Received at the Granby
The chief difference between thej
Cana iian and British laws was that a
man had to be present in Canada only
three yeara to become a naturalized
Canadian, while io Qreat Britain five
years' residence waa required.  By the
proposed law the British  authorities; Yi, F. LaWS Obtains a  Yield
of 481-2 Bushels of Fall'
Wheat Per Aore
The first shipment of ore, consisting
of one carload, from the Union  group
of claims in Gloucester eamp,   arrived
at the Granby smelter on Wednesday
from   Lynch   Creek, (he   ore having
been hanled to that point by   teams.
Peterson & Hansen, of this city, have
the contract of hauling 100 tons of
ure from the Union to Lynch Creek,
the transportation costing  the owners
415 per ton.   The ore runs  high   in
gold  and silver, assays giving returns
of  from   135 to 1230 per ton.    The
group of claims consist of the  Union,
Union fraction, Idaho and Paper Dol *
Iar,   all   adjoining.   The owners are
Louis   Johnson,   Patrick   Maginnis,
Jack Henderson and the Michael McDonald estate, each party holding  a
quarter   interest.   The   pay    streak
from which the ore being   snipped   is
mined is located on the Union  claim
and is sixteen feet in width at prac
tically the surface, and indications of
its increasing as depth is gained   are
very   favorable.    A   glory* hole has
been started on the Union claim, and
for the present this ayatem of  mining
will be carried on, although a  tunnel
several hundred feet down the hill has
been  driven  for  a distance of fifty
feet, an J at present Patrick Byrnes is
working on a contract for the further
extension of this by another flfty feet,
which it is thought will tap the lead.
The open cut or glory hole is  rapidly
'   atsuming proportions, a large crew of
men being employed on the work. At
{.resent it is snme seventy fire feet in
ength and fifty feet wide. Over
100 tons of shipping ore are now on the
dump. Tho Union is the first property in either Franklin or Gloucester
camps to undertake the shipment of
ore on a commercial basis, and if the
smelter returns from the 100 tons are
satisfactory, it is the intention of the
owners to keep up the shipments
stick to five years, but five years in
the British empire, with the last year
in Great Britain, is sufficient for naturalization purposes. Canada wil
adopt similar legislation and both
goveanments will' recognise the other's
naturalization laws.

will not necessarily prevent the present legislation act remaining nn the

Alabama Minstrels
In speaking of the Alabama Minstrels, the Morning Times, of San
Jose, Cal., had the following to say.
The Alabama Minstrels gave their
initial performanoe at The Grand lost
night. While the fact of their arriving in two private < ars, and giving a
first-class | erode and concert promised
a fair enterbugineut, San Jose was
scarcely expecting the nigh-class entertainment given,
The oompany is a large one and a
full orchestra of good musicians did
much to enliven the performance.
There was the newest and rangiest of
rag songs sung in the full rich tones
ommon to those who trace their ancestry to the sunny shores of Africa.
There were many jokes and clever
ones, and the best did not always-
come from the end men. Every man
was an actor, ud every actor was a
clever entertainer.
The number and excellence of the
several special feature performances
would give them rank among the best
vaudeville performers. There was a
tight walker who was a marvel at
tumbling and balancing. There was
also a fire eater who played with fire,
apparently without aay fear of his
satanic majesty.
The dances .included all the steps
learned down on the Alabama plantation and a few which are supposed to
havehad their origin in San Francisco. The company includes a numberof
dusky belles, some of them of unquestionable Ethiopian beauty, and
(heir parts went a long way toward
making the performance a high class
one, Their voices were rich and mel •
low and their dancing graceful. The
performance of the minstrels was a
welcome revival of that kind of entertainment in our oity.

