General Meeting

"Wheat Mad"
Says Second Vice-Pres.
of the C.P.R.
In a statement published the
other day Mr. William Whyte,
second vice-president of the Can-
' adian Pacific Railway, said: The
experience of this season shows
the trouble is only farmers are
"wheat mad." They have made
money raising weat and have done
so without the labor entailed in
mixed farming. They go away in
the winter and leave the hired man
to look after the horses. The loss
which follows the exclusive raising
of wheat is universally recognized.'
The agriculturist is engaged not in
selling the products of the land, but
the land itself. He is not so much
engaged in tilling the soil as exploiting it. He is taking all out and
putting nothing back. This year
the company in the west built 600
miles of railway, 56 miles being
double track. Next year a similar
amount of construction work will
be carried out. This year Winnipeg
imported twelve million eggs and
.the C. P. R. is" importing for its
.dinners chickens from Chicago and
cream from St. Paul. This shows
that diversified farming is a neces-
The sudden fall in the temperature last weekend has at last given
to ' local skaters the opportunity
they weie waiting for. Up to a
day or two ago, Whittup's pond
was the only ice available, but now
the rinks are in full &wing. ^ Frost
sufficient to make good'skating is
such an uncertain quantity in this
district that most people are anxious
to take full advantage of it while it
Fullers' rink, although it has been
actually in use for some days, was
formally opened last night. There
was a large crowd present, and the
ice was in fine condition. - The
Kelowna Band had been engaged
to enliven the proceedings.
On Monday last a hockey match
was played on Whittup's pond between the Fire Brigade boys and
the Shamrocks. The result, after
a close game, was a win for the
former by 1 to 0.
The annual general meeting of
the Kelowna Farmers' Institute
was held last Wednesday afternoon
there being an unusually good attendance.
The president,'Mr. T. G. Speers
presented a report on the past
year's work, which from various
courses had not been quite so successful as might have been. He
complained of the lack of interest
shown bv members who failed fo
attend meetings when notified.
He thanked the Institute for the
honor they had done him in appointing him president during the
past year, and hoped thatthe coming year might be one of greater
A vote of thanks was tendered
Mr. Speers as retiring president.
Mr. Colin Smith, who at a recent
meeting was appointed delegate
to the Central Institute convention
at Victoria, which takes place next
week, asked about the Oregon box
|.which was being advocated by
some fruit growers in the valley.
He wished to know if the institute
desired him to support its use
wheh the matter came up before
the convention.
The matter was   discussed    at
[some length, and it was finally decided that Mr. Smith be  asked   to
seek  further information  on   the
subject when in Victoria.
A long discussion ensued on the
financial standing of the Institute.
The statement as presented showed a deficit of $4.34.
Mr. W. H. Raymer, to whom a
considerable sum of money should
have been^due for rent, said he
had not rendered any statement
of rent due for some time past
chiefly because he had not been
able to keep trac^ of the meetings
many"of which had been held*t,in
his absence without notifying him.
As the Institute was short of funds
however, he offered to forego any
rent which was due to him up .to
the present time.
This generous offer was received
with applause, a hearty vote of
thanks being accorded Mr. Raymer
for his kindness.
The next business being the
election of officers, Mr. T. G. Speer
said that he regretted he would be
unable owing to other business to
accept nomination as president for
the coming year.
Mr. C. S. Smith asked that the
election of officers be postponed
until consideration had been given
to certain proposals which were to
be made respecting the reorganisation of the Institute. The Institute;
he said, had not for some time past
been in a very flourishing condition,
and some few of the members had
got together lately to see if they
could not formulate some scheme
by which it could be put on a
better footing, and made the success which it ought to be in a district like this. They had tried to
put their ideas into some convenient
shape to submit to the present
meeting, and had drawn up certain
suggestions which he hoped the
members would discuss.
Briefly the scheme sought to extend the usefulness of the Institute
by holding meetings and demonstrations at various points in the
country. The director appointed
in each district would look after
the meetings heldvthere, see that a
record was kept of the meeting,
and that transportation was provided from Kelowna.andj back for
the lecturer or demonstrator..
The proposal met with hearty
support and the resolutions on
being submitted to the meeting
were carried unanimously.
Mr. Smith considered that reorganization on these lines would
result in a very much larger membership. They had at present
some 67 members on the books,
where in a district like this they
should have three or four times
that number.
Mr. M. Hereron agreed with the
proposal, but he considered that
the directors should be appointed
at once instead of leaving their
selection to a future meeting as had
been suggested.
It was decided to proceed at
once with the appointment of
officers and directors. The following were elected :
President—Dr. Dickson.
Vice-Pres.—H. W. Raymer.
Sec.-Treas.—John Leathley.    ■"
Director for Kelowna—L. Holman.
Director for Okanagan Mission—
C. Smith.
Director for Benvoulin—D. McEachern.
Director for Rutland — J. W.
Director for Ellison—M. Hereron.
It was found impossible to elect
a director representing the K. L. O.
bench at the time. It was left for
the- directors to fill the vacancy at
an early date.

