The riflle shoot held by the Creston-  Erickson Rifle Association, on the range  between the two points, was a great success. Being Thanksgiving Day, most  of the sfcore3, oto , were closed, aud an  opportunity was thus given for everyone to furn out. As a result of seeing  the preliminary announcement in tho  "Review, a communication had been received from the Fernie Rifle Club, offur-  ing to shoot a matfch i^gainst a picker!  team of local eha! H, "and the matter being  arranged, the Fernie boys come down  on the Sunday train.  At a little before 0 a.m.  on the 25th.  both teams, accompanied .by their supporters, -drove down to the range,  and  jp&gggQasii* ^oiog~?r?ind. satisfactory,t tho  shooting began at 9.] o a.m.  shooting were good;  Conditions' for  the wind was constant, blowing across  the range from left to right, and later  dying away to aimosL a, ooxiiplete calm,  with a slight gust every few minutes.  t  The light however, was very puzzling,  alternating between very 15ght>and dull,  sometimes the 'target being bathed iu  sunshine while tho firing point was a dull  streak; again, the targets were -in -the  sbado, whilst the sun shone bright on  tho barrels of the rifles. These cbangos  offected tho shooting, especially at the  longor ranges, sometimes a single marks-  onan would score a bull, then with tho  next shot make an outer, although the  pull off in both cases seemed equally  ible the result would havo been different.  At ll.4o,a.m. the "cease fire" was  sounded, and both teams after giving  threo cheers for Fernie and Oreston respectively, moved to the tent, where the  MetlicdisD "ladies had surpassed themselves by providing what everyone voted  to bo the irnest Thanksgiving, dinner  they had ever'eaten.

Some valuable information has just  been obtained from Mr. Frank Aiken, a  pioneer mining man and prospector of  this district, who has been prospecting  in the Bayonne camp for the past eight  years; and who owns eeveral valuable  properties in that camp. According to  Mr. Aikens, the Bayonne camp is from  0,200 to 7,300 feet above sea level. The  principal groups in this camp are as  follows: The Bayonne Group of nine  claims, at present has four claims known  as the Old Mike, Summit Bell, Echo,  and Sunrise now working. This oro is  free -milling gold aud runs as high as  from $30 to ������500 per ton. There is now  I over five hundred tons of high grade ore  already on the dump on these claims.  The next group of importance is the  Mont-m***- * Group, consisting of three  claims, owned by Phil. Casey and others.  This group is very promising and the  ore is very similar to that of the Bay-  pnne. The Echo Group comes next with  its six claims, and ������. force Gf miners are  at present developing this group, which  is.'owned by W" Maher. The ore assays  ,*!?80 in gold. Then there is the Summit  Ball Group, owned by F. Aiken, comprising three oleums. Th8 ore here assays from gCO to $115 per ton. There is  a'tunnel, one hundred and fifty feet  long on these claims, and it is regarded  as one of the drawing cards of the camp.  There is also the Old Mike Group of four  claims, which is owned by Aiken and  Ginsberg* There are four tunnels on  this group and over seven hundred feet  of work, has been done. The average  gold assay is $50 per ton. After this is  the Smuggler Group, with its three  claims. It is owned by Messrs. Stewart  and Malone, of Nelson. This group has  assayed as high as $100 per ton in gold.  The Campbell Group of foui* claims  comes next, and is owned by Jos. Campbell. On this group the ledge has been  exposed by stripping over 2,000 feet, and  the ore runs from $30 to $70 per ton < in  gold. The Arkanaw Group comes next  with its three claims, owned by Angus  Currie and others. Here there are open  cuts, and the surface is stripped, expos-  mi*; the ore on all sides, whioh assays  u run  FOUND'GUILTY  OF ABDtJOTIOH  AND THEFT AT DHiTH-  BRIDGE  Tuesday morning, October 19th, at  Lethbridge, Wwlls was up before the  magistrate to answer to s preferred  charge of abduction | of a girl named  Jones, -whom Wells, it appears, waa  convinced he could convert into ft dram*  atic star of the first magnitude. The '-  Lethbridge-Herald says:  "According to the first witness called,  Mr. Jones, the father of the girl, Wells  had represented himself as a theatrical  man, and wanted Mr. Jones' daughter  to attend a school in Denver, where she*  would be trained for entrance to the  stage. This Tones bad refused to allow*  although Wells had come to him. repeatedly trying to persuade him to allow ths  girl to go.  - "Saturday nighty Wells and ths sisi  took matters into their own hand, and  decided to go in spits of protest. Weill  walked into the house about 1 q'olock'  Sunday morning and picked np the girl's*  valise, telling her to come on right tmd*  er the father's notice.   This she did."  This was the substance of the father's  testimony, and after hearing the evidence of both sides, the prisoner, George t  Weils, was found guilty on iho abduct- '  ion charge and sentenced to 23 months'  imprisonment. He was also found guilty  on the charge of theft and sentenced to '  an additional six montliB.   It was after .  he had received his sentence  that lie '  attempted to commit suicide in his cell  by, knotting his shirt to the top of his  cell, being found swinging from it, al������ '  most strangled to death.   He is now oo-.y  ing very carefully watched.  SS0 per ton in gold. TJie Sunrise Group  of five claims, owned by Angus v Currie  and W.' Maher presents a fine appearance. -jThere haa- fie^nVG^lot pft������VRw^}  done oh this group in the way of stripping, and rich float can be found on all  sides. This float assays from $800 to  $900 per ton. To show the magnitude  of iho Btiyonae camp, it is stated that in  addition to these groups already mentioned thero are at least 50 other claims  O. P.

