We learn from a contemporary that, at
the instance of the locnl government, a
representative of the Charles Urban
Trading Co., London, will leave England
this month en route for British Columbia. He will be conducted over the
������province and is lo to tuke photographs
illustrative of the fruit growing, mining, lumbering, logging, and other industries. The chief scenic beauties of
the province will also find a place. The
photographs will be reproduced on the
bioscope in all the principal music halls
and places of entertainment throughout,
the British Isles during the coming
This is a scheme which we have often
advocated, and now that there is every
probability of the scheme materializing,
we hope to see the Slocan occupy a
prominent position amongst the exhibits, as we bave no hesitation ie saying
that for scenic beauty the district is unrivalled, and offers distinct advantages
to the tourist and honieseeker. The
Slocan is also abundantly rich in fruit
lands, and whilst being specially adapted
for fruit growing, other industries such
as mining, lumbering, logging, etc.,
flourish within its boundaries.
Mining Fatality at Sandon.
.  *:-;*���
A "missed bole" has sent another
local miner to eternity. 'John Anderson, whilst working at the Surprise
mine, near Sandon, last Friday afternoon, was terribly mutilated from an
explosion that occurred presumably
through his own fault. ft appears tbat
the unfortunate man was working in
the same spot in the drift in the morning, and he set the powder himself ln
the hole which lie had drilled, but
whicli evidently did not* take the fuse
which he had inserted before going off
shift in (he morning. The old story of
inserting the steel into the hole, a
loud explosion, and the ranks of the
miners thinned by one. Such events
are frequent.
The unfortunate fellow's arras were
blown off, bis head ton. .(rom his body,
and bis body terribly lacerated. Coroner Gomm made an enquiry into the
cause, and deemed an inquest necessary.
We understand a brother of the deceased man met a similar dealii a year
ago in a mine in tlie Nelson district.

The water is rising very rapidly, and
it has heen found necessary to lay off
twenty men at the shipyard, but it is
hoped it will only be for a short time.
On Sunday Inst some excitement was
caused by an Indian woman arriving in
town with a story to the effect that an
Indian had been killed by two white
men. Upon investigation by Constable
Scott it was found to be only a drunken
brawl, and on Monday the two white
men were before Magistrates Jordan and
Abriel and were fined .50 each for supplying liquor to the Indians. This
should be a lesson to these men���we
refrain from mentioning any names���
as we are informed by the magistrates
should a case like this happen again,
the penalty will be much heavier.

Accident at Rambler-Cariboo.
Dr, MePhee, one of the directors of
the Rambler-Cariboo mine, met with a
severe accident on Wednesday. Together with tbe other directors who
were in this week to attend the annual
meeting of stockholders, a visit was
made to the face of the 4,000 ft. tunnel,
and on making the return trip, the
speeder conveying the party collided
with a car that bad been left standing
in the tunnel. Dr. MePhee was seated
in front of the car with his legs hanging
down, and be met the full force of the
contact.   His leg waB smashed terribly.
There were two doctois on the car,
also directors, who upon gaining the
portal, immediately proceeded to attend to their suffering friend. His leg
had to be amputated above the thigh.
Dr. MePhee is a celebrated dentist of

Goodenouoh.���Mr. J. A. Wbittier
has been in charge of operations at this
mine, driving a long tunnel to tap the
vein at 450 feet below tbe old workings.
This tunnel will be about 1,500 feet long
when completed. So far 450 feet of it
has been driven and occasional pockets
of galena found, whilst a large body of
zinc ore has been encountered. It will
bo late next year before tbis long tunnel is finisned. This same company
has a lease and bond on the "Bluebird,"
and iB taking out some good galena ore.
Owing to the continued litigation,
nothing much was done on the Slocan
Star property; some development, bat
no ore shipped.
Vancouver.���This mine is doing re
markably well at present, and is turn*
ing ouf 10 tons of silver lead concentrates and 10 tons of zinc concentrates
every 24 hours. Some 12,000 tons of
ore bave been milled, which has
made 1,050 tons of zinc concentrates,
850 tons of silver-lead concentrates and
70 tonsof hand-sorted galena. Development consists of 1,270 feet of drifting,
cross-cutting, etc. An average force of
50 men has been employed, but at
present tbe company has 70 men on
the pay roll. Nothing much is being
done on the Washington mine, as the
company is waiting for a more favorable
market for zinc, having large bodies of
that ore blocked out. Some 25 tons of
galena has been shipped this year.
Dr. Gomm is still pounding away on
the Ya-Ya and has driven about 350
feet of a drift and expects to get bis ore
body at any time.
The Wakefield, Buffalo, Mountain
Con, Ruth, Wonderful, American Boy,
Sunset, California, Alamo-Idaho, Queen
Bess, Corinth and Sunshine have
nearly all shipped some ore and done
some development work, but I am unable to state just the amounts.
Fruit Rates.
The Fruit and Produce Exchange of
B.C. has arranged with the Dominion
Express company for the following
rates for the carriage of fruit:
Car lots min. 20,000 lbs., refrigerator
service from Kootenay landing and all
points on the mainland of B.C. to
points on the main line of thc C.P.R.
as far east as and including Winnipeg,
rates, $3 per 100 lbs.
Car lots min. 10.000 lbs., air cooled,
car as above. Rate, prevailing L.C.L.
These rates have been established expressly for the purpose of inducing assembled shipments, avoiding continuous
handling, which method has resulted in
far reaching success ainong'JAmerieaii
shippers. Advice must be given to the
express company in advance of^require-
ments for cars.
The mininum load in ventilated cars,
10,000 lbs., is approximately 800 to 350
crates, and the maximum load 20,000
lbs., in cars under ice, is approximately
GOO to 650 crates.
R. lfelme, superintendent of tbe Dominion Express company at Vancouver,
has taken a lively interest in_,the welfare of the indiistsy and is largely responsible for these concessions.

