Present indications point to Sandon
becoming the prosperous mining camp
it was known as in early days. Several
of the mines are shipping steadily, and
reports from the Reco mine state that
the ore showing is immense. Close on
sixty men are now employed there, every one of whom is taking out ore, and
this force may have to bo reduced for
lack of spare to put the accumulation.
Every ore honse is tilled up to the roof,
while ore is being stored in chutes add
old tunnels and drifts. The new body
was found in No. 3 tunnel by a cross
cut driven from an old drift.
There are not enough pack horses
available at present to pack the ore
down, and E. Towgood, the Sandon
packer, has been hunting up the Lardo
district for another string of mules.
In a rifle match between Slocan City
and New Denver, which was brought off
on Friday last at Slocan, the visitors
were defeated bv 109 points. The highest individual scores were made by W.
Hicks, Slocan, 77; H. Woolley, New
Denver, 73.
As tbere was a strong wind blowing
across the range all the time, the result
may be taken as a demonstration of the
superiority of the Ross rifle, which was
used by the Slocan teaip, over the Lee
Enfield under such conditions, being as
they are fitted with a wind gauge.
The New Denver team, while giving
full credit to the winners for their performance, are disappointed with the result and would like to meet them again
under more equal conditions as they
consider those which prevailed on Saturday were totally unsuited to accurate
markmanship with rifles not equipped
with wind gauges. A match say with
each side to use the same class of rifle
would be very interesting.

9 30 p.m. it was noticed that a shack,
belonging to II. Macdonald, was in

ground that the flames were subdued.

Local Newspapers and Their Support.
As it cannot be too well understood
that tie success of a local newspaper is
dependent upon the support of the advertising and reading public of the district, and furthermore is justly entitled to receive that support, the following article by "Bruce" iu the Saturday
Sunset will not be amiss, and we commend it to our readers for their pernsal:
"One of the compensations in my
work is the weekly pleasure I derive in
reading tbe local papers published in
this province. The rural press of British Columbia will take rank with that
of any other province in Canada, though
I fear it is not always appreciated as it
should be in its own localirv. Almost
without exception, the weekly papers
of British Columbia are clean, bright,
and interesting. They boost their district, stand for what is good and wholesome in private life, and most of them
are ably edited.
"It is an axiom in the newspaper
business that a community generally
appreciates its newspaper only alter it
has ceased publication. Few tewns realize what a force for progress a newspaper is. This is aliundantly|evident in
the meagre support accorded many of
the. local papers in British Columbia.
A newspaper is a public institution, and
in modem life a necessity. Yet, many
of the supportees of a paper feel tbat
when they pay for an advertisement iu
its columns, or the yearly subscription,
ihat they are making a charity contribution to tbe editor. As a rule both
the advertiser and subscriber get a good
deal more than they pay for. The editor is constantly being called upon for
favors for which it never occurs to the
recipent he should pay. Few communities ever think they should contribute
as a whole, to the support of a local
paper, though it may week after week
devote columns to the spread of information about its distiict���information
that goes broadcast to the world, and
which is of inestimable valne to the
town. But if a grant of a few hundred
dollars were made to a paper for this
service there would likely be an immediate outcry against graft.
"People who complain about .the
smallness or inefiiiency of the local paper should ascertain to what extent it
is supported. Every editor worth his
suit wants to produce a big paper and a
good one, but no publisher can give
more thnn be gets. If his support is
weak, his paper cannot be a big one.
Oue can tell at a glance the sort of support a newspaper gets in its home town,
and the impression created is distinct,
and favorable or unfavorable according
to the apparent prosperity of the paper,
which, to most people, reflects that of
the town in which it is published. Not
a lew towns and districts in British Columbia are remiss in this retpect. Some
have papers and don't deserve one, and
most of them have better papers than
they have a right to expect. They starve
the paper and in so doing militate
against their own interests. This matter
is rarely discussed hy the papers themselves, and for that reason those who
should give it their attention seldom
think of it. The people of a rural community, can make no better investment
than their contributions to the support
of their local papers."

New Denver,
Soys Asiatic Immigration is
Most Important Question
Affecting B.C.
Conservative Party Pledged
To Total Exclusion.
It was a large and enthusiastic audience that assembled in thc Bosun Hall
on Thursday evening to listen to Mr.
A. S. Goodeve, the Conservative nominee expose the misdeeds of the Laurier
administration and show cause why the
electors of Kootenay should return a
member of the Conservative party
to the Federal House.
Mr. A. St. Clair Brindle occupied the
chair and Mr. W Hunter, M.P.P. was
also on the platform.
Mr. Goodeve on rising to address the
meeting was received with loud applause. He said that of all issues at
present before the Dominion, the Asiatic question was the most important.
There was a strict line of demarcation
between the parties on this point; and
to show the standpoint of each he
would confine in his authorities to official documents which could not be controverted. He showed that in 1894,
when Japan made application for treaty
with Great Britain and North America
the Conservative party decided that a
clause should be inserted retaining the
control of Japanese immigration in the
hands of Canada. Japan agreed to this
condition, but before ratification, the
Conservatives were defeated at the
polls and the Liberals returned to power. They did nothing in question for
some years, but the question becoming
a burning one they were forced to give
it attention; and in spite of an adverse
report regarding the immigration which
a Royal commission of three Liberals
brought in, the treaty with Japan was
finally ratified without the clause protecting us from an influx of Japanese.
He proved from speeches of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sydney Fisher, and Mr.
Lemeieux that they all had at various
times declared themselves opposed
to exclusion, and quoted Mr. Sydney
Fisher as saying "it would be to the
advantage of Canada to import hun
dreds of thousands of Japanese into this
country to teach our Western men how
to farm." As opposed to this attitude
he compared that of the Conservative
party, which he claimed had been con*
sistent for twelve years and lay in the
desire for total exclusion.
By instancing labor conditions Mr.
Goodeve went on to insist that it was
absolutely essential to adopt drastic
measures if British Columbia were to
remain under the- control of the An-
glo-SxaoK race.
The second plank on which he claimed
the support of the electors was that of
���'Better Terms," showing that the
treatment meted out to British Columbia by 6ir Wilfrid Laurier was unfair,
and how but for the appeal of Mr. MeBride to London, the British North
American Act would have been amended in such a way as to finally saddle injustice oh this province.
The third point he made against the
present administration was the fact
that they had broken every pledge on
which they attained power. He showed
how the Election Act had been abused
in the provinces of Manitoba, Alberta,
Ontario, Quebec, and in the territory
of Yukon. He referred to the service
Mr. Borden had done the country in
preventing the passage of the Ayles-
worth Bill which, if passed, would
have disfranchised practically every
Conservative in Ontario, Manitoba and
British Columbia. Another instance of
such tactics he brought forward in the
deferring of the election in the Kootenay, which he declared was not only
unjust but also unnecessary.
The Liberals had promised to reduce
expenditure and decrease taxes, but as
a matter of fact they had actually increased the per capita rate. While the
population had increased only 12 per
cent., the per capita rate has increased
163 per cent, and the expenditure 165
per cent. While this enormous increase
sn expenditure has occurred the Liberals had nothing to show for the money.
He instanced many cases in which it
had been frittered away and wasted,
e.g., the Quebec bridge, which though
$8,000,000 of public money had already
been spent and 80 men killed in connection with it, is still to build.
He quoted from government blue
books showing from the reports of Royal Commissions that much waste had
gone on in connection with lighthouses
and buoys, the fitting of ice-breakers
"Montcalm" and "Arctic." Finally,
referring to some of the land scandals
in the Nortwest, Mr. Goodeve claimed
that a Conservative government should
be elected to secure pure administration and appealed to them to vote for
him as a member of the Conservative
party who were pledged to the total
exclusion of Asiatics and opposed to ail
forms of graft.