'  The Kelley Swift Company, ploying  at the Mercantile Unll on Monday night  next, will present "The Remittance  Mnu," a veritable scream from start to  finish. The Edmondton Bulletin, speaking of this show, says: "This Ib the best  road show seen in Canada for years."  R. W. Palmer, tho government apple  packer, will givo domonstntions on tho  fioieutiflc packing of apples, at tho ranch  of J, Compton, on November 4th next.  This is a raro opportunity for all fruit  growers to lenrn tho art of paolting np-  imcking apples and it is to bo hoped that  many will avail thomhtolvum of tho opportunity. Mr. Pnlmer'B sorvicos on  this occasion will be given freo.  Frank Aiken, who is thoroughly famil  iar with the Sheep Creek camp and other mining camps in B.C., says that in  magnitude the Bayonne camp, although  iu its now state, far exceeds tho Sheep  Greek cnuip in importance and size.   It  is further stated that the Bayonne Group  will start shipping as soon as tha wagon  road from Oreston to the camp has been  eomplotod in   the   spring.      Crestou,  .nooording to Mr. Aikeu, is the nearest  shipping point by land to the Bayonne  camp, and says that the general public  have no idea of the many high-grade  gold properties that are in that camp,  Thoro is an abundance of wator and all  tho timbor necessary for mining purposes for many years  to come.    The  Bayonne camp, uccordiug to Mr. Aiken,  is also n voritablo hunters' paradise, as  both large and small game abound, and  tho many small lakes in that can-in am  literally filled with ducks and fish of nil  kinds,  I  To the  Mercantile Hall  On Monday Evening  Nov. i*t  j  And Hear the Famous  KERRY 00W CO.

P  1  I  For in ore than a year has serge been  a fashionable material, and the number  of serge gowns aud costumes being  made up at the present moment would  indicate that the fashion is still popular.  Serge is a material that has generally  been associated with the idea of cold  weather, the winter season and practical  hard wear generally; but there are now  so many different weaves and weights,  not io mention variety of colors, that  the material has .assumed'a place of its  own among the fabric* for .summer, as  well as, winter, and no outfit is complete without st le.tst one serge costume. Black and blue have been and  are the favorite colors for general wear,  while serge somehow seems a ching  apart and is u-ed for more elaborate,  styles: but grey and brown have of  late been added to the list. Brown  serge is. however, not to be rashly reded, for if it is net of   just the ]  There ������re &o many different materials  now to be found that will ma teh the  colov *��������������� tho costume, but are far lighter  in weight, that it is comparatively an  enAy ta-sk to keep the all one color effect  that is so much smarter than the white  waist and dark skirt. Chiffon cloth, net,  crepe de Chine and, once again, <"ilk are  all utilised fov the so para to wi*.->t. which  has a small chemisette and collar of  cream -let or lingerie or is made ti> wear  with white collar and tie. All the waists  are simple, in design, but are dt^tinetly  die-j"*. waists, not blouse, and are either  undo over boned and fitted linin������- or arc  wi.in over tight fitting coiset covers, tha  niin being to li**ok as trim as ���������wssiblt*.  With the coat aud skirt and movo elaborate lingerie waists are still fashionable,  hut aie rarely seen.with tin* oit. If  th,* he-ivier 'mat-rials are thought too  \v,r.-m there nre dark r������loiM in wash material-, that ea.ii he utilized.  Newest Coat and Skirt Costumes.  Oul*   of   the   newest of   the  coat   and  to wear skirts aud overskirts* that are  arranged with draperies and folds of the  most intricate description, caught up  here and there into fes-toocs, and drawn  around the figure, in the form' o-f sashes,  in various unexpected and decidedly uncomfortable places.    /.  t V  The   Low   Sash.  Those  skirts,  for instance, which tiro  tied in with sash dra-peries .half-way b-'-  tween the knee and the ankle, offer a  case in point.   It was not easy to-walk  with anything approaching grace or freedom     in     the     tight-fitting    Dlr-ectolr--  gowns, but it will be impossible  to do  more than mince along in Japanese fashion in skirts which are actuall ytied in  somewhere below the knees. We arc told  that mc must suffer in order to be beautiful, but it is a pity, surely, to siiftoi  and  not to bo    beautiful after all.  It  would be impossible, for example, to find  anything approaching  grace     in    thi*-.'*  nte-tningic'v- folds of material which nro  caught   together  and   ti-wl   into   elutu**y  bow-* on the front of the skirt, -midway  between ankle and knee.  The.io draperies are sometimes placed  straight across a centre panel of fine embroidery, thus spoiling altogether the  graceful effect upon those long lint*-,  which ought to run without interruption  from waist to feet. In a draped ^kirt  there ai\* always infinite possibilities of  charm and elegance, but t1> be entirely  tucccs-sful each fold -and pleat must haw  a distinct meaning rtiid intention of i'**1  own. and there must bo no baphaszard  looping and draping on lim*������ which run  in a. contrary duvet ion from those which  arc taken by the naturally bountiful  curves of the figure.  smoothly with this silk or are draped in  moire. Some of the soft corded silks  ���������ire tentatively used also and there is  talk of cloth covered hats to match costumes.  The rough beavers are represented in  the earliest showing, end there are of  course smooth felts, although these appear to have been somewhat neglected  in the making up of the advance models  of every character.  The all black hat has been much in  evidence during the summer and its popularity* is likely to endure.

