An ollicial said: \*It  is universally known lhat the Japanese  intelligence department is exceptionally effecient.   Therefore if various   specific   hpeiachcs   of  neutrality  really  existed   the  Japanese  government    .would have been aware,     of  llicm and  would have presented specified charges to  thc French government.   So far, however,'Japan's official action has been confined  to   requesting    France  to exercise  strict  neutrality.    She has not made    any  specific charges to any specific acts  of  violation   of neutrality  yet  been  brought to our attention.   The Japanese government asked  in amicable  spirit   that   we   observe   neutrality,  and  we rans\vcred  that we had done  and are doing everything possible to  that end.   The reports to the ,.  contrary  we  believe  to  be misrepresentations."

Several   years   ago   a   tenor   named!  Tamagno   was   engaged   to   come   to,'  America and sing at the Metropolitan,'  Opera House, New York.   He was paid,'  $1,000 a night.    This is a sum which'  would  make many people willing to  put up with small extra expenses.   But  not so Tamagno.    Before leaving Eu- J  rope he made u stipulation that he be  furnished with a carriage to ��������� and from  the opera house every night.   This was  inserted In the contract.  When he arrived he found a carriage  waiting at the pier. He rode uptown���������  always at the expense of the opera  company���������and took a look around.  Then he decided to put up at the Marlborough hotel, which happens to be  only three short blocks from the Metropolitan Opera House. Every time he  sang he walked up to the opera house,  refusing to take a carriage. He said  he had just as soon walk. When it  came time for him to return to Europe  he presented a bill for over $200 "for  carriages to and from the opera."  "But you didn't take a carriage," said  the manager of the opera company,  Tamagno bowed low and invited tho  manager to look at the contract. He  repeated thc same suggestion whenever  anything was said about it. The result, of course, was that tho $200 had  to be paid. He stood out for it with  as much insistence as if he hadn't  seen a dollar for a month, and all the  time he was getting $1,000 a night.  ������**������#������****������������&������&���������*������������*��������� -- ������ &������$-������e������*4*6*������������*������**-������������6������**������-*4������  Union  is Co  NANAIMO,   B.

Thia  Pecallar Creature  Can  lVelthe*  See, Hear Nor Smell.  Unlike man, the starfish which loses  one of its "arms," or properly its rays,  grows a new one to take its place. Under certain conditions it grows two to  take the place of one. A starfish may  lose all its rays without losing its life,  and very often a cripple with but a single ray left is found by fishermen and  collectors. When completely broken in  two the starfish' becomes two distinct  fish, and the growing process continues. The brittle starfish, it is believed,  in many instances breaks off its owu  rays at the approach of danger. For  this reason it is difficult to obtain a perfect specimen.  A starfish can neither see nor hear.  Neither has it thc sense of smell.   In  spite  of  these  seeming  impediments,  nevertheless, it seeks nnd devours its ���������  prey as neatly as an ordinary fish. The  starfish lies upon its prey and folds its  "arms,"  or rays, completely  about it.'  Then it pushes its stomach out through  its mouth and will wrap even a large[  oyster and shell within the folds of the'  stomach.  The mouth of the starfish Is  In the center of its rays. ;  Some great ships are today employed  almost wholly in seeking for starfish'  specimens in deep seas, and there are  hundreds of men who spend a portion  of their time in collecting starfish in  the interests of science. Many of the  specimens collected by ships are taken  from depths of one and even two milea.-  Made lo order and Repaired al short  notice.   Drill Sharpened  hy us always gives satisfaction.

She.was a Wisconsin girl of more  than the usual share of this world's  goods who became engaged to tbe man  from Maine, a civil engineer, whose  business was in the far west. Compelled to separate soon after the engagement, 2,000 miles soon divided the  two lovers. Business duties called the  man away, but frequent letters helped  to shorten the months of separation.  Turning her attention to cooking, this  girl of almost unlimited, wealth soon  proved her devotion to her absent lover  by mastering the difficulties of cooking in anticipation of that happy time  when she should have a home of her  own. Triumphantly she wrote her  lover, "I can make lemon pie, custard  pie and Washington pie all myself!"  Then did this man from Maine and the  land of orchards assert his loyalty to  his home state most vigorously and  back over the wires, 2,000 miles away,  came this telegram, brief, but emphatic,  "Try apple!"  &&sc^m&l$������&&^Sg!s^S?B������?M  Si  OLD HICKORY  FURNITURE  Is Oust Perfcclion  for Your        ''  LAWN OR VERANDAH  It is just finished naturally���������wilh the hark on���������not roughly���������com  fort lias been carefully considered.
