but which has not been called for,

A. B. Hood reported that $1000

C mnt of the purchase of the
grounds. The balance, ahout $4000,

asking tbe local association to send
a delegate to the annual meeting of
the society, which will be held in
Victoria on January 9th, and also to
forward before the 19th inst. any

Livestock Commissioner Jull
Spoke on This Subject
to Local Breeders
Expressions of Esteem Tendered Retiring Alderman
On Monday evening M. A. Jull,
provincial live stock commissioner,
delivered a lecture, under the auspices of the Grand Forks Poultry
association, in the city hall to a
large gathering, his subject Ijeing
"Poultry for Profit."
Mr. Jull opened his address by
pointing out the utility of the different breeds, explaining the laying
qualities of each variety, and the purposes served by the American birds,
such as the Plymouth Rocks, Wy-
andottes and Rhode Island Reds,
explaining how they are regarded
as layers as well as for table use.
He commented • favorable on the
French variety, the Houdan, which,
he Baid, was a splendid layer and
had good table qualities. Many
other varieties were also dealt
with by the speaker.
Mr. Jull favored the breeding of
but one variety, and striving for
perfection in that variety. If a person made a failure of one breed, he
would not be apt to make a success
of another kind. To attain success it
was absolutely necesBsry to give the
lairds proper care and attention.
Comfortable quarters, a varii-ty of
foods and plenty of etercise were essential requirements. The latter
could be supplied by providing
them with a deep litter of straw in
their houses, in which all grain
should be thrown. This would keep
them scratching for their food,
which would keep them busy and increase the egg production.
The speaker said he hnd heen informed that poultry feed iB much
higher here than in Vancouver,
Nelson and other points in the
province, while strictly fresh eggs
are. from 15 to 30 cents per dozen
less here than at other interior towns
or at the coast. These conditions,
ho said, could be remedied by cooperation.
At the conclusion of his lecture,
Mr. Jull was tendered a hearty vote
of thanks.
The regtllar meeting of the city
council was held on Monday evening, all the members being present
except Aid. Smith.
The secretary of the school board
requested that the council appoint
an auditor to audit the school ac-
oounts for the current year. Colin
Campbell received the appointment.
A communication was received
from the provincial secretary,stating
that the plans of the isolation hospital, recently send to Victoria by the
council, were not acceptable to the
provincial health department. Several alterationnwere suggested. Dr.
Fagan, provincial health officer, will
visit the city about the first of tbe
new year, and the council decided to
let the matter remain in statu quo
until bis arrival here.
The mayor reported that he had
arranged a settlement with Wm.
Pearce, through his solicitors, for
the loss of a horse, which it was
claimed bad broken its leg on the
Cooper bridge, on a basis of $30.
The council rutified the settlement.
Aid. Follick drew attenriun lo the
unsafe condition uf tbe sidewalk on
the west side of First street, between
Bridge and Main; also to lhe side
walk where it joins the concrete
walk in front of tbe Royal bank
Referred to the board of works.
Before adjournment, Mayor Clark
informed the members of the council that Aid. Follick was with them
for the laBt time, as he intended to
leave for his new home in Vanoou
ver the next morning. The mayor
S|ioke very highly of Aid. Follick's
efficient services us chairman of the
finance committee. Although a new
member of the council, he Inn! discharged the duties of his important
department with much skill. He
was pleased to note the excellent condition of the finances of the city this
year under the guidance of the chairman of the finance committee. He
was sorry to see Mr. Follick leave
Grand Forks, and felt sure that had
he decided to remain here there was
no gift in the hands oi the citizens
th.it would not have been accorded
him. As a citizen he had only words
of praise for him. He had been a
very useful member of society, and a
staunch BUpporteJ of what he considered was right. H

to the fruit growers of Graud Forks
my best congratulations on securing

Velma Howard, th* American
Boawall   For  Selma   Lagorlof.
Almost everybody bas beard of Selma
Lugerlof, one of tbe most famous of
Sweden's women writers and educators, to whom tbe Nobel literary prize
waa awarded recently. But comparatively few people bave beard of Velma
Bwanston Howard. Mlsa Lngerlof'a
English translator. Vet to Mrs. Howard's beautiful and faithful Interpretations of her stories tbe Swedish authoress owes her present popularity
here In America.
"The Wonderful Adventures of
Nils." "Tbe Christ Legends" and Miss
Lugerlof* latest book. "Tbe Girl From
the Marshcroft." huve all been trans-
luted wltb wuiiilerful delicacy and
faithfulness to the original by Mrs.
Howard. Wben asked recently about

