After a lingering and painful  illness, Mrri Kay man,   wife   of    William  Hayman   of   Union,   passed  away at the  hospital in   Victoria.  The deceased   had   undergone   an  operation for   that   dread   disease,  cancer,   and     succumbed    shortly  after the operation, on   Wednesday  afternoon.    She leaves   a husband  aiid a sorrowing   family   of   teven  children to mourn the I03S of a good  and devoted mother.    Mr Hayman  and family left   on   Thursday   for  Victoria    to   attend  -the   funeral,  which took place-at Nanaimo from  the residence of hei parents.      Tie  bereaved children have  the heartfelt sympathy of everyone.  "'Mr. Carev took chhe'f- diploma for_  VC <&<&:  ��������� ������',"'   ., > -,   ������������������',���������<.

Half  the dist-jnee lmd   been  covered
and  as  yet  nn   n:��le of  warning passed   along   the   line.      It     -was     good.
.'Their   spirits   arose,   and   hope     once
vmore  came   to   the  for>;.
Then caine  tho shoc'-c.
"Bludsoe    ' had    started     to     creep
-around  an  angle,   when  his eagle  eye
- detected a  sudden  movement'beyond.
True   to   his   instincts   the  plainsman
i' instantly fiattened���himsel'f out on the
narrow ledge, and none too soon, for
something-    went     hi.ssing      through
-.space  just where  his  body  had  been,
'io bury  itself  in. the depths  below-���
-something  that  cut  the  air  with    a
sound never to     be   mistaken���something that carried  death in its whis-
wtle.    ' . ���      ' '
It was  Zamhodi assegai or spear.
Ordinarily   Jim     would -have   been
; prompt   to     snatch a revolver     from
bis belt, and return the courtesy with
-a  few  leaden   cards  that  must    have
voiced  his  feelings;  but tinder  the peculiar  conditions   he was  averse     to
making     such   a   response   just   now,
���since   it   would   positively  throw    off
the  mask,   and   give  notice   of  their
presence. ��� "
Hence, his first act was to/shuffle
back around the angle, much as a
crab might retreat in the face of
danger. I/uckily there <, was room'
enough between Lord Bruno and inni-
self   to   allow   this' movement.
The line no longer kepi in motion,
but its constituent members came
to a stop, and huddled as close together as the narrow limits of their
looting   would   admit.
All had heard -the, ang:y hiss -ac-
companA ing' the passage of the as-1
segai that had ��hot through blank'
space, and no explanation wras needed. They simply waited ; to hear
what Bludsoe had in, his mind-p-to
carry out any '/suggestions he might
o.Ter.   -
After all, it was T-Iobson's choice,
since to retreat meant in all ,proba-
bility annihilation in the crater, and
they could not stay'where they were.
The two leaders had their heads
together and were busily engaged in
deciding what should be their line
oi action. .Since the alarm had already 'been quietly given, what difference would it make should, thej- take
prompt and decisive action? The
path must be 'cleared at all hazards,
come what, might. Once out of the
great- hole ,ilL would devolve upon
ahem to meet the assault of the
black legions, and where force would
not avail let Anglo-Saxon wit take
its  place.
So the decision was' speedily made
���they muf-t force the passage at all
hazards. , r <
Bludsoe ^again advanced, but this
time he was more ���cautious, knowing-'
that a vindictive foenian crouched
around the sharp angle, nc doubt
with a second ' assegai raised ' and^
ready to be-hurled with all the force"
oi   a   mighty   arm. 'V
,Hex peering-over the hunched shoulders ,of 'Lord Bruno could see that
the cowboy,,had halted just at 'the,
point where the rock turned. He'
appeared busily oi'gaVed with something, and Rex found his curiosity
aroused when he saw.the wind frolic-
ing,with tho long locks .of Jim Bludsoe.
Ah! now ho made "another move,
pushing something out in front, so
as to nfake its presence known
around,the angle, something which at
first was a mystery to Hex. but he
suddenly awoke to the fact1 that it
was the cowboy's head'-goar, fastened to the end of-a torch.
It was a venerable trick,  a regular
old chestnut along the frontier where
'Bludsoe  had  learned 'the  ropes, of hib
trade,  and   one  he might have really
been   ashamed   to   have   been     caught,
practicing,   but  there  was  always  an '
even  chance  that-it  had   not  become'
so  familiar to   the South African  im-'
pis. ' ,'
Again was Jioard that peculiar,
rushing sound, so associated with;
the swift flight of an'assegai from a'
practiced 'hand���the sbmbi'ero" was,
violently sho ken, for Ihe^keen pointed daft had passed entirely through
it with the utmost ease.
Bludsoe laughed outiight at- the
eagei-ness with which Ids black foe-
man above had bitten' at the bait;
but even while thus giving vent to
his appreciation of the good fortune
that had befallen ���, him, the cowboy
was quick to set himself in motion.
Bex saw him creep port way a-
round the angle ��� saw him thro.v
an arm forward, and with the action
came tiie detonation of a seven-
shooter, that v. echoed back and forward, from one wall of the crater to
another, growing- more feeble with
each  rebufl.
It did not die away, -but was
drowned in a human shriek of agony.
Jim had fired with some resuil, and
presently they heard the lifeless body
of the black guard go tumbling from
rock  to  rock  as   it sought  a

