Bill slid right into our mode of livin'  like a younger brother, but it took us  some consid'able time to savvy his  little-.oddities. The' was one wide  bunk in Lhc shack air one narrow one.  Me an' Bill took tho wide one, but it  wasn't so eternal wide that a feller  could flop around altogether accordin'  to thc dictates of his own conscience.  .When-she. .was. carry in .'..double, wo. had  to hold a littlo. consultation of war,  to sec whether we'd turn over or not.  We used to start out. early in thc  mornin', an' if the' wasn't much fix-  in ' to bo done wo got back long before  dark. About seven-thirty was our  perchin' timo beforo Bill took a hand,  but after that we got so convivual  that sometimes we'd sit up till purt'  nigh half-past nine, playin' cut-throat  an' swappin ' tales. Sleep alius was a  kind of a nuisance to Bill. Purt' nigh  every night when mc an' the Kid would  si retch ourselves out. Bill would speak  a piece about. "God bless the man what  first invented sleep"; but ho was only  joskin', an-' all the time he was sayin'  it he'd be buihlin' up tho fire an'  changin' his clothes. Ho had one suit  which he never woro for nothin' except just to sloop in. Pajnmers. hc  called  'om, an' they sure was purty.  Woll, ho'<l put ou this suit an' a  pair o' red-pointed slippers, light his  pipe, pick his guitar, an' saw his fiddle  till along toward mornin', all the while  singin' little batches o' song an'  spcakin'  pieces.      Then  he'd  heave  a  me;  joctionable   of   thc   two   forms.      Thc  spores aro sown with tho grain, gormhi-  ate, and infect the young shoots, until  the grain commences to form.    It then  grows   up   into   the   dcvloping. kernel,  whero   a   mass   of  spores   is   producod,  which    entirely  fills    tho   kernel    and  forms  tho  smut   ball.    Tho  outside  of  tho   kernel   remains   intact,   and   does  not  differ greatly in  appearance from  a   healthy   kernel,   beyond    a   slightly  swollen appearance.   If tho kernels arc  broken, tho  foul-smelling,  dark-colored  spore-mass   is   disclosed.    Tho   swollen  kernels enable one easily to detect attacked   ears,   because   thoy   cause   tho  chaff to be pushed open, causing a difference in tho appearance of the ear.  _ This  disease  is particularly destructive,  in that its presence signifies not  only loss of grain,-duo'to replacomont  by smut, but also loss in value of thc  good  wheat, which, owing to the presence of this smut or bunt  is  greatly  depreciated   in   price.    Such   wheat   is  often useless for milliug purposes.  The smut sporos germinate with tho  healthy seed, but the seedling age is  the only time that the plant is susceptible to smut infection.  . Tho best treatment for this smut is  the formaldehyde method. Mix one  pound (equals one pint) of commercial  40-por-cent. formaldehyde, with 50 gallons of water. The solution should not  bo made up till needod for use, because  it loses strength in standing.' The seed  should be spread out ou a cleau barn  or. granary floor, and thoroughly spriuk-  led with the 'formaldehyde ;'solution.  Shovel the grain ovor and over until  each seed is thoroughly moistened. Aftor the grain is all-moistened, it should  be shovelled into a hoap .and covered  closely with canvas or "tarpaulin'for  two or "throe hours." -Tlio floor, or/which  the operation is performed should'be  first sterilized with the formaldehyde.  Tn handling the grain after treatment,  the bags used should bo sterilized, ,'hs  should also, the seed box'on thc 'drill or  cultivator. There is little use of treating thc grain and thon exposing it  again tooliving sporos which may be  present  in  these places.  If formaldehyde is not obtainable,  immersion for twelve hours in one-'  half per cent, solution of copper sulphate (2 pounds to'50 gallons of water)  then in milk of lime (2 pounds of-lime  to 20 gallons of wator) i'or five minutes,  is recommended.

When break-  or   tiie   germinating  power of the seed will bo i.ujured.  Tho loose smut (Ustilago tritici) develops within the kernel through infection from smutted hoads at flowering  time, when the wind-blown spores from  an infected plant light on thc flowers  of a healthy plant und produco.thc disease. Tho kernels, unlike tho stinking  smut, do not reval tho presence of the  smut within them. For tho destruction  of this smut, the Jensen hot-water  ���������������������������treatnient-=iis=Hsedi=-:jriie=seed=miist=be-  treatod in small lots in order that all  the grain may quickly and uniformly  reach tho desired temperature. The  seed wheat should be placed in quantities, not to exceed one-half peck each,  in loose, burlap bags, and soaked for  five or six nours in water at a temperature of from G3 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit. A coal-oil barrel is convenient  for this purpose, the sack of grain boing hung from a stick laid across the  top" of" the' barrels "or'tubs "with~somo  twenty to forty gallons of hot water,  according to the quantity of seed to be  troated. The water of those two barrels' should be heated to a tomporuturo  of 1"0 degrees Fall ion ho it. It will be  necessary to heat thc water lo a somewhat higher temperature than this, because the barrel will cool it down  somewhat. The .ecd is transferred for  one minute, to the first vat containing  tho hot water to bring it up to required  temperature, after which if, should bo  placed in the second vat for ten minutes. Care must be taken that the  water does not go below 12-1 degrees  or above 131 degrees Fahrenheit. The  former temperature is tho lowest at  which tho disease I'-a'n be killed, and  the latter the highest which will not  greatly injure the seed. Seed treated  in this way must be spread out to dry,  and repeatedly shovelled ovor until it  will run through tho drill readily. The  planting of about one-fourth more seed  is advisable to replace any seeds of low  vitality which have boon injured in tho  treatment.  A combined treatmont for both smuts  consists in keeping barrel No. 1 at 120  to 325 degrees, and No. 2 at 132 degrees Fahrenheit, thc immersion in No.  1 lasting, as beforo, for ono minute,  and in No. 2 ten minutes.

FREE Color Card nnd STORY Booklet 10,  The Johnson-Richardson Co., Limited, Montreal,  THE  THE UM-  EVOLUTION OF  BEELLA  The invention of thc umbrella was  suggested by the broad leaves of tropical plants, and the first practical umbrella was an imitation leaf, made, of  some light fabric, and fastened to a  stick. In otiental countries the umbrella has retained this primitive, fan-  like form through many centuries to  the present da)'. lu thoso regions,  however, rain is comparatively infrequent, and when it comes, it is so violent and long-continued that no urn-  L-rpUa would be of much use. Hence  the umbrella was originally employed  as a sunshade. These fan-shaped  panisols are depicted in Egyptian inscriptions as ancient as the year J170  B.C.  The modem umbrella appears to be  an imitation not of a single leaf, but  of a widely branching tree. The inventor of the folding umbrella is unknown. A passage in the Greek play  "The Knights," written by Aristophanes in tho fifth century -B.C.,- apparently -refers to-a folding parasol, and  sunshades of this character are icpre-  sentod on antique Greek vases. This  might seem to complete thc story of  the development of the umbrella, but  that useful article has since\indorgone  many changes and has been the subject of numerous Jaws and ordinances.  The Uoman ladies adopted the parasol from the Greeks, as is shown by-  various passages in the works of Roman  writers. The parasol was usually carried by--a slave. The stick was,made  of bamboo, and the cover was Variegated fabrics. The use of the parasol was not confined to women. The  poet (Jlaudi'amis complains that-the effeminate Roman youths of the period  (B.C. 399), instead of'.carrying off Sabine virgins,.carried sunshades.-  The first mention of the employment  of thc umbrella as a protection against  rain occurs" in the letters of Alcuin, a  highly educated Englishman, who was  the tutor and-friend of Charlemagne.  A letter addressed to the Bishop "of  Salisbury in the year'800, contains the  words: "Oleuin sends the Bishop .a  'lopf to protect his venerable head  from the rain." Umbrellas were not  generally employed for .this purpose until many centuries'.later.  . "Jn.the middle ages'the" umbrella was  a^mark of rank and honor. After the  year 3176 a' gorgeous umbrella was always carried before the Doge of Venice,  whether the sun, shone or hot. Z The  manuscript chronicle of the/Council, of  Constance (1411-1418)' contains" a-picture, of.,the Pope's mimbrella of state.

