Insitruetions have heen issued* from  the office of 'the provincial timber  inspector at Vancouver to the effect  that in future the goveraunent timibei-t  royalty on railway ties will be 50  cents for 32.

It is for the purpose of keeping1 the  hedge -dense and low. Why do we not  we trim our elms, maples and oaks  to make them more healthful or  longer lived? No, it is mot natural  for trees of amy kind to 'bo pruned.  They are not apt to1, toe so long li\,ed  after pruning or so 'handsome to look  at.   ���������'.  The main object of pruning!   is    to  toe able to produce' larger amd better  fruit   than  could toe  secured  without  pruning.   If a fruit tree is filled withj  toraaohes thickly,  the tree will   have  twice as much fruit as it oaa toring  to perfection.   If each year we   can  thia  out a few. of the 'branches   we  thus thin out the fruit anud at    tha  saaie   time    permit the rays of the  sun to: penetrate so as to color   the  trim our oaks, maples aad: elms? Foi?  J the reason that, we desire them to fej  densely    headed,    thus it oaaaot    be  said    we trim   our apple   trees    to  make    them more 'beautiful.   Should  fruit aad toring it to perfection.     Tf  | too   many  toraaohes  are taken    but  | aad the sua a-dmitted too freely    in  " the   top of   the tree it may be injurious.

THE FISHER'S PARADISE  BRITISH     COLUMBIA    SUPPLIES  SPORT OR   MONEY.  The Great Fretted Coast of the Pacific Province Has Everything From  -������������������'���������Oie Sardine to the Whale, and the  - Wealth That Swims Beneath the  ���������("Waves Is Almost Incalculable���������  ��������� Fringe of- industry Not Touched.  "If it's sport you want, good fishin*  and huntin', you'd best come back  jwith me."  j The speaker was a fisherman from  {British Columbia, a man who had hia  jsport ahd earned his bread in a little  feshing smack on the Fraser River  land along the Pacific coast. He had  icome back east to see "the folks,"  end they had expected him to stay,  ibut he would not, no, not yet. Maybe  5u a few years, when he was too old  So fish, or do much of anything, he  anight come back, but he did not  ��������� (know. There was a something in  ihe swish of the tide and the smell of  the ocean and the rock of his little  fishing smack out there that was a-  tealling to him, and he wanted to go.  Many, a tourist who has visited the  Pacific coast and who has been fortunate enough to see the fishing boats  leave Steveston on a Sunday evening  will understand the desire of the fishermen to return to the life that would  always be a-calling him. Hundreds  of boats gather in for the close time,  which is from six o'clock Saturday  snorning until six o'clock Sunday  evening, to allow the fish to get up  the rivers to tae spawning ground.  [Promptly at the hour of release the  JHtle "wliite sailboats, like a flock of  large birds, unfurl their wings and  ekim out over the water. At first  they appear to be going together, but  soon they are spread far and wide  OT������:r the rolling waves, dancing gaily  along north, south, east and west, until one by one they disappear, each  careless little craft oa a deadly purpose bent.  Although fishing is spoken of as  one of the leading industries of British Columbia, and there are some  twelve thousand mee engaged in fishing and in the canneries, the fringe  of the industry has not yet been cut.  Some idea of where British Columbia  will stand in this industry in the future may be gleaned from, the fact  that, although the average annual output for several years has been over  mix million dollars, 80 per cent, of  this is credited to salmon alone,  "which, except halibut, is the only fish  that has been taken in large quantities   for   commercial   purposes  THE MEUX MOMMY.  8DEALCSTY.  Wonderful  Changes  Predicted  By  an  Englishman  of  Note.  "Light and energy will be conveyed  by electricity. Gasoline and oxygen  will supply heat. Liquid air will keep  up refrigeration in every larder. In  addition to heat radiators there will  be cold radiators, which will enable  each house to be.kept at the required  temperature."  Such is the beginning of some most  interesting predictions concerning our  future that were recently made by Eugene Hanard at the international town  planning conference held in London,  Kng. Mr. Hanard's forecast of what  the ideal city of the coming years will  be like is well worth reading, even  though one may be a trifle skeptical  concerning some of the great thinga  outlined.  "By this power," he declares, referring to control of temperature in  our dwellings, "it will be possible to  provide in each house one or more  health chambers closed by close fitting double windows and doors in  winch tne overworked occupant on  Ms return from town will find all the  hygienic conditions which now he can  obtain only by taking an annual holiday.  "Glass verandas of various shapes  joined together and with covered footr,  paths, according to standard models,  will shelter pedestrians against rain,  and the normal height of buildings  will be exactly the width of the street.  The roofs of houses will be platforms  upon wuich snuui ito wer beds and verdant shrubberies could be laid out, as  they would be the landing stages for  aeroplanes.  "When this progress shall have been  accomplished the physiognomy of.  towns will be changed. All terraces;  will have become landing stages for:  flying automobiles. *A viators will be.  able to fly from one terrace to another, starting ana lanuiug ss they please-.  The natural consequence of this new;  state of things wil) be that each'  building will have to be furnished;  with big elevators capable to raisingl  machines when they are ready to start.  and taking them back to the garage':  i on their return. Houses ot this de-  | scription wm also be us*?d to house,  motor cars.  "Finally the town of the future will  be traversed by large radiating thcr-  ouehiares,   occupied  partly   by   raised ; on the tossing of two^cotns.  on  Fears   For   the   British   Museum  Account of Hoodoo Relic,  Believers in the supernatural are  rather concerned in their .minds at  the moment regarding a mummy;  ���������which is included in the Assyrian and,.  Egyptian antiquities bequeathed to  the British Museum by Lady Meux.  The mummy is that of Neo-Amsu, who  died about 2,250 years ago, but does ;  not seem to be able to rest comfortably unless he is doing somebody a  bad turn. Neo first came into the possession of the late Mr. Waller Ingram,  younger brother of the founder ot  The Illustrated London News, who  bought it while serving in one of the  Nile campaigns.  Owing to a misunderstanding, Mr.  Ingram did not pay the price the  dealer expected, and in his wrath he  heaped an .ancient curse on Mr. Ingram's head. And when the niuihmy  came home, and Mr. Ingram presented it to Lady Meux. who was then  getting her collection together..certain  hieroglyphics were found.to read thus:  "If any person oi any foreign coun-  try, whether he be black num. or  Ethiopian, or Syrian, carry away this  writing, or it be stolen by. a thief,  then whosoever does this, no offering  shall be presented to their souls, they  shall never enjoy a draught of cool  water, they shall never more breathe  the air, no son and no daughter shall  arisi from their seed, their name shall  be remembered no longer upon earth,  and most assuredly they shall never  see the beams of the Disc" (the Sun  God).  Curiously enough, two years later  Mr. Insrani was killed while elephant  shooting in Somaliland, while in 1900,  Sir Henry Meux died childless, and  his baronetcy became extinct;-. anoth**r-  clause of the curse therefor? beinc fulfilled. And now some people are wondering what is going to*happen to the  directors of the British Museum it  they   accept   the  bequest.  English   Gambling  Schools.

