COMPULSORYJRBMATION  LITTLE  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.  ���1133 FAIH   HAKEISS.  To the Kditor of The Indisi-kndknt:  Sir:   In reading over your valuable Paper under duto of Nov. 8tb,  1902,   and  under . heading    of    "Pair    and' Unfair  Places" in the city of Vancouver, 1 ho-  tice'yoii have'my: place', of business, 830  Pender Street, noted as being unfair.  I  fail    to   seo why this should bo suid  ol  my   ��� place.  1 buy from  whom  1 rhoosc,  pay cash for the articles', 1 want to satisfy .the demuhds of my trade and compete vvitlr other merchants, of-whom not  a woid has been said.    Some  im-io ngo  I    vvas    called  on  by sonic parties  and  asked'to  quit  dealing with  Dakar  Hurry. :  1 asked tho parties: to give the reasons for quitting, and all tho reply 1 received wuss-M'urry. was on the *:ii:',iir. list.  This  I  do   not  consider  an   nns'-vor "to  i.iy-question.     Now   1   have   veiy   *,itt!e  moro to say  on  tho.mnttcr.     .lust one  point, and that is this: .Wlien the bunion  men    make      all bakers  and  merchants  come      to  the one   level,   they  vvill jiot  have to. vvasto any  time coming tome.  I  myself    am  a' member of ono of  the  strongest    unions in   Canada,   and  I  respect honest  labor,   but  I Smust  confess  that  tho union  people  1  have  met      in  Vancouver are very faint-hearted. I close  by ; saying: ,.Make  all.: strike; the same  time  and  thc Maple Leaf  Grocery,   830  Ponder     Street,     will   cheerfully   follow.  Thanking yon, Mr. "Editor, for your val  liable space I am yours'respectfully,  E. A.  JOHNSTON  830 Pender Street  Vancoovcr; 11. (J., Nov. 14, 1002.

If you do not concede tlie.se points it will make trouble."  And   tho  man suid:     "I  huvo nothing  to   concede.     My-mills   are   built  to! be  run and thoy will run." '     j  Theio was a jackass who stood on the  raitioad truck. And a train came along.  And thu bell rang and tho whistle blpw.  Dut the jackai-s said: "It is not my  iiiituru.to. move under compulsion." And  lie stood still. t  And the-business .man's workmen tied  up his mills iu a bow knot, Aud it took  him two: yours to liud out'.'whether his  business'-was on its head or: its heels  alter- tho 'trouble wus settled. And the  locomotive caught the juckass and 'so  ficutterod him vdver the country .'that v;it  lias not stopped raining jackasses yet.'  ���Ex.  SHEET IKONWOHKEl'S OltGANl/jlO.

D. licit societary. Tliis nevv oigani/u-  tiou piomiso-s to be one of the most  progressive and best littic unions-in the  city.  (By 0. J. South.) .  In dealing witli tho .question ol^ compulsory arbitration the first point to discus^  is: What is capital? The term capital is,  in my opinion, wrongly applied when it  is used merely to designate accumulated  money,; real .estate, shares, or otlier  property  representing  mere, money. '���"'���:���  Many writers and spcukcrs in using tlio  tcrmi-capitallst, rofcr.to the man having'  a  certain   amount  of  money,   und  have  ,'novor, been able to see it, or if tliey have"  seen,   have  refused  to   aduiil  that  there  i.s another anil, more*important meaning  .attachable to thc'term.' What   is   capital?  Yes, money is capital; but too often  it  has been'unearned. ' Too  often the possessor of money  has' expended  no brain  power and no, labor : to . , acquire    .tliat  ..which' ho how. holds,' but has received his  wealth from u hard-working parent, since  deceased, whilst another class holds that  which he has acquired by methods which'  will  not, bear   tho  light  of  lioriest faithful scrutiny* or investigation.    Tliero:  Is  another class who have/    because' they  have improved every opportunity to bot-.  tor- themselves,   made ';the '''���' best  use a of  their   brains,   tlieir    -hands     and ���   their  health,: and they:  deserve"    tlie- . success  Which has attended their untiring'efforts.  Yes, I again say money is capital;, and [  it is, right, just and: honorablo that "for-'  tlie. use of .this, class  of capital that    a '  fair interest  should  bo   demanded'    and'  NEW COMSUMPTION' CUItE.  Dr.   W. ' C.   Ilobbins,   ol rhoenixi   Arizona,  a snllcrer from  tuberculosis In an  almost  hopeless  stage,   has' been  intelligently  experimenting   upon   himself     for  four months.    He     is    facing     possiblo  death with  tho utmost pluck,    and    ,s  hopeful that if he does not savo his own  life, he at least will    furnish     data    of  valuo   to   tho  piofcssion   in      tho    fight  against the disease.    At a timo when ho  judged his   death to bo not over a week  distant, he injected  into  :. his veins    a  quantity of a solution In which tho active  agent  vvas  formaldehyde, , Tlio  result was immediate, vvith: almost sorious  symptoms    of  a rapid   riso  bf  temporn-  turo and  convulsive features.  Within     a  few      days,    however,    he was    strong  enough  to rise from his bed   and  to make  analysis of his own sputum,  whicli     ho  found filled with dead  bacilli.     Hu    has  repented tho injection several  times, and  believes himself gaining  in strength und  health, and has been ablo     to administer tho remedy  to some patients     who  havo_also_oxporiciicoil���marked���^benefit.  Dr. Hohbins claims nothing for liis remedy,  but hopes for  much.    Another experiment  along   thu  samo  lino  has  been  begun nt the Sisters'  hospital  at Phoenix;   where Dr.   Wilfred   tl,   Frallck,      of  New  York, introduced into  tliu blood of  Judge llcnson Kennedy, 13  ounces of a  now   mysterious   liquid   genulcldo   whoso  composition ho  refuses   to  divulge.  It Is  supposed,  however,   to   Includu  foi'malde-  hydt.  Some   of tbo   piovincial  pnpei'S      tako  put ficular  pains  to  point  out  thut  the  orgunizatioir.mecting   of jtho   Provincial  Pcogressive Party  last  week   vvas small.

