Sept. 13, 1914  Deab. Fbiend Walter  I suppose you are wondering if I am  dead���������I have been aw������y a long tisnf*  for me, but by the. look of things it  will be several days before I get back  to Erickson. 1  I have been here two weeks' and to--  day is the 'first day we have had a  minute to ourselves. It is drill from  half-past five till half-past eleven then  swallow your dinner and hike to tho  rifle range or a sham battleunriai dark.  Last week we eat. our supper every  night by candle light, but I would not  miss it for any money. <.  Well, Walter, you would laugh till  you cracked to see the performance of  some of the fellows in our regiment.  Fellows who have been^jyamberjacks,  or railroad stiffs all their lives try to  march. They will get an order, right  iucline or left incline, and each ono  will strike off for himself, and.it takes  tho officer ten minutes' to get thero  lined up again. But they.have picked  the worst out of each company now  and got them in what theycall tho  awkward squad, and we are getting  along pretty well.  By the way, I have not told you  what outfit I am witb. I was driving  an ice wagon, in Edmonton all summer.  I had a good steady .job the year round  but when they 'called for volunteei-s 1  thought it toil, gbod-a- juhawse to seo  the world to -fiiss/so-t joined the-lOlst  T-tegiment-and-here I am,along ^ith  1000 others "from Edmonton?'*.  It seems to be thcgeneral impression '  that this is our last Sunday in camp,  but you cannot tell a thing aboutwliat  you hear. Poople outside seem to  know more about what is going on in  here than wo do. All We'know is what  is going on uv our own regiment, but  oue thing is sure, the papers won't be  stating when we are going as.they did  with the Princess Pat Regiment"; that  is why they wore stopped. ' Col. Sam  Hughes was out yesterday and looked  the whole camp overi? Each regiment  paraded?'in front of .him, ,,We were,  called out* to ftro drill at 10 o'clock last  night (ind our colonel jtold us he was  very much, pleased with our work and  if wo kept on wo would go tothe front  with tlio first contingent.  Well, Walter, I will bo back to see  yoii as soon as; this performance is  ovor. I suppose things are pretty  quiet in B.C., the same as every whore  else. I-saw Dalt." Johnson in Edmonton once this summer. I was in a  hurry so did not have time to talk to  him; ho said he Would be back in a  wook but I did not soo him again.

B������ a  I  r  JESSIE   REMEMBERED  And the Worst of it Was That She Insisted on Going Into Particulars  Mrs. Goby had been iv. her new.  house a mouth-when she received a  call from Mrs. Toby. Mrs. Toby was  accompanied by her five-year-old  daughter, Jessie.  '"What a beautiful house you have,  Mrs. Goby!" said Mrs. Toby.  "Isn't it nice?"  *'lt is indeed,'' replied Mrs. Toby.  "And? do you know, 1 intended calling  on you a fortnight ago, but have been  so busy."  "Oh, mamma," chimed ia.' little Jessie, "you did come������������������"  "How dare you talk like that? Speak  when you're spoken to," interrupted  .Mrs. Toby, coloring up.  Tears welled into the child's eyes,  and Mrs. Toby sympathetically said:  ������������������There, don't cry, little dear. You  must have bet-i_ mistaken.*'  "1 wasn't," blurted out Jessie.  ��������� Mamma knocked ever so inauy times  aud then said to me: "Come on. I suppose we shall have to go to the expense of getting tea in  town."  The silence that followed was frigid.  ���������London Telegraph.  Hands That Make Beauty  The father of Saint Gaudens, the  sculptor, was a bootmaker and put  the same enthusiasm into making a  good boot that his son put into model  ing statues. Millions are. spent on  paintings and sculptures, but just as  many millions are spent ou oilier productions of the human hand and biain  They may not be classed as works of  art.'yet they are the beautiful handicraft of men and women. The pro  ���������'nets of the cabinet makers of the  eighteenth century, the weaving of  the Hindu iUF-n and women since the  days of the Arabian Nights, the  laces and tapestries worked by peasant sirls. nuns or queens, the creations  of the potter, the bras sm.hi ger, the  ironmonger, the printer and the bookbinder were wrought by joyful workers, and millionaires compete with  kings to possess them.���������Boston Globe.  A Coal Mine One Hundred Years Ago  Up in Nova Scotia, 100 years ago,  ther settlers d/o.vjtd a pioneer shaft  with ?the aid of a pick and shovel and  dug out enough coal to heat their little dwellings and to cook their food.  Today those same mines, which- then  produced twenty or thirty tons a year,  are sending about 300,000 tons to mar- \  ket every twelve months. The pick  and shovel and the hand-lowered bucket have been replaced by --the air  drill, giant powder and steam ele:  vators, which drop 1,500 feet in to the  bowels of the earth.  By their primitive means the settlers never reach a level below 120  feet. There was not much need of car-1  Tying the shafts uny further, because  coal was little used for anything hut  heat; iu fact, there was no need for  coal anywhere except where wood was  scarce..

