In this  copy you will see that vaccination is  now. compulsory in British Columbia,  and that ; municipalities throughout  the Province are asked to take steps  to put it into force- This, I trust,  will be done without delay,  Yours faithfully,  C.  J. FAG AN, Secretary.  The regulations referred to were  adopted by the Provincial Board ol  Health and approved by His Honor  the Lieutenant-Governor in Council,  Jan. 31st, -.1911. They, are entitled,.  "Regulations "for the prevention -of  -the;.spread of- small pox to and" in  British Columbia."   -  If the citizens of these inland communities would stand together on  this question as the people of Oakland, Cal., did a few years ago, it  would not need to cause alarm to  anyone. The medical board of Oakland secured the passage of a compulsory vaccination law, which made  it necessary for the school children  to be vaccinated or "- be deprived of  the privilege of the public school. In  the twinkle of an eye, as it were, the  parents solved the problem. They  kept the children at ��������������������������� home, and the  attendance dwindled to. a .whisper until the school'board got its head.  There are thousands "of people-right  in this Province who would have -to  be tied down like ��������������������������� bullocks , at .the"  branding- before they would permit  vaccine poisoning to be- injected -or  inoculated into "them���������������������������and we believe  some of them .live in "Enderby dis-  ; 1 trict.'

If this attempt meets with  ��������������������������� the same passive resistance that the  previous effort met with, it will be  as abortive    as   it    deserves   to be.  Because of an additional smallpox  case or two, perhaps in the filthy  quarters in the coast cities, this law  is brought forward and an effort  made to compel its enforcement. And  the cost of its enforcement is put upon the struggling municipalities in  the Province.  Because another Chinaman more or  less at the coast is discovered ill  with smallpox, the Medical Board  flies to the Government and demands  the enforcement of a law that means  the carrying of sickness into every  home in the Province, and perhaps  the maiming of little children if not  death���������������������������and mind you, in communities  hundreds of miles away from any  point where smallpox ever has existed.  commissioners.

"Stand buck, or J' will kill you!'*  ".Something must, be done,'' said Rice  lo Snyder. "Wo must overpower him!"  Hopkins overheard him, and if he had  Dceii a madman before, he was a raging  beast now. "So,"' he howled, "you  would use force. But you shan't! No,  I defy you! Come on, come on, overpower me, if you will. Vou can���������������������������you  arc four to one. But it will do you no  good. For see���������������������������see. J destroy the secret. ''  Before his dumbfounded spectators  jould divine his purpose, he lowered the  - graduating glass to his lips and drank  the contents at one gulp. For a second  or two he stood there, one hand clutch-  " ing the door of the cupboard to give  himself support. At first there was a  aiocking smile on his lips, but it gave  tray to a look of exquisite agony. His  face turned livid, his eyes rolled upward, he gasped and swayed. They saw  bis muscles stiffen], his lips twitch, and  then with a moan, he fell to the floor  with a crash, hurling the glass to bits  igainsfc the wall with the last movement of his arm.  Fischer, who during all this had remained od the floor, unable to move,  scrambled to his feet, forgetful of  bniises, and rushed to the side of the  prostrate Hopkins. The others, roused  from the stupor into which this tragedy  had thrown them, joined the German  professor in lifting the inert body to  the table. Rice seized a wrist, while  Gordon put Lis ear to the man's heart.  - Fear predominated in tho questioning  !*oks which they, threw at each other.  Fischer caught up a bottle of ammonia  md began applying it to the unconscious man's nostrils. Snyder hurried  nervously about for water. For five of  the longest minutes in their lives they  labored   to   resuscitate    the    victim   of  ' yf their unfortunate espionage.  "Rice broke the. awful silence.  ''Gentlemen," he said/'in a whisper  "iat was scarcely audible, "I am afraid  ���������������������������'hat our efforts are useless."  "He is not���������������������������dead?" .gasped Gordon.  "He is," said Fischer.    And ho raised  the  white  hand  that  ho  had  been  Holding  in   his  and   laid   it   reverently  -icross  the  breast  of  the. man ;on  the  table.    They -looked at each  other  in  terror.'   It  is   one  thing  to  destroy  a  , -man's reputation, it is another thing to  kill   the   man   himself.    Yes,  kill;   for  they eould not help thinking that they  ?rere directly responsive  for Hopkins'  niicide.  For a moment there was not a sound  hnt  the breathing of the guilty quartette.    Then footsteps were heard.    In  i sudden frenzy of fear Snyder reached  Tp to the electric light button that depended near him, and pressed it.    The  laboratory  was  plunged  into darkness.  The   footsteps  came   nearer   along   the  bnll, aud stopped at the laboratory door.  \ band tried the knob, and a voice called:    "  "Professor!   Professor Hopkins!"'  Rice, standing next to Gordon, felt a  ������������������p:ismodic    movement    of    tho    young  - jnan's body as the voice reached them,  silently he clutched at Gordon's sleeve.  i.itd then the voice came again:  "Professor, let me in: it is Ernesta.'"

Then came the sound  jf   footsteps" retreating   as   though   the  ,/irl  had  concluded   that  the  professor  bad  none.  It  scorned   hours  before  any of  the  nen  standing there  in  the  inky darkies? dared  to loose his voice.    Finally  -?tsch.-r-mad.;- bt.M_ enough to. whisper.  "She is gone!

Thc open doors of the cup-  ward suggested a temporary hiding-  Mace. Thoy put the limp form of Pro-  "es������������������or Hopkins in the cupboard, lock-  it g the  doors.  ���������������������������'Let's h'avo it thore for now," said  i'we, "until we can decide on some  dorv as to how ho met his death.

