Chas,  Nef-, held in connection with tlie murder of Ernest Twigg  last week. There was subdued excitement and keen interest  as the proceedings of opening Court progressed.  Magistrate Lowenburg was on the bench and C. R.  Hamilton, K. C, of Nelson, represented the Crown?  The story of the crime was substantially that as told in  the Review last week, the only additional fact of consequence  being the conversation between Neff and Twigg which was  overheard by Fire Warden Reymel on the night of the murder, in which Neff threatened Twigg and the latter answered  "If you want to fight put up your dukes, I am a good Johnny  Bull," but received no direct answer from the accused, who,  having procured a sack from somewhere nearby, went away,  saying, as he crossed the track, "I'll get you yet."

Our attention has been drawn to the  fact tbat the ferry over the river is out  of commission and has been for more  than a weokcausing inconvenience and  actual loss to soine of theranchers who  live acre's   the river and   havo to do-  I pend on the ferry to got across.   Tho  government is at the exponso of keeping a  man to run tbe   ferry and  his  time now is a  complpte loss.   Why  should not tho same government for  the little oxtra oxpensc keep an extra  cable on band   m caso of  emergency.  This loolts hko n caso of penny-wise,  pound foolish policy,  and  ought to bn  avoided in the future. Thero is now no  assurance that the same inconvenience  will not occur again at any timo should  the cable break.  ;���������*������..

Tell me  what you want of me���������or go before I  throw you out!  The Jew did not reply at once. He  stood with his back to Francks, looking out of the window, looking down  on the red and white lights of the  Embankment and the countless shadowy forms drifting to and fro along  tha pavement, the great army of failure;?, or fools, thieves and felons���������  the army which he had predicted the  Honorable Fred Scribner would shortly join.  Just listen to me for a few moments  the Jew continued.  Francks. heard him attentively, but i  when Roberts had finished he shook  his head. 1*11 not take the risk, he  said quietly. Rather than that Iii  take your life. I shall have to go  out branded as a murderer anyway,  hated and despised of al! men. And  Iris��������� his voice faltered.  Aaron Roberts rose and turned his  face to the East. I swear by the  God of Abraham, Isaac���������  You'll go clown to Abingdon Villas  now aric see Miss de Fontaigne first,  r.nd  Reuben  afterwards..  The Jew nodded, he could hardly  trust himself to speak. As he reached the door he turned and looked to  wards Fr;  standing  nicks  with  ras.  The  back  latter    was  to  him,   his  and putt'ng on his hai and coat called  a taxtcah  In the meanwhile, Francks had no  sooner rang off, than sitting down at  the writing-table he commenced to  j scribble a~_omewbat lengthy letter to  the man who had Just left him, Aaron  Roberts. Then he wrote one to Iris,  even longer, and tails gave him much  thought and no little trouble to compose. He had just finished both letters, and was handing them to a messenger boy, when Mr. Laughton was  announced.  This is very good of you, Francks  said gripping the lawyer's hand tightly. Of course, it's business on which  I wished to see you; nevertheless I  warn you I shall make a great demand  on your friendship. I shall probably  want you to do certain things for me  for which monetary payment would be  wholly Inadequate. He hesitated a  moment and took a deep breath. You  know me, and know my family pretty  well, so while you are quite in the  dark. I am going to ask you whether  you feel incline- to do It.  Mr. Laughton smiled. He was  clean shaved, with jet black hair and  eyes almost as dark, a firm*mouth,  thin lipped; and a rather prominent  nose.  I am certainly very much In the  dark, but I don't think there is anything you can ask me, either as a  professional man or as a friend, which  I would refuse to do for you. As for  payment, why���������  Francks, interrupted  hhn.       I   can  never repay you.      I daresay my request  will   seem  pretty  simple;       I  haven't  much time to  waste,   so I'll  come to the point.      1 want you to  make a fresh will, signed and sealed,  within   the   next   twenty-four   hours.  With the exception of a few legacies  which will be the same as those in the  will   at   present   existing,   I   want  to  leave my  whole fortune to  Mrs.   de  Fontaigne ln  trust  for  her  daughter  j Iris and her son Reuben.

