Lord Kelvin, who computed that the
earth was twenty million years old,

Such a new way has actually beet
discovered in indium, which has the
power of giving out heat without
diminishing in weight. One pound of
radium would keep a house warm for
2,000 years. Radium is scattered
ihrouglioiit Ihe earth's surface, nni!
therefore radium gives off helium, ami

earth's crust.
By comparing Ihe amount of radium and of helium in a piece of rock
it would be possible to form un estimate of the earth's age. which lie as-

The House of Commons enjoyed a
genuine sensation recently. Mr. Km-
inuiiuel Devlin, the eloquent member
for Wright, lias for yean worn a luxuriant moustache and a bunch ol waving black hair whieh would have
done credit to any embryo artist or
musician. But the barber bided his
time and finally got Emmanuel. The
latter is a faithful attendant in the
Chamber, antl the long night debates,
followed by the recently inaugurated
morning proceedings, proved too much
lor tired nature. According to the
story going the rounds of tho corridors, Mr. Devlin fell asleep under
the operations of the tonsorial expert
snd when he awoke found himself
minus his moustache and sporting a
real short mijitary hair-cut. This was,
in itself, bad enough. But other
tribulations awaited him when he
reached tbe House out ol breath just
after prayers en Francais. He had
doffed overcoat and .chapeau and was
heading Into the Chamber when .Uie
Demers, of St. John and Iberville,
spotted him and gave the alarm. "A
stranger coming into the House," was
the appalling whisper with which Demers startled Mr. H. W. Bowie, the
stalwart deputy Sergeant-at-Arms. Mr.
Bowie is nothing if not alert and
efficient. He grippe'd his sword and
started menacingly towards the supposed intruder, waving at him to halt.
Mr. Devlin was late, and wasn't halting. Member uud officer met within
the doors of the Chamber. The latter
conducted a searching inspection, hut
Mr. Devlin finally established his
identity. And he maintains that the
officer most gallantly atoned for his
error by observing: "Well, sir, you

Their Religion and Community System of  Llvino.
The Doukhobors, the peculiar Russian religious sect of peasants who
emigrated to Canada in suoh large
numbers in 1899, und of whom so
much whs heard a few years later nn
account of their conflict with the
Dominion Government, form the
theme of an article—by N. Syrkin, of
New York — in Suddeutsche Monat-
shefte (Munich).
Mr. Syrkin traces in this article tlie
Doukhobors' stormy history and expatiates upon their strange beliefs.
He says, among other things:
"The nucleus of the Doukhobor
<aith is solely recorded in the reports
sent in by tlie community in the 18th
century to the Russian Government,
because after Pobirokin's idea their
faith should be shown forth in their
life alone. We read that the human
body is for lift soul only a temporary
prison where it can have no other
aim than the manifestation of God;
tliat the first men had neither customs nor religions institutions but
were illumined by the Holy Ghost,
and that later by the power of evil
creeds and laws arose. Under Catherine II. aud Paul the Doukhobors
underwent severe persecutions, under
Nicholas I. in 1842 they were exiled
to Tillis in the Caucasus in the hope
that Ihey would die out. The Doukhobors, however, made friends with
the wild liilhnen, prospered agriculturally in spite of the desert and
rocky foothills, and were strengthened
to endure another persecution in 1888.
Then Peter Werigin undertook the
leadership of the community's practi
cal and mystical life, prohibiting
smoking, wine and meat. As a consequence of the schism of the "Small
party" Werigin and his disciples were
banished tn Siberia. In 1895 the
Doukhobors burnt their weapons publicly and refused to take part in the
Government suppressions and military service. After ordering the maltreating of women and children and
massacre of unresisting old men, the
Government exnulsed four thousand
Doukhobors from their villages and
drove them into the Grusinian villages where over a thousand died of
privation. The men available for
military service were sent for 18 years
to tlie criminal battalion in Siberia.
In 1898 through the combined efforts
of Tolstoi and tlie Socie'y of Friends
in England, funds were raised and
the Czar's permission obtained for
lhe emigration of the sect to Cyprus,
which being found unsuitable, in 1899
over eight thousand Doukhobors were
granted iands by the Canadian Government in the Province of Assiniboia
near Yorktown and ef Saskatchewan
near Thunder Hill and Prince Albert.
Mr. Syrkin notes Hint on the arrival of Peter Werigin in Canada the
return to the traditional Doukhobor-
ism and Hie introduction of modern
agricultural methods began. Werigin
disowned the pilgrimages and di .carders of clothing and organized the
communities into a central union. The
patriarchal life is strictly adhered to
and work is more the contented occupation of energy than the curse of
bread earned in the sweat of the
brow. Everything is left to tho good
will and judgment of the individual,
tbe administration is at a nominal
cost, ns the ciders work. Annually
1,000 adults are sent as dny laborers
lor Hie railways, and nfter the deduction of their living expenses they
return the greater part of their wage
to the common treasury. One of the
largest antl best brick-making plants
in Canada has been founded by the
Doukhobors at Yorktown, and the
communities have paid their debts,
and even eighteen months after their
arrival in Canada, wrote to tlie English Quakers to cease pecuniary gifts
and apply tbein to others more needy.
But even under Werigin the Doukhobors have not found peace. True
to their belief in common property
they have finally refused to become
Canadian subjects and consequently
have lost the greater part of their
homesteads of about the value of two
million dollars, retaining only about
fifteen nercs fur each member ol a
Implanting, Hair in a Bald-Scalp.
The bald-headed will b^ interested
in a Hungarian doctor's method of
hair transplantation. Dr. Szekely recently explained his method. He ties
together an extremely alhin gold wire
and sterilized hair, implanting the latter by means of a thin Injection syringe in the scalp, where it is fixed
with small hooks ot gold wire.
He states that in this painless way
he can Implant 1100 to not) hairs per
hour. Of course, the hair will not
grow, ami the transplantation only
produces a new mud of wig. Dr.
Szekely presented to his colleagues
three men wearing these wigs, whicli
(snys the Morning Leader, Viennu correspondent) could not be distinguished from iiiiiiiriil liulr.

