Lent 40 Days-Think it Out.
If you ask fifty  pcrn.ini  how inanv
days there are in Lent it I. cafe betting
that  they will all reply 40.    Yes, and
the very people who should be authorities on the subject will say fo too.   In
this connection micll [amusement was
caused  this  week   in town.    It ia conceded that Easier Sunday fall, on April

corroborate it.    Nov,  count back forty
days,  and  if  there are  forty days in
Lent you will  pcihaps be surprised to
discover.that the foitieth day is March
llth, and that tbat dny is a Wednesday.
The Church  says  Wednisday  of   thia
week, March 4, is'Ash Wednes lay, but
in that respect thecaleiiders say No.   We

Note, we will lay a elight Bbade of
odds "thnt there are only 40 days in
Lent.   Here ia what Webster saye:
" Lemt.���Tbe time of fasting forty

What are you going to do about it ?
The present arrangement calls  for 40
days.   Who's right and who's wrong ?

NOTES FROM NAKUSP.
From our Corresoondent.
There is a big " move on " at Silver-
ton. The poat office is tiansferred to
the McKinnon block; Mrs. Carey ia
contemplating going into moro commodious prem'ses for her grocery store;
Fred. Lu-bscher, the tailor king, is
doing tbe same.
T. II. Wilson was up from Silverton
Wednesday.
Mrs. Carey has purchased an half interest in the McKinnon block at Silver-
ton.;
On Tuesday evening last Mr. and Mrs.
F. W. Jordan gave a children's fancy
dress Ball in Abriel's Hall and it
proved tp be a very enjoyable affair.
Tlie costumes of the children were
beautiful, and reflected great credit
upon their mothers. The first part of
the evening was given over to tho children, and they tr.ivo an excellent exhibition of dancing. After the children
had departed, the elder people were
also entertainer), dancing being the
chief amusement. At twelve o'clock
everybody eat down to a spread fit for
a prince. Thesnpper was, well, simply grent.   The people  of Nakusp are
Was a Splendid Concert.
"The best concert given in Sandon
for a long time," is how one gentleman
spoke of the Methodist Church concert
of February 28. Probably no one will
dissent from this verdict. The pro
gram was so uniformly good that it is
difficult to particularize, but the piano
and violin solos of Mrs. Rankine and
Mr. Nicholson are deserving ef special
notice. Mrs. Riinkine's rendering of
tbe valse by Tito Mattei, and Paderew-
ski's " Morceau Characleristique," was
greatly enjoyed. Mr. Nicholson played
Irish and Scotch airs and Wieniawski's
" Legend " with a delicacy of phrasing
and Interpretative tas'.o rarely found
among amateur violinists. On Sunday
evening he assisted in a service of aong

The New Denver rink presented a gay
appearance  laat  Saturday   night,   the
occasion being the last carnival of the
season.   There was a good sized crowd
of  masqueraders,   mostly  gents;   the
email attendance of ladies in costume
being due, no doubt, to events of   this
kind coming rather too close together
to allow  of  costumes  being prepared.
Music was supplied by the St. James'
orchestra  under the condactorship of
Mr. M. McLean,  which was a decided
attraction.   The prists were awarded as

There being a spell of frost this week,

It haa been in-fgeited that a Marathon
road race would be a great attraction
for  Victoria  Day at New Denver, and
we tee no reaaon why the matter should
not be taken up seriously unit without
delay by the Celebration committee. It
would certainly prove a  novel attraction anl a big draw.   The road between
Silverton and New Denver would provo
an admirable  course,  and   we  suggest
a run from Silverton.    So that a  large
number of spectators might witneis the
start and finish, it would he reasonable
to line the competitors up at tlie Silver-

forward and offer a trophy.

are weak and one or two are strong,
these latter perhaps nearly as strong
as the leader. It is they which require
to be watched or thev will start racing
for aupremary with the leader. Put
them in thoir right place right away.
Cut them back to within three buds or
so of the item. Tha buds litre will be

next year. The following year the
procets will be much the same. The
leader will be treated practically as was
the whole tree the year before. The
lower tier of branches will probably
have made two ormore shoots. Almost
invariably one will be enough to leave
and that should be cut back towards
the extremity or about one-third from
the tip. The next year will be time
enough for these side branches to have
side shoots.
third spbing. The next year will be
a [repetition of the first and second except that their will be an additional
tier of branchss to prune. The treatment of this lower tier, this year, will
be somewhat similar in principle to
that of the leader the first year. The
cutting of the preceding year will probably have resulted in two or three strong
ahoots growing from the end and one or
two weaker shoots growing further in on
it. Of the strong shoots at the end but
one should be left and that cut back as
before, about one-third; of tbe others one
or two may be left as there is room or
not.
After this, if all has gone right, as it
will have done with a normal well-
growing tree handled as suggested, the
tree may be considered to be formed
and it It usually unneccesaary to continue cutting baek the leading thoots.
The leader will bs firmly established
and the tree will tend to keep tho form
in which it has been trained. Subsequent shaping will simply consist of
thinning out superfluous shoots and
branches, keeping a -balance between
all side boughs.
The idea to keep in view ia to give
tlie leader the preference when cutting
out; that ie, if a shoot from the centre
is crowding a shoot from a side bough
it ie the latter that must give away.

