Andy Miller is into the poultry raising game this spring on a scale that  should enable him to spend the winter  in the Baeamas if spring chicken  prices keep up and he has good luck  with his cluckers. So far he has set  25 hens, five of whom have brought  out nice hatches already.  The tennis season opened at Wynndel on the 6th. It is surprising how  far north civilization has travelled.  A few warm days this, week is bringing "vegetation along fast. On the  Andy Strahl ranch may be seen an  apricot tree owt in full blossom this  week.  Victor Carr has a small gang of  men on some government road wt rk  ���������cutting down the grade on the  road that leads to the meadow, north  of the Pease ranch.  Alice Siding claims the distinction  of furnishing the first of the Valley's  1916 weddings, which was solemnized  on Tuesday afternoon at the Methodist  parsonage, Creston, when Miss Jennie  Buxton, who arrived from Sheffield,  "England, last week,,became the bride  of Mr. William Hem*y Reed, of the  firm of Reed & Mather���������these two  partners now having life partners  from the same family. They will reside on the groom's ranch here, and  The Review extends them the congratulations of the groom's wide circle  of friends, with best wishes for a long,  healthy and happy life.  Cross  I"? Ji -  rail's  Piled Up Nicely  EriGk&@MS  R. B. Staples of the Fruit Growers'  Union shipped another car of potatoes  this week. It was billed ta Winnipeg,  Man. ,    / '  "-Alex: Dupe-fry"" has' two- nieTn^-ahia  team at work clearing a ten-acre field  on the east end of his large farm.  Henry Hamilton has a fine lot of  tobacco plants started in his greenhouse, and expects to grow enough to  do him a year, with a little to treat  his friends occasionally. He has ex  perimented successfully with tobacco  for several years.  Mrs. Streetor, principal of the Erickson school, left oh Sunday for Trail,  where she will spend the Easter vacation with her brother.  Teddy Haskins shipped several tons  of seed potatoes to R. E. Beattie of  Cranbrook this week.  The past week-end proved rather a  strenuous one for the Creston Red  Cross workers, what with the tea,  candy and flower-sale andTviolin raffle  on Saturday,.and"the dance on Monday night, and all the necessary be-  fore-and-after labor attached to events  of this nature. However, their efforts  were generously ^rewarded, the total  financial income from all these sources  running close to $110 gross.  The raffle for the violin given for  that pumose by Alex.- Duperry,  brought in $23.25, and was won by  ticket number 33, held by Miss Mary  Bennett, the wee daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. C. G. Bennett. The instrument  has done good service in patriotic  work having been .originally donated  by James Heath to! the Patriotic Fund  committee, and at a previous raffle  early in the year stood the fund $18 at  similar sort of drawing.   '   '. . -  The ten-cent tea and sale of homemade candy in.Speers' Hail, which  claimed Misses. Melva and Georgie  Cartwright as hostesses, ably assisted  by their Easter guest, Miss Snyder of  Moyie, along with a sale of daffodils  given by Mrs. W. P. Stark, ascounted  for an intake of $25r���������$9 from the tea,  and $14 from the .flower and candy  sale.  The dance in Mercantile Hall on  Easter Monday evening brought together a- gathering, which for numbers, at any rate, has not been equalled  for many months. Sirdar, Wynndel,  Alice Siding, Erickson and Canyon  j City were all largely represented, arid  our problem, as the Okanagan United  Growers is by far- the largest body of  shippers in this part of the province,  as well as the oldest and consequently  the most experienced.  Mrs. A. and Miss R. Cooper were  Ci'eston callers on Tuesday. G. Oleson was a visitor at the metropolis on  Monday.  W. B. Mnir returned here on Tuesday, haying spent the winter in  Washington.  School re-opens on Monday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Duncan left for  Spokane on Saturday last, returning  on Wednesday.  