Mr. Balfour defended the action of the  Unionist government in its retention  of office on the ground that it was  essential to wait until the Anglo-  Japanese treaty was finally concluded and other necessary features of  the government program were carried out. This had been done with  the exception of the Disttrtliubioin  Bill, an outline of which had been  given to' parliament, but divisions  within the Unionist party led the  government to the conclusion that it  would be impossible at present to  carry out measures which denanded  abso.ulo unity.

The  Popukir  mis'.-oncoptions   with       ic  gard   to disease  was the theme of a.u  address    delivered   by  Sir   Frcdeiic1:  Treves  to    Edinburgh     Pnilosoplncal  Institution recently.  Sir  Frederick Treves said  the prevailing idea  of disease  was   of something   that  was     woeful  and  malignant,    e\ii in origin  and     in    intent,  evil in   effect.   The popular view was  that disease  was a calamity,  that its  end was   destruction, and   that it was  purposeless except  in  the  one direction   of doing  harm.    Tlis contention,  however, was   that tlici'c was nothing  preternatural     m disease,    that     iLs  phenomena or symptoms were marked  by  purpose, and that purpose      was  beneficent.       The processes  of disease  he  held,  aimed  not    at lhe������ destruction of life,  but at the saving of it,  and the  manifestations  were   the outcome  of a natural effort  towards     a  cure.   Disease,   as popularly   reali'/.cd,  was  not,   iii   his opinion,   one  of   the  good   gifts,   for its   origin   was   benevolent and  protective.   Tf it  were not  for disease in the popular  sense    Ihe  human     race would   soon   be extinct.  Sir Frederick gave  the illustration of  the processes   in  the  healing  of      a  wound,  and described  the battle    between     im acting       micro-organisms  which  sought  to poison   the body and  the germs in   the blood acting  on the  defence.    Should   the   invading   force  beat  the first line of defence and find  away   to   the channels   of   the  body,  then   a stand   as  vigorous   was   made  at the second circle of entrenchments,  the  lymphatic glands.    In   the case of  a wound of the hand  the glands under  the arm  opposed  the.  invading host.  The most largely attended potiatch  given  by the Squaim'sh   Indians     for  several  years was brought to a most  successful conclusion on Tuesday night'  last,  when     Charley Douglas     free-  handedly spread his hospitality before  three  hundred. Indians,   says   a Vancouver  despatch.    Included       among  those who attended tjie affair, which  look    place      in     Squamish    Valley,  about seven   miles  above the  mouth  of the river of the same name, were  Indians     from   Cowichan, Musquiam  and  False Creek.  ,The pollach lasted  ubout   a week  and  an  interested attendant      was   Provincial  Constable  Muni-o, who saw to it that no liquor  was consumed by  the Indians.  The best potiaching done on this  occasion was by" old Chief Billy, of  bhe Sqtiamish tribe, who gave away  several bundled dollars' .worth of  blankets to the A'isitors1, while his  wife dispensed dozens of the most  gorgeous-hiied shirtwaists among the  women of the tribesmen. Dr. Jim  furnished food for the gathering in  bountiful  supply onNseveral occasions.  Potiaching is against the law. The  government considers "that the Indians will impoverish themselves at  these festivities, but according to an  accounts Chief Billy and Dr. Jim are  not li)-oVc, althoucji there are some  doubts about the financ til standing  of Charley Douglas, who is not rated  by  Bradstrcet or Dunn.   o   WHATSARA  BERNHARDT SAID  SCOTCH LASSIES  PROOF AGAINST  LOCAL WOOING  sue.   and   said     whether or not they  were ashamed of it, they were Home entrusted to my hands.