blood-making, nerve-restoring tonic
ls needed.
The antiquated custom of taking
purgatives in the spring ls useless,
for the system really needs strengthening, while' purgatives only gallop
through the bowels, leaving you weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
best medicine, for they actually make
the tew, rich, red blood that, feeds
the starved nerves, and thus cure
the many forms of nervous disorders.
They cure also such other forms of
spring troubles as headaches, poor
appetite, weakness in the limbs, as
well as remove unsightly pimples and
eruptions. In fact they unfailingly
bring new health and strength to
weak, tircti and depressed men, women and children.

AWonderful Discovery
An eminent scientist, the other day,
gave his opinion that the most wonderful discovery of recent years was
the discovery of Zam-Buk. Just
think 1 As Soon as a Biggie thin layer
of Zam-Buk Is applied to a wound or
ti, sore, such Injury Is Insured against
blood poison! Not one species of
microbe has been found that Zam-
Buk does not kill!
Tben again. As soon as Zam-Buk
Is applied to a sore, or a cut, or to
skin disease, It. stops tho smarting.
That Is why children are such friends
of Zam-Buk. They care nothing for
the science of the thing. All they
know Is that Zam-Buk stops their
pain. Mothers should never forget
Again. As soon as Zam-Buk Is applied to a wound or to a diseased
part, the cells beneath the skin's surface are so stimulated that new
healthy tissue is quickly formed. This
forming of fresh healthy tissue from
below fa Zam-Buk's secret of healing.
The tissue thus formed is worked up
to the surface and literally casts off
the diseased tissue above it. This is
why Zam-Buk cures are permanent.
Only the other day Mr. Marsh, of
101 Delorlmier Ave., Moutreal, called
upon the Zam-Buk Co. aud told them
that for over twenty-five years he
had been a martyr to eczema. Hts
hands, were at one lime so covered
with sores that he had to sleep in
- gloves. Four years ago Zam-Buk was
Introduced to him, and ln a few-
months it cured him, To-day—over
three yeara after his cure of a disease he had for twenty-live years-
he' Is still cured, and has had no
trace of any return of the eczema!

