way compulsory. The teaching
is imparted ;.at no cost to the
members, aitd the knowledge
gained is what every British boy
should acquire, and once acquired
"will never be .forgotten.
Through the authorized militia
of Canada, patriotism (although
naturally ingrained in every Canadian boy) is further inculcated
and more favorably fostered
through the knowledge of defence
thus gained, and when the time
.of trial comes from the training
they are ableYtp defend their
homes and firesides.
Those joining the active militia
of Canada are, bf course, required
to take the usiial oath of allegiance _tnd agree to serve three
. years or until J^gjally discharged ,
*oi�� dismissed or removed, or until
their resignation, is accepted according to the regulations.
The members are furnished
with the regulation uniform,
greatcoats aud full equipment?
The number of prescribed drills
is, we believe, twelve in each
year for "which they are. paid.
They are taught how to march
and go through the various movements, the rifle and bayonet ox-
eroises, and also how to shoot at

They learn to their advantage

It behooves all young men oB
Creston to join and assist thoso

For Creston this moans another step in the right direction
onward in its prosperity and
growth," and wc hope the peoplo
of Creston will loyally and enthusiastically support tho company as tho othor towns in Kootenay are doing.
The company is efficiently

Directly the cause was the outrageous demand made upon Servia  by Austria to permit Servians, suspected of complicity in the murder  of Archduke Ferdinand to be tried  in their own land by Austrian officers.

Louis VI. of France was less^  fortunate. A visit to the Royal barber plunged two nations���������France and  England���������into intermittent warfare  .which lasted 300 years.  According to the-story, the Archbishop of Rouen persuaded the kind.  to remove his heard in common  with his subjects. The act led to  so much friction with the queen that  at last Louis divorced her, to become a few months later the wife  of Henry. II. of England. From this  marriage centuries of bloodshed may  be said to have followed.  In7 an iron cage in the tower of  the dathedral in Modena, -Italy, a  bucket which 900 years ago was the  cause of a terrible war may be seen  today. .Soldiers of Modena, in a  niischie'v'oi-s mood stole the bucket  from a; public well in Bolgona and  refused to return it. The States  were Tivals and were jealous of each  other and fights between soldiers of  the two followed. This spark ^kindled a' fire of war which devastated a  large part..of iHurope and led to the  Imprisonment for" life ' of the King  of Sardinia, son of the German emperor.   ?       7  ti ?"       .-'-'?���������'������������������������������������ ���������'���������?���������  A broken teapot started a war  fn China 250 years ago. which cost  half a million lives.

When travelling through a lawless  . grovince in the northwest of China  some of his retinue, who had fallen  behind the main? body, were intercepted by a band of robbers, and among  the spoils? tehvteapot was found and  contemptuously thrown on tlie ground  and broken. The mandarin reported  Ills loss to the emp -cr. a force of  soldiers Tvas sent out, and a long and  terrible war ensued.  Lord Palmerston once said that only  three men had ever known the exact nature of the troubles in Schles-  wlg-Holsteln, which led to two great  wars. Two of them had died before  lhe wars broke out, and he, the third  of the trinity, had completely f. rgot-  ten what it was all about.  The manipulation by Count Bismarck, then Prussia's Foreign Minister, of a telegram set Prussia and  France flying at each other's throat  in 1870. The French ambassador  -went to Ems,... where Emperor Wil  Hum I. then was, to aslc him not to  apnrove the ambition of Prince Leopold to become the King of Spain.  The king refused to give a definite  answer, but Prince Anthony of Ho-  henvrollorn withdrew his scion's candidacy. A. report of the conference  was submitted by telegram to Count  Bismarck. with authorization to  publish It.

