USTRALIA'S REAL  VOTING dTRlNCTH  Every man or woman twenty-one  years of age?, who has lived continuously in any part of Australia for six  months, a British subject or naturalized, is, if not specially disqualified,  entitled to be registered as an elector,  and to be a candidate, without qualification of property or term of occupancy. The franchise is the same for  both Houses. The registers are made  up just before the election. There is  no plural voting, On the other hand,  by a wise liberality which our Progressives-would do well to imitate,  provision was lately made against the  m 44.

This provision���������which incidentally delays the publication of exact results  has, it is believed this time prevented  over 250,000 electors from being excluded from voting, being 12 per cent of  the total poll.

"This was possibly one ofthe most  unique occasions in British history," ��������� he  said. "Two hundred and twenty-three  years ago King William drove James  across the Boyneandgave to England  the Protestant fnith and the open Bible,  which is the foundation of all the principles of the Orange order.

We should all bo glad to  celebrate the battle of the Boyne, where  religious and civil liberty wore  obtained," he said.    It. was not only.a victory  of William 111 over James,   but a victory of liberty over tyranny, a vlotory  of the rights of tho people.   Today the  people reign   and tho pooplo rule.

"We have courses In decorum and  courst!* in composure and courses in  the direction of energy. Then what  reason is there against Inaugurating a  course iu optimism? Why should not  our young people be taught to think  along the path of sunshine, to look for  the brightness in life in a scientific,  methodical way?  Too much of the present-day learning is inclined to.make gloomy people  of us. Smiling, which is a sort of  banner of optimism, has too long been  th-; uncertain matter, of temperament  instead of a reliable habit of life.  As a rule, the majority of persons  arc attracted to others who smile eas-.  ily. The smilers succeed in business  so that success is often said to be the  ea--.se of their smiling when perhaps  it is the opposite which Is true.  They seem to radiate happiness and  opulence, and we say their paths lie  in pleasant places.  Hut maybe they lighted the paths  with their own smiles first;  There must be a way In which  thought can he brushed up with light  touches. Athletics teach the man to  control his temper; the gymnasium  braces up his muscles; a course In  ethics seta his face toward the moral  standard. There surely is a place for  a course In smiling.

It closely resembles  the kiwis except for its short beak,  and for having afters-hafts after its  feathers.  For a long time it was hoped that  in some of the backward mountainous regions of New Zealand some living  specimen of tho  moa  might  be  found.  But the expedition   of    an  Austialian naturalist. Herr Reis-  ckek, in 1877-8 for this object, was  fruitless, so vhat the question of tho  moa's extinction was considered finally settled, and it is believed to have  occurred a little over BOO years ago.  The fact that it was flightless���������not  having a trace of rudimentary wings  ���������no doubt contributed largely to render it an easy prey to its natural enemies, including man, and thus to  lead to Its early extinction.

WOMEN   SING THE     PRAISES  DODDS KIDNEY PILLS  OF  Origin  of Well   Known  Custom  Was  Respect Shown by Conquered to  Victor  One cf tho most universal customs  when a prominent man dies is the  hoisting of flags on public buildings,  only part of the way up the flag-poles.  This is known as half-mast, but how  many know what the custom means  or how it originated.  To begin with? this practice, was a  military one? Ever since flags were  used in wer It has been the custom  to have tho flag of the superior cr  conquering nation above that of the  inferior or vanquished. When an  army found itself hopelessly beaten  it hauled its flag down far e-iough for  the flag of the victors to be placed  above it on the same pole. This was  a token not only of submission, but  of respect. In like maimer when a  famous soldier died, flags were lowered, not only to indicate respect to  his memory, but to show that he had  succumbed to the great conquero-' of  all, Death���������for whose flag space w&s  metaphorlcilly left at the top of the  flag-staff -  Gibraltar's Story  Gibraltar has beeu an English  stronghold exactly two centuries, for  It was _00 years ago that tho great  aud iinpn gnable fortress .reared by  nature was formally ceded U England. The treaty, signed on April 11,  1713, was, however, but the ofllelal  recognition of what had already taken place, for English troops were already In possession of tho mammoth  rock that guards the gateway of the  Mediterranean, and had been beseiged In vain by the French and Spanish. Twice during the following  fourteen years the Spanish attempted  to retak9 the fortress. Between  1782 and 1793 the Spaniards returned  to the attack and in one battle 40,-  000 allies were ingloriously defeated  and routed by a garrison of 7,000 British. Gibraltar was, in its early days  the gate which kept the Moors out of  Spain. The grizzled soldier in  charge had a daughter at the court  of the Spanish Queen. The King  wronged her. and the old warrior in  rgygnffg gtood buck and let the Moors  through. Spain had many a weary  year of struggle to get them out  again.  i^^ - i    i ii- i ��������� ���������i���������r~~"*  Another Precocious Child  A director of . ne of the great transcontinental railrcads was showing hi3  three year old laughter the pictures  in a work on natural history.

