Maggie, fi property now being  developed above Cody, passed  through en route to Nelson last  Monday to purchase another ore  car and a large quantity of steel  rails. A strike of great importance wa5* made a f'jw days ago  whilst' sinking was going on. A  new spur was uncovered with a  showing of 2-1 inches of clean galena. Mr. Theo S. Hod kin, Mr.  Diick's attorney, will arrive in a  few days from Milwaukee to inspect the property.  .From the Bluebird comes most  excellent reports. This property  has been shut down for several  vears, but this summer a lease and  bond was obtained by a syndicate  of local men, consisting of Messrs.  P. and R. Mc Landers, J. A. Mc-  Landers, J. A. McKninoii, R.  Turner find A. Forn-st, and drifting on the lead they have struck  20 inches of galena ore, a car of  which is now sacked for shipment.  .A few month-) ago we reported :sistance.  that the Goodenough group had  been bonded by a syndicate of S.iu-  don minuig men, who.-e program  was to crosscut the rich Ueco-  Goodenough led^e, from which the  riehoc-t. cu* of ore said to have been  shipped from the di.-trict was extracted. The cro-scut at the time  of che syndicate taking up the  property was in 200 leec, and this  has now been driven for another  200 feet. We have it from wh u we  ���������.'ou-iider a reliable source that 11  inches of ore lias been struck, but  we do not think, that they are iu  far enough yet for she main ledge  to have been tapped. The cue is  of a much lower grade.���������SUjcmh  Mining Review.    - i  Kssington  would  be one  of the  best towns in  British  Columbia if  the  Japanese  were excluded from  fis-hing on   the Skeena  river,   and  the 'Chinese in  the  canneries replaced by Indians  or   whites-   It  docs not  require   much   argument;  to convince an open   mind that the  presence of tlie Japanese here is  on the increase,  and   that if  matters are allowed to go  on; the percentile of white and Indian li-iher-  meu will become-  lamentably' less  with   each  year's  operations.     It  will'mean that the  fisheries, both  deep aud river, will'be handled by  the Japanese.    Once  the  Oriental  opens his eyes  to  the fact that he  al-o is not debarred f .'om  selecting  a cauuery sight and   operating the  same, then will tho  canuers' association realize that  the  Mongol is  treading on  h!s  top,s.    This  is no  dream.    It is stern reality:    What  bett?r proof is needed to bring this  juatter home than  the operations  of the   Ikcda Bay Mining company  on Queen Charlotte  islands.    It id  purely Japanese  from  top  to bottom,   with a Japanese   physician  and a Japanese mail  carrier.    The  company is capitalized at a million  dollars and is a close corporation. -  They have over one hundred men  working   ami   shipments   already  made show   tlie  properties  to  hi*  very rich.    It must  follow  that if  the Japanese can mine successfully  on a large scale  iu this  province,  tliey can also, with   equal  success,  conduct a business for  which they  appear   to   be   specially 'adapted.  When this conies about the cauners'  association will be sending delegations to Ottawa for government as-  Port Essiugton Sun.  Santa Clans is in town and will  unpack a large stock of dolls and  toys at the store of J. L. Coles.  The Columbia cigar is in.icle fivm  Canada's Defences.  The nervousness  of  British Columbia at the alien inroad is partly  due to a reason  which  one glance  at the map of Canada  will  render  intelligible.

ANOTHER MAMMOTH LINER.  BEDS AND   BEDMAKING.  Many False Notions on This Important  Subject Exploded.  Many people used to have an impression that to sleep on a soft bed  had a spice of wickedness in it arid  that the harder the mattress the greater the virtue of the sleeper.  This arose in great part from the  fact that feather bods were generally  condemned as unhealthy, and the ignorant: at once seir-ed the idea that  they were unhealthy because soft,  whereas they are unhealthy because  they do not permit of proper ventilation.  More and more we learn that the  foundation of liea/th lies in an abundant supply of fresh air and that the  root of many a disease is in the want  of it. In heal Hi many of us spend n  third of our time actually in bed and  in sickness much more, so it is of thc  gi-eiitest importance that the bed and  everything connected with it should  be thoroughly ventilated.  It goes without saying that the bedroom must itself be airy and thc fresh  air have free hcccsm to it.  From the point of view of health It  is a matter of Indifference whether the  bedstead be of wood or 'of 'ron. but  the most comfortable and at the same  time healthy are those fitted with  chain spring mattresses. These mattresses may be bought separately and.  fitted to any bedstead.  AIDS TO   BEAUTY.  Small white .spots which often appear on the nails are caused from  bruising.

