stock-raising. Speaking of the more
recent gold excitement on Findlay River, Mr. Saunders did not gi far enough

There moms to !m very general satisfaction at the idea of the Fall Fruit
Fair, mil many are enquiring ns to when
it will be and   what is to be  exhibited.
Aa nothing definite has biendecidid
on T cm only answer these question*! in
a very gem nil manner; but lho date
will be directly preceding thu Kelson
Fair, the object being to select a diitriot exhibit for the Nelaon Fair, from
the fruit, etc., shown at onr exhibition.
We can advertise this part of the country well by .sending in a first-rate district exhibit to Nelson; whereas if we
exhibit  ns   individuals    our   successes
pass unnoticed.
There seems to be a moat extraordinary show of fruit luls this year, and
unless a disastrous frost occurs, ue
should have a really good fruit crop.
There are fruit spurs even on my young
Northern Spies, four-year-olds. Northern Spies are generally considered
very lato hearers nnd it will be very ln-
teres'ing to watch if tiiese buds develop into fruit.
La*t 3n���inner was a very good ono,
and all fruit trees that wero given a
fair chance made* a splendid growth,
and are in a particularly vigorous and
thrifty conditio:-. Last year apples
wero rather scarce, nnd this also will
help to account for lho genoious manner in which the trees nro budding out.
Win n wo realize how much cheaper
and easier it is to enrich our lands by
growing clover and ploughing it. in for
manure, than either to use farmyard
manure, or buy artificial manures, wo
shall be far on our way towards making
a success of fruit growing in this country.
For (2.50 you can buy enough rod
clover seed to sow an acre, and you can
sow and harrow it in with Utile trouble.
Even after a crop of hay has beei'vtaken
off, the roots of the clover alone nre
estimated to be equal loin tons of farm*
vnrd manure per aero. True, it, has to
ho plowed in, hut so also would the
farrayard'tnanure. It is more evenly
distributed than farmyard manure
usually ic, and it has an even better
mechanical effect on tho soil.

Rev. H; S. Magoe lied and lied deliberately when he told the Globo reporter
that the extremes of atheism and anarchism wero rampant in tho Kootenays.
Whnt he learned about the brothels and
whisky shops in the Kootenays we can
only infer from hia familiar reference
thereto, hut we do know that Mr. Magee
if he spoke the truth, would admit that
there is more drunkenness and vice
prevalent In any Ontario town of the
size of Nelson, Cranbrook, Rossland, or
Kaslo, thnn in any of those towns at
any time of the year. Mr. Magee spent
a Sunday in Nelson and ii he wero not

of the wayward Guy, who had resisted
all her efforts to persuade him to return with her, instead of staying
where he was not needed, and where
his presence was a restraint to all
save one, and that one. Maddy, for
whose sake he stayed.
"She'd be vummed," the indignant old lady sftid, "if she would not
write to Lucy herself if Guy did not
quit such doin's," and thus resolving she kept on her way, while the
subject of her wrath was, it may be,
more than half repenting of his decision to stay, inasmuch as he began
to have an unpleasant consciousness
of himself being in everybody's way.
In the first hour of Maddy's bereavement he had not spoken with
her, but had kept himself aloof from
the room where, with her grandfather
and Uncle Joseph, she sat, holding
the poor aching head of the latter in
her lap and trying to speak a word
of consolation to the old, brokenhearted man, whose hand was grasped in hers. But Maddy knew he was
there. She could hear his voice each
time he spoke to Mrs. Noah, and that
made the desolation easier to bear.
She did not look forward to the time
when he would be gone; and wheD
at last he told her he was going, she
started quickly, and with a gush ol
tears, exclaimed: "No, no! oh, no!''
"Mnr*dy," Guy whispered, bending
over the strange trio, "would you rather I should stay? Will it be pleaS-
ap'^.. for y0Ui jf j do?"
"Yes���I don't know. I guess it
would not be so lonely. Oh, it's ter-
rib'e to have grandmother dead I" was
Maddv's response; alter which Guy
would have stayer! if a whole regiment
of Mrs. Noahs had confronted him
instead of one.
Maddy wished it; that was reason
enough for him: and giving a few di-
rortinn-* to John, he stayed, thereby
disconcerting the neighboring women
w-hr* cnme in to perform the last offices for the dend. nnd who wished the
young man from Aikenside was any-
wb"- Ivit there, watchine them in
all *i*oir movements, as they vainly
fancied he did. Rut Guy thought only
of Maddv, watching her so carefully
that mors then one meaning glance
was exchanged between the women,
wbn rtv��Ti over the innnimate form
of the dend. spoke together of what
"TiifrM nopsihlv occur, wondering what

