It is said that the probabilities are strong that the Wei.  Col. Co. will, in the near future, use  electricity largely in place of steam  in the mines here. ���������   The Courtney  is specially adapted for producing  a steady pressure, there being two  streams flowing into the lake at the  head, one of which is nearly as large  as the Courtney, these with numerous smaller inflows, serve to keep a  good head of water the entire year,  even  at  the lowest stages  in  the  driest season.  Premier Dunsmuir has addressed  another letter to the people of B.C.  in which his former message, issued  in an open letter some two or three j eii;Jew;here  weeks ago, has been supplemented.  Premier Dunsmuir has defined  his  position   very   clearly   and   deals  principally   with    the   claims   of  railways in B.C.     As will be seen  by those   who  are  not biased personally and politically towards Mr  Dunsmuir his business transactions  with   the   Dunsmuir   Government  have been transacted in a fair and  straight-forward manner, and  his  practical     business-like     policy  should recommend  itself to those  who   have the true welfare of the  Province at heart, which should be  to labour for one common duty, the  advancement and interest of British  Columbia.

The Chronicle in an editorial on',  this dispatch says: " America- as a  whole, has.not shown herself friendly during our troubles in South  Africa, but this clear statement of  America's debt to Britain should  make an impression, even, on "those  classes who regarded us askance."

A,State ot clie System Tbat Calla For  , . Medical  Treatment.  What'may be called a minor degree of  neurasthenia   is   the   indefinite  condition  called  "nervousness,."    Sufferers from  it  are ���������'not incapacitated for business or social duties, nor are they serioubly ill, like  the confirmed neurasthenic^ yet their existence- is often a pitiable one.    They are  restless and1 unable to tix the<~rnind on any  subject,   sleep   is* disturbed,   and   often  there  is an - indefinable fluttering sensation'within tbe chest.  ' They may have a good appetite and not  feel ill physically.    And herein lies their  greatest danger," for they persuade themselves that al! they need is a nerve tonic,  of, some  sort or  a   little  -stimulant,   and'  they  dose thejns.'lvr:-.  with'various .rem-"  edies.

The fatal mistake which these persons  make is in assuming that they are not ill  physically, but only "nervous." ' In almost every such case a careful examination by a physician will bring to light djV  order of botne organ and show that the  patient is physically' ill and should be  treated accordingly. It is not nerve tonics or stimulants' that he needs, but a  course of medical treatment���������dietic, hygienic and perhaps medicinal.  In the majority of cases it will be found  that the digestion is at fault. There may  be no evident symptoms of dyspepsia���������  no nausea, distress after eating or eructations���������yet the food may be scarcely digested at all. The stomach does its work  perhaps in the preliminary digestion of  the food, but the intestines, where the assimilation of nutriment is or should be  effected, are at fault.  The food is not, elaborated into such  shape that it con be taken up by the lacteal vessels and carried to the nerve and  other structnreK thht need constant renewing, and so the tissues suffer from  partial starvation.

