Aid. Towgood proposed Ihat the resignation should not be accepted, but
Aid. Waite jumped to his feet and said
that was a most unparliamentary proposal.
" Well, then," said Aid. Bennett, " I

proposition which was promptly seconded hy Aid. Towgood.
A remark from Aid. Wailn touching
the Clerk's salary, brought forth a protest from Aid. Towgood that these
sneering remarks were uncalled for and

rebuked the offender.
It looked as if the verbal dynamite
would explode .lmight off, but with

he was concerned his decision was

" I want you to distinctly understand
that I can manage a boat! " were the
convincing words of Al. Palmer to Louis
Pratt at the lower pool at Ward's crossing, near Bonnington, last Sunday.
The words of the Kaslo man were a
direct challenge to our " Looey," who
had gently insisted Ihat ho should take
the oars ns he was the bettor acquainted
rriti. u_o irin'ilnools and cross-eurretits
which abound at this point. But Mr.
Palmer insisted that bis hands had not
lost their cunning and that his eye was
too good to go back on him in any crisis.
Mr. Pratt, however, wisely protested
that it would besnferand more judicious
for him to assume the role of master
maiiner, apd it was then that Al
Palmer burst out with :

that I can manege a boat, and that I
was bucking whirlpools and rapids
'round here when you were paddling

as the assembled rubbernecks sided with
Mr. Palmer, the Saudon man took a
seat in the stem and remarked while
Al. took his in the centre:
"Oh, well; if you know, you know,
you know. Anything for peace and
quiet.    Let her go, Gallagher."
It was then that the longshoreman
wero shown a now stunt. Having
divested himself of his sweater and
pushed off the boat, ho took his seat
and prepared to exhibit his prowess to
the multitude, but, yo gods and little
fishes, the man who knew all about it
took his scat wilh his back to the stern
and pulled the oars with vigor. The
loar of laughter which went up from
tho rubberers did not deter Al. He
pulled with renewed energy, and soon
great beads of perspiration stood out
upon his beetled brow*.
" Good for you, Al. ; " " Protly work,

"Whoa, back pedal," etc., were the

Alter the boat had been twirled
around once or twice on a whirlpool it
made steadily back for the shore, but
still the man who wanted them to distinctly understand that he knew all
about it pulled eteadi'y on.
Presently the boat was safely beached,
and as if lo show his contempt for any
small trifling snag like  that, he bent
down to put more vim into his stroke.
He made one more frantic effort to dig
the blades of tho oars into Mother
Earth, and then he looked up.
The crowds were rolling on the grass
convulsed with laughter; a jackass on
an adjoining ranch looked up from his
meul and peered in wonder through
the fence; the sun went behind a hill
with a sickening thud, and on the
shore stood Louis Pratt, a lemon in
each hand, and as ho advanced to confer them together with tho freedom of

something about " Distinctly understanding" and " Lac Saint Pierre," but

was the Garden Party held ou Wednesday, tho 10th inst., in the Vicarage

with the gathering on tho lawn, the
party was well entertained in the Vicar

exquisite flowers were arranged, and
strawberries and cream and other delicacies were provided by the Ladies' Aid,
aie! which met with a ready s iltiMM
Tho weather continuing unfavorable,
it was deemed expedient to adjourn to
the Bosun Hall, where a large and representative company assembled in the
evening. What with Simpkin's orchestral band, who generously contributed
th.ii- services, the hat trimming competition by gentlemen (Mr. Hurry Lowe
taking the first prize), and tbe excellent
catering of the Ladies' Aid, a most enjoyable evening was spent, terminating
with a dance.
It was to i ur mind tho grandest demonstration of sympathy and generosity
yet witnessed in this camp. A company
of over 150 of tho principal residents,
representing all denominations, certainly must prove most gratifying to
the members of the Ladies' Aid, aho to
the painstaking man at tho helm,
Missioner Baynes. As mentioned in a
previous issue of the Review, the party
was arranged with the hopes of raising
sufficient funds to beautify the exterior
of the church of St. Stephen, and we
learn with great satisfaction that this
has been accomplished.

