D*  Buuce arrived in town last Friday and  returned home on Monday's train. It  is quito probable that Mr. Lewis may  locate at Creston in tne near future. '*  Have you joined Winter's *' Oreston  Suit and ProBsiug Olub?" of which full  Mr. J. Heath, who hasN probably had  more experience in the handling of bees  than any other man in the valley, ia an  enthusiast regarding bee culture in the  Crestoca District.  He says thefc this particular district  appeal's to be especially adapted for  bees The Dutch clover commonly  known as the small white clover crows'  in great abundance in this valley and  this particular kind of clover is the very  best* thing for the bees. /     *  Ir-t addition  the Creston Dis'.riot is  comparatively free of wind and has a  great de il of sunshine both of which  awi  factors  favorable   for   beeB.   "Mr.  Hoath say s that when you have half a*  dczen hives, the artificial raising' can  then b\ commenced.  'He strongly ree-'  ommendfi that  new  beginners   shonld  look"* uf tor the brood and. see that it~is  healthy.     Regarding  hives  be  would  suggest the Standard English hive for  use. - Theae hives of the* old country'are"  about  fourteen  and "a^half inches in  length,   whilo in Canada the frames are  much longer.   It takes ten frames to  make a square. ' Under^ ordinary conditions each hive should produce 40 lbs.���������  of surplus honpy per year.  }    The culture of bees, according to Mr.  Heath, - is a most lucurative    pastime  and he expects to embark in the undertaking ,himself this spring.   With  an  abundtunce of clover nnd a most admirable oii mate, Mr Heath says that Ores-  ton Di8(;riot offers great inducements for  new beginners in this industry.

O. industry./.     ^   *-l  The Canadian or so called Canadian  representatives in tbe negotiations', have  been completely fooled by their astute  American opponents. The question  naturally arises, why were tha negotiations ever entered upon at all? We  were going on very nicely, under the old  tariff. An American capitalist who  Wished to avail himself of our natural  resources, was rightly compelled to  oome to Canada, bringing his money  with him, and build his factories and  pay out wages iu the Dominion ,aasist  in the building up,of our towns and the  formation of a great home market for  our farmers and producers. That is the  real truo Canadian policy, the only Canadian polioy, but it-was not good enough  for Sir Wilfred and his narrow minded  eastern confederates. >  Sir Wilfred has hit B. O below the  belt beforo, and on ovory possible oo*  oasion, in the oase ot Paolflo OoaBt' fls h*  ories questions, the Alaskan sealing, tho  Oriental immigration problem, and  ovory other instanoo in whioh he has  been handling matters pertaining to B.  O. he has taken the opportunity to knock  our interests. Once in a life time, he  takes a fiying trip' through our empire  to find out where he can get in his nest  worst' blow. ,  v"  .'' v *     l     <.  - We hope- that steps can he taken  throughout the' province to show by  means; of resolutions and protests; tbat  'WdTuBTIally aware of tha game whioh is  being played at Ottawa, where our  moBt vital interests are made the pawns  in every diplomatic enoonnter.  Sir Wilfred end his crowd of heelers  have been in power at Ottawa too long,  alike ins ths iascrcsis cf the wesc and  the interests of the Dominion.  Silver tongued orators, and neat after  dinner speakers, are no doubt asset* of  some small value, but when for suoh a  purely social combination of qualities,  we are aaked to pay a price which involves the handing over of onr natural  resources and industries to the truec  promoter? of an alien country, th@& wo  say emphatically that the price ia too  high for us to pay.  Canada is greater than Sir Wilfred  Laurier, and the sooner we have at  Ottawa a representative of the true  economic interests of Canadian business  life, and the better it will be, not only  tor British Columbia, bnt for the whole  Dominion.  An enjoyable dsnee waa held is the  ^asjrosM*i������e~St������ii on Auesaay evening  last, January 31, under the auspices of  W. Burton of the Burton Hotel. The  music was of the best and some .thirty  couples were en the floor at one time.  This waa a most successful dance in all  respects and all wno were preannt enjoyed themselves to the limit. s ''*  It has been decided to hold the Farmers' Institute meetings hereafter sa fihe  third Friday of each month, while the  Fruit Growers' Association will* meet  on tbe second Friday of eaoh month.  Miss Annie Ryckman-left on Monday  last for Prairie Creek vnear Oranbrook  where she wiil visit her sister. Miss  Ryokman expects to return to Creston  again in March.  O.

