In our issue of the 1st inst. we Btated
that Miss Kitty Hope, formerly of Cody,

was a mistake, aa the prize was for
needle work.
D. St. Denis met with a rather serious accident on Friday last, while shooting in the annual contest of the Rifle
Association at Slocan. The Ross rifle
that lie was using burst, and a porli in
of the shattered ejector cut an ugly gash
in liis forehead, at the edge of tho hair.
Another piece of the Eteel pierced one
eye and will render an operation necessary. A defective shell is thought to
have caused the damage.

Lest you forget! Smith Curtia, the
Liberal candidate ia a lawyer. The i
lawyers dominated in the Dominion
House last trip. There's a reason for
being suspicions. Did it never occur to
you that lawyers in this country look
upon Ottawa aa their Mecca?. Corporations need lawyers to put bills through
for them. See tho point?���Creston Review.
Dishonest Practises.
An instance of the dishonest practises
that bid fair to Spoil the prairie market
for British Columbia fruit of the best
quality, as well as giving the province
�� "black eye" with those who aro not in
a position to know better, was exhibited
during the fair. It was provided by a
well-known resident cf this town, who
purchased the specimens in Calgary
through tlie usual retail channels.
The fruit, in question is a box of apples, Spitsbergen in variety, that were
purchased aa No. 1 at a cost of $1,60.
Na shippers' marks appear on the box,
and all that is stamped on it ia thc name
and address of the tellers, and "Grade
No". 1." According to the standard by
which the local exchange, in common
with the rest of the province, is grading
and packing, this box could only be
sold as cooking, and when compared
with a box of local No. I's the contents
of the box under notice is a scrubby
looking lot. The apples are small, badly soabbad, poor color, and in soft condition���in fact, only of cooking grade.
Thia ia not tho end of tlie question,
however, for this fiuit was Bold aa British Columbia product, and upon enquiry
it seems conclusive that it is the Calgary firm that ie responsible for the deception, as this Bhipnieiit was consigned
from Washington as ''Cookers." It is
understood that this practise is pretty
general throughout the Northwest and
the firm in question was one that ad-
yiaed our local exchange that ita price
was too high. One does not wonder at
it when the facts are known. It is
email wonder that the price offered for
our No. 1 is smaller than last year, and
that one reads thut the Americans have
captured the prairie market, if this ia
ihe diahone-t way that the retailers are
conducting business. It aleo seems to
explain an article that recently appeared in tlie Kelowna Courier, calling
atteniion to the way in which shipments
of Washington fruit were demoralizing
the market. Onlv by the connivance of
commission and retail houses conld
such fruit spoil the market for the best
quality, and on the face of it it looks to
be a deliberate scheme.
Here is a matter wliich, we think
should be inquired into by the Dominion
fruit inspector, and if the facta are found
to be as represented above, and we have
no doubt to the contrary, then the retailers of such fruit, who sold American
culls as British Columbia No. I's, should
be dealt with to the utmost rigor of the
law.
Growers all over the province will
learn of thia fraud with justifiable indignation, as local men have done, and
will demand an enquiry into the same
by the authorities. It is most unfair
that such a fraud should be allowed
when   the   Government   has    brought
?	
such great pressure to bear  upon home
growers for the pnrp.st of raising tlie
fruit standard. A lai ;e proportion of
the calls that this Exchange is���returning to tlie growers to be sold on the local market at 50 cents t*. box or fed to
the pigs, are better value than the box
under notice.���Salmon Arm  Observer.
Conservative Victory Assured.
All signs point to the defeat of the
Laurier government nnd a sweeping
Conservative victory at the elections
tliis month.
Reversals such as tliesi are the most
hopeful and wholesome features of oui
political ry=tom. They sweeten government and cleanse it i-f those sinister
forces that would degrade it into the
meanB of thwarting the'will of the people, Good citizens may rejoice in the
enlightenment and independence ol
public opinion without which they are
not possible.
From every side there comes the
most positive assurance of ail overwhelming sentiment against the misrule at Ottawa.
Mr. Borden's tour has been a veritable
triumph, while the presence on his platform of representatives of the Provincial
Governments of New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba and Biiiish Columbia,
have emphasized the national character
of the protest against tlie inefficiency,
extravagence and dangerous methods of
the Liberal Ministry.
Mr, Brodeur has admitted at Soulan-
gea that tlio election of leu Conservatives in O.uebcc would mean the defeat
of the Government. Mr. Borden bad
eleven supporters from that province in
tlie last parliament, and a Conservative
gain of from ten to fifteen seats is confidently expected. The secession of the
Nationalist party from tbe Liberal
ranks at thia election, the appearance
of Ml*, Bourassa's' name on tbe nomination paper of the Btraigbt Conservative
candidate and tlio personnel of the Conservative candidates are conclusive
signs that the younger men of bis race
and religion are not satisfied with Sir
Wilfrid Laurier. Members of Mr. Borden's party are assured of an awakening
in Quebec beyond their best expectations.
Mr. Borden's promise ot restitution
to the country of all tbat has been taken
from it and the prospective loss of their
apoiie in graft and deals havo driven
the boodlers and grafterB to the worst
extremity of their craft. The friends of
good government in the West must be
on the alert until tbe last good vote ia
polled.
The p'resent Ottawa regime will die
just as burely as tbe Life Insurance
agent saya that you will.
Laurier himself says that lie ia prepared to sing the "Nunc Dimittis."
Increase of Debt.
The government organs are publishing comparative ttatcments showing
that the national debt lias increased
only one and a half million a year since
the Liberal, took office. This is an old
story. Why not bring the statements
down to date ? What is the good of
saying that tho debt increased only
|19,000,UOO in twelve years down to
190S, when it has increased $27,000,000
last year? The increase of August alone
was $3,253,(101���and the debt ia growing
steadily at the rata of three to four
millions a month. At this moment Mr.
Fielding is Hying to borrow *2o,0C0,000
in London.
A CHANGE IS AS GOOD AS A REST
You caino when we called  you a  long
time ago,
Now we've tried you, it must be confessed
We have stood to the  limit corruption
and graft,
But a change is as good as a rest.
We've had curl paper bridges and booz-
ey old scouts
Have heen banded out jobs of the best;
We have stood for tlie gaff and paid all
the bills,
Now a change looks as good as a rest.
Wo'vo been sold with ballots and crooked campaigns
Till we're guyed in the East and the
West;
Though yon say yon'll do better, you've
said that before,
And to chuck you right out would be
beat.
For though you can promise tho pleas-
ingeat things,
That talk is found hard to digest;
So it seems to be time that that diet
was changed;
And a change is aa good aa a rest.
Dismiss the Laurier Government now.
What are you wailing for?
A Pennsylvania doctor, who has a
decided vein of humor in his make-up,
says the New York Tribune, tell this
story:
"I bad an Irishwoman for a patient
many years," said the doctor. "God
rest her soul! she is now dead. I once
pulled her through a lingering attack of
typhoid, taking her temperature from
time to time by having her hold a thermometer under her tongue. When ehe
had nearly recovered I called one day,
without further testing her temperature,
left a simple proscription and started on
my way homeward. About three miles
from her house I was overtaken by hor
son on horseback.
"'Mother ia worse,' said he, 'como
right back.'
" 'Docther,' said the old lady, ���reproachfully, 'why didn't yo givo mo tlie
jigger undther my tougue? That did
me more good than all the lest of der
d trash.' "
George Parker left on  Thursday
Moyie to take up a situation there.

