Urue Christmas
Spirit.
By   Church   MissiOHEB  Baynes,
of New Denver.
��� ���'.*������-���.;
It is but the expression of a platitude
to say that Christinas should be a season
of joy and gladness. But there can he
no real Christinas joy unless we get
away from ourselves at this season.
If Christmas teaches us any lesson, it
is that of unselfishness, the lesson of
personal interest in the welfare anil hap
piness of others. Any other conception
of the clay is foreign to the teachings of
Him whose birth wo celebrate at the
joyous Cluistmastide ; of Him who gave
to the world it* greatest lesson of loving
sc'f saerilioe, whose glad message of
" Peace on earth and good-will to all
men" forms the keynote of Christmas
festivities In nil lands.
Bee to it, then, that this Christmas is
in very truth a seapon of joy and happiness, 11 it to ourselves merely, but to
others.
Begin with yourself and recolve to be
"^Constantly happy, o'liew will catch the
injection, for notli ng in more contagious
then happiness.
Many are absent from home and loved
ones, and those who can, do not let fancied business cares prevent your joining
once more with father and mother
around lhe family fireside. The re-cementing of family ties, the renewing of
friendships, is one of the greatest privileges of the Yulet'de season.
���. .Christinas, loo, is a good time to forget past differences *, to wipe out old
scores. Herd not the sacrifice 'of personal dignity that may be cntaibd; you
will he the happier and belter for forgiving, and being forgiven. While a
majority ol British Columbia homes have
been blessed with prosperity throughout
the year tliat is almost pasBed, there
��i!l yet remain in every community
those to "whom Christmas will have few
joys, because of tion-snc es*, or may be
,of sore nlJhYtion. None need our syin-
hg{C)\y more at this season than the widow
and the oiphan, the poor, the friend-
lc-s, the sick and needy. There may be
children loo, whose little hearts will
yearn in v-dii for tha possession of ju*t
one toy; who-c only Yul. tide happin'S",
if we forget them, will be to view the
Christmas displays in the shop windows.
It is little short of a tragedy ihat any
e.irld (mould awake io a giftless Christ-
m s. Let us do o*ir licst to consider our
less f irtunalo brethren that they may
participate, in our joy and happinesa of
the season ; therein will our o.tu happi-
ness be the gteater and our lives the
better.
Remembering tho words of our Blessed Master: " Inasmuch as ye have done
i* unto one of the lea t of these my
Ir thren, ye have done it unto Mo."

Primitive mining operations may be
witnessed here and there within sound
of modern mining machinery, but it remained for Tom Beyolds, a former Gilpin country miner to operate with a
broom. Reynolds recently obtained a
lease in the first level of the Wild Horse
mine of the United Gold Mines Co. on
Bull Hill in the Cripple Creek district,
and it is making good for him, He is
receiving returns of 25 Ounces to the ton
on ore obtained by picking and sweeping
tlie sides of a rich stope which has not
been worked for several months. Using
a broom and pick he has about 5 tons
of ore sacked ready for shipment.

Those who went to witness the performance by the Smith Pastime Co. in
the expectation of seeing a bum show
were agreeably fooled. Owing to poor
advertising arrangements) tlie public
were not there in such numbers ss the
show deserved, but the sparse audience
were given a rial treat in vaudeville and
the applause was unstinting. "The
Black Patti " lias a voice of exceeding
sweetness and much power, and her
numbers were heartily applauded. The
songs and dances by the children were
particularly smart, and the, costumes
were elegant, As a comedian Mr. J. F.
Smith was there with the goods, while
as a dancer, Harry Earl is perhaps the
best ever seen in Sandon. Its too bad
that a really good show should play to
such a thin house, but the punk outlitB
which occasionally come and go are
mainly responsible for the apathy of
theatre goers. The company appeared
In New Denver on Tuesday.
The hearts of the children will bo
made glad tomorrow (Friday). The
Christm as Tree! What a train of waking  memories  it    arouses.   The good,
soopin'her up, but supposing the mis-us old fashioned Christmas tree, rcsplen
asked you to sweep tho house out, dent wilh lights and tinsel, its branches
now wouldn't I here be a "roarin' "game ( bent down  with the weight of presents
" He gave   his only begotten son."
The world stands upon the threshold of
that season of the year when the thought
of Christendom instinctively tnrns to the
most gladsome day in the annals of recorded time���the birthday of the Saviour
of the world.
We may not be able without finite
understandings to comprehend the
)v iglit and depth of the greit plan
which came forth from thf mind of the
Infinite and which comprehended the
redempthn of the entire human race,
but we find in tho Inspired Word this
passage of unmistakable import, " For
(iod so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten son, that whosoever
belleveth on Ilim should not perish but
have evei lasting life."
In those words we find an epitome of
the divine plan. The motive and the
reason arc both set forth, and while wc
may maivcl over what was comprehended in that plan, we accept it as a
great truth and know that tbe merging
of the world from darkness into light
dates from the hour when the Star of
Bethlehem Dashed across the Judean
sky.
Jesus Christ was therefore God's
first Christmas gift to a sad and weary
world. No wonder that Heaven's joy
hells rang I No wonder that the gates
of Paradise aeomed to open while angels
looked down upon the scene.
In that hour wns bom the spirtt ol
cheer, peace on earth and good will toward men which has never died out
during all the centuries which have
pa-sed. There have been times when its
splendor has seemed dimnn d, and
"when men appeared to forget the sentiments of that first Christmas message,
but on Christmas day iteelf, few there
nre who do not count it a privilege to
journey in imaginstion with the wise
men of the east, to that humble cradle
in the manger which tbe Christ-child
made holy with his presence.

