Boulders on Track Wreck a
C. P. R. Freight Train
Near Fisherman
The Other Trainmen Escape
Unharmed—Train Was
Running Slow
A Berious freight wreck, in which
one man lost his life, occurred on
tbe Canadian Pacific railway early
Wednesday morning at Fisherman,
seven miles west of this city.
Tbe east bound freight, in charge
ol Conductor Innes, when near
Fisherman, ran into a couple ol
large boulders whicb bad been
washed on tbe track by the freshets
uow prevailing. Owing to tbe sharp
curvature of the track it' was im
possible for tbe engineer and fireman
to see tbe obstruction until it was
too late to stop tbe train. The train
was running at a low rate speed, and
when the boulders were struck only
the engine was derailed, and it toppled over into the ditch. Had the
train been running at (ull speed,
tbere would have beeu a bad mix-
up aod probably greater loss of life.
As the engine struck the obstruction the fireman, Michael Moore.of
Eholt, jumped from the cab. Afte
alighting on tbe ground he was
pinned between a boulder and tbt
engine and cnt almost in two. It if
supposed tbat death was instautane-
ous. Head Brakeman Keefe also
jumped, but he escaped with a
bruised leg. Engineer Alex Bel
leek remain in the cab, and was unhurt.
A wrecking crew worked all day
Wednesday getting the engine back
on the rails and repairing tbe track.
The east-bound passenger train was
delayed for a few hours on account
of having lo transfer passengeis at
the wreck.
Yesterday Coroner Kingston empanelled a. jury for tbe purpose ol
- holding sn inquest over the remains
of the dead Amman. After listening to the evidence of Engineer Bei-
leck and the other trainmen, a verdict of purely .accident death was
rendered. The members of the
jury were G. M. Fripp, A. Mann,
H. K. Woodland, J. D. Honsberger,

together with a supporting company
of more than ordinary ability, gave
a delightful rendering of the exciting

There was not a great deal of
business transacted at Ihe council
meeting Monday night. A number
of communications were received
innl read. The only one of any importance was from the minister of
public worka in reference to the
council's petition for the rebuilding
of the Cooper bridge by the government. The matter, be said, had
been referred to Road Supervisor
Spraggett, who bad been instructed
to furnish the publio works department with a report regarding the
work. The city clerk made a request for an assessor,' but action on
the matter was postponed until the
next meeting. The question of a

length. The only decision arrived
at was the council's instructions to

Provincial Elections
It is understood among those who
have ears close to the ground tbat
the provincial elections are to be precipitated during the month of
March, and the whispered word bas
gone forth to the faithful to prepare
for the event in every constituency,
says the Victoria Times. Thus, the
alarm is sounded and the advice is
given "not to underrate tbe strengfh
of the opposition." The interpretation of these words means really that
the faithful are not to overrate the
strength of the government or underestimate its weakness. For it is in
the weakness of the government and
the growing discontent among the
more self-respecting members of Mi*.
McBride's following that the opposition has much strength. The
breaking down of the machine by
tbe disintegration of its recalcitrant
parts is the surest premonition of
the downfall of Bowserism and Two-
Man government in the province.