Patrick Lumber
Lose $75,000 Worth
Of Timber in a
Boom Burst.
Seventy-five thousand dollars worth
of limber, the property of the Patrick
Lumber Company, of Sloran, is now
floating towards the Pacific ocean.
This repie��pn.8 about nine million feet
of lumber, and the l<*ss is such a heavy
one that the company has been compelled to shut down.
The big log drive from the camps
along the Slocan River had only just
about concluded and nil the timber had
been coialled into tbe newly constructed dam in readiness for the first cut
of the new company's mill, which Is
about completed, when in one disastrous swoop, the big boom bursts, and
now all along the Columbia river for
miles the logs are strewn and disaster
stares the company in the face. It is,
however, hoped that many of the logs
wil be picked up by the booms of other
mills along the Columbia, and all the
mill owners have been telegraphed to.
The accident is particularly a bard
blow to the Slocan at this juncture as
much had been hoped fot from the
successful operation of the company,
which bad started on so pretentious a
Three piers were constructed to bold
the boom tn place, and whether through
defective workmanship or not, no one
seems able to guess, but the centre pier
was washed away in the high tide now
prevailing, and tbe gates thus opened
let ont the logs, and all the wages, labor
and winter's cut, are lost.
Liberals in Convention.
The Liberals of Kootenay mingled at
Nelson last Thursday for the purpose of
nominating a candidate to contest Kootenay in the coming Dominion elections.
The candidates in tbe field were J. F.
Deane, Nelson, G. O. Buchanan, Kaslo,
nnd Smith-Curtis, Kaslo. For some reason or other the faithful chose lo nominate what is generally supposed to be
the weakest man, Smith-Curtis coming
out top of the poll, and murmurings are
to be heard everywhere. Smith-Curtis
is a man who can change his mind as
often as he changes his socks. Of late
years be has been what may be classed
a nondescript politician, but first he was
what he was pleased to call a Joe Martin Liberal, but he and Joe failed to hit
it off, and so he became a straight Liberal. Then he wss a labor man with a
sort of Socialistic leaning. Anyhow, he
got trimmed iu the last provincial campaign, and bo there will be two defeated
candidates in that mix-up trying to secure the seat to represent Kootenay in
the Dominion house. There is humor
in the situation, and it is being appreciated. The vote at this convention was
as follows:���Curtis, 70; Buch.nan, 30;
Deane, 22. It should have been the
other way round.
Perry Siding Progress.
It is stated here that tho wagon road
from Slocan Cily toLemonton will probably be extended to Perry Siding this
summer. This would provide a splendid eight-mile wagon road for the
ranchers of this now fust-growing
settlement, as the five miles already
built between Leinonton and ihe Slocan
lake cily is one of the best roads in
Never before in their history did the
ranches iu this eistriet look better lhan

month of the same weather as is now

Several deals have been mad. in fruit

results attained by the lancbersare encouraging more settlers t > come in bore
and take up land.
Arrangements are under way for the
opening of a school at this point in the
near future.
Altogether the whole valley is a scene
of activity and more additional land wil
be put into cultivation this year than
in any previous* year, clearing forming a
good proportion of the work which must
of necessity lie done this season.

But the ex-governor shook bis grizzled head. "You do not know tbem,
sire," said be. "They are a stern folk,
these. We In Canada, wltb all your

Louis sprang Impatiently from his
chair and caught up his cane. "Tbe
matter may stand until our council.
Reverend father, it has struck the hour
of chapel, and all else may wait until
���we have paid our duties to heaven."
WHILE Louis bad been affording his court that which he
had openly stated to be tbe
highest of human pleasures,
the sight of the roy.il *face, tbe young
officer of the guard outside had been
very busy passing on the titles of the
numerous applicants for admission and
exchanging usually a smile or a few
words of greeting with tbem, for his
frank, handsome face was a well

tbe lucky chance of having seized the
bridle of tbe king's horse one winter's
day in Fontainebleau when the creature was plunging within a few yards
of a deep gravel pit had done for bim
what ten campaigns might have failed
to accomplish.
A gentleman very richly dressed In
black and silver advanced, as tbe door
opened, with the assured air of a man
whose rights are beyond dispute. Captain de Catinat, however, took a quick
step forward, and barred hlm off from
tbe door.
"I am very sorry, M. de Vlvonne,"

"Unfortunately, monsieur, it Is Impossible."
The angry nobleman stamped bis foot
and stared at tbe door as though he
had some thoughts of forcing a passage. Then, turning on his heel, he
hastened away down the corridor with
tbe air of a man wbo bas come to a
"There, now," grumbled De Catinat
to himself, as he pulled his thick dark
mustache, "be is off to make some
fresh mischief. I'll have his sister here
presently, as like ns not, and a pleasant
little choice between breaking my orders and making an enemy of her for
life. By my faith, here is a lady, as I
feared. Ah, heaven be praised, It Is a
friend and not a foe. Good morning,
Mile. Nanon."
"Good morning, Captain de Catinat."
Tbe newcomer was a tall, graceful
brunette, her fresh face and sparkling
black eyes the brighter ln contrast witb
her plain dress.
"A note from Mine.' de Maintenon
to the king. You will baud It to him,
will you not?"
"Certainly, mademoiselle. And bow
is madnine, your mistress?"
"Oh, her director has been witb her
nil the morning, and bis talk is very,
very good, but it is nlso very, very sad.
We nre not very cheerful wben M. Godot bas been to see us. But I forget
monsieur Is a Huguenot and knows

