Smelter and Mines Earned
Over a Million Dollars
,  Last Fiscal Tear
message through a medium which
few, if any, can resist.—Victoria
Advices from New York state
that tbe preliminary report of tbe
Gianby Consolidated company fnr
tbe fiscal year ended June 30, 1913,
show that profits from the Grand
Forks smelter and the Pboenix
mines amounted to $1,-207.661, of
which the sum of $(49,955 were
disbursed to shareho'dcrs since divi-
dtnds were resumed recei tly.
TheBe figures are subject lo minor
corrections by tbe final statement to
be submitted at the anoual stockholders' meeting October 7. The
earnings for July and August will
show some shrinkage, due to low
cupper prices and somewhat smaller
reuoveiies, but lbe total for tbe year
will reach approximately $1,250,-
000, it is believed, as compared
witb $1600,000 for the previous
twelve month period.
In a circular letter to the stockholders, which will be mailed with
the dividend cheque, for the second
quarterly disbursement on September 5, President W. D. Niohols has
included tbe major part of tbe engineer's reports on the Hidden Creek
properties, compiled recently, that
they may be kept in toucb with
the work there.
"C instruction work is progress
ing with remarkable rapidity," says
President Nichols. "Inspection from
August 3 to August 10 shows tbat
the ground for tbe buildings at Hid
den Creek is all cleared; steel frame
for main smelter building erected;
foundations for the flue chamber
completed; the machine shop fin
.shed and operating, and smelter
warehouse being erected. Tbe mine

How inadequately does that meager announcement do justice lo the

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ruckle arrived in the city tbis afternoon from
Michigan to attend the funeral of
the late Edward Ruckle, which will
be beld next Sunday. Mr. Ruckle

Rev. Charles W. King, of the
Grand Forks Baptis- church, when
in Nelson last week, addressed the
mid-week service of his former
charge. On the eve of ber departure for this city, Mrs. King was
presented with a silver-mounted um
brella by the Ladies' Aid as a parting remembrance.
Interested audiences listened lo
the addresses of Rev. Charles W.
HueniiB, of the Lord's Day alliance,
last Sunday. Mr. Hueslis spoke
in four of thp five Protestant
churches of Grand Forks, ami was
well pleasad with the practical inter
est shown, also with the growing respect for the one rest day in seven
law in this section of the country.
He noted witb pleasure that the
Granby smelter, although a "con
tinuous industry," with an unusual
amount of "necessary labor," bad
reduced to almost a minimum Sunday work, also that the Grand Forks
druggists bad recently signed an
agreement to keep closed on Sundays, excepting for the sale of medi

Mr. Huestis is field secretary for
western Conada and is at present
completing a tour of the chief points
in tbis part of British Columbia.
He spoka in the Anglican (Saint
Saviour's) and tbe Methodist
churches Sunday morning, and in
tbe Presbyterian in the evening. In
the Baptist church an afternoon
mass meeting was held, Where representatives of all tbe churches, including five ministers, were present,
and all of whom took pari in the
program. In tbe absence of Mayor
Fripp, wbo was away from tbe city'
but sent a letter of regret at bis ab
sence from tbe meeting, Rev. C. W.
King presided and Rev. Henry
Steele read tbe Scripture lesson from
St. Luke's gospel, Revs. McKee and
Barlow led in prayer, and Rev. Ha-
men spoke a few words of apprecia
tion of Mr. Huestis' practical message.
Tbe speaker of the day referred
to some of the difficulties, in connection with the Lord's day observance. The alliance which be represented bad to confront with consid
erahle unclear thinking on theques
tion and mistaken ideas as to what
the alliance sought to do! Many
considered the aliiance simply a
deep laid scheme on tbe part of the
churches to "get people to heaven
by act of parliament." The speaker
would be sorry to be engaged in any
such foolish attempt as tbat.
Tbe alliance, he declared, existed
for one thing only, and that was to
keep Sunday as a rest day for the
people of Canada; and, in cases
where men were employed in on-
tinous ent'-rprises and transports
lion, to see as far as possible that
they secured one rest day in seven.
How people used that day, he said,
was a matter the alliance could not
and would not interfere with, as be-
ing a question to be settled hy private conscience and public sentiment.
Mr. Huestis spoke of the lack of
interest people showed in what Ihey
really considered matters of supreme
importance, such as the circulation
of the sacred Scriptures and the preservation of the Sabbath; nnd he ac
counted for tbe paradox by suggesting tbat most of the people tonk it
for granted that these things look
after themselves.   John Morley, the

cording to the opinion of the chief
authorities, this condition waB due
simply to the fao that life is too

