The list given by the .Star- includes, seven ex-  members of Liberal parliaments, farmers,' lawyers,  bankers; businessmen, etc.   The "list-does" not" include -  ��������������������������� the 18 Liberals who, signed a manifesto asking Laurier  to retrace his steps to Washington. ���������������������������   ���������������������������  Has the reader of any newspaper published in the  Dominion of Canada seen the names of even five Conser-  ^vatLves=W-ho^aE.e^taclay=,fa.v_or.ingjiecipr.o_cLty?^  j  If not, then where did. Dr. MacDonald get his information?  Mr. MacDonald said the farmers of Canada would.  benefit by getting access to a larger market.  "Let me  say to you" this: From 1880 to 1900,  15,344 farms in '  New England, with an acreage.of 5,000,000 acres were  abandoned.   These farmers had access to this "larger  "market.""rThe~thbusands~of farmers who"have-flocked "  to the Canadian Northwest  in the past  five years  from the United States -had  access  to this "larger  market."   Why did they flock?  Mr. MacDonald said our lumber men would benefit by getting access to a "larger market." How ?  Mr. t)eachman, the Liberal speaker who was here last  week, stated this.facty,that. '.'lumber prices are lower  in the United States than in Canada. Therefore our  lumber could not be put on the market on-the other  side except at a sacrifice."  Mr. MacDonald said our fisheries would benefit by  getting access to this "larger market."- B. C.'s fish  pack is 200,000 cases per season. The fish pack of the  Puget Sound alone amounts to 800,000 caies. ' What  advantage would our fish industry gain in going up  against these odds?  Mr. MacDonald said that reciprocity would assist  our mining, industry. How? By removing the duty  on our ores going into the United States? No. By  giving better smelting facilities? No. Then in what  way? "By reducing the cost of .supplies to the mining  camps!" From where? From the factories and  farms across the line!  Mr. MacDonald said he had a 20-acre fruit orch-  .S_QUEE,ZEIl_OUT.3_Y_THE_BIG_ HOG.  ard at Vernon, and he was not afraid to compete with  the fruit growers of the other side who dumped the  fruit into Canada after supplying the 'larger market ?'  But he said nothing about the delegation of a thousand  fruit growers from Ontario to Ottawa, and the dozens  of resolutions from B. C fruit growers to Ottawa ask-  - -ing thatthepresent-tariff- on -the -fruit -dumped-into'  Canada be maintained.  Mr. MacDonald said that everybody wanted reciprocity, and he read much from Hansard, But he failed  to read this from Hansard: "March 21st, 1899; page  202���������������������������Sir Wilfrid Laurier: 'I have no right to speak of  what took place in the commission, but I have a right  to refer to what is now in the minds of our people; ancl if we  know the hearts and minds of our people at present^ 1 think I  am not making too wide a statement when I say that THE  GENERAL FEELING IN CANADA. TO-DAY IS NOT IN  FAVOR OF RECIPROCITY. There WAS A TIME when  Canadians would have given many things to obtain the  American market; there was a time not long ago when the  market of the great cities of the Union was the only market  we had for any of our. products." But, thank heaven ! those  days are past and over now. We are not dependent upon the  American market as we were at one time. Our system of cold  storage has given .us a market in England which we had not  before.' " . Was Sir Wilfrid Laurier right then, or is Dr. K.  C. MacDonald right now ? '  Mr. MacDonald said that reciprocity was a good thing for  Canada as a whole. He did not state that the compact wasthe  work of Washington tariff experts. He did not state that it is  the .policy of these tariff experts to prepare these agreements  for the "benefit" of the other nation. He did not state how  the Canadian producer was going to be benefitted by selling  his product in a "larger market" already oversupplied by the  American producers, who are even to-day, inspite of the tariff,  shipping into Canada and forcing down the market price.  Food   for Thought.  Here are some extracts about  the logical conclusions of reciprocity which Mr. MacDonald,  the Liberal candidate, avoided in  his Enderby address Monday evening:    _____ ,._:_y:  Senator McCumber, of North  Dakota, say's7 "Canadian Annexation is the logical conclusion of  reciprocity with Canada."  Ex-Goveinor N. B. Bachelor,  New Hampshire says : ���������������������������"The  only fair way for free trade to be  established would be to let the  Stars and Stripes to float over  Canada."  The New York American, the  leading Hearst paper, thinks it  speaks for Canada: ' 'Eventually,  of course, Canada will come in.  That will happen when we want  her; meantime, she is, so to  speak, keeping herself for us in  colonial cold storage."  The Chicago Record-Herald has'  'no doubt about Canada having  reached the parting of the ways.  "The people across the line recognise that Canada- is about to  choose between Canadian and  American interests, and between  the Empire and the Republic."

IS THE WOELD GETTING WARMER  Mfijior K. A.  Marriott has written a  pamphlet  intended to convey the gratifying assurance that we shall soou have  wanner weather all ovor the world. This  news will probably be received with a  lack of enthusiasm in  Xew York, Chicago, and other places, where they are  well  supplied   with   warmth   just   now,  but Major Marriott    is a scientist and  his  scale   of   time   measurement  is    a  'laige one.      He refers to some  future  pciiod when the obliquity of the earth's  axis will be much less than  it is now,  wi 1 li a consequent shrinkage of the polar  regions,     fn  ihe year  13,5-14 B.C.,  ihe  axial obliquity was 'do degrees and the  glacial   region  covered   the  earth.   The  present obliquity is only '23 degrees, and  in  3SO brief years we shall  reach  the  apex of thc genial period when the contrast  hetwi-en summer and winter will  he least.     Already this axial movement  is showing its effects.      Captain Scott,  says Major -Marriott, on his return from  the Antareii':    expedition,    emphasized  ihe rapidity with whieh the south polar  ice is retreating, and it is known that  theie is a similar condition in the north,  lu  Canada   certain  lands bordering ou  tbe north  have been  hitherto reported  as, too ice-bound for agricultural operations, but large tracts have now been  found  to  present    favorable     climatic  conditions owing to  some  change that  has taken place, while in Iceland there  was  no  snow and   hardly  a.ny  frost .in  the mid-December of 1910.-  Storyettes  L  MAN may appear great to some  while to others he is "merely large.  There is one man who is both���������������������������  ['resident William H. Taft. Ho likes to  make jokes at his own expense, aud  said, one day when he missed a car for  which he had  been running:  "The more waist���������������������������the less speed."  >    ���������������������������*'   .1  'fhe unexpected twist that is supposed  to be peculiar to American humor seems  to appear also in Scotch stories. For  example, one which was told me by,  Mr, Andrew Carnegie of a Scotchman  accosted by a military picket*.  '' Who aie you?'-' challenged the soldier.  "fm line," answered b'andy. ''.ll'oo'f*  yorself ?;:  .<     i  The wit. of the Irish was delightfully  exemplified to'me once when I was travelling through Ireland with the late  ilenry Ward Beecher. We were driven  to our hotel in Belfast through a drizzling rain. When i paid the driver 1  said:  "Are you wet. Pat'?'"  "Sure, your honor, if 1 was, as wet  inside as I am outside I VI be as dhry as  a bone.''  Another President about whom many  stoiies were told was Grover Cleveland.  One which he enjoyed very much himself was that one time when he was  out hunting he was overtaken by darkness, and coming to a fisherman-'s hut  knocked al the door. The family had  retired, but after repeated knocking a  man put his head out of a window and  asked:  '' Who's there?*"  "'I. am," said Grover Cleveland, "I  want, lo stay here all night."  "AU  right,  mav there."  MOST  SOLEMN    PEOPLE  IN    THE  WORLD  Laughter is.unknown among the Yed-  dahs of Ceylon. They are the most  solemn people in the world. When a  traveller asked some of them why their  'people never" gave indications of mirth,  they replied that they never saw airy-  thing to laugh at.     On the other hand.  -some savages appear, to havo a more  robust sense of. humor than their, civil.,  ized "brethren." "Dr. Livingstone tells of  ���������������������������an.

