Dear Sir :���������  I .was much interested iu the letter by  O.' J, Wigen re government loans to  rinchers and tarmers, and I would like  to point out to him and the rest of your  readers, one of the chief reasons why  we do not get cheap Government loanB  in the Dominion, the same as granted  to the farmers in most other countries,  In looking over a list of our members of  the Dominion Parliament I find that we  ������������������������������������-���������-.���������.������������������   -..-'.  have thirty--eight- members- including  five Cabinet Ministers and Prei_ier-Bor-'  den, who .are shareholders'in? the 25  babking companies.' doing business; in-  the Dominion. Last year those members  received something like seventy-five  tnousand dollars, or an average of about  two thousand dollars each. No w the  farmers are one ;p_- the chief borrowers  from, the banks,,can we then expect  thesst.members to vote against their own  privajte incomes. I think not, it is  against human nature to rob -"ourself  to benefit someone you know? nothing  abont. So long as the farmers of this  couniry vote toelect bankers to represent ihetn in parlia-nent they cannot expect to get anv legislative parsed Which  "���������:���������' .f   ���������;   i :v     "  will benefit them-to any extent.

Obtaining a dugout, they paddled  into deep water. The servant was  already barefooted and the Englishman himself took off his shoes and  stockings so that his bare feet might  have as good a hold as possible on th*  smooth bottom of the canoe. A bait  was attached to a, heavy rattan, and  soon a tug and a plunge indicated that  the crocodile was rast io one end. Immediately the canoe began to move  through the water. After a protracted struggle the Englishman maa-  aged to get the crocodile within a few  yards of the canoe. At one moment  the open jaws would surge out of the  broken water -and snap together in  unpleasant proximity to the men's  legs; the next moment the heavy tail  would swing free of the water and  with the weight of a Calling pule would  hit th*; side of iue canoe a blow iliui  made it shiver.  As the crocodile surged close to the  canoe and the open mouth appeared  above the water the servant sllppel  a noose of ttout cord over the upper  jaw and pulled it tight some six inches  behind the roi'it o2 Us nostrils. Then  with a quick turn of the wrist, he  s ipped the slack or the cord round  under the lower jaw. He drew the  cord tight, and the teeth of each jaw  pressed home into the sockets of the  other. The servant now grasped the  point of the long, narrow head with  one hand and with the other rapidly  wound ths cord round tho clinched  mouth-  Another noose was slipped over a  fore leg.

A railroad system however caret'ull/  organized and efficient y manned is a  human device and accidents are bound  $fo Occur-although reduced to a mlni-  fmum.' When accidents, in the form  of collision occur, it generally follows  that many valuable lives are lost and  .that a number of expensive cars are  reduced to matchwood. Passengers  realize that their greatest danger is  telescoping, 'out/few of them know that  telescoping is due to the fact that the  body of the car merely rests upon the  trucks and is unconnected with It save  for a two inch centre pin of negligible  importance. .  Were It possible to m,ake a solid unit  of body and truck the problem would  appear to have been solved. This  however cannot be done for the one  must be readily detachable from the  other to facilitate repairs. How then  to make thsravdetachable at need and  yet a:solid unlt'ln operation Is a question that has ueen solved by the Grand  Trunk System after nearly two years  careful work and its solution can fairly be claimed to mark the greatest  advance in railroading since Westing-  house brought out his air-brake?

When assembled the device resembles nothlb,.,  so much as two gigantic nuts, one super imposed upon th i other, and held  together by easily removed vertical  keys and pin. Y In a collision the  force of the impact stops the trucks  of each car but since the object that  has been struck continues to move  and the bodies have a tendency to follow them; while the sudden application of the brakes to the trucks simu-  taneous with; the impact also causes  the bodies to move, these last become partlaly or entirely shifted from  their normal position : upon the trucks.  The impact strikes the platforms of  trucks first of all and if these remained even the danger of telescoping  would be small but when the bodies,  are shifted one inch higher than another, its platform climbs upon the  lower platform and the two bodies  crush into each other. *  It is evident that some force must  be applied to counter act the movement of the bodies and the only one  aval able has never been taken advantage of���������brake force which acts  upon the wheels that are attached to  jne-dicine  ���������world.  throughout    the     western  ���������������&  - A Bridge of Ants  A species cf ants which spin silk  'Is  common  in hot countries.

