When the morning of the 25th dawned,
the hearts of those directly icsponsihlc
for the Victoiia Day celebration went
down with a big thump. Leaden clouds
hustled across a murky sky, and a
drizzling rain, coupled with a tantalizing breeze, gave lho lake a dirty appearance. However, at 7-30 there was
just a possible chance uf the threatened
storm quietly receding, ami although
for several hours rain was a dominant
unrehearsed factor, il did nut seriously
mar the enjoyment of the morning, At
eight o'clock a royal sabito roared foitb,
and the sleepy ones were forcibly reminded that there was something doing.
An hour later the str. "Slocan," bearing a huge cargo of human freight from
Slocan City aud Silverlon, rounded the
corner of the peninsula, and tlio e on
shore could hear lhe strains of thej
"Maple Leaf for Ever" rendered by th*
Slocan Cily brass hand. The roar of
powder gave hearty erecting to the
crowd, and what a crowd there was.

and many were the glad tries of recognition.

"Nelson" on limit. The finish was
one of the best ever witnessed on the
lake, as all the craft were heading for

afforded a pleasing, and at the same
time a thrilling race, the winner turning up in Ed. Angl'Ignon'S "'Leader,"
which ju-t pipped Andy Wallace's
"Maple Lent" in Hie post for first place.
Shortly after the finish of tlie preceding event a copious shower of rain
drove the crowd to shelter, and several

The football match between New Denver and Slocan aroused' considerable
interest, both tenuis striving him! for
the mastery, which nt the closo was in
favor of Slocan, who returned winners
by two goali lo one. The victory wns
well deserved, as although New Denver
attacked most consistently, there was
little method In their attack, and many
chances went begging. Coupled with
this tliey were opposed to a resolute de-

broke up many a threatening movement.

round upon the crowded house, a very
smnll stretch of imagination would
have made him think he was back in
one of the theatres in the dear old
Just before the curtain rose tlio audience were treated to some very pleasant music by the Misses McDonald and
McDougald. Apropos of music, a little
more sprinkled between the acts would
have added to the pleasure of tbo
evening performance. The curtain
rose shun*** to time and the audience
settled down to enjoy themselves, Wc
might mention that lou.l whispering
during a performance is considered
rather bad foi in and not conducive to
helping out the artists.
Thu first of a very strong caste to
appear was Ml*. C. F. Nelson as "Tom
Cobb" Buffering Irom a very common
complaint amongst young practitioners
in a large city, viz.. a big brass plate
on tho door but no money to pay
for the paste to clean it. This young
gentleman has a very bad attack of
the blue*) and is just about to quit this
mortal coil, "by means of a little leael
pill," when his fiancee, Matilda O'Fipp
(Mrs. Harris) appears on the BCcne,
and dear Tom out of charity to the
ladies feelings, put away bis Gatllng.
After a little languid lovo making with
tha young lady, who bye tbe bye is
rather like nn article in an au:tion sale,
to be knocked down to the highest bidder, Papa appears on the sceno in tho

of a whip and the jingling of harness
announces that somebody with more
than a nickel is arriving on the srene,
und Biddy (Miss McDonald) announces
that Mi*. Whipple Esq. has arrived.
Tom does not seem to be overwhelmed
witb delight at the event of bis airivnl
but a few minutes later in confidence
to Whipple he tells him his money
troublos nn I lib, determination to take
a leap into eternity upon finding a painless method of getting there. Whipple
as tha jealous lover then unfolds the
following villainous plot lo get poor
Tom out of Ills way. An old miser
whom Whipple bus nicknamed ugly
old Tom Cobb died the previous night;
Whipple Certifies to his death; young
Tom Cobb is to disappear Ior several
months ami all his pressing creditors
thus fooled. Colonel O'Fipp then sees
n way to secure tho old miser's money,
as young Tom Cobb lias appointed him
(Col. O'Fipp) his executor, and so the
plot thickens. A month later when
Col. O'Fipp an i family aro enjoying
Hie fruits of their ill-gotten gains, young
Tom has the bad manners to suddenly
bob up and demand a square  deal, but
the dear old Colonel  with hold offront-
tery refuses to recognise In in and ludicrously laments his young friend's death.
There were many humorous situations
which were received with roars 3f laughter.   Tom Cobb "realizing that  he is lo
all intents and purposes dead, desires to
come to life  again,   but  under another

the scene four members of a very eccentric family, and it so happens that tbo
daughter Caroline (Mis. Kaukine) is in

who nevertheless has plightol ber his

third act opens with a very happy family gathering at till) Effingham   bom".
In keeping with the character of Major-
Gen.. Filzpatiick   Tom  Cobb assumes
the role of poet,   but bis  attempts at
metre and  rhyme cause great amusement.   It follows  that  the exposition

gets it in the neck nnd  Tom  holds the
winning card.   Tom   is  then  united to
Caroline, Matilda and Whipple go wilh

