The .difficulty,,, heretofore   has   been   in   tho   bleaching,   as  the coloring-matter could not be eliminated  except by the  expensive caustic-  soda process.     This has now been obviated.      Bamboo has incontestable advantages  ovor other pulp material.    A  piece  of land  once  established  can   be  cut over annually for an indefinite period,   as   bamboo   in   the   tropics   grows  thirty feet or more yearly.      As it requires but a three-year period to establish a field, no other material ean compote  with  it.

With  thc  limited   resources   at  her  disposal,  is would, this journal believes, bo more  folly   for  her  to  try  to  keep  up  with  the opulent nations of the  West which  are'pouring  their  riches "into  tho   enlargement   of   their   navies.

The Asahi rc-  irards this departure as an  epoch-maU-  * ing event iu the .history of the Japanese navy, and says:  "ft is true that our experiences in  the late war benefitted us' greatly m  our-efforts to improve our battleships.  'I-ihus' the Satsuma and the Ala, built  after the war, were, at the time, oi. tne  most advanced type of battleship.

There is a large class of people who, the more kindly-  disposed fhey feel, the more do fhey persist in harrying tho  objects of their kindly interest. Everyone knows this  harrying treatment. Most of us have had experience of it at  some time or another at the 'hands of the most kindly and  best intentionod people in thc world. There is nothing wc  dislike more. Yet very likely, in blissful unconsciousness  wo are guilty of precisely the same thing ourselves.  If we truly love our neighbors (and we are told this is  our duty), it "is so difl'r'nlt not to harry. It requires tho  greatest care possible not to "harry" ignorant people when  we see them absolutely bent on courses wc are couvinced are  bad for them. The fresh air and open -window faith, for  instance, how ungrateful it often is to push this upon people  .who do'not believe in it, when visiting them. How unwelcome is the visitor who on entering a room at onco exclaims  against its stuffiness and fidgets till she can got some  draughts of outside air. An invalid may be present to whom  she. knows quite well that air is the one thing needful. But  must sho say so? Ought she to "harry" or leave the matter  alone? There is no answer. Each individual must do the  best that is possible under the circumstances. Harrying  generally implies fnssiness. Anyway, we can try lo avoid  that.  Children, t.oo.'tuc often harried. There are homes where  tho holidays are quite spoiled by harrying. Toys left about,  or hat,-, or papers or books arc confiscated if-discovered in  wrong place*.  Fines arc instituted-for small offences, too many rules  arc made, aud the childron are seldom lot alone. Ono of tho  bad things'about harrying is that if is liable to rouse temper  and opposition. On the whole, the happy-go-lucky 'homes  turn out better tempered children than thc harrying households. Well intentioned, .very conscientious) and excitable  pei.sons are thc most prone to become, so to speak/harriers.  Thev arc over impatient to put things right and do not pause  to sav to themselves, "I had better shut my eyes,to this  mistake,''-' or "This fault had better be passed over." Tt is  greatly a matter for tact.  One word is often as good, or better, than a dozen; it  may seem to fall on deaf ears at the time,-but you never  know. The very reticence and restraint of those,who nre  wise and silent," have often more power for good than  thc harrying'that was ever invented.-  HER SKIN WAS BELLOW    .

ENDERBY  At a meeting of the Enderby Conservative Association the past week-,  a committee was appointed to take  up the matter of Indian reserves with  similar committees selected from the  various associations in the Valley,  the object being to formulate between them a programme on which  the case as involving all the vacant  Indian land in the Valley could be  dealt with before the government  when it is newly organized. It is  believed that the difficulty that has  so long confronted the people in endeavoring to get the matter before  the Ottawa Government has now  been removed, as there must now be  harmony between the Provincial and  Dominion bodies," and the matter of  title should readily be settled.  If a general committee involving  all the sections of the Valley could  get together and formulate a case on  common grounds that they could  carry to the Government at Ottawa,  we believe the matter of reserves and  the better and fuller development of  the Indians could be settled in fairness to the, Indians and the districts  involved.  It is .(needless to go into an extended recital of the injustice and inequality of the Indian reserve question. , It is too well known. The  question to be considered is ho*w to.,  remedy these conditions with the object of bettering the Indian's condition and at thc same, time getting  white settlers upon the vast thousands of acres - of unoccupied reserve  land in the ��������������������������� various parts of the  Okanagan Valley.  There are obstacles, in the way, but  not insuperable obstacles. If they  are tackled rightly - they might be  overcome-with far less effort an'd delay than now seems necessary.  fied. He arrived on the scene sometime after 8. Then he went to find  somebody who could bleed the carcase before he would kill it. In the  meantime the injured animal was  tumbling about in the ditch in  agony. Sometime between 9 and 10  o'clock the animal was killed and  "bled". Then it was turned: over;  and the butcher found it was too-  badly bruised to be fit for the block,  and tbe carcase was lifted upon a  handcar and taken down the track  and buried.  ��������������������������� Many of the workmen in the mill  yard who witnessed the suffering of  the beast called upon the officer repeatedly to put the animal- out of  its misery. But the all-important  question seemed to be to find a  butcher who would "bleed" the carcase so as to get some of the meat  to the block to be sold to an unsuspecting public ���������������������������! The men did not  care to take the law in their own  hands, there being no Humane Society here, for they feared that such  intelligence as would permit such^in-  human suffering would be the first to  lock'a man up for" exercising his humane right.  Perhaps if there were a few arrests  made under the humane law there  would be a better understanding of  the law and its purpose.  that  Cold  NyaVs Pinol  Expectorant  Will give instant relief and  the cold soon is gone.

Enderby'  ITALY AT WAR WITH TURKEY  Italy has declared war on Turkey.  The reasons given by Italy are something    like   this:   Italy wants a sea  port known as Tripoli.     Tripoli is as  old as the hills: It was there two or  three centuries   before Christ's time.  It is connected with the surrounding  country    by   caravan    routes   and a  short tramway.       Tripolis is not as  progressive    under   the Sultan's rule  as Italy   thinks   it   would   be under  Italian rule.    Italy   sends a note to  the Sultan stating   that in 24 hours  Italy will take Tripoli and establish  Italian    rule   over   it and the territory tributary   thereto.   In 24 hours  the war, is on, and Turkish ports are  bombarded. Turkey.-knowi n g.she^is^  One cold wintry morning a man of  tall and angular build was walking  down a steep hill at a quick pace. A  treacherous piece of ice under the  snow caused him to lose control of  his feet. He began to slide and was  unable to stop.

'The meeting was sudden, and before either  realized it a collision ensued and 'both  were" sliding 'down hill, a grand ensemble���������������������������the thin man underneath, the  fat woman and bundles on top.