"Let us adjourn to Profes-  or Snyder's room to tuJk it over."  Raibmg the ladder, auydor went out  be way that they had all come iu. The  .ihurs unlocked- the door aud went out  hat way, Rico locking the door after  bem.    ill Snyder's room they gathered.  CHAPTER V.  "The Light in the Cupboard  "There is one matter ot' extreme importance,"  said  Rice, when  it seemed  is   though   his  companions  were   in   a  rame oi mind to receive the suggestion  .iihnly.    "Was that Ernesta Frost who  ried the door and called Professor Hopkins' name?"  ������������������������������������������������������She said so," was Snyder's com-  nent. "' lt is I���������������������������Ernesta",' were her  vords."  "Still " began Rice; but Fischer  nterrupted, saying:  " Home, come, Kice; ve know dat you  kre mathematically inclined; very goot.  ,t pays to insist on proof before arriv-  ng at conclusions, and ve vould haf  been better off if ve had vaited. But  let us not split straws. Dot vos Ernesta Frost for all practical purposes.  Admitting dat, vat?"  "That being the case," went on  Rice, acquiescent though not humbled,  "and we saw her, or her shadow, with  Hopkins in the laboratory only fifteen  minutes previous to that, she could not  have been very far away while���������������������������while  matters were going on. We must in  some way discover if sho heard what  transpired in the room between us and  Hopkins."  "fie certainly spoke loud enough,"  said Snyder, shuddering at. the recollection of their victim's tirade.  "And yet," said Rice, "if she had  heard him she would scarcely have gone  away without making furthor inquiry  than she did. I believe that she came  back to ask him something which she  had forgotten during the evening. Receiving no answer to her call, undoubtedly she returned home, to wait until  to-morrow morning.''  "Veil?" asked Fischer impatiently.  "A person hearing Hopkin's unjust  denunciation of our' purpose might naturally have thought that we were there  to offer him violence. In such a case  it would bo most difficult to arrange au  explanation of his death. -If, however,  there was no witness to the scene, we  have an opportunity to deny all knowledge, of the. affair"; unless, of course,  you gentlemen wish to have the actual  truth become known."  "No!" camo. in" uuisou from Fischer,  Gordon and Snyder. Rice could .not  help smiling at the rapidity with which  his companions had changed from absolutely honorable men to persons of  criminal bent. For it was a criminal  bent that permitted them even to consider the expediency of trying to hide  all connection with Hopkins' death.  Had tho case been put to them hy-  pothetically, a day previous, there was  not one who would not have counselled  a clean breast with assurance that it  always pays to tell the truth. Vet now.  confronted with an actual condition,  they were.all for subterfuge in preference to straightforwardness.

The others heard a woman's voice say.  ���������������������������'Oh, excuse me, Professor.������������������������������������������������������ I didn't  know anyone was in there. I was jusi  goin' to clean  the  room."  They gave a sigh of relief, for thc  speaker was nobody but Mrs. Harms,  die scrub woman who customarily made  her rounds of the building at this houi  of the evening, But they wore iu no  condition for a fresh shock, as eould be  seeu by the way they trembled as they  resumed their scats.  The scrub woman's presence in the  building reminded them that quick action was necessary if they were to  decide on a course of procedure thai  night. Rice, as usual, became spokesman   for  their  sentiments.  "Gentlemen," he said,-for the first  time showing impatience, "we must ai  rive at a conclusion. What are we  going to do and say in this matter?  Gome; has nobody a suggestion but  me?"  "I have," said Fischer, "and it iss  dis. Der body/vill haf to be discovered  in der morning, anyvay. Our presence  in der building to-night is already  known at least to der voman. Dere is=  no vay ve could demand silence on hei  part mitout arousing suspicion.

Ve  found der door of dot room open, and  inside on der floor lay der bodv. Dat  iss'all."  "Whereupon," said Rice, falling into  Fischer's manner of phraseology, "we  sound the alarm, and our story is accepted."  "Dat iss it," said Fischer, Turning  to Gordon and Snyder, who remained  silent, he asked, "Vot do you gentlemen tink of dat plan?"  Before either could reply an unearthly shriek rang" through the building.  The four professors were on their feet,  stiff with terror. Again theshiek rang  out. It. came unmistakably from the  second floor. This time there eould be  but one interpretation. Ernesta Frost,  returning again, had found Professor  Hopkins' body, and was forestalling  the conspirators in giving the alarm.  At breathless speed .the four men dashed from Snyder's room" and up the  stairs, tho screams continuing all the  while. They found the laboratory door,  which tney had locked, wide open.  Rushing in, they found, not Ernesta,  but Mrs. Harms, backed up against the  wall, still uttering ear-piercing shrieks.  Fischer flew at her, and clapped one  hand over her mouth, while with the  other he 'supported her, for she would  have fallen from fear.  A fresn terror seized the guilty four,  What had the scrub woman seen? How  would she accuse them? A cry from  Gordon drew their gaze in the direction  of tho cupboard in the further end of  the room.  In the gloom a strange, penetrating,  whitish light emanated from thc doors  of the cupboard in which the body was  concealed!  "It's only some chemicals," faltered  Rice to Ihe scrub woman. "For heaven's sake  be  still!"  "Chemicals!_"_she  repoated. ['_[���������������������������I  thought���������������������������I   thought  tion from one of the group; nevertheless, ho listened attentively for the  answer.  "Probably at home, working out  <ome "of old floppy's chemical oxperi-  nents," said another student,   "  "I don't see what Ernesta sees in  that stuff," was the comment of a  .bird, a girl. "She's either up at the  laboratory or in her room working nil  iho time."  "I guess floppy pays her for hor  work," suggested another,  "Perhaps she's trying to learn a lot  ���������������������������io she cau help Professor Gordon when  they-get married,"' said a-young man;  whereupon  the  girls  tittered.  The group scattered and went in  various directions. The detective foi  lowed two of its most loquacious mem  bcrs, hoping that he would hear more  concerning Ernesta, but he was disappointed. The students turned into a  dormitory at the foot of College Hill  without, further comment on the young  woman.  But Sullivan had heard something  that surprised him.  "When she and Professor Gordon are  married," one of the students had said.  So there was another complication, a  love affair, possibly an engagement, be  tween the girl and one of the faculty.  Mrs.-Hopkins had told him nothing ol  this; doubtless she did not know of it.  But if it existed, what about the elopement with Professor Hopkins?  The detective had left the Hopkins-  house well pleased with himself at having so easily, by the mere turning of a  photograph, discover the identity of the  girl. He had made a plausible excuse  for a young woman, more than ordinarily prepossessing, being attracted by  a middle-aged college professor of high  mental attainments. But now it seemed  that Hopkins was not the������������������only college  professor to have attracted Ernesta.  There was Gordon.   Who was Gordon?  A matter easily discovered, thought  Sullivan, as he mounted the elm-lined  road leading to the college. Of course,  he could find that out in the morning,  ;ind, perhaps, if he were to approach  Professor '-Gordon . very carefully he  might learn of a quarrel between him  and Ernesta. Perhaps the fact of her  disappearance with Hopkins was tbe  -esult of suddeu pique. '���������������������������  "If the old fool was careless enough  to leave that note where his wife could  find it," he commented, "who knows  but maybe he has left something around  his laboratory that will give me the tip  as to where, they have gone. If the  college isn't carefully guarded,- and 1  can find his laboratory in the dark, I  mav bo able to turn a little-trick tonight."  ���������������������������   (To be  continued)  "What?" demanded Gordon, half  afraid to hear her answer.  "I���������������������������I don't, know," said the woman.  "But T wish Professor Hopkins wouldn't leave such things around to frighten  a poor woman! "  "It's nothing," said Rice. "But a?  it seems to have unnerved you, perhaps you had better go. Wo will lock  the   door   and   see   that   everything   i.-  all light.".    _     .      ..'  _  He half pushed the woman from tho  room and  escorted her downstairs,  Only when he had heard her go out  at the front door r.f the College did he  return to the shuddering trio on the  threshold of tho laboratory.

