Many noble lords and members  of parliament have replied sympathetically.    Mr. Martin wrote:  "Yours to hand. I take, very  little interest in, the wail of the  publican. If I had my way the  restrictions on liquor sellers would  be much more severe than they are,  and their licenses would erst much  more."  When read at a .'meeting of the  board, the letter was received with  laughter and cries of "shame."  The chairman said the reply of the  honorable gentleman would be  born in mind by tho trade.

Steven, formerly of the  copper metropolis, is evidently  doing well in Vancouver and  reaching for high spots. His many  friends will be pleased to read the  note below which is taken from a  recent coast paper:  An important deal was closed  today when the southwest double  corner of- Granville "and Nelson  streets, owned by Dr. Johnson  Gibbons, was sold to Mr. F. T.  Andrews of this city for approximately ������110,000.

The less a woman has to say the  longer it takes her to say it.  THE    VOLUNTEER.'  Companion to "Casey at the Bat."  The Bugville team was surely up against a rocky game:  The chances were they'd meet defeat and not undying fame;  Three men were hurt and two were benched, the score stood 6 to 4,  They had to make three hard-earned runs in just two innings more.  "It can't he done," the captain said, a pallor on his face;  "I've got two pitchers in the field, a mutt on second base !  And shoulrianother man get ipiked or crippled in some way,  The team would sure go down and out with eight men left to play.  "We're up against it anyhow, as far as I can see;   -  My boys ain't hitting like t'ley should, and that's what worries me.  The luck is with the other side, no pennant will we win;  It's mighty tough, but we must take our medicine and grin !"  The eighth round opened���������one, two, three the enemy went down.  The Bugville boys went out the same���������the captain wore a frown.  Thc first half of the ninth came round, two men had been put out,  When Bugville's catcher broke a thumb and could not go thc route.  A deadly silence settled o'er the crowd assembled there,  Defeat would lie alloted them, they felt it in the air;  With only eight men in the field 'twould be a gruesome fray,  Small wonder that the captain cursed the day he learned to play.  "Lend us a man to finish with," he begged the other team.  "Lend you a man ?" the /oe replied, "my boy, you're in a dream !  We came to win the pennant, too, that's what we're doing here;  There's only one thing yon can do:   "Call for a volunteer."  The captain stood and pondered in a listless sort of way,  He never was a quitter, and he would not be today;     '  "Is there not within the grandstand here," his voice rang loud and clear, ���������  "A man who has the sporting blood to be a volunteer?"  And again that awful silence settled o'er the multitude;  Was there a maiiiamong them with such recklessness imbued?  The captain stood wiih cap in hand, while hopeless was his glance:  ���������   And then a short and stocky man cried out, "I'll take a chance!."  Into the field he bounded with a step both finn .ind light,  "Give me the mask and mitt," he said; "let's finish up the fighi  The game is now beyond recall, I'll last at least a round;  Although I'm ancient, you will find me muscular and sound!"  His hair was sprinkled here and there with little streaks of gray;       ������  Around his eyes and on his brow a bunch of wrinkles lay,  The captain smiled despairingly and slowly turned awav,  When "He's all right!" one rooter yelled.   Another,-''Let him play 1"  "All right, go on !" the captain said.   Thc stranger turned around,  Took off his coat and collar, too, and threw them ou the ground,  The humor of the situation seemed to hit them all,  And as he donned the mask aud mitt the umpire yelled "Play ball."  Three balls the pitcher at him heaved, three balls of lightning speed,  The stranger caught them all with ease and did not seem to heed;  Plaeh ball had been pronounced a strike, the side had been put out,  And as he sauntered to the bench he heard the rooters shout.  Que Bugville boy went ont on strikes and one was killed at first;  The captain saw them fail to hit, and gnashed his teeth and cursed.  The third man smashed a double aud the fourth man swatted clear,  Then in a thunder of applause up came the volunteer.  His feet were planted in the earth, he swung a warlike club;  The captain saw his awkard pose and softly whispered "Dub I"  The pitcher looked at him and grinned���������-then heaved a mighty ball���������  The echo of that fearful swat still lingers with.us all !  Highi fastaud far the spheroid fiew.it sailed and sailed away;  It ne'er was found, so it's supposed, it still floats on today.  .Three runs came in, the pennant would be Bugville's for a year;  The fans and players gathered round to cheer the volunteer.  "What is .your name?',', the-captain cried.   "What is your name?" cried all.  As down ���������his cheeks great tears of joy were seen to rtiii and fall.;  For one brief moment lie wns still, then nmrmercil softjindjnwj:  Orient will celebrate the 4th of  July.

