be announced probably next issue.
Now is the time of the year when the
wild berries ripen and the thoroughbred I
hobo    bobbles into     our sanctum   on
crutches to present his compliments and
liil " caid."
That era of prosperity awaited by the
good people of Nakusp has come at last.
There's a reason. Nakusp has the
goods, and si-ttlers are arriving by every
boat to lake np future orchards. Tlie
real estate and fiuit binds men of Winnipeg knew a good thing when they
saw it and to say that the new arrivals
are ploastd with the eoil, location and
possibilities of fair Nakusp and its environments is to put it very mildly.
It looks as if the people of this province will have a Color problem on tlieir
bands within the next generation. The
inllux of Japanese is a sinning such
gigantic proportions that it behooves
every man to interest himself in discovering a method of averting the great
danger. A month ago there were not
less than 5,000 iittle brownnien in the
province ; two weeks t'go a bunch of 400
came in on one day ; and according to
dispatches from the coast, 1,177 cooiits
attempted to land last week, and thousands more are awaiting transportation
from Honolulu ti this land of milk and
homy. To Ottawa we must look for
constitutional legislation to solve the
tickli-h difficulty���ticklish because .Lilian and the mother country are allies,
but Ottawa at the present time is too

strawberry functions lo pay any attention to thc needs tf the Great West be-

Tbe editor of the Calgary Chinook
has been taking the wrong kind of dope.
There's blood ill his lye, minder in his
heart, wheels in Ids grey matter, and
a "big slick" in bis mitt. He has a
hunch that he is the one man who i*1 to
go down to posteiiiy as tbe savior of
the north-west, anil lie forthwith throws
down the gauntlet to all and 'undl'y
'���lumber combines" to come up lo have
the stuffing poundid ont of tbem. In
monster black be.v.Mines on the front
page of bis literary bubble 1 e gives
"Fair Warning to Lumber Combines,"
and goes on to remark :
" After careful consideration I have
decided Ihat if the price of lumber is
not rcduc-d to a proper and just hasie
before August 3lst, I shall immediately
a-k the consent of the Attorney General
of Alberta to lay an information against
every lumber manufacturer and rrtaii
lumber dealer in Alberta, who aio known
j to be members of these illegal combines."
And what do yon suppose the Attorney general of Alberta will savin answer to he of lhe kinked topnot? Why
semething like this: "My dear little
misinformed ink slinger, you are in a
very bad way. Try lots of frcsli air
and exercise, and the "jim-jams" will
depart in company with the hosts of
pink devils in tin hats who are now
dancing a pas do quatre on your eyelashes. Failing, ty a rest at Halcyon
Hot Springs."
But our friend says be " fully realizes
the seriousness of tlie step be is taking
and that he has waited patiently for
Bonio time."   Cf oonrie, they all do.
He ulso adds: "I have considered it
my duty to give you fair wnrniig and
time to ndjuit inatUrs, but remember
that thu lime limit is August 81st at 12
o'. lock noon."
That savors very much of "this account is loig pa*>t ov. nine," or, "I shall
immediately p'ace tbe bill for collection
in the hands of n.y solicitor, " but the
last quarter of the moon fades away on
the 30th prox., and eie noon Saturday
is reached, we feel assured our friend
will feel better if be will only keep ont
of the sun, nnd refrain from reading the
curi ent issue of the Calgary Eye Opener.
The Movie Leader rises to remark,
under the caption of " Where is Peck
MacSwain ? "--
" When the editor of the Leader went
east some three weeks ago, he left the
paper in charge of Mr. J. Peck Mac
Swain, famed tho world over as a
printer, poet and philosopher. But
Peck's stay at the helm was brief, and

Wc venture to assert that of all the
newspapers which find tlieir ways to
the desks of B.C. editors, the first to be
reached for is the Nelson Daily News.
Ko, gentle peruser, this is not " taffy."
In or out of season���that is politically���'
the News has ft charm peculiarly its
own. Its utterances are powerful and
can lid, perhaps too much of the latter
thrown in to suit us at timi s, and withal, to the point and influential. If tbe
Nelson News is as popular in ita home
town as it is on tlie outside it should be
a great money maker, but we often le-
flcct that were Deane to give the people
of Nelson value for money received, it
would be a pretty punk daily sheet
diihed up. We but echo the sentiment
of interior criti s when we remark,
'ti. a credit to ft city of Nelson's propor-'hfi has a pretty  gool draw-  to a lull