XWHY WE SLEEP  The many theories of tho cause of  sleep reduce chiefly to two typos, those  that attribute sleep to the using-up or  exhaustion of substance or energy: and  those that treat it a.s :i poisoning due  to the accumulation of waste products  of some sort. Mr. R. Legendre, a  French authority, believes that sleep is  defensive0��������������������������� its origiu, but he thinks  he has established tho fact that tho  thing against -which it is intended.to  defend or protect us is a poisonous sub-  "2. The supposed phenomena, were  they real, might as well be the consequences as the cause of sleep.  "3. Finally, even supposing that they  aro really causes, the method of their  mechanism remains problematic. Why  this periodic anemia or hyperemia"?  Why this retraction of the nerve cells?  Why this inhibition, this lack of reaction to outside stimuli? The hypotheses  only push the problem n stop further  back.  Besdes these "'circulatory theories,"'  we have also chemical theories, which,  although bettor than the others, are  still insufficient, Mr. Legendre thinks.'  Thchei explain sleep as the result of  poisoning by some substance produced  by the organism, perhaps the same as  the "fatigue toxin." According to  Dubois, for instance, sleep is due to the  accumulation of carbonic acid "in "tho  blood. Thc trouble is that although  fatigue, induces sleep, too great fatigue  interferes with it.

We translate and condense the  following from a lecture delivered by  Mr. Legendre at the National Museum  of Natural History in Paris and printed  in thc Kevuo Scicntifique (Paris. June  17):  "Some old writers thought that sleep  was connected with a tush of blood .to  the head, due lo the recumbent position, but, in reality, during sleep .the  brain contains less blood, and we know  that it is possible to lie down for a  long time without sleeping. Observation of blood-pressure at different points  from the brain to the extremities- during sleep have made others think it due  to cerebral anemia. .Other authors have  criticized this hypothesis; Brodrnan has  observed an increase of pressure at the  nibment of falling asleep and Kichet  adds that the variations of pressure due  to sleep or awakening are less than  those due to thc position of. the head,  "Sleep'has also'been supposed to.be  caused by modifications of the" blood  or.lymph, but ��������������������������� experiment has shown  that there is no relation between sleepiness and the condition-of the blood.--..-  "Besides, these circulatory." theories,'  there are others that explain sleep by  herve-phenomena.' -Sleep- may be due  to interruption of communication between thc hemispheres of the,brain and  the rest of the nervous system. Or it  may be caused by interruption of contact between nerve-cells, but"unfortunately- these theories lack experimental  justification.  "Thc idea of explaining sleep by an  inhibition, that is to say, by a,function  of arrest of the- nerve-centre?, " has  proved a seductive one to mauy physiologists -  - "Again, some writers have attributed  sleep to the absence of exterior excitants, basing their theory on observation  of persons suffering from general anesthesia who fall asleep as soon as their  eyes are closed ancl ears stopped; . Unfortunately these patients are hysterical and their sleep differs from normal  sleep." Also, although silence and darkness favor sleep, one may sleep in the  light and in thc midst of noise.  "Claparede has made a fine and penetrating criticism of these circulatory  hypotheses.      lie says:  "1. The hypotheses are far from  I'o.stin.P1��������������������������� un-i. .���������������������������.nre���������������������������facts.: _ni a n v_ o f���������������������������th cm.  are even contrarv to fact.  Warts  are  unsightly  blemishes,  and  corns are painful growths. Holloway's  Corn Cure will remove thein.'  eems an advance.    It is thus described  by the lecturer:  ''Sleep is noL simply a passive or  negative state, a cessation of the functions of the organism: it is itself a  function', a positive activity with its  biologic significance. We sleep just  before we become exhausted, and we  sleep to prevent it. Sleep is a defensive  function of the organism: we are sleepy  just as we are hungry or thirsty. This  conception of sleep as an active instinct preceding, exhaustion, changes  the question altogether. Like-all instincts, sleep is ruled by the law of  momentary interests;-wc sleep only if  the motive for sleep is the greater at  a given moment, but we can prevent  ourselves from sleeping if another instinct .is preponderant. The theory of  Claparede thus has an immense advan- "  tagc over all others, since it alone can  be applied to the varied forms of sleep.-  Agaiu, it does not exclude physiological  theories, since it may accept them  as  stimuli of the  sleep-instinct."   - .But if sleep is an instinct of defense,  against what does it protect us? -This*-*  question,    Legendre.   says, _  can-7be-.  answercd  only ' by  experiment,', and" he? '  has .tried so to answer it. by depriving":,  animals  of  sleep  and   watching   their .  behavior.    We read: - _     J- '.

Tlie announcement was made this' week that the bread
merger known as the Canada Broad Company ia to build a
quarter of a million plant in Winnipeg. The general manager of thc concern is Mark Bredin, of the Bredin Bread
Company, of Toronto. Mark has been in the bread business
all his life and knows nil the peculiarities of yeast and
dough, lie started twenty-five years ago driving a bread
wagon in Toronto. lie then started in the bakery business
in a very small way. He baked thc bread at first himself,
;md 3 It or getting a few dollars ahead puTchabed a horse.
One day the animal dropped dead and, not having money
enough on hand to replace the beast, the business threatened
to be crippled. Finally he persuudod-his brother to lend
hini some cash, and a new equine soon hauled the cart
around. He blamed the man who drove the horse for its
death, and Mr. Bredin took a position ou the rig himself.
He continued on driving the rig i'or three and a half yeaTS,
nnd then went hack into the shop. The man who he replaced is said-to be still driving a wagon around Toronto.
Today Mt. Bredin is practical head of one of the biggestj if
not the biggest, bread concerns on the continent.
The young Saskatchewan University .seems to have a
way of gathering in bright young men for its faculty. Its
latest capture is Dr. J'. L. Hogg, who has been on the staff
of McMaster University for the past live years as professor
of physics, and who has been very popular as a lecturer and
director of practical-work in his department.
Professor Hogg is a Canadian, a graduate of the University of .Toronto, and a scientist of wide - reputation. He
took post-graduate work at Harvard University, and while
there"published alseries of papors on rarificd gases which
have brought him to the attention of some of the foremost
scientists of-the world. He is to have eharge of the department of physics at Saskatoon, and will have the opportunity of picking the equipment of the laboratory."

