ORKSTON RjtSOtUTION RB   OOAIi   RATES  The Creston resolution regarding tbe  recent increase in tho price of coal, due  in port to tho inorease in tho rate by  tho O.P.R., wns next oonsidored. Mr.  O. O. Rodgers spoko very strongly in  favor of somo notion being taken, and  was ably supported by R. S. Bevan.  - R. B, iHnldane, as representing tho  O.P.R., wns requosfcod to oullghfcon the  of opinion that there was a misunderstanding. The rates on coal had recently been overhauled and settled by  ths Railway Commission. The rates as  a rssnit and ss a whole hsd bs?s ss-  uuCod, bnt juo'tubciugd being the most  distant point of supply, rates were  figured out proportionately, and the  rate from Lethbridge was raised.  . A long discussion followed, well sustained by the Creston delegates. Mr.  O. O. Rodgers pointed ont that coal is a  basic necessity, and that the rata had  been raised, resulting in an inorease in  the price of coal to consumers, who in a  few years wonld be totally dependent  upon coal for fuel.  Mr. G. O. Buchanan made a clever  speech, giving figures showing that the  cost of coal in Kaslo was constantly  rising, and something ahorld be done to  investigate the matter fully and find out  who was benefitting by tbe high prices  of fuel. It, was elicited tbat the coaBt  cities were also being cinched by high  prices of coal, and a commission was  being appointed by tbe Provincial government, to go fully into the matter. In  the end the Resolution Committee were,  requested tc make a; suitable resolution  for submission to the Convention asking  for the appointment of a provinoial  government commission- to investigate  the prices ^ at whioh coal is now being  :OTppliea������^tk?onghW^^^^^?g������^ ^pd  tp report as to by what means a redaction of such prices can be brought  about.���������Carried unanimously.  * * 1  Tslbphone Question  Mr. O. O. Rodgers then moved the  cannni? fhvsofrjw* vssslstion. ssd said that  Creston needed communication by telephone with outside points, especially  Nelson, whose merchants' are losing  trade for lack of suoh communication.  This oan only be done by tho Government, and the resolution calls upon tbe  Government to take over the control of  the publio telephones' and make tbe  necessary extensions to seonro an  effioient service throughout the province.  tilr. Lowenberg seconded the resolution.  Seo.-treoBurer Mackenzie drew attention to the f aot that previous resolutions  to tho same effect had been passed, but  the Provinoial government socm to be  loth to tako notion in the matter, The  resolution was carried unanimously.  After difiouaaioii, Kaslo resolution No.'  1, relating to the proposed road via Earl  Grey Pans, was amended on a motion  by T. G. Prootor, seconded by A. B.  Fenwiok. The remainder of tho Kaslo  resolutions wero unanimously adopted,  charter.  GfSBFZiOW XjAKD  On Kaslo sresolstioa 2Te. 9, Tt&sAisg  orerxiow waters ot Kootenay juries, Mr.  O. O. Rodgers drew attention to ths foot  that 60,000 acres of land in the country  adjacent to the Creston valley,. th������  finest land in the world, would bo reclaimed if snch a scheme' could be carried ont. A syndicate of American  capitalists raised the necessary fonds  to carry out the wosk, proposing to  relieve the high -water by assisting the  water off by workings at tbe Harrow*  below Nelson and Proctor. This is a>  feasible proposition, and eoaaa day,  sooner or later, the vrork 'will ������s gene.

The streets are generally *w������m>e by  machines, and tae sidewalks are  cleaned by hand brooms, between 4  and 7 o'cio'ck a- ni.. when the \eh':c-*ihir  travel is light. The streets., are first  watered by sprinkling ci'rrs and then  promptly swept by hors.j brooms, and  then men with brooms ��������� or shovels or,  if the weather is wet squeegees, pile  tlie material.  ROLE OF TIIE CONTRACTOR.  House refuse is collected by contract, but with the aid of one ragpicker and two helpers in the employ  of the eity. Ragpickers, gene^Ily  women, overhaul the re.'uao on the  sidewalk during the operations oi the  street cleaning department before the  collecting carts arrive. After the carts  have passed, the gutters are cleaned of  the wastes collected hy the street cleaning operations. Street dirt which can  be shoveled is hauled iiway in carts j  the rest is flushed into the sewers.  Gutter flushing is onu ot the most  prominent;features of Paris street cleaning, the water being obtained from  hydrants'"'concealed beneath the sid-o-  wallcs. When the water is turned on it  usually flows in one way or-the otlici  along the street according to the grade  ���������iw*ry ,b us fC TS* I c jT' ^giance to His Guidance a  as not untd the advent of the to His oower, nnd Adso th  y0SK^'   V,"fh JollG���������?,. ?**    fence which makes  them  whieli they are later hauled away by-  carts drawn by good looking horses.  The carts for collecting the refuse are  large, high, open and built, after the  common French custom, with two wheels  and provision for horses harnessed tandem. Two or three men accompany  each cart, one remaining inside and the  others throwing the receptacles in to  him to overturn and empty. Even here  there is some picking done, desirable  matters being placed in separate bags  or baskets hanging on the outside of  the cart. The refuse is hauled to boats  and to depots on the outskirts of tlie  city to be burned or taken to the country to be used as fertilizer.  HOW IT'S DONE IN BERLIN.  The. sanitary regeneration of Berlin dates from the purchase of extensive territory in the environs, iu 1861,  but it was  era  of p  wars of 1864-71 aad the establishment of Berlin as the national capital  that the admirable public works aad  institutions which now exist, and  which are practically self-sustaining,  were begun. It is said that the waterworks aud gas works more than pay  for themselves and that the sewage  disposal works bring in a considerable income toward the payment of  their operating expenses. Every department seen:; to be run nearly as  well as though it were a private enterprise, in accordance with the German  idea of   municipal   administration.  Berlin has been made a sanitary city  in spite of, and not because of, natural  conditions.: Its situation is peculiarly unfavorable for drainage aud a  great- deal of pumping in a low, sandy  plain v traversed by sluggish streams is  required to' supply the city with water  and to carry off the sewage. The drinking water is pumped and filtered aud  delivered under pressure from a considerable distance in the suburbs. The  sewage is collected from different parts  of the city into a dozen central districts. It is then pumped long distances  in the suburbs. The sewage is collected  from different ^iarts of the city into  3 dozen central districts. It is then  pumped   long   distances  into  the  coun-  ...... ���������V -..- "A i ��������� r.^~Jl *. .. lw^M.1^ X���������,.������~.  lands owned by the municipality.  Iu such works as the construction of  streets, sewage and -water supply systems the German plan is to keep steadily ahead of the demands so that the  city may never outgrow its sanitary  requirements. This is in direct contrast  to American practice, and is the more  remarkable in tlie case of Berlin, for,  since its transformation beginning forty  years ago, tho city has more than doubled in population.  UNTER DEN LINDEN.  at all wield a great deal more power  than some who are. The President of  tho United States, who is no king, ?���������������&  a far greater influence and takers a  far more active part in the government  o������ tliis hation than the King of England  does in England. Tho word king .-.'.jcs  nob mean any more than -what it las  meant in days past.  But when applied to Christ it means  all that it ever meant. No more can  a man Vb������ Van 'absolute ruler over other  men. In due time we shall have no  more real kings among men. But  Christ is no man. His Kingship  springs from a divine kingly right ai'd  wisdom and character, and men wdl  realize incre and more their need of  his sovereign       Tide and guidance.  And Christ's Kingship involves on  His part also tho kingly strength. Often  in the old days the king was not the  wiso man .but tlio man of action, who  gathered tho wise men about liim as  his counselors and listened to their advice and then went forth aud by hia  own kingly strength achieved. But our  King is His own counselor. He knows,  and no plan can bo made for Him. Uo  has His own and they aro best. And Uo  is also the groat achiever. No arm--is. us  strong as His. AU power has been given to Him and -against-His kingdom tbo  gates of hell shall not-prevail. His subjects have tho confidence and joy which  belong to tho soldiers of an invincible  leader.

