alieady elected, and also of
Mr. Burden who is pledged to see justice
done this province. They should also
record their disapproval of the unjust
delay that theie has beon in regard to
the dato of the election iu this constituency.���Nelson Daily News.
Large or Small Orchards,
The question of orcharding as a speciality, or as one branch of mixed farming, ia a subject of frequant discussion.
If ive consider merely the question of
production, the quoBtion must be decided in favor of the large orchard.
When tho investment becomes a matter
of really serious concern, tho grower is
more likely to interest himself in eyery
detail of orchard work. Cultivation,
spraying and pruning will be done on
time and properly.   They will  be con*
sidered part of the regular work and
not something that can he done when
no other work is pressing.   The special-

"From L,a Aoue to I'oltou was nut
twelve miles down the river, but by
the woodland route the distance was
more than doubled. The four men
walked In single file. Du Lhut leading.
De Catlnat walked behind, then Ephraim Savage, and then Amos, all with
their weapons ready and with every
souse upon the alert. By mlddny they
were more than halfwny and halted in
a (blcket for a scanty meal of bread
and cheese. For nn hour more they
picked their way through the woods,
following in the steps of the old French
Suddenly Du Lhut dropped upon his
knees nnd stooped bis ear to the
ground. He rose, shook his head aud
walked on with a grave face.
"Did you hear something?" whispered Amos.
Du Lhut put his finger to his lips nnd
then In an Instant was down upon his
face with his ear fixed to the ground.
He sprang up with the look of a man
who bas beard wbat he expected to
"Walk on," said he quietly, "and behave exactly as you have done all
"What is It, then?"
"In front of us?"
"No; behind us. Thoy nre following
us���two, I think. Do not look round.
Walk on as before. They are Iroquois."
"And pursuing us?"
"No; we are pursuing them."
"How far off are they?"
"About 200 paces, I think."
"They cannot see us then?"
"I think not, but I cannot be sure.
They are following our trail, I think."
"What shall we do then?"
"Let us make a circle and get behind them."
Turning shnrp to the left, he led
them In a long curve through the
woods, hurrying swiftly and yet silently under the darkest shadow of the
trees. Then he turned again and presently halted.
"This Is our own track," said he.
"Aye, and two redskins have passed
over it!" cried Amos, bending down
nnd pointing to marks whicli wore entirely invisible to Ephralm Savage and
De Catinat.
"A full grown warrior and a lad on
his first warpath," said Du Lhut.
"They are moving fast, you see, for
you can hardly see the heel marks of
tbelr moccasins. Tbey walked one behind the other. Now let us follow
them as they followed us and see if
we have better luck."
He sped swiftly along tho trail, with
his musket cocked In his hand, the
others following hard upon his heels,
but there was no sound and no sign of
life from the shadowy woods In front
of them. Suddenly Du Lhut stepped
and grounded his weapon.
"They are still behind us," he said.
"This is the point where we branched
off. They have hesitated a moment, as
j*ou can see by their footmarks, and
then they have followed on."
"If we go round again and quicken
our pace we may overtake them."
"No; they are on their guard now.
Lie here behind the fallen log, and we
shall see if we can catch a glimpse of
A great rotten trunk, all green with
mold and blotched with pink and purple fungi, lay to one side of where tbey
stood. Behind this the Frenchman
crouched, and his three companions
followed his example, peering through
the brushwood screen lu front of them.
Ten minutes passed, and there was
no sign of any living thing behind
"They are over in yonder thicket,"
whispered Du Lhut.
"Have you seen them?"
"How do you know, then?"
"I saw a squirrel come from his
hole Iu the grent white birch tree yonder. He scuttled back again as If
something hnd scared him. From his
hole he can see down Into that brushwood."
"Do you think that they know that
we are here?"
"They cannot see us. But they are
"Shall we rush for the brushwood?"
"Tbey would pick two of us off and
be gone like shadows through the
woods. No; we had best go on our
"But they will follow us."
"I hardiy think that they will. We
are four and they nre only two, and
they know now that we are on our
guard. We must push on fast now,
for where there are two Iroquois there
are likely to be 200 not very far off.
Ah, here Is the AJldaumo creek, where
lhe Indians set the sturgeon nets. It
ls still seven miles to Poitou."
"We shall be there before nightfall,
"I think that we had best wait for
nightfall before we make our way in.
Since the Iroquois scouts are out as
far as this it is likely that tliey lie
thick round Poitou, and we mny find
the last step the worst unless we bave
a care." He paused a moment with
slanting head and sidelong ear. "By
Sle. Anne!" he muttered, "we have not
shaken them off. They are still upon
our trail."
"You hear them?"
"Yes; tfiey nre no great way from
us. They will find that they have followed us ouce too often this time.
Slip off your moccasins, monsieur."
De Catlnat pulled off his shoes as
directed and Du Lhut did the same.
"Put them on as if tliey were
gloves," said the pioneer, and an in-
Rtnnt later Ephralm Savage and Amos
had their comrades' shoes upon their
"Yon ciin swing your muskets over
your back. So! Now down on all
fours, bending yourselves double, with
your hands pressing bard upon tho
earth. That is excellent. Two men
ran lenve the trail of four. Now conic
with me, monsieur."
He flitted from tree to tree on a line
which 3\*as/uarallel to but .a few* rards
distant from that of their comrades.
Then suddenly he crouched behind a
bush and pulled De Catlnat down beside him.
"Tbey must pass us In a few minutes," he whispered. "Do not fire If
you can help It." Something gleamed
In Du Lhut's hand, and his comrade,
glancing down, saw that he had drawn
a keen little tomahawk from his belt.
Suddenly he saw something move. It
flitted like a shadow from one trunk
to the other, so swiftly that De Catlnat
could not have told whether It were
beast or human. And then again lie
saw It, and yet again, sometimes one
shadow, sometimes two shadows. Then
for a few moments all was still once
more, and then in an Instant there
crept out from among the bushes the
most terrible looking creature that ever
walked the earth���an Iroquois qhief
upon the war trail. ���
He was a tall, powerful man, and
his bristle of scalp locks and eagle
feathers made him look like a giant ln
the dim light, for a good eight feet lay
between his beaded moccasin and the
topmost plume of his headgear. One
side of his face was painted ln soot,
ocher and vermilion to resemble a dog
and tbe other half as a fowl. His gun
was thrown forward, and he crept
along with bended knees, peering, listening, pausing, hurrying on, a breathing Image of caution. Two paces behind him walked a lad of fourteen,
clad and armed In the same fashion,
but without the painted face.
They were just abreast of the bush
when something caught the eye of the
younger warrior, some displaced twig
or fluttering leaf, and he paused, with
suspicion In every feature. Another
instant aud ho had warned his companion, but Du Lhut sprang out and
burled his hatchet In the skull of the
older warrior. De Catiuat heard a dull
crash, as when an ax splinters Its way
into a rotten tree, and the man fell
like a log, kicking and striking with
his powerful limbs. The younger warrior sprang like a deer over his fallen
comrade and dashed on Into tlie wood.
But an Instant Inter there was a gunshot among the trees In front, followed
hy a faint wailing cry.
"That Is his death whoop," said Du
Lhut composedly.
As he spoke the two others came
back, Ephraim ramming a fresh charge
into his musket.
"Ah, he's gone," said Du Lhut. As

