At the Aquarium two hunger artists, Sig. Suc-  ci and M. Alexandre .Jacquez, some  years ago God for premier hoiiois in  England by abstaining fiom food for  forty-two days, and m thc eighties a  man 11 lined JUerial.ti maintained health and spirits for 50 days on a Spar-  fan diet limited to sips of water.  But     even such    feats as   these are  mere pauses between meals compared  with some or the feats of past genci-  ations,  if wc arc tobeiice contemporary records, says an exchange. Thus  we learn    that     a young French giri,-  Christini Michciot, after an attack, of  fever,  was utterly unable  to swallow  any form of food, and from November  to  .July swallowed nothing more  sus-  aiiiing     Iban    water.   Remarkable-to  say.  after    nearly     four years  or tins  slaivation     diet, she     recovered  her  health and lived long in  lhe land. For  a year and three-quarters,  it- is said,  a   Ros'sslnre  wcfmaii named  Kalhcrn'e  McLeod     actually lived   without partaking of     any  form      of sustuianee.  Once during     this pencil  an attempt  was     made to     iorce   food down her  throat, but the.     woman narrowly escaped   suflc-cation,      and the attempt  had to be abandoned.  A ITarrowgate girl of twelve, one  Anne Walsh, lived for eighteen'months  on a daily glass of water and wine���������  a dietary on which she somehow managed to preserve health and good  looks; Monica "Murclietcria, a Swn-  liian, spent a whole year without  swallowing either food or drink, and  for three years she ncvci slept, wnne  Dr. Wnian, an eighteenth century phyf  sician, had among his patients a monomaniac who for Oh days refused lo  I ouch food of any description. About  the same Lime too . wo^arc informed  lhat a French boy was never known  to partake of food during twelve  moivths. ' and yet was able to do a  "Cod day's work cm his father's farm.  Dr. Plot in his Natural History of  St-ili'ordshirc, tells  a remarkable stc-i  iy crust of ivead nnd hglass or waver  and .set, was famed for lus muscular  .strength and Ins plowing pei 101 usances. Uiu'orUmaleiy we do not, know  what John ate when nobody was  looking.  ,ln the two cases which foi lew we  get on to more reliable ground, since  lhe feats described are htlie moie re-  marJ'.abie than those of our own lime.  In 1771 a Slamrord man made a wager of ������lS that he would touch nei-  Iher food nor drink for 51 days, and  he won his bet handsomely 'lhe records, however, are silent as io the  price he afterwards paid for Ins defiance of nature.  The second of these old-time fast crs  was the famous     John Scott, of Tc-  vipt'daie. whose fasts have survived to  our own day enshrined in border verso.  His  first  experiment as a faster  was  when he was incarcerated for no! paying his creditors.   So     indignant, was  he, that, not a mouthful of prison fare  passed lus li'sfor 32 days.   The fame  of this  feat  got abroad,   and the   king,  curious to tesi the     man under strip-  Rent   conditions,     hadliim locked up,  wilh   a   loaf of     bread    and a jug o'  waler, in a room of Edinburgh casii"  When the     door was  opened   at. rlii;  end  of   32 days tho     ..read' and water  "vvcrc qfiite     ���������untouched and   .lohn  seemed none  the   worse     for his ab-  sli'iition.   In     later years    Ucott cx-  hibi tied his  powers  as a  modest,  eater  to  tlic    pope,   and his     fame  became  great throughout     Europe; while,  to  crown Ins fasiing   performances -when  lie was thrown into prison for railing  against one     of Henry "VTI's (hvorcs  he threw a" his own records into the  shade| by going  without     bite or   sup  for 50 days-  _a^______________^_____ta__A'4_Mu^>^^^__fii_!Ai_Cdi_lkv1^_MU'#Chy'V  ""a  >MW������r^A>\ _g������r  I  I  1  SYNOPSIS OF CANADIAN NORTH  WEST MINING   REGULATIONS.

Eugene Bernstein,   the eminent. Rus
sian   pii nisf,   who, is  spending      the
summer in  Spokane,   is of  Uie opinion that.    _Jupan    must, surely have,
the best of Lhe peace, treaty.
"Of-course Japan has  the best, of
lhe    l.reuty,"  said     I\lr.   Bernstein.
"Why should she not be? Why should
Russia be victorious   in negotiations
when she has  been defeated in  war'"
'���As To' secret   treaties and      that
Sort of   thing no one can speak Pcis,-
itivcly,' but  you   maybe  sure   that
Japan  has everything   that  she   has
asked   for.      All of   Russia's   bluster
about not paying, a kopeck of indemnify <\.vas    -what   Americans       call
'bluff.'    Russia    bad   lo have peace,
had to have it     al ,any consideration.
Her internal   conditions   made  it   imperative.
"Few   people  have   any  idea   what
the  conditions  are   today   in   Russia.
I keep 111 touch with  the cuncnt. events  there  through  Russian   newspapers  and   through   correspondents.    I
know,  and you may depend  upon it,
the Japanese l'now  that peace is absolutely necessary    to  Russia  now',-''
and  as- any cost  if   the present  goy^
eminent  is to maintain  itself,  II,   is
utterly   incredible  to  one who .knows
thc real condition of things  that Rus
s-ia has  triumphed! in   the peace'negotiations.