The    Nanaimo     Free     Press says:  Mr. Cowie,  the herring expert who  has  been here since Nov. 4 instructing the local fishing companies in the  methods of curing' and preparing the  herring for the market, will leave on  Monday  for Ottawa,  where he     will  he  a week  making     a report   on his  work in Canada, and then will proceed to his home in Scotland, where  he has fishing interests and acts as  expert for some of the -largest^fishing  concerns in  that country.  Mr. Cowie has been in Canada for  about eight months together with the  Scotch lassies giving lessons and instructing the different fishing companies opfcrat'rig on both coasts, le  started in with six girls, but iiree  of them fell victims to the .unorous,  wooings of the Nova Seotiaswai r-,  aind are now married and settled-down  in the Maritime Province. ���������  ' The other treec, .Misses Campbell,  Gault and Wood, however, have been  proof agninst the charms of the entire fishing community from coast_.to  coast, and will also leave on Monday attended, by Mr. dimming, the  expert cooper, for their homes in  Lossiemough,     Murrayshire. The  Scotch lassies of Loesiemough are  very seldom known to marry outside  of their own community, and the  three young ladies,returning Monday  have upheld- the traditions of their  own  town  against  tremendous  odds.  Mr. Cowie is holding his opinions1 of  the fishing industry as carried on  here, of course, until he makes his  report to the department atOttawa,  but he stated this morning that the  Nana.inio-product is the equal of any  in Canada, and although the herring  here were smaller than-in the Old  Country, in other ways, with regard  1o quality and flavor, they would  compare very favorably.  He sees great possibilities ahead for  the development,of the Nanaimo business, and sees no reason why next  year Nanaimo companies should not  have representatives through Canada  and  the States pushing sales.  Throughout both North and South  America there is almost an. unlimited  market He is very pleased with  the' enthusiasm shown by the Nanaimo people who are following out his  instructions so implicitly, being determined to place on the market not  the greatest quantity, but the best  quality of goods.  Before leading Mr. Cowie has very,  kindly had printed lists of instructions of the Scotch methods of treat  ing herring and has presented all the  local fishermen iin the business-%\\ith a  copy.

The experts in coin production state  that     there    was   something like  a  "penny     famine," said one of      the  London and   Southwestern  Bank managers.   "For instance,   we think nothing of receiving  at one city branch of  our   bank ������.100  worth  of  pennies      in  one week,  and  the great  producer  oi  pennies is Peckham.    Many       branch  banks where business men run in and  ask   for  a sovereign's   worth   of  pennies get their  supply of coppers from  Peckham.  "The secret of this is the penny-in-  in the-slot  gas meter.    The South  Mc-  ory they will collect evidence between now and the spring Assizes1*  After the coroner's jury had rendered)  its verdict aganst the two boys Wet,-,  sistaia is alleged to. have cobfcs.se.-l  that he o fmmitlcd perjury. Upon!  this becoming known the boys were  released and AVetsistaia received a1  preliminary hearing and was commiVr  led for trial on the charge of per-*  jury.  On ihe afternoon of November I!)  Rice, Wctsistaia and .Rice's klooch!  left. Fort Rupert in a canoe for Hardy Bay. They arrived at their des1-  lillation wih the body of R������ce lyin.!j  in the bottom of th.; canoe. He wasr  dead,  though the body was warm.  3BT t  men who spend their time in empire  ing the pennies out of household motel's bank the money ' at Peckham, an $  mill.'ons of pennies are poured into  our branches' in the Peckham district!  At present we find the demand for.  big packets of pennies  brisk." .  One. of   the secretaries of +,he Soutli  Metropolitan Gas  Company jgavc   ail  account  of  the five  weeks'   imprisonment  of millions  of pennies.  "We  have  182,000 penny-in-tlic-siot  gas  meters.   A large corps  of   inspectors spend their time, in going round  emptying  these.    They      get   around  this   enormous   number   of  meters every  five  weeks.      It is quite  a usual  thing  for them   to empty out   2,500,-  OOOpennies in a few days.   These mil-'  lions   of pennies have been  locked   ui>  for   [\vc  weeks   in   many cases,   and if  we    let   the emptying  process   stand  still very long we should make a m  terial  difference to the  stream      oi  Vancouver.  tropolitan.