RECORD ROCK BRILUNS AT
The double-handed rock drilling contest at Spokane Fair was won by Pickens and JlcNicol, the burly Butte miners
by driving a hole 50 5-8 inches, whicli
constitutes a world's record. McGillivray and Erickson, of Silverton, last
yeai's winners, were awarded second
prize with 52 7*8 inches.
The work of lbe winners was much
admired by tho large crowd of onlookers
present and the result caused great jubilation among the American section.
McDonnell aud Istnor, who drilled
43 7-10 inches, were greatly impeded in
their work through an accident when
nearly three-fourths through, caused by
a hammer heatl flying off. As Ihe man
at the hammer seized anothor which
waa lying near and waa _in the act of
striking, tbo handle caught on something, and instead of bitting the drill
square, the hammer glanced oil and
caught McDonnell a aevcre blow* on the
band wliich almost put him out of action and rendered Iheir work lees effective afterwards.;
Johnson, of Silverton won flrst prize
in the single diilling contest with 23 3-4
inches, Erickson, also of Silverton,
gained eocond prize with 20 3-10 inclieB.
SMITH CURTIS' MEETING.
Considering the early hour (1.30) for
which the meeting was called there was
a fairly large gathering in tlie Bosun
Hall on Thursday afternoon when Mr.
Smith Curtis, the Liberal standard bearer for the Kootenay riding in the forthcoming election delivered  hia address.
Mr. Curtia confined hiniBelf principally to refuting the charges of dishonesty and corruption, which have been
levelled against the Laurier administration and described the Ottawa government as an honest, capable, and pro*,
gressive one.
Hia speech, whicli occupied over an
hour, was followed with close attention
by hia hearers and at its conclusion he
was accorded a most hearty ovation.
Mr. Curtis addressed a meeting at
Silverton in the evening.
"WESTWARD  HO!"
Thia magazine seems to know no limit to its powers of expansion and improvement; and the October is=uo ia
certainly its best. The fiction alone
runs to nine short stories covering the
sentimental, the tragic, the comic, the
philanthropic, the serious, and tbe
amatory. Among them are "Tlie Dal-
ton Case," by Arthur Davies, an author
of aiready attained celebrity; "Beneath
the Old Poke Bonnet," by Agnea Lock-
hart Hughes, whose works, both prose
and verse, are always appreciative and
sweet; "A Fifty Thousand Dollar
Laugh," by Billee Glynn, whoio name
is synonymous with humoorand pathos;
"Black Hawk Hank," by Mrs. Ruth
Everett; "The Dollar and the Cross,"
by J. D. Q. Donehoo; "The Measure of
His Love," by Isabel B. Macdonald;
"The Truth of Pretence," and others.
There are two excellent articles, one
by Bonnycastle Dale on "The Opening
of the Season," and one on tbe "'Alpine
Club of Canada," by H. Mitchell. Under diversified articles we find "Simon
Fraser," by E. O. B. Scholefield, Librarian of British Columbia, whose
intimacy with the subject has enabled
him to the public a splendid memoir of
the celebrated explorer; "Prince Rupert," by Rosalind W. Young; "The
Morale of Clothes," by Madame D'Al-
berta; "Mural Decorations," by Claude
W. Gray, A.R.C.A.; "B. T. A.Bell,"
by William Blakemore.
There are also the HBual features of
Editorial, Poetry, etc., while the illustrations throughout are numerous and
appropriate.
This is an old one, but it is not too
bad: A tremp rang a doctor's bell in
Spokane ono day last week and asked
the pretty woman who opened the door
if she would be ao kind aa to a8k the
doctor if he had a pair of old pants he
would kindly give away. "I am tlie
doctor," said the emiling young woman,
but the tramp didn't wait for the pants.

Several of tho banks having adopted
a policy of retrenchment and withdrawn their advertisements from various newspapeis, among.it tbem being
the Greenwood Ledge, It has led the
editor of that paper to comment aa
follows*.
"During our absence in tho cent belt
the banks of B, N. A., Commerce, and
Montreal, as If by a signal from some
tin god, withdrew their ads. from thia
papdr, evidently, as far as we can learn
and divine, becau o something has been
aaid in its columns in favor of tlie men
who work, slave and sweat in order that
distant millionaires may have money to
throw at tlie canaries, and cushions upon their automobiles. Ob, my! tbis ia
a weary woild with its bowing and
scraping to the power of gold. Wo feel
sorry to lose the bank ad*4. Tbey aro
such a fine line. Oaah on the spot and
a smile from the caBhier thrown in.
However, we will hear the giief aa best
we can, and trust that the working men
all over the country will not boycott
these banks and refuse lo do business
with thorn. Times have been so hard
tbat perhaps the poor banks cannot
afford to advertise and are merely following tlie example of the majority of business people in thia city of the future.
The managers of our local banks are
quiet, genial gentlemen as a rule, and
always willing to give you money, provided, of course, that you have security
equal to the occasion, and some over.
Oh, dear! we must not talk so much
about money and banks. It makes ua
lonesome and winter is just over the
divide." ^^^^^
It is the business of a newspaper man
to boom the town for all it is worth,
month after mouth, and then see $10
worth of printing go out of town because 10 centa can be Baved by to doing.
It is tlie busineaa of thu newspaper to
give every local enterprise enthusiastic
and frequent eend-offa, and then catch
the mischief because he failed to record
the fact some prominent citizen ba had
delivery wagon painted. To subscribe
liberally to every public, chaniablo and
church enterprize, advertise them for
nothing, pay bis own way to everything
and then bu called prejudiced and mean
spirited because a column ia not devoted
to that particular affair. Do you wonder that there are so many cranks in
the newspaper busineaa ? It ia bound
to make either a crank or a philosopher
out of a man.
The Queer Sunflsh.
The sunllsh or hendflsh i3 fairly common In the vicinity of Santa Gatalina
island. Its general appearance ls oblong and deep, very thin or compressed, cut oil (truncate) behind, so there
appears to be no tail, a mere rim of
movable flesh taking Its place, which
has a vory limited use in the slow locomotion of this extraordinary flsh. Tlio
skin Is hard nnd coarse, rough, scale*
leaa and covered with flat spines, the
entire skin covered with a thick coating of allmc, which appears to bo a
world in Itself for numerous parasites
which prey upon the fish.
This extraordinary fish is one of the
few fishes of little or no use to man.
"I am of the opinion," snys a naturalist, "that the hard skin might be
utilized. I once learned that the boys
of a certain village in Maine were
anxious to secure the muscular envelope of u specimen caught by me to
use It ns rubber. Thoy cut the hard,
elastic substance Into round shapes
nnd used thorn for the interior of homemade baseballs." ,    ���
Crude, GarUIi Allien*!. ,'
An American traveler writes: "Athena itself, as a city, is Insufferable. It
Is raw, garish, new, staring, crude, It
smells of paint. It reeks of varnish.
It is redolent of lust week. It is the
newest city one neea in southern Europe. It ia dusty, It is nolay, It is vulgar. Everything in it la Imitation. The
palaces nre Imitation. The hotels nre
Initiation. The nrmy ls Imitation. The
city is a sham. It ls a Joy to leave
the commonplace streets, to quit the
Insufferable city and to climb the
Acropolis. There everything Is calm
and peaceful, and the magnificent ruins
nre restful'. There only in Athens do
you Und a spot which is not oppressively new and raw. The royal palace is
oue of the newest and the rawest of all
the raw, new buildings." THE  SLOCAN   MINING   REVIEW,   NEW   DENVER,   B. C

