the landing at New York of the rescue ship Carpathia, with her 705 survivors. While no two stories are

T  CHAPTER.X. (Continued)  The Emigrant Spirit  I-\HE fact that tlu- buy's fellows  were all of a Kind was whal had  disturbed me oven in tlie little  suburban .grammar school. For that  matter J can see now that even for  Ruth and mo tins .sameness was a  handicap for both us and our neighbors. There was no flash. Thore was  a dead level. 1 dun'I believe that's  good for either boys or men or for  women,  Supposing this open door policy did  admit a few worthless youngsters inlo  lhe school and supposing again that  Lhe private school didn't admit sueh  of ii different order (which 1 very mueh  doubt.���������������������������along with these Dick was going to Had hore the men���������������������������the past had  proved this and the present was proving it--who eventually would become  our statesmen, our progressive busi-  ��������������������������� ness men, our lawyers and doctors���������������������������if  not our conservative bankers. For one  graduate of such a school as my former surroundings had made me think  essential for the boy. I could count now  a   dozen   graduates  of   this   very   high  | Coal had  been n big item in the sub-  | urbs,. but   the  way., people, around   me  made il a still bigger  school who were distinguishing themselves in  the oily.      The boy was going to meet here the same spirit I  getting* in touch with among my  grant   friends���������������������������a   zeal   for   life,  lief in  the possibilities of  timislie   determination  was  emi-  i be-  life, an op-  to use these  possibilities, which somehow the blue-  blooded Americans were losing. It  seemed to me that life was getting  stale for the fourth and fifth genera-  lion. 1 tried to make the boy see this  point of viow. I went back again  with him to the pioneer idea.  "Dick." I said in substance, "your  exeat-great-grandfather pulled up  'stakes and came over lo this country  when there was nothing here but trees,  rocks and Indians, lt was a hard fight  but n good fight and be left a son co  carry on the fight. So generation after generation they fought, but somehow they grew a bit weaker as they  fought., Now," I said, "you and 1 are  going to try to recover that lost  Ground. J .el's think ourselves as like  our great-great-grandfathers. We've  just come over here. So have about a  'million others. The light is a different  fiirht today, but it's no less a light and  'we're going to win. We have a good  many advantages that these newcomers haven't. i'ou see them making  good on every side of you, but I'll- bet  they can't lick-a good American���������������������������when  he isn't asleep. You-and I are going  to make good too."  -You bet we are, Dad." he said, with  his oyes grown bright.  "Then'" 1 said, "you must work the  way the newcomers work. 1'don't  want vou to think you're any better  than they are. You aren't. But  vou're just as good nnd these two  hundred years we've lived here ought  to count for something."  *    The bov lifted his head at this.  "You make me feel as though we'd  just landed with the Pilgrims," he said.  -So we have," 1 said. "June seventh  of this very year we landed on Fly-  mouth Kock just as our ancestors did  two centuries ago. They've been all  this lime paving the way for you and  me They've built roads and schools  and factories and it's up to us now to  use them. You and 1 have just landed from England. Let's sec what  we can do as pioneers."  I wanted to get at the young Ameri  can  in  him.      1 wanted  him  to  that he was something more  . i were buying it,  | one. Xo cellar accommodations came  | with the tenement and so each one  I-was 'forced to buy his coal by the  ! basket or bag. A basket of anthracite was costing them at this time  about forty cents. This was I'or about  eighty pounds of coal, which made lhe  total cost per ton eleven dollars���������������������������al  least three dollars and a half over  lhe regular price. Even wilh economy a person would uso at least a  hag a week. This, to leave a liberal  margin, would amount fo about a ton  and a half of coal during the winter  months. I didn't like the idea of absorbing the half dollar or so a week  that Ruth was squeezing out towards  what few clothes we had to buy, in  this way���������������������������ai least thc over-charge  part of it. With the- first basket I  brought home, J said, "I see where  you'll havo to' dig down into the ginger jar  this winter,  little woman."  She  looked  as  startled  as  though   I  had   told  hei* someone  had  stolen   the  savings.  "What do you mean?" she asked.  1   pointed  to  the  basket.  "Coal- cosls  about  eleven  dollars   a  ton, down here."  ".Vhen sho found out that this was  all that caused my remark, she didn't  seem   lo  be disturbed.  "Billy," she said, "before we touch  lhe ginger jar it will have to cost  twenty dollars a ton. We'll live on  pea soup and rice three times a day  before  1   touch  that."  "All right," I said, "but it does seem  a pity that the burden of such prices  as these should  fall on the poor."  "Why do they?" she asked.  ���������������������������/'Because in  this case,"   [ said,  "the  dealers   seem   lo   have   us'where   the  wool  is short."  "How have ihey?" she insisted.  "Wo can't buy coal by tbe ton, because we haven't any place to put it.'  She thought a moment and  then  she  said:  "We could take care of a fifth of a  ton,   Billy.    That's  only  five  baskets."  "They   won't   sell   five   any   cheaper  than one."  "And every family in this house  could take care of five," she went on.  "That would make a ton."  T began to sec what she meant and  ns I thought of it 1 didn't see why it  wasn't a practical scheme.  "I believe thats a good idea.'-' 1 said.  ''Arid if. there were-more-women like  you in the world I don't believe tbere'd  be any  trusts at all."  "Nonsense," she said. "You leave it  lo me now and J' 11 sec the other women in the house.

Right here is where her superior intelligence came in, of course. The  foreign-born women do not so quickly  adapt themselves to the standards of  this cuiintry as lhe men do. Most of  them, as I learned, come from the  country districts of Italy where they  live very rudely. Once here they  make their new quarters lillie better  ihuh thoir old. Tho younger ones,  however, who are going to school arc  doing better. But taken by and large  it was difficult to persuade them that  cleanliness offered any especial advantages. It wasn't as though they  minded the dirt ami were chained to it  by circumstances from which they  couldn't escape���������������������������as 1 used to think.  They simply didn't object to it. So  long as they were warm and bad foo.l  enough they were content. They didn't suffer in any way-that they themselves  could  see.  But when Ruth first went into their  quarters she was horrified. She  thought that at length she'was face  to face with all the misery and squalor  of the slums of which she had read. I  remember ber chalk-white face as she  mot me at the door upon my return  home one night. -She nearly drove the  color out of my own cheeks for I  thought surely that something had  happened to ihe boy. "But if wasn't  that; she had heard lhat the baby on  the first floor was ill and had gone  down there to see if there was anything sho might do for it. Until then  she had seen nothing but the outside  of tlie other doors from the hall and  they looked no different from our own.

"Why the poor* little thing���������������������������"  "What   poor   little  thing?"   I   interrupted.  "Micbele's   baby.       It   lay   there   in  dirty rags with its pinched white face  staring up at me as though just begging for a clean bed."  ���������������������������   "What's the matter with it?"  "Matter with it?

