Excavation work will be commenced  this week for the St. fleorge's church  vicarage, to be erected on the corner  just back of the church, where the  Enderby tennis court has hitherto  been located.' The building will be of  brick,' and fitted with every modern  convenience.  An important business meeting of  the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary will  be held in the City Hall to-morrow  (Friday) afternoon at 4 o'clock.

Francis has been engaged  to conduct the auction sale which Mr.  Robt. Waddell will put on in about  two weeks. Mr. Francis will come  from the coast to handle the sale. It  is expected the sale will occupy two  or three days. A live pigeon shoot  is mentioned in connection with the  last day's programme. Watch for  date.  Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Dugdale came  in from the Old Country this week.  Mr. Dugdale left Enderby for Bourn-  mouth, Eng.', last winter.

Watt & Company  CHAPTER IX.���������������������������Continued  Tlie fear of an enemy silently stalking* him had filled his clays with terror.  Xow that he regarded death as certain,  his cowardice dropped away like a discarded cloak.  ������������������ "I don't ask much," he said simp'.y;  '���������������������������only, for God's sake, kill me here!  Don't surrender me to the government!  At least, let the other fellows know  that I was dead before their plans were  betrayed."  "I told you," said Saxon in a dull  voice, "that I had no designs on yo'u.  I meant it! I told you I had forgotten.  I meant it!"  As he spoke, Saxon's head dropped  forward on his chest, and he stood  breathing heavily. The moonlight,  falling full on his face, showed such  heart-broken misery as might have  belonged to the visage of some unresting ghost in an Inferno. His eyes  were the eyes of utter despair, and  the hand that held the pistol hung  limp at his side, the weapon lying loose  in its palm. Rodman stood wide-eyed  before him. Had he already been killed and returned to life, he could hardly  have been more astonished, and, when  Saxon at last raised his face and spoke  again, the astonishment was greater  than ever.  "Take your gun," said the painter,  * - r'������������������..-:"*ing his hand slowly, and presenting the weapon stock first. "If you  want to kill me���������������������������go ahead."  Rodman,  for  an   instant,   suspected  some subterfuge; then, looking into the  eyes before h'jm, he realized that they  were  too  surcharged  with sadness  to  harbor either vengeance or treachery.  He could not fathom the meaning, but  he realized that :.'rom this man he had  nothing   to  fear.    He   slowly  reached  out his hand, and, when he had taken  thc pistol, he put it away in his pocket.  Saxon laughed bitterly.,  "So that's thc- answer!"'he muttered.  Without a word, the painter- turned,  and  walked  toward  the  front  of  the  cathedral;   without   a  word,   Rodman  fell  in   by  his  side,  and  walked with  him.    When  they  had gone a square,  Saxon was again himself except for a  stonily set face.   Rodman was wonder-  ing.how to apologize.   Carter had never  been a liar.    If Carter said he had no  thought of vengeance it was true, and  Rodman   had   insulted   him   with   the  surmise.  Finally,  the thin man inquired in a  ."different and much softer voice;-    - -  "What are you doing in Puerto Frio?"  "It lias nothing to "do with revenge  or punishment," replied Saxon,  "and I  don't vwant to hear intrigues."  A'quarter   of   an   hour   later,   they  ' reached  the main  plaza, Rodman still  mystified and Saxon walking on aimlessly at his side.    I-Ie had no definite  destination.    Nothing  mattered.  After  a longsilence, Rodman demanded:  "Aren't you taking a chance���������������������������risking  it in Puerto Frio?" ���������������������������  "I don't know."  There was another pause, broken at  last by Rodman:  "Take this from me. Get at once in  touch with the American Legation, and  keep in touch! Stand on your good  behaviour. You may get away with  it." He interrupted himself abruptly  with the question: "Have you been  keeping posted on South American  affairs of late?" a  "I don't know who is President," replied Saxon.  "Well, I'll tip you off.

