Rock-Drilling West Was
Admittedly Best Ever
Held in West.
When the news waa (lushed into town
last Friday that A. J. MoGilliyray and
A. Kricksonhad won the big rock* drilling
contest al tho Spokane Interstate Fair
many there wore who could scarcely
believe it, It appeared too good lo bo
tin*., and yet on culm reflection tho
goid firm showed hy tho team was
gufiiciont to warrant championship aspirations, loi !md not the two men at
tlieir first appearance in public together
put tip a wonderful performance in so
signally defeating the Faulds brothers'
record hole in Sandon, and this without
any previous' practise together. Since
then both man have run in double harness and their work at private practise
was Btifli that tho Review scribe has
publicly tipped them for every event
they h ive entered.

if McDonnell and Isenor, of Silverton,

days on tlie off chance of a stray challenge, ami we understand that it ia highly probable that either Butte, Sumpter,
or Coe ir d'Alenes team will challenge
again for lho championship, in which
evcnl Ma,*., has insisted that the match
shall take place cither at Sandon, Silver-
ton or K.islo.
Tho rock which was the centre o! (he
big con list last week was a granite block
secured from a quarry on tho little Spokane liver, squared two foot on tho top
and varied from 51 to 55 inches in depth.
This vols proved much too soft and
shallow f ir many o! tlie teams, ns nearly
all bnko through and had to start a
second ho'.o. We have several pebbles
lying around Sandon whicli the Spokane
people 0 in'gaiublo on cannot bo bored
through, and (or futuic contests tbe directorate should boar this in mind.
On tho first night of tho big event
both the Goldfleld's team and thc Galium tin m created an iinmenso sensation bv diiliing sheer through Ihe rock,
the form r sinking their steel G15ii and
the latter 5170, and much iiion**}' was
wagered that the latter would win tbo

Their gait was changed from a 58 to a

spellbound for a couple of minutes, and
when they saw tlie men staying with it
and smiling confidently tbe wildest en-

immense concourse rose to its feet, and
n thousand words of praise were hurled
at the boys who were putting up an exhibition the like of which was never seen.

miner, "I never would havu thought it.
They're wonders. Oh! but they can't

were staying with it and pouring tremendous li'ows with clock-like precision

Kaslo Fruit Fair Will Become
The Leading Kootenay
Lake Fall Fair.
Tim Kns'oFair has been a succe.s
and Kaslo dei-ervea all praise for ita
enterprise. But a Kaslo district exhibit at the Nelson Fair would bo
worth infinitely more as an advertisement. Tlie fniit growing capabilities of Kai-lo have been indeed
advertised, but to whom ? Onlv to
the pcoplo of Nelson and Sandon
who were well aware of it before���
Nelson Daily Canadian.
In tho main our contemporary is correct, but tho writer surveys tlie ground
broadly and sees things through Nelson
gla-BCs focussed to suit the occasion for
them, Nelson has just had a taste of
something which was uot to its liking,
and it is becoming a weo bit scared lest
Kaslo should grow too great a centre of
importance in the fruit-growing business
and detract from its own, and this hns
inspired severaljbon-iiiola of the abovo
transparency within tlie upper storey of
our culom's editor of late.
Granted that a Kaslo exhibit at lhe
Nelson Fair would have been wo.tl,
something as an advertisement (to Nelson), there i. yet to he Uken into consideration tho fact that it is ever up to
Kaslo to work out its own salvation
and push its acquisitions, natural re-
sources and fruit-growing possibilities
beiore the world first-handed. A central
Fair to have a far-reaching effect, and
albeit lhe desfderatuin to he striven for,
should bo conducted upon lines which
insure a fair shake for all outside competing districts'. Tliis the people of
Kaslo do not a hint was the case at tho
Nelson Fair of '00, and th. ir grievance
was endoricd by other sections, so it is
not to^he wondered at that Kaslo district should fail to lake a more than
passing interi st in the Nelson Fair this
And Kaslo did not exhibit! Ah,
there's tho rub 1
Wo agice witli the Canadian that Ihe
people of Nelson and Pandon are perfectly well aware of tlie capabilities of
Kaslo, but it does not necissarily follow
that its wider advertising po*sibilitiea
aro taken from because it did not
show al Nt lson, whhh we tako it is tho
hint [conveyed in lho extract above.
On the contrary, tho fact of and the
cause for thoir not exhibiting this year
has in i self been a Btibstant-al advertisement whicli has helped out wonderfully. A district to stand on its dignity
and take the stand Kaalo did must havo
tlie goods behind it, and those who aro
liktly to associate Ihemse'vos with any
district in the fruit business are shrewd
enough to read between the lines, As
lo publicity, there happen to ba two
local newspapers in this district whoso
editors can be depended upon to say lho
good wortl in sheets with far greater
circulations than enjoyed by our cotem,,
but Ihat is en passant.
We take it that all these fall faTrs are
gotten up for tho particular laudation
and glorification of the c'ty in whicli the
fairs aro held aud when a smaller competitor from an outside point enters tho
arena nnd skins them 1 adly, it is not
altogether palatable; hot when the district outsido tlieir own small world

