We cannot over emphasize-the
great need of a knowledge of market
conditions by eVtry fruit grower.
The business is an intricate one and
success in it depends on a knowledge of, and attention to many fine
points not only in growing, but iu
marketing as well.
3. The annual report just issued,
a publication of 120 pages, covers
many important points in growing
and marketing fruit; every grower
should have one. They are supplied only to members, as the num

Some members are i.viug consider
crable sums by taking advantage of
this feature of association membership.
5. This association is the only
provincial organization devoted to
the interests of the fruit growers. It
is getting continued increased support from the fruit growers because
it is getting actual results in better
transportation rates and service, in
more and better work for the. fruit
industry on the part of the Dominion and Provincial governments,
and in otber ways improving conditions surrounding the fruit grower.
One of the objects of the association is to promote the better organization of fruit growers.
Every fruit grower should make

Wants a Bonus
What kind of a deai is tbe Cana
dsau Northern railway trying to
give Armstrong aud Enderby? The
provincial government is guaranteeing the bonds of this board into tbe
Okanagan, from Kamloops to Vernon and Luuiby. The people will
stand hack of these bonds. Tbe
route had not been decided upon at
the time the government signed the
agreement with the company. Enderby and Armstrong were as good
as off the map, apparenting, when
thc railway company and the government entered into the aforesaid
agreement. Now the Candaian
Northern railway is attempting to
hold up Armsiio'ig to tie tune of
$50,000 to get the main line into
the sister town Who is getting the
rake-off? Is this the kind ol a game
the railway com pit ny is working? Is
the government going to permit ii?
Are the good people of Armstrong
lining to stand for this kind of a
hold up? Is the .McBride government bringing that kind of u niilway
company into the Okanagan—one
that will stand a mile or two outside
of a town and say: "If you want us
in, put up 150,000." Is this the
railway which we have been told is

James Petrie, of Rossland, is
working on a new system of concentration by air, doing away entirely
with \v_iter. By using air at a pressure of between tbree and- four
pounds per square inch, he is enabled to separate the values from
ores, says the Bossland Miner. The
ores of a large section between -
the Iron Horse and Columbia and
Kootenay are amenable to this
method of treatment. Owing to the
specific gravity of the values in the
ores of this section, he believes that
the air pressure method is the only
one hat can be successfully em-
yloyed. Mr. Petrie was master mechanic of the Le Roi mine six years
ago, and under the direction of J W.
A8tley,the superintendent,und The*.
Mitchell, the concentrating expert,
built the Le Roi concentrator at
a cost of $65,000. This was nothing
more, he says, than a silver-lead
concentrator. In this plant, the
values were lost in the tailings
througMhe excess of water which
was passed tbrough the mill. Mr.
Petrie says tbat a system of concentration by air is suited to the situa
tion here, owing to the faet that for
three months in tbe year water is
not available. A portion of the
vaiues in tbe form of sulphides is
very light, and is carried off with
the tailings with tbe water; on the
other hand, some of the values are
very heavy and hard to concentrate
over tables in series. The result ol
his experience justifies him in saying
tbat concentration by air is the only
practical system of treating,in ipniu
tities, the low grade ores of Rossland.
Hotel Improvements
The large three storey addition I
the Pncific hotel in the West end
has been completed, and the appearance of the house has been materially improved. The hotel is now
one of the largest in the city. The
new addition gives the house a big

A Remarkable and Convincing Statement of the Success of Cuticura
Soap and Ointment in theTreat-
ment of the Pain, Itching and
Burning of Eczema
"I, tlie uniliflra.lsn.il, cannot give, enough
praise to the Cuticura lteftiedlet. I had been
ductorlug for at least a year for eczema on
my foot. 1 had tried doctor after doctor all
lo no avail. When a young girl I sprained
my ankle three different times, paying little
or no attention to lt, when ilva yeara ago
a entail fapot showed upon my left ankle,
I was w-orrled and sent for a doctor. Ho
Mid it was eczema. He drew a small bono
trom the ankle about the size ot a match
and about an Inch long. The small hole
grew to about the size ot nn apple, and
the eczema spread to the knee. The doctors
never could heal the hole tn the ankle.
The whole foot ran water all the time.
"My husband and my sons were up night
and day wheeling me from one room to another In the hope of giving nie some relief.
1 would sit for hours at a time in front of