The following article from the pen of
Hon. Richard MeBride appeared in a
recent is-ue of the Standard of Empire,
London, England:
"Among the many problems affecting
the Empire and its future, one that of
recent years has loomed large in the
public view and has attracted increased
attention from the thoughtful minds, is
that of Oriental immigration, its possibilities and its dangers. I wish to touch
briefly on this problem as it affects Canada, and, more especially, as il affects
this Pacific province of Canada, which
I have the honor to serve. It will be
remembered by oversea renders tbat
British Columbia forms the Empire's
one Pacific frontier.
"More expeditious and frequent means
of communication across the Pacific, the
sudden rising of Japan to the status of
a world power, the indications of the
awakening of China, and the commercial growth of the western coast of the
continent of Nortli America, have
brought us face to face here with conditions very different from those existing even one decade ago. To this must
be added the migration from India, a
new and difficult phase of the situation
that until recently had not been anticipated. The obvious difficulty of tbis
aspect of the question is the fact of the
people of India being our fellow subjects of the Empire.
"Alive to the danger of having her
small population of whites swamped by
an Oriental flood, the province of British Columbia for a number of years past
has been persistent tn her efiorts to
secure from the Dominion government
adequate restrictive measures against
Asiatic immigration, not in the spirit of
hostility, but from the natural desire
for self protection, coupled with a patriot determination to people our soil wilh
a sturdy, progressive race, which riiould
be a source of strength to the Empire of
which we form a part.
"With her immense area of nearly
400,000 square miles, rich in natural resources of timber, fish and minerals,
with a delighful climate and lands admirably adapted to support a large and
prosperous white populace, this Pacific
province of Canada has provided a lode-
stone for the Oriental, against whose
intrusion the people of British Columbia, through their legislature, have
strenuously endeavoured to place barriers, believing that they were thereby
actiug in the best interests not ouly of
Canada, bat of the Empire at large.
"Whatever good there may be in the
Oriental, hi. idea, are not those of a
White civilization, nor ran East and
West ever truly assimilate. The result
of an unrestricted immigration of Asiatics could only be gradual extermination of the whites and the absorption of
this country by the yellow and brown
races, an end which no patriotic citizen
of the Empire can view with equanimity.
Britisli Columbians believe and feel
that their duty to the great nation of
which they form a part is to build up
and strength.n tlieir own portion ot
Greater Britain, and that the Empire as
a whole would be weakened were they
to fail in the task imposed upon them
of keeping this a white man's country,
where the nation may find a source of
strength, and where the genius and the
best traditions of the Empire may take
root and flourish.
"The former under-secretary for the
colonies, Mr. Winston Churchill, in his
recent admirable series of papers on "My
African Journey," lays down the axiom
that the colonies with a white population have the right to forbid the entry
of large numbers of Asiatics, and to preserve themselves Irom the racial chaos
and economic uisturkance inseperable
from such immigration. Such country
is the province ot British Columbia.
The only plea that can be advanced for
the entry of Orientals is that it affords
a cheaper class of labor.
"This plea is of conrse advanced by a
certain section nf the community. But
it is also true that no country can be
built well and strongly with cheap alien
labor as its basis. The native of India,
while net an alien, has proved unsuitable aa a laborer in British Columbia,
the cooler climate and robust conditions
here being altogether foreign to his nature, and while thrre may be portions
of the Empire where he could find a
scope for emigration, it would be no
more or less than a kindness to prevent
him coming to Canada.
"In touching thus briefly this particular Problem of the Empire, I am speaking only from the standpoint of British
Columbia. The question as it effects
the Empire as a whole is a most important one, and I notice that recently
it has been discussed in the British
press, among the writers being Lord
Ampthill, who, In a letter dated April
14th endorsed a proposal by Mr. R.
Munro Ferguson and others that a conference representing the various parts
of the Empire affected should meet to
consider the whole matter. In this view
I cordially concur, for undoubtedly the
interchange of views would do much to
remove misunderstanding and pave the
way to a solution in the best interests
of the Empire, whose progress and well
being we all have at heart."
Don't knock. Help yourself along by
by becoming popular, nnd push your
friends along with you. It's very easy.
Be a good fellow and soon you'll have a
procession of followers. No man ever
helped himself knocking other people
down in character and business.
Mr?. R. McPherson, of Rosebery, is