The writer was well aware that New
Denver was in no ways deficient in talent, having had the pleasure of attending one or two local social functions, but
he wns very agreeably surprised at tho
able  portraying of the characters ou
Monday evening.   As 'Tom Cobb" Mr.
C.   F.   Nelson   deserves  the   unstinted
praise we have heard on every side since
tlie performance, end receives our congratulations for handling  his  role with
such   signal   success.   Mrs.   Harris as
| ".Matilda O'Fipp" left nothing to be desired, and certainly fills  the bill of an
Irish giil as born to the role.   Mr, .1. J.
Atherton, as an irascible old colonel,  is
all there,  and cms d au  a| preeintive
audience many   a hearty laugh.    Mra,
Rankine  as   "Caroline Effingham"  is
summed up iu  tlie one  word, perlect,
and it is no wonder that Tom found her
irresistible.   Mr. Rankine as "Whiopie"
handled bis  part  with gieat  skill and
showed no   mean  ability   In changing
from Hie scheming friend   to  the lovesick  swain.     Mr. J.  0.  Harris "Mr.
Effingham," nn eccentric old gentleman
wns very good, to our way of thinking,
and gave a correct representation of lho
author's conception  of the  character.
Mis* Cue ns "Mrs. Effingham'' was beyond praise, and we are living ill hopes
of seeing her a-siinie a  title mlein tbo
near   future.   Lovers oi   dramatic  art
who   witnessed    the  portrayal   of  an
eccentric lady will agree with (bo writer
that it was clever,  original,  and  pleasing.     Mr.  F.  D. I). Kelly ("Bulstrode
Effingham,")    and   Mr.    Thomlinson
("Rnstus")   handled   their   respective
parts admirably.   Of Miss   MncDonnld
i's "Biddy"   there wns only one fault to
he found, and that waa, not seeing enough of  her.     Summing   lip,   a most
pleasurable evening was enjo. ed, and it
is to be hoped  that  the Dramatic  Society will not be, too  tardy   in niakihg
another appearance.
It would be very unfitting to let the
occasion pass without mentioning how
much the pleasures of the day were
added to by the inspiriting musical
program ire rendered by the Slocan
Brass Band in their picturesque uniform. Thanks are due to the members
of the band for the very pleasant
music with which they regaled the
crowds during the day.
The rock drilling contest at Kaslo on
Vlctiria Day was (he means of proving
beyond cavil the superiority of the
McGillivray and Erickson team over all
confrere?. For this competition three
teams were entered, but the championship team drove their steel 4% inches
further into the granite than their nearest opponents, and made a grand
lotal in lilteen minutes of i9)fi inches.
The winners of the 3eeoud money wero
Dunne and Johns, Sampler, Ore., Mackenzie and Johnson of Silverton coming
third wilh 41%. The winners received
a tremendous ovation. We understand
that the boys will follow the contests
throughout the continent this year, and
we cun safely rely upon I hem acquitting
themselves with credit. McDonald and
Isenor will ninke a special effort to win
out at Spokane, nnd will go into training
for this event only, as McDonald is nt

tbey were a well favored pair. She

successful at either. Any Frenchman
iwould have recognized his uniform as

Blue guard of Louis XIV. A trim,
dashing soldier be looked, with his
curling black hair and well poised
head. Sucb be bad proved himself before now ln tlie field, too, until tbe
name of Amory de Catinat bad become
conspicuous among tbe thousands of
the valiant lesser noblesse who had
(locked Into the service of tbe king.
They were first cousins, these two,
and there was just sufficient resemblance in tbe clear cut features to recall tbe relationship. De Catlnat was
sprung from a noble Huguenot family,
but, having lost bis parents early, he
had joined the army and had worked
his way without influence and against
(ill odds to his present position. His
father's younger brother, however, finding every path to fortune barred to
him through the persecution to whicli
men of his faith wero already subjected, bad dropped tbe "de" which Implied
bis noble descent and had taken to
trade In the city of Paris, wltb sucb
success tbat be was now one of tbe
richest and most prominent citizens of
the town.
"Tell me, Adele," said he, "why do
you look troubled?"
"You leave me this evening."
"But only to return tomorrow.''
"And must you really, really go tonight?"
"It would be as much as my commission Is worth to be absent. Why, I am
on duty tomorrow morning outside the
king's bedroom! After chapel time
Major de Brissac will take my place,
and then 1 am free once more. But
still that line upou your brow, dearest."
"I was wishing that father would return."
"And why? Are you so lonely, then?"
Her pale face lit up with a quick
smile. "I shall not be lonely until tonight But I am always uneasy wben
he Is away. One hears so much now of
tbe persecution of our poor brethren."
"Tut, my uncle can tlefy them."
''He has gone to the provost of the
Mercer guild about tbis notice of tbe
Quartering of the dragoons."
"Ah, you have not told me of that."
"Here It ls." Sbe rose aud took up a
slip of blue paper with a red seal dangling from It which lay upon the table.
His strong black brows knitted together as he glanced at it.
"Take notice," it ran, "tbat you, The-

