Hicks rendered his selections splendidly, and especially so that  beautiful song "Anchored."  . Mrs..Francis Deans Little played the  accompaniments. When Mrs. Little presides at the piano the instrumental part  of the entertainment is suie to be one of  the best feature of the program.  R. S. C.  JAPANESE CONSUL IN CUMBERLAND.  What He   Thinks of tho   Alien Bill,  Our City and Other Things.  A representative of Tun News called on  K. I. Japanese Majesty's Consul at the  Union Hotel, Thur*d.Ay evening. Mr.  S'-izaburo Shimizu is an exui-lleut typo of  tho cultured Japanese gentleman. In per-  person, he is below the middle height and  rather slight. He has' a very intelligent  countenance, and gracious manuer.  Asked what he, thought of our town, he ,  replied: "Although the short time L have  been able to spend here has not permitted  me to see as much as I should have liked,. I  am -very favorably impressed with the general appearearance of the town. I was quite  struck  with the ' progressive .spirit .of  the  : c  citizens, and have no doubt that a few years  will see a large city here."' -  Mr. Shimizu expressed himself as greatly  pleased with the standing and prosperity ot  his country ��������� men, in this' town, as well as  throughout thewhole province. He said:  "I have mingled .with all classes of Canadians and I find they are unanimous in the  opinion that Japamese laborers are far ahead  of Chinese, which is a source of gratification  to me. 1 have met with miners in Union  who would refuse to work" in the mines were  thev not allowed Japaurse assistants. But  afteT ali it is generally the lower class of my -  countrymen who immigrate into this country, and it is hardly fair to judge all* of us  from a' bingle type. Stall,*! think our laboring classeB compare favorably with'those of  any other country. "They can all read and  write.'for.in Japan parents and. guardians  " are compelled to s^rid> children' nnder./their  care to school from the age of six to fourteen."  "What do you think of the Alien Bill?"  The Consul smiled rather sarcastically.  "What can we think of it? With ue it is.  not a question of material interest, for employment for a few hundred men out of a-  nation of forty millions is of no great consequence, and, besides, they can get it'elsewhere. It is altogether a question of sentiment. To exclude Japanese from this country would be an insult to our national dignity. Japan made wonderful progress progress before that, but the Chinese war demonstrated to other peoples that we have  taken our place among the great nations of  the world, and our government is determined to uphold the honor. If the Federal  Government does not interfere, then we  shall appeal to the Imperial authorities. If  they decline to disallow the measure, then  our government can prevent immigration to  this country altogether. If we were con-  vioced that all classes in this province were  opuosied to"the immigration of Japanese, it  .would be undignified on om* part to try to  forbe our way in, but I don't believe they  are. There is a strong feeliDg in favor <-f  Japanese labor. I hope the Alien Bill will  never become law, and hence, that extreme  measures will be unnecessary.  ���������'I hj.d uo special mission up here, but I  wished to see my people, and I shall make  a report of my observations for our government.    I may  come   up again   in the  near  future "  Mr. Shimizu -continued. "Our eople  spend a greafc deal of their money in this  country, perhaps too much. Most people  here are extravagant. A large cumber  spend more than they earn."  This is the Consul's first visit to our city.  He was appoinced Consul afc Vancouver in  1892 and remained there till December 1S95.  Then'he was removed to Honolulu where he  remained one year. From Honolulu his  government sent Mr. Shimizu to Hongkong,  and from Hongkong be was sent back to-  Vauccuver in December 1897. He has been  in this province continually ever since.  Mr. Shimizu expressed himself as delighted with his reception here, not only from  his own paople, but also from ths loading  citizens. He speaks English with a foreign  accent but quite fluently.  I^atest Wirings.

More than  that, she derives'from her employment an  amplo incomo and suggests that other ambitious young women follow in her footsteps.

Her little playmates in   Germany,  Switzerland  and Italy taught her many quaint ways of  self entertainment, and whon 6he returned  to her mother country a great* idea sug-  .  gestcd itself to her.    Sho would give these  ".  games to tho littlo boys and girls of America, who after playing "Old Dan Tucker"  and "Drop the  Handkerchief" well  nigh  exhaust their repertory of amusement.  In  v this way she gradually drifted into what  can now justly be termed a profession.1  Mies  Shippon   finds   various  waye . of  . .keeping tho interest of the children she is  , entertaining.    She tells them stories, gets  up impromptu little plays���������for which sho  , furnishes   tissue   paper   costumes���������plays  /lively little  ditties and  gets them all to  dancing like the sprightly elves and fairies  they are bo fond of hearing about.

