J. M. Harris came in from Spakane
on Monday. He was seen at tlie ollioe
of the Star Mining and Milling Company by our ieporter, and he was in excellent spirits at being among so many
of his old friends again and at the decision of the full court in the Star-
White case. Asked for bis opinions of
the various decisions in the celebrated
cafe iu which millions of dollars aro involved, Mr. Harris said while tlie matter wns sub judice he preferred not to
give anything out for publication.
" I suppose, though, you are confident
of Ihe ultimate retultj" queried the

cJBCiilaiid. "We've won our p*int;

by the full Court, and the end is not far

The pa s> ng'-ii" o'i thcs.s. Sloe in were
thrilled for a few moments whilst at
New Denver mi Monday. There invariably is a large crowd of sightseers
watching the incoming and departure ol
the boat, and tbey, too, bad a momentary spasm ot fea". Little Ethel Burgess was playing with some other children, who suddenly missed her, and a
lady on the saloon dick who wns watching tl.e youngsters, saw the little girl
fall backwards from the wharf into tlie
water, A minute olapsed before those
on shore conld realize what was being
shouted by passengeis on the steamer,
but a man, whose name wo coul 1
not learn, jumped down and rescued
the little one. Sho was stunned and
very cold when taken from the icy
water, but we are pleased to report that
nu serious complications are feared.
The incident, which might have [roved
tragic and a whole family thereby
plunged into mourning had not the
accident been noticed by tlie lady passenger, should appeal strongly to the
C.P.R. toerect railings at these danger
points. Agents, too, should be firm in
prohibiting children unattended to loiter
around the wharves, and parents might
tlmw the attention of their offspring to

Ben Finnell, an old timer of '93 has

good deal of time around the Similka-

At the recent annual general meeting
of the Nelson Fair, held in Nelson, Mr.
G. O. Buchanan, on behalf of Kaslo,
reiterated the protest of that town in
the matter of the C.P.R. award at the
Nelson Fair, but it was promptly ruled
out of order. Can this be possible ?
The subject isone that will vitally all'eet
tbe future of the Nelson Annual Fair,
aud yet at the annual general meeting,
where such things should be minutely
discus'cd, the matter is dropped like a
hot cinder. Are the actions of a few
directors so sacred that they may' not
be criticised or disapproved by tlie body
that made them directors? It must
go on record, then, that the award was
secured at tho expense of Kaslo hy unfair means. The directors are to blame
and the Association by its apathy
assist in the perpetration of a great injustice. Tlie press ol Nelson has taken
sides, and to its credit, be it noted, it
sides with tlie right. The citizenB of
Nelson, while expressing themselves
feebly in Kaslo's favor, have notenougli
" sand " to openly attack the big bigs
who are blighting the prospects for the
1907 Fair. Now, Nelson; you stand
convicted of awarding a $100 caBh prize
to a division in charge of a director who
waa allowed to break the rules to secure
that prize. Kaslo faithfully adhered to
the code ot your own drafting and is
shabbily treated when a legitimate protest is entered. The eyes of the Koot*
enays are upon you. In plain language,
what are you going -o do about it ?

It is now generally believed that Ihe
MeBride government will Bit through
its full term ot office. Reports to the
contrary, emanating from tlie fertile
brains ot grit editors, have been served
up regularly, and those people who
placed any reliance in the spasmodic
know-it-all effusions of Iho opposition
press foil somehow tbey hare been left.
One or two Conservative papers have
made a stab at tho day Daniel will be
brought to judgment, but those days
have come and gone. The fact of the
matter is nobody knows the first
lliingabout.it, and the only stable government British Columbia ever had is
stronger even now than it were before.
That strength has been accrued by the
administration of legislation which the
people asked for; by the growing attributes of its cabinet ministers; by the
.statesmanship tit premier MeBride; and
by tlie excellent business qualities of Finance Minister Tat low and the chief of
the big spending department.
Tlie prognostication of our esteemed
contemporary down the gulch that a
four-cornered contest would prevail in
the Slocan is as unreliable as the
gloom, gloom, impenetrable gloom jibe
which was dished up by its mining
contributor a few weeks back. We have
recently covered the Slocan riding, and
in doing so failed to detect symptoms
Which would give credence to such a
supposition. It is generally believed
that Win. Hunter will be nominated to
d) tattle lor the Conservatives and that
the present member, Win, Davidson,
will seek re-election on a straight
Socialist ticket. Mr. A. B. Docksteader
has been nominated Liberal candidate
by delegates Irom Slocan City and New
Denver, and we understand he will
contest the riding.

