Not Breach of Treaty
Ilk tbe opinion ot the Duke of
Sutherland and E. Smith, K.C,
things are beginning to look brighter for tbe Panama canal bill allowing American coast vessels to use
the canal free ot charge. They believe that it implies no breach ot
the Hays-Pauncetote treaty, and
that only the politicians in England
are stirring up trouble about the
matter. "I want to say," tbe duke
is quoted at saying, "that there is
no truth in the stories that England
is annoyed over tbe proposal to exempt American vessels from the
canal •tolls. America bu done a
great work in building the canal,
and it is only right that she - sbould
reap some lateral benefit from it. The
British people bave the utmost con

Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Hansen
Have a Thrilling Experience at Cascade
Chas. Hansen and wife, of Gilpin,
while on tbeir way to Cascade witb
a load of fruit last Tuesday, were
tbe actors in an exciting runaway.
Wben at the top of the steep grade
near Cascade, tbe horses were frightened by a break in tbe harness
wbich released tbe wagon tongue,
and they started down the hill at the
top of tbeir. Mrs. Hansen made a
rapid survey of the conditions in
front of the team. On one Bide was
a yawning precipice and on tbe
other a perpendicular cliff of untold
height. She concluded to jump.
By doing so she escaped injury.
Mr. Hansen stayed with the refractory horses, and guided their course
in the middle of the road balf-way
down the hill. Then he lost his
nerve aud jumped. He landed on
terra firms witb all bones unbroken
A short distance from tbis spot tbe
wagon went over the precipice', and
the team followed tbe circuitous
■findings of tbe road. Strange to
relate, tbe horses are as sound today
as they were in the first chapter of
this bistoriette, and the wagon will
haul many more loads of fruit before it is relegated tbe scrap pile.

Piece of Newton's Apple Tree
The British Royal Astronomical So-f |
ciety has recently become the owner
of an interesting, because apparently
well authenticated, relic of Sir Isaac
Newton. This is a small log from
the apple tree In the garden at Wool-
thorpe, on' which the famous apple
(the most famoua apple since Eve and
ISden, with the possible exception of
those of Helen of Troy and Wilhelm
Tell), grew. Mr. C. W. Waller, of
Burwash, Sussex, who. presented the
log to the society, sent the following
history with it.—Ills father, born In
180?, was at school ivHen ten or
twelve, with the rector of Stoke, Lincolnshire, named Pearson. After a
heavy storm news reached Ihe school
that Sir Isaac's apple tree had blown
down. Thu rector and some of the
bqys at once set.out for Woolthorpa',
which Is not far from Stoke. The.-
fouffil the tree, which for many year,,
had been propped up to preserve it,
lying on the ground. The rector obtained a saw, and cut a number of
small logs from one ot the limbs.
Mr. Waller's father received one of
these and preserved it with great
care until his death, when It came
down as one of the heirlooms to his
Inventions by Royalties
One of the eight daughters of the
Archduke Frederick, the eldeBt brother of the Dowager Queen of Spain,
is taking out a patent for a new form
of candle. She Is only following an
example set by several other royalties. The most successful of these,
Is the Orand Duke of Oldenburg, who
haa patepted a screw which has been
adopted by several German shipping
companies. Prince Henry of Prussia holds the patent of an Invention
for preventing the clouding of wind
screens on niotor cars, and his nephew, the Crown Prince, has patented a
special form of sleeve link. The Kaiser ls credited with the invention of
a brake for automobiles, but up to
the present this has not been patent
ed. /
The Judge's Substitute
Mr. Justice- Isaacs, of the High
Court of the Commonwealth, In appointing his. daughter Nancy as his
associate, evoked considerable discussion in Australia. Searchers after
precedents have been unable to And
one. The duties of an associate In
Australia are to sit in wig and gown
Immediately below tbe judge, to call
the casas, to take charge of the "exhibits" produced In evidence, to
make typewritten copies of reserved
judgments, and generally to act as a
private secretary. There seems no
reason why a smart young Jewess
should not do work of this sort quite
as well as a budding young barrister
of the other sex. Miss Isaacs will
receive a salary of J1600 a year.
Character In Walking
Obstinate people who, in argument
rely more on muscularity than on intellectual power rest the feet flatly
and firmly on the ground, walk heavily and slowly, and stand with legs
firmly planted and far apart. Quick
steps" are Indicative of energy and
agitation. Tiptoe walking symbolizes surprise, curiosity, discretion, or
mystery. Turning-ln toes are often
found wltb preoccupied, absent-minded persons. Tbe miser's walk is re-,
presented as stooping and noiseless,
with short, nervous, anxious steps.
Slow steps, long or short, suggest a
gentle or reflective state of mind.
When a revengeful purpose is hidden
under a feigned smile the step will
be slinking and noiseless. The proud
step is slow and measured, the toes
are conspicuously turned out, the
legs'stralghtened. Where the direction of the step wavers and follows
every changing Impulse of the mind,
It Inevitably betrays uncertainty, hesitation and indecision.

