Iv.  C.   MacDonald,   Liberal
candidate   for Yale-Cariboo,
and M. A. MacDonald, a brilliant young orator from Cranbrook.   All who desire to listen to an able exposition of the

has a town population of more than
40011 inhabitants. In this calculation I am considering only the land
between   (iilpin   and   Carson and the
valley of the North Fork for
12 miles north of the city. The trade
of this district will all come to Grand
Forks, and its potential fruitgrowing
acreage ie fully three times as great
as the acreage tributary to Wonatchee,
which has more than 4000 inhabitants.
Grand Forks will also probably become a centre of the railway industry.
We are remarkably well supplied with
railroads here, and if the railroads get
proper encouragement they will undoubtedly build shops here and make
this place one of the most important
railway towns iu the West. I have it
on excellent authority that, to secure
the erection of i'ailway shops here,
nothing is expected but the exemption
of such shops from taxes for a term of
years to be agreed upon. Now, there
will be no exemption from taxee in
the case of dwelling houses of the
railroad men, and thu location of such
shops here would greatly increase the
revenue of the city, even if the shops
themselves should be exempted from
taxation. Somebody sbould inquire
into this matter fully, aud take the
necessary steps to secure  the  location

a great future before it, but I feel The climate of Grand Forks ought
eure  that   GrandForks   has   also a | to be a strong factor in  increasing its
population. At present there are two
slight drawbacks, the heat during the
day in the middle of the summer and
the winds that occasionally  blow   in
bright future before it, au j I think
th it people should consider the matter
very carefully before leaving their
old homes here to seek new ones in
Vancouver. '
In considering the future of  Grand
Forks the mind natuially   turns  first
to the Granby smelter, as that is  one
of our oldest industries.   I think there
can be no doubt concerning  the per*
manency of  this   smelter.    It is the
second largest copper smelter in  the
world, and it is likely that fifty years
from   now   hundreds of men will be
found at work there, and  that there
will be a large payroll.    Even  if the
present Granby mines should in time
become   exhausted,  there   can be no
ileubt   that   the   company,  whioh is
very   enterprising,  will find   and develop new mines, as they are continually looking fur new sources of   supply.    A great deal of money has hern
spent on the smelter, and the Granby
company will never be  willing to lose
that   money   if tbey  can find copper
ore   anywhere   within   two or three
hundred miles of Grand Forks
In one respect the Grai.by oompany

The Koyal Lilliputian Opera com
pany presented "San Toy" to a large
and appreciative audience at the
Grand Forks opera house on Wednesday night. On the following night
"The Gondoliers" was the bill, and it
was received by a large audience with
equal favor. The Royal Lilliputian
Opera company is composed of thirty
clever young people. It is an organization of a superior nature. Baby
Grace, only four and one-hulf years of
age, captured the hearts of the audi
ence with hei clever singing, dancing
and acting. The star, Miss Pearl
Carlyle, possesses a sweet soprano
voice and beauty of face and form,
and her work in both the' operas was
greatly admired by those who had the
good fortune to be present.

Growers aud packers are also particularly reminded that the definition
of Grades, Fancy No. 1 aud No. 2,
do not vary from year to year, nor do
they vary in dilferent provinces of the
Dominion. If the quality of the fruit
generally is poor, tbe only result is,
that a small proportion of the fruit is
of the higher grades.
Copies of the Inspection and Salo
Act, giving sizes of boxes, and all
other particulars regarding the pack-
ng and marking of fruit and fruit
packages, can be had on application
from all Dominion fruit inspectors.

Tory Nominee for Reciprocity
At the MacLeod, Alta,, Conservative convention on Wednesday night,
John Herron, member for MacLeod
for the past seven years, went back on
Borden's trade policy. In taking the
nomination he said: "If elected again

with water, the evaporation will cool

residents have an abundance of water,
they can easily plant and maintain
windbreaks that will keep the dust
from reaching their houses.
Many men of wealth from the prairie provinces on retiring   from   business have gone to Vancouver to live,
and the dampness of the air there  in
the winter has so seriously  interfered
with   their   health  and comfort that
they have been compelled to  go back
to toe praii ies to live.    Lately, however,  most of   theui, instead of going
back to the prairies, have   removed to
Vernon and other towns in the Okanagan district. There is no doubt  that
many men of this  stamp  will come
here to live as soon as the  superiority
of the Grand Forks  climate  becomes
known.    Last year the  first   buttercups   were  picked  here in bloom on