Author  of   "The  Return  of   Sherlock
Holmes"
Copyright, 1803, by Harper A Brothers
(Continued)
Adele was helped over the side ano
ceated in the stern of a birch bark canoe. The three men unhooked the ladder aud swung themselves down by i
rope, while two Indians who held the
paddles pushed silently off from the
f-liip's side and shot swiftly up the
stream. A minute Inter a dim loom
behind them and the glimmer of two
yellow lights were all that they could
see of the St. Christophe.
"Take a paddle, Amos, and I'll take
oi.e," said Captain Savage, stripping
off his monk's gown. "I felt safer in
this on the deck of yon ship, but It
don't help ln a boat."
"I hope, madame, that all Is well
with you," said Amos.
"Nay, I can hardly understand what
has happened or where we are."
���'Nor can I, Amos."
"Did you not expect us to come back
for you, then?"
"I did uot kuow what to expect."
"Well, now, surely you could not
think that we would leave you without
a word."
"I confess that I was cut to the
heart by It."
"I feared that you were when I
looked at you with the tail of my eye
and saw you staring so blackly over
the bulwarks at us. But If we had
been seen talking or planning they
would have been upon our trail at
once."
"And what did you do?"
"We left the brig last night, got
ashore on the Beaupre side, arranged
tor this canoe and lay dark all day.
Then tonight we got alongside and I
roused you easily, for I knew where
you slept. Tbe friar nearly spoiled all
when you were below, but we gagged
him and passed him over the side."
"Ah, it ia glorioua to be free once
more!   And whore are we going?"
"Ah, there you have me. It is this
way or none, for we can't get down to
the sea. We must make our way overland as best we can, and we must
leave a good stretch between Quebec
and us before the day breaks, for,
from what I hear, they would rather
have a Huguenot prisoner than an Iroquois sagamore. By the eternal, I
cannot see why they should make such
a fuss over how a man chooses to save
his own soul."
All night they toiled up the great
river, straining every nerve to place
themselves beyond the reach of pursuit. By keeping well into the southern bank and so avoiding the force of
the current they sped swiftly along,
for both Amos and De Catinat were
practiced hands with the paddle, and
the two Indians worked as ��� though
they were wire and whipcord instead
of flesh and blood. When at last morning broke and the black shaded Imperceptibly into gray they were far out
of sight of the citndel and of all trace
of man's handiwork. Virgin woods in
tbelr wonderful many colored autumn
dress flowed right down to the river's
edge on either side, and ln the center
was a little Island.
"I've passed here before," said De
Catlnat. "I remember marking that
great maple with the blaze on its trunk
when last I went with the governor to
Montreal. That was In Frontenac's
day, when the king was first and the
bishop second."
The redskins, who had sat like terra
cotta figures, without a trace of expression upon their set, hard faces,
pricked up their ears at the sound of
that name.
"My brother has spoken of the great
Onontio," said one of them, glancing
round. "We have listened to the whistling of evil birds who tell us that he
will never come back."
"He is with the great white father,"
answered De Catiuat. "I have myself
seen him In his council, and he will assuredly come across the great water if
his people have need of him."
Tho Indian shook his shaven head.
"The rutting month is past, my brother," said he, speaking in broken French,
"but ere the month of the bird laying
has come there will be no white man
upon thia river save only behind stone
walls."
"What then? We have heard little.
Have the Iroquois broken out so fiercely?"
The Indian waved his hand along the
whole southern and western horizon.
"Where are they not? The woods are
rustling with them, They are like a
lire among dry grass, so swift and so
terrible."
"On my life," said De Catinat, "If
those devils nro indeed unchained they
will need old Frontenac back if they
are not to lie swept into the river."
"IIo wns an enemy 01' the church, and
the right hand of lhe foul fiend in this
country," snid a voice from the bottom
of the canoe.
It wns lhe frinr, who had succeeded
Ui getting rid of the buckskin glove
aud belt with which the two Americans
had gagged him.
"Why should we tnke hlm farther?"
asked AmoV "He Is but weight for
us to carry, and I cannot see that we
profit by hia company. Let us put hlm
out."
"And have him maybe ln front of ua,
warning the black-jackets," said old
Ephraim.
"On that island, then."
"Very guod. He cau hail the first of
his folk who pnss."
They shot over to the Island and
landed the friar, who said nothing, but
cursed them with his eye. They left
with him a small supply of biscuit and
of flour to last hlm until he should be
picked up, Then, having passed n
bend in the river, they ran their canoe
ashore in a little cove, where tliey laid
out their small stock of provisions and
ate n hearty breakfast while discussing
what their plana should be for the future.
Tliey wore not badly provided for their
journey. Tho captain of the Gloucester brig hi which the Americans had
started from Quebec know Ephralm
Savage well, as who did not upon the
Now England coast? He had accepted
his bill, therefore, nt three months'
date, aud he had leUiiui have in return
three excellent gutin. n good supply of
aiiu_,u,_j:i__i and enough uiuuex to.dxo*
\*iae ror an *ns"wanTs. in Tnrs way"he
had hired the canoe and the Indians
and bad fitted her with meat aud biscuit to last them for ten days at tb*��
least.
"It's like the breath of life to me to
'eel the heft of a gun and to smell the
::ees round me," said Amos. "Why,
it cannot be more than a hundred
leagues from here to Albany or Schenectady right through the forest."
"Aye, lad, but how is the gal to walk
a hundred leagues through a forest'/
No, no; let us keep water under our
keel and loan on the Lord."
"Then there is ouly one way for It.
We must make tbe Richelieu river ami
keep right along to Lake Chnmplaln
and Lake St. Sacrement. There we
should be close by the headwaters of
the Hudson."
"It is a dangerous road," said De
Catinat, who understood the conversation of his companions even when he
was unable to join in it. "We should
need to skirt the country of the Mohawks."
"It ls the only one, I guess. It is
that or nothing."
"And I have a friend upon the Richelieu river who, I am sure, would help
us on our way," said De Catinat, with
a smile. "You have heard me talk of
Charles de la Noue, Seigneur de Ste.
Marie. His seigneury lies on the Richelieu, a little to the south of Fort St.
Louis."
"Good!" cried Amos. "If we bave a
friend there we shall do well. That
clinches It, then, and we shnll hold fast
hy the river."
And so for a long week the little party toiled up the great waterway, keeping ever to the southern, bonk, when*
there were fewer clearings. Tho clearings radiated out from the villages,
and every cottage was built with an
eye to the military necessities of the
whole, so that the defense might make
a stand at all points and might finally
center upon the stoue mnnor house and
the mill.
At every step ln this country,
whether the traveler wore on the St.
Lawrence or west upon the lakes or
down upon the banks of the Mississippi or soutli In the country of tho
Cherokees and of the Creeks, he would
still find the inhabitants In the same
state of dreadful expectancy and from
the same cause. The Iroquois, as they
were named by the French, or the
Five Nations, ns tbey called themselves, hung like a cloud over the whole
great continent.
For half a century these tribes had
nursed a grudge townrd the French
since Champlnin and some of his followers hnd tnken part with their enemies against them. During all these
years tliey bad brooded in their forest
villages, flashing out now and again
in some border outrage, but waiting
for the most part until their chance
should come. And now it seemed to
them that It had come. Thoy had destroyed all the tribes who might have
allied themselves with the white men.
They had isolated them. They had
supplied themselves with good guns
and plenty of ammunition from the
Dutch and Engllsn of New lork. Tbe
long, thin line of French settlements
lay naked before them.
Such was the situation as the little
party of refugees paddled along the
bank of the river, seeking the only
path which could lead them to peace
and to freedom. Yet it was, as they
well knew, a dangerous road to follow. All down the Richelieu wero the
outposts and blockhouses of tbo
French. The blockhouses themselves
might hold their own, but to the little
party who had to travel down from
one to the other tho situation was full
of deadly peril. It was true that tho
Iroquois wore not at war with the
English, but they would discriminate
little when on the warpath, and tho
Americans, even had they wished to
do so, could not separate thoir fate
from that of their two French companions.
As they ascended the St. Lawrence
thoy met many canoes coming down.
More than once tiiese wayfarers
wished to have speech with the fugitives, but they pushed onward, disregarding tlieir signs and hails. From
below nothing overtook them, for they
paddled from early morning until late
at night.
On the seventh day they rested at a
point but a few miles from the mouth
of the Richelieu river, where a large
blockhouse, Fort Richelieu, had been
built by M. de Saurel. Once past this,
they had no great distance to go to
reach the seigucury of De Catlnat's
friend of the noblesse, who would help
them upon their way. Tliey had spent
the night upon a little island In midstream, and at enrly dnwn they wero
about to thrust the canoe out agnin
from tbe sand lined cove In which she
lay when Ephralm Savage growled 111
his throat and pointed out across the
water.
A lnrge canoe was coming up the
river, flying along as quick as a dozen
arms could drive It. In the stern snt
a dark figure, whicli bent forward with
every swing of the paddles as though
consumed by eagerness to push onward. Even nt thnt distance there
was no mistaking it. It wns the fanatical monk whom they had left behind
thorn.
Concealed among the brushwood,
they watched their pursuers fly past
and vanish round a curve ln a stroam.
"We'd have done better either to put
hlm overboard or to tnko him ns ballast," said Ephralm.
"Well, we can't take the back track,
anyhow," said Amos.
"And yet how can we go on?" snld
De Cntinnt despondently. "This vindictive devil will give word nt the
fort nnd at every other point nlong the
river."
"Let mo cipher It out." Amos Green
silt on n fallen maple with his head
sunk upon his hands. "Well," said ho
presently, "if It's no good going on and
no good irolng back, there's only one
wny, and that Is to go to ono side. We
can't go to the north, so It follows that
we must go to the south."
"Leave the canoe?"
"It's our only chance. We can cut
through the woods and come out near
this friendly bouse on tiie Richelieu.
The friar will lose our trail then, and
we'll have no more trouble with him
If he stays on tho St. Lawrence."
"There's  nothing  else for  it," said
Captain  Ephralm  ruefully.    "It's not j
my way to go by land If I can get by
water, so you must lay the course and
keep her straight, Amos."
"It Is not far, nnd It will not take
us long.   Let us get over to the south
ern bank, and we shall make a start
If madame tires, De Catlnat, we shall
take turns to carry her."
"Ah, monsieur, you cannot think
what a good walker I am! In this
splendid air one might go on forever."
"We will cross, then." In a very
few minutes they were at the other
side and had landed at the edge of the
forest. There the guns and ammunition were allotted to each man, and
hia share of provisions and of the
scanty baggage. Then, haTing paid the
Indians and having instructed tbem to
say nothing of their movemeuts, tbey
turned their backs upon tho river and
plunged into the silent woods.

