He Was Unable to Work for Seven  Years Before He Used the Great  Canadian Kidney Remedy.  Cotters Cove, Nfld., Dec, 19.���������(Special).���������The days of miracles are past,  but the cure of Joseph Boqne of tills  place almost ranks with the sensational cures of the earlier ages.  Mr. Boone has been ailing for eight  years, seven of which he was unable  to work from the effects of Backache  and Kidney Complaint. He was all  tiches and pains.  *He was treated by several doctors,  nnd after seven months in the hospital was sent home as incurable. It  was there that reading of cures in the  newspapers led him to use Dodd's  Kidney Pills. It took twenty-one  boxes to cure him, but to-day he is  strong and well and hard at work  lobster fishing,  ��������� People here have learned that if the  disease is of the Kidneys or from the  Kidneys Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure  it.  THE WRANGLERS.  Why   Cambridge   Univer������Lty   Hoa^r  Ilea Are $m Designated.  In the middle a^es when learning  was elevated to respectability in European colleges exercises consisted  largely of disputatious, and those who  engaged in them������were called disputants  or wranglers. One candidate was pit-  tod against another or against a college  don to thrash a question out. Wrangle  is a very suitable word, for the process  often consisted of a battle royal, carried on by twisting an opponent's  words so as utterly to battle or confuse  him.  In the University of Cambridge in  the fifteenth century 'an ould bache-  lour," as representative of the university, had to sit on a three legged stool  (hence the word tripos) "beffore Mr.  Froctours" to test the abilities of the  candidates for degrees by arguing with  "the eldest son" of them.  If these trials turned out satisfac-  -torily-the.moderator_would���������co.mp.l.i.mejgLt,  the candidates by saying to each, "Sum-  mo ingenii acumine disputasti"' (you  have wrangled excellently) to the foremost, or "optime quldem" or "optime"  ouly to what are still called senior and  junior optimes. Not till 1753 was the  word wrangler used of the hlghest'hon-  ors class. .,       ,  SALLY LUNNS.  Named   For   n   Fninoun   Elsrliteentk  Century Pastry Cook.  The sweet, light tea cakes, nowadays  familiar to us under tho name of Sally  Lunna, are called after a young pastry  cook of that name who was famous for  the quality of her wares at the close  of the eighteenth century and was constantly to bo seen carrying them In a  basket, morning and evening, and crying them through the streets of Bath,  temptingly displayed in snow white  linen. She Is said to have kept a cake  shop which became a favorite resort  for old and young in the old west country town.  ���������Palmer, a musical baker, bought ber  roclpe, mado a song ln praise of those  tea cakes ond sot it to music. This  soon cu light on and was sung and whistled os n popular nlr. Sally Lunns wore  distributed on spoclnl barrows, and  Dalmor'a fortuno was ussurod,  Sully Lunn herself Is suid to have  baked her toa cukes for the princo ragout, through whom thoy , became  known to tlio celobrntwl chef Carom-?,  IIo calmly adopted thom aa his own  Invention nnd sold thorn to bis customers In Purls an Solllomes, nn evident plagiarism for Sally Lunns.���������Lon-  dou Mull.

A  LOOK  AT  OUR  PROGRESS.  Superstition* About Cata.  There are many strange superstitions  extant about cats. When cats sneeze,  it is said, it is a sign of rain. Tbe cardinal point to which a cat turns and  washes its face after rain shows the  direction from which the wind will  blow. When cats are snoring foul  weather is sure to follow. Cats with  their tails up and hair apparently electrified indicate approaching wind. If  sparks are seen when stroking a cat's  back expect a change of weather soon.  When a cat washes its face with its  back to the fire expect * thaw in winter.  Perver.Ion  by  Abbreviation.

During 1902 no fewer than 26,002  persons were killed by reptiles and  wild animals in India, according to  a statistical abstract issued the other day. This total, is made up as follows: By tigers, 1,048; by leopards,  509; by wolves, 377;. by other, wild  animals, 904; by reptiles, 23,166.  To be a mendicant in India is to  be a .member of an officially recognized profession, for in a. volume of  ;statistics-relating-to���������our-Indian-35m���������  pire from 1893-1894 to 1902-1903  it is stated that the number of non-  religious mendicants is 2,433,115, of  whom 1,572,479 are males...  Another curious item in this reJ  markable volume, which reduces the  country, its peoplo, its trade, and  everything connected with it to  tables and figures, is that in 1902,  23,108 criminals were sentenced to  be whipped.