Die to Miss Lngerlof for nearly four
years, and I feel ns if there Is not
much left of Velma Swanston Howard's personality. It has all been merged Into tbe greater personality of »«'!-
ma Lagerlof."
To one wbo knows Mrs. Howard
there Is no fear thut ber own charm-
lug self or her literary ability will ever
become completely merged ln that of
another. Mrs. Howard's life bas been
one of varied activities and literary enthusiasms. She bas done very clever
editorial and creative work both here
and ln ber native country. Sweden.

might say tbat\she popularized Ibsen

The Character Book W'-.ich Is Undsr
Police Supervision.
I Among the many domestic problems that Germany has solved io its
own satisfaction is thnt of the giv-
; ing or refusing of a "character" to
! a servant. The following statement
of the system in vogue in Germany
shows how completely it answers its
Every   man   or  woman   seeking  to
enter the service of another, whether
as laborer, clerk or domestic servant1,
I is under obligation to procure a ser-
! vice book, which after purchase must
j be officially   stumped   by   the   police
authorities.    The authorities enter in
I the book a description of the holder,
i huviug reference to age, personal apv
I peurance  and   religion,
i    When u situation is-applied for the
prospectiVe employer can   see   nt   a
dunce whether the applicant has been
in service before nnd if so what kind
of work has been done.   If the applicant secures the situation the employer writes in the book. "Entered the
service ol So-and-so of such a street
and town,"   adding   the   dnte, a description   of  the   work  required  and
the wages given.
The employer retains the hook as
long as the engagement lasts and on
banding it back makes another entry,
"Left my service on such a date,"
with a few lines as to character and
the servant's reasons for leaving.
Thus the character book go"i round,
and the servant has never the uncomfortable necessity of asking her
mistress for a recommendation.
Forged characters are practienlly impossible, since th«s, whole system is
under police supervision.
Destitution in old age among domestic servants and the lower class
of artisans has become an impossibility in Germany, for within the last
fifteen years or so it has been made
compulsory for all who earn less than
$500 a year to insure themselves
uguinst want after their working lives
.ire over.
Honor For Sir dames.
On the great ocean greyhounds between New York rind England it has
been the custom to always remember
the widows and orphans of the seamen who perish while following their
perilous avocation. Subscription!- are
received at a concert given by tlie
passengers. The most distinguished
passenger is always selected to preside. This post of lienor nearly always falls to the lot of some multimillionaire or man of note of the
United States or England.
The Campiinia steamed inn
York recently with 1,614 sou..- .,i
board. As a sign of the changing
times, the honor nf speaking for the
widows and orphans came to Sir
James Whitney, freiuier of Ontario.
In a vigorou- speech he reminded the
passengers of tneir duty to those dependent on the brave men who had
lost their lives on the ocean. No less
than 158,000 had died during the last
38 years, from British ships, of whom
some 98,000 were drowned. The totat
loss of life from the ships of all nations was something appalling.
The contributions amounted to the
largest sum received in a long time.
Insulted the Goldfish.
This time it's the kindergarten that
has furnished a school remark which
deserves telling.
In the kindergartens of Toronto,
globes of goldfish are an interesting
feature, and the feeding of the fish is
a regular part of the pleasant kindergarten routine. In the present instance
the fish had been given breakfast, and
the teacher had called the children
back to their places. One little fellow who had started his school experience that morning, lingered near
the goldfish.
"Come along, Bobby," said the
teacher.   "We're going to sing."
In a drawling voice, and with a tone
that indicated greater interest in the
fish than in the singing, Bobby said,
"All right. I was just looking at your
sardines for a minute."
An  Ex-in*p«eter Chat* on the  Perils
of the  Oriental   Peeler.
The European officers of the Indian
pnlicf nre the hardest-worked body
of officials in the world, and their
duties, more particularly in the
country and jungle districts, are of
an exceedingly varied and difficult
From the earliest morning until far
into the night they are on the alert,
now quelling brawls in the baznarpy
or religions riots, now in pursuit of
dacoitf)  and  cattle  thieves,  or  probing    apparently   unfathomable   mys-
| teries of daring robberies and murder