At tufa Juncture Lorry and Count

won far more than tbe honor and love
I can bestow upon you. They tell me
you are a prisoner, a suspected traitor.
It shall be my duty nnd Joy to explain
your motives and your actions. Have
no fear. The hour will be short and
the fruit much the sweeter for the bitterness."
"Thunder!" muttered Harry Anguish.
"You don't Intend to slap him into a
cell, do you, Gren?" Baldos overheard
the remark.
"I prefer that course, sir, until It has
been clearly established that all I have
said to you is the truth. Count Marlanx must be satisfied," snld he.
"And, Baldos, is nil well witb her?"
asked the one we have known as Ravone.
"Sbe ls being put to bed," said Baldos, with a laugh so jolly that Ravone'g
lean face was wreathed In a sympathetic smile. "I am rendy, gentlemen."
He marched gallantly away between
the guards, followed by Dangloss and
Colonel Quinnox.
Naturally the Graustark leaders were
cautious, even skeptical. They awaited confirmation of the glorious news
with vnrylng emotions. The shock produced by tlie appearance of Prince
Dantar. lu the person of the ascetic
Ravone was almost stupefying. Even
Beverly, who know the vacabonri Setter than all the others, had not dreamed of Rovone as the fugitive prince.
Secretly die had hoped ns long as sbe
could that Baldos would prove, after
all, to be no other than Dantan. Thla
hope had dwindled to nothing, however,
and she was quite prepared for the
revelation. She now saw that he was
Just what he professed to be���a brave
but humble friend of the young sovereign, nnd she wns happy ln the
knowledge that she loved him for what
he was and not for what be might
have been.
"He is my best friend," said Ravone,
as they led Baldos away. "I am called
Ravone, gentlemen, and I am content
to be known by that name until better
fortune gives me tlie right to use nn-
otber. You can hardly expect a thing
in rags to be called a prince. There ls
much to be accomplished, much to be
forgiven, before tbere ls a Prince Dantan of Dawsbergen again."
"You are faint and weak," said Lorry, suddenly perceiving his plight
"The hospitality of the castle ls yours.
The promise we made n few days ago
holds good. Her highness will be proud
to receive you when you are ready to
come to the throne room. I am Grenfall Lorry. Come, sir; rest and refresh
yourself In our gladdened home. An
hour ago we were making ready to rush
Into battle, but your astonishing but
welcome news ls calculated to change
every plan we have made."
"Undoubtedly, sir, It will. Dawsbergen hardly will make a fight to release Gabriel. He ls safe In your dungeons. If they want him now they
must come to your strongholds. They
will not do It, believe nie," said Ravone
simply. "Alas, I am faint and sore, as
you suspect. May I lie down for an
hour or two? In that time you will
hove heard from your wardens, and my
story will be substantiated. Then I
shall be rendy to accept your hospitality as it is proffered. Outside your city
gates my bumble followers lie starving. My only prayer Is that you will
send them cheer and succor."
No time was lost ln sending to the
���rates for the Btrollers who had accomplished the marvel of the day. The
news of Gabriel's capture was kept
from the city's Inhabitants until verification came from the proper sources,
but those ln control of the affairs of
���state were certain that Ravone's story
was true. All operations came to a
Htandst.111. The movements of the army
were checked. Everything lay quiescent under the shock of this startling
"Hang It," growled Anguish, with a
quizzical grin as Ravone departed under the guidance of Count Halfont
himself, "this knocks me galley west.
I'd like to have had a hand ln It It
must have been great. How the devil
do yon think that miserable little gang
of tramps pulled It off?"
"Harry," said Lorry disgustedly,
"they taught us a trick or two."
While the young princess was being
cared for by Yetive's own maids ln one
of the daintiest bedchambers of the
castle Beverly was engaged ln writing
a brief but pointed letter to her Aunt
Josephine, who was still In St. Petersburg. She had persistently refused to
*Ult.��__iiW"_j____. but bad.KrUiejAuiaay
Impc'rntive letters commanding her
niece to return to the Russian capital.
Beverly now was recalling her scattered wits in the effort to appease her
aunt and her father at tbe same time.
Major Calhoun emphatically had ordered her to rejoin her aunt and start
for America at once. Yesterday Beverly would have begun packing for
the trip homo. Now she wns eager to
remain In Graustnrk indefinitely. She
was so thrilled hy joy and excitement
that sho scarcely could hold the pen.
"Father says tlie United States papers nre full of awful war scares from
the Balkans. Arc we a part of the Balkans, Yetive?" sho asked. "He snys I'm
to eomo right off home. Says he'll not
pay a nickel of ransom If the brigands
catch me, as they did Miss Stone and
that woman who had the baby. He
says mother is worried half to death.
I'm just going to cable him that It's all
oft, because he says If war breaks out
he's going to send my brother Dan over
hero to get mc. I'm having Aunt Josephine send him this cablegram from
St. Petersburg: 'They never fight in
Balkans. Just scare each other. Skip
headlines, father dear. Will be home
soon. Beverly.' How does that sound?
It will cost a lot, but he brought It
upon his own head. And we're not in
the Balkans, anyway. Aunt Joe will
have n fit. Please call an A. D. T. hoy,
princess. I want to send this message
to St. Petersburg."
When Candace entered the princess*
boudoir half an hour later she was far
from being the timid youth who first
came to the notice of the Graustnrk
cabinet She was now attired In one
of Beverly's gowns, and it was most
becoming to her. Her short, curly
brown hnlr was done up properly; her
pink and white complexion was as
clear as cream, now that the dust of
the road was gone; her dark eyes were
glowing wltb the wonder and interest
of nineteen years, and she wus, all in
all, a most enticing hit of femininity.
"You are much more of n princess
now thau when I first saw you,"
smiled Yetive, drawing her down upon
the cushions of the window seat beside her.
"But she wns such a pretty boy,"
protested Dagmar. "You dou't know
how attractive you were in those"���
Candace blushed. "Oh, they were
awful, hut they were comfortable. Oue

