While some people object, and  and say they intend to spend  Victoria day outside the city, yet  there are many more who believe in making it a gala day at  home.  A meeting of those interested  in the sports of that day was held  in the city hall Friday   evening  last.    Various matters were re -  ported on and   discussed. A  committee was appointed to wait  on Mr] J. Matthews to ask permission to have the fiie-bosses  take .. subscriptions. Later in  the evening the committee returned and stated-that Mr, Matthews had granted permission,:^  Little River has a baseball  team aud Mr. Coeone qf the  management committee, reported  that they were anxious to have  a game with a team from here  on that day. It is likely that  Mr. Chas. Grant, captain of the  Hart baseball-club will resurrect  his old stand-bys axid give the  visitors a run for their money.

A joint meeting of thc School  board and thc City council wa*  held in the Council Chambers on  Mmtdnv evening to discuss the  pt$$pn\. school  ni tun tion.  After considerable discussiou  It was moved by Mr Bate that  rnnwdrtTtner the amount of taxes  the government receives ou property outside the city limits thc  meeting feels that so far as the  school is concerned the city docs  not receive enough support. Aid  McLttod secouded motion and it  carried. Meeting then adjourned.  A Country Trip.  Last week Messrs. P. Phillips,  Harrison, accompanied by the  editor of this paper, took a "Cul-  tus Coolie" through Comox valley, or at least a part of it. The  beautiful rains of the previous  few days, including that day,  had put a growing appearnce on  the fields, presenting a picture  that would gladden the heart of  the most pessimistic. Everywhere was seen signs of prosperity. Many of the farmers spoken  to intend to make extensive improvements during the coming  summer and fall, and not a few  new buildings are in the course  of erection, some nearing completion,  Courtenay is a busy place,  Messrs Brydenaiid Kilpatrick  are busy building a dam and  water course to supply water  power for their new sawmill.  They are spendiiig thousands of  dollars, much of which will uo  doubt benefit the busy little burg.  The Conrtenay River that day  was jammed full of logs belonging to the Chemainns Lumber  Company. In fact they had come  down in such large numbers that  aTTlmairbeud'in^he'river-.they-  had piled up so as to partly divert the course of the river. Men  were engaged" in-*" clearing the  river, and as a party standing on  the bridge remarked over a million feet went down that day.  Passing up the settlement and  taking what is called the upper  road one gets a fine view of the  surrounding country. A pleasant half hour was spent chatting  with Mr. McQuillan, who owns  about twelve acres of laud aud a  house, from which he eau enjoy  most excellent scenery for many  miles around and have the Jpriv.  ilege of seeing the boats come  into Comox harbor.1 Last year  he was offered a handsome sum  for his property, but would not  entertain, as he says, ho is making a home for his old age.  Passing further on Mr Frank  Childs came out to have a friendly chat, aud his face beamed  when asked about the future of  the district* He remarked we  have beautiful farms, abundance  of timber, and some think wc  have the coal, at least one company docs as they have already  bought the coal rights at ������40  per acre,. To convince us regarding the possibilities of the  district from a sportsman's poiut  of view, he brought out a deer's  head which he was lately mouut-  ed, and was what remained of  three deer shot last seasou. Mr  CWtim* nnd some of his associates  ml seriously ^onsMpriuK the  proposition of buildiug a small  bone factory in the near future.  Th������������ n**xt rancher called on  was Mr James Turnbiill, who  with his mother, lives on the old  homestead. He has forty acres  with about thirty cleared, aud  has great faith iu the possibilities of his Uttlo ranch.   He hat  almost finished his spring work  and is planning many improv-  ments. It is a home which auy  young mafl ought to feel proud  of and "Jimmy" certainly does.  Much more could be said abont  the'beautiful ranches in this  part of the district and later it is  intended to take another trip a*  round for a friendly chap.  After enjoying lunch at the  well known hostelry of Mr.  Johnson, a pleasant drive was  taken to view the district around  Comox village. Mr. J.B. Holmes  since our last visit has added  improvements to the Port Augusta and is jprepared for the  tourist trade this coming summer. Just here it might be said  that it better known, we aee uo,  reason why Mr- Holmes could  not have the pleasure of entertaining guests, at all seasons of  the year- Comox is an ideal  summer resort, where boating,  fishing, and shooting can be had  in, abundance.  A beech combers association  has been formed by the  McOlusky Bros, Mr. R Hill, and  R. Ross Napier. In Mr. Hill's  beautiful little launch the Itcka,  the company are busily engaged  in rushing to completion their  first-boom-ofUogs. '  A visit  to Comox,  would not  be complete without calling  on,  Mr. Mcbouald,ofiheJJlk Hotel    .  who has always'a fund' of good  stories on band.     No more en  ertaining   gentlemen    can   be  found in Comox Valley,  Investors from the outside will  soon be raking a lively interest  iu farm lands iu Comox and  thereabouts, and it is to be hoped that those having land for  sale will not be too avaricious  and place prohibitive prices upon their holdings and th������s discourage enterprising capitalists  and force them to purchase elsewhere. 1  MAY, SPECIALS  Offer No ,1���������.

