Bowser addressed a public meeting  at Vernon Monday evening, on the  policy of the Government. The Vernon opera house was crowded to the  doors by an audience that showed it  was fully in accord with the policy  of the Premier on every possible occasion. The attendance from Ender-  - by was somewhat, limited, owing*to  the fact   having    been   made known  - that the seating capacity of the hall  was too small to take care of any  crowd larger than 500. However, the  Vernon "*��������������������������� committee in charge took  particular care to see that outsiders  were provided for.  In. his    opening   remarks,  the Pre-  -mier drew.attention   to the marvelous    development-, noticeable   on   all  sides' as'   one^ traverses   the Yalley,  and-said-   that   what, was going  on  here was but aii example of the con-  ; ditions throughout~the_provinCb7, 7-  '���������������������������:: The. present .election, affords a,-rather/, unique" "experience..   There" are  "eig'ht seats'  already   declared by, ac-  ���������������������������. clamation for the *��������������������������� Government, and'a  large number "of" other constituencies  - wilfnot be contested by the"Liberals.  Where .-.there are. Liberals -it seems to  " be-a-'rather' academic effort.-' He  considered  it    a   compliment to  the  - government, and -- a compliment the  government,was not backward ^.acknowledging, as it- was;a clear indication "of the satisfaction felt by.the  Liberals in "thc policy pursued by his  commission promised   ^y the .Ottawa  government.    .  He referred to the splendid surplus  with the people. There should not be  any fear felt in connection with the  proposed railroad construction. The  government had ' taken every precaution to protect the people's interest.  We have the guarantee of the road  that they will indemnify the country  held by the provincial government, a j for any shortage   in   the payment of  curplus of $8,000,000 ;���������������������������s the result of [principal,    and   this is covered by a*  the Conservative administration. But  as a province, we are just opening  up^ our ��������������������������� immense resources;'" the demands of progress have Just commenced, and he could'jee in.the near  future many big and expensive undertakings.  In dealing - with the" Asiatic question Premier McBride was loudly ap-'  plauded when he remarked: ^ . "We  have no dispute to be settled between  this country and Japan and .China.'  I look for no trouble;.I anticipate no  complications, -but we'contend that  there is'no necessity,., f.incurring the  enmity of these countries when we  sayforNour own'-protection we shall'  demand the-right to say who should  or should not' enter. 'We believe we  have: a country p&ramountly, a7wLite  man's country *��������������������������� and it should- be re-'  tained as such', v ', The Premier .said  there was" "also a. larger phase 'of the  ���������������������������question, -;and' intimated^; that -we  were thinking too much of the "development of oiir coast cities ana'not  enough of their "protection. He urged  that more interest should be taken in  military arid naval -affairs. . In our  marvelous prosperity' we must-not  .forget-the protection of-it:/vV -   . ���������������������������  Taking up therailway,policy of the  government, the Premier said the'rea-  govcrnment." The attitude of the j son he had appealed to the electorate  Liberals stamps" them as- .typical 'at this time was'because they desired'  westerners,' who are broad enough to :to submit a second installment of.the  see the good in the work being done. | railway policy   and    they ��������������������������� wanted to  He fully appreciated this; and he and  his colleagues would-ever, try to be a  government of all the people.  All the people of the province do  not agree that he has been all that  others have claimed for him.   Ho did  not mind the adverse criticism, for  he knew in his own mind that he has  as all times continued his efforts to  give the province the best government possible. If he has been able  to be of service to the province as  prime minister, it has been becauso  the people of British Columbia have  stood behind him. \If there is to be  any gratitude-introduced,-it must-be  on his part���������������������������gratitude to the people  for having sent the strong men to  assist him in the work of administering thc affairs of the province.  The Premier spoke very warmly ol  the capacity ami integrity of his  friend and colleague, the Hon, Price  Ellison, and he assured the people  of Vernon that the good reputation  hc bore at home .clings to him in his  management of the business of Minister of Finance. He would have  been pleased to see the election of  Mr. Ellison by acclamation. He did  not know how it would feel to be  elected by acclamation, since he had  always had to fight inch by inch for  everything gained by him, and then  had to fight as hard to hold it, but  for the satisfaction it would have  been to Mr. Ellison, he had hoped to  see him returned without opposition.  The Premier referred to the success  of the mission of himself and colleagues to Ottawa in the matter of  "better terms" and pointed to the  advantages that would accrue to the  province as the result of the enquiry  know -if .the " electors \axe going to  help carry it through. Two yearg'  ago he promised the Okanagan an  extension ' of the C. N. R. He was  here to make good. This branch will  cost five or.six   million dollars, but  "lle~knew of no more important extension. He did not have any data*  and could not say how far south of.  Kelowna the . road would go, but if  the development continues it may be  expected to enter every section of the'  Okanagan. The Premier referred to  the financial strength and stability  of the C. N. R., and called attention  to-the-great-work done-by this-road  in its construction to the coast. He  said that Sir William Mackenzie waa;  so impressed by his visit to the Okanagan some months ago, hc was prepared to push his road into every  section that promised business.   -  Mr. McBride referred briefly to the  criticism directed against him by the  Opposition press. He had been accused of being a tool of this, road  and that, but he did not propose to  waste any time endeavoring to extricate himself from a position he never  had been in. If any railway company  is ready to do business and is open  and above board, he would always  be found ready to talk business.  Premier McBride concluded his remarks amid a storm of applause, and  was followed by the Hon. Mr. Bowser. Mr. Bowser dealt specifically  with the railway policy, and produced figures to show an instructive  comparison between the affairs of the  province nine years ago, when the  McBride government came into power  and the affairs of the present. The  object   of   their   present tour of the  first mortgage on the road.  The construction work on the extension -into the Okanagan will be'  started, on or* before the 1st of July,  1912," and the road -.vill*be completed,  by" the 1st of July, 1915.  - The "Attorney- General referred to  the .vhigh financial- standing of the  province. When ..the McBride - government came'into power the public debt,  amounted to $11,250,000," and the  treasury was., depleted.. To-day the  public debt.stands at $10,000,000, and  the "province "has, on deposit a cash  reserve- of - $8,000,000," with sinking  funds sufficient to" wipe out'.the debt.  ��������������������������� Reference' was made- to.the several  commissions to be.appointed to carry  on the "investigations proposed by the=  recent legislature, -and -the' Attorney  general foreshadowed legislatiorijthat'  will,follow as the result of these investigations.' .  - , zi/   -',-,     -...-.,,������������������  ' "At' the . conclusion-. > ol 7 the public  meeting, a complimentary banquet'  .was-tendered the distinguished, speakers,-at which- both; the Premier and*  Attorney General. made short replies  to'the toast of the evening.

The prisoners were being taken  to Kamloops to await trial on the  charge of highway robbery. They  were shackled together. The officer  took his prisoners to a cabin and all  layed down to await breakfast on the  boat. The constable took the upper  berth and the two men occupied the  lower. Nothing was heard to attract the attention of the crew, and  what really did take place is not  known. It is surmised that the Constable locked himself in the cabin  with the men and put the key in his  pocket.   He then    layed down in the  have reached up and. taken his gun and  brained thc sleeping jfficer with the  butt of it. They apparently then  found the keys to the shackles and  freed themselves and quietly unlocked  the cabin door, took breakfast on the  boat and when the boat reached the  wharf at Peachlan'd they walked  ashore and were gono.  After the boat left Peachland, the  constable was found unconscious iti  his berth with an ugly wound on the  forehead through which his brains  were oozing. He was carried off the  boat at Kelowna - still unconscious  and at last reports yesterday he was  still alive but in a comatose state.  All the provincial constables in the  upper berth and it is presumed went district are searching the hills back  to sleep.