Two robberies, apparently the
work of the same parties, were committed in this city at an early hour
Thursday morning. The houses
burglarized were the Province and
Yale hotels.
It is supposed tbat the Province
hotel was tbe first placed visited by
the robbers. Here tbey effected an
entrance into a back room by climbing up the fire escape and breaking a window. Before breaking the
widow they had endeavored to remove the pane of glass by eutting
away the putty. After entering tbe
room the robbers found that the
door leading to the bar-room was fastened on the otber side>ith a hasp,
and after Btraining at it until tbey
nearly pulled the lock off, tbey were
forced to abandon their attempt to
gain ingress to the bar-room by this
route.. They then, went to a side
window, and after breaking an upper pane of glass with a bottle.it was
an easy task to insert a hand and
undo the window lock and push up
tbe window. This gave tbem entrance to tbe billiard and bar rooms.
The burglars made a thorough
search of the bar-room for cash, but
were unable to find any, although
they had opened a "drawer where
two money bags bad been deposited.
After helping themselves to a few
cigars and some liquor, they left
tbe house.
From the Province it is supposed
Ihey crossed the street and went
over to the Yale. Here they gaioed
entrance through the outside cellar
door and up the trapdoor in the
bar-room. The outside door is usually barred on the inside at night,
but on this occasion the porter had
'ailed to perform ihis work. They
were in belter at this house, as tbey
found $81 in cash in the cash register. Tbis tbey tuok and made
good their escape. They left the
trap-door open, end "'hen the porler
came to work in the morning be fell
down the cellar, a fitting retribution
for bis neligence in not barring lhe
door.
The robbery at the Yale waB not
discovered until the day bartender
came on duty. He found the cash
register drawer open, and immediately suspected tbat something was
wrong and notified lhe Mr. Traunweiser, tbe proprietor.
The robberies showed every evidence of having been committed by
amateur criminals. Two men who
been loafing about the town for a
couple of weeks, and who decamped
on the night of the burglary, are
suspected ot being guilty of tbe
crime.

In the city of Charleston during tbe
middle of the last century a young girl
sat ln a window opening on to a garden.  Bbe was not one of tbe delicate,
willowy creatures of whom poets love
to sing, bnt a magnificently formed, tsll
woman wltb a remarkably handsome
fact. Though the year was -nearly
tpent, the leaves on the trees had not
yet all fallen, and a balmy breeee came
ep trom tbe south. The gardeu'into
which Margaret Lemolno looked belonged to an adjoining bonse, and two
gentlemen were smoking'ob a rustic
bench almost directly beneath the window she occupied. - They were botb
young men of the world and were chatting about social matters. Charles Thlbadeaux was speaking.
"Tbe northern city I most fancy In
America," he said, "Is New tork. At
least It Is to me- less objectionable, puritanically considered, than otber northern cities. But my delight Is our own
■ beloved New Orleans. In the Crescent
City tho meu arc brave to recklessness
and tbe women are beautiful. I spent
last winter there."
"Wbo was tbe most beautiful woman
In New Orleans society last winter?"
asked the speaker's companion, Ed
ward Remington.
"The most beautiful woman, to my
thinking, waa a widow—a Mrs. Le-
molne. Though nearly forty, sbe retained her youthful a ppearance. She was a
queenly beauty, tall, splendidly formed
and wltb a face devoid of a-single
wrinkle. But 1 am sorry to say tbere
were unpleasant things aaid about ber.
Come past Indiscretion hod cast a
blemish upon her 'good name."
Margaret Lemolno paid no attention
to wbat the young men were saying
till she heard ber mother's name
spoken; tben naturally she pricked
ap her ears. When sbe beard the aspersion cast upon ber mother's good
name the blood rushed to ber cheeks
and her eyes lit with a sudden lire.
Bhe leaned forward to bnrl back tbe
accusation, bot words failed her. Tbe
young men, unconscious of wbat was
above them, smoked on. Miss Lemolno
withdrew from the window and began
to pace the floor.
"It ie time" she sard, "tbat tbls
woman's slanderers received a check
But how? Oh, tbat she were a mau and
I were a man I Women are defenseless
•gainst each otber. Men can at least
die In defense of tbelr good name. If
Tom had lived be could bave mnde tbls
man who has trcsted mother's good
name so lightly eat his words. Whj
.was I not born masculine?"
Yielding to an impulse, she seated
herself before a writing desk and
dashed off tbe following!
I have overheard your aspersions on the
■ood name of one I lore end respect. I
demand whatever of satisfaction you may
ke able to afford me. Since I prefer tu
remain Incoanlto I ahall conduct my own
side of this affair. If yeu are not a co'v-

this communication was tnconsloer-
alely written, Margaret went to the
window and tossed lt at the feet ol

a glance upward and with no slgbt of

The two looked at each other wltb
a serious expression.
"Ned," said Thibadeanx presently.
"I don't like the situation."
"Nor I. In listening to your remarks I am as culpable as you wbo
■have made tbem."
"Ton have nothing to do with tbe
sutler. The responsibility rests on

