The benefits of this act are: ' During disability  to work���half Wages, with doctor and  medicine; and for a fatal accident annuity  to dependents   of half   wages  on the estimated life of the vlotim. This  act applies to factories, mines, buildings, warehouses, and all trades where  mechanical engines are used.    It costs  the employers about 1 per cent, of the  wages paid! annually to Insure under  this act.     The employers pay a fund  to thegovernment, which, in turn, provides for its solvency by a tax levied  on tlio vvholo of the firms in a trade.  r Germany.���Germany was the first nation to provide a fund for Injuries received' .by workingmen.    In several different farms some compensation  has  existed in that nation for,more than a  hundred years.

Sir,���We beg leave to ask the favor  ot being granted to us a space In your  paper.   The  readers  ot The' Independent will not have forgotten the dreadful  catastrophe  that  has so recently  befallen this town, through which some  130 men and boys have met their doom.  Another Mow Is now .being struck nt  those vvho are left to mourn the deaths  of their comrades, whilst some of them  are  still  hurled   beneath 'fallen   roek,  etc., in the mine.   It has been the rule  at these,  the Coal Creek mines, sin ;e  they have been opened up, and managed  by four  consecutive    managers,  that eight hours from bartk to bank  constitute  a : day's   work.    There has  been    no .-���' apparent    disagreement between  the employers���; and    employees  regarding, this question, until the advent of iMr. Tonkin,  the new general  manager,;who.has .without consulting,  or even giving notice to the effect, ordered that the;men must work eight  hours at the: coal face, and not asbe-  fore from bank to bank.. To some of  the men this would mean practically a  nine hour shift,' In other words,  nine  hours from bank to bank. Instead of  eight as before.   This course of action  is apparently, an endeavor to establish  a precedent not in (vogue in'any part  of British 'Columbia. Vin the mines at  Nanaimo and others on the island the  men descend and ascend within eight  hours.   It  is  true that  an eight-hour  law: has not been' established  in  this  province, for the simple reason that all  coal mines have' an eight-hour law of  their own, and  the: necessity had' not  arisen for this to be by law established.

To be  of any use these manufacturing sites  must be right alongside of a rallwav,  and a railway should be built to them.  \nother point workingmen should bear  In mind is that the present aggregation  In the city council would, If opportunity  presented  Itself,  give   away  the'  whole of False creek to boost a railway.

Gilthorpe,   of   the   Boiler Makers and  Iron Ship Builders' 'Union has sent out  letters to all the Canadian unions advising them to affiliate; vvith the Trades  and   Labor  Congress  of Canada    and  Trades and Labor Councils. : He says:  "It is Well known to us that the central body is the greatest power locally,  and we request most earnestly that all  our  suib-lodges  toe affiliated therewith,  and1 vve desire   very much    that    the  branches   lose   no   time   in affiliating  with  the  central  body  and with  the  Trades and Labor Congress of Canada,  as one of, the surest .ways  to  better  your condition by reasons of wise and  judicious legislation, introduced by7 the  labor   unit-, of ������'��� Canada." .

Such an evil  really ought to be summarily stopped.  Kow do you think, Dr. Forney, that  ..it can bo put dowu?'  "Well," he said solemnly, as he  rested his elbow on the arm of his  chair and his chin on his hand, "we  ���ought to pass a law against bloomers,  for I think tlie only tiling that, keeps  the women from tlio polls, now, is the  fear of spoiling tlieir skirts, and when  Woomcrs become universal, I am convinced that the women will go to the  poIL-'."

