The report of Angus Mclnnes, Mining
Recorder, as published by the Minister
of Mines, is just to hand, and will be
read with interest:
With reference to tbo mining conditions during the year, I may say that,
for the lirst nine months, with silver
averaging about 68 crnts an ounce, nnd
le.id up as high as ��20 a ton, everything
appeared very satisfactory, but the drop
in the price of silver for the last three
months to 53 cents, nnd nlso the drop in
lbe price of lead, has bad the tendency
to depress mining in this distiict again,
for, iinoer present condition?, it is n
foiegone conclusion that some of them
wiil b_ compelled lo close down till bettor prices obtain In two instances
minis bnd undertaken heavy development work to tap the leads at 750 and;
.S00 feet vertical depth, und a number of
properties wliich have been idle fulsome years have been taki n under
lea-o and bond and bave opened up
some fine ore-li ulies, and, if prices coine
lo a reasonably fair place, llieie is no,
doubt that the Slocan will be very prosperous,
Batchelob.���In lhe fir.-t part of the
year this property was worked by II.
Lowe and partners, who shipped considerable ore, but Inter (hey turned over
the mine, or made ariangeinenta wiih
the owner, Mr. Petty, to do eo, to an
American company nt a price, on a bond
stated tu be .160,000; but, however, the
propeity icvo ted back io Mr. Petty,
who, tine. July, line shipped some five
ears ol high grade ore from the mfne,
and it is still being Steadily worked.
The Canadian group ba-i been worked
all summer by the Brandon Bios., oi
Silverlon, who have al-o shipped some
good grade galena ore, probably about
between two and three cars.
EuiiBK-A-Rioi'MOXDi���Only ore-enr-of
oie lias been shipped from this well-
known mine tin's year, but lbe com.mny
has been steadily developing its o*c-
body for the whole season, and, as lho
new Irani was not completed, and by
which there would be a hi,* saving in
lending duwn the o e, no large ship
meals were made. I am informed by
lbe manager that he lias opened up a
splendid bidy of zinc ore as will, and
has about completed a tram 5,000 feet
long, nnd an ore pocket of 75 tins capacity. About 25 men have been employed about the mine since June.
ElkhOHN.���Under lease to George
Gormley ami partners, who have opened
up a fine ore-body. They have shipped
���18 tons of silver-lead ore and have
opened up a body of zinc ore from Ihree
to f mi* del in a cbule over 100 ft ct long.
They have worked four men steadily.
���Single Copies 5c
Hbwttt.���This company hns shipped
some 31 cars ol dry ore during the year,
of the net value of approximately
.43,781, working about 30 men. A new
trim, some 5,000 feet long, wiih n capacity of 10  tons  per hour,  connecting
St.".sdakd.���Th's properly, under the
management of Mr. G. Aylard, of New
Denver, is making a good mine. He is:
employing steadily about 20 men, and
development for the year consists of
1,000 feet of tunnelling, 500 feet of stop*
with the Wakefield mill has been built,   ing, and 200 feet raising,     He  has  ex-
Bin  capacity nt lower   end,  775 tons ; | p: n le 1   over    '50,000  Ibis    year   and
upper end, 500 toes. Two levels have
b en driven right through the bill.
Thi*. company lias also a long lease on
the Wakefield mine and mill and proposes to do some extensive mining in
the near future. There is a two years'
supply of ore for the mill in sight in
the Hewitt mine now.
McAllister.���Worked by Bonnet
and Clark. These men undertook to
drive a long tunnel to tap the vein at
depth, but they were not able to complete the work this season. In view of
this development they did not ship
truch ore, only some seven tons of high
grade dry ore being sent out.
Molly Hughes.-Tnis mine was
bonded by Mr. R. Black. He has been
working an average of four miners
steadily, and has shipped 48 tons of
high grade dry ore since August. Development, 200 feet of tunnelling; ore
in sight, three to four cars.
Majestic���Under the management
of C. A. Bigney. The development
work on this property for the season
has been: tunnelling, 125 feet; raise,
200 feet; stoped, 25-feet square; ore
shipped, 28 tons of galena, netting
_1,750. Two miners have been employed .
M.iabiB. -This is a new property, sit-1
uate neir Cody, and has been bought
outright ly a Mr. Duck, of Milwaukee
He is now employing 15 mm, and expects to have some 25 beforo long. He
has erected fine bunk-houses, cookhouse, etc., and has his first car of clean
galena ore ready for shipment, with
several more in sight.
Payne.���It is hardly a report without
some few words about this mino. Rnr-
ing this summer this well-known mine
went "under the hammer," for some
whore about $50,000, to Eastern parties,
and it is expected that before long
some new work will be commenced. I
believe that some ore has been shipped,
but have not yet been able to find out
what amount.
The Reco, a well-known old mine,
was opened up again this year by Mr.
Harris, about July, and since that time
it has shipped to date about 200 tons of
rich galena ore, and has employed 20
men, a month,
Slocan- Sovereign.���At present this
mine is being worked by G. Ransom,
late of the Payne. A very large body
nf milling ore his be n opened up
There have been four men employed
steadily, and 125 tons of galena ore have
been shipped. Work consists of SOO
feet of tunnelling, and 200 feet of raise
shipped ore to the value of over $00,000.
He id driving a long tunnel to get under the ore, and should be catch it
there, he will undoubtedly have one of
tlie-best mi ies in tlie distiict.
Smu'RiHE.���Is being worked by A.
Smith of Kaslo. Ab nit 800 fiet of tunnel has been run ou this properly, driving the jastChance No. .'1 tunnel through
the Noble 5 with a view to cutting 760
feetveriical depth under the old Surprise workings. Six men wero continually employed duing this work. No
ore was shipped.