II    01-t  Wooden  Leg That Won a Husband  Augustus Hare used to relate bow a  certain lady was wooed and won for  the sake of her cork leg.  One day, net long after her marriage  she was during her husband's temporary absence, urged by curiosity to open  a wardrobe that had always been kept  religiously fastened, and found therein, to her terror, two wooden legs,  each of which were labelled with the  name of a lady, carefully put away on  one of the shelves.  Filled with dismay, she sought some  mutual acquaintance, to whom she  confided her gruesome discovery, only  to be assured that, although the false  limbs wero indted thoBo of her husband's two former wives, there was  no cause for alarm, for her husband  who had originally wedded a one-legged lady, had been so happy ln his  marriage, that on her death he had  vowed never to mate again Bavo with  a wife similarly circumstanced.  A short time afterwards he met a  lady who fulfilled the required stipulation. Her ho courted a*nd won,  even more felicltioua than the flrst,  had caused him on his bolovod partner's disease, to renew hla former  vow, the outcome of which was his  present happy union. This explanation calmed his wlfo's alarm, fur Bhe  now recognized that tho wooden logs  wore not only morocntos of past but  guarantees of future happiness.

The idea of growing plants hy electricity, which has aroused so much  interest of late, has been referred to  as the "last cry" in gardening and  Sericulture, but, as a matter oi fact,  the idea is nearly, a coupie of centuries old. As long ago as. 1747 electricity, as an aid to plant cultiva-,  tion, was advocated by a writer in  the old "Gentlsman's Magazine," who  mentioned the astounding results he  had achieved from electrifying a myrtle seventeen times.  . This is but one of the many interesting cases oi the antiquity of  modern inventions, related by Mr.  H. E. Dudeney in ihe April number  of The Strand Magazine. It is astonishing, hut nevertheless true, that  more than 2,000 years ago Egyptian  priests were using a penny-in-the-slot  machine, the mechanism of * which  was practically identical with that of  the machines to be found on every  railway station to-day. The ancient  machine, the inventor of which was  Hero, was used for supplying sacred  water at the doors of the temples. .A  coin was dropped from tlie top, fell  on one end of a balanced horizontal  lever, which, being depressed, opened  a -valve suspended from a chain ou  the other end. and the water thus be  gan to flow. When the lever had been!  depressed to a certain angle the coin!  fell off, and the lever, being weighted, returned to its seat, and thus cut  off the supply.  ! The taximeter was in use about a  hundred yeais ago, and was sold in  various qualities in Leadenhall street,  London, at from 25s. to ������8 8s., while  not only the modern telegraph but  also wireless telegraphy was foreseen  as long ago as 1633, when Henry Van  Etten suggested, in a little book called   u._a       ._  _._  ,   __.   ���������   '"Mathematioall Recreations," that a  will be the 'first Idea that will pop Into   person in London might communicate  <*"  Coal  f  Lord  Joicey,  World's    Largest  i pwner, Began on Errands.  A remarkable man in many Tespects  Ja Lord Joicey, the millionaire coal-  owner, -who was recently presented  with a portrait of himself at the Newcastle (Eng.) Chamber of Commerce,  to celebrate his fifty years' commercial eare_ir. Lord Joicey is the largest coalowner in the world. There  are many people in Newcastle who  remember the day3 when he started  lif3 on the quay in his uncle's office,  {nutting up the shutters and going for  etters. Lord Joicey's father is said  to have b.eu a worker in tbe pits in  his young days.  It was not long, however, before  the future peer's striking energy and  business capacity led to success and  fair fortune, and he was making  money rapidly when his uncle's death  placed him in possession of enormous  wealth. Some idea of the extent of  Lord Joicey's resources may be gathered when it is mentioned that- some  time flc-o his firm took the lease of  Lord Durham's pits for $5,500,000, tho  capital expenditure being paid out of  the profits within two years.  A further illustration of Lord  Joicey's vast interests is contained  in a remark which he made in a  speech on the.occasion off the aforementioned presentation. "Business  life," he said, "is a good life. And  to   preside   over   a   concern   which  ' Big Eyes, Big Brain.  "Professor  Laoglcr. a  French _cfi-*_-  fist, bas discovered tbat tbe size of tbe  brain In animals ls  in exact proportion to tbe size of the eyes.   The bigger the eyes  the  bigger the  brains! ���������  Of  course  this  oniy  appiies  io eae'n  class of animal,    x  tiger may  bave  bigger eyes than a man for instance,  but it doesn't follow that it has a big-i  ger   brain.     But   the   tiger   with   big  eyes Is more cunning and brainy the.s  a  tiger   with   small   eyes.     Professor  Laugler,made this remarkable discovery when studying the habits of tbo  flsh known as the dorade or gilthead.  There are two  kinds of dorade.  one  pink and the other gray.    The gray  fish has a much smaller eye than tha  pink one.    The scientist cut open  a  large number of these flsh In his experiments aud was struck by the fact  that the  large eyed  fish  always   had  the largest brain.    He promptly   followed   up   this   discovery   by   teslins  other animals.   He found, for example,  that the little tree frog bad  a  much  larger" eye than the larger marsb frog  and had also a larger brain,    fie asserts that the same rule applies among  bigber animals.