She'was not  the sort of young woman likely to be  internsf>ed in tho "rights" of her sex,  fesving in her great beauty a power  azare far-reaching than any amount of  like to shock tho child with any earnest expression of his own "radical  views," or she would bo expecting  him to drop a dynamite bomb iuto her  soup somo day!  Ho was provoked with himself for  feeling a sense of discomfort and oppression in tho atmosphere of thoir  narrowness. "How can I let it annoy  me?" he thought impatiently.  Suddonly ho became conscious of  tho fact that a vory sweet, low voico  at tho foot of tho tablo was speaking.  Ho paused with his cup half way to  his lips, to hear what sho was saying,  ttough ho did not turn his head to  look nt hor.  "Wo nil know how violently women  woro opposed wheu thoy first wanted  to teach school. And we know, too,  what bitter opposition there wns ouce  to establishing women's colleges.  And now it seems the samo struggle  must bo gone through again to establish Suffrage"  "Hollo!" thought Forney. "Littlo  Miss Rankin hus been visited with an  idea'"  "You aro probably a teacher yourself, nro you?" asked Miss Matthows  in tho tone of execssivo civility which  she usually used iu addressing Miss  Rankin���a touo which precluded tho  possibility of anything hut tho most  formal relation between thorn.  "No, I am not a teacher," Mira answered.'  "Aud you .really imagine," Mies  Matthews persisted, sneering politely,  ''that Suffrage is going to be established nnd that wo shall havo to submit to the atrocity?"  "Would it he suoh a very great atrocity?" asked Mira smiling. "Can't a  woman bo womanly in any 'sphero' and  in tho performance of auy work whatever, and whether robed in bloomers  or in stays?"  Florence blushed nnd cast her eyes  upon lier plate, whilo Miss Matthews  furiously clattered hor cup and saucer  to cover her embarrassment at tho  shameless immodesty of tho young  person who would vcuturo to mention  such articles iu tho presence of a  youug man.  .'' My dear, "sho rapidly suggested to  her niece," this room is draughty���  had you not. better'go out to our sitting room���I will have somo coffee  and rolls scut you thero."  "Nousene, Auntie," coolly rejoined  Florence.  Mirn, innocent of her offense, proceeded calmly, "it is not the work a  woman does that can 'unsex' her, is  it? but her manner of doing it. The '  most womanly character I kuow is a  Unitarian preacher,'pastor of a church  in tho West., And on tho other hand,  some women,who oppose tho Suffrage  are very unwomanly in their way of  doing it."  "Thon we aro to understand," Miss  Matthews coldly asked, "that you are'  ono of the strong-minded women, are  we?" ��� I  "I am afraid I am not quito clear as I  to what you mean by 'stroug-minded.'  If you mean self-assertive and aggressive I trust I am not that. But I hopo  to see political freedom given to  women some day���it surely will be  given unless the world moves backwards."  "Tho world will move backwards  if it is given to them!" angrily  declared Miss Matthews. "Woman  will be dragged down from tho pedestal  upon which man has always placed  her. My Father always said so.  Chivalry will die out. Man and woman will become rivals instead of  boiughelpmeets ono to tho other."  "As for tho pedestal," replied Mira,  laughing, "it is au unstable affair,  don't you think so? Well enough for  a marble or plaster woman. But nineteenth century energetic flesh and  blood find it a rather strained position."  "Well," breathed Florence, "I  should never havo imagined, Miss  Rankin, that you held such queer  views!"  "I am sorry, Dr. Forney,"  remarked  Miss' Matthews  stiffly, "to have  brought this conversation upon you!"  "Upon mo?"  "It must of course annoy you.   To  be sure," shejaid, froeziugly, "I was  that we  should be called  such  opinions as���in���I  the  subject  ~~~ot~~awaro  upon to hear  nm very sorry I broached  at all!"

