THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA.  Little Known of the Real Origin of  the Instrument.  ITS   USE   BY   THE   CHINESE.  This Wonderful People Knew of the  Magnetic Needlo Long Before the  Christian Era���������The Claims of Gioia,  the Pilot, and the Credit Due Him.  Much interest must forever nliaeb to  tlie discovery of Unit valuable instru  nient tlie mariner's compass, unci yet  then- are few subjects coiii'crnliijj  whicli less ia known: I-'or a period the  honor of the in vein Ion was ascribed to  (.iioia. a pilot, horn at I'asitano, a  small village situated near Anialti,  about the end of the ihlrieenitt ecu  tury. Ills claims, however, have been  disputed.  Much learning and labor have been  bestowed'upon the subject of the discovery. It tins been maintained by one  class I hat even the Phoenicians were  the inventors, by another that the  Creeks and Itoinans had a knowledge  of ll. Such not Ions, however, have  been completely refuted.  One passage, nevertheless, of a remarkable character occurs In the works  of Cardinal de Vilty, bishop of Hole-  nulls, in Syria, lie went to I'lilestiiie  during the fourth crusade, about ltie  year I'JOt. rie returned afterward to  Europe, and siibseiiueiiily back to the  Holy Land, where he wrote his work  entitled "Ulstoriu Orieutalls," as nearly as can lie determined, between the  years 1215 and 1220. In chapter 01  of that work he has this singular pas-  eage:  "The iron needle, after contact with  the loadstone, constantly turns to the  north star, which, at the axis of the  firmament, remains Immovable while  the others revolve, and hence it is essentially necessary lo those uavigat-  ing on the ocean."  These words are as explicit as they  nre extraordinary. The/ state a fact  and announce a.use. The thing, therefore, whicli essentially constitutes the  compass must have beeii known long  before ihe birtb of Gioia. In addition7  to-this fact, there is another eipially  fatal to his claim-as tbe original discoverer.  It is now set tied beyond a doubt  that.the Chinese were acipi.-iiuted with  the compass long before the Europeans. It is certain that there are allusions to the magnetic needle in tlie  traditionary .-period of'Chinese history,  about 2.000 years before Christ, and a  still more credible account of it Is  found in the reign of Chiiigwnngof the  Chow dynasty, beforo Christ II l-l.  All this, however, may be granted  without in the least impairing the just  claims of Gioia lo tlie gratitude of mankind. The irulb appears to lie that  the position of Gioia in relation to the  compass was precisely I hat of Watt in  relation to the steam engine-the element existed; be augmented its utility.  The compass used by the mariners  In the sMediterrnuean during tin-  twelfth and thirteenth centuries was  a very uncertain and unsatisfactory  apparatus. It consisted only of a magnetic needle floating in a vase or basin  by means of two straws on a bit; of  cork supporting it on tbe surface of  the water.  The compass used by the Arabians  In the thirleenili century was an in  strumeut of i>xa.'tly the same description.- Now. the inconvenience and in  efficiency of such au apparatus are ob  vlous. The agitation of the ocean and  the tossing of the vessel might render  it useless lu n moment.  But Gioia placed the magnetized  needle on a pivot, which permits It In  turn to all sides with "facility. Afterward it was attached to a card divided  Jnio thirty-two points, called rose de  vents, and then the box containing il  was suspended in such a manner that.  however the vessel might be tossed,  Jt would always remain horizontal.���������  Electrical Engineer.  SEWING NEEDLES.  How They Are Fashioned  From C0II9  of Fine Steel Wire,  We are so accustomed to seeing the  little steel sewing needle in everyday  use that we accept its presence us a  mutter of course, quite as if it grow  on'a tree like un tipple.  It is true that needles have always  been used, but not always in their  present form, In times when skins  of animals were worn for clothing  the needle was made of fishbone, bone  or ivory, without* an eye and of goodly size and strength, in order to  pierce the skins easily.  Since the hitter part of the fourteenth century steel needles have  been made. Various are the kinds  and sizes which are now required for  everyday use by a world of people  for sewing by hand, by machine, for  packing, upholstery and leather work,  wonderful needles for surgical purposes and many others.  The material used in the manufacture of the needle consists of fine  steel wit-j, which is supplied in coils.  These coils,, are cut with powerful  shears into lengths, each sut'icient  for two needles.'  Several thousand of these lengths  are placed .together in a bundle, heated <* to' red heat and then quickly  straiglhened  by-fpressure and  rolling.  These straigthened lengths are then  pointed at both ends on a revolving  grindstone. A grinder will point ns  many us 100,(Mi needles in a day,  while������������������ machinery ��������� .invented for the  same purpose will point three times  as many as a skilled workman.  Next eonie.-* the eyeing of thc needles. You will. remember that each  length of wire referred to is sullicient  for two" needles. At the centre of  each length, therefore, is stamped the  grooved and rounded impression of  two needle heads, end to end, and  then perforated by steel punches.  - Through the double eyeholes thus  formed (of say 100 needles at 11 time)  is threaded fine wire, giving an appearance of a two edged comb. The  needles are held rigid and then broken apart with comparative ease between the eyeholes.  The needles arc next hardened and  'tempered by being subjected to red  heat, plunged inn an oil bath, reheated again and gradually cooled.  After this they must be scoured anil  polished by : friction combined with  soft soap," oil and ��������� emery powder.  Washing, drying and more polishing  follow. .In fact, there seems to be m'  end to the polishing and finishing  processes. But when the work is finally completed the needles are as near  perfection-as-modern' machinery and  human skill can make them.  WILD PEOPLE OF CEYLON.  SIMON BOLIVAR.  The   Veddas   Live   a   Communal   Lif������  In  Caves.  Writing of tho curious customs observed by the Veddas, or wild people  of Ceylon, u traveler says: "All the  men came to meet us and led the  way to the caves, which were completely hidden by a thicket. On a  rocky platform in front of the cava  the inon all surround us, shouting to  their women to come and see their  'white sister-in-liiw' or 'cousin.' Veddas have always-been renowned for  their, truthfulness, and this reputation we arc able to indorse. Each  community has its own hunting  ground, and adheres strictly to itu  own game rights. Upon each hunting ground there are a number of  cuves and rock shelters, and the families of the community move from one  to another throughout .the year, as  presence of game, honey, yams, or  fish demands. The big caves are communal property, the smaller caves  usually belonging to .single families;  but even in the communal caves each  family has its particular place, in  which its members sleep, cook, eat,  and keep all their belongings.  "Each family respects the privacy  of iis neighbors' few feet of the cave  lloor as "faithfully as if partition  walls existed; only the children  roam all over the cave at will. Food,  however, seemed to be public property, for one woman would cook food  and share it with every one present  in the cave. This may probably he  explained as follows: The communal  caves are situated in common hunting ground; therefore, all the game,  yams, iguanas, or honey brought in  from the commot. land is the property of the community, not of the  man  who  procures it.  "I have stated that the smaller  caves are usually private property.  It would probably be more correct to  say that Veddas possess private hunting grounds on which very frequently  there are small caves, such caves being then the property of the owner of  the land. When a man is living in j  his own euvc in the midst of his own |  hunting ground the produce of the |  chase would naturally be his own, .  though shared with any one living! irom the rest of  with' him.

