Abont eighteen months a;o Dr. W.
E. (ioinm, ot Sandon, start *d devoting
his attention to Iho subject of the
Slocnn ore deposits, wilh the object of
discovering the agencies determining
their localization, Tho search, as he
states, proved difficult, and months of
laborious effort wee consume I before
Iho main idea suddenly dawned upon
Hy close observation of conditions ou*
dining in relation to known holies of
ore, be discovered that a constant similarity exiatod between tbem, and by
reasoning llierefiom be concluded tbat
if a certain peculiar combination of
circumstances nccdmpauied tho known
bodies of ore and failed where ore was
known not to exist, then if he cmid
find tbe combination in i.ny nearby locality, he would lensinably expect to
find an ore body simi'arly  placed.
He states that of all the ore shoots
which he knows in Slocan, by observation or enquiry the rule is invariable
that the heavy tuaste* of ore aro to bo
found near the northeastern extr. mc,
and tho smallest at the i��' 'JAweslern,
and that he positively l'*u-_*%a why this
is tme. Ho is not yet," i 'rover, ready

public, an 1 will do s ) "here -' ;i those
who have belittled anl iter,dud bi.��
efforts have become convinced that bis
t'leorits are something more than "h il
air." m
II "retofore, float oro has been a main
object ol search hy pro-pectoi'8, tbe intent being to follow any find of llont to
Its source, This Dr. G imni has made
a matter of secondary moment. He
first and foremost lines out his ledge;
then searches careful ty for tbe attendant combination nlo"g that line; las ly
he stur:a searching for capping, flout,
et*., always confining Irs work to prior
maiked limits, and we venture to state
that he will find the ore when be goes
alter it.
During Ihe past yrnr Ihe Review has
watched with keen Interest the progress of Dr. Gjinin upon the Ya-Ya,
a property ju-t but.ide the city limit*.
Starting out in the full of last ynu* he
began his lost arches with unbound, d
confidi-n e nnd very limited capita'.
When it bcc.iine kno-i n that lho".oien-

ihere was iiiuoh "clrinwagglng" and no
little amusement, as tlie property was
011 the list of the "c indeinued," and
the doOtor���������������� taken aside by his Wel
wishers, and an endeavor made fo dissuade him from his purpose. But th'*
medico's answer to tho well meaning
Mends and not a few c ,vort dutraot-
ors, was typical of the nun. "I'll in aleo
you wallopers follow me arjund to got
next to my system, and when I -peak
you'UTipen your mouths, prick up your
ears, "and listen."
Aud SO he began. Ono or two men
became iuterutvted enough to graduate In
the new school of prospecting, and **e
can say wiih mt fear of contradiction
that his rystem where it has been in-
telligruii.lv applied has nut yet. failed,
nor is it likely to. But of tho Ya-Ya.

But ihodooioi* stirted tunnelling, and
to cut a Ion . story *hor', he has as tin**

that It is p u t of hi j reasoning that the

representative just before going to press.

criticism has shown that he hns the
"open sesame" to the treasure vaults of

It is surpris'ng lo any outsider nn h*s
way to Sandon to bear employees of
concerns whose whole exist* 11C0depends*
on the icry fact that t'andon IS, continually "knocking" tbe town. If
S union was non ost, tbey are the very
men who would havo to look for a new
Many who havo travelled to Sandon
can confirm our statements. On tbe
boat oi train shoul I you say you are on
your way to Sandon, the knockerin-
vaiiahly makes himself beard, and from
what he says olio would think you
would have t. live In a log cabin, the
rain coming through the roof. Vou
would bave to wash your own clotlna
and live the ll'eof a hermit. Nothing
'���an be further from the truth. For the
aizc of the place we have bolter facilities than ���onie ciliea. We have a bo -
pita', a school, tinec* cl niches, a city
hall and coniuil, ore i f tho best f Qllip-
pul waterworks end chitric ligl t
sys'ems in the Intoiior, and seveinl
h t* Is, restaurants and etnas. One if
the ho'els is both an admiration ai.d
a surprise to any commeiolal traveller
who happens to pnsi through our cby,
and lb* y should kuow something aboni
it. We a'SO have H.n railway stations
representing the K. A S . daily servic.
and the tri-weekly service of the C.P.R.
There nre about a d izen secret societies
In tho city who meet in a lodge room,
such is Nelson yet hopes to Bee some-,
tone in lhe future. The opera house,
is well heated and "everyone does not
say " old barn," or go away with a*i
attack of tlie grippe, as the wri'er urn
testify from experience In an interior
cily of (i.OOO Inhabitant.
There is more wealth in nnd around
Sandon than tn any other mining camp
In B.C., and when capital and population is on hand to develop that wealth,
then the knocker will slink away wii.1i
shame and bije in his shell where he
h*. Lug*.
Thui again there is a certain section
of tbe press v bo ure knockers of thu
most virulent type. Only quite recently
Ihe Nelson evei ing paper made a big
talk a1out the Had Mines Smelter and
endeavored to show Ihat iis ptesei.t
miibai'sssinout is due to tl.o b'loo-in.
But the Slocandoi s not propose to stand
for any such b.inkum, nor dies the
.Slocan propoio to knock the Hall Mires

refencd lo chose to w rite a pnnegyiic on

and (brow tho oi.nsof iis failure to fill

In lhe Rlooan, mil for that mallei*,
nil other) mining centres, know jiiht
what is' the trouble, but it would no*
redound to ai yone'a credit lo ucioun* Ir..
from Ihe housetops, nor do wo think It