If so, you're asking the impossible?  You must believe, Francks cried,  turning on him quickly, for it's the  truth. You must make Miss de Fontaigne realise that it's the truth, too.  That's ono of the things yon have to  do. Ho held out both his hands Impulsively. Oh, you won't fail me;  there's no one else I can rely on,  strange as it may seem. Look at me  I'm perfectly calm and know what I  am saying. 1 am not mad now���������undoubtedly I was mad when I put that  poison into��������� my "wife's glass.  (To   be   Continued),  Mouse  face hidden.  You'll net take your own life? Roberts whispered.  Not yet.  But as soon as he was alone. Jimmy Francks took the revolver from  liis pocket and fingered It thoughtfully-  Water In the Farmer's  One of the features of life on tue  farm most dreaded by visitors from  the city is the traditional absence of  a convenient and ample water supply  and of the privilege of the real bath.  There was a time when it was  thought impossible to supply these  conveniences. But as the comforts  of civilir-aiion have spread and sani*  tary engineers havo given their attention to the subject, lt has been  found entirely practicable, and not  excessively expensive, to hiatal In the  farm, houru-s almost Identically tho  same appliances as are now found i.i  the homes of the city.  The most popular type of country  j water supply' is the air pressure sys-  liem.       It is  quite simple,  consisting  specially   constructed   steel   air-  tank,   the  size  most  commonly  j used being about thirty inches in dia-  CHAPTER XXIV  Aaron Robert-, had not been long  gone before Jimmy Francks with a  elgh as of regret put away the revolver, then going to the telephone rang  up Mr. Ernest Laughton at b.is private address.  Now Ernest Laughton was Francks'  family solicitor. He was still a young  man and had succeeded to his father's  business, a sound old-fashioned one.  He had to some extent revolutionized  lt, for though he was steady and careful, hs was a keen business man and  believed in moving with the times.  If Laughton't* father had been rung  up by a client late in the evening  while he was eating dinner amid the  circle of his family, he would have  been overcome with indignation, and  probably have refused to speak at all  to the unfortunate client.  But young Mr. Laughton had made  It his business never to be surprised,  and never to be indignant. Had  he been rung up in the middle of the  night, he would have cheerfully given  his advice through the medium of the  telephone���������and doubled his fee. He  had already written a letter of regret  und condolence to Jimmy Francks on  the sudden and mysterious death of  his wife, and he had been a little surprised at not hearing from him, although he knew that very naturally  some of Francks' business had been  "Transferred to Mr. Saintsbury's hands.  Can 1 come up to the Savoy and  see you tonight? he said Into the receiver or the telephone, ropeatlng  Francks' question. He hesitated a  moment and glanced nt his watch. I  have nearly finished dinner. I think  I can be with you in forty minutes,  perhaps less, will that do?  As quickly as ever you can, Francks  answered. It's iniporlant.

From one side of the  submarine project two Bteel stays.  From the ends of these Is stretched  taut a piano wire. Touching the  wire is the roughened rinn-of a wheel  which, when it revolves, sets up vibrations in the wire. The wheel Is  controlled by a motor Inside the hull  of the submarine and the motor, in  turn, is controlled by a Morse Key.  When the key is pressed the motor  begins to revolve, the exterior wheel  sculping the wire precisely as a bow  agitates a violin string. The hull of  the submarine acts as a sounding  board. The key Is used precisely as  an ordinary Morse key and. dots and  dashes are hummed on the wire as  the key is released. About eight  words per minute Is the best speed so  far attained.  The receiving, apparatus, is the ordinary telephone receiver. Tho end  .iri/io,. v,*ater mav b-> connected hv Insulated wires io a fort, shore station  or another vessel.  Tue experiments at Hampton Roads  showed   that   the   vibrations   may  he  heard   clearly   nt   a   distance  of   flvo  miles.      Naval otlicers believe that the  , device can  be perfected, so that the  i range of the mechanism may be great-  ! ly extended.  | Christian Berger. au Australian, is  1'the inventor of the submarine violin.  I He attempted to get the Australian  1 Government to make tests of it. but  j failed. Coming to the United States  ! he succeeded in convincing the Navy  Department officials of the practicability of the scheme.  The signal is a simple device and  does not get out of order easily. It  is available at all depths. It is expected to add not only to the ease of  communication with submarines operating in harbors or hi close proximity  to war vessels In time of war, but  will aid materially ' to the safety of  the men who go down in submarines  the most dangerous' type of war vessel  yet devised.���������-Scientific American.  . ..* i "a ,"m .i i j  _=5-BT*������   "F-rf***  REMINGTON:  H������Pi_/������_IlNt������  !.