De Catlnat knew well bow this method of annoying Huguenots had been
practiced all over France, but he had
flattered himself that bis own position
at court would have insured bis kinsman from such an outrage. He threw
tlie paper down with an exclamation
of anger.
"When do they come?"
"Father said tonight."
"Then tbey shall not be here long.
Tomorrow I shall have an order to remove tbem. But the sun has sunk behind St. Martin's church, and I sbould
already be upou my way."
"No, no; you must not go yet."
"I would tbat I could give you luto
your father's charge first, for I fear to
leave you alone when these troopers
may come. And yet no excuse will
avail me If I nm not at Versailles.
But see; a horseman has stopped before the door. He Is not In uniform.
1'erlnips be Is a messenger."
The girl ran eagerly to the window
and peered out.
"Ah!" she cried. "I bad forgotten.
It is tbe man from America. Father
said that be would come today."
"The man from America!" repeated
the soldier In a tone of surprise, nud
tbey both craned their necks from the
The horseman, a sturdy, broad shouldered young mini, clean shaven and
crop haired, turned his long, swarthy
face and his bold features In their direction as be ran bis eye over the front
of tbo bouse. He had n soft brimmed
gray hat of a shape which was strange
to Parisian eyes, but bis somber clothes
and high boots were such us any citizen might have worn. Yet his general
appearance was so unusual that a
group of townsfolk had already assembled .round   blip, _sj_irltig  with   open
mouth at his horse and himself. A
battered gun with an extremely long
barrel was fastened by tbe stock to
his stirrup, while the muzzle stuck up
into the air behind bim. Tbe rider,
having satisfied himself us to the house,
3prang lightly out of bis saddle and,
disengaging bis gun, pushed bis way
unconcernedly through the gaping
crowd and knocked loudly at the door.
"Who is he, then?" asked De Catinat.
"A Canadian? I am almost one myself. I had as many friends on one side
of the sea as on tbe other."
"Nay, he Is from tbe English provinces, Amory. But he speaks our
tongue.   His mother was of our blood."
"And bis name?"
"Is Amos���Amos���ah, those names!
Yes, Green, that was it, Amos Green.
His father and mine have done much
trade together, and now bis son, wbo,
as I understand, has lived ever in tbe
woods, is sent here to see something of
men and cities."
The Btranger entered and, having
bowed to Adele, said to her companion, "Do I speak with my father's
friend, M. Catinat?"
"No, monsieur," said tbe guardsman
from tlie staircase, "my uncle Is out,
but I am Captain de Catinat, at your
service, and here ts Mile. Catinat, wbo

"Why. monsieur, to sleep iu."
"And must I sleep In a room?"
De Catlnat laughed at the gloomy
face of tbe American. "You shall not
sleep there If you do not wish," said
The other brightened at once, and
stepped across to the farther window,
which looked down upon the courtyard.
"Ab!" he cried. There is a beech tree
there, mademoiselle, and If I might

No Necessity For Drooping, Yellow or
Falling Leaves.
Palms can be grown successfully ln
the house If one bas knowledge as to
tbelr needs. There is really no necessity, for the drooping, yellowing or
falling leaves that are too often tbe
result of home growing.
Grow them in a sunny window ln a
temperature that never falls below 50
degrees. They are less hurt by overheating than most foliage plants.
Guard against sudden variations of
heat and cold.
Give palms plenty of pot room, but
not too much. Shifting to larger pots
is usually only necessary about every
two years.
A little fertilizer, say a teaspoonful
of ammontnted bone meal mixed in a
little tepid water and poured around
tbe roots, may be given every ,two
weeks. Others use successfully weak
manure water diluted to tbe color of
weak tea.
Never let water stand In the saucer
beneath the pot, but keep on watering
until a little shows through at the bottom. Then do not water again until
little dry blotches begin to appear on
the surface.
It is a mistake to use glazed Jardinieres, as palms need porous pots thnt
let in the air to their roots. Tbe ordinary red flowerpot ls tbe best choice.
See tbat It Is kept clean on the outside.
Keep the fronds clean by sponging
In tepid soapsuds nt least once a week.
Bust blotches generally mean too
much watering. When they appear,
let the pot dry out for a few days and
cut out the rusty pnrts.
Red blotches mean red spider, and
the leaves sbould at once be washed
with very weak carbolic soapsuds.
Persistent spraying of tbe undersides
of tbe leaves witb plain water will
usually prevent these pests. They
come from too dry an atmosphere.
Dried tips are another sign tbat the
air of the living room Is not moist
enough for the palm. Clip off the tips
and take pains to bave more moisture
In the room. A pan of water on the
radiator is a corrective to dryness.