The most powerful searchlight ever  designed or built wns recently finished at the famous Scliuekert works at  Nuremberg, Germany, where tho  manufacture of giant searchlights has  been wade a specialty.

PILLS  We will soon be closing another  year, and again as we, the citizens of  Assiniboia, tho farmers of the West,  balance oar looks for another season  we can look around us and s^e and  feel prosperity; we know that we are  better off than we were a year ago,  and those of us who have bean in the  West since its youth know that its  growth and progress are substantial.  The pioneers who came to the  wheat belt of Western Cav.ada made  a choice of two propositions when  they decided to farm; to select the  highly advertised lands of the Da-  kotas and Minnesota, or coni9 to the  less advertised tenitory of Manitoba  and Assiniboia. Were they wise ln  their selection? Let us look at results.  The Blue Book for th.o ten years  'iJl-'Ol gives fie average >i:ld p?r  acre of 12.07 bus, in N. Da'o'a and  10.04 bus. in S. Dakota, with an  average of all Western Strt.s of 12  bushels. The Canadian B ue Book b  authority i'or the figur.-s thi*. cover  the san-e period of yoars ('91-'0i) in  the Canadian West the average yi;ld  was 17.07 bush3ls. ' There, quitet.ons'  give us a feeling of satisfaction when  we look, backward for a decade snd  realize tliat we ar.? about 40 per c nt  wealthier, ench y?ar than ouv cou ins  across the line.

Our average of l'iy2 hush-Is at  80 cents would be $14 psr a-.re;  Northern, S.atev. average oi' 12 bus  at ,96, cents would be ���������*$'l1.52' p-.racre.  The amount is not very large, only  $250 on a 150-acre .crop, but it i'i a  i^ice nest egg, a::d though our pries  have to be governed by British markets, and the p-car i y oii lxii.ing  wheat across t:e border mrkes a local market which cm call flour at  ������3.45 per hundred, wh.ls we buy our  hour for $2.20. ,  We have our drawbacks in this  country, but we also have substantial  advantages. Let us then; be loyal to  our country. Push it along in every  way that is going to benefit those  who reside here and the prosperity  will continue.���������[Ga'nstorough Post.

THE FIRST RAILWAYS.  When  Sixteen' MIIcm an   Hour Made  the Pnssenfircr������ Dizxy.  In 3830, when the railway was opened between Liverpool and Manchester,  the Liverpool terminus was at Wap-  ping. Lime street tunnel was not completed until about six years later.  At flrst the service consisted of three  trains each way on week days and two  ou Sundays, but this was soon found  to be Insufficient. After Lime street  station was opened there were six flrst  class trains and six second class trains  ench way on week days and two of  each description on Sundays. Tho journey of thirty-one miles occupied nearly two hours, which led to complaints  that the speed was too great to be  pleasant and caused diswlnoss. On the  other hand, sanguine expectations were  indulged in that i������ comue of time tho  average rate of traveling would bo at  least double the ordinary speed of the  swiftest conveyances drawn by horses.  It was anticipated that tho general  adoption of railways would load to "a  vast decrease in tho consumption of  outs aud bay by tbo substitution of  steam engines In lieu of horsos, and  that portion of tho soil which bas hitherto boon allotted to tbo growth of  such produce may bo appropriated to  tbo raising of food Hultnblo to tlio human species'*���������an Important consideration In tho tlmo of tbo corn laws.