*|DNT   FANNY,   what   Is   that
white   thing   sticking   under
the window?" demanded Bev-
        erly late the next morning.
She wns sitting with ber face to the
���windows while the old negress dressed
her hair.
"Looks lak a love letteh, Miss Bev'ly," was tbe answer ns Aunt Fanny
gingerly placed an envelope ln her mistress' hand. Beverly looked nt It ln
amazement. It was unmistakably a
letter, addressed to her, which had
been left at her window some time In
the night Her heart gave a thump,
and she went red with anticipated
pleasure. With eager fingers she tore
open the envelope The first glance at
the contents brought disappointment
to her face. The missive was from
Count Marlanx, but It wns a relief to
find that he was very much alive and
kicking. As she read on there came a
look of perplexity which wai succeeded by burning indignntion. The man
In the cloak was preparing to strike.
Tour secret ls mine. I know all that
happened lu the chapel and undemround
passage. Tou have betrayed Graustark
in aiding this man to escape. The plot
was cleverly executed, but you counted
without the Jealous eye of love. You can
���ave yourself and your honor and perhaps
your princess, but the conditions are
mine. This time there can be no trifling.
I want you to treat me fairly. God help
you If you refuse. Give me the answer
I want, and your secret ls safe. I will
shield you with my life. At 11 o'clock I
���hall come to see you. I have ln my
possession a document that will Influence
you. You will do well to keep a close
mouth until you have seen this paper.
This alarming note was all that was
Deeded to restore fire to the lagging
blood of the American girl. Its effect
was decidedly contrary to that which
Marlanx must have anticipated. Instead of collapsing, Beverly sprang to
her feet with energy and life In every
fiber. Her eyes were flashing brightly,
her body quivering with the sensations
of battle.
"That awful old wretch!" she cried,
to Aunt Fanny's amazement. "He is
the meanest human being in all the
world. But he's making the mistake of
his life, isn't he, Aunt Fanny? Oh, of
course you don't know what It is, so
never mind. We've got a surprise for
him. I'll see him at 11 o'clock, and
then"��� Sbe smiled quite benignly at
the thought of what she was going to
Bay to him. Beverly felt very secure
in tbe shadow of the princess.
A clatter of horses' hoofs on the parade ground drew her to the balcony.
What she saw brought Joy to her
heart. Lorry and Anguish, muddy and
disheveled, were dismounting before
the castle.
"Ah, this ls joy! Now there nre three
good Americans here. I'm not afraid,"
she said bravely. Aunt Fanny nodded
her head in approval, although sbe did
not know what It was all about. Curiosity more than alarm made Beverly
eager to see the document which old
Marlanx held in reserve for her. She
determined to meet him at 11.
A message from the princess announced the unexpected return of the
two Americans. She said they were (te
ni* Harry Anguish's own expression)
"beastly near starvation" and clamored for substantial breakfasts. Beverly
was urged to join them nnd to hear
the latest news from tbe frontier.
Lorry and Anguish were full of the
excitement on which they had lived for
many hours. They had found evidence
of raids by the Dawsbergen scouts and
hnd even caught sight of a small band
of fleeing horsemen. Lorry reluctantly
admitted that Gabriel's army seemed
loyal to bim and tbat there was small
hope of a conflict being averted, as he
had surmised, through the defection of
the people. He was surprised, but not
dismayed, when Yetive told bim certain
portions of the story ln regard to Marlanx; and, by no means averse to seeing the old man relegated to the background, heartily indorsed the step taken by his wife. He was fair enough,
however, to promise the general a
chance to speak in his own defense If
he so desired. He had this in view
when he requested Marlanx to come to
the castle at 11 o'clock for consultation.
"Gabriel ls devoting most of his energy now to hunting that poor Dantan
into bis grave," said Anguish. "I believe he'd rather kill his half brother
than conquer Grnustark. Why, the Inhuman monster has set himself to the
task of obliterating everything that reminds him of Duntan. We learned
from spies down there that he Issued
an order for the death of Dantan's sister, a pretty young thing named Can-
dace, because he believed sbe was secretly aiding her fugitive brother. She
escaped from the palace in Serros a
week ago, nud no one knows whnt has
become of her. There's a report that
she was actually killed and that the
���story of ber flight is a mere blind on
the part of Gabriel."
"He would do anything!" cried Yetive. "Poor child! They say she Is
like her English mother and ls charming."
"That would set Gabriel against her,
I fancy," went on Anguish. "And, by
the way, Miss Calhoun, we heard something definite nbout your friend, Prince
Dantan. It ls pretty well settled that