Soundings for K. V. R, Bridge
The engineering corpe of the Kettle Valley railway, which has been
engaged for upwards of six weeks
making soundings of the bottom of
tbe Fraser river for bridge foundations for the structure which is to
span the river at Hope to make con*
nection with the main line of the
Canadian Pacific railway, are now
sounding at a point ahout two hundred vards below Hope station.
The sounding is for the purpose
of determining the distance to lied-
rock. At other locations the leant
depth at which it wsb encountered
was 170 feet, and at the present location the diamond drill is down to
over 70 feet witb no rign of bedrock.
However, this point has been settled upon as tbe site of the bridge,
and approaches on either side have
lieen cleared.
As soon as the engineers have
completed their soundings, the type
of the bridge will be decided upon,
and at as early a time as possible
bids for tbe rubstructural and su-
pi-rstructural work will be asked.

New Naturalization Law
Concurrent legislation in the Can
udian and British houses will he put
through shortly with a view to making
uniform conditions geverning natural*
ioation laws.
For years there has beer, an agitation over the question of naturalization. As matters now stand, the Uni
ted Kingdom does not recognize the
Canadian naturalization laws, which
are not as strict as the British. Tliere
has arisen the anomaly of a natutal-
ized Canadian being a British subject
in Canada and not recognized as such
in the motherland. The most notable
case is that of Hon. George H. Perley,
minister without portfolio, who was
born in the United States and is a
naturalized Canadian. Although being
a minister of the orown and an adviser
of the king, if he went to England he
would not ba a British subject. This
has worked both . ways, though the
other side of it has never been emphasized, but a man naturalized in Great
Britain would have no standing as
British subject in Canada.
The British Columbia Copper
company haB decided (o put in at

its other mines in the district.

His Real Mission
It is reported that the real purpose
of Sir Richards McBride's trip to
London is to arrange for a provincial
loan. If this is correct there is no
particular reason for concealment.
The publio are bound to know about
it sooner or later. Loans cannot be
negotiated altogether in the dark, and
while the financial statements of the
province have been noteworthy in late
years for what they have not contained, there is enough in them to suggest that a trip to the money market
is due. Nobody was deceived by the
announcement that the premier was
going tu London to try his magic influence in behalf of our municipalities.
He can no more affect the attitude of
the money lenders toward Canadian
municipalities than can the plainest
citizen of this country. They are not
going to buy our bonds because Sir
Richard asks them to buy, but because they believe it will profit them
to do so.

Starting a Creamery
In a recent bulletin published by
the dairy department of the University of Nebraska, the question ot how
to raise money to start a creamery
is discussed as follows:
The most satisfactory way of raising the money ii for .each member to
sign an agreement and to be jointly
responsible fnr the' amount borrowed.
When such an agreement ia signed by
a goodly number of responsible farmers, tlie money can generally be secured at a reasonable rate of interest
and wilh Ihis money a creamery can
be erected and equipped. As soon aB
the creamery begins operation, arrangements can be made for a deduction of on.-* i*'- Ito cents per pound
ot butter, to go Into a sinking fund
out of which .ue .iei>t Is paid. The
payment is so gradual that the farmer hardly notices lt. This plan has
the advantage of requiring each patron to pay exactly In proportion to
the amount of butter manufactured
for him.

The Submarine Violin
The navy department has adopted
a submarine violin for the transmission of messages between submarine
torpedo boats and shore stations or
other vesseis. Exhaustive testa of
the aparatus have been made in a
submarine at Hampton Roads, Va.,
and three sets of the signal device
have beep ordered on aa many vea-
The mechanism is an adaption of
the violin. From one side of the
submarine project two steel stays.
From the ends of these la stretched
taut a piano wire. Touching the
wire la the roughened rim of a wheel
which, when it revolves, sets up vibrations in the wire. The wheel Is
controlled by a motor Inside the hull
of the submarine and the motor, in
turn, la controlled by a Morse Key.
When the key ls pressed the motor
begins to revolve, tbe exterior wheel
sciaplng the wire precisely as a bow
agitates a violin string. The hull of
the submarine acts as a sounding
board. Tbe key is used precisely aa
an ordinary Morse key and dots and
dashes are hummed on the wire as
the key ls released. About eight
words per minute Is the be'st speed so
far attained.
The receiving apparatus Is the ordinary telephone receiver. The end
under water may be connected by Insulated wires to a fort, shore station
or another vessel.
The experiments at Hampton Roads
showed that the vibrations may be
heard clearly at a distance of five
mllea. Naval officers believe that the
device can be perfected bo that the
range of the mechanism may be greatly extended.
Christian Berger, an Australian, Is
the Inventor of the submarine violin.
He attempted to get the Australian
Government to make testa of lt, but
failed. Coming to" the United States
he succeeded In convincing the Navy
Department officials of the practicability of the scheme.
The signal ia a simple device and
does not get cut of order easily. It
is available at all depths. It is expected to add not only to the ease of
communication with submarines operating in harbors or In close proximity
to war vessels in time of war, but
will aid materially to the safety of
the men who go down in submarines