In fact," ho added, holding out  his hand to Mira, "if she will lot mo,  I $hould like to shake hands with her  on it!"  An irrepressible laugh of surprise  broke from Mira ns sho gavo him her  hand.  "Thore, Miss Matthews," she snid,  good-humoredly, "you seo Dr. Fornoy  chivalrously comos to my support oven  though I havo tumbled (or perhaps I  should say leapt) from the podostnll"  "You cannot mean to tell mo, Dr.  Forney, that you bolievo in giving  woman tho ballot?" Miss Matthews  demanded. ,/.'..  "Alas, Miss Matthews, 'tis even bo!  1 Now do your worst with, me���I  throw myself upon your mercy 1"  "Dr. Forney," said Florence, reproachfully, "I am really afraid you  are sly. You did not own up to your  convictions until Miss Rankin heroically acknowledged hers. I thought all  I confess I am astonished,' Dr. For-  j ney,"; snid Miss Matthews, and her  I bewildered tono coilftrraod her confession. Ho was experiencing somo  secret astonishment himsolf. Miss  Rankin had rather taken him back.  Who would havo imagined her capable  of advancing an opinion in opposition  to tho formidable Miss Matthews?  And with what admirable coolness sho  had done it, too! To think of her  holding such opinions, any wny!  During the remaiudor of the breakfast, howover, sho scar'coly spoko  again. Tho talk was for the most  part flippant enough, consisting, of  courso, in frequent quotations from  Sir Oracle, charming inanities from  tho fair Florence, and a little good-  nntured irony from himself. Miss  Rankin's eyes rested upon each in  turn, but sho said littlo or nothing.  An incident occurred beforo thoy  left the tablo which startled somo of  thorn. Just before Miss Matthew's  chair was a window which opened on  a porch. A woman's face suddenly  appeared before it, the forehead pressing ngainst tho pane, and a pair of  hollow, dark eyes peering into the  room. It was a haggard face, but it  bore traces of beauty. Mira was tho  first to seo it, for she sat facing the  window. Her sudden start of recognition was felt by Fornoy, nnd ho followed her glance. His cheeks flushed  | hotly as h�� caught sight of tho pallid,  i wretched woman, but he instantly  turned away. His quick cyn sought  Miss Halo's. Sho had not looked  towards the window. Ho engnged  her iu talk at onco, and steadily kept  her eyes fastened upon his own.  Evidently, thought Mira, he did  not want Miss Halo to see tho woman  outside on tho porch. She sagely  decided that ho was probably in lovo  with Miss Halo (as what man with  eyos could help being), and that this  forlorn croaturo who haunted him  was an early romance that he had  outlived.  But tho "evil genius" remained  only a moment this timo. With a  lingering look towards Forney, sho  moved away. Ho seemed to know it  by intuition when sho had gono; Mira  saw his chest rise and sink, as if with  a long breath of relief.  A little while later they all rose to  leave the table.  CHAPTER   V.  "I wonder where sho is," thought  Dr. Forney, ns he glanced about tho  rather crowded dancing hall, in search  of a certain small, white-robed figure.  He had brought Miss Matthews,  Miss Hale, aud Miss Rankin on a five-  mile drive to the hotel at Baring  Coast, to a hop. Miss Hale and  Miss Matthows had not agreed very  heartily of his proposal that they invite Miss Rankin to* go with them.  "Sho will not be at eoso with us,"  Miss Matthews objected; and Miss  Halo assured him that, of courso,  Miss Rankin did not expect attentions  from thein.. But with a quiot decision which could not be gainsaid,  he replied that he "could'not consent  to slight the littlo girl," aud that sho  must be invited.  The hop, at its height, presented a  dazzling scene. It was n "crush" on  a large scale, the most brilliant social  fuuetion of tho bv no means quiet  season at Baring Coast Hotel.  Miss Halo hod rapidly become the  belle of tho evening. Forney had contrived to have two dances with her,  but hor card had almost immediately  been filled up for ovory number save  the two last, which sho had promised  to him. He had but that moment  seen her borne off by his friend,  lieutenant Dade, for a waltz, and h��  was now looking about for Miss Rankin.  "I must dance at least onco with  out littlo friend.'' thought ho, feeling, however, that he much preferred  taking up his post in a corner, and  feasting his eyes on tlie beauty nnd  grace of Florence Hnlo whilo sho  danced. Sho looked so surpassingly  lovely in her light evening costume,  and hor movements in tho donco wore  so subtly charming, that it was a de-  light.to watch her,  But  Only a mighty man will send his  wife downstairs to request a burglar to make less noise.