For many years  fun bad been a thing far from their  thought.  "Play checkers?" he inquired.  "Afraid we couldn't," said Miss Letitla, answering for both.  "Old Sleage?"  She shook her bead, smiling.  "1 don't wish to lead you into recklessness," the teacher remarked, "but  I'm sure you wouldn't mind being  happy."  Miss S'mantha had a startled -look.  "In���������in a���������proper way," be added.  "Let'B be joyful. Perhaps we could  play *I spy.''*  "YI" they both .exclaimed, laughing  silently.  "Never ate chicken pie like that," he  added In all sincerity. "If I were a  poet I'd indite an ode 'written after  eating some of the excellent chicken  pie of the Misses Tower.' I'm going to  have some like It on my farm."  In reaching to help himself he touched the teapot, withdrawing his hand  quickly.  "Burn ye?" said Miss S'mantha.  "Yes. but I like it." said he, a bit embarrassed.   "I often go and���������put my  hand on a hot teapot if I'm having too  much fun." ;.   ;  They looked up at him, puzzled.  "Ever slide dowu hill?" he inquired,  looking from one to the other after a  bit of silence. "  "Oh, hot since we were little," said  Miss Letitia, holding her biscuit daintily after taking a bite none too big for  a bird to manage.  ���������'Good tun," said he.   "Whisk you  -back^tb-chi^ood-in-a~3iffy^~Folks-  ought to slide down hill more'n they  do.  It isn't a good idea to be always  climbing."  "'Frald we couldn't etan' it," said  Miss S'mantha tentatively. Under all  her man fear and suspicion lay a furtive recklessness.  "Y, no!" the other whispered, laughing silently.  The pervading silence of that house  came flooding in between' sentences.  For a moment Trove could hear only  the gurgle of pouring tea and the faint  rattle of china softly handled. When  he felt as if the silence were drowning hlra he began again:  "Life is nothing but a school. I'm a  teacher, and I deal in rules. If you  want to kill misery load your gun  with pleasure."  "Do you know of anything for Indigestion?" said Miss S'mantha, charging her Rlckly voice with a firmness  calculated to discourage any undue  familiarity,,  "Just the thing���������a sure cure!" said  be emphatically,  "Como high?" she Inquired.  "No; It's cheap and plenty."  "Where do you send?"  "Oh," said he, "you will have to go  after lt!"  "What Is Jt called?"  "Fun," said the teacher quickly, "and  tbe place to find It Is out of doors. It  grows everywhere on my farm, I'd  rather havo a pair of skates than all  tho medicine thle side of China."  Sbo set down bor teacup and looked  up at bim. Sho was beginning to think  him a fairly safe ond well behaved  man, although sho would bave boon  moro comfortable If bo had been abut  in a cage,  "If I had a pair o' skated," said she  faintly, with a look of Inquiry at ber  sister* "I dunno but I'd try 'om."  Mice Letitla begun to laugh silently.  "I'd begin wltb overshoes," said tbe  teacher. "A pair of overshoes and a  walk on tbe cruet every morning bo-  fore broakfait; increase tho dose gradually."  Tbe two old maids wore now more  at eaie wltb tbolr guoat Hie kindly  manner and plentiful good spirits had  begun to warm snd cheer thom, Miss  S'mantha even cherlihed a secret re-  atjixe to anda u mo vhauve came.  