eonsemiently much relieved when, as
Guy joined them, hp becran at once to
speak  of Lucy,  telline  of the letter,
and her renuest  for Maddy's picture.
"Me'  Mine?    You    cannot    mean
that?"   Mnddv   e-olnimed.   her   eyes
opening wide  with wonder, but Guy
did   mean   it,   and   began  to  plan  a
drive on  tbe  morrow to Devonshire,
where there was at that time a tolerably fair artist.
Accordintrlv. the next day the four
went down to Devonshire, calling first
upon the doctor, whose jace brightened when he heard why they had come.
During tbe weel," that bad passed the
doctor had not been blind to all that
was   passing   at   Aikenside,   and   the
fear that Guv was more interested in
Maddy  than   he  ought  to    be    had
grown  almost  to  a  certainty.    Now,
however, he wns not so sure. Indeed,
the fact that Guv bad told her of Lucy
Atherstone would indicate    that   his
suspicions   were   groundless,   and   he
entered heartily into the picture plan,
sayinjr laughingly that if he supposed
Miss Lucv  would  lilr-e  his  face he d
git himself,  nnd  bidding  Guy to be
sure  to  ask   her.    The  doctor's  gay
spirits helped  raise  those of Maddy,
nnd ns that little bnrnine spot in her
heart was fast wearing away, she was
in just the mood for a most admirable
likeness.  Tndeed.  the  artist's delir-ht
at his  achievement  was  unbounded,
ps he declared it the very best picture
be had ever taken. Tt was beautiful,
even  Aenes  acknowledged to herself,
while Jessie went into raptures, and
Maddv  blushed   to    bear    her    own
praises. Guy said nothing, except to

stairs. Guv lim**e>���d behind, and when
sure they were o"t of hearing, said in
a low v.ice:
"You mnv as "'"'I finish both; they

sitting, slip begr/ad of Guy to get it
for her. "thnt wc- n dear brother."
But the "dear b-other" did not seem
inclined to comply witb ber request,
putting her off. until, despairing of
success, Jessie, when nlone with the
doctor, tried her powers of persuasion
on him, eonvinjr until in self-defense
be crossed the street, and entering
the daeuerrean gallery askpd for the
remaining picture of Miss Clvde, say-
ine thnt he wished it for little Miss
Remington.
"Mr. Remineton took them both."
the artist replied, commencing a dissertation on the style and benuty of
the young girl, nil 'of which wns lost

maze, quitted the room, nnd returning
to Jessie, snid "I,, her carelessly: "He
hasn't it. You know they nib out
those thev do tint use. So you'll have
to do without: nnrl. JoftBie. I wouldn't
tell Guy I tri��d to p��l it for you."
Jessie wondered why she must not
tell Guy, but tlie fact that the doctor
requested her nm was sufficient. Consequently, Guy little guessed that
the doctor knew what it wns he carried so carefully in his coat pocket,
looking nt it earnestly when at home
and alone in bis own room, admiring
ita soft, girlish beauty, half shrinking
from the life!'* > expression of the
larpe, bright eyes, and trying to convince himself that his sole object in
pettinp it was to give it to the doctor
after  Mnddy  was gone!  It would  be
such a surprise, and the doctor would
he so glud, that Guy finally made
himself believe that he had done a
m-v** _*Ptiero"s thing!
"I am going to send Lucy your picture to-day, and as she asked that you
should write ber a few lines, suppose
you do it now," Guy said to Maddy
next morning, ns they left the breakfast table.
It was a sore trial to Maddy to
write to Lucy Atherstone, but she offered no remonstrance, and so accompanying tlie picture was a little
not- filled mostly with praises of Mr.
Guy, and which would be very gratifying to the unsuspecting Lucy.
Now that it was fully decided for
Jessie to go witli Mnddy. her lessons
were suspended, and Aikenside for
the time being was turned into a
vast dreBsmakine and millinery establishment. Witb his usual generosity, Guy hnd iriven Agnes permission to draw upon his purse for what-
���?*���"���- was needed, either for herself or
Jessie with tbe definite understanding
that Mnddv Rbonld have an equal
share of dress and attention.
'It will not b** necessary." he said,

