Eotvos undertook to hasten the death of  patients whose cases he considered  hopeless by putting them _ out of their  misery, aa he termed It, with fatal  drugs. He encountered no opposition  to his peculiar methods of benevolence  while he practiced them on people of  no particular standing*, but when the  doctor hastened the death of a well  known land proprietor named Szlavy,  who was slowly dying of cancer, the  relatives of the dead man presented a  violent protest and demanded the prosecution of Eotvos.  The physician declared on trial he  was actuated by humane motives and  had merely eased the journey of his  victims to the inevitable goal. This defense was uot accepted by the court  Eotvos was acquitted of malice, but  found guilty of homicide without malice and sentenced to a long term of imprisonment  -*  )   When Other Eye* Meet Mine.  "Love is blind," he complained.  "That ought not to worry you." she  said encouragingly, "because we bave  eyes only for each other."*  The man who Is always talking nhout  how much work, he does should remember that some peopl^ work so hard that  they don't have tiiiie to tci! about it.-  A bal<l-he������idcd man in Missouri, is  smug for a divorce because his wife  compelled hint to. sit on the* front  stoop all summer u> kooji the iiies  out of the house..

BLAME THE LIVER.  Scores of the Common lite of Life Oue to Disorders  of the Liver are Curable by  DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS.  If you arc bilious, blamo thc Hver.  If your digestion is impaired and  you suffer from headache and dizzy  spells, blame the liver. If your  bowels are irregular, constipation  and looseness alternating, blame tho  liver. If you havo pain under the  shoulder, blades, feelings of fullness  after meals, aching limbs, a yellow,  muddy complexion,  blame tho liver.  Torpid, sluggish action of tho liver  is responsible for all these symptoms  and while you ha,vo a right to  blame tho liver, it. may bo well for  you to set about to help the liver  out of difficulty.  Though bile, which the healthy  livor filters from the blood, is nature's cathartic and is necessary to  healthful and regular action of the  bowels, it is poison when* left, in tho  blood and gives rise to many distressing symptoms. Tlie uso of Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills promptly  cures torpid liver and biliousness,  and because of their combined, action, ensure a thorough" cleansing of  the system.  There is probably no ono organ responsible for so many    ills   as    the  liver. Overeating, excessive drinking  or irrogular meals aro very likely to  upset the action of the liver, overload tho system with bile and bring  on biliousness or sick headache. Keep  tho liver in health by using J)r.  Chaso's Kidney-Liver Pills and you  will avoid many of thc common ills  of life. There will thon bo no constipation, uo stomach troubles, no  danger of kidney and urinary derangements.  The position which Dr. Ohaso'������  Kidnoy-Liivor Pills hold to-day as  thc leading family medicine is undoubtedly due to -the. wonderfully  prompt action on the liver and their  combined ofibrt on tho kidneys and  bowels. Thero is no medicine obtainable whicli, is moro useful in  cases of emergency when the digestive, urinary or excretory systems  arc deranged than this great proscription of Dr. A. W.