What if tbe doctor did get a lemon-
Do you know that the people of the
prairies who arc howling about "lumber
coiubiues" are never known to mention
"niteat trusts," They are too wise.
The high price of lumber hurts them
���the high price of flour and grain
doesn't. Man wants but little here below, primarily bread, next shelter. We
get it in the neck first, tlie piaiiie
farmer next, and the C.P.R. gets the
over,���and the profit.
' Some drummers are awful liars, and
mean enough to sing hallelujah over a
dead toad. We have in mind one of
this fraternity, who on a rocint visit to
Sandon bellied up to the bar and
clmbbed around for seventeen beers and
a pocketful of cigars���all gleaned on tbe
bulling in process; and jot when he
struck ths next town following morning
he said then* was nothing doing at this
burg, in fact it was deader than a wet
Sunday. Wheu a deadbeat muses thus,
it is t me the local paper handed him a
bouquet. Besides, its ton for tt dollar

Those who questioned our seriousness
in remarking sortie time b ok, thut Alfred Shtubb, tho English long-distance
champion, could for any distance between a mile and twelve show a clean
pair of heels lo any runner on this continent, may find food for reflection in
the fact that he is in the S.uUs and
anxious to get on a mutch with either
Sherring or Longboat; also that at Boston on July 33 last, he lowered the
American professional iccord at the
Locust street grounds against a number
of the best runners ill this section, and
being pressed hard be went the distance
in 9 minutes 34 8-5 seconds. The old
record wasl) minutes 88 seconds made
by Jim Grant in 1890. The track which
Shrubb run on is 8 laps to the mile and
wus not in lhe best condition. Our
ability to judge wus questioned when
we remarked that Shrubb would break
uot less than three existing American
records before, he returned to tlie old
While the Snndon branch of thc W.
F.M. did not indulge in any combined
procession to celebrate the acquittal of
Haywood, there was much hand-shaking
und mnny toasts drank to the health of
Judge Wood, the jtny, and the man
who bad come unscathed through as
vile a plot as was ever conceived by
the brain of man. Looking at it as
one may, it, was a direct attack upon
organized labor, and taking into consideration that this man's life would be
forfeited if tlie jury could have been
shown that an inner circle existed, it
is a glorious victory for the workers.
With the arrayed forces of wealth and
unscrupulous cunning clamouring for
tliis man's blood, it is little sboit of
miraculous that ho should come through
the terrible ordeal unseorched. But the
prosecution butted up against truth,
and that will ever prevail. The many
links of evidence which weie to be
welded into a chain to drag this man
to the place of execution proved useless,
for in no essential po:ntof Ban-abas'
story could they bo connected. And tho
judge, honest man, so directed the jury ;
aud they, go al men and true, did their
duty fearlessly m pronouncing for Truth.
And now the question aiis-os: What
will they do witli tbe self-confessed
many times murderer, Harry Orchard?
Surely in tin's age of graft and class wai
none will be found who will espouse his
release. 'Ilie "chair" is too respectable
for him, the hangman's tope tco delicate
a necklace. However we are quile prepared for any old bogey being trotted
out, and will all wink knowingly when
lhe morning papers will announce in
big letters in a few months that Harry
Orchard bin died in jail. Something
like this will be read with interest ill
the paper*..
"On going to tho cell of harry Orchard, this morning, Warder Fakenbosh
was horrified to find the stark body of
the murderer of ex-Governor Sluenberg,
lying flat upon the cold slabs of the
prison floor. It was known that Bince
the famous sensational trial bis health
had been none of tbe best, but it was
never for one moment imagined that
his days, yea even hours were numbered,
and thnt remonclesi grim death even
then held a mortgage threateningly
above him. However, it has come, nnd
although some there will now be who
will regret he has cheated the executioner, it is the consensus of opii ion that
things are best as they have happened,"
etc., etc., elc.
Then will follow a few dm later, how
"tho lifeless remains of all that was
pristine were laid to rest in the precincts
of the jail. Owing to its being strictly
against the rules of the penitentiary to
admit relatives friends or press-rep liters
to the interment, the obsequies were
conducted in the pretence of tbe governor and a slate official," etc., etc.
Then when the affair has blown over
what will happen? Oichard, yet on top
of the ground, will be given a roll of
bills and told to skin���pei baps to Canada, when be might perform Iho old
trie's of claiming u Onn dian'       lection