In part signify that the mine has been

is one which will never be truly chronicled if the directorate or those responsible for the gross mismanagement are
permitted to escape a scathing criticism.
Had as much attention been given to
the development of the great dividend

and retaining a long string of high-
salaried mountebanks, the Payne would
still be a name to conjure with.

several years and finally sold out for

Paying out hundreds ot thousands of
dollars as dividends to lhe delighted
shareholders���money which should have
every cent gone back into the ground���
had the inevitable ending, and when
lhe big ore lenses were sloped oul clean
and the ore converted iulo dividends, it
was but natural that the eastern shareholders, whose knowledge of mining was
crude, should fail to respond to the call
for funds for a systematic proirram of
long delayed development. They had
been schooled to expect dividends until
the mountain had all boon levelled to
the ground, and asking I hem for money
was apparently a new kind of a skin
game. And so I he downfall of ihe
Payne began. Shares which in IS!).!

Beverly Calhoun sat on the balcony I
���with the princess long after midnight.
The sky was black with the clouds of
an approaching storm.    The air was
heavy with foreboding sileuce.   Twice
from  their darkened corner near the .
pillar tliey  saw Baldos  as he  paced |
steadily past the castle on patrol, with
Haddan   at  his  side.     Dreamily   the
watchers  ln  the cool  balcony looked ���
down upon tbe somber park and Its !
occasional guardsman.   Neither was In
the mood to talk.   As they rose at last .
to go to tbelr rooms something whizzed .
through the air aud  dropped  with  a
slight thud ln the center of the balcony.
The two young women started back ln
alarm.    A faint light from Beverly's
window filtered across the stone floor.
"Don't touch It, Beverly!" cried the
princess  as the girl  started forward
with aa eager exclamation. But Ber
erly had been thinking of the very object that now quivered before her ln
tbe dull light, saucy, aggressive and
jaunty as It was the night when she
saw It for the first time.
A long, slim red feather bobbed to
and fro as if saluting her with soldierly
fidelity. Its base wus an orange, into
which it bad been stuck by tbe hand
that tossed It from below. Beverly
grasped it with more ecstasy than wisdom and then rushed to the stone railing, Yetive looking on ln amazement.
Diligently she searched the ground below for the man who had sent the red
message, but he was nowhere in sight.
Then came the sudden realization that
she was revealing a most unmaidenly
eagerness, to him as well as to the
princess, for she did not doubt that he
was watching from the shadows below. She withdrew from the rail In
confusion and fled to her bedchamber,
followed by her curious companion.
There    were    explanations���none    of
"Don't touch It, Beverly!"
which struck speaker or listener as logical���and there were giggles which
completely simplified the situation.
Beverly thrust the slim red feather
into her hair and struck an attitude
that would have set Baldos wild with
joy if he could have seen it The ne-xt
day, when she appeared in the park, the
feather stood up defiantly from the
band of ber sailor bat, though womanly perverseness impelled her to Ignore
Baldos when be passed her on his way
to mess.
The Duke of Mizrox came into the
city hours after tbe time set for his arrival. It was quite dark when the escort sent by Colonel Quinnox drew up
at the castle gates with the visitor.
The duke and his party had been robbed by brigands in the broad daylight
and at a point not more than five miles
from Edelweiss! And thus the mystery
of the signal fires was explained. Count
Marlanx did not soon forget the triumphant look he received from Beverly
Calhoun when the duke's misfortunes
were announced. Shameless as it may
seem, she rejoiced exceedingly over the
acts of the robbers.
Mizrox announced to the princess
and ber friends that he was not an
emissary from the Axphalnian government Instead he was but little less
tban a fugitive from the wrath of
Volga and the crown adherents. Earlier ln the week he had been summoned before Yolga and Informed that his
absence, for a few mouths at least,
from the principality was desirable.
The privilege was allowed him of selecting the couutry which he desired to
visit during that period, and he coolly
chose Graustark. He was known to
have friendly feelings for that state,
but no objections wore raised. This
friendship also gave him a welcome in
Edelweiss. Mizrox plainly stated his
position to Yetive and the prime minister. He asked for protection, but declined to reveal any of the plans then
maturing iu his home country. This
reluctance to become a traitor, even
though he was not in sympathy wltb
his sovereign, was respected by tbe
princess. He announced his willingness to take up arms against Dawsbergen, but would in no way antagonize Axphaln from an enemy's camp.
The duke admitted that the feeling
in Axphaln's upper circles was extremely bitter toward Graustark. The
old time war spirit bad not died down.
Axphain despised ber progressive
"I may as well Inform your highness
that the regent holds another and a
deeper grudge against Graustark," be
said in the audience chamber, where
were asembled many of the nobles of
the state, late on tlie night of his arrival. "She Insists that you are harboring and even shielding the pretender to our throne, Prince Frederic. It
ls known that he ls in Graustark, and,
moreover, It is asserted that he In to