Two years ago another professor from the same university was' brought west to Saskatchewan, Dr. E. W. Oliver,
who is head of the department" of- history a*nd economics.
Dr. Oliver was also a Toronto University man. graduating
in the class of 19027
At A-'arsity ho was a perfect hog-for work. Most students think they are doing remarkably well if they take one
course and get decent honors in it. Oliver took the hardest

a -couple of more courses.' -Those, who didn't know biin

Owing to the greater display of enterprise that is 'now being ovinced by
electricity  generating   corporations,   in
conjunction   with   inventive  effort,  the
advantages of cooking " by electricity
arc   being  brought   more   forcibly   before the housewife.     Certainly it constitutes the most hygienic and simple
form of preparing dishes for thc table      '    ;

k THE "ENDERBYPRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, September 21, 1911  Dr. K. C. MacDonald's Views on  the Blessings of Reciprocity Pact  Dr. K. C. MacDonald addressed the  electors of Enderby on Monday evening in K. of P. Hall. The hall  was fairly   crowded by Liberals and  He said the fiddling of Nero at the  burning of Rome was not to be compared with the folly of the Conservative party    in   dancing to the fid-  Conservatives,    with  a  sprinkling  of clling of that   arch-traitor in Quebec,  ladies. The speaker was given an  attentive hearing, as were also Senator Bostock and Mr. Johnson, the  workingman's candidate.  Dr. I-I. V.'. Keith was in thc chair.  Iiis remarks were brief as he introduced Senator Bostock. Senator  Bostock never has been advertised as  an orator, and his remarks Monday  evening were short. He casually  blamed the Opposition for opposing  the measure in the Commons, ancl  said that the Liberal party rather  than be dictated to by the Opposition had brought on the elections at  this time.       Senator   Bostock spoke  the leader of the fight against Sir  Wilfri'd. Patriotism is not a question of politics, he said. A Liberal  was just as patriotic as a Conserva-  vative and the question of a man's  patriotism should never be questioned  no matter to which party he was  attached.  Mr. MacDonald was asked if he had  supported a resolution passed by the  Vernon Board of Trade petitioning  thc government at Ottawa to keep  the duty on   American fruit, as was  "Resolved, that the Central Farmers' Institute views with alarm .a  movement (recently advanced by the  grain growers of the prairies for reciprocity in natural products with  the United States, as such an adjustment of the tariff would be of material disadvantage to the horticultural industry of this province, and  this meeting is strongly of opinion  that not only should no reduction of  thc duty on fruit be permitted by the  Dominion Government, but that immediate steps should be taken to  place our duty on a parity with that  of the United States which, in several  instances, is considerably higher on  various kinds of fruit than ours."    '  tended these meetings of the Board  of Trade and know that our report  of the proceedings was an absolutely  fair and correct one.  "We are sorry that Dr. MacDonald  has resorted to such quibbling to escape a situation which we admit  must be rather galling and embarrassing to him. But he makes matters worse for himself by his present  attitude.  "The News has nothing to retract,  nothing to explain away; nothing to  apologize for.  "We leave the case in the hands of  the people of Vernon who know the  facts."  reported in   the  Vernon News.     His  reply was warm.  "That statement    is an unqualified  man  ramblingly around many subjects, but falsehood;- he said, "and the  about the time the .hearer was get- Who wrote it knew it."  ting interested in anything he was Tie then proceeded to give the Installing about, he switched to some- tory���������������������������of that resolution. The resolu-  thing else. ' One thing we did man- j tion in question was passed at Vic-  age to get hold of in his remarks , toria. It was framed up by Mr.  was the fact that a minister of the , McKelvic himself, and was taken to  Government had brought in a request j Victoria by Mr. Lee. It was after-  in the House for funds sufficient to ('wards 'brought before the Vernon  enable him to complete the survey of j Board of Trade. He told the Board  the waterways in the Dominion^ that if their pamphlets were true  lands belt, and our member, Mr. Bur- j then they had no case to take to Ot-  rell, failed to speak in favor of the  minister's request, therefore the attitude of Mr. Burrell was very reprehensible.  Mr. Johnson was allowed to speak  20 minutes. Mr. Johnson said it  was not often that a laboringman  had the privilege of hobnobbing with  ' Senators, ancl hc appreciated the  honor.     His remarks on the economic  tawa. The Board wanted to put a  duty on lumber coming into Canada.  The settlers in the Northwest wanted  cheap lumber ancl here was the Vernon Board of Trade asking for something that was contrary to the needs  ancl wishes of the, people to whom  they looked to buy their fruit. He  told the board that they could not  ns'c for both ancl expect to.be taken  questions were more attentively heard j seriously,  at this    meeting,    and   Mr.   Johnson  evoked applause and laughter by his  semi-humorous  references  to  both   of  the old parties.'  Dr. MacDonald was - well received.  ,He said there.. was but one issue be:  " fore, the- people "in this campaign/and  -that _ reciprocity. Pie believed it  was a good business proposition for  Canada. He went back over the  history of reciprocity, to show.that  it had been a favorite issue in the  past, ancl    especially   in the years of  Mr. MacDonald rmde the same  statement- in his address at Kamloops, ancl was so reported in the  Sentinel, thc Liberal organ of that  city. Commenting on Mr. MacDonald's statement of the case, the Vernon "News said" in its last"issue:  "Did you ever see anything like  that !  "In the first place, Mr. MacKclvie  had no more to clo with the 'resolution passed by the Board of Trade  than  thc  'man    in   the moon.'      Mr.  long    ago   when    Canada was young  MacKelvie did help    Mr. Lee to pre-  and    undeveloped.       He    referred "*to  Hansard  to    show    that   since 1896,  when    tne   Liberal    party wiped out  the /-emaining clause on our statutes  enabling to  United  States to reopen  negotiations    for-, reciprocity, the issue had been dead.     Not a word had  been said    in    connection with it on  the floor of   the    House until it was  "revived by the    opening of the negotiations    at    Washington  which   culminated  in    the    agreement now before  the electors.      Viewed from any  standpoint,   hc considered  reciprocity  was a good    thing    for Canada.     It  meant a reduction ln the cost of living of 24 per cent.   It meant a larger  pare a resolution a few weeks previous which Mr. Lee presented to the  Central Farmers' Institute at Victoria, and which was there endorsed.  The resolution read as follows:  "Now here is the resolution passed  at the Vernon Board of Trade, at a  meeting of the Council of that Body,  which received the unanimous assent  of all present including Dr.  MacDonald:       'That    the   Vernon Board of  Trade views    with   alarm the movement recently advanced by the grain  growers    of    the    prairies  for reciprocity in    natural   products with the  United States, as such adjustment of  the tariff would be a material disadvantage to the    fruit'growing industry, which   is    still in its infancy in  this    province.        This     meeting   is  strongly of   the   opinion that no reduction in the   tariff   should be permitted by the Dominion Government.  "And   it   is   further resolved that  copies of this resolution be wired to  Sir    Wilfrid  -Laurier,    Hon.    W.    S.  Fielding,  Hon.   Sydney Fisher,   Senator Bostock and Martin Burrell.  "Ancl it is further .resolved that in  the opinion of this meeting the tariff  on lumber should be left unchanged."  "And at the first regular meeting  of the Board, subsequent to this, Dr.  MacDonald stated that he believed  that reciprocity would be of, benefit  to Canada, and he believed in its  principles; but so far as local conditions were concerned he was ready to  throw his influence in with the community, and -���������������������������. had taken an active  Part in-framing the resolution of pro-,  test forwarded by the .Council of the  Board.  "This was, on   the 8th of February  ast.     Dr. -MacDonald's position then  was plain.     It is very"far from plain  now.  ���������������������������"One thing is certain: Dr. MacDonald has not been misrepresented  or misreported in the slightest degree by this paper.

