 TWELFTH YEAR-No. 42
A MET NlttLl
Doukhobor Body Interned at
Nisht, Is Subsequently
,..    Exhumed
below normal. Hence, there hat-
been crowded in tbe July buying
movement orders tbat would have
been spread under ordinary circumstances over a tbree months' period.
After many years of patient waiting, tbe citizens of Grand Forka are
rzjoicing over the fapt that the provincial government has at last made
an attempt to enforce the laws of
tbe lsnd against a colony of alien!
in this district. Tbe outcome will
be awaited with keen interest.
It is well known here that tbe
Doukhobors bury their dead at
night, and without securing the
necessary permission. Early in tbe
week it became known that a member of tbe colony died, aod tbe members of a committee of Orand Forks
citizens made up tbeir minds to attend the funeral. To carry out tbis
program sentinels were placed at tbe
house where tbe death had occurred,
and a party was sent out to lind the
secret graveyard. Tbe latter were
finally successful in discovering a
newly made grave about a mile
from Mr. Tweddle's former residence, wbere the body of tbe dead
person was kept. The members
of the committee kept their vigils
tbe greater part of Wednesday
night.
About 4:40 in the morning, just
before daybreak, the funeral pro
ce. sion reached the grave. Tbe body
was borne in a blaok casket, witb
white trimmings. From ils size, it
tyas evident that the deceased was
a cbild. After the body had been interred the work of the watchers waa
ended, and they returned to the
city and notified the authorities.
During their night watch some of
tbem felt decided uncomfortable,
and if some one started a ghost
story there is no telling what would
have happened.
Acting on instructions from tbe
attorney-general's department in Victoria, Provincial Constable Stans-
field, of Phoenix, and Chief Savage
went out to the burial grounds yesterday afternoon aod disinterred tbe
casket and brought it to this city.
The body is said to to be in ao advanced state of decomposition.
Coroner Black, of Greenwood, arrived in the'sity today for tbe purpose of holding an inquest. After
selecting a jury and administering
the oath, be adjourned tbe case until Monday, and ordered a postmortem examination of tbe body to
be made.
Tbe next move of the government
is eagerly awaited here.
Dewdney-Ferguson
Walter R. Dewdney, government
ageut at Greenwood, and Miss Kathleen Ferguson, of Midway, were
united in marriage at the home of
tbe bride's parents at the latter place
on Wednesday morning, August IS,
Rev. J, R. Munro performing the
ceremony. Mr. Dewdney, who is a
nephew, of Hon. Edgar Dewdney,
formerly lieutenant-governor of
British I'olumbia, was employed as
clerk ia the government offloe in
this city for a decade, and has a
large number friends bere wbo will
wish him and bis bride joy and
prosperity. After the ceremony
breakfast was served, and tbe happy
couple left for Victoria and Vancouver, where tbey will spend their
honeymoon.

Heavy Sales of Copper
Excepting only the extraordinary
sales of 1007, there bas been in full
awing during the pact three weeks
a record-breaking copper buying
movement, in wbich between
one hundred and two hundred
million pounds of the metal

prioes ranging from 14 to 15} cents
a pound. No signs of a let-up bave
yet appeared, and producers predict
that even higher prices will follow
further buying. During June there
was practically no copper buying by
either foreign or domestic coneuni-
ers, while dnring the preceding
month pf May the bookings were far

The Bee and the Apple Tree
Wben a thoughful man Nets teetb
into s juicy apple he owes thanks
not to ths apple tree alone nor to the
grower. Recent experiments bave
plainly borne out what apiarists already had plausibly conjectured. It
appears that in the marriage of the
blossoms, or, ss a botanist would
say, in their pollination by one another—that mysterious intermingling without which no apple blossoms can develop into seeds and
core and fine-grained flesh—there is
a matchmaker and literal go between
—the familiar honey bee.
Professor Wangb, a national _ authority on orcharding, but himself.
no prepossessed lover or keeper of
bees, haa exposed among apple trees
through the time of blossoming
plates of glass coated witb   vaseline.'
He found that tbese traps caught no
pollen, no matter how tbe wind blew
upon them from tbe flower-crowded
trees. He drew the unavoidable
conclusion tbat tbe pollen of apple
blossoms, unlike the -pollen of Indian corn, is not carried by the air,
but must be borne, like the pollen
of orchids, by the visiting insects.
And in the days of blossom time,
early and cool as they usually are,
the hot-footed honey bee is aimoat
the only Johnny, or Jenny rather,
on the spot.
Most people know that the cucumber vines trellised under glass will
nnt set their fruit unless a oniony of
bees has heen brought in to fertilize
one yellow blossom from another.
Few of ua, however, have supposed
that ordinary apple - trees, growing
in sun and wind beneath tbe open
sky, would also be cheated of their
fruit were they not helped by the
golden-dusted bees..