In "London Crops   Are Raised in a Barrel
or au Open Umbrella.  -
Miiny people have such a - deeply
rooted love for flowers that they
will go to any amount of trouble to
raise a few blooms even under the
most apparently impossible circumstances.
" Instances of this occur in the East
End of London,',where sometimes the
only available garden is a barrel. In
order to make the most of this,
however, it is bored all over the
sides with holes about two inches' in
diameter, into each' of which a plant
of some description is placed, in addition ,to those planted in ^the usual
way on the top, so that a ^ood display is " obtained, in the ������ninimum
amount of space: These barrels frequently look very 'pretty uiid cfTer--'
the when all the plants ure in
bloom. ��� ���"
Tho statement that there    r.re gardens    under  bedclothes is  Mipporlod
by  no  less  an  authority  than    that
of the Very ltev.  S.  Reynolds Hole,
Dean' of Rochester.   A  district    visitor in-   the Midland,  when    -calling
up"on, a poor   woman,   noticed      how
few  were > the coverings to  1 er'    bed.
Upon being asked, she admitted -that
.she had ''another  blanket,"   and     w.t.&
remonstrated with for 'not using    it,
as the "weather was /bitterly cold.  ,H
at length  transpired  that  her    /husband  had, taken  it  to   cover    . some
plants <  he\ was < rearing in    a tiny
greenhouse/'   in     tlie hope of saving-'
them from being killed by the frost.
Surely      devotion' to "* flowers     ,could
hardly go much-further than this.   .
'   Not    a ,few , suburban householder's
usually"find���their .gardens just ' out-,
"side !theT scullery door,  and  they, exercise";    their .horticultural ingenuity.'
upon ' the     tiny slip, of ground      in'
which ��� ,the considerate -jerry builder
has  carefully     buried its superfluous
half-bricks.   In.  various  parts   of  the"
country.'   notably/' at  Nottingham,
,there   > are     cottage .gardens,^ three'
miles away from 'the residences      of
-their  owners,   so  that' when visitors
are    invited    'to   "come .and have a
look   around   the" garden''   it    means
a somewhat lengthy excursion.. These
small 1- -allotments   ,are,   (   however,
greatly appreciated and' carefully' aTL-
tended,    "despite , the fact  that
time"'taken  in  getting '-.o  i.rid

gone to, decay, has been long .known

the sculpture is of the early Norman

Just think what a hqrrible receptacle

there are carpets, people should on entering be given slippers, as in the Netherlands, or the footbath, as at a Turkish mosque. Making servants sweep,

6 Ansemia, or thin, ��� watery blood, is increasing to an alarm,

breath, palpitation of" the heart, attacks of vomiting, swooning-, ;
hysteria and irregularities of the feminine organs are among the
unmistakable symptoms of anaemia or .poor qualify of blood.      ;
Anaemic persons are frequently said to be gbing into a decline, and as a fact do- usually contracts consumption or some
fatal constitutional disease if they 'neglect to restore norma]