After tea SJJuo Trove, against their  protest, began to help with tho dl������he*.  MIh S'mantba prudently managed to  koep tbe itore botwoon blm and hor.  A liro and candles wero burning In the  puriur, lie asked periuituiiou, however,  to stay where he could talk wlUi thom.  Tunk Hosely, tho man of all work,  came In for Ida supper, He was an odd  character. Some, wltb a finger on their  foreheads, confided tho opinion that be  traa "a llttla off." All agreed ho wai  no fool. In a tone that loft It open to  argument. Ho bad a small figure and  a big squint Hii perpetual squint and  brlitly, abort beard were a great Injustice to blm. Tbey gave blm a look se  verer than he deserved. A limp and  leaning shoulder complete the Inventory of external traits. Having eaten,  he set a candle In the old barn lantern.  "Waal, mister," said he when all was  ready, "come out an' look at my boss."  The teacher went with him out under  a sky bright with stars to the chill and  gloomy stable.  "Look at me," said Tunk, holding up  the lantern as be turned about. "Gosh  all fishhooks, I'm a wreck!"  "What's the matiter?" Sidney Trove  Inquired.  "All sunk ln-~right here," Tunk an-  ewered impressively, his hand to his  chest.  "How did it happen?"  "Kicked by a hoss; that's how lt happened," was the significant answer.  "Lord! I'm all shucked over to one  Bide. Can't ye see it?"  "A list to sta'b'rd; that's what they  call lt, I believe," said the teacher.  "See how I limp," Tunk went on,  striding to 6how his pace. "Ain't it  awful?"  "How did that happen ?"  "Sprung my ex," he answered, turning quickly, with a significant, look;  "thrown from a 6Ulky in a hoss race  an' sprung my ex. Lord! Can't ye see  it?"  - The teacher nodded, not knowing  quite how to take him.  "Had my knee unsot, too," he went  on, lifting his knee as be turned the  light upon it. "Jes' put yer finger  'here,/   *aid   he,   indicating   a  slight  r.-*l -  Sidney Trove began to help with the  dimhet.  protuberance. "Lord, It's big as a bog  spavin!"  He bad planned to provoke a query,  and it came.  ,. "How did you get it?" x  ^���������Kicked ag'ln," said Tunk sadly.  "Heavens, I've had my share o' bang-  In'! Can't conquer a skittish boss  without suffertn' somo���������not allwus,  Now, here's a hoss," he added as they  walked to a stall. "Ht ain't much t'  look at, but"-  He paused a moment as be neared  tbo borae-a white and ancient palfrey,  He stood thoughtfully on "cocked ankles," ovory leg In a bandage, tall and  mane braided.  "Got ap, Prince," Tunk shouted as  be guvo him a slap, Frinco moved  aside, betraying evidence of age and  Infirmity.  "But"��������� Tunk repented, wltb emphasis,  "Ugly?* tbe toncbor queried.  "Ugly!" said Tunk, as If tbe word  wero all too feeble for tbo fact In band.  "That's what ho Is! Look out! Don't  get too nigh him! He ain't no con*  scIodco, that boss ain't"  "Is he fast?"  "Groased llgbtnln'l" said Tunk, sbak-  log his bead. "Won twenty-seven  races."  "You'ro a good doal ot a horseman,  I take It," said tbe teacher.  "Waal, some," said be, expectorating  ���������hrtup-MfnUy, ���������"hnr T dein't hnvo *\t>  chance her*. What d'ye 'spect of a  man llvln' wltb tbem ol' maids?"

