Jn 190' Mr. Miner obtained  seven wild geese, clipped their wings,  and placed them on his pond as decoys, but wild geese were so scarce  th.it it was four years before any  others joined them. In the spring of  1908 eleven came, the folio wingxyear  32, and in 1910 as many as 350. Since  that time they have been too numerous to give any exact estimate, but  probably about 1,000 may be found .ou  the premises at a time Since 1911 no  {.���������hooting whatever has been indulged  in within the reserve. By moving the  l'<-ed by degrees the geese have been  coaxed to come right up to the  house.  Wild ducks also frequent the pond,  nnd some of 0 ese have been identified by aluminum bands, bearing Mr.  Aimer's address- By means of these  lie lias established the fact that they  return to his place every spring, or,  if they fail to return, he has been able  to learn why,', has happened to them.  One was shot as far away as Paris,  Kentucky. Ihosc that return nest in  the neighborhood and bring up their  young before pgain migrating.  Mr. Miner'p experiments are a  stiiking illustration of how easy it  would be "to conserve the migrating  bird life of this continent if only  refuges were provided, where the  birds could : emain for a short time  unmolested, during their seasonal  Mights to their breeding grounds and  back again.  a������.

Thus a salesman is pretty sure to  market his products, to advantage; a  piofessional man brings excellent  judgment to.his new work; a tradesman possesses trained ability which  works in handily in his new -enterprise. If a man has made a success  of something else, .the likelihood of  him succeeding at farming is increased.  Thus it was with Mr. R. A. Alexander of Aldergrovo, B.C., who was'  formerly a machine disigner by profession. Alexander in his new sphere  at once found many ways of turning  his expert knowledge to account. On  most farms the workshop contains  simply a bench, a vice, and various  hand tools. Alexander installed a  comparatively complete machine  shop, equipped with anvil, forge, drilling machine, handsaw and steel, iron  and woodworking tools.  This' machine shop lias proved of  invaluable assistance in conducting  the farm. One of Alexander's most  ambitious undertakings is now ne&r-  ing completion. It is a farm steam  engine, with a nominal capacity of  two horsepower, but which actuaMy  will develop five or six. Mounttd oh  trucks it is easily transported from  one- part of the farm to another, attending to such operations as woodcutting and feed-grinding.  Alexander has not permitted his inclination toward mechanics to keep  him away from primary farm work  He has had splendid success in daiiy-  ingf, handling grade Jerseys exclusively. His field crops have been  uniformly successful and his potatoes  are always among the best in the district.

The Word "Obey" in Marriage Service  Queen Victoria, when asked whether she would cay "obey," in the marriage service, answered in the affirmative. She was being married "not  as a qujon, but as a woman," which  was strictly truo as she conferred  no rank upon her husband by marriage.  Today   the.-e  is    much     discussion  over this one word in the service of  matrimony.    There are even said to  be some clergymen who quietly omit  it, sometimes at the instance of the  bride,   but  generally  from    a   sense  that it is not quite fair.  !     To quote St.  Paul, the wife,    who  is  to  be  subject  to  her  husband  iu  everything has fcr husband one who  loves  his   wife   even  as   Christ  also  loved  the  chinch,  and  gave  himself  up  for it.

A   Pre-Rcman   Wall  The Roman wall had a curious, but  little known, p.-edecessor.  Before doing the thing themselves,  the Romans counselled the Britons  to build a wall, witli^the result that���������  "The Britons, wanting masons,  built that wall, not of stone as they  were advised, but made it of turf,  and that so sender that it served  little or nothing at all for their defence and the army '. . . bore  down all that was before them."

King David, Nero, and King Ludwig  of Bavaria were artists. Henry VIII.  loved music-makings, and played upon  the recorder. Queen Elizabeth encouraged the study - of music among her  people, and was herself an adept of  the concerd of sweet sounds," and  Frederick the Great sought solace  from the aaffirs of state by gathering  musicians around him, playing upon  the flute, and writiug military marches  and other pieces. Frederick, indeed,  stands out as the monarch of the  past who did most to foster a love of  the art. Pie took an active part in the  musical life cf his people, and exerted  a personal influence upon the operatic  performances of his day. His name, in  this connection, is inseparable from  that of Bach.  The present emperor has done much  to maiutain that enthusiasm for good  music which has for so long characterized his people. It is strange to think  of the mar. whom Europe calls a war  lord exhibiting such, zealous interest in  the arts of peace.

