The" banquet which will be held  in the Davis hall to celebrate Barns'  anniversary gives promise' of being  a great success. Every effort is being -. made' by the' committee, 'in  charge to have the affair resemble,  as near as possible, those historic  feasts for which the occasion is so  famous, and which do much to  keep the sons of the kilts and the  heather in close touch with the  fatherland.  No invitations are being issued,  and all whecan enjoy a night with  Burns will be given a cordial welcome. The bagpipes, the haggis and  heather, together with Highland  flings, hornpipes and sword dainces,  songs, speeches and recitations will  form part of the elaborate program.

Dairy Importations  From statistics compiled by the Grand Forks Board of Trades it  appears that the dairying industry in British Columbia is very much in  need.of being developed.

A. Mclntyre,  Frank Latham and Geo. H. Hull,  took their seats.  J. A. McCallum was elcctfH chairman of the new board and G. H.  Hull secretary. It was decided to  hold the meetings in future on - the  second Thursday of each month, at  8 p.m., in the high school building,  instead of the second Tuesday, as  has-been the- practice, heretofore.  In retiring from tbe-board, Chairman Donaldson addressed the meeting   regarding   the   work   that had  been accomplished in the  past, also  of   the   harmonious   relations  that  hadexioted between himself and the  different members of the board.  He  congratulated the trustees  on  their  choice "of   Mr.   McCallum  for the  chairmanship,   and   expressed   the  conviction that under  his  guidance  the board would   continue   to have  the   confidence   and   respect of the  citizens in the various matters  that  came before it.  The newly elected chairman, on  taking the chair, spoke of the growing importance of the schools and  the work of the trustees in connection with them; also of the various  matters that arise from time to time  regarding the management of the  schools. He stated that he felt sure  that the members of the board were  representative of the different sections of the school district, and that  the ratepayers might feel that any  question brought to the attention of  the trustees in the interest of the  schools would rf-c-ive the full st  and freest discussion and consideration by them.  The newly elected members, on  the invitation of the chairman,, addressed the meeting, expressing a  senBe of; their responsibility and a  determination to have the schools  and'their work not only a credit to  the community, but.that they shall  compare favorably with the best in  the province.  A number of routine matters being disposed of, and the monthly,  accounts passed, the board proceeded to award the contract for the  year's supply of wood. The.following tenders were received: A. E.  Hales, $4.40; J. W. Shaw, $5.00;  G. F. Transfer Co,, $4.45; Johnson  & Manly. $4.65; M. W. Elliott,  84.75; James Harris, 84.75; Nicolas  Plotnicolof, ������4.00; Fred Petersen,  84.70; John Jacobs, S5.00. The  contract was awarded to A. E.  Hales at 84.40 per cord.  Tbe chairman requested . the  trustees to have their estimates of  the required expenditure for 1914  ready by the next meeting.         The   board   then   adjourned    to  '#394,260  meet  next   in   regular [meeting on  Nearly the entire Sun force has  been suffering from an attack of the  grip during the past two weeks, and  some difficulty has consequently  been experienced in keeping the  up to its standard.

Williams, superintendent   in  charge   of   construction   at Hidden  Creek,   state   that   the   entire  mechanical  equipment, including  the  smelter, hydro-electric powej plant,  machine shops and railway system,  is completed and will begin operating January 15.    It will require not  less than two weeks.to get  the machinery adjusted, and   Superintendent Williams predicts that   permanent operations will not be inaugurated until February 1.