But  the demand is for something better.  This is. apparent   from the little in-  - terest taken in the fairs recently held  at Vernon and Armstrong. The exhibitors themselves seems to take  very little pride in their exhibits, and  the general public shot into the exhibition buildings-  and out again as  ��������������������������� rapidly   as   they" could complete the  ' circuit.  " Reason should, if it has not already, overcome the petty sectienal  jealousy that has existed in the past  much to the detriment of the Valley.  We should see that we are not doing  ourselves justice. A Valley so rich  in resources as the Okanagan should  have no difficulty in getting together  an annual exhibition that would  rival anything held at the coast  cities. We should have an annual  Central Okanagan exhibition that  would attract thousands "from the  Northwest and the Coast. It is of  far greater importance to this Valley  to have the hundreds come here to  see the fruits, and grains, the vegetables and ,,grasses, the live stock  and poultry, in"the land, where they  ; are  .produced,    than    for the thous-  r. ands to   see    them. in an exhibition  -hall" hundreds ��������������������������� of miles -" away and  amid surroundings not at all in keep-  * ing with, those of the rich Okanagan".  7 ' We understand the Provincial1 Govern! ent stands' ready to give a most  ;-~ liberal'grant towards such an'exhibi-  - tion, and would much prefer doing-so  : *    than to continue .the present urisat;  7 ���������������������������   isfactory   town   exhibits.   It  remains  . ' for^the various agricultural societies  y  .to- appoint' committeemen'to act. in'  conjunction   with. ��������������������������� committeemen * of  ,    "the various towns in the Valley'and  y- formulate some  plan' satisfactory ,to  .���������������������������* . all sections,   with'- the object of get-  tingrinto shape to start the first annual -Central. Okanagan- Exhibition.  We do not believe the majority of  people of the Okanagan care one whit  where the exhibition is held, so long  as accommodation can be provided.  At present there is not an exhibition  hall in the Valley large enough to  properly house a creditable Okanagan  Exhibit. But    this    is   a    small  matter. Our needs in this direction  can readily be supplied. The first  thing necessary is to decide on the  question of one Central Okanagan  Exhibition, and where it should be  held. The matter of accommodations  will follow. For a few years at  least, it would seem that Vernon  should be the point selected.- The  Vernon agricultural park is ideally  situated, and the matter of accommodations would more readily adjust  itself there than at any other point  in the Valley. A few years later,  the demands of the Valley may be  for a change, but ^ these * changes  should not be more frequently than  once in three or five years.  Would it not be wise to meet and  select a committee made up of delegates from each of the agricultural  societies, the purpose of the committee being to go fully ��������������������������� into the  question and decide upon a policy  .which afterwards could be referred  back ,to the societies for their approval. If anything is to be done  to be in readiness for next year,*' it  should be done this Fall.  F.'G. Maclnnes, Vernon, B.

Whether  this argument was needed or not,  there is no question that it is true.  Nothing in all our varied and fascinating range of fruits holds quite the  same quality as the apple. A raw  ripe apple, at its best, is digested in  85 minutes, and the malic acid which  gives it its distinctive character,  stimulates the liver, assists digestion  and neutralizes much .obnoxious matter which, if not eliminated, produces eruptions of the skin. "They  do cnot satisfy like potatoes,'', some  people have said to whom they have  been recommended" as food; but the  starch of the potato, added to the  surplus of starch we are always eating, renders it undesirable as an article of too frequent consumption.  The more fruit we add to our dietary  the clearer brain and clearer skin we  are likely to have.  COAL !  COAL !  I am prepared to fill orders'-for  domestic coal; large or small ;quanti-  ties.

A handsome outward appearance is of no value, unless it  has the sterling material underneath to back it up. "  It is the care taken in this  particular that makes.the "Fit-  rite" a good suit all through.  The hidden parts are.given the  same attention the surface receives. It retains its shape because ;the shaoe and style are ���������������������������  built right into it.  Look over a  "Fit-rite" suit  and examine the qualitg of the  material and tailoring.