That game between rinks skipped by
the president and vice-president was a
dandy. After tieing in the ooinpetition
proper and then tieing again in il
play-off, the president is to be congratulated on his ultimate victory. There is
some talk of disqualification owing to
tho winner practising out of season with
schooners and cuspi.lors.

A man in Whitewater is being urged

father of thirteen children. He did
something much more wonderful than
all of these. He found a nieo pearl-

ore is an artist in her own particular
line. In the programof fourteen numbers there was sufficient variety to snp-

The recent action on the part of a
western mining camp in adopting rules
declaring against Sunday labor, leminds
us of a still more recent action just
taken in France on the same subject.
It appears that in the coal mining regions of that republic there has been no
recognition of a day of cessation from
labor, for many years. The matter has
just been the subject of legislation
which provides for one days rest in seven
in all of the mines. Henceforth a day
of rest will be enforced in French coal
mines whether the human machines
care for it or not.
Safe to say that oneo'the system is in
force it will not be discarded again.
No greater error can be made by, mining companies than to make men work
incessantly day in and day out; dulling
tlie sensibilities and narrowing the interest in daily affairs ; sacrificing intelligence to brute strength and placing a
a premium on physical accomplishment.
The lesson would seem too old to have
een missed by anyone who keeps in
touch with the trend of human opinion,
but occasions arise which show the
necessity of repeating an already old
story.
We have previously expressed onr
opinion on that extreme view of the
Sunday labor matter which takes the
stand that all operations should be
suspended on that day. The idea is
not practical in any sense. The point
which reallv should be made, and
which is too often missed by well mean-
ini* individuals, is that the laborer
should have his one day in seven, but
not that all operations should be stopped
on a certain day. In certain branches
of the mining industry it is possible to
have a cessation of labor on a certain
day, and where this is feasible it is well
to conform to the general custom. On
the other hand theie are many opera-
lions, particularly of a metallurgical
nature, that cannot be neglected for
twenty four hours, anil here it would
be as great folly to insist on a certain
day of rest as it would to fail to insist
that each laborer take someday in (.even
for re'ease from toil. Tlie point is well
known by large companies and anyone
can satiufy himself that it is the rule
that most laborers have their day for
rest and recreation at the end of six of
labor.
Conditions such as existed in the
French coal camps, however, cannot in
any way bo condoned. Now that the
old system has given way to one of
greater enlightenment, we believe that
general social conditions among tho-e
miners will improve markeJly.���Mining

