How Silverton Celebrated the Glorious First.   Wakefield
Team Secured Big Prize.   Sandon Retains Football
Championship.   Big Crowds Witness Sport.
Dominion Day '07 will long be remembered by all who participated in
Silverton's celebration.' Time was
when a similar demonstration would
have drawn together several thousands
of Slocan's best, but e'en though the
halcyon days of long ago carried away
the crowds of pionears and tha accompanying train of human flotsam and
jetsam which ever drifts with tbe flood,
there yet remains the substantial
element which comprise the backbone
of a country just emerging proudly from
a baptism of depression. And uf such
composed tbe crowds which converged
toward bonnie Silverton on Monday
Success, writ large, is tbe verdict of
all who shared in the glorious day. All
reap in a ill o vied with each other in au
endeavor to loyally entertain tho
visitors, the latter also showing their
appreciation in a frank manner. Then
the weather, too, wss in a propitious
mood. For the previous ten days the
heavens had poured down a sheet of
water which appeared to have become a
a permanency, but though the weather
prophets held no hopes of a change and
the wisearres prognosticated wet, Old
Sol pushed his _no,ie through tbe
ominous black clouds, and ere an hour
bad passed he had assumed tho mastery.
Secretary Wilson was tbe first in
tlie arena, so from the first blush of the
smiling morn there was, iu the slang of
the day, " sometbin' -Join'."' A tremendous amount of Hamilton powder
was utilized for the peep o' day feu de
joi, and the sleepy ones were forcibly
informed that the day's fun had begun
and tbat Silverton was " there with the
goods at the first crack out of tbe box."
������ Many visitors bad arrived early tlie
previoiisday, the ciowd being augmented
the same night by the boys from tbo big
mines. All ths mines closed for the
occasion, so that by tlie time the whistle
of the boat was heard the streets *���* ere
thronged with a many crowd.
When the steamer Slocan rounded
the bend a roar of welcome went up
from the shore. George Long touched
the fuse and several cases of blasting
powder belched forth a salute. On Ihe
btat was a large crowd fiom Sandon,
Three Forks, New Denver and Rosebery,
and as soon aa those wore safely landed
the program was begun. It was also a
great crowd which arrived from Slocin
and Enterprise, and these wcia also
accorded a rousing welcome.
The first event was the single-handed
drilling contest, for which there were
three entries, A. McGillivray, Slocan
City, Malcolm Mackenzie and Frank
Johnson, both of Silveiton. These
three young miners were heavily backed
by their partisans, and tho excitement
throughout the contest was tense.
McGillivray appeared the general
favorite, and cheered on by his supporters bo struck a 75 gait which looked
like the money winner. " I'll lay 20 to
10 on tho Swede," roared Krn. Itowo;
"Take yer," came back th? deli of
little Stoll. McGillivray at eight minutes perceptibly tired, and the last minute found bim weak at the wrist. When
time was called be had drilled 10 inchei.
Then Johnson peeled. "Twenty to ten
that tbe Swede bests that by two inches," Bhoute��l a Cou-in Jack, and the
long greens flew around like hailitones.
Johnson started out at a 70 bat, there
being ginger and judgment in every
blow. He never let up on this stroke,
aud despite the discouraging remarks
of one of his adversarsies over-enthusiastic supporters be wag pounding the.
steel stronger than ever the last half
minute to go. " Pretty work," "Well
done Sweden," "Now she's cutting,"
"Posh it right through," " Zck, Zek.
Z'.'k," came frulil the crowd; "Ah,
g'wan; you're no good, you're no 'good.
I could mako a better hole than tbat
with nie finger." Then the Swede
showed his great staying qualities, for
when time was Called he was striking
a powerful blow at a -00 a minute gait.
The result was a 11',; inch hole, which
considering the hard nature of tlie
granite, is thought to rank with anything ever done in open competition.
Malcolm Mackenzie's effort was rather
disappointing to bis crowd ot friends, be
only accomp'iahing 8'.,' inches.
The time allowed was 10 minutes, the
steel used being Jd.
While the abovo event was in progress the launch rare for the Hunter
Cup was run off. In this there wen-
eleven boats lo start, tho competitors
being in sight ol the spectators the full
course.   A big surprise for all wai made
good time.   Every boy and girl secured
a prize.