Tho  .subject   of   arbitration   In   connec  tlon   with   tho   settlement   of   lubor  disputes In Great Britain.  Is taking a llrm  hold of  tho minds of both  workers and  employers.    An association for the promotion  of British  trado  und   commerce  uud   the  recognition   of   arbitration     is  being  established,  and   the   movement  Is  meeting   with      considciablo success     in  uvory part of tho United Kingdom.    As  may.be easily supposed the organization  of so hugo an undertaking entails a vast  amount  of  work,   and  will   take     8ome  littlo time before it guts ln harness. The  object of tlio association regarding trado  disputes or "lock-outs" threaten to, exist  will be to organizo and focus public opinion so-that parties  will bo compelled  to accegt an arbitration award.

If so,   then     if  nipnoy capital has stlio :rigiit- to demand  a remunerative  interest for the  loan  of  it, surely this otlier and more extensive  |iClass=of=iCapital=has-Tin-equftl���right��� itr  also  receive a  romunorativo  interest for  tho use thereof. .  It  is hero   that   the   question   of  arbitration comes in,    I confess that I cannot understand the   opposition    of    the  money capitalist to  compulsory nrbltru-  tlon,   for, these same  p-jopla    are    usuvg  Just this sumo principlo    all     tha    year  round in connection  a-ith otlier hmnchea  of their business.    Let us illustrate:   A  merchant'says   that A  ovves    him  $10,  but A says ho does not.owe this mun a  cent.   -What does tho merchant do? Does  lie talk ngulnst urbltrutron -him'.  Not he;  he compels  A   by legal 'process  to come  before  a court,  of  arbltratIoi��,iiinl   tho  question  Is  Inquired   Into,  and   both  thu  merchant nnd A   must abide  by  the de-  cislotrof thu stipendiary magistrate, who  Is tho arbitrator appointed to deal with  cases of this class.     Tliis  is  compulsory  arbitration  pure und simple.  Wo are told by certain persons and. a  -section.of tho press that the settlement  of .'labor-disputes by the process referred  to is'a.complete failure, but I want to  say that.I know from personal experience that ��hcse statements arc absolutely incorrect and will not bear honest in*,'  vestiga'tibn.: v.'.;���'���: Jyy  The .most cruel -visitation, v that;/ can  como upon any city, district or couhiry,  is that which is commonly known 'as n  "strike." Strikes bring misery and sui-  feiing not only to the men directly interested, hut to thcir wives and thu dour  littlo children,. and tiiey bring loss to  every class of trade in tlio country Iu  which they have been put, into opurutiuti  And not only this, a strike alwuys engenders ciuel, hard and inhuman feelings  on tlie purt of the .einployors towurds  'tho employees ' und equnlly bitter ; feelings, on the part of tho men towards  their employers. I will suy nothing of  the monetary loss involved.  If compulsory arbitration will Imake  strikes impossible, if it will crcutc abetter feeling on both sides, 'Induce tho employee to give a better service becuusu  lie ' knows that , lie is receiving  nu equal interest upon the capital ho is  putting into the contract or - industiy,  with the man who bus divested his  money, is it hot jusc what eveeyono is  asking for und will it not bring ubout  truo prosperity?  How     docs i compulsory        arbitration  work?    It is fair to   all * panics.     1 re-  incmbcr a case    in point    vvhieh    is;-. u  completo answer to both questions.  'JY.o  miners employed at one  of the Austral  ian     coultields     some.few*: years      ago  .thought that  tbo .owners  of    the ".mina  sliould givo them un increase of 12 cents  ton.   Under the old conditions  the demand  vvouid  have  been refused  and    a  disastrous: strike would havo," followed,  but  under the arbitration  laws  of: Aus-  tiaii.i,   instead  of  striking,   the lcqucst  for'tho increase :,vvas filed in the court of  arbitration..    The court made a careful  investigation   and'.discovered  that undei  existing contracts the  owners could :i0t  aflord to pay. 12 cents a ton,-but that  the owners; could pay an" increase of. six  cents  a  ton,   and   the court-so   ordered,  tho order taking effect as it always does  under tlio; act;  from tlio day .upon which  the . application for   the increase was filed  in   the   court.  Weio theie huid   feeling--  upon either side?

Money will    flow  into   our   province   and   dominion.     Tho  most powerful  influence  at  work- today  preventing tho  incoming    of:   money  to  work our mines,  to  open up every kind  of industry,  is the fear that tho possessor  of  money  has  that  somo  dimciilty  will arise,  and a strike will ensuo    and  waste his money.    Tako away, the possibility  of  strikes  taking place  and  tho  financial  man  will   run   all   other    risks  and .overcome every other difficulty.

S. JUClure Company -  *<v--><^**t>*<5**^*3>*<^*��*<Si*<5>*<33  Young Mr. Carlisle Partridge possessed an umple income ami an extraordinary talent for lhe piano. Ills  ' ambition to be a celebrated performer  occupied much of his thought and  time. Unfortunately just aH ho reached the point where ho felt wu minted  , In appealing as a professor his health  began to show signs of fulling. Ills  physician advised change of nlr and  less arduous practice.  Partridge, sought out a beautiful  country town whose air was invigorating. He engaged a large front room  nnd the use of a rear ono, which wns a  sort of country back parlor. In the former he had a grand piano installed 'and  restricted liis use of it to three hours a  day, practicing ouly tbe numbers for  liis programme.  The small community was much Impressed by this exhibition'of opulence  and energy. So was the daughter of  liis la nil la d.v;'a girl of eighteen. Hetty  '-'Humphreys was a bright and exceedingly pretty girl, who luul already  made her marl; in the little village  world by her standing at the academy.  Her mother planned for her a higher  flight at Ilolyolic college.  After a fow days the girl's interest in  tlie handsome young musician deepened. She would spend nearly all of tiie  evening hour for practice in- the bay  window, which looked out oii'the large  garden. A honeysuckle vine clambered  thickly around this window, whose  'ledge'was ouly a few fuel'from the  .-ground. .Off a little at one side vvas a  vineciad arbor.  "Ho you mind if 1 sit in tlie window  of the back parlor and hear yoii piny'.'"  ..she-asked.- "You do play so beautifully,  and of course we get so little music of  any kind here tliat it's a real treat and  ��� nn'education'for me. I'm too busy the  rest of the day lo give it attention."  , Mr. Partridge had assi'iited. witli the  proviso that she should not speak to  him until the hour was over. Hetty  promised, and when the, thing was  tried be found that she, was. as good  as hor word. In fact, when he had made  some remark to her the first niglil she  had not replied. He was so nearsighted that lie could not see well into tin*  dark opening of the window. It wus  not until he hnd closed the piano and  made another remark that lie received  any response.  "TircdV Xo, indeed, but it makes  me feel so dieamy I don't want to say  ii Word."  This wiis as good ns could be. So  the rehearsals  went  on  through   the  EVEllV ..