It may not he Curtisous to say so,
but sifter the election in Kootenay it will

A SINGULAR colony It was of
whicli the shipwrecked party
found themselves now to he
' members. The St. Cbrlstophe
had left Hochelle three weeks before
with four small consorts conveying 500
soldiers to help the strangling colony
on the- St. Lawrence. The squadron
had become separated, however, nud
the governor was pursuing his way
nlone In the hope of picking up the
others In the river. Aboard he had a
company of the regiment of Qucrcy,
tlie staff of his own household, St. Valuer, the new bishop of Canada, wilh
several of his attendants; three Itecol-
let friars, five Jesuits bound for thc
fatal Iroquois mission, half a dozen
ladies on the w..y to join their husbands, two Ursullne nuns and ton or
twelve (.admits whom love of ndven
lure nnd the hope of bettering their
fortunes had drawn across the sens.
There was pence between England
and Franco nt present, though feeling
ran high between Canada nud New
York, Hie French believing, and wltb
some justice, that the English colonists wero whoo.hig on the demons
who attacked them. Ephralm and his
men were therefore received hospitably on hoard, though the ship was so
crowded that the} had to sleep wherever they could liud cover and space
for their bodies. The Catinats, too,
had been treated in an even more
kindly fashion, th weak old man and
the beauty of lib daughter arousing
the Interest of the governor himself.
Do Catlnat had during the voyage exchanged his uniform for a plain somber suit, so that, except for his military bearing, there was nothing to
show that'he was a fugitive from the.
army. Old Cntinnt was uow so weak
that be wns pnst the answering of
questions, bis daughter was forever nt
his side, and the soldier was diplomatist enough, after n training at Versailles, to say much without saying
anything, and so their secret was still
On the day after the rescue they
sighted Cape Breton In the south, and
soon, running swiftly before an easterly wind, snw the loom of the east
end of Anticosli. Then they sailed
Up tlio mighty river, though from mid*
channel tho banks on either side were
haMly to be seen. As tbe shores narrowed In tbey saw the wild gorge of
tlio Saguenny river upon the right,
with tli^e smoke from the little fishing
aud trading station of Tadousac
streaming up above the pine trees.
Thence the ship tncked on up the river
past Mai Bale. Amos Green, leaning
ou the bulwarks, stared with longing
���eyes nt the vast expanses of virgin
woodland, hardly traversed save by an
occasional wandering savage or hardy
coureur de bols. Then the bold outline of Cape Tournioute loomed up In
front of them, they passed the rich,
placid meadows of Laval's slegneury
of Boaupre, nnd, skirting tho settlements of the island of Orleans, they
snw the broad pool stretched out ln
front of them���the falls of Montmo-
rencl, the high palisades of Point Levi,
the cluster of vessels, and upon the
right that wonderful rock, with its diadem of towers, nnd Its township huddled round its base, the center and
stronghold of French power ln America.
The old merchant had pined away
since be had left French soil, like a
plant whicli has been plucked from Its
roots. The shock of the shipwreck and
the uiffht spent in their bleak refuge
upon the Iceberg bad been too much for
his years and strength.
Since they had been picked up he had
lain amid the scurvy stricken soldiers,
with hardly a sign of life save for his
thin breathing and the twitching of
bis scraggy throat. Now, however, he
opened his eyes nnd raised himself
slowly nnd painfully upon his elbow.
"What ls it, father? What can we do
for you?" crleil Adele. "We are In
America, and here ls Amory and here
am I, your children."
But the old ruhn shook his head. "The
Lord has brought me to tlie promised
laud, but be fcas not willed that 1
should enter Into It," said he. "But at
least I should wish, like Moses, to gaze
upon it if I ean'iot set foot upon It."
A infinite later tlie old merchant was
on deck, and tbe two young men bnd
seated hiin upon it ooil of rope with his
back against the mast, where he should
be awny from the crush. Tlie soldiers
were already crowding down into the
boats, and nil were so busy over their
own affairs that they paid no heed to
the little group nf refugees who had
gathered round Hie stricken mnn. He
turned his bend painfully from side to
side, and Ills lids fell slowly over bit
eyes, whicli had been looking nwny out
past Folnt Levi nt tho roMing woods
and the faroff mountains. Adele gave
a quick cry of despair and threw her
arms round the old man's neck.
"He Is dying, Amory; he Is dying!"
she cried.
A stem Franciscan friar who had
been telling bis beads within a few
paces of them heard the cry.
"lie Is Indeed dying," he said ns he
gazed down nt the ashen face. "Has
tiie old mail had tho sacraments of the
But the old Huguenot hnd opened
his eyes, and witli a last flicker of
strength he pushed nwny the gray
hooded ligure which bent over him,
"I left ull that I love rather thau
yield to you," he cried, "and thiuk you
that you can overcome nie now?"
The Franciscan started back at the
words, aud bis bard, suspicious eyes
shot from De Catluat to tho weepiug
"So!" said he. "You ure Huguenots,
"Hush! Do not wrangle before a
man who la dying!" cried De Catinat
In a voice as fierce as bis own.
"Beforo a mnn who is dead," said
Amos Green solemnly.
As be spoke the old man's face had
relaxed, his thousand wrinkles had
been smoothed suddenly out ns though
on Invisible hnnd had pnssed over
tiiejji. and bis Jioud fell back aenjust
tne mast. Aaeie remnlnea motionless,
with her arms still clasped round his
neck and her cheek pressed against his
shoulder.   She had fainted.
De Catinat raised his wife and bore
her down to tbe cabin of oue of the ladies who had already shown them
some kindness. A brief order was given that tbe old merchant should be
burled in tbe river that night, nnd
then, save for a sailniaker who fastened tbe canvas round him, mankind
had done Its last for Theopbile Catinat.
With the survivors, however, it was
different, and when the troops were all
disembarked they were mustered ln n
little group upon the deck, nnd an officer of the governor's suit decided upon
what should be done with them. He
was a portly, good humored, ruddy
cheeked man, but De Catinat snw with
apprehension that the Franciscan friar
walked by his side as he advanced
along the deck and exchanged a few
whispered remarks with him.
"It shall be seen to, good father; It
Shall be seen to," said tbe ofllcer Impatiently. "I am a zealous servant of
the holy church."
"I trust that you are, M. de Bonneville. With so devout a governor as
M. de Deuouyille it might be an ill
"thing even In this world for the officers of his household to be lax."
The soldier glanced angrily at his
"I would have you remember, father," said he, "that if faith is a virtue
charity is no less so." Then, speaking
In English, "Which is Captain Savage?"
"Ephraim Savage of Boston."
"And Master Amos Green?"
"Amos Green of New York."
"And Master Tomlinson?"
"John Tomlinson of Salem."
"And Master Mariners Hiram Jefferson, Joseph Cooper, Seek-Grnce Spnuld-
Ing and Paul Cushlng, all of Massachusetts Bay?"
"We aro here."
"It is the governor's orders that all
whom I have named shall be conveyed
at once to the trading brig Hope, which
is yonder ship with the white paint
line. She sails within the hour for tho
English provinces."
A buzz of joy broke from the castaway mariners nt the prospect of being

