Tbe discussion showed that the
size of the apple box endorsed is the
same as that set forth in the Fruit
Marks Act as required to be used
wben apples are packed "for export
only." When the Fruit Marks Act
was before parliament, tbe words
"for export only" were not at first
in the bill, but were inserted afterwards at the instance of millmen
who manufactured two sizes of apple boxes. Wben a fruit grower
packs his apples it is impossible for
him to know whether they are for
export or not. Consequently he uses
whatever box he prefers, and the result is conf us on. For this reason
the fruit growers of British Columbia think it would be better to bave
one standard size for all purposes,

Express Rates to Orop
In tbe judgment delivered by the
railway commission after an enquiry
into the express rates of Canada it
was decreed that as the tariffs of the
Canadian companies are too high,
there will have to be a reduction.
The form of contracts between shippers and companies were regarded
as unfair, and will have to be replaced. The methods of the companies were generally condemned.
A rate reduction of at least 10 per
cent on through express traffic has
been ordered by the commission.
The entertainment presented by
the Holy Trinity Sunday school in
the opera house on Saturday night
attracted a large audience. Mis.
Mclnnes rendered a couple of solos,
whicb were heartiy encored. The
butterfly drill, by nine girls, and
tbe two tableaux —"Sing a Song of
Sixpence" and "Queen of Hearts"—
were well presented, and received a
great deal of well merited applause.
Tbe little folks taking part in tbe
tableaux were Miss G. Heaven as
queen, Master H. Mclnnes as king,
Master Hall Barlee, as knave, and
Miss Tannis Barlee as maid. The
program was concluded witb tbe
musical play, "Cinderella." The
little actresses did remarkably well,
and were rewarded for their efforts
by repeated applause from the audience. Tbe costumes were very
pretty, and the ball scene was well
staged and faultlessly rendered.
Those who took part in the piece
were: Miss F. Gilpin, as the fairy
godmother; Miss M. Symes, Proudie;

Money io Mining
That mining investment is the
soundest aed most profitable of all
when 'nade under the advideof competent engineers and managed with
capability and integrity, is evident
from the fact that for the first eight
months of last year 120 mines paid
$48,301,333 in dividends, and this
despite tbe abnormal prices of tbe
metals, What other industry or
system of investment can show sucb
results? In tbe same period seven
smelting companies paid dividends
amounting to $11,269,600.—Mining

Everard Tomlinson waa considered
an admirable catch. He was a Hue
fellow lu every tvny and when he
came ot n{_e fell Ueir to a fortune ut
some iftMi.iswj lie was besieged by
fortune hunting wins.
It was mimethitiK of a relief, therefore, when Mrs. Stetson, an old friend
of his mother, reminded him tbat be
was promised to her for a visit at her
unpretentious bungalow on Lake Was-
sspogie for tbe lust two weeks ln September. He had engaged for this visit
ln tbe spring tu please bis mother and
before be bad made his round of bouse
parties. At tbat time be looked forward to two weeks in Mrs. Stetson's
bungalow as burying himself ln tbe
woods. Tbere was to be no otber
guest and tbe family consisted only of
Mrs. Stetson, her son, Roy, aged sixteen, and her daughter. Alice, aged
twenty. Tomliusnn waa told that lt
would not be necessary to bring evening dress: tbat he would need flannel
shirts and any old clothes he might
possess. His days would be passed Id
a rowboat and bis evenings In tbe living room of tbe bungulow wltb the
family sitting around a table reading
by a kerosene lamp.
After being bunted by spinsters
Tomlinson rather liked the Idea uf getting away by himself. True, tbere wat
Alice Stetson, wbo might be lying In
wait for bim, but It was not Improbable tbat he could get away occasionally alone for a pull over tbe waters
of tbe lake.
lt was near tbe 1st of October wben
Tomlinson was driven up to the rear
door of tbe bttngalow-the bouse faced
the lake and was built on its verge-
and tbe foliage uad already begun to
take on Us variegated uues. Mrs.
Stetson and Roy welcomed tbe guest.
Tomlinson noticed tbe abseuee of Miss
Alice and was so well bred as to say
that be hoped sbe was nut from borne.
Be was told that ahe waa In the bouse,
but would not appear before dinner.
Ber mother vaguely bluted tbat there
was a reason for ber keeping ber room
for tbe present, aud from the sympathetic tone In which the statement
was made Tomlinson Inferred that
some tad event bad occurred.
Alice came out of ber room as dinner was announced. Sbe did not say
anything about the lugubrious event.
bnt ibe looked Intensely aad. Indeed,
her eyes were red, an evidence that
abe bad been weeping. The effort she
Bade to seem cheerful was touching
Tomlinson was tempted to Inquire
what was the cause of ber melancholy,
but was too well bred to trespass on
the sacred feelings of a young girl.
Alice retired to ber room early In the
Tbe next morning ber depression
continued,' though Tomlinson noticed
tbat she ate heartily. Mrs. Stetson
suggested tbat tbe show Tomlinson
tbe beauties ot Wattsapugle lake. Alice
cut a look of appeal at ber mother,
et much ae to tay. "Jt'a cruel that 1
must exert myself to entertain a stranger when my heart Is crushed." but
the mother insisted, telling ber daughter tbat tbe fresh air would raise ber
spirits and that tbe should make an
i. Wbat kind nf an effort she should
make the mother did not explain. Roy
got out a boat, and aa Alice stepped
Into It dressed ln a very becoming
blouse and a short skirt Tomlinson
noticed tbat ahe possessed a foot aud
ankle the curves of wblcb were very
delicately turned. She asked Ilny If be

