Seen by a  ttpreseuiative of the Nelson Daily News  " M r. OsTSn������.gb "tated:  i.   r "The district "surrounding the Bay-.  1 onne mine is fully equal^ iri'my opinion,  ~ to the now famons Sheep creek country  " adjoining it.    In  my estimation the  { Bayoane mine is one of the finest prop-  ���������f-erliaiin the -world    One lead, exposed  - sercss'the greater part of" three "claims.  is fully 2,500 feet ih length1 and "fronx 5  _to 18 feet width.

There are, also two  i - j  other leads opened up on this property,  ���������with surface outs, and the mine is only  ���������waiting the "building of a road, so that  ���������machinery can be brought in. to become  one of the largest shipping properties in  tho country.  "The Eoho, another group which I  examined during my trip, lies slightly  to the south and adjoining the Bayonne.  Here three leads are being developed  ���������with surface cuts and the indications are  that the ore shoots will be ,very large.  These three leads have been traced  across the Echo;- Ontario and Portland  claims of the group, and a tunnel is being started on the largest of tho three.  ���������whioh will prove the ore at depth.  '���������Among the other properties  visited were the Sunset arid;Jnok Pot  groups and several others in the 'near  vicinity, all of whioh havo good surface  -showings of free gold ore. A great many  Noleon people are interested in claims in  the district, nnd on Sunday afternoon  there were vo less than 17 "Nelson men  waiting at the Bayonne camp for the  might start work on their properties.  This Bayonne country is not difficult  of access, being less thad seven hours'  journey by trail from the Queen mine  and Sheep creek or up Summit creek  from Kootenay lake.

Of these 75 signed  the roll of the Creston Conservative  Association, and the balance were either  affiliated or prospective msmber-3. The  business of the meeting was to elect  officers for the ensuing year, and also  continue the organizing campaign that  has been so successful the past year.  After Mr. R. Long had opened with  some opportune remarks, the election of  officers was proceeded with, Mr. G.  Benny officiating ss chairmaa for the  remaindejr* ,^of the evening. ' For the  position'of fidfif president the names of  J. H. Schofield, M.P.P..E. Mallandaine,  J$. Long and J. J. Atherton were submitted, but the three last named declined the honor in favor of the popular  member for the Ymir riding.  The election of Mr. R.

It was a splendid rally, ably conducted and impressive; impressive because  the large majority of tho audience w������re  new settlers who are imbued with the  possibilities of the district, and enthusiasts over the good work of the sitting  member.

New Settlers Making Good  The coming of Mr. H. A. Mitchell to  the Creston district has been the means  of opening up a large streioh of unimproved land. Mr. Mitchell, prior to  locating near Erickson in the early  spring, waB a farmer and stock raiser  at Red Deer, Alta. Having made up  his mind to quit the wheat growing  black loam ia favor of our fruit-growing  alluvial, he brought along -his live stock  and straightaway commenced olearing  twenty acres of his land and erecting a  substantial two-storey dwelling. To-day  his ranch is a picture. Neatly fenced  and with several acres under oultivation  the land is a striking contrast to what  it presented a few months ago. AS&.  Mitchell's young orchard should never  be passed up by/those who contemplate  making a home for themselves at Ores-  ton and embarking in the most fascinating of all the agricultural pursuits. It  is an example of what may be accomplished by energy in a few short months.  Through Mr. S&tcheli's boostings two  families have arrived from Red Deer  and greatly improved gome land. Theaa  are Mr. and Mrs. Brownrigg and family  r-ind Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Martin and  family.  Warren Spence, of Kingsgate, and his  brother Lewis have also purchased ten  acres each and will shortly beigin clearing.  CELEBRATION  ORESTON BASEBALL CLUB TAKES  HATTSRS IN HAND FOB  LABOR DAY  OPEN-AIR PUBLIC  MEETING   IS  CALLED S"OR TUESDAY ������IGHT  ON ORESTON HOTEL LAWi?  j  There is a splendid feeling prevailing  tuat oreston snouid celebrate oa LsuSt  Day. and the baseball club are taking  the initiative in the matter. TMfi was  decided at the cl-ab saeetfsg os tfe-5 Ulti*.  inst.,/ and so as to give all citizens and  ranchers an opportunity to discuss the  matter,'an open air public meeting has.  been called for Tuesday evening next at  Government Mosquito "Dope*  Many people will persist in the conviction that preparations for driving  away mosquitoes are in the same class  forever  with  dandelion killers.  ' But  .MfiVS  kindly offered their !������w*s fo* tha occasion.  Oreston has hitherto held ita annnul  celebrations oa Dominion Day, but it  was found vary inconvenient by many  ot our ranchers owing to it being in the  height of the strawberry season, and  thus it was dropped this year. The  change of date, however, has one decided advantage, for in September tha  water is off the Flats and tho mosquitos  are out of busines*!.  It is said that Oranbrook will not celebrate on Labor Day, and this would be  a good opportunity to arrange for a  special train to bring along a crowd  from Oranbrook and Moyie.    The Ores-  each camping season brings saew recipe ton ball team will try t������ srrssge a gssie  that has neve? been know*a to fail.  The United States department of agriculture comes to the aid of the drug  business this summer with the claim  that one ounce of oil of oedar, two ounces of oil of oitrcneila and two ounces of  i  spirits of camphor make the best combination. A few drops of this mixture  on a cloth at the head of the bed is warranted to keep the vicious insects away  m.       *.,   ..������������������_���������,   M-  1UJ.  IIIO Ulgli.il.  I' '  Some of the mosquito "dopes" are  fully as offensive to the olfactory nerveB  of human beings as to those of the insects themselves, and tho user is led, to  wonder whether an occasional bite is not  preferable to a continuous stench. The  government declares that there is  nothing disagroeablo about the odor of  its new remedy.  Now if the mosquito experts oould  only disoover some means of -stopping  the buzzing by which the inseots murder  sleep and get their revenge, another  great favor would bo done for suffering  humanity.