Mrs. Egan and family of Craubrook  arrived here per automobile on Wednesday, and are yisiting with Mr. and  Mrs. Bathie.  Mesdames Johnson, Bathie and May  attended the Alice Siding-Wynndel  "Ladies' Aid to Soldiers at the front  sock-making party at Mrs. Mason's on  Wednesday.  The Co-Operative Fruit Growers'  Association power sprayer arrived the  end of last week and has been in commission this week spraying strawberries. J. Bathie is the motorman in  charge of the outfit, which has a  capacity of 100 gallons.  Kaslo GcirtreMioii  Fixed for May 24  J&SB&& Siding  A. L. Dougherty', principal of our  public school, is spending the week  with frUmdtt in Nelson. School reopens on Monday,  Mrs. W, A. McMurtrie left on Moutlay for a few days' stay with friends  at Nelson.  Mr. Fraser has about half an acre of  early cabbage that he planted out almost t\vo weeks ago, and lt Feems to  haye weathered the frost of the past  few nights' in good shape.  R. J. Long was a visitor at K-islo on  Thursday and Friday, returning on  Saturday.  Miss Georgie Cartwright, teachca at  Moyie, is home forthe Eastervacation,  accompanied by her friend, Miss  Snyder, of tho same school.  Billy Hall, in a letter to his parents  here tho early part of the week, re-  portu being through some of the fighting around Vordum, coming out of it,  so far, without a scratch.  Joe Droxler left to-day for Cranbrook to visit his son who is laid up  in the hospital in that city.  Mrs. Staples, sr., left yesterday for  Winnipeg, on a visit to hor son, Frank,  who now makes headquarters at tho  Manitoba capital.

Words of appreciation are also* due  the dance committee, Mesdames Cherrington, Bennett and Mallandaine.  Also the band and their orchestra for  the high class music for which no  charge was made. The gross proceeds  of-the dance were inthe neighborhood  off $05.  In order to finally clear up all the  details in connection with thesi functions a full .attendance of all the committee members is asked at the meeting to be held at-the Rod Cross depot  on Tuesday afternoon next, when the  treasurer's statement covering these  events will be available and disposal  of the funds decided upon.  It is gratifying to note that the  serious side of tne Auxiliary's efforts  has not boon lost sight of. On ITues-  day the following completed work was  turned in at the depot: Mrs. Nicholls,  socks; Mrs. H. Hamilton, 4 .pairs sox;  Mrs, Andrews. 3 pairs sox; Mrs. E,  Cartwright and Mrs. Lindley, pair  pyjamas each, and Mrs. Hall, Canyon  City, 2 pairs gox and old linen.  ���������������������������$������&&*  M.

Hans Haag"jhas. secured a job; ?with  thei D^chaia^s}m;gging puiht.v  The . convention to select a Conservative candidate for the Kaslo constituency is announced for Wednesday. May 24th, in the city of Kaslo.  The holiday date has been chosen, we  presume, because a day of athletic  and aquatic sports will beheld in that  town on that .day, which will help to  pleasantly pass the time when convention proceedings are over, to say  nothing of the cheap rates that obtain  with the C.P,R. on these holiday  occasions.    x  There is little to report in the situation.    Down   Kaslo   way  the  notion  will not down that F.  E.  Archer will  be in the running for the convention  honors,   notwithstanding  some mild  protests of his to the contrary.    As so  James Anderson it is more than likely  he will not allow his name to go to the  ballot, so at present there would seem  to be only three aspirants for the legislative mantle Mr. Mackay is about to  discard.  Should Mr. Anderson remain ont  of the running just at present it looks  as if the delegates wiii haye to make a  final choice bet weed A. T, Garland and  R. J. Long, both of whom seem to be  equal favorites. All told some forty-  five or fifty delegates will be entitled  to vote on this occasion, of which  number the Creston Valley will supply eighteen or twenty, all of which,  of course, it is expected will be/marked  for the Valley choice, R'..".'.3.''->*Long. ������������������'  Thus, on a 50-delegate convention R.