In'tho  city   'of London .courts some ��������� years  ' ��������� ago,' it being impracticable to procure a cow, a Parsee took l a sacred  relic out/from his bosom and holding it aloft, swore impressively, "By  God, find God omniscient, and God  omnipresent and   God  almighty." "  Mohammedans are much opposed to  swearing. When they do swear, it ia  a solemn ceremony and is performed  by holding the Koran in the right  hand, placing the left hand on the  forehead, and bringing the head  down to ."the book. A Mohammedan  seldom commits perjury. In India  their prejudice against swearing \ is  so strong that the Government allows  them .to affirm.  The   Chinese  have,,a  great  variety  of oaths,  many of them curious      in  form.  One of them is taking a    saucer  and' breaking  it   while   the  clerk  says,   "You\shall  tell the truth    and  the whole truth.  The saucer is cracked,  and if you do not  tell the truth  your soul  shall  be cracked like     the  saucer."  This is  a binding  oath,  for  the   Chinaman believes   that  his soul  can be smashed into fragments. Chinese in this country and England are  sometimes sworn by the broken saucer.   More effective,  however,    in  the  eyes      of     the  Celestials is   the  joss  stick.  The  joss stick  is  .set      alight,  and while it burns the Chinese swearer wishes that his soul may be burned  like      the stick  if he gives    false  evidence. Tbe Chinese swear in many  other  ways.   A  -solemn  oath  is made  by  writing  certain  sacred characters  on  a  paper  and  burning it,    praying  at tlie same     time that he  may  be  burned    if he     does not speak      the  truth. Sometimes he swears by burning a piece of straw,  but nothing is  so   forcible      in  drawing the      truth  from a   Chinaman  as getting him to  cut ofT a cock's head. This, like    the  breaking of   the  saucer,   has  a  religious  foundation.  The  Chinese believe  that if  their  bodies are mutilated  on  earth   their      souls  will  be similarly  mutilated   in, lienven.  WOMEN  AND  UMBRELLAS.  Ome Man's Way of Reading- Member*  of tlie Gentler Sex.  The man who sat nearest the window  said he didn't mind the wet weather. "It  gives me a chance to see how people  carry their umbrellas," he said. "I have  such faith in my umbrella deductions  that I wouldn't, be afraid to choose a  wife with them for a guide."  The woman on his left smiled.  "I'm glad I'm not out there in th������  street," she said. "You'd be picking out  all the kinks in my disposition along with  the rest of them."  "Oh," said the man, "I sized you up a'  long time ago. You carry an umbrella  when it's furled just like that woman'  ���������cross the street'. You grab it in the middle, and go forging ahead with the ends,  of the handle digging into the unfortunate pedestrians who go before and follow after." , -  "And what does that signify?" asked  tlie woman ou the left. ,  '"Alertness, activity, selfishness and ia-  considerateness."  "Um-m-m," .said the woman.  , "But just look-at the' third woman in  the procession,"- said the man. "I pity  the men folks about,her house." I'll war-,  rant they have to get* their own breakfast about six mornings out of seven: I  never yet saw a woman who dragged her  umbrella'-along so that you could track  her by the trail of the tip who wasn't  dilatory and shiftless. ' She never sews on  a button or darns or mends*, and hor  breakfast dishes are seldom washed before 2 o'clock. ' *, ,  "That other woman' who is bustling  along'holding to, tho top of the umbrella  handle'like grim death and pointing the  tip down and forward in a kind of south.  by southwesterly direction is altogether  different. She ..would set the world on'  fire if it wasn't waterlogged. I am not  sure that I'd want to be'married to her,  either. She'd be too energetic. 'She'd  push everything before her and when  she took a notion to clean things' up a  ' mere man would have nowhere to lay his  head. . What she is good for is serving on  committees.

I like  her. " She's jolly and good natured and  gets more pleasure out of life than ten  ordinary people. There's a woman carrying her umbrella swung across her shoul-  'dor like a'shotgun. ' She's a true soldier  of fortune'and was never known to say  die. I can't think of anything that'.would  feaze her.'.'     ,  The man paused.  - "And what would you say," asked the  .-woman, * "about that girl, who carries her  umbrella horizontally across the small of  her back and catches either end into the  crook of her elbow?"   ^ ��������� .  "Well," admitted the man,, "she is a  new one on me. I never met her before,  but I wouldn't ibe afraid "to "wager that  she is conscientious to a degree and has  a heart as big as all outdoors. But here,"  he added, "comes the most even tempered  woman of the lot. She cuddles her umbrella protectingly under her arm as if  she doesn't want even it "to got hurt in  tho crowd. That woman is gentle and  thoughtful and kind."���������St. Louis Republic.  EDUCATION. OF GIRLS.  Women In the *Wugre Earning-- "Worl������i  Are  Helped  "Jjy  College  Trnininsr.  An amazing amount of educational  sense and wise, , gracious counsel are  crowded into an article in The Independent on college education for ' girls by  Heloise Edwina Hersey, a graduate of  Vassar and formerly a teacher in Smith  college.  The,writer disposes at once of the question as to whether a girl should go to  college or not' by declaring that "there  is no doubt that, it is becoming anC;obsta-  cle to women who muct enter the wage  earning world not to have what is called  ��������� liberal education.',' With her there is  no room for controversy upon this point.  The profession of teaching is slowly being closed, to all those who have not the  requisite college degree, and Miss Hersey  believes that other professions will follow  suit. -If a woman expects to occupy a  position* of responsibility and profit', she  must prepare for it, by going to college.  While .the highest and noblest sphere of  woman is the home,'it is very plain that  every girl, under present conditions, must  face the contingency of being called upon  to earn her own living.  Among the gains of college life Miss  Hersey places first "the trained maid:"  'She demolishes the old time notion that  college education .means merely an accu-������  mulation of'knowledge.' Efficiency is the  all, important thing.1 What* a graduate  can, do is of far more importance than  what she knows. ��������� When a woman has  been out of college five years, Qthere is  little probability that she would be-able  to pass the examination for the freshman  year.' 'The most important element acquired is "the general knowledge of the  ,sweep"and trend of the'world's'history  which'the classics'and the literatures, of  our own language and of other languages  may give us." ' ' r  Among other advantages enumerated  by the writer are the executive experience gained in the miniature life of the  college, the great privilege of friendship  and the noble gift of loyalty'and devotion  to the fe.'raa mater with which the college  imbues the student.     '       *,        '  Of course it follows that so keen a student of education does not believe in coeducational institutions because they interfere with the cultivation of those  friendships which she' extols in college  life. If a girl selects a co-educational  college, however, she should choose one  where the idea of womanliness dominates  the education of women.���������Chicago Record-Herald.  KIND-HEARTED QUEEN.  The Tea-tinf? Habit.  Recognizing the causes which produce  the teasing habit, the cure is'self evident.  "Let your communication be yea, yea,  and nay, nay," ancl never let it be "nay,  yea," or "yea, nay." Let the word once  spoken be unchang������able even though you  change your mind and conclude that you  might just as well let the pleader have  his wish. If possible to do so, yield your  attention at once to his requests; give due  consideration to the request before you  grant or refuse; if you cannot decide immediately, ask for a little timo to consider, but let the child know you are  thinking the matter over and will reply as  soon as you can; then, having given your  .verdict, let it be unchangeable.  Prompt recognition of the child's wishes, a judicious .consideration of their  character and then a quiet, firm and un-  reversible decision in regard to them  will soon teach the child the uselessnesa  of teasing.���������American Mother, Ann Ar-x.  bor, Mich.

