Mr Burns, the efficient mechanic,  who has  been  placing the steam  r  heating apparatus in the Hospital,  has nearly completed hi3 labours,  and expects to turn steam through  the pipes on Friday. The plant is"  of   the   most    modern   type,   the  boiler   being   a Gurney    u Bright  Idea," of 1000 feet capacity-    It is  fitted with every improvement, the  means provided   for   cleaning   fire  box, v\a>er tubing, and for automatic  regulation   of   draught,   being  simplicity itself, together with effectiveness.     A  3-lnch  main  carries  the steam to the old building, where-  large radiators are judiciously placed    to    ensure   uniform    heating.  Separate mains, 2^ inches, lead to  the new ward and .operating-rooms  respectively,  the  waid being  provided   with three  huge   radiators,  sufficient  to. heat the room tu  far  above ordinary requirements.   All  mains are covered with thick ���������asb.-.-s-  tos- covering,  as will the boiler be  when in running order.     Mr Cook-;  .son has   certain iy . put   first-class  'material in   his contract,  and   Mr  Burns has done his part by. installing   the   plant    in   workmanlike  maniVer, for the most part in Icon-  fined knd  awkward   spaces.     Tbe  mains lor  the  separate  buildings  mav be t^ed singl^ogail at onetime  as desired..

Only Accurate Way Ia Said to Be *hy  Girth. Measurement.  "The only accurate way to estimate  a tree's age is by the measurement of  Its girth," said a botanist. v "The counting of the rings of otogenous trees can  only be applied to 'such as are cut  down in their prime, for these trees,  when they begin to die, cease to add  their yearly rings. Girth measurement  is the only safe guide to the age ,of  trees. < , '  "Hence all over the world botanists  have now for some years been measuring trees' of known and unknown  age, compiling thus a volume of statistics that will become more and more  valuable'as it increases in size.  ' "The yew is the longest lived of  trees. Three feet a century, our statistics show, la its normal growth. According to this rule; the Fortingal yew  of Scotland, which was fifty-six feet in  girth ^in 1769, must have lived over  1,800 years. The Tisbury yew, in Dorsetshire, is thirty-seven feet in girth  and should be, therefore, 1,200 years  old.     - _; ���������>������������������,,< ."���������   .'.  \  "There is a table of the age of oaks  that differs from this. It is not a very  satisfactory table, but it was compiled  from trees of-known age, and _aere-  fore it is statistically very valuable.  According to it', a'40-year-old oak had  a circumference ofs 8 feet;'-83 years,  12 feet; 100" years, 18 feet; 200 years.'  20 feet; 250 years, 27 feet; 300 years,  33 feet."