After a conference it was decided
that Thlbadeaux should write a note

door of'tbe bouse from which the note
had been thrown. It said that the
writer acknowledged himself to be

therefor. If after' tbls apology Mr.
Renard still Insisted on 'a meeting his
demand could not be denied. A reply
would be looked for the next after.
noon, sent In the same way as the
first message.
- Naturally Thlbadeaux was desirous
of knowing something of the mysterious challenger. Early ln tbe afternoon appointed for the reply he took
position behind the blinds of a win-
alow commanding a view of the house
from whence lt should come, in time
tie saw a shctter open Jnst far enough
for a hand to pass through and toss a
note on to tbe bench on which be bad
tat the day before. Tbe distance was
100 great for htm to discover that the
laud was delicately formed, bnt he
mw something tbat astonished blm.
I'he sunlight striking lt wse sent back
n a bright flash. Evidently Mr. He-
nard wore a Jcwtled ring.
Men seldom wear rings unless tbey
aire seals, wblcb are not likely to spar-
tie. Therefore Charles , Thlbadeaux
was not long ln divining tbat Ms
correspondent was a woman. All
thoughts of a bloody encounter van-'
isbed, and ln tbelr place came a desire to know more of bis fair challenger. He sauntered into the garden.
Picked up tbe note and, returning to
Us room, read it:
Only on* cteroi* ot a sense of honor will
apeak lightly ot a woman's (ood name. I
am determined to show those engaged In
spraading this calumny that It cannot be
done with Impunity. I therefore Insist on
satisfaction.
Thlbadeaux after much thought
threw tbe note down, saying to himself:
"Tbe satisfaction I will give you,
lear lady, If I find you as attractive
is my imagination paints you, Is another ring to be worn on tbe third
finger of your left band."'
Tbe young man mused on, considering every possible method of procedure. At first he was Inclined to
meet his challenger on the field and
there make lt known that he .knew
her sex. Bnt be feared tbat she
might be further Irritated. Before the
dey was done he bsd decided on his
course.  Be wrote her ss follows:
It Is not by receiving your Are, my dear
•Ir, that I can atone for my fault, but by
hunting down the perpetrator of this scandal. I received it from a woman and am
confident tt originated tn a woman. It
within time months I do not bring you a
retraction from Its originator I will not
deny you the satisfaction yoai demand. I
shall look for your reply at the aame hour
tomorrow. ' <
The next afternoon Thibadeanx
watched Miss Lemolne's window
through a pair of glasses ond saw the
hand much' more clearly than before.
This rime the note wae thrown by the
left bond.
"Not married and not engaged," the
watcher remarked to himself wltb'
satisfaction. "I'm pleased to notice
that tbe third linger Is unoccupied."
The note bad evidently been written
in an exuberance of delight and was
consequently a dead give away.
Tour proposition Is accepted. Tou have
shown yourself to be a noble man. If I
were a woman I'm sure I should fall In
love with you.
"Thank yon," remarked Thlbadeaux.
"That's exactly what I wlsb you to
do."
After -writing one more note, stating
that he was leaving for New Orleans
and hoped within the specified lima
to bring tbe vindication, he msde
resdy for his departure.
- Bnt two of tbe three months had
elapsed when Miss Lemolne received
tbe following note from the msn who
was to qussb tbo slander or Dgbt:
I hand you herewith sn acknowledgment from Mlsa Lemotne'a Inducer that
there- was ao truth In the story she circulated. I am sorry, however, to admit,
my dear air, that your good opinion of

my departure was misplaced. I acoulred
this retraction by dishonorable means. I
made love to the woman who wrote It.