<|HY, good evening. Is tbat
you?" struggled somewhat
hysterically through Beverly's lips. Not since the dear
old days of tbe stolen jam and sugar
bits had she known the feelings of a
culprit caught red handed. Tbe light
from the park lamps revealed a merry,
accusing smile on the face of Yetive,
but the faces of tbe men were serious.
Marlanx was the picture of suppressed
"It is the relief expedition, your highness," said Yetive warmly. "We
thought you were lost ln the wilds of
the Jungle."
"She Is much better protected than
we could have Imagined," said the Iron
Count, malevolently mild and polite.
"Can't I venture into the park wlth-
���ut being sent for?" asked Beverly,
ready to fly Into the proper rage. The
pink had left her cheeks white. "I am
proud to observe, however, that the
relief expedition ls composed of the
most distinguished people in all Grau-
etark. Is there any significance to be
attached to the circumstance?"
"Can't we also go strolling ln the
park, my dear?" plaintively asked Yetive.
"It depends upon where we stroll, I
fancy," suggested Marlanx derisively.
Beverly flashed a fierce look at the
head of the army. "By the way, Baron
Dangloss, where Is -the Incomparable
Baldos shot a startled glance at tbe
two men and ln an Instant comprehension came to him. He knew the secret
ot Haddan'a constant companionship.
An expression of bitter scorn settled
upon his mouth. Dangloss mumbled a
reply, at which the Iron Count laughed
"I am returning to the castle," said
Beverly coldly. "Pray don't let me
Interfere with your stroll. Or is It
possible that you think it necessary to
deliver me safely to my nurse now that
you have found me?"
"Don't be angry, dear," whispered
Tetlve, coming close to her side. "I
will tell you all about It later on. It
was all due to Count Marlanx."
"It was all done to humiliate me,"
replied Beverly, indignation surpassing
confusion at last.   "I hate all of you."
"Oh, Beverly!" whispered the princess In distress.
"Well, perhaps you were led Into
It," retracted Beverly, half mollified.
"Look at that old villain whispering
over there. No wonder his wives up
and died. They Just had to do It. I
hate all but you and Count Halfont
and Baron Dangloss," which left but
one condemned.
"And Baldos?" added Yetive, patting
her hand.
"I wish you'd be sensible," cried Beverly most ungraciously, and Yetive's
soft laugh Irritated her. "How long
had you been listening to us?"
"Not so much as the tiniest part of
a minute," said Yetive, recalling another disastrous eavesdropping. "I am
much wiser than wheu Baldos first
came to serve you. We were quite a
distance behind Count Marlanx, I assure you."
"Then he heard something?" asked
Beverly anxiously.
"He has been ln a detestable mood
ever since we rejoined him. Could h<��
bave heard anything disagreeable?"
"No; on the contrary, It was quite
All this time Baldos was standing at
attention a few paces off, a model soldier despite the angry shifting of his
black eyes. He saw that tbey bad been
caught in a most unfortunate position.
No amount of explaining could remove
the impression that had been forced
upon the witnesses, voluntary or involuntary, as the case might be. Baldos could do nothing to help her, while
she was compelled to face the suspicions of her best friends. At best it
could be considered nothing short of a
clandestine meeting, tbe consequences
of which she must suffer, not he. In
his heated brain he was beginning to
picture scandal with all the disgusting
details that grow out of evil misrepresentation.
Count Halfont separated himself
from tbe group of three and advanced
to tho sedan chair. Marlanx and Dangloss were arguing earnestly ln low
"Shall we return, your highness?"
asked Halfont, addressing both with
one of his rarest smiles. "If I remember aright, we were to dine en famllle
tonight, and It Is well upon the hour.
Besides, Count Marlanx is a little distressed by your absentmindedness,
Miss Beverly, and I fancy he is eager
to have It out with you."
"My absentmindedness? What is ft
that I have forgotten?" asked Beverly,
puckering her brow.
"That's the trouble, dear," said Yetive. "You forgot your promise to teach
him how to play that awful game called poker. He has waited for you at the
castle since 6 o'clock. It ls now 8. Is
It any wonder that he led the searching
party? He has been on nettles for an
hour and a half."
"Goodness, I'll wager he's ln a temper 1" exclaimed Beverly, with no remorse, but some apprehension.
"It would be wisdom to apologize to
hlm," suggested Yetive, and her uncle
nodded earnestly.
"All right. I think I can get him Into
good humor without half trying. Oh,
Count Marlanx! Come here, please.
You aren't angry with me, are you?
Wasn't It awful for mo to run away
and leave you to play solitaire Instead
���f poker? But, don't you kuow, I was
so wretchedly tired after tbe ride, and
I knew you wouldn't mind If I"��� and