���J&&8  kwitsM. I****. ��sr -Ml
mllE next morning Aunt Fanny
bad a bard time of it. Her
mistress was petulant; there
was uo sunshine iu the bright
August day as It appeared to her. Toward dawn, after she had counted
many millions of black sheep Jumping
backward over a fence, sbe bad fallen
asleep. Aunt Funny obeyed her usuul
Instructions ou this luckless morning.
It was Beverly's rule to be called every morning at 7 o'clock. But how
was bor attendant to kuow that the
graceful young creature, who bad kicked the counterpane to tlie foot of the
bed and bad mauled the pillow out of
all shape, had slept for less than thirty
minutes? How wus she to kuow thut
the Hushed face and frowu were born
In the course of a night of distressing
perplexities? She knew only that the
sleeping beauty wbo lay before her
was the fairest creature In all the universe. For some minutes Aunt Fanny
stood off aud admired the rich youthful
glory of the sleeper, prophetically reluctant to disturb her happiness. Then
she obeyed the Impulse of duty and
spoke the summoning words.
"Wha���what time is It?" demanded
the newcomer from the land of Nod,
stretching her fine young body with a
splendid but discontented yawn.
"Seben, Miss Bev'ly. Wha' time do
yo' s'pose hit Is? Hit's d' reg'lah time,
o' co'se. Did yo' all bave a uice sleep,
honey?" and Aunt Fanny went blissfully about tbe business of tbo hour.
"I didn't sleep a wink, confound it,"
grumbled Beverly, rubbing her eyes
and turning on her back to glare up at
the tapestry above tho couch.
"Yo' wasp,' wlnkln' any. when Ah
rust eolue into de room, leuime teb
yo'," cackled Aunt Fanny, with caustic freedom.
"See here, now. Aunt Fanny, I'm not
going to stand any lecture from you
this morning. When n fellow hasn't
slept a"���
"Who's a-lecturln' anybody, Ah'd lak
to know? Ah'm jes' tellin' yo' what
yo' was a-doln' when Ah came into de
room. Yo' was a-sleepln' p'etty doggone tight, lemme tell yo'. Is yo' goiu'
out fo' yo' walk beftV b'eakfus', honey?
'Cause If yo' Is, yo' all 'II be oblee*-*_>d
to climb out'u dat baid mngbty quicklike.   Yo' baf is ready, Miss Bev'ly."
Beverly splashed the water with unreasonable ferocity for a few minutes,
trying to enjoy a diversion that had
not fulled ber until this morning.
"Aunt Fanny," she announced after
looking darkly through her window
into the mountulns above, "if you
can't brush my hair���ouch!���any easier
than this I'll have some one else do
It, that's all. You're a regular old
"Po' 111' honey," was all the complacent bear suld in reply, without ul-
terlng her methods iu the least.
"Well," said Beverly threateningly,
with a shake of her head, "be careful,
that's all.   Have you beard the news?"
"Who' uews, Miss Bev'ly?"
"We're going back to Washiu'ton."
"Thank de Lawd!   Wheu?"
"I don't know. I've just this Instant
made up my mind. I think we'll start
���let's see, tills is the Oth of August.
Isn't it? Well, look and see If you
don't know, stupid! The 10th? My
gooduess! Where has the time gone,
auyway? Well, we'll start some time
between the llth nnd the 12th."
"Of dis mouf, Miss Bev'ly?"
"No. September. I want you to
look up a time table for me today. We
must see about the trains."
"Dey's on'y one leavln' heah dally, an'
hit goes ut 0 iu de mo'nin'. Oue train