In thia case and agreed to forgive her
only upon ht - written confession. I am
yours unworthily,
CHARLES F. THIBADEAUX.
Having dispatched this self accusing
epistle, the writer waited Impatiently
(or a reply.  It was this:
t assure you, sir. that by your conduot
you bave not only relieved me and the
subject of the confession of a burden, but
you have shown yourself, notwithstanding
your own opinion of your act, too honorable, too lovely, for anything: Tour deception was perfectly excusable. I shall
always respect and admire .you for lt. It
Is needless for me to add tbat my challenge Is withdrawn.
Thlbadeaux chuckled over this letter
with its manlike beginning and Its
feminine ending. He was anxious to
get a glimpse of tbls lndy wbo bad sent
blm a challenge to mortal combat and
thus declared that she respected and
admired blm for an act upon wblcb bis
sensitive conscience was not quite
clear. 80 be wrote another note, begging that he mlgbt meet Mr. Renard
nnd apologize ln person for tbe wrong
be had done tn reporting a slander.
Thlbadeaux hsd resided In Charleston bat a few days before receiving
tbe challenge, and after sending It Miss
had kept herself very dark.
Then he bsd left Charleston, and upon
bis return bis enemy bod gone again
into biding. Consequently be was still
In Ignorance us to whether she were
an aged spinster or n - young girl,
whether comely or homely. Therefore
he was much relieved and pleased at
receiving a note that Mr. Itenard would
"be bapipy to receive a cull from Mr.
Thlbadeaux on the next afternoon at C
o'clock." They Could drink a cup of tea
together, Mil Mr. Renard could express
his sense of obligation to Mr.. Thlbadeaux for tbe vindication be had procured. .       -
Silicas Mr. Thlbadeaux never drank
anything weaker than wine, the offer
of tea was not as alluring as the anticipated ilsloh of tho womnn who had
brought about the approaching ac-
qualiita'jeo by proposing 10 kill him.
On ths appointed afternoon he onlled
on Mr. Renard and sent ln his card.
He nad prepared himself to feign
surprise on seeing 11 woman Instead of
a man, bnt wben tbe queenly Margaret came into tho room there was no
need of pretense. The splendor of ber
presence-quite took his breath away.
"I did not dream yon wonld be so
beautiful," he exclaimed.
"Wbat!'' she replied, starting. "Did
you know me to be a woman?"
"Not till I saw a ring sparkle on the
hand tbat dropped the challenge. For
heaven's sake, wbat did you mean by
taking sucb a course?"
"I meant to fight you disguised ss a

"If you had. made no better pretense

filLA MONSTERS
Their Bite la Sometimes Fatal and Always Dangerous
In a recent issue of tbe Scientific
American an article appeared written
by D. Allen Wiley,, describing the Gila
monster. The statement was made in
tke artlclo that scientists questioned
whether its bite was fatally poisonous,
aa has been supposed. W. C. Barnes,
of Las Vegas, N.M., claims to know
of two cases, in one of which death
resulted. Mr. Barnes writes as follows:
"Tbe 'first man was In Tombstone,
Arts. Tbe Gila was tied by the leg In
a saloon as a curio, and a drunken
twmbler named brown was teislng it.
He carelessly stuck his first two fingers Into Its mouth, which Immediately
closed down on them and could not
be released, until the reptile's bead
was cut off. Brown suffered horrible
agony for at most two days and In
spite of all efforts he died.
The second case was In the fall of
188!". Walter Vail sttCrted from the
Empire Ranch near Benson, Ariz., to
ride Into town on horseback, some fifteen miles. A short way from the
ranch a monster was sluggishly dragging its way across the road. Thinking to lake It into a friend, he got
down and killed it, to- at least he
thought he killed It. To carry.lt easy,
lie tied lt on hts saddle behind him,
using his saddle string for the-purpose. As he looped along, be thought
to assure himself that It hadn't dropped oft by reaching around behind
him with Tits right hand and then feeling for the monster.
"It was there, not nearly ns dead
as what he thought. His first finger
went Into the reptile's mouth clean
tb the knuckle, and Instantly, those
laws, with the long, sharp, dagger-like
teeth closed or Veil's finger. With
his left hand he managed to get his
knife out and cnt the saddle strings
and then dissected the head aud laws
to get hla finger from their grip.
'Tall then spurred his horse Into
Benson and found an engine In the
yards. A hasty exchange of' telegrams with the division superintendent at TucBon took pi pace and in a
tew minutes he was on the engine and
racing over the nad to Tucson where
an eminent surgeon resided at that
time. Vail lay at death's door for
two months, and that finger today le
useless from ths effect ot the bite."