" ��������������������������� ' '  (To be continued)  FOX TERRIERS VERY MUCH  ALIVE  Tho fox terrier is a small black,and  white disturbance which afflicts and  delights many families. He is active  and beautiful, like a college sophomore,  and has the sophomore's habit of starting a new variety of trouble at any  timo on a second's notice.  The fox terrier has thin logs, an active, expressive mouth, a lean, well-  shaped head, talkative eyos and a nose  which leads him swiftly from one misdemeanor to another. Originally hc  had a, liberal tail, but it has been  edited and revised by man into a mere  slump. This was dono because of the  fact that when the fox terrier's tail  was ns active as his head it took two  people to watch him with even partial  success.  Thc fox terrier is a house pet and is  clean ancl dainty in his habits. He  lives on meat, milk, potatoes, mice,  old shoes, curtains, books, mahogany  table legs, opera hats, and tablecloths.  In return for this diet ho guards the  houso with unremitting, ferocity. No  burglar can como within a block of  a fox terrier's1, family without dislodging an eruption from the faithful brute  Hc also guards the houso against all  cats, dogs, st root-cars, late pedestrians,  bats, owls, dead loaves, and moonbeams which may chance to pass/the  place at night.- After a. family has got  used to a fox terrier and has lost him  temporarily"it can sloop right through  a. boiler explosion and a fire next door  without so much as stirring.  Losing the fox terrier is tho favorite  diversion of thc family which owns  him���������������������������or at least pays the taxes on him.  He is as difficult to keep around thc  house as a husband. Tho ordinary fox  terrier has a larger acquaintance  around iho town than the postmaster  and dines in a new place every day.  Some terriers board around like school  teachers, and only come home once a  yoar to be tagged. Owing to his wandering disposition tbo terrier is loved  twice as much as ordinary dogs'. He  is frantically welcomed when hc returns home and tho family is grateful when he goes away again and gives  it a rest. Very few people have seen  a fox terrier die, because ho almost  ahvays loses himsolf for keeps first.  The fox terrier is vivacious,, audacious, ingenious, mercurial, hysterical,  wheedlcsomc, companionable, affectionate, optimistic, fickle, restless, and  irrepressible. He is, in fact, the chor.us  girl"-of the dog family.  earning ?1,200 a year, from his werk,  and now at the ago of thirty-four he is  wealthy. His great gift is humor. H������������������  is equally at homo in oils, and bis portrait of Mark Twain, hanging in th������������������  Lotos Club, is one of his best-known  efforts.  Hennicker Heaton, "apostle of imperial penny postage," who has lived  to see his postage reform adopted by  England and her over-seas colonies,  recently sailed for Australia, hoping to  regain his. health. Ho first went to  Australia at the age of sixteen, remaining twenty years. He returned to England twenty-eight years ago, and for  over a quarter of a century held a seat  in the Houso of Commons, ropresentiiij?  Canterbury.

For niany years be  has been a student ."of the art and of  the act of dying," and so for tho first  time we have death elevated lo the  region of art. The idea is -worthy of  consideration, for to die with dignity  and grace is not given to evory man,  but it might bo cultivated. Dr. Osier  does not- like Maeterlinck's essay on  death because there is a "cadaverous  mustiness" about .it that can not be  hidden   even   by   the   beauty    of    it's  STRENGTH   OF   SUPERSTITION  It is curious bow superstitions linger  and refuse to be abolished. Tho. English censor of plays has just resigned,  and of course thero is a clamor for  the appointment of a woman in his  place. A woman, wo arc told, Is a  much bettor judge of stage improprieties than a man, and with a woman in  tbe seat of thc mighty there would be  no fear of tbe presentation of any plaj  to which women would object.,.  Probably not. That is just whero  the trouble comes in. Thai is why a  woman should not bo dramatic censor.  Tho object of a dramatic censor" is,  presumably, to keep fhe stage pure and  not to fill it with plays acceptable to  women. ..That is just thc kind of play  that we do not want.' When the English censor' .bans a" play '��������������������������� upon tho  ground of indecency bo is consulting  the preferences of men, not of women.-  It is the man who objects to pruriency,  not his maiden aunt. She never gel3  enough of it. The problem 'play that  pretends to. map and chart the, vice of  a big city is sustained by women, not  by men." "The English-speaking ..stage"  is low enough in all conscience "and it*  can never be redeemed by a censorship of any kind. But if we want to  see it imitate the-Gadareno swine and  run down a steep place into the sea,  by all means appoint a-woman "censor.  But it will not bo dono in England.  They will draw the lino somewhere.

Then,  too,  while  those  tho Last Illness," "Tho Pangs of  Death," and "Horror," with which his  pages are sprinkled. They are unjustified, says Dr. Osier. Very few suffer  severely in the body, fewer still in tbe  mind.- Liko Socrates, nearly all men  owe a cock to Asclepius for an easy  passage. Without Dr. Osier's professional knowledge of death wc may believe heartily that he is right. Death  is as natural as birth and, as a famous  physician once said, not half so painful. Its correspondence with sleep  must bo a close one, and jus't as we do  not sleep except to relievo thc pain of  'srw*?i*fr'iTfos.---'" so we dir~not"die=='cxl:"e'ptfit-o=  relieve tho pain of living. It is the  alternative, gratefully accepted. The  dread of death is the invention of religion, and it is strange that the vision  tious it developed into the historical  duel "over'nullification, secession, slavery, and all those other topics which  were to inflame the minds of men for  two- generations.

She had found time to moot the other  families in tho house and through them  had met a dozen more.

Dangers of the Desert  (Ey Alan  Ostler)  THE  ECCENTRIC  DUCK-BILL  One of .the most peculiar of animals  is thc duck-bill of Australia.

