The southerly drift was found  to vary from practically nothing to as  high   as   thirty-two  miles   a   dny.   <���������  ; [pending upon wind and tide in its fluctuations.      At the junction of the La-  j brador   Current,   accelerated   by   the  flow from the GuVf of St.  Lawrence,  and the northward moving gulf stream  from tbe gulf of Mexico the direction  of  the   drift   of  icebergs   is   charged  \ from    southerly to north and    east.  The   Gulf   stream   is   more   powerful  than the Labrador current and dominates   it,   taking  along   in   its   course  whatever ice may be brought into it  Minard's   Liniment   Ouj-c_   Diphtheria  The Rainy Day  "Victor Grayson, the English parliamentarian, who was expelled from  the House of Commons for obstruction, said In New York the other day:  You. multi-millionaires are the glibbest lot of hypocrites that history has  ever seen.

Sir Rick-  man Goodlee, president of the Royal  College of Surgcona, said recently:  I have lately been reading old letters dating back to the early part of  the eighteen century, and I have been  struck with the way in which mere  handwriting is   handed    down   from  father to son, and mother to daughter.  It ls impossible to trace quite clearly my great-grandfather's  writing In  that of my cousin's and father's and  my own.     If mere handwriting is thus  transmitted, together wltb the tone of  the voice and the shape of the nose,  the question arises whether any ono  need be ashamed of his defects, sorry  for his misdeeds, proud of his success,  cr satisfied with the cjnsciousness of  virtue.      We may feel the long arms  of our 'ape-like  ancestors  stretching  out of the past and molding our characters.      We may read all that ha3  aver been written about free will from  the   time  of  Aristotle,  and we  may  aug the notion that our actions have  >een predestined from the nebulous  state of our planet.  But It makes no difference to ua.  We are still doggedly convinced that  by taking thought we can add one  cubit to our stature, or at any rate  prevent lt being one cubit less.

The  tracks of the liners hardly touch the  Labrador current, but do lie along the  path of the Gulf stream. The area  of the ice danger is at tbe same time  restricted, because bergs coming Into  the gulf stream do not last long In  the warm water of that current.  Capt. Johnston is of the opinion  that the quantity of ica brought down  in the spring is in direct proportion to  the severity of the winter preceding.  The severity of the winters In the  north Atlantic States, he says, depends upon the iirevalence of strong  north winds having their origin on the  Labrador coast.

Rainy Weather Made Popular  One of the large London insurance  companies has lately Issued a noypl  Insurance policy against bad weather.  It ls primarily for tho benefit of travelers who make trips in the spring  and summer through England, and  who complain it their trips are spoiled  by variations of weather.  These policies are called, naturally  enough, rain policies. The more you  pay the greater, of course, is your  compensation If lt rains. You cau  pay $5 a week, and If lt happens to  rain for more than two days out of  seven you get $40 for each such week.

Every effort was made  to protect the infant industry, and tn  1463 It was enacted that no cloth  but of Wales or Ireland should be Imported into England. In the seventeenth century, during the reign of  Charles II, a law was passed that all  persons should be buried In woolen  cloths. In 1700 an act was passed  by parliament, prohibiting the Importation into England of Indian muslins,  chintzes, and cottons, which- were  threatening to supplant woolen cloths  in popularity. It was not until the  last century that cotton replaced wool  as the staplo commodity of English  manufacturo.

A  country that will produce from  its soil the vast quantity of  food products which Canada  will yield this year, is a pretty  safe one to bank on. It is  interesting to note that notwithstanding the activity ol  of certain panic-mongers a  sew months ago, the people oi  Canada never for one moment  lost   faith in   this      country.  One and all refused to be  pessimistic. Now things look  as if the financial world was  beginning to realize that ii  would be a very serious mistake to hamper the legitimate  demands for money Canadian  development. Of course, we  shall continue to have ovvlliVe  deliverances about real estate.  We do.not believe real estate  buying has done any real  harm, although it may have  hampered some people financially. One thing we cannot  understand, and that is, why it  Conditions  on   Our   Planet   While  Process Developed.