Why You Should Teach Your Children
Jiu Jitsu.
One of the most Interesting subjects
brought up for discussion at tbe recent
International congress on school hygiene was the question of Including
the teaching of _lu jitsu, or Japanese
wrestling, as part of the regular school
One thing about Jiu jitsu Is that it Is
graceful. The throws and falls are all
done when expert with an ease snd
grace that are little short of marvelous. What Is of more Importance ls
the wonderfully beneficial effect It has
upon the bealth of those little pupils
wbo have already become proficient
and wbo number small mites of five or
six years.
One of the most potent results Is tbo
Improved circulation of a child who
has been through a course of training,
tbe exercise Invigorating all the organs and starting the circulation
through brain and body. It permits of
no danger of strain and can consequently be Indulged In by tbe small
devotee without any anxiety on the
pnrt of the school authorities.
ln the case of an exceedingly delicate child the result bas proved satisfactory beyond tbe most sanguine
hopes, and the difference ln the physique of the little pupil, who numbers
eight or nine summers, Beems hardly
credible after a course of only three
months' training.
A lesson In Jiu Jitsu lasts from twenty to thirty minutes, the movements
representing the art of self defense or
attack. Naturally enougli, In the case
of tho smnll people It Is necessary to
teach the attitudes one by one till tbey
become Instinctive, the actual reasoning power which would direct when
they should be turned to account requiring riper years.
The ankle trip, which consists Iu
swinging the opponent's leg aside just
at the psychological moment, when his
weight ls being shifted from tbe left
foot to the right, and pulling him
aside at tbe same time, ls taught first,
the children being wonderfully quick
at picking up the theory nnd being
given an opportunity of testing every
movement ou tbe teacher.
Man Should Listen to Wife's Counsel
In Business Affairs.
Governor Glenn of Nortb Carolina
"I advise every man wbo would be
successful to listen to his wife's counsel In business affairs. Tbe woman
who is really a man's helpmeet Is tbe
one who ls able to advise htm on every serious problem that confronts
hlm. But no woman cnu be a real
companion who must spend all her
time as cook and housekeeper. Sbe
ought to know about business and
what Is going ou lu tbe world. It Is
unreasonable of any man to expect his
wife to meet his needs ns a real companion if he does not provide tbe
menus for her to become so. A wife
should have some leisure to study and
develop herself along intellectual lines.
A man who holds the opposite Idea
lowers the standard for wifehood and
womanhood. And every girl and woman In the country should have a
strict nnd thorough business education. No matter how fortunate a
girl's Immediate circumstances, she
should be given n complete business
training. Let them be trained to be
first class stenographers, bank cashiers, professional nurses, bookkeepers
���anything tbey have talent for. But
let tbelr equipment be complete, ns a
man's ls. It Is a dreadful mistake to
lenve a girl without any definite training whereby she may earn a livelihood

reason many women go into wrong
paths in life ls simply because they
are helpless when thrown suddenly on
their own resources."���Woman's Journal.

Ex-Premier    of    England     Expresses
Views on Decay of Nations.
Decadence was the subject of tba
Henry Sidgwick memorial lecture delivered by Mr. Balfour at Newnham
College, Cambridge (Eng.), recently,
and on which the ex-Premier made
some significant remarks-.
"Why should civilizations wear out
and great communities decay, and
what evidence was there that in lact
tbey did?" he asked. Though antiquity, pngan and Christian, took a
different view, it seemed easier to
understand progress tban decadence.
Decadence was always complicated
with and often acted through other
more obvious causes. It was in vain
that historians enumerated tbe public
calamities which preceded and no
doubt contributed to final catastrophes.
We felt that some of those diseases
were of a kind which a vigorous body
politic should easily be able to survive, that others were secondary
symptoms of some obscurer malady,
and that in neither ease did tbey
supply us with the full explanations
of which we were in search.
"Consider, for instance," he went
on, "the long agony and final destruction of Roman imperialism in tho
west, the most momentous catastrophe
of which we had historic record."
Rome fell, and grent was tbe fall
of it. But why it fell, by what secret mines its defences were breached,
and what mnele its garrison so fainthearted nnd ineffectual���thnt was not
so clear. Wbat grounds were there
for supposing thnt we could escape
the fate to which other races had had
to submit If civilizations wore out
and races became effete, why should
w? expect to progress indefinitely?
Why, for us alone, wan tbe doom of
man to be reversed? To those questions he bad no very satisfactory answers to give.
A new social force had eomo into
being. If in the last hundred years
the whole material setting of civilized life had altered, we owed it neither to politicians nor to political
institutions; we owed it to the combined efforts of those who had advanced science and those who had
applied it Scicial cbnnge, all tbe
greater because its object was not
change, but knowledge, and its silent
appropriation of this dominant function amid the din of political and
relicious strife was the most vital of
all the revolutions which had marked
the development of modern civilization.
Referring to democracy, he said it
was an excellent thing, but though
quite consistent with progress, it was
not progressive. Tts value was regulative, not dvnamie; anel if it meant, as
it never did, social uniformity, instead of leenl equality, we sbould become fossilized nt once. Movement
might bo controlled or cheeked by
tbe many; it was initiated and made
effective  by tbe few.
"Tbe conclusions at which T provisionally arrive," added Mr. Balfour,
"are that we cannot regarel deead-
ance nnd arrested development as loss
normal in human communities than
progress; that tbe internal causes by
which progress is encouraged, hindered or reversed lie to a great extent
beyond the field ol ordinarv political
diseu.ision, nnd are not easily ���express-'
ed in current political terminology;
thnt tbe influence which a superior
civilization, whether acting by example or imposed bv force, may have
in advancing an inferior one, though
often beneficent, is not likely to be
self-supporting���its withdrawal will
be followed by decadence, unless the
character of tbe civilization be in
harmony both with the acquired temperament nnd the innnte capacities
of those wbo bave been induced to
accept it; thnt ns regards those nations which still advance in virtue of
their own inherent energies, though
time has brought perhaps new causes
nf disouiet, it has brought also new
grounds of hope; nnd that whatever
be the perils in front of us there are
so fnr no symptoms either of pause
or of regression in tbe onward movement which for more than a thousand
years hns been characteristic of western  civilization."
Conflicting  Stories aa to   Ita  Disposition After Death.
"What became of Cromwell?" The
question ts a vexed oue. According to
an ancient tradition Cromwell's body
was conveyed away Immediately after
his death in obedience to his last or-'
ders and was burled on Naseby field,
"where he bad obtained the greatest
victory and glory." According to another account, Mary, Lady Faucon-
berg, Cromwell's daughter, was able
to convey the body away from ita
grave in the abbey and to have It burled In her husband's house of New-
burg, ln Yorkshire, where the tomb,
an Impenetrable marble one, ls still
shown. Another corpse was substituted for Cromwell's In tbe abbey, and It
was this nameless corpse which underwent the indignities put upon it in
January, 1GG1, wben the putative body
was hanged on the gallows at Tyburn,
together with Ireton's and Bradshaw's,
while the head was set up on a pole
above Westminster ball.
ThLs head, still transfixed by a spike
which was let through tbe cranium by
means of a specially drilled hole, is
now In the possession of Horace Wilkinson of Sevenonks. It ls the head,
curiously enough, of some one whose
boely bus prolmbly been embalmed, for
the top of the skull has been sawed off
In order, presumably, to ndmlt of the
removal of tbe bruins. The body to
which this bead belonged wns burled