The Word "Strike."
The earliest use of the word
"strike" in the sense of stopping
work occurs in London Chronicle for
September, 1765, In connection with
l eoal strike. This publication retorts a great suspension of labor ln
{he. Northumberland coalfields, and
tbe colliers are stated to have "struck
tut" for a higher bounty before entering into their usual yearly "bond."
the time-honored Illustration of pro-
Itless labor, "carrying coals to New-
sastte," appears to have received its
flrst slap in the face during thiB
Itrike. The Chronicle reports that
"several pokes of coal were brought
trom Durhtwn to Newcastle by one of
the common carriers, and sold on the
sandhill for 9d a poke, by which he

Turkish Women at the Theatre.
A notice which is to be seen in one
ot the theatres ot Constantinople effectively solves the problem of people at the back obtaining a clear
view and Is very-much more radical
than the polite request made In English and French theatres that ladles
should not mar the view of the stage
with huge hats.
The notice reads: "In order to render the performance, agreeable to all
those present the management of the
theatre has decided that the spectators of the first three rows should recline, those of the next three rows

Men prominent in Railway, Banking, and Commercial circles have
been advising tlio West lo adopt
mixed farming. It is easy to give
advice, and frequently those who are
so freo in handing out advice,
do bo without having comprehensive knowledge of tn* subjject
on whicli their advice ia tendered.
II is not to be wondered at that
those in charge of the railways
bhould Beck meuiis lo divert the cri *,■
les from themselves. When all ls
aaid nntl done, however, lt would appear that men charged with the conduct of lingo operations, and whose
success depends upon the confidence
which tbey are able to instil tar-the
public, would bc careful before expressing their views on any subject
It will be conceded that all parts of
pur North-West are not equally suitable for mixed ' farming. Jhe
greater part of the North-West, however, is entirely suitable to raising
of cattle, hogs, and horses. .
At the outset, it might be pointed
out that this year, while the amount
of grain shipped from Southern Alberta, which is almost wholly grnlu
raising, has been live times as much
aB it was last year, the credit in that
ectlon ot the country, is not as good
as it is in Northern Alberta, wher_>
mixed fanning is the rule.
Ever since the railways first penetrated the West, the people have
shouted every fall for cars to ship out
the grain, but notwithstanding that
thousands of lullcs of railways have
been built, no greater proportion of
grain hus been shipped out before
the close of navigation than in earlier years, it would seem that no
matter what is done, the most that
can ever be expected is that sixty per
cent, of the wheat crop will be shipped before the close of navigation,
and tho amount that will be shipped
from the close to the opening of
the severity of the Wfctuner, which, as
we know, is very uncertain.
But, assuming thai the railway..
were lmill to transport the grain as
fast as it could be marketed, !s excessive grain growing best for the
fnrmer ami for tlte country'.". The
history of the world shows that land
cannot be cropped continuously without destroying its fertility, and tha*
after a time tbe vitality of the soil
haa to be restored through fertilizers.
Tho amount of money spent In
Kurope and elsewhere for fertilizers
of all kinds reaches a tieinendoiiai
We know that the average number
of bushels of grain raised per acre
in i*,he I'nlt.'il States hus steadily
dropped off.. .We also know that in
the older parts of Manitoba the average number of ushels of grain ralbse.l
per acre is steadily diminishing, an I
we all realize that lt will lie but a
comparatively short time when the
same thing will happen nt the newer
portions of the North-West.
We must not only loon lo the present, but to tht future- A God-fearing man who in 1 111 ii g the soil looks

We must recognise lho fact that

stallments running over a number of
years, secured ou the stock purchased, and the buildings erected by
the money borrowed. The Government ought also to appoint thorough
ly qualified men to superintend tht
erection of the buildings, and teach
the farmers hoi/ to ma'.te butter ami
cheese on the most approved principles. The marketing ot the pro-
duee should be done by men appointed by lhe Government, who know all
about thc market, anil the value ot
dairy products, so that farmers may
jjet full value for their products.
Tills plan was adopted ln Denmark
many years ago, and ia in operation
to-day. Follow out this scheme and
the farmers would bave money In
the bank all the year round ami
would pay cash for everything they
needed, and get a substantial discount on thel;* purchases.
It wouhl be a wise expenditure if
the Government were to Import the
best breeds of dairy cattle, and establish a dairy farm as an object lesson
to the dairymen. The Increase of
the herd could be sold to the proprietors of private dairy farms, at a reasonable price.
Forty years ago Denmark butter
wus unknown in England; but at the
present time It is acknowledged :o be
of the best quality, commands the
highest price and is ln great demand.
Those who prefer the factory system could unite and establish creameries and cheese factories on the
same principles and operate them iu
the same way.
The benedts resulting from dairy
farming would be manifest on every
acre of farm. It would lncrease_.thc
fertility of the soil, and there Is no
branch of the farmers calling that
would give beter returns on the capital and labor invested. Tlio breed
ing and fattening of hogs In connection with the dairying industry would
ulso be a source of large revenues..
Iu addition to loaning money to far
mers and dairymen, the Governmenl
should furnish capital to assist in the
erection and equipment of flour mills,
beef and pork packing houses, beet
sugar factories, and other organized
Industries to help fanners to dlspost-
of their products In a concentrated
form.. Uy this means, farmers
would bo encouraged to grow less
wheat and direct their attention, io