; tecting     the     law-abiding     citizens

i and trying to brim: the latter to hook,
( they are often   called out   to secure
J absconding   elephants,   runninji   riot

I tations, or to free an outlying village
from the attentions of a man-eating
And, in order to cone with all such
eventualities, nn insp"ctor%of a district, comprising perhaps forty or
more villages, each separated from
the other by mih'S of impenetrable
jungle, is given only one or two white
constables and a posse of native
policemen. The latter are mostly
Pathans, a physically well-developed
and strong people, but, unfortunately,
quite unreliable and often treacherous.
Moreover, to increase further the
difficulties of the position, the people
in towns and villages show an open
antipathy, not to say hostility, to the
police force. Instedd of assisting,
they place difficulties in the way,
and mislead the officers, even though
they might be in possession of clues
as to the identity or whereabouts of
the wanted criminals.
If, further, we take into consideration the fact that the criminal gangs
are invariably closely 'organized secret societies, such as societies of
burglars, cattle thieves, hmisehreak-
ers, dacoits, etc.. the roa.ler will bo
abie to irauge the enormity of the
problems with w hich the Indian
police have to cope in tlie course of
Uieir daily routine. Perhaps routine
is hardly the word to describe conditions offering so much variety and
Thus, a couple of years ago, I waa
in charge of an extensive jungle dis-
trict,in the Punjab, som* eighty miles
to tbe south of Khan. At the time
we were pestered with a particularly
audacious gang of robbers, whose
deeds and tactics proved them to he
at the very height of their profession,
and well acquainted with local conditions. They operated indiscriminately in the European and native
settlements, and had even forced
their entrance into the police and
military posts, with a view to stealing weapons, and all kinds of valuables on which they could lay their
A peculiar feature of their mode of
/procedure was tbat they invariably
administered some insidious drug to
their intended victims, and whilst the
latter were under its effect quietly
raided the place and disappeared before tne alarm could be given. This
fact satisfied us that the native servants were party to the conspiracy;
out whether they had been terrorized
into silence, or whether they shared
.n the proceeds, the most stringent
examinations and inquiries proved
abortive. Promises of reward and
threats alike failed to loosen their
tongues, and in the absence of incriminating evidence we could not
eveji ar-est them.

Significance of Certain Numbers In the
Telegraphers' Code.
"In the jtelegraphers' code numbers
bave special significance of wblch the
general public is not aware," remarked
a vetenui key night the otber day.
"Mosr everybody knows that 30
means 'good night," or the end of a
story, but few outside the profession
know that 31 Is also a code sign. Railroad operators, however, know that
tbis call Is a signal to the operator at
the other end to come back and repeat
train signals to tbe sending operator.
It also has another meaning. Train
order to be signed by conductor and
engine driver.' Nineteen, on the other
band, means that tbe train order Is not
to be signed by conductor or engine
driver. Twenty-four has also tho latter significance on some roads.
"Five is simply an Interrogation
point and in the vernuculur could lie
translated 'Anything doing?' Thirteen
signifies -Do you understand?' Twenty-five means 'busy.' but nobody seems
to know how It came to bave thnt significance unless perhaps It means tbat
tbe operator Is stilt In the midst of his

A Common and a Dangerous Trouble-You Hast
Enrich the Blood to
Escape Danger.
Anaemia is simply a lack of blood.
It is one of the most common and at
the sume time most dangerous discuses with wdiich growing girls suffer.
It is common becnuse the blood so
often becomes impoverished during
development, when girls are too frequently allowed to over-study, overwork and suffer from a luck of exercise. It is dangerous becnuse of the
stealthiness of its approach, often
being well developed before its presence is recognized, and because of its
tendency to grow so steadily worse,
if not promptly checked, that it muy
run into con umption.
Tbe value of the tonic treatment