There are two men in town who bear
such a close resemblance to one another
that ludicrms mistakes often occur.
The parties under mention are Jay-Jay
of ours and S. J. Towgood. We were at
Silverton and New Denver this week,
and our reputed double was there also-
We were the other fellow and he was
the printer. Is fin<> to bo the brewery
man, but what's his opinion of the
profiesh. We hope S. J. is a good man,
for we have enough troubles of our own
without carrying hi". Our little girl
went to the depot here ou Monday to
meet the papa who was not on tlie train.
S. J. was, however, and he looked good
to her, for papa was claimed. Miss
Margery says sho doesn't care; oven
Mike thought it was papa. Now, that's
too bad too good.
It is refreshing lo note the cocky way
in which some ofour curlers carry them
selves now. Antedelnvian and moss-
covered stunts hitherto urged on the
"guid wide" for late home-coming have
been shelved for the next four months,
" Been down lo the rink, my dear, " is
perfictly in order, nn', " Watching the
glass, my lovo," might do, until the
mater asserts curiisity as to the con
tents of the crystal.
From the trouble and divorce cases
in foreign marriages we would advis'
Slocan girls to marry home boys and
not look for royalty.

British Columbia's politics are complicated more by personal than by public qucsions. Tlie province is the rich

It is quite possible that Enrico Caruso, the Italian tenor, who has been arrested on the charge of insulting a
woman, is the victim of error.
All this of course is on lhe assumption that the woman smiled at Caruso.
It may be that the Italian is a liar as
well as a tenor. The combination isn't
unique. But granting Caruso spoke tbe
trui h, admitting that the woman smiled
at him, what can be said in defense of
the haughtyand contemptuous manner
with which tlie Italian ignored the