A Tale of the Early Day* of Sottleraeut  in Upper Canada; Sow Onturio��� How  Rollef Canie After Many Lon'j, I.un.e}}-  Hours ef Pandemonium Let Looiu-A  Father'. Good .-hut.  The ferocious and stealthy Canadian lynx, once so dreaded by the  pioneers of Upper Canada, has now  ulniost entirely disappeared irom tho  Province of Ontario. At the timo  when the adventure here related took  place they wore numerous and more  dreaded  than bears.  One summer evening if boy of ten  left a neighboring farmer's, house,  where he had been employed, to return tii his own home a couple of  miles away. The boy, a man for  many years, recently told the story  thus :  "Part of my way led through a  thick piec�� of woods, which came  close to the road on both sides.  Just as I neared the end of the forest bounded road a cracking in the  brunches overhead iind slightly in  advance of mc caused my heart to  stand still wilh fear and niy legs to  go faster. Ero 1 had gone a dozen  paces I heard something drop into  the dusty road. Without hesitating  a moment or turning my head I ia]  straight to the rail fence which bordered the road. 1 was now at the  edge of the clearing, lt vvas the 'back  field'of our own farm rind was newiy  plowed. A short, distance from the  road stood a log barn, with a collar  underneath,' whicli had been built for  the storag* of roots and vegetables,  while the upper part was filled with  hay.  "1 cleared the fence with no remembrance of ever touching it. As  1 struck across the field I glanced  over my shoulder just in time to see  an immense lynx poise itself on the  top rail, its ugly head and short  cars and curved tail showing in  fearsome relief against the strip of  sky behind. .Just a second the  brute paused, ami then it leaped from  the fence and .struck;after me. '.  "I managed to roach the' barn  ahead of the beast, but had no time  to swing the great door shut. I  made for the trapdoor and by a  mighty effort raised it. I had just  time to slide underneath and pull it  down when I hoard the claws of thc  lynx on the barn floor. '7    The   wily  ���HIE LYNX HOWLED WITH HACK.  creature seemed to bo aware that I  could not be far away and in less  time than it takes to tell it had  scouted mc underneath the trapdoor.  "With a savage whine of joy it began to tear and scratch with its  powerful claws at the edge of the  trapdoor. A chain hung down from  the underside, and to this I clung  with all my strength, fearing every  moment that the strong claws would  succeed in wrenching away all that  stood between me and a frightful  death.  "Then.after a time all vvas still. I  _kcpt_(juJfit=_aiid���listencd-iwlong=itiine.=  It seemed, as though the night must  behalf gone. I must have been  there for hours. Could it be possible that the lynx had grown weary  of his vigilance and abandoned his  prey ? The more I pondered over  this idea the more convinced I Ijcainc  that 1 vvas correct. J listened intently for awhile longer, but could  hour not a sound. '.I decided'to  make a venture, but the tales 1 had  heard'related'of the cunning of these  animals made: me cautious. So carefully, slowly, a fraction, of nn inch  at a  time,   1  raised  the trapdoor.  "Quick as a flush I pulled the trap  door down' again, and ri howl of rage  wakened the echoes of tlie bnrn. 1  had the front log of the lynx jammed  between the trapdoor and the floor.  Its claws were firmly imbedded in tho  strong, unyielding fabric of my  homespun coat, and���there vve were.  1 couldn't .'get away from the lynx,  and it couldn't got awny from mc.  Whenever it jerked around too much,  ils claws hurt niy shoulder, c.and I  would pull down tighter on the  trapdooi" lo. mako it keep still. Then  it would cry ami snarl nnd whine  savagely, ferociously, pleadingly and  imploringly.  "The cat had settled down, with  seeming acceptance of the inevitable,  and J was trying not to fall asleep,  when suddenly across the still slimmer air floated the tune of 'Annie  Laurier.' it was my father's whistle. 1 guessed he was on his way  to thc neighbor's to see why I had  not come home, so I determined  to  attract his attention. 1 immediately produced a series of'whoops and  yells tin'I, wouKi have done credit,  to at least a dosren Apaches on thu  war-path. Incidentally I bore down  on the leg of the lynx, riiid that animal at once joined in the chorus and  howled like a tfuzen catfighls an the  roof at the dead of night. Between  thc two of us the racket must have  been like pandemonium let loose. If  my father had been anything but the  sober, canny .Scotchman he vvas, he  would undoubtedly have taken to his  heels; but, after ejaculating fervently, 'Lord presarvo us a' !' he climbed  over thc fence uiy.I started toward  llie'burn. He had a lantern and his  olu musket, loaded wilh buckshot. 1  kept on cullin1;, 'I'm here, in the cellar !' mentioning my name.  " 'Where arc you, Hobby V lie called.  "I explained my exact whereabouts  without requiring- much pressing,  and he at once divined tlie situation.  "Sotting his lantern on the Iloor.  he stretched himself flat on his  breast on the (lour, vvith the musket  level in front oi him. so that the  shot would not pass through the  flooring. Taking cnre'til aim. ho fired, and���and tlie claws convulsively  clutched my shoulder as the great  cat had its proverbial nine lives all  blown to smithereens at once. The.  lynx measured n trille over six feet  from nose to tail."   ILLUMINATED LIFE6U0Y3.  Some of.the IteaulM Attained in Ihu Search  After safety liy Ilm llrllSh  Nnviil AtuhnrllM...  Special appliances for securing the  safety of our seamen have lately  been under the consideration of the  British Naval authorities, and one of  them has been adopted in the shape  iff. a new patent lifebuoy. Every  ship has recently    received   two   o'  s  ������^>tA:.fr^^4:  ILLUMINATED LIXEliUOYS.  these, one to be carried on each  quarter. The buoys arc made oi  copper, enclosing hermetically sealed  air chambers, and have suilicicnt  float power to keep some half-dozen  men afloat for as long as they can  hold on. immediately thc cry is  raised that some unlucky tar has  fallen into tho'sea, a chain is pulled  and the buoy slides off a sort of  'tramway into the water. As it drops  a couple of reservoirs containing calcium caibidc are automatically opened,.and immediately the buoy touches  the/water a couple of flaring lights  blaze up from the tubes running to  these reservoirs. Thc lights arc inextinguishable, and vvill burn for  about an hour. Their purpose is to  show the man where the buoy is and  guide his rescuers to him. The man  in danger can ensconce himself comfortably on thc buoy once ho gets  hold of it, and if the weather i.s foggy he can signal his whereabouts by  a whistle. If he feels cold he will  find in a special receptacle some  rum which he can drink. Tho new  buoy should reduce the chances of a  man being lost by falling obcrhourd  to a minimum.