If your neighbour is prosperous,  let him prosper.    Do not growl op  grumble.    Say a good word for him  and let it go at that.    Do not be a  knocker.

Do  not stand aronnd like a cadaver.  Do not waste time feeling sore because some fellow has a little more  sand and sense than you have.   Do  a little hustling yourself.

No man ever became rich and  happy minding anybody's business  save his own. No man ever helped  himself up permanently, by knocking his neighbors down.  Give a kind word. Give it  liberall3r.

If 3rou want to throw something  at somebody���������-throw cologne. Or  roses. Do not throw brickbats.  Or mud. If you must kick���������goto  some secluded spot and kick yourself. For if you feel that way,  you are the man that needs kicking.  But whatever you do, do not be  a knocker.

The final drop of the curtain in the  Academy    of    Music,   Montreal,    on  March 18, not only closes the history  of one of the most famous of Canadian playhouses but recalls the memory of the player who first acted within its walls and who was long a favorite in Canada.   The theatre, which ia  to be turned into a haberdashery establishment, was erected in 1874 by a  number of prominent citizens of Montreal and in 1875 was opened with a  stock company managed and headed  by Eugene A. Macdowell.   The latter  was as popular in Toronto as he was  in Montreal and when he married tho  leading  lady  of his  company,   Miss  Fannie   Reeves,   a   Canadian   actress  hailing,   it   is   said,   from   Chatham,  Out., the event created widespread interest.   The Allans of "steamship fame  were interested' in the playhouse and  when the wedding took place in the  church  of St. James the  Apostle in  Montreal, the Allan fleet in Montreal  harbor was decorated with streamers  in honor of the occasion.   Macdowell  afterwards used to take his stock company  into  all  tlie  leading  Canadian  towns and  also to  the  West. Indies.  At Hamilton,  Ont.,  he  picked  up a  talented beginner with'a pathetic faco  and large appealing eyes.    In a season or two she was playing leading ingenue  roles with  the company    and  later she joined the stock company of,  A. M. Palmer and became its leading  lady.    Her   name   was Julia  Arthur,  now  Mrs.  Benjamin  Cheney of  Boston.   Another actor who was associated  with   Eugene Macdowell  was her  brother, Melbourne, wlio'was never in  the same class with him as an actor,  hut achieved  wide fame  by  winning  the heart and hand of Fannie Davenport in her day the most eminent of  American actresses.   Both Eugene and  and his wife passed away in the early  nineties  and   their  names  are  quite  unknown  to  the generation  of playgoers which has since arisen.   There  was a day,  however,  when  half the  y.Dung men of Montreal and Toronto  were in love with the gentle charms,  of Fannie Reeves.  It is worthy of note  that the man who locked the doors of  the Academy of Music on the night  of  Saturday,  March   19,  John  Cohen  by   name,   was   the   caretaker   whom  Macdowell engaged on' the opening of  the theatre in" 1875.

'Gluttony of Soliman and the Appetite  \ '    of Louis XIV.  / Touching the matter of eating, the  >' stories told by the old chroniclers and  historians of the abnormal appetites of  certain Roman and oriental men of  note fairly stagger belief.  Gibbon tells of Soliman, a caliph In  the eighth century, who died of acute  indigestion iu his camp near Chalet's,  in Syria, Just as he was about to lead  an army of Arabs against Constantino  pie. He had emptied two baskets ot  eggs' and figs, which he swallowed  alternately, and the repast was finished with marrow and sugar. In a pilgrimage to Mecca the'snme caliph had  eaten with impunity at a single meal  seventy pomegranates, a kid, six fowls  and a huge quantity of the grapes of  Tayef. ���������  Such n statement would defy belief  wore not others of a similar character  well avouched. Louis XIV. could hardly boast of. an appetite as ravenous as  Soliman's, but he would eat at a sitting four plntefuls of different soups, a  whole pheasant, a partridge, 4a plateful of salad, mutton hashed with garlic, two good sized slices of ham. a  dish of pastry and finish this ample  repast with fruit and sweetmeats.���������  London Saturday Review.

