A Orazy Hindu in the Oity
Jail Makes Savage Attack
on Constable McDougail
Provincial Constable McDougail
was severely slashed with a jack knife
in the bands of Punjab Singb, a
crazy Hindu, in the oity'jail on
Monday afternoon.
Singh had been confined in the
city jail since last Friday awaiting a
medical examination aa to bis mental condition. As it wu a provincial case, the constable decided to
transfer tbe prisoner to tbe provincial jail,and entered tbe cell witb tbat
object in view. He had no sooner
closed tbe door than the, Hindu
jumped on bim' and commenced
slashing bim in the neck and on the
shoulders. McDeugall was taken
by surprise, and before be recovered
bis presence of mind he had been
stabbed in seven or eight places, tbe
Hindu having hoth blades of the
knife open and working his hand
with lightning rapidity. As soon
as be realized tbe true state of affairs, be caught Singb by the tbroat
and called for assistance. Chief Savage and Mr. Quinlivan happened
to be in the fire station, near by,
and tha tbree men - soon bad the
dusky warrior overpowered.
Luckily for tbe constable, none of
the knife thrusts were very deep,
although one of tbe wounds required five stitcbes. Tbougb pain
ful, the wounds are not considered
dangerous, and Mr. MoDougall resumed bis usual duties tbe day after his thrilling encounter witb tbe
It ie a mystery wbere Punjab obtained tbe knife, as be bad previously been searched for weapons.
It is surmised, however, tbat it was
smuggled into tbe jail by some of
his fellow countrymen.
The doctors on Tuesday examined
Singh as to bis mental condition,
and decided tbat he is orazy enough
to be eenUo the New Westminster
asylum, and he will be taken to
that institution next week by the
constable he attempted to kill.
Singh bu been working in tbis
district for a number of years, and
is lhe possessor of a bank account.
Besides being Crazy, be is also an
opium fiend.
$160,000,000 must bave been realized in recent months in the sale of
municipal securities alone. It is
further estimated tbat exports of
grain beld at ths head of the Great
Lakes through tbe winter baa loosened up funds for the Canadian
banks to tbe extent of $100,000,000.
Tbs tide of immigration has been
flotfing strongly, and it is beld to
be a conservative estimate tbat the
incoming settlers ha.io brought with
tbem at least $50,000,000.
The Sun Was Right
Stetson's *'Uncle Tom's Cabin"
company gave the worst presentation of that play in tbe opera bouse
on Monday night ever seen on any
stage. It was simply horse-play
from ttie time tbe curtain rose until
it was rung down on the last act,
and some of tbe specialties and
"gags" were absolutely vulgar.
Managers wbo book such trash do
not deserve tbe confidence of theater
goers, and newspaper writers gulity
of boosting for such barnstormers
should engage in some calling that
does require judgment.and in wbicb
tbey would bave no opportunity of
misleading tbe public. The Sun
last week told the people what to expect, but it seems thai about fifty of
them paid no heed to our warning,
and investigated for themselves,
to tbeir subsequent sorrow.
Woodmen's Pfcnfc
The Woodmen's pionic at Lynch
oreek on .Wednesday was taken advantage of by the people of the city
as an opportunity to spend the day
in the shady glens of the forest
primeval. Two trains, one in the
morning and another at noon, car
ried the people up tbe river. Tbe
crowd returned to the city at about
9.30 in the evening.
At tbe crick daneing and athletic
sports furnished amusement for tbe
risining generation, while tbe more
sedate citizens contented themselves
by indulging in Isaak Walton's favorite pastime. Some phenomenal
catches are reported. Mike Tompkins says be caught a trout
tbat only lacked two feet of being
two inches long.
Louis Johnson, owner of tbe
Union mine, iu Franklin oiiiip,
this week let a contract to Peter
Hansen and Peter Peterson to have
four carloads of ore hauled from
tbe property to Lynch Creek. From
Jhat place it will lis shipped to. the
Trail smelter. Messrs. Hansen and
Peterson will commence hauling the
ore in a few days. The ship
ment will be made in tbe nature of
an experiment to demonstrate tbe
quality of thn ore. If it proves successful,, it is quite likely that further
shipments will be made.
The Union is a silver gold proposition, and adjoins tbe Maple Leaf
property. The ore is said to assay
192 ounces in silver and $32 in gold
to the ton. Tbere is a twenty-font
vein of this ore on tbe -property.
Tbe ore will be sacked before it is
Much Money Comes to Canada
The Montreal Gazette says tbe estimate has been msde by a financial
authority tbat possibly close to
$300,000,000 ban come into Canada
in the last few months tbrough sales
of municipal securities, through exports of grain, and through immigration, and that, despite the talk of
continued stringency, tbe Canadian
situation must have been relieved to
that extent since the pinch began
to be felt. The $300,000,000
estimate, however, does not include
s.ile of Canadian securities other
than those of municipalities. Canadian Pacific railway, through its
uew stock issue, is bringing in close
to $100,000,000 of outside money,
and, despite the tight money market, good sized blocks of railway and
industrial securities have been die-
posed of abroad in the first half of
the yean.
Bankers estimate that close to

