Bailer's speech yes-  erday, before the King's  Rifles on  the ������South African  situation,   co, i-  tinues to grow.- . In . his   remarks  Gen.    BuHeir   complained - of   the  general,criticism   on, the   part   of  newspapers regarding  the fighting  in South Africa, especially those reflecting upon himself.,,.   He, admitted'he had advised Gen. SirGeorge  White that it   would   possibly   be  necessary to surrender  Lady smith,  and he would trust  the   public   to  judge the justifiability   of  the   attacks.    The speech is tbe one   topic  of discussion and there  is   general  anticipation that disciplinary measuresc will  follow   unless   General  Buller himself takes the advice  of  such a  Conservative   supporter   of  the government   as .the  Standard,  aud resigns.    The tone of the press  is'generally one of surprised amaze  uoent at  his   indiscretions.      The  people of England  have   generally  stuck to him throughout,   and  his  wife's   social   influence   has   been  powerful,   and even   reached   the  court.    It had been decided that he  would be elevated to the peerage on  the next honor list, but it is doubtful now,  alter yesterday's   confession" that he advised tbe surrender  of Ladysmith, "a humiliation compared with which," as the Standard  says, "all other reverses of the war  would ,have   been   trivial,"    that  either the King or the people will  continue to'favoir him.   ,.  .���������'... -:/ ���������       :;<:V   ���������'"'������������������' VU  -bird&rin the closed season,is quickly^  fined to the full extent of the law.  VVhy, then, should"the possessor of  thousands of birds at a  forbidden  > time go free?-   There is no equity in  punishing small offenders and  let-  >.     |      Y.  'ting larger ones go..   Such a policy  would directly promote law break-  ing.  ,- It/ would y,encourage ^petty  offenders to become great offenders,  and thus wm immunity.    The safe  and rational and juat   rule   is   to  punish  all    impartially,   making  "the punishment fit the crime," in  exact proportion to the magnitude  of the latter.    Either the wholesale  law breaker should be punished, or  the retail law breaker should   not  be punished. Either the law should  be enforced and game be protected,  or the law should be abolished and  game be exterminated.  There can be no question   as to  the desirability of maintaining and  enforcing the law for the protec ion  of game.   It would be a grievious  loss if through  indiscriminate  and  ruthless slaughter any of the large  game birds were  exterminated,  as  they soon would ba   without  legal  protection.    But it is   also   to   be  borne in mind   that  among' game  birds   eo   called   there   are   many  small birds  which   not  only   are  highly prized for their beauty  aud  song, but also are invaluable as destroyers of insect   pests.      In   late  years, moving pari passu with  the  wholesale slaughter of  birds, there  have c jme upon us  literal   plagues  of insects, loathesome and destructive.    City and country   this  year  have been defiled   and ravaged  by  caterpillars as never before  in   the  memory of man.

If  these statements are correct,   it is  clear   that   something substantial  should be done to ensure the safety.  of life and> property.   It   must   be   o  borne in mind however, that some  of the threshingengines now in use -  are too   heavy   for   any   common������  bridge to carry without risk ofdain*  age, and due attention   should   be  paid to this by the owners.  AO'  EUBOTBIOITY.  At the Council meeting Monday,  Mr Geo. Clinton  made   a   proposition to install   an   electric   light  plant to supply the   city  and   suburbs with that now indispensable  commodity.    His plan is such that  it is more than probable it will receive the endorsement of the   city  fathers, as by it they will   be   able  to reap a decided   benefit   for   the  city, without having the worry of  the   undertaking themselves, and  running any   risk.     Mr   Clinton  proposes   to   have   the   company  purely local, if this  can   be   done,  and promises that the cost will  not  exceed that charged hy any of the  other coast oi ties.

Hex and "Lord Bruno, accompanied by Bed Eric formed one of  the parties As the cliffs were outlined in silhouette against the clouded sky, the:, were able to distinguish  to a certain extent at least, what  the nature of their face might be.  The passage of the semicircle was  made without disaster of any sort,  though several times glimpses _wcre  had of fire "signals on the heights,  which' warned them that the black  clans must be gathering w ith the idea  of crushing the daring invaders. ,  Thus they met the other party, and  hasty views were exchanged, after  which it was determined just where  an assault upon the cliffs promised  the best chances of success.