he isn't Bnldos of the guard. Dantan
wns seen two days ago by Captain
Dangloss' men. He was ln the Daws-
bergcu pass, and they talked with him
nnd his men. There was no mistake
this time. The poor, half starved chap
confessed to being the prince and begged for food for himself and his followers."
"I tried to find him and, falling In
that, left word ln the pass tbat If ho
would but cast bis lot with us ln this
trouble we soon would restore him to
his throne." said Lorry. "He may accept, and we shall have him turning
tip here some dav hunary tor revenge.
And now, my dear Beverly, how are
you progressing with the excellent
Baldos, of whom we cannot make a
prince, no matter how hard we try?"
Beverly and tbe princess exchanged
glances in which consternution was difficult to conceal. It was clear to Beverly that Yetive had not told her husband of the escape.
"I don't know anything about Baldos," she answered steadily. "Last
night some one shot nt him In the
"The deuce you sny!"
"In order to protect bim until you returned, Gren, I bad hlm transferred
to guard duty Inside the castle," explained the princess. "It really seemed necessary. General Marlanx expects to present formal charges against
hlm this morning, so I suppose wo
shall have to put hlm In Irons for a
littlo while. It seems too bad, doesn't
It, Gren?"
"Yes. He's ns straight ns a string,
I'll swonr." said Lorry emphatically.
"I'll bet he wishes bo were safely
out of this plncc," ventured Anguish,
and two young women busied themselves suddenly witb their coffee.
"The chance Is he's sorry ho ever
came into It," said Lorry tantallztngly.
While they were waiting for Marlanx the young Dulto of Mizrox was
announced. Tbe handsome Axphain-
Ian came with relief and dismay struggling for mastery in his face.
"Your highness," ho snid after tbe
greetings, "I nm come to inform you
that Graustark has one prince less to
account for. Axphain has found bet-
"When?" cried tbe princess and Beverly In oue voice nnd with astonishing
eagerness, not unmixed with dismay.
"Three days ago," was the reply.
"Oh," came ln deep relief from Beverly as sbe sank back Into her cbalr.
Tlie same fear bad lodged in the hearts
of tlie two fair conspirators���tbat tbey
had freed Baldos only to have him fall
into the bauds of his deadliest foes.
"I bave a message by courier from
my uncle in Axphaln," aaid Mizrox.
"He says that Frederic was killed near
Labbot by soldiers, after malting a gallant fight, on last Sunday night. The
Princess Volga Is rejoicing and hns
amply rewarded his slayers. Poor
Frederic! He knew but little happiness in this life."
There was a full minute of reflection
before any of his bearers expressed
the thought that had framed itself ln
every mind.
"Well, since Dantan and Frederic are
accounted for, Baldos is absolutely
obliged to be Chrlstobal," said Anguish
"He's just Baldos," observed Beverly, snuffing out the faint hope thnt had
lingered so long. Then the said to herself: "And I don't care, either. I only
wish he were back here again. I'd be
a good deal nicer to hlm."
Messengers flew back nnd forth, carrying orders from the enstle to various
quarters.    The  ministers  were called
to meet at 12 o'clock.   Underneath all
the bustle there was n tremendous Impulse of American cunning, energy dllfl
resourcefulness.   Every -on*** caught lb
fever.    Reserved old  diplomat!   ������
overwhelmed by their own ehthns*ii*
Custom bound soldiers forgot tire
.edltarv caution and fell Into rln* ten
of the new leaders without a murmur.
The city was wild with excitement, for
all  believed that  the  war was upon
them.     There   was   but   one  shadow
overhanging the glorious optimism of
Graustnrk���the ugly, menacing attitude
of Axphaln.   Even the Duke of Mizrox
could give no assurance that his country would remain neutral.
Colonel Quinnox came to the castle
In haste nnd perturbation. It was he
who propounded the question that
Yetive and Beverly were expecting,
"Where Is Baldos?" Of course the
fight of the Buspected guard wns soon
a matter of certainty. A single Imploring glanc*. from the princess, meant
for tho faithful Quinnox alone, told
him as plainly as words could have
said that she had given the man his
freedom. And Quinnox would have
died a thousand times to protect the
secret of bis sovereign, for bad not
twenty generations of Qulnnoxes served the rulers of Graustnrk with unflinching loyalty? Baron Dangloss may
have suspected tlie trick, but lie did
not so much as blink when the princess
instructed him to hunt high and low
for the fugitive.
Marlanx came nt 11. Under the defiant calmness of bis bearing there was
lurking a mighty fear. His brain was
scourged by thoughts of Impending disgrace. The princess hnd plainly threatened his degradation. After all these
years he was to tremble wltb shiiine
nnd humiliation; he was to cringe
where he had always boasted of douil-
necring power. And besides all this
Marlanx had a bullet wound in hla left
shoulder! The world could not have