OTTAWA, June 1���Hon. XV. S.
Fielding, minister of finance, has
given notice of a resolution extending
the period under which the bounties
on lead can be paid fur five year from
June 110.
Under lbe present net which came
into force on June 80, 1003, the bounties are regulated by the standard
price of pig lead in London, When
the price reach*d ��\"i 10*. per ton of
2,210 lbs., the bounties commenced to
shrink and were wiped ont when lead
renohed .C18. Owing to lhe conliniied
llig.l priic. of lend out, of $-.,600,000
available for bOUntlei during-the live
years less than .700.000has been paid.
The new act wi'l provide that the
bounties will not commence to decrease until the price of lead has
reached ��H 10s. and that payments
shall be limited to half a million n
year, providing that the sum paid
dining the live years, from June 80,
1008, lo June 80, 1913, does not exceed -.2,500,000.
Tho graft has been consummated
The Dominion government has seen fi.
to give lo the Consolidated Mining and
Smelting Co. of Canada, or tbe Trail
Smelter, or lhe C.P.R., or any other
name tbat "the lend pipe cinch" is designated by, two and a half million
dollars, Baid money lo be unevenly distributed to them over a pciiod of five
years. In other words, the extension of
the lead bounty has been granted, and
Messrs. Uelallack and Pratt, who have
been working for the Trail Smelter in
the lobby of lbe Ottawa house for the
pnsl five months, will soon leturn lo
the their conjugal duties.
Ostensibly the load bounty wns
promulgated to foster (be lead mining
industry of the Dominion, but did it?
Nary a bit! We repeat our ott reiterated assertion that there is not a man
in Ilie Slocan to-day who can witli truth
say that the share he partook of in the
last distribution of .700,000 in any way
assisted him; for tlie very good reason
that the smelter people now playing a
lone band can sock it to bim in freight
rates, treatment of his ores, and n.t re*
The Consolidated Company hired the
services of two men, Mt ssrs. .1. I.. Ret-
allaek and L Pratt., both Slocnn mining
men, to go to Ottawa and "lobby" for
tliem. The former was chosen because
he was a liuent speaker, of goo I appearance, a politicau (Liberal,', and thoroughly conversant wiih the lead ijues-
liou ; tlie latter, because be is a French
Canadian, a mining mnn, and a politician (Liberal*. For five months those
gentlemen have played the game at
Ottawa, and at last their employers'
schemes bare materialized,
That two and a half million dollars

not the program of the Consolidated.
They d;d nut pay lbe way of their
hirelings fo- that. They bavel.be cinch
on the indiist y, and it is another illustration of m inopo'y crushing right and
making right pay the costs. Under existing conditions the lead bounty is ll
farce, nn oulrige; and not until the
lead producers of the Slocan get together and show a bold front to the
giant octopus will the condition, bo
bettered, Every shipper of lead knows
ihat the Consolidated can refuse to lake
any custom ore and run its smelter constantly on its own ore and ihu*consume
the whole of the bounty. There is
nothing to prevent ihein doing it. But
the shipper is sealed to open bis mouth.,
lest (ho Consolidate! should refuse _j
puichase liis ore,'and consequently "(bB
lead cinch" flourishes, and the Slocan
load Industry is at Iheir mercy, We
again emphasize the point that a government which has $2,500,000 to dole
out in a lead bounty, has .2,500,000 lo
build a smelter for thc good of Canada.