bo a vagabond. 1 wore them for more
than a week."
"You shall tell us nil about It." said
Yetive, holding thc girl's ban:1. Ill hers.
"It must have been a most interesting
week for you."
i "Oh, there ls not much to tell, your
highness," said Candace, suddenly reticent and shy. "My stepbrother ���oh,
how I hate hlm!-- hud condemned me to
1 uie* because he thought I was helping
Dantan. And I was helping him, too,
all that I could. Old Bappo, master of
the stables, who has loved me for a
hundred years, he says, helped me to
escape from the palace at night. They
were to have seized me the next morn-
1 lug. Bappo has been master of the
stables for more than forty years.
Dear old Bappo 1 He procured tho
boy's clothing for me, and his two sou3
accompanied me to the bills, where I
soon found my brother and his men.
We saw your scouts and talked to
them a day or two after I became a
member of thc band. Buppo's boys are
with the band now. But my brother
Dantan shnll toll you of that. I was
so frightened I could not tell what was
going on. I have lived In the open air
for a week, hut I love It. Dautan's
friends nre all heroes. You will love
tbem. Yesterday old Franz brought n
message luto the castle grounds. It
told Captain Baldos of the plan to seize
Gabriel, who was ln the hills near your
city. Didn't you know of that? Oh,
we knew It two days ago! Baldos
knew It yesterday. He met Us nt 4
o'clock this morning-tluit ts, part of
us. I was sent on with Frauz so that
I should not see bloodshed if it came
to tlie worst. We wore near tho city
gates, nnd Buldos came straight to us.
Isn't it funny that you never knew all
these things? Then at daybreak Baldos insisted on bringing me here to
await the news from tho pass. It wus
safer, nnd, besides, he said he had another object ln coming back at once."
B.verly flushed warmly. Tho three
women were crowding about the narrator, eagerly drinking ln her naive
"We cnme in through one of the big
gates aud not through the underground
passage. That was a fib," snid Candace, looking from one to the other
wltb a perfectly delicious twinkle In
her eye. The conspirators gulped and
smiled guiltily. "Baldos says there Is
a very mean old man hero who is tormenting tlie fairy princess���not the
real princess, you know. He camo
back to protect her, which wus very
brave of him, I nm sure. Where is my
brother?" she nsked, suddenly anxious.
"He Is with friends. Don't be alarmed, dear," said Yetive.
"Ho  is  changing  clothes,  too?   He
needs  clothes   worse   than   I   needed
these.  Does he sny positively thnt Gabriel has been enptured?"
"Yes.  Did you not know of it?"
"I was sure it would happen.   You
know I was not with them in tho pass."
Yetive was reflecting, n soft smile ln
her eyes.
"I was thinking of tho time when I
wore men's clothes," she said. "Unlike
yours, mine were most uncomfortuble.
It wus when I nlded Mr. Lorry in escaping from the Tower. I wore a
guard's uniform nnd rode miles with
hlm in a dark enrriage before he discovered the truth." She blushed nt the
remembrance of that trying hour.
"And I wore boy's clothes at a girl's
party once���my brother Dan's," said
Beverly. "The hostess' brothers came
home unexpectedly, and I bad to sit
behind a bookcase for an hour. I didn't