Hamilton Man Badly Injured.
Reuben Atherton, of 'J67 Ferguson
Ave, Hamilton, an employee of the
Otis Ek'vntor Co., sustained serious
injury while at work. A plank fell
from a height on to his right foot,
crushing it bndly. He was taken
home, where Zam-Buk was applied
with good results.
Telling his experience of the halm,
lie said: "After the doctor had dressed the damaged foot with some preparation of his own I was in great
pain, and as day after day 1 seemed
lo get no relief I left off medical
treatment and tried Zam-Buk, From
the very first application I traced an
improvement. Zam-Buk really seemed
to act like magic, cleaning all the
unhealthy matter from tlie wounds,
drawing out all discoloration, inflammation and soreness; antl started
healing in quick time. In two .weeks
the toe and foot were well again.
Zam-Buk balm is cer'.ainly a wonderful healer, and I would not care to
be without a box in the house. You
can use the above statement in any
paper, books or publications, as it
may lead some other sufferer to use
Zam-Buk and get relief as I did."
All workers should keep Zam-Buk
handy. Applied to a cut or wpund, it
stops the pain, commences healing,
and—whnt is equally fine—it prevents
all possibility of blood-poisoning.
Zam-Buk is equally good for skin
diseases, and cures eczema, itch, ulcers, abscesses, vnricose ulcers scalp

Tut: financial statement of
tho Grand Forks Agricultural
association is of such a nature
tliat. it can Im road with pleasure liy every citizen of thu
district. It is an unusual feat
for an agricultural association
to break even with its initial
exihibition. Such enterprises
generally show a deficit; and,
as they are of a public character, the people gladly foot the
bills. J Jut the local association has done better than to
break even. It has, after
paying all prizes and expenses
in connection with its first
fair, a substantial balance on
the right side of the ledger.
This is an accomplishment that
we do not believe has yet been
equalled in this province, and
it would lie an easy and pleasant task, had we the time and
space at present, to v(*rite columns of deserved praise in lie-
half of the men who so ably
directed the enterprise. The
good .icsults of tho fair are
now apparent to every one.
It is therefore gratifying to be
able to state that we are to
have another exhibition next
fall, and that practically all of
the old officers will be in
charge of it.

had been coming out. in combs full
and was very dry and bjittle and the
scalp was always itching and full of
dandruff'. I have used two bottles of
Parisian Sage and it has stopped my
hair from falling, the itching and dandruff have disappeared and my hair is
fine and soft and glossy. I would not
be without this fine hair tonic for
many times the price."
For women, men or children Parisian Sage is wi)hout anv doubt the
finest preparation for the hair. Dain
tily perfumed, it is free from grease or
stickiness, and ought to be where
every member of the family could use
it daily. Large bottle 50 cents from
all druggists or f.toui the proprietors,

Ont. The girl with the auburn hair is
on every package. Sold and guaranteed by H. E. Woodland & Co.
Some business men nre so fond of
being deceived that they even endeavor to believe that they can reach
the consumers of this district without advertising in The Sun.

Could we afford to buy ana give away hundreds of thousands of 50-cent bottles of Psychine (pronounced Si-
keen) if we did not know from a third of a
century's experience that it was
the greatest vitality-builder
of the age ?
Tern know what it would mean to ui
were Psychine a preparation without
• definite, beneficial action.
After tbe first bottle wblcb we would
;buy, no more would be purchased.
, And we would go out of business.
But we're not going out of business,
land our confidence tbat we're not Is
'based -upon our third of a century's
experience with Psychine.
Tea years after Confederation we
commenced compounding Psychine.
Since tbat time, wc have sold many
millions of bottles.
We bave cured many hundreds of
thousands of virulent ar.v. oftentimes
fatal cases of diseases.
We have in our files many hundreds
'of thousands of unsolicited testimonials.
And we have grown from a small
beginning to be one of the largest proprietary manufacturers in tbis country.
Here then Is proof that we have in
Psychine a preparation with abundant
an! demonstrated effectiveness, more so
than any otber preparation we, or anyone else, ever heard of.
Here then is the reason of our unalterable confidence ln Psychine. that it
is tn fact the greatest preparation of
Its kind ln tbe world.
Here then Is why we have Inaugurated a policy of actually buying hundreds of thousands of bottles of Psychine to give to those who should use.
To those who are blindly groping
ln the dark for relief from their
misery, who may perhaps be using
wrong methods to recover their health
and their strength.