Blue  serge  trimmed  with  black is a  combination   that   suggests     itself,   for  black  trimmed  blue  serge cotumes are  always smart whether the black be in  the facings  and  finish or in the braiding. At the moment the narrow soutache  and the inch width Hercules braid and  an inch wide fancy braid are the most  in demand.   There is no set rule as to  how the braiding shall be used.    There  may he hands  of  it around  the  skirt.  several    different   widths   combined,  or  four   ro ws   of  the   inch   wide   bordered  with the harrow soutache.   Some of the  costumes are  most  elaborately  braided,  while others  have  as little  as  possible  on   them���������just  enough,  to     show   that  braiding   is   the   "trimming     above    ail  others.  Smart Serge Costume.  The. one piece short serge gown, a sort  of long, lialf-fitting coat, has been and  is considered the smartest of any serge  costume. Extremely severe in line and  detail, it possesses the much sought  after effect of making the .wearer both  extremely slender and .girlish, and although it does not fit, tight to the figure y  it has all the appearance of it, and  carries ont to perfection the very latest  craze for a long jersey or sweater coat  With a pleated skirt.  Above tlie pleat������; nntirely covering the  Jersey toy, or what looks like a jersey,  the. material is covered "with an elaborate braiding of black soutache put on in  straight lines alternating with irregular  curves, the straight lines finished with  crochet    or   passementerie tassels; the  ������crge sleeves, full above the elbows, are  finished    with a straight    band of the  serge and below  the hand a deep lace  cuff.    There is a small yoke and slick  collar of lnco, and around the yoke and  above the cuffs is a    band of   Chinese  embroidery on n gold or silver braiding  on a light color cloth.    The same style  is made in a much sininhw^plan without  the oloborate braiding; and the plniner.  morn even style find's quite    as   many  patrons  or the   more  elaborate.      Too  much braiding, especially when not carried  out by  skilled    labor, lacks    the"  finish and style of the simpler gown.  "For perfection in cut and simplicity of  dofltyn it would he difficult to find a  smarter garment than the long fitted  coat of brown sorgo made on such  ���������severe lines, buttona and ends at the  eldes and front comprising all tho trimming excepting the yoke, collar and  cuffs of Irish lace.

Thero are  also cheviots that make up effectively,  and it is effective in heavy ribbed ^on~  ge* and in the smooth cloths in plain  | colors. Some women object to serge as iv  material and choose always the plain  cloth iu preference, and the latter material has been so popular of late years  that it now is more in demand for the  more elaborate gowns and costumes  that can Tx- made up with some trimming.  "White serge costumes, or, indeed, light  color serges, are not appropriate in  travelling, but ao summer outfit is  complete without a white serge coat and  skirt.

These seem at first glance  to bo tho same as the fitted long coats,  but they are quite different.