that the listeners suppressed their
"Better than any one else. He is our
idol. Oh, your highness, if what he
says ls true that old man must be a
fiend. Baldos a spy! Why, he has not
slept dny or night for fear that we
would not capture Gabriel so tha. he
might be cleared of the charge without
appealing to���to my brother. He has
always been loyal to you," the glrf-
suid wltb eager eloquence.
"I know, dear, nnd I have known ah
a'-ong. He will be honorably acquitted.
Ctiunt Marlanx was overzealous. He
has not been wholly wrong, I must sny
fa justice to him"���
"How can you uphold him, Y.tlv**.
r.fter whnt he has said about me."
cried Beverly witb blazing eyes.
"Beverly, Beverly, you know I doa't
mean that He has been a cowardly
villain so far as you nre concerned,
and he shall be punished, never fear.
I cannot condone thut one ninazing
piece of wickedness on his pnrt."
"You, then, nre the girl Baldos talks
so much about?" cried Candace eagerly. "You are Miss Calhoun, the fairy
princess? I am so glad to know you."
Tho young princess clasped Beverly's
hand nnd looked into her eyes with admiration and approval. Beverly could*,
have crushed her In her arms.
The sounds of shouting came up to
the windows from below. Outside,
men were rushing to and fro, nnd there
were signs of mighty demonstrations
at the gates.
"The people have heard of the capture," said Candace, as calmly as
though^ she were asking one to have a
cup of tea.
There was a pounding at the boudoir
���floor. It flew open unceremoniously
and In rushed Lorry, followed by
Anguish. In tho hallway beyond a
group of noblemen conversed excitedly
with the women of the castle.
"The report from the dungeons, Yetive," cried Lorry Joyously. "The
warden says tbat Gabriel is ln his cell
again!   Here's to Prince Dantan!"
Ravone was standing in the door.