The West Yale Review in a recent issue tells nf the operations of
McArthur Brothers in and around
Hope since they were awarded the
contract of building the Coquihalla
section of the Vancouver, Victoria

With This Week's Dividend
the (iranby Has Returned
$33.50 Per Share
The directors of the Granby Consolidated bave declared a dividend
of \\ per cent on tbe par value of
stock outstanding, wbich is similar
to the dividends declared in March
a id June of this year, and reflects
lhe continued prosperity of the big
smelting industry in this city.
Tbe disbursement calls for the division among stockholders of $224,-
465 and was payable September 2
to shareholders of record August 16.
With this dividend payment tbe
Granby bas retnrned to stockholders a total of $(,699, Ho0 since organization, whicb is equivalent to
$33 50 a share on the stock at its
present par value.
In 1903 Granby paid an initial
dividend of 10 cents per share on
the 1,336,800 $10 shares then outstanding; and iu 1906 it disbursed
four 30 cent dividends on 1,350,000
shares. Immediately thereafter it
issued 135,000 shares, par $100, in
exchange for the 1,350,000 shares,
on the basis of one for ten. It paid
$9 a share on the new stock in 1907,
$1 in 1908, $2 in 1909, fl in 1910,
and so far in 1913 has paid $4 50 a
share. Tbe $1.30 it paid in all,
while the stock was /10 par, therefore, was equivalent to $13 a share
on the present stock.
After its uew Hidden Creek smelter is in operation, which means
from the beginning of next year,
Granby Bhould produce 45,000,000
pounds of eopper annually at a cost
of 9 cents. On the 15-cent metal
market it should earn at least $15 a
share annually on tbe 165,000 shares
it will have outstanding after all its
issued bonds have been converted
into stock.—Boston Commercial.

Should Know the Law
The hunting season opened on
Monday, and as some confusion still
exists as to tbe new regulations in
force this year, we give the following synopsis of the law as It interests local sportsmen:
All persons carrying firearms,
whether hunting or not, must display a badge, which is given when
purchasing a bunting license. For
bunting birds and deer the charge iB
$2 50; for larger game, fb; for trap
ping, $10. These fees only apply
to residents of tbe province. No
license can he issued to a boy under
16, without an undertaking by his
parent that be will be under supervision. If any one allows another to
use his badge, hoth the owner and
the user are liable to a minimum
line of $50, and tbe license may be
runi.-t-.lli.il and new licenses refused.
A farmer's license to bunt on his
own land is it-sin-d free, but does not
entitle the owner to hunt off his
land. No deer or birds may be
hunted between one hour after sunset and one hour before sunrise. No
deer may be hunted with dogs. No
person may bave in hie possession
o repeating pump or automatic shot
gun, hut this does not apply to repeating or automatic rifles or pis
tols. Free miner's licenses only entitle wbile actually prospecting,
and then only in open season, in an
organized district such as this. To
any one, whether an officer or not,
giving information of an offence,
the magistrate may award half the
fine inflicted.

erect a building, in which they will

had a lot of questions that he wanted

A research student, Mlsa Dletz, work-

Professor Dexter gathered a number

The Best Cover for Soldiers
Experiments have been made In
Europe to determine what color in
a soldier's uniform ls the least conspicuous to an enemy. Of 10 men,
two were dreBsed ln light gray uniforms, two ln greeu, two In dark blue,
and two ln scarlet. All were then ordered to march off, while a group of
officers remained watching.
Surprising as It may seem, the first
to disappear were the scarlet. Then
followed the dark gray, wbile the dark
blue and green remained visible after
the others had disappeared, snys an
exchange. Experiments tn firing at
blue and red targets, according to
the same, experiments, proved that
blue could be more easily seen at a