Horses,  Drives Cows���������Sounds  Alarms' When Thieves Come and  Tells When Postman Leaves a  Letter in the Box.  Auburn, Me.���������Electricity has been  harnessed on the Ramsdell Farm, in  Minot, Me., and at the button touch  or timo clock behest of the proprietors  it is made to do many kinds of work.  The same subtle force that Benjamin  Franklin ouee drew from' tho clouds  on a kite string is now hitched up ab  a willing slave to agriculture.  This sixty acre farm is five miles  west of Auburn,-, near the Lewiston  and Mechanic Falls electric line. It  was purchased by the present owners,  father and son, eight years ago. The  senior member of the firm, Osgood  Ramsdell, was for a long time engaged in the mills of Lewiston, and  the junior member, Edgar E, Ramsdell, has for years been an expert  electrician and is chief inspector of  Alio New England Telephone Company.  For fourteen years he was in the employ of an electric lighting company  in Salem.  The entire familv is electrically in-  rooms and a Morse register in the outfit.  An electric clock is run 'entirely by  batteries, without any aid from' springs .  or weights. This clock will run a > year  without renewing the batteries.' The*  movement is valued at $50 by the inventor. A recent addition is a large  self-winding calendar clock, and another  unique, no-key electric devier*, making  three electric clocks in the dining room.  For the protection of the outside  telephone line from the shop to the  house there is a cutout^Jightning, arrester. This is located outside of the  iiouse and is operated "by two cords.* In  case of a shower one cord is pulled, cutting off the line where.-it .enters the  building and- leaving the- arrester - connected to the ground. After danger from  the lightning is over the other cord is  pulled, throwin" the telephone once  more into operation.      r       ,  Tho Ramsdciis do not expect to see  ,many of the devices^employed-on their  farm come into general use, but they'  say they have good reason to believe  that a considerable number of the ways  of employing electrical energy now in  use and being planned will he utilized  on hundreds of Maine farms' in the  lifetime of many-now living.  The family includes the senior member of the' farm firm, Osgood Ramsdell, and wife; the son, Edgar, E., the  prime electrical head, his wife and five  young electricians. The eldest girl, Nina  Ramsdell, eleven years old, will be the  operator   of   the  new   branch  magneto  *������  ���������*���������*>-  ALASKA'S   BLACK   GOLD.  clined. Two other brothers, A.

Upon entering the house the visitor  is confronted with an array of electrical mechanism" in the dining roonr  which covered, a large space on the'  walls. A feature of the entire installation, which includes a telephone  and electric bell call in each room in  the house, besides the manifold other  connections with stable, " mail - box,  poultry house and burglar and fire  alarm "system is the entire absence of  visible wires, except in the cellar,  where the cables, disposed carefully  out of harm's way, tell the story of  skilful installation.  The gratifying thing about the electrical plant is the fact-that everything  works. Of the score or more separate  devices used for utilitarian or demonstration purposes, all work with accuracy at tKe press of a button or the  iniative of the clock that controls  them.  /  NEW FASHION  FALL COATS.

But when it comes to  coal_fields, says the American Review  oi, Keviews, Alaska has no competitor. Its store.of high grade fuel cannot be equalled in quality west of the  Rockies.  In fact to find anthracite and bituminous coal which compares in fuel  value with that of Alaska one must  come east to Pennsylvania. These  coals are, therefore, ths key to the  commercial situation on the west  coast. For a high grade steaming  coal used for manufacturing" industries or o merchant marine or a coke  for smelters in the Western.States one -  must turn to Alaska.  Hence   the   growing* population   of  the West has a vital interest in the  development   of   theso    coal     fields. .

Clare drew a deep breath of relief and  satisfaction oe he made his way into the  street again, and on his road to the  gloomy square feft his heart mote-buoyant and free, and held his head more  erect than ever before.  Now he wsm on a. fair way to Independence and tne possession of the goiden-  haired girl with whom he had fallen ia  love at first sight.  CHAPTER V.  On the following sxamirig Clare D-e  Jersey rose early, partook of a light-  breakfast of bread and milk���������for he  knew not how boou he should be compelled to fare as frugally���������and, without having seen his father, who had kept his  room for tho last few days, repaired to  the accountant s office, pushing ��������� the  green baize door open as the clock struck  nine.  Immediately he was introduced to his  desk by a fellow clerk, and found upon  it a number of closely written sheets  for copying.  At these and similar tasks he was employed the whole day, with the exception of an hour for dinner and half  hour for tea, which spare time he ������pout  in eating a roll and a piece of cheese at  an old-fashioned tavern���������luncheon bars  were unknown seventy years ago���������and  in au excursion around the neighborhood, which was as strange a one to him  as to the Essez farmer, by wheso side he  fctood gazing at St. Paul's.  As' the clock struck seven he, following the example of the older clerks, put  aside his work and reached for his hat,  which hung upon a peg above his head,  erne.      he     could  at*.