There has been exhibited before the  Royal Society of London a form of  microscope, the invention of Prof.  Gordon, hy means of which enormous  magnification of an object can, it is  stated, be attained without the blemishes due to optical causes that formerly marred such images, says Harper's Weekly.  W,e may suppose that the enlarged  image of an object is received from a  microscope lens ,upon a ground-glass  focusing screen; and that then anoth-  ed microscope is employed still further  to enlarge the image so formed. This  is, of course, quite feasible, but the  grain of the glass would be magnified  together with the image and would  vitiate the result. Prof. Gordon uses  a .translucent screen of the finest possible texture, .and he causes it to ba  kept in continual motion while the  object is being viewed or photographed. By this means the grain of the  screen is eliminated and the greatly  magnified image of the object, alone  seen. Specimens magnified to the extent of ten thousand diameters were  shown as proof of the efficacy of the  method adopted.  Jenny Llnd'a Charm.  Tho nnnlvorsary of the death o!

"Of eoarse sae had learned from lie-  assistant that he had returned from his  vacation on Thursday and naturally concluded that a" teacher coining home aftei  a season's absence would have errands to  take him downtown between that day  and the opening of school.  '"Downtown? Why, yes, I was downtown,' the man replied, slowly.  "Now the very manner of his reply  showed her immediately that he had not  been very far downtown. He had been  doubtful if, indeed, it could properly be  called downtown. Therefore she decided  to. stick it somewhere about the middle  of the eity aud went on:  " Tes, I see you at Fifty-ninth street.'  "If the teacher had said he wasn't on  that street she could probably ^ Jiave  drawn out the fact that he had passed  it and would have said that she saw him  just in the moment of passing. However,  in tliis ease the guess was a fine one,  and the man was simply stunned.  " 'On you tell me what part of Fifty-  nir.ch street?' he asked.

She likewise  concluded that he had visited the Board  of Education at Fifty-ninth street and  Park avenue, but to say this would 'be  risking too much. Again she hit safely  midway, and announced that the spirit  revealed him to her at the corner of  Fifty-ninth street and Lexington avenue,  without, however, stating that he was  conducting business there or merely passing.  Again the teacher was simply stunned,  for it so happened thathe had not been  who seemed to be rather nervous.   After  a while he whispered to me:  "'Say do vou believe in this thing?  Do you expect a message?'  "'I don't know,' 1 replied, uncertainly.  "The man went on then to inform me  that he had sever been to a placs of the  sort before and tbat he didn't , really  think he would get a message.  "/Have you  any one   in   the    spirit  world from whom you could get a communication?' he asked.  - " Well, there's my sister Alice/ I said.  Of course I have no sister Alice.

'That's a  message for me.   Just think of it!"  "Well, he went up to the stage and  whispered with the spirit, who had called him, and I thought to myself that it  was about time now for sister Alice to  appear. Sure enough,!the* very next  spirit to step from the cabinet "was a  tall spectre, who wanted Dr. Lewis. And  when I went up and inquired her name  she informed me that she waa Alice, and  by skilful questioning I led her to recollect many things in our past lives  which Had never happened.'*    -    -  Dr. Lewis learned the BecTet of spirit  photographs from a medium who had  fallen into a trap. He explains that the  object cf the institute is not only to expose fraud, but "scientifically to classify  and analyze phenomena as are usually  called psychic, hypnotic or spiritualistic,  with the intention of determining their  real nature."  ^'���������We^iU suppose that a man is sitting ' ������* .**���������?_ Board'of Education, but had done  next to' the -woman who brought the ring,  Well, every Medium knows that a man  seldom goea alone to a seance, and in  nine cases out of ten the woman is nis  ���������wife.