Grease on Carpets.���������An excellent  paste for getting grease from caspets  is made by mixing Fuller's earth with  ammonia and water. ���������  Apply the mixture thick; let it remain  over night, then remove with a stiff  brash. The ammonia may be omitted if  the colors in the carpet are delicate. After the gr-eets is cut the colors may be  freshened by sweeping with moist salt.  To Remove Gum���������To remove gum  fro many fabric soak in kerosene and it  will soften so it can easily be removed.  In; Window Washing.���������Add a little  kerosene to a basin of soft water to  "sash your windows and mirrors; it will  clean them blighter and much faster  than anything you can use.  For Oiled Woodwork.���������Add kerosene  to a pail of soft water when washing oil-  ������rf woodwork and floors. Be sure and  polish with dry cloth and you will be  ���������������������u*y repaid  Roach Remedv.���������A few drops of turpentine sprinkled around where roaches  gather will exterminate them  at once.

To Imitate Hardwood Floors.���������First  scrub clean,; and when perfectly dry  give two coats of yellow paint or flat  ��������� g-Toxicd-work, as: it is called, Then draw  a heavy line down the centre of each  board with a real soft pencil.  Now, put.on two coats of varnish, and  ���������when all is finished it will iook like the  small hardwood boards. We have tried  it on some old. floors -with excellent results.  Cleaning Gilt Frames.���������When gilt  frames   of   pictures  or   looking   glasses  Ham is thin for two reasons: First, because the hog was hot iii prime condition to assimilate its; food,  or, second,  because it did not get sufficient fowl for  its proper ������������������'nourishment.''.*' A fat ham is  sweet, wholesome and juicy always,    if  properly cured ;   Pale pink" hams have  been too long inypiekle, held there   for  speculative purposes. A Select your boiling ham with''due-.regard to'y-a rich color  as  well as chuhkin-ess.    The  very  best  stc butchered with a short butt end and  u.short shank, whilieA the fact is beveled  back, affording the least possible waste.  The finest bacon is  squared oft" well  at both ends so;tlui-t the consumer has  no waste to begin with, and the last or  flank end is devoid of the skin, fat and  bone finish.    When  purchasing either  ham or bacon it pays to select a first-  clasij quality in the whole piece and use  as required for briMikfast, lunch, supper  or-dinner. --'.With' the ham, one of eight,  or. ten or even twelve pounds is still e*o-  joying its  first youth and so will    be  tender.    The thick end may be used for  boikd. dinner, after which from time to  time slice after slice    may    be utilized  until only the shank remains for another  boiled- dinner.  Again, a young ham may be toiled entire, cooled, in the wat**r and: rCe^t- cool  to bo priced as refjuired. Old fashioned  people prefer the home-boiled ham., with  the bone intact, but the modern housekeeper insists upon the toneless, cold-  boiled slice by her butcheruuui, quite  overlooking the fact that the generous  size of his cold boiled ham argues a 20  to 2*2 pound joint of a hog at least two  years or more of age. Surely we> have  ail-, heard of the sweetness which lurks  lathe ham bone.  y Chicken Pie���������Boil a chicken until it  fahs from the hones, then put ihAa deep  pan. .Makfc a sauce of three tablespoon-  fulsvof baking; powder, two teaspoonfuls  of shortening, one egg, beaten light, and  a cup of milk., Mix well, and with a  spoon spread it oyer the top of the con- j  tents of the pan.