Hbgaii, Champion  Clog and Pedestal Dancer of Canada,  who resides at 59 Chambord St., Montreal writes: "It gives me much pleasure to' let you know niy opinion of  your -wonderful Zam-Buk. AFor some  time past I have been troubled with  piles.but this, year I suffered so much  that I was obliged to cancel a num  ber of engagements. I tried all the  so-called remedies that were recommended, but they seemed to do me no  good.. Having been advised to try  Zam-Buk I purchased "a box, and after applying it a few times' T felt  marked relief. I continued with the  Zam-Buk treatment, and the relief  was extended into a permanent cure.  x giuuiy permit yuii to iisc :  illustration   of  ence  as  an  value of 'Zam-Buk for piles."  Another illustration of how Zaih-  Buk euros long-standing cases  piles is provided by Mr. "William  Kentv, of Upper Nine Mile River,  Hants Co.. N.S.

Answer���������Marriage  is an institution  fallen such an easy victim to man is  due to its habits, and, by the way,  ���������the name salmon does not properly  fbelong to any fish in the Pacific.  tHowever, they have become the com-  rtnercial salmon, of the world. Thje  '��������� so-csllsd salmon is siniilar in form  and habits to those found in the Atlantic, but their life history is different, that is, so far as it is known,  ���������which as yet is but slightly. But  that slightly reveals what man would  call a tragedy. Maybe in fish life  it is not.  The Sock-eye or Blueback salmon  ia commercially the most important  fish in British Columbia, and, like the  ������ther kinds of salmon, it generally  deposits the spawn in lake fed or lake  feeding streams, the first of the run  ���������pushing up to the extreme head  ���������waters. ThiB run is' where the tragedy begins. Every fourth year is  called "the big year," the following  year "the lean year." Why this is  bo no one can tell, although many  theories have been, offered. On tliis  fourth year the run in the Fraser  River has been known to be so great,  that the fish have crowded and shoved in their eagerness to get up until  dome have been left on the banks to  dio, and others havo been bruised  and battered in the crowd. But many  fish reach the desired spawning  grounds, ond here is the fish tragedy. As soon as the spawn is deposited the fish die, both male and  female.

Anyway, whatever happens, they die without a struggle. A peculiar feature  of this largo run every fourth year,  in the Fraser is that it has no marked  counterpart in any other river in the  province or on the coast.  No one has yet been able to toll the.  'life history of the young.    It is not  known how long they live in the freshl  ���������water beforo going out to sea, nor is*  anything    known    of    their    feeding  ?'rounds in the suit water. It is be-,  ieved they must live in the open sea,,'  for they are never found in the bays*,  and inlets, which are so numerous  ���������long the coast, nor is anything ,sben;  ot them again until tho fourth' year,  when there is another mad rush for!  tho head waters ,and after that dead  Ash lino the shoro or float, bolly up,,  down the river.  Fishermen claim that flsh have  Iwwn marked in the big year when on  their way back to the ocean and that  tbo same flsh have been caught tho  fourth year after. Thia, however,  haa not been authenticated.  A peculiar thing about tho salmon  Is the distortion tho heads of tho  ���������m-alea undergo when going un tho  rivers. Tbe Dot salmon ana the  Humpback get their names bceauuo  of thia distortion. These, and alao  the Spring salmon and the Coho, arc  "valuable commercially in British  Columbia.