Thon  came a ripple in the placid current of  his rustle experience. One morning  after lie had 'finished his practice Mrs.  Humphreys requested a moment of  speech ..with him. He assented, won-  _,dcTl_!!g_w_m___sjho could want. She was  tho incarratimM>OroS?iiu"d-c6untry=  respectability of the narrow. but Insistent sort.  - "I've got to say 'something to you,  Mr. Partridge. It isn't very nice to  have to mention it. But. though Hetty  is smart, she's only a girl and; only  used to country ways. She used to  ��� like to visit witli friends nights, but  now she don't show no disposition to  do so. It may be the music, and that's  nil. Hut she's changed since you (Mime.

She unfolded a while clolh and  showed a square of deep yellow silk  witli several bars of music embroidered in each corner, lu the middle tt  large ���"!���" was outlined' in the same  black silk.  Mr.  Partridge took the square, examined the musical bars and nodded  liis  head.    Then  he: looked  at Mrs.  '��� Humphreys, with a mildly Inquisitive  air.  "You seem to know them musical  figures," said she severely. "Have  they got any meaning?"  "Why,, yes. This Is from a ScotcHi  tmilnd. 'Could you come; back to mc,  Douglas, Douglas?'" He sang the  words softly. "This is from 'Carmen.' "  He sang again "SI tu m'aliucs. Esca-  uttllo." "Then this Is from 'The Bedouin's Love Song.' The last is a pas  sttge from 'A Pastoral Symphony' )  practice."  Tlie ingenuous young man reddened  uudei- tho sustained gaze of Hetty's  mother.  "It's not just fancy In me," she declared. "That poor child's in love."  "Well, that isn't such a dreadful  thing, Mrs. Humphreys, is It? Miss  Hetty is about eighteen or nineteen,  aud girls usually do fall in love about  that time."  "I'm not blaming you. But you don't  mean to say that you have any <erious  feelings for niy daughter, do yon, Mr.  Partridge?" Sho spoke with a red face,  hut fierce determination.  "Good heavens, no!" exclaimed thc  musician, with un explosive emphasis  tliat carried conviction. "What���what  kuvu I to do with il?"  She put her forefinger on tho large  funereal "P." "P stands for Partridge,  flon't it?"  Ho flushed with annoyance, but there  was no gainsaying that it did.  "it must all be a mistake," he pro-  tested. "3 never see lier alone except  when she is around when 1 play evenings, and 1 don't sec her then. She  likes to listen quietly and thun go  away. I am perfectly innocent."  Her expression had softened, though  shestlll looked worried. "I don't blame  you, Mr. Partridge, but you can see  that it must bo stopped."  He did some quick thinking. "1 can  go awny. I meant to stay two weeks  longer, but I can get off In a day or  two."  Three dnys later Hetty drove him to  the station. Her mother could not oppose this last devotion. She saw hiin  on the train. "1 am ever so much  obliged for those lovely evenings of  music," she said cheerfully, and he  could not but admire her bravery.  He hositute'd a moment and then  said, "I would really like to have the  sofa pillow, Miss Hetty."  She looked at him open eyed, then  asked quickly, "How did you know  anything about it?"  "Oh, I snw it one day," he replied  evasively. "I know all the airs, of  course, but 1 shouldn't have guessed  it was for me only for the 'IV "  She hurst,into a merry fit of laughter. "Did mother show thiit to you?  Upon my word, that wasn't for you!"  And she laughed again.  "Oh, pardon me"��� But the train  pulled up. und'he was off.  It had not disappeared when a young  follow,came out of the waiting room,  and the two drove briskly awny.  "George." she said, "that Princeton  pillow I made for you mother and Mr.  Partridge thought I had made for  him."  "Well, there's no harm In that" he  Inughed back. "If he had only known  what a good blind his playing was for  thoso evenings in the arbor, ho  wouldn't hnve nny suspicions like thnt.  But we've got to hurry to get to thc  other station. Tlie minister ls expecting us in New Haven."  "Oh, George, mother will be surprised! Do you suppose your fnther will  forgive us?"  ���if he doesn't, I can stand it. Hetty,  dear."

One of tlie most remarkable productions of the isles of Chlleo is tlie celebrated "barometer tree," wliich grows  in great profusion in all of tlie salt  marshes. It belongs to the naturrl order cuphnrhlaccu!, and is believed to be  a near relative of Siphonia elastica, the  inilin' rubber tree of Brazil. The wonderful trails of this tree were first mado  known lo white men in 1SS1, the unlive;-! informing tlie De Youug company  that both llie leaves and the bark of the  trees were never falling weather prog-  no-stieators. In dry weather tlie bark  of this natural barometer is as smooth  nnd white as that of a sycamore, but  with ilie near approach of storms these  characteristics vanish like magic.  Twenty-lour hours before n storm  breaks over the little Island the trunk  of every tree.of the species turns as  black as ebony, stive a few scattered  patches of carmine, these latter markings being supposed to foretell great  electrical dislurhnuco. The leaves, too.  which in their normal stutc hang laterally (ns they do ou ull American trees),  drop edgewise and tremble like tilings  endowed with animal life and reason.