Long before the days of -knowledge as  to the hygienic and- rejuvenating effect  ofr the bath beautiful women discovered  the secret of preserving their charms by  ablutionary aids.

"Diana of Poictiers pinned  her faith in cold rain water and took her  matutinal tub as regularly as any water  loving damsel of today. '   *  ���������The beauties of the-last-century also  ' believed in bathing, but they put all sorts  of strange' things into the "water to improve their skins. Among the many popular additions to" the bath were veal  broth, water distilled from the honey extracted from roses, melon juice and the  milky extract of green barley and various preparations containing almonds ancl  yolk of egg.  Queen Marie Antoinette was fond of  bathing and liked the water made aromatic with wild thyme, laurel leayes and  marjoram, with the addition of a little  sea salt.  A Child's Room.

A Characteristic Incident of Her Majesty's  Life at Saiidringfliara.  In the village of Dersingham  (writes a Sandringham visitor to  M. A.

On sunny mornings  "Granny" comes out in her white  'sunbonnet and potters about among  her1" flowers. Then'is the best time  to, talk  to  her.  "The Queen." she says, .with a  puzzled look, "don't know who vou  mean, sir." Suddenly she remembers, and a smile lightens up-the old  eye's and. plays with the .wrinkled  features. "Is it'the Princess, you  mean,?"  sherisays. ��������� ��������� -r -  You tell her yes, and then she says  suddenly:, /.'"Ah! my dear, you don't  know the'Princess; do vou?" arid  then, speaking softly and smiling to  herself, she tells you the following  characteristic tale:  "One morning, two winters ago ���������,  let me see; it was' Tuesday, 'cause I  was doin' my ,bit of ironin' ��������� there  came a knock at the 'door.    I didn't  take notice.    I thought it was Jim,  mv son-in-law, v.and he just knocks  and   walks  in.     So   I  went  on   with'  my      ironin'.

In musketry training at Aldershot  experiments are being made with    a  new style of targets. Heads are made  to   appear   and   disappear   at  regular  intervals, by electricity,    along    the  sky line     of a range  of hills,  representing an enemy taking aim and firing.     These constitute targets    upon  which the rifle shots practice.      On a  railway, which the enemy is supposed  to  be  guarding,   an   armored      train  appears and is subjected to      heavy  fire.     In its rear follows the cavalry  patrol, who are also subjected to    a  heavy   rifle   lire,   completely   riddling  them,  though they effect their object  in the destruction of the line as     is  shown by the electrical  explosion of  dynamite.    The signal  cabin to    the  right of the railway,  containing several men, is then riddled, and a farmhouse which concealed  a large    number of the enemy  bom'barded.   Heads  appear at every  window,   and a soldier presently runs out of the    door  with a gun.    The soldiers    continued  their advance until arrested      by      a  heavy fire from artillery concealed in  a dense clump of trees.    The effect of  discharging shells is stimulated      by  tho      explosion  of bombs near      the  dummy guns.    The scheme is carried  out by means of electric wires    laid  beneath the turf and controlled by an  engineer, who follows the movements  of    lhe troops by means of an      arrangement of mirrors suspended over  his head, in a butt.     In a trial with  these   targets   where  the  manoeuvres  had been satisfactorily carried ... out,  the targets  were carefully examined,  and it was discovered that the tiring  of the  soldiers had   been particularly  accurate,' many  of  tbe targets  being  completely riddled.