Then sho smiled. It was the last time  she mentioned the subject.  We didn't say anything to the neighbors until the furniture bosun to so  out. Then the women Hocked in arid  Ruth was hard pressed to keep our  ��������������������������� secret. 1 sat upstairs and chuckled a.s  ] heard her replies. She says it's the  only time I ever failed to stand by her,  but it didn't seein to me like anything  but a joke,  "We shall want to keep track of  you," said little Mrs. Grover. "Where  shall  we address you?"  "Oh, I can't tell," answered Ruth,  truthfully  enough.  "Are you going- far?"  '  "Y'-'s.     Oh���������������������������a   long,   long  way."  That was true enough too. We  couldn't have gone farther out of their  lives   if   we'd   sailed  for  Australia.  And so they kept it up. That night  we made a round of lhe houses and  everyone was very much surprised and  very much grieved, and very curious.  To all their inquiries, I made the same  reply: that I was going Lo emigrate.  Some of them looked wistful.  "Jove."   said   Hrown,   who  was  with  the insurance company, "but I wish  I  had   the   nerve  to  do   that.   I  suppose  vou're going west?"  "Were going west first," I answered.  The road to-the station  was almost  due  west.  "They say there are great chances  out in'that"country." he said. "It isn't  so overcrowded as here."  "J don't know about that," J answered, "but there are chances enough."  Some of the women cried and all the  men shook hands cordially and wished  us good luck.   But it didn't mean mueh  - to me. , The time I needed their handshakes was gone.   1 learned later that  - as a result of our secrecy I was vari-  . ously   credited   with   having   lost   my  reason with my job; with having inherited a'fortune, with having gambled  -in-the market;-with,-thrown in for good  :mensure, a darker hint about having  misappropriated funds of the United  ' Woollen. But, somehow, their nastiest  gossip did not "disturb-me. lt had no  power to harm either me or mine. 1  was already beyond their reach. Before 1 left 1 wished them all Godspeed  on the dainty journey they were making in their cockleshell. Then'so far  \s they were concerned I dropped, off  into the sea with my wife and boy.  chair, a, rug and a few of his personal  treasures; our own room contained  just the bed, chair and washstand.

This gave us easy access  to the flat roof live stories above the  street From here we not only had  a 'magnificent view of tlie harbor, but  even on the hottest days felt something of a sea breeze. Coming down  here in June we appreciated that before Lhe summer was over.

"Billy," she said, "there's one thing  we're going to do in this new beginning: we're going to save���������������������������if it's only  ten cents a week."  1 shook my head doubtfully.  "I'm  afraid  you  can't  until I get a  raise," J said.  "We tried waiting for raises before,"  she answered.  "I know, but "  "There aren't going to be any buts,"  she answered decidedly.  "But six dollars a week���������������������������"'  "Is six dollars a week," she broke  in. "We must live on five-fifty, that's  all."  "With steak thirty cents a pound?"  "We won't have steak. That's the  point. Our neighbors around here  don't look starved, and Ihey have larger families than ours. And Lhey don't  even   buy   intelligently."  "How do you know that?"  "I've been watching them at the  little stores in the square. They pay  there' as much for half-decayed stuff  as they'd have fo pay for fresh odds  and ends at the big market."  She rested  her pad  upon  her knee.  "Now in the first place, Billy, we're  going to  live much more simply."  "We've never been extravagant," I  said.  "Not in a way," she answered slowly,  "but in another way we have. I've  been doing a lot,, of thinking in the  last few days and I see now where  we've 'iad a great many unnecessary  things."  "Not for the last few weeks, anyhow," I said.  "Those don't count. But before that  I mean. For instance there's coffee.  It's a luxury." Why we spent-almost  thirty cents a week on that alone."  "1 know but���������������������������"  "There's another but. -There's no  nourishment, in coffee and wc can't  afford it." "We'll spend that money for  milk.- We must have good milk.and  you must get it for mc somewhere up  town. I don't like the looks of the milk  around here.-That-will be eight cents  a day."  "Better have two quarts," I suggested.   She thought a moment.  "Yos," sho agreed, "two quarts, because that's going to be the basis of  our food. That's a dollar twelve cents  a week."  She made up a litLle face at this, I  smiled grandly.  "Now for -breakfast we must have  oatmeal every morning. And we'll gel  it in bulk. I've priced it and it's only  a little over three cents a pound at  some of tho stores."  "And  tho  kind we've always had?"  "About twelve when it's done up in  packages. That's about the proportion  by which I expect to cut down everything. But you'll have to eat milk on  it instead of cream. Then we'll use  a lot of potatoes. They are very good  baked for breakfast.

Our  idea was to get a line  on   just  what  our  opportunities  Avere  down   here  and  to  nose  out   the   best  and cheapest places to buy. .The thing  that   impressed   us  right  off  was   the  big advantage Ave had in being within  easy access of the big provision centres.     We   Avere   within  ten  minutes'  walk of tho market,  Avithin  fifteen  of  the  Avater   front,   within   three  of   the  square  and  Avithin  twenty of the  department stores.   At all of these places  we found special bargains for the day  made to attract in toAvn those from a  distance.   If one rose early and reached them  about as soon as  they Avere  opened one could often buy things a-1-  most at cost and sometimes below cost.  For instance, Ave Avent up town to one  of the  largest but cheaper grade department   stores���������������������������we   had    heard   its  name  for  years  but' had  never  been  inside tbe building���������������������������and Ave found that  in their grocery department they had  special mark-downs every  day  in the  week for a limited supply of goods. We  bought   sugar  this   day   at   a   cent   a  pound less than the market price and  good beans for Iavo cents a quart less.  It sounds at-first like rather picayune  saving but it counts up at tbe end of  the   year.     Then   every   stall   in   the  market   had   its   bargain   of   meats���������������������������  wholesome   bits   but   unattractive   to  Lhe  careless  buyer.    We  bought'here  for fifty cents enough round steak for  several good meals of hash. We couldn't have bought it for less than a dollar in  the  suburbs  and  even  at that  wo   Avotildn't   have   known    anything  about it-for the store Avas'too far for  Ruth to make a personal visit and the  butcher    himself.   Avould . neA'er . have  mentioned such an odd end to a member of our neighborhood.  Wc enjoyed wandering around- this  big market Avhich in itself .was like a  trip to another land. Later* one of our  favorite amusements Avas to come  down here at night and Avatch the hustling crowds and the lights and the  pretty colors and confusion. It reminded Ruth, she said, of a country  fair. She always carried a pad and  penc'l and made notes of good places  to buy. I still have those and am referring io them now as I write this.  "Blanks," she writes (I omit the  name, "nice clean store with' pleasant  salesman.  ,Has good soup bones."  Again, "Blank and Blank...��������������������������� good  place to buy sausage."  Here, too, the market gardeners  gathered as early as four o'clock with  their vegetables fresh from the suburbs. They did mostly a Avholesale  business but if one UneAv Iioav it was  always possible to buy of them a cabbage or a head of lettuce or a few apples, or a peck of potatoes. They  were a genial, ruddy-cheeked lot and  after a while they came to know Ruth.  .Often_i_d go up there Avith her before  caloido-* aw'11    have    nourishing    puddings    of  of the wc-men  chiefs of the  iiu-n. gave it a  scnoi'c effect lhat made it as fascinat- . cornstarch  and   rice.