Its most remarkable peculiarity consists In the middle linger  of its hands, which, Instead of rescm  bllng the others, is, us Mr. Richard  Lydekker says, "extremely thin antl  spidcrilkc."

Somo live years ugo Mr. Brown,  who is a hard-working, Industrious  and sober man, began to feel a stillness nnd soreness in tho calves of  his legs. This gradually increased  till ho had lost all power in his  limbs and arms. He could not have  raised his nrms to his head to buvo  his life and for over four months ho  could not stand or walk alone a single step.  All tho doctors treated him and  gave him up. Then ho consulted a  Itowmanvillc doctor who told him he  could do nothing for him nnd advised  him to go to tho hospital in Toronto where they might be able to help  him a little.  To the hospital ho went in January, 1898, and remained under treatment for ovcr four weeks. Twelve  doctors told him ho could not recover  and that nothing conld be done for  him.

Lord Salisbury will 'spend the rest  of his dnys at Tiutlield lioi-se, tho  home of the great . Coell'funilly. With  the exception of a brief lour uii'ihc  Continent next month, tho qjf-l're-  mier of Knglund will lomtiin in practical, .seclusion from now on.  Hatfield House, the noblest country seal in Knglund,'is but half tin  hour's journey from London, iu a  northerly direction. The gre.it  Wrought Iron igateways of the Salisbury, estate fnce tho railway station.  Hatfield House itself is but live minutes' walk from the railroad platform.  ���Lord Salisbury has long been ..desirous of leading a life of letiiement.  might years ago he became so absorbed in his private chemical experiments and tho study of electricity at  Hatfield House that ho refused to go  to London, except on the inost urgent Parliamentary business.  Since the deatli of his wife, three  years ago. Lord Salisbury has become moro.self-centred than ever. He  haa dropped from his visiting list  many of his most intimate friends,  nnd Hatfield House has become a  solemn cloister.  Lord Salisbury's study on tlio  second floor, of the great, rambling  house has been turned into a chemical laboratory. Hero the ex-Prime  Minister' spends' many hours each  day, going over chemical reactions,  and working with.. t'est-tu be and retort. Glassware of every description  litters up the room, and ho is, never  more at peace with himself and the  rest of tlm world than wlien working  out ti chemical problem.  The 'only real recreation now taken  by Lord Salisbury is an early moi n-  ��� ing spin on his tricycle. He seldom  - leaves the grounds surrounding Hatfield House, however, and since Lady  Salisbury's death, has never cycled  through the streets of Hatfield town.  Tlie only chance the friends of Salisbury will now- have of seeing him  will be at the occasional '-garden  parties"Which will bo given at Hatfield House. Here the retired statesman will appear for a few' moments.  ���..The immediato family of Lord Salisbury���that of Lord Cranborno, his  eldest son���takes good care the retired statesman is not left too much  alone or with strangers. For- some  years it has been noted tliat the  mind of the great Minister hns been  failing, and recently lie lias made" so  many mistakes, fiom lapses of memory, that he has to bo pretty carefully looked after.  The latest story going the rounds  since tlio famous mistake lie made ol  taking somcono else for Loid Roberts, after a two hours' interview,  relates.* to someone he; noticed i walk-  Jng through his library while he was  talking to his son. . As the person  referred to passed near Lord Salisbury tho latter remarked to Lord  Crtiiibornc:  "Who is that person with the  rather bright face?"  "Why, 'that's your secretary," was  the astonished answer.  -When'the question of Lord Salisbury's retirement vvas first seriously  mooted many speculations wete indulged in as to tho manner in which  he would spend hi.s time.'Sonic suggested that, as he had been interested in literature ns a young man, he  would doubtless devote himself to  writing , and political speculation.  Nothing could be farther from his  purposes. - '  It will bo ' remembered that when  Lord Salisbury began his career he  hnd;to make his own living by the  ; pen in London.. !Tho struggle was a  Very hard ono. Being a younger son,  his father had..- left, all the immense  possessioiis of the house of Cecil, together .with the title,- to the present  Marquis' eldest hi other. It was only  thiol gh the death of this brother  ���.; that the bile Prime Minister came  into his fortune.  Having hud to make his living by  writipg, Lord Salisbury holds literti-  turij-.to be a most distasteful' pursuit".'. ��� His appointment of Alfred  "Austin' to succeed Lord Tennyson ns  poet' limreato was nn expression of  the contempt in which ho held literature in general.; Outside of r.homistiy  and the study of .'physic's. Lord Salisbury cares little for mental work.  The bin dens of state have weighed  JieavJl,y___iipoii__liiin,_._niid_he_assiiinetl_  them only at the earnest, solicitation  of   tho  late Queen  Victoria.  No one cati blame Lord Salisbury  for wishing to retire from public life  to such a place ns Hatfield.  .Tho history of this famous family  seat is closely woven with that of  England itself.. In the Doomsday  Book survey, dated 1080, .Hatfield is  mentioned as containing enough land  for -10 hides, meaning from ,'1,000 lo  C000. acres, and "pennage for 2.000  hogs." So, even at tliis early dale,  the estate was.a very considerable  oue.  The first mention of Hatfield is  (luring tho reign of King Edgar,  when tiie manor vvus presented to  the Abbey of Ely. Tlie ubbey was  made a bishopric, and Hatfield became the bishop's residence. The  first 'Hatfield'House was built by  Morton, llishop of Ely,  in  .1170.  King'Henry VIII. coveted Hatfield House, which was really a palatini residence, and when Thomas  Goodrich became , Bishop of Ely,  Henry, in characteristic fashion, insisted on the bishop exchanging Hut-  field for some tracts-of land in thc  North of England,  Thus did Hatfield become rcrown  laud. Here Princess Elizabeth was  flducatcd, studying under/.Roger As-  chaih. Elizabeth lived at Hatfield in  close seclusion until the death of her  sister, Mary.  Elizabeth was standing under the  old oak treo to-day shown near  Hatfield House when the .-'announcement was made to her thnt she was  Ouecn of England.   Tho treo is much  venerated in England and is called  "Elizabeth's oak." At Hatfield  House to-day ono iniiy see under a  glass case the. garden hut which  j Queen Elizabeth wore on this occasion.  Hatfield:House came iuto the possession of the Cecils'in this manner:  When James I. was en route from  Scotland to London ho stopped at  the country estate of Sir Robert  Cecil at .Theobalds'. Ho admired the  estate so much that ho -offered to  exchange Hatfield (crown land)' for  the Cecil estate at Theobalds. Tlio  bargain was made, and: from that  day to this thu great Hatfield estate has been in tbo Cecil family.  Kir Robert Cecil, the'first Lord  Salisbury, tlio second son,of the  great Lord Burleigh, built tlio present Hatfield Houso. lie. was hi.s own  architect and spent 835,000 on the  mansion. Tho houso was completed  in 111.11,...though since that time tho  place has: been practically built over.  Tlie palace formerly occupied by tlio  bishops and Queen Elizabeth is now  used for stnbles.  ' When Queen Elizabeth was living  at Hatfield the caused her family  tree to be prepared. It is shown I o-  ds>y at Hatfield on a long scroll of  parchment, -which has two handles  for um oiling. In tliis strung-' pedigree Elizabeth tr.ues her descent directly from Adam and live, Helen" of  Troy, mythical King Arthur and  otlier weird characters.  Ina loom on the second floor of  ITirtfield House one may see the  cradle in wliich Queen Elizabeth was  rocked when a baby: The cradle has  ���on i,t:tho initials "A. H.," whitli  stand for "Anne, Regina." This  Queen was1 Anne lloioyn, one of  Henry VUI-'s unfortunate wives.  "Thus surrounded by reminders of  tho glorious part, Lord Salisbury  has chosen one of the most suitable  places in thc world in .which' to  round out his splendid career. Loid  Salisbury was burnetii Hulfuld 7*1  yoars ago. He is passionately attached to the place, and has spent  vast sums of money on Improvements ih recent years.  Lord Salisbury is devotedly attached to his littic grandchildren,  vvho reside at Hatfield House. Since  the doath of Lady Salisbury, thiee  years ago, tlio society of his daughters and grandchildren has absorbed  till of Salisbury's "family affection.  His sons, all of whom occupy important Government positions, have little  time to spend at the country seat  of the Cecil family, but Lord Salisbury's daughters look after the aged  ox-Premier with: tender s'olicitude.  Here is the manner in whicli the  retired statesman spends a typical  day: He arises early, shortly before  7 o'clock. After a light breakfast his  secretnry acquaints him with the important news of the day.,; About 8.30  he mounts liis tricycle and takes n  leisurely spin around Hatfield Park,  part of tho grounds of his estate.  Returning to the house after an  hour's ride, he receives important  visitors or messengers from the  King, Balfour, Chamberlain or  others, though lie is taking no active  interest in affairs of state.  At noon he partakes of a light repast. The hours of tho early afternoon are spent'in chemical and physical' "research, especially electrical  studies. After 4 o'clock Loid Salisbury may be seen Walking about the  grounds or sitting on one of the  terraces of Hatfield House, in company with thc , children of Lord  Cranborno, or his own daughters.  Lord Salisbury retires quite early,  seldom sitting up;after* 10 o'clock.  '   SIR G. WHITE'S PQEM;  Printed In  I.cttfrn of Cold   In ".Gibraltar  .Chronicle und Gazette.

