At that time  a general election must have been  in  progress,  for     the Chronicle contains  elect-on     results, letters from candidates returning thanks to their friends  for  .electing     them     to Parliament.  Theie aro also     invitations from successful candidates to their supporters  to    attend   banquets  by  which   they  apparently  intended  celebrating their  successes.  The paper despite its great age is  in a splendid stale of preservation  and cauhercnd without difKculty.

Thc  Call  says:  Collins' explanation!  of why he came back is as complicat-''  ed and clastic as  the utterances  flic Oracle of Delhi.

"The first time he wasin court up  there," remarked Gibson, "he declared that, he .had come "under the protection of the British flag to get  justice. They crowd in the court clapped  their hands and  cheered him for  UlH."

The first  thing  he did   "was to  ask  for  a postponement until November 2nd.      He  wanted  to interpose an objection,  ho  said, and would require that     much  time  to prepare affidavits.      He objected  to being  tried  by  Judge Lon-  I non and declared that he would give  good and  sulficicnt grounds   for    the  objection.     He maintained  that     if  Jndue  Lawlor  were prohibited from  appointing another judge to   try it,  and that  it should have been transferred to another department.  District  Attorney Byington declared that there was no reason  why the  arraignment should not proceed,  and  the court  so ordered.    Collins       was  I given until Friday morning to      an-  'swer.   He declared  that he would act  as his own     counsel and asked, that  Attorney      Broadnian   be  associated I  with him.  "I ask that the bail he raised to  $15,000," said District Attorney By-  ington.  Collins  was   on his  feet in  an   instant    with      a flood   of objections.  Judge Lennon  cut him short-  "The  men mdicted     for timber frauds,  the  trials of   whom come up next week in  Moscow.

Dwyer    answered,  'I  am  looking at you.        I've,been waiting  for a chance to get at you."     I said  'Come on.'  "He walked over to fcie, but I toad  no idea   he would strike'me.

According to a Belgrade correspondent, the publication of tbe story of  Queen Natalie's intrigue to revevg*  herself 011 Servia, followed by the sudden withdrawal by tbe postal autbori  ties of all the new coronation stamps,  is the cole topic of conversation  throughout the Balkan states.  In orCcv to celebrate King Peter'*  coronation thc Servian government" de  eided to issue a series of large postal  labels bearing the new monarch's portrait beside that of his ancestor Kara  george.      ,    -  .The engraving was unfortunately In  trusted to a Frenchman named Mou  chon, a person, it, is alleged, verj  friendly toward Queen Natalie, and hi  very skillfully introduced into the de  sign for the nc\y postage stamps lh<  guastly features of the queen's murder  eU son, King Aloxiindor.  A vast number of the coronatioi  stumps were issued to the public befor<  Jt became known lo the authorities  that the new issue was regarded hy  many of King rotor's superstitious  Riibjeels as a '���������heavenly sign" that th* I  new monarch's reign was to'be "brie."  and' bloody."  lf���������one of the new stamps be held op-  ���������Ide down the unmistakable death  mask of King Alexander may bo seen,  formed by -i povlion of King Peter's  * bead with that of bis ancestor, Kara-  george. The nostrils of the two heads  together form the eyes of the murdered monarch, the mustaches make the  eyebrows, and the eyebrow and eye of  Karageorge form King Alexander's  nose and mouth.  Tbe "death mask stamps," as the new  'issue   has   become   known,   have   undoubtedly made a great impression iu  the army and among the uneducated  classes.  "I learn on the best authority,'; concludes the correspondent, "that the  government is making desperate efforts  to buy up as many of the dangerous  labels as possible and is even sending  agents abroad to ^France, Germany  and England to secure them at any cost  from speculators ami foreign stamp  dealers."���������London News.

Whether the internal heat of the  earth was in the first place due to this  presence of radio active matter or to  other causes is a very debatable question, for the answer involves considerations of the origin of the earth as a  member of the solar system. Whatever  view may be taken of this problem,  there can be no doubt that the discovery of the distribution of radio active  matter in the earth throws grave doubt  on the validity of those calculations of  the' age of the earth which are based  on the assumption that it is a simple  ���������cooling body and tcuds to show that  the present internal beat will be maintained for a much longer interval than  was at first supposed.  On this theory of the maintenance of  tbe internal heat no definite limit can  be set for the age o������ the earth, fcut  some deductions can be made of the  probable variation of the internal neat  within time.���������Professor Ernest Blither-  ford iu Harper's Magazine.