and they hurried awny to gather together the few possessions wliich they
had saved from the wreck. The officer put his list in his pocket and
stepped across to where De Catinat
leaned moodily against the bulwarks.
"What Is to be done with us?" asked
De Catinat.
"You are to he confined to the ship
until she sails, which will be in a week
at the furthest."
"And then?"
"You are to be carried home in her
and hauded over to the governor of
Rochelle, to be sent back to Tarls.
Those are M. de Denonville's orders."
De Bonneville left De Catinat with
a few blunt words of sympathy, but
the friar still paced tho deck, with n
furtive glcuce nt him from time to
time, and two soldiers who were stationed upon tbe poop passed and repassed within a few yards of him.
They had orders evidently to wntch
his movements. As he stood gazing
his attention was drawn nway by the
swish of oars, aud a large boat full of
men passed immediately underneath
where he stood. .
It held the New Englanders, who
were being conveyed to the ship which
was to take tbem home. There were
the four seamen huddled together, and
there In the sheets were Captain
Ephraim Savage and Amos Green conversing together nnd pointing to the
shipping. The grizzled face of the old

close to him and the air was hot and
heavy. That night he found it Impossible to sleep, and he lay tossing under
his blanket, thinking over every possible means by whicli they might bo able

But what wns that? Above tho gentle lapping of the river ho hnd suddenly
heard a shnrp, clear "Hist!" Perhaps
It was some passing boatman'or Indian. Theu It came again���that eager,

As he lifted It up and looked closer at
it a thrill passed through him. It bad

Amos Green upon the second day that

This wns a signal, then, and Amos
Green bad not deserted them, after all.
He dressed himself, all lu a tremble
with excitement, and went upon deck.
It was pitch dark, and he could see no

somewhere lu the fore part of the ship
showed that the sentinels were still

"Who is there?" he whispered.
"Is that you, De Catiuat?"
"We have come for you."
"Cod bless you, Amos!"
"Is your wife there?"
"No, but I can rouse her."
"Good! But lirst catch this cord.
Now pull up the ladder."
De Catiuat gripped the line whlcb
was thrown to him nnd on drawing It
up found that it was attached to a rope
ladder furnished at the top with twr
steel books to cnteh ou to the bulwarks. He placed them In position and
then made bis way very softly to the

But De Cntinnt was not a man with
whom It wns safe to trifle. His life
had beeu one of quick resolve and
prompt nctlon. Wns this vindictive
frim* at the last moment to stand between him and freedom? It was a

seized him by the gown. As he did so

London   Chemist's   Clever   Invention
Used   For  Many   Purposes.
The soles of policemen's boots made
of goats' hair, seaweed, dust and
This is not a recipe from "Alice in
Wonderland," but the composition ol
a substitute for leather, invented by
John Campbell, a chemist, long employed in the rubber trade, who resides at Wood lane. Shepherd's Bush,
London, England.
Fourteen years ago Mr. Campbell
began experiments with old rubber,
but these he discardod some time ago,
and now he has perfected and patented a substance which, in a fluid, pliable or hard state can be used for a
very large variety of purposes.
From seaweed, carpet dust, goats'
hair, Irish moss, gums and a chemical
process which is his secret, Mr.
Campbell has already made the following astonishing list of commodities: Policemen's boots (outer soles
and heels), picture frames, ornamental
mouldings (for railway carriages), partitions (to resemble wood), belting (for
machinery), upholstery, bobbins (for
cotton spinning), electric switchboards, flooring, golf balls, fountain
pens, "marble," in all colors; chessboards, bookbindings and "ivory"
A reporter recently visited the laboratory, which will shortly give place
to a factory, and examined many of
the samples. Mr. Campbell makes no
startling claims for his invention, and
admits that his composite is not equal
to materials of the highest quality,
but ho says that in the ease of leather, for instance, it provides an excellent substitute in the manufacture of
goods which could not bear the price
of the best hides.
"The product has been tested by policemen and postmen, and the soles
and heels are in good condition alter
nine months' wear," he said.
"Two thousand feet of it are now in
use as belting in machine shops, and
the Bubstance has been proved to be
impervious to oils, acids ox atmospheric conditions.
"It is absolutely non-inflammable.
As it is made of waste products, the
price is low, and, being very light in
weight, it is specially suitable for railway purposes.
"I hope it will be adopted for electrical apparatus. In its hard state it is
a good substitute for vulcanite, and
is less than a quarter tho price.
"I obtain my seaweed from Devonshire, and the most expensive variety
for the manufacture of marbles from
Japan. Imitation marbles and woods
which can be turned out in any color
or design, are mnde of seaweed, moss;
carpet dust, gums and chemicals, hy-
draulically pressed.
"A beautiful marble floor can be obtained by _>ouring the composite in a
fluid state over a floor and allowing
it to set. The seaweed, which can be
colored or made to form any desijrn,
not only gives the effect of the veining
shown in real marble, but the color
and veins go right though the material.
"Any kind of wood can bo imitated,
and in its pliable state the substance
can be used in the same manner as
Cough Remedy.