Many People Ruin Their Health
Using Purgatives in Spring.
A spiing medicine is an actual necessity. Nature demands it as an aid
to carrying off the impurities that
have accumulated in the blood during
the winter months. Thousands if
people recognizing tlie necessity of a
spring medicine dose themselves with
harsh, griping purgatives. This is a
serious mistake. Ask any doctor and
be will tell you that the use of purgative medicine weakens tbe system,
but elues not cure disease. In tbe
spiing the system needs building up���
purgatives weaken. Tlie blood should
be made rich, red and pure���purgatives cannot do this. Wbat is needed
mi tlie spring is a tonic, and the best
tonic medical science has yet devised
ie Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Every
dose of this medicine actually makes
new rich reel blood. This new blood
strengthens every organ, every nerve,
every part of the body. That is why
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills banish pimples nnd unsightly skin eruptions.
Thnt is why tbey cure headaches,

F arty-One Couples Eager to Earn $500
by Unique Ceremony.
Forty-one applications from wolild-
bo brides or bridegrooms have already
been received from all parts of England as the result of an offer by the
management of the London Hippodrome of ��100 to the couple who are
willing to be married under water,
in the centre of the arena, which will
be lowered for the occasion and flooded with water.
By means of ingenious mechanical
contrivances and illusions, bride and
bridegroom, clergyman and best man
alike, a few moments before the wedding, will appear to the audience to
be engulfed by the flood of water and
drowned, whereas, by reason largely
of a series of diving bells, as well as
by waterproof clothing, those who
take part in the ceremony will be
virtually as dry as the' spectators
themselves. Lights .turned on under
the water will enable the audience
to witness the performance of the
ceremony  throughout.
Tt will be extremely difficult to secure a performance of any valid mar
riagc ceremony under the circumstances. In view of the fact tbat the
Hippodrome is not licensed as a place
for the solemnization of marriage, no
license can be issued by any registrar, and no such ceremony as that
contemplated would constitute a marriage.
At the Bishop of London's marriage
registry office, Doctors' Commons, it
was stated that such a ceremony
could only be performed, under the
canons of the Church of England,
by the granting of a special license
by the Archbishop of Canterbury, a
highly improbable proceeding in the
present instance. Cases of special licenses being granted, it was added,
did not occur once a year, and then
only in very exceptional circumstances. The most recent occasion
was Lord Loreburn's marriage in the
crypt under Westminster Abbey.
British Commoner Would Movi Up
Clocks   In  Summer.
About a year ago there was announced a scheme which had been
proposed by a certain Willet, who was
distressed at the enormous amount of
daylight Britishers -- especially Londoners���wasted abed. He suggested
that all clocks should be simultaneously put forward so that a man
getting up apparently at 9 in the
morning would really be doing so at
7.40, and thus would gain an hour
and twenty minutes of daylight. Mr.
Pearce of the House of Commons has
drawn up a bill entitled "The Daylight Saving Bill," which asks that
the House of Commons legally institute a new British time for the summer months.
The measure proposes that all clocltB
be then advanced eighty minutes, giving Britishers 210 extra hours -of daylight as by a miracle.
Business men and eminent brain
specialists declare all tbe best work is
dene early in the morning, and, therefore, the scheme would increase the
output of authors, clerks, and all sorts
and conditions of men.
The beael of one of the biggest business firms in tbe city says he is not
willing to discuss the matter, but the
railways and business houses must all
concur that an extra hour for the
summer evening cricket or tennis
game appeals to tbe young city man
The manager of the Savoy declares
the change is impossible for society
whose dining hour is late, and it is
possible people would dislike walking
about in evening dress in daylight
II the bill passes it means dinner at
7.30, which is now at 6.10.
The Perfect Dress.
"There is in the world one matter
of taste," Bays Sir Frederick Treves,
"upon which unnnimity of opinion
can never be obtained, and that is on
the subject of woman's  dress.
"It may as well be stated, therefore, without the least hope of carrying conviction, that the dress of the
Burmese women is as nearly perfect
as any female costume can be.
"It's chief claim to perfection is
that it is exquisitely, divinely simple.
It consists of a white linen jacket of
the plainest possible type, without
collars, ties or cuffs, and a skirt of
unstudied silk wrapped closely round
the body down to the feet. This robe
is marred neither by flounce nor frill,
and, bo far as the uninitiated can
tell, it bas escaped even the teuch of
the needle or thread.
"Sandals to the feet and gold bangles to the wrist complete the costume. Whatever/may be the artistic
value of this attire, it can at least
claim to be perfect from th��! stand- I
point of health.
"The Burmese woman 'djes' her
hair with equal simplicity ri a neat
coil, which displays the outl*ne of the
head with perfection, and no hair
arrangement of the ancient Greeks
could be more 'classical.' A fresh
flower, or possibly a comb, is the
Bole ornament.
"There is no attempt to contort
the human hair into puffs or rolls,
or to make it a grotesque, meaningless structure, held up by pins and
cords, and undermined by Irowsy
An Incident In Ireland's Cattle-Driving Campaign.
Mr. Birrell makes the following reply in Parliament papers to a question
by Mr. Staveley-Hill regarding the
number of cases of cattle and sheep
driving in Ireland reported to the police since June 30,  1907:
"Three hundred and thirty-foui
cases of cattle-driving have been reported since June 30. In twenty*
Beven cases it was stated that the animals bad been injured. In the great
majority of these cases tbe alleged injury consisted in the deterioration ol
the cattle through overdriving, which
caused lameness or exhaustion.
"In one instance one of the cattle
was found dead from exhaustion. In
another case some sheep were painter! green. In another, the tails of
three bullocks were cut, but in this
instance the drive is stated to have
been due to a family dispute aud not
to the anti-grazing agitation.
"Claims for compensation were
made in twenty-two cases. In seven
of these compensation has been granted, eleven claims are pending, and
four have been dropped. In no case