n fact, I would lose my reason for hours
at a time. One day a friend of mine dropped
In to see mo. No more had she glanced.at
my foot than she exclaimed, 'Mrs. Finnegan,
why In the world don't you try the Cuticura Remedies!' Being disgusted with the
doctors and their medicines, and not being
able to sleep ut all, I decided to give the
Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment a
trial. After using them three days that
night I slept as sound as a silver dollar
fnr eight long hours. I awoke In the morning
with but very little pain, tn fact. 1 thought
1 was in heaven. After using the Cuticura
Remedies for three months I was perfectly
restored to health, thanks to the Cuticura
Boap and Ointment. I will be sixty-four
rears of age my next birthday, hale and

Seem to  Have Been  Used
China Centuries Ago,
The general public has supposed
that the thumb print, system is something new that scientists have devised
(or purposes ot Identification. Such,
however, seems not to be the case,
says Popular Mechanics. Investigation has revealed the fact that the
system originated with the Chinese.
For hundreds, perhaps thousands,
ot years, the merchants ot China have
used impressions ot their thumbs ln
lieu of signatures. To this day ln the
Interior of Chine, the thumb print ls
used on legal documents, especially
wills, In place of the written name.
The use ot finger prints waB transferred from China to India, where the
British adopted the system sta a
means of identifying the native troops.
From that the custom became general ln the British ' military service,
not only In India, but throughout tbe
United Kingdom.
It-was Introduced In the police departments of Great Britain by army
officers, who returned from foreign
service to take positions in the police
headquarters. Its use has become
universal in the British Empire—so
much so that every man or woman
who has ever been ln the custody of
the police ha1! his finger prints on
file ln the department. The finger
print records of Scotland Yard are
the most complete of any ln the
world. H_H

China's Opium Tcade.

ot opium Into China constituted about
8.6 per cent, of the total Imports,

Rainfall and Consumption.
A study of the Influence of rain-
bearing winds upon the prevalence of
tuberculosis has heen made by Dr.
William Gordon, physician, to the
Koyal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
After Classifying several Devonshire
parishes according to their exposure
to rainy winds, Doctor Gordon searched out in precisely which parishes the
deaths from consumption during n
series of years had mainly occurred.
He found that the death-rate In the
parishes exposed to rain-bearing
winds was'generally twice as high aB
that of the parishes sheltered from
them. Further Investigations were
conducted in many other localities,
among them the city of Exeter. The
esult was the same. Dactor Gordon
declares that the important point to
consider Ib the matter of shelter from
the raln-bearlng winds of the locality,
exposure to which Is a more serious
matter than altitude, character of
soil, or even the amount of rainfall.

How to Gather  Fish  Worms.
Now that tho fishing mason Is at
hand a new labor-saving device for
gathering Huh worms Is timely:
'You take a broom handle three
and a half feet long, drive It Into the
spot likely to be Inhabited by angle
worms. Leave an end sticking up
about six Inches. Then take a rough
board and rijb It over the top of the
broom handle. This rubbing will
cause a vibratlon'of the earth and the
worms, angry and disturbed, will
work their way out of the ground. A
fellow can get a pall full of worms ln
a short time."

Reason for Haete.
There's an old story about an Irishman who was painting a fence and
who worked fast, so that he might get
the job finished before the paint gave
out. Our grandfather laughed at
.that Joke before our grandfathers
bought razors.
The new version came ln yesterday; the setting is up Ih date, but
lhe old point still sticks out. Our
correspondent says:
"I have a touring car and I have a
chauffeur The latter is a bright
Italian boy and an invaluable servant.
The other night, ten miles from home,
but Inside the city limits, I observed
that he was putting on a burst bt
'"Slow down a bit, Guiseppe,' I
warned him; 'we'll be arrested if we
keep up this speed.'"