Time  is  a great re-  Palace, I have no doubt, it will be explained."  "I demand that we be taken first  to the United States Legation," insisted Rodman.  The oflicer regretfully shook his  head. "Doubtless, senors," he assured  them, "your legation will be immediately communicated with. I have no  authority to deviate from my orders.'  storer and so many similar affairs have  intervened that you arc probably forgotten. But, if I were you, I would get  through my affairs and���������������������������beat it. It's  a wise boy that is not where he is,  when he's wanted by some one he doesn't want."  Saxon made no reply.  "Say," commented the irrepressible  revolutionist, as they strolled into the  arcade at the side of the main "plaza,  "you've changed a bit in appearance.  You're a bit heavier, aren't you?"  Saxon did not seem to hear.  Thc plaza was gay wilh tbo life of  the miniature capital. Oliicers strolled  about in their brightest uniforms,  blowing cigarette smoke and ogling  the senorilas, who looked shyly back  from under their mantillas.  From the band-stand blared the national air. Natives and foreigners  sauntered idly, taking their pleasure  with languid ease. But Rodman kept  to the less conspicuous sides and the  shadows of the arcade, and Saxon  walked with him, unseeing and deeply  miserable.  Between the electric glare of the  plaza and the first arc-light of the  Calle Bolivar is a corner comparatively  dark. Here, the men met two army  oliicers in conversation. Near them  waited a handful of soldiers. As the  Americans came abreast, an oflicer fell  in on either side of them.  "Pardon, senors," said one, speaking  in Spanish with'"'extreme politeness,  "but it i.s necessary that we ask you to  accompany us to the Palace."  The soldiers had fallen in behind, following. Now, they separated, and  some of them came to the front, so that  the two men found themselves walking  in a hollow square.    Rodman halted,  "What does this signify?" he demanded in a voice of truculent indignation. "We are citizens of the United  States!"  "I exceedingly deplore the inconvenience," declared the oflicer.   "At the  CHAPTER X.  At the Palace, the A.mericans were  separated. Saxon was ushered into  a small room, barely furnished. Its  one window was barred, and the one  door that penetrated its thick wall was  locked from the outside. It seemed  incredible that under such stimulus  his memory should remain torpid. This  must bo an absolute echo from the  past���������������������������yet, he could not remember. But  Rodman remembered���������������������������and evidently  the government remembered.  About the same hour, Mr. Partridge  called at the "Frances y Ingles," where  he learned that Senor Saxon had gone  out. I-Ie called again late in the evening    Saxon had not returned.  The following morning, the Hon.  Charles Pendleton, Envoy Extraordinary and 'Minister Plenipotentiary of the  United States of America, read Saxon's  letters of introduction. The letters  sufficiently established the standing of  the artist to assure him his minister's  interest. Partridge was dispatched to  tho hotel to bring the traveller to the  legation. Partridge came back within  tho hour, greatly perturbed. Having  found that Saxon had not returned  during the night, and knowing the customs of the country, he had spent a  half-hour in investigating by channels  known to himself. He learned, at the  end of much questioning and cross-  questioning, that the senor, together  with another gentleman evidently also  an Americano del Nordo, had passed  the street-door late in- the evening,  with military escort.-  Mr. "Partridge hastened to his legation at a rate of speed subversive of all  Puerto Frio traditions. In Puerto Frio,  haste is held to be an affront to dignity, and dignity is esteemed.  The Hon. Charles Pendleton listened  to his subordinate's report with rising  cholei'.  His diplomacy was of the aggressive type, and his first duty was that  of making the protecting pinions - of  the spread eagle stretch wide- enoujyh  to reach every one of those entitled to  its guardianship. -.   - ���������������������������  Saxon and Rodman had the night before entered the frowning walls of the  Palace through a narrow door at the  side. The- American minister now  passed hastily between files of presented arms. Inside, he learned that his  excellency, el Presidente, had not yet  finished his breakfast, but' earnestly  desired his excellency, el ministro, to  share with him an alligator pear and  cup of coffee.  In tlie suave presence of the dictator, the minister's choler did not cease.  Rather, it smoldered while he listened  perfunctorily to flattering banalities.  He had struck through intermediary  stages; had passed over the heads of  departments and holders of portfolios,  to issue his ultimatum to the .chief  executive. Yet, in approaching his  subject, he matched the other's suavity  with a pleasantness that the dictator  distrusted. The dark face of the autocrat became grave until, when Mr.  Pendleton reached the issue, it was  deeply sympathetic, surprised and attentive.  "I   am   informed   that   some   one���������������������������1  can not yet say who���������������������������wearing your  excellency's uniform, seized an American citizen of prominence on the  streets of Puerto Frio last evening."  The President was shocked and incredulous.  "impossible!" hc exclaimed with deep  distress;   then,   again:     "Impossible!''  Prom the diplomat's eloquent sketching of the situation, it might have been  gathered that the United States war  .department stood "anxiously -watching  for such affronts, and that the United  States war department would be very  petulant, when notification of the incident reached it. Mr. Pendleton further  assured his excellency, cl Presidente,  that it would bo his Immediate care to  see that such notification had the right  of way over the Panama cable.  "I have information," began the dictator slowly, "that two men suspected  of connection with an insurgent junta  have been arrested. As to their nationality, f have received no details. Certainly, no American citizen has been  seized with my consent. The affair  appears grave, and shall be investigated. Your excellency realizes the necessity of vigilance. The revolutionist  forfeits his nationality." Ho spread  his hands in a vague gesture.  "Mr. Robert Saxon," retorted the  minister, "should hardly be a suspect!  The fact that he was not a guest at  my legation, and for the time a member of my family, was due only to the  accident of my absence from the city  oh his arrival yesterday."  With sudden bustle, the machinery  of the Palace was set in motion. Of  a surety, some one had blundered, and  "some one" should be condignly punished!  It was a very irate gentleman, flushed from unwonted exertion in the  tropics.Who was ushered at last into  Saxon's room. It was a very much  puzzled and interested gentleman who  stood contemplatively studying the  direct eyes of the prisoner a half-hour  later.  Saxon had told Mr. Pendleton the  entire narrative of his quest of himself, ancl, as he fold it, the older man  listened without a question or interruption, standing with his eyes fixed  on the teller, twisting an unlighted  cigar in his fingers.  "Mr. Saxon, I am here to safeguard  the interests of Americans. Our government does not, however, undertake  to chaperon filibustering expeditions,  lt becomes necessary to question you."  There followed a brief catechism in  which the replies seemed to satisfy the  questioner. When he came to the incident of his meeting with Rodman,  Saxon paused.  "As to Rodman," he said, "who was  arrested with me, 1 have no knowledge  that would be evidence.   I know nothing except from the hearsay of his recital."  Mr. Pendleton raised his hand.  "I   am   only  questioning  you   as  to  yourself.     This   other   man,   Rodman,  will have to prove his innocence.    I'm  afraid I can't help him.    According to  their own admissions, they know nothing against you beyond the fact that  you were seen with him last night." -  Saxon came to his feet,  bewildered.  "But  the������������������previous  matter���������������������������the embezzlement?" he demanded. "Of course,  I had nothing to do with  this affair.  It  was   that  other  i'or   which   I  was  arrested."  The envoy.-daughed.  "You  punched  cows  six  years  ago.  You cartooned five years ago, and you  have painted landscapes ever since.   I  presume, -if- it became necessary, you  could prove an alibi for almost seven  years?"  Saxon nodded. I-Ie fancied he saw  the drift of the argument. It was to  culminate in the same counsel that  Steele had given. I-Ie would be advised to allow the time to reach the period  when his other self should be legally  dead. t  Mr. Pendleton paced the floor for  a space, then came back and halted  before the cot, on the edge of which  the prisoner sat.  "I have been at this post only two  years, but I am, of course, familiar  with the facts of that case." He paused, then added with irrelevance: "It  may be that you bear a somewhat  striking resemblance to this particularly disreputable conspirator. Of course,  that's possible, but���������������������������"      , . ,-  .   "But .highly. improbable."   admitted  Saxon.   \ , " "  "Oh. you are not that man! That  can be mathematically-demonstrated,"  asserted Mr, , Pendleton suddenly. "I  was only reflecting'on the fallibility of  circumstantial evidence. I am a lawyer,  and once, as district attorney, I convicted a man on such evidence. He's  in the penitentiary now, and it set me  wondering if���������������������������"  But Saxon stood dumfounded, vainly  trying to speak. His face was white,  and he had seized the envoy by the  arm with a grip too emphatic for diplomatic etiquette.  "Do you know what you are saying?"  he shouted. "I am not the man! How  do you know that?"  "I know it," responded Mr. Pendleton  calmly, "because the Jncident of the  firing-squad occurred five years ago���������������������������  and the embezzlement only four years  back."  Saxon remained staring in wide-  eyed amazement. I-Ie felt his knees  grow suddenly weak, and the blood  cascaded through the arteries of his  temples. Then hc turned, and, dropping again to the edge of the cot, covered _ his-face _with -his-hands   felt it was not quite the masterpiece! ing its  summit  against the  hot blue  the occasion demanded.   It read: j overhead,   and  saw   only   a   sleeping  "You see," explained Mr. Pendleton,  "there is only one ground upon which  any charge against you can be reinstated���������������������������an impeachment of your  evidence as to how you have put in the  past five years. And," he smilingly  summarized, "since the case comes before this court solely on your self-  accusation, since you have journeyed  some thousands of miles merely to  prosecute yourself, T regard your evidence-on that point as conclusive."  Later, tho envoy, with his arm  through that of the liberated prisoner,  walked out past deferential sentries  into the Plaza.  "And, now, thc blockade being run,"  he amiably Inquired, "what are your  plans?"  "Plans!" exclaimed Saxon scornfully; "plans, sir, is plural. 1 have only  one: to catch the next boat that's  headed north. Why," he explained,  "there is soon going to be .an autumn  in the Kentucky hills with all the  woods a blaze of color."  The minister's eyes took on a touch  of nostalgia.  "I guess there's nothing much the  matter with the autumn in Indiana,  either," he aflirmed.  They walked on together at a slow  gait, for the morning sun was already  beginning to beat down as if it were  focused   through  a  burning-glass.  "And say," suggested Mr. Pendleton  at last, "if you ever get to a certain  town in Indiana called Vevay, which is  on some of the more complete maps,  walk around for me ancl look at the  Davis building. You won't see much���������������������������  only a hideous two-story brick, with a  metal roof and dusty windows, but my  'shingle used to hang out there���������������������������and  it's in God's country!"  Before they had reached the legation,  Saxon remembered that his plans involved another detail, and with some  secrecy he sought the cable office, and  wrote a message to Duska. Its composition consumed a half-hour, yet he  "Arrived yesterday. Slept in jail  Out today.   Am not he."  The operator, counting off the length  with his pencil, glanced up* thoughtfully.  "It costs a dollar a word, sir," he  vouchsafed.  But Saxon nodded affluently, for he  knew that the City of Rio sailed north  that afternoon, and he did not know  that her sister ship, the Amazon, with  Duska on board, was at this moment  nosing its way south through the tepid  water���������������������������only twenty-four hours away.  As the City of Rio wound up  her rusty anchor that afternoon,  Saxon was jubilantly smoking his pipe  by the rail. "  In thc launch just putting off from  the steamer's side stood the Hon. Mr.  Pendleton, waving his hat, ancl Jimmy  Partridge wildly shouting, "Give my  regards to Broadway!" The minister's  flag, which had floated over the steamer while the great personage was on  board,- was just dipping, and Saxon's  hand was still cramped under the  homesick pressure of the farewell  grips.  Suddenly, the traveller had a feeling  of a presence at his elbow, and, turning, was profoundly astonished to behold again the complacent visage of  Mr. Rodman. v,  "You see, I still appear to be among  those present," announced the filibuster, with some breeziness of manner.  "It's true that I "stand before you, 'my  sweet young face still haggard with  the anguish it -has worn,' but I'm  here, which is, after all,' the salient  feature of the situation. Say, what did  you do to them?"  "I?" questioned Saxon. "I did nothing. The minister came and took me  out of their Bastile."  "Well, say. he must have thrown an  awful scare into them." Mr. Rodman  thoughtfully stroked his chin with a  thin forefinger. "He must have intimidated them unmercifully and brutally. They stampeded into my wing  of ihe Palace, and set me free as  though they were afraid I had tho  yellow-fever. 'Wide they flung the  ���������������������������massive portals'���������������������������all that sort of thing.  Now, what puzzles me is, why did they  do it? They had the goods on me���������������������������  almost. However, I'm entirely pleased." Rodman laughed as he lighted, a  cigar, and waved- his hand with mock  sentiment toward the shore. - "And 1  bad put the rifles through, too," he  declared, jubilantly. "I'd turned them  over rto the insurrecto gentleman in  good order. Did they clamor for your  blood about the $200,000?"  "Rodman," - said Saxon slowly, "I  hardly expect you to believe it, but  that was a case of mistaken identity.  I'm not the man' you think. I was  never in Puerto Frio, before."-" -"'--"  - Rodman let the cigar drop from his  astonished lip's, and "' caught "-"wildly  after it as it fell overboard;     ., '  -  "What?" he demanded7 at last.-:  "How's that?" '     -  "It was a man who. looked like "me,"  elucidated Saxon.  "You are damned right���������������������������he looked  like you!" Rodman halted, amazed  into silence. At last, he said: "Well,  you have got the clear nerve! What's  the idea, anyhow. Don't' you trust  me?"' \ -  The artist laughed.-  "I hardly thought you would credit  it,"  he  said.    "After  all,  that  doesn't  make much .difference.    The point is,  my dear boy, I know it.".  But Rodman's debonair smile soon  returned. He. held up his hand with  a gesture of acceptance.  "Wh t. difference does it make? A  gentleman likes to change hij linen���������������������������  why not his personality? I dare say  it's a very decent impulse." ���������������������������<  For a mom nt, Saxon looked up with  an instinctive resentment for ��������������������������� the  politely phrased skepticism of the  other.    Then,  his displeasure changed  tropical   background  for  the   indolent  base.  "Well���������������������������" Rodman dropped his voice  yet lower���������������������������"if you had a pair of field  glasses and studied the heights, you  could see a few black specks that are  now disused guns. By day after tomorrow, or, at tho latest, ono day  more, each of those specks will be a  crater, and the town will be under a  shower, of solid shot. There's some  class to work that can turn as mild a  mannered hill as that into a volcano  ���������������������������no?"  Saxon stood gazing with fascination.  "Meanwhile," he heard tho other  comment, "shipboard is good enough  for yours truly���������������������������because, as you know,  shipboard is neutral ground for political offenders���������������������������and the noxt gentleman who occupies the Palace will be  a friend who owes me something."  to a smiIc. Enr~"h"aa,r~for a moment,  felt the same doubt when Mr. Pendleton brought his verdict. Rodman had  none of the facts, and a glance at the  satirical features showed that it would  be impossible for this unimaginative  adventurer to construe premises to a  seemingly impossible conclusion. He  was a. materialist, and dealt in palpable appearances. After all, what did  it matter? Ho had mado his effort,  and-would,-as-he had-promised -Duska,  vex his Sphinx with no more questioning. He would go on as Robert Saxon,  feeling that he had done his best with  conscientious thoroughness, It was,  after all only cutting the Gordian knot  in his life. After a moment, hc looked  up.  "Which way do you go?" he inquired.  The other man shrugged his shoulders.  "I go back to Puerto Frio���������������������������after the  blow-orf,"  "After the blow-orf?" Saxon repeated,  in   interrogation.  "Sure!" Rodman stretched his thin  hand shoreward, and dropped his  voice. "Take a good look at yon fair  city," he laughed, "for, before you happen back here again, it may have  fallen under fire and sword."  The soldier of fortune spoke with  some of the pride that comes to the  man who feels he is playing a large  game, whether it be a game of construction or destruction, or whether,  as is oftener the case, it be both destruction  and construction.  The painter obediently looked back  at the adobe walls and cross-tipped  towers.  "Puerto Frio has been very good to  me," he said, in an enigmatical voice.  But Rodman was thinking too much  of his own plans to notice the comment.  "Do you see the mountain at the  back of the city?" he suddenly demanded. "That's San Francisco. Do  you see anything queer about it?"  The artist looked at the peak rear-  CHAPTER XI.  Saxon denied himself the lure of the  deck that evening. Though he would  probably be close behind his messages  in arriving, he was devoting himself  to a full narration embodied in a love-  tropical panorama stretching at its  ness of the dining saloon, with such  letter.  I-Ie bent over the task in the close-  absorption that he did not rise to investigate even when, with a protract- .  ed shrieking of whistles, there came  sudden cessation from the jarring  throb of screw-shaft and engines.  Then, the City of Rio camo to a full-  stop. He vaguely presumed that another important port had been reached, and did not suspect that the vessel lay out of sight of land, and that  a second steamer, . southbound, had  halted on signal, and lay likewise motionless, her lights glittering^ just off  the starboard bow.  When,   almost   two   hours   later,   he  had folded the last of many pages, and  gone on deck for a breath before turning  in,   the   engines  were  once  more  noisily   throbbing,   and   he   saw   only  the bulk and lights of another vessel  pointed down-world under steam.  - But, as usual, Rodman," gentleman of  multifarious   devices,," was������������������not   letting  facts  escape  him. . Indeed,  it.was  at  Rodman's    instance    that    two   "mail  ships, thc City of Rio and the. Amazon, ���������������������������  had marked  time for an - hour and  a  half.    In tho brewing of affairs, Rod- "  man was just now an important personage, and the commanders'of these  lines   were   under   instructions   from  their offices to "regard his requests as -  orders, and-to obey them with due re- ���������������������������".  spect    and    profound    secrecy. 7 The  ,-  shifting of administrations  at  Puerto..