Miss Ship-  pen is an excellent pianist, being a pupil  of M.

Women Book Afi-enta.  "There is one pursuit captured by women," said a "Washington lawyer, "that has  hardly attracted any attention. That is  ;the selling of lawbooks. There is a boundless field of opportunity for tha sex in this  line bf work. The multiplicity of courts,  the rapid increase of business and lawsuits  and tho over swelling host of young lawyers together afford an excuse for a vast  amount of printing. There aro a dozen or  more large publishing houses running at  "fall force on new lawbooks which must  bo sold. Somo of them aro Indispensable,  and overy good lawyer must have them.  But a largo proportion are reports of the  decisions of out of tho way courts, collections of cases in special linos of practico or  , digests of all manner of obiter law in every  petty court in the land. Of courso tho  only way to soil this stuff is to put travel -  : ing salesmen on tho road to get right at  the profession and cram the books down  the lawyer's throat.  ' "Nearly all the publishing houses employ handsome, bright, quick witted women to do this part of tho work.    Somo of  ithem aro young and attractive and do not  allow their charms to drive away business.  Most of them, howover, aro middlo aged  women, who havo had a good deal of experience in business and know human nature to a dot. They invado" tho lawyer's  office, and by their knowledge of law and  practice, together with a knack of tolling  .good stories and dealing out a modicum of  flattery, soon inveigle a follow into subscribing for a shelf full or two of wood  pulp, lamp black aid  sheepskin  that ho  .had far better let rot in tho publisher's  cellars. And tho young student who has  greatnoss, fame and fortune by the throat  falls an easy prey to the woman book  agent.  "Ono way she docs it is to get hold of a  professor or sonic bright student and from  him learn all about every class in the various law schools.. Then sho sizes up each  man and knows just who is likely to be  ������n easy victim.  It is safe to say that where  , thero was ono lawbook 6old in the primitive and class times of Daniel Webster and  Henry Clay there aro 20 sold now.   Every  . 2-year-old praotitioner in the country nowadays has more books than Webster and  Clay ever dreamed of owning.    The worn-  ' on book agent is largely responsible for  it."���������Washington Star.  Teaching His Wife a I^esaon.  "My wife has a disagreeable habit of  leaving her pocketbook in exposed places,"  said the man who was telling the story.  "I have cautioned her more than once  ' that she would lose it If she wasn't more  careful.  "I came down town with her tho other  morning, and the first thing she did after  ' boarding the car was to deposit her purse  ��������� upon tho car scat while sho relieved her-  self of tho terrible suspicion that her hat  Wasn't on straight. A movement of her  arm knocked the pwrso on tho floor, whero  it remained until I picked it up.  "I re8cu___dj_hj__tpur_i������ unlessthan ajjoz-  en times before we reached tho oargain  counter that was the goal of my wife's  ambition.  "Events around a bargain counter occur  with kaleidoscopic swiftness, and I soon  found myself the sole guardian of my  wife's purso, ���������which lay before me on the  counter, 'where i.t had been deserted by her  in a mad rush for the other end of the  counter. "  "To toach her a lesson I emptied the  contents ef the purso in my pocket and. retreated to the edge of the crowd to await  developments.  "It wasn't long before my wifo crowded  her way out, triumphantly holding aloft a  o  35 cent cream  jug that she had succeeded  In buying for 49 cents.  " 'I didn't know that thoy charged  things hero,' I began feebly.  '��������� 'They don't,' she answered. 'I have  money left for three ico croaiu sodas and a  strip of car tickets.' And sho exhibited  tiio contents of hor purse to prove hor assertion.  "I nearly fainted when it dawned upon  me that I had taken the contents from a  purso belonging to somo other woman.  "I have no desire to retain ,possession,  and if the woman who lost 79.cents, a  postage stamp, three hairpins and a recipe  for making angel food will call at my office sho may have her property."���������Detroit  Treo Press.  Shopping: In Italy.  Tho American finds much to try her In  ihopping in Italy. . In the first plaoo,  briskness is unknown. Tho Italian always  produces the impression of feeling that he  , has the whole day ahead of him. Two of  his favorite phrases illustrate this: "C'e  tempo" (thero is time) and "Ci vuol pazi-  enza" (one must have patience). Whether  one agrees with tho first expression or not  she has ample cause and opportunity to  exercise the second. The leisurely bearing  with which the salesmen bring forth their  wares drives.the hurried and unphilosoph-  ical shopper to the verge of desperation...  