A Story of Tom Watnon.  (Before Thomas E. Watsou attained  to Ills present confidence while addressing audiences he had several misadventures oil the platform. On one occasion be was speaking to a mixed  crowd not far from bis home and wa9  blazing away in good style when a  Singularly beautiful young woman entered the hall. The orator, impressed  with the girl's loveliness, lost the  thread of his discourse;, hesitated and  finally stopped. The audience, not understanding his embarrassment, encouraged him with cries of "Go on,','  but Watson knew he could not respond  with good effect. His quick wit came  to his rescue, however. Stepping to  the front of thc-platform, be said in a  low voice, "Ladies and gentlemen, I  should be glad to continue, but the lady  who has just come, in fairly took my  breath away." Then he sat down amid  a hearty round of applause.  WHAT TOTEMISM IS.  It is inteiesting to note that tote-  mi.sm  is found   not  only___in_,.Alasika.  but among  the  NorUi^nierfcW   Indians,,    the' .aborigines '. of Australia,  the     Hottentots of Africa, and eACn  the hill tiibes of_ India. Totems are  also common among 'the Samoans..  Briefly  thc totem is  the badge of a  clan or tribe,  but  it signifies   a great  deal more than mere political or social alliance    It is iiot  only  a tribal  emblem,  but also a family sign, not  meiely  a symbol-of nationality,  but  also an expicssion  of  religion;      not  simply  a bond of union among primitive peoples,  but also  a regulator of  the marriage laws and of other   social institutions.    A totem has been  -defined as  "a class of  material     ob-  pcots   which a savage  regaids     wit|i  superstitious  icspcct,   believing", that  there exists  between   him and ������Very  member of the class  an intimate rand  special  relation."  Among   the Ojihway   Indians there  aie no lower   than   twenty-three "difii  dent totems.   Nine of these'are quadrupeds,   marking out   the wolf,   the  hear,      thc  beaver  and 'other clans,  eight are birds, live arc fishes      and  one is the snal������e.  ' Scmie   cxtra"orci*Lnary   superistitions  regarding- totems  prevail in  Samoa.  Thus      it is belicied  that if a tin tie-  man eats of a turtle he will      grow  \ery ill,  and  the voice ol the turtle  will be heard inside him saying' "He  ate me.    lam killing   him."   If a banana man uses a banana leaf for      a  cap heJ>������ecomes   bald,    if a butterfly  nia'i    ^catches  a'butterfly it   strikes  him dead.    If a fowl man eats a fowl  dcliriumi  and  death  iesiiilts,   and   so  on,  all  going to  show   that  the   totem has something cf the ijjiallty of a  fetich as well us the significance of a  family emblem.  Regarding totem'sm, it is to be  noted that the relation, of mutual  help and protection includes 'also the  totem itself���������that is to say, if la man  takes care of his tot em he expects  the totem to return /the compliment.  If   the  totem is  a dangerous   anini'vl  B, S. We in robe,  HIGH STREET,  LADYSMITH, B.  mmwtm mimmmnmrn���������mmeam  SYNOPSIS OF CANADIAN NORTH  WEST MINING REGULATIONS.

(From the Nows Oct. 25.)  Much disappointment  was expressed yesterday aftciroon when a rumor  was started that the wrestling'match  was off.   This  was not  the case,     it  subsequently      proved,   but  Johnson  had declined  to put up ihe remaining  $J5,  urging as a rc-iason  that lie  had been injured in training and was  under the doctor's "Cure, and lor the  same reasons claiming immunity, un-  tlcr the articles,  from forfeit.   ' He  would, however, wrestle Cray for the  gate receipts and  after fuiili'er nogo-  lions this was agreed to.  At 8.30 A. McKcnzic and Joe  Stant led off in a preliminary, uvo  out of three, won by MoKenzie, and  at about 9.30 the two local champions locked gi'ips. c It was ovidjnt *  that Johnson was not -.������ condition  whether frorti overtraining or ill  health   was  hard   to   determine,   ond  lit seemed     to   many   that  he should  not ha\e gone on  the mat at     all.  I Cray, on the otfter hand,  was in the  pink     of condition,  as round  as       a  baby and muscular as an ox.