Life  In the Regions of  Ice and Snow
as Described by Explorers.
During a Polar winter the average
thickness of ice on tbe ocean when
no storms or strong* -titles interfere
reaches six feet or more. Nansen
found a thickness of over eight feet.
There is really no warm season. Even
during tbe long summer days snow
still falls frequently. Clean spells are-
relatively warm, but, especially in
the Antarctic, fogs and cloud are frequent, while winds bring low temperatures. Nevertheless, the summer
near the margins of the Arctic zone
is described in the "Journal of Geography" as having clean, pure, crisp
air, free from dust and with little
The monotony and darkness of the
Polnr nicht nre decreased a good deal
by the long twilicht, due to the high
degree of refraction nt low temperatures. The buii actually appears and
disappears some days before and after the times* which nre geometrically
set for the change. Light from moon
nnd stars, and from the aurora, also
relievos the darkness. Optical phenomena of groat, variety, beuuty, and
oomplexity are common. Solar and
lunar hnloes, antl coronne. and mock
suns  and moons  are  often  seen.
Auroras seem to be less common
nnd less brilliant in the Antarctic
than in the Arctic. Suri��"t nnd sunrise colors within the Polnr zones
are described ns being extraordinarily
brilliant and impressive. Thus the
North Polar summer, in spite of it?
drawbacks, is in some respects n
pleasant arid  henlthful season.
But the Polar night is monotonous
depressing, repelling. An everlasting
ly uniform snow covering, rigidity
lifelcspness, silence ��� except for the
howl of the gale or the cracking nt
tbe ice. Small wonder thnt the Polar
night hns sometimes unbalanced
men's minds. Tbe first effects are often n strong desire for sleep, and in
difference. Later effect* have been
sleeplessness and nervousness, tending in extreme enses to insanity, anaemia,  digestive  troubles.
Extraordinary low winter temperatures are easily borne if the air is
dry nnd still. Nansen notes "not very
cold" at a temperature of���22 degrees,
when the air was still. Another Arctic explorer, nt 9 degrees, says "it is
too warm to skate." Zero weather
seems pleasantly refreshing if clear
and calm. But high relative humidity nnd wind���even a light breeze-
give tlie same degree of cold a penetrating feeling of chill which may be
unbearable. Thus the damper air ol
spring and summer usually seems
much colder than tlie drier air of winter, although the temperatures may
be the same. When exposed directly
to tlie nir the skin bums and blisters; the lips swell nnd crack. Thirst
has been much complained of by
Polar explorers, and is surely due to
the active evaporation from the warm
body into the dry, relatively cold air.
There is no doubt that Polar air is
singularly free from micro-orgnnisnif
���a fact "which is due chiefly to lack
of communication with other parts of
the world. Hence diseases which are
common in temperate zones, "colds"
among them, are rare.

anxiety for mothers because tbey are
the most dangerous months in tho
year for babies and young children.
Stomach and bowel troubles conic
quickly during tlie hot weather, and
almost before the mother realizes
that there is danger tlie little one
may be beyond aid. Baby's Own
Tablets will prevent summer complaints if given occasionally because
they keep the stomach and bowels
free from offending matter. And thn
Tablets will cure tiiese troubles if
they come suddenly. The wise mother should keep these Tablets always
at hand nnd give them occasionally
to her children. The Tablets can be
given with equal success to tlie newborn babe or the woll-grown child.

Tablet Unveiled to John  Macdonnell,
Brock's   Gallant   Aidc-de-Camp.
The unveiling of a bronze memorial
tablet to the memory of Lieut.-Col. L
John Macdonnell of Glengarry. Gen
Brock's gallant aide-de-camp, at tin
site of the old redan battery on the
fnce of Queenston Heights, was an
event which made the visit f*
the 41st Regiment, Brockville Rifles,
to Niagara Falls, Out., ever remembered. The regiment arrived on a recent Saturday morning and marched
to Queenston Park for breakfast. They
afterwards took cars on the Interna
tional Railway for Queenston Heights
Park. There, on the site of the old
battery which played such an important part in tlie famous battle, the
I.undy's I.ane Historical Society had
erected a memorial to the brave Macdonnell, but it had never been unveiled This ceremonial was conducted by Mrs. Cruikshank. wife of Lieut.
Col. ami Brigadier Cruikshank, in tlie
presence of the visiting regiment, representatives of the Luudy's Lane
Historical Society, officers of other
military camps nnd mnny spectators.
When tlie veil was drawn aside Mrs.
Fisehed, wife of the Lieut.-Col. commanding tlie 41st Regiment, marched
forward and on behalf of the Brockville Chapter, Daughters of the Empire, placed a wreath of ivy and im-
mortolls upon it The silver hand of
the 41st Regiment played the British
nnd Canadian national anthems, and
Lieut.-Col. Cruikshank on behalf of
the Luntly's Lane Historical Society
presented the tablet to the public. The
inscription on tlie memorial reads as
"Site of Redan Bnttery. Near this
spot. Lieut.-Col. John Macdonnell,
Attorney-General of Upper Canada,
was mortally wounded 12t.li of October, 1812."
Thc   wreath   which   was  laid   upon
the memorial wns subsequently removed to Macdonnell's  Brockville monument,  where it will  be preserved.
They Listened to the Story.
After these ceremonies the visiting
troops assembled in front of tlie Brock
monument and listened to a talk on
the battle of Queenston Heights by
Lieut.-Col. Cruikshank, who undoubtedly knows, more of the history of
the war on the frontier than any other living man.
In tlie afternoon the officers of the
41st visited the battlefield of Luudy's
Lane, where Lieut.-Col. Cruikshank
delivered another of his accurate and
entertaining historical military features. Iu connection with this visit
it was recalled that it was the light
company of tlie 41st Regiment of the
line, commanded by Capt. Clew,
which letl tlie final charge up the hill
of blood nnd (ire and wrested victory
from defeat on tlie night of July 25,
1814. The battlefield of Chippewa
nnd many other points of historical
interest were also visited by the
Brockville soldiers.