As they passed on they caught a
glimpse of the lad lying doubled up
among the bushes where he had fallen.
The pioneer walked very swiftly until
he came to a little stream which prattled down to the big river. Here ho
slipped off his shoes and leggings and
waded down It with his companions for
half a mile or so.
"They will follow our tracks when
they find him," said he, "but this will
throw them off, for it is only on run-
ulng water tbat an Iroquois can find
uo trace. And now we shall lie in this
clump until nightfall, for we are little
over a mile from Fort Poitou, nnd It is
dangerous to go forward, for the ground
becomes more open."
And so they remained concealed
among the alders while the shadows
turned from short to loug, aud the
white drifting clouds above them were
tinged with tbe pink of the setting sun.
Du Lhut colled himself into a ball, with
his pipe between his teeth, and dropped
into a light sleep, pricking up his ears
and starling nt the slightest sound.

So clear It was aud so vivid that It was

himself and found that the night was
creeping on in the forest and that Du
Lhut had roused himself and wns ready
for a start.
"Have you beeu awake?" asked the
pioneer.   Have you heard anything?"
"Nothing but the hooting of the owl."
"It seemed to me In my sleep that I
heard a gunshot in the distance."
"In your sleep?"
"Yes. I hear as well asleep as awake
and remember what I hear. But now
you must follow nie close, and we shall

"He does so now," said Amos. "I
see a dozen of them drawn up in a line

"No sentinels, and all the men at
drill!" cried Du Lhut in contempt. "It
is as you say, however, for I can see
them myself, with tlieir ranks open
aud each as stiff and straight as a
pine stump. One would think, to see
them stand so still, that there was not
an Indian nearer than Orange."  '
Du Lhut advanced from the bushes
as he spoke, and the four men crossed
the open ground In the direction of the
lino of men who waited silently for
them in the dim twilight. They were
within fifty paces, and yet none of
them had raised hand or voice to challenge their approach. There was something uncanny In the silence, and a
change came over Du Lhut's face as
he peered In front of him.
"My God!" he screamed. "Look at
the fort!"
They had cleared the clump of trees,
and the outline of the blockhouse
should have shown up ln front of them.
There was no sign of It.   It was gone.
So unexpected wns the blow that
even Du Lhut, hnrdened from his
childhood to every shock and danger,
stood shaken and dismayed. Theu,
with an oath, in ran at the top of his
speed toward the line of figures.
As they drew nearer they could sec
through tbe dusk that It was not indeed a line. A silent and motionless
officer stood out some tweuty pnees ln

willow withes, some twenty of tbem,
naked all and twisted and screwed Into every strange shape which an agonized body could assume. For a moment the four comrades stared in silent horror at the dreadful group.
Then each acted as his nature bade
him. De Catiuat staggered up against
a tree trunk and leaned his head upon
his arm, deathly sick; Du Lhut fell
down upon his knees and said something to heaven, with his two clinched
hands shaking up at the darkening