EAR off in the mount.**in lands,
somewhere to the east of the
setting sun, lies the principality of Graustark, serene relic of
rare old feudal days. The traveler
reaches the little domain after nn arduous, sometimes perilous; journey
from the great European capitals,
whether they be north or soulli or west
���never east. He crosses great rivers
and wide plains; he winds through fertile valleys and over barren plateaus;
he twists and turns and climbs among
somber gorges and rugged mountains;
be touches the cold clouds In one day
and the placid warmth of the valley in ���
the next. One does uot go to Graustark
for a pleasure jaunt. It is too far from
tlie rest of the world, and the ways are
often dangerous because of the strife
among the tribes of the Intervening
mountains. If one hungers for excitement nnd peril, he fiuds it in the journey from the north or the south Into
the land of the Grnustarklans. From
Vienna and other places almost directly west tho way Is not so full of thrills,
for the railroad skirts the darkest of
tbe danger lands.
"Once In the heart of Graustark, bow-
ever, the traveler is charmed into
dreams of peace and happiness and���
paradise. The peasants and the poets
slug iu oue voice and accord, their
psalm being of never ending love,
liown In the lowlands and up In the
hills the simple worker of the soil rejoices thnt he lives in Graustark; in the
towns and villages the humble merchant and his thrifty customer unite
to sing the song of pence* and coutent-
ment; iu the palaces of the noble tbe
same patriotism warms Its heart with
thoughts of Graustark, the ancient.
Prince and pauper strike hands for the
love of the land, while outside the
great, heartless world goes rumbling
ou without a thought of the rare little
principality among the eastern mountains.
In point of area Graustark is but n
mite In the great galaxy of nations.
Glancing over the map of the world,
one Is almost sure to miss the infinitesimal patch of green that murks its location. One could not be blamed if
he regarded tbe spot tis it typographical or topographical Illusion. Yet the
people of this quaint little land bold
In their hearts a lovo nnd a conlidence
that are not surpassed by aiiy of the
lordly monarchs who measure their
patriotism by miles and millions. The
Grnustarklans area sturdy, courageous
race. From the faraway century wheu
they fought themselves clem* of the
Tartar yoke to this very hour they
have been warriors of might and valor.
The boundaries of their tiny doiuaiu
were kept inviolate lor hundreds of
years, and but ono victorious foe had
come down to lay siege to Fdehvelss,
the capital. Axpliiiln, tt powerful principality In the north, had conquered
Graustark In the latter part of the
nineteenth century, but only after a
bitter war In which starvation nud
famine proved far more destructive
limn tbe arms of tho victors. The
treaty of peace nnd the Indemnity thnt
l'eil to the lot of vanquished Graustark
have been discoursed upon nt length
Ik at lenst one history.
T!:ose who have followed thnt history must know, of course, that the
reigning princess, Yetive, wns married
to a youug American at the very tag
end of the nineteenth century. This
admirable couple met In quite romantic
fashion while the young sovereign was
traveling Incognito through the United
States of America. The American, u
splendid fellow named Lorry, was so
persistent In the subsequent attack
upon her heart that nil nncestrnl prejudices were swept away, aud she became his bride with the full consent of
her entranced subjects. The manner
In which he wooed nnd won tills young
nud adorable ruler forms a very attractive chapter in romance, although
iiumeutloned in history. This being
the tale of another day, It Is not timely
to dwell upon the interesting events
which led up to the marriage of tlie
Princess Yetive to Grenfall Lorry. Suf-
llee It to say that Lorry won his bride
ugaiust nil wishes und odds nnd nt
the snme time won an endless love and
esteem from the people of the little
kingdom among the eastern hills. Two
yenrs hnve passed since that notable
wedding In Edelweiss.
Lorry nud Ids wife, the princess,
made their home lu Washington, but
spent n few months of each year In
Edelweiss. During the periods spout
In Washington and In travel ber affairs
In Graustark were in tlie hands of a
capable*, austere old diplomat, her
uncle, Count Caspar Halfbnt. Princess
Volga reigned ns regent over the principality of Axphaln. To the south lny
the principality of Dawsbergen, ruled
by young Prince Iianlnn, whose half
brother, the deposed Prince Gabriel,
bad been for two years a prisoner in
Grnnstnrk, the convicted assassin of
Prince Lorenn of Axphaln, one time
suitor for the hand of Yetive.
It wns nfter lhe second visit of the
Lorrys lo Edelweiss thai n serious turn
nf affairs presented itself. Gabriel lind
succeeded in escaping from his dungeon. Il's friends in I lawshergen
slired up a revolution, and lmiitnn was
driven from the throne nt Serros. On
the arrival of Gabriel at the capital
the army of Dawsbergen espoused the
cause of the prince It had spurned, and,
three dnys after his escape, he wns on
his throne, defying Yetive and offering
a price for the bend of the Unfortunate
Dsntun, now n fugitive In the hills
along the Grnnstnrk frontier.
CHAPTER II.
MAJOR GEORGE CALHOUN wns
a member of congress from one
of   the   southern  states.     His
forefathers had represented the
���mine commonwealth, and so.  It  wns
likely, would his descendants, if there
Is virtue in the litness of things and
lhe heredity of love. While intrepid
frontiersmen were opening the trails
through tbe fertile wilds west of the
Alleghanles a strong branch of the Calhoun family followed close iu their
footsteps. The major's great-grandfather saw the glories and the possibilities of the new territory. He struck:
boldly forward from the old Revolutionary grounds, abandoning tbe luxuries and traditions of the Carolina.* for
a fresh, wild life of promise. His sons
and daughters became solid stones in
the foundation of a commonwealth,
and his grandchildren are still at work
on the structure. State and national
legislatures had known the Calhouns
from the beginning. Battlefields had
tested their valor, and drawing rooms
bad proved their gentility.
Major Calhoun lind fought with
Stonewall Jackson and won his spurs,
und ut the same time the heart and
bund of Betty Hnswell, the stanchest
Confederate who ever made flags,
bandages and prayers for tbe boys lu
gray. When tbe reconstruction came
he went to congress, and later on became prominent in the United States
consular service, for years holding an
Important European post. Congress
claimed bim once more iu the early
nineties, aud there he Is nt this very
time.
Everybody In Washington's social
and diplomatic circles admired the
beautiful Beverly Calhoun. According
to his own loving term of identification, she was tlie major's "youngest."
The fair southerner had seen two seasons in the nation's capital. Cupid,
standing directly In front of her, had
shot his darts ruthlessly and reslst-
lessly luto tbe passlug hosts, and mas-
e'lllne Washington looked humbly to
Ijr for tbe balm that might soothe its
pains. The wily god of love was fair
enough to protect the girl whom he
forced to be his unwilling, perhaps unconscious, ally. He held his Impenetrable shield between her heart and
the assaults of a whole army of suitors, high and low, great and small. It
was not idle rumor that said she had
declined a coronet or two, that the
millions of more than one American
Midas had been offered to her and that
she had dealt gently but firmly with a
score of hearts which bad nothing but
love, ambition and poverty to support
them in the conflict.
The Calhouns lived in a handsome
home not far from the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. Grenfall Lorry. It seemed
but natural that the two beautiful
young women should become constant
and loyal friends. Women as lovely
as tbey have no reason to be Jealous.
It Is ouly the woman who does not feel
secure of her personal charms that
cultivates envy. At the home of Grau-
stark's princess Beverly met the dukes
and barons from the far east. It was
In the warmth of the Calhoun hospitality that Yetive formed her dearest love
for tbe American people.
Miss Beverly was neither tall nor
short. She was of that divine and Indefinite height known as medium; slender, but perfectly molded; strong, but
graceful���an absolutely healthy young
person, whose beauty knew well how
to take care of Itself. Being quite
heart whole and fancy free, she slept
well, nte well and enjoyed every minute of life. In her blood ran the ws-tt.
eager impulses of the south; hereditary
love of ease and luxury displayed itself
in every emotion; the perfectly normal
demand upon men's admiration was as
characteristic In her as it Is in any
daughter of the land whose women
are born to expect chivalry and homage.
A couple of years In a New York
"finishing school" for young ladles had
served greatly to modify Miss Calhoun's colloquial charms. Many of her
delightful "wny down south" phrases
and mannerisms were blighted by the
cold, lini'omnntlc atmosphere of a seminary conducted by two ladles from
Boston who were too old to marry, to*
penurious to love nnd too prim to think
that other women might, care to At
both. There were times, however���if
she were excited or enthusiastic���when
pretty Beverly so far forgot her training ns to break forth with n very attractive "yo' all," "suab 'nougb" or "g��
'long nuow." Ami when the bands
played "Dixie" she was not afraid te
stand up and wave her handkerchief.
The northerner who happened to be
with her ou such occasions usually
found himself doing likewise before he
could escape the infection.
Miss Calhoun's fnce was one that
painters coveted deep down in their
artistic souls. It never knew a dull ln-
itant; there was expression In every
lineament, In every look; life, genuine
life, dwelt in the mobile countenance
that turned the bead of every man and
woman who looked upon it. Her hair
was dark brown and abundant; her
eyes were u deep gray and looked
eagerly from between long lushes of
black; her lips Were red aud ever
willing to smile or turn plaintive as occasion required; her brow wns broad
and fair, and her frown was as dangerous as a smile.
As to her age, If the major admitted,
somewhat Indiscreetly, thnt all his children were old enough to vote, her
mother, with the reluctance born iu
women, confessed that sbe was paBt
twenty, so a year or two either way
will determine Miss Beverly's ago so
far ns the telling of this story is concerned. Her oldest brother, Keith Calhoun (tho one"with the congressional
heritage), thought she wns too young
to marry, while her second brother,
Dan, held that she soon would be too
old to attract men with matrimonial
Intentions. Lucy, the ouly sister, having been happily wedded for ten yenrs,
ndvlSOd her not to think of mnrrlage
uutll she wns old enough to know her
own mind...
Toward the close of one of the most
brilliant seasons the capital bad ever
known, less than a fortnight before
congress was to adjourn, the wife of
Grenfall Lorry received the news
which spread gloomy disappointment
over the entire social realm. A dozen
receptions, teas and balls were destined to lose their richest attraction,
and hostesses were in despair. The
princess had been called to Graustark.
Beverly Calhoun was miserably unhappy. She had heard the story of Gn-
briel's escape and the consequent probability of ti conflict with Axphaln. It
did not require a great stretch of Imagination to convince her Ihat tbe Lorrys
were hurrying off to scenes of Intrigue,
strife and bloodshed, and that not ouly
Graustark, but its princess, was In
jeopardy.
Miss Calhoun's most cherished hopes
faded wilh the announcement that
trouble, not pleasure, called Yetive to
Edelweiss. It hud been their plnn that
Beverly should spend the delightful
summer months In Graustark, a guest
at Iho royal palace. The originul arrangements of the Lorrys were hopelessly disturbed by the late news from
Count Hall'ont. They were obliged to
leave Washington two months earlier
than they intended, aud they could not
take Beverly Calhoun Into danger ridden Graustark. The contemplated visit
to St. Petersburg and other pleasures
had to be abandoned, aud they were lu
tears.
Y'etlve's maids were packing the
trunks, and Lorry's servants were In
a wild state of haste preparing for the
departure on Saturday's ship. On Friday afternoou Beverly was naturally
where she could do the most good aud
be of the least help���at tbe Lorrys'.
Self confessedly she delayed the
preparations. Respectful maidservants
and respectful manservants came often to the princess' boudoir to ask
questions, and Beverly just its frequently made tearful resolutions to
leave the household In pence���if such
a hullabaloo could be called peace.
Callers came by tlie dozen, but Yetive
would see no oue. Letters, telegrams
and telephone calls almost swamped
her secretary; the footman aud the
butler fairly gasped under the strain
of excitement. Through it all the two
friends sat despondent and alone lu
the drear room thut once had been the
abode of pure delight. Grenfall Lorry
was off lu town closing up all mutters
of business that could be dispatched at
ouce. The princess and her industrious retinue were to take tlie evening
express for New York, and tho next
dav would find them at sea.