Copper company is spending $20,-
000 monthly to carry on extraordinary development at propetties

from Esperanz-i, Sonora, Mexico,
last Saturday, stating that W. S.
Murray had died tbere suddenly on
June 24. Deceased was about 48
years of age, and a native of Petrolia,
Ont. The letter stated that

down, and in a few minutes he had
expired. He was buriied on his
ranch at Esperanza.
Mr. Murray was a pirmeer nf
Grand Forks. Up till ahout five
years ago be was part owner nf tbe
Murray-Coryell ranch, west of tbe
city. Then he disposed nf that
property, and visited his old home
in Petrolia. After a six months'stay

Granby's Output
During tbe period from January
1 tn July 7 of the current yesr the
Granhy smelter in this city treated a
total of 648,853 tons of ore, of
which amount 642,203 tons were
from the Granby mines and 6205
tons from other properties. During
the same period Granbv has made
and shipped a total of 11,273,697
pounds ot blister copper.
A largely attended meeting of
the Grand Forks board of trade was
held in the city ball on Wednesday
A letter was read from tbe Spokane chamber ot commerce, tendering tbe board free space for tbe display of tbe products of tbe district
in tbat city. The offer was favorably considered, and a permanent
exhibit will likely be senl to tbat
city later in the season.
A letter from Calgary informed
tbe board tbat it had been awarded
a cash prize of #160 and a diploma
as winner of tbe second prize in tbe'
district display class at the recent
fair. The money and diploma had
been forwarded to this city.
A letter was received from tbe industrial department of tbe Canadian
Pacific railway from n parly in the
Btatet, enquiring concerning tbe opportunities of establishing a vegetable cannery here. Tbe secretary
was instructed to gather data on tbis
subject and to communicate with
the party direct.
A resolution, wbich had been
drafted by a committee, urging tbe
provincial ^government to enforce
the laws against tbe aliens owning
land in this province, was favorably
considered and approved by the
board. It was decided to request
tbe Associated Boards of Trade to

R. M. Winslow. provincial horticulturist, addressed the board tor
half an bour, reviewing the fruit
growing industry. Mr. Winslow
emphasized the fact that, in order to
attain the highest-measure of success, it was necessary for the ranch-,
er to engage in mixed farming, and
not to specialize in any particular
branch. He pointed out that the
opportunities for engaging in profitable dairying and stock raising were
as good in this district as on the
coast. Every rancher should own
a herd of cattle. He was surprised
to see so lew of tbem in the valley.
After the disposal of a good deal
of routine business, tue board adjourned.

Locking up the Tower of London
Strange to eay, very few people
arc aware of an ancient custom which
is etlll kept up at the Tower ot London. Just before midnight a beet-
rater and lhe chief yeoman porter secure (lie keys from the governor's
house to 'lock up.' Having received
lhe keys they proceed to tbe guard
room.  , <,
R-tfort for the keyBl calls otit the
porter, and a sergeant and six privities turn out.
The procession Mien marches off,
aud the sentries they pass issue the
usual challoiige of 'Who goes there?'
to which the answer Is 'Keys.'
Arriving at the entrance to the
Tower grounds, the Lion's Gate, the
porter locks the gate, and the parly
return's to the guard room, the sentry
•■hallenglng as before and receiving
the same answer. However, on arriving at the guard room again, the
sentry stationed there stamps his
foot, at the same time giving (he usual challenge.
Keys, replies lhe porter.
Whose keys? lbe sentry asks.
King George's keys.
Advance ICInc George's keys, and
all's well.
The porter then says: God bless
King George, and all present respond
with 'Amen.' The keys arc then
saluted, and returned to the governor's house, where they remain until
ths next night's ceremony'.

