flush Glaspell Receives Appointment to Succeed
B.B. Allen
was the hest exhibition of ball playing seen here for some time. At tlie
end of lhe seventh inning the score
was I to 0 in favor of the home

Matrimonially speaking, business
has heen quite active in Grand
Korks during the present week,
no less than three couples having
been united in wedlock by one minister alone. Had the other four
divines done as well, the record for
the week would have been fifteen
couples. But even taking three
marriages [ier weekjas a fa r average,
it wilt be seen that the city is adding l:")(i families yeaily to its popula
.tion from this source alone. Thf
natural results of marriage nre also
supposed to potsess unlimited possibilities of increasing the population.

Watch Ahoy!
Last fall William Carter had the
misfortune to lose his silver timepiece. At that time he had strong
suepieions that aome one had filched
it out of pocket. This morning these
suspicions were proved to be groundless, as be found the chronometer
lying under a tree, where he had
evidently placed it laot summer to
watch the fruit, and vthe incident
had slipped bis mind. On finding
the timepieie, he wound it up, and
it is now keeping as good time as it
did before its long sleep. The watch
originally came from Morrison's.

centering about this fact was the
exceptional opportunity which was
given for exploration and surveys at
the Kettle falls. Giant ledges which
have heretofore Mien submerged
with the water tumbling over tbem

fifteen to twenty feet were exposed.
The entire flow of the river was con

Many new and wonderful formations and curious bored kettles, from
which the falls derived tbeir name,
were discovered. Tbese chimneys,
ur kettles, have been bored by tin
action of the water in whiiling largi
aletached boulders into some erevas
ses dr other possible lodgment, and
grinding them around and around
until all the softer purts were won
away, the result, after centuries ol
wear, being that some kettles un

depth in otherwise perfectly soliu

Superstitious Natives Kill the Creatures Only In Spirit of Revenge
.It Is a common sight in Borneo to
see a large crocodile sunning himself
ou the muddy bank of a river. He
takes no notice of the natives, even
though they pasB quite near him, so
common Indeed Is the eight that the
Dyaks themselves pay no heed to
these dangerous reptiles; and yet It
is no unusual thing ln Borneo to hear
of some human life being taken by
a crocodile.
For months perhaps the crocodiles
In a river live at peace with mankind
and then suddenly one of these creatures will carry oft some lad bathing
In the river or even attack some one
paddling along in his boat. I know
of a Dyak girl who, when sitting
und paddling at the stern of a canoe,
was knocked ove*- Into the water and
carried away by a crocodile and her
companions could do nothing to save
There seems to be no reason why
the crocodll. should suddenly Bliow
a man-eating propensity in this way.
The Dyaks account for it by curious
superstition. They say that if food
Is offered to a person and he refuses It and goes away without at
least touching lt some misfortune
Is sure to befall him and he will most
probably be attacked by a crocodile.
Also it is said that one of the ways
the god3 punish crime Is by sending
a crocodile to attack the culprit; and
I have often heard it said by Dyaks
of some one who has been killed by
a crocodile that probably he has displeased the gods either by paying no
heed to the warnings sent him in
dreams or by means of omen birds
or by committing some hidden crime.
Tbe Dyaks of Borneo will not kill
a crocodile except in revenge. It the
animal will live at peace with him
the Dyak has no wish to start a quarrel; if, however, the crocodile breaks
the truce and kills some one then he
feels justified in retaliating. Under
these circumstances the Dyaks set to
work to find the culprit and go on
catching and killing crocodiles until
they succeed in doing so. The Dyaks
generally wear brass ornaments and
by cutting open a dead crocodile
they can easily find out if he is the
creature they wish to punish.—Chambers' Journal.
Chloroform as a substitute for the
gibbet in the administering of capital
punishment to murderers was recommended to a Chicago newspaper by
John Galsworthy, English author and
dramatist and student ot penology,
who is a Chicago visitor. The English novelist talked of penal laws and
customs In the United States and in
England at length. "Killing a man
by hanging him by the neck is most
certainly barbaric," he asserted. "It
capital punishment is to be meted
out—and I am not sure that our present civilization demands It for a
time longer—why not do lt by the
use of drugs? Chloroform, for Instance, could be used to end the life
of a condemned man as effectively
as breaking his neck."—New York