Ths muzzle velocity  was less than hali that of the missiles  now employed? Then, too, bayonet and  sabre charges were, more common.  These resulted in hideous wounds,  very 'difficult"for surgeons to handle.  The bullets which are flying in Europe today are of less diameter than  the ordinary lead pencil- They are  jacketed .'With .nickel,'lead-or steel and  have tremendous velocity.  The soft, mushrcanting bullet of the  old day resulted in the shattering of  bones and the crushing, rather than  cutting, of tissues.^. Infection was al'  most inevitable, the grease being especially unsanitary. A wound In the  abdomen was considered necessarily  fatal. The death rate among the  wounded was enormous.  In recent campaigns there are instances where soldiers shot in what  were once considered vital spots have  walked unsupported to the field hospitals.-  THE STUDY OF WORJS  It's? a   Helpful   Scheme  to   Use   Your,  Dictionary Every Day  "Writing an article "Treasure in  Books," in the Woman's Home Companion, Laura Spencer Porter gives,  the following excellent advice about  the advantages to be gained from the  study of words: ���������  "The study of wbrds-^-it may sound  to you a dry thing, yet I promise you  it is .not; very far from it.  "And this brings me to suggest that  the habit of one of the great writers  of studying carefully from a good dictionary 7 five words each day is one  from which we might all of us get a  good deal of profit. Or take a good  book of synonyms, for Instance, and  learn from it each day five words  somewhat similar, comparing and  weighing carefully the meanings and  values of them.

While Europe is in the throes of a  -gigantic war such as the world nas  never before witnessed, there is peace  within our own borders. By reason  of the present conditions, the farmers  of the west will benefit. A better  price will be secured for grain and all  farm produce, and wheat** the farmer  .benefits the whole west will share in  his prosperity; Because of the partial  suspension of trans-oceanic trade, the  industries of Canada will be stimulated toJ supply our home demand.  Goods that have heretofore been imported from Germany and elsewhere  will be produced and manufactured in  Canada.  Now is the favorable time for the  expansion of business opportunities,  and now more than ever before is the  time for the people of the western  provinces as well as the whole of  Canada to stand loyally together. By  supporting our local' merchants we are  contributing to the welfare cf our own  community and keeping the money in  our own town and district. We should  go further, and buy only goods that  are manufactured in our own town pi"  province in preference to competing  lines of goods. While, the west is ;��������� rim-  arily a 0rain producing country, and  agriculture will no doubt always be  the chief industry, there are many  other industries already established,  which if loyally and consistently supported by the western people, will, in  time, contribute immenselr to the  general wealth and importance of the  west. Many lines of food products  are being manufactured in the principal cities from Winnipeg to Vancouver, and if we insist on demanding  from our local merchant only those  articles which are manufactured in  the west in preference to the imported, and of ten-times inferior articles,  we will be contributing to one of tlie  factors that is bound to assist the  Canadian west "is gaining the great  commercial importance to which s-he  is destined to attain?

Idiot   Child . Made   Sound   by   Qrnai.  Trsnsplanatios.  Dr. Serge Voronoff, the wall-known  Paris surgeon, is said -o have succeeded in fjrafting a monkey's tryrold  gland (a gland whose functions are  unknown, saddled upon tha larynx  and windpipe), on a child suffering  from cretinism, anc'. effecting _. radical cure. (Cretinism is a .state of  imperfect mental development, or  idiocy).  Dr. Voronoff described the case  before the Paris Academy of Medicine, lt was unanimously regarded  as opening a new path in constructive surgery, rich in discoveries,  which will diminish human suffering.  The child, aged fourteen years, was  attacked when eight by myxedema  (atrophy of the thyroid gland) as a  sequel to scarlet fever, and ever after  lias presented all the symptoms of  severe cretinism.     *  Dr. Voronoff, in ths presence of  nineteen doctors, grafted to the child's  neck the right lobe ol .the thyroid  gland of a'large baboon.  . The child has since continued to  grow rapidly in body and mind.  Whil*. formerly apathetic and silly,  she *. now turbulent and sharp.  This is the first time ihat grafting,  of an organ from an animal to a  human being has been accomplished  with success.  A number ol previous attempts  were made by Dr. Alexis Carrel, of  the Rockefeller Institute, v. of New  York, but all failed.  It is believed that the operation  may become common, and that numbers of cretins and imbeciles now  leading a purely vegetative existence  may be transformed into useful members of society.  1THE VALUE OF QUB  PUBLIC HIGHWAYS  Revolver Contest of the.

"Love is the occupation of the idle  man, the distraction of tlie warrior,  the stumbling block of the sovereign."  "A great captain ought to say to  himself several times a day:. If .the  enemy appear on my front, my right  or my left, what should I do? If he  finds himself embarrassed, he is ill  pos'ted."  "When a king is said, to he a kind  man, the reign is a failure."  "Heart! How do you know wha.  your heart ls? It is a bit of you  crossed by a big vein in which the  blood goes quicker when you run."  "The heart of a statesman should  be In his head."  "High tragedy is the school of great  mem It is the duty ot sovereigns to  encourage and spread it. Tragedy  warms the soul, raises th heart, can  and ought to create heroes."  "Bleeding enters Into the combination of political medicine."  "The vice of our modern institutions is thnt they havd l.othlng which  appeals to tho Imagination.