Bolivar had been writing his name  lurue in South American history for a  long timo before that date, however,  earning (or himself the title of the  "Washington of South America." Simon Bolivar was born in Caracas,  Venezuela, in 17S3 of a noble and  wealthy family. He studied law m  Spain, traveled much in Europe, married and returned to his native country. In 1809 he visited the United  Slates on his return frorii another  journey to Europe. It was at this  time that he became an enthusiastic  admirer of republics and made up his  mind to free Venezuela from Spanish  despotism. From that time on war  was his portion.  In I813 ho entered Caracas as conqueror, was hailed as thc liberator of  his country bv the people and made  absolute dictator in civil and military  affairs. He met with reverses, however, at the hands of the Spaniards,  and it was during a period of defeat  on the continent that he convoked a  congress in Haiti, instituted a government and abolished slavery there.  That was in 181G. Thereafter he was  successful against the Spaniards m  South America, and in 1819 at Angostura, Venezuela, he was chosen president with the. power of dictator. When  New Granada united with Venezuela  he was made the first President. By  182*2 the new republic was completely  cleared of royalist troops.  Bolivar wa,'1 summoned the same  venr to help the Peruvians and in  182-1 was named dictator of Peru. By  IS25 the Spaniards were driven out  of I'eru also, and Bolivar, culling a  congress at Lima, formally resigned  the dictatorships. Soon after that the  southern part of Peru was erected into 11 separate state and named Bolivia,  and he could have been dictator for  life. However, troubles in Colombia  kept him busv.