Nelson, B.C., Dec. 8rd, 1906.
Editor Slocan Mining Review.
Dear Sir,���In your issue dated 29th
November, 1900, there appears an editorial under the head lines of " Bamboozle nnd Humbug," which could only
h ave bi en written under false informa-
lion, otherwise you are a distorter of
the facts with a purpose in view, both
as regards the Literal Convention held
at New Denver, B.C., on 26th November, 1906, and as to my position regarding the nomination, but I prefer lo
believe you were wrongly infumed an 1
respe'cttully ask you under the circumstances to give this letter the same publicity through the columns of your
paper as the editorial above mentioned,
thus in fairness helping to protect not
only myself but Slocan district from
any " hole in the corner " nomination
as you insinuate the recent one at New
Denver to have been. I had no part
whatever eiiher in the caUing of or
work of the convention other than my
address and in addition the replying to
various questions.
Tlie call for the convention was duly
extended to all the various points in
the Sl'can district, and good and sufficient notice thereof given by tbe executive resident member of the Interior
District Liberal Council, the convention
had a good representative attendance,
lhe delegates from those points not personally represented at the convention
having reported their being in accord
with the action of the convention nnd
even your own town Sandon I am
pleased 11 say was represented in person by a sturdy miner Irom that burg,
yet it might be impossible for a Liberal
Convention to bo repreeentati o in the
eyes of an opposing partizannewspaper;
however if there was any dishonesty of
purpose as you ilisil tune it did not and
does not lie with the writer, as I would
not toleiate for a minute the idea of
accepting a nomination at the hands of
anything but a representative convention, and I plainly ask that any liberal
who peruses this letter and who may
have the slightest suspicion as to the
trunk, open and above board manner in
which the convention was held that
he immediately tegister his kick in
writing to the Executive member of
tho Interior Di-trict Liberal Comic I,
D. Arnot, of Slocan City, so that should
such disapproval as you stale have any
real ex stenc- tlf6 matter may he deah
with by the Liberals mid their different
associations, otherwise hold ids or their
P'tice, as it rests entirely with the Liberals of Slocan district, the fight being
entirely thei'S, not mine, while I may
add it is only exploiters of lhe people
who seek nomination through other
than open methods.
1 admire an honest opp nent and a
fair light and I will put up ihat kind of
fight and that only, thus lean accept
as a compliment your insinuation as
to my speech (which you falsely say
was " never uttered') as probably tlie
ideas referred to wero unexpected by
your responsible government being foreign to the practise ot our present administration in B.C. I have evtJry coil;
fidence in the intelligence of the work
ing men ol Slocan district and believ
ihey will apply common sense in dealing witli the present governmenl fairly
ou their past record, without much regard to the prattling of pnrtizans.
In conclusion the Nelson people of
any class or "clique" had nothing whatever to do with this matter, and the
Liberals of that city even including
Editor Dean had no more knowledge ot
my nomination than yon had, until the
proceedings of lhe convention were reported to the " Daily News," and the
complete accuracy of those proceedings
and ray speech so reported can be verified by every gentleman that was present at that Convention.
You will be welcomed to our meetings
at Sandon as a Newspaper man when
the fight actively opens and I would
sincerely hope for your own good Hint
von may report only the truth aud not
falsehood as you have dono in this case.
Yours truly
We publish the foregoing communication in its entirety so that Mr. Docksteader and Irs parisans will have an
opportunity of answering the charge
made in the columns of our last issue
that the so-called " Liberal Convention "
was not a representative gathering of
Slocan liberals. In this we cannot retract o*ie word. We Biid then, nnd
we again repeat it, that a clique from
Slocan City and New Denver were tlie
whole cheese. Iho bluff is not strong
enough, and Until we aro furnished with
the names of tho delegates outside tlie
two wc mentioned, we shall  continue
to stand pat. We are no! n "distorter
of tlie facts," but we have "a purpos
n view." We purpose giving Mr; Docksteader every show to deny the allegation that no official delegates were present from Sandon, Three [Forks, McGuigan, Roseberry or Nakusp. The
fight is not ours, and forjtliatj'cason'we
will ask our correspondent not to quibble or dodge the question. It will be
noticed that the letter above contains
but one name other than the signatory.
It will also be noticed that apbantasmic
" sturdy miner " was there from Sandon. We were at New Denver on Monday and Tuesday last, and on challenging the Grits there to name the delegate
from Sandon, it turned out to be " Mr.
er-er, Mr. er-er���or, Mr. Mr. Mr. can't
think of bis name for a moment." Wo
enquired also the names of the delegates
from Iho other points mentioned, but wo
are still waiting. Perhaps Mr. Duck*
Bteader will rise to tho'oooasion. Wo
may bo misinformed, but the information was received direct from those in
whom he is putting Ids trust. We prefer to think Mr, Docksteader has b*cn
fooled into believing that the packed
meeting was a representative gathering
of delegates, for he speuks manly as to
his sincerity of purpose.
We do nut deny that invitations wero
si nt out, but we know that tho senders
had no more idea who would receive
them than the man in the moon.
1 iTherewas no particular hurry that we
know of for the nomination, and wc do
think that a nominee before accepting a
candidacy should bo absolutely sure he
is receiving tho whole-hearted support
of his parly. Mr. Docksteader infeis
that his nomination was unsought for,
and if he is to be believed, for Ihat reason
he should be doubly sure of unanimity.
But he is not, and he palpably shows
his weakness.
Mr. Docksteader should be the last
to prattle of pat tizan newspapers. Did
not tho Daily News give his elcciion
address premier posiii'n on its front
page and not charge the usual advertising rates ? Oh, yes, Deansey is innocent, all right.
Wo are pleased to receive so many
bouquets from the nominee. If he says
that verbatim rep it in ourcotepi. wns a
really accurate one, wc shall have to let
it go at that, but at tho same time the
"reporter" must be very imaginative.
Let the reader imagine a nominee expressing surprise at receiving a nomination ai d a few minutes later r'sing
and digging down in his pocket for a
yard or two of prepared manuscript.
Oh, no; it wasn't cut and dried. If Mr.
Docksteader can cough up a fifteen hundred word speech on such short notice, '
ho will certainly bo there with the goods
on the stump,
We shall certainly accept the invitation to the Sandon meeting when tho
tight is on, and we sincerely hope for
the candidate's own good he has something more tangiblo to submit to tho
discerning electors of this burg than
the comprehensive rigmarole which
heavers fell from his lips and which
we read in his party paper of Nelson.