' *        ir        ������������������  Starting a motor after it has been  standing out in the cold for a few hours,  or in a cold garage over night, is no  joke; and a t\-w hints on how to start  with ihe least amount of cranking will  no" doubt be "appreciated by "many! "Perhaps tho best way to get a motor started is to wrap a bunch of waste loosely  in a cloth, saturate it with ganolino.  put a half-teaspoonfnl of gasoline in  each cylinder, turn on the ignition aed  crank the motor, As soon as it starts,  run around and cuefully place the. sat  united waslo and cloth near the air intake of the carbureter so that as thc  motor begins to slow down it may be  brought still closer and a combustible  mixture be thus formed until the car  bureter begins to carburet. Should this  fail, .sinply remember the old adage.  "If at. firiH you don't succeed, try, try  again," and when the motor has become  su flic ion tly warm it will keep on running without the necessity of holding  she saturated waste and cloth near the  air-intake of the carburetor.  It is recommended that if the intake  manifold of the motor be tapped jusi  above the carbureter, and connection-bo  made with the acetylene gas tank, a  cold motor can be readily started aiid  run on acetylene gas until the carbureter begins to deliver a suitable mixture.  Another way is to have a long piece of  rubber hose which can be attached al  one end to one of the lamp leads, or  direct to the gas tank, and the other  end stuck into the air-inlet-of the carbureter; the gas can then be turned on  and a combustible mixture formed in  this way until the carbureter is brought  into use. It is not universally known  that there is more than one grade of  gasoline on the market, and that with  fho better grades a motor can be much  more readily started than when a poorer  grade of fuel is employed, it in possible'  by special order to obtain gauoliuG from  the oil manufacturers that, tests about  u'S degrees Beaume to 00 degrees Fek-  renheit, and which vaporizes very muck  more readily than the fuel generally obtainable from the garage or tank wagon,.  The fuel generally supplied teste around  titi degrees Beaume at the normal temperature of 00 degrees Fahrenheit, and  is just_ as'suitable as a fuel after the  motor is warmed up and under ordinary  running conditions as the more volatil*  and expensive gasoline.  ������������������    ������������������    >  There is a provuiliiig idea in ths  minds of many motorists that in a motor  wilh -a circulating oiling system, in  which the lubricant is used over and  over again, that as long as the propor  level is maintained in the crankcase the  motor is being properly lubricated, li  even is claimed by the selling representatives of some motor car maunfactur  ing companies, that owing to the construction of tho motors in the cars  which they sell, leakage of oil from th������������������  crankshaft ends is entirely eliminated  and their cars can run several thousand  miles without tho necessity of replenishing the oil supply in the crankcase,  Tt is true there are motors in ears which  under favorable conditions can run ������������������  couple of thousand, or perhaps oven  several thousand miles, without reducing the level in the crankcase to :sn^  considerable extent, and a slight replo'n-  ishmerit would permit or' a couple of  thousand more miles of travel; but th.a  bearings of the motor must by thia  time be in sore need of repair aad nd  justuient.  It Is not only necessary that thc proper supply be maintained in the oil reservoir of a motor, but it is even more  important- that the proper lubricating  constituency of the oil be sustained and  not impaired by the accumulation of  solid particles of carbon. Jt is a woM  .known fact that after the oil that i������������������  used in a circulating oiling system has  been on the job, so to speak, for a reasonable leaigth of time it begins to lose  its clear aspect and take ou a murkj  color which, if ignored, in time becomes -  black. And .if when this blaek oil h  drained from the caso, one were to allow some of it to run onto thc forefinger it would be very thin and not  very oily; and should it be mbbe.d between tho finger and the thumb it would  be found to contain a powdery, gritt/ '  substance decidedly not good for healings.  ' The requirements of a suitablo lubri-.  cant for circulating oiling systems ar*  that ,it  be  of a  proper consistency t������������������ -  feed well with the lubricating "arrange-"-  meuts and under the'temperature conditions  required;, of-such   visco������������������ity   ;mi  oiliness a������������������ to reduce, friotion to a. roini-;-  imun, and contain a miiiiiitnm amount of  cons^jtBcnts prejudicial to its' s'uitainei*  effocv.^  From  tlio  above  statements  it  may be seen that, when an oil has been  used  for too long a time it  will  have  lost in oue-of its most esaontial require-'  meuts,  its viscosity, "and  taken   ������������������,/i ��������������������������� :vn ���������������������������  excessive'amount of what is referred <���������������������������  ns   a   prejudicial   constituent,' granulat  carbon.    The  viscosity of an oil  is if.*  disposition to be creamy; it ia a nam*  applied to the internal frictiou betwecj  the globules which restricts its fluidity,  and when it is stated that an oil has Jo.������������������ji  its viscosity, one is to infer that it ha*  lost its original creamy composition aud .  become more like skim milk.   The fat o;  grease  globules  in  an  oil  arc the  elements that keep the lubricated surface?  sufficiently   apart   to   prevent   rubbing;  and when those oily elements are burui  in the cylinders of a motor a fine carbon deposit is formed.    Thus,'when a.d  or most of the oily contents of a lubricant are carbonized, it. ceases to.be an  effective lubricant and becomes Jiiorc ot  au  abrasive.  In order that a motor may be propw  ly lubrieafed the entire crankcase supply should be drained out and replaced  ���������������������������\vi1-li^1resh=oil^about"=oiie^r^"^ri&at}i^or==  more frequently, if tno car is doing continuous aud heavy duty, as when running under very muddy conditions, or  on the lower gears on rough or hilly  roads.for any length of time.