A woman in Silesia has been hauled into court by her husband because  she persisted in growing thin in opposition to his wishes. In his petition  for. a divorce the Sile'sian* gentleman  declared that the lady obtained her  husband under false pretences, for  when he married her she was full sized and of ample and generous proportions and he had every reason to  believe that she would remain so.  When slimness became the fashion,  however, she began fading away in  order to wear the latest empire gown.  She rode horseback three hours eacii  morning, played tennis two hours, ami  then took long fat-reducing walks,  while she ate like a bird.  How successful was this strenuous-  pursuit of slenderness may be judged,  lor in three months' time she had lost  SI pounds and a portly husband. Foi  the hard-hearted Silesian judge granted the captious husband's plea for a  divorce and delivered a fiery attack  upon the prevailing styles in feminine architecture. He laid down the  principle that no lady has a right to  fade away without her husband's consent, and he completely disallowed  defendant's plea that half a wife is  better than none. The wife is left free-  to continue her disappearing process.  It is hoped that her frugal habits ol  living Will prove useful to her, now  that she is deprived of a husband. '*".  Long Canals.  The Grand Canal of China is the  longest entirely artificial waterway in  the world, extending as it does from  Hangchau to Pekin, a distance of almost 700 miles. The part between  the Yellow River and the Yangtze is  said to have been constructed 500  years before Christ. The remaininp  portions were built separately at latei  dates, and Kublai-Khan, whose rule  began in 1280, united them and made  the continuous canal, which is still  used. Much longer continuous waterways, partially natural and for the  remainder of their extent artificial,  exist elsewhere. Of these the longest reaches from the Chinese frontier  to St. Petersburg. It measure 4,-172  miles. Another, running from Astrakhan to St. Petersburg, is 1,43*1 miles.  Both these were projected and commenced  bv  Peter  the Great.  Eiffel  Tower That  Failed.

Prowling, according to a magazine  writer, is not exactly strolling, for  -trolling practically assumes an absolute and utter lack oi purpose. On the  other hand, prowling differs from any-  nnplies sightseeing; for  cious purpose,  there is nothing brisk or businesslike  or suggestive of ciuty about it.  'lo prowl, in fact, is "to go forth into  the highways and byways of any interesting place, either in the city or  in the country, in a perfectly irresponsible fashion, with one's mind in  a state of genial receptivity, but not  of acute acquisitiveness; with a readiness to enjoy every possible impression of life in all its phases; not exactly an alertness, but with a bland  ancl friendly openmindedness that  never loses sight of anything.  The person who is capable of prowling, in this special ancl technical  sense of the word, must have a touch  oi the Bohemian in him. He must  be able to take things as they come,  lo extract the last drop of humor  from every possible occurrence, to  have  no large ideas of his own  im-  The Difference.

His  Nose   For  News.  A cub reporter on a big daily paper  was sent out by the city editor to get  a story on the marriage of a young  society* girl'and d man well known  in the city.  The "cub" was gone about an hour  and then returned and went aimlessly over to his desk, by whicli he sat  down. Shortly afterward the city editor noticed his presence and his evident idleness.  "Here, kid!" shouted the superior.  "Why aren't you at work on that  wedding?"  "Nothin* doing," replied the boy.  "Nothing doing! What do you  mean? Didn't the wedding take  place?"  "Nope. The bridegroom never showed up, so there ain't nothin' to write."  The  Nebulae.  The discovery'of thc gaseous nature  of the nebulae came about largely  through the use of the spectroscope  and spectrum analysis. Fraunhofer  proved that the spectrum of un ignited gaseous body is "rtbncontinuoufl,  with interrupting lines," and J. W.  Draper demonstrated that the spectrum of an ignited solid is always  continuous, with no interrupting  linos. In this way it was proved that  many of the nebulae are gaseous, illustrating the process of development  actually going on.  out the construction had to be paid  $6,000 and given 'the materials for  pulling it down.

Don't  neglect a cut, a patch of eczema, or an open sore  of any kind. The air is full of poison germs,  waiting to start up their evil results in neglected  sores,_ wounds, etc. In Zam-Buk is safety.