The convention should see few proxies from Creston. Arrangements  have been made with Capt. Gore, of  the C.P.R. lake steamship lines, to  give those going from here direct connection at Proctor so as to reach Kaslo on the evening of the 23rd, and on  the return tiip the same elono connection is guaranteed to enable the delegates to be baek here at noon on the  25th.  The Liberals were a bit uneasy over  the week-end due to a, report that,  John Keen, their candidate, was again  laid up with bronchitis. However,  on enquiry as to condition he wired  that he was lit as a fiddle and con-  serving his energies in view of the approaching fight.  As yet no date has been seriously  hinted at for the election but it is  hardly likely to come at least till the  end of Juno or early July. The legislature is expected to close before the  middle of May, after which Premier  Bowser expects to spend a month at  least making a tour of tho province,  and then polling day may be announced, or it may stand over till September, though it Ib not expected to be delayed longer than the latter month.

He had hoped  through this plot to vindicate his authority, so sadly flaunted by Garson and  Mary Turner. Instead of this much-  to-be-desired result from his scheming  the outcome had been nothing less  than disastrous.  Some one had murdered Griggs, tiie  stool pigeon. The murder eould not go  unpunished. The slayer's identity must  be determined. To the discovery of  tliis identity, the inspector was at the  present moment, devoting himself by  adroit questioning of Dacey and Chicago Red, who had been arrested in  one of their accustomed haunts.  "Come across now!" he admonished.  IIis voice rolled forth like that of a  bull of Bashan. lie was on his feet,  facing the two thieves. His hand was  thrust forward menacingly, and his  eyes were savage.  "1 don't know nothin'!" Chicago  Red's voice was between a snarl and  a whine. Ain't L been telling you  that for ovor an hour?"  Burke gave Dacey, who chanced to  be the nearer of the two, a shove that  sent the fellow staggering halfway  across the room under its impetus.  "Dacey, how long have you been  out?"  ���������'A week?"  "Want,   to   go     baek     for     another  et retch?"  ���������God, no!"  "Who shot Griggs?"

Has   Sufficient   Stored   in   Siberia   to'  Last  Two   Years  The Petrograd correspondent of the  London Times says that. Alexander N.  N'aumoff, the new minister of agriculture, made his first appearance in the  dtima with an important speech on the  Russian food prices. He referred to  the lessening of agriculture since the  beginning of the war and later to the  decrease in the herds of cattle, which  he regarded ns the gravest feature of  the food situation, which he hopes to  remedy in part by forcing the substitution of mutton, pork and fish.  C. Naumoff estimated that the rise  in the price of necessities has been  57 per cent, in Russia, as compared to  70 per cent, in Germany. Emphasizing  the need Qt" good transportation facilities to help the. food situation, the new  minister said that there is stored at  Akmolinsk, Siberia, stocks of cereals  sufficient to supply European Russia  for two years. He recommended the  construction of a 200-mile railway  from Kokshetavaska to Petropavlosk  to link this region with the trunk lines  of the Siberian railway.  By the employment of prisoners of  war, refugees and soldiers. C. Naumoff  said, over a million hands will be  available shortly in Russia for agricultural purposes.  British Have Most Powerful Explosive  Lyddite is probably the most,  powerful explosive knowrn to raair-  lt is largely composed of-one of th������  derivatives of coal tar, namely, picric, acid. To convert and develop  the explosive properties of this new  discovery to the* purposes of war *was  only a matter of time and experiment for the expert chemists. They  did not labor in vain/ for they  found that by melting the picric acid  crystals until they turned into a fluid  of the consistency of cream, and then,  combining this fluid with-gun cotton.  melted in alcohol, they got an explosive more terrifying and tremendous in its destructive powers than.  anything else known before or since..  . _   _ -   ���������*  The Grain Grow*ers' Guide says thai  Western.