On  the gatepost  ii  lirs.RK plate "reads:  THE   HA MHOUKC  CONSERVATORY   OF   MUSIC  A circular just issued announces that  the. head of t.bc conservatory is Professor .Michael Hambourg, in charge of tho  piano department. The violin faculty  is to be in the care of Mr, Jan Hambourg; and the cello tuition is to be  (lone by Mr. Boris Hambourg. Certain  local instructors arc to be retained in  various other branches of music. A  senior leather of vocalisrn may be imported from Italy. This is the beginning.  Tin- object.; of t)>e new conservatory  aro stated by the Profossor himself: to  add to a general tuition in music the  culture which in most cases.is obtained  only by paying high fees :i: Leipsie or  Vienna; *o impart such aa 'education  in the art of music a.s depends largely  upon tbe Bpirit of interpretation in the  technie. Which [ suppose is the intention and very frequently the avowed  aim ef all colleges and corisorvatorifs  of 'iiiisic. Only it happens that tbe  Hambourg Conservatory has in the  three Ilnrnbourgs not merely one music-  exponent of the fwst, ran1;���������������������������but three;  uhich even in European conservatories  is not. common.  However, this article concerns mainly  the Hembourgs themselves. The conservatory idea may be left to work out,  in conjunction with other conservatories and colleges already established  in the interests of musical art in Canada. Reasons why the project should  succeed will be bettor stated when success has been assured, and the gradually widening world of music in Canada  begins lo trace the movements that  have made Canada somewhat of a musical   country. '  Perhaps there is in America no other'  city of "four hundred 'thousand people  that has already done so much in music  development as Toronto. Very many  timos the writer of this article has  praised in print the organizations aud  then men that have caused the press to  recogniM Canada as something more  worth while in a scheme of reciprocity  than the matter of wheat and cattle. 1  don't suppose the. Hambourgs ever  would have settled in -Toronto a year  ago if they,had not been assured that in  this rather quiet city, so long a centre  of education and industry, there have  been developed some conditions of true  -music. -They would- not" have considered :uiv city" in Canada a fit place for  "their particular field of art if Toronto  had not contributed more to-the cause  of music than mere imporlinghigh-class  orehostras and vocalists and opera companies from the United-States.. Canada has hciruti to be'a production-centre  in musical art. The coming of the  Ilambonig family is one moro. recognition of (ho fact.    - '".'.'  You might know liim by his big  shoulders  aud   his  bear's grip  to  be  a  the  quite amusing���������������������������-to hear what'a'lady in  ihe front row was saying about me."  It. must, be remembered that the great  music of his boys dates back to the fact,  itiat tl.ij Professor lia.������������������ leniurkably good  t'rr-; aad as hc sat playing one of his  dub-el soft pedal passages in a Romanza  ui  Schubert he overheard a lady  f;  in  the  rent  row whisper to her companion:  pure Russian���������������������������Mi eh a el Hambourg,  musician, The. not very old father of  musicians, including Mark of the piano,  Jaw oi life violin, and Boris of the  'cello. Now about a year ago the  three of these along with the mother,  two daughters and a lad of ten, speaking among them four languages, came  lo "Canada���������������������������nnd settled in Toronto.  They came from London, where for  twenty years and more Michael Ham-  bourgj' born in Yaroslav. south Russia,  had "been known as a once pupil of Rubinstein. Tscbaikowsky and Les-jhetil-  zky: where three of Lis family were  born and were Mark still lives when  lie conies home from piano tours that  .���������������������������over,_ niosr.. of. the ____'_]_]__*(_ and  half o������������������  'Snctin venerable-looking man!   And  they say he has a lad of only ton."  Which lad hy the way when he grows  up v.'i'J also be a musician; unless he  imbibes the American tendency to  make money bet ore he is old enough  to learn an. ,  dust the other day the Professor picked up a cony of Punch at ihe club;  and he came with a chuckle to show a  bourg���������������������������he*e in Canada*? When is ho  going back?" ,,  ,. t  "hack where?"  " Well���������������������������wherever he came from.  Really���������������������������I never knew Mark Hambourg  had any antecedents."  In London, of course, the Professor  lived quietly. lie played but seldom  in public���������������������������which he might have done  more. Once since coming to' Canada  he has played at a concert. That was  in a small city of Ontario wet-f. Speaking of it afterwards he said:  "Oh, it, was for a moment or two  lary specialist who has subjected Mr.  Bamberger to au exhaustive examination. ''  The ra-t of the. article was a deal of  good-natured but. elegant' "gulf ���������������������������" on  the real condition of the famous shock  of hair, winding up thus: "The rumor  that Mr. Bamberger would be obliged  to wear a wig is a dastardly falsehood. ''  Of couise the editor of Punch is a  very good friend of.' Mark aud both are  members of the Savage Club, where  Michael still keeps up his membership.  In one of the rooms of the Arts and  Letters Club iu Toronto hangs a cartoon generously given by the Professor; done by the canonist Thackcry  aud called "The First Pianist," to  commemorate a Saturday* dinner of the  Ravage Club at which Mark-was chairman. In prehistoric garb the pianist  sits on the floor of the woods; in front  of him a keyboard of bones wliich with  some gusto he, pounds witb a pair of  Savage  Clubs,  while   from   behind   thc  had  to  vou  produce   playing   such   as   his   ot   any  of the great masters of piano."  The Professor went on to tell how  that at'the age of'ton young'Mark played before the brother of the Czar���������������������������thc  Grand Duke. That would be when the  father was professor at the Imperial  School of Music at Voronej���������������������������-or perhaps later when he was professor at  the Mos'eow Conservatoire. The lad  was a bit nervous; and when he  played bjs piece" he-was .presented  the Duke,-who wanted to know:  "Now, my boy, what can I  send  for a gift?1'  "May it please your Excellency���������������������������I  think I should like an enerine," said  the lad.  .Next flay came a large toy locomotive  bearing tlie inscription: "Prom his Excellency the Grand Duke of Russia to  his  Excellency of the piano. "  .Four years later before the great  Anton Rubinstein, young Mark played  a Toccata and Pugue of Bach. ' So delighted was "Ruby"' that, he took the  young man to an inner room and introduced him ro Tsehaikowsky, Rosenthal  and other elect of the piano' predicting:  "This young man, gentlemen, is io  become the modern .genius of the  piano. '���������������������������'  Old Anton is dead now. He with his  brother Nicholas were the great modern reformers of Russia along the interpretative, side in music: Anton at  Lhe Kt. Petersburg Conservatory and  Nicholas at Moscow���������������������������the two capitals.  Por a year Professor Hambourg took  instruction in piano from Anton, and  three years  from  Nicholas at Moscow.  " Nicholas���������������������������not   so   well   known     a.s  Anton," he  er  pianist:  gone. Paderewski was a frequent visitor at the Hambourg. house in London.  Rosenthal he knows as a close friend.  De ������������������������������������������������������ Pa'chmaim���������������������������himself ��������������������������� a Russian���������������������������  concerning this poetic gargoyle of thc  piano the Professor says:  "Ah! I met him once uot so long  ago and began to talk to him in Russian.      He replied to mc in German to  do   not   speak   that  pig'  So queer a man he is,  ���������������������������  Ian-  Pa ch  in  say���������������������������' J  guage.'  rnann."  Recently  has made a bust of acquaintances. Last  winter when llie suicide of Phillips left  a vacancy at the head of the piano department in (he McGill Conservatoriuin,  Montreal   the   Professor  of acquaintances.  ,savs, "but an  even  t: so modest, a man that he  like tn travel as Anton did  TO'uaiiied   comparatively     ob-  trees other Savages look in upon the  concern���������������������������and their signatures scrawled  at random over the face of the cartoon make up the names of 'men celebrated in the world of art,  The - Professor, is: naturally fond of  telling stories about .Mark, of whom  ���������������������������be is' as proud in a" modest way as  any. man can be.of a son really great  in aid. A, few months ago' Mark went  on a tour of France playing in most  of fhe hubs of culture where a great  a:tisl i.s about as common as a real  estate man in Winnipeg. It would take  half a page to retail half the eulogies  he got on this bis latest big tour; but.  a ��������������������������� particularly interesting example  member what Owen Seaman, editor of  Punch, had to say in the best part of  a. column concerning  mv  Europe. So rhat you find all tlie young  er    llambourgs    speaking    English    as  "Mr. Bamberger's Cbevelure"  "Seo what they have said about  poor boy���������������������������eh?"  The article went   on  to say:  "Thc sensational rumors to which  currency has been given in the press  as to the condition of the chevelure of  Mr. Bamberger, the famous pianist,  have naturally caused great anguish to  his countless friends and admirers in  both hemispheres.  We are more than glad therefore to  be able f.ojmblish the following highly  toassuring pronunc.iatniento issued by  Mr. Diysham Pugh. tbe famous capil-  comes   from   La   Depcche.  published   at  Tonlousej   ~~^TTTe "  fluently and with as good diction as tbe'  most, educated Londoner >iy birth. Oth.er-i strength   united   with   what     lightness!  virtuoso of this fourth concert  was Mr. Mark Hambourg. What a  marvelous  pia.nist!     What   fire!