Vozey Strong,  Lord Mayor of London, In uoiiiiit-ct.loii  with tho movoment for an all-British  chopping wook.  This is why a device had  to be planned that would make truck  and body a unit so as to allow the  brake to act upon them both. In addition the joining of the track to the  body hangs the weight of the former  upon either end of the latter and to  that extent helps to prevent the body  from rising up. ,  Impressed y-'Ith CertalQ accidents.  Mr. J. Coleman, superintendent "������f  the Grand Trunk Car Department at  Point St. Charles, started to work  upon this idda, as has been said neaA--  ly two years ago. I.ast. August he  submitted his.invention, which he describes as a centrifugal lock in the  centre p^ate of the car, to the Presi-  "dent, Mr. Chamberlin, who was so  impressed with its value that he ordered the device to be added to" all  I future equipment and at the present  time it is being built into 96 Grand  Trunk'Pacific passenjger cars.  The weight of these cars varies  from 80,000 lbs for a baggage car *o  115,000 pounds for a passenger coach,  while the weight of trucks varies from  12,000 pounds for a four wheeled truck  to 20,000 pounds for a six wheeled  truck.   ���������  Within the past month or so the  Board of Railway ..Commissioners, evidently impressed also with the danger  ot telescoping and its cause, gave notice to the Canadian Railways that at  a future session it would Inquire what  was to be done to obviate the danger  and why they shou d *ot be made to  fasten body -uid truck together in  some way. For this reason nothing  has- boen said by the Grand Trunk  about Its device as the nompnny was  desirous of obtaining first the approval of the Commissioners, but Grand  Trunk officials feel no small pride that  In this important matter they Imvo  boen the plo.ieers of all the railroads  of the world and are confident that  they have added immenmirably to tho  Bafety of passongor travel.

After I had received my finishing  touches and hecorae a citizen I made  so bold as to inquire from what peculiar dispensation of providence the  ability was given to detect one molecule of smoke in a hundred cubic  feet of pure iir. The old boy smile i  and binding "le.to secrecy, imparted  the reason of his wonderful ability.  Then he took me to a boy's vacated  room and told me to wet my finger*  and rub my nostrils with it and sniff.  Lo and behold, where before ther*  seemed no taint in* the atmosphere  was now detected that smell of old tobacco smoke! Since then I have  taught school myself and hava used  the trick occasionally, entirely for experimental   purposes, however.  I have also sought the scientific explanation, but with little success. It  may, however, be somewhat analogous  to the process of tasting. You know  it is impossible to taste anything that  is not dissolved in water or is not a  liquid itself. So the moisture on the  nostrils must carry the smaller particles of smoke in a more or less damp  state to the olfactory nerve ends and  thus make "che smell more apparent.  At least this is the only explanation  I have ever found for the phenomenon.  The same thing, can also be used  for detecting other odors and I have  found it useful on a number of occasions for this purpose, both in analytical chemistry, when only a small particle of a certain material is available for analysis and in detecting  faint perfume from flowers that ar������^  ordinarily quite odorless.

Mentios  Old  Man Cuts' Wife's Throat at  Her  rvcquestt-,   Then Hangs Himself  A few days ago when a police  magistrate v/ho had been summon-vl  by'the coiicler_e.entered the room occupied by M. and Mme. Jan Vail  den Bosch in the Rue de' Transvaal, he  found the woman, who was 73 years  old, dying on the floor with her  throat cut, while her husband's bodv  was suspended from a hook ' in the  celling.  The man had Idled his wife with  her permission, and then committed  suicide in order to end a life of poverty.  The couple lived in Belleville, which  is one of the slum quar>ers of Paris,  for six years, and made a precarious  living by selling odds and ends of  every kind, from o'd bicycle tyres and  rusty tools co imitation jewelry, at  the weekly market which is held at  the La Villette gate of Paris.  M. Van den Bosch was formerly a  very rich man. His wife s father had  been official painter to the court of  the Netherlands, and his pictures and  miniatures sold for high prices. Ho  had villas at Nice and Ostend. and  his daughter was brought up In lux  nry. When she married M. Van  den Bosche, however, her father had  lost his fortune and she was penniless.  Both M. Van den Bosch and hlo  wife were regarded by their nelcjhbors  in Belleville as aristocrats. Despite  their poverty they had no friends and  the-' were always very reserved.  Their one amusement was to walk to  St. Mande, where there was a bowling  club, of which M. Van den Bosch was  a member. The old man played bowls  while hla wife looked on.  Two days ago one member of  the bowling club heard Van den Bosch  say to his wife: When there Is nothing left we shall kill ourselves.  Of late they sold practically noihina*  at the weekly market; thev owed two  mouths' rents and some tradesmen's  bills, and on Wednesday they were un-  ab'e to buy food.  When the concierge could not gala  admittance to their room she summoned a magistrate and two gendarmes.  A. locksmith tried unsuccessfully to  force the door, whereupon a pollc-3-  man climbed through a window.  M. Van den Bosch's body was stiii  warm. Beside his wife lay a bloodstained    razor.