In" '-'���������������������������  Mr. Rodman's business, it was important to travel light.' If he found Senor  Miraflores   among   the   passengers "of-  the. Amazon,   it  was  his  intention to '  right-about-face,    and    return    south  again.' _ ���������������������������  Senor   Miraflores   had   been   in   the  States as- the secret and efficient head  of  that junta" which  Rodman  served.  He had very capably directed the' shipping of rifles and many sub-rosa details that must be handled beyond the  frontier, when it is intended to change    -  governments  "without, .the -knowledge."  or  consent, of  armed  and  intrenched  incumbents.      The    home-coming^ -of /  Senor Miraflores must of necessity be  unostentatious, since his arrival would-  be the signal for the conversion of the  quiet   steeps   of   San   Francisco    into  craters.  Rodman knew that, if the senor were  on-board-the-Amazon.-his-name-wonlrl���������������������������*  '���������������������������&_  not be on the sailing-list, and his august  personality  would   be   cloaked   in  disguise.      His    point  of   debarkation  would be some secluded  coast village ,  where  fellow   conspirators  could  hide  him.    His  advent into the capital it-,  self would  not be made at all unless  made at the head of an invading army,  and,  if so made, he would remain as  minister    of    foreign    affairs   in   the  cabinet   of   General - Vegas,   to   whom  just" now, as "to himself, "the"cily "gate's"'"  were closed.  But Senor Miraflores had selected  a more cautious means of entry than  the ship, which might boar travellers  who knew him. Rodman spent an  hour on the downward steamer. He  managed to see the face of every passenger, and even investigated the  swarthy visages in the steerage. I-Ie  asked of some tourists casual questions as to destination, and chatted  artlessly, then went over the side  again, and was rowed back across tho  intervening strip of sea. Immediately  upon his departure overside, the Am-^  azon proceeded on her course, and five,  minutes later the City of Rio was also  under way.  The next morning, after a late  breakfast, Saxon was lounging at the  rail amidship. He had ceased looking  backward, and all his gaze was for the  front. Ahead of him, the white superstructure, the white-duck uniform of  the officer pacing the bridge, the  whiteness of the holystoned deck, all ���������������������������  stood boldly out against the deep cobalt of the gently swelling sea. Saxon  was satisfied with life, and, when he  saw Rodman sauntering toward him,  he looked up with a welcoming nod.  '"Hello, Carter���������������������������I mean Saxon." The  gun-smuggler corrected his form of  address with a laugh.  The breezy American was a changed  and improved man. The wrinkled  gray flannels had given way to natty  white duck.

Almost his last political utterance in  justification of the Irish home rule bill  passed in the House of Commons offered as one of the prime reasons for its  adoption his belief that more than anything else it would tend to promote  friendship between England and the  United States.   *-  That this young First Lord of the  Admiralty should now be hailed ''in  England as the man of the hour and  at the same time should provide the  surest laugh in the London music halls,  where- his personal peculiarities are  mercilessly lampooned to ������������������n approvT  ing audience, is '.in keeping with the  role he has played through the dozen  years of his meteoric political career.  For ten years he has managed to keep  bimself the most cordially disliked and  at the same time the most conspicuous  man-in English public life.  His country has been amazed repeatedly by his audacity, his political  inconsistencies, his dynamic energy  and his unequalled power of self-advertisement. Not for one moment has  he been lost to the public eye. For his  scorn of precedent and radical cam-,  paign methods he has frequently been  denounced by the old British school of  politics' as being more than* half  iTankee. And so today, although'his  personal enemies���������������������������and they^ are-count -  less���������������������������are_ untiring* in their ridicule and  bitter, parodies of Sir Joseph" Porter's  song in "Pinafore" are heard in overy  London street,, this young "ruler of the  King's navee" has made himself strong  with that great majority-who demand  that Great Britain's supremacy on the  seas shall be, maintained "by boldly, in-,  creasing his naval budget with the  declaration to Germany ;that he was  prepared'to"-go her one better - in .any  building,,programme" which .she might  devise. ~y// <J ' ~      \ ���������������������������.. ~'-: "   ��������������������������� '  'Similarly his~warm advocacy of the  home' rule'bill, has:-endeared' him to  Irish" Nationalists.-* .Perhaps, no' pres-;  ent day statesman! has = a greater hold  individually on* the none .too-harmonious sections of.which the'Liberarcoalition " is formed. ' And yet * within a  fortnight the most violently- Conserva-  tive'-of J.the great British weeklies .has  been at pains to refute the rumor that  Churchill was about to return to,the  Conservative party as its leader.-'Winston Churchill as a friend,or foe-has  never failed to keep the British public  guessing. '      -.    .  .  For a man not much past thirty-  seven,-Winston Churchill's accomplishments prove that he inherited the bril-"  liant talents of his father, Lord.Ran-"  dolph"Churchill. He has achieved distinction in five different careers, as-a.  soldier, a lecturer, a-war correspondent, an author, and pre-eminently as,  a politician. In reality, on the word of  Sir Edward Grey, who named him as  a future premier in 1905, he may "be  said to have distinguished himself in  six, for he won a reputation as a  Unionist before he quitted that party  "for-tl!F^RrSdi"6!ili7==atrd~h-as���������������������������acqmred~fT  new and larger reputation since. From  the time he left Sandhurst, where he  prepared for the army, his fighting  qualities and tireless ^activity made  him a marked man.  His first service was in Cuba in 1895  as an attache with the Spanish forces.  At this- time he won a Spanish order.  Two years later he joined the Mala-  kand field force on the Indian frontier,  and -there-received a- medal -for���������������������������bravery. More military distinction came  to him in .$98 when he served with thc  Tirah expedition force tinder Sir W. L,  Lockhart. T-fc was with Lord Kitchener on tho Nile, and in the famous  charge at Omdurman won another  medal for gallantry. In this last campaign he was permitted to act also as  thc correspondent of a London paper.  Mis military experiences have been  vividly described in several published  volumes in which hc was no respecter  of persons. Thc breaking out of thc  Boer war saw him in the Transvaal as  the representative of the London Morning Post. Tho conspicuous bravery  which hc displayed in thc armored  train disaster nt Frcre, where he was  captured, brought him more decorations.  The picturesque escape which he  made from his prison in Pretoria has  been frequently misrepresented by his  enemies. He himself described his  hardships and experiences before a  fashionable audience "a dozen years  ago, at which time it may bc  remembered thero was considerable  indignation over the unauthorized use  of several prominent names in the list  of patrons. More than onCe" hc has  been called upon to bring libel suits  against those who averred that hc  escaped from the Boers by breaking  his parole. In February last Blackwood's Magazine, satirizing members  of the government in "A Lost Lay of  Ancient Rome," referred to Churchill  in these lines:    "  When captured bj' our Afric foes,  How cleverly he homeward stole,  And broke his prison and parole!  Behold him just from school released,  Playing at  soldiers in the east,  From discipline he seeks relief,  In mutiny against his chief.  The cable has just brought the news  of his revenge and final vindication.  The court accepted his statement that  no parole had been given, and Blackwood's, recognizing the injustice of the  imputation, made apology, which he  accepted and the suit was withdrawn.  BATS TO FIGHT MOSQUITOES  Thero is a man in Texas who has  found out a new way to fight the mosquito. His name is Dr. Charles R.  Campbell. He is official bacteriologist  of the city of San Antonio. His idea  is to employ bats as mosquito fighters.  The neighborhood of San Antonio is  especially ^plagued by mosquitoes���������������������������  malaria is more or less rife in that  vicinity���������������������������a^nd for ^a long time past the  inhabitants''of the municipality and its  suburbs have eagerly sought to find a  solution of the problem. Much benefit  has been obtained by keeping minnows  in cisterns and ' ponds���������������������������these small  fishes being greedy devourers of mosquito larvae���������������������������but.such measures have  not altogether met requirements.      -  Bats, as is well known, are insect-  eaters, and are particularly fond of  mosquitoes. In the twilight, when they  rove abroad, they devour immense  numbers of the pestiferous insects���������������������������  their manner being to dash back and  forth through a swarm and gobble the  victims up by wholesale'.  ��������������������������� In view, of which fact, it "occurred to  Dr.,Campbell that itmight be a good  idea to establish in and about San Antonio a number of "bat roosts," as he  calls them���������������������������that is to say, structures  so contrived as to' invite bats for sleeping purposes, t He-has already'put up  two of', them, and proposes to erect  others, those already in operation having proved highly successful. \] .  TO AID THE  MEMORY-*  ,;One of the-most profitable ways of  utilizing 'time not. usually productive  of benefit,-such as walking from point  "to- point, waiting, riding to and fro in  cars, travelling,* etc.,-is _the practice of  carrying "in the, pocket a small card, or  cards, say' about,'two -inches ,by "three  and'one-half'.inches, uponl which' is  written .something worth remembering}  A card of-this, size can.be/tielc^in. the  palm .of the 'hand.and referred to, fre-  .quently without attracting (attention. '���������������������������  " Long addresses.- can- be - memorized  after^ this r manners, in an incredibly  short time. -7 This-, suggests appoint  which'will prove'useful to* all who wish  to "speak'.'from memory.'" When the address hajp been'; written, - revised and  polished.'divide -into'convenient sections .and memorize not*"- from the beginning,, but from the ending���������������������������that is,  commence at the" conclusion and work  backwards.      '-77       - ' ,v' ,  There is a reason for this which will  be apparent to all who speak, from  memory.-'if the article is of any-considerable length and is memorized from  the beginning, there is a natural impatience to hasten the work and slight  the latter portion,"-", with ., the "consequence that fatigue .and faint'memory  impressions'' conspire to weaken the  effect of the delivery.    ' *,  . On the. other hand, it will be found  that as .one proceeds toward the deeper  cut memory' impressions the feeling of  confidence and strength grows,and interest increases as one progresses. This  method is also applicable to addresses  designed to be read. There is always  'the tendency to become more familiar  "with~thlf���������������������������opening-^emarksf^and���������������������������less-  familiar with the body of the address  and the concluding portion; whereas,  if all rehearsals are prosecuted by  reading section by section from the  conclusion, when the*" time comes to  read forward greater familiarity with  the matter will give a leverage that  can not be otherwise obtained.