.... Tblngs Forbidden In War
It is not generally realised that the
game of war is hedged round by as
many restrictions as a boxing, contest under Queensberry rules. These
regulations, which are under the sanction of all the Civilized countries ol
the world, are designed to ensure fair
play for the combatants.
When it is intended to bombard a
place', due notice should be given, so
that all women and children may be
removed to a place of safety; and
every care must be taken to spare
churches and hospitals, as well as all
charitable or educational buildings.
All chaplains, doctors, and nurses
are protected in every possible way,
and are not to be taken prisoners or
in any way injured.
Any soldier robbing or mutilating
an enemy is liable to be shot without
trial; and death Is the penalty for
wounding or killing a disabled man.
The bodies of the enemy are to be
carefully searched hefore burial, and
any articles found on ihem which
might lead to their ldcntil.ei.tlon are
lo be sent to their proper quarters.
.explosive bullets must not be used,
and quarter must be given to the
enemy whether he asks for tt or not.
In an attack on the enemy there must
be no concealment of the distinctive,
signs of tbe regiments; aud the use
of poisons for polluting drinking water is strictly forbidden.
Her Mother's Friend
When the new minister, a handsome
and unmarried man, made his first
pastoral visit at the Fosdlck's he took
little Anna up ln his arms and tried
to kiss her.
But the child refused to be kissed.
She struggled loose and ran off Into
the next room, where her mothej was
putting a few Unletting touches to hor
adornihent before going into the drawing rotith to greet the clergyman.
Mamma, the little girl whispered,
the man In the drawing-room wanted
to kiss me. _
Well, replied mamma, why didn't
you let him?     I would If 1 was you.
Thereupon Anna ran back into the
drawing-room and the minister asked
Well, Utile lady, won't you kiss me
now ?
No, I won't, replied Anna promptly,
but mamma says she will.

Reason for It
At a debating society some lime ago
the Irish question was discussed. An
English doctor was sustaining an argu
ment that the Irish were naturally a
race with right sentiments, but poorly
developed. At Liverpool, he said,
he had three hundred Irish patients
on his books, and of these oui/ thirty
paid him for attendance.
Son-, said the Irishman, who rose
with Hushed cheek to defend his countrymen—Sorr, there is never an effect
without a cause. There is never a
phenomenon that does not admit ot
an explanation. Now can we explain

the doctor has called our attention?

What Germany Is Doing to Ott Supremacy of Air
Dreadnoughts of the air will play as
great a part ln deciding the Issue ot
the next war as the Dreadonughts of
the sea; and It ls because they wish
to impress this fact on the mind of
the man In the street that certain people have been so loud in their denunciation ot the War Offlve for paying
$90,000 for an airship throe years ago,
and afterwards making no praotlcal
uae of it. We may have a fleet of
aeroplanes, they say, but we must also
compete wf h France and Germany in
the matter ot airships, and judging
from the extraordinary efforts which
Germany Is making at the present
time to perfect her fleet of airships, it
Is obvious that she considers they are
as essential as war vessel.) for the
maintenance, of her power.
In thp matter ot airships, Germany
at the present time easily stands first
in the world. They possess twenty-
five dirigibles of the rigid type, and
by the end of the present year will
have thirty-two. And It is significant that the Zeppelin Company; which
now turns out an airship every three
weeks hopes to be in a position at the
end ot six months tc double this output.
Germany pins her faith to ths rigid
type of airship, and considers it by
far the best tor war purposes. So
convinced are they of this that when
we tried to buy a rigid airship some
time ago the German Government vetoed the order, although they altowed
us to purchase a Parsival, a non rigid
Some facts regarding the capabilities of German air Dreadnoughts given by. the expert already mentioned
provide an Illustration of their dead-
llness in time of war. ' Before an airship Is sccepted by the German Gov
ernment It murt have done a trial trip
of a continuous 1,600 miles at a speed
of fifty miles an hour. As a matter of
fact, eighteen vessels now in commission have a range of 2,000 miles.
They can carry six tons of explosives,
and at the present time are practising
with apparatus■ whicli can direct
bombs of dynamite weighing half a
ton apiece. Which means to say that
a couple ot these air Dreadnoughts
could utterly destroy a town or army,
unless they were first destroyed. In
addition to explosives, however, each
dirigible c.rrles heavy quick firing
Hangars capable of holding the
largest air vessels are being constructed. The late types of hangars are
built on turn-tables, so that there Is
no difficulty in docking, or taking the
airship out on a strong wind. The
latest type at present being constructed ln Heligoland Is suoh a .turn-table
hangar which sinks Into a pit, so that
Its heavily-armored roof is flush with
the ground. In addition all over
Germany there are erected iron towers
as snehorares.
These towers are built with revolving tons, to tbat the airships can ride
ln softly, no matter how th** wind
changes. The towers are built close
to hydrogen stations.
It is Interesting to note that one
Such tower Is built on the Austrian
frontier, two on the Russian, three on