he said he wat going Instead for
ducks the gave hiin n reproachful
glance. Tomlluton, relieved at Rny'i
refusal, took tbe oars and pulled away
from tbe front porch, which served at
a landing for the little bungalow burled under trees and shrubbery, dipping bis oars Into water lilies, tben
gliding away Into deep water.
Tbere was an autumn crlspoesi In
the air. and Tutnllnson wished the lady
were In a better condition to enjoy It
wltb him. He drew ber Into conversation and soon learned tbe cause of her
distress. When he admired a clump ot
trees nn the crest of a knoll abe said,
"Mr. Mieklejohn always admired that."
When be pulled Into a llttle'cove with
a tiny beach overhung with wlldwnod
and remarked what a charming spot it
was she replied sadly. "Mr. Mieklejohn and I always used to pull In here
when we came out boating."
"May. I ask who Mr. Mieklejohn Is?"
"Oh!" This wns an exclamation at
though she had unwittingly betrayed
herself. "Mr. Mieklejohn Is a very
good friend of ours. He left us yesterday morning Just before you came."
It was all out. This bee Mieklejohn
bad been tbere, bad captured tbe prize
and there was no sweetness left for
poor Tomlinson,
"Pardon me." he said, with a suspicion of hauteur. "1 did not know that
I was trespassing on sacred ground."
"Ob, no. 1 assure you you quite mistake me."
"in what respect?"
"It's as I said. Mr. Mieklejohn Is a
very good friend to us all—mother,

Tomlinson was disgruntled. Notwithstanding tbat thia was very different
from tbe social life he bad been en-
Joying be would bave liked the
change, especially for the company of
this pretty girl, had not Mieklejohn
spoiled tt all by going away, taking
ber heart wltb him. Wltb tbe girls
Tomlinson bad met be was surfeited.
Here was a girl so preoccupied wltb
another tbat sbe couldn't even be companionable. Thia ts a specimen of tbe
way she talked abuut Mieklejohn:
"Do you sing? Nol Mr. Mieklejohn
has such a lovely tenor voice. When
be sings be thrills me. He used to sing
parts from 'Faust' and I almost
wished I bad been Marguerite. Mr.
Mieklejohn It very versatile. He Is the
best whist player, tbe best billiard
player, tbe best horseback rider, tbe
best swimmer"—
"Did you tumble out of tbe boat
wben he was bere tbat be might swim
ashore with you?"
"How ridiculous!" She pouted. Tomlinson asked ber to go on with the catalogue of Mleklejohn's accomplishments, but sbe turned away from him

rudder rope, headed the boat for tbe
After dinner Alice sat at tbe table in
tbe living room wltb ber mother, her
brother and Tomlinson—that Is to say,
sbe was going to sit tbere, bnt the
guest spoiled It all and drove her away
by asking If Mr. Mieklejohn read poetry to ber by tbe dim light of the kerosene lamp. At ibis reference to tbe
dear departed Mieklejohn Mrs. Stetson
cast a frightened glance at ber daughter. Roy waa reading a book on tbe
game of football and was oblivious to
tbe shock to his sister's sensibilities.
Alice arose and. with ber eyes bent to
tbe floor, left tbe room. Tomlinson
could bave bitten off his tongue, for a
long evening was before bim with oo
otber companions than an elderly lady
and a boy, tbe room In wblcb tbey
were being lighted by a dim lamp.
Mrs. Stetson retired at 9 and Roy half
an hour later. Tomlinson vowed tbat
it tbe period of this seclusion ever ex-
pired-lt teemed to him that It never
would-be would not get into aucb a
trap again. Resides, be waa much
piqued after having been tuught by
finer girl* to be completely Ignored,
considered a personage nf no Importance whatever compared with tbe Immaculate Mieklejohn. A desire came
to bim to supplant Mr. Mleklejubn and
when be bad dune su leave Lake Was-
aapogle wltb bis nose ln the air.
Tbe next morning Mrs. Stetson, evidently still concerned about ber daughter's sorrow, suggested another boat
ride. Alice didn't seem to care what
she did ao long as Mr. Mleklejobu was
absent Sbe yielded possibly to her
mother's with. The boat wat taken
out and the guest ot the bouse, with
the littlest girt again left the bungalow.
'tomlinson bore the references to
Mieklejohn. gritting bit teeth, but
making no reply. His object wat
rather to draw Alice's attention away
from thli remarkable man to otber
subjects from which * be might the
more easily direct it to himself. He
exerted whatever lady killing faculties
he possessed for an hour, at the end of
wblcb time bit companion teemed
really to bave plucked up tome Interest in ber surroundings. Tben for an
hour the failed to mention tbe lost one.
Tomlinson wat encouraged.
Two weeks passed, eacb day being a
gradual drawing away of Alice Station from a man who wat absent to a
man wbo wit present. All tbe dell-
clout little nookt wblcb bordered on
the lake were visited again and again,
and at laat Tomllnaou chuckled to
"Now bring on your Mieklejohn."
One bright morning tbey were drifting Idly through some rushes. There's
nothing like some rushes, some smooth
water, a little brush and a few overhanging trees, wltb a man and a girl
lo a boat to make a picture of young
love. Tomlinson was making an effort
to complete tbe thntterlug of tbe ta-
cred image—Mieklejohn. He overshot
tbe mark and made use of the word
"love." Had Mtas Stetson been sitting
at ibe otber end of the boat from him.