On Tuesday evening last the
Kelowna Musical and .Dramatic
Society, under the conductorship
of Mr. H. W. Whitehead, gave a
highly successful rendering of
Handel's "Messiah." To many
people Christmas seems hardly like
Christmas without an opportunity
of hearing the great composer's
beautiful masterpiece, and the decision of the Society to produce
the "Messiah" was hailed with
The first part of the evening was
taken up by a choral concert,
which opened with an orchestral
selection, Mendelssohn's "Pilgrims'
March." Mr. Ferrier, who is a new
addition to local musical talent,
sang " Nazareth." This was followed by the chorus, " O gladsome
Light" (Sullivan). A soprano solo,
"The Gift," by Mrs. P. Brooke, who
was in particularly gdod voice, and
a selection by the orchestra brought
the first part of the programme to
a close.
After a brief interval selections
were given from the '* Messiah."
The oratorio is, of course, too long
to give more than a very small
portion. The selection, too, had to
be made with an eye' to the principals-available, but sufficient was
given to show the beauty of the
work and to make one long for
more. Most of the best-known
numbers were taken.
The tenor recitative, "Comfort
,y^! arid the,,solo, "Every Val
ley," were; weft suhg"by/Mr.*''
Mr. Macbean, who was to have
taken the bass solos, was unfortunately suffering from a <_old, and
the part had to be omitted.
The bulk of the work fell on Mrs.
Brooke, soprano, and Miss Cockrell,
contralto. Mrs. Brooke's voice is
well adapted for this class of music,
and her rendering of " I know that
my Redeemer liveth," and also of
"Rejoice," were especially appreciated by the audience. The contralto solos in the "Messiah" have
a richness of sympathetic expression and emotional quality which
well   brought   out   bv   Miss

With Anarchists
in London
Hold Hiding-place Against a
Force of Police and Soldiers
![- Six Dead and Many Are
an opportunity I London was the scene of a most
startling arid desperate encounter
Tuesday, which seemed scarcely
credible. Holding at bay for
hours hundreds of policemen, troops and guardsmen, a band of alleged anarchists, almost in the
heart of the city maintained their
defence until their fortress collapsed under the attack of flames and
burned the criminals in the ruins.
Six bodies were found in the wreckage.
Several firemen were injured
and a number of persons were
wounded by the bullets of the beseiged. The affair, which constitutes one of the most remarkable
criminal outbreaks London has
ever known, took on the demen-
sioriis of a battle. It began early
and continued until the afternoon
when the civil authorities at last
were masters.
Vast crowds gathered in the
streets leading to the scene of activities while word of the desperate
character of the fighting ran throughout London, causing widespread excitement and alarm. At
one time the beseiging pagy called
for more guns but these were not

at the back of the yard adjoining,
while the house continued to fire
upon the party.
As the situation became more
serious, the onlookers were driven
back and a square hurriedly cleared for a radius half a mile about
the scene. The soldiers hept up a
fusilade directed at the windows
of the house and the men within
responded continuously.
Meanwhile loads of straw were
hurried to the place for the purpose of starting a fire and smoking
out the beseiged men. Piles of
straw were lighted near the build"
ing and the flames soon comunic-
ated themselves to the house, the
fire brigade Was then sumn.oned
and diyided its energy between