"Oh, but I do not trouble about sucb
"Ab, if monsieur could talk to Mme.
de Maintenon a little! Sbe would convert him."
"I would rather talk to Mile. Nanon,
but If"-
"Oh!" Tbere was an exclamation, a
whisk of dark skirts, nud the soubrette
disappeared down a side passage.
Along tlie broad lighted corridor was
gliding a very stately and beautiful
lady, tall, graceful and exceedingly
haughty. The ludy was past her first
youth, It Is true, but tbe magnificent
curves of her queenly figure, the purity
of ber complexion, the brightness of
her deep lushed blue eyes and the clear
regularity of her features enabled her
still to claim to be tbe most nandsome
us well as the most sharp tougued woman In the court of France.
"Ah, It is Captain de Catinat!" said
Mine, de Montespan, with a smile.
"Your humble servant, marquise."
"I am fortunute in finding a friend
here, for there bas been some ridiculous mistake this morning."
"I am concerned to henr It."
"It was about my brother. M. de Vlvonne.    It Is almost too lauehable to
mention, ,.ur ne waB actuaiiy rerusea

"It was my misfortune to bave to refuse him, madame."
"You, Captain de Catinat? And by
wbat right?" She bad drawn up her
superb figure, and her large blue eyes
were blazing witb Indignant astonishment.
"The king's order, madame."
"The king! Is it Vkely that the king
would cast a public slight upon my
family? From whom had you this preposterous order?"
"Direct from the king through Bontems."
"Absurd! Do you think that tbe king
would venture to exclude a Mortemart
through the mouth of a valet? Go, tell
tbe king that I am here and would
have a word with him."
"Impossible, madame. I have been
forbidden to carry a message."
"To carry any message?"
"Any from you, madame."
"Come, captain, you Improve. It only
needed this Insult to make the thing
complete. You may carry a message to
the king from any adventuress, from
any decayed governess"���she laughed
He slipped In front of her.
shrilly at her description of ber rival���
"but none from  Franeolse de Morte-
m^rt, Marquise de Montespan."
"Such are my orders, madame. It
pains me deeply to be compelled to
carry them out."
"You may spare your protestations,
captain. You may yet find that you
have every reason to be deeply pained.
For the last time, do you refuse to carry my message?"
"I must, madame."
"Then I carry it myself."
She sprang forward at the door, but
he slipped ln front of her with outstretched arms.
"For God's sake, consider yourself,
madame!" he entreated. "Other eyes
ore upon you."
'Tab! Canaille!" She glanced at the
knot of Switzers, whose sergeant had
drawn tbem off a few paces and who
stood open eyed, staring at the scene.
"I tell you that I will see the king."
"You will ruin me if you pass."
"And none tbe less I sball do jo."
The matter looked serious. De Catlnat was a man of resource, but for
once he wns at his wits' end. Mme. de
Montespan's resolution, ns It was called in her presence, or effrontery, as it
was termed behind her back, was proverbial. If she attempted to force her
way, would he venture to use violence
upon one who only yesterday held the
fortunes of the whole court iu the hollow of her baud and who, with ber
beuuty, her wit and ber e.iergy, might
very well be In the same position tomorrow*? If she passed him, then his
future wns ruined with the king, who
never brooked the smallest deviation
from his orders.
"If madnme would deign to wait,"
snid he soothingly, "tbe king will be
ou his way to tbe chapel In an Instant."