Water In the Farmer's House
One of the features of life on the
farm most dreaded by visitors from
the city la the traditional absence of
a convenient and ample water supply
and of the privilege ot the real bath.
There was a time When lt was
thought Impossible to supply these
conveniences. But as the comforts
of civilization have spread and sanitary engineers have given their attention to the subject, lt has been
found entirely practicable, and not
excessively expensive, to lnstal ln the
farm homes almost Identically the
same appliances aB are now found ln
the homes of the city.
The most popular type of country
water supply is the air pressure system. It ls quite simple, consisting
of a specially constructed steel airtight tank, the size most commonly
used being about thirty inches ln diameter by eight feet ln length; a force
pump either hand or power propelled
and an air pump for furnishing the
pressure, and the necessary pipe connections with the source of water supply—either well, spring, cistern, lake
or stream—and with the bathroom and
kitchen ot the home. Sometimes the
system Is extended to the barn and
other outbuildings and to tanks ln the

While it is impossible to give an accurate estimate on the cost of such

depth ot the well, distance from the
house and all the other details, It
would be Bate to Bay that such an

Tickling a Shark
Tickling a shark In order to make
the fish amenable to capture ls a singular practice among the natives of
the Island of Tahiti. A writer ln the
New York Sun, who watched the hazardous sport while seated In a Canoe
manned by two natives thus describes
Peering Into the clear water, where
you can see to a depth of four or five
fathoms, you catch a glimpse far down
among the sea ferns and coral cups
ot the long, lithe tail of a shark, and
ot a huge pectoral fin that sways continually with a aldewlse motion, and
sends up little ripples to the surface.
The native diver picks up a coll
of cocoanut fibre with a sllpnose already tied ln it, seines a knife ln his
teeth, and quietly Blips into the water. It Is done with wonderful skill.
The native keeps close to the reef and
lets himself down through the water
by means of the sea growths till he
Is right over the waving tail. Slowly
a black hand stretches out, and starling behind the pectoral fin, begins to
run his hand along the bod) of the
shark and the fin sways more rapidly.
Again tho hand moves forward, and
as It strokes the fish, the other hand
leaves the slipknot hanging loosely
near the spread ot the tail. Then the
native comes quietly to the surface,
and the spectator breathes freely
again. The sail Is set, the steersman
takes his place on the outrigger, and
the diver in the bow, with a yell of
Hula, pulls hard on the rope.
On the occasion that I speak of, the
shark eplashed about in wild frenzy
fur a moment or two, and then settled
down to a tour of the lagoon, Twice
he circled about, and the canoe plowed along, with the water bubbling and
frothing it the bow where the keen-
eyed native Intently watched the
tightening rope. Suddenly it slackened and the diver went over the
side like a flash, with a knife in his
hand. A minute later the siirfa-o
of the water was a brilliant r..l sin-1
the native was scrambling back Into
tht canos. Wo towed the shai-.t to
the beach and measured him. He
was sixteen feet long.