"AndVyour daughter, does she not  brtp yoa?" asked Clare, lookisg --.round  upon the cheese, butter, candles and  soap.  "Bless you, sir, no!" exclaimed Mr.  Nickelboy, with a strange earnestness.  "Daisy, is a perfect lady. She does nothing except Jam the millinery, which, I  am told, she is' wonderfully clever at,  bless her. Mrs. Nickelboy do say that she  will be a wonderful good hand at making bonnets and all them kind of  | things."  Clare wan silent, pictari������g the golden  bead bent over a mass 'of; ribbons^ the  tiny fingers plying the rapid needle. -  The eld man dispelled the vision by-  saying:  "I expect her hero direotly, sir; its  close upon her time, and Daisy is never  a minute late. Ah, here she "ia," exclaimed Mr. Nickelboy, looking through  the window and lighting his good-natured old face with a loving smile.  TheJ next instant the light figure' of  tine girl .tripped into the shop, aa-ts, not  seeing Clare, who stood in the shadow,  she took the old man's faotfTietween her  hands, and with a coo of greeting, kissed  him.

In a few mmutes Daisy, who had left  the room to remove K������*r warm shawl  and hat, entered, and going to a drawer, drew from it a snowy tablecloth.  At the warning of supper, Clare arose,  but Mr. Nickelboy pressed him eo eagerly to remain and take "a bit of sup"  with them, and his entreaties wore bo  warmly echoed by ths eld lady, ti*fc  i CSare sank into his chair againj' stealing a glance every now aud then at tho  gentle girl, who set about;her'wonted  task with a quiet, earnest; air, and SQw.de  him more in love with her thaii ever.

By chance his chair was placed opposite Daisy's, and fascinated by the  deep blue eyes, he ate little, but supped  well of love glances.

All this Clare noted, and something  else besides, and that was that, although ihe old man tun! girl evidently  entertained for each other* the deepest  affection, their manner' lacked something of that- usual betweeca father and  daughter.  Daisy wa3 more attentive, more tender and loving that most daughters,  and, most marked of all, the old man's  manner was tinged with a tone of respect.  By no single act of Mr. Nickelboy's  did this become impressed upon dare,  but still impressed it was; aaid it perhaps awoke bun to the fact that the  gentle, beautiful girl bore about bar a  "certain difference, not only in appearance, but in voice, in manner and in  tone, to the good old man and hie simple,  honest-hearted wife.

As forecasted in these columns some weeks ago,'Premier  McBride, having completed satisfactory an-augeiuetits with  the C. N. Rly., is now decided to appeal to the country for  a continuance of their support, polling day to he November  25th, 1909. The appeal being based on the grounds of the  success of the Government with its general and financial  policy, and also a request to endorse his proposed deal with  Mackenzie and Mann, as outlined below, and which will  lead to a further great extension of railway communications  ��������� ������1   * * '  XU.    LJLLJ.O    pl-JVJUI-C,  **  Put in a nutshell, the arrangement is as follows: Subject  to the approval of the electors, a contract has been entered  into with the Canadian Northern Railway for the construction of a road from the Yellow Head Pass to Kamloops, by  ���������way of the North Thomdsou River, from Kamloons to West-  ���������minster and Vancouver, and from a point near Vancouver to  English Bluff, to make a first-class connection with Vic--  toria, both for passenger and freight, land to build a railway  from Victoria to Barkly Sound, a distance in all of about  six hundred miles.  The estimated cost of this line is not less than $50,960  per mile. The Government wish to guarantee interest on  $35,000 per mile of ^4 per cent., holding for security a first  mortgage on the line in British Columbia.  We are unable at the present time to give any outline of  the policy of the Liberal party. They seem to confine  themselves wholly to criticism of details and personalities,  and are quite unable to bring out a platform bold and complete enough to call for the support of the electorate. The  needs of British Columbia are for a forward developing policy. The mere negative issues raised by Liberal politicians  are not at all attractive to the people of UJp young and virile province, and we think that the electors will recognise  this truth by giving their support to the forward program  outlined by Premier McBride. It is a little early yet for  the issues to become clear cut enough for the average elector, but as polling day draws nearer and nearer, the development schemes of the present Government will shine out  more and more against the mere negative criticism of a discredited Opposition, and we venture to predict the return of  the McBride candidates by an overwhelming majority.  <������������������������? ������������������^^^������������������'i^irfad^ ^  ���������wl'*m|.u^.c^l..������,. ^MWWMM  JCl>B^Tw-.Wi������f������rx������rwrS������������E7*i  'Stf ������������S*%i i^ ���������=* jaa' ���������**������  rr~r--*^^fffmBBg85*j������-^eit*m*agi!giy #7-"acTj  &Jl;SnyyyA 8    &    b    -       w  ���������Win-ii:^Bin ^nir  ���������J notei or ine  \ Fruit    Belt  .a Fa  ti  if  1  imfMhttinnvtv-AKMKa  k -*e*nas%s������Tt.Haa_mfimwL*e***r*a  *Mtu*ar^anc*tt������t*rv^  WHOLESALE;yWINE5, LIQUORS  j&j&mj&mAND CIGARS ^^^^g^g^g^.  *xmn,,v.rr.r ... ,������A*, ������.-.^w.��������� .--t"*t-.���������-v-r^Tr^i,  Our  Call  Guests  cAgain  make no mistake  when you get off the train  A .. if you sign the register at  the Creston Hotel.