Tried Hlmpelf.
Orl'l'a recently had the unusual
spectacle of a magistrate trying a caw
igainst himself. Moreover, nfter hear,

tratc dismissed the charge.
When court opened on Friday morning, the first case called wns tha'
against "George H. Clark, for allow

a muzzle." The charge was laid hi
Constable Georgfe Reeve, who wa* act.

police magistrate, who evidently hetl

Knox, A. Clark and C. B. Hewett

support of his charge, but all three
disavowed any knowledge ae to whether or not Mr Clarke's dog had

mentioned in the charge, i His Wnr
ship thereupon dismissed the esse, remarking that he had done his best to
comply with the regulations as to muz

Edward tht Seventh.
Although Mr. Henniker Heaton
M.P., has announced his approaching
retirement Irom Canterbury, which hu
has represented for twenty-five years,
his agitation ior cheaper cable rated
shows that he is as active as ever in
the matter of postal reform. The
country has to thank him for the establishment of penny postage through
out the Empire and to the United
States, and will one day have to
thank him for the extension of the
system to France. The City of London conferred its freedom upon him
eleven years ago, and successive Governments have pressed a K.C.M.G.
upon him. But Mr. Heaton has four
times declined the honor. There il
a joke in connection with Mr. Hea-
ton's friendship with Mr. Marconi
which might bear repetition. When
he. was made a Freeman of the City
of London Mr. Marconi accompanied
him, and when the letter's turn came
and he received tlie freedom of Rome,
he insisted that Mr. Heaton should
return the coiftpliment by going with
him to Rome. Some little time belor ..
this Sir Benjamin Stone had photographed them together on the terrace
ot the House of Commons, in ths
costumes of their respective courts,
Mr. Marconi sent a copy of this to an
Italian newspaper, and the latter published it on the day Mr. Marconi received the freedom of Rome over the
inscription: "Mr. Marconi and King
Edward the Seventh." One of Mr
Heaiton's most treasured possessions
—and he only received it during hi*
election campaign this year—is a letter irom Mr. Chamberlain wishing
him success. Lord Desborough has
chosen the following extract from it as
an inscription for Mr. Heaton's tomb
stone: "lt has been given to few men
to promote reforms independently,
and to see them adopted in their' own
lifetime with universal approval.''
There is an amusing anecdote in connection with a Parliamentary chess
match which the famous postal reformer got up between Great Britain
and America in 1907. It was played
by cable, and at one stage of the game
everything pointed to the defeat of the
new world players. Realizing this,
they wired "You're too good for us;
we'll play you at poker I The game,
however, ended in a draw, and the
offer to play poker has not been accepted.
Inland's Surnamtt.
The impression is general that at
least nine out of every ten men in Ireland are named Pat Murphy, and tor
once there is some real ground for the
popular impression, for, if you call
every person you meet in Ireland
"Murphy," you will bit right once in
every eight times, li the others are
not named Murphy, the chances are
two in seventeen that they are Kellys.
A strong and growing rival of Murphy
and Kelly, however, is Smith. In both
England and Scotland Smith is far
in the lead, and in Wales beats Jones
by a narrow margin.
The numbet of typical English
names in Ireland is surprising.
Messrs. Baker, Cooper, Long, Small,
Turner, etc., are frequently encountered, but, despite this invasion and
the equaliy vigorous attack ot Welsh
Joneses, there ure enough left of the
Aherns, Riordans, Fagans, and Moyni-
hana to keep alive the traditions of the
Any Murphy in Ireland, or out of it,
can tell you that "Murphy" is a concession to the poor, ignorant English,
who found difficulty in pronouncing—