"Heshall feed Hi3 flock," arid "O
Thou that telle8t."
The chorus, although lacking
somewhat in weight of numbers,
especially noticeable in the triumphant "Glory to God!" was yet
well balaanced, and showed evidence of careful training. The
orchestra was rather incomplete,
but ably supported., the choir, and
desides did some fine work in the
overture and the beautiful Pastoral
Symphony. Mr. Macbean plaped
first violin, Miss Laidlaw, second.
Mr. Tollit presided al the harmonium, and Mr. Boyd at the piano.
Altogether the production reflects great credit upon the Society
and we should be glad to hear
that the "Messiah " was to be made
an annual event.

its height.
The -anarchists, who recently
had slain two policemen, occupied
a four-story brick house on Sidney
street, a narrow thorougfare. The
police discovering their headquarters, surrounded, the place and
were met with a volley of shots,
two detectives'] being wounded,
one seriously. One hundred shots
had been fired^when the house
caught fire and the fire brigade
was summoned.   /
The police, after locating the
men, and anticipating trouble, had
ordered the houses in the immediate neighborhood to be vacated
before daylight and throwing a
line of officers around the square
had allowed no one to" approach
within a hundred yards of the
scene of the expected battle.
The police lines had been drawn
so tightly together that the inmates
han no chance to escape. The
police were .satisfied that the plac&
contained the two murderers wanted and were satisfied also that the
assassins were fortified in the house
and were supported by a number
of friends. Since the murder of the
policemen in the tunnel in Hound-

Trouble started this morning
when Sergt. Leeson who was
watching the premises was fired
upon and wounded in the lungs.
In an almost incredibly short time
a cordon of police armed with revolvers appeared and was met
with a volley from rapid firing revolvers. Police Superintendant Ot-
taway took charge ofthe reinforcements and police guards from all
parts of the city poured in and
took up positions commanding the
house. Wherever the officers appeared a volley of bullets shattered
the pavement.
A detachment of sixty men, with
one offiicer and three non-commissioned officers of the Scotch Guards
from the Tower arrived and were
severed with ball cartridges. They
fired a few rounds into the building. There was a lull for five.minutes and then the beseiged started
firing again. It was impossible to
tell the number of the beseiged
party. They were armed with rifles
and revolvers arid fired with great

The " City " of Rutland one  of
the  day dreams of the optimists
living within the shadow of Black
Mountain, is already beginning to
take more definite shape.   Following the steady movement of lot
holders into the district during the    -
past year, and the consequent increase in the numbers of the rising
generation^   it    has    been    found*
necessary to increase the school
accommodation, and the teaching   '
staff with'the opening of new year'
session.   At the close of last session
there wer£ close upon sixty pupils

have just moved into the district,
making increased accommodation
absolutely necessary.   The Department of Education at Victoria has
notified Mr. S. Sproul, the secretary,
of their intention to erect another
large room similar to the one now
in use.   The Rudand Hall building,    -
adjoining is. to  bes. rented meanwhile, and an assistant teacher has
been engaged.ffMr. .JfjW. Harris,
who has recetitly been in charge
of the day school fat   Summer-
land, and who comes from the Old
Country, with firs class certificates,
has been appointed principal, with
Miss McGee of Benvoulin assistant.
Rutland is not behind when