Natives of India Being Stirred Up by
The officers of the German steamship Neuenfels, which arrived recently from India und Ceylon, report a
serious condition of affairs throughout India. The natives tbey assert
are openly defying the British. They
bave boycotted the British goods, and
have refused to handle cargoes shipped by British merchants. In the
interior tliey are on tho verge ol open
revolt, and in many places tbey are
arming and preparing to combut British rule. Agitators Bre largely responsible for tlie present conditions.
They are inciting the natives to acts
of violence. They believe the Japanese will aid them if they should engage in war with Britain, and tbey
declare they will  be victorious.
In the larger cities the feeling
againat tbe Britisli and ioreigners in
general haB taken the form of a boycott, and commerce is greatly hampered. The Neuenfels was delayed 64
days at Calcutta waiting for her cargo. The natives refused to work on
the freighter ami it was weeks before
a gang of longshoremen could be got
together who would load the ship.
Calcutta harbor at that time was tilled with British steamers unable to
get cargoes.
King Edward's Cigars.
The King of England has placed
with a New York firm of tobacco brokers an order for 500 cigars, wliich in
point of price will be slightly beyond
what the royal smoker paid two years
ago, when bis bHl for 1,000 cigars was
$3,000. For tbe 500 which are to be
shipped from Havana in time to
reach England at the beginning of the
Easter holidays, the price will be
$1,600, but it 'is not likely that they
will excel, even if tbey equal, tbe
famous 1,000 which took three months
in the making. If Lucullus banded
cigars around nfter his feasts of peacock tongues nnd bumming bird pot-
pie, he never bade his guests smoke
up on such carefully and daintily
prepared  cigurs  as  those.
"There is no exaggeration as to the
price or the expense incurred in the
manufacture," said the manager of a
big cigar Btore. "The price for the
1,000 cigars was actually $3,000, and
the margin of profit was exceedingly
small, because the manufacturer was
eager to gain the prestige of having
served royalty. The cigars were eight
inches in length, and at the thickest
part, in the middle, one inch in diameter. Tbey were made of the finest Vuelta Abajo tobacco. Each leaf
passed through the bands of two "selectors" and it required the examination of thousands of leaves to obtain
those that were uniform in color and
size and free from large veuns. When
the cigars were finished���the workmen
received S5 cents for each cigar���the
name of the guest was lettered in gold
leaf on the body of these high-class
smokes, and each was encased in a
silken envelope. The thousand were
packed in sealed cedar boxes and
shipped to England.
"The time and expense was consumed principally in the selection of the
leaf and in tbe extra frills of gold
leaf and silk, but so far as the quality of the tobacco was concerned, it
was no better than that smoked by
many New Yorkers. The manufacturer was so anxious to make a hit
with the King that his profit was
scarcely worth considering.
"The cigarmakors doing the work
got so good an opinion of themselves
that they wouldn't bathe in the same
ocean with the fellows who were working on the ordinary dollar oigars. It
was unquestionably the greatest cigar
order ever executed in the world.
The 500 that nre to go to England at
Easter will bnve thin bands of gold
on them, but tbey will not be wrapped in silk. The manufacturer expects to make a better profit than
the mnn who filled the order for the
1,000 two years ago."
The Air Is Black.
Frederick Hovenden, a prominent
English scientist, claims to have
photographed the etberic waves of
heat and electricity, which are invisible, of course. He says tbey are a
fluid which, properly illuminated,
becomes visible to tbe naked eye and
can be cincmnt'igrophcd.
He fills a square glass box with to-
bocco smoke, puts bis fiinger through
a hole in the side and turns on the
box the rays from a powerful electrio
lamp. Then, he says, he sees tbe ether issuing from his finger and permeating the tobacco smoke. The ether
escapes from his finger even when it
is covered with a tight-fitting rubber
Hovenden also demonstrates tbat
the air we breathe is conl block in
color. He illuminates powerfully nnd
microscopically enlarges by mnny diameters ordinary air issuing from a
hole in n glnss box. Then tbe black
molecules forming tbe nir can be seen
James Heard, of Morton Park, Ont.,
says: "While employed at the Specialty Works ci Newmarket 6 or 7
yeai = ago, I bruised my ankle, but
through neglect thi3 bruise turned to