who sepmed now so wholly unfitted
for the burden.
To Maddy there cnme no definite
idea pf the future during the two

the d*.rl.pnpr. cnttnue; but when, nt
In-' the deep grave made for Grand-
m* Mnr'thnm was occupied, and the
lourm**. in the little front room was
emntv���when the Aikenside carriage,
���whi""* had been sent dnwn for the use
of the mourners, had bpen driven
awav. tatting both Guy nnd Mrs. Noah
���when thp npirrhbors. too, had gone,
leavine* onlv herself and the little
hired rriri p;tf,*-n^ by the evening fire,
with the grandfather and the imbecile
Uncle Joseph���then it was that she
first began to feel the pressure of the
burden���began to ask herself if she
co'ild live thus always, or at least
for many years���as long as either of
the two helpless men was spared.
Maddy was young, and the world as
she had seen it was very bright and
fair, brighter fa*>-than a life of laborious toil, and for n whilp thp idea that
the latter alternative must be accepted made her diz.yy and  faint.
As if divining her thoughts, poor
old grandpa, in his prayers that night,
asked in trembling tones, which showed how much he felt whnt he was
saying, thnt God would guide his darling in all she did, and give her wisdom to make the proper decision;
���hat if it were best she might be
happy there with tbem, but if not.
"Oh, Father, Father!" he sobbed,
"help me ond J soph to bear it." He
could pray no more aloud, and the
prnv bend remained bowed down upon his chair, while Uncle Joseph, in
his peculiar way. took up tbe theme,
bogging like a very child thnt Maddy
might be inclined to stay���that no
yoiin<? men with curling hair, a din-
nint-i.-' cross, the smell of musk, might
be permitted to come near her with
enticing looks, but that she might
stay as she was and be nn old maid
forever! This was the subject of
Uncle Joseph's prayer, a prayer
which set the little hired girl to tittering, and would hnve wrung a smile
from Maddy herself had she not felt
all the strange petition implied.
With waywardness natural to people
in his condition, Uncle Joseph that
night turned to Maddy Ior the little
servic.B his sister had formerly rendered and which, since her illness,
Grandpa Markham had done, and
would willingly do still. But Joseph
refused to let him. Maddy must untie
his cravat, unbutton his vest, and
tak*- off his shoes, while, after he was
in bed, Maddy must sit by his side,
holding bis hnnd until he tell away
to sleep. And Muddy did it cheerfully,
soothing him into quiet, and keeping
bn"'- her own choking sorrow for the
Bake of comforting him. Then, when
this task was done she sought her
grnndfnli*"** still sitting before the
kitchen fire and evidently waiting for
her. The little hired girl had retired,
and thus tbere was no barrier to free
conversation between them.
"Maddy," the old man said, "come
���it close by me. where I can look into
your face, while we talk over what
must be done."
With a half-shudder, Maddy drew
a stool to h-- irrandfather'8 feet, and
resting her hend upon his knee, listened while he talked to her of the
future; told her all her grandmother
had done; told of his own helplessness,*. j_. t_T_��..rjal .it .was..to. *:- ior