A POPULAR COMPETITION AS7T WAS  HELD AT A SCOTTISH SHOW.  Clever Work Done by the Four-rooted Con-  petitora ��������� Marvellous Sympathy Maul-  fetted Between Master and Dog-Diagram ot the Field Used for the Shtep  Dog Trials at the Canadian National  Exhibition, Sept. C, 7 and 8, 1004.  Tho following^is a description of  tho she"p-dpg *.ti'ials ps conducted at  an agricultural show in Scotland:  Tho flrst to stop out and try his  luck was Duncan McDonald, from  Medwynhcad. Duncan and Spot looked confident enough, and certainly  they, appeared to bo in no hurry. In  going, away Spot showed rather much  hesitation. His ������ stylo suggested a  doubt as to whether his master had  a right to ask him to discharge such  a duty. By slow degrees ho got beyond his charges, but still there was  a carelessness���������an indifference���������in his  every movement. Once or twice , ho  gnve hopes of an agile display, but  his normal "saunter" was not, even  here, to be departed from. He missed  the first "post," to the great annoy?  anco of Duncan, but" Spot took the  mishap with philosophic calm. While  attempting to ���������''shed,'.' Spot gave too  much attention to the spectators, tho  result being not a ,very perfect job.  It could'*'not bo said that ho was  disobedient; the fault, wo think, lay,  in his being over-trained.   \  Robert Young, of , Whitelawburn,  with Spark, came next. The opening  promiso was good. No slackness here.  Spark had taken a lesson from tho  failure of Spot. By his flrst turn he  emphatically declared that there was  no time to waste. Ho xneant business, for-soon he haU his charge of  five about the feet of his master.  Hero both master and dog made a  mistake. Without pausing for a single  moment they proceeded to "shed."  There was'no settling down, no deliberate taking of places, no establishing of mutual confidences���������all  these essentials were entirely overlooked. Spark was all life, quick and  sure in movement, a splendid "eye,"  but having no plan to go by, ho  kept up a constant "whirl" without  accomplishing anything. With ten  score of wild Blackface Iambs, separated from thoir mothers   by about' a  "hundred yards, what' a1" display!  Spark's hurry ended in his being asked to get to thc terminating pen as  quickly at possible. ���������  James -Teller, from Ardbrannnn,  row took tho field with Prod. Sba  had rather an unfavorable start, tho  blamo resting with hor master.     He  Ljinton Rogers ana Tynfc,  Whitefield, were now called upon.  When Tyne was in the act of making  his third point another dog volunteered his. assistance. This being  contrary to rule and ah open insult  to the genius of.Tyne, some disturbance was caused. Much favorabla  comment was made on his opening  run, Andrew Brown throwing himself  into a position of vantage to catch  his every attitude; but Tyne could  not get over the interference of hia  canine brother. When'the "shedding"  .stage was reached he treated the onlookers to an imitation of tho  "American    Post."    an    innovatio-p  which the Judges abruptly brought  to a close. This was Tyne's final-?.   ;!  David Wilson and 'Tweed, from Tor-  loss, now came up to show all concerned how the thing should be  done. The sh������ep met Tweed almost  halfway, but Tweed showed no desire to take undue advantage of this  auspicious opening. He brought them  past the wrong sido of the post, betraying a weakness which he' afterwards strove to rectify, and then assumed too stern a role, and "dogged' 'his charges too severely. During the shedding his master waved  his stick too much, a ;; habit always  Hidfropt inor tn a ���������*���������-> nnhle rlntr Th������  "taKmg away" tried hsm keenly, bu$  he served well. Tweed should have a  future.  Alexandpr Millar and Pi'isk, from  Ballageich, Eaglosham, quietly took  their places at the starting point.  There was no hiding the fact; that  both master and dog w.ere.not % new  to tho ordeal. A7 slight;"inclination of  the left .hand, and Frisk was off. He  swept past the front of the crowd in  fine form, and in a few seconds had  his charge under control. Tho moment he caught the ten eyes ' of tho  sheep he went down as if dropped,by  a bullet. This waisart. ' Then he  moved slowly on them, shedding the  grass with his nose, and his tail  was just where it should be.,; Tho  question in the minds of all ' was���������  Could this be kept up? He carried  his "post" points, and applied himself to - tho j "shedding'; with .grand  promise. Now we saw him at his  best. To his master's ;<every gesture  he responded, nor. did he lose for a  moment.the perfect command which  by his first turn he had sassumed. Ho  covered little space, but there was  meaning in every flash of his eye. Tho  judges   were:..right when they  irom! ana wceas must ne Kept, __������-,, a������  least so as not to rob the trees of  needed moisture; third, the sprouts  and suckers that are always starting  at the. roots , must be kept down;  fourth, the loss." by insect depredations must be kept as taw as possible; fifth, diseases must be fought  and kept in check. In no other way  can these conditions be so easily, effectually, cheaply and profitably met  as by sheeping the orchard.���������Rural  New Yorker.