CANADA'S BANKING SYSTfcM  SHDWS   UP   WEL__   IN   CRISfi  Profane Dancing  HarrYet Beecher Stowe records that  in her girlhood she and her friends  used to fiance a jig entitled "Go to the  Devil and Shake Yourself." This dance  must have enjoyed a long spell of popularity. The first Duke of Buckingham and Candos was indignant when,  deigning to attend an assembly ball  at Airesiord, his request for a dance,  addressed to a local rector's wife, met  with the reply, "Go to the Devil and  Shake Yourself!" He complained to  the rector, and it then transpired that  the lady, who was somewhat deaf,  thought'his grace,had asked her what  dance was then being played. This  incident occurred in 1795, aad twenty-  years later Crabhe, in his "Tales."  animadverts on a bookseller for stocking the music of a dance with such a  profane  title.���������Manchester  Courier.  "Ma. better lock up the bathroom  and get out the old wooden tubs."  "Why, pa���������"  "And hide tlie phonograph and  those $7 records.

How Finger Prints Are Taken  There would seem to he an unfailing  method of identifying every individual man, and that is by his fingerprints. No two people, it is said, ever  have exactly the same markings, aud  at Scotland Yard the police keep a  large Hie of finger-print impressions,  and cau turn up any one of them in  a moment or two if they want to  identify a prisoner. The method of  taking these impressions is very  simple, and any boy or girl cun take  tinger-pritrts from his or her own lingers, or from friends aud relatives.  Take a tube of moist sepia paint, and  squeeze a: drop on to a plate or saucer.  Then add a drop of water, and after  mixing the sepia and water into a  paste, press the finger upon it, turning the finger half over, so as to ink  the whole of the front of it. Then  press the finger in the same wayjona  sheet of clean paper, and when it is  removed the impression will be there.  Government Behind the Banks In Ef-  fect've Preparations to Meet All  *       Demands  The financial strain of threatened  and actual war, which has been so severely felt in other countries, is being  admirably met in Canada  .

Canadian Bankers'  Association, tho whole situation * was  carefully considered, and effective arrangements made to meet any unusual  demands on tho Canadian currency  and banking system.