Warren, president of the  Kettle Valley railway, in the course  of an interview in Penticton last  week, stated that the contractors  expect to be able to inaugurate a  coast service via Merritt and Spences  Bridge late in 1914, and that the  short line via"~Hope will be ready  for operation the year following.  A fifteen-mile section of track will  be laid east of Penticton this month,  leaving a gap of less than thirty:five  miles to be linked up between Penticton and Midway. West of Penticton the 40-mile portion to Osprey  lake is entirely completed. The contract for the section west of Ospaey  lake to-Otter summit, 105 miles dis  tant from- Penticton, isexpected to  be let at an early date, and will be  rushed" to completion in order to  have it ready to afford the connecting links by the autumn. From Otter summit, 30 miles to Merritt, the  southern terminus of the Nicola  branch of the C.P.R. from Spence's  Bridge, the Kettle Valley railway  has its line already in operation.  Meteorologically speaking, the  past week has been shifted from the  middle of April to the middle of  January.  ��������� Mrs. W. A. Williams,, who has  been spending the past two months  with her, husband at Hidden Creek,  returned home this week.  ' Last  Saturday   night   wm   plav  time for a  large percentage   of   th������  male population of the city and volley.    W. F. Armstrong, manager of  tbe Big Y ranch, and August Schnit  ter   and   H. F. Broad  had  invited  their numerous friends to a smoker,  which  was   held  at  the  Big Y on  that evening.    Every one who   had  received   an   invitation     attended.  Nearly   one   hundred   men,    from  twenty-one to eighty years  of  age,  were present.    Most of  the  ranches  and business houses were  represented.    Air were royally   entertained.  An .appetizing luncheon was served,  and there was anabundanceof cigars  and liquid refreshments.  When   the   guests   reached   the  smoking  period  of  the evening an  impromptu, rr0B.r?������L\.w_a!. .a"a"gfd  by Fred Lake, who acted" as "chairman. E Coy was elected to operate the 'piano. Mr. Varcoe sang  "The Flight of Ages" in an artistic  manner, and had to respond to a  couple of encores before he was allowed to resume bis seat. Mr, Mc-  Kenzie followed with "Golden  Devon," and he was also heartily  encored. E. F. Laws surprised  everyone presented with his powerful and well trained voice, and he  was wildly applauded and compelled to respond to an encore. E.  Harrison and H F. Broad rendered  several comic and sentimental duets,  for which they rewarded with much  applause. Harry Sheads, E. Coy,  W. T. Ross, W. F. Stewart and a .  number of others also added new  lustre to their fame as vocalists  In the recitative class W. B.  Cochrane and P. T. McCallum ran  neck and neck, with Mr. Rolaton a  close second. All the other entries  were distanced at the first quarter.  In the oratorical contest Eugene  Herrick and Dan McKinnon imagined they bad won first honors,  until The. Sun peeped out from  behind a cloud of smoke and  eclipsed both of them.  As &s a matter of fact, nearly  everybody in the house contributed  something to the program, but it is  impossible to remember all . the  names. The most Important item  to impress on the mind of the reader is, that every one present had a  good time. As a result, all went  away singing the praises of the hosts.  James McArdle returned on Saturday from a week's visit to Spokane.  James Rooke, president of the  Grand Forks Fruit Growers' association, left on Tuesday for Victoria,  where he will attend the annual  convention of the British Columbia  Fruit Growers' association, which  meets in that city on the 20th inst.  The session will probably last three  or four days. THE SUN, GRAND FORKS, BRITISH COLUMBIA1.  %vqr  STUDENTS FEEL PINCH.  A CUfilOUS FEE.  Pfg'ii   Cost  ot  Living  Hard  on   tbe  Poor College Man.  Tbe high cost of living is being fsSS  by students in Canadian universities  this winter, and is giving considerable concern to young men who are  getting an education on short allowance. .In Toronto the cry is going up  from the college men that everything  Is dearer.  Rooms that in old days went for  $1.50 now fetch $2.50 or $2.75 per  week. The -:aino pea soup and lamb  mint sauce that brought S2.60 par  week a year or two ago is now $3.25  or oven M-00. The economic pro-  - fessors explain and explain, but the  new prices 'stick.  These prices of $3.25 to $4.00 per  veek for board'are in many, cases prohibitive for students working their  way through college Take the theo-  logs in'Wycliffe.

