LOCO 'TELEPHONE.
Edward Rowe, a resident 'of Indiana, I'a., has invented, a new system
of train operation by means of a
telephone working in such a way as
to keep tlie train in touch with tlic
".dock" ollice, ami through that of-
licc with tlie division dispatcher. In
addition to this, the electric connection operates as an "Indicator"
which shows the position ol the.train
as it completes each, one-four ih mile
ol its trip over tlie block.
Thc system has been tested and examination ol its workings willl be
made by operating ollicials ul tlic
I ...iiisylvania railroad. The tests'
have been made tin .he Indiana
branch of the West Peiin division,
and local ollicials have kept in dose
touch with thc experiments.
Orcater salcty' at comparatively
small cost, especially for single track
railroads, and simplicity of equipment, are thc .chief 'advaiitul^s claim.

curs to sell Bibles in towns and'vil-

in objecting to colporteurs traversing thc disturbed rural districts ol
European Turkey, on the pretext
that the r safety cannot be guaranteed alid also to the sale ol Bibles
in sonic of tlle provinces in Asiatic
Turkey, fearing that colporteurs may

CORNER THE
BREADSTUFFS
PANAMA CANAL.
Phillippc Bunau-Varilln, who, tie-
tore being minister of Panama to
Washington was the principal engineer ot thc Panama canal, gives an
authorized interview relative to the
building ot the canal at sea level.
According to M. Bunau-Varilla, the
construction of the canal at sea level is not only possible, but it must
ultimately lie so constructed, as are
other connections between oceans,
like the straits of Bosphcrous, between the Black sea anil the Egcan
sea. Asked if tlic Panama canal
ought to be constructed at once at
sea level,   M.   Bunau-Varilla replied:
"Not at all. To heat perfect sea
level the canal must be free from any
artificial work; ami there is perhaps
no engineer'who would lie willing lo
accept the responsibility of building
it immediately without dams on the
upper Chagrcs lo regulate theilaods
and without tide locks at'.Panama to
counteract tlic canal currents duo to
Ihe ten-toot tide from the Pacific.
"The notion of a free discharge
from tlie Cbagres in a luckless sea
level canal must result from experience which would be acquired by
''working a lock canal with a central
lake, such as that I devised in 1802,
and which was adopted by the lstlt.
Blniian canal commission in 1001. The
ij construct ion of such a cabal would
give experimental data about the necessary cross section ot thc canal,
about tlic slopes of the deep cut of
Culcbra and about the sediments of
the Cbagres, all of which arc essential for building at a sea level] cs-
sagcr successfully.
"As to changing from 'he leek to
the sea level form, I gave in 1-87
a solution which I communicated recently to Admiral Walker. It is an
easy, practical and cheap icthod ol
gradually transferring the :_ck canal into    a sea    level canal without
PRACTICAL EDUCATION.
The big university at Birmingham
will soon be an accomplished lact.
Few people know ot the establishment of this gigantic technical university at Boiirnehrook, a suburb of
Birmingham. Five or six years,ago,
owing to the energy and public spirit of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, thc
idea ot a great local technichl school
began to take shape in thc minds of
the people and today there arc thirty
a'.'-cs covered with the buildings, laboratories, workshops, machine shops
lecture halls, etc., which go to comprise the university.. Wnen the whole
scheme is completed the establishment of Ibis big school will have
cost £3,000,000.. One ot the great
features of this great Birmingham
University is a model mine, which is
situated in the south-east portion of
Boiirnc.i-'ook site. It is, now approach
ing completion, and occupies nca/ly
an acre of ground. It will tie used
tor exper mental research, and for the
purposes of practical education. , The
workings of a coal mine have been
chosen as a model so that thc students may thoroughly understand the
problems of underground transport
and winding; ol local and gcMral
ventilation; ot the prevention ol accidents from explosions of gas am.
coal dust; of timbering methods of
loose ground, and under heavy pressure, and ol the laying out of underground workings to the liest advantage.