so sbe ran glibly on, completely forestalling him, to the secret amusement
of the others. Nevertheless, she was
nervous and embarrassed over the situation.    Jbere  was  every. ..rea.son, .to
rear tbat'the Iron Count bad hcfiftrand
seen enough to form a pretty good opinion of what hnd passed between herself nnd Baldos lu this remote corner
of the park. A deep sense of shame
was takiug possession of her.
Marlanx, smiling significantly, looked
Into her brave little face and permitted iier to talk on until she had run out
of breath aud composure. Then he
bowed with exaggerated gallantry and
informed her that he was hers to com-
iumuI and that It was not for him to
forgiv:, but to accept whatever was
be." gracious pleasure. He called upon
tbe chair bearers, and they took up
.- their burden. Beverly promptly changed
I her mind and concluded to walk to the
castle. And so they started off, tbe
chair going ahead as If out of commission forever. Despite ber efforts
to do so the American girl���feeling
very much abused, by the way���was
unsuccessful In the attempt to keep
the princess at her side. Yetive deliberately walked ahead with Halfont
and Dangloss. It seemed to Beverly
that they walked unnecessarily fast
and that Marlanx was provoklngly
slow. Baldos was twenty paces behind, as was his custom.
"Is it necessary for me to ask you to
double the number of lessons I am to
have?" Marlanx asked. He was quite
too close to her side to please Beverly.
"Can't you learn In one lesson? Most
Americans think they know all about
poker after the first game."
"I am not so quick witted, your highness."
"Far be It from me to accelerate
your wits, Count Marlanx. It might
not be profitable."
"You might profit by losing, you
know," he ventured, leaning still closer. "Poker ts not tlie only game of
chance. It was cbauce that gave me a
winning hand thla evening."
"I don't understand."
"It shall be my pleasure to teach
you in return for Instructions I am to
have. I have tried to teach your excellent guard one phuse of the game.
He has not profited, I fear. He has
been blind enough to pick a losing
hand lu spite of my advice. It is the
game of heorts." Beverly could not
but understand. Sbe shrank away
with a shudder. Her wits did not desert ber, however.
"I know the game," she said steadily.
"One's object ls to cast off all the
hearts. I have been very lucky at the
game, Count Marlanx."
"Uump!" was his Ironical comment.
"Ab, Isn't this a night for lovers?" he
went ou. changing tack suddenly. "To
stroll in the shadows, where even tbe
moon is blind, Is u joy tbat love alone
provides. Come, fair mistress, share
this Joy with me."
With that his band dosed over her
soft iirm above the elbow, and sbe
was drawn close to bis side. Beverly's
first shock of revulsion was succeeded
by the distressing certainty that Bnldos was a helpless witness of this Indignity. She tried to Jerk her arm
away, but be held it tight.
"Release my arm, sir!" she cried,
hoarse with passion.
"Call your champion, my lady. It
will mean his death. I have evidence
that will insure his conviction and execution within an hour. Nothing could
save bim.   Cnll him, I say, and"���
"I will call bim. He is my sworn
protector, and I will command him to
knock you down If you dou't go away,"
she flared, stopping decisively.
"At bis peril"���
"Bnldos!" she called, without a second's hesitation. The guard came up
with a rush Just as Marlanx released
her arm and fell away with a muttered Imprecation.
"Your highness!" cried Baldos, who
had witnessed everything.
"Are you afraid to die?" she demand*
ed briefly and clearly.
"That Is all," she said, suddenly calm.
"I merely wanted to prove it to Count
Marlanx." Tact hnd come to her relief most opportunely. Like a flash she
saw that a conflict between the commander of the army and a guard could
have but one result, and that disastrous to the latter. One word from
her would have ended everything foi
"Stop;" almost shrieked Beverly.
Baldos. She saw through the Iron
Count's ruse as If by divine Inspiration
and profiled where he least expected
her to excel In shrewdness, Marlanx
bad deliberately Invited the assault by
tho guard. His object hnd been to
snare Baldos into his own undoing,
and a horrible undoing it would havo
been. One blow would have secured
the desired result. Nothing could have
snved tho guard who had struck bis
superior officer, but Beverly thought
ln time.
"To die ls easy, your highness. You
have but to nsk it of me," said Baldos,
whose face was while and drawn.  ,
"She hns no liitentjpt-^f d_>ninn_jng
sucTi a pleasant sacrifice," observed
Count Marlanx, covering his failure
skillfully. "Later ou. perhaps, she may
sigu your death warrant. I am proud
to hear. sir. that a member of my
corps has the courage to face the Inevitable, even though he be an alien
and unwilling to die on the field of battle. You bave my compliments, sir.
You hnve been on Irksome duty for