"I'm sure, Aunt Fanuy, It ls their

"P'raps dey -nought be runnin' n

said Beverly.
You needn't do that,"
"Put it on my dressiug
table. I'll attend to it."
"Wha's become o' de geminan 'at wo'
hit ln de fust place? Ah ain' seen him
fo' two���three days."
"I'm sure I don't kuow. He's probably asleep. That class of people never
lose sleep over anything."
" 'E's er pow'ful good lookin' pus-
son," suggested Aunt Fanny. Beverly's
eyes brightened.
"Oh, do you think so?" she said, quite
Indifferently. "What are you doiug
with that hat?"
"Takin' out de featheh���jes' as"���
"Well, leave it alone. Dou't disturb
my things, Aunt Fuuuy. How many
times must I tell you"���
"Good Lawd!" wus all that Aunt
Fanny could sny.
"Don't forget about tbe time tables,"
said Beverly as sue sallied forth for
her walk iu the park.
In tbe ufternoon she went driving
witli Princess Yetive and the youug
Duke of Mizrox, upon whose Innocent
and sufficiently troubled heud she wus
heaping secret abuse because of the
uews be brought. Later Count Marlanx appeared at the castle for his first
lesson in poker. He looked so sure of
himself that Beverly hated him to the
point of desperation. At the same time
she was eager to loam how matters
Btood. Wilh Z____.n*>   Thfl maSOat*__i _"__w___
stliriiung iffeTher lietM, 'v'ffleiT by' Its
ridiculous shadow of mercy. She knew
him well enough by this time to feel
convinced that Baldos would have to
account for his temerity sooner or
later. It was like the cat and the helpless mouse.
"lfs too hot," she protested, when he
announced himself ready for the gam".
"Nobody plays poker when It's 92 In
the shade."
"But, your highness," complained the
count, "war may break out any day. I
cannot concede delay."
"I think there's a game called 'shooting craps,'" suggested she serenely.
"It seems to me It would be particularly good for warriors. You -could be
shooting something all the time."
He went away ln a decidedly Irascible frame of mind. She did not know
It, but Baldos was soon afterward set
to work ln the garrison stables, a most
loathsome occupation, In addition to his
duties as a guard by night.
After mature deliberation Beverly set
herself to the task of writing home to
her father. It was her supreme Intention to convince hlm that she would
be off for the States In an amazingly
short time. The major upon receiving
the letter three weeks later found nothing ln It to warrant the belief that sbe
was ever coming home. He did observe, however, that sho had but little
use for the army of Graustark and
was especially disappointed in the set
of men Yetive retained as her private
guard. For the life of her Beverly
could not have told why she disapproved of the guard lu general or In
particular, but she was conscious of
the fact after the letter was posted
that she had said many things thut
might have been left unwritten. Besides, It was not Baldos' fault that she
could not sleep. It was distinctly
her own. He had nothing to do with
"111 bet father will be glad to hear
that I am coming home," sbe said to
Yetive after the letter was gone.
"Oh, Beverly, dear, I hate to hear of
your going," cried the princess. "When
did you tell him you'd start?"
"Why���oh���er���let me see, when did
I say? Dash mo, as Mr. Anguish
would say, I dou't believe I gave a
���late. It seems to me I said soon;
that's all."
'*'You don't know how relieved I am,"
exclaimed Yetive rapturously, and Beverly was In high dudgeon because of
the implied reflection. "I believe you
are In a tiff with Baldos," went on Yetive airily.
"Goodness! How foolish you can be
at times, Yetive!" wus what Beverly
gave buck to her highness the Princess
of Graustark.
Late in tbe evening couriers came ln
from tbe Dawsbergen frontier with reports which mated considerable excitement In castle aud army circles,
Prince Gabriel himself bad been seen
In tlie northern part of his domain, in
compauied by a large detachment of
picked soldiers. Lorry set out that
very night for the frontier, happy In
the belief that sometbiug worth while
was about to occur. General Marlaux
Issued orders for the Edelweiss army
corps to mass beyuud tne soutneru
gates of the city the next morning.
Commands* were also sent to the outlying garrisons. There was to be a
general movement of troops before the
end of the week. Graustark was not
to be caught napping.
Long after tbe departure of Lorry
and Anguish tbe princess sat on the
balcony with Beverly and the Countess Dagmar. They did not talk much.
The mission of tiiese venturesome
young American husbands was full of
danger. Something ln the air had told
their wives'that tbe first blows of war
were to be struck before they looked
again upon the men they loved.
"I think we have been betrayed by
some one," said Dagmar after an almost interminable silence. Her companion did not reply. "The couriers
say that Gabriel knows where we are
weakest at the front and that he knows
our every movement. Yetive, there ls
a spy here after all."
"And that spy has access to the very
heart of our deliberations," added Beverly pointedly. "I say this ln behalf of
the man whom you evidently suspect,
countess. He could not know these
"I do not say tb*.*> he does know,
Miss Calhoun, but it is not beyond reason that he may be the go-between, the
means of transferring Information from
the main traitor to the messengers who
await outside our walls."
"Oh, I don't believe it!" cried Beverly
"I wonder if these things would have
happened If Baldos had never come to
Edelweiss," mused the princes*. As
though by common Impulse, both of
the Graustark women placed their
arms about Beverly.
"It's because wt have so much at
���take, Beverly, dear," whispered Dagmar. "Forgive me if I have hurt
Of course Beverly sobbed a little in
the effort to convince them that she did
not care whom they accused if he
proved to be tbe right man ln the end.
They left her alone on tbe balcony.
For an hour after midnight she sat
there and dreamed. Every one was
ready to turn against Baldos. Even
she had been harsh toward him, for
had she not seen him relegated to the
most obnoxious of duties after promising him a far different life? And now
whet was he thinking of her? Ills descent from favor had followed upon
the disclosures which made plain to
each the identity of the other. No
doubt he was attributing his degradation in a sense to the fact that she no
longer relished bis services, having
seen a romantic little ideal shattered
by his firm assertions. Of course she
knew that Genera) Marlanx was alone
instrumental ln assigning nnn lo 'he
unpleasant duty he now observed, but