THE LUMBER QUESTION
The closing down ol the Ladysmith
Lumlier Go's mill brings homo locally
what is happening throughout the
province at the present time. Mill
alter mill is- closing its doors temporarily and the same reason is given by all, that the opening ot Mani
tdba.and thc Territories to tree lumber from the United States makes
it impossible for the British Columbia mills to ship into the market.
The situation from the' standpoint of
the lumbermen, was set forth as far
hack as last May in a circular letter to the people of British Collin,
bia. It was pointed out in that
letter that the Pacific Coast m Ils
ol the United States werc using! Canada as a dumping ground tor rough
lumlier. The large and profitable
market that the United States lumbermen enjoys in his own country lor
the upper girades cnnlijcs. him to
ship this rough lumber free of duty
into Canada and sell it below cost.
At tllc last session ol parliament
an attempt wns made to have a duty
imposed on this rough lumber which
includes that planed on one side,
but there was such a strong opposition to the measure (although a
great difference ot opinion existed
among thc Li|,.ral members) that
nothing was done.- Shingles arc also
on the tree list, but on account ol
the superior tfualily ol the British
Columbia article the situation is not
so serious in regard to that product
as it is in reference to thc rough
lumber. As a matter ol lact wc in
Canada arc handicapped In our lumber trade by thc restrictions undor
which wc labor as eomparcd with thc
United States. The United States
millman not only has his own large
market, but he can ship this rough
product into Canada as a slaughter
market, while the British Columbia
lumberman is confined to the Canadian side, a duty ol $2 a thousand on
rough lumber preventing any attempt
to compete in thc United States. II
there was not such a duly, there
might he some reason lor allowing
our neighbors tn ship in, as all par-
t cs would then be on an e_|ual looting. It Is not lair on thc lace ot it,
however, lor Canadians to give outsiders privileges in trade which are
not reciprocated. It is all very well
to say that tlic present closing down
ul the mills is merely an attempt to
torce the Ottawa government lo take
some action, a "blutl" as It is commonly called. It certainly is no
bluff to the workmen who arc laid
off when the mills close. The seventy hands, hail of tlictn while men,
who are now out ol employment be.
cause the mill at Fidilick's has closed, must look on It as something
very murh different to tliat.
The situation is undo_)iiledly serious and will have a very detrlmen.

closing,of mills means thc purchasing

Not many ol us, il asked how many
Canadians have been made members
of His Majesty's Privy council, could
guess anywhere near the mark, and

o
honored, the Sphinx would be as
communicative as most people. As a
matitor of fact, only Ihe Canadians
have yet attained this dignity. Tho
appointments. are: Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir John Ross, appointed in
188(1; Sir John S. D. Thompson, in
18113; Sir Samuel Harry Strong, in
1807 and Sir Wilfrid Laurier also in
18(17, and Sir Richard Cartwright in
1IH14.
Prior to 1801 no Canadian had been
raised to the peerage. In that year
Lady Macdonald was made a baroness in her Own right. Since then
three Canadians have been made
peers—Buron Mount Stephen, Baron
Ktralhcona and Mount Royal, and
Baron Mali burton. Baronetcies have
been conlerred on Sir Geongc Cartier
and Sir Charles Tupper, while Sir
William Rose, Sir John Beverly Robinson and Sir E. A. Stuart tell aeir
to baronetcies conferred belore the
Conlederation. The only gentleman
who lor services distinctly Canadian
has been raised to a Knight llram!
Cross o! the Order ol rhe Bath was
Sir John A. Macdonald. G.C.M.O.'s
have been conlerred on Sir A. T.
(iu.lt, Sir John Rose, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, Sir Charles Tupper, Sir
Richard Cartwright and .Sir Oliver
Mowat, who is the only member of a
provincial ministry who, while an
executive councillor, has receded «iny
such Imperial honor since Conlederation.
Down to this point titular honois
have been distributed sparingly en-
oii'gli in Canada, tyit there is a greater number of Knight Commanders of
thc Order ol St. Michael and St
George. Altogether since Jon'edcra-
tion 31 K.C.M.G.'s have been granted. Sixteen of these have been elided in thc last eight years. The Rev.
Robert Machray, D.D., Primate ol
Canada, was a prelate ol the Order
ol St. Michael and St. George. OI
the lower but more ancient order ot
knighthood, Knights Bachelors, thirty-three (not including Sir Gilbert
Parker, M.P.,) have been created
since Conlederation, ol ilcli twelve
were created in the last ght yccrs.
Tills is a favorite method rl lmnnr-
ingcliief justices. Thc Companionagc
ol tlic Bath (C.B.i), the 'bird 'us. of
the order, was conferred once in 1807
nnd not again until the distribution

was conlerred on Col! Drury, (nl.