When the McBride machine is
finally ousted from power it will
doubtless be found that the most
regrettable legacy whicb it has be
queathed to posterity will be the n-
fluence it haB hnd in forming the political code of honor of the rising
generation, tho youtbo who are just
arriving at voting age, and who in a
few yenrs will rule the country.'
These young men have already taken
a low view politics. They nre so anxious to b.e with the majority, that
they vote for candidates whom tbey
think will be victorious without investigating the principles involved.
They look upon defeat as a disgrace,
and palliate corruption, when practiced by the victors, by saying tbat
all parties are corrupt. This is a
vicious view to take of public life,
even when expressed by old campaigners, and the McBride machine
bas done much to foster it by its
patronage system. Tbe idea cannot
be too strongly impressed upon the
youthful mind tbat a political principle should be placed above mercenary considerations.
Thk first number of the Vancouver Morning Suh waa issued last
Monday. It consisted of twenty-
four peg's, containing telegraphic
and local news, editorial and cartoon, market reports and sporting
talk, correspondence and ndveitis-
ing, and all tbe- other ingredients
required to make a first-class metropolitan daily. A cursory glance
through its pages gave one tbe im-
pnession that it was a real newspaper, snd a closer perusal of tbe
reading matter confirmed ihis impression.       	
It is about time for tbe police
commissioners of Grand Forks lo do
something. Two robberies in one
night is imitating Vancouver in the
wrong direction.

Eighteen Pupils Have Spent
the Week Mastering a
Useful Trade
The apple packing school, which
opened in tbe Miners' Union hall
under the auspices of tbe Orand
Forks Farmers' institute last Monday morning, will close at noon tomorrow. Eighteen pupils are taking
a course of lessons in scientific fruit
packing, and under the able instruction of J, Lawler, of the Okanagan
Fruit Growers' union, they have attained a high degree of proficiency.
The knowledge they have acquired
ebould prove a valuable aid in improving the commercial pack of the
fruit shipped out of tbe valley next
fall.
Both day and evening sessions of
the school have been held, and a
large number of citiwns and fruit
growers have been interested spec
tators. ..■- :■: .-'-,

Laurier's Naval Law
The insistent demands of Premier
Borden's Nationaljst supporters in
the commons for the fulfillment of
their pre-election pledges that the
late government's naval law would.]
be promptly repealed if the Liberals
were turned out of power are not
likely to be granted this year. The
new government has found, after informal consultation with the admiralty, tbat the "hasty and ill-conceived legislation" of the Laurier
government is a well-considered part
of a general imperial plan, and that

Australia, Mew Zealand and the imperial government are all parties,

two at least.
The wise course, as soon as you feel
the cold coming on, is to start taking
Na-Dru-Co Syrup of Linseed, Licorice
snd Chlorodync, and keep it up till the
cold is knocked out completely. This
splendid cough syrup will do the trick
quickly ami thoroughly.

Oil on the Waters
It has long been known that oil
poured upon the surface ot stormy
water has a wonderful effect in calming It, and many vessels' have probably been saved from destruction from
this simple means.
The reason of this curious effect ot
oil upon the water Is superficially apparent. H depends upon the viscosity,
or adhesiveness, of the oil, which
causes lt to aot somewhat like a akin
drawn over the more unstable surface
of the water,,so that the tendency of
the latter to break into spray as lt is
driven by the wind Is restrained. The
danger to ships from a high running
sea arises from this breaking of the
waves; As long as the surface of tlie
waves Is smooth and unbroken, the
ship rides easily upon them. .   .   .
But while the principle upon which
the oil acts Is thus evident enough,
tbe real method If Its action Is not so
apparent. This has been subjected
to a" mathematical Investigation by a
Hritish scientist.
It Is shown that the viscosity of oil
is so much greater than that of water,
being In the (.use of olive-oil moro
than two hundred and thirty times as
great, that the water may be regarded
»i a Motionless liquid in comparison
vvTtli- the oil. The surface tehslon between the oil and the air is also Bhown
to be' considerably greater than tbat
between the oil and the water. With
these data lt Is found tbat there will
be no breaking of the mgtet unless
the latter vary ln lengUKMMBen two

mariners show-that tnorc'is'a considerable difference Iii tho effect produced upon the waves, depending upon the sort of oil that Is. used. Petroleum, and various kinds of fisli-olla
have been employed. The effect Is
always found to bo boneficial. though

The child looked up into his parent's face with childish .innocence.