Ethelbert Talbot, new bishop of central Pennsylvania, and for year3 the  bishop of Wyoming and Idaho in the  early days of that region, gives many  an-anecdote in his entertaining* book of  reminiscences, "My People of the Plainb."  It both pleased and amused him to notice the stage drivers���������-a class accustomed to the use of free profanity���������were  wont to be respectful and clean spoken  in his present, and that when one day  chance let slip an oath he followed it  by profane apologies; and he gives, an  illustrative anecdote from the experiences of Bishop lkrkson on the plains of  Nebraska.  One occasion the bishop was due to  preach at a certain town on the prairies  of Nebraska, "ft was'in the spring and  the mud..was up to the hubs.in'places.  Already it'.was growing dark and the  lights of the village which the bishop  was trying to reach seemed still a long  way off.. He became a little nervous lest  he should be late for his appointment.  Just then they encountered a mud hole,  and the ��������� stage coach stuck fast. The  driver laid on the lash, but in vain; the  horses would not move. The bishop was  on the box with the driver, who was  getting-desperate.,' Unable to, stand it  any longer, he turned to the bishop and  said:    ������     :  ' "Do -you  see those  wheelers looking  back at'me?"' -  rlf\������  "Bishop, you know I have always tried  toi treat you right, arid I respect yonr  cloth. But do you say you want to  preach in that there town to-night?"  ������ "Of course I do, Harry. Why don't  you *whip your horses?"  "Whip 'em, bishop! Ain't I heen a-  whippin? them in an effort to get you  there or bust? What do you say, you  must 'preach there to-night?"  ' "Of course. I must."  , "Woll, bishop, I ask it just once.' You  sec. these horses are used to my style  of talkin' to 'em. I know its' a bad  habit, and I know its' wrong, but will  you please give me a dispensation just  thia one time? If you will I'll get you  thero' or bust. ��������� What do you sav,  bishop?"  "Well, Harry, I suppose -I'll have to.

Ida M. Tarbell's Lincoln article in the  February number of the American Magazine is easily the most alluring story of  the month. It is simply a narrative of  the impression Lincoln made on his fellow townsmen in Springfield during the  years before the war. The story is told  by a man who knew Lincoln intimately  throughout the whole period. Here is a  picture of Lincoln's last appearance in  Springfield:  "Of course he seemed pretty cheerful  always.   He wa'nt no man to show out  all he felt.   Lots of them little stuck-up  chaps that came out here to talk to him  said, solemly as owls, 'He' don't realize  the gravity of the situation.'      Them's  their weds, 'Gravity of the situation.'  Think of that, Mr.  Lincoln  not realizing.    They ought to heard him talk to  ui the night he went away.    I'll never,  forgit   that   speech���������nor any man who  heard it. ' I can see him now just how  Iih looked, standin' there on the end of  his -*car.    He'd been shakin' hands with  the  crowd  in  the  depot, laughing  and  talking, just like himself, but when he  got into that car he seemed suddenly to  he all changed.   You neevr seen a face  so sad in all the world . Ltell you he  had woe in his heart that minute, woe.  He knew he was ieavin' up for good,  nuthin' else   could   explain the way he  looked and what he said.    He knew he  never was coming back  alive.    It was  rainin'  hard, but    when    we  saw him  standin' there in  bare head, his great,  big    eyes    lookin'  at us  so lovin' and  mournful, every man of us took off his  hat, just as if he'd been in church.   You  never   heard   hini   make    a speech, of  course?      You missed a lot.   < Curious  voice.

Ma says,, it makes her nervous to hear  me talk about him such nights, but I  can't help it; just have to let out.  "He stood a minute lookin' at us, and  then he began to talk. There ain't a  man in this town that heard him that  ever forgot what he said, but I don't believe there's a man that 'ever said it  over out loud���������he couldn't without cry-  in'. He just talked to us that time out  of his heart. Somehow we felt all of  a suddint how we loved him and how  ho loved us. We hadn't taken and  stock in all that talk about his hcin'  killed, hut when he said he was goin'  away not knowin' where or whether  ever he would return I just got cold all  over.