fr was the morning after the
guardsman had returned to his
duties. Eight o'clock had struck
ou the great clock of Versailles,
and it was almost time for the monarch to rise. Servants, with clothes
thrown over their arms, bustled down
the passage which led to the antechamber. The young ollicer, who had
been looking wistfully out of the window at some courtiers who were laughing aud chatting on the terraces, turned sharply upon his heel aud strode
over to the white and gold door of the
royal bedroom.
He had hardly taken his stand there
before the handle was very gently
turned from within, the door revolved
noiselessly upon Us hinges and a man
slid silently through tlie uperture, closing it again behind him.
"'Hush!" said he, with bis finger to
his thin, precise lips, while his whole
clean shaven face and high arched
brows were an entreaty aud a warning.
"The king still sleeps."
The words were whispered from one
to another among the group who had
assembled outside the door. The speaker, who was M. Bontems, bead valet-de-
chambre, gave a sign to the officer of
the guard and led him Into tbe window
alcove from wliich he had lately come.
"Good morning, Captain de Catinat
Who commands at tbe main guard?"
"Major de Brissac."
"And you will be here?"
"For four hours I attend the king."
"Very good. He gave me some Instruction for the officer of the guard.
He bade me to say that M. de Vlvonne
was not to be admitted to the grand
lever.   You are to tell him so."
"I shall do so."
"Then, should a note come from her
���you understand me, the new one"���
"Mme. de Maintenon?"
"Precisely. But it is more discreet
not to mention names. Should she send
a note, you will take it and deliver It
quietly when the king gives you an
���'It shall be done."
"But if the other should come, as Is
possible enough���the other, you understand me, the former"���
"Mme. de Moutespan."
"Ah, that soldierly tongue of yours,
captain! Should sbe come, I say, you
will gently bar her way, with courteous
words, you understand, but on no account Is she to be permitted to enter
the royal room."
"Very good, Bontems."
"And now we have but three minutes." He strode through the rapidly
increasing group of people in the corridor with an air of proud humility, as
befitted a man who, if be was a valet,
was at least the king of valets by being the valet of the king. Close by the
door stood a line of footmen resplendent la their powdered wigs, red plush
coats and silver shoulder knots. He
turned the handle once more and slipped into the darkened room.
It was a large, square apartment,
with two high windows upon the further side, curtained across with priceless velvet hangings. In one corner a
narrow couch with a rug thrown across
it showed where the faithful Bontems
had spent tbe night.
In the very center of the chamber
there stood a large four post bed, with
curtains of Gobelin tapestry looped
back from the pillow. A square of polished rails surrounded it, leaving a
space some five feet in width all round
between the Inclosure and the bedside.
As Bontems passed noiselessly across
tbe room, bis feet sinking Into tbe
mosslike carpet, there was the heavy,
close smell of sleep ln the air, and he
could hear the long, thin breathing of
the sleeper. He passed through tbe
opening In the rails and stood, watch
in hand, watting for the exact instant
when the Iron routine of the court demanded that the monarch should be
roused. Beneath him, from under the
costly green coverlet of oriental silk,
half buried in the fluffy valenciennes
lace which edged the pillow, there protruded a round black bristle of close
cropped hair, with the profile of a curving nose and petulant lip outlined
against the white background. The
valet snapped his watch and bent over
the sleeper.
"I have the honor to Inform your
majesty tbat It Is half past 8," said he.
"Ah!" The king slowly opened his
large dark brown eyes, made the sign
of the cross and kissed a little dark
reliquary wliich he drew from under
his nightdress.   Then be sat up in bed.
"Did you give my orders to the officer of the guard, Bontems?" he asked.
"Yes, sire."
"Who is on duty?"
"Major de Brissac at the main guard
and Captain de Catlnat In the corridor."
"De Catinat! Ah, the young man who
stopped my horse at Eontalneblenu. I
remember hiin. You may give the Blg-
nal, Bontems."
The chief valet walked swiftly across
to the door and threw It open. In
rushed the officer of the ovens and the
four red coated, white wigged footmen, ready handed, silent footed, each
Intent upon his own duties, The one
seized upon Bontems' rug and couch
nnd lu au instant bad whipped tbem
off Into an antechamber, another had
carried away the silver taper stand,
while a third drew buck the great curtains of stamped velvet and let a flood
of light into tbe apartment.
Tbey were hardly gone before a more
august group entered the bedchamber.
Two walked together in front, tbe one
11 youth little over twenty years of age,
middle sized, Inclining to stoutness,
with a slow, pompous bearing, a well
turned log aud a face which was comely enough In a masklike fashion, but
which was devoid of any shadow of
expression except perhaps of an occasional lurking gleam of mischievous
humor. His companion was a man of
forty, swarthy, dignified and solemn.
As the pair faced the kiug there was
sufficient   resemblance   V.tween    tbe
three faces to show tbat they were of
one blood and to enable a stranger to
guess that the older was monsieur, tbe
younger brother of the king, while the
other was Louis the Dauphin, his only
legitimate child.
Behind tbe king's son and the king's
brother there entered a little group of
notables and of officials whom duty had
called to this dally ceremony. There
were the grand master of the robes, tbe
flrst lord of the bedchamber, the Due
du Maine, a pale youth clad in black
velvet, limping heavily witb his left
leg, and his little brother, the young
Comte de Toulouse, both of them tbe
Illegitimate sous of Mine, de Moutespan and the king. Such were the partakers in tbe family entry, the highest
honor which tbe court of France ceuld
nspire to.
Bontems had poured on the king's
bands a few drops of spirits of wine,
catching them again lu n silver dish;
and tbe flrst lord of the bedchamber
bad presented tbe bowl of holy water,
witb which be made tbe sigu of the
cross, muttering to himself the short
office of the Holy Ghost. Then, wilh
a nod to his brother and a short word
of greeting to tbe Dauphin aud to tbe
Due du Maine, be swung bis legs over
the side of the bed and sat, in bis long
silken nightdress, his little white feet
dangling from beneath it, a perilous
position for nny man to nsstime were
It uot that he had so heartfelt a sense
of his own dignity tbat bo could not
realize that under any circumstances
It might be compromised in the eyes of
others. So be sat, the master of France
and yet the slave to every puff of wind,
for a wandering draft had set him sbiv-
erlug and shaking. M. de St. Quentiu,
the noble barber, flung a purple dressing gown over the royal shoulders and
placed a long, many curled court wig
upon his head, while Bontems drew on
bis red stockings and laid before him
his slippers of embroidered velvet. The
monarch thrust his feet Into them, tied
his dressing gown and passed out to
lbe fireplace, where be settled himself
down lu his easy chair, holding out his
thin, delicate bauds toward the blazing
logs, while tbe others stood round ln
a semicircle, waiting for the grand
lever which was to follow.
M. de St. Quentiu, is this not our
shaving morning?" said tbe king.
"Yes, sire; all Is ready."
"Then why uot proceed? It ls three
minutes after the accustomed time. To
work, sir; aud you, Bontems, give
word for tbe grand lever."
It was obvious that the king was not
in a very good humor that morning.
He darted little quick questioning
glances at his brother and at his sons,
but whatever complaint or sarcasm
may have trembled upon bis lips was
effectually stifled by De St. Quentin's
ministrations. With tbe nonchalance
born of long custom, the official covered the royal chin wilh soap, drew
the razor swiftly round it aud sponged
over the surface with spirits of wiue.
V nobleman then helped to draw ou the
Mug's black velvet baut-de-cbausses, a
isocoud assisted in arranging tbem,
while a third drew the nightgown over
the shoulders aud handed tbe royal
shirt, which had beeu warming beforo
the Are. His diamond buckled shoes,
his gaiters and his scarlet inner vest
were successively fastened by noble
courtiers, each keenly jealous of his
own privilege, and over the vest was
placed the blue ribbon witb the cross
of tlie Holy Ghost in diamonds, and
Unit of St. Louis tied with red. The
black undercoat was drawn ou, tbe
cravat of rich luce adjusted, tbe loose
overcoat secured, two handkerchiefs of
costly point carried forward upon au
enameled saucer and thrust by separate officials Into each side pocket, tbe
silver aud ebony cane laid to baud, and
the monarch was ready for tbe labors
of the duy.
During the half hour or so which had
been occupied in this manner there
had been a constant opening and closing of tbe chamber door, aud a muttering of names from the captain of the
guard to the attendant in charge, and
from the attendant in charge to tbe
flrst gentleman of the chamber, ending
always in tbe admission of some uew
visitor. Here, close by tbe king, was
thc harsh but energetic Louvois, all
powerful now since the death of his
rival Colbert, discussing a question of
military organization witb two officers,
the one a tall and stately soldier, tbe
other a strange little figure, undersized
and misshapen, but bearing the insignia of a marshal of France, aud owning a name which was of evil omen
over tbe Dutch frontier, for Luxembourg was looked upon already as the
successor of Conde, even as his companion Vnuban was of Turenne. Beside them a small white haired clerical
with a kindly face, Fere la Chaise,
confessor to the king, was whispering
his views upon Jansenism to the portly
Bossuet, the eloquent bishop of Meaux.
Close to tbo door Uaclne, witb bis handsome face wreathed in smiles, wax
chatting with the poet Boileau and the
architect Mansard, tbe three laughing
and jesting with the freedom whicli
was natural to the favorite servants of
the king.
"He becomes harder and harder to
amuse," said Racine, "I um to bo at
Mme. de Maintenon's room at 3 to