As the germ    of    hog ,  cholera   will    sometimes    livo    four  months and even, longer under   favorable conditions it is always wise   to  put newly purchased swine by   them-J  selves for some    time   in order that*  the danger of infection by this means  may bo eliminated.

G. Roberts in Harper's Weekly.  lt was Mrs. Anderson wbo first suggested the society, and thereby she  hoped to attain national fame, for in  the first blush of enthusiasm she predicted that fhe Provident Home club  would in time extend from New York  to San Francisco, with the Carson club  as the parent organization.  . The P. H. 0. was simple enough,  It consisted of nearly all the marriageable girls in Carson, who, fired by the  enthusiasm of Mrs. Anderson, pledged  themselves not to marry until their future spouse had provided a home and a  bank account, thus making ample provision for the inevitable rainy day.  Tbe young men had no share in this  enthusiastic admiration for Mrs. Anderson. Indeed, Frank Harper had  had his first quarrel with Rose Wilder  because he had happened to hint that  Mrs. Anderson's enthusiasm might be  somewhat less were she not comfortably married.  "Jack Anderson has plenty of money," he, growled, "but old man Anderson married when his sole capital  was a railroad ticket west, and he never saved up enough to bring hi,s wife  out to their new home until after the  second summer."  "Do you dare to say that she Is not  sincere?" demanded Rose hotly. She  was one of Mrs. Anderson's strongest  partisans.  "She is sincere," admitted Harper,  "but if Jack was as poor as his father  was and she loved him I'll bet the  P. FI. C. would never have been formed."  In the end Harper went home with  a heavy heart, carrying the little ring  that bad been the pledge of their love.  Rose had declared that he must pay  off the mortgage upon his farm before  they were married and have at least  $5,000 in the bank.  It took Harper exactly a week to  pull himself together. Then he inaugurated  retaliatory  methods.    The  MONKEY FACED OWLS.

She drew it out of the bank  ���������yesterday. * and ' tomorrow" she will turn  it over to the old and trusted friend of  her late husband."  "Who is he?" asked the first burglar.  "IIe'_ an old cove they've known all  t.i.jir lives. He's going to nil vise her  how to invest* her money. In the meantime she's got it all up Htairs with her  in a black bag."  The flrst burglar was silent for awhile.  "Jim," he said at last, "I haven't the  heart to do It. She's a widow. Let's  wait."  "Wait!" exclaimed the second burglar.  "For what?"  "Why," said bis companion, "wnit until the old cove has it, then rob him."���������  Life. ���������������������������   ���������  Ambition*.  "You say you are ambitious?" said  the relative who lectures.  "I atii." said the young man.  "But you are not doing anything to  distinguish yourselt from the rest of  mankind."  "Yes, I am," was the serene reply. "1  am staying away from the golf links. 1  expect in the course of time to be famous  as the only man iu the world who doesn't  play golf."���������Washington Star.

Don't hurry about anything. If  you ronlly love Miss Wltherspoon and  she loves you, you'll love each other a  great deal better a year from now���������  Qve years from now, for that matter.  And Jf there's a mistake, it may be set'  right. Time will set all right, my boy,  and that's a bard dbctrlne for youth to  swallow. If there's no mistake aud  you bring her to me at last to be my  daughter���������well, I think you know ine,  Marshall."  I took his hand, and there were tears  In my eyes. Neither of us spoke as I  groped for my hat and found my way  out of the room.  Upon the driveway to my utter sur  t>rlse I beheld Derringer and Miss La-  itoolne. My month opened for speech,  1 but no word came out of it. I was doubly surprised, for my father had told  me that Sibyl was in the lodge, and I  had supposed that Derringer bad gone  back to New York. In the last few  days I hadn't seen him.  He came up to me hastily while I  Stood hat in hand.  "Terry," he said, "I am the chief of  Idiots, and I have the luck belonging  to that kind. I was all wrong. She is  really Miss Lamoine."  I gave my hand to the lady, wbo at  that moment extended hers.  "How could we have been in doubt?"  said I. "She really looks like her broth-  ������r very much. You must know, Miss  Lamoine, that Jimmy has been the  ���������solace of my days in this place. He is  ������ great boy."  "Jimmy is a little.monkey," said she.  "I suppose he has played tricka upon  you without end."  -^JlSUghUy^^sai^dJ9y_JZnudd������n������������,!L^  replied, "Jimmy has accomplished wonders for my entertainment. But what  am I to Infer by Mr. Derringer's remark about his luck?"  "We await congratulations and best  Wishes," said she, "in the old fashioned way."  "If ever since the world began they  have been sincerely given, It is now,"  ���������aid T, taking a hand of each of them.  She looked quickly at Derringer, and  In that instant she was a different woman to mc. She had come out from be-  "Come," 1 cried,   "I haven't time to explain."  hind tlio voll, and thero wns a awoot  and bonutlful sincerity In her eyes.

