From Our Own Correspondent  A Canadian visitor at the A. Y. P.  nas reason to feel gratified at the  showing made by his country at the  Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. It  is always comfortable to feel that you  are in it, and after attending a ball  game at Dundale Park' and watching  Vancouver wallop Seattle to the tune  of 7 to 4 in a league match of the  Northwestern league,.and proceeding  to.the fair grounds where the Canadian exhibit is artistically displayed  the writer- had reason like other  Canucks to feel that Canada was  strictly in it.  The   fair   grounds   themselves are  beautifully   located   with   most picturesque    surroundings    and    easily  reached from  the heart of  the city  either by street car lines or car line  and  boat giving a delightful sail on  Lake Washington.     If  quickness in  reaching the ground be  the main object of the visitor,  the best plan is to  take a Madison St. car and transfer.on  to 23rd  avenue car which will land  him at the main entrance gate.   If a  little   longer   time   is   given   and a  variety sought,  keep'to the Madison  car until it reaches Madison Park on  Lake  Washington,  when  boats running, at present, every fifteen minutes  willl andhini at the lake entrance to the  grounds. If a. longer sail is desired, take  2nd or 3rd ayenue car and transfer at the  Interurban station to a Yessler Way  car which runs toLeschi Park on Lake  Washington and from there a sail of  about half an hour or less will land  the visitor- at the lake entrance to the  grounds.   A little later on when the  attendance increases  these boats will  run every five minutes and be increased in number.  The buildings at the grounds are  artistically designed and attractively  and conveniently arranged while the  color effect is most pleasing. This  color has been described as pink, but  if so it is a shade of pink that is more  softened and pleasing and carries a  suggestion of cream white with slight  pinkish shade.  The Canada building is a one-story  structure of handsome design and con-  forming to the prevailing color.

Canada in green, with large maple  leaf ornaments of green at either end.  The building is numbered "10" on the  official plan of the grounds and has a  fairly conspicuous position, being close  to the music pavilion and is one of the  first buildings on the left to meet the  eye on entering the * grounds by the  lake entrance.  In front of the building are two  enormous boulders of solid shining  silver lead ore from the Slocan. So  large are these that one of them being  placed on end had to be imbedded two  feet into the earth to keep it from  falling over.  The Canadian exhibit is superintended by Mr. Hutchison, formerly representative for Ottawa in the House of  Commons, and the administrative  ability which ho brings to bear in the  discharge of the duties of Canadian  commissioner- has been further improved by valuable experience in this  line for he was first appointed to the  position at the Buffalo Pan-American  in 1000 and lias had the direction of all  subsequent exhibits made by Canada  at world's fairs since that date.

Brigadier  General Otter is   in   the  west instecting the militia.  The crop outlook on the prairie  promises to be the best in twenty  years.  A branch of the Bank of Ottawa  will be established in Vancouver  shortly.  Prominent clergymen of New York  who are visiting in Winnipeg say-  there is a strong possibilities of Rev.  W. C. Gordon, (Ralph Connor) being  called to St.Nicholas church of that  city.  Mr. William Sloan, ex M. P. for Co-  nrox-Atlin arrived in Vancouver from  the East on Sunday evening. Mr-.  Sloan stated stated that he was not  looking for the appointment to succeed  Mr. Dunsmuir as Lieutenant-Governor  and the matter was not discussed during his recent visit to the Capital.  Officials of the 1012 Canadian exposition and Selkirk centennial, have  cabled the Canadian representative  attending the imperial press conference at London, inviting their support  and influence for tlie holding of an  Imperial press meeting in Winnipeg  in the year 1012. The coining of Canada's first International Exposition  has already aroused great interest at  many American conventions this year  and the centennial committee at Winnipeg is receiving 'volumes of enquiries.  The visit of Sir  Frederick   Borden  and Mr. Brodeur to the naval conference in London,  it is to be expected,  will   result in * the establishment of  some form of Naval force, by means  of which British Columbia can see her  coastal waters patrolled by Canadian  ships of the best type.    It is now time  to insist upon one thing.   The prospects  of the coming _ Canadian Navy  must" not be imperilled  by its being  turned over to the tender mercies of  Mr. Brodeur and his wonderful Marine  Department.     That   eminent  statesman found   his  department  in   bad  shape, had  two years in  which to reorganize it, and then was caught by  the Cassels'  Commission with his Department as rotten as ever.    Apart  from    the   special    unfitness   of  the  Marine Department it  must   be   remembered that its  name really is a  misnomer.     Its business is to build  lighthouses, place bouys and otherwise  help navigation. Its fishery protection  boats are useless for naval pirrposes.  The   Australian   method   should  be  studies.   In the Commonwealth there,  is one Minister of Defence, and he has  ���������under him -two Departments,  one for  the management of the Land Militia  the other for the management of the  Naval force.     The Minister manages  both Departments,  and they are linked by a Council of Defence oyer which  the Minister presides, and upon which  sit   the   senior   officers   of   both  the  Naval and Military branches.   In this  way    both  services   are   enabled  to  understand and help each other, and  to  form    their   plans   in   harmony.  