Therein Vanity  was the prodigious fat man, Memory  tbo dwarf and Veracity Uie living skeleton. When Vanity rose to ebew himself tbe others left tbe stage.

In truth, be  | was an arrant end nttnnnine bumJMi*  ft has been said that children are all  given to lying In some degree, but seeing the folly of it ty good time, if, indeed, they are not convinced of its  wickedness, train tongue and feeling  into the way of truth. The respect for  truth that is the beginning of wiSdom  had not come to Tunk. He continued  to He with the cheerful inconsistency  of a child. The hero of bis youth had  been a certain driver of trotting horses  who had a limp and a leaning shoulder.  In Tunk tie limp and the leaning  shoulder were an attainment that had  come of no sudden wrench. Such is the  power of example, he admired, then  imitated and at last acquired them.  One cannot help thinking what graces  of character and person a like persistency would have brought to him.  But Tunk had equipped himself with  horsy heroism, adorning it to his own  fancy. He had never been kicked, hs  had never driven a race or been  hurled from a sulky at full speed.  Prince, that ancient palfrey, was the  most harmless of all creatures and  would long since have been put out of  misery but for the tender consideration of his owners. And Tunk���������well,  they used to say of him that if he had  been truthful hocouldn't have been alive.  "Some time," Trove thought, "his folly may bring confusion upon wise  beads."

Ofttlmes I bave seen a tall ship glide  by against tbe tide as if ��������� drawn by  some invisible towline with a hundred  strong arms pulling it Her sails hung  unfilled'; her streamers were drooping;  she had neither, side wheel nor stern  wheel. Still she moved bn stately in  serene triumph, as If with her own  life. But I knew that on the other side  of the ship, hidden beneath the great  hulk that swam so majestically, there  was a little tolling steam tug with a  heart Of fire and arms of Iron that was  hugging lt close and dragging It bravely on, and I knew that If the little  steam tug untwined her arms and left  the tall ship It would wallow and roll  about and drift hither and thither and  go off witb refluent tide, no man knows  whither. And so I have known more  than one genius; high decked, full  freighted, wide Balled, gay pennoned,  tbat but for tbe bare tolling arms and  brave, warm-beating heart of the faithful little wife that nestled close to bim  so that no wind or wave could part  them would soon have gone down  stream and been heard of no more.���������  Oliver Wendell Holmes.  LATE SIR WILLIAM KINGSTON.  ��������� i.**j-i-  CLERKS' HOURS IN GERMANY  an Effort to Do A war With the Lon*  JMldday Interval.  A discussion is going onln commercial circles in Germany regarding the  respective merits of the English and  Geilnan systems of arranging the  hours of work in banks, company offices and big business houses.  It has always been customary In  Germany for clerks and accountants  and all workers of this class to begin  work considerably earlier than is the  case������in England and to terminate work  In the evening much later than is usual  in London." Work begins In German ���������  offices, as a rule, at 8 o'clock In tbe  morning and is frequently not Concluded before 8 o'clock In the evening.  Partial compensation for the early beginning and late termination Is obtained by taking a two hours' pause at  midday, but even with this break the  total nours worked In German offices  .conslderably���������exceed-those-lniEhgiisb-  offlces, especially as a half holiday Saturday ls still an exceptional arrangement in Germany.  An agitation is now going on for the  abolition of the long midday integral  and of the Introduction of the hours of  work usual in English offices, Many  German business men, however, resist  the Innovation and persist ln maintaining the old fashioned system.  Many German stockbrokers, company directors, directors of banks and  cnptp.ins of industry adopt a curious  arrangement by which they dine at 8  o'cIock ln the afternoon and afterward  return to their offices from 6 till 8  o'clock ln tho evening.  Those Germans who have practical  experience of office work ln England  are unanimous In declaring that English clerks do Just as much in six or  seven hours as German clerks in nine  or ten hours and advance this as a  strong argument in favor of the general adoption of the English hours of  work ln offices.  A few of tbe big banks ln Berlin  bave already got ae far ae a working  day of eight hours, from 9 o'clock In  the morning till 5 o'clock ln tbe after*  noon, with two hours lees Saturday,  when thoy close at 8 o'clock.���������Berlin  Letter ln London Standard.