When Leprosy Was Prevalent
Leprosy, of course, was common in
England during the middle ages. Old
leper hospitals and leper burial pits
existed In many places. Most old
churches have a leper's window in
the chancel, a narrow unglazed opening In the wall through which the
leper might see the elevation of the

Liskeard Board of Guardians reported that he had found that at one
time there was a leper hospital in
the neighboring parish of Bodwin,

now let for St. Lawrence Fair, one
of Cornwall's popular annual festivities, lt now appears that the revenue of the estate of the St. Lawrence Hospital were directed generations ago, by the Court of Chancery,
to be paid to the treasurer for the
time being of the Cornwall Infirmary
at Truro to be primarily applied to
the proper accommodation therein of
leprous persons.
The Income of the St. Lawrence
estate ia still paid to the Truro Infirmary, and the Llskeard Guardians
have sent full particulars to its authorities of Wellington's case asking
them to take charge of It.
Sugar a   leart Stimulant.
Sugar has had Its champions as
well as its opponents. Its advocates
have declared that, aside from Its
nourishing value, lt carries with it a
quick stimulation lhal is without perceptible reaction.
"On the other side," says the Baker's Weekly, "we have had radical
utterances connecting sugar with
tome of the most Incurable of organic
diseases. But an English physician
recently contended that cane sugar
|3 nlmost a specific in the treatment
of certain diseases of the heart.
J.mpliasls Is laid upon cane sugar."
Dr. F. 3. Locke, of King's College,
London, haB kept tbe heart of a mammal beating for elglhy to ninety
hours after death of the animal simply by keeping the heart muscles
sprinkled with powdered canesuger.
These latter experiments with cam1
sugar, especially with reference to di
lotion of the heart muscles, show that
in numerous cases cures have been
effected that are ot three or four
year's standing.
Railway Survey by Camels.
In a very short time J. Norton
Griffiths, M.P., will leave for Australia to confer with the Commonwealth
Government, in connection with the
transcontinental railway.
The survey of the vast stretch of
country between east and west bas
been the cause of not a little anxiety.
Camels had to be used to traverse
the great wastes and at every point
the problem of scarcity of water had
to ba faced and overcome.
The chief surveyor examined the
country in advance and employed a
novel method lo. mark his trail for
those wbo followed. He fastened a
heavy chain to his camel, and this
dragging on the njad, left a plain
trail. When It was possible observations of the stars were taken at
night, and provisions and water were
sent on ubou. seven miles ahead for
the next day's camp.—Pall Mall Gazette.

Canada Sending Many Manufactures
and Buying Much Butter.
imports from Canada into New
Zealand during the year 1911 were
$108,200 ln excess of tliose for 1910,
says Mr. W. A. Beddoe, Canadian
Trade Commissioner, writing from
Auckland on Feb. 16t.h to the Department ot Trade and Commerce. There
mav be some variation in the figures,
hut they will be larger, not smaller,
when all returns are tn. Articles Imported from Canada during the last
quarter—October, November and December, 1911—had a value of $451,-
505, nnd covered 107 Items, of which
42 were entitled to preferential treatment. As to the remainder, agricultural Implements and plain and barbed wire, ot which large quantities
were Imported, enter free.. The preference affects those articles, such as
paper, fish and furniture.
The feature of the season, Mr. Beddoe adds, has been the rapid growth
of the export of butter from New
Zealand to Vancouver. This trade
has exceeded the most Banguine expectations of the merchants, their resources having been taxed to the utmost to meet the great demand from
the Canadian market. Up to this
time last season only 2,958 boxes ot
butter had been sent to Vancouver,
whereas the total for this season
stands at 19,926 boxes.
Recall of Umpire's Decisions.
Here Is a way ot adding to the attractiveness of our national game.
Some offsetting economy of time
could be had In reduction of Innings
to seven. "Striker out," the umpire
declares. "Doubt It," shout the spectators. "How many challenge that
decision?" cries the megaphone man;
a hyndred rise, as the instantaneous,
electrical tabulator reveals. A test
vote is ordered. All ln favor of the
umpire's decision stand. Counted.
Opposed stand Counted. The decision rendered, and the game proceeds.
The umpire would still be a convenience. He could announce the uncontested things. Public sentiment
would protect him ln going somewhat further. Everybody would want
to "play ball." Fanciful or captious
challenges of his decisions would become unpopular. The burden ot
proof would ' eventually find lodgement on the. critics. Perhaps his
position would be more secure than
now. Who knows? Let us try IT!—
Boston Herald.
The Idle man when he has a cold
has it harder than tbe worker. This
was one of the comforting Ideas that
came from a group of well known
doctors who conferred on colds a few
nights ago. One of them said men
who did little or nothing were the
most sensitive to poisonous germs.
Somebody else thought bacteria mattered little, but that being tired was
really the prime factor in catching
cold. Double sets of underclothing
and stockings was another recommendation. Chest protectors were
pronounced excellent—for the people
who sold them; and thlu shoes and
stockings were declared dearest of
all to the heart ot the undertaker.
On the' whole the views of the conference are likely to have little effect
upon that etubbon person, the average man. Almost every grown man
has fixed notions as to how he personally and Individually takes cold,
and no doctor shall ever convince
him against his own experience. For
the rest of the world bis advice Is
usually that the best way of avoiding
a cold is not to catch tt Just as the
Barest way to escape illness Is to