Now it is tolerably certain that Win  iiipeg-- quite without jealousy of Toronto or anv other score���������������������������may reasonably or;-.y the capital of Ontario the  ciliVcn.'hi'p of su remarkable a lamily  of-musical-ineii. -It is highly piobabh.  that, by this time Toronto has become  i.Of*ri!op"olitan enough to reckon Michael  l.air.houric and hi' boys welcome mem  hers of a community which for t wenty  vears and moie has'bcoii forging ahead  so rapidly in 'musical an. Whenever  the Professor comes gallivanting down  Yonge Street from his studio to the club  where. In- lunches e\urv day be fairly  bristles with cosmopolitan enthusiasm  about the land of glorious sunlight and  _,<:ri.sp, bracing air that makes you feel  "ten years younger than when he lived  in the London fogs. Of course he has  never been in the west; though his eld  est bon has played the piano in nearly  every burg of conse-qucuec between  Ke.nora and Victoria.  "Ah! it. is a glorious climate,'' says  he. "Such a light! Such an atmosphere! Tt, is like wine"���������������������������and down he  sits at the club piano made in Canada,  and straightway begins to make  as though old "Ruby  the ivories again.  Among the men of the Arts ami  tors Club there, is no man there  one of the boys than tbe Profossor.  is a perfect Bohemian; wears his  a trifle, long, smokes cigars with  gins to.' laughs with the depth of a  who by a splendid physique and u  of study in a great art has been tuned  to perfect ontirniwn.. Any visitor to  the club, glancing over the men that  oat there more or less regularly, observes the Professor as a dominant figure and says: ._ . .  "Who  is    the    distinguished-looking  elderly man with the big shoulders. "  "Oh, that's  "Wha���������������������������at?  Mr. Hambourg literally da'/./.led his  audience. Under his (jngers the old  Gavottnc of Rnmeaii shone with a brilliancy as. seductive as the demoniacal  Polonaise of ('lioniri. His concerto  of Beethoven with the orchestra was  stupendous.*''  _To_c.oiTi(i. closer home. .-for.  have  some   criticism   in   Canada,  Mark's   last-year   tour   of   Canada  :t  feel  bad:  at  Let.  like  He  hair  real  man  life   ���������������������������������������������  Father of  Mark Hate  wc  concerning  the  Montreal*Star says:  "The power to produce overwhelming masses of gorgeous tone, to pile climax noon climax until one feels the  /iiial climax will never come, the unique  mastery of technique���������������������������all the qualities  which stamped him great before are  still  prominent."  Many Wiiun'peggorj. who did not. hear  Mark last, year may have read this  oiilo_jv from The Telegram of Maich  20th':"  " Hambourg's playing is petulant or  pensive, emotional or living, it laughs  or cries, sings or complains, sighs or  whispers, just as he chooses to interpret. Sounds of liquid sweetness, of  silvery clearness, of weird longing, of  fiery vehemence, are emitted in wonderful succession; the accuracy of bi.s  execution, his wonderful use  pedal are hard to do justice to  type."  And   if anybody <-an  explain  isf, like that, it should be his own father,  who sometimes says quite without egotism:  "Impossible! Believe me I. do not  say he is great because he is uiy son.  Rut L havo studied him as T. have done  all the great pianists."  "Put yon believe he inherited some  of his genius, don't, you?''  "Ah! But pieces which when I was  grown up and a student of piano I  had to work days and days to learn, he  at the acre of ten or eleven got them  after half a do7.cn trials. So T think  perhaps. I worked for hini. But it  takes a  great, many things together to  of  tbe  in cold  pian-  did nor,  and so  seme.''  The Professor 'recollected a story  concerning Nicholas and the great  genius Tschaikowsky. from whom nt  the Moscow Conservatoire he took harmony and counterpoint. JA symphouy  of Tschaikowsky was to be performed  at the Conservatoire by an orchestra  of students, augmented by some professional players in the city at large.  Rubinstein was to conduct and Ignace  the great was to listen. When it came  time-for the last rehearsal and. Rubinstein went, to thc desk, it was discovered that the side drummer had not yet  turned up. _. Now a smypbony of-Tschaikowsky without a drummer would  have been as good as a thunderstorm  without--lightning.  "What shall we do then?" queried  Nicholas of the genius-who taught harmony���������������������������quite the strangest-sort of music  man j_ver produced in Russia.  The elder Hambourg, sitting by Tschaikowsky listened shrewdly to hear how  Ignace would suggest a way out of-.the  difficulty. Not by omitting the drum  parts?    Assnred'y not. " *���������������������������'  ���������������������������''Ah! Then i will myself {day the  drums," said Tschaikowsky. "-  Nicholas laughed.  ������������������������������������������������������  "Very   good,"     said   he.       "But  'I  know,  Mr.  Tschaikowsky,  that-if -you  do  so   you   will  be  coming  in  wheu   f  do not want you, perhaps." ..  Tschaikowsky smiled.- To" the" amazement of students .and faculty he went  up and took his place at thc end of  the band; carefully tuned the drums  and fixed his curious eyes on Rubinstein at the baton. He had no score.  Por why���������������������������when he himself had made  the symphony?  They goi along very well until the  drum part was nearly reached. Then  the great Tschaikowsky, either impatient or nervous or wanting a joke, came  down upon the drums in thunder.  Tn the astonishment of ;ilj Rubinstein  rapped the whole aggregation lo a  standstill. Casting a humorous look  at- the genius with the drums he said:  ".Just as J told you,  sky:   you   have   come,  soon.       Now  we  rnusi  Well,  well."  Russia is teaching " much of the  world's art. Away back in that huge  conservatism of a laud where the mon-  jik plods his unenlightened way and  Tile FnTa re ll i^f^iifuylvs^li is^lxTfrf bs i nfo  the Jap of despotism, they have kept  somehow alike the fires of art. Russia ha������������������ long been most distinctively  national in music. Por a long while  she resented Wagner. But Tschaikow-  s*ky built his great nation-music upon  Wagner���������������������������and   Russia.  ���������������������������  Tt was the earliest tour of,Mark in  England���������������������������1890���������������������������thnt sent the elder  Hambourg with his three boys and one  daughter to London.,. For twenty,years  he was professor of piano at the London Academy and the Guildhall School  of Mus.ii.; and he has credentials from  most of the big player men of the  piano, who know well how sound are  his teachings and how thorough a musician he is; such men as Paderewski,  Rosenthal.  Moritx  and   Lcsehetit/.ky.  Of course, the Professor docs not pretend to play the piano in comparison  with Mark. Put one may listen to  liim and be convinced that the man is  a big poet in music: one who makes  technie the mere handmaid of temperament. It makes little difference what  sort of piano the the boys of a midnight hour introduce him to, He will  play on a funky little upright a Rhapsodic of Liszt or a Nocture of Chopin.  "Candidly, professor." he has been  asked, "do you think Canadian makers  oan produce a concert grand piano capable of doing justice to the tremendously big things of Beethoven and  Chopin?'"'  Ah, my dear boy! it is not so much  thc piano. ft is the man who plays it.  You may get cold playing from the  best, piano in tho world���������������������������if the player  himself is out warm; if he does not  realize that iu fhe making of tone the  technie must go along with thc temperament and the sense of tone."  Such things might easily be said by  a novice; but the novice docs not sit  down to your piano and demonstrate  that even "in a three-hnndred-dollar upright there arc tone-possibilities worth  while. The Professor knows intimately all the. great figures that are producing tone and poetry from the piano  as   well   nn   some   who   are   dead   and  asking  , Mr. Tschaikow-  in one bar too  go   back   again.  much     of  Processor Hambourg was chosen to succeed. He was paid what many European professors would ha ve'regarded a  good yearly salary for just two days  in fhe week. The Monlrealers would  have him settle theie. But lie prefers Toronto. Ifo has given up the  McGill post for the sako of his new  ' lonservalory.  Now. we have known something of  certain sorts of European magnates of  music iu Canada. And we have heard  hero-worshippers rave about, sueh demigods; when they had paid many a good  dollar just to be occupying a room in  the same city���������������������������Vienna or Leipsie or  Berlin; much as the great Wagner himself raved and romanced about his fabulous pilgrimage to Vienna to see  Beethoven. But, there has been a  deal of buncombe about the virtuosi of  the long hair; and it is refreshing to  meet a man who while he has claim to  be considered among the. world's mas-  'ters in-piano culture is himself one of  lhe most linipidl.y humanistic of men,  interested simply in telling and showing  anyone what he knows about thc piano.  One night, at his club in Toronto a  number of after-meetingers conclaved  I'or an impromptu programme just as  the cathedral clock was hammering  twelve. His son dan played two or  three things on the violin: two or three  other members s.ang, and recited and  told stories: and in thc midst of it  the Professor, who had been Leaching  most of the day and was now a bit  sleepy, began fo doze. His son walked over to liim and look him by the  shoulder.  .Instantly ihe Professor walked to  the piano and played two pieces.  "Ah!     I   thought,  you   were  me to play," he said when he had finished.  He is always ready to help along thc  merriment of an evening. In his own  house.���������������������������lie is tho genial head of! the  family about whom they all gather as  natural as juveniles. Here is none  of thc grand.manner. With perennial  enthusiasm they- assemble���������������������������twoi' boys  arid the father���������������������������violin, -'cello and piano,,  to play trios for any chance droppors-  in. With what perfect unanimity! If  is a touch of thc time whon Bach  gathered his little band of: .musicians  for the great Frederick of Prussia. N"o;  it is not"necessary "to" argue that" any  Hambourg is as great, as Bach; nor is  it pretended that all of-them together  class: with a Chopin. Por they are not  composers but interpreters; each on his  chosen instrument.  The second son,t.Jan. who lias" taken  up the violin, might pass mainly for a  pure Englishman from* Piccadilly. He  was born in Voronej. Having been  something of au "ambulant musician"  as he styles himself, he has seen most  of Europe. He has played in several  of the largest centres; serious heavy programmes that could have been done by  none but-a master of the fiddle.  Jan is a disciple of Ysaye and Kieis-  Icr. the two great Belgian virtuosi" and  teachers. Rather more of Ysaye than  of KYcislor perhaps; though I fancy  that in his actual playing he inclines  to approximate to Kreislcr���������������������������which as a  matter of.fact, he does. Personally I  would as lief hear him as Ysaye���������������������������  though that may be rather an incomplete reminiscence of the great Belgian. Kreislcr is a bigger artist; but  Jan is still but twenty-egbt, and if he  had a mind to subject himself body  and soul to the fiddle might easily rival  the Belgian,  ���������������������������Pi r_>l=t-i miH-niel-f-h c-maiHi e-wa s-pu fr=  ring in an hour or so every day with  a den lev on Yonge Street, testing old  violins; coat off. collar and tic discarded,  handkerchief  stuffed  down   his  J si  grown fiddle is perhaps as big an art-1  ist as Mark on the piano. Now, the,  'cello is not thc most sought-after instrument . in the world; and all.told  there.'ire living today about' half a  dozen men whose performances on the  'cello entitle them to laudation at thei  hands of critics.  .  Of that coterie Boris .Hambourg  one of the leaders. Gerardy never  played ������������������������������������������������������ better than Boris did whon hei  was heard privately by a few score  Torontonians last winter. Perhaps  Gerardy seldom plays as well. Boris  did a tour under American management last, season. Several times appearing iu solo recital in New York he  got large half-column bouquets handed  iii in by Pinck of the Evening Post and  Henderson of the Sun.  lie played with the Theodore Thomas'  Orchestra in Chicago and with tho Boston Symphony  in   Boston.