"One must 'hear constantly in mind  the possible effect of his course of action  upon the animals he is handling and tho  ^construction which their reasoning or instinct, or whatever you choose to call it  is likely to put upon his acts.  ."I had a seyere illustration of that in  Kansas City. Owing to an error on the  ��������� part of the workmen Mine. Pianska's  large cage was misplaced, and I found  that her lions would have to'perform in  a similar one. This change'of stage setting is one of the things that performing  animals particularly^hate, and she had a  good deal.of trouble.  "Finally she got them all working in  the smaller cage except one lioness, usually a   good- subject,   who chanced  to  be  sulky that day.    Coaxing wouldn't move  ber, so.i was appealed to and went into  the cage.   After some difficulty I got her  majesty to go over her jumps all  right,  ������nd I kept her hustling around the rim?  pretty lively to take some of the temper  out of her.  "In my hand I held a riding whip, and  v -"Sust for a flourish 1 tapped it smartly on  the ground.    There was no sense in the  action,   and   if   1   had   thought   twice. I  wouldn't have done it. Twenty feet away  from me, near Mme. Pianka. the lioness'  mat(j   was   standing,   watching   me   with  dubious eyes.    Probably he thought when  I tapped the whip on the ground that 1  was  laying  it ou   the lioness.    Anyway  he covered the 20 feet in one bouud aud  pinned me through the fleshy part of the  thigh.  "Down I went. The lion picked me up  nnd carried me over to Mme. Pianka for  her approval. She had in her hand the  revolver which she uses in her act. and  she lired the blank charge close to the  lion's ear. at the same time catching him  . around the neck. .  "That was one of the poses in his act,  nnd fortunately it caught his mind, and  the force of habit brought him to instant  obedience. He relaxed.his hold; giving  me a chance to get to my feet, and. I ran  him around the cage three or. four times  Dust to show him I was still master' and  then went to bed. The teeth hadn't  touched the bone, and 1 was up and  around in three weeks.

I have been asked several times lately at what* date the common English  sparrows were imported into the United States and by whom.  ' It, seems that the first attempt was  made in 1S5S by a private citiz-en of  Portland, Me. In the fall of that year  he liberated-six sparrows, and they immediately made themselves at home  in his garden and outbuildings. For a  few years these birds and ,their descendants were seen in and about the  town in small squads. .These birds  multiplied until in the winter of 1S71  a flock of them appeared in every nearby, town,.thus showing their tendency  to spread over adjoining territory.  ��������� About 1SG0 12 birds were imported  and/liberated near Madison .square,  New York city, and this "was repeated  for several seasons. .  In 1SG4 the commissioners of New  York liberated 14 birds in Central park.  About this time'numerous'persons returning from abroad ' brought a few  birds home and set them at liberty in  and about Jersey City. '      ,   '  The'craze, for importing these birds  spread^ and' In 1SG8 the' city government of Boston imported a great number.' But tbe birds had not been,carefully handled, and they did not thrive,  and others were -brought over. The  birds which survived from these various' importations were carefully fed'  and'.looked after- by the city government. ' ' " ��������� >'���������',/. - .

The  proprietor  of  one  of  the  new  apartment  houses  near  Fifth  avenue  has paid  a  rather heavy penalty  for  having a cartoonist as one of his tenants.   The artist wanted some changes  made in the  decoration of his apartment, and tbe  proprietor declined  to  make them.    The proprietor's features  are   pronounced,   and   he  wears  long,  flowing side whiskers.    His face, distorted   to  Guit   the  cartoonist's  fancy,  has appeared nearly every week in one  of tbe comic  papers.    Sometimes the  proprietor   figures  as  the   villain  and  again as the countryman who is bunkoed every week in the pages of this  publication.     The  cartoonist  lets   the  whiskers   grow- from   week   to   week;  then, just as his victim imagines that  they will grow so long that bis friend  will not recognize him, the artist trims  the whiskers down again.   The proprietor of the apartment house has concluded that the only, way in which he  can get even with the cartoonist is to  put in a bill for services as model.  Reasoning by Analogry.

During the nineteenth century 235  new comets were discovered as against  02 in the eighteenth century. Tbe-  nineteenth century also beheld a greater number of largo and brilliant comets than did its predecessor. The finest  of these were the comets of 1S11, 1843.  1S5S, 1SS1 and 1S82. In the year 1S0O  only' one periodical comet was known,  Halley's.