Proof  of   Their   Enduring   Quality   ie   Afforded in .Roads Now Extant.  Because they go. over the difficulties   of levels   most  easily  that  way  and on account of the general habit  of using the  waterways as by-ways,  the first roads usually followed along  the banks of rivers.       "?  It is so today in Canada. It has  been the rule in all the ages. But  although that might answer well,  when the trapper or hunter made  chief use of the roads, it was different when armies had to be moved*  and moved expeditiously. The short  roads, wide and hard, became necessary. .  -Because Rome was essentially a  military nation, the Romans were  great roa'd builders, as had been the  disciplined Perstans and Assyrians  before,them.  The Roman roads were    tlie    first .  real  highways,  and  abundant    proof  of   their   enduring   quality   is   afford-  ed by wthe   extensive   remains    that  have  been found in different    parts  of the country. The Roman engineer,  chose high ground wherevei* he could,  and he built his road high above the  surface of the   land    through whicb"  he was marking-it?   His first object?  was   to  make  a  path  between    two  points,   so   that  troops, could  march  from one to the other as quickly and  as easily as possible.  The Roman road-makers, therefore, set/out with the definite idea  of making a road from ine capap or  military station  to  another.  The fact th-.*; the roads which the  Roman engineer drove through wood  and valley are, even alter nineteen  centuries have passed, so frequently  found to be in a good state of preservation, speaks volumes for. the thoroughness of the workmanship and  the excellence of the materials which  went to their making. Roman methods of road-making were different  from those in vogue today, but were  sound and -were well carried out.  First two parrallel ditches were cut,  marking "the edges of the proposed  roadway. On the soil between the  ditches was laid a layer of rubble  stones about 5 inches deep; next A  layer of concrete or stones mixed  -with lime and 15 inches deep*, over  that another 10 inches or so of rhu>  cleus���������fine pounded niater-al mixed  with lime; and finally the top or back.  . which was made of paving stones, four  or five inches, thick, and cementod  together.  Of course, the methods of the Roman road makers varied somewhat.  Like tlie sensible, practical men they  were, they used the material that  was ready to hand. Thus, in the  chalky, soil of Kent, sections of the  Roman road show it to have been  made of alternate layers of chalk  and gravel and flint. Then again  when marshy ground had to be  crossed, the Romans built a causeway consisting of six strata or layers, based on marsh mud, with piles  about four feet in length ������ and wood  laid above them.   . \    -  The advent of the stage coach  showed tlie possibilities of quicker  t,rahsit. and. Incidentally, the necessity of improving the roads. Although as early as 1663 an act waa  passed authorizing the first toll-gates  or turnpikes to be erected, this oniy  apnlied to the Great North Road,  and elsewhere the roads were almost  ���������t* bad as ever.  The rebellion of 1745 gave a great  imwilse to the making of British  rouds tor military as well as civil  nurocses. Tho militniy value ot  good roads once realized, steady  nrogrcss was made in opening up  communication between tliie different  toviis on both sides of the border.  The extension of tho turnpike sys-  tnm, however, met with violent op*  position from tho populace, who -regarded the toll-bars as so many barriers to freedom of moveem:-t. During the 'fifties of the eighteen th century bodies of armed men assombled  So destroy the turnpikes and burn  down the tool-houses. Troops had  M he despatched to quell^ .ho dlsor-  d cr.  It Is a remarkable fact that ona  of the flrst and most successful ot  l-'rii.iHh road makers was a blind man  --Tohn Motcalf, of Knaresborough,  who was responsible for the con-  ntructlon of over 1R0 mllos of roads  in Lancashire. -Yorkshire, Cheshire  nnd Derbyshire.

I)  Many Communications  The" Review is not very heavy  <m editorials this issue. For some  weeks contributed articles have  been piling up on us so we are this  week compelled to omit our editori-  .-tl utterances in an attempt to clear  the copy hook of at least one timely  communications.

