New Denver Celebrated Lavishly. Al! tie
is there, ft was Sainton's Day Out.
'irn Fret ai and Ideal Weather.
When the sun rose above the hoary
glaciers and shod in fulsome gladness
its beneficent rays upon the picturesque
town ot New Denver hist Friday morn-
ng, the heai ts of all concerned in the
successful exploitation of the Emplio
Tuy. Cell bunion oflflOT were thankful
that thc crowning desire for & happy
day had been.fulfilled.'Glorious queen's
weather prevailed throughout tho long
day, and from the moment when the
boom of lhe lirst gun sent the gasoline
launch flotilla speeding on their first
handicap race until chanticleer heralded
the dawn of the following mom, there
���was not a dull 'minute to he recorded.
In Ihe ages which ore rolling towards
us New Denver will hold many celebrations, maybe more prodigious and on a
grander scale, but a better or more enjoyable one never. Ilnta off, then, to
the various committees and business
men of thc Lucerne. It a splendid
cffirt, ably accomplished, and withal,
fully appreciated.
From the very onset crowds from all
parts of the Slocan began to arrive.
They came in row boats snd gaudily
bedecked launches, on horseback ami
afoot, by train and steamer, and such
proportions assumed the assemblage
that the oft-icpcated (piery " Docs the
SI ciin hold so many ? " found a response Tin the arrival of fresh contingents in their glad t iggcry, and all sporting multi-colored favors, *
In this most pleasing detail the citizens collectively and individually excelled themselves. Across the main
thoroughfares were extend d banners
and streamers oanylng (heron messages
of loyalty to our hi loved Sovereign and
cheery hospitable greeting tothecrowds
passing beneath New Denver's glorious
inheritance is a charm or beauty which
alone are incomparable, but clothed in
her holiday raiment and smiled upon
liy a summer sun, its attractions were
considerably enhanced. Foliage and
(lowers were artistically grouped along
tho boulevards, whilst ohoice plants
p*ep.d out from every corner. All lhe
stores and hotels were wreathed within
a garb of eveigecn and exotics, the
whole fonnirg a beautiful effort which
redounded to the credit of the propria*
tors tor ski If nines* and enterprise. The
decoration committee were Messrs. A.
Mclnnes, A. Wallace and J. Black, to
whom all honor.
Promptly at 0.80 the father of the
Slocan, Wm. Hunter, M P.P., pressed
the button and the day's sport was
begun. The sho es of (he hike from the

Then came the children's sports, for
which Missioner Baynes proved a competent starter. There were races for
boys under 18, 14, 10 and 7, and the
girls were giadcd similarly. There
were obstacle raceg, tug of war, high

of Sandon, who is acknowledged to be
the best all-round athlete in the Interior.
Much money therefore changed hands
on this event, partisans of both men
freely o.Teiing their cash. Both go!
away to an excellent start, the Sandon
man striking 46 to his opponents 43.
Opposite the wharf the boats hugged
each other, and so they continued past
the Chinese district until nearlng tlie
winning post, when Owens pushed lhe
nose of his boat inch by inch to lhe
front and snatchel a meritorious victory hy a foot. Bearing his blushing
honors with becoming dignity the voting
English received a salvo of applause
which was well merited and unatintingly
bestowed.' When next these rivals
meet may we be (here losoe.
The Launch Unco scratch, lady sicer-
ing, was a pretty event. All the yachts
ill the flotilla lined up for the start in
full view of the spectators, and on the
word "Go," Doc. Brutise got away first
with his sparker igniting beautifully.
Favori e lor this event was, of course,
Ed. Ang'ignon's new boat, tho Leader,
and barring accidents the race was a
foregone conclusion. However, some
difficulty was experienced with the igniting attachment, or was it that Eddie
wus playing 'possum ?���the Leader was
left at tho post. When finally she responded and the spectators heaid the

went up from lhe shore, and men who
hail backed the Li ader breathed freer.
Spooling on like a bird of passage and
steered with accurate precision, the
trim craft leapt after her rivals until
the race was out view of the spectators.
After being on their journey for 45
minutes one of tbe boats hove in tight,
and when the-tricolor pennant of thc
Leader was discerned at the bow the
wildest excitement prevailed. It pass-

