The party experienced  considerable impediments-in their, pro  gress over the'trail, which  was   found  to be nearly impassible, owing   to   the  extreme styge of both the main stream  and'its    tributaiies   at  points 'where  they are crossed hy ihe -trail.    It   was  also found that recent high winds had  strewn   the   trail wilh   .fallen  timber,  which necessiated heavy chopping, cou-  struction^ of   uumeious'small   bridges'  across sloujdis aud small   streams and  frequent - rafting  and   swimming   tlie  larger ones.

POLITICAL LEADERS HOME "  Head of Opposition and Cabinet Members Return From" Europe, y  Quebec, Aug. 18.���������Hon. Messrs..  Fielding and Blair, Sir Louis Davies  and Sir Charles Tupper ani\ed this,  morning from Europe. Hon. Mr.  Fielding was not communicative.  He stated that he and his colleagues  had "been to Euroj e purely on a pleasure trip.. Sir Louis Du\ies said he  found trade indications excellent for  Canada, and anticipated an increase ,in  the volume of business between the  Dominion and the .Mother Country.  Like, everyone else, he had felt the  iiea\y weather encountered on the way  ��������� alt a good drill.  Mr. Blair was iu quite, a talkative  mood compared to his colleagues, but  he was guaided as to how far he unbosomed himself. He said that he had  neon little of Par is, but what he had  noon pleasid liim gre/.tly, and especially  the condition of lhe Canadian exhibit  and the attention it was receiving, it  could not fail to be the highest kind of  an ads'ei tisement for Canada, and  would attract much trade iu this direction.  Sending the South African contingents had also been a capital thing, and  was having a great effect. Un all sides  he heaid Canada spoken of, and only  in the highest terms of praise. She  was by long odds the most talked of,  and apparently the. most popular colony. Election rumors seemed to amuse  Mr. Bhiir considerably,     lie said that  More Bosps Suppendep.

Montreal, Que., Aug. IS.���������A well informed Liberal discussing general election possibilities, takes the view thai it  will lie practically impossible lo hold  the elections as early as October aud  strongly inclines lo the January id* a.  He had a talk with Laurier before he  left on his trip to the Maritime provinces, and from the plan of the campaign  the premier talked of undertaking, il  would be out of the question I'or him  to attempt to hold the elections as  eai ly as Octobei. lie spoke of devoting about as much time to (Quebec as  he spent, in Ontario last fall, which  would mean ueiii ly two months. IJo-  sides this he hopes to put in some time  in the Maratime pioviiices which major may not be taken lo mean tin; present trip. Then again, he spoke of  visiting the closer constituencies in  Ontario before election day. If Ihe  Premier undertakes all that, be could  hardly accomplish it in lime to get a  veidict in October. The premier does  not propose to go west of Lake Supeii-  o>*, giving Mr. Sifton full charge ol the  campaign Ui the wc.-l.      |  A detach-   ...  merit of 100 French marines who were'  lauded   from   a customs   cruiser,   are  reported to have   gone to Tien Tsin to  ���������'  take away the foreigners from Pekin.  The   Chinese   government, through-  Li Hung -Chang, made  application' to <r'  the  [lowers   for'   the   appointment   of    ���������  Minister. Conger or some other American official with' authority to open negotiations   fur   the'   establishment' of    '���������  peace and for   the ' fixing   of   definite  terms fur the settlement of the-trouble  and suggests   that 'Minister Conger as'   ''  American'commissioner,   based -ou theV-  idea    that   asf.Mr;.   Conger ^ has been "'"  rescued he will new have auYopportun   . -  ity    to   proceed    to   the  point where  negotiations   will be  held and conduct fc  then).    The  application'does not suggest   any   parl'iculii,r  terms no;* does its  ask   fur the .withdrawal of   the troops.-  It requests that' the negotiations shall- ,  ���������ibe for lhe purpose of bringing about a     ,  cessation of hostilities.  'An official despatch received yesterday from Li Hung Chang announces  lh.i entrance of lhe allies into Fekin  and the safety of the legations. It  was.also stated that before the city  was attacked the court had'gone to the .  west. This statement was made 1 y  ���������Wu Ting Pang, Chinese minister to  the United States.  1   The  Chinese 'army   is uowYadvan- ���������  cimr' from Pekin lo the southeast with  the object of  diverting the allies from"  the pursuit of   the Emperor and Dow-'  '  ager Einniess. _'  Ou August lljh the.

and giving assi ranees which   lead   the
convention committee to  be;iove   that,
their efforts are appreciated   and   that
the assembly will be'a large and,repre-
.sentiitive one.    The date   of  the   con-
vention is only two weeks distant  and-
it   is   necessary   that   each   provincial
electoral district proceed at once lo the
1 selection of delegates. Special trans-
��� 'portation rates have been arranged and
also  special   accommodation   rates   for
delegates during their slay in our city.
Speaking of the convention the Van
couver Province says:���f
"The inovenie'nt is very   well   timed,
for although there is', by-no   means  a
certainty that   the   Dominion   general
, election will take p!a:e before the   end
of the year,   the   circumstances   point
r   very strongly in that diieclion.     Lo 'is
necessary that the man   who is   to  be
selected as.cannidatc should have some
time for campaign work and   that   the,
party   organization   should   be  looked
The .Vancouver,. World   also .says:���
'The Liberals iu the. district are
numerous and influential and'if those
is unanimity in the ranks of th-', party,
and a popular man selected as lhe
"party's candidate, the certainty, of hi*

