While mountain climbing near  Morridsey on Sunday, Percy Bean  noticed a deer and a fawn on  the  hillside near him.    He crept cautiously through the brush endeavoring to get a better view of the  pair and while thus engaged he  saw a huge eagle alight on a jutting  crag of rock a short distance away.  He investigated and discovered a  nest containing a pair of golden  eaglets.    He was unable to get to  the nest but he decided to gee the  eaglets   nevertheless.      Removing  his shoe laces he made a lasso and  attaching it to a sapling he aroused  the curiosity of the  birds by sundry yells of an  alluring nature.  One of the birds rubbered over the  cliff and  Percy forthwith  slipped  the noose over its head and unceremoniously yanked   it  off  its  perch.   He carried his prize down  the hill,  fighting off the mother  bird at frequent intervals.   Here  he met his brother John and  they  decided to return to the aerie and  secure the other bird.   This was  captured by the string method and  both  were brought   to   the   city.  The birds are about the size of a  full grown hen turkey and have a  spread of wings of about five .feet.  They are well feathered and would  have been able to fly before long.  They are thriving in captivity and  are   capable  of   consuming  large  quantities  of neck  steak.

Since his twelfth year  he has been gaekwar, or maharajah,  oi Baroda, one of. the great semi-  independent states oi Tndia. with an  area of 8,000 square miles and a population of about 2,000,000.

His highness-is on his  way from Yokahama aeross the r'aei-  fic to Vancouver, where he landed on  June 5, and is traveling through Canada to Niagara Falls and thence to  New  York."  The gaekwar is much of a man,  it  should   be   written,   making   up   in  brains  and  ab'lily   what ho lacks  in  stature and, it must- be confessed, in  looks.   His manners, too, are charming,  according   to   the   persons   who  met him. scoi.-dly last time.   He is a  close, keen observer and able to draw  his own deductions   from   what   he  sees.   He is not-at-all an'Indian ruler  of the old school, setnibarbaric, with  out power or the inclination to assimi  late modern ideas.   Indeed, it is "dii'*  . to this lack on the, part of the prod ���������  cessor of   the   present   gaekwar' thai  the latter owes his throne.   The preceding gaekwar was a gentleman wit'  mediaeval ideas about his relations 'o  the world in general and .the British  rule.'of  India in  particular.    Several ;,  times    he   rubbed    the   wrong   way J  against  her   majesty's  representative i  Cochrane ^as Now the Air of a Thriv-  ing Metropolis.  A year arid half ago Cochrane was  not on the map.   To-day it is a thriving,   bustling  community,   taking  ou  the airs of a metropolis, basing great  expectations on two facts, one that it  is the centre of a district rich in timber,  mineral,  water power, and agricultural  land,, and second that  it  is  the junction point of two great railways, ihe new National Transcontinental, building by the* Dominion Government,  and  the T.   & vN'.-O.,   built  I by  the Ontario Government.  ;    Kt-al    estate    always    furnishes    a  , measure  for   a   community's   hopes.  j And it is but a few months since the  T. & N. O. Commission auctioned off j  [ the  lots that constitute the townsite j  '��������� oi   Cochrane,   so   christened   at   that I  ] time   in  honor  of Ontario's Minister !  1 of  hands and  Mines,  the Honorable !  ; Frank.   The prices then realized were .  surprisingly high, but are vastly inferior to those already commanded for '  ! tne same lots. I  And a year and a half ago the site ,  was the forest primeval.   At that time '  lhe T. & N. O. rails were laid to with- i  in  a  couple of miles  of  the  present  town,    A hardware merchant   named  MuMauus, with the adventurous spirit of tlie pioneer, decided to establish J  u store hero.   He bought a carload or j  | hard ware   in   Toronto,   brought   it  to j  i the end of the rails, and proceeded to j  ! haul   it  by   team  along  the  trail   tor  i the rest of the journey.   Before lie hud j  it  transported he had sold oycr'vhu'f !  ��������� of the whole car.    AlcManus was the  i lirst   settlor.    To-day   he   is  still   t||i !  . lirst  citizen,   being  the  duly   elected'!  mayor of a  town of around 2,000 llJ-  ! habitants.  j Already Cochrane has its "oldest  I building." It is a section of the freight !  ; shed of the T. & N. O. Bail way, large  and .'respectable looking, and filled to j  tne ceiling with merchandise, chiefly j  railway supplies, canned goods, und ���������  canoes. Alongside this building Jih-e  the railway diamond, that cannot but  prove to be historic. From this diamond fur lines of railway stretch  away towards tho uttermost limits of  Canada. To the south lies Toronto,  to the west the great prairie and  Prince Rupert, to the east Quebec and  the Atlantic, and while this at present is the northerly terminus of the  T. &, N.O., the tracks have been laid  for a mile or so into the "last North.'..-  And there is not so much of this "last  North" either, 480 miles north of Toronto, Cochrane lies within J80 miles  of James Bay, It will be no serious  matter to connect Toronto up by rail  with James Bay the moment there is  any real reason to do so. Then we  will be getting on the train at Toronto's Union Station at 10.20 p.in, and  be at Arctic waters by the next night.  At'last Canada is conquering its geography.  For ��������� the present Cochrane is the  northerly jumping-off place. To reach  James Bay you take to the canoe.  Seven days is the journey, und it  holds no terrors for even a neophyte  in the woods. The other day a woman  and her baby set out for what was to  her a return trip over the route. The  .wife of a Hudson Bay Co.'s official on  James Buy, she has lived there for  twenty years without a break. She  came out at'last to see her former  friends near Wingham, Ont. But to  her James Bay was^home, and she  said she was glad forget back. - .  Place one leg of a compass at Toronto, the other at Cochrane, and  make a "circle. You will encircle Quebec city, Chicago, and skirt the boundaries of far-away Georgia on the  south.  To the south Cochrane has a regular  train service, one train each way  daily over the T.. & N. O. . Railway,  but east and west the National Transcontinental is still in the hands of the  contractors. Eastward for 100 miles  Foley Bros, have the route, and whil-*  a large section of the track is laid,  communication's'.cut'off by the Abi-  tibbi River, seven miles from Cochrane, where a big bridge is under  construction.  From Jest to Earnest.  Of his barristerial days Mr. Justice  Grantham, the famous English jud^e,  relates a remarkable coincidence. ,On  circuit, as junior in Croydon, he, with  some other'members of the Bar, put  up at a pastry-cook's in the High  street. Included in the company was  a clever pianist and vocalist, and hi;  singing attracted crowds to the house.  One night young Grantham opened  the "window and addressed the people  outside as his "constituents." Curiously enough,-eleven years later, what  the future judge had done in fun he  did in realty from the window of. an  hotel a lew yards awuy. Realism is  added to the anecdote when it is stated that 'on' itha't occasion he "wa: re-  | turned M.P. lor Croydou.  The  Impossible.  The Duke of Wellington wanted a  Certain piece of work done and instructed an olliccr of the Royal Engineers to do it. After examination'.the  officer informed -i.the duke that it wa**  impossible.  The duke sent for another officer, a  much younger man and attached to  another division of the army. This officer did what the duke required.   .  The next morning there appeared in  the "orders of the day" the following  -epigrammatic note: "He who in war  fails to do;'what'ho undertakes miiy  always plead accident, which invariably attends military affairs, but he  who declares a thing to be jmpossibjo  which is subsequently accomplished  registers his own incapacity."  A Beef Ham.  Sir Walter Scott wrote little about  meat and drink, but his description  in "Wu'verley" of a Scotch breakfast  is memoiable, says The London  Chronicle. "He found Miss Bradwar-  dine presiding over the tea and oof-  fee, the table loaded with warm bread,  both ol (lour oatmeal and barley meal  in the shape of loaves, cakes, biscuits  and- other varieties, together with  eggs, reindeer ham and beef ditto,  smoked salmon auc| many other delicacies." "And," as Samuel \Ve||er  would have observed, "a werry good  idea of a breakfast too." But has  any reader.ever seen a beef ham? Fortunately the sideboards in Scott'"  time were of substantial builr).  NOVA SCOTIA'S AWAKENING.