Genuine must bear Signature  Earonet,   But   Never   Used   His   Titla  A curious fact has developed from  the news of the death a few days  ago of a quaint old gentleman known  as Samuel Peel of Middlesex, Eng.  It transpires that he was legally,  a baronet, by right of succession to  his brother, Sir Samuel Peel, Bait.,  who died a few years ago.  / Sir Samuel, who left a fortune of  3(150,000, aud dit-d childless, was the  tiead of the flixi of Peel Bros. &-.C0.,  worsted manufacturers, of Bradford,  Yorkshire, and one of tlie "Jubilee"  Baronets.  Mr. Samuel Peel's title to' the Baronetcy was probably only definitely  known to a comparatively few including the vicar and the stationmaster.  -The old gentleman lived in a semidetached house, with a garden, to  which.ho was passionately devoted.   .  He had a' gardener, an old man,  who lias memories of a kindly old  master, who was, "however, hard to  please; over his beloved garden. He  combined wich his affection for his  garden a last-* for theological study.  He never returned the greelings'of  :wo young men neVt door who wished  him "good morning" on seeing him  in his; garden. Nevertheless every  Christmas he would'invite them into  his house to tea.  Anyone who called to see him,  which was seldom, would be made  welcome, but he would not talk about  himself. ^ ���������'    , "'  Once a week until his health' began to fail he would go .to London,  presumably on business, and then he  would talk to' the station-master,  who occasionally visited him at his  house. On'���������:*. tradesman's account he  would demand or return a farthing as  it was due to.,"cr from-him.  Gossips had' it that-there was a  romantic episode connected with his  life, which had turn ad' out unhappily.  He was very fond of .cats, and kept  no less than seven.' It is said that-his  conversation was most interesting,  and he was a highly-educated man.  Ho was' generous to a degree, ;*.nd  gave freely to charities, and"also was  generous to' children.   ���������  TJie Highest Tunnef  Ever since the discovery of South  America the great Andean chain of  mountains, wh!2h runs from ond to  ���������end of the continent, has formed a  formidable barrier to intercourse between the Rations inhabiting it. Indeed, it has actually been simpler for  people living in tho Argentine to  make long sea voyr.ges in order to  reach their neighbors in Chile rather  than attempt to cross the natural  frontier dividing them. But the proud  Andes have now been subdued by ihe  burrowing through of a tunnel, Lhe  loftiest (of any considerable length)  in the world- This is to be found ou  the Transandine Railway, which runs  .from Buenos Ayres on the Atlantic.to  [Valparaiso, on the Pacific, a distance  of 88SS miles." In ascending the Andes  the track follows more or less closely  the old Andean trail till it reaches  the foot of the Cumbre Pass. He-e,  at an altitude of 10,500 feet above the  sea level, the yummit of the mighty  range of mountains is pierced by a  tunnel just over two miles in length.  It was at once a difficult and arduous ' feat, necessitating the toil of an  army of brave men for several yeu'-s  J iii a region of eternal snow and frightful blizzards. Indeed, this tunnel in  the Ancles lies 1,500 feet higher than  the highest carriage road in Europe  ������������������that over the Stlevio Pass���������and  more than 3,500 feet higher than the  Mount Cenis, St. Gothard and Simplon  Passes. With the opening of the Panama Canal thc commercial importance  of this tunnel can hardly be exaggerated.

Tho water in  the waves themselves moves really  up and down anj down and backwards  and forwards with a very slight ino*'e-  ment in a forward direction. The  stronger the wind that makes U19  waves, the higher will the crest on  the waves be, the deeper thc hollows  between them, the greater their iength  and the faster will they move forward. The crest is formed by the action of.the wind on the mass of tne'  wave wlie*\ tha wave ceases to move  forward. The movement or the wave  is quite.apart from the movement of  the whole mass of water, as w;e may  see on the surface of a river when tno  wind is blowing against the direction  of the stream. In that case the wind  will .form waves in its own direction.  The same thing may be noticed at  the mouth of a harbor, if the wind is  blowing on to the shore while th������  tide is going out.