It Is nonsense to think that soap and  water and a complexion brush will  cause a growth of hair on the face.  Superfluous hair is more likely to grow  on a dust laden, oily skin. Soap, hot  water and a complexion brush used  every night are necessary to get the  face'"lean. A good.cream will counteract the drying eD.-ets of the soap.  First Aid Valise.

The mammoth Cunanler Mauritania, the largest ship in the world,  recently made her first trip to sea, a  vast cheering crowd, estimated at half  a million, watching her progress down  the Tyne. The vessel's displacement  exceeds that of the Lusitania by 700  tons, and her proportionately greater  engine power, will, it is confidently  expected at Wallsond, give her half  a knot more speed. As the leviathan  was slowly towed down thc river the  scenes of excitement grew. At every  yard and factory on the banks the  workmen took a rest to see her progress, while yard buzzers, hooters, and  steumers' whistle rent the air with  greeting. In Shields Harbor there was  a perfect pandemonium of noise, for  every vessel possessing any noise-  producing instrument thought fit to  use it.  Crossing the b'ir the tugs cast loose,  nnd the record-breaker steamed majestically out to sea. The Man retail ia  is 790 feet long and 88 "eft in beam,  80 feet longer Than the Great Kastern  nnd 5 feet wider, while the combined  displacement of the Dreadnought and  thc Great Eastern would, scarcely-  equal that of the new ocean greyhound, which is, when nroper'y tun-,  ed up, to ba c-'n-hle or an average-  ocean spend of 2.r> knots.

One  hundred   million   dollars  scarcely cover t.h    i" -   m ������������������'���������'    --  of eastern and central Canada's agricultural products this year, compared  with last. The shortage in Ontario  alone is estimated by President James  MacEvoy of the Provincial Farmers'  Association as equal to $80,000,000. In  the northwest, however, while there  is a short yield per acre of a third  or a fourth in some districts and less  or more in others, with variations in  qualities, superior in some places and  inferior in others, the total area under grain this year is so much larger  than last year as to more than compensate for every possible loss in  yield per acre and depreciation  in qualities, while the net income to the farmer per bushel is expected to be larger. Increased prices  are also looked for in the eastern provinces. Taking the country at large,  therefore, the net result is likely to be,  if anything, a slight increase in the  aggregate sum received by the agricultural interests, with a volume of business for the railway and transportation interests about equal to or not  much less than that of 190G.  In the cattle trade, the beef cattle  moved from the ranges of Saskatchewan and Alberta for export this year  will not exceed 50.000 head, compared  with 74,000 head last year. The shortage is due to the fact that after the  winter of 1004 there were scarcely any  yearlings to be had for putting into  the herd to mature for the trade of  1907.  An Highwayman's Grave.  In a corner on Dorchester street  in the grounds of the Grey Nuns or  Sisters of Charity of Montreal, stands  a tall cross o; red-stained wood. The  popular narrative, says Canada, ia  that it marks the grave of a notorious  highwayman, who robbed and murdered habitants on the lonely road  in the olden time. The legend is not  quite true. But Belisle, the convict  in question, was guilty of housebreak-  irg and of an atrocious double murder under the French regime. He  lived on the Grand Chemin du Roi  (Dorchester street): and on the other  side of the road Lved Jean Favre and  his wife, Marie Anne, both of whom  were reputed to have lots of money  hidden away in their house. One  dark night Belisle b-oke into the  house and fired his pistol at Favre,  but only wounrW him. Then he stabbed him to death with a hunting  knife, which he also plunged into the  breast of Favre's wife when she came  to her husband's aid, finally despatching her-with the blow of a spade. He  was suspected, tried, and convic'td.  He was condemned to torture.: ordinary and extraordinary, and to le finally "broken alive." The sentence  was carried out on the old .Custom  House sen-are. Belisle was drawn and  quartered, nnd left lying on his back  to die, his face to the sun. Then his  body was b'-ried at the cross ro.->ds*  at Guy and. Dorchester, streets, and a  cross erected to mark  the spot.  Mistook Bear For Dog.  William Coons, a Kinmount man,  had an exciting experience one evening recently on his way home from  Bobcaygeon. where he had paddl-.-d in  a canoe. While crossing Little Bob  Lake in the dusk he encountered* a  black bear swimming in the water,  and for a time it looked as if the bear  wns going to corne out the victor in  the encounter. Coons at first thought  when within a short distance of the  bear that the animal was a dog and  struck at it with his paddle. It was  then the discovery wns made that it  wns a bear, and with one stroke of his  paw the canoe was unset and the man  and bear were struggling in the wnter.  The attack had evidently infuriated  the animal, for he fought viciously  and when Mr. Coons at last rcrichel  ENCOUNTERED A SHARK.  Wolffe Makes Fourth Attempt to Swim  , English  Chaine'.  