"Speaking'of one of "these fountains-he says,that the"figure carries a  sunshade or.Indian head-covering, also  called a tiresol, from which-the water  flows.    .

Thc description of Robinson's Crusoe's umbrella in Defoe's famous work,  which was published in 1719, probably  did much to make the umbrella popular,  as a, protection against both sun and  rain.  About this time rain umbrellas made  thoir first appearance in England in a  singular wai", by being rented by the  ho"ur~to"lstudcnts~"~at "Oxford" and "Cam"  bridge The umbrella-carrying students  were laughed at, but not otherwise  molested. Subsequently the philanthropist ."lonas Ilanwey strongly advocated the use of thc umbrella and never  appeared in public without a large and  gaily colored umbrella, which he had  brought from the east. , Iio attracted  crowds, and derisive epithets were'  hurled at him from the windows. Han-  woy's force of character and imperturbable calm were required to make the  umbrella popular. Others began to  follow his example, and, although his  umbrella was long caricatured in the  journals, the philanthropist, in his old  age, had the satisfaction of seeing many  umbrellas used in London by his fellow' townsmen.  In the 18th century, also, inventors  began to direct their attention to the  improvement of the umbrella. The  first rank in the production of umbrellas was soon taken by France, where  a guild of umbrella makers was founded by Louis XV., in opposition to tlie  turners, who claimed thc right to monopolize the new industry. At this time  appeared the "broken" unbrella, the  stick of which was jointed, so that thc  cover could be inclined against slanting  raintall or sunshine, without holding  the stick very obliquely. These umbrellas wore sold in Paris in 1755 for  throe or four dollars apiece.  corns,  corns, bleeding corns, every kind of  cores that other remedies-fail to cure���������������������������  that's a good many���������������������������yield quickly to  Putnam's rainless Ura Extractor.

Sold by druggists, price 2.H-.  in Germany, the manufacture of umbrellas was inaugurated in 1755 at Uur-  emberg. Soon, however, it was ob-  jectod that carrying an umbrella advertised the bearer's inability to keep  a carriage.  Between 1791 and 1843 sixty Fieneh  patents weie granted for improvements  in umbrellus. These devices 'included  umbrella-canes, telescoping umbrellas,  umbrellas combined with opera-glasses  and writing implements, and even the  automatic umbrellay-which opens-when  a button is pressed and which is regarded as a novelty today. In 1776  the^Abbe Bertholon de St. Lazare invented an umbrella provided with a  lightning rod, for use in thunder  storms. The stick contained a pointed metal rod which could be taken out  and screwed on the top of the opened  umbrella. The earth connection was  made by means of a long piece of gilt  cord, which trailed on the "ground and  terminated in. a metal ball. The ball  and cord were, carried in the pocket  when .not in use. - -  >. Whon the invention of the air balloon revived interest in the parachute,  the first experiments, weie made with  ordinary umbrellas. Tn 1783 the physicist Le Normand accomplished tho first  successful descent; froni tho top of a  tree, with'two umbrellas, and in 3 797  Gamerin descended from a balloon with  the aid of one immense umbrella;   .  Even 'in the 18th century the umbrella had man,} opponents and 'formed  a favorite subject of caricatures, in  which it served,as a,"mark of old-foggy-'  ism and stupidity. Thc absent-minded  German professor who is always forgetting his umbrella has becomela classical  comic character: but an honorable' one,  for a man of science should "be occupied with things more important than  umbrellas.     ��������������������������� '.       ~.J  For years Mother Graves' Worm Ex  terminator has ranked as the most ef  fective preparation manufactured, and  it always* maintains its reputation.

The Japanese company, however, in its money-  making application of Western methods  has  not   wholly  lost  sight  of  Western  ideals.    Two or three years ago it began __the_ establJHhment_ of  a   chain_ of  railway clubs, "modeled after'thc" Young  Men's' Christian   Associations   'of "the  West,   and   differing   from   the   latter  only   in   the   substitution    of  general  moral   training   for   definite   religious  instruction   in   its   lecture-rooms"  and  classes.   This chain of clubs now covers  the   entire   line   of   the   railway,   and  gives   recreation   and   moral   education  to practically  the  whole force of employees.    A  regular corps   of  teachers  is employed, and additional instructors  are brought over from Japan  to give  lectures   on   special   topics.    The   railway  company  pays  all   expenses, and  the   president,    vice-president,    and   a  number   of   directors   recently   visited  all   the   clubs���������������������������even   the   smallest   of  them���������������������������and stimulated the interest and  activity of-the members by moans of  addresses and personal talk.    The general   manager  of   this  chain   of  clubs,  Mr. S. Otsuka, is a Christian convert,  and was formerly one of the national  secretaries of the Young Men's Christian  Association  of Japan.    All of his  associates are also members  of Christian   churches,   although   they   aro   not  expected to carry on a Christian propaganda in the railway clubs.    In the  latter,   as   in   tho   public   schools   of  Japan,  moral   instruction  is  based   on  the observed  results of human experience, not on the dogmas of any system  of theology.  ease, for instance, of Vedrines in the  recent air race. This plucky aviator  confesses that he only had three hours'  sleep during the whole of that, wonderful flight over ono thousand miles  round Great Britain. When one remembers that for an aviator there ar*)  no moments of repose, that he must b*.  ever on the alert, every faculty of  mind and body strained to tho uttermost, it i.s not surprising that at times  both Vedrines and Beaumont woro in  i state perilously near to nervous exhaustion.  Perhaps, however, one of the most  striking feats of human endurance wa.  that of Mr. Tom Burrows, the club-  swinging cbanipion of Great B.itain,  who, by whirling his clubs for foity-  six hours without a moment's respite,  broke all records. He reminds us of  Arthur Lancaster, a-young Brix*.on niiui,  who, two years ago, achieved athletic  fame by swinging a blacksmith's hammer for twelvo consecutive ho-.irs, and  afterwards added to his laurels by beating all 'British records for ba'!-punch-  fiftcen hours continuously, at the aver-  ago rate of 145 punches a fninuto. 0<--  ^asionr-.-iy he would go awav on :i l.inst  of C50 ;>i)d 260 a minute, and so powerful 'v:i.������������������ his fist-work that t'lra" tim.s  he b'-ol-o the rope of the hall and had  to tun. his attention to one kepi in  reserve.  It is not so long ago that two Frenchmen walked round' a billiard table in  Paris for twenty-four consecutive hours  playing game after game, and covered  a distance of sixty miles; while a band  of change ringers' rang the bells of St.  Martin's, Birmingham, for eight hours  without a second's pause.  Then there was the P.olish lady who  performed thc stupendous feat of dancing for thirty-four hours. It is not  suggested, of course, that she danced  for this-time without a rest; the intervals, however, were only short, and  she did not go to-bed during the time.  Three years ago an Italian-living in  Paris offered $200 to anyone who danced longer than himself.--Five competitors entered the lists against him, but  one by o'ne they dropped out, whilst  the nimble Italian fantastically, footed  it for- fourteen shours, "at the rate of  eighteen waltzes an hour, without turning a hair. .

Youth  is apt to be quiet and ofttimes morose;  it thinks to itself and lives within itself. Adolescence ofttimes makes a boy  silent: somehow he cannot reach expression, and all sorts of perverted notions  of fauciod shortcomings and thc attitude  of others toward himself grow within  him. lie gets absorbed with the idea  that uo one understands him; no one believes in him.