*Lttn>*-��no*li*!i*v'compaiiions looked at
one another with glances of comprehension. He spoke in English now for
the benefit of Beverly Calhoun, an interested spectator, wbo felt her beart
leap suddenly and swiftly toto violent
"Nothing could be more ridiculous,"
said Yetive after a pause. "We do not
know Frederic, and we are not harboring him."
"I am only saying what Is believed
to be true by Axphain, your highness.
It ls reported that be joined you in the
mountains ln June and since has held
it position of trust in your army."
"Would you know Prince Frederic If
you were to see hlm?" quietly asked
"I bave not seen him since he was a
very small boy and then but for a moment���on the day when he and bis
mother were driven through the streets,
on tbelr way to exile." .
"We have a new man In the castle
guard, and there is a mystery attached
to him. Would you mind* looking at
bim and telling us if he Is what Frederic might be ln bis manhood?" Lorry
put the question, and every one present drew a deep breath of interest.
Mizrox readily consented, and Baldos, intercepted on his rounds, was led
unsuspecting iuto an outer chamber.
The duke, accompanied by Lorry and
Baron Dangloss, entered tbe room.
Tbey were goue from the assemblage
but a few minnte's, returning with
smiles of uncertainty ou their faces.
"It is Impossible, your highness, for
me to say whether or not it ls Frederic," said the duke frankly. "He Is
what I Imagine the pretender might
be at his age, but It would be sheer
folly for me to speculate. I do not
know the man."
Beverly squeezed the Countess Dag-
mar's arm convulsively.
"Hurrah!" she whispered ln great relief. Dagmar looked at her in astonishment She could not fathom the
whimsical American.
"They have been keeping an Incessant watch over the home of Frederic's
cousin. He Is to marry her when the
time Is propitious," volunteered the
young duke. "She ls the most beautiful girl in Axphaln, and the family
is one of the wealthiest Her parents
bitterly oppose the match. Tbey were
to have been secretly married some
months ago, and there Is a rumor to
the effect that they did succeed in
evading tbe vigilance of her people."
"You mean that they may be married?" asked Yetive, casting a quick
unce at Beverly.
"It is not improbable, your highness.
He Is known to be a daring young fellow, and he has never failed in a siege
against the heart of woman. Report
has it thut be Is the most invincible
Lothario that ever donned love's armor." Beverly was conscious of furtive glances iu her direction, and a
faint pink stole iuto her temples. "Our
fugitive princes are lucky in neither
love nor war," wen* on the duke. "Poor
Dantan, who ts biding from Gabriel, Is
betrothed to the daughter of the present prime minister of Dawsbergen, the
beautiful Iolanda. I have seen her.
She is glorious, your highnesa "
"I, too, have seen ber," said Yetive,
mnro u-ovci*. man she thought. "The
report of their betrothal Is true, then?"
"His sudden overthrow prevented the
nuptials which were to have taken
place in a month had not Gabriel returned. Her father, the Duke of Mutz,
wisely accepted the inevitable and became prime minister to Gabriel. Iolanda, it is said, rema'ns true to him and
sends messages to him as be wanders
through the mountains."
Beverly's mind instantly reverted to
the confessions of Baldos. He had admitted the sending aud receiving of
messages through Franz. Try as she
would, she could not drive the thought
from her mind that he wus Dantan,
and now came the distressing fear that
his secret messages were words of
love from Iolanda. The audience lasted until late in the night, but she was
so occupied with ber own thoughts that
she knew of but little that transpired.
Of one thin*, she was sure. She could
not go to sleep that night

