the hundreds' of hunters who stream
across the straits or into the   lower
northern    countries    are   back from
camp.    Thanksgiving  day  ended  the
season, and. the deer are, left in peace
for another year; save :for the wolves
or   the few   law-breakers, who pursue
them at all seasons.   Men. who never
hunted deer are at a loss to:; account

Sitting on a stump on a. runway���'
a defined path used by deer in f their
travels���is the usual way the novice
"hunts'" deer. Sometimes he gets
them; more often he docs not. . It is
pretty much a matter of luck, immunity to the "buck'fever" and shooting straight. One has to sit still on
a runway, be careful not to make a
sound or a sudden movement. A deer
may be within a few rods, at any
moment, i Usually the hunter gets
on the runway before dawn, or if in
the late afternoon, lie stays there
until he can no longer see the ivory
front sight of his Winchester. Deei"

Watching a runway is not exciting
sport, and it'has its discomforts. A
nervous, flabby tenderfoot from a city office, finds it irksome to sit still
so long with his attention, on strain.
Besides, he generally gets cold, and
it is harder to sit patiently like a
gargoyle'on a stump with the shivers"
running up and down your back, and
your toes like ice, than, it is before
a fire at home. But it is not. all
'monotony, nor is it unattractive, to
one who loves the woods and the
curious 'wild little people who make
- their homes  therein.
The woods are filled with a tremendous overtone of silence when
you. listen for it, and aphtn' when ycvi/
listen they are loud with strange
voices. On the runway at dawn
there is not <*. sound. Morning s
steals uj) before you are a ware, and
the curious shadows and the-dark
���places shift,, melt and fade... Perhaps a little wind comes with it
.and soon*     faintly    rustles the dry;
leaves on a maple and gives you iai

A     Seattle despatch of yesterday
says:    John King,  regarded  by     the

Columbia    as      the  most  dangerous
criminal with whom they have    ever
been  called upon  to deal,  was  taken
to   the penitentiary     to serve   a  life
sentence under   the. cumulative     sentence law by Warden   Keys and two
guards  yesterday.    The  utmost    precautions have   been  taken  to  prevent
King's  associates, In  crime,   who are

King  is     the  first criminal  to  be
compelled to 'serve a life se-ntence under  the law .that imposes that penalty upon a person convicted three tiinir
es  of crimes amounting  to a relony.
King  was arrested  in Taccima     in

and  Ellison of Taconva, and Hubfcard
and  Frfceiman .of- tne Seattle force, as
he was  entering  his   room   in  a logd-
i-ng  house.    He was   wanted   for   the
burglary of a jewelry store in  January.    At noon,   when the street was
crowded,     hc entered the store      hy

dozen gold  watches and  several  dozen     rings      from   the show   window.

Ling  was  then  put  on trial  under
the   cumulative   sentence  law        for
having  been   twice ,before  convicted
of  felonies.   Tbe jury found   that hc
had served a two-year sentence under
the  name of Green, for  b-utglary committed  at   Heili-upjiani.    The jury  also found that, he had previous to that
time   served  a ten-year , sentence    for
stealing a jar  of money that was on
exhibition  in a First- avenue clothing
store   in  Seattle.    Upon   this   finding
of the  jury,  he was  sentenced   to  life
imprisonment for the Pike street burglary.      ���      ;
King was arrested by Detective
Jackson ami his partner of the Van-
comer, B.C., police, in that city on
last Chris*mas Eve. With a partner
King had looted thc tills in a number of '.saloons'. Jackson's partner
took him from a saloon to the sidewalk and placed him against the
wall. Detective Jackson, stood in

other detective went into the saloon
to seai;c*h for another member of

sleeve of his coat to his hand, and
fired   directly   at   Jackson's  head.

The egg,   resembling  nothing       so
much as a rugby rootball. is 1-1 inches  long and JO  in diameter,  and     is
that of the creature .known to scientists as the  Arpyon's  Maximus,   described as  a species of gig-antic fossil

London, Dec. 21.���Sir Henry Catinp-
bell-Bannernian's first speech since he
accepted the premiership was delivered at Albert hall tonight before a
mass meeting. N
The premier was supported on the
platform by. fifteen members of' his
cabinet. Next to the premier, John
Burns, was the hero of the evening,
being acclaimed by continuous applause and musical honors until thc
picturesque representative of- labor in
the British cabinet was -palpably embarrassed,       ���
The  premier   favored  the  question
of  home rule for   'Ireland.  He said
that     the      fiscal question  was   the
pri'me issue  of  the campaign against
a government  "whose  ministers made
a mhlnight   flitting-.'on- a murky   December evening."   A  factor  of       Sir
Henry's      speech   was   the  announcement that  the government had decided  to stop  the inportatf-on  of coolies
into South Africa until such time .il-
the question for  or against such   importation could be decided     by     the
South African parliament, elected  by
popular vote.    This  was  greeted   by
tremendous  applause.    Speaking       of
foreign  relations,   Sir Henry  first expressed his  kindly Reeling toward Ru*
sia in the present,trial throu(-h'which-,
that     country  was  passing.   In   the
case of Germany,'he said,   hc      saw
i.o .reason   whatever for   estranglnent
and ' welcomed .   the unofficial demonstrations-  of friendship   which   recently  had passed between the two coun-
Iries.    Regarding  the United States.
France  and   Japan,   the  premier    accepted the. existing conditions      and
approved  everything which  tended towards peace.
Sir     Henry  upheld   the   announcement that  growth  of  armaments   is
dangerous  with  another which  elicited   applause.     .He  said  that       the
growth  of  armaments  was1 a   great
danger,  that  force  was  not,  the only
remedy,  and   that  economy   must be
adopted.   The government would oppose aggression  and  would be animated ;by ft desire to remain on the best
of terms with all nationalities and to
co-operate  in  the common   work       of
civilization.    He rejoiced   that '     the
principal'     of arbitration '��   had made
