Dogs  as is well known, can be taught to  do almost everything but talk, and  in my early days I was connected  with a circus which possessed tbe unique attraction of a terrier which,  among other tricks, had been instruct  ed in the art r.l smoking a clay pipe.

Alfred  Lyttleton, colonial' secretary in  Mr. Balfour's cabinet, speaking, at  Leaming'toa.     tonight said the Union-  t  isls would. plate their fiscal policy  before the country. This is taken  to  mean   that some  modification  of what is known as the Chamberlain policy is intended.

For the Indian women,  had stained her body with a paint of  deep' brown, so that the child would  not easily be recognized and identified- as.not belonging to the, Indians  themselves.  This  is one of the queerest features  of the infant's tragic history.  It was  gave  testimony at the final' hearing that  several of the old Indians obtained  herbs in the forest, and from these  a stain was made which was used!  to color the child's body. For five  days the old kioocbmen of the tribe  boiled and strained and boiled again  the preparation and when it was almost as thick a s paste it was applied to thc dainty skin of the child.  It must have been that in the stain  used ijy the Indian women was contained some ve.i^etabie poison, and  that tbis was absorbed through tho  child's skin. For weeks she suffered  fearful agonies as the poison attacked her internal organs Her last  hours were marked by terrible evidences of the fearful havoc of tbe  poison in her frail little body. ,,..,'  HERRING ARE NOW  PLENTIFUL IN NANAIMO  During- the past few days the herring have been, coming into Na-  tiaimo harbor in quantities and  rich, hauls every time they cast  tho fishing companies arc making  rich hauls every time they cgst  their nets. .This, is a most '"wel-  come' condition, of affairs to the local companies whose catch for the  season will be seriously curtailed  owing to the fish coming in so  lute. It is the early fish that are  best for anyptirpose, they arc fat  and   firm   and  in  the  very   prime    of  hauh������ at present and a good story,  is told of a fisherman who brought,  in a couple of tons in an open  boat   a  fov.  evenings ago.

To   one great  task   she  is said     to  have  vowed her life,   to the rehabili-  Uition   of thc  name   or Krupp,   soiled  hideously     by     thc evil    reputation  home,   truly  or untruly,  by  Krupp II  She has  resolved to obliterate at   all  costs,   by nil means,  the memory    of  the  dishonored   name   a syiv inym  for  all     th.it  is noblest,   most generous,  most  loved.

She is queen,   socially  and economically of a town of  some quarter  of a mill ion   of  people,  a town created out of a yj-ii t  \illagc  by   her grandfather  and  father,   still  entirely    dependent     upon thc mammoth   works  which she controls,    and  which she could) if she chose, shut up  lomorrow,    remaining colossaly rich  herself by mere accumulated capital.  Her  whim or will may any day have  international  importance.   She holds,  in    her slight hands   the means       of  making  or marring  the  destinies   of  nations,  If a little state sues for bat  ties-hips  or great "guns on  unlimited  credit,  she has but to say  "yes," and  the little State becomes formidable in  war,  a new element in the balance, of  power.   ,11 a sr-'-t.

She  is and  will remain, owner and managing director,  with   plenary  powers   over  tlie greatest emporium of wan-   materials in tho  the world.