Commoner  Says  They  Are   Bestowed
For  Election  Funds.
An unusual scene was provoked in
the House oi Commons recently, in
the course of a debate on a motion
introduced by Hilaire Belloc, Liberal
member for South Salford, regarding
the secret administration of party
Mr. Belloc said he had no charges
ol maladministration nor startling
revelations  to  make.
He didn't say that evils even existed, but he expressed the fear tbat
some might arise, and in order to
avoid dangerous possibilities he proposed that the party funds be publicly audited.
Another Liberal, Hugh C. Lea. who
seconded Mr. Belloc's motion, contended that the practice of conferring
peerages and other honors on those
who had contributed to the party
funds was essentially wrong.
He remarked that aome months ago
a sensation bad been created by a
vehement attack upon tbe Government for wbat was called its "traffic
in peerages" and other honors.
It was a matter of common knowledge and gossip in the House of Commons, he said, tbut ths titles and decorations in vogue were aa lacking
in dignity, prestige, anil moral worth
as wero the methods by which they
were obtained, and were just as loathsome, corrupt, and nauseous.
"Putting aside the Garter order,
and other tomfi_.,lery of that sort,"
continued Mr. Lea, "the present Government hns made twenty peers, thirty-three barons, and ninety-live
knights, of whom thirty-seven were
members of tbe House of Commons."
Mr. Lea gravely aelvanced the theory
that this high percentage suggested
the ielea that some of the members
entered the House with a view to social advancement.
Nobody expressed any doubt of the
accuracy of this view, but Mr. Lea
considered it useful to support bis
contention because of a story that
had co"*e within his personal experience
Ha *-s, he said, a member of a
Commons' committee, the chairman
of which had been a knight. One of
his colleagues refused to congratulate
the recipient, remarking that it was
a matter for commiseration rather
than  for congratulation.
"Imagine the knight's feelings," exclaimed Mr. I,ea, "when eight months
Tater the man who struck the jarring
note was himself made a knight."
The House made merry over the
story, and an Irish member, Swift
McNeill, added to tbe jocularty by
saying that he considered that peers
and peerages were like faith ��� the
substance of things hoped for and
the evidence of tilings not seen.
As Judge Curren had said years ago,
there was a market for peerages just
as certain as there waa a market for
Personally he would have a tariff
for titles, and would duplicate the
garter and put tbem on both legs.
Mr. Lea's anecdote, however, was
too personal not to provoke a response. Everyboely knew thut he referred to Sir William Randal Cremer
as be is the member for Haggerston
to whom Mr. Lea had specifically referred in a communication he made
to a newspaper last July.
Sir William then arose and gave
Mr. Lea's statement a most absolute
and direct denial, and eventually Mr.
Lea was squelched by the Speaker insisting that he withdraw certain terms
he used as unparliamentary.
It is a matttr of fact that Sir William, who is a Chevalier de la Legion
d'Honneur, declined a knighthood in
1906, but when the offer was renewed
the following year he accepted it.
Village Strikers' Humor.
The moorland village of Wors-
thorne, near Burnley, was the scene
of lively proceedings this week in connection with a strike of weavers at
the village mill. This mill is run on
self-help lines, and most of the weavers are shareholders, but the remainder have no pecuniary interest in the
concern, and it is amongst those non-
shareholders that the dispute has arisen Putting the'r-uelves in possession
of a donkey p;,el cart they drove about
the village with a large card which
bore thc words: "I am an ass but not
a knobstick." Subsequently they put
in an appearance with the carcase of
a large pig reared up in the cart. On
the flanks of the animal were the
words, "No surrender." lhe cart was
followed by a procession of strikers
anel their children, and all proceeded
to the mill and awaited the dispersing of the operatives, who were hooted as they left. At night the pig was
cut up, weighed into equal portions,
and distributed amongst the strikers.