It is generally known that 'the Collector adds twenty per cent, to the  amount voted by the annual meeting, j  Some districts consider this a reason j  for voting less than they thhilk will be  needed. But usually by far the greater part of the taxes are paid iu time  to receive the discount, and ten per  cent of the twenty goes for that purpose.

Another, and the chief cause of  trouble, is that rural districts forgot  that while they vote taxes say in July  101-i, for the running of their schools  for a year it is not for the school year  commencing that month, but for the  calendar yeai*, commencing the following January.

Financing of  rn l  ���������__.?������ i__  Extracts from an essay given by Inspector Bruce at the recent convention  of trustees held at Nelson.  This summer an American educationist wrote to many of the leaders in  rural school education throughout the  country asking: What is the most-  needed improvement in rural education to-day ? Of the various improvements that were considered to be of  che first importance in the United  States only 19 are needed here; the  others we already have. Of the 19  improvements 17 would cost money.  The question, then, is not "Do the  rural schools need more money," but  " How are they to get it."  In fully orgahized school districts  the province pays directly to each  teacher employed four hundred and  eighty dollars, provided that the  schools have been conducted in accordance with Rules and Regulations prescribed by the Council of Public Instruction, and that each public school  building and its equipment be satisfactory to the Council.  The  province   also  grants to  the  certificates of indebtedness.   But I am  told-by bot^irustees  and bank managers ?that:vthe-tbanks do not care to  lo^n''',^oi'ie^0n^his security.   Andthe  distjrietbr board as a body has no power to bbrwwniouey for the running  expenses? of?the? school,  or for the  teacher's salary.   In the past, therefore, rural school boards have been in  the habit of borrowing money for suoh  purposes on their personal notes, renewed from time to time until. the  taxes come in.    While I have nfever  heard of a case where a trustee has  had to  pay a cent  on oue  of these  notes, yot it is not good business;  the  fact that his name is on a note lessens  the private borrowing power of each  trustee, should he at any time during  the life of the note wish toraiso money  at a bank.    Many trustees, therefore,  will not go   on a personal  note for  school purposes,  nor should they be  J oxpected to do so.  Tho Education Department recogniz-  j ed this difficulty and during the last  t session of the legislature the following  clause was added to the Public School  Act; "Upon the order of the Superintendent of   Education   the   Deputy  Minister of Finance shall advance to j  the Board of School Trustees of any  rural district a sum cf money, not exceeding in any year 75 percent, of the  total amount voted at the last annual  meeting, to supplement the teacher's  salary and  for  incidental  expenses;  such advance shall be repaid out of  and shall be a first charge upon all future  school  tax  collections."      This,  amendment applies to all rural schools  whether fully organized or assisted.  But I do  not think that this means  that the Province is willing to become  a  fairy  godmother   to   rural  school  districts that choose   not to vote sufficient taxes.   It is evidently intended  to. apply to cases of unusual hardship,  as for instance, where a large part of  the taxes hava not been collected*, and  ib has not been considered practicable  to hold a tax sale, and to apply to new-  wVB   y^^w  and a half year's  1914. they vote  merely enough to carry them until the  end of June, 1915, they forget that it  will be after that date before they receive any of the taxes voted; while  such may not be their intention they  are arranging to run their school on  credit.  It therefore seems plain that, unless  the i*atepayers wish and are able to  borrow money to run their school,  they should recognize .the facts, and  vote in July enough money to parry  the district until the second New Year  following. If thev voted in July, of  this year, sufficient taxes to run their  school until the end of 1915, that is, if  they voted one and a half years' taxes I ly-organized school districts which  the proceeds should be received chiefly have not had time to place their finan-  in July, 1915.   Then the indebtedness ces upon a sound basis,  for the year ending June. 1915, could  be paid. of., and the remainder ofthe  amount received would be in the bank  earning interest for the district, and  would be drawn out as required during  the last six months of 1915! It may be  said that this plan makes no provision  for the first half of 1916. But the  largest exsenditures, for repairs, the  winter's fuel, etc., will have been made  in the summer or fall, and for what  remains, the falling in of the taxes  that were in arrears, or that were not  paid in time to receive thie discount,  will usually be sufficient. If not, it is  easy for a district whose finances are  run in a business-like, manner to get a  teacher one dollar  for every dollar by | few months' credit; it is different with  which the  salary of  a teacher  is increased by district assessment, but in  no case does the supplementary grant  exceed one hundred dollars per annum.  In other  words,  if the  teacher is engaged at forty dollars or less a month,  the Province pays his salary.   If he is  engaged at fifty-six and two-third dollars a month, the Province pays him  forty-eight and one-third dollars of it,  the district pays him eight and one-  third dollars.   If he be paid more than  fifty-six and two-third dollars, the district pays all the  difference.   As It is  impossible  to  get  a teacher, worth  having at all, for fifty-six and two-  third dollars a month, it may be taken  as a rule that the Province  pays the  teacher forty*-eight and one-thirid dollars a month, ahd tho district raises  the remainder of his salary.  The chief cause of financial trouble  in rural school districts is that usually  not enough money is voted   nt  the  annual meeting.    The trustee  board  should present at this meeting an estimate of  tho cxgcndituroH for which  they consider taxes Hhould bo voted  by the ratepayers.   The trustees aie  in close touch with  the needs of the  school and should bo better able to  make an estimate than anyone else in  the district.   To ho of vuluo in assisting the ratepayers te  decide upon tho  amount of taxes  to be voted the estimates tiliould as far as possible give  t'lu-h item for .which money may Ih; required, and with tin* amount, likely to  U- needed tor each.    Tiicro should also  Im* ineluded a fair mini  foi- incidental  expenses, for there will almost certainly lie some iinfuiseen expoditure iiooon-  HiM-y.