Yes, said the optician, I can.' Send

are ready. You know who I' am,

Disord.rj of the Blood are Cored
by Dr. Williams'Pink PilU.
If people would realize the Import
ance of keeping the blood rich and
pure there would be less sickness.
The blood Is the medium through
which thc nourishment gained from
the food' reaches the different parts
cf the' body. It the blood is Impure the nourishment that reaches
nerves, bone and muscle Is tainted,
with poison and disease follows. The
blood is also the medium by which
the body fights oft disease. If the
blood Is thin and watery this power
of resistance to disease ls weakened.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People build up the Hood. They Increase the ability of the body to resist disease. Th.y strengthen thc
nerves, increase the appetite and cure
every disease caused by thin and Impure blood, and that embraces such
diseases as anaemia, iudlgestlo:., neuralgia, nerve exhaustion, rheumatism,
and many others. Every claim made
tor this medicine ls amply proved by
the grateful testimony of those who
bave been cured. Here Is one instance. Mr. Jai. Sauger, Peterboro,
Ont., says: "I began to be troubled
with dizzy spells. These were especially noticeable In the morning on
rising and were accompanied by-
feeling as if my body had taken on
two or three times its weight during
the night. When I went out ot
doors everything would suddenly seem
to get topsy-turvy for a few moments,
and i would apparently see specks
flouting lu front of me, and for a
while 1 could hardly drag myself
.along. This feeling at lirst only
lasted for a few minutes but as time
went on- the duration of the spells
soomed to increase. Whilst during
the day I would be suddenly attacked
with dizziness compelling me to hold
on to something until the feeling
passed. I had in the meantime been
taking various blood tonics, as I
was convinced my condition was due
to my blojd being out ot order.
None of these, however, seemed to
have any permanent effect. For .1
little while I would be fairly well,
but as soon aB I quit using them the
attacks used to come back with renewed vigor. One day I cume across
au advert'sement ot Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and decided to try them.
1 soon noticed a moro t'.eclded Im-
pmvement than I had felt before. ThcJ
dizzy spells were becoming less frequent and less violent, and by the
time 1 had taken six h.ixcs I was well
again. From formrr experience I
had some fiat's that the trouble might
return, but low, four months after
discontinuing the use of tbe pills. I
have had no return of the trouble.
.In fact I never felt better than I do
now. and I think nothing can equal
the PIUs as a blood medlcln.."

Birch and Beech for Flooring-
Birch and beech, on account ot
their cheapness, are becoming more
and more popular as tho supply of
oak and maple decreases. This
statement, taken from a bulletin sooa
t. bo issued by the Forestry BraJch,
Department it the Interior, Ollawa,
on the Wood-Using Industries ot Ontario, Is based on reports received
from over twelve hundred firms, and
la therefore worthy of consideration.
The average wholesale price p_r
thousand feet, board measure, given
in the above bulletin for maple and
oak flooring is twei-ty'two dollars and
eighty two cents and flfty five dollars
and seventy'elght cents respectively. The a.erage price for birch antl
beech flooring, on the othe- hand, ii
nineteen dollars and sett-nty one
c .-.its and twenty one collars and seventy four cents respectively, which represents quite a savinc, especially
when compared with oa'. .
But these woods have other qualities to recommend them besides
cheapness. Twenty two per cent ot
the flooring manufactured ln Ontario
la made from the wood of the black
a..d the yellow birch, the more com-
{mop white or paper birch not usually
growing to a sufficient size tor this
purpose. Birch is a hard, strong,
fine-grained, reddish-brown wood,
which take- a blah polish and, therefor, Is very liltable for flooring. It
can be ttained to Imitate more expensive woods, such aa mahogany, cherry or walnut, and, being easily worked, lt Is also extensively used for furniture aftd Interior decoration.
Beech Is one of Ontario's cheapest
hardwo.Hls, the ordinary grades jf
lumber costing only thirteen dollars
and sixty one cents pe thousand feet,
board measuro. It frequently constitutes one tenth to one third of tht
cheaper grades of birch flooring, but
its qualitcs justify its separata use,
for it ls strong, fine-grained and so
hard that it become; quite slippery In
time. It Is also used for furniture
to some extent.
Of the birch and beech used In Ontario, ninety per cent of the former
and ninety eight per cent ol the latter are home grown. The existing
supplies of these woods I.*. Ontario
are sufficient to meet a much greater
demand, and as oak and maple ars
growing Increasingly, dear, it Is certain that the use ot bircli and beech
especially for flooring will soon become much more widespread.

