Irish,   German,   French,  English,   Italians,   Finns,   Russians,  Japanese,   Indians, while one solitary Turk brings up the rear .of  the  list.     The largest proportion  shown in the table is that of Americans   26.5 per cent.    Norwegians  and Danes, taken together, were 35  percent., while the Austrians and  Slavonians,   also   given   together,  were  24.5  per   cent.1"   The   total  number of men on the list is S24,  and the division of these among 17  nationalities   is quite a  sufficient  variety, one would think, to show  the cosmopolitan nature of our population    The only mystery is how  the Turk  should have found his  way to the coast of Alaska, and  what special work he is doing iu  the mines there.���Engineering aud  Mining Journal.  ���%   -.��!��� ~<  -"'  *^V-   t*'-J i �����'-*)%  I -  **&2XlB*& IKAILEOAII1AI  ���' HAD HIS TRIAL  ' "lETNGINEEB.

Tho King of Sidm,  tho fiftieth anniversary 'of whose  accession to    tho  ��� throne was recently     celebrated      at  Bangkok,  is  only sixty-five years   of  Ugo, Tor, he ascended  the throne      at  fifteen.    Miss Lconowen,  an    Anglish  'governess, whose pupil he was for six  years,  described him as an apt scholar,  handsome,  affectionate,  and generous,   with  lofty ideals.     Chulalong-  korn,   which" happens   to be  the  monarch's'name,  has verified that character by progressive rule.    He has given ' Siam  an  enlightened  government,  'and yet zealously guarded native cus-  IUTOIATI0_HEE   AEIS  WILL     SOON      REPLACE       THE  ���    MAGAZINE  GUNS.  Great    Improvements    Will     Soon  be Made in     Small  'Arms.  All armies are now at work trying  constantly to perfect the infantry  arm, and it hi probable that sooner  or later the automatic rifle will replace the mngn.'/.inc arm.  The adoption of protective armor  .shields by tho field artillery has led  to experiments for the purpose of  giving to the projectile.-; of the infantry arm a greater power of penetration.. To accomplish this it has  boon proposed to use in the infantry  bullet a central steel -core, or to  make the ogive (pointed end) of  steel, or finally to make tho entire  ball of steel. l��lTorts are also being  made to obtain a more powerful  powder, which will give a higher  muzzle velocity. None of these projected improvements, however, will  intorfero in any way with tho early  adoption of an automatic gun.  In view of these probable improvements in the infantry rifle, the question arises, will the uiadiiue gun any  longer bo needed when every man is  provided with^ an automatic gun  capable of a very high rate of ' fire  for at least some secands.  A small number of men armed with  automatic rifles can produce in a  given "time as-great a hail of' projectiles as a machine gun. IJut it is  not for this reason that the military  world is inclining to an automatic  infantry gun. In choosing a new  arm for tho infantry it is a mistake,  according to the best authorities, to  lay too much stress on ,  RAPIDITY OP  FIRE.

Tliis will increase .the  chances of hitting a comparatively  small or a fleeting target nt some  distance, becauso the soldier can fire  a scries of shots without lowering  his' piece 'or changing his sight.  It. is evident, therefore,' that along  with tho automatic infantry arm,  armies'Can still utilize machine guiis  for obtaining a continued rapid fire  of  long  duration.  But there is another* difference between the two arms, in that the automatic firearm of the infantry will  always be ��. liirht nifnir,-.while the  machine gun, because of its mechanism, accessories tripod, etc., is necessarily more er  loss heavy.  In the construct i��n of' the infantry  gun the first coridili^n to be fulfilled  is that of accuracy, m: 1 the ranges  to be considered are primarily those  at. which comparatively finall targets (skirmishers kneeling or  lying down, for example) may  be still so clearly , visible  as to be fired on with effect.  This arm is therefore intended, above  nil. for coma prati vol y short ranges.  THE MACHINE GUNS,  on tho other hand, are so constructed as to give a prolonged' rapid  fiw\ and tholr cono of projectiles is  sufficiently dense to admit of their  ell'cctive use at comparatively long  distances.    Accuracy Is  therefore  not  will    also  contribute  to  success     in  tho final assault.  The machine gun detachments five  to bo attached to the < infantry' in  future. The 'fire of machine gurw is  intended to contribute only Isidirmjl-'  ly to the result, tho lire at short  range by infantry being still the only  direct docUivc element in battle. The  main use of the machine guns will  be to permit the infantry 'of the attack to advance more rapidly to tho  principal firing position, and from  there to attempt to gaiii the superiority of fire. This appears to be  tho latest conclusion of the authorities  on,the subject.  THE  SNIFFER.  Grant.���"Do you -know anything  that's good for a cold?" ���  Grimes.���"Do ,1 know anything?