Hut from her earliest child!  hood,    if    the local  talk  he bdievoili  she showed,an alKorijiiifr,  passion     for  the things that have to do with wnr.  Thc  construction   of   mighty  steel-  eased  fighting ships, the secrets      of  quick-driiih;   guns,   11^. composition of  shrapnel  ami case-shot;   on   these   her  childish     imagination seized instinc-  ively;   these  ma'de the romance of her  nursiiry days, and  became ihe subject  of her caieful  and minute study       as  her  mind  matured.    Among her earliest   toys   were   tiny,   but absolutely  perfect, wcr' ino- models of every ship  and gun constructed at thc factory.  As  quite a little girl,hand  in  hand  wilh      her feather,  she would   wander'  about  the worl-.s,  watching, tgucstion-  ing  and demanding explanation  after  explanation,  until she thought      she  had grasped     the meaning,   of every  part of a machine, of every new curve  in the fiame of a gun.  It. was for a irng time a source    of  erief  to Krupp  If.  that  he had       no  son  to inherit his    immense fortune,  and  to   watch     over  thc continuous  growth of thc world-renowned  industry.       But by the time his daughter  been so steady as she will be!"  was fifteen he declared himself better  p:eased  as th'ngs were.   "My daughter has ������the brain of a man, and    my  son,     if ��������� 1 had one,  might not have  Fraulein  Bertha  is certainly      very  steady.   Every  ordinary  day sees her  down at the factory "good and early."   Often she will shroud her own  simple black dress in the thick yellow'  overall  of a farm  girl and pass      a  whole  hot  morning  in one  workshop  or another,  following every stage   of  the work there.   In   thc fierce heat of  great   furnaces,   in   the blinding glare  of     glowing metal  in  the perpetual  pryotechnics  of noxious colored gases .the slight     figure and  the earnest  attentive face take on the appcaranco  of     sonic seveie Loic Fuller moving  about  in a fantastic  world  of flames.  Silent,   absorbed,   yet perfectly  mistress of her self, careful at fevery mo-t  ment to allow the workers free play  ui   their  delicate   operations,        she  watches,  studies,  sometimes,       perhaps, dreams as another would      of  music  or  before some wonderful  vision of natural ���������lovliness.   She has bfcen  heard to murmur to herself, "Schoen,  schocji!" (Beautiful, beautiful!')     for  very joy in the splendor and power of  the scene before her.  Every morning has practical        results.   A few days afterwards,       the  foreman of  the section  visited, will be  called, to her private room at the. fac-.  lory, to discover that tlie little mistress      has  elaborated   some minute  plan aiming at some improvement in  thc     existing system, .either for the  better expedition of the  work or for  the safety of  the workers.  Th s  last  is  a constant   preoccupation  to  the tender-hearted   girl.    Not  long     since  she- proved   ife  in fashion  that set all   thc town   talking.     One  of thc most peculiar features of   the  Works   is the vast  tunnel  .mainly  underground, in  which  every firing-piece  musket or great gun,(f.th-at leaves the  Krapp factory is tested in actual use  Periodically   the  whole  town of Es-  .sen,   which-is build  over  amaze      of  exhausted coal galleries, rocks      and  reverberates as the giant cannons are  fired.  _   The crash within thc tunnel  is     appalling,     and  men   ha've   been  known > to . cower fri terror where they"  stand   for the awful  roaring of      the  guns  in the depths.    FraAilin Bertha,  during her father's life  time,       was  sternly  forbidden   to enter the fun-)'  nel.   Recently     despite-     all the i-io-  quent   protestations  of  the forenun,  who  even  sought  to   obtain  a futile  prohibition     from     Frauleii^sjK^tipp,  Fraulin  Bertha made up lierlirind   it  was her duty  to   attend  a trial. For  two hours she was down amid     the  hideous  noises  and   very   real  danger  ���������nervously -pressing  against the fall,  tbey say, and unable to  repress      a  little  "Oh,  oh!" as1 the great    guns  opened,  but holding good to the end.  She went  home immediately after  the trial and did  not come to       the  factory the next -day.    But in a short  time she communicated  to  the Chief  carefrriy conceived body of new regulations, indicating minute changes in  ���������Inspector of  the gun  department      a  the mathematically >>rdcrod positions'  of the     .mttii  engaged  in the perilous  work, and a more scientifically calculated   pointing  of the  barrel,  a safer  angle.    Before  next   trial   her     plan  was, with     slight modifications, put  into effect, aml'ittis thought that the  danger of the tunnel work stands   at  its least possible^  last  on  pre-  c on-  most   of  whom     were   novices,   ,   as  well,   and   the   efforts      ot"   thu,     lads  drew   forth   loud      applause   at times  when  a  bit  of  o.uick     work  appeared.     The  boxiuj,     contest      between  Govrland  and   Suimbart   only    lasted  fivv   rounds   by   which     time       Oow-  lancl   was  in   a   state  of, total      collapse,   for  want   of   wind.     Jle    sim-  <������Jy  couldn't  get  up     Snv tbe    sixth  round   when   the   gong-  sounded    and  he was counted     out.     While 'it was  going,   however,    it   was   one  continual   round   of  plea'suic���������i"or the   spectators.       Cow laud   is  a  new       man  in   the  ring and   was evidently trained  loo  line.