The wholo circumfci ence of ,the earth  is leckoncd as DOO degrees," the one  iiundred and eightieth'degree, half  way round, being exactly on the opposite side from,Greenwich. So tliat  when wc speak of a place as being 75  degiees east vve mean 75 degiees  east from Greenwich, and 75 degiees  west is 75 degrees west of Greenwich. Tlio point exactly opposite to  Greenwich, on ,11)0 other side - of tho  earth, therefore, is 180 degrees oast|  and also 180 degrees west.  Now, this point, or meridian, is  the place wliere, by universal consent, the day changes, nJid it is called the '.'international' date line. Let  us sec how the change is made, and  note some' of the curious conditions  that the change gives rise to. Suppose two ships are sailing toward  that line, one sailing east and the  other west. On the ship sailing toward the cast the day is Sunday: on  the ship sailing towned the west tho  day  i.s "Monday.

We rend in Wilson's ''Behind the Scenes in the  Trnnsv.ia!"'���"Aga>n and again have  Kudus reported events hours and even days before the Hews1 conld possibly liave got thiough by the oulin-  ary channels.

To determine ut what time* the name rosary  (ltisonkrniis'.) was iutioducid is extremely dill-cult. Ciailands of roses,  i'mplying a rcfertucu to the term rosary, were a conspicuous featuic of  pictures and tablets of the fifteenth  century, but before ..this', no clear examples arc foiiht'Omi'njf-. Al that  epoch il was common for both men  and women in o'idiniiry life to wear  garlands of flowers uud to place them  as a mark' of respect, upon the heads  of persons anel statues. Father  Thurston is 'strongly' in-.-iinert-to believe that its application to the particular devotion now uncL-i* discussion 'was'mainly ..'due to the.7 popularity of a stoiy of a certain garland  which cun be traced very. much earlier j  than the Word itself in almost overy  part of the Chrisliiin world. The  name must have come from tlie story,  and the siory was not evolved out of  nh already existing name.  The legend in question is briefly  this: A youth was accustomed to  make a vyreath of roses or other  llowers every day and to place it  upon the head of: Our Lady's statue.  1 Ie became a monk, aiid inthe cloister his occupations no longer permitted him to observe this pious practice. Being much distressed, he asked counsel of an aged priest, who advised him to say his Avcs eveiy  evening, which Would be accepted by  Our Lady in lieu of the garland.  This tlie young man faithfully "observed until one day while on a journey he bad to pass through a lonely  wood, where robbers were lying in  wait. Quite unsuspicious 'of their  presence; he suddenly remembered that  his Avcs were not yet said and forthwith stopped to say them. , Then, to  vtheir sur; rise, the robbers saw a  most glorious lady stand before him  and take one after another from the  lips of the kneeling monk-fifty beautiful roses, which she wove into a  garland and placed upon her head.  The robbers, conscience stricken at  the vision, wore all converted to a  better life, and ihoinseKcs soon after  entered, the .'monastery.���London' Telegraph.  . Mr. Alfred Mosclpy.  llr.