Direct from the kick-off Denver broke
away and fur a minute looked dangerous, but the splendid checking of the
visiting string nullified any attempt at
combination. Then Sandon forwards
bore down on the homo citadel and
Atherton hit the upright with a daisy
cutter. Forcing the play in the home
liftgcn the Lucerne goalie was called on
to handle several times. Garrett and
Sc-anlon on the right for the Silver City-
were responsible for excellent combined
work which was loudly applauded.
Their short passing when hard pressed
was quile the prettiest work we have
seen on a Canadian footfall field. From
a hard drive in by Garrett the poal
tender managed to save at the expense
of a corner. A well*placed shot by Sanderson Etruck the referee and bounded
into the net, which ho promptly disallowed. By the aid of Cornwall and
Kelly the home eleven wero shortly
afterwards transferring their attention
to aggressiveness, and a few minutes
later Stonier saved a beaut from Paddy
Barbour. Owens and Gill both look
pot shots which were fruitless, and as
the Lucerne bunch were pressing hard
at this period, it looked us though the
visitors would be the first to fall. It
was here that tho sterling defending
qualities of Bob Turner shone out so
conspicuously. By coolness, dash and
superb judgment he prevented Sandon'.*
downfall at what proved the most
critical slage of the game. Kelso also
cleared time and again beautifully.
A kick ou the nose placed Gill hors
tlu combat for a few minutes, and on
resuming play Forrest, Cliffe and Saudi rson were responsible for Eome pretty
combined wo.k. Towgood, secured
from a past by Jay-Jay, and getting
into his football Btride dribbled the
leather clear through the opposition
and plunked it into tho not out of

the hole and two minutes to half time.
The interval anivid with Twigg and
Garrett scrapping on the touch line.
Resuming play Towgood broke awtty
again, but be was pulled up neatly by
Read, who transferring to Coulthard
enabled the latter to relieve the rush.
Cornwall and Mcdonald tried a run
down, hut the Saudoii hacks were all

a lemon at every essay. Sandon from

E. C, Sandon,
I cannot say without assaying whether
your specimens will contain bismuth or
tin. In minute quantities both these
cons'ituenls are present in tlie ordinary
lead ores of this district. In no case
that I am aware of have cither of these
metals been found in payable quantities,
though one shipment from the Payno
mine indicated as much as 2 p.c.
J. T. F.. Sandon,
I do not qnito understand your letter,
as you seem to use tbe words cleavage
and lamination as indicating the snme
thing. Lamination ii a purely sedimentary structure caused by the settling of
different sized particles, together in
water. Cleavage is a strucpire induced
on certain sedimentary rocks by pressure acting on Bolid rock, nnd is practically unknown except In niet.aniorphic
districts. Lamination is a sine guide
to indicate tho stiike of the rook poss
essit'g i*.; but e'eavage, except where
there i�� proof that it is coincident with
original lamination, is useless for that
purpose. The microscope i-i Ilia onlv
means of accurately nscei tainii g whether a hand specimen is cleaved or laminated. In tho former case the particles are drawn ont into the shape of
lenzes, while in the latter they retain
their sub-angular or rounded form.
G. G., Sandon,
First class antimony ore is supposed
to contain at least 50 p.c. metallic antimony. As thc mineral occurs fairly
pure, this allows 25p.c- gaiigno to be
present, but no more.

The president announced the object
of tho meeting lo he thu consideration
of tho railway and steamer service in
lhe Slocan di-trict.
A. W. Dyer presented a written report on the public meeting held in New
Denver on the subject, at which a rcso
Union was passed condemning tho present service, expressing confidence in
the Noleon board of trade, and asking
that the Nelson biard ap point a committee to co-operate wilh the delegation
from Slocan which will interview the
C.P.R. oTiciah.
R. J. MePhee, speaking on invitation
said that Slocan City wai still getting
its usual service to Nelson, but the
other lake points were suffering a hardship. A steamer pas od every day but
called only three days a week. On the
other days they refuse lo accept or deliver either passengers or mail. He
thought the reduction meant a serious
set-hack to the development of the district.
A. W. Dyer moved that a committee
be appointed to  confer  with the delegates from Slocan points, who were expected to    reach   Nelson   Wednesday
night, who will be:
Sandon, L, Pratt, O. V. White.
Three Forks, Harry Lowe.
New  Denver, J.    Thompson, C.   F,
Silverton, W. II. Brandon, W. Hunter.
Slocan, T. MoNeish.
Speaking to his  motion Mr. Dyer  explained,  what has  already been   pub
lished,   that  tho  steamer scivics   hns
been reduced from six to  three days  a
work,'to the- inconvenience of the people of the district.    He explained  that
the   Slocan  people  believed   the  local
officials to be in sympathy  with  them,
but to be overqled by tho  new  western
management.   He also stated   that  a