First Sea Lord  and chief expert adviser to the Admiralty, has entered into the public  controversy regarding the strength of  the naw. A man who prefers deeds  to word's. "Tug" Wilson, as he is  popularly termed in the service, is  recnenized as being without equal as  a strategist and tactician. He is one  of the very few naval officers who  have earned the coveted v\C. This  was at the Battle of El Teb in 1884,  when ihe Aral-is broke the square  formed by the Naval Brigade, and he  sprang into the breach and engaged  the enemy with hia bare fists, having  broken his sword. Sir Redvers Buller  described the act as "one of the, most  courageous he had ever witnessed."  Sir Arthur is known in the navy as  "the man who never takes a holiday,"  for he rarely troes ashore, even when  his fleet or fiapship visits any port.  He regards every moment spent away  from the service as wasted.  That "Cursed" Weed.

There has been considerable talk  during the past year of introducing  into Ontario some stricter laws regarding automobiles, and 'a few persons,  most of whom do. not possess cars,  would like to have the Government  issue licenses so that no one would  run a car on a public highway without proper authority. The opponents  of the scheme claim that it would be  little more than .a farce and that an  attempt to make such a law would be  ridiculous. They contend that just  as many incompetent chauffeurs,  woula run cars with licenses as may  be found now without any.  A Toronto club man, who does not  like the suggestion, told tne following  story the other day during an argument at lunch over the license question. He said that he was touring  with a friend, and one afternoon when  nearing a city they came across an  automobile stranded in a side-road.  If a man could be judged by his  dress, th������ occupant of the car was a  genuine aiitomobilist for he wore all  the  proper  fixings ��������� ���������"   -^ ;  "Consulting the instructions how to  fix the machine," they asked him.  "No," he replied, "I am trying, to  convince myself by reading this paper."  ���������"Convince yourself of.ywhat?"  "Well, this is my chauffeur's license," he informed them, "which  says that I am thoroughly competent  to drive a machine, so when anything  goes wrong, I find it very inspiring  to read the paper over two or three  times."  WEIGHT OFTHE EARTH.  Newton's Guess Turned Into Fact by  Recent Scientific Studies.  ������t serves no useful purpose to think  of the earth's weight as so many trillion tons. Scientists will tell you  that the-earth- contains 259,393,000,-  000 cubic miles of liquids and solids  and that ^the total weight -.- density of  ths earth is 5,853, followed by eighteen ciphers, or 5,853 trillion tons.  But- all su"h flgures arp cumbrous  and inconceivable, and they convey  little meaning beyond that of a dense  immensity.  It is simpler and more useful to  compare the density of the earth, or  the ratio bf its weight, to that of a  globe of water of the same size. This  can be best understood by saying  that if the earth were made.of .quartz,  and had the same density of quartz  at its surface it would be about two  ������i and three-quarter times as heavy as  a globe pf water of the same size, or  if the earth were made of lead it  would be more than eleven times as  heavy as the globe of water. Its  density being five and a half, the  earth is thus heavier than the quartz,  globe would be, but not so heavy as  a globe of lead.  It was Newton who first thought of  weighing the earth. He had already  declared * his theory of gravitation,  that every particle of matter in the.  universe attracts every other particle  with a force that depends on their  masses and on the distances which  separate them. Since there is mutual  attraction between particle and  particle, it may well be argued that  the earth cannot exert any pull upon  itself; the earth is in a state of  equilibrium and its weight is therefore less than that of the proverbial  feather.  But it is not the pull of the earth  upon itself that is under consideration. Weighing the earth consists of  ascertaining thev-quantity'.of matter  which the earth contains, or, in other  words, determining its mass of density. This is done by comparing it  ���������with the density of water.  'For example, a cubic centimeter of  water weighs one gram; a cubic centimeter of" silver weighs ten and one-  half grams. Therefore we say that  silver has ten and one-half times  the  density  of  water..   Newton  com-  IKE FIGHTING LINE  c.  A.

His comparison was a mere guess,  but a guess which has become celebrated from the fact that subsequent  experiments, made with the most  delicate instruments, have all tended toward its verification.. Newton  declared that our globe was of greater  density than if it consisted entirely  of water. Taking the matter on the  earth's surface to be about twice the  weight of water and the matter below  the surface to be about three or four  or even five times heavier, Newto^  guessed that the earth was five or  six times :heavier than- a globe of  water of the same size.