There lies on either side of the frontier lino that divides' Tripoli, from  Tunis, an arid belt of desert land! a  dreary, windy waste of sand and  camel-thorn scrub, wherein houses are  as rare as lightships in ' mid-ocean.  Here and there thc long, low booths of  nomad Arabs may be seen; but these  houses of hair-cloth aro set down at  dusk and taken up at dawn. There is  no place where you may count on finding them. Therefore, the traveler  bent on entering Tripoli from the  western side, unless he carries a tent  with him, will sleep unsheltered be-  neath thc stars or the falling rain,  as the seasons shall decree.  For me, tho season decreed rain���������������������������of  the African variety. Stand fn such  rain for sixty seconds, and you will be  as wet as though you had lain in the  bed of a river. For two nights I slept  in il, huddled with shivering, cursing  camel-drivers tinder the useless lee  of a rampart built of barley-sacks. For  three days, on the back of a dripping  camel, I progressed towards gray horizons lhat came no .hearer; and almost  without intermission, the" rain fell  heavily and chill,' stinging the face  from time to time with icy gusts.  The desert is cold now. The desert,  indeed, like the littlo girl with a curl  down the middle of her forehead,  knows only extremes. When it is hot  it is very, very hot; and when it is  cold, it is horrid. The wind moans  over the sand dunes, whistles through  the stiff, unyielding branches of the  camel-thorn, and searches you to the  very bone. Never have I known such  bitter, biting cold as I have .known  here, in the African desert.  When the French officials politely  but firmly deprived me of tbe servants and baggage animals with which  1 bad meant to cross tho desert, I riian-  aged to hire camels'from the leaders of  a caravan carrying barley into Tripoli  to sell to thc Turkish army. .  Not even an American lady tourist  could have said of these men that they  had nice faces. Their general appearance, since they were armed to .the  teeth, was picturesque, but I think I  never saw more villainous .countenances'nor heard voices more expressive of violent greed. -Yet, as they  came in sight, the camels reeling  stately across the desert, like ships-in  a-gentle swell, the.men, draped and  hooded,' perched aloft "or pacing,-, with  harsh'cries, alongside,.! saw in them  a vision of deliverance.' - ." _, - -'  The striking of'our bargain was, difficult. Arab-like,--.all -jspoke at. once,  extending rapacious, hands to receive  the "flops" before; starting; crying in  savage, high-pitched tones' that, 'if  seen with a."Nasrany," they would be  set upon and killed, and each protesting that ho alone, of all .the band,-.was  to .be trusted. What little. 'Arabic I  speak is of Morocco,' an'd Morocco is  as distant from this. country as-is  Spain from Italy.' Therefore, though  the main- structure of the Arabic  tongue, held together by the Koran, is  tho same throughout the-north of  Africa, idioms' and pronunciations dif-"  i'er, and I founcl it hard to make myself  understood; and harder still to understand.* But in the end the shouting,  shivering conclave broke up; it was  agreed that I should accompany the  caravan for thirty francs, and I was  presently seated- upon one camel, with  my baggage disposed upon divers others, s '  Thc train of camels moved along,  each beast choosing its own road and  browsing at will upon the stick-like,  withered scrub. The drivers are slow  to beat their beasts off from this intermittent grazing, for they do not give  .them any other fodder than that which  ..hoy��������������������������� ttine -find-for��������������������������� thcmsplvps���������������������������Onlv.  when some linger far behind the rest,  tearing 'at some peculiarly dainty  growth, do tho mon, hurrying back, fall  on them with blows and curses and  drive them on their unhurried way.  It had been cold all tho morning. The  rain began to fall at noon. Toward  dusk wo halted in the shelterless waste,  and the camels knelt, groaning bitterly, lo bo relieved of thc sodden barley-  sacks. With those a crescent-shaped  -wall-was ralscd.-and in-the-lee of-this-'  the mon crouched upon tho soggy  sand, in which pools formed and slowly  widened. I declined this shelter, which  was no sholter, and set up my camp-  bed, on which, wrapping myself ln  overcoat, mackintosh and blankets, [  tried lo sloop. Bul tho incessant rain  came through all and made a shallow  canvas bath of tbe bed, so that I presently turned out and crept in among  tho Arabs for warmth.  I gave out cigarettes (each one was  sodden before it reached tho hand ic-  tended for it), and, smoking these,  coughing and shivering, wo talked of  the war in Morocco against the French,  and of tbo evil deeds of the Italian  troops in Tripoli. Tho place in which  we camped is haunted by devils; but  African devils do not like rain, and  so we woro unmolested.  AL dawn there camo a chilly lull in  the downpour. Wo made a fire of aromatic shrub-twigs, and, standing over  it, tried to dry our sopping garments.  Thon Scyyid Khalil put flour and water  into fi leathern bag, and, rolling this  to and fro, mado dough, which we  buried awhile in the embers. Then,  scraping off the wood-ashes (or some  part of them) we devoured it, all soft  add warm and highly indigestible. It  tasted like a linseed p'oultice that I  once ate when I was a little boy���������������������������a linseed poultice delicately redolent of  goat-skin and charcoal.  That day a wandering band of marauders questioned us; but we were  more numerous than they, and all  armed, so that they made no attack.  Yet for a time we wero afraid that  they might get help and pursue us. Our  drivers hurried their beasts along, and  openly regretted their folly in traveling with a Christian.  "For this," said Seyyid Khalil,  "thou'll pay more than thirty francs,  Inglesi. Think what danger we run,  all because wc are friends of^thine.  Say, now, how much more?"  We quarrelled ' violently on this  point. We woke up at intervals during the wet night that-followed, to discuss the point.  "If we kill thee and say the robbers  did it, who would know?" said Seyyid  Khalil. . ' .  On the third day, arriving in sight  of the palm-oasis wherein the refugees  from Zouara lie safe from the Italians,  he came to the side~"of my camel, leading his little son, to whom I had shown  some kindness in the matter of biscuits and chocolate.  "You will speak well of us, Inglesi,  to the Turki Bimbashi?" said he. "We  have brought you safely, and given you  our bread, to eat; and the boy loves  you. Give me a little more money, for  his sake."  The boy, a lad of fourteen, hitched  his rope-woven cartridge belt round  and showed me an antiquated, bell-  mouthed   horse-pistol.  "Give me money to buy a six-cartridge little gun like thine, dear friend.  When I am a man I will always-be a  friend to  the Inglis."  When we parted in the. tiny stone  fort I paid over thirty .francs to Seyyid Khalil, and to the "future friend  of the Inglis I gave, as a present, half  a crown. - ...  . DRY.

Premier Borden;  Minister of the 'Interior Rogers, and  Minister of Agriculture Burrell, have  announced the acceptance of the invitation to attend and participate, in the  deliberations of the congress, and arrangements are making for a large delegation of other Dominion officials and  agricultural department men. In addition,-, the ministers of agriculture of  the provinces of British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba will" attend,  and also a largo number of their staff  of investigators, instructors, demonstrators and farm experts.

They  will do escort duty to the Dominion,  Provincial and State dignitaries and  | act as body guard to the Duke of Connaught and the ambassadors of the  foreign powers who will attend.  The Canadian Board of Control is  composed of active agriculturists and  educational leaders in the western provinces, the chairman of the executive  boing Mr. Fred W. Downer, of Leth-  bridge, a well-known land owner and  capitalist of southern Alberta, the honorary chairman being the Hon. Duncan  Marshall, Minister of Agriculture of  Alberta, and thc cream of Canadian  citizenship being associated as active  workers in the various sub-committees.  Tbe dates of the big congress and  exposition have been fixed for the week  beginning October 21, a week when the  farmers from the United States, having  completed harvest and threshing, will  be able to participate in goodly numbers, and when the Canadian harvest  being finished the western provinces  can not only assemble large delegations  but can make a creditable exhibit.  It has been determined by the exposition committee that the exposition shall  be the most notable ever given in  Western Canada, and the committee,  under the chairmanship of Mr. J. W.  McNicol, who is director of the Leth-  b'ridge Exposition Company, has already begun its work of inviting manufacturers and states to participate. The  premium "list will include hundreds of  valuable prizes, and Alberta, the province in whieh the congress is to, be  held, is barred, except for local prizes,  this arrangement having been mado  out of fairness to visiting exhibitors.  The exposition will be known as "the"  International Exposition of Dry-Farmed Products, Machinery, Farm Sanitation, ancl Labor-Saving Devices, and  for the first time in the history of the  movement a special emphasis will be  laid upon special dry-farming implements and tho mechanical, health and  labor-saving devices.    ,    . \  Model farm homes, model farms, experimental seed farms, farm forestry  illustrated by a model farm demonstration of plowing and tillage, power demonstrations, etc., " will add practical  value to the exposition.