Ho approached tbe slender, imperious Judge In the council chamber witb

"A word with you," he said In an
aside to Beverly as she came from the
council chamber, in which she felt sbe
should not sit. She stopped and faced
him. Instinctively she looked to see if
he bore evidence of a wound. Sbe was
positive that her bullet had struck bim
the night before and that Marlanx was
the man witb the cloak.
"Well?" she said coldly. He read her
thoughts nnd smiled, even as his shoulder burned with pain.
"I will give you the chance to save
yourself. I love you. I want you. I
must bave you for my own," he was

"No, no! I cared nothing for them.
You are the only one I ever loved"���
"Keally, Count Marlanx, you are
most amusing," she interrupted, with
a laugh that stung him to the quick.
"You have been unique in your love-
making. I am not used to your methods. Besides, after having known
tbem, I'll confess that I don't like
them in the least You may have been
wonderfully successful in the past, but
you were not dealing with an American girl. I have had enough of your
insults. Go in and face"���
"Have a care, girl!" he snarled. "I
have It in my power to crush you."
"Pooh!" came scornfully from her
lips. "If you molest me further I shall
cnll Mr. Lorry.   Let me pass!"
"Just glance nt this paper, my beauty. It goes before the eyes of the council unless you"��� He paused significantly.
Beverly took the document nnd with
dilated eyes read the revolting charges
against her honor. Her checks grew
white with anger, then flushed a deep
"You fiend!" she cried, glaring nt him
so fiercely that he Instinctively shrank
back, the vicious grin dying in his face.
"I'll show you how much I fear you.
I shall give this revolting thing to the
princess. She may read it to the cabinet, for all I care. No one will believe
you. They'll kill you for this!"
She turned and flew Into the presence
of the princess and her ministers.
Speeding to the side of Yetive, she
thrust the paper Into her hands. Surprise and expectancy filled the eyes of
all assembled.
"Count Marlanx officially charges me
with���with���read It, your highness!"
she cried distractedly.
Yetive read It, pale faced and cold.
A determined gleam appeared ln her
eyes as she passed the document to her
"Abode," Lorry snid to an attendant,
after a brief glance at its revolting contents, "ask Count Marlanx to appear
here instantly.  He is outside the door."

Swarm of Thousands Take Possession
of   Hospital   In  Sussex.
A remarkable story of tbe "wrath
of the bee" comes from Sedgebrook
farm, near Plumpton, Sussex.
The farm is tbe East Sussex smallpox hospital, the caretaker of which,
and, in a lesser degree, his wife,
have been terrorized by bees for nearly five years.
The bees are not hive bees, though
it is possible that their progenitors
at some remote date were domesticated. They are a swarm of countless
thousands (some local gossips say
millions) which for five years at least
have bad tlieir abode under the tiles
of the farmhouse and have lived the
wildest of wild lives.
When the present caretaker came
into residence, four years ago, he little dreamed of the unpleasant tenants
already in poasession. But in the following spring he had a painful revelation. He attempted a little innocent gardening, and was badly stun.,
for  his  pains.
During the last four seasons ho has
been stung all over his body and
chased about the farm times without
number. Once last year he was laid
low with a sting which almost deprived him of bis eyesight.
Had old Dr. Watts been living at
Sedgebrook farm he would never have
been inspired to moralize on the industry of the "little busy bee," for
it sorely vexes the Bpirit of these
hospital bees to Bee anybody try to
"improve the shining hour." They
themselves are pirates, outlaws, vicious ne'er do weels of the worst type
that bees can descend to. It is their
pleasure that this poor caretaker shall
be one with them in their depravity.
Let him try to do a little gardening, and forth from their hiding place
they sally with as fierce martial music as ever fired Maeterlinck to write
a bee epic. Straight at the would-be
worker they dash, and in a moment
his tools nre dropped and he is flying for refuge.
"Look nt my garden," he said to a
correspondent, waving his hand over
a beautiful situated plot of ground, ���
which, under ordinary conditions,
would be made highly profitable. "It
never gives me what it ought to give.
The truth is, I nm afraid to touch it
except when the bees are indoorB.
All my gardening has to be done either before the bees come out or after
tliey have gone in."

