Heard  Between Meals.
The editor of this column is not responsible for any statements made in it
ns he cannot vouch for the veracity of
���any statement. He is just giving it to
the public for what it is worth. Had he
-worked at meal times he might be more
certain of these rumors, hut nothing will
induce him to work his jaw in any way
at meal times except to masticate food.
That " Timothy Eaton" has removed
the store that the Kootenaian representative saw here on Lsbor Day, to Kaslo,
Tho manager soon found out that WE
would stand for no pipe dreams here.
That Messrs. P. W. Johnstone and P.
W. Ward have unofficially registered a

The old one is good enough for them.
But wby? Borne people like a two s'ep,

That Billy Bennett is going to have a

.editor of thla column has begun fasting
That we are going to have no winter.
The cause is easily ascertained. The
���Sandon Social Club will make it too
warm to notice any winter.
That Jay Jay is wearing stage diamonds. He is the stage-manager for the
.one act farce "Turn Him Out." S**v-
ieral attempts have heen made to steal
{them, but without success. This proves
that Bill Miner is not in Sandon.

That Ihe account of the new style of
���dancing aa represented in lust week's
Review has a number of adherents already, and that several young ladies are
locked in their rooms by irate mothers.
When asked why they do it, they invariably answer that there is something
about it that's nice.
Ihat" Mike," the office dog, sets the
type whenever we make a mistake in
grammar or spelling. We know how to
���pell. _
That tho school children were on

notice that they have moved the old

Can that have been the cause ?
That Geo. E. McCready, K. A S.
station agent, no longer makes midnight
trips to Slocan City. Did she jilt him,
or is he afraid of someone holding him

ia a great walker.
That all the pianos in Sandon need
tuning. Where is chief Lawson ? Why
not make him do it ?
That the streets ol Sandon are going

That the editor of this column insists

knows nothing about it.
That the Sandon Social Club is the
only club of its kind in existence. There
is no fee for membership and every
Sandonite can become a member whether married or not.
That a "whistle" is necessary for
Friday ovening and that Mr. McClurg
positively refuses to loan his. If that is
the kind of support to te given to the
Bandon Social Club, no wonder it makes
things difficult for the executive.
That F. S. Macdonald, the genial
C.P.R. station agent is shaving every
day again. His wife and baby have returned from a trip to Spokane and the
baby objects ti whiskers. It is either
shave or no kissing tlie baby.
That " Turn Him Out" ran 806 nights
iu New York, and that the original
company will he seen here Friday
night. Let us go and see if it ia true,
That the merchant who ia saving the
"hoary" eggs for Fiiday night is
known by the executive uf the Sandon
Social club, and that . he persists iu

them all in the form ot an omelet Bhould
he dare to show his face inside the door.
That we will aocepl ti ior 11 subscription even on Friday ntgbt. Do not

That President Roosevelt remarked
that he wiihe I Sandon wero in the
V-siited Stalea. We are in doubt as to
tlie cause, (an it mean McGillivray

threatening tlie town.
������That" meat " is getting stale and the
" Kaslo cows " are on strike. If man-
agor Power, of tho Kootenaian, tells
another cow that we Sandonites come
in on the rake-off, we will pull his wool
for him. Wo object to the statement:
" Keep thy gentle hovines in." It can
only have one meaning to our minds. It
insinuates that wc Sandonites milk the
cows on lho Bly.
That Dr. Petersky was seen eating a
large apple tbo other day. He was