The Mc-t Modest of Men
Abraham Lincoln felt deeply tho re
sponsibllKy that rested on him as
president of the United States, but
he shrank from assuming any of tbe
honors, or even the titles of his position.
After years ot Intimate acquaintance, public man testified shortly after Mr. Lincoln's death that he could
not recall a single Instance In which
he spolto of himself as president, or
used that title for himself, except
be acted In an official capacity.
He always spoke of his position nad
office vaguely, as this place, here, or
ln other modest phrase. Once,
speaking of .he room at tho Capltol
used by tlio president of the United
States at the close of a session of
congreaB, he said: That room, you
knowi that they call—dropping his
voice and hesitating—the president's
To an Intimate friend who addressed him always by his own proper title,
he said: Now call me Lincoln, and
I'll promise not to tell of the breach
of etiquette—If you won't— and 1 shall
have a resting spell from Mr. President.
All persons agree that the most
marked characteristic of Mr. Lincoln's manners wns his simplicity and
arlli-ssncBs, but Ills native dignity
never forsook him, and with all his
angularities and disregard of conventionalities distinguished foreigners
were invariably impreasod by his fine

. FoMhe Earache
- I am afraid I have greatly Interfered
with my own practice, said a celebrated aurlst, by giving the following advice to many of my frleuils: At the
first symptoms ot earache, let the patient lie oa the bed with the painful
ear uppermost. Fold a thick towel
and tuck lt around the neck; then
with a teaspoon fill the ear with warm
water. Continue doing this for fifteen or twenty minutes; the water
will fill the ear orifice and flow over
the head, let the water run out, and
plug the ear with warm glycerin and
cotton. This may be done every
hour until relief is obtained. It ls
an almost Invariable cure and has
saved many cases ot acute liiflama-
tlon. The water should be quite
warm, but not too hot.
They Are Due to an Impoverished
Condition of the Blood
Ne:vous exhaustion—or neurasthenia, as medical men call It- -Is one
of rhe greatest evils of the present
day, for lt ls destroying the life and
energy of thousands of men and women, or worse, driving them to Insanity. The causes of this trouble include overwork, mental strain, worry,
Indiscretions, and sometimes it follows
la grippe. The signs of this trouble
are usually great weakness after any
exertion, nervous headaches, trembling
hands, shakiness In the legs, Irritability of temper, weak digestive power,
Insomnia. The life ot tbe sufferer become   full of miseries.     *
The true treatment for this trouble
must co-isist of a building up process,
for the al-ve signs mean that the
exhausted nerves are calling for more
nourishment from the blood supply.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make new
rich blood that feeds the starved complaining nerves, and ln this way they
have cure., thousands of times neurasthenia, neuralgia and other nervous
disorders, and have restored strength
and nerve-energy to despairing people.

gives thanks for having been restored
to health through the use of this medicine, she says: "When I began using
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills 1 was a nervous wreck; I couldi.'t do my work,
could not sleep at night, suffered from
nervous headaches, and the least
noise would completely upset ine.
Only those who have suffered from
nervous trouble can tell what 1 endured. I doctored for a time, but
did not get any benefit. Then I
learned of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and sent for a half dozen boxes. By
the time I had used these I was almost well, and a couple more boxes
completely restored my health, and I
have had no return of the Trouble.
I can cheerfully recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla to those win suffered

Saskatchewan Man Tells How They

Suffering from Backache and Other
Forms of Kidney Disease.
St. Phillips, Sask.—(Special)—In a

and Impure water are among the difficulties to be su.-mounted, kidney
trouble li prevalent. It la the kidneys, the organs that strain the Impurities out ot the blood, that flrst
feel any undue strain on the body.
Consequently, Dodd's Kidney PIUs
bave been well tried and tested ln
this neighborhood.
They have stood the test. Many
settlers tell of backache, rheumatism
and urinary troubles cured by Dodd's
Kidney Pills. Mr. Otto Olckewskl
Is one of these. In speaking of his
cure he says:
"I suffered from kidney disease for
four ninths. My back ached, I had
heart flutterlngs, and was always tired
and nervous. My skin had a harsh,
dry feeling; my limbs were heavy;
and I had a dragging sensation across
tho loins.
"1 consulted a doctor, but, as I did
not appear to Improve, I decided to
try Dodd's Kldne.- Pills. I used six