A1' little while ago while turning over  * some mementos of many years spent  In the'Pacific islands I came across a  Hi  , 6mall  circle of -fine   cane  about two  " inches in diameter.   From the side toward the center a delicate network of  the'fibers of some plant-was construct-  ,   ed, leaving a small,hole 'in' the center  * large enough for, ,say, a bee to crawl  .through.    The   article    weighed    less  ''    than a quarter of an ounce; yet, small  and harmless as it appeared, it is not  bo ,veryj many years ago that, it and  others like (it were objects of deadly.  'terror to the natives of many of the'  'Pacific  islands,  particularly   those,of  Manahiki (Humphrey island), for the  simple looking thing was a "soul catch-.  '     er"���������that is, a destroyer of human life. '  Manahiki 'is .one, of . a group of, low,  .lying atoll islands to the north-northwest of Samoa, and its people,, today,,  are about the; besL educated 'of all the  Malayo-Polynesian people.  They elect a  i king and-parliament, have one of the  most beautifully*-adorned, churches in  ,p the'Pacific, islands, and nearly all the  ^ younger* members  of  the' community  'can, now. not only speak but read and  ,   write  English:" The island is���������for an  ,atolI���������unusually fertile* and the people  a fine,'"stalwart, handsome copper'colored race., The main industries are the  making of "copra" (dried.cocoanut) and  diving' for ..pearl shell. ,     .        .,   <,    <  ��������� "Soul catching"-'.in the heathen days,  . prior"to "1863, 'could be and was-prac-  , . ticedi by any one' who 'desired revenge  *or the life ���������of >an enemy!-  Indeed, al-  ' though ' the   people , were   nominally  Christians;, ip   18731 _ it   was   still   in  vogue, v .The modus operandi is  very  simple.'   Say that two .men, Rika and  Tetoro, quarrel:    Rika) accuses Tetoro  of'going" out into the lagoon "at. nighttime, lifting his (Rika's) flsb traps and  abstracting the." contents.   He'therefore  -'demands compensation.   Tetoro denies  the theft.    The relatives of both men  take sides, and the quarrel assumes,all  the.elements'of a feud'with bloodshed.  - It��������� may. bej that Tetoro is a  man J of  ,   means" or chiefly  rank  and .influence"  and treats his accuser with scorn./''  .'  "Very well," the 'injured'Rika cries.  ."If I cannot, get'justice from you'I'  shall snare your'soul, and you will die  > of a wasting sickness." " J  ^Tetoro, even if he is innocent, begins  to feel uneasy .at this threat and, while  vigorously -'denying   the   theft,  offersr  Rika a present of a pig to end the matter.    Rika's relatives at once clamor  not only, for their, original demands,  but for the"pig as well.   Possibly a free  '  fight  ensues,   and  Rika's   people  get  badly used, and threats of "soul snar-'  ing" are heard on all sides.  Then Rika's wife makes the snare for  Tetoro's soul. /Taking her mat out into  the village square or upon a well frequented road or path, she, suspends the  snare from, the branches of trees or  sticks placed in the ground in such a  position that she can closely watch the  orifice in th* center of the square.  Rika's friends, male and female, come  with her. They bring food and eat it  and throw fragments under the snare  to attract the flies,' with which the is-  . land Is infested. If but one fly crawls  through the hole Tetoro is a dead man,  unless he suddenly gives in and allows  himself to be bled, for not only do  Rika's people watch the snare, but his  own as well. No one of them would  dare to attempt to destroy the snare.  The death of the lnterferer by occult  power would certainly follow.  And so for hours and hours���������some-  .times- for days���������many pairs of eyes  watch the little circle of cane, and Tetoro and his friends are now ready to  yield, but feel that still more extortionate demands may be made. Then  at last a tly is seen to crawl through,  and a shout goes through the village.  "Ua hopo te lago! Ua hopo te lago!"  ("A fly has passed through.") Tetoro  hoars the cries and immediately imagines he feels ill. His wife and relatives  crowd about him and try to cheer him  up. butdiis face assumes a melancholy  look, ahd aSsthc time passes on he re-  . fuse?:,his food. Perhaps hr may confess'that ho .'.did "steal,-It ilea's fish and  trep.iblingly Offer to make full restitution if Rika-will catch.a fly'and make  it .go/.through, .the circle from the reverse side through which the first one  entered voluntarily. Usually, this is  done, and w-liat. might have become a  lasting family feud had Tetoro died of  "funk," through being bewitched, ends  up by the payment of so .much' property  to Rika, and a feast for which both  parties provide the-viands.���������Pall Mall  Gazette.

There is always a certain amount of  difficulty about choosing a hat to wear  with a 'demitoilet. When in doubt it'is  ever safe to adhere to the all black or  white picture hat, with its ostrich  plume or simple lace curtain.  '    j    ' <  A really good 'black straw hat looks  well on many occasions. The shade ,to  the face is nearly always becoming,  and such head gear never seems' to become rumpled or soiled.

Debutantes' gowns will not be so simple this year; as formerly. Take, for  instance, a ball gown which is being  made by a prominent dressmaker.

There is no doubt that we are following the fashion set by Paris by making this a white season.  There has been a practical reason for  the wearing of so much white this  year.

There was >i time once when the  common nettle was not the usually despised weed it is now. People did not  root it out of existence or shun it as a  nuisance, but cultivated it for use as  food, for clothing and for paper manufacture.  It certainly does not look inviting.as  a food, and yet during the Irish famine  hundreds of poor people existed entirely on it, cooking the young plant as  greens. There was a method of blanching it by "earthing up," as is now used  for sea kale.  'Animals, while refusing to touch the  growing nettle, devour it,eagerly when  made into bay, and in Russia,-Sweden  and Holland it is. mowed several times  a year for fodder. ,.'"-.  The common name given to the nettle  in. some languages means "that, with  which one sews." for the liber was  used as a thread several centuries ago.  In Kamchatka the natives use the  thread for fishing lines and cordage. In  France it is used for paper. In Hindustan and China it is woven into grass  cloth, and the Scotch havo prepared, j  spun and woven it into as good linen  as the flax makes. y. ���������  ;The.