"Xo, 1 didn't, but Griggs���������"  "Grigg  is  dead,  Burke.    You're up  against it.    You can't prove that Garson or Chicago Red or Dacey ever entered that house."  "Well, then, I'll charge young Gilder  with murder and call the Turner woman as a witness."  "You can't question her on the witness stand. The law* doesn't allow you  to make a wife testify against her husband. No, Burke, your only chance of  getting the murderer of Griggs is by  a confession."  "Then I'll charge them both with  the   murder,"   the   inspector   growled  vindictively.     "And,   by    .   they'll  both go to trial unless somebody comes  through. If it's my last act on earth,  I'm going to get the man vvho shot  Eddie Griggs."  Burke, after the lawyer had left him  watched the door expectantly for the  coming of Aggie Lynch, whom he had  ordered brought before him. But  when at last Dan appeared and stood  aside to permit her passing into the  office, the inspector gasped at the unexpectedness of the vision. The next,  instant the inspector forgot, his surprise in a sincere, almost ardent admiration.  The girl was rather short, but of a  slender elegance o" form that was ravishing. Her costume had about it an  indubitable air. a finality of perfection in its kind. On another it might  have appeared perhaps the merest Iri.  lie garish. But lhat fault was made  into a virtue by the correcting inno-  ence of the girl's face. It wns t, childish face, childish in the exquisite  smoothness of tho soft, pink Bkin,  childish in the wondering siare of the  blue eyes, now so widely opened in dismay, childish in the wistful drooping  of the rosebud mouth.

"Wail, a minute!"  "You wait!" she cried violently.  "You Just wait, I tell you, until my  papu, hears of tills!"  "Who in your pupa?"  'I shan't, toll you," came the petulant retort from the girl.

Miscou Harbor, Gloucester Co., N.B.  ��������� (Special).���������"I think Dodd's Kidney  Pills are worth their weight in gold."  This is the statement of Mrs. James  Brown, well known and highly respected here.  "I think it would be ungrateful on  my part if I did not tell, what a blessing Dodd's Kidney Pills have been to  me," Mrs. Brown continued.' 'I was  in bed three weeks with headache and  sore back. Then 1 began to use  Dodd's Kidney Pills aud I found them  the  best remedy I  have  ever  used."  Mrs. Brown is jnst^nie of the many  women in New Brunswick ' who are  telling oC pains relieved and health  restored" by the great. .Canadian kidney'remedy. Dodd's Kidney Pills are  suffering women's best friend, because  they act directly on the kidneys. They  tone up the kidneys and put them In  condition to do their full work of  straining all the impurities out of  tho blood. Nine-tenths of women's  troubles come from disc-used or disordered kidneys. There is abundant  evidence on every hand that Dodd's  Kidney Pills cure all Kidney troubles.

The Boys' and Girls' Clubs  One of the most valuable and interesting organization and educational  movements started and supervised by  the U.S. department of agriculture, is  the boys' and girls' clubs throughout  the agricultural sections of this country. In the southern states 110,000,00-0  boys and girls were���������enr6lled during  1S15. Of the 60,000 boys,-many were  interested in soil improvement and in  pig and poultry rais.ing. The 50,000  girls were enrolled ih the canning  clubs. In the northern and western  states thero were 150,000 boys and  girls enrolled in various clubs. The  leading projects -were the growing of  corn, potatoes, garden and canning  work. Aside from the educational  value of this work the social and economic co operation resulting from these  clubs is .beyond all valuation.  j A Household Medicine.���������They that  1 are acquainted with the sterling pro-  j perties of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil in  j the treatment of many ailments Would  not be without it in "the house.

