The hall had  been prettily decorated for the occasion, a ��������� prominent <- re of the  .decorations being a large and excellent picture of "Bobby"  When the banqueters en < d the  hall,' . preceded by the pipers, at  about'9' o'clock, the numerous tables presented a veritable fairyland  of blooming flowers and immaculate  linen., The feast was all that could  ���������beI desired, and the quality of. the  viands and delicacies, and,the manner in which they were served, did  much credit to that well known caterer, James West.  After the feaoters had devoured  the bubllyjocks and jumbled cranberries, a novelty occurred in the  service of the next course. Haggis  was served " wi' a' the honours.  Scotland's national dish entered  the hall, borne aloft by W. C. Mclnnis, who was headed by the  pipers playing a national air. After  circling around the room three or  ��������� four times he look it to Chairman  R. Campbell, who blessed the dish  and ordered "it distributed to the  various tables. After the feast had  come to an end a long program of  speech-making,recitations and music  was carried out.  After the toast to the King had  proposed, and all present had joined  in singing "God Save the King,"  Wm. Carter responded to the toast  "Bobby Burns." Mr. Carter paid  an eloquent and beautiful tribute to  the memory of Scotland's immortal  bard. He reviewed his life and  praised the heritage he had handed  down to posterity. The speaker  was followed by a song by E. Coy,  who was compelled to respond to an  encore.  "Our Empire" was proposed by  S. G. Kirk. Mr. Kirk dwelt at  length on the immensity of the empire; spoke of the just laws that.prevail wherever Britannia rules, and  every citizen should be proud to  owe allegiance to it. H. L. McKen-  z'e responded to the toai-t. His ancestors had inhabited various sections of the empire, and therefore  his loyalty could not be questioned.  Pipers Chas. Ctewart, of Nelson,  and Dan McDonald, of Grand Forks,  followed with a selection on the  bagpipes.  "Our Fair Dominion" was proposed by Frank Hutton. The speaker said that the Canadians did not  appear to realize the wonderful resources of their own   country,   He  ;connection with the   lumber  industry, wheat growing, and the population .the country, was capable of sus-  Spi -taining.    Neil McCallum, who   rei  \!sponded/made.an eloquent speech.  U He dwelt on the   fact' that Canada  was an empire   within - itself,   and  quoted many eminent authorities to  support'of his views.    _'/  A violin' solo by Mr. Ross was the  next number on the program. Mr.  Ross had to respond to an encore.  Jeff Davis rendered a song,in such  a meritorious manner that he was  also compelled tojruake' a second  appearance.' R. A. Brown's sword  dance was keenly watched, and he  was rewarded by an avalanche of ap  plause. '  /  In proposing .the toast,' "The  Scot iu Canada," 1\ A. Mclntyre reviewed the struggles of the early  Scotch settlers in this country. He  spoke at considerable length, and  wasattentively listened to. .J. D.  Campbell, who responded to the  toast, spoke along, the same lines.  During the course of his speech he  interpolated several amusing anecdotes characteristic of the Scotch  race.  E. Coy followed with a song, and  he was heartily, applauded. A violin solo by Mr. Brewer was encored, as was also a selection on the  bagpipes.  - "Grand Forks and District" .was  proposed by E. C. Henniger. He  madeone of-the best speeches of-the  evening, and after' reviewing the  advancement made by the city and  district since his arrival here, he  took a decidedly optimistic view of  the future. He made the important  announcement that he felt sure a  start would be made this summer in  paving the streets of the city. ��������� John  Donaldson responded. He was  equally confident of the future of  the community. The Union mine  was the best in the country, and he  predicted a great boom for Franklin  camp next summer. If the pessimists would take take note of the  improvements mad6 in the district  6ince his arrival here, they would  take a brighter view of the future.  Mr. Cadoo rendered a song in an  artistic manner. He is the possessor of a clear and well trained voice,  and he bad to respond to an encore.  A selection from the bagpipes followed.  "Our Industries" was proposed  by G. M. Fripp. After recounting  what bad been accomplished indus-  tr ally in the district, and predicting  greater achievements for the future,  he proceeded to make a very clever  and witty after-dinner speech. He  was frequently interrupted by applause. W. M. DeCew responded  to this toast. The cannery, he  said, was now au accomplished  fact, and the prospects of securing a  creamery and a pulp mill during  present year were good. He assured those present that the Western Pine Lumber company would  increase its capacity whenever the  demand for lumber warranted such  a step being taken.  A selection by the pipers followed.  John Donaldson sang "Annie  Laurie" in such a pleasing manner  that he was overwhelmed with applause. E. Coy also rendered a  song, and was rewarded with applause.  R. A. Brown delivered one of his  usually optimistic speeches regarding the future of the mining indus  IEW BOARD MEETS  1914 Council Organizes by  the Appointment of Per-  -  manent Committees"  LOCALPARAGRAPHS LEADER HERE  NEXT WEEK  One of the City's Old-Timers  Removed to the Coast  This Week  The first meeting of the new city  council was "held in the council  chamber on Monday night, Mayor  Gaw and Aid.