Million Lives Lost to Disease, Which
Shows No Signs of Abatement���Decrease In Bombay District Offset
By Heavy Increase In Bengal and
the Unitsd Provinces���Soldiers in
Good Health.
A blue book chronicling the progress and conditions of India during
the last year has just been published. The moat saddening section of the
book is that which deals with India'a
peculiar  scourge���the  plague.
It appears to have been scarcely
mitigated by all the efforts of mo:
dern medical science. Taking British
India aa a whole, the number of reported deaths from plague in 1905
waa approximately the same as that
of 1904���reaching nearly to the appalling  total   of   1,000.000.
In Bombay there was a marked
abatement, the number of dentba from
plague falling from 224,000 to 71,400.
Tbo central provincea and Madr-is
were also comparatively free The Punjab registered 334,900, as against 396,-
000 in  1904.
Deadly In Bengal.
But in Bengal and the united provinces the disease mado great strides,
the deaths reported from these provinces .mounting to 126,000 and 380,
000  respectively.
Since 1H99 the deaths from plague
have been almost continually on the
increase. They shrank from 139,000 to
92,800 in the year 1900, to rise again
bv leaps and bounds to their present
Still, even in relation to this terrible scourge, there is a gleam of
light and much is hoped from the
plague investigation council. The
medical ofhecre bnve made important
experiments bearing on the relation
of rnt- plague to human plague and
the connection that rat fleaa have
with the spreading of human plague.
Tbe general morality of the vast
peninsula would seem to be improving. Tbe nggrecnte male population of
the country has shown a decided
shrinkage, from 602,433 in 1901, to
558,441 in 1905. The aggregate convict population baa dropped in the
same period from 281,615 to 246,817.

Woman   Undergoes  Ordeal  to   Refute
Accusations  of  Killing.
A remarkable tale of native superstition nnd credulity was told at the
Magistrate's Court recently, when
eight Mnshona natives from the Mire-
was district underwent preliminary
examination for committing certain
offences under tie Witchcraft Suppression Ordinance, sayB The Rhodesia Herald. Tbe eight natives were
all relatives, and the father of some
of tbem diet] recently. Not being quite
sntisfied that death was due to natural
causes, appeal was made to a certain
native named Cbibanda, wbo the
prosecutor stated was a well-known
witch doctor, though this fact was
not elicited in evidence. The outcome of the incantations was that two
of the sons, Manila and Katiwa visited a neighboring kraal and accused a
native woman named Kajiwa of having bewitched their father and caused
his death.
They demanded of the husband oi
this lady that she should undergo nn
ordeal to test the truth of the allegations. The husband asked for three
days' grace, saying he wanted his
wife's uncle to be present at the trial.
When this apace hnd elapsed Chitan-
daria, the husband, accompanied by
his wife and her uncle, a native named
Denti, set out for the kraal at which
tlie ordeal wns to tnke place. On
arrival the party were directed to a
small spruit below the kraal, where
tbe eight natives snt in conclave.
Cbibanda waa master of ceremonies,
nnd sat cooking some liquid in a pot
When thc medicine was cooked the
lady wns told to take a draught. It
wns explained that two draughts of
this medicine would act either as an
emetic or a burgative should the woman be a witch. Two'draughts were
administered, but left the lndy undisturbed.
Cbibanda thereupon again piled the
medicine, evidently determined that
the oracle sbould work, and after the
unfortunate female had taken 21 doses
nature rebelled and the medicine noted in its dual capacity. On this five
of the natives sprang up with assegais and kerries, crying: "There is
the witch who killed our father. Let
us kill her." But the husband and
uncle came to the rescue. After some
discussion the bereaved sons agreed
to be eompenanted, and as a first instalment tbe uncle handed over a kaf-
fir hoe, telling them if they killed
his niece he would inform on them.
The lady and her relatives then went
back to their respective kraals. Three
days afterward the two natives. Ma-
pirn and Katiwa, revisited the lady's
husband nnd demanded the witch to
be handed over to them to be killed.
This he refused to do, and later the
woman escaped to the native commissioner.
Curates Almost Extinct.

Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is, above

which puts new blood into the arteries, and by so doing lays the
foundation for health and vigor.
It sharpens up the appetite,
strengthens the nerves which control
the flow of digestive fluids, forms
new, lirm flesh and tissues, and givjs
vigor to the vital organs of the body.
Mr. Fred H. Gould, Purdy, Hastings Co., Out., writes: "I v/ns