Do Not Use Harsh Purgatives—A
Tonic Is All You Need.
Not exactly sick—but not feeling
quite well. Thatt Is the way most
people feel ln the spring. Easily
tired, appetite fickle, sometimes
headaches, and a feeling of depression. Pimples oi* eruptions may appear on the skin, or there may be
twinges ot rheumatism or neuralgia.
Any of these indicate that the blood
Is out of order—that the Indoor life
of winter has let* its mark upon you
and may easily develop Into more
serious trouble.
Do not dose yourself with purgatives, as so many people do, in the
hope that you can put your blood right
Purgatives gallop through the system
aad weaken Instead of giving
strength. Any doctor will tell you
this Is true. What you need ln
spring is a tonic that will make-new
blood and build up the nerves. Dr.

medicine makes new blood which
clears the skin, strengthens the appetite and makes tired, depressed

which he would not feel Justified in
taking his own sister.
"Is there any young man present
who thinks one may safely disregard
this rule?" asked the speaker.
Whereupon a youth in the rear of

South American Wildcat Skins.
An Importing Arm recently received a shipment of tiger cnt skins from
Paraguay and the Argentine Republic
and placed alongside a lot uf North
American wildcat skins the difference in color ami marking was very
noticeable. Both animals are about
the same size, but the South American cat is covered with round black
spots much like those of the leopard
but smaller In size.
These spots contrast strongly with
the surrounding fur, which Is of a
greyish white color, very different
from the reddish color of the North
American wildcat. The fur of the
South American wildcat is not so
thick as that of his North American
cousin, but the skins are said to
dress well and make good robes and
rugs.—Pur News.

only I was raised on that paper in

"I remember how I used to go
out in front of the house before
breakfast and fetch it in for the
folks, when I was a little Bhaver.
That was my first chore. I recollect
how the newsboy would roll it up
and put a twist in it to keep it tight
and give it a fling over the fence,
along about daybreak; and sometimes you could hear it go bump on
the front door, and then you could
be Bure of finding it all right, if the
dog didn't find it first and chaw the
ends off.
"But sometimes the boy wouldn't
aim so straight and the paper would
light iu the flower bed, or get hung
up in the honeysuckle vine, or
htiried in a snowdrift I recall one
time when 1 looked and looked, and
father nnd mother came out ai d

Granby is now treating 'i larger ton
nage of ore at Grand Forks, over
3500 tons daily, at a lower Cost per
ton than ever hefore. This ore yields
about 18^ pounds of copper and 75
cents in gold and silver per ton. He
says the future outlook for Granhy
is brighter, and tbat its. assets arc
worth more than at nhy previous
time'in the company's history.
I figure that when Granby gets
itself into a position where it can
produce forty-five million pounds
of copper annually at a cost of 10
cents, it will earn 118 a share yearly
on a 16 cent metal market, or S9 on

Granhy directors have authorized
the management to begin, work immediately on the construction of a
20u0-ton daily capacity smelter at
Hidden Creek. Tbe ore baul will
he ahout a mile and tbe distance
from the smelter site to the docks is
a little less. Hydro-electric power
sullieient for all uses at mine and
smelter, will be developed on a
stream near by.
No arrangement for new financing
has been msde. The company bas
money enough to proceed with the
development of the mine, conduct
its railroad and docks and put in
the foundations of the new plant.
Meanwhile it is earning approximately $100,000 a month. It is
probable that the entire plant will

Diamond drilling and development work have proved the Hidden
Creek ore bodies to be larger and
higher in grade than they were believed to be when the property was
purchased. Over twelve million tons
of self fluxing smelting ore, which
will average over 2 per cent copper
and carry 30 cents a ton in gold, has
been demonstrated.s
It is figured tha' the company
will make copper at Hidden Creek

Profits were given as 856,600 at the

British Columbia to tbe refinery, an
advance of over a cent a pound in
the price of the metal, made it necessary to revise the figures as stated.