The deceased was employed  as  a  watchman about three years ago at  the mill at Goat river  crossing  and  was acquainted with Crawford. It is  surmised Reid had gone out on  the  platform  of   the rear car to wave a  farewell to Crawford, whose shack is  at Mile 50, and/sbprtly after passing  that point was jolted off the train.     j  "Beyond being badly stunned  and  shaken up internally he was apparently, not   much   the worse for bis  fall, for Crawford gave evidence that  he saw a man (who turned out to be  Reid) passing along the track while  be   was   busy   in  his shack at the  time, somewhat dusty in aspect but  making good headway and  walking  westward.  At about Mile 60 his dazed condition,; the heat and the exertion  proved too much for Reid and he  sank down with his head on the rail  in a down grade curve on the line,  where it was impossible for either  the engineer or the fireman to see  him until within fifty feet of tbe unfortunate, with the result that his  head was severed from his body,  death being instuntancoua.  Had  the.train been five  minutes  later , in -coming Jalong the" fatality  would have been avoided,- asWatch  man Crawford on his afternoon trip  of   inspection   had  almost-reached  the fatal curve when he had  to. get  off. the track to let the train pass.  '.-The coroner's jury  brought  in  ������  verdict .of: accidental d������?ath and the  body was sent on   to' Grand [ Forks  Saturday' afternoon.

; Canada is Spending Fifty Million Dollars to' Improve Transportation
Facilities���To , Carry Trade From
East and West-
Today Canada is making geography,
not of the ephemeral sort, thai pusses
away in a generation, but of that permanent" and substantial character that
1 will endure tor a century and beyond.
Right in the heart of this North American continent���almost at the doors of
Toronto���Canada is engaged upon a
project magnificent in  its conception.
' revolutionary in its effect, national ��n
/   its  significance.  It  is  this  that  Canada  is. about in  the  building of  the
new \V,elland Ship Canal. -
The*>nppell��Uon,  Welland Canal, is
- pei haps throe-quarters of a century
old. Tho old folks talked of it, every
school child learns of it as part of
the daily curriculum. But, with all
this, how many know that right at
the-threshold of Toronto is geography-
In the making? A nation'is conveig-
ingits wealth, its brains, its muscle, to
overcome the natural obstacle to
navigation' presented in the Niagara
cataract���or 'better to improve the
facilities of the exist'ng gap; to .'n-
sure that the trade of Canada will
floAV east and \ve.:t, and that Canada
herself shall boeome one of the carrier-nations ol' the world.
These are some of the problems involved in -the proposal to build a
new "Weland Shi? Canal and it is to
their soluLion that the gigantic project is now under way-
lt is no idle boast to speak of i.he
construction of the' new canal across
the Niagara Peninsula as one of the
world's gvcatcr.L engineering tasks Indeed, the csi.ima.cd expenditure of
$50,000,000 would be sufficient to
warrant that olaim. But in these
days of groat engineering construction the new We.-iland Canal will rival
ir. its challenge to science the connecting waterway at Panama, where
two ocea.is arc joined, and in its com-
n.ei'cial effioncy to the prototype of
all big canals, at Suez.
There is i romance in the historj
of what  may  be  called  the  Welland
"Canals, and there is the - charm of
fiction in the story.of the .conception,
design and now the construction, of
the greater Welland. For its realization men have striven in the glare of
the nooday and tho quiet of the
night, in the halls of parliament and
in thc secluded purlieus of the council  chambc.
It is a ma'i i: work; it .is a work
for many men;, it is a worthy task for
a nation. The met..'., who ..build those
canals don't figure in digits. Th'-y
compound inciousr.uds.    The faith is
��� given to them to remove mountains
They pick up a railway here and deposit it bodily over there. They compute quantities an.: distances as if the
smallest thing to do was to lift a
great steamship with ten thousand
tons of cargo over a 300-foot hill, and
place  it  on  an   ev?n   keel   25  miles
,  away..' ��� -/ : -,
It is worthy to.note that the directing genius-of the new Welland Canal
' is a pure Canaclian product. Mr. John
Laing Weller '.i> engineer in charge of
survey, design and construction. He
is one cf the increasing .number of
graduates who now encircle the globe
in one branch of the imperial service
or another wh) have brought great
and lasting credit to their alma mater
���the Royal Military- College at Kingston. Mr. Weller was -born at Co-
bourg on February 13, 1862. At the
age of twenty-one he was assistant
engineer on the Trent Canal; from.
1888 to 1900 he; was connected with
the St.. Lawrence Canal system; and
from 1900 to 1912 superintendent of
the Welland Canal. When the serious break occurred in the Cornwall
Canal in 1908, Mr. Weller was called
' from St. Catharines to take charge of
the work. -
The first shovel started to work on
October 3, 1913. and the specifications
provide for the.completion of all contracts in time for the openin-.j of the
��� canal in 1918.
Fifty million dollars is, ��� rough'y
speaking, Mr. Weller's estimate of the
cost of. completing the canal. The
prices so far obtained from the contractors place the cost considerably
below his estimate, and one ambition
thc engineer lias  is    that the whole
��� undertaking may be completed and
handed over to the government within the original estimate.
All the work is being done by contract, except the building of the lock
gates, which are provided by the department to insure uniformity of qual
ily and a lower'price, in view of Ihe
number required. Guard iocks will
be put in at Fort Weller and Port Col-
borne.' Care has been taken to
provide ample safety factors to make
the canal secure against emergencies. Mr. Weller's experience with
canals has enabled him to introduce
into his design many improvements
that will facilitate the ease of operation. The locks, are all of the same
fcize, and the .parts are interchangeable. In the multitude of detail today lie has a vision of the completed
canal, with the products of the
prairies meeting the imports from the
old land; eastern Canada grasping
through its long stretches the hand of
the west in one great national purpose.���Toronto Globe.