"Owing to the fact that nearly all  aldermen wished to attend the Burns  baoquet, the session was short, and  not a great deal of busiuebs was  transacted with the "exception of  organizing the various permanent  committees.

CURLINGBONSPIEL  If the Weather Is Favorable  the Event Will be Held  Here Next Week  figures used by Mr. Brown had a tendency to amaze some of those present. From the present outlook in  Franklin camp, however,Mr. Brown  may yet be proved a true prophet.  "The Press" was responded to by  The Sun man. The speaker said:  "Mr. Chairman and Fellow Scotchmen: My intimate acquaintance  with the Scotch tonight has, I feel  sure, given me the privilege of ad- jf the weather permits, the an-  dressing you in this fashion; and, in nuaj bonspiel of the Boundary  passing, I may say that the liquid Curling clubs will commence in this  Scotch tastes almost as good as the' cjtv on Tuesday next.

After throwing up his hands in  despair and calling for aid when  three carloads of ore iin 20-ponnd  packages, shipped by parcel post,  were handed him to deliver recently, the contractor who handles the  mail between Stites and Elk City,  Idaho, is expected to succumb when  he begins to receive from Spokane a  50,000 pound parcel post shipment  of groceries over the same route.  Stites is on the railway and Elk  City is not, and the parcel post  shipments are carried sixty miles by  a government mail carrier between  the two points. He has been using  light wagons, but may have to  engage a battery of authmobile  freighters if business picks up.  The grocery shipment comprises  1000 50-pound packages, and goes  at the rate of 54 cents for 50 pounds.  To top it off, it is understood the  Elk City retailer expects to have dry  goods and hardware suppliesshipped  in by parcel post from Spokane.  The Lyric Dramatic club will give  a masquerade ball in the opera  house on February 12.  R. Campbell will leave tomorrow  for a business trip to the East Koot-  enay country.  Preparations .for the board of  trade "smoker" in the Davis hall  on February 14 are now well under  way, and the indications are that it  will be an unqualified success. An  effort will be made to induce Fred  Starkey, of Nelson, president of the  associated boards, to come over and  deliver a speech. ������HE SUN, GRAND FORKS.

One day I  heard him complaining, and with jus-  lice, that he was ashamed to go to any  place of worship on Sunday.- There's  no chance of my getting a new suit  this year, he told me. Dad's out of  work, and it t'.kes all my wages to  pay the rent. I thought the matter  over, aud then took a sovereign from  my carefully hoarded savings and  bought the boy a stout, warm suit of  ���������blue cloth, lie was so grateful Lhat  I felt repaid for my sacrifice. Eut the  next day he didn't come to work. I  met his mother in the. street and asked her the reason. Why, Mr. Lip ton,  she said, curtseying, Jimmie looks so  respectable, thanks to you, sir, that I  thought I would send him round town  today io see if he couldn't get a bettor  "job.

Finally the views of ten-  year-old Johnny were sought.  What 'ud I do if I owned the  world? said he, looking up' from" a  geography he had been studying. Well  I'll tell you what I'd do. First I'd  get old Atlas lo sign up two baseball  teams among his brothers and cousins,  then I'd lay out a liamond on the desert of Sahara, put the Rocky-mountains around.it for a fence, give the  players the moon for a ball and the  north pole for a bat, and say, maybe  I wouldn't sit on lop of Pikes peak  and see some ball game.

Well, you see, one night we coaxed  and teased and begged and pleaded  with, her to favor us with a song, and  after that we decided never to do it  dgain.  Why, did she still refuse?  No, she gave in.  How he got It  Judge���������Jack Jimson. must have had  j. substantial raise.   " '-"  Jim���������How's-that?  Jack���������<He's bought a new. car.

