Yestlei day Mclntyre,   when  ordered off the premises by Eastlake,  picked  up     a beany  sledge hammer  and was    about, .to .strike Eastlake,  but was too slow owing to weight  of the hammer.

The Bishop of Gloucester, who has  lately resigned, once nearly had his  career cut short by a railway accident.

UNCLE SAM'S INVITATION.  Washinglbn, D.C., March 29.���������President Roosevelt tonight issued a proclamation inviting the nations of the  earth lo he represented by their military organizations and naval vessels at the celebration  to be held in  si tion that unless the whole petition  was gianted it would decline to proceed   with   legislation.     For       three  months the sitting of  the Diet    has  been purely formal.    The term of the  Diet expires in the middle of April.  The Imperial decision  is regarded by  the" conslitutic-nalists as being, a temporary makeshift to relieve the present tension.    The suspension of the  conscription act will undoubtedly remove the possibility of a serious - disturbance next month when the levies  were to be made.   Although only 190  men were  to be  taken  for the Finnish battalion, the law required that  290 youths submit themselves at the  levy of conscripts, from- which    190  wouid     be chosen by   lot,   the Russians  thereby compelling general recognition of the right of conscription.

The     French     ambassy also-insists  that it has no knowledge that any  move, if any, has been made.  BLOCKADE-RUNNERS'   FATE.

The      British  steamer Mars,  which  was  stranded  off  Rural  Promo lory  on March  17,  while attempting    the  passage oi  the Soya Straits,     has  broken  in     two   under  her  engines.

Hart was as badly punished'a  man as has been seen in the ring for  a longi   time, but -he was game to the  core  and kept boring into  the     big  colored     man all   through  the fight.  Johnson's     much-vaunted cleverness  did not     count for much.   While he  ���������was able to hit Hart frequently, his  blows  did  not seem-to damage    the  white man from Kentucky. The sympathy      of  the large crowd  present-  was openly with Hart, who was   the-  short ender in the betting, and every  lead  he  ma.de at  Johnson,   whether  he landed  or not,   was greeted with  yells of joy.    Hart  did   manage     to  deal the only effective blow in     the  eleventh round,  when he  landed     a  right swing on Johnson's jaw    that  staggered the black man and nearly  knocked him over.  Referee Greggains stated that he  gave the decision to Hart because all  through the fight Hart did all the  forcing and    leading. According     to  champion  would  probably beat  both rn the same night.  T.ie  hem  FOOTBALL.