"Very true, but a young man consults his eye and an older man his ear.

"But I think you are wrong, Racine."

"Then it may be a little serious for

"The Marquise de Montespan has a

"My dear Boileau, I say again that
her sun Is setting. Have you uot
heard the news? Her brother, M. de
Vlvouue, bas been refused the entree."
"From whom bad you it?"
"From De Catinat, the captain of the
guard. He had bis orders to bar the
way to him."
"Ha, then the king does indeed mean
mischief. That is why his brow is so
cloudy this morning then. By my
faith, if tbe marquise has the spirit
witb which folk credit her, be may find
that it was easier to win ber than to
Blight her."
"Aye, the Mortemarts are no easy
race to handle."
"Well, heaven send hlm a safe way
out of it! But who is this gentleman?
His face ls somewhat grimmer than
those to which the court is accustomed.
Ha, tbe king catches sight of bim, and
Louvois beckons to bim to advance."
The stranger who bad attracted Racine's attention was a tall, thin man,
with n high aquiline nose, stern, fierce
gray eyes, peeping out from under tufted brows, and a countenance so lined
and marked by age, care and stress .of
weather tbat It stood out amid the
prim courtier faces which surrounded
It as an old hawk might in a cage of
birds of gay plumage.
Louis possessed In a high degree tbe
royal faculty of recognition. "It Is
years since I have seen him, but I remember his face well," said he, turn-
lug to his minister. "It Is the Comtc
de Frontennc, is it not?"
"Yes, sire," answered Louvois. "It Is
Indeed Louis de Buade, comte de Frontennc and formerly governor of Canada."
"We are glad to see you once more at
our lever," said tbe monarch as tbe
old nobleman stooped his head aud
kissed the white hand which was extended to bim. "I hope that the cold
of Canada has not chilled tbe warmth
of your loyalty."
"Only death Itself, sire, would be
cold enough for that."
"Then I trust that it may remain to
us for many long years. We would
thank you for the care and pains which
you havo spent upon our province, nnd
if we have recalled you it ls chiefly
tbat we would faiu bear from your
own lips bow nil things go there. And,