If the editor makes a mistake  there is a lawsuit, tall swearing and a  smell of sulphur, but if the doctor makes  olio tliere is a funesal, cut (lowers and a  smell of varnish.   The doctor can use a  wonl a foot long, but if an editor uses it  he has to spell it. ��� If the doctor goes to  see another man's wife he will charge  the man for the visit.   If an editor culls  on another man's wife he will  get - a  charge of buckshot.   Any medical college  can make a doctor.   You can't make an  editor.   Ho has to be born one.   When  a doctor gets drunk it is a.'case of* "over  work," anil if ho dies it is heart failure.  When an editor gets drunk it is  too  much booze, and if he dies it is a case of  delirium   tremens.   An   editor,    from  what littic experience I have had with  them, works   to keep   from   starving,  while the doctor works to ward off the  gout.   An   editor   helps   men    to live  beiter,"aiul_tlie~doi!tor_iassists" iliem-to  die easy.   The doctor (?)  pulls a  sick  mans leg, while an editor i.s glad if ho  can collect his bills at all.   Mont*y only?  110*4 eilitors are only living for fun and  to spite the doctors.  impatiently, said crossly, "Call yourself  what you like, that will be easy enough,  but you will find it quito another thing  to aiake peoplo call j'ou by afresh name,.  Also,-remember that it is not etiquette  to speak of disagreeables at court. ' I do  not allow fishermen to be mentioned in  my -presence."   So -Fits Clarence left the  audience-chamber. "Whatnext?"asked  the queen, and in answer to herquestion  tho herald blow on n council * shell, and  thero appeared threo nice'littlo whitings.  "Only one at a time,"  said  the queen.  So the eldest whiting advanced and be  gun her story.   "Please, your  majesty,  wo are tliree orphans, and our lather  left us a nice little garden which wu  have tried to cultivate.   Just as our seaweeds get a nice size the lobsters. come  and bite off the young tops."   At these  words there was much consternation in  the'eourt, as, of course,everyono knows  how very aristocratic the lobsters are.  While the little whiting was speaking  there were forty lobsters standing round  tlie great pearl  throne, and very fine  they looked in tbeir gorgeous red coats,  0, no? it is not a mistake?   Their coati  used to be red,.as you shall soon' bear.  At the time I am writing of, every lobster had a bright red coat, of which he  was very proud.   Now, the lobsters used  to consider the queen sadly in wanting  in dignity, and they tried hard to makej __  her conform to all sorts'of silly conventionalities.   So the queen felt her time  had now come, and she rose with all the  dignity sho   could muster,   " We   are  grieved to iind members of our court  sadly wanting in morals and manners]  and it is our painfnl duty to punish tbem  with thu utmost severity.   In future all  lobsters shall be born black, and none  sliall have the entree to our  court."   A  terrible silence   followed,   which   wns  broken by the  whiting:   "Please, your  majesty, can you not alter your sentence  if the lobsters promise they won't do it  again?"   The queen considered   for   a  while, and tbe whole court was hushed.  After a pause she rose and addressed the  lobsturs:   "For the dignity of our eourt,  we will slightly mitigate our sentence,  Wlien you are boiled (here a dreadful  shudder shook the lobsters nearly all to  pieces) you sliall change back to your red  coats, so teat mortals  may not shrink  from you as we shall .here.   But your  attendance at court will op no longer required, and all your appointments will  be j cancelled."*- Even as she spoke   a*  TUidngc was visible among the' lobsters,'  Wi| thc qucen-'ftiul her attendents had  left the court* before much more than  thu claws of'the1; lobsters had  turned  black.   Then the littitj whitings Ment  home and cultivated  their garden   in  peace.   Black is such a sign of disgrace  among the inhabitants ot the sea that  nobody again ventured to disturb tlieir.  gardens.   The queen went up onto the  rocks, and while she was combing her  hair .she said to her favorite' maid of  honor:   '.'After all, perhaps I 'was   a  little severe, and what shall I do for a  body guard?   Red is so" very becoming  of my coinplexiofi'."' Tho maid had no  suggestion to offer, so the queen is still  J|t(,ing 6n"*'tlie' rc-eks   considering   the  question.   The lobsters  are   black   in  color, and in temper, and use tbeirelaws  very freely,   rio now   you   know   the  true reason why lobster* change their  color when boiled.  e  ���  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  9  0  ���  Union Directory.