Tho very manner in .which goods are  kept stored in Italy is a fruitful cause of  anguish. Suppose, for instance, that one  'is searching for spring underwear. With  us such articles aro kept in bozos or drawers, and it is an easy thing to whisk them1  out and display them to the buyer. - In  Italy, on the contrary, each style and size  are wrapped in paper, and the packago tied  with a string. To make a selection it is  necessary to have - an endless untying and  spreading but of parcels,'during which  lively would be purchasers suffer from the  fidgets. It is the same way with stockings  and a variety of other necessary articles,  and the buyer must either say and practice  "Ci vuol pazienza" or render herself bankrupt in cellular tissue.  Another source of trial is what appears  to us the outlandish method of having  things that apparently belong together  sold in different establishments.' Silks are  found in one shop, woolens in another and  ribbons in a third.' At none of these can  one buy needles and thread. If a woman  wishes to hang a pair of curtains, she purchases the materials at one shop, the rod  and rings at a different place, the iron fixtures at a third and has to go to a fourth  to find an upholsterdr to put thera"up.->  Christine Terhu'ne Herrick in Harper's  Bazar.  Why Siamese Women Fade Early.  All women of the tropics fade early, but  none more quickly than the womon of  Siam, and this chiefly for two reasons.  They aro really very protty as young girls  and, seldom or never growing stout, they  6hould retain their beauty for a long period  and would do so were it not for some of  their customs and superstitions.  Tho most promiscuous of these is the  treatment of a woman who has just become a mother. A fire, to which she is  entirely unaccustomed in that hot climate,  is immediately lighted in her room near  the bed and kept burning withoxit intermission for two weeks. This is dono for  the purpose of exorcising demons and evil  spirits and very often results in exorcising  the spirit of the poor little woman herself.  Tho heat of her room during her entire  illness is simply insupportable, and where  it does not produce fatal results tends to  undermine tho strongest constitution. As  tho girls marry when very young they are  likely to be old women long before they  are SO.  Then the disgusting habit of chewing  tho betel nut, combined wjth tho fact that  they have no dentists, transforms the originally pretty mouth of the Siamese women into a hideous spectacle. They first  smear a seri leaf over with quicklimeand  then wrap in it a piece of tho betel nut,  very much as .one rolls a cigarette, and  thoy are rarely seen without a piece in  their mouths.  The Siameso.women havo a curious way  of carrying this narcotic about with them.  They havo their ears pierced exactly as. tho  women of other nations piorco theirs for  tho purpose of wearing earrings, only instead of donning jewels thoy stick into tho  perforations tho stems of several of theso  pr'oparcd leaves. Ono may frequently sco  them starting off for a" chat with , their  neighbors, their cars quito overloaded  with their favorite refreshment.���������^Exchange.  Suitablo Food For Children.  "Tho realization of tho importance of  the use of the proper food for children is  only just beginning to be felt," said a physician to a reporter recently. "Too often  the child's food is almost exactly that of  tho parents, including tea and coffee. So  much dosing with medicines would bo  unnecessary if parents were intelligent  enough to know the use of the proper  foods at the proper times. It is to be hoped  that thero will come a time when it will  bo necessary for girls to take at least a six  months'course in tho chemistry of foods  and the correct treatment of tho stomach.  "Tho foundation of digestion, good or  bad, is laid in tho earliest years, and many  of tho ills of later life might almost be directly traced to improper food in childhood's days.  "As a basis for a child's food, whole  wheat bread and milk and cream are best,  tho bread homemade. Occasionally white  bread toasted may bo used or light milk  biscuit as a change. Milk and eggs may  be used in abundance, but moat should be  omitted altogether until the child has the  proper tooth for grinding it.  * There are many good cereal breakfant  foods to be used with milk, but one should  be economical with ihe sugar: Too much  %t it is harmful and produces fermentation  in the child's stomach, causing cramps,  colic and dysentery. Bye meal porridge is  , good and will overcome constipation, but  oatmeal should not bo used too lavishly,  as a constant use sometimes produces skin  trouble. One of , these foods,* with thin  dices of graham,, whole wheat or rye  bread, moistened with a - littlo butter or  cream, some hot water and milk or weak  cocoa, makes a good breakfast."���������New  York Tribune.  Care ef Iiamps.  