Our new contributor, whose spasms
appear immediately preceding this under the caption of " Heard Between
Meals," ia a huinoiist of the first water,
but the reader will have perceived that.
But the writer lulls into the common
habit of amateur humorists when he
throws the harpoon into everybody w ho
think different to him. Now, take that
crack at Billy McClurg. One might
think that the ultimate success of the
new club depended solely on Billy loaning them hia whistl.. And then take the
poke at George McCready���that is a
chestnut wiih bug whiskers, and we
would suggest something original. Then
again, those Jay Jay squibs arc too
plentiful to be appreciated bv our
readers���not that we mind a good joke
at our expense, but because we object
to losing bo much lime trying to find out
the funny part and where to laugh.
And tlun, again, note the editorial
" we " dominating tlie whole. We object strenuously to that, but will let it
go this time. If he decides to contiuue
throwing fits each week he can adopt
any old pseudonym he chooses, but
there isn't room for two " we's " around
this joint. Then ho a'so makes a crack
anent our spoiling���we say our because
that ia the implied dig, but we can assure you, Mr. Contributor, as to grammar, like you we are perhaps not
stare at it, bat had we not hall-soled and
heeled your spelling and punctuation,
your " stuff" would have looked pretty
punk in print. So don't get too gay,
and, above all, d.m't get discouraged,
In conclusion we wish lo say WE will
do our own collecting Friday night if
there are any 2-spots flying around.
A. E. Watts, of Wattsburg, B.C., has
taken a stand in politics which only a
man with strong personnel could take,
and one in which he should have the
whole undivided sympathy and support
of honest electors throughout the
Dominion. In his zeal for purging the
elections ot bribery and corruption he
has issued a challenge to Sir Wilfrid
Lautier and tins members of hia government, individually and collectively, to
put up funds for the purpose of unseating any member, whether Liberal or
Conservative, who attains his seat hy
corrupt methods, and as a guarantee of
his intention to cleanse the foul blot on
Canada'B fair name, ho has offered a
reward ol $5,000 to any person wbo will
give information that will lend to the
conviciion and unseating of any member of parliament that may be elected
in the Kootenays by the aid of bribery or
corruption, whether he be of the Liberal, Conservative, or of any other
The forming of the " Town Improvement Society" at New Denver is a
step that will meet with the approval
of all who are interested in the growth
and future prosperity of that charming
town. The program of the new society
ia aggressiyo and comprehensive; aid
we hope much good will accrue. We
shall be pleased at all times to publish
the minutes or do anything that will
aa-ist in giving wider publicity to the
object iu view.
A Visit to The Reco Mine.
That the mines of this district are
l'able to have their tips and downs is
clearly exemplified by the Reco. This
property after being well up in the line
of dividend payers years ago was closed
down in February '00 with practically
no ore reserves, but in July last the
management considering the outlook
more favorable for exploitation, reopened the mine, and recent developments
have greatly exceeded Iheir expectations. The Reco mine has always
been famous owing to the high-grade
silver values contained in iis ores, and
to the great vai.ety of silver ores met
Two veins have been developed on the
property, tho Goodenuugh, which in
the past produced most ol the richest
ore, and tlie Roco vein. Both these
veins are being worked to hotter advantage lo day than ever before.
Through the kindness of Mr. J. M.
Harris wc made a trip to the mine and
were 8bown through the workings.
While very little could bo Been in the
few hours we had at our disposal and
still less described, the few notes we
collected may be ot interest to our
The general geological features of the
ground are extremely simple. So far
as we could see they consisted in a series
of upturned slates and ecbifts which
strike north-west and south-east. In
the slates are interbedded sheets or sills
of porphyrite with a similar strike.
Occasionally dykes of a basic igneouB
rock were met with which appeared to
be of later origin, aa they cut the strata.
The two ledges lie parallel about 500 feet
apart and cut the strata at ri_*ht angles
to their strike, i.e., in a north-easterly
direction. They dip to the south about
25 deg. The walla vary from three to
eight fact in width, and in the slates
and scbiils are well defined, but wheic
they cut the porphyry sills they are not
so. The ore atieak varies from one to
ten inches and will average about three
inches, and is remarkable for i's continuity and direction, the latt��r being parallel to the walla. The filling ia chiefly
carbonated or oxidised rock and appeai s
to he in greatest quantity where.the
walls are slate, and entirely absent where
the veins cut the porphyry sills. In the
latter case the ore is frozen into the
porphyry with an irregular junction
The varieties of ores found in those
veins are extremely numerous, The
primary constituents ol the ore streaks
are galena and blende in association
with arsenical or ruby silver, grey copper or antimoniul silver, stibnite with a
little iron pyrites, and spathic iron as
The secondary minerals, carbonate of
lead, cerrusile, Bulphateof lead, "angle-
Bite," tho latter mineral frequently contains sufficient free sulphur to burn
when lighted, producing natural candles
which have long made thiB mine famous.
Both these arise from the oxidation of
the galena; caibonate and sulphates of
zinc from the oxidation of the blende;
' chic and oxide of iron from the oxidation of the iron pyrites; a species of
magnetite fiom the oxidation of the
spathic iron; yellow, or arsenical stain
from the oxidation of ruby silvor;
orange and copper stains from the anti-
monial silver; native silvor and black
sulphides of silver from the oxidation
of silver-bearing minerals, and carbonated or oxidised rock arising through
tbe action of the acids produced during
the oxidation of the adjoining minerals.
In one stope of the Reco vein we saw
ten inches of clean galena, continuous
for over 30 feet, and further along this
was replaced by a peculiar mineral of
unknown name resembling grey copper
in its high ailver values, but containing
more antimony, leea copper, and more
lead than that mineral usually does.
This extended for fully twenty feel and
attained toward the centre the maximum width of 11 inches. This ore, we
wero Informed, averaged 1,100 ozs por
ton silver, which works out at about
.100 per sack. Notwithslnmlingnll this
great richness visible, one gets tlie idea
in following a streak averaging three
inches, and seeing thc ViiBt workings,
that this mine could hardly be a paying
proposition, oven if the ore is high
The manager speedily enlightened ua,
however, pointing out that what wc
termed carbonates or oxidised rock whs
a very valuable ore, carrying high silver
values, ao that instead of mining a
8-inch streak as we supposed from the
niineralogical point of view, there was
fully two feet of rich ore from tbe smelter point of view. Another point wo
noted was the general abience ot bodies
of zinc or concentrating ore in these
veins. The scarcity of zinc we cannot
account lor, the Reco mine proving a
lucky exception to the general rule in
thia respect. Concentrating ore there
is in a sense, but it carries high silver
values and admits of direct shipping to
the smelter.
On coming out of the mine we paid a
visit to the ore sheds. Hera to be of
much use tbe sorter must be assayer,
chemist, metallurgist, mineralogist
and geologist and have his eyes skinned
all the time looking for specks of the
ruby and the grey. Recollecting the
narrowness of the ore Btreaks and the
very varying nature of the ores, we weie
not surprised to see that ore sorting
consisted in separating thematoiial into two lots : " ore," thut which contain
80 or more ozs. silver per ton, and
"waste," that which contains less than
30 ozs. silver per ton. Under this>sys-
tem, shipments average about 40 p.c.
lead and 159 ozs. ailver.
In at temp'ing to classify these ore
bodies we are confronted wilh difficulties,
aa the evidence is by no means conclusive.
The management consider them as
true fissure veins cutting across the formation at about right angles, in which
case the carbonated or oxidised rock
found in the veins must necessarily be
vein matter produced during tho formation of the veins. The;fact, however,
that the lines of mineralisation lie exactly in tlie major planes of contraction of
the slate and schist rocks, i.e., at right
angles to the strata, might indicate that
the veins originated during Ihe uplifting
and folding of Ihe rocks and that the
walls, eo called, were parallel planes
which ex'st all through theEe
plate rocks, Under this view thft carbonated or oxidised rock must nave
originated through surface oxidation
aided by percolating waters and a'so
the carbonate and sulphate of lead and
zinc, oxides of iron, etc., found in tho
ore streak. This question will no doubt
be cleared up when deeper workings
arc developed. If the first idea is correct the carbonated rock will continue
in depth, while under "0ie second view
tliey will gradually diminish and finally
disappear. At the present time, considering only a depth* of 800 feet, it
would appear that the carbonated rock
did not diminish with depth.