Ether a Festive Drink in Russia
The habit of ether drinking is extremely prevalent in some parts of
Russia, as of Kast Prussia, and all
tiie efforts of tlie authorities to
combat the evil have hitherto been j

An idea of the extent to which the
habit prevails may be gathered from
reports given in the Russian newspapers of n recent accident whicli
occurred nt a place called Trossno.
Ether is drunk by farmers on festive
occasions, when it appears to be
consumed in pnilfuls. A farmer celebrating his son's wedding in the fulness of his hospitality got in two

British Traveling Public Menaced By
Constant Dangers.
A strange incident happened in the
Severn tunnel recently. Just as an
express train entered the tunnel a
���tolilier in a third class carriage flung
open the door and attempted to jump
out. Fortunately one of the passengers succeeded in seizing the man's
coat tailc and with the aid of other
passengers held him there head downwards. They could not pull him back,
for the suction was too great. The
communication cord was pulled, the
train stopped, and the rescued man���
who, it appears, had suddenly become
insane���was  placed  under arrest.
This is not the first exciting incident which has happened in the great
boring which carries the Great Western railway beneath the bed of the
Severn. Some five years ago a Cardiff
commercial traveler went to sleep in
s train bound from Cardiff to Bristol
and, waking with a shock, found himself lying in pitch darkness beside the
permanent way in the tunnel.

How he got there he had not the

much hurt, though he had evidently
been unconscious for some time. Ho
had not the fnintest idea how fnr it
was to the entrance, nor which way
to po. Soon he became violently
thirsty. He heard water trickling
down the wall close by, but when he
collected some in his hands he wound
it was salt.
IT�� made a brave effort to find his
way out, but dizziness came on nnd
he fell unconscious. As he lay there
another train passed, and the poor
man must have had a desperately

his left boot Keel had been cut off and
his ankle sprained. Plate layers found
htm eventually and carried him to

whicli made at first straight for the
coast, but, being turned by some
villagers, took to the railway line and
ran into a long tunnel, followed by
the whole pack. The- master, Mr. Harries, realized the danger to the hounds
and at once followed them.
He was fully, a quarter of a mile
down the tunnel when n roaring sound
behind warned him that a train* had
entered the tunnel. Almost instantly
the glare of the headlight lit the dripping walls, and the horseman, clapping spurs to his horse, began to
gallop at full speed through the darkness. There followed ,t most exciting
race for life, the man riding at the
pitch of his horse's pace, the train
thundering  in  pursuit.
Byt a sort of miracle the horse kept
its feet, but the train gnined rapidly.
At last the white circle of the tunnel's
month appearetl and the driver of the
engine noticed the black silhouette
of the rider against the light and
slackened speed. Rider, hounds, and
all came safely out of the perilous
predicament in which they had
plunged themselves.