The latter intimated that  they would be heavily involved before ! he had come to say good-bye to the  the end of their college days. The lawyer, as he purposed leaving the  authorities of Wycliffe have come to' country. He was profuse in hi3  the rescue by providing board and thanks for the service, that Murray  room for only ?4 a week and free .; had rendered him, and, as he was  tuition.

When the Dominion Coal Cq^'was  formed back in the early nineties a  j - number of coal operators in Cape Bre-  ! ton wore brought out. Among thenar  Was one man who was noted for his  strong religious convictions. During  the course of the negotiations he "secured the good offices of the present  Premier of Nova Scotia, Hon. G. H.  Murray, who, besides representing  Cape Breton in the Legislative Council, Avas also a member of the Government, to conduct the case for him.  Though the purchase of this man'G  property was riot necessary to the success of the deal, but Mr. Murray was  able to have it Included, and for it he  obtained what was undoubtedly an  excelled price.  After the deal was put through  Mr. Murray was sitting in his room  at the Halifax Hotel with a couple of  friends, when the mine-owner was an-  manage to. get.along^ by going into  the restaurant business themselves in  a small way. About 25 members  have been found a convenient number  for the scheme.   ���������  A woman is hired to cook for them  and furnish a room in lier home  where they can eat:- One of their  own number is appointed buyer and  he spends a part of every day down  town picking up job lots of victuals  at bargain rates. The board for the  whole bench need not amount to  more than $2.50 per week apiece and  it has often been done for less. There  are a great many of these clubs in  operation between Avenue road and  Yonge, above and below Eloor.  One thing that seems insurmountable is the rising price of rooms. One  used to get a half decent single room,  for as low as $1.50 a week. Now it  is a very plain room that can be had  for two dollars and if it faces the  north, the sun dees not enter from  one year's end to the other.. A double room with any kind of comfort  runs as high -,s ?4 or ?5 a week.  Students complain that private  houses are hardly ever well heated  and where there is a houseful of mixed boarders and only one bath complications are bound to arise. In the  University residences that is impossible. There are showers and. tuba  in plenty and heat- is supplied ad infinitum. The-price at <he University  for a room ranges from $2.50 to  $3.50. At Knox College it is about  $5 per week for board and room and  the same at McMaster.  W. J. Dilworth, the man appointed to control, the largest Indian-reserve in Canada, has entered upon  his duties at the Agency at Slide Cut,  Alta. Mr. Dilworth will have, flome  1,200 Indians under his care, besides  a dozen or more reserve officials who  do the actual work of superintending the several activities of the band.  The Bloods are a sub-band of the  Blackfoot tribe, the last to be subdued and induced to take treaty and  settle upon a reservation.  The new agent was born at Ethel,  Ont, in 1877, He lr a graduate of  Llstowel. Ont.. high szhstzL  The future Premier's friends were  naturally curious to know what was  in the parcel, which looked very  much like a thick wad of bank bills.  To gratify their curiosity he opened  It as soon as tho man was gone, and  to his astonishment unwrapped a  Bible. Ono of his friends promptly  picked it up, and taking it by tho  back, shook it vigorously to see if  by any chance paper notes might be  hidden among the leaves. But not  a single bill dropped out. The mine-  owner had confined his recognition of.  Mr. Murray's kindly offices on his behalf to the copy of the Scriptures,  with Matthew vi.( 19 and 20 marked.  The verses read: "Lay not up for  yourselves treasure upon earth,  where moth and rust doth corrupt,  and where .thieves break through and  steal; but lay up for yourselves  treasure in heaven, where neither  moth nor rust doth corrupt, and  where thieves do not break through  and steal."  Stone  Blind  Froudly he walked - up io Ills betrothed and drew from his pocket a  small morocco case. Opening it, he  took out a ring���������a single diamond���������  and placed.it on her tapering linger.  She looked at it.  It's 'very small; she said, and not  very brilliant,  either.  Poor ��������� fallow! His smilo vanished;  but quicifiy recovering himself, he  laughed and said:  Ah, sweetheart, but love is blind!

