ENDERBY PRESS "AND ."WALKER'S WEEKLY  ONE WAY OUT  B^WILLIAM CARLETON  Copyright 1911  [By Small,'Maynard & Co., Inc.  A  CHAPTER  XV.���������������������������(Continued)  The Gang  T any rate 1 found myself at the  head of twenty men���������������������������all Italians,  all strangers and among them  three or four just off the steamer. My  first job was on a foundation for an  apartment house. Or' course my part  in it was the very humble one of seeing that the men kept at work digging. The work had all been staked  out and the architect's agent -was there  to give all incidental instructions. He  -was a young graduate of a technical  school find I took the opportunity thus  offered���������������������������for he was a good-natured boy  ���������������������������to use what little 1 had learned in  ��������������������������� my night school and study his blue  prints. At odd times he explained  tliem to me and aside from what I  learned myself from them it helped  me to direct thc men more intelligently.  But it was on the men themselves  that I centred my efforts. As soon  as possible 1 learned them by name.  At the noon hour 1 took my lunch  with them and talked with them in  their own language. I made a note  of where they lived and found as I  expected that many were from my  ward. incidentally 1 dropped a word  here and there about the "Young  American Political Club," and asked  them to come around to some of the  meetings. 1 found out where they  came from and wherever 1 could, I as-,  sociated them with some of their fellows with whom 1 had worked. I  ,found out about their families. In  brief I made myself known to every  man of them as intimately as was possible.  I don't suppose for a minute that I  could have done this successfully if  I hadn't really been genuinely interested in them. If I had gone at it  like a professional hand shaker they  would have detected the hyprocrisy in  no time. Neither did I attempt a  chummy attitude nor a fatherly attitude. I made it clearly understood  that I -was an - American first of all  and that I was their boss. It was  perfectly easy to do this and at the  same time treat them like men and like  units. I tried to make them feel that  instead of being merely a bunch of  Dagoes they were Italian workingmen.  .Your foreign laborer is quick to appreciate such a distinction and quick  to respond,.to it. With the American-  born you have to-draw a sharper line  ' and'hold a steadier rein. I figured out  that when you find "a member of the  second" or third generation still digging, you've found a man with something wrong "about him..  The   next thing I did was to   learn  what   each   man   could   do   best.      Of  course,    I    could    make    only    broad  classifications.      Still  there were men  better af lifting than others; men better with  the crowbar;   men  better  at  shovelling;  men   naturally   industrious  who would leaven a group" of three or  four lazy ones.     As well as 1 could I  , sorted them out in this way.  ''    In addition to taking this personal interest in them individually, I based my  relations  with  them collectively on  a  principle  of sticf,. homely justice.      I  found   thero  was  no  quality  of-.such  universal appeal at this one of justice.  Whether dealing  -.with    Italians, Russians, Portuguese, Poles, Irish or Irish-  Americans you could ahvays get below  their    national    peculiarities    if    you  reached    this    common    denominator.  However browbeaten, however  slavish,  they  had   been   in   their  former   lives  =t-his=spt*Fk-seemed^al-w^i-ys=ali-v-e^==lLavv'^  ever cocky  or anarchistic  they might  feel  in  their new  freedom  you  could  pull them up with a sharp turn by an  appeal lo their sense of justice.     And  by justice I mean nothing but what ex-  President   Roosevelt   has   now   made  familiar by the phrase "a square deal."  Justice in the abstract might not appeal   to   thorn,   but   they   knew   when  they were boing treated fairly and when  .they were.nQj.._   Also .thoy know when  thoy wero treating you fairly nnd when  thoy   wore   not.      1   never   allowed   a  man to fool bullied or abused;  1 never  gave a sharp order without an explanation.     J never discharged a man without making him feci guilty in his heart  no manor how much ho protested with  his lips.     And I never discharged him  without making tlie othor men clearly  son his guilt.      When a man wont, ho  loft,  no  sympathizers  liohind  liim.  On tho othor hand 1 made them act  justly towards thoir employer and towards mo.     I taught thom lhat justice ^superiors  hesitate to do a little work myself now  and then. If at any point another man  seemed to be needed to help over a  difficulty I jumped in. I not only often  saved the useless efforts of three or  four men in this way but I convinced  them that 1 too had my employers' interests at heart. My object wasn't  simply to earn my day's pay, it was to  finish the job wo wero on in the shortest possible time. It makes a big difference whether a man feels he is  working by the day or by the job. 1  tried to make them feel that we were  all working by the job.  Without boasting 1 think 1 can say  that we cut down the contractor's estimate by at least a full day. 1 'know  they had to do some hustling io get the  pile-drivers to the spot on time.  On the next job 1 had to begin all  over again with a new gang. It seemed a pity that all my work on the  other should be wasted, but J didn't say  anything. For two months I took each  time thc men 1 had and did my best  with them. I had my reward in finding myself placed at the head of a constantly increasing force. 1 also found  that I was being sent on all the hurry-  up work. I learned something every  day. Finally when the time seemed  ripe 1 went to the contractor's agent  with the proposition towards which I  had all along been working. This was'  that I should be allowed to hire my own  men.  The agent was sceptical at first about  the wisdom of entrusting such power  as this to a subordinate, but I put my  case to him squarely. i said in brief  that I was sure I could pick a gang  of fifty men who would do the work  of seventy-five. 1 told him that i'or a  year now I had been making notes on  the best workers and 1 thought 1 could  secure them. But I would have to do  it'myself. It would be only through  my personal influence with them thai  they could be got. He raised several  objections but 1 finally said:  "Let me try it anyhow. The men  won''t cost you any more than the  others and if I don't make good it's  easy enough to go back to the old way.'  It's queer how stubbornly business  men cling to routine. They get stuck  in a system and hate to change. He  finally gave me permission to see the  men. I was then,, to turn them over  to the. regular paymaster who would  engage them. " This was all I ..wanted  and with my note book 1 started-out.  It was no.easy job for me and for a  week Irhad to cut out my night school  and give all my time to it. Many of  the men had moved and others had  gone into other work, but I kept at it  night after night, trotting from one end  of the city to the other until I rounded up about thirty of them. This seemed to me enough to form a core. I  could pick up others from time to time  as 1 found them. The men remembered me and when I told them something of my plan they all agreed with  a grin to report for work as soon as  they were free. And this was how  Carleton's gang happened to be formed.  It'took me about three months to put  all my fifty men into- good working  order and it wasn't for a year that 1  had'my machine where 1 wanted it. But  it was a success from the start. At  the end of a year I learned that even  fhe contractor himself began to speak  with some pride of Carleton's gang.  And he used it. He used it hard. In  fact he made something of a special  feature of it. It began to bring aim  emergency business. Wherever speed  was a l*n"lrcrocrfl-iiil7rhe=sc-eiired=l-h8=eon--=  tract through my gang. He used us  altogether for foundation work and his  business increased so rapidly that we  wero never idle. I became proud ot  my men and my reputation.  But of course this success���������������������������this proof  that my idea, was a good one���������������������������only  whetted my appetite for the big goal  still ahead of mo. . 1 was eager for the  day when this group of men should  mi Ily l.o.Curletun's.gang. __ It was.hard  in a way to see thc result of my own  thought nnd work turning out big profits for another when all 1 needed was  a littlo oapltal to make it my own.  Still 1 know I must bo patient. There  woro many things yot that I must learn  before I should bo competent to undertake contraot.-; for myself. In the  meanwhile I of'tild satisfy niy ambition'  by constantly strengthening and pi infecting tho maohlno.  Then. too. t round that, tho gang was  '������������������������������������������������������ringing me into closer touch wilh my  one day I was called to the  must bo on both sides. 1 tried to  mako thom understand that thoir part  was not to seo how little work thoy  could do for thoir money and that mine  was not lo soo how much thoy could  do, but that it was up to both of us  to turn out a full fair day's work. They  were not a chain gang, but workmen  soiling thoir labor. Just as they expected tlie store-keepers to sell them  fair measure and full'weight, so I expected them to sell a full day and honest effort.  It wasn't ahvays possible lo secure  a result, but when it wasn't I got rid  of that man on the first occasion. It  was very much easier to handle in this  way. the'freedom-loving foreigners than  1 looked for; with the American-born  it was harder than I expected.  On the whole, however, I was mighty  well pleased. 1 certainly got a lot of  work- out of thom without in any way  pushing thom. They didn't sweat for  mo and I didn't want thom to���������������������������but thoy  kept steadily at thoir work from morning  until  night.      Then,  too,  I  didn't  ollioi: of tho firm and there I met lhe  two mon who until now had been nothing to mo but two names. For a  yoar I had stared at those names painted in black on white boards and posted  about the grounds of evory job upon  which 1 had worked. 