He   differs   from   Jan   in   on<.������������������  important  item:   he smokes  cigarettes^  Recently   he   had   some  escapades  get-j  ting  his   'cello  back  into Canada  pasil  the  customs;   though   he  had   taken   itj  over iu  the winter.      The trouble wasf  though  it  was  undoubtedly  the    sarin  'cello that he had'lugged across in per-1  son before, it was in a different case.  ������������������������������������������������������Rather a novel experience boiii'i  travelling companion to a violin-cello,'f  i suggested.

"Well, what's yours worth?"' A  scandalous question; bnt how else is a  Philistine to know flu. value of a  fiddle?  "   "   "Five thousand dollars," he said  abruptly.  "Well, will you play that live thousand dollar fiddle for me���������������������������in a little pri.  vute programme without charge?"  After explanation that if was uo public appearance, but merely an occasion  of bonhomie in art among a crowd of  art workers, he consented with enthusiasm. We arranged a rehearsal with  Prank Wclsman as accompanist. Only  a rehearsal; but being the side listener  1 liked it bettor than most performances. The "Trill du Diablo" was  one of the pieces; and it rained like  the devil while he was playing.  "Hear me!" he said when it was  all over and the rain was-only half  down tlie programme. "Mark told mc  this country was so delightfully crisp  and dry."  "Probably Mark meant Winnipeg at  forty below."  To my surprise he left his Amati.  "AIM  have in the world," he said.  Considerable of .1 play fiend is Jan���������������������������  being from London. An omnivorous  reader of French literature, ho speaks  four languages and plays tennis as rigorously as he does the fiddle. Also,  ho has a loud contempt for baseball.  Not long ago a musician lately from  Winnipeg took him over to the Island  to see Toronto wallop Rochoster. This  ex-Winnipegger expected to make a fan  of Jan.      But he didn't,  "I prefer cricket���������������������������much," he said  afterwards.  All of which has nothing to do w'ch  fiddling; neither with Boris Hambourg,  the   'cellist,  who on  his sombre, ovcr-  a  cigarette,  suppose you hand it over to    thJ  porter who stands ii, up in the smokinj  room?"  Ho took' another whiff.  "1 fake it into my berth."  "Oh! Give it an upper?"  "No.      J. sleep with il.      Whv, whai  else could  I" do?"  The way Boris got this travelling  companion throws considerable light orl  the interesting byways of the 'cello an J  the "eolloit.es. Owing to tho Tarity ofl  old makes there had arisen a school oi\  makers who gave out that they kner'  how to make 'cellos quite as well'asl  old Stradivari ns ,or Cappa of Cromoha.  In order to prove that they were not!  romancing there was-arranged ,in Parisff  a competition among /cellos. Severn'^  old- makes, were produced and as manjl  new ones..' A "jury" of one hundred j  critics was empanelled. Behind .'-ai  screen' one" after" a nothcr _; the -":.