And the crocodile toid  the elephant to stoop down and then  seized his nose between those terrible  jaws and pulled. The elephant's child  and the bi-colored-python-rock-snake  pulled too, and so hard that when the  crocodile let go, his bulgy nose had  been stretched into a trunk.  So much for the . romancist; the  nian of science tell quite another  story.   .  Elephants, according to Professor  Woodward's lecture at the itoyal Institution, London, recently, svere originally little creatures which, for some  reason or other, were -ticceeded by  creatures in which the legs were  growing longer and longer, while the  neck remained the same length, or In  fact, got shorter. They could not  reach the ground without lengthening  the jaw; the giowth continued, and  they were going rapidly toward a  mechanically impossible position.  Eventually they had to increase the  length cf their face enormously.  The elephants, Professor Woodyard  added, only saved their career by  shortening up the mandible, and survived solely because the long face took  on a new function and became the mechanism by which they were able to  feed.  There you have the choice of two  explanations���������the pulled-out nose, or  the face that grew down. Perhaps  Mr. Kipling will oblige us with the  authorities for his explanation���������which  Tickling a Shark  Tickling a shark ln order to make  the flsh amenable to capture is a singular practice among the natives of  the l-'land of Tahiti. A writer in the  New York Sun, who watched the hazardous snort while seated ln a canoe  manned by two natives thus describes  it:  Peering Into the clear water, where  you can see to a depth of four or five  fathoms, you catch a, glimpse far down  among tho sea ferns and coral cups  of the long, lithe tali of a shark, and  of a huge pectoral fin that sways continually with a sldewise motion, and  sends up little ripples to the surface.  The native diver picks up a coil  of cocoanut fibre with a slipnose already tied in it, seizes a knife in his  teeth, and quietly slips into the water. It Is done with wonderful skill.  The native keeps close ,to the reef and  lets himself down through the water  by means of the sea growths till he  Is right over the waving tail. Slowly  a black hand stretches out, and starting behind the pectoral fin, begins to  run his hand along the bod*, of the  shark and the fin sAvays more rapidly.  Again the hand moves forward, and  as it strokes the fish, the other hand  leaves the slipknot hanging loosely  near the spread.of the tail. Then the  native comes quietly to the surface,  and the spectator breathes freely  again. The sail is set,*the steersman  takes his place o,n the outrigger, and  the diver In the bow, with a yell cf  Hula, pulls hard on the rope.  On the occasion that I speak of, the  shark splashed about in wild frenzy  for a moment or two, and then settled  down to a tour of the lagoon. Twice  he circled about, and the canoe plbw-  \ eu aiong, with the water bubbling and  Nowadays  Have you packed tho 'sanitary drinking cups?  Yes.  Put In. the sanitary  towels?  .