T. P. EAST  OF WINNIPEG.  Good progress is being made with  the eastern section of fho National  Transcontinental Railway. Somo portions of thc line east of Winipeg are  ready for freight. That portion  from Winnipeg to Superior Junction  was operated last winter. The National Transcontinental Commission are  about to hand over to the' Grand Trunk  Pacific the 320 mile section from the  Quebec bridge to Mont au Chcne.  This stretch will have a heavy lumber,  pulpwood, and pulp traffic to handle  from the St. Maurice river. Negotiations are going on for the transfer  of the section between Moncton and  J Master Rock to the Grand Trunk d-*a-  cific for operations before next autumn.  Good progress has been made wilh construction all the way between Levis'  and Moncton, but there are a couple of  big bridges to he built, whieh will  hold back the'transfer of the Maritime  section for some time. The Commission  is, however, arranging to transfer across  the river St. Lawrence by car ferries until the Quebec bridge has been complete-  cd. Engineers are about to select terminals for the car ferry, and tenders for  ferry boats capable of carrying the  railway cars across will be oallccl for  shortly.  What \re designate as the eye of a  fly is really a compound eye made ap of  numerous  lenses.    Of  these  the   common house fly has something like four  thousand in tho two eyes.    The structures of these lenses are well known,  the optical part of each consisting of  two lenses, which combined, form a double convex Ions.      That each lens acts  as a separate eye can be easily proved  by detaching the whole of the front of  the compound eye, and by manipulation  with" a microscope it is not difficult" to  examine  a  photograph  or other object  through it.    When  this is done a  dis-  tine, image is seen in each lens.      Carpenter has shown that each Ions-'shows  but a small portion if the image looked  at, and  that it requires the combined  action  of four thousand  louses  of the  fly to produce the same effect as that  seen   by   the  human  eye.    The  human  eye is., therefore, a more porfeo.t optical  instrument than thc oye    of    the    fly.  Scientists  who   have" given  considerable  attention   to  the  investigation  of  compound eyes have formed no opinion  that would load to the conclusion that  thoir  power  of  vision  with   respect  to  small objects exceeds that-of tho simple  eyes of the higher  animals.      The images of objects formed in the soparato  lenses composing the compound eye-are  proporionately   small,   and     the   question whether insects can see smaller oh-  jeds than animals furnished with single  eyes is not a question of optics, but of  the   sensitivenosa   of   the   optic   nerve  and consequently, a matter of mcre'con-  jecture.  that  when  the  had   been  written  ages ago,  old  J'larth'was  still  in  its childhood  "How did Barbie get around this?'.'  fez 17  "Well,   she   didn't   ha'vo   much   to  say; he didn't crawl up on a perch  call   her   names,  he  just  her  side   like  they  was  together;   an'   then   he  book  an'  most  of  the  ucxt  one.    -Me  then  ' . my.  stared  ���������������������������Ain't  kill-  * an *  for  tears   wl  vou   beggin'  f.

THE  LIMITS  OF  VISION  Some curious observations have been  made on the distinctness of perception,  in eyesight, and on the limits of it,  comparing other senses with the sense  of vision and human eyesight with the  eyesight of insects. The drift of the  inquiry has been simply to ascertain  how near together we caii place two objects and still sec them distinctly as-  two.  Placed very near together 1 hey ap  peai to become one. A specialist has  claimed that ho can with the unaided  eye distinguish lines ruled in glass that  are only one fifty-thousandth of an inch  apart, but Le Conto has limited the  power of the eye to distinguish line;?'  to one one-thousandth of an inch. To  show how immensely superior is thc-  sense of sight in defining single things,  ono can try thc sense of touch in com  parison .with it. The two points of a  pair of compasses placed throe inches  apart on the least sensitive parts of the  body will be felt as a single prick,  With the aid of the microscope the  human eye can discern single object?  whoso diameter is only about one one  hundred-and-eight-thousandth of an  inch.

THE GROWTH OF CRYSTALS  There is a wonderful resemblance between crystalline growth and the growth  of aaimals and. plants, especially with  refcre-nec to the power of 'healing and  repairing injuries.  ���������������������������if some of thc lowest and simplest  forms of animal life are torn asunder  they are not killed, but each separate  part grows into u perfect animal form.  In plants this power is much more completely developed, while crystals possess  it ta an astonishing degree. It has been  shewn that a. crystal that has been injured will, under certain circumstances,  suspend its gfeWth over the remainder  of its surface-until the injured part has  been repaired. Vet there ia no real life  in the crystal, but simply a force-that  causes its particles to arrange thein-  .sel������������������e* in geometric forms.-  Some crystals it is believed, have had  t.b'eir growth suspended during millions  ���������������������������f yc&is. after which enormous lapse of  time thc growth has,been renewed.  li one respect it has beeu pointed  out, crystals possess a great advantage  over human beings���������������������������they _are able to  renew their youth.

U.SJL  A GENERATION ago the life of an ordinary child was  considered   fairly  safe  nnd���������������������������bar  accidents���������������������������tlie child  was  pretty -certain  io  attain  maturity  as  a  normally  healthy  robust  animal.     But  those  w.mc  the  days  before  die advent of the pure food laws.  So comparative]}' uneventful ancl monotonous were the  .lives of children then that, by way of a little diversity  and excitement, wc were allowed to iead faiiy stories and  tales of hair-raising adventures to stimulate our imagination and prevent ���������������������������nr becoming too prosaic and matter-of-  fact.  But the child of to-day requires no such stimulus for  its baby mind, as it lives always in the enchanted forest,  is surrounded on all sides and lost in this horrible wood,  full of evil enchantments without a single beneficent fairy  to wave her wand and break* the spell as always happened  in the good old days. Slimy reptiles and j a tf-red- toothed  monsters lurk evcrwlicre about the path of the little Willie  of lo-day, lying in wait to jump out on him from his one  cent stick of candy, his ten cent dish of ice cream, and  even creep into the bread and pie that mother makes.  Danger lurks in the springy gum drop and that succulent sliver-speared morsel known as "little America's all  day sucker" is a dragon of many heads and tails.  In the last number-of Collier's, Louise Eberle tells a  woeful tale of the adulteration of foods dear to thc childish  palate: and she says truly that il is the children of the  poor who are the greatest victims. The children of 'parents  in ordinarily decent circumstances are allowed less liberty  in the choice of food than arc those of the very poor -whose  mothers work to support the family. This mother is  away "all day at her work and something must be done to  provide for the children during her absence, so the child  rs given five cents or ten cents and told to >������������������et something  far its, noon meal.  Here is where the childish imagination receives its  stimulus for the skimmed milk which, masqueraded as  cream (in the song, of course), was a rich and nourishing-  food compared to the mixture of cocoanut and shredded  cow horn sold to innocent Willie as cocoa-nut bar.  A few of the toothsome ingredients of thc confections  of the cheap candy and cake shop, arc, arsenic, free sulphuric acid, benzoic acid, salicylic acid, powdered white  rock, talc, copuer salts, Prussian Blue.-denatured alcohol,  wood alcohol, "illegal coal-tar dyes, alum, decayed fruit.  The good old-fashioned hard candy which was pure and  wholesome in the childhood of the older generation is now  the latest thing in sulphites and the coated candy-like  fudge or'the little brown nigger baby is aisenic-doped  shellac; and the so harmless-appearing glass of soda contains coal-tar or coal-tar and saccharin".      '       '       - . -  -;  If the children are hungry enough to prefer cake to  candy, they are no better off and eat all sorts of horrible  messes under the delusion that they are the delicacies that  their names would ind-ica'teT , ' To the manufacturer, coal-  tar'dye and benzoate of soda are his chief stock in trade.