and her companions were wailing for
them nt the fountain a hundred yards

In low tones.

staring nt bim like a wounded thing.
"1 humbly Implore you not to misconstrue the meaning of the term, your

standing squarely in front of Marlanx.

"If I strike you It will be to kill,
Count Marlanx. The paper, sir." Baldos towered over the Iron Count, and
there was danger in bis daredevil voice.
"Surely, sir, I am but obeying your own
Instructions. 'Protect the princess and
all that ls hers with your life,' you have
said to me."
"Oh, I wish you hadn't done this,
Baldos!" cried Beverly, panic stricken.
"You have threatened my life. I
shall not forget it, fool! Here Is the
precious note, your highness, with my
condolences to the writer." Marlanx
passed the note to ber and then looked
triumphantly at the guard. "I dare
sny you have done all you can, sir. Do
you wish to add anything more?"
"What can one do when dealing with
his superior and finds him a despicable
coward?" said Baldos, with cool Irony.
"You are reputed to be a brave soldier. I kuow that to be false or I
would ask you to draw the sword you
carry and"��� He was drawing his
sword as he spoke.
"Baldos!" Implored Beverly. Her
evident concern Infuriated Marlanx.
In his heart he knew Baldos to be a
man of superior birth and a foeman
not to be despised from his own station. Carried away by passion, he
flashed his sword from its sheath.
"You have drawn on me, sir," he
marled. "I must defend myself
against even such as you. You will
find tbat I am no coward. Time Is
short for your gallant lover, madam."
Before she could utter a word of protest the blades had clashed, and they
were hungry for blood. It was dark
In the shadows of the trees, and the trio
were quite alone with their tragedy.
She heard Baldos laugh recklessly ln
response to Marlanx's cry of:
"Oh, the shame of fighting with such
carrion as you!"
"Don't jest at a time like this, count,"
aald the guard softly. "Remember
that I lose, no matter which way it
goes. If you kill me I lose, If I beat
you I lose. Iteni.-uher, you can still
have me shot for insubordination and
conduct unbecoming"���
"Stop!" almost shrieked Beverly. At
the risk of personal Injury sbe rushed
between the two swordsmen. Both
drew back and dropped their points.

The history of Devonport, which,
prior to 1824, was called Plymouth,
goes back to the days of hemp and

outcome of the modern steam navy.
It was to the foresight of Lord A tick*
land that the prompt introduction ol
a new yard was due. This was in
1846, four years after the -team fri-
igate Firebrand had marked a first
stage in the revolution in the propulsion of warships. As at first planned, Keyham had two large basins
and three docks, and it wan mostly
used as a repairing yard. It was also
the training ground of our young en-
|gineer officers before the amalgama*

all the cadets together at Osborne for

Mr. Sydney Olivier Is Highly Popular
With the Jamaicans.
Mr.  Sydney  Olivier,  who succeeds
Sir. J. Alexander Swettenham as Governor of Jamaica,  iB highly popular
with the Jamaicans, and enjoys their
confidence in a marked degree.   From
1899 to 1904 he was Colonial  Secretary   in   Jamaica,   and during   three
years of  that  period  he  was  acting
Governor of the colony.     So greatly
'were his aervices esteemed that when,
following  the  calamitous earthquake
that destroyed Kingston recently. Sit
j Alexander Swettenham asked for per-
imiBsion to retire, there was a unani-
imous wish on the part of the press
;and  the    people    that    Mr.   Olivier
1 should receive the post.   In the quarter of a century during which he has
'been associated with the Colonial Of-
ifice Mr. Olivier has filled various positions connected with the West Indian
colonies, and has undertaken several
important missions, one of which was
! as secretary to the late Field Marshal
.Sir Henry Norman's Royal Commis-
.sion on the West Indies.    In 1890-91
Ihe was  acting Colonial  Secretary  of
; British Honduras, in 1895-6 Auditor-
General of the Leeward Islands, and
in  1898 was  sent to Washington  to
assist in reciprocity negotiations    on
i behalf of the West Indian colonies
; Apart from his distinguished servicer
Iras a colonial statesman, Mr. Oliviei
is a writer of graceful verse and prose.
In  1881  he  published   a volume  oi
"Poems and Parodies," but his work
in prose  has  been confined  to  bril
iliant essays and magazine articles on
I Socialism, economics and art. He has
I been from the beginning one of the
leading lights of the Fabian 8ociety,
and  was  its  secretary  from  1886  to
1890.   He was one of the contributors,
.with Mr.  George Bernard Shaw and
[others, to the famous Fabian essays,
[which represent, perhaps, the great-
i est effort of the society in the popularization of Socialism.
Girl Masquerades aa Boy.
A remarkable story of a girl who
,was induced by her mother to mas*
iquerade as an errand boy in order to
rob her employer was told at the
. Liverpool, Eng., Police Court recently.
Emily Barnes, an intelligent girl ol
fifteen, said that after conversation
with her mother she dressed up as
a boy some months ago. and obtained
work running errands. A few weeks
ago, under the name of "Harold
Barnes" she found employment in the
shop of Mr. Jacobus. Noticing where
the money was kept she hid one night
in the cellar. In the early hours of
the following morning, Bhe broke open
the till with an axe and stole ��4, subsequently giving the money to hei
mother. Suspicion, however, fell upon the supposed boy, and she was
charged at tlie Police Court without-
her real sex being discovered. It
was only when remanded to tha
workhouse that she confessed to being
a girl.
An  Accommodating  Peg
One of tlie disadvantages of modern shoemaking is that the peg
won't fit itself into the hole. Time
was, according to Mayor E. F.
Blown of Marlboro, when it was
much   more   accommodating.
"One duy," he recently informed
the Boot and Shoe club, "my father,
a pioneer in the business, hit the
oeg nnd it flew up. What happened? Probably you won't believe
me, but it's a fact all the same. The
peg hit the ceiling, came down exactly into the hole, and was driven
in. But, you know," added Mayor
Brown, with a smile, "we don't peg