The Sane Middle Course
At  the  Conservative   meeting the
other night Martin   Burrell  declared
tliat every man  in Canada   must  be
one of two things, either an   imperial
ist or an anti imperialist, that there is
no middle course.    Was be correct in
that statement?    Must every man be
an extremist, oue way  or the   other!
We think uot.    Must each one  of   ue
be either a nationalist of the  Quebec
type or an imperialist of the other extreme   brand!    Both of   these   types
make their respective causes  unpopular by their very blundering zeal. Mr.
Burrell   stated  that Canada's prime

declared that he favored reciprocity
with the United States because every
one in his constituency favored it, issued a statement in MacLeod this
week explaining his position. He said
that farmers' unions had voted in fa
vor of the agreement almost unanimously, town councils and boards of
trade had endorsed it, and he had
only a few letters opposing it. He
said he saw dangeis in reciprocity, but
that if the people did not find it to
work to their advantage, it could be
cancelled by a stroke of the pen.

All this wos news indeed to Vera,
though it is already known to the
reader; but she asked no questions-
she wus quite content to stand there
and listen to all thut Evors hud to
"I would not stay with your brother," he went on. "I went off immediately to an old fViend, to whom
I told a portion of my story. • He
supplied ine with money and clothing, and advised me that' the best
thing I could do was to go quietly
away into the country und give myself
an entire rest. I followed his advice,
and I drifted down here, I suppose
in the same way that an animal finds
its way home. I did not know my
father was away, and you can imagine
my surprise when I discovered to
whom he had let the house. I feel
pretty much myself now; there is no
danger of my showing the white
feather again. If you are in trouble
or distress, a line to the address on
this card will bring me to you at any
time. In this house there are certain hiding places where I could secrete myself without anybody being
the wiser, but we need not go into
that. Now perhaps you had better
return to the house or you may be
missed. Goodnight, Vera. You cannot tell how wonderfully helpful
your sympathy has been to me."
He was gone a moment later, and
Vera returned slowly and thoughtfully to the house. The place was
perfectly quiet now; the billiard
room door wos open, and Vera could
see that the apartment was deserted.
Apparently the household had retired
to rest, though it seemed to be nobody's business to fasten up the
doors. Most of the lights were out,
for it was getting very late now, so
that there was nothing for it but for
Vera to go up the stairs to her own
room. She hnd hurdly reached the
landing when a door halfway down
burst open, and Fenwick stood there
shouting at the top of his voice for
such of his satellites as he mentioned
by name. He seemed to be almost beside himself with passion, though at
the same time his face was pallid with
a deadly fear. He held a small object,
in his hand, which he appeared to
regard with disgust and loathing.
"Why don't some of you come
out?" he yelled. "You drunken dogs,
where have you all got to? Let the
man come out who hus played this
trick on me, and I'll break every
bone in his body."
One or two heads    emerged,    ond
presently a little group stood round
the enraged und affrighted Fenwick.
' Standing in a doorway.    Vera could
hear every word that passed.    ,
"I locked my door after dinner,"
Fenwick said. "It is a patent lock,
no key but mine will fit it. When I
go to bed I find this thing lying on
the dressing table."
"Another of the fingers," a voice
cried. "The third finger. Are you
sure you locked your door?"
"I'll sweor it," Fenwick yelled,
"And if one of vou—but of course it
can't bc one of you. There is no
getting   rid   of   this   occursed   thing.
And when the last one comes "
Fenwick stopped os if something
had choked him.
she hod dropped it. She could afford
to wait on events now; she could
possess her soul in patience till the
hour ond the man came together.
Somewhat to her relief. Fenwick
did not appear at breakfast, so that
for once, she could partake of the
meol in comporative comfort. Swaggering up and down the terrace outside, with o large cigar in his mouth,
wus the man who called himself
Blossett. He had the air of one who
is waiting for something; possibly he
was waiting for the parcel which
had been the cause of lost night's
disturbance in the billiard room.
Anyway, Vero noticed that Fenwick
was very busy up and downstairs
and that all his parasites had gathered in the little room at the end of
the corridor.   For the present at nnyl est mistress io write.    Are you mad
rute Vera's curiosity was satisfied.
She had no intention of running any
more risks and ns soon as she had
finished her breakfast she went out
into the grounds with no intention
of returning before lunch. She made
her way across the wood which led
to the high rood on the possible
chnnce of meeting Gerald. It wos

loomed in the opening, and a hoarse
voice asked if somebody was there:
Zary stepped out again and confronted Fenwick, who started back as if
the slim black apparition had been
a ghost.
"You here!" he stammered. "I
did not expect to see you—I came