tones asked who was going to look
after thern now. "We can't live here
alone, Maddy. We can't. We're old
and weak, and want someone to lean
on. Oh, why didn't God take us with
her, Joseph and me, and that would
leave you free to go back to school
and the life which I know is pleasanter than to stay here with us. Oh,
M'-'-lv! it comforts me to look at
you���to hear your voice, to know that
though I don't see you every minute,
you are somewhere, and by and by
you'll come in. I shan't live long, and
mn'-'r* Joseph won't. God's promise is
to them who honor father and mother. Tt '11 be,hard for you to stay,
harder than it was once; but, Maddy,
oh, Maddy! Mny with me, stay with
me!���Btay  with  your old  grandpa!"
In his earnestness he grasped her
arm, as if he thus would hold her,
while the tears rained over his
wrinkled fnce. For a moment Maddy
m--1 no response. She had no intention of leaving him, but the burden was pressing heavily and her
tongue refused to move. Maddy was
then a stranger to the religion which
was sustaining her grandfather in his
erp"' trouble, but the teachings of her
childhood had^not been in vain. She
was God's covenant child. His protecting presence was over and around
her. moving her to the right. New
York, with its gay sights, her school,
where in another year she was to graduate, the trip to the Catskills which
Guy had promised Mrs. Agnes, Jessie,
and "*"**oplf, Aikenside with its luxurious ease���all these must be given
im while worse than all the rest,
Guy, too, must be given up. He would
not come there often; the place was
not to his taste, and in time he would
cease to care for her as he cared for
her now. '.'Oh, that would be dreadful !" she groaned aloud, while her
'lioiifhts went backward to the night
riCi in the snowstorm and the nuin-
berles- "'���-ntions he had paid her
then. She would never ride w*ith him
again���never; and Maddy moaned
bitterly, as she began to realize for
the first time how much she liked Guy
Remington, and how the giving him
up and his society was the hardest
part of all, But Maddy had a brave
young heart, and at last, winding her
arms nround her grandfather's neck,
she whispered: "I will not leave you,
grandna. I'll stay in grandmother's
Surely Heaven would answer the
blessings whispered over Maddy by
the delighted old man, and the young
girl taking so cheerfully the burden
fron- which many would have shrunk,
sh^-'i be blessed of God.
With her grandfather's hand upon

that the blessing was descending; but
when, in her own little room, the one

give way. and the burden, magnified

"Oh. is there no way of escape,
no help?" she moaned, as she tossed
from side to side. "Must my life be
wasted here.  Surely "
Maddy did nnt finish the sentence,
for something checked the words ol
repining, and she seemed to hear
again her grandfather's voice as it
repeated the promise to those who
keep with their whole souls the Fifth
"I will, I will," she cried, while into hor heart there crept an intense
longing for the love of Him who
alone could make her task a light
one. "If I were good like grandma, I
could bear everything," she thought,
and turning upon her pillow, Maddy
prayed an earnest, childlike prayer,
that God would help her do right,
that He would take from her the
proud spirit whicli rebelled against
her lot bpcnuse of its loneliness, that
pride and love of her own ease and
advancement in preference to others'
good might all be subdued; in short,
that she m'���*���*' be God's child, walking where He appointed her to walk
without a murmur, and doing cheerfully His will.
Aikenside, and school, nnd the Cat-
skill Mountains were ef#ier to abandon after thnt contrite prayer; but
when she thought of Guy, the fiercest,
stint-post, pane she hnd ever felt shol
through her henrt, making her cry
out so quickly thnt the little hired
"iri who shared her h**d moved as if
about to waken, but Maddy lay very
quiet until all was Rtill again, when
turning a second time to God she
tried to pray, tried to give up what to
her wns the dearest idol, but she could
np' snv the words, nnd ere she knew
what she wns doing she found hersell
asking that Guy should not forsake
iinr "Let him come." she sobbed,
"let Guy come sometime to see me."
Once the Tempter whispered to her
that had she accepted Dr. Holbrook
she would have been spared all this,
but Maddy turned a deaf ear to that
suggestion Dr. Holbrook was too noble a man to have an unloving wife,
and not for a moment did she repent
of her decision with regard to him.
She almost knew he would say now
that she was right in refusing *tim,
and right in staying there, as she
must. Thoughts of the doctor quieted
her, she believed, not knowing that
Heaven was alrendy owning its sub*
missivp child, and breathing upon it
a soothing benediction. The moan of
the winter wind and the sound of
the snow benting against her little
window censed to annoy her. Heaven,