lontala and KorelgneT^-Glamor of the
I'lace.
Srr* Charles Barry's lioble Gothic
uilc, pitched between the venerable
Abbey of Westminster "and the classic
Thames, and enshrining the ancient
Westminster Hall, stands forth an
eloquent witness to thc antiquity
tuid virility of the English Parliamentary system. Now at least 650
years old, the mother of Parliaments
has survived tho wreck of centuries
and the crash ot dynasties. By a process of continuous development it has
adapted itself to every vicissitude of
changeful time. It haa suffered temporary eclipse at the bands of despotic sovereigns and the obloquy
tbat followed its own attempt at
autocratic Government. It has witnessed the servility oi tbe sycophant,
the noble courage of the patriot.
Time was when every member had his
price���to-day the House of Commons
is probably freer from political corruption than any other popular assembly in the world. ,
Glamor oi rho Pinup.
The centre of.gravity of the British
Parliamentary 'system is admittedly
now to bo found in the House of
���Boonmons. In that respect it is sui
generis. Although it has been th��
prototype of many popular elective
bodies, nono are exactly like it. AU
have departed more or less from it.
Thi�� is not surprising. Institutions
cannot bo transplanted. The curious
ejustoms, the quaint ceremoui-is. tho
odd relics of a bygone time, tlie glamor of a hoary tradition cannot pur-
vive a different atmosphere. When
ibey become more anachronisms, superficial imitations without the spirit and associations which can alono
render them not merely tolerable, but
Sluable, they fire better left alone,
us it follows that foreign and colonial visitors look with omaiiement
at many of the usages and practices
of the nouse of Commons. Transient
impressions often lead to hasty judgments,   but tliey are not    alone    in
���this, Many an   iconoclast    in    the
mother land iSs^^hunderea agamsT
the absurdities and punctilios of the
House of Commons���till he got inside
himself. Then tho glamor of the
pl&ce seizes him. Ho soon subsides
tnto acquiescence and ends b.y becoming tho ardent defender of what he so
fervently condemned, mid Uio most
intataless castigntor of the tenderfoot
who infringes the unwritten rules of
th�� House. In fact, "it is in tho very
aJr members breathe. All these unwritten traditionary practices onco
mastered become the certificate of
full initiation. They aro the secret
nymbois that separate the member of
Parliament from tho ruck of mankind and "Tbo Houso" becomes the
���tynonym for "My House."
Hall Mark of tiro Hmt...
Reputation*} in public life never become fixed till they receive tho hail
mark of tho House of Commons. .Success ua the platform avails littlo
qntesN followed by achievement on
tho floor of Parliament. And tbo
Houso of Commons is. In iu any ways
tbo most truly democratic assembly
in tho world. Hank, education, nodal
position, wrcotiul appearance, elocutionary gifts, unaccompanied by
more Bolid qualities, weigh little with
an 'audience.'-great.-nvm hnve declared
to bo at onco tho fairest hnjl most
crttlrnl thnt can bo fnoed. What the
Houso n-quireM to win its approval
Is that the speaker really ban something to Bay. If ho has the Houso
trill listen, but if ho has nothing but
empty word,,, nothing enn save bim

into the doorway. The door is .closed and the same lusty official*., with
quite unnecessary ferociousness, proclaims, "Speaker at prayers." When
these arc over we may enter with tho
public.
TJio Clinin>��*r. V
What we see is oh oblong chamber
70 feet/ or so Ions. 45 feet broad and
as many hlgli, .of-dingy and fad-?d aspect. Opposite us is Mr. Speaker.
Before him-sit the three clerks ofthe
House, arrayed in wig and gown,
whoso business it is to minute the
proceedings and assist tho Speaker.
Only at raro intervals does it fall to
the lot of thc principal clerk to
emerge into prominence. But when a
now Parliament meets it becomes his
duty to rise and, without uttering a
sound, to point his forefinger at tho
leader of the House, who, forthwith
rises and proceeds to propose an honorable member for the Speakership.
It is" the unwritten rule now so well
settled as to be invariable, to renominate the occupant of the office
in tho previous Parliament. 'I his
practice was followed by the Conservative Government tliat succeeded
Mr, Gladstone's Home Kule Administration, although Mr. Gully's election had been'carried'by. only a
small majority on a party vote. It
is part of the fine deferenco paid by
Parliament to the chair and tho da-
termination to render. Mr. Speaker as
far as possiblo independent of party
influence and prejudice.
UlarUtuue'it Kmplmnis.
Jn front of the clerk's table is the
table of the House, sot lengthwise,3
littered with books and papers. Thero
is a writing desk on either side, regarding the contents of..which there
are legends and surmises believed to
havo a more substantial foundation
than the usual somewhat malicious
gossip. Be that as it may, these
desks are of great value to the oratorical tub-thumpers on the front
benches. They boar manifest tribute
to Mr. Gladstone's proclivities in
that way by the numerous dents
made by the ring which adorned tbat
distinguished man's little linger. His
remarkable emphasis in driving home
his points would indeed have earned
for him the admiration of the old
Scotswoman whose greatest compliment to the efficiency of her minister
��was-t!uLt-���he-had-'-knockit-twa-pu--
pits to pieces, and, dung thc guts
opt o' tliree Bibles." Well indeed
might ,Mr. Disraeli congratulate himself,, as*he publicly did, that so substantial a defence as the table of the
Houso stood between him and his
redoubtable antagonist.
On tho table rests the mace, of
which evory honorable member stuntls
much in awe. If hy any chance that
weapon was elsewhere while Mr.
Speaker is in the chair, it is impossible to say what would happen to
the fabric of tbo Stato. Before tho
revision ot the rules, the threat that
reduced a recalcitrant member to silence was that ho should forthwith
be named. A too curious man asked
Mr. Speaker Denison what, would occur' if he wore to be named. The
Speaker looked at him and said,
"Tho Lord only knows," a remark
which loft tho result aa vaguely terrible os before. It is tho only' answer possiblo to any enquiry about
the, properties of tho nrnco, which,
when tho House is in committee, in
tucked, away undor the table, to reappear on the return of tho Speaker'
to fhe chair.
Th* ��nr at fit* Heus-*-.,
* From tho tablo to tlio door runs a
strip of cocoauut matting, separating two tiers of longitudinal benches, revered with faded green leather.
Nenr tho swinging' ghxtiA door a broad
dark piece of joiittoor is sown into tbo
matting. It marks tho Bar of the
Houso, which ou occasion is furtbor
made visible by drawing a thin braN;j
rod across tho pneBage. From each
Rido of thin passage flijo.five tiern of
benches at a slope of about 30 degrees. Each wt of tiers In blHPCtod

