No other Pacific route v,m  be able to compete with the C.p.K.  service.  The new ships win be known as the  Empress  of Britain and  the Empress'  of Ireland.   They uie wen under con- I  struction at this     time and  will  he  the best of the Canadian Pacific ships  contnciuLcs along letter to the Lon  don Times on "The character of the  Japanese  people."  He writes:���������"I love honor and  believe iin the Japanese, among   whom.  1 have  been  living for  the  past nine  yeais,   and   expect  that  their  future  m  many  lines   will  be greater   than  ther past or their present,  and thai  the power is fortanate which by turn.  ly  and  generous  recognition  has  oL  taincd  not  only  their  alliance,  but  their grateful   menelslup.      In     Eng-.  land  men so patriotic  would  certainly lie noble;      men so .self-iestrajmeel  would     almost certainly  be  moial,  men so self-forgetting would  surcl.  be honest     in  trade;  men so  brave  woirkl scorn  to  tell a lie,   men with  such  high  ideals  would  be  strongly  individual,  they   would   mould   their  surroundings      to  themselves  rather  than     conform to    thorn,   whatever  they may be;  they coulel  be rcokoneel  upon to remain much the same .under  all  cirQuinstances.   We  find  con-  spicuorusly displayed in. the Japanese I  those     virtues    which come  to  the  front naturally  where the theory  of  life   involves  .individual '.effaconient���������  those virtues, so hn-cd for   us  individualistic  western  people  to  practise;  and  we take it for granted that the  virtues associated with individual energy  and self-dependence  which     ar.  so easy to us as to become a  'sYjii qua  non.'  in  one whom  we esteem  will be  present also.    But it'^s not  so.    The  Japanese      are    as deficient  in   this  group of equalities as we are in      the  others, and  no one knows and       regrets  this  more  than  the  real  leaders   of Japan,   who know  both     the:  east tuid  the west.   Happily,  also, no  people that  I have met  with  are so  giaet  to be toiel  of their defects   '  as  tho  Japanese,   or when   they  arc told  so ready to consider with good  temper what is said with a view to amendment -if they find the  criticism to  be just, and,  at the same time, not.  patronizing,   but sympathetic.   Jlha-ve  not the slightest fear but  that this  paper,   is it should  find  its   way   back  to the Japanese press,  will  bring the  writer gratitude rather  than  dislike  by   its pkU'ti   speaking.

On the other   hand,   there  is one   animal  which  has   found   a temporary  home  among  the  black  and  tan tei'i'iors,   but cannot  be classi'l'eel as  a elog or  rat or  niongeesc.      Gypsy   is   the   name     of  the   aaimial.    She   is described       as  "age, .breeder and pedigree unknown'-'  and   priced  at  ������150.   She  is  a tiny,  t.inn'd,  staring,  slate-grey  elog,   absolutely hairless except  for a       little  down  on  the under  side. ; She      so  perplexed   the judges   yesterday    that  they  gave  her a "reserve,"  says     a,  London  paper.  The' owner  or Gypsy   is  Mr.       M.  Gardner,  editor  of  the '-'Alloa Journal,"  N.B.    He  has  refused   to pay a'  license for the hairless   animal,    and  has   been     fined accordingly.   Coming  to London  with the freak,  he would  not   pay      railway carriage   for her,  and  trouble with   the company       is  pending.       Gypsy was much  adored  yesterday.    Offers   were   made       for  purchase,   without avail.    Gypsy   i.s,  of     course,  .i-.st a freak of bm-ding.  which freaks  are well  known- to- occur  among  very  highly bred  dogs as  a result  eif excessive breeding.  They  are, however, sulTiciently  rare to give  them high  value among fanciers     of  toy   dogs.