The more corn there is put into, the  silo the greater will be the value of the  'product removed from the silo. There  is a popular notion that the ensilaging  of corn adds something to its, value  which is not contained In the original  material. This notion , is wrong, and  the greater the feed value of the product put into the silo the greater will be  the value of the ensilage. Corn.should  be planted for the silo but little if any  CORN PLANTED, FOR TIIE SILO  thicker on the ground than it should be  planted where the object is to produce  grain.' Corn'is distinctively a, sun plant,  and if it is so thickly seeded that the  sun cannot reach all parts cf the grow-  ;'lng; plant there is'produced a product  which Is lacking in digestibility and  .which Is not relished by farm stock.  A few years ago. some experiments  ���������were conducted by the Cornell exprri-  _ ment station, the objectdicing to deter-'  inine'whati method   of, planting  corn  ^produced greatest. food value. ' Cert :i in  plats were-drilled in thickly so that nc ,  iears would develop,  other plats  were ,  , 'planted, with the rows 40, inches apart  - and '���������with tbe plants close together in  thp row, and other plats were planted  ' In hillfi-from 3 to '6V-> t'yet apart.    While  .a larger quantity oi produce  was ol>-  - tallied ,per acre   where  tin- corn   was  '.drilled' in  thickly,  yet   It  coii*aim,d  a  -higher per cent of-moisture ami was de-'  ik-ient in protein and iu fat.  While the- money 'Value of tbe broad-  , casted corn is not very different from  "the value cf thnt'"grown on the other  *piat, this estimate does not take into  "a<-count, tlit*'digestibility of tho various  products."  The  variety of corn  which shall  bo  planted'must be determined somrwhaf  by-local   conditions.     In  <entralf'~Now  -York the.Pride of tbe North givos^very  "patisfactory results.

Thus it makes the  powerful or "kicking" part of most ex-  {���������losives, as it gets away from a combination as quickly as pofsiblp. In fertilizers it must be combined with other  pi: Instances in order to be useful, and  ammonia Is a combination of nitro-  gfii with another gas called hydrogen.  The hydrogen bangs on to the nitrogen  *>*,! holds, it in place and foi-m. It  takes three parts of hydrogen to bold  one part of nitrogen, and this proportion is always found in ammonia. Nitrogen weighs ,14 times as much as hydrogen. Therefore, says Rural Now  Yorker, in one pound of ammonia there  will be fourteeu-fieventeonths^ 82.35 P'*r  cent, or 13.17 ounces, of nitrogen. You  should never buy fertilizer ou tbe basis  of its ammonia, but figure out the actual nitrogen.  ! A L.ea������Sln������r OMo  Stave Silo.

"Of course, the baby must go." said  grandmother when I suggested the ride,  so that put me on the back sr-at as chief  cook and bottle washer.  The spring, is a delicious, fresh and'  sweet smelling time to go out to ride in  the country. lS I always plan to take the  air that way once or twice with my wife  whether I need it or not. for I love to see  the violets bloom, to hoar the chickadees  chick and soe the crow at his work helping the corn to come up. ���������  "Go up stairs," ah;o said the child's  grandmother, "and on the,left hand .side  of the top drawer of the chiffonier in  the blue room in a small box marked  'spoons' and tied with a pink cord you  will" find a nip"��������� Hut'I was off before  the word could be said. It wasn't there,  but, as I later found, was in the blue box'  tied with a white cord ou the right hand  side of the drawer in the red room.  "Now, run up while I hold the horse���������  whoa, sir; stand still���������aad bring down  the peppermint bottle and tho food."     '  I did that, and while I was at it I had  the forethought to get a few things.  i       I  had the curbing lined up with- para-  '���������  phernalia for about a"block, and to my  mind the expedition  was ready<��������� to start.  It looked like a trip 'to 'discover the north  v/~ pole.    I had the sterjlizer and the patent  ��������� 'food   warmer,   the   peppermint,   flagroot.

