He states  that he was just coming off shift,  and carrying a four-foot drill. The  latter, in carrying, he swung around  and struck the wire which conveys  the electricity for running the motor. The force of the shock threw  the boy in front of the approaching  motor, and 'before he could clear  himself, be was caught lieneath the  wheels.  "I ������aw that    my  leg  was   across  the wheels struck my h&nd, tow, and  took off my fingers."  The left leg was badly crushed .below the knee, where the iron wheel*  ground into it, and\onpuoi the fingers on the left hand completely se-  \ered.

Peterson was then fifteen  years of age, and his friend was  ten, but the former was large and  robust for one of his years, and he  succeeded in clinging to part of, tlie  rigging attached toia miast. He also  succeeded in rescuing his boy companion from drowning and used a  i ope to attach them both to the  mast.  After floating in tlie ^as Tor three  days and nights they' were driven  ashore. Peterson cared for his  charge as well as he.icouldiand, leaving him in a sheltered spot, he  sought for aid. Tramping 20 miles  inland, he reached a settler's cottage, secuied food and returned to  Bjorklund. They finally arrived in  a small village where Peterson paid  for the caie'of.hie fiiend.  In time they .became separated, Peterson coining Wo >t and engaigin*| in  mining in California and later in Alaska. Fortune withheld her smiles  for him, but. Bjorklund amassed a  fortune in the East.

Surgery has much to gain from  spinal cocainization, says Robert  Jones, a Liverpool surgeon, in Tho  Medical Press, lie advrcalcs the  process In cases where patients can  not or will not take other anacs-'  thetics. The resulting Insensibilicy to  the patient olten develops abnormal  lo<[iiacity.  Mr. .Jones tells of aii operation in  which he cocainized' the spine. It was  that of a Mg man, who as soon as  he had taken two or three iwhiffs oi  chloroform jumped off the operating  table,and scampered away. This hap  pened twice and Mr. J^ics, tried cocainization, injecting cocaine into  'the cerebro-spinal' fluid. By this  ���������.means a trou'blesomo operation of  cutting out bones in tbe leg was  'safely carried out. The man,( an old  poacher, meantime rogaled the doctors with stories ���������< of his iir.t, only  once interrupting, when the surgeon  was chiseling a bone, io ask, "What  is that knocking?"���������London Mail.

The Maple Leaf Senior Lacrosse  .club have entered a protest aj-ainst  the Vancouver Lacrosse Club, charging professionalism' In Saturday's  game. Accusation is based on play  ing of Cao., whom they say was not  a member of ,21 Jays' standing.  .That Ritchie of the Maple Leafs was  kept mft the field for some time after,  the time of penalization expired, and  that Tuck is a professional. If the  charges are proved they will have a  grave effect on senior lacrosse circles throughout the province.   o ���������  COINCIDED.

THE GENTLER SEX.  ��������� Much - is -heard nowadays oi physical culture and gymnasium work for  women, and we see on all' sides wo-  ijien'with well-developed muscles and  strong bctfies,' Yet how few of ttfiesa  same athletic women are really grace  ful; " iii any social gathjering it is  seldom the, graduate of some gym-  nasium or school of physical culture that is noted for her grace of  movement and manner. The French  women are noted for their ease -and  go:ace, yet the average Parisieo.no  kn0ws little or nothing j^out physical culture and breathes and exercises only just enough to keep herself alive; *ut she has cultivated a  quick perception and a. keen decision, at. least in the superficial things  of,life, -which shows themselves in  a\\ she-does. -W������ cam;safely say(thau  awkwardness in company is really,  caused by mental indecision.  Watch a  French  woman come  into  the room.      She has taught   herself  to  take the    entire  room hi   at    a.  glance,  the company, lhe po(Jitioii of  the chairs.     She  knows just    whom,  she  will  greet  first,  just where; sha  will  walk,  just where she will   sit.  There ia no hesitation and no    hurry in  her movements^���������there is a perfect poise, perfect self-command.  ��������� Watch our undeculed    or our   self-  conscious    friend!    She fiddles    with  the -door ,knol> because she is too dif->  fident t0 enter all at once.  Her feet  seem    unwilling 't|o  respond  to    her  will, or rather her will is too weals  to; give    tliiom    a decided command.  She -reaches but her hand,  hesitates,;  draws it back,: tlius making an ugly,  ahkle-,in her fluctuating-motion.^.  Real grace must come from witii-.  in, and is the natural outcome of a  harmonious mind. ���������Baltimore Eveiw  ing Herald.