Hugh Miller, the Scottish geologist  arid writer, was one of the most illustrious of sleepwalkers. Miller, who  had been addicted to somnambulism in  his youth, found his restlessness return  while he was engaged upon his "Testimony of the Rocks/' He used to  wake in the morning feeling, aa be  said, as if he had been abroad In the  night wind, dragged by some Invisible  power and ridden by witches. On the  night of his death he slept alone. In  the; morning tbey found him stretched  dead on the floor with a bullet through  bis breast. He had written a note to  his wife: "My brain burns. I must  have walked, and a fearful dream rises'  upon me. I cannot bear the horrible  thought My brain burns as the recollection grows." So Intense had been  the poor fellow's anguish that to make  certain his end he had torn back shirt  and,vest and placed the muzzle of the  pistol to his naked flesh.���������St James'  Gazette.  The Fractnred Lear.  A visitor was going through the children's surgical ward of one of the city  hospitals when he spied a little fellow  ���������with^bls-legs^in-the-air-andThis-weight-  resting oh his head and shoulders.; Going closer, he saw that the boy's feet  were fastened with ropes which passed  through a pulley above. At the other  ends of the ropes'were weights, just  heavy enough to hold the boy's legs In  the air without lifting him entirely off  the bed.  "What's all that about?" asked tbe  visitor.  "Doesn't Ifhurt him?"    -'.. -  "Not at all," answered the physician  wbo was accompanying. "He doesn't  look unhappy, does he? That's the  way we always handle fractures of  the leg with a child, Otherwise the  youngsters squirm around so that tbey  .work the splints loosed Only one of  this boy's legs Is Injured, but they are  both swung ln tbe air for bis greater  comfort"  Sorrows of m Humorlet,  "Tbls thing of being a humorist Is  about tbe saddest thing I know," sighed Simeon Ford,' "An ordinary person  can have bla moods and humors as be  pleases, but I must always be on tbe  job. I am constantly being Invited out,  not because I'm liked for myself alone  or because of my manly beauty, but  because I am expected to entertain tbe  assemblage. Tbe rest of tbe company  may be as dull as dishwater, but if I  do not shake up tbe gathering witb a  few jokos tbe boBtess glares at me and,  really feels resentful, I may be sunk  In the slough of despond, but just as  soon as I take my seat all loan forward  and eye me expectantly. My eon, never get a reputation for being tunny. It  Is tbo most mournful thing on oarth."  A Bale of Cotton.

"Canada's    First   Great    Physician"  Title   Often   Applied   Him���������How  He Deserved the Honor,  "Canada's first great physician"  was a description often applied to Sir  William Hingston, who has died in  Montreal. On the principle that great  men lived before Agamemnon, the  popular idea of Sir William may have  been unjust, but it is undoubted that  he was the most famous medical man  Canada had produced ;?p to the time -  Prof. Osier became so widely known.  His career has been no longer than  it has been distinguished, both in  public life and in his profession. In  the latter he stood quite abreast of tlie  most successful American doctors for  a quarter of a century, and hardly a  week' went by without bringing to him  some patient from the United States  who believed that in his own country  there was no physician quite as capable as the doctor at Montreal. Although 78 years old at the time of his ,  death, Sir. William's standing among  the medical men of the country remained what it had been for a generation.  Won Honors Abroad.  He was born in Montreal* in 18a9.  His father had come to Canada as  adjutant of the famous    Hundredth  Regiment and fought    through    tho  War of 1912, After the disbanding cf      ,  the regiment, in 1819, Col. Hingston  took up his residence on the Chateau-  guay River. He died when bis son  was only 18 months old. William received his early education in Bedu-  harnois, and then, at the. age of 15,  entered the Montreal    College.    His>  first year there gavo a promise of ai  brilliant future, for he captured three-  first and two second prizes out of a  possible five. His first intention, after  leaving school, was to become a chemist, and he spent two years in preparation. At the end of this time ho-  had  concluded to become a doctor,  and entered McGill,    graduating   in  1851. Afterward he proceeded to take  a post-graduate course at Edinburgh,  and0 continued his studies in several  European  countries.    Of honors    he  won in Europe one was membership  in  the  Imperial  Leopold    Academy,  and he was the first Canadian to so  distinguish himself. Then he returned to Montreal and began the serious  business of his profession.  For surgery he had a peculiar aptitude, and5,  it is recorded that in 1867, on a visit  to: Edinburgh, he performed a most  -difficult-bperation-at���������the-request���������of~���������  Sir James Simpson, one of the greatest surgeons living, and a keen ad-  miter of the Montreal doctor.  The First In Canada.  As surgeon of the Hotel Dieu Hospital, he was able to practice his art  over a wide field, and soon his skill  was known far and wide. It was when  filling this post that Dr. Hingston had  the honor of performing for the first  time in Canada a number of difficult  operations, removal of the kidney, excision of tbe knee, and excifrion of the  tongue and lower jaw being among*  them. He was one of tho organizers,  of the McGill University Society, and  a resuscitator of the Medicc-Chirur-  gical Society of Montreal, the first  {secretary of the Dominion Medical  Society, and afterwards its president.  When Bishop's College Medical School  was organized he was appointed professor of Burgory, but soon resigned.  In 1878 he was chosen by the International Council to represent Canada,  at the Philadelphia Medical Congress,  ond in 1887, when the congress met  at Washington, he was again offered  this honor. So one might continue the*  list of professional honors, concluding-  with knighthood in 1305. There is.  hardly any distinction open to ' n.  Canadian medical man that he hacJ  not received.  Mayor of Montreal.  As a publio man Dr. Hingston first  oame beforo the peoplo of Montreal,  as a oandidate for the Mayoralty in  1875. Ho reoeived about ten votes to ���������*  his opponent's one, and, as he stated  at the time, "without having spent  one moment of time or one shilling of  money to obtain a position which no  one should seek, but which, coming  as it did, no one was at liberty to de-  olino." Ho was re-elected by acclamation, but declined a third term. The*  period of his Ohio! Magistracy was.  ono of unusual importance, especially  at tho time of the Guibord affair. For  the wine and moderate manner in  which ho discharged his duties Mayor  Hingston received the thanks of the*  Governor-General, Lord Dufferin.  Ho has been a frequent contributor  to tbo medioal Journals, and not in*  frequently his papers Interested a far  wider field of readers than the medical profession, For example a well-  considered essay on the climate of  Canada and its relation to human  life was a step in removing an ignorant prejudice that is now fast disappearing,  Hit Back.