The Way Mother Nature Charms Away
Our Conscious toss.
How do we go to sleep? How does
Mother Nature charm a way onr consciousness? First of nil she throws
her spell on those centers of our bodies
that preside over the muscular system, causing one group of muscles
after another gradually to collapse.
Thereafter various powers of mind
succumb In regular order. First we
lose attention and judgment, then
memory goes, and imagination wanders away In reveries of its own.
Ideas of time nud space cease to control thought as gentle sleep, the nurse
of our life, drnws nearer Then comes
the turn of the special senses, beginning witb sight. Myelitis close, and
eyeballs turn upward and Inward, as
if to shut out all light, the pupils contracting more and more as slumber
steals over ns.
The turn of the ears comes; the power of hearing fades away. T,he heart
beats and breath Is drawn more and
more slowly. The heart beats from
ten to twenty times less frequently
ertfch mluute, or 5.000 times less during
the night, while breathing Is not only
slower but much more shollow than
during waking hours. Temperature
falls hy perhaps 2 degrees, and the
body loses three times less heat than
when awake. And so at last sleep
covers a man all over—sleep that shuts
up sorrow's eye.—London Express.
Both In Front ind Behind.
A police magistrate recently learned
that It Is possible to be back of a person even If you are in front of him.
The means of this startling intelligence wns a stout German conductor,

"You were on your platform and yet
you say that the prisoner was Id back
of you?" said tbe puzzled magistrate.
"Was the prisoner lu the car?"
"Well, then, he must have been in
front of you."
"Nelti." said the man patiently. "I
a iu the conductor."
"Then." exclaimed the magistrate,

prisoner was In the car. Now, how tn

The Millenium of peace and
good will is not yet in sight. The
year 1911 opens under conditions
that must cause the advocates of
universal peace much concern. Insurrections in Mexico and Honduras; threats of revolution in Spain;
the fate of the new republic of
Portugal in doubt; discontent in
Greece; Korea sullen and discontented; China and Japan at dagger
points; Britain and Germany,
watchful and suspicious; the United States and Japan sparring for
wind; Russia dormant but preparing ; Turkey full of plots and assassinations ; Austria only awaiting the death of the aged Emperor ; and riots and strikes disturbing the peace of France. In no

A bulletin the census office issued
gives the total area of field crops
grown in Canada this year. as 32,-
711,062 acres, and the value of
crops as $507,185,500, compared
with 30,065,556 acres and a value
of $532,992,100 last year. Wheat,
oats and barley had last year a
total area of 18,917,900 acres, with
a value of $289,144,000, and this
year, with an area of 20,992,900
acres, the value is only $248,738,-
300. The decrease in value is
$40,405,700, which is $14,599,100
more than the decrease for all
field crops, and a lower production
of 18,591,t)00 bushels wheat, 58,-
686,000 bushels oats and 9,981,000
bushels barley through drouth and
heat in Manitoba, Saskatchewan
and Alberta, from an area sown
greater by 1,85 7,300 acres, accounts
for the whole loss. The yield of

compared with 364,279,000 bushels

Henry Kipp, fruit-grower, Chilliwack, and Jacob Zinck, fruit-grower, Sardis, were, on information
laid by Dominion Fruit inspector
D. M. Robertson of New Westminster, each fined $20 and costs,
or in default one month's imprisonment for violation of the Fruit
Marks Act. The former was
charged with falsely marking boxes
of fruit, thereby giving a false representation of the contents of the
boxes and the latter with false
marking and false packing.
In bright but bitterly cold weather, the striking car men of Winnipeg made a demonstration in
numbers last week, parading the
streets, six hundred strong, headed
by a brass band. No incident
marked the march. The strikers
rely on getting solid union support.
The snowfall has been heavier
this week than in any week for
many years. It has been a long
time since there has been snow
on the level as deep as at present.
This is generally taken to mean
that the country is practically assured of sufficient moisture to make
next season a good one.
It is the intention of the Cana>
dian Pacific management to instal

hundred to something over 300
While returns are not yet complete it is estimated at the department of immigration that the total
arrivals in Canada for the year
just closed have been approximately 350,000, of whom 150,000
came from the United States. It is
estimated that the immigration in
the next twelve months will touch
the half million mark.