>*iitm"*i h'pnded into one grent good
just within her reach, and when the
long clock below the stairs struck
three, she did not hear it, but with
the tear-stains upon her face, she lay
nestled nmnr>�� her pillows, dreaminp
that her grandmother had come back
from the bright world of glory to bless
her darling child.
It was broad noon ere Maddy
awokp and starting up she looked
about her in bewilderment, wondering
where Bhe was and what agency had
been at work in her room, transforming it from the cold, comfortless
apartment she had entered the previous-night into the cheery-looking
chnmber, with a warm fire blazing in
the tiny fireplace, a rug spread down

the little hired girl as completely
obliterated as if she had never been.
In her grief Maddy seemed to have
fo-"ptten how to make things eozy,
and as. during her grandmother's illness, tier own room had been left to
the care of the hired girl, Nettie, it
wnre a neglected, mde aspect, which
had grated on Maddy's finer feelings,
and_,made everything so uninviting.
But this morning all wns changed.
Son-i" skillful hand had been busy
there while she slept, and Maddy was
wondering who it could be, when the
door opened cautiously and Flora's
pond-humored face looked in���Flora
from Aikenside. Maddy knew now to
whom she was indebted for all this
comfort, and with a cry of joy she
welcomed the girl, whose very pres-
*t��**o h'ought back something of the
life with which she had parted forever.
"Flora," rVip exclaimed, "how came
you here? Did you make the fire and
fix the room for me?"
"Yes, I made the fire," Flora replied, "and fixed up the things a little, bustlin' that young one's goods
out of here; because it was not fittin'
for you to be sleepin' with her: Mr.
Guy was mad enough when he found
it out."
"Mr. Guy, Flora? How should he
know of our sleeping arrangements?"
Maddy asked, but Flora evaded a direct reply, saying, "tbere wns enough
ways for things to get to Aikenside";
then continuing, "How tired you must
be, Miss Maddy, to Bleep bo sound as
never to hear me at all. though to be
sure I tried to be still as a mouse.
But let mc help you dress. It's all but
noon, and you miiRt be hungry. Your
breakfast's all rendy."
"Thnnk vou. Flora, I enn dress myself," Mnddy snid, stepping out upon
the floor, and feeling thnt the world
wns not n�� dnrk'ns it had seemed to
her when Inst night she came up to
her phnmher.
���Sod was comforting her already,
nnd as she made her simple toilet, she
tried to thank Him for Hia goodness,
and ask for grace to make her what
slip ought to be.
"Yon have not yet, told me why you
enmp here." she Baid to Flora, who
w��o busv making her bed, and who replied: "Tt'a Mr. Guy's work. He
thought I'd better come, as you would
need help to get things set to rights,
so vou could go bnck to school."
Maddy felt her heart coming up in
her throat, but she answered calmly,
"Mr Guy is very kind���ao are yon
all; hut, Flora, I am not going back
to school."
"Not going bnck !" and Flora stopped ber bedmaking, while ahe stared
blankly nt Maddy. "What be you going to do?"
"Stay here and take care of grand,
pa," Maddy snid, bathing her face
and nock in the cold water, which
could not cool the feverish heat she
felt spreading nil  over them.
"Stay here! You are crazy, Miss
Mnddv! Tnin't no plnce for a girl like
you, and Mr. Guy never will suffer
it, T know," Flora rejoined, as ahe
resumed her work, thinking she
"should die to be moped up in that
nnt-hpl] of n house."
With a little sigh, as she foresaw
the opposition ahe should probably
nipp. with from Guy, Maddy went on
with her toilet, which was soon completed, aa it did not take long to error"- the dark calico dress and plain
li-**-** collar which she wore. She was
not na fresh-looking aa uaual that
morning, for excitement and fatigue
had lent a paleness to her cheek and