Australia  has   led   the   way   in   the  matter of a^naval force  and her example should . be followed  by Canada.  British  Columbia has riot yet forgotten  the   protest   of   last autumn  against  the system  of deferred elections,  one   of the   meanest   political  devices    now    in   existence.     Public  memory will be kept alive by the fact  that the Dominion Government avows  its intention  of persisting in hanging  on to this advantage.     The Conservative members of parliament formally  protested   during   the   session.     Mr.  Burrell    moved    the   resolution   condemning  the   practice    and   he   was  supported  by  Mr.   Goodeve and Mr.  Barnard.     The Government reply did  British  Columbia  the exact  injustice  which  Mr. Goodeve  pointed out was  contained in   the act  of which complaint was made ; it declared to all the  world that British Columbia is so wild  a Province, has such  imperfect means  of communication,   in a word is so uncivilized,   that the election  cannot be  held within   the ordinary  time allowance. For' a province which is striving  to attract capital, and insisting that it  is the peer of any of the  Provinces in  Confederation,   this is  a particularly  damaging    advertisement;    but    the  Government not only refused to make  amends, but repeated the libel in plain  words.     As it was  pointed out in exceptional  a more  liberal* time allowance  could  be given   and   the   writs  could be  telegraphed, but the government was determined to  preserve the  paltry advantage  which involves the  discrediting of British Columbia.  Electors should get one thing into  their heads. It is the constant habit  of certain Liberal apologists to shout  that the Canadian party at present  labelled "Liberal" is the custodian in  this country of the principles which  are "Liberal" in the theoretical sense.  If we are to believe them the present  Liberal party in Canada is moved by  the same motives, and government by  tlie  same  principles,  as   the   English  The Saturday Sunset has on its front  page some very good illustrations of  Midway, B. C. and surrounding district. In speaking of tha t section of  the country, and of railway progress  through the Similkameen," the Sunset  says:���������  "The illustrations on this page are  of the rich-Kettle River fruit district  near Midway, British Columbia. Mid-  can be reached from Vancouver  through British Columbia via- the  C. P. R. in about 36 hours and via the  G. N. R. through , Washington - in  about the same time. It is about eight  hours from Spokane. Spokane gets  most of the'trade of Midway and east  of it to Rossland and west of it to  Keremeos, the present terminus of the  V.V.&E. rails.  With direct communication to Van-.  couver, Midway would be less than  ten hours distant. In the intervening  country are Similkameen, Hedley  Camp and Keremeos. All the trade  now going to Spokane would come  here. -In addition to the existing trade  hundreds of mines would be developed  thousands of acres of i ich land cultivated, cattle, fruit and timber- would  be produced. There is no richer dis-  in British Columbia.  The fact that the V. V. & E. is slowly creeping up the Similkameen must  not be overlooked. That line is now "  grading towards Princeton. Steel will .  shortly belaid to Hedley. It is just  four years since Hill got his renewal  of the V. V. ������te E. charter and this is  all the progress be has made since, that  time though assurances that the line  would be pushed to Vancouver were  definite and copious. If that line stops  at Princeton or halts there, all the  trade of the district will go to Spokane  and it will continue to do so until direct communication with the British  Columbia Coast is established.  After the line leaves Princeton it  will have to begin to mount the summit of the Hope. Most of the tonnage  above Princeton will be of the mines.  Jim Hill says he cares nothing for  mines or timber or anything but grain  traffic. He said that last fall in Portland. Prom Princeton south the  country is almost as rich agriculturally as it is in minerals. If Jim Hill  ever brings his V. V. & E. line over  the. Hope he will do so only underpressure. It should be part of Premier-  McBride's railway policy to apply the  pressure, or the inducement. Unless  Vancouver gets direct connection with  that district it will be merely an annex  of the State of Washington, as i t is  now."  party which fought for the Reform  Bill, which insisted on the broadening  of the franchise, which fought for free  trdae, which  led the way in social reform, and  which to-day is antagonizing capital in the Mother Country. As  a matter of fact "Li beral" in Canada is  simply a party name and  the party  which is known  by  that title  at present happens   to  be  the reactionary  party in Canadian politics, is the party  which is  wedded  to   corporation   influences, is the party which is opposed  to public ownership and by its Grand  Trunk Pacific bargain has made it impossible for the next half century, and  is the stubborn opponent of progress -  ive methods    in   administration   and  government.     The debate on  the deferred elections in  British Columbia  gave a pecularly good example of this.  . Mr.  Monk   and Mr.   Burrell,   two  members of the party which  is labelled "Conservative," declared for* a fixed and stated  date for* elections,  for  portional representation and for the  telegraphing of writs ; the two'former  of- these  would be distinctly radical  changes in our method of goverment  and the  third would  constitute a sensible improvement in our way of doing  our election business. The party labelled "Liberal"  would   have  nothing to  do with them.    The plain fact  is that  the Canadian  party labelled "Conservative" at  present contains a radical  wing which   is larger,  is more active,  and is more influential in the counsels  of the party, than is the case with any  radical element which may still remain  in the. "Liberal" party.