Mountain ranges bad  not arisen from tine swamps, and tbe  atmosphere wns thick witb fog. lu this  state  of   affairs   there   sprouted   aud  Nourished the plants which were later  to furnish the world with Its coal supply.  These plants grew as big as onr largest trees, taking deep root in tbe morass   aud    flourishing   like   tbe   lush  grasses In moist meadow iand and developed into the strange shapes now  found in tropic vegetation.   The forest  looked,  tbe  scientists assure  as,  like  dense growths of  weeds,  rushes and  enormous ferns.    Some of tbem grew  in the shape of cacti, having spines all  over  them.    This  kind of vegetation  was very rieb in carbon, which' it derived   from   tbe   warm,   moist  atmosphere.   Then the mi���������ions of years rolled by. tbe forests of giant weeds were  buried by deposits of earthy material  nnd   tfoe  chemical   change took place  wbicb slowly chuG'-'ed LuOuj itito cosla  This process ceased wltb the carboniferous age, so that when the present  supply of coal Ls dug out of tbe ground  there will be no more.���������Exchange.

I  didn't listen.   -  Alter a few more questions he waa  allowed to go, and Inspector Heriot  entered the witness-box and described how he had been called up by  telephone from Scotland Yard late In  the afternoon. He gave his evidence  very slowly and concisely, reading the  statements Francks and Mr. Velnhardt had made. He then produced  Francks* pocket-handkerchief which  bad been stai_ed ln several places and  -which stains Doctor Maitland deposed  were caused by tincture of aconite.  There had also been a small stain on  the cuff cf the. shirt Francks had been  wearing at the same time.  The silence which held the lookers  in the stuffy court-house seemed to  deepen as che sense of tragedy deepened. The suggestions that many  had lightly made, or listened to, that  Francks had killed his wife commenced suddenly tc take tangible shape, almost to threaten certainty.  Thi.; calm,  fresh compiexloned detective was deftly connecting link by  In his own way, and Saintsbury was  allowed to continue. He confessed  that he had practically forced Francks  to break off his engagement with IriB  de Fontaigne and marry his daughter.  He acknowledged that be was ln financial difficulties, and admitted that  while she was on their honeymoon  he had written to Mb daughter for  money. She had refused to send him  any, and he gave her reasons ��������� that  she and her husband had quarrelled  on their wedding night and were husband and wife in name only.  When he had finished, there was a  sensation in court The coroner asked  if Saintsbury could produce the letter. He replied that it had been  destroyed. But as he was about to  leave the witness box th������ heavy figure of a man rose trom the crowd  near the door.  Mr. Saintsbury sold the letter to  me.  Aaron Robert's voice rang clearly  through the silent room. There was  a startled murmur, a rustling of dress  and shuffling of feet, which was tn-  sitan'tly subdued.  The cries of 'Order' bad scarcely  died away when another interruption occurred. A messenger bad  entered tbe court and placed a letter  in Inspector Heriot's hands. He  glanced at It, hvj-ld a whispered conversation with th������ coroner, and then  formally asked for aa adjournment.  The excitement was painful in its  intensity now. Everyone present,  witnesses, officials, jurymen, held their  breath. The coroner did not seem  anxious to accede to Heriot's request.  Then rhe foreman rose and announced  that the Jury was willing to sit late  into the day if the adjournment could  be avoided.  From the evidence we have already  heard��������� he commenced unsteadily,  when the coroner stopped him.

Its towering cliffs, for Instance, are  largely artificial. Some years ago  there was grave fear that the Island,  which was steadily growing smaller  would soon be eaten away entirely  by the waves from the ������o*a������iw������st.  But five million dollars has been  spent on raising a massive cliff of  granite on this exposed ut'le.  On those parts of the coast where  the red, porus rock of the genuine  ollfts has been too badly honeycombed by the seas, hundreds of thousands  of tons of cement have been used to  strengthen the face.  Heligoland has long been an important naval centre? It is defended by  the most powerful guns, and is said to  be prepared for a selge lasting three  years. It is, indeed, the North Sea  storehouse of the German fieei.