The principal cleaning which the  Htrecta receive ia done by horse-propelled brooms, with bristles of split bamboo  ���������which arc capable of sweeping 7,175  square yards per liouh with the horse  walking about 2.5 miles per hour, or nn  amount of sweeping equal to the work  of about ten men.  Horsc-propclled squeegees arc employed on asphalt and wood pavements.  They nro of Biinplo design, resembling  - common road scrapers, with tho scraping odgo sob like a machine broom in  nn oblique direction to scrape the refuse  to ono side. Thecc squeegees nro useful  in rainy weather; and whon the dirt on  the streets can b������ softened by sprinkling carts so that it Is ready to be moved like mud.; Softening by sprinkling  followed by squeegeeing or nwceping  with rotary brooms' is tho chief reliance  of tho city in getting rid of fino dirt  which cannot bo shoveled away.  AUTOMOBl WS SWEEPERS.  Experiments have been made with automobile sweepers and sprinklers of 15  horse power and driven- by Rrtsoline,  which have proved slightly more ������en-  nomlcol than horso-propclled machines.  Tho sprinkling of street* in accomplish*  ������-d by means* bf hind carts with a capacity of forty tb fifty gallons*, by carti*  propelled hy hordes, with a capacity of  from 250 to'330 gallons, and hy Iioho.

When tho sacks are iuil Uu������y ���������*(��������������� UJ������'  The streets of Berlin are long,  straight, wide, well designed and generally well paved. The most famous  street is the Unter den Linden (196  feet wide), the scene of the capital's  most fashionable shops, hotels and  restaurants.  Berlin makes an energetic effort _ to  keep its streets clean. The organiza-  tion is military in type and many of,,  tlie details of the work are minutely  planned and reduced to the form of  specific printed ' directions.  The authority in charge of street  cleaning is a joint committee of  twelve, mado up from paid and unpaid  members of the city council, under  which is a chief who lias direct charge  of the operations of the department.  Tlio city does not clean, all tho  streets frco of cost; a charge is made  for cleaning tho tracks of the street  cars, private streets and now Rtrocts.  Tlio sale of waste matters, old apparatus and entrance fees to publio comfort stations increase the revenue by  nearly an equal, amount.  Tiie work of cleaning ' the-streets  proceeds from thirty-three depots, attached to which aro yards for the  storogo of oppavatus. etc. Tho streets  are swept nt night by revolving  mnchino brooms propelled by horses.

We have been taught from earlv  youth to reverence old age, and one  of our proudest boasts as a civilized nation is that we have remained true to  our teachings in this regard at least. In  these more engaging times, however,  there seems really to be no old age in  the former acceptation of the term. It  is .true that the years add up just the  same, but nature seems to have extended  her lease of life and rejuvenated the human system. The dainty lace caps that  once set so lovelingly upon the white  hairs have given way before the onslaughts of the hair-drcsser, and the  sonabre black bonnet that tied with  strings has long since been succeeded  by the lateat creation of the milliner's  art. It is just as well, perhaps, that  the period of a person*s"mcntal as wcJl  as physical activity can be lengthened  to 3n almost indefinite extent, speaking comparatively, of course, for just so  much more of life's joy will fall to his  share;- even at the risk of a corresponding increase A of its sorrow.

It, i������ sometimes  claimed:that the monotony of home life  and its endless routine of duties makes  a woman old before her time, and that  getting in touch with other interests,  brushing against the outside world, rejuvenates her system and refreshes mind  and heart to such a degree that tho encroachments of age are not so easily dis>-  tinguiBhed..;,  , ,    ,      ���������    j.,���������,,-    , a  But, after Vail,- a familiar figure in  homo life passes away with the advent  of x tlio "-new woman," and' somehow  thb altered conditions do not'seem to  compensate Vfor' tho loss of that which  hiis long been dear to \is.