They .were speaking of mixed conditions nlong various lines the other  night when a well-known baseball  magnate was romiuded of an incident  in a Gotham cafe.  Some time since, according to' the  story told by tho magnate,' a prosperous looking ��������� party rambled into the  cafe in question and ordered ��������� a substantial dinner.  When the layout finally'arrived the  diner gavo it a critical examination,  and then imperatively called tho Svait-  or.

Cuticura Soap  and Ointment Cured.  Cy  Warman's  New Story.  Cy Warman, Canadian by adoption, who railroads and writes novels,  has a brand new story. He applies it  to the troubles of a railroad system  with which Mr. Warman is emphatically not connected.  "The main fingers on this other  system," Baid he, "makes me think,  of the two Dutchmen."  The two Dutchmen, it appears, sat  by the roadside one day. A lean,  nervously active, excitable man leaped off the half hourly car before it  came to a full stop.  "Where���������where���������is the spaghetti  factory?" he gasped.  "They looked, at. each other, and  puffed and reflected. By-and-bye each  shook his head.  "We don't know where iss a spag-.  hetti factory," said they.  -"' The nervous man fled, bawling after the disappearing car. ' He failed  to catch it, and returned to crack his  finger joints and prance in front of  the stolid Dutchmen. The next car  came in its.dilatory course, and the  nervous man sprang on board. The  car started. Then the two Dutchmen  said: '  .    "Hey!"  The nervous man jumped off the  car, and ran back to them. The conductor gave the motorman two bells.  One of the Dutchmen fixed a calm  eye upon the nervous man.  "Did you "mean���������puff���������puff���������the  noodle factory?" he asked.  "Yes���������yes!" shouted the nervous  man. "The noodle factory! Quick!  Where is it?"  "We don't know that, cither," said  the Dutchmen.  Exchange no Robbery  Young Robinson had been kept  somewhat late at the office on Satin*  day. and so, without wasting v-i^abU-  .time getting a meal, he bought some  currant buns at a bakery p.nd set out  for the football match immediately  On his way back .-from the mate a  therefore, he returned to the bakerv  and made an indignant complaint, do  manding another bun in place of the  inhabited one. ^ .  I'm sorry, sir, said ihe saleswoman,  with a bewitching smile, but- that, I  am afraid, is impossible. However, if  you care to rpturn the fly. we shall be  only too glad to exchange it for a  currant.  Lyons Brook, N. S. ��������� "I suffered with  sczema for three years.

In a certain New Brunswick county, where the members of the County  Council served without any sessional  fndemnity, Councillor B. was defeated  in a contest in the parish of C, and  at the next Bession the councillors  Toted themselves $3 per day.  In the next election Councillor B.  was returned for the parish of C.  by acclamation; and at the following  Bession it was proposed to Increase  the allowance to $5.  Councillor B. supported the resolution. He believed, he said, that his  services were worth $6 per day to the  electors of the parish of C, and that  If he had not thought bo he would  not have offered his aervlces.  "Mr. Warden," said a member who  was opposing the increase, "there is  nothing in that. Three years ago  Councillor B.' offered his services to  the electors of his parish for nothing,  and they rejected him,"  Herbert Cpcr.csi and the Puddles.

' Then my trouble was complicated with rheumatism, which became so bad tliat I had to bo lifted  like a child, nnd the pain was almost  unbearable.     I was iu this deplorable  condition when my husband read  of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and got me  a supply.