St pi  KNDERBY  PEESS AND WALKER'S  WEEKLY  i^ -  V.  I ���������������������������  FASHIONS   AND  FANCIES  HATS aud more hats! Every week sees new styles exhibited new materials aud new colors until the average  bra Lit grows faiilv dizzy trying to decide upon which  'eally is fhe smartest and most desirable model lo choose. Tt  is acknowledged that the hat is all important in a woman's  outfit and there must be a suitable hat for each and every  locasion if a strict adherence to the laws of fashion be contemplated, and each and every hat must be becoming and  distinctive. With these rules to follow it can readily be  understood that too much time and thought cannot be expended in quest of fashionable headgear.  Tho models arc so varied this year that it is more confus-  is laro-e as turkev wings encircle small turbans and toques or  ire massed together at the side of a medium size soft velvet  turban. Long stiff quills, black and white, made of velvet,  cloth and a few real feathers, are most effective, and are  used in"the hats made of cloth and satin, or satin and velvet,  ind the willow feathers, so exquisite iu detail and coloring  md so becomingly soft and grateful, trim the velvet hats  of medium size. A charming model of a rather stiff black  velvet hat of medium size"with a brim turned up at one side  is trimmed with a cluster of short willow feathers in bright  .-meraldVecn. The contrast of the feathers and hat is so  marked that it would excite attention at once, and then tho  hat is so becoming it is_ not to be wondered at that it is  i most popular model.  Flounces and fur are two most fashionable trimmings this  winter and are used separately and together. The flounces  are most effective .in coloring and of the finest workmanship.  The -silk and velvet flounces arc especially noticeable and  the colors most unusual. The rather flat, low crowned hat  of velvet and of beaver and velvet combined is a very smart  with the wreath of flowers around the crown, and the lack  of height in the trimmirg and hat gives a certain air of distinction and individuality that the more eccentric shapes  often lack. One point about "these hats which'- makes  them beloved by those to .whom they are becoming  is that they are not becoming to many faces and  never are dangerously popular in consequence. -They are  most deceptive in appearance, for only the initiated can recognize at a glance the master hand in their manufacture. So,  "     simple, they  require to be  most  carefully  while seemingly  .. ft  </V  Black Velvet Haf with Blue Bows -  u������������������������������������r than usual, to select.just" what is-,wanted. One moment  -largo hats aro declared absolutely the one aud only style; thc  ���������������������������ext,moment the small hat is-firmly stated to be correct  fashion, and there are so many of medium size, neither-large  tor small, that are extremely attractive and very smart. Tlio  picturesque str'o is much" in evidence, and while the fashion  m a dant'crous one for tho majority of women to follow blindly il, is" often most satisfactory, because it can be so distinctive and original. A soft mob cap of velvet with an  inside pleating of fine lace, a twist of satin ribbon around  -She crown and a bunch of tiny silk roses at one side is a  favorite model, one that hitherto has been associated more  svith fashions for children, but now is chosen lor grown  women There are some faces to which this hat is extremely  becoming; to others it is grotesque and most unbecoming  . Large hats are more oft.cn ou the picture order, but all  lar<'c bats are not picture hats. At thc. moment the large  bars are considered smartest for thc afternoon and evening,  ���������������������������vhile tho small and medium size arc relegated to the more  severe stvles of dress. For tho theatre hat, the hat to be  worn in a box at the theatre, the large hat continues to'be  HOW  A  TIGEIt WAS   CAPTURED  *TIIE interest of a community in the  JL    Malay Peninsula was lately excited   by   the  announcement   that   a  fine  tiger  had  been captured  in  a  pit  situated   in  a   Chinaman's garden.  The pit in which the tiger was caught  was circular, eleven feet deep, and three  feet in diameter, contracting slightly at  the bottom. It was dug in sandy clay,  and as the sides were clean-cut the tiger  was not able to escape by scrambling  out. The situation was on the margin  of a jungle forest, and the pit, along  with others, had been dug for tlie purpose of capturing wild pigs. These pits  were covered with thin sticks and grass  or leaves.  As soon as the owner of the pit into  which the tiger had fallen was aware of  his prize, he covered the mouth of the  pit with strong planks and at once looked around for a purchaser, who was soon  found. The sum of twenty-five pouuds  was paid for the tiger as it lay at the  bottom of the pit, and it afterward cost  fifty pounds to have him caged and conveyed to Singapore.  For nearly six days the captive lay in  tho pit, his captor feeding him very  sparingly in order to reduce his energy.  The operation of caging the beast was  intrusted to" six Malays, who, as a race,  are noted for their knoweldge of woodcraft and of the habits of animals.  Thc Malays went to work very cleverly.'- Every detail of their plan was ordered admirably, so that no accident  could occur. .        /  The first step was"\to rig up a strong  beam at a height of about nine feet over  the pit, and this was supported on well-  secured uprights, to which it was securely lashed with withes. > " .,  Next there were prepared two cylindrical baskets made of green rattan.  One of these baskets measured two feet  in diameter aud eight feet, in length.  The: other was' made just large enough  to be passed info the larger one, for the  purpose of giving additional strength  to the contrivance. One end of each  basket jwas left open, while the_ other  was closed with the exception of a hole  about three inches in diameter, the  use. of which will presently appear.  The smaller basket'" having been "j;  med into the larger one, the walls of  both were firmly lacevd together throughout with withes to obviate any chance  of slipping. -_ . - "  Finally two new-hemp ropes twoi and  three-quarter inches in circumference  were prepared with runniug nooses. As  soon as a few long poles had been cut  and prepared, with forks on'some of  them'and, pieces of wood lashed on  others to form hook's, the Malays -were  ready to take care of'thc tiger.   "V  The planks covering/the mouth of  the pit were'slightly separated to 'admit  of .the ropes and poles .being, passed  .down. The noose'of;-one of-the .ropes  was lowered 'upon the tiger's head, an  iiitrusion--\which he; resisted violently,  but by, skill ,and patience tlie-Malays  managed to get the noose "over, the  tiger's-head and around his neck. This  was effected -by manoeuvring his paws  and "mouth with the poles. ��������������������������� As" soon' as  the noose was in position-it-was drawn  tight'enough.to prevent its removal by  the'-prisohcr. The other .rope was theu  passed_ down and secured in a similar  manner. The operation-of .placing .the  two nooses around the neck of the beast  .occupied twenty-three minutes.  Tho ends of the ropes were then passed through"the cylindrical baskets. The  baskets wero placed mouth downward  over "the pit, and when all was secure  and ready the word to haul was giyen  and the tiger was drawn up head foremost' into the basket, which was, only  large enough to receive him, and thus  he was unable to struggle Avith "effectiveness. As soon as he was well into  the basket the whole was drawn up  and laid on its side, when the mouth of  thc basket was at once laced up, Jeav"  ing nothing but the tiger's tail4i>iolrurt-  ing. When all was fast the nooses  around his throat were slackened in order that the beast might breathe more  freely.    Tho basket was now slung on  am-  Are your hands   chapped,   cracked  or  sore ?    Have  you  M cold cracks "  which open and bleed whea the skin  is drawn tight?