When Kipling wrote of the American  spirit,which he said  "Bids hi in rna.ke the law he flouts,  And bids him flout the law he makes"  he certainly knew what he was  talking about and possibly had  several flagrant  cases  in mind  when   he   penned   the   words.  During the last session of the  Washington  Legislature   some  freak laws were passed by freak  legislators, and now  comes the  time   for   the   enforcement of  them.    Of these laws there are  three in particular that are engaging the   public   attention���������  the enactment making it a penal  offence  under the  criminal  code to smoke cigarettes, to tip  a waiter, or for a judge  on the  bench to appear in court without the gown.    At present the  more punctilious policemen are  'gathering    in   a   few    callow  youths caught   smoking  cigarettes,   but   the    tip   matter   is  working out in  a most  extraordinary way, for while  there  is an attempt at recognition  of  the law observable in  the actions of breakers of it in  that a  little ostentatious care for concealment is to be seen  such  as  putting   the   "quarter"   or   the  "dime" as the case maybe, in the  cup or soup plate and  covering  it up with the napkin or with a  piece of bread, with a knowing  wink to   the   waiter,   men are  giving"    tips   now   and   giving  them  in   this  way,  that   were  never  known  to give  a tip before.   But as for the judges and  the gown, shades of Joe Martin!  some judges have been persuaded  by  esthetic   wives   to   buy  gowns  to wear in court,  while  others say  "gown  be  hanged"  hang their coats on  the  chair  back  and  hold  court in  their  shirt-sleeves,    and   no   zealous  cop has yet  thought of putting  the hand-cuffs on them for this  flagrant scorn for the law they  have been chosen to administer.  And thus iire they seen to act  to-day in cities like Seattle and  ���������Spokane, while if visitors to the  I fair qui/.z them on their customs  ; or thoir .law's, they will boldly  I assert that they are the chosen  '��������� people specially set apart for  '. the duties of responsible gov-  I eminent. (  :     To    Canadians    brought    up  1 under  possibly the best system  j of.  responsible, government   to  be  found   in   any   land,   these  legislative fiascoes to be seen in  adjoining states  should carry a  lesson.    Here our  lower courts  are    -whollv-   courts     of    law,  wherein the law  must bq inter-,  preted just  as it reads whether  that law'.be right or wrong, and  ii:    anyone  is    wronged    by  a  ���������wrong law he  mustappeal .to. a  higher 'court in which'.the judge  is  permitted  tf>  disregard-, the  strict  letter of  the  law-which  bound the lower court,-,,and can.  render a decision  based on precedent,  equity and justice.   If  we then  must abide  by the de-  cisioias of our lower courts that  must take the  law as it reads,  how  careful  we  should  be  in  electing  members  of our legislature to make our laws. Freak  legislation is the work of freak  legislators,  and   these 'are  the  men that are eternally striving  to place laws' on our statues the  enforcement   of   which  public  sentiment will not: uphold.  THE PRESENT SITUATION  Is it  not  remarkable  that it  does  not seem   to   strike   our  American  cousins,  who are in-  d urging in  so much merriment  over    the    "German   scare"   in  England that they themselves  have  not yet   quite recovered  from  the  fright  which   sieved  them, wlien trouble with Japan  seemed to  comfront them ?   It  is  not  so   very  long  ago  that  their    newspapers   were   filled  speculations regarding the number of veterans from,  the Man-  churian armies, now  settled in  California,   Oregon  and Washington who might  be mobilized  on American  soil to  assist in  any    attack     made     by    the  Japanese fleet   upon   the   seaboard   of   the   United States.  Even the journals least disposed to  surrender  themselves to  panic  discussed   that  question  with a gravity which indicated  their belief that it might not be  entirely  unreasonable.    It was  the same feeling of  doubt and  insecurity  on  the  part of the  administration  at Washington  which led to the assemblage of  the American  war fleet in the  Pacific.      Nor,  despite   all   the  subsequent interchange of courtesies between the two nations,  has the disquietude  which was  then created  entirely subsided.  It is less than a week ago that a  California representative to.the  national conference of Charities  and Correction associations held  at Buffalo, stated that "it would  be  an  easy matter  to marshal  an    army   of   50,000   Japanese  veterans at almost any point in  California within 48 hours."  If there is even a modicum of  truth in that statement, and it  was made by a man (Mr. W. A.  Gates, secretary of the Board of  Charities of San Fransisco) who  not only firmly believes it himself but who represents a very  large volume of public opinion  in the West, what absurdity  can there possibly be in the assertion that England is honeycombed with German spies and  German soldiers masquerading  in all sorts of disguises, ready to  lend support to any attempt,  however wild, at invasion of  Great Britain.  It is admitted that there is an  immense German population in  the cities in England, and to assume that there may be no  organization among them directed from abroad is to assume  what history will not reasonably teach us to do. 13ut apart'  altogether from any such  feature of "tlie situation it  should be sufficient to arouse  Great Britain, and her colonies  as well, to a sense of impending-  danger when such men as Mr.  Balfour, Sir Edward Grey,  Premier Asquith, 'Lord Roberts  and Lord Charles Beresford insist that Britain must prepare  for trouble.  The   situation   becomes   still  more serious,  it  becomes more  serious  for the colonies as well  as for the-mothor country, when  the    best   authorities    on   the  strength and  efficiency  of  the  army and the navy assert that  the whole  bulwark of the empire is inadequate to its protection.    It is  only a few  weeks  ago that Lord Roberts stated in*  words' not  to  be,  mistaken  or  misinterpreted that the British  army   was   totally   inefficient;  and  following  that disturbing  declaration Lord Beresford, the  greatest expert on Marine sub:  jects  states that  "matters connected with  the  British   navy  are very  serious."    Of course a  certain political element in the  mother country will  cry aloud  that all this is  but a war scare,  indeed  they have already done  so,  and  these   vain assurances  will   be   repeated   by   similar  elements   in    the   colonies, at  least they will be iri Canada,  but such  assurances   will,   we  think, meet with  but little response from the  great body of  the Anglo-Saxon people where  ever they may be.  The colonies like the mother  country will believe the prudent statenjieiits of the best in-  formed, most responsible and  most intelligent!y loyal of their  statesmen and will agree that  the empire has been sleeping in  false security and that unless it  rises to the gravity of the situation, now and at once, the  supremacy of Britain may pass  for ever.���������Ex.