Ulcers and sores broke out on my  amis, and although I tried to heal them  by using various preparations, nothing  seemed to do me any good. The sores  spread until from fingers to elbow was  one mass of ulceration.  "I had five different doctors, and  faithfully carried out their instructions. I drank pint after pint of blood  medicines, tried salve after salve, and  lotion after lotion; but it was of no  avail.  "My father then took me thirty miles  to see a well-known doctor. He  photographed the arm and hand.

Box 84, Enderby.  In the sinking of the s.s. Titanic in  mid-ocean    ancl   the   loss   of nearly  seventeen    hundred   lives,   the world  has received  an awful warning.   The  shock has   been   sufficient to pull us  all up    in   this   speed-mad age,  and  cause us to question   whither wc are  drifting in our    frantic efforts to exceed   the   limit.   If   ^he   White Star  Line were an   American concern, and  the    Titanic    were "manned    by   an  American crew, we should never hear  the last of "such reckless sacrifice of  life."     But   the   White Star Line is  all British,    and   was   manned by a  British crew.   Away back in the 60's  Thos.

The greatest 'devils are inharmonious,  destructive, happiness-destroying and  misery-making thoughts. When these  are cast out of the mind we' are at  peace with all men and with all  things. Until we have learned how  to cast out these devils from our  own minds wc cannot know the joys  of self-control.  "If a pebble in our boot torments  us," says Edward Carpenter, "we expel it. We take off our boot and  shake it out. And once the matter  is fairly understood it is just as easy  to expel an intruding and obnoxious  thought from the mind. About this  there ought Uo he no mistake, no two  opinions. Thc thing is obvious.clear  and unmistakeable. It should be as  easy to expel an obnoxious thought  from your mind as it is to shake a  stone out of your shoe; and till a  man can do tha', it is just nonsense  to talk about i:is ascendency over  nature, and all the rest of it.

OKANAGAN SAW MILLS, Ltd E������������������d.rby M  Thursday, April 25, 1912  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Story of the Attempted Bank  Hold Up and Shooting at Lumby  (Continued from paire 1)  cautiously along looking i'or trouble  -when he saw a figure cross thc  square hurriedly in the direction o?  the hotel. Later, for he moved with  circumspection, when he reailied thy  hodl corner he -saw Murchison cross  from the bank to the hotel. ' He was  the first to enter the bank oflice, and  afterwards acted as special constable.  Albert Murphy, the bank accountant, testified to the same effect.  Walter Stacy, a lumberjack, substantiated the same story. He had  gone to' bed in Room No. 1. He'saw  Roberts come in after the shooting.  Roberts lay on the floor as there  were already two in each bed and  one on the floor. After Roberts had  been arrested Stacy found a handful  of 38 calibre cartridges under his  bed six inches from where Roberts  had been lying.  Mr. Perry, who was counsel for  Milo Roberts, cross-examined this  man strictly but elicited no further  facts of importance from him.  The ' prisoner  Offrier  asked  if  he  had noticed anybody in the hall on  ,his way to bed.    He could not state  that he.had.'  Chief Constable Fraser then _took  up the story. On receiving informa;  tion from Lumby . he had sought  ��������������������������� someone acquainted with the country and P. G. Routh had volunteered  to go out with him. They went out in  Dr.* Morris' auto, arriving in Lumby  at 12.45. He examined the door and  stated that the shot must have been  fired from "quite close as the powder  had   marked * the   woodwork.    * He  identified the bullet shown as being  the one he had picked up just inside  the  door.     He  then started  out  to  locate  the revolver.     He  first went  into the loft of the hotel woodshed  where six or eight of the lumbermen  who had come into Lumby that day  were located for the night.    Failing  to find anything suspicious there he  went to the hotel and after some investigation    roused    and,  searched  Olliverius and Off ner, who were occupying  the  same   blankets  in  the  hallway upstairs.   In the blankets he  found  seven   or   eight    38    calibre  Smith   &  Wesson    cartridges������������������ right  where they had been lying.    Under  the head of the bed-where they had  rolled    up    a    coat    for    a    pillow  he    found    a    revolver    with    four  chambers     loaded     and'    one    discharged ��������������������������� a     38-calibre     Hopkins  & Allen.    Offner at once exclaimed  that it wasxnot his gun���������������������������that he had  been jobbed.   His gun was in his roll  of blankets. ( P. G: Routh found another  revolver  fully   loaded   in   the  roll"of blankets'Offner indicated as  his.     The   chief   then   searched   Olliverius. -. '--He   found   nothing   suspicious, but since he had been in the  bed, with-Offner, in which the cartridges and the revolver were found,  he placed him also under arrest.   He  then   went  into   Room   No. ,1   and  found  Roberts  lying,  fully  dressed,  on the floor.    On searching him for  weapons  he  found- nothing  at  first  but later- discovered one 38 calibre  Smith &' Wesson cartridge in his "left  trouser pocket.       Just   then   Stacy  came out with the handful he had  found  under the bed.  ' Ia.  Bardolph  was able to add-to  the evidence that after the arrest he  was sitting in the room with Offner  and Olliverius and having granted  them cigarettes entered in*; conversation with them, H. C. Catt, J. A.  McMoreland and P. G. Routh being  in the room. He asked Offner what  he knew of the shooting and that  prisoner���������������������������who here appeared very  interested, leaning forward in the  dock���������������������������had replied "Nothing." Had  he seen Milo'Roberts after the shooting? Here Mr. Perry entered a  spirited protest. He said that Roberts had come across by them from  the bank right after the shooting  and gone towords the hotel. He had  not spoken to them. When Roberts  was brought into the room J. T. Bardolph said to him "This man (Offner) says you came across the road  after the shooting," and Roberts did  not say anything.  When asked if they wanted to ask  any questions, Olliverius spoke to  the effect that he "could not understand-it���������������������������all that business." Offner  tried to make it plain that Roberts  had not .spoken to them and that*  they were inside the hotel when he  passed.  Ex-Chief Constable Routh testified  to the same effect^-as the former witnesses. ^  Chief Fraser had" no more witnesses to call., *���������������������������  Stipendiary Magistrate Norris said  that they could not let the matter  rest there. A man had been shot at  and'come within an ace of losing his  life, and these men had gone quietly  to bed while the ��������������������������� whole town'^was  being roused.    .  Mr. Perry pointed out that the  shooting had not disturbed Thomas  Nesbitt from going peacefully back  to bed,- and that others of the'witnesses  had' not  been   roused  while  Harvey & Rodie  Real Estate, Insurance, Etc.