But the!J  winner was a new 'cello.  "'Well���������������������������and you  straightway bought  a vnew one?" Boris was asked.  "Ah!    Not so soon. .   But I got the"]  use   of   one   to   try  it   out.       Well,   I.  player!  that   ''cello  for three  hours, at  once.      At  first  it amazed  me  by fits  wonderful tone. "���������������������������  "But you found  on closer acquaint-,  a nee ?"    /  '''That it had very many defects,, ft.  was able to .give a fine first impression*.  But ir would not, wear." Of course,  1 was sorry to find that out, because I  could have got the new one for a thousand dollars. My Cappa cost me five  limes as much. But .1. would not exchange it: for any number of., the new  makes."  Recently Boris was party to a lively  argument, with JPhilip^Hale, of Boston,  TTTT^VIfc-t'fiffus^Jf-fhe "'cello "  instrument,  the  as a  solo  Mr.   Hale  had  said  that  range  of  expression   in  tho   'cello  was very limited  in comparison to the  violin.       Boris   proved,   however,   that   '  the   V.ollo  range  is  oven  greater;  and  he   predicts  that,   in  future  there  will  be a   marked  reaction  in  favor of the  'cello.       Of   course,   that   depends   on  how far the violin  method can be applied to the 'cello.     Ysaye taught him;  using.the_violin_aiid_thc_violfl._.l.Next .  fo  his  own  teacher, Hugo Becker,  he I  owes most to Ihe Belgian violinist for (  the discovery of howT to mako thc big/  semi-weird   instrument  as  humanly  in-i  terestini.' as the violin.     Tho reason thrj  'cello   lnij.   always   been   secondary   tot  the  violin   in  expression  is because  ������������������������������������������������������"'}  many   players   treat,  it   as  a   sort     of *>  freak instrument.  "Tli.it i.s a great mistake," he said.  "The 'cello is a rnarvelously expressive  instrument. But it's fho violin method  applied to thc 'cello that humanizes it.  The reason so few people care to listen  long to the 'cello is becauso so much  music has been written for it that  brings out only its weird qualities. Por  some time 1 have boon digging up old  Italian pieces in manuscript that were  written when the 'cello was in its infancy.      Why they are magnificent!"  He spoke of a 'cello quartette somewhere; which T should fancy a weird aggregation���������������������������but he says it isn't.  "Of course, you must .remember,"  he said, "the range in a 'cello is six  octaves; which it, almost, as great as a  piano.'''  Boris is as yet only a- hoy���������������������������born in  1SS4 in Voronej. He began his musical education in London at the ageof  eight -.afterwards sent to 'Frankfort and  Hugo Becker; hero he mot Joachim���������������������������  much impressed by the lad's playing.  At twenty years of ago ho made his-  first appearance in London; a year lat **  in Berlin. Ho has since played iii mc.

Construction  No man is better known in the  West than Sir William Whyte, and  no man is more a typical Westerner  than the same Sir William. In a  recent interview in the Winnipeg Tel-  egram, Sir William had something  interesting to say about the beginning ,of things with the C. P. R.  "It seemed   that there was always  something new cropping up," said he.  "The engineers   who had the cutting  of the mountains    for the- road were"  always having   worries real and ins-  aginary, and there were many councils of war held to discuss the grievance.     A vast wilderness had to be  remodelled practically, the Blackfoot  " Indians had    to   be pacified and the  gangs of men along the line had to  be kept in good humor, and this was  " the   beginning   of   the C. P. R.     It  called for a level head, a large heart  and a student of human nature to do  the nice   adjusting   of all these diffi-  ' culties, and  Sir   William Van Home  was the man of the hour who engin-  - eered the C.P.R. over so many rough  places in its early history.  "I consider that it is one of the  most lamentable of things in the  records of the C.P.R. that the history .of the construction of the road  has never been written. No one  knows the human side of the building  of the C.P.R. as does Sir William  Van Home, and I have askeld him  ,many times, to take from his collection of reminiscences all the matter  that pertained to this road and the  roa'd builders. I. am looking forward to the appearance' of these reminiscences as will everyone else who  has played a part in the up-building  of the West.      , ������������������ "~  "Perhaps'one of the features of* the  West that lingers particularly in my  mind is the   buffalo "bone collectors  who   were' scattered _all    over- the*  plains for so   many years ^ gathering  and burning. with    so   little care of  property or concern for _ the, comfort  l,6t -the'-���������������������������dwellers, of- /the; plains; the  . bone'^bf the kings of the wild prairie,"  -the buffalo. ,.-.-"       . '   '���������������������������  y .-  ���������������������������.."In  talking .over the early history  ; of the. country';' one' hears - the remark  constantly,' the climate of the West  in changing. It is not as cold now  as it .was thirty years ago, etc'  "Well, the climate of this' great  Western Canada has not changed an  iota. Conditions have . changed.  More land each year is brought under the plow, houses are built, cities  spring up and the hard frozen ground  is cleared of stubble.  "In the   building   of   the road we  had trouble off ,and on with tramps  ! who came   up here   from across 'the  line.     One   particularly hot summer  ��������������������������� a large gang   of   these men giot out  through the West and became such a  , nuisance    that   we   had   to get the  i Northwest Mounted Police to take a  {hand    in   driving   them    out of the  country. -    > *  "There is   nothing I enjoy more,"  concluded' Sir   William,  "than to sit  down and go back to the West. The  days when-the C.P.R. had a struggle  to meet its   pay :day, and when the  temperament of-its construction engineers had to be nurtured like a hot  house- plant.      And   as I look back  and    recall   the- struggles    and the  troubles   encountered,  and the troubles    averted,   I   feel   that   to have  helped even   in   a   small way was a  privilege   and' an   honor.      For we  have a great empire here in the West  in its infancy even to-day."  help Pido if his mistress will give  him over to his (the veterinarian's)  care for a week or two.