Blue-black ink may be recognized a.s fresh up to the sixth day,  and in after years its iige may be told  when the blue provisional pigment has  aded and left only the black. The  blue coloring as time goes on is hardly  acted upon by reagents, but for a year  or two it is'. In fact, writing done  williin that time will at once diffuse if  treated with a fifty per cent, solution  of acetic acid, whereas when it is live  or six years old, diffusion, if it takes  place at all, is very slow and limited in  extent.  A still more useful reagent is a saturated solution of oxalic acid which causes the pigment of relatively fresh writing to give an immediate smudge, but  has very little if any effect on writing  six or eight years old.

Little, delegate from the Northern Okanagan Farmers' Institute to  the Central Institute convention held  at Victoria in January, we are permitted to give a summary of the  many resolutions adopted " by that  body 'in convention. The full text of  these resolutions will appear in the  annual report of the Institute work,  but this report may not .appear for  several months.  The great amount of work carried  to these Institute conventions by the  delegates from the local Institutes,  can only be judged after goingv fully  into the work of the committee on  resolutions. The object of this committee is to fill all "the requirements  of the delegates and at the same time,  to keep the number of resolutions  within the scope of reason, and to  ask for nothing that will have a tendency to cheapen the work they,do.  The resolution committee's work is  not easy. Nor is it easy for a delegate to get a resolution through the  convention. He must put up a fight  for it, and watch his p's and q's.  If a delegate brings in a resolution  which the committee deems unwise or  wide of the mark, they have a quiet;  way of poking fun at it and thus,  without killing it, keeping it from  occupying the time of the convention  in needless argument. Resolution 22,  by, Robson, c,was one of these resolutions. It requested "that in .viewof  the danger to stock through eating  stumping powder, that the Government be asked " to take steps to enforce the -marking . of boxes of same |  with warning, of its poisonous na?  ture.M ��������������������������� The committee did'not like  to turn' down the resolution, and so  reported it under the caption "Teaching Cows to "Read." When it came,  before the- convention its ludicrous  side was at once- apparent, and the  mover of it withdrew. it:v". ,<- '" _ -. ���������������������������_��������������������������� -J  : Mr. ���������������������������- Little was extremely fortunate  in carrying the resolutions entrusted  to him through' the convention. The  first, of these asked' the Government  to increase 'the'-bounty- on~"coyotes.  The next asked, the' Government /to.  have specimens ��������������������������� of .beneficial, and injurious, insects -mounted .and .labelled  in; cases, same to be isBued to secretaries of the Farmers' Institutes  where asked for; said cases to be  placed'in-the schools ' or - some other  place of public resort." As, a rider to  this resolution it was asked that -the  Department of Educatian be communicated with in, order that instruction in entomology be given by  the aid of specimen cases containing  the bodies of the above, insects.  The request from the Mara delegate  that the Government be asked to get  out thc report of tlio annual meeting  earlier, was not put, the Hon. Minister of Agriculture explaining the  causes leading up to the delays in the  past, and stating that these causes  had now been removed aiid the report would therefore be issued at a  much earlier date hereafter. >  The resolution Mr. Little was instructed to put through, asking the  Government to devise a system of  uniform road construction, was lost,  Mr. Little, as a road overseer of 15  or 20 years experience,'not being able  to support the resolution with any  degree of strength. The resolution  asking the Government to bonus pure  bred stock was also lost.'  Wc would not attempt to give' the  resolutions passed at .the.- annual  meeting in toto, but here is "a sum-"  mary: r  The first complains of the freight  and express charges from Okanagan  points and the .Province in general,  to points in Alberta, and asks some  action to be taken to give the fruit  growers a fairer proportion of a return.

Also power to transfer any existing  water records granted for water for  any of the lands that will be taken  in by the municipality to the municipality for their general-purpose.  In cases where streams rising in the  railway belt are diverted from their  proper watersheds for irrigation purposes, ' the Government, is asked to  take steps to protect the record owners on those streams.  More government telegraph lines  are asked for; the Government is  asked to put a stop to the importation of weed seeds as a feed; closer  inspection of fruit coming into the  province' from eastern points and  from the south; and the attention of  the Dominion Government is called to  the fact that ten cars of apples came  here this fall without any .marks to.  show the grower or where 'they were  grown or the-grade of same.. , '"��������������������������� '  ' The.