"They prosper, sire. There are Iroquois at the Sault aud the mountain,

"And you have suffered this?" cried
Louis hotly. "Yon allow these Infamous assassins to live?"

"And I have sent some."
"One regiment. More is needed, sire."
"Tbere are the Canadians themselves.

How to Get   New  Health and

The winter months are trying to
the health of even the most robust.
Confinement indoor in overheated

The Dundee Advertiser tells the following story of tho discovery of coffee
as a beverage: "Near the middle of
the fifteenth century a poor Arab was
traveling through Abyssinia, and,
finding himself weary and weak from
fatigue, he stopped near a grove;
then, being in want of fuel to cook his
rice, be cut down a tree, which happened to be covered with dead berries. His meal bmng cooked and eaten, tbe traveler discovered that tbe
half-burned ber ies were very fragrant. Ht collected a number of them,
nnd, or crushing them with a stone,
he found that tlieir aroma increased
to a great extent. While wondering at
this lie accidentally let fall the substance into the can which contained
his scanty supply of water���lo! what
a miracle. The nearly putrid water
was almost instantly purified. He
raised it to his lips; it was fresh,
agreeable, nnd in a moment the traveler had so far recovered his strength
and energy as to be able to resume his
journey. The lucky Arab gathered a*
many berries as he could, and, having
arrived at Aden, in Arabia, he informed tbe mufti of his discovery.
That worthy divine was an inveterate opium smoker, nnd had suffered
for years from the influence of that
poisonous drug. He tried an infusion
of the roasted berries and was so delighted at tlie recovery of his own
vigor that in gratitude to the tree he
culled it caliuah, which in Arabia sig

Recollections of Fnthusiastic Scene of
Persimmon's  Victory.
Persimmon is dead. The mighty
horse over whose deeds the public
waxed so enthusiastic, has run his
last race and sired his last foal. Meeting with an accident, he fractured
his pelvis in two places. It was
tound impossible to effect a cure, and
Persimmon  died  recently.
Persimmon was foaled on April 15,
1893, and was first seen in public ct
Ascot two years later, when he won
the Coventry Stakes. Next he won
tbe Richmond Stakes at Goodwood,
but in bis next race, the Middle
Park Plate, he only finished third,
though it must be said he had been
coughing just previously.
Until the Derby, the borse was not
seen out again. " He started second
favorite, St. Frusquin holding a premier position in tbe betting lists.
After a great race and a fine exhibition of jockeyship on the part of
John Watts, the King's horse won by
a neck nnd there was a scene of enthusiasm sooh as had never been seen
before, and was not equalled even
when his Majesty won his second
Derby   with   Diamond   Jubilee.
In the' same year there was nnother
great race between Persimmon and
St. Frusquin for the Princess of
Wales's Stakes nt Newmnrket. The
Derby winner hid to concede .lib.,
and was beaten halt a length. Tbis
led to much speculation as to which
of the two would win the St. Leger,
but soon afterwards St. Frusquin
broke down nnd left tbe turf, so that
Persimmon hnd not much difficulty
in tnkine* the Doncaster race. Three
weeks afterwards he won the Jockey
Club Stakes.
In the following year lie took the
Ascot, Gold dm, and easily secured
the Eclipse S'nkes at Sandown Park,
then retiring from the turf, having
won seven of bis nine races and
��34."OR in stake money.
At the stud. Persimmon was an immediate soeeess. Amon. bis first
crop of yearlings was Sceptre, who,
on the death nf tbe Duke of Westminster, was sold nt auction to Mr.
R. 8. S'evier for the world's record
price of 10,000 guineas. He also sired
Zinfandel, Keystone II., and many
other fine horses.
Persimmon heeded tbe li��t of winning sires in 1P02 and 1T06. In ten
seasons nt the stud be earned approximately ��100.000 in service fees, and
his progeny have won ��124,815 In
stakes so far.