A ray  of sunlight Is thrown through a lens  o_ a glass vessel containing lampblack colored silk or worsted, or any  like, substance. A disk having silts  or openings eut in it is made to revolve swiftly in this beam of light, so  as to cut it up, thus causing alternate  flashes of light and shadow. When  one places his ear to the glass vessel  he hears strange sounds so long as  the flashing beam falls upon the vessel.  A still more extraordinary effect is  produced when the beam of Bunllght  is made to pass through a prism, so as  to produce what is called the solar  spectrum. This disk is turned and  the colored light of the rainbow Is  made to break through it. Now, it  the ear be placed to tho vessel containing the silk or other material, as  the colored llghts-of tlie spectrum fall  upon it. sounds will be given by the  different parts of the spectrum, and  there will be silence ln other parts.  For example, If the vessel contains  red worste-i and the green light flashes upon It. loud sounds will be given  out. Only feeblo sounds will be  heard when the red and the blue parts  of the rainbow fall upon the vessel.  Other colors produce no sounds at  all.  Green silk gives out sound best In  a red light. Every kind of material  gives more or less sound ln different  colors and no sound at all In others.  ft__ft$  -*VrwV  C_W  JJWPL. ���������'(CANADIAN, met-I e from our   nev  V> factory at Windsor, Ontario.'-,?

The true ear cf the owl Is a most  remarkable organ.  The facial disk of feathers that  gives the owl Its characteristic appearance serves as a kind of sounding  board or ear-trumpet to concentrate  tho slightest sounds and to transmit  them to the orifice of the true ear,  concealed In the small feathers behind the eye. Even in the barn owl  which possesses the least complicated  arrangement* of this kind, the orifice  of the ear is covered by a remarkable  flap of the skin, while in tha other  spocies there are striking differences  in the size and shape of this orifice  and Its covering Sap on the two sides  of the head.  The exact way ln which owls utilize  this elaborately, specialized apparatus  has still to be discovered?  Unwed at 101  Miss Mary Thearin Is apparently  the oldest unmarried woman in all  tho world. Sho lives In Denver,  Colo., and not long ago celebrated her  101st birthday.  Really she is a most wonderful woman, according to the reports of her  friends and relations. She claims  never to have been sick a day in her  life, and furthermore, having lived in  slngie bliss ail her li������2, vigorously Insists that she never regretted it.  Evidently she Is of the opinion  that unmarried women are just as happy as married ones���������that, in fact the  unattached women are likely to get  a great deal mors out of life, for they  are not as apt to spend their days  bound down to domestic duties and  labors.  Miss Thearin ls still perfectly  healthy and expects to continue so to  enjoy a number of more years in the  samo cheerful state.

There are few who  are not at sometime subject to biliousness and fa ini liar with its attendant  evils. Yet none need suffer with  these pills at hand.  Married Men Live Longest  Married men live longer than bachelors or.widowers becr.use they havo  loving wiives around to say: One nip's  enough, John and to see that hubby  gets bis dose of quinine when ho  comes home with wet feet.  Tha Journal of the American Med_  cal Association reaches this conclusion In Its current Issue, published recently. The journal also comments  on the fact that married, men, deprived of their wives by death or tho  divorce court, pine away and die at a  speedier rate than bachelors.  Undoubtedly the lower death rata  among married men is parti/ due to  the fact that married men live much  more regular lives and consequently  avoid many of the dangers of irregular living, says the Journal. This  view would seem to be corroborated,  by statistics as to the mortality among  married men who have - lost their  wives either by death or divorce? Tlie  mortality rate among-widowers and  the divorced is almost double that of  married men of the-same age.  talking  his hand as if to ensure silence  Mr. Coroner*���������  Before he could proceed further he  was seized in a grip ot Iron, forced  back into his seat and held down  there.