The piofessor says thai while  11 aiding in Greece some twenty-five  years ago he noticed that the mortar'.^j&,  jn stones and ruins which were known* , &$'  fto be o\cr 2,000 years old, was as ' .-"^  3 -rd, fresh and tenacious as if it had . ^aja  JfVen made only a year. He secured  .1 piece of the mortar and has been  .voikm*: on it ever smce until now  nvhen he soys, he has discovered t<he  F'jcrei.  The     compound is a yellow liquid,  Which the     proressor has  christened  y.orenc.      He describes-the  following  experiments:' A   piece or ordinary and  eas.ly     breakaMc. slag  after  immersion in zorene dc(ie<i the full blow    of  a hammer.    There  was  the   same    effect,   on ordinary   bricks   and   a  block  of  red jairah  wood.    All  three were  then   immersed   in   water   for  a  long  t'ime.'   When   taken  out  and  weighed  with  delicate scales  the  presence    of  a single     particle of added'moisture  could not be detected. Two pieces  of  steel submitted  to an ammonia Ic.'.l  equal to five years'  exposure to   U-'  air emerged     frc.ni  the bath as they  entered it. '  '  An ordinary     table knife which had  lain  open five months  did  not show  .   the slightest stain.  Professor Brunn  asserts thai he will be able to make  roads,     dust,  germ and waterproof,  thus  giving   a commercial   value      to  hundreds  of millions of tons of  slag  which is   now useless in the mining  and smelling districts. His discovery  will, at the very least, he says, double the life of metals exposed to the  air, such as in bridges, railroads', vessels and tanks.   o   FAME'S  PATHWAY.

Mrs.  Brdokmei'c called acidly from the west  porch. As her grauildauglitcr roso  obedientlj', but with a little impatient  sigh, her companion, Austin Wills  whistled softly, then said: '  "Jessamine! What a' wax Madam  Brookmere must be in! You're always  Sunbeam and Fairy and Bright Eyes  when she's in a yood humor."  "That is to say when the Beveridga  thiug is around," Jessamine'said, witli  a shrug.   "She is in a wax���������she always  ,' is   when  you come���������and she  feels in  her boues when you are coming."  "H-m-m! I ought to be flattered, bul  I'm not the least bit." Austin answer  ed, also rising and catching Jessa  nine's hand. She looked aghast, bin  lie kept sturdily at her sale until tlie>  -'were facing Jessamine's dragon. Tiici  he snid, with his best flourish: "C  Madum Brookmere, I have urouyii  this, young person to tel) you why eh-  can't possibly come in. She is to g'  rowing with me. We will be back b,>  late1 tea-time. The afternoon is to  heavenly to be wasted 011 land."  "Jessamine, go upstairs and fete!  my embroidery.' Be sure yon don't foi  get-, my glasses," madam said, a.  though the young man had not spoken. Jcssiiinine'iiiarto to obey, but Wills  held'her back. ' Ho lifted his uat lu  the elder lady, turned and walked off.  saying over his shoulder: "Send tlio  maid up, madam. !1> bad luck to turn  back. I can't ai". mv M!,s* Jessamine  to risk spoiling our crui.se."  "Oh, what will felie do to me?" Jessamine cried as they hurried away.  ' Madam had been too paralyzed by  Wills' audacity to say a word. Austin  drew , Jessamine's hand farther over  his arm and smiled down at her, saying:' "I hope it will be 'Out of ray  house, ingrate!' "Then, you see, yon  will have to come to my house-wheth  er or no."  "Mercy, you-do take a lot on yourself!" Jessamine said, pulling away her  hand," her eyes dancing wickedly. "1  begin to .fear, Mr. Wills, that you have  taken .our little affair seriously"���������  '���������Isn't it to be taken seriously? Really you lift a weight off rny conscience,"  Wills interrupted in,her own .tone; then,  after a chuckle: '|Jcss, I must lecture  you-^poiiit out the sinful folly of your  course. Hove you might be, by taking  pains and showing yourself properly  devout and submissive, Mrs. B'everidge  ���������possibly Mrs. Bishop Beveridge��������� I-  really believe the.gentleman has it in;  him to go high ecclesiastically, he's so'  suave and silken, just the sort to worm,  himself into the minds of rich churchmen, not to mention their' check books.:  Yet you are passing him up���������passing!  , op the chance of a lifetime���������for .the;  - sake of"���������  "A. very commonplace sinner," Jessa- i  mine broke "in. '       " j  Wills gave her a look of pained sur-i  prise.    "I was going to say 'for the  sake of having your own willful way.' *  he protested.  It was early afternoon,'and the long.'  smooth river reach, flecked with sun;  and shade, mirrored perfectly,the summer, world either side. Jessamine buna  over the boat side, staring at her own  Image. Austin watched her with happy eyes, but after a little ho drew bet  upright, saying sofily: "Vanity, thy  name is Jessamine., I*can't have another case of Narcissus and his irangs  upon my conscieuce."  "Really! Have you a conscience?*  Jessamine retorted.    ,      ,  "Pirates even have consceinces���������about  ���������ome things," Austin answered, shir*  ping his oars and letting the boat drift  toward the other bank. "For example,  it goes against their consciences to let  treasure manifestly within reach go  to some other fellow. That other pirate, Beveridge, shan't have the treasure of Brookmere." ���������  ������������������fWhat is the treasure of Brookmere?"  Jessamine asked demurely. "How much  is it worth? And how arc you going  to save it from clerical' clutches?"  "Let me see. I believe the Brookmere rating i* about three millions,"  Austin'.answered reflectively, but with  a twinkle of the eye, "handy millions  at that," he went on. "all in. gilt  edged securities. If you were morn  than a baby, .7ess, you would see a little beyond the end of your nose. ��������� Bishop-to-be Beveridge did want' you���������in  fact, he still wants you, being a man  of taste, for alibis sins."  "Thanks!" Jessamine interrupted.  Wills shook his head at her.  "He wanted you rather badly, but  not so badly as he wanted the Brookmere money.   And -that  he  means t.a  mltted, then do yotrr best to tafc* him  away from her. You can do it, nev������  ���������fear. He's human, if toe is a preacher,  and no mere man yet born of woman  is able to stand against you"���������  "Thank you again," Jessamine said,  tossing her head. "Oh, I want that  clump of cardinal flower," leaning as  she spoke toward the shelving shore.  Wills shook his head.   "Snakes!" he  said   laconically,   speaking very loud;  tg then, in a low aside: "Here's where we  quarrel, Jess.   Insist upoa getting out.  The bishop to be is coming dowi������ the  path."  "Oh', Mr. Beveridge," Jessamine call-  , wl eagerly, "do come and pick some  Bowers for me.   I want to pick them  myself,  but I find I am a prisoner," -  with a withering glance at "Wills. '  Beveridge ran down to the water's ���������  edge.   "Won't you let me rescue you?"  he cried, holding out his hand. "Jump!'  I promise you shall get nothing worse;  than a pair of wet feet by it."  i    "She needn't have even them," Wills '  said boorishly. , "If you'll agree to sea  her to the house I'll be glad enough to  put her ashore.  Not in the humor for  walking myself and still less for botanizing."  Half an hour later Mrs. Emoknierv  was surprised and, if truth must l"������c  spoken, not wholly pleased to see Jessamine sauntering home, her hands full  of scarlet bloom, with the Uev. Bewly  Beveridge at her elbow.   Now the minister had been madam's own compr.n-  i ion all through the earlier afternoon,  and, though he had not said much���������  quite too little to make madam aware  of her own state of mind���������he had looked unutterably thiugs.   She bad found  the looking pleasant���������she was of thu  women made to be married, childless,  although  she had  buried three husbands, and still possessed of an alert  and lively vanity.   She liked to see her  name at the head of lists .of patroa*  esses.1 especially missioaaryaud rescu*  bands.   