Seized by a sudden Inspiration she

an umbrella and ventured out upon the

The Famous Ancient Statue In the
Louvre at Paris.
The Venus of Milo In tbe Louvre,
Paris, Is supposed by some to be tbo
work of Alexandras, one of tbe Asiatic
Greek sculptors. It is said that the
base of the slutue beurlng the artist's
name was destroyed for the purpose of
causing tbe kiug of France to believe
tbat the work was more ancient than
it really was.
It was discovered on the Island of
Mllo In 1820 by a peasant. It was In
a uiche lu a wall which had been
burled for years. The Marquis of Ul-
verc bought It aud gave It as a present
to Louis XVIII. of France. It ls made
from two blocks of marble joined above
tbe drapery which envelops the legs.
As it now stands it has two blemishes,
which have been repaired by modern
artists. The tip of the nose was bro-
keu when it was found aud also the
foot which projects beyond the drapery.
In point of fact, it has a great deal
more resemblauce to a goddess than
to a beautiful woman. At one time It
was dressed In clothes of a modern
sort, and the effect was anything but
pleasing. The figure of tbe statue ls
not at all adapted to modem clothes.���
Why He Did Not Marry.
As a reason for not marrying
Brahms once wrote to a friend: "At
tbe tittle when I should have wished to
marry, my compositions were either
hissed at or at any rate very coolly

and tbat sooner or later the page
would be turned, and ln unmarried
solitude I never really took my reverses to heart. But to be questioned

five years, nnd I am not out a penny

German Experts Who Investigate
Their System   Loud   In   Praises.
A special German police mission
has been visiting Scotland Yard to
compare tbe London detective and police methods with those of I'erlin.
The visitors huve been given every
opportunity for an insight into Metropolitan police methods, nnd have beeu
personally conducted by experienced
detectives over all parts of London.
As the outcome of their investigations the Gorman delegates have declared London to be "tbe best policed
city in the world."
I'erlin is known as "a city of police," for officialdom there is in full
control, so Scotland Yard authorities
accept this opinion as one of the greatest compliments ever paid them.
The German visitors were shown all
over New Scotland i'urd, and taken
at night to the "sights" of tbe West
End and down into the Hast End
In the lowest lodging hcuses and
criminal haunts tliey saw for themselves how very quietly and expeditiously the London policeman works.
Marvelous  System.
Our marvelous system of traffic control aroused their admiration, and
they were astonished to find how
popular the police are, in spite of
their authority.
"Tbe power of the police in Germany is far greater than yours, but
their success is not so great," snid one
of the German visitors in discussing
bis experiences.
"You enn hardly accomplish anything in Berlin without consulting our
police and obtaining their permission.
"The district police inspector has to
pass and sign your insurance papers,
and if you engage or discharge a servant you hnve to supply n German
police with name, grade, nationality
and religion.
"In London the police art, tar less
oflicious, and the relations between
them und the people tbey protect
seem to be most cordial."
Dunne tbe lust few years the London police have provided hints for
the chief cities of the world. Special
missions hnve come from France,
Russia, Switzerland, Spain and the
United States, nnd in each case the
visitors have admitted tbe superiority
of English police methods.