Must    Have    Their    Clubs ��� Found
Wherever  They   Penetrate.
Of all the races of men in tbe world
Britons are tbe most gregarious.
In Great Britain and Ireland there
are 2,085, while there are 1,005 in
foreign countries, and British Colonies.
Golf, apparently, is the chief excuse
for the formation of clubs. Of the
above total, no fewer than 1,144 are
golf clubs.
London's list of clubs shows no
signs of decreasing. At present they
number 282, of which thirty at least
are exclusively Indies' institutions.
Indeed, one of the most astonishing
features of olub life is the increase
throughout the count' y in recent
years of clubs devoted exclusively
to the fair sex. There are at present 322 of these.
Wherever two or more Britishers
meet together in any part of tbe world
their first remark would appear to be:
"Let us form a club."
Accordingly, even in far Fiji, for
instance, there is more than one
club. The Ovnlau Club, in Levuka,
has fifty members, while the Fiji
Club, an older institution in Suva,
has sixty-five members.
Tbe social delights of St. James's
are also simulatid in Chefoo nnd Foo-
ohow, in China; Kuebing, in Borneo:
Taiping, Straits Settlements; Beira,
In Mozambique; and Nagasaki, in
They are all British in origin as
well as organization. India Is a land
of many clubs, where white men meet
and try to for.et the exigench s of
the climate. The Madras with 1,140.
the Quetta with 3.000, and the Gymkhana (Poonn) with 1,000 members
being amongst tbe biggest institutions.
At Benin, somewhere In the Niger
Coast Protectorate, there is an enthusiastic band of polfers���twenty al!
told���who cheerfully pay 5s. per annum for the delights of clubland, and
a British captain is tbe secretary.
Bangkok strikes tbe note of cosmopolitanism. Its United Club ha*=
a membership of 270, but they are of
various nationalities. Of course, il
has its golf club, too, which boasts a
membership of eighty.
Peace on  Earth.
Have you ever thought seriously of
the meaning of that blessing given to
the peacemakers? People are always
expecting to get peace in heaven. But
you know whatever peace they get
there will be ready made. Whatever
making of peace tliey can be blessed
for must be on the earth here; not
tbe taking of arms against, but tbe
building of nests amid its "sea of
trorbles" (like the halcyons).
Difficult enough, you think? Perhaps so, but I do not see that any
of us try. We complain of the want
of many things���we want votes, we
want liberty, we want amusement,
we wart money. Which of us feels
or knows that he wants peace?���John
Curious Coincidences.

The   Slavery   of   Disease.
It is wonderful bow many women in
Canada and the United States have
been practically made new again by
the use of Peruna.
Not the victims of any organic disease, but just a half-dead and half-
alive condition.
Miserable dragging pnins tbat keep
a woman always irom doing her best
work, from being ber best self. Cross
and petulant, perhaps. Maybe even
a slattern in her household, just because her health is continually below
par. She never feels quite right.
She gets the reputation of being sullen, or morbid, or ill-tempered.
Her trouble is not a moral one at all,
it is simply a physical one.      Make
such a woman well and she immediate-
' ly  becomes  transformed  into  a  new
j being  mentally.
This is exactly what Peruna has
done in a multitude of cases.

Cases 0' Living Men Entombed In
Sunken Ships.
A striking example of one among the
many strange accidents that befall
sailors wua reported the other day
from Newcastle, N. S. W.
lhe barken tine Kate Tutham turned
turtle ln a gale, aud one of her crew
was shut up in her hold. The survivors, who bad climbed on her keel

His Imprisonment lasted for two

l/.ed as unparalleled. This, however,
Is by no means correct. There are
several cases on record of men hav-

During this period the derelict, drift-

Going Up Is Delightful, She Says, But
Not at the Top.
It appears that there is no immediate liKeiinood ol women steepiejacks

This, at nny rate, is the opinion of
Mrs. Larkins, wife of the best-known
London steeplejack, wbo herself made
an ascent of a 170-foot chimney.

"Take my own case. Though ior the
first time in ;:iy life, I attempted a
chimney stack, T have always been
(ond of heights���in the way of rocks,

"I always thought I would like to

Great Britain Confronted With a Timber  Famine���Need   Increasing.
Great Britain is face to face with
a shortage in her supply of timber;
such, at least, is the opinion of a
writer in a late issue of Tho London
During the twenty years from 1886
to 1905 the quantities of timber imported showed a considerable increase
���in one ease, that of wood-pulp, of
practically lour hundred per cent.
During the same period, the declared
value of these wood and timber imports almost doubled, rising from
13,605.297 pounds sterling to 26,033,-
350 pounds sterling���an increase of
12,338,350 pounds, that is, ninety per
cent. Even in those cases where the
quantity of wood imported has decreased, the value shows an increase.
But, in spite of paying much more
for her wood, Britain is having some
sources of supply closed to her altogether. Not only has Germany now
no wood to spare, but she has herself
become a large importer to the tune
of about 15,000,000 pounds sterling
per year (the price of 4,500,000 tons of
wood), and that for ten years back
and longer. The United States is also likely to be soon cut off as a source
of Bupply.
Forestry has on at least two occasions, namely in 1885 and 1902, been
under consideration by committees of
the House of Commons, and some progress has been made. The Forest of
Dean and the adjacent H:gh Meadow
Woods have be��n placed under regular
forest management. In Scotland, last
year, the Government purchased the
12.000 acre estate of Inverliver, Argyllshire; and, in Ireland, Avondale,
in Wicklow county, the estate of the
late Mr. Charles Parnell, with the
woodland of Ballyfad near by, has
been acquired as a demonstration area
and forestry school.
Several municipalities are now engaged in planting to forest the catchment areas of their water supplies,
as many sueh areas are now being
planted on this continent. Liverpool,
out of hpr 22.000 acres of sueh land,
hns planted 640 acres, and seven
other towns have planted an aggregate
of 1,560 acres to trees. These figures
while smnll in themselves, show the
tendency of the times.
Some ndvnnce has also been made
in forestry instruction, which ha
been established at the universities
of Oxford and Cambridge, at the
Royal Agricultural College at Cirencester nnd the Agricultural College at
Wye, Kent.