A  DESERT  PERIL
The Deadly Clear Water of the Death
Valley  Pools.
"One of tbe chief dangers to travelers ln crossing such dreary and arid
wastes as the far famed Death valley
arlse3 from Ignorance as to the character of the Infrequent pools of water
along the route," said a mining engl-
ner of Denver.
"The tenderfoot, growing faint under a blazing sun, will want to quench
his intolerable thirst when he comes
to a shallow hole whose water, clear
as crystal, seems absolutely pure. He
can with difficulty be restrained from
drinking It by some experienced companion, who knows that one draft
will probably cause serious If not
fatal Illness. This water, for all its
seeming pu'lty and clearness, Is loaded
witb arsenic, and many a man has lost
his life by Its use.
Curiously enough, the only water in
the desert that Is safe to drink is foul
looking and inhabited by bugs and
snakes. When you come to a muddy
pool on the surface of which insects
are disporting themselves, however repulsive it may be, both to the eye and
palate, you may drink it with impunity, despite its looks, as a man will
who is crazy with thirst produced by
the burning sands and merciless son."
THE PALISADES.
Their Counterpart Cannot Be Found
In All the World.
The edge of the world, if such a thing
may be, lies hardly a rifle shot away
from one of the centers of the world
itself���the city of New York.
The Palisades, those mighty walls
whereon tho annals of the centuries
are graved���what an edge of the world
their lip presents to him who comes,
perhaps at night, to their rough hewn
elevation! In no other place other than
this near proximity to man and one of
his greatest cities could a physical feature so profoundly vast nnd impressive
be so hidden from the world. Their
counterpart cannot be found in all the
world, aud yet the Palisades are almost
unexploited and unknown to the globe
circling, sight hunting public that yearly traverses the continents or seas to
gaze at things less wonderful in some
distant field of nature's marvelous
achievements, for little does any one
know of these titanic walls who has
merely seen them from the Hudson.
Were they somewhere off In a land
comparatively inaccessible, reached by
a transcontinental thread of "steel, tha
guidebooks would be rich in their pictured grandeur and man would rove
far to explore them.���Philip Verrlll
Mighels in Harper's Magazine.
Superstitions of Stage Folk.
A stock actor ls apt to have a
prejudice against decorating or fixing
up his dressing room. He is certain
to get his notice shortly after he puts
his pictures on the wall and otherwise
makes the place comfortable and
homelike. Actors and managers both
have a horror of the witch lines in
"Macbeth," and they never will allow
them to be spoken, as it means a fire
in the playhouse before the twelvemonth is over. Sir Henry Irving waa
a firm believer in this superstltition,
and he would never allow the fateful
lines to bo read when he was playing
'the tragedy. I know many players
who fear to have any one pass them
on a stairway when they are entering
a theater. There are many actors who
make the sign of the cross before they
make an entrance.
Where They Forgot.
"Once, in the rooms of the Fablas
society, overlooking the fresh green
slopes of the Law Court gardens in
London, I heard George Bernard Shaw
express his thoughts about English
public schools," said a Chicago editor,
"ne attacked those schools. He said
you learned nothing in them. He told
of a young peer to whom a certain
master at Eton said:
'"I am ashamed of yon*, unable to
work out so simple a problem! Your
younger brother did It correctly an
hour ago.'
'"I am sorry, sir,' the boy replied,
���but you must remember that my
brother hasn't been at Eton as long ai
I have.'"

"Sir," says the nggrlevod customer,
approaching tho bookseller, "I have

"What is wrong?" deferentially asked the bookseller.
"I bought a set of Shakespeare front
you last year. It weighed fourteen
pounds. Yesterday I ordered a duplicate set for my son's library, and 11
only weighs thirteen pounds and nine
ounces. I'd have you understand, sir,
that there ls a city ordinance against
short weights."
Thoroughly humbled, the bookseller
made up the shortage with seven
ounces of miscellany.���Exchange.