"It is not for me to sny yes or no,"
Znry replied in the snme quiet, silky

hle to identify this mnn with murder
nnd outrage.   "Denr lndy, I nm but

Agricultural    Labor is Not So   Well
Paid in the United States
In adopting Reciprocity with the
United States, Canada would enter
into an unequal and unfair competition in farm labor. Senator Stone of
Missouri, spoke ut Washington the
other day on tlfis phase of the agreement, und showed that farm labor
was cheaper ia the States thun in
Canada. The Brooklyn Times, commenting on this speech as follows,
shows how foolish it would be for
the Canuck to try to compete with
chenp Yankee labor —
"It has lieen generally assumed thnl
farm wages paid on the American
side of the line were higher than
those paid in Canada, nnd that therefore the advantages of free entry for
Cnnadian form products conceded by
the proposed reciprocal ngreeinent
meant a decided advantage to the
Canadian fnrmer at the expense of
his Americnn competitor. But, according to Senator Stone of Missouri,
who in his speech quoted libernlly
from American official figures, the
boot is on the other leg. The Missouri Senator demonstrated that the
Canadian furmers really pay more
for their farm labor than we pay on
the United Stntes side of the line,
nnd tbat if anybody hns cnuse to
fear disaster from reciprocity it is
the Canndinn nnd not tlie American.
It is the Canuck who has cause to
dread the competition of cheap Yankee labor, ond not the bloated plutocrat of American farms."

Tba Way the Task and Bsnua System
Operates In a Factory.
Tbe tuk and bonus ayatem waa Introduced by uie In lbe Bethlehem Steel
worka tn 1001 aa a annua ot affording
substantial Justice to tbe employe*.
while requiring bim to conform to tbe
best Inieresta ot bl* employer, says a
writer iu tbe engineering Magazine.
Tbe employee was not told In a general way "to do better," but bad a
definite sinndnrd eet (or bim and was
ahowu bow io reach tbat standard, for
wblcb be was awarded compensation
In addition to bin usual day's pay.
The system may be described In a
general way as follows: A card la
made out showing In detail tbe best
method we can devise of performing
eacb of tbe elementary operations on
any piece of work, specifying the
time needed for eacb of these operations aa determined by experiments.
The sum uf these times In tbe total
time needed to complete tbe piece of
work. If a mnn follows bin Instructions and accomplishes sll tbe work
laid out for bim as constituting bla
proper task tor tbe day be ta paid a
definite bonus In addition to bla day
rate wblcb be always gets. It. bow-
evert at tbe end at tbe day be ban
failed to accomplish all tbe work laid
out be does not get bla bonus, bnt
simply bis day rate. As tbe time for
eacb detail operation la stated am tbe
Instruction card, tbe workman can continually see whether be ts earning
bonus or not If be finds any operation which he cannot do tn tbe time
eel be mnst at once report lo ma
foreman, who must show btm bow to
do tt or report to tbe man wbn made
ont tbe Instruction curd If tbe latter
baa made an error be must mnke out
a new instruction card, explaining tbe
proper method of working and allowing the proper time If. however, tbe
Inlsrnctor contends that tbe work can
be done In tbe time set be muat sbow