It was  the marriage of a young Englishman  born and resident in Prance fcvith a  French young lady, and the ceremony  was'performed entirely in accordance'  ���������with. French- custom.  As the young couple, were of mixed  religions and the Bomau Catholic  Church refused to sanction any other  religious ceremony than that by a Romish priest, it was decided to abandon  the original plan of having the -union  consecrated at both the Protestant and  Soman Catholicl churches. We all assembled at the house of the bride's mother at half nflst 10 in the morning and  made the acquaintance of each- other.  We were some forty in all, and as the  French aro leas standoffish than the  English we had lots of time, before the  bride was ready to make one another's  acquaintance over a glass of Madeira.  At 11.30, the hour at which we ought  to have been arriving at the Mairie,  the bride was still in the hands of the  hair dresser and the dressmaker, and  two or three of her girl friends, who  had come in to see that her dress fitted  properly and that her pretty wreath of  orange blossom was displayed to advantage. At last the final pin was put  in, the two bridesmaids in white each  took a corner of the bride's train and  ��������� ive filed downstairs to tbe landau.  On arriving at the Mairie we were  met by a half distracted employee, who  implored the' master of ceremonies to  hurry up the couple who were to be  married, for" the cortege was nearly  three-quarters of an hour late and Mons  le Maire had threatened to go off without waiting for the bridal party. But  the master of ceremonies had his own  idea- as to hew the wedding should be  carried out, and even if Mona. Le Maire  was a. quarter of an hour late for his  lunch, he was determined that the ceremony should be carried out decently and  in order.  So, when we got out of the carriages  all the men were lined up on one side  of "the porch, and all the women on the  other. Then the bride and bridegroom  walked through the lane of guests,- and  as they went by the couples on each side  linked' arms behind them as if for a  dance and followed them upstairs to the  reception   room.  After a brief halt there for the verification of the necessary papers we all  walked into the' nest room with our  partners on our arms. At one end was  a raised platform, with a reading desk.  In front and on each side were rows of  chairs, and the-centre of the room was  taken up by rows of' leather covered  benches. I have- seen 'this kind of room  ou the stage so often that I had no difficulty in recognizing it as the marriage  room.  Ab soon as we had taken our seats���������  the bride and bridegrom and their spon-'  "sors close up to the platform���������Monsieur  le Maire, with his tricolor scarf across  his breast, came in from behind tlie  "reading desk, mounted to his place, and  'bowed to the assembled company. Then  he immediately took up the official marriage" service, and began to read the articles "whieli lay down Vthe law in matters matrimonial.  As he galloped along I caught the  phrases stipulating that the husband  must be devoted to his wife and fnxn-  ,ish her.with all that is necceary to her  wants. Tho wife, on the other hand,  must respect her husband and follow  him wherever he goes in tho interests  oi the family. I did not hear anything  about love, honor and obey." .  After the young couple had joroea  ���������hands the Mayor pronounced them man  ���������and wife before the ltt*w. Tlie whole cere-,  ihonv did not last more thon ton mln-  mtes" and directly it was over and: the  -ilavor had congratulated tho couple in  a curt, officio! phrase^ one of the brides^  maids came round- with an alms bag  Viand made the twual "quetc" for tho em-.  plovcef* of the Mairie. Then Monsieur  le Maire bowed hurriedly, and hastened  off to his luncheon.

Twenty fathoms beneath the waters  of Hawks Gap the Spanish merchantman  rested, her side torn out by the rock������  that had closed their teeth on her within sight of the port. The salvage tug  lay anchored above the wreck, and relays  of divers were being sent down to discover what *he might hold besides her  known cargo of maize.  ��������� Briscoe, the second diver, stood impatiently upon the deck, awaiting the return of Lorsen, tlie big Swtde, who had  been down for more than his hnlf hour.  ���������'Hurry down, lhiscoe," said the chu*f  officer. "If any thing's wrong, do what  ycu can.    Tf not, send hini aloft."  The helmet with its glass front was  fastened ever the man's neek and he  was lowered into the depths.

Presently he perceived  the outlines of the wreck, resting upon  the sand some yards away. Then his  feet rested on the bootom and be began  moving cautiously among the shattered  timbers. A great, gaping hole in the  side of the vessel, through which a shoal  of little fish swam wildly away, served  as the door of entry. Xow Briscoe was  clambering among the ruins of the  wreck, seeking for the other diver.  AU at once he perceived the connecting  cord, like a great snake, wriggling  through the green water. He followed  it cautiously, into the vitals of the vessel. It lead into the cabin of the captain. There at the far end he saw Lar-  scn's shadowy figure, upright upon its  feet, but bending over something that  lay before him.  Briscoe crept up behind the Swede.  No sound was audible to either man, encased as they were in the strong helmets  and lie was enabled to approach direetlv  behird the giant and to look over his  shoulder. Larsen was bending over a  small sea chest. But from its interior,  even in that half darkness, there flashed streams and sparkles of light from a  magnificent array of diamond*., rubies  and other gorn-*.. set into bracelets, and  necklaces. And bard by was the skeleton of the captain. Evidently, he rhad  opened the chest to secure the jewels  when his fate overtook him. Briscoe  started, toppled, and fell agnin������t Larson.   The Swede sprang round.  He stood glaring at Eriacoe for one instant; thou plunged for liis throat. The  sight of the coveted wealth, whose existence was unsuspected by the salvage  operators, had evidently affected his reason; no other man should learn .of that  splendid prize. The recognition of the  Swede's determination flashed across  Briscoe's brain on Uie-'IriRtjiiit. Auto-  matieally he ducked his head to avoid  the crashing blow of the giant's fist  against the glass of his helmet. (Wc  this was broken, he would instantly be  inundated by the waters. This wuh the  vital point of the diver's organism. The  strong air > pipe, .'fashioned to defy. the  fraying: timbers of ships, eould'Vnot be  severed withoutV an ; axe. It was only  the glass that Briscoe feared for. Y-  '".'In'the slime and ooze the men grappled with ono another like wild animals.