sunshine, and the rtst of lhe days
wer? bright.
It had heen hoped it would not be
nect'Bsary to bave to insert lhe iietiul
paragraph concerning the dyuauiit-
ing work, owing to lbe fact that no
explosions took place during the
firat two weeks. Unfortunately,
however, the blasting during the
last two.weeks more than made up
foi the fortnight's lull. Lately the
city have been clearing the tnor
mous cedar stumps immediately
aurrounding the pens.
Several pens iu class I have passed
the century mark duriug the ptat
month, notably pens 9 (117), 12
(114), 2(110), 23 (105) and 7 (104).
The following bave also distinguished themselves: Pens 1 (99), 19
and 20 (96 each), 14 (94), 5 (92),
and 22 (91). Pens 14, 9, 1, 12 and
19 are producing fine eggs, taking
weight, size, texture of shell and
evenness into account.
Following pens provided broodies
in class I: Pens 9, 10, 17, 19 (2
Pan 9 deserves special mention
for having produced six eggs a day
on aix occasions during the mouth,
pens 12, 2, 25 (twice), and pens 5,
4, 1, 14 (once).
Feather eating, among the light
classes principally, :s still prevalent,
necessitating further use of the hit-
tar aloes and lard mixture. This
proves"very effective until the birds
remove the mixture by dusting.
Tbe star performers in tbe heavyweights during tbe month were:
Pens 37 (108 eggs), 33 (105), 32
(104), 26 (102), 3*2 (90). The following laid six rggs in one dsy on
one or more occasions: Pens 32 and
37, twice; pens 23, 38 and 34, onee.
A point brought out by the hot
Weather experienced on the Uth,
13th and 15th of May was that the
heavy iltsStn, were aff.ctid mora
tban the lightweights, ln three instances it waa noticed in u'a-s 1 of
decreased egg yield inimediat ly

already laying very poorly. In the
hemy ..lasses nlnnisl every pen

Study for Old and Young
'PHE.Family Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, Hiiknowledged to lit*
1 the greatest and best family and farm paper on the continent, has on
many occasions given its readers mnst delightful premium picture,
hut this season they have secured wbat is beyond any i|uestion of doubt
tbe best picture ever offered newspaper reader.. It is entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for bis beauty and gentleness, winner**
of many prices at dog snows, tbe p'-'de of the family and neighborhood,
bas been stolen, and after ma..y days' absence be escapes one night from
bis captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in bin struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings bis little mistress, Marjorie, to tbe door and
sbe throws her arms around ber trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on ber shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy with linir like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl witb rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls of any home. ' ,
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Eluley, famous for
bis skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
Tbe beautiful picture "Home Again" on heavy plate pnper 22x2!)
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The Sun and Family Herald and Weekly Slar for I Dili.
The small sum of $1.50 will secure the two pupi-rn for a full year including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in /act it could not be bought at that price.