Rev. J. J. Sutherland, - M. A.,  writes in Toronto Sunday ,AVorld:  In the Christianity of our time a  steadily enlarging- place is being  given to reason. This speaks -well  for the age,' and it augurs well - for  the future of Christianity.  Hoason is safe and good everywhere else, why should it not be in  religion? We distrust the" man, the  utterance, the scheme, the ; , theory  thai is not reasonable; why' should  we not distrust' the' religion that does  not commend' itself to reason? 3s  ��������� not man's reason from God? Is not  God_ himself the Infinite, Reason?  How, then, can true religion bo irrational? And why should we not  bring all'religion to the test of reason? Not that reason''is the only  test that should be applied. Religion  should be tested by its moral    qual-  * ity,- and especially by its practical  fruit in the life. But why should it  not also be subjected, to the test of  rationality? ' '  We are 'told that above reason r   is  ., revelation,   and  that  this  is     man's  "guide ' and 'supreme test -of      truth.  But  can -revelation  be  above  reason  *, in any sense that allows it to be-irrational  or'to  trample under      foot  tho'reason of man?; Is' not-God    ra-  ���������'��������� tiohai?/ "If revcjlation    comes     from  'Go"dj~must it^not be.a reasonable revelation?   And  if  fundamentally    irrational 'elements  are found to      b������  ��������� connected with-it do,they'  not,,   .at  once; create a suspicion    that'    they  '_ are extraneous, elements;,  originating  '* elsewhere  than  in  the perfect Divine,  ��������� . "Wisdom? Ho'w can we tell what is a  ,   revelation from God except    by the  use ' of our ���������   reason?    And when we  '  have accepted a revelation how   can  we" interpret its  contents except    in  the light of the same faculty?    Thus  ,we(\see that the growing- recognition  t of reason in connection with religion  is-not  an'accident, 'but  a necessity.  It" is the'result of-man's growing intelligence.   It  means* religious     progress.    .''-.<��������� ^   >  ,   ri Oi course,  we have to confess      at  ��������� every step t that there are ' many  things above man's comprehension.  Truth is infinite, man's mind is finite.* However far man may push    out  . his voyagings in search of knowledge, . a boundless ocean of the  ���������".Canst thou by searching      find out  ,'3,God?; Canst' thou.find out the Almighty to perfection? It is high as-  ���������heaven, what canst thou do? It is  deeper     than, the grave,   what  canst  far has been good; it will be better  still as it makes itself more fully  felt. It will purify religion of much  that - is untrue; superstitious and  harmful. It will win to religion many  thoughtful men and women who have  long been repelled by irrational theologies, it will remove causes of antagonism toward religion - which  have existed in the' minds of many  .scientists. It  will  lift  religion  up  into the' light, and give it new 'attractiveness   and  power.  COOKING WATCHES.  The  Canadian quail  has  been    suc-  ���������'.s&juJly j<f-fhni.-"i2-ed   in   Sweden.  thou know?"' Abysses are everywhere that man cannot fathom.  Heights are everywhere that he cannot scale. But this does not mean  . that there is any region where'-reason does not hold sway. This does  not absolve man from obligation to  his own rational nature. Much that  is above and beyond the power of his  reason fully to grasp or understand,  he may well accept. But whatever  plainly contra diets his reason, that,  if he would honor the Creator who  'has given him his reason, and if I e  would preserve the integrity of Jus  . .own soul,-.he must not accept, or  even try to accept.  -The association of the irrational  '.with religion always tends to pvo-  "duce ' skepticism, infidelity, a'heism,  the rejection of religion. In lands  where religion is superstitious, the  ignorant accept it, but the intelligent largely turn their backs upon  it and 'drop it out of their lives. As  religion grows more icasonable, tnd  purges itself from irrational elements'with which it has '.-ng been  associated, infidelity grows less.  "Emerson says, "There is -1 statement of religion possible which  makes all skepticism absurd." As  reason more and more enters into  religion in Christian lands we arc  gradually approaching Mu.h :; statement.  Much of what the past has called  unbelief and condemned as a sin has  not been a sin at all, but a legitimate and commendable exercise of  human intelligence. It has been a refusal to believe the irrational. The  impression is common that believing  is a pre-eminently religious form of  mental activity. But whether it is  religious or irreligious depends upon  the thing believed. To believe a lie  is not religious...To believe the irrational, or the self-contradictory is  not religious. It is as much a religious duty to refuse to believe . the  false, the unreasonable and the degrading, as it is to believe the noble,  the reasonable and the true.  Religion has long feared reason,  and in some quarters fears it still.  Some time it will learn that what  it ought to fear is not reason but  absence of reason.  I do not: mean to convey the impression that reasonableness is. all  that religion needs. Far from that.  Any religion that is to regenerate  human society, must be deeply alive  with faith, hope, love, enthusiasm of  humanity, and consciousness of the  presence and power of God. I only  urge that to ;these elements it must  add reasonableness, if it is to do the  work that is required in an age of  growing ' light and knowledge like  ours.  Reason will more and more , come  into "religion. Nothing can keep it  out. Nor ought it to be kept out, because it is of God.  Its influence      so  Chocolate.  In South America the'retail price for  the better grades of chocolate averages  about $1 a pound, while 'in 'Italy,  France, England and in the United  .States the better grades sell at a much  ldwer price. In America'the ordinary  chocolate of trade sells' for about one-  third of the price that is charged for it  where it is produced. The, cause of  this, the producers say, is that the  original product is adulterated greatly  before . reaching its final market, a  cheaper article than' the cocoa bean  constituting the' large proportion of 90  per cent of the chocolates of commerce.  The cocoa bean from which chocolate  is manufactured is produced in its' finest form in Venezuela, though various  other parts of Central and South America grow and export large 1 quantities.'  Two crops 'of' the bean are gathered  each year, and the manufacture consists simply in grinding up t'he'beans  into a meal and then adding,sugar and  arrowroot, with the necessary^ flavor,  usually'vanilla or cinnamon. 'The mass  is moistened until .it is in a semifluid  state, after "which it is,run iuto molds  of the proper shape.  ,  Battered Side  Up.  One of the stories which Levi Iluteh-  ins, the'-old" lime clockmaker, of Concord. N. II., delighted to tell related to  the youth of Daniel Websterl'  "One day," said the old man,- "while  I was taking breakfast at the tavern  kept by,DanieI's father. Daniel and his  brother- EzekicI, who were little boys  with dirty faces and snarly hair, came  to the table and asked me for bread  and butter.'  '  ','1 complied with their request, little  thinking that they would become very  distinguished men. Daniel dropped-  his piece of- bread on the sandy floor,  and the buttered��������� side' of course was  down. He looked at it a moment, then  picked it up and showed it to me, say-  ing: . ,    ���������  " 'What a pity! Please give me a  piece of bread buttered on both side?;  then, if 1 let.'it fall one of tbe buttered  sides will be up.''.' \, ".'*'  Entertaining- Sanirrels.  Alive in his native woods the squirrel  is an amusing little fellow7, and ho will  entertain you by the hour if you will  let him.  You probably become first aware of  his presence by his dropping things on  your head. Then he plays hide and  seek with you as he zigzags up a tree.  While he pauses for thought, or possibly to wash his face, another squirrel  comes scudding along the branches of  a'neighboring tree, and away they go,  one chasing the other, jumping from  branch tip to branch tip, racing up and  down the trunk and making the bark  fly. Sometimes one loses his footing  and falls headlong 20 or 30 feet to the  ground, landing there with a force that  makes him bounce. You think every  grain of sense must be knocked out of  the smallr body, but he only blinks a  bit, and, after a'moment spent perhaps  in letting the stars set that must have  suddenly risen before1 his eyes, he  streaks it up the nearest tree after the  other fellow.1 Long after they have  disappeared from sight you hear them  chattering together up among the  leaves like two  watchmen's  rattles.  "Tlie Beggrar's  Opera."  Gay's "Beggar's Opera" may be considered a comedy. IT is very witty and  very wicked. It makes a jest of crimp  and at the same time tends to sot mon  against men. Probably it was altogothc-i  written by Gay, though it is above his  average. But Gay was a follower of  Swift and Fopo, and tho influence of  Swift appears to be discernible in it. So.  perhaps, the play was in some measure  the work of that strange author, though  not actually, written by him. Pope says  that the play was Gay's own writing, but  acknowledges that he and Swift gave  now aud then a correction or a word or  two of advice. This interference may or  may not have had a great effect on tho  character of the whole play. One docs  not know. Fielding's "Jonathan Wild"  must have been suggested by "The Bog-  gar's Opera." Peachum is like Jonathan  Wild, and there are. other similarities.  Gay may be easily credited with tho  whole authorship without the aid of his  powerful friends of the inferior sequel,  "PoUv "���������x:----   .   ��������� ' '  Circumstantial Evidence.