She  had waited for the end, for tbe verdict  of the coroner's jury hoping, believing,  that it would be an open one, or else  one of misadventure. But as the  proceedings drew to a close, and Inspector Heriot summoned his facts  and his witnesses one by one, and  mercilessly linked up the terrible  chain of evidence which threatened to  convict Francks of the murder of  his wife, her strength and courage began to fall.  The honor and the life of the man  she loved beyond all others ln the  world was ln danger. Up to that  very last moment sho bad refused to  admit to her heart that any body of  men could seriously believe him guilty  of such a terrible crime as murder.  The idea was outrageous.  When Heriot entered the witness-  box, cho had no tear of him. rather  _l.e regarded him as a friend who  would clear nip the dreadful and unaccountable mystery.  The truth camo suddenly ��������� ln a  flash. Tbo detective believed Jimmy  Francks guilty of killing his wife.

"TUiii'c'H a Ileacon,"        '  He Smiled and Got the Limit  A young man from Pittsburgh,  charged with driving his motor about  London while Intoxicated, and exceeding the speed limit, smiled when he  was arraigned before the judge. Presumably he expected a $10 fine. That  i .agistrate had to break the news to  h._i that the charge was no laughing  matter, and that conviction meant imprisonment.

How to Save Your Tires  A tire manufacturing company gives  this advice about the care of motor  car tires:  The idea seems universal among motor car owners that the tire cost of  their equipment far exceeds all other  costs that they tave to deal with. It  IS   uuc   wai  biu-3  uic cunt, uuui ucucSo-  arily be greater than any other cost  of running connected with the machine  but is far from necessary that the  cost shall bear such a ratio to the  other expenses as Is generally the case  tcJay.   -  This is especially true where pneumatic tires are used. It tires were  loaded only to the maximum loads  for which they were designed, if they  were kept inflated always to the pressure called for by the tire manufacturer, If they were not run in ruts, if  they were properly and quickly repaired when damaged, and if they were  run on wheels which did not wobble,  their cost of upkeep would be cut Ji  half.

Minard's  Liniment  Cures  Cows  Garget   In  Minard's Liniment Cures Distemper  One of the reasons why English is  expected to become a world language  is that English people refuse to learn  another. A correspondent sends the  following example: At Muscat, at the  entrance to :he Persian Gulf, there  lived for many years an Englishman,  supposed to be the only, or almost  the only Britsh resident on the 1,500  miles of Arabian coastline from Aden  to Kowett. It would seem that he  could hardly have escaped knowing  Arabic. Yet he confessed that he  ���������could not speak a dozen words ot  that language.

Builds Houses for Birds  A picturesque method of fighting an  insect may be seen front the train  windows at Mar3hfisld, a. wide, outlying cranberry bog, dotted-oveir; with  whit*? bird houses on stakes'. 'The  owner ofthe bog, Capt. B. G. Cahoon  invented this method of fighting certain pests destructive to cranberry  vines- and berries some thirty years  ago, and is still enthusiastic over the  success of it.  Capt. Cahoon has installed 100 new  bird boxes or. a seventeen acre bog,  thus iniriting and surely housing a  large colony of swallows, whose all  day occupation will be to swoop down  upon obnoxious moths from their cottage watch towers and stuff the same  down the throats ot voracious youngsters still in the nest. It is a neat  little scheme by whlol. everybody  seems to be pleased and benefited except the moth. Incidentally other  bogs also are benefited, although but  few similar bird houses are to be  found yet ia other parts of ths great  Cape cranberry    area.  In the earlier days of the experiment the bird boxes were placed three  on a stake, rather near together. On  the last log laid out of seventeen  acres, 100 boxes were placed forty feet  apart, oa tall stakes, following the  line of the ditch crossings, having the  appearance of great regularity when  seen from the right point of view, but  merely scattered about when looked  at from across " the bog.