HOUSE PAINTING 11Y MACHINERY.  Among tlio latest labor-saving devices  is one winch pm poses to .lelievc thc  house tincl roof painter of the bulk of  his woik. Thc machine, says tlfu now  Penny Magazine, consists of a set of revolving bill-lies, driven by ��� compressed'  air, uud guided by hnnd. There is a  rubber hose connected between the blushes  and a paint tank. The paint is foi ceil  from the tank to tho brushes, thc  pressine being easily regulated. As tliu  blushes revolve, one within tho other,  they aio guided up and down and along  until tlie wholo surface of the wall luis  been gono over. A contest between a  house painter and the painting machine  was iccently hold to determine the mct-  itVof_tlio latterT  Does anyone, exce.t a practical chemist, ever  stop to think of the BUbstanccs which wc get  from coal, nnd the almost unconceivable variety of thoir uses? Everybody is familiar with  those of them that arc in daily use, such as gus  illuminating oils, coke nnd par.iflin, but of  the greater part feu* persons know even the  names, science advances to rapidly, and its  nomenclature is so extensive and so obstruco.  It is no wonder that merchants nnd maiiufac.  lurers take advantage ol this ignorance to foist  upon tbe public articles of food, of drink, or for  the toilet thnt, if they are not always  dnngerous to tho health',' have not in tliem  a parlicle of tlie substances which tliey  pretend to contain. Thougli coal has been  known for some hundreds of years, the discovery of its numberless products is confined to  more recent days. Illuminating gas was unknown a hundred years ago. Petroleum has  been in use only about forty years, and it is  scarcely moro than fifty sinco someone discovered that stone coal was inflammable.  Neaily till the oilier products derived from  soft coal have been discovered and applied in  the Interests of science, or of fraud, within the  la*ttuents-five years Thc Iirst thought in regard to coal is thnt it Is made to give'heat or  warmth. The next that one of its principle  uses is to illuminate. Hut there are obtained  from it tbe mollis ot producing over too colors,  or shades of color, timong tlie chief of which  ure saffron, violet, blue, and Indigo'.' There'is'  nl*o obtained a great vnrloty of, perfumes  according to a friend of ours, ^liois a chemist  ���cinnamon bitter almonds, queen of.'.tlie men.  ;kows, clove, wiiitcrgreen,a'nlh'e. camphor, thy.  moi (a new I'rcueh color), v'auiline and helio-  tropine. Some of these are used for flavoring.  (Among the explosive agents, whose discovery  has been caused by the war spirit of the  last few years in England and Anierleu, are  .tno called illnltroben/.ine, or bcllite,iuiid pic-  rates. ' To medicine, coal has given liypuone,  salicylic acid, napthol, phenol, and uutlpyriuc.  Benzine and naptlilialine are powerful insecticides. There have been found iu it amnionin-  cal Baits, useful as fertilisers, tanning, saccha-  rincal (a substitute for sugar), tlie flavor ofcur-  lants, raspberry, aud rpepper, pyrogallc acid,  and hyiiroijuiuoue, used lu photygrtipiiy, and  various substances familiar or unfamiliar, such  as tnr, resin, usphalluni,'Mubriciiling 'oils,  .varnish, and thc bitter taste <of beer. * By  means oi sonic of these we can have.wiue with  out the juice of the grape, ,bcor without malt,  'preserves without either fruit or sugar, perfumes without (lowers, nud coloring matters  without the vegetable or animal substances  'rom whicli they have been hitherto cliiclly derived. What is to be the end of ull this'/ Are  our coal beds not only to warm and illuminate,  but to feed and quench the thirst of posterity?  We know that tbey aie thc luxuriant vegetation ol primal epochs, stored aud compressed  in a way that has made them highly convenient  for transport and daily use. They arc nature's  savings laid up for a rainy day fur her children,  tlie human race, and it is probably because  'hey ure composed of trees, the foliage, the  plants, the roots, tlie fruits, and tho llowers,of  the ancient world that they uow so largely  supply the place of our fore.-Is, plums, lie  and gardens. ,  FltffllNGlAL PROGRESSIVE  PARTY.

One of these merchants slated'that  ho would'buy five hundred thousand  pounds <of these specially fattod chickens in Montreal this fall, and guarantee tp-pny not less'than ten cents per  pound for each chicken. There is,  therefore, no danger of an over supply, or of a lowering of the price ot  fatted chickens in Montreal during  the1 present season,  'His Dominion' Department of Agriculture ships specially fatted chickens to Great Britain every year. Lust,  year the price received; in Great Britain tor the chickens exported from  tho 'illustration" stations was '.; from  six and.three-quarter pence to eight  penco per-pound.' The ocean freight  from Montreal to Liverpool, haulage,  and commission charges, amount to  one cent por pound on a:shipment, of  over ;two .hundred/chickens, so that  sixteen cents per pound in Liverpool  equals fifteen cents per pound nt  Montreal.

The greatest demand in both Great  Britain and Canada is for chickens  weighing from four to five pounds  each, ��� drossod weight. The demand  for large heavy chickens in Great  Britain or Canada is limited. -Two  chickens four pounds each arc satisfactory for' a large dinner, but one  eight pound dic'cn i.s not.[��� satisfactory for two ordinary dinners.

WASTING AWAY  THE  SAD   CONDITION    OF  MANY YOUNG  GIRLS.  Mothers Should Ho Vory Cureful Wheu  Their IJuuglituri Complain of Ileud-  uvho, Fickle Appetite, Dlszlness or  llourt Palpitation.  Many mothers neglect the health of  their growing daughters. Not wilfully, of course, but becauso they  think tho occasional headaches from  which thoy sudor, llckloncss of appetite, and pale cheeks, are the natural  rosu t of the morging of girlhood into womanhood. This is a serious  mistake." Thore is no period in a  girl's lifo when sho needs more attention, and unless tho littlo troubles  arc successfully treated, more serious  ones���perhaps decllno and consumption���are suro to follow. What every  young girl needs at this period is a  tonic medicine that will give her  a rich, red blood, strong nerves antl  bring hor safely through a critical  period iu her lifo. For thi.s purpose  there is no other medicino in tho  world can cqonl Dr. Williams'x Pink  Pills. Thousands of girls throughout Canada owe their present health  and'happiness to this medicine, and  thousands of others who are suffering  would soon be strong if thoy would  give Dr. Williams' Pink I'ills a fair  trial. Among tho many young ladies  who have proved the great worth of  this medicino is Miss Jossie Bcamer,  of Boyle, Ont. Miss Bonnier says :  "Somo J'ciirs ago I becamo very ill,  and my friends feared 1 was going into a decline. I was palo ; suffered  from terrible headaches: my appetite  was poor and 1 grew very thin. ' 1  became so weak that 1 could hardly  walk. II remained in this condition  for several months, during whicli  time 1 tried several medicines, but  none helped me in the, least. Then  my mother got mo some of Dr. Wil-'  linms' Pink Pills,, and' almost from  the outset thoy helped inc. As 1  continued the use of the Pills, the  severe headaches loft mc; my appetite  returned nnd T gained in weight. In  fact, 1 was soon enjoying' perfect  health, and have since continued to  do so. 1 attribute this entirely tn  the use of Dr. Williams' rink Pills,  and will be glnd if somo other weak  and ailing girl will profit by my experience."  Palo and sallow cheeks, dizziness,  headaches, palpitation of thc heart,  and tho fooling of weariness that afflicts so many young girls will soon  disappear if Dr. Williams' rink 7"*ills  nre used. These pills also euro rheumatism, dyspepsia, kidney ailments,  Rt. Vitus' dance, und the othor troubles that como from poor blood nnd  weak nerves.