EPIGRAMS OF ENGLAND.
Or. Emil Reich Says Chamberlain Is
England's Greatest Man.
Society, beautifully begowned, rubbed shoulders with a crowd of students at the Regent street Polytechnic
recently, when Dr. Emil Reich delivered
the first of a series of lectures on the
History of Imperialism, taking as his
first subject, "Is Great Britain the Heir
of Ancient Homo, of Qreeco, or of
Both?*'
The Hungarian philosopher kept the
largest audience he has had this year
extremely interested. Some of his
pregnant epigrams were:
The question has 'been frequently
asked, whether history repeats Itself.
The answer Is that history does not,
but historians do.
Had you not had such a neighbor as
the French to fight you would have
remained puny.
The Romans excelled In one thing,
Roman law is like Greek wit; it Is
finished, it is complete, it is perfect.
It settles things in no time.
When law In England becomes so
complicated that no Judge can decide
it,  they have recourse to Roman law.
The Romans did not believe In
boards. Boards are useless. Committees are farces. The world is not
nin by virtue, by character, *by money,
or by value, but by authority.
If a man has no auth irity he Is nowhere.
The Premier Is the uncrowned King
of England pro tent.
The Americans are all foreigners.
The Liberals are fond of peace with
honor, the Greek principle. The Tories
are fond of grabbing, the Roman principle.
Strauss and modern German music
are a misfortune.
In English music you prefer the
pauses.
A very prosperous nation is unmusical.
The man who has no office and no
health, Mr. Chamberlain, ia the greatest man in this country, one way or
another.
The party system is the soul of empire, and as long as England can produce personalities It may do foolish
things, but that will not matter.
In brief, Dr. Reieh proved that
'^reat Britain Is more Roman than
Greek.

