The Laurier government has  added two .peculiarly indefensible  appointments to its already long  list. W; A. Beddoe's case attracted much notice. The Ottawa  Journal attacked the appointment  charging that while in the Yukon  Beddoe had been .virtually convicted of attempted blackmail by a  jury. So reputable a man as J. B.  Tyrrell publicly asserted that  Beddoe bad tried to blackmail him;  Beddoe brought suit, and the jury  threw out tho suit on the ground  rhat Mr. Tyrrell -had proved hit-  case. The Journal recounted the  f-tory and repeatedly declared that  Beddoe was unfit for the post.  Beddoe did  not d^ire to sue the  Western Float  W.

A  turkey was passing that way and  availed itself of the opportunity for  a luscious bite, and when Mr. McMynn drew his line he had a turkey hooked by the tongue'. A consultation was held and a surgical  operation was decided on, and  aside from having an impediment  in its .speech through the lack of a  tongue the feathered fish is still  enjoying life.���������Phoenix Pioneer.  newsp-iper, but left the country  huiriedly to proceed to Now Zealand at ������3,000 a year. .  Thus the Dominion of Canada is  represented'in New Zealand by a  person whom a Canadian jury has  pronounced a blackmailer and who  does not sue a Canadian newspaper which declares him morally  unfitted for tl.e post.  The case of Alex. Johnston. Ex-  M.P., also is bad. Mr. Johnston  was one of the three men who  formed the Blocker's Brigade in  the parliament which sat from 1904  to 1908. A peculiarly bitter partisan, he devoted himself to preventing the Conservatives in the Public  Accounts Committee from -detecting stealing in the Departments.  At that time the Department of  Marine and Fisheries was under  constant investigation and Mr.  Johnston steadily tried to keep the  lid on. In 190S he was defeated  by Mr. J  W. Maddin.  Mark what the Laurier government does. This is the chain of  events:���������  1. The Marino and Fisheries  Departmynr if* Gotten with graft.  2. Mr. Johnston does his best  to'keep the graft from being exposed.  8. Through the Courtney Commission aud the Cassels Commission  the existence "of the graft which  Mr. Johnston (-ought to shield is  abundautly proved.  4. Thereupon the Laurier government appointts Mr. Johnston Deputy Minister of the same  Department.  -  '5.    Thai is   Laurier's   way .of  handling graft.   The Boy Scouts.

A tramp called and asted for a dime  to help him to get to South America  ���������with, but the old fa miliar footstep  sounded not.  Six o'clock and no Mr. Bowser.  The winter winds moaned mournfully, and Mrs Bowser thought of the  dead killed by street cars aud autos.  A quarter ufter (>. and the cook came  upstairs to say that she bad seen  many mysteries in her life, but none  to compare wilh this.  Was thc- Bliic-1* Hand In It? Had  Mr. Bowser received threatening letters and refused to come dowu with  the dough?  Sis-thirty, and no step and no  Bowser. 'J'he moaning ot tbe wind  thickened So did rhe plot. It was  just possible that Mr. Bowser bad called a street car conductor a liar and  that both had got off rhe car to have  it out, but if nor Hint what could it be?  At 7 o'clock Mrs. Bowser went down  to dinner alone, but she hud no appetite. Sbe sat at the table and Thought  of how she miglir  have saved on  Ihe  DB.

She  loved Mr. Bowser, but until that moment she had not realized how much.  The cook came in and by way of  comfort said she had a brother who  failed to come home one nlgbt, and  after three days' search he was found  in the rear room of a cigar store, lie  bad gone there aud made a kick about {  their three for fives, and they had  sawed his head off. Depend upon il,  Mr. Bowser was lying somewneie witli  his head separated from his body.  Nevermore would he come home to  kick the front gate open.

The reply wan:  "No; no murders have been reported,  but we are expeetiug one every minute.   Will call you up later."  At 7:30 the call came.   Au old woman had been ruu over by a brewery  wagon, a boy had shot himself in the  hand, a married  man bad eloped, an  old  gentleman   had   broken   his  neck  while trying to bow to a chovus girl  in the street, but nothing to explain  the Bowser mystery.

Mrs.   Bowser  answered   the   above  questions   nnd   then   sat  down   and  wept.   She had been pretty good, but  she could   have  been   better  to  Mr.  Howser.   For instance, when he- wanted to buy n chicken farm it was her  duty to have been enthusiastic about  it lustead of figuring out that be was  hound to lose $2,000 a year.   His mau-  gled remains were being hidden by the  falling snow now, aud her conscience  was crying out.  Eight o'clock, and no Bowser.

"Yes,, this  Is   Dr.   Sokem.     What's  wanted?   Who is It? Oh, Mrs. Bowser,  1 eh?   Well, has Bowser started for the  north   pole yet?    Hasn't  come home  this   evening   and  you   are   worried?  Don't you go Into fits over  Bowser.  Never can tell what he'll do next, you  know.   Dead?   Nonsense!   He'll come  home all right and explain things. May  have stopped somewhere to look at a  flying machine.   Good night!"  Ten o'clock, and uo Bowser. The  wind was now moaning like a lost  soul. Mrs. Bowser listened to it and  wished she had let Mr. Bowser buy  that squash farm. He had never been  the same since mentally, and she was  to blame for it  Had some one come across his frozen  remains in a snowdrift? Were they  now lifting them up tenderly? Were  they now wonderlug if an extravagant  wife had driven the poor man from  home? They probably were, and Mrs  Bowser wept and resolved never to  pay over 7 cents for another handkerchief.  Eleven o'clock by the booming bells  It had been a night of terrible anxiety'. One���������two���������three boomed the bells,  and the cook, who had been asleep on  the kitchen table, came up to go to her  room aud halted to sny:  "if he's dead then he Is dead, and  we can't help it.