Willis is an undesirable alien, who

brought to England when 2 years old.
He spent eighteen years in this country and most of the remainder of Lis
life he had*been in America. He, had
a wife and two children.
On two occasions he had been sent
to Russia by boat but as he was unable to speak the language the authorities declined to allow, him to land.
The first time he was sent back here
and he had now-returned to see Hi
wife and children and to take tbtem
away. It was difficult to know what
would happen .to- him in the circumstances "and he might permanently become a passengev on liners travelling
between  the different countries.
The unwanted Willis was said to
have been twice rejected by the United States authorities and if the Russians refuse to have him back he
seems destined for a life on the rolling deep unless he obligingly seeks

Francis   Denounces    Majority
Teacners as Ignorant
Denunciation of the present school
system uttered by Dr. J. Ii. Francis,
superintendent of schools, Los Angeles, Cal... caused a stir among delegates present at a session of the.
National Education association held at
St. Paul.
"God .bless the girl who refuses to
study algebra, a study which causes
many girls to lose their souls," was
one^of Dr. Francis' statements.  ���
"The average literature teacher has
nb soul and little brain," he continued-
'It is a wicked waste of a child's
life to compel him to study with her.
"Most of cur teachers are selfish
egotists, would-be scholars, hiding behind the word 'conservatism,' afraid
of any new method because it would
show her ignorance.
"Progress, too, is blocked by the
great civic religious and political interests.
"I would rather send my child to a
teacher with a soul than one with
brains whose only object is'to have the
child reach the answer in the back of
the book. ' ,
"Nine-tenths of 'our immorality*is
due to damage done by teachers to