The Human Eya and the Mystery ef
Distinguishing Hues.
It la a curious fact tbat wbile there
are seven colors In the rainbow—red,
orange, yelhiw. green, blue, md'.eo and
violet-only three uf ihem are primary
—red, green and violet That la to say,
these three appear to be simple colon,
while all tbe others may b« produced
by various combinations of tbese three.
Red and green combine In certain proportions to produce yellow. In a different proportion the two produce orange. Again, green and violet combine
to produce blue. It la said all abadea
of color are merely different combinations of tbe three primaries.
In keeping wltb this fact eome of|
the ableet writer* bave beld that there,
are three nerves, and but three. In the
human eye—one to respond to ihe color
red, another to green and yet another
to violet Otber authorities present a
different explanation. In tbe eye of tbe
frog In tbe act ot seeing tbere ta a visible chemical acfton. Tbere Is a cbem-
t.-iil sutistani-e exuded or spread over
ihe retina or interior ot ibe eye of tbe
frog, called purpurine because of lt>
purple color Under the action of light
this substance bleaches while.
Many today believe that tbe human
eye haa truly bnt a single optic nerve,
for Burgeons seem able to find bnt one.
Tbey bold, bowever. tbat lu our aet of
seeing a chemical salwtance ta exuded
or spread over this nerve and tbat thia
substance baa three different constituents, one element In It responding to
tbe color red, souther to green and yet
another to violet Tbese inner authorities dispense wltb tbe three special
optic nerves by providing our eyee
witb a threefold chemical enostance.

FRIDAY, AUGUST *b,' 1911
When the Tory papers say that
Mr. Burrell has done his duty as
member for Yale-Cariboo; they
should enumerate some of the ser
vices he has rendered this constituency. He voted against the government'! naval policy, in favor of
granting the Vancouver, Victoria &
Eastern railway an extens on of time
in which to complete its line to the
coant, and assisted in forcing an elec
tion before redistribution. That's bis
record, in brief, in the house. If
he can gain bis re-election on that

the electors.
Recikhooity will give employment
to a greater number of men through
the general increase of business and
the establishment of new industries.
While the Tory papers of this
province are shedding crocodile tear*
in their editorial columns because,
as they assert, reciprocity will ruin
the fruit-growing industry, their
news columns convey the information that Wenatehee and other fruit
growing districts in Washington are
at present swarming with fruit buyers from the big eastern cities of
the United Slates. With reciproci
ty, these buyers would give the
British Columbia fruit the preference, because we grow a superior
quality of fruit on tbis side of tbe
Reciprocity will benefit the iimnu-
fucc-urer through the general impetus
taa business and not jeopardize the
protection he now enjoys.
SoMB of the local Tories arc rather
inconsistent when thev assert thnt
the Canadian people will be sandbagged by they American trusts in
the event reciprocity carries. The
trusts are the allies of the eastern
Tories, and our Conservative friends
in this city should have a deeper
reverence for tbem tlmn to intimate
thnt tbey would be guilty of sand-
bugging anyone. But wbile saml-
baajging  is   the   topic, we   wish  to

Reciprocity will benefit the consumer.
Hon. Rii'hahd McBride Is talking wildly at the coast when he
couples reciprocity with the diis-
membermeut of tbe empire. Between 1654 and 1856 Canada had a
reciprocity treaty with the United
States, and those familiar with Canadian history know that the bene
fits were twenty to one in favor of
this country. There was no danger
at that lime of the United Stales annexing Canada, and there will be
none when the present treaty is rali-
tied, because the country has gained
considerable strength since 1*356.
Reciprocity will lessen the cost of

British Columbia timber aud agricultural lands to American capitalists there was not the slightest danger of the dismemberment of the