,jj.n'-��� waa wearing away, particularly
as of late she had seen no signs of
special attention on the doctor's part.
He had gotten over his weakness, she
thought,   and   so   was   very   gracious
toward Maddy, who, naturally forgiving, began to like her better than she
had ever dreamed it possible for her
to like so proud and haughty a woman. Down at the cottage in Honedale
there  were   many  consultations  held
and many fears expressed by the aged
couple as to what  would  be the result of all  Guy  was doing for their
child.   Womanlike,   Grnndma    Markham felt a flutter of pride in thinking
that Maddy was going to school in a
big city like New York.  It gave ber
something to talk about with ber less
fortunate   neighbors,   who   wondered,
and gossiped,  and  envied,  but could
not bring themselves to feel unkindly
towards  the  girl  Maddy,    who    bad
grown up in their midst, and who, as
yet,  was wholly  unchanged  by  prosperity.  Grandpa  Markham,    on    the
contrary, though pleased that Maddy
should have every opptfFtunity for acquiring the education she so much desired, was fearful of the result���fearful lest there might come a time when
his   darling   would   shrink   from   the
relations  to  whom   she  was  as  sunshine  to the  flowers.   He  knew  that
the difference between Aikens.de and
the cottage must strike her unpleasantly every time she came home, and
he did not blame her for her always
apparent readiness to go back. That
was natural, he thought, but a life in
New  York,  that  great  city  which  to
the  simple-hearted   old   man  seemed
a very Babylon of iniquity, wss different, and for a time he demurred to
sending her there. But Guy persuaded
him. and when be heard that Agnes
was (-nine;, too. he consented, for he
had   faith   in   Acnes  ns   a   protector.
Maddy  had  never  told  him  of    the
scene   wliich   followed     that    lady's
return from Saratoga. Indeed, Maddy
never told nnything but good of Aikenside or its inmates, and so Mrs. Agnea
came in for a share of the old people's gratitude,    while    even    Uncle
Joseph, hearing daily a prayer for the
"young madam,"  as grandpa termed
her, learned to pray for her himself,
coupling ber name with that of Sarah,
and asking in his crazy way that God
would "forgive Sarah" first, and then
"bless  the  madam���the  madam���the
madam."
A few days before Maddy's departure, grandpa went up to see "the madam"; anxious to know something
mo* than hearsay nbout a person to
whose care his child was to be part-nil,- intrusted. Agnes was in her
room when told who wanted to see
ueauiy wuiie 'lAdi lUttutyrr" * *V.no
brought the message, flew to her side,
asking in much alarm, what was the
matter.
"Only a little faint. It will soon
pass off," Agnes said, and then, dismissing Maddy, she tried to compose
herself sufficiently to pass the ordeal
she so much drended, nnd from which
there was no possible escape.
Thirteen years! Had they changed
her past recognition? She hoped, she
believed so, and vea, never in her life
had Agnes Remington's heart beaten
with so much terror nnd apprehension as when sbe entered the reception room where Guy sat talking with
the infirm old man she remembered
so well. He had grown older, thinner,
poorer looking, than when she saw
him last, but in his wrinkled fnce
there was the same beni; ant. heavenly exprpssion which, wbtii she was
better than she was now, used to remind her of the ancels. His snowy
hair was parted inst the same as ever,
but the mild blue eye was dimmer,
and it rested on her with no suspicious glance, ns, partinlly reassured,
she glided ncross the threshold, and
bowed civilly when Guy presented
her.
A little anxious as to how her
grandfather would acquit himself,
Maddy sat by, wondering wby Agnes
appeared so ill at ease, and why her
erandsire started sometimes nt' the
sound of her voice, and looked earnestly nt her.
"We've never met before to my
'���"" "'"dee, young woman," he said
once to Aenes, "hut you are mighty
like somebody, and your voice, when
you talk low. keeps makin' me jump
as if I'd heard it sum'ers or other."
After that Agnes spoke in elevated
tones, as if she thought him deal, and
the mystified look of wonder did not
return to his face. Numerous were
the charges he gave to Alice concerning Mnddv. bidding her be watchful of his child, and see that she did
no', "get too much drinked in with
the wicked things on Broadway'."
then, as he arose to go, he laid bis
trembling hand on her head and said
solemnly: "You nre young yet, Indv.
and there may be a long life before