WASH TKE EYES EVERY DAY.  Sensible    Advice    From an   Oculist to  Dwellers in Cities.  "Don't be careless of the eyes dui-  ing cold weather. Batlie xiiom frequently.  Protest them from both wind and diibV,  particularly the latter, wliich I -believe  causes most of the inflamed cyabaila  and swollen lids that are now so prevsv-  lent," say* Dr. George Houston Jiell, prominent occulist.  ''If it is necessary ito go out when  the air is full of dusl���������as with ao many  thousand working women, in the city��������� ������  want to advise utiem to take aii possible  precautious and, for their own coralort,  to remember these don'ts:  "Don't keep the eyes open when passing through a cloud of dust. If it is not  possible to shut the lids, then turn the  back or side of the head so tliat the- particles will not fly directly into the eye*,  or if in a crowd, where there would be  danger of closing the eyes, place the.  hand, a paper ot wine guard 'a. few iwhea  'from the optics to shield them and to  keep out the dirt.  "Don't rub the eyes after going;  through a cloud of dust, for thb action  has a tendency to irritate the eyeball  by working fine pieces of metal, dirt,  etc., into the corner. If particles in the  eyes cause discomfort or pain, close the  lid and let the water that constantly  bathes the eyeballs have a chance to  wash out the foreign ma-ttcy.  "If after several minutes the substance  is ��������� not dislodged, have a. druggist take  out the dirt with a fine camel's hair  brush or wash out the eye with a saturate solution of boric acid, which is a  soothing antiseptic that . wiill help to  clear away any* redness of the eyiehall  that usually follows the irritation caused when diirt sticks to the cornea,, If  boric acid is not to be had, use salt  water.  "Either the acid or water may be  dropped into the eye from a spoon,* hyfc  best plan to give tihe eyeball a thorough  washing is to use a regulation eyecup  that fits tightly over the lid������ and; mak������*������  possible a complete bath.  "For those who have had no experience  with the use of an eye cup I wont to  eay that it should be about three-quarters full before it is placed-directly over  the eye with the lids closed. Tlie head  must be.thrown back when tihe glass is  turned upside down and then the lids  opened and the eyeball rolled around.  This,operation should last but a few seconds and will ordinarily bring immediate relief.  "Whether or not there aie particles of  dirt, etc.. on the eyeballs that cause pain  I  think  it advisable  to  wash  out  the  eyes, especiail on windy days,, after coming into a house or office for then the?  grity specks will be cleaned away, the  eyes left fresh ajid bright looking and  there can be no danger of infection from  germs contained in the dust. Use a solution of boric acid for these: washings and  if convenient an, eye cup.  ''I wish I could make women and  men, too understand that it is quite as  essential to wash out the eyes when  they axe full of dirt as it is to cleanse  the hands when they are soiled.  "Everyone for hygienic reasons should  .wash out the eyes with" a 5 per cent  solution of boric acid each rabfning'and  every night before retriing, for this hath  not only cleamses them but soothes and  allays slight inflammation caused front  cold or from strong winds and incidentally strengthens the~ eyeballs.  "When ecessary to take .long walks  or drives in the face of high winds T  think the best and nafestest plan is to  wear smoked or green glasses that will  break tho force of the wind before it  reaches thti sensitive eyeballs. These  glasss may not be becoming but I know  ot many cases .where they* have saved  the wearer untold suffering from.inflammation,"���������Washington- Star.

Address all communica  viuuato the    editor  BOARD OF TRADE MEET  There was a fair attendance of members of tlie Creston  Board of Trade, in tie Speers' Halt on Wednesday Feb.  ist- At 9 p. m., Vice President S. A. Speers took tbe  chair, in tbe unavoidable absence of President C. O.  Rodgers. #  Various communications were read and ordered  answered ot fyled. Amotion strongly condemning tbe  proposed reciprocity agreement between tbe United. States  and Canada, and especially the clauses relating to fruit and  lumber, gave rise to an interesting discussion. Tbe  members of the Board were unanimous in describing the  proposals as a stab in the back for British Goluiriljjia., and  the opinion of the fruit-growers was expressed in no  uncertain manner by F.J. Rose, W. V. Jacksoii, R^ S.  Bevan and others. On a suggestion by -R.-.G. Scruton  supported by Guy Lowenburg, it was decided to wire the  protest to Ottawa, and also communicate the same to  Premier McBride, the Nelson Board of Trade, and the  Associated Boards. ���������  . -  The   matter  of  the  payment for? apples  sent to the  Vancouver Show, came  before  the  Board.    After  a  long  discussion the Board decided  to again write  the treasurer,  requesting paymeut at the rate of $3 per box, as promised to  the growers    by    Mr.  Cockle.        At  the  same time the  .REVIEW was requested to announce, for the information' of  the  ranchers    from    whom apples were obtained on the  promise of payment at $3.,that the Creston Board  of Trade  is prepared to pay and will pay, $3 per box  for the apples,  in spite of the fact that the Boar4<fhave up  to  the present,  only been paid at tbe rate of $1.75 N for such apples by the  Joint Exhibit Board, and altho the Creston Board  has paid  out $200. to the Joint Board, for tbe Creston portion  of the  National Apple Show  exhibit;   the  Creston   Board is  not  responsible for the prices premised  by  the  Agent of the  Joint Exhibit,    but will  make up  the difference to  the  ranchers who desire same, and thus close the matter out.  After votes of thanks to the Entertainment Committee  for their good work in connection with the banquet, and to  3. A. Speers and the various lodges for the use of the lodge  room for the Associated Boards meetings, the meeting wat  adjourned at 10 p.m.  v The following is the exact wording of the resolution oi  protest against the proposed reciprocity agreement-Whereas  the proposed reciprocity agreement introduced by the Hon.  Mr. Fielding will inflict a severe blow to the fruit and lumbering interests of this Province without giving any equivalent; and whereas the fruit industry is in its infancy and  requires fostering;and whereas the fostering of these industries is of vital importance to the welfare of this province;  and whereas the proposed agreement would . impair the  capital investment of those interested in these industries;  tiow be it resolved that this Board strongly condemns the  proposed agreement as far as it applies to these industries,  and directs that copies of this resolution be forwarded to  Premier McBride, Mr. Burrell, A. S. Goodeve and Senator  Hewitt Bostock, urging them to act in the matter, and that  copies of this resolution be also sent to the members of the  Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia.