The Ottawa Freo Press has given
the people of Victoria a valuable
pointer as to the likely substance of
the next forged telegram that is to be
sent in Mr. Borden's name pledging
something, "if elected," for this constituency. We had been worrying
about what Mr. Borden could promise
and the Free I'reus suggests that he
could promise to buld a whole navy
at this point. That ought to carry
an election with all the ultra-loyal
people we have iu Victoria They
would uo doubt feel safe as soon as
Mr. Borden makes the promise. But
in all fairness to Mr. Borden he
should not be placed in such a posi
tion again as to have to say on the
floor of the house, "1 never *eiit such
a telegram."—Victoria Times.
In selecting Dr. K. C. MacDonald
as their candidate, the Liberals of
Yale-Cariboo have put in the Held the
strongest man available, one who
would bo a strong candidate in any
constituency. II" ba* a pleasing personality, is a lighter from the ground
up, is well versed in public questions
both federal aitp prii.ini.-ial, and a,
brimful of energy and enthusiasm, It
will not Im his fault if he does not redeem Yalo-Cariboo, It 1ms been asserted that, partly because, perhaps,
there were seveial candidates seeking
the nomination, that the Liberals iif
Yale Cariboo are torn by dissention.
Thu Conseratives never made n greater mistake, So far from there being
any dissention, the Liberals of Yale-
Cariboo are united today as they have
not been for years. Yesterday's convention was the most harmonious political gathering ever held in the constituency. Eaoh cundidate for the
nomination recognised the worth and
claims of the others, and tho contest
was conducted with the best possible
feeling on nil sides and with the utmost friendliness. The result, the
nomination   of   Dr. MacDonald,   was
acceptable to every delegate at the
convention and will be equally acceptable to every Liberal throughout
the huge district of Yale-Cariboo. It
now behooves evory good Liberal and
every supporter of reciprocity to set
to work in earnest to secure hia election.—Kamloops Sentinel.
The British preference was the first
tangible cementing of the empire ever
done in Canada. Tbe Liberals did it
and the ultra-loyal Tories opposed it.
Calgary Albertan,
Nothing could be more clearly emphasized bv the Conservative party
than its inalienable affection for the
policy of high protection. While a
thousand expedients are resorted to in
order to defeat reciprocity, what is
really aimed at is the stiffening of th
present tarill'on imports coming into
Canada and the maintenance of the
blockade tariff against exports of the
wheat, fruit, lumber, fish, minn-nl
and other products of the Dominion.
No one could be more emphatic in
frank declaration of this policy than
Premier McBride, who, after denouncing an open market us dangerous to
the country, said: "We can play the
game of Uncle Sam and raise our
tariff still higher. ' There ean be no
doubt that a' vote for a Conservative
will be a vote for still more costly
foodstuffs, and a vote for a Liberal
will mean freer trade and the cheapening of food.—Victoria Times.
In this election campaign the Liberal coat is going to be washed with
some very hard soap, but the color is
not going to fade. After the election it
11 still be Grit in tint.a good honest,
old fashioned shade. The ai- will presently be full of the smoke of battle and
lauguvge of a picturesque tone, aud
the fighting will be severe, but the result will be tho same. Sir Wilfrid is
sure of victory, but Mr. Borden is
equally sure, of course. According to
the extreme papers on both sides,
neither side can lose. The Tory papers
are already weakening a little, ami
are saying now they fear that there
are thousands of electors who have
not sufficient moral courage to vote
against reciprocity. Mr. Borden and
his janizaries have started out on a
campaign of fake statements, which,
opposed to tho wholesome truths of
the Liberals, cannot be effective. The
dishrag Tory papers all over the country are making the picturesque statement that after the 21s of September
the name of the Liberals will be mud,
but thev are using so much mud themselves   faar   ammunition    that    their

Quaar Russian Sact Which Haa Become  Canadianized.
The Doukhobor women have been
reclaimed Irom the plow.
No lunger do they sweat in the fields
ol Canada instead of horses. Even as
their men are ceasing to be the wild
wanderers and lanatical spirit-wrest-
lers they were when they appeared
in the iiortluvest several years ago, so
l... new world's environment.! hav--
drawn the women back from the brute
level, to which they had beeu degraded, to the home, with its cooking, its
spinning and its weaving — old-time
tasks, it is true, but tasks adjusted lo
Miwr strength.
The melting pot of this western
world has recast even the Doukhobors.
The colony boasts of a substantial
schooluouse. Doukhobor teachers wen
educated in the schools and returned
to impart the knowledge to their fellow-colonists.
Ridiculed by Canada the Doukhobors pilgrimages in the dead of winter, through snow-covered roads to
meet their "Christ," made them the
laughing stock of the country. But
those crudities are things of the past;
they have become Canadianized in
the true sense of the word.
There are two colonies ol Doukhobors in Canada — Yorkton, containing
7.000 members, and Koathoru, with
1,500. The Doukhobors now use horses.
Formerly ttiey believed tt was unscrip-
tural to work these animals and the
women instead acted as beasts of burden. Eighteen of them were generally neeueu to take the place of a team.
The women now are engaged in the
Uumesuc arts and are .iiajjUitiee.it em-
broiderers. Tae farmers are becoming
prosperous and many of them have
the latest funning machinery and the
bust ol live slock. Tneir objections to
the use ol animals as servants of man
have beeu overcome.
Apartment Life
"My grandfather used to sleep in
a fourposter."
"People used to live in thos.1 days.
There were no Hats then. Now 1 sleep
on an ironing hoard rigged up in the
diningroom on two chairs.
Canada's Butter Trade
Canada's export trade in butter is
not so great at the present time that
her farmers cnn iiftord to imperil
their dairy industry by a tariff
scheme that would, in all probability, make the country's imports in
this article greater than her exports.
In the yeur ending 11)10 Canada shipped only 4,6I5,.'I80 pounds of butter,
worth $1,010,274. Canada'fl imports
of butter on the other hand, amounted to 687,454 pounds, worth $104,301.