Juarrel  In High Circles May  Impair
Efficiency of  British  Navy.
The unpleasantness alleged between
Lord Charles Beresford as Commander-in-Chief of the Channel fleet, and
Sir John Fisher is attracting a great
deal of attention at the present time
in the Mother Country. It is felt that
some steps wiii shortly be taken to
relieve a situation which, if correctly stated, may threaten the discipline
and efficiency of the British navy. It
is stated that in November last Sir
Percy Scott, who commands the First
Cruiser Squadron, made a signal
which Lord Charles Beresford ��� not
without reason ��� described as "contemptuous in tone and insubordinate
in character." For this offence the
Commander-in-Chief reprimanded Sir
Percy Scott in the presence of a junior officer, and caused the signal to
be expunged from the log.
Since that time the personal relations between the two officers have
become notorious, and it is common
knowledge that Admiral Lord Charles
Beresford and Admiral Sir Percy Scott
have not been on speaking terms, notwithstanding that they hold important commands in the same fleet.
The second incident, which carries
the dispute into another and a higher
quarter, is based on the report of tbe
meeting between Sir John Fisher and
Lord Charles Beresford at a recent
levee ��� an incident which is said to
have been witnessed by several officers in His Majesty's service, who put
upon it the only construction possible
at the moment.
These incidents are but the visible
symptoms of differences that have
arisen between Lord Charles Beresford and some of his colleagues,. The
difficulty of dealing with them, is
manifest. It is not easy to* decide
where courtesy fails and deliberate offence begins. The Admiralty can
hardly be expected to take action in
defence of the usual courtesies of
life, but it is of paramount importance to the Empire that the discipline
Df the British navy should be maintained.
This Year WIN See End of Cambridge
Wranglers and  Interesting Custom.
There will be no more Senior Wranglers at Cambridge University after
this term, nor, as a consequence, any
more wooden spoons, either.
As most people are aware, the
Wranglers are the best men of their
year at mathematics, their precise
position being regulated by a competitive examination extending over several days. The candidate who secures
the highest number of marks is dubbed Senior Wrangler, the others being
designated Second, Third, Fourth
Wrangler, and so on, in order of
merit. The last Wrangler on the list
of these "honor men," as they are
called, is the recipient of the far-
famed wooden spoon.
Formerly, this was a real spoon of
boxwood, prettily carved, mounted in
Bilver or gold, and emblazoned witli
the college arms. But for many years
past it has been getting bigger, until now it more nearly resembles a
navvy's shovel.
On degree day this curious emblem
is lowered from the gallery of the
Senate House, at the moment-, when
the victim goes forward to receive his
degree at the hands of the vice-chancellor. Attaohcd to the handle, and
dangling also at various points from
the cord that upholds it, are usually
to be seen a number of Dutch dolls,
polliwogs, nodding Chinese mandarins, and other similar toys.
The custom dates back to the time
before the institution of medals, when
gold and silver spoons were the usual
reward of superlative merit in scholastic attainments, just as to-day gold
and silver cups are presented for proficiency in athletics.
The wooden spoon of the mathematical tripos, it may be mentioned,
has its counterpart in the wooden
wedge of tiie classical tripos, the latter commemorating a certain Mr*
Wedgewood, who chanced to be at the
bottom of the honors list when the
examination in question was first instituted in 1S24.
Odors and Filth of the Thoroughfares
of Long Ago.
The automobile which glides noiselessly and smoothly along the well
paved streets of Paris would not have
had so easy a time some centuries
igo. Nowadays one of the flrst de-
nands civilization makes upon a
:ommunity is that the paving and
*Jie sewerage shall be good. It is
hardly possible for the twentieth century mind to conceive the conditions
of old time streets and of the inconveniences and dangers the public endured. Some idea of ancient Parisian
thoroughfares it given in Tighe Hopkins' "An Idler In Old France."
Lutetia, the name by which Paris
was first known, is said to have come
from a word meaning "mud." This
derivation is inexact, but its appropriateness was practically borne out
in the condition of the streets. Un-
paved, rough as woodland tracks,
flooded with wa-ote waters from the
houses, the roadways were populated
by pigs, dogs, geese, ducks and rabbits. In 1131 Philippe, son of Louis
le Groa and heir to the throne, was
killed while riding in the city streets
by being thrown from his horse by
an abbot's pig.
Snows and rains made the roadn
almost impassable, and the odor from
them rose far above the housetops.
It was said that on the darkest night
a traveler, out of his course, might
know by the stench how near he was
to Paris. The mud of the streets
gnined an early celebrity. "It sticks
like Paris mud" was a proverb ol
antiquity. If clothes were stained
with it one was advised to "cut ti��j
piece out, for it burns whatever it
In 1185 the king, standing by an
open window of the palace, viewing
a cart which had stuck in the mud,
was so sickened by the stench that
he gave orders to have the streets
paved. This movement inaugurated
the street department of Paris, but
the effort was a feeble one. The work,
was begun, but at the people's expense. The king offered only a slender contribution.* Taxes were levied
on duelists, on candles, boots, cake
and other things. But the enterprise
was soon abandoned.
It was not until 134�� Hint any systematic care was taken of the streets
and pigs denied the public ways.
Even then the cleaning was confined
to the highways. The smaller streets
were still filled with heaps and hillocks of rotting refuse.
The germ wise minis ot to-day m*,y