In the recent dairy farming competition for the province, the much-
coveted gold medal and trophy
cup have been awarded to J. M
Steves, of Steveston, the silver
medal to Alexander McQyarrie, of
Armstrong, and the bronze medal
to A.C. Wells, of Sardis. This
competition was instituted about
one year ago and has excited the
greatest interest among dairy farmers since its inception. The cup is
held for one year by each fortunate
winner, but upon being thrice won

The Strenuous National Game of the
American Women.
There is always something Impressive about a crowd that is swayed by
a single emotion. You get an impres
sion of force, says Mary Heaton Vorse
in Success Magazine. These women,
who a few moments ago bad been
quiet shoppers, formed a mob. They
swayed and pushed.as though moved
by a common impulse toward a table
where were the embroideries. From
their throats came a little dull growl,
a curious noise—the whisper of a mob.
The noise of a mob in joy or in an-
ger or In fright or just its restless
murmur us it waits is different from
any other noise that comes from the
human throat-quite distinct of a curious animal timber. I beard it once
on Ihe occasion of the throwing of a
bomb, again from a crowd waiting for
a bank to open and a third time in a
theater when Are had been called,

Made by « Clever Workman on a Challenge From Royalty.
Some years ago tbe czar, bearing of
the marvelous inventive genius of a
Polish mechanic, determined to pat
him to the test and accordingly caused
to be forwarded to bim a few copper
nails, some wood clippings, a piece oi
broken glass, an old cracked china cup,
some wire and a few cribbage board
pegs. The box was accompanied by
tbe request tbat (be I'ole should transform these unpromising articles into a
timepiece.        "
It was a challenge and one tbat few
watchmakers would have cared to take
up. But it would have taken a harder
task than this io daunt tbe Pole. He
set to work on tlie unpromising materials and out of tbem fashioned a
watch tbat was quickly dispatched to
the czar. Just eight hours after be
began bis work of transformation tbe
watch started on its Journey to St Petersburg, where It arrived safely, to
the great delight of tbe czar.
It was a most unique timepiece. It*

The practice ot putting money under

Is tbe shadow of an older tragic custom. Tbe money stands theoretically
for tbe ransom ot tbe human being
who by ancient superstition should
have been buried in its place. Otherwise, it was held, tbe building would
not stand firm and endure.

Millais' Faith In Himself.
Tbe artist Millais. writes J. B. Reid,
was as open and frank as a boy in expressing his belief in himself. Wben
the Ley land collection was on view,
previous to its dispersal. Millais went
to see It and openly asserted tbat his
"Eve of St. Agnes" was tbe best picture there. This egotism was part of
bis character, a thing It was impossible
to resent on account of the manner in
whlcb it was expressed. Millais never
lost the self confidence of youth, in
this respect, as In many others, be remained a boy to tbe end. Neither was
the egotistic note confined to art matters. His public speeches were invariably about himself. His conversation on all subjects was impregnated
wltb the essence ot a sincere conviction of hia own authority to speak.
He liked to be always right, and such
were bis grasp of realities and bis
power of reasoning that it required
very strong evidence and a very clever
argument to convince bim tbat he was
wrong.-Youth's Companion.