Dr. Elliot S.  Rowe,  Commissioner of the Progress Club and
a publicist of known ability in
every city of the Pacific slope,
who addressed a public meeting
in Enderby last night, with the
hope of discussing with our fellow  townsmen  the great need
that exists in British Columbia
today for intra-provincial co-operation in an  effective   campaign
for community development, has,
for the past six years,  directed
this same work as it has applied
more particularly to Vancouver
and the Lower Mainland.   The
present need, as we believe all
will agree,  calls for a superior
effort than can be exerted by a
single organization.   In the past,
the Vancouver Information and
Tourist Association and the Vancouver Ad Club have done everything," and right now the Van-,
couver Progress   Club is doing
everything that goodwill and organized effort can achieve in the
interests of the entire' province,
district by district.
. The members, of the Progress
Club, and there are nine hundred
such representing the best interests of the  city  of -Vancouver,
are endeavoring to cope with- the
problem of how best to obtain the
most effecient publicity for the
province.    They are one in the
belief that the positions of city
and country are co-ordinate.   If
Vancouver is to advance it must
be because every district in the
province is making progress, and
to bring about an. advancement
worthy of our resources, we must
most surely co-operate.

The vision of a mad world and
an era of lunacy was prophesied
by Dr. Forbes Winslow of London, Eng., while expressing his
dissent from the statement made
at the Eugenics congress by Dr.
Mott, that increase in lunacy is
more apparent than real. He
said: "There will be more lunatics in the world than sane people
three hnndred years hence. This
prophecy is based on the present
rate of the growth of lunacy re-0
vealed by recent returns. We
are now rapidly approaching a
mad world. In every part of the
world civilization is advancing
and so insanity is bound to ad
vance. There were 36,762 lun
atics in 1859; there are now 135,'

not-been a pin to choose between
the Vancouver. and the New

vicious, unlawful play, and it is
ho credit- to "the province that the

such auspices. It was hoped
that the appointment of ia. com-

Professional football in England
started' out with similar tactics
twenty-=five years ago, but thorough organization, strict discipline and a determination to purify the game speedily killed the
lawless spirit, and now the game
is witnessed every Saturday by

In British Columbia it seems to
be impossible to secure the same
discipline and control. And if
this is the case it is better that
professional lacrosse should die
out than it should be continued
under conditions which are discreditable to sport and .disgraceful to the abiding communities.

out, and the road rendered impassable, hc not only suffers
inconvenience but may also be caused financial loss by
inability to get necessary supplies in time for spring planting. And at best, with wooden culverts, part of the money
that should be used to make better roads must be spent

WEEKLY  South Pole Explorers  Captain Amundsen and Captain  Scott are close personal friends. They  met just before they started for the  polo and when they parted they wished  each other success. Captain Amundsen, whose expedition was a smaller  one that that of Captain Scott, had a  slight advantage over Captain Scott,  as the former's base of operations was  - established about SO miles nearer to  the gual than that of his opponent.  Their equipment varied in many respects, Captain Amundsen relying on  dog transport and hi.s men being  . equipped with skis on which they expected to make great speed over the  glacier ice, while Captain Scott took  with him dogs, ponies and motor  sledges; Captain Amundsen's party  consisted of only sixteen men while  that of Captain Scott numbers sixty,  and is the best equipped of any expedition which ever attempted Arctic  or Antarctic exploration.  Captain Amundsen, the discoverer of  the Xorthwest Passage, left Norway in  1910 with the ostensible purpose of  making an attempt to drift across the  Arctic Ocean in search of -the North  Pole, a voyage which was likely to occupy not less than six years. The  first intimation that he was not in the  Arctic Ocean came when his steamer  the Fram was sighted by the Terra  Nova, Scott's, ship, early last year.  Amundsen then went into winter quarters early in 1011 al Pay of "Whales, in  Ross Sea. The party was to have been  picked up by his ship some time in  February of this year on his return  from the trip across the ice. Considerable interest has been aroused as to  who would be first to communicate to  , the world the first news as to ihe results of his Antarctic expedition���������������������������  Amundsen or Captain Scott. The  former had a longer return journey  than Scott, but the latter was compelled to make a stop to pick up a  party, and has not yet been heard from.  Amundsen's position as regards the  charg*e that- he was playing an underhanded game with regard to Scott,  as told by Nansen, was as follows:  "After Cook's and Peary's return the  interest for his North Polar expedition  ceased; the support he had been promised from America, his last hope, was  . withdrawn, and the Norwegian Parliament refused to give him the additional  grant  required.       No   other   resources  ���������������������������_   were  left.    If nothing were  done  the  money    of    his    supporters  would  be  -' wasted.    He   had   therefore   either   to  . give up the whole .undertaking, on .the  preparation    of    which  he  had  spent  some years of his life, or to do something tended to arouse the interest of  . the public at large in order to put himself in a position  to* raise the money  still'   wanting.      He  chose  the  latter  ���������������������������  course, ancl, fearing that we might ad-  . vise him not to go to the Antarctic, and  considering it his duty to take the responsibility  on  himself alone,  he  decided  not  to  tell  any of us  who had  assisted hirn with the preparations for  the "North  Polar expedition about his  new decision."  A letter fronf Amundsen dated February 9, 1911, was brought north by the  Fram after thc party had been landed.  He gave the reasons why he made his  headquarters on the Barrier Ice a  little to the west of Edward VII. Land  at the point along this remarkable ice  wall where Captain James Clark Ross  in 1S-12 observed a large indentation or  bay in the wall. In 1900. Borchgrevink.  the Norwegian explorer, entered this  small bay and thence climbed up to  the Barrier Ice surface, which he found  stretching southward as a wide, level  plain as far as the eye could see. .Later  this bay was seen by Captain Scott;  and Sir Ernest Shackleton entered it  in the course of his expedition of 190S,  and named it Bay of Whales. Because  this bay had been observed at intervals for over sixty -years, Amundsen  decided that it must be an enduring  formation and would afford a safe harbor in which to unload his expedition.  The day after he sighted the Barrier  -he-reached- this-bay, which is in about  10-1 deg.- W. long, His theory of the  origin of the bay is that the sea shoals  where thr- bay,eexlsts and the mighty  glacier was thus forced out on oil her  sido forming thus a great indentation  in the ice wall.  The Fram was safely moored to the  ice in the bay, and on January 16, 1911,  the party began to unload the cargo.  The house was erected on top of the  barrier ice, ISO feet above tho surface  of the bay. The Greenland dogs, Uf>  in number, picked for their hauling  qualities, slowly pulled the heavy laden  sledges up to the site. The solidly  bttiit house stood safe and secure, sunk'  four feet down in the snow as hard as  rock and supported by back stays on  all sides. Amundsen named it "Fram-  heim" and it stood in about 1G-1 deg.  AV. Long., 7S deg. -10' S. Lat. It is the  most southerly habitation yet built in  the Antarctic. Fifteen tents were set  up around the house for the use of the  dogs and as storerooms for food supply, coal, wood, clothing, etc. The food  depot contained provisions sufficient  for two years. Up to the time the  Fram left, the party had lived almost  entirely on seal meat, which Amundsen'wrote he would not exchange for  any other dish in the world. Seals  were found in large numbers and he  expected to secure an adequate winter  supply for his party and the dogs.  "It is my intention," he wrote, "to  lay down a main depot in SO deg. S.  Lat., and a smaller one a.s far south as  possible; and I hope that, with the excellent means at our disposal, we shall  get to .S3 deg. with the smaller depot  in the autumn, before the dark season  sets in.    I can say nothing more with  regard   to   our  future  prospects.    "We  shall do whal we can."  The Fram is a 400-ton gasoline auxiliary and one of the strongest ships  ever built for polar exploration. She is  only 113 feet long and 3G feet beam.  Her hull is made of four and five thicknesses of heavy timber and at the bow  is four feet thick, while at the stern  it is three feet. It was in the Fram  that Nansen made his "farthest north"  in 190o. There were nineteen men  aboard the Fram when Amundsen determined to try for the South Pole and  neither among them nor among his  11 :j Eskimo dogs was there a single  ailment, when, on better than schedule  time, he landed at the edge of the barrier.  I  REWARDS OF A DRESSMAKER  If anybody is qualified to explain the  mysterious processes by which fashions in dress are imposed upon the  world it must be the head of the Parisian house of Paquin, in the Rue de la  Paix.  There is no doubt of the efliciency  with which she dominates the greatest  dressmaking establishment in the  world, lime. Paquin assumed "the  dictatorship of the realm of Fashion,"  as the phrase makers will have it, in  December, 1907, upon the death of her  husband. M. Isador Paquin was decorated by the minister of commerce for  his services to France through his preeminent genius in hi.s art. He was an  unknown clerk of the Paris Bourse,  and his bride was an equally obscure  little dressmaker at the time of their  marriage. about 1S91. But shortly  after they set up housekeeping a  wealthy patron established them in a  dressmaking business, small but in an  excellent location.  At that time the great artists of  fashion were wont to hold themselves  coldly and mysteriously aloof from  their patrons. The newcomers in the  field adopted an opposite policy. Monsieur, a born diplomat and a far-sighted business man young, handsome and  suave, and madame, charming and  tactful, were always accessible and always courteous.  Such qualities supplementing unquestioned taste .and originality, prove-  ed so compelling that by the end of a  dozen years the annual income of the  house of Paquin' was about $400,000.  Today it is probably far in excess of  that figure._-Aside"from her interest  in the establishment, Mme. Paquin  draws a salary of'$6,0,000.  The detail of business is enormous.  A" small army is employed not only in  designing, experimenting and making  but also-in" scouting for new ideas to  be modified or exaggerated. Then  there are'the mannequins, who exhibit  the costumes in the showrooms, not to  speak of persons of far more consequence who wear the latest creations  on the stage or at the races.  Save the Bal>ie5/  NFANT MORTALITY is something frlghfiul.   We can hardly realize that of  all the children born, in civilized countries, twenty two per cent., "or nearly  one-quarter, die before they reach one year; thirtyseven per cent,, or more  than one-third, before they are five, and one-half before they are fifteen!  We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save a majority of these precious lives, Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these  infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations, Drops, tinctures  and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or less opium, 'or  morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons. In any quantity  they stupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestions, sickness, death. Castoria  operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of  Chas. E Fletcher. Castoria causes the blood to circulate properly, opens the  pores of the skin and allays fever.  Letters from Prominent Physicians  addressed to Chas. H. Fletcher.  .pHillipllilllilUIKIIIilllllilllllillllllilllllll'lilllllililllllliiliilllillii'ui;  AN   AFRICAN   DOG  TRAINLR  During the Spanish campaign in  Morocco a year or so ago mention was  made of the fact that the natives dressed regiments of dogs in capes, and  military caps and sent them forth into  the field, where in the lorig grass they  were mistaken by the enemy for  soldiers creeping or lying in great)  numbers ready to take aim.  These dogs were raised by a mountaineer who makes a specialty of training dogs for the chase, numbers of  which he has disposed of to Europeans  notably Russians. He now has in  each settlement within a radius of  't^-tjm-y^iiiis^dTf^^  dogs, which, though small in stature,  are swift runners and eager hunters  with a scent that is said to be most  unusual. This mountaineer makes  it a business to collect young and  starving dogs and to raise them for  sale, and has recently attained to the  oflicial dignity of game-master in the  particular part of Morocco where he  has long had his home.  _A_ Spanish dog-fancier visited him  last summer and was told that the  English pointer is doubtless a direct  descendant of the old-time Spanish  hunting-dog imported into Spain from  Africa. The setter is two hundred  years older at least. But it was tho  acquaintance of this illiterate African with all the different breeds of  dogs that was so astonishing. He  spoke of crossing the magnificent Russian greyhound with one of his own  puny little specimens, obtaining a new  breed with monstrous neck and enormous bushy tail, but almost no  body. This was exhibited, he said,  at a London dog-show as a Russian-  Chinese breed. He also told of making a p'resent lo two Chinese officers  of four of his best specimens and  learning later that they had eaten  them.    He was much disgusted.  9 oo Drops  iiiiiiiiiiiiiiin.iiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimtiiiii  M I I I * 1 I  HI  I 1 ��������������������������� I I I ������������������������������������������������������ 1 | ��������������������������� J I | [ I | ��������������������������� | I I ��������������������������� III M HI 1 I I I I I  ^Vegetable Preparationtbr Assimilating the Food andReguIa-  Ung tiie Stomachs and Bowels of  Infants /Children  Promotes Digestion.Cheerful-  ness andRest.Contains neither  Opium.Morphine nor Mineral.