If the  financing of a rural school is to be successful enough taxes must be voted to  cover every probable contingency  arising before the end of the following  calendar year.  a district that deliberately plans to be  always in the hole.  Of course af tier once the annual meeting has voted a yejar and a half's taxes  it is not necessary during the following years to vote more than one year's  taxes.  At the annual meeting some of the  less far-seeing rate-payers may argue  that if tho estimates are large enough  to cover every probable need, and if  one and one-half years'taxes are voted,  the district after all may not need all  the money collected. I do not think  this will often happen. But even if it  does happen, it is much better to collect too much money, and havo some  of it in the bank drawing interest,  than to run the risk of having to borrow monoy at a high rate of interest,  or, still worse, the risk of having the  education of the children retarded bocauso tho district is not able to borrow  monoy. And if the money' raised bo  not nil needed, there will bo that much  less to bo votod noxt yoar.  It is for the Board to prepare for  tho annual meeting an estimate of  what should bo voted, along tho abovo  lines or not, as tho Board thinks host.  But the Board cannot vote the taxes;  it is for the annual meeting to add to  or diminish the estimate according to  its host judgemontof tho requirements  of the district, However a fair itemized estimate, prepared by itcoinpetenl.

The Subject chosen was Georg Frederic Handel, the well.known musician who  lived 250 years ago. A paper was read  dealing with the composer's life and  works, and it contained several anecdotes. On one occasion Handel had a  difficulty with a soprano singer, who  grumbled at her part in an opera.  Handel opened a window and dragg.  ing her to it threatened to throw her  out if she didn't immediately sing'the  music us he had written. Necoloss to  say the lady instantly complied* His  latter years were saddened by his almost total blindness. He died April  20, 1750, and is buried in Westminster  Abbey.  After the paper tho following programme was rendered by Mr. and  Mrs. Crompton, assisted by Miss Helen  Fowler:  Piano���������-Dead March from Saul.  Violin���������Largo, from Xerxes.