In tlie Sunset Time Happy Are tlse  Ttto Who Can Sit Togrether and  Dream of the Long: Journey, WitU  Us Jlougrli and Smooth Spot*, They  Have Hade Side by Side. ,  The wedding anniversaries of the aged  are especially rich in memories and in  the'^sumniing up of the value ot wedded  life as apart from all their other relations  to the world or to humanity, that inde-  ' scribable line of separation from every  other tie and interest which a husband  and wife feel so 6trongly when they say  "we" and mean the dual life which' is  yet one in mysterious' unity. The wed-  ' ding day reminiscences cling together  within that close drawn boundary, and  they lie in the daintily adjusted scales iu  ���������which we weigh life's values. The heart  asks, What have all these years brought  to me? These joys, these hopes so often  unrealized, these deep felt trials,-these  sometime discords, these intensities of  emotion, births, deaths, meetings and  partings���������what have they left me? Hap-  p? they who can say "left us."  Two aged people sitting, together, hand  in hand, recalling the past, make one 'of  the loveliest pictures which we see in our  intercourse with, men and ^woirien, and  . there are very, few <who,'������rc;caaining thus  united after, sharing the stress and strain  of < life's battle, will' riot'say fervently,  "Life is.'indeed worth living."   ������ '  ,  " What a harvest field'it has been!* How  every day in all these long years has contributed its portion to the weaving of the  great tapestry ��������� at which they worked  without seeing one design! "��������� Now, witb  ' its < face'turned toward them, they see  what it all means���������rich,',glowing color  where joy'and ardor and prosperity guided the,needle; spots of faded brightness  s, where tears had washed the weaver's material with such salt floods that it had'lost  ' all charm, yet now lending tender contrast to the sunshine paths. Yes, each  ���������was needed in its place, and nothing  would l have been perfect without tho  countervailing influence, of light upon  shade, of grief on too vivid joy.  , I do not  believe that any day in our  personal calendars has so much import at  the anniversary of our wedding day. Our  '   birthdays,are of feeble value in compari  son," and the heart does not then so qucs'  tion itself as,to what share .we have had  in the outcome of theyears.    Had I been  more j-ieldiug there, had I been more ten  der^at that critical time, had I been brav  er,  more true  to  my  convictions,  more  i   willing to bear temporary displeasure for"  future good���������how questions rush ,to  the  lips while the great roll unfolds itself ami  ywe see the past as we could not see thai  , present which can never be recalled!  But .where is there such a harvest as  comes'.from a long,-loving, wedded life?  Those  single detached  men  and  woin������n  ���������whom we know, reaching out after some  satisfying   verity-\to   fill   the   hunger   of  1   their   hearts���������sister's   children,   ait.   sci  ence.   public   charities���������look   so   pat.Vtir  when put in the balance with tho ileeplj  moving, intense emotion  of tho^e who^<  every word  and  act had a  reflex  action  upon another heart and soul and in whos?  influence and character lay the pns-.ibili  ties of good or evil lo a-nature indissolu  c bly united to its own.  What   autumn    festival   is    like   thai  which a devoted old couple keep togeth  er? 'Their vintage is over, but th? gond  wine  their   love   pressed   from   the   rich  grapes of their young lives warms tin it  veins    now,*   and    no    winter   can   chill  them.     Children   and   children's  children  call them by name, and no wind of povcr  ty.can rob them of their chief treasures,  There is something.most touching notice  able  in  the  self  satisfaction  shown   by  very aged people if they outlive the onii  nary  limit of united   lives.     The golden  anniversary of 50 years brings ort oven  a recurrence to some token of bridal or  nament, and if 60 years are allotted there  really  seems to  be  a  show- of   personal  pride, as if they were in themselves mori  torious so long to remain in happy unity,  an example to the young.  ' The  large  majority  of old  folk have,  alas, to abide alone after death has taken  the other half of their lives into the land  which no man can enter without his aid  Lonely they may look; set apart and sep  arate they must feel; maimed and halting  they must go on until the strong, teuder  hand of the releasing angel leads thorn  within the veil.    But to these also there  appertains an aftermath.    No arid place  can   come  into   hearts  that   have   been  nourished   by   faithful,   pure,    unselfish  love.    Tie who goes forth in the morning  for the abbreviated labor of his failing  strength   misses   the   audible   voice   of  blessing and the tender touch which sent  him cheerfully forward in happier days,  but he is not destitute of the influence of  what,  being once  his,  cannot ,be taken  from him.   The door docs not close without a gentle echo of the "voice that is  still"  being spiritually  heard,  and  "the  vanished hand" has left an imprint which  will always cling to him.    He ,is never  really alone in truth.    Love does not pass  out  and   away   from   lives  hallowed   by  fidelity and unceasing tenderness.    Lonely he is, but not alone.  And where many a white haired woman sits silent in the sunset hour'of her  wedding day, with the setting sun symbolizing her life in its bright, steadfast  radiance, you will ofte������ see an expression of peaceful serenity upon her face,  and it needs no interpreter to explain  that she is dwelling in close companionship with that which, though unseen by  others, is integrally a part of her very existence. She also knows that the essence of that happiness which made her  so proud of her titles of wife and mother  is unquenchable, and her sunset hour is  sustained by the harvest of her faithful  yonrs.  There seems a magnetism in these eloquent though fading lives which ought to  be an appeal to a higher and nobler estimate of married life. These sweet times  of later harvest have come not to the  querulous, the irritable, the selfish,' the  unreasonable. The married life which  has been spent in endeavor each to control and absorb the vital individuality of  the other leaves no sustaining power for  this soft after growth which is so priceless when strength fails and the hand  loses its cunning.���������New" York Post. -  SUCCE.SS.