A strange ceremony is carried on at^  certain temples in a district of India11  lying in. a belt of swamp and jungle  at the, foot of the Himalayas. Persons  -*ho liave visited the temples at sundown state that they found the priests  engaged in cooking large cakes before  the temples in perfect silence.  As the last rays' of sunlight disappear the chief priest issues from the  shrine. Moving slowly forward he  takes up a hammer and begins to  strike a bell.  At the sound all the priests rise and  move solemnly and in dead silence  around the quadrange, bearing with  them. their huge cakes, which they  break up as; tney, walk and deposit  on the stones and tree trunks and  on the steps of the temple. A rustling  sound then causes one of the visitors  to turn. A jackal, big and plump,  brushed past him and he in turn was  followed by other jackals, singly and  in pairs, emerging from every lane  nnd passace in the darkening thicket.  They" filled the space before the temple. The high priest ceased to toll  the bell nnd, at a shout and a wave  of the hand,, every jackal trotted to  what   was  evidently   his   accustomed  Slace in theleast, seized the cake in  is   jaws,    turned    and   disappeared  through the thicket.

ENGLISHMEN IN HOUSE.
There   Are   Several    Prominent   Old
Land Men In Commons.
Among the little coterie of Englishmen in the House, Martin Burrell, of
Yale-Cariboo, stands out prominently.
He came in at the last general election, after one of tbe most spectacular
contests in the whole Dominion, and
he made his mark and considerably
surprised Sir Wilfrid Laurier, by
jumping into the tray; on the opening
day of the new Parliament, and eloquently resenting the attack of the
Premier on the campaign methods of
the Opposition in that province. Since
that memorable day., Martin Burrell
has always commanded the ear of
the House. On the Opposition side
he is among the foremost able speakers. A a practical fruit-grower, he
is continually camping on the trail
of Hon. Sydney Fisher. Mr. Burrell
is still in the prime of life, being 54.
He came to Canada in 1883 and for
six years engaged in fruit farming
in the Niagara Peninsula, afterwards
removing to British Columbia, where
he is ������at'-jpresetut-' engaged in that industry on an esteasivi* scale. . Iii a
Conservative administration.' MivcBur-
rell's claims for "preferment would be
hard to ignore, and it is doubtful if
they would be overlooked. And since
the famous crossing of swords with
Sir Wilfrid-,Laurier.-on. the opening
day of this Parliament, the Premier
has entertained a profound respect
for the little man from Grand Forks,
for after all the Liberal chieftain
dearly loves a fighter.
Speaking of Englishmen, it may
surprise many to know that several
of the prominent members of Parliament hailed originally from the tight
little island. There is Ralph Smith,
the white-haired philosopher from
Nanaimo, who deserted the practice
of. medicine in Newcastle-on-Tyne
only a few years ago to take up farming life in Alberta, and who is the
only supporter of. the Liberal party
who dares stand up in his place in
Parliament and declare that absolute
free trade is the inevitable destiny of
Canada. Arthur Cyril Boyce, the clever little lawyer from Sault Ste. Marie,
who is- one of Mr. Pugsley's "bete
noirs" and who first saw the light of
day in a Yorkshire vicarage. Richard
Stuart Lake, brother of Sir Percy
Lake, who left his Lancashire home to
take up land in Saskatchewan, and
is one of the stalwarts of the Opposition from the West. Then last,- but
not least, comes Edward Arthur Lancaster, who sits for ..Lincoln, and was
born within the sound of Bow Bells.
When Mr. Lancaster is not serving
the public from a levelcrossingspoint
of view, he is plotting the destruction of the Senate. One of his ancestors must have been Guy Fawkes, for
Mr. Lancaster has a bomb which he
is about to explode, which, if the
fuse catches fire and Sir Wilfrid Laurier does not extinguish it, will result
in the disappearance: of the. Upper
Chamber. . Of the various natibhaltiea
which make up the Commons, the little coterie of Englishmen is by no
means insignificant, both as regards
ability and industry.
A  Toronto   Practical   Joke.
This is not so much an anecdote as
it is a warning. As a result of the
trouble between the Toronto Electric
Light Co. and the city, some active
young men have planned a practical
joke. It has been played , upon a
number of people, and anyone who
has a telephone may be victimized.
It is so simple that a person falls
easily into the trap. VOh a cold evening you will be sitting by the grate
fire reading and feeling glad that
you do not have to.face the chilly
winds, whien the telephone rings. You
go to the 'phone and tho following
conversation ensues:
-    '?Is that Mr. A.?'!     y
"Y^s.;
"This is the T.EjL. speaking. You
-���know * we-haye .'been having considerable trouble lately. Would.you mind
letting us know if the arc light ab
th ��� corner of the street is burning?"
Deceived by the business-like voice,
you express your willingness to bo
obliging. It is necessary for you to
go to the bottom of the .verandah
steps or even, to the sidewalk to secure the desired information, ond you
return shivering to the 'phono in
about fivo minutes.
"Yes," you soy, "the light is burning."
"Well, the city says they do not
need, it," soys the voice at the otber
���ond of tho line. "Will you kindly blow
it out?"
Then ho rings oft, and you soy
things.���Saturday Night.
Mother's Pet.
That brooking off an engagement ia
at least a littlo more serious than
tho comic papers would havo us believe is tho lesson which a Toronto
man of some; thirty-five yc ars learned
two or throo weeks ago. The girl,
���who was, at least a doson years younger than l.a,. left hor position and was
well on with the preparations for her
marriage when tho man's mother very
strongly objected to tho proposed mar-
Tno son thereupon broko off tho engagement.
A few nights later ho was at a
danoo whioh was attended by many
of tho friends of tho disappointed girl,
bnt ho didn't roaliKQ how his action
had turned them against bim.
"May I havo tho pleasure of tho
next dancoP" he asked ono of thom.
"Woll," said the young lady, frigidly, "hadn't you bettor ask your mother P"
*bet good digestion wan en appetite, end hsstth on both'"