Hanson, proprietraw of tha Commercial Hotel, says: " I suffered for yeara
vith bleeding piles. Tha pain waa sol
bad at timaa that I could hardly walk,
and ordinary reinediea aeemed utterly
unable to give me any ease. Finally
I decided to undergo an operation,
and went to the Sacred Heart Hospital
in Spokane. There they performed an
operation. For a time I waa certainly
batter, but within twelve montha tha
piles became aa painful aa aver. I
tried linimenta, hot poulticea, various
• pile cures,' and indeed everything I
could think would be likely to do any
good, hut atill I continued to Buffer,
and the (hooting, burning, stinging
pains, the dull, aching, 'worn-out
feeling that the diseaae causes continued aa bad aa over.
" One day I read about Zam-Buk
and thought I would try it. The firat
one or two boxes gave me mora ease
than anything else I had tried, ao I
went on with the treatment. In a
short time I began to feel altogether
different and better. Well, I went on
using Zam-Buk, and by the time I had
used six boiea I was delighted to find
myself entirely cured. That waa three
yeara ago, and there hat been no

Amundaan'a Name.
Although Amundsen haa been a
famoua man ever since be discovered
the Northwest Passage, his name Is
still pronounced wrong aB often as
right. The correct prououncintlon Is
with a strong stress on the flrst syllable, which Is made rather long—
"Ah!-moond-sen." The "oo" is not
quite no close and positive as In
moon, and - the "e" Is somewhat
alighted. The last two syllables, being cluttered up with consonants,
take each about the same time as the
long "ah," so that the rythm is much
like that of "Edmonton," or "excellent" emphatically spoken. It is a
resonant, spirited name, worthy of
a modern viking.—Springfield Republican.

Willing to Accommodate
A justice got a jolt the other day,
and he Ib telling the story of it yet.
He scii that late one afternoon he
gave a case to a jury and that it was
4.30 o'clock the folowmg morning before the jury agreed upon a verdict.
"I waited for the verdict," said the
justice, "aud after it was returned I
told the jurors that as it was possible
most of them were married men, lt
they desired ' would give to each a
certificate that he had been detained
until 4.30 o'clock In the morning on
Jury service.
"The Jurors consulted together for
a few minutes," continued the justice, "and then the foreman arose
and said:—'Wo thank you for your
consideration nnd appreciate the
kindness of your offer and desire to
say that lf yonr Honor needs a certificate to the effect that you were detained until 4.30 o'clock iu the morning waiting for our verdict we will
gladly so certify.'"
The justice hastily declined this
kind offer with thanks, and just as
hastily adjourned court.

In aome factories and workshops carbolic acid Ib kept for use in cauterizing wounds and cuts sustained by the

and does not scar the skin or burn
the flesh. There is no other Oil that
has Its curat! :e qualities.

Cauaed by Cold.
You Can  Prevent 8erious Complications by Using.
When the surface of the body Is
auddenly chilled the millions of pores in the skin are quickly cloned.
Uuder ordinary circumstances these
li.ir 'M are of enormous assistance to
the kidneys III removing poisons from
the system. Their failure means
greatly lucreaaed strain on the kidney*, and frequently congestion,
which leads to serious disease.
This explains why kidney troubles are so frequent at this season
of the year, and why you require
something to quicken the action of
the kidneys and keep them in healthful working condition.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are
particularly effective under these