The greatest and most effective
agents for the bodily health are the
white corpuscles, phagocytes.
These white corpuscles eat any germ
of disease that gains an entrance to the
body, when they're in large enough
numbers and sufficiently strong.
When they're not sufficiently strong,
the disease germs devour them and
disease holds the body.
* * *
■Pot centuries almost, herbs, nature's
own remedies, have been the most efficient foe to disease.
We bave not known very definitely
just how.
But now science tells us that certain
of these herbs increase the number of
the white corpuscles and their strength.
These certWn herbs are Incorporated
ln Psychine.
We go to the ends of tbe earth for
these herbs—to Arabia, to South America, to China and to Japan.
They are compounded ln the most
costly chemical appliances in this country.
And the result is Psychine—for a
third of a century the most effective
vitality-builder the world has known.
The one preparation that has cured
many thousands of the following diseases:
La Grippe Bronchial Coughs
Bronchitis Weak Lungs
Hemorrhages Weak Vo|je

Anaemia Early Decline

There is more Catarrh in this section of th? country than all other diseases put together, and until the last
few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable.
Science lias proven catarrh to be a
constitutional disease, and therefore
requires constitutional treatment.
Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured
by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio,
is the only constitutional eure on tlie
market. It is taken internally in
doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful.
It acts directly on the blood and mucous surfaces of the system. They offer
one hundred dollars for any case it
fails to cure. Send for circulars and