er's National bank, awaiting tne result of diamond drill exploration.
Tbe group comprises fifteen claims
and tbe Granby company already
has a diamond drill at work. Tbe
contract stipulates that no less than
$28,000 shall be expended in ex

Hope Mountain Link of K.V.
R. and G.N*R. Will Cost
$30,000,000
One of the most important railway
contracts as affecting the future of
Grand Forks and tbe the southern
portion of tbe province was signed
in Vancouver last Friday. The
Kettle Valley Railway company,
after several days of consideration,
by the president, J. J. Warren, decided to let the contract for the construction of tbe company's line from
Coldwater Junction east of tbe Hope
mountains down tbe valley of the
Coquehalla river to the town of
Hope. The firm of McArthur Bros.,
of New York, proved to be the lowest out of maoy tenderers.
This link is really tbe most important in the solution of the transportation problem of British Columbia. It will bring this city into
easy access with tbe coast cities and
make accessible localities which now
cannot be reached within two or
three days. Wben completed, Grand
Forks will be a divisional point on
the main line of tbe Canadian Pacific railway, and the distance between Winnipeg and Vancouver will
be shortened by nearly three hundred miles.
This section of the Kettle Valley
railway will be used in joint by tbe
Canadian Pacific railway and tbe
Great Northern, each road bavin g
equal running rights thereon.
Tbe contract exceeds $3,000,000
for thirty-eight miles of track. It
will involve very heavy rock work
and some. engineering difficulties,
but it bas been agreed upon, after
consultation witb the most expert
engineers of tbe Pacilic coast, as tbe
only route possible and as tbe cheapest in the long run.
Tbe McArthur company, wbicb
was represented io Vancouver by F.
C. Hitchcock, will begin- work as
soon as it can get its plant together,
and promises to have tbe work finished by November 1 of next year.
The Coquehalla section, considering its sbort length, will probably
be tbe heaviest railway work ever
undertaken in British Columbia.
Tbe thirty-eight miles will cost, it
is estimated, about $3,000,000. For
a considerable distance tbe expenditure will exceed $100,000 a mile. In
tbat short distance no less than
twelve tunnels will have to be
driven.

EXPLORING THE PALATINE HILL
Prof.
Boni Describes Temples Discovered Under Rome
The 2066th anniversary of the foundation of Rome was celebrated this
year by Prof. Boni who lectured on
nm recent excavations on the Palatine-.
The objects of these excavations,
which were started a year ago, Is
twofold, the exploration of the original structure of the historical hill on
which Rome was built and the discovery of traces left by its earliest inhabitants. ..
The results so far obtained may be
briefly explained as follows. By
rontons of deep borings reaching down
to the original rock of the hill three
separate series of pita or cellars of unknown ancient temples were discovered and the development of the dwell-
lut;.-. In different periods could bo followed from the rough huts ot the
flrst inhabitants to tho humble bouses
ot the early republic, which were
gradually transformed and enlarged
until they were changed to the palatial mansions of the empire. Practically every building on the Palatine
was erected over edificeB of earlier
periods. In the basilica of t.ie Pal-
act- of Domltian traces of an exedra
built by Nero were found, and underneath were the piscina or water tanks
divided into Ave compartmenta, which
cut through the walls of a republican
house with frescoed walls.
In the vestibule the- foundations of
the Imperial throne were discovered
cutting through the walls of three
palaces built '.n different perlods'over
a republican house richly decorated
with rare marbles. Still deeper
down the favlasae or pita ot ancient
temples were found, with traces of
hroken pottery Identified aa dating
from the fifth century, B.C. The explorations carried on in the house
of the Flavil are of the utmost lm-
pnrmni". for tho topographical study
of the Palatine IUU, and although no
great discovery of statue and works of
art has been made, since everything
was plundered during the sixteenth
nnd seventeenth centuries, when extensive digging for treasure waa undertaken, historical buildings have
heen Identified. The house of Tiber-
ins, for instance, haa been identified,
and underneath it ia tbe pit used i.s
a prison where Drusus was starved to
death.
He Knew Her