A thunder shower at one o'clock generally means the postponement iint.il  the next, day, while morning showers,  continued over a period of the race  meeting, means that there arc no races  and no" gate money, and that the association has to stand the .total" loss. Not  onlv is it hard on the secretaries and  fhe" associations, but it hard on tbe  horsemen, for they have beeu under  great expense, to ship their stables to  the place of meeting, only to be' disappointed.  Had weather has put more than one  association to the bad, even when thc  afternoons have been pleasant enough  to allow almost any other kind of sport  io go on uninterruptedly. Patrons "of  the. runners do not have io figure on  the weather; fhey know the horses arc  goiny to run. rain or shine, muddy  tracks or dry.' Tn Huropo thc same condition hold good with fho light harness  horse,, for" tlie tracks there nrc-^so. constructed ��������������������������� that racing 'is possible even  while.tlie rain i.s'descending in heavy.,  showers. Some of the hhiropban tracks  aro constructed of .brick and this, surface is covered' wiflra* cushion of sand.  ���������������������������While it would seem to' the average  , America a trainer that this kind of.  track would sore the horsos, those who  have had experience in Kurope say that  such is not the case, nnd that thc small  sand cushion effectually prevents till  soreness, and that lameness is not more,  common  than  in  this  country.  fn discussing this subject recently,  llcnrv Al. doiics, of Lexington, ivy.,  called attention to the fact that.on one  of the roads ���������������������������inside of the Kentucky  Trotting Horse. Breeders' Asoeiafion  grounds'at Lexington is an .oiled stretch  covered with n light cushion of eiudcrs,  and that 'it has been possible alU-wititer  past'to train the horses over il and to  "stop them for their lives." This recalled to the mind of J'Vank Fit/.patrick,  who conies from S'an Francisco, that  one of the roads leading out of the city  runs along the .ocean, and, as is cus-  tomarv in that State,, the road 1ms  been oiled. A portion of it runs near  the sand dunes where the wind has  WV^-mM-r^nth^t^slightHriyer-of^sand?  It is this section, of fhe road that is  most patronized by the road drivers,  ami it is on this part that many impromptu brushes fakes place. The tond  is alwavs in condition regardless of  weather! aud it is always possible to  step the horses at top speed without  any injury to them.  Profiting by the experience of the  Kiiropean track managers and by the  instances just mentioned in jhis country, it would" seein" as "though "sonic  association having much al stake could  well afford to go to the expense of  oiling the track nnd covering it with  a cushion of sand. Once oiled, the  i.unsliiut. every-day expense of watering the track would bo done away with  and it would lake but comparatively  small attention a.- compared with the.  ordinary (racks to keep it in condition.  While the first cost would be considerable, the subsequent cost of maintenance -would more than offset if, and in  the end it would really be a cheap investment for the association. If it  should   prove   that,   horses   could   race  over such a Hack regardless of weather  conditions, then indeed it would be a  cheap investment I'or any association.  Milnv of the associations having mile  tracks also have half-mile tracks inside of the utile ring, and it might be  possible for some of these associations  to prepare the half-mile track in the  manner indicated. The public could  then be apprised through the. papers  that rac-ing would take place regardless of the weather, and undoubtedly  it would prove, a paying investment,  not only for the association, hut for  the horsemen, while thc 'public, would  not be disappointed in not witnessing  the sport it had planned to sec.  As a matter of fact, the American  trotter' is not a delicate creature as  some, of the trainers would have us believe. Last fall'at, Hot Springs, Ark.,  there were- two days when thc frach  was verv muddy, but the. trainers were  anxious "to go ahead and race, and the  association was more than willing to  havo the horses perform, and the result, was that on each afternoon four  good contest took place between the  trotters and pacers. The time was not,  as fast as trough the track had been  drv and linn, but the contests were  exciting and the footing was not bad.  as the track was made of a sandy soil.  Ijn'lh  horses and drivers were liberally  bespattered   with   the   sand,   but   this  was easily removed after thc races and  no   permanent   injury  was  done  either  to man or beast.    These races furnished  most satisfactory entertainment for  the  large  crowds, and hotb   thc public   ,.  and   the   association   were   moro   thau  pleased, for they had af first anticipa-  ted   that  there 'would  be  nothing  but   -  thc running races for sport during the  afternoon,'as neither of them believed  ,  tlmi, the trotting  horse  men would   be  willing to race through the mud.  Of course, to race n  high-class trotter  or  pacer  over it   clay  track  under'-  fhe same conditions would be somewhat *  different, as clay tracks are very slip-   *  pery aiid the horses stand a chance of  '  injuring   themselves   by   slipping- aud-.  straining the tendon or possibly falling-  iind breaking a  leg.   .This, however, is :  the  fault   of   the "construction .of   the.  track/but it-does seem that if. trotters-,  aro   enabled   to   race'in   the   rain   oir  European - (racks    that  - bur.

White Indians Whom Tradition    Says  Were    Descendants of   the Welsh  Are Rapidly "Becoming Extinct���������������������������  Some of Their Characteristics  One of the most remarkable of tho  Indian tribes of America is about to  linally pass out of existence. With  their passing will doubtless go the solution to thc mystery of Lhe so-called  "White Indians'.' of the Northwest.  There are but few of the iMundans,  once :i most powerful tribe of the Da-  kotiis now living, and the medical observations made by ilcrdlicka and others of the government investigators  show that the time of thoir passing is  not  far off.  The. Mandans have been slowly dying.  ou,f for yeais. Almost a century ago  an attack of smallpox swept the nation  that then numbered 0,000 souls. There  were but .'Jl left alive when the spotted  scourge passed on and left their lodges.  In nearly three-quarters of a century  their increase has been remarkably  small. These "White Indians" seem  robbed of their vitality, and arc placidly waiting the end of their tribal his-  i.tory with the usual stoicism-of -^the  American   aborigine.  L'Yom the times when the first of the  Hudson "Bay Fur Company's trdppeis  stumbled into the Mandan houses up in  _fche Northwest, these Indians havo been  "something ol' an enigma to the white  man.  such  They -jverc regal looking men, straight,  deep-chested, heavy-shouldered, and  thoy walked with the characteristic  stride of the white man. Many of  them wero blue-eyed, and their skins  were dark, like the skin of a white  man who has lived for a generation or  so in the open.  There are scarcely a hundred  pure-blood Mandans  Western reservation,  orally credited with  race, but the strangeness of their now  * almost obliterated traditions has always captivated thc mind of thc student. Their pale skins and occasional  blue eyes have lent much weight to  their story that their ancestors came  across the great water from the Hast  in a winged canoo. Like other savages of North America, fhey have kept  no written annals of their tribe; but  "the tradition of thoir coming .has been  handed down-from-one generation to  another by the wise men of the tribe.  One of the old-time river men,of'St.  Louis  was  well   acquainted   with     thc  7Mniidnn" chiefs  and    tribesmen-  of;   a  ���������������������������  generation ago.  -"A. 0.

"Thoy arc a  queer-looking race  for  Indians," said Mr. La,Barge reccutly,  -'"and   their   tribal   customs,   while , re-  -.sombling that of.other Indians in, some  particulars/'were in some things widely  -different.      No  other Indians  had   the  same    uncompromising -   standard     of  morality. There was nothing that even  approached  polygamy  in  their     tribal  ���������������������������life.    In most of the Northwest tribes  t the marriages between    the white men  and thc Indian maidens were informal  affairs.    With the, Mandans it was necessary to  be  married according to  the  white man's ceremonies.    They wis!  A part of the tradition of the coming of the Mandans has boon verified  by the patient Indian scholars 'who  have studied the tribes of the North  and Ihe Northwest. They have been  traced back, into the great lakes country, and traces of their occupation of  the neighborhood around the height of  land ii]) in Canada have been found.  Certain traditions among the ancient  forest tribes of Canada tell of agnation that lived in log houses partly underground.'  "The ground house people" they  wore called, and this tradition seems  to refer to the Mandan custom of  throwing up a bank of earth around  their strong lodges in order to make  them stronger, warme, and' less liable  to lake fire.

Other men in ships  no mmp seaworthy than his own managed t6 reach    them    over    the  .same  stormy seas.