continuance of life came out of such
A Case of Bad Eggs.
Sir Gilbert Parker, who has been
in Canada recently, has profite*!
thereby, and relates many good stories of his experiences. One he tells
with great relish about an English officer and himself. At a small post
in Egypt the only other food besides
eggs to be had was tinned meat, and
so the eggs were an important item
of the dietary. Day after day the
eggs were like the curate's, "very
good in parts," but one morning they
were frankly bad. The officer, who
had power of life and death in that
particular spot, was determined that
in future the eggs must be fresh,
and the egg merchant was summoned between two sentries. "Open your
mouth," ordered the officer. Trembling, the egg merchant obeyed. Slowly and solemnly a foul and evil
smelling egg was poured in. Once
more the command was given, and
another potential rooster was gulped
down. The third followed in the
same way. Whoever else may hav*>
had bad eggs for breakfast after thai
Sir Gilbert Parker and the officer
had fresh, or even new-laid ones.
It wns the first time he had sung
in an Episcopal choir, and he felt
strangely out of place in the vestments he wore. The other chorister
looked comfortnh'.o enough, but the
new one was sure he would trip on
tlie skirts of the cassock when he
went up the chnncel steps, and he
knew that if he did not stop perspiring his clean linen cotta would be
sadly mussed. Thc opening prayer
had been intoned by the rector and
the singers wore in line waiting for
the * introduction to the processional
to be played when one of the basses
whispered in the new man's ear:
"You're a tenor, aren't you?"
"I suppose so," he replied, "but I
feel like a two inot."

It Still  Flourishes  In  Many Remote
Corners of the Earth.
Thnt cannibalism still exists in certain remote corners of the earth may
surprise people who were under the
impression that in the twentieth
century the restraining influences of
civilization were at any rate powerful enougli and sufficiently widespread
to stamp out entirely any custom so
revoltingly barbarous.
Since the beginning of the twentieth
century white men have been slain
and eaten on the island of St. Matthias, in the south seas; in New
Guinea, the New Hebrides, in New
Britain, one oi the Solomon islands;
along the Congo, in Central Africa;
in the wilds of Haiti and in Nigeria.
They have human sacrifices in Dahomey, but no cannibalism. In the
Kameruns the Maka tribe eat only
their  criminals.
When a "tambu," or chief's house
is dedicated on the island of St. Chris-
taval, one of the Solomon group, there
is sure to be a cannibal feast. If
a victim cannot be secured by a raid
on some neighboring tribe, he is generally selected from among the men
originally purchased by the chief. It
is not etiquette to let the doomed
man know his fate. He may have assisted in the erection of the very
house for which his life is to be forfeited. One blow with a club on the
head, aimed from behind, is all.
Sometimes a human body ia necessary for the launching of a war canoe,
and one of the men who help launch
it may be the victim.
The islanders of Santa Anna abstain
from eating human flesh, but make
a handsome living by purveying it
to their neighbors on adjacent islands.
Sometimes there is even a gleam of
tender feeling when the man selected
as the victim has lived so long among
them as to become almost one ot
With some cannibals the eating of
human flesh is part of their religion.
It must be practiced. With others it
means simply the addition of an extra dainty to an otherwise monotonous daily bill of fare.
Weird and wild are the rites in
those faraway spots where cannibalism is a religion. Strange music on
queer instruments, crooning songs,
unearthly yells and cries arc part of
the ceremonies. Men are eaten to
The wives of the Solomon islanders
are thoir slaves, to fondle or kill as
they please. Should a wife displease