Juniper Wood to Replace Cedar*  After a long series of experiments  conducted with the co-operation of  four large manufacturers, the forest  service of the department of agriculture has reached the decision that the  juniper is the most available substitute for red cedar foi* use in pencil  making. In pursuance of tbis, arrangements are now being made, hy  some of the largest companies, for  lumber rights in thg juniper lands in  New Mexico and other places. The  present output of pencils in this country amounts to 1,000,000 daily, while  it requires 7,000,000 cubic feet of wood  a year to allow for. this production.  The forest service and the manufacturers have been worried for. some  time over the lumber situation, as  the supply of cedar is diminishing  rapidly. Hard woods could he used  hut for the fact that few pencil users  ever carry sharp.knives..  How Flowers Are Fertilized  In order that fruit may come on our  fruit trees and bushes, it is necessary  that the blossoms be fertilized, and  this is carried out either by insects,  such as bees, flying to one flower, getting dusted with the pollen, and then  .lying to another, where tho pollen is  rubbed off, or by the wind, w-hich  blows the pollen from one blossom  to another, or blows the various flowers together. In greenhouses, however, where some of the choicest  fruits, such as peaches, are grown,  'this natural fertilization is impossible;  there are probably neither bees nor  wind under the glass. In order that  the fertilization may he affected, the  gardener takes either a camelhair  brush, or, for the blossoms that are  but of each reach, a rabbit's fluffy tail  '-'allest Flagpole and Largest Flag  Tlie tallest single-piece wooden flagpole ever erected lias heen placed in  the Panama-Pacific exposition grounds  at San Francisco. It is trimmed in the  shape of a hexagon, from tlie trunk of  a Douglas fir tree, 240 feet ln height,  cut in. Oregon. The polo is 4 feet in  diameter at the base, IB" inches at the  top, and weighs 35 tous. When erected  lt was imbedded in a reinforced concrete foundation, and anchored solidly. After the cement had set, .all of  the guy cables were removed, leaving  tlie great shaft without a hraSing otlier  than its base. Three large derricks  were used in lifting it into place. A  spiked hall, weighing 620 pounds, and  measuring 10 feet over all, was placed  at the apex. When the exposition is  opened the pole will fly a 46-foot  American flag. .  This exposition flag, however, is almost minute compared with the flag,  150 feet long and 75 feet wide, which  headed a procession of nearly 5,000  persons at the flag day exercises at  St. Louis. It was borne by 250 men  and boys through the principal streets  of the. city. In order to keep the flag  from dragging as it was being carried,  boy scouts took their places beneath  the banner and supported its weight  on props. At Jefferson Memorial the  flag was hoisted, more than covering  thy east half of the north side of the  building. It has been suggested that  this flag be sent to San Francisco to  be, hoisted on the exposition flagstaff  on "Missouri*Day."  HF  Carried Black Bear 10 Miles  Carrying a black bear which had  been caught in his trap ten miles up  the. Jordan river, J. H. S.

The seahorse watches a tiny shrimp until  this comes near its mouth; then, with  a sudden darting motion, accompanied by a distinct click, it expands tlie  mo^th-tube, placing it over the shrimp,  which is quickly drawn it on the current of the water produced by the  suction.  "No other fish," writes Miss Anna  B. Gallup, in tha Museum News, "has.  the strange prehensile tail, but for the  sea-horse this organ seems to be nee-  ���������essary most of the time. When the  aquarium, "does not contain any weeds  or other objects for the sea-horse to  grasp, two or more animals will lock  their tails, and swim about as 'though  at play.  "The male fish takes all the care of  the young. The femalo puts the cggi  into his pouch, or pocket, situated noar  the base of the tail. Here the eggs  hatch and tlio young develop until able  to take care of themselves, when the  male expels them from the pouch."

Trapping a Coyote  . The coyote is one of the sliest an<f  hardest-of"all:fur bearing animals to  trap. He delights in ?Oigging.up traps, '  springing them, eating the bait and  otherwise disturbing the- set without  getting caught. His sense of-smell is  very acute.

"Master  Humphrey's Clock"  Thero has just come into the market the famous old relic which gave  Charles Dickens the title of his story,  "Master Humphrey's Clock."  It is a grandfather clock, Inscribed  with the name ot the maker, William  Humphreys of Barnard Castle, and  the date, 1829, with a dial of brass  and slivered metal, in a tall case of  Dutch lacquer, with architectural top.  William Humphreys waa tho son ot  Thomas Humphreys, a watchmaker of  Barnard Castle, whose shop was opposite the King's Head Inn, whero  Dlckena spent six weeks in 181.7 while  studying tho Dothoby's portion of  "Nicholas Nicklehy."  ���������tho clock remained ln possession of  Its maker until his death, when it  wus acquired by the father of thu present owner.