1 had never  thought of thorn as human beings so  much as some hidden force���������������������������like the  unseen dynamo of a power plant. Thoy  wore both Irish-Americans���������������������������strong,  prosperous-looking men. Somehow  thoy mado mc distinctly conscious of  my own ancestry. I don't moan that  I was over-proud���������������������������in a way "I don't  suppose thore was anything to boast of  in the Carlctons���������������������������but-as I stood before  those men in thc position of a minor  employee I suppose that unconsciously  I looked for something in my past to  offset my present humiliating situation.  And from a business point of view, it  was humiliating. The Carlctons had  boon in this country two hundred years  and those mon but twenty-live or thirty  and yot I was the man who slood while  thoy faced me in their easy chairs be  fore their roll-top desks. It was then  that I was glad to remember there hadn't been a war in this country in which  a Carleton had not played his part.  I held myscif a little bettor for the  thought.  They were unaffected and businesslike, but when they spoke it was plain  "Carleton" and when I spoke it was  "Mr. Corkery," or "Mr. Galvin." That  was right and proper enough.  They had called mc in to consult with  mo on a big job which they wero trying  to figure down to thc very lowest point.  Thoy were willing to get out of it with  the smallest possible margin of profit  for the advertisement it would give  them ancl in view of future contracts  with the same firm which it might  bring. The largest item in it was tho  handling of the dirt. They showed'me  their blue prims and their rough estimate and then Mr. Corkery said:  "How much can you take off that,  Carleton?"  1 told him I would need two or three  hours  to  figure  it  out.      He  called  a  clerk.  "Give Carleton -a desk," he said.  Then he turned to me:  "Stay"here until you've done it," he  said.  It took me all the forenoon.     I worked carefully because it seemed to me  that hero was a big chance to  prove  myself.     I worked at those figures as  though I had every dollar I ever hoped  to have at stake.      I didn't trim it as  close as ]   would  have done for myself, but as it was I took off a fifth���������������������������  the matter    of five    thousand dollars.  When I came back, Jlr. Corkery looked  over my figures.  "Sure you can do that?" he asked.  .1 could see-he was surprised.  "Yes, sir," I' said.  "I'd hate like hell to get stuck," he  said.  "You won't got stuck," I answered.  "It  isn't  the  loss I mind,"  he said,  "but���������������������������well there Is a firm or two that is  waiting to give me lhe laugh."  "They won't laugh," I said.  He looked at me a moment and then  called in a clerk.  "Have those figures put in shape,"  he said, "and send-in this bid."  Corkery secured the contract. I  picked one hundred men. The morn,-  ing we began I held a sort of convention.  "Men," I said, "I've promised to do  this in so-many days. " They say.-we  can't do it. If we don't, here's where  they laugh at the gang."  We did it. I never heard from Corkery about it, but when we were through  I thanked tho gang and I found them  more truly mine than they had ever  been before.  Every Saturday night 1 brought home  ,my fifteen dollars, and Ruth took out  three for the rent, five for household  expenses, and put seven in the ginger  jar. We had one hundred and thirty  dollars" in the bank before thc raise  came, and after this if increased rapidly. There wasn't a week we didn't  put aside seven dollars, and sometimes  eight. The end of my first year as an  emigrant found me with the following  items 10 my credit: Ruth, the boy and  myself in better health than we had  ever been; Ruth's big mother-love finding outlet in the neighborhood; the boy  alert and ambitious; myself with the  beginning of a good technical education, to say nothing of the rudiments  of a new language, with a loyal gang  of one hundrod men and two hundred  dollars in cash.  This inventory does not take into ac-  c^D^iT'mj'=inTr\Nr^friendSf=-my=nev.'-=mental=  and spiritual outlook upon life, or my  enhanced self-respect. Such things  cannot be calculated.  The first yoar was, of course, the important year���������������������������the big yoar. It proved  what could be done, and nothing remained now but time in which to do it.  It established the evident Pact that if a  \w, uneducated foreigner can come to  this country and succeed, a native-born  witli-c-xperiunce plus, intelligence ought  to do lho same thing more rapidly. But  it had taught me that what the native-born must do Is to simplify his  standard of living, take advantage of  the same opportunities, toll with tho  sumo spirit, and free himsolf from thc  burdensome bonds of caste. The advantage i.s all with thc pioneer, the adventurer, tho emigrant. Those are tho  real children of the republic���������������������������hero in  tho cast, at any rate. livery landing  dock is Plymouth Rock to them. They  are the real forefathers of tho coming  century, because they possess all thc  rugged strength or settlers. Thoy arc  making thoir own colonial history.  merely seeking experience. But Dick  did not fall into any of these classes.  This was what" made his proposal the  more remarkable to me. It meant that  he was willing to take just a plain  every-day plugging job.  , And underlying this willingness was  the spirit that was resurrecting us all.  Instead of acting on the defensive,  Dick was now eager to play the aggressive, game. I hadn't looked for  this spirit to show in him so soon, in  his life outside of school. I was mighty  well pleased.  "All right," I said, "what do you  think you can do?"  "I've talked with some of the fellows," ho said, "and the surest thing  seems to bo soiling papers."  I gave a gasp at that. I hadn't yet  lost the fooling* that a newsboy was a  sort of cross between an orphan and a  beggar. He was to mo purely an object of pity. Of course I'd formed this  notion like a good many others from  the story books and the daily paper. I  connected a newsboy with blind fathers  and sick mothers if hc had any parents at all.  "I guess you can get something better than that to do," I said.  "What's the matter with selling papers?" he asked.  . When I stopped to think of-the work  in that way���������������������������as just the buying and  selling of papers���������������������������I couldn't see anything the matter with it. Why wasn't it like buying and selling anything?  You wore selling a product in which  millions of money was invested, a product which everyone wanted, a product  where you gave your customers their  money's worth. The only objection I  could think of at the moment was that  there was so little in it.  "It will keep you on the streets five  or six hours a day," I said, "and I  don't suppose you can make more than  a dollar a week."  X-RAYS   AND   ANATOMY  The X-rays have been surpassed as  a means of studying the ���������������������������internal anatomy  of man  and  animals.    That is  tho practical result of a new discovery  by Professor Karl Werner Spalteholz,  who  saturates  with  various  essential  oils the bones and tissues to be examined, with the result that they become  transparent.   In this way every detail  of  the  structure,   the  interior  of  the  bones,   the   nerves   and   blood-vessels,  etc., can be seen in all their wonderful  ramifications and beauty.   Thc X-rays  merely  enable   the  various  tissues  to  be seen as a more or less defined dark  mass,  with  the  bones as  well-defined  opaque   shadows.    Tho  difference  between the two processes i.s that, while  the X-rays can  bc used for studying  living   tissues,    Professor   Spullcholsi's  method, has, up lo now,-been limited to,  dead animals and parts of animals.    It  now,  therefore,  remains lo discover a  way   in   whieh   those  strong  oils  can  bc  injected,   without  injury,   into  the  living tissues to make possible the illumination   of   the  various  organs  of  our anatomy, to the groat advance of  medical science.   As i,t is, a groat advantage accrues to science from Professor  Spultcholz's  system,  for  it  reveals lho anatomy tissues in a perfect  manner, and thus obviates  the necessity of dissection for thc making of a  thorough examination.   Hitherto in the  case of a death from heart disease, for  instance, the heart has hail to be dissected to sec the exact changes wliich  had taken place.    Henceforth, all that  is   necessary   will   be   that   tho   heart  shall be treated wilh the essential oils,  when  it will  become possible  to  look  through   it and  study  it   as  a  whole.  Further,   the  whole  skull,   so  treated,  can be studied without dissecting.  HIS START.IN   LIFE  one  two  cent  cent  "A dollar a week!" he said. "Do you  know whal one fellow in our class  makes right through the year?"  "How much?" I asked.  "He makes .between six and eight  dollars a week," said Dick.  "That doesn't sound possible," I said.  "He told me he made that." And  another fellow he knows about did as  well as this even while he was in college. He pretty nearly paid his own  way."  "What do you make on a paper?" I  asked.  "About half a cent on the  papers,  and  a  cent   on  the  papers."  "Then these boys have to sell over  two hundred papers a day.".  "Thoy have.about a hundred regular  customers," said Dick, "and they sell  another  hundred  papers  besides."  It seemed to'me the boys" must have  exaggerated-..because .eight dollars a  week was pretty nearly the pay of an  able-bodied man." Tt didn't seem" possible that these youngsters whom I'd  pitied alljmy life could earn such an  income. However, if thoy didn't earn  half as "much, it wasn't a bad proposition for a lad.  (To be continued).  PINERO'S METHODS  In reply to a question put to Pinero,  the playwright once said: "I ahvays  stage-manage my plays before I go to  the theatre. 1 have all my notes and  instructions in lhe book I carry there.  Yes, occasionally J use dummies when  working at homo to represent characters���������������������������little pieces of cardboard, to fix  the relative positions of the people in  the scene���������������������������but as a rule I find this unnecessary; one can generally carry  them in tho eye."  Whon a manager accepts a play  from Sir Arthur Pinero he gets much  more than the mere delivery of the  completed work.