I  steered by that and. although groaning  inwardly, bought $1,000 worth of chips  also. Schenck smiled approvingly. I  learned afterward that 1 did right. It  would not have been etiquette x to buy  as much as the prince. I was glad ot  that'. I would have been in a* pretty fix  if etiquette had taken the other shoot.  "Well, it's hardly worth whilo to go  into the details of tbe game. The ante  was ������10, four call ten. I got good enough  hands, but was scared to death. I didn't  dare bet them. The prince would look  at his cards iu a royal ermincd way and  say, 'I raise the ante ������10.'  "The young Rothschild would look at  his cards and observe, with the same indifference to my feelings which distinguished the prince. 'I'll see that aud go  ������50 better.' These blood curdling remarks took place before the draw, mind  you. And then they'd loan back and call  for what cards .they wanted and organized to- bet ������2,000 to ������.'J.000���������anything that  happened to pass into their reckless  minds. That's the sort of company I'd  got into. 1 laid -down hand after hand  and stayed out all I could; but for all my  dodging I lost $1,200 in the first forty-  five minutes���������simply' anted  it away.  'About the end ot tuc urst Hour l got  three aces. They were all that saved me"  too, I broke into a plethoric jackpot with  them, which the Drince and the Rothschild immediately raised several times,  as if for exercise. In the end I won it.  It swelled my fortune over $10,000. After that I maneuvered very cautiously  aud quit at 0 p. m. about $300 behind  the game.  "That ended my dash, as it were, into  the royal family. I never passed a more  miserable afternoon in my life. Schenck  and the duchess played along with much  calmness and phlegm, but 1 was so oppressed by my danger and, harassed by  the reckless betting of the prince and the  Rothschild that I have no recollection as  to how they fared. Schenck asked me to  other poker parties, but 1 had a previous  engagement each time. Games without  limits agaiust players equally unbounded are too many for me."  ���������isihmrilene Brings In'stant Relief a'nd Permanent  L .    '     . i  Cure in Ail Cases.

HIS  If tlie Claims of Its Inventor Are Realize**-.  It Will Suporcedo Steam as a. Motive  Power���������If Successful the New Machine  "Will Reduce Working Expenses 9������  "Per Cent.  An  acting,  improved automatic or sel-f-  gravity wheel is the modest  xitle of an invention by Herbert  "Rose of Australia, which has recently been patented' all over the worid,  and which, if the claims of its inventor, are realized, promises to supersede steam as a motive power.  The invention relates'to the construction of a gravity wheel, with  concentric ..rings, "secured to arms  radiating  from  the   centre. These  arms or  weights iict as balance and  li-  FERPETUAL MOTION, MACHINE.  driving" levers and are so nicely  ar-  r ranged���������those' on the downward  'grade .being two-thirds heavier than  those on the upward grade in action  ���������that a natural , falling of the  weights on the former grade insures  perpetual, motion.,  ' A cessation of the driving force  can only be effected by preventing  the"  weights -from falling,   and     this  ,_is' done by a very simple contrivauce  in the form of a spring which acts  on all the' weights simultaneously.  Taking a. wheel forty feet in diameter and three feet wide, it is estimated that it will carry -1,050 weights  and that the driving power will be  equal to 1,4=43% tons from the centre of the' wheel. The cost of construction is about one-sixth the cost'  of machinery for steam power, and  it is .also claimed that the new m.07  tive power, will reduce the working  expenses 95 per cent:-  The working model has been subjected to continuous tests, as it is  apparently capable, like the brooks,  of "going on forever," which, of  course, is what is expected of an invention claiming to constitute a solution of the secret of .perpetual motion.  Santos-Dumont's Rivals.  M. Santos-Dumont is confronted  by no less than seven rivals for the  Deutsch prize, most of them having  balloons prepared by Lachambre,  who is making the bag for the Santos-Dumont VI., says a Paris cable  'to The New. York Herald. The rivals are headed by M. Renard with  a military airship. M. Ader with  an aviator, M. Roze's twin balloon,  the Marquis de Dion's and M.  Deutsch's, both o'n the lines of that  of Santos-Dumont, and Don Simoni  iwith an aviator now being tried at  Suresnes. Baron Bradzky, an Austrian inventor, is the tatest recruit.  His airship Js very much like M.  Santos-Dumont's.     , *  M. >Roze expects to try his double  decker in a few days. He modestly  announces that there is no danger of  his airship capsizing. He expresses  admiration for M. Santos-Dumont  as a man, but not as a savant. The  Figaro has revived the agitation for  conferring the Legion of Honor on  the young Brazilian. M. Santos-  Dumont's friend, M. Airne, says he  will wait till he wins the Deutsch  prize.  BACK FROM THE ARCTICS.  Some Household Superstitions.  The gift of a knife cuts friendship;  in handling a needle the eye and not  the point must be extended. The  dropping of a dishcloth betokens a  visitor, and he or she will be an entire stranger should a cock crow in  the doorway. . It is unlucky to cut  the nails on Friday, although the  Arabians, on the contrary, religiously observe, that day for the purpose.  If you sing before breakfast, you  will cry before supper, and if you  stumble upstairs you will not be  married during tho year. Putting  on the left shoe first is regarded as  an omen of ill. Augustus Caesar  put his left sandal on before his  right one, and nearly lost his life  the same day in a mutiny. That  had nothing to do with it of course,  and Butler in his "Hudibras" scores  him  for the silly notion.  Almost sis s;itisf;ictor3-.