Warships That Have Them Oo Not
Dare to Use Them.
It ls proposed to omit the ram from
the battleships of the Lord Nelson type
and the cruisers of the Minotaur class,
says a London dispatch to the Philadelphia Ledger. The ram is a weapon
that bas played a prominent part in
naval warfare and appeals to the popular Imagination, but it is regarded as
effective no longer. It came Into general use with the Hotspur class. These
were battleships of 4,000 tons, with n
speed of eight knots. A vessel of this
displacement and speed might have
many opportunities of ramming an adversary, but the service men of today
regard tbe weapon as a troublesome
"Take a ship like this," said the captain of one of the cruisers this week.
"Here is a hull with a dead weight of
10,000 tons and a maneuvering speed
of eighteen knots. Work out the momentum of such a blow as we could
give, and the figures will make your
brain reel. Before you can ram your
ship you must catch ber. With the
high speed tactics of the present day
ttiis ls practically an Impossibility.
You could only catch her if she were
disabled, and no man would ram a
helpless ship.
"Suppose, however, for the sake of
argument, thut you got home a square
eighteen knot broadside blow. You
would cut clean through your opponent Nobody doubts that for a minute. But what state would yon be ln
afterward? Your hull might sustain
the Impact, though T should predict a
general bursting up of plate rivets.
"Half the boilers, whether they were
box ended or water tubes, would blow
up with the shock. Every steam pipe
would give out. The bedding bolts of
the main engine.- would be wrenched
free, and the whole mass of machinery
would be slung into the fore stokehold. Your heavy guns would jump
clean out of theh* cradles. In fact I
would just as soon set light to the
magazine room ns use the ram ln this
ship, for similar result would be accomplished rather more quickly."
Sahara Growing Drier.
I C. F. Gautler, a French explorer, ls
authority for the statement that the
Sahara is continuously becoming drier
to sueh nn extent that the oases are
perceptibly drying up and will disappear altogether in n relatively short
time. He quotes historical records and
physical signs to show that springs
were at one time much more plentiful
than now and that the extent of the
patches where vegetation flourishes
were much greater even fifty to a hundred years ngo. As the climate of the
region has undergone no change In
perhaps thousands of years, he believes
that the disappearance of the wuter
must be due to purely mechanical
causes. He considers that It is due to
the continual advance of tlie great
sand masses to the north, thus forming
an impermeable barrier against tlie
watershed of the Atlas mountains.

Why the Plainsmen Want High and
Sharp Pointed Heels.
In Olathe, Kuu., there Is a factory
which makes 200 pairs of cowboy
hoots each week. Each pair of these
boots ls made to order. The company
has a catalogue, which it sends to the
cattle ruuehes throughout the southwest It tells the cowboys how to take
measurements of their own feet These
ure sent to the factory and the boots
made uud sent out
A cowboy boot is in a distinct
class by Itself. The leg must be decorated with fancy lines and curves
sewed iuto the leather, and, above ev-
erythiug else, the heel must he at
least two Inches high, must curve toward from the back, and the bottom of
the heel must be very smull.
A cowboy lakes especial pride ln two
things���his lint and his boots. He often
(toys tfriO for his hat and the best of
the cowboy boots cost from $8 to $1*3.
The ordinary shoemaker eanuot make
Imots to suit n true cowboy; he cannot
.et the heels right, and so the cowboy
sends away for them and pays a big
price uud express charges besides.
The factory 111 Olathe employs fifty
men. All of the work ls done by hand,
and some of the shoemakers were
brought fj'm (lermany nnd lOngland
especially io work In thnt factory.
Cow-boys say they have high and
sharp pointed heels to their hoots not
because of vanity and pride, but as a
matter of convenience. The high heels
prevent the boots from passing through
the stirrups, nnd they ure also n brace
When on the ground roping an animal.
As lhe stepr pulls to get away the cow-
iiov sinks his sharp heels Into the sod,
ind this prevents him from slipping.���

Engineers'   Certificates.
The Legislature of Ontario at its r<*
cent session passed an act respecting
stationary engineers in which engineers and employers are alike interested. Briefly stated, its provision*
are that, after the first day of July,
1908, no engineer will be allowed to
operate or have charge of a stationary
steam plant of 50 horse power or upwards who does not hold a Government certificate. There are three
classes of engineers to whom certificates will be granted without the
applicant having to undergo an examination, first, those who on the
20th of April, 1907, (the date on which
tlie Act was passed) held certificates
from an association of stationary engineers in Ontario, or a marine or locomotive engineer's certificate; second, engineers who on the above dato
were in charge of a plant of 25 horsepower or over in Ontario; third, engineers who had at any time previous
to the passing of this act, not less
than two years' experience in the Province. Those who cannot qualify as
above will have to pass the examinations which will hereafter be prescribed by the Board of Examiners.

A Toast to "The Ladies"
Since  Adam  first the  apple took,
And for a woman's word and look
Forgot the call of duty,
Innumerable proofs abound
That sons ot men, the world around,
Their  chief  reward have ever  found
In    th'    approving     glance     of
Through  history's entire  page,
In every clime, in every age,
Still  runs the selfsame story;
Since   Helen  kindled   Ilium's  pile,
And Rome went courting up the Nile,
And chivalry in woman's smile
Found its rich meed ot glory.
And it is still as true today,
Whatever some  may think or say.
Your rule  is still  as  royal.
For you we deck the banquet hall,
We pray that on us you'll  let fall
Your gracious smiles; and from us all
Accept a tribute loyal.
Believe me,  many a gallant life
Which,  like  a  ship,  through  calm
and strife,
Sails on in stately splendor,
Were  wrecked and lost from human
But that, like compass-needle true,
Some woman's loud heart guides him
With love steadlast and tender.
Nor let me Ior a moment seem
To speak too lightly of my theme���
My  purpose  is  quite  other.
The  sweetest  words  the  tongue, e'er
The dearest that our language claims,
The tend'rest of all earthly names.
Are sister, wife and mother.
And so, in words sincere tho' gay.
The  tribute  that  wo  herewith   pay
To matron and to maid is,
That in  this presence fond  and  fail
Our fealty  anew  we  swear;
And  here, as well  as everywhere,
We  say:  "God  bless the  ladies."

Compulsory Votin?_ in Practice
Those who hold that the one remedy for graft and bossism is to make
voting compulsory will be interested
in the working of sue!, a law in Austria. In Vienna and Lower Austria
there were 50,000 who failed to record
their votes at the recent election,
and it is expected that they will he
prosecuted nnd fined. But it is the
second election under the new law
that must test its efficacy. The purpose of such a law is not to make
things uncomfortable for a great
many people, nor to punish offenders
against the state, but simply to make
the ballot representative of the entire class entrusted with it. As to
the proportion ot wisdom and virtue among tse stay-at-homes there is
room, of course, for a difference of
opinion, but there can be no doubt
that a large number of people of
ability are inclined to slight a duty
ill which the individual counts for
so little. Their private affairs are
on a larger scale, and it is natural
for them to feel that one vote more
or less is a small matter. The man
to whom one dollar means something is the man to whom one vote
means most.- Springfield Republican.

from a place called Eurocyldon *o
Wigpool Common in the Forest of
Dean and thence to Upper Soudley.
A syndicate has been formed, but up
to the present there has been no visible rush ot fortune seekers. Perhaps
that is due to the feet that the auriferous conglomerates in the Forest of
Dean are supposed to contain only six
grains of gold per ton. There are
two gold mines at present being worked in Wales, one of which makes a
substantial profit. The discovery of
the new reef has set gold seekers
wondering whether Gloucestershire is

favorably. The reef is reported to
bear a remarkable resemblance to the

with the quaintest comments about;

Rescued From Raft.
On its Inst voyage to Port Adelaide,
South Australia, during a south-easterly gale, the British ship Barcore
sighted a mnss of wreckage. On the
wieckage, which consisted of the after
housetop of the American ship Great
Admiral, there were 15 men and a
woman. The Barcore was hove to, but
it was then too dark for the captain
to locate the floating wreckage. At
daylight next day the ship was
brought close, and with great difficulty the life-boat was lowered. A crew
volunteered to try to reach the casta
ways; and, with the help of quantities
of oil, the boat eventually reached
the much exhausted survivors, who
were taken on board. They hnd taken
refuge in two separate portions of the
housetop, and had it not been that
the wreckage acted as a breakwatei
they must have perished. The ship
wrecked pnrty included the mastet
of the Great Admiral, the mate, the
mate's wife, nnd twelve seamen. The
cook nnd stewnrd had succumbed during the first night on the raft. The
survivors were in a pitiable condition, having spent two nights and part
of two days clinging to the housetop
without food or water.