New Denver Men Form Town
Improvement Society.
On the evening of the 8th ina^.,a
public meeting wa. held in tlie BoBiin
Hall, New Denver, to debate matters
for the welfare of tho town and district.
After an interesting discussion on tide-
walks, schools, stray cattle and horse*,
sanitarv affairs, prospective tourist business, trail building, land for ictiler?,
fruit growing and so on, an organization
was formed by the citizens, to he known
as "The Town Improvement Society."
Tlie following were elected as officers
and committee men: Chas. F. Nelson,
President; J. C. Harris, Vice-president;
Herbsrt Cue, Secy.-Tnas. Dr. J. E.
Brouse, \V. Tbomliiison, C. J. Campbell, and Thos. Rankin, Executive Committee.
Tne first work undertaken wiU be to
devise ways and means to improve the
condition and appearance of the town,
to build a trail to tlie Denver glacier,
and to join the ranchers and fruit growers of the other places in the district in
forming an association to advance their
interest8 generally.
"Turn Him Out" Will Draw
Crowd To-Morrow Night.
Those who miss attending the Grand
Entertainment in the Opera House on
Friday evening will lose witnessing one
of the best shows ever got up by local
talent. No pains have been spared bv
tlie dramatic section to make the program a thorough enjoyable one, and we
believe when the curtain falls nt the
finale that tbe audience to a unit will
agree that they have bad their money's
worth. W#o do not wish it to be thought
that we are suggesting that the performers in the concert and play are in the
same class as talented profes i mala, but
we do say tbey are above tho average
amatetus and a whole lot better thin
aome of the " pro's " we have aeen on
the same stage. But go and see for
yoursolf. The ona-ajt farce is funny
and ia really well put 0:1. Tbe caat litis
been well constructed, and ia far stronger than the stage management bad
hoped for. Tbe scene is lair] in Moke's
drawing room, and the limo ia the