The other tenants, however, seldom  umhI the latter al .'ill except to hang  out their occasional washings. For  the lirsl month or so we saw little of  these peopl".

They Avere  not noisy, ami .-xivui f������������������>r a pick "uby  on the first lloor we hoard little of  them above the clamor of the street  We had four rooms. Thc front  we gave to the boy, the next  avo ourselves occupied, the third  used for a sitting and dining-  the. fourth .Avas a small  kitchen wilh running water. As compared with our house thc quarters at  first   seemed   cramped,' but   Ave  down our furniture to Avhat was  lutely essential, and as soon as  ceased making tho comparison we Avere surprised to lind hoAV  comfortable we Avere. In the dining-  for instance, we had nothing but  hairs, a folding table and _ a  closet for the dishe-*. Lounging chairs  and so forth we did away with altogether. Nor was there any need of  making- provision for possible guests.  Here throughout the whole house was  the greatest savine-, I took a fierce  pleasure at first in thus caring for my  own alone.  Tho  boy's room  contained   a  cot,  a  below,  room  room  room we  room.; while  cut  absol  our eyes  work and she Avith a basket on her arm  would buy for the day. It was always, "Good morning, miss," in answer to her smilo. They Avere respectful whether 1 was along or not.  But for that matter 1 never kneAV anyone who wasn't respectful to Ruth.  Thoy used to like to see her come, I  think, for sho stood out in rather  marked contrast to Lhc bowed figures  of   thc   othor Avomen.   Later   on   thoy  those about the square. A  be a good deal better'justified, in carrying- a revolver on this street than  he would in Little '.Italy,.' I never allowed Ruth to come down here alone.  From here we wandered buck and I  found a public-" playground and ���������������������������'bathhouse' by the Avater's edge. This attracted meat, once. 1 investigated  this and found it offered a fine opportunity for balhing. Little, dressing-  rooms were provided and for a penny  a 'man could get a clean towel and  for five cents a bathing suit. There  was no reason that 1 could see, however, why we shouldn't provide, our  own. It was within an easy ten minutes of the Hat and I saw right then  where I would get a ,dip every day.  lt would be a great thing for the boy,  too. 1 had always wanted him to  learn to swim.  On the way home avc passed through  Ihe Jewish quarter and 1 made a note  of the clothing offered for sale here.  The street was lined with second-hand  stores with coats and trousers swinging over the sideAvalk, and the Avindows Avere filled with odd lots of shoes.  Then too, there were the pawnshops.  I'd always thought of a pawnshop as  not being exactly respectable and had  the feeling that anyone who secured  anything from them Avas in a Avay  a receiver of stolen goods. But as I  passed them noAv, I received a new  impression. They seemed, down here,  as legitimate a business as the secondhand stores. The Avindows offered an  assortment of everything from watches  to banjoes and guns, but among them  I also noticed many carpenter's tools  and so forth. That might be a useful  thing to remember.  It Avas odd Iioav in a day our point of  vieAV had changed. If I had brought  Ruth and the boy doAvn through here  a month before, avc Avould all, I think,  have been more impressed by the congestion and the picturesque details of  the squalor than anything else. We  Avould have picked our Avay gingerly  and Ruth Avould have sighed often in  pity, and, comparing the lives of these  people Avith our OAvn, would probably  have made an extra generous contribution to the Salvation Army fhe next  time they came round. I'm not saying  noAv that, there isn't misery enough  there and in every like section of  every city, but I'll say that,in a great  many cases the ��������������������������� same people Avho  grovel in the filth here Avould grovel  in a different kind of filth if they had  ten thousand a year. At that you can't  blame them greatly for they don't  knoAv any better. But.Avhen you learn,  as I learned later, that some of the  proprietors of these second-hand  stores and fly-biOAvn butcher shops  have sons in Harvard and daughters  in Wellesloy, it makes you think." But  I'm" running ahead. .  -  The point Ava's that iioav that Ave felt  ourselves in a Avay one of these people  and viewed the street not from, the superior '"height- of native-born Americans but just as emigrants, neither the  soiled clothes of the inhabitants, nor  the cluttered .street SAvarming- 'with  laughing "youngsters impressed'us unfavorably at all. The impassive men  smoking cigarettes at their doors looked contented enough, tho Avomen Avere  not such as to excite pity, and if you  noticed,- there Avere as many children  around the local soda /water, fountains  as you'd find in a suburban drug store  They all-had clothes enough and appeared Avell fed and if some of them  looked pasty, the SAveet stuff in  stores was enough *  At any  rate Ave  man Avould ' nnd bloodshed amply attest the severity  of the struggle, in whieh great aid  Avas rendered the government by tho  missionaries.  The missionaries are sworn enemies-  of opium. 1 ndded, it was' the great  memorial signed by 1,3^51 .missionaries-  from seven countries Avhich, presented  in August,.-1900, drew forth in September the famous edict, some of it in  the very language of the -memorial.  Thc missionaries could be relied upon  to seek out the facts and.report thom  correctly, when the local officials,many  of whom, of-course, were .opium-smokers  themselves,  could   ue  their eyes shut as to i  those enga  the  to account for that,  came  back  to  our  fiat that day neither depressed nor  discouraged but decidedly in better  spirits. Of course Ave had seen only  the surface and 1 suspected that when  avo really got into theso lives we'd  find a bad condition of things, lt must  be so, 'for that Avas the burden of all  Ave read. But avc Avould have time  enough to worry about that Avhen we  discovered it for ourselves.  (To be continued).   FIGHTING OPIUM IN CHINA  PEACEFUL BUT PREPARED  The Swiss are supposed to 'be tho  most peace-loving people in the Occi:  dent. It is generally believed that-  Swit/.erland is thc heart of the nnti-  military sentiment of Europe. Yet the  SAviss arc thoroughly prepared ior Avar.

Nothing turns a man into a liar like  ihe black smoke, and it soon appeared  lhat many an official who could not or  wuuld not quit the pipe was concealing  his indulgence in order to keep hia office and  its    emoluments.      Suspicions  and denunciations became the order of  the  day.      Jt   was   found   necessary   to  clear the situation by establishing testing bureaus at Peking and certain pro-  A'incial capitals.     The suspect was ob- -  iiged to submit himself to a rigid test.  After   being  searched     for    concealed  i opium, he was locked up for three days  in   a  comfortable  apartment  and  supplied with good food, but no opium.    If  he held out, he was given a clean bill  of health, for no opium smoker can endure  three  days'  separation  from   his  pipe.     Tho strongest resolution" breaks  down under the intolerable craving that  recurs each day at tho hour sacred  to  thc  pipe.      Regardless  of  ruia  to  his  career, the secret smoker, be he even a  viceroy or a   minister, will,  on  bended  knees, Avith tears streaming down  his  cheeks,   beg   thc   attendant   to   relieve  his agonies by supplying him with tlio  materials for a soothing smoke.      Cer:  tain   highnesses,   piiucos   of  the  blood  even,   Avcrc   by   this     means    literally  ���������������������������''smoked out'-' and summarily cashiered.     Jn the army, prohibition has tooth  in it, for both officers and common soldiers have been  beheaded for obdurata  indulgence in the pipe.  But the vigor Avith Avhich the cam- -  paign has been carried on lias shown  magnificent results. A public opinion ,  against opium smoking has gradually  been developed. The British government has taken steps' to co-operate-  with the authorities in the matter of  importing opium. Accordingly, thc results in five years have surpassed what  thoy reasonably expected would take  twice as long.  "Tnink, of it!