like MicMunough—the name oi the
ancient kings of Leinater, oi whom

Bo awe-inspiring was the sight that
many of the crowd below walked

Only tht Qulok Wit of tht Canadian-
Polio* Intpteter Kept • Notorious
Criminil In Custody When In Rtalty
Ht Wat it Fret it th* Air.
The manner In which a prisoner extradited to England from a foreign-
country Is treated while on the voyage
home depends very much on the detective who haa him ln charge and)
also on whether or no tbere la any
suspicion tbat he may be contemplating violence either to himself or to
others. *
For Instance, in tbe case of Jabej
Bnlfnttr, who waa taken to England all
tbe way from Buenos Aires, thero
waa a strong suspicion—probably lit
founded—tbat be contemplated committing suicide. Consequently Inspector Freest who had him ln charge, decided to take no rlski that he could*
possibly avoid.
Tbe regulations do not permit of an
unconvicted prisoner being handcuffed
on board sblp once tbe vessel hns left
port, and he must be allowed one-
hour's exercise on deck eacb day.
These Indulgences, if indulgences tbey
may be called, were therefore not
withheld from Balfour.
Rut he got few others. For twenty-
three hours out of every twenty-four
he was Immured In a locked cabin. He
waa not permitted even to enter the
public dining room, bis meals being
brought to him by Mr. Froest himself
after the rest of tbe passengers had
fed. He was, besides, constantly
watched and was subjected to a most
rigorous search immediately on coming aboard.
His only relaxation was an occasional game of chest wltb tome of tbe
passengers who kindly came to bla
cabin to play with bim by periajpslon
and In the presence of bis keeper.
This ten Imprisonment lasted exactly
one month and a day, and Balfonr
afterward declared that It was the
most trying experience of a captivity
that was destined to continue for
nearly twelve years.
One of lhe longest and tn Its Inter
Itaget one off the pleasantest voyage*
ever undertaken by an nnconvlcted
criminal was that which Charles Hyl-
ton Davidson, tbe notorious forger,
made tome yeara back In tbe custody
of Chief Inspector Murray of the Canadian department of justice.
Murray tracked the wanted man to-
Mexico and secured his extradition to
Canada. But tben hit difficulties began. He could not bring hli prisoner
to Cinadn by tbe direct route through
the United States, for immediately
Davidson set foot in that country he
could bave demanded to be released.
There was therefore nothing for It bur
to convey bim by way of Jamaica ant
England and thence baek across tbe
Atlantic to Quebec.
On the voyage Murray kept David-
ton nnder close observation, although
allowing bim considerably more freedom than- Froest allowed Balfour.
When, bowever, be had got safely aa
far at London be wai both mortified
aud astonished at tbe likelihood of bla
having bad all bla trouble for nothing
The law waa, he wat told, thit a
prisoner extradited from a foreign
country to a British colony could not
be kept ln custody In Englind for
longer tban twenty-four hours, nor
could he be taken aa ■ prisoner bn
board a British thlp sailing from a
British port
Bere was a dilemma. Davidson watt
free as air—had he only known tt.
Bnt Murray waa equal to the occasion.
"Look here. Davidson." be said. "I've
got yon safe. Tbere It only the laat
atage of the Journey to complete. If
I allow yuu to travel saloon wltb me
ai an ordinary tSrtt diss passenger
will yon give me yonr word to play

To this propoaltlon Davidson, knowing nothing of the real tlate of affairs,
was naturally quite ready to agree.
And to It came lo pan that one of tbe
moat notorious criminals Canidi bis
ever known came borne In state; free,
yet not free, a voluntary prisoner, and
yet in involuntary one.—Peanon'e
A Wet Harvest Relic.
A curious token has been found at
Barton, Inscribed "Tunstead and
Happing, 1812. One Halfpenny. Payable at the Corporation House." This
was the year ol the wet harvest in
England, the worst ever known. It
rained incessantly all September,
October and during most of November, and November 29 farmers were
carting barley, a sharp wind frost
prevailing. Wheat wat 63 shillings a

In Dread
of Piles
Many Btlitvt That Nothing Short of
tht Surgton't Knift Will Effect
Cure.   They Do Not Know
Dr. Chase's Ointment
The agony caused by the intense
itching, the depressing and debilitating effect on the system, the dread
lest a surgical operation might be
necessary—these are the things which
make piles or hemorrhoids so distressing.
Thc doctors have been recommending surgical operations ns the only
cure. But the surgical operation With
all its dangers and expanse and pain,
does not usually effect a lasting cure.
Many n case has li en cured hy Dr.
Chase's Ointment niter the surgical
operation had failed. Here is a cuse
whicli doctors gave up.
Mr. J. Mawer, Rnden, Man., writes:
"Dr. Chase's Ointment is a wonderful
prepurntion. 1 had itching piles for
over six years, and though I ttied
two doctors' prescriptions and usetl
many other preparations, could not
obtain much benefit. The doctor told
mc there wits no cure for me, and thnt
I would have to undergo an operation.
"I bought a box of Dr. Chase's
Ointment nnd was completely cured
in one week. Aa this was six months
ago and there has been no return of
the old trouble, I believe that the
cure is a permanent one."
One thing certain, Dr. Chase's Ointment will bring you relief from the
dreadful itching and burning almost
as soon as applied.
To mnke the cure thorough and lasting it is only necessary for you to
keep up the treatment regulnrly nnd
persistently. Don't be satisfied with
relief. Dr. Chase's Ointment will
cure completely if you will do your
part. 60 cents a hox, at all dealers,