Tha Authorities of the Capital of tha
Anglo-Egyptian Soudan Have Laid.
Out the Town With a View to Making It tho Most Beautiful In tha
Dark Continent—At Present It Hal
Very Little to Boast Of.
The visitors' first impression of
the capital of the Auglo-Kgyptian
Soudan cannot fail to be a very pleasant one. The visitor sees from'tha
river, as he steams up, a long bank
of shady trees, green and grateful
in the heat of the March sun, with
here and there brilliant blossoms
gleaming, crimson, yellow, and
mauve. Behind the trees can be
caught glimpaes of cool, verandahed
houses, lying back in their gardens.
About tlie middle glistens the palace
of the Governor-General, with the
flags of Britain and Egypt floating
from the roof. Out of the ruins of
Gordon's house this imposing emblem of British dominion has sprung
It is not beautiful, but it stands
there, clean and solid and four-square,
fit emblem of the work Britain has
done and is doing in the Soudan-
tidying up and cleaning and straightening out.
Some   day   Khartoum   will   be   the
f;arden city of Africa. It has been
aid out with that view. Just now
the immensely wide streets are bordered only by small trees which make
'the hot, dusty expanses of roadway
seem dustier and hotter by mocking
the wayfarer, as if a thirsty man
should have a thimbleful of water offered to him. But growth is rapid
here. Before many years are past
these saplings wil spread their leafage wide, and everywhere one will
walk beneath a cool canopy of whispering leaves.
At present nobody walks. The first
morning I was here I made a great
mistake. I went out ior a stroll round
to get an idea of the town. Frankly,
I thought it was a detestable place.
"There is about enough here," I said,
"to make a decent-sized village, and
they have spread over an area big
enough for the cite of a city." It was
very hot. It was also windy. Dust
lay thick all over except in the very
middle of the road. I saw no white
people about. I came back to tho
hotel sticky and tired and in a bad
But after a cool drink in a long
chair on the balcony looi"n^ over the
river and over thc great stretch of
desert bounded by fascinating far-off
'hills, I reflected and began to under-
stand. In this dry atmosphere thirst
becomes a habit, and it is necessary
to drink often of lime juice or lemonade or very light beer. Ai I cooled
off I became more reasonable. I noticed the gathering of donkeys an!
of rickshaws drawn by small ponie-i
'near the gate of the hotel on the river's edge. Everybody who went out
took one or the other. Since then I
'have done likewise, and I have nr,
further complaints. There is one walk,
and a very pleasant one, left-handed
along the liver towards the point
where the Blue and the White Niles
meet, keeping each its distinctive color for many miles down, and when
the steam ferry plies to Otndurmaii.
on the further bank. But no one
would dream of walking even here un
der the palm trees until the sun lias
'dropped low. Rides in tho early morn,
ing freshness over the desert sand
and lawn tennis as soon as the shadows begin to lengthen—that is how
we take our exercise in Khartoum.
The distances wouid really be difficult, even if tlie roads were not so
dusty and hot. You are told that
aome place you want to go to is "at
tlie end of the street." This means
at least a mile, and sometimes nearly
two. Yet tlie buildings are scattered
only here and tliere. There is but one
good European shop. There are bits
of pavement in places, but for the
most part roadway and sidewalk have
not yot been separated. Consequently,
one has the sense of wandering about
a suburb whicli is still in the builders' hands and only just beginning
to be occupied. Well, for "suburb"
read "city," and that is perfectly true
of Khartoum
"Some day," they said to themselves, these far-sighted Englishmen
and Scotsmen and Irishmen, not forgetting Welshmen, "some day this I
vast country will, instead of being |
mostly desert, be covered with wheat
fields and cotton fields. Work and
water will turn the barren sand into
one of the great producing countries
of the world. In that day Khartoum
will no lonrer bc the head-place of a
province which is still luoked upon
as the Cinderella of the British Empire and treated accordingly.
"It will bo the capital of a rich and
powerful dominion. Whether it will
be fitted to play this important part
in the world-drama, and set an example to other capitals, depends upon
us, said these Britons, filled with a
great hope and pride; and they
mapped out tlie place accordingly.
Even in the native town away back
from the river there is order and design. Passing through the vast open
space of Abbos-squaro, which will in
time rank as one of the finest in the
world, you come to the markets, rows
and rows of straw huts with a man
'or a woman squatting in each, ready
to chaffer interminably for the eggs
or tomatoes or the chickens or the
green stuff spread on the ground outside. As you wander through, look
along every street of low mud houses,
and you will see it stretching away
'dead straight to where the town ends
on the desert. For a complete contrast go over to Omdurman. Eleven
years ago this was still the Dervish
capital, the residence of the False
Prophet who made his power felt over
nearly half Africa. It was a slave-
trading centre, a vast prison, where
every man felt himself a captive and
know that a turn of fortune's wheel
might at any time number him among
the victims who were hanged on high
fallows in the market-place every
riday to strike the Khalifa's terror
home to every heart. It was also a
vast harem, where women raided
from many tribes were herded together to give the fanatical Baggara a
foretaste of their bestial paradise.
A Satisfactory Increase
During his visit to Canada, Ri_.ht
Rev. Arthur Winnington-Ingra.ii
Bishop of I-ondon, has taken occasion
to refute tlie story of the decadence
of the Old Country. He said >_iat the
impression had been created by the
typical Englishman's lack of boastful-
ness, "The Americans think that John
Bull is serious when he deprecates
himself," said the bishop, "but hies*
you he doesn't mean it. If you ininit
ine over here that John Bull is plnye 1
out, you're making the mistake of your
life. Don't you be deceived by his
habit of deprecating himself."
The bishop did not find many Cana
dinns with tbe habit of deprecatinc
themselves. Every one who met him
wanted to know what he thought of
the growth of Canada since he was last
here. That was the query put to him
during his short stay in Toronto, for
he did not make the capital of Ontarir
one of his stopping places. Even in
the little town of Aylmer, he found
the citizens anxious to know if he had
not been duly impressed with the fact
that the Dominion is now enjoying
its growing time. To the friends of
his brother he gave a' very character
istic answer. "The last time I was
here," he said, "I had nine nephew*
and nieces; this time I find I have
four more. At this rate Canada's pop
ulation is increasing very satisfactorily."
Mme. Melba's Australian Tour.
Mme. Melba, who recently arnvul
in England from Australia, has been
chatting with an interviewer concern-
ing some of her experiences whilst on
tour "When I leached Melbourne
it had been arranged that a female
choir of 1,500 voices should greet me:
but, unfortunately, the crowd was so
dense that I could not hear the sing
ing. In fact, so great was the crush
at tlie railway station that, the police
locked nie up in a small telephone-
box." A pathetic incident happened
at this stage. A little girl of ten had
been deputed to present the prima
donna with a bouquet. Mme. Melba,
shut up in the telephone-box until
the dispersal of the crowd, was dis
turbed by the weeping of the child in
distress. An official was sent to investigate, and a bedraggled child in
tattered frock was ushered in, holdic.i.
forth in forlorn fashion a bunch of
melancholy stalks—all that remained
of the bouquet she had hoped to present to the great operatic star.
Earl Grey's Trip.
Nothing in the period ol Enrl Grev'«
Governor-Generalship of Cr _nda ha*
been more spectacular or more indicative of his interest in the wide Dominion which he serves thnn the iour-
ney to and across Hud-on Bay mi
which he has been engaged. To hrave
the hardships of the canoe ride from
Norway House, a Hudson Bay post
ou the Nelson River, to Fort Church
ill is sacrifice worthy of all praise.
From that point across the bay to
Hudson Straits and home to Quebec
by the Atlantic the journey wo- mate
in a Government steamer. The re-ult
of this tour is to add materially to
His Kxcellency's knowledge of the oft-
termed "Frozen North," a term which
Earl Grey himself expects to have occasion to considerably modify.
The arrival of the Governor-General
at Norway House took place in a