of him ever since the night at the Inn
of the Hawk and Raven. Iu my Imagination I have tried to strip you of

it all. He knows that I care for him,
and I know that he cares for mo. Perhaps he haa told you."
"Yes, he has confessed that he loves
you, Miss Calhoun, and he laments the
fact that his love seems hopeless. Paul
wonders iu his heart if it would be

you have of wealth and pleasure to

"I love him. Isn't tbat enough?
There is uo wealth so great as that.

castle that night for Prince Dantan

prince expected to depart almost immediately thereafter to resume the
throne in Serros.
Baldos was wandering through the
park early in the morning. Ills duties
rested lightly upou his shoulders, hut
he was restless and dissatisfied. The
longing iu his heart urged him to turn
his eyes ever and anon toward the balcony and then to the obstinate looking

he said. She caught the ring of gladness iu his voice.
"Then I command you to shake hands

looked helplessly iuto the clear, gray,
earnest eyes. "I love you for wearing
that red feather," he said simply.
"And I loved you for wearing It,"
she answered, her voice soft and thrilling.    He caught his breath joyously.
"Beverly," ns he bent over her, "you
nre my very life, my"���
"Don't, Paul!" she whispered, drawing away, with an embarrassed glance
nbout the park. There were people to

who ruled his heart. Seeing the paiu
In his face, she hastily, even lilushing-
ly, said, "It is so public, dear."
IIo straightened himself with soldierly precision, but his voice trembled as
he tried to speak calmly In defiance to
his eyes. "There is the grotto���see! It
Is seclusion itself. Will you come with
me? I must tell you all that Is in my
heart.   It will burst If I do not."
Slowly they made their way to the
fairy grotto deep in the thicket of
trees. It was Yetive's favorite dreaming place. Dark nnd cool nnd musical
with the rippling of waters, It was an
Ideal retreat. She dropped upon the
rustic bench that stood against the
moss covered wall of bowlders. With
the gentle reserve of a man who reveres as well as loves, Baldos stood
above ber. IIo wailed, and she understood. How unliko most Impatient
lovers ho was!
"You may sit beside me," she said,
with n wistful smile of acknowledgment. As be filing himself Into the
scat his bund eagerly sought hers, his
courtly reserve gone lo the winds.
"Beverly, dearest one, you never can
know how much I lovo you," he whispered into her car. "It Is a deathless
love, unconquerable, unalterable. It is
In my blood to love forever. Listen to
me, dear ono. I come of a race whose
love is hot and enduring. My people
from time Immemorial have loved as
no other people have loved. They have
killed and slaughtered for the sake
of the glorious passion, Love Is the
religion of my people. You must, you
shall believe me when I say that I will
love you better than my soul so long
as Unit soul exists. I loved you tbe
day I met you. It has been worship
since that time."
His passion carried her resistlessly
away as the groat waves swoop tho
dock of a ship at sea. She was out In
tho ocean of lovo, far from all else
that was dour to her, fnr from all harbors save the mysterious one to which
his passion was piloting her through a
storm of emotion.
"I hnve longed so to hold you in my
arms, Beverly. Even wheu you were n
princess und I lay In the hospital at
Ganlook my fevered arms hungered
for you. There never has been a moment that my heart has not been reaching out In search of yours. You have
glorified me, dearest, by the promise
you made a week ago. I know that
you will not renounce that precious
pledge. It Is in your eyes now���the
eyes I shall worship to the end of eternity. Tell me, though, with your own
lips, your own voice, that you will be
my wife, mine to hold forever."
For answer she placed hor arms
obout his neck and buried her face
against his shoulder. There were tears
in her gray eyes and there was a sob
In her throat. He held her close to his
breust for an eternity, It seemed to
both, neither giving voice to the song
their hearts were singing. There was
no other world thnn the fairy grotto.
"Sweetheart, I am asking you to
mako a great sacrifice," he said at last,
his voice hoarse but tender. She looked up into his face serenely. "Cau

lips, shaking her head emphatically.
The picture he was painting was tho

future.   It all went smoothly and airily
until he asked her when he should go to
Washington to claim her as his wife.
She gave him a startled, puzzled look.
"To Washin'ton?" she murmured,
turning very cold and weak. "You���
you won't have to go to Washin'ton,