Darwin relates that the Gauchos of
the American pampas live for months
ou the fat meat of the oxen they watch
over. The Eskimos cua get along very
well by eating from five pounds to six
pounds a duy of reindeer o? seal's flesh
so long as It Is uot too lean, but contains a due proportion of fat. Says the
author of "Diet and ."Metetlcs:" "Some
men obliged to live a very fatiguing
life, the trappers and hunters of the
pampas of America and Siberian
steppes, the Inhabitants of very cold
climates, the fishermen living on the
banks of the frozen sea, can eat almost exclusively without . suffering
from It enormous quantities nf ..neat or
fisn, but on two conditions ��� that the
meat be accompanied by Its fat and
that the individual subjected to this

Proposal  to Stir  Up  Emotions by the
Aid  of Chemicals.
It as the cynics tell us, we are los-1
Ing our capacity for emotion, the modern druggist can give us back all the
outward signs of love, grief, anxiety,
despair and exaltation, neatly compressed into tablets and capsule", at
so much per dozen.
This was abundantly clear at the
Medical Exhibition, which opened at
the Horticultural Hall, London, recently.
Information gleaned from the mass of
eelentflc "drugdata" In 'The Extra
Pharmacopoeia," a new work, makes It
clear that a love-scene of the following nature is quite possible In the near
future:
Romeo's Emotion.
The blase wooer, fearing lest he
should betray his boredom and lack of
emotion In the course of his avownl.
provides himseif with portable chemical
preparations which will give him a Ro-
meo-JIke gamut  of emotion.
In the doorstep of his ladylove's
house he drinks a concentrated solution of glucose, and all appetite leaves
him on the spot. Ho also rubs his
face with hydrogenperoxlde from a
email -phial, and before he has fairly
got his overcoat off he has developed a
most Interesting pallor. During dinner tie sends away untasted course after course without a pang tthanks to
the glucose). He also sna.ps a glas-
capsule of chloroform In hla serviette
before the ladles retire, and inhalation
produces most lifelike sighs
Chloroform Sighs.
Later he lures the object of his
chemical affections to tlie conservatory,
and something like this happens:
After a few minutes of chloroform
sighs, he may venture on any amylm-
trite blush (glass capsule broken in
handkerchief and inhaled).
"Miss X.," he exclaims���"may I say
Kthel?" (At this point It is as well lo
swallow a few nitro-glyeerlne chocolate tablets���strength, 1.100th of a grain.
The palpitation produced is quite audible and highly recommended.)
��� "You must have long realized," he
continues, "how deeply I admire you."
(Chloroform sighs.) "Dare I liope thai
my presence is not altogether unpleas-
Ing to you?" If the lady appears unmoved, a small capsule of the essential
oil of mustard should be snapped In the
handkerchief. It will cause a perfect
flood of tears when Inhaled.
Lover Takes Dose.
Weeping copiously, the up-to-date
swali: continues: "My love for you has
driven sleep from my eyes. (Caffeine.)
Set my doubts ami fears at rest. Will
you be mine?"
The lover's next dose depends upon
the lady's reply. If It is In the affirmative one or two pills of mnira-piiamu
compound will produce a fitting feeling
of exaltation, or If it is in the negative
an inhalation of a capsule of ethyl-
chloride will produce total unconsciousness and an artistic swoon.
The chief drawback to this form of
love-making is that the presence on the
spot of a medical man Is highly desirable, lest the unskilled self-admlnis-
tratlon of these drugs should result
fatally.

British Judge Laments Glaring Untruthfulness  In Court.
The British people are said to be
the most litigious on earth. Judge Edge
declared at the Clerkenwell County
Court that in their litigation they are
"glaringly" untruthful.
"When giving his decision in a case,
Judge Edge said that it disclosed a
"distressing amount of perjury," and
he then proceeded to call attention to
the necessity for an act of Parliament,
to "check the glaring perjury that
now goes on In the law courts."
"Perjury," he said, "is growing more
and more common. It la one of the
saddest features In the English life of
to-day. People go Into the witness-
box and take the oath, knowing at the
some time that they are going to make
a statement which is altogether the
opposite of the truth. They do this
knowing there is little chance of being
punished, and they lie with a coolness
and deliberation which are enough to
stagger one.
"Recommendations have been made
by the judges, but Parliament���I do not
refer to the present one more than to
any other���seems to think that It Is
better to let perjury go unpunished rather than risk the chance of an acquittal by a jury.
"How long perjury will *be allowed to
go on unchecked I do not know," concluded Judge Edge.
A Kemarkahle Curiosity.
There Is lu Connaughl. Ireland, a remarkable curiosity, which gives au example of official 'oversight. When the
great famine of IS47 was upon tbe land
tlie government of the duy conceived
the idea of opeulng a line of navigation from Oahvay to Balllna by way of
Lough Corrlb and Lough Mask, so as
to avoid the dangers of the western
coast. Krom Cong a canal was actually made to Lough Mask as part of the
general scheme. Tbe work gave a
great deal of employment, anil so far
the canal served its purpose. But when
It was completed it was found the
canal would uot hold water. Tbe fact
that the dock of tbe district Is of a very
porous character bad been overlooked.