Some Species Are Immune to the
Most Deadly Drugs.
W.   N.    U.   No.   638
This Bristly Little Creature Can Make
a Meal of Arsenic or Opium and
Wash It Down With a Draft of
Prussic Acid Without Discomfort.
Poison ls surely one of the most
weird of nature's bizarre contrivances.
A tiny speck of an Innocent looking
white powder ou the tip of the tongue
means instant death If tbat powder
happens to be the deadly drug aconi-
tiue. A moment's whiff of unseen va-.
por, and if tbut vapor rises from pure
prussic acid all human aid is too late.
The strangest fact about that curious
group of bodies called poisons Is tbat
sometimes tbey are not poisons. Of
course every one knows that when
kept under control by tho skillful hand
of the physician poisons are most valuable medicines. But few persons are
aware of the still more curious fact;
that poisons wbeu taken by certain animals even in large quantities are quite
Yet, strange as It may seem, this Is
perfectly true. Take, for Instance, the
hedgehog. This bristly little animal Is
absolutely poison proof. It can eat
without discomfort as much opium as
a hardened Chinese can smoke hi a.
fortnight and can wash a meal down,
with as much prussic acid as would
kill a regiment of soldiers. It ls capable of swallowing arsenic with just
as much relish as it eats cockroaches.
It is quite immune to tbe venom of the
snake, though tbe prickly hedgehog,
has little need to fear tbe approach of,
such a reptile. It bas even been stated
that it can swallow corrosive sublimate, and yet this is a virulent poison
which human beings must handle with
caution, for even a solution of it externally applied has been known to cause
Cyanide of potassium Is another
deadly substance of which the hedgehog need have no fear, and yet the
merest trace of tlie poison is sufficient
to cause a full grown man to foam at
the mouth nnd lose the power of bis
limbs. Truly tbe hedgehog is a strange
freak, and yet not so inexplicable as
the poisons by which he refuses to be
Man Is said to resemble the monkey
ln more ways than one; but, whatever
characteristics they may have In common, the ape differs from the human
being in this respect���he can take with
Impunity as much strychnine as would
kill two men instantly. The monkey,
curiously enough, shares the immunity
to strychnine poisoning with inverte-,
brate animals. Another phenomenon is,1
the rat. The number of rat poisons!
sold by druggists Is legion, but there is'
oue poison which never enters intr^
their composition���namely, digitalin,1
the active principle of the foxglove/
One-half grain of this poisonous prin-,
ciple suffices to kill a man within three!
quarters of an hour, but the rat absolutely refuses to let it kill him.
When It ls discovered that a human
being has swallowed oxalic acid, the
first thing the doctor does ls to give his
unfortunate patient a good dose of
chalk, technically known as calcium
carbonate. Strange to relate, chickens
are not poisoned by oxalic acid, for the
simple reason tbat their Intestines contain tbe antidote in the form of quantities of calcium, which combine with
the poison and render It quite barm-
less. It is interesting, however, to
mention tbat If oxalic acid is injected
into the blood of a fowl It would be
poisoned. It Is only when given by the
mouth that the acid conies in contact
with the antidote. However, as chickens are not provided with hypodermic
syringes, tbey are not likely to run any
If China were Inhabited by pigeons
Instead of by people who speak pigeon
English, a costly war and no end of
controversy might have been averted,
for pigeons are not demoralized by
opium. You cannot put a pigeon to
Bleep with the "drowsy giant," simply
because there is something In the bird's
Interior which resists the narcotic Influence of the morphine to which
opium owes Its activity.
There is little to connect the Russian
peasant with a goat���unless it is beard
���yet nevertheless both have one trait
In common���neither ls harmed by hemlock. It was the juice of the hemlock,
so we hnve been told until we are tired
of bearing It, that killed Socrates. Ever
since then it hns been on the poison list
as far as civilized beings are concerned; but, all the same, roots of hemlock
are eaten as food by tbe Russian peasants���and by goats.
In one respect the peasant of the
Austrian Tyrol resembles the hedgehog, because be can take ln one dose
as much arsenic as would kill several
Americans. This is not because tbe
peasant is provided with any special
mea*��. of combating the effects of the
drug, but because he habituates himself to it. The Tyrolean finds that arsenic Increases his power of endurance.
He commences by taking nn eighth
part of a grain for a dose, which is
gradually Increased until he can take
without any 111 effect five or more
grains at a time.
Experts hnve not been able to make
up their minds why these ppon'o become tolerant to tbe drug. The most
plausible theory put forward up to tbe
present is that an antitoxin is formed
by the administration of the poison
which Immunizes the sublect, just as

