The Hon.- Joseph Martin1 is atill  trying t6 reform the - world. ,He  would abolish'',the House of'Lprils,  and if need be (elect a second  chamber by the popular vote' of  the people "the, same as any democratic .and , sane go^vennmenJ  should." * The'House of Lords may  riot, be all that'Ave wish, but tho  election of a(.second and, superior  chamber Avouldmean the.introduction of much politics into; our government. Not- even the-Senate oT-  Canada is elected by the popuiar  v*ote. Of course "Joe" might.wan":  the Senate abolished, but he is not  alone in that respect.  Tho popular 'A'o'ce of the people  in electing our,.law-makers .is certainly according to British and Can  adian constitution, but to have the  candid honest opinion of any body  of men on legislation passed by par  liamcnt, we do not believe it can  be -secured from a body elected by  the populate A'ote. To give aucn  thatbody,- we believe, must- be removed from' the day when they  must face the electorate. ���������  If Hon. Mr. Martin in his revising  ol the British-.constitution had! an  idea -to remove the House of Lords  and have a chamber above" the  House of CommonsCelected similar  to��������� our Canad an Senate there might  be something to his contention.' But  for? all 'parts.-of the governing machinery to be; elected by the popular 'vote of the people is the m-  troduotion of 'tootmuth pplitics'in-  to our go\rernment. Still thet would  be .in keeping with his ideas���������he  was; always filled-body and rfoul .  with drastic political ideas.'  ���������   It- seems  strange 'that  the Hon '  ��������� Jos:' Martin" showld ��������� make  his  annual ltripB to'.Canada, and take 'up-'  ���������on"himself'the: solemn 'diuty of ed-  ucating'rus:,Westerners iri .politico,.

Bull, the  chairman of the Grindell-Matthews  Wireless Telephone.Syndicate, told an  Interviewer that this would probably  be the price of the two necessary  small boxes, and it is expected that  before long the aerophone will be  in everyday use. "One of the largest  firms of financiers in England,"  said Sir William, "have taken  a great interest in the Invention. They allowed us to  use their strong-room for experiments. The room Is built of chilled  steel, and is, air-tight, so that our  operator could only, remain in it for  10 minutes. In that time he got connected with another operator on the  roof of the building. Experiments have  also ,been successfully carried out  and' I, myself, have in the early  stages of the invention spoken  'through' the walls of a suite of  rooms." The two boxes which complete the outfit are about nine cubic  Inches each, and are made of mahogany.    _   How are you fixed withypur supply of stationery for the Fall.  Business?

In   the  popular   mind ' Portugal' is  generally   associated  "with  wine   and  fruit as 'its -only industries* and 'pro-  duets.-'yet-there^are'.several important;  mining .concerns-which add materially  to the wealth of'the country. ��������� Fo'r its"  size' it'   is   one   of'the   most' highly  mineralised'.? countries-'in? the*''world;;J  but while in the time-of the Romans  it was the scene of "much"'mining an'd  metallurgical  activity,  in-these days  its resources'are-not developed'to the  extent that they-should'be.    .;  The great belt of copper-bearing  iron pyrites which springs from:' the  Sierra Morena in Spain passes  through' Algarve ;and 'Estremadura;in  Portugal, ��������� and is lost in the sea near  Lisbon.' All���������,through its course* it is  associated with -manganese. These  are the' only ��������� minerals- south of ' the  Tagus. The "Spanish"'end1 of the-belt  is much wider- than the part which  passes into, Portugal, and Ms worked  by many large companies, the most  important being'the Rib Tl'nto and the  Tharsis mines. The "'former is > the  largest mine of'any-kind in the world.  On the Portuguese, side the largest  mine is the San ' Domirigos, in tho'  extreme south; farther north the Al-  justrel mines, and nearer Lisbon the  Mina da Coveira. Besides these there  are several others of less importance.  This is' the copper district of the  country. * ��������� - ��������� --  ' In one of the Portuguese , mines  where the gossan attains a thickness -  of one hundred and thirty feet it is  treated with marked success for the  small .quantity of gold andr silver  which it contains.       ��������� "  It is a noteworthy fact that ,no  mine of any importance in either  Spain or Portugal has been discovered that has- not been worked 'by the  Romans during their occupation of  these countries.

The Cry of the "DeTil-BIrd.*  Of all the awe-inspiring- sounds  emited by wild "creatures none "is "to'  be compared to that, of the "devil-  bird" of Ceylon, whose cry has been  likened to the scream ��������� of a .human-  being undergoing the most frightful  torture.. Naturalists 'have- identified;  this bird with the brown , wood-owl  found in Hindustan. The'"devil-bird;"  or ulama, as the Cingalese call it,' is  an elusive. creature.' The natives of  Ceylon regard the cry .'of this bird  with superstitious horror, for, it 'is  "claimed, its scream 'heard at night  presages the mopt dire -misfortunes.  An official of the Cevlen civil service  has given some study to this curious  bird. "Its ordinary' note, he states, .'is  a magnificent clear, s^out like that  of a human being, heard at a great  distance, and producing a fine effect  in the silence of tho n'ght. 'But the  sounds that have earned for the bird  Its bad name, and which this officer  reports he heard to perfection but  once, are said to he well-nigh indescribable, the mc=t appalling that  "can be imagined, and scarcely to be  heard without a shudder. It has been  compared to the cr'e? -p. a boy in torture, whose screams a������e being stopped  by strangulation.  The Ivory Supply.    .

Stronger tli.m Dynamite  The recent death of the inventor of  the Japanese explosive, shimose powder, which played vn^h an important  part in the Russian war, adds interest  to the announc^p-ent made by.