Every child should be taught.  by mean* of precept and experiment,  what to do when a fire breaks out m  his own house. He should b& instructed how to go to work coolly and  methodically, cither tc extii*gui-������L the  ilames, or���������if necessary���������to escape  from the building. Lessons of this kind,  imparted by practical methods, would  become a source of strength in alter  life, and would go far to check t<lie recurrence of fire outbreaks, with their  entailed los-s of life and capital.  Take, for example, the ca=e ot an  overturned oil lamp. There( is a sudden and alarming blaze; but if action  is taken at once, the damage may bo  confined to the carpet, cloth, or whatnot upon which the lamp actually  liis. , To t'hrow water on the conflagration is useless. The burning oil will  only .be forced over a larger area. The  aim should be to absorb the oil and  smother the flame as much as possible, and this may best be done by  means of some non-inflammable powder���������such as flour, sand, earth from  the garden, or anything of the kind.  Another point worth' remembering is  the use of the soda-water syphon as  an extinguisher. Suppose that a lamp  or candle has ignited a curtain and  that the flame has run up the fabric.  A syphon of soda water, squirted over  the tlames, will work wonders. Not  only does the forc& wit'h which the  liquid leaves the tube allow of its being directed well above the operator's  Lead, but the carbonic-acid gas with  which the water is charged helps to  deaden the flames.  Htow to act for one's safely, or to  assist another, in the ease of burning  clothing cannot be .setter told than  in the words of Prof, .lohu Marshall.  He says: "If the dress of a woman  catches fire, she should at once lie  down on the fioor, and should erawi  in this position either to a bell-pull or  a door, and call for assistance; or she  should roll herself in a rug or blanket. In the event of a man rendering  help, he should at onoe lay the patient  down, take off his '-'������at and roll her  in it> unless he can obtain a blanket  or rug, or roll her on the.carpet. ' It a-  woman renders assistance, sha must be  careful not to allow her own clothing  to touch the victim, but to hold,a rug  or blanket in front of herself while  approacJhiii2 tlie flames."  Prompt action without rashness or  self-balking hurry, is the keynote of  success in fighting the fire-fiend. This  applies especially to those who wnko  from sleep to find the house on firo.  Not n. moment should be lost, but there  should be no wild rushing from a window to a door and back again. Tirst  an ntt*mpt should be made to get  down the stairs. To escape through  v ���������sag.'ii ,'ftl!#ji iw'ith suffocating smoke,  tie a wet handkerchief ovor tvh������ mouth  and nose, then crawl on the hands aiid  knoes^ for the smoke tends to rise with  tho hot. air, and will bo loss deiisc cIoho  to theVfloor."-  But if the whole'of the lower purt  of tho house Is burning, and '.escape by  means of the stairs.Is impossible, pro-  piuatiotix miiflt be made for leaving  through tha window.

The fact that Secretary of tbe Treasury Cortelyou is fond of hot mince pie  and eats it standing up in a quick lunch  room opposite the White House hai set  the Washington correspondents to going.  We don't know why a place in the  President's Cabinet should change a  man's taste or in any degree affect liis  appetite.  Why shouldn't Secretary Cortelyou  relish hot mince pie? Almost everybody  else does. Of course the brand that one  gets at a quick lunch counter is not the  meaty, juicy and luscious article that  mother used to make, stuffedvwith Malaga raisins and stimulated with cider  squeezed out of old fashioned apples  gathered from the orchard out back of  the house.  But mince pie is mince pie, and there  is no other pie to take its place. Custard pie is good and so is apple pie, but  neither has the uplifting power and the  soothing, gratifying power possessed by  mince pie when served hot, with a crisp  brown crust.  We applaud Secretary Cortelyou for  tlie high quality of his gastronomic judgment and congratulate him upon the possession of a digestive apparatus tht ia  capable of taking care of so toothsome a  product without giving its owner discomfort.

For the natives know that there is  water in all deserts and that the receptacles for this water are plants which  by means of their roots absorb water  from the soil when the rains come and  storo it up like reservoirs for use m  time of drought. An examination with  tho (microscope shows how this is done.  The interior of a plant that holds water consists of myriad water storago  cells, and according to the Strand a ue-  termination of the water in a sample of  the storago tissue' of the barrel casus has shown ovor 08 per cent.

A specimen weighing a ton  and measuring nine feet high and thiree  feet in diameter was once" received at  Kew, but soon died owing to injuries  in transit.  Some years ago when Frederick V.  Coville of tho Department of Agriculture at Washington in company, with D.  T. MacDougai, of the New York Botanical Garden, was in Mesico seeking a  location for a desert botanical laboratory for the Carnegie Institution of  Washington he made a special study of  the barrel cactus.  Happily for the investigations there  was at hand in the person of Mr. Co-  ville's guide���������an intelligent Fapago Indian���������oue who from old time practice  was able to show how deftly and quickly the traveller in the desert may  quench his thirst. He first picked out a  cactus a little over three feet high and  twenty inches in diameter. He then slie-.  ed -off the top and exposed the white interior, raising the top from the -rest of  .the plant as if it were a lid on hinges.  Inside could be seen a pulpy structure, v evidently saturated with water,  although it was noticeable; that the  Water did not exude from the pulp when  the cut was made. Tfco <ruide then cut-  a stake about three inches in diameter  at the blunt end an dbegan to mash  Sie flesh of the cactu9 into a pulp.  By this means he made in the top  of the cactus a sort of bowl and soon  had collected a suitable quantity of this  "pulp. Then* taking it up handful by  ���������handful he squeezed, out the water into  the bowl and tossed the useless pulp  kway. The flavor of the water was  slightly salt.  The  Georges.  A new George is on England's throne.  Thia brings Britain's Georges into the  limelight.  St. George is the patron saint of chivalry and of England.  Tlie earliest of them introduced the  Hanoverite line into Britain.  George I. (1600-1727) could not speak  at all the language of his kingdom.  George II. (1083-1700), also elector ot  Hanover, joined his father in tlie struggle  against Jxmis XIV.  George 111. (1738-1820), grandson ot  tho preceding, was a moral King., He  was subject to fits of insanity. His  reign was noted for brilliant statesmen  and writers.   He had 15 children.  Qcorgo IV. (1702-1830), eldest son of  the preceding, became regent in 1810,  owing to his father's insanity. He "cut  up high jinks" at various times with  various charmers.  .'CeorgC''y<.'':(borri'-'Jun^  ried PrincbsaAMdryVof - Teck iri A1893.