known to fall lu glvlug relief: Roast a

Eat Less And Live Long.
The Rev. R. Lee James, vicar of
Watford, England, who is over 80
years of age and has held the living
for more than half a century, seems
to have solved the problem of longevity. The less money you spend on
food the longer you .will live, he tells
us. The reverend gentleman never
sleeps more than six hours and strictly diets himsel', decreasing his quantity of food as he grows older. When
he was 60 he knocked off one-third of
what he ate and drank, and at 70 reduced this by another third. He seldom felt an ache or pain, and has only
been to tlie doctors twice in fifty
The change of dietary that comes
with spring and summer has the effect in weak stomachs of setting up
inflammation, resulting in dysentery
and cholera morbus. The abnormal
condition will continue if not attended to and will cause an exhaustive
drain on the system. The best available medicine is Dr. J. D. Kellogg's
Dysentery Cordial. It clears the stomach and bowels of irritants, counteracts the inflammation nnd restores
the organs to healthy action.
At the height of tlieir nightly quarrel the other day Mrs. Blank choked
bnck a sob and said reproachfully:
"I was reading one of your old letters today, James, and you said in
it that you would rather live in endless torment with me tnan in bliss by

Tlie Method of Figuring by Which
It Is Am :ertained
Our Government Recognizes Twe
Kinds of Tonnuge, Gross and Net.
Displacement, the Scale by Which
Cur Ships of  War  Are  Described.
Tbe vocabulary of the sea, always
bewildering to landsmen. Is crowded
full of siranne, technical Jargon and
jf words of familiar meaning on shore
which a float contract a new* nnd arbitrary significance. Take, for example, this mutter nf tonnage of shipping. Ou shore everybody knows that
_ ton is 2.000 pounds if a short ton or
1.2hi if a long one. Therefore it seems
to the landlubber that a 1,000 ton ship
_m.lii to tie. If It ls not, a ship which
can carry a thousand tons weight of
cargo As a mutter of fact, a thou
sand ton ship can probably convey
about 1,300 or 1,400 tons of coal or
heavy merchandise.
Vet the tonnage of shipping is not so
arbitrary as it seems. It follows H
IIxi*tI standard, established by national
Inw. There are two kinds of ton
mine recognized by our government
authorities- gross tonnage and uet tonnage. Tbe gross tonnage of n vessel
Is Its entire Internal capacity measured
in tons of 100 cubic feet, and the unvl-
nntiiiii laws of the United States prescribe lu Careful detail bow this measurement for tonnage shall be uscei'-
talneil Npt tonnage Is measured by
subtracting from tbe gross tounage of
a vessel all space used for tbe accommodation of officers and crew, for certain gi* if for the working of tlie ship
and, If a steam vessel, for her pro*
pelllug power or machinery, Including
boilers ami engines.
In other words, tbe net tonnage of
a ship Is virtually the space, expressed
lu tons of 100 cubic feet, available for
the carrying of passengers or cargo
In the ease of sail vessels, from which
no machinery space has to be deducted, the gross tonnage and net tounage
of a vessel are very nearly the same.
Hut in steamers the two measurements
ar. widely different. Take, for exam-
pi.. oiip of the largest of American
merchant steamships, the American
liner St. Louis. Her gross tonnage.is
Il,tl20. her net tonnage 5,894. So with

Dingley of tlie line from Boston to
rortlaud Her gross tounage ls 3,820.

In all or nearly all of the ports of
the world ship taxes or dues are based
upon tonnage, lu tbe United States
nptill net tonnage. This is also the
standard of tolls for tbe Suez canal
As a result the effort of naval architects and shipbuilders nud shipowners
generally is to keep the net tonnage of
n ship as small ns ponslble, nud many
Ingenious devices for "cheating measurement" have been adopted, designers of merchant vessels being ns adept
in this art its designers of racing
yachts. Hut the navigation laws of
the United States are exceedingly vigilant on this point and nro regarded as
fair and reasonable In their requirements, so thut this evil of fraudulent
tonnage Is believed to be less serious
under the flag of the United States
than in the merchant navies of some
other countries. ,
Landsmen may well be pardoned for
their perplexity tbat tonnage, ln tbe
vernacular of the sea, should mean
sometimes one thing and sometimes
another. The navy department adds
to the inevitable confusion by describing our ships of war ln terms not of
gross register or net rei*lster, but of
displacement. Thus the Massachusetts
Is spoken of officially as a battleship
of 10.300 tons nnd the Vermont as a
battleship of 10,000 tons. This menus
In each ease that the ship displaces so
many tons of water. But the Massachusetts If measured as merchant vessels are measured would have a net
tonnage of only 3.204 and would have
to pay dues on that only If passing
through the Suez canal. This practice
of the navy department of using displacement tonnage Instead of gross or
net tonnage gives the public an exng
geruled Idea of the actual size of our
ships of war. As a matter of fact, the
greatest battleships we have fall short
of tbe bulk of the mightiest of our
Again, another complexity as to tonnage arises in the cargo capacity of a
merchant ship. Take, for example, a
typical Boston steam freighter, the
Lyra of the Boston Towboat company.
Her gross tonnage ts 4,417;.* ber net,
3,510 But the Lyra has a capacity of
upward of 5,000 tons dead weight of
These national measurements of
shipping, though apparently arbitrary,
are Indispensable, for ships cannot be
classified with any exactness on the
basis of the tons of cargo they will
actually carry. A ship which could
receive nnd transport safely 5,000 tons
of weight of pig Irofi would not hold
5.000 tons of hny or cotton. Therefore the governments of the world
have hnd Jo prescribe measurement
standards of their own, in which the
great marine insurance companies
have had a powerful hand. And the
tendency ls to bring these standards
Into more uud more complete conformity.