Kamloops, B.C , Opens Public Market
The city of Kamloops, B.C., has
opened a public market. On the opening daj; a goodly crowd of citizens
were present early in the morning,
ready to receive "the vendors. But
the -farmers showed less earnestness
than the citizens; the earliest vehicle
was half an. Lour late, and only 16
more appeared in the course of the
day. The market conditions were
such that the demand largely exceeded the supply and the small amount
of produce offered was readily disposed of. This success should encourage more of the surrounding farmers
to take advantage of the market-
White farmers will not compete with
the Chiuese in peddling their produce
from door to door, but might reasonably be expected to meet their customers , at a central market. Kamloops
is to be congratulated on its efforts
to bring customers and producers into ���; direct, contact-with one another,
and this praiseworthy effort should
meet with the success it deserves..
Wants to See the Masses Uplifted by
The Emperor of Germany, who has
shown a warm appreciation of all
kinds oi' sport, believes that the object should be :. physical upbuilding of
the masses rather than an effort to
set new records. In a speech at the
dinner at the Bruns-Buttel-Koog, following the Lower Elbe regatta, the
monarch said that he saw with joy
the earnest accomplishments of the
nation in sport, and continued: "I desire to direct attention to a matter
as to which I believe our nation is on
the right track This iss an endeavor to
confer the chief benefits .of sport upon
ihe whole people, to bring the masses
up to a high plane, and not to sort out
individual, first-class performances
from the dead level, which remains
generally lower."
The Rem-dy For the Many Evils Following   Jeforestatlon   Is  the  Carrying Out of a Policy of Conservation
Under Government Control.
A perpetual timber supply, resulting
from   systematic  methods  of  cutting-
is commonly, and correctly, supposed
to  be  tho  chief  purpose   of  making
forest reserves.
Another purpose, scarcely, if at ail
inferior, is that of regulating theI i*urich! from th water-sheds of rivers, on
which, on account of the fact that tlie
land is un-suitod for farming, through
its being. too poor In quality or too
rocky, or being at too high a level and
so. exposed to frosts, trees form the
most profitable crop.
Forests maintained for this latter
purpose are called 'protection forests.'
Possibly the best example of such a
forest, and certainly the largest protection forest in the world, is the
Rocky Mountains Forest Reserve in'
Alberta, which now has an area of 20,-
896 square miios.
Fortunately the Dominion government early recognized the value of
such , protection forests, and, by tne
creation of forest reserves in the
west, the great rivers of the plains
having, their source in these watersheds were saved from the disastrous
floods, the iOW-watei- stages, and the
filling-up of the river-beds "with eroded soil, so characteristic of the rivers
originating in the denuded water-sheds
of the eastern United States.
In this latter region many, areas in
the  Appalachian    mountains,    which
cover a large part of    Pennsylvania,
Virginia,  the    Carolinas    and    other
States  were van   severely  cut,    and
have been repeatedly swept by lire, so
that   the   forests  have   been  entirely
destroyed.    When rain  falls on such
an.area. tlie wuter runs off almost immediately;  if. on the other hand, the
area   were   covered  with7 forest,   the
soil would he more spongy  and able
to retain water, and the water would
be hindered in running off by the tree-
roots and the  debris on the ground.
Moreove.-, the water,'in its rapid runoff, gradually  takes with it  the soil,'
and where the soil covering the'-rocks
is thin, it is apt to be washed -away
entirely.   Hense there is lost'any possibility of growing a new forest on the
new bare rock. Tne sbi�� carried away