And Frantic Gasping for Breath Common to Bronchitis and
Both bronchitis and asthma are diseases ot the nerves as well as ot the
bronchial tubes, and for this reason
only slight irritation or excitement la
required to bring on the terrible
coughing spells and frantic gasping
for breath.
There is nothing like Dr. Chase's
Syrup of Unseed and Turpentine to
bring relief to sufferers from bronchitis and asthma.
it soothes the Irritated nerves,
eases and prevents the attacks of
coughing a.nd enables the system to
throw off the disease. In fact the
great popularity of this medicine is
largely due to its success in curing
bronchitis ahd severe chest colds.
Since permanent recovery depends
largely on getting the nervous system thoroughly- restored, Dr. Chase's
Nerve Pood is of the greater
assistance In revitalizing the wasted
nerve cells. This combined treatment is ideal ns a cure for bronchitis
and asthma, for, while the Linseed
and Turpentine brings relief to the
organs of respiration, the Nerve Food
restores thc body to full health and
strength, and enables lt to light off

rPHE Family Herald and Weekly Slar of Montreal, acknowledged to he
£ the greatest and hest family and farm paper on the continent, has on
many occasions given its readers most delightful premium picture,
hut this season tbey have secured what is beyond nny question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper render'!. It is entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who mei t after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dng, famous for bis beauty and gentlenei-s, winners
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
has heen stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from.his collar.
His familiar hark brings bis little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted lo be "Home Again." and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting his head against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a womnn of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—tbe two glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhnod; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, ber affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of

For varicose sores, bail leg, or
chronic ulcers, Zitm-Uuk la without
equal as a healer. A proof of this ls
just to hand from Montreal. Mrs. T.
Edwards of 164 Amherat St., writes:
"Somo time ago a bad aoro broke out
on my left leg near the ankle. For
a week or two I did uot heed lt, but
lt got sn bad I could hardly walk. I
sent for our doctor, and fee told me
1 would have to lay up with the
wound. 1 did so (or thitee weeks. At
the end ot lhat tlmn tho ulcer healed
a little, but 1 could only move about
by using crutches.
"The sore then lirnke out badly,
snd tlio doctor told m.i that the only
thing that would cura It would be an
operation, and that t ahould have to
'av un Tor U ya'ar. TMb, 1 knew waa

1 did so, and in HHna. Mian a week's
time it gavo me wiwdeytul relief. It
stopped the pain, which had been so
bad that many iilghQt I did not get
a wink of sleep. In n very short time
the wound waa so much better that
1 hail no more sleepless nights, and
was also able to move about and do
my work. I persovored with Zam-

Is now perfectly cured, and the limb

Demonstration by Comparison,
Before tbe use ol chloroform had
become so general as it ls ln our day,
a quack advertised that he wouid
draw teeth painlessly. A patient was
placed in the chair, the instrument
applied to his tooth with a wrench,
followed by a groan from the unpleasantly surprised sufferer.
"Stop!" Bald the dentist. "Compose
yourself. I told you I would give you
no pain, but I only gave you that
twinge to show you Dr. Carter's operation."
Again the instrument was applied
to the tooth, and another tug, and
another roar..
"Now, don't be Impatient. That ls
Dr. Logan's method," said the dentist. -« aii   ■   ■
Another application, another tug,
another roar.
"Now, pray do be quiet. That ls
Dr. Tate's way. 1 see very well that
you do not. like it, and I am not surprised."
By this time the tooth hung by a
thread, and, whipping lt out, the operator exulting!.' exclaimed: "That's
my mode of extracting teeth. Vou are
now able to compare lt with the operations of Carter, Logan and' Tate."
In the. Spring Most People Need a
Tonic Medicine.
One of the surest signs that the
blood Is out of order ls the pimples,
unsightly eruptions and eczema that
come frequently with the change from
winter to spring. These prove that
tho long indoor life of winter has had
its affect upon the blood, and that a
tonic medicine Is needed to put il
right. Indeed there nre few people
who do not ueed a tonic at this season. Bad blood does not merely show
Itself ln disfiguring eruptions. To
this same condition is due attacks of
rheumatism and lumbago, Ihe sharp
stabbing pains of sciatica and neuralgia; poor appetite and a desire to
avoid exertion. You cannot cure
these troubles hy the uso of purgative medicines—you need a tonic, and
a tonic only, and among all medicines
there ls none can equal Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Iheir tonic, llfe-glving,
nerve-restoring powers. Every dose
of this medicine makes new. rich
blood, whicli drives out Impurities,
stimulates every organ and brings a
feeling of new health antl energy to
the weak, tired, ailing men, women
and children. If you are out of sorts
give the medicine a trial and see how
quickly it will restore the appetite, revive drooping spirits, and (111 your
veins with new, health-giving blood.
You can get these pills from nny
medicine dealer or by mail at GO