Manifestly this sentence is not sufficient to prove that Joan of Arc was  one of Ferrana s two children, but  Signor Scarlatti supplies'" what is lacking. AHe explains that Ferrante settled at Domremy with his wife Isa-  beiie and tliat as in his family coat  of arms there was an arch, '.'arco'- in  Italian, hence Joan was calledAD'-  Arci while the name Romee was  - merely a nickname as it were, meaning that the family Was exiled and  hence pilgrims.  Signor,Scarlatti moreover quotes the  following verses from an old French  poem to prove that the Maid of Orleans was looked on as an Italian in  France in the seventeenth century:  O  gentile nona in, "one  de Muese  le  bord  Vit  nnitro  de  Ferrant    ton   illustre  nobless   *.**..'  Que le sang de Ghisilier   *   *   *  Some years ago n. fresco representing a kneeling girl clad in armor,  over which she wore a pilgrim's hood,  and bearing a standard with the red  cross of Bologna, was discovered in  the Church of St. Petronius. The  figure lias been identified as Joan'ot  Arc and it was painted in 1-145. This  discovery completes tho evidence that  Joan of Arc was of Italian origin.  At every wedding thoro is always  someone to sny, "Slio is entirely too  good for him." ,  .������',:'        THE  GRACE  OF  GOD.  An anecdote, illusifrative of good humor; is told of one of the Selkirk minis-.  ters.   Mr. Law was a well known wag,  though an excellent man and diligent  pastor.   There was a sort of infidel and*  scoffing character in the town where he  lived, .commonly trailed "JoiiJc Hammoii."  "Jock had a nickname    for   Mr. Law;  which, though prof ane, had reference, to  the well known evangelical character of  ,his  ministry.    "There's  "the    j"pfa<ce ���������������/  God,'" he would say, as he saw the good  man passing by;, and he usually talked  of him tinder that designation.    It so  happened that Mr. Iiaw had on oho occasion consented to take' the chair at  some public meeting., The hour of meet-*  iag was past, the place of meeting was  filled, but no Mr. .Law appeared. Symptoms  of  impatience  were    manifested',,  when a voice was heard from one corner  of the hall, 'Tdy freens. there'll be, no  'grace o' God' here the itjelit."   Just at  this moment *the door opened, and Mr.  Law. appeared, casting, as lie entered, a  rather knowing look upon*"Jock Ham-  mon" as ho ejaculated these words. On  taking the chair ho apologized for bohig  so late,   "I had," ho said, "to go into  the country to preside at tho examination of a school, and really tho young  folks conducted themselves so well that  I could scarce get away from them. If  you please, I will just give you n specimen of, tho examination.   I called up an  intelligent'''looking girl, hud asked hor  if over sho  hud  hoard of anyone'who  had erected a gallows for another, and  who had been hanged on it 'himself.  "Yes,' replied the girl, "it was Hama'n.'  With that, up started another little gh*l,  aiiid she said, 'Eh, minister, that's . no  true! Hammon's no' banged yet; for I  saw him at the public house door this  forenoon,' and he was; swearing like, u  trooper/" (Upon this there .'was'-a considerable tittering among the audience,  and eyes were directed to -the/corner  where Jock was sitting.) " *Yoii are :  both, quite right, my little dears>'" said  Mr::"Law, casting a sort of y'glaiket"  look towards the, first girl;! "your Ha-,/  man was really 'hanged, as he deserved A  to be;'*' and, turning towards the other,  "your Hammon, my lambie, is no'/haiig- A  ed yet, by the grace 0'. God."'' The'effect of this upon the hearers was electric, and, amid roars of laughter, Jock  rushed out' ofJ the meeting, and, for a  -timei at least, he ceased to make the  secession minister the object of his  jokes.   ���������***>-������������������������ -V       ;  Gloves for.