Youth In Germany
The well-known publicist, M. Au-
dre Francois Poncet, has just been
making ah elaborate inquiry Into tbe
mental status and spiritual outlook of
the youth of Germany, and f.nds, according to his conclusions published
in L'Oplnlon, that 'the German university youth of today ls, broadly
speaking, neither alert nor wide-awake, nor keenly interested in contemporary questions. He reads lit
tie, observes little; he Is stolid, Belt-
satisfied, without foresight, Ignorant.
He is at the beck and call ot the
forces which rule the country. Upon
It the military state rests—It la one of
the pillars on which It raises Us tiler-
archlal edifice.
The writer considers that the young
men of the university form a caste
whicli Is closely linked with the casta
of the army.
The student Imitates the lieutenant
He adopts Ills stiff carriage, his restrained walk. He wears his mustache ln the same way; he bows with
the same click of the heels. This unl-
verBlty cas.e ls also a devout supporter of the Government, and of the Government not as representing some
principle or other, but simply as such.
There Is, he goes on, Iii the German
nature, I will not say a naCural servility, but an Inborn tendency to obedience, an Inveterate respect for power.
The youth of the unlverslty_ghares the
sentiments with the majority, but
other consideration- enter Into hts attitude. The attachment of the student and also of t. lie professors to
the Government Is due ro doubt to a
sincere conviction that on It the national greatness depends. But this
conviction ls further strengthened by
the knowledge ot the advantages to
be found In subBervlant to the powers that be. The cry of the stomach
(sic) Is In harmony with the cry ot
the heart.
Among the German students ls
fouud no trace of the Intellectual measles, which seizes on the young
Frenchman—au Englishman for that
matter—In the flrBt year of university
life, and passes off ln a harmless,
even salutary, eruption of red ties.
The writer's conclusion Is; The youth
of Germany today does not resemble
the young man of 1880. He does
not march In the vanguard toward
a future of liberty and consolation. He
bends his neck to the yoke, and does
not find lt galling.

Advice for Hot Weather '"
For those much concerned about
the excessively hot weather the following advice by Assistant Surgeon Gen.
W: C. Pucker, of the U.S.A. Army
will be useful.
First of all being cool is largely a
condition ot mind. One who wants
to keep cool Bhould make up his mind
to be still—ln other words not to produce heat. Heat is caused by burning of the human tissues, and the
tissues are burned by action or movement.
One Bhould avoid meats lu hot weather; should eat cooked vegetables
and avoid green fruits because they
upset the digestion and invite intestinal attacks. Of course every human
has to produce a certain amount of
heat, but there Is a science tn getting
rid ot this heat that Ib little known to
the average man. Ventilation of
clothing and ot offices removes the
heat thut envelopes the body.
Another thing; Don't eat or drink
anything with whose family history
you are not acquainted. Patronize
only restaurants ot known cleanliness
for opportunlllea for the spread of
disease through water und food are
lncreused enormously In warm weather,
Asthma Is Torture. No one who
hasn't gusped for breath In thc power
of asthma knows what such suffering
Is. Thousands do know, however,
from experience how immeasurable la
the relief provided by that marvelloua
preparation,) r J. D. Kellogg*B Asthma Remedy. For years lt has beei,
relieving and curing the most severe •
cases. If you are a sufferer do not
delay a day in securing this remedy
from your druggist.
Taught Scholars to Smoke
Although Lord Methu-n flnda tha
habit of smoking on the Increase
among women, It is not so prevolent
among children as it used to be. According to John Ashton, under Charlea
I, lt waB not only usual for womea
to Join the men In smoking, but ln
Worcestershire the children went to
school with pipes In their satchels,
and the schoolmaster called a halt la
their studies while they all smoked
and he taught the neophyte. Thomas Hearne records that Ir. the time ot