Marston replied under his own name,  but in a different handwriting, saying  that, having been honored by Miss  Hammond's permission to call, be  would do so on a certain date. He hnd,  however, promised his friend Mr. Teall  that he would not involve blm in any  way and begged that Miss Hammond  would, for the present at least, consider the circumstances that bad led to  their meeting confidential.  "Well, now, 1 like this,-" remarked  Marston.?.;''Here.-! am, the hero of a  novel, about to .meet the heroine.

At the appointed time Marston called  on Miss Hammond. She was becomingly dressed, and the lights were turned low that her visitor might not see  ber blushes, for had not a love affair  between her nnd blm all been written  out nnd printed in a book? Marston  was charmed with her appearance, and,  he being a.handsome chap, she wns delighted wltb hiin. He blushed as well  as she, but from a different enuse.  Nevertheless he felt obliged to keep up  the part he was playing for a time at  least.  "Really, I Ilttlo thought when I saw  you among tho roses nnd told my  friend about you that ho was going to  make n novel out of it,"  "But there's* no such scene in the  book," she exclaimed.  "Isn't there? Now 1 remember there  Isn't Ned told me he started the  story that way. but afterward found  another beginning that worked ln better with his plan."  "I'm told," remarked the girl, "that  thero nevor hns; been n caso wherein  two characters In a story drawn from  real persons havo mated."  "Aro you mire of that?" said Marston, with a disappointed look.  "It has never happened."  She nnld this In a  way that gave  Marston encouragement to believe that  tt would hnppcn In this Instance.  As the affair proceeded tho perpetrator of nil this knavery became moro  nnd moro conscious of It nnd consequently much troubled.

Van Etten suggested that if  each of the persons had a needle with  Magnes, and secret notes or alphabets, they would be able to move the  needle and indicate letters, and thus*  convey messages.  In 1644 the possibilities of the submarine were first propounded, while  irom the very earliest times men  have con reived the idea of flying with  wings like birds "There is no reason whatever to doubt the fact that  Arehytas of Tarentum, about 394!  years before the Christian era. con-l  sirueted an autonnaton pigeon that'  would  fly."  i Turning to other latter-day inventions, as they are generally regarded,  it might he mentioned that switchback railways were constructed over;  a hundred years ago, and looping the1  loop was a sensation in Paris in 1333.J  while most people will learn with  surprise that roller-skating, which  came -up as a new invention about  forty years ago, was teing indulged*  in by our forefathers as iar back as!  1829.     ..".  thing to be proud of.

He is keen.ly interested in agriculture, and on his Montgomeryshire  estate haa instituted an agricultural  show for the tenants of his farms.

The London critics in dealing with-  the Royal Academy seem to sufferi  from the same evils which they .find!  in the Academy's exhibition itself.  The  London  Times  observes:  "It is hard for a critic to recognize  merit in the mass of mediocrity, and  promising     painters     are     probably  aware of the fact.    They know that  even   if  their  work   is  hung  it  may  very likely be overlooked by both cri  tics and the public, and therefore they  tend more and more to eUow it elsewhere."  The Daily Telegraph says:  "One must inevitably rpproach the  serious   examination   with   a   feelinstfi  closely akin to dismay.   And this will|  not necessarily  be the fault  nf the]  works exhibited, but a consequence of]  the pictorial noise and confupion, of,  the close packing, of the screaming:  of one work against another in that)  struggle   for   domination- which   not!  always results in the survival of thai  fittest.   Of pure aesthetic enjoyment  there could in any case be no question."  While The Daily Mail declares:  "Tho   Royal   Academy  of   1913   belongs to the last, and not to the pros  ent century.

Stanley  Editor and Maunder  If the Provincial Government is determinedon a crusade  against tlie sea lions iu British Columbia waters it will probably find that the task is a very heavy one. The results  should enure to the great benefit of the salmon industry, aud  on that account a more than ordinary effort towards the destruction of these fish-eatiug pests would be warranted.���������  Colonist,  5":     :*:     -*-  The construction of three additional Dreadnoughts by  the British Admiralty to be ultimately taken over by Canada,  answers the Laurier nonsense that there is no emergency.  The Admiralty gets its information from the greatest diplomatic organization in the world. Laurier gets his from the  Nationalists of Quebec.  The Government is losing no time in preparing for the  construction ofthe interior termin-l elevators for which provision was made last session. Memo--is of the Old Liberal  ministry cannot understand this idea of rush ing needed public works to early completion. Their notion is that good  things of that sort ought to do duty as promises for two or  three general elections at least.  Speaking of the proposal to establish a strict censorship  over plays, literature and newspapers. Professor Stephen  i,eacock says: "I am sure that at present iu Canada the whole  tone of our theatres, our newspapers, and our books is eminently healthful and moral. We have at present an excellent  criminal code directed against those who wilfully violate the  moral standards of the community. New tbrms of interference are not needed; they do harm; they excite a noxious iu-  quisitiveness, and put into things, otherwise quite harmless,  a meaning that they were never intended to couveo". There  is a great deal in this. There are obvious objections to a  censorship, except in the case of moving pictures where the  necessity for it has become obvious though not on the score  of morality. To set up some individual as a judge of what  is and what is not fit to be read or played is foreign to modern ideas and likely to do a great deal more harm than good.  We have got along very well iu Canada without having our  books, plays and newspapers censored. If anything is not  fit for the public to see or hear, there are laws upon the statute book to meet the case.���������Colonist.  *    ���������:*���������    rt-  W. H.