Nature demands it as an aid in carrying off the  impurities that have accumulated in  the blood during the indoor life of  winter. But unfortunately thousands  of people who do recognize the necessity of a spring medicine do not  know what is best to take and dose  | themselves with harsh, griping purgatives.  This is a serious mistake. Ask any  doctor and he will tell you that the  use of purgative medicine weakens  the system but does not cure disease. . In the spring the system needs  building up���������purgatives cannot do  this--they weaken you still more. The  blood should be made rich, red and  pure, and only a tonic medicine can  do this. The best blood building,  nerve restoring tonic medical science  has yet discovered is Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills. Every close of this medicine actually-makes new, rich blood.  This new blood strengthens every organ, everv nerve ana every part of  the body. This is why Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills cure headaches and backaches, rheumatism and neuralgia,  banish pimples and eruptions, and  give a glow of health to the most  sallow skin. Men, women and growing boys and g'rls who take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills eat well, sleep well,  and feel bright, active and strong.

Bakutus of the Congo Have Successfully Resisted^ White Man.  JPo bait spring guns and man traps  ��������� with live babies seems to be a regular  device with the simple Congo forest  tribes, who know that the white man  cannot bear to hear an infant cry.  This peculiarity was discussed recently before the .Royal Geographical So-  eiety in London by Mr. E. Torday,  who with Mr. Hilton Simpson and  Mr. Norman Hardy, made an expedi-  tion between October, 1907, and September, 1909, to investigate the native tribes in the Kasai Basin, in tho  centre of the-Belgian Congo.  The Bakutu, said he, were almost  the only, tribe of this region who had  been successful up to the present in  resisting the advance of the white  man. This was due to their skill in  forest warfare. The way leading to  their village was defended by poisoned  spikes hidden 'by leaves.  They used bows and arrows set like  traps in the form of" primitive spring  guns, and they ased the baby bait because they knew the European would  be unable to resist the temptation to  pick up an apparently abandoned  child. The poison they used was absolutely deadly.  When Mr." Torday, after the expedition had been saved from death by a  toy elephant, tried an old-fashioned  conjuring trick, and so got the tribe  to volunteer to carry their loads to  the next village -in safety, he threatened to set fire to the river, and, as  a beginning, lit up a little spare whiskey. This convinced the natives that  the white men were able to "destroy  anything, and thoy wero naturally  very keen to get rid of the magician.  The clockwork elephant came into  play through a difficulty in respect of  currency. The territory of the Bakon-  go had never before been crossed by  white men. The coinage of the tribe  takes the forin of bars of iron weigh-.  ing two pounds, and valued in English money at exactly sevenpence.  When the people heard that tha  travelers' stock of iron was nearly finished, they began to, show hostility.  Mr. Torday explained that j  The chief brought about the climax  by ostentatiously stealing our chickens, and this was, of course, a declar-,  ation of war. We were not in an easy  situation, for though we could have  held our own-in the event of a breach  of the peace, we should have had to J  fight our way back to civilization. |  At length a less important chief  gave them the means of an escape  from the difficulties. After the theft  of the chickens, he came and explained that he had no bad intentions himself, but that the great chief had decided to kill them. Said the lecturer:  "I replied that if he wanted war he  could have it, and I would slay all  his people with my elephant. Fortunately, among the many objects which  we carried about with us was a clockwork elephant, which was capable of  waving its trunk and humming and  walking along."  Relying on the imagination of the  negro, I proposed to show him my elephant. Mr. Hilton Simpson according-'  ly took him before my tent, which I  entered. I wound up the elephant,  and made it walk on some .boxes, and  then the tent door was thrown open;  our friend, seeing the uncanny beast,  wanted to run away.  Mr. Simpson insisted that he should  have another look, but this was too  much for the chief, for, shouting "I  am going to fetch thoso chickens  which I have been stolen," he ran*  back into the village, and in a few  minutes our property was restored to  us. " .       .  Mr. Torday said that amongst the  Basongo Meno tribes belief in transmigration was found. ���������  Thinks No One Could  Have it Worse  ���������Was Cured by  DR.