Mr. Henry Hall, writing from Fort  William, says: "Having proved how  beneficial Zam-Buk is in cases of  cuts, skin injuries and diseases, I determined to keep a supply handy.  Being engaged to go" on a survey, I  thought it, would be a most useful  thing to fake along. I obtained a  supply in Fort William and very well  it was I did so. I may say that  pretty nearly] every day it was called  into requisition by one or other of  the party for cuts, bruises, burns, or  some injury or other. It is wonderful how quickly Zam-Buk takes the  soreness out of cuts, burns, bruises  and injuries; and on our survey it  earned golden opinions from all who  had occasion to try it. I have found  it very fine for skin disease, and I  can strongly recommend it as a household balm."  Mr. Lascelles Scott, one of the leading, Government   analysts, says:    "I  "have-nxr-hesitation���������in-eertiiying^the  entire purity of Zam-Buk, which in  ' my opinion is excellently adapted for  skin injuries and diseases." Zam-  Buk cures cuts, scalds,.burns, bruises;  eczema, scalp sores, ringworm, ulcers, abscesses, chapped places,  Spring pimples, blood poison, chronic  abscesses, etc. As an en\bi*ocation  it relieves rheumatism, neuralgia and  .sciatica, All druggists .and stores  sell at 50c. a box, or from Zam-Buk  Co., Toronto, for price. 6 boxes .sent  for $2.50.

Platinum, ounce for ounce, is   now  worth .more than half as much again  as gold, while the demand for platinum, like the demand for other met- ���������  als, has increased.    There has been  talk of an export, duty on the metal  produced   in 'Kussia,    and a rumor;  that such a duty waB about to  be.  imposed was, given credit for causing  the recent sharp advance in the price  of, the metal;  but    the  export    tax  plan, it is reported, has been definite1  ly abandoned, and the Russian government will make special   inducements    to     encourage     prospecting.  French investors are heavily interested" in the industry.   The largest producer and also an extensive buyer of  crude platinum in   the Urals is   a  French company operating a large refinery in Paris.    It should be noted  that the imports of platinum into the  ] United States, which is a large consumer, during 1905, were valued    at  $2,173,263,    as    against   $1,879,155 in  1S04, an increase   in value of $2������)4,������  108.    Considering   ue  increased    demand for platinum, the gain in importation is slight,  but if the high  price and scarcity of the metal    be  taken into    account the    wonder is  that there was not a large decrease  in the quantity imported.���������Industrial  World:  tmm  Roof your Buildings with "EASTLAKE"  Metallic Shingles  Made in Canada 21 yeara  "o   ���������* *" " '������������������'".,,���������.���������,���������.*  Warranted made of better material, more accurately and scientifically constructed, will last  longer and cost less for labor in applying than any other metal shingles.