Outdoor bedrooms are becoming more  common in New Yoik. They would be  more popular weie tliey easier to get.  Tliis has boen made plain since the open  e e ������������ ���������������������������������������������������-������-������-������'������������-.;���������������-������-������������������������������������������-������������:  There have been occasions of late  when iresh air enthusiasts* have been  the cause of einharraAnient' to themselves and to others. For instance, out  in the Kingsbridge section are ytwo  houses not fnr apart and under one  management which constitute a. large  bcyirding house and include a piazza  reached only by way of the living room  and a piazza reached via the dining room  only. -Either piazza is raised several  feet above the sticot level and has a  hi-ill railing.  A YOUNG FRESH AIR  enthusiast ivho last spring applied for  board no sooner saw the piazza adjoining the living room than she went into  ecstasies, offering to pay extra for the  privilege of sleeping thero at night. After some hesitation and with the proviso that not until all the other guests  had vacated the piazza for the* night  must the cot put in an appearance the  landlady gave her .consent Before long,  the evenings getting warmer, sitters began to linger on the- piazza longer than  was pieasing to the fresh air enthusiast,  who, as a hint, began to have her cot  brought on before the piazza was vacated.   ���������������������������-.-  At this some of the gnests demurred.  Early risers also protested at finding"  the piazza turned into a bedroom.  Finding herself, getting unpopular, the  lady changed her room, moving to the  other house, where she prepared to sleep  on the piaxza of the dining-room. This  worked all right until early breakfasters made complaint. Then the landlady  cut off the outdoor sleeping privilege,  and-;her. boarder found quarters in a  nearby apartment house which, like  many of tke newer apartments built  lately in tbe Kingsbridge section, provides a real piazza for each teaa'ntV  There she can sleep out of doors without  interfering ^rith anybody's comfort.  In one such fourth storey apartment  not far from the 225th street- station live  two young -aroinen stenographers, both  narrow-chested, pale and; overworked  looking sis months ago* Tfeey have slept    regularly  on  their  piazza ever  since  a  or    twiee in "the n>t*ht , two weeks trial resulted in better diges  ting   of   the    tube-mitosis exhibit at the  Siitseum of Natnial IJistory.  Persons who never before had anything to say on the subject are beginning  ���������to compare notes. Not that tin* majority of outdoor sleepers have tuberculosis or ever expect to have it. >>er-  vousness, insomnia, a. delicate throat,  a tendency to catch cold are among the  reasons given by men and women tor  eleeping on extension loofs, balconies,  fire escapes, housetop* and cots piojeC.  ing half way out oi a. window.  How many oi these persons there aii*  in New York nobody know-.. 11 ia agr������vd,  "however, that in the aggiegate the number of outdoor sleepors ia larje and growing    fast.       Condition?  make a  certain  amount of secrecy about *'*.c practice desirable.    Sail a wonian who is planning  to sleep on a narrow fourth  storey al-  . sovh. baicony between two bow windows:  "For mercy's sake don't give my  address or 1 shall have a crowd of tlm curious    opposite    my    house  every night  "WaU-aing my preparations for bed."  This woman's house is in v, fine i"si-  denee street of the upper W'esi, Side,  which gets a good sweep of river breezes.  Like other houses in the block it i.-������ finished . with an occasional balcony :n  Jine with the iourth storey .vindows. A  stone balustrade perhaps thirty-four  inches high guards the ��������� frout of the balcony, and the roof copmg forms a partial  protsjcting'cover.  Rolled out Of sight under this coping  is a heavy awning"which is let down at  might if the weather is stormy. Here  on a dot, which is put out at bed time  and taken in at daybreak, the -owner,  of the house is acquiring the habit of  sleeping 50ixadly% and incidentally gain-  iijft in strength, and good looks?.  It is the gain iri good looks, in fact,  ���������which encourages her to keep risht on  ���������with an experiment begim-tast Febnnuy  to an accompaniment of no end of good  natured chair from her family. A -uiid  snowfall    once  lias failed to drive her indoors. She  allows nothing short of -a hard rainstorm,  to s������"nd her to cover.  HsrVexainple has been followed by  throeof her friends living in Manhattun.  More* of her friends, v/ouid"sleep out;  of A doors, she is "sure," were there ..sore  houses which include an outdoor projection big enough to hold a cut, the average woman being too timid to sleep o:i  a housetop.  An  official  of   the  "    TUBERCULOSIS EXHIBIT  is  certain, that.the exhibit  will  have  a  strong influence on the future arehitec-  ���������turc of city hcusss and Lii<*t tue ������Li'������iig<.>.t  Tip and  down   boxlike  variety of house  will go out of fashion.

Just now it Ls *he well-to-do classes  that are giving  most attention  to  demonstrating the  healthfuln'ess of sleeping in the open air, and it is city dwellers rather than residents of the country  ���������who show the greater enthusiasm on the  question of   outdoor   bedroiiis;,    A*   an  illustration   of   the   lukewarm attitude  .of-.the  average country dweller toward  the teachings of tlio exhibit the official  already   quoted   repeat**   the   comments  of n. motherly old lady, hale. nnd hearty:  in appearance nud obviously    from    the  country, who strolled in one morning in  tho. wake of a very citified young grand-  daughter breezily chatting about, a camping out experience she enjoyed Inst summer.

Put some beauty into your life every  day by seeing beautiful works of art,  beautiful bits of scenery, or by reading  some noble poem or selection in prose.  Keep busy; idleness is a great friend  of age, but an enemy of youth. Regular employment and mental occupation  are marvellous youth preservers.  Pure air both indoors and outdoors is  absolutely essential to health and longevity, isfever allow yourself to remain  in a poisoned or vitiated atmosphere.  Never compare yourself with others  of the same age or think that you must  appear as old us thoy because you have  marked the same number of years.  Don't let anyone interfere with your  regular hours of work and rest, but get  plenty of sleep, especially what is called  "beauty sleep," lief ore midnight.

God and obedience to  His commandments. The two have been  often separated in human thought. It  has been taught that mere belief In the  Lord is saving, without keeping tins-commandments; and on the other handiit is  often said', "It does not matter what a  manV believes* if he lives a good life."  Now, the saying that it does not matter what ai man believes if lie. fives a  good life would be true if it were possible. Tiie difficulty, with the saying  is that it assumes that one can live  equally--.'well Whatever his belief, or if he  has no belief in God and heaven. This  is not true. One cannot live a'..genuinely:' good life simply from motives of policy, or from any other motive than duty  to the Lord. No other motive, is always  present,; whether acts are known to other men vor not; no other motive- is to be  trusted always in this world;.