day. We all pra. Ior you, lady, Jos
eph and all, though I doubt me Ik
knows much thc meaning of what b_
says."
"Who, sir? What did you say?" and
Agnes' face wus scarlet, as grandpa
replied: 'Joseph, our unfortunate
boy; Maddy must have told you, tbe
one who's taken such a shine to Jessie. He's crazy-like, and from the
corner where he sits so much, I can
hear him whispering by the hour,
sometimes of folks he used to know,
and then of you, who we call madam.
He says for ten minutes on the
stretch* 'God biess the madam���the
madam���the madam!' You're sick,
lady*, talkin' abo it crazy folks makes
you faint," grandpa added, hastily,
ns Agnes turned white as the dress sho
wore.
"No-oh, no, I'm better now," Agnes gasped, bowing him to the door
with a feeling that she could breathe
no longer in bis presence.
He did not. hear her faint cry of
bitter, bitter remorse, as he walked
through the hall nor know she watched bim as he wnt slowly down the
walk, stopping '.'ten to admire tiie
fair b1n��flO*nf_ ��*' ;cb Mnddy did not
fee, "I libvitv t.   oick.
'He   loved   fi*   Ters,"   Agnes   whispered, as her b   ter nature prevailed
over every  othe    feeling,  and,'Start-
\ ing   eagerly   foi ..ard,   she   ran   after
the old  man,  who,  surprised  at  her
I evident haste, waited a little anxious-
i ly for-her to speak.
It was rather difficult to do so with
Maddy's inquirin: eyes upon her, but
Agnes managed nt last to" say:
"Does that crr.'.y man like flowers
���the one who prays for the madam?"
"Yes, he used to years ago," grandpa replied; and bending down, Agnes began to pi"1 and arrancre into a
most tasteful lviquet the blossoms
and buds of May, glowing so profusely within the borders.
"Take them to him, will you?" and
her hand shook as she passed to
Grandna Markham the gift which
would thrill poo* crazy Joseph with
a strange deli"' ��� ma'ung him hold
converse a wli*' with the unseen
presence which e called "she," and
then whisper b'essings on the madam's bead.

four left Aikensb1 \ which presented a
most forlorn an'' cheerless appearance to tbe passers-by, who were glad
almost as tlie servants when, at the
expiration of a week, Guy came back
and took up bis olden life of solitude
and loneliness, with nothing in particular to interest him, except his
books nnd tlie litters he wrote to
Lucy; unless, indeed, it were those
he was going to write to Maddy, who,
with Jessie, hnd promised to become
hi. correspondent. Nothing but these
and the picture the doctor's picture���
the one designed expressly for him,
ai. which troubled hiin greatly. Believing that he bad fully intended it
for the doctor, Guy felt as if it were,
in a measure, stolen property, and
this made him prize it all the more.

missed her terribly, wondering how
he had ever lived without her, and
sometimes working himself into a

that he was very lonely, that Lucy':

DIRECTIONS TO PREPARE SIMPLE
HOME MADE MIXTURE
Tells You  How to Overcome  Rheumatism With Simple Recipe, Which
Is Easily Mixed
A well-known authority on Rheumatism gives the readers of a large Montreal daily imper tlie following valuable, yet simple and harmless prescription, whicli any one can easily
prepare at home:
F'uM Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparlla, three
ounces.
Mix by shaking well in a bottle,
and take teaspoonful after each meal
and at bedtime.
He states that tbe ingredients can
be obtained from any good prescription pharmacy at smnll cost, and,
being of vegetable extraction, are
Harmless to take.
This pleasant mixture, if taken regularly for a few days, is said to overcome almost any case of Rheumatism.
t'he pain and swelling, if any, diminishes with each dose, until permanent results are obtained, and without injuring the stomach. While there
are many so-culled Rheumatism remedies, patent medicines, etc., some
of which do give relief, few really
give permanent results, and the above
will, no doubt, be greatly appreciated
by many sufferers here at this time.

power to protect its wearer from harm

This Imperial talisman, a mnssixe
gold ring witli a square, dark-colored
stone, which the Emperor is said to
wear on the middle finger of liis left
hand, has a highly romantic history,
dating from the far-off days when his
ancestors, the inargrnf.s of Nureinbuig.

of the holy sepulcher from the Moslems
The ring, whicli was captured in a
hard fought battle under the walls ol
Jerusalem, came into the possession
of Margraf Ulricli, from whom it has
descended to his successors, generation after generation, ns a highly priz
���-I heirloom. The sentence from tlie
Koran whicli adorned the ring when
worn by Snladin and his successors

engraved in  its place.

To liis soldiers he is "Alarm Kaiser,"
because he will rouse a garrison oi

U "Gondola Hilly," for liis knack ol

li* is "Tbe Traveling Kaiser," on account of his propensity for unwearying  journeyings  to  and  fro.
"Nice nicknames, upon my wortl!"
said His Majesty one day. "However
they all depict me as a busy man,

The late King of Portugal bad even
worse taste in the matter of cigars,
whicli were usually not only black