The largest specimens  wore not over 14 hands, and the average height was 13.2A. We Avill not dig  deeply into the earlier horse of some  two million years previous, which had  five toes, and avus about the size of a  fox, but will start Avith lhe horse as'  knoAvn to the first men, at Avhich time j  he was, perhaps, the chief item of then-  food, ln those days the horse's head  Avas of abnormal size.  Late in the Bronze Age, or in the  Early Iron Age, the horse Avas domesticated, perhaps first by the Swiss Lake  dwellers. Later the Turko-Tartaric  tribe's domesticated the horse for its  milk, not having cows .'and goats', like  oilier early people.  There is abundant proof that tho  early horses were captured by the lasso  ancl belabored with sticks and cudgels, probably later Avhips, to coav and  subdue them.  Soon after being domesticated bridles  Avere used. The first bridles Avere of  itish, and were practically the same as  our halters of today, Avith reins attached.

ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  How Animals are Taught  Their Tricks  The training of animals, to teach  litem to perform all sorts of entertaining tricks, is a ra������������������k that requires perhaps a special talent on the pan of thc  Irainer, but above all demands patience  and a thoroughly methodical procedure.  Let us begin with the dog, and see how  ho ih taught his tricks. Wc commence  with tiie simplest, and-gradually work  up T.u the most complex ami npparenily  impossible, feats.  Thc first thing every dog must learn  is his name, "delect a short, sharp-  sounding name, und stick to it. Never  call liim anything else. Tf you have  several dogs, the name is taught on the  same principle. Divide their food, and  then, placing a piece on the ground.  ' call each in turn by his name and give  him the food when he comes for it. Send  the others back if they come forward  out of their turn. By and by they will  learn that a certain name is ahvays associated with a certain dog. Ramble  among the dogs, and call out one of  their names every now and then. If the  right dog comes to you, reward him with  a piece of cracker. Pay no attention  to the other dogs. They will learn very  soon; and the first great lesson���������������������������-de  pendenco and obedience���������������������������will have  been learned.  Ilavina* taught a dog to fetch and  carry���������������������������which hc will easily' learn���������������������������the  next thing is to teach him to go and  got any object called for. Place a glove  on the floor; then say to thc dog,  "Fetch the glove,*" putting the accent  on the last word. Then, when he has  done this .several times, place -a shoe  on thc lloor; and teach him to fetch this  in a similar manner. Now place both  ��������������������������� objects on the ground, and teach him to  fetch either one, as asked tor���������������������������rewarding him when he brings you the right  -one, aad rebuking him when he fetches  the wrong, which you take from hint  and replace, lie will soon learn to distinguish the articles, when a third may  bo substituted, and so on until a number are on tho .floor. You should then  go into tho next room, taking the dog  with you; and send him in to fetch any  article you mention. After a little time,  "he wilTbring you the right one every  time.  jSText, teach hini differences in color.  Place a red object on thc floor, and a  blue one beside it. Teach him to fetch  -vou the article called for as you did  before, being careful to reward him  every ' time "he brings you thc right  ��������������������������� handkerchief. Then put down a green  object, :i purple, a yellow one, and so  on; until finally the needed array of  colors can  be placed  for selection.  Next, he should be taught the articles  of furniture���������������������������table, chair, etc. lie must  go to each one as you call out its name.  Ptnallv, combine some of  the previous  commands:   "Place  the  glove   on  the  chair-!!   "'Get   the   handkerchief,   and  place'it  on  the  tabic,"  etc.    At  first  this  should  be  said   very  slowly,  and  only   half   thc   command   repeated   at  once:   but  the  halves  of  the  sentence  may be gradually blended together  , till vou can say it as you would to  "'individual; and the dog will obey  command. ���������������������������  To a certain extent, also, dogs may be  taught the lottersvof the alphabet, the  numbers of spots on cards, large dominoes, etc. Thc method of training  them is simply one of constant repetition. Cards bearing the letter or number arc placed in front of the dog, and  the letter or number is 'called out, aloud,  and at the same lime the dog is shown  which one it is. After several trials,  hc will select this one and disregard  tho others, when it is called for. This  once learned, the next letter is taught  in like manner, until a large number  arc recognized by thc dog, and he is  ^VrWrix^o a t-H*. n y-o f=lh em  Plants aie also to be selected in  lav manner, from a row placed  tabic, and so forth.  Ft  must  be  admitted,  however,   that  most   feats   of   this   character,  as  per  formed in public, are the result of some  trick   rather than any marvelously  training on  the part of the  cd to go to tho row of cards nearest  the trainer; then, if ho is inclined to  pick up one too near, a slight pull on  the string is given, pulling thc dog up  to the required number. The trainer  stands at a certain distance from thc  table in these tricks: if close to the  table, thc dog knows it means card one;  if farther away, card two,,and if still  further, card throe. I5y care in training, the dog can be taught to pick out  any required card, without in any way  knowing the number written upon it.  When the dog has been taught to pick  up any card by means of this code, the  Irainer may appear to mako it far moro  complicated by causing the dog to add,  subtract, multiply, divide, etc. All that  is necessary, of course, is that the performer himself should do thc sum, mentally note "the position of the card giving the answer, and indicate this card  to thc dog by means of some hidden  code.  ln the same way. horses can be made  lo stamp out any desired number, tell  thc date of a coin, etc., by simply going  on pawing the ground~imt.il the'trainer  gives them thc signal to stop by means  of some secret sign, unnoticed by tho  audienr-e.  As to thc animals whieh perform in  the circus, the elephant is among the  most popular, and it seems wonderful  that so unwieldy an animal can be made  to perform any tricks at 'all. How set  about training an animal of"this kind?  What is the first thing to be done? And  how1?  f.n compelling the elephant to perform, advantage is taken of the fact  that fhe feet of thc animal aro peculiarly sensitive and he dreads injury  to them. Many of his tricks-are based  -upon this principle. Thus, he is made  to, place one foot upon a low pedestal;  then the other foot is tapped gently,  and he raises .this and places it beside  the other���������������������������to get'it out ofvharm-'s way.'  The hind feet arc treated similarly, in  turn���������������������������the front feet being hit every  time they are placed*on the ground. In  this way all four feet are -finally placed  .upon the tub. The trick of inducing an  elephant to partake of a meal is very  simple. Animals will naturally, eat anything placed before them, and it is on  coast, and finally sold at Bahia, bringing the finder, it is said, $25,000. According to "estimates this crystal would  furnish fully 2,000,000 carats of aquamarines of various sizes.  Southern Trance produces and ships  annually cut flowers to thc value of  nearly $S.000,000.v A quarter of a ecu  tury ago Alphonse Ran* at St. 'Raphael  gave the industry at impetus which  has grown to its present proportions.  Every night iu winter a special train,  known as the cut-flower limited, leaves  Toulon for Paris, loaded with fragrant  blossoms.  Stenography was known as far back  as tho timo of the Greeks in Egypt, is  the conclusion reached by Professor  Friedrich Presigkc of the University of  Strassburg. fie believes that the  Greeks learned the art from the Egyptians, and bases his belief on papyri  dated A.D. .1:3.3, in which.claim is'inadc  that a system of shorthand is usod.  At the recent annual festival of the  Loudon Gregorian Choral Association  fifty combined church choirs sang music  from thc English service books of the  eighth to the fourteenth centuries at  St.  Paul's  Cathedral.  ly necessary to opeu a bottle of "pop"  iin-  auy  vour  -nt-wil  a simi-  <>n  Ihe  elaborate trainintr on tne parr or mv dog,  which would be necessary if these feats  were genuine���������������������������granting them to be pos-  . .-.iblo-itl-.all. _ A",'i.miiHor "f fjict' most  of thC'-e apparently marvelous feats arc  based on a very few cues, given to the  dog iit the appropriate time, to which  hc has been taught to respond in a  simple manner. A few examples will  make this clear.  Many of these fenls s*i*������������������"* performed  by moans of a cue word, in just the  same-kind of way as "mind-readers'"  ontertain and puzzle their audience. As  soon as this word ii given, it may bo in  tho (-oiive ol" it sentence, the dog know-.  {hat he is tn perforin a certain action.  .It ia not ncccnary for hi in to understand the whole of the sentence; only  one word in it. As soon as that word  is caught, thc action is performed. Each  action etui expends to a certain cue  word. Again, there is the method of  training by the use of the eyes. The  dog waichf- his master's eyes, and  when his master glances in any direction���������������������������-at a caul, for example���������������������������the dog  can follow hij glance, und pick out  the card in turn. Or the dog may be  told lo baik a crtain number, in which  case the d'������������������g watches his masterV face  closely, and simplv barks until the eye*.  or some movement, tell hini to stop. He  does not have to know that hc baiks  nine times. All he has to know i? that  he must go ou barking until he i? tnld  to stop by his master's signal; find  trainer is the one who does all  counting.  There are certain stage tricks which  depend very largely upon the dog's  incmorv. however���������������������������such as picking up a  numbered card, and the like. The cards  are arranged in a row, and the trainer  stands in front of tho row in which  the card rests. A string is attached to  the duff's neck.    First, thc dog is train-  tho  the  once or twice, and present it by hand,  when the. animal may be trusted to  find out. for himself how to get at its  contents. Tn all such cases, the essence  of thc training consists in infinite; patience, kindness, and constant repetition���������������������������showing the animal over and over  again how"a thing,is done���������������������������in precisely  tho same way���������������������������and then forcing him to  do itr himself. " ���������������������������      '  Lions iind tigers 'arc alwavs.'dangerous creatures to work with, and one can  neveT bo sure of them, even when trained. "No wild animal," says Mr. Bostock, "is ever tamed, only trained, and  the best training in the-world is nothing when once the animal feels inclined to give way to his natural savage  instincts."  "Tn time,-" continues Mr, Bostock,  "the frained animal becomes so accustomed to performing that when he sees  the paraphernalia of his performance he  knows exactly what is expected of liim.  and does it naturally and readily. The  successful performance of all trained  animals depends on this almost instinctive following of long-accustomed habit,  together with the pleasure the exercise  gives to animals habitually confined in  small  cages.    .    .    .  "Leopards, panthers, and jaguars are  all trained in much the same manner.  Mine. Morelli puts fhem through a  course of training very similar to that  given thc lion. They are taught lo respect and look for the trainer, aud have  instilled into them as much awe as is  "c re i���������������������������b i fill���������������������������i i-rt i ny=a ui m a 1���������������������������wh i oh=i s=n oi>  saying a great deal. . . .