' "H** found o'urselves in a situation
to which there was no other Issue.
Only 1 wanted to find another pretext,
not wishing to mix in this quarrel
the name ot tbe young girl who has
since become my wife."
"The captain was known to lie n
formidable duelist."
"I know it, Monsieur, and ii lias
boon insinuated that fear drove tne lo
murder; in a word, I am accused ol
cowardice, I appeal to all nn" of honor, to all men of my education; Is
such a thing possible?"
There was lu his voice such an accent of truth, so much vibrating Indignation, that a murmur of approbation floated through the audience. It
was quickly repressed, however, and
the president reminded the accused
that ho was thoro to reply to the
quesllons addressed to htm, and not
to plead his cause.
The witnesses wero then called.
M. Bertrand, brother of the victim,
was tho first to give his testimony. Although It was known that he could
throw no light on thn matter, he nevertheless excited a deep curiosity. He
was a man of about forty, of sallow
complexion, and wilh sharp, restless
eyes. It was evident that to him the
guilt of Robert d'Ancel admitted of no
doubt. When reminded that the captain and himself had never shown
much fraternal affection, ho protested
that they were of the same blood; that
this blood now cried for vengeance;
that he would never rest until justice
was done! He then related his arrival
on the scene of the crime.
"It was Robert d'Ancel," he went
on, "who sent me the despatch; he
alone knew my address. During his
school days he often came lo spend a
holiday nt my home with my brother.
When I saw him, therefore, I went to
him with outstretched band; but he
pretended not to see il, and merely
bowed, ns If to a stranger, lie seemed
much preoccupied, very gloomy and
exceedingly bored by the questions
addressed him. This uneasiness
struck me. I had been I old that Robert d'Ancel and my brother were in
love with the same young girl and
that the chances seemed in George's
favor. Notwithstanding a certain
roughness, my brother was always
successful with women; he knew well
how to soften his voice and his glance
when he was in love, and the contrast
between this sudden gentleness and
his habitual bluffness was very seductive. When Robert d'Ancel refused
me his hand, it gave me the impression that he was not a stranger to my
unfortunate brother's death."
"Why did you not mention your suspicions at the time?" Interrupted tbe
"How could I, Monsieur? M. d'Ancel was known and esteemed through
the whole country, and seemed to hold
an unassailable position. Beside, what
proof could I allege against, him?
None. But the more I reflected
over this sad affair, the more
convinced I became that my first
Impression was right. George
was a stranger in tho vicinity and
could have no enemies; if he had a
few discussions, It is not admissible
that these light quarrels would excile
nn Implacable hatred. On the other
band, it is well known that Robert
d'Ancel was passionately in love; it
was the lovo of the man of study, of
a man who has really had no youth,
n sudden explosion with a violence
that bordered on madness. As soon as
he was rid of his redoubtable rival,
his somber humor disappeared. His
Joy could not be concealed; he was
so triumphant, that tho contrast with
bis former gloom Struck everybody.
When the news of his arrest reached
me, it seemed to me that I had expected It since the day when I saw him
standing beside my brother's, body.
The servant, Iscdore Benolst, was
the next to testify. He "was an ill-
favored man, with a low brow, thick
lips, and seemed very proud of the
importance given him by this affair.
At first he chose his phrases very carefully, but relaxed somewhat as be
went on, feeling sure that this brilliant assemblage was listening attentively.
"You pretend to have overheard a
violent quarrel between the accused
and Ihe victim?" asked the president.
"Yes, Monsieur, I went, with my
companions to get lhe remains of lhe
breakfast, but was alone at that moment. As I could not hear plainly, I
went nearer," replied Ihe witness.
"You have, no doubt, a habit of listening at keyholes?"
"Ob. no; for I might be caught. But.
I admit that I am Inquisitive, and was
anxious to be well Informed."
"What Interest could this altercation have for you?"
"Well, you see. Monsieur, we have
few distractions in the country, and
the affairs at Cote-Boisee were often
discussed in Iho kitchen. Each had his
candidate; mine was the caplain.
First, because M'llo Levasseur encouraged him, Ihen���"
"Then���go on."
"Then, Monsieur, people say that M,
Robert d'Ancel should have married
the elder, and not the younger sister.
In fact, I was- much amused by the
affair, and was anxious to know what
was going on. I did not reach the spot
until the end of tbe quarrel, but I
swear I heard threats."
"From M. d'Ancel?"
"Both were much excited; they were
talking at the same time and not
listening to each other. Finally the
captain hurried away, and I had
scarcely time to conceal myself behind a tree���"
"It was owing to your gossip after
the crime that you were dismissed
from service? Without proof whatever,
you accused M. d'Ancel of being the
"I was sure of It. As to my dismissal, the lady was a foreigner, and I
was tired of waiting on a table where
I could not understand a word that,
was said. I was on the point of leaving, when she gave me notice. Before
another week, the whole country was
ns sure as mysolf that tho baron had
done the deed."
"It was to you that tho peasant remit leu the revolver when found?"
"Yes, Monsieur. I paid ten francs
for It; but I do not regret my money,
for in cleaning it I found tho initials
R. A., and I immediately biought the
revolver to the authorities. My plan
was to have him arrested by iwo gendarmes before the ceremony. But
tjiero was some delov. Besides, M. lc
ProcUreur, who knew the high standing of the iwo families, wanted to
avoid scandal as much as possible.
He went to the chateau himself, and
I am told, was mistaken for a guest."
After this testimony the interest
flagged. A few neighbors and friends
who had known Robert In his childhood, were called, lint their testimony
was of no Importance.
There was a ripple of excitement,
followed bv a deathlike stillness when
thf president said:
"Call  Mile. Levasseur."
Fatigue was forgotten, and all eyes
. ->7i,l  ears  were  sLraillod  to   see    and
hear the most Important deposition of
the day.
When she reached the court house,
In the midst of a surging throng, Marine appreciated the kindness of her
old friend, the Marquis, in obtaining
permission to await her turn in a
private room. In her nervous state it
would have been exceedingly painful
to feel herself au object of curiosity
or compassion. Sho had slept but little the previous night, and was almost glad that the moment had come
when she would rid herself of the
nightmare that haunted her���like the
wounded man who is anxiously awaiting the coming of the surgeon, and
repeats to himself that once the opera-
lion is over he will bo left in peace.
Yel, in spite of all, sho still believed
In that long-expected miracle; convinced that nt the last moment the
real culprit would cry out: "That man
Is Innocent!" How often her imagination had evoked the scene���then she
saw Robert free, proud and happy,
and herself once more shut up in her
solitude, burying her secret with herself. And all would be well. Robert
would never know that sho had loved
him with passion: Edmee would never
suspect at what price her happiness
had been bought. The modesty of her
soul, that sacred modesty, would be
respected. The horrible sacrifice would
be unnecessary.
Aud in the solitude of the little
room In which sho found herself, she
held her breath in expectation. Sometimes a confused murmur would reach
her from the court-room. She knew
that if the scene evoked in her poor,
tired brain was produced, this murmur
would be transformed In acclamations,
that nothing could prevent the burst
of joy and applause. Then she would
But time passed on, and this absurd hope became weaker and weaker, and finally vanished. Her agony
now increased; sho asked herself if
her strength would carry her to the
end. It must, since she alone could
now save Robert. He would be saved!
He would emerge from this place,
where he was now seated like a vulgar criminal, with head erect. In the
midst of her anguish, Marthe felt a
sentiment of divine joy in thinking
that it was from her hand, that hand
he would not take, that he would receive freedom, tho happiness of his
whole life.
Your sis   . orus   des*!roved    this
���estlmony. According to hor. you w��rr
oo ill to go out. On her return s\\r
'ounl you exacth- as she hail left you
a prey to such pain that you could
scarcely lift your head."
Iffere the attention of the audience
became such that even tho slight mur
mur of the throng ceased.
In the absolute silence, Marthe'*
sweet voice rang out, clear and distinct:
"Monsieur, I have never told a falsehood. I would rot lie, even to save
my brother-in-law!"
"Your brother-in-law, it is possible.
Pardon me. Mademoiselle. If I allude
to a very delicate subject. But In your
neighborhood you were believed lo
be betrothed to the Baron d'Ancel."
"It was a mistake, Monsieur, we
were never betrothed. "���
"Although there may have been no
engagement between you, a Sentiment
more tender than friendship might
have led you to utter a heroic falsehood. A woman who loves will sacrifice everything, even her reputation,
to save the man she loves."
"I have lold no falsehood, Monsieur.