Peking.���������^--China's reply to the recent  note  of  Great   Britain   calling  upon  China to come to ah agreement with  her regarding Tibet, was de-iyered to  the  British  ambassador  here.   It   Is  courteous in tone, but firmly declines  to negotiate a new treaty.      It cites  the Anglo-Tibetan agreement of 1908,  under which Great Britain agreed not  to interfere in the administration of  Tibet or annex her territory,  China  undertaking to prevent other nations  froin doing the same.      It points out  that the agreement also provides that  China must police the trade routes In  Tibet and protect communications."  The note insists that China has properly regarded all her obligations.  China has found it necessary, it says?  to send large numbers of troops into  Tibet to do police duty, but the Chinese government sees no necessity for  Great Britain to send troops there  from India. It explains that it is  as much to the interest of China.-as of  England to maintain the present status in Tibet.  Regret is expressed in the note tbat  the Indian _overnment sho_'d close  all the roaC:s between China and Tibet by way of India declaring that  such an act Is. rarely resorted to except between nations at war. It regrets v Great; Britain's threat not to  recognize t^e new Chinese republic,  saying that recognition would be mutually advantsiseoiis.

London Financial Paper 'Repudiates  Recent Aspersions on Dominion  London.���������In the preface to the annual report of Canadian companies in  which it is interested, the British Empire seeks to defend Canada's goo I  name. Alluding to the alleged over-|  borrowing, the report says the truth!  must be admitted that Canadian cit-.  ies have been a. lowed In the past to  borrow too freely, and at too low a  rate of interest, thus encouraging extravagance. It warns the British investor to beware of the promises of  huge profits i'rom real estate, and says  that promoters in,the past have taken  advantage of Canada's great prosperity and great future to line th->jr  poQl-",?ts at the expense of the British  'public.

Other   verses   bearing  upon.*;  this which should be most prayerfullVj'  considered  are  Ps.   xxxiii, 6,  9,  an<  Heb. xi, 3, which affirm that the creating word brought into existence that-  which God did not exist before.      ~T  That the creation    *vas    by    Him  whom we know as the Son of God !_':  most plainly stated in John   1,    1-3;  Col. i, 12-17.    Thus believing the flrst;j  verse  iij, the bible,  one can readily  believe every miracle and wonderful  record in the who"e book, according'  to Jer. xxxli, 17, and find comfort tw\  it as  the prophets and apostles  did?  (Isa.   xi,  28 31;   Acts iv, 24-31). The  words "In  t'ae beginning God" have  helped some whom I know, for they  have said, I Trill not begin* that whic_  I cannot begin with God. We do well  to pray tbat all our works mav he begun, continued and ended In Him.  In the second verse the R. V.>  reads: And the earth was (or became)  waste ana void. in Isa. xt</, 18, we  read: He created it not a waste. We-'j  know therefore, thr.t the second verse"'  does not describe it as He created  it. There are only two other places  where the words translated: without  form and void, are used together (IsaY  xxxiv, 11, Jer. iv, 23) and in each  there is a aesiVation because of a  judgment coused by a judgment because of a great rebellion., The suggestion by Pember in "Earth s Earliest Ages" that possibly the devil before* he fell was in control of this  earth may he well worth considering^  but we must wait.  Oyer this waste and void condition  the spirit of God moved, and God said  "Let there be light, and there was!  light"-���������more literally: Light be, and  light was. Thus early in the b_o_  we are made acquainted with God as  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and are  shown that al' things are accomplished by the Si'irit through the word.  In the first verse we have already noticed a four times seven of letters,  andr if we count we shall fir a in our  lesson today the name of God just  five times seven, suggesting an abundant completeness (i, 20-23; ii, 1-3).  In this section God ls seen working  unhindered by His   Spirit   and   His'  word, and when He is allowed to work  as unhindered in us we shall be perfectly new creatures to His glory.?l,et:-  those who decire to know God' coiintY  tbe number of times that the different ���������  verbs are associated with j^lla name*;.  and do not accept my figureB unless?  you prove them correct:   Said  (10)i?  saw (7), divided, 5; called, 6; created;?  5: blessed, 8; made, 6; rested,"2J set??  ended, perished, sanctified, given?!;  it waa so. fl; let, 14.    More Important.?  however, is it to notice that God alone  Is seen working, so it wqs in Christ  when He was here as man and ao it  should be In us (Phil. !!, 18).  Inasmuch as there are ages enough  for all the geological periods between  the first two .verses, I am willing tb ac-.  nept the days as ordinary days, but  let each one be fully persuaded for  himself.  Not onPy have we here the record  of God making by His Spirit nud His  word in earth, air and sea? but we  aro taught by II Cor., Iv, 0, to find an  analogy in the work of God In man,  whose llfo because of sin ls all waste  and void and dark.
