For a few days after the accident it  was thought that the young man had '  a chance to recover but hopes were  dashed to pieces as it was soon seen  that he was slowly sinking and that it  was only a matter of a few weeks be-  thc end came.

Mr. Dickson, of Vancouver, representing the Ford Motor Car Iii 111,  came into town on Saturday in coin-  pan y with Mr. Turner of Princeton  and spent a short while here looking  up business for his fiiin. They left  tho same day for Penticton. They  made the trip from Keremeos to Penticton in two hours and as there was  about afoot of snow on the summit  this feat speaks well for the Ford car.

Mr. Wood is the head  of the Hedley Gold Mines company.  He states that the power plant, taking  its energy from the Similkameen river"  is now in full operation. It does away  with the old coal and steam plant irr  the operation of the steam plant in  the operation of the stamp mill. The  clean up for last year was about half a  million, and every man with useable  hands and legs could find employment  in that section all through the year.

The di'feience in hitting power in favor of the German coast guns is not  huge and a warship well nianeurved  otters a difficult target for a gunner on  land.

It marks the  entry of a new factor.in the situation  ���������that of a class of warship which is  not only superior in gunpower. speed  ��������� and n.i mor protection to any German  warship afloat but which can outrange  all but the larges g- n iu any of the  German seaport for tifieal ions. In  fact, the weight of the projectile of  the 15-inch guns with which the  Queen Elizabeth and her four sister-  ships are armed is within a few pounds  of that of the heaviest Krupp coast-  defence artillery of which the specifications are officially recorded. The  Krupp company since the last figures  concerning its weapious were published may, however, have produced a  fortress gun with a greater striking  power and range.  The Vicker s-Maxiur 15-inch gun with  which the Queen Elizabeth is stated to  be armed tnrows a projectile weighing 1,9.50 pounds and can be fired at  the rate of six shots in five minutes.  The Krupp 1G inch gun, which is not-  used on warships, carries a shell  weighing 2,0z4 lbs.  The other- ships of the Queen Elizabeth class are the Warspite, the Bar-  ham, the Valiant and the Malaya, the  last named having been placed under-  construction as a result of an appropriation some years ago by the Strait6  Settlements, which showed its loyalty  to the empire by making a grant for  the largest and strongest ship afloat.  All these ships are believed to be now  in fighting trim.  If Germany has succeeded in pushing the speed of construction of new  battlehips which she can offer in  battle against the Queen Elizabeth  class are four carrying 14-inch guns.  It is doubtful these vessels have  been completed, but if they are corn-  missioned thoy would find themselves  as much outspeeded and outranged  in battle as were the Seydlitz and  Derfflinger when they ran from the  Lion arrd the Tiger in the North Sea  battle recently. The Krupp 14-inch  gun carries a projectile weighing 1,363  pounds against the British 15-inch  shell of 1,950 pounds.  Germany's fastest battleships do not  exceed 23 knots in speed, while the  Queen Elizabeth class is rated at 25  knots, and the Queen Elizabeth did  several knots better- than that on her  tr als.  The fact that the Queen Elizabeth  is at the Dardanelles indicates that  the new German vessels with their  1-t-inch gun.*! have not yet been completed.  The entry of  the Queen   Elizabeth  A paper has printed a picture of an  old lady, sitting alone in sorrow on a  bench in a park in London. She is  the mot her of a man who has gone to  war and the story beneath the pictiiie  runs:  "Silent she sal, bowed with a weight  of woe upon a bench in Hyde Park,  London.  "���������vireat stories of bravery gleam  from printed pages���������of courage on  battlefields and heroic deeds when  death and life were pawns in a game  of nnl'on.--, but it means nothing to  her for tin: printed lists of death have  broken her heart and taken from her  .���������-.11 joy in life with a line of agate type  which .-pells the name of her son.