The light of oil lamps is so much softer  and less injurious for the eyes than flickering gas, or even electricity, that it really  should be used instead of theso in all nurseries and children's rooms, and the only  drawback about lamps is that they requiro  such careful tending to keep them in a-  safe and bright condition. But given a  conscientious nurse or a mistress who undertakes their management herself all will  be well. One very necessary thing in  lampg is that the oil reservoir be kept  scrupulously clean inside. No oil' is so  pure that it does not leave a sediment, and  if this sediment be allowed to accumulate  the succeeding oil fails to burn as brightly'  as if. otherwise would.  Lamp reservoirs should be washed out  once a week with hot water and pearl ash  and be allowed to thoroughly drain and  dry before new oil be added. Tho burner,  should also be frequently cleaned���������once a  day, in fact���������and every orifice should bo  thoroughly cleaned out. The wick should  be wiped at the top with a piece of soft rag  to remove tho charred edges, and if tho  ,wick should be found to burn rather  cloudily it may bo necessary to remove it  the next morning and soak it for an hour  dr two in vinegar and water. ,It should  bo quite dry before being again placed in  tho burner. .-. '  Trainlaa* the tittle Folks.  ~ .I .  Many evils follow in the train of a spivit  of intolerance,' and it is this spirit into  which the willfulness of a little child of-,  ten develops. Tlie waywardness of a pretty-baby is at times amusing, and there is  a disposition to make light of childish  ebullitions of temper, but the lesson of self  control cannot be taught, too early, and  none can deny that the parents who havo  bequeathed this inheritance to their children have given them that which is of far  more value than all the wealth of Gol-  oonda.  The attempt to keep your children in  ignorauce of stories about ghosts, fairies,,  giants and gypsies will certainly prove  futile. If they are of nervous and imaginative temperament, they will invent new  terrors for - themselves instead ef the old  traditional ones. A little girl of 6, who  had been jealously guarded against any  acquaintances .with  nursery  bogies   and  - superstitions, suffered from night terrors  of a severe kind, in which she always  screamed, out that she was being chased  by robbers. ' But, while it may be practicable .to protect children from a knowl-.  edge of the supernatural and mysterious,  it is inexcusable to frighten them with  hidoous stories or to leave them a prey to  ' the terrors of the solitude and darkness.���������  Philadelphia'Times.      *  A Good Way to Freshen Crape.  "In   buying   crape,'", says  'Emma  Hooper in The Ladies' Homo Journal,  M.  "ii  is well to ask for the waterproof and thug  avoid anxiety when in the rain���������.as the ordinary material will spot and loso its crisp-  ness when wet. When this does happen,  or if the crape has worn rusty looking and  shabby, it may bo steamed and thus renew  its glossy, crisp texture and appearance.  This process has been tried for many years  in my immediate family and gives the  most satisfactory results, and it may be  repeated as often as necessary. . Rip the  horns out of the veil or tho trimming to  be renovated, as each piece must be fiat.  Brush tho dust off with an old piece oi  ���������ilk and pull out all of tho threads. Then  have a clean broom handle and around  this wrap each piece of crape, keeping it  smooth until all aro on tho handle and  fastened with small pins. Do not pull it  very tightly. Keep a wash boiler half full  of boiling water and rest the handle across  the edges of the boiler so that it may be  turned several times during the five hours  that the crape is steaming. Then stand  the handle up until the crape is perfectly  dry. This usually requires ton hours.  When unpinned, ,it will be found glossy  and crisp as when now, and a pleasure to  the economical woman." t  To Grow. Violets Successfully.  One all important item in the culture of  violets is ventilation. They must have  fresh air and plenty of it at all times.  Good ventilation is easily secured by placing blocks under the ends of the sash.  Thoy will require careful watching during  tho bright, sunny days, to prevent the  temperature from rising too high. The  nearer it can bo kept at from 55 to 60 do-  greos during tho blooming season the better. Cooler temperature before time foi  blooming will bo necossary. During severe winter weather it will be necessary to  cover tho sash with manure, strawy litter  or old carpets to keop out the cold. These  coverings should not remain on during  the daytime unless it soems necessary. As  to watering the grower will have to use  some judgment. Violets must never be  allowed to dry out, and requiro considerable water. Allow plenty of water, but  avoid daily soaking, whether needed or  not. It is rather a difficult matter to grow  violets in tho house, the hot dry heat of  tho ordinary living room being disastrous  to the health of the plant.���������Woman's  Homo Companion.