R. ROGERS LUMBER CO., Enderby  The Department of Agriculture,  through its Horticultural branch,  will continue this year its policy of  conducting practical schools of instruction in fruit packing throughout  all the fruit districts of the Province.  This work was begun two years ago,  largely in an experimental way, but  the very gratifying results fully justified the considerable extension of  the work last year. While in some  districts results have so far not been  particularly encouraging, in others  this work has given a great deal of  encouragement to proper fruit packing, and has considerably improved  the character of the product of the  district. One striking instance of its  usefulness is the fact that this year  over 75 per cent of the packed fruit  exhibited at the fairs of the Province  was .put up by pupils of packing  schools.  This work has thus become of considerable significance in the development of 'our fruit industry. We hope  that through it, the invasion of the  Japanese and Chinese packers, so  successful in California, will be largely prevented in this Province. We  have already seen evidence of this.  This work will also aid materially in  developing a uniformly good pack  from all 'districts.  Application haa already been made  through the Secretary of the Farmers  Institute for a school at Enderby  or Mara this year. The fee for the  course of lessons will.be the'same as  last year���������������������������$3 each. Twelve lessons  will be given; extending over two and  a half hours for each lesson, the  school being in "session for over one  .week. The regulations governing the  number, of pupils, etc., are the -same  this year as last. The advantages of  the schools are: - <-_  1. Principally,; practical and thorough " instruction in actual commercial packing. Each pupil is engaged  in actual packing, under the personal  supervision of an instructor who  knows and can teach commercial  packing.  2. Pupils will learn the methods in  equipment used 'by up-to-date and  progressive associations in packing,  grading, wrapping' and handling of  fruit.  3. Instructions will be given in the  proper marking of different sizes and  grades of fruit, ��������������������������� and the interpretation of the "Fruit Marks Act."  4.

The  men of the church who put Christ to  death were no less sincere than the  men of the church to-day who  would bind men in fetters of priesthood. We honor the church for its  work in the uplift of humanity by  cords of love and human tolerance;  here and there we see it; - To-this  extent the church is fulfilling its mission. But when it- steps into the  shoes of the state and curtails the  liberty of those outside of its fold, it  is throwing back to the days of the  inquisition..-,. It is silly to question  the privilege of individual churchgoers whb wish to have a say in  matters of government. This is conceded. But as individuals, they have  not the right to restrict other individuals, and if they .have not this  right as individuals,they have not'the  right collectively. As for this talk  about enslaving the train crew on0the  Okanagan branch, the fact that the  men themselves are far less concerned  about it than some of those who are  making the most noise about it, convinces us that there is not' much to  be feared on this score.

The exhibit which gained this reward  consisted of 101 varieties drawn from  all sections of the' province, aggregating in weight about one and a half  tons. The credit of the display rests  entirely with the Department of Agriculture, whose ministers scoured the  province to secure the finest specimens. Eugene H.

C.  9i  Tram Lines for Okanagan  One of the most important announcements of the year affecting the  Okanagan Valley was given out when  it was made known that Messrs. McKenzie & Mann, of the Canadian  Northern railway, had purchased the  Couteau Power Co. There is much  significance in the announcement for  it means the early consummation of  a scheme in which is wrapped up untold possibilities for the district. It  means that the electric railway from  Shuswap Falls to Vernon, .with the  latter as the radiating centre, reaching all parts of the Valley, will not  long be delayed, and that the Canadian Northern will use this line as a  feeder for its. great transcontinental  system. It was ionly the other day  that Messrs. McKenzie & Mann announced that their branch line from  Kamloops through the Okanagan  Valley would be ready for operation  as soon as the main line, and it begins to look as though the acquisition of the Coiiteau Power Co. is a  definite part of the great scheme.  The power for the line,will be,engendered at Shuswap Falls, about 26  miles from Vernon, and'the electric  road will pass through White Valley  and Coldstream "on to this city, and  thence link up the various Okanagan  towns, proceeding onward to Enderby  on the north and Kelowna on the  south. Cheap power and cheap light  are leading features of the plan, and  the great impetus which it will give  to all lines of business activity is too  apparent to require comment.'  "   '-" '*  It will be remembered, also that  McKenzie & Mann have repeatedly announced their intention "of. building  a branch Jine of the . Canadian Northern . Railway'; into the- Okanagan  from Kamloops, and have' received a  promise it rom 'Premier McBride that  the-government .will- assist them in  this enterprise .to the- same extent  that*. they ' accorded" them -for' their  mainline throughr_the' province." The  fact that' this - enterprising "firm of  railway builders have now.secured.the  Couteau.-. charter \ seems. to"c indicate-  beyond* air doubt ,that_>they "have .de-,  termined tp\pusfr forward -their,! entry,  to" the, Okanagan y and fmake" the.-elec-1  trict-line a* feeder"'for their 'railway.'

The latter part of the nineteenth century heralded a revolution ia this respect.    Demand has grown so rapidly that it has  equalled, and oftiuios over-run- the supply, and conditions are now vice versa.  Tiie buyers want a certain, kind of carcass, and there is no choice but Hob*  ���������������������������sou's for, the beef man.    He must meet  rhe   markot   requirements   or  quit   the  business.���������������������������   What  does  he. want?',- He  rails for meat and not appearance, aud  In*  wants   thai   ment  on   llic   valuable  places.    He wants whal, I lie early animal and a -rood deal of our stock today  ui'i not and does not possess; less ollal  and more round and lib and loin meat.  Does  the  coi_-.iin.cr  care  how  much   it  costs you to produce that cheaper meat?  Not one iota.    If your animal was nothing  but  a  bone factory  and  it cost  you  as  much   to  put  the  meat  on the  shank, plato and Hank as it did to put  tin;  valuable meat, on   the ribs,  that's  your   lookout.       The    consumer    isn't  Christian enough  to  pay  for your mistakes. ;  Fancy Steele never yot made the live  -���������������������������lock industry of our -'ountry.    If you  get the consumer's idea you  will come  to the conclusion that it doesn't matter  one  straw  whether  thc  finished  beeve  '    -looks liko a  small  elephant or  an  upholstered   drawing-room   suite,   so   long  as  he  can  deliver  the  goods  that  the  market asks  for.    What  the  consumer  wants is meat, and tie will take nothing  i'lse.  A few years ago, a large, heavy,  thick, bullock, weighing about 2,000  pounds, suited all markets, but that  kind of animal io a memory today.  Why? Because tho feeder couldn't afford to use his food so wasteful ly. Jt  took him almost twice as long to lit  his animal for market. His feed was,  in a great many cases, lessened in value  by marketing it through the medium  of the steer. The great, heavy, bulk-  jug brute looked good but possessed  too much fat; the fleshing wasn't juicy  suough, and because of his size, hc was  a problem to handle.  Uruiekshank got wise aud pulled the  beef animal 'off his stilts, did away  svith his scrawny neck And heavy head,  .and produced for us the beautiful, economic feed consumer that is the most  beautiful animal in the live stock  world, and a tribute to the genius of  the men who developed it.  Today the animal - that, pulls top  prices is a well finished, near thc ground,  compact bullock, not weighing morp  than 1,000 on, his feet, and 3,200 pounds  is better, and at the latter weight he  will command the 'highest price provided all other things are equal regarding form", flesh,"quality, and finish..  The. producers profit by this change,  because the younger tho animal goes to  the' block, tho" less the length of thc  feeding period, aud so (he greater profit  to the feeder. British markets call.for  a beast of moderate weight, medium  fat, aiid first-rate quality. There must  be sufficient fat on the carcass to insure that* delicious flavor and LnslinosH  which is tho soiling virtue of meats on  the British market. The trouble with  our Canadian beef growers is that they  endeavor to grow the 'moat in a few  weeks instead of utilizing a season's  growing process. What is the consequence? Thick fat and a coarse, tough  meat. Fat deposited on the outside  of carcass anil good for uothing but  tallow. This is false economy in its  worst degree, and beef growers will do  well to got next to (he economic method  of.' beef fattening.  The real secret of producing first-  ���������������������������ilass meat is to induce the fat to grow  with the lean during the whole process  cf flesh production. This results in an  oven distribution of fat throughout  Ihe lean and the. production of that  i.plendid quality of meal which alone  can demand a fancy price on our best  -^rn^ft-i-je:=?;^iMiiTp=c-arreasnf^wheri=-cli'cssod;  out, should show specks of fat generously distributed throughout the lean. Vou  can only secure such meat in one way,  and that, way is by consistent, nutritious  folding and earn from biilh until maturity.       \ i  The requirement-, of both feeder and  butcher must be studied and appreciated in the selection of breeding of the  most profitable animal, The feeder  ctf'Js for_ good bone, huge, capacity of  "hii"r>el7 and a" cheat" "(Iccfr'and "broad."

