The~Kussians  were stationary     when first sighted  and most'of,the,    colliers were half  empty.

Rojestvensky,  they ing anno,lncemcnt  today.   0n May 25  point out, is a believer in strategy  and mystification and his cruise in  Ihe Pacific may have been only to  avoid the danger of mines and torpedo boat attacks in the shallow  waters of the Straits of Dor-  mosa, but to deceive thc Japanese into the belief that his objective  was either "the Thiigaru of Laperouse  Straits; while in reality he changed  his course and headed for, the Straits  of Korea. As a matter of fact Rojestvensky seems fro have mystified  his own admiralty as much as , the  Japanese. On one hand the appear-  ance.of Russian colliers and converted cruisers, oil Shanghai is taken as  confirmatory of the theory that Ro-i  jestvensky's fighting division headed,  after circling the island of Formosa,  off nearly $1,000 a>'week from the j lions fl0m Mcs.srs Howard and Stock  strikers' funds.

The  majority of the "officers were inclined  i to do.ibt the accuracy of the Tokio  report,  believing that     Rojestvensky  : with liis'lighting ships is heading  northward for an eastern port of Japan.

I A good deal has been heard from  time to time of the extent to which the  Japanese pushed their spy system,  | both in Manchuria and Russia, before #  the war. The accuracy of the following story Is guaranteed by the Matin:  Toward tbe end of 1898 a Japanese  from Kiusiu arrived in St. Petersburg  and opened a tea warehouse on the  Nevsky prospect. Shops of this kind  simpjy swarm in the Russian capital,  but all tbe same the Japanese prospered exceedingly.  In view of the big business be anticipated at the Easter festivities during  ( the following spring the tea merchant  ��������� got over Ave of his fellow countrymen as assistants.   These were all ex-  , treniely agreeable,   tactful young fellows,  who  quickly  ingratiated  themselves with the aristocratic clientele of  the shop.  I Union  Brewing Co- \  | NANAIMO,   B.

How  to Tell   If  Worsted  or   "Woolen  I ClotliH Are Adulterated.  ] Worsted cloths are less often adulter-  nted than woolen's and are more easily-  detected.  A cotton worsted Is a lie on  ';��������� the face of It, for the cotton stands out  \ with prominence.   \Jut often  a cotton  j thread is twisted with a worsted  thread, and to determine its presence  it is only necessary to take tlie twist  ; out of the thread and then examine Its '  component parts,    *  ! Cotton, having n long staple, can be  carded and combed with wool to be  spun into worsted yam. This i.s done  to cheapen the cost of production. Cotton is carded and spun with wool: nnd  \ shoddy, not so much'5 to ehcapon the  yarn, for cotton is generally as expensive, as. soino shoddies,' but. Is introduced to give 'strength or spinning  qualities to the stock. In-many-cases'  the shoddy is of such short staple that  It would not stand the., drawing in  spinning, and, as it would make the  cost of the yarn too high to put in  enough wool ^to give that lacking  strength, cotton is put in for this pur>  pose.  ;     The percentage of cotton dn a fabric'  can  be 'determined,   in   this   manner: .  Take a small piece of cloth and w'oiglv'1  It.  Now boil it for five minutes in a fi-:  per cent solution of caustic soda.  Take  out what is left, and, if any, it is nil  cotton.  The wool will'all bo dissalvod.  The percentage of shoddy cannot be do-  tervnined except by experience.  A cloth or yarn with shoddy In It Is '  easily detected by-Its feel. Cloth made f  of all new wool is softer feeling than j  one containing shoddy, for the latter \  lias lost that new, soft, springy feel  peculiar to wool.���������American Wool and  Cotton Reporter.

Luxury, "the fertile parent of a whole  family of diseases," modifies it greatly,  of course, but this is a manageable factor, says the London Chronicle.' We  have only to recall personal experience  to realize tlie force of 'Int'ellectunl"stini-  nlntion. The interest of sport will sustain men without fatigue for distances  they otherwise could not traverse. The  excitement of strife will often mask  the presence of wounds. Self forgetful-  iiess in all the walks of life, under the  utress of love, chivalry or accepted  duty, doubles human endurance.