THE LADYSMITH IRON  AND STOVE WORKS  The Ladysmith Stove & Iron Works  Company are certainly entitled to  ���������congratulations for the manner in  which they are making uvai stove  h.istoiy.  In Nanaimo,     in   Duncans, in Vancouver and     other neighboring  to,vvns  a'dvsim'th     stoves arc already selling  and are spoken of with pride and sat.  isfacuon   as  hcv'c    made  and-among  Ihe   best.    The  stove   sold   at   retail  for  Wo is a splendidly made  ,  useful  and   ornamental   article.      It   cannot  be  equalled in price or style by  any-  eastern   or    impci'ted      make      The  larger ranges     are in   the same best  cia.ss.    A smaller slovc  is  also  manufactured   by  the  company  and   other  .styles win soon be put upon  the market.     The force of   men   at tbe works  will soon   be  increased.  Lack  of capi  tal has  to a certain extent held     tbe  Company  bach  in   their   output,   but  it has    not   proventc I  them      from  manufacturing        the        best     grades.        It     is     understo*nd that more  capital is soon     to. be taken into the  company auu ihe     works made more  extensive.        There is     a very large  trade in goods of lhe company's class  that no ojitside firms can pay freight  and  compete  in.   It  :s  now  only fair  to expect that     the making off stoves  by this company win speedily develop  into  a large  and   profitable industry.  Certainly  the original   organizers _ are  entitled     to and have the best wishes  of Ladysmi th's  citizens  for the .complete realization  of their ambition to  make the Ladysmith     Iron and Stove  Company one of the largest and most  successful concerns in the west.  the  One of the novelties  shown  at  Palace is  a puppy narse,   which  is a  variation   of  the   incubator,   and pro-  3,5(10 Special  prizes  and  prize     mon- vides  a luxurious   and  ejqiiaibly-lieatcd  e.y total  at nearly ������7,000,  and    the  judges, are far,from their ultimate d  cisions for  the championships. in maternal duties.  home for  puppies  whose  mothers fail  MARINE.

It is quite a fad among those of  rs who sometimes speak on a subject  t ithout giviiiir it proper consideration  to, plume,'.ourselves on Canadian justice, and proudly declare that we al  li ast as a nation are not in thc same  c ass for inx punishment of crimes  ���������that is so of lea shown m the states  to  the south of us.  It may be: vvonh  our while in such a  c isc   to    wonder      how    it  happens  1 :iai   the Grand  Jury did not present  in indictment at Vancouver last w-c-elc  in the wen known  Keed case, auel the  newspapers     even do not continent on  1 he subject      In  the well known Go.v  case an exchange comments very fairly on the case, as follows  - "In iTiVrnng last   week to thc case  ot   Charles     Gow charged  with man-  s'augh ter in thc Province of Ontario,  ve did not have  Then the particulars  of tbe trial.     These have been received.       The     judge who tried the case  does     not show     up in   much better  li-rht than 'the coroner's jury who refused to.   implicate Gow.     Gow was  confident thai  the shots  fired  by him  irl.d not kin  the     boy and itis to his  crcdii that    he has  been very  open in  fji   his    statements     and epurted  in-  -v. esligation.

The judge deferred  sen-  ���������'Icnre until the day following and then  sentenced Gow lo three months.   Gov.,  rvvas ably defended and every possible-  thing done to     dear him.

Think of ninety days  ���������for murdering    a poor little boy  who  tould     do no harm.        His life ended  iii a single moment because of the iel-  irr-ilic action of a man who by his own  ���������statement showed     that he fired two  .or three    shots    in the direction, of u  house, though he believed far enough  taway   lo    do no  harm.