Sevres Uses Two Shades, the Familiar
Grass and Apple Tints.
It ls the day of the specialist, even
ln china collecting. The field was
found too vast to be covered by oue
collector, who realised that though art
might be long, her purse was not, and,
moreover, time was fleeting. So hero
and there arose the being who decided
to make one particular branch her own
and to cleave to that only. Blue aud
white naturally found most votaries to
begin with till the more enterprising
branched off into other color schemes,
of whicli green and white was the
most attractive. But green Is a color
which has always fallen under the ban
of being considered unlucky by the superstitious, and superstition ls a hard
nut to crack. ' Still, fashion surmounts
all obstacles, and gradually we see the
votaries of greeu china ln the ascendent. Incidentally the same thing is
happening to prices. Green china of
the right tint does not now bave to
wait long upon the order of Its going.
The supply ls not equal to the demand.
It Is a fascinating pursuit and a most
decorative object when found, for,
though It looks Its best massed together ln bold groups, It mingles well
with other chlua, which cannot be said
for the old favorite, blue and white.
But It Is exigent in Its background
and surroundings. It calls loudly for
white walls and chintz furniture and
a somewhat countrified aspect generally, for most of the china In whicli
green predominates Is decorated with
old fashioned posies of country flowers
���roses and gillltlowers, stocks and
Tea services with wide shallow cups,
dessert services, quaint Jugs, vases and
delightful baskets form the usual treasure trove. Bowls are few and far between; specimen pieces are far to
seek. Green was a good wearing, useful, everyday color, nature's own livery, and so the potters employed It
for their most ordinary, commonplace
articles, but not always. Sevres and
Chelsea employed green as the body
color on some of tbelr most gorgeous
vases and pieces, destined often ns
offerings to klugs, princes and the
great ones of the earth.
Sevres used two shades of green, the
familiar grass green and the apple tint,
but Sevres, unless a family treasure,
hardly comes within tbe ken of the ordinary collector, for if genuine Its price
Is above rubles. Chelsea green approaches most nearly to Sevres; It Is
of a rich grass hue and was used as a
ground color ou vases and plates ln tbe
declining days of the old factory.
Worcester wus famous for its apple
green In Its palmy days, and after the
Introduction of chrome green used it a
good deal as a background to medallions of finely painted landscapes on
plates and tea service.
A Neat Finish For Dainty Linen Handkerchiefs.
There ls a most delightful and very
little known stitch by which lace ls applied to a fine fabric, such as a handkerchief.
It is known as incrustation and may
he used tor both insertions and edges.
It Is made as follows: Lay the lace
over the fabric on the edge to the depth
of half an Inch or so. Baste it straight
to a thread a little distance from the
edge of the lace and take a stitch backward in the fabric.
Draw the thread tight and put the
needle in tbe fabric In the same hole
ln which It was first inserted and bring
It out through the fabric and the extreme edge of the lace.
Draw tli�� thread through the entire
length. Take a buck stitch through the
lace edge and the fabric and bring It
out In the hole which was pierced by
the previous stitch. Kepeat this until
the lace ls fastened to the fabric.
On the back It will appear like a herringbone stitch. Drawing the thread
tight In this way and making practically a stitch and a half each time, tbe
lace Is finished with a pretty open
edge which looks like hemstitching.
Now cut away the linen from uuder
tbe lace to within an eighth of au Inch
from the edge. This raw edge does not
make the work weak, and it launders
Frenchwomen are not in the least bit
afraid of a raw edge on the wrong
side, and very often they avoid iu thia

a story about tbe Duke of Wellington
It was about tbe year 1844, aud tbe
chancellor In bis gorgeous robes was
reading the honor list aloud. The list
was, of course, ln Latin, and Wellington knew more about the handling of
brigades than about Latin quantities
Whenever tbe name Carolus occurrred
the duke persisted in pronouncing the
"o" long-"Caro-lus."
It was at last too much for one of
tbe dons standing behind him, so, leaning over, he whispered, "If your grace
will excuse me, I should like to point
out that at Oxford we call that word
"Very good," said the duke. "Thank
you. I'll remember." Presently came
the name Jacobus, which, mindful of
bis lesson, be pronounced "Jac-obus."
Agaiu the don leaned over. "I humbly beg your grace's pardon, but that
name Is 'Jaco-bus.'"
"Hang It all," muttered Wellington,
"you can't chop and cbauge like tbut!

Jac-obus, whichever you like. But
stick to your own roles. If you please."

Englishman's  Curious   Wager���Must
Go Masked and Push Perambulator.
In the face of a northeast wind a
man started recently from Trafalgar
Square, London, on a tour around the
world. The adventurer undertook the
task for a wager of i 10,000, the details
oi which he gave in tlie course of an
"This wager," he said, "was laid
by a friend of mine, a well-known
American millionare, as the outcome
oi an argument that took place at a
club in Pall Mall. He declared that
no Englishman could walk around the
world and push a perambulator. After hearing the conditions I at once
made up my mind to accept the wager
myself. Upon telling him of-the decision I had come to he at once made
arrangement with another well-known
American gentleman to accompany
me.    He is only doing it for sport."
When asked how he was going to
subsist he replied i
"I am starting penniless and I shall
sell photographs and pamphlets while
on the journey. I am allowed to ex-
pend anv sum not exceeding $5 foi j
photographs and pamphlets ior sale

walker. " In order to win the wager
he has to touch every county in F,npj
land, to visit Scotland, Ireland and
Wales und to nail at twenty countries. He is to buy a postage stamp at
every town passed through on his
journey. Among the other conditions
of this most remarkable wager are
that he is to find a wife on the road,
t*, forward an account of the luileB
walked and the towns visited and to
obtain a signed document from the
mayor or some other responsible person in each town He is to be allowed to "go as you please."