An Oil Without Alsohol.—Some oils

museums undescrlhed, menn nothing.
The same thing Is true to a lessor degree In zoological gardens, and even
art. museums. The provision of a lecturer, sufficiently (and obviously)
scientific or arttsttc, so that the lipping problem was eliminated, would
add enormously to the value of every
public museum. There seems no way
in which the amount of money necessary to secure Ihe services of a really
competent man for this position could
be spent to better advantage.

The crew of the vessel which is setting out. to solve the mystery of the

must steer clear of El Banoor, another
Island of the Pacific. One of our
early explorers, Hugh Arkwrlghi, who
Balled the Pacific In 1581, warns travelers against visiting El Banoor—the
home ot the death flower. This
flower, we are told, Is so large that a
man can stand upright inside one of
Its blossoms. But if he does so he
will surely fall asleep, lulled by the
arrange fragrance it distills. Then
the flower folds lis petals and suffocates bim. And bo he passes into

Every day if Is becoming more and
more evident that the most ruinous
results to the farmers of the West
would follow the- establishment' of
sample maikets for grain at. Winnipeg
and Fort William.
As :. striking instance ot the harm
that would* follow such a move,'was
brougu't out at an investigation of the
traffic congestion on the Canadian
railways before the Railway Commission al Ottawa. In giving their testimony J. W. Leonard ot the C.P.R.
tnd W. H. Biggar of the Qrand Trunk
Pacitlc stated that the congestion was
very largely owing to their inability
lo secure rolling stock from the man-
cifact urers aa fast aa It was required.
All thc car. shops are behind " hand
vith orders. In tact it. is impossible
for the can shops to turn out rolling
stock aa rapidly as the development
ot the country requires lt. In this
Connection _ it was atated that the dl-
-rectors ot one company had author-
toed the expenditure of 119,000,000 In
tolling stock, but could get no firm to
lit the orders.
It will be seen by these statements
vhlcli were uncontradicted, that the'
congestion cf trnffla pr.d car shortages
on the. railways ot the west are owing
to the exceedingly rapid development
of the country rather than to the neglect of the railway companies. And
Ihis wonderful development Is as yet
only In il* early stages, and when it
is completed how will out transportation companies be able to handle the
traffic? The grain congestion Of lasf |
Tall was bad enough but with the Increased acreage under cultivation
.acli year the conditions will grow
flVorse as time passes, unless radical
measures are taken to prfevent it.
With these facts -'In view, what can
lie said of the criminal folly ot establishing a sample market that will
jt one stroke take away twenty-five
per cent of the cars now available
for the grain carrying trade.    Before
many yeara pass ..the grain orop of
the west will be over five hundred million bushels.     And .when that time
comes, even providing that the sample market   Is   a qualified   success,
which is impossible, the twenty-live
per cent loss of cars will'still be as
great in proportion as It would be lf
the sample market were   established
'   today.     Any  intelligent farmer can
ttgare out for himself what the loss
would be to him.   were   the   sample
market established, and the cars detained at Winnipeg as they would be
for from twenty-four   to   forty-eight
hours -on every trip, and how mucb
wheat would he left In his granary
that would/otherwise be shipped, sold
snd paid   for.      Remember   that   It
would mean,   under   ordinary   conditions, that- one bushel out of every
four Is left on his hands at the close
of navigation.
And why. iu the name of ordinary
sommon sense aliould the farmer be
put to-this loss and Inconvenience?
Tliere Is Uo reason^whatever for he
stands to lose at every turn. The
only persons who could possibly be
benefited are the men who would
handle the whest on the sample market, and would mix It and fix It so as
to bring tlie most profit to themselves,
tt Is to the interests of every farm-
Frost & Wood Binders
Widely used everywhere.    Perfect, light running,
meet die hardest conditions of cutting and  binding.
er to carefully study this sample
market'question iu all Its bearings.
At present, the farmer is safeguarded
on every hand by statutory laws
which are fairly well observed, and
the farmer now has full control of
his own wheat on the market. If
he don't Uke to sell to tbe local dealer
for any reason, either on account of
grade or price, he caa ship himself.
The railway companies are compelled
by law to furnish him a car ln his
turn and place it at a loading platform for him. At Winnipeg an honest grade ts assured him by a government inspector and the wheat ls sold
at. a fair market price. Iu short, he
ls mns'er of- tiie situation.
Under tbe system of a sample market the opposite is the case. The
farmer ls master of nothing. His
whe.it goes to Winnipeg, a sample ls
placed on the table in the grain exchange and it Is sold for whatever the
buyer chooses to give him. AU the
guarantees of lair plajr which he now
enjoys are sacrificed, and his grain ls
placed at the disposal of a crowd ot
spectators, who tnree amongst themselves not to bid one against another,
but to play Into each others hands
for their mutual benefit.
An attempt ls being made lo nils-
bad the farmers on this matter, and
false  ideas  and  spurious-arguments
are being used to trap the unwary. It
if tie old game of the spider and the
fly.     They make the statement tbat
wheat which la between grades will
bring a better price   on   a   sample
market for purposes of mixing with
lower qualities.     This is a fallacious
•rgument.     The farmer  knows -4>y
past experience that the only people
to profit by the mixing of grain are
the dealers.     In this regaiM a recent
interview with Mr. J. H. Haslam who
is well known throughout the west is
worthy of careful consideration. Mr.
Haslam wlir has just returned from
Europe states that the western Canadian wheat ls losing Its pre-eminence
on the British market, and he warns
the ^farmers of the west   that   they
must see to it that they send their
best wheat pure to the Old Country If
they wish to retain their hold on the
market and secure the best   prices.
In the light of this, what becomes of
the mixing argument?      Two qualities of wheat cannot be mixed with-
dut lowering one of them, and In doing so you reduce the standard of all.
It must never be forgotten that the
pien who are seeking to establish a
sample market arc the men who have
always sought to exploit the wheat
trado of the west to further their own
Interests and deprive the farmers of
a legitimate price for their grain.
/       Tamed   Birds
Curiosity is a strong    feature    in
most birds.    They wlll*always Investigate auythlng new and bright-looking.
A small blue titmouse we ouce
kept Indoors for a week was a regular Paul Pry. His little body found
its way Into everything. Indeed, he
was nearly drowned because, If a
pitcher was on the table, he was sure
to go Into lt; and to get out again
with wet wings was not easy.
The human voice Is a great assistance in the taming of any wild creature. A soft, gentle tone and kind
manner will go far to win the confidence of birdlsh hearts. It fact,
It is only a matter of time and patience; the wildest specimens will
become friendly.
At flrst their apparent tameness Is
mainly cupboard love, but ln time
It does often result ln real personal
affection. Then it ls delightful to
possess a bird who will welcome your
coming with out-stretched wings and

