There are times when he escapes a  row with conductor or passenger, but  they occur only at loug Intervals. Five  blocks before he reaches his street lie  begins to crowd out ou the platform.  Sometimes he is elbowed In return  iiud asked If thero are bristles ou his  back, and sometimes people simply  swear nl him under their breath.

This distribution,  which formerly took place in thc chapel at Whitehall, is now made at  Westminster Abbey.

Royal   Inventors.  The inventive talents of the German royal family have been much in  evidence of late. A few months ago  the Emperor's brother, Prince Henry,  obtained legal protection for a device  for cleaning the shield-window fitted  to the front of motor-cars. Then  came the announcement that His  Majesty himself had invented a brake  particularly applicable to automobiles.  Now, in his turn, the Crown Prince  has actually taken out a patent for  a new kind of stud for shirt-cuffs.  As far as can be judged from the  description given in the specification, the device is a combination of  the link principle with that of a two-  part stud, and unites security of the  former to ease of adjustment of the  latter/   ;  The princely inventor is at present  busily occupied with public affairs.  Having completed his studies in the  Ministry of the Interior, he is now  to pass to the Navy Oflice.  KIMG JAMIE'S BLAST.  What  the  Learned   Monarch   Had  to  Say Against the Weed.  Within two centuries after the discovery of tobacco, tlie Indian and  America in 14C-2, tobacco had conquered ��������� the world, liut its part of  progress has been beset by well-  meaning zealots at every stage.  Perhaps none of its opponents has  been more bitterly antagonistic than  those of the fifteenth century' when  it wns struggling for a foothold in  the Old World. The famous "Coun-  terblaste to Tobacco" of King James  was only an episode in a (crusade  against the habit that he carried on  persistently during his lifetime. Besides his "Counterblasfe" here are a  few apothegms which history accredits to James:  "Tobacco is the lively image and  pattern of hell, for it has by illusion  in it all the parts and vices of the  world, whereby, hell may be gained,  to wit: "' * ���������  "First, it is a smoke; so are the  vanities of this world.  "Second, il delights them who take  it; so do the pleasures of the world  delis-ht the men of the world.  Thirdly, it inakoth men' drunken  and light in the head; so do the vanities of the world���������men arn "drunken  therewith.  Fourthly, he that takcth tobacco  saitli ho cannot leave it, it doth bewitch him. Even so the pleasures of  tho world make men loath to leave  them; and further, besides all this,  it is like hell in the very substance  of it, for it is a stinking, loathsome  thing, and so is hell."  It is amusing to know Hint in tho  latter years of his life King James  himself siiccumb?d to the allurements  of tobacco, and. though ho pighead-  edly continued to denounce it, smoked habitually in secret.  Their crusade against tobacco has  been continued ever since. Unconsciously, and with the very best of  intentions, this army of zealots has  disseminated a great mass of misinformation which had no basis of fact  and which was conceived in the fertile and imaginative brains of a trio  of Park Row space writers. Take,  for instance, the sacred fiction that  the dark colored oil which lodges in  the bowls of pipes and stains the  fingers of cigarette smokers is the  deadly poison nicotine. Chemical  scientists know, of course, that this  substance is not nicotine, but simply  tar, tobacco tar, distilled from the  tobacco just ns coal tar is distilled  from coal and pine tar from pine  wood.  The Climax . ���������"  He was tolling a thrilling story put'  of his wallet of a thousand and one  hairbreadth escapes over in Santiago,  doneherknow, and iris pretty .listener  was leaning' anxiously towards him,  hanging on his every utterance:  "The wolves were, upon us," ho said,  "bellowing alid roaring, ns T have' so  often heard them. Wo fled for our  lives, T don't deny it; but every second we know the ravenous pack was  gaining on us.