A constructive rather than a destructive force implied by the name is "the  man with the ndze.'Vwho Is'sometlmes  seen by early comers to the meat1 markets.  ' Most persons have doubtless observed the large blocks upon which butchers trim their steaks aud chops.'   The  top of the block is usually as^ smooth  ,.as glass, but the constant chopping of  meat "thereon   roughens   the. surface  eventually.   The general idea seems to  .be that  the butcher keeps his block  .smooth by merely sawing off tbe rough  section. Such, however, is not the case.  Specialism has even entered here.  ;The man who makes a business of  smoothing the butchers' blocks appears  at the meat markets early,lb the morning before the customers arrive.    He  rolls  the big  block  to  the sidewalk,  then mounts to the-top^of It, adze In  hand.    Bringing It down swiftly from  a vertical position above his bead, the  blade is made to pass'between his legs,r  skimming the surface of the block with  great dexterity.        -    '     '  ' At each stroke a thin layer of the  rough wood Is removed.   The operation  is continued* sufficiently to satisfy tbe  butcher's  requirements.    -Some'-three  hours are ordinarily consumed in the  operation, and at the end of that time  "the" man with the adze" finds himself  richer by $1.  - Photos That Would Pay-.  Everybody Is trying to make money  quickly nowadays, and photographers,  amateur and expert, form,.a goodly percentage of the total included In "everybody." Here are a few subjects that  would fetch very high prices: ^  . A house being struck by lightning.  We have photos of lightning flashes;  but no picture of-the kind which shows  a flash actually striking a house.      , ���������  Two trains in. collision.' Photos-of  wrecked trains are common .enough,  but a snap shot at.the very occurrence  of the smash remains unrecorded.  The crew'of'a lifeboat in the act of  rescuing the sailors of. a sinking ship  in a fierce storm.  A negative of an Atlantic liner batting with an ocean tempest. If you  could take a snap shot of this subject  from the deck of another liner it would  be worth a good sum.  A photograph <of a sprightly earth;  quake in Japan or some other country  which is troubled in this way. ,, It  would be well to hang up your camera  and make it work automatically, as  earthquakes are not to be played with.  Such a picture would be jumped at.  A Lay Suggestion.  On the last night of a series of "protracted meetings" in the Methodist  church of a little southern California  village the visiting evangelist was  making a special effort to obtain a  showing of anxious souls. He had  preached his best sermon and reached  an emotional fervor that he had seldom  equaled. But nobody responded to his  invitation. They sang a hymn, and  then tbe evangelist rose again and called upon the congregation to "enlist for  the service of the Lord."  A battle scarred, wooden legged veteran who had dropped into the back  seat watched tbe'proceedings with interest. For the third time the perspiring evangelist rose and asked, "Is  there no one willing to enlist in the  Lord's army?"  Then response came from the back  seat, "Draft 'em, parson; hang It, draft  At the foot of the Hill of Endeavor, J  u.  y/oung One, look upward and sea  The shine of the prize  That dazzles your eyes ,  VTIth the gleam of the glory to be.