Will Attack Headheads.
The proposed attack on tbe "free
list" is tbe subject of general discussion in theatrical circles in London,
as well as among the "deadheads"
whom it is propoaeel to abolish.
Inquiries at the West End theatres
show that the power of the "deadheads" is even greater than most people imagine. Several managers who
resent the encroachments of this class
of patrons on theatrical business estimate tbat 5,000 free seats are sometimes given awny in a single week
(or West End amusements, and they
do not consider $7,500 an excessive
estimate of the face value of these
tickets. There are managers who say
that this understates the case.
To enumerate the classes that supply "deadheads" is, 8 manager xe*
plained, unnecessary; all except the
very poor are included. Well-known
people in society are in the ranks
as well as actors, barristers, 'solicitors, friends of actors and people who
through some cause or othei had had
their names and addresses given fo>
free tickets. Tickets are sent to banks,
to hospitals, to printers, advertising
agencies, hotel staffs, club staffs, and
boarding houses.
Banks as Speaker.
N. P. Banks as speaker of the house
was simply magnificent He was the

spheres." His voice rang out amid the
wildest commotion, and order Instantly prevailed.
Flaxseed Most Suitable for Sowing
on Newly Broken Prairie Land
Flax bus peculiar claims to tlie title of "The Pioneer's Crop." It is
the most suitable of all crops for sowing at first breaking of tlie prairie
sod. Where flax is sown on first
breaking a Med bed comparatively
free from weeds is provided, the farmer derives a revenue from his land
the first yenr, nnd tbe crop effectually
rots the sod so as to admit of ploughing to the ordinary depth In the autumn. Then it can bo sown later
than any of the other cereal crops
because it matures more quickly, anil
the new settler, taking up land in
the early spring, may not be able to
prepare his land for a wheat crop in
time for seeding. Farmers who have
only a portion of tlieir land ready in
time for sowing wheat, barley and
oats, may sow the ilaxseeel after the
other crops are in. Indeed it is better
not to sow tbe flaxseed too early ns
the flux plant is tender in the spring
and easily injured by frost, but it is
far less liable to injury from this
cause in autumn. The best results
are said to be obtained in the Canadian West by sowing from the 15th
to the 25th of May although good results have been obtained from seed
sown as lnte as tlie middle of June
and even later.
Last year the spring was very lnte
and the growing season short so that
the wheat crop suffered quite severely
in many sections of the Canadian
West, but there was a remarkable increase in the flax crop. In the province of Saskatchewan, where most
of the flax raised in the Canailian
West is grown, the yield in 1907 was
1,364,716 bushels of flaxseed as oom-
pareel witb 710,689 bushels in the year
1906. In Alberta the yield in 1907 was
130,974 bushels of flaxseed as compared with 38,491 bushels in 1906. In
Manitoba tlie crop of flaxseed was
317,347 bushels in 1907 ns compared
with 274.330 bushels in 1906.
The increased yield of flaxsed was
no doubt largely due to the fact that
farmers sowed flaxseed when it was
too Into to sow .wheat.
While flaxseed is pre-eminently the
pioneer's crop, it will pay the old
settlers also to reserve a portion ol
tlieir lnnd for this creio every yenr,
tnking care to have a proper rotation
of crops.
In the Northwestern States it is
common to grow flax alter wheat er
oats, but no regular system of rotation is followed as a rule.
Many fanners in the Northwestern
States have made the mistake cf
growing flax on the same soil year
alter year without rotation ol crops.
Canadian farmers should avoid this

A south-westerly gale of great violence swept over Great Britain recently and did immense damage both to

the result of a "cyclonic disturbance

Its Power of Changing Color For Self
The tree frog Is found throughout
the eastern United States, ranging west
to Kansas and Texas uud north Into
Canada. It Inhabits woods and or-
cbiirds and is found Ou trees, stone
walls, feue'cs and houses. Tbe eggs,
which are deposited eurly In Mny, are
attached singly or ln small groups to
grass or dead steins at the surface of
the water. Early In July the young
iuvc passed through the tadpole stage
md leave the water. Tbey are green
it first, but soon turn to gray or gray
mil green. Tbe tree frog Is largely
loi'turnal in bublts and feeds on In -
lects, It ls notable lor Its ninny color
���liauges and varies from almost white
to green or ebirk brown or various combinations of green and gray.
While (be tree frog Is common
throughout lbe eastern United States,
Its purring trill Is far more familiar
than the frog Itself, owing to Its retiring habits nud powers of resembling In
color the object on which It rests.
The tree frog Is thus one of the best as
well as one of tbe most familiar examples of what ls called protective coloration, a resemblance ln color betwty*-?
any animal and Its surroundings tbat
renders It Inconspicuous and enables It
to elude the eyes of* animals.
Miss Mary Dickerson In "The Frog
Book" says: "Tbe color varies greatly
at different times and ln different conditions. In bright light and high temperature It may be yellowish white
with no markings. In a dark, moist
or cool place It mny*e deep stone gray
or brown. Wben the background of
color ls green his characteristic markings may or mny not appear. Tho
changes of color are not rapid, an hour
at least seeming necessary to create
auy radical difference. But It Is usually true that tbe given dress harmonizes
so perfectly with tbo surroundings that
the tree frog Is ns lu visible as though
he were Perseus in bis charmed helmet."