A si: the bree.de/  and feeder.  lu a public address on last Fourth of July, Mayor Gay-  uor of New York stated that the public schools wero giving  their pupils a "uniform mind" and thereby a "uniform  face." That he. was formulating an obsorved scientific fact  probably occurred to few of his hearers, yet, according to a  writer in the Now York Times this was the case. It is  ouly of recent years, says this writer, that scientists havo  come.to realize this truth, bat it rests today on good ground.  A uniform education niakos people "look alike." Tho  words "As a man thinketh, so ho is" have always boon  taken in a spiritual fashion, but they appear to bo about  equally true when applied to the physical side of life.  " '.Por my part,' said the Mayor, 'it seems to be now  that the children of all nationalities in the schools como out  with a face different from that of their forefathers. Tho  noses of some are a little shorter and'of others a little-longer,  and the high cheek bones go down a littlo in others, and au  American face is even now coming out of tho common schools,  because the mind, you know, does affect the body boyond  any doubt whatever, whether in sickness ot in health, and  in that way we are getting also a uniform mind.'  "When Prince Ilenry of Prussia was over bore he aud  the members of bis suite made a similar observation, reported by Admiral .Evans in his account of that famous trip  in 'An Admiral's Log.' It was at tho "University Club reception to the T'riucc, and scores of college men filled the  room. The Admiral tolls that the Germans were interested  and even excited by thc discovery that their hosts boro a  similar likeness to one another.  " "'You arc developing a college typo in this country,*'  they said, *'a type distinctively American and unlike the university man of Europe.' Admiral Evans says that tho remark made him thoughtful at the time- and had given hini  food L'or meditation ovor since. Jle has come to thc conclusion now that he could even toll an American college  man's back, though he met him in thc wilds of Africa or in  the jungles of thc Philippines.   =  "The German visitors are not alone in remarking the  curious facial resemblance of Amoricans of similar.education.  Throughout Europe the type is known perhaps- even better  than it is hore whero there are so many of us wo can hardly  stop to analyze.     Frenchmen   and Italians note it."  Two men, the newspaper writer goes on to say, have  studied this question exhaustively, Prof. Franz Boas of Columbia University, who is still preparing for publication his  remarkable findings as to the change in tho head-shape of  immigrants, and Dr. "Maurice Fishbcrg, who has made exteu-  sivo studies aloug much the same line. Dr. Fishbcrg, in  an -intorviow, called attention to the fact that what people  call "features" is nine times out of ten expression. Races  havo their peculiar expressions, the result of economic and  social conditions.* Change these conditions and.the facos  of tho people appear to change. So it would be, Dr. Fishbcrg thinks, with all immigrants taken out of thoir racial environment.' This does not mean a change in actual' features, becauso features do not play nearly so great a part in  "looks" as people think.     Professor Boas' investigations,  Ikum    c*-Vi /"���������������������������t-ij-T-n    o     f* A ti (\ n n /i i r    in    -flirt   r>}������������������ 11 rl r/i-n     nlr    i yyi ny  also, havo shown a tendency in the childron of immigrants,  born in this country, to vary from the parental type in certain ways.     We read:  - "Professor Boas holds that his investigations fend to  show that thore is an actual modification of tho physical  type, aud that it begins to take place very soon after the  arrival of the parents. Children born-shortly after the  landing of their parents in this country begin to differ from  the so-called racial type, and these differences," beginning in  childhood,-persist through life. ' '  "Ho studied very, carefully the children born in liuropo.  their brothers and'sisters born hero, and finally thoir parents. Even the head-form, which has always boen considered one.of thc most stable and permanont characteristics  of human races, undergoes far-reacliing changes due to th-.  transfer of the races of Europe to American soil. The  East European flebrow, who has a very round head, becomes  more long-headed* the South Italian, who -in Italy has an  exceedingly long head, becomos more short-headed, so "th-it  both approach a uniform type in this country, so far as  thc roundness of tho head ie concerned.    .    .    .  " 'From a practical point of view' (said Professor Boas),  'it seemed all-important to know whether American enviror-  rnent had a favorable or unfavorable effect upon the descendants of immigrants.  " 'The investigation has shown much more than was anticipated. There are not only decided changes in tho rate of  dovelopment of immigrants, but there is also a far-reaching  change in the type���������������������������a change which can not be ascribed to  selection or mixture, but which can only be cxpla-nol as due  directly to the influence of environment.    .    .    .  " 'The influence of American environment upon the descendants of immigrants increases with the time that the  ���������������������������immigrants have lived in this country before the birth of  their children.  " *'We have proved this statement by comparing the fea-  tures of individuals of a certain race born abroad, born in  America within ten years after the arrival of tho mother,  ���������������������������.tid-hni,ii-l*f'.n-vBar.'*-nr--morc-aftei,--thc-arrLval_of_the_iiiofcl*.ci__.  were past Ceylon. We gather from such pleasing romances  that thore wa3 nothing so dangerous to the heart as a long  voyage and a small ship's company. And nothing moro  cozy and sociable than the meagre community under tho  great white sails, after the first fortnight. "- Which is a  situation no more to :be compared with that aboard our'ship  today than lifo in a French ��������������������������� pension may bo compared with  that of the Elysee. Palace Hotel.  But what wc lose in sociability in theso days of linors,  with hotel offices and four cafes, wo surely gain in variety.  There are plenty of things to see besides sky aud wator,  and plenty of games to -watch, if you don't want to play  them yourself. -.,-  For instance, when letters aud papers arc read and time  begins to hang heavily tomorrow and day after, or the  noxt, you will catch the politician playing at tossing rings  over a stick with the gentleman of the iivo thousand roulette  ������������������������������������������������������hips; ".Tf you can imagine these two gcntlcmon tossing  rings ovor a stick at home, you are welcome to tho picture. But here thoy will assuredly bo discovered with  arms full of rings, tossing gravely. ' And when ,thoy have  finished their "stirring struggle for the Palm of Supremacy," as the immortal Tody Hamilton has it, one will bo as  elatoil as though he had won something and the othor as  secretly dejectod as though ho were a guest just coming  down tho steps of thc house where the chips were found.  Aud you may see lho girl with thc turned-down hat-  brim and the turucd-up nose pitching rings over a stick  with a boy who is going to see the world. Tho gallery  will be large, then, and the girl will pitch prettily. And  maybe the boy won't havo something to tell ovor the rare  roast beef at thc training-table, next fall!  Or playing beau-bag, which differs from pitching rings  in that it is easier, when you'know how, given a square,  slanting board, marked in numbered squares, aud a handful of flat 'boan-bags or neat little sand-bags, 'amazingly  like buckwheat cakes. Many a normal man on shipboard  can stand an hour or so any morning in company with these  simple articles and an opponent, toeing a .mark, tossing tho  bags on the numbered squares and adding up his scores.  Or shuffleboard, which is a game for somo skill.and calculation, particularly when the ship rolls. We mark off a  pattern of squares on the deck and number each square, or  rather, we stand and watch the quartermaster, do" it���������������������������wo  should nevor get it right. And we take four flat discs, and  some one else takes flour flat discs, and wc repair some fifteen foot up the deck. And from there we slide- thoso  discs along tho dock, by aid of a long-handlod, shovel-ended  implement���������������������������an exorcise-'which makes..chronically lazy por-  sons lame next daj*. And tho object of thc game is to  slido theso discs on one of the numbered squares; to  knock your opponent's discs off into'the scuppers, to keep  from being knocked off yourself. Young married persons  seem to like shuffleboard. And when tho girl wins tion-  stantly and the man rejoices gonerously thereat, one does  not need to have seen white ribbons on thoir cabin trunks as  they came abroad and followed a trail of rice down their  cabin passage. ������������������  GRACE IN GOLF  It appears that the longer the parents have bcen-hcio the  greater is the. divergence of the descendants from the European lype.  " 'The approach of the Hebrew and Sicilian typos becomes very clear when we divide the American-bom descendants info thoso born less than ton years after the arrival of the, mothers and those born ten years and moro  after the arrival of the mothers. The childen born after  ten or more years' residence showed a more marked difference, a greater tendency toward 'a common type, than, those  born earlier.'  -������������������������������������������������������Tho change that-takes-place is-not always for the-bet-  tev. The East Europoan Hebrew improved physically. Thero  is, Dr. Fishbcrg has found, a difference in favor of thc American children of nearly an inch and a half in height, compare-:! with those who have remained in Europe. On tbe  other hand, the Ttalian children pay dearly for tho .shortening of thoir heads and tho widoning of thoir faces, They  are not as sturdy as were their forefathers jn their mountains.  "This decline, however, is partially offset by another consideration. The physique of children in small farailiofl ia  better than the physique of children in large families, according to an investigation made by Professor Boas which  covered all classes of society, and families tend to be smallor  hore than in Europe.  "Tho power of America to absorb is apparently even  greater than was supposed. Henry Jamas, when he came  over and wrote his impressions of his native land after many  years' absence, said that it seomed to him a great dye-pot  in which all nations 'were plunged, to come out,a uniform  tint. He found many Italians, ���������������������������but somehow the Italian  grace that charms in Europe was gone. Going into Amori-.  can business,.the childron of music and art had become like  the rest of the American world."  WHETHER winning or losing, Goorgc Duneau  is at all  times one of the most attractive players to . watch  that  ever handled a  club.      Some five foot' eleven  inches iu height, without an ounce of superfluous flesh on  him,  easy and lithe in all   his movements,  supple-jointed,  and with muscles as hard as the granite .of his native Aberdeen, he was built for golf if any man ovor was..    When  Mr.   P.   A.   Vailo  wrote  bis   admirable  book  on   "Modern  Golf"   he   wisely  asked  Duncan   to   illustrato   the   various  strokes he described.      "There.is nobody," said Mr. Vailo  it: his preface,, "that I prefer to him.'     Tn  my opinion ho  is thc most interesting personality in the golf world.    The  few who may claim to rank above Duncan are' ascertained  quantities.    _ Notwithstanding   his' -brilliant, achievements,  Duncan  still  practically has  all  his  golf  in" front ��������������������������� of" him.  There is no golfer that T know, certainty none-of-the young-  er-school, whose game impresses .me witb such a .sense of  its capabilities as  does Duncan's,- and I look forward  confidently to his  taking and  holding'a" great  position in  the  golfing   world.    .    .    .    I   havo   always   admired   Duncan [s  play, and  the  exceedingly intelligent interest ho "takes-'in  the  science  of  the  game   that, is. beyond  the,thoughts -of  many  professionals.   -.    .    .    .    T  considoi;  T  am   very, fortunate in having Duncan  to demonstrate the strokes, for I  havo  never  met  any  one  who  knows  so"exactly'what'is  happening at any part of his stroke as Duncan does. * .   ..'  .  Notwithstanding his position in the golfing world,' Duncan'  is as ready to learn as he is" to teach.  ~ T shall nevor forget the avidity with  which   he seized  on  the now stymie  stroke that I introduced some time ago, and the frankness  with  whieh  hc admitted  that it was new  to him  and   the  other  professionals,  and  a  bettor  stroke   than  thai" generally used.    ...      Tt is the spirit  that" breaks down  any  question of professional and amateur; and that, in my opinion, is wanted "more than anything else to infuse fresh life  and  health into our games.  -  One cannot holp  feeling this  when one sees thc professional as solidly and unselfishly devoted to the game, for the "game, as "George Duncan, in. his  connection.* with me generally, and with this book in  particular, has proved  to be."  That is a fino tribute, aud every word of it is deserved.  Golf with- Duncan is at once an instinct and a passion. "A  freer and more natural player ono is never likely to see.