Canada,, accustomed to the magnificent provision made for tlie Federal
and Provincial   Legislatures,    is the
absolute dearth of these in the Bri ��� t
tish   Lower   House.     There -are' no !
desks, no chairs, no electric tells* and
no   cuspidors.    Hon.    members     sit
cheek by jowl and on great occasions
wedged- and packed together like the j
proverbial herrings in a barrel. There j
is not even room on the floor of tho j
House for the representatives of tlie I
people ��� they    overflow     into     the |
cross     benches     and   .upstairs    'to'.]
thc     side    galleries.       Inconvenient
and archaic, as it all seems, it,.is, a
moot question'whether it is not roal-
ly an advantage in the conduct,    of
business.      There is . nothing" of- the
still formality inseparable from   the
apparatus of desks, tribunes ancj the
like.    There is a greater   eloetrical
sympathy  and force generated.   The
Houso is moro readily responsive to
thc ebb and flow of dobate. It all helps
to foster and develop that eminently
social fooling which Is ono ot    taio
hiost distinctive marks  of the  British House of Commons.   It has'becn
called the best club in London, and
if   not   quite as   clubablo   in these
ultra    democratic   days,   it   rotaihs
enough of the temperament, manners
and habits which render it still   so
fascinating   to.all   who come under
its spell. ���
���Who Coet Bomo.
At the conclusion of business the
old cry still resounds through the J
corridors, "Who goes home?" reminiscent ol the time when it was
dangerous to walk London's streets
in tho small hours unaccompanied.
Then the opposing whips, always the
best of friends, hold a confidential
confabulation and compare notes.
Seldom, indeed, does personal animosity enter into the political life of
the House of Commons in these
days. The finest feature of the House
is the anvious care with which all
parties seek to conserve, its traditions and to maintain all that makes for tho firm and fair conduct, of
debate. They have been greatly aided in this by a succession of Speakers conspicuous for strength of
character, clearness of jn;lgment and
un impartiality unquestionable and
unquestioned. While this temper exists the House of Commons will remain the finest fruit of an enlighten-
ed party system and _ln_tbis_ respect
a model" for "popular aSBrTmblies-
throughout the world.
A REFORMING KING.
Itantfril Habit of bi_i,l Drlnkine Opposed
by  King KUc��r.
King Edgar must lio credited with
doing a uoble work in the reformation of his subjects from tlie baneful
habit of hard drinking. This monarch
nearly anticipated by a thousand
years tho legislation proposed by the
United Kingdom Alliance. Acting on
the advice of Dunstan, says Strutt,
ho put down niatiy, ale-houses, suffering only ono to exist in a village or
small town. Ho further, ordained
that pins,or nails should be fastened
into drinking cups or horns, at stated distances, so that whoever should
drink beyond theso marks at one
draught should lie liable to a sovoro
punishment. Archbishop TJunstan was
equally Koaloum in cheeking intemperance in .the ckureh. Tin) following
extracts ure from a code drawn up
by bim:
"Lot no drinking be allowed iu tho
church.
"Let mwi be very temperate at-
church w'akoff and pray earnestly and
tiufter thero no drinking, or unscora-
linosa.
" J jot priests beware of druukqnnms,
and be diligent in warning and correcting uthorN in this matter,
"Lot no priest be an ble-sop, nor
in any way act the gleenmn."