An Imperial Chicken Fancier.
II may bc interesting to owners of
chicken farms to know that a genuine enthusiast in the pastime of
poultry-raising lived and flourished as'
far back as the year 410 A. D. whon
Alarlc the Goth was busying himself
about the sack of Rome. The Rev.
Dr. George Hodges' "Saints and Heroes" Is the authority for the story.
Only the Roman emperor seemed
unmoved by this tremendous calamity. He waa in a safe retreat at Ravenna when the news came. It is remembered of Honorlus that there
were only two matters In which he
was ever known to show interest. One
was the safety of his own Imperial
person, the other was the raising of
hens, In which he was very successful. His favorite hen was named
"Your Majesty Rome has perished!"
thoy came crying.
"Why," he said, "only an hour ago
she was feeding out of my hand!"
And when they told hiin it was Ihe
capital of the world that had been
destroyed he was much relieved.

come to examine your lungs, he will
most likely tell you to say ninety-
nine, and to repeat lt several times,
while he llslens Ih'.-.e'j.lx a stethoscope to the passage of air through
your breathing apparatus.
Sometimes the number Is pronounced "ninety-and-nine," which
makes it appear more full-sounding
aud emphatic. In this form, It ts very
prominent in a famous revival hymn
which was popular some years ago,
and which ia founded on the parable
of the hundred cheep, one ot which
wandered away and got lost, while
the "nlnety-and-nlnc" remained safe
in the fold. This parable nlso shows
that ln ancient times tbe number had
a recognized place ln the every-day

A Costly Gamble.
Mr. Marshall Hall, the well-known
K. C, tells the following Btory of a
County Court action In v*ileh he took
pari: "I remember many years ago
being taken down to a County Court.
I looked at tho brief and found that
the whine amount to be sued for was
$30, while my own fee was more than
five times that sum, and I could not
make the matter out. It was an action for trespass — seizing a horse In
execution, and the sort .of horse it
was cnn be imagined—and In the end
I won. The case took the whole dny.
Then when It was all over 1 heard
that thore was a but of $2,500 depending on lhe result nf the case.. The
nartles were all horsey people, nnd
they knew Ihey would got a fair run
for Iheir money. They used mo for
tho purpose of a gamble.

Life on the Planets.
The possible existence of life on
the planets ls discussed ln the "Journal ot the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada" by Professor R. G.
Aitken of the Lick Observatory, who
summarizec the latest conclusions "of
astronomers upon this question. Professor Aitken considers that the existence of a high form of life on tho
moon, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Ura-
nas or Neptune Is extremely improbable. Although Venus greatly resembles the earth, it is generally believed
by astronomers that the day-and the
year of the planet are of equal duration. In that caso no lite can exist
upon It. Concerning Mars, Professor
Aitken says that "astronomers a/e not
agreed as to whether the much-discussed markings* are canals or merely
earthquake cracks. There are no
permanent bodies ot water on tho
planet.. The best that can bo said Is
that although tho temperature on
Mars ls very low, tliep^ may be on the
planet, to a limited extent, the conditions essenllal to life; probably only
vegetable and low-order animal life,
but no beings of intelligence."

I had stayed oway from Quince Harbor for two mouths, and, although a
■mall seaport Is a dull place Indeed
during the midwinter season, I felt a
longing to go down there ln December and see how tbe cedar clothed
bluffs looked wltb a snow; overdress,
I wanted to see the steely blue ot the
buy under gray December skies; I
wanted to hear tbe harsh cry of tht
culls ns they wheeled over the water;
1 wanted to partake of tbe delightful
dullness of Quince Harbor In winter.
Now, Captain Barnabas Flsb, my
stanch friend and fellow fisherman,
companion of many delightful excursions on and about Quince Harbor,
had written me n most mysteriously
worded letter, ln which he hinted at
bis engagement lo Miss Maria Weeks,
wilh whom I bad boarded when ln
the serport, nnd suggested tbat a conversation wilh me would enlighten
blm concerning several rather problematical social questions.
"Lord bless jou, Miss Telhnm, I was