jWltb a half laugh, shs said: "It I could

'of comfortable living and hs was going
to put a certain worth while bachelor
[et his acquaintance "wise to" Dorothy. That decision of hers sst us all
[conversationally quick stepping about
the advantages of owning this particular sense—that ot humor. It seems to
ins If yon have this sense of humor
ind do not hare to force a smile you
|ust chuckle because you can't help lt
While doing tbe most Impossible things
roar thoughts will be bubbling over
with the funny side of lt. Really I
ton't think there ls a situation, no matter how trying, but ls msde better by
the power to see tbe fun In It. Why*, I
knew a woman with s sense ot humor
who when putting on her widow's bonnet Just before attending the burial
services of a husband sbe had positively worshiped actually laughed at the
absurd angle tbe milliner bad put a
bow on her cap.
The humor sense, though, ls some-
femes called dangerous, and sobersides
even consider It frivolous. There Is no
greater safety valve, however, and the
happy possessor sbonld deem himself
blessed of tbe gods.
i It Is said that few women own a
real sense of humor, but we women
know this Is as false as most of the
theorizing shout our ssx. We may not
be able to see tbe fun In the same
things that a man does, but too msny
women sre fsclng distressing conditions and actually getting amusement
out of tbem to deny her this sixth snd
most blessed of senses. These are the
arguments tbe women bended out to
the men at table. And their answer
was, "Lots of women think they have
a sense of humor wben they hove only
a dogged sort of 'grin and bear It
courage.'" They admitted "that it
was much better to smile than to
weep," to tnke life cheerfully snd keep
en fighting thnn to "chuck the Job,"
but tbey did not tblnk this attitude
one of humor, rather something mors
I "Lots ot women, too," they continued, "think tbey have a sense ot humor because they can see a well sharpened point to a Joke. That Is only perception, a quick wit  Others lay claim
,to tbe coveted possession when they
can enjoy n Joke st snotbsr's expense
snd realize how excruciatingly funny
are the happenings of their Mends."
1 Well, we all finished tbe symposium
by conceding thst the person possessed
of a rent sense of humor enjoys a Joke
Just as much at bis own expense ss
at bis neighbors nnd that the gods bad

the really well dressed woman regards
tbe Chinese Jade plaque as an Imperative asset to her Jewel case. Quite

A simple ml* and potato soup tbat

and two onions.   Boil tbem In enough
water to cover until tender and tben

| Ing bot milk, season wltb salt, pepper
i and butter. Let the whole come to the
| boiling point, add a beaten egg lf de-
| sired and serve Immediately.   A bit of
| minced parsley Improves lt
A bot nourishing dish of oysters and
macaroni ls welcome In cold weather.
Boll tbe macaroni until tender, put a
layer ot tt over tbe bottom of a buttered baking dlsb, then cover with a layer
of oysters, add another ot macaroni,
and so on until tbe dish Is filled. Season each layer with pepper and salt
and also add a bit of butter. If tbe
top layer ls one ot oysters sprinkle
well with powdered bread or cracker
crumbs. It the last layer is one ot
macaroni the breadcrumbs will not be
needed. Pour In enough milk beaten
with a large egg to cover tbe contents
of the dish and bake ln a hot oven.
For another luncheon dish mince a
cold piece of boiled tongue. Mix lt
with a hot cream sauce, adding tbe
beaten yolk of an egg to glvo richness. Let it simmer very slowly over
the fire while eome delicate slices ot
toast are being buttered. Cover each
piece of toast with tbe mixture and.
send to tbe table ln a covered dish.
Ham may be used instead of tongue.
For deviled bam, bo good ln sandwiches for the lunch basket have

It Was Rapid, but Disastrous, end

Ont ot tbe most singular fishing devices Imaginable was discovered by accident ln France. Though extremely
simple, tbe system is revolutionary.
A pond on the farm of la Mnrle-
qnette, bordered by rocky shores, was
drained one year by the aid ot a steam
pump. Each stroke ot the piston drew
hp twenty-five gallons ot water, and
the pond was emptied In a few hours,
and not only was the water drawn ofr.
but all tbe fishes also were transferred
to a new element.
This was a revolution. Tbe owners
of ponds ln the neighborhood followed
suit and the proprietor of the pump
made a specialty of this sort ot work.
He "let" one ot hla pumps, modified
for the purpose. The peasants of tbe
region called lt "the flsb pump." Bach
stroke of the piston brought up torrents of water; ln whicb were fish and
crawfish, together with mud and debris,
One pond of several acres was cleared ot flsb at an expense of 80 francs,
or $720. The process was Ingenious,
but"as one cannot bare bis flsb and eat
It, too, and as such rapid consumption

went down to the great city and tn a
very unostentatious manner dispatched
the man she believed to be ber people's
greatest eoemy.-New York Amvlcan.