No ono wan In night nt tho lodge,  Miss Beott's part of Iho house was  clearly deserted, I walked around to  tbe southern front and looked along tlio  veranda nervously, but Klbyl was not  tbero. I know not ln whnt gulso to expect lior, but tho thought of Seovcl's  ���������d venture was painfully present In my  mind.  Turning bnck for nn Instant, I saw a  fliittni-l������������������*-:������ -������i'~y ������rnt'������* ������*p--i������r,llnf������ nwny.  It mmt havo been tlmt Lucy Ann hnd  passed nround the llttlo house in the  rcrerno direction, presumably to nvold  mo. 1 called to lier, but kIio continued  to mn, Totally forgot ting my errand, I  giro r-hnoo tn hor   find   li!ivhi<������ n "t-nnt  ���������advnntugo in tho matter of stride, I  ���������quickly overtook her and laid a gentle  hand upon her or in.

Como: I en n't nny wlmt I would"*-  Ami really I couldn't. J -w-'tuorl to  miss nn Inspiration that I had felt often In tho lant few duys nud had re-  Itrained. There wns noun-thing strange  In the clast of my (mud upon her nrm.  i_Gsie isessage came to me aiong tne  nerves. I stepped back hastily.  She started to run'again, tripped and  In recovering turned half toward me as  I sprang forward to assist her. I saw  her face and knew in a flash that it  was the face Scovel had seen from the  hill.'  By heaven, the secret was out now!  I had caught the real Sibyl at last, i  called her by name In a voice that was  a trifle hoarse.  '   "No. no!" she cried. "I nm not SibyL  I am Miss Scott."  "Where is she?"  She waved me back toward the lodge  nnd then ran on. I retraced my .steps'  hastily. Just as I passed the side of  the little bouse I beard a noise upon the  veranda. It was clear that when I had  been there before Sibyl had been within. I, advanced cautiously and looked  around the corner. At a little table sat  Helena Jones, a book in her hand,  which she seemed to be pretending to  read. Her face was turned aside, and  she did not see me.  Thoughts of strange vagueness whirled in my head. Surely Trask would  not have jested upon so serious a matter as an engagement. And then it all  rushed over me. Trask had suid, or had  permitted Lucy Ann to say, that he  was engaged to a certain lady, but he  bad never told me who Helena* Jones  really was. Obviously Sibyl had masqueraded in the guise of her, friend,'as  1 had long before suspected.  Really the discovery was of little consequence, for the story was told. I  cared for neither Sibyl.nor Helena. For  one instant the echo of the voice, rang  In my ears. Then I turned back to tho  house. It was in my mind to see my  father first, to tell him that I knew all.  Perhaps he did not know. It was quite  possible that he was altogether in the  dark. I walked hastily up the path and  was nearly out of the orchard when I  became suddenly aware of Lucy Ann,  In a greenish gown, very tasteful and  becoming.  She gave a little cry at the sight of  me. In an Instant I had both her  hands.  "Come," I cried. "I haven't time to  explain." '���������.,-.  "Where?" she gasped. "Where are  we going?"  "You are going to meet my father."  "I thought the house was on fire,"  said she. "What is the reason for such  a terrible hurry? No. no. I donLtjwant  to meet him���������not Just yet. Tell me  more.  Why"���������  "Don't be frightened," said I, holding myself with a tight grip. "I merely  told him that I would bring you in, and  he is waiting."  As she still hesitated I took her by  the hand and led her to the house in a  fashion quite bucolic. She hung back  a little as we reached my door, but I  pushed it open and drew ber forward.  My father was sitting at tbo table,  with his elbows upon it, and I think ho  had been having n very bad ttoie. His  heart had been so set upon Sibyl and  me���������we two together always in his  lovo and thoughts���������that it was hard for  him to yield.  : "Father," said I, "this Is Miss Wltherspoon. I want you to"���������  His right hand had gone suddenly to  his forehead; the other was slowly extending Itself toward us. Ho half roso  from his chair.  "Sibyl!" ho cried. "You! You wero"-  "Yes, sir," she replied In a'weak  volco. "I was Lucy Ann, and���������and everybody else. We���������wo wore all���������everybody. It was Miss Scott In tho orchard  sometimes, aud again It was Helena.  And sometimes Miss Scott woro Lucy  Ann's clothes.': You saw hor so, uncle,  tho dny you lunched with me, and I  told you"-���������  "And there isn't any Lucy Ann!" I  exclaimed.  "Oh, yes," said she, "but sho's not  horo. I took her place. Mrs. Wltherspoon Is ronlly a relation of mine,  though sho's not my nunt. Thoy nil  helped ' tn'o���������IIolonn nnd Jimmy La-  rnolno.