If everybody in England had to learn
to use his *hands it would be a good
day both for the England of the present and for the England of the future."
When he was a boy he learned to knit
stockings and made shirts, and nowadays he finds his manual labor amidst
the fields, hoeing his turnips and gathering his hay. He does not abhor the
use of tobacco, and recently advised the
Y. M. C. A. to allow smoking on Its
premises.
Sore Teeth and Sore Eyes.
A Scotch surgeon recently called attention to the connection between an
uncared for mouth with carious teeth
and a form of eye disease. He describes three cases, in each of which
the teeth were in very toad condition.
The gums were soft and spongy, bleeding easily, while tiny drops of pus could
be pressed out from their margins. The
breath had a sour smell and the com
plexlon was of a muddy, sallow tint.
In caring for these cases the first step
was to purify the mouth and put the
teeth Into good condition. Such procedure, together with suitable tonics and
local eye treatment, brought about a
perfect  recovery.

The First Teacup*.
Even after tea was Introduced Into
Europe and had come Into general use
teacups were scarce. At the same time
coffee was introduced, hut apart from
Constantinople the first coffee cups In
Europe date back only as far as 1645
In Venice, 1059 lu Paris, 1052 lu Lou-
Jon and 1094 In Lelpslc. From the
Jrst, however, the conventional oriental coffee cup, without stem or handle,
tvns little used, and In Germany not
���t all. The Chinese teacup was used
for tea, coffee and chocolate as well.
Specimens of porcelain were undoubtedly Introduced into Europe In the middle ages, yet not till the sixteenth century were cups imported from Chiiin
In any great quantities, and even then
It was as articles of vertu. Most of
these found their way back to China
again, as collecting porcelain Is a lasting fad there, and high prices are paid
for good specimens. Tho collection of

How This Fierce Brute KilTs and Car
ries Off Its Prey.
I have taken considerable trouble
to find nut how ligevs kill large same,
writes an assistant comptroller of forests at Perah. Rome lime ago I was
asked to roir.e anil see a lull grown
bullock that bad been killed by a tiger.
On examining il 1 found the animal
had its neck broken, antl there were
claw marks on the nose and shoulder
and nowhere else. There was no doubt
that the tiger had jumped at the hull
and landed on the shoulder, and when
the bull turned his head to gore the
tiger he must have put his claw out
und with a sudden jerk broken tha
neck.
On another occasion I went to see
a young buffalo which had been killed
by a tiger and found the same thing
had happened. There were similar
marks on the nose and also on the
near shoulder, which clearly indicated
that this animal had been killed in the
same way. .Malays who have actually
seen a tiger killing a buffalo told me
they saw the same thing happen; also
that In dragging off a heavy carcass,
such as buffalo or bnll.'he gets most of
the weight across his shoulder.
This must be fairly correct, as I have
often followed a kill, and Ihe marks
left indicated that only a portion of
the animal was trailing along the
ground. I have known a full grown bull
which ten men would not move dragged two miles by a tiger in u heavy
Jungle, where roots of trees and
swamp had to be gone through. In no
case have I seen the pug marks facing
the wrong way except when stopping
to feed, which proves he must carry
a portion of the animal over his shoulder.
The old idea of a tiger killing Iarg��
game by a blow from his paw Is nonsense. Besides, In this country a tiger
never faces his prey, but attacks him
on the Hank, unless charged. Another
curious fact that may seem very like
a fairy tale is Ihat a tiger does not
seem to mind a small lamb being tied
over a kill about ten feet high, but will
come and feed. I have known three occasions when this has been tried, and
each time a tiger has come to feed
upon the carcass.���London Field.
Copper  Kills   Noxious  Germs.
Copper Is a marvelous preventive nf
disease. If we returned to the old
copper drinking vessels of our forefathers, typhoid epidemics would d>*
appear, writes a filtration expert.
Examine a copper cent under the
microscope und you will lind it altogether free from disease germs. Examine gold and silver coins aud you
will Und them one wriggling and con-
tortlng genu mass. Yet copper coins
pass through dirtier hands thau gold
and silver ones. You'd think they'd
be alive with micro organisms. But no.
Qjjpper kills germs. Diphtheria and
cholera cultures smeared on a copper
cent die In less than two hours.
The workers in Ihe Revere copper
works during the last epidemic of cholera in Massachusetts were Immune,
though friends and relatives fell on all
sides of them. Why were they Immune? The copper, with its strange
power over disease germs, protected
them.
Water alive with cholera and typhoid
germs has been placed for an experiment in copper vessels, and after standing seven hours this water has been
found safe to drink���every germ dead.
AVe should return to copper drinking
vessels. Furthermore, canteens for the
use of soldiers and sailors in the tropics, where cholera abounds, should be
lined with copper, and thus many a
young man's life would be saved.
Copper In the form of copper sulphate will kill olf typhoid germs In reservoirs and great bodies of water. It
ban frequently done so without harm-'
ing the diinking qualities of the water
In any way.