You  can breed a "bred-to-lay" strain-just  the same as you can breed fine feather  and exhibition points.  Now   the  farmor  requires   a   profitable   bird,   oue   with   laying.   abilities  above the avorago.     He can nevor se- '  cure a  reliable  bird iu  a mongrel, he  must'havo   a   thoroughbred.       Certain'  breeds   have   been   tested  and   "mado  good."    Then wc must remember that  there  are ^breeds   which   excel   in   cor  tain  points only.      Some are    strictly  tabic birds, others are really only egg  producers.       Last, but    not least,   we  have tho "general purpose fowl," the  breed   that   supplies   us    with  a   good  number of good-sized  eggs,,  aud    also  carries plenty of flesh.      Wc then havo  the  ideal  farmer's  fowl.    Now, as an  all-round  farmer's   fowl .  tho     Barrod  Kock   easily   holds     premier   place   hi  Canada.      Personally T cannot call to  mind ��������������������������� any   largo   laying   competition  where   the. Barred   Rock  headed     tho  list iu recent years.   The White Wyan-  .dotto mostly heads the list, the Orph-  ington  coming second,  but apart" from  this, the Barred Rock is a hardy profitable fowl, ancl is a splendid table bird,  and   moreover,  generally   lays  ti  good-  sized egg.     Now here is the point. .' A  breed to bo any use to the farmer must .  lay a good-sized egg.      Take, the Silver"  Pencilled   Wyandotte.       .1, "should * say -  they lay thc smallest egg of'any heavy  breed   of  fowls,  far  smaller  than   the.  average Silver Laced Wyandotte. Now0  so far   wo require a good layer, a quick  grower, a good tablo bird, and a strong,  vigorous bird.      Tn  going through  our  list we must also choose a breed adapted   to   our  individual   farm.      Strictly  speaking a self-color is the most suitable breed for tho farmer.   Now Barred Rocks are rather slow growersj.and  oven   their  most  enthusiastic   support- '  crs  must acknowledge  that" their flesh  is   rather   coarse. : This,  and'in   some ���������������������������  strains,   their   inclination   to     broody-  uesa does not mako them all' that we ���������������������������  could   desire;   besides,   they   are   great  eaters, a fault with all'heavy breeds.'.'"

A waggish journal in Paris, however, published a  correspondence which suggested a slight hitch in the system.

In the old days, when immigrants were landed at Castle  Garden, New York, a bright young Irishman was sent trudging up Broadway to conquer the New World. He had heard  of tho great chances in America for a young man, and  had boen told that you could "pick money up in the streets."  Sure enough, he had not gono far when he saw a sinning  yellow disc on the sidewalk and had Boon put his first five-  dollar gold piece in his pocket.    At tho next corner a blind  Billy was a quaint old darky who  had come to the city for the first  time. One day his employer sent him  with a note to a man whoso office was  on an upper floor of a skyscraper,  whoro overy floor of the building was  arranged and finished like the first one.  Billy was directed by the elevator boy  to outer the "lift," and he would then  show him to the office he wanted. It  was Billy's first experience in an elevator, and he did not rightly:'-under-  stand tho nature or purpose of it; -f Ou  his   return   he   described   some   of   his  axes  experiences' to his employer.