Queer Tricks of Memory  In later life Emerson's memory played him some strange tricks. James  Cabot, his biographer, says that he  met him one day in the streets of Boston apparently at a loss for something  and asked him where he was going.  To dine, said Emerson, with an old  friend. I know where she lives but  I hope you'won't ask me her name.  Then he went on to describe her as  the mother of the wife of the young  man���������the" tall mar.���������who speaks so  well, and so on until Cabot guessed  "to whom he was referring. This failing  led to a pathetic scene at Longfellow's  funeral.

B.C  FRIDAY, JANUARY 16,  1914  CITY PARAGRAPHS  The Grand Forks hockey club defeated Greenwood tonight at Greenwood by a score of 3 goals-to 2 in  the first game played by the home  team this season. A large crowd, of  enthusiasts accompanied the club  to Greenwood in a special train.  The opinion appears to be  general among the citizens  that the new council is composed of capable and far-  sighted men; that it is, in fact,  one of the strongest city governments yet chosen by the  electors. In this opinion The  Sun coincides. Under the  guidance of these men the  city should prosper and expand during the next twelve  months. But while entertaining a high opinion of the incoming council, we do .not  wish to have it inferred that  we belittle the services rendered the city by the retiring-  council. That body was made,  up of men of ability, and they  carried the city safely through  a very trying period of its  history. For this they are  entitled to 'the thanks and  good-will of the people of the  community.  The* last regular meeting of the  old council was held in the council  chamber on Monday night, when  the business of the year was com-'  pleted, A short special session was  held last night to consider the sale  of some city lots.

The "federal parliament is  once more in session. The  members will soon again be  indtiling in long and tiresome  speeches on the naval question, when they might employ  their time to better advantage  by devising wa}rs of lowering  the cost of living by reducing  ,the tariff on foodstuffs.

Mrs.  Una  Armstrong,  Olney,   BucWs  ENGLAND  Seed Grain and Potatoes  By instructions of the Hon. Minister  of Agriculture a distribution of superior sorts of grain and potatoes will be  mado during tbe coming winter and  spring to Canadian farmers. The samples for general distribution will consist of spring wheat (5 lbs), wbite  oats (4 lbs.); barley (5 lbs.), and field  peas (5 lbs.) These will bo sent out  from Ottawa. A distribution of potatoes (in 8 lb. samples) .will be carried on from soveral of the experimental farms, the Central Farm at Ottawa  supplying only the provinces of Ontai'-  and Quebec. All samples will be sent  free, by mall. ���������  Applicants must give particulars, in  regard lo the soil on their farms, and  some account of their experience with  such-kinds of grain (or potatoes)-as  they have grown, so that a promising  sort for their conditions may bo selected.  . Each application must bo separate  and must be signed by the applicant.  Only one sample of grain and one of  potatoes can bo sent to each farm.  Applications on any kind of printed  form cannot be accepted. If two or  moro samples are 'asked for in the  same letter only one will be sent.  As the supply of seed is limited, farmers are advised to apply early; but  tho applications will not necessarily  be filled in tho exact order in which  they are lecolved. Preference will  always be given to the most 'thoughtful and explicit requests. Applications received after the end of January  will probably bo too late.  Alt applications for grain (and applications from the provinces of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes) should  be addressed to the' Dominion Cereal-  ist, Central 'Experimental Farm, Ottawa. Such applications require no  postage. If otherwise addressed delay and disappointment may occur:  Applications for potatoes, from farmers in any other province should be  addressed (postage prepaid) to the Superintendent of the nearest branch,  of the Experimental Farm in 'that province.  CAUGHT  LIONS WITH   FLYPAPER  The  Beasts "Entangled  by  Thousands  of Sheets Were Lassoed  Not long ago four man-eating lions  were caught by flypaper at tho village  of Gwallor, India.  It happened that the head man of  the village was able to shut the four  lions up in a hut into which they had  ventured in search of-prey. He kept  them thus^barricaded for nearly two  weeks, no one being willing to attempt  to capture them. Finally he thought  of a scheme that proved as successful  as it was original.  He had thousands of sheets of flypaper spread on the ground before the  entrance to the hut. Then suddenly-  the barricades were lifted and the  lions came bounding out���������into the flypaper. Of course it stuck to their  paws,.and when they tried to lick it off  it stuck to their faces and heads. The  lions promptly forgot all about human  beings, and in their wild endeavors to  get rid of the flypapers, rolled over  aud over on the ground, roaring and  fighting for breath. Then the head  man and his followers rushed forward  with long ropes, lassoed" the plunging lions and tied them up���������flypaper  and all.  .22.