Mr. J. Wolffe undo hi-, i'ouith effort  to swim from England in i'runce last  week. The start was made from the  South Foreland at halt-pust six in  the morning. Wolffe 'tiuon settled  down to his staady, powerful stroke,  and inside of two hours was well  south of the Goodwin Sands and four  miles on his onijiiyi-nrcc'rany 7890.?..  miles on hi.-s journey ucioss. , The  northeast breeze was "holding up the  tide and enabling the swimmer to  make a very direct course, and by  10 30 he was nbout sis miies out. The  Dover mail steamer for ('alais pass-id  at H.40, when the swimmer was judged to be about. Bight miles from  the English hind, west of St. Margaret's Hay. The tcm-'crnture of the  sea was GO, which is low for a swim  oi this kind, but Wolffe does not  know what it is to .'ocl cold in the  water.  The breeze went right round to the  west soon after midday, and that  prevented Wolfle weltering as much  as was anticipated, and as much as  could have been wished, there being  the risk that with tlie westerly wind  backing up the flood tide the swimmer would bo carried too far eastward to effect n landing on either of  the big capes���������Grisnez or Blancnez���������  thus considerably lengthening the  swim. Wolffe-and his party returned  to Dover at 10.30 p. m., the plucky  swimmer having again been defeated  by adverse conditions after a strenuous effort lasting 111-2 hours, in which  he got within two miles of Cape  Blancnez. During all the afternoon  and evening he was fighting hard  against very heavy seas, which were  swamping him again and again.  tn one part of thc swim Wolffe had  a rather terrifying experience. An  enormous fish, which Capt. Birch-  field, the pilot, and others aboard state  to have been a bottle-nosed shark,  suddenly jumped partially out of the  water so close to Wolffe, who was  striking out at the time, that lus hand  -swept down the monster's stomach.  Wolffe spurted away with the inquiry whether there were any sharks  about. Thc unpleasant incident ended with the disappearance of the  shark, which dived below. Wolffe's  battle with the rough seas eventually  exhausted him, and he had again to  give up with his goal in sight. He  states that he will not' again attempt  the task this year.  AN UNWORLDLY CHURCH.  The Only One That Can Dominate the  Future.  In a sermon in Holy Tiinity Church  during the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Anglican Christianity in America the Lord  Bishop of London, gave his idea of  the characteristics which the Church  that shall dominate the future must  possess.  The most evangelistic, the most  catholic the most orthodox Church, he  said, will produce no effect upon the  world if it is not clearly and unmistakably, and bafurc all the world, unworldly itself. Bear with me, then,  when I say, as my last word, that the  greatest danger of the Church on both  sides of the Atlantic is worldlinesa.  In one sense it is impossible for the  Church to mix too freely with the  world. Into the slum of East London,  into the business of Wall street, into  the mining camps at Klondyke, the  Church must go, and no human interest in the world is outside the interest of the Church.  "But, on the other hand, to run a  church simply as a man runs a successful business is to spell ruin and  failure and shame for the most orthodox  Church in the world."  A DOCTOR'S HEROISM.

SCIATICA CURED  Corn'sh Sea Serpent.  The Rev. T. Davies, chaplain of a  Sheffield almshouse, and Mr. E. Dodg-  son, of Jesus College, Oxford, announce that they have seen a sea  serpent twenty feet long at Tintagel,  North Cornwalk���������^  The .; "sea serpent" was located  within 200 yards of the Tintagel  cliffs on the north coast of Cornwall,  or right in the shadow of King Arthur's castle. ..'  Mr. Dodgson writes: "At 11.45 a.m.  I was seated with Rev. T. C. Davies,  M.A., who is now staying at Clifton  house, Tintagel, on the edge of the  cliffs of the cove known as Gulla  Stan, at Tintagel, when he called my  attention to a black object that was  moving'at a distance, of about .200  yards very rapidly along the calm  -surface of the sea towards Tintagel  Head. In about a minute U had  disappeared behind the cliff that  bounds the cove on the west.  "It was a sea serpent, at least  twenty feet long, holding its large  head, with apparently some kind of  a crest or mane upon it, aloft. Unfortunately we had no telescope with  us, still less a kodak, wherewith to  take its likeness. We are told that  no such beast is known to have been  seen here. I have, however, seen a  large yellow and green snake swimming quite close to me in the sea at  Corunna, in the northwest of Spain,  and smaller ones like it in the  Spanish rivers. This fact may be  worth recording as a contribution  to the natural history of North  Cornwall."  Stealing Elephants In Slam.  The stealing of elephants seems to  be proceeding in Sinm on a scale  which the owners of the elephants do  not appear to find at all humorous,  says Country Life The industry in  which the elephants that are stolen  are so largely used is the teak timber trade, and it has been reported by  shore, after having been in the wat>;r I the B'itish consul that the thefts are  about half an hour, it was with a suit   interfering  with   the   profits   of   the  of badly torn clothes and a body with  many scratches made by the bear'n  claws.