"My dear Beverly, I can afford the
trip," he laughed. "I am not an absolute pauper. Besides, It is right and
Just that your father should give you

She was nervous and uncertain.
"But���but, Paul, there are many
things to think of," she faltered.
"You mean that your father would
not consent?"
"Well���he���he might be unreasonable," she stammered. "And then there
are my brothers, Keith and Dan. They
are foolishly interested iu me. Dan
thinks no one Is good enough for me.
So does Keith. And father, too, for

"Don't distress yourself so much,
dearest," he said, with a laugh.
"Though I see your position clearly���

"We can go to Washin'ton just as
soon as we are married," she compromised. "Father has a great deal of influence over there. With his help be-
hiud you you will soon be a power in
the United"��� But his hearty laugh
checked her eager plotting. "It's nothing to laugh at, Paul," she said.
"I beg your pardon a thousand times.
I was thinking of the disappointment I
must give you now. I cannot live In
the United States���never. My home is
here. I am not born for the strife of
your land. They have soldiers euough

"Am I not to���to go back to Washin'ton?"  She tried to smile.

ask of him. Oh, Paul, Paul, I know
that my folks will think I'm nn awful

know thnt I intend to be a blissful one,

He kissed her time and again out
there in the dark, soft light of the fairy

I have a journey of some importance
to take," he announced as they arose
to leave the bower behind.
"A journey? Where?"
"To Vienna. I have an account to
settle with a man who has just taken
up his residence there." His hand
went to his sword hilt, and his dark
eyes gleamed with the fire she loved.
"Count Marlanx and I have postponed

and I shall bring It back to you myself."

me by a charming American daughter who, in a great European city,
had been visibly puzzled by the lapse
of locnl testimony to tlie fnct of her
natural  royalty.
She had arrived a few days before
in tlie eminent company of her father,
an artist of tlie highest distinction
and geniality, and, in the presence of
prompt invitations to luncheon and
to dinner, had been candidly surprised at their not being addressed
to herself. Ho had been Invited with
the hope that ho would bring bis unliable daughter; it was not she who
had been invited with tlie hope thnt
she would bring her celebrated sire.
She was beautiful and intelligent and
modest and good. She rose to the occasion, I hasten to add, and consented
to lay off for the time her crown, but
her question meanwhile had not been
the less illuminating. She could
shine in "Europe," but with a secondary light; it was she who was her
father's appendage, and not���ns I
gathered from her that tlie American
form would have represented the matter���her father who wns hers. She
could hope for no social existence
without him, while he, strange to
sny, might hope for any amount without her.���Harper's Bazar.

Naval Officers Invent Helmet to Avoid
Undar Water  Tragedies.
Crews of submarines have hitherto
andertaken their duty with the unpleasant consciousness that if disaster befell the vessel their chances
of escape wero slight in the extreme.
It is so no longer.
Commander S. S. Hall, of the submarine service, and Staff Surgeon Oswald ltees, of H.M.8. Mercury, have
invented an apparatus to enable the
<Tew of a submarine to escape from
their wrecked vessel. How the new
life-saver works was shown at a recent demonstration at the premises of
Messrs. Siebe, Gorman A Co., Limited, submarine engineers to the Admiralty, when tbe experiment wns
made of sending a man down about
fifteen feet of water in a tank and
seeing him rise saJely.
The guests were invited to imagine
At the outset thnt a submarine had
had a hole made in her, and was
filling with water. Three problems
f-xve to be solved. The first is to save
the crew from the effects of poisonous
gases generated liy the salt water gaining access to the electrical storage
batteries; the second, to save tlie crew
from drowning in the vessel; the
third, to enable the crew to get out
snd rise to the surface.
To meet these conditions a special
form of diving helmet hns been designed. The air in the apparatus can
be used over and over ngnin, the carbonic acid gas nf the respired air
b>ing absorbed by a special substance
culled oxylithe. which also restores
to tbo air the requisite amount of
onygen, and renders it ngnin fit for
breathing. When an accident occurs
the men in the submarine can each
put on tlie dress in half a minute.
Each is completely protected from
the poisonous gases which may be
generated in the boat; the chief of
these is chlorine.
In thc construction of a submarine
irrangement.. nre made enabling tha
crew to open the hatch of the conning
tower in all conditions, so as to try
and reach the surface. Once there,
the dress acts as a lifebuoy until tho
men are picked up. In any circumstances tliey are assured of living by
the aid of this dress for eighty minutes.
A satisfactory test of the appliance
can, of course, only be got in the unhappy event of an accident to a submarine vessel whose crew are equipped with it. At present the apparatus