your wife to become a Suffragette.
Yes, replied Mr. Meekln, if I can
thoroughly convince her that I deaire
her to march and make speeches maybe she'll get resentful and refuse to
do ao.
TO   MAKE   SHIPS   ROLL
Gyroscopes on Lake Boata Might Prevent Their Freezing
Most novel ot all the applications
of the gyroscope that have boen proposed In tbe last few years Is the
use of a pair o: mighty gyroscopes to
make a ship roll, so that In passing
through icefields it will not freeze
tight. The possibility that this will
make traffic possible on the Great
Lakes -during the winter has been
suggested among ship engineers,
though there, are other difficulties to
winter lake traffic besides lake freezing.
On the car ferry Ashtabula, which
operates on the lakes such a pair of
gyroscopes have been Installed by Elmer A. Sperry, the leading authority
ln America on this peculiar force, aud
the Inventor of the gyroscope compasses that are being supplied to
many ships of the navy. The apparatus on the Ashtabula serves the
double purpose of restricting or diminishing the rolling of the vessel
when the water is rough, and of causing rolling when water is quiet and
th.re Is danger that the vessel may
be caught ln the Ice,
The big gyroscopes are placed low-
In the vessel, and with their attachments, weigh fifty-one tons. Not much
power is required to keep the heavy
wheels revolving at high speed; and
bo long as they are revolving the rolling of the vessel Is controlled. A
very sensitive pendulum automatically manages the big wheels. As the
pendulum swings lt causes the big
gyroscopic wheels to turn slightly In
such a way as to diminish the ship's
rolling; or lf lt Ib desired to make the
ship roll the pendulum can be made
to awing—and, ln turn, tbla will move
the gyroscopes and make the vessel
roll.
Mr. Sperry believes the method of
controlling the rolling ot a ship by
great tanks of water on the deck bo
connected tbat the water flows from
ono to another at the desired moment
la not a satisfactory solution, for he
haa discovered that the rolling of a
ship In a heavy sea Ib not regular
It will start at a slight degree and
then work up to a heavy roll, reaching the climax in perhaps a dozen
swings, then diminish again to tbe
slight rolling. By the use of the pendulum, however, each rolling motion
ia met with just the right amount of
gyroscopic action needed for that one
roll. ■

In Suffragette Daya
Dr. Lyman Abbott told at a recent
luncheon tn New York, an anti-suffrage anecdote.
Two suffragettes, he said, were
talking ono evening at the club over
a game of billiards'
How is your husband ? the flrst asked.
Slowly mending, thank you, the
other answered.
Slowly mending? I didn't know he
was 111.
He Isn't 111, the other suffragist explained, laughing heartily. He ls
slowly, mending ray khaki riding-
breeches.
A portable searchlight, supplied with
gas from jr. tank carried on a man's
back, has been Invented to enable
linesmen to see to the tops ot poles

When the young husband reached
home from the office he found his
wife In tears.
Ob, John, she sobbed on his shoulder. I had baked a lovely cake and
put It out on the back porch for the
frosting to diy and tbe dog ate It!
Well, don't cry about It, sweetheart,
he consoled, patting the pretty flushed
cheek. I know»a man wha will give

London'a Champion Timekeeper
While the British Postmaster-General ts worrying about a scheme for
synchronizing clocks from Greenwich,
'London's Champion Timekeeper,' a
title which might -well be bestowed upon Mies Belleville, afill continues to
act, as she has done for many years,
aa purveyor of the correct time In the
Metropolis. Every week she calls at
tho Greenwich Observatory with a
chronometer which surely muat be the
roost perfect specimen ot watchmaker's art in the world. This Is checked according to the official time, after
which Miss Belleville carries the
watch round to her clients that they
may ac. their clocks by lt.
Mlsa Belleville, with her wonderful
chronometer cuts time down to finer
distinctions than any synchronized
clock cun aspire to. When taken to
the Observatory a few days ago It waa
found to have varied during tbe week
by only 010 ot a second, nn Inappreciable difference in time to the ordinary citizen, but quite enough to make
a variation of value to her clock-making clientele, to whom ahe communl-
c-tiiPB the fractions of a second by
which the nautical and other highly-
listed time registers they may have
under observation have varied in a
week. *
Miss Belevlllo's chronometer haa
never been known to deviate more
than fifteen seconds from Greenwich
time ln a week, and thia after being
carried all over London In train, 'bus,
and electric tram.
Her unique occupation has an interesting family hlBtory. It appears
that Mlsa Belleville's father, about
halt a century ago, obtained permission from the then Aatronomer Boyal
to hurry from the Observatory, where
he was employed to chronometer-makers to give them the minute to a tenth
of a aecond. Her mother took up the
curious occupation on Mr. Belleville's
death, and now their daughter carries
on the business.       H-_^-_HHh
A little four-year old girl whose
parents had been discussing an approaching meeting in connection with
the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty toNChildren begged to bo taken. Her mother explained that th-
meetlng would not amuse her, but sbe
persisted In her demand, and finally
her mother agreed -to take ber it she
promised to be very quiet.
She was very good throughout, the
greater part of the proceedings, but
after listening patiently to the speech
es for some time she whispered to
ber mother:
Mummy, this ls dull. When Is the

Tea and Coffee Finally Had to Go
The way Eome persons cling to tea

are doing them harm, Is a puzzler.
(Tea la just aa harmful because It contains caffeine, the same drug found
ln coffee), But lt ln an easy matter
to give lt up for good, when Postum