Monkeys are known to be  capable of boing trained to a remarkable dogive.

As n matter of fact, although n few of them arc highly trainer! and intelligent, this is not the general rule.  A fow birds may be trained to perform simple tricks, but nor many.

THE FIRST ELECTRICALLY PROPELLED SHIP  For some years past electricity as a  method of propelling vessels has exercised it strange fascination.      Two energetic    Glasgow    electrical    engineers,  who had elaborated a system for achieving  this   ideal,   ordered  a   vessel   fifty  feet   in   length   and  certified "to   carry  fifty  passengers,   in   which 'they   have  installed  their plant.      rt comprises a  six-cylinder petrol    engine    developing"  forty-five    brake-horse   power,    which  drives an  alternating  current  dynamo,  while the propeller is coupled to an-alternating current motor, thc whole being*  controlled  by   switch    gear  either  from  the  bridge or the    engine-room.  Thc  vessel, with  its  novel   machinery,  possesses many points of interest    for  the engineer, and the experiments that  are  being   carried  out  with  the  craft  to   secure   some   really , valuable   data,  coucerning the practicability of "electricity "as  a-propelling  force  for vessels,  are being closely followed, and will constitute valuable material for discussion  by the learned societies when the time  comes to communicate the results of the  investigations.    The preliminary  trials,  however,   have   served  to  support  the'  theories advanced by-many enterprising  spirits-who have strenuously advocated  this system of propulsion.      That it is  no  passing* fancy is,borne out by the  fact that  in Germany and  the United  States  larger vessels  arc. in  course* of  construction  for    propulsion     by    the  same agency, though  the    methods "of  generating and applying thc'*energy differ in  detail.      It is  claimed that by  means of such a system certain much-  desired results impossible to be obtained with tlie best- tpyes of steam-engines  can  be  secured   with  the  highest  efficiency. ..   For instance, the steam  turbine   is "irreversible;   and   the'    petrol  motor requires a special attachment i'or  achieving  tin's  end,  whereas "with  thc  electric   system   the   propeller   can   be  switched   over   from -full - speed  ahead  to   full   speed   astern   in  a   matter   of  seconds without changing the. direction  of the rotation of the power-generator.  Jt is stated, also, that .electric propulsion is more economical than any other  system of driving a vessel, and certainly the' results so  far achieved appear  to bear out this contention.      On trial  the new boat attained a speed of nearly  eight and a half miles per hour.      The  present trend of thought in marine engineering  is  towards  the  evolution- of  .-in  electric system capable of fulfilling  the  difficult requirements of ship  propulsion, and the Clyde will occupy another  niche in  history  as  having  produced  the first electrically driven   ves  sel.  as  it did  the  first  steamship.  purpose. .

The statue  was divided into four parts���������������������������namely,  the cylindrical base, a vertical core, a  series of horizontal ribs coumieeting  the core with the external shell carrying the contour of the figure, and a  special limb to support tho 'uplifted  arm. Tho total weight of the statue is  eighty tons. The perfection of th..-  work has arotisod considerable com  Hient, the statue having the. appearance  of havjng been carved from a solid  block of stone.