BROKEN JN HEALTH.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Restored
Strength After Medical Treatment Had Failed.
"I can truthfully say Dr. Wilfiams'
Pink Pills did for me what one of the
best doctors in Halifax failed to do
���restored my health." This strong
atatoment is made by Mr. Wm. J.
Weaver, 172 Argyle St., Halifax. Mr.
Weaver adds:���"A few years ago I
took employment in a large factory
aa fireman. I knew the work would
be hard, and friends told me I would
never stand it, but as I was a strong
man, weighing 180 pounds, I laughed
at the idea of not being able to do
the work. Anyhow I started and
found the job a hard one indeed.
There were a number of firemen employed and men were taking and
quitting the job every few days. I
kept at tbe work for two years and
during tbat time lost 50 pounds
weight, and was a broken down man.
I could not take nny meals and often took my dinner back home with
me without touching it. When I
would be working on tbe night shift
I could not sleep in tbe day time, and
this added to my trouble. Finally I
became a total wreck and had to quit
the work. I could hardly drag myself nbout. and yet bad become so
nervous tbat I could not sit still nnd
would walk nbout the house until I
was rendy to drop. The doctor cnme
to see me every dny, and changed (he
medicine time and again, but it did
nie no good. Finally he wanted me
to go to the hospital, and at this stage
a friend cnme to stay with me overnight. While he was reading the
evening paper he came across the
testimonial of a cure wrought by Dr. '
Williams' Pink Pills. ' He said, "why
don't you try tbem, nothing else is
helping you nnd tbey may do you
eood." He went out and got me a
box at once. When this was done
I got a half dozen boxes, and before
thoy were all gone I began to feel
like a new man. I continued using
the pills for a couple of months when
I was again as well and as strong as
ever I had been in my life, and I
have not seen a sick day since. I
feel confident there is no remedy in
the world equal to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for building up a broken
down and nervous system, and for
such trouble I would strongly recommend tbem."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure sucb
eases as Mr. Weaver's because they
make tho rich, red blood that feeds
the starved nerves and tones the

Twentieth Century Epicures.
In a case that came before the bankruptcy court recently the debtor, a
youug man In the early twenties, gave
In his accounts an Item of ��G,000
which, he said, was the amount he had
lost owing to the compulsory sale of
the furniture In his flat. The original
cost of the furniture ln question Is left
to the Imagination. The truth Is that
our "golden lads" do themselves remarkably well (to use their own expression) and think that nothing In the
world ls too good for them. We are
always reading in tho papers allusions
to the luxury and extravagance of women of the smart world. Now and
then we may come across some reference to the elaboration of self indulgence In wliich the young men of our
wealthy class luxuriate. Some yenrs
since we, had a description of the
wardrobe of n New York "dude." It
appenred ln nn American paper, and
much of it had been communicated by
the young man himself, especially
Bome Information as to the prices of
the garments he affected. Not long
after a paragraph went the round of
the papers nbout a certain Italian poet
and the little comforts with which he
loved to surround himself. Thoy were
described ns in no way Inferior to
those of the New York young man. It
Is not alone In England thnt the dnndy
surrounds himself with tbe highest
products of civilization and makes a
god of his body.
The luxury of a woman of fashion
pales almost to Insignificance when
compared wltb that, for Instance, of
her brother In the guards or heir to
the family estates. The youug man who
Was ��G.000 to the bad ln consequence of
"the bankruptcy sale" of his furniture
ls a ense In point. He probably lavished between ��8.000 and ��10.000 on the
plenishing of the rooms. This ls not
much beyond the usual with young
men of the kind. Carpets nlone mnke a
large bole In ��1,000. Something very
special In wall hnngings Is proportionate In cost. Encb piece of furniture ls
a gem in its wny. The tradesmen know
the kind of customer they hnve to donl
with nud that���for the present���there
is plenty of money. They bring forth
their richest and rarest and not In
vain. The high ambition of the young
mnn is to "go one hotter" thnn any
other fellow he knows In every detail
of his surroundings. The civilized
world Is ransneked In order to provide
him with the latest refinements of costly luxuriousness In such nppolntraents
as bod nnd bnth, glass, chlun, ornaments, silver and dexterously shaded
lights. Ills florist's yearly bill would
keep two or three poor families.
As to dress, a single fact may throw
Home light on the relative values of the
young man's wardrobe and that of the
smart woman. The valet of one such
glided youth having complained to his
master that in his large and luxurious
west end flat there was uo pioper accommodation for lis clothoa, the resource of renting a second flat equally
large for the bousing of the wardrobe
was suggested and at once adopted. A
smnll room is devoted to clothes nnd
brushes and certain preparations for
tho treatment of shoe and kid nnd boot
lonther. A lnrger loom Is given to the
boots nnd shoes themselves nnd their
fnmlliar trees, nnd so on wltb tbe more
lmportnnt articles of dress. Country
clothes have spacious quarters devoted
to them. Tbey Include riding gear,
cricket and tennis suits, sporting get-
up and traveling kit Here are his
portmanteaus and traveling bags, an
imposing array. A large wicker basket
stauding among tbem elicits smiling
inquiry from the interested relatives
whom he has invited to tea and to
whom he is showing his new "diggings." "Oh, that?" he snys. "That
bnsket ought to know Its way to
France alone. It goes every fortnight
with my washing. English laundries
ruin silk things. We tried 'em. Tore
them to pieces and made the sheets
yellow In no time."
"Silk sheets?"
"Oh, yesl Ne one ever has any other now."
"And you send this huge basketful
once a fortnight?"
"Every week," be corrects us. "One
Is ou Its waj back now."
It ls Interesting to see the young
mon of tha day nt our smart restaurants, each eeated alono at oue of tbo
tables, intviit on doing himself tbor*
o.iRlily well. His whole mind seems
occupied with the menu and Its component parts.

A POISON PANIC.
Wild Wave of Fear Passes Over ths
City of Manchester.
An extraordinary panic wave has
passed over Manchester. It began in
a simple gift of sweets by an unknown
man to some school-children. Something in the taste of the sweets was
unpalatable, and a rumor quickly
spread that a stranger was going
about giving children poisoned sweets.
The police sampled some of the
sweets, and found them quite harmless; but they thought it advisable te
ask schoolmasters and mistresses to
warn the children against accepting;
any such gifts in future. The warning, if anything, only increased the
agitation ot'the mothers and children.
An Ardwick schoolboy on Friday went
to school, leaving behind him a sup
ply of milk and tea, which he was accustomed to take. A lodger at hia
mother's house volunteered to carry,
it to the school. He did so, putting
the mixture accidentally in a bottk
which had contained furniture polish.
When he arrived, he handed the bot*
tie through the school railings to a
lad, who smelt the turpentine, and
immediately announced that a maa
was giving poisoned tea to the children. The lodger explained, but a
crowd of indignant mothers assembled
and mobbed the unfortunate man,
who had to be taken to the police station, the women making strenuous ef
forts to assault him on the way.
Eventually the misunderstanding wai
cleared up, and the chapter of accidents ended.