Passing of Winter Marked by Burning
of the Boegg.
Switzerland still preserves some interesting customs, one of which is the
spring fete annually celebrated by
curious and quaint ceremonies. One
would hardiy think that in such a
hustling commercial city as Zurich its
citizens would find time for "keeping
up" the memory of an affair that
must date back to primitive time3.
i.ut a day is set apart every year for
just such a festival, called the "Burning of the Bocgg," which traditionally marks the 'Passing of Winter." It
is also called, locally, "Sechselauten/'
meaning "six o'clock ringing feast,"
because its connm;..cement is announced by the cvthcdral chimes at
that early hour.
Tlie festival this year began with a
procession of boys and girls toward
the great public .square. The boys,
dressed as picrrot?, dragged the car
on which the portly toy snow man
stood. The pierrots were followed by
knights in armor, members of various guilds in their picturesque costumes, cow herders, iishermen, clowns
und others. The Bocgg was a huge
ligure made of wood, coverad with
cotton wool, and stuffed with crackers and gun powder. The procession
wound through the streets on either
side of the river Limmat, and made
its way to the square.
The figure, emblematic of spring,
followed and was greeted with the
welcoming cheers of the throngs gathered to witness the ceremony. Maidens in appropriate costumes escorted
tlie triumphal car bearing the Goddess of Spring.
The procession ending its march,
the Boegg was placed on an immense
pile of wood. An intermission in the
ceremonies occurred for lunch. In
the afternoon a more important procession and function took place. The
city guilds, in quaint attire, formed
in line, each member dressed in the
costume of his craft, as in the medieval days. These were followed by a
long line of highly decorated floats,
among the most noteworthy being
those representing the Golden Calf,
the Ceres, and tlie Goddess of Harvest. The citizens played practical
jokes on each other during the day.
When the procession reached the
square the throng was immense. Near
the Boegg stood several men, ready,
at the prearranged signal, on the
stroke of six o'clock, to blow up the
figure after it had been set on fire.
When the sound of the explosion was
heard the people cheered, for it was
an intimation that winter's reign was
over, and that spring had begun.
The flames leaped up and were reflected on the placid surface of the
lake, where, from the innumerable
boats, fireworks added to the liveliness of the scene.
The guild houses, of which Zurich
has many handsome examples, were
thrown open to visitors, and the evening was devoted entirely to dancing
and banqueting. Then the celebrants
retired, ready next morning to resume
their usual business.

A Whale's Terrific Battle With a
School of Thrashers.
The Unequal Fight Was Ended by the.
Death of the Courageous Mammal.
Who Was Torn to Shreds by Her
Ferocious Assailants.
Early one moriiin;,' v.hil.> engaged In

noting the iuii.ii'ii.su size- of the two
pai'Hiits and the inciliodiral regularity
with which colli inns of water rose
from their blowhole* :iml tii«n resuni
ed their labors.
An hour or so later -about !) o'clock,
to he exact the men were startled ly
.an extraordinary noise, 'apparently
coming from the eastern end of the Is
land, a noise unlike anything they had
ever heard hefme. liro)i;iiug their
tools and staring toward the east.
they heheld sm.i a sljiht as It falls to
the lot of few people to witness
There, not 500 win's from the shore,
was being waged a hat tie to the death
—a fight.between the .;reai cow whah-
previously seen and a school of thrash
er sharks. The calf was swimming
about distractedly, but the old hull
had disappeared, having basely desert
ed his family at the first approach ot
The sharks, as though acting in ac
cordance with some preconcerted plan
had completely surrounded (he two
whales and. apparcu.l;. realizing that
nothing was to lie feared from iIn-
calf, concentrated all their efforts upon
the cow. Again and again they chaig
ed in upon her, their Jaws-snapping
tearing at her m.ghiy sides until the
sea was red with blood. Meanwliili-
the cow lushed her tall furiously, hurt
ing up sheets of reddened water and
occasionally crashing down witb terrific- force upon one of her voracious
opponents. Maddened with ff.iin and
rage, she dashed this way and thai,
but the sharks bung to her side witb a
persistency and ferocity that made the
fascinated onlookers shudder. Now
and again the wildly lashing tail would
catch one of the assailants, driving It
beneath the waves—uo doubt killed or
disabled-iiut the reinnlnder rushed lu
undismayed, tearing viciously at the
mammal's bleeding flanks or butting
her with the force of battering rains
Presently the spellbound spectators
realized two facts—first, that the calf
had disappeared in the melee and, second, that the tortured whale was uu
doubtedly becoming weaker. It waa
obvious that the unequal struggle
could have only one ending. Still,
however, she fought on doggedly, winning admiration aud sympathy by ber
exhibition of hopeless courage. Alter-'
ing her tactics, by a supreme effort she
hurled her whole great bulk clear of
the water for a moment, aud the fascinated onlookers beheld the sharks
hanging from various parts of her
gleaming body by their serrated teeth
Then dowu she went again witb a
crash like thunder, and for an Instant
whale and sharks were hurled amid
masses of foam, heavily colored with
the poor mammal's lifeblood. Rising
again, she essayed another change ot
plan, making for (he rocks and desper
ately striving to rub oft the clinging
{.■■arks against their edges But the
thrashers were equal to tlie occasion
While those ou the outside maintained
their grip, the others dived under their
enemy nnd charged her anew, tearing
at ihe wiiaie's slue in all ecstasy oi
ferocity that was bloodcurdling lo witness.
More and more feeble grew the
whale's struggles, and at lust, to the
heartfelt relief of the spectators, foi
bet death fight had been terrible to be
hold, the greut body turned over and
sank beneath the red fluted water
The unequal battle was over, having
lasted fr>ui 9 o'clock until noon, as
awe Inspiring a contest as man was
evil privileged to witness. The men
went back to their work greatly itu
pressed by the unique spectacle, aud