So wise were they, so close to nature  and the soul of existence, that they  were like lo half gods, having powers  that were supermortal.  They were old men, and their favor-'  ite enjoyment was the game of life.  It was played upon a bamboo stage  by characters of thoir own devising,  and the wonderful thing about it was  that thc breath of the half gods gave  life to these puppets of the play. Lest  harm should come from this, however,  thoy li'ad solemnly agreed that when  the game was ended the actors should  be returned to soulless wood and  senseless* clay.  But, one day,-Yen fashioned-a pup-'  pet of such'unusual cleverness thatit  fascinated him and when it came time-  to destroy the players he hastily took  away   this   thing   that   he.- loved- and ���������������������������  hid it.behind him.        - "     . _������������������������������������������������������      "  "Wait,"   said' -Yun'7 "where   is   the'  fiend,  the red  thing thoiu'callest Sin,  pointed -ears and  the  split  thc  swirling  tail?

At that the fiend thrust its sharp  teeth into his hands and he screamed  and dropped it. Then it leaped inlo  the jungle ancl disappeared.  - So, through -.'selfishness ". and deceit  and treachery, the evil one was turned*  loose upon the world.

They operated as road-agents on highways  leading out of Virginia City, New, and  other mining towns in lhat region. It  was in the early sixties and public  peace ollicers were powerless to cope  with the criminals. Realizing the necessity of taking the law into their  own hands, courageous and peace-loving citizens organized themselves into  a secret band of Vigilantes, ancl busied  themselves with apprehending and  ending all of Plummer's gang.  Soon after the organization the Virginia City Vigilantes were informed  that Bill Hunter had been seen in the  Gallatin Valley. It was reported that;  he sought a covert among the rocks  and brush, where he remained during  the day, stealing out at night and seeking food among the scattered settlers,  as he could find it. His place of concealment was about twenty miles from  the-mouth of the.Gallatin River. A  number of the Vigilantes, under the  pretense of joining the Barney Hughes  stampede.'to a new placer discovery,  left 'Virginia City, and scoured the  country for a distance of sixty miles  or more, in search of the missing ruffian.