Tho  welding takes place at these points and  a   at the centre of the splice, where aVthiri  preceding  settlement of the Btreet railway question  in Chicago would lead us rather too far  into politics. With the details of a  Iiotly contested campaign fresh in his  memory, the reader has doubtless had  enough of arguments for and against  "'immediate municipal ownership."  ; Rehabilitation is now a fact in process  of accomplishment. A great amount of  track reconstruction has been completed.  Much remains to be done, but progress  up to the present time has "been so satisfactory as to raise the hope that all our  dreams of rehabilitation are at last to  be realized.  There are many interesting;, features  connected with the work���������the type of  construction used, the methods of handling .the work and. taking care, of traffic,  and hist and; perhaps most interes'mg of  all,;,the machines with which" the work  is done.

When one recalls that perhaps, after all, the day of  the underground trolley is not far distant, and that then much* of this first  class construction must "be ��������� torn out, lie  type of construction  seems,  indeed,   to  "be too good.  An inspection wilt make clear the de-  iails of this construction. The old track  is first removed and an excavation made  to a'ctepth'.bf ��������� about twelve inches below  the bottom of the, tie. The new track  then is put in pla.ee.- resting on small  wooden blocks arid adjusted to the exact  elevation ..-.'���������.required.- Concrete is placed  "under and around the ties to a depth  of three-incWs above the top of tie.   In  alternating  strip of soft steel is dropped inAbetween  the splice and the rail.   Each splice is  thus welded to the rail at threefpoints,;  the end welds talking all the longitudinal stress and the three welds'.acting  together to supply vertical stiffnessA  ELECTRIC POWER    OPERATES rjrflK  .y;;CRANE.

The question is often asked as to how  the expansion amd contraction is takjen  care of in a long Yind'ot welded rj^iil.  This difficulty is more^. apparent than  real. It is merely a matter of the  stresses developed in the rail and splices  through changes in temperature. It  sliould be borne in mind^that this 'rail ig  imbedded in concrete and paving, and  that the temperature changes are not  so groat as in a rail exposed to the air.  EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION 1G-  ������������������v -*     ������������������. NORED. -  The fact that: the rays of the sun can  strike only tlie; top of the rail is alone  sufficient *to explain in great part tlie  small tendency to expansion. Held rigidly in line by ..the .concrete;.and paving,  there is no opportunity for the lateral  displacement or "kinking" that sometimes occurs on a steam railway.,  It is; estimated thnt in rails ���������'tints '-situated the maximum possible Rtross duo  to temperatureichanges in this climate  is 10,200 pounds per. square., inch.; This  stress, is about hnlf th'e /olnstic limit of  steel and only about dndVfourtli its'lilti-  ���������iiiatc strength. Owing" to- the adhesion  of the.concrete in which it.