An impression prevails that great  quantities of oil are required to calm  the sea, but Prof. Ray Lankester of  England suggest^ that a pint of oil  an hour will secure. a zone of calm  water around a ship sufficient for the  safe launching of small boats. According to this authority, nine "ints  of oil are sufficient to calm a square  mile of water, and, incredible as it  may appear, one drop will calm seven  square feet. The oil spreads out over  the surface of the sea in a film which  has the almost unimaginable thickness of two-millionths of a millimeter,  yet it holds in leash the mighty power  of the ocean. When this film of oil  spreads over the surface, the heaping-  up action of the water, which results  in the formation first of ripples and  then of waves, cannot take place. The  thinner the film the greater is its effect in pulling down the crests.of the  waves ;.nd making a lower wave line,  free froni break.  That all leadincr nations are prepares  ing to make the use of oil at sea compulsory is indicated by the London  Board of trade's statutory rules and  orders regarding life-saving appliances  on vessels? The rules now provide  that, in all classes of foreign-going  snips, lifeboats shall be equipped with  one gallon of oil, and a vessel of approved pattern for distributing it in  rough weather. The calming action of  Oil on the'water has been mathematically demonstrated.' -  In nearly every"Instance where oil  is used on the great lakes the captains let it drip through the waste  pipes both forward and aft. Some of  the masters claim excellent results  from dripping oil through a snort piece  of deck hose run through the hawser  pipes or chocks, forward. Many lake  men*think that these two methods are  as efficient as the use of oil bags, and  are nulch easier to put into operation.  ���������Harold Waters, in Leslie's.  Finding  a .Stolen  Child  Four years ago little Rcsa Sissoa  was stolen from her home in-Winfield,  La., and all efforts to find her were  Unavailing. Recently Catherine Winters of Newcastle, Ind., disappeared  and the newspapers printed her picture? - The police of Middleport, O.,  thought they recognized her in a little  girl who was there in company with  a stranger claiming to be her father.  They arrested the man and telegraphed Mr. Winters, who found that the  girl was not his daughter. The newspapers had also printed the picture of  the Middleport waif, and it was recognized in Winfield as that of Rosa  Sisson, *.ven though' i'our_years nan  greatly changed, her appearance- Then  the police learned that the man under arrest was Joe Davis, a burglar  and a safe-blower-who had an idea  that h*j would be less liable to suspicion if he travelled with a child,  and had p.'eked up little Rosa, whom  he passed off as his daughter. Rosa  was sent back to lier home in charge  of the mayor of Middleport, at the exr-  pertse of some charitable citizens of  that place.

The Winter's Entertainment  -f _V- J*  - ��������� t������.  15  a he initial dance of the  season of the Creston Ish Ka Bibee  Club,   which was  held on Friday  night, has brought to the fore  the  question oi What are we going to do  for the young  people, particularly,  as well as those of not-too-snature-  age, tokeep from becoming dormant during   the   fall 'and  winter  evenings:  --^tttttfer good-looking suggestion  has been  made to   The  Review  that the young men  get together,  form a club and  hold a dance at  least once a month.  The older people on their part  might arrange to give the younger  set a musical and literary night, an  evening of games of various kinds  to suit the crowd, or a few hours of  sociability of any and all kinds, at  some of the various homes in town  or country, equally as often ; or by  a little team work, the hall could  easily be financed.  This would mean that two nights  each month, at least, there would  be something doing. Between  times there would be something to  talk about and something to look  forward to. The functions could  be made 12 o'clock affairs in case of  the dances, particularly if they  came oftener than once a month,  and say -11 or 11.30 for the social  evenings, with the lunch omitted  or included as thought best.  The social evenings, we believe,  it is the duty of the older people to  take in hand and thus show they  have some interest in the young  people in the community.  This winter, at least, forget the  cliques and petty jealousies, and let  us all live as one large family. But  in the meantime call a meeting.  Already a few have been favorably  talking about this scheme, but  immediate action, not words, is  what is required.