After calling them hoodlums and recounting a few of  their boorish tricks, she lays the blame for their general  misbehaviour and lack of'maimers on thc girls.  These youths were guests at a party, and instead o  dancing with the girls whom they had engaged, remained  in the smoking-rooms where, to use plain English, they  broke open their hosts' cupboards and stole whole boxes  of, cigars, and later also stole all the boxes of sweets, intended as souvenirs for the girls. .  Of course Lady Gav does not accuse these barbarians  of stealing, but substitutes the more poliic words "rifle"  and "abstract," but it amounts to tho same thing anyway,  t.hev look them and used them. ,  After showing these "boys" up in this way she calmly  accuses thc girls of being guilty because they had not  made sufficient effort to please these young rascals, had  not been sufficiently "delicately feminine,' and had been  too "assertive" and "aggressive" and so had failed to  attract these masculine beings. Oh! Lady Gay. aren t  you confusing issues a bit and getting mixed between  cause and effect? ,  It is gratifying to learn that even in loronto, the  modern girl has too much self-respect to descend to the  level required to become atractive to such hoodlums. No  doubt these girls understood that young men capable of  such conduct were utterly unworthy of any attempt on  their part to attract, and would have felt humiliated if they  had    'possessed    any    finalities    that   such .boors    could  appreciate. '���������������������������'���������������������������������������������������������������������������������'���������������������������''        ,.  .There was a time when anything masculine was considered to be-worth v. the attention of even the best women,  but that time has gone forever, thank heaven !��������������������������� and after  some thousands'o-f vcars of experiment women have at  last realized that if anv good'is. to be accomplished, they  mint have ideals'of their own ami live up ki .ihcn,    The  time is almost here when if any man    wants   a   woman  friend, a sweetheart or a wife, hc will have to rise to hei  standard or else go  into thc gutter and choose his  wife  from among his own class and associates.  Evidently Lady Gay would have considered these girls  moie  womanly  if  they  had   simpered  or  flirted or  even  fainted   in   the  good  old   lady-like   way,   like  Amanda  of  the "Children oi the Abbey," and of felicitous memory.  Do you really believe what you said, Lady Gay, or were  you  playing just a bit to the gallery���������������������������in other words, the  men ?  ������������������    ������������������    ���������������������������  Until within recent years it has been left for the artist  to admire ������������������he red haired beauty. Though, of course, in  ancient times we read that ladies used to dye their hair  red, and it has been argued that CJeopatra was "auburn  haired." Queen Elizabeth's hair certainly was sunsel-  hued and her. beauty in youth was an acknowledged fact.  Color makes beauty and it is thc woman who can blend  tints and -make them harmonize with her hair, who is  queen of the situation in the matter of dress.  Red hair has been contrasted with blue customarily,  and yet from an artistic standpoint, this lis the one color  that should never approach it. Of course, there are  several types of the red haired beauty, and each requires  a different "'treatment." Red hair with blue eyes must" be  differently dealt with from red hair with /grey or green or  brown eyes. Very often blue eyes, which are the most  difficult to harmonize with color, may be * neutralized by  the shade of the gown while as soon as blue is introduced  into thc dress, the contrast with the hair is too strong.  Many blue eyes are of a transparent quality, easily reflecting another color. Like opals these eyes reflect whatever tint they are blended with. ,  Pale green is a very unfortunate color, with really red  hair, while deep red and yellows 'arc" very harmoniums  The following list of colors may be used ivith red hair,  but they are not ail equally suitable for all styles of red  hair: White, of a creamy tone; black; invisible green;  rich botile green; rich blue.green; .plum color: amethyst;'  brownish purple; pale yellow: brown: olive gTeen; gray  green; stone-gray: claret color*, maroon; gold color; pale  amber; dark amber;  reds, approaching amber.  To be avoided for red hair: Blues ot all shades; blue  white: pale green; scarJel, or all-bright red;-bright rose  pink: all violet pinks: blue purple; lavender..  There is a color that can  be.used  with-red hair,  but-  requires almost an artist to use it.' iii which case it is very  effecti've. It should be in small quantities and contrasted  with othcruones.    Jt is a pale yellowish  pink:    All pinks'  approaching a violet shade.are painful with red-hair, but  especially where-the eyes are brown, and the .complexion  of that shelWike beauty lhat often accompanies this tvue.  With the yellowish pink "spoken of. used as a lining.to a  dull "-olden brown ������������������'r deep ruby, as dark as.the rich, red  liellyhock  it  enhances  the' beauty of  the complexion  and  enriches the tint of the hair.    .   .- ..  !-  The blue-eyed  women of this type   do, well   to "wear  chiefly yellows,   stone-grey  and  greens,   also  the creamy,  white "and black.

TIcre is one about Napoleon's carelessness  in dress and what came of it:  Tn 1810 when Napoleon went to Conipiegne to receive  Marie Louise, his sister, the Princess Borghesc, said to him:  ''Your clothes arc badly cut and do not fit you, you are  so obstinate about not wearing braces, yonr trousers always look as though  they were fulling off���������������������������'*  "Well," answered the Emperor, "what do you advise  mc lo do about it? Can you recommend another tailor?'.'   "Have a-talk-with-Constant."    "- '   Constant, the Emperor's valet, was senl I'or and named  one Legcr, who was tailor (o Plural, Prince Eugene Joseph and Jerome. Ponapartc. A messenger was sent to summon him'nnd arrive in Conipiegne the next day; from that  moment he made everything Napoleon wore. Yle consistently ignored his imperial patron's suggestions concerning  his clothes. For instance, the Emperor wished the skirts of  his tunics lo be turned back, like those of Frederick the  Great. "J should not think of allowing such a thing, sir.  You would look absurd and my reputation would be lost.  The eyes of the whole world are upon your majesty and if  you were seen wearing such a uniform as you-propose it  would hc a disadvantage to you and "I should have to bear  the blame. Y would not make you such a tunic if you offered  me the whole of your empire."  > - ,i\- .'JU!  "'I  BEASTS WERE WORSHIPED.  Tt was in the eleventh and especially in the twelfth century that symbolical animals played a most conspicuous and  very peculiar part in thc ornamentation of church furniture  in ecclesiastical architecture. Lamps, sensors, pyxes, asjier-  gills, chrismaories, reliquaries and sacra men la I vessels*  were wrought in the form of griffins, ostriches, pelicans,  cranes, dolphins, doves, dragons, lions, or some other real  or fabulous creature, or had these animals carved upon  them. Tt was deemed a hard hit at the devil, .ind a masterly stroke of pious policy, to press beasts of evil omen and  Satanic significance into the service of the church, and  force them to assist al thc celebration of holy oflices. They  were therefore embroidered on vestments, and sculptured in  the chancel and the chapels and around the altars of the  sanctuary,where religious rites \vere usually performed.  Later, towards the close of thc twelfth century, they began  to take possession of the windows, portals,, arches and pinnacles, and finally extended to the whole exterior of thc  edifice, no part, of: which was safe from their encroachments. It was especially in cloisters that these beasts ran  riot, but not without provoking the indignation and opposition of nany eceleeiastiea.  -S'lskatoo.n-Edrooh'to^  cars comprise;"every^cohccivable'rfaeili:7'.^?I*.  tyT-for7th"c7c"omfort' of tnight7tray"elef'4:7?;v"M  and* though'the-' elaborate ���������������������������^brnanierita-7i7'J-tT  tions, deemed^nece8sary-_'in;the)''pastVi������������������^-'*vil-?  the' matter mt 'fancy ~deeoration9;*ih'-the.Sv:W'  interior- have -entirely ;.been;'abolished,rlit y������������������y$  has been supcrscde<i''by'!an',"arrahg,emje������������������t''7l^.  looking more to the;solid comfort,of "tke". -f-i-fi  traveler and at the same time"1 the'^artiy'ir-.  of .ear decoration has boen much enhanc^  ed by the rich appearance of the highly"-.  polished mahogany interior, and the-mb t.  tapestry - cushions * of the j seats.-' 7 -No''������������������  miporiliioiis curtains -,on .! the -windows If  to gather dust-are'found>-These'caf������������������7*  are.all alike.and the infccrioKarrang'-'-^  nient provides, iu" addition to-the "usual 7="7"v_|  number of scctioiiS;and"drawing7r66ia������������������,/%,"3l  a compartment complete-in itself_ ,witb.' 77-1  a "connecting, door lo thc drawing.'room'ir:'v4  for family or party use, although-lhe8V'-77i |  rooms may be nse'd .separately, =if"desir-"' *i ;:|  ed.