LaBt Sunday the  coaches were, comfortablyJfilled, both  south-bound and north-bound. The  first-class coach was occupied largely  by parents    and   their   children.  The object of the 'Sunday service is  best "explained by Mr. Brodie himself.  In a letter addressed to prominent  men* in the various Okanagan towns,  he says:  "Enclosed please find copy of a letter which   I    have   addressed to the  clergy of the Valley1,   who have sent  me letters of- protest in connection  with   the   service ��������������������������� which I have ar-.  ranged at the urgent   request of the  citizens of   the  -Valley.,    I shall be  very glad to hear from you as soon  as possible in regard thereto.     In arranging   this    service   I * was of the  opinion   that   we     were   making    a  change   that   would   be welcomed by  every person in the Valley, realizing  as-I could   not   help doing, that it  was   very   unsatisfactory   to compel  passengers   to   remain-over at, junction points when within a few miles  of their destination, or compel them  to-lose twenty-four hours at the commencement of'a very long journey, as  in most cases it "is, when passengers  leave the Valley.";-    '        '7      ��������������������������� '-:���������������������������-  The letter referred to by Mr. Brodie  is as follows.   .   It   is   addressed to  Rev. Mr. Campbell, and; other clergymen of the Vallejr:   "I am in receipt  of your .various   communications in'  regard to our; proposed Sunday service" on', the "Sicamous branch .and * on  the - Okanagan   Lake,   and I -am * sur^  prised to_.learn_. that-opposition--has  J---.-Z.     y   ' ?        --  ... s i-   -JL   ~.-i K    i        -,.-   .   ---_*-  arisen to.' the - proposed 'improvement,  in 1 pur transportation 7: facilities.. for  ���������������������������the benefit- of j the-people' of- the,* Okanagan Valley., ��������������������������� On -.each of, my, ...visits  to-*the- Valley . representations-".were  made to roe concerning the benefits to  be'derived by,a through service seven  days a week, and when I was at the  Vernon Exhibition I was requested by  the Vernon Board of Trade to once  more press   our    management to improve the service.     They pointed out  to me, quite properly I thought, that  it  was a   serious    inconvenience  for  passengers arriving from far eastern  points, and also from Vancouver and  Victoria, on a Sunday morning to be  held up for twenty-four hours at Sicamous junction.      As an example, a  passenger from Vernon doing 'business  at the Capitol of the province is obliged to leave Victoria Friday afternoon in order to be home on Saturday.     Then again, returning passengers from the far east, after completing their journey of several thousand  miles,  find themselves  obliged to remain over within a few miles of their  destination for twenty-four hours. In  view  of the  representations made, I  'decided to recommend to our management to furnish    the   facilities asked  for, and our new service will become  effective on change*of time.     It will  take but a short time to demonstrate  whether or not the service is actually  required, which has been arranged by  the company purely as a convenience  jand we   were    guided   solely   by the  representations made to us."  In this connection, the-Council*of  the Vernon Board of Trade last week  passed a resolution "that the Council  of the Board of' Trade is of the" opinion that the Sunday train service is  advantageous to the_ Valley, and wish  the "service ^continued, and-desire -to  thank Mr. "Brodie for His efforts in  this-direction."    -   ��������������������������� "  REV.

Your criticisms of the church  have no bearing on the question, and  )there is no need to reply.     There are  1 other prejudices   just as narrow and  ��������������������������� fatal and    bloody   as    any religious  prejudice,   but    I leave them to another   time.      I   may say, however,  that the    time   is   past when people  will   be   denied    their   say in public  matters because they see fit to go to  church, no    matter   what the consequence may be.     If to stand for the  moral welfare of society, for. the enforcement   of   law, and for the freedom and right   of   the individual be  unworthy of the church, let it.  The Lord's   Day    Alliance is not a  church organization, although it has  the approval and help of all churches  ���������������������������Protestant and Roman.   It also has  the sympathy and support of'almost  every labor   organization in the Dominion, and the support" of the large  number   of   sane   businessmen'.   . The  Lord's Day   Act   has "the support of  'every    government   in the Dominion,  federal   and   provincial,   except   the  Government of British ColumMa. And  anyone   who   considers   honestly the  1 purpose   and   character    of that law  can   hardly   find   reason for talking  about    the    "suppression   of   man,"  "bigoted   and   narrow   intolerance."  The question before us is, that from  fifty to a hundred men in the Valley  are   bound   to   seven   days'' work a  week in the. name   of what is called  public - convenience.    Nor is it sum\  cient to say that' they may! quit the  job if they 'are  "not satisfied.   - According' to" your   position the public  makes the demand  which puts those  who serve'them.in,an unfair and unjust position.

He was cut out for thc army. Going  up to the milk-boy he asked, smiling  the while:  "Would you like to serve your king  and country, my lad?"  "Yes, rather." came, the reply, as  the boy picked up his measure. "Pint  or a quart?''  Sir Charles Pvussell, when practising  at the Bar, was a noted cross-examiner,  and it was a shrewd witness who could  circumvent him. On one occasion, at  least, however, the laugh was on him  by an innocently intended answer. He  was cross-examining a witness in regard to certain hoof-prints by a horse  on sandy soil.

Her sire wa? a fast four-year���������������������������  old, and her grand si re Directum 2:03  1-i, tho bright star of the Direct family, was the world's champion four-  year-old for many years.

Dudie Archdale 2:0G 1-4, the whipcord trotter of the Grand Circuit, was  sired by a grandson of Electioneer, and  her dam traces to Belmont fi4.  E.T.C. 2:06 1-4, the crack stake ti otter in the ?\Iurphy string seems to have  inherited his racing ability and speed  from his dam's side. She is by a  son of Nutwood 2:JK 3-4.

Levere, of Prescott, North  Channel, Ont., tells bow Zam-Buk cured  her baby. She says: -���������������������������''My baby's  head and face was one compieto mass  of sores. The itching and irritation  were frightful, and the little one's  plight was so serious that at one time  we feared her ears would bo eaten off  by the disease.  "We had to keep her hands tied for  days to prevent her rubbing and  scratching tho sores. Doctor after doctor treated her in vain", until we had  had live doctors, They all agreed it  was a frightful case of eczema, b*.t  none of them did any permanent good.  "As a last resource we were advised  to try Zam-Buk. Thc first box did so  much good that wc felt sure we were  at last working in the right direction.  We persevered with the treatment until wo had used thirteen boxes, and at  the end of that time I am glad to say  Zam-Buk had effected a complete  cure."  Fur eczema, eruptions, rashes, tetter,  itch, ringworm and similar skin diseases, Zam-Buk is without equal. It  also cures cuts, burns, scalds, piles, abscesses, chronic sores, blood poisoning,  etc. All druggists and stores at 50  .cents a box, or post free for price from  Zam-Buk Co., Toronto. Refuse imitations.  There is no medicine ou the market  that can compare witlr Bickle's Anti-  Consumptive Syrup in expelling from  the^ system the irritating genus that  colds engender in the air passages. It  is suicide to neglect your cold. Try the  cheap experiment of ridding.yourself of  it by using Bickle's Syrup, which is a  simple remedy, easily taken, and once  used it will always be prized as a -.ov-  ereign  medicine.