I shall never forgot how you  lookod wheu Miss Scott en tno down  through tho orchard wearing tho lilies  that Jimmy hud got from Mr. Trusk.  Of course I told hliu what to do, and  ho carried my Instructions to Miss  Scott, nnd you lookod so bluo."  My throat was dry with excitement,'  so that I could hardly speak.  "We bavo played., with flro," said I.  "Sibyl, you havo iet my heart ablaze.  Do you lovo me, don rest dear? Don't  mnke me wait another second, for the  answer,"  "l|-'*i������-(t    Prnni   XX\o   e\f}   r]t\*m**   .be  replied. "Too mwh. Oh, soo whnt, I  hnvo dono I It looks perfectly Hhn mo-  loss.

Quernes, as these  mills are called, are frequently found  in the cyelopean underground dwellings of Scotland, Their simplest form  consists of two thin circular stones, the  upper of which is pierced in the center  and revolves on a wooden or metal pin  inserted in the lower one. The grinder  dropped the grain into the central hole  with one hand while the other caused  the upper stone to revolve by means of  a stick inserted in a small hole near the  edge.  The laborlousness of this operation Is  well illustrated by a story told of Co-  lumba. He was studying under St Fin-  nlan, and every night on which It fell  to his lot to grind the corn with the  querne he performed his task so quickly that his companions enviously asserted that he had the assistance of nn  angel in turning the. stone.,,' Wilson  thinks that at this time (the early part  of the sixth century) the querne waa  the only mill ln use. Large water mills  were introduced in the thirteenth century into Scotland, and legal means had  to be employed to render their use compulsory.���������Gentleman's Magazine.  The "Word "Bniom.'r  When we now speak of a buxom person we think of such a one as Mrs. Lupin in "Martin Chuzzlewit," a plump,;  middle aged, good looking, good na-  tured, kind, agreeable woman. We do  not usually apply the term to a thin  woman, or to a youug girl, or to an old  woman. Assuredly we should never  think of calling a man or boy buxom.  The word, however, once really meant  pliable or flexible, and afterward obedient It is the same as the Anglo-Saxon  bocsum, or the high German beugsam,  from beugen (to bend), which root appears in bough and bou (in all its meanings.)  In the Salisbury Manual the woman  at the marriage service promised to be  "bonair" and "buxom," which is explained in the margin to mean meek  and obedient. We are hereby reminded  of Milton's line In the most beautiful  of all odes, "So buxom, blithe and debonair." This original meaning, of the  word appears in Chaucer's "Merchant's  Tale," "For who ;an be so buxom as a  wife?" The word in its application was  -ntflim1ted-to-women���������In-^'The-Glerk's-  Tale" we are told of men, "And they  with humble heart full buxomly." ln  Henry Cochrane's dictionary (A.