Bowel trouble is tho cause of most
of the ailments from which little
ones suffer. When baby's bowels are
not working regularly illness is sure
to appear, but when the bowels are
regular the little one is usually bright,
active nnd happy. No other medicine
for babies has such good effect on tho
bowels ns has Baby's Own Tablets.
They make their action regulnr, sweeten tho stomach and promote good
health. Concerning them Mrs. Freeman Feenor, of Barry's Cornor, N.S.,
writes: "I can hoartily recommend
Baby's Own Tablets for all tho troubles from which little ones suffer.
My baby girl was troubled with her
bowels and was so small and puny I
thought we would Ioobo her. I sow
Baby's Own Tablets advertised -. ond
began giving thdm to her and now
Bho is a big, healthy, happy baby.
Fdr this I thank the Tablets, and I
always keep thom in tho house."
The Tablets nro sold by medicine
dealers or by mail at 25 conts a box
from Tho Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,

I'aUo not loo that X   Alfred Hegansburff, of  The Ooldnn ftnnnrtimitv  As will be seen from the news item elsewhere in this  issue, the coal miners have laid down their tools throughout  the Crows Nest mining centers, and with this information,  is given an account from a reliable source, of the wholesale  exodus which is now taking place, of miners, businessmen  and others, who owing to the stoppage of the industry up^n  which their bread depends, are forced to seek another field  to find an immediate opening for their labor and enterprise.  Right at this moment, hundreds of families in the coal  region, are wondering where to go and what to do.  This is Creston's opportunity. We have in this district  large tracts of the very finest land, of proven fruit land, and  upon which the large majority of the men from the coal  towns could find profitable, productive employment. The  best class of coal-miner is the right class of man to take up  fruIt-sTowluc*'* He possesses tbe necessary knowledge of  explosives, which will enable him to clear the land at the  minimum of expense, and he is used to work, the "Get. something for nothing brigade," steer clear of tae coal pits.  y To men of the calibre of these striking miners, Creston  should present a powerful inducement. On a fruit farm,  the troubles and uncertainties of employment would be ail  forgotton, the fruit farmer owns his own Job. and comes as  near to receiving the full product of his toil, as it is possible  to get anywhere on earth, outside the tropics. He is secure  alike, from the tyranny of Capital and the even more  burdensome yoke of the labor unions, whilst he exchanges  the perils and labors of the monotonous life underground,  for a life of health and freedom in the sunshine and fresh air  of the best climate in Canada.  NOW Mr. Miner, get out of your groove, and  become a contented fruit farmer. Come to Creston, leave  the coal holes for keeps, and get a home on a fruit ranch in  The Glorious Kootenays.  IS YOUR NAME MARY OR GEORGE?  There is a movement on foot, headed by his Excellency  the Govenor-Generai of Canada, with the object of enabling  all the u Georges'* of the Empire to present a coronation  gift to the King. Subscriptions from 5 cents up to 5 dollars  will be accepted. Not to be outdone, the "Marys" of the  of the empire are collecting tor a similas gift to be presented  to Queen Mary. The '* Marys" were a trifle late in start,  ing but any mere mau will be willing to wager that by coronation day they will have a list of subscribers that will make  the " Georges " open their eyes wide witli wonder.  WHO LS THE CHAMPION?  The shades of night were falling fast, when an uncouth  smoke begrimed individual, walked with a heavy foot, into  this office. I have, an announcement to make and a chall-  ange to issue, he shouted "I am the champion stump blower  of the Creston District have today blown over 100 stumps,  , and am prepared to back myself to blow more stumps in  less time, than any man on earth". And with these brave  words spoken, he stumped out of thft office.