Improvements at Windsor.
Among the many agreeable innovations introduced by King Edward at
Windsor Castle during the last twelve
months is tlie provision of a billiaid-
room and conversational annex,
which adjoin the library. As is generally known, the royalties always
breakfast and lunch in private, and
as a rule do not meet their guests
staying at the castle until the dinner
hour, unless they happen to send for
them specially. Formerly the men
guests, if the weather was fine, spent
the time between meals in visiting
the* grounds and the park, but if it
rained were practically compelled to
confine themselves to their bedrooms,
only visitors of royal rank being furnished with suites of apartments comprising sitting rooms. Even Cabinet
Ministers on duty at the castle were
compelled to do all .their writing in
their bedrooms. But now tlie men
can spend their time in the billiard-
room, in tlie most comfortable and
roomy species of conversational annex, or in the library perusing newspapers, dealing with their correspondence, and playing bridge. In fact, the
only thing lacking are some tape machines conveying the news of the day
in order to complete the impression
of the guests that they are at their
club in Pall Mall instead of under
the rooftree of King Edward at Wind-
Drastic Economy.

Colonial Railway revenue had decreased by ��000.000 and the revenue

U.S. Judge Impressed With Methods
In British Courts.
Justice Vernon M. Davis of the New
York Supreme Court, sitting on the
bench recently at the side of Mr. Justice Darling in the Central Criminal
Court, London, Eng., saw swift justice dealt to "Chicago May" Churchill and John Smith for the attempted!
murder of Edward Guerin of Devil's'
Island fame.
ABkod his opinion of such expedi-,
tious justice, he said: "I have been]
profoundly impressed by everything I,
have seen. The trial was conducted;
admirably, the cross-examinations,
were exceedingly fine, and the lawyers showed an excellent spirit."
"Do you think such a speedy trial
will ever ho possible in America?"
"Not under tho present circumstances. There are two principal eon-;
sidorations which militate against
such celerity. The first of these is in,
connection with the selection of ths;
jury. In this respect America is tlie
victim of her causes c?lebres. Every-,
one in America reads the newspapers,
���not one but many. When a sensa-.
tional case arises, like that of Nan
Patterson or Thaw, the papers deal'
with the -'hole matter in the minutest detail Ion. before the case is called. The result of this is that it iB almost impossible to get together twelve
intelligent mon who have not studied,
the ease and readied a judgment unfitting them for service as jurors. How
different here in England ' This casei
had all tho elements of sensation, yet
the jury wns solocted in exactly three
minutes. There may bnve been a
great crusli of the public to obtain
admittance, but I saw no evidence'
of it. I saw no sketch artists. In
fact I could not distinguish whether
any reporters were present. In my
opinion the only way to meet the
jury problem in the United States
is to permit tlie presiding Magistrate
to select the jury, with, of course,
tho advice of tlie counsel in the case."

and hurried into their graves before;

| The Old System of Drill Aloft to Ba
I Reinstated.
In  consequence  of  reports  having
been made lo the Admiralty of son-
men in some of His Majesty's ships
I having  refused to go aloft in rough
! weather,  it  has  been decided to  re-
1 instate the old "mast and sail" system   of   instruction   in   the   harbor
training ships.
This system was abolished about
seven years ago, and with is went the
old Cruiser Squadron, consisting of
fully-rigged steam ships, iu which
youths were sent to sea before being
passed out into the ships in the first
line. The sailing brigs Nautilus and
Liberty   *..oie   also  dismantled.
In the place of this system a new
one was introduced by which boys
were first sent to sea in the ships of
the Particular Service Squadron, consisting oi lirst-class armored cruisers.
Sail drill, running aloft and such
things were consigned to the limbo of
tho past, as having no place in an age
of steam iiiid steel.
The objections of many distinguished naval officers were overruled as
being obsolete. They said that driU
aloft trained the men in confidence
and dnring, and that its abolition
would result in a falling off in those
qualities in which the British bluejacket lias always been supreme. But
thc objectors were ridiculed.
Now the authorities have discovered
that the naval ollicers were right, and
tlie obsolete "mast and sail" driB ia
to be reinstated.