This does not exclude the use of the  machine gun at short distances, ��� if  tho circumstances requlio it, although in general the well aimed Jire  of infantry armed with an automatic  gun is  then more effective.

OR,   THE  WILL  HISSING  *T   CHAPTER VI J. -  The next few weeks left upon Jessie's  mind  a  lasting  impression"  of  lhilip, hollcw^-cyed and desperate,'  bitting before piles of papers and  books, and sometimes breaking off  to lean bade in his chair, push his  hands wildly through his hair until  it literally stood on end, and gaze  distractedly  beforo him.   ,  "Let me help you. I believe that 'I  could at least do those things as  wpl] as you," 'she said once; "you  aro not made for business." -  "You poor dear kitten," ho replied  with a tender smile, "I wonder what  you are made for, excopt to .bo  taken cate of."  Then he plunged into the papers  again, troubled not so much by his  supposed incapacity for business,' as  by tho unpleasing revelations tho  papers yielded, and'wondering ' what  demon had tempted Mr. Meade' to  speculate  so  madly.       * .   ,  Uy the time ho rejoined his regiment his labors wcic so far rewnrd-  ��� ed that ho knew how Mr. Meade's  affairs sttod, and found that when  all was arranged and the mill sold,  ' they might, still .hope to rescue a  small lesiduum for Jessie, as they  eventually   did. r a  But those things weie not so quickly effected, and when ho bid Jcssio  good-by it was with tho assurance  that he should constantly be running  down to Cleovo to consult with Mr.  Checscmnn  and  transact business.  As he left Cleovo farther and farther behind a great weight rolled from  .Philip's  breast.   The fewTveeks that  had passed since that night of music  and mii th when he had been so rudely  awakened  to  the homely tragedy  of life,  had  been  too full of sorrow  and care;  his youth rebelled against  them.,.   When he'drove  toward   .the  barracks ( and    the    familiar cheei ful  notes of a bugle rang out upon   the  clear air, all the suflering and     care  and death  of the last weeks     faded  away like a bad dream." How cheery  the smart step of a fuing-paity    returning to barracks sounded.      How  pleasant it was to ^sce the    sentries  pacing upland, down, how gay were  'the'led  coated  soldiers ^strolling  to  and    from      the   barracks in thicker  -clusters near the gates;-thinner farther oil, like bees- about the entrance  "Of a hive.  A few days later ho was searching  for-soraething he mislaid, rummaging  among clothes and making confusion  worse confounded, after 'the petulant  fashion of male creatuies under  small discomforts, .when he took the  uniform worn at tlie ball and dashed  it angiily on the floor. As it fell a  Email hard substance dropped from a  *���  pocket  and rolled  into  a     patch    of  sunlight     with a ruddy  scintillation  from the sparkling facets of a jewel.  He ���  looked'.blankly at the glowing  stone for a second,   its rosy hue reflected  in    his face,   and then picked  it up remembering how it had flashed-at the-white throat of his pretty  partner Miss Maynnrd.   It was   then  set in a locket;   it had fallen     from  its setting during the dance, ,and at  her request ho had searched for   and  found  it and put in 'his pocket    for  safety. He did not know much about  jewels,   but this one stiuck  him    as  being     largo    for    a ruby, and Miss  Maynard   had   expressed   some   -'concern  about it.      Tho  thing  was 'vexatious;   tho Maynards had   sailed  for  India,   he  had    no  means   of finding  their  address.       By  this  time     they  wore   probably   lounding   the Cape,  nnd by this time the intimate   social  relations on shipboard had no doubt  done their work and Miss Ada    had  doubtless, promised  her butterfly    affections'to,   some  fellow-passenger���  some, long-legged idiot  with   a  sabro  clanlcing at his1 heels, Philip'reflected.  