PICTURE to yourself an editor
seated in bis sanctum on the
fourth floor of bis office. For
the moment be is not writing
an article advising tbat tye long suffering peoplo turn out ilnd make a Don-
Ire of every cold storage house ln the
country.   •         : . .
On the contrary, he Is looking out Of

they look down upon his private editorial graveyard—the only one ot Its
kind ln tbe world. Twenty-three men
he sleeping tbcre-a sleep tbat shall
hut until the trumpet awakens all.
Twenty-three headstones give the
names to the world. Over the green
graves the trailing arbutus trails.
These mounds are as carefully tended
as If tbey covered tha remains of children. 	
The editor brushes the tears from hts
eyes, sighs a long sigh and proceeds
to read the names on tbe stones.
There Is Tarantula Sam to begin with
and .Grizzly Joe to end the line. Sandwiched in between are Rocky Pete,
Awful Tom, Blood Red Larry, Bowie
Knife Dick, Tornado Jim, Whirlwind
Smith, Cut 'Em to Pieces Hank, Ter
rlble Jones, Whooping Charlie and others. Each one had lived and bad bis
lay.' Each one bad whooped and
bluffed and fallen. .Some bad left old;
' mothers to weep as they nsked themselves, "Where 1* ">y boy tonlghtr
while others never knew a mother's
tori. 	
Each and every due of tba twenty-
three had arrived at Glveadam Ouleh
to bounding spirits; also with two guns
buckled sronnd him tud his eom
brero on the baek of'his head. Each
had arrived with • whoop. Eaeh

ton to fifteen notches cot into the butt
ef bis favorite shooter. They sighed
for tbe reputation of being bad, aud
they got It
In some cases they fell within a day;
to others tbey listed n week. It was
according to how coon they met the
editor of the Richer and started In to
do him up. That seemed to be their
mission. Tbe editor bad never harmed them by word or deed, and yet tbey
sighed to make btm eat dirt. They'
didn't want him .to live out bis days.
They didn't want him on earth. Tbey
were willing to spare 'others, but not
an editor. So tfiey sought him out
Some gave blm two minutes In whleb
to prepare for the change; some opened Are at once, having no care whether
he went to the one place or the other.
And the editor, desiring to live on
and make the Arizona Kicker tho
greatest weekly ln the land snd to be
mayor, postmaster, game warden, colo-

and numerous other things, bought a

Grizzly Joe opened on thc editor
when stilt live rods separated them.
The look of astonishment on his face
us be went dnwn to rise no mora wis
burled with blm.' It wos the first time
bc bad ever failed,to drop nn editor
with his lirst bullet. It was wben he
bad fallen that the purchase of lbe
ground for an editorial graveyard was
made; otherwise the coyotes' would
bave bowled oyer lils grnve on the
bleak desert. It was a beginning. The
editor didn't like It, but tbe bsd men
continued to come, and be had to welcome tbem. Aseseh one fell ha wai
given a funeral, a grave ind a' headstone, and ths editor footed the bill.
The number flnslly reached Ave, tben
ten, tben'fifteen! The editor prayed
that the bad men would keep away,
but tbey continued to arrive. They felt
that there was something really funny
about It Tbe fifteen became eighteen,
twenty; then a rest, and then three Is
succession. With the twenty-third the
editor believed that the last bad man
In the country had gone to bis reward,
and bo drew a long- brctitb of relief and
bung bis trusty guns' on the wall and
felt the blessed *"""• net nesce.
Abd so he sits ami looks out on his
private graveyard and sorrows .that
such a thing bad to be and rejoices
that bis gray hairs will no more feel
the whls of hostile bullets, and he
makes plans that men of all nations
shall be brothers to' each otber. His
heart Is overflowing wltb tbe milk ot
human kindness as be thinks, and be is
about to add n million dollars to Rockefeller's bookworm donation when—
"Say your prayers!"
It waa Pike's Feak Pete who stood
In tbe door.with a gun fat either band.
He bsd ridden 000 miles to Ull ths

Tbere was not n line of. pity ln bis

heart.