ROGERS LUMBER CO., Enderby  Now the shooting season through  out British Columbia is opening  a special word of warning is very  much in order for the man with  the gun who seeks the forests or  the fields in quest of snort and  who, should he fail to exercise  due care, may unwittingly be the  cause of woodland fires resoltirig  in wholesale destruction of public  and private property, even in loss  of many human lives.  How ? By failure on his part  to observe sufficient precautions  in lighting or (more important  still) in extinguishing his camp-  fires ; in carelessly dropping his  still-burning match, cigar, or  cigarette-end ; or in the use of  combustible gun - wads which,  smouldering after the shot is  fired, perhaps hours after the  hunter has gone his way, all unsuspecting.the mischiefof which  he has been guilty, ignites the  dry grasses ancl thus sows the  seeds of flame which grow-with  amazing, rapidity into' a - forest  conflagration.  ��������������������������� For the fact must never be lost  sight of 'that the Autumn, the  sportman's especial season of delights, is also the season of dry  and tinder-like conditions in the  woods.  As for combustible gun-wads,  they are a very common and in  this Province generally disregarded source of danger-to the  woods. Across the international  line-they are- so -fully recognized  as a forest menace that their use  is made a ��������������������������� criminal offence, to  which exceptional, penalties are  attached. Here iii British Columbia as.yet the law does not insist upon, the exclusive use of  non-combustible gun-wads, but  it is the obvious duty, as it should  be the pleasure, of- each good  citizen, to adopt and use none  other.  The forest danger of the discarded cigarette-end was terribly  illustrated in' the great Porcupine district horror of last summer, involving appalling loss in  lives and. property. Camp-fires  as a common origination cause of  forest fires are too-well recognized and statistically attested to  leave room for argument as to  the urgent necessity for the exercise of every precaution in  building or abandoning them.  ==Everyone'wants-t-he-true-sport-s-*  man to thoroughly enjoy himself during the season regarded  as peculiarly his own.' But he  will be serving his own interests  well���������������������������in securing the' preservation of the woods which are the  cover and the home of the wild  game���������������������������as well as showing himself a worthy.citizen, if .he. keep  constantly in mind the destructive agent he may himself unintentionally become if he relapse  into careless habits in the use of  his matches, his camp-fire, his  smokes, or his menace-laden gun  wads.  and makes up the national deficiency by importing annually  from the United States, hardwood  lumber to the value of seven and  a-half million dollars. Thus the  value of the hardwoods imported  into Canada during 1910 exceeded by 50 per cent the value of  the hardwoods manufactured into  lumber. Nearly all of these imports are from the United States  and consist of the most valuable  species such as oak. hickory, tulip or yellow poplar, chestnut,  gum, walnut, cherry and a large  amount of hard pine which is so  frequently used as a hardwood.  From these above figures, it is  seen that we are becoming more  and more dependent upon the  United States, whose available  supply for export is surely and  rapidly decreasing. Whatever  can be done to improve the resources of Canada by the elimination of wood waste, and particularly by the development of the  small wood lots of Ontario, Southern Quebec and the Maritime  provinces, should be done with  all possible speed.  Food   for Thought.  Here are some extracts about  the logical conclusions of reciprocity which Mr. MacDonald,  the Liberal candidate, avoided in  his Enderby address Monday evening:    -  Senator McCumber, of North  Dakota, says: '.'Canadian Annexation is the logical conclusion of  reciprocity with Canada."  Ex-Governor N. B. Bachelor,  New Hampshire says :���������������������������"The  only fair way for free trade to be  established would be  to let the  float' over  Stars and Stripes to  Canada."  The attitude of the press is un-  mistable. Occasionally an editorial'suggests that the.writer is  avlittle alarmed lest a Canadian  might hear' him thinking -aloud;  but as a - rule: there has been a  splendid-candour-about the musings of the scribes.  r The New York American, the  leading Hearst paper, thinks it  speaks for Canada: '-Eventually,  of course, Canada will come in."  That" will happen when we want  her; meantime, she is,'.-so to  speak, keeping herself for us in  colonial cold storage."  The Chicago Record-Herald has  no doubt about Canada' having  reached the parting of the ways.  "The people across the line recognise that Canada is about to  choose between Canadian and  American interests, and between  the Empire and the Republic."  ��������������������������� For Sale���������������������������Young     pigs,    six weeks  old.

Canada is dependent for its  lumber supply on the soft woods  of the forest much more than is  the United States, as seen from  the 1910 Forest Products report  compiled by the Dominion Forestry Branch, and shortly to be  published. Of the 1910 Canadian  lumber cut amounting to nearly  five billion feet, only one-twentieth consisted of hardwoods or  broad-leafed trees, worth barely  five million dollars ; on the other  hand almost one quarter of. the  lumber cut in the United States  consists of hardwoods, which  country had far greater hardwood forests than ever did Canada.