Often It Seems to Uphold the Old
Theory that Oppoaitea Attract
Men like all kinds ot women. There
are ugly men who adore beautiful women, but there are also handsome men
who worship t.t the shrines of women
who are quite unlike Helen ot Troy.
Many good men have loved, aud will
lore, bad vomen. Who has not seen
bad men devoted to saintly women?
On the other hand the dwarf ls often
captivated by the large framed woman whose head approaches the celling. I have known deaf women beloved by talkative men; lame women
cherished by men who were agile;
stupid women thought sensible, or
even clever, by men who were brilliant
and affected women solemnly admired
by the most natural of men; girls who
turned the heads of grandfathers and
old women who lured mere boys to
their feet.
Effeminate men often seek manny
women, while delicate wom*.n who
lever leave the sofa attract tlie nim-
rods and the bunter ot big game. The
man who does not know 'God Save the
King' when lie hears It aB often as
not marries the woman who is mad
about Wagner, and the man who never
goes to church chooses as his helpmate the devout woman who visits a
district and teaches ln Sunday school.
All klLds of women are liked—nay,
more, are loved by men. Why not?
For where ls the man who cannot find
one woman—lt not two—to think him
what he probably thinks himself, the
most perfect man In the world—until
the honeymoon Ib waning?

Quaint Manx Laws
Many quaint and curious customs
dating from ancient times ara atlll
observed ln the Isle of Man, and not
the least Interesting of these ls the
ceremony that will be enaoted today
on Tynwald Hill. Men, women and
children from all oyer the llttlo Island ot the Irish Sea will gather on
th3 hillside and listen to the official
Manx laws. For centuries this archaic legal ceremony has been carried
out on each fifth of July.-except when
that date falls on a Sunday, and lt
atlll retains most of the novel features that make lt the most interesting
observance of its kind, to be witnessed
anywhere in the world.
It ls no longer possible to read all
the laws that govern Manxmen, since
the House ot Keys, as the local legislation ls called, is busy In adding
new statutes as similar bodies elsewhere.
A Manx law that ls no longer enforced, but which retains a place ln
the statute book, provides a penalty
of $50 and the loss of both cars for
anyone guilty of libelling the law-
makers. The death penalty was
long imposed for the theft ot any
amount above thirteen cents, while a
flogging was the punishment for
stealing a lesser Bum. An exception
was made ln the caBe of horse and
cattle thlevers for lt was set forth
that, as-they could not hide such animals, their act waa more foolish than
Hall Cain?, whose youth was spent
In the Isle of Man, has described
many of the interesting customs of

years, however, the inhabitants have
shed some of their peculiarities, owing to contact with tourists.
How Insects Breathe
All Insects need air, even those
that lire ln water, but uo Insect has
nostrils, or any opening ln the head
through which lt breathes. Instead
there ls a row of small openings called spiracles, down each side of the
body, one on each segment beginning
with the second or third segment of
the thorax, or chest and extending
back to the tip ot the abdomen. The
spiracles open Into two air-tubes that
extend the length of the Insect. One
on eaeh side, Just within the wall of
the body. These tubes are connected
ln the thorax by two cross-tubesrnnd
from them smaller tubes <'*.verge.
Theso in -turn divide and redlvlde,
growing constantly smaller, until the
finest tubes permeate every part of
the Insect, even the tips of the antennae and the joints ot the feet. The
tubes are known as trachne, and serve
the same purpose that the lungs serve
ln the vertebrates; to carry oxygen
to the blood and tissues. The outer
openings or spiracles are protected ln
various ways—as for example, by a
circlet of hairs—ln order to prevent
the admission of anything except air.
If they become clogged by any such
substance as oil or grease, the insect
suffocates, says an exchange. The
humming of gnat, the buzzing of files,
and similar sounds, are produced by
the vibration of the air lu the spiracles and trachae:

Biggest Surveying Job's
Two of the biggest Jobs of surveying
ever attempted are the marking of the
boundary between Alaska and Canada,
Which has Just been completed, and
the marking ot the southern boundary
ot Canada, whioh ls now ln progress.
Both surveys are ot a difficult nature,
and the Alaskan boundary partlculary
so because ot the mountainous and, ln
parts, inaccessible character of the
reglona traversed.
The most difficult part of the line
was that starting at Mount St. Ellas,
on the southern shore of the peninsula
of Alaska, and running southeast along
eighty-three peaks of the coast, range
to the head of the Portland channel,
a distance of about 700 miles. Much
of this section of the boundary was Inaccessible, and could only be reached
where lt was crossed by Inlets connected with the sound that parallels
From these points the
peaks that mark the boundary, as well
as the topography along the line, were
located and mapped by trlangulatlon
and photo-surveying methods.
The line running north from Mount
St. Ellas to the Arctic ocean was not
ao difficult of a-cess, although lt lies
over glaciers and some ot the highest
mountains In the world, but the work
of marking was in many ways more
like Arctic exploration than an ordinary Job of surveying. This line runs
due north and south, following the
141st meridian (longitude west from
Greenwich), and Is now marked by
188 stone monuments set about three
miles apart. Everything had to be
packed from the base of supplies, and
tor this purpose 200 Amerttans and
Canadian horses were used. The total length of the Alaskan boundary Is
1,507 miles, and the cost of surveying
lt was $1,500,000.