spin corresponding to the direction of
motion of the hand's of a watch, will
diil't to the right and vice versa. Tlio
effect is of the same character as
though a cylindrical pencil were made
to spin about its axi^. and projected
(while spinning) along the surface of a
tablecloth in the direction of its axis.'
The pencil would move longitudinally
in the direction of propulsion ; it
would also roll laterally in t.he dii ec-
, Lion of its spin, o The reason it rolls to
one side is that'it meets wilh more
frictional resistance on its, under, than
on its upper,,sin face. Well, it is quite
possible, and indeed- probable that a
spinning ballet rolls laterally over the
aii below it'fop a similar reason. The
ilifl'ei ences of frictional i esistance due
in difference nl density above and below
the axial line of the projectile where

not fail to be of great, practical interest. It seems pi obable too, aecoiding
lo Engineei ing",.'that the passage of a"
spinning projectile in ilo.-e proximity
to solid or liquid bodies vvill be found
in many cases to "influence drift. ' The
theoretical reasons'for (his belief may
be thus stated. A Spinning projectile
tends lo produce a-.spinning wind in
its immediate neighborhood. There is
a surface or skin adhesion between the
circninambitnt aid and . the piojectile
coirespondine to the adhesion between
a, ship's suiface and the water in which
it floats. When the layer of air in close
conlant. vvith a projectile i.s compelled
by" fiiclio'i'ial adhesioh to spin, that
layer cSirrre*-* the next adjacent layer
with it, and so on for some distance
away, with steadily-'dimishing effect.
There is little i eason ' to. doubt that
spinning .bodies with a sufficiently
rapid 'spin and slow axial velocity
would be effect (Yd by tint neighboi hood
of resisting.solid or1 liquid masses, and
Hie tendency Would be to cause both
to "soar" and " diifl."'

Nearly half' a century ago, before
the various provinces of Italy had been
consolidated   in  the   monarchical  gov-
��� eminent, * there ' lived in the city of
Genoa a 'young* in fin called Giuseppe
Giovanni. For lnauy'-ceriiViTius^tiTe family of Giovanni had been makers of
bells and chimes.
Giuseppe's father had made some of
the most famous chimes that rang'iu
Italy,^but had never, succeeded in accomplishing, his idea.    It had been his
,'grcat ambition to make a set'of chimes'
that the whole world would come tO(
he;u\ bells of heavenly tone. The elder1
Giovanni was a hot headed man, a
��� stanch' democrat and '.rather too free
of speech. A few .-ill chosen sentences
derogatory to tho' reigning powers
proved his downfall, and" one day "ns
Giuseppe was hard at work ou an odd
bell for the calhcdralVchimes a litter
bearing the form of his father, with a
'deadly stab wound , In his back, r was
brought into the dingy little'shop'and
set do-wn hefore the sou.   ,
"Giuseppe,',' said the dying man,
"keep out of politics aud live only, in
your work. Strive only for'your ideal,
nud in the end you may succeed where
your father failed. Aim for the very
highest, and may; God grant that you
accomplish it'" .  <
A year after his father's death found
* the,young artisan hard at work in his
���shop.    When  his father died,  he. had.
made  a Vow.to accomplish  the  ideal
,tliat.,h*s.��� father- had. vainly struggled
for. The bench at which lie was working was rough hewn, long, and broad
nnd littered with a confusion of tools,
bits of metal and unfinished bells.-' On
one corner of the bench' was a collec-
'tion of tuning forks .cf various sizes'
nnd metals. At ono side of the tuning
forks'lay a dusty old violin and a slender silver mounted flute. In tho rear
of, the shop were a small furnace, a
half dozen molds aud a heap of scrap'
inetal covered wilh dirt and rust. The
peiliiig"yflliu shop "consisted of several
heavy beams covered with, rough
boards lo which, hundreds of spiders
had fastened their webs. From .one
beam bung suspended an enormous
bell fitted wilh a long, slender'clapper
capped on the end with.a large brass
knob. This bell was inscribed with
strange characters, a relic' of the last*
crusade.        .
Giuseppe was poiishing away'with a
'sanded cloth at the surface of a' bell
that already shone lustrously iu the
dim light that struggled through the
little windows in the front of the shop.
His fingers fairly (lew as he turned,
twisted and rubbed the shiny bowl ot
metnl. A rousjh cloth succeeded the
sanded one and in turn made way for
one of soft texture.' Then the hell
was hung on a little metal frame somewhat like'a gallows in. construction.
'A drawer was opened aud a bundle of
cloth produced IVom its recess nnd
swiftly unrolled to reveal a highly polished and properly wrought little clap,
"per, which'the, young mechanic deflly
lined in Hie jnverteii howl of the bell.
A piece of twine wa 5 attached to a
little knob on the hull) of the chipper.
A gentle pull' find a .subdued silvery
lone filled Die' narrow confines of'the
f-hop. The tone swelled until It fairly
ran!,',,r'everb<'i\'iling from wall lo wall,
from rafter to rafter, seeking out cvory
nook nml cranny of Ihe shop, dying
away a! I'l-'t in a lit flo^shiidder of delight. The young GeiiQ.'in had clasped
his hands together and listened with an
agony of Intensity, revaluing his ears
for a .scintilla of a flaw in the tones,
and when Ihe silvery liriiinnnhuhilioii
had died avvny he leaned back with a
sigh of ������esl'iiio relief
liny after day and long into the
nights Giuseppe toiled with a fervor
nnd energy almo-t I'aiiatlc.'il. Ile ate
hut little and slept only when natural
fatigue compelled him. Ho'became thin
r.nd emaciated, nnd his eyes shone with
a feveri-d; luster, hut not for a single
day did he give up \iik work. One, by
one his hells kvvw into the size and
form he desired, and he gavt" to e.'ich
its proper (olio. 'Co him they were
things nuiiu.'ile. lie talKfd to theln,
caressed, petted nnd sco1d"d, and each
nl^'lit when he ceased his ';ihor he put