What man or woman is thera
among us "ho has not heard of the
Sphinx? What traveler in Egypt,
that land of fascination, «hrouded in
mystery and majestic calm, who hai

the veil concealing its origin and
symbolism. For hundreds of years it
has kept its motionless watch in the

fruitless efforts of puny mortals to

edge that it was safe. Ana now tht
man is with us who claims to have
accomplished what all hit precursor;
throughout the centuries have failed
to do—to have read the riddle of the
Sphinx. The archaeologist! of to-day.
of course, claim that Professor Retainer's solution is just what they
themselves expected, nothing startling, nothing particularly original;
but archaeologists are like the rest
of humanity in most vital respects,
and they have learnt the wisdom cl
saying. "I told you so."
Authorities have held widely divergent views as to the date of the carving of the image; by some it is allotted to the period hefore the fourth
dynasty, in which the Second Pyramid was built; whilst by a majority
of others it is credited to later times,
owing to the more frequent appearance of .-.phinxes at a later date.
Professor Reisner has discovered the
statue of the builder of the Third
Pyramid which also owes its origin to
the fourth dynasty, and his headdress is in every respect similar to
that of the Sphinx. Since this particular form of head-dress doea not
appear anywhere else, the two obviously synchronise. Thus it is prov.
ed that the Sphinx is the effigy ol
Cephren, son of Cheops, who built
himself the first Mid greatest pyramid of the three tombs. The intention in placing the head of the king
on Ihe body of a lion ia to convey the
idea of the monarch trampling down

Aker, the watchman of the nether,
world and guardian of Ra. the sun-
god, ia frequently depicted as a
aphinx, as, indeed, ia Ra himself
wh#n he goes forth to war. That explains the fact of tha Sphinx being
face to face with the rising sun. The
peculiar duty of sphinxes is to guard
tombs from desecration at the hands
of the stranger, so that its position
with regard to the pyramid is accounted for. And it is strange how
that lifeless thing of cold stone doe;
trouble the minds of those who venture near. You who havo caaad al
the immobile features of that mighty
countenance, which yet has such a
strikingly searching and awe-inspiring effect, will realize what I mean.
The lB-t strong proof th » the 8phim
is representative of Cephren Prof.
Reisner came across during excavations around the Third Pyramid, for
he, as stated, discovered the statue
of Mycerinus, builder of the same. Tt
ia probable that this Mycerinus was
a nephew of Cephren.
In 1903 three professors. Steindorff,
Echiaprelli. and Reisner, were allowed to inve.-tigate at Oizeh. Schiap-
relli took the First Pyramid, Stein-
dorff the Second. Reisner the Third,
which waa productive oi most interest. The last named professor first

which had been divided between the
three of them, his particular portion
being the northerly. Hei» he unearthed the tombs of mnny of ths
eons and daughters of Cl.eops and
other matters of interest, his chi.'l
work in this direction being the identification of the royal cemetery ol
Cephren. near the Second Pyramid.
In 1(106 and 1007 the excavation el
the Pyramid Temnle of Mycerinus
waa undertaken. Here was discovered a magnificent alabaster statue ol
Mycerinus, nf which the head was
outside the temple, so close to the
ftirft.ee that a tourist's stick or umbrella might have given away it)
In 1908, while searching for thf
valley temple of the Third Pyramid
—for the Germans had previously discovered a valley temple to a pyramid
of later date, proving that the Sphinx
Temple was the valley temple of the
Second Pyramid—a l.iud-brick building was discovered, and therein were
disclosed a number of priceless treasures. In 1910 was found a beautiful
pair statue, in dark si te, of Mycerinus and his queen, which was al.
most incredibly well preserved and
had passed throutrh the centuries undiscovered with only a stone between
it and thn light of day.
Three temples in all were found,
one by Mycerinus, one hy his son
Sltepseshaf, both unfinished, and one
hy Pepy II. of the sixth dynasty.
T'nfortunately in an article of thii
kind, one ean only touch lightly on
this enthralling subject. The great
point is, however, that prool is given
of Ihe fact that the statues discovered
Ste of lhe fourth dvnastv  pvramid*
nad valley temples. Therefore the
great Sphinx Temple is th" valley
temple of the Second Pyramid, the
tomb of Cephren. Moreover, the dispute aa to the date of the great diorite
statue of Cephren and of the Sphinx
itself was finally settled, for exactly
the characteristics of the Cephren
statue and the Sphinx which were
supposed to be of later date were
found in the newly unearthed statues.