Peary Tells of the Journey North on  ������'.<��������� llolioi -ship���������Planning to Find  the Explorer.  From the land "of 'perpetual ice  ancl cold, leaving .her indomitable  husband facing a long and dreary  Arctic winter, Mrs. Robert E.  Peary, wife of Lieut. Pcarv. arrived  recently in St. John's, Nfld. Having passed two winters with Her husband at Drisco, where her daughter  Marie was ���������' born, Mrs. Peary < did not  care to pass - another winter within  the Arctic Circle, nor did her courageous husband care to nave her.  " In the summer of 1900 Mrs. Peary  sailed from North Sydney, C. B., on  the ship Windward, which was sent  by the Peary Arctic Club with stores  and supplies for the explorer. ' Aug.  3 9, 1900, the Windward, reached  Etah, which had -been Peary's ' winter quarters, and found instructions  to proceed' to Smith's Sound if possible to .meet Peary. At Cape Sabine the Windward's course northward was stopped by 'ice, and she  went into winter qtiarters in Payer  harbor. a  ; T, tried - my best to communicate  with my husband," said'Mrs. Peary  to a* reporter, "but to no purpose.  The; sailors on the Windward were  not available for work on the ice,  and the best of Eskimos' who might  be used could not be had,, as thev  lived on tho other side of the sound  from where we were. The winter  passed away slowly, but not unpleasantly^  , "When the long Arctib night began  to break away, I began to send. out  such expeditions as I 'could .to .find  Mr. Peary. At last I p.ot some good  Eskimos, and they were accompanied  by. two sailors who volunteered to  go with them^ They proceeded ' toward Fort Conger, but had not gone  more than sixty mile's when they met  Mr. Peary and ,his two companions  on the way^south. Mr. Peary had  wintered at Fort Conger, only 150  miles -away, but I did not know  ���������that, nor did he know that tho  Windward was so  near him. ''  "Mr. Peary had no idea that I was  to be on the Windward. He did not  know that I had come north to see  him until he met our searching party. It was night when he came. I  was asleep in,my room in1 the cabin  when suddenly I- heard' - a person  jump, on deck right over my head.  'Steward, steward,' I shouted, 'open  the *door!" Mr. Peary is there.' I  knew it, was Mr. - Peary,-for when'I  went up /* on the Erik in 1S92 he  came on board in just that way, and  I recognized his step. It was the  sixth of May of ' that year and his  birthday,  too.  "What he .accomplished Mr.  Bridgeman has told you better than  I ever can.' In a** general way I may  say that he has established the fact  that Greenland's farthest point  north .is 83.39 * degrees. Between it  and the North Pole is an open sea.  Mr. Peary went to 83.50 degrees  north and was forced to return because of broken ice. This coming  summer he will make an attempt to  reach the North Pole, going over  that same route."  Mr. Peary 'did not know, of his  mother's death, which occurred in  Portland, until the Erik conveyed  the news to him. Neither did he  know of the death of his baby  daughter, who died eighteen months  after he started on-his trip, three  years ago, until his wife told him of  it. Mrs. Peary has gone to her  home in Washington to wait until  another spring, when she will once  more accompany the Windward on  the relief trip.  The Nevr niockhouset.