AilvisiRO Us to Keep Kicking
Nelson News.
Slocan people are advised that nothing useful is   likely  to  he   obtained   in
the direction ol improving their mail
service by holding indignation meetings. This Is a plain Intimation from
the C. P. 11. that Slocan people must accept what is given without a murmur.
Tho-Oi P. R. is very fond of dictating
those who do not approve of everything
lhnt corporation dees. The Daily News
received similiar intimation from the
C . P. R sources in regard to its complaint, against the nows service supplied
hy the telegraph end of that powerlul
institution. Wc wore told to stop or a
terrible fate would befall us. The people
of the Slocan are given to ui.dcrttnnd
that if thoy continue to kick against
the new mail service they ca'i look for
no betterment?. This is a free country
and it is a Britisher's pilvlllge lo kick.
Our advice lo the peoplo of the Slocan
is to. keep kicking until they secure
what Ihey want. It is morally certain
that the C. P. It. wHI tb nothing unless compelled. We can assure the
Slocan people that Nelson board of
trade will rally to tlieir support and
that no effort will bo spared on the
pait of Ihe independent citizens ol
Nelson to help Slocan secure rodrOSS of
a very burdcneoine giijvaitce
At a public meeting held at Sandon,
011 May 27th, the following resolution
was unanimously passed:
That wo most emphatically protest