Koiv  Ki;������lisJi Timepieces Are Treated   in  Ivew Ouservatoi-j���������Ic Takes 4.> -Days,  Jiut   It I* "Done  V. ell.    '  Ivew Observatory has lately- been  much in the public mind consequent  upon the tnreatened derangement of  its delicately made instruments by  the 'installation of electric tramways  at Hammersmith, some miles distant".  The very position of the observatory is ample testimony to the sensitiveness of the wonderful machines  it contains. Situated about two  miles from Kichmond, the' solitary  building- stands like a beacon in'the  midst of ,a far-stretching sea of 'meadow land. But the' observatory is  more than ' a home magnetic mystery.     They cook watches there.  Jf you contemplate buying'an. expensive watch you can have it sent  to tlie observatory, where for forty-  five days it will undergo an" ordeal  that will test its capability to the  utmost.  The branch of the observatory where  this interesting operation is carried  'on 'is known as the rating department of the national physical laboratory. , The observer, E. G. Constable, explainpd to a representative of  The Daily Mail who visited the observatory ��������� that about GOO. watches  are tested ' yearly, and that 3 0,100  have passed < through their hands  since  the department  was  opened.  On this particular day forty  watches were under observation. An  ambitious watch in pursuit'of a  first-class 'certificate commences its  career at Kew by standing upright  for five days in an ordinary safe. It  spends a similar period in three'-othere positions, and , is then placed on  its'back in1 -a refrigerator. After  ,five days of that icy abode it is removed to an oven kept at'a'temperature of 90-degrees Fahrenheit,-'"and  is at last restored 'to a normal temperature. All this time the 'wa'tch-  fuFeye of 'the observer has been upon  it;- and the watch's behavior' duly  * no ted in books. '   '  Every variation of a second the  watch makes in the different positions  and'temperatures is carefully-entered,  and certain marks for or "against are  given it. What .this means will be  the better appreciated when it'.is explained' that Kew possesses instruments capable of indicating the hundredth part of a second.      '    '   7  The highest marks awarded 'to 'a  watch are 100, and if it gains over  SO the words* ���������'especially good" are  written on this certificate when( the  watch leaves the observatory: Last  year the lowest marks-received by a  Watch were 44, and the highest 90.1"-  Thc latter was English made.  Quite', a number, of watches were in  the oven stage. The,oven is an .ordinary safe, heated with a tubular  boiler, and over it a- constant 'sii'Pp]yc  of hot' water is kept. The refrigera-"  tor is< of the ordinary kind.  ' All kinds of watches were there.  There was an <explorer's watcli", so  watertight that it'would keep, on  ticking merrily at the bottom of the  sea. There was the watch of an important official of the National Cy-*  clists' Union, which splits seconds to  infinitesimal degrees, and comes to  Kew every -tear. In racing, time is  not accepted as official unless the  -watch has gained a ICew certificate.