The women of Sherbrooke who
cheered Harry K. Tbaw showed ex
ceedingly poor taste, to use a mild
phrase of censure. Although
Mr. Thaw possesses great wealth, be
is no better tban a common murderer. He is the slayer ot Stanford
White, one of New York's ablest
professional men. Mr. White was
an architect of national fame. He
left behind bim in New York many
monuments in tbe form of public
buildings and works of art. His
moral character was not blameless,
but he was worth a thousand
Thaws to his countrymen.
President Wilson's Mexican policy
appears to be satisfactory to his
countrymen, as well as to tbe rest
of the world. It is likely to biing
about peace in Mexico without tbe
necessity of annexing that country
to tbe giant American republic. It
shows that the United States bas all
the territory she wants, and incidentally the true wickedness of tbe
annexation scare started in Canada
a sbort time ago.

A certain captain bsd heen lecturing his new recruits at some length
on "Tbe Duties of a Soldier" At

to find out just what he had accomplished.
Casting his eye over Ihe room, he
fixed on Private Murphy as his first

The private scratched hig head

New Rifle Sight a Boon to Hunters
Brainerd, Minn.—Recent trials malo
by A. H. Porach and Frel Brlttou
with the Remington Arms Company's
new negative angle Bight 'have proven
quite satisfactory, aays the Dally Dispatch. Using a target two feet wide
ai.d three teet high with a six inoh
bulls eye, each ot these men flred
eighty shots at the several ranges for
which the light ls intended, and scoped eighty hits eacb wbich, had tha
target been a deer, would bave made
a kill ln eacb Instance. Groups ot
live shots were made ln Several Instances within a space that could hava
been been covered with a twenty-five
cent piece.
When the fact that the conditions
under which these men made their
trials were most aggravating, ls considered, there being a strong wind ot
varying velocity blowing across tbe
line of fire, the results obtained are
admittedly most remarkable.
These men have proven to'their satisfaction that the Remington negative
angle sight is a success lt use! as It
Is intended to be used. It ls a good
sight for the man who shoots a rifle
only occasionally and who Is therefore
rather unfamiliar with the judging of
distances and the adjusting of sights
to the distance estimated. Practice
with a rifle on a fixed target should
be Indulged ln by all hunters before
going into the woods in order to familiarize themselves with the gun they
expect to use and it more practice
were Indulged In by hunters before going to the woods there would be a
larger percentage of UIIIb made with
a lower percentage ot accidents.
The sight has not yet heen placed
on the nm.-ket.

Pipe Stemt
It seems curious to reflect, ln view
ot the universal use of vulcanite as
pipe* mouthpieces, that tbls material
was quite unknown a few years ago.
Prepared, as everybody knows, trom
India-rubber, It is undoubtedly the
most durable and serviceable material pipe mouthpieces. For many years
these were made from tho vulcanite
run Into moulds while hot, and afterwards trimmed and polished. A very
great improvement was effected, Baya
the Cigar and Tobacco World, wben
it was discovered tbat a mucb harder
and better article, and one capable
of taking a higher polish, could be
produced by cutting from the solid
block of vulcanite. The so-called
block ta a Blab ot about four feet by
two feet and 1-2 inch or 3-4 Inch In
thickness. These slabs are flrst cut
by fine circular saws into narrow
strips of tbe required slzei sub-divided as to length, turned ln the lathe,
trimmed by flies/bored and finally
polished in readiness to be affixed to
lho pipes. A little heat carefully
applied Is all that Is necessary for
bending vulcanite.