The Belgian Congo Cannibals
From Huwl to Malange ls perhaps
eight hundred miles as the crow files,
but being pedestrians and as the cannibals were carrying oh extremely active warfare in the country traversed
by the direct route, for safety, *we had
to make a long detour that added almost two hundred miles to our trip.
That waB in July, 1907, and we had
reached the most westerly ot the Katanga mines at Ruwl with the Intention
of proceeding directly west to Angola.
The southwest corner ot the Congo
was, at that time, a veritable hot-bed
of cannibalism and slaving. All captives that the cannibals did not eat
they sold to the Portuguese.
Such conditions had prevailed for
many years, and the chances ot Improvement Boemed extremely small.
A few months later, however, the Com-
pagnie Kasaal, an Immense rubber
trading concern under the leadership
of a chief du secteur, waged war on
the cannibal Welesbl and effectively
put them to route. Only here and
there a few remain.
Seventy miles north of Lukoshl we
found a stump, quiet evidently a aort
of sacrificial altar, as lt was decorated with human skulls, mostly those
of little children. The territory in
which this was found was occupied by
the Waleshl until less than three
years ago. They were the worst
slave traders ot all the tribes ot this
section. It was very largely for their
lawlessness and absolute disregard ot
the decrees ot the Compagnle Kassal
that they were driven from the country
ln which they had operated for so
many years.
But though the Waleshl, with their
ghastly practices, were driven out, the
Bachokwce remained, and the trafflo
ln slaves continued.

causes a feeling of a special kind, or
uneasiness, accompanied with humming in the ears. Burning ln the face
ls also felt and a severe headache, also a great tendency to sleep which has
been before observed. The movements of the body are sluggish and

the work done by the South Airlcan
Union Department of Agriculture, of
which he ls chief, In solving the problem of securing a suitable wheat
ihat can be grown on dry veldts and
that itas satisfactorily solved
by the cultivation of Ihe durum
wheats. The writer gives the following Interesting details aa to the wheat.
Ripe durum wheat In the Held looks
like barley, and one Is apt, on seeing
It for the first time, to confuse It
with the latter cereal. It Is usually
fairly tall, with broad, smooth leaves,
the heads are .eavlly bearded, the
kernels large and very hard, having
less starch than the common types
and varying in color from a light to a
reddish yellow. The grain ot tho
finest durum wheat Ib large, very hard,
whitish, and slightly transparent.
Durum wheats ure grown both as
spring and winter wheats. To ensure
success they should be sown on moisture-saving fallows, and the growing
wheat should be lightly harrowed to
renew the soil-blanket and so retain
the soil-moisture until harvest time.

as an ordinary cow and are thc biggest

why 'paradise' for the fool who Bhuts
his eyes to threatening troubles and
dangers, satisfied with thc enjoyment
of the moment?
Aa a matter of fact, tha latter
phrase originated In the theological
argument that there Is a place tor
fools just outside paradise, while the
term tuft-hunting, took Its rise at the
Universities of Oxford and Cambridge,
where at one time the young noblemen were a peculiarly-formed cap
with a tuft, which presumably attracted hangers-on.
Many other curious stories ot the
origin ot popular phrases are given
In 'Everyday Phrasea Explained'
(Pearson). It Is related that 'Hob-
son's choice arose trom the fact that
Hobson, a noted carrier ln Cambridge,
would only let out his horses and
coaches for hire In rotation, refusing
to allow his customer., to choose, a
customer being compelled to take the
horse nearest the door. Thus It became customary when anything was
Eatlna humble pie Is a phrase which
really arose from the corruption of
the word 'umbles' or 'numbles,' the
coarser parts of a deer killed in hunting, which when made into a pie,
were formerly reserved for the lower
hunt servants; while cooking his
goose, ls a phrase which originated
when the King of Sweden, on approaching a hostile town, excited the
contempt of the Inhabitants by the
smallness of his army. To express
this they hung out a goose for htm
to shoot at, whereupon the king set
fire to th9 town t*> cook their goose.
Long ago unscrupulous people used
to take a cat tied In a bag to market,
where they tiled to sell lt for a pig.
If, however, a purchaser opened the
bag before buying, the cat ot course,
jumped out, displaying the fraud.
Hence the term: letting the cat out of