How tht Big Man Btfritndtd a Can*
dim Boy In Botton.
The late Hon. Duncan Cameron
Fraser, Lieutenant-Governor of Nova
Scotia, aud formerly member lor Guys-
boro' in the House of Commons, who
died recently, was the hero of many
stories which had gathered around
his name and hia picturesque person
ality iu the courae of his lengthy and
varied career aa lawyer, judge and
politician. A giant in stature, stun.I
ing well over aix feet in height and
broad in proportion, he had a heart
«nd soul which matched his herculean I
frame. He was a Scot of the Scot,
filled alike with the pride of race and
the gift o' the gab, and his oratory
was in equally great demand at Liberal campaign meetings and banquet*
of the St. Andrew's Society and the
Sons of Scotland.
One of the best talcs concerning
him had its locale at a political meet,
ing in his native province. The fu
ture Lieutenant-Governor was striking
the sentimental chord, and was dibit
ing on his boyhood days to an audience largely composed ot his fellow-
"Gentlemen," he said, "I do not
know whether you will believe me or
not, but it ia nevertheless a fact that
at school I was only punished once
by the teacher—and that waa for tell
ing the truth."
"Wesly, Tuncan," came the quick
retort in the high-pitched tones ol an
aged and shrewd Heelan' mon, "it
cured ye a' richt."
Another anecdote which showed th.'
Innate kindliness and generosity ol
Mr. Fraser concealed under a bluff
exterior was contributed several year-
ago by a Toronto newspaperman to
the annual program issued by the Toronto Press Club. Under the caption.
"A Nova Scotia Angel in Disguise.'
the story runs:
In the days before telephones were
in use in the United States to the ex
tent that they are now, a Canadian
newspaperman was stranded in tlie
good old, city of Boston. After several
days of '.he strenuous life without the
wherewithal to support his strenuos
ity, he managed to get same space
work on the old Journal. He "mad.
good" in a fashion, and was congrnt
ulating himself that the days of pari.
benches for sleeping places and a
tightening of his waist band for tneni.
were over. But the first night, or
rather early in the morning, the city
editor called him across to his desk
and said:
"Take a herdic and go out to Brook
line, call on Mr. Blank at such and
Jbch an addresa, and ask him whethe-
it ia true that his wife haa left his
house and entered action lor divorce
Don't come back without the stor.
and bring the photos of the principals
with you."
The Canadian, who had not lost all
sense of decency, and who still retained hia belief that a newspaperman
might be a gentleman and that beini
a reporter was not synonymous with
being a cad, felt his breath come in
jasps at the very idea. He was about
to protest, when the city editor wa.-
callcd to the chief's sanctum, and the
chance woe lost. He bad to go at the
assignment, or quit.
It was a difficult choice. A man
with an empty pocket haa sometime*
to pocket his pride in lieu of some
thing else wherewith to Ull it, an.I
hunger won the day. Accordingly the
Canadian started out. He went ova'
to tho Tremont House in acarch of 'i
herdic, and was feeling just about at
miserable as any self-respecting nun
could, when he was hailed by a checrv
voice of Gaelic accent: "Hullo, whet
are you doing here?" The Good Sa
maritan (for such he proved to bei
waa a burly Nova Scotian politician,
well known all over the Dominion for |
the strength of his voice, ond no*

Tho reporter told his story—how he
hnd outrun the constable, how he Ind
been stranded, and finally the dis
agreeable assignment which he hail

"Come here, youngster," aaid the
Nova Scotian, and he took Ihe Ind by
thc arm. "You am not going to Brook
lino to-ni?ht or any other night on
such a mission Vou are going to sleep
right in this hotel, and you arc goiue
to have a good supper. Leave it to
me to attend to that city editor."

FRIDAY,   JANUARY   20, 1911
Telephone Talk, a new monthly
magazine, has mude its appearance
from the offices of the British Columbia Telephone company at Vancouver.
It is rather technical, yet of a character to'cnnitnend it to general interest
as well as to the attention of every
telephone employee. The initial January issue has for a eoverplate a picture of the operating room in the
Vancouver general exchange, whil
on an inside page a reproduction of
the first central switchboard in that
city in 18S7 gives ample testimony of
the growth mude during the years of
the company's existence. ArticleR in
the magazine deal with such subjects
as "The Work of the Late Dr. J. M.
Lefovie," "The Development of the
British Columbia Telepone Company,"
"Selling Telephone Service," and
"Lessons in Telephone Life," aa well
aa a number uf other interesting features, attractive both to the departmental employees and to the general
public. A line half-tone portrait of
the late Dr. Lcfevre, who did so much
to develop the field of the British Columbia Telephone company and build
up ita service, appears as a frontispiece.