OUR VIKING QUEEN.  Strange Myths ol Thlbotaui.  Besides believing so fully in tho  powers of magic and necromancy, tho  Thibetans havo numberless strange  myths, one, the most curious, per-,  taining to the sun, moon and stars.  Tho sun is believed to bo an immense ball of yak-meat and fat,  whereupon tho spirits of departed ancestors arc supposed to least, tho  light being caused by its heated condition. The stars are portions of  this immense feast which, dropping  to earth, give birth to animals for  tho sustenance of suffering humanity.  Tho moon is a lessor ball of .similar  texture'as tho sun, in uso while the  larger one is being replenished for  tho morrow, When sun or moon  fails to appear in cloudy days ond  nights,'' it moans that tlio deities aro  undergoing a period of fasting and  religious abnegation, And 'tho  parched and sterilo condition ' of  bleak regions is ascribed to tho fact  that many thousand yonrs ngo tho  sun-ball slipped from tho hands of  its keepers, descended too near tho  earth, and, before bolng recaptured,  scorched thoso parts with which it  came in contact.

When the daughter of the King of  Denmark came to English shores as  a bride, Tennyson hailed her as ono  of a Viking race, and certainly both  Queen Alexandra and all the members  of the present Royal family love the  sea. Any one who saw the youthful  mother of the Prince of Wales'"for the  first time would little associate hor  with "seafaring." And yet she finds  the most congenial recreation yachting with her family in one of the  numerous floating palaces, which are  perpetually cruising* about the seas.  Princess Victoria, who has been very  delicate at times, went off with her  lady-in-waiting earlier in the season  on a cruise along the British coast,  and the Duke of York���������Princo of  Wales���������is said/never to be happier  than when at sea, and his little sons  are instructed., in every branch of  "sea lore." The Duchess of Fife does  uot spend so much of her time at  sea as the other, but is a most expert angler, and is said to tramp  long miles in pursuit-of her favorito  sport.  Queen Alexandra has never been a  "sport," but she loves the sea, and  always on "her journeys to her native  home takes the longest way round,  that sho may enjoy a holiday on the  ocean. The King has ever delighted  in yachting, and since his serious illnesses Has always sought health and  strength on a cruise in the Solent.  One of a large firm of shipbuilders  said the other day that this love of  the sea in ���������the Royal family had given a great impStus to the fashion  among rich people for what to his  trade meant good custom. "What  the King does not know about the  designing and sailing of ships is precious little, and the little sons of the  Duke of York are already familiar  with all the nautical terms used by  -y achtsmenr"' "The^Pr in WstrTTeuf,yHJf  Battenburg and her children are forever taking short cruises along the  British coast.  Ancient Irixh  Custom.  An ancient custom still prevails ln  Cork. Every three years the lord mayor proceeds in his state barge to the  mouth of Cork harbor and throws into  the sea a dart that has a gilded head  and a shaft of mahogany. This ceremony implies the dominion of his town  over the adjacent sea, with all Its inlets and island-  An Odd Chinese htiw.

CHARLES   A7 BARBER,  Editor of the  Pilot  Mound  Sentinel.  der Mr. James Bryan, the able editor  of that paper. Mr. Barber's three  years' work n Lucknow were largely  instrumental in developing the qunli-  ties that will determine his career. He  himself is a firm believer in the fact  that not ability alone, but character  and ability, are necessary for a successful. editor, and the young foreman  of the Sentinel displayed while in  Lucknow those qualities of manliness,  earnestness and conscientious thoroughness that gained him the confidence and respect of the ofSce and  its customers and the community.