The first day they  crossed the divide between the Pas-  sam-a-ri and the Madison, camping  that night on the bank ot' the latter  river, wliich thoy had forded with great  difficulty. The weather was intensely  cold, and their blankets afforded but  feeble protection against it. They built  a large camp-fire, and lay down as  near to it as safety would permit. One  of their number spread his blankets on  the slope of a little hillock .next the  fire, and during the night slipped down  until his feet encountered the hot embers. The weather increased in severity tho next day during most of which  the Vigilantes' rode? through a fierce  mountain snow-storm," with, the wind  directly in their faces. At'two o'clock  p.m. they halted for supper at the Milk  ranch, about -twenty miles from" the  place whore they expected to find the  fugitive. Under the, guidance of a  man whom they employed here," they  then ^.pushed- on. at "a rapid pace; the  storm gathering in fury, as they progressed. . At-midnight- they drew up"  near a lone cabin in the neighborhood  of, the rocky jungle where their game  had taken cover. -  ' '  '-'This -v storm .has -certainly,;,routed  him," said one of'tlie Vigilantes." "Ten  to one, we bag him in the cabin." '  "Very likely,"' replied another. "He  would not suspect danger- in such wea-'  ther. It will save us a heap of  trouble.".  One of the 'men tapped loudly at the  cabin-door. Opening it slowly, a look  of amazement stole over the features  of the inmate as he surveyed the company of six' mounted,  armed  men.  //Good   evening,"   said   one,   saluting'  him.  "Don't know whether it is 'or not,"  growled 'the man, evidently suspicious  that a visit at so late an, hour meant  mischief.  "Build us a fire, man," said the Vigilante. "We are nearly frozen, and this  is tho only place,of shelter from this  storm for many miles. Surely' you  won't play the churl to a party' of  weather-bound prospectors."  =R ea ss u r ed=by=t h i s=hoa r ly=t e"pr oof "=f bir  his  seeming  unkindncss,  lho man  set  out upon the six armed mon, asking in  the same breath:  "Who's there?"  Six shotguns leveled at his head answered  the question.  "Give us your revolver, ancl get up,"  was the command. Hunter instantly  complied.  7'You are arrested as one of Plummer's band of road-agents."  "I hope," said Hunter, "you will take  me to Virginia City." A Vigilante assented.  "What conveyance have you for me?"  "There," said one, pointing to a  horse, "is the animal you must ride."  The prisoner put on his hat and overcoat, and mounted the horse. Just as  he was about to seize the reins, a Vigilante took them from his hands, saying, with affected suavity,  "If you please, I'll manage these for  you.   You've only to sit still and ride."  After the company started, ihe robber cast a suspicious glance behind  him, and saw one man following on  foot. His countenance fell. ,The expression told in stronger language than  words that the thought which harassed him was that he would, not be  taken to Virginia City. About two  miles distant from the cabin, the  company drew up and dismounted under a solitary tree. Scraping away the  snow, they kindled a-fire and prepared  their breakfast, of which the robber  partook with them, and seemed to' forget his fears, and laughed and joked  as if no danger were nigh. Breakfast  over, the Vigilantes held a brief consultation as to the disposition' which  should be made- of the prisoner. On  putting the question to vote, it was  decided by tho votes of all but the person who had signified to Hunter that  he was 'to be taken to Virginia City,  that his execution should take place  instantly.  , Hunter was the last of Plummer's  "band 'that- foil into -the hands of the  Vigilantes. The man was not destitute of redeeming qualities. He often  worked hard in^ the mines for the  money he lost at the gaming-table, but  in an evil hour he joined Plummer's  gang, and aided in the commission of  many infamous crimes. * In his per-  sqnal-intercoursehe was known to per-'  fo'rrri many kind acts. I-Ie" admitted,  just before his death,'the,justice of his  sentence, lt is believed that in his escape through the.'pickots at-Virginia"  City he was' assisted by some of- the  Vigilantes who did not "credit.'his -guilt."  The death-of Hunter marked the bloody  close :of the'.-rcign -of Plummer's. band.  He .was the last of'that- terrible organization to fall'" a victim, "to ".Vigilante  justice.- When they were out of the  way the crack-of pistols ceased and  the people felt safe,to go about their  business as if they were in'any-well-  ordered community. _   . y.  Skill in wing and snap work, too, will  load to the bagging of many a bounding deer that would otherwise escape.  Two things, however, are imperative  if the sportsman would bc successful  in killing big game, or prove a dangerous antagonist in war���������������������������a thorough  foundation in off-hand firing and much  practice in judging distances and  shooting over unknown ranges.  In off-hand there are several styles  of holding a rifle, only one of which is  'really valuable to the hunter. We  have off-hand with arm extended, offhand with body rest, and off-hand with  hip rest. It is well known that a  target rifle shot may be a very indifferent performer on game, and while  there are other reasons'for this, one  of the best ones is that he adopts a  position that cannot be used in hunting. Off-hand, extended arm, the common manner of holding a shot-gun, is  lhe only style in which the rifleman  should train himsolf if his practice is  to avail him in the woods ancl mountains.  The body rest mighrbe termed the  military off-hand, many soldiers and  truardsmen using it on the range. The  method of .aiming in the body rest i's  to bring the left arm in until it rests  against thc" inflated chest, hand just in  front of the guard, or the latter may  be resting in the palm. In the hip rest  the marksman takes a position that  will throw out the hip upon which he  rests his elbow, supporting his weapon,  preferably on the tips of his fingers  and thumb. The Scheutzen style of  holding a rifle by means of'a palm rest  is-also off-hand, but Scheutzen methods are of no more use in the game  field  than a machine rest.  The soldier or the hunter frequently  needs to place his bullet quickly, if at  all; many times he must catch his  quarry on the run, or it may be in  view but a second or two, whereupon  he must instantly throw his sights upon it and fire. Under the circumstances, posing for the body rest, or  contorting for the' hip rest would be  absurd.  The Scheutzen man is perfectly justified in using his position, for" as a  rule he makes no pretense of being-a  same shot, neither is he trying to de\  velop the sort of skill available in war'  or;sport. ,! Nor can we blame the  soldier for preferring the' body rest;  his officers are '-demanding , sharp-  shooting results, and he must take  advantage of any style of holding permitted under the rules. But when it  comes to stopping a fleeing deer or a  charging' bear, in the words of Perl-  mutter, "that is something else yet,"  and he "must-shove, his sights right'on  to'the mark and "let go the instant the  bead covers." -     -     -   . - "."

Glancing        curiously  around the littlo room, the Vigilantes  discovered that it contained three occupants besides themselves. Placing  their guns and pistols in convenient  position, and stationing a sentinel to  keep watch and food the fire, the men  spread "their" blankets" on the clay"surface of tho'enclosure, and in a fow  moments were locked in sleep, careful,  however, first lo satisfy tho eager curiosity of their entertainers by a "brief  conversation" about mining, stampeding, prospecting, etc., and leading them  to believe thai thoy were a party of  miners returning from an unsuccessful  expedition.

Tho  other, entirely enveloped in blankets,  kept .up a prolonged snore, whoso deep  bass signified that hc was wrapped in  profound slumber.

"Perhaps it's an acquaintance.  Won't you describe him to us?"  The man complied by giving a most  accurate description of Hunter.

The fear so  many had experienced that their  taxes would be oppressively hig*h as a  result of the public improvements of  the past season, must have dissolved  quietly into nothingness. For many  there are who, under the increased  valuation assessment, will not pay as  much as in previous years under the  low valuation assessment, and few  will pay more. True, the owners of  property along the streets where the  local improvement work was done  will have to pay, for that particular  improvement a .special tax in addi-'  tion to the general tax, but all will  feel that they have received good value for the money spent and will mot  i object to the extra oayment. There  ' is one change noted on a red slip at-  i tached to the tax notices. Heretofore it has not been customary to  add interest to the taxes until they  had become delinquent. Now all  taxes not paid on or before Dec. 31st  1912, will bear interest at 8 per cent,  per annum from" that date until paid.  A young man is charged with a  serious crime, is committed for trial  by a magistrate on the evidence of  one witness, and is thrown into jail  to wait for the sessions of a court of  competent jurisdiction. While in ]ail  he contracts a fatal disease, due entirely to the conditions of his confinement. When his trial finally  comes oil he is honorably acquitted.  Incidentally his physicians give him  but a few months to live.  Considered in the abstract, this  would be a very sad case. As a  matter of fact, the above is the skeleton of a case that -vas tried at the  assize court here last week. There is  apparently no redress. The victim  can take a civil action against the  man the jury considered to be a  "false witness." That would not  give him back his health.  There is something radically wrong  with the machinery of law which is  capable of inflicting such a crying injustice.���������������������������Fernie Free Press.

It is true,  the Premier is far in adva'.ce of the  ordinary thought on the situation.  In some quarters his dtmand for  better coast protection is looked upon with sleepy indifference, but there  is no doubt that in future years we  shall have ample proof of the wisdom of the Premier's position on the  question. The protection demanded  by him cannot come too soon; it can  hardly come soon enough.  When in Ottawa a few days ago,  Premier McBride made this statement: "We in British Columbia are  lo_oking_._for___ard to the government's  (UNO fACTOBV.