(���"loutiqued From  Last Week.l
HE was torn by conflicting emotions.    That the two  friends
had surreptitiously exchanged
messages, doubtless by an ar
rangement perfected since he had entered the service���possibly within the
week���could not be disputed. When
and how had they planned the accidental meeting? What had been their
method of communication? And, above
all, what were the contents of tbe messages exchanged? Were they of a
purely personal nature or did they comprehend Injury to the principality of
Graustark? Beverly could not, ln her ^
heart, feel that Baldos was doing anything Inimical to the country he served,
and yet her duty and loyalty to Yetive
made It Imperative that the transaction should be reported at once. A
word to Quinnox and Ravone would be
seized and searched for the mysterious
paper. This, however, looked utterly
unreasonable, for the vagabonds were
armed and ln force, while Yetive was
accompanied by but three men who
could be depended upon. Baldos, under the conditions, was not to be reckoned upon for support. On the other
hand, If be meant no barm, it would be
cruel, even fatal, to expose bim to this
charge of duplicity. And while she
turned these troublesome alternatives
over ln her mind the opportunity to
act was lost. Ravone and hla men
were gone, and the harm, If any was
Intended, was done.
From time to time she glanced back
at the guard. His face was Imperturbable, even sphinx-like In Its steadiness.
She decided to bold hlm personally to
account. At the earliest available moment she would demand an explanation of his conduct, threatening him If
necessary. If he proved obdurate there
was but one course left ooen to her.
Bhe would deliver him up to the Justice he had outraged. Hour after hour
went by, and Beverly suffered more
than she could have told. The damage was done, and the chance to undo
It was slipping farther and farther out
of her grasp. She began to look upon
herself as the vilest of traitors. There
was no silver among the clouds that
marred her thoughts that afternoon.
It was late ln the day when the party
returned to the castle tired out. Beverly was the only oue who had no longing to seek repose after the fatiguing
trip. Her mind was full of unrest. It
was necessary to question Baldos at
once. There could be no peace for her
until she learned the truth from him.
The strain became so great that at last
sho sent word for him to attend ber In
the park. He was to accompany the
men who carried the sedan chair, ln
which she had learned to sit with a delightful feeling of being ln the eighteenth century.
In a far corner of the grounds, now
gray ln the early dusk, Beverly bade
the bearers to set down her chair and
leave her ln quiet for a few minutes.
The two men withdrew to a respectful
distance, whereupon she called Baldos
to her side. Her face was flushed with
"You must tell me the truth about
that transaction with Ravone," she
said, coming straight to the point.
"I was expecting this, your highness,"
said he quietly.   The shadows of night
were falling, but she could distinguish
the look of anxiety ln his dark eyes.
"Well?" she Insisted impatiently.
"You saw the notes exchanged?"
"Yes, yes, and I command you to tell
me what they contained.   It was the
most daring thing I"���
"Your highness, I cannot tell you
what passed between us. It would be
treacherous," he said firmly. Beverly
gasped in sheer amazement.
"Treacherous? Good heaven, sir! To
whom do you owe allegiance���to me or
to Ravone and that band of tramps?"
she cried, with eyes afire.
"To both, your highness," he answered so fairly that she was for the
moment abashed. "I am loyal to you���
loyal to the heart's coi^-and yet I am
loyal to that unhappy band of tramps,
as you choose to call them. They are
my friends. You are only my sovereign."
"And you won't tell me what passed
between you?" she said, angered by
this epigrammatic remark.
"I cannot and be true to myself."
"Oh, you are a glorious soldier!" she
exclaimed, wltb fierce sarcasm ln her
voice. "You speak of being true! I
surprise you lu the very set of"���
"Stay, your highness!" he said coldly. "You are about to call me a spy
and a traitor. Spare me, I implore you,
thut humiliation. I have sworn to serve
you faithfully and loyally. I have not
deceived you, and I shall not. Paul
Baldos bus wronged no man, no woman. What passed between Ravone and
myself coucerns us only. It had nothing to do with the affairs of Graustark."
"Of course you would say that. You
wouldn't be fool enough to tell the
truth," cried she hotly. "I am the
fool! I have trusted you, and If anything goes wrong I alone am to blame
for exposing poor Graustark to danger.
Oh, why didn't I cry out this afternoon!"
"I knew you would not," he said,
with cool unconcern.
"Insolence! Whut do you mean by
that?" she cried ln confusion.
"In your heart you knew I was doing
no wrong. You shielded me then, as
you have shielded me from the beginning."
"I don't see why I sit here and let
you talk to me like that," she said, feeling the symptoms of collapse. "You
have not been fair with me, Baldos.
You are laughing at me now and calling me a witless little fool. You���you
did something today tbat shakes my
faith to the very bottom. I never can
trust y^u.jsalu. jUood heaven, I. ha,.*
to confess to���to every oife that you are
not honest."
"Your highness!" be implored, coming close to the chair and bending over
her. "Before God I am honest with
you. Believe me when I say that I
have done nothing to injure Graustark.
1 cannot tell you what it was thut
passed between Itavone nud me, but 1
swear on my soul that I bave not beeu
disloyal to my oath. Won't you trust
me? Won't you believe?" His breath
was fanning her ear, his voice was
eager. She could feel the intensity of
Us eyes.
"Oh, I don't���don't know what to say
to you," sbe murmured. "I have beeu
so wrought up with fear and disappointment You'll admit that it was
very suspicious, won't you?" she cried,
almost pleadingly.
"Yes, yes," he answered. His hand
touched her arm, perhaps unconsciously. She threw back her head to give
him a look of rebuke. Their eyes met,
and after a moment both were full of
pleading. Her lips parted, but the
words would not come. She was afterward more than thankful for this, because his eyes Impelled her to give
voice to amazing things that suddenly
rushed to her head.
"I want to believe you," she whispered softly.
"You must���you do! I would give
you my life. You have it now. It Is
ln your keeping and with It my honor.
Trust me, I beseech you. I have trusted you."
"I brought you here"��� sho began, defending him involuntarily. "But, Baldos, you forget that I am the princess!" She drew away In sudden shyness, her cheeks rosy once more, her
eyes filling with tbe most distressingly
unreasonable tears. He did not move
for what seemed hours to her. She
beard tbe sharp catch of his breath
and felt the repression that was mastering some unwelcome emotion ln him
wghts were springing Into existence
ln all parts of the park. Beverly saw
the solitary window iu the monastery
far away, and her eyes fastened on It
as If for sustenance In this crisis of her
life���this moment of surprise, this moment when she felt bim laying hands
upon the heart she bad not suspected
of treason. Twilight was upou them;
the sun had set, aud night was rushing up to lend unfair advantage to tbe
forces against which they were struggling. The orchestra iu the castle was
playing something soft nnd tender���
oh, so far away!
"I forget that I am a slave, your
highness," be said at lust, aud his voice
thrilled her through and through. She
turned quickly and to her utter dismay found bis face nnd eyes still close
to hers, glowing iu the darkness.
"Those men over there," she whispered helplessly���"tbey are looking at
"Now I thank God eternally," he
cried softly. "You do uot punish me;
you do not rebuke me. God, there is no
"You���you must not talk like that,"
she cried, pulling herself together sud-
deuly. "I cannot permit it, Baldos.
You forget who you are, sir."
"Ah, yes, your hlghuess," he said before ho stood erect. "I forget that I
was a suspected traitor. Now I am
guilty of leze majesty." Beverly felt
herself grow hot with confusion.
"What am I to do with you?" she
cried lu perplexity, her heart beating
shamefully. "You swear you are honest, aud yet you wou't tell me the
truth. Now, don't stand like that!
You are as straight us a ramrod, aud I
know your dlgulty is terribly offended.
I may be foolish, but I do believe you
intend no barm to Graustark. You
cannot be a traitor."
"I will some day give my life to repay you for those words, your highness," he said. Her hand was resting
on the side of the chair. Something
warm touched It, and then It was lifted reslstlessly. Hot, passionate lips
burned themselves into the white Angers, and a glow went Into every fiber
of ber body.
"Oh!" was all she could say. He
gently released the hand and threw up
his chin resolutely.
"I am ulinost ready to die," he said.
She laughed for the first time since
they entered the park.
"I don't know how to treat you," she
said In a helpless flutter. "You kuow
a princess has many trials In life."
"Not the least of which Is womanhood."
"Baldos," she said after a long
pause. Something very disagreeable
had Just rushed Into her brain. "Have
you been forgetting all this time that
the Princess Yetive is the wife of
Grenfall Lorry?"
"It bas never left my mind for an
Instant. From the bottom of my heart
I congratulate him. Ills wife is au
angel as well as a princess."
"Well, In the code of morals, Is It
quite proper to be so loyal to another
man's wife?" sbe asked, and then she
trembled. He was supposed to know
her as the wife of Greufall Lorry, and
yet he had boldly shown his love for
"It depends altogether on the other
muu's wife," he said, and she looked
up quickly. It wus too dark to see
his face, but something told her to
press the point no further. Deep down
In her henrt she was beginning to rejoice lu the belief that he hud fouud
her out. If be still believed her to be
the real princess, then be wns���but the
subject of conversation at least had
to be changed.