rivers  and .harbours;'and  did actual
harm   by, silting  these  up.   -The   increased  Irregularity, of flow    in    the
streams���excessively, .-full    in  spring
and as scanty in midsummer���greatly
lessened the value-pf .'the water-power
situated on them., Accordingly an agitation'sprang tip to take.steps to re-
afforest such areas as !above referred
to; and aftor abme years the Weeks
Bill was finally passed in 1911, setting
aside  .Hl.POO.OOO  for  the purpose  of
conserving tlu navigability of, navag-
able streams, by buying up'(and ultimately   re-afforesting     thV-   'denuded
areas  on  imro.'tant water-sheds.-/ At
present over five and  a half million
acres  ih\ tha Apalachians  have vbeen
purchased or approved  for purchase.
The right of the    federal    government to expropriate suchJands by purchase hinged on the power of promoting navigation, given by the constitution.    In Canada the Dominon govern-
met was also &ven the regulation of
navigation by the British North America Act of,1SG7, and it has been suggested that, in those parts of eastern
Canada   where-     waste     water-sheds'5
clearly exert a detrimental influence
on the navigability of rivers, the Dominion government should co-operate
with  the  provincial  governments    in
there establishing and conserving forest growth. Such a water-shed is that
of the. Trent river, where, according to
a report lately issued by the sconimis-
sion of conservation, as the result of.
repeated fires, about 150,000 acres are
practically desert land. The Trent valley canal wbich  Rasses  through  this
region,  has -already  cost the  Dominion   government   upwards  of  $10,000,-
000, and, as above report points out,
the re-eslablishment of a forest cover]
on   the   deunded  water-shed    for  the
conservation of  water-supplies is one
of paramount importance to the canal.-
The remedy for thc many evils following    deforestation    as pointed, out in
this  report if  the  carrying out of a
policy  of  conservation  under  Dominion, provincial or municipal control.
Says Canadian  Soldiers Can  Readily
Adapt Themselves to Conditions ,
"The minister of militia should be
well satisfied with the manoeuvres
this year, for they have.been productive of many- Interesting lessons," declared Lord Brooke in an interview.
He commanded the Petewawa camp
and afterwards inspected the Maritime camps.
���"The /Canadina soldier," added
Brooke, "leads a more strenuous life
and'therefore can adapt 'himself more
quickly to the conditions of military
service than tlie European. I was
most favorably impressed with the
spirit of the troops and the genuine
hard work done during the time they
were in training.  '
''The mobilization of- thirteen thousand men at Petewawa in so short a
time could not have been possible
except for the complete harmony existing between the railways and the
mobilization staff. Col. Hughes is
doing his best by means- of cadet
movements, drill halls and personal
influence to keep in close touch with
the needs of the militia,- and thus
building up an efficient force.
"The system of interchange of
imeprial officers inaugurated by Col.
Hughes has proved most useful in
bringing about an exchange of ideas
and a co-operation that must result
beneficially to the empire as a whole.
The presence or H.R.H. the Duke of
Connaught and Sir Robert Borden
at Petewawa- did much to stimulate
the interest of the' troops in their
Alleged     Auto     Delivery  Scheme   For
Prairies   by   C.P.R.
The C.P.R. is repoited to be arranging for the adoption on a large scale
of a system of supplementary transportation by motor wagons in tho
prairie provinces which will practically bring tho railway to the barn doors
of every farmer in its territory. Every
freight station will be made a depot
for a "fleot of motor wagons, of a
type speci Hy Revised for this service, the nu'.'.iber varying according
to'the .size an:1 importance of the district served. It is expected that im'"
portant stations will have from 12 to
a score' of thocie cars in service.
The cars, which, owing to the nature
of the prairie-territory, will not have
to negotiate any r.eavy gradesvara designed to carry about one-sixth of a
railway-.carload of merchandise and
are particularly .-.dap.ted for the trau&-
port-bf grain- The chief importance
will,- of course be in connection with
the moving of graii-. harvested in autumn but the belief of the authorities
is that stiff icier-1 service can be made
of cars for Jclivsring supplies to farmers and so assisting in the establishing of homesteaders on their  .land pp
IWirelesi Service For Operating Trains
Is Now no Longer an Experiment���
Communicating  With  Moving Train
Will Prevent Wrecks.
Since   the 'first   wireless   telegraph
message from a moving train" to a fixed station was flashed from the fast
Lackawanna Limited to Scrautou.'Pa.,
the improvement of the wireless service between  trains and  stations for
commercial.-.a!)*-!-, operating    purposes
has  been   steadily  going  on-     L.  B.'
Foley, the Dackawauna's superintend-
er.-l of  telegraph,  who originated the
idea of the train "wireless system and
has  been' in   charge of the  tests, ia
making  satisfactory  experiments    in
fields hardly thought of when,the new
vse of wireless was first conceived
The latest accomplishment is the
setting of signals by wireless from a
moving train or from a'fixed wireless
station.' Foley says [hat there is no
longer any doubt that the -wireless
can be depended on for this signal
service.- If aa operator at a station,
he says, wants to set a signal for a
moving train not in communication
with him he can cause the semaphore
blade of the signal post to rise or fall
ac he wishes by simply'sounding the
proper dots and dashes on his key.
"Signals can be sent by wireless,"
said Foley, "as easily and as surely aa
they are now sent by electricity conducted by wires. We have'a selective
device by which an operator can get
a signal at any point if he has occasion
to Hag a train.
"This means that if any mistakes
are made in the orders issued to engineers and conductors, at stationsbr
in the case of an emergency in which
a train must be stopped to avert an
accident the station operator can signal the train as certainly as if he had
direct wire communication with some
cne on board.
"Another valuable use to which the
wireless controlled signals can be
put," said Foley, "is the handling of
freight trains on long runs. At present a through freight must make many-
stops between its starting point and '
destination, so that orders and % Instructions concerning right of way
can be deli/ered to the conductors,
but these frequent stops are a source
of. expense: and delay which will bo
abolished by the wireless telegraph.
"Keeping trains in motion for long
distances without stops will result in
great economy of operation," said
Foley. . "Railroad operating officials
know how expensive it Is to start and