The editor turned and looked at him,
but preserved silence. It could not be
seen tbit he ereri winked, and It was
afterward found that hts Waterbury

before, lt was a dramatic situation.

BRADDOCK'S R06K.
Washington's Historic Landmark te Be
Protected Prom Vandals.
Braddock's rock, one of the historic
landmarks of Washington, Is to be
preserved and protected against the
vandal souvenir hunter, toys 'tbe Baltimore American. Many years ago
tbe Society of Colonial Dames placed
t descriptive tablet on the stone and
Inclosed the area with a low iron
fence, but visitors and local vandals
defaced the tablet, carried off parts of
the stone and finally began taking
away portions of the fence until thero
was danger ot the ultimate disappearance of the rock.
Braddock's rotk is located on tbe
banks of tbe Potomac river, nearly
midway between Twenty-fourth and
Twenty-fifth streets. It. Is south of
the Naval Medical School hospital, on
the line of Upper Water street, Just
north of B street Originally lt stood
high.above the level of tbe ground,
but now It lies ln a hole In tbe ground
about six feet below the level of the
surrounding territory ln a mass of
weeds. The sock gets Its name from
the fact that it marks the landing
place of the British and colonial troops
under General Braddock on tbelr'111
toted march in 17S5 from Alexandria
through the District of Columbia,
Maryland and Pennsylvania to Fort
Duquesne (now Pittsburg), where the
British were annihilated by tbe French
troops and their Indian allies. General George Washington, then a colonel of the Virginia troops, accompanied General Braddock, and It was
because the British veteran contemptuously disregarded the advice of the
young colonial officer that the expedition ended ln complete disaster..
LIVING AMONG LEPERS.
Werk ef Brother Dutten, 8usessser ef
Father Dsmisn,
In "Brother Dutton of Moloksi," ln
the American Magazine, is told the
story of tbe man wbo succeeded
Father Damlen In charge of tbe leper
settlement at the Hawaiian Island of
Moloksi. Unlike Father Damlen. be Is
not a Belgian: "Brother Button Is an
American, coming, indeed, of an old
New England family." Up to fort;
years of age he lived as tens of thou-
ssnds of otber Americans. Then a sudden "revolt of soul" drove-hlm Into a
Catholic monastery in Kentucky, lt
was there tbat be beard of Father
Damlen nnd went to join him. Mr.
Baker writes:
"At Honolulu he transshipped to Mo-
lokal, landing at tbe leper settlement
Just at sunset on July 29, 1880, aud
there be bas been ever since. He assisted Father Damlen until bis death,
helping blm build bis church and
school and, after Damlen fell ill with
leprosy, taking full charge of tbe work.
Although be bas beeu surrounded for
twenty-five years with lepers In every
stage ot tho disease, and although be
bas cared for tbem often In the most
intimate way, be has not contracted
tbe disease. A hearty, wholesome, sensible man witb a fine gift of human
companionship, he has made life pleas-
inter for hundreds of these floor prisoners of disease."
Propping Up a Cathedral.
For six yenrs n diver has been engaged In an unparalleled task beneath the
walls of Winchester cathedral. England, laying new fouudatllns lo replace the original work performed In
tbe thirteenth century. The old foundations had begun to give way, allowing tbe walls to crack and lean out.
Pumping was out of the question, as
it would have weakened the entire