Sale of the Great Pablo  Herd to the
Dominion  Government Arouses
Public   Feeling
The fact that" the Canadian government caught Uncle Sam napping an..
purchased the big buffalo herd ai
Pablo has aroused public feeling
greatly in the United States. The
New York Tribune voices this sentiment when it says: "The last oi
the great herds of buffulo is about
to disappear from American territory. For several months Presid.-n
Roosevelt has bsen making ever,
effort to round up the famous hero
on the Flathead reservation. It con
sisted of some 200 head of the largest
and finest in the country.
"Despite the president's watchfulness, however, and his earnest efforts to keep the herd in the United
States, the buffalo have been driven
off before bis eyes, so to speak, by
the Canadian government to make
their permanent home in Canada
The price paid for the herd was
about $150,000. So disappears from
the countrv a famous reminder ol
the past. President Roosevelt mean
while is inconsolable. He has been
in communication with scores of
persons on tbe subject, using all hit
influence, and on his own ground
and in his own game be has been
"The herd originally contained
some 500 head of buffalo, young and
old, but it has been reduced by th
sale of small numbers to zoological
societies. The herd is the propeit
of Michael Pablo, and is at present
grazing a few miles from Missoula.
Montana. Pablo journeyed to Wash
iugton some months ago to see the
president about selling the buffalo
The president, with characterise
energy, sat down and in the presence of Pablo wrote several letter.*
to various representatives askim
them to assist him in buying the
herd. It was his intention to plac
them in the Yellowstone nationa
park. Since their purchase by the
Canadian government the preside: t
has expressed his disappointment in
no  uncertain  terms."
Comment from  Boston
Lovers of the splendid buffalo, thc
most typical animal of all Ameiic.i.
the one which suggests most strongl
our early days of pioneering, an<5
one of the grandest creatures on the
face of the earth, says the Bosto:
Journal, will hear with sadness tha
the Pablo herd on the Flathead reservation, Montana, has been sold
to the Canadian government. Th*
bulls will be moved to Canada aboul
May 1, and the cows and calve
will be sent north in July. There
are between 400 and 500 buffaloe
in the herd, which is the largest in
the world.
Thus passes to another governmen'
that which it should have been the
pride of our own to retain. How
could the pitiful $150,000, the price
said to have been paid by Canada,
have been permitted to stand in the
way of our retention as national property of this splendid and unrivalled
group  of  buffalo?
At present nearly all of these animals that we have are privately
owned and are thus liable to the
changes of time, the whims of heirs
or the needs of sudden poverty.
The buffalo cannot be regarded as
safe from extinction until large and
increasing herds are owned by the
government forever. Canada sees
the importance of such a system, and
we honor her for it.
Park  Prepared  for Them
Forest and Stream says: Mr.
Douglas, superintendent of the National park, Banff, will superintend
the shipment of the dry stock and
bulls the third week in May and the
cows and calves will be shipped in
August. All arrangements are completed. The shipment will be made
from Revallie station by wav of Missoula, Helena, Great Falls, Leth-
bridge, Calgary, Edmonton, I.amont,
on the Canadian Northern railway,
and from thence by trail two miles
to the Elk Island park, some fifteen
miles east of Fort Saskatchewan.
The Elk Island park contains sixteen sections of land fenced in by
a woven wire fence.
These buffalo originated from a
pair secured by Messrs. Pablo &
Allard some twenty-five years ago,
about the time the last of the wild
buffalo disappeared. By careful
breeding and handling thev have
raised the number to some 400, the
whole of which have been secured
by the Dominion government. Mr.
Douglas bad charge of the deal.