Royal Commission Proposals Accepted by Department of Justice
Reforms in the administration of
the /Kingston penitentiary suggested
by"; the commission which made an extensive investigation into the subject
are beng put into effect by the department'of justice. Any system inaugurated 'with Kingston will, of
course,/be-'applied to the other penal j
institutions. '
-Convicts at Kingston who used to
have on Sundays their last meal of
the day in the r��arly afternoon are to
have an evening meal. While knives
are not to be allowed, a new kind of
spoon and fork will7 be furnished.
The system of. tubbing and hosirg
is to be abolished or be very sparingly resovted to, and in addition to
the resident physician a visiting
physician is likely to be engaged for
the different institutions. There
have also ber-n a number of changes
in the staff at Kingston. '
The commission suggest more outside work for (he convicts, such as
farm labor and particularly recommends that the manufacturing operations be extended so as to include
manufacture of things such as furniture, etc., required in government departments. This is recognized as a
large question- which would require
very careful consideration before being made effective.
Switzerland   Produces   More   of   Drink
Than Any Other Country���
Ravages in Morocco
A craze for absinthe is spreading
ali over the continent nnd to England. The sal > of absinthe is rigorously forbidden in Switzerland. The
curious thing is that Switzerland is
the largest producer of absinthe in
Europe, and every drop is exporied
under fuil official control. The absinthe to be procured surreptitiously
in the Swiss cafes is smuggled through
from France.
In Morocco )hr- absinthe craze has
become so bad that the Sultan has
prohibited its manufacture, sale or
importation- This decree was made
at the request of General Lyautey, the
Frtmch president in Fez. All travellers
agree that the effects of drinking absinthe in Morocco are appalling. Caravans have been described as laden
with absinthe, carrying it from the
coast to the interior.
tional cost of fuel with the attendant
pulling out of drawheads and the wear
and tear of the equipment being no
inconsiderable items - in themselves.
With direct communication with a
train and the ability to set and release
signals by wireless, dispatchers can
keep in touch with conductors and
make the stops needless- The wireless
permits the dispatcher to board every
train and deliver his instructions as
surely as if he handed them to ihe
conductor in a sealed envelope.   '
"That the wireless service for ordinary operating: purposes is no longer
an experiment is proved by the fact
that the Lackawanna has already depended upon it when wire communication was cut off. Recently, when a severe storm put all telephone and telegraph lines out of commission in the
mountain division of the Lackawanna
railroad, all train orders were handled
by wireless between Scranton and.
Binghampton for two hours during'
which fifty-four orders were transmitted." ���   -.-.-���-.���
"Communication by wireless teie-^
graph to and f.'om fixed stations "with
moving trains is no longer an uncertainty," Foley said. "Railroads . can
now go ahead and install the service
without any fear of failure. The service can be put into operation without
increasing the train crews."
Commercial telegrams have already
been sent from the Lackawanna Limited and a set of regular toll rates i��
now being prepared by the railroad
and telegraph compa-nies.