Last Christmas, a young man  named Thurman disappeared from  his home .in New York. A few weeks  later, the remainsvof a human body  were found in a mass of cinders and,  from them,, the New York police deduced that Thurman had been mui*^  dured. A week later, they likewise  deduced that one of his two brothers  had done it hut could not deduce  from (lie charred flesh and the molted.*; buttons which of them it was.  "So they 'arrested both of them.  After the usual proceedings, which  are technically known as "the third  degree," one brother confessed that  he and he alone was responsible for  the crime, and gave what the police  say was a graphic and convincing  account of the way it was committed. The other brother was then  "put   through"   the  same   "process"  GRANTS OF WATER-POWERS  Sure and prompt  Delivery on date promised  The   water-powers   of    Canada are  among the most valuable possessions-  the country has.

The   Columbia Flour ���������������������������  and he also confessed that he and hei ing Mills Co., Ltd. I  alone was guilty, at the same time  lolling an equally, plausible but  radically different story of what had  occurred.  The police were in a quandary.  Their zeal and resourcefulness had  apparently led them farther than  was either necessary or desirable.  Por jury purposes, two confessions  were worse than hone at all,  especially two conflicting confessions; yet justice must be satisfied  and the reputation of the force  maintained.  While   matters  were  still   in   this  parlous state, the Gordian knot was  cut by the return of the dead man  himself who had worked on a  farm  instead of being murdered.   The two  brother^ explained  their confessions  hi: saying that after two sessions of  live  hours'   each   of   "the   third   degree,"  they werp  willing to confess  anything.     Others   have "frequently  paid the same thing, which leads to  t'-e belief that if "interrogations" of  this kind-are to be made part of the  criminal procedure of any country, it  would   be. better    to   do   so    under  indicia! direction, as in France, than  in   the   light-hearted   and   irresponsible   way  which  is  often  emploved  both here and in the United States.  ���������������������������Montreal Star. .   -.   .   ...

We grow from- a lower form of  animal into a higher form of animal,  and from* a "lower thought into a  higher. We must ever be willing to  reach out after new things, new  knowledge, new life, or we will go  backward. ' We cannot stand still.  If we will not grow then we cannot  know. Nature is kind���������������������������extremely  kind���������������������������but she is just,���������������������������extremely  just���������������������������also. She demands that we  shall exert an effort to know; then  she lets us grow into the knowledge  in the most natural way possible'���������������������������  knowledge that was known from th'  beginning. |  There isn't anything new under  the sun. We like to think there is,  especially when we have evolved an  idea that to us looks new, but of a  truth there is nothing new. . Even  in what we are pleased to term our  "advanced age" we have ,not yet  reached the stage where man knows  himself, The man Jesus knew much  more than we about man's weaknesses and his needs���������������������������and He lived  nearly two thousand years ago.  "Oh, well," you say, "Jesus was  divine, and we are only human."  Let us not enter into any controversy  about the divinity of Jesus, but let  me tell you this, dear heart, until  we have surmounted this great gulf  that man has set up between himself  and Jesus Christ man cannot reach  the high place set before him by God.  What we are so ready to call the  divinity of Christ is simply the indwelling of the Great'Spirit* of Good  ���������������������������God if you will.    And this divinitv  i  is as much your privilege and mine  as it was His.���������������������������-Was Confucius divine,  was Theophratus, was ��������������������������� Paul, was  Aristotle, was Pliny���������������������������was any of the  hundreds of men who have given so  much to the world of thought and  truth?  All of these men���������������������������and Jesus too-  taught the .truth about ~ man's  physical advancement and coupled it  with his spiritual upbuilding.

A Traveler's Experience
"My one wish will be," writes Harry
P. Pollard, a well known boot and shoe
traveller of Hartford, "that everyone
with a bad stomach may learn as I
did before it's too late, that Nerviline
is the one remedy to cure. Why, 1
was in mighty bad shape, my digestion
was all wrong, and every night I would
waken up with a start, and find" my
heart jumping like a threshing machine. This >vas caused by gas in my
stomach pressing against my heart.
When ^started to uso Nerviline 1 got
better mighty fast, it is certainly a
grand remedy for the travelling man,
keeps your stomach in order, cures
cramps, ..revents lumbago or rheumatism, breaks up chest colds and sore
throat���������in fact, thero hasn't been an
ache or pain inside or outside for the
past two years that ] haven't cured
with i\erviline. Do you wonder I recommend  it?"
That Reminds We
Over  two  thousand years ago
was  a war  between   China  and
golia   and   China   was   invaded
Mongolian army under Mao-tun
Chinese emperor was  besieged
by   a
in  the
city of Ping, and when the situation
seemed to be hopeless he ordered that
a number of lay figures representing
beautiful women be made and exposed
on the city wails. He then caused a
message to lie sent Lo thc wife of the
Mongolian-leader to the effect that
these attractive maidens were intended
as a present to her husband. The ruse
was entirely successful, '.rhe siege was
raised forthwith and Mao-tun was removed out of the temptation zone by
his apprehensive spouse. Which shows
that in some respects at least the world
does not move at all, and that soldiers
should leave thoir wives at home if
they wish for a free hand in dealing
with  the  enemy.
"That new boarder is acting in a
rather peculiar manner."
"Yes," said the landlady. "He is
either going to pay up or propose."
* ��������� *    *
"Is there anything you can do better than any one else?"
"Yes," replied the small boy, "I kin
read my own writing."
* *.    *
llarduppc���������Is Wigwag honest?
Dorrowell���������Well, he came around to
my house the other day and stole an
umbrella I had borrowed  from him.
* *    *
"You say your jewels were stolen
while the family was at dinner'."
"i\"6, no. This is an important robbery, oflicer. Our dinner was stolen
while we were putting on our jewels."
* *���������    *
"Authors don t live in garrets any
"No; the elevators come too handy
for the bailiffs. The ground floor offers
the quick get-away."
* *    *
"What names would you suggest for
a list of the world's greatest men?"
"None," replied Mr. Meekton. "After
talking with Henrietta I'm inclined to
think there isn't any such thing."
* *    *���������
" "I want you to understand that I got
my money by hard work."
"Why, I thought it was left you by
your uncle."
"So it was, but I had hard work getting it away from the lawyers."