A short time ago the papers referred  to a wonderful collection of pictures  by German workiug men whieli had  been collected by Dr. Adolf Leven  stein, of Berlin. . An article dealing  with these pictures 'was published in.  The Strand Magazine, and the editor  of that famous monthly invited working men of this country who had devoted their leisure to drawing and  painting to send specimens of their  work. ,  The result of the invitation was  astonishing. Hundreds of painting-)  and drjwings were forwarded by British working-men. Dozens of trades  were represented, including' such diverse occupations as gardener, hou3e-  painter, lighterman, paperhahger,  compositor, railway porter, weaver,  coal-miner, waiter, and many others.'  A selection of these pictures is published in .the May number .of The  Strand,, und the general aitistic, merit  is such as to cause one to marvel that  so much talent lies hidden amongst  men whose daily toil secures for them  a wage averaging from $5 to $6 per'  week, 'lhe article published in 'lhe'  Strand commences with an initial picture-letter worthy of Walter Crane. It  bus been drawn by H. W. Ford, who  for eight years worked as-a bottle-  washer to a firm of .wine merchants,  und whose weekly-wage amounts to  $5.50.  But this humble artist ha3'higher  thoughts than bottle-washing. "Whenever  I  discover a  book like  Burke'3  .'Sublime and Beautiful'," he says, "at  tlie   lending   library,   I   reckon   life's  worth living.   But you don't get much  sympathy.   Some people imagine that  aitistic cellarmen,  bricklayers' labor  ei*3,  etc.,  are   simply    wasting  their  time.   Keeping pigeons or-poultry, or  canvassing for insuiance companies m  one's spare time, would, according to  them,  be much   more sensible.    But  they are narrow-minded, that is all."  A shoemaker named Robert Mallett,  earning $5.50 per week, has executed  a   beautiful   landscape   depicting   the  .village of Costessey, near Norwich. Ha  has .never  been  taught painting.    A  sign-writer employed by the gas company  at  Beckton  sent in  a, realistic  study of a lion.  "The Adoration of the  Shepheids," a striking picture paint  ed by Alfred Bonhcur, a house painter of twenty-four, earning $' a week,  "deserves great praise," to quote the  words of The Strand's art editor: "The  composition and lighting show a sense  of truth,* as well as of the dramatic  needs of the scene."  ..      .