BELL BLOCK,   ENDERBY  Send in your subscription to the Press 17  i'r.  J'  ii  Thursday, June 6, 1912  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  TZXZH  I :  1-  b.  I'  i1 - --  Hr  PRO BONO PUBLICO  FROM DIFFERENT   VIEW POINTS  Editor The Enderby Press:  Dear Sir:   Possibly the press of today does hot receive cis much faithful advice as it gives.     So a word of  criticism.   In your issue of last week  ���������������������������you devote your editorial column to  what I understand to  I e ridicule of  requiring    the   restaurant to refrain  from a regular, ice cream business on  Sunday.   At the same time'you pass  with a word of faint commendation,  or at  least    without    criticism,   the  number of side-shows which operated  on May 24th,   and    for several days.  I tp ke no exception to the merry-go-  round, or the balloon, or perhaps one  more, but the open and illegal"gambling,   and    the   impudent ..dishonesty  and vulgarity of most of them, were  a disgrace to the occasion and to the  town.   That their presence was a mistake and their tolerance in the town  without restraint for several' days a  ��������������������������� greater mistake goes without saying.  But it may seem better to give attention   to   the    closing    of    an. ice  cream parlor on the day of rest. This  may be funny  or ridiculous;   but no  more so than   for    one-who imbibes  stimulants to find   that on the same  day the    house' licensed to sell will  not supply him unless he first 'have a  gorge of something else.     And yet a  government. so - friendly.- to the trade  as that of B. C. not only mak������������������s such  a law- but gives   loud advertisement  of its   strict   enforcement.     It may  also funny.,  that   in   all other business, also licensed; the simple necessaries of life   are   not open for sale.  And still more - so' that a busy man  coming into   town    in the middle of  the week finds all   places of business  closed.   But  such  customs   and  laws  meet    with   the   approval   of   some  broad-minded, men. -And they maybe  nothing less -.than* sound and practical wisdom.- In'the face of the recent  increase   in-'-lawlessness and��������������������������� Vice.in  this province,': it* might be "more profitable __to " give "attention" :t'o these  "things'and find a remedy, .which.will  "certainly- not    be' in ihe ridicule "of  principle or custom or law which' so  many sober-minded and worthy people approve as beneficial.  DUNCAN  CAMPBELL.  (Rev. Mr. Campbell says many worthy thingsan his communication, and  we appreciate    his    advice and criticism.   But he misses the mark in his  argument.     In our criticism referred  to by Mr.   Campbell,   ,we  did not say  anything about closing an ice cream  parlor on Sunday.   An  ice  cream parlor is not licensed to do business on  Sunday.   A restaurant is.   Mr. Campbell, to make his case, reads into our  editorial much it did not say or infer. We  ridiculed a law that pretends to dictate to a duly licensed restauranteur  what he shall provide for his patrons  as food and refreshment.   Mr. Campbell is the first person we^have heard  to put stimulants   and icecream on  the same footing.   We would not say  that Mr. Campbell is    wrong in this,  for we have' long had a feeling that  way     ourselves.       However,    as ice  cream has always been the pay chute  at all church socials and the like, we  have   thought    that    we   might   be  wrong in this.   We have even allowed  ourselves to   go   so "ar as to believe  that ice cream _ is   no more harmful  than a cup of tea or coffee or a glass  of water or   milk.      And we simply  pointed to the absurdity of enforcing  a law that made it a misdemeanor to  serve ice   cream   in   a restaurant on  Sunday   without 'first tilling the patron    up -on   something    else.      As  reasonably   pass   a law making it a  misdemeanor-to sell a glass of milk,  or a cup of tea or coffee without first  serving a full meal.  - Mr. Campbell's reference to the  sideshows is quite . foreign to the  ���������������������������question. His is the-first objection  we have heard to these amusements.  What particular show ro worked upon. Mr. Campbell's r feelings ? There  was the glass blowers', tent, the .wild  animals,-Mabel the-strange-girl, who  played with, live snakes - smilingly,and  a vaudeville-performance���������������������������as good as  the _ average vaudeville _ travelling. the  country. . Then there 7.vere' numerous  booths;' one ,selling balloons, for the  little children, .also 'ancy(.brass-jewel  ���������������������������badges, canes with a dinky rib&on at-.  tachment, prizes for hitting the coon  behind a canvass, a hitting test post,  throwing baseballs at baby dummies,  tossing rings, etc.   We have no way  of knowing what game Mr. Campbell  went   up   against,    but   they tell us  that a man finds   what he is looking  for.     He may have seen all of them,  but the probability is hc did not see  any of the shows he believes were so  bad.     Speaking for ourselves, we will  say that we did not pay to see Mabel  but we know many sooer-minded and  worthy people who 'lid-"���������������������������men, women  and children���������������������������and    rhey looked as if  they were enjoying it.   We might say  the same   of   those   who visited the  other shows and   booths.     Anyway,  there was a charge attached to everything and you.couldn't see it if you  didn't pay the price.     Icrhaps some  of them   didn't   give    much   for ten  cents, but all shows are alike in this  respect.    What   one    man    thinks is  good value - for   ten    cents,  another  will denounce.     Even ��������������������������� f a church fair  this is true.     But we would not denounce the church fair, because of the  fortune-telling  tent,   the  ball,, throwing at'Betty or the fish pond.  ' We do not   think" Mr. Campbell is  entirely fair in his remarks.   If there  was the open gambling he says there  was; would not Officer Bailey and the  special "police   have 'ooked after it ?  If there was the open dishonesty and  vulgarity he   claims there was, is it  reasonable .to    suppose   that   sober-  minded .and   worthy people quite as  law-abiding as   Mr.   jampbell or the  writer or reader of this, article would  enjoy paying, money to see' it, or to  participate in it ?  . Mr. Campbell . is not fair ��������������������������� in his  statement that these shows were allowed to remain in town several  days; They arrived en- Thursday.  They carry with . them_ two special  cars to accommodate their equipment.  There are forty, people in the. Chapman shows.* They winter. in New  Westminster,   and   in-'he, spring and  summer- attend ��������������������������� the    circuit of fairs  r o.   - -      - - . - ���������������������������-  given "in this province nnd the North-'  -west.,-They set their .teats, up"'Thursday .evening .in readiness' for Friday.  The .children "enjoyed , the merry-go-  round Thursday-evening. - Friday "evening the': booths-were closed before  ten o'clock. Not being able to locate  for a, Saturday date, the City gave  them permission to remain set up  for Saturday evening, an'd the merry-  go-round was operated from 8 till 10  that evening. They were packed up  and off the ground by midnight.  With due regard for Mr. Campbell's  object in writing as he has and condemning as he does a feature of the  24th that gave more, eujoyment than  anything the City has yet been able  to provide, we, nevertheless, believe  that the Mayor and members of the  City Council are quite as'anxious as  he to protect the city's interests, and  in providing the Chapman shows for  the-24th they acted wisely and with  an eye to the greatest enjoyment to  the greatest number.���������������������������Editor.)

That Reminds Me  LITTLE PROGRESS MADE ,,  1-Icrc is another deplorable confession  from no less an authority than the  IWcdical Record. In spite of the army  of physicians, their discoveries, and  their hecatombs of vivisected guinea  pigs, wc may doubt, says the Medical  Record, ''whether' the sum total of diseases is any -less than it was before  the medical profession reached its present.high standing. Preventive medicine has -made "little headway," and  "in Lhc-.opinion of medical men_diseases  are oil'. Lhe 'increase." " In" the - deeper  recesses of consciousness many had  ,suspected something of the kind, but  such heterodoxy on the part of a layman would have exposed -liim to excommunication -.with bell, book, and  candle, or at least with bacteria, serums, and' antitoxins.