Goetl and Stage Animals  Goethe severed his connection with  the Weimar theatre owing to the appearance of an. animal on the "stage.  For twenty-seven years he ruled there  as a despotic director. The direction,  he wrote-to his chief assistant, act's  according to its own views and not in  the least according to the demands of  the public. ��������� Once for all understand  that thn public must be controlled.  Owing to the suppression of approval  or disapproval by the ^ublic only the  court and the "Jena students continued  to attend the theatre.  The crash came when Duke Karl  August invited an act r who had scored heavily with a performing poodle in  'The Dog of Montargis' to play at Weimar. After the first rehearsal he declined to have anything more to do  with a theatre the boards of which had  been desecrated by the presence of  an s.nlmal. 4  IClGStl]  Legion of  Honor  Members-of the-Frenc'.i Legion of  Honor are so numerous in France lhat  the once hlghly-pr'zpd little strip of  red ribbon7 has almost ceased to be  a mark of particular distinction. During recent' years a number of prominent Frenchmen have even refused it,  saying that they preferred not to hnve  a decoration rather, than accept one.  which had become so common. Almost all the other French orders have  shared a similar fate.

Baden Powell showed a  marked arlistic skill when yet a child.  His family treasures a'spiiited drawing which he mad-> of some Arab?  leading camels through the desert.  The leader was represented leaving  pieces of paper to mark hi:, track for  those who were following. Thus early  the head of the boy scout movement  showed his scouting intuition. As a  boy of 12 ho had made a collection of  excellent sketches which his mother  showed to Ruakin, expressing concern  however, that her son drew with his  left hand. Tho master, after examining the sketches with evident pleasure, said: Ma-lam, let you b_oy draw  with which hand ho likes. The general has remained ambidextrous -and  encourages scout? lo cultivate this useful faculty.  ��������� of Robert Louis Stevenson's  contemporaries describes tho author:  His hair was smooth and parted in the  middle and fell b&i���������w the collar of  his coat; he wore a black flannel shirt  with, a curious knitted tie twisted in  a knot, dark trousers, a pea jacket  and a white sombero hat.

No one supposed  the actual turbid river water to -be  meant, but no one could explain the  proverb until De Rosthorn, who wro'e  an interesting treatise on Chinese lev.  solved the problem or thought he did--  De Rosthorn was once crossing the  Yangtze near its mouth, at CheiiK-  lang. when he "saw spme men in a bo.'f  dipping water in to,-'buckets. He in  ���������quired why they did lhat and was told  that at the bottom of the bay there  was dry land, and lhat this spring  water was highly esteemed in cookery.

Thornton of Armstrong^collegej globular lightning descends slo :Iy from a  cloud, generally after "a violent clap of  thunder, in the form of a brilliant blu-.  ish .ball.

Thornton believes with reason that  globular lightning is made up principally of .mass of. ozone. This hypothesis explains why the color of the  ball, is usually bluish, why the .luminous mass descends slowl. through  the ahy-ozoue being of a <".ensityraboul  J..7 times_ that "of air, and'flnally why  the instantaneous disappearance of tha  ball is accompanied by an explosion,  for the .Transformation, of, ozone into  oxygen - liberates a great-quantity"?off  energy.

Chicago  Greasy Ointments No  Use���������Must  Be Cured Through The Blood  - It is not a good thing for people with  a tendency to have pimples and a  blotchy complexion to smear themselves with greasy ointments. In fact  they couldn't do anything worse, because, the grease clogs the pores of  the skin, making the disease worse.-  When there is an-irritating rash a  soothing bpracic wash may help allay  the pain or' itching, but of course it  doesn't cure .the trouble. Skin complaints arise from an impure condition  of tho blood and will persist until the  blood is purified. Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills have cured many cases of eczema' and' skin diseases because they  make new, rich blood that drives out  the impurities, clears the .skin. and. imparts a glow of health. The following proof is offered.; Mrs. Fred  Tremble, Gunteiy Ont. says: "For  more than a year I was steadily afflicted with salt rheum, or eczema. My  hands were so sore that I could not  put them in water without the skin  cracking open. I tried all-sorts of  ointments recommended for the trouble, but they did not do me a particle  of good. I was told Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills would cure the trouble, and-began taking them. I took' the Pills  steadily for six or 'eight weeks and  they completely cured .the trouble.