Stories which have been circulated at  different times of terrible diseases  caught from the wearing of false hair,  are being brought pretty close to home  at the present moment. Dr. J*. E. Lab-  erge of the Provincial Board of Health.  is about to issue a statement to ihe  effect that tbe plague which is causing  suoh frightful suffering and death in  China, may be brought into Canada by  false hair. The officers of the Health  Department are making inquiries at the  various hair stores throughout the big  Canadian Cities, in order to discover  what proportion of the switches sold by  the dealers come from China.  The men -who coadnct the htir  business state that they import the bulk  of their goods from Germany, but they  add that Chinese hair is also on sole in  Canada. It is claimed that most of tha  corpses taken to the morgues in the  Plague-stricken districts of China are  minus pigtails, and the reason is that  the hair has been taken by agents of the  hair companies.  However, she troubles of those   who  wear Chinese hair do not concern the  residents of Creston, people of the valley  are quite capable of growing a good  head of hair of their own.

The daughter of one of Glasgow's  wealthiest merchants recently eloped  vfith a skating rink instructor.  1 Some time ago she went on 'a visit  to a distinguished Ayrshire family,  and first met her lover at a skating  .rink at Ayr, where he was employed  as an instructor.  T'..e attraction was mutual, and during the remainder of her stay she was  a constant visitor at the rink. In duo  course she returned to her home in  the west end of Glasgow, and shortly  afterwards the young man secured a  situation as instructor at the Victoria  road rink, the first skating pavilion  opened in Glasgow.  At last they made up their mind ta  elope, anZ a few weeks ago, in Edinburgh, the couple, duly accompanied  by two witnesses, were- united in matrimony by a sheriff. On the following day they set off for London to  spend their- honeymoon. The father  followed, and after a stormy interview,  the young wife returned to Glasgow  with her father. The husband followed later, and the next chapter of the  romance has yet to be written.  Before becoming a skating instructor  the husband was employed in an insurance office. He is said to be a son  of the proprietor of an hotel in Paisley, and is cf the same age a3 tho  bride.  Besides being an heiress, the young  wife is understood to possess already  a small fortune, which rumor puts at  $40,000.

A fine old castle it is, too,  once a stronghold of the McCarthys.  Th ������������������ country all about it ig beautiful,  notably on the way out, around the  pretty St. Anne Shandon Church,  where for a sixpence or a shilling to  the sexton you can hear again  The  bells of Shandon that sound  so  grand on  The pleasant waters of the river Lee.  Now, to kiss the blarney stone you  should be of a thin, wiry build. Stout  peopie nnd souiG difficulty because of  the bending required, which is why  one well known pastor admitted to  his congregation that the best he could  do was to put the handle of his umbrella to the stone and then kiss the  umbrella. You should first remove  your coat and jacket and anything'  .th:.t is likely to fall from your pockets when you are held upside down  (women seldom attempt the feat), because if you do not they will drop  down to the moat below. And be careful of your movements, for they will  show you even now the tree that broke  the fall (and the head) of th^ last man  who slipped. If you should fall, of  course  n  means death.  Two fellow tourists will grab you  by your ankles; then you will sit  bac.������ like a woman washing a third  story window on the outside and' bend  down, clutching two parallel iron bars  set in the granite, until your head  is hanging as low as it can hang. Your  head by then should be in the em-  urasure the top sione of which is the  blarney stone. You will forget, if you  can, what will happen to you if you  slip, while you apply your lips to  the top stone. Then, you sing out  and your tourist friends will pull you  back by your ankles.  From then on you are qualified to  nan., out the blarney, for into your  speech in future will con*e a beguiling quality that was not there before.  But do the Corkonians kiss the  blarney stone? I put the question  to one man there. A twinkle came  int) his eyes. y  "Sure," said he, "what is the good  at all to be kissing an owld gray stone  when Cork is full of pretty girls waiting to be kissed?"  Something in that, too, we  thought as we hurried for the train  that was to take us to Killarney.  Coronation  Memoirs.  Perhaps the most calamitous of all  coronation days in England was that  of William the Conqueror.  After the coronation oath, whereby  ths xse^v. monsrCi, promsseo to protect the Church and to execute judgment and mercy, the archbishop put  the usual question:  "Will y������,u have this Prince to be  your King?"  A clamorous shout of assent from  the assembled/English so startled the  Norman soldiers outside that they  immediately set out burning and  plundering, believing the English  had revolted.  Charles Stuart had a most unfortunate day. The royal barge stuck  in the mud of the Thames; the sermon sounded like a funeral oration;  an earthquake shock was felt during  the ceremony; and, finally, the herald  pronounced him the "dubitable-heir,  instead ot the "indubitable" heir.  When George III. was installed On  the. throne, the master of ceremonies  forgot the Sword of State, and the  chair and canopy for the. banquet......  And as he moved down the Abbey  with the great circlet on his head,  the large diamond dropped out.  Have You Noticed It?  "Take a couple of coins out of your  pocket," remarked the wise man,  "one with King Edward's head and  the other with Queen Victoria's."  "Right!" said the friend.  "Notico anything peculiar?", asked  the wise man.  "Can't say I do," said the friend.  "Well, look again, and you will see  that, while Queen Victoria is repro.  sonted fncing to the left. King Edward faces to the right.  "Now," ho went on, "procure one  of tho George V. coins just issuer!  from tho British Mint, 'nd you will  see thnt our present King is shown  facing tov tho left."