" ���������  -  Mr. Silas-Jones, who was traveling  nbroad with his fahil.ly and sojourning  at-.a London hotel, looked as solemn  ns if his lordship bad asked  for his  daughter to cut off her head, no slowly  turned his eyes up at the ceiling, then  lowered them to the floor, while his ���������  face indicated that he was suffering  from a paiu In his stomach.   Presently,  Kfter clearing his throat, ho said:  - "I assure you, my lord, that I am  sensible of the honor you, a peer of the  realm of England, do  me in asking  for the hand of my daughter. But there  Is a reason wby it would bo better  that you  should   withdraw   your  request.    While it is true that I can  make settlements   upon   Sophia  that  would enable ber to uestorc Flammer-  ton  castle,   she   would   bring  a   bar  sinister to your family arms.   It is not  proper that so noble a lineage as yours  should be murred by a marriage with  one who is not only'a commoner, but  Who has descended from a criminal."-  j  His lordship remained silent.  ! "Tea. my lord, a criminal," continued  tho other.    "Roger Jones, my greatgrandfather, In 1703 was convicted of  Bulling rum to tho American Indians,  V70S tarred and feathered, ridden on a"  tail and hanged to an apple tree."  '. Mr. Jones groaned not only in spirit,  but  audibly.     Lord   Flammerton   sat  . tvatching him with a curious expression on his face, nis lordship" did  not seem so appalled at receiving thla  that he was merely .in assistant at the  murder."  Tho earl paused in the recital, and  Mr. Jones gave rent to an expression  of disappointment.  "The Hunkers," tho former presently  Continued, "became noble In the time oJC  Henry VIII. I have unearthed a bit of  secret history from the records stored  hi tbe Tower of London which reveals  tho fact that when King Henry VIIL  beheaded Catharine Howard the state  executioner had just died, and no one  could be found to do the job until  Henry offered Andrew Hunker a bnr-  anetcy if he would wield the ax over  Ihe unfortunate queen. Hunker contented and was made Baron Worrlng-  ton. Then when-Henry made a wholesale confiscation of the church property  he created the baron a sort of sheriff  to eject the clergy and seize their belongings. Tho commission that my noble ancestor received, for this amounted to a large fortune and enabled him  to tako higher rank, which was conferred upon him iu tho title I bear.  "I have been some time getting to  the story of my immediate progenitors,  but a candid statement of the'ease has  rendered necessary the details 1 have  given.  j , "Andrew Hunker made ducks and  drakes with his fortune, and his grandson, Andrew, carl of Flammerton, was  forced to take to "the road to get a  living. Don't understand that there  was an especial taste in the family  ' for robbery. The calling was at that  time ono that Invited the more adventurous young men. Tho carl was  one day riding alone near the estates  of a country gentleman named Forbes  when he met a young lady, Elizabeth  Forbes, who was. out hunting with her  falcon. This young robber, who was  more on the Robin Hood order, became at onco enamored of the young  lady, but unfortunately for the success  of his suit he had recently plundered  her home, and her father bad sworn  to bring him to tbe gallows.  "On tho occasion of this first meeting  between .the highwayman earl and  Elizabeth. Forbe3.he took a gold chain  from about her' neck, saying at the  eame.time:  " 'Tell your father, who has sworn to  hang me, that I will return this chain  to you iu his own home.'  ''With that.he bent low before the  lady, took the tips of her fingers in bis  and kissed her hand. Now, this young  fellow was a handsome rascal, and no  calling was more popular with the  ladies of that day than the profession  of highwayman. Mistress Forbes  straightway fell In love with the'man  who had robbed her and trembled at his  boast that he would return her chain  to her under her father's.nose. Eeing  discreet, she returned to her home and  said nothing about the meeting.