Canadians  a   Wed-Houscd   Pcoplo   According to Di. Goorgo Johnson.
Dr. Geo. Johnson, sx-Domtnlon Statistician. Is now taking life easily running an apple farm In the, land of
Evangeline. He finds time between
campaigns against caterpillars and
moths lo write entertainingly on statistical subjects In Chats on tho Census In the Wolfville (N. S.) Acadian.
In the last of these he shows that Canadians are a well housed people.
"Just a preliminary wold or two
about the census results In the large,"
writes Dr. Johnson. "There are a million families Inhabltating the Dominion, that Is there were when the census of 1901 was taken. They are Ideally housed, for nearly every family has
a house by Itself f ir a home. In the
census returns the condition of all
families of the Dominion was Investigated excepting those living in the unorganized territories of the Northwest,
and some unorganized districts In the
Province ot Quebec. 1,018,302 families were studied to see how they were
housed, leaving 52,445 famlles of whom
particulars were not obtained. Of these
1,018,302 families, 985,153 occupied each
a house. There wero 29,503 houses in
which two families dwelt; 2,018 In each
of which there were three families, and
968 which sheltered four or more families. Nearly one half of these 985.-
163 families occupied houses having
from six to ten rooms. There were
488,780 such families or 49.6 per cent.
That Is, nearly 50 families in each 100
were comfortably and roomily lodged,
seeing that the average family In the
Dominion has about five persons, over
13 families In the hundred have flva-
roomed houses; over 14 have four-
roomed dwellings; about 10 have three-
roomed shelters; about 8" have two
rooms, and over 7 in every 100 ot our
families dwell In mansions having
eleven or more rooms. These particulars Indicate that the people of Canada have reached a very fair condition
of living, and need not be envious of
the  people of any other country.   We