Two years ago she suffered most  severely from an attack of sciatica,  and for a number of months was an  invalid confined to her bed. She further states: "It is impo.-sible for me  to de.-jeiibe the pain from which I*  suffered. J endeavored to continue  my profession as a music teacher, but  was forced td give it up. Tlie uoctor  said the troub'e was sciatica, but his  treatment did not help me. I could  scarcely take a step without the most  acute pain shooting through my back  and down the limb. Finally 1 took  to my bed and lay there perfectly  helpless, and could not move without  aid. The pain was never absent.  I consulted another doctor, but  with no better results, and I began to  think I would always be a sufferer.  One day a friend who was in to see  me asked why I did not take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and on her advice  I decided to do so. The result was  beyond my most hopeful expectations.

Boers Are  Replacing Them  In South  African Constabulary.  The plan of the Boer Government  of the Transvaal to get rid of all the  Englishmen in the South African  Constabulary and replace them by  Boers is said to be causing great indignation among the men at home  on leave, who have been warned by  Sir Richard Solomon, the Transvaal  Agent-General, that if they return  they do so at the risk of dismissal.  One of the officers who was just about  to return after completing six  months' leave in England, says that  he has been informed in a letter from  a friend in South Africa that 900 men  would be discharged from the' Constabulary before long owing to the  work of the Het Volk. "I wrote for  my discharge on receiving Sir Richard Solomon's letter," he said, "and 1  shall stay in England. - I was in  Johannesburg once or twice not very  long ago, and I saw hundreds of men  there out of work.       '**  "If you ask me who is to blame for  nil thin, I say the British people, who  permit themselves to be blown about  here and there by every puff of wind."  Trooper F. Hooper, who came home  on April 1 last, having obtained his  discharge after six and a half years'  service, said he had been stationed  latterly 20 miles from Krugersdorp,  on the veldt. "Everybody from this  country in the service of the Transvaal Government," he said, "has suffered more or less from the pin-prick  policy of the Boers. I had enough of  it, and that is why I took my discharge, although I had taken the  trouble to become proficient in- the  Dutch language. They have all got  rifles���������service rifles.

Two little children of Accrington,  England, Ida Partington, aged ten,  and her brother, Jack, nine, have performed the feat of scaling the lofty  tower and spire of Christ Church, 150  feet high.  Mr., Partington, the father, is repairing the steeple, ��������� and time after  time the children���������who have spent all  their lives among the ladders���������implored hm to take them up the ladders with him, right to the pinnacle.  At first he was reluctant, but they  did so well on other ladders, that at  last he consented.  So one fine morning the three set  out for the climb. Hand over hand,  up the ladders fixed outside the spire,  climbed little Ida; after her ;rawled  young Jack; and the father brought  up the rear. The crowd, at first horrified, were delighted at last to see  all three standing safe and sound on  the tiny platform at the top of the  highest ladder.  For    come    time    the   youngsters  stood enjoying their situation.  Then,  at a word from their father.'they care-^  fully and safely descended.  Inside the Earth.  Prof. Milne, the great British seismologist, has demonstrated that at  least part of the weather and changes  in the atmosphere's temperature seems  to come from below instead of directly from the sun. He has been in the  habit of leaving an ingenious photographic arrangement in quarries at  night. The photographic paper when  examined later was found to ba marked from time to time by dark bands,  black spots and what are called singe-  ings. Some of these markings occurred at the time ox earthquakes, but  by no means all. Scientists say that  most minerals become luminous at frequent intervals. The cliffs of Dover  have been seen suddenly- to gleam  and hilltops become visible in the  darkness. The conclusion is that the  disturbing forces which go on even  at the very cantre of the earth are  converted before they reach the surface into heat and light and make  all manner of difference in climate  and weather.  "Canada Leads the World"  It is generally understood that the'  telephone is a-..Canadian invention,  but- it will bo no less of a pleasure  than a surprise to many of our readers to learn that Canada leads the  world   in   telephone   invention. "  The invention of the telephone is  almost universally ci-etlited to Prof.  