There is, of course,, a great difference between such a phenomenal fee  as this and the high fees of other performers. Caruso comes next with $2,-  oOO each time he sings. Melba's fee is  . commonly  $1,750  an evening, which is*  closely appro-.-jhed by the new star,  Tetrazzini.,  Amongst musicians Paderewski easily  takes the lead.. Compare his fee ' of  $2,500 to the modest $25 which easily  tempted Mozart! Kubelik receives $900  for playing a couple of pieces on his  violin.  But it is in the domain of vaudeville  ���������of the music hall���������that prices and  prizes have advanced so enormously.  Grimaldi was the most succssful droll  of his day���������a century ago���������and he  would have been quite content to have  received a tithe of that paid to the  successful London comedian of, 1909.  It seems almost increditable that any  manager could venture to na*** anv single performer $4,000 a week and not go  into bankruptcy. Yet such is the princely salary received by Mr. Harry Lauder.  It is more than twice what the late  Dan Leno.ever earned and his salary  was accounted prodigious. Miss Marie  Lloyd delights her audiences to the tune  ,pf $1,200 a week; while Miss Loftus has  for a period commanded even "more.  Of the popularity of "Little Tich"���������a  x.ondon favorite���������Ins salary of $2,500 a  week is eloquent; while Miss Maud Allan's success as a dancer probably made  her the best paid exponent of the Terp-  sichorean art since, the world (at least  xhe world of the theatre) began.  An efficient actor received in 1635 as  large a regular salary as $000, of which  sum $7,200 is the modern equivalent.  The lowest known valuation set an actor's wages at 75 cents a day, or in modern- money about $1,800 a year. Shakespeare's emoluments as.an actor before  1509 are not likely to have fallen below  $4,000 in our money; while the remun-  ing, added some $600.  Actresses did not appear until about  1G62, female parts being previously taken by boys. Amongst the very earliest  were Mistress Nell Gwyn, of the King's  playhouse, and Mistress Knip. Both  from having been "orange giris," earning  a precarious existence about the theatre, were raised to the affluence of $5  a performance--about $20 in present  value.  By the time we reach David Garrick,  the emoluments received by the successful actor had steadily increased.  Garrick himself could command $250 a.  week before he went into manageeinrit,  besides a benefit which would bring in  virtually all that the house was worth  -from $2,000 to  $3,500 for  the night,  Aitcr he went  to   management  his  earnings were enormous, and he died  leaving, at a low computation, over  $500,000.  Miss Favren's engagement cost A the  management at the height of her career.  $250 a week, which was what Mrs. ^Sid-  dons also consented to receive from Cov-  ent Garden Theatre at one period of  her fame. But this was far below what  she could and did defriarid elsewhere and  in, the Provinces; and in her biography;  we read that /on tour $150 nightly was  the sum cheerfully paid for the great  actress' services. It must be remembered that the value of money in the days  of the three players just mentioned  was double what it is at present, that  is, $250 then corresponded to $500 how.  Great as the sum y then seemed, it  soon became common, $250 a night being paid to Kean, Macready, and even  Fechter; but it is, of course, dwarfed  into insignificance by the emoluments  received from the American public by  such artistes as Bernhardt, Coquelin^ajidi  Irving. Bernhardt was paid $1,000 a  night, which seems to have struck the  Parisians dumb with astonishment. It  is difficult to apportion; Sir Henry Irv-  ing's receipts apart from Miss Terry's'  But they undoubtedly were valued as  high as $G*O0 a night on tour.    /    y  CURED  j&s&  jS^.

What a Belfast Shipyard Could Do-  Interview With Lord Pirrie, Head  of Big Firm���������Fears Japan More  Than   Germany.  "Lord Pirrie, head of the great shipbuilding firm of Harland & Wolff, ABel-  fast, has been giving his views on the  naval question to Mr. Harold Spender, a  "London journalist, -who has taken a  great interest in the present shipbuilding  -orogramnie of the Government. The  results are embodied in an interesting  interview, which appeals in the Pall  Mall Magazine for May, and iu view of  his lordship's position as one of the  leaders of the shipbuilding industry, his  opinions will be received with considerable weight.  His lordship; in the course of the  interview, expressed the opinion that  the German -danger haa been exaggerated. He thought the explanation of the  aeoeteration of the German programme  given by a high authoiity, viz., that  ships were put down in order to   give  low the top, with their heads rig'it way  up, but with their clothes sorm'-uhat  torn, as if they had slipped and fallen.  About three, hundred feet higher up  they came upon Mr. McBean anil another porter.-sitting down, the former  with his hiJnd .leading -on ose hand and,  the elbow on a knapsack- ropes coiled  up, batons, axes, .and knapsacks round  about them -still containing a littl-- food.  Upon Mr. ,MeBeah a notebook was  found containing several entx-icB in respect to the occasion.  All of "the five corpses were hard  frozen. They -were; put into sacks and  dragged down'toAehamonix. It took  three days to transport them. Tin* bodies  of the six others have not vet been  recovered, hut 'they will probably come  to light in the course of a few years.���������  Professor Edward Whymper, in the May  Strand.- ;-v -y;/.,vwy  TWO MAGISTRATES  TESTJAM-8UK.