From  Manitoba .eastward  through  the Canadian eastern provinces and iu  our northeastern  states unusally cool  weather will prevail following June 25.  The disturbance near July 1st will be  continental  and  of  unusual severity.  Next bulletin will give additional par-  ticulais about that disturbance   and  will   give   general   forecasts of July  crop  weather.     Crop   weather conditions are favorable  to high prices for  grain ��������� but as    the   great   speculators  have     absolute    control   of prices, 1  warn all grain dealers to be cautious.  The policy  of   the   great speculators  is to   take' the   other   side  from   the  general tendency of prices and  usually their money has greater effect than  do the weather arid crop conditions.  The safe plan   for   the  farmer'   is   to  sell at home   when   he   can  get fair-  prices.   If he undertakes to ship grain  or live stock to the great markets  the  great speculators can run prices' down  before he gets there.  the quantity had to he avoided and  hence representative specimens only  are displayed. These however are  mostadvantageously arranged and attractively displayed. The silver-lead  ores of the Slocan and Amsworth  sections, the heavy dry sulphides of-  the Rosslcind and Boundary, the  nickelil'erous, pyrrhotitesand arsenides  of the Sudbury region, the rich silver-  ores of the Temigaini county and tlie  free gold white quartz'ores ol'Nova  Scotia, each have their section and  much of it is under glass cases to prevent dust and soiling, a precaution  tlraD is particularly commendable and  must add to the effect during the long  weeks of each exhibition.  In many cases geological charts of  the ore bodies analyses of the ores,  and. illustrative steps in the metallurgical process for recovery of the values  is given, and valuable statistics showing the value and the increase, in production tare given. _ The,boundary section for instance, shows the. two  classes of silicious and calcareous iron  and copper.sulphides which makes the  ore self-fluxing,   the matte recovered  ���������  THE BEST  S  NONE TO GOOD  FOROURCUS  T  libr  We  endeavour  GROCERIES that  to keep   a STOCK  of  cannot  be  excelled  by  CANADA AT THE A.-Y.-P.  BASEBALL  The first Baseball match of the season was played on Sunday afternoon  between the Daly mill men and the  town, and proved a victory for the  town team notwithstanding the fact  that the Daly team was reinforced by  four star players from the Nickel  Plate mine.  The match was called for 3:30, and  started on time, with Paul Brodhagen  as umpire, A number of noticeable  errors were made, showing that both  sides are very much in need of practice, but the game was a friendly one  throughout.  After the sixth innings, when the  score stood 9 to 8 in favor of the town,  the match was called off on account of  rain.  The line-up was as follows :  The Mill.

Canadian Geological  Survey in  that  line and the survey has been represented at exhibitions ever since" the  Pan-American by Mr. R.L. Broad bent  who is one of its oldest members having been on the Canadian Geological  Survey Staff for 29 years. The technical knowledge which he possessed  and the experience which' he has gained has attained the happy result that  Canada's Mineral Exhibit has excited  the envy of mining men who have  visited, the fair- and in conjunction  with the mineral displays of California  and Alaska which have'also been collected and arranged with skill and care  is having the effect of compelling  drastic changes in the arrangement of  various mineral displays in the United  States Mines building. An evidence  of this fact will be seen in the following extract from the Post-Intelligencer.  ���������'Dissatisfaction over the mariner iri  which the mining exhibits at the exposition thrive be distributed and  placed was expressed on all sides last  night at a meeting of the Washington  State'Mining Association. As a result  of the disapproval of the arrangement  of the exhibits, B. W. Kavanagh.presi-  denb of the Association, was authorized  to select a committee to call on the  exposition officials and those who have  had the placing of the minerals in  charge and endeavor to have them rearranged. ...  "George McQuinn brought \up the  matter by stating that many of the  mineral exhibits were improperly arranged. Mr. McQuinn stated that  many ores were improperly v labelled.  FOSTER'S   WEATHER   REPORT.  Washington, D. C, June 19.���������Last  bulletin gave forecast of disturbance  to cross continent 19 to 23, warm  wave 18 to 22, cool wave 21 to 25.  This disturbance was expected to  bring severe weather on the Pacific  slope, to be preceded across the continent by unusually cool weather and  to inaugurate a period of moderately  warm weather favorable to growing  crops where not too dry.  Next disturbance will reach Pacific  coast about 23, cross Pacific slope by  close of 24, great central valleys 25  to 27, eastern states 2S. Warm wave  will cross Pacific slope about 23, great-  central valleys 25, eastern states 27.  Cool wave will cross Pacific slope  about 26, great central valleys 2S,  eastern sta,te.s 30.     This disturbance  He declares that some gold ore was  labeled copper and that other mistakes  were notrceable. He also ..stated; that  instead of having the minerals on  tables elevated from the floor, they  were placed on poles -raised' only  slightly from the floor. ���������  "J. Conway stated that he was much  chagrined at the mineral exhibit, not  because the minerals were unavailable  but over the manner in which the various'exhibits were arrange^. He said  that this exposition was supposed to  be a great mineral exposition, the  greatest in fact ever held anywhere,  but that unless steps were taken immediately the hopes of the mining men  of the Northwest would not be realized."  In  the work of preparing and arranging the Canadian mineral display  and looking after it during the progress of the fair,   Mr. Broadbent has  an able and industrious assistant in Mr.  Douglass,  who by the  way has had  some experiencein Similkameen placers  and is specially interested in any and  all contributions to the display from  this district; but thus for the Similkameen and Camp Hedley in particular  owes   most   to   Mr. M.  K.  Rodgers  whose display of Nickel Plate, ores,  concentrates, sands, slimes, geological  charts and mill plans arc   all that are  yet to be seen,  for strange to relate,  the Great Northern have as yet failed  to deliver the shipments of   ore specimens consigned to   them from Hedley  about the beginning of May.  THE MINERAL EXHIBIT  In this exhibit which is meant to represent all important mining sections  of Canada the tendency  to increase  from the'first smelting and the blister  copper which is the product of the  converters.  M. -K. Rodgers' display of Nickel  Plate ores,' before referred to is, most  valuable and complete especially accompanied, as, it is with a geological  chart of the ore bodies, characteristic"  samples of each kind of rock and ore,  and glass jars containing the sands,  slimes and concentrates with a blue  print plan of the mill construction. In  the American Mines building he also  has .a similar and perhaps more complete display of the Nickel Place ores  as well as of the- Hidden Creek Mines  which are" in British Columbia and  Alaska ores from his Alaska properties  similar to his display of minerals in  the Alaska building.  While it.is unfortuuace that the.Siinilkameen exhibit has been held up  somewhere in route, yet it will doubtless turn up one of these days and will  receive the attention of Messrs"Broad-  bent and Douglass who Have tracers  out after it.  The fruit display in the Canada  building is most attractive.