Searchlight,    2.03.7     It   is   pleasant  when recounting the qualities of a stallion to point to his breeding, his racing  and  speed,   but when  all  is  said  and  done, the owners of mares of thc present day make one condition the foremost, and it may tie said often the only  factor, providing the horse has reached  the  age  when  "many  of  his  offspring  have reached maturity.

In thc lowlands of-  thc tropics there are scattered mahogany trees and a variety of other hard-*  wood timber.  Owing lo the inaccessibility of many  of the tracts of timber in the mountains, comparatively few railroads have  penetrated lhem. The chief means of  gelling out the roughly hewed timber  and bringing it down from the" higher  altitudes is by burros. These little  beasts of burden have powerful  strength and endurance. They follow  the narrowest and most dangerous  mountain trails even when their bodies  are loaded with the weight of enormous timbers. It is upon the backs of  these burros that thousands of railroad crossties wero brought down from  the mountains, thus enabling the construction of the more modern lines of  transportation.  Nearly everyone is looking for encouragement, but the most successful  men have found it necessary to encourage themselves.

It was his desire to  have the vast railway system which  he dominated remain intact and he  extended by his heirs, and he made his  will accordingly. Believing his eldest  son, George J., to be a young man of  unusual business ability, the great financier directed that he take the lead  In the management of the properties.  The will provided that George, Edwin,  Howard, and Helen Gould act as trustees of the estate, Frank and Anna, tho  other two children, being at that time  too young for business responsibilities.  Later, Frank Gould succeeded his sister  Helen in an advisory capacity.  The four sons elected themselves presidents of thc railroads under, their  control, and for many years they maintained unquestioned supremacy over, a  vast and fruitful territory. Their railway "empire" in the early nineties, dur-  u ing the first few years after Jay Gould  died, extended from Detroit in the east  to Ogden (Utah) in the west, and from  Chicago, Omaha, St. Louis, and Kansas  City to New Orleans.and El Paso.  Their Missouri Pacific lines extended  from St. Louis out across Missouri and  into Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado,  bringing up at Pueblo at the foot of  the Rockies; and the Denver and Rio  Grande was their line reaching on as  far as Salt Lake City. Later they  built the Western Pacific, a long line  from the Utah capital to San Francisco. The Iron Mountain, the- Texas Pacific, and the Southwestern  cob-webbed the cotton-growing southwest, with St. Louis as an objective  terminal. The Goulds controlled not  only this great railway system, but  also the New York elevated lines and  the Western Union Telegraph .Company.  While - the three younger brothers  participated in the management of the  railroads, George J. had the last word  ln all disagreements, and the responsibility of directing the business fell  upon him.  In 1892, when Jay Gould died, the  opinion of Wall Street hardly endorsed  -the judgment of this remarkable will.  George Gould was young,���������������������������only twenty-  eight,���������������������������retiring in disposition, soft-  voiced, unaggressive, and consequently  not widely known.      It was generally  , believed,-*: however, that he" was no idler,  that  he -aspired  to  earn' a reputation  - for-himself "and. that, in particular, he  was ambitious "of removing the stigma  from the-Gould name.- The .outside  public probably knew, him best for his  romantic marriage to Miss Edith King-  don, a' charming New York actress of  high personal character.-- There was  a general disposition to "give the young  chap a chance," a-feeling'" heightened  by the serious interest which he soon  - manifested in his railroad-properties.,  ������������������   In these early days George Gould re-  . gularly made trips over his roads; he  formed'important and useful banking  alliances in Wall Street; he took a prominent part in the reorganization of  other-lines, and even made large plans  for the extension of his own interests,  in 1899 or 1900 the financial district had  - revised its early'estimate and had begun'to look upon George Gould as the  future dictator of the railroad situation. About this time, however, he  began to manifest less'promising traits.  "Society," with all its distractions, now  laid heavy claims upon his attention.  The portals of New York's exclusive  society circle, which had been closed to  his' father, were opened to George  Gould and his family; and then came  the  expenditure    of  millions _for__fine  'houses, hunting-preserves, and lavish  entertainments which were the talk of  two continents. Mr. Gould gave much  of his time to yachting trips, polo-playing, and other sports and recreations.  He* managed his business much of the  time by long-distance communication.  Undoubtedly, George Gould's inattention to business in recent years  has beon, in no small part, due to' the  fact that he is a good father; that he  - wished-to - exercise- and as'socialc with"  his growing sons, and, being a rich  man, he has beon able to choose between home life and office work. Unfortunately, he has always been extremely jealous of delegating his official power. He developed the habit of  suddenly going to Europe and leaving  nobody behind with authority to make  a business move. Jf his subordinates  assumed such authority during his absence, they frequently suffered thc humiliation of having their ideas overruled. Gould, from the first, manifested the family characteristic of looking upon tho Gould railroads as family  perquisites. "Ramsay, can't I own my  own property as I want to?" he once  testily remarked to the president of the  Wabash, who had entered a protest  against certain of his acts.  As a rule the subordinates of the  Goulds have not been the country's  ablest railroad men, and the reason for  this is that George Gould's official  headquarters were supposed to be at  St. Louis, Chicago, and Salt Lake City,  but the actual offices were in whatever city he happened to be. It was  inevitable that the personnel of his department chiefs should be more or less  demoralized a great deal of the time.  Had George Gould been an aggressive, masterful person, he might, in  spite of these somewhat demoralizing  surroundings have made his mark. On  the contrary, his pre-eminent characteristic is indecision of character. He  by no means lacks ability; he is capable of forming great,'even grandiose  plans; he is a good deal of a dreamer,  bu- he lacks the physical force, the  "nerve," to see his operations through.  According to the Wall Street estimate,  he is always saying one thing and doing another; tho last persuasive talker  who gets his ear is generally regarded  as the one who carries the day. Naturally suspicious and never sure ot himself, he labors under the, impression  that some one is trying to overreach  him, that certain Wall Street interests  are "out to get" him, and in every business deal he feels himself perpetually  ambushed. In his early days Gould  had excellent banking connections; in  the last few years he has been unable  to establish any permanent associations. He does business with one  house today, with another . tomorrow,  and consequently he .is on bad terms  with practically all. In the last few  years George Gould has been a solitary  figure���������������������������the Hamlet of the railroad  world; a man of paralyzed action, making no progress toward his goal, distrusted by all his associates, and even  more distrustful of himself,  Edwin Gould is said to be a man of  steady purpose, but he has never participated conspicuously in the management of the Gould roads. Frank and  Howard Gould have been known principally for their inattention to business  and their domestic troubles. Their  sister Anna's marriage to Count Boni  de Castellane, his wasting of millions  of Gould money,, and the divorce decree that freed her from him formed  another unfortunate chapter in the history of the family.. Helen Gould has  been the /bright particular star of the  family, and her influence as a philanthropist has been widely felt; but'she  has- never had much to do -with the  management of the family's railroad  properties. '  The personal expenses of the family  necessitated the extraction of regular  dividends.from their railway and telegraph companies, and while taking out  the dividends, the Goulds failed to keep  up .a"high;standard of public service.  The management of the New York elevated lines was scandalous "and the  service of the Western "Union grew to  be so poor and the company sd .impoverished that the Goulds.had'to surrender-control to"the American .Telephone*--Company. And the "railroads  were neglected in the same way; the  tracks were, allowed to, lapse into a  state of disrepair'and competing lines  got most of the traffic.  And while the Goulds were "starving", their roads, one of the greatest  ailroad powers the world ever saw was  rising up to harass them at every, turn'.