act of keeping up with the procession at the rink is but child's play,
and be finds it tliilicult lo keep bis

Heroes and Heroes
We never hear anything about a
Carnegie hero medal  in connection
with the editor of a wayside  weekly
when the  thermometer is hopstep-
ping ahout the 40-below-zero mark.
The   country   editor who has  tbe
courage to get out his  paper  when
the front door of the office faces the
north pole and the wind whistles a
doleful dirge through  the cracks, is
a hero whose valor is still unsung.
The fellow who pulls a mean, selfish'
two by-four critter out of six feet of
ocean foam when the tide comes in
and   then  applies to Andrew for a
medal ougbt to be forced to go to the
cold, icy   sanctum of the   humble
editor and tbere learn tbe rudiments
of rough-necked, everyday heroism.
Tbere is something to this thing of
picking up a lot odds and ends from
1 a   case  of body type and make a
string   of   news   out   of   wben tbe
thumb and index linger feel and act
like two who had been  friends but
were   now seeking opposite roads.
There is no get-together spirit tbere,
brother,  and you   know it.   Peary
really   thought   he did something
when he accidentally ran Across the
north pole; but the printer who bas
set up a marriage notice aud   a sale
bill   to   the   tune of tlie whistling
north wind knows better than tbat.
An  editor   thawing out a galley of
type over a suckling fire and playing
his fingers over tbe dope to see bow
near it is coming apart   has oppor-
tnuity   of   discovering    something
more crisp than tbe imaginary  pole
of   tbe   far   north.    Yet he  never
misses an issue,   The water may be
frozen   where hangs the proverbial
office towel; tbe  sponge may be in
shape to be used for a rock  crusher;
the floor may be converted   into  a
skating rink; the old stove may be
as cold   as  a  Boston   girl, and the
shop   as   uninviting as   a summer
cottage when the harvest   days ure
over.   And yet the   country   editor
moves   and   bas   his being in the
midst   of   this frozen hell without
missing   an   issue.    What   do you
know about   that, anyway?   Don't
you   feel   as   if old Andy ought to
pick out   his heroes  with a   bit of
better judgment?   Of course.   The
editor  speaks   from experience, al
though working in steam heat these
days.    We have been  through   tha
dark regions with printers of frostbitten shops, and know bow it goes

Taxing Improvements
One of the questions submitted to
the voters at the forthcoming munic
ipal is as to the desirability of relieving improvements on real estate
from taxation. We are strongly of
the opinion that the question ought
to be answered in the affirmative.
It is right in principle that a man
should not be taxed because he improves his property. When Ihe
owner of a lot buildB upon it, he

Desperate Efforts, Disheartening
Failures and Final Success.
Ectema la t skin affliction to which men
tnd women alike are subject, from the first
to the last day ot their existence. It may
occur aa a sinple tiny spot, appearing and
disappearing with each change in general
health or present only at certain seasons;
at the other extreme, the whole body may
be Involved In a torturing eruption. The
latter condition may gradually arise through
the neglect or Improper treatment of lesser
troubles or an apparently healthy skin may.
In a single day, become a mass of eczema.
But whatever the form of the affection, the
distressing itching, burning, scaling and
crusting, the serious disfigurement and the
constant dread that the eczema will become
chronic, make a speedy cure tho aim of every
sufferer. Unfortunately, such a cure is not
always readily obtained. The most skilled
physician Is often at a loss and even hospitals
are forced to discharge the patient as Incurable, Then a wide variety ot remedies are
resorted to, many perfectly harmless and
equally Ineffective, others so offensive to
every sense that, were lt not for the relief
they are supposed to afford, no person of
refinement would tolerate them for an Instant.
To such sufferers, discouraged by repeated
failures of even these heroic methods, the
.Instant relief afforded by the first bath with
Cuticura Soap and gentle application of
Cuticura Ointment is almost incredible. They
stop the itching and burning at once, make
deep possible and, tn most cases, point to
a speedy cure. So pure and sweet are Cuticura
Soap and Ointment and so free from every
substance of a disagreeable or harmful nature
that they can be used without hesitation on
the youngest infant or tenderest skin. Besides, they are most economical, a single set
being often sufficient for tbe treatment of
even the severest cases. ^
in proof of the efficacy of the Cuticura
Remedies it will be enough to quote here a
single letter, from Mrs. Edward Nennlng,
11 Lansing Block, Watertown, N.Y.: "Four
years ago I suffered with a terrible eczema,
being a mass of sores from head to feet and
for six months confined to my bed. Curing
that time I suffered continual torture from
itching and burning. After being given up
by my doctor, I waa advised to try Cuticura.
After the first bath with Cuticura Soap and
application ot Cuticura Ointment I enjoyed
the first good sleep during my entire illness.
X also used Cuticura Resolvent and the treatment wu continued for three weeks. At the
end of that time I was entirely cured and
have felt no Ul effects since. I would advise
any person suffering from any form of skin
trouble to try the Cuticura Remedies, as I
know what they did for me."
Cuticura Soap, Ointment, Resolvent and
Fills are sold by druggists everywhere. Potter