Uc could  do nothing but place     the  stone   in   safety-'and  seize  tho    first  opportunity   of   restoring  it  to"    its  owner.      It lay rn the palm rof    his  hand,  tho brilliance flashing from its  deep ciimson heart, like a live thing.  Dark     rose    red   like   joy and lovo,  sparkling  with the-sparkle  of    iwine  and  mirth,   the shining 'gem    seemed  to disclose a new world to him. "'His  hand     thrilled  so  with vague  desire  that   the    jewel,   lightly and  imperceptibly  quivciing,   shook  back     the  sun rays in a thousand sharp, bright  flashes.      Some  dim< (recollections   of  magic in jcwels,_ of fascination exercised upon men and women, by those  fiery-hearted    things      came   to him;  was there'not enchantment in   this ?  Though he did not know it,     blood  had been shed for that stone's sake,  it had.flashed from the dim     shrine  of     an   'Indian    Temple upon dusky  worshippers     and     strange   heathen  rites,  had glowed in the turban     of  an     Indian -.prince, had been stolen,  swallowed, bought and sold, sot   and  reset, given in love, given in tribute  before it came to deck the throat of  a thoughtless gill, who lost it.  He held it longTn his open palm,  absorbed in. a kind of dream, then'ho  eloped his fingers over the red rad-,  iance arid shut it away, in a dark  safe place.  Jessie remained at the mill,' clinging to the old empty nest, poor forlorn'bird tfhat she was. Bills -announcing the -sale of the furniture  were pasted on the garden wall and  the mill-front, but while the chairs  and tables stiil lemained, Jessie  begged4r.ot to.be moved.  '  It was now eaily April, tho almond  tree by the gate spread  a mosst   of  pink  blossoms against the palc^'bluc  sky, ,   violets >  and     hyacinths - were  sweet "In    the borde s,   the flowering  currant made a pungent fragrance in  the sunshine and attracted  tho   Dees  from the hrves at the top of the gai-  den���even the bees were to  be sold.  Jessie    strolled   over the   little   domain of which she had  all' her     life  been queen with an overflowing heart  bidding a mute farewell  to her    lifelong fiiends, animate and inanimate.  Tho garden,  the arbor,  in which her  father had smoked on ,summer evenings,   the  strawbciry-bcds,   tho    garden-plots,  she  nnd   Phi ip  had  called  their own, the    little house ho    had  built in the wood-yard, Ihe swing in  the orchard,  tho flowers hor    mother  had cultivated and loyed, tho pigeons  and poultry, the row of bee-hives, all  were  beloved,   all  twined  with     lifelong   ' associations-   they  were    part  of heiself,  without them sho    would  not longer- be Jessie.     She looked in  at the , grated     dairy   window    and  pictured her mother busy among the  pans of thick creamed milk,  or turning and working great golden masses  of butter   with   va quick, deft, hand;  she would never see her -any    more;  a   stranger   would    stand  there  and  dosecrato - the place     with   an alien  touch.  ,' ��� Jessie's     throat    .swelled  to  be comforted  and companioned  a  little.   ,' ,  "I can't give up this yer dresser)  Miss Jessie," Sarah saiti, "tho years  and years I've a scoured en kop en  white.- 1 be gwino to bid for he.  You,go on in arid hev tea now, I've  a made ye some scones, and there's  a letter from Master Philip."  Jessie went into the parlor with  something moie of a dance in her  stop than it had had for a long time,  and eagerly opened Philip's  letter.  Poor Jessie I the Jotter was dropped on the-tabic, the golden head  was upon it, and she was crying bitterly. Philip was ordered' to India I -  He had kept it from her as long as  he could, but he was coming, down  on the nr.orrow, and could not bear  the telling by word of mouth, ��� so  broke it in the letter. He would remain in England as long as possible,  not sailing in the troopship, but  starting later, taking the short  overland route and joining his regiment on its arrival  at Calcutta.  