Maria, running down tbe walk to meet

tactless question, but I was interested
In Lucy, who lived next door to tbe
Weeks' bouse.
Miss Marin.tossed ber bead ss she
arose from placing my bags on the
Boor. "So far ns I know, Lucy's all
right," sbe replied rather tartly.
"In the Inst letter you wrote to me
yon said (but Lucy Drake was to be
your bridesmaid," I observed as I removed my outdoor garments with Maria's help.
"Bridesmaid, Indeed," she sniffed
scornfully. "1 did ask ber lo be, and
glad enough sho wns to Accept, never
having been so near the altar before In
ber llfe-not that way, 1 mean-nnd I
even offered to provide the gown for
ber. pink silk with pink roses." Maria
loosened my hnlr nnd brushed vigorously at tbe tangles. "Pink silk!"she repeated. "Wbat do you tblnk of tbatr
"It would have been lovely." I murmured, "but tell me wby she refused
to act os"1-
"Sbe didn't refuse. Sbe accepted,
■nd tbe dress Is alfmnde and tbe bouquet Is ordered from Smlthrtlle. The
captain saw to all that himself."
"Tell me nbout 11. Miss Marin. I
shall never know until you do," I
"There Isn't much to loll, only Lucy
has taken full charge of my wedding
and ls bossing everything. Miss Tel-
bam, sbe actually advised the captain
to wear one of-bis old yachting uniforms and call It a marine wedding.
Sbe thought It would be something like
tbe military weddings sbe reads about
in Ihe papers."
"And what does Captain Barnabas
■ay?" I asked curlousl?-.
"I thought be was kinder tnken with
tbe Idea nt flrst, but now Lucy has
talked so much nbout It that he's tired
of it. He dou't know what lo wear
after all's said aud done. Not belug
married before and getting the experience of having hnd a wedding Is a
great drawback." She sighed ns she
led tbe way downstairs.
"It must be," 1 murmured, wondering what quostlnua the doubtful captain wished to put before me. "And
so Lucy Drufco will nol bo Ibe bridesmaid after all," 1 said, disappointed at
this outcome.
"Oh, yes, she ssys she will, nnd I
haven't got any objection so long ns
she don't trim up the church so It
looks like the bottom of the ocean. I
reckon she'd llko to bave clam shells
all up the aisle and nn orchestra of
tbose little fiddler crabs, with seaweed
dripping all around. Sbe even wnnted
tne to have my wtsillng dress trimmed
wllb dingle shells nnd seaweed."
"Lucy certainly ls romnntle," I observed soothingly. "Do let me see
your wedding gown, Miss Maria, If It
Is rcudy."
"It's all done; It's here In the sport
room." This spinster of forty-firs
years unemotionally led the way to
Iho little bedroom that opened off Iho
sitting rooth nnd prepared to show mc
her simple trousseau.
The wedding dress was'of gray silk,
pearly gray and almost stiff enough to
stand alone. It wait made simply, but
I knew It would bo becoming to Maria,
who was plump and pink cheeked,
wilb soft broyni hair aud dark eyes.
"It Is lovely," I said, kissing ih*
bride to bo on botb pink cheeks.
"Don't fret about Lacy Drake. I know
It's going to be tha loveliest wedding
you ever snwl" ■:
I'm worried abont It just tho same,
Miss Telham. I bnven't told you all
tliere Is to tt. I.ncy has been teasing
the captain to bare Orville Beers for
his best man. She's keeping company
with Orville." ..-.._,
"ls tho captain willing?" .1 **£
"Mercy, no! Orville and blm ain't
■poke for twenty years. Seems be and
the captain were both after tbe same
(Ifl In tbe daya I mean, and*Orville got
her. Of course the captain got ail over
lt, only he's always been mad at Orville because be got tbe best of him.
Orvllle's wife died last spring, and he's