This letter, to Guy Lowenburg  from Senator Brady of Idaho, discusses the progress made in the  project of draining the Kootenay  Valley. The government of the  United States has appointed a representative engineer to, take the  matter up with the British Columbia government as soon as the latter appoints such a representative.  The letter points out that the cooperation of the two governments  is necessary before the work can be  carried.out satisfactorily and urges  the necessity of- speedy action in  appointing a representative to meet  the engineer named by the U.S.  government.    The letter:.  " I have a letter Jrom Charles G.  Boeder of Spokane, who is taking  a manifest interest in the draining  of tho Kootenay valloy, in whioh  he enoloses vme a copy of tho resolutions passed by the Creston board  ol! trado at a special, meeting on  August 18th, 1914.  "Mr? Boeder also desires me tp  indicate to you what progress lias  boon made by the federal government of tho U.S. in this mattor. I  will say that wo have roallzod for  a groat many years that in order to  proporly drain Kootonay valloy tho  government of BjC and our government would havo to 00-oporato  in ovory way. Wo tried to have  some drainage laws passed by tho  legislature that would holp. Tho  people in the valloy havo tried  ovory roasonablo plan that oould bo  thought of for draining those lands  and tho task was too groat and I  became satisfied that it oould not  bo accomplished unleso it warn dono  on a largo scale along conservative  husinoss linos. First, I took tho  iiiiMrior up with tho secretary ol  iigVicultiire here and ho appointed  a man I'roin tho bureau of drainage  to look   into  tho mat tor  from   tlio  interior, Mr. Lane, and after several conferences with him I convinced  him that it was for the benefit of  the government in more ways than,  one to have the Kootenay Valley  drained. First, because it is one  of the most fertile valleys in our  state, and, in fact, in the entire  northwest. " Second, the undertaking was-too great for individuals to  handle. Third, the state laws are  not such as to permit of favorable  action. Fourth, tlie government  has over 6,000 acres of Indian lands  that could be doubled or quadrupled in value by the drainage of this  valley. I had a hard time convincing the secretary that they should  drain these lands for the Indians  and let them pay their reasonable  proportion. At his suggestion I  took the matter up with Mr. Sells,  our commissioner of Indian affairs,  and went over it with him very  thoroughly. He agreed with me  that these lands ought to be drained and that the Indians pay their  reasonable proportion. This places  us in splendid shape on this side of  the line, for if the two governments can agree on a plan of drainage I do not think there will be a  bit of. trouble in having onr government authorize the issuance of  bonds to cover the same. You  know better than I how your government will handle the matter.  "After these   consultations   the  depai*tme_-t  took   the   matter  up  with Premier McBride   and  asked  him t6 appoint a man  to meet the  engineer appointed by- our government  at  Bonner's  Ferry and   do  whatever is necessary,  to  go  over  carefully all the plans  and surveys  that have been made and formulated up to this   time and  then make  their report as to just what should  be done;    Our government  has its  man ready to go at any time.    It so  happens that while I was governor  of Idaho I visited Victoria and*-was'  very    pleasantly   entertained ?? by  Premier McBride  and  I was very  favorably impressed with him as a  man of affairs, and  after t#e had  our representative appointed I took  the liberty of personally writing  Premier McBride and urged him to  appoint  an  engineer to meet the  representative of our government,  who is an engineer.    We  are now  trying to have him make  this appointment and if you and your associates can  assist  in  any way in  having this appointment made at  an  early date I  can  say without  hesitation  that  our  man  will be  ready for a conference at Bonner's  Ferry  at  any time  on  ten days'  notice.    I would like you to secure  early action   if   possible, as  I  am  anxious to take the matter up with  the next session of oongress in December.  "In olosing I wish to say that we  are in hearty sympatliy with tho  plans of the people at Bonner's  Ferry and that we are ready to cooperate with B.C. in any way to  have tho drainage done. I am a  plain, praotioal business man witli  years of ������xperieneo in the west and  havo no hesitation in saying that  this Valley oan and ought to be  drained, and as it oan only be done  proporly through tho co-operation  of both governments it is up to the  people*of this Valloy to do their utmost to have tho wark started ond  pushed to completion at tho earliest possible date.  I will bo in Idaho within the  novt fow days and tvm sending you  all thoso faots no that in caso any oj  yonr pooplo desire to moot mo at  Bonner's Ferry and talk tho matter  ovor you will havo tho data boforp  you.