Despising the Germanized Belgian  papers whicli seek to divide their  ranks, the patriots print and circulate secretly a patriotic paper, the  contents of which made German of-  iieials rave in impotent anger and  send German spies feverishly . into  cafes, shops, offices, and the homes  of the suspect.  There are Belgians who fear the  Germans, but many more fear the  vengeance of the patriots, who recently showed their .will and energy  in tracking down the. betrayer of  Nurse Cavell and striking him dead  at his own door.  In the towns and villages of Belgium the following proclamation is  prominently posted:  "Whoever within the territory governed by the governor-general is  found guilty of suspected incendiai*-  3sm, causing an inundation, attacks  on or resistance to the representatives of German civilian or military  authorities, .will be punished by-  death, or, if extenuating circumstances are proved, by ten or twenty  years' penal servitude. Whoever  spreads false rumors in regard to  the German army or of so-called  victories by the allies, or stirs up a  rebellion, or instigates soldiers to act  contrary to their military duties, will  be punished by five years* imprisonment.  But the patriots laugh at these  threats and wait patiently for the  day of vengeance.  Everywhere in Belgium Germans  fire buying or commandeering goods  and stock, which they send to Germany. While the food sent by America just keeps the Belgians .from  starving, the Germans . buy up at  tiieir own prices food produced by  the Belgians themselves. Especially  are they keen on acquiring horses.  One Belgian farmer was ordered  to sell a really fine horse for $100.  JLoath to part with the valuable animal, the Belgian tried subterfuge,  protesting that the . horse was unsuitable for military purposes, as it  Buffered   from   defective   eyesight.  '���������In that case we will give you only  $40," said the German buyer, and the  "horse changed hands at that price.  A patriotic Belgian dentist had a  similarly disconcerting experience.  A German officer afflicted with toothache came to him for treatment, and  the sight of the suffering Hun appealed to the patriotic instincts of  tho dentist, who pleaded that he had  no time for a consultation.  Shortly afterwards he received an  official message ordering him to be  consulting room at seven  Promptly on the hour the  of toothache and two other  prepared. The patient took  the dental- chair, and his comrades,  drawing their revolvers, threatened  the unfortunate dentist with instant  death if he inflicted -unnecessary  pain!  As the use of all firearms by Belgians is forbidden throughout the  country, German officers have confiscated sporting guns, formed battues, and in some cases offered the  game at fabulous prices . to the real  owners of the preserves.  Fines simply shower on the unlucky Belgians. An unguarded word  tn a cafe, a sharp retort to a soldier,  nn "insulting' glanco at an officer,  nnd the offenders nre promptly arrested and ns promptly fined.  A young Belgian girl sent a letter  1o a friend, making ubo of the phrases  "When these murderers aro fione"  nnd "Anyono who is not ti patriot is  n Boehe!"  Tho letter being Intercepted, sho  was arrested and heavily fined.  "Why do you call ns Bodies?" nsk-  nl iho 'conmiandunt petulantly.  "Why,  bQcnuHo    you  aro   Hoches,"  retorted   the    young   girl   spiritedly,  "You   look  like    Hor-hcn,  you  speulc  lIUo Bodies, aud you uet like Bodies."  'I've a good  mind to send you to  said  the  angry command-  Germany,  ant.  "Where the Bodies come from?"  asked.the girl pleasantly.  She was doubly fined, but, as she  told her friends afterwards. "It was  well worth the money."  Belgium is full of German troops.  In the words of a Dutch visitor, "You  fall over German soldiers as soon as  you reach Esschen (just over the  frontier). They pack the road to  Antwerp, and you can't move for  them in Brussels. They seem strong  enough in numbers, but there is some  anxiety shown over a coming allied  offensive on a big scale in the  spring."  3u   his  o'clock,  victim  officers  Dry Soldiering  203rd Battalion Bans the Use of Liquor  Irs  Its Ranks  The popularity of "Dry Soldiering"  has been demonstrated beyond the possibility of a doubt in the response received by Lieut.-Col. J. E. Hansford in  his call for recruits for the 203rd battalion of which he.is the officer commanding.  