His  marriage with Edith, Countess of  Loudoun and Baroness Hastings in  her own right, gave him his name  and his great possessions. After her  death, the yearly dole of 100 tons  of coal from his Moira collieries to  the poor of Ashby-de-la-Zouch and  Castle Donington became an institution; and the burial of her hand  apart from the rest of her body was  all in accordance with a romantic  family, tradition.  LONG DISTANCE RUNNERS.  Workman and Cockshott Aro Premiers la  Their Class in Great "Britain. ���������  Long distance runs, are. a supreme  test of endurance and condition. ,As  in long .distance swimming, most of  the powerful muscles are subjected,,_to  a .continuous and violent strain, and  a man must have careful - trainings  topped by a. sound constitution,     to  H.

English athletes have long - been  premiers in half,-'one, two and three  mile runs. For "many years past  -they,^ Have, defeated contestants of  different nationalities, and the end  seems not yet. , Americans sometimes  lead Britishers in the short ' events,  but they do not appear to be , able  to produce a man capable of worsting, .their ��������� English cousins in runs  longer than a quarter mile.  The two greatest English long distance runners of the present period  are H.. W. Workman and F. G-. Cockshott of Cambridge University. Workman is the world's champion in the  half and two mile events, while the  latter holds all comers at the mile.  These men are remembered'as victors  in the international;"intercollegiate  athletic- meet recently held oh .Berke7  ley oval, New York. , '������������������.'���������  Workman -is a minister and is an  impressive example . of "muscular  Christianity." He runs in a peculiar manner, holding his head high in  the air and taking short strides. His  hands he holds clinched close to his  breast, with the palms turned upward. The American style oi running with the head inclined forward  and of taking long, sweeping and  somewhat slower strides presents as  strong contrast. The English running style, however, like the English  rowing style, seems to be attended  with the better results.  A DESERTED CONVENT.'  Chartreuse   Monks   Driven  Froin   France  by Associations' I������ir.  Th������ convent of La Grande Chartreuse, in the Isere department of  France, after nearly 1,000 years of  beneficient activity-has just been deserted by the Carthusian monks, and  the world's supply of the rich  liqueur which bears their name has  been stopped at its source. The new  "associations laws" of France has  driven the friars out of the country, and the republic incidentally  -loses one of the largest sources of  revenue. The order of the Carthusians  was founded by  the holy     St.  CONVENT OF LA GRANDE CHARTREUSE.  Bruno in 1081, and the first monastery was built on the site occupied  by the present one. The latter  buildings are nearly 400. years old,  and in them was manufactured the  yellow, green and white chartreuse,  so loved as an after-dinner cordial  by good epicures'. The process of  manufacture is a secret and has been  safely guarded for centuries. It is  not definitely- known what country  the exiled monks will select for the  site of their mother monastery. England has been discussed, but the  most recent information seems to  indicate that they will settle in the  Isle of Wight, where the hills and  valleys are highly favorable to the  production    of their famous liqueur.  Aerated Mills.  Aerated milk is offered at most of the  dairies nowadays. A former custom jtt  the milk farms was to bottle the milk  as soon .is it came from the cow. Now it  is put. through a largo strainer and allowed to run through an ice packed duct  before it is put into the bottles. 'This  ���������nrocess orotluces the aerated milk.  Her Inference.