Fowler, Manager Creston Branch  TERI  11 BETS  The difference in the attitude of the  Borden Government and the Liherai  i-lministi*atioii to tbe west is shown in  tin- cabinet recognition. Under the  Laurier regime the west had hub two  cabinet ministers, Hon. Frank Oliver  and Hon. William Tern-pieman���������neither of thfm, to say tlie least, outstanding men. Premier Borden wbeu  he. formed his cabinet took into liis  Government four Western men.  They were Hon. Robert Rogers, Hon.  Dr. Roche, Senator Lougheed, leader  of the Government in tho 'Senate and  Hon. Martin Bin-i-i-ll.  Now the west gets a fifth representative in lion. Arthur Meighen, the  new Solicitor-General. The Borden  Government in its rushing of the Hudson Bay Kiti I way, in the establishment  of a p-T'tiu eominisson and in lhe construction of a, system of Govt-rnnient-  owned elevators has recognised as the  Liberal Government ncwr ������.id, the  growing importance of l.ho west and  lhe necessity for dealing with and solving western problems,  FOREST PROTECTION  Ai THE TELEPHONE  Although among the iimuy iipplinii-  ees with which inventors have sought  |,o supply the modern need for porl.'dih-  wireless telephone and telegrupli coin-  miiuiciit'ion there are none which meet.  fhe requirements of the Forest Pro-  u-cfion organization of the West, y(���������*;  it is hoped thai, the day is not \'nv distil nt. when every lire   warden   wander-  ili^  ill  Ihe   I*, ood.-:   Hill be   ..b]c    I.i   .\<i;ii-  inon help in lighting (Ires wil Imnl 11,<>  delay caused in reaching a telephone  line. Meanwhile, however, lhe nianii.  fail urers of eleel ri.ial appliances have  done a. great deal to uieel, the in,,!- ,,f  I'oieMlry ol'lieials, AI nieel ing-i of |||(.  VN'ei.fei'it Fore.slry and < 'on-ri \.ii mn  A'.Micial ion hiiiibermen have heen  pin i.Yol.u ly i it l.i*i -i-.lied in ihe  rsliil.n r,  of these companies. For instance,  there are not only the 'light telephone  lines, such as those that the Forest  Branch strings rjrom tree to tree so as  to extend-telephone communication in  a rough and ready manner into tlie  woods, bnt there are still lighter wires,  ���������1 miles of which can be carried on a  man's back, which can be nsed as temporary feeders for the main forest  lines. When this field telephone system is installed in any district the efficiency of a tire warden Avill be increased to a tremendous extent. For  instance, suppose he discovers a lire in  its earlier stages, instead of going hack  to the nearest settlement he can rush  to the nearest point of one of the telephone lines, and taking the portable  instrument that ho carries with him,  can connect with the wire and call for  aid. Should ho need to remain in  charge of a fire that is in some portion  of his district remote from roads and  settlements, he can connect one of the  very light wires to the main wire and  trail it out through the wooes for 2 or  !1, or even I miles, and as long as tho  weather is dry so that moisture does  not spoil i,lio conductivity of fhe  ground wire, his portable instrument  attached to the end of this will enable  him to keep in touch Willi headquarters without leaving lhe site of tbe  lire. Of course, all this installation of  Held telephone is a very dilVerent, matter to the building of regular lines  such as those established hy lhe telephone companies for lhe service of the  public, and it niay lie noted also that  the Foresl Branch will install lis.Held  lines only hi ixnlatoil I iinhered dint rieln  in which there is no pro.specl ���������whatever  of public telephone linos being constructed, following out fhe practice al-  leady developed so extensively in the  American Stales fo the south of (,IiIh  Province, where I he lumbermen handle (he problem of I'oreRt lire prevention through fhe agency of their own  voluntary associations.

"You ain't never going to make a  farmer of yourself, Mr. Hartwell.  Your, bead ls too 'tuttjpt newfangled  notions.

Ernest Onrtwel! grinssS patiently as  he listened to Ezekiel _ evening lecture. Born and bred In the city, an  inward craving for a country life had  .it last drawn nUn to tbe pretty village  of Lit tip Hirer.  "Von can't deny that Mrs. Pllnder'a  baked beans ore more delicious since  she learned how to cook them at the  domestic science club.- "Fou said yourself Unit"���������      ���������   -  ��������� -  "Maybe so. maybe so." ivalred Eze  Kiel airily?