Richard McBride's government is   characterised as a  businessv government, and when  it comes to financing the country,  and the inaugurating of methods  looking to the development of  the province and the conservation of its natural resources, the  record of the government is proof  enough that its characterization  as a business government is well-  founded. "  However, there is a  phase of the government's policy  which does not show the advance  that may with reason be expected,  says the   Summerland Review.  We refer to the general road policy and the handling of the registration business of the prpvince.  In these departments the Government is simply perpetuating systems in vogue at the time Mr.  oMcBride took office,.and for many  years prior to that date, without  improving upon   them.    These  systems, no doubt, operated admirably when the Province was  young.   They were what was required in years that are passed.  But to-day they do not permit of  modern  improvement.     In   all  other departments of government  work^imprbvements have* been  and are being made, but( in the  matters of district road work and  the work  of   the   registration  oflice, the old systems still prevail. ...  At the7 present time the registration office at Kamloops is six  ' or nine months behind in its work.  Similar conditions prevail at the  coast.   If a paper is sent for registration it is received and the  date of its receipt is stamped  upon it.   It is then placed at the  bottom of the pile and isregis-  tered in its turn, which is six or  nine months later.   And'all the  . while the paper is-held off the  records, the title to the property  is more or less. in doubt. 7 If an  _errorTis discovered, in the ^ paper  when it is reached in its turn in  the pile; on the file; it is sent back  .for correction six.or nine months  after its receipt.   The correction  is made and the paper is again  sent to the Registration Office,  where it goes������������������to the bottom of  the pile again,  to be   brought  forth for registration six or nine  months later. If any information  is required regarding the title of  any particular piece of property,  such information is brought up to  the last paper registered���������������������������six or  nine months behind date-in spite  of the fact that there may have  been several transfers of the property of a more recent date.  In the matter of road-building  the system in vogue is quite as  out-of-date as that in the Registration Office.    Enormous sums  of money are expended annually  in the upkeep of old roads arid the  construction of new.  The money  is distributed through the various  government offices in the severalJ  districts.   A road superintendent  operating from each government  office has the general supervision  of all expenditures in the district  tributary to the government office.  So far so good.   But as a general  thing the road   superintendent  does not know any more about  road-building than the government agent, and the road foremen employed under him know  less, about it. ' These_road" foremen  are   usually farmers who  have  to  neglect  the  work on  their farms to take up the work"  on the roads.    The road work  lasts but three or four months  each year, and the general policy  is to make, the -government appropriation "spin out" so as to  give the road foreman and his  favorites work for the summer.  In this way the money is spent,  but real road work is not done  people were in a spirit to accept  any innovation.  The Government should, and  no doubt would, bring this road-  building proposition down to a  business basis if the people would  accept the innovation in the right  spirit. An experienced, practical,  road builder should* be employed  by the Government Agent, either  as superintendent of roads or as'  road foreman, whose duty it would  be to employ and discharge every  man working oh the roads in his  district, and  whose   tenure in  office would be measured, hot by  his political faith or pull, but by  the amount and character of road  work done by him or under him.  In this way the Government would  get the worth of its money in'  what it pays for-scientific road  building.   And the road work of  the province would be placed on  a business basis.   -  List it with me now,  before my new booklet  is printed.

It is what may be termed the  pap-system, a system that has  been m vogue in British Columbia  fpr many- years, and one which  the Hon. Thos. Taylor,1 as. Minis:  ter of Public .Works, would J no  doubt gladly do away with if the  :   The. Weekly Payment Plan.  The weekly payment plan affords wage-earners an easy "and  sure way of making provision for  the time when their earning powers have ceased.   For example,  if a man at present aged 40 years  were to deposit with the Canadian Government $1 a week until  he was 95 for the purpose of .buying a Canadian Government Annuity, he would receive $261 a  year for the; remainder of his  days.   And if he died before he  was 65, what he had paid in accumulated at 3 per cent compound  interest would be refunded to his  heirs. Full particulars concerning  the scheme maybe had by any  one over the age of five years if  he or she will apply to the Superintendent of Canadian Government Annuities,- Ottawa.

The story of Lhe development of  tho trans-Atlantic liner* is full of interest, and it is worthy of note that until  of late years, the growth iu size and  speed, if we except tho ease of the  "Great Eastern," has been by regular  nnd fairly even advances. Thus the  "Britannia," of 1840, 207 feet long, had  au average speed of 8.5 knots per hour.  Tho "Asia," or 1850, 20(3 feet long,  and of 12,5-lcnot speed, hud a gross ton-  nugo of 2.22(3. The "Scotia," of 1802,  :!71) feet long, and of M.4-kuot speed,  had a gross lounjigo of 3.871. Thc  " Bothnia,'' of 1874, wis 420 feet long,  had a gross tonnage of 4,550 and a  spcod of 13.8 knots. The "Servia," of  1881, 515 feet long, was of 7,392 gross  tonnage, and her speed was 1(3.7 knots.  The ������������������������������������������������������Ivcrnia," one of thc typo of  mixed cargo and passenger sliips of  moderate speed, which have now become  so popular, launched in 1900, was 5S0  feet long, had 4,027 gross tonnage and  a moderate speed of 15.25 knots. Tho  '���������������������������Campania," (500 feet long, of 12,952  tons gross tonnage, with a speed 'of 22  knots, launched in 1893, was tho first  vessel to reach a length of (300 feet between the perpendiculars. The "Gor-  onia," launched in 1905, was 050 feet  long, with a displacement of 20,000  tons. Thc first ship to pxeced a length  of 700 feet was the White Star liner  "Oceanic," whose length on deck was  704 feet. Then followed the "Lusitan-  i������������������" and "MauTetania," 790 feet in  length, of 33,000 gross tonnage, with respective sea speeds of 251/.' and 20  knots per hour, both of which sliips  'made their appearance about J907. And  now, in the "Olympic" and the sister  ship "Titanic,-" wo have the first vessels to exceed a length of 800 feet,  reaching, indeed, almost to the 900  feet length, while their gross tonnage  has gone up-to 45,324, and their displacement at maximum draft has reached  60,000  tons.  Although the "Olympic'* is not so  fast a vessel as the "Mauretania." she  is capable, when pushed, of a speed of  22 knots, und/like those vosscls, she  is, to all intents and purposes, a purely  high-class passenger ship. Although i't  is-possible lo'stow.in her hold .about  6,000 tons of freight, it is rarely that  '   s*ic" wilkcarry  more .than  about  2,000  tons, fo/her time in porl_will be almost  ..euliroly!-given up to coaling and getting  "ready the accommodations for her com-  -'pfomcnl of-over 3,000 souls, and 'caring  for  the  engines  and  boilers  necessary  _-,;lo?cnabloThor.-.<rdc\relop her .maximum  , .horse-power' of-50,000.        -" -   ".-   ..