A- -    WEDNESDAY,     MAY; 15, 1907  The west, particularly Alberta  And Saskatchewan lias among its  new comers many Americans,  and they are making estimable  Canadian citizens, and in the  words of Si i Wilfred, Lau rier  jare <i practical people who have  jqujttgd  the  United    States   for  Canada because they believed  it  ft better ���������.country with better laws  administrated ten-fold times better than the laws of the United  States, Wonder what these Ajner  icans think about the new postal arrangement whereby papers  going across the border must be  prepaid by   postage   stamps at  the ordinary   transient   rate of  ���������I   cent for  four   ounces,   This  pieans    $3.00    added    to   the  price of a daily   paper and    50  cents a year to   that of a weekly, There is no doubt   but tftnt  the newspapers of western Can*.  ada,ifrom the large dailies to the  pmall weeklies, have been very  effective immigrant agents.  Copies of Canadian papers at request  of those already in Canada  have beeu sent to intending  settlers    and   of course*    lm\e  been shown to. their neighbors who  in turn   have in many cases become   subscribers.    Eventually  these   peop le   came across   the  litje and settled. The new scheme  of the   Postmaster-General    is  lijtely to cut out  thousands   of  these   inexpensive immigration  agencies,   which   cost the government less  than    the   lavish  subsidy to those mysterious persons as to   whose   identity only  "Mr Preston held the key, Uesides  it has been and   is the boast of  the department that   there is a  surplus.

Superstitions as to toads having been  early Invulcated, It has been exceed*  Ingly difficult to get rid of them.  One  remnant of this ancient credulity still  exists.   It is In regard to tho absolute  imperishable  character of the toad.  There  are  well  educated Americana  who believe tbat a toad bops out alive  from a slab of stone though he has  been Imprisoned there for several mll-  llous of years.   We give In brief Dr.  Buckland's experiments with toads la  1825.   He took twelve toads and bad  the toads put ln twelve' cells cut la  sandstone, and over these he put plates  of glass.   They were buried In a garden for over a year.   When exhumed  they wero all dead.   Then some wppo  put In porous sandstone, rind ai tbo  end of a year a few were found "greatly emaciated."   When burled for as-  other year, they all died.   Toads were  Inclosed In wood, and they all died.  The conclusion Is that, deprived of atmosphere or without food, toads must  die.   lf a toad as a tadpole could have  entered a crevice ln a rock, lt might  have grown, but would bave died In  time for want of air and food.   This  toad nonsense ls so Ineradicable that it  ls supposable It never can be dissipated.

Boots or shoes that fit tightly  prevent the free circulation of the blood  by pressure; but when, on the contrary,  they do not embrace the foot too firmly,  the space left between the shoe and the  stocking has a good supply of warm air.  The second rule is never to sit in damp  shoes. It is often supposed that unless  shoes are positively wet it' is unnecessary to change them while the feet are  at rest. This is one of the greatest fallacies, for when the least dampness is  absorbed into the sole in Its evaporation  it absorbs the heat from the foot, and  thus perspiration is dangerously checked. This can be easily proved by trying  the experiment of neglecting the rule.  The feet will be found cold and damp  after a few minutes, although, on tak-  'ng off the shoe and examining it. it will  appear to be quite dry.

If you  have allowed yourself to become  awkward and heavy, it will take very  serious attention on your part to reduce  this superfluous fat. It is only through  vigorous exercise and profuse perspiration that this can be accomplished.  An actress famous for her beauty, and  now approaching middle life, has solved  this Important problem by swathing in  flannel the overdeveloped parts and  throughout an hour's vigorous exercise,  drinking freely of hot water; These are  legitimate aids ln reducing flesh.  Choose a few exercises and practice  them faithfully, constantly increasing  the number of repetitions and you will  be rewarded by a return of symmetry  and elegance of figure.  To make the waist small and flexible  ���������try this exercise of body raising. Stretch  out on top of a table face down. With  the feet held, or caught at one end of  the table, bend the body at the hips  over the opposite end of the table. Now,  with feet firmly held, hands at back of  the neck, elbows well back and head  up, chin in, bring the torso to a horizontal position; bend downward toward  the floor, then backward to horizontal  position again; repeat three times. Do  not practice this exercise if you find  it strains the muscles of the back, as  serious results may ensue without  proper precautions.  Always have an at  tendant when this exercise is taken.