OUR STOCK OF GOLD.
Unele Um'New Has s Heard Un-
equaled In the World's History.
We now bave ln our national treasury the greatest gold hoard In tbe
world. Tbe National City bank of
New Tork In a recent circular calls
attention to this and tbe fact that "in
the midst of alarms and anxieties
which now trouble the business world
lt is at least a comfort to know tbat
we- are free from a peril which pot
many years ago was paralyzing enterprise and Surrounding alt business operations wltb uncertainty. That was
the threat of a suspension ot gold payment No general attention Is paid
now to the stock of gold, Including
reserve ln the treasury, and it goes on
piling np (ind making a new- world's
record from month to month. It uow
stands at .about $1,200,000,000, which
Is a hoard not only unequaled, but un-
approached, In thc world's history.
"Low water mark was touched on
Feb. 12, 1885, wben tbe total amount
of gold in the treasury was $98,018,-
710, and of tbls $32,r>78,520 was pledged to tho redemption of an equal
amonnt of gold certificates, leaving
but $41,340,181 in tbe $100,000,000 fund
established for the redemption of
United States notes. This fund was
replenished several times by bond
sales, bnt since 1886 lt hss not been
encroached upon. From that time the
stock of gold ln the treasury bas
moved steadily upward.
"The next greatest board ln tho
world is that ot the Imperial Bank ot
Bussla. which holds the treasury funds
of that country, nbout $640,000,009.
The Bonk ot France holds about $630.-
000,000. At tbe rate our treasury lt
gaining gold It will soon hold the
stock equal to the totul of the next
two greatest hoards ln the world.
The Bank of England gold stock Is
only about $200,000,000 and that of tbe
Bank of Germany but little larger,"
A NOVELTY IN LAVA.
Menstsr Bubble, Bearing aft Island, In
a Fiery Lake.
Mall advices from Honolulu tell of
the most amazing phenomenon ever
observed within tbe crater of a volcano by a wblta man.
It was no less tbsn a tremendous
bubble of lava, inflated by gas from
tbe very center of tbe earth, which
supported on island as It floated across
a lake ot fiery liquid. Frank A. Perret-
the scientist wbo observed It, estimated that lt covered an area ot 3,000
square feet, and bo was fortunate
enough to secure n few photographs.
althougb conditions were fsr from favorable for picture taking.
"The bubble was a huge saussgo
shaped affair, inflated wltb volcanic
gas aid composed of lava glass," says
the scientist ln bis report. "A lava
fountain, boiling continuously under
tbe eastern end. gave tbe appearance
of a screw propeller, and the amazing
contrivance seemed to be navigating
the lake like n great wbslebsck
stesmer.
"There was nn Island of black crust,
wbich when It began to sink evolved
a great quantity of gas, which blew
the bubble of lava glass, and this ln
turn sustained tbe Island and prevented It from sinking. It made several
tours of tbe luke before It disappeared
from sight at last."

Enormous Land Deal
The largest land deal in Canadian
history, it ie believed, is one just
closed in Toronto by the Canadian
Northern, which sold, immense holdings of land in British Columbia and
seventy townsites in the prairie prov-
incee, the consideration being jSTi.oOO,-
000. The purchaser is John F. Hansen, of Winnipeg, who represents a
number of British linancial houses,
including the British and Overteas
Investment company.
Mr. Hansen is to have what is de
scribed as a "fair selection" of laud
in the area acquired recently by the
Canadian Northern in .Quebec, a
quauity of inside aud waterfront property within the new Port Mann terminal city on the Paciflo coast and
similar privileges of choice in a large
number of points in Alberta and Sas
katchewan, including most of ths railway divisional townsites and practically every other good city location in
these provinces. Two proposed town-
sites in British Columbia, about mid
way between Edmonton and Vancouver, whicli have not yet been
plotted or even named, are also included in the deed.
Mr. Hansen bought a large area of
farm lands from the Canadian North
ern last year, paying a cash price of
f ii, 000,000. These lands he has siuce
been colonizing with American farmers for the North Saskatchewan Land
company, of Winnipeg, of which he is
general manager.
The sale wus concluded by Colonel
A. D. Davidson, land commissioner
for the Canadian Northern railway,
and Mr. Hansen, after about a yeai