The affair  took place recently in the village of  Voleckhi, in the Kussian Government  of Volhynia. The victim had incurred j  the hatred of the other women in the j  village by her flirtations with'the men  of the neighborhood, both married-  and single, and feelings reached a  climax when it became known that  on her account one of the young men  of the village had broken his promise  to marry another girl. On comihg out  of the church the other day the women, both old and young, threw themselves upon the flirt, and in spite of  her cries for mercy tore all her clothes  off. They then dragged her through  the village by the hair of her head, .  touting and stoning her mercilessly.  At first the men laughed, but when  they saw how savagely the girl was  being maltreated they attempted to ~  rescue her. The infuriated women,  however, drove them off and then  dragged their unhappy victim, who  was by now a mass of wounds, to a  large tree just outside the village,  where they hanged her to one of the  branches and then lighted a fire of  brushwood under her. When the police-arrived on the scene they found  the victim of the women's furj������ lying  dead under the tree, blackened to a  cinder.  Disfiguring Tortur-  How to Avoid Taking Cold.  If a woman is prone to catch cold  easily (and the same holds good for  babies, children and any one else), it  is necessary to sleep in a cool room.  Never get overheated by wearing  clothing that is too warm, because  therein lies much of thc trouble. By  getting overheated, perspiring freely,  then getting in a draft, the result is  more than apt to be a cold, whereas  that same draft might not have hurt  vou if you had not been in a perspiration. Then, too, the judicious use of  cold water ,may help prevent catching cold. After a warm bath in the  daytime sponge off with cold water,  especially tho throat, tho chest, back,  ankles and feet. This will certainly  help lo prevent catching cold. This  would not be necessary at night if  taking the warm bath .'.mined lately  before getting in bed.  Little Breaks.

A blemished skin, irritating sores  pimples, eczema, salt rheum and other  skin disorders are all signals of distress, telling that your blood is impure  or weak. You cannot cure eczema and j  other skin troubles with ointments and  outward applications. These things  may give tefnporary relief, but cannot  cure, because the trouble-is rooted iri  the blood and can only be removed by  purifying and enriching the blood. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills speedily cure  skin troubles because they enrich, purify and build up the impoverished  blood that caused the trouble. As they  .feed and cleanse the blood- the skin  grows fair, the bloom of health returns and new strength is found. No  other medicine has ever had such won-  derful results in curing all diseases  due to bad blood. Miss Elizabeth Gil-  lis, Kensington, P.E.I., says:���������"Words  can hardly express how grateful I feel  for what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have  done for me. For seven years before  I began their use I was troubled with  salt rheum. My hands and arms  were nearly always a mass of torturing cracks and sores. I tried several  doctors ancl spent a great deal of money without getting any benefit. Indeed my hands seemed to be getting  worse all-the time. Finally my brother persuaded me to give Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills a trial and I am happy to  say they have completely cured me. I  used in all seven boxes, and I would  not he without them in a case of this  kind if they cost five dollars a box instead of fifty cents. I hope my experience will be of benefit to some  other sufferer from skin trouble."  These pills are sold by all medicine  dealers or will be sent by mail at 50  cents a box or six boxes for $2.50 by  The Dr. Williams' Medicino Co.,  Brockville, Ont.

There   are  many arguments against the bureau-'  cratic  system  in  ordinary  affairs- ol  Government, but  unquestionably the ���������  time had   arrived   when   it  was   the'  only solution in  this  province.    Not!  only in criminal matters was this so, |  but  in   the   administration    of   the  health regulations and of the license!  law  there   has   been  much  difficulty I  owing to wrangling between the local,'  officials and those of the Government.'

" Before the present  laws -were put in force, the advent of  a circus, especially of the smaller  variety, meant the arrival of a troupe  of btfrglars, confidence men and pick-.'  pockets, in addition to more violent  types of criminals. It was Rogers  who suggested the' statute which took  the regulation of circuses in a measure from the municipalities and substituted a provincial license and  provincial inspection. He was also  the man who put it into execution  so effectively that the business has  been cleaned up in Canada, and most  of the,northern States have adopted  similar legislation.

There have been one or two unlucky episodes in the career of Earl  Grey,Who got lost in a Canadian forest recently. A short time ago, when  he was about to retire one night, an  incandescent globe, near which he  was standing, exploded, and fragments of glass penetrated his right  eye. Fortunately, a successful operation savedv the 'sight. A Parliamen-'  tary experience of 1878, too, when he  put up for Parliament as a Liberal,  was a rather unfortunate affair. His  opponent was Mr. Ridley, and they  both polled the same number "of  /-votes.. The returning officer declined  to give a casting vote, with the strange  result that both presented themselves  at the table of the House of Commons to take thc oath. Subsequently, however, a scrutiny was made,  ancl some of the ballot-papers being  found to be unmarked, Mr. Ridley  was declared to be the legal holder i  of the seat.