Romance ot a Diamond King.
The well-known 8outh Africa,
mine-owner and millionaire, Mr. Joseph Benjamin Robinson, who is Ir:
eluded in the list of new baronets,
owes his wealth partly to chance and
partly to his capacity for seizing op
portiinitics. Forty years ago he was
a sharp youth of nineteen, engaged
in rearing horses, cattle, and sheep
Then came the discovery of diamond
diggings on the Vaal river, and he
was quick te try his 'prentice hand
in diamond dealing at the fields.
When the Kimberley mines were discovered three years later he was already looked upon as a capitalist.
Then Transvaal gold began to be talked about, the flrst ore being brought
down from Witwatersrand and panned at Kimberley in 1886. The next
day���a Sunday���Mr. Robinson was
off by coach. So, too, were others,
but they went on to Barberton���or
"De Kaap" ��� which was then booming. Fortune tempted Mr. Robinson
to alight at Potchefstroom, and proceed by cart to Witwatersrand, where
three days later he bought the Lang-
laagte estate, the mine which is now
the largest gold producer in the
world. For the last ten years Mr,
Robinson has resided mostly in England, his residence in Park Lane���

Foreign  Military Officers Bald to  Bt
Hard at Work,
Col. Lockwood has directed the attention of the British Government to
the presence of foreign military offl-
oers in this country who industiious-
ly supply their own Governments
with maps and photographs of certain
firominent territories in Great Bri-
ain. The ordinary English citizen
has very little idea of tho magnitude
or activity of tho foreign spies' operations. He appears ln numberless disguises���from the man and woman
whom our immigration authorities
might be Inclined to describe, judging by their sartorial appearances, as
"undesirables," to the highly polished, prosperous-looking person who is
cligikle to share the luxury and ex-
clusivenesB of tho best-appointed ballrooms in the West End of London.
Whatever may be their outward appearance, all are accomplished linguists, and while the majority speak
with a pronounced foreign accent,
many of them have, by long residence
in England and constant contact with
English-speaking people, managed to
shake off every Lace of thoir foreign
ancestry. Needless to say they are
all well provided with money, which
they are not above spending lavishly
as occasion demands. It may come
as more than a mere surprise to many
to know that some of those spiea who
reach these shores with names that
outrage British euphony, become in
time naturalized British subjects, with
names that a British baby can easily
enunciate. Perhaps if the authorities at our Home Office knew how
many of those "naturalizations"

be less spies in England and less
British subjects outside the walls of
our prisons. There is a huge traffic
in this naturalization business witb
which the authorities seem unable to
A few years ngo, it will be remembered, a well-known London solicitor
was found trafficking in this way with
disastrous results to himself. But the
traffic still goes on, so that a considerable number of persons of foreign origin and with mercenary motives become enrolled as British subjects, so as to allay suspicion. One
section of these spies operate among
working men, ingratiating themselves
particularly with those who know
something of military training, discipline and methods. In the workshops
they endeavor to start a discussion
on barrack-room life, the value of airships in war, the latest development
of the military rifle, signalling, life
aboard a man-of-war, and other such
topics. The man who appears to show
the widest and the most intricate
knowledge is singled out, and he and
the spy will possibly become fast
friends. At any rate, it will not be
the fault of the spy if such a consummation  is not effected.
Ferhaps the most dangerous spy of
all is the polished foreigner with a
university training and an encyclopaedic knowledge of men and things
He pursues his operations in a variety of ways. One favorite way is to
secure an appointment in an academy
devoted tn the training of younc
men for the nrmy and navy. He
comes with excellent credentials from
the professors of his university, and
being in every case a gentleman by
birth as well ns by education, he has
very littlo difPcnlty in obtaining a
"situation." Whilst he is skilful In
imparting knowledge in continental
and oriental lan_*ii*>ge.., he is also resourceful in discussing military topics, although he carefully hides thp
fact that he has nn intimate acquaintance with most of the military methods of Europe. His official and social position secures him an entree
to the home of military officers where,
by his agreeable manners, he in time
becomes an honored guest, enioying
the respect and confidence of all who
meet him. He receives invitations
to balls, garden parties, and social
receptions, gathering information as
he goes along which he carefully records and passes on to his own Government.

She flys a Canadian flag at her stern,

"that it is an international law thai

A number of extracts taken from
articles appearing in some of the leading British newspapers tell of the
wonderful growth and development of
this firm's mail-order business.
Messrs. Curzon Bros, have, bydint
of enterprising initiative, brought
their mail-order system of tailoring
to such a degree of excellence and
accuracy that the customer residing
in tha remotest part of the country
may ensure having as pertoct fitting
an outfit as the client calling at their
show-rooms and being measured by
one of their assistants. The firm are
prepared to send patterns to any applicant, so that intending customers
can readily satisfy themselves as to
the value offered before opening up
business with them. Undoubtedly
shopping by post is the thing of the
future. Men detest shopping. They
hnve not the feminine faculty of enjoying the tedious trying-on process,
and Messrs. Curzon Bros, have perfected a system to reaoH, the man who
cannot  reach  his  tailor.
As proof of the satisfaction given
to customers by this firm, they nre
constantly in receipt of testimonials
from clients residing in nil parts of
the Empire. All trades and professions are represented���the Church.