Many of those who have flocked to  join the king's forces in this new* battalion, have stated that, the fact that  the saloon is to be always "out of  bounds" for its members, has been the  one point of preference .most outstanding and influencing them in their  selection of leadership.  The 23rd was originally heralded as  the "Methodist Battalion." This, however, was an error, as its ranks are  open to all. It might be stated, however, that the entire Western Canada  organization of the Methodist church  s behind the recruiting scheme, and its  long-reaching effectiveness is already  bearing much fruit.  Lieut. F. P. Lloyd of -saskatoon, the  third of three sons of Priucipal Lloyd  of Emmanuel College, in that city to  enlist for service overseas, has been  selected to take charge of recruiting-  work in. the northern part of Saskatch-.  ewan, and has opened quarters in the  Canada Building in Saskatoon.  Capt. W. R. Green, wlfose father's  name is a by-word among the Grain  Growers of Southern Saskatchewan, is  in charge of recruiting activities in  the southern portion of the province,  and will have his headquarters in  Moose Jaw.  For those enlisting now arrangements have been made that they may  return home for both seeding and harvest, which is a big consideration to  farmers' sons who are thus afforded  the opportunity of doing dduble service for their king and country.  Those interested in the particular  benefits offered them in this battalion  might either write or wire the Winnipeg headquarters in the Great West  Permanent Loan Building, and instructions will be forwarded without delay,  and transportation arranged to the  nearest centre.  Yes, It Has Existed  Quite true it is, as .Tane Addams  avers, that China existed a thousand  years without an army. "Existed" is  the proper word. So does a slave exist. So does a yellow clog, kicked by  every passer-by, yapped at by every  fellow canine, scratched by every cat.  But do slaves and yellow dogs live?  Is their existence worth while? If  China, has so existed for a thousand  years it also has been the victim of  every freebooting tribe that has come  its way. It has been enslaved by every  adventurous nation-. It has boen  forced under the yoke of foreign dynasties and obiged to boar tho badge of  servitude���������a pigtail. And it has been  stagnant, so stagnant it has been unable oven to decay like decent, self-  respecting countries under bondage.  China is a fine example of the glories  of pacificism.���������Detroit Free, Press.  John Bull Young Again  From an Address by Lloyd George to  Munition    Workers  What  has  been    accomplished    in  these works is an illustration of what  Britishers   can   do   under     pressure.  Only   a   few weeks   ago    they' were  turning out mantelpieces here,  I believe, and catching dab-chicks in the  stream.   (Laughter).    Now  you  have  got    these    magnificent    works,    all  within a few weeks and there (pointing to the shells) is the result. There  is your 12-inch and there is your 8-  incb,   and  there  is   your heavy howitzer���������aii, essential  to victory  in  the  field.     I     am     not   under-estimating  those gallant men at the front, but I  tell you that the work which you are  doing   and   are   about  to   do   in   the  course of the next few weeks is worth  an army of corps of the best infantry.  (Cheers).    You have no notion until  you go there how important the work  is  that you    are  doing.    There  you  find    a    network    of trenches,  labyrinths of trenches, with every form of  obstacle and entanglements, and concrete   emplacements    that   our   men  cannot get over.    It. is no  good  pitting their   poor bodies against machine  guns and  trench  mortars.    How  are   they   to     get    through?     Those'  shells are going to see them through.  (Cheers).    The  work you  are doing  here   is  going  to  smash  through  to  victory;   and   if  you  saw,   as   I   did,  row    after    row*    of these that were  just  waitng    to    be  sent  across  as  presents for    the Kaiser���������how    they  cheer the hearts of. our troops. They  do not destroy life;  they spare  life.  Believe me, without these, thousands,  scores of thousands, of the most gallant men that ever left the shores of  Britain would  fall.    