been after Lucy Drake. Sbe hinted
that she'd rather have a white silk
dress because sbe could use It later for
her own wedding."
When I was alone I could not resist
a hearty laugh at tbe tbrlftincss of
Lucy Drake. She wns Maria's age,
bnt the difference in tbe two women
was marked. Maria in ber blunt, plain
way seemed to behold ber marriage to
Captain Fish as tbe start ot a new
life, a life of congenial, affectionate
companionship, with a placid happiness
that sbould last -tbem during the remainder of tbelr balf lived lives. Her
love for tbe bsndsome old captain was
sincere to tbe core. Her contempt for
tbe foolish romantic notions of Lucy
Drake wns equally sincere. I was
vexed at Lucy for Intruding her notions In the midst of Maria's quiet little
wedding preparations.
The wedding was set for Thursday
evening, and because Maria's house
was small and because everybody In
Quince Harbor would expect.to witness tbe marriage of two sucb popular
persons, It was decided to bold the ceremony In tbe church. Captain Fish
had ordered palms and white flowers
from the Smlthyllle florist to decorate
tbe church.
In the meantime Lucy Drake darted
ln and out of the bouse her thin cheeks
pink wltb excitement her straight fair
hair flying wildly nbout. She was
brimming over with a hundred suggestions to enhance the novelty of the occasion.
"You'll only be married once, Maria,"
■be urged.
"I hope so," retorted Maria loftily.
"Do as you please about your own
wedding, Lucy, but leave mine aloue,
"A double wedding would bave
been romantic," murmured Lucy regretfully.
"You nnd Orville settled It then?"
Marin's eyes seemed to be relieved. I
wondered If sbe did not harbor n small
Jealousy of Lucy Drake.
"Yes-look!" Lucy held ont n thin
scraggy band nnd displayed oa tbe
tblrd flnger of her left hand a large
amethyst ring. "It belonged to his flrst
wife," sbe murmured sentimentally.
"I'll help you get up a big wedding,
Lucy," said Maria generously.
Lucy gave ber a queer look. "Yon
can remember what you ssld afterward," she said und turning on ber
heel, walked out.
"Wbat did sbe mean?" I nsked.
Marin shrugged her plump shoulders.
"I don't know. She's ncted queer
about this wedding business from the
beginning. She told somebody that
the bad always salt she would bo married before I was and she would yet
—I can't see how she's going to manage tt."
Captain Flsb asked my advice about
the wedding garments he must wear
and I answered him frankly,'.nutting
aside Lacy Drake's suggestloti of the
"marine wedding" aud taking luto
careful consideration1 tbe time worn
customs of Quince Harbor weddings
of the past. Beyond that be made no
allusion to any doubts be mlgbt have
bad concerning Lucy Drake and her
Ideas concerning weddings In general
and Ills In particular.
Thursday was a hurriciine of wind
snd rain nnd not a soul ventured to
cross the long rond thnt led to the
west side. Maria bad no near relatives
and so I assisted her to dress for her
weddlug. lt cleared at six o'clock,
snd we heard the wheels of lhe carriage grinding through the wet sand
to the gate. The ceremony was to be
at half-past six and the reception waa
to be held uflrr tho return of tlio
captain aud his bride from their honeymoon.
"I wont over lo Lucy's, but the house
wns nil locked up, so I guess she has
gone—but I dldu't hear any carriage,"
remarked Maria as we drove to the
"Sho probably went on ahead—ah*
will bo waiting for you in tho vestibule," I said.
It was so. Lucy, gorgeous In pink
silk with ii pink tulle veil floating
above ber wisps of fair hair, wns In