Loth professors were equipped with  oxygen ma.iks. At a height of 10,.300  feet they were obliged to inhale oxygen at intervals of from one to two  minutes; otherwise they suffered from  headache, heart palpitations, and defective respiiation. As they reached  greater heights these symptoms increased, and oxygen had to bo more fro-  quentlv" inhaled. ""At~a " height _of--bo--  I ween "'J-") ,000 and 27,00(1 feet Fleming  fainted on removing the mask for an  instant.  The ell'ecl nf strong sunshine, intense  cold, and insnllii'.icney of air, gave the  face a terrifying aspect, but the aeronauts fell apathy rather than any severe pains. Another effect was a f("cling of cramp in the muscles.  The sun's rays acting in the rarefied  air produced a swelling and reddening  of tlie skin, accompanied by fever, and  these symptoms reached their height  forty-eight   hours   after  thc  descent.  Among tho experiments made was a  test, for" the presence of micro-organ-  ism*-. Three tests, thc highest made at  L3.000 feet, showed micro-organisms in  the small proportion of from 0.2 to 0.;3  a liter (1.7b" pints) of air. The fourth  test was made .-it an elevation of nearly  27,000 feet, and revealed no germs.  A WIFE WITHOUT A WORD  A London cab-washer, lately charged  with attempted suicide, has shown real  wit. aud originality. Ilia plea of defence was that he was "only protending to do it," in order to frighten his  wife into speaking to him, which she  had not done for seven days. lie was  discharged.  The peculiar ingenuity of the defence  was that it was such a pathetic one  that no magistrate possessing even tho  smallest semblance of a heart could  possibly convict on the face of it. Even  if false, .it was cunningly conceived,  for no better excuse, was ever heard  since Portia propounded her famous  plea to save the merchant's pound of  flesh, and made it quite clear that it  was not always necessary to pay one's  debts.

Tn tbe summer time things are not  so bad. The busy season is.on," for ono  thing,'and, the days are long and bright.  There scorns more chance for communication with each other, and the loneliness does uot, have time to assert itself  so niuch. - '  - But ihe - long winter evenings, the  days and days when - the housewife  cannot stir away- from the houso, the  storms and drifting, the hundred and  one barriers which keep her at home;  then it is that thc loneliness is apt to  come .over her. The modern farmer  is net like the so-called "gentleman  farmer." who has so much time at hia  disposal that he takes to farming as a  hobby and brings out hia bevy of servants from town, and has his house  .partiCiL-tiUtunusr-.-himsp.lf���������������������������'tnd keep lijm  from blue moulding. Tho average farmer is the good, wholesome kind who  is not afraid of work, and consequently  thinks his wife should not shirk her  duties. Sometimes she becomes lonesome, and it, is here that, the rural telephone comes in to tell its-story. Perhaps the housewife- has not seen anyone outside of her own household for a  month. There aro instances when it is  much more than a month. For example���������������������������there -was -a-crippled- woman-who  could not leave her chair. How was  sho to have communication with the  outside Avorldf Her. days were spent  in that chair, and she read the hours  away till her eyes ached and lior hoad  swifm. Tlie housekeeper was busy and  did not have much time to give lo her.  The farmer was, fortunately, one of  Ihe progressive kind who keep abreast  with the times. He had a telephone  nut in so his wife could talk to her  friends without moving from the chair.  The winter was spent pleasantly, there  were fewer headaches from excessive  icadinc, and the poor cripple was made  happy. '  The telephone has become almost a  necessity in the country. In the case  of a doctor's services being requirod,  in the case of lire, in the hundred ano  one instances when time is short and  necessity urgent, the only relief out of  the difficulty i.s the ever ready phone  which tolls the message and often saves  lives as well as time.  ���������������������������A dignified senator decided to follow  thc prevailing Washington .fashion and  learn golf. -   lt was a distressing time  for the caddy.

History of Earl Jr.'s Remarkable
Performances on the Grand Circuit
The Horseman in Saturday Sunset,
Vancouver, says: "Canada is the
home of the two greatest gray horses
living*   today. Both     are   United
States horses, and J3arl Jr. has received all his development and raced
entirely in that country. He is a
product of Illinois, while his speedy
rival was bred in Michigan, but has

Jr. came out as a three-year-old, and
in nine starts was six times first,
once second, onco divided second-

"In 1909 The Eel was the best of
the free-for-all bunch, ancl Earl Jr.,
after becoming the property of W. R.

campaign, and was never behind the
money. He won seven firsts, three
seconds and one   fourth, and took a

following two heats '"with final quarters in 29$ and 30 seconds respectively.  '        ������

Among his friends, many felt cheated  at not getting as much out of the revolution as fhey had hoped; many, although fhey had no -sympathy for the  old corrupt aristocracy, which had frivolously provoked the civil war, were too  much imbued with thc Latin spirit, too  faithful lo the old republican traditions, not to be disgusted by a personal  dictatorship that threatened permanence. Under a life-dictator, would not  the free civis Komanus become but a  slave, no better than the subject of an  Asiatic monarchy? From the time of  the battle of Thapsus, there were clear  indications that almost all of-Cacsar's  partisans who belonged to aristocratic  families were losing enthusiasm and  withdrawing their allegiance from'him.  The estrangement increased gradually,  as his government became more personal. By the beginning of the year  'I'J B.C., when the senate declared Caesar a demigod���������������������������decreeing a temple to  him as Jupiter Julius, and changing the  name of the month Quintilis to Julius���������������������������  aud when  tho law of the people made  thousand. Since then this labor law has  not been disturbed. It" is now being  revised and brought down to date.  Jn 1879, the law appropriating thirty  ! million francs as a subsidy to mountain railways���������������������������in reality the St. Gott-  hard enterprise���������������������������was submitted to the  people under a referendum and sustained by a majority of more than one hun-  I fired and sixty thousand. Au interesting example of the people's conservatism was the vote under a referendum  upon the " Epidemiengesctz" iu 1SS2���������������������������  a federal law to prevent epidemics. Because this law required too many inspectors, too much inquisition, too many  reports, and iu short was too bureaucratic, it was rejected by the people by  a vote ol more than three to one.