"Yes, your highness." She did uot

"Did yon lonrn to say 'you all' In

a great leap. There was something
so subtle lu the query that she wus
vastly welleved.
"Never mind about that. sir. You

"I cannot.** '
"Well, he gave you oue hi return. If
you are perfectly sincere, Baldos, yon
will hand that note over to me. It
shall go no further, I swear to you, If,
as you vow, It does not jeopardize
Grausturk. Now, sir, prove your loyalty and your honesty."
He hesitated for a long time; then
from an Inner pocket he drew forth ���
hit of paper.
"1 don't see why It has not been
destroyed," he said regretfully. "What
a neglectful fool I have been!"
"You might hnve said it had beeu destroyed," she said, happy because he
had not said It.
"But that would have been a lie.
Read It, your highness, and return It
to me.   It must be destroyed." j
"It is too dark to read It here." With- j
out a word he handed the paper to her
and called the chair bearers, to whom
he gave Instructions that brought her
speedily beneath one of the park lamps.
She afterward recalled the guilty Impulse which forced her to sit on the
telltale note while the men were carry-
lug her nlong ln the driveway. When
It was quite safe she slyly opened the
missive. His hund closed over hers
and the note, nud he bent close once
"My only fear is that the test will
make It impossible for me to kiss your
hand again," said he ln a strained
voice.   She looked up iu surprise.
"Then It is really something disloyal?"
"I have called It a test, your highness," he respouded enigmatically.
"Well, we'll see," she suld and forthwith turned her eyes to the ell important paper. A quick flash crossed her
brow; her eyes blinked hopelessly. The
note was written iu thc Graustark language!
"I'll read It later, Baldos. This is no
place for me to be reading notes, don't
you kuow; really, it Isn't. I'll give It
back to you tomorrow," she was ln
baste to say.

"It seems excellent."
"And I never saw such a miserable

"It is quite legible, your highness."
"I really cannot read the stuff. You
know his handwriting. Read It to me.
I'll trust you to read It carefully."
"This Is embarrassing, your highness,
but I obey, of course, if yon command.
Here Is what Ravone says:
"We have fresh proof that she Is not ths
princess, but the American girl. Be exceedingly careful that she does not lead
you Into any admissions. The Americans
are tricky. Have little to Bay to her and

Every Feb. 11 Is celebrated In Japan
the great annua, festival of Klgeuset-

Ghosts   Explained.
Telepathy, ghosts, and other occult
phenomena were explained on a natural basis by Dr. Bernard Hollander
at the London Lyceum Club recently.
it is by brain energy, whether electrical or not we do not know, said
the lecturer, that men acquire influence over others. That such energy
exists has been proved by experiments
on hypnotized persons, who in a perfectly darkened room can see a glow
it the finger-points of the hypnotizer;
and metallic objects rubbed by' the
latter acquire a luminosity strong
-mough to make their surroundings
Supposing a person to be the victim
of foul play, his mind-energy will be
exerted to the utmost, and is projected with such a force that it will cling
to the room or place In which he lost
his life. If, then, some person ol a
sensitive nature, and not prn-oc-
eupiid, pass through that room, his
brain may receive such a stimulus as
to produce some more or less defined
image, which will appear real to him,
and the vision of a "ghost" will be
the result.
The same theory, said Dr. Hollander, makes it possible that sensitive
<nbj��cts when in the hypnotic state,
and holding an object belonging to
the dead or the living, or being in a
room once inhabited by them, rray
havo visions of and be able to de
-icribe them