Wkere Yoa Will Find It on the Cloud  of Domestic  Help.  , " 'Tis an ill wind that blows nobody  good'' runs the old saying, and the  present ill wind of the domestic service  question seems to be righting matters  behind the scenes. Teachers in the  social settlements, in public schools and  in Sunday schools have long been aware  that a shoddy 'disrespect for - manual  labor was rapidly developing among the  working classes, not only among ' the  children of laboring men', but among the  families of clerks and salaried men earning as much as $3,000 a year, where, the  income'does not justify the,keeping of  more'than one, seHvaat to do the work,of  a large family and where a portion of  the sewing' must be flone by mothers and  daughters'-in the household.  When cooking and ��������� sowing classes  were started in the public schools, it was  no uncommon thing for two or three girls  < in a class of thirty pupils to refuse to  begin the work on the ground that "we  always keep a girl," or "my mother  can't cook ancl neither-shall I; she says  if I-learn, I'll have to do it," and "ladies  never go into the kitchen," and'"I hate  to do housework," or "we always have'  our sewing done," etc. In every instance"  quoted the fathers',earned small pay and  the daughters looked forward ,to being  teachers, stenographers, and a few. actually went to the $3 positions in the  department stores. Suppose a girl married with notions of this kind,-what sort  of a. home would she'make? Where one  housekeeper need not knit her brows,  over making'income and expenses balance there are tens of-thousands',who  make it a daily struggle. -'        '.,   ,  So the silver lining to the servant cloud  is that scarcity of help will send the  daughters of the household to the kitchen  to learn that after all housework is not  all' drudgery when viewed in the light  , of common'' sense,' that the more intelligent the mistress on housekeeping detail's  the better able she is to "manage a servant, that, there is more.science, variety,  and dignity in doing-housework well than  there is in much oflice and shop employ-  ' ment and that the title of a lady does  not depend on the'kind of work that ls  done, but on the character of the woman  back of .the work. Secondly, the foolish  untrained foreign handmaids who comes  to- this country and expect to receive  home and pay for unskilled labor done  grudgingly will learn ..that the housekeeper has demands on her side and will  have none'of their services or take only  thoroughly competent and faithful labor  for- the generous wages which' she pays.  A PETRIFIED MAN.  Resbains of   an   Inoa   'decently   Found in  Chile.  Since September at the Pan-American Exposition- there has been'on,  exhibition in . the Chilean building  the petrified remains of an Inca, believed to be the only genuine human '  petrification in existence.  The body was found in an old copper mine, near' Colama, at an altitude of 11,000 feet. The, air there  was very rare and,dry, and the mine  revealed not a' suspicion of moisture, while the only gas noticeable  was an r'"--se of at'r-cainite. The  depth,of burial was less than , seven  feet. The tools used were a* sledge'  hammer made of a piece of stone  held in the loop, of a bent green ,  branch and bound there' with thongs  so that the- hands could grasp1 the  stone on both sides, a, pair 'of stone,,,  shovels, made ' by putting m> flat  blade of slate into a cleft stick, and  binding  Scuoolfflrl DiBMlpatlo*.  ��������� The Irish girl, with' the physique of *  Venus, boasted that she, could scrub all  day and dance all "night, says Ethelwyn  , Wetherald in Good ' Housekeeping. The  feat is not so much more difficult than  that performed by" the average undeveloped high-school girl who studies all day  (not nearly so healthful an exercise-as  scrubbing) and goes to some form of social entertainment at night.  . Let them enjoy life while they aro  ,young?'~ By all means. ,But the unrestcd,  irritable girl,' after an hour or two of  sleep and a scrap or two-of breakfast,  "putting in" the school hours somehow���������  }s she enjoying life while she is young?  She has spent most of her not very large  supply of oil over the previous night's  festivity and now the light that she sheds  on her studies is flickering, dim and unsatisfactory. In schoolgirl phrase, she  feels "as cross as a bear with no end of  soro heads." What a pity that her  mother will not let her enjoy life while  she is young! Let not mothers be  deceived. When the still hours clothed in  black find your beloved young daughter  eating salad about as digestible as the  orange skin in which it is served and the  ribbon it' is tied with instead of being  fathoms deep in slumber, it is a sure indication that she is giving not only the  light of her countenance to her friends,  but the precious oil of her present health  and future physical prosperity.

I suppose your teacher  is a very pleasant lady,-isn't she?"  "Naw. I don't like her very well. But  there's a boy in our class that can make  hi3 ears go up and down and wiggle tha  top of his head."  Lord Roberts, , on Oct. 11, 1901,  unveiled a fine statue of Queen. Vic-  'toria, which has been .erected on the  Infirmary Esplanade at -Manchester  as a Diamond Jubilee memorial. One  passage of his address made a deep  impression on his hearers'".  "1 cannot help thinking," he said,  "that but for, the intense anxiety  caused by the war in South Africa,,  and by the deep sorrow Her Majesty,  felt ih the loss of so many of her devoted sailors and- soldiers, among  them her own grandson, she might  still have been with us. When I took  my leave of the gracious lady in December," 1899, Her Majesty seemed to  mo then as well as 1 remember '~~ta>-  have seen her for many years; but  when I next saw her on my return  from South Africa, although only  twelve short months had passed. I  was startled at the change that had  taken place. 7 Those were, indeed,  twelve months of heavy anxiety to  the whole empire, but more especially to our beloved Sovereign, who  ever took the deepest interest in her  troops taking part in the war, and  we see in so many different ways  how keenly she felt for all their suTj-  ferings and privations. During my  last visit . to Osborne the Queen  spoke of little else than matters connected with the army in South ' Africa. She expressed her profound admiration for the gallantry displayed  by all engaged in that war, and when  discussing how necessary it was for  us to maintain an army strong  enough to meet the ever-increasing  demands of .her empire, she .showed  how thoroughly she appreciated tho  great difficulties that had: to.-be (sur-  xnounted."    -  A Hard Hit.  A Christian young lady was being  greatly tormented by.a very frivolous critic, who .laughed at her for  believing such stories as, that of,  Jonah and the whale. She stuck to  her guns, and said that when she  met Jonah in heaven; she would ask  him for an explanation. "But, suppose he is not in. heaven," "said the  sceptic, "what will you do then?"  "Ah, well," said the lady, "in that  case, you can ask him." .'.'. ;  Concernintr Gnesto.  Make no attempt to vary your usual  bill of fare. Your guest will infinitely  prefer the newness of your dishes to an  imitation of her own. If you live in the  country, the home made bacon and ham  will be a rare treat, and a bass, fresh  from the river, will be a revelation to  one who has only eaten fish after it has  been packed in ice.