What   these   are   may. be  ��������������������������� gathered" from   the   following -figures:  * .Length* on  deck-,' 8821/.;   feet;  breadth  , !>2i/j feet;.breadth over boat deck, 91  feet;* height', from   keel   lo  boat  deck,  - ������������������7 feet 4 inches.    At a draff, of 32 feet,  -which the vessel drew" on-entering the  harbor, the height of the boat deck-  above the water lino ia 02 feet 4 inches.  The height froni thc keel- to the roof  of the captain's house is- 105 feet 7  inches, and from t'hc keel to tlie top of  the funnels, 24 feet- in diameter, 175  feet. Including the floor of the ship  'at the double bottom, the vessel has 11  steel decks, and -her molded depth, that  ==is-=tthe���������������������������depth���������������������������to=whti:h���������������������������the^solid^stccT  plating "of the hull is carried tip ,siud  broken, is nearly 70 feet, or fully one  deck' deeper than that of any previous  ship. ITer gross registered tonnage is  4.1,324, and her nut tonna.ge 20,804.  When the ship is fully loaded to her  maximum possible draft, she will displace of weight, (3,000 tons.  Now, in view of the fact thai, thc  "Olympic" exceods the "MjiurotJinia"  _.by only-02 fool-in. length -and -by-4U.  feet in breadth, Iho fact that lier 'displacement is nearly 50 per cent, greater,  or 00,000 tons against, '15,000, needs  some explanation. The greater displacement is due to tho fact that the  model of the "Olympic" is very much  fuller, her sides for several hundred  feet amidships being practically parallel  ���������������������������the hull, indeed, consisting of a long,  parallel body, with a rather line entrance and delivery. This form is admissible in a vessel of 21 to 22-knots  speod; but when we come to vessels  driven at from 25 to 20 knots, as arc  the '��������������������������� Uisitania " and thc "Alauret-  anin," fineness of form becomes a prime  consideration, ft- is ;i fact that there  is scarcely a straight line to be found  in 'the nnderbody of thc two Ounard  liners. TfhJs fining down of the hull  reduces the displacement, and hence the  wide difference in the figures for the  White Star and the. Curia rd vessels.  The maximum 'horse-power of tho  "Olympic" is 50,000; that of the  "Mauretania," 80,000. This disparity  in horse-power is perfectly in keeping  with what we have paid regarding tbe  form of hull, displacement, and speed  of the two ships. High speed, after 21  knots has beon passed, is obtained only  by a large addition to the horse-power,  which, for.'the'same "vessel, incrensos as  (the cube of speed. Hence, in spite of  the finer lines of the "Mauretania," it  takes S0.000 horse-power to drive her  45,325 tons of weight through the  water at 20 knots, as against 50,000  horse-power to drive the 06,000 tons of  the "Olympic" at 21/knots.   As.a mat  ter of fact, the speeds quoted could be  obtained only ou . smaller draft and  lighter displacement, say about 40,000  tons for the " Mau rota n'ia" and 58,000  tons for the "Olympic."  The weights of various parts of the  "Olympic" necessarily runs to large  figuics. Tho largest plates on the hull  weigh 4������������������m tons; the rudder weighs J00  tons; the anchors, 15'/.. tons each; the  centre propeller, driven by tho turbine  engine, weighs 22 tons, and the two  wing propellers, driven by reciprocating  engines, weigh ISS tons each. The weight  of each link in thc anchor chain is 175  pounds.  The engine room plant of the "Olympic" embodies the latest ideas in marine engineering. Steam from the boilers is expanded down through the higher ranges of pressure in two reciprocating'engines, each driving its own propeller. , From the reciprocating engines  the steam is led to a large low-pressure  turbine, which drives directly a central  propeller. This combination secures a  more economical use of the steam than  is possible with an all-turbine plant.  Moreover, it permits the several propellers   to   be   driven   more   nearly   at  pose,..girders.- extending  from  the  keel  up through several decks.    7 .  Although wo are mainly concerned  with the technical features of tho  "Olympic," this article would, be incomplete without some reference to the  unusual accommodations, provided for  the comfort and entairtainment of the  passengers. In the first place, the deck  accommodations are superb, the boat  deck, between 00 and 70 feet above  the water, being singularly free from  ventilators, ��������������������������� deck engines and similar  obstructions. The bridge deck promenade alone is .550 feet long, and other  promenade accommodations through tho  ship are in proportion. The main dining saloon, whieh extends thc full width  of the ship, is over 90 feet wide by 114  feet in length, and it can seat 532 people. Beyond, and really forming part  of it, is a spacious lounge whore passengers may assemble before entering  the dining room. A notable feature  in this room is thc size of the windows,  each of which is lighted by two large  port holes, one above the other, the  light beiiifj softened by passing through  leaded.windows. The main lounge, fin  ished in light oak, is a superb room in  tho Louis XV. style, measuring 03 by  59 feet; and rivalling it in its pronations and magnificence, is a smoking  room of equal size. A notable feature  in these rooms is thc .use of large bay  win flows, filled with leaded glass, which  accentuates the effect which thoy pio-  duce of being large apartments in some  stately manor house of the older countries.

MONTENEGRIN HERALDRY  As the early pilgrims used to wear a  scallop shell in the front of the hat in  token of their having mado a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, so tho Montenegrins have adopted a national headdress which has peculiar significance..  It is no unusual thing to hear of  families where the position of bell-  ringer has been handed down i'or generations past. All the boll-ringing in  Mexico is done by band. Many of the  bells aro of such huge size and weight  that it requires a man above the average strength to ring them properly.  So frequently and regularly arc the  bells kept going that the ringers are divided into day and night shifts. Each  hour is tolled, and so well known are the  various chimes that it is quite unnecessary to carry a watch in Moxico, for  the visitor cau tell the timo at any  hour or the day or night bv listening to  the regular tolling.  Every tiny hamlet and village has its  church and one or more boll towers.  Accustomed as they are to the constaufc  ringing, it has got. beyond a' joke with  some of the local authorities,'who only  permit the sound of the bells once or  twice every hour. They had good reason to, for some of the churches used to  regularly toll the bell every five min-1  utes, saints' day or no saints' day.  WANTED���������������������������A NEW L'ENFANT.

An "interesting structural feature in  the ship is the special provision which  has been made for .strengthening her  long hull to resist the heavy bending  stresses to which it svill be subjected  when driving into a heavy so-i and  riding over the waves. .Some years ago,  in our issue of November 10th, 1900,  we made a study of some of the possible features which would be incorporated in tho future four-day liner, should  such a 30-knot ship ever make its appearance. Wo found that, to give a  ship of the great length required sufficient longitudinal strength, it would be  necessary to run a plate girder or bulkhead through the eon tie of the ship for  several hundred foot amidships, with  extra thickness of plating at- the top  and bottom of this girder, and also at  the top and bottom of the shell plating  of the vessel. It is interesting to note  that, the "Olympic'' has been strengthened by running four longitudinal girders through the ship for this same pur-  A THOUGHTFUL ACT.  Colonel Dobson was making his usual  daily tour of his preserves, inspecting  the gardens, both flower and vegetable",  and had how come to the live stock. As  far as the eye could sec everything  in the stables and the hams was in  shipshape order, and the Colonel was  somewhat inclined to compliment Ras-  tus ou the general condition of mattors  in his charge, but decided to withhold  final commendation until the chicken-  coop had been inspected. And here it  was that the only notable' shortcoming  was to be found. A careful count of  the spring broilers showed that thcr;  was one missing. The brood had hatched out some time before just thirteen  littlo chicks, and they had safely reached l,ho point where the Colonel's mouth  watered in anticipation of their immediate service upon the .tabic���������������������������' Throe  careful counts demonstrated beyond all  question that their number had beau reduced by one. Twelve broilers, and uo  more were there, and the Colonel turned  a cold eye upon .Kastus.

A CITY OF BELL-RINGERS.  Mexico can boast of an nnonviablo  record of wars and lumors of wars,  and, curiously enough, it cau also boast  of its peace-loving customs.  The most striking thing of Mexican  life to the casual visitor is the sound of  church bells. In the City of Mexico  alone there over two thousand boll-  ringers regularly cmployod. Every  saint has his day, and tho ringing of  bells is kept'up constantly on  occasions.  Tiie inhabitants of Mexico look upon  bell-ringing as an honorable profession,  and indeod bell-ringers are greatly  looked up to, chiefly on account of their  associations with the priests.  tho ancient burial places of Peru.- One  of these consists of two vases, whoso  bodies are joined one to the other, with*  a hole or opening between them. The  neck of one of these vases is closed,  with the exception of a small opening  in which a clay pine is inserted leading  to the body of the whistle. The closed  neck of this double vase is modeled into a representation of a bird's head.  When a liquid is poured into tho open-  necked vase, the air is compressed into  the (0ther, and in escaping through the  narrow opening is forced into the whistle, the vibration producing sounds.  Many of those sounds represent tho  notes of birds; one in the collection of  the P.ritish museum imitates tho notes  of the lobin or some other member of  tho thrush tribe peculia/to Peru.