Ten Stick Island.
In Southwest Bay, in the New Hebrides group, there is a small wooded
island of considerable height above
tho sea, although only a few hundred
yards in circumference. The story ol
its acquisition is a curious one. Sou'*
west Bay used to be considered a good
place for target practice by the British men-of-war on patrol duty there,
and this small islet was used as a
target so frequently, that it seemed in
danger of being gradually shot away.
The chief who owned it protested, and
wanted compensation. Tho captain of
a man-of-war, who understood the natives, knew that these claims would
be a ceaseless source of blackmail unless they were settled once for all; so
ho bought the island for the British
Crown, paying ten Bticks of tobacco
for it, and everyone was satisfied. The
place, since then, has been known aa
'""ten Stick Island."
A TENDERFOOT'S REVENGE
Sugar Cane Dance.
A very curious, and exceedingly
clever, dance mny be witnessed in
Fiji, called by the natives "the sugarcane meke," or sugar-cane dance. It
represents the growth of the sugarcane. In the first figure, the dancers
Bquat low on the ground, shake their
heads, shut their eyes, and murmur
slowly and softly an unintelligible
sentence. Gradually they all stand
up together, growing taller and taller,
and as they "grow" they wave their
arms, and tremble all over from ankle
to head, like the tall, tasselled cane
waving in the wind, and still they
keep on chanting louder ond louder.
The last figure represents a series of
combats meant to symbolize the exactions of the chiefs, who compel the
"kaisi," willing or unwilling, to come
and cut their crops.

in height, closely-covered with hieroglyphics of Phoenician origin. The inscription appears to relate to sun-
worship. There are signs distinctly
resembling stars, there are sets of
clearly defined liands with outstretched fingers raised as if in supplication,
them are signs in close juxtaposition
conceivably representing the sun and

what may very well be intended to be
tbe sign of a pair of horns.
Premature Burial.
The Association for the Prevention
of Premature Burial held its annual
mooting recently in London, England.
A number of startling statements were
made as to the occurrence of premature burials, and Dr. W. R. Hadwen

and 290 cases in which thoy have only
been saved from that fate by chance."

Bully of New Mexico Town Had ths
Tables Turned on Him.
The average tenderfoot ls not a coward. He simply locks ranch experience. An illustration of this fact occurred down In New Mexico several
years ago. One day a pale looking,
thin and sickly young mon alighted
from the train and put up at the little adobe hotel at Bernal Springs. The
tenderfoot walked up to the bar and
called for a bottle of soda pop.
" 'Tain't allowed to drink that sort o'
stuff out here," said a toughy. "What
you want ls a stiff drink o' red liquor.
Mr. Barkeeper, set out the plson for
this young feller." "You have the best
of me," replied the tenderfoot, "and
I'll have to drink the stuff, but I hope
the time may come when I can make
you drink my choice of liquid."
The tenderfoot raised the glass and
gulped down the whisky. Sandy had
had his way about It, and he made no
effort to comprehend the vague remark
of the stranger. The tenderfoot left
for a ranch down the Pecos the next
day after the Incident In the saloon,
and he was forgotten until one afternoon more than a year afterward a
strong, healthy looking young man
rode up to tbe hotel on a broncho,
dropped the bridle reins upon the
ground and dismounted. He bad tbe
appearance of a typical young man of
tbe range. Ills face was bronzed and
his eyes clear and penetrating. "I owe
a follow a debt which I believe I will
pay right now," the stranger said.
No sooner bad he made the remark
than he walked off ln the direction of
Sandy, who had his gun in his right
hand and was firing It into the air
every few stops. The stranger approached Sandy, pulled his gun and
unceremoniously drugged the bully up
to the saloon and led him ln that fashion up to the bar. "Get me a pan of
water and set It upon the floor," he
said to the barkeeper.
The order was complied with, Sandy
standing there meekly, wondering what
was going to happen to him. "Now,
got down on the floor and drink water
out of thnt pan like a dog," the former
tenderfoot ordered. Sandy at first refused, but when the stranger began
twirllug his gun around on his forefinger and snld the order must be obeyed
the cowed fellow unlimbered and lay
down upon tue floor and began drinking water out of the pan.
WATEHL00.
Ths Immutability of the Famous Old
Battlefield.
One of the most striking features of
a visit to the battlefield of Waterloo
today Is the Immutability of the entire
scene In which one of tbe greatest battles of history took place. Notwithstanding the many years that have
passed since the memorable day of
June IS, 1815, the entire scene of the
battle remains practically unchanged
and untouched, aud the very buildings
around which the tide of battle surged
the fiercest, save for the necessary restorations of the damage they sustained iu the conflict, remain exactly as
they were, nor has any encroachment
of building or progress marred the historic field.
The battlefield of Waterloo is an
open, undulating stretch of good farming land. On thc day of the battle the
greater part of it was covered with
crops of rye, wheat, barley and oats,
and the same crops are still grown
tbere each season. The field is Intersected by two highroads branching at
Mont St Jean, the one on the right
leading to Nlvelles, whilo that on the
left, which lay In the center of both
armies, led south to Genappe, Char-
lerol and Namur. Upon the crest of
tbe ridge which formed the first of the
allied positions a crossroad runs east
aad west. This road, on approaching
the spot where the ''Lion of Waterloo"
now stands, ran through a cut ln thc
crest some twelve .to fourteen feet
deep, and it was this point that was
known after the battle as the Hollow
Boad. Some 500 yards to the southeast of the "Lion" ls the farm of La
Haye Salnte, while about 900 yards
to the southwest stands Uougoumont,
thc old chateau, farmhouse, outbuildings, wnlled garden nnd orchard, whlcb
played such an Important part ln the
fate of the day. These buildings nre
nearly 300 years old and were built
with a view to their defense, as many
old stone loopholes still to be found
testify. ��� Robert Howard Russell in

Insomnia.
Insomnia Is the not uncommon fate
of tbe brain worker who after years of
continuous mental strain retires from
active life. TJie reason ls tbat mental
activity demands a large supply of
blood for tbe brain, and the blood vessels gradually accommodate themselves
to this large supply. But when the
hard work is over the brain does not
always realize that it needs less nourishment, and hence the condition of excessive mental activity which is what

Preserving Fruit.
There are two method's for preserving fruit; in one the fruit is cooked
in enns, in the other it is boiled In
the syrup. The first method means
slower work, but you tiius retain the
(lavor of the fruit���also the fresh, delicious odor which vanishes when
fruit is boiled.
Before proceeding with either method see to the fruit cans. A careful
housewife washes them during the
year as they are emptied, covers them
and puts them away on a shelf to be
in rendiness for the preserving season. Even then they required sterilizing be'ore being used, for tho bacteria floating everywhere in thc atmosphere require only the slightest
chance for lodgment to begin fermentation.
Still, with ordinary care it is quite
easy to have fruit keep, even it you
live in a hot southern climnte. You
hnve simply to be sure thnt the can
is perfectly clean and thnt it is airtight. To make it so, put ench can in
a wash-boiler of cold water, dissolving in it a little borax if you notice
dirt or a crust on the cans or their
lids. To keep the . cans from cracking, cover trie bottom of thc boiler
with a framework or anything which
keeps the glass from the intense heat
of the fire. Let the water come slowly to a boil, then continue at the boiling point for ten minutes. Set the
boiler back on the stove, cover it,
and allow the cans to stand in the hot
wa'er until they are needed. Rinse
thorn with fresh boiling water, and
thoy  are  then ready  to  fill.
Costiveness and its Cure.��� When
the excretory organs refuse to perform their functions properly the intestines become clogged. This is
known as costiveness and if neglected
eives rise to dnngerous complications.
Parmelee's Vegetable Pills will effect a speedy cure. At the first intimation of tbis ailment the sufferer
should procure a packet of the pills
and put. himself under a course of
treatment. The good effects of the
pills will be nlmost immediately evident.