The exact shape ..of the earth is  a question which cannot be settled  without fresh evidence from the Antarctic. For this purpose two at least  of the expeditions have been provided; with pendulum outfits; by noting  the exact length of time occupied by  the swing of a pendulum the distance of the place of ohsjrva'.ion  from'the earth's centre enn be determined, says The Popular Science  Monthly; It is held that llie South  Monthly. It is held that the south  polar region projects further from  tho plane of the -equator than docs  the north polar region; according to  one estimate the south pole is slightly more than, one-hundredth further  from ' tlie earth's cenl re than the  norlh pole.

Tliis vvas innde by Miss  Anna Moore, I'll. 11., now a teacher  at San Diego, Cal.

Rniph Little announces  that for normal muscular activity  there must lie present in tho tissues  several of the salts in certain pro-  pnrtions which arc definite. This applies to men as well as to frogs.  Dr. E. P. Lyon, in studying for Dr.  Loeb tho question, "Is oxygen equally essential ut all stages of development in life?" li-is discovered that  liic'i of oxygen is absolutely fatal to  tho growth of -sea urchins immediately after the division of the original  cell, ar.'d also for ten or fifteen minutes' after fertilization.  Having fascinated Chicago vvith  the story of a .scientific balloon ascension, Professor Guide, a. noted investigator in Physiology from the  University of Zurich, has just started on liis return to Switzerland, after a visit to the University of Chicago. Dr. Gaule has boon the guest  of Dr. Jacques Loeb, his brother-in-  law. As men of the ordinary . world  "swap" experiences, Dr. Loeb- and  Dr. Gaule have been swapping" experiments, tolling one nnother of the  results of investigations into the  greater problems of life.  In ono lecture ho told of his inter-  pstiug trip three-miles in a balloon  on a physiological research trip. Incidentally he stated that, his wife  took the trip wilh him. The object of  this balloon ascension was to determine with exact scientific, precision  (he cITect upon the blood of a  tliango from a low attitude to a  higher, or, in othor words, to determines what happens in a change like  going from Chicago to Denver. Por  this purpose Dr. Gaulc took fine  microscopes up in the balloon with  him.  "Thc number of red corpuscles in  thc blood was doubled in the space  of two hours. Thi.s doubling vvas real  and not apparent. It was found that  many of tho corpuscles which appeared on the change to higher altitude were fresh cells made from the  bone," said Professor Gaule. University of Chicago scientists say that  thn apparent increase in the corpuscles has been generally noted, but  that Professor Guide's balloon ns-  that before Professor Guide's balloon  ascension it wns never proved, and  lhat it vvas never before known that  the increase was so great as 00 per  cent.

Kinbalmin? Process ivhich Seems to Solva  the l'roblom. .  An interesting demonstration was  recently given at the examination  hall of tho Koyal College of Surgeons in London of a wonderful machine invented by a Belgian doctor  for preserving the dead against the  naturul law of decay. His apparatus effects a subtle chemical change inthe tissues of the dead body which  makes,it impervious to decomposition. What thc change is even scientists cannot exactly say. They  know enough, however, to assort  that it delayed almost indefinitely  the dissolution into dust and ashes.  This is the latest as" it will bo the  most useful development in tho ancient art of embalming, says a writer in The London Telegraph.  Its method is moro wonderful than  any yet discovered, because no impious hand need touch tho dead. In  the more material sense nothing is  done to the body by handiwork ; it  is simply subjected to air heavily  charged with the pungent chemical  known as formalin. This air penetrates tho whole body and in the  course of time makes the tissues insoluble and tho stomach and other  organs sterile. Thus decay is arrested without visceration.

Greatly astonished at this  opening remark, the man admitted  that he vvas. "Exactly," observed  thc great cross examiner in a conversational tone. "1 knew it from the  absurd tie of your neckcloth."  The roars of laughter, coming from  evory person in the court, with tho  single exception of the unfortunate  witness, which followed this rejoinder completely effected Erskine's purpose, which was to put the witness  in a state of agitation and confusion  beforo touching on the facts concerning which he had como to givo ��vl-  dencc.���London News.