out for Bristol, where he was going

he missed his wife, though lie was
unable te remember how this hap
Finding himself in a strange place,
without any knowledge of his name or
address, he applied for assistance to
the postoffice officials.
The one clue he had was that before
leaving Wigan he recollected sending
a telegram to relatives in Bristol, advising them that he was coming by n
certain train. He knew the time he
handed it in, and was able to give
the name in which it was sent, but
there his mSmory ceased.
The post officials made enquiries,
and were at length able to find the
address to which the man wished to
go. They sent him there in charge ol
a messenger.
He_ had been wandering about in
Bristol streets for four or five hours
before it struck him that the post-
office people might help him. When
given a clue to the address he jumped
readily at it, and said it came back
to his memory like a flash.
After expressing his thanks to the
officials he left, with the remark,
"This will be a lesson to me."

Chinese   in   Cardiff.
Among sea-faring men in Cardiff the
steady increase in the number ot
Chinamen who obtain berths on vessels at that port is causing alarm.
It is stated that the Chinamen accept
half the wages of European seamen,
and are less particular as regards
food, requiring only a few cheap
though wholesome articles of diet.
The Chinaman does not ask for peas
and haricot beans, flour, oatmeal,
milk, syrup, suet, pickles, and dried
fruits. He lives for a month on the
same quantity of salt beef, salt pork,
and preserved meat as the white man
requires for a week. Even of coffee
and tea he wants less in a month than
his white competitor in a week.
"Four years ago, ' said the Cardiff
secretary of the Sailors' and Firemen's Union, there was not a Chinese
boarding-house in Cardiff. Now there
are seven. Four years ago you could
not go along Bute r��ad without seeing
the Greek and Spanish flags. The
Spaniards drove the Greeks away to a
great extent. Then the Italians came
in. Now the Italians are disappearing gradually, and also the Arabs and
Turks, and the Chinese are taking
their places.
"There are between 200 and 300
Chinamen always on shore, and avail-
.ble for engagement. If the rate oi
increase of the past year or so ls
'iept up we shall have a new Chinese
boarding-house established every
nonth or two."

W.   T.   Stead   Would    Have   Britain
Double  Germany's   Efforts.
Mr. Stead, who was one of the
first to arouse national interest in the
navy, has in the new issue of the
"Review of Reviews" an outspoken
pronouncement on the question of
maintaining the British navy and laying down two ships to one in answer
to the German program. Mr. Stead,
it will be recalled, wrote in 1884 "The
Truth About the Navy," which he
claims was mainly responsible for the
rebuilding of the first line of defence.
"There is no question" says Mr.
Stead, "as to what John Bull will reply to the German program, be it
litttle or big. He will say that he is
sorry, but if it must be so he cannot
help himself. Without any unfriendly
feeling he accepts in all courtesy the
challenge which is offered him. He
wishes for nothing more than the
maintenance of the status quo.
"He has no army to speak of; his
only deience is his navy. The maintenance of its unquestioned supremacy
is for him a matter of life and death.
His readiness to secure that supremacy is the condition of the existence
of tlie British Empire. He does not
waste his breath in idle moan or profane objurgation when any of his
neighbors challenge him to see whether or not he is prepared to hold his
own and maintain his position. The
challenge is none of our seeking, we
simply take our stand on the status
quo. We are willing to maintain the
status quo, either by reducing armaments or by arresting the increase of
armaments. But if it can be maintained in no other way, we are ready
and resolved to maintain it by competition.
"We shall bring forward no imposing counter program. But when
the Kaiser lays down one keel we lay
down two. That is the formula of
safety. We shall no more discuss it
than a swimmer discusses the necessity of keeping his head above .vater.
We shall simply do it because we
have no alternative except that of
suicide. .
"We shall not be any worse friends
with Germany because she wishes to
alter the status quo to our detriment.
It is a fair challenge and we shall accept it in the same spirit in which we
accepted the challenge for the blue
riband of tho Atlantic. Only instead
ol allowing the naval Deutschland to
take the prize and hold it for years
while the Luisitania and Mauretania
were buildiing, we cannot afford to
allow our naval supremacy to be imperilled. No, not even for a single
day. 'Britons, bold your own.' And
so say all of us."
The cost of what we may call  Mr.
Stead's     naval     program     for    1908
would be:
8  battleships,  etc.,  at  ��2,-
000,000  apiece       ��16,000,000
4    protected    cruisers    at
��300,000   1,200,000
4 destroyers at ��80,000...        1,920.000
This would involve naval estimates
of  ��40,000,000.