There was greater  depression in German shipbuilding than  i������ British, and the putting in hand of  naval work was one of the German  methods of dealing with the unemployed  questioiu "But," added Lord Pirrie, "of  course- I may be wrong���������-they may* be  deceiving "us, but I do uot see any absolute proof of that."  Asked for his views as to whether  Germany was beating England in the  pace of turning out shins, his lordship  answered:"No, I do not think ss- "What  haa kept English ships back up to the  present is that the Government have  first given the orders for the ships and  their machinery;" but have kept back the  orders for guns, gun mountings, and  armor platings The result has been that  after the ships have been built, ������ long  delay has been necessary before the guns  can be made and tested���������a very important and delicate operation. These  things take almost as long as building  thie ship. But X am glad to see that the  Admiralty are now making a change ia  their arrangements^ and propose to give  simultaneous orders for ihe ships, the  guns and the gun mountings. That will  mean much much greater speed in, build-'  ing, and once that system is put into-  force, I think we shall find that we have  no need to fear the rivalry ol any other  nation."  "At a pinch, could AEngland build as  tubes similar to gas pipes. By means of  the apparatus fresh, dry, outside air enters constantly into the air supply tubes  and iB highly heated in the tubea surrounding the fire places. It ascends in  a dry, heated state in the room, passes  along, the ceiling and walls, and absorbs the dampness, sinking down after being saturated with the same and  re-entering   the the   apparatus.  It then mixes with the coke gases in  the outlet tube for the smoke, and even-  tually escapes into the chimney. This  constantly renewed,, fresh, outside ah*  furnishes en abundance of carbonic acid  to the Eaortar. thus handening it and  producing in a short time the same effect as if the mortar had dried naturally. It is claimed by this system that no  moisture can possibly show later on.; A  striking recommendation for the apparatus is that the Gyerman law prohibiting  the habitation of any house until six  months after, construction ta abrogated  by the authorities where this system is  used.   .������ ������������   Ask -for Minard's and take no other.  maay Dreadnoughts as Germany? The  country has almost been alarmed at the  revelations aa to the number of big ships  ���������of Dreadnoughts,;to use the current  name;���������that;have bees laid down in Ges-  many of reeeht years."  "I wiil,take our firm (Hariand &  Wolff) as' ah instance. We could build  two Dreadnoughts at once, aud make  machinery for four more.; And if that  is true of one firm alone, what could not  be done by all the great shipbuilding  yards combined ?. Why, there are yards  idle in England at the present moment  that could turn out a greater number of  Dreadnoughts than all the German yards  put together." "And turn them out  more rapidly?" "Yes, and turn .them  out more raDidlv���������under the new system." ~ ������  MS LORDSHIP AND    THE KAISER.  Turning from.naval  shipbuilding    to  mercantile shipbuilding, the interviewer  asked his lordship if he feared German  shipbuilding more than any other, nnd  he replied: "No, I do not fear Germany.  I remember once saying   to the German  Emperor, 'Sir, I do not fear your competition/ to wliich he made a very sensible reply: "There is no reason for you  to  fear  us���������wo  can  advance  together.'  The German shipbuilding yards arc more  idle than ours.   When they are at work  the German shipwrights   are very able,  steady   craftsmen, possessed   of   maiiy  virtues, especially of endurance and industry, but we have perhaps as serious  a competitor, if not more    serious, in  Japan.   Besides, the Japanese have all  the material resources of coal and iron  ready to hand, while the Germans havo  to bring their raw material either from  far inland or from England. The Japan-  oso arc doing wonder**, nnd I am surprised that England is not  more con-  Hcious of the very severe competition���������  quite right and friendly competition���������of  Japan.    Tlie Japanese are now building  for  themselves, and they arc building  very good ships.   In tho Far East their  ships are taking the  place qf ours on  tho Japan-California route, nud it is not  impossible that the Japanese may finally  possess themselves of the great shipping  routes of that part of the world.  Then-  is no need to complain of that. But it  is  rathei* surprising thnt  here in  England nobody ever speaks of tho competition of Japan.