"It should have been my work," the  old man said moodily, "but a man  without a nose is too marked a figure  for secret and delicate missions; so it  falls to you, Eira?  (Continued)  Eira put out her hand and touched  the little heap of dust. Neither  spoke; there was nothing to say.  Such hopes as two human beings  have seldom known, had all vanished  in that little pile of dust.  "Yet my hoy did it���������your father  did it, Eira," the old man exclaimed,  fie turned and took froni a shelf a.  large object, dull in color and irregular in shape, and in size about as  big as a melon. It was seamed with  innumerable cracks, and appealed to  have been often broken and to have  been as often carefulily put together  again. At present it was secured by  a multiude of fine wires, as if their  suppcvt was neeessary to keep it together. The old man held it very  tenderly in his hands.  "Here is the proof," he said. "Of  eourse it is a failure, for it is full of  flaws and so fragile that it shivers Into fragments at a touch. But it is  there, Eira, it is there, and you know  your father cabled to me only the day  before his death to say he .iad solved  the problem of stability, the one difficulty left. Then he died, and the  man who caused his death has never  yet been punished."  "I know. 1 kuow!v' Eira said quickly; "do not let us go a.l over that  Egain."  "You think God will punish him."  the old n_3_-_ said; "so do 1, but I wish  to be His instrument' Yet if we mak :  no attempt to punish him���������"  "When you say p-onishrut-u. you  mean revenge, grandfather," Eira answered: "and we have neither the  right nor the power to revenge our-  selVes."'  "And so you will let this man remain in possession of the secret your  father lost his life for. ".us great discovery that this man stole from  him?"  "No." said Eira quickly, still playing with that heap of black dust that  lay upon the linen sheet on the table.  "No, I should be very willing to do'  anything to recover that. I would offer flrst to buy it bad., and if he  would not sell it, then I would get it  from him in any other way I could.  My father's memory has a right to  the fame such a discovery would  bring it, and his daughter has more  than a right; she; has a duty to vindicate his memory, and to let all the  world Know of his genius.

"Well,  I  am  ready,"   she  said.  "One thing more," the old man  said. "You- tell me I must not see.:  revenge on the man who ruined my  spa at the very moment of his great  success. Well, but I've a more subtle  mind thau you, Eira, and I think at  least I would like to have hlm here,  on this spot, in this very house, perhaps, to witness our success."  "How could you make him come?"  asked Eira. "If you gave him any  hint of what we were doiug. he would  be at once warned. Even if 1 left a  message for him after getting the  paper from him, he would follow mo  and perhaps overtake me."  "Oh, child." the old man smiled. * I  should not go to work like that, tie  should come of his own free will and  yet not knowing why ho came. All men  are puppets to those who know how  to pull the strings���������whioh aro called  motives. Will you help me in my  whim,  Eira?"  "I think tt is rather silly, grandfather," she said frankly.  "Oh, well, I am approaching my dotage, you know," he answered with his  strange s-uile. "When will you  start?"  '���������Today,*' she      id.  "Tomorrow," he said. "Come into  the next room. There's much we must  settle and arrange. Yours will be no  light task, Eira, to match yourseir  against such a man to win from him  such a secret."   .  They \v-ent together into the adjoining room, where they talked long and  earnestly, while in the apartment they  had left the dull coals of the furnace  flickered and glowed and expired, and  on the table still lay that small heap  of black dust in which such dreams  1 had vanished���������dreams of solving one  of the most curious of nature's see-  rets and of winning as well almost unimaginable wealth.  Hugh laughed and flung the hook  back.  "Does evil in dudo bankruptcy. I  'wonder?*' ho said aloud; "or do T not  come under the heading of n good  man? No, Plato, you are not for me  today."  He sat. down nt his desk again, and  taking up his pen scribbled mechanically on the back of an envelope:  "If ono woro to discover tho secret  of making diamonds!"

ADHESIVE POSTAGE STAMPS  The First Crude Ones '��������� hat Were Is*  sued by Great Brltain  The adhesive postage stamp had.its  origin in England as a direct outeomo  of the postal reforms introduced by  Sir Rowland Mill, whose master mind  created not only the inestimable boon  cf penny postage, but the means by  which, it was carried into effect���������tho  adhesive  postage stamps.

'i'or three short years Great Britain  enjoyed a monopoly of this novel and  handy method of collecting postage,  until in July, 1843, the enlightened  empire of BraEil followed suit with n  series of native manufacture, adorned  with large numerals of value in-place  of a design.

She spoke with  passion, with a heaving breast and  flashing eyes, and the old man had  again on his strange face the look of  a mysterious hate. "Yes," she said  again, "I would do anything to do  -justice to father's mmory and to let  the whole world know that bad Englishman for what he is."  "Well, will you try?" her grandfather risked ouickly; "are you brave  enough to try?"  CHAPTER I.  Look Before You Leap  "If on? were to discover the secret  of making diamonds!"  The sentence seemd to buzz in Hugh  Tallentine's brain as if a tiny voice  whispered it there ceaselessly, inspired  by a sense of biting contrast between  such illimitable dreams of wealth and  the sorry truth of his own position.