above can be obtained fro.i the Forestry Branch, Ottawa.

A Conservative government at Ottawa and a Democratic adminictra
tion at Washington appears to be an
uncongenial combination for the
money market on this continent.
The Doukhobors want »500,000
from the Ottawa government for improving land in Saskatchewan which
they were unable to hold because of
their refusal to become Canadian
..citizens. • We fail to see where they
have anv daim on the government.
People who can not become citizens
and conform to the laws of the land
they expect to make the r permanent home are of no use to any
cessive caution the whole globe be-
°omes financially, depressed. That is
what ails Canada. British money is
not flowing as freely in this direction
as we would wish, and the result is a
financial stringency throughout the
Dominion. And yet Mr. Burden proposes that Canada shall made a contribution of $3.5,000,000 to help the
old country old. Even that sum
would have to be fort-owed in England. Canada needs that money a
thousand times more than Great
Britain dues. The contribution might
oome the other way.—Victoria Times,

Great Bird of New Zealand Twelve
Feet High
A gigantic extinct bird of New Zealand (-the 1110a) possessed the most
massive bones of the entire class of
birds. The bones is* its feet almost
rivalled those of tho ground sloth or
the elephant ln size. In the museum
li Canterbury College, Chrlstci.urch,
New Zealand, there are two specimens ot the moa which measure 12
feet 3 Inches ln height, such remains
having been found ln the peat bogs of
New Zealand In tht> seaside Sand
dunos and cases were preserved the
ligaments lioldl.._; the bones pt skeletons together, also piece 1 of dried
skin aud feathers, etc, The moa ls
more nuarly a.lied ln structure to
emus, cassowaries and klvil.i than to
thc ostrich. -It closely lesembles
the kiwis except fot- Its short beak,
and for having atlershafts after Its
feathers.        ,
For a long time It was hoped that
In somo ot the backward mountainous regions of New Zealand some living specimen of the moa might be
found. But the expedition of an
Australian naturalist, Herr Rels-
ckek, in 1877-8 tor this object, was
fruitless, so .hat the question ot the
nioa's extinction was considered finally settled, and lt Is believed to have
occurred a little over SOO years ago.
The fact that it was flightless—not
having a trace of rudimentary yvlngs
—no doubt contributed largely to render lt an easy prey to its natural enemies, Including man, and thus to
lead to its early extinction.

certain country squire of middle age, ,
ol healthy active habits, with no hereditary history of any neuritis, who '
came to London to consult his solicitor on a certain Tuesday morning.
Th.. lawyer asked bim to call again
at three o'clock. He did not return,
but finding himself near his lawyer's
office some dsys later about hall-past
three, he went there, believing the
day still Tuesday and that he was only
hall an hour late as a result ol hi*
watch having stopped. He could not
believe that the hour was half-past
three and the day Friday. He then
recognzed lhat he. had not shaved,
but he seemed to have washed, dressed and eaten regularly. He certainly
had not been drinking. He could not

had done, but it is clear that there
had been nothing abnormal in hi*

aspect, and how far the author of
crimes committed while in au abnormal state is amenable to ihe criminal
law. To what extent must Dr. Jekyll
and Mr. Hyde suffer for the misdeeds
of Mr. Hyde? This is Sir George Savage's view:—"I hsve on several occasions been ssked to defend female
kleptomaniacs on the plea ot unconsciousness, but I have generally declined although I admit it is possible
tor thieving, adroitly don; and with
apparent endeavor oi concealment, to
follow an epileptic seizure."
Another famous mental specialist,
asked his views on this point, said:—
"Serious crimes as well as petty thefts
can, ot course, be quite unconsciously committed and no memory ot what
has been done may be retained. This
was a theory in the notorious, 'Jack
the Ripper' cases."