Busy Quean Mary,
In buaineea matters Queen Mary in
clear and expeditious, methodical
and systematic. Her mornings are
generally taken up with attending to
the voluminous correspondence that
arrives by every poet.
Her secretary and lady in waiting
aubmit their letters and the Queen
gives instructions concerning them.
According to The North American
Review ahe quickly grasps the main
issue of a question and soon make*
up her mind.
i" She haa never bean known to la.
aside a matter on the ground that to
express an opinion thereon is irksome
or difficult. But should any letter
require further conaideration it is
held over for a day, when a decision
ie given and aimoat invariably adhered to.
Every consideration ia shown to
those privileged to eerve the Queen,
and before signifying ber pleasure as
to the personal attendance of mem-
bera of her houshold ahe will often
inquire whether they may not hav
some other engagement the breaking
of which would be inconvenient ta.
Busy though the Queen ia—and one
who haa known her for 20 years has
never aeen her unoccupied—she is
intimately acquainted with and taker
part in all that relates to the management of the household. Every Ber.
vant is known to bar, and their conduct is as much a matter of concern
to their royal miatnaa aa that of any
one else. In fact no detail of life
wearies the Queen, hence the reason
that her sympathies an wide and all
her days full of work.
A Plucky Actor.
It waa Mr. Laurence Irving, who is
appearing with sueh success at the
Garrick Theatre, London, in "The Unwritten Law," who created a sensation in New York at the beginning of
thia year by making a speech front
the stage dealing with the unfairness
of dramatic critica, and aome time
previously he waa called to account
by experts lor saying that the publi-
did not want genuine drama. "If actors only aimed low enough," he sail,
"sprinkled their plays with innuendoes, and smeared them over with
gore, they would find a large public
at their back." By the way, Mr. Irving, who, of course, is the younger
eon of Uie late Sir Henry Irving,
strongly objects to being boomed as
the ton of that famous actor. "The
fact ia one of which I am so very
proud," he saya, "that I could onl>
think poorly of a (on who allowed his
father's name to ba used aa a box-
office appendage to himeelf."

which inspired him with that love of
engineering which led him to become

The Last Resource of the Litigant ...
Great Britain.
A noble chamber, aglow with gold
and a riot of richly-blended color;
light streaming throush painted glasi
on paneiled walls hlar.ing with armorial shields, on tiers of crimson
benches, on rich oak carvings, fres-
eoes and statues, anc" on a gorgeoua
canopied  throne.
And in this environment of color
and splendor a handful nf elderly
lentlemen, one bewigged. the others
in morntne-dress. seated before tnhles-
littered with papers; facing them a
fringe of unimposing lawyers and
litigants standing behind a low partition of oak. The silence broken
only by the low-pitched monotone of
a counsel, as if engaged ln a confidential chat with hi) seared elders.
Such is England's Supreme Court
of Appeal, the most august tribunal
in the land, the final refuge of the
disappointed litigant. And such ia
the quaint spectacle which yon may
see if you care to drop into the House
of Lords on any one of four days a
week during term-time.
The tribunal is probably the most
remarkable in the world.
Unlike any other court, it opena
daily with prayer, to which not even
the chief law-officer of the crown may
be present to say "Amen." Shortly

After prayers, his lordship leavea
the Woolsack and takes hia seat before a scarlet-covered table in the
centre of the floor; the Law Lords,
without even a wig among tbem, seat
themselves on one flank, on * front
bench, each before his table.
"Call in the parties in the case,"
the summons goes forth. The doors
are flung open, and through them
streams a motley crowd of bewigged
counsel, solicitors, litigants, and a
meagre sprinkling of the curious or
interested public.
There   is   no   examining cr   cross-

and no more than two men of wig'