"It must be a great satisfaction to  feel tbat one can clip coupons from  bis stock of common sense," remarked  Hart well meekly-as be hoed between  his rows of corn,  Ezekiel scowled at him beneath his  bushy brows. "You're laughing at me,  Mr. Hartwell. 1 can tell Jt by that  kink in your eye. Anybody ever teii  you that you had a funny iflnk fn yonr  eye?"  Hartwell rested oa his hoe and surveyed the farmer solemnly. "No, Mr.  Flinder; no one ever broke the news to  me. I've been told that I had the form  of a bed slat, tbe face of a pirate and  tiossy hair like a doii, but I have always prided myself on my china blue  eyes, and to be told tbat there Is a Sdnk  in one of them Is heartbreaking.'' He  dug despondently at a bunco of wire  grass. ���������'���������'���������:-  Ezekie! spat reflectively and let himself down to tbo ground. "You're a  mighty fresh young man. Mr. Hartwell." he chuckled, **bot IPs a good  thing for you I ain't got a daughter."  "Why?" demanded Hartwell, sor-  prised. -  "Oh. because you'd be dead sot to  marry her. and I wouldn't listen to it a  minute.

Ezekiel wheeled sharply about to  confront a pretty girl, dark haired,  gray eyed, bine gowned? with sun kiss- '  ed cheeks and scarlet lips.. "Well,  Miss Christie, bow in thunder do you  fio2" h������ bellowed, delightedly s������rnieez-  tag her hands. j  "Very well, indeed, Mr. Flinder," sbe  replied, with a provoking glance at  Hartwell, who stood expectantly near.  "I'm glad to see you looking so hale  and hearty."  "What train did you come on? Con-  scrn it all, I'd have met yoa if I'd  known you was coming down today.  Maria said yesterday tbat she'd got a  letter from yoa, wanting to know could  you get board down here another summer for you and your aunt But 1  didn't know you was expected today."  "1 couldn't wait another moment,"  laughed tbe girl. "Aunt Phoebe in  coming tomorrow with all the trunku  and things. I came down in the noon  tra!n������ and the stage brought me to the  house, but Nancy says Mrs. Flinder  has gone to her ethical culture club.  1 came on down here looking for you."  "Well, here I be! Guess w_ might as ,  well go aloug up to the house, Miss  Christine." He led the way, intentionally ignoring the expectant embryo farmer. But Hartwell was equal  to the emergency.  "Introduce me, ntease, Mr. Flinder," i  he said  humbly,  and  Ezeklel  smiled  sourly  and  performed  the  ceremony j  tbat made the sculptor acquainted witb  Christine Davidson.  "Miss Christine, is like a daughter to \  me, Mr. Hartwell," be said meaningly '  as the girl released her band from ���������  Hartwell's clasp and turned away. j  "And I am a plain farmer boy, and  I'm good," murmured Hartwell obstinately.  ��������� "You're a sculptor and you'll starve  to death some day," was Mr. Flinder's  cheerful prognostication as be departed for his own side of tbe rail fence.  The next day he came once more to  the rail fence and watched Hartwell  raking tbe accumulated weeds be had  uprooted the afternoon before. "Any  time you say I'll bring Miss Christine  over to see the sculping, provided it's  all proper. I told Miss Phoebe Davidson about you���������that's Christine's aunt  -and sbe said you might be worth in-  vestlgntiiig." he observed, watching  Rartwell's face.  "The deuce' she did!" ejaculated  Hartwell. his face growing very red.  "See bere, Mr. Flinder; just keep all  these ladies away from my place.  Understand?"    flu looked quite fierce.  "Well.

Mr, Roberts always Invested his mohey wisely; he noticed, too,  that bis clothes were well worn, even  ehining, and that with the exception  of his mania for jewellery he bore  the aspect of a very respectable citizen of London. He knew, too, why  Mr. Roberts hid away the newspaper  he had been reading so he made no  attempt to enter into conversation  ���������with him. But after a decent interval he sent the boy out for the latest  edition of the Evening News, and  propping the paper in front of him he  read the latest accounts of what had  already been termed- 'The Savoy Mystery,' now and then giving vent to a  little exclamation of surpri ��������� and horror.  Aaron Roberts began to fiJ.get in his  seat and glance surreptitiously at the  newspaper. Presently be, too, called  the boy and told hi.ua to fetch one.  Heriot politely handed his Evening  News to the moneylender.  Roberts took it awkwardly, but no  word was spoken. When the latter  had finished his luncheon the detective rose and followed him at a dis-  erer-t distance.  He entered 99, New Bond Street  about five minutes after Mr. Roberts.  Faber met liim in the outer office.  I've come to borrow something, Heriot said.  Teli me what you want, Fab-cr bawled, and I've nc doubt but that we shall  bo able to come to a satisfactory arrangement.  I'd like to see Mr. Roberts myself.  Unwillingly Faber took in hie na���������^  It's  very  important,  Heriot said,  want a good bit.  The moneylender saw bim at once.  but directlv he looked up and recognized his visitor his face changed col-  Yes, she called here "with her brother.  Heriot had a very subtlr* way of  obtaining what he wanted; on occasion he played the part of Jekyll ,and  Hyde; he treated the Jew in a very  different manner to which he had  treated Fred Scribner, and in a few  minutes he had learned that Saintsbury had possessed certain papers  which incriminated Jimmy Francks,  and that those papers had come into  the Jew's  possession.  I told you I didn't give them to Miss  de Fontaigne, Roberts growled in answer to a question from Heriot.  Then you have still got them? You  will probably be called upon to produce them.  Roberts w-l on the vergs of losing his temper; never before in his  life had he been bullied, it had always been his great privilege to exercise   that  pleasant perogative.  Those     papers     helong    to       Mr.  Francks by right; our agreement was   ter Is  strictly  forbidden  that   when   he   married   Ella   Saints  Things Forbidden In War I  It is tot generally realised that the  game of war is hedged round by as  many restrictions ss 2. boxis"*- Y^-*.  test under Queensberry rules. ������ These  regulations, which are under the sanction of all the civilized countries of  the world,-are designed to ensure fair  play for the combatants.