H������r Funniest Experience.  Says Mary C. Williamson The  Montreal Witness:* I> met two ladies  one moonlight evening. Each of them  had a basket of gi;een corn. As they  looked very much excited, I asked  them what was the matter, but got  no answer from them at the moment. They sat down on an old log  and took off their sun hats and began to fan themselves. At last they  recovered their breath and began to  laugh, and told me that our neighbor gave thein leave to go to his  field and pick some corn. To take  a short 'cut home they came across  the fields, and they heard something  following them. They ran for all  they were worth, being too much  frightened to look, around to see  what it was until they came to tho  next field. Then they found out. It  was an old mare, which wanted some  of their corn. Now what these ladies imagined to be\ following them I  leave to others to judge, as'I questioned them about it but got no answer. I may say that shortly before  this little event a man committed  suicide "in the field they had crossed.  THE FLYING MACHINE.

We can already, calculate approximately the proportions, the strength  and .weight, the supporting efficiency^  the speed, and the powejr required for  a\ projected ^flying, machine,-',so as to  judge of the practicability of a design. ' Indeed, the mathematics of  the\subject have been so ,far evolved  that engineering'computations rnay  eventually replace vague speculation  m the domain "of aerial navigation.  But after the problem has been  worked out to a mechanical success,  the commercial uses" of aerial apparatus will.be, small'. The limitations of , the balloon, have'"already  been - mentioned; such craft will be  slow, frail, and1 very costly. We'ar������  now, sufficiently advanced in the design*^ of flying'xnachines. to perceive  some" of their limitations. They, will  be comparatively small cand cranky,  require much power," carry little extra weight, and depend for their  effective speed, on each journey, whether they go, against the ��������� wind or  with it, so (that Chey cannot compete  with existing 'modes of transportation in cheapness or in carrying .capacity. It is true that, high speeds  may' be attained, _and this may serve  in war, in exploration, and 'in .sport;  but the loads,,will be very small, and  the expenses will be great.  But flying machines will develop  new-, uses of their own: and. as mankind has '..always been-benefited by  the , introduction of. new and faster  niodes^ of * transportation, we may  hope that. successful aerial n iviga-  tion, will spread .civilization, .knit the,  -nations-closer together, Wk'o all regions^ accessible, - ana ' perhaps so,  equalize^ the hazards of" war; j as to  abolish'"it altogether, thus bringing  about, the predicted '^era of universal  peace and' goodwill.���������Cassier's Maga-  ������ine.

Mr. Herbert Spencer, the philosopher, has turned not"long ago his  82nd year. For some time he,,has  been seldom seen in his old haunts  at the Athenaeum Club, London. Being more or less of an invalid, he  lives a retired life at Brighton. His  occasional 'visits to the theatre have  also practically ceased, though he enjoyed a comic opera. Equally abandoned by Spencer are now the prolonged games at billiards, at which,  says an exchange, he was an adept,  and rather proud of his skill. On  one occasion, however, at the Athenaeum Club, Herbert Spencer found  his master in a very young man, who  beat him thoroughly. When his defeat was to be no longer disguised,  the philosopher leaned on his cue  and delivered the following speech to  his fortunate antagonist: "A certain proficiency in this game is possibly a desirable accomplishment,  but the extraordinary < ability, sir,  you have just displayed can only be  the fruit of a misspent youth,"  which shows that even a Herbert  Spencer has read a little every day  philosophy now and then to enable  kirn to live his life.  A Significant Word.  "I think," said the gentleman, with the  unworldly expression, "that you daughter is now sufficiently advanced to take  up the subject of harmony."

The  principal   industry  is     the  treatment of split cod.    These/ after  salting,   require   to   be   washed <   and  sun  dried     on     the  rocks,   a. lengthy  process,  engaging  many  women    ana  children,   during the summer months.  Most of these split cod are'exported  to Italy  and  Spain,   the  market    for  them varying according to their size.  Fish  are  also  taken   by nets as well  as  by lines.    Besides the open boats,  there     are     now  nearly  one hundred  decked  boats employed,  and 'the fishing industry is being thus, developed.