Man Who Steered lll-Fated Troopship
When Wrecked.
Memories of the tragic wreck of th*
troopship B'rkenhead, witb its deeds*
of splendid heroism prob.ibly unsurpassed in military or naval annals,
are recalled by the death at Bristol
(Eng.) of one of the survivors, at the
age of 85.
He was Thomas Coffin, who, on
the occasion of the disaster to the
troopship was tlie "man at the wheel,"
and with seven others succeeded in
pulling safely to shore in a gig.
Joining the Birkenhead about 1850,
when he was 23 years of age, Coffin
made three voyages in tlie vessel witb
A fourth voyage to the Cupe was
the fateful one in which the Birkenhead was wrecked, and the troops
went down to a man, drawn up, as ii
on parade, on her decks.
Coffin has told his own story in
quiet, plain phrases that perhaps give
a clearer idea of the grim tragedy
than a number of lurid  phrases.
"I was at the wheel, and well remember the sentry calling out to the
officer of the watch, 'Fou- bells, sir.'
Tlie officer replied, 'Strike them, sentry,' whicli be did not do, for at that
very moment she struck the rock and
the sentry went rolling to the deck.
At the time most of the soldiers were
below asleep, but were awoke by the
crash (which appeared to nie to be
enough to wake tlie dead almost) and
euine on deck; but on being called to
order, fell in and remained so, thus
enabling the seamen to gut out what
boats  were  left.
"My instructions from the captain
were to man my boat and pull off
and await orders, which never came.
I heard after that he was struck by
a falling spar and killed. My boat's
crew and myself picked up thirty-two
in all, and we pulled till daylight,
when we came across the second cutter and gig, and we sighted a sail in
the offing. The ship's doctor, who
was one of the saved, culled for seamen to man the gig and pull toward
her. Eight of us volunteered, and
we pulled out, but could not attract
ber attention, so we decided not to
venture any  further.
"Fish Bay was our landing place,
and fortunately for us the postmaster's daughters of Caledon had just
finished bathing and were about to
return home. They were very kind
and provided us with some coffee and
bread, which wns very acceptable.
After we bad tramped to Caledon we
were sent to Simon's Town, and then
to Algoa Bay, our naval station.* We
were brought back to England on
the Amazon."
Thomas Coffin was indeed a son of
the sea, for be was actually born on
a battleship, H.M.S. Pitt, of which
his father was shipkeeper. In the
natural course of events he entered
the navy, saw active service on the
coast of Syria, was with the Naval
Brigade In the Crimea, and fought
in the China war of 1860. In 1871,
aa a quartermaster he left the service of his country.
Magistrate Rasmussen, of 202 Marquette St., Montreal, writes: "For

doctors in turn were consulted, but I
was unable to get any permanent relie'.    Some time back I noticed a report from a Justice of the Peace (Ma

been cured of a chronic skin disease
by Zam-Buk, and I determined to
give this balm a trial. After a thoroughly fair test, I can say I am delighted with it. I have the best cf
reasons for this conclusion; because
while everything else I tried���salves,
embrocations, washes, soaps and doctors' preparations���failed absolutely to
relieve my pain and rid me of my
trouble, three boxes of Zam-Buk
worked a complete cure. In my opinion tbis balm should be even more