A   Farmer's   Gateful   Testimony
No case of eczema, skin disease, t.r
ulceration, should be despaired of until Zam-Buk lias bee.i applied. The
case of Mr. Francis Penoit of St.
Anne's (Man.), is a powerful illustration of Zam-buk's efficacy. He says:
���*I suffered from eczema for two years,
and tried a great number of remedies.
None of them, however, seemed to do
me any good. The ailment was mostly
iu my legs, and both these wore
actually raw from the knees down. A
small sample box of Zam-Buk was
given to me, and even so small a
quantity as that did nie a little good.
1 then obtained a proper supply, and
by the time 1 had used a few boxes I
was   completely  cured."
Zam-Buk differs from ordinary
salves and embrocations in contain-
big no animal oil or fat. It is compounded from rich, healing, herbal
essences, and is an ideal natural combination of power and purity. Il la
highly* antiseptic, and instantly kills
bacilli and disease germs, which settling on to wounds and skin diseases
set up festering, blood poison, etc.
For cuts, burns, bruises, ulcers,

His    Majesty    Is    Getting    Rest    and
Quiet   Enjoyment.
A correspondent writes: I am told
by one who has just returned from Biarritz that King Edward is keeping
much more to himself than on his
former visit. The fact is that though
he looks very well, he has been overstrained by his recent arduous labors
and now is taking a "quiet recuperation."
Of course, it is no secret that the
King doe8 not possess what insurance
offices term "eood life." In view of
the uncertainty of all human existence and the King's prolonged absence abroad the contingency of the
sudden demise of the Crown, I am informed, has recently been under consideration in order that so lamentable
and improbable an event should not
find the authorities unprepared.
His Majesty is not far from the allotted age of man, and his sojourns
abroad are indispensable to the efficient discharge of his onerous duties.
Some feeling has been aroused on the
subject of the King's absence while
Parliament is sitting, but nobody who
knows the facts can fail to admit
that His Majesty owes it to himself
and to the nation to omit no precaution which his medical advisers declare necessary for the preservation
of his health.
But there is no denying that the
King preserves wonderfully high spirits. The other evening at dinner with
Princess Prederika of Hanover the
King narrated a couple of stories about
Mr. Haldane, the Minister of War:
"I notice," said he, "that when any
of my present Ministers have something particularly democratic to bring
forward they always propose to ask
my advice. When' Mr. Haldane came
with a pat phrase to usher in his army
scheme, I replied:
" 'Of course, I am sure you have
anticipated my opinion on the yerjr
point; now let me hear all about it.'
The other tale concerns the Kaiser.
His Teutonic Majesty, with bland imperturbability, Invited the English
Secretary of War to inspect the manoeuvres or whatever he pleased,
whereas if the average Brtisher approaches a fort it becomes a job for the
British   Kmbassy.
The Kaiser had been talking with
candid affability and openness, which
would have rendered any one suspicious except a sound forensic brain.
Finally the German War Lord remarked :
"You will be going in for army reform yourself soon, I suppose. The
next time you are at Windsor ask my
uncle to find you a scheme I prepared one wet morning for my grandmother. It was too good ever to be
adopted. I am glad that your country has never heard of it, for once
it were embraced England's supremacy
woald be unshakable.   I made it."
In the guttural Germanic tones of
King Edward this must have sounded
delightfully quaint.
Ask your doctojr to name some of the

How Congo Natives Get Rid of Their
/   Agsd Relatives.
Major Powell-Cotton has just returned from a remarkable journey in
Central Africa, after a two years' sojourn among the savages of the Dark
Continent. A romantic interest is to
be found in the fact that Major Powell-Cotton, who had intended on the
conclusion of his expedition to return
to England to get married, decided not
to interrupt his journey, and accordingly arranged for his fiancee to get
out to Africa. The marriage took place
on her arrival at Nairobi, British East
Africa, in 1905, and afterwards Mrs.
Powell-Cotton shared her husband's
hardships and dangers, having, among
other things lived for many months
among the pytrmiea in the heart of the
Ituri Forest. She was the first white
woman ever seen by these people.
The authorities made concessions
never before given to a foreigner in
the way of hunting in the reserves,
and giving permission to kill a limited number of rare animals. Speaking
of his hunting experiences, Major
Powell-Cotton afid:���"Bands of elephant and buffalo roamed the twilight
solitudes at will. In all my travels I
never saw so many elephant and buffalo tracks together. Frequently, a3
we warily cut our way through the
tropical growth in single file, the huge
beasts crashed through the undergrowth on either side of us, and the
experience, especially at night, was
necessary particularly trying to an

Tbe explorer relates a curious story
of how the natives in the neighborhood of Wadelai dispose of the old
folk when they become a burden. As
soon as the infirmities of age manifest
themselves, the old people are given
a soothing draught, and wrapped in
a fresh antelope skin. Thus attired,
they are carried by members of their
family to a spot some distance from
the village, and are abandoned in the
grass close to a native track. The first
native coming by sees what he thinks
is an antelope, and spears it, whereupon the victim's family emerge from
their hiding place, and express horror
and surprise at the unfortunate incident.
Short Kings.
There is hardly a king in Christendom whose wife does not overtop him
by a head.
King Edward is quite six inches
shorter than Queen Alexandra.
The Czar, a little man, is overtopped

Kaiser Wilhelm is of medium
height, but the German Empress is
tall, and that is why the proud Kaiser
will never consent to be photographed beside his wife unless she sits
while he stands.
The King of Italy, short and squat,
hardly comes ap to the shoulders of
tbe tall, athletic Queen Helena.
The King of Portugal, though fatter, is less tall than his Queen.
Even the Prince of Wales is shorter a good four inches than the Princess.
And the young King of Spain is several inches shorter than his Queen.