The Review in its issue of August 8 made mention of  an attack on the Canadian Bank of Commerce by the Moose  jaw times and quoted dispatches from the Mayor of Moose-  jaw and others to show how unwarranted was the attack, and  how futile. Now the same paper makes a most scurrilous  attack on the town of Fernie, iu the following terms:  "Fernie is a small one-horse town iu British Columbia  noted for its dirt also for the   fact that it was burnt out, and  iucxi.  o*-������iijC  ui  xlS     luiiciuiiau���������     o_v._*     uv/   a.la.V'w     uuuc   |'i "Ci.l._y    \������������-������l  out of the relief fund.  Kveiywhere else iu Canada that we kuow of an hotel  man who tried to run the city or town iu which he lived  would be politely told to get out. Fernie has such respect  for the licquor traffic, however, that it has a hotel man as its  Mayor.  The way in which Fernie inns its civic affairs is open to  question. There have also been some complaints about its  hospital management. Its morals are notorious, as is ouly  natural in a town run by the   liquor interests.  Fernie is, however out with a big nxe on the subdivisions  of Toronto. _���������ooseiav.'*, and other "-"-aces. It attacks a number of real estate men as sharks. Some of the firms its Press  and Board of Trade are attacking are ver}' respectable people.  Others might bear investigation, more particularly those  which are selling British Colnmbia fruit lands, which happen  to be one of the most bare-faced swindles which have ever  been palmed off on the Eastern public, aud have the subdivision wild catting beaten a mile.  The town of Fernie is a wide open town, like so many  other towns in the jurisdiction of that famous Tory, Attorney-  General Bowser. We fancy that the Fernie Press would be  better employed cleaniug up there own town and reforming  the morals of their none to chaste community before exciting  themselves about subdivisions in Moosejaw, One thing it is  safe to predict, and that is that any subdivision we know of  on the Moosejaw map will have more peopie in it in t'ie next  five years than there wiii be in the whole of the smokey little  bole in the mountains which is notorious from one end of  Canada to another for being an open den of vice run by the  liquor interests."  There are a great many things about this most unwarranted attack that challenge attention.  ist the writer must be very ignorant of Fernie and of  British Columbia or he would know that Fernie is not a  smoky little hole but au incorporated city about a third the  size of Moosejaw. Nor is Fernie a one horse town but one  of the livest small cities in the biggest province in the Dominion of Canada. It is estimated that Fernie has been paying iu the neighborhood of #50,000 a month to out of town  real estate meu and Moose jaws fake subdivisions have received a very fair share of that amount.  2nd. Fernie has uot been out with an axe for Toronto  and The Times must have lost its reason altogether when il  ranks Moosejaw with Toronto and other places. Fernie has  used Toronto as a model of what a city ought to be before it  offers it subdivision stuff to the general public. Fernie has  had no axe out for any legitimate real estate proposition, but  Fernie has had the courage of her convictions and has made  one of the greatest expositions of the most colossal frauds in  the history of real estate in Canada aud it is significant that  the little three and a fraction horse town of Moosejaw should  figure so prominently in the denouemeut.  3rd. If British Columbia fruit lands have been wildcatted  it hns been done by men nn the prairies not by .British Columbians the fact is (probably unknown to our ignorant writer in Moosejaw) that we of the mountains have so much real  good fruit laud to sell that we would be cheating oursclvi s  if wc tried to unload any of the stuff that Hues up in the cat-  f-l -' .'���������*'' " 1 jm mf  Lastly, we of the mountains have attained an altitude,  mentally, morally and "really''   so far above the inhabitants  a manner up-to-date.

Mills In the Dea Moines  Register and Leader. It was told to  the white men by the famous Sao  chief. Black Hawk, who hiinself saw  the incident.  : It all began with an unfortunate  quarrel between an Iowa and a Mus-  quakit, in which the latter k'lled the  former, and then ln a moment of  frenzy scalped his victim. The two  tribes were at peace, and this act; allowable only in time of war, was in  Indian eyes an intolerable breach of  good ���������faith.  The Musquakles offerre_ all sorts of  reparation but the lowas would accept  nothing but the person of tha offender  to be tortured and put to death In  propitiation of the outraged spirit of  the dead man. To this tha Musqu-  qakles agreed on condition that the  culprit be given a month to fortify  himself for his terrible ordeal. But  just as the month waB about to expire  he fell ill with a raging fever. In  that condition he could not be carried  across the prairie but a failure to produce him at the appointed place would  arouse the suspicions and perhaps the  hostility of th& lowas.  A council was called to debate the  matter, before which appeared Cono,  a brother of the sick man. There are  no squaw-men in our family, ha declared'.      I will go in his place.  The others tried to dissuade him,  and described to hiin the tortures he  would have to undergo; but he insisted upon making the sacrifice. Accordingly, an escort was selected to  accompany him, at the head of which  Black Hawk, then a young but widely  respected chief, waa placed.  I never saw a more pathetic scene  said Black Hawk, than the parting of  !.!  finii'c:_. if _������������������������*._, I���������efafl o   H^-/>/^*���������,.  ������?���������������������������������-X>���������������.a   87���������m-si.*  ""?"���������*- .7?������.-���������"   &.^*? .rmmmmmymmm  r������    4>4VV,Uiy    *J**I Q\*l **0 *9    *   **' /tUWC  Tlw^a^hmi^.tijiki'pa' fbr itself ia a tyer������ few years  by 'the saving it effedts.

He Is too good a  man to torture and kill. Release him  and let ..Im return to his own people.  Although the entire village a few  hours before had been eager for revenge, there was a murmur of approval, as the old man gathered his blanket about his hand and took his seat.  Without anyone's making a single objection Cono was removed from the  circle and given food and drink. A  few hours later he was led from the  camp, allowed to mouut his own pony  and depart in peace.