Some Deep Sea Creatures Able to Shed
a Phosphorescent Light.
The inhabitants of the ocean vary
in many respects, according to the
depth at which they live, but most
of all in their powers of vision. Fish
that live at very great depths have
either no eyes at all or enormously
big ones. There are two methods of
getting about in the gloomiest abysses
���by delicate organs of touch and
sight���that collects the few rays of
light due to phosphorescence or other
accidental sources.
The fish which live near the top of
the ocean have smaller eyes than
those say eighty fathoms down. One
hundred and twenty fathoms deeper,
where daylight disappears, the eyes
are bigger still. Beyond the depth of
200 fathoms small eyes prevail, with
long feelers to supplement them.
At this depth, in fact, sight is practically useless. In the greatest
abysses the fish are usually blind, feeling their way about solely by means
of their sensitive bodies. Some, indeed, show signs externally of having
once possessed eyes, but that is all.
In others���the oldest and most eon-
firmed abysmal species���the eye has
disappeared altogether externally,
though traces of if are still to be recognized, embedded deeply in the
tissues of the head.
Many deep sea fish have a curious
system of hollows in the skull or
about the body which hold a kind of
phosphorescent slime. Others have
round or oval shining opalescent spots
plac��d on the head or along the body
or tail,
All of them are nbundantly supplied
with nerves, nnd tliey are apparently
organs for the production of phosphorescent light. If so, such a fish
must swim about surrounded by a
fnint glow, somewhat like that thrown
by luminous paint.
One scientist even suggests that
these fish may have the power of directing their rnys in any direction,
like a searchlight.

The Spread of English.
If language Is a true measure of conquest, as lias been contended, then
Anglo-Saxon speech Is rapidly conquering the continent, according to the investigation of n contributor to Harper's
Weekly. An Anglicism introduced Into
Italy a few years ago created little
.holt of a literary tumult In Rome. The
first subway in the Eternal City, a
Jhoit passage under the Qulrinnl hill,
was opened to tbe public, who promptly christened It "il tunnel." The patrl-
)tlc indignation was awakened. ������Tramway" bad been accepted, but nugry
professors and students besieged the
Roman papers, demanding to know
what had become of "traforo" or "gal-
lerla," good Italian words, and where
Ibis English madness was to end. Nevertheless "il tunnel" thus fur holds Its

Prof.   Saunders   and   Other  Scientists
Say It Is no More Exhausting
Than   Wheat.
The  question  is  often  asked,    "Is
flax  a  .specially    exhausting    crop?"
Leading  agricultural  authorities    say
that  chemical  analyses which    have
repeatedly  been made of this    crop,
showing tiie principal elements of fertility taken from the soil during the
period of its growth indicate that it
is no more exhausting than wheat or
oats.    Prof.  Saunders  of the Dominion Experimental Farm, some   years
ago made a eiireiul    study    of    this
question.   In a pamplet wliich he published on the subject, referring to the
results of chemical analyses, he said:
"The  greater part of    the straw    of
wheat,    outs and flax grown in    the
North-West is usually burnt, when the
mineral   ingredients   taken  from   the
land  are  returned  to it in the form
of ashes.   In the East, where the straw
is utilized chiefly for  bedding animals,    the mineral    constituents taken
up are returned to tbe soil with the
manure, hence the seed only need be
considered.   The grain in tlie case of
the wheat crop, lakes up a little more
nitrogen     unii    somewhat    less      of
phosphoric acid  and  potash  than  is
taken by the flax seed; while the oat
crop takes for tlie grain a larger proportion  of -nitrogen,  nearly one-third
less of phosphoric acid and about one-
eighth less of potash.    The difference
however, in exhaustive effect of theso
several   crops   on   a   rich  soil  would
scarcely  be perceptible,    and    would
not justify the opinion that flax is a
very exhaustible  crop.    In some experiments tried at tlie  Experimental
Farm  at  Brandon,  Man.,  in  sowing
wheat, oats and barley after flax, the
results   obtained   point   to  the   same
However, it is not wise to grow flax
on the same soil year after year. A
farmer having 160 acres of land can
bave portions of it in flax, wheat,
outs and other crops every year and
so rotate the crops that flax will not
be grown on the same soil two years
in succesion. It is better to allow
from three to five years to elapse between the* sowing of two crops of flaxseed on the same soil. Flax is a particularly suitable crop when land is
lirst broken and also on common sod
land broken up, but Prof. Thos. Shaw
of the University of Minnesota Agricultural department, says: "No crop
north of tlie corn belt proper can follow wheat so well as flax."

On* Ball Served a Busy Postal Employee Seven Years.
Though It handles some thousand
million dollars a year, the United
States government ls not uuapprecla-
tlve of the value of small things, such,
for example, us a piece of secondhand
twlue. Perhaps the ordinary ragpicker wouldn't regard It as a good business principle to stoop for a discarded
twelve Inch string when be is hurrying through the city at dawn in keen
competition with all classes of ragpickers for whut there Is of commercial value ln the ash barrels and scrap
heaps. But that may be due wholly
to his Inability to foresee some of the
future possibilities ln the practice of
noticing such trivial things. Similarly
It may be tbat a certain government
employee who attached himself to the
New England division of the United
States railway mall service six or
seven years ago did not pin much faith
ln little dingy string pieces, for he wns
some grades above tbe trained ragpicker In the social scale. Yet he
stooped to pick up such string pieces as
_ume under his observation In the ordinary routine of his business, and It
resulted In the bestowal upon him of a
distinction which bus not come to bis
companions of less economical tenden
des. How much It counts toward his
promotion In the service Is problematical, but it has carried his name and
fame with favorable comments to the
attention of the United States postoffice authorities, says the Boston Transcript
When this man reaches the next step