" Among the unpaid gardeners who  keep certain parts of our landscape  trim must be reckoned the humble rabbit. "Rabbit turf" on the juniper  studded slopes of the Surrey hills, or  the verges of the Devonshire cliffs, is  almost the finest sward existing. The  constant nibbling of the rabbits, which  work steadily outward from their burrows, cropping the grass again and  again closer than does1 a mowing machine, dwarfs not only the grass, but  all other plants and herbs. They also  nibble the furze bushes and bunches of  heather into cushions and blunt cones  and, give to the ground which they frequent the appearance of being covered  with artificially rounded and trimmed  shrubs and bushes so characteristic of  the sides of downs, an effect which the  numbers of ant hills aid in producing.  On some parts of the coast,/especially  In the sand hills which protect low  lands from the sea. rabbits occasionally  threaten to produce very much more  serious changes in tho landscape than  this. They burrow into the sand hills  and weaken them until they are no  longer the firm barrier that they were.

Couktnby,  Traffio Manager, <  M���������  THE ��������� EPISODE  IN ROOM 222  By ARNOLD BENNETT  Copyright, 1903,  by T. C McClure   '  The" date was thc 5th of November.  . It was a Friday, and yet there are people who affect to believe that Friday is  not a day singled out from its six companions for mystery, - strangeness and  disaster. The number of the room was  222.   Thc hotel I shall call by the name  , 'of the Grand Junction Terminus hotel.  The   Grand   Junction is   full   every  night in the week except Friday, Saturday and Sunday.   Every commercial  traveler knows that, except on these,  ��������� nights,, if he wishes to secure a room  he must write or telegraph for it in ad-  '   .,vance. , And there are 400 bedrooms.    '  It was somewhat late in the evening  when I arrived in L .   On the spur  of the, moment I decided to stay atr the  Grand Junction if there was space for  "    me.   It is thus that fate works.  I walked into the hall, followed by a-  platform  porter' with  my   bag.    The  place seemed just as usual, the perfection of the commonplace, the business-like and the unspiritual.  "Have you a room?" I asked the  young lady in,black whose yellow hair  6hone gayly at the oflicowindow under  the electric,light'  She glanced at the ledgers in the impassive and detached manner which hotel syqung ladies with yellow hair inva-  ������ 'riably affect and ejaculated:   ,  "No. 221." ' '      .  ''Pity' you couldn't make it all twos,"  ,   I ventured, with timid jocularity.  How  could I guess the import of what I was  1   saying? ���������    '        .  '  She smiled very slightly with a distant condescension.    "Name?"1 she demanded. y '       ������  "Edge."               ,  In1 another moment I was in the ele-  ���������, ' <���������    ,  - vator.  ' No. 221 was the last'door but one at  the ,end of the eastern corridor of the  fourth floor.   It.proved to be a double  -bedded room,  large, exquisitely ugly,  " ������ but perfectly appointed in all matters  of comfort.   In short, it was characteristic of the hotel.    I" knew that every,  bedroom In that corridor presented ex-  *\ actly the' same aspect.   One, instinctive-  '' ly  felt the impossibility' of' anything  0 weird, anything bizarre, anything terrible,' entering the precincts of an abode  '   bo solid, cheerful, orderly and middle  class.  It will be well for me to relate all  that I did that evening. I went down  to. the billiard room and played a hun-  ' dred up with the marker. To show  that my nerves were at least as^steady  as usual that night I may mention that,  although the marker gave me fifty and'  beat me, I made a break of twenty odd  which won his generous approval. The  game concluded, I went Into fhe hall  and asked the porter if there were any  telegrams for me. There were not. I  noticed that the porter���������it was the night  porter, and he had just come on duty-  seemed to have a peculiarly honest and  ��������� attractive   face.     Wishing   him   good  '   night. I retired to bed.  At 3 o'clock I awoke, not with a  start, but rather gradually. I know it  was exactly 3 o'clock because thc striking of a notoriously noisy church clock  in. the neighborhood was the first thing  L I heard. But the clock had not awakened me. I felt sure that something  else, something far more sinister than a  church clock, had been tbe origin of disturbance.  I listened. Then I heard it again. It  was the sound of a groan in the next  room.  "Some one indisposed, either in body  or mind," I thought lightly, and I tried  to go to sleep again. But I could not  sleep. The groans continued and grew  more poignant, more fearsome. At last  I jumped out of bed and turned on the  light.  "That man, whoever ho Is, is dying,"  The idea, as it were, sprang at my  throat. "Only a man who saw Death  by his side and trembled before the apparition could groan like that."  I put on some clothes and wont in-  toy the corridor. It seemed to wtretch  away into illimitable distance, and far  off a solitary..electric'light'.glimmered.  My end was a haunt of gloomy shadows, except where the open door allowed the light from my bedroom to  illuminate the long, monotonous pattern of the carpet.  I proceeded to the.door next my own  ���������the door of No..222, and put niy oar  against the panel. The sound of groans  was now much move distinct and more  terrifying. I called. No answer.  "What's the matter?" I inquired. No  answer. Then I tried to open the door,  but it was fast. ���������  "Yes," I said to myself, "either he's  dying or he's committed a murder and  is feeling sorry for it. Imust fetch tha  night porter:" j  I was compelled to find my way |  along endless corridors- and down !  flights of stairs apparently inut:mora- '  ble. Here and there an electric light  sought with'its yellow eye to pierce  the gloom. At length I reached ��������� the  hall.  "There's a man either dying or very  ill in No. 222,"'I said to the night porter.  "Is that so, sir?" he replied.  '"Yes," I insisted/   "I think he's .dying.   Hadn't you better do something?".  "If you think he's dying, sir, I'll call  np the manager^ Mr. Thorn."  "Do," I said.  The manager slept on the first floor,'  and   he   soon<. appeared,   a   youngish^  man in a terrajcotta dressing sown. __������  ey*s full of sleep, yet alert and anxious to do fhis duty.    We all three con  tinued our progress to the fourth floor.  Arrived in front of No. 222, we listened  intently, but we could only hear a faint  occasional groan.   ,  "He's nearly 'dead," <I said. The  manager called aloud, but there was  no answer. ' Then he vainly tried to  open the door. The night porter departed'and'returned with a stout pair'  of steel tongs. With these and the natural ingenuity peculiar to hotel porters  he forced open the door, and we entered No. 222. ;  ���������   A stout, middle aged man lay on' the  bed f.ully  dressed  in  black.  r On  the  floor near the bed was a silk hat.    As  we approached the great body seemed  to flutter, and then it lay profoundly  and  terribly  still.    The  manager put  his hand on the man's head and held  the glass of his watch to,the man's  parted lips.  "He is dead," said the manager.;,  '"H'm!" I said.  ,' r  _  'Tin sorry you've r been put to' any  inconvenience," . said    the    manager,  "and I'm much obliged to you." .   >  .   The cold but polite tone* was a'request to me "to re-enter my own chamber and leave the corpse to the,manager and'the night porter.   I obeyed.  *        *        *        *        *        *    ���������   *  ' "What about that man?" I asked /the  hall porter .early the next, or. rather,  the same,' morning.    I had not slept a  wink since 3 o'clock, nor had I heard a  sound'In the corridor. '   *  '.'What man, sir?" the porter said.  "You  know,','  I  returned  rather angrily���������"the man who died in the night  -No. 222." ' c   ,     ���������  "I assure you, sir," heQsaid. "I haven't  the least notion what you mean."  Yet his  face seenied as honest and  open as ever.  I inquired at the office for the manager and after ,some' difficulty saw him  in his private office;  -   ��������� '  .  VI thought I'd just  see about that  WHAT IS  WORN.  Smart   and   Simple    _ovrn������ ��������� Dainty  * Ha���������d Painted  Muslin*.  A very smart yet simple French  frock is in a periwinkle blue cloth  edged"1" with a cream lace application  outlined with black and white chenille braid. This is made'in the form  of a' tunic fastening with early Victorian buttons and finished with a  black panne belt, with straps of em  COLORS AND FABRICS.  Cmpe*   and   Crepolines   Are   Smart.  Pale Bine Is Very Popxilar.  The fiat crowned hats have made the  low coiffures more fashionable and the  sides are dressed very widely whether  arranged in pompadour fashion or in  waved full bands. ,   " .  Crepoline and crape effects are very  popular and there are many lovely effects in gray,' putty and fawTn which  make up beautifully with lace ribbon  and fe'athcrsiitching. The sack bolero,  much plaited'and trimmed with lace  and silken tassels, is very effective.  The vest of white silk should have a  transparent yoke  and a,deep  frill of  MUSLIN  AND LACE GOWNS.  Pale   Green.  Muslin.   I*   Very   Smart.  Elaborate Style*.  Muslin and lace gowns really deserve  a page' to themselves. A pale green  muslin has bunches of orange pomegranates on it and is a complete mass  of tuckings.' shirrings, etc' A very  charming addition is a pelerine' of  hand worked lawn bordered by green  silk fringe. The , waist of this frock  is enriched by a band of orange panne,  which, altnough-it does not sound-like  ,.Vi  man," I began. .  "What man?" the manager asked exactly as the'porter had asked.   i<  "Look here,'; I said, as I was now  really annoyed; "it's all very well giving instructions to the hall porter, and  I can quite understand you want the  thing kept as quiet as possible, but 1  saw the corpse and was of some assistance to you"���������  "Excuse me," said the manager. "Either you or I must be completely mad."  .' "Do you mean to say," I remarked,  with frosty sarcasm, "that yoji didn't  enter room 222 with me this morning  at 3 a. m. and find a dead man there?"  "I mean to say just that," he answered.  "Well"��������� I got no furtfcer. I paid my  bill and left, but before leaving I went  and carefully examined the door of No.  222. The door plainly showed marks  of some iron instrument.  '.'Here," I said to the porter as'l departed. "Accept this half crown from  me.  I admire you."  *        *        ���������        *   ���������     ���������        ���������        ���������  In the course of my subsequent travels I once more found myself late one  night at the Grand Junction Terminus  hotel.  "Mr. Edge," said the night porter,  "I've been looking out for you for  weeks and weeks. The manager's compliments, and he would like to see you  in his room."  Again I saw the youngish, alert man-'  ager.  "Mr. Edge," he began at once, "it is  probable that I owe you an apology.  At any rate I think it right to inform  you that on tho night of the C>lh of No-  vcmber, the year before last, exactly  twelve months before your last visit  here, a stout man died in room No. 222  at 3 a. m. 1 forgot the circumstance  when you last came to see me in this  room.''  "It seems queer," I said coldly, "that  you should have forgotten such a circumstance." ' '.���������������������������,.'  "The fact is." he replied, "I was not  the manager at that time. My predecessor died two days after the discovery of tbo corpse, in room 222."  "And the night porter���������is he, too, a  new man?"  "Yes." said the manager.."The porter  who, with the late manager, found the  corpse in room 222 is now in Eat  well Lunatic asylum."  "Then you think." I said, "that I was  tho victim of a hallucination ' on my  previous visit here?" ,  "On these matters." said the manager, "I prefer to think nothing."  CHIT-ON HAT.'  broidery, decorating ,the , full, rather  round skirt, which barely touches the  ground-all around.  , In direct contrast to a costume of  this sort there are some glorious hand  painted . muslins _ on a silky ground.,  \ Pompadour designs are of course the  favorites, and their beauty is much enhanced by the addition .of. little ��������� coats,  'either In' very fine old fashioned lawn  or some real lace.