sludge Geffe's Play With a Bragging
Fencing  Master.
A fencing master appeared in Boston
one winter in the seventeenth century
and bad erected a stage on which he
strutted up and down at certain hours,
defying any and all to engage in sword
play with bim.
After this had gone on for several
-lays and tbe man's boasts had become insufferable Judge William Gofts
nnd Edward Whalley, the famous English political refugees, disguised themselves in rustic costume and appeared
before the alleged master. Goffe held
in one hand a cheese wrapped ln a
napkin, which he used for a shield,
and carried a mop which he bad soaked in muddy water as he passed a puddle.
Thus equipped, the Judge mounted
the stage. The fencer railed at bim
for his impudence, asked him what
business he had there and ordered him
to begone. The judge stood his ground
Then the gladiator made a pass at him
with his sword to drive him off. The
Judge received the sword in his cheese
and held It there till he had drawn
the mop over the professor's face and
smeared him with mud. Another
plunge by the enraged maltre d'armes
resulted similarly, this time the Judge
poking the mop into bis eyes. This
operation was repeated a third time.
Then tbe maddened fencing master
dropped his ordinary sword tfnd grabbed up a huge broadsword. Thereupon
the Judge said:
"Stop, sir! Hitherto, yon see, I have
only played with you and not attempted to do you harm, but If you come at
me now with the broadsword know
that I will certainly take your life!"
The master was Impressed by the
firmness with which the judge spoke,
for he dropped the point of his weapon
nnd exclaimed: "Who can you be? You
must be either Goffe, Whalley or the
devil, for there wns no other man in
England that could beat me!"
NUDE STATUARY
HE  GOT THE  TICKET.
A Simple Little Errand That Made a
Lot of Commotion.
One of the most amusing accidents
imaginable happened to an old gentleman in one of our largo eastern cities.
He was asked to buy a ticket to a fireman's ball and good nnturedly compiled. The next question was what to
do with It He had two servants,
either of whom would be glad to use
it, but he did not wish to show favoritism.
Then It occurred to hlm that he might
buy another ticket and give both his
servants a pleasure. Not knowing
whore the tickets wero sold, he inquired of a policeman, and the officer
suggested that he go to the engine
house. So the old gentleman went ta
tho engine house lhnt evening, but
there was no ono In sight. He had never been ln such a place before and
stood for a moment or so uncertain
how to mako his presence known.
Presently he saw nn electric button
on thc side of tbo room, and be put his
thumb on It
The effect was electrical In every sense
of the word. Through the ceiling,
down the stnlrs nnd from every other
direction firemen came running aud
falling, the horses rushed out of their
stalls, and, ia short all tbe machinery
of a modern engine house was Instantly in motion.
Amid all this uproar stood the innocent old gentleman, who did not suspect that be had touched the fire alarm
until tbe men clamored arouud him for
Information as to the locality of the
fire.
Then be said mildly, "I should like ta
buy another ticket for the ball, If you
please."
Tbe situation wns so ludicrous that
there was a general shout of laughter,
aud the old gentleman bought his
ticket, and the engine house resumed
Its former state of quiet���Exchange.

���Loudon Chronicle.
Shocks the Sensibilities of National
Vigilance Association.
When the boardings were recently
removed from* the sculptures on the
new British Medical Association building, the Strand and Agar street, pass-
eraby gasped and immediately reported the matter to W. A. Coote, secretary of the Nation Vigilance Association. He took a look at the offending
nude statues and informed the police,
who at once ordered canvas screens
to be put up until the responsible
heads of the Medical Association could
be communicated with.
"In no other city in Europe," declared the secretary of the N. V. A.,
"are figures in sculpture of the nature shown on the building in the
Strand thrust upon the public gaze.
If photographs of the statues were
sold in the public streets or exposed
for sale in any shop, proceedings
would at once be taken. We intend,
unless the offending figures are removed, to take action and see whether or not the law is strong enough
to deal with such a display."
Said Guy Elliston, secretary of the
British Medical Association: "I cannot see anything objectionable in the
statuary. Nude figures in themselves
constitute no harm. If they were on
the ground level, and could be mutilated by ribald people it would be
different. But they are fifty fee}, from
the ground. When a police officer
came to me concerning ono of the
figures on tho Strand sido, I went to
Bee it. I failed to notice anything
wrong, suggestive, or indoccnt."
George Frampton, R.A., the famous
sculptor, snid: "I should think tho
objection is in tho suggestion put into
the figures by the minds of the persons who complain. There is nothing objectionable in the nudo. The
indecency is in tho minds of the people who are kinking at the figures.
Many nudo figures, some of them in
beautiful groups, appear on our public buildings. So long as there is no
Buggestiveness ��� why should they be
termed indecent?"
Walter Crane, the well-known artiBt,
took a similar view: "I have not Been
the statues, and do not know who the
sculptor is, nnd I can, therefore, express no opinion on their artistic
merit. So far, however, as the principle involved is concerned, I am entirely in favor of frank sex representation in art."
Ceylon's Land-Leech
It is nearly always the case that exceedingly beautiful countries are overrun by different kinds of pests. Beautiful Ceylon has mosquitoes, said to
be the most adroit and audacious in
the world, and snakes, and a thousand more plagues of poor human beings, but the worst of them all is a
species of leech. The Ceylon land-
leech is a thin creature about two
inches long, and very nimble and
flexible; it will crawl up a man's leg,
and traveling underneath the clothing, will climb as high as the throat.
They clo not crawl like the innocent
loech that was known to medicine,
but rear themselves up on their tail
to watch for prey and walk off to attack it with amazing rapidity. In
walking through tho jungle hosts of
them may be seen by tlie roadside,
where they wait to victimize cattle.
Horses, it is said, are driven half
wild by them, as also are palanquin-
bearers and coolies, whose bare legs
are thoir favorite resort, the men's
hands being too engaged to pull them
off. The leeches may be seen hanging round thoir ankles, from which
tiny trickles of blood run over the
foot.

ixainple; if every foot of land in his
community is worth more because he
lives there; then the loss of his property cannot materially shrink his
inventory.
If you have learned to be rich
without money; if you have, by the
iiiltivatlon of your mental powers,
gathered to yourself a treasure of
indestructible wealth; if, like the
bee, you have learned the secret nf
'xtrncting honey from tlie thistle ns
.veil ns from the rose, you will look
upon your losses ns a mere incident,
*iot so vory important to tlie larger
and fuller life.
It gives a souse of immense satisfaction to think there is something
within us greater than the wenlth
we acquire or our material pursuits;
that there is something about us
better than our career, better than
living-getting, money-getting, fiinie-
getting; that there is something wliich
will survive the fire, the flood, or tho
tornado which sweeps away our property, which will survive detraction,
persecution, cnluuiny; something thnt
will outlast even the dissolution of
the body itself. Thnt is, nobility of
.hnrncter, the sweetness nnd light
which have helped people, whicli have
made the world a little better place
to live in.���Success Magazine.