Three Views of the   Great   8t. Paul's
Cathedral  of  London���An  Impression  That  Is  Bewildering.
Everything about St. Paul's Cathedral Is on a grand scale. It is strikingly so in the great grey cupola, familiar landmark, seen below in the southern roadway, from the river, or the
north tawer of the Crystal Palace.
Yet the grandeur, within and without,
grows dwarf-life when surveying from
the outside galleries the wonderful
panoramic scene of London. Dome,
chapels, monuments, the gold and alabaster of reredos, the rich color of the
spandrel mosaics, all are forgotten In
the vast prospect around. It is not only
an Imposing scenic spectacle but the
finest of living pictures, says a writer
In Lloyd's Weekly News.
It can be seen from three points. The
view from the ball (reached by 616
steps and capable of holding eight persons) Is disappointing. The chamber
gives a sense of confinement; the windows are dim and their outlook chiefly
on streaks of vapour. Hence the room
Is rarely visited, and then mainly from
curiosity. The proper "oolgn of vantage" from which to see London outside St. Paul's la the Golden Gallery
above the cupola. There is a climb of
500 steps to the gallery, delightfully refreshing In its breezy air after ascent;
while tho prospect Is wonderful.
At first the impression Is bewildering.
The eye only seems to rest on church
towers, a huge network of streets and
thoroughfares, chimneys sending forth
streams of simoke, and on the horizon
"haze clothed and steady hills." Soon
vision concentrates, and the London of
historic memories, commercial renown,
and swarming humanity reveals Itself.
The Toiwer and its bridge; "the forest
of masts below London bridge"; the
glittering river; Fleet street, the highway of journalism; Westminster Abbey; the Law Courts; Houses of Parliament; St. Jomes's Palace; the cupola
of the Reading-room of the British Museum; the Embankment, with its trees,
all distinctly meet the eye.
There Is a mysterious charm and
varied magic in the sights and sounds
of the huge scene beyond description.
Douglas Jerrold has sketched It very
prettily in his last play, A Heart of
Gold. Maude, the heroine, telling of tha
wonders of her visit to the top of St.
Paul's, says: "Along the streets little
specks moving sometimes in twos and
threes, and then altogether In one long
black gliding thread. And the beautiful
smoke In millions of silver fetters���it
came from the chimneys up amd up���
and then somehow joined In one large
shining sheot and went floating over
houses and church steeples with hundreds of golden weather cocks glittering through. Then there were far-off
hills with such a stir below, and they
looked so beautiful and still as though
they never heard and never cared for
the noise of London; a noise that when
we listened hummed from below for all
the world like a hundred humble bees,
all making honey and upon one bush."
On exceptionally clear days, like
several of those in the past August, and
some In September, the far-reaching
view has been most striking. Lelth
Hill, and the uplands about Northern
Middlesex, the lovely bits of landscape
in Surrey and Kent, and the country
���stretching to tlie Essex side of the
Thames, have been beheld In all their
tranquil beauty. But "places of nestling green" much nearer St. Paul's always gladden tlie ej-e under an ordinary
atmosphere. Spots like the Temple gardens, the trees in Pinsbury square, and
even the foliage In Wood street, Cheap-
side, are among the oases in the vast
metropolitan Sahara of factory blocks
and dwelling-houses.
Wren's epitaph in St. Paul's, "If you
would see his monument look around
you," has its echo beyond the ipreclhcts
of the cathedral. The sound of the
words lingers looking east, aurveying
the Monument and Greenwich Hospital,
both designed by the myriad-minded
architect. Nothing has been achieved
In modern architecture surpassing tho
beauty of many of Wren's campaniles,
not only from their variety, but elegance. These qualities of his art are
specially witnessed in St. Mary-le-Bow,
Cheapside, with Its dragon vane, and
In the plain, but impressive, spire of
St. Vedast, behind the postofflce.
���/Elephant*' Teeth.
Elephants, like human beings, have
two sets of teeth. The milk teeth, which
are smaller than the permanent molars,
fall out when the animals are about
fourteen years old. These baby teeth,
which are nevertheless enormous, are
occasionally picked up by circus men
among the fodder and preserved as curiosities.