It was a frankly perturbed young  Englishman who one day, recently,  Hougbt advico of tho clerk of the fashionable hotel where he was staying.  He had just missed his valuable gold  chronometer���������������������������must have lost it while  strolling in Fifth Avenue. How should  he go about advertising for its return?  "Sure you didn't leave it in your  room? asked the clerk.  The Englishman snirTod. Well, rather not! Too careful, he was, by far,  for any blasted American crooks.  Never allowed a suspicious man or woman near him; and in crowds always  held his hand so no one could, get to  his watch. Pocket pickod! Well, of  all nonsensical things!  In order to understand whether he  was justified in feeling so confident, it  will be well to retrace with the young  man the incidents of his outing subsequent to his last sight of the timepiece.  Tiring of strolling down the Avenue,  he had waited at a crossing for an uptown "omnibus that would carry him  back to the hotel. Then.it was that  the gallant" young gentleman, fresh  from London, was addressed by the demure young lady in thc fetching picture hat": -  "I beg your pardon, sir," she said,  ���������������������������   most timidly, '"'but  could you tell  me  the time?"  o  Naturally he did so, not a little  proud o'f .the handsome-chronometer he  displayed. Then along came" the omnk  "bus and he pushed his way aboard with  several other passengers. He .noticed  with satisfaction that the pretty young  lady secured a seat just.beside him.  The stuffy interior was not at all to  his liking.    Besides, just opposite, sat  two   young  men,   obviously   in   liquor,  who -began to bicker loudly.

In  rthi6   day    of  keen    competition    even  ���������������������������among'the light-fingered so haphazard  a   method   would   not  pay.      Instead,  when opportunity is lacking, the "dip"  supplies opportunity.    And to this end  he works in a "mob"���������������������������this being pickpocket   nomenclature - for   a   party   of  four,   five",   or   more���������������������������employing   some  very  exact routine methods,  or, when  necessary, inventing'some new kink to  fit the particular case.

Let us back to thc cocksure Englishman. The machinery used against him,  though rather common-place, illustrates  the basic mode of procedure.  To begin with, our friend had scarcely stepped from his expensive hotel before he was spotted as a "mark." He  was well dressed and so presumably  he hrtd_ money^ITe was sauntering  along and hence would bc"easy"to"get"  to."' Hurried pedestrians have no  time to tall into traps.  Tho first move was to discover wheth-  er he had a timepiece worth tho risk of  going after. Nowadays tho "dip" is  not to be fooled by resplendent attire.  Many an ornament to the profession is  now pulverizing stones who went after  a "swell" and got uabbed lifting a  dollar watch.  And so this victim was patie'utly  trailed until he stopped for the omni-1 illustration   of   this,  and   also   of   the  -'-���������������������������-���������������������������-'--   -���������������������������- -      thoroughness   with   which   pickpockets  will laj- out a campaign, was  brought  to light early last fall.  the mob is big enough, the timepiece  is immediately passed to the "getaway." He lives up to his professional  title, and if the victim by any mischance should miss his watch _and  "squeal," the police will not discover  evidence of any of the actors in the  comody!  A despicable example of this "car  cleaniug," as the argot of the profession has it, occurred in New York recently, the victims being poor sweatshop operators who live in tho ghetto  aud work on the West Sido. Friday  night is pay night, and with this������������������ i'n  view several mobs, aggregating in all  about fifty pickpockets, combined for  a "big trim." Four to six "dips"  rode on each street/ :ar crowded with  tbe work-people, and carefully observed  where they stowed their pay-envelopes  after paying fare. Presently ".rough-  house" fights began in all the cars. Women and children were trampled and  their clothing torn. But what cared  the "dips" if a few suffered minor injuries? Their harvest was too gratifying to "admit of sentiment! In -fact,  some of thom made the mistake of being too greedy. They started to repeat  the trips. And'meanwhile some of the  first victims had "squealed" to the  police and every available man wes  sent from headquarters.. The extent of  that "mobbing" may be computed  from "the fact that 6ome twenty-five  of the "crooks" were caught at work.  Since that night, the police report, the  timid ghetto workers sew their money  tight before starting homeward; "and  it is a foregone conclusion that no sane  "dip" will attempt a "repeat'.' for  a 'long time to come.

'���������������������������  . -No* "ma'tter, how it is. accomplished,  this "practice of diverting the prospec-"  tive^.victim's attention.is the keystone  of ��������������������������� the whole science. It is not new  in theory, .but it'has been vastly-developed and accurately shaped to modern conditions. To accomplish the diversion physically, as in the case -of  the blow with the satchel on our Englishman, is perhaps- the most popular  with the fraternity. It makes no difference -.whether it be a stamp on a  pet corn, a dig in the ribs with an umbrella, a jolting collision; the impression given is always strong enough to  eclipse'-any. impressiorr'from the'gentle  contact of the "dip's" trained fingers.  For_illustration,-a-man-might-fall-and  break his arm and never notice, during  the excitement, that he had bruised his  knee at the same time. '  And one never may tell how such  an impression is going to be delivered.  There was one woman "stall," who  travelled thc country, who used to  promenade with a terrier on a long  leash. Once u victim was "spotted"  the canine, being trained, would circle  about the victim's legs, tangling him in  the-leash;-During tne~untangling pro--  ccss, assisted by Samaritan passers-by,  thc "dip." who was one of them,  found it "child robbing" as they dub  it, to explore successfully. Only whon  the police awoke to thc singular coincidence of a dog being present iu so  many cases" was the young woman suspected.  Strictly mental thrills are more difficult to prearrange, but, when properly  carried  ont,  arc  equally  efficient.    An  were busily sorting enough watches and  jewelry to stock a small store.  Investigation showed that at all the  fair towns previously looted the thrilling balloon act had appeared. Evidently the thieves had followed that  act around in order to work the crowds  as they gazed aloft, nerves on edge and  dazzled by the sun. It was obvious,  as well, that the reason the police had  failed was because they had beer* too  interested in the sensational act to  notice what was going on.  Then tho surprising part of the  whole plot came out when one of the  younger "dips," boing suddenly stricken with appendicitis and afraid of  death, decided to ease his conscience,  lie explained that the real leader of  thc mob ,was the daring aoronaut. In  order to keep continually at work and  thus supply his pals with uninterrupted  opportunity, he had boen securing con-  socutive engagements by putting on his  act for a ridiculously -low price.  The' fact that comparatively few-  pickpockets are arrested and fewer still  convicted in no wise indicates that they  are limited in number or activity.  Where there is ono arrest thero are  many complaints lodged with the police. , Nor does the. number of complaints tell the whole tale. Expert  pickpockets aim to turn the trick in  such a way that the victim will think  hc .lost his valuables. Easily one-half  the ads. in the lost.and found columns  are due to'this mistake.. Again, many  persons knowing that they were robbed  seal their lips because they fear that  they w-ill be laughed.at.  During a recent automobile show in  New York-a pair of "dips" . worked  a strikingly ingenious game.'Just when  the crowd was at its greatest one evening, the pair, garbed in_ evening clothes  and wearing expensive automobile coats  started from the upper end of the hall  toward the exit. One of them was  drunk���������������������������depressingly so. You pitied  his companion who tried to keep him on  his feet. But, despite his efforts, the  mellow'''one would every little while  lurch into parties of .ladies,and gent-lemon. It kept the sober one busy apologizing. And it happened that'before  any one of the score or more of persons  who had been bumped into discovered  the loss of his or her.valuables, the pair  .we're =out of -the'-, halt,~:and; s_afely taway.  "While most,_"dips" will take"'anything that - looks easy, yet practically  every one has his speciality. He trains  for it; that is why. he accomplishes the  seemingly impossible. "One goes for  watches. He can" break a strong chain  ���������������������������with his" fingers Tor,_if it be too heavy,  may-utilize a- pair, of- powerful-cutting  nippers-that work-, noiselessly. Failing  this, he .will unring -the watch at the  stem -as -easily_ as'".one would  crack  a  peanut, and".with'-less" noise. --',-.   -  *  \>-*     ^    - - _ -       -   ,   -  Some-of the'.most dexterious.operators  have, a rlea'ning,_toward scarf-pins and  diamond-studs.' Perhaps,_the most popu-'  lar of the.methods by^which he,achieves  his.end is known as-the--,'newspaper  stall,'' worked,i> usually,- _.ihi crowded  street cars.:/. One of-.the "stalls,"- deep  in the perusal ��������������������������� of a'newspaper,*' holds- it  in such a'way*'-:that - the edge- rests  against ..the 'chinFofsthe.'.yictirn: "Under  this -. cover-th'e7" dip "-removes the' pin  or-stud."