Recent Plots Against Monarchs Probably Hatched on British Soil.
At the present time there are no
fewer than 3,800 Anarchists in London, all well known to the police.
The bulk of them are the dreamers,
philosophers, speechmakers, and writ*
ers of the movement. Some of them
even discourage the bomb ' throwing
policy, though they allow that an
Anarchist is entitled to take what
course he pleases.
Others again organize revolutionary
plots abroad. Many an Anarchist
atrocity which has startled the world
has been planned in the neighborhood
of Soho and Tottenham Court road.
People are often puzzled to know at
what Anarchists aim, aside from the
mere wanton destruction of human
life  and  property.
"Please govern me as little as possible," wrote a famous jurist not long
ago. Carry that to its extreme, and
say "I won't be governed at all," and
you  get the  Anarchist creed.
He is at open war with any and
every authority which restricts his
license to do whatever he pleases,
when he pleases, and how he pleases.
He is anti-monarchist, anti-republican, anti-suffragist. He calls for free
contracts on a basis of equality between man and man, subject to repudiation or revision at nny moment.
He says all land and nil capital belongs to nil society, and is therefore
common property. That society may
obtain possession of its own under
this wild freedom of the individual,
all  authority  must  be destroyed.
Witb human nature perfected and
beautified, with every man not only
good and wise, but equally good and
wise, the unfettered liberty of the
individual would mean the millennium, because everybody would act towards his neighbor with perfect goodness and perfect justice.
But human nature being what it
is, a jumble and welter of good and
bad and middling of selfishness and
sacrifice, of wisdom and folly, of
knowledge and ignorance, personal
liberty must be subject to restrictions
and limitations, and that is the happiest and most prosperous people
whose system of government allows
the widest liberty within the justest
It ia the wide liberties of England
which makes it possible for 3,800 Anarchists to shelter in London. England allows the widest possible liberty
even to them. Here they a��e not
hounded down for their opinions;
they are only punished when they
come in actual conflict with the law.
But even in England, if the initiative Anarchist determined on assassination or bomb-throwing, it would be
practically impossible to prevent him.
Though he may be a member of an
Anarchist group, more often than not
other members of the group do not
know what he is going to do.
Many of the papers circulating
among Anarchists in London and elsewhere tell how bombs may be manufactured; and with a bomb or an infernal machine in his pocket society
has  no defense agninst him.
Hundreds of public buildings in
London are at his mercy. The movements of our statesmen and grent
capitalists are more or less public.
Yet Anarchist outrages are rare, and
this may be accepted as the Anarchist
tribute that the laws are in general
among the most just in the world.
The Growth of London.
The volume of statistical abstracts
issued by the London County Council
contains all sorts of interesting information on every variety of subject
connected with the metropolis.
For the year 1906 Hnmpstead is the
borough with the smallest number of
deaths per thousand of population,
9.4 being the figure, while to maintain the balance the same borough
stands at the bottom of the list in the
birth-rate with 16 5 per thousand.
In the whole of London in the same
year 124,880 children were born, as
compared with 126,620 births in the
preceding year. Stepney headed the
list with 10,811, or 35.3 per thousand.
Deaths for the metropolis in 1906
numbered 71,813, an increase of 1,363
on the previous year. In other words,
of 1,000 people living 15.2 died in
1906, as compared with a level 15 in
Of course, in point of actual numbers the city of London rejoices in
the lowest figure for both births and
deaths, owing to its comparatively
small resident population, but its rate
per thousand is in neither case so
low as Hampstead.
On another ��_page we learn, that in
the county of London there are 957
elementary schools which are attended by-890,593 children ��� representing
about one-fifth of the total population
of the county.
No figures for the total population
of Greater London are given for later
than 1901, but in that year the inhabitants���man, woman and child-
numbered 4,536,433.
How greatly the metropolis is growing in regard to mere bricks and
mortar may be inferred from another
set of statistics which are reckoned
down to April of last year.
In that month we nre told tbere
were 629,853 rated bouses in London,
nn increase of over 3,000 on the previous year. The ft.ll rateable value
was close upon ��44,000,000, working
out at ��9 8s. per head, as compared
with ��8 Its. per head in 1901.
Typist Charmed Prince.
Miss Fritz, the champion typist, was
sitting at her machine in the business
exhibition at the Olympia on a recent afternoon when the Prince and
Princess of Wales came by. "They
tell me you hnve done some wonderful
things, Miss Fritz," said the prince.
"We should like to see your work.''
Forthwith tbe girl's fingers moved
rapidly over the keyboard, and in
sixty seconds she handed the prince
113 words properly punctuated and
without a single error. "Wonderful,"
snid the prince. "Do you mind signing it?" And His Koyal Highness
carried the souvenir away over tbe
signature of Rote L. Fritz. At another stand the prince snid: "I don't
think I could ever learn to work
that." "Oh," replied a pretty attendant, "we have boys only 14 years
old who can do it."

"But I shall always be a brother to

"If I hnd alii use for a brother." she

Danger in Cigar Cutters
Tbe German health officials are
considering abolishing the device for
cutting off the ends of cigars that
form a familiar pnrt of the equipment of tobacco shops. It is alleged
that many smokers make use of the
instrument after having already placed the cigar in tneir mouths and
therefore render possible the transfer of germs to other smokers.���

Amusing Oddities of Some Ancient
English   Churches.
Some pews in the fine old church
at Malpas, Cheshire England, possess
a most amusing peculiarity. Each
one consists of several seats, which
are really, though not apparently, detached, and they look easy and comfortable. In this ease appearances
are deceitful, for should one occupant
of any one seat lean forward while
"nidnid nodding" over he goes on
the floor. The seat is so constructed
as to easily tip over when any weight
is placed on its outer or front edge
and was so designed to prevent people from going to sleep in church.
We still find in a few of our ancient
churches the high pews, luxurious
cushions and curious fittings of former
In the good old times, wben the
squire was lord of all be surveyed in
the village, his pew in the parish
church was often a kind of sitting
room. One such pew occupies the
whole of the south transept of "the
diminutive church at Gatton, in
Surrey. It has a fireplace, a low seat
which extends around two sides of
the room and blue tapestry decoration. Above it is another floor, on
which are three or four ordinary pews
for the use of the squire's servants,
nnd from it a covered wny leads to
Gatton Hall, some few yards away.
There may be some truth in the story
that a former squire used to enjoy ,1
pipe by tbe fireplace during the sermon and that if be became weary he
would go out through the private door
for a short stroll  in  the churchyard.
A Bimilar ppw exists in n church nt
Colwich, Staffordshire. It hns a staircase lending to n private door, and
it is snid that the postman cnme this
way to convey letters and that the
servant brought in e.ike and wine for
consumption during the service.
Tlie roynl pew of St. George's elinn-
el, Windsor, is peculiar, because it
is the largest, of its kind in England
nnd on account of its being situated
above the choir, down unon which the
Queen cn see the service from a fine
oriel window.
Tn little Benjamin Church. Norfolk, is n pew for strangers and wed-
dinc parties. Tt was constructed bv