JUDIC CHOLLET.  FASHION  IN  SPEECH.  Some, Word*- Go  Ont'ot   Favor  and  'Vj^'WIn Tlieir Way  Back.  1 ��������� The history of the race is written in  the> words it uses. As,we grow and  change, so our language grows0 and  changes. Mr. Leon Mead in his book  "Word Coinage" points out that some  words go out of fashion and come  back, like tan^shoes and wide rimmed  hats, although the change in words ia  much slower than the change in dress.  In Spenser's day ^forestall," "fain,"  "scathes," '.'askance," "embellish" and  "dapper" were not considered good, but  they have since gained .respectability  and won their place in the language.  The seventeenth century regarded as  obsolete a number, of Chaucer's words  ���������"transcend," . ,"bland," "sphere,"  "blithe," "franchise," "carve," "anthem." One by one these words came  to life again and walk the pages of our  literature in full vitality. Other words  now indispensable which the seventeenth century rejected are "plumage,"  "tapestry," "tissue," "ledge," "trenchant," "resource," "villainy," "thrill,"  "yelp," "dovetail."  Bacon did not have the good word  "encyclopedia," but used the heavy  equivalent, "circle learning."  Fulkc, the sixteenth century authorv  who wrote "A Defense of the Sincere  and True Translations of the Ilolie  Scriptures Into the English Tong," did  not admit '"neophyte," "homicide,"  "scandal," "destruction," "tunic," "despicable," "rational." Another book  published in IGuS puts tho stamp of  censure on "oblique," "radiant," "adoption," "caress," "amphibious," '-'horizontal," "concede," "articulate," "destination," "compensate," "complicated"  and -"adventitious."  It is hard to trace tho history of a  fashion' in'.words; .Seldom.do we have  the precise record that Chesterfield furnishes us in a letter in ��������� which, he says  Svcearinfj to Excess.  A cricket club in the south of Scotland, which has evidently found that  tho use of lurid language doesn't add  to thc amenities of play, has passed  the following bylaw:  "Any member swearing to excess  may be expelled."  I have not heard whether the club  committee has yet arrived at a definition; of "moderate swearing." .The attempt to find one to meet all cases is  likaly,-.to result in language both.."pain-,  that he was present at the birth of the ful and free."  word "flirtation" on the lips of a beau-  lace., Touches of color can be introduced easily info such'neutral tinted'  gowns, which, are equally charming  worn with toques bV 'floral or big black  picture "hats.        ,'    ryy-'<   "-' ,l..'