A Scientific Co.igreaa
Special interest attache., to next
year's meeting of the Assoc!:'.Ion
Francalse pour l'Advancement des
Sciences which Is to be held at
Havre, probably Septerhber 4th, to
12th. A large number of British societies are to take part in tbe meeting.
There are 160 British societies affiiat-
ed with the British Association for
the Advaucemen of Science, and lt
has been the custom for these societies to hold a conference ln London
whenever the ,-ssoclation Itself met in
aome far distant city—aB In the case
of the meetings at Winnipeg and ln
South Africa. (Strange ts "Say the
British Assocatlon has nev - met ln
London). Now il happens tbat In
1914 ttae British Association meets In
Australia, and comparatively few
members will be able to make tbe
long and expensive Journey, aside,
from those whose expenses are to be
paid out ot funds raised for this purpose in Australia. Accordingly, ts
Havre la comparatively near England,
It has been decided to hold the conterence ot delegates from the affiliated
societies at that place, In conjunction
with the meeting of the French association. It is hoped that American
scientific .oclttl'es will also be represented at this joint meeting.

Milking Machines
The milking machine is becoming
a recognized part of the equipment of
large dairies. It has already reached the point where lt compares favorably with ordinary hand milking In
the item of germ content of the milk
ahd in its effect upon the flow. There
is still much room for Improvement
from the mechanical viewpoint especially in the matter of simplicity and
expense of lnati.ll_.tlon.
The success of tbe milking machine
Is closely associated with the personality of the operator. Unquestionably it takea a higher grade man to
operate a milklnr. machine successfully than to hand-i. Ilk a cow equally
well. There ls every reaaon to think
that In the hands of careless operators the machinery will work injury
to the cows, but the samo result ia to -
often obtained from inefficient (iand-
milking.

There was once a chap who .went
skating too early, and all of a sudden
that afternoon loud cries for help began to echo among the bleak hills that
surrounded the skating pond.
A farmer, obbling hla boota before
hla kitchen fire, heard tho ahouts and
yells and ran to the pond at. breakneck speed. He saw a large black
hole In the Ice and a pale young fellow stood with chattering teeth shoulder deep In the cold water.
The farmer laid a board on the thin
ice, and crawled out on it to the edge
of the hole. Then extending his hand
he said:
Here, come over this way, and I'll
lift you out.
No, 1 can't swim, was the Impatient
reply. Throw a rope to me. Hurry
up.     It's cold hi here.
I ain't got no rope, said the farmer,
aud he added angrily: What If you

STRUGGLE WITH HIVE LEOPARDS
Officers of   Storm-Toaaed    Freighter
Lasaoo Animate Releaaed by
Lightning
While a terrific storm raged ..bout
them, tossing their big freighter about
like a cork ln the ocean, six officers
of the GertULii steamship Rhelnfels,
[which, arrived recently In Philadelphia
from Calcutta, battled fo. five hours
before they succeeded in aubdutng five
frenzied leopards whioh had escaped
from their cages.
During the storm all, hands had been
ordered on deck by Capt. Albert kuc-
kens, and when lightning struck the
poop deck lt knocked the leopard
cages down ln the midst ot the 48
men.
* With a scream of fright the men
took to the rigging, kicking, cursing
ahd fighting ln an effort to climb to
a place of safety. In an Instant only
the six officers were left on deck. One
stoker, seized by fear when he saw the
loose leopards, leaped Into the aea
and was drowned.
Around and around the battered
deck the quintet of leopards rated,
paying little attention to the group of
six men crouched ln one corner. All
the deck load had been washed into
thc sea, giving the beast sample room
to romp and run. After an bour the
leopards slgLtcd the men and stationed themselves ln front of them,
evidently Intending to wait until the
storm abated to advance on them.
But the officers thought otherwise.
One crawled from, the. group on his
hands and knees to hla room, procured a rope and returned. Sudden-
ly he threw the rope aeroso the leopards, seated on the'.- haunches a few
feet away. Unprepared for the movement, two ot the beasts were caught
and made fast. Other ropes were
secured, but it was not tntll three
hours later that the last of the leopards waa captured and placed In another cage.
In the same cargo ot wild beasts
were two giraffes and two antelopes.
Their cag.s were shattered, but they
remained quLtly on the poop deck
and watched the fight.