Advice She Tried   Dodd'a   Kidney
St. Walbuffc, Sask. (Sp.cial).—"I
can truly recommend Dodd's Kidney
Pills for tiny one suffering from rheu,
mutism." These are the words of
Mrs. W. A. Baldwin, a highly respected resident of this place. And
Mrs. Baldwin gives her reasons.
"I was nearly helpless with rheumatism for two years," sbe states. "I
got medicine f.oui the doclor, and
tried several other remedies but nothing helped me. Then ono ot my
neighbors advised me to try Dodd'a
Kidney Pills. 1 bought four boxes
and they helped almost from the first.
I have used nearly two dozen boxes
and am nearly cured."
That rheumatism Is one ot the results ot diseased kidneys ls again
shown In Mrs. Baldwin's case. She
had headaches, stiffness-, of the Joints
and backache, her sleep was broken
and unrefresbing, and she was always
tired and nervous. Her limbs swelled
and she was always thirsty. Theae
are all symptoms of diseased kidneys.
When she cured her kidneys with
Dodd's Kidney -Pills, the symptoms
vanished—and so did the rheumatism.

The Centenary of the Steam Engine
It 11 s 11 less than a hundred years
since the building of Stephensonls
'Rocket,' and there are many who
think of It as the flrst locomotive; but
lt was not, nor was Stephenson the
original Inventor of steam traction on
railways. Doubtless his genius well
deserves the fame wbich It has won,
as do s that cf Pulton and Morse; yet
lt can scarcely be disputed that all
three ot those Illustrious benefactors
of the race Cld their great works in
the successful adaptation and combination of elements which had previously
been discovered and employed by others.
The germ of the locomotive was flrst
displayed by Trevltblck, at the end of
the eighteenth century, but he lacked
the genius or the persistence to bring
It to perfection. It was left to William Hedley, chief engineer ot the
historic Wylan colliery, near Newcas-
tle-on-tyne, assisted by his colleagues,
Timothy Hackworth, to produce In
June 1813, r. practical locomotive
steam engine for use on the colliery
railroad. This epoch-making machine
which was named 'Puffing Billy,' and
ls still preserved ln the South' Kensington Museum, worked satisfactorily
and was the prototype of many others
which were widely used for fifteen
years, until in 1829 the Liverpool &
Manchester Railroad Company encouraged Stephenson to devise and build
the Rocket. The Newcastle engineer's achle/ement of just a century
ago may therefore be, regarded as the
beginning of what must rank among
the three or four most valuable and Influential mechanical inventions ln the
history of the ,/orld.