Sir John Tenniel, Veteran Punch Ar*
tist, Celebrates 87th Birthday.
Sir John Tenniel, the famous Punch
cartoonist, wbo celebrated his eighty-
soventb birthday the other day, is still
a line military-looking man, with all
his faculties intuct and as keen a
mind us when be drew his first cartoon, says M. A. P. At n very early
age he displayed a marked talent ior
drawing, althougn his greut nmbition
us a small boy was to be a circus
clown! That interesting period passed, however, ho made up his mind
to become nn artist, and he wns only
sixteen when his first picture wns exhibited. Henceforth he progressed
steadily, and gained wide-spread
praise for some illustrations to "Aesop's Fables," which were so ndmir-
ed by Douglas Jerrold that when
Richard Doyle resigned from the staff
of Punch, that famous wit advised
Murk Lemon to give young Tenniel
a chance. The advice was acted upon,
and in 1851 the future Knight began
his fifty years' connection with Tbe
London' Charivari, After thnt. all was
plain sailing, and in a comparatively
short, time his name was known all
over Engla*)! Among bis many admirers was the late Prince liismarck,
who became the possessor of one ol
the artist's oriirinnl sketches. In 18!)*'!
Tenniel received his Knighthood, and
his retirement from Punch came in
1901. Apart from his work for thai
famous paper, nothing that he ever
did was cleverer than his illustrations to Lewis Carroll's "Alice in
Wonderland" and "Through the
Looldng-gilSS." Sir John lives quiet
ly in n pretty bouse near Maid a Vale
where, surrounded by his favorite
pictures, he enjoys a well-earned re
King  Edward's  Perquisites.
Among tlie most curious of his Majesty's perquisites is his right to every
whale or sturgeon captured on tlie
coast of the United Kingdom and
brought to land. Both of these perquisites date back to the days of the
.Norman Kings, and it appears that
in the case of the whale the monsters
���were divided between the Sovereign
and hia consent, tho Queen taking tbe
head in order that her wardrobe
might be replenished with the whalebone needed for the stiffening of ber
royal garments.
Another of the King's perquisites
i. a certain number of magnificent
cashmere shawls, which are despatched to him every year from the kingdom of Cashmere. They vary in value,
as a rule, from JC60 to ��250 apiece.
Another cliiss of royal purveyor is
called upoti to present annually a
tablecloth, while from other sources
again he is entitled to an annual contribution of such varied "tips" as
white doves, white hares, currycombs,
fire tongs, scarlet hosiery, nightcaps,
knives, lances and crossbows. Moreover, at the coronation, the Lord of
the Manor of Addington must present to the Sovereign a "dish of pottage" composed of "almond mils,
brawn of capons, sugar, Bpices, chickens parboiled and chopped." At ilie
same ceremony the Lord of the Manor
of Haydon is obliged by virtue of
his tenure from the Crown to present the monarch with a towel, tho
Lord of the Manor of Worksop giving the Sovereign a "right-handed
glove. These are only a few of the
various perquisites to which King
Edward is entitled by tradition and

Man   Killed While   Posing as Victim
In a Railway Wreck.
The rehearsal for bioscope purposes
of a "thrilling train-wrecking scene,"
on the Brighton railway at Purley
England, has had a tragic ending.
William Zeiter, 48 years of age, of
Croydon, who wns injured while the
"plot" waa being carried out, died
4n  Croydon  Hospital.
The accident has also led to tin
suspension of the engine-driver and
fireman of the train, which played sf
important a pari in the "scene." while
the action of Mr. Bromley, the stn
tionmaster at Stoat's Nest Station, who
is alleged to be implicated in the mat
ter, is to be inquired into.
Performer's Death.
The rehearsal was arranged by the
proprietors of a film company of Croydon, to whom it occurred that the in
cidents leading up to a train wreck
would prove an excellent show. Ac
eordingly a small party journcved to
Purley in order to pose for a picture
The performers were a suppose*.

villains, an engine-driver, and a doe
It waa arranged that sleepers sbnub'
be place on the line in order to wreck
the train, that the signalman should
detect the miscreants nt work, and
rush upon them. As the result of an
[attempt to foil their scheme, he was*
to be bound, placed on the rails, nnd
left to his fat**.

uot been of sufficient value to cause
excitement, and thia, together with
the fact that Kuropean and American
gem merchants have adjudged them
as inferior quality, has discouraged
exploration. Sapphires have been
found in various places, many of the
yellow and green being equal to any
produced elsewhere. Recently $l,'250
was refused for a rough yellow sapphire, and a large blue one, with a
yellow centre, weighing two and one-

Speaking truth is like writing fair

a matter of will than of habit, and I
doubt if any occasion can be trivial
which permits the practice and formation of such a habit. To speak and

as meritorious as to speak it under
intimidation or penalty. And it is a

When Done With Ordinary Camera
They Show as Lines, Not Specks.
It ls an easy matter merely to photograph stars. The trouble Is to picture tbem as points and not as streaks,
for as tbe earth rotates It carries the
photographic apparatus with it, and
tbe light from tbe star makes a line,
while the astronomer wants a point
He must therefore devise a machine
that will counteract the movement of
tbe earth and so keep the light steadily
in the same place on the plate. Elaborate clockwork must turn tbe lens
backward to keep it on the Btar and at
the satue rate as that at which the
sarth moves forward.
Au astronomer at the Yerkes observatory at Williams Bay, Wis., Is quoted
In St. Nicholas as saying that "many
of the most Important results of astronomy hnve been derived from the
use of an ordinary camera. On a clear
night point one of these toward the
north pole, aud it will be found after
au exposure of oue or two hours tbat
the stars which lie near the pole bave
Srawn arcs of circles upon the plate.
This is due to the fact that the earth
Is rotating upon its ails at such a rate
as to cause every star In the sky to
appear to travel through a complete
circle once In twenty-four hours.
The mere act of photographing Is not
much more difficult than a short exposure out of the window of a moving
car.   Any one can try It
Let the exposure be for at least Ave
minutes If the camera ls pointed over-
bead and for at least one hour If directed toward the pole star. The camera may be left out all night if pointed
at the pole, tint must be taken in just
before daylight. The longer the exposure the longer the star "scratches."
Develop tbe plate as long as possible.