He did not do ������0, and as  Salutsbury owed me money, I made  him give me the papers as a sort of  security. 1 had my own reasons  for wishing to stick to them, and after Miss de Fontaigne had gene, her  brother came back. I'm a softhearted fool, though I daresay you wouldn't j  believe it, so 1���������1 gave them to her j  brother. j  Just for a moment a look of blank;  amazement camo over the detective's1  s face, but it quickly assumed  i mal  aspect.  i     We bave all got our  weak points  Her Mother's Friend  When tbe new minister, a handsome  and unmarried man, made tils first  pastoral visit at the Fosdlck s he took  little Ann.-, up iu his arms and tried  to kiss ber.

Jump in, doctor, ho cried, pulling  up. I've got a horse here that Is a  perfect treat to sit. behind.  The doctor jumped in, and the gentleman drove off.  The horse was a treat. In tho sense  of speed and sl-tlishness, aiul presently stood stock still and shot both  hind legs underneath the trap, splitting It to pieces, and throwing both the  occupants out into tha road.  The doctor jumped to his feet, feeling himself all over to see if lie was  injured. The owner also got upon his  feet.  Look here! exclaimed tho doctor,  what, on earth do you mean by inviting mo to ride be'iind a horse like  that?  Well, vou see, gasped the other,  luckily there are no bones broken: but,  when breaking in a brute like this I  like to bave a doctor witb me!  story  think  I Have got no further questions to put!

It isn't money I want, "Mr.  Roberts, bur. a little quiet chat.  I'm too busy to waste my time in  conversation, the moneylender stormed. You tld my clerk you came hereto borrow a bit.  Heriot smiled sw ,-etly. Yes. but it  wasn't money I wanted to borrow.  You may cave yourself a lot cf trouble f-nd unpleasantness if you listen  to me a moment and give me a  straight answer to one or two straight  questions.  Aaron Roberts glanced at the safe  and then out of the window. 1 know-  nothing about the affair at the Savoy-  Hotel, it' that is what you're after.  You ought to have been a thought-  reader instead of. a moneylender, Mr.  Roberts. Heriot said boldly. The  Honorable Fred Scribner is one of  your elicits, isn't re?  The moneylender's great jaws snapped, an ugly expression crept into his  ���������eyes.      Yes, I'm sorry to say he is.  He's engaged to Miss de Fontaigne.  Never. She wouldn't have him if  he wore rolling in moiAy Instead of  rolling in debts.  "But sbe would havo married Mr.  Francks if ho hadn't altered his mind  at tho last moment somo few months  ngo, eh? You know why ho didn't  marry her. so does Mr. Saintsbury.  Have you got. the reasons?  Again unconsciously tho moneylender glanced at, the safe. The detective looked at it too. A few moro  pointed quest, tons and unwilling answers and  Heriot came lo tho point.  Did you seo Miss de Fontaigne yesterday?  Mr.   Roberts, we shall meet .".gain.  Directly be had gone Aaron Roberts  rang up the exchange ou his teitphoue  and asking to be put through to the  telegraph office, dictated a telegram  to keuben de Fontaigne, requesting  bim to call at Ci*. New Bond Street  without a moment's delay.  But while the message was rushing  over the wires the detective was also  hurrying in a taxi-cab to Abiudgon  Villas.  And he reached Reuben de Fontaigne . some twenty minutes before  Aaron Roberts' telegram.  Skin Cracked and Bled, Causing  Much Pain.

Reuben had been in  the middle of writing a letter to  Francks. but he folded it up and  placed it In his pocket.  Heriot looked at him sympathetically, but there was nothing in hie  voice or manner to suggest that ho  was dealing with a man who differed  either physically or mentally from his  fellows. Ho treated him not aa an  equal, but as a superior, with a certain amount of deference.  Reuben was on his gnnrrt; he had  an instinctive dislike and distrust of  all strangers which waa irradioable.  Reason warned him that he should bo  particularly careful with Inspector  Heriot.  And Heriot realised that probably  Reuben de Fontaigne would prove to  be the most diincult problem ho had  yet tackled. Super-Hcnsitive, cunning when driven into a corner, deceitful and perhaps dangerous; a typo  j rarely mot with, a typo of man in  whom virtues aud vices nre distorted,  ruder certain circumstances ho know  that Reuben de Fontalgno might turn  into a great and torrlblo criminal, juat  as under other circumstances ho  might prove to bo a hero such aa Ib  rarely met with in the present day.  Ho apologised for troubling hlni,  and then came quickly to tlie point.  And at once he received n Biirprlso.