The Bajus of Borneo.
Kina Balu, the highest mountain in
Borneo, rises nearly 14,000 feet above
the sea level. Among the tribes to be
found on the mountain are a very
strange race of people called the Bajus. They trade in camphor, wax,
gutta-percha, and india-rubber. The
great source of their wealth is, however, the edible birds' nests, beloved
by Chinese gourmets. One of the
most peculiar of their customs is the
christening of a child. A featber is
inserted up the baby's nostril, to tickle it; if it sneezes it is a good sign,
but if not the ceremony is put off
until another day. One of their moat
inhuman customs is that when their
women are dying they are taken to
the woods, and left in a hastily built
hut, where only the meanest of their
slaves may wait on them.
Eucharistic Congress.
Following the Pan-Anglican, another great congress is to assemble in
London this summer. This is the Eucharistic Congress, which was first
held at Avignon in 1382. It will be
the greatest gathering of Roman
Catholic ecclesiastics ever seen in
England. The Duke of Norfolk is
president of the reception committee,
which is making preparations to provide suitable accommodations for the
large number of clergy who will attend. There will be present several
cardinals from the United States,
Rome, Spain, Germany, France, Belgium and other countries. The special preacher at Westminster Cathedral will be Cardinal Gibbons.

Rat Crusade  Is On.
The now Society for thc Destruction
of Vermin has started a series of competitions among rat and sparrow clubs.
Prizes are offered to the clubs and individuals who destroy thc greatest
number of rats in a year. Every competitor must kill 300 rats to qualify
for an award. It is estimated that
there are from 40,000.000 to 50,000,000
rats in England, and that tho damage
to property amounts to several millions.
Chinese Monasteries.
Many Chinese monasteries are endowed with land or a tribute of rice,
but seldom so as to be self-supporting,
and the monks, armed with gongs, go
down into the cities to beg for sustenance.
Their Papers Poor.
One of tho arguments used against
oqual suffrage in England is that the
papers published exclusively for women show them to be unfit for the
ballot.
A Novel Prize.
An odd little prize, which may easily
be made, Is a hanging pincushion forns
ed of gilded mussel shells in which
have been pasted small pincushions
covered with bits of soft bright silk
flowered ribbon or velvet.
Each of these tiny shells Is then attached to a ribbon cut in different
lengths and the lot of them fastened
together at top with a gay rosette, with
crocheted or gilt ring for hnngor.
These make attractive little prizes fof
hostesses who wish to entertain at
cards or game parties at seashore hotels or cottages.

LIVING IN  LONDON.
St In Not n Geo,! Plitoc* Pot n Mnn ot
Small Income.
An Ameiicnn who ln tlm classical
language of his country is at present
"located" In London wants to know
.whether any city in the world is quite
mo niggardly as our town. Ho hns
been going tho round ol' the London
restaurants und hns encountered In the
management of them si spirit which
distresses hlm. "There Is, to lie-in
with," he snys, "a charge of from twopence to sixpence for guarding your
bnt and cout in tho cloakroom, and a
tip In addition is expected. You want
to wash your hands���another twopence
or another sixpence and another tip.
You tnko up the menu, nnd, behold
thore ls nn intimation that n chnrg? of
threepence each person will bo mnde
ander thc guise of table money.' The
chnrgc varies according to the nature
of the place. Threepence is the lowest
nnd sixpence perhaps the average. At
a grent many restaurants it Is 1 shilling and in at least two that I havo visited ls. Od. The only difference Js
thnt in the lower priced restaurants It
is cnlled 'tnble money' and in the higher priced ones placed under tho captivating heading of 'couvert.' To my
mind, an entrance fee frankly demanded nt the door would be much loss offensive than to find yourself asked at
the ond of a dinner to pay for the trouble and expense of cleaning up the cutlery you have used."
His conclusion of the whole matter is
.that "London lives by imposing n fixed
tariff on the accessories that in every
other city I have ever been to nrs
thrown in gratis," and he thinks that
being a gentleman Is one of the most
expensive professions nn Englishman
can have. He declares It to bo an utter flpluslnn that London Is a cheap
place to live In. "For the poor man,"
he snys. "the man whoso Income Is less
than ��300 u yenr, thorp is no city where
leys can be had In the way of comforts
and even tlie necessities of life. In
New York it is only tho luxuries that
cost. The expenses of everyday living
may b<* ,is great or as smnll os one
cores to innko tbem, New York, ln
fact, is laid out for the poor man.
From tho transportation system to the
price of such fundamental charges on
the household treasury ns conl, ico,
fuel, meat, bread, milk and fruit, nlmost everything conspires to bring him
in a good return for a vory smnll out-
Iny. All these things are cheaper in
���Now York than iu London."���Loudon
Chronicle.
OAd Cat Fnctn.
A. good cut���the kind you want to
nave in the house, If any���will bave a
round, stubby pus nose, full, fiit che-eka
and upper lip nr.d a well developed
bump on tho toj^of tho hend between
the ears, betokening good nature. A
sleepy cat that purs a good deal is
apt to be playful and good naturcd.
By all means to be avoided ls a cat
with thin, sharp noso and twitching
ears. It must be remembered nlso that
a good mouser is uot necessarily a gentle or desirable pet. Although any good
cat will catch mice if she ls uot overfed, quick, full, expressive eyes generally betoken a good mouser. Thc great
mistake and probably the most common one In tho curo of domestic cats
is overfeeding, particularly too much
moat. In wild life the cat has exercise
which enables her to digest her food.
In the lazy house life the same full
feeding leads to stomach troubles and
to lit.-).

It may he a surprise to many
people, suys Tho Fenny Magazine, to
know that a unique'system ol signalling exists among policemen, and,
indeed, one might lit* brought riuily
mto contact with our guardians oi
the peace for many years and still
know nothing ol' it. The reason ia
tiiat the signs in uso must, in tha
very nature of the case, be unobtrusive, and not easily detected by thoso
not in tlio know. Tho signs appear
to bo quite ordinary movements ot
the arms and hands, and Seem to tho
passer-by to bo of no special signili-
cance. Sometimes a policeman may
.,_ seen to fold his arms in a perfectly natural manner, but if the observer watches closely he muy soo
that tho index linger of ono or other
of his hands is pointing to eomo
person in the vicinity. This is his
method of indicating to a comrade,
nr it may bo to a' plain-clothes detective, that a pickpocket or other
suspected person is near and should
be kept under observation. ThiB signal is especially useful whin tho
constable who gives it is engaged in
controlling a crowd or in lining the
route of a procession, for he can
thus indicate to a detective the presence of anyone he suspects, and
cause attention to bo drawn to him.
When on duly, constables give warning of tho approach of the "governor" (inspector) or "skipper" (sergeant) in various ways. Touching
tlie second but ton of tho tunic with
the right hand is a sign that tho
Inspector lu Bearing tho spot. Tho
approach of the Borgoant is indicated
hy placing a linger on the armlet.
Drawing the hands slightly awny
from the side conveys to a const nbio
US clearly as words, "I have not seen
thc Inspector." Should a constnbla
be snnio distance down a side street
when the sergeant passes along tho
end of the thoroughfare, a ship on
the thigh by tho constable Indicates
"All's well!" and eaves tho timo ol

Sontlicy on  Wordsworth,
Of Wordsworth, Bouthey writes ln
1S08, says Harold S. Scott in The Atlantic: "Ho has written a masterly
poem called 'The White Doe of Rilston
Hall; or. The Fate of the Nortons.' The
poem is incomparably fine. It would
arnuso you to hoar how ho talks of hip
own production. His entire and intense
selfishness exceeds anything you could
havo conceived. I nm more amused at
it than offended; not being sufficiently
attached to him to feel pain at perceiving his faults, and yet respecting him
far too much on the average of his
qualities to be disgusted. It ls so pure
nnd unmixed a passion in him that Ben
Jonson would have had him in a play
had ba been his contemporary."