But the most remarkable watch  that has ever been "baked" or "frozen" at - Kew cost close upon ������3,-  000. It was bought by a sportsman  with his winnings in one horse race.  The owner's monogram on the outer  case was surrounded with twenty-  four diamonds and a picture of the  horse appeared on the other side in  enamel, the artist having spent a  week in the stables to get an accurate drawing.,  The watch, however, proved to be  useful as well as ornamental, and  Kew wa.s able to send its distinguished visitor home accompanied by a  certificate worthy of its position  the  watch   world.���������London  Mail.  LEARNINGA TRADE.  The Danger  of -Staliinc ce,  Specialist  of a Beginner. >  It is generally to 'the interest of an  employer that an apprentice should not  'learn- his trade as a whole, but onl������ a  ^little section of it, says Joseph Horner  In Cassier's Magazine. It pays better  to keep a lad repeating the performance of one section of his craft than  to teach him all., More money is made.  But the apprentice becomes a young  specialislt, a prig in his teens, cocksure  over some, little piece of handicraft at  which he may earn'something over his  normal wages, and many a lad does  not become disillusioned until he has'to  face the, world and try" his luck in  other shops.     <    '   ,    ,  And therefore the best shops in  which to place a'lad are not the big establishments, but the small ones, wh'er'e  every class of work'is done and where  tools and appliances are often scant.  A lad will learn more in these than 'in  those replete with every appliance and  minutely subdivided into sections,and  groups. '  The best training for a lad today is  that which ho can evolve for "himself.  The greatest evil that can befall him  is to become a'specialist and1 nothing  more,while in his teens." Yet that is  what must happen if he spends several -  years' tending -machines or doing 'repetitive, unvarying tasks in one big establishment/      -' , -   '  The best training, therefore', today'is  that^gathered by the peripatetic youth.'  If n. lad cannot gain,experience in 6ne������  place, he should move/about,' gathering '  as much as he can -.accumulate with  one firm; then on'���������to another, and attending training schools as opportunity-  offers.  ,His views beco-iine broadened;  he becomes self reliant, and' iii time,  having fouud.. his true work, he may  settle down as a specialist. ->   _  NOT WORTH TWO  PASSES,  DRESSYUP FOR SUICIDE.''  Said to Be an Invariable Rule "\yith.  1 Women 'Seeking Death.  "If I should ever be called upon to  furnish indisputable proof of athe inherent pride' of woman," said a police  sergeant, "I would point at onceto her  invariable rule of dressing "up in her  best clothes when she goes out. to commit suicide. In^my experience on the  force I have had occasion, to handle a  good many suicides and afterward .investigate their personal, affairs,.and in^  every instance I have found ttiat the  poor unfortunates prepared themselves  for death by donning, their best bib and,  tucker.        _ *     ���������   *      '  "The majority of the printed reports  of suicides say that.the clothes of the  dead-woman were 'good' or 'well madG*i  or 'elegant.' If the woman contemplating suicide owns a" silk waist, she  wears it. .Her broadcloth skirt and silk  petticoat naturally go with this "garment, and she selects her best shoes.  "I have looked up1 the history of  many of these respectably clad suicides  and have found that thoy owned but  one gown with which they could make  a decent appearance on tbe street and  that that one good dress was chosen  without exception as the appropriate  garb in which to make the exit from  this world's stage. It makes no difference what manner of death,is chosen,  the costume is carefully selected.  ^"Let a woman sleep her life away under the influence of drugs or burn her  soul out with acids or sink into the  slime of the river, she clothes herself in  her most becoming garments and seeks  the end with apparent tranquillity.  Her instinct of gentility and elegance  in clothes is with her to the last, and  even in the face of death she shrinks  from a public appearance in unbecoming raiment."