Alexander Graham Bell at the time  when he was living at Brantford,  Ontario, and that city is now raising  funds with which to. erect a monument to his memory.  By a strange coincidence the Lorimer Automatic Telephone, commonly  called Canadian Machine Telephone,  was also invented in Brantford, by  the-Lorimei* Brothers, who,-like Bell,  are Canadians by birth.  The Bell Telephone Company, which  for years has enjoyed a practical  monopoly of the telephone business  in Canada, and as a result has grown  rich and indifferently arrogant toward  the people, has long maintained- an  old style telephone exchange in  Brantford. Last year the city granted  a franchise to an Independent Company to instal the Lerimer Automatic Telephone System. The Bell  Company immediately changed its  stiff-necked policy and proceeded to  build ' a modern central office. building and put its wires- underground  and installed a new and improved  multiple switchboard. The Independent TelepHone Company . has purchased a fine lot and is erecting'a  modern telephone building.  Brantford now styles itself "The  Telephone City" and Canada is likewise entitled to the credit of "Leading  the World in Telephone Invention."  A strong company, known as Canadian Independent Telephone Co.,  Ltd., with' head offices at Toronto,  has been organized and will manufacture a full line of telephone apparatus in Canada, both automatic and  manual, and' it is confidently expected that our country will soon  produce all ot its own- telephones,  tihus enabling us to keep in Canada  the hundreds of tho.isands of dollars  which otherwise would go to outside  manufacturers. In these time-- of  tight money this . will be welcome  news.  A Pertinent Query  "You are a millionaire," said Mr.  Dustin Stax.

List of Calamities In Recent Years Ii  ,    Long and Terrible.  .  When the   Quebec   bridge disaster  was followed  closely   by   the culami-  ous'railway wreck at the Horseshoe  curve on the C. P   R. near Calcdon  Mountain, a remark commonly heard  on  the street  was:  "I-wonder what  the.third tragedy will be." Many had  for the moment actually forgotten the  i collapse of the store building in Lon-  ,  don, a tragic occurrence ranking as a  , great,disaster; which had shocked the  whole country less than two months,  before.-   This,seems to bear out the.  -following comment from The Toronto  Mail and Empire, in a special article  I on the subject:'  ,' It seems reasonable to assume at  I this date, that none of these terrible  , accidents fall,into the category of un-<  avoidable events. Human callousness  or human carelessness was responsible 'for some links, in the chain of  destruction; and hence we are very  properly warned against the spirit of  the times to sacrifice everything to  speed, a word which is in this connection something more-than a rhyme  for greed.     -      , .

Minard's Liniment Relieves Neuralgia  The Life of Trees  Brazilian cocoanut palms live from  600 to 700 year's, and the Arabs assert  that the date palm frequently reaches  the age of 200 to 300 years, says the  Dundee Advertiser. Wallan's oak,  near Paisley, Scotland, is known to  be over 700 years old, and there are  eight olive trees on the Mount of  Olives near Jerusaleum, which are  known to-have been flourishing in  1099. The yews at Fountain's Abbey,  Yorkshire, were old trees when, in  1132, the abbey was built, and a redwood in Mariposa Grove, .California,  is a manifold centenarian. Baobab  trees of Africa have been computed  to be over five thousand years old,  and the deciduous cypress at Chapul-  tepec is considered to be of still greater age. Humboldt said that the Dracaena Draco at Orotnvn, on Teneriffe,  was one of the oldest inhabitants of  the oarth.  hilation. Other horrors, here or elsewhere, will have crowded the incident aside, to. be displaced in their  turn.  Desjardins Canal Tragedy.  For many "years the horror of the  Desjardins Canal tragedy of 1856 lingered in the public mind, and thi3  calamity still ranks with the most  terrible of Canadian railroad disasters. - Seventy lives were lost by a  train from Toronto to Hamilton plunging through an- open drawbridge.  Eight years later ninety people were  killed at Beloeil, Quebec, where the  bridge had been drawn aside for the  passage of some boats, just at the  moment a train dashed up to the  gap. In 1856, as recalled by The  Montreal Gazette,'tlie boiler of a ferryboat plying between Montreal and  Longueuil exploded,'���������killing thirty-five  persons and injuring many more.  Another heartrending tragedy was  the destruction of the steamboat  Montreal.  In 1893 occurred the Cornwall  bridge disaster, which had some features in common with the Quebec  tragedy, although the loss of life was.  not so great.  An accident for which it would be  more difficult to hold human negligence responsible than in the cases  mentioned was the breaking away of  a large portion of the Citadel rock  at Quebec, some eighteen years ago.  