They went at onoe,  unquestioning. They knew their  duty and obeyed it without any  hesitation. Shall it be said that  we failed in ours.

Russia's Awakening  -.. ��������� ��������� '?���������?.��������� ;���������''  From Fernie comes the report  that in the evenings, when the  weather is fine, a group of patriotio  Russians maybe seen drilling on  coke oven fiats. They use sticks  for arms and are wild to get into  the fight, having offered their services in every _ quarter where they  thought there was hope of acceptance. ,  In ordinary times one has always  had the impression . that Russia  richly deserved all the ill-feeling  against her that was abroad in the  land. In times of peace some Russian subjects were always berating  the Czar.  But in times of war how suddenly, things look up, as per this Fernie  incident. The Jews, Poles, et al  haven't a thing to regret, but under  the circumstances show them the  enemy as soon as possible; they  want to get at him.  The crisis has brought Russian  officialism face to face with the  glaring fact that if Russia would  win in such a titanic conflict she  must rally to her cause the masses  of the people, of whose interests in  tho past sho has been neglectful.  ' Russia has learned the lesson that  foroiblo possession of a sullen alien  people, never more than outwardly  loyal, and that only when and be-  oause they must be, is always uncertain, and is subject at any  momont to upheaval.

Elisea Reclus, the  French scientist, instances astonishing examples among savage tribes in  South America and in Africa of primi-  Itive humanity and the animals making  common cause in their life and labors  together.  The llama, which carries enormous  burdens over the Andes, would lie  down in wrath and refuse to rise  should his master strike or abuse him;  lit is only caresses and encouragement  that lead him over impossible deserts  and roadways.  The horse of the Bedouin Arab  sleeps in his tent with nis children.  In civilization men train horses by hit,  whip and spur and then complain that  they have no brains, initiative or real  affection. To feed the better upon  them men make of sheep and cattle  artificial creatures, incapable of self-  support in the freedom  of nature.  Heclus insists that in. many ro.-?j<fCt.a  the domestication of animals, us we  practice it today, produces veritable  moral back-sliding, for far from having improved them we hnvo deformed, degraded and corrupted them.���������  Boston  ������ranscript.

The Oldest Voter  Perhaps the oldest voter to exercise  his franchise in the recent Ontario  elections was Levi Thompson of Rob*  lin, aged 96 years. He said he hoped  his would be the casting vote to banish the bars of Ontario. His son John,  his Grandson Ira and his great-grandson, Ralph, also voted \t the same  subdivision.  A. F.

A commercial traveller had taken  a large order up in Aberdeen and endeavored to impress upon the canny  Scottish manager who had given the  order a box of Havana cigars.  "Nraw," he replied. "Don't try to  bribe a man. I cudna tak them���������and  I am a member of the kirk!"  "But will you not accept them as a  present?"  "I couldna," said the, Scot.  "Well, then," said the traveller,  "suppose I sell you the cigars for a  merely nominal sum���������say, sixpence?"  "Weel, in that case," replied the  Scot, "since yon press me, and not liking tae refuse an offer well meant, I  think I'll he taking twa boxes."