Discovery of Old Boat  The hull of an old timbered ship, uncovered near Woolwich, convinces an-  tirtuarians that the discovery is nothing less than the remains of the famous sixteenth century. British warship, the Great Harry. Seymour Lucas, the historical painter, says that  two wheels of a gun carriage of the  rein of Henry VIII, or early in the  reign of Elizabeth, together with stone  cannon balls and pieces -of-Ellzabeth-  ian pottery, all tak. i from the hull,  all prove tho accuracy of the statement  and,adds 'that there was a dock built  in ll)12 in Woolwich, where the Great  Harry was probably lying -when destroyed.  No ship is now In existence earlier  than Nelson's flagship, the Victory, recalling to Englishmen Brittania's  early navy, and very probably steps  will be taken to preserve the hull as a  relic.  One of, the most soul-distressing accidents that can befall one is a bad  ankle or wrist sprain. "If I had only  known of 'Nerviline' earlier, I could  have saved myself an enormous  amount of pain and many agonizing  nights of sleeplessness." Thus writes  P..P. Quinn.  ��������� "I tumbled from a hay loft to tire  barn floor and sprained my right ankle  and left wrist. They swelled rapidly  and .caused excruciating pains. It was  not convenient to go to the city, and  the liniment in the house was useless.  When I got Nerviline relief came  quickly. It took down the swelling,  relieved the pain, and gave me wonderful, comfort.  "  "I cau recommend Nerviline for  strains, bruises, swellings, muscular  pains, and sore back. I have proved  it a cure in such cases."  Think what it might some day mean  to you to have right in ,-your home,  ready for an accident or emergent  sickness, a bottle or two of Nerviline.

Two Headings  A well known Parisian anliquary  while on his holidays in Normandy  came across an old farm which had a  curious carving in the form, of an armorial bearing over one of tho stable  doors. Beneath the carving was a  wooden bar inscribed with a date.  Examining it closely,- he found the  latter to be 1081. All his antiquarian''passions were aroused, needless  to say, and after some bargaining the  farmer sold him the carving for quite  a nice sum. The next day tho farmer brought Ihe trouvaille to the antiquary's villa. This isn't what I  bought! exclaimed the purchaser. It  bears The date of 1801: I don't want  it. "Excuse mo. sir, replied the  farmer, it.'s the Fame, right enough.  But the farmer who recently repaired  it replaced the bar upside down, and  I thought I ought to put it right for  you. The antiquary was sporty  enough not to go back on his bargain  but the facts of tho case do not seem  to pnenk highly, of .his antiquarian  knowledge.

How Sunday  Reached the  Frontier  High principle and humor have ever  made an irresistible combination. Early merchants on the'American1 frontier  conspicuously failed'in the observance  of Sunday; therefore, when a young  New Jersey trader,' who had settled at  Louisville, Ky., closed his store on the  first Sunday after it was opened there  was much ado in tho town. Other establishments kept open���������had he noticed it? he was asked. Yes, he  knew it. Why did he close? He  was the first to Co so; ho must know  that also.  Why, .said a facetious merchant  Sunday hasn't yet crossed the mountains.  Yes, it has, declared 'the newcomer,  pleasantly.     I brought it with me.  That simple and ready- reply proved  more effective than any amount of argument, and although he was the first  to .observe the day in low:-, he soon  had many followers in Sunday closing.

Tii '���������'$ father, he said, the-ol.l fellow with the saucer shaped scar on  the tip of his nose. All Japs of tho  older generation have that scar.  Yes? said the debutante. ���������  Yes, it's a vaccination mark. In the  old days, when compulsory vaccination  first began, we Japs vaccinated every  body on tho tip of tho nose. Why?  Well, because it was a good' place  where there's no movement to rub off  the scab, and also because a vaccination scar on the nose was easily identified by the medical officers of the  government. A man didn't have to  take off half his clothes in order, to  prove lhat'he had been vaccinated.

Buddha taught  tha.t the cause of suffering is des're,  and therefore the priests of the Shin-  gon. a Japanese sect of Buddhism,  kindle a fi>e to consume all human desires, at the same time offering praj*-  ers to Aealanatha. In onp matter the  rite may be said to defeat its own ends  for it attracts a crowd of farmers full  of desire to obtain embers or ashes  from the fire which is supnosed to have  consumed all desires. The tradition  is that the possession of an ember or  ashes from the sacred fire insures a  farmer good crops the next autumn.  The Montenegrins are a primitive  peode.