Royalty and Railways.
Two interesting personalities nre
soon to retire from tbe railway world.
Mr. Geor.e Wright, the superintendent of Victoria station, on the London, Brighton & South Coast line, is
giving up bis post in July; and tbe
retirement of Mr. Jno. Queen, tbo
stationmaster at the South-Eastern &
Chatham terminus, has already been
nnnounced. They nre officials wbo
have heen responsible at their respective stations for the safety nnd comfort, of the long list of royal persons,
English and foreign, who bnve traveled to nnd from the continent by
Victoria. Mr. Wright bas given some
reminiscences of those roval comings
nnd goings during his 2!) years in
elmnre of the Brighton station. Queen
Victoria was n fienuent visitor to the
station on hor way to and from Osborne. Wben the Oueen died, Mr.
Wright wns responsible for the arrangements for conveying the body
from Osborne to Victoria, and King
Edward expressed his high appreciation of them.
Of the late King of Portugal and
the late Crown Prince Mr. Wright
has tbe plensantest recollections.
"Most, kindly nnd genial" is his description of the murdered monarch.
Tbe two royal personages who preferred to t.ravpl slowlv were Queen
Victoria and the late Shah of Persia.
Her Mnjesty never cared to travel at
a speed higher thnn from 40 to 45
miles on hour; and the Shall was
frightened if a speed over 20 miles an
hour were attained. In February,
1884. part of the station was blown
up by Fenians. A Gladstone-bag bad
been'deposited in the cloakroom containing dynnmite, and when this exploded it wrecked the cloakroom and
the ticket office, besides doing other
damage. Mr. Wright, who lived in
the neighborhood, heard tbe noise of
tbe explosion, and hurried to the
station. He found that the flames
had been speedily extinguished. One
station hand, who at the time of the
exploaion was fixing the fire-hose near
the cloakroom, alone was injured, but
not seriously.
After the Victoria explosion a
search was made at the other railway
stations, and at Paddington and Charing Cross Gladstone bags containing
dynamite were found in the clonk-
rooms. The dynamitards were never
discovered. They escaped, it was believed, to America. Mr. Wright has
only had to deal with one strike.
This occurred many years ago, when
be was on the western section. The
engine-drivers went out on strike, but
retu-ned after two days. Guards
were pressed into service as firemen
in order to keep the service running.
Since Mr. Wright took charge of the
station the traffic lias been multiplied
by three.
Decrease  of  Crime.
Tho number of people tried for in-
dictable offences In 1300 in England
waB 59,079, as against 54,067 in 1857,
wlion the population was forty per
cent, less than now.
This is reveuled in a Blue Book
issued recently by the Home Office,
giving tlie criminal statistics for 1906.
Crime decreased that year. Four-
fifths of crimes nre larcenies, and
these diminish in good times.
Drunkenness nnd crimes of violence
tend  to  increase  in  good  times.
Prosecutions tor riot���common fifty

A  Custom  That   Is   Neither   Becoming
Nor  Health  Giving.
Why do bolh men and women persist
In wearing lints? asks Pearson's Magazine. There are three reasons why we
should wear clothes. We may wear
them for tbe sake of decency, for the
sake of warmth and for the sake of dis
play. None of these reasons applies
to the wearing of hats. Of course
there are head coverings that are
warm, such ns the Icelander's sealskin
hood and the fisherman's toque; but, as
a rule, there Is no renl warmth in tbe
hat of either sex. When n woman pins
a slight structure of straw and artificial
flowers on tbe top of ber hair sbe never for an instant Imagines that the
thing will keep ber from taking cold.
The masculine top bat Is certainly
warm on n hot day, but It is very far
from warm iu cold weather.
Neither are hats worn for the purpose of display. Doubtless there are
times when women make the lint the
occasion of displaying their fondness
for dead birds, muslin flowers and oth
er beautiful objects, but this Is only
wben fashion has decreed tbat big hats
shall be worn. At other times the female bat is so microscopically small
that It could not be successfully used
for displaying anything. As for men's
hats, tbey never display anything except the atrocious taste which makes
them fashionable. Wby, then, in tbe
name of all that Is sensible, do men
and women wear hats?
As n rule, every man and every woman looks better without a hat than
with one. This Is why we all take off
our hats at the opera or at an evening
party, and yet we cling to a custom
that has not a word to be said in its b. ���
half. We persist in wearing the ugly
useless nnd injurious hat. Why do we
do It? I should like to lind a good Irish
echo thnt would answer the question
at length and In a satisfactory war.