Forty eight hours afterward the
whale's body, which bad lu tbe wean

to the surface and exploded with n
roar like a miniature powder magazine, causing tbe startled people to

The buzzard usually chouses a ledge
on a cliff for an eyrie, lm! In certain
parts of Wales there are a few well
used nests in trees, and as they are
generally used by some bird of prey
each season they grow to an enormous
size. The buzzard does not. as a rule,
use the same nest two consecutive sea-
sous, but returns in ti the third, and
after that allows another season to
elapse before occupying it again.
Two nests are often constructed lu
one dingle, and an amusing Incident
happened a few years ago in one of
these places. The hen laid one egg in
each uest. and, as it was quite impossible for ber to sit ou both at once, we
did her a good turn hy placing one of
these eggs In the nest witb its companion. Tbe result of our kindness
was that a collector passed by about
two hours afterward and put both
eggs in his collecting box.
When 1 thought the matter over 1
came to tbe conclusion that that old
buzzard was not half such a fool as
we took ber to be. and if we had left
the eggs as we found them tbe bird
might bave had a chauce of rearing

Napoleon and Wellington and an Exchange of Residences.
In the days before the Suez canal
was opened to the world St. Helena
was a frequent port of call for British
vessels bound to and from India and
the far east. This custom, explains
Harper's Weekly, was caused by the
need bf obtaining supplies for the long
voyage, and it was therefore for this
reason tbat the ship which on one occasion bore tbe Duke of Wellington,
then Sir Arthur Weliesley, returning
to England from lnd:a. touched at the
island. The great commander spent
one night at Jamestown at tbe house
of a Mr. Halcotn
Ten years later Napoleon Bonaparte
landed to begin his six years of exile
and was assigned to ibe same room
thatjiia conqueror at Waterloo had occupied. This coincidence came to the
knowledge of the duke at I'arls during
its occupation by the allied forces, and
be dispatched the following letter to
tbe British ofticei then iu command at
St Helena:
"1 am very much obliged to you for
Mr. Simpson's book, wtikb I will read
when I haven moment's leisure. I am
glad you bave taken the command at
St. Helena, upon which I congratulate
you. You may tell 'Bony' that I find

An ancestor ot tbe great Tolstoy was
an officer in tbe Russian army and a

of bis friends wben i'atit himself entered aud for some moments looked on
unperceived at tbe antics ot tbe young
man. Tolstoy Anally ruined and, beholding tbe emperor, bowed his bead
and was silent.
"Go on, str," said Haul. "Continue
the performance.''
Tbe young man hesitated a moment,
and then, folding bis anus and imitating every gesture and intonation ot his
sovereign, be said:

Scottish Labor for
Grand Trunk Rly.
Mr. W. Stewart, of the firm of
Foley, Walsh and Stewart, the contractors for the mountain sections
of the Grand Trunk Pacific^ Railway, which will represent an outlay of many millions of dollars,
has left for Scotland to secure labor
for the gigantic undertaking.
There is very little labor available oil the Pacific coast and public sentiment will not tolerate,' neither will the Dominion or Provincial Governments sanction the importation of Asiatic labor. Mr.
Stewart is hopeful of getting the
five thousand men he needs to
build the road through the mountains. He says these men, accustomed to the mountains of their
native land, will make first class
settlers after the road is constructed.
"They will cost us more" said
Mr. Stewart, "than Asiatics would
have done, but the railway and
the country will have the advantage,
of five thousand acclimatized settlers of the finest race the world
has produced."

The looking glass, win.;Iut u W'US or

nurses and physicians give it credit
"All things considered. 1 think it a
good plan to give a sick 'person a

"Of course the Indulgence must be

Is really looking seedy a turn at the

with new hope. It makes bim feel
that be Isn't quite so far gone as ba

It Was Worse In the Eighteenth C«n<
tury Than It Is Now.
'ibe tipping babit is bad enough nowadays, but in the eighteenth century it
was a greater evil than it Is at tha
present time. A writer In the Corn-
Dili Magazine tells some stifles to illustrate lUe'oId condition of things.
ln Edinburgh in 1760 tipping became
such an evil tbat the Society ot Clerks
enacted tbat all servants should ba
torbiddeu to take tips and members
be forbidden to give them. This example was followed by other clubs and
societies. Today there is a rule ia
most clubs against feeing the servants.
An eccentric Irish gentleman, Lord
Tanffe, used to attend his guests to
tbe door, and If they offered any money to tbe servants wbo were lined up
wltb tbe guests baggage the host
would say, "If you give, give it me,
tor it was 1 that did buy tbe dinner."
A well knowu colonel while sitting
at dinner inquired tbe names of tba
host's servants. "For," said be, "I
cannot pay tbem for sucb a good dinner, but 1 should like to remember
tbem in my will."
Another eccentric gentleman after
patiently redeeming bis' bat, sword,
cane aud cloak to tbe very bottom of
bis purse turned to tbe two remaining servants wbo were waiting obae-
quiously. each with a glove, and said
affably: "Keep those. I will not trouble to buy ilietn hack. Tbey are old
and not worth a shilling."
A King's Trick.
King OuKtavus 111. ot Sweden bad

visit to (.ermiiny, and as soon as tha
Duchess ot Mecklenburg beard of bis
approach she prepared fetes io bis
iiKiior. Hut t.ustavus, who disdained
the petty courts of the small rulers,
sent two of bis attendants—a paga
named I'eyron and Desvouges, a valet
who bad formerly been an actor—to
lie. entertained by tbe duchess. Tha
two personated tbe king and his minister. Baron Sparre, and sustained tba
characters throughout. Tbey accepted as their due all tbe homage meant
for their master, danced witb tha
'.Mecklenburg ladles wbo were presented to tbem. and Peyron went so far
as to ask one of tbe ladles for ber portrait. Meantime Gustavus was enjoying bimseif elsewhere in secret.
Richmond Castle.
Richmond castle was originally one
of ibe strongest of Norinau keeps. It
was probably founded by Alau Rufus,
oue of tbe sons of tbe Duke of Brit-
tuny, wbo took a promiueut part ln
the suppression of tbe Saxous. At a
later age tbe castle passed Into the
possession of Edmund Tudor, wbo
married Margaret Beaufort and became the father of Henry VII. Henry
was born Barl of Richmond, and be
bestowed the title upon tbe magnificent palace wbicb wben king oft England be built upon the banks of tba
Thames. Thus tbe Richmond beloved