I   iTUftOft;
Hew the World Looks to  Short-
Sighted Persons.
The common opinion regards short-
eight as an ailment which merely prevents due recognition of distant objects.
It is not realized that much more is involved than this. Our limited reuse oi
vision gives us not only a circumscribed
but aisc a different view of our but-
roundinga. Thus, in admiring Nature, I,
tbe myopic, behold a landscape other
than that which spreads before you.
Vegetation, for instance, is blurred and
soft like an impressionist picture, the
color spreading occasionally as if a
child had handled the bru-?h. You see
spaces between the - clearly-defined '
leaves of the tree and the light shiniuyv
through the spaces. I see merely a sof'
mass with no spaces, the leavers all blotting into one another. The same holds
good with other respects of Nature���
it is a world without detail or outline,
thus giving even solid buildings a
cloudy and unsubstantial look.
Not only the inanimate, but the animate world presents Itself in strange
forma of the myopic. Humanity, for in-
utanoa, is often revealed in somewhat
'"hum-us guise. Thus, so far as ocular
demonstration goes, the world to the
short-sighted is peopled by men and women as faceless, sometimes even as head-
��� less, as the horsemen of legendary fame.
Indoors myopic persons get quite accustomed to "talking with persons who
"have neither eyes nor nose; out of doors
the phenomenon is more striking, because oftener repeated. At quite a, short
distance the face melts into the atmosphere and becomes either a cloud or,
Uke H. G-. Wells' invisible man, a noth-
ii-gsess. I see the hat and the figure,
sometimes the beard; I see the walking
stick���if the hand, is ungloved this stick
is waving nsiracuiousiy a little way from

face, has vanished.���Constance Clyde, in

Walk Tells Man's Character.
(By Searles Patterson.)
The way a man or woman walks
means more to a close observer than the
walker would admit. A good reader of
character will pick the man of purpose
from the crowd on the street eevry
time. Soms> may move slowly and others
with a*'rapid stride, but the way they
do it is what counts. The swing and
bearing give an impression of just what
a man does when at work.
Some day the young man who bears
himself well will walk right into the position he desires. He often leaves his
country' town with an awkward, shuffling gait and returns like the soldier
with the manly walk of enterprise. The
walk and bearing of success have come
with his rise in life. The town lis proud
of him and that quick, wide-awake
alertness lends a bright examplerto the
There is the man who walks slowly,
but with a sureness of step which tells
that he locks every door behind him
which ought to be locked.
Hero are two men who Bet a Bwift
paco to their places of work. One is the
business manager of a biff magazine and
the othor a soda fountain dispenser, but
they both excel Jn their line. And each
appreciates tho othor for a good mazarine and a good drink.

County of a Thousand Koys.
Monroo county is tho most unique
county in the State, if not in tho United
States. The larger portion of fcho county
is made up of a group of islands ov, as
thoy aro called, koys, both on the cast
and west coasts. Tlie only part of Monroo county on tho mainland is the Cape
Sable country, tho extreme south* ond
of tho United States on the mainland.
The larger portion of this land is what
is known as the Everglades, and hut a

Ity of Cape Sablo thoro aro largo bodies
of rich alluvial ftiml and a eonsldwablis