He pleaded guilty, and received sentence, when the judge asked  how, it was he managed to lift those  chickens right under tlie window of the  owner's house when there was a dog in  the yard. '     '"*   .  "Hit wouldn't be of no use, Judge,"  said the man, "to try to 'splain dis  thing to you all. Ef you was to try it  you liko as not would get yer hide full  o' shot an' get no chicken, nuther. Ef  you want to engage in any rascality,  Judge, yo' better stick to de bench,  whar yo' am familiar."  THE SIZE OF LONDON  The size of London impresses the  c lonial mind. Sometimes the impression   is  a little  exaggerated.    For  in-  be taken to be the centre of commerce  an 1 finance of the empire. That is a  great distance in a crowded centre like  London, It takes too long for a busy  man to travel by 'bus. Sometimes it  would take, perhaps, an hour to get to  the bank." The thoroughfares between  the bank and the Strand are indeed  crowded, but one could thread one's  way through them on foot in less than  half the time. London traffic is not  as" fast as'the'Londoner thinks iris,"  but it seldom drops to a mile and a  half an hour. The modern motor-juggernauts, barring breakdowns, do the  distance in less than ten minutes even  in  the  busiest  hours.  Thero is at least this truth in Sir  John Forrest's idea, however. London,  for all its tubes and motor-'buses, is  still the most diflicult city perhaps in  tho empire, certainly in the United  Kingdom, to get about in. Taxi-cabs,  of course, are ruled out. Sir John had  another strange notion. "The Aldwych  site," he said, "is rather noisy. 1 may  be met with tlie reply 'So is the site of  the Bank of England.' But at the bank  the traffic is very much congested, and  is consequently slow." Apparently he  has never heard of a motor-'bus grinding along on its low gear, and does not  realize that congested traffic means a  tremendous honking of impatient motor horns. The difference between the  bank and Aldwych in noisiness would  be more like that between Merrey in a  fog and mid-Atlantic.  with the great resourcefulness and invention of the artist, the extraordinary lucidity and directness of his stout  Dutch soul.  Born in 161S at Soest, near Utrecht,  Lely was destined by his father, John  van der Faes, a captain of foot, for a  military career. From the fact that  the father of Lely once lived in rooms  over a perfumer's ship at The Hague  .which J)ore.a^lil.V-for_its_sign..hiS-adopt--  ed name, spelt Lilly, Lely, or Lylley,  was derived. The son showed a decided preference for painting*; he was  sent to the studio of a Haarlem portrait painter, and, at the age of twenty-  three, he came to England in the train  of William, Prince of Orange, the betrothed of the daughter of Charles the  First. His first commission in England was to paint the portraits of the  bridal pair. Lely followed closely in  the-t'ootsteps of Van-Dyck, und-soon  won a secure position. The fall of the  monarchy inconvenienced him no whit,  ���������������������������he merely painted his women plainer,  to suit the drab Puritan taste. The  return of Charles the Second brought  him into his kingdom; no other painter  had so great a reputation or was in  such demand at court.  Eleanor Gwyn, the most' piquant and  charming actress of the day, the most  popular of all the King's favorites, because of ner frank, unsentimental. English nature, is described as being "low  of stature and plump," with the most  diminutive foot in England. The  diarist Pepys does not attempt to conceal the warmth of his admiration for  "pretty, witty Nelly," as he very fre-  ciuently calls her.  of the barnyard species, caused it to be  trimmed and spurred to resemble a  game-cock, and sent it in a richly  decorated cage to the Sultan.  The ruse was successful, but the Sultan, at first'delighted with the gift,  soon sent for the diplomatist to ex-.  plain, if he could, why his bird had  shown no inclination to fight. The  Russian went, examined the bird in  the presence of Abdul Hamid, and with  great astonishment and regret acK-  nowledged that it was quite unable to  cope with tbe royal game-cocks, "which  were undoubtedly of a superior breed.  A conference followed on the subject  of game-cocks in general; and when  this was finished the Muscovite succeeded in drawing the Sultan in a mood  for conversation of a different character, and in time adroitly introduced the  political matter he had so long awaited  an. opportunity to ..discuss., _ .After, a.  long interview, he returned to his embassy triumphant over his colleagues.  PRETTY,   WITTY   NELL   GWYN  Lely is famous for his portraits of  the beautiful, favored women of  Charles the Second's time. He outdistanced his predecessor and master,  Van Dyck, in his portraits of ladies,  and the celebrated pictures of Nell  Gwyn, Mrs. Middleton, Lady Falmouth,  Mary Davis, and other voluptuous  beauties of Whitehall, painted by Sir  Peter Lely, are among the most important of England's art treasures.  Their expressive features and attitudes,  the ample richness of the whole design,   have   been   remarked,     together  DIPLOMACY AND COCK-FIGHTING  Diplomatists abroad tell how a distinguished member of the Russian  corps diplomatique cleverly outwitted  Abdul Hamid, the late Sultan of Turkey. The Russian displayed a curious  ingenuity in introducing the business  of his country in the guise of personal  pleasure.  It appears that the Sultan had absolutely refused to grant an audience  to any member of the diplomatic body  at Constantinople and that during the  period in question Abdul Hamid spent  the greater part of his time in cock-  fighting, an amusement whereof he was  passionately fond.  The Russian heard that His Imperial  Majesty stood in need of fresh birds  to supply the place of those killed in  fight, whereupon the wily Muscovite  procured   a   fine-looking   white    fowl  THE   FLOURISHING   BIRCH  One valuable forest tree at least is  withstanding the inroads of ax and  fire. This is the white birch, sometimes called the paper birch or canoe  birch, since it furnished tbe Indians  the material for their famous canoes.  The opinion has been ventured by the  forest service that more white birch  is now growing than was the case two  hundred years ago. It spreads rapidly  over spaces left bare by forest fires,  but it is a short-lived tree and does  not prosper where it has to compete  with other trees for light and soil. No  other wood as hard as birch can be  worked with so little dulling of the  tools and this quality, with its handsome color and its failure to warp after  seasoning, makes it much used in the  manufacturing of various novelties.  Practically all spools are made of  birch and some eight hundred million  spools are turned out each year in the  State of Maine alone.  DAILY WORK OF THE BEE  How much work is done daily by  each bee in order to make up his quota  for the building of the hive? An agriculturalist who has" made a study of  bees estimates that each bee sips more  than six hundred flowers per load, and  as he makes twenty trips to and from  the hive daily he visits twelve thousand flowers.  139 1  $  4  Thursday, August 8, 1912  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Bailing Wire, $4.15  per 100 pounds  Binder Twine, 14c lb.