vlsaged mnn, now dressed In cslretao

knowledge he was a plain fanner and

Lucy.was married first after all, and
for ber tho wedding decorations bad
I congratulated the couple wltb as

allow and heard Maria quietly following suit. Tbe people crowded back
Into the church, and Orville Beers

his place beside Captain Barnabas, t

snow crowned head os be stood there

African and Indian Species Different
In Many Things.
The chiel external differences between African and Indian elephants
are well known. The enormous ears
and forehead, with its evenly-rounded
contour, at once distinguish the African species, tbe ears in the Indian
animal being comparatively small,
while the summit of the head is
swollen and the forehead hollowed,
giving a concavo-convex lino in profile view. There are other differences
less obvious, but equally or more interesting, recorded in text-books and
elsewhere. Of theso the least known
and least frequently quoted is, says
Mr. R. L. Pocock, writing in The
Field, the curious difference observable In lhe structure of the tip of the
trunk. In the Indian elephant the
upper margin ol the orifice of this
organ is produced in the' middle into
a short but highly mobile and sensitive finger-like process, while tho lower margin has no such process, but is
decidedly tumid and muscular, especially at the sides. In picking up
small objects the finger-like process is
brought down against the middle ol
tbe inferior margin, but this margin
i. capable of only very slight upward
movement, though its power of downward movement ia "considerable.
In tho African elephant, on the contrary, the upper margin o! the orifice
of the trunk is, produced into a wide
angular flap-like lip, and the lower
margin is very similarly modified,
while the two lips are opposable to
approximately the same extent, and
constitute a highly efficient prehen-
sible organ. Now, tho upper margin
of the orifice ol the proboscis, since
it overlies the nostrils, may be compared to the extremity of the human
nose, and the lower margin, since it
underlies them, to the human upper
lip. Then the trunk of the elephant
represents, strictly speaking, not the
nose alone of other mammals, but
•the nose and upper lip combined, and,
adopting the comparison made above,
it may be said that the elephant
picks up small objects by opposing
the tip of its nose to tlie edge of the
upper lip. This power does not exiBt
in any other mammal, and it is the
possession of sucli an organ of prehension at the extremity of the trunk
of tb,e elephant, and the trunk of
such animals as tapirs and desmans
(Myogalc), in both of which the
organ, although short can be curled
like a hook round stems or other objects, being used by the desman as a
tactile probe for finding aquatio insects in crevices, and by the tapir to
pull vegetation within reach of its
But in neither of these lias the trunk
the power of prehension resident in
its tip alone, such as has been so often
described in the elephant. If nuts or
small pieces ol biscuit or bread bo
offered to these animals, they are
taken into the tip of tlie trunk between the upper and lower edges of
the- nasal orifice, and are thence
transferred straight to tho mouth. In
this respect the two species behave
alike. But if a pile of soft bran be
set before them, they act very differently. The Indian elephant makes
no use whatever of the terminal prehension organ, but curls the end ol
the lower surface of the trunk round
the heap, keeping the nostrils clear,
arid, holding it (irmly with the tumid
and muscular lower margin, lifts it
into his mouth with a somewhat lateral movement.
Tho African elephant, on tlio contrary, applies the extreme tip' of the
trunk to the food, and, grasping as
much ol it as possible between thc
upper and lower lips of the orifice,
completely blocking the nostrils,
rai.es it straight upwards and backwards into his mouth, sometimes
pausing for a moment to thrust the
bolus more firmly into his nose, by
pressing it against tho lower surface
of the trunk.
What Is a Luxury to One n.-.ce ts an
Abhorrence to Another.
In the turmoil about the co.-t ol
food thero ie one lurgiil'.cn factor,
and this i» the too* itself. There i.<
quite enough Iood in the world i! you
will kindly sit down and eat it—having caught it, cooked it, reaped it,
gathered il, or in any wey convoyed
it from'hand to mouth. Ill a word, ive
aro all wasting food through silly prejudices that prevent us Irom acquiring
a taste lor- the provender Hint is nt
hand, and separating us nt tnlilc—
three times a day—Irom our brother
man,  says a London paper. -
Take the rabbit as su Illustration,
It is a prolific breeder, and even here
we try to "keep down lli; rabbits''
as ground gnmo. But we eat him
when shot, or trapped and marketed,
thongh he is not usually aoticpted ns
a dinner dish in lho most expensive
restaurants. Now in France the rabbit is received and eaten with a i:eu
erous welcome. He is in bis glory
there as the making of n dish ot excellence. But cross thc frontier into
Germany, and you will not find a
rabbit on the table. The Oetmaiis regard tho animal as vermin and won't
eat it.
Again, thero was a time when an
accidental parr ol rabbits emigrated
to Australia, and (with tlie family in-
struct) devastated the country. The
Australian wouldn't eat rabbits—but
caught them, anil- s<*«l them baek tp
Europe. At tl>0 present minient Australia is sacrificing rabbits which it
won't eat. In Paris rabbit is "lupin."
In Berlin it is vermin. And the Inst
consular report from Munich announces that tho Bavarians will not
breed rabbits lor Iood.
After that one can scarcely wonder
that the silver streak separates the
people who live t. eat frogs and
Bnails, and the people who cast ridicule and epithets on llio-e who seek
to enjoy them. A Frenchman is still
a "Froggy" to the English country-
mi.n who is quite ignorant of the excellence ol the left of a frog ns a table
companion, though hi* may find it bf
his door. And tbe snail (n clean
feeder and an animol less addicted to
roaming than the pheasant, for example) is neglected by the country
man who could pick it Irom his
meadows and (.aniens. We waste our
frogs and snails in Canad >.
In India the natives will not cat