The Leibnitz range attains enormous  altitudes above the average level of the  moon's surface and is sometimes seen  projected far beyond the regular curvature of disk, thus destroying the circular contour and giving it a notched or  serrated aspect.

So commou are passenger elevators  now and so absolutely necessary in'the  tall office buildings that the history of  the first one has been almost forgotten,  and yet it created a sensation in its  day. This elevator was placed in the  Fifth Avenue hotel in New York when  it was built, and as the first passenger  elevator in the world it was a drawing  card as one of the sights of New York.  A small plate suitably inscribed informs visitors to thq Fifth Avenue hotel elevators today of that fact. It was  a screw elevator, the carriage being  raised or lowered by the revolutions of  a big screw. Compared with the swift  moving elevators of today, which shoot  up and. down rapidly and smoothly,  this was a very crude affair. Many of  New York's private houses are now  equipped with elevator's so adjusted  that the passenger operates them by  pushing a button.' These are'practically automatic.  His  Point  of Vierr.

There was a ceremony of an  unusually impressive character when  a body of warlike and stately sheiks,  mounted upon 'their camels, -arrived  at the palace. They had ridden for  600 miles from their country far up  'the ^Vhite Nile, and���������thcir journey had  lasted three months.- There was in  the-embassy , seven , of the greatest  sheiks and one woman' of 'the highest  rank, alf belonging to- an ancient  tribe of Dinkas, , whom* ethnologists  regard as the aboriginal 'inhabitants  of that part of Africa, 't ' ,,  1 .The Dinka embassy of sheiks; which  had   ' obtained     permission   ^o .visit  Khartoum,    received    /a "ceremonious  welcome,   from   ," Lord   Cromer' when  they arrived at the palace, after they  ,.had announced tliat it was their pur-  *pose to.pay homage-'to him. \ As .the  ;representative of'British Majesty,  he  offered',   them ) welcome-in the Arab'  language,     assuring  them  that'-they  Would-be  protected,   that  their'welfare would surely'- be promoted under  the * Anglo-Egyp ti an ' rule,   that' tliey  would" never - again" have occasiorr'to,  'feai: -the' slave dealer- or, slave driver,  ,an6T^"L the   , British  troops   (who  had  ,been ''drawn  up and set, in array for  the -   occasion)    would'    guard their  country as a,part of-great Egypt.

(  , >  Next day they began to' prepare for  the long journey up the White Nile  and back to thPir'own country.  c It appears that neither the sheiks  nor tlie other members of the Dinka  clan are either of tlie Arab race or  the Mohammedan religion. They arc  an autochthonous people, and it" is  probable that they are descended  from ancestors who lived in their  country long before Moses led ' the  enslaved Hebrews out of Egypt. ;They  worship one God and possess saGred  rites that antedate any history.  Their language, religion, and customs are peculiarly their own.  The1 interesting fact has been  brought to notice that such ceremonies as occurred during Lord Cromer's  last durbar at Khartoum were "but  repetitions of ceremonies that had  been witnessed in ancient -Egypt under the rule of the Pharaohs.

C. 1450)  at Soleb. and also those on the temples of 1-Jameses II. (B. C. 1330), in  Nubia, and likewise those on the  temples of later Egyptian kings at  Napata, prove that exactly the sams  kind of ceremonial homage was rendered to successive rulers of ancient  Egypt, after they had, each of them  in his time. crushed the Soudani  tribes in order to extend the frontiers  of tho great kingdom."  And so the Din lens of the earliest  ages live again in the Dinkas of to-  dpy. The clan of the Upper Nile  once sub'oct to the king who was  lost in the Rod Sea, is now under the  rule   of  Edward   VII.   of  England.