No Excitement  A young man was compelled by his  father to turn farmer against his will.  Not liking the profession, he went  anl l.nnged himself, leaving this written statement: Farming is a most  senseless pursuit;" a mere laboring in  a circle. ?You sow that you may reap  and then you reap that you may sow.  Nothing ever comes of it.  Minard's Liniment ussd by Physician*-"  The fathor of a bright young son  went to a wise friend for advice as to  what profession the youth should be  fitted for.    The sage was brusque.  Let the boy choose for himself, he  said.  But, protested the father, he's too  young.  Well, responded the wise man, put  him in a room .\lone with a book on  theology, an apple, a knife and some  small change, and see what he makes  of it. If he chooses the book make a  minister of him, ir he take3 the knife  make him a surgeon; if the apple, he  will make a farmer, and if he chooses  the money a banker.  Much relieved, the father went  away, but returned In a few days  complainir.g the plan hadn't worked  at all-,  Why not? demanded the wise man.  What did ho do?  When I went in, said the father, he  was Bitting on the book, with the  knife ln one hand and the money in  his pocket, and eating the apple.  Ah! said the sage, that's easy.

Crossing Atlantic In 36 Hours  Mr. Grahame-White, the well-known  aviator, has announced hia intention of  flying across the Atlan'tlc in thirty  hours, and he hopes to undertake tha  trip in June or July. He is building  a machine with this object, but little  has leaked out so far in regard to Its  plan of construction. It is known,  however, that it will carry four e:>  gines, arranged In independent pairs,  each rated at 250 horse-power.  His object ls to produce an aeroplane with power to make a tremendous life without reducing its speed.  It is understood that his machine will  'ne a biplane, owing to the superior  weight-carrying properties of this particular type of machine.  Roughly speaking, the distance between the coast of England and that  of America Is some 3.000 miles, so that  in order to accomplish his journey  within the stated time, he will have to  travel continuously at the rate of 100  miles an hour.

What Germany Is Doing io Get Supremacy of Air  Dreadnoughts of the air wil! play as  great a part in deciding the issue- of  the next war as the Dreadonughts of  the sea; and it is because they wish  to impress this fact on the mind of  tli6 man. in the street that certain, people have been, so loud in their denufa-  ciatioji of the War Offivo for paying  $90,000 for an airship three years ago,  and afterwards making?no practical  use of it. We may have & fleet of  .aeroplanes, they say, but we must also  compete with Prance and Germany lit  the matter of airships, and judging  from- th_ extraordinary efforts which  Germany Is making at the present  time to perfect her fleet of airships, it  Is obvious that she considers they are  as essential as war vessels for the  maintenance of her power.  In the matter of-alrshipa, Germany  at the present time easily stands flrst  in the world. They possess twenty-  five dirigibles of the rigid type, and  by the end of the present year will  have thirty-two. And it is significant that the Zeppelin Company, which  now turns out an airship every three  weeks hope- io be in a position at the  end of six months to double this output.  Germany pins her .faith to the rigid  type of airship, and considers it "by  far the best for war purposes. So  convinced are they of thia that when  we tried to buy a rigid airship somo  time ago the German Government vetoed the order; although they allowed  ua to purchase a Parsival, a non-rigid  vessel.  Some facts regarding the capabilities of German air Dreadnoughts given by the expert already mentioned  provide an illustration of their dead-  llness in time of war. Before an airship is accepted by the German Government it must have done a trial trip  of a continuous 1,500 miles at a speed  of fifty miles an hour. As.a matter of  fact, eighteen vessels noW in commission have a range of 2,000 miles.  They can carry six tons of explosives,  and at the present time are practising  with apparatus which can direct  bombs of dynamite weighing half a  ton apiece.' Which means to say that  a couple of these air Dreadnoughts  could utterly destroy a town or army,  unless they were first destroyed. la  addition to explosives" however, each  dirigible carries heavy quick-firing  guns.  Hangars capable of holding the  largest air vessels are being constructed. The late types of hangars are  built on turn-tables, so that there is  no difficulty in docking, or taking the  airship out on s. strong wind. The  latest tvpe at present being constructed in Heligoland Is such a turn-table  hangar which sinks Into a pit, so that  Its heavily-armored roof, is flush with  the ground. In addition all over  Germany there are erected iron towers  as nnclioraiares.  These 'towers are built with revolving ton;-, so that the airships can ride  in softly, no matter how the wind  changes. Tbe towers are built close  to hydrogen stations.  It is interestine to note "that one  Riich tower is built on the Austrian  frontier, two on t.hp Russian, three on  the French and eleht on the North Sea  coast���������which Is tho Britl-jh frontier, X  Nelson's dictum still holds good.