The spirited refrain took hold upon
the popular taste, and it quickly
spread over Fncland. with variations
in the wording suitable to the localities it was used in, and the cause
which the demonstrators who sang it
were contending for.
With tho birth and rise of the Chartist movement, it received a new lease
of life, boine sung by scores of thousands of excited men, who assembled
in various parts of the country, armed with _nins or.d pikes, and carrying

More osp-cially was this the case at
Newport, on Nov. 4, IS,*.!), when the
miners marched upon the town from
the surrounding hills in strict military formation, keeping step to the
air sung to words of their own.

tore down the .railings round Hyde

the right of public mooting tbere, in

Latest Society Fad.
Live "Teddy boars" have usurped
the monkey, tho Pekingese pug, the
"Pom," and poodles in the boudoirs
of tho "smart" women of the West
End of London. My lady of the Metropolis has not been content with the
imitation kind so beloved of the fair
sex in the United States, but insists
upon the real thing or nothing. Just
at present the proud owners of these
pets are busy arranging Teddy Bear
"at homes." How long the craze will
last it is impossible to say, but Ihe
little brown woolly animals will probably hold sway in fashionable English
drawing-rooms for a year or so, and
then go the way of the countless fads
which preceded it.
The baby bears which are sold in
the London market come from Borneo. The fad is an expensive one,
for not much in the boar line can bo

most popular at about nine months of

Story of the Climb as Told by th*
Tourist and the Guide.
"ne was touring the Bernese Ober-
land. At the Bear hotel in Grindewald
a mountaineer sat In lbe hall, a glass of
beer before him and bis feet, in tbelr
hobnailed mountain boots, extended toward the fire. The mountaineer bad
just made an ascent of the Tiger, and
be talked like this nbout it:
" 'Well, well, well, a climb Indeed���
four hours of Incessant step cutting
with au ax on an Ice siope as smooth
as glass and as sleep as a wall. Look
at tbis hunch of edelweiss. 1 spied it
on the edge of a dreadful precipice.
My guide refused to let me pluck It;
said it was madness. For bis part, he
would not risk his life so foolishly.
But at last, what with eloquence and
an offer of 200 francs, 1 persuaded him
to come along. The advance was awful.
One misstep meant death. But 1 secured the flower, when suddenly tbe
guide's foot slipped, ie feK and began
to roll townrd the edge. But I thrust
my ax firmly Into the ice and, bracing
myself, seized the rope tbat bound us
together, and���the man was saved.'
"And at the same time in the hotel
kitchen the guide was' giving another
version of the ascent in words like
" 'Well, well, what a customer! Another like that chap and I give up the

its sensational size, the records of its

years, tbe consternation ouce spread
throughout the world by the belief
that it would destroy the earth, make
it the most famous comet ln history.
In 1C82, during the reign of Charles
IL, a comet appeared of extraordinary
Bize, which was observed by Newton,
Halley and other astronomers of the
' time. Halley followed its course
among the stars and, comparing bis
observations with the records of previous comets, came to tbe conclusion
that the comets of 145G, 1531 and 1601
were but different appearances of the
same object. He staked his reputation on a prediction Ihat the comet
would return In nbout seventy-flve

K   Battle   to   the   Death   Between    a
Donkey and s  Wolf.
A combat of most unusual character occurred near Paso del Norte,
Mexico. The participants were a
burro, or little Mexico donkey, and a
wolf of a very large species, known as
the Iobo. During the night his burro-
ship had broken out of the stable
and wandered several miles out into
the country. His owner, going to
seek him, was an eyewitness to his
fight with the wolf and thus describ-
2d it:
"My burro was quietly grazing in
a littlo grassy dell lying between
two walls of jutting, ragged rock
when the wolf came trotting along
with his head close to the ground,
ns if trying to trail something���tins
being characteristic of that species.
He did not see Dandy���as I call my
burro���until ho was nearly on him,
and it was not till then that, raising
his head, the latter saw the wolf.
The moment they set eyes on each
other I could see that a fight would
Buroly follow. The wolf, with his
jaws snapping and growling ferociously, made at Dandy, who wheeled shnrnly around and- let fly with
his heels, tumbling his enemy over
and over and nearly pounding the
life from him. This performance waa
rep��atod again and again until the
wolf seemed to realize that, the job
on band wns dccidedlv more than he
had bargained for. The last contact
of Dnndy's heols had sent him with
a crash against the hard rocks that
walled in the doll and stunned him
for n minute or two. So, on recovering, he changed hia tactics. Running
up to Dandv, he waited until those
terrible heols wore elevated in the
air. when, iumping around with surprising agility, he dodged tlie kick
"id made for his antagonist's throat.
The latter, however, was on the lookout, and the lobo found that the
burro's other end was also armed for
battle. Before ho could fasten on
any part of tbo livelv animal be was
caught, at th" bno',- of bis ears bv n
set of nowerful fpflth, and in a second
his nock was broken. No'withstnnd-
ing tbe fact, that tho wolf wns killed
instantlv, Dandv held on to him and
occupied himself for several minutes
with beating his vanquished foe's
bo.iy un nnd down on the gTOund.
Then, feolinf snt'sfiod that life was
extinct, he dronnod the carcass, and
upon calling him he followed me
home as though nothing had happened to disturb bis equanimity. Alter