Have Secured Options on Adjoining
Properties, Thus Causing Considerable  Comment   in   Cobalt  Circles
The Ontario-Quebec Cobalt Mining
Company, Limited, has not issued
much information lately as to the
condition of their properties in
Bucke township, and they now claim
that this action has been part of a
coupe which the officers have had up
their sleeves for months past. The
veins that were uncovered during
the earliest operations looked so
good and the reports of the various
mining engineers and experts who
examined the property were so promising that tlie officers decided to
maintain secrecy until tliey could
obtain options on the properties immediately surrounding tlieir mines.
These options have now been secured, it is understood, at reasonable
figures, and recent reports are being
made public. The company's chief
engineer, Mr. A. J_. Hogg, M.E., in
his latest report recommends thut
the main shaft be at once sunk to
the 150-foot level, where the richest
ores in the sectioii have been encountered, and the directors huve practically decided to follow his recommendations. The Hon. L. J. La-
brosse also inspected the Ontario-
Quebec Cobalt properties a few days
ago, and his report is extremely
gratifying to the directois of tho
company. The officers of tlie company expect the Ontario-Quebec Cobalt Mining company to become a
heavy shipper in the near future.
Machinery ordered during the winter is now on tho way to the property, and will be in working shape
within a few weeks. At the present
time, in addition to the superintendent and chief engineer, there are
twenty-four miners constantly at
work  at the  mines.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Brought
Back the Ruddy Glow of Health

sideaches. Sometimes they are unable to sleep; their nerves are unstrung; they are languid, breathless,
nnd the heart palpitates violently at

and it may develop into consumption unless promptly attended to.
Anaemia means bloodlessness. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills make pure, red
blood���that's the secret of their success. Miss Winnie Allen, Montreal,
Que., snys: "I was so weak and run
down that my friends thought I was
going into consumption. I was as

and did not sleep well. The least
exertion tired me out and if I walked
a few blocks I wns almost breathless. My sister advised me to take
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and after
using them for a few weeks I am
again enjoying good health and have
a good color. I think every weak,
sickly girl should take Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make
new, rich blood and in this way
stiike right at the root of such
troubles as anaemia, indigestion,
rheumatism, St. Vitus dance, the
secret ills of girlhood and womanhood and a host of other everyday
troubles, and cure them. But you

Two splendid male specimens of the

for it the name "parson bird." Its
metallic green plumage, with bronze
and purplish reflections, is very beautiful. Its long and rather slender
beak is curved; it has rather large
feet and the length of its tail is considerable.
Although somewhat rarely seen in
this country alive, -.his bird is plentiful on both the north and south islands of New Zealand. It is a good
songster and mimic, and its lively
temperament renders it a most interesting cage bird. Its food consists
of berries, insects, and honey. It has

is forked, and, being covered with fibres, forms a kind of brush, most useful to the parson bird in gathering ita

Timely Advice Given on the Fuel
Subject by W.   H. Aldridge
W. H .Aldridge, manager director
of the Pacific Coal Co., in an interview   yesterday  said:
"The difficulties in the western
^oal fields have been settled for '.wo
years, and it is only a question of
getting sufficient men to enable the
joal companies to amply supply the
.jublic, the industries and tlie rail-
vvays. Some of the coal companies
are short of men at the present time,
out it is hoped that this shortage
will be made up during the next
inonth or two.
"One important cause for the coal
shortage last winter was due to the
public waiting until fall before laying in their winter supply. During
last summer a number of the mines
did not have sufficient orders to operate over three or four days a week,
and in the fall the coal companies
had more orders than could possibly
be filled.
"The severe weather later in the
season made it impossible for the
railways to handle all the traffic and
supply sufficient cars, and it was
equally difficult for the coal companies to operate to tlieir fullest capacity under tlie severe weather conditions.
"If the public will, so far as possible, take tlieir coal supply during
the summer months, when weather
conditions are favorable for both railways and mines, there need be no
fear of any coal shortage during the
coming winter."���Manitoba Free