FIRE IN STOVE 70 YEARS
Primitive Cooking Apparatus in Cornwall, England
Incredible cs lt may seem to us
who have at cur command every sort
of labor saving machine and device
that It ls possible to conceive, there
are some parts ot the world—and not
thc most remote, either—wh9re many
of the ordinary tasks ot lite are accomplished In almost Identically the
same way that they were centuries
ago, says a wilier in Gas Logic. Travellers ln foreign countries bave frequently told f surprising Instances
of this kind which they have met with
In their wanderings-hi out-of-the-way
localities.
A striking Illustration ot the way
In which people who come little Into
contact with modern methods oftentimes cling to ancient and cumbersome ways ot doing things ts afforded
by tho case of a farmer In Cornwall,
England, whose primitive and picturesque cooking apparatus has attracted
attention.
Tho fuel used tn the atovo Is neither coal nor wood, but | jat. No other
fuel has been burned ia it. The
Cornish farmer declares that to his
k-owledge the fire ln It has not been
out ln seventy yeara.
When the farmer's family have any
cooking to do, the ombera are first
raked flat, and an Iron plate I.i placed
over them. The dough Is then put
Into a tin, which Is placed upon the
iron plate, the tin being covered over
with a big Iron pot. The whole ts
covered with embers and In eighty
minutes' time, It Is said, the bread
Is perfectly baked.
.-'!- I —— ■
An Irish number ot parliament Is
telling a story of a man who complained to three friends—an Englishman, a Scotchman, and ah Irishman—
that his servant wan constantly breaking china.
What do yeu think I ought to do
with her? he asked plaintively.
The pras.lcal Englishman said: Dis-
miss her! B,it as she was otherwise
an excellent servant her master waa
unwilling to do that.
Then take lt out of her wages, aug-
gestet. the thrifty Scot.
That wouldn't do much good was
the reply, tor her wagea are bss tban
the amount ot damage she does.
Then raise her wag***! said tha
Irishman promptly.
TOLD BY HIS TEETH
Teethma.ks More Reliable In Crime
Detectloiy-fhan Flngtr Prlnta
The case of the burglar who was
recently identified ln Paris by the
marks of his teeth ln some fruit he
had bitten and left behind, led a London dentist to comment on the value
of the teeth and palate tor purposes'
of Identification. It recalls, too, the
researches of Dr, Paul Prague, of
Vienna, who more than five years ago
declared that a long series ot experiments demonstrated that the palate
never changes trom childhood to old
age, and that Identification by this
means ls even more certain than by
means of finger-prints.
The gums and palate, said the dentist referred to, are an infallible test of
identity. No matt.-r how a person
changes ln facial expression and In
general appearance, the gums and
palate remain to assure him and others that his identity Is the same. The
sooner this fact is realized the better
tor one can state no limit to its usefulness. Here is a case that came
directly under my own notice.
A man of considerable wealth and
ot high social standing went on a tour
to Africa. He disappeared,.- and
though every effort was maCe to trace
him he could not be found. Meanwhile difficulties arose concerning the
disposition of his property. There
was no evidence of his death, and presumption ot death waa retuaed by the
court. Reports arrived later to the
effect that he had been murdered by
native's and It was stated tt... his body
had been burled in an African village.
Ae It happened, I had made the man
a set Of teeth and still retained the
cast ot the mouth. The man's brother went out, returned with the skull
and I found that the cast I had taken
fitted thc mouth of the dead man.
That waa sufficient. The death was
presumed, and the estate duly administered.
The palate test Is Infallible, and
ahould be used by our detectives. A
cast of the mouth of every criminal
could easily be taken, and would
prove more effective und reliable than
the much-vaunted finger-print tystem.

The frequent and unsuccessful candidacy of certain men for public office reminded Oeorge Dore ot a atory

Mr. Dore. He was fairly successful
In disposing ot tickets In the shop

against trouble when he canvassed the

Dropping ln at a neighbor's home
he tried to aell a ticket on tho clock.
It'a a folne timepiece -nd It'll look

In taking 450 British song birds to
British Columbia ls an expert bird
whistler. It appears that it is no uncommon thing for a man who keeps
a bird fancier's shop Si be able to
whistle a distinct series of bird notes.
At the beginning of each teries says
The Daily Citizen, describing the work
of the professional blrd-whistler, the
different feathered tribes whose cages
completely covered the walls took up
the lay, piping as lt their little hearts
would break with joy. When tho linnets ceased the canaries, hearing the
notes of the man-whistler, broke Into
full-throated song. Then when the
expert started to whistle skylark notes
the Imprisoned songsters of the heavens (orgot their captivity and gavo the
sun, peeping shyly in between the
closed blinds, a melodious welcome.
It appears that when a bird is caught
and put Into a cage it is very apt to
sulk. and become miserable, this Is
where the blrd-whlstler comes ln useful. He Imitates the tones ct whatever kind of bird this one happens to
be, and the little prisoner, thinking
it has company, forgets all his troubles and breaks Into a song of joy.
Sometimes the blrd-whlstler can
teach one bird another bird's song.
One man taught a goldfinch to- sing

Why Clacks Stop
The reason why mant lplece clocks
so often get out of order is so obvious
that It is nuge that attention to it
lias not been drawn before. A clock-
maker said:
It Is because mantelpieces arc rare,
ly level. If a clock meant for a
.rantelpieee is not placed ln an exact
ly horizontal position it is surj to go
wrong. When the clock gains or
loses because of its slanting position,
people regularly move the hands forward or backward, as the caso may
be, ii. order to adjust it. Eventually
the clock's hands are moved about sc
much that the mechanism gets out of
order, and thc clock refuse.- even to
tick.
Wntclies and travelling clocks aro
constructed differently from the stationary clock, and they wl'.. go in any
position. That ls why they are relied upon more than the ornamental
mantelpiece clock.