Many are  completely hidden away Ln> tho  depths of mountain ranges, some to remain unknown, doubtless, while this old  earth shall last; others to be suddenly  brought to light by man iu some of his  puny diggings. The excavations for  mines and for railways occasionally  meet with them. An adventure of this  kind recently reported from Italy is  thus described by a writer in La Nature  (Paris)-  "Ou a new railroad line to connect  Rome and Naples a tunnel to be four  and a half miles long is being driven  under Mount Orso, near Sonnino. On  May 11 last, at about a mile and a half  from the northern entrance (on the "Roman rside) a ��������������������������� blast in tho advance gallery "suddenly opened a passage into a  huge natural nit. Several of the work-  iuenv> narrowly escaped falling into it.  It is a deep rift, somewhat inclined'and  apparently descending to sc������������������le\cl; It  is about 200 feet wide and the gallery  meets it somewhat; on one side. Pis-  sures abound in the rocks of .Mount Orso  and other .similar encounters are to be  feared.  "This is not the first case of the  kind; the Speedwell mine in Derbyshire,  England, intersected in the same way  ii rift 300 feet deep; under the Larzac  Mountain the railroad from Tourcniire  to Vigau crosses wide fissures; two tunnels between ,Brivo and Cahors have  broken into caves, and other examples  are not rare. What is rather surprising  is that this does not happen oftcner in  fissured regions and among lime-  stono rocks tarversed by subterranean  streams.  "The size of the Mount Orso fissure  will probably interfere considerably  with the work; it will be necessary to  go1 around'the cavity in order to work  011 the other side. There is talk of filling up the hole itself, but it would be  imprudent to.do it before exploring it's  depths to find out whether" there may  not be direct or indirect connection  with some underground watercourse. Tf  such a flow exists, its erosive" action  would sooner or later undermine the  filling, which might cave in and cause  a serious accident. Tn any case, this  event shows once more the necessity of  a thorough exploration of the ground,  where possible, before building a tun-  Del; the Simplon and the Lotschberg  have already proved this. This precaution will be particularly necessary in  rhe crossing of thn dura range, if the  plan of constructing a long tunnel there  is to be carried out."  Captain David Shaw of Cleveland.  Ohio, paid just $1,000 for Grace (2.0S).  tho three-year-old filly that won the  Kentucky Futurity, and iu doing so  took the measure of Colorado K.  (2.04%). The captain will, surely have  no reason to> regret the investmonl,  for the filly woii him ten times the  purchase price, and is now worth many  thousands of dollars in tho open market.  The ]')10 campaign of The Abbe, 2.0*5,  owned by the Ideal Stock Farm, East  Aurora, NYY.. will go down in turf history as a most remarkable one.

Percy IBurnham has upset all calculations with the chestnut pader, St. Anthony, that wintered at Duxcrin Park  last year. "While there the local horsemen regarded the unsexed son of Bourbon Patcher somewhat of a "lemon,"  but Percy fooled them all, for the little  chestnut pacer has wou a good many  races during the season just closed, the  last being at Brockton. Mass., where he  won tho 2.12 pace ($500), in straight  heats in 2.J2, 2.12, 2.12%.  13. 1?.

The latter holds ihe  world's record for three heats on a half-  mile track on ice, made at Montreal,  winter before last, when she beat Merry  Widow and paced in 2.15, 2.1-1%, 2.15, a  record that will staud for many moons  without doubt.  .Enquirer is informed that the fastest  Canadian-bred pacer is Angus Pointer,  2.01% (dead).

One of the  most important of the now regulations  ia one by which thc four chief ollicials  of tke Household, namely, the Lord  Chamberlain, tho Master of the Household the Master of the llorso, and  the Lord Steward, will meet at regular  periods to confer ou the working of  tkeir respective departments, and to  settle questions which arc constantly  arising between them.  UiuleT the old regime, when the work  of, ������������������ay, the Master of the Horse's department brought that of'icial into conflict with the Lord Chamberlain's de-  partt-ic-ut, otiquette forbade a meeting  of tho two officials, and the question at  issno between them was referred to the  King's secretary for his Majesty's instructions on the matter.  Wliftii Lord Farquhar was reorganizing the late King's Household, he proposed such a scheme as has now been  adopted, but, for various reasons, it  was never carried out. The new arrangement will not only relieve the  King'i private secretaries' of a groat  deal of unnecessary work, but will much  expedite the work of the departments  concerned.  The number of Equerries and Lords-  m-Waiting iu residence is to be reduced, but the number of non-resident  Equerries who aro put on tho list in  rotation every fortnight for attendance  at tho Palace will be increased.

The registered lists of the Royal Warrant holders will now be carefully investigated and will be personally oxam-  ined by the King. There is no question  that there are-many bogus Royal Warrant holders, and it is a matter,of much  importance, both to thc public and to  the genuine warrant holders, that the  matter should be carefully investigated.  In the matter, by the way, of the  disposal of orders King George will not  be by any- means so liberal as was his  father.

SoYera.1 new regulations are pending  ia ������������������ov.Jiection with the work of the  Lord Chamberlain's department. Ono of  tho moat important of these deals with  the granting to societies aud institutions tie right to use the prefix "Royal." All institutions which aro properly entitled to use tho prefix are registered in the books, tit the Lord Chamberlain's oflico, but a great many use  -��������������������������� itwho ure-not-outitled-to do so, for the  simpU reason that it acts as a great  help in obtaining subscriptions. Except  in one or two glaring instances of misappropriation of the prefix, no trouble was  tnkon in tho Into reign to investigate  bit* rights of any society or institution  lo ntylc itself "Royal," and numbers  of sociotios availed themselves of this  state of affairs to do so without proper  authority, but under tho new regulations  they will no longer be able to do so;  already ono institution has been per-  emptovily ordered to cease designating  itself'"Royal," and, as a result, several  others, not entitled to use the prefix,  Haro voluntarily dropped it.  In one case that recently came to  light, it was ascertained that a. society  which existed practically for pushing  the sale of a certain Ameiicau patent  medicine described itself as "Royal"  on its circulars, though it carefully refrained from doing so more openly. In  future, no society not registered as  "Royal" will be allowed to designate  itself' as such, and thc privilege to use  thc prefix will not be at all so readily  granted as heretofore, as his Majesty  has been long of opiuion that it is one  which has been always too easily secured. OP course, the right to designate  itself "Royal" will not be withdrawn  from any institution which is properly  entitled to do so.  In the same way, the claims of Royal  ^Warrant   holders   will   be   investigated  with  oqual care.