But now  it was broad day in the city of London, and no time for dreams, and  Hugh turned again to the complicated  figures and accounts he was dealing  with.  Hugh possessed a very good head  for ligures, but not the most expert  mathematician in the world can persuade two and two to make five. Hul'I-  pushed the papers from him with a  sigh, and sounded the littld bell that  stood on his table.  "Has Mr. Logan come in yet from  lunch?" he asked the errand hoy who  appeared to his summons.  "No, sir," answered the boy.  "Teil hlm I want to see liim whon  he comes back, will you?" said Hugh.  "Yes, sir," returned the boy and retired,   wondering   why   iho   governor  Boomed to be quite forgotting his own  lunch today.  Hugh began to walk restlessly up  and down tho llttlo office that seemed  to have a curiously cramping effect, on  his tall and hugely built form. "K  one could discover tho secret of making diamonds!" Now why was it that  sentence would come bothering him  ro?

Food Shortage Next Year  The London Chronicle says: "A  timely warning to prepare against the  inevitable shortage in the world's supply of foodstuffs is given by Lord Mil-  ner who points out that although the  present harvest is abundant, immense  decrease in the production of lf)15  must result from the fact that all the  able bodied males-of France, Germany,  Austria and Russia are now engaged  in fighting?  "Of the 050,000,000 quarters of  wheat and rye annually produced  throughout the world, 350,000,000  come from these countries, and the  other producing countries cannot possibly make up the do^ciency.  "Lord Milner predicts tint In the  latter half of next year, if not before,  nil the nations which live on wheat or  rye, will ho competing fiercely for n  share   in   tho   diminished   supply."  .

Standards of Machinery  The statemen. has frequently beea  made that farm machinery is not designed so niuch as it it built by rul������  of thumb.    The fact that practically;  all of it must do-its work while tra*  veiling over the ground makes economy   of  power  r?nd  .light  treight  tha  first  consideration.    Frequently    the  factor  of  safety  in  some  important  parts is cut to too low a point as* a  result and considerable experimenting  is required    before    the    machine is  equally strong in every parL-   It   has .  been felt, however, by the manufac- '  turers  and  educators who are  members of the American Society of Agricultural  Engineers  that    some basic  principles    could    be worked out in  connection with farm machinery. The  committee  on standards has made a.  good start in this direction,    but    is  first taking up    some of the    minor  problems  which   cause  a  great  dea?  of grief for both maker and user. Th*  question cf    standardizing ��������� parts    so  that the cost of repairs    can be reduced   is   regarded   oneY of  first   importance.    Such matters as' standard  screw threads; height of wheel, width  of  tire  and   width  of tread  in   waggons;   plough  siJses and shapes;   singletrees, doubletrees and eveners for"  implements,   are   all  receiving  atteu-.  tion by the committee, of which Prot  J. B. Davidson, of Iowa State Colleges,  is  the active head.    The gas engine  is receiving its share    of    attention,  especially in  connection with a uniform method of    rating    the   horsepower.    This will apply to both stationary and traction engines.    Some,  progress  is  being made also  in  recommendations for standard ignition?  apparatus.

New Cure For Warts |  Dr. Felix" SzQAtagh of Budapest recommends a.new and simple method  of treating warts. It consists in covering the ,,wart and the surrounding  skin, to the width of one centimeter  with ordinary .caoutchouc plaster and  leaving it so covered for weeks���������even,  if necessary,,, for two or three months.  Whenever tfie "plaster becomes loose  it must be removed and replaced by  a new piece. 'As a rule, the plaster is  to be" changed once in three or four  days.      '.*-������������������   -"'.-.,  Any adherent resident of the caoutchouc is to be removed with ether or  gasoline,. care being taken that the  wart or the surrounding skin shall not  be rubbed energetically, because irritation of the skin te.not conducive to  the disappearance 'of the wart. Doctor  SzontagU says that he cannot explain  the action of this simple method, and  how it produces such excellent results  from the cosmetic point of view, but  it is certainly efficient. Perhaps the  caouchouc contains some substance  which softens the wart and causes  atrophy.���������Lancet.  /  Its Virtue Cannot be Described.���������  No one can explain the subtle power  that Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil possesses. The originator was himself  surprised by the wonderful qualities  that his compound possessed.