A very  great improvement was effected, says  the Cigar and Tobacco World, when  it was discovered that a much harder  and better article, and one capable  of taking a higher polish, could be  produced by cutting from the solid  block of vulcanite. The so-called  block ls a slab of about four feet by  two feet and 1*2 inch or 3-4 inch in  thickness. These slabs are flrst cut  by fine circular saw3 into narrow  strips of the required size, sub-divided as to length, turned :n the lathe,  trimmed by files, bored and finally  polished in readiness to be affixed to  the pipes. A little heat carefully  applied is all that ia necessary for  bending vulcanite.  Ferry Across Panama Cans!

Hats and Architecture  It has been pointed cut that tfis������  form of the hat bears a certain relation to buildings of a primitive _at>������  ure���������hut-i. A distinguished .architeci  has invited attention to the curioun  resemblance that has existed and tha*  is still to be found In many'Countries  between hea*dgear and habitations or  other buildings. It may be that th������  same taste, or ths lack of it; has giv^  Minard's  en rise to tho similarity of style, cr  in the beginning the designer of th*  hat may have taken the hut as a model.

To obtain sucker plants  the planter should dig up tbe little  ���������ncker sprouts wblcb stand in the outer  ���������na'rl of the hills or rows. Car������ should  tie in ken to get a good portion of the  running underground root But the  vvst possible results will usually be  secured by digging up several largo,  thrifty plants In tho fall. Cut the roots  In three inch pieces and stratify tbem  ever winter In the epring sow these  fn -shallow drills In well prepared gar-  _������'ti soil. This method requires a year,  for tbe tip plants the tips of the  growing canes may be allowed to droop  ���������nd touch tbe soil In the latlor part  of July.

Planting,  Two methods ot planting are ' In  ���������rogue���������the hill and the continuous row.  We believe tbo check bill system is  better.  Cultivation.  Cultivation should be begun as soon  ���������m the plants ure set It should bo  frhnlluiv, but kept up nil bu minor long.  ���������J'lio soil should never bo allowed to  bnlto or crust. The best tool is tho  borso live shovel or fourteen tooth cultivator.  , The patch should novor bo seeded  tfnw.u, nor nhould grass bo allowed to  creep In. If ono whiles to ripen tlio  rnnes In late summer millet, oats or  buck wheat may bo sowed thickly to  t'ltiu up lliu iiioIhIiii- tn the soil. If It  Im dcHlred to enrich the ground for tho  -mining year, (toy beans or Ounadlon  ���������pfiiH may bo used.  .Mulching Is sometimes used ns n sub*.  ���������tltuto Tor cultJvntlon. but Its success  tn doubtful.  Pruning and Thinning.  Not moro than two -hoot* should ho  ���������llowi-d to grow from each plant tho  IIrut year.