.Many Men Say They Like It, but They
' Don't Like It
In a paper read at a meeting of an
association for tbe study of tuberculosis an eminent doctor said tbat ono
of the curious facts connected with tho
'practice of tbe cold bath In the morning is that so mauy of its votaries positively declare that they enjoy It He
contends that tbey do not and cannot
enjoy It. Tbe doctor is doubtless right
as far as he goes, but be does not go
for enough. He misses the main point
perhaps the only point worth emphasizing.
Tfetre Is abundant reason to believe
that tbe most curious fact connected
with tbe cold bath ln the morning Is
that so many people who insist that
they enjoy It do not take it. There Is
vicarious atonement, and there Is also
vicarious bathing, and it Is a very easy
matter to enjoy a bath that Is not taken, the bath of somebody else. Almost
anybody gifted with a little Imagination can sing the praises of a cold bath
In the morning. There are the pleasurable, even delightful, shudders of the
first dip and splash; the brisk rub with
a coarse crash towel; the warm, health
���giving glow; tbe new man feeling, exhilarating, uplifting, as one gets Into
ills attire for tbe day's work, and,
above all, the sense of cleanliness Imparted by the cold bath every morning.
And it ts equally easy to take a cold
bath every morning. It only remains
to turn on tbe hot water faucet and
enter the tub. Or both faucets may be
turned on and, without entering tbe
tub, oue may stir the water violently
with bis bands, draw long breaths and
shiver, not perceptibly, but audibly.
It will all sound remarkably lifelike,
this performance, wonderfully like taking a cold bath. Even an alert and suspicious sentinel, stationed at the door,
his ear delicately attuned to what is
_,*olng on within, may be readily deceived by the cold bath In the morning.
Contemplate, some broiling August
forenoon, the man who tells you that
ie fairly revels in the cold bath on
Winter mornings as he gingerly steers
his bare feet through the ripples that
are lazily lapping the beach at a sboro
resort, and believe In him and trust
bim if you can. Watch him advance
as If he were going to meet his doom,
hesitate, glance shoreward longingly,
retreat, immersing himself slowly, reluctantly, Inch by inch. Suddenly ha
remembers tbat he must wet his head
If he would avoid a chill, and he pauses
to shampoo his hair In the sad sea
waves���this hero of a thousand frigid
baths on a thousand frozen mornings!
As a matter of fact, what a man may
do alone with his sponge In his bathroom no other man may know, and
what he pretends he does may be al
"false  as  dicers'  oaths."
Things Not to Do at Table.
Eratmus, the old Dutch philosopher
and theologian, in his curious essay
"On Behavior at Meals," remarks tbat
It ls "very rude to blow one's nose on
the tablecloth" or to "wipe one's fingers
on one's neighbor's coat." He also advises the guest "not to give dogs your
bones to crack under the table or feed
the cat or encourage animals to jump
on the table. This may offend your
host or lead to the soiling of his carpet" An admonition that might well
be observed In the present day. "Above
all," he says, "do not lick your plate.
It Is an act tbat ill becomes a cat, let
alone a gentleman."

Are   Some    Customs    In    Connection
With Parliament of Britain.
It is worth knowing, says Answera,
that there are six boys who have a
right to sit in Parliament, in tha
House of Commons, though they cannot take part in the debates or vote,
of course. But they have the privilege of claiming seats in the special
gallery which is allotted to them,
whenever they wish for such, and
each day the authorities of the House
send down to Westminster School to
ask if the "King's Scholars" there
desire to use the six seats which are
their right, or if not all six, how
many. And a list has to be sent to
the Clerk of the House from the
school, stating the names and positions in school of the scholars who
intend to avail themselves of this
quaint privilege.
Another curious claim which these
Westminster "King's scholars" have
the right to make relates to tha
House of Commons, and is always
allowed when requested. This is the
right to use the Terrace of the
House as their strolling place on
Sunday afternoons! And that will explain why, on a beautiful summer
8unday, passengers on the river
steamers are so often surprised to observe clusters of boys, in cap and
gown, promenading on the terrace as
though it belonged to them.