Often a Sign of Arrested Development
Instead of Strength.
Parents often tlilnk that tlreir son Is
especially promising because be wants
to get to work young, wants to leave
school antl tie earning. 1'bis Is never a
sign of Strength, but always of weakness. When a boy wants to get to
work Instead of getting ready to work
It Indicates urn*sted development.
Tbere Is not one probability In fifty
that a boy who desires to leave school
at the sixth grude and Is allowed to do
so will ever amount to anything. It Is
not tbe fact that be does not bave as
much education as the other boys, but
that he does not have their purpose to
get ready for the doing of things.
Teachers often greatly err In dealing
with such boys and their parents by
trying to show bow Important It is
that they should know what tbey will
learn In the seventh and eighth grades,
whereas thnt Is the least part of It. It
Is a case of arrested development usually, and this !s what should be treated, treated ns n d I sense.
We make n lot of talk about defective sight anil hearing, and we do well,
but It Is vastly more Important that
we "get busy" in defective mental progressive development. There Is a nearsightedness of parents and pupils that
Is criminal. It contributes to delinquency and. as I think, Is within the
status of and subject to court punishment.
It sometimes shows Itself In diverted
attention, In dissipated Interest and
often In orcrntbletie or fraternity zeal.
The college theory Is that the fraternity chaps are the elect, but life does
not show that. The data are imperfect
at present, but there Is enough to make
tt wholly probable that when the tig
ures are ln It will be clearly shown
thnt In the last fifteen years when fraternity life has been extra social and
extra political In elannlshness much of
the fraternity zeal Indicates approaching arrested development. It Is entirely clear already that this Is characteristic of the high school fraternity,
because It almost Invariably means
that a set of fellows dare not trust
themselves to win honors In the open
contest, but seek It as a favoritism by
means of a little band of social highwaymen, as many of these high school
fraternities are.

"Home" In Our Language.
In no other language, according to
the London Telegraph, is there a word
expressing the Ideas and associations
which are aroused at the sound of the
simple yet heart touching word "home."
A Frenchman once translated Cardinal
Newman's hymn, "Lend, Kindly Light,"
and In bis hands the beautiful line
"The night Is dark, and 1 am far from
home," became "La nult est sombre, et
je suls loin de mon foyer," the translator having been obliged to use for
home the French word which describes
the green room of a theater. The Italian and Spanish "casa," the German
"haus"���their "helm" Is too general to
hove any particular value���and the
Russian "doma" all refer to a building
of some kind or other and have none of
the memories and associations that

Skirt Braid Put on In Fifteen Minutes
by   This   Plan.
You can put a skirt braid on In fif
tee��j minutes by this plan. Mark the
line where your skirt Is to be turned
either by basting thread or use the Hue
of chalk already marked If you have
measured It by u skirt gauge. Put the
bottom of your skirt Into the mnchkie,
right side of goods up, before crossing
the hem.
Lay the braid along on the part that
is to be turned under, letting one edge
always touch the marked line. Stitch
It on the other edge, which you can do
simply by holding It as you sew and
without basting or pinning. When thc
hem is turned up the braid Is ln place
and stitched at the top edge.
If liked better to be fastened at both
edges stitch twice, once near tho
marked line.
A little more Intricate is sewing
braid on in a roll. Get a bit of goods
and braid and mark the turning line
with a pencil for a sample, as it will
save the time needed to work it out
later on to hare both tho sample and
directions pinned to a blank page hi
your sewing book. Lay the braid along
the marked line just opposite from the
way you did before. It will Ho up on
the skirt this time instead of down.
Stitch it along the marked line, slipping It down just a hairbreadth, so
that your stitching will come just below the pasting thread. When stitched
turn the brnld down, but not the cloth.
You will have to baste It this time, as
pressing It over would make It fiat in
stead of In a "roll." Stitch It again at
the bottom edge, and when the hem of
the drtKs Is turned up it leaves the roil
at the bottom.