He has a magnificent bead, crowned with white hair, strongly marked  features, the aspect of an ascetic, with  something marblelike in the general appearance of the figure. His face is lighted by a piercing look, and his amiablo  and paternal smile goes straight to the  heart of those whom he addresses. His  voice is sonorous and very pleasing,  though less mellow and more powerful  than that of Pius IX.  "The day after his election he was  asked why he took the name of Leo, and  he replied,'..? Because Leo XII was the  benefactor of my family, but also because Leo signifies lion, and the virtue  which seems to me the most necessary  of all is the force of the lion. ?

How Ec Outwitted Two Boys Who Set a  Trap to Catch Him.  J. G. Wood, naturalist, tells us that the'  rat is intelligent to a degree. To this fact,  ho says, any professional rat catcher will  bear witness, "for to catch an old rat is a  feat that taxes human intellect to tho ut- '  most." I know of two boys who mado  the experiment, and who now fully agree  with Professor Wood.      , ;  They wanted to capture an old'rat that :  lived in the barn.    Ono of this rat's long*  passages ran underneath tho building and  opened' at tho back into a shady corner of  the barnyard.    This seemed to bo the old  fellow's favorite doorway.    Tho boys had  often seen  him dart across tho yard and <  vanish through it..   They thought therefore that this was tho placo whore they,  might hope to tako him.      ���������  So ono afternoon they brought n trap,  ���������temptingly baited with a pieco of smoked'  cheese, and placed it a few foot from tho  wall, directly facing tho holo. Then they  climbed a, near by tree, from which thoy  could observe all that might happen with?  out being themselves seen. '  Tho trap was on the plan of the ordinary rod wooden mousetrap,'only\ lt was  larger and mado of wire. There was the  usual hole for tho raVs head to enter, and  tho checso was stuck firmly on tho little-  trigger, which on being jorked' would  causo tho spring to fly up and choko the  victim. '    i  In about half an hour tho boys heard a  , faint scratch on tho gravel beneath.    The'  rat ,had como to tho door of his  passage  and was glancing cautiously around.    No  ' ono was  in sight. . Nothing stirred.    He '  gazed longingly at the cheese.    Tho boys ,  held their  breath  as  they watched and *���������  leaned forward in their eagerness.  ' Oh, if, _  he would only bo quick! Something might  happen to frighten him off.  But tho old rat was in no hurry.-   Ago  had taught  him  many things, and made  i him crafty.    He staid just inside his holo  and considered tho matter thoroughly. He  .smiled quietly behind his. long gray whiskers at the thought of any ono's supposing  that he would be taken in  by a simple  '' trick  liko that.    He knew from tho very  first that it was a trap and studied it  to discover how it was worked.", In a  moments ho  again caine from   his h  slowly, cautiously, as  before and delilx .

Why do boys say "You're it" when  playing tag? Some of the people who live  over in England do not seem to think  much of the letter "h," being in the habit  of dropping it from the words where it belongs and putting it where ifc does not belong. What fun there is in it or why they  do it no one can tell, but they have been  in tho hfcbit of doing it for a good many  hundred years. For this reason when the  little English boys who were great-greatgrandfathers years and years ago were  having grandtimes in their games they,  too, kept dropping their "h's" from the  words they were shouting. So when they  played tag as boys do now, touching each  other with their hands, whenever one boy  hit another he at once shouted out,  "You're it," for he could not say "hit,"  you know. And all tho generations of  boys who have since then been playing the  game continued to say "it" instead of  "hit," even after our fathers learned to always put their "h's" in every other word  where they belonged.���������-Christian Work.