His  weird taste in literature, which enabled  him to enjoy the lightest and trashiest  novels,* was merely the call of bis aim-  pier brain elements, neglected and suppressed by tbe constant exercise of the  higher reasoning powers.

Opium, cocaine, chloral., bromides,  all are employed either to relieve bodily pain or stifle the overinsistent and  worrying brain. But, as in the case of  alcohol, the relief brought by tbese  drugs is usuailly paid for at a high  rate of interest, lii fact, the troubles  which are temporarily forced into the  background by such indulgence seem  to grow in direct proportion to the  degree of Indulgence and simply awaii  the reckoning day, when the long evaded life burden must be taken up with  its added weight or life's journey, for  ever terminated.  These   remarks   do   not   apply,   of  course, to the intelligent  and proper  administration of such Remedies hy n  physician.    It Is part ef a physician's  duty to relieve pain, both uientaf and  physical, but it too often happens that  a   narcotic   properly   administered   in  one instauce Is carelessly again taken,  without medical advice, and tlie foun  dation of a lifelong habit is laid   V  Headache Remedies.  A great deal of harm is done by.'''the  self administration of, headache remedies, mostly of tbe^ coal tar ;; class  These remedies have their place.Vbui  should ..be used under a physician's  guidance. Many headaches can he re  lleved by simple remedies. Bathing  the forehead with a little bay rum or  rubbing witb a menthol pencil, simple  rest or a dose of salts will often, prove  ��������� sufficient Tbe constant use of V head  ache remedies; is more than likely to  iprbve irritating to the kidneys, aside  ;from tbe depressing action on .the  heart Aromatic ammonia, strychnine  or some other beast stimulant should  always: be within the*'reach of those  who are so ill*udvlsed-<is to use head  ache powders more or less regularly.  The causes of headaches are so nu  merous as to cover almost the entire  range of diseased conditions. So call  ed "biliousness" is one of the common  causes. , This is nothing... other than  poisoning from the retained" ' products  of indigestion. Bile may have little  or nothing tovd'o with it.'but calomel  or some other brisk , evacuam will  clear the systipna of> the poison and re  Tieve the symptoms.  Eye strain is also a very frequent  cause of headache. The-folly of swal  lowing drugs tb relieve such trouble  is evident It is comparable to knock  Ing a man Insensible in order to relieve  his pain. Properly fitted glasses wili  usually relieve eye strain. But In  some cases eye strata is due to overuse  or improper use of the eyes. Such  cases are readily relieved by rest and  attention to proper illumination or position while reading.  Abuse of Cathartics.  As a rule, cathartics should only be  used as. emergency remedies in acuie  conditions, as colds,  biliousness, indi  gestion.- etc.    A .'lenueaey ��������� lo costive:  ness can usually be overcome by nut  't"B*������S*'t      'itAyft^iflg " * "V^?*\T^i^gg^"p-Brg"      fretrt        l^������-i.������Sfi\lu    '  *m ������*���������   ��������� ������ ������7*AB*7xaa������..������9������      .. ������^* uigif^AU-rV    (-UC .  uv# ** x"a������-r  is very much like drugging Vthe nerv  ous system���������the  drug, becomes  master, but the time comes when the slave  will not obey the master, and a coudl  tion  of  semi-paralysis  of the  bowel,  function exists.

Since then every colliery  disaster has found, the British public  eager to aid the widows and children/  left behind.  The Britsher is as generous to hie  fellow-beings abroad as he ie to thos������  at home; 'When the Seine rose and  caused such widespread damage a  ye"ar ago the British public, through  the medium of a Mansion House fund,  sent over nearly $360,000 for the help  of their continental neighbors. v  Strange to say, the firBt Mansion  Houso fund was, ina,ugurated to relieve Paris. This Awas for the relief  of the sufferers in the siege by th������  Germans in 1871. Over $600,000 was  collected and sent to Paris, partly in  money and partly in clothing, food,  and other necessaries., The Parisians  did not want money so much as food,  ..for money was fairly plentiful, and  John. Bull responded to the appeale  of the starving by sending oyer sixty-  eight tons a day or two after the  siege was raised. Since that first fund  the Mansion House alone has received  nearly $30,000,000 out of the pockets of  the generous Anglo-Saxon.        A  When the terrible earthquake at  Messina startled the world: with its  dramatic, suddenness and its consequent misery Great Britain was the  ���������'iorejgn country that contributed most  tor'the relief ofv.the-refugees.; Over  $600,000 was rapidly collected and  ~.despatched, to Italy; Germany coming  ���������next with $400,000, A and: France with  $300,000. Newspapers all over the  country opened their columns for the  receipt ;oi money from their readers,  and the appeal thus made.was,not iu  vain."'' -..., ���������,!,.: ,y,...-xy s-yx.y  In 1878 the Mansion "House opened  a fund for the great Indian famine.  In"response to the appeal of theALoild  Mayor, the huge sum of $3,|450,00p was  extracted from the, pockets of the;nation. In 1897 another fund was organized to aid the Hindus, over half  , a million pounds being sent td!-India.  Altogether England has sent $10,000,-  000 in one way and another ^d relieve our1'fellow-subjects in India,  Such figures are a splendid tribute to  the generosity of the British public.  During the Boer War, however^ Bri;  tain really rcrs to the occasion and  showed what she was capable' of in  emergencies. The Mansion House left  all its glorious records far behind  when it raised over $5,600,000 for the  Transvaal "War fund. In additionto  this $850,000 was given to the fund for  the Transvaal refugees and $585,000  for the C.I.V.'s. That was the Mansion House alone, and when it is recalled that there were three other  funds of a similar kind in existence  at that time one is astonished at the  ��������� capacity of John Bull's pockets. Altogether nearly $20,000,000 was y subscribed. during" the days of-the 'war.  Britain paid generously for the magnificent help that her soldiers and. sailors gave her.  VThe greatest individual sum ever  given to a: fund, apart; from thev permanent charitable organizations, was  the $125,000 given by Sir Thbmas'Lip-  ton to the Poorest of the. Poor VLondou  Jubilee Dinner Fund in 1897.  Birds  For the Table.  Game Warden A.