-  In 1897, the Harriman-Kuhn-Loeb-  Rockefeller combination reorganized  and rehabilitated the Union Pacific  Railroad, a road which depended upon  the" same traffic-territory as the Missouri Pacific. The late E. H. Harri-  man devoted his time and $250,000,000  to the upbuilding of the "Union Pacific,  which parallels the Missouri Pacific,  while George Gould spent little time and  money to improve Iiis lines. Harriman  was looked down upon at the beginning; Gould was at that time by far  the more important railroad man.. The  then president of the Pennsylvania,  had the Western Union telegraph poles  on his right-of-way chopped down, and  the final result was the sale of the  Western Union. And after Gould had  spent $45,000,000 for control of crippled  old lines and for the construction of  new ones, he found himself hampered  on all sides and unable to hold his own  in the fight against Harriman and the  Pennsylvania. The costly Wabash-  Pittsburg line got little traffic, and the  Western Maryland became bankrupt.  One by one, the railroads controlled  by Gould were given up until it came  to the Missouri Pacific. James Speycr  came to Gould's rescue and helped  him save this road from his old enemies, but he exacted the stipulation  that a new president, under the supervision of Speyer and Company, should  control.  And so George Gould, at the eleventh  hour, apparently turned the tables upon the enemy. He elected a new Gould  board of directors, James,Speyer taking the place occupied by a representative of Kuhn, Loeb and Company. This  coup, however, hardly represented a  triumph in which a really ambitious,  energetic man would take much satisfaction. Technically, perhaps, Gould  still controls the Missouri Pacific; in  reality he does not. B. F. Bush, the  new president, manages the road in  absolute independence of the Gould  family. The slightest attempt to" restore the old Gould despotism would  be disastrous to even the nominal power it still retains. Exceedingly rich  the Goulds may be; but, unless some  genius should arise in the third generation, their influence as a railroad  power will grow slighter and slighter.  It is perhaps not strange that certain  observers should see in their humiliation the workings of the "money trust."  The real explanation, however, is more  simple. It is found in the character  of the Goulds themselves. The complex  forces controling modern American industrialism have proved too much for  them.  The Terror of Asthma comes like a  thief in the night with its dreadful  throttling, robbing its victim of breath.  It seems beyond tho power of human  aid to relieve until one trial is made of  that remarkable preparation, Dr. J. D.  Kellog's Asthma Remedy. Then relief comes with a rush. Life becomes  worth living, and, if the remedy be  used persistently, the disease is put  permanently to rout. Take no substitute.  two^becariKrinfeT-t5sted_in_the same cor  porations,  but it was not long before  they disagreed and began to wage war  against   each   other.    The   late  C.   P.  Huntington, who controlled the Southern   Pacific   lines,   divided   the   traffic  equally between the Gould and Harriman  roads,   and   so  long as  hc  lived  George Gould was able to make money  with tho Missouri Pacific;  but shortly  after Huntington's death, in 1900, Har-  riman-got-control-of the-SouthernPa--  cific and^ refused  to  divide the traffic  from Ogden eastward.   Gould had refused to make concessions to Harriman  in  connection  with  the transportation  of   traffic   over   thc   Denver  and   Rio  Grande, and now it was time for Plar-  riman   to  strike  back.   All  exchanges  of  business  were  cut  off  by  Gould's  competitor,  and   then  Gould began  to  build new lines ancl purchase old ones.  Gould   decided   to   extend   his   lines  from coast to coast, and tho first important step  was  thc construction  of  the  Western  Pacific  from  Salt Lake  City   to  San  Francisco.   In   the   East  lie was to extend the system from Toledo  to Baltimore,  and  to attack  the  Pennsylvania's Gibraltar ��������������������������� Pittsburg.  He  resolved   to  carry  out  a  plan  of  which other railroad men had dreamed  for   years.    The   first   train   over   the  Western Pacific ran into San Francisco in 1910, after long delays in the construction of the road.    Gould got control   of  tho   Erie  for   a  while,   spent  many   millions   building  an   extension  into  Pittsburg without  really  hurting  competing   lines,   and   took   over   the  Western Maryland in an effort to reach  Baltimore.    Gould's former 'backers in  New  York  were  estranged  and  went  over to Harriman,  and  Gould  had  to  borrow $20,000,000 from the Equitable  Life,   which   was  soon   spent  on   the  Pittsburg enterprise.  In attempting to push his way into  the traffic stronghold' of the Pennsylvania Railroad, Gould found all. the  allied forces of that great system turned against him.   The late A. J. Cassatt,  ,,   THE SUFFRAGIST  PLAGUES  The Aberdeen Free Press asks:  "Have the suffragists been reading up  about the .plagues'of Egyp.t? It took  ten plagues to soften Pharoah's heart  and secure the deliverance bf'.the children of Israel, Do the suffragists calculate that when they have inflicted  the same number, of miseries on -a  long-suffering, public they will achieve  emancipation for the voteless woman?  They must be pretty near the number  by this time. We have had the inter-  ruption-of-public-meetings' plague, the  deputation plague/ the" throwing-of-  missles, the bell-ringing, "and the dog-  whip plagues, -and no rdoubt others  whiclrwe do-not atthe moment recall.  Now- . comes the__ window-smashing  plague.'" There was a~ violent, outbreak  of this malady in the west.end.of^Lon'-.  don . last- week. - The . enterprise,-. had  evidently been very carefully-planned,  though the W.S.P.U. do not admit'that  they, "as an organization,"-made, the  arrangements for the operations."'Who-,  ever was' responsible, the raid was  carried out with great success, if that  is "to" be . measured by the. amount of  damage done to plateglass. The"~lo"ss  is estimated at thousands of pounds,  and it.is little wonder that the shopkeepers in' the district concerned are  infuriated. They may well ask why  they should have been-selected for the  dubious honor of being' the objects of  suffragist'wrath. The feminine argument appears to be that because'the  miners have made themselves'a "nuisance,"-and have, therefore, been promised legislation, the "women ought to  adopt similar tactics to bring about a  similar result. The analogy isdanger-  ous. The cause of -women's suffrage  has been making great progress, .but  such demonstrations a"s this window-  smashing campaign dishearten its real  friends, and but harden the hearts of  its opponents. We doubt whether ten  such  nlaguos_will-prodnce^the=resulk  promoter of affinity stock companies.  We cannot tolerate his presence in  China, as China is not a land of lovers.  Consequently the cool, quiet hours of  our midsummer nights are not disturbed or spoiled by hot air from the wooing and cooing of sentimental creatures.  We do not believe in love, for love  is not the greatest thing in the world.  It is not even a thing nor substance.  It is simply the product of an idle  brain, the outgrowth of a drowsy  mind. It is inconstant and unsubstantial, for its fluantitative and qualitative character changes with the  changes of scenery and environment,  and its drawing and binding power  increases or decreases as the square  of the distance between subject and  object increases or decreases, as the  case may be.  Love is the antithesis of reason, for  man sees with reason and only feels  with love, and it is the most violent  form of brainstorm. Love is a symptom of a disordered brain, as a nightmare is a symptom of a disordered  stomach. It is a deadly contagious  disease, for it turns the strongest head  and makes the wisest man a fool. Indeed, there is no fool like an old fool  who is affected with amoritis. When  a* man has contracted this love disease and is under its influence, he acts  in the most idiotic manner and performs all sorts of antics, all of which  he 'entirely renounces and repudiates  when he is free from its hypnotic spell.  Now, are we peculiar because we do  not agree with you- in regard to the  idea of love? But, alas! the world is  changing, and China is changing with  it;' the old time proven ideas are fast  giving way to the new, and our young  people are being converted to the worship- of- the blind god, and from now  on, there will likely be more love in  our courtships and divorces in our  matrimony.  that was produced in Egypt long ago.  The country will not be bullied into  granting the vote to women. The justice of the cause is beyond dispute, and  those who are fighting in its favor are  only handicapped when the more reckless spirits among the women break  out as they have just been doing. The  promised Reform Bill will1 be the real  opportunity for the suffragists. ]f a  suffragist amendment be carried, the  Government have promised to adopt it.  As the question cuts across the line of  ordinary party divisions, it is difficult  to see what other course could be  adopted. .The suffragists should wait  and see. If their amendment is defeated, then will be the time to consider what further action ought to bc  taken.