C.  ! - Prior to the  passing  of  the  "'Advance  to Settlers" - Act  in  New Zealand, the country, was  continually in a. turmoil,  due to  labor strikes, but since the passing, of this act labor strikes are  practically unknown.   Following  the passing of this act  all  government land was thrown open  to the public, and was leased to  settlers under different methods.  1. A short lease of twenty-one  years; with the option to purchase within that time.   2.  Perpetual lease for 99 years with a  valuation by the government and  an adjustment-of the rent according-to the ��������������������������� increased  valuation.  The procedure of repayment of  Government loans is similar to  the Debenture bylaws of British  Columbia.   A sinking fund of ��������������������������� 1  per cent is paid in by the borrower every year, and he "has the  privilege of paying, a-larger sum,  if he so desires.   As soon as the  sinking fund paid in by the borrower totals.-the amount borrowed,- tlie -whole debt is  wiped off.  Until the' passing of. this Act,  most of the farmers were under  mortgage to the Loan Companies  and - were    hopelessly��������������������������� crushed  down in an effort to pay the -' excessive rate of interest,   and   it  invariably followed that,  finally,  the farmer'lost his home by-foreclosure, and the Loan Company  reaped tlie benefit of his many  years"of toil'.

Herald, the Manchester- ^GuardiariJ^the '���������������������������Sheffield.

Several series of articles - have  already.been* published' by. Mr.  Scheff, dealing with the great  possibilities of . the .'Canadian  west, arid giving advice to prospective -settlers from the old  country.  "Canada" has rarely ' loomed  more largely in the minds and the  affections of the home*- country  than at the present moment,"  says Mr. Scheff. "For years the  Dominion has been calling for  settlers from the motherland, for  men of spirit and energy, who  -wouldHake=their���������������������������shareHn==4he-  building up of what is to be- one  of the greatest nations of the  twentieth century. And the call  of the west is now being answered with increasing alacrity.  "It is safe to say that in the  years that are coming a growing  proportion of the bone and sinew  of _the_old_ country _^yill_-.be_ .employed in the development of the  daughterland in North America,  and that while Canada herself  will thereby promote her own advance, the united kingdom will  draw increased imperial strength  from the connection."  the most popular and beneficial  measures   ever introduced into  the New Zealand legislation, and  the Gevernment, responsible for  it, has been sustained in power  for  over  twenty  years.   It  is  very evident'that .conditions  in  Canada today are a facisimile of  what they were in New Zealand  before the advancing of the "Advance to Settlers"  Act.   Thousands of settlers on the land are  struggling under rthe burden of  borrowed money, with extortionate rates of interest; and millions  of acres of the finest land in the  world are lying idle for'the want  of money and muscle to develop  them.   It is "needless to say that  every acre, lying idle and undeveloped, means a loss to the country, and is  also  increasing  the  cost of living.   The Government  of Canada is spending millions of  dollars in assisting to build railways for the opening up .of" new  territory, but to make those railways a  success,' this ' territory  must be producing to.-its. fullest  extent. , If*the" .Government,  in  its wisdom, will afford the same  assistance" to  the  farmer,  who  are the backbone of any country,  which it is   doing- for   railway  building, the result will prove an  unexampled    prosperity-   Jittle  dreamed ofK and will produce a  population- of, an   independent,  self-reliant people, which " is the  highest type"of citizenship.���������������������������E."

Once again, as scores of times before,  he led them in song, waving his arms,  seeming to sing with his soul and body.  Once again he led them in prayer with  that strange power of his which seems  to "clutch the heart-strings of all the  multitude. Then he spoke to them, in  that whisper which has a sweetness In  spite of its hoarseness, and his words  made the vast audience laugh, and  weep, and cheer.  He spoke of his blindness. '-'Day by  day, week by week, my sight has been  failing me, until 1 have to talk to immense audiences, as I clo tonight, without seeing the face of any one of my  hear.crs."  The people groaned. But their groan  became a cheer when his next sentence was spoken.  * "However, I am thankful I have been  able to keep to the fight, and in a few  days I am to undergo an operation  which is to restore my vision and make  me a young man once more."

His native politeness prompted* him  to gloss over the defect, and,-after a  moment's reflection -he wrote among  the items of personal description :--  '-"Eyes dark,---beautiful, tender, expressive, but one .of them missing."  An old darky with an old gray mule  mitched to a ramshackle wagon, stood  on the incline of Capitol Hill, in Washington, during one of the worst sleet  storms in January.  The old man huddled in his rabbit-  skin cap, shivering; the mule was  trembling with the cold. Two congressmen, waiting for a belated car, were  attracted by the strange outfit and  wondered,   as^ time  went  on  and  the  darky made no effort to depart, what  ailed the old fellow.  One of the congressmen walked over  and said:     "Why don't you move on,  uncle?"  The   old   darky   pointed a trembling  finger    at    his    "team"    and   replied:  " 'Cause dis yere* mule won't go 'les' I  whistle  at  him,   and  it's    so    cold   I  cyarn't whistle!"  *    *    *  A man once was talking about hard  luck, and his friend was listening with  a sour expression.  -==__Wh y*f=y o u=d o nL*L=J_.na_w__=*w_h .\L1) ard.  luck is!" said the friend.

From her home in Newton where she  resides with her large family, Mrs. Wilkinson writes:" "For years I was pale,  anaemic and lacking in vitality. 1 was  a constant sufferer from indigestion,  and the distress and pain it caused me,  coupled with ever-increasing anaemia,  made mc weaker day by day. Constant  headaches, specks before thc eyes and  attacks oi' dizziness made me feel as if  life were not worth living. My constitution was completely undermined and  the constant pallor and dullness in my  eyes showed what a sick woman I was.  I began to take Dr. Hamilton's' Pills  and the .improvement, although slow,  was sure.  "I gradually got back my strength  and my appetite grew much stronger,  and I enjoyed my meals thoroughly. I  felt happier and more contented and  the sickly pallor of my face was replaced by a bright, rosy color, which  proved that a strong medicine was at  work.

In the last few years there has  been'-a growing demand for alfalfa hay  for southern towns and cities.-  Of all the farm animals, none enjoy  a.  bite  of young, grass more  than * the  horses.    During the spring seeding,  if  stopped at the end of a field, they are  quick to got a mouthful of the grass if  opportunity  permits.    A; taste  of  the  sweet,  palatable  grass  seems   to   spoil  their appetite for dry feed, which they  do-not relish as woll during thev spring  months  as  at    other    seasons.    Many  horses arc deprived  of grass the year  round.    True, a horse on tender grass  (..aniiofc do as much real strenuous work  as one on dry feed, but there is nothing  better for the animal's system than a  spring   renovating,  accomplished   without, drugs, but rather by a liberal use of  nature's   best   animal     food,     pasture  grass.   Grass acts as a mild laxative to  the horse, but is sufficiently marked in  its action to remove all waste material  from the animal's digestive tract and  tone up thc system. Care must be taken  in turning horses that are being worked daily to'grass, and there is no,better time for this than Sundays!    Keep  thc horse in the stable Saturday night,  and turn hint out on Sunday morning.  He is rested, is not    overheated    and  fatigued, as on the night after a hard  day's work, and is in a better condition  to 'make good use of the new feed.   A  tired, worn-out, overheated animal often  gives trouble when turned on pasture  grass from indigestion.    Stable all the  work horses at night, after their first  da j* on grass.   As the nights get warmer  and the rush of    work    becomes    less  strenuous, and the horse is more accustomed to the grass, he can bc left out,  but should be housed during cold, damp  or    wet-   nights.    Of course, when required to work, grain and a little dry  feed arc necessary.

Lord Kitchener's reply shows  a certain sardonic humor that must be '  classified among the'finer-weapons of  diplomacy.

We have to the best of our ability, squarely, conscientiously,  and except as prevented by the delays in railway transportation, promptly, executed all business entrusted to our care and we now desire to tender our hearty thanks to all those who have employed us. The many  letters we have received (some of which we will publish in our advertisements before long) expressing approval of and satisfaction with the  way we have served our clients, have been most encouraging to us, and  will stimulate us to use in the future renewed efforts to serve to the  best advantage for their interest, all who entrust the disposal of their  grain to us. A new season has started over Western Canada with its  hard work for the farmer, and we sincerely trust that a favorable growing time and abundant yield, with a favorable harvest time, may follow  to amply reward the husbandman for his energy and toil.

Tho painter admitted tho soft self-  impeachment with a qualification.  "I  begin  to   think  you   are  a very  destructive one,"  "I am," announced Rodman, calmly.  "I could spin you many a yarn of intrigue, but for the fact that, since you  began wearing a halo instead of a  hat, you have become too sanctified  -to listen." , -    Z.  "Inasmuch," smilingly suggested the  painter, "as we might yet be languishing in the cuartel except for the fact  that I was able to give so good an  account of myself, I don't see that you  have any reasonable quarrel with my  halo."  Rodman raised his brows.  "Oh,. I never lost sight of the fact  that you had some reason for the saint  role, and, as you say, I was in on the  good results. But, now that you are  flitting northward, what's the idea of  keeping your ears stopped?"  .