Aborigines In Queensland Encouraged
to Start Banking Accounts.
Blacks with banking accounts constitute the latest development in
Queensland. With a view to the encouragement of thrift, the department
in charge of aboriginals in the state
is pressing their employers to pay
them wages, and at the same time
urging on the blacks themselves, both
male and female, the importance of
banking the money, with tbe result
'lint most of them have banking accounts. The system was recently in-
mgurated in connection with the inmates of the G��rambah aboriginal station, many of whom are employed in
clearing and farm work, and alrendy
fifty bankbooks show a credit of ��150.
Vs far as possible every native within the care of the department is being put to work, many of the girls
being sent to Brisbane, where they
enter domestic service. There are
���bout 120 girls now in Brisbane, and
all have banking accounts. The de-
nartment is also supervising the expenditure of the money by sending
the lady inspector with the girls when
making purchases.
Adventure   at  Windsor.
The Prince of Wales had an interesting adventure on Good Friday afternoon which incidentally revealed
His Royal Highness' kindness ol
With the Princess of WaleB and
Princess Mary he was motoring from
Frogmore to Windsor, when, near the
entrance tc Beaumont College, the
royal party came on an overturned
carriage, with the horse imprisoned
beneath it by the fetlock, and a party
of four young people standing disconsolately by the roadside. The
driver of the carriage was vainly endeavoring to release the horse.
Making enquiries, the Prince ol
Wales ascertained that the party consisted of two young London men and
their sweethearts, and that they had
met with the accident through the
borse kicking over the Bhaft and overturning the trap. The prince took
iff his overcoat, had the tools taken
int. of his motor-car, and directed a
series of operalions designed to releasa
ihe imprisoned horse and set the trnn
on its wheels. But the motor tools
were not strong enough, and th.
prince despatched a man to Vtunny
mede Lodge for an axe and a crow*
bar. When these implements were obtained, the prince, who all this tine
had remained unrecognized, worled
with the driveT of tbe oarriace and
the chauffeur with all the energy ol
a trained workman, but it was found
that the carriage would have to ba
taken to pieces.
At this moment a soldier rode up
on a bicycle, recognized the prince,
and imparted to the crowd the fact
that the friendly motorist wns the
Prince of Wales, whereupon a hearty
cheer was raised. The prince senl
the soldier into Windsor for assistance, gnve him half a sovereign, and
resumed  his  interrupted  journey.
A Cure for Costiveness���Costive-
ness comes from the refusal of the
excretory organs to perform their
duties regularly from contributory
causes, usually disordered digestion.
Parmelee's Vegetable Pills, prepared
on scientific principles, are so compounded that certain ingredients in
them pass through the stomach and
act upon the bowels so as to remove
tlieir torpor and arouse tbem to
proper action. Mnny thousands are
prepared to bear testimony to their
power in this respect.
Upton Sinclair during a recent reunion of Columbia men said that he
thought athletics too often exerted a
harmful inliuence on undergraduates.
"When I was in Chicago," Mr.
Sinclair said, "making notes for 'The
Jungle,' I knew an old lodging-
house keeper, and one night the old
man said to me, suspiciously:
" 'Do you know, I don't believe
that there student who lias taken
my fourth floor back is a student at
" 'Why not?' said I.
" 'He studies too much,' said the
old man."

A Successful Medicine���Everyone
wishes to be successful in any undertaking in which he may engage.
It is, therefore, extremely gratifying to the proprietors of Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills to know that tlieir
efforts to compound a medicine
which would prove n blessing to
mankind have been successful beyond tlieir expectations. The endor-
sation of these Pills by the public
is a guarantee that a pill has been
produced which will fulfil everything claimed for it.

Fox Jumps   Into Cradle.
There was an extraordinary termination to a run with the Duke of Beaufort's hounds recently. The run had
been a long one, and they knew thai
the !/ox was almost spent. Suddenly
the scent turned abruptly from the

Those who were following wondered
what had happened, and were more
astonished still to see the entire pack

when the whipper-in threw himsell
from his horse and gained the threshold he Baw a sight which probably
no foxhunter has ever met before oi
since. A white-faced woman stood
clasping a child in her arms, and righl
there in the cradle from which thi
infant had just been snatched, 18 cou*
pies of fierce hounds were struggling
;to devour their fox.