Now It is weird and visionary,  but Sir Oliver, Lodge, who is in the  top rank of living scientists, thinks  it-not improbable and is now calling  on his fellows to begin * wireless  etudles with this purpose? in mind.  The inore there is discovered alioiit  the way wireless telegraphy works  the more it is evident that weather  '-and?wireless waves are tangled with  each other?  Almost every one knows that wireless telegraphy works better by night  than by day and has peculiar jumps  of efficiency at sunset. A wireless  operator.on shipboard in the far north  found that during a display of the  aurora borealis tlie northern lights  were widely disturbed when he sent  out wireless signals from his ship.  The growing theory concerning the  way wireless waves "follow the curve  of the earth is in simple language that  the upper layers of the air form a sort  of magnetic cushion against which  the wireless waves can bound along.  Sir Oliver wishes to have experiments  made by discharging vsry powerful  wireless waves from kites under all  kinds of weather conditions in order  to "ascertain wliether the waves will  under any conditions make clouds  condense into rain or prevent them  from condensing.  It is not to be expected, of course,  that rain could be obtained from a dry'  shy, but normal conditions of th'e air  would leave much opportunity for  weather control if the theory should  prove workable.  The total eclipse of the sun on a  path from Greelanci to Persia  is to be made the occasion for  elaborate wireless experiments. Wireless signals will be sent out from within the path of shadow and across the  shadow, and the effect of .'the shadow  on' these signals should give more  clews', to the whole problem.���������--Saturday  Evening Post.

A Haven of Shelter for the Deservlnj  Man Who Desires Work, but Who  Can Not Afford to Pay For Food,  is Provided by Chicago Man.  "A Ladder for the Down and Out."  That is what' ������ building in Chicago  is often called, although it is actually  named the Rufus F. Dawes Hotel, after the man to whom its erection is  due. ^It was founded to carry out the  desire of Mr. Dawes' deceased son to  give men who are "down and out" a  lift. He had spoken of the need of  an institution that should give a helping hand to the man who earnestly desired work, but who could not afford  to pay for food and shelter while seeking it.   ^  The building is* the father's'���������'memorial to his son. It cost $100,000 to  build it, and on the opening night  three hundred down-and-outs straggled in from a snowstorm that raged  outside. Some of them sat down be:  fore the broad open fireplace in the  spacious lobby, which soon assumed  the appearance of a clubroom. Others,  who had a few coppers, bought strings  of tickets, which entitled the holder  to soup at two cents, coffee, at the  same price, rolls and doughnuts at a  cent each, and pie for three cents. "  The men were desired to use ?. the  bathrooms, and then each man received a night shirt and a pair of  bath slippers, and was shown to his  sleeping quarters.  Tbe charge for beds is five cents.  They are in dormitorie s. that are  equipped 7 with an exhaust fan system of ventilation. Each bed has two  sl.eets, a pillow slip and a blanket.  For those who .prefer to 'be alone,  there are ninety-five "cubicle" rooms  on the third floor. These rooms are  rented for ten centsrajaight.  The hotel is not intended to provide permanent lodgings. Men are  accommodated while they are looking for work, but the professional  idler will not be welcome. The managers of the hotel endeavor, without  charge, to find employment for men  in hard luck. The .institution is not  endowed, and is hot expected to be  self-supporting?

Mr.  S. Ramanujan by name���������whose  work, although he is only twenty-six  years of age, has excited tbe admlra-  atlon of all mathematical experts. Perhaps the . most extraordinary thing  about Ramanujan is that, as a mathematician, he is quite untaught. Until a  year ago he was a clerk ln the employment of the Port Trust ol Madras.  But in spite of this, he has, to  quote Mr. Hardy, . Fellow of Trinity,  who has taken a great interest in  Ramanujan, "discovered for himself  a great number of things which the  leading mathematicians of the last  hundred years had added to the knowledge of schoolmen, although he was  quite ignorant of their work and accomplishments. Indeed, his mathe-  mathical education is rather a mystery, and the first I knew of him was  about fifteen months ago when he?  wrote to me explaining who he was,  and sent a large number bf remarkable"  mathematical theorems? which- he had  proved." ���������*"  This is the second mathematical  genius produced by India in the last  three years.