This is tlie most remarkable gunnery
whicli lias yet been recorded. It
surpasses the firing in the similar
gunlayers' test last year by the sister-
ship Drake, then flagship of Rear-
Admiral Prince Louis of Battenberg.
Then 1G7 rounds were fired from a
similar number of guns, and 14G hits
were recorded. This premier shooting ship in the navy is commanded
by Captain Cecil F. Thursby, and her
gunnery officer is Lieut, the Hon.
Arthur Stopford, son of Viscount
SUipford. and grandson of the Earl of
Passing  of  Scotland  Yard.
Old Scotland Yard, for nearly a
hundred years the headquarters o��
the London police, is about to disappear to mak way for the construction of a grand new thoroughfare extending from Wliitechapel to Northumberland avenue, and with it one
of thc most familiar landmarks of the
British metropolis���a landmark enjoying a world wide celebrity ��� wiil
vanish, says an English press correspondent. It owes its name to the
fact that its site was formerly occupied by a splendid palace, built for
the reception- of the Scottish mon-
archs when they visited London to
do homage to the kings of England
for their fiefs in Cumberland and
Westmorelnnd. The last of the Scotch
royal family to reside there was Margaret Queen of Scotland and sister
jf Henry VIII., who had her abode
there after she returned to England
on tlie death of her husband, King
James IV., of Scotland, killed in the
battle of Flodden Field. Henry VIII.
allowed the palace, after the death of
his sister, to fall into decay. In the
reign of Elizabeth it had become a
ruin, and after the union of the
Scotch and English crown it was dismantled. Thereupon it was converted into the site of certain Government offices and residences.
Milton lived there while acting as
Latin secretary to Oliver Cromwell,
and when the impending agony ol
blindness first began to threaten him.
There, too, lived Inigo Jones, Sir
Christopher Wren, the architect of St.
Paul's Cathedral, and Sir John Van-;
brugh, tlie designer of Blenheim. It,
was at the entrance to Scotland Yard
that, during tlie reign of James II.,
Lord Herbert, the poet, and himself!
the author of a poem the metre of
which was ndopted by Tennyson in|
his "In Memoriam," was waylaid,
from.motives of jealousy, attacked byj
hired ruffians, and severely wc<und-
edi and it was at the corner of Scot*,
land Yard that Josiah Wedgewood.
had, in tlie middle of the eighteenth'
contury, a showroom in which to ex-;
hibit his potto-j and porcelain. Not
until 1820, however, did Scotland!
Yard become the headquarters of thej
metropolitan police, on the formation
of the latter by the great Sir Robert!
Pool to supersede the co-called London "Charlies."

Said to  Be as Good as the  Best Lobster Ever Eaten.
Dogfish ought to be good to eat, as It
Is well known thai they feed on soles,
plaice aud flounders. The naturalist
hailing from tlie north Kent marshes
with whom I collaborated in various
books said that in his boyhood they
were much used by the fishing folk and
that they were excollent eating, a middle cutlet being considered by many
to be as good as tlie best lobster ever
eaten. As n boy ho never tired of hearing tlie fishermen's yarns nbout how
the great snvngo crentures snapped
and fought when they were captured.
Lying in the bottom of the boats, they
lashed about and bit at the men and
at each other. The larger ones would
fix on the men's sea boots as they
moved about or hang on to their oilskin Ashing coats like bulldogs. A
bite from one wus no Joke.
Dogfish abounded at certain seasons
In some parts of the fishing grounds-
other parts thoy avoided. Sometime
the men would go out only to catch
dogfish just to reduce their numbers n
little. They caught great numbers of
ttiora and sold them somewhere farther
down the coast, keeping- back Just a
few for themselves and their neighbors. You could get a monster for n
couple of shillings.
Couch, the naturalist, says he has
known 20,000 of the picked dogfish to
be ta':cn at one cast of the seine. Robert Chalmers quoted as follows from
the "journal" of Spalding, the town
clerk of Aberdeen: "1*342. From the
beginning of this year up to June there
wns a scarcity of whiteflsh along the
east coast to the hurt and hunger of
the poor and beggaring of the fishermen, ft was reported that when the
fishers had laid their lines and taken
fislies abundantly there cnme ono
benst ended tho sendog to thc lines nnd
nte nnd destroyed the hnill bodies and
left nothing on the lines but the bonds.
The like scarcity of fishes to continue
so long tins scarcely boon seen In Scotland, while all other meats were also
very dear."���rail Mall Gazette.
Universal   Soldering   Fluid
A soldering fluid    which    will not
rust or corrode tlie soldered parts is
made by dissolving as much zinc in
muriatic acid as tlie acid will take
up, and then adding water, glycerin,
and alcohol. To one part glycerine
add one part alcohol and one part
water; then add two parts of acid
with the zinc dissolved. This lluid
has been used for all kinds of soldering, says the Street Railway Journal,
and has been found especially desirable with greasy or dirty connections
as well us for soldering to iron. It
is claimed that the glycerine prevents
all rust, which plays havoc witli many
soldering fluids which contain muriatic acid.
j Suffer No More���There are thousands who live miserable lives because dyspepsia dulls the fnculties
and shadows existence witli the
cloud of depression. One way to dis-
pel the vapors that beset the victims