that the in-door life of winter has
left its mark upon you and may easily develop into more serious trouble.
Don't dose yourself as many people

hope that you can put your blood
right. Purgatives gallop through the
system and weaken instead of giving
strength. What you need in spring

he rushed into the cabin and pi une

New Step May Be Taken  In England
In   Near   Future.
A few years ago in England both
the Conservative party and the Liberals, with the exception of the extreme radical section, were agreed that
it was not the duty of the Government to provide any class of citizens
with any of the necessaries of life,
and among the necessaries of life
were included good, habitable dwellings.
It was held that to provide such
necessaries fer any class was not the
duty of the state, because if it did so
it would inevitably tend to make that
class depend not on themselves, but
upon what was done for them elsewhere, and that it would not be possible to teach a worse lesson than "if
you don't take care of yourself the
state will tnke care of you."
But things are changing. The Government has promised to bring a
measure dealing with the housing
question, especially in the crowded
districts, and it is being pressed by
the Socialist section of its party to
provide the working classes with
habitations at greatly lower rents than
the market value paid elsewhere.
This will be supported by a large
number of" radicals, but strenuously
opposed by the Opposition and many
moderate Liberals.
No one doubts the propriety and
the right of the state to interfere in
matters relating to the sanitary laws,
and. looking nt the question as a
mutter of snnitary reform there is
much to he dune by legislation to take
the working classes out of that miserable condition in which they find
themselves, namely, that even if they
wnnt decent houses they cannot find
them. The evil to be grappled with
is not one of modern growth.
The rookeries have heen the growth
of generations. It must take time and
effort and it must cost money to effect
a cure. The Gove *nment has promised old age pensions, the multiplication of small holders, the resuscitation of agriculture, town planning,
better snnitary conditions of labor,
the extinction of sweating, physical
training of the people and other measures necessary to preserve the stamina of the .rnee and develop their intelligence and productive powers.
None of these objects is opposed by
the Unionists, but they are prepared
ti start a crusade against what they
call "revolutionary Socialism," and
they regard the building of good
dwellings at very low rents as a step
toward revolutionary Socialism.
In recent years a great deal has
been done townrd solving the housing question. Cheap electric trams are
run far into the districts known as
"Greater London," but there are thousands of workmen who hnve to reside
near tlieir work in wretched, squalid
rookeries, in courts and blind alleys,
where the sun never penetrates, which
means an enormous waste of life in
infnncv, a great waste of physical
condition after infancy is passed and
a waste of stamina in the present generation and in the generation which
springs from it. County and borough
councils have swent away a large
number of unhealthy areas, but there
are still many left.
Religious   Ideas   in   India.
An illustration of the extent to
which the religious idea dominates
the lives of the people of India, even
to the most minute details, is found
in that most familiar of domestic
utensils, the lota. The shape of this
vessel, as used by Hindus (who always
prefer brass, while the Mohammedans
would give copper the first place, as
being in their opinion the purest of
metals), with its globular, melon-
shaped body and elegantly-reflexed
rim, is Baid to have its original in
the partially-expanded flowers of the
sacred lotus. The Mohammedans turn
the lota into the tonti by adding a
spout to it, because the Koran ordains
that a man should perform his ablutions in running water, and the falling of water through the spout is considered to comply with this injunction.
To these facts, mentioned by Sir
Geo. Watt in his article on "Arts and
Manufactures," in the "Imperial
Gazateer," many parallels could be
quoted. Some years ago, for example,
when an order was issued that prisoners in Bengal gaols were to wear
jerseys and pyjamas, instead of their
ordinary clothes, the result was the
utmost consternation. The Hindus
objected because, they said, it waa
against tlieir religious principles to
eat food while wearing a garment
which contained a seam, while the
Mohemmedans protested that they
were commanded to wear a garment
sufficiently long to cover their heels
when they knelt in prayer. In one
ca.se, where the magistrate of the
district brought in the pandits and
moulvis to disabuse the prisoners'
minds of these prejudices, he found
that these learned gentlemen took
the part of the objectors, maintaining that their scruples were thoroughly scriptural. Some Hindu
prisoners almost straved themselves
to death before they gave in, but discipline eventually prevailed.

Birth of Baby Girls at Brighton With
One Backbone.
Brighton has furnished a parallel to
the famous Siamese twins, a young
woman having given birth to two
little girls joined inseparably at the
hips, their backbones meeting at the
lower end of the body.
They also hav. certain internal organs in common; otherwise they are
finely developed children with every
prospect of a vigorous existence.
Dr. Booth, who attended at the
birtL. says that the case is phenomenal. The children have evidently entirely separate individualities, for
one has been noticed to wake up .and
cry without disturbing the other, and
one has had pain without the other
being concerned.
The doctor says: "I am trying to
get the foster-parents to consent to
an operation to separate the children, '���
but they demur. Sueh an operation
might cause the death of one of them,
for the twins, of course, have the
same blood supply, but I think one
of them would continue to live.
"Joined as they are, any infantile
disease, such as measles, which one
might catch, would be sure to be communicated to the other.
"I intend to exhibit the phenomenon to the Medical Society next
week. Such a case I have never experienced before, ft, is extremely
rare to find such children in apparently perfect health."