A senator,  rompilius Lena, came up to Brutus and  Cassius, aud said in a low voice: "May  you succeed; but act quickly!" Still  L'acsar did not appear. The sun was  high above the horizon, it was already  ten o'clock. The conspirators, seriously  alarmed, began to lose nerve and to be  exhausted by the tension. Surely everything was discovered!   Finally,'Cassius  him dictator for life, the break was  complete. A perpetual dictator, half-  deified���������������������������how did he differ, save in name,  from  an  Oriental sovereign'?  A bold and able man, an old-time  follower of Pompey, Caius Cassius, took  advantage of this psychologic moment.  ]t was he who conceived tho idea of  killing Caesar. To carry out a_conspiracy, there is necessary a leader' of note  ���������������������������of name and wide prestige and deep  sympathy among thc masses. Thc choice  of the astute Cassius fell upon Marcus  Brutus, who bore one ' of- the oldest  names of thc Roman nobility; a man of  neither great genius nor remarkable energy, but one to be relied upon, because  he had all the qualities���������������������������including thc  -prejudices and-tho defects���������������������������of-the old  aristocracy'���������������������������thc nobleman's, pride," thc  fanaticism of caste, the inflexible ideas  of honor. 7 '7  *,Cassius succeeded in'persuading this  ���������������������������little-intelligent     good    -fellow-1-'who  thought-himself -descended from- Lucius  Brutus, .tlie founder of the Republic���������������������������.  thal.only by.rescuing the "Republic from"  tyranny, could he show| himself worthy  of the ancestor who had founded it in  .defiance'of"��������������������������� a tyrant king.    ..  '"   Brutus  won  oyer,  Cassius set ��������������������������� about  finding other-support.    He easily gathered   three-score,  from   the "remains  of  thcold party of Pompey, and,even from  Caesar's party itself, conspicuous 'members, belonging to distinguished Roman  faniilics.  -Several of tho generals who  sar on the very point of postponing the  sitting, his illness was so troublesome.  In that crisis of danger to the conspiracy, Decimus found the ferocious courage to lure to slaughter with kindly discourse the friend who trusted him with  closed eyes; and Caesar came.  As the Dictator neared the Curia,  thc conspirators, already gathered in  the hall, saw Pompilius Lena approach  him and speak with him at some length  in an undertone. 11 was a terrible moment for Brutus and Cassius; Lena was  perhaps betraying them? Cassius almost lost his head; but Brutus, calmer,  had the presence of mind to scrutinize  thc face of Caesar.' That face, hollow-  checked, stern; worn with so many  thoughts and cares, had simply tho look  of a listener who gives heed to something that presses upon him who speaks.  Brutus made a sign to Cassius to cairn  himself.  Then tliere was another delay while  Caesar ��������������������������� stayed outside the Curia, performing, the sacrifices decreed by tho  political liturgy. Finally, hc entered  and sat down. Meanwhile, Trebonius  detained Anthony without, talking. Another of the conspirators, Tullius Chillier, drew near to thc Dictator, asking  the recall-of an exiled brother; the rest  closed around, as if to unite their prayers to Cimber's, until Caesar, oppressed  by so many upon him, rose, motioning  them to move away. Then Tubus caught  at his toga; it slid down, leaving his  bosom covered only.by the light tunic.  That was the signal. Casca struck the  first blow, but," trembling,- missed his  mark, wounding , Caesar-in the thigh.  The,victim turned upon him, aud crying  out, grasped his writing stylus. ���������������������������'Casca,  frightened, called to-his, brother, who  buried his dagger in Caesar's" side. Cassius wounded him -in the 'face,- Decimus in the belly; the others, all trying  to strike him, were so excited that they  wounded' each ��������������������������� other. -v Caesar fought  like a beast at bay;-and_ the "senators,  prey for an instant to a'slupoivof sudden fright, turned "and .fled, "shouting,  falling-over one another, trampling up-_  ou one another���������������������������even, Caesar's friends  ���������������������������even Anthony.

About its base are  figures representing Industry and'Pro-  gress; and a bronze child holds upward toward the heroic statue the  wreath of immortality. This is the  statue of Alfred Escher, the last boss  of Zurich, and almost the last of Switzerland. ,A  This Alfred Escher was the head of  the political machine that absolutely  governed the canton of Zurich, and,  through that, his political party in the  federal congress. Thus he almost rilled  the Swiss Confederation. He was a  man of great'ability, commanding personality, and kindly disposition, lie  came from "one o'f-the best families in  Switzerland. He was a very handsome  man, tall, slender, dignified, cordial. A  full, but short beard gave a touch of  the leonine to his powerful face, aiid a  pronounced baldness added to the wisdom of his splendid brow.  'This man was obsessed by a lust for  power, a mania for prominence.*'ille  wanted to be the first man in Zurich,  the first, if possible, in Switzerland.  And so he was for a; time Able, energetic, .determined, he also had a real  gift for i political organization and  management. So, under the old system,  which tbo referendum, the initiative,  and other progressive laws overthrew,  Alfred Escher built up a political machine perfect iu its smooth and effective operation.   -"  - The old systenrthat made this machine possible .was government by indirect elections and law-making 'in  which the people had no part."- The.peo-'  pie elected a numb^r-of representatives  called "Wahlmanner," which, freely  translated, means election men: These  representatives, then'-- elected, thc omnipotent, cantonal legislative--council.  This council, in-turn,-chose the executive officers���������������������������practically -all 'officers, in  fact."   ' -     .   -       - - * ...     -,  . With tliis system as a basis, Alfred  Escher constructed his wonderful' machine.' Nobody could have anything to  do with the government unless this ma-)  chine approved of him, "selected him.  In thc end, this came to mean that Alfred Escher himself and his few intimate counselors designated all officials  Not only are there a large number of  animals sired by prizewinners, but  prizewinners are found iu every-gencr-  lation as far back as the sixth, which  i was as far as the pedigrees were traced. If the Royal Show alone had been  I traced back a few years farther, large  numbers of prizewinners, sires of prizewinners would have been added to the  list. Such Shorthorn sires as Commander-in-Chief (2_-J5i), Tcleinachus  (27liO.'l), Duke of Aosta (2,S3,j(5), Sir  Arthur Ingram (3241)0), Beau Benedict  (42709), Royal Ingram (50374), Ingram's Fame (,*3302U), and others, were  so prepotent that their offspring, like  themselves, were placed af the head of  the list at many shows.  The great show bull, Count Lavender  (GOo+.'i), won fifty-two first and championship prizes, and it is a significant  fact that this bull appears'in no less  than twenty of the pedigrees of prizewinners here considered.  Surely thc foregoing is sufficient to  prove that prizewinners are exerting a  very potent influence on the breed, and  that prizewinning stock, contrary to the  belief of many,, is producing each year  prizewinners having just jas high a degree of individual excellence as their  sires and dams. And, due to the laws  of variation, - improvement . is being  made, and the individuals are becoming  each year nearer perfection.  What has been shown by the fore-  goiiig���������������������������is also good argument for inheritance, or, as some put it, that like tends  to produce like. Because these,rseveral  individuals-were animals possessing a  high degree of excellence, and these  same animals transmitted this excellence to their offspring, which must  have been, the, case *or the offspring  would not have been able to win premier honors iat the 'large exhibitions, it  seems to point out that'.like does tend  to produce like; in fact, if like di<  not produce like, the beneficial  effect of prizewinners would amount to  very little. . Breeders who argue that  prizewinners 7lo not produce prizewinners are arguing against their own actions, for- they are almost invariably  trying to.improve their hoards by breeding to the best,individual bulls; and if  our judges are competent���������������������������and we have  no reason to doubt that "they are) .the  best individuals are those that are  carrying off the silverware and rosettes  from the large shows.  What has been., found true of the  Shorthorn brpod' is doubtless true of all  the breeds of. live stock, aiid goes to  prove that, as -a rule; the best individuals of the.'breed are the animals to  uso in breeding,if the top notch of quality and conformation is desired.'       >  .

NOT EASY TO CHANGS  Jn order to change the Swiss constitution, at least fifty thousand of Switzerland's voters must sign a petition.  That is to say, about six per cent, of  Swiss voters can demand that a chango  in their constitution shall be submitted  to all Swiss voters. Jn the case of the  referendum, only thirty thousand voters  need sign thc petition, in order to have  any law that Switzerland's national  congress has passed, referred to all  Swiss .voters. That is to say, about  throe and one-half per cent, of the  voters of Switzerland can have any law  submitted to the people.