People   Have   Not   Learned   Necessity
ot Stocking Up for Winter.
An advance of 15 per cent, in prices
is a little detail which is presented
for the consideration of the coal consumer in the prairie provinces, and
he is thereby enabled to realize one
of the benefits of an agreement between operators and men in tbe coal
fielda. Qnotationa are 90 cents to $1.50
per ton higher In Regina, and this
increase practically applies to tha
whole Province of Saskatchewan. All
grades of western coal are included.
Prices are atill below the level at
which Pennsylvania coal can compete in these markets, but the difference is slight, and it is possible that
more of the American product may
be used in future.
During the atrenuous days of the
laat coal shortage the companies and
the railways were attacked for their
inability to provide a sufficient supply of fuel. It was argued that tho
public must be served, no matter
what the cost might be. In fact, it
was proclaimed that the consumer
should hnve the coal, because he wss
prepared to pny for it, even if the
price were $20 per ton. But a revolution in the weather has worked a
ehnnge in popular sentiment. Now
thnt the summer, or an advance copy
of it, hns arrived, aid balmy' breezes
nre beinp wafted over the prairies,
the disregard for values in the coal
market ia lesa apparent. Complnints
are henrd. in fnet, becnuse the public
ia called upon to pay the increased
v/ni'es which the miners in the mountains receive. It is considered unfair thnt the consumer should be forced to settle for the ndvnnces which
the operntors hnve chosen to give lo
their men. When the winter comes
back these complaints will probably
congeal. Tbe scramble for coal will
take the place of academic discussions on the economic phases of the
Railway Pays More.
It is interesting to know that the
Canadian Pacific Railway is contributing its abare of the increased
cost of producing coal. It is by for
tbe largeat consumer of steam conl
in the west, nnd its requirements seem
to keep pace with tbe output of the
mines. Il obtains its coal nt a grent
reduction, of course, because it enters into contracts to take delivery
of a large quantity from each mine
every dny. The advances in wages
have made it necessary for the railway company to pny 10 per cent, more
for its conl. and this means n lane
additional expenditure. Thousands
of tons of coal are consumed by locomotives nlone on the diviaions weat
of Winnipeg, nnd nearly all this fuel
comes from the mines which were
affected by the recent settlement.
Consumer Should Stock Up.
There arc mil mnny Indications thnt
the warnings which have been Issued
with reaped 10 nnother shortage of
fuel during the coming winter are being respected. The people of the west
do not often cross a bridge before
they come to it. and they do not intend to worry very seriously over tbe
coal outlook until there is som<* urgent need of concern. It is mor. than
Sossible thnt a wail will ariae next

distress. Much of this trouble would
be obviated if the individual consumers would show enterprise by stocking up during the summer. It is easy
to deliver coal, both from cars and
from the wagons, during such wcnlhei
as this, and the transportation companies nnd coal trade would welcome
an opportunity to supply the needs ol
the public now. The unwillingness ol
tho pub'ic to accept delivery is a disappointing feature of the situation..
No Demand Just Now.
One firm in Regina has several
thousand tons of coal in stock, for
which it would be glad to receive orders, but there is very little demand.
There is no doubt that the money
stringency is partly responsible tor
the dullness in the retail trade, prospective huyers being unwilling to lie
up their coal money for several
months on the presumption of a
shortage. The optimistic spirit of the
country inclines to n hope thnt next
winter will not be severe, at least m>1
so severe na the lost, and thot the
coal problem will present It-wer difficulties. The nctivity in the '.ra'-e
will not coiue before October, unless

rVarnings   Against   Dangers   In   Connection   With   Religious   Life.
The young New York clergyman
who ho8 recently been deposed fiom
the ministry as a result of his arrest
in a Seventh uvenue disorderly houae
while engaged in what he described
as "a slumming expedition." might
have been saved from the disgrace
that has overwhelmed him if be had
taken to heart an injunction which
appears in a late issue of The Homi-
letic  Review:
"Don't go slumming alone. There
are a good many kinds of wickedness
which even a minister does not need
to know very intimately; but if you
ever have occasion to go to a bad
house go with your wife, or with one
of your deacons, and for some oilier
renson   tbnn   curiosity."
This injunction appears as part of
an article on "The Minister nnd Women." in which nnother metropolitan
clergyman (a well-known preacher
who conceals his identity under a
pseudonym) puts his fellow-clergymen
on their guard against certain dangers in connection with the religious
iife which hnve come within his own
experience, and ngainst which, ns he
now regrets, hia seminary profeaaora
failed to give him warning.
He begins the article with a story
about "n woman of perhaps 35, dresa-
ed in blnck, nnd with a genteel nnd
thoroughly respectable appearance,"
who approached his assistant minis
ter at the close of an evening ser-
vice. Her credentials were apparently faultless, and she wormed herself
into his confidence by telling an affecting story of an unhappy marriage,
and of her determination to devote
hor life and money to the Church.
She turned out to be a forger and
blackmailer, and was arrested by the
The writer goes on to speak of other experiences of a similar character:
"I learned how one city minister
received a note from a woman professing to be in trouble, and asking
for an appointment with him nlone;
how he wrote her making bucIi an appointment, and the next day, leaving
bis study, met a man who thrust the
letter in his face, saying: 'Here is
your letter addressed to a woman
whose name in known to everyone in
this city us tbe worst character on
the street; bow much will you give
for it.' I learned of a minister who
admitted to his study a woman with
a sad story, who drew nearer and
nenrer to him in her appeal for sympathy, till at length she flung herself
in his lap, with her arms about his
neck, and at that moment tbe door
opened, and two men asked how
much ho would give to keep this little matter quiet. I learned of another who had repeatedly admitted a
woman who came with a tale of trouble, and whose demeanor throughout
was above reproach; but how in time
the minister waa offered a photograph
of himself silting in bis own study
chair with this woman in his lap.
He was cool enough to examine it
carefully, and found it a clever bit
of photographic patchwork, but access had been obtained to hia study
in bis absence, a photograph had
been made, and his own head, from
another photograph, had been pasted
on, and n new photograph made of
the  combination."