course of Parmelee's Vegetable Bills

pills known, being easy to take and

A trial of them will prove this.
i Two men were out, tho bases were

The umpire had called three balls
and  two strikes.
The excitement was intense, but
too deep for words, and when the
pitcher began to wind himself up
preparatory to delivering tlie ball'
tho  silonco  was  painful.
I It was broken by a loud, penetrating voice in the grand stand.

This   French   Fighter  Was   Gallant  as

The Marquis de l'Angle-Benumanoir
wns in his younger dnys fnmous as n
duelist. One evening, meeting his cousin, the Marquis du Hallays, in the
foyer of the Opera, he walked up to
him and ln tho course of conversation
"Isn't It odd, my dear fellow, that,
quarrelsome ns you nnd I are, we
should never have fought with one
"That's true," replied Du nallays,
"but that can always he remedied."
And on the strength o,f thnt the two
cousins met In mortal combat ou the
following morning, the encounter resulting in the Marquis de l'Angle-Benumanoir having his right hand pierced
by his adversary's rapier, which, while
It rendered n continunnce of the fight
Impossible, left tho other hnnd free to
grasp that of his cousin In undiminished friendship n moment afterward.
On another occasion when he was
about to fight a duel In which he was
entirely in the right and his adversary
In the wrong lie suddenly discovered
that his opponent was a perfect novice
In swordsmanship and that he would
therefore havo him completely af Ills
mercy. So he strode up to him and in
the presence of twenty or thirty per
sons presented tlie most courteous aud
full apology. Almost dumfounded, the
latter inquired why the marquis assumed such an extraordinary course.
"Because," he returned, "It would really be too unfortunate If I were to fight
with u mazette (greenhorn)." And witli
that he mado n low bow and then
turned his back upon him.

Titled Ladies in Business
lo the list of titled ladies who
nro devoting their time and energies
to the conducting of successful businesses must now he added the name
of Lady Algernon Gordon-Lennox,
who has hit on the idea of starting
a fruit-bottling industry. Her sister, Lndy Warwick, it may be remembered, made a splendid success
of her milliner's shop in Bond
street; while one of the daughters of
Lord Amherst of Hackney has dona
splendidly as a gardener. Perhaps
the most curious enterprise yet entered upon by a peeress is "Ihat of
Ellen, Countess of Desart, who has
started tobacco-growing in County
Kilkenny. In Ireland, too, is to be
found the successful violet farm run
by  Lady Aileen  Wyndlinm-Quin.
Kettles Made of Paper
It is stated thnt preparations are
being made to furnish the soldiers
of tlie German army with paper
kettles, whicli are a Japanese invention. Although the utensils are made
of pliable paper they hold water
readily. By pouring water into them
they can be hung over tlie fire without burning for a length of time sufficient to boil the water. One kettle
can be used about eight times, and
the cost is only one penny.

Rainbows That Can Change Sex.
I>�� many parts of the world It is thc
general belief that the rainbow has
tlie power to change sex. This queer
belief obtains in such widely separated
districts as South Africa and Norway
and China and Australia. The Zulus
have a long folklore story of the young
man who was changed into a wrinkled
old woman by touching the many hued
arch. The Scandinavian peasants have
a similar story, and in Greece tliey say
that anybody who runs against tlie cud
of the rainbow will have his or her sex
Instantly changed. In Franco and India to pass under the rainbow bas a
similar effect.