On this  continent ability outranks experienc*.  whereas in Europe, experience being t0 stin further improve it, as  I  i  proven, ability is assured. On the  other side of the Atlantic youth is to  some extent a handicap���������a disadvantage that time alone can cure. ,On  this side -we,, believe with Shaks-  ~_p-ear"6rthat-"youth���������will���������be-ser-vedA  and, other conditions being equal, the  younger and more energetic men are  given preference. Hence young men  ���������more striplings they would be considered in older lands���������are to be  found in all parts of Canada and the  States iilling positions of the greatest  responsibility, planning and directing  industries of colossal magnitude and  governing enterpiises of nat.onal importance.  It is therefore only natural that, the  younger tlio state or province, the  younger is the average oE the men  prominent therein. The New England  States and tlie Maritime Provinces  and Ontario do not oifer to young ambition tlio sam 0 opportunity as the  West. Conservatism creeps Into all  communities, and tho sympathies of  the old settlements of tho New World  have much in common with ths older  clvllixations, But the parties and the  Paelllc slope yet remain, the undisputed heritage of youth and ability,  and thoro is to bo found the true land  of opportunity for him who fears not  to put his fortune and his manhood to  the test.  Journalism the world over ls ln a  peculiar senso the profession of young  men, but nowhere aro editors younger  than in some towns in Western Canada, which has boen remarkable, as  much for tho youth as for tho ability  of many of the men of tho "fifth estate." A case In point Is thnt of Mr,  C'������arlos A. Barber, editor of tho Pilot  Mound Sentinel. At an age when  moBt newspaper men are reporting,  and most printers' ambitions would  be realized by a foromanshlp, ho Is a  nowspnpor proprietor. To hnvo  achieved thus much aftor seven yoars  of work is a record of which anyone  might woll bo proud, it is an accom-  pllshmont that speaks much for Mr.  Barker's onergy and abll'ty, nnd nlso  rnuclffor tlio country that offers to a  young man of tho required characteristics such opportunities for solf-ad-  vancemont, It ls a record thnt many  anothor young man In tho Wost has  duplicated in Journalistic and othor  fields, and ono of which any Western  Canadian can point with pardonablo  enthusiasm,  Mr. Barber Is a British Columbian  by birth, having been born in tho  beautiful village of Chllliwnek In September 1.879. When four years old his  parents removed east, locating at  Winghnm, Ont., at the public school  of whoh place he recelvod hiB education.

He  pulled up stakes and struck out for  Winnipeg. Por three months ��������� he  worked on the Free Press, Canada's  biggest daily, and after this preliminary western canter he started a career for himself by purchasing the  Pilot Mound Sentinel and its accessory business fourteen months ago.  In that space of time Mr. Barber  has made his mark on the Sentiinel,  and his influence felt throughout the  field of its circulation. His arrival  at Pilot Mound, coincided with the  town's awakening from the torpor and  lethargy of years.and the desire of its  citizens for civic unity and progress.  In ths renaissance none was as helpful  as the new editor. In the paper itself he  made many changes. The makeup was  rearranged and its typographical appearance improved. Indeed, as far as  mechanical care and printing-taste is  concerned, few papers in the West  are superior to that published at Pilot  Mound, and Mr. Barber's intenton is  develop  HALIFAX  DOCKYARD  CLOSED.  Admiralty Cables  Instructions to That  Effect.���������Employees  Notified.  -Orders were received from the  British Admiralty Friday, by cable,  directing that the naval dockyard at  Halifax be closed down at once, ln  accordance with this order, the employees were given one week's notice  that their services would no longer  be required. - This order is in keeping  with Sir John Fisher's scheme for the  reorganization of British naval methods, and for the established of a  huge and powerful flying squadron instead of a fleet permanently stationed at Halifax and Bermuda.  The naval dockyard at Halifax has  been in existence for 150 years, and  the employes numbered at the height  of the season some 400, though now  they are down to. about 100.  A Victoria despatch of the same  date says that orders were also received at thc naval dockyard at Esquimau that all the permanent staff,  with one or two exceptions, will be  discharged on March 1 next. Fre*!  Davey, accountant of works for tho  past 25 years, together with the officer in charge, are all of the staff  that will be left.

And the mechanical improvement of the Sentinel has been kept  pace" with by its news columns. The  ���������local���������happenings���������are���������recor-ded���������rWJth  brightness and interest, as to make  the Sentinel a welcome weekly visitor in the homes of the prosperous  farming community among which it  circulates. Politically the Sentinel has  not allied itself to any party, for , the  reason that there is but one paper in  "the Mound," and on matters political  the policy of the paper is to remain  neutral, snd hold the balance even.  Mr. Barber believes that the field of  the local paper is not the dlscuss'on  of provincial and federal issues, but  tho recording of local news, and fair  comment on local and general matters.  Turning from the editor to the man,  a word might be said. In all respects  Mr Barber is a fine citzon; and the  representative of a type of which no  country can have too many. He Is a  "sport" of the proper kind. Ho handles a lacrosse stick In great shape,  and is capt* In Of the town lacrosse  team( while at football ho "handles his  feet" with equal keenness and skill.