in my back and right hip. I had to

There was a time when I never expected to stand erect again, but Dr.

made me the strong, hearty man you

the awful pain I suffered before I

became so stiff that in order to move
it all I had to use crutches. Finally
the doctors decided that I was incur-

uffer day and night, and then came

intil my crutches were thrown aside

began to go outdoors and soon was

Have  You   Insured Your Skin?
A North-West farmer died rocentlj
from blond poisoning following the
prick of a rusty nail. A tin tack on
which he trod, penetrated a Chicago
boy's toe, and he died later from
lock-jaw. Both tiiese deaths could
have been averted if a box of Zam-
Buk hail been handy. The air is full
of poisonous germs and microbes
which settle on wounds and���and
what!- if left to go their own wa\
they set up festering, suppuration and
frequently blood poison. If Zam-Buk
it applied these harmful germs are
killed and the wound is healed.
One of the greatest living chemists
has proved that Zam-Buk has more
power to kill liiinnfui microbes in
wounds than crude carbolic acid, and
does il painlessly. A little Zam-liuk
applet! to it cut, a sore, a burn or a
bruise which breaks the skin, prevents the wound from taking the
wrong  turn,  and  speedily  heals  it.
Mrs. Bright, of Johnstone, N. B.,
says: "I got my finger poisoned by
the prick from a needle, and as it got
very bad I applied some oldfashioned
remedies. It continued to get worse,
and I then tried Zam-Buk. This both
cleaned the wound and healed it and
soon all trace of the injury was gone."
In eases of cuts, burns, bruises nnd
other injuries Zam-Buk is tiie best
"insurance." It is equally good for
eczema, chronic ulceration, ringworm,
scaling sores, abscesses, inflamed
patches, running sores, bad leg, old
wounds, etc. Also for chapped hands.