Capt. Cahoon based his original experiment on the simple observation  that c .vallows liked moths and private  lodgings. To tempt them to live on  the very battlefield was tho idea. It  is expected of them that they keep  down the numbers of three separate  cranberry caterpillar pests by capturing the moth3 In such seasons as they  appear, during the extended time of  swallow housekeeping.  The Httlo houses are roughly sawed  out at a nearby mill and nailed together, and painted and mounted on  their stakes as a sort of winter knitting work by the owners of tho bog.  The* expense ls small In proportion to  the value of the crop saved and being,  carefully taker, up, and In winter the  plaint lasts Indefinitely.  Western   Recognition  of    the    Gre. t  Work the C.P.R.  is Doing for  Canada  The conflrmatloa by Sir Thomas  Shaughnessy of the intention of the  C.P.R. to expend $100,000,000 In the  extension of -its lines and perfection of  its system tu the west, comes at the  present time as' a piece of very welcome news .. indeed and furnishes  moreover";* ample'opportunity for the  people of Canada to review the situation and. examine Into the relations  '���������which subsist between the Dominion  of Canada and thia great corporation.  When the evidences ot a world wide  trade depression which is now coming  on. are to bs seen on all sides and  tho money situation is becoming alt  the while tighter, the announcement  of a gigantic expenditure of this kind,  and at this, particular tlm Y appears  like a veritable rift in the clouds before the storm has'had timo to break.  We have all heard the C.P.R. damned for one thing and another and  many of us may have done a bit of It  ourselves at times when we didn't  happen to think that things were coming sufficiently our way; but nevertheless where ls there another corporation that has so thoroughly identified  itself with the Interests of "a country  as this mammoth railway and steamboat company has done? Neither is  this the first Instance when British  Columbians in various districts and at  various times have seen infant industries nursed along by the company in  a way that was truly pat-,*nal, and it  does not detract from the situation in the slightest where it may be  seen that In doing so they were mere-  building up profitable business for  themselves in the years to follow I It  is now twenty years since they placed  a steamer on Okanagan Lake that was  far beyond the capacity reiuired at  that lime, and many a lean trip was  made beforo there was business  enough to justify the expenditure.  Any settler on tho. shore ot Okanagcn  Lake had only to moor a log or two  at the shore to serve as a wharf and  display a white flag when, he wanted*  iuq   uuait   lO  Can,   auu x*S  auu  ilia   iiiLjO  bit of produce or belongings was taken aboard. The mining industry in  the Boundary was fostered along the  same way* :.nd when It was a matter  of life or death to ailue owners to  determine whether the low. grade ores  of the Boundary could be made to  yield a profit, the C.P.R. did their  part to help out the situation by giving  a rate of 35 cents per ton Tor the  transportation of ore to the smelters  at Greenwood, Grand Forks and  Boundary Falls long before there was  any other road to share this business  with them.  In fact, Sir John A. Macdonald, far-  seeing statesman as he was, builded  even better than he knew when he  tied up with the men who risked their  fortunes In the gigantic scheme of giving Canada a railway from ocean to  ocean; and any aid which he and his  parliament were able to "give at critical periods to help it through, was  bread sown on the.waters, which is  since coming back In countless ways  and this latest manifestation in the  expenditure bf $100,000 In the extension and improvement of their system in the west - at this particular  tint? j.s but another magi-iflcent instance of t'N,o iollcy ��������� they have seen,  lit to pursue and the national sentl-  nfent which has Inspired lt. To do  the rlfeht thing at the right time is  a happy faculty that Is unfortunately  not possessed by all, and neither are  all in a position to do it, but it is  fortunate for all that those who are  In a position to do bo, have the will  to do so.���������Hedley, B.C.