fear poverty and thoy fear the responsibilities of wealth. They are, afraid

DESIGN FOR ATI OENAiI*ENT.UJ BOWXi. ^
sary to execute such' work, only a few,
special hints need be offered with the
designs. The bowl to b�� need is an ordinary twelve inch chopping tray, obtainable at any department store or
agricultural. supply bouse. Select an.
unwarped one and sandpaper it carefully. The difficulty of transferring m
pattern to its curved inner surface:
can be overcome by cutting the design into six e-qual sections, which
should thou be traced In the order of
their succession.
With the curved point carefully bura
the outline of the leaves, always trying to do as much as possible with one
movement of tho point. Half an inch
'fF^~tfie^tb"?"of"th"e"bowi-bTirn-the-nar-~
row band, which holds the design
within its limits. Within this band
make a background to. represent bas-'
ketworlc, which Is peculiarly effective
and appropriate on theso bowls. This '
is done by making closely together
short, deep strokes with the sharper
edge "of tho same curved'point witb
wbich the outlining bas been done.
The whole undcrsurface of the bowl,
with the exception of a band an Inch
wide at the top, should be burned with
this stroke. Tbe edges of the bowl,
hitherto untouched, should lie stained
with black walnut oil stain until tbelr
toue matches that of the burned wood
aud allowed to stand at least half a
day fully to absorb lhe color.
In polishing, a coat of was~ordlna��
ry floor wax prepared with turpentine
���in addition to the two coats of shellac, gives a dull luster that greatly In*
creases tho elegance of the bowl. Put
lt on with a cloth, Wben the shellac
Is fully dry, allow It to stand for half
an hour; tben rub It wJtb a brush, cotton cloth und an untiring energy. These
bowls are u��etl? for vurious practical
purposos-salad, fruits or carda,

As the stage drove Into Dawson In  the nnterailroad days we noticed the  body of a man banging from the limb  of a tree near the hotel, but no one expressed surprise or asked questions. It  was an hour after our arrival when a  little ol<Ji man came along on foot and  began making a fuss about the hanging. He said so much and said It in  such loud tones that the man who had  bossed the job finally turned on him  with:  "See yere, old man, what's all thla  row about anyway?"

The first trek revealed nothing but'  devastation, desolation, blockhouses.  and barbed wire.  Tho IteconitmcUoit.  "Tho last trek revealed houses  built up; cattle, horses, and live  stock of all descriptions gracing on  the veldt; immense tracts of ground  ploughed up; roads and drifts repaired; outlying towns, formerly in  ruins, how not only rebuilt and  prosperous, but growing with extraordinary rapidity. One found all thc  paraphernalia of local Government-  police magistrates, and officials of  all kinds. One found everywhere prospectors and others bent on the development of the country, no doubt  for tho sake of their own and for  their principals' pockets, but at "tho  same time benefiting the State. Ono  saw schools full of happy children.  One/came across new settlers-, full of  courage, enterprise, and hope- One  visited settlements of Dutch and  British.side by side, determined to  take their- part in the building up  of successful communities. There was  tho country, hardly froe from the  visible signs of war, and in spite of  all the setbacks and difficulties encountered since its oonclusion, beginning to assume tho uspect of a flourishing colony inhabited by a hopeful  _and_cleterjnined,people  ,   "The policy of looking -upon thc  Bow as a British subject from the  moment he became one has been carried out from the beginning. Great  Bsitain, at any rate, can rest content with her work of resettling  tho former inhabitants of her new  colonies.  "But tliere Is still another side of  the question to be considered. How  do tho Boers themselves look upon  what has been done for them and  what are their feelings toward their  now Government? Tho answer to  this question must to a very great  extent guide our future policy in tho  new colonics.  lhs Boers Graltful.  "Personally, I believe that the  average Boer has a distinct, feeling  of gratitude tor what has been dono  for hiin, and that ho is fully aware  of tho magnanimity of his how Gov-  ernment. But his gratitude is to a  degree discounted by the uncertainty  of tho future. The great major^y  are in tho Government's debt; and it  ls tlio doubt as to how far their  shard of tho irco gift of ������8,000,000  will got them out of debt which  looms largely in thoir winds.  "To my mind the hardest task is  still in front, namely, tho collection  oil debts, tho just assessment of  claims, nnd, above all, tho fulfilment  Of promise** made. It is tho manner  iii which obis work .is carried  out which will detormlno the  ftttitudo to be adopted by  tho greater proportion of th'? Boer  population.