The   Political   Woman.
The English suffragettes have done
good service by showing us plainly
what the political woman would be.
They are, of course, picked specimens,
but i*. would be the picked specimens
that would mount the political platr
form. Nature has apparently ordained, and for plainly good purposes,
that the family should be a unit before the state, represented by the
man, on whom falls the duty of protection; a duty from which no suffragette apparently proposes to absolve
him. Not all women are married, but
marriage is the normal state, and as
yet we have apparently no proof that
unmarried women have been special
sufferers by the lack of the franchise.
It can hardly be denied that legislation generally has long been, and still
is, favorable to women. Nor will it
be denied that the sex has its privileges. Both privilege and equality it
cannot have as when it came to be
represented    by    suffragettes    would
Slainly appear. In England the par-
amentary champion chosen by the
Women demands for his cliento not
'only the suffrage, but seats in both
Houses of Parliament. Both the political parties in England have used
womanhood as they would use anything, if possible more sacred, for the
purposes of their fray. In the United States the movement which at one
time appeared to be carrying all before it, bas of late appeared to flag.

Leap Year Proposals.
What woman has ever availed herself of the privilege of proposing in
leap year? Nevertheless, it is interesting to discover whence the idea
arose. "Her maist blessit majeBtie
Margaret" decreed in the year 1288
that during her reign every maid of
Scotland, whether of high or low decree, should speak to the man she
loved. If he were not betrothed already he must marry the maid or
pay ��100. Queen Margaret died, and
[he womr-n were then clamorous for
this strange privilege to continue. To
!ppease them an act of Parliament
vas passed allowing the maidens to

A common result of an injury sometimes of even a tiny scratch is chronic
ulceration, the skin disease that ea-'s
deepest into the tissue and is most
panful, weakening and obstinate.
Ulcerations are brought on often (especially in the case of women) by excessive standing or kneeling. Mrs.
J. E. Berryman of 91 Catharine St.
N., Hamilton, Ont.. says: "I was
suffering for a number of weeks with
a badly inflamed and ulcerated leg
and ankle. I had used one remedy
after another with no material benefit. My leg was swollen in some places
to bursting and day and night I suffered severe pains. At this stage my
husband prevailed upon me to leave
oft' all other preparations and use
Zam-Buk. This I did and was agree-
ab'y surprised, for after a few applications the swelling in the leg was
greatly reduced and the ulcer looked
henUhier. I persevered with Zam-
Buk until the swelling was banished
and the pain and inflammation entirely removed. Zam-Buk has effected a cure when other remedies
failed." ,     .
Zam-Buk also heals cuts, bruises,
burns, running sores, eczema, boils,
eruptions, scalp sores, itch, piles,
chapped hands, and all diseases of the
skin . Of all druggists and stores, 60c.

Where Waa It���In Mashonaland, South
Arabia or India?
One of the most Interesting and Important questions concernlug Biblical
Bites perpetually Invites research and
persistently evades solution. "Where
Is the land of Ophlr?" Dr. Karl Peters at a public/meeting In Berlin declared emphatically that this famous
| Biblical region is located between the
Zambezi and Limpopo rivers. He tokl
his German audience how he has discovered mnny shafts of ancient gold
mines. 500 temples, fortlflcatlons and
other ruins of Phoenician origin. Dr
Peters affirms that coins unearthed iu
Mashonaland belong undoubtedly to
the time tif King Solomon. His opinion ls that no other part of Africa
could have exported the Ivory, silver
and precious stones which are recorded lu the Bible as coming from Ophlr.
Against this theory, founded ns it
undoubtedly Is on very plausible evidence, Bible students are still likely
to maintain, on the testimony of Genesis x, 29, that Ophlr was a section of
South Arabia. Here down to the time
of Ezeklel the Phoenicians still landed to procure gold and gems with
which those famous sailors and merchants of the ancient world traded In
many countries distant from tlieir Syrian shores.
Many erudite writers have attempted to Identify Sofala, on the enst coast
of Africa, with Ophlr, while yet others have located It in India. One of
the most learned essays written on the
subject ls from the pen of Professor
Iloiniuel, who argued that the ancient
land of gold was Arabia Felix.