Rooalling   herself,   she   sat  again,   keeping, as before, near to  m  rfc- .  t i  ku.  down  Olive,  andfcaking'as little sharo in tho conversation as was possible. Sho dared not trust  herself too much; hor good resolves wero  strong, but not stronger than was the  charm of his,voice and prosenoo.  "Let them think me uncivil." she  murmured to herself; "what does it matter now?" <. ' ���������., ' ' i  But her trial was not ovor. Olive and  Clarence had held frequent council together concerning the wayward girl, and  how thev could best influence her aright  without breaking the letter or spirit of  their promise to her. And the absonco of  Claire added to their, freedom of speech.  Olive had intimated to Doctor Vaughan  that Madelino had taken somo, perhaps,  ' unsafe, steps in , the pursuit of her  , enemios. He, understanding the Impetuosity of the girl, as well as her reckless ^ fearlessness, could not conceal the  anxiety he felt.  ' Acting under an impulse of disinterested kindness, Clarance Vaughan crossed  tho room  and sat   down   by  Madeline s  sido. -���������   ' '      ., .  "Miss Madeline," he said, as respectfully as if to an empress, "we, Mrs. Gir-  nrd and myself, cannot get rid of the idea  that somehow'you-partly belong to us;,  that we ought to be given a little, 3ust a  very little, authority over you."      <.  There was' a shade of bitterness in the  girl's answer. "You have the-right to  exercise authority over me, if you choose  to do so. You are my benefaotors."  " They felt the reproof of her words. This  ,keen-wlfcted, uncontrollable girl, was putting up barrier upon barrier between hor-  . self and their desire to serve her. Very  'quietly he answered her.  "You do us an injustice, whon you suggest that we claim your confidence on the  score of any indebtedness on your part. It  has been our happiness to servo you. If  we have not your esteem, if we may. not  ' stand toward you In the light ofa brother  "and sister, anxious only for your welfare  1 and happiness',, then we have no claim  upon.you.".-  " ",Mv hanpiness'."   - -  :   ,  Tho face was averted,; but tho lips wero  pale and drawn, and -the words came  through them like a moan.  Olive stirred uneasily. She could see  that the girl was suffering, although she  did not guess at tho cause.  "Yes," continued Clarence, laying his  hand gently upon hors; "Madeline���������will  you let me call you Madeline?���������will you  let me be your brother? I have no sister,  almost no kin; I won't be an exacting  brother," smilingly. "I won't overstep  the limits you set mo, but wo must have  done with this nonsense about benefactors, and gratitude, and all that." '  .' No answer, eyes down dropped, faco  still half-averted, and looking as if hardening into marble.  "What  is  my  fate?" .still holding her  '   hand.    " Can you accept  so  unworthy a  brother?"  "Yes;" in such a cold, far-away tone.  He lifted the hand to his lips. "Thank  you, Madeline," he said, as if sho had  done him high honor.  Madeline folt her courago failing her.  How could she listen to him, talk to him,  with anything like sisterly freedom, and  not prove false to hor resolve to further  his cause with Claire? And yet how  could  she  refuse him the trust he asked  of hor?  It was verv pleasant to know that ne  was thus interested in her; she felt herself  slipping quickly into a day-dream in  which nothing was distinct save that  thero existed a bond between them, that  ho had claimed tho right to exorcise authority over her, and that sho was very,  very glad even to be his slave. Listening  to his voice, a smile crept to hor lips, and  "The eyes smiled too,  But  'twas as if'remembering'thoy  had  - wept,  And knowing thoy would some day weep  again."  "T don't intend to givo up my,claims  upon Madeline; I olooted hor my sister,  when 1'brought hor homo with me.

She is painfully sensitive, and possesses an exceedingly nervous temperament;.  Then, that episode.with Davlin was very  humiliating to her, and it is constantly  in her mind.

Ifc will do no good, and harm might como  of ifc."  "Indeed,T will not," said Olive. "How  thankful I am that you were here; your  calmness and tact has saved us something not pleasant. I don't think * I  could-have managed her myself."  "Probably not; and now I will prepare  a soothing and sleeping draught, and  then, as it is late, will detain you no  longor. Perhaps you had better see that  the draught is administered."  Olive gladly accepted the charge, and  shortly after Doctor Vaughan took his  departure, wise and yet blind; blind as  to the true cause of Madel n)'s outbreak  and subsequenb submissiveness.  Madelino obeyed to the lottor the instructions of Doctor Vaughan. As a result, she fell asleep almost immediately,  beforo calm thought had come to dispel  her moud of dreamy happiness.  In the morning she awoke quietod, refreshed, and quite mistress of herself.  She did not once refer to the*events of  the previous "evening.