Shearing Sheep WltH a Machine-
Shearing sheep with a machine Is
practical for most farmers,- says the
Southern Agriculturist. As with any
other machine, a man should have
some knack with machinery to do the
best work. The greatest advantage
In using this method ot shearing is
t'mt you get practically all ihe wool.
During the World's Fair at St. Louis
they had a contest between the old-
fashttfied method of shearing by hand
and the newer one ot clipping the
sheep with the machine. After the
expert hand shearer had finished a
sheep the machine would clip about
thirteen ounces ot wool. So the saving of wool would soon "pay for the
shearing machine.
A man with from 25 to 100 head of
sheep should use the hand machine,
but wilh larger flocks the power machine Is more practical. lf one's
neighbor raise sheep, they can
Install a power plant with a Hue shaft
to run as many machines as they
wish with a small gas engine. When
shearing time comes they can set a
day, collect their flocks and help
each other. I have such a plant In
my barn with three machines run
trom a lino ahaft with a loose pulley,
ao each machine can be operated or
stopped Independently, as the shearer wishes, by shirting the belt from
the tight to tbe loose pully. We shear
with this plant, running three maa-
chlnes, about 200 sheep In a day
with the average farm hands. A
quick, strong young man with practice
Bhould shesr 100 or more, while the
expert will turn off 200 with one machine. But Ihe-average farm hand,
to do a nice job, will average about
76 a tay.
- One of the greatest advantages In
having a shearing plant wilh several
machines la that you shear your
whole flock In a day. thus getting
them back to grass with their lambs.
If you are two or three days shearing ,
there ls considerable loss to the lamb
crop from keeping them up. Machine j
sheared sheep also look much-belter.