Fat  Babies Out  of  Fashion.
The fat baby is at a discount. He
is no longer the admiration of his
fond mother and the envy of other
babies' mothers.
At tho Edmonton Babv Show the
medical officer of health, Dr. I aw-
rence, refused to hnve the babies
weighed. The fat, pasty baby bad not
a chance.
The Edmonton church schools wore
the scene of the conflict. A row of
carriages was drawn up outside the
door, but tliey wore bnby carriages���
perambulators, mailcarts and oven a
small wheelbarrow. Inside the ball
a mighty roar greeted the casual
visitor. It was not the babies cry*'
ing���they were in tho best of spirits���
but the mothers genially discussing
the merits of their respective treasures.
One mother, the proudest woman
in the room, sat in state on a large
ihair, with beautiful triplet girls on
her knee.
Several lots of twins were to be
seen, and a pretty little couple dress-
3d in pink would certainly have won
the prize for the bost complexions if
one had been offered.
Each baby wns labeled with its
mother's name and address, the date
of its birth, and the food it had been
brought up on.
Dr. Lawrence, who organized the
show, considers those exhibitions to
be one of the most radical remedies
for high infantile mortality.
The babies to be prize-winners
must have "well-developed and
straight bones, a bright color and a
general appearance of health." Excessively fat and flabby babies have
not a  chance  in  competing.

Measuring the Complexion.
The color of tho hair, eyes and
skin is measured by a now instrument���a simplified Lovibond tintometer���devised by J. Gray. The observer looks at the object under test
through a tube and interposes Lovi-
bond's standard color glasses in front
of a white surface at one side of the
aperture until the glasses transmit a
color exactly corresponding to that
of the hair, eyes or skin. The exact
composition of the color is then obtained from the readings on the standard glasses.

of the iron is converted into a mixture of ferrous and ferric phospha'.es

A Bidden Wf-.ru Int..
It Ib recorded In history that when
Darius, king of Persia, lnvaiieii Scytllla
the ruler of the latter country, Idan-
(liurns, sent hiin a message consisting
of n mouse, a frog, a bird, an arrow
ond a plow. The wisest men in tbe
army puzzled over the meaning of it,
which was conjectured to be that tbo
empire was surrendered. It was supposed that tbe mouse signified the
dwellings, the frog the waters, the
bird the air, the arrow the arms aud
���fho plow tho land.
But it turned out eventually that
tbe interpretation intended was that
unless Darius and his soldiers could liy
like birds, burrow like mice or betake
themselves like frogs to the wnter tbey
would never escape the weapons of the
Scythians and make their way out of
tlie country.
Why They Waited.
A story is told whicli couples tho
names of Princess Mathllde uud the
great painter Gerome. The princess
aud the painter bad both been Invited
to a dinner party. The princess arrived
punctually; tho painter tarried until
long after tho dinner hour was past.
The guests concealed their impatience
as best tliey could, until at last the
princesu suddenly said: "Why, I nearly
forgot Ouly thia morning I received
a telegram from Gerome, who ls in
Spain. He Is unable to come tonight."
"But why did you not tell us before,
princess?" cried all the guests together,
"Because I was not yet hungry."
1 Perfectly at Rome. In a Temperature
Below the Zero Mark.
When cold storage was flrst Introduced iuto this country the chilly storage rooms were absolutely free from
rats .aid mice. The temperature was
kept considerably below the freezing
point, anil in the cold surroundings rats
end mice were unable to live.
In time, however, the rich stores
packed a,ray there proved too tempting for thieving rodents, mid tliey began to maku inroads into the cold storage rooms, at flrst paying a hurried
call and ua soon aa they had taken u
few uibbies rushing with a shiver out
inlo warmer places.
Gradually, however, these visits were
lengthened and became more frequent,
not without considerable mortality
nmong the rets, but In the ond there
grew into being wbat is known as the
"cold storage rat." This animal has
neither tall nor ears, both having been
frozen for his ancestors, resulting in
their total loss to the families of the
first Intrepid pire.tcs of cold storage.
These earless and tailless cold storago
rats are perfectly nt home lu a teniper-
nture below the zero mark. This, I
think, Is one of the most striking examples of how the animal kingdom In
the wise economy of nature can adapt
ftsclf to the most severe surroundings,