Without this, motive,  which: involves acknowledgment of the'  Lord, it is impossible to live: a life that  is really good; real keeping of the com-  mandments ^ makes   one - with   such  ac*  knowledgment;   they   cannot  be    kept  without it.    It w*as .the lesson of the  Lord to . the  young loan who claimed  that he had kept the commandments;  he must sell all, take up his cross, and  follow Him.    Itwas the lesson of the  Prophet Micah, when to the .charge to  do justly and to love mercy, he added,  "And to walk humbly with thy GodV'  This fact that a man cannot resist e>*������l  alone,' In his own strength,; the  scriptures repeatedly declares, hence the insistence of our doctrinesVupon^the Ane-  cessity, for shunning evils as sins. -^ To  shun them for any other: reason is not  to shun them, but only to prevent their  appearing.' In our own strength wo cannot conquer evil thought and"  feeling  which  are behind it;  we canhbt overcome, the influences which press into the  mind stirring - up the evil;' but the reverse of this is true; that resisting evil  because tho Lord forbids it, and looking  to Him for help, wo can conquer, wo cannot only refrain from the wrong action,  but can overcome the wrong thought and  feeling; wc can resist the influences from  the world and from hell, which arouse  the evil.       ���������'��������� :;V-:'7  This is the advantage, tho privilege,  of ono who acknowledges the Lord,, who  shuns, nnd resists evil because the Lord  forbids it.

REVIEYv  Most  RADIUM POWER  Concentracted    Form   Of   Energy  Known.  -Speaking at the Authors-'  Club last Monday night on the subject  of radio-activity Sir William llanisay  about radium and its emanations.  Starting with a definition of the terms  concentration and energy, he traced  briefly the discovery bf radium by Mine.  Curie and the methods of it-s extraction  from urunium ores. Then after a description of the cathode rays and the di*>-  covwies of;M. Becquerel he pointed out  how all material human progress leally  consists in the first place in the concentration of energy, and in the second  place in raising what was termed the  ecoonmical coefficient.  Becquerel .found that there were three  different kinds of rays given out fioin  radium. First there are rays which can  be easily kept in a glass tube, which arts  known as Alpha rays. Then come a second kind, called Beta rays, which can  pa������33 through glass and which turn oue to  be the~saine as the cathode rays of Len-  ard. The third kind, or Gamma rays, ar^  very    penetrating  and   appeal* to have  sent. Suppose lie took a slice of bread  and cut it in two, taking a minute to do  it, and then he cut the half in two again,  and so went on continually cutting each  piece in half, how long would it take him  to cut that bread entirely up? He could  never do it. He would be always halving  to infinity, and the operation would take  him an eternity to perform. That was  the case with radium. The amount of  gas produced was always proportionate  to the aniount of radium there and it  was always being produced.  When would radium be half gone?  They had just measured it in his laboratory, n.nd it would take 1,750 years, bo  that if any one invested in radium be  would retain at leaat half his capital at  the end of 1;750 years.  The Austrian Government some time  ago entrusted liim with about half a  gramme, or one fifty-fifth of an ounce,  oT radium for private use. It did not  belong to him, but its value was about  ������0.000. Less than a year ago Dr. Gray  and himself performed the experiment of  some unaiogy to light, e-vcept that  un-   ���������*>������-���������'��������� ��������������� ��������� ���������r__ _. *~*"1- ^  Krt/I fl *���������**������  like light  tliey  can pass  through non  transparent substances.  These rays can pass through about six  inches of lead, and possess the power ot  discharging an electroscope. Lead, in  fact, is moderately transparent to ths  Gamma rays. It was not quite clear  whether the word ray was quite applicable tb these rays "or emanations, as  there was a doubt as to whether they  were really given off or were simply undulations or waves in the ether.  He should say that the Alpha and  Beta rays were something like minute  particles shot out from the radium,  whereas the Gamma -rays corresponded  more tb.waves in the medium which surrounds ua and which is termed ether.  As regards the Alpha rays, Prof. Rutherford was the first to point out that thtse  were due to a gas, but a similar observation wa3 made by a German, Dr.  Schmidt, in connection with thorium,  another element discovered by the speaker to be capable of discharging the electroscope when placed near it.  The fact remained that radium wm  continually giving out gas. Tliat was  why the Alpha rays could get out of a  vessel containing radium. The Beta  rays were also particies���������smaller than  the Alpha rays, and travelling at an enormous velocity. The Gamma rays were  not particles but waves or undulations ia the ether, Them latter rays  were still being investigated.  It was possible in some degree by  means of calculation to measure the  wars of the particles of the Alpha and  Beta rays.* Suppose a cannon to be  pointed horizontally and loaded with  a -ccrtsin kSc~n charge cf po���������der -**nd.  a shot, if, the cannon was fired the shot  would not go in u straight line, but j  would describe a paranoia, and tha distance to which the shot would travel  would depend upon its mass, upon the  explosive force of the powder, and upon  the .attraction, of the earth in dealing  with the Alpha particle, and find out  how much it ' was deviated from a  straight line by the. attraction of the  electric field, and ascertain the rate at  which it was propelled, they could calculate how heavy it was, and what its mass  wns.  Prof. Rutherford and Sir J. J. Thorn-  eon made such an experiment, and found  that while the Alpha particles���������that is,  the , gas which escapes from radium���������  have a very considerable mass, something about twice that of an atom of  hydrogen,'the mass of the Beta particle  was exceedingly small, and was only  equal to about one-thousandth of the  tnnfcs of a hydrogen atom.  The Beta rays wero being investigated  nnd it had been found that thoy play on  important part in the composition of  matter. V, If matter was not mado. up  of Beta 'particles revolving round each  other like the, planets of the eolar ays-  V tcm theseV particles wore revolving  nround something or other or, according  to Sir J. J. Thbmaon; like email suns or  plimcttf revolving ardutid cach;other; 'Returning to the Alpha partlclea Sir William proceeded to say that when radium  emitted..these particles it loBt energy.  It woe'olwaya losing energy-and.it could,  not.1������ ^topped.from doing that.