ITc arrived in Cleevc on ,the day  tho mill was given over to flic auctioneer, and saw Jessie in Miss Blushford's drawing room, feeling half  guilty at leaving her.  "How well you are looking, child,"  lie said .with forced gaycty; "why, I  dp believe you are grown." 1  He held her at arm's length, as if  to got a bettor view of her, but his  glance travelled no higher than her  shoulders and she saw that there  was a faint quiver on his lip.  "I am grown," she replied, "I  have grown very fast this - spring,"  Jessio's lip quivered too; neither of  them' knew what to "say, _the subject  of fhe parting was too painful, they  sat sido by side on Miss Blushford's  iVmir.  preserve the stars from  "Thou   dost  wrong,  And      the     ..mo��;t    ancient -    lii>nvi>ns  through thee arc "fresh and strong."  he said to himself,  and his face was  which she would never moro see   her  father  leaning,   as  she half expected  to see him lean now. * Past the mill,  whence the soothing homolike throb,  throb,  still issued,     though ho    was  not there to  set the familiar    pulse  going, she strolled into the meadow,  full  ^now     of     young innocent-faced  daisies,      where     the   stately willow  dropped leafless above the clear water'and the white swan glided   over  it, her puie plumage dazzling in the  spring     sunbeams.    ' How t often    she  had played or dreamed there, .  careless and-happy in the willow's shade,  watching    the '-water striving    with  perpetual     baffling,    to     climb    the  wheel's < always turning stair,  wasting and scattering    itself in crystal  spray -in  its fruitless  endeavor.    She  used to' be sorry for the 'baffled water    till Philip   laughed at her   rand  showed her how    tho    endeavor   was  not indeed "fruitless, but set all ' the  wheels and cogs going to gi ind   the  corn     into    meal     for    men's 'food.  Otheis    .would    watch'*   the turning  wheel,  and pity the    water's    weary  baffling, .and she would be away and  lonely  among  strangers;- but * Philip  dear Philip,   was left���she was     not  all desolate.   Then    the    singing    of  birds fell-pleasantly on her ears, 'and  she went back to  the    house, think-  incthat DcrhnDs it was well  alio was  to leave the old home, after all.  She  went in 'through the kitchen,    where  she sat awhile to talk to Sarah and  ... , ample  old-fashioned  sofa" which was  chokingly and she turned away,'pass-   covered with needle-work, from   past  ing tho mill,  over the half-door     of   and present pupils,  and looked   sorrowfully   at tho    well-saved     carpet  for some minutes.  "Jessie," said Philip at last, "it  breaks my heart to think of leaving  you just now, but���I will not go if  you tell me to stay."  "But how can you help1 it?"    she  asked,   surprised.  ' "I can sell out," he replied.  "But if you sold out. Philip, what  could  you > do?"   Jessie  asiked,   sim-  piy-        , ,    < s *  ."Heaven knows. I might learn  farming or some trade,", he answered; "anything would be better than  to leave you if you tfelt it would bo  too lonely."  "You must not sell out," sihe said-  gently. "You forget that you are  going-.to, be a great soldier. Why,  you always hoped> for India,, Phil."  ."Yes," he tieplied,.still looking at  the neat carpet, so 'seldom profaned  by tho steps of men, "if only I could  be sure you were happy here, that  no harm would come to'you." Ho  paused and 'sighed, -his heart was  riven asunder by the two duties, one  calling'him abroad, one bidding him  stay "with Jessie. While away from  hor it had seemed comparatively  easy to leave her, but now, in her  pref-ente and touched by the added  sorrow ho felt rather than saw in  tho child's .thin face, it seemed impossible.