September rains had loosened the  earth about the mass of rock, and  without a moment's warning it broke  away, and rolled down .the .declivity,,  overwhelming the houses in its path,  and crushing to death forty persons.  The Mimico train disaster was much  nearer home, and made an ineffaceable mark on the minds oi the thousands of Toronto people who remembered it.  Montreal School  Horror.  There was also the terrible Queen's  Birthday disaster of an excursion  steamer at London a' few years ago.  The Hochelaga school horror touched  the hearts of thousands grown accustomed to the daily chronicle of battle, murder and sudden death which  it is the province of the newspaper  to report.    .  All these disasters have occurred  in the past half century, and they  form a truly awful record of destruction and suffering. Calamities of  still greater "scope could be. included  Ly going back still further in our history. There were the New'Brunswick  fire of 1825, the Quebec fires of 1845  and 1846, the Montreal fires of 1765,  and 1803, 1852 and 1876; the St. John  fire of thc following year. There was  also the wreck of the Atlantic in 1873,  . when 350 people were lost, the record  in point of number of" fatalities  among* Canadian accidents.  Tells YoujHow to Overcome Rheumatism With Simple  Recipe,  Which  Is  Easily  Mixed.  A well-known "authority on Eheu-  matism gives the readers of,va large  Montreal daily paper the following  valuable, yet simple and harmless  prescription, which any one can easily prepare at home.  Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half  ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;  Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three  ounces.  . Mix byr shaking well in a bottle, .and  take a teaspoonful after each meal  and at bedtime.   .    , ������  ' He states that the ingredients can  be obtained from any good prescription pharmacy, at small cost, and, being a vegetable extraction, are harmless' to. take. ' ,  This pleasant mixture, if taken regularly for a few days, is said to over  come almost any case of rheumatism.  The pain and swelling, if any, diminishes with each dose, until permanent  results are. obtained, and without injuring the stomach. While there are  many so called Rheumatism remedies,  patent medicines, etc., some of which  do give relief, few really give permanent results, and the above will, no  doubt, be greatly appreciated by many  sufferert' here at this time.  Inquiry at the drug stores of this  neighborhood elicits the information  that these drugs are harmless and can  be bought 'separately, or the druggists  here will mix the prescription for our  readers if asked to.

When the  extreme cold of last winter comes up  for discussion they will ask you if  you have heard the old story of the  two easterners who met somewhere  out there during an unseasonable  spell'of cold weather. "Is there any  summer at all out here?" one demanded of the other.'' "I don't know," was  the reply. "I have only been out  here eleven months."  The same tendency to take everything jestingly displayed itself in Edmonton a short time ago. One of the  streets in the centre of the town���������  at the top of that famous hill���������was  being repaved and no temporary repairs had been made to it. Down  came a heavy rain, leaving part of  the street impassable���������a stretch of  humps, lumps and small ponds. On  walking that way next morning the  stranger found printed placards nailed to the telegraph polos containing  such notices as these: "Hunting and  Fishing on these Premises Strictly  Prohibited���������By Order" nnd "Warning  ���������Duck Shooting Not Allowed Here."  In Edmonton the municipal officials  can take a joke, and the placards were  allowed, to remain where they, had  been posted.  Manitoba University.  ' An important" step concerning the  University of Manitoba was recently  taken by the Government when an  order-in-'councn was made creating a  royal commission to inquire into and  make recommendations concerning  that institution. The commissioners  have the powor to take all necessary  steps for the acquirement of information as may in their opinion be desirable.  The Tnnner'������ Art.  It Is Impossible to say when the tan-  nor'B art was originated. Wo know  that leather was early known In Egypt  ns well as In all the ancient nations.  Tho celebrated "Gordlan knot," that  Alexander the Great "untied" with hlj  sword, was made of leather.  Baby's health and happiness depends upon its little stomach and  bowels performing their work regularly. If these are out of order  Baby's Own Tablets will cure the  trouble quicker than 'any other medicine, and the mother has the guarantee of a government analyst that this  medicine is perfectly safe. Mrs.  Frank Neil', Marksville, "Ont., says:  "I have used Baby's Own Tablets for  stomach and bowel troubles, breaking up colds and destroying worms,  and always with the best success."  