Remsnssconcos of the Canadian Hymn  Writer.  Within walking distance of the town  of Clinton, Ont., on tho road leading  to Goderich, in the home purchased  by his father before the former town  existed,  lives   a  pioneer  of   seventy- j  four years who knew Joiseph Scriven,  the hymn-writer, says E .M. Lindsay  in  The Globe.    Although always  industrious and persevering in business,  my friend the pioneer took, and still  takes,   ample time  for   reading. both  of   the   profitable   and   pleasureabie  kind.     I remember once, after he had  been reading the "Master Christian,"  by  Marie  Corelli,  his   remarking   to  me  that -I ought to  read  it.    After;  Slaving done so, I asked him if he had  ever known anyone as good as "Cardinal    Bonpere,"     whose     character  seemed to me to have been  a little  overdrawn  by  the  distinguished  author.   "Yes," he said; "his name was  Joseph. Scriven.   He lived just across  the road from us, and 'bached* with  another man.    I have worked whole  days with him, exchanging work, and  he  had  been   in  my  father's  house  moreVthan once.   It was the time that  the Grand Trunk Railway was being  built  -through   to   Goderich,   and   he  would go  on  Sundays  andy read the  Bible and speak lovingly and kindly  to.;.the  men ;working   there, .getting  small thanks for ihis pains.    He was  an Irishman of good family and education;  being * a graduate  of Trinity  College,    Dublin.    He    oared    little,.-  however, ior this world's goods, and  was always ready and pleased to help  others.  Vin e-PPearance he was, a big man,  of pleasant, countenance, and belonged; to  the  religious  sect  called  Plymouth   Brethren.    He   lived   across  there only a year or two, beloved by  the few who knew him fOT his genuine piety:   He was the author of that  hymn  beloved  by  all  Christians entitled  'What  a -Friend We. Have  in  Jesus'."  The  hymn   referred   to   was  set  to  music by  Charles  Crozart  Converse,  LL.D.,  who    was    born    in  Warren,  Mass;, in 1832. /  A lady  still   living   near   the   old  Scriven home says:  "Yes,  often   I  have  heard  mother  speak of dear Miv, Scriven.

Over the entire  length of the three mile march hundreds of thousands of people cheered  and waved Sags and otherwise encouraged the lads, and as the bands broko  forth In martial strains the lads swung  along like so many veterans. Those  who witnessed theparade were amazed  with the soldierly appearance and the  precision with which;: the boys pes*-  formed their evpiutionsi,       ,  There were many features in the  parade; showing the scout from the  recruit stage to the,finished product.

The one discouraging thing is, as la  often the case, to meet some stupid,  bigoted, conceited old ass who thinks  be knows all and can't even raise a  good crop of weeds. In the decade  that is about to close. there la truly  something inspiring. In tbat short  time,7 since my old "Tree Doctor" raised the cry for "our wounded friends  the trees" and the Cleveland newspapers re-echoed the call to the nation*  practically all the newspapers have  leni��������� their aid. and the. great magazines have done noble work, and ths  education is thorough, but so slow.  As yet there is not 5 per cent of tho  adults that are awake to the reaL deplorable condition of the trees.

He has a; house  on the shores of Lake Sixncoe, where,  like the true sportsman that he is,  he can enjoy a little of the life of the  hunter, and he always makes the most  of the duck shooting season in the  fall of the year. Gaudaur uses wild  ducks as decoys. ; After clipping their  wings he puts them into the water  with a'weighted string tied to their  feet. Then he waits on the shore un-.  til a flock of ducks appear. on the  horizon.