I    While  open   ditches  for  land   drain-  ; age may bo necessary and under ccr-  > tain conditions "the only way;" they  , must lie considered as decidedly     objectionable   where   tiles ,can  be   used.  |,Thc open dilch obstructs tho   various  ' forms of tillage  and  all  farm  opera-  l.tions. - Its first cost is expensive   as  |. compared with tlie tile because much  1 moro  labor must  be expenued in  the  j) digging of an ,open  ditch.    Jt is  lin-"  j,b]e to bo partially filled  in  by      the  [tramping of stock,      if the land      is  |: pastured,  by tho action  of frost  and  (the growth of Weeds, so that its usc-  I, fulness   will   be-impaired.     An      obstructed channel for     the free      pas-  ; sago of water  is a first essential    in  ! farm 'drainage  and  tliis   can  only be  ' Becurca as a permanent  improvement  |,in the  covered  tile  drain.  ���    So while other materials may servo  a temporary     purpose      in drainage,  'tiles are so much superior in point of  cost when  durability and results  are  'measured;  as to hardly admit of demoting any space to the discussion of  i other methods. '  ]    The problem of farm drainage is to  lower the water table  (by which  we  |,'mean   the   body      of   stagnant  water'  ; found  in   all   soils   at  a  greater       or  JiJess  distance  from tho  surface),      so  lithat  it'will  not  interfere  with  the ,  Lgrowth.    of  crops.     Proper drainage   Williams'  Pink Tills  ] leaves    the     particles cf soil full  of   that you got  the genuine .with  ���moisture but tho spaces between, tho  .particles      are  free and open for  the  ] admission of air.  The earlier advocates of tile drarn-  I ago favored drains four or five feet  deep. 'It is a well established fact  that the deeper tho drain the farther  it will drain the water, , so at     first  | sight it  would  seem economical     -to  DRAIN DEEP.  > i * *.  When, however,  we stop  to consid-  I er, the extra cost of- digging the deep  ditch we shall see that it is the most  costly'.    It often  costs as  much      to  dig the jlast foot in a ditch four feet  KEDICINE FOB, MEN-.      .  Something That Will Banish Worries and Brace up the System.  Has it ever occurred to you that  you need a medicine as Men���not as  old men or young men, but as men ?  Are you never conscious that the  special wear and tear of life which  men sustain need repair ? Worry  weais a man out quicker than work,  but woi ry is not an accident, it is a  symptom���a symptom of nervous exhaustion. , Other symptoms are nervous headache; * morning laziness,  that makes it difficult to get out of  bed; a weak" feeling in the back; indigestion; brcathlessness after slight  exertion; ' irritable temper���perhaps  some nerve pain as neuralgia, sciatica or inripient paralysis. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, as a medicine for  men, act directly upon the source of  discomfort. They re-tore -manly vigor and energy, improve the appetite  and tone up the nerves and the whole  system; Mr.   Neil   H.   McDonald,  Estmere, N.B., ,is one of the ' many  men who has proved tho value of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. He say3 :  "I am glad to be able to say that I  have found Dr. .Williams' Pink fills  all;that is claimed for them, rl was  completely run down; my appetite  was poor, and I suffered much from  severe headaches. Doctors medicine  did not gi\e mo the needed relief, so  I decided to'try,Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. I used only a few boxes when  my former health returned, and now  lfecl like a new man."  Weak, nervous, broken down men���  and women, too���will fmd/ppw health  and  happiness in a fair use' of    Dr.  But be     suro  the  full name "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  for Pale People'' printed on the  wrapper around every box.

HOW TO MIX  CEMENT.   '  Cement is coming generally into  use as a substitute for lumber in  the building of > floors and the-erection of silos' and "other 'farm buildings. The value of the cement structure will depend to a large extent up- |  on the proportions in which to mix. '  cement, sand and' , gravel. The  amount of cement to-use.will depend  upon the character of the gravel and  sand, and therefore, it is difficult to  lay down any hard andJast rule that  will exactly serve in all cases. The  following is a test or method recommended by tho United States Government for ascertaining tho right proportions to use and may be found  helpful to those erecting cement  structures:  Take of gravel a certain measure  and shako it down to compact it;  strike off' the top with' a straight  edge; then measure water and pour  into gravel until all voids aro filled.  The water used will show the  amount of tho mixture of'cement and  sand that will be required to make a  proper  concrete.  "Repeat the operation, using sand  instead of gravel, and the. amount of  water absorbed by the sand will  show the amount of cement to add to  the, sand. .i.But H must be borne in  mind that the cement and sand mixed with water will not,fill the same,  amount of space as before putting together arid-adding the.water. That  is, one cubic foot of cement and.two  cubic feet of sand will not, when  mixed with water, make three cubic  feet of mortar.  deep as rt did  to dig the first three,   amount of fall,'or six inches  in one  Of.cour.se in any system of drainage   hundred feet, is quite sufficient if tho  there will bo likoly to bo places where   execution of the work is carefully -at-  the  ditch must   be  deep  in  order     to | tended to.  Jget the proper fall;  but wo think the  Ibest authorities do not advocate placing the average tile drain more than  J two and a half     to  three  feet deep.  iMuck lands, that would bo likely    to  Isettle    a good     deal "after     draining  jwould'be an exception.  The size of tiles so that th'ey may,  Ihdvc ^sufficient cap'acity to carry off  1 the water quickly should-be carefully  [considered. The rule is that the' capacity of tiles is to each other as  Itho squares of their diameters.   That  The distance apart of the tile drains  will depend on the kind of soil and  the depth of the drains. .On heavy  clays tho distance must be less to secure good drainage than on soils of  loamy or gravelly character. No'fixed  rules can be 'given as' to distance,  that.will, always be safe to follow,  as soils vary greatly, in texture" and  capacity to retain moisture.  As a.rule, "it is wisc^'to employ a  skilled man to lay out and level tho  drains.    This'work must be done well  .  .  WATERING  ANIMALS.  There should bo  a proscribed     system  for  tho  regular "watering  of     all  animals   on 'the ��� farm.     The  belief  is  more common than it should be that  water* at long intervals is not    only  sufficient,  but that     it is' the      best  way   of   treating   cattle.     Of   course,  this   is      a  mistake,   and   one      that  ought  to      be apparent  to all      who  give the" matter any thought.   In tho  first place, a"-thirsty state is an    uncomfortable state for tho animal    to  be in, and-from motives of humanity  it should be relieved.    It is a condition  directly opposed  to good  digestion.   ,  ��� When  thirst  is  allayed   only  when  it  has arrived,at  a stage  '  of  acute  suffering,  an overdose  of    water is  taken,  arrd     that  causes      as  much  injury to  the  digestive  organs  as the thirsty condition which it supercedes.     Cattle should, when on dry  food, get w.uter.  34TH ANNUAL REPORT  Presented to the Annual Meeting of Policyholders.  Thursday, March 3, I904.

Their sayings cannot be  compared in literary merit with the  beautiful proverbs of-tho Spaniards,  but they are filled with as deep philosophy, arid, added to tliis, there appears therein a Uucn sense of humor  something quite ubseiit jn the lingo  of tlie American darkles.  Out of tho mixture of philosophy  and humor have como many' quaint  sayings which are us familiar in .Turn.ilea ns our own. Some of them  are diliorently worded versions of familiar pivHi-rhs; stiil others express  most aptly that wliich.wo have often  thought iir. many words, but which  they have condensed.

DEADLIEST POISON.  Three Grains Are Said to be Sufficient to Kill Thousands.  Prussioxacid has long been supposed to bo the most deadly poison, but  now Mr Lascellcs ''Scott, of Little  llfoid, England, makes a staithng  .statement He asscits that the substance,, known to scientists as dimethyl aisinc cyanide, oi moio  shortly, cyanide of cacodyl, is hundreds, even thousands, of times moro  poisonous than pure pru&sic acid  As he puts it "A moie whiff of  this deadly poison would kill a laige  loomrul ot people, and the vapor of  thice grains diffused into the air af  the Druij- thoatio would suffice to  liisuio that not one of the audience  or artists ot the vast theatic would  leave it alive."  i Fortunately for mankind, this poi-'  son is so, deadly that rt is exceedingly dango ous to handle, and the  cnminal who attempts 1o use it  would in all probabilty "kill himself  H is a while powdei, which melts  at .'JO degiecs When exposed to the  airfcit gives off aj slight vapoi, to  inhale which is death  "I knowing its propci ties, took  cveiy precaution, and made it m the  open air," says Mi Lascellcs Scott  "Yet, in spite of my caie���and I  have been accustomed to dealing  with such things all my life���some  fumes must have escaped, for 1 was  ill foi a week after that experiment "       >  A well known analytical chemist  when questioned on the sulnoct was  mclired to throw doubts on Mr.  Lascellcs Scott's statements  "Wc      know  this substance We  know it is a powerful poison," he  said, "but_ E do not think theio is  any known substance af which thice  giruns would kill three thousand people "  But Mi.