Caring for Caged Birds  Vegetable food of some kiad is a  necessity for the caged bird. A lettuce leaf, water c-resi-, a small piece  of apple, a grape or a small thin piece  of raw potato if there is nothing else  should be given every day. The staple food should be canary seed mixed  with a small percentage of rape and  golden millet, but occasionally, in cold  weather add a little hem seed.  Should tho bird's nails grow too  long, take him In your hand, loosely,  but firmly, hold his feet In a cup of  warm, soapy water for several minutes to soften the nail, then cut tha  extreme end with a pair of sharp nail  scissors.  A bird should be accustomed to having a. bath every morning. The best  best plan to encourage this ia to remove the bottom of the cage, put a  small -dish of water On a sheet of paper, and set the top of the cage over  it. Many birds have to be coaxed  into taking a bath, and if your bird  has not been accustomed to it, it will  help matters to remove the seed and  water dishes. After, he has bathed  hang the cage In a?Warm pleaceso-  that there may be no fear ot the bird  becoming chilled.  Minard's Liniment Co., Limited.

Whiskey Insurrection  Tho first rebellion against tho fed-  oral government ln the United States  was tho whiskey insurrection of western Pennsylvania, which had lis beginning 122 years ago, when a meeting was held In Brownsville, Pa., to  protest against tho imposition ot an  excise tax oa spirits distilled from  grolln. This measure had boen devised by Alexandor Hamilton to bring  revenuo into tho treasury of tlio Infant republic. It provided fo.* a tax  of from ft to 25 conts a gallon, according to the strengyn of the liquor. The  farmers of westorn Pennsylvania woro  hard hit by tho tax. Owing to the  high .cost of transportation, thoy  could mako a living out of grain  growing only by converting tho product of their fields Into liquor. Feeling ran high after tho Brownsvlllo  meeting, and ono of tho tax collectors  waa tarred and feathorod. Prosldont  Washington Issued a proclamation ln  whloh ho oarnostly oxhorted nnd nd-  mlnlshod the robolllous farmers, but  thoy paid no hood to It. Flvo hundred  strong, they attacked tho house of  Gon. Novlllo, western Pennsylvania  revenue colloctor and In tho battle tho  loader of tho Insurrection, John Hoi-  croft, or Tom tho Tinker, was killed.  Tho iiumiToctloii waa finally put down  by todoral troops under Llghthoroo  Hurry Lc-o.  *���������*������������������"���������*.'  .-��������� '  Tho Only Kind  Tbat Will  Angelina Is a giont friend of niino.

The 6f_i United Siaioa coin  with a perforated center waa a gold  dollar Issued iu 1849. which had a  square hole In the middle of the  plancbet It was tbe forerunner of the  gold dollar Issued by the United States  snlst la 1S4S. The coin was eagrav^d4  not struck from dies.  The nest United States coin with a  perforated center was issued from the  Philadelphia mint in 1S50 and was of  tbe denomination of 1 cent. It was  about the size of the bronze ceut now  in use. At that time the large, ohl  fashioned copper cent was in general  circulation, and the perforated coin re  eeived the name of "ring ceut'' The  designer reasoned that by means ol  the perforation tbe cent could be distinguished by touch from tbe dime.  Another perforated cent issued the  same year showed two rings in the  field with the words, "Cent, One-tenth  Silver." The reverse showed an olive  wreath around the perforation and the  words, ������������������United States of America."  The mint authorities undertook to  design a coin that would answer all  requirements, aud the pieces were  struck with both pierced ana perfect  centers in silver, copper, nickel and  composition metal, six varieties in all.  without counting the various metals,  but none of the designs was favored  by the government aul_ori_es, and  consequently they were never put in  general circulation.  The only gold half dollar ever produced at the United States mint was  struck in 1852. It had a perforation  in the center, and the obverse showed  a wavy circle around the perforation,  with the inscription, "United States of  America," around the border. The re  verse was blank. The coin was ex.  actly half the weight of the dollar.  Regardless of the generally accepted  Idea tbe gold fifty cent pieces with  which the public is familiar were not  an issue of the United States, hut were  manufactured by California jewelers.  There has not been any attempt to introduce the perforated coin in the  United States since 1884.