Manufactured on  butter-paper  by  convicts in Peterhead prison, imita-.  tion banknotes were the cause of a  sensational error;   Many residents in  the town possess little specimens of  convicts' skih and ingenuity in the  shape of soap models or clever bits of  carving,   which   reach   the   outside  world apparently   through   the me-.  diuni of workmen who come into contact with convicts in the course of  their labor.    Over a year ago  theso  prison relics took a new force.     A  man  in  the  town was showing  his  friends, quite openly, a copy of a ������1  banknote which, he said, had been  made by one of the convicts.   Those  who saw it were interested, but did  not dream that any such counterfeit  , could bo taken seriously, for it was  1 crude hi color and design, and only  . noteworthy as a clever piece of pen-  ��������� manship and of memory, for the man  could not have had a genuine note  before him when making the copy.  More of these  copies began  to  get  about tho town, and were shown-as  prison curiosities. At least one changed hands for money, but only a few  coppers were paid for it, and it was  obvious that   no   one   regarded the  notes  as  anything but  crude  relics  of prison life.   Thus this rather dan  question,   'Whence   come3   the   name  Mcphistopheles ?'"  According to one theory it was a by- '  brid Greco-Hebraic formation of me-  phis and tophel (the liar); according  to'another its etymology was entirely  Greek���������very  dubious   Greek���������mephos-  tophilos, "he who does not love the '  light"   Though this derivation is hardly acceptable, it appears that this was  the original form of the name, the sec- .  ond vowel being replaced by,-1 at first  in England, whence it was taken into  tho popular German mysteries.  In the "Goethe Jahrbuch" Here  Oelhke gives an entirely novel derivation which, if farfetched, has at least  the merit of originality. It-is based on  two names found in chapters 4 and  15 ot the second book of Samuel,  Pephiboscbctu and Architophel. Ho  reminds lis that it was customary in  the middle ages when giving names to  evil spirits to refer to the Old Testament; hence the combination "Mcphistopheles."  The explanation is not perceptibly  more absurd than others. Goethe himself had a trick of using tho abbreviated form Mephisto when it suited  the exigencies of his meter. It may be  remembered that .this particularly ir>  : ritalcd Schopenhauer, who wrote in his  pamphlet "On the Murder (Verhnn-  zung) of the German Language," "The  foolish desire for brevity goes so far  as to cut off-oven the devil's tail by  writing Mephisto for Mepbistophcles."-  ���������Westminster Gazette..

Instead of taking up bis hat  ttnd bidding Mr. Jones good morning,  he Bat'quietly where he was, fumbling  ^vllh his watch chain, waiting for the  i>aroxysra to subside; then he said:  "Permit me to commend you, Mr.  Jones, for your candid confession.