England's Birth Rate.
Babies are slowly, but steadily, declining in popularity in England and
Wales. The annual summary of vital
statistics for these two divisions of
Great Britain repeat the story of a
falling birth rate. The rate for 1906
was 27 per 1,000, and the population
estimated at 34,547,016. This is 2.10
per cent, below the rate for 1005, and
nearly as much below the rate for any
recorded year. The birth rate for London ia 26.7 per 1,000, the lowest ever
teeorded. Calculated on the basis of
possible mothers, the birth rate has
fnllen .27 per cent, in 36 years, or,
taking married women alone, the decrease is .22 per cent. If the fertility
of married women proportionately had
been identical in 1370 and in 1906, the

"It is difficult to say which is the

Canadian  Meat  In Britain.
While agreeing with the view that
the exclusion of Canadian cattle from
Britain is unjustifiable for the reason
officially assigned, there has been no
Inclination to regard tlie regulation
ns altogether adverse to the true interest of the Dominion. To encourage
the shipping of cattle in a raw and
underfed condition in order that tbey
may be finished in Britain is to discourage not only an important branch
of stock raising but also a number
of dependent arfd allied businesses
which ought to find a natural home in
Canada. The proper policy is to finish cattle here and to develop the
cold storage trade. In that way the
by-products, soch as hides, horns,
etc., etc.. will hi *one the raw material of other home manufactures and
thus assist tho development of Canada aa an industrial community.
At a recent session of tlie beef commission in Much od, Alberta, tbe chief
witness wns Dr. Duncnn McEchrnne,
lnte manager of the WaKron ranch,
who has also b en dean of the veterinary faculty of McGill University,
chief veterinary inspector of stock for
the Dominion and vice-president of
the noted Coclvntie ranch. He strongly advised the feeding of all Canadian
cattle, because it would pay directly,
and stockmen most do it if they are
to establish a demand for Canadian
meat in the old country market and
cope with that from other countries.
From his experience both in Canada
and in England Dr. McEchrane expressed the opinion that Cnnadian
cattle were put on the market before
they were "ripe." There has been
general agreement among the other
witnesses exnmii'od before the commission thnt the only possible or satisfactory solution of the cattle question in Weatern Canada is for the

though how it enme to he there enn-
not be satisfactorily explained. It wns
lying in clny, which apparently hnd
not been disturbed for centuriei, and
the discovery will be carefully followed up with tbe hope that other relics
may be unearthed. The anchor will
be sent to the Smithsonian Institute*..
It is thought the anchor may be a
relic of a little band of Norsemen
whom Leif Erikson left at the coast
of North America centuries ago, the
presumption being that at that time
the Red River Valley was a portion of
Lake Winnipeg, making navigation
from the Atlantic to Dakota possible.

"Everything in turn," he replied.
"Well," snid his Interlocutor, "If

Statistics Say That  tn  England,  Imprisonment for  Debt  Is  Increasing.
It will come as a surprise to many
people that imprisonment for debt in
England is steadily increasing. Figures demonstrating this are given in
Pnrt II. of the Civil Judicial Statistics for 1905. just issued. During thnt
year 11,427 debtors were imprisoned
in England and Wales, as against
11,096 in tbe previous year, and the
average of 10 218 for the Ave yeara
including 1905. Twenty years before
1905, the report states, there were
only about one-third as many warrants of commitment issued and about
one-half as many debtors imprisoned.
There was an increase in 1905 of
petitions for divorce ��� 752 as againat
720 in 1904��� but the figures were not
so large aa in 1902 and 1903, when
they were 889 and 824 respectively.
Of the 752 petitions in 1905, 323 were
presented by wives, as against 429
in 1904. Decrees nisi were granted to
wives in 261 cases and to husbands
in 362 enaea.
The total number of appeals, actions, etc., heard and determined in
all the civil courts of the country
during 1905 was 479,165, againat 497,-
334 in 1904. Ol tfnese, however, county courts were responsible for 472,123
and 489,-Wfl respectively. In the section devoted to probate matters it is
incidentally mentioned that the total
wealth of private persons in the
United Kingdom in 1905 liable to
death duties was computed nt ��7,-
i-\3*'.300,000. During 1905 the gross
value of estates admitted to probate
was ��261,110,000.

A pill that acts upon the stomach
and yet is so compounded that certain ingredients of it preserve their
power to act upon the intestinal
canals, so as to clear them of excreta, the retention of which cannot but
be harmful, was long looked for by
the medical profess'on. It was found
in Parmelee's Vegetable Pills, which
nre the result of much expert study,
and are scientifically prepared as a
laxative and an alterative in one.