High-Class Cheese.
In the production of high-class
cheese, it is essential that the milk
be clean, sweet, and free from foreign flavor upon renching the factory. Both the quality of the product will suffer when the raw material is inferior. Unless the patrons
supply milk of good quality, they
cannot in justice hold the maker responsible for the quality of goods
made therefrom. The health of your
cows, tbe water supply, the quality
of the food, the condition under which
milk is drawn from the cow, the care
used in seeing that it is not exposed
to dirt or dust of any kind, proper
handling, etc., all require unceasing
watchfulness   and   care.
In order that the maker may receive instruction regularly and periodically, and thot the producer may
be directed where in he may improve
in the production and care of milk,
the Department of Agriculture has
employed a staff of instructors to visit
both the factories and the farms upon which the milk is produced. The
Instructor is not a detective, but a
co-worker and educator. All tests for
adulteration will be made at the factory, and action for prosecution left
with some official of the factory concerned.

Women Celebrities  In Jail.
As an outcome of the ultra-aggressive campaign inaugurated by the
suffragettes, there have lately been
contmed in Hollowuy Gaol more
feminine celebrities���of a sort���than
that 'amous prison has ever before
held. And this is "saying something,"
(or "Cocoa Castle"���as its regular pa
trons love to dub it���has seen many
such in days gone by.
Perhaps the most distinguished of
them all was the Duchess of Sutherland, who "enjoyed" its "hospitality"
in 1893. Her Grace "served" six
weeks, living meanwhile in a "cell"
bowered in choicest exotics, and faring sumptuously every day on a succession of dainty dishes sent in from
Mr. Heale's well-known establishment
in the Hollowuy Road.
Her "crime" consisted in tearing
up, In an easily understandable fit of
feminine pique, a legal document to
rhich she had been given access by
the judge of the Probate Court.
Another famous lady prisoner at
Hollowny was Mrs. Weldon, who was
confined there in 1880 for libel. She
made herself a general favorite, and
wardresses and officials used to silently gather outside her cell at night,
contrary, of course, to all regulations
in order to listen to her rendering,
in her sweet soprano voice, of dainty
operatic  morselr,.
These are but two. There are many,
many others. Here wns shut up for
safety Mrs. Carey, wife of the notorious Irish informer, while the Invisibles, who knew she had been
smuggled across to London, were
senrehing high nnd low for her.
fii 1 Bum,* Ume* to��* -here wns
confined there ior a brief spell n
mysterious foreign lndy, about wlioni,
all the higher officials p**ofessed pro-
found ignorance, although thev trent- i
ed her with the grentest deference.
She was registered under the name of
Mary Smith, though she could not
speak a word of Knglish, nnd after a
short incarceration was released by
special ori;er of the Home Office.
Hats Imperil the Entente
Paris���The Matin raises a protest
against the general wearing by
French children of sailor lints, made
in London, with such ribbons as
"H.M.S. Trafalgar," "Victory,"
"Nile," "Cressy," "Aboukir," all recalling French defeats.
"It is nonsensical," says the Matin, "for French children to walk
about with Knglish sailor hats as
though French children were British
subjects. It is the fashion just now
to go to England for boys' sailor hats
and suits, hilt supposing people were
to go to Germany? French mothers
would never allow their off .pring to
wear caps with such words as 'Sedan' or 'Woerth.' "
Count Mazza, Italian consul-general in Canada since 1901, has been
appointed envoy-extraordinary and
plenipotentiary  at  Teheran.
What He Was Looking For.
Sir Robert Bull, the noted astronomer, is fond of telling the following
���itory against himself Sir Robert wa?
engaged to lecture on his own subject
in a remote part of Ireland, but on
ids arrival at the little station hi
walked up and down the platform
looking vainly for the expected conveyance. Finally, when all the other passengers had dispersed nnd diiv

up to him with: "Maybe you're Sii