GET THI HJJ9IT.  READ TrTlO  ADVERTISEMENTS   AND  PROFIT  BY  THEM  I  It Spins Around at Such a Fearful  Gait That a Furious Gale Perpetually Encircles Its Equator���������Its Possible Inhabitants and Its Moons.  It is curious how little the average  person knows about Jupiter. He has  Ireiii'd a lot, too much perhaps, about  Mars, but that world, 1,300 times the  size of ours, whirling In the terrible  outer distance of space with its "five  moons, its 144 months yearly, known  ns,Jupiter is almost if not quite a mystery.  In the first place, Jupiter, according  to some astronomers, is inhabited.  So are, some' of- its moons, in the  midst of which the great planet spina  -around like a top at such tremendous  speed that it causes around the equator  a furious wind that blows< perpetually  at a rate of about 250 miles an hour.  In the midst of this never ending,  bowling gale'live the Jovrans. Some  astronomers say that because Jupiter  is so much bigger and heavier than  the earth no creature of any weight  cau support1 itself. A man weighing  200 pourids on this earth would,-if carried to Jupiter, weigh 500 pounds,"and,  reasoning thus, they believe that nothing bigger than a cat could stand on  this vast world.  But this is"no doubt a mistake. If  Jupiter stood still or revolved no faster  than our earth all that astronomy says  would be true, aud a terrestrial man  could riot stand upon its surface. But  ns a fact the tremendous rate of revolution is so much faster than the  earth's that in spite of its monstrous  size it turns about In less than ten  hours as against our twenty-four  hours.  As it is, a man of normal earthly  size, if transported to the equator of  Jupiter, would actually feel much  lighter than he does here on earth, because the swift rotation of the planet  ..would almost lift him from his feet  and throw him into the heavens. He  would feel so light that the 250 mile  an hour tornado that blows incessantly would pick him up and carry him  around and around the planet like a  speck of dust  In order to keep on his feet the  JoviaD man or woman would have to  be aboutfifty feet tall. Some of them  would doubtless reach the height" of  fifty-five feet. Like all big bodies, the  Jovian would have a tendency to slowness of motion. Having once seated  himself, he would spend a good twelve  hours at his breakfast and perhaps  eighteen at his dinner and would probably throw up his job if his employer  allowed him less than 6lx hours for  his lunch.  The oceans of Jupiter, torn into fury  by the hurricanes, would pay no attention to one moon such as nroves the  tides on our earth, and it takes no  fewer than five of these satellites to  ���������perform this work for Jupiter. They  travel at various rates of speed, some  flying very close to Jupiter's surface  and others far off. They have atmospheres somewhat like ours on earth,  end a moonlight on Jupiter is indeed a  glorious sight for these moons have a  variety;of colors. Two are blue, one  is yellow and one red.  Jupiter seeds all its moons at night  for liiBiniiiiitio'i, for without tbem its  five boar* of darknetM would be black  indeed. So distant is the nun that  broad daylight is hardly brighter than  twilight on earth, and one lone moon  would not reflect enough of the bus's  rays to guide the JoTian footsteps.  Iu the polar end eemipolar areas the  250 mile au bour tornado of the equator is riot present. Doubtless there are  eddies and occasional windstorms such  as there are od earth. And in these  localities it is possible for fuxraller  creatures to esiwt. and here, too, vegetation would flourish. The food supply of Jupiler must come from these  areas, where it is cultivated and shipped to the equatorial regions by the  diminutive races The polnr oceans  are uot frozen because of the great  internal hear of Jupiter And on these  Btill oceans pmbnbly ships not greatly [  different from ours ply. but about the j  equator the unending storm would j  make surface saillur* impossible. I  If there are rIii'im at all at the equa- I  tor they are sub ma lines, which dive '  Into the calm depth* beneath the sur- '  face Locomotion . by flying machines'  Is extremely easy on the equator because, by taking advantage of the ;'  wind, the Jovians can navigate their j  planet at tremendous speed. j  It  is  possible   that   because of  the  noise in  the  wind swept equator the '  Jovian Is deaf '  Quite likely, on the other band, he  has good ears, but with a device, either  artificial or contributed by nature, for  stopping his ears, except when he  Wishes to listen.  This tremendous, good natared Jovian has a leather-like skin to protect  himself- from" the scratches" of flying  ..things and'ir device for siftingCthe air  that he breathes, for Jovian ^atmosphere is full of dust, and in spite of  the difficulties of his existence be is a  long lived gentleman. On the average  he exists for about 800 of our years.  Probably many a Jovian exists a full  thousand of. our i little years.  A POUND OF FEATHERS.  It   Is   Really   Heavier Than   a  Pound  of Lead.  The favorite question with the  school committeemen of olden time  was, we are told, "Which is the  heavier, a pound of feathers or a  pound of lead?" The first rash answer almost. always used to be, "A  pound of lead." Then," of course,  from the older ' pupils would come  the reply, "Both alike."  If this question was asked to-day  the old time querist might receive a  decided surprise, for the pound of  feathers could easily be proved to be  the heavier. A simple experiment ib  all the evidence needed.  With any accurate scales weigh out  a pound of lead, using ordinary shot  for convenience. Pour the shot into  one of. the pans of a balance. For  the feathers a light muslin bag will  be needed, and care must be taken  that feathers and bag together do not  weigh, more than a pound. When  the bag "of feathers is put into the  other pan of- the balance the beam  will, after a few oscillations, come to  rest exactly level.  So far the verdict "both alike"  seems to be proved. But place the  balance on. the . receiver of arr air  pump, with lead and feathers undisturbed. ��������� Cover the whole with the  glass bell .jar and exhaust the air.  Slowly the feathers sink, and the  lead kicks the beam. The pound cf  feathers is heavier than the pound  of lead.  The truth is that what we call a  pound was not such in fact, for the  atmosphere buoys up everything  within it in proportion to the bulk of  the object, and' the feathers, being  of greater bulk than the lead, are  supported by . the air to a considerably greater extent than the lead.  Removed from this supporting medium, their true weight is made evident.        ''  Charles Reade propounded a similar; question in one of his novels. A  Jewish trader is made to ask, "Which  is the heavier, a pound of feathers  or a pound of gold?" After awhile  he explains to the satisfaction of hi3  audience of miners that the feathers  are the heavier.  Gold, he explains, is weighed by  troy weight, while feathers are weighed, by avoirdupois, and as the twelve  ounces in a pound troy contain only  5,760 grains, while the avoirdupois  pound contain nearly 7,000 - grains,  the pound of feathers is, of course,  1,240 grains heavier than the pound  of gold.  A decided-economy in fueicpnsurnptioii is  effected by using ni ckelled st eel in  Some Costly Toys.  The presentation by President Fal-  lieres of a costly toy railway to the  Czarevitch   reminds   us  that  one   of  the first model railways, on anything  like a large scale, was the most prized possession of the ill-fated Prince  Imperial  when  a boy.    It was  constructed in the gardens of the Tuil-  eries, and is said to have cost 50,000  francs. ��������� In   the   private   grounds   of  Mr. T. H. Shriver, a wealthy resident  of Denver,. Colorado, is a still more  remarkable   miniature   railway.     On  a circular track, 400 feet long, with  a gauge of 8 3-4 inches, Mr. Shriver  drives   a   train   of   eight   Lilliputain  carriages,  carrying a dozen or more  passengers.    The Rev. H. L.