Throughout tho city it was continually  whispered that plots against Caesar  were being laid; to retreat would be  dangerous; they must go forward! Cassius ahvays managed fo reunite thc  -threads- of-his-enterprise "tit the-very  moment when they seemed almost hopelessly broken. When, however, it became known that Caesar would convoke  thc senate for tho morning of the 15th  of March in the Curia of Pompey, .and  that on the ISth ho would depart for  Persia, the conspirators were instantly  of one mind: Caesar must be killed in  (lie senate, on the morning of the loth  of March!

So powerful was  it and so'acknowledge-was its power  that no one was brave enough to Combat it, even to question it���������������������������no ono until  there- arose a brilliant and 'daring  young lawyer, a certain Dr. Locher,  who, taking advantage of f a small incident, used it as a stone fo slay, this  Swiss Goliath, the Escher machine of  Zurich.

This  statement is quile unfounded, for timo  and again a champion has sired a champion, and very often, indeed, has a first-  prize individual been thc parent of  first-prize winners, and quite frequently  of champions.

Shorthorn breed for a number of years  at three of tho world's largest shows,  viz., Toronto Industrial, Chicago International, and thc Koyal Show, in England.'   Among these, it was found that  no  less  than  forty-two  animals  which  had themselves won championships and  first prizes had been sired by winners  of cither first or championship prizes at  these same exhibitions.    Knowing that  these are only a few of the many animals  shown   which    trace    directly  to  champions   or   first-prize   winners,   and  considering that these three shows are  only a very small    proportion    of the  great exhibitions of thc world, we can  easily realize the importance of a first-  class show stock to thc breed.   A large  num ber   of  prizewinners  at   the   othor  large shows, as the State Fairs, Highland  Society,  Winnipeg, and  hundreds  of  others,   doubtless  trace  directly   to  prizewinners   at   these   or   some   othor  show.    But, leaving  these  out of consideration   altogether,    when    we  find  nearly fifty animals prizewinners at one  of three shows at some time during the  last 20 years, and all  these are chain-  ���������������������������pov  headlights which illuminate,-the roadway for_ several hundred feet in -advance of the car, motoring would be  only a  daylight pleasure.  Kerosene side-lights serve as-effect-,  ual signals  to  other vehicles and    to  pedestrians, but they are not sufficiently bright for  the"  illumination   of'tlie  roadway,  and. consequently   they   are  practically useless for country driving  and for travelling through streets not  lighted by other means.      But it was  this failure  of the kerosene lamps to  meet  tho   need   of  the  situation   that  brought about the wonderful  develop-  jiie iLt.-in--ac&tylcn e-=.systems,-a n d���������������������������toil ay^  wc find headlights operated by this gas  wliich arc so powerful that sign posts  may   be   read   easily   several   hundred  yards   in   advance   of   thc   car.      But  for such long-range  reading,  the lamp  brackets  may need  to  be  bent up  in.  order   that   thc   rays   may   be   thrown  ahead   in   a  straight   line,   instead   of  down on the road in  front of fho car,  as   is   often _ the   case.    A   satisfactory method of adjusting the lights is  to-set- one- bracket -so -that���������������������������tho  rays  from its lamp will be concentrated at  a point about fifty or one hundred feet  in   front  of  the  car,   while  the  other  bracket  should   be  tilled  so   that  the  light   will   extend   in   a   more   nearly  horizontal direction and illuminate the  roadway   at   a   greater   distance   from  the  car.      In   this  case,   the  brackets  should   be   turned   in .slightly  so  that  the middle of the roadway will  bo illuminated  by  the  centre  of  the rays  of light.     If desired, the brackets may  be  turned so  that the  rays  from   the  two lamps will be concentrated at the,  same   point,   or   they   may   be   spread  apart slightly so that thc sides of the  roadway   will   bo   illuminated,   instead  of  a  long  pathway  directly   in   front  of the car.

PERMANENT ROAD WORK  "Good Roads'' Taylor, Minister of  Public Works, has been chosen by ac-.  clamation  to: again represent Revelstoke in   the   Provincial legislature.  The selection of Mr. Taylor will give  general    satisfaction   throughout tbe  Province.   The permaivjnt road work,  inaugurated   by   him,   and   %he able"  manner in which   he has carried out  the work of his department have won  for him the pseudonym "Good Roads'  Taylor. Ancl it is one that will stick.  The work of the present year 'to be  done in the Okanagan is but a sample  of the character of the work that is  being pushed in every part of tbe  Province. When Mr. Taylor gives his  word that a certain thing will be  done, he does not put up with any  sidestepping���������������������������the work, has to . be  done,, and done right. In the Okanagan, Superintendent of Roads Lang  has been up against a difficult proposition for some years. The scope of  territory looked after by him has  been more than one man could care  for and depend upon'the railroad and  hoat service. The Department is  this year providing the road superin-  tendens with a motor car in which  he will cover the district. The work  planned for the Enderhy-Mara district is of a (yery permanent character. Two rock crushing outfits are to  be operated by the Government in tbe  Okanagan. One of these will provide  material for the -".outhern end and  the other will operate in and around  Enderby district. The roads will be  bedded with crushed rock and gravel.  The new road to be cut into Trinity  Valley, giving an outlet this way,  will be started as soon as the snow  is gone. A new bridge will be built  at Mara, crossing the Shuswap river,  and another span will be added to  the Enderby bridge. The work to be  put on the Mabel Lake road will be  of a permanent nature. Gravel-will  be laid on the road where it can be  conveniently had, and where the rock  crusher can ;be operated more economically, crushed rock will be used.  The demand is to be made by Mr.-  Lang- for _ the most up-to-date and  permanent road work, and the methods to be adopted . are on scientific  road-making lines.  KILLING   DEER   OUT OF SEASON  Deputy Game Warden Blurton and  Constable Price have recently met  with considerable difficulty in bringing to justice several local Indians  caught with deer meat in their pos-  s'ssion and held to answer before  the magistrates. Mr. Blurton recently discovered the carcases -of 13  female deer hidden in the bush. The  officers also learned of-many other  cases where deer have been killed by  the Indians, and have riaced them to  the Indian shacks and there found tbe  carcases or parts of them. In one  case the Indian was tried and convicted and a fine of $2.50 imposed, and  this fine was paid over to another  Indian_who-acted_as_interpr_eter. In  his efforts to track the guilty Indians  Mr. Blurton has spent days and  nights tramping the nills through the  deep snow, only to be laughed at for  his pains by the Indians who do not  fear the "arm of the law."  Speaking of these arrests to the  Vancouver Province, Game Warden  Bryan Williams stated that tho Okanagan district, "being""an" organized  district, the Indians here have no  right to kill female deer nt this time  of year, when it is important to protect the fawns. In thc present cases  there were indications that the deer  had been killed for the purpose of  getting the unborn fawns, which are  said to be considered a great delicacy  by the Indians. The game warden  stated that there is also a nefarious  trade attempted by selling the unborn'  fawns to the Chinese, who pickle  them in alcohol and later drink the  fluid, which is supposed to have great  virtue and is eagerly sought by the  Chinese."  The Indians are very sly in their  killing of these deer. The bucks go  out and do the shooting and come  trailing home with nothing "bagged."  The next day the squaws go into the  woods "bark gathering" and come  out with a deer or two, which are  carried to a convenient spot where a  sleigh is in waiting and there the  carcases are loaded into thc sleigh  and used as seats for the occupants  on the homeward drive.