With these they  will not merely    get through to victory, but will come back rejoicing in  victory (cheers), and I am so glad to  know that you here, each one of you  know* that, realize it,    and    that you  are    putting    the    whole     of    your  strength   into   it.     It   is   a  merely between the British  the army of the Kaiser:  it  between    the    British workman  and  the    workshops    of    Germany.    The  British   workman     is .  supplying   the  material   which    is   going  to   enable  us  to  win the  victory that will   destroy forever the despotism of Prussian   militarism    and    inaugurate   a  reign of freedom in Europe. (Cheers).  This war is going to  make a  difference in the life of this country and  of the world, a difference for better  or for wofse which you cannot calculate.    This is one  of those moments  in the history of    the world when it  takes a plunge downwards or a flight  upwards.    Which    it    takes    depends  not    upon our soldiers alone;   it depends   upon     our   workmen   also.    I  can see now- the  difference which it  is making in Britain.   In the old days  the hustler was regarded as an alien  enemy, who. had come to this country  to steal tha  bread  of the  easy-going  Briton:  but we have discovered that  the hustler is a British-born subject,  living among us.    John Bull was getting  soft,  flabby,  fat,    and   indolent.  He  was just slouching along.    Then  the wrar came, and now his tissues are  as firm as ever; he is alert, vigorous,  and strong; he is hitting hard, and is  going  to   work  his   way  through   to  victory.    John    Bull is young again;  the      war    has     rejuvenated     him.  (Cheers).   I see before me 2,000 men  who mean business,    'there are a million more outside    and more than a  million   in     France     and   elsewhere  overseas   waiting   for    munitions.     I  know  you  will  not  disappoint   them.  They are gallant    and brave fellows.  Theirs   the   discomfort,    theirs     the  danger, theirs, too often, the sacrifice.  Put forth the whole of your strength  as  you   are   doing  today,   and    their  sacrifice  will  not be  in  vain.  fight not  army and  is a fight  For any floors ��������� tile,  woo d9 linoleum ���������  quickly takes up all the dirt  and removes  all the  stains  The Anonymity of Writers  Strange  Case  of a   Man   Who  Wrote  Articles on Fashion  One of the standing subjects of humorous remarks among New York  theatre goers are the weekly articles  on men's fashions, published over the  nom de plume of "Beau Brummel," in  the programs iu the theatres of the  better class.  Some people think "Beau Brummel"  is a woman, while others believe him  to be merely a haberdasher with a  drug habit. However that may be,  it is a reasonable supposition that no  one Avears any of the clothes that  "Beau Brummel" writes about. It  couldn't be done. If any man ever arrayed himself in one week's output of  the "Beau Brummel" fashions and  started down Broadway he'd land in  jail or the psychopathic ward at Belle-  vue.  The case of "Beau Brummel" is  merely funny. But here is a grim ana \  pitiful little tragedy which is in a way  related to it. In a small tenement at  the eastern and poverty-stricken end  of Fifty-sixth street, the police found  John Conwell and his old mother,  dead from gas. The man was pas*  middle age, -and unmarried. They  lived alone, and he idolized the woman���������a poor old drunkard. The neighbors said he used to cry hysterically  when she would stagger home, stupe  fied with drink. At last he turned on  the gas while she slept, and died with  her.  He wore cotton overalls at the time  of his death, and the few articles of  his wearing apparel found in. the  apartment were worn and ragged. YTet  the letters and papers whieh the police took possession of proved that  he earned a livelihood fpr himself and  his ".mother by writng articles on the  latest  fashions   in  men's   dress.  Identifying Ropes In Navy  Every rope used in the British  naval service, from heaving line to  hawser, wherever used on board ship  or in dockyard, has woven into one  of its strands, for purposes of i'den-  tification, a colored thread.  A different color is used according* to the port of manufacture; red,  blue, green'and yellow being adopted  for different ports. The presumption  is that any rope with the colored  thread found outside of such uses  is in improper hands.  This custom has- prevailed in ths  British navy since long before the  days' of  Nelson.