' ���������  During the South African War Lord  Kitchener, who has returned, to England after eight years' work' abroad,  entrusted a certain captain with an  important commission. Unfortunate  ly, "the captain's horse cast a shoe.  Hence a disastrous delay. "Very sor-  iy," was the general's sarcastic comment, "but 1 cannot rest my plan of  campaign on a horse's shoe or an offi  cer's carelessness."

Just thirteen years ago, the business done  at the mining recorder's office in  New Denver, was thirty-two times  greater thau it is at the present  time. Still, there is yet concealed  within the steep mountains of the  silvery Slocan vast stores of mineral wealth, awaiting the day when  man will force it into the.markets  of the world.  In Ontario, it is unlawful to sell  liquor within five miles of a mining camp. That is why there are  so many fat blind pigs in Cobalt.  1 "I am a free trader," said Mr.  Edward Anderson in interviewing  Sir Wilfrid Laurier at Lauigan.  "So am T," raid the Premier.  So Sir "Wilfrid Laurier is still  a free trader. "Well, woll, let us  look at the bounties. During tlio  eighteen years prior to Juno .'30th,  JSiJG, a Conservative government  distributed $779,S<S2 in iron and  steel bounties. In the fourteen  years since' that date the Laurier  ministry has paid out.S15,07.'3,421  in the same way. The Conservatives spent on bounties 842,000' a  3'ear. The Liberals have ."pent on  bounties ^l,000,oOO a year."  This was ~a mere device to get  around their oft-repeated opposition pledges of lower customs  duties and of a tariff for revenue  only.  The Laurier government came,  into office on promises that it would  introduce a fiscal policy wholly divested of protectionist features. It  was to be a consumers' government, and the tariff was to be employed solely for the purpose of  raising revenue. - .Ou ' attaining  oflico they failed to iinplfiiient  their pledges. The old tariff wall  was not torn down. Instead, they  surrounded the industries controlled by their political allies with  new safeguards in the shtipe of  anti-dumping regulations. In addition to this, "as already indicated,  they subsidized the iron and .steel  manufacturers out of .the public  treasury on an enormously increased scale. Meantime their organp  essayed to hold the free traders'  and low-tariff men inline by periodically publishing free trade arguments which under the circumstances were the very refinement  of dishonesty.

What About The H.B.R.?  At Port Arthur, * Sir "Wilfrid  Laurier was certain that all the  grain grown in Western Canada  would go by the Eastern route.  To quote from the Toronto Globe's  report of his speech there :  - "Last year the "West produced  one hundred- millions of bushels,  yet the Minister of Agriculture,  who possesses a careful, conservative mind in matters of trade, last  month told the people of the great  metropolis of the British Empire  and the Commercial World that  within a few years the annual out-'  put of wheat would probably' be  over one billion bushels,'unci I believe him.

It is a  waste of time, money and energy,  to even attempt to foist such a law  upon a western public. Its passage means more intemperance  without benefitting anyone.  Judge E.   H.  Sullivan,   of the  Spokane   county   superior   court,  has been working on ' a longevity  theory for the past two years, and  he now announces that if he lives  two years more,  and is in good  condition at the end of that time,  he is going to live to be 120  years  of age.    He balieves tlmt members  of the human race will live to be  400   or   .000  years   old  in  time.  Judge-Sullivan  is sixty years of  age and as straight as an arrow.  He   ascribes   his    physical    and  mental  vigor to exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water and  breathing pure air.   "The matter  of life," ho says in explaining his  theory, -'is maiuly a question of  renewal.    Earring accidents, if we  take care of ourselves and don't  give up, wo should live many years  longer than   we  do  at this  time.  Old age is nothing more than fear,  ignorance and giving up.    There  is no need for old age in the body.  Just keep the joints  springy  and  the blood pounding through   the  veins and  arteries and the body  will renew.    My  rule is to drink  more water than   the foodstuffs I  eat and walk as much as possible."  M  THE AEROPLANE FLIGHTS  THE MILITARY INDIAN BATTLE NIGHT SHOW  CHUT JOSEPH and the BATTLE.