P-, has con  liibuted une following to the London  Daily Mail regarding the iinj)ies-  moiis gamed of the late M.u_ Ceoil  Rhodes woik in South Africa'  Mv  lust     stopping plate in  bouin  Africa ������as at     Groot     Schuui, the  Jun.se. which Cecil Rhodes lot to t-W  Confederation    foi   which he ure.une 1  and worked and li\ed.  Thc noble white mansion was  flanked by a little vail"/ ol hydrangeas, a \asl Plaque of color- one or  those (me tane.es of the dead cl.iei-  tau which remains a credit fo that  bold imagination winch was uiivtl-  ltn.v lo .10 little things, which yet  &uc little things a deep significance  There was something ������* Lhe e-xc-m-  sile, monotonous, hollowed palm of  blue which suggested the chaiactci  of the mind that called it into being. Thc mind tnouglit m one color  its pictures had the glow and gr������uo  beauty of an Egyptian sunset.  Tho mind  that     brooded af Cioot  Schuur     saw     a sub-continent    "all  ml"    It wor, ed     thiough the dominant tone to the     dominant    ffact, a  South  Africa all British.  Trme and i.gam when I was m  South Ainca I lei ailed a talk I once  bad with the pi--sent Chief Secret ai>  lor Ireland just betoie I left on this  joiuney, winch represented 22,0-1(1  miles of tia\cl.   He said'  "Lccil Rhodes had a few lai'^e  thoughts as a child, as a boy, and  tlies.- were the dominating influences  01 his life A man only docs th^se  big thinqs which he thought as a  child The thoughts have wide ramifications, complex workings, divcis.-  Ikd dcielopmcnts, but the coic ol  Ihem a,U was ho in with intelligence  They were bone of his bone, llesli ol  bis Jlcsh, and that was Cecil Rhodes  In South Afuca I lelt this. I un-  deistood at Gioot Schuur, I uiulci-  slood it a*. 1 stood beside the iu-i  i\lieie Lobengula sat and gave slaus  prisoners, and misdemeanants to th.  swoid oi to the bludgeon, to be entombed ali\e oi buned with then  heads out of the giound, to be eaten  Jy flie.-j and rodents. At the foot ol  that tiee now, once dedicated to m  rlaha and rjxcculion, thcie is a wuk  circle of English \iolcts���������civilisation  snnlirig where barbarism had sway a  do/cn \cais ago- Tlie a.\e was, lr.-  deed, laid at the tool ol lhe tree.  Standing tneie one looked back o-..-  t-i the three miles ol avenue fiom Unc'  gracious gardens of Go\ernmera  Ifouse to the City of Buluwa\o,  wheie English hie flowcis, uom  which the influence of English ch.u-  iitier .Widens, and where the native  has not yet learned, as he-learned in  Cape Colony and elsewhsre, that,  though he is no longer master of the  .wide dominions of.'untitled .waste,'he  is the master of domestic life and agricultural and industrial development���������where a native still treats a  white man with 'respsct. The English violets a,t the foot of Lobengu-  la's tree haunted me throughout Africa, they color the. mind still, ten  thousand miles away. Where savage  blood was spilled by a savage ruler  ��������� our English violets spring.  And in such things as these do we.  find     the     key   to  the mind  of Cecil  Rhodes,  poet and  dreamer,  as .great-  men  of action, great makers of   empire,   always  arc.    Groot  Schuur   itself he would build down in the valley  on  its   old  foundations,   though a  splendid  situation  lay above,  healthier,      no    doubt,   and   finer   for   the  house's sake.   But he  "wanted .   to  ���������see   the   mountain   through   the      old  oaks,"     and so  the house  was less  than   the  thoughts   that   came   to  him  through   the  trees nnd   the mountains  lowering yonder.  As  I sal on lhat stocp where       he  sat- so many times and looked at   the  mysterious   heights   beyond,    I could  not   in-Ip  but   think  of  that day when  faun-sun   had  he saw   that  iiv   ruined.

It is supposed that our pilgrim fathers, roaming through  the woods  ln search of  game   for   their   first   Thanksgiving  spread, heard, the oocoocoo calling in  the familiar tones of our domesticated  fowl,  "Turk,  turk, turk."   These first  Yankee    huntsmen,    mistaking    this  frightened cry of the bird for its real  song, immediately labeled It "turkey,'?  and turkey It is to this  day.   Much  more beautiful and musical was the  Indian name oocoocoo, the notes peculiar to the flock when sunning thein-  celvea in perfect content on the river  beaches.  He Told th* Troth.

These mountains arc very high  and     covered    with     ice and  snow  Sometimes  this ice and snow breaks  away and comes    crashing down the  mountain sides into the villages, de  jstroying'houses and     carrying away  trees and     rocks.   This   is called an  [avalanche.    When summer conies and  'the snow on the 'mountains begins lo  melt the men form a procession and  begin .to  climb  the mountains.    All  summer    they  stay  there collecting  their     cattle to  be -milked  two or  thrcc times a .'day. The girls stay at  home with their mothers and help at  tlie work,   while  their fathers     and  brothers are on  the mountain *-idcs  Tliey-    mow  the-grass,   plait straw  hats  anil  milk 'the* cows   and   goats  that arc left at home.    As  Autumn  conies  and   the dark clouds hanging  overhead   warn  the, men   that  winter  is coming,   they^gafher  theii   cattle  together      and start for  thc village. '  This is a great day.  Bells are  rung,  Hags  fly and   the people of the     vil  lage/go out to meet their returning  relatives.  The people of Switzerland build  their houses of wood and place  large rocks on the roof so lhat Unwind cannot blow the roof oft. In  spite of the mountainous charactei  of their country these people love  home and have, always fought , foi-  freedom.