When counsel have said their last
word, no judgment follows at once.
Their leisurely lordships require time
to weigh well the points raised, and
weeks may elapse before the final fiat
is given.
When this day arrives, counsel and

voice of the majority finally determine the issue.
Before an appeal can lie heard, tha
appellant must pledge himself to the
amount of £900 as security for costs,
and provide a surety for £250.
He must present a humble petition,

Bank Holidays.
Sir John Lubbock, now Lord Ave-
bury, who founded those popular institutions, explains why Bank Holidays are so called. The reason is
somewhat technical. It is generally
known that the payer of a bill in
England gets three days' grace, so that
a bill coming due nominally nn the
first of the month is not really payable
till three days later. If, however, the
third day happened to be a Sunday,
Christmas Day. or Good Friday, it is
stipulated that payment be mnde the
day before. After some ca insider a-
tion, it was determined to allow pay-
ment on the day following, in place
'il the day before, the Sunday, Christ- |
mas Day, or Good Friday, and "Bank
1 aladtiy" was the name given in Eng- a
land to the new day ol grace. j
Canada's Annals Contain a Record-
Breaking Caaa.
Gory pamphlets used to be issued
'after executions not only in tbis country, but in England. In London there
were printing shops which produced
nothing but horrible booklets treating of murders and hangings. Tbe;
enjoyed a tremendous sale and were
bought by all classes of people.
Une of the most expensive of these
pamphlets extant is a book of 32 pages,
describing the iniquitous career and
tragic end of Sophia Hamilton, who
waa sentenced to death at Fredericton,
N.B., in 1845, for an almost incredible
series of crimes. And ii tbe story contained in the pamphlet is true she was
entitled to the championship as a
The achievements of Kate Bender
and Belle Uunuess were trivial by
comparison. Une may speak flippantly now of her career, since all concerned are in their graves, but the
people of New Brunswick, sixty years
ago, mentioned her name with shuddering). Her father was a murderer
before her, and was killed by a dog
belonging to one of his victims. Sophia, when 17 years of age, married,
an excellent young man, who relused
to believe stories he heard reflecting
upon ber character. After being married awhile he was convinced that
the stories were true, and took his
young wife to task, which proved so
embarrassing to ber that she placed
poison in his soup, and he died tbe
Then she established a wayside inn
near Woodstock, N. B., gathered
about her a corps of skillful homicidal experts and took up murder
and'robbery as her life work. She
had the house remodeled to facilitate
hu work and there were rooms with
trapdoors in the floor, and sliding
panels in the walls, and similar contrivances. Her cellar became a
morgue. At first she buried her victims carefully, but as time went on
and business increased she became
rather careless and just left them
lying around.
There was much traffic along the
quiet road where her inn stood. The
banking facilities of that time were
not as they now are. and some of the
travelers on their way to buy furs or
lumber or other merchandise carried
large sums of money. Sophia easily
picked out such travelers when they
stopped at her cozy caravansary, and
made herself agreeable to them and
treated them to wine whi:h she had
drugged with much skill, and then
the travelers vanished fr .m the face
of the earth. .e did not always kill
them in the inn. however. She was a
woman of resources. Two gentlemeu
Irom Quebec who were on a fur buying expedition visited the inn, and
Sophia soon learned that they had a
large sum of money in gold. She was
hoping they would stay lor the night,
but they had an unreasonable desire
to push on and started away in their
sled. Sophia, seeing they could not
be detained, seat a couple of her deputies up the road to waylay them.
The deputies stretched a rope across
the road, and when the travelers
horse ran into it the murderers did
their work, and Sophia came up just
in time to see the victims die and relieve them of 110.000 in gold. Upon
another occasion she waited upon a
guest at the breakfast table with her
own (air hands, and took occasion to
stab him in the back while he was
commenting upon tbe excellence ol
the coffee.
Finally Sophia was arrested for the
murder of a Quaker, whose body waa
found in hei cellar. Sbe was tried
at Fredericton and sentenced to death,
but some of h:*r friends managed to
convey poison to her a few days beiore
the date set for the banging and she
uied in her cell.

"Degenerate"  Arista.
That artists as a class are somewhat
inclined to be degenerate ia a widely-