At the monastery of St. Gall in Switzerland the four-sided bell of the Irish missionary St. Gall, who lived in the seventh  century, is still preserved; but^ mote  ancient still is the bell of St. Patrick in j  Belfast, which is ornamented with gold  and gems and silver filigree work.  The curfew bell is that about which  most has been written and said. ,It has  been thought that it was only used in  England,- but it was quite common on  the continent in the middle ages.  The ringing of bells by rope is still  very poular in England,^especially in the  country, where almost every hamlet,  however small, has its church -with its  peal of hells, which are often remarkabiy  well rung. The first peal of bells in England was sent by Pope Calixtus III. to  Kine's College, Cambridge, and was for  three hundred years the largest peal in  England. About the beginning of the  year 1500 sots of eight bells were hung  in a few of the large churches.  In the micMle of the seventeenth century a man nnmed White wrote afom-  ous work on bells, iti which he introduced the system of numbering them 1,  2, 3, 4, etc., on slips of paper in different orders, according to tho changes,  intended to be rung. It is calculated  that to ring all the changes upon 24 bolls  nt tW/O strokes a second \vould take 117  million years.  One of the most famous bolls in the  world is the first great bell of Moscow,  which now stands in tho middle of a  square in that city nnd is used as a  chapel. This bell wns oust in 17.13, but  was In the earth for more tluin a hundred years, lieing raised in 1830 by the  Emperor Nicholas. It is nearly twenty  feet high, hns n circumference of sixty  feet, is two feet thick arid weight*; almost  two hundred ton*-.

Nearly hfilf the weight of the human  body consists of muscles which connect  the bones and, by contraction, move  them into various positions. In the best  steam engines only one-tenth of tha po-  , tential energy of the fuel Ib converted  into mechanical work, but the muscles  utilize in. work from 34 to 55 per cent;  of the energy of the food and probably  much more, as the experiments which  furnished these figures were performed  with muscles removed from the body,  not with living muselea richly supplied  with blood. The less the contraction of  a muscle the greater is its efficiency. A  steam engine which is maintained in  good condition works hour after hour  and day after day, always consuming  the same quantity of coal in performing the same amount of work.  'With the muscles, however, it is different. For their waste products from  combustion accumulate and cause fatigue. The poison of fatigue gradually  io washed away by the. blood, and in  light and slow work it is carried off as  rapidly as it is formed by the activity  of the muscle, while in heavy, violent,  or greatly prolonged labor it accumulates in the muscles and makes them  lesfa efficent as machines, so that they  consume moro fuel in performing a given  amount of work. It is the sensation of  fatigue that causes us unconsciously to  select the easiest way of doing things���������  for example, to ascend a mountain by a  winding rather than by a straight-path,  although we thus increase th������j total  qauntity of work.    ,  .. -    ��������� ^ ������������        AGENTS WANTED.