M>.-Tom Browne, the well-known  irtis't in- black and .white, died in  London recently,, at the early age ol  thirty-eight. - ' -.  Mr. Browne will always be remembered as the 'creator of the two'  tramps, Weary Willie and Tired Tirn,  and as the originator of the boom in  Dutch pictures. ��������� '  Ufa teacher taught Torn Browne  how to draw ��������� The instinct was there,  and he found his models in the men,  and women of evervday life. He was  .only eleven when lie started out to!  work in Nottingham lace market, and  it was about that time he sold his  first picture.  The drawing represented an old  Nottingham public-house and its very  stout.landlord, with a bibulous-looking policeman saying, "Time, gentlemen, please." The delighted proprie:  tor gave the young artist Ave shillings"  for it, and hung it in his tap-room.  When he was seventeen' the young  artist turned his footsteps towards  London, where hard work soon took  him into a foremost place;  Joyousness was the keynote of all  Mr. Browne's -work, and, indeed, of  his whole life.' He had a fund of  merry anecdotes, and whether tha  points were against himself or anybody else, he loved to relate them.  Mr. Browne once took a tour from  Paris to Gibraltar on a bicycle. , He  was accompanied by a friend, but as  neither of them 'spoke Spanish the  popular artist was obliged to make  use of his pencil' on all occasions.  Only once did he utterly fail. Want-  ing to take some soup, he-drew" an-  elaborate large sketch ot a soup  tureen. The mistress of the hotel  looked at it long and gravely, spread  out her arms as .if to convey the idea  of size, and hurried away, leaving the  two Englishmen considerably puzzled.  Presently she returned with beaming  smiles, holding the sketch in one  hand and the biggest pail in the village in the other.  Once Mr. Browne was introduced to  a city magnate, who said: "Glad'to  make your acquaintance, Mr. Tom  Browne. You are a public benefactor, sir. Many a merry Christmas  my family have had with your crackers." Torn Browne regarded this as  hrs best story. He never tired of tell-  ing it.  Mr. Browne once told an interviewer, "I remember in my early days an  adventure we had with a negro as a  model. I say 'we,' because there were  several of us, and we had our studio  in a. room over a stable. We could  not afford a servant to attend to our  wants, so we each took it in turns to  play 'general.'  "One day we met a negro, and almost fought with each other for the  possession of the prize, for here was  a model indeed. He earned his living  as a public performer inside public-  houses���������that is to say he was a glass-  chewer. When we told him we wanted to paint him his face was a study.  He was first amazed, then frightened.  Again and again ive humored him bv  telling him of our desire to paint him,  till' eventually he surprised us by  asking, 'Will it come off?' "   -  BACKACHE!

In   three   Canadian   provinces  within the past month, magazines  containing   explosives   have   accidentally  blown up, killing almost  a   score   of   people   and   injuring  many others.    Hardly a day. passes  but what the press contains reports  of the deaths of workmen engaged  in mining or in railway-construction from the careless or ignorant  use of explosives.    These scattered  cases, however,  attract but little  attention; it is only when a catastrophe occurs in which many lives  are lost that the public is aroused  to the need of adopting more effective   measures   for   protection   of  human life from this danger.  It is interesting to note what  other countries have done in dealing with the problem. In all  European coal-mining countries  regulations havo been made against  the use in coal mines of such explosives as are known to be dangerous. Tlie United States havo an  Explosives Testing Plant under  the direction of tho Geological  Survey, where explosives are tested  as to their fitness for particular  uses. The names of all explosives  that have successfnlly stood these  tests are published in a Rormissablo  Explosives List which is available  to tho public. An explosives primer  outlining the apfiop and uses of,tho  grown, and bearing orchards sell  at one thousand dollars an acre,  rain is scarce. Irrigation is practised  everywhere.    But now   and  season a  a few minutes. These rains are highly  prized, for irrigating water is measured closely, and served to each  user in proportion to his acreage.  Last summer a fruit grower who  owns forty acres of orchard was  rejoicing in one ot these precipitations of moisture when one of his  hired men entered the house.  "Why don't j'oii stay in out of  the rain?" inquired the fruic  grower.  "Oh, that's all right," replied  the man. "A little dew like that  doesu'c bother me a bit; I can  work right along just the same."  "That isn't the point!" exclaimed the rancher. "Next time  it rains, you come into the house.  I want that water on the land !" .

Nino persons out of every ten,  with a cinder or any other foreign  substance in the eye, will instantly  begin to rub it with one hand-while  hunting for a 'handkerchief with  the other. This is all wrong. The  right way is not to rub the eyo  with the cinder in it, but to rub  thc other as vigorously as you like.  A few months ago I was riding  on the engine of a fast express.  The engineer throw open the fi-ont  window of the cab, aud I caught a  cinder in niy eye which gave me  intense pain, I began to rub the  eyo desperately, when the engineer  called to me:  "Let that eyo alone, and rub the  other one."       s  Thinking he was chaffing me, I  only rubbed the harder.  "I know tho doctors think they  know it all; b;.t they don't, and if  you will let that eye alone and  work oil the other one you will  soon have tho cinder out," shouted  thc engineer.  I did as he directed, and soon  felt tho cinder down near the  inner canthus, and made ready to  take it out.