Scientific   Forecast   oi   How   End   of
World   May   Come.
A scientific forecast of how the end
of the wo;Id might come is given in
a new book, "Astronomical Studies,"
by Professor Ellard Gore.
His theory is that final cataclysm
may possibly be the result of a collision between the sun nnd some dark,
dead, derelict planet. Although astronomers hsve no actual proof that
such dead surs exist, without life or
light, and careering about in space,
they believe it quite possible, and
even suspect that what are supposed
to be new stars may actually be dark
planets that huve become visible
through coming into the zone of solar influence.
The result ot a collision between the
sun and a dark planet would be that
the former's light and hent would he
enormously increased, and the earth
instantly destroyed hy combustion.
Professor Gore tells how we should
be warned of our approaching doom.
"When, about fifteen million miles
from the sun, the dark body would
bigin to shine by reflected light. Tt
would look at first like a new and
remote planet. In about ten years it
would bave bee ime so bright as to be
visible to the naked eve; in fourteen
years it would be so bright as to attract general attention. In the fifteenth year it woufd be brighter than any
object except the moon, and its terrible approach would have created
universal alarm. Very soon after
would cni.ie the great catastrophe of
its collision, moving at 400 miles per
second, with Alie sun moving at the
same speed. In the last moments of
its apprjach there would be two
noons in the sky.
"It is possible thnt this dead body
might not be so large as the sun. If
it were only ns large as Jupiter there
would be much shorter warning. The
total time,from the date when it became visilile to the cntaclysra would
be  only  nbout  three  years."
Lady   Employs   Her  Own   Crew   and
Makes Good Living.
Miss Florence Baker, is regarded as
a protege by all the sailors of the
Great Lakes. She is twenty-one years
of age, and has laid up a comfortable
bank account by following the hazardous calling of a diver. Her first professional work was when she faised
$20,000 worth of copper from the ship
of W. H. Stevens, which sank in
eighty feet of water in Lake Erie several years ago.
Miss Baker's father, Copt. H. W.
Baker, was a captain of divers, and
from the first time she was allowed
to go down to the river alone, she
used to watcli her father's wrecking
ship leave the dock and long to go
with him. The ambition to become a
diver matured in her as she grew older, and she deplored the fate which
had condemned her to be a girl.
At last her desire to becomo a diver
overcame the objections of her friends
and she began mailing wrecking trips
with her father, and soon became his
inseparable companion. She made a
study of every part of the machinery
connected in any way with diving,
and in time learned to command the
wrecking boat with great skill and assurance.
Hor  First  Descent.
Her first descent was in Lake
Huron, where n tr*. wooden barge bad
gone down, and before the wrecking
steamer had reached tho spot where
the barge had sunk, tho owner spoke
to Miss Baker, regretting the loss of
a diamond ring which was in the cabin.
Miss Baker immediately offered to
recover it for him, as she had been
planning for some time to muke her
fust descent upon the first favorable
opportunity. When everything wns
made ready for hor to descend, her
own father manned the compressed
air apparatus, which meant life or
death to her, as sbe calmly walked
down the ship's ladder and, without
a moment's hesitation, disappeared
under the water.
In describing the sensations of the
initial trip, she suid that the feeling
at the outset was as if some great
creature with a thousand arms was
pressing her gently, but firmly on all
sides, and ns if in a few minutes her
breath would be cut off entirely, but
sho was far from frightened, and continued her descent until thc shadow
of the sunken barge loomed up before
her. She had a strange feeling of
buoyancy, and the twenty pounds of
lend attached to her feet seemed no
heavier than leather soles as she followed her companion to the walls of
the sunken ship, and with his aid
climbed over them.
Undaunted By Pain.
At this point she experienced severe
pains in her head, and felt as if hei
noso were going to bleed, but, still
undaunted, she reached the cabin rf
the barge, where she entered, and witli
the aid of the electric light at her
belt, sought out the corner of the cab
in, which contained a small stand,
upon whicli was the tiny box containing the much-desired diamond
In her haste to reach it sho stumbled and fell, and, for the moment
wns consumed by a terrible fear, fti
the pressure of the water, together
with breathing tlie compressed air,
had now become nlmost overpowering; but she quickly gained her self-
control, and, with the box in her
hand, returned to the deck of the
As a reward for this exploit Miss
Baker was presented with the diamond ring she lind recovered, and it
is now in her possession.
Tlie ring marked the beginning of
her fortune, as sbe had proved that
she could live under the w*ater, and to
be able to do this means thnt a person
is worth anywhere from $50 to $200 a
day to a wrecking company. As
ninety-nine out of every 100 men who
descend into the waters of the lakes
will in a few minutes begin to suffer
from bleeding nt the nose, head-splil-
ting pains, and suffocation, that is
why'all good divers from one end of
the Grent Lakes to the other may be
counted on one's fingers nnd toes.
Miss Baker now began following up
her adventure with practical work,
and she early discovered the fact that
she was fitted for a captain of divers,
instead of a diver alone, ns the locating of tho lost copper ship, which
had been searched for for years, has