Further, flattery wus meat hel  soul loved,to feed on".   The Rev. Bewlj  had found that out at about the second  minute and acted upon the,Knowledge  Indeed, his mind was pretty ^ell ;uad������  up to lr^ry her before the interview  ended,   i.. at .then ho had not seen Jes-'  samirie in this mood.   Jessamine upset  his calculations;''she fairly0swept him  off his feet.     ' '-*    Z  Madam was sadly puzzlei through-  eut the next week. Wills haunted the  house as much as ever, though Jessa-  raine openly flouted him, at the same  time smiling shy propitiation at tb������  bishop to be. He also was in a maze.  Jessamine's encouragement was too  , elusive to warrant giving over his pursuit of madam, yet sufficiently unset-  Sling to make him at times distrait.  Wills glared at him and ostentatiously  ignored him, It was that which gave  him the strongest hope. Wills must  be jealous���������madly jealous. , If only  Beveridge had never begun to court  that old woman! She was in the beginning eager to play fairy godmothef  It was sickening to feel that he had ���������  disturbed this pious purpose, making  the lady feel that sne was not too old  to inspire grand passion number four.  Presently he began to see light.   He  would have it out with Jessamine���������aslc  her plumply to be Mrs. Beveridge, and,  if she said "yes," go to madam for her  blessing, along with an apocryphal talo  of a distant wooer f".dy to sue for her  hand.    He could make it 'appear he  had been finding out her mind toward  a fourth marriage.    lit would go hard  with   him,   but   that   somewhere   he  would find a man to make good.   Indeed, providentially he already 5rnew  the man���������a college president, poor and  jnious, entitled to write half the alphabet after his Dame in honorary distinctions,, with children all safely married,  and much in want of a good home.   So  he went straight to Jessamine, begging  her to sing to him.    The music room  was at' the very end of the house, thus  well apart.   There was small chance  of interruption.   All the rest were busy  with games or flirting or walking in  the flower garden under a white moon.  Jessamine went  with him, walking  high headed and joyous.    At the door  ������f the parlois she waved him forward,  running  back  herself  upon some  errand he did not  understand.    "Whatever it was, she  did it  very quickly.  | Ec-  had   hardly   found  the  songs   he  wanted when she was beside him, smiling at  him in   the  most   bewilderisg  fashion.   As she reached for the music  her hand,  apparently by   chance,   fell  lightly upon his.    He tried to hold it,  , but she snatched it away, turned from  him and began to sing very softly.   He  i watched   her  with   burning  eyes,   Lis  breath coming hard and fast.   As she  made to  rise he put his  arms  about  her and gathered her to his breast, saying hoarsely: "Jessamine, darling,won't  you make music for m������ always?   ,YJn-  less you do my life will be wasted."  "You���������you are not in earnest!" Jessamine said, slipping from his arms and  Averting her face.    "You, who are so  , great,,so wise, so good, need another  ��������� sort-" of wife-somebody who can helpi  J you.   I���������I should be only a burden."     |  "A. blessed. burden,, one  I shall rejoice to carry," Beveridge said, trying  ' to take her hand.   She drew away from  him, saying as though in despair: "You  ^you arc playing with me.   You really  want grandmother"���������  -t"Grandmother!      Oh, ��������� you   jealous  .darling!    How  dare you  name  any-  thing so preposterous?" Beveridge said,  icatching(;both   her   hands.     "Grandmother, js, the most estimable,of oh?  ladies, hilt even if I knew she would  take me I could not think of marrying  her���������not   for  all   the   money  in   the  world."  "H-m-ml You've been trying to do  It for a very moderate part of tht  money," grandmother said, steppiut  through the French window upon An=s  tin Wills' arm. After one look at hw  the Rev.