These  "dips" use their," fingers "where they  can;", but are not averse from-cutting  through "clothing when the victim hides  his bank-rool in an inside pocket. The  money is, of course, first located. The  chap out to "do" the towu who seeks  to impress beholders by flashing rolls  of bills in cafes is thc easiest mark  of all. . .Again', the cautionvof the prospective victim will often be the thing  that enlightens the" "crook." It is a  f ivrvgu 1 SnTT actfn ha tTTiTO'st^person'^caTry  bus. Then enters the demnro young  lady. She was what is called the "placer" for the mob. A glimpse at the  timepiece told her it was "plush"���������������������������  that is, valuable���������������������������and incidentally she  learned where the gentleman carritd it.  and also whether there was a so-called  safety device. This is easy for the  "dip]" provided ho knows in advance;  in fact they help him by lending the  victim over-coufidence.  This information gained, the young  lady signaled it to the rest of her mob  and entered the omnibus. She had a  further part. The belligerent young  men were "stalls," thciT fight part of  the system. Confusion ensues immediately, to be sure, but the psychological moment for getting tho watch has  not arrived. It is the young lady wjith  the heavy satchel who supplies that.  The blow she deals the victim is amply  heavy to turn his attention for a moment. And then, as he" reels back  against tho youth with the book, the  latter, who is the "gun," tr the chief  "dip," gets his hand to the watch  with lightning expertness ancl the affair  is practically over.    To bo sure, where  With the opening of the county fair  season, the police of various small  towns in New York, Pennsylvania, and  Ohio began to be flooded with complaints of pocket-picking. Try as they  would the police seemed unable to  make arrests; and it was surmised that  some fair followers were involved, and  word to that effect passed-along the  line. Thc managers of one of the fairs  decided to take extra precautions and  brought on a detective from Philadelphia. For two days he sleuthed un-  availing!}*, though the pocket-picking  went on.  Now one of the free attractions was  a balloon ascension and paraehute leap  by an aoronaut who did daredevil trapeze stunts during his flight. It was the  third day, while this act was on, that  the city* sleuth detected a pickpocket  at work. Instead of arresting him at  once, he shndowed him to a rendezvous  where he was joiued by several other  men.    Whon the police drew down they  iug something unusuallycvaluable will,  particularly if they be on guard against  pickpockets, pass their hands over tho  hiding-place at intervals to be sure  it is still intact. The "dip" needs no  stronger hint.  Others have their bank-roll spotted  as they make purchases in a store.  Clerks who draw pay-rolls from certain  banks every woek arc watched until it  is-knowii- that7lhey._always_."carry .the.  money in the same way and take thc  same route back to their offices. Then  a "stall" i.s planted for their benefit.  One young messenger lost eight hundred dollars not long ago, because he  stopped to expostulate indignantly with  a man who was cuffing a forlorn news-  girl. In tho. pushing, jostling crowd  lhat gathorod there was scarce room to  breathe, and the clerk had gone a block  after disentangling himself before he  so much as gave a thought to the'moncy.  Even then he would have been the las-tone to suspect a poor, crying child of  being in  league with  pickpockets.  The truth of the matter is that the  slums of every big city are juvenile  recruiting stations for the profession.  Police records bristle with reports of  thc arrest of what they term "Fa-  gins"���������������������������that is to say, instructors of  street urchins in the science of picking  pockets. These tutors arc ex-"dips,"  experts too old to operate or whose  fingers have stiffened, this, singularly,  being a misfortune that overtakes  many of the cleverest pickpockets.  Their reward is half the loot secured  by thc pupil during his or her "apprenticeship.  What is termed "moll buzzing'*' is  the first accomplishment taught the pupils. If your wife or sister, or you,  yourself, have ever opened your handbag while shopping, to make the surprising discovery that all your money.  ha������������������ disappeared, you may safely lay  it to the "moll buzzer," Usually this  is left to children; though during the  holiday shopping season, when pocket-  book*.'are obese, the older "dips" find  it profitable. Moll-buzzing in theory  is very simple, consisting only of opening the bag, abstracting the contents,  and closing the bag again; but to ac-"  complish it without attracting attention calls for "considerable training. To  avoid any suddeu jerk the buzzer-gets  in step with the victim! Then, holding  the bag with one hand, hc opens it with  the other. Since the suddenly lightened bag might attract attention, the  buzzer bears slightly upon it for a  moment, gradually oasing the weight  until hc may safely let go altogether.  To acquire the necessary doxterity  children are patiently coached by tho  "Fagin," who struts about a room  with a bag on his wrist, rewurding tho  skilful, meting out punishment when  he feels the slightest movement, unlos-i  the pupil is a beginner.  Last summer there was broken up  a mob of juvenile "dips",, that had  been using a most ingenious method at  various excursion-boat landings. On  Sundays, in particular, crowds of working people assembled at the docks loaded down with lunch baskots, and invariably with money tucked away for  the day's outing. Then presently  through the crowd would come a crowd  of boys, dodging- here and there in a.  hilarious game of tag, "Of course a  victim' had been spotted, probably  while buying tickets. Before him would  dash a boy with deafening whoops.  Tie others pursue him. Round the victim -they revolve with bewildering  "shrieks and actions. " It would make  anyone dizzy. Moanwhile ono of the  boys has lifted- the money. Ho yells  something, and off dashes the band,  still playing the game. - Now, suppose  the victim discovers his loss, would hc  lay it to those innocent boys?"Hardly.  And if he should,,and pursues them,  would .bystanders be unkind enough to  intercept poor children at play? At auy-  rate it would be a chase in vain. That  elderly' man" standing by���������������������������who is the  "Fagin"���������������������������has the procoeds safely  stowed away.  It is impossible to know what game  will be utilized, and positively dangerous for anyone to believe he is above  being imposed upon..' To overconfidence  in this, respect many a victim owes the  loss of valuables.  " One, evening-not long-ago a seasoned  salesman - alighted' flat* 'Grand/-.Central  Station,-' Newr York.'" Ho - was vd super-  sophisticated7individual*.of 'the" carelessly alert' type.

Then ah''amusing, accident occurred.  As-the first young man stepped'through  the door the car "jerked" ahead,-jolting  a> package of books'from his arm.'-He  stooped suddenly, to-'catclr them. The  salesman, "immediately behind," " and  hampered "with a -bag, stumbled' over  him", while from"behind'the two others,  after the fashion of" ton pins, lurched  into the tangle.' Laughing apologies  were exchanged,. when there camo a  sharp interruption. ���������������������������  Down the- car 'advanced two detectives showing their badges. They announced that the three young-men had  been attempting.to pick the traveller's  pockets. Much indignation on tho part  of the accused, and angry protestations  of innocence. The traveller- was the  most indignant of all. * ,--  "His pockets' picked? "Well, he rather  guessed not!  _=^Yould^.tii-_--gcn-tleman=.obIige-tli'*-deJL  something of the modus operandi of  the "dips," he.planned out an ingenious trap.  Gutting up paper to the size of bank-  bills, he made it into a fat rojl, wrapping the outside in a .one-dollar bill.  This he displayed carelessly in tbe  ferry-house, dropping in into his outside pocket. Now watch thc "dips"  fall to temptation!  For an hour he was very watchful  and industrious, pushing through the  densest crowds" and scrutinizing each  suspicious face. But nothing happened.  Hc folt that the roll was still undisturbed. Evidentby there wore no pickpockets around or else the bait had not  boon   discovered.  Then Mr. Sleuth reached in his pocket  and drew forth���������������������������a surprise.