There aro tiny hairs, on the  feet of this insect, so fine that they  cannot be seen, that aro arranged io  collect air. The amount collected in  and about these hairs is sufficient to  allow the insect to float or walk on  tho surface of the watch As each'  foot is put down it forms a cuplike depression or tiny pit in tho water. Tho  foot does not sink because the air bubble that has been formed is too light  to let It. A fine covering of hair protects the water spider, too, and even if  it Is submerged in the water It is never really wee. The hair keeps a layer of air between its body aud the water. It looks like a white pearl when  below tho turface. The scientific  name of this curious insect is the Vel-  ia currens.

Woodland  & Quinn  The Rexall Drug-gists-  J  A modern philosopher says  that many a woman takes her  first step in a divorce suit at  a public dance. A great many  sermons are preaohed on the  social evil, but few ministers  trace it back to its origin.  Has the government press  nothing more to offer in defense of the administration it  is hired to support than that  Mr. Brewster arid his support:  ers arb "knocking" the province? Surely this is not earning the money! In the year  1911-12, according to the public accounts, the management  of the Colonist, 'Yanconver  jSTews-AdAertiser and Nanai-  mo Herald, received through  various agencies more than  $100,000. The names of these  journals are distributed freely  throughout the public accounts report for the year  1912-13, While tbis may account for the local paper's  tacit approval of the delay in  beginning works promised a  year ago, it scarcely justifies  have been here tooight. "Bobby"  Burns' name would have been  known only to a few scholars, and  an irreparable loss would have been  sustained by the million and millions of paop'le who'have been instructed, entertained and amused,  moved to tears and laughter, by the  philosophy, pathos and humor of  his songs. But passing from the  grave to the gay, I have no hesita  tion in saying that the modern  newspaper is the most useful article  that enters the household.' The  larger sheets are used extensively in  the manufacture of patterns for  ladies' dresses, while the smaller  ones, after roasting the head of the  family, are often placed under the  carpet, where they keep the teet of  the whole family warm. It can  thus readily be seen that they perform the beneficent service of keeping both ends warm, and it is a well  known fact that when the extremities are warm the whole body is  superheated. Every housewife  knows that the newspaper is invaluable for lighting the kitchen  fire in the morning, and it is also  highly prized by the Chinese laun-  dryman for wrapping paper. It is  sometimes read by the people, and  for this reason it it;, I presume, on  special occasions printed in red.  When I was a youth, working on  my father's farm the ladies in select  society used the papers for enlarging  their bustles, but since the hobble  skirt came into general use they  have, of course, been   relegated to a  "The Ladies" was proposed , by  Dr. Acres and responed to by Dr.  Averill.--<Both gentlemen did ample  justice to the subject.    .

They did  not give their secret away by setting  up the hue and^cry that nesting birds  usually set up'on such occasions. I  finally saw them, as silent as shadows  perched near by, with food in their  beaks, which 'choy finally swallowed  .as my stay was prolonged. And the  ' nests, both on a level with my eye,  were apparently.jilled .only" with a motionless mass of bluish mold. ��������� As I  gently touched'them, instead of four  or five heads with open-mouths springing up, the young only settled lower  in the nest and disposed themselves in  a headless, shapeless mass. The  phoebe is evidently a very cautious  bird, though no birds are more familiar about our porches and outbuildings.

Old Time Doctors' Fees  Army doctors' fees in tho seventeenth century in Europe were rather  niodest. During the civil war, for instance, the physician general of Cromwell's army received $2.50 a day, the  apothecary general $1.50., tho surgeon general $1.00 and his two assistants 50c. Then camo tho inevitable  economist, whoso deeds C. H. Firth  summarized thus iu a Cornhtll article  of March, 1901:"In 1651 the surgeon's  pay rose to $1.50 a day; in 1650 it was  fixed at. $1.25, and the economics cut  off one of his mates. In 1657 his pay  was again reduced to $1 a day.

Charles Dickens did not, when on June  9, 1S65. a train fell through the bridge  at Staplehurs't, England, and the carriage in ^'hich ho was traveling hung  over the side. Ho acted with great  coolness and courage, helping to extricate tho wounded and then scrambling  hack to rescue tho manuscript of 'Our  Mutual Friend.' But though uninjured, he never recovered from tho shock  and afterward, when traveling, as his  daughter states, ho would often suddenly- fall into a paroxysm of fear,  clutch the arms oil he railway carriage, large beads of perspiration  standing on his faco and suffer agonies  of terror.