Great Car Shops to be Erected by the
C.P.R. at Calgary, to be Known
as The Ogden Shops.
The great car shops which the Canadian Pacilic Hallway Co. is erecting
near Calgary, Alberta, will rank amongst the biggest undertakings of
Canada's great transcontinental road.
They'are happily named the "Ogden
Shops" ln honor of Mr. I. G. Ogden,
one of the vice-presidents of the company, and the town which will grow
up around them is also to be called
Ogden. The shops are ot course, to
be of the most modern construction
and equipment, and will conslBt of a
group of twenty buildings, and occupy an area ot 120 acres ot land, the
locomotive works alone covering
from six to eight acres. The Ogden
shops are lutended hy the C.P.U. to
provide for the repairs to equipment
on its western lines. That they will
have plenty ot work lo do ls evidenced from the fact that the Canadian
Pacilic Railway makes it a point to
completely overhaul its rolling stock
at least once a year. This company
does this bo that its equipment may
always be ln the highest possible
state of efficiency. A few years ago
the Angus shops at Montreal and the
shops at Winnipeg were sufficient for
this work, but the C. & P.R.'s equipment has Increased so greatly within
last few years, that the Ogden shops
are a necessity. Between two and
three thousand mejt will he employed,
and they will be systematically housed on a modern plan that will make
the town of Ogden one ot the world's
model hives ot industry and an Ideal
residential place for tbe workingman.
The naming of the shops nfter Mr.
Ogden Is a particularly happy choice
by Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, for that
gentleman is one of the real old
guard ot the C.P.R., a veteran ■ Indeed, having for thirty-one years given the best of his talents to the company's service.
A New Yorker hy birth, belonging
to n family of financiers, his forefathers having been bankers, Mr. Ogden has spent the larger portion of
his biipy life in the finance departments of railways. In 1871 he became
paymaster and accountant of the
Chicago & ■ Pacific Railway and
five yeara later .was auditor of that
eompany. The high reputation he
gained with the 0. & P.R. attracted attention towards him, and at the birth
of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company ln 1881 he was selected to take
charge of the finances of the western
division ot the road, with headquarters at Winnipeg. Two years excellent work in the west was followed
by his promotion to the position of
chief auditor ot the entire system,
the higher title of controller being
bestowed upon him lu 1887. Other
honors quickly followed, and in 1901
he was made vice-president of the
Company, having naturally the finances ot the large corporation particularly untie:* his charge.
During all these years Mr. Ogden
displayed rare linancial ability and
acumen, and in the struggling days
of the company—and tliere were not
a few ot them ln the eighties and the
early nineties—his advice and knowledge materially aided In tiding the
C.P.R. over many a financial difficulty. His work, Indeed, would form
a large part ot the history of the C.
P. R.
In having the Company's huge
works at the foothills of the Canadian
Rockies named after him, Mr. Ogden
Is paid a justly deserved tribute—a
tribute none the less to his many excellent qualities ot head and heart
than to his great financial genius and
to hia long years ot loyally and faithfulness to the great corporation with
which lie has been associated from Its
Infancy, and with which he has grown
to seo It take tlte foremost place amongst .the .great transportation companies ot the world.

Oranges were for some yeara a prohibited fruit in Holland. When the

law forbidding llm sale of oranges

destroy them. This prohibition remained iu force until 1806, when Napoleon made his brother Louis King

fatal In results. The shock to the
human Bystem is more than moat people can stand, and everywhere yuu
hear sneezing and coughing.
You may be sure that some of
these colds will develop into pneumonia or consumption. Others will
settle on the kidneys, and result In
serious disease or bring on rheumatic
or bodily pains.
The danger is in letting colds run
on. ',By beginning promptly with Dr.
Chase's Syrup of Unseed and Turpentine and taking small doses frequently you can keep the cough loose,
check the inflammation, and soon rid
the system entirely of atho cold, nnd
ull the many possibilities for evil
which it possesses.
Don't think that anything is good
enough for a. cold. There are lots
of cough mixtures. Hut if you want
a standard medicine of proven merit,
something that you can depend on in
time of sickness, yon will be satisfied
with Dr. Chase's Syrup of Unseed
and Turpentine.