festive air to the event hy firiiiw. a

jof about $100,000 a year, in spite ot
the fact thnt it has never been sold at
a railway bookstall and no newsboy
has ever cried its name in the street.
Practically the only Reople who buy
it are Government officials and lawyers.
The Gazette is the oldest and at the
same time the youngest newspaper in
the kingdom, as well as being the
most important. It was first publish
ed in 1665, in the'reign of Charles II..
and has ever since appeared twice a
week, with supplementary issues now
and then if required. It was first published at Oxford, as the court was in
residence there during the Plague, but
when the latter abated it was brought
to London, and for more than 130
years has been published by Messrs.
Harrison, tlie well-known printers of
St. Martin's Lane. At the same time,
it is the youngest newspaper on account of the fact that it wns only a
few months ago that it contained the
following announcement:—
"This Journal has been registered at
the G.P.O. for transmission by inland
post as a newspaper."
Previously it had been regarded as
a Government publication only, and
was dispatched "O.H.M.S.," in this
way escaping postal charges altogether; but apparently the Government
snw a way to reap a few extra halfpennies.
An interesting illustration of the
important position held by Tho, Gazette before newspapers and telegraphs
were what they are is furnished by
tile manner in which the news of tlie
Battle of the Alma was made publio
in 1854. The news was received by
the Secretary of State on Saturday
evening. There were no newspapers
until Sunday, and it was important
that the public anxiety should be allayed by the widest possible circulation of such a piece of news.
James Harrison was sent for, and
the position explained to him when he
reached Downing Street. He iminedi
ately thought of the theatres. There
were three of them open; why not
have the telegram read out there? The
plan wns considered excellent, and
Mr. Harrison returned to St. Martin's
Lane, set up the news with his own
hands, and sent men round to the
theatres with early copies of The Gaz
ette. "See the manager," were the instructions to the messengers. "Take
no refusal. Insist on having the per
formance stopped by order of the Secretary of State while this news is read
out." The men obeyed the order to
the letter, and at Drury Lane and
other theatres the scenes were historic
In the meantime Mr. Harrison mnde
his way to the Mansion House and
communicated the glad tidings to tht
Lord Mayor and sheriffs.
Street Names In Metropolis Pique th*
To the man who has read a little
history, and whose imagination is
slightly bigger thnn his hat, the
streets "of London are like the chapters in a tremendously long, fascinating romance written, in collaboration,
by all the writers of romance, from
Geoffrey Chaucer of Maurice Hewlett.
It is, of course, unfortunate that in
most cases the writing on tlie wails
hns been rubbed out, as it were. Only
the titles of the chapters remain in
tlie names of the streets. But, after
all, if one hns read Chaucer and
Shakespeare and Walter Scott, and a
few old histories of London, one can
til! up the text out of one's imagina.
tion and memory, writes Philip Giblu
in tiie Graphic.
These street names are like chapter-headings which suggest tlie most
exciting adventures, full of blood and
mystery, or of love and romance, or
of tragedy and comedy, or of pomp
and pageantry. Tlie strangest characters of history come slinking or swaggering along when the name of a London street gives tlie title to a new
chapter. And many old ghosts jostle
the living people on the pathway when
a few letters at a street corner turn
the key in the clockwork of one's
brain. Yet often one is jerked up by
the strangest contrasts, by the queerest incongruities, so tliat one laugtiB
aloud, to the confusion of the passers-
by, for these street names play the
most curious tricks with what one is
pleased to call one's imagination.
The other day, for instance, I found
myself in Fashion street, Spitalfields,
and straightway I saw a vision of the
old days when the fine ladies of the
town came here in their hoops and
farthingales to buy their silks and ribbons. But walking from one end of
the squalid street to the other 1 saw
that it was the home of rag-merchants
and of second-hand clothes dealers!
Only yesterday I looked up at a
street corner and saw that I was in
Eden Grove. It is in Holloway, and
here, two centuries ago, in the springtime, the birds sffttg roundelays to
their sweethearts, while little green
buds were bursting on tho bough, and
many a pretty Eve wandered in the
twilight with her Adam. The grove
has gone, and it is no longer Eden!
Paradise street, Bermondsey, has also lost the meaning of its name. It is
true that St. Peter and the Guardian
Angels have a church here, but in
the same street is a police station,
which suggests Paradise Lost.
It is strange sometimes how, in a
walk down a dismal, dreary street,
there comes to one the subtle, sweet
perfume of fragrant old memories. I
could not understand that when 1
strolled down Commercial Road the
other day 1 Then I realized that it was
an imaginative perfume, aroused by
the names of the street corners—Mar.
igold street, Greenfield street, Arbour
street, Heath street, Plough street-
reminiscent of the May-days of Mer-
rie England, when here the fields lay
open to the sun and the rain, and the
breezes were laden with the good
scent of the earth. As for ghosts, they
haunt one always in the London
street. I pass every day down the
Strand, and every day the modern
houses disappear, and I see tlie great
palaces of Elizabethan and Jacobean
London along the river-side; and out
of the side-streets come the Earls of
Dorset and Arundel, "Doggie Steenie,"
my Lord of Buckingham, the gallant
Essex, lhat "false smiling flatterer,"
Henry of Northampton, and many another figure in doublet and trunk
What ghosts lurk in Hanging
Sword Alley—that dark passage which
a man's arms can span, still thrust
like a sword into the heart of our
newspaper world! In the old days
there were murders here, when tlie
White friars and the Black friars were
chanting close by, and when in this
republic of Alsatia the bullies were
spilling red wine (and often red
blood) in the filthy taverna.