'<  Much is heard just now about the  movement in Canada, especially in  tho West, for the organization of a  central provincial authority for tho  supervision of municipal loans. There  eecms to bo in Saskatchewan a fairly  unanimous feeling in favor of the,  scheme. The father of the campaign,  bo far ai Saskatchewan is concerned,  is Aid; J. S.

Mr. Woodward is an Englishman, who didn't find England big  enough.  - He is a big built,, broad-  ehouldered man-of about thirty-five.  Much of Prince Albert's development'  Is due to him, and of course in- developing the city Aid. Woodward has  'developed his own business    For he  ���������has discovered'the magic in the words  . real estate, and haying discovered it,  .fa making good use of it.  His campaign for a local govern-,  menf-board ��������� for Saskatchewan has  spread to the neighboring. province,  "and is meeting with great favor, because the discussion regarding a provincial supervision of securities arises  [from the deslrr.of Canadian municipalities to borrow cheaply in the  'London market.  The Britisher on Foreign Duty Never  Forgets His Games.  Wherever the wandering Britisher  may go he takes his playthings with  him. In tho wilds of far New Guinea  ho plays his golf, and braves tho torrid heat of Port Soudan on sun-baked  tennis courts and sandy "greens."  Cricket and oven Ti ">tball have their  devotees, and the nimble Abyssinian  pony has much to do with the popularity of polo.    . ,  To those who prefer less strenuous  forms of recreation, sailing is a favorite pastime! -and the turtle, shark,  and multi-colored fish that "inhabit  the, tepid waters outsido~the harbor  afford a never-ending source of entertainment. The commercial value of  the "turtle has yet to be. exploited,  but the Soudan Government-has lost  no time in establishing pearl fisheries  a little to the north of Port Soudan,  with an eye to future revenue. "  Large and well-built stores have  been emoted in tho western town by  Greek nnd native traders, whilst the  eastern side^ of the harbor has been  reserved for customs offices and enclosures, and shipping sheds and  warehouses. A labyrinth of /ai-way  lines and sidings foretell the commercial future of' the'port as surely as  tho smoke across the desert announces the belated Khartoum mail.  The syren,of the mall-boat Prince  Abbas, says J. Englcdew in The  World's Work," gives tongue as  though impatient of delay, and the  mail train gives an answering call as  .she' rumbles across the cantilever  bridge-to her appointed station, on  tho quay. The passengers and mails  are soon'transferred, and **e' skipper  .gives more tunes ".upon his syren, and  and starts full speed for Suez, on "his  weekly voyage-of 700 miles. i  Along tho quay two steamers are  unloading machinery and rails and  bricks, cement, and lumber, whilst  tho coal transporting plant at the  northern entrance to the harbor relieves the-collier Aberdeen of 600  tons of Welsh steam coal per hour.  And through it all old Sheikh Bar-  ighut sleeps on, the relic of a day long,  past. His spirit maybe see3 and understands; but whatever else we leave  to supposition, the history of the  magnificent work that is .being accomplished in a country devoid o,f tho  bare essentials for'human existence,  and decimated by the Mahdi's devastating, hordes, willbe a glorious contribution to the annals of British  achievement.

In its present form  it is a, reconstruction of two bouses  built by George Washington, and all  but the lower portion retains the original walls.  In ' December, 179S, Washington  wrote a letter to William Thornton,  an architect, "to proceed in laying in"  materials for carrying on my buildings  in tho federal city." In the same let-  ,ter. which was' written from Mount  Vernon, he said: "I saw a building in  Philadelphia of about the same front  and elevation that are to be giw-su to  my .two bouses, which pleased mo.

THE  NEW ARCTIC  LAND.  ������*���������  - Now Zc-alond's Industry.  A curious and at one time  jtremely profitable and important industry in New Zealand is that of  Kauri gum digging. Kauri gum,  which is the fossilized resin of the  kauri pine, is found only in the extreme north of the North Island,  Mid for the manufacture of high-  class varnish has no equal, with the  exception perhaps of Zanzibar gum,  which is, however, much dearer.  It forms one of the greatest assets  of the Auklaud Province. The equipment of the digger consists of a  thin, long spear, one or two heavy  spades, and a scraping knife. The  gum is usually found on poor land,  and the tbeoiy is that the giant  trees that yielded it have so cxhaust-  - ed the land that now nothing but  tea-tree, or "manuka," as it is called  Jn the Dominion, will grow on it.  ' Until about twenty-five years ago  the gum was entirely produced by  British labor, and to some small extent by' Maoris. Then a number of  AustrianB mado .their appearance,  and are now therein such numbers  that it is safe to say 75 per cent, of  all tho gum produced is tho result of  their labors.