For   it' would I waited, with revolver pointing, ior  his  appear (if one may judge by the medals  given for bravery this year in the police  department) that they are also the  bravest.  .There may have been giants in the  olden days, but we seem to have retained our heroes to the present. For  the deade which this year have earned  our modern substitutes for the bays of  ancient times include arrest in the face  of fii t-arins, rescue from drowning, stopping furious runaways at tho imminent  risk of death, and the pursuit of duty  under no less difficulty than that of a  dangerous knife stab.  It i> for these deeds of bravery that  the medals are" this year awarded.  The*'badges of courage themselves rank  in different order. They ,are of gold,  with *the exception of one, the depart-*  x merit' medal, which is of iron, and is  accounted the greatest meed of all. Thus,  in the year 11707, no act of-bravery waa  considered sufficient for wliich to award  this plain iron tribute, the final prize  of Finest heroism. This-year a hero will  present himself and get his due. After  the department medal ranks the Khine-  lnnder -medal, then tlte Bell, after this  the Meyer, and finally, but yet large  with;honor, the Automobile Club medal;  In addition to'these there is yet another  ���������that which is called the Brooklyn  citiz^g&'^mcdal, but which has not, however, hjjen awarded 'yet. The First Deputy Commissioner, the Borough Presi-'  dent of Brooklyn and the President of  the Hamilton Trust Company compose  the committee which finally decide to  whom it-should be given.  Of the heroes of  this year    he   who  receives* thai highest tribute of all,   the  iron cross, is Policeman James C. White,  whose 'shield is No. 7,708, and who comes  from the twelfth precinct.   He is a new  appointment,  being  made   a. patrolman  on March 27,  1907, and is one  of  the  married majority of the year's bravest,  three of those soon, to be decorated oue3  being pre-empted and two may yet be  made ���������, husbands  as  well  as heroes.    It  was in-East'Houstoh street that WhiteV  chance  came.    He was    arresting    one  Frank  Restiro, when   he  was suddenly  attacked by his prisoner with a knife.  The attack was unexpected, and White  found himself stabbed in the back below  the   right   kidney.      Heedless     of     his  wounds, he set forth in pursuit of the  flying   ruffian,  and   after    two   blocks  came up with him and put him under  arrest.    White was bleeding .freely;  his  lieu**! was becoming dizzy, his sight was  growing dim.'  He collapsed on the  sidewalk,  but not until  he   had  given his  prisoner     to the    charge  of a  brother  policeman.    This'was'-on, Dec. 27, 1808,  but he was back to his duty oh Jan. 11,  11)00.     This  reads  simple' but   stirring  talcs of fiction have been written around  characters which indicated no    greater  qualities"of courage than this.   He was  weak   from  the draining  of  his   blood  wheu he pursued and captured the man  who stabbed him. ^  Ne\t in rank upon the official "roll of  courage is* Policem-in. Edward Burke  shield No. 5, 734, one of the unmarried,  who is cow stationed in the seventy-  ninth precinct, but who. was attached  to. the third subr-precinct- at the time  of his brave deed, 'the rescue ���������'of Mra.  P. jUessery from almost certain, death.  Mrs. Messery was riding in a brougham,  the horse attached to whioh took fright  mid collided with a hansom. The driver  was "thro'wn to' the street;' one of the  doors, vwas.,tora off. The horse, now  crazy with fe'ar, raced at a frightful  (���������peed toward Burke, who stood at the  crossing of  Fifty  avenue    and    Fifty-  approach. Brown hesitated not a sec  ond, and though only thirty-five feet  away rushed upon his quarry. He discharged bis own revolver over the man's  head. He reached him without injury  and made him. prisoner. A loaded cartridge was in his prisoner's pistol. And  be it remembered in risking his life in  tht?,way Brown could look for no great;  rewards of place or pi-j It was simpiv  his day's work.   May ono find fiv-r?  The filial name of thi3 ban.*, of the  bravest as well as the finest is that of  Policeman F. J. O'Grndy, whose shield  number is G.227, and who belongs to  traffic precinct C. It was on Juno 6.  '1903, that a horse attached to a Brooklyn express wagon became frightened by  a passing automobile while' the driver  was adjusting the bridle preparatory to  feeding the horse in Thirty-Sixth street,  between Fifth*and Sixth avenues. The  horse ran east in Thirty-Sixth street to  Madison avenue, the driver clinging to  the harness of the bridleless animal,  and at the corner of Madison aven-ie  and Twenty-Sixth street he was thrown  under a wagon, the wheels of' which  passed over "him. O'Grady started in  pursuit as the runaway crossed Fifth  avenue. He made an unsuccessful attempt to catch hold of the bridleless  horse, but the horse went on and **.urn-  ed into Madison avenue and raced down  the steep hill at whirlwind speed. It  was at Thirty-First street and Madison  avenue that O'Qradv cot his work in.  Be overtook the maddened .horse, took  hold of its mane and vaulted fro.-n the  hack o������ his own hoi-se to that .-.f the  frenzied creature. The rest for him was  easy. He leaned forward, and, grasping  the horse by the nostrils, stopped him  in short order. He' had throughout this  time utterly disregarded his own personal safety in his effort to stop the  runaway and save others from possible  injury.  Such are the deeds of the men who  this year will receive recognition if their  valor���������deeds than which no greater may  be found in the keenest strife of battle,  deeds performed valiantly, unquestion-  ingly, l>y the modest heroes who are  under the impression that they are simply earning their pay.

Tho man firoil at ^lim and  Among Them a Morbid Horror of Dirt  and  of   High   Places.  Never have doctois written and talked bo frankly about ns and our ills. It  used to be the proper medical attitude  Lo listen attentively to our reliearsal of  our symptom:., and to treat the same  with at least an outward show of respect.  The modern method is different. Tli3  fad for making light of sickness ha^  driven the doctors to show us that they  have all the time been secretly making  light of many of our cherished ills. They  knew we were victims of our own imagination and they treated that imagination in their own shrewd way. Wo  haven't had anything like th-i diet of  drug*- we thought we had.  A New York physician, writing in the  Ecclesiastical lleview on the general subject'of &erup!es, tells some of the interesting classes of such cases wliich com*!  under the doctor's care. There are, for  example, the people who have a moibid  horror of dirt . They fear especially r.o  soil their hands or face and will iva^ii  themselves over and over again, ten,  twenty, even thirty, times a day. Whenever they touch 'anything they wash  their hand-.  They frequently so rub tha skin *ofi  them that; they become soie aind develop  various fdrms of artificial dermatitis,  because of the mechanical removal of  the epidermis and the irritation of soap  and water. No amount of1 reasoning will  keep then? from doing thia. It may be  pointed out to them that most people  enjoy quite good health without any  such solicitude about cleanliness, but  that makes ho difference to them.  Some of the women who are afflicted  with the affection would not think for a  -moment of touching a door knob; they  make all sorts of excuses  to wait for  somebody else to open the door.   Often  they will not confess,their unwillingness  to touch an object that is'handled, by  so many people., At the door of a store  they will find some excuse td;pause a  moment   until  someone, else  opens  the  door.