A grievious event happened one
day recently on *u farm near Cnnit-
ton. when "Dan," an aged and superannuated horse, deliberately committed suicide. After heing a faithful
old servant for ""nv years and fearing the approach of another winter,
he jumped upon a (Ticket fence and
injured himself, but wns soon fixed
up by the farrier. But Dan's will
wns too strong to be baulked in that,
way. so he put his head into an opening in a rail fence, and throwing himself wns strangled to death.—Ontario,
The earliest mention of shoes is in
an    Ecyptian    papyrus   about   2,200
years before Christ.
Tyburn Gallows.
The last execution on a permanent
gallows in London took place ut Ty j
hum on Nov. 7, 1783, tlie malefactor
being one John Austin, condemned tor I
highway robbery with violence. "For
centuries Tyburn had been the scene
of executions. Tlie gallows consisted
of tune posts, and around it weoJ
open galleries, resembling race stands
in which seats were let. On account
of the disgraceful scenes on the road,
executions were transferred in 1783 to
tne urea in Iront of Newgate, despite
tne objections of residents, and on
Dec. 3 of that year the lirst hangim
took place there, when no less thai
leu were executed.—Loudon (spectator.

Jews For Australia9
The London Jewish Chronicle savs
that tlie Government of Western Australia is considering a business pro-
jioaal ior the purchase of an exten
sive area in thnt state on whicli to
settle n million Russian Jews. Tins
is a very astonishing statement, see.
ing that tlie total pOpUlatiou of We.t
eru Australia at toe Inst census in
1)101 was only liM,I!_4. If anything like
n million Russian Jews were dumped
down in Western Au.-tialiti they would
enormously outnumber the rest of the
population, and tlie country would
pnietioilly became a Russian colony
witli alien language and customs. It
is difficult to believe tout the Onglisb
speaking Western Australian) can
have contemplated so momentous a
chin,ge. There are over 5.0U0.UOO Jews
in tlie Russian Kmpire.

No Man is Stronger
Than His Stomach
A strong man is strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering from Weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the stomach and its associated organs, which impairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weak or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition
contained in food, which is the source of all physical
strength. When a man ''doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn't sleep well, has   an   uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and despond-
cat, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
Such  a man should use   Dr.  Pierce's   Golden Medical
Discovery.   It cures  diseases ol the stomach and  other
organs of digestion and nutrition.   It enriches the blood.