Walking   Suits   Every   Mocd,   Softens
Troubla and Tempers Sorrow.
There is no substitute for the art ol
walking. It permits no proxies.
Books may be retold by the reader,
sermons repeated by the hearer, pi*"
turps may be described by the art
critics or the humbler visitor. No
one can portray the pleasures of walking, nor can its advantages be secured at second hand. It must be one's
awn individual employment. Walking is a game for any mood. The sad,
the downhearted, the exuliant, the
serenely content, all, and those in
any other mental condition, may find
satisfaction in wandering out upon
She earth. Walking softens sorrow,
tempers troubl. and adds a halo unto
happiness. It gives health and vigor
to the body and mind. Many a headache has been chased away by walk-
iritr and ninny a heartache lifted or
lightened. The best thing for the inside of a man is the outside of the
earth. Unlike other games, walking
may be played in company or alone.
It may be for one, two or more. It
is at its best, of course, when played
by two who are really one. Yet a
solitary journey is better far than a
continual stay in the house of toil or
in company gay. Better loaf and invite one's soul than work or play
overmuch and lenvo one's spirit atrophied. Sunshine nnd fresh air are twin
agents in the promotion of happiness
and health and peace.
Every man who walks should be a
lover. He should be not. merely a
lover of his companion, but of tbe
birds and tiu/./.ir.j; been, the bursting
leaves and the blue ceiling of the
iky beyond. One may walk in winter
days full of frost and in summer
when tho dnys are full of fire. 'Tis
in the year's rosy dawn, when nature
is robing in garments of green and
gold, that she gives most of her
beauty to hiin who loves ai.d worships
her. Tlie man who slowly walks
idown the street or through the country fields may then, if ever, look
through the nature up to the nature's
God.��� WaJt/ir Williams in Columbia

to complain against whnt they call

A skilled surgeon may charge $250
for a simple appendicitis operation.
The patient, who never thinks of complaining until lie is convalescent, objects oftentimes to paying the bill.
He says, "It Is outrageous for a surgeon to charge $250 for-half nu hour's

Yet surgeons of known ability aud
national, perhaps International, fame
have a general plan ln charging for
operations. Their prices range from
nothing to $5,000. They will operate
without any question of willingness or
ability to pay lu auy ease where tho
situation Is Imperative. Afterward
they will present the bill. The general
public does not understand how a surgeon will charge one man $50, another

They aim to charge the patient about

MISS DELLA 8TROEBE, 710 Richmond St., Appleton, Wis., writes:
"For several years I was in a rundown condition, and T could find no relief from doctors and medicines. I
could not enjoy my meals, and could
not sleep at night. I had heavy, dark
circles about the eyes.
"My friends we're much alarmed. I
was advised to give Peruna a trial, and
to my joy I began to Improve with tho
first bottle. After taking six bottles I
felt completely cured. I cannot say too
much for Peruna as a medicine for

Much Interest Evinced In Outcome
of the Contest.
At the recent annual outing of the
State Coal Dealers' Association at
Clear Lake, Des Moines, la., Miss
Olive Mott won the wading contest
in the presence of 600 admiring spectators. The conditions were that
barring shoes and stockings, each
competitor should wear her accustomed clothing; if tlie lake water
netted her lingerie she was disquali-
fed at once.
i Miss Mott's father is president of
the association, and, being very anxi-
1 ous she should win, said to her paternally: "Go as far as you like, Olive.'
I Miss Mott, who is a very tall girl,
went seventy-five feet into the lake,
five feet further than her nearest competitor, Mrs. G. L. Reeves. And the
winner was the only one of the eighteen waders whose clothes remained
as dry as if they bad just come from
lhe ironing board.
1 The eighteen took off their shoes
and stockings in a tent, and, ufter
other necessary preparations, walked
to the lake between two lines oi
women, each of whom had a parasol
over her shoulder, so all the men m
I Ihe outing rushed to the wnter s edge
and   got  their  feet  wet.    The   three
I men who judged the interesting con-
! test were in a small boat. There had
been much rivalry for the position of

Lord Linlithgow   Der.linsd   Invitation
to Sunday Merry-Making.
Several stories are told about Lord
Linlithgow, the lirst Governor-General of the Australian Commonwealth.
In the colonies his lordship was a
great success, and it is related of the
earl that when paying his official
visit to Gippsland he rode through
the country attired in bush garb-
colored shirt, breeches, top boots and
Blouch hat. At Alberton he was received by the municipal fathers in
shirt sleeves, and they, thinking to
do him honor, invited him to a boating and fishing picnic on the following Sunday. Lord Hopetoun, as he
then was, replied that, as he never
went fishing on Sunday, he was unable to accept. Although a Scotsman,
Lord Linlithgow usually attended the
St. Patrick's Day demonstration in
Melbourne. At one of these gatherings he related bow, as a very young
man, he had bet out on tour of Ireland. A Dublin borsekeeper, who
fitted him out for the expedition,
slyly remarked that perhaps his eye
would linger on some pretty colleen
who would make him happy for life.
"It did," remarked his excellency,
amid general laughter, in which Lady
Linlithgow, wbo is the daughter of
an Irish peer, heartily joined.
Lady Balfour's Kindness.
Lady Blanche Balfour, the mother
of Mr. Balfour, was once hurrying to
catch an afternoon train for her
home, when she noticed a child weeping piteously in the street. Lady
Blanche at once stopped and inquired the reason of its distress and the
little one sobbed out that her mother
was dying and that they were all
starving at home. Lady Blanche, the
kindest-hearted of women, put all
thoughts aside of catching her train
and went instead with the child to
ascertain if the story was true. It
proved to be so, one of those terrible
tragedies of humble life where the
.dying widowed mother was troubled
In death over the future of her children. Her visitor, however, reassured her, and promised to care for
those helpless beings left behind to
face the battle of life. Lady Blanche
kept her promise, she took an active
interest in her proteges and finally
started them in various useful professions.
Ants Build Skyscrapers.
The white ants, or termites, nre
great builders. A naturalist exploring in Somaliland came across a cone
shaped mud and clay hill which they
had constructed which was eighteen
feet in height, while many others
were from ten to fifteen feet high.
When one compares the size of these
ants with that of men it becomes apparent that these hills are real skyscrapers from the termite viewpoint,
if there is any. While the average
man is five and one-half feet high,
the ants are only half an inch high.
Therefore a ten foot ant hill is 240
times the size of one of its builders,
while such a structure as the Eiffel
tower, though rising 984 feet, is only
about 179 times the height of the
average man.