Here is a pleasant tale of matrimonial methods. The wife was negotiating with the husband for an Easter  holiday that would cost something.  "Jane," he said, impressively,  "I'd like for you to have it. I'd be  glad to let you go."  The wife looked her doubts as to  whether this was quite the right tone  for an affectionate man to take.  "Yes, I'd be glad," he said, with  conviction. "But the fact is I can't  do it. I have to take up a note for  four thousand pounds next week  and I can't spare a penny."  The wife looked him up and down.  "Very well, Josiah," she said;  "very well. If you ��������� think the man  who holds your note can make things  hotter for you than I can���������very well,  Josiah."  She had her Easter holiday, and  enjoyed it very much too.  Maids of Honor and Their Work.  In England the maids of honor are  chosen by. the Queen herself from  among the daughters of peers, who,  if not themselves connected with the  royal household, are personal friends  of Her Majo.*������ty. A letter is always  sent to the parents of the young lady  requesting that, as a personal favor  to tlie Queen, she may be permitted  to attend at court. As the position  is undcnii.ble, and the salary is about  $ 1,500 a year, /lie request is invars  ii-.bly accepted, and then the newly-  chosen maid receives from the Lord  Chamberlain the command for her  first "wait."  The first thing brought to the maid  of honor is her badge, which is a  miniature picture of the Queen, set  in brilliants, and suspended to a ribbon. Just before the dinner hour,  the maid of honor in. waiting has to  stand in the corridor outside the  Queen's priv.\te apartments. She carries a bouquet which, on entering the  dining-room, she lays at the right  hand of thc Queen's plate.  Tlie maid of honor sits at dinner  next to the gentleman on tlie Queen's  right. This rule is relaxed when  royal guests are present. After dinner, unless otherwise commanded, the  maid of honor retires to her own  room, when, however, she is frequently fetched to read, sing, play the  piano, or take a hand at cards.

Sir Edward Poynter, president of  the Royal Academy, kept the 73rd anniversary of his birthday a few days  ago. He succeeded Sir John Millais  as president in 18������G. The foundation  of Sir Edward's reputation was made  by his picture, "Israel in Egypt,"  whereby hangs a story. He was long  ago a member of a sketch club, and  one evening thc subject set for illustration was "Work." The future  P.R.A. hit upon the idea of drawing  a crowd of dusky Eastern slaves  dragging a colossal statue, and the  Hketch met with such praise that he  resolved to make a big picture of it,  and "Israel in Egypt" came into being. It found, however, one implacable critic, an engineer, who sought  out the artist and proved to him conclusively that the great weight indicated could not possibly be drawn by  the number of slaves shown. Poynter  took tho criticisms in good part, and  added more slaves, at which the cn-  V/hat Telepahy Is.

The effect was magical, and the man  became subdued.  A disheveled, crimson-faced woman  looked   with   haggard   stare, into   vacancy and then throw herself on the  floor, where she screamed and groaned-and laughed, agony andjoy alternating.   Another woman, on"her knees  in  an  obscure  corner, gave,vent to  sounds resembling the cry of a lamb.  A  woman  rose in "the  hall  to say  that for three years she had suffered  from cancer and had been in continual pain, but she had that day "received  the  blood", and ''been  healed  and was now whole.   This announcement was received with cries of praise  and* hysterical laughter.  Several women converts advanced  lo the table making pitiable manifestations of emotion and bursting into  laughter, while one rolled over on the  floor shrieking wildly. As if by contagion others began to utter most uncanny noises. Mr. Wigglesworth had  a screen drawn across the room to  hide  the suppliants..  The' scene continued for three  hours, relieved occasionally by hymns  and the sobering advice of one leader,  who prayed that brethren should not  overstep the mark.  How It Might Be Taken Up by Farmers Successfully.  In my mind, says a breeder, tbe best  horse breding proposition for the farmer .is this: Let a dozen or a score of  farmers .organize and  by a  majority  vote decide  which  one of  the draft  breeds they prefer, then each put in  sufficient, money to pay a'thoroughly  competent' and  reliable   man  to purchase a drst clnss stallion (domestic, if  posible- ' o'f  this   breed.    Compel, tbe  member who takes care of him to take  two'suares, to insure the best of care.  1 If possible, get the local veterinarian  financially Interested and let all points  be decided absolutely by him, the care-  raiser aud president as a committee.  Then let every man sell  what horses  he possesses and, if needs be, borrow  the  money and purchase a  team  of  pure bred mares of this breed.   They  will do all the farm work.and yearly  raise a pair of colts .which at three  rears  old  c.-Tn  be  put  to   work  and  iiu*n their keep, and at four the best  will bring top prices In our city inar-  Kcts or may be sold for breeding purposes,   while all seconds  will  find  a |  ready market nearer home.  Let terms of service be reasonable,  but not too low, and charge mom hers  and nonmembers alike. Before many  years such a community would find its  market nt home, Buyers would come  to them, and then thpy could enjoy that  privilege which rarely comes to the  farmer--viz, putting their own price  on their oAvn goods.  the Making Df London.