Was Paid $1,000 a Word.
At the Franklin Inn, a literary club
of Philadelphia, a young poet, licking
his lips, said that Conan Doyle was
paid $1 a word.
"That is nothing," said a railroad advertising man. "I know of a case
where a man was paid $1,000 a word.
Our line used to have "at its grade
crossings a very long and complicated
sign that began, 'Beware of the Engine
and Cars,' and then this sign went on
with a lot of Injunctions and warnings
that would have taken five minutes to
read. -��
"In a number of accident cases the
claimants for damages declared that
our long signs were not clear warnings. Therefore the line decided at last
to get a new grade crossing sign, and
Judge Paxson was engaged to write
one.
"The sign that Judge Paxson wrote
cost $1,000 a word, but it was a classic.
It remains a classic. It has been copied
everywhere. It is as well known
among us as 'Father, I cannot tell a
He,' or 'England expects every man to
do his duty.'
"The sign that cost $1,000 a word, or
$6,000 in all, was tho famous 'Railroad
Crossing���Stop, Look and Listen.' "
The Word "Humble."
"Humble" is a word that has gone
out of fashion during the lifetime of
many of us. An Australian paper that
Is reproducing extracts from its files
of fifty years ago prints this advertisement of 18f.ti: "Young woman wauls
home in an humble family." Nobody
sees an advertisement of that sort In
the paper's nowadays except In
tho weekly journals of the Irish rural
districts, where such announcements
as "Wauled, an humble girl," still occasionally appear.

Peculiar  Accident    to   sn    Engi-ieer.
i    Edward Spencer, chief engineer   ol
I the  S.S.  "Glide."  of  Montreal,    was
| working  around  his  engine  when   a
' hot bolt flew out and burned his arm
i terribly'.    It was ns if a red-hot spit
| had been thrust into it! A supply of
I Zam-Buk balm was speedily obtained
and Jirst aid  rendered.    The famous
herbal balm alleviated the pain, and
to the surprise of Spencer and nil his
friends,    at   the  end of  a   week     the
wound was completely healed. This is
only one of several cases reported recently in which Zam-Buk has    been
proved  a wonderful healer of burns,
cuts, bruises, and    abrasions.    It    is
equally effective for ulcers, sores, poisoning, no matter how long these have
persisted.      Mrs.  W.  H.  Taylor,    of
North  liny, Out., says:    "I    had    a
scaly spot about as big as a ten-cent
piece on my face.    1  had it for four
years, and hardly a night during Unit
time went by but whnt I applied cold
cream or some ointment or other, bill
it'would always In*    there,    and  the
wanner the weather the worse it got.
I  recently applied Zam-Buk, ami  in
about a week's time the spot had disappeared completely."
One of the world's greatest analysts biivs the healing power of Zom-
Buk is due lo the rare herbal essences of which it is entirely composed. Kur rheumatism and sciatica it
is also a speedy cure. Its healing
influence on the' skin is unequalled,
and it is so pure that the delicate
skin of babes benefits from its application. It cures rashes and eruptions
-���' well as more, serious ailments, etc.
Indeed, as a household balm it is
working wonderful cures all over the
Dominion. Druggists and stores sell
it at fiftv cents ii box. A sample will
be sent 'by the Zatn-P.uk Co., Toronto, to all our readers who mail this

Quebec'! Tercentenary.

a recent Issue, ;.oints out the significance of lhe event und urges ample
preparation. "It Is not too early," says
The Chronicle, "to formulate a distinct
scheme of action, to divide It up Into
its proper sections and subdivisions,
and to commence the collection of articles and records of historic value, to
form a nucleus for a Canadian museum; and li Is'certainly not too early
to calculate on the crowds which will
bo drawn here by the event, and to
make provision for their housing." Winnipeg anil Quebec will no} hy that time
bo connected by the new Transcontinental Railway, but they are connected
closely enough even now to ena,ble
them lo work together, so that these
two events, which so prcfoundly affected the history "f this continent, may
be celebrated In a way commensurate
with their national significance.
Christmas  Giving
A great many people think thai because they are not nble to give Christinas gifts, because they cannot give
money or what it will buy, they can
give nothing. How little we realize
that the b.-st thing anybody can evei
give in this world is not money, but
himself. _
I know a lady who is very poor.
She has no money to give to the poor
at Christinas, lint she goes around
for days before Christmas, visiting
every person she hears of being sick
or crippled or unfortunate, everyone
who has any trouble, whether she
knows him or nut. And she gives out
such a wealth of love, of sympathy,
if encouragement, good cheer, and
sunshine, that these people feel enriched for a whole year. The material
tilings they receive are cold and unsympathetic in comparison with what
this poor woman gives them. On the
other bund, 1 know a man, wealthy
but selfish, whose conscience begins
to trouble him just before Christmas', and he sends out checks, coal,
clothing, provisions to the poor peo-
ple. Then he feels a sort of relief j
lie hns eased his conscience, which
prodded him. Hut he rarely, if ever,
goes to see these poor people,- never
gives them anything of himself, his
encouragement, or good cheer.
This spirit of Christmas is the
Christ spirit, the helpful spirit. It is
the giving of what Christ gave, He
hud no money to give,���He was the
poorest of the poor,���but did ever any
Croesus have so much to give ? Did
any millionaire ever radiate so much
power and hope In the discouraged,
so much good cheer to the disheartened, or so much comfort 1o the sick
and the sorrowing?--O. S. Maiden, in