Curative Bee's Sting
The full extent to which the Mule
busy bee may improve each shining
hour was not realized until Ihe dis
covery tbat the sting of the irritable
lilrle hymenopter was a sure, cure for
rheumatism. Of course, it has always been known that this method
would afford temporary relief. The
victim of the most violent case of
sciatic or inflammatory rheumatism,
attacked by a determined swarm of
atrabilious bees, immediately forgot
all his minor afflictions. The lame
and lite halt have been known to
lay aside tbeir crutches and flee as
the wild gazelle.
The specific curative value of tbe
bee's poison must have heen discovered by one of tbose happy accidents
which have enriched the science of
medicine. Sinoe it is the female of
the species which alone carries a
sting, perhaps the leaders in tbe
feminist movement were convinced
that the burning dart was intended
as • blessing and not as a scourge.
It was years before we knew the

Is very Bad. We thought football

Are Usually the Victims of Pale,
Watery Blood
Anaemia is the medical term for
poor or watery blood. It may arise
from a variety of causes, such as
lack of exercise, hard Btudy, Improperly ventilated rooms or workshops,
imperfect assimilation of food, etc.
The chief symptoms are extreme pallor of Ihe face, lips and gums; rapid
breathing and palpitation of the heart
after slight, exertion; headaches, dizziness, sometimes fainting spells and a
tendency to hysterics, swelling of the
feet and. limbs, a feeling of constant
tiredness and a distaste for food. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills are a certain
cure for anaemia, because they make
new, rich blood.-which stimulates and
strengthens every organ and every
part of the body. The following is
one among thousands of cases of this
serious trouble cured by the use of
Or. Williams Pink Pills. Miss Georg-
ina Itayfond, St. Jerome, Que., Bays:
"Abont a year ago my health began
to give out: I suffered from headaches, heart palpitation, dizziness and
appeared to he threatened .with a
general breakdown. I was at tbls
time employed in Ihe family of a doctor, who seeing my condition, gave me
medicine. I took this faithfully for
aome time, bill with no benefit, and I
grew much discouraged. Then a
friend advised me to try Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, saying that she had found
a cure through them In similar conditions. I took her advice, got a sup.
ply of Ihe pills and took them regularly for some time. Gradually I
became strong and In the course of
a month.or so t was, again enjoying
the best of health, and have not since

the Ice from Lake Ladoga Is flouting
down the Neva, the wooden bridge
across the river which abuts on the
Winter Palace. St. Ppterauuig. Is
swung round, In order to enable tue
Ice to pass unimpeded. The operation
was partially accomplished at dawn,
not long since, when the cables connected with the bank snapped tn a
gust of wind. The bridge began to
drift bodily down the Neva, and four
tugs In tbe Immediate vicinity were
unable lo restrain It. Alarm sirens
were sounded and nearly a score more
tugs came to the rescue. They Jnst
succeeded In averting a catastrophe.
The structure, with Ita living freight

was got under control.

an allowance of $37,600 a year."
The Maypole clapped her hands delightedly. The next instant, though,
her face fell.
"That is all riglit, but where is the
money coming from?" she ir.quried
"Out of the British Treasury," ths
King made answer.
And as he said, bo it was. Her
pension was paid her regularly until
her death, thirty years later. So that
single ill-timed jest of an unknown
wag cost the taxpayers of England no
less a sum than a million and a quarter dollars.
Money alone, however, Was nol
enough to satisfy the Maypole's
greed. A week or two later she came
to the King with a fresh tale of trouble.
. Her complaint this time was
against lhe Countess of Suffolk, who
had alluded to her, in her hearing, as
"that mawkin."
: "Never mind," replied the King
soothingly, "she is only a countess, I
will make you a duchess."
> A day or two later her patent of
nobility was sealed, signed,.and d*>
livered, and she became entitled to
call herself Baroness of Duudalk,
Countess and Maehion<fss of Dungan-
tion, and Duchess of Munster in the
peerage of Ireland, and Baroness of
Glastonbury, Countess of Feversham,
and DuchesB of Kendal in the peerage
of England. She chose to be known
by the latter title.
i But the more the King favored her,
tlie mors the people hated her. A
common method of showing their contempt wss to purposely block the road
hi front of her carriage whenever she
ventured to drive out through the
London streets.
. Once a brewer'a drayman drew his
dray right across the Strand when he
aaw her coming. The -newly-created
duchess leaned out of the window and
asked him angrily what he meant by
behaving thus towards a lady of
, "Lady — of quality!" sneered the
"Certainly!" replied the duchess.
"Can't you see my arms on lbe carriage door?" 0
; "Yes," was the crushing retort "I
can, and a very coarse, dirty pair of
arms they are."
- All London laughed when they
beard ul this incident, tlie more so
because the Maypole was not remarkable for her personal cleanliness. Indeed, it was of her that the story was
originally told anent tho womau who
aaw un goud in washing her lisnds,
"because they would be just as dirty
again to-morrow."
But, if the Knglish people haU>d
and ridiculed the Maypole, the Maypole took her revenge in robbing tha
English people. Never wss any royal
mistress so rapacious as this gaunt
giantess.   True, corruption was ram-
Jiant at the time. King (lenrit-'s other
avorites—Ann Brett, the Countess of
Darlington, and the rest of the precious gang—stole with both hands, but
their pilfering* were aa nothing l,y

of Kendal.