A  $ ��������� newspaper has no right to lend its  j   columns for the airing  of private  '. . quarrels, and  by  so  doing  would  be the cause of much  unnecessary  -ill-feeling.    "The     greatest   good  .   to the greatest number" is our mot-  ,   to.  ���������    We have telegraphic communica-  nature harnessed to the   street  car  and iiding carriage, and utilized to  light  the streets of .great   cities  as  well as to aid in the most   delicate  surgical operations,  we may   well  be   prepared'for almost  any   announcement in the realm of scientific discovery,   but   it   is   certainly  somewhat startling to  contemplate  the day when we may  walk   along  the streets of a B. C. town and   exchange  greetings with   friends , on  the other  side   of the   continent,  merely by clicking a pocket instrument.    Yet it is this that is  claimed for the new discovery.    And, after all, the principle of the thing is ,  simple enough.-  < ������ Take a vessel of dilute sulphuric  acid and place in it a piece of zinc  and a piece, of   copper.   The   acid  will corrode the zinc, and presently  the temperature of the   vessel   will  become higher.      The chemical action gives rise to heat.    If the zinc  and copper be joined by a wire, the  rapidity of the action becomes great  ly incrersed.    Hence it  might   be  supposed more heat would be pro-  1  duced.    ButtU}his  not the case.  Instead,   the energy that   was,, at  first, expended in raising the , temperature   of the vessel seems   now  changed  to  the   form  of current  passing   through the wire, for   the  air surrounding the wire is strangely affected.    A compass needle will  be attraated and    swerve   round.  Iron filings cling to the wire, and if  it be cut, the ends of the wire will  emit a tiny spark when disconnected.    Dr. Hertz discovered , that , a .  spark of this kind  caused oscillations in the surrounding ether, just  as the impact of a stone oh the surface   of a pond sends waves to   the  shore.    It seemed conceivable  that  c  if some apparatus could be made  delicate enough to detect the presence of these "air wave?," it would  be possible to transmit messages  without the intervention of a- connecting wire.  To secure the proper apparatus  was the.difficulty. All metals are  good conductors of electricity, but  Prof. Branly, while experimenting  with fine metallic powders, found  no   matter how good a conductor  , ing a buttton to '''make and break" the  cunent, in much the same way as the ordinary transmitting instrument in use in  our telegraph offices.  While the waves generated by this instrument can pass through all substances,  yet the resistance met with in penetrating solid bodies dissipates energy very  quickly, ind hence it is necessary either  toexpend a great amohnt of power at  sending station, or else to raise the transmitter and receiver to such a height as  will secure a clear path for the waves.  This has been done by connecting tne re-  ceiver by wire to a metal plate on top   of  1   i' ���������  a high mast. '      ,.  Though others have been earlier in de-  vising apparatus for the   wireless   transmission of mess'sages, yet, toSignor Marconi belongs the credit of being the   first  electrician to practically demonstrate the  feasibility of space   telegraphy.   ' Upon  Salisbury Plain in England, he succeeded  in   sending    messages   over a distance  of four niiles, and  messages   have   been  lately sent over a distance more  than six  *������  times as great.  While it may be long ere the system is  1 L -  perfected, there is little . doubt but that  the day will come when telegraph wires  will be things of the past.

WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY. .  Among the many wonderful discoveries of the 19th century,   space  telegraphy, or the art of  transmit-  |,ting messages from one place to another without the medium  wires, is  perhaps the most remarkable.     In  I an   age that has seen the forces   of  if finely ground,the resistance of the  filings to the passage of electric cur  rents become very great.   He found  that if an electric spark took place  anywhere near the filings, the resistance became greatly decreased, but  if the filings were ever  so   slightly  jarred, the resistance returned.  This discovery formed a key to the  solution of the problem of  detecting  "electric   air   waves."     Prof.  Branley has   constructed   an   extremely simple apparatus   for   the  purpose, which consists essentially  of a glass tube filled with   metallic  filing, having attached to it a small hammer, the object of which is   to   automatically   give a slight tap to the tube   when  the "influence cf   the   electric  spark has  caused tne filings to coheie,and by this jar  cause the filings to aj.ain separate.   Thus  every time an electric spark is emitted at  the transmitter the  filings   will   cohere,  while, when the hammer jars  them   they  will resume their original siite.    By reg  ulatin& the rapidity of the electric sparks,  the dots and dashes of   the Morse alphabet can be easily transmitted. For this instrument Prof. Lodge   has suggested the  name, "coherer."    The transmitter  consists of an apparatus for   generating   the  electric spark, and is operated by press- ���������  CORPORATION _, OF    THE    CITY   OF  cumbei^la^d court OF  REVISION.