The;/  completed it and liquified it.  When liquified it shone with a purplish  light, though it was quite transparent,  like water. It shone with a light of its  own. When reduced to a temperature  of minus sixty centigrade it solidified,  and then it glowed with an extremely  brilliant light like a miniature arclight.  The quantity they had was extremely  small, but they ascertained its boiling  point, its melting point and its specific  gravity, and all this was done with a  smaller quantity than the point of the  finest needle. Of' course they used a  microscope.  This substance was the most concentrated form of energy known. It was  a substance whiek went on chancing  into other things, to which various  names were given. These substances  were named radium. A, radium B. radium  C, and so on up to radium F. Somc^ of  them had a very short existence, lasting  only half an hour or three-quarters of  an hour, and he had never seen them.  He had seen radium D���������a substance  wliich would be gone in about forty  years. That gave one time to look at  "it. It was a substance rather dull looking, like lead, and that was nearly all  he could tell them about it. There were  other substances, probably like the  polonium discovered by lime. Curie.  During these emanations radium gave  a great deal of energy, generally manifested as light, but as a matter of fact  radium kept itself hot. There was a  great deal of heat generated. It could  be calculated", and it was found that it  gave off "bent ?.500.000 times =as much  ���������heat as would be given off by the  oxyhydroecn blowpipe, which' gave a  temperature of over 2,000 degrees Centigrade. There they had, surely, the  greatest concentration of energy ever  ksown. He doubted if ever they would  get anything greater.  What did this energy do? It sent  out the Alpha fays at a velocity of  about 40,<K>0 miles a second, and these  particles naturally carried a great deal  of energy. The Beta rays, although only  about one-thousandth the .size, also  carried great energy, owing to their  enormous velocity, which was still higher  than the Alpha rays.  There were plenty of things they  could do with thia energy. They could  decompose water and metallic ^ aub-  atanccs, and in these- decompositiono.,  they found elements produced which  they did not imagine to exist in the  substances bo treated. For instance, in  decomposing ordinary copper sulphate  they were surprised to discover lithium  in wliait remained and no trace of the  copper salt. Ho had, repeated this experiment five times. The experiments  wore still going on.  The phenomena which he hhd do-  scribed Were hardly capable of explanation. He had nothing to do with it. He  could only describe it aa an act of God.  An net of;.C;(od had been described by..an  eminent lawyer, who was a' Scotsman,  as an net-which no sensible man would  believe God would have performed.  Dealing with the therapeutic properties of radium, SirAWilliam' renn'orice'd  tluit it l������nd been said that radium Cured  cancer. Ho.��������� did not believe it to be by  any mean's certain. It was exceedingly  doubtful, though it had never been  rightly tried, and all ono could say waa  that there were things which hod been  favorable to that euggcatlon. In this  week's Lancet thero was an account by  Sir Lauder Brinton of a case of canoor  which was-at least ameliorated .and llfo  prolonged by radium emanations. The  Radium Institute wn������ making 'inquiries  of that kind -with largo quantities, of  radium and under efficient control, Ho  thought tlioy might pontpono their decision as regarded the cure of ennoer, but  ���������^horo waa no necessity to postpono it  with tho regard, to the cure of rodenj  ulcer.   It woo a certain cure for that.   ��������� ������ ������ "     y  Making Love to tno Vamily.

One of the reasons given by old writers for the crocodile being worshipped  in Egypt was the somewhat cryptic  one that it "laid threescore eggs and'  lived for threescore years"; but from  twenty to thirty is the common number of eggs found in a ''clutch." In the  reptile's easy code of ethics, however,  its parental responsibilities end with  the act of oviposition, for having covered the eggs with a layer of sand it  leaves the sun to do the rest (whence  I doubtless Shakespeare's "your mud and  the operation of your sun") and leaves  it also to the ichneumon to do its worst.  In some places it seems that water tortoises too eat crocodiles' eggs; but the  ichneumon is the real desolator of crocodile homes, snatching up the nests  and eating or breaking the entire "sitting" at a meal. Crocodiles' eggs, however, are absurdly small, a mother  twenty feet long being content with an  egg no larger than that^of a goose, and  the newly hatched young hardW more  formidable than a common newt, are  preyed upon by birds, which a little  later the rapidly growing crocodile  would like nothing better than to get  within its reach, as-well as.doubtless  by 'many other things,' "including old  crocodiles themselves.  The.real horror of tho���������members of the  crocodile tribe lies in.their usual noise-  lessness. "They swim with great silence, making scarcely even a ripple on  the water," say* M. Du Chaillu. and  the terror of the stealth of their approach is well conveyed in Mr. Rudyard  Kipling's "Ripple Song":  "Wait, ah! wait," the ripple saith;  "Maiden, wait, for 1 am Death!"  The first sight of an alligator or crocodile, however large sunning itself on  a mudband and pretended to be a  stranded log is usually disappointing,  and if it is.lying with its mouth open,  as in the sunshine they all love to do  (wherefore, seeing thom remaining so  immovably in what looks like so strainedv an attitude,-many visitors ,to tin?  gardens go away declaring that the  crocodiles are stuffed), it becomes nlmost absurd. But whon you have come  upon ono unexpectedly with its head  and forequarters out of the water, and  have seen it slide noiselessly book until  it disappears, and then -svm while you  still wntcli the place where it vanished,  not a movement ��������� having so Amuck as  made the surface of the water quiiko,-  tlio hideous thing suddenly, Btill in complete silence, thrusts itself out upon the  hank many yards away��������� it may be  further off or nearer to you��������� to H������ a  mere snag at the water's edge,.,waiting  for whatever moy coinc within its roach,  whether you or another, the dread fulness of the thing ,is.very chilling.   .'. ���������  Sir Samuel Baker tells of the cunning  of croeodllcB, which advance at ah animal without any coricealmon ti a nd then,  as if in disgust at their failure, turn  and ewirn away, still in sight, only nt  last to sink"belowAthe siirfaec and re*  turning without a tipple to betray thom  rise immediately below the quarry,  which haa by thiB time .returned to  drink in fancied security., By this trick*  he saw them again and again catch  birds. which nettled on branches over*  hanging tho water. The chief food of  most members of the family, and probably the entire. food of eomo, is fish;  but now that we know that a full  grown rhinoceros can be pulled into the  water and killed by a crocodile, we may  believe that few living things do not at  one time or another fall victims to  them. "Horses, oxen, buffaloes, bears,  mules and camels" is a list which one  writer gives of animals which are  known to have been eaten by crocodiles  in Egypt/ In -South America jaguars  and tapirs, have been seen being seized,  pulled into deep water, and drowned;  while as for man, consider the Mugger  of Mugger Ghaut in Mr. Kipling's grew-  sonie tale,  "The   Undertakers."  According to old writers tho ichneumon, besides eating crocodiles' eggs,  would run into the full grown animal's  whence,, after revelling for a while amid  Leviathan's vitals, it ate its way out  of the dead carcase victoriously to day  light. The "hydra," it seems, did the  same. But the dolphin's method was  with a knife edged dorsal fin, it swam  underneath "the encas������:L crocodiles., and  sliced elean open the coft, unprotected  parts below.  - The sword of him that layoth at him  cannot hold; the spear, the dart nor  the habergeon.  "Canst thou draw out Leviathan'with  any hook?" asked the sacred writer.  Herodotus says that in his day tliey  could use a pig for bait. In India we  know that they have been caught with  Africa ihe An?"01"1 "harpoon them with  a rude jagged spear." Diodorus, however, averred that they could only be  taken in iron nets, and the general  belief that they were byond the power  of man to capture is reflected in the  medal which Augustus struck to commemorate his conquest of Kgypt, with  the crocodile chained, to a troo, and tho  proud legend, "No one has bound me  before.**  If in Egypt they bound the crocodile  at all it seems to have been with garlands of flowers and chain* of gold and  gems, a proceeding which probably interested the crocodile only in so far as it  offered a chance of a succulent gar-  lander coming within reach. The promiscuous beatification, whioh waa shared  with such thing-* at onts and beetles,  was after all but nn indifferent compliment, nor oven po was it seemingly  universal among the Egyptian**.