The Way This British Vessel Went
Down Off the Cape of Good Hope.
Most of the Crew Were Lost and All
the Women and Children Saved.
Visitors to the hospital of the old
pensioners at Chelsea will perhaps have
noticed in the colonnade a simple memorial tablet, placed there by order of
tbe lute Queen Victoria to record the
heroic constancy and discipline of the
officers nnd soldiers wbo lost their
lives In the wreck of tbe transport Blr-
kenbend off the Cupe of Good Hope on
Feb. 20. 1852. Ou .Ian. 7 in that year, after embarking re-enforcements amounting to fifteen officers and 47G men for
tbe troops engaged In the Kaffir war,
tbe Birkenhead left Ireland for the
cape. Ou board were also 100 women
nud children, the wives and families
of soldiers. All went well till the
transport reached Simon's Town, where
ten oflicers and eighteen men were
lauded. The ship continued her course
on the evening of Feb. 25. But the
captain In his anxiety for n quick passage unfortunately kept so close to the
shore that during the night the ship
got among the rocks which Hue the
const About three miles off Danger
point nt 2 o'clock In the morning of the
20th, while nil except those ou wntch
were sleeping peacefully In their hammocks, the ship struck wltb a violent
shock. The bulk of the men on board
were young soldiers.
The rush of wnter on the Birkenhead
striking wns so great that most of the
soldiers on the lower troop deck were
drowned In their hammocks. The re-
mnlnder, wltb all the officers, appeared
on deck, many only partly dressed, and
fell In ns orderly and as quietly as on
the barrack square. Calling the officers
round him. Lieutenant Colonel. Seton
of the Seventy-fourth hlghlandern, the
senior officer on board, Impressed on
tbem the necessity for preserving order and silence among the men. The
services of the next senior, Captain
Wright, Ninety-first hlghlanders, were
placed at the disposal of the commander of the ship to carry out whatever
orders he might consider essential.
Sixty men were put on the chain
pumps on the lower after deck and
told off lu three reliefs. Sixty more
were put on to the tackles of the paddle box bouts, and the remainder were
brought on to the poop to ease thc
fore pnrt of the ship, ns she was rolling heavily. The commander next ordered the oflicers' chargers to be pitched out of tbe gangway. The plunging
and terrified horses were got up nnd
east over, five of them managing to
swim ashore. Thc cutter was then got
rendy for the women and children,
who had been collected under the poop
awning, and they were passed In one
by one. There being room In the boat
for one or two more, the order was
giveu for any trumpeter or bugler
boys to be taken. A young drummer
standing near was told by an officer
to get Into the bont, but, drawing himself up, exclaimed that he drew man's
pny and would stick by his comrades.
The cutter then shoved off ln charge
of ono of the ship's officers, nnd the
women nnd children were safe.
No sooner was sbe clear than the
entire bow of the vessel broke off at
the foremast, the bowsprit going up ln
the nir toward the foretopmast. The
funnel also went over tbe side, carrying away the starboard paddle box and
bont and crushing the men on the
tackles. The paddle box boat capsized
on being lowered, and the large bont
In the center of the ship could uot be
got up.
The men were then ordered on to
the poop, where tbey stood calmly
awaiting their fate. Within a few
minutes the vessel broke ln two, crosswise, just abuft the engine room, and
the stern began rapidly to fill. In this
extremity the commander called out,
"Those wbo can swim jump overboard
and make for the bouts!" but tbe officers begged the soldiers not to, as the
boat with the women and children
would be swamped. Tbey were young
men In the prime of life, with all before them, yet no one moved, nor did
nny sign of terror or fear escape them.
Lower nnd lower sunk the vessel Into
the deadly sea. The old transport
shivered, gave a final plunge and disappeared, carrying wltn her the band
of heroes on deck and those working
below at the pumps.
Men of all nges nnd ranks they were
���the colonel nnd the drummer boy, officers of gentle birth and men from the
workshop, the plow and the mine, but
���11 animated with the same heroic
resolution, fortitude and chivalry���as
cool us though lhoy had been on their
parade ground, with as much courage
ns In actlou In the field. A few managed lo cling to the rigging of the
���mainmast, part of which remained out
of wnter, while others got hold of floating pieces of wood nnd were eventually
rescued, but of fourteen oflicers and
458 men no fewer than nine officers
and 319 men perished, many falling
prey to the nttneks of the sharks,
which surrounded the ship in shoals,
waiting for their victims. Every wo-
���nun and child was saved.

Has  Been   Here  for  Some   Years,   Is
the Opinion of Dr. Fernow.
"We have been talking for twenty-
six years on the subject of a probable
timber famine, and some time ago
I was asked where was that predicted
timber famine. I said, 'You have
been asleep; it is on us already, for
when prices rise continuously at a
rapid rate there must be a famine.'
and the prices have risen very steadily, as you see.
' "This more or less horizontal line,"
referring to a diagram exhibited at
the meeting, "indicates the prices before 1899, while this rapidly ascending curve represents the prices since
that year, and from the character of
the curve you can see that this rise
in prices will go on, as may also be
predicted from other data, I assure
you. Every year you pay just eight
per cent, more for your wood than you
did the year before. Have you no
interest in that? I mean has the public in general no interest in the forestry question? It seems to me they
have. Everybody must have an interest in it, because it touches his
"There is another point I wish to
make, namely, that, while before 1899
prices went up and down from year
to year, but on the whole remained
level, from the year 1899 prices of all
grades of wood began an upward
course. What is the reason? . The
explanation is simple. In 1899 tlie
data collected by the United States
Census regarding supply and demand
of forest products became known,
which showed that in predicting this
timber famine we were not so very
[ai* out of the way.
"Not supply and demand, but knowledge of supply and demand makes
prices, and the trouble has been in
the past the absence of knowledge ns
to our timber resources, nnd this lack
of knowledee still works against our
work of reform. During the last few
years the knowledge has increased
and the result has been that prices
Iiave risen as it became known that
the supply was less than had been
supposed."���Dr. B. E. Fernow, Dean
of the Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, at annual meeting of