A remarkable story, of the conviction-of a white .man by a jury of  West African negroes is revealed by  the action of the Home Secretary recently in ordering the release- from  Parkhurst Prison of Mr. Vivian William ', Denton, of Gravesend, chief engineer and dredge master to a gold  mining company onthe West African  coast.  The white men's camp was raided  and $200, a revolver, and a quantity  of goods were stolen. Suspicion fell  on William Johnson, a negro, who  had absconded. He was tracked down,  and confessed to the robbery, but escaped from his captors by swimming  a" river and concealing himself in the  bush.  He was captured and taken to Ax-  im, and charged with the theft. The  Aboriginal Society provided him with  legal assistance, and he was let off  with one day's imprisonment,  Mr. Denton, who had been a witness in the- prosecution of Johnson,  for whose capture he had offered a reward of $25, was now charged with an  alleged brutal assault on Johnson. He  was tried by a judge and jury of several negroes, and was found guilty  and sentenced to three years' imprisonment. - An eye-witness on whom  Mr. Denton relied died  could give evidence.  'Mr. Denton was sent to Egnland to  serve his sentence, and arrived early  in January.

According  to Professor  Bench,  the  combined knowledge of feeding the  dairy cow may be boiled .'down to a  fixed set of rules, as follows;  The more fond the cow can be ib-  duced to eat the more milk she will  produce. Cows do not usually consume more food ilian they can properly digest. The nuion. therefore, should  be made as palatable as possible in  order to induce the cow to eat larger  quantities.  The larger the amount of protein In  the ration the larger the milk flow.  Protein in the ration Is essential to~the  production-of milk.  The less energy required to .digest  the ration the larger the milk flow., '  The richer the ration the richer"the  manure. The dairy farmer must look  here for a large portion of his profit.  No two cows can be fed alike. Each  must be studied separately. Increase  the protein in the ration and watch  the milk flow.  centuries there is no end  In 1808 a house" in Tokenhouse  Yard, in the centre of the City of  London, was producing a rent of $1,-  ,500 per annum; in 1893 the house was  ���������pulled down and the land alone was  let" at a ground rent of $6,250 per  annum.  Between 1860 and 1900 the price of  freehold land near the Bank of England rose from $75 per square foot  to $250 per square foot, and al this  remarkable price several transactions  took place.  This incremant of value is a phenomenon familiar to most. There are  few who cannot speak of some property which has doubled in value  within his own experience: nor is it  necessary to go further back than the  beginning of many an existing lease  to find that the present value of thc  land alone is worth as many pounds  as it was shillings when the lease was  granted.  From horseshoes to sovereigns' have  values nrogressed between the reigns  of the First and the Seventh Edwards,  and it is indeed a far cry from the  no man's land of Lyndyn" to the administrative, county of London, with  its annual-value of $270,500,000.

Test Each Cow Separately.  There is no easier way to 'find out  the accurate production of each cow  than to weigh and test the milk of  each separately. This method is found  simple and practical by those who  have tried it. and their common verdict is that they receive much better  pay for this than any other labor done  on the farm.  The measure "of milk will Indicate  Its weight fairly well, but to be of  value the measure must be exact, and  It is much easier to weigh the milk  than to measure it.

The work which the London County  Council recently undertook of indicating the site of the gallows at Tyburn,  which was for centuries the principal  place of execution for criminals, has  now been completed.   The indication  "consists in the fixing in the carriageway at the junction of Edgware road,  Oxford street and Bayswater road, oi  a stone tablet marking the site of the  fixed gallows.   The tablet bears a representation, in brass, of the ancient  triangular gallows,  surrounded   by  a  six-feet  triangle   with.~.an inscription  in brass   letters   set   in  granolithic:  "Here stood���������Tyburn Tree���������Removed  1759," two words  appearing on each  side   of   the   triangle,   while   on   the  stone   balustrade   of   the  railings   of  Hyde Park, a bronze tablet directing  attention to the stone has been fixed  by H.M.

At a recent card party a novelty  was Introduced by giving each guest a  wire bracelet. Every time a game was  won a colored bead was strung on It.  These made rather pretty souvenirs to  take home.

Less than three weeks ago two  men came from High River to Oil  gnry for a  that they  their intentions and that no one  was more, surprised than they  when their "time" developed into  a shooting scrap in a Chinese joint.  A.s to������this the trial of tbo remaining one of the trio will no doubt-  elicit the facts. Tlie other is dead.  He died in jail, perhaps from illness, perhaps by bis own will. A.s  to that the inquest will tell. Tlie  fact remains that one life is lost,  one (that of the Chinaman who  was shot) was nearly lost, and another is probably blighted as tbe  price ^of the "time" these young  men started ont to have.  Surely, without .the need for  preaching, there is a lesson in this  small chain of events. Few people in Calgary know any of tbe  actors. They pass across thc stage  of our city life and are gone to  their several destinies. But they  have paid a high price for their  ���������'time," haven't they?