A story of Mr. Pierpoint Morgan  which is -illustrative of -thg scale ?of  his domestic affairs; reaches me, says  a writer In the Manchester Guardian?  My correspondent was in a London optician's shop when another customer  entered, and, striding up to the counter, brusquely inquired: Can you make  me another pair like that? presenting  spectacles of the goggles type in tortoise shell rims and gold frames.  Yes, said the optician, I can. Send  them up to my place as soon as they  are ready. You know who I am,  were the laconic instructions ; given  aa the customer strode out of the  shop ae quickly as he had entered.  The optician explained that that was  Pierpoint Morgan. The spectacles  were delivered, and my friend making  inquiries in the matter, heard the end  of the r.ifair from the optician. Pier-  pont Morgan returned to the shop,  and speaking mere effusively than on  the first Occasion, said: Those spectacles were very good���������very satisfactory indeed. ��������� I shall want some more  of  them.  BORROWING MONEY ON LAND  by  Excellent   System   Worked   Out  Farmers of Switzerland  Swiss farmers find it comparatively easy to borrow monev cf the mortgage banks which exis"t in many of the  cantons. The chief advantage secur-.  :ed by the farmer in placing a mortgage with the cantonal or state mortgage banks is that he escapes the necessity of repaying the principal bf tits?  mortgage in a^ingle payment, arid he  is practically relieved from the danger  of foreclosure according to- Farm and  Home.  The Interest rate charged by the  cantonal mortgage banks is about the  same as that collected by other banks.  For Instance, a farmer wishes to raise  a loan of ������10,000 on his property. He  secures the money from the cantonal  bank at 4 1-2 per cent. He could  probably do as well for himself if he  went to private sources, but here is  where the cantonal banks help him  out. If he went to a private bank to  borrow money at 4 1-2 por ceut for a  Btated number of years, he would be  required to pay that bank his interest  each year and the full amoun. at the  end of yie term.  With the cantonal bank he is required to pay each year, in addition to  his 4 1-2 per cent., 1 per cent, as amortization. After the first payment he  owe3 the bank $10,000 less 1 per cent.  Naturally the second year he must pay  interest, not on the $10,000, but on  $9,000. However, his actual payment  is .still 5 1-2 per cent, of the $10,000.  Each vear, however, a larger portion of  this 5 1-2 per cent, goes to liquidate  the lean. In this way the farmer ultimately pays back Mie entire loan  without having been burdoned with  one big payment In any year afc he ordinarily would have been. Only In  very rare cases are the- loans made  by these mortgage banks on farm properties foreclosed.  !t Secured SiT-hcn  At the village store the evening  gossip had turned upon snakes.

Disofdti- _f the Blood are Cared  bv Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  mm  If people would realize the importance of keeping the blood rich and  pure there would, be less sickness.  The blood is the medium through  which the nourishment gained from  the food reaches the different parts  cf tho body. If the blood is Impure the nourishment that reaches  nerves, bone and muscle is tainted  with poison and disease follows. The  blood ls*also the medium by which  the body fights off disease. If the  blood is thin and watery this power  of resistance to disease is weakened.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale  People build up the blood. They increase the ability of the body to resist disease T-h.y strengthen the  nerves, increase the appetite and cure  every disease caused by thin and impure blood, and that embraces such  diseases as anaemia, Indigestio::, neuralgia, nerve exhaustion, rhoumatism.  and many others. Every claim made  for this medicine ts amply proved by  the grateful testimony of those who  have been cured. Here is one instance. Mr. Ja3. Sauger, Peterboro,  Ont., -says:   "I began to be troubled  Birch and iiecch for Flooring  Birch-and beech, on account of  their cheapness, are becoming more  and mere popular as the supply of  oak and maple . decreases. Thi3  statement, taken from a bulletin soon  t. bo issued by the Forestry Branch,  Department if the Interior, Ottawa,  on the Wood-Using Industries of Ontario, is based on reports received  from over twelve hundred firms, and  Is therefore worth:, of consideration.  The average wholesale price per  thousand feet, board measure, given  in the above bulletin for maple and  oak flooring is twerty two dollars and  eighty two cents and fifty five dollars  and seventy eight cents, respectively. The z*erage price for birch and  beech flooring, on the othe- hand, is  nineteen dollars and seventy one  C-its and twenty one collars and seventy four cents respectively, which represents quite a saving, especially  when compared with oal".  But these woods have other quail-  ties to recommend them besides  cheapness. Twenty two per cent of  the flooring manufactured in Ontario  is made from the wood of the black  a^.d the yellow birch, the more common white or payer birch not usually  growing to a sufficient size for this  purpose. Birch is a hard, strong,  fine-grained, reddish-brown wood,  which take- a hi.gh polish and, therefor, is very suitable for flooring. It  can be stained to imitatt more expensive woods, such a3 mahogany, cherry or walnut, and, being easily worked, it is also extensively used for furniture and interior decoration.  Beech !s one of Ontario's cheapest  hardwo.ids, the ordinary grades jf  lumber costing only thirteen dollars  and sixty one cents pe thousand feet?  board measure. It frequently constitutes one tenth to one third of the  cheaper grades of birch flooring, but  its qualites justify its separate use,  for it is strong, fine-grained and so  hard that it become-, quite slippery in  time. It is also used for furniture  to some-extent.  Of the birch and beech used in Ontario, ninety per cent of the foiimer  arid ninety eight per cent of the latter are home grown.