California, drove the" last spikes in, the
first continent girdling line on May
10, 1860, ths whole country, says Lea-
lie's Weekly, waB metaphorically looking on.
Things were very different forty
y��ars late; when, without any golden
spike, without the presence of any of
tho principal officers ot the company,
tho last rail on the Pacifio Coast extension of the Chicago, Milwaukee and
St. Paul railway, now known as tho
Chicago, Milwaukee and Pu-gei Sound
Hallway, waa laid at a point two miles
���east of Missoula, Mont., just before the
o o'clock whistlo blow oa March 31 last.
Thoro was no celebration, of any kind,
and the only speech was the remark of
ths contractor to the foreman, "Bill,
that's a good job." Tho length of tha
extension just completed from tha
Missouri River to Seattle and Tacoma
is a trifle over 1.400 Julias nud brings;
the total mileage of tho Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Boilway up to ���*>,-
000 miles. The completion of tho now
line was turned April 1$, 1906. No Pacific Coast line of any railway and no
line of equai length, crossing three mountain ranges has ever been constructed
withia the short period of throe years.
Duringv this period . 60,000,000 cubia
yards of material have been excavated,
260,000 yards of tunnel driven, twenty
nuk-s of badges erected, and 200,000
ions of eig-htj-fivc pound rails laid at
s total cost of SS5sO00,0QG. Tho ballasting of th��- now transcontinental line
will be completed about June 1, 1909,
and regular freight and looal passenger
service will bo established thereafter.
Tho new lino as far west as the oity of
Butte, Mon., has been in regular operation   since   September,  1903.

How Sparrows Came to New Zealand.
The Register publishes the following
paragraph quoted from its .issue of
June 23rd, 1859: "It appears from the
New Zealand papers that the country at
particular seasons is invaded by armies
of caterpillars, which clean off the grain
crops as completely as if mowed by a
scythe. With a view of counteracting
thi-* plague a novel importation has
been made. Mr. Brodie has shipped 300
sparrows on board the Swordfish, carefully selected from the^best hedgerows
in England. The food alone, he informs
us, put on board for them cost ��18.
This sparrow question has been a long
standing joke in Auckland, but the necessity to farmers of small birds to keep
down the grubs is admitted on all sides.
Mr. Brodie has already acclimatized the^
pheasant, which is abundant in the

Bridges in the Way. /
Tho davelopment of the traffic of thex
Allegheny River is said to be seriously

bridges spanning the stream. It apt-

Pittsburg and Allegheny hav�� different
clearances above water and most of
them are too low for the full develop*
ment of navigation, now that ths regulation of- the Allegheny River has
reached an advanced stage. An effort
is now being made to have the Government take some action with the object
of remedying the conditions, a-n-d the attention of the Secretary of War haa
been called to the matter with.-the hop*-*
of securing some "relief.A-The situation

The Cook's Fault.
On* of the most annoying things
about swans is that they live to. an extremely great age, and that it is impossible for the ordinary observer to
guess what thoir years may be. President " Grover Cleveland - once had an
amusing experience with some swans,
according to a writer in the American
Magazine. He had been in the south,-
shooting, and brought home a number
of wild swans, one of which ho sent to
each member of his Cabinet, and to
some other associates.
"All   the   boys,"  said   Air.  Cleveland,
"thanked me politely lor haying-, remembered them, but none of them seemed
to have much to say about how they enjoyed the birds.
"Carlisle, 1 found, had'his. cooked on
a night when he was dining out. _ Another, when I asked him, said he hoped
I wouldn't mind,'but he had sent his
home to his old mother. Thurber didn't
mention his bird at all for two days.
Finally I asked him about it.
"'Thurber, did you get that swan all
.right??-.".*  A'yy-A- -.Ayv.y   ,: \:";A-;.y,'
"'Yes, sir, oh, yes, I got the swan all
right, thank you,' and ho bent over his
desk and seemed very busyv      ;.   "
"Tine bird,' 1 said.
" 'Ye*s, sir, fine bird,', and he went oh
" 'En j oy eating him, Thurber V        .

said, 'Well, 8ir, 1' guess they didn't ccok

Well,  this thing of acting agreeable all the  time, especially on top of a hard day's  work, isn't my idea of what those Chicago University professors call a perfect  connubiality, and I consider it only the  fair thing that you know this now as  well as at any othar time.  All I hear around here is gas bills, how  frumpish the fat Mrs. Puttonlugs looks  in a directoire dress; how you saw some  shirt waists on sale for $1.38 to-day that  cost $2.98 at the beginning of the season; how you saw a man abusing ahoise'  on the street this morning, and you felt  like 'phoning to the Humane Society,  only you didn't know the Humane Society's number, and all such eseelsior  stuffing.  Does it ever enter your mind that  we're put here to grow mentally as weil  as physically? And is it your idea that  a woman fulfils the whole duty of a  wife when she sees to jt that the beds  arc made and the mantelpieces dusted  and the pot roast put on the range at  the. proper-,time, and all, that sort ot  tiling? Did you ever endeavor to reason  it out that it's sort of expected of a wile  that she be, onggtjeast try to be, something of an inwHectual companion to  her husband?  How's-that? -You've heard me say,  time and again, that 1 wouldn't live  with an intellectual woman for $8 a  minute.