Mark Twain was the guest of honor
at a recent banquet at the Mansion
House, at which the lo.'d mayor had
as his guests 250 members of the Savage Club and others, including Lord
Chief Justice Alverstone, Dr. Fridtjot
Nansen nnd Sir William S. Gilbert.
Mark Twain, replying to the toast
to "The Honorary Life Members tf
the Savage Club," told several stories
which highly amused the guests. Concluding, he touched a more serious
note, saying;
"And now 1 am going home in a

Drove  Prospectors Out.
It is little wonder that the Salvation Army party was driven out of
the Northern lands of Ontario. Allowing for nil the exaggerations, the stories told here by parties from the Lake
Abitibi district indicate a condition
of things there that make prospecting
almost impossible. Men have arrived here with their faces literally covered with mosquito bites. These have
swelled to such an extent ns to temporarily disfigure the victims.
"Of the 600 men at Abitibi," says
one member of a surveying party just
arrived, "only a dozen are now left.
They have simply had to quit. The
black flies and the mosquitoes give
the men no rest, nnd one plague is as
bad as the othor. It is impossible to
get restful sleep. The continuous
fighting of the pests gets on the nerves, and life becomes unendurable.
A man dare not remove his clothes.
He would instantly be covered with
the little brutes."
While tho statement of one man who
says that tho swarms of mosquitoes
can be cut with n knife is, of course,
an exaggeration, there is every reason to believe from the raw and bleeding faces of some of those who have
returned that the pest of mosquitoes
and flics in northlnnd is almost the
worst ever reported.

Olden Time Schemes For Obtaining
Wealth and Power.
The evil of monopolies nnd rings was
knowti to nucleuts, Aristotle referring
to them ln his "Politics," and then, as
now, it was found necessary to hold
them ln check by legislation. The monopolist wus ln Unman law called a
dardunarius and punished under the
Lex Julia de Annonn. Monopolies ol
clothing, fish and all articles of food
were prohibited by the Emperor Zeno
under pain of confiscation nnd exile, so
that It is certain that the rings of
the ancient days wero ns mischievous
ns they are now. At Athens a law limited the amount of corn a man might
buy. The earliest recorded instance we
have was a corn rlug.
There is an ancient tradition that the
king who mnde Joseph his prime minister and committed Into his bauds the
entire administration of Egypt was
Apepl. Apepl was ono of the shepherd
kings and ruled over the whole of
Egypt ns Joseph's pharaoh seems to
have done. Tho prime minister during
seven years of remarkable plenty
bought up every bushel of corn beyond
the absolute needs of thc Egyptians
and stored it. During the terrible famine thnt followed he was able to get
his own price and bartered corn successively for tbe Egyptian money, cattle and land and, taking one-flftb for
pharaoh, made him supremely wealthy.

Pearls   Increase  in   Price
A good deal has been said about
the high prices at a recent sale of
jewelry in auction rooms, and surprise ���'has been expressed that one
pearl necklace alone should have
sold  for  ��6,800.
A. G. Maginnis, joint managing
director of a goldsmiths and silversmiths company, said that that price
was by no means exceptional for a
necklace. "I have hud tho identical
necklace in my hand, and I certainly do not think it was dear ut
the price. But we havo in stock a
number whicli nre far more valuable.
At the Paris exposition of 1900 we
had a white pearl necklace on show,
tlie price of whicli was ��00,000. Such
prices as ��25,000, ��30,000 and ��40,-
000 nro  not at  all  uncommon.
"The reason that pearls bring in
such enormous prices is that fine
specimens are scarce. First, they
must match. Not one in a thousand
is perfectly round. Then necklaces
are usually made so that the pearls
nre lnrge in front and taper off gradually at the back. This adds to
tlie difficulty of matching them. To
make up a really well matched necklace may take years.
"Undoubtedly the price has gone
up during the last ten years, and it
is still going up. This is due partly
to an increased demand. Then the
company which took over the Ceylon
fisheries about a year ago is closing
them down for twelve months to enable the oysters to recuperate.
Therefore, during the next year or
so very few new pearls will como
into  the  market."���London  Tribuns.