GOOD HEALTH
Keep tke Blood RicVand Pure
with Dr. Williams' Pink Pil's
The condition ot the blood makes
all the difference between health and
sickness. Impure blood and strong
healthy nerves and muscles never go
together, lf the blood is thin every
part of the body tacomes weak. The
storr jch falls in strength and the appetite becomes poor. The body does
not obtain enough, nourishment from
the food, nnd soon''the nerves begin
to complain and the person becomes
Irritable, despondent, worn out and
nervous. For a time there may be
no actual sickness, only a run-down
weak condition, but there is no defence against disease and from such
a condition spring disorders such as
anaemia, rheumatism, Indigestion,
neuralgia, and even paralysis itself.
People with impure, thin blood
should take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People. Every dose helps
to make new, rich blood, and new
blood means health and strength.
They stop the progress of disease, and
red cheeks, good appetite, new
strength, declare the general improvement in the health. Here ls an example. Miss Ellen Maude McQuo-
dale, Harrlston, Ont., says: "I feel
it my duty 11 add my voice to the
many new recommending Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. For years I was
a sufferer with backache**'' rheumatism and nervousness. I was so bad
at times that I was confined to my
bed. I felt sleepy and heavy after
my meals, and had flashes of* light before my eyes, and a difficulty in collecting my thoughts. After using
several remedies without benefit I began using Dr. Williams" Pink PIUs
and used ten or twelve boxes ln all.
They gave me the best health I have
enjoyed for yeaiB, and I have not
sinco had the least return ot the
trou.le."
You can get these Pills from any
dealer tn medicine or by mall at 60
cents, a box or six boxes for $2.50
from The Dr. Williams' Mediclue Co.,

In the Spring
the Blood is Thin
The body ot man can be Influenced
In health or disease only through the
medium of two channels—the blood
and the nerves.
When the blood Is thin and watery,
sb It usually Is In the spring, tho
nerves are starved and depicted, and
every organ in the human body ls les.i
capable ot performing Its natural
functions.
The action ot the heart weakens,
breathing Is weaker, the gustrlc juices
ot the stomach do not flow regularly,
the liver, kidneys and bowels are less
active, and In fact the whole body
tails au easy victim to disease.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food goes directly to the formation ot new, rich '

Ths  Australian   Lyn   Bird.
The Queen Victoria Lyre bird is one
ol the rarest Australian birds, and ia
a most wonderful songster and mimic,
far surpassing any other in these respects. Never common, it is continually becoming scarcer on account of
It. peculiar habits. Almost all ot Its
life ia spent on the ground, the nests
art built on or very nesr the ground,
and to make its continued existence
still more uncertain, only one egg is
laid. Foxes, which were introduced
Into Australia to lurnish amusement
for the early colonists who could net
give up their English ideas of- sport,
have practically exterminated the
Lyre birds, ot which there are tbree
species.
These birds are ot dull, though very
beautiful plumage, the tails being especially wonderful. First discovered
IIS years sgo, they were thought to
be birds ot paradise but it was soon
sesn that no bird ot paradise had any
such, peculiar tail and the Lyre bird
was recognised as constituting a class
by himself. Only the males have the
lyre-shape tall, and It fs only fully
developed when the bird is four years
old.
MILITARY DISCIPLINE,
Commanders'   Methods   ef   Keeping
Order Differ Very Widely.
That the diseiplinary methods of
military commanders differ widely was
shown by two British officers who
died within a few days. It used to
be said of Sir Frederick Carrlngton,
whose muscular prowess was famous,
that when an alleged offender waa
brought before him he would solemnly resolve himself into a court-martial,
call for a statement from the accuser,
and then demand of the accused:
"Did you do this?" As denials were
proverbially useless, the answer was
commonly, "Yes, sir." "Then tske
that—and that—and that I" and tba
combined judge and executioner
would rain blow upon blow till convinced that a sufficient penalty had
been inflicted.
Lord Wolseley, on the other hand,
was rather scrupulous about the for-
Lmal preliminaries, and always aimed
to make the punishment fit the crime.
One morning he delivered an address
to his men on parade, warning them
against carelessness of attire, especially when under the view of the civilian
publio. .The next day he was halted
by three of his own men on guard
at the barrack gate, who refused to
let him pass out because he was wearing only one spur. He was so delighted at their literal application of
his orders that he presented them on
the spot with a sovereign apiece,
warning them not to spend any of- it
on drink. Within a few hours the
trio were brought before him, under
arrest for intoxication. '
"If y'r hon'r 'adn't gi'n us the
money," said their spokesman, frankly, "we'd 'a' been all right."
Wolseley pondered the situation a
few minutes, and then answered:
"You are riglit. I was a fool to expect anything else. You will now
right about, and march in charge of
this sergeant .to the savings bank,
where he will stand over you till you
have deposited every penny in your
pockets!"
Perhaps the best of sll the barrack-
lore clustered about Wolseley's name
has to do with an order he issued
during thc Egyptian occupation, when
be posted a guard around the harem
of a local potentate. A brother officer, strolling into an adjacent garden,
was hailed by a sentinel: "Hi, sir;
you mustn't go there, sir!"
"Don't you see who I am?" protested the officer; "I am Col. Blank ot
the ."
" "Yes, sir, I know," interrupted the
trooper, respectfully; "but they's led-
dies livin' in thst 'ouse, an' th' borders f'm Sir Garnet is that 'e's not to
be let go in there 'isself—no matter
'ow bad he wants to.'"
A Big Incubator.
The largest egg incubator in the
United Kingdom, one with a capacity
for 3,000 eggs. Is now at work on a
poultry farm in Kent. The appliance
is iu reality a succession of incubators joined, operated and controlled