Governor's  Narrow Escape.
The narrow escape of tlie Lieutec*
ant-Governor of Bengal is reported
in a Reuter telegram from Calcutta,
which describes an attempt made t(.
wreck the special train in which His
Excellency Sir Andrew Fraser, Lady
Fraser, with his staff and a number
of police, were traveling. Having
regard to the nature ol the explosives,
used, railway officials are astonishec'
that a terrible catastrophe did not
occur. The train was running through
to Kharagpur, and when between
Marayanger and Benapur the driver
felt the engine lilt and bump. Simultaneously he heard a loud explosion
Luckily the train did not leave the
rails, and the vacuum pipes parted
automatically, putting on the brakes.
Tho explosion tore a big hole in the
ground, while some sleepers were
blown to fragments. The "Statesman," dismissing the theory that the
outrage was the work of disaffected
Bengalis in the Madnapur district,
says: "Pieces of shattered sleepers
were found at a distance of from 150
to 200 yards away from where the explosion occurred, and we are told that
some of them have been sold at as
much as 100 rupees each as mementoes of the first attempt that has been
made on the lifo of a high state
official since the assassination of Mr.
Justice Norman and Lord Mayo."
A police officer and 50 men have gone
to the scene of the outrage. Under
a tree close to the spot sweetmeats
and other traces of an encampment
have been found. Various theories
are put forward to account for the
outrage,  one  being  that  it  waa  the
work of a discontented ganger.

It Haa Been Known Since the Earliest
Days of Civilization.
A few winters ago I, passed a day
among the wonderfully decorated
tombs In the cemetery of whnt was
once Memphis, upon the westeru bank
of the Nile, writes Julius Chambers
ln the Brooklyn Eagle. One of the
show places ls the remarkable underground palace that the Illustrious
Queen Tl of the fifth dynasty (I. e.,
about 4,500 years ago) constructed for
her final resting place. It consists of
a great court 40 by CO feet, as I remember, and several other apartments,
besides the mummy chamber, which Is
reached by a stairway lending down
from the largest room. Upon the
walls of this toinu are thc best preserved pictures to be fouud in all
Egypt, and among them are the fig
ures of two artisans working upon
coverings for the feet.
Therefore, mnkers of shoes, I salute you! More than 4.000 years before the art of prlntlug had practical
existence, although you will admit
that tbe decorator of Queen Tl's tomb
was almost a publisher, your art was

London's First Balloon and the Great
Excitement   It   Raised.
Tremendous excitement was caused
when London's lirst bnlloou went up.
The balloon, manned by a young Italian named Vincent Lunnrdl, ascended
from Moorfields, then tin open space of
ground, on Sept, 15, 1784, in the presence of more than 100,000 spectators.
All business was suspended, the king
himself setting the example by adjourning a cabinet council that happened* to be sitting. Vast crowds followed the balloon's course, some on
horseback, in carts, in chaises, but
mostly on foot. The Great North road,
above which the aeronaut sailed for
some distance, wns n roaring river of
Many were hurt in the crush, but
tlie only fatality recorded wns the
death from fright of nn old country
woman, who, coming out of her cottage to see what the excitement wns
about, beheld the balloon just above
her head. On the other hand, Lunardl
undoubtedly snvotl one mnn's life, a
jury bringing In a verdict of not guilty
on a notorious highwayman in order
that they, the prisoner and the judge
who was trying the case might rush
out of court to see the balloon.
The aeronaut descended eventually
near Ware, Iu Hertfordshire, where his
sudden drop from the clouds was the
cause of more astonishment and excitement. Many of the spectators
swooned with fear, while others urged
the putting of Lunardl to death there
and then on the ground that he must
needs be a sorcerer and in league with
the evil one.