"Tho Boom dn not accept tho now  order of things without considerable  misgiving, md thn hurt to their na^  tional pride cannot bo at onco healed; but I fully believe that for (.ha  most part they hnvo faith and conusance In tbelr new Government., and  that their confidence will bo kept ho  long a* we cairy out our professed  principle* ef Integrity nnd fair play.

They  sti!) share with thoir cousins of the  Cape Colony the aspiration of .some  day swing a great Afrikander "Republic in ..South 'Africa. The idle  dream of obtaining this by the sword  '������^s been put aside; b������t the dream  remmns, and the manner in which it  is to be realized is by  1'olilioaJ Intrigti������.  Those drcanifers have already -'-.begun  to sow the seed of discontent,among  the otherwise well-disposed inhabit'  ants; but whether it germinates ���������' or  not must depend upon the future  policy of the Government.  "At tho present' moment sutneient  labor is not available in the country, although in a few generations  tho natives, having been educated in  tho value of money, may in sufficient numbers offer their services..ia  order to obtain the same. But the  necessity is urgent from both an  economic and a political point ol  view. It is apparent to almost every  thinking man that tlie whole future  of the country depends, upon it3 instant prosperity.  "The very first thing whicli the  Government should do in South Africa is to permit and offer every  facility for the importation of Asiatic labor. The second requirement,is  capital for tho development of tbe  agricultural possibilities."

The British Medical Journal gives  particulars of this form of intoxication. "It says that Major Jennings,  on learning tliat tho men had been  eating c*rdite, mado experiments  himself. On .sucking a strand, her  found it sweet, pleasant, and pungent, but it resulted in a headache  which lasted for thirty-six'* hours.  .'Dissolved in tea it produces almost  immediate exhilaration, ���������'inciting almost demoniacal actions," followed  by a heavy sleep and stupor of from  five to twei"e.' hours, according to  the quantity taken.

The Birmingham Daily Mail makes  some significant comments upon JLon-  don life as reiiected in "London Statistics, 1902-1903." The weighty  volume, says the reviewer, "can  scarcely be described as a record of  London life. Great as is the volume  of 800 and odd pages, it would not  be big enough to notice till the romance���������the comedy and the tragedy���������  the light and thc shade of that wonderful city. Nevertheless, this book,  prosaiely named, gives us some interesting and at times unexpected information with regard to the life of  the people, in London in tho years  ������1902~1903r-'While-ono������is-prepared -to-  be told tliat tho population of the  administrative county is 4,536,541.  that of 'Greater London,' which includes tlie area of tho city and metropolitan polico, and 'every oarish  of which thc wholo is within 15 miles  of Charing Cross, or oi which part  is within 12 miles of Charing Cross,'  is 6,581,402���������a rather disappointin-?  figure, one's ideas on that subject being nearer ten millions than six  "Yet another mild surprise   awaits  us in the statement that tho rate of  increase of the population appcai-s to  bo slowing down, having beon    onl.v  16.8 per cent, in the ton years 1891-  1901,    a smaller percentage   of  increase than has ever been  previously  recorded,    From a health point   of  view, again, London is a great   deal  better than most peoplo would   imagine.    The death rate in 1901   was  17.1 per 1,000, .as   compared    with  18.6 in the jfrevious year.    Thus  it  appears that tho London death rato  waa lower than that of any   of   tho  groat cities of .the kingdom,    oxcept  Bristol and Leicester, uud lower also  than    tliat of tosy foreign   capitals*,  except tho small towns of   Amsterdam, 13ri>-.isds and   Stockholm.     In  that   same   year���������1901.���������thqro , wore  fewer fatal street accidents   than  in  any year  since   l8SG-*"nnm������ly   302.  Tho smnUnesa   of thi������ figure   is   an  cloquont   testimony   to   iho skillful  manner in wbich London   traffic   i������  regulated.   Somo of the metropolitan  streets nro tho most contfwted streets  in tho world, yet tho traffic goes   on  without many accldontn.

The months of this calendar ase eo  rotafed that each corresponds with  the moon, containing 29 or 30days  ���������not.e shorter or lunger. Each  new moon's first day is the feast  day of a new month. The calculation is made by a hoard of learned  astronomers in Pekin for period of  three years. Every third year is  leap year, and contains 13 months;  the others contain 12 months each,  the different reckoning in time  making the odd mouths.