Not the help of friends as powerless as themselves; not the frozen  and* uncertain precepts of philosophy;  but faith that God has compassion  on them, th'e assurance that He is  pitiful and merciful, and will hear  their prayer out ol the dust and will  help tbem in their "sore need,���������the  assurance that He does not look coldly bri us from the, sky, but that He*  looks in love; and all language is  weak to express sthis assurance; compared with the cross of Christ; The  heavens might break forth into articulate voices of revelation, and they  would be meaningless compared with  that great sacrifice.

The Merchants Association of New  York has published an indictment  against the common housefly. The  object of the pamphlet is to help educate the public to a knowledge of  the dangers of the fly plague, as it  is called, and the means for putting  an end to it. This publication is a  sign that ideas of cleaner living are  gaining ground among the people. Insect life as a rule is poisonous. Poisonous because insects of every sort  and, especially, the flying ones, cawy  atoms of poison of the worst character as they travel about.  The service performed by the Merchants' Associatior in this case is  an exc??lent one, because it cites so  many verified instances of the different means which have been found  good in ws-fare against flies. The  first thing necessary to be taught, beginning with the children, is the absolute danger that attends the toleration of the fly plague. When that is  once thoroughly understood there will  be a steady betterment of conditions  and a more intelligent method .applied to rid. homes 6f that which is  really tne ol the most dangerous oi  i>C.sto.'  ��������� . .,       <���������������.*������ -^   The   Little   Green   Trail.

An occupation with few followers is  the hunting of sea elephants, which are  found iii great but rapidly decieasing  droyea in ~tLe Antarctic regions, especially on or near lverguelen Land.  '"In "JCovember, the beginning of th>3  mating season," writes (Japt. Cleveland  in Hampton's ^Iaga--ine, "the male and  female elephants drag themselves into  the beaches, where they lis in great  'pods.' 1 have seen as many as seventy-  five or a hundred massed iu sueh "a  bunch. This is also the shedding season,  and the animals rub the hair from their  thick hides in preparation for ths new  coat.  /"'the females and the young have no  distinguishing trunk; and" the trunk, the  mark of the elephant, grows upon the  male only after he has reached the age  of three years. It is really scarcely a  trunk; it is more like a flabby snout and  is only about fifteen inches in length.  It elongates when the animal gets excited.  'This formidable looking, monev yielding brute is often confused with tho  walrus, which as a matter of fact it r<--  sembles only in size. Its two rows of  teeth or tusks���������those of the bull���������are  between six and seven inches long in  front, and grow shorter toward the back  of the jaws. The tusks do not project  like those of the walrus. The largest  elephant I ever encountered was sixteen  feet in length and six* feet high at the  shoulders.  '���������'The sea elephant has largCiCyes, surmounted by huge brows.- Its "forward  flippers, two in number, are armed witli  five nails ea'ch, but the* aft flippers have  not even rudimentary nails. The animal when on shore moves with a hobbling, rolling motion, its whole -body-  quivering like jelly," but it navigates  tiie water with "almost the agility, of an  eei.   It feeds on cuttlefish and mollusks.  "'When  you  stop to   think that  the  butticjisu   Ox    iTuuicai    wiiLGia   SOitlStlUiCi  attains a weight of two tons," you will  realize the prowess of the sea elephant"  and the -strength of it** jaw's.  "Having feasted for many months  upon these grim delicacies of<the deep,  the bull elephants hobble out on to the  beaches and in the mating season, engage  in fierce battles.        ���������**'"     ���������  '   ''    "'  "Our purpose is to reach the island  about the time that the sea elephant  lands.

All three' are sold in  our .markets. The,first, is tho niost  healthful and nourishing food known;  the second is devoid of the'^pr6'per,.! sustenance nnd often harmful; the third  is .'extremely dangorous.* , ;>  To bo pure milk should.oome iram  healthful cows and he produced and  marketed'under conditions;of scrupulous cleanline8S---Eealed at tlie dairy,  not permitted to1 ���������come- in'* contact'������������������'wittty ���������'/  tho hand or the air from the time jit  is  milked until  it reaches  tlie  consumer  and-.'drunk., .within-, forty-eight-  hours after milking.