Large quantities of barnyard  manure should be worked Into tbe BUG  before and after setting the plants.  Plants. -  Currants can be grown from seed,  but the method Is not used except by;  tbe plant breeder. Plants are usually)  procured from nurserymen.  The plants used are grown frow cut-j  tings of the ripened wood or from lay*  erings. The cuttings are made from  the current season's wood In August  or September after the leaves have?  fallen. These are? made seven ��������� or  eight inches long aud are planted la.  well prepared garden soil, with only  an Inch above ground, four Inches  apart in rows three fest apart By;  winter root grcv.'tb w!!J bave started,  and in the spring tbey will start ofi!  and grow strongly. Tbey should ba  kept well cultivated in tbe growing  eeason to conserve tbe moisture. They  are sometimes planted when one year  old, but tbe best results will be obtained by allowing them to grow foe  two seasons before setting. i.  The   branches   may   be   rooted   by*  bondiog ibsiu dc-v?n and covering .vlt���������  soil, leaving the tips exposed.    Aftec  one season tbey should be cut loose,  lifted,and grown in nursery rows foe  ono season before being planted out  '"l-he'*' are also layered successfully &y  cutting*o_ tbe clump, encouraging aa  many young shoots as possible and  then mounding soil ln and about them  v to a height of eight or ten inches.  Planting.  In Jarge plantations the .best plan la  the check system. Use a single plant  to establish a bill and plant 6 by 6 feet  for best results. Wbere continuous  rows are used the plants should stand  Sv_or 4 by 6 feet  Cultivation and Mulching.  The currant must not be cultivated  deeply, for it js a shallow rooted plant  Tbo neccs'sary moisture must bs main*  talncd by continual surface cuitlvatlaa  or by mulching.  Asbcs, sawdust, straw aim manure  are used for mulching. Hardwood  sawdust, If not worked into the soil. Is  probably the best Apply to a depth  of several inches. Manure ls good and  tends to keep a supply of plant food  slway&at band.- The best method o_  mulching is to confine tbe application  to the bills and witbln tbe row. where  the continuous row Is used. The space  between ths rows is cultivated.  -Pruning and Thinning.  Tbe plants probably produce the best  fruit and the larger portion of It on  the two and three year old wood.  Id prnctica! field culture four to  eight main stems ore allowed to develop, and n system of renewing by c-ue=  tlng out the wood over three years old  Is followed. Tbe greater part of tbe  fruit Is borne near the base of the  shoots, for this renson lt Is advantageous to nip back tbe growing shoots  ln the summer season when tbey bavo  reached about eighteen Incbes.  Harvesting and Marketing.  Tbe currants, tf to be sold, should  never be stripped when one Is picking.  The atoms of tbo bunches should be  cleanly   severed   from   the   branches.  The iiiiii Mnaiu io unik_ beiier jeiiy  when picked Just ns the currants nra  ripening and whllo the fruit- on tbe  tips of the bunches are green.  Wlntor protection.  Currants will usually bo sufficiently  protected   ln   tbe   northwest   lt   the  branches nro simply gat bored up and  tied In a bundle.  Peats and Diseases.  Tho greatest pests or tbo currant are  tho currant worm, currant borer, leaf  spot nnd mildew.   Directions for con*  trolling them mny bo obtained  from  any agricultural experiment station.  Gooseberries.  Tho gooseberry is closely related to  tho currant   It Is largely used green  for sauce, for pics nnd for canning.  For Jam*7 and preserves It Is usually  profarrefl ripe.  The cultivated sorts nre derlvod  from -uropeiui sources, the native  wild speeloM nnd hybrids of tbeno cpo*  vies.

Mrs. Dodge, who was noted for her  inquisitiveness, looked toward him in  great surprise? After a moment's  pause she asked:  "Were you ever blind, Mr. Evans?"  "No, madam," was tue reply.  "Did you marry a widow?" the woman inquired.  "No, indeed," he said.  There was silence again while the inquisitive woman tried to solve tbe  problem to her satisfaction. Failing  to do so, she asked:  "Didu't 1 understand you to say, Mr.  Evans, that you had a wife and four  children in Chicago and had���������never  seen one of them?"  "Yes; that was what 1 said."

Spending Ir merely puffing out yonr  personality. It is like the trailing  feathers to a peacock���������like the long  train to a fashionable woman. Why  does the barefoot negro boy acquire  four yellow dogs? Tbey add to his  personality. Why do we all���������shopgirls  and plumbers, fashionable literary  backs und gentlemanly financial pirates��������� spend every cent we get, honestly and dishonestly, wisely and oth-  erwisely? Wa stretch out as far'ns.we  can, and vanity, my friend, is the only  jjjiHoon that never bursts. . Wby does  the stag grow horns until it can hardly make its way through the forest?  And why did Absalom wear bis locks  so long that tbey caught in an oak  tree and held him until Joab and his  men came np? Vanity! Vanity I In  some tribes they worship the fat man,  who bas put much food ander his glistening skin. Among other tribes tbey  worship ybu'for tbe servants you era-  ploy without using, for the food you  purchase without eating.

"Happy? I should say it was," said  the cousin.

In his book "The Balkan War" Mr.  Philip Gibbs, the war correspondent,  says that tbe official regulations for  war correspondents who were sent out  to the Balkans were appallingly severe.  Mr. Gibbs found that he was forbidden to describe tbe~~dlsposltlon of  troops, to give the names of generals,  the names and numbers of the wounded, the success or failure of Bulgarian  troops, tbe state of tbe soldiers' health,  the conditions of the climate, and so  on. When ttie.censor bad told him all  this Mr. Clbbs i-slted htm politely:  "Will you tell me, sir, if there is anything about which we shall be allowed  to write?"