King George V. is a blood relative  of four other ruling monarchs ��������� the  Czar of Russia,-- the German Emperor,  and the Kings of Denmark and  Greece.  The Czar is King George's first  cousin, as his mother before her marriage to thi late Czar Alexander III.  was PrincesB Tagmar of Denmark,  Bister of the Dowager Queen Alexandra of Great Britain, King George's  mother. King George, by the way, is  also a first cousin of the Czarina of  Russia, who is a daughter of Princess  Alice of Great Britain, King George's  aunt.  Kaiser Wilhelm II. of Germany la  a first cousin of the British monarch,  as hie mother was Princess Victoria  of England, the "Princess Royal,"  eldest daughter of Queen Victoria and  aunt of the present British ruler. She  married the late Frederick W4,iiam  of Prussia, who was Emperor fi only  100 days in 1888.  Another first cousin of King George  Is King Christiar. X. of Denmark. His  father, the late King Frederick III.  of Denmark, was a brother of  George's mother, the Dowager Queon  "Alxandra.  King Conatantine of Greece is also  King George's first cousin.

Some of the Wonders  of ������ Covent  > Garden Production.  '      An almost   superhuman    task    is  ' that' of producing   a new   opera   at  Covent Garden, in London.    Indeed,  after a chat with Mr. Raymond Roze,  ' whose English opera season at Covent Garden has just opened, it is evident that whatever popularity   aud  fame may be achieved   by the   producer   of    successful   opera   at   the  world-famous   theatre,   it   is earned  twenty times over.  {     Only those associated with such a  stage production havo  any  idea  of  the work involved.    Talking of his  new opera, "Joan of Arc," Mr. Roze  mentioned that its composition   had  | occupied him "or several years.  I      "Then," he continued, "when I decided to produce  It at Covent Garden, along with   other   operas,   the  ; really arduous work began.    There  I was the choosing of the chorus, for  ! '.instance. . From    tho    beginning  of  May I   have   tried   something   like  3.COO  odd voice's  in order to select  the present   chorus,   which   is   120  strong.   In addition, of course, there  is the trial of voices for the more  important parts, and the .keen competition   to   sing   at Covent Garden  may be gathered from the fact that  ladles came. Trom all parts of Great  Britain to endeavor to secure an engagement when   they   heard   that I  was about to produce a new opera iu  London.  "For a couple of months the chorus rehearsed day after day, under  the direction of the chorus master,  Mr. Cecil Stock. His task has been  a tremendous one. for he had to  work for' twelve and fourteen hours  a day training the various groups of  singers for -their parts in 'Joan of  Arc' and the other operas.  "Then, again, there was the task  of providing.the orchestra, which is  nearly, one hundred strong, with  their band parts, and some idea of  ���������.he work which this involved may  be gathered from the fact that for  four .months I had four copyists  working fourteen to fifteen hours a  day in order to get through the  work."  Even, however, when the chorus  has been chosen and drilled, music  completed for' tho band, and the  principals havo studied their parts  at homo, there is a' vast 'amount of ���������  rehearsing to bo done. The chorus,  has to be brought from the chorus-  room, where . they have only been  accustomed to a piano accompaniment, and rehearsed on the- stage  with the orchestra. Then the principals rehearso with the orchestra,  and afterwards the chorus and principals rehearse together. There are  scenery rehearsals, lighting rehearsals, rehearsals for supers, and costume rehearsals, one after another  until each particular part of the  singing, acting, and setting is perfect and fits in with tho other.  "It is obvious that in the case of  a new opera like 'Joan of Arc,' tho  work of production is far greater  than in tho case of an old opera; for,  in a new production, the producer  must originate everything. For instance, armour, heraldry, and historical setting play a great part_in  this- particular opera. Indeed, it provides tho greatest show of heraldry  ever seen on the Btage. The armour  alone," went on Mr. Roze, as we discussed this feature of tho new opera,  "has coot me close on ������600, and in  order to be absolutely correct in  every detail in regard to the heraldry  I have secured the services of Mr.  G. Ambrose Lee, York Herald of  Arms, who has revised all the details and ceremonials." !  Changes In the Sea Floor Fron>  Shore to Shore.   .  THE BIG MID-ATLANTIC RIDGE,  Hasty Wedding Service.