British Veteran Choir Singer Who Took
Part  In the  First  Performance  of
Mendelssohn's "Elijah.''
There is singing In the Birmingham
Festival Chorus this year a chorister
-who took part in the first performance of Mendelssohn's "Elijah." when
the great composer himself conducted
tile worlt, at the Blrmrngham Festival
of 1S46.
William Potintney, of the St. Cyprian's Choir, Hay Mills, Birmingham,
was a youth of 18 at that time. Coming of a gifted musical family, he had
earned lhe right lo he Included in the
festival choir, anil he has taken part In
every festival choir savp one since that
time. When you speak to him he tells
5-ou tha' he still has the remnant of a
voice, but lhe writer has often heard
him sound his .bottom D in ch .Ir work
during the last Iwo years, and he can
sing a ballad wilh the lone and vigor
of a youth. When Mr. Pountney had
his voice tested for this year's festival
he told the examiner his age, and wis
met with the remark, "Well, you may
be nearly eighty, but your volee is only
forty."
Mr. Pountney has vivid recollections
of the rehearsals for the first perfonn-
ance of the "Elijah." The band and
chorus, he says, were on a small scale.
The band consisted of 125 performers,
mostly from London, and the chorus
of 2S3 voices, som.' nf which were sup
plied by Ihe metropolis. The rehearsals for the festival of 1846 took place
In a Hi Lie chapel in King .s��reet which
stood upon the site of what Is now
New slreet station. The then town
organist, Mr. James Stimpson. was
the choirmaster, and he received the
parts in manuscript, a few being sent
at a time. fir: the Monday previous
to Wednesday, Aug. 26, on which the
work was formally given to the world,
Mendelssohn came to Birmingham and
rehearsed the work most carefully
with the chorus in the Town Hall.
Describing the enthusiasm of Mendelssohn's reception when he advanced
to Ihe conductor's deslt, Mr. Pountney
says: 'It was tremendous; overpowering. His method of conducting was
very pleasing, li was simple and unaffected, and when he had to make a
cnrrectl m his face wore a most queer
expression. He would rattle his baton
against the desk and say pleasantly,
'That won't do. gentlemen; I must have
piano here; when you get a fortissimo
you can do as you like.'
"I well remember Mendelssohn and
SLiudigi coining into ihe ommittee-
room of the Town Hall, and as the latter, who had been specially brought
by the composer to create the bass
part, look off his peculiar stove-pipe
top hat, a while collection ot papers
fluttered down upon the floor. Everyone laughed, and the composer seemed
in particular to enjoy the incident."
Mr. Pountney can recall the principals of ihe l8l(i performance quite well.
Staudlgl made a wonderful Impression. Mr. Pountney says that he cannot recall any festival singer creating
more enthusiasm.
"He was the first anil he Is the
greatest representative of 'Elijah' 1
have ever heard. His singing of the
prologue, 'As Ood lhe Lord of Israel
Livetl:,' created a sensation at the
full rehearsal such as I have never
witnessed since." And yet Mr. Pountney understands that .Staudlgl sang the
music at this rehearsal at sight.
The tenor was a young English
singer, Mr. Lookey. It was originally
intended that he should only render
the silos in lhe first part, but Mendelssohn was so pleased with his singing that he asked him to give the
whole of the tenor solos. In a letter
to his brother Mendelssohn paid marked testimony to Mr. I.ockey's sweetness of singing. It was, says Mr.
Pountney, a re.marka.ble performance.
Mr. Pountney recalls many notable
"Elijahs." In 1852, under Sir Michael
Costa, Weiss sang the music, and In
1882 a wonderful singer was cast for
the part ��� Heir Carl Formes. Mr
Sanlley made his first appearance in
1861, and sang uninterruptedly till 1891,
when Mr. Andrew Black took his place.
A notable prophet was Slgnor Foil,
who first appeared In 1878.
| Shetland Wool,
I A curious historical legend Is connected with Shetland wool. Over ?M
years ago a man-of-war belonging to
the Spanish armada was wrecked ou
one of the islands. The sailors who
escaped taught the unlives to make
brilliant dyes from roots which they
found, resembling those used for like
purposes In Spain. Those persons who
now wear bright Shetland knit "comforters" are unconsciously wearing mementos of the "invincible" armada.

CURED HIS WIFE

Quebec Man tells how the Great Con
sumptive Preventative was

" Mv wife took I.a Grippe when she was
in Ottawa,"says R. X. Daibe ofNorthfield
Farm, Que., iii an interview. "She got a
bottle ol" Psychine and after using it for a
fe-w dayu she was quite well. I took a cold
and am using it and am getting all right.
I think Psychine is one of the best tonics
on the market to-day."
There you have tlie whole matter in *
nutshell. I.a Grippe and colds are among
the forerunners of consumption.
This mau had oue, his wife had the other.
Psychine not only cured both but it built
them up so that their bodies are strong
enough to resist disease. All seeds ol