In his article on Singapore, in Harper's Magazine, W. i. Aylward givef
a picture of the varied life of the city.
He says: "It wa3 late in the afternoon
when we reached the mouth of tho
river, the hour when everybody that
is anybody is out driving on the Es- ,
planade, and every one who is not il
there, to see. Along the broad, tree-
shaded river the fascinating show
trots by, and one cannot but admire
the genius.jjf the people who made it
possible in this little peninsula for
which John Bull gave the whole island of Java to the Dutch, and where
but a generation or two ago Lord
Cavenagh found but a few pirate huts.
"Across the road, with your back to
the sea, you can easily imagine yourself at a large week-end party in England. On a broad smooth lawn which
years of exncri:m>nt coaxed to grow
in alien soil, scant-clad figures work
hard at socker, cricket and rounders.
Women in fluffy white and Paris hats
sit languidly in wicker chairs, attended by native servants who keep guard
over blond babies, while their mistresses watch the game. Through a
rich, dark curtain of heavy foliage a
pocket edition of an English cathedral peers and raises its delicate spire
against a flaming sky.
"Under the tree-shaded road, between the lawn and water, a parade ot
nations goes on—brown men, black
men, yellow men and white; Hindoo,
Malay, Japanese, and Kling, awheel or
afoot, with here and there in tho
motley, gaudily costumed throng tho
snowy garb of the helmeted master
mind. Next to him in importance aro
the Chinese men of wealth, the real
merchant princes of Singapore, who
give a fairly good idea of how a Chinese can rise if given a chance. On
the seat of the most fashionable dogcart one goes by, behind a high-stepping, docked sorrel driven by a Bengali lad in livery, with a duplicate

marriageable daughters; then a high-
caste Hindoo in his low carriage reclines on rich cushions, his crinkly
white frock and silver buttons setting
ofl magnificently his dark, bearded
face, crowned with fathoms and fathoms of soft, white-stuff in a carefully
laid turban; a skittish horse, with an
officer in the Lincoln-green uniform
of the Sherwood Foresters at the ribbons, his bull pup beside him and a
little baboon in barefooted livery sitting astern; a shabby gharry and a
Portuguese priest; a rickshaw with a

High Power Microscopy.
There has been exhibited before tho
Royal Society of London a form ol
microscope, the invention of Prof.
Gordon, by means of which enormous
magnification of un object can, it is
stated, be attained without the blemishes due to optical causes that formerly marred such images, says Harper's Weekly.
We may suppose that the enlarged
image of an object is received from a
microscope lens upon a ground-glass
focusing screen, and that then annth-
ed microscope is employed still further
to enlarge the image so formed. This
is, of course, quite feasible, but tho
grain ot the glass would be magnified
together with the image and would
vitiate the result. Prof. Gordon uses
a translucent screen oi the finest possible texture, and he causes it to be
kept in continual motion while the
object is being viewed or photographed. By this means the grain oi the
screen is eliminated and the greatly
magnified image of the object alone
seen. Specimens magnified to the extent of ten thousand diameters were
shown as proof of the ellieacy of the
method adopted-

The anniversary of the death of

her. She was one of tlie sweetest
singers that "ever poured upon the
world a flood of harmony," and
among other ol the great men of her
time who appreciated Iter at her
right value was Mendelssohn, who
said of her. "She is as great an artist as ever lived, and the greatest I
have known." For a long time she
lived in Kensington, at Clairville
Grove, in a pretty one-storied cottage,
over which grew a fine magnolia, A
critic wrote of her, after she had sung

she had not been the greatest singer

The ranch was not a large one, and
the owner und his clerk were tbe only
two persons enguged upon It except a

came very warm friends and were al

Palmer said lo bis clerk:
"You know, Harold, tbat 1 am n

Rotbwell looked at him Inquiringly,

Palmer replaced the box. and tbe two
men returned to tbe lower story. Then
Palmer opened a safe .kept on the

It back and closed tbe safe door.
"Why." asked Rotbwell, "don't yon

Rotbwell was sentenced to be buuged

Author's First Success.
Like many another young author.
Mr. W. E. Norris is attracting much
attention, began hi* literary career by
sending a story to The Cornhill Maga-
ine. The story was at once accepted,
and this success determined Mr. Norris to abandon a legal career, tor
which he was orignally intended, and
try literature. To-day he is one oi
Britain's most popular novelists.