pot. The cost of running the incubator Is not more than Is, 3d. a

\
A Bird Disciplinarian.
' For an example of the wisest ot all
msde creatures in dealing with the
frivolities of the weaker sex, tbe
horntiill. an uncouth bird of Africa
and India, is the most striking. The
hornbill drills itself a hole into the
hollow of some old tree when itis
nesting time. There it builds a comfortable nest and in due course the
eggs are deposited therein by its mate.
When they are all in place and the
necessity arises of sitting on them for
the necessary weeks, the male hornbill
drives its mate Into the nest and proceeds to erect a wall of perfectly good
masonrf across the aperture to keep
her tbere. In this wall h left one
small slit. It is just large enough for
the female to put her bill out through
it. The c-.ale bird does not forget, his
responsibility and gathers food for
his captive. This lie brings to the
nest. The captive puts her bill
through the slit and the food is deposited therein. So does the master
of the flock assure himself thst the
female of his household is not to be
allowed to gel careless with th; eggs
and possibly allow the young birds
in them to come to, harm. When the
young ones are hatched the male tears
out his masorry wall and the mother
is liberated.
Hussars Once Freebooters.
Hussars were originally scarcely respectable enough to include a Prince
of Wales among their numbers, for
the word hussar is akin to corsair, and
the flrst hussars were simply freebooters. As part of the regular army
the hussar appeared in Hungary in
1458, when King Matthias Corvinus
raised a corps of light horse under
that name to fight against the Turks.
The name and fame of the Hungarian
hussars spread throughout Europe,
and Frederick the Great was not above
sending an officer to study their work.
The English hussar dates from '1803,
when the Seventh regiment was converted from light dragoons into hussars.—Westminster Gazette.