Col. Steele. OI C.M.O.'S, tho third

SEA DEEPER.
The phenomenon of the changes in
the level ml the sea is one which is
well shown iu the case ot thc Mediterranean. M. Ph. Ncgris, in a recent
brochure perst'tiled lo the Academy or

ABOUT MATCHES.
They were sitting at the J,able, the
scltncr bottle between'them.     One
reached out and took five or,six matches Irom the box the waiter     had
brought and stuck > them  into    his
vest pocket.   Then, catching a glance
ol thc box itself, he threw all     tlie
matches on the'floor, with an annoyed' "Conlound it!   The blamed things
don't strike except on the box,   and
I'd be in a pretty fix trying to strike
alight     in a dark hall with '.cm!"
The    other took y.ic out ol the box
with a superior air.    "I can't guarantee you can use them successfully
in a dark hall," he remarked, "but I
can show you how to circumvent thc
shrewd precautions ol the man that
invented this little scheme to keep
people Irom packing away too many
matches.   For a long time alter they
began to use this sort o! a match, at
most ol the public places I was constantly finding myself with a supply
ol the non-strikablc except on the box
outrages that I had casually picked
up in my pockets.   'Oh, if I could
only find some scheme to make  you
light, and thus get even lor the endless annoyance you have caused me!
I often thought.   Finally, I solved
the mystery.    One night I was idly
striking one against a seltzer bottle
while talking with a friend, when it
ignited.   I looked caretully at    the
box;  it was the non-strikable kind.
An unholy joy possessed me.   I  had
triumphed at last—by accident, it is
true, but still triumphed.   I found later you could strike them as well on
a window pane.  Since then I    have
felt a pain on encountering any except this variety ol match—and    si
will you after you realize the lull
joy ol breaking down one of the irritating precautions ol human ingenuity."  The first man r .ached a Iricnd-
ly hand across the talblc to shake. He
too, had lelt that way about It.

closed has been probably trlic most
profitable onc to ship underwriters
in the history ol that business on
the great lakes. Vessel owners,
who carried no insurance were equal
ly fortunate, the dangers of lake navigation reaching the lowest point
since boats sailed the lakes. This
showing is due to freedom from

NO PLACE FOR DIGNITY._
A pompous individual Irom the east
says a Texas newspaper, happened to
be traveling in western Texas, and
stopping at a hotel, when trouble
started among some cowboys, who
prepared to conduct the argument
with revolvers.
"Stranger," said a Texan to the
pompous man, "it would be a good
ideo lor you to lay down on the
lloor till this dispute is settled."
"It does not comport with the dignity of a Boston gentleman ol my
prolession," said tne pompous gentleman, "to wallow .in the dirt on
llie floor." '
"You may be right, stranger," answered the Texan, "but my opinion
is that you had better lose your dignity for the time bein' than to have
the daylights let into your system
with a '44."
Kate—That young man Irom Baltimore is tiresome enough, heavens
knows, but once or twice I have
thought that alter alt he isn't so
stupid as he seems.
Mlldred-Pofsibly he isn't. I have
noticed myself that there have been
times when he has shown almost lui-
man intelligence.

HE HAD MANY SISTERS.
In a certain home in West Locust
street there is a little girl who    is
just at the age when she. tries to absorb everything she hears, and as   a .
result she makes many lunny blund-,

herself.
One    day at breakfast her father
and mother were discussing bloorl re-'
lations antl thc little girl sat in silence, literally drinking in-every word
they said.
Later in the day her. brother asked
her to do an errand lor him and she
refused.
"Oh. aU right," said the brother,