POPULAR FALUC.E?.
Mr. A. S. E. Ackermann Hastens the
End  ol  Cherished   Delusions.
To unlearn is a much harder task
than to louni. So, ut least, we art
assured by Mr. A. S. E. Ackermann
whose recently published volume, entitled "Popular Fallacies," lias undoubtedly hastened the end of man>
cherished delusions wliich hitherto
seemed fated to die a lingering death.
In his preface, Mr. Ackermann
states that his object is not merel.
t*i outline the fallacies���from wliich.
by the way, he rigidly excludes all
to'sliow'cxiicuj*llf!.*. .,ls...{.ar .__! P��?sibl_3:
and in the main he has succeeded.
Here, for example, ia bow Mr.
Ackermann disposes of the very common fallacy "that the sun when shining upon a fire in a grate or stove
puts it out":���
If it be a bright sunny day, whether in thc autumn or winter, one
does not feel so cold as on a duy (of
the same temperature) which is damp
and dull; consequently the fire does
not receive the assiduous attention
it does on the dull, damp day, and
it expresses its feelings by going
out or getting very low. Again, the
contrast between the firelight und the
the dim light of the dull duy; hence
the lire appears to be burning less
brightly when the sunlight is on it
than it really is; and if you will take
thc trouble, next time the opportunity
occurs, of pulling down the blinds
s) as to darken the room, you will
find the fire appears brighter at once.
It could not have "burnt up" in the
minute it took you to let the blinds
down.
Literary misconceptions, Mr. Ackermann reminds ns nre more numerous
than we are inclined to think, nnd
the examples he gives, under the beading of "General Misinformation," appear to bear out liis contention. How
many of us have cherished the fond
delusion that the "Land o' the Leal"
means Scotland, and that the "Heart
ot Midlothian" is another iiame for
Scotland's c'pit-1? As a ma'ter of
fact, says Mr. Ackerman. the "Land
o' the Leal" isn't Scotland at all:
It is a mythical land of happiness.

It was in olden times a fnvorite place
for the meeting of tbe Irish Parliament, and in a Parliament hidden in
ibis cathedral the exclusion of Catholics from tbe Irish Parliament WW
effeoted. In 1487 Lambert Simnel, the

BARMAIDS ARE TO STAY.
Home Secretary Says to Abolish Them
Would   Result   in   Disaster.
The British barmaid is safe. At
least she will not be legislated out of
existence by the present Liberal Government. The report was circulated
that Home Secretary Gladstone was
contemplating tbe inclusion of a
clause in his forthcoming bill relating
to the reform of the license law. that
should declare the employment of
girls and women in bars illegal.
A deputation accordingly waited upon the Home Secretary for the purpose of showing him that such legislation would inflict great harm upon
a large nnd generally deserving class
of women, nnd that barmaids, on the
whole, were better paid and better
looked after than women of any other
trade  followed  by  Englishwomen.
Mr. Gladstone in reply, said the
Government realize tbat any drastic
provisions to check, diminish, or put
an end to the employment of women
behind tbe bar might have an immediate result far more disastrous
than nny mischiefs accruing from the
present system.
"I have lived in this world half a
century," he added, "and I have not
been a teetotaler, and I certainly had
my full share of experience of the conditions of employment in licensed
premises nt one time of my life���I am
not, I would have you understand,
alluding to my recent years. Speaking
of these earlier days, I may say there
were few queer holes or dark corners
in London that I did not explore.
"Indeed, I may go so far as to say
that in the search for truth���as I hope
it was���and of legitimate knowledge,
I was brought to n knowledge of conditions which are perhaps hidden
even from those whom I have the
honor to address. I do not wish to
exaggerate anything, but I do think
there are conditions in certain places
which nre morally, physically, and
economically bad."
The Times says that the reformers
havo not provided other employment
for the hundred thousand women now
behind bars. It asks: "Are they to
compete for places in the tea shops?
The tearoom girl is exposed to more
temptation of a certain kind than
the barmaid."
Buy Coal  In Britain.
A German syndicate has acquired
2,000 acres in the Kentish coal fields,
and is arranging to start work at
once between Dover and Canterbury.
About twelve months ngo some coal
mining experts from Westphalia paid
a visit to the Dover colliery works,
and were very much struck with the
similarity of the statu to those in
some of the best German coal fields.
A second visit was paid to Dover
about six months ago, ami since tbat
time negotiations have been going on
for the acquisition of part of the proved land between Dover and Canterbury.
Experts were sent from Westphalia
to make full enquiries on behalf of
a syndicate of Berlin bankers and
financiers. Tliey returned to Berlin
aft,*r completing enquiries, which
were so satisfactory thnt a contract
for the purchase of 2,000 acres was
entered  into.
The site selo.ted by the Germans
will be the nearest pit to the port of
Dover, the area being only about two
miles  inland.
Among tbe conl seams proved at
Dover is one of very valuable steam
coal, to wliich. it is stated the Ger