In the public laicized schools refuse
to wear this symbol of their bond (a

married women In France who wear
no wedding ring at all—a terrible heresy Indeed, ln the eyes of some Anglo-
Saxons. The French wedding ring,
the author adds, la generally made In
two parts, the wife wearing one and
the husband the other, both rings being blessed at the altar when tbere la

Ferry Acrota Panama Cant!
Paradoxical though lt seems, tha
flrst task for the army engineers after
they have succeeded In severing the

re-establish the connection: It It necessary tbat communication by rail be
retained unimpaired between the
north and south banka of the canal,
especially It .he railway systems of
North and South America are to be
linked -o as to afford unbroken connection between New York am'. Buenos Aires. Bridges high enougb above
the canal to permit of the passage ot
ocean-going vessels with their lofty
masts, are out of tbe question, while
a plan to tunnel under tbe canal haa
been abandoned because of the great
cost. Finally tba decision hat luclln

I'i'uuliine look a long breath and
tinned ou after ber brother nnd hit
wife, who were chatting wltb tbe
guide. After tbe rough climbing ot

heavenly. But even tbls icspllo did

of the long tailed deer, so blgh among
the peaks that rapid work wna misery,
bud heen very bad. The tbree daya'
chase for a snap at tbe black wolf bad
been worse, uud It ended In failure.
But this chase for a mountain sheep
wns trying Penelope beyond endurance.
•'It's easy for Alice," thought poor
Penelope, digging ber staff viciously
Into n crevice. "She's like a bundle of
steel wires. She lures to get up before
daylight and crawl half a mile on ber
bauds nnd knees to wait at a spring
for some silly beast to come for a
drink. But I'm Just wui-u out Alicel
The tbree enthusiasts ahead turned

Arthur looked at Penelope tn dismay.
"But dou't you wunt to see n mountain
sheepV" he coaxed. "Since tbe black
tailed deer were In the river bottom
this mornlug the sheep are sure to be
up here. Just tblnk, Penelope, one of
those curious, rare mountain sbeep!"
Hut even this vision failed to move
bis sister. She shook her hend. Alice
gave a resigned little slgb.
"I'll Btay with you, Penelope," ahe
"Xo, you won't," said Arthur hastily.
"It's not safe. Two women are no
better than une bere."
Here the guide Interposed. He bad
been with tbem but a day, but already,
besides being tbelr guide, be was their
counselor nnd friend. He was too well
bred to be treated otherwise. Penelope
looked nt (be stalwart, heavily bearded fellow In a troubled way. His resemblance to Dick lu spite of tbe
beard wns startling.
"Now, I tell you, Mr. Seymour," he
said, "you know us mucb ubout tbls
business ns I do, nud yuu tell me you
bave been up this trail half a duzen
timet before.   Wby can't 1 stay bere
wltb your sister, fix np camp for the

"Good, good!" exclaimed- Seymnre.
Mrs. Seymore looked a little dubious,
but.Penelope spoke eagerly. Here was
a cbance fur an hour or twu of rest

"It will only be s couple of hours,"
sbe suhl pleadingly. "You will be back

The little plateau on wblcb the colloquy bail tnken place wns smooth and
vide, wltb n little spring trickling out
of tho great wnll uf tbe mountain.
Penelope sat quietly watching the distant peaks In the afternoon light while
the guide set abuut bis preparation for

The guide straightened himself and

Without knowing why. alio added,
"It wns tome oue who wns very dear

"And now?" tnld the guide tentatively.

"Will you lie perfectly still wbile I
get th* rope!" called tbe guide. "For
heaven's sake, don't morel" And tbe
face disappeared, leaving Penelope
alone witb tha blue above and tbe fur
circling of an eagle about tbe crags.
Then a rope with a carefully adjust-
el Blip noose dangled beside ber. "Caa
you put It over yuur bead and under
your arms?" tbe guide called. "For
my sake, Penelope, be careful! And
look up nt me all the time. Don't louk
dowu Into tbe canyon."
Too bruised nnd shaken to be sur-
prised, Penelope took tbe noose wllb
trembling fingers nnd tried to disentangle herself from tbe brush wblcb
bad broken ber fall. Slowly, Inch by
Inch, with pain at every motion, she
raised herself to a Bitting position,
then little by little adjusted the nooso
under her arms to the guide's satisfaction.
"Now," he colled, "I'm going to lower your staff to you, and you must keep
yourself from brushlug tbe wnll by
means of It aa I pull yon np."
Tbe fear and misery of that trip
back to tbe plateau Penelope waa uever to forget The rope cut Into ber