Marquis of Townshend Makes Oud
Accusation  Against Curate.
A remarkable ease of hypnotism
and blighted affection is occupying
the attention of a London court, in
which the Marquis of Townshend is
one of the principals. The other is
the Bev. Arthur Bobins, one time
curate of the fashionable Holy Trinity Church.
The Marquis is the plaintiff in the
case, and he charges the curate with
having hypnotically wheedled from
him various large sums of money and
valuable heirlooms, and also the love
ol his beautiful wife, wliich tlie curate has deprived him of by slander.
The Marquis .wept so hysterically
when he related his woes on the witness stand that he could scarcely be
The plaintiff's story is that he
studied hypnotism with the defendant, who found the Marquis so plastic a subject that he put him under
hypnotic control and in that state
secured many of the Townshend
paintings, works of art and jewels,
and also the Townshend ready money
���all under the simple scheme of making the Marquis think he didn't neod
any ol the possessiohs.
The affairs of the Marquis of Townshend have had many strange phases.
In 1905 he married Gladys Ethel
Gwendolen Eugenie, the beautiful
daughter of Thomas Sutherst, a lawyer. The Marquis is a little, insignificant man, and not particularly
bright, while the Marchioness is a
woman of grent wit and intelligence.
After the honeymoon, which waa
a farce, there were legal entanglements over money matters, which
were brought to topsy-turvy end by
the declaration of wife and father-in-
law that the Marquis was mentally
incapable. Some sort of reconciliation was patched up, and since that
time quiet has brooded over the
Townshend menage.
Courting Assassination.
That some twenty rulers, elective as
well as hereditary, have been assassinated within tlie pnst forty years, is
largely due to a bravery which in
some instances has closely approached foolhardiness.
The late King Carlos of Portugal,
for example, knew perfectly well that
a plot against his dynasty had been
hatched by desperate men, who would
stick at nothing to accomplish their
ends. Yet he drove through his capital to his death in an..open carriage,
taking scarcely eV**n the most ordinary
preeau tions.
The unhappy Ozar Alexander of
Russia, again, was warned, urged, implored even, not to venture forth on
the dny he was blown to pieces by a
bomb. But. he refused to listen, and
even nfter the first explosion, insisted
on quitting his sleigh to see to the
wounded, instead of driving straight
home, with the result that he met the
death he might almost be said to have
voluntarily sought.
Then there was Ihe case of President
McKinley, who could not be dissuaded
from shaking hands with all tlie ragtag and bobtail of Buffalo, although
warned by his secret police that he
was risking his life in so doing. Similarly, President Carnot might be alive
to-day hnd he followed the advice of
M. Casmir-Perier and refrained from
going to LyonB on that fatal day in
June, 18C4.
King Humbert was warned, not
once, but many times, of the imnin-
ent danger he was in nfter the political crisis of June 18th. 1900. Yet we
find him, only six weeks later, driv-
ing unescorted amongst the fanatical
and turbulent populace ot Morna,
where he was fatally shot.
Of course, there are exceptions,
King Alfonso, for instance, chose to
drive to church to get married in a
steel-clad, bomb-proof coaeh. To which
precaution is due the fact that he
and his queen are alive to-day.

His  Outfit   Must   Be   Ready   For  All
King Edward recently started out
on his travels, and this brings to mind
the fact that when His Majesty is
about to undertake even a semi-incognito visit abroad it is the duty of hia
body servants to see that he travels
with an outfit capable of meeting any
emergency. Foreign potentates are
amazingly particular concerning sartorial etiquette.
In. .this matter many an easy going
and simple-minded monarch has remained quite mediaeval in his no-,
tions of what it due to him. That is
the reason why each royal personage
is compelled to have such an amazingly large wardrobe, especially so complete and costly a collection of uniforms, and, of course, in many cases
the question of "What shall I wear?"
abroad is settled for royalty by the
Draconian laws of international etiquette.
Perhaps the fact that royal personages have to wear when traveling, and
for long tiring hours, heavy uniforms
to which they ore unaccustomed, and
which perhaps they have only worn
once it ever before, makes them more
particular than humbler mortals concerning the comfort of their ordinary
touring garments.
This is particularly true of Edward
VII.; His Majesty's lounge suits nre
marvels of ease and comfort, and special care is taken In the matter of
the royal footgear, particularly since
the King's serious accident ut Wad-
desdon some years ago.
To give but one example, tho King
does not use the usual "service" boots
painfully familiar to every officer;
in his ease these a:-e replaced by an
easier make, which, though boasting
of thick heels, have no brad* or nails.
In this connection it may be stated
that His Majesty never wears shoes,
excepting when yachting; like the late
Queen, he prefers boots for all occasions.