British Were Warned by W. Brandish, a Telegraph Opsrator.
The following story of the Indian
mutiny is told in The London Daily
There has just been retired from
the service of the Postmaster-General
e servant who may be said to have
practically saved India to this country. This is W. Brendish, ielegrapb
master, the sole survivor of those
who were present in Delhi in May,
1857, and who. in the courageous discharge of his duty on the memorable
11th of that month, rendered invaluable service to the state.
It wus Mr. Brendish who, without
orders tind acting on his own responsibility, despatched the telegram
which warned the authorities of the
Punjab of the outbreak of the terrible
mutiny. "Tlie sepoys have come in
from Meerut und are burning everything," he wired. "Mr. Todd is dead, i
and, we hear, several Europeans. We
must shut up."
The futeful news was sent to Lahore by Mr. Brendish, who was then
but a youth, while the mutineers
were pursuing their work of slaughter in every part of the cantonment.
It has been acknowledged that this
presence of mind on the part of young
Brendish saved India. The story is
told by Mr. Brendish in a modest
narrative of his services on that
eventful day. The telegraph staff at
Delhi, he says, consisted of Mr. Todd,
assistant in local charge, and two
young signallers, Brendish and I'ilk-
On Sunday, the 10th of that month,
in the forenoon, the signallers at the
Meerut oflice wired that eighty men
of the 3rd Cavalry had been confined,
and were to be blown away from
guns for refusing to bite the.Enfield
cartridges only recently issued to
the troops. No further news was received, and at 4 p.m. the line with
Meerut was found to be interrupted.
On the following morning Mr. Todd
took a dak and started for Meerut, to
ascertain at what point along the road
the break had occurred. He got no
further than the bridge of boats over
J unum. for he there met the mutinous 3rd Cavalry, who killed him.
The signallers remained at their
post in the telegraph office, which
was fortunately outside the city
walls, about one mile distant from
the Kashmir Gate ond from the Flagstaff Tower. They saw a regiment of
native infantry with two guns pass
along the road from cantonments towards the city, ond learned afterwards that they had joined the 3rd
Cavalry. Later on, heavy fii-i-- was
heard in the city, and Brendish, who
was st the signalling instruments,
kept an wiring to Lahore all news
that was brought to him.
At noon he went out on the road to
see what was going on, and presently
there passed a wounded British officer, driving from the city, who called
out: "For God's sake get inside and
close the, doors.
"We did so," says Mr. Brendish.
"but even then Rilkington and I did
not feel we were secure, as we were
nut two lads encumbered with the
wife and child of Mr. Todd, whose
sad end was not yet known to us, and
surrounded by servants who perhaps
were prepsred to take our lives, hut
who were doubtful as to the termination of events."
For two hours more the bovs held
on, listening to the firing within the
walls. At 2 p.m. Brendish went to
the Umballa instrument for the last
time and signalled to the hands at
the other end of the wire the historic
message, ending "and now I am off,"
the meaning being that they were
leaving the office.
He and his comrade had persuaded
Mrs. Todd to accompany them to the
Flagstaff Tower, where a number of
Europeans had already congregated,
as it was the only possible place nf
safety. They remained there until
sunset, and witnessed the blowing up
of the magazine. That night the refugees fled, and the two signallers
eventually got safe to Umballa,
A Latham Incident.
An Italian paper has a good story
of Latham, whose accomplishments in
elude prowess with the gun. The
aviator made a long stay in Abyssinia,
and indulged in big-game shooting
One day he brought down two ele
phants, malo and female. The law of
Abyssinia required Latham to pay for
his authorization two of the tusks. H?
sent those of the female, the smaiiei
ones. The authorities demanded the
larger, but the aviator flatly refused.
Then began Fort Chabrol anew. La-
tham barricaded himself in his house,
which the soldiery surrounded. Ht
was well armed and well provisioned
Tlie siege lasted a month, and it was
brought to an end by Menelik learning of the incident. The Negus ordered the forces to retire, and returned
the trophies to the heir-at-law of Nim-
rod and Icarus,

Ths New Stamps.
The new British stamps are to be
ready in May. The colors are to be
practically the same as those during
the last reign; but the design will be
different. They will, of course, be
submitted to the King for approval before being finally passed for circulation, and as His Majesty is a great
authority in philately, he will doubtless take great interest in the matter,
and give it very careful consideration.

The Breathoablo Heineily for Catarrh.
The rational way to Combat catarrh
is the Hyomei way, viz, by breathing.
Scientists for yeara have been agreed
on this point, but failed to get an antiseptic strong enough to kill catarrh
germs and not destroy the tissues of
the membrane nt the same time, until tho discovery of Hyomei (pronounced High-o-me.)
Hyomei is the most powerful yet
healing antiseptic known. Breathe it
through the inhaler over the inflamed
and germ-ridden membrane four or
Ave times a day, ami in a few days the
germs will disappear.
A complete Hyomei outfit, including the inhaler, costs $1.00, and extra
bottles, if afterwards needed, cost but
50 cent. Obtainable from your druggist or postpaid from the K. T. Booth
Co., Ltd., Fort Erie, Out. Hyomei