Ths United States Msriae Hospital  service has already taken up the matter, and has sent out a great deal of  information about pellagra. This has  coused no little alarm, and it is probable  that many eases of false pellagra will  be reported. It is feared, -too, that the  general statement that eating mouldy  or musty corn s the cause of the disease  will work harm.  In the form of cornmeal or grits or  hominy corn is much more used in the  South 'than in any other part of the  country, and is the staple article of diet  , for the great** majority of the population. Moreover, because , df the boll  weevil the Southwestern States are  planting more corn this year than ever.  Louisiana will double its crops as com-  Honorod the Southerner.

Any pellagra scare that aroused a prejudice against corn as food would be a  serious blow to the farmers, who have  been- congratulating themselves on their  success in 'substituting this food crop  for cotton, and in thus raising their  own supplies.    '  Meridian is one of the best points  from,which to start the movement, for  it was there that the first definite ease  of pellagra was traced to the South.  Then, too, Meridian has treated more,  cases of pellagra than any other city.  Twenty-one cases have been brought to  its hospital from^the neighboring country. Of the patients nine have died  and one has been discharged as cured,  while eleven still remain in the hospital.  The disease was accidentally stumbled on less than a year ago. The" first  case was reported sand treated > as"  eczema. In the second^ ease, reported in  September of last year, the patient was  a young woman of distinguished family,  a daughter. ofv ex-Justice Thomas H.  Woods, of the ��������� Mississippi Supreme  Court. .She was treated by several phy  camel to the Argentine mule.  Out from'Luderitzbusbt the railway ribbons  to Keeimanshoop. Prom Swakopmund, higher  uo tho coast, tbe railway runs inland to  Windhuk. and it is hoped that the near future will see the two inland termini linked  together and the gest and most msrtile parts  of the country opened  up thereby.  But the cobt of maintaining the line be-,  twenn Luderitzbucht and Keetmanshoop has  proved enormous. Water has to be carried  in trucks. Native men and women are employed continually in' keeping the sand off  the line, which but for their incessant shovelling would disappear as effectually as if dropped in mid ocean. This awful desert waste  is twin sister to the sea in its "hunger for  humrn life. Restless, changing, wild, weirdly seductive, it has tortured and played with  human life, conquering always. ' It is an eerie  and ghastly sight to see the oxen lying  dead in their thousands, who'e in skin and  bone, untouched by wolf 'or vulture. Horses  mules, pxeu and men too the desert claims.  With some the wind deals mercifully, wreathing tfrem in  her winding sheet of sand.  A striking feature of the railway construction in German Southwest Africa is ,that  white the railways of the north have a gauge  for toylike trains, those of the south are of  the same guage as the Cape Government  railways. And already the Germans are talking openly of. jinking up with . the Cape  Colony in the near'future, ir is to be honed  that colonial and imperial "policy combined  wili prevent sjtch a-posslbillty.-but it is an  indication of the long headed policy which  actuates the German Colonial, Office. *  Boat Hauled Through Surf by Horses.

By thia time n,crowd of  cottagers had gathered and when the  boat caino into the breakers, about 25  of these waded into the surf and lent a  hand in pulling the boat ashore.

He'went home. LastX  fall, in September, he'came to Meridian "  a^ain.   The 'disease had returned in   ' a A  more  violent    form   and   attacked his  brain.   He suffered from'insomniaj his  miiid became disordered, and he died in  much suffering. It was about the same '  timo that -the second case, that of Miss,  Stio Woods,   was   discovered*   and   the  malady was identified.  There  was much  in Freeman's story  wliich shed light on the subiect and mav   .  cause some modifications' in the opinions  as to the oiigin of the pellagra.   Free- >  man was 56 and had run a grist or corn-  meal mill until      five years before his -  deoth.   iie had lived almost exclusively  on corn instead oT wheat brad. It was   -  his practfee to  eat uncooked cemmeal  almost ddily at the mill and he carried  aiound  a  pocketful      of corn kernels,  which he ^nibbled on from time to time,'  as  he thought- it helped  the heartburn  from   which   he   suffered. His   case   '  throws a great deal of responsibility on  corn as the cause af pellagra, but sug- -  gests at the same time the possibility-,  that it may fcs due to raw or .uncooked  corn or meal as well as musty meal, or  to too exclusive a corn diet in hot leather.

There Is no suggestion by the physicians that pellagra is  contagious, although it wus called of old  "Lombardy leprosy," bub the concidcnce  is arousing attention in Mississippi,  where tho Italian laborer is very un-  pomilur in certain circles.