Chronic Throat Trouble I
Permanently Cured
Miss Counter's Case  Proves the Wonderful   Efficacy  of  Catarrhozone
in   All   Throat   and   Nose
Windsor, Ont.���������Miss Counter's case
will prove of great interest to everyone troubled with sore throat, bronchitis or weak  lungs.
When asked for a statement, Miss
Counter said: "About seven years ago
I contracted a heavy cold that settled
on my lungs and resisted all treatment. After I had tried several doctors here and specialists in Detroit
without benefit, I went to my druggist ancl asked him for the best remedy he had for cold on the lungs. He
recommended Catarrhozone, which
cured my cold in oife week. It brought
back my voice, and I have been ever
since free from my old trouble. For
coughs, colds and lung trouble I am
sure that Catarrhozone is the best
remedy. It goes right to thc sore
spot, gives quick relief, and makes a
lasting cure."
Catarrhozone cures because its healing vapor is inhaled to the very places
that are sore and inflamed.
To permanently cure your winter
ills, your coughs, sneezing and Catarrh, by all means use a tried and
proven remedy like Catarrhozone.
But beware of the ' substitutor and
imitator. Look for Catarrhozone only.

by   winning  the   Charter   Oak   $10,000

At  that  time   thc   world's   record   for

Dr. Carl Kassner, of the Royal Prussian Meteorological Institute, has given
Lho name "Snow Garlands" to a curious
form occasionally    assumed    by snow
lying on  window-ledges,  the branches
of trees, etc., when the temperature is
about at the freezing point. As the strip
of snow  softens  it slips  down  in  the
middle,  like a sagging rope,  but continues to be supported at the ends.    A
snow garland that formed on the building occupied by the Meteorological Institute in Berlin, was probably the first
one ever photographed, as well as the
largest ever  recorded.      The  distance
between    the    points  of support was
about 3 feet 0 inches;  the vertical sag
amounted to nearly 1G inches; ancl the
average thickness of tlie rope of snow
was   about   '1   inches.      Probably   the
snow  was  first softened  by  the  heat
of the building.   The middle, after slipping   down,   was   removed   from   this
source of heat and froze again; otherwise it could  hardly,have  maintained
its   integrity  for  any   length   of   lime.
The whole process depends upon grad- ,
ual changes and alterations of temperature, and fhe phenomenon is probably
of rare occurrence.

1 K.MDERBY  PRESS  AND  WALKER'S  WEEKLY  &  The Firing of Vengeance  The Wild Man gnashed his teeth.  "Wot, me?" hc cried. "Me? Who turned 'em away at every stand all last  season? Me? Why, if it wasn't f'r  me ye'd have to throw the S. R. 0.  sign away!" He roared in a manner  frightful to hear and shook the bars  of his wire-enclosed cage. "Fifteen  cents?'' Not on y'r life. Why, 1 couldn't make enough at that f'r salve. A  quarter or nuthin'."  "Fifteen or nothin'," said Simpkins,  tho manager. "1 can get a jungloful  o' Wild Men for fifteen. You must  think I'm a Rockyfeller. Why, last  Thursday you got twenty-six bites, an'  that made six-fifty for one day's work.  The' ain't a Wild Man in the United  States worth that."  "Well, I get a quarter every time a  snake bites me. Yes-siree, or 1 quit.  Llight now, too.   Understand?     Right  now?" He rattled his bars again in  genuine agitation.  ��������������������������� "Great guns, Mike," urged the manager, "you get your found, ,loo. what  do ych want?   The whole gate?"  "Found! Do ych think I don't eat  nothin' but raw meat? Y'r insultin',  that's what you are. Lemme out o'  here!"  The manager readied to the door of  the cage. In his hand, ready open, was  a padlock.   He snapped il on.        .    .  From  outside came  the  sh utile  and  e murmur of the matinee crowd and the  rising  boom  of  the  barker:   "Onlcc   j.  dime,   ladies   and   gentlemen,   onlee   a  '-   dime!    See thc Wild Man from Yuck-  a-tan, thc most feerocious "  "You ain't agoin' to throw us down  now,   are  -you?"   asked   thc   manager,  - 'grinning.    "When  it's almost time f'r  the curtain to-go up? Why, fifteen  minutes was called a long time ago.  ''Be calm, now, Mike; don't rage that  way, even if y' arc a Wild Man. Just  think that the more y' raise thc devil,  the better the sIioav is.   But don't sulk?  ��������������������������� now,  either."

Even Pete, his favorite  rattlesnake, who would bite him at the.  word, seemed distant. Perhaps a subtle  fellow-feeling^ kept thc reptile gloomy  in a corner.  "Fifteen cents!" growled the Wild  Man to himself. "Huh! They'll want  to put taximeters on the snakes next."   I itt,?___'3ifL_LL19__l!:1irr!i"ln_ _susp_cct   that  the creature whom they pitied (while  wondering where on earth was Yucatan) was that ever-tragic figure, tho  jester masking his sorrow.  As he (lung tho snakes through the  bars against the wire mesh, the  pseudo-Yucatanesc groped for hope.  From her pedestal next him, tho Circassian Beauty sympathized openly in  thc lulls. "Cheer up!" she muttered.  "Don't you take a cent less than two-  bits. Why, I wouldn't let one o' them  things bile me for less than ha'f a dol-  lah."  "Gr-r-r!" In the Wilc^ Man's tongue,  that signified yes; in the dull moments  of (he season hc had worked out a  simple code for surreptitious talk with  thc Circassian, much as prisoners are  said to find ways of communicating  with 'thoir fellows whom they have  never seen.  "An' that Mermaid! I think she's  too mean f'r anything to laugh at you  thataway. She ain't got no womanly  sympathy. She's a hussy! An' that  dwarf!"  "Wherrrrroooooo!" (One meaning of  this was external hate: the context  seemed to point to that interpretation.)  "That Mermaid acts like a raw amateur." Thc Circassian shook her  frizzled yellow wig. Her motive was  not sympathy, but professional jpal-  ousy. Tho Mermaid was drawing from  her   crowds:   therefore   anything."��������������������������� that  fostered, even Mike. She smiled in a  manner that barely emerged irom thc  sisterly.  Noting this, the Mermaid flapped her  green, gold-flecked tail and lighted a  cigarette with nonchalance, throwing  an ocular caress to Tom' Thumb. The  Wild Man clung do the bars, a pathetic  light in his eyes. Deliberately, to  clinch the rebuff, the Mermaid blew  a  puff in his direction.  Mike recognized his quietus. "Oh.  it's twenty-three f'r me, all right," he  murmured. "An' to think that on'y  last week she was over here pettin'  Pete." I-Ie caressed the snake, which  for the moment became, to him, a lover's momento.  Before the cage were Simpkins and  Bill, his assistant, oflicially the stage  manager. "When he was captured,"  said the boss to a group, turning spieler  to add to Mike's tribulation, "his mate,  a fcemale chimpanzee, escaped.- He's  very ferocious. Killed three men when  he was caught. We feed him raw meat,  but now an' then he eats the snakes.  Terribul expense."  Simpkins was wondering* how. far he  could rub' it in without causing the  Wild Man from Yucatan to swear at  him openly in Anglo-Saxon. But Mike  did not even roar. With malice aforethought, he stretched Pete and ran up  a dollar and a quarter's worth of bites  while the manager frowned.  Mike was too tame; the gathering  passed on to the Circassian, selling her  own pictures, leaving but- a thin, tedious line before the cage.  Acros the aisle the Yucalanian gazed  forlornly at the Mermaid while she  sang "Won't You Come and Play With  Me" to show she was really and truly  alive. Her words were a taunt and  her manner a mockery. She dived  from her rock and swam to the'side  of the tank nearest the dwarf, chaffing  him playfully till his puckered face  beamed.  "You made ( a-hit with the big fat  woman "in that bunch, Tom," she said,  exhilarated at serving- a double end���������������������������  emphasizing hei* contempt Ior the Wild  Man, and proving, to Tom Thumb her  faith in him. For without "faith, being  a woman, she would never have dared  to jest even about an> impression on  :even a fat farmer's wife.  Tom looked "at Mike., His glance held  the insolence of a victorious rival certain of immunity from "retaliation. He  slowly extended a fat little hand and  chuckled the Mermaid under the chin.  The" perfidious amphibian dropped.back  into the' tepid water ,witira-splash and  twirled voluptuously to tho'rock, there  to sing, as she" combed her. tresses,  '* Wouldn't"You ;]Mko To" Hug lie?" - -  _* It'was the breaking point;���������������������������_ In" that  instant the harrowed heart_offlhe Wild  Man sought revenge. "HI on'y had  yen alone in a-dark'cdrii'er," he thought,  glowering, at .the 'dwarf,"buC reflection  determined that Tom was really beneath thc .contempt of six feet" four. I-Ie  might-spank- liim, "yes; 'but "what 'surcease for a broken heart, in that?  Then, at a flash, Mike conceived his  plan���������������������������a double-edged plan to wield  against the mocker ancl the wage-paring Simpkins. - *;"    . .-,"   *  That' night- the cage "of the Wild Man  ,was empty.