Provincial   Health Officers  Visit llerllu's  Ilum-Dr, Anij-nt'i Paper on the subject und iMrcuHdliiii Thereon.  Just before the cl��se of the annual  meeting of tho Association of h-xe-  cutive Health Oilieers of Ouunio iho  members woro driven to tho Berlin  sewage faun, which thoy examined  with tho inmost thoroughness. Upou returning to the Court House a  paper was road to the Association  by Dr. Amyot on "fciewugo disposal." Dr. Amyot has been coniiuciing  a series of investigations at iho  Berlin farm during tho pust summer  on behalf of tho Provincial Boaid of  Health. Tho experiments havo boon  watched closely by Berlin's people, us  owing to tho peculiar sdtuutiun of tin  town tho *.juesl ion of soivngo dispo.-ul  thero is unusually ditllcult. Tho rapid  growth of the lost few years has increased tho quantity of sewage, until  there is now somo half-million gallons a yonr. Tliis [s much strongor  than ordinary domestic sewage, as  tlio waste of four large tanneries is  included. .Some years ago a. sowugo  farm wns acquired und it has boon in  operation since. A septic tank haa  been installed, but the plant has been  found insulllciont to meet -tho situation, and tho effluent to tho small  stream is not pure. Dr. Amyot not  only described tho experiments being  conducted there, but also dealt with  the general question of sewage disposal and the process of putrifac-  tion. Dr. Amyot said finally that the  reason that the Berlin septic tank  has not been effective in disposing of  more than 50 per cent, of the organic matter is that tho tank is altogether ^too small; that, in fact, one  tank is being used to do the work of  seven or eight, according to the results obtained with septic tanks . in  othor sewage disposal plants.  Mr. Thomas Macfarlane of Ottawa  read a paper on the treatment of i'o-  mestic sewage with moss litter. He  described a moss closet that, he said,  completely dries, disinfects and deodorizes organic matter, nnd at the  snrnu time preserves its full fertilising* valuo. The system, ho claimed, required littlo attention, and is  very inexpensive.  The discussion on sewage disposal  was opened by Mr. Willis Chapman,  C. V,., who suggested that, perhaps  after experimenting with many forms  of sewage disposal municipalities  might return lo the broad system  which had never boon abandoned in  favor of septic tanks, otc... but  merely supplemented by them, in old  country plants. ITo deprecated thc  parsimony of tlio average Councilman who feared to lay out enough  money to procure a proper plant. To  illustrate tho extravagant expectations of some people in connection  with septic tanks, ho said tliat nn  Alilorninn looked into a seplie tank  and said: "I don't believe this tank  is any good; I enn't see a blamed  living thing in it."  CANADA'S NEW WATERWAY.      ' *  Description of tho Plan-Recently Outlined  l'riim n IT. S. Viewpoint.  A Buffalo paper says that Canada  has revived the old project for tho  construction of a deep waterway fiom  Lake Huron to tho seaboard, though  b.v a different route from the much  liiIkcd-.Oi/;co;*_giun Hay canal. Thc new  plan of the DommioiPGoVcrim.unv  as outlined by' Sir.' Tarte, tl.-j Canadian Commissioner of Public Works is  to improve the French Itiver to Lake  Nipissing und secure a deep water  channel to Montreal by Improvement  of lhe Ottawa river. He sa.vs tliat  Sii.OOO.OOOJin.s already boon provided  for the improvement of the French  river and that a deep water channel  Lby the way of French river, Lake  Kipissing and tho Ottawa river will  call for an expenditure of $30,000,-  000.  The old scheme for a Georgian Bay  I'linal. width has boon agitated oil  and en for more than thirty years,  .was a Miorl cut to Lake Simcoc nnd  fiom theri' lo Lake Ontario. This  route, it was claimed, would save  .'UK) miles from any port on Lake Superior, I.a':e Michigan or Ln'o Huron lo Lake Ontario, and,-as tho Canadians claimed, would avoid the dangers of lhe St. Clair lints.  Tho main point, howovor, was to  dhcrl commerce from Lake Frio, as  it was admitted by th; advocates of  thc project that onco lhe boats fiom  J a'tcs Superior, Michigan'and Huron  entered Lal.o Erie tho commerce was  suro to go by the way of the Kiie  canal or'thu railway linos to tho  seaboard. Thoy argued that if this  commerce could bo kept out of Lake  Erie and thrown into Lake Ontario  by Way of tho (.b'-orgian Bay canal,  it would go down the St. Lawrence  and l.o lo Mio benefit of Montreal and  Quebec. 'I h*.* sumo results, it is now  -insistrd,_could - bo-obtain:* 1���by���th.i  French riv-er, Lake Nipissing and Ottawa river route, wliich the Canadian authorities appear to regard as  more feasible than that of tho cjeorg-  ian Bay.  Iho fact that the Canadians scorn  lo bo In cimu'st about coiHtruoiing  suih a waterway as is hero indicated  thoiild stir to action the peoplo intei o.=-t d in the maintenance of our  supremacy of lhe commerce of the  groat lakes.

If it is to iho political  ti'ul t'omjnei'i'ial interests of liw l'o-  1'iinion to have a purely Canadian  ruuio from La!:*; Huron to the sen-,  I oitrd, it ought to bo much more to  Ui.* interest of the 'United State's to  have a Purely American, route front.