The last geographical mystery out-
tide the Arctic and Antarctic is said
to be New Guinea, where a wide Held
1- open to hardy explorers. Lofty
mount-ins, broad rivers, new animals,
birds, and orchids, a volcano, and
much ground untrod by white men
await the adventurous. There it no
need to go beyond that portion formerly known as British New Guinea,
now named Papua. Papua is the
only grandchild ot the British Umpire, the only colony ot a colony.
The financial responsibility of the
territory was taken over by Australia
in 1001, and not the least difficulty Is
the living down ot a bad name. It
is no place tor the invalid, but for
the hardy there is gold, rubber, eugar,
copper, cocoa, cotton, timber, and
many other money-making materials,
tho latest to be discovered being coal
and petroleum. With a view to ob-.
taining information of Use to Intending settlers, a representative ot The
London Telegraph called at the offices
of the Commonwealth ot Australia,
and saw the Hon. Staniforth Smith,
Administrator ot the Territory ol Papua, who had just arrived in London.
The white population, he said, was
increasing, as were imports, exports,
tonnage ot ocean-going vessels entered
and cleared at ports, area under cultivation, and revenue. The gold yield
to date, from the institution ot British rule, wat over *5,000,000. Ths
copper field was not yet sufficiently
developed to form an opinion as to its
ultimate value. An export trade in
timber had been successfully inaugurated, and just before be left reports were received ot the discovery
ot petroleum in two districts widely
separated. Coal, apparently ot good
quality, had been found over a very
large area, but whether it was accessible enough for immediate development he could not say until further
investigations were made. All white
people of good constitution could livs
there continually and maintain their
health, provided the cool and bracing
climate of the'mountains and table
lands of the interior was made accessible. Steps had been taken in that
direction, and schools had been established for white children, rhere was
money in the millions ot acres ol
Papua, but at present not tor the
poor man. Anything Irom $10,000 was
sufficient to make a competence in a
few years.  The gold was m the soil.
Papua was a natural home of the rubber tree.
Reverend Romany.
In a little-known corner ol the Lincolnshire Wolds (England) lives 'the
romany rasbul (parson)," as the gypsies designate Rev. George Hall, rector of Ruckland, near Louth. Mr.
Hall may be described as a kind ol
apostle to the gypsies, lor few men
have so thoroughly won the contldeuce
of theso nomads. He is a pa.
master ol their manncrt and
customs. He speaks the old Romany
tongue with winch George Barrow has
familiarized the readers ot "Laven-
gro." At timet, when on Bit visits
to fairs and encampments, Mr. Hall
almost adopts the gypsy's attire, and
on more than one occasion his un-
conventional appearance has caused
him to be mistaken by Gorgios (non-
gypsies) for the real thing, and treated accordingly.
An enthusiastic member ot tho Gypsy Lore Society, he is sometimes to be
seen squatting in a ring ot swarthy
Romany folk around their Ure on bp-
som Downs, or on the breezy fells ol
Yorkshire, sampling the raystcrioui
contents of the black stockpot. This
is done with a view to picking up
crumbs oi the fast-disappearing lore
and traditional tales of the Romanies.
He is able to recount a great many
racy stories of gypsy life and adventure. A firm believer in the efficacy
ot the open-air lite, Mr. Hall ban
himselt slept In a gypsy tent of Im
own construction lor seven months ai
a time. At a lecturer on his hobby,
he is doing much to break down prejudice and to create sympathy lot
these strange survivors ol au old-
world race.

that agitated tlie breasts of officers
and men when, mi the formation of

give tlie latter ten buttons—placed
four, four, and two. The reader may

"Belts, belts, belts," are the usual
weapons employed to settle regimental quarrels, as Kipling reminds us;
and the writer remembers how, in
tlie 'eighties, the Yorkshires turned
out to trounce thc Surreys with the
buckle-ends of these adornments over
a question as to which regiment had
the best canteen songster.
The old system oi sending nut pic-
quets to scour the towns for disorderly men was undoubtedly provocative
of much regiment}} rioting.
This reached such a pitch iu one
garrison tliat the general conceived
the idea of sending out nightly strong
picqnets from each of the rival regiments, whilst ordering all not on duty
to keep to their barracks. Hut still
the number oi men in each regiment
with black loyes and gashed cheeks
grew and grew.
And then the truth leaked out—the
rival piequels were in the habit of
passing the night by battering eaeh
otlier calmly and methodically, like
workmen carrying out a contract.
Two Highland regiments, having
disputed about a point nf spurt, and
not wishing to violate their common
nationality by a general "set-to," deputed the biggest man in each regiment to light tin, matter nut. This
task was tackled so grimly, however,
that the fight went ou for hours and
hours, and, as it looked like lasting
for ever, it was decided to call in a
medical man to see which had received tlie worse pummelling.
The doctor—he was a civilian, ol
course—found one of the fighters half
dead, and the regiment owning the
nther pugilist therefore claimed the
victory, but in such a good spirit that
they subscribed enough money to
place both men iu (lie hands of the
doctor for treatment on the spot.
There have olten been equally serious results.
For instance, in Jubilee year, the
vanquished leader of one band ol
regimental rioters waited outside the
