She -gave, no evidence of the terrible  agony .indicted  by   the  Rock  Island  tiain  which  had cruelly mangled her,  as she was   attempting to alight. In  an adjoining   room - her parents   and  .sister  were prostrated with grief.

A  large cedar  slump over  *1   feet in  diameter  was  struck  hy  another log and  torn  out  of     the ground.     as    if it  had  been  blown up with dynamite.  PURCHASED HOTEL BUSINESS.

''If the mon were dissatisfied,  tomorrow,"   continued  Mr.   -mson,'  "*'I  would be right  with them rw������th  tho      organization  behind     y \ sat,,  which at     all times was a'firm'be- ������  lie������'er of  arbitration and concilliatioa  "I  want to give Mr. King   great  credit,"   continued   Mr.   Gibson,   "for  his diplomacy  in  bringing- about  tho  settlement  and  only  wish  that     he  had come here sooner." c- ~-  Asked if he intended organizing thc  rest of  the Island  immediately,  Mr.  Gibson   replied  that  he   was  awaiting wor<l jn that connection     from  the executive board,  when,  if so  desired,    he   would   go  ahead   at  once  and try 'to "affiliate  the rest of  the  Island  with  the Mine  Workers.  ��������� '."���������I  suppose you are glad  that the  strike  is  over,  so   that you can go  home   to   your  family?"  queried' the  reporter.  "Yes,"      replied   Mr.   Gibson,    "I  am  certainly   pleased  that   the  difficulty is ended, but  it will be quite a -  time yet .before I can leave, as      no  doubt there will still   be-quite a num.

I intend' to'do  so  until   every case  is relieved,    .'his  is  typical  of our  organization."  Asked as 'to h,'js opinion  of  the min.  ers  of  Nanaimo,  Mr.  Gibson replied  that  he could   not speak  in  too good ���������  terms  of   them.     In  all of  his dealings with- men in any locality he had  never   come   across   such   an   intelligent     and law-abiding class  of miners  as   there  are  in   Nanaimo.       In  their  four   months'  struggle for their  r.gh(,s  they had shown themselves to  be of the  true metal  and equal     to  every  emergency.  The resolution passed by tlie meeting  was as follows:  Resolved:  That thc action of     the  committee lye endorsed by   this meeting and   that the committee  be authorized   to sign  the agreement.  The resolution was tested  by a secret ballot,  and  resulted as  follows:  For       ..,..,...-..,,...,..,....,.v    236.  Against    , i..���������      93.

Suzuki, ,0f the  Japanese navy, today in his address  before the convention of military sur  geons, made what was declared by  Medical Director J. S. Wise of the  United States navy, to be tbe most  valuable contribution oi modem times  to naval surgery.  "Much   of our  success  in   thc treatment of  wounds,"   said  Dr.   Suzuki,  "1 ascribe to tlie fact that before every engagement   I ordered  each member of the crew lo balhc .and put on  perfectly     clean underclothing. In    a  great     many  cases  of shot   wounds  fragments of clothing arc.  carried into the  body,  and our insistence     on  clean   underclothing   prevented   many  cases  of  blood  poisoning  among  our  wounded.  At  "Our     experience  during   thc  war  proved   thai  the conning   Lower  of a  warship   is  a most,  dangerous  situation:  fragments of shells  penetrating  through the slits in  the tower made"  to furnish  thc commanding  officer   a  range    ��������� of vision   do   great   damage.  Realizing this fact,  Admiral  'logo in  all   the  naval engagements,   directed  his fleet from thc compass bridge of  thc  JUikasa   without   receiving,       a  wound. l  "The  vision   of  the   men   who   fire  the guns must necessarily   be  of   tlie  very   best,  if  their   shots   arc       to  coiniL    Before every  engagement  the  surgeons in tbe Japanese fleet examined carefully   tho eyes  of  all        (he  gunners.    Any   of   them   found    with  slight impairment, of   vision       were  trealcd,   and   if   the impairment  was  too     grave    to  yield   lo  immediate  frealineiil,   ihey  were   transferred   lo  another station  and   their   places filled by men vvlionc eyes were perfect..'

An    impression   has   gone   abroad  that    thc  Japanese are  remarkably  skilful  agriculturists,   who  cultivate  up to its utmost productivity the arable   land cf  their   najtional  domain  and, not a little of sympathy western  people feel  for  the Japanese   desire  to gain new territories is based upon the prevailing notion  lhat     the  country   cannot   support  its   present  population,  says Thomas F. Milliard  in  Scrivncr's magazine.   It   will probably surprise many   ������eople to, learn  that  there is now only   *oout    one  half thc arable land in Japan in cultivation.   Some time during last year  the  Japanese  government  appointed  a commission    to     inquire into the  state     of agriculture in  the realm,  whicii     is  due lime reported certain  Tacts  bearing   Jic-eji.    Commenting  upon lhc  findings of this commTssion  f-ne     of the leading and  more conservative journals of Japan  had  this   to  say:  "According to the latest statistics  compiled  by the geological investigation bureau of the department      of  agriculture and commerce,   the   present  total  area of  cultivated  fields  in   Japan forms only 13  2-3 per cent  of  her total  area.    Comparing  this  with the ratios of cultivated      land  in  foreign countries  it will  be seen  that the   land cultivated  by countries  in Europe covers from one third  to one half of the total  areas.    . .  ��������� ��������� .     From' the  above  figures     it  will  be seen that Japan  still'has 48  per    cent      of  the  total   land   area  which can be  turned  into eulUVa'ted  truth.    So  little does  the Japanese  government     subscribe lo   this view-  that it has in late years taken steps  to      improve,   agricultural  methods  throughout  the country  by the    establishment of bureaus for investigation  and  sludy and  model  farms for  the demonstration  of and  dissemination of knowledge.    The government  has also endeavored to stimulate ag.  ricullure by a system of loans to the  farmers, to be applied only to specific agricultural purposes.   Many lecturers on the art of agriculture aie  sent out by the government to       instruct the  people  in better  methods  and strong efforts are being made to  introduce     new crops and to extend  the cultivated area.   Thc truth      is  that    Japanese agricultural methods  are,   in      the main,  antiquated    and  wasteful, which is to say; that     lhe  national  trails and conditions  which  hamper   Japanese   industry   in       all  forms apply also to this.   The  value I  of  annual  agricultural  products   per  capital of     total     population is only  about 20 yen ($10),  or less lha.ii the  value, I believe, of the American annual   egg  crop.    Figures   bearing   upon    the   amount of human labor   lp.  plied   to   agricultural  production    in  Japan show that one man cares  for  less than one acre.

There is ao present, about 5,-  000,000 cliO (a cho is equal to 2.45  acres) of cultivated land in the country, 'caving some four and a half injl  lion eho to be shill cultivated. Should  efforts be made to turn this arable  land to advantage, the increase of  population   is  little   to   be  feared."  Not only is it true that half the  land in Japan which might be made  productive is now producing nothing,  but even lhat which is in cultivation  does not produce what it should.  The average tourist in Japan, observing the tiny fields and gencraily  ncat aspect of agricultural conditions  jumps al once to the conclusion.that  the    Japanese  "No,"  said the passenger in     tho  seedy  suit,   "business isn't what    il  used     to -be.