"As    soon'  as the     names of the
peace commissioners   were announced
I knew  that the whole all'air  was--to
be one  of dollars   and   cents.    . Why
else was, Witte appointed?  Russia has
greater diplomats  than Witle,  more
clever,  more 1 car nod  men,  but Witte
is the greatest    financier in  Russia,
and     there,  in  a nutshtll,  you have
the  whole   thing.
''���'.'rejoice  !>i   the fact, that peacc.is
being      accomplished,   but   1 tremble
when   T.think what   is nevf   to  come
to   Russia  and   her pcopl::.   I have   a
sister in   Odessa  who  wrote me   recently  that conditions   there  and  in
all   the, provinces  were u,:n.br_-lievcable.
���My. ha'T literally  stands erect      on
my   head,'   she   wrote,   'when   I think
of what, is in.store for us  here.' She
writes   that no  one  is allowed       to
leave  the city, ��� though  many  persons
have  offered   thousands   of  roubles for
permission   to  leave,
"Do you   know   that  conditions  in
Warsaw   and  in   Poland  are such thai
no man can sell   his  home  or any pro
perty?   i\"o,   there   is   no law   against',
if,  but. no  one   will   buy,   for no one
knows  what  is going   to happen   next
I-Averyone   i.s simply   wailing,   fearful
for  the   unknown   terror  whose slow
hut   inevitable  approach   's felt. -"-':'���     |
"Think   what   it   means', for   ana- !
lion   of MO,000,000   to   be   trembling
on the Verge of   rev'olutic.n.' The spirit,   of uneasiness   and.  dread   is fe.U in
the    very  air.    W'lr.-.n   flic  revnlnLinn
once,   start.'-'   it will   sweep   out   ib;
country   like  n flame.   Condil'o 's   iV.'e
now very  sinvilar   to   those  in i'Vance
before     the  great,   revolution .there.   ,
Thc  great  difference   is  that  in those
days   Paris Was Fran-re;   what      w.-.s
done  in   Pan's   was accepted   by      the
whole     country,    f f SI. , T'efersbj'.rg
were   Russia,  the  revolution - would
now bo   an accomplished   fact.     'But  '
the very   fact   that-Hussia  has  M0,-
000,000  people  makes  the  movement
slow.   Few people realize that    the I
aiea of European Russia is one-third
of the area of all Europe, and that
Russia controls one-seventh' of aU
the land on the globe.
"Broadly  speaking,   there  are four
great  organizations     working       Tor
changes.    The   most   moderate       is
called  the  Self Defense  League,   and
its members     work    for  what  their
name    implies.  .   Next there is  the
Bund,   which   in  German  means   union.    The  Bund   is composed  almost,
entirely     of Jews,     who   are social
democrats!      They   have'much       to
work- fori    from a racial standpoint,
but arc    als0 active in all national
issues.    The   Jews,   you  know,    are
confined   to  what  is called   the  'pale
of settlement,'   and  the 'pale' includes on""1 five  or six provinces.       The
aw  forbids  more than  10   per cent,
of the  Jews in   the pale' from  having'
an education.    A limited number,   by
special   permission,   arc allowed      to
live outside of the pale, and among
thciii only three per cent,  are allowed  an  education.
"There are between 0,000,000   anil
7,000,000  Jews  in Russia-
"Besides  the  Self  Defense  League
and the    Bund .there are two large
organizations, called the Social Democrats and Revolutionary Russia. All
of these  organizations  publish  newspapers.   In  fact,   there are  more proscribed   paiiers  published   in  Russia*
I ban  there arc those that have  the
government  saction.   The  proscribed
newspapers comprise what' we     call
the    'underground   press.'.They   arc
all  publisher!  sccretely, and  distributed no one knows how.   Tb be caught

10    Siberia.      They are  printed  on
a very  thin  paper,  like  that used in
.making  cigarettes.   A secret  newspaper can casJly be hidden in the palm
of a man's   hand,   but  when   unfolded
it  is sometimes    a.yard   or _,  "more
"No  niatlcr  what  the  newspapers
may say, Wi tie's power has been in-
cicnseil   tenfold  by  what  he has accomplished  at Portsmouth. Russians
arc very much like other people.  Let
a man .stay' at home ,and   little       is
thought-of  hfpi.    Let him go abroad
and get bis name in the papers,  and
he at once becomes  the centre of all
eyes.   The very fact that lie      has"
been so loudly heralded as a'successful diplomat  by  all thc  newspapers
will  bring him  great'power with the
people even  though in official circles
he should   not  receive  great  favor.-
"But you may depend jipon it that
he will be shown oflieial favors. He
was sent over here to stop the war
at any cost, and be has done so.
More, he has succeeded in g'ossing
the peace terms over with a veneer'
of successful   diplomacy.
"Russia could   no longer get  nicn.
fo  send   to   Manchuria.   The  recruits
tbit   were forced   to  go wife locked
in the cars, anrl their  wives .and children   threw  themselves  under *-   the
train' wheels as it passed.   The  war
lias been fought almost entirely with
raw   recruits,    'lhe cream  of   the army   has been  kept at home to  "quell
public  disturbances.   The- Czar    did
not   dare   to send   them   0,000   miles
away  and remain  unprotected.
"One feature of Russian law. that
i'b not generally  known to Americans
is thai,  capital   punishment  docs not
exist    -except   for political   offencis1.
Murder   is merely   punished   by   banishment, hut let a man commit a political crime from the  murder of an
official   down,  and his life is   worth