When cook has taken French leave,  and has slammed down the lid of her  trunk, and your feelings are outraged to  tlie insufferable limit, and you sigh and  hold your brow over the impossiblity of  making your hel*> "come to time," just  for a change turn your searchlight of  reason self ward, and if you observe any-  such dusky characteristics as vitriolic  temper, maniacal neatness and shrunken  sympathy, make a note of it.  Then reason with yourself in this  manner: A certain evolution has taken  place among the handy domestics. They  know and are impressed with the fact  that all men and women are created  free and equal and have certain inherent  rights. They have read about the ten  hour a day law. They can't at! ore 'mis;  sus" as they did back in the romantic  and feudal ages when they had no one  else to depend on. They know that the  world is wide and chances A'arious. Thoj*  have minds of their own; they read the  newspapers and watch for better opportunities.  The woman who would have faithful  and competent help must consider this.  Then act ��������� accordingly. If she would  solve the servant problem sho must begin with herself. She must rid herself  of that^ traditional semi-despotic attitude that was probably the height of  fashion in the days of Raniesos and other barbarous ages. She must know that  petty tyrannies and tantrums do not  promote harmony. Wc are nil familiar  with the woman who kept a servant for  the first time and who seemed to experience a profound delight in being served  by somebody, and spared no efforts to  show tlie same her vast superiority.  Needless to say that hired help receive  these unkind insinuations with rankling  '..Vispleasure. And how can they discharge their duties with enthusiasm under such conditions?  WHAT CRITIC'S MUST EXPECT.  If you belong to the class of women  to whom contrariness and criticism are  the meat of life, do not expect your help  to take it all with the pasivity of mummies. Expect them to collapse,and bolt  oi*.t.  If you are one. of those high strung,  nervous phenomena who are tlie :->\vorn  enemies of Gen. DiiL e\en in his most  microscooic manifestations, and who will,  when tho tiniest crumb lies on the. Ker-  manshah, start off with a heaving bosom  and flaming eyes to deliver a piece of  mind unto the maid, do not be smi-prised  if she doesn't last longer than p,iy day.  Should you tit into that class iof household despots who think that "no way is  as good as my way,"' and who will not  allow their help ao indulge a single idea,  of their own. don't expect them to fall  over themselves' in their eagerness to  please you.  If somo of your work is so heavy that  it takes horse power to do it, don't feel  out of sorts when your girl should lie  abed in the morning with a "crik". in her  spine. If you excitedly mention a dozen  other tasks when she 5s barely through  with the first one, so that she can never  hit down to relax her muscles a bit except with fear and uncertainty, do not  wonder sometimes when her work is finished in a spiritless manner.  AGE OP CRINGING LONG PAST.  If you have the impression that your  servants lack the,finer sensibilities that  chafe at dingincss and dinkiness,' aud  you don't'care whether their little attic  room is pretty or just habitable, prepare  yourself for occasional frowns of dissatisfaction and a listlossness in dusting  1he more luxurious appointments of  your own room.  The age of cringing aud right angled  courtesies and prostrations arc past, and,  if you expect your servants to pattern  after tho faithful ro-tniuers you road of  in the romantic novels you arc behind  the times* and out ot-tnno with democracy- If you arc such a crank on cleanliness hnd good order that your servant-i  nre constantly haunted with presentiments of coming storms und verbal cross  words, you nro likewise Imhiud the  times.

'flic   further   away, we  journey   from  the days of Eve, the, more assiduouslv  the world, seems to have eultivateil'th'e  habit of kissing; in other words kissing  is a inaik and a test of civilization. Before the coming of the white man it apparently   was   totally  unknown  among  the Indians of America and the savage*  of Africa and Australia; but who shall  tiace  its  beginning'among the  people-,  of Europe end Asia?   As far as .we may  go among these  ancient white 'nation*  we  shall find no age when this highly  .unhygittuitt practice was not popular. Indeed, Darwin attempts to trace it back  to 'th������'  habit   of  our  belated  ancestors  had of grasping prey with their teeth.  This business of osculating became so  popular among the Greeks that it is  said many-husbands, before starting out  t t tlie d-ry's work, compelled their  wives to eat. garlic���������a most effective  preventive, wc cannot 'doubt, '"llic' Romans attempted to be more cold-blooded  and dignified. They .were ,atflea&t more  systematic, for they divided 'a'll' kisses  into thren kinds: the osculum, the kiss  of friendship; the basium, the'kiss of  ceremony; and.tbe suavium,.the kiss of  love.      .111   01   wjucji   aiuijiijr   iiujjuea   ciiSt  the Itoihans had' three ��������� chances to our  on������>. ���������: The ancients, however. ..were .not  in favor of a public display ofthe business; spooning was decidedly bad form.