There Is no dress bettor fitted to show  off a handsome figure than that of this  official of that period. Tbe man, instead of carrying a wooden ax. held  In his hands a veritable steel weapon  such as was used in lopping off human  heads.   ;'    '-.".'."  "The moment Elizabeth Forbes saw  this person she recognized in his figure  ���������his face was masked���������the robber earl.  He advanced toward her and, throwing a gold chain about her neck, asked  her to dance. She accepted the invitation, trembling for him, for though he  was armed with an as, many of the  men guests present wore swords or  were provided with other weapons  suited to the characters they represented.  "The presence of this fantastic personage was noted by the guests, and'it  was not long before the host's, attention was called to him. The robber  perceived that, he would soon be  obliged to give an account of himself  and in a few quick sentences begged  ���������Elizabeth to fly with him. She consented.on condition that he would go  -at once, thinking to get him out of  danger, and when they saw her father  advancing to ask who this unknown  guest might be she slipped her arm in  Ms, and the two were passing out  when Forbes, followed by others of his  guests, pushed after them. Tho earl  turned and, raising his ax, brought It  down on the host's head, splitting his  skull. Several men who wore swords  drew tbem, and there was a combat,  in which tho earl put them out of the  fight Then, drawing Elizabeth with  him, he disappeared in the darkness.  "Tbero Is no record of a marriage between Andrew II tinker, the robber  carl, and Elizabeth Forbes, but sineo  she was a commoner and he a noble It  Is quite possible that she did not expect marriage. However, she bad a  eon���������my grandfather���������who was declared legitimate by King Charles II. and  given bis father's title and property,  tho latter consisting of plunder acquired on tho road. It is quite possiblothat  tbo king's favor was gained from tho  fact that Elizabeth Forbes became ono  of bis favorites, though she is not  given in thejist by historians.

English  readers must remember that the Scottish banknote has not the clean ciisp-  ness of the Bank of-England "fiver,"  it remains in circulation much longer,  and gets crumpled and dirty in passing  from  hand  to  hand.     Often  it  looks only like a dirty piece of paper, and it Is not difficult to believe  that one of these prison-made copies,  ���������when sufficiently dirty,   might   easily pass into circulation by accident.  The notes of several banks were imitated.; There was a ������5 note of the  Union   Bank    and ������1   notes   of   the  Royal National North of Scotland and  the Town and County Banks.    For  the convicts to obtain the materials  with which to manufacture the notes  is an easy matter.    The paper is of  the variety in which butter is wrapped, and is used inside   the   prison  walls.   As for pen3 and ordinary ink,  every convict can obtain them.   Soot,  which any convict working near the  kitchens or other fires could easily  get, would provide a deep black, and  it is thought the designer of these  notes used his own blood for such  parts of the notes as became a dirty  red in use.    Thus an ingenious convict has all  his  materials  to- band.  The prisoners of Peterhead also have  a channel through which, it is-well  known, they   communicate   with the  outside world.    A number of them  are engaged in building a breakwater,  and  on this  work  come  in  contact  with many "free laborers," or workmen who aro not convicts.     It has  been found over and over again that  some of these free laborers give the  convicts tobacco to chew���������of course,  smoking is  too  easy of  detection���������  and it is now certain thai; these laborers have been the channel through  which   tbo   counterfeit   notes   have  reached the outside world.

The ball went up and up  until it was visible only as a liny  speck.  "With the crack of. the bat tho runner on second had started for home,  and he crossed the plate beforo the  ball began to fall. Buck Ewing, Cincinnati's first baseman; McPbee, who  played second, and 'Germany' SmiUv  the shortstop, all gathered between  first and second awaiting for the ball  to drop. Wilmot sped around tho  bases at top speed and passed third as  the ball fell just inside the triangle of  waiting iufielders.  "The ball struck the hard-earth of  the base line and bounded high in the  air, Ewing having to wait for it to descend a second time before he could,  make the throw home. ������������������Wilmot slid  around-the plate and was safe, having  won the game with a home run on an  infield fly, a feat which has never been  duplicated in professional baseball."    .

Frederick Wiuthroo Thayer of Co-  basset, Harvard '78, captain of tlve  famous varsity nines of 187G, 1S77  and 1878, was the iuveutor of tb^  catcher's mask. The days when Thayer i  entered Harvard baseball differed  somewhat from the present. A pitcher  had to throw underhanded and lend  his throw with arm stretched out.  Then that changed, and as a consequence the ball was thrown much'  more swiftly. Dr. Harold O. Ernst, a  professor in tho Medical school, wad  pitcher on the varsity nine, aud James  A.