Stub'bart,  on   the  -.-oiitrary   is  about     at.      bis  best   at   I hat     weight     aixl   has       a  givat   denl   of   ring   experience     that  showed   up   to great   ndv'finta������.i  night.  (lowland   stood   straight     up  his   pins  anil   apparently     was  pared   for  a  stand-up     boxing-  lost".      Stuhbai't,   however   was  as ac  tive  as  a  cat.      1-tound   and     round  the   ring  he     danced      while       Gou-  iand   stood   in   tho   centre   and       rotated  as   if  on   a   pivot  facing      his  opponent      and      waiting     for Stub  bart's     inrush   which     as   a   general  rule  caine  about  every  five  seconds.  Occasionally     Stubbart    would stay  with  his  man   and   then   there would  l.fc  a   perfect   whirlwind of infighting  in.   which   honors  were  about      even,  the   usual     ending "being    a      clinch  and  a   lot  more  fighting       in       the  clinch   until     the  referee    on  several  occasions had     to     make  a  forcible  breakaway.     Thus  the   pace        was  kept up   from start to finish.     Stub-  bart     making   the  pace  and     Gow-  land meeting his  rushes  without g-iv  ing  an   inch     until   his   wind    began  to   fail and  even    then he, kept    up  to   the   work,   and  even   in  the    last  round  when  Stubbart      was  boring  n  at  a   lulling     pace   and   Gowland  was   grasping    for    bfreath   lie    stood  up .to  his. work  and  took   the   punishment  without  any     attempt      at  running  away.      At   the  end   of   the  fifth  round  it  could    easily   be  seen  he   was   iu great  distress   while Stub  bart   was  still     <;ftii<.e   vigorous       in  spite  of  the   many   hard  blows      he  had  to  stand   while  getting     in    at  his  opponent.   When  the gong sound  ed  /or  the  sixth     round       Gowland  was  in   a  complete  faint  from which  he   did  not  come  to   for  several min  utes.     The  referee counted  him  out.  Gowlnnd's  seconds   were   C. Williams  nd   W.   McCnwee,   StuWbart's      were  Geo<">-_   Enimerick     and   .J.   Vipond.  Nol^v  Clark,   of   Victoria,    refeiwd.  The   wrestling  bouts   were   as     follows:  Williamson vs Challinor, won liy  Williamson in 11 minutes. Williamson was much lighter than his opponent and, secured the fall by taking Challinor"s elbow in a very  ojuick throw that landed him on  his shoulders tfofurc he could bridge.  Harrison vs. Ashman. This bout  gave promise ol" being most stubbornly contested as both men were  strong' and evenly matched. It ended abruptly however, when tbey had  been .g;ou,g ahout ten minutes by  Ashman breaking one of his fingers.  Both men wore standing when the  accident, occurred and in a breakaway from clinched fingers,  man's finger gave a snap  could be heard all over the  Tho decision was given to  son.  Harrison,   vs.   Williamson. Here  again there was too; 'great disparity of 'weight to make the contest  interesting. Williamson was less  than U00 pounds while Harrison  must have been 125. Tbe little  fellow' showed great cleverness Mi  getting' out   of     dam^'i-cius holds  secured by Harrison but finally  succumbed in 9 minutes. The second, bbut btetween these two was  the same kind of a go. Harrison  Kept trying f0r a ham-tneriock and  although the little fellow s.ipped  several times he finally had to  give in. Harrison is now up against a contest with Sandy Swan-  son for the championship and possession   of  the  Hurst   Cup.

The crime for which Bennett paid  the life penally was a most brutal  one. On July 9 last, with her  head badly bruised and marks of  murderer's fingers on her throat, Betsy Jacob, an Indian about forty  years old, living alone on the Oswego Reserve in Brant county was  found dead. She was crippled and  unmarried. Bennett    was at  once  suspect ed, a letter which he received the night before was found  beside the dead woman's body. Ben  nett skipped out, but after a chase  lasting several days was captured in  the bush about fifty miles from thc  scene of the murder. There was no  valuables in the house and Bennett's motive for the crime still  reniatins   unsolved.   O   NAN* A niO  Mr. L.