My  lady's writing desk  is equipped with  brass or copper furnishings hammered  in the pattern of her crest.  Entire ueia of tableware, including  gold and silver plate and the most  beautiful of glazed china, are done to  order that their owner may exploit tiie  family crest. Just at present there  seems absolutely no limit to the methods for flashing one's crests ou less fortunate fellow men.  One well known bachelor who la extremely proud of his crest has a novel  pipe rack. The background is a whole  calfskin, in Uie center of which is,,  burned his crest, and this Is surround-'  ed by pipe racks holding smoking  equipment from every corner of the  globe.  He who has not a family crest or tho  price thereof may employ a substitute  If he happens to be in college. Here an  Insignia of his chosen fraternity takes  thc place of his family crest, adorning  Pierre loti'm Oddttt������m.  Pierre   Loti,   whose   adaptation   of  r "King  Lear"   Is , the   latest dramatic  f novelty in Paris, is nothing If not ver-  { satile.   Naval officer, novelist and aca-  ; clemician, he is a man of many role*  . Ordinarily he is the most unapproachable of men, speaks little, shuns society and generally  plays  the  hermit  ,' Then, after a long interval, once every  tec years or so he suddenly announces  a grand fete, and the residence of tha  recluse is invaded by hundreds of visitors.   One of his most famous entertainments was that which be gave last  year, when a wonderful Chinese pagoda which he had built was inaugurated  by a grand party, which all tha guests  were requested to attend in Chinese  costume.    All the servants, host and  hostess were likewise garbed in Chinese dress.    Afterward followed supper, at which sharks' fins, swallows'  nests and other Chinese delicacies wera  consumed.  Bog- glides In Ireland.  Compared  with  some  of  the   bog  slides which have taken place in Ire-  laud the recent disaster in County Roscommon may be regarded as of trifling  importance.   In 1708 a slip of a mile  long and a quarter of a mile broad occurred at Castlcgardo and buried three  houses containing twenty-one persons,  A similar disaster took place at Adder-  goolo,   in   Gal way,   thirty-flva   years  later. Fresh in the public memory is th������  bog slide of eight years ago.   Between 2  and 3 o'clock one bleak December morning tho edge of the Knocknageeba bog,  overlooking the Ownacree valley, near  I Killarney, gave way and liberated a  j vast flood of peat and water.' The flood  1 rushed along with  startling rapidity,  ! swept away the stone built house of  j Cornelius   Donnelly,   Lord  Kenmare'f  f quarry steward, and Donnelly, his wlfa  and six children perished.���������Westnjln*  ' ster Gazett*  the furnishings of his room, bis stationery and his cigarette paper, to say,  nothing ol his jewelry."  +++++++++++++++++++++���������������++t+.'>-+-M-++-������������'������ + ��������� + ������T'������������ + 4*������4 ������ + +���������+-���������  x  LAD/SMITH TRANSFER CD.

When the journeyman plumber went  to a Harlem apartment house to fix a  broken steam pipe bis tool chest attracted attention. It was an army  knapsack that had seen service in tbe  Philippines.  "Yes," said the plumber ln response  to a question by the woman who lived  ln the apartment,, "that is an army  knapsack. My eon brought it homo  with him from the Philippines. When  I asked him to give it to me to improvise into a tool chest he did so. I  did not want it simply because it was  an army knapsack or because it had  been with my son in the Philippines. I  wanted it because it was light, strong |  and useful. After I had fixed It up it  exactly filled the idea of a tool chest I  had carried in my mind for a long, long  time. But," with a sigh, "I shall have  to give it up."  "Why?" inquired the woman of th������  house.  "Because," replied the plumber, "It  takes half my time answering questions about the blamed thing."

Unlike man, tne starnsn wiiicn 10S���������  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 andj  collectors. When completely broken in  two the starfish Aecom.es two distinct  fish, and the growing process continues. The brittle starfish, it is believed,  in many-instances-breaks off its own  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 the sense of smell. In  spite of these seeming impediments,  nevertheless, it seeks and devours its  prej* 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 largo  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-emploj-ed  almost wholly In seeking for starfish  specimens in deep seas, and there aro  hundreds of men who spcud a portion  of. their time in collecting starfish in  the interests of science. Many of the  specimens collected by ships tire taken  from depths of one and even two miles.  nemovlugr Tumors Early.  If it were generally known among Intelligent people that great numbers of  Innocent tumors soomer or later become malignant and that malignant tumors often simulate benign tumors and  remaiu quiescent for a great while, the  siifTerers would unhesitatingly consent  to the removal of these morbitl growths  in their inception, lo.ug before the possible advent of serious mischief, at  when the cure might be effected by minor operations which would teave the  smallest scars, especially in such parts  ���������as the face, neck, arms or hands.

She was a Wisconsin girl of more  than tho usual share of this world's  goods who became engaged to the man  from Maine,' a civil engineer, whoso  business was in the far west. Compelled to separate soon after thc 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 cook-  iue; in anticipation of that happy tinio  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 homo state most vigorously and  back over the wires, 2,000 miles away,  came this telegram, brief, but emphatic,  "Try apple!"