warding herself from ihe wall wltb
her alpenstock forced her to keep ber

she wat pulled upward fur a few feet;
then a pause, while the rope twisted

dampness uf stone within an inch ot
her face, then another violent Jerk upward.
Aa abe paused within a foot or so of
the plateau level she closed ber eyea
and dropped ber staff. Tben n pair of
arms lifted ber slowly, tenderly, and
laid her on tbe ground, tben carefully
removed the ropo.
Penelope opened her eyes. "Dickl"

"Are you hurt?" asked tbe guide un-

brilliant or worth remembering. Thit
would lead some to think that because of thit old laying someone
sometime actually did tet the river
on fire, or else it would lead ut to be-,
litve that it originated with a pessimist who believed big deeds were impossible.
Aa a matter ol tact this laying,
when it originated, had nothing whatever to do with a river. The original
laying was: "He will never tet the

had to be thoroughly ailted before *it
could be used.
Sometimes a very energetic person
sifting a lot of flour in one ot these
old-time, well-dried sieves or "temse"
would revolve it to rapidly that the
friction would cause it to smoke and
perhaps begin to burn a little on the
When people were speaking ot an
unusually lazy or worthiest sort ol
man they would say jokingly: "He
will never set the 'temse' on fire,"
meaning that he waa too lazy to put
enough energy Into aitting flour to
make the sitter or "temse" catch fire.
Thia laying originated in England,
and aa everyone knows, the great
river there is the Thames, which is
pronounced exactly the tame as
"temse." So that's how it happened.
"He will never set the 'temse' on
fire" was easily changed by later
generations who knew nothing ol the
ancient sifter to "He will never set
the 'Thames' on fire"* and the final
twist became "He will never set the
river on fire."
Automatic Dittreti Signal.
Scientists and persons engaged in
or connected with seafaring are greatly interested by the announcement ot
Raymond Phillips, an English inventor, that he lias perfected an instrument which may revolutionize methods of sending distress signals at sea.
Mr. Phillips calls the new apparatus the wireless harmonophone.
When used to transmit a signal ot
distress the liarmonoplione, according
to the Inventor, sets tu operation a
siren, which can be heard all over a.
ship of any size whatever.
Tne action of the harmonophone In
releasing the valve ol the siren is
automatic, and no attendant therefore
is necessary.
A peculiar feature of the Apparatus
is that signsls sent by it take precedence over ail other wireless mej-
tagei, for it cuts ott ail messages be-'
ing received by any vessel within it*
Thus, regardless ol whether any
ship's-wireless is working, the siren
will receive the distress tigntl trom
another ship in misfortune and mak*
it known immediately.
The mechanism ot the invention It
a tecret, known only to the inventor,
but tests have shown that Mr. Phil-
lip* undoubtedly hat perfected an
instrument ot incalculable value.
Mr. Phillips is an electrical engineer, and the wireless harmonophone
it not the flrtt of hit inventions to
attract public notice.
King at Woolwich.
Apropos ot the recent royal visit to
Woolwich, it it interesting to recall
that probably tha flrtt vitit ot the
present King to the neighborhood ot
Woolwich wss tbat which he paid
to the new Wtrspite as a boy ol twelve
in 1877. The old training ship hsd
been burnt a tew years earlier, and
Prince Oeorge, with bis brother, the
Duke ol Clarence, and their father,
went down to tee the new ship and
signed their ntmet in the booh.
Woolwich it really the cradle of th*
British navy, and dates its rise to
importance at a dockyard from tb*
launohing of the Oreat Harry in 1512.
It waa under the Government ol tht
iamout Peter and Christopher Pett, lo
tba reigns ol Janet I. and tht
Charles's, that Woolwich came to
rank for a while at premier arsenal