ENGLAND'S GAMBLING ROOM.
3ritish Journals Protest That Limerick
Craze Should Be Stopped.
Many people are asking wherein the
Limerick competitions of tbe English
>eriodicals differ from lotteries and
���allies. The claim is made by the
irganizers of the contests that every
'fifth line" to these complete verses iB
tveighed in the balance. But judging
tlike from the enormity of the task
md the worthlessness of some of the
prize-winning answers, it is gravely
ioubtful whether the scrutiny is very
���lose. It is urged on many sideB that
Limerick competitions are lotteries
pure and simple, and should be suppressed.
One weekly, after retaining over
*2,000 has still $16,500 left for distribution. The first twenty competitors
nill each receive $625 for a line of
ll'.eged poetry. The vast sum received
ihows how extensive is the new craze,
for it comprises 150,000. sixpences.
That each of these answers is carefully examined is a contention that
tan scarcely be accepted.
The judging is supposedly done by
the editor and some novelist of standing. But The British Weekly claims
that the real work is done as follows:
--In the first place a number of clerks
Open the envelopes, carefully remove
the "tanners," and throw in the
waste-paper basket such lines thst
make no attempt at scanning. Further sifting takes place, and finally a
few hundred answeis nre sent up to
the referees for final adjudication.
Frequently it hnppens that two contestants send in identically the same
lines; one gets a large cash prize and
the other is ignored. But the aggrieved one. having agreed to accept
tbe editor's decision as final, has no
redress.
Advertisements are also published
of firms that will Supply missing lines
Ior such people as have not enough
poetic invention to write their own
guesses. Most of these lines incline
to that lowest form of wit-puns. But
the claim is made that many purchasers at these poetic tips have carried off substantial prizes.
The suggestion is also made by
London Truth that many faulty and
foolish lines are included among the
prize-winners to gull into the competition a class of people who in any
bona-fide contest of brain would not
have the least possible chance. While
not making any insinuation aa to the
probity of the judges, it will be interesting to read a Limerick that has
just captured a $225 reward of merit���

BURGLARS II OLD LONDON.
Gangs  of  Recently   Released  Thieves
Seem  to   Cause   Epidemic.
London and the suburbs are suffering from a burglary epidemic more
serious than any hitherto experienced
in the neighborhood of the metro^
polis.
North, south, east and west, expert
gangs are at work making rich hauls.
Many of them are masked burglars
and do not hesitate, when the circumstances require it, to display, if not to
use, arms.
Cricklewood is one of the districts
most affected, and a veritable reign
of terror exists among householders
there. Gangs are also exceptionally
busy in Surbiton and the surrounding country, where ui least a dozen
daring burglaries have taken place of
late.
"The view taken by the police," a
prominent insurance official says, "is
that the extraordinary prevalence of
burglary is due to Herbert Gladstone's action in granting wholesale
remission of sentences to criminals
Berving terms of imprisonment under
six months.
"This mistaken act of clemency haa
resulted in London and the suburbs
being flooded with thieves and burglars, who have taken advantage of
their unexpected freedom to exercise
their talents during-, the dark and
foggy autumn nights."
The police are not indifferent or inactive, though they are largely blamed
by the sufferers. Every article stolen
has been fully described, and complete lists have been sent round to
jewelers and pawn-brokers.
Special plain clothes men have been
put on, with instructions to watch for
any ticket-of-leave man or ex-convict
who  may  be  prowling around.
"There are many of these characters
of whom we have lost trace," said a
Scotland Yard detective to an Express
representative recently.
"I firmly believe that it is these
men who are doing the mischief. They
have quitted their usual haunts, and
are ns slippery as ells. But they will
be taken sooner or Inter."

lying on his dying bed with consumption was recommended by his own
brother and sister, in the presence of
us, to take Psychine, as it had cured
both of them, an heriditary predisposition to 'ung weakness being somewhat strongly marked in the family.
The answer was, "Yes, if the doctor
recommends it." But, as was to be
expected, the doctor said, "Ob, I can
give just as good medicine as Psychine." Result: Tbe doctor's patient,
who got "just as good medicine as
Psvchine," is in his cold, cold grave
today, while his brother and sister,
botli of whom were pronounced as
hopeless consumptives by the best
physicians, through taking Psychine
are* as healthy specimens of humanity
as can be found. The brother wbo had
been cured, said to the writer, beside
the grave of his brother, "What fools
we mortals be," referring to his brother's following the advice of an unwise medical adviser.
"I herewith send my photo and testimonial for Psychine. I was given up
IG yeurs ago as an incurable consumptive, by Prof. Lyman, Hush Medical
College", Chicago. I suffered several
vears after this until I heard of Psychine, und through it I wns restored
to perfect health, which 1 have enjoyed, for the past ten years. My
sickness began first with catarrh of
the head. I readily advise catarrh
and la grippe sufferers to take Psychine.
"MRS. A. WELLS,
"Lyndull,  Man."
Psychine (pronounced si-keen) is
the most wonderful cure known to
medical science for coughs, colds, la
grippe, catarrh, pneumonia, pleurisy
night sweats, chills, wasting diseases,
consumption and stomach troubles.