Sold by all medicine dealers or by  mail at 25 cents a box from the Dr.  Williams' Medic'ne Co., Brockville,  Ont.  John Felstead, a builder, of 312 Wilton Avenue, Toronto, was working on  a temporary scaffold, the plank broke  and he fell through. He received several severe cuts on the leg, a bruised  knee, and a thorough shaking. . Zam-  Buk, the herbal balm, was applied to  the cuts and gave him great relief.  He says:  "Zam-Buk was so effective that although my leg was badly cut, I was  able to go on without a day's break  from work. Z<im-Buk takes the soreness out of a wound at once and then  it commences to heal. It is without  doubt a wonderful balm for skin injuries, and I am glad to make this  virtue known."  Zam-Buk is' a sure and speedy cure  for cuts, bruises, and all skin diseases. At all stores and druggists,  50c. box, or- The Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, 3 boxes for $1.25.  As I stood still looking at thesplen-  'id specimens of manhood, clad in  he homely, serviceable and therefore  0 me, all the more artistic, garb, there  irose in my mind, frilled and furbe-  lowed clothes-pegs I had seen moving  in the streets of Paris. My mind came  to the decided conclusion, though  rapidly arrived at, that the environ-,  ment of homobimana in thc year of  grace 1907, considered so absolutely  essential in these regions, was not  so indispensable as they suppose it,  or even so devoid of danger as ��������� its  devotees ' estimated. I felt sorry for  this deduction, and Temembered somewhat gladly that Charles Wagner had  flung down the book on the "Simple'  Life" amongst them for their better  education.  Grew In Storm and Stress.  Here circumstances are apparently  harder, and we have yet to rend from  a reluctant environment the wherewithal to fill our money bags. But  here the truth was forced upon me  once again. A truth which the genius of our race has owned as its  special prize during the centuries that  are gone. Blundering along, .these  humble folk have been led true every  time. For not under palm trees and  ���������Kinder sunny skies, amidst the islands  of the South Pacific, where the breadfruit-requires nothing but an open  mouth to fall into, are Viking bred  and races renewed. Out of the north  and its hardships come many good  things unsought for._ These barren  rocks, these stormy seas, these icebound hills, arc evolving for the Empire a race the influence of whose  mental balance and physical development, it seems to me, our national  existence will one day stand in much  sorer need of than of that kind of  "much learning" which sometimes  makes races mad.  He  Was   Cunning  and  a' Hard   Case,  Too, Wa3 This Fish.  We were camping in northern Wisconsin, and one evening after our supper of black bass and hacon we lay  under the pine trees smoking and telling flsh stories in which It was always"  the "bigger bass" thnt got away. The  guide listened with the gravity of a  man who knew all about fish stories,  and finally he knocked the ashes from  his pipe and told us a story.  "Ouce long ago," he said, "there was  a terrible big trout up in Smith's  pool. Every fellow who fished in the  pool had hooked him oue time or another, but be ulways got away, bit off  the snood or something.  "I tried to catch him myself a dozen  times.- One day I was sitting by the  pool when, splash, -a youug' robiu  nuttercd out of the nest on a limb  above-the pool Into the water below.  In a minute there was a rush, a gleam  of yellow, and the old trout had  thrown himself clear out of the water  and had 'swallowed the young robin  whole.  "What did I do? Well, I climbed  that tree iu short order, got another  one of those youug robins, baited my  hook with it and threw it in just as  lightly as I could. In a minute there  was another rush, another gleam of  yellow, and again the old trout jumped clear out of the water as he swallowed the robin, and in a minute more  I had him hooked.  "It was lucky I wasn't fishing with  any of this newfangled rigging these  boys use and that'I wasn't bothered  with a reel to look after, -or I would  have lost him sure. As it was It took  me a devil of a time to get him out.  "Good to eat? Great Scott! We  didn't try* to cat him. lie was so full  of hooks we sold him for oid iron,"  you know."  That ended our fish stories for that  night.  Why She Worried'  A lady carrying a little dog in her  arms was riding in a 'bus that went  along Park Lane. All the-way up.she  worried the conductor to know whether they hud come to No. , mentioning a house nearly at the lop.  When they reached the number the  conductor stopped, the 'bus thinking  the lady wished to alight there. Instead of doing this, however, she went  to tho door of the 'bus, and, holding  up the clog, said:  "Look, Fido; that's where ' your  mother was born!"���������N. P.