Among the f,liners" recently  there was a reporter for the Herald,  dressed to fit the part of half-starved  raw recruit from the west.  Like living exponents of all the sentiments that move tho world���������save one,  and the gieatest, happiness���������these men  stand theie night after night giving  vent to their feelings and confiding  ..in. each other. To an outsider these tattered derelicts of the streets display only  one 'side of their characters���������the forlorn one; To a fellow "liner", many angles are shovvn. With pathos predominating, discontent, despair, deception and  even huinor ara curiously blended. The  men who "work" both bread lines and  sometimes complete four and five pounds  in the second are perhaps'the most conspicuous, >��������� but* not the most numerous  to one .who mixes in>as of-their own  kind. Through nothing but laziness these  men use this' means to au end that  Bpells subsistence without, work.  "REPEATER'S" PoOB START.  Next to one of these the reporter first  fell-into line. The mau had only hurriedly fled from some "dive" in Chinatown, where he spent hia leisure mom-  ents-^-practically all his time. He explained in his own picturesque verna-  jp������lar|;rJhow there- waa a* call .'for the  "bread;liners" in his own particular  habitat at half-pasc twelve o'clock ev-  ery^morning. He ..expressed his regret  that ythe call had been! late on that par-  ticulafvmorning, as a'J:esult of which he  was toward the aftef end of the line.  He embroidered his pique with all the  trimmings of-the profanity of the under-  grooye.fAXiis one solace was^that three  lapsVseeined to be within the ifcnge of  possibility, while-, his. record of five  rounds in one night looked to be far  out of reach on that occasion considering  his poor Btort.  ���������*��������� -The man in ftont was'questioned* about  jobs. Iu kind he was tho mate of the  Chinatown habitue. Being easily drawn  into conversation, he 6xplained that  work and existence in New York were  far A from being essentially ������\ide, partners. He related, as _he thought to a  "green one," that if'ono *were familiar  with the ropes ono need never worry  about being hungry' in Manhattan.  "Kid," ho rambled on, "this is tho  softest town there is, and I'm a hey guy,  on the hobo circuit. Take it from me���������  dig for Manhattan in tho winter. If  yb got a nickel in yer pocket just sleep  in any booze joint along the Bowery.  HOW TO GET JOBS.  In Bpitc of this wizard of tho easy  life's antipathy for work, tho'.t"osti������  mony of other more willing men was  that it was impossible. to secure a job  in New York. At that time the only possible employment for these poor, cold,  half clad: aud quarter fed men ���������was ahoy-  oiling suow. Tho "lincye'*"'- dlmb'st'- to a  man  Bhicd'at thoHo positiouB.

His neighbor this trip was  a poor soul on the down slide of life who  vindicated the establishment of a bread  line. A question was put to him about  charitable institutions and the free lodging houses in New Yoik. He was conversant with the topic and fluent in his  talk. His opinion ran something like  this:  of bird it was, but I was determined  to capture it. The wingB beet me "back,  but I kept up the battle until Mr. Cork-  ran arrived and we tied the bird. Even  after pinioning its wings it was hard  to hold it, as itB strength was great.  We finally got a piece of rope and tied  the legs together. Later a coop" was  made arid we placed the bird in it/'  Shorly after the steamer docked at  Light street the swan was sent to tho  office of Assistant General Manager A.  H. Seth, of the- company. The office  force waB attracted'by the big bird, and  when it was measured it was found to  bo 89 inches from tip to tip "of. its wings  and it stood 55 inches high. Mr. Seth  presented tho bird to the zoo at.' Druid  Hill Park.���������From the Baltimora Sun.  o ��������� m     ���������  '   ARTIST'S LUCKY NUMBER.  "Charities ain't much good, boy.

In conclusion this old veteran���������for he  bore the burden of years���������said witli grave  dignity and a humanitarian spirit, indicative of a willingness to help his fellow:  "Boy, if I were you I'd get out of this  town.

He was a versatile gentleman, having been a cow puncher on the  O G X'X "ranch in Texas, a, performer in  Young Buffalo Bill's showsVJan elevator  boy and a~" dishwasher. Ybtj with' tlSs  wealth of experience as a foundation Jim  and his accomplishments could not seem  to fit into the cramped dimensions of  any job New York had to offer. He related in his own way a strange experi-'  ence in his quest for any sort of .work���������  a sort of Wild West clipping inoculated  n a Brooklyn vacant lot.  "The otber day I. was strollin' along,  near1 the edge of Brooklyn," he began. "I  sees a loose cow.

He would drop a worm into the water  and show how it wriggled. Then,  dropping it into th'e whisky, he would  exclaim:  "There! One convulsive shudder  and it is all over." .5  "Haud on, there, maister! Are you  sure 'tis the liquor killed the puir  worm?" a voice in the audience  asked.  "Quite sure, my friend," replied  the lecturer.   "No doubt whatever."  "A weel, then, just pass over tbe  whusky; I'm bothered wi' worms."  Svsifal s  WWVKS  He was impressed  .