First and foremost your true river-
man cau ride a log. This does uot mean
merely that be ls able to stand upright
or to jump from one to another without splashing lu, though even that is
no mean feat, as a trial will convince
you. That is the kindergarten of It
The saw log ln tbe water Is not only
his object of labor, but his means of
transportation. Vour true riverman ou
drive seldom steps on land except to
eat and sleep.
A Journey down stream Is to bim an
affair of great simplicity. He pushes
Into the current a stick of timber,
jumps lightly atop It, leans against his
peavy and floats away as graceful and
motionless as a Grecian statue. When
his unstable craft overtakes other logs
he deserts It runs forward as far as be
can, tbe logs bobbing and awash behind his spring, and so continues ou
another timber. Jack Boyd once for a
bet rode for twelve miles down Grand
river oo a log be could curry to tbo
stream's bank across bis shoulders
Fully half tbe time bis feet were submerged to the ankles.
Nor does quick wuter always cause
your expert riverman to disembark.
Using bis peavy aa a balancing pole
and treading witb squirrel-like quickness as his footing rolls, he will run
rapids of considerable force and volume. When tbe tail of a drive passes

Marriage Expenses.
Careful observation, extending over a
period of forty-two years and supplemented by thousands of Interviews
wltb storekeepers, hairdressers, modistes, milliners, collectors and others,
leads us to believe tbat the average
cost of a bride's trousseau In this country- taking the rich with the poor-Is
the sum of $Uti.38. Equally careful observation convinces us tbat tlie average cost of a bridegroom's sartorial
outfit is slightly less tban one-third
that amount, or, to be exact, $-2.01.
Thus we have $88.39 as the cost of the
garment** worn by bride aud bridegroom at the average wedding and lu
the course of the average honeymoon.

"A great many men blush," said a
physician; "some so painfully that
they come to me to be cured.
"The cure I recommend is an odd
one. It is the abandonment of over-
heavy clothing, especially of woollen
socks. Amazing it ia how many
male blushers have a predilection
for thick socks of wool.
"But some blushers wear light
enough clothing. To them I can
only recommend a nerve treatment.
I advise them to make speeches nt
banquets, to be witnesses in murder
trials, to go to teas and dances, to
develop, in short, the nerve as a

The Austrian war office has published a bulletin calling attention to
the fact that the available list for
non-commissioned officers of the Imperial Guard has grown so small that
only comparatively few names remain upon it, and aspirants for the

for examination. "In doing so,"
says the order, "it should be remembered that the trousers worn by
guardsmen are of the Hungarian infantry cut and the wearer must
have perfectly formed legs."

Mr. Clark says Mitch opens doors,
pulls down the shades in his master's house in the evening without
being ordered to, smokes cigars,
drinks whiskey, and bowls. Mr.
Clark belongs to a lodge of Elks, and
Mitch is as good an Elk as any of
the order. At 11 o'clock he drinks

pushing the balls along the alley
with his nose nnd veering into the

As  to  Blizzard
Some philologists were wrangling
over the origin of some commotiiy
accepted words. "Blizzard" came up
and was explained iu several ingenious ways. Bartlett's dictionary of
Americanisms was consulted, and
tliis definition found: "Blizzard���a
poser; not known in the Eastern
dtates." Albert Matthews, of Boston,
a learned philologist and word analyst, iound ""blizzard" in the Virginia Literary Museum of 1020, where
it was defined as a "violent blow."
Murray's English Dictionary, the
latest out in tne lexicographical line,
says: "Blizzard���U. S.; a modern
word." Then follows tlie usuul song
and dance. Blizzard is in reality
Ulnglish. "May I be blizzured" is a
common oath in tut* Midland counties. In Pennsylvania it lias been in
common use for nearly three-quarters of a century, being used to designate force, sudden violence, spitelui-
ness or vindictiveuess.���New Yon.
Dr.   Williams'   Pink    Pills    Cured    a
Severe Case ot Anaemia and
Anaemia���poor, watery blood���is
the cause of most oi the misery
wliicli aillicts mankind. Tlie housewife especially lulls an easy prey to
it. Tlie long hours and close con-
iinenient necessary in performing her
Household duties sap her strength.
She becomes run down and often suffers extreme misery. Dr. Williums'
Pink Pills are the housewife's friend.
They make new blood���lots of it���
and pure blood banishes all women's
ailments. Mrs. E. St. Germain, wife
of a well known farmer of St. John
des Chaillons, Quo., found new
strength through Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. Sho says: "A year ago I was
extremely weak. I could not attend
to my work. I suffered from dizzy
spells; my head ached; my blood was
poor; I had a bad cough and the
doctors feared I was going into consumption. I followed their treatment for Borne time but without relief. I grew discouraged and finally
gave it up in despair. I was strongly advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, so procured six boxes. Before
thev were all gone I felt relief. The
headaches and dizziness became less
frequent and I felt a little stronger.
I continued the pills for a couple of
months, at the end of which time I
had gained in weight, the pains had
left trie, my appetite was good and I
felt as strong and well as ever I did.
I cannot say too much in favor of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for I certainly owe my good health to them."
Tlie woman in the house, the man
in the office, the boy or girl in the
school will always find a friend in
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. These pills
actually make new, rich, red blood
and good blood banishes rheumatism, general debility, kidney troubles
and those aches and pains caused by
overwork or overs-study; good blood
builds up the tired, unstrung nerves
and makes pale, thin cheeks rosy and
healthy. The pills are sold at 50
cents a box or six boxes for $2.50