"When I reached the receiving tellei

to the uniformed man, at the same

The  Wonderful  Strong   Room   Under
the Bank of England.
There iS a close analogy between
the struggle of the locksmith against
the burglar and the contest between
armor plate and big guns. Time after time has the locksmith exhausted
hia ingenuity in devising apparently
impenetrable chambers, and again
and again have the marvelous skill
and patience of the burglar foiled
his efforts.
A hundred years ago the Bank rl
England kept its cash and securities
in a great oak box clamped with
iron. From this the strong room of
to-day, constructed of armor plate,
has been gradually evolved.
If a mob overcame the guards and
"watch clerks" at the Bank of England, they could not possibly penetrate into the vaults, for their passage
would be blocked by large reservoirs
of water. The strong room here is one
of the largest in the world. The
foundation, sixty-six feet below street
level, is a bed of concrete twenty
feet thick.
Above this eoncrete is a lake seven
feet deep, and above that thick plates
of iron specially manufactured to -resist both force and skill. Any one
attempting an entrance from above
would find a similar bed of concrete,
a similar lake and similar plates of
iron. The walls are impenetrable,
while the doors are one foot thick,
weigh four tons each and are made
absolutely undrillable.
Many years ago, when the strong
room was less rigorously protected,
the directors were startled one morning by a letter from a man who said
he had been in the vault.
Some days later a heavy chest,
Which had been abstracted from the
"treasury," was returned to the bank
by the writer of the letter, who hnd
gained entrance from the sewers. He\|
was rewarded and given a pension
for life.
In the safe deposit, which has become a necessary adjunct of modern
life, are to bo found the most modern
developments in strong room construction. Ono of the largest in London, which cost $1,000,000, consists
of thirty-two great vaults, whose doors
have no locks mid are worked by
hydraulic power.     '
When the doors are closed the
mechanism is disconnected, and any
one attempting to connect it would
release 50,000 gallons of water and
flood the place from floor to ceiling,
although the strong rooms would remain absolutely dry. Many and
varied are the valuables stored in
these treasure houses.
At another London depository the
writer was shown a room which contained $150,000,000 worth of securities. (
The next contained a collection of
rare books worth $10,000 each, and
another held a collection of old china.
In a fourth were , paintings worth
$500,000, and a fifth contained tapestries which could not be duplicated
for  $250,000.

Gave Him Piece of Shroud.
Some time ago the New Kilpntrick
parish church minister, Rev. J. H.
Dickie, attended, in ministerial capacity, a funeral in Glasgow, and he
was somewhat surprised when the
chief mourner handed him a small
���utting of the shroud. Naturally he
asked the reason of the gift, but the
mourner could not tell him, merely
remarking that it had been an old
custom of her family to present the
minister with a bit of the shroud on
similar occasions. An antiquarian
friend has been looking into the matter, and finds that away back in thi\
thirteenth or fourteenth century an
act was passed for the purpose of
encouraging the wool trade in Scot
land, which ordained that every
corpse be shrouded in a woollen garment, and to make certain that tlie
order was attended to, it was mado
the duty of the parish minister to
examine the shroud before the
coffin lid was "screwed down." In
tho event of the minister not being
able to be present, a "swatch" of tbe
dead person's garment had to be cut
off. and handed to the clergyman who
officiated at the "liftin,." The fact
that the old custom has been preserved in the mourner's family showed that their genealogical tree had a
fairly respectable antiquity.
Queerest of Creatures.
The duckbill, or mulligong, of Australia is one of earth's queerest creatures. It is essentially an aquatic
and burrowing animal. The beak is
well supplied with nerves and appears to be a sensitive organ of touch
by which the animal is enabled to
feel as well as smell the insects and
other creatures on which it feeds.
The duckbill can run on land and
swim in water with equal ease. It is
oovered with fur, which is thick, soft
and readily dried while the animal
enjoys good health.
The food of the duckbill consists
of worms, water insects and little
mollusks, which it gathers in its
cheek pouches as long as it is engaged in search for food and then
quietly eats them when it rests from
its labors.
The Long Lived Parr9.
Thomas Parr, who died in London
in 1635 at the age of 152 is notable
not only for his longevity, but also
for that of his descendants. Parr lies
buried in Westminster Abbey. He
worked his farm at the age of 130 and
married for the second timo at the
age of 122. Robert Parr, a great-
grandson, died in Shropshire in 1757
at the age of 124. His father lived to
be 109 and his grandfather 113. John
Newell died in 1701, aged 127, and
John Michaelson, aged 127 also, died
in 1763. Both were grandsons of
Thomas Parr.

Oaalel Lambert, Who Die* la 1MB.
Got Too Obe'ae to WakMe.
The fame of Daniel Lamt-ert as a
...lampion 'among fat men ln England,
V< noi In tlie -vyorld, 'still remains iip-
l.valed. Daniel wast born at Leicester
In 1770 and died in 180J) at sUmfprfl.
The grandson of a celebrated cock-
fightet and .vMlcted to sport througn-
out his life, his dimensions were pot
���extraordinary, and his habits were not
different fioin those of other'la'ds until hi was fourteen years old. Wlirfl
twenty-three years of a;;e, however, he
turned the scale at thirty-two stone,
and, n' though he is recorded to have
been then able to .walk from Woolwich
to London, at the tlmetof his death, ln
hi*" fortieth year, be had attained the
prodigious weight of fifty-two stone, or
7Z8 pounds, and was more or less helpless. He was a modest man, and when
be bad achieved physical greatness
fame was thrust upon him. He was
for a long time unwilling to be mado
a snow of, but be gained a more tban
'local reputation, and people traveled
from far to see him, resorting to various devices ln order to be allowed to
'do so. At length the prospect of profit
'overcame his resolution, and for four
-years before his death he exhibited
himself ln London and ln the provinces.
He was apparently a man of some
PWlt, for once, before he permitted the
public to gaze upon him, an Inquisitive
person had gained access to his presence by pretending to be a fellow
sportsman Interested ln the pedigree of
a mare, whereupon Lambert promptly
replied, "She was bred by Impertinence
out of Curiosity." Before the days of
Daniel Lambert, Edward Bright of
Maiden waB a well known fat man, although his name no longer lingers as
a household word. He died ln 1750 at
the age of thirty years, weighing forty-
two stone snd seven pounds, and Is
stated to have been an active man till
��� year or two before bis death, when
his corpulency so overpowered bis
strength that his life was a burden and
his death a deliverance. Both Bright
end Lambert seem to have been genial
good humored fellows and very popular
among those who visited them. Indeed popularity seems to be the lot of
the corpulent in fact as well as ln fiction. The heroes of fiction, however,
Iiave the advantage ln the matter of
lasting glory, and the names of Daniel
Lasteert and the fat boy of Peckham
.���ilk lnte insignificance beside those of
jFalstsff and the fat boy in "Mckwlck."