If we don't see our chances for  writing a certain article, for doing a  particular sketch, for designing; a little accessory of dress, somebody else,  who is a little.more on the alert, will,  and she'll get the credit fox it, t������c������  RAlNY^DAY CLOSET *  RAINY days often mean trouble in  the household where there are  ������ plenty of' children, and some  one has suggested that the mother of  such a brood would do well to provide  herself with a rainy-day closet.  ���������"To-it-wilI"find*-thelr-way^special~play-"  things, reserved for state occasions;  pictures, scrap books, paste pots, scissors, old magazines and paint boxes.  Anything, in fact,- that can provide indoor amusement. When tpe rainy day  comes round the closet may be opened  and a distribution of its blessings made.  . Children delight in novelty, and the  very fact that there Is a special treat  reserved for the days when the sun  doesn't shine will go a long way toward alleviating any disappointment over  the putting off of out-of-door Tames and  pleasures,  FORTUNE-TELLING, in one form  or another,  will probably never  lose its popularity as a means of  entertaining people.   Most of us  are egotists enough to enjoy peeps into  the future, even if we've no faith in it.  To the would-be amateur fortuneteller a word of caution should be  given: don't tell bad news, Jeven if  the cards reveal it, to any one, no  matter how impressiv it makes the  fortune; and be particularly careful���������  what you tell those credulous mortals  who are to be found in eyery group, lf  you do tell bad luck, tell it in conjunction with something good, so that  its force is broken. Otherwise, some  one is certain to worry over it, ridicu-  ous as taking such things ,serlously  ieems to those of us whose nerves  are not easily upset.  Ask the person whose fortune you  are to tell to make a wish, while you  shuffle and reshuffle the cards. Then  lay them, face down, upon the table  and ask her to cut them In three piles.  Look at the cards In each pile separately. If, in the one in, which the  nine of hearts is found, there are  two aces,' the cards foretell the getting; of her wish.  Discard the spot cards below the  sevens, and take out a queen (or  king) fo represent your "client." For  .a^dark_w,oman_the_xighL9ueen_is_that_  of spades', dark hair and blue eyes  take a heart, chestnut hair and brown  eyes a club, and a fair woman a diamond.  Lay the face card down on the fable  and lay'out four at a time of the pack  left after discarding, placing one on  the left of the face card, one on the  right, one above and one below. The  cards the card faces (the queen's head  is rlwayB turned to one side) tell  what is to be; those behind her, what  has passed; those over the card, what  's, or will he, in her mind, and those  oelow her, what she triumphs over.       .  The significance of the cards, acconr- '  Ing to an old colored "mammy" whose*  readings were a never-failing source c*"  delight to "young white folks," and cu ^  creator of awe among her own people,  are as follows: , -/A  Spades: ace���������love, or, coming upside-  down, sickness; ten���������something immedi-..  ate, or a disappointment (the "or," of-  course, depending upon ������.he other cards- *  which appear with it); nine���������despair, or.  ��������� a quarrel; eight���������in the far future;,  seven���������vexation, annoyance.

While  he is to be congratulated on his  recovery, the fact remain* that a  mau who has been through such  bu experience is apt to feel that  he has been up against a piece of  very hard luck���������Hedley Gaxette.  While the  clerks   and  merchants enjoyed their half holiday  yesterday afternoou, as they  do  every Tuesday   afternoon,   the  clerks of Vancouver are not   so  fortuuate.   Over 700 clerks have  signed a petition asking for  a  half holiday on every  Wednesday during the months of June,  July aud August,   There may  be objections on the part of merchants to the inauguration of a  half holiday, but "all work and  noplaywakM Jack a dull boy"  and the enjoyment of a little  sunshine these  beautiful summer days should be the privilege  of every clerk  on the  Pacific  Coast.   There is another movement that will engage the attention of merchants at no distant  date, and that is of closing   up  shop from r p.m. to 6 p.m. on  Saturdays especially during the  summer months,   If we are cor  rectly informed Victoria bas taken the initiative in this  matter.