The   house.,  that,'  tho  Mandans  onco  built am! many of the games thoy still  play are unlike anything in Indian life.  Football, so like thai, of ancient Welsh  folk  that the  icscmblanee is startling,  is   still   one  of  their   favorite    sports.  Thc native Welsh are themselves great  loveis of the game, but their devotion  to il   is no great er    than Chat of    the  ancient  Mandans  when the    tribe  was  one  of  the    most  powerful  and   most  fen red in the Northwosl.  ,Thc tradition of Prince Madoc and  his followers dates back fo about.the  eighth or ninth century of the Christian era. It was at'lonst a couple of.  centuries before any of the recorded  voyages of exploration made by the  Norsemen. The Welsh themselves had  but little.culture at thai. time. The  missions   established   in   the   Irish   Sea  openings were daubed with clay.     The  interior  of  these  huts    was    Spacious  when  compared  to most  Tiidian  lodges,!  and  there  was  an   air  of  petmanencyl  about  them.    From  the   very  first  vis-1  its    the    Mandans  became  instinctive  friends of the  whitomen.    Ruthless as  they  were   in     their   wars   and   forays  against   the   neighboring  savages,  they  have  nevor  been   in   conflict   with  the  United Slates.    Many of rhe survivors  of the scourge that swept their lodges  have at times been in the scout service  of the  United States.  The "White Indians"-' have unfortunately no record of their earlier wanderings through the Northern wilds of  America.

TliT'WcJsh "have a tradition  scorns to connect thc "White Indians"  of tho North with one of the savage  episodes of half-mythical Welsh history. There runs a talc among the1  early chroniclers of the Welshmen of a  corlain Prince Madoc, who rebelled  against authority and waged a long  and bloody civil war. In the cud hc  and his followers wore defeated, and  scattered among the hills and broken  country along the soacoast. Rather  than submit to thc certain death that  nwaited them at the hands of thc victors, thev built for themselves a ship  and embarked upon it with^thcir wives  and children. They then sot sail and  vanished into tho West. Por generations their vindictive kinsmen cherished a tradition that they had sailed  around Ireland and struck out into thc  unknown Atlantic in search of a now  land, wherein they might found a  kingdom of their own.  Tho followers of Prince Madoc never  ciinie buck, nor was thetc ever any  word of them received iu their native  land. In some manner, however, thc  impression gained ground among the,  people of Wales that Madoc and his  clansmen ^gained' the shores of a great  country to thc West and thero established thcmsolvcb. This was long before the visits of Eric tho Ked and  others of the Norsemen to the shores  of New England. There is no hint  among thc sagos of the Vikings of any  white race living along the coasts of  the Vtnland that the Norsemen had  conquered. The races they met seem  to have been the savage red men who  had but little effect upon the shaggy  folk who lived and fought among the  hills and crags of Wales. There was  but, little culture, among tho shock-  headed" warriors who "probably"sailed  with Madoc on his daring venture into  the  tin known   worlds  of  the   West.  There i.-. even a slight resemblances  between the pure-blood Mandans wilh  tlio light, skin ami light eyes, and the  Caucasian. The 'angle of the skull is  different from that of the other w*l-  known cranial typos of flic savages of  North America. The lypical higli  chook bone.-, of tho North American  savage are lacking in the Mandan. His  features are more tegular than those  of thc barbaric tribesmen that, are his  neighbors. ITis nose is declared by'  government scientists to be more nearly the type of the acquiline nostril of  the Causcasian than il is of the Siouan  typo. While the Omahas; the Ass-ini-  b'oinos and the Ponkas are supposed  to be related to the Mandans. and are  grouped .under the same aboriginal  family, the students have never felt  quire cm tain that the  c'orrecl.  According to the  who ventured into the Upper Missouri  country, tho Mandans have always held  themselves aloof from the other Indian  tribon. Hvery tribe near them seemed  to be their natural enemies, but they  preserved I heir racial identity and  withstood the attacks of hostile bands  until thoir practical annihilation by the  smallpox. The earliest students of  aboriginal life describe thorn as a tall,  woll-s'ot-up .race, with broad shoulders,  wide forehoads, and noses that lacked  the curved Hues of the ordinary- Indian.  Their huts wore built of logs and the  lassificalion was  earliest  explorers  kinds of traction steam was still superior, and it seemed that the two  might divide the field. But the trend  toward the adoption of electricity instead of steam on trunk roads, under  favorable conditions, is unmistakable.  Tt is slow but steady, and each year  finds additional mileage added to its  credit. The Now York terminal of  fhe Pennsylvania Jiailroad is now in  operation wilh electric power and pros-  poets, are .good..for _l,runk line-oloctrifi-  cation on this road in the near future.  The suburban branches <d' the Suufhern  Pacific Railroad terminating in Oakland. Cal.. are undergoing electrification.  The electric zones are to be extended  on the New Vork. Now Haven & Hartford Railroad. Klectrification of ter-  ininaN in Ho.toii and Chicago is slow,  but sure to come. These data are from  tin editorial in The Klcctrieal Review  and Western Kleclrician. The writer  goes on to sav:  "An innovation is about to be made  in fhe Carolinas by the Piedmont Traction Company, which has decided to  electrify with apparatus operating on  continuous current at 1,500 volts. The  length of line involved is 140 miles, in  two sections, one in North Carolina and  one in South Carolina. Another distinctive feature of this project i.s thc  purchase of power from a hydroelectric  company. . , . l!y supplying the  power necessary for electrical operation  at thc point- of consumption, central  stations can relieve the railroads of this  new element entering into electrification in those cases where individual  power supply must bo airanged for, and  where large power systpms exist more  dependable and continuous service can  be supplied.  "In Continental 1'hirope' progress is  much more rapid. The feasibility and  advantages of electrification having  once been demonstrated, managements  there, whether private or governmental,'  are much more keen on making hhe  change than thoy are in this country.

For the first time  in the history cf similar conferences  women will appear as delegates. Thc  purpose of the Ecumenical is not to  legislate, neither is it for doctrinal  controversy. It is rather for cooperation and mutual understanding,  for devising means of greater efficiency in home and foreign missions,  I and for increasing evangelistic power  throughout the world.

Ten thousand  is the number to be sent out to  elders, 300,000 to the membership,  and about 60,000 will be sent to adherents, to ask whether they concur,  although their,vote would not affect  the result apart, from that "of the  membership of the church either way.

It is probable   that protests will be  made against   the personal  F ropcrty  tax which merchants in municipalities  now contribute   to   the Government;  and the poll tax will likely also crime  up for discussion.      The farmers are  thc backbone of the community,  and  their taxes fall due in good and bad  years     alike;     if    they    think    that  they have cause for complaint cf any  sort this is the opportunity for tbem  to   bring   their    grievances before  a  commission appointed Tor the express  purpose  of enabling the Go^crnniont  to equalize taxation, and reiuee it if  it is .found possible to do so.