Maori   Legends.
Many of the old Maori tales have
to do with n mythical monster, called
"Taniwhn," usually described na a
grea't lizard or cocodile, although il
has been many centuries since nny ol
the Polynesinn ruce can have bad direct knowledge of the existence ol
such an animal. This is the legend ol
the two Taniwhns, the guardian mon
Bters of the two Maori tribes; one or
the east const, and one on the weal
coast of the North Island of New Zea
land in very ancient times, Tht
Taniwha living in the Bay of Island*,
once went a-roving to see a bit ol
the world, and swam around the North
Cape to the west, where he was bos*
pitablj  intertained.
The wandering Taniwha professed
to be very grateful for the hospitality
and kind attention shown to him, and
when his visit was ended he pressed
the other to accompany him home
The guileless and amiable west coast
Taniwka accepted the invitation, and
away the two friends swam around tbe
North Cape and down the east coast
to the Bay of Islands. The roaming
Taniwha waa a perfidious villain. He
lured his confiding guest to a place
where the Maoris had spread a great
net, nnd the visitor was caught, dragged ashore and killed by the people
wbo made a great feast of the carcass
Ths New Theology.
The Rev. R. J. Campbell being an-,
nounced  to  prench   at  Burslem,  the
Rev. H. M. Redgrave, a local clergyman,   took   the    somewhat    unusual
course of making a public protest, ll
was in these terms: "I, the vicar of
St.  Paul's Parish,  Burslem, desire <\
to   be   known   that  as  an    orthodox
Christian     I     emphatically     protest

regret, thnt his visit is to be utilized

of    worahip    in     Buralem.���(Signed

intended,  the  protest seems  to  have
miscarried,   for   althoucb   ndmissinr
to the Burslem Drill Hall, where thi
lermon  wns delivered,  involved  con
tribution of nnything from  6d  to 2'

Favorite Vehicle of British Metropolis
Severely   Criticized.
Did you ever see a fat man losing
.round as he runs to catch a train?
Probably. If so you have seen the
nearest human equivalent to the
speed of n London omnibus. The London omnibus���or "bus." as it is commonly termed- is not a thing to be
considered lightly. There is something
10 solemn nnd awe-inspiring in its
toady lnck of speed that words fail
'he pasaenger who fain would hurry;
ind anyway his thoughts could have
10 legitimate expression under exiting Inws.
The fat mnn losing ground while
���uniting to cntcb a train -is liable to

'.ondou 'bus passenger who feels that
1 train must b�� caught, or that n
lestinntion must be renched within
iny riven time.
After one hns seen a London 'bus

They see n fearsome mountain of mud

If thnt brilliant but misguided map

a loyal fleet of London 'buses when
he tried to cross the English Channel

that Nelson had in his service several bontlonds of men well qualified
to drive 'buses, and their resolute
methods of driving through obstacles
won Trafalgar and made famouB the
saying, "England expects every man
to do his duty."
Although the all conquering spirit
of the London 'bus has imbued British armies for hundreds of years the
symbol itself has not been used 11
wnrfare. However, the War Office and
the Admiralty mny yet advocate thc
use of squadrons and batteries rf

of this trial correspondence was impounded in which the names of n'
less than six peers were implicated

The launching of the King's new-
yacht, Alexandria, at Glasgow, by
Princess Louise, Duches* of Argyll,
marks another notch in Scotland's
record as yacht builder to the royalties of the world. The Alexandra is
the first of the modern British vessels
of this type to bo built north of the
Tweed, but Scotland can claim to
have given of the best her shipbuilders-can provide to the rulers of Italy,
Spain. Portugal, Roumania, and Siam,
while in England yachts have been
constructed for the Czar of Russia,
the Emperor of Austria, the King of
Greece, and the Sultan of Turkey.
There are altogether twenty-two nf
these vessels afloat, and the British
Isles are responsible for fifteen oi
them, and Scotland for eleven.
In point of size, the Alexandra���
so named, of course, in honor of the
Queen���is by no means exceptional,
ft is 300 feet in length and will displace about 2,000 tons, which is less
than naif the displacement of the German and Russian imperial yachts. In
fact, its only exceptional feature will
be found in its engine rooms, for,
since it is the first ship of the class
to be built since the advent of the
turbine���its inmediate predecoesor being the Victoria and Albert, designed
in 1896���it ia naturally the first to be
equipped with that system of propulsion. It will, nevertheless, have a
moderate speed, only seventeen knots
being anticipated, which is lower than
that of any other seagoing royal yacht
in existence.

Begging has long been illegal in
London, and offenders nre liable to
various terms of imprisonment. Nevertheless, thousands in London evade
the law and live in comfortable idleness on the weak complaisance if
the workers. The annual report of tbo
London Mendicant Society, juBt issued, states that it probably is no exaggeration to say that more than
$500,000 is annually given haphazard
to beggars in the streets of London,
and that probably the average beggar
earns more than the average work-
vngman. The society, which exists
to investigate the begging business,
to help deserving cases, and to assist
in punishing incorrigibles, possesses