A   Link   With  the  Past.
An interesting Derbyshire "link
with the past" is recalled by Mr. J
I. Sharpley, of Hatfield College, Doncaster, in a letter to The Sheffield
Telegraph. He says: "In 1872, when a
boy, staying at Midland Ward, Derbyshire, I called on an old woman,
Elizabeth Durose, then 97, widow of a
farmer, who told me that her grandmother, when a girl, had known a
man���a distant relative���who had witnessed the execution of Charles I.
The old woman then took out of a
corner cupboard an old prayer book,
bound in black leather, which was, I
fancy, of the time of Queen Anne, for
I remember it had a frontispiece picturing a parson in gown and bands,
wearing a long wig, saying prayer,
in a 'three-decker.' Opening it tit
the form of service for Jan. 30, she
showed me a piece of coarse linen, of
the color of a dead leaf, which she
said was a portion of a handkerchief
which had been dipped in the King's
blood, and was given to her grandmother by the above eye-witness
When it first passed into her possession it was nearly entire, but her
children had played with it, nnd this
waj all that she had managed to preserve."���Derby Telegraph.
Wh.n   Kipling   Was   III.
Bishop Brewster, in talking to Yale
students on "Robust Religious Faith,"
told a story of Iiudyard Kipling, when
he lay ill in Naw York some years
A trained nurse, he said, was watching at Mr. Kipling's bedside during
the crisis of his illness, nnd she noticed his lips move. She bent over him,
thinking he wanted to say something,
and heard him utter these words:
"Now I lay me down to sleep," the
old familiar prayer of childhood days.
The nurse, realizing that he did not
require her services, said, in an apologetic whisper:
"I beg your pardon Mr. Kipling.
"I thought you wanted something."
"I do," faintly observed Kipling. "I
want my Heavenly Father. He only
can care for me now."
"It is this masculine, robust religious faith that we see in Kipling's writings," added Bishop Brewster, "and
it is a faith that young men may well
carry with them in the performance
oi their daily duties."

Better to Guard Against Such Emergenoy by Keeping
Vitality at High-Water Mark by the use of
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Good health is the capital of persons who earn their "ivelihood with
brain  and muscle.
In these days of strenuous life and
keen competition there is no place
for tired  bruins and  weak bodies.
Success is for the strong and alert
���for those whose blood is rich and
whose nerve cells nre filled with vigor  and  energy.
It is not pleasant to contemplate
what might happen with failing
health and for this reason it is well
to heed the first symptoms of nervous
exhaustion, such its bruin fag, headache, nervous dyspepia, sleeplessness, failure of memory and loss of
power  to  concentrate  the  mind.
While Dr. Chase's Nerve Food hns
succeeded in curing ninny cases of
partial paralysis, locomotor ataxia,
and the most severe forms of nervous prostration nnd exhaustion, it
is not well to delay treatment until
these stubborn and dangerous diseases  set in.
At the slightest indication of waning nerve force begin the use of Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food, and with a few
weeks' treatment you-will be able to
restore the vitnlity of the body to
high-water mark, remove the cause
of nervous disorders, and prevent
serious results.
Miss Mary Leitch, Coulson, Sim-
coe County, Ont., writes: "When I
begun the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food my nervous system was all run
down, and I suffered terribly with
nervous headache nnd sleeplessness.
Sometimes I could not sleep for three
or four nights in succession. By the
use of several boxes of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food tiiese troubles were entirely overcome, and I consider this
preparation an excellent nerve