Further,  the presence  in  these waters  of  fishing  vessels   with  trawl  on board,  although  not engaged  in  fishing,     is  not  allowed,   except  in  certain specified   circumstances,   according  to  law  which went into force on 'February 1,  1809."',:-. .: ���������-,'._,   ���������    //// ' ;;���������-. :/'/>���������//  Board   and   lodging  are  to  be had  in  the" houses of the loca.l clergy and  merchants at 3s  6d  a day���������-"amost  reasonable     amount considering    the  comfort,       cleanliness,   and  food     included.

"  The death of Archie Bre'mner   jviil  be sincerely regretted; by- every ^newspaper, man ,, in'Canada who.nad the  privilege of knowing him.    Mr. Brcm-  ner  was one  of the cleverest writers  and   one   of  the' best  all-round  journalists   Canada    has produced.     His  humor    s was '   of that 'quiet' quality  which never grows stale; 'his general  knowledge was wonderfully wide and  correct;      his     descriptive  work  was  racy  and      entertaining, 'and -at the  same time     correct; and his heavier  articles  were  of'the first  order.     He  was     a     whole-souled,, genial,     companionable man,      who made friends  wherever'he went; he was always the  life  and      soul 'of any  cbmpany     he,  found himself in, and he was  one 01  those rare conversationists who never tired   those  who  listened  to  him.  He  was generous  and his friendship  was warm     and loyal.     He was the  enemy of conventionality,      pretence,  hypocrisy and fraud, and never failed  to give these     a solid rap when1 opportunity     offered.    As a newspaper  man he stood in the-front rank, and  his  influence upon  the press  of  Canada will be felt for many \ears     to  come.

Iii'Cffest Tin Sfine.  There is a great mining boom now  on in Tasmania. Up until 1872 the  minerals were not thought to amount  to much, but in that year tin mines  were opened on Mount Bischoff, in  the northwestern part of the island,  and these have proved to be the  largest tin mines in the world. They  paid their first dividend in 1878, and  since then have been paying regularly, having distributed in dividends  more than $8,000,000. The total  exports of minerals now amount to  $5,000,000 annually, and there are  about 6,000 men at work in the  mines. Not only tin, but also gold,  silver, copper>. iron and coal are  taken out, as well as small amounts  of other metals.  Xarsest City in the Worid.

Wellington's     personal      taste  and  habits like those of- most great men,  were very simple.     He cared not for  show or pomp of any kind.    Instead  of  building a   counterpart to     Blenheim, for which money had been voted,  he  bought and improved Strath-  field.saye,   a  common   country  gentleman's house.    In his diet he was very  abstemious,    even to the injury,     it  appears,     of      his      health.     He,   of  course,  kept a first-rate French cook  for his      guests.

It waft easy to have  a large meeting as Mr- Anderson  and Mr Elliott so pleased the people last April when they spoke to  the Institute that posters announc-  ing their coming filled the hall.  President McPhee filled" the ehair  and with a few well timed remarks  introduced MrAnde son. who spoke  on the cultivation of root crops and  potatoes, also on the advantages of  farm life. The thorough preparation of the soil before planting, the  manner of planting, the after cultivation, all were dealt with, the  selection of seed, when and how to  cut the sets and everything till they  are in the root house.  He eulogized farm life and gave  many reasons for advising the  young men to go on land as farm.*  ers. Mr Elliott, on cultivation of  and maintaining the fertility of the  soil, gave much useful advice. Surface culture, keeping  down   weeds,  Nanaimo. Oct. 15, 1901.  >'   '   * '  Wm.

You  say. that the butter with 96 and 97  points at Courtney  show captured  - first prizes. ~r am sorry to tsay ' I  got no prize for the same ,ai the  half poun J prints were not * entered  in the judge's book, but the card on  them represents 96 points with the  first prize card with my name on it.  Now how could Mr Halliday make  this mistake? When Dr. Millard  g^t 98 points and took the first  prize, I got neither second or third  prize. The simple reason is Mr  Halliday told tbe judge who judged  the butter he -did not. know- who  those exhibits belonged to, consequently h*������ did not "mark the No.  of points in his" book, but the  score card with points and the.-  number 16 was on the prints.  Now. about the 21b. rolls.     They;.  had the card   on   with   97   points  which is.