One would -think from its bad  luck that the baby owned the Hope  diamond.  pears to be beyond reproach in a  domestic sense, except in one particular," the departure from the ideal existence being on the part of the male.  He seems to be unable to enjoy life  in the bosom of his family as long as  his neighbor is happy with cygnets,  spouse, and surroundings. The result  is that he is continually making diabolical attempts to destroy the progeny of the swans whose nests adjoin  his, and the latter retaliate in kind.  The fights that ensue between the husbands are terrible, beaks and wings  being used with sanguinary results.  As a consequence, the keepers have to  be constantly on the watch in order to  stop these frays. When they attempt  to do so, however, .it is by no means  unusual for the swans to forget their  private feud and join cause against  the would-be peacemakers.  The female is free from this miserable   dislike n to   the  offspring  of  her  sister, lacking as she does the vindictive combativeness  of thc  male.   Yet  after an attempt at infanticide or cyg-  neticide on the part of her male neighbor, her nestlings being the proposed  victims���������������������������there being no keeper in the ���������������������������  neighborhood at the time���������������������������it is by no -  means uncommon to find both the assailant and  defender  of the  nest  ly-'5  ing   dead 'or  dying   on   the   ground,  while the widow, with torn and soiled'  plumage and the light of battle in her-"  eye, is doing her best to comfort her  affrighted   little "ones.   For   according  to  swanish  ethics,  she may not'seek  to  save  her children   until  their  na-"  tural- protector-is   hors ' de   combat..  Then,   however,   she  is  at"  liberty ,.to  sally   forth   and   tackle   her   spouse's  conqueror and he, being more or less -  exhausted   by- the   preceding ,combat, -  not. infrequently receives his coup de  grace   from   the   fresh   and   powerful  wings and beak of the enraged mother.  The   maternal   instinct   thus - opposed "  to the murderous instinct usually wins  out. ;-        . ,     ,  - ,  ANNIVERSARY OF THE HAND- 7  KERCHIEF  A curious anniversary "which fell, on/:/  the second of last month has "passed "'"���������������������������",  unobserved.

DO  NOT  BELIEVE  IN   LOVE  Ng Poon Chew, in tho Chinese Annual, says that perhaps there is no  greater difference existing between the  Chinese and the American people than  that between their ideas of love. In  fact, we Chinese do not believe in love,  for we are not sickly, sentimental creatures, but cold, philosophical, fatalistic  beings. We arrange our matrimonial  affairs through hard reasoning and not  through the tender passion.  To us, marriage is a serious business  of the head, and not a light affair of  the heart. In these matrimonial transactions we apply the most rigid, keen,  calculating business principles, and  that is why wo are so successful in the  marriage enterprise, as we have never  been bunkoed by Cupid at the game  of love.  ' We never pay homage at the altar  of this stupid, brainless, yellow kid, the  disturber of peace, the breaker of  hearts, the destroyer of homes and the  Mothers can easily know when their  children are troubled with worms, and  they lose no time in applying the best  ���������������������������f remedies���������������������������Mother Graves' Worm  Exterminator.  HOW SWANS  LIVE  rpHE matrimonial habits "of swans  _|_ are of a- unique nature." When  March arrives the females proceed  to build their nests along the margin of  the Fleet and the little runlets that lace  the land adjoining. The males collect  the materials���������������������������rushes, dried grass, and  twigs���������������������������but the ladies are' the architects   and   builders _._L'he_,nes.ts^are.  about a yard in diameter, somewhat  conical, and usually raised from the  ground. When their construction is  finished, the iemales on a given day  betake them to the nests and await  the coming of their future lords and  masters. The latter, having gathered  apart in the meainwhile, next take to  the water and proceed to swim  in a long and critical line past their  spouses, commenting on them in swan  language-as thcy-do so. """  Occasionally, one of the males forgets, hi.s fealty to his awaiting wife,  halts at tho nest that belongs to another, and proceeds to make love to  the long-necked beauty'* sitting therein. At once, the outraged hus*band  flies at the would-be Lothario and a  battle begins that only, ends when one  of the combatants is dead or disabled.  For the birds aro fierce v fighters and  the blows that they can deal with their  beaks and wings are of extraordinary  power. There are authentic instances  of men who have had their legs or  arms broken by a single blow of thc  .wing of an angry swan. It isn't safe  for a stranger to venture in the Swannery during nesting time unless hc is  accompanied by one of tho keepers.  Otherwise, he is pretty sure to be attacked by those birds near whose nests  he walks.  After the inspection by the males is  over, each of thom goes ashore to his  consort and the home life is on in  earnest. The curious display of the  ladies as just toid is much after the  fashion of the wife-bazaars of Rou-  mania.  The eggs .are of a creamy hue and  there are from four to twelve in a  sitting. The male asists in tlie hatching process, sitting on the eggs alternately with the "female. From the  time that the nest is built until the  fall when the cygnets are about able  to take care of themselves, the husband remains strictly faithful to his  one wife���������������������������polygamy or even bigamy  being unknown in Swandom. Indeed,  the  behaviour of the  birds ap-  ���������������������������   .: ;. MAN;  MODEST  MAN!".    V  ., ..  " 'It is time that/we*revised.our ideas/'-/  of; feminine modesty.'1- -What "a* lot we7������������������"  have written about it and how 'much , f.  we-"have  enthused" over it:    Some" of   '-:  us have even tried to find in it an in- ,./  spiration, and women have listened to*' >  our praises and' our-ecstasies for-all."  these years and never once-have, they -'T.  divulged" the secret "that tiiey had riot ,7.'  the slightest idea what we were talking- 7  about. .They have.'known .that we were 7/  crediting them with some virtue that-   -  they did not possess,'but the "only "way - -  in which'they could learrifof that virtue'7 :  was  by" an  observation   of  ourselves." ,j.

He would be quite shy about  it if only men were present, but women  will  do  this  in  the  presence  of> both  sexes, and many of them would go lower still but for the conventions.

In short a woman's sense of modesty is one-half a  protective pose and one-half a sense of  the appropriate.