Rodman proceeded to sketch the out-  - lines' of the' conspiracy.*. It was much  the   stereotyped   arrangement  with   a  " few variations. Two] regiments in the  city barracks^-suspected of disloyalty,  "had  been  practically disarmed by the  - President, but these troops had been  secretly re-armed with a part of the  guns brought in by Rodman, and would  be ready,to rise at the signal, together  with   several   other   disaffected   com-  . mands���������������������������not   for  the   government,   but  "against it.  =:===^T lT5=^oTTn taih^  really not a mountain at all, but a foot  hill  of  the  mountains.    Yet,   it  looks  down  on  the  city  of Puerto  Frio as  Marathon   on   the   sea,   and   here  are  guns trained inward as well as outward.   These guns can shell the capital into ruins in  the space of a few  hours;  then, they can hurl their projectiles further, and play  havoc with  the-environs.    Also,   they  can   guard  --the-clty-frbm -the~approa'ch_that._Iics  nlong the roads from the interior.    A  commander who holds San Francisco  stands at tho door of Puerto Frio with  a latch-key in his hand,    The revolutionists   under   Vegas   had   arranged  thoir attack on the basis of unwarned  assault.   Tho Dictator had indeed some  apprehensions, but they were fears for  the   future���������������������������not   for    the   immediate  present.   The troops garrisoned on San  Francisco,  ostensibly  the  loyal  legion  of the Dictator's forces, were in, reality  watching the outward approaches only  as doors through which they were to  welcome friends.    The guns that were  trained and ready to belch fire on signal from Vegas, were the guns trained  inward  on  the  city,   and,  when  they  opened, the main plaza would resemble  nothing so much as the far end of a  bowling alley when an expert stands  on the foul-line, and the'"palace of the  President would  be  the king-pin  for  their gunnery.    The insurrecto forces  were to enter San Francisco without  resistance, and the opening of its crater  was   to   be    the   signal    for    hurling  through  the streets of the city  itself  those* troops   that   had   been   secretly  armed  with   the   smuggled  weapons,  completing the confusion and throwing  into stampeding .panic the demoralized  remnants upon which the government  depended.  Unless there were a traitor in very  exclusive and carefully guarded councils, there would hardly be a miscarriage of the plans.  Saxon stood idly listening to these  confidences.    Nothing seemed strange  to him, and least of all the entire willingness of the conspirator to tell him  things that involved life and death for  men and governments. He knew that,  in spite of all he had said, or could  say, to the other man, he was the former ally in crime. He had thought  at first that Rodman would ultimately  discover some discrepancy in appearance which would undeceive him, but  now ho realized that the secret of the  continued mistake was an almost miraculous resemblance, and the fact that  tho other man had, in tho former  affair, met him in person only twice,  and that five yoars ago.  "And so," went on Rodman in conclusion, "I'm here adrift, waiting "for  the last act. I thought Miraflores  might possibly be on the Amazon last  night, and so, while you sat dawdling  overr'letter-paperv and pen, little Howard Stanley was up and doing. I went  across to the other boat, and made  search, but it was another case of  nothing transpiring. Miraflores was  too foxy to go touring so openly."  Saxon felt that some comment was  expected from him, yet his mind was  wandering far afield from the doings  of juntas. All these seemed as unreal  as scenes from an extravagantly staged musical comedy. What appeared to  him most real at that moment was the  picture of a slim girl walking, dryad-  like, through the. hills of her Kentucky homeland, and the thought that  he would soon be walking with her.   -  "It looks "gloomy, for the city," he  said, abstractedly.  "Say," went on Rodman, "do you  know that the only'people on that boat  booked for Puerto Frio were three fool  American tourists, and that, of the  three, two were women? Now, what  chance, have those folks-got to enjoy  themseives? Do you think Puerto  Frio, say day .after tomorrow, will  make a hit with them?" ' The" informant laughed softly to himself, but Saxon was still deep in his own thoughts.  It suddenly struck him with surprised  discovery that the view from the.deck  was beautiful. And Rodman, also, felt  the languid-invitation of the sea air,  and it madehim'^vish to talk. So, unmindful of a self-absorbed listener,-, he  went on garrulously."  n , -"  _-"You-know, I;felt like quoting to  them, 'Into the jaws of death, into the  mouth of hell, sailed the three'tourists,'  but',that would have' been'to tip off  state secrets.,-'If people'will fare forth  for adventure,".-Pguess-they've got to  have-it"y_~y-y.yy-_:-../'/.. - ?f --v.---;  ; v'Do you suppose,'' asked -Saxon, perfunctorily, '"they'll, .be J "'in 7," actual  danger?"    _-   ''_   * >. -'.  .- .-' ' _-,���������������������������'/���������������������������  ..'"Danger!" .repeated- the filibuster'  with **��������������������������� sarcasm;- "Danger," did you; say ?

"You see, I have to be careful in my  talk. I might say too much. _ As it  was, I knocked the town to the fellow  all-I could. But he seemed hell-bent  on getting there," and getting there  quick. He was a fool Kentuckian, and  you can't head off a bull-headed Kentuckian with subtleties or hints. I've  met one. or two of them before. And  ���������������������������rth~ere^^,^7girl'^lonff=^Hor^eemTd;^ff  anxious to g*et there as he was. That  girl was all to the good!"  Saxon leaned suddenly forward.  "A Kentuckian?" he demanded. "Did  you hear his name?"  "Sure," announced Mr. Rodman.  "Little Howard Stanley picks up information all along the way. The chap  was named George Steele, and "  But the speaker broke off in his  story, 'to-stand astounded-at-the-conduct of his auditor.  "And the girl!" shouted Saxon. "Her  name?" ��������������������������� *  "Hor name," replied the intriguer,  "was Miss Filson."  Suddenly, tho inattention of the  other had fallen away, and he had  wheeled, his jaw dropping. For an instant, hc stood in an attitude of bewildered shock, gripping the support of  the rail like a prize-fighter struggling  against the groggy blackness of the  knock-out blow.  Saxon stood such a length of time  as it might have required for the referee to count nine over him, had the  support he gripped been that of the  prize-ring instead of the steamer's rail.  Then, he stepped forward, and gripped  Rodman's arm with fingers that bit  into the flesh.  "Rodman," he said in a low voice  that was almost a whisper, between  his labored breathings, "I've got to talk  to you���������������������������alone. There's not a minute to  lost.    Come to my stateroom."  and into final distrust.   At last, Saxon  ended with:  "And,������������������so, I've got to get them away  from there. I've got to get back to  that town, and you must manage it.  For God's sake, don't delay!" The  painter had not touched on the irrelevant point of his own mystery, or why  the girl had followed him. That would  have been a story the other would not  have believed, and there was no time  for argument and futile personalities.  The slow northward fifteen knots had  all at once become a fevered racing in  the wrong direction, and each throb of  the shafts in the engine-room seemed  to hurl him madly through space away  from his goal.  When ho halted In his narrative, the  other man looked sternly up, and his  sharp features were decisively set.  "Suppose 1 should get you there," he  began swiftly. "Suppose it were possible to get back in time, what reason  have I to trust you? Suppose I were  willing to trust you absolutely, what  right have I���������������������������a mere agent of a cause  that's bigger than single lives���������������������������to send  you back there, where a word trorn  you would spoil everything? My God,  man, there are thousands of people  there who are risking their lives to  change this government. Hundreds of  them must die to do it. For months,  we have worked and planned, covering  and secreting, every detail of our plot-  our hands. Now, a word of warning,  an indiscreet act, the changing of the  garrison on.San Francisco, and v/here  would "we be? Every platoon that follows ' Vegas and Miraflores marches  straight int<5-a death-trap! The signal  is given, and every man goes to destruction as swift as a bat out of hell.  That's what you are asking me to do  ���������������������������to play traitor to my cause.- And you  calmly tell me I must do it simply because you've got friends in town."  The man came to" his feet with an  excited gesture of anger.  "You know that in this business no  man can trust his" twin brother, and  you ask me to trust you to the extent  of laying in your hands everything I've  worked for���������������������������the lives of an army!"  His tones rose to a climax of-vehemence:    "And that's'what you ask!"  "You know you-can trust me," began  Saxon,'- conscious of the feeble nature  of his argument. "You didn't have to  tell me. I didn't ask your confidence.  I warned you "not to-tell me."   -  - "Maybe I was a damned fool, and  maybe you were pretty slick,, playing  me along with your bait of indifference," retorted Rodman, hotly./ /'How.  am I to know, whom,you really mean  to warn? _You insist .that I shairhar-  bor' a childlike faith in-you,* yet* you  won't _- trust me - enough -" to" quit your  damned play-acting*.;-.Youicall on me  to believe" in you.^ye't! you ,lie"' to me,-  and cling toj-your smug' alias." , You  won't confess who*yb'ti. are,' though'you  knowl know; it:j,I_No," Mr/lCarter,/*J  must",decline.'/..-~* Zy'i'J' /.      ,,"-/]  / Saxon stood^ white and rigid. , Every  moment wasted in argument-imperiled  more deeply the girl and the friends he  must save, for whose hazarded lives  he was unwittingly-.responsible.'

"I don't have' to tell a syllable of  your plans," he contended, desperately.  ".They will go with me without asking the reason. 1 have ��������������������������� only , to' see  them. You 'have my -life in*'your  hands; you can go with me.- You can  disarm me, and keep me in view every  moment of the time. You can kill me  at the first false move., You can "  "Cut out the tommy:rot," interrupted Rodman, with fierce s bluntness. " "I  can do better than that, and you know  it. My word on this' ship goes the  same as if I were an admiral. I can  say to the captain that you assaulted  have a force of convincing veracity  that means more. Possibly, it may  have been the hypnotic quality of Saxon's eyes, but, whatever it was, Rodman found it impossible to disbelieve  him when he spoke in this fashion. In  the plaza, he had suddenly turned the  scales and held power of life and death  ovor Rodman, and his only emotion  had been that of heart-broken misery.  Carter had been, like Rodman himself,  the intriguer, but he had always been  .trustworthy with his friends. He had  been violent, bitter, avenging, but  never mean ln small ways. That had  been one of the reasons why Rodman,  once convinced that the danger of vengeance was ended, had remained almost passionately anxious to prove to  the other that he himself had not been  a traitor. Carter had been the Napoleonic adventurer, and Rodman only  thc pettier type. For Carter, he held a  sort of hero-worship. Rodman's meth-  o's were those of chicane, but rightly  or wrongly he believed that he could  r������������������ad thc human document.  If this other' man were telling the  tiuth, and if love of a woman were  his real motive, he could be stung into  fury with a slur. If that were only a  pretext, the other would not allow  his resentment to imperil.his plans���������������������������  he would repress it, or simulate it  awkwardly.  "So," he commented satirically, Vit's  emerged from the muzzle. The pictures are regarded as highly valuable  to the science of artillery. Experiments with mortars were made with  the same apparatus with equal success. '  ting.