DOCTOR  WANTED  TO  AMPUTATE
Woman's Toe Saved bv Zam-Buk
But for the timely arrival of a box
of Zam-Buk, Mrs. E. Pi Fonger, 34
Mvrtle St., St. Thomas, Ont., would
have lost her toe. She says: "For
about nine months I suffered cruelly
from the effects of having a corn removed from my little toe, for with its
removal a hole remained and my toe
was in a terrible state. For months I
was unable to wear a shoe and as the
toe showed no signs of healing and
was in such a shocking condition the
Doctor thought it necessary to amputate it. About this time I received a
sample box of Zam-Buk and began using it on my toe. The first application
gave me the greatest ease from pain
and encouraged me to give Zam-Buk
a thorough trial. Two months alter
commencing with Zam-Buk there was
no sign of a hole for the flesh had
grown in very firmly and all soreness
and pains were entirely banished.
Zam-Buk brought about this healing
when all other remedies failed."
Zam-Buk heals cuts, bruises, old
wounds, running sores, eczema, ulcers, boils, eruptions, scalp sores, itch,
piles, chapped hands, bums, scalds,
and all skin diseases. 50c. box, ull

FAMOUS CLEARING HOUSE.
How   Millions   Are   Handled   In   Famous Old  Lombard Street.
In Lombard street, famous all the
world over as the little narrow street
of banks and bankers, the recent financial fluctuations have caused quite
a flutter, nnd nowhere have the rise
and fall in stocks been felt more keenly than at the London Bankers' Clearing House���that centre of the banking system where millions of money
are dealt with daily.
The romantic history of the clearing house puts in the shade that of
any other financial institution in London or the provinces. Its aim, as
most people .ire aware, is to enable
the different banks to reach a settlement every 24 hours. Every morning
checks drawn upon all the other clearing houses are delivered from the different banks, and before they are despatched their amounts are entered in
a book. Sitting at the desks of the
clearing house are clerks belonging
to all the banks interested. In the
morning each clerk finds on his desk
a pile of checks drawn upon his batik,
and the amounts are checked. Wjfen
Ibis laborious process is finishedthe
clerks of the different banks return
lo their headquarters.
The busiest time of thc day (during which there are three clearings)
comes just before four o'clock, v'on
the "runners" rush in nt thp Inst moment with bundles of checks to
bp examined". Then comes the heavy
task of arriving nt it balance. Although nearly a hundred million
pounds has been known to pass
through tbe elenring house in tbe
course of the day not a single farthing
d' it is in coin.
For the genesis of the clearing
house you must go back to the year
1775, when a Mr. Irving, a clerk to
Messrs. Fuller, suggested that n room
should be hired where clerks from
various banks conld meet for the purpose of exchange. The ground floor
of No. 7 Lombard street was chosen
'or the nurpose. but with an increase
of business the cleoring house was
removed in the year 1814 to No. 2
Lombard street. The joint stock banks
were not admitted until the year 1854,
but even now all the metropolitan
institutions are not represented at
the clearing house, and owing to the
consolidation of the banking system
of recent years the number of clearing banks represented is not more
than eighteen. The bankers' bank
is the Bank of England. Until a few
years ngo four private banks owned
the clearing house. Since then a company has been formed, an equal number of shares being heid by the banks
concerned.
The   tremendous   increase   in   the
clearing house transactions is  exemplified by the following figures:
Year.
1870   �� 3.914.000.000
1885     5,511,000.000
1890     7,801.000.000
1901    9,561,000,000
1906    12,711,334.000
This scene of city bustle and excitement is situate at the end of Post-
office court, which straggles out of
Lombard street. In the busy hours of
the afternoon you can get a glimpse
of the clerks behind the swinging
doors bending over their desks at
high pressure. The "clearers" and
the "runners" are hustling and sometimes wrangling together. But the
whole system werks as accurately as
a machine, and often a million of
money is interchanged in the space
oi a few minutes.
Music For Prisoners.
The inmates of Wandsworth Prison, numbering over 1,000, have just
had an experience which they are not
likely to forget. The Brixton Oratorio
Choir, consisting of 70 trained voices,
visited the prison and sang for them
selections from "St. Paul" and "Elijah." Miss Evelyn Wynne also gave
her services, as did a professional instrumental quartette. It was a wonderful sight to see prisoners listening,
straining forward to catch every note
and word. The governor said there
never had been such silence. The
men almost seemed glued to their
seats. It was last winter that the
suggestion was made by Rev. A. J.
Waldron, vicar of Brixton, that the
choir should visit metropolitan prisons, and consent was first obtained
for the choir to visit Brixton Prison.
On that occasion the chaplain of the
prison.said the prisoners had never
been so moved before. Prisoners who
had before rebelled against nil discipline and had maintained a stubborn demeanor were entirely softened.
In the infirmary were several prisoners who were unable to be present,
but who heard the music through the
open windows. One old man said it
seemed as if suddenly heaven had
come to the prison. The warders at
Doth prisons are eloquent in their
praise of the innovation, and sav it
hrs brought a new hope into the whole
prison world.
How  Swell  Women   Dress.
Justice Grantham, at the SuBsex
Assizes, ind"lged in Borne strong remarks regarding the way in which
"swell ladies of the land," as he termed them, defrauded poor tradespeople.
"It wns time," said the learned
judge, "that many ladies who dressed
so expensively were made to realize
that they could not defraud tradespeople with contempt, and that by
making false statements in order to
obtain what they required they could
b ��� sent to ���firisou. If this was more
fully realized it would put a stop to
.1 lot o.' fnlse credit. Great advan
tnges were taken by swell ladies of
poor tradespeople. They went to various shops and ordered grnnd and expensive costumes for wbich they never intended to pay; consequently
many poor trndespepole were absolutely   robbed."