He had a villa that  J was his particular joy, and ono evening, when he was entertaining a party  of friends there, a young man indulged too freely. When the unfortunate  fell asleep in the billiard room, two  smiling attendants appeared and carried him to bed. The next morning  the other guests were awakened by  the host in person, and conducted to  a peephole through which they sow  the young man lying asleep on a  white plastered floor. The ceiling was  carpeted and the various articles of  bedroom furniture were securely fastened to it and hanging downward.  The young man awoke and with a cry  of terror grasped a chandelier that  came up through the plastered floor.  "They all do it," cried the host, with  a laugh, "every man of them grabs  that chandelier lest he should fall up  to the ceiling."���������Argonaut.

Kitchener Tells of   Labor of   Reconstructing Soudanese Metropolis.  Lord Kitchener presided at a recent  sitting of the Town-Planning Conference in London, when a paper was  read describing the splendid city  which, since the Khalifa's power was  smashed, has- -been raised da the  ruins of old Khartoum, and also the  work of reconstructing Omdunnan on  modern lines. The paper, written by  Mr. W. H. McLean (municipal engineer, Khartoum), was read in his absence, pointed out that the successful  Omdurman scheme waa in essence  that provided for England by Mr.  John Burns.  Lord Kitchener said he well remembered the difficulty df the problem how best to evolve, out of the  ruins left by the Dervishes, a practical reconstruction of Khartoum on  sanitary lines. First, careful consideration had to be given to the susceptibilities of a .naturally uneducated  forpign population, to whose conservative mindr, most modern regulations were repugnant. No trouble of  that kind had, however, arisen, and  the natives had agreed to the propositions* and there was no doubt  that the reasonable regulations enforced meant5-increased length of life  and increased prosperity. Those who  knew, Khartoum in the old days  would-recognize that a revolution had  been effected.  The old Khartoum was an African*  ppsthouse in which every tropical  disease1 thrived and ran rampant.  Last year there were only eleven  cases of malaria \in a population of  50,000. He did not think such results  had been achieved in any other British dependency, and they were a  proof of the thorough efficiency of the  country.  Mr. McLean's paper mentioned that-  in 1899, the year after the culmination of the Nile campaign, the revenue for the whole of the Soudan  was estimated at only $40,000, which  showed a state of destitution for a  country nearly as large as Europe.  When this was compared with the ������  present revenue of over $5(000,000, I  the progress made was apparent.  Municipal steam tramways were running in Khar,toum from the central  to outside districts. It was anticipated that the city would ultimately  extend to the west and tp the south,  and, as this was Government land,  it seemed assured that the extensions  would be made in accordance with  the existing system of planning. A  suburb might also be built at Burri  to the east of the waterworks.  Stick To Iti  Henry Ide, appointed the governor-  general of the Philippine Islands by  President Roosevelt, has what he calls  a one-rule course of conduct for a  successful life.    It reads like this:  "If you make a good resolution���������  stick to jt.  "If you have a good thought���������stick  to it.  "If you have a worthy friendship���������i  stick to it. J  "If you have an ambition���������stick to  it.  "If you have a hard task���������stick  to it.  "If you have a good book���������stick to  it.'  "If^you want more friends���������stick to  it.  "If you have anything to do���������stick  to it."  Which, when they are all summed,  get into the one small sentence:  "Stick to it."  Cold-Sores  Are your hands chapped, cracked  or sore? Have you "cold cracks"  which open and bleed when the skin  is drawn tight? Have you a cold  sore, frost bite, chilblains, or a "raw"  place, which at times makes it agony  for you to go about your household  duties ? If so, Zam-Buk will give you  relief, and will heal the frost-damaged  skin. Anoint the sore places at night,  Zam-Buk's rich healing essences will  sink into the -wounds, end the smarting, and will .heal quickly.  Mrs. Yellen, of Portland, says : "My  hands wer������ ������o Bore and cracked that it  was isgony to put them near water.  When I did so'they would smart and  barn as if I had scalded them., 1 seemed  guiie unable to get relief from anything  X pat on them until I tried Zam-Buk,  ana it succeeded when all else had  failed.'