"Why do you treat mo with such
coldness?" he pleaded. "What have I
done to merit your displeasure? I refuse to release you without an anawer."
"Remove your nrms from around my

"But, surely, you have some reason
for this sudden change lu your attitude toward me. Give me a chance.
Lot me know bow 1 have offended you.
I must havo an answer."
"I* heard you telling that Ka Ellppe
���Woman that my face Would make a

"Did you? Wby didn't you listen'to

Lights play an Important part on
the stage of the modern theater, and
they have many uses. The spot light,
for instance, is employed to cast a circle of light upon the stage where a single person Is to be brought into especial prominence. It consists of an arc
electric light Inclosed in a cylindrical
hood about tlie diameter of a stovepipe and provided at the open end
with a condenser lens for the purpose
of concentrating tbe rays upon a small
A flood light Is an arc in a,rectangu-
lar box painted white upon the inside
to serve as a reflector. It is supposed
to flood the stage with light; hence Ita
Hunch lights nre clusters of gas or
Incandescent lights either arranged
within a reflector or exposed naked.
They ure used back of a sceno behind
doorways, where light is needed oil
tho stage to represent the illumination of that part of a dwelling not
shown. For the same purpose "strip"
lights are used���rows of Incandescent
lights fastened to a strip of wood provided with a hook, by which It may
be hung to tbe back of a scene when
".Side" lights are Incandescent lights
arranged ou cither side of the proscenium arch. Sometimes tbey nre built
within the arch or they are arranged
to bo swung outward wben the curtain ls raised.
! The footlights are familiar to nil,
and the "border" lights are those hung
over the stage directly above tbe scenery, shutting off the top of the stage.
'These are arranged in a trough like an
inverted "U" to cast their light down
upon tbe stage. These are practically
all of the lights used upon the stage of
a house, though magic lanterns nre
employed at times for the simulation
of water effects, moonlight ripples and
lightning. The old fashioned calcium,
using tho oxyhydrogen gas, is so seldom employed in the modern theater
aa to call for no comment.

The modifications that plants undergo are sufficient to convince ono
of the great possibilities which await
those who choose to make use of
them t0 secure a large return from a

in proportion to size dwarf trees are
moro fruitful than standards, that
they como into bearing sooner and
are therefore of special value for use

Pep-fifa, Peep's* or Want.
A. correspondent (an American, we
presume) writes to ask how he shall
pronounce the name of the excellent
diarist we occasionally quote. "Do
you," he asks, "call Pepys 'Peppls' or
'Peepies' or 'Chumley' or what?" Even
among contemporary London talkers
there ls disagreement, but the question
i should be settled by one Mr. James
I Carcasse, whom Pepys kindly took in
his boat to view the great fire and who
��� returned the compliment by a somewhat virulent set of verses iu his vol-
I ume "Luclda Intervalla."
; Get thee behind me, then, dumb devil, be*
i fsone,

: Him  I must praise who open'd hath my
I llrs,
. Bent ma from navy to the ark by Pepys.
The rhythm Is dreadful, but tho
rhyme ls conclusive, and the man who
rowed ln the same boat with the diarist called him "I'iyps." ��� London

authority also gives Peps as the correct pronunciation of his name���Ed.]
For Tender Feet.
After dancing for a little while many
people's feet get very tender and uncomfortable. If you are troubled lu
this way, try this plan: Put Ivy leaves
next the soles of your feet, Inside the
stockings. Cut out the hard center rib,
lay the leaves as smoothly as possible,
I draw your stockings carefully over so
as not to disarrange them, and see that
your shoes fit just comfortably. For
walking lu warm weather this ls an ex-
| ccllent plan and prevents the feet from
getting tender.

���-Boston Ideaa,
Influencing a Beeiainn. ~
An old treasury department official
tells how the late Judge Gray decide;!
one of the earliest customs classification cases to come before the supreme
court of tho United States. Tbe article
under consideration was a preparation
of fish which had been assessed for
duty as a sauce. The Inferior courts
had given conflicting opinions as to
whether It really was a sauce, aud by
the time the Issue reached the dignified
supreme ceurt tho decisions either way
were voluminous enough to confuse the
most clear headed Jurist.
Judge Gray examined the article, according to the Philadelphia Ledger, but
couid not make up his mind. Ills colleagues were equally undecided. When
things came to a standstill It occurred
to Judge Gray that a housewife would
probably be better qualified to decide a
matter of this kind. He took a sample
of the article home to Mrs. Orny.
"Nonsense; that's no sauce: It's flan!"
she said, and tbe next day the supreme
court of tbe United States solemnly decided the article was not a sauce.