Pugnacious Fish
Many fishes like the knights of old,

The shiny silk cylindrical hat, soma,

Dams Alice Owen's Is a Remarkable
An interesting educational experiment is about to be tried in connection with what is probably London's
most ancient school. This school,
which' is known as Dame Alice Owen's
School, situated near the Angel, Islington, and which dates back tbree
hundred years, has no playground or
playing fields attached to it. Some
time ago, however, means were found
to purchase ten acres ol ground near
Barnet. As these playing fields, however, are eight miles from the school,
the present headmaster, Mr. R. F.
Cholmelcy, is anxious to erect tour
class rooms on the ground, and to
arrange for the boys to be sent there
in hatches one day a week, so that
they may combine lessons with play.
It is announced that there is a likelihood of sufficient funds being obtained to allow of the scheme being carried out. Behind this announcement
lies a scholastic romance ol exceptional interest; for the origin of Dame
Owen's School was really due to an
accident. .    ,
Three hundred years ago the district
was a favorite meeting place ot sports.
men, who practiced hawking, hunting,
and, above all, archery, and it was
the last-named much-favored sport
which really led to the foundotion of
the school. One day Mistress Alice
WilkB, who subsequently became
Dame Owen, was walking in the fields,
when an arrow was shot through the
crown of her hat, then worn very
high, "which so startled her," to
quote the words ot the historian ol
the time, "that she there declared, il
she lived to be a lady, she would erect
something on that plot of ground iu
commemoration ot the great mercy
shown by the Almighty in that astonishing deliverance."
Mistress Wilks married three limes,
and the story goes that when a widow
for the last time her servant, who had
been present on the occasion ot the
arrow incident, happened to remind
her of her vow. She onBwered that
the remembered the occurrence, and
intended to fulfil her promise. The
result was that she purchased the little estate on which the school now
stands and built an institution for
thirty boys, of whom twenty-lour were
to be from Islington and six from
In commemoration of the event
which led to its foundation, three arrows were fixed, one in the apex and
the other two on tho corners ol .the
gabled front of the original school.
When, In 1840, the old premises wero
pulled down, two of the arrows were
discovered, and are still to be seen on
the walls ol one ol the class-rooms.
A Public House Comedy.
The story ol an amusing comedy in
a File publio house, worthy of the
pen of Mr. W. W. Jacobs, has leaked
out. One afternoon recently a miner
entered a public house end challenged
the landlord to play "seven up' at
dominoes for a "round" to the company. Things being pretty quiet, the
publican accepted the challenge, and
soon the miner, who was a bit of a
crack at the game, was leading by
Jour chalks to nothing. At this Btage
two of the men who had been at the
bar quietly disappeared, and shortly
afterwards a steady stream of customers began to pour in, until by the
time the game closed, with the miner
victorious by seven chalks to two, the
place was completely filled.
The explanation of tlie rapid filling
up of the bar alter the disappearance
of two of the company seems to be
that thc twain, when they found Boniface iosing, had set out to spread the
news that so-and-so was playing the
publican in question for a "round,
that the publican was losing by so
many chalks, and that if they just
dropped quietly in they would be in
time for a free drink.
How successful they were in their
"recruiting" will bo seen when it i;
stated that the publican had to stand

persons.—Lochgelly Times.

Queer   Story of a  Prizefight   In  all
Engllti Royal Garden.
In his book of memories Major-Gen. i
Sir Owen Tudor Burns tells a story '
of the first visit of a shah to Great ;
The shah wanted to see a prizefight,
with blood. After much anxious ,
thought and consultation with Lord
Queensberry an innocent glove fight
waa arranged in the Buckingham
Palace stables, to take place quietly
half an hour before the shah was to
receive Lord Shaftesbury and the
archbishops and bishops witli a memorial asking him to protect the interests of the Christians in Persia.
But the shah slept late. The prizefighters overlapped the prelates. A
footman made a mistake in onening
the door. Archbishops and bishops
following the shah in a moment found
themselves more or less in a ring
found the two prizefighters. The
oishops hustled back to the reception
rooi.i, tha fight w»s stopped, the shah
was angry and disappointed, and
Lord Shaftesbury was heard shouting : "A prizefight in the garden of the
queen's palace forsooth 1 I will denounce you all over the kingdom I"
Mutual explanations followed, the
matter was set right, we sent special
messages to the reporters to keep it
out of the press, and I was later on
privileged to explain it all to the
Queen, who took the matter much
more calmly than her Lord Chamberlain. Once back, however, inside
Buckingham Polaee, we all smoothed
our ruffled feathers and listened to a
most gloomy oration from Lord
The shah, angry at the interruption of his prizefight, turned round to
Sir Henry Rawlinson and growled in
Persian: "Hang the Christians in
Persia! Tell them they're all right I"
Rawlinson translated that into a long,
eloquent, beautiful reply to the deputation, while doubtless the disappointed boxers were having a consolation

bury did r.ot denounce them, though
the shah's bear leaders lived in ter.
ror fer some days.
The Lord Chamberlain blamed me,
I blamed the shah, the shah blamed
the equerry, the equerry blamed the
footman, the footman blamed every
one all round, and we gave the
prizefighters $25 u piece, with a resolution written in blood that never
would any of us again arrange a
prizefight, even for a shah of shahs,