A CELEBRATED SC00R,
George Gregg Was Late and Get Naw*
•f D'Arcy McGee Murdsr.
It-is just forty-five years sgo tbat
the late Hon. D'Arcy McGee was,
assassinated on Sparks street, Ottawa, on the spot where now stands
the departmental store of Bryson,
Graham tt, Co., and although there *
has been talk year after year in re-1
card to erecting a suitable memorial'
to the renowned Irish-Canadian orator, statesman and patriot, it looks
as if another session pt the House
will elapse and nothing be done in
this direction. In the Reference Library on College street, Toronto, file*
of The Leader of April 7, 1868, may
be found. The edition ot that dat*
contained one of the greatest scoops
ever recorded in the annals of Canadian journalism, and yet this exclusive news item was.printed under
modest single column, head lines.
How different would be the displsy
to-day, when even the closure measure
commands a caption four ai_4 five
columns wide, in type an inch or
more deep. Dr. George H. • Locke,
Chief Librarian, regards this file of
The Leader as among the most historic possessions in the library. The
stirring tragedy of McGee's death,
who was shot down just as he was
entering his boarding-house, and
whose body was found, lifeless, on
the pavement, occurred shortly after
two o'clock in the morning. The noted
Parliamentarian had just finished a
brilliant two-hour speech in the Com-,
mons upon the Nova Scotia question,
in which he had uttered the loftiest
sentiment of loyalty to the crown and
devotion to the country. He had expressed the hope that the deep sense
of loyalty of the people of that province would induce them to forsake
their attitude of hostility and unite
with the rest of the provinces in
building up a Canadian nationality.
The newspaper man, who scored the
great beat on McGee's lamentable
death, was the late George Gregg, who
was then Ottawa correspondent for
The Leader. That paper, which was
published until about 1875, was issued on Leader Lane on the very
spot where the Leader Hotel now.
stands on King street cast, Toronto.
The assassination occurred after the
House had adjourned. It had been a
busy night for the representatives in
the Parliamentary Press Gallery,
and, alter completing their work, all
"thc boys" had departed and were in
bed when the murder took place/
Gregg was the only one^to remain.
He was a little late in finishing his
report and was on his way to bis
home when, on reaching Sparks
street, he heard of the shooting. Not
another paper in Toronto or Canada
contained a line that morning regarding the terrible tragedy except The
Leader, and thus was recorded one
ot the greatest scoops ever pulled off
in Canada. George Gregg, the man
who tallied in that great news story,
died himself a few years later under
sad circumstances. He was an enthusiastic curler and, while engaged
in the game, caught a cold which
developed into pneumonia and he
passed away after only a few days'
illness. He was at the time on the
staff of The Toronto Mail, of which
he was one of the founders.
Ons Hundred Francs.
McGillivray "Knowles one of our
well-known Canadian painters, tells
sn amusing story of a curious artist
character, Stcttler, from Belgium,
whom he met in Paris, This artist
was slways hard up. He asked
Knowles for a loan of a hundred
francs, which he was to pay back in
a month. He got the money and at
the appointed time paid it back. In
two days bsck he came again.
"M'sieu Knowles, I should lak to
borrow from you one hundred Irenes,
eh?"
"All right.   Here il is."
Another month and the money was
paid hack. As promptly thc request
came again:
"One hundred francs, please to
oblige, M'sieu Knowles?"
For a whole year Stcttler kept on
borrowing and paying back the hundred francs. When Knowles left
Paris he was obliged to terminate the
arrangement, bnt said:
"Look here, Btettler, if you want to
keep that last hundred francs a while
longer, do so, and send it to me when
you make good."
"Ah, M'sieu Knowles, I must pay
it now. I nevarc mske good. I waa
behind once one hundred francs. I

In That Country.
South Africa, in the recent death of
Sir Gordon Sprlgg, mourns a statesman who had played a distinguished
Sart in the public life of the country,
ir Gordon was Premier of Cape Colony on no fewer than four occasions.
Born in Ipswich in 1830, the son of a
Baptist minister, he began lite in
London u a journalist, and was a
Parliamentary reporter and contributor to various newspapers. When
twenty-eight his health broke down,
and, like Cecil Rhodes, he went to
South Africa in search of health. So
ill was he when he left England that
be had to be carried on tlie ship. Becoming a farmer, he soon become tbe
possessor of great herds of cattle and
sheep. The settler was drawn into
politics, and eleven years after his arrival he was elected to the Cape
House of Assembly. He quickly came;
to the front, and a decade later waa
made Premier. During his first term!
ot office the Basuto war occurred, and;
The Peer Rests.

to the editor.
"Yes, I know they weren't hatched

Sir Gordon did his best to bring it to
a successful conclusion. He worked
energetically in raising scratch volunteer regiments and he was to be seen;
standing on the bridge ol coasting!
vessels', addressing tn magniloquent1
terms the very mixed body ot recruit*.;
During the Boer War Sir Gordon, u,
Premier and Treasurer of Cape Col-;
ony, bad a difficult task. Thia wu
followed by, perhaps, the most momentous campaign of hla career. A'
movement wu started at the close ol
Ihe war for the suspension ot the
Constitution of the Colony. It rapidly gained powerful support, and became the all-absorbing political topia
of South Africa. Sir Gordon Sprigg
and some of his colleagues vigorously
opposed the proposal, in the face of.
much hostility, until eventually Mr.l
Chamberlain, as Colonial Secretary,'
gave bis decision against the suspension. Nevertheless, in the General
Election of 1904, Sir Gordon wu defeated by Dr. Bmartt at East London
by a majority of 964, and, the Progressives winning the election. Dr.)
Jameson formed the new Ministry.'
Sir Gordon attributed hia physical
and nervous strength chiefly to the
(act tbat he wu Suffolk-born.
Radium and Photography.
The alpha and beta rays of radium,
the positive and negative particles into which the atom breaka up, are now
studied by photography. The process
has been developed in recent months
by C. T. R. Wilson, and waa illustrated by Prof. W. H. Bragg, at the lut
meeting of the British Association.
The bit of radium is'held in a short
glass cylinder six inches in diameter,
one end of which is closed with a glaae
filate, wbile a movable piston is fitted

filled with moist air, the piston ia