A CHANGE OF MIND  (By Kevil G. Henshaw, in Outing Maga  zine)  HERB are certain freshwater officers  who gain their titles solely by a  close asosciation wilh the water  front. You can see them upon any clear  day, scattered like ungainly mile posts  along the riv.er-banks, smoking, fishing,  telling eternally of incidents that have  never occurred. None of them have  been tosea, few of them own even so  much as a rowboat, yet they are captains every oue.  All of them are old, all of them are  idle. Each of them has his own particular spot overlooking the water for, even  in the easy acquirement of their titles,  a-certain amount of propriety niust be  observed. ' Of .these - uaptain Wilkins  ,was a type. \  . hi .appearance' he was 'one of those  small, contradictory men of less -than  five feet in height," about whom everything else gives oue an, impression of  size.- His laugh was loud and rumbling,  his voice was like the bellow of a bull,  his moustaches-were huge and red,-curling up fiercely at the ends. . His opinions  were voiced .with the solemn impressive-  ness of a judge,, he moved with the  slow, majestic progress of "a great body  And the worst of it" was that ho took  himself seriously. As Harahan, tho corner saloon man, on ee"said, "If he had  had any sense of humor, he would have'  laughed himself to death."  Theoretically, Captain Wilkins was  supposed to be in search 01 a job at the  docks, an occupation which he had' followed unsuccessfully for the - greater  part of his life. Practically, he employed his days in attending to tho several duties of his oflice. In the meantime Mrs. Wilkins took in'washing.  Now as no description of a man can  be complete without a hint at either his  likes or dislikes, 1 will finish mine of  Captain Wilkins by recounting the two  things in which he took a chief and particular pride.  The first, his grandson, Little Bill,  "rfcedir=rio-coinment���������������������������froin=-rnj���������������������������peiif^Ghil-  dren are children the world over, and  poor indeed is the heart that 'doos not  turn towaTd them. Of Captain Wil-  kins's affection for thc child it will be  enough to say that he hourly paid him  the very highest compliment in his  power. \  "There's a .boy for you)" ho would  proudly observe. "Some day he'll grow  up to bo a man like his grandaddy."  . ..Tho.second, his reputation as a swim-  mer, Captain Wilkes had built up and  kept going through a series of interminable and highly colored anecdotes. All  of thorn related to incidents of his youth  which had brought on a series of complaints that effectually prevented his  entering the water.  Ono morning in the early summer.  Captain Wilkinsisat in his accustomed  spot upon the Tiver bank, Thc day  was perfect, his position was comfort  able, a pipe was between his teeth, and  a fishing pole was stuck into tho soft  enrth within easy reach of his hand. Tn  addition to these comforts he had the  luxury of a listener in the person of  Larry Brown.  v Larry w7as Captain Wilkins's most ardent admirer, lie was a voting man of  a simple and trusting disposition, and  the fact that he had obtained a job at  the docks in no wise affected his belief  in tho capabilities of his hero. Jn fact.  Larry looked upon the job as only a  species of disagreeable initiation into  the more honorable duties of thc future.  If ho saw enough of Captain Wilkins.  he told himself, he eould learn to emulate him. In time he might even become  like him. Then' he would get married  and become a captain himself, marriage,  as 1 have intimated, being a necessary  adjunct to the proper enjoyment of the  office.  As usual, Larry was listening with  rapt attention to one of the Captain 'i������������������  anecdotes.  " 'Twas done on the lo-wer .Teems,'-'  that worthy was saying, "down where  she's moro'u five miles wide. I was on  the schooner Jenny Wade���������������������������old man Joe  Wade bcin' captin an' mo bein' mate.  You've heard me tell of-her before, I  reckon. Fho'o tho'boat I chased out of  Hampton Roads.  "Yes, sir, jumped off the dock just at  she'd got ���������������������������good an' away, an' swum  after her I'd hate to say how manj  miles. Captain Joe didn't ease up oi  put about, till I was nearly all in. Said  ho wanted to see just how long I couki  hold on. He says to this day he reckon*  I could have swum clear to Baltimore il  I M tried, but of course that's goin' too  far. I ain't a fish. I'm just a ordin  nry human who can naturally swim.  "But what I'm going to tell you  happened, as I 've said,' on the Iontoi  fcoins. We was just comin' home from  a trip one night un' I was figurin' ou  thc captin's putt-in" in on the way tip  the river an5 lettin' me go ashore to set  my gal. I don 't moan the old lady. Thit  was another ono named Sue. Likewise,  as Sue's old man was some cross an' ir  ritable, I'd brought 'long a five-gallon  jug of hard eider from Norfolk, to sortei  soothe  him.  '.'.Sue lived in a littlo town on thc  right bank an' we was hugging close to  the left bank on account of the current,  so, when the lights begun to show wa)  on ahead, I asked Captain Joe to cross  over.  " 'You're crazy,' says ho. 'Do you  reckon I'm goin' five miles out of mj  mav for any such fool bizuess as seein"  a gal?'  " 'Lend me thc skig, then, an' I'll  rcw across,' says I.  "'No, you won't,'--says' he. 'Not  havin' no wings, I'm figurin' to use hei  myself when-i go ashore.'  "So there I "was, all fixed and ready  to see Sue, with a five-gallon jug for tin  old man. An' there was the town slip-  pin' doivn on us all the time, an' gettin'  ready to pass us with five miles of room  to spare. Now if you'd been me, what  do you reckon you'd done?','  "I reckon I'd just put off that visit  till some other time," answered Larry,  as he had auswered the same question  a dozen times before.  - Captain Wilkins considered the reply  as carefully as though it had been entirely new to him.  "Yes," said i he after a while, - "I  reckon that's just what you an' most  young fellers would have done. But  that wam't my way- I just ..naturally  tied my shoes round my neck an' took  that jug in one hand an' swum ashore."  "Still holdin' the jug?" asked Larry  with well-feigned surprise.  ''.'Why, of course," said Captain Wilkins. "You ought to be acquainted with  me" well enough to know that I wouldn't  rjo au' feed all that good lickcr to the  relics. - .  "But the'joke of the thing is that 1"  didn't get to sec Sue after-all. "No, sir.  After,] 'd got dried out in .Captain Riddle's kitchen, my clothes was so shrunk  they just about covered half of me. An'  that" half war'n't the "biggest half, by a  long sight: _FactJis I gavo _'em to Captain Riddle for his little boy. I likewise  swapped the jug for" an old suit of oil  skins to get back to .the Jenny in.. They  sure did joke ine about it. 'Some folks  say"that's where tho old sayin' about  'Keep your clothes on' comes-from."  The Captain paused suddenly to attend to his fishing." After he had landed  and unhooked a very diminutive perch,  he threw back his line and sat staring  out upon the water in search of another  anecdote. As he did so, a single shell  sped noiselessly up from below and shot  swiftly past in the still water beneath  him, So smoothly, so expertly, did thc-  red-jerseyed' figure at tho oars propel it  that he left scarce a ripple to mark his  progress.  Confronted with one of his pot annoyances, Captain.Wilkins glared after  the oarsman in impotent hatred."   -  "Blame them boat-club sports," he  growled." -"They're  that's what thev are.  - they're snipes,  Why can't, they  stay home an' mind their own biznis  'stead of rompin' up an' down the river  in a boat like a butcher knife, scarin'  the fish off poor folks' hor;ks? Why  can't they wear some clothes 'stead of  puttin' on a couple of holes with a lit-  "fle^Kl^r6^te1:l"^^TappM"^our]'d"^em,=to"  keep 'em from fallin' apart? If I was  to go out like that, I 'd bo arrostcd.  "Some one of these days I'll swim  out an' turn one of 'em over. If he  don >t get ashore, it won 't be any fault  of mine."  At this moment tho ono o'clock  whistles began to- blow. Larry rose reluctantly to his feet.  "Wel'l, I reckon I'll get back to  work." saiiLbo " You.goin ".home?"  "Not till the fish quit bitin'," replied Captain Wilkins. "If they keep on  like this, I reckon I'll stay all day."  At five minutes past ono, Little Bill  appeared with a dinner pnil. After  Captain Wilkins hud petted him and  had praised him upon tho success of his  journey, he fell npon the food with all  of the voracity of a hungry fisherman,  In thc meantime, Little Bill looked  after the lines.  The accident, occurred at oiro fifteen.  Whether the child had leaned over too  l'fir or lost his footing in attending to a  bite, the Captain never knew. ' He  heard the scream and, despite his pom-  uous movements, arrived at the edge of  the  bank   coincident   with   the   splash,  Now had any of Captain Wilkins's-  friends been present, it is probable that  they would have fplt but little alarm.  A plunge, a stroke or , two by the  ilovighty swimmer, and till would have  been well again.  It is my painful duty, howover, to  relate that the Captain did none of  these things. lie simply stood upon the  hank and stared in white-faced, agony  at thc rapidly" sinking curls for, alas, he  could not swim! He it said to his credit  that, had there been n chance of saving  the child, he would unquestionably have  plunged in. But the bank was high and  inaccessible, and there was no chance  of landing save at a pier a good fifty  yards below.  When Little Bill went down for the  second time, Captain Wilkins closed'his  eyes and turned away. As he did so  there came a flash of brown, a streak of  red, and a sudden, resounding splash  It is unfortunate that tho Captain hac1  his eyes closod, for he would have be  held the spectacle of a man diving fron  a rapidly moving sh'ell���������������������������a feat which  despite his experiences, might havo ap  pealed to him. As it was, the younp  -nun from the boat club was just drap  ',Mng Little Bill from his third descent:  when  he whirled hopefully around.  "Go to the pier," spluttered fin  young man as he turned over on lib  back and uoated down with the currcir  ���������������������������the child's head hold well above tin  water.  After the young man had landed a'  the pier, he assisted the Captain in roll  ing and pounding Littlo Bill to lift  igain. Wiicn it became apparent thai  his efforts were successful, he sinilei  with pleasure, waving aside Captaii  Wilkins's protestations of gratitude.  "Never mind about that," said he  ���������������������������'Just get this child home, and give hin  something strong and warm to drink  llo'll come round all right, never fear.'  "An' how'11 you get home your  self?." askodsthe Captain, -with a glance  at his companion's scanty attire.  "Oh, some of the fellows will se<  my boat as it drifts" past," said he.  "They'll be looking foT me in a niinuti  or two."  ' So Captain Wilkins hurried homi  with his unconscious burden, but be  fore he got there he did a curious thing  Stopping at a lonely and deserted piei  he descended its ladder until the write)  closed for an instant above his head  Some few mornings later, Captaii  Wilkins sat beside Larry in his accus  tomed "spot upon the rivor bank. At  usual he was indulging in an anec  dote, but, this- time, it related to ai  event that had occurred a bare five days  before. *  "So, as soon as I heard him yell, 1  jumped to my feet, "and took off from  the bank there," the Captain was say  ing, "right there where it's sortei  stomped down.' Of course there warn 't  much swimmin' to it for a man like me  ���������������������������-only a stroke or two. It was the' div  in' fhat counted.   .  - - '     ���������������������������'.

A special prize, a  beautiful  gold  emblematic scarf pin,  donated    by    Dr.     MacDonald,    was  awarded    to   Mr. P. Murphy for the.  splendid record made by him and by  his rink."  The regular schedule games between  the home rinks are now in progress,  the wind-up of the first round being  now in sight. Most of the rinks will  have finished by Saturday, but some  have unavoidably missed their games  and will, probably' require the early  part of next' week to finish up. Then  will start the second round, and it is  the purpose .of the club to pull off  four 8-end games each evening. This  will greatly add to the interest, and  visitors to the rink will see and hear  some curling curling when they start.  The rinks are evenly matched, and  it is anybody's run for the silverware and buttons yet.  Murphy has played nine games,  winning from Taylor, Fulton, .Graham, Keith, Jas.