WHY PAY RENT?  The Artist's House Was Wrecked, and  How He Got Out Alive and Uninjured Is a Mystery���������The Puzzle of the  Staircase and Hallway.  In 1S74 a canalboat carrying a hundred barrels of gunpowder along the  Regent's park canal in London exploded just opposite the magnificent  house of Laurence Alma-Tadeina, the  famous artist, across the road. This  happened at 4 o'clock on a rainy,morning. EveiT window in London within  a radius of a mile was smashed, and  the houses in the immediate vicinity,  though solidly built of brick and stone,  were wrecked.  "I was sound asleep in bed at the  time." said Alma-Tadema, "and the  first 1 knew of the explosion was when  I found myself standing out on the  sidewalk in front of my house in the  rain, with my pajamas on and bare  feet. How I got there I never knew.  The .entire top of the brick wall in  front of the lawn before my house was  blown off, and (he front of the house  itself was as if driven in by the blow  of a giant's fist.  "The canalboat, we found out afterward, had blown up underneath a solid  bridge that crossed the canal at that  point. Had it not been for that my  house-aud the others near it would  have been utterly knocked to pieces.  It was fortunate,' too, that there was  no one on the street at tho time. Had  the explosion occurred in the daytime  hundreds of persons might have been  killed or maimed:-  "But the strangest episode connected  with the event concerned the man  "whose duty it was to keep watch on  the bridge during the night. His name  was Peter-Knox. He was thirty-seven  years old, married and had two children. I knew the fellow and had often  chatted with him'-on firebridge. The  day before the explosion he had ar-  '"ranged with a friend of his to come at  4 o'clock and relieve him. It was a  Saturday, and he wanted to take his  wife and children a little trip down to  Bushey park on the Thames, and he  wished to get to his home in east London in time so as to have breakfast  and bo off early on Sunday morning.  "Well, as 4 o'clock drew near, Peter'-  so he told mo afterward, began to feel  anxious lost his friend should have  forgotten the appointment. He paced  up and down tlie bridge and looked  up the street, but the morning was so  Bark and misty with the rain that he  could see only a short distance. A  few minutes before 4, he said, he noticed a line of canalboats come slowly down toward the bridge, but paid  no special attention to them.  "Just before the, first boat passed  under tho bridge he stepped off it,  though in doing so he was infringing  the regulations, and sauntered up the  street in the direction from which he  expected his friend to appear. He had  gone about forty yards when the explosion took place, and when he turned  not a brick of the bridge was left. If  ho had been loss impatient or if his  friend had been more prompt, one or  both of them would never have been  seen or heard of again.  "But my own little,/-adventure was  singular enough. As I said, I was  not conscious of having been awakened by the explosion, still less of  having got out of bed, come downstairs, opened the front door and stopped out to tho sidewalk. The shock  had lenocked all memory of these acts  out of my head, and I have never recovered it.  "But what puzzled me most was the  condition of things I found when I  went back into the house. The hall  was a mass of wreckage, and the staircase from top to bottom was covered  with pieces of broken glass, sharp as  razors and so distributed that I found  It impossible to ascend without a light  to show me where not to tread.  "Nevertheless I had come down  those same stairs, with my eyes shut  er unseeing, and had never so much as  scratched my bare feot. The thing  was impossible, and yot I had done it  I had been skeptical about miracles  before that, but since then I have been  both a believer and an evangelist."