Russian   Declares  His  Country Stole  Alaska by Forged Documents.  Leo Nabokoff, a friend of Count Leo  Tolstoi, who is armed with a mission  from his chief to. the wandering Douk-  hobors, is in Winnipeg, and has opened an office there.   Mr. Nabokoff has  ���������-unearthed some ancient Russian documents in Alaska which materially  affect Canada's position on the Alaska boundary  question,  and  showing  how Russia forged evidences of early  occupation of the Pacific coast.   Mr.  Nabokoff  formerly  resided   at  Sitka,  Alaska, where he was at the time of  the   transfer _of   that territory   from  Russia to the United States.     Later  Mr. Nabokoff was sent by his Government to Sitka to put in order the  archives kept by the Russian authorities,  which  they  had  not taken the  trouble to remove.   In doing this work  he  found  there  some  very  interesting documents.    These were kept in  old Russian, which is not generally  understood by  those who know that  -language, but which he had studied.  Some transactions, which he has recently forwarded to the Governor-General of Canada, have a most important bearing on the Canadian boundary question, and if they had come to  light at the time of the conference in  London would have affected decisions  as.  to the marking  of the  Canadian  frontier most materially. The purport  of  the   records  is that  Russia- stole  the whole of the Pacific coast, and secretly buried tablets, to be dug up in  proof of its claims to prior discovery.  Stones and Wooden Tubes Filled With  Lead First Used.  There appear to be two Ideas which  have led up to the invention of the  modern anchor���������first, that of attaching the vessel by means of a rope  or chaiu to a weight sufficiently heavy  to keep the vessel from moving when  the weight has sunk to the bottom of  the sea, and, second, that of using a  hook instead of or in addition to the  weight, so as to catch in the bottom.  The English word anchor is practically the same as the Latin ancora and  the Greek angkura, meaning "that  which, has an angle," from the root  ank, bent  The earliest anchors made on the  hook principle probably only had one  fluke instead of two. In the "Sussex  Archaeil, Coll." there is an illustration  of what has been surmised to be an  anchor made out of the natural forked  branch of a tree. It was found with  an ancient British canoe at Burpham,  Sussex. There is in the British museum an interesting leaden anchor with  two flukes bearing a Greek inscription. Its date is about 50 B. C, and it 1  was found off the coast of Cyrene.  The Invention of the anchor with  two flukes is attributed by Pausanlus  to Midas, hy Pliny to Eupalainas and  by Strabo to Anacbarsis. Diodorus  Siculus states that the first anchors  were wooden tubes filled with lead,  while another classical writer says  that before the introduction of metal  anchors lumps of stone -with a hole  through the middle for the attachment of the cable were used.  The form of the anchors used by  the Greeks and Romans is well known  from representations on Trajan's column and In the catacombs at Rome  as an early Christian symbol. This  form does not seem to have changed  materially for quite a thousand years,  as is shown by the Baycux tapestry.

Hard Times 'and Waj?es.
Tlie busine?"* depression is hurrying two opp"sing theories towaid
a conflict which is pretty certain to
be sharp and may prove, very serious. F.ver since, the first lalk of
hard times l^gan'lo be. heard, the
view Ikis bei-ii cornmonlj' expressed
in financial circles that some
slackening of production, involving especially a. shrinkage in the
cost, of labor, would not only.be
necessary but desirable. It has
been taken for granted limb a decline of billions in the price of se-
curilics since (lift h��a;iniiinsr of Ihf*
year would b��. followed in due.
t'me by a e< rrcsp'mding decline
in wages, and linanciers have
"fiid that this would be a. neces-
siirv and-wliolcsomo economy, enabling our overtaxed ' capital lo
catch up again with, the demands
upon it.
Rut this theory is nob accepted
by labor, ft takes precisely the
opposite, view., ft holds that the
wav to check the depression is to
keep wages up and so maintain the
purchasing power of the people.
President Ciompets. of the American Federation of labor has repeatedly urged the unions not to
accept reductions in wages under
any circumstances. Tn the annual convention of the Federation
at Norfolk be vehemently proclaimed this principle. " A'ot in
the history of all our country." he
said, ''has there been what lias
been termed a shrinkage" of values
so great as in the few months past.
The shrinkage occurred, not. upon
actual, tangible values, but upon
inflated or watered slocks, which
in the financial vernacular are
termed ' values.' fn former periods
when shrinkage or inflated values
transpired, its influences upon 111���
duslry was almost immediately to
-affect* the real values' of production, which in. turn with forced
upon the toilers in the form of reduction of w'ages, bringing in their
wake, an industrial crisis and panic.
" It is due to the determination
and clean cut policy of labor-of our
country that our princes of liiian'c",'
and ������I'tieie Tom's Cabin'"'are still i (Icspitt* their machinations, could j
able to do business. j not influence employers of labor to;
  j hazard an attempt at wage  reduc-.

Thus the issue is sharply de-
lined. ''* W'age.i are an ( xpeiise.''
.-ays one theory, ''and in time of
dcpre.--.-ion expenses must be. cut
down. ** Workmen are consumers," says another, "and the. way
to make business active-is to give
conalimers the meal'is to buy goods.''