GREATEST OF  PORTS.
New York Has Four Hundred and
Four Miles of Dock.
More than twice as many vessels
clear the port of London, to be sure,
one every fourteen minutes as against
one every half hour for New York, but
tbe average cargo value is only $47,-
242. whereas that of New York is $92,-
307. In point of tonnage New York exceeds London by 1.000,000. This is due
to a difference in the character of the
ports that must be borne In mind in
comparing tbem. London is ling-
land's one commercial center aud aside
from Liverpool its otil. great place of
export and Import.
On the other bund, New York Is uot
the commercial center of America.

New Orleans. Charleston. Mobile. Norfolk, Philadelphia and Boston, engage
ln a coastwise and foreign trade lu entire independence of New York. Less
than 28 per cent of New York's tonnage ls represented In coastwise trace.
Fully 50 per cent of London's commerce, amounting to $1,370,000,000 lUi-
nually, or $fl8.,0ftl),.000, represents tor-
eign trade, whereas of New York's $1,-
200.000.000 annual commerce $804,000,*
0011 represents foreign trade, or an actual excess over London of $179,000,-
000.
To accommodate this enormous trade
New York has 404 miles of Improved
water frontnge^-tbul is, 404 miles of
docks. This is half the distance between New York and Chicago. London has less than 200 miles of similar
water frontage. Liverpool has less
than 100 miles, while Hamburg. Antwerp. Rotterdam or Havre has each
less than Liverpool. Practically all
the available water frontage of these
foreign ports bus been absorbed by
their docks, while New York bas Improved only a little over one-half of
Its available shore. When nil the
available const is Improved, as It must
be rapidly. It will measure nearly as
many miles as lie between tbe Atlantic seaboard and the Mississippi river.

LAKE CHAD, IN   AFRICA.
Incidents   of   Its   Exploration   by   an
English Officer.
Some queer adventures and mauy
hardships were encountered by Lieu
tenant Boyd Alexander ln his explora-
rntlou of the broad but shallow and
reedy waters of Lake Chad, ln Africa.
Of oue iucident he writes: "By now
we fouud that our provisions hnd run
but so to procure food we frantically
waded up to our waists In mud after
duck, which before so strange nn invasion immediately took refuge lu
flight. We therefore had to pay our
attention to the Hocks of klttlwake
gulls which often circled about us, and
It was not long before we bad spitted
and roasted some before the fire In our
boat. The following evening, bewever,
our plight became serious, for cartridges were almost finished, and we
were obliged to make for rats, whicli
abound on the Islands, digging them
out of their holes nnd making humble
pie of tbem. and tbis Is how we lived
for another six days."
Great parts of Lake Chad average
four feet deep even where fully twenty miles wide. Sometimes the reeds
ure enormously thick aud high, through
which the travelers had to force tbelr
way. "The next cutting, six miles In
length, occupied two days. During
these operations we were pbllged to
spend the nights huddled up lu the
boats. Slee^was o.it of the question.
We were attacked by hordes of mosquitoes, and we prayed for the morning to come. Many o:' the men, maddened with pain, preferred to sit up to
tbelr necks in water all night. 1 observed three species of mosquito, one
us large as ll small fly. very dark and
with a transparent body, which grew
to enormous proportions when distended with blood. In spite of all then****
mosquitoes I never experienced a day'e
fever wbeu on the lake."
* Of another experience he writes: "On
the outward journey we came upon i.
large Budiimr. fishing fleet for the first
time. At lirst tbey mistook us fur
other Biidninns, whom fhey considered
us easy prey, for it is their habit t"
plunder one nnother when they get the
chance. Accordingly they closed up
ready for attack. But soou they realized their mlttake, and the tables weie
turned. Before we could get up '.o
them���aud tbe crews of the boats were
straining every nerve���mnny of the
boats burst out Into flames, and tlie
Budiimns, swimming like otters underneath the water disappeared Into tbe
reeds. The bo nits were piled up witb
dried fish, hnd hidden underneath
straw mat/ we found four slave boys
who were tbe victims of traffic carried
on between tbe Budumas and Tubus."