What  They  Used  to   Do  on St.   Pancake's Day  In  Merrie England.  Nowadays, if it were not for the  appearance on our tables of the succulent fritter, most of us would be  quite oblivious of the occurrence ot  Shrove Tuesday. But in the days ot  our grandfather the case was very  different, and many were the curious  and time-honored customs which  marked  the day.  Most curious, perhaps, of all t'hesc  Shrovetide customs were the great  foothill matches. The game, however,  was scarcely of the kind which would  be recognized by the Football Assocra.  tion, partaking as .it did more of fli->  strenuous character football as played in America.  Frequently, the majority of the nble-  - bodied  men of  a town took  part  in  these Homeric contests, and the field  extended several miles.  Thus, at Perth, a match used always  to be played botween teams representing, respectively, the Bachelors and  Benedicks of the town. Tlie kick-off  wa.s at two o'clock, and tire struggle  raged until sunset, the aim of t'v  married men being to deposit the ball  'irr a certain hole in an udjoininp  moor, while the goal towards which  tlie bachelors made was a pond  A similar struggle used to take  place bjtwi-en two of the rival nar-  ishes in Derby', and the side which  won thf day wu.- wont to proclaim  the fact by fastening the ball, d-'ekot*  with colored ribbon, to the spire oi  the ^parish church. Kveu the "{rentier" sex were not to b.i nxclude-i  from thc delights of Shrove Tupsd-i-  tootbi-11, and a match used to be  plnyecl ev.*M-y year b'tween thc niu-  trons  and  spinsters  of   rnvorn'-ss.  As in the mutches of the men, the  players were allowed to adopt any  ine-nia th ay pleased of propelling the  ball, and us tackling wns usually more  than vigorous, cr.sualtioii occurred.  Kven hi the country districts th"  matches must have been sonWhin-.-  of a trial to those who possessed no  sporting tastes; while in London the  dan-xers at Inched to the practice were  so great that the civic authorities issued . on ��������� order, forbidding, under  heavy penalties, the playing of football   in   the  streets.  In the old days, Shrove Tucsdax-  was the occasion of many quaint oh  servances at schools, especially iri  the North of England. Thus, at sonif  schools, it was customary for the  pupils to try to "bar out" their teach-  ers, and if they succeeded in this en  deavor they were allowed to claim ai;  indulgence of a day- or two's extra  holiday. As some compensation, however, to the master, every pupil had  to pay a small sum of money, known  as a "cock penny," which went towards the salary of the tenchers.  Perhaps the b-*strknown school custom still extant is that of "tossin-  the pancake" at Westminster," th*  pancake b?ing afti-rwr.rds scramble  for, and the appropriator of the l;ir<-  est  portion rewarded.  A rather brutal sport, which is now  fortum-.t-.ly,    k-.t-irnct,     -vf.s    that    o  "cockshying."

Some even have dizzy spells  and fainting spells, as had the writer  of this letter, before realizing the danger they are in.

Perks Thinks the Former  Would Be Better at Quebec.  The question as to whether the ill-  fated Quebec bridge should be replaced by a tunnel instead of ,by another  iverhead structure was j discussed by.  Sir Robert Perks, Bart., in an interview with The Standard,  In view of the tact that tenders will  be called early in May for the construction ' of a bridge the plans'-of  which have been strongly condemned  by The Scientific "American, the question is one of great public importance.  There are few men more competent  than Sir Robert Perks to pronounce  on the relative merits of bridge versus  tunnel, for the firm of which he is the  head has carried out'some of the-  greatest engineering works of modern  times', including the Manchester Ship  Canal and the famous Severn Tunnel.*  His firm also prepared the plans for  the now defunct scheme of building  the Channel Tunnel between England  and France, which scheme was killed  by the War 'Office; while the firm is  now completing the , first tunnel  through the Andes, to connect Argentina and Chile by railway.  "The proposal to construct a tunnel  instead of the proposed Quebec bridge  is a perfectly feasible one," said Sir  Robert recently, "and undoubtedly  in the long run a tunnel would'prove  far more satisfactory. The St. Lawrence River at that point is no wider  than the Severn River at the point  where we constructed the Severn Tunnel., That tunnel connecting England  with South Wales, under ,what is really, the Bristol Channel,-is, with-its  approaches, about eight miles long,  and took four year's to build.  "I take it that a tunnel and approaches for the St. Lawrence River  would have to be about the same  length. One of the great difficultie.-  to be encountered, however, in replacing the bridge by a tunnel, is' the fact  that the railways which would make  use of it have all been built on the  high level, and the "jades would have  to be changed for tremendous distances.  "As to the question of cost, the  bridge would cost, I should say, $12,-  500,000, and you can safely put the  cost of a tunnel at three times the  cost of a-bridge. -The Severn,Tunnel  cost $25,000,000."  "How does the cost of maintenance  compare?" Sir Robert was asked.  "The maintenance of a tunnel is  very much less than**the maintenance  of a bridge," he replied. "With a  bridge there is a very large annual  sum to be spent for maintenance, and  then*" you have to consider that a  bridge shows continual deterioration.  Witli a tunnel, these conditions apply  to a much more modified extent, so  that in the long run a tunnel is cheaper and more satisfactory than an enormous bridge of this kind. Another  consideration is that while a bridge  may possibly prove too low for the  huge ships of the future to pass under, a tunnel offers no possibility of  interfering  with  river  traffic."  Asked how deep the tunnel would  have to be below the bod of the river,  Sir Robert replied that twenty feet  would be ample.    *  , SOWING FLOWER SEEDS.