Simpkins had just finished directing  thc manufacture of dents and scratches  in the cage, to give versimilitude to  the story of the escape, when the barker took his stand outside for the preliminary  drumming* up  of  the crowd.  "r>ill," th'e boss asked thc stage manager, "are we all sot?"  ye know," reported  The Mermaid wet her forehead. Even  the water l'eit warmer than usual. She  called Mr. Simpkins. He listened, dipped the tips of two fat* fingers in lhe  Lank, ancl gave his verdict.-   "Bosh!,"     j  The Mermaid clung lo the rock. In  half an hour she was certain lhe tank  had gained in temperature. But Mr.  Simpkins was not to be consulted: He  was worried, and he had gone out again  to search saloons for the Wild Ma.i.  The crowds grew thicker, ll was a  great house; but chance of relief, of  avoidance of a-difficulty, dwindled wilh  the increase.  "Bill must 'a' put on more coal than  usual," suggested Tom.  "Well 1 guess yes," said his adorer.  Tom noted that she didn't look at all  pretty when her face was red. Now  and then lier lips opened for a breath.  She panted a bit. "Gosh!" she confided to the dwarf.  Five minutes passed, with professional smiles for the gaping spectators,  but not one bit of song. Then ten minutes. Still the water warmed. The  smiles died away.  "Tom," she said, braving the tank to  get nearer him, "something's clone bust,  sure-pop." Her manner was half-beseeching.  "Oh, cheer up; it won't last long."  "If this keeps up it means the ruin  of my professional career."  The outlook was dire. Simpkins was  still trying to find the saloon that  might harbor Mike. Great are the,worries of an impresario; we have it on  more testimony than Simpkins'." The  Mermaid was now edging from side to  side of her perch, and she lifted her  tail from the water with great frequency. * -  Where was Bill? Bill was out trying  to find Mr.'Simpkins.    ' s    -  The Mermaid's temper rose with the  temperature of the water. "Huh!" she  ejaculated. "What do they think they're runnin'? A show, or a movement  to aid indigent barkeepers?" Again:  "Why don't they send somebody to the  engine room. Do they think I'm a lobster?" -._.-��������������������������� '   -  Tom, who lacked ingenuity and initiative, advised' patience.

Then  another five.    And then the cljmax.  The Mermaid, left her rock.' She  gazed defiantly at thc spectators about  her.

Of course  the weight could not be ascertained by  actually weighing a whale, but by taking exact measurements of the body  and reckoning (lhe specific weight of  each part. The specific weight, which  is about the same as that of the water,  is tlie reason that some whales do not  sink after they are dead. It also gives  the whales the ability to float on the  surface.  This is important in connection with  the question whether whales sleep.  The idea that they sleep at the bottom of the sea is just as untenable  as that they remain at the bottom all  winter. As whales are descended  from land mammals, which are heavier  than water, a gradual decrease in their,  specific weight must have taken place.  This decrease was brought about in  different ways,J by decreasing and  slowing do-\\n in the ossification of  the skeleton and by the accumulation  of a thick layer of fat under the skin.  The head in particular, which in some  whales measures a third of the whole  body, had to become lighter so that  the whale might retain an horizontal  pos'ture while at rest" and breathe  while "at rest without making special  swimming motions. This is the reason for the . pneumatic chambers -in  the skull, for the'accumulation of oil  of specificially light weight in the front  of the head, for the- fluid masses of  marrow in the lower jaw or the tremendous-cushions of fat in the tongues of large whalebone whales. The  effort to breathe while at rest without  having to change the position of the"  body led .to a change in the position of  the nose which has moved up towards  the top of the head, the highest point of  nose which has moved' up towards the  top of the h'end, the highest point,of  tlie body as it rises after1 diving. -The  nose has given up its function as an  organ of smell and now serves only as  the point,through which air is inhaled  and exhaled. ' The toothed whale's external nose is a tremendously," large,  orescent-shaped " opening, tho whalebone-whale has two separate slits.  -But diving,'too,-was not without'eon-  siderable influence on1 the alteration of  the body. ..The depth -which whales  reach "varies, "of course, with" the' dif-  f -rent .kinds, .the whalebone whale, ;for  instance,- does, rot" dive as'deep, for.*it  finds its food relativi$Iy'_near the surface.-  -With the': large-toothed-'whale, which  feeds on'-cuttlefish'it. is otherwise..- It  must* dive, to fa- great, depth. 7;-A" whale'  has been known, to - go-down with a  harpoon.in'its body attached-to a. line  nearly .one thousand metres' long .and  not- until three-quarters,- of -an - hour,  later did it.reappear quite close to .the  ship.',.,/ ' " .'-,.-' j ���������������������������-.*.'��������������������������� ���������������������������  -"J Of, course, _only ���������������������������* rafdical. adaptive  changes in the'"body has made it possible for.the whale to'remain at such  a depth." The openings of the body-  close very' tightly. -The stronger,  for instance, the, pressure of-the-water  the tighter the nose, which "is.provided with a curious valve arrangement,' closes. The little-eye is-surrounded by a covering as hard as iron  and fastened**- by powerful muscles to  the side of the eye socket. -:The circulation of the blood is slower'when the  whale dives; the amount of a-'whale's  blood is about double 7 that of  a . land mammal; .-.the head artery, which lies rather near the surface, is obliterated and the brain receives thc blood through vessels ^that  lie protected in the neural canal; the  body "is   protected   from   the  pressure  Life in the water has also, of course,  determined thc nature of the whale's  food. The great whalebone whales  feed on "plankton," that is/either on  molluscs, small crabs or small fishes  that swim in vast schools. It is the  whalebone whales lhat have depending plates of whalebone on both sides  of the palate, the inner edges of which  are fringed so that they act as a filter ancl hold the food while the water  runs off through the spaces between  the whalebones. Then the great  tongue pushes tho food back and it  passes through the relatively small  throat into the stomach. These teeth  are indeed not fitted to chew. The  food is swallowed whole and the  stomach, which lacks salivary glands,  is therefore divided into several departments. .   j  That the whalebones are a special  adaptive phenomenon is shown by their  later appearance in the history of  evolution. The whalebone whales, too,  are descended-from toothed-mammals,  for the young embryo has a full set  of teeth in its jaws, which, however,  never come through'but are reabsorbed "during the further development of  the embryo. , ���������������������������        -,-'���������������������������-  Other "adaptive phenomena " have  been produced by the manner of-progression, swimming." Instead of legs,  whales have fins, and only breast fins,  .while the belly fins have disappeared.  Much- as the breast fins differ from",  fhe front extremities" of the mammals  that live on land, their'skeleton and'  their muscles are made on the "same  plan.

Thd Mermaid splashed into her tank.  The Circassian mounted her throne.  The dwarf took his place like a little  conqueror. All was as ever, save for  thc lacking cry of the Wild Man.  The crowds came, and- over them  the Mermaid queened it. The night  was hers. The dents in the cage were  ignored. The Circassian had sold only  $].40 worth of her photographs by 9.30.  The Ossified Gentleman might as well  never have been quarried.  "What makes the Wild Man wild?"  asked the Mermaid of her Tom, and she  laughed dolingly whon he told her sh(  was a great kidder. For the benefit of  the departed, even if he could not hear  she sang "You're All Right But Pleas.-  Stay Away."  As she sat on her rock smoking, sh-  fanned herself.

THE MAIL-  BAGS OF THE WORL  RULERS  D'  Thc  mail-bag  at  the  Vatican   p;o-  bably contains  the largest number of  _le.tters__that_ are .addressed _to_any._sin-.  gle person  or institution.      After  the  Pope, the Kaiser receives (he greatest  number, fully half being addressed to  him personally.    Emperor William hn?;  never  less   than   7,500  letters  daily,  a  goodly   proportion   of   which   are   ap-  yeals- to right, wrongs ahou: which hc  knows nothing and would b<_ powerless  to act if he  did.      Many are private  dipl'-'m-iatic  letters.      After  him  comes  the President of the Unite 1 States, who  gets  a  daily  average of  5,000  letters.  The mail of the present King of. England has dwindled to 2,500 lifters, probably a third of tlie number received  by  his father.      The mail-bag of the  T.i.ij.  is  smaller  still,  about   500   persons writing daily to one well known  to be hedged  in  by officialdom.    II i?  said  that the royal palace  in  Madrid  gets 300 letters, addressed for the most  part   to   his   democratic   Majesty,   iho  young Alfonso, but a goodly share falling  fo   the   lot  of  the   Queen.      Thr  Italian King gets only about 200  letters  daily,  while  thc mail-bag of tlv  President  of  France    varies    greatly  When the foreign population in Pari  is most numerous, his mail reaches a  high an average as the American Pre  ������������������������������������������������������ident, but in  other months the aver  >.ge is comparatively small.     It is sai'  hat the Emperor of Japan has only rp  ���������������������������ently   begun   to   be   troubled   in   th'  -mnner,   letters  lo  him  being  main'  1   the   nature  of  appeals   to   add   h  wift  and   glorious   war  to  the  tern  .ory of tho sun  kingdom.  -���������������������������jf-thc^vii rerib\^a~tTcmT*5ri"d6us coverTng  of fat and gigantic muscles. In shorf.  all these things are adaptive measures  for diving, for long ancl deep diving.  Finally wc come to a very important question, that of the nourishment  of--the young. Thc young whale is  already quite large at birth, sometimes  nearly half as long as thc hiother.  Whales, too, have an interest in providing their young with tinwatcred  milk,���������������������������he)ice..arrangomcnts-havcfsheen  made to prevent ils coming in contact with the water. Above all it is  first collected in a container in the  mother's body, tho cistern, and then  by the pressure of a muscle is squirted  directly into tlie baby's mouth.  We  frequently  read   that a toothed  whale   can   be . distinguished   from   a  whalebone whale even at a great distance by the one or two spouts that it  blows into' the air.      In reality, however, we can only see a single stream  even when  it comes from  the whalebone whale,  because,  though  the  two  are divided at thc base, they unite in  one    immediately    after    tho    escape.  Since the time of Aristotle people have  assumed      that    whales    blew    water  through their noses, not, as is actually  the case, condensed breath.     That this  view was wrong is proved by thc fact  ilone   that   thc   throat   of   thc   whale,  which is the only way that the water  :an  enter,  is  not  connected  with  the  tir passage.      This  process "of spoiling  in   the  larger  whales   is  a  fairly  loisy  affair,  but it is  certain  that at  east one whale, the humpback whale,  uis  a  sort, of  voice  and   when   it   is  'rightened ll squeals much as a large  'ig does when it is being killed.     As  he   animal   has   no   vocal   cords,   the  ones arc probably produced by vibrat-  ng  cartilaginous  parts  and   they  are  \pellcd   not   through   thc   mouth   but  'lroutrh  tho  nose.

Hc declines to make any precise  statement as to the Turkish force, but  he says it contains all the men that are  needed, that every Arab In the desert  is ready to fight, and that the sheikhs  are constantly arriving with thoir followers.    Most  of them  have   rifles  of  some   sort,   while   tho   Senoussi   have  Mausers.    Many of these desert warriors   have   long   two-handled   swords  and chain armor that wore left behind  by  the Crusaders ancl that have been  kept   ever  since.      That   numbers   of  these weapons were still  in  existence  was well known, but there Is food for  the imagination  in the fact lhat  they  are now being used to repel a Christian  invader.      I ieutenant   Montago    says  that'the Turks have/ plenty of provisions and  that  they can carry  on the  war "forever.   The only thing they lack  is medicine, and especially chloroform. '  He suggests that the reports of Italian  victories are mostly fairy stories, and  ns for their casualty lists he says that  thoy arc  ahfiirdlv  understated,  as  he  counted the dead himself.  %  ;* C   m,  r^sr***^;^^.^^?-^^  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, April 25, 1912  We have Just Received  and Placed in Stock  A Carload of  Fine Furniture  IN  MISSION  DULL  UAHOGANY,  FUMED  OAK,  SATIN  '-VALNUT  AND  GOLDEN    OAK,   IN   DINING     ROOM AND BED ROOM SUITES,  -   TABLES  AND  WRITING     DESKS,  BUFFETS   AND  CH1FFONEBRS,      FOR    CUSTOMERS  WHO  LIKE THE    BEST, AND  You will find our prices  a little better than  elsewhere  The Corporation -of'tlie City of Enderty  IF YOU FILL  YOUR CURTAIN WANTS      HERE    YOU      WILL    SAVE;  MONEY. ���������������������������   Madrass at 25c yd up.