One winter long ago I hunted deer and  fished   for  salmon   trout  in   and  around  Bonaparte lakes, just north of ncrkimet  county. X. Y��������� in tbe Adirondack..;, says,*  ' contributor.   I fished,  putting down  100  hooks through holes in the ice abont'eiE'ht  :ods   apart.    These   hooks   wore   baited  with .good sized minnows as full of life as  though  at  liberty.    After the   lines  had  been  down the  first night  I  took  from  them-in the morning twenty-five good, big  trout.   Each successive morning L got less  and I'-Ps- until bu the eighth day the mun-  ~ ber of trout taken had diminished to seven   or eight.   .But  every  bait   was  gone  trom every hook as on the first morning  when I made,the big haul. A I knew the  trout-had not all been taken, from (hose  waters, but it was also apparent, that I  cculd not catch any more of them without removing my  tackle,'  so  I cut new  holes in the ice and moved down about a  quarter of a milei .There my results were  exactly in the same ratio as "the first', and  I  had  to  move0again in  seven or eight  days.    *'                        _  ,,   One day I ran a line of hooks in such a  direction  that' ,one "<of them   came  right  over a rocky, bar where there was open  water.'   I decided to nisike an experiment  with this hook.   I fastened the upper end  of the line  to an  overhanging  piece of  brush so that nothing could interfere with  the bait below" without making the brush  wriggle.  Then I lay down to watch. Very  soon the brush b.;gan to wriggle in a lively fashion.   Looking down into,the water.

TRIBE DIBPUT1S, II  GREAT   BRITAIN/  . r~���������'- <������������������;. '<     -  In .the' thirteenth annual report  of '.he chief labor correspondent-in  ��������� Great-' Britain    on   lock-outs   and  strikes  in  that  country   iu   1901,'  contains   much  of .interest to  tne  -working  man.     Six hundred and  forty-eight disputes were recorded,.  ' involving 188,5,38 persons"," and the  aggregate duration of' all, disputes  was 3,152,694 working days, v The  strike's and lock outs involved about  2'2 per, cent, of J.he industrial population. The result's of these troubles:  were somewhat liiore favourable .to"  .-, working people than in late years."  The great majority of the disputes  > were arranged directly between the  parties'or their representatives; trie'  number settled by arbitration, con1-  . ciliation, or, mediation'being'only  -* 32.    The work'of agencies for* arbi-.  '/tration'and,conciliation shows .that  ' xthese agencies were more concerned''  with the prevention than* with" the  settlement of strikes ancl ]ock-outs.  Id a general comparison of 1900  with 'the four preceding yeais the  number,of separate'disputes shows  a   large' falling  off.     The  actual  * number'of disputes was only 648 as  against 719 in 1899, and711 in 1898.  The mean percentage of working  people affected by disputes in* all  trades, except agricultural laborers,  seamen and fishermen, during the  period 1899-1900, was 2'5, the majority of the year involving less  than 100 work people each. The  settlement of strikes and lock-outs  now forms but a very small proportion of the work of agencies for  conciliation and arbitration. f The  usefulness of these modes of arranging disputes is shown by the fact  that 58 per cent, of all the changes  of the year, as measured by the  number of people affected, were arranged * by sliding scales, wages,  boards, or other methods of arbitration and conciliation, while onl}-- 5  per cent, of the changes followed  strikes or lock-outs. Of the strikes  ai;d locfi-outs 3'2, or about 8 per  cent, of the total for all disputes,  were brought to a close by the  mediation of a third party or board,  or by reference to arbitration. The  main work of the agencies for conciliation and arbitration is the settlement of questions which might  otherwise lead to strikes or lockouts. The work of boards of conciliation a,nd arbitration is a very  important one, particularly their  more, important function, namely  the settlement of disputes which  arise before they develop into a  stoppage of work. Some of the  Boards of conciliation settle only  questions at general works, general  changes in wages being settled by  the sliding scale machinery. The  number of boards actually settling  cases was greater in the year 1901,  than in any of the four preceding  years.  DIRECT from' tne GEOWBR to the CONSUMER  C. J. MOORE..