Manifold are tho reasons advanced  for tho' high meat prices, ono of the  principal being that tho inland production Is insufficient to cover tho demand. As n matter of fact, tho German production has kept pace with  tho Increase, but not with the demand  of tho population. Tho German of today cats more meat than formerly.  Thirty or forty years ago the consumption averaged eighty-eight pounds per  capita, whereas It now amounts to 119  pounds.

The contention that the hen la  the" most compassionate thing in  creation is strikingly illustrated by  a case of motherhood in naturo related in Country Life. A correspondent tells how in a farmyard were  two puppies, for whom the mother  bad no affection; so an old hen look  pity on tbem, and when she went to  roost they followed her. Squatting  in a corner of a cart-shed she lifted  a wing and the two youngsters  crawled under for the night, her  chicks slumbering on the backs ot  the puppies,  Training the Royal Horses.  iDvery morning at about 11 o'clock  a procession headed by two chestnut  horses in charge of grooms, followed  by a detachment of guards with their  bands playing vigorously, a strong  force of police and a crowd of civilians, leaveB St. James' Palace, London, and proceeds through St James'  Park to the Guards' headquarters  close to Buckingham Palace.  The two chestnut horses are tho  chief centre of interest, for this is  their daily lesson in equine deportment. Some day they will figure  proudly in state pageantry and they  are being taught to carry themselves with becoming dignity and  quietness.  For them the chosen drummers of  the various guards' bands beat  fiercely on their drums, while the  pipers pipe their shrillest notes. This  is the ordeal of noise, and at first  the two chestnut horses took exception to it. But after several  weeks of it they have become indifferent, and although the pipers exert  themselves to their utmost both  horses now have an air of well-bred  boredom.

In Places It Rises Above the'Surface,  Foiming Groups of Islands.  A sketch of thc'landscapc" of the  ocean hod Is given by Dr. A. 1-]. Shipley In an article in tho Edinburgh Ku-  ,Yiew:  "The passengers and the crew of a  liner racing over the 'surface of tho  Atlantic are apt.to imagine that under  ilicra id a vast, layer of water of varying depth spursely Inhabited by a few  fish. As a matter of-fuct. the whole of  this great ocean is teeming with life.  If instead of taking ship we could take  to tho watf>r and walk across the bed  of tho' Atlantic to America, starting  from the shores of wosteru "Europe, we  (should in effect be traveling through a  succession of new countries. Not only  would tho surrounding physical conditions vary as wc advanced, but the  animal and plant life would vary iu  correlation with the altering physical  conditions.  "Walking farther and farther toward  the depths of tho Atlantic, we should  Boon lose all sight of the algae, und the  shallow water fish���������tho plaice anc' solo,  whiting, skates, dogfish and others and  cod���������would give way to the megrim  Riid tho hake. The sea floor would  gradually change from rock or gravel  or stones to sands and ultimately to  mud or oozes of various tints, their  original colors often modified by tho  action of tho decomposition of organic  particle Id them and on them. All  theso finer deposits aro derived from  tho neighboring laud und are'blown  Bcaward by offs* Dre wiuds or washed  .down by rains and streams and carried  out to the "sea by rivers.    .

Beyond  lies tho continental slope, a preclplcs  more or less abrupt and more or less  high, descending by 6teep declines or  terraced cliffs until depths of 2.000  fathoms aro reached.  "The" Atlantic, compared with the  other grept oceans, has nn unusually  largo area of comparatively shallow  .water. Of its total area 27.5 per ceuf  is covered by water less than 1.004  fathoms deep; 18 per ce-t lies between,  .3.000 and 2.000 futboms and 47 per cent  Tbctween. 2,000 and 3.000 fathoms; the  remaining 7.5 per cent Is still d������������������������ppr.

As Knie������  oh* shown, this rldgo. which roughly  bisects tho Atlantic, extends from Iceland as far south us fifty-three degn-es  of south latitude, with a slight nnd  quite Inexplicable break Just unrtvr tho  equator.