A Small Pill, but Powerful.���They
that judge of the powers of a pill by
its size would consider Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills to be lacking.. It is a
little wonder among pills. What it
lacks in size it makes up in potency.
The remedies which it carries are put
up in these small doses, because they
are so powerful that only small doseu
are required. The full strength of the
extracts is ecured in this fohn and
do their work thoroughly.
And Da Not Let the Past Spoil the
Oaya That Are to Coma.
There Is nothing more depressing
than dwelling upon lost opportunities
or a misspent life. Wb'itever your
past has been, forget it If It throws
a shadow upon tha present or causes
melancholy or despondency, there Is
nothing ln It which helps you, there
is not a single reason why you should
retain it In your memory, and there
are a thousand reasons why you should
bury It.
The future's your uncut block of
marble.    Beware  how you smite It
, Don't touch It without a programme.
! Don't strike a blow with your chisel
without a model, lest you ruin and
mar forever the angel which lives
within the block. But the past marble,
which you have carved Into hideous
Images which have warped and twisted the Ideals of your youth and caused
you Infinite pain, need not ruin or mar
the uncut block before you. This Is
one of the merciful provisions that
every day present to every human being, no matter how unfortunate his
post, a new uncut bloek of pure marble, so that every day every human being has a new chance to retrieve the
past, to Improve upon It If he will.
Nothing Is more foolish, more positively wicked, than to drag the skeletons of the past, the hideous Images,
the foolish deeds, tbe unfortunate experiences of the past Into today's work
to mar and spoil It There are plenty
of people who have been failures up
to the present moment who could do
wonders ln the future If they could
only forget the past and start anew.���
Tha Chatty Traveler Who Charmed
Ralph Waldo Emerson.
It Is related that Ralph Waldo Emerson was once on his way to California when he was Joined by a man who
was altogether so sociable and chatty
that an otherwise tedious journey was
rendered quite cheerful. This man's
name was Sackett, and he told Mr.
Emerson that he resided ln San Francisco. Mr. Sackett indicated all the
points of Interest along tbe way, related a lot of amusing anecdotes and,
best of all, was also an attentive listener. The consequence was that Mr.
Emerson came to the conclusion thnt
Mr. Sackett was as charming a mau
as he had ever met, and It was In this
positive conviction that he accepted
Mr. Sackett's Invitation to dine with
him Immediately upon their arrival in
San Francisco. The next morning Mr.
Emerson was astonished and annoyed
to find ln all the local papers this
startling personal notice: "Professor
Ralph Waldo Emerson, the eminent
philosopher, scholar and poet, Is ln our
city as the guest of J. Sackett, the
well known proprietor of the Bush
Street Dime museum. Matinees every
half hour. Admission only 10 cents.

Helping an Invalid.
A. trained nurse mentions as among
the little things that help make an Invalid feel comfortable and rested the
frequent brushing of tbe hair and bathing of the hands and face. "1 don't
know what It Is, whether these actions
just divert the Invalid's mind or really
do effect some physical change for the
better, but they certainly help the sick
one to get through the day. Eau de
cologne and the various toilet waters
���re very refreshing when added to the
water or used Independently. I once
heard a man say that if he couldn't
both wash his hands and face and
comb his hair In the morning when he
got up he would choose to comb bis
hair. It would wake bim up better.
He felt something of the same sense
of physical comfort as the average
convalescent or invalid."
Thomas Carlyle, "the sage of Chelsea," died without winning much per
sonal popularity, a fact, however,
which Is forgotten In admiration of his
genius. Carlyle exerted a greater Influence on British literature during the
middle of the nineteenth century and
on the religions and political beliefs
of his time than possibly any other
British writer. He never wrote a line
that be did no*, believe, and ln regard
to style he certainly had no superior.

Not a Nauseating Pill���The excipi-

enfolds the ingredients and makes up

Vegetable Pills is so compounded as
to preserve their moisture, and they
may be carried into any latitude
without impairing their strength.
Many pills, in order to keep them
from adhering, are rolled in powders,
which prove nauseating to the taste.

The Osculatory Process Denounced
by  Scientists as   Extremely
Dangerous���How the Danger Can be Removed.
A keen discussion is being carried
en by some of the best scientists as to
the danger and "crime" of kissing, led
by Dr. Somers, Health Officer of Atlantic City, and Dr. Nalpasse, of the
Medical Faculty of Paris. They charp-e
tha kiss with spreading grippe, scarlet
fever, measles, mumps, whooping
oough, typhoid fever, diphtheria, erysipelas, meningitis, tuberouloais, and
many infectious skin diseases. They
suggest legislation on the subjeot, and
tha posting of notices in railway stations, street cars and other publio
Elaces, but they say it would be uae-
iss to post them on verandahs, in
cosy corners, porches, shady nooks,
er moonlit lawns. They also propose
oempulsory legislation for methods of
diainfeotion of tha mouth -and purifying the breath, especially with a view
to the protection of the innocent babies
who are particularly subject to infection. The greatest and most effective