The' following are some' curious superstitions that are still extant among  English speaking people:  If you kill frogs your cows will "go  dry." ������  Tickling a baby -will cause the child'  to stutter.  To thank a person for combing your  hair will bring bad luck.  To kill a ghost it must be shot "with  a bullet made of a silver coin.  To dream of unbroken eggs signifies  trouble to come; if the eggs are broken  the trouble is past '   -  If you  boast of  your  good health,  strike wood immediately with your fist  or you will become ill.  To dream of a live snake means  enemies at large, of" a dead snake  enemies dead or powerless.  To allow a child to look into a mirror before it is a month old will cause  it,to have trouble in teething.  A child will have a nature and disposition similar to those of the person  who first takes it out of doors.  Slim Dananai, c '  Do not buy slim bananas. They have  bceu picked green and kept till' they  turned yellow. They will always be  found sour and puckery, no matter  how yellow they may have become.  Aral������ie Insanity  Remedy.

It may be an easy matter  t*> .'fae'ermirinte (the v birds . in an  orchard or grain field, bu* it is an  extremely difficult one to control  the insect pe-ts.     It is certain, too,  1 thatithe value of our native spar-  rows.ah weed destroyers" is not appreciated. \V<ed seed forms an important item for the winter food of.  many of these,birds, aid it is irn-  po^sib^fe to estimate the. immense  y ,nilV)abjerE? of noxious weeds which  ,r"_re.ttrus annually destroyed.  ', If birdd are protected and encour-  aged to~ nest about the farm 'and  garden   they wil! do their share of  ���������destroying noxious insects and  .weeds,   and a  few  houis   spent in  .putting upv boxes for bluebirds,  martins and wrens will prove a good  investment.    Birds- are protected by  ;law in many states, but it remains  for the agsiculturists to see that the  .laws are faithfully observed."  Many birds are enumerated in the  . article and,in s-peaking of the crow  , he says:���������  CROW   A   EUG   EXTERMINATOR.  ������������������ .  In, his 'insect food, however, the  crow makes amends for sins in th<'  rest of his dietary. Predatory be< -  ties, May beetles, "dorbugs" or J ne  bugs, and others of the same fami'y  constitute tlie principal food during  spring and early sun mer, and are  fed to the <young in immense quantities. .Grasshoppers are rirtt taken  in May, but not in large numbers  until - August, when, as might be  expected, they form tlie leading  article of diet, showing that the  crow is. no exception to the general  idea that most, birds subsist to a  large exten- upon grasshoppers in  the month of August.    Man}' bugs,  ;-some y catte.rpillars, mostly cut-  vorms, and some" spiders are al>o  eaten���������-all of them either h;irmful  or neutral in their economic relations.    Of the insert, diet, Mr E.YV.  . Schwarz says:���������"The facts on the  whole,spe"<k 'iv������r\vheliuiiigly in fa-  . vor of the crow."