Below, in the narrow confines of the  cabin, Saxon paced back and forth excitedly as he talked. For five minutes,  he did not pause, and the other man,  sitting on the camp-stool in a corner  of the place, followed him with eyes  much as a lion-tamer, shut in a cage  with his uncertain charge, keeps his  gaze bent on'the animal. As he listened, Rodman's expression ran a gamut  from astonishment, through sympathy,  my  I can have you put in  irons, and thrown down in the hold,  and, by God, I'm going to do it!',' The  man moved toward the cabin ball, and  halted wilh his finger near the button. "Now, damn you! my platform  is 'Vegas y Libertad,' and I'm not the  sucker I may have seemed. If this is  a trick of yours, you aren't going to  have the chance to turn it."  ���������������������������"Give mo a-moment,"-pleaded Saxon.  He realized with desperation that  every word the other spoke was true,  that he was helpless unless he could  be convincing,  "Listen, Rodman," he hurried on,  ready to surrender everything else if  he could carry his own point. "For  God's sake, listen to me! You trusted  me in the first place. I could have  left the boat at any point, and wired  back!" He looked Into the face of  the other man so steadily and with  such hypnotic intensity that, his own  eyes were the strongest argument of  truth he could have put forward.  "You say I have distrusted you, that  I have not admitted my identity as  Carter. I don'tcare a rap for my life.  I'm not fighting for that now. I have  no designs on you or your designs.  Let me put a hypothetical question:  Suppose you had come to a point where  your past life was nothing more to you  than the life of another man���������������������������a man  you hated as your deadliest enemy;  suppose you lived in a world that was  as different from the old 'one as though  it had never existed; suppose a woman  had guided you into that new world,  would you, or would you not, turn your  back on the old? Suppose you learned  as suddenly as I learned, from you, on  deck, that that woman was in danger,  would you, or would you not, go to  her?"  Men rarely find the most eloquent  or convincing words when they stand  at sudden crises, but usually men's  voices and manners at such times can  got you buffaloed, is it? The warrior  has been taken into camp by the  squaw." The tone held deliberate intent to" insult.  Saxon's lips compressed themselves  into a dangerously straight line, and  his face whitened to the temples. As  he took a step forward, the slighter  man quickly stepped back, arid raised  a hand with a gesture of- explanation.  Saxon" had evidently told the ' truth.  The revolutionist had satisfied himself,  and his somewhat erratic method of  judging results had been to*his own  mind convincing. And, at the same  moment, .Saxon halted. He realized  that he stood in a position where questions, of life and death, not his own,  were involved. "His anger was driving  him dangerously close to action that  would send crashing to ruin the one  chance of winning, an-* effective ally.'  He half-turned with something like a  groan,   y ���������������������������     ,>'..'"  ��������������������������� " He was called out ,of his stupor of  anxiety by the" voice of the other.-Rodman had been thinking fast.-.

If-, at the proper moment'he still be^  lieved in the other, he would'. permit  the man,-, under supervision, "to- save  these friends.' If not, Rodman" would  still.be master ,of the situation./Besides, he had been seriously disappointed in not^meeting Miraflores. "He had  felt that there, might yet be-advantages in coming closer to the-theatre  of the drama than' this vessel going  northr though he-must still remain under the protection of a'foreign flag.. '  "So you ������������������?re willing to admit that  your proper name is Mr. Carter?" he  demanded, coolly."      ^ - .  --"     - -  *  (To be continued)  THE  CAUSE  OF   EARTHQUAKES  Until very recently all earthquake  shocks were attributed to volcanic  manifestations. But often the earth  is agitated in regions where there are  no volcanoes. Hence the belief has  arisen that,earthquakes may arise independently of volcanic action. Very  often, again, when volcanoes are in  eruption  there are  no earthquakes.  Subterranean cave-ins are often the  cause of earthquakes; they are tho  consequences of the action of subterranean water. When water runs  through limestone it carves out grottoes and terraces or galleries. When  in its underground run it comes in  contact with gypsum or rock-salt it  dissolves these substances and thus  vacuums are formed in the depths of  the earth. When the water has worn  the earth thin the earth gives way and .  regions above it. In well-worked coal  mines great hollows are made which  produce similar results.  The   layers, forming   the   solid   envelope of the earth are neither homo- -  geneous     nor <��������������������������� regularly     distributed.  Limestone  hits  granite and  relatively  Limestone and schist lie together like,,  folded cloth;   layers of the same age" ,-  are   separated   by   abrupt   gaps    arid  breaks and by the debris cast out oni-  eTtherfside.  The crust of the earth has been com-' ;  pared to marquetry composed of many  parts  which  must   have  been  joined;  broken. and joined again  many time's.' *  Its component parts are unstable,.their-  movements are still in, progress; .they"  shift and possibly their sudden shifting   ���������������������������  causes the upper crust to tremble. *-  "',  The  best evidence  in favor: of this-,  explanation  is  that  the, great  earth-7*;  quakes have devastated countries where s  the geological  layers  show-traces"-of",;  cave-ins and slips.

CANNON    SHOT    PHOTOGRAPHED  Photographers  create much  amuse-  ment with photographs they make.of  themselves in various attitudes, but it  has remained for the experts of the  United States army to train 12-inch  projectiles from the heavy coast-defence guns to make pictures of themselves as they go through the atmosphere so fast the ordinary eye can  hardly trace their flight.  Experiments   of  various  sorts  have  been made in the army with a view to  photographing'.the. flight, of.shots_from  the heavy guns.   These were begun to  secure  records  of  the  splashes  made  by the shot3 falling into the water.   So  puccessful were these efforts that the  photographers were encouraged to attempt the making of a picture of a  shell as it loft the gun.    There were  immense   dilliculties   to   be   overcome,  and many pictures wero spoiled before  a method was evolved that brought the  desired  results.    The first trials were  made on the gun carriage with the recoil mechanism operating the camera.  This was found to be unsuccessful because of certain unevenness of work in  the mechanism necessarily produced in  the recoil.   Another dilficulty met was  in the blast of the discharge.   Finally,  after repeated attempts,' it was determined to makethe projectile itself operate the camera.    Electrical connection was made between the camera and  the bore of the gun so that the series  of resulting photographs would  show  the various steps in the discharge from  the   time   the   charge   of   powder   exploded  until the projectile is clear of  the gun  and well  on its way to  its  mark.   The work was done in the artillery course of the School of Enlisted  Specialists under the direction of Captain  Francis J. Behr.    The apparatus  for exposing the negative was placed  oh the sighting platform and the camera began the making of negatives the  instant the gun was fired, the exposures being made at intervals of 1-2,000  of a second.   So well did the mechanism work that several negatives were  actually made before the projectile had  travelled  the  length  of the gun  and  THE ALBATROSS AND THE GULL    -.

As might be expected, the albatross,/*.  "does-little-flappin"g=*at=any=timef:  ....  The diffehence in the proportions of.  these two birds signifies a proportional  efficiency in obtaining  deflective  sup-;  port from the wind.  When wings are comparatively flat,  like those of the two birds under comparison, that portion of their area having the greatest reflective efficiency is-  contiguous to the forward edge.  The current that has transferred its  cnergy__to _thc._wing__and_ has been der.  fleeted downward, may be termed spent  current and is henceforth not only useless but obstructive through its power-  to neutralize the reflective force of the*  sub-layers of the current that otherwise-  wouldtreflect from the lower and rearward portion of a wider wing.  The albatross cuts a wide swath, for-  he has no occasion to economize space-  and disdains to deal with any of the*  second and third grades of supportive  deflcction(that birds of wider wing pattern are required to use.  As an instance of the marvellous  efficiency of this specialized bird, the  following is worthy of credence. Over  a sea that shows no indications of wind  he will follow a steamship steaming 12  knots an hour. Poised over the  steamer's quarter without visible movement to his wings, lie will remain there  for hours with no imaginable support  but the force of the uprush of air displaced by the progress of the ship.  A certain knight of Spain, as high in  birth as a king, as catholic as the pope,  and equal to Job in poverty, arriving  one night at an inn in France, knocked  a long time at the gate till he had  alarmed the landlord. "Who is there?"  said thc host, looking out of the window. "Don Juan Pedro," replied the  Spaniard; "Hernandez, Eodriguez de  Villanova, Count of Malafra, Knight  Santiago and Alcantara." "I am very  sorry," replied tho landlord, shutting  the window, "but I have not rooms  enough in my house for all the gentlemen you have mentioned."  144 THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, August 8, 1912  City Council Preparing for an  Unusually Busy Season of Work  An unusually busy meeting of the! up.

When  Mr. Borden first came here a  fortnight ago, one section of the  community was rather suspicious  of him. Men thought that he  would visit us as a party man  talking party politics. _ He has  done nothing of the kind. He  has proved himself to be a great  statesman, and a man of great  ambitions and .great ideas for the  Empire. He has nothing to say  about purely party matters about  which Englishmen are acutely  divided. He has confined himself to one great issue���������������������������the question of Imperial defence, and on  that issue he has sounded a note  which has rung throughout the  Empire. We all know that his  visit is charged' with the greatest potentialities. Canada's lead  in Imperial defence will set the  pace for every other part of the  Empire. Already, as I write,  Australia. South Africa and New  Zealand are debating Mr. Borden's ideas, and Mr. Borden himself���������������������������quiet, businesslike, unassuming, and retiring���������������������������has in a  few days won a place in our affections from which it would be  hard to remove him.���������������������������London  Mail.