Why They Should  Alivfiy- lie Cooked
In  UoliiuK Water.
Pare potatoes with a sharp vegetable
knife just as thin as possible, for that
part of the tuber lying close lo ihe skin
Is richest In mineral salts, and put each
potato as peeleil into n pan of cold water to prevent discoloration. Have
ready meanwhile a kettle of boiling
water and when the peeling process is
complete take the potatoes from the
colli water anil, covering them with
boiling sailed water, set them ou the
range, covered, to boll. Twenty uilu-
utes usually sutllce, but to test them
use a skewer or fork, and when they
can be pierced easily remove ut once
from lhe lire, pour off all lhe water
and set lliem on the back of the range,
uncovered, to steam dry, assisting that
proces'* occasionally by a slight shak-
lug of the kettle.
If one asks tlie reason why potatoes
should always lie cooked in boiling water try the following experiment for
proof: Take two cups, in each of which
has been put a teaspoonfnl of ordiuary
starch. I'our over one u quarter of a
cupful of boiling water and over the
other the same quantity of cold water
and observe the' result. The one over
which the boiling water was poured
stays in shape, a compact mass, while
the one with the cold water dissolves
into a soft paste. The potato is largely
composed of starch, and from this
trial any one may draw his own conclusions. If you wish a pulpy, watery
potato use cold water, but If n dry,
mealy, snowy ball that: would delight
the heart of Epicurus himself always
use boiling water.
Willie   Allium*"  Cus'l  Smell.
'Tine white animals," said a pet
stock dealer, "have no sense of smell.
Hence they are coutluunlly eating
things that disagree with them, and in
eight casus out of ten poison themselves and die. Pure white pigs should
never be allowed to run loose in the
fields and woods. Kor, without the
protection of a sense of smell, such
pigs, when they get out, ent all sorts
of poisonous roots and berries nnd die
off rapidly. "Iu Africa the white rhl-
uoceros poisons Itself by eating the
euphorbia, and pure white sheep are
difficult to rear because they ore continually munching shrubs and grasses
that don't agree, with them,"

Cement, concrete and especially "re-
enforced concrete" will, according to
lome nuthoritles, solve many of the
hard problems confronting the architects and builders of modem structures. Cement is known to have beeu
used by the Chaldeans, Egyptians,
Greeks and Romans. The most ancient
form of cemeut was simply burned
limestone, more or less pure, used very
much as ordinary lime is used nt the
present time. The Uoiunns were the
first to adulterate lime by adding certain clay soils and slate for the purpose
of making u cement of a hydraulic nature���that is, one which would set or
harden under water. Pliny, who lived
In the first century A. 1)., describes the
method of modifying ordinary burned
limestone nnd converting it Into a form
of hydraulic cement.
In ancient times it wns believed that
the best cement wns made from tbe
hardest rock, and this opinion wus uot
modified from the time of the Romans
down to the eighteenth century. However, John Smcnton, the man who built
the second Bddystone lighthouse, In
course of examining tlie various hydraulic cements for use in the foundation nnd masonry made the important
discovery that the Quality of hydraulic
cement depends upon the amount of
clay in the limestone. This Is conceded
to be the most important discovery in
the art in nearly twenty centuries.
On the isle of Portlund, in the south
of England, there are certain quarries
of limestone which have been worked
for many years, iu former limes producing building stone. In lBJSi an Jung*
lishniiin named Joseph Aspdln of
Leeds, pateutetl a process for mixing
nnd burning lime nnd clay. The product looked so much like tlie Portland
{limestone that he culled It "Portland
cement," from which the commonly
known name given to nearly all kluds
of hydraulic cement was derived.���Chicago News.

Most of the sulpuiir consumed in the

where are vast deposits at a depth of
from COO to 800 feet. As there Is a
layer of quicksand a hundred feet
thick above the sulphur, it was impossible until lately to get out paying
quantities. Now, however, It is secured by driving down two pipes. One
pipe carries a jet of steam, which, coming iu contact with the solid bed of
sulphur, melts It into a liquid. This is
then forced to the surface by air pressure through the other pipe.