New York Physician Transfuses Father's Blood With Child's.
Physicians and surgeons are discussing with the keenest interest ah
operation recently performed by Dr.
Alexis Carrel, head of the Rockefeller
Institute, on the li'.tle daughter of Dr.
Adrian V. S. Lambert,* whicli they
regard as must convincing proof of
the value of vivisection.
Anti-viviseotiomsts are centering
their attack on the Rockefeller Institute, and the fact that the operation
was performed by one of the leading
surgeons connected with it gives it a
peculiar  significance.
In itself the operation is regarded
as one of the most remarkable ever
performed. The child was only five
years old and was suffering from purpura, a disease of which little is
known. Its symptoms are a weakening of the walls' of th'e arteries so
that the blood escapes from all parts
of the body.
Dr. Carrel was called in when the
life of the child was despaired of.
The only possible hope lay in transfusion of blood. Dr. Lambert, the
child's father, volunteered to give all
his own* blood thnt was, necessary to
save the chijd's life, and Dj*. Carrel
undertook the operation in' spite of
the slight chance* there, appeared to
be of success.        ,   .    .*,..' >���*
He was strapped to the baby and
one of his' arteries, connected with the
child's blood vessels. His blood rushed from his big healthy body into
that of the child with such good effect that the bnby rallied almost immediately and is now not only out
of danger, but fast gaining flesh and
the rosy look a healthy baby ought to
Friends of Dr. Carrel,;who declined
with some abruptness to discuss the
case, say that the operation would
have been out of the question except
for the skill gained from many similar operations on the lower animals.
London School Attendance./
During the last six years there has
been a decline of mnre than 10.000 in
the number of children nttending.the
elementary schools of London, and
the official reporting the matter to the
London County Council Board of Education says that one of the chief
causes is the reduction which appears
to be taking place in the average size
of London families.
There is no direct suggestion of race
suicide, for the report says* "Some
portion of the reduction in the average
number of children in a family in the
county of London is in all probability
due to the fact that the larger families
feel to greater extent than the smaller
ones the economic pressure which
tends to drive them from the centre
of London to the outskirts of the
county, and beyond the county.
"As a rule, the larger the famil.
the greater is the difficulty of finding suitable house accommodation in
the more contrnl parts, and the
stronger are the influences of attraction to the' suburbs."
Escaped the Frost That Injured Much
of the Whoat Last Year.
A prominent business man whose
interests demand a very close study
of Northwest crop conditions, said recently : it is nu interesting fact
that while there was a .shortage in
most of the cereal crops last year, tlie
flax crop of the Canadian West was
larger than ever before. This was
chielly due to the fact that flax can
be sown later than wheat, bailey or
outs ns it matures much more quickly so that in a short season witli early
frost is is not so risky a.crop as wheat.
Flax is very extensively grown in tlie
Northwestern States, but uie fanners
of Canada have never raised enough to
supply tiie home market, so that
huge quantities of flaxseed, ns well
as linseed oil and other products of
flaxseed, are imported every year.
Millions of dollars have been sent out
of Canada for flaxseed and its products and this money might just as well
have been kept in Canada to circulate
among tlie farmers of the west. Tin's
is n mutter well worth tlie attention
of newspapers circulating in the Can.
adian West.
"Flaxseed is used for a great variety of purposes and the demand for
it ia Steadily increasing. The cliief
crop of tlie west must continue to be
wheat, but those farmers who sow a
portion of their land witli flaxseed
will have something to fall back on
when their wheat crop is destroyed
or injured by early frost."

In the average Chinese community
all letters and waste papers are laid

An instance cnme to the notice of

the necessity of going by train either

the dentist acquired a reputation,

six months he had made no less than

Time and the Man
Someone may suggest that if Cromwell and Napoleon Bonaparte alid Bismarck and George Washington and
Abraham had not appeared to do the
work they did, others would have
arisen equally capable of doing it,
though perhaps in a different way.
To this suggestion , there are two
answers. One is that it is pure conjecture. The other answer is that history shows us many occasions when
the great man wns needed, and when
tlie need of him wns acutely felt,and
yet wilt * one did not appear. The
greatness of some men is largely due
to favoring conditions. Other men,
perhaps more brilliant, achieve less
than their powers seemed to promise,
because they wero not in key witli
their own age. Perhaps they were
ahead o' it.���James Bryce in Pall
Mall Gazette.
A Little  Bedtime Talk.
Philip, aged two and a half, was being put to bed, and his mother was
giving hlm a little bedtime talk.
"God is always near you," she said.
"He Is alwoys watching over you and
Is close beside you, dear."
"Is he right here now," asked Philip
���"right beside mc now, mother?"
"Yes, dear���right here beside you,
though you can't see him."
Philip turned solemnly.
"Hello, God!" he sald.-New "fork
Fox   Farming
It is credibly stated that a very
flourishing lox farm is being carried
on in Prince county, Prince Edward
Island. The parties conducting tlie
same have met with great success,
and each year put on the market
large numbers of skins of various
kiifds. Their success, it is said, is
largely due to the fact thnt they have
their farm divided off into sections,
each section under the care of one
person, no one else being allowed to
approach it. In this way tlie animals
become accustomed to the person in
charge and grow very tame, but if a
stranger approaches tliey will hide
and not be seen for n dny or two.
Many of the hides in tlieir green
condition were valued at $200 to $250
encb,  one  or two  reaching  $450.
He  Used to   Be  One  Engaged   Exclusively  In  Foreign  Commerce.
Originally   the   term   merchant  was
applied only to one who traded with
foreign  countries and  who owned or
.'bartered   ships   for   that   purpose���
Chaucer's "Marehaunt:"
He woldo  the  see  were kepud  for eny-
Betwixe MIddulburgh and Orewelle.
The merchant of Venice had "on the
ocean" his "argosies with portly sail,"
and so had all the other merchnnts
about whom poets or historians have
written. So also in the Bible there Is
no confusion about the meaning of the
word. One passage alone will serve as
an illustration, "She is like the merchants' ships���she bringeth her food
from afar" (rroverbs xxxl, 14). De
Quincey, writing In the early part of
the nineteenth century ("Autobiographic Sketches"), says:
"My father was a merchant, not ln
the sense of Scotland, where it means
a retail dealer���ono, for Instance, who
sells groceries In the cellar���but In the
English sense, a sense rigorously exclusive���that Is, he was a man engaged In foreign commerce aud no
other, therefore In wholesale commerce and no other,"
But now it is no longer necessary to
"plow the Spanish main" to g!.e one
this time honored title, for any one
who sells eggs by the dozen or flannel
by the piece is at once put down as a
merchant.���Loudon Notes and Queries.
There are plants so sensitive that If
when standing by them you should
suddenly put up your umbrella or sunshade It would be quite sufficient to
cause them Instantly to close together
their leaflets and turn down their leaf

on a sunny day when the temperature
Is sufficiently high you need not make
even so decided n movement; merely

their leaves *.v"! often cause them to
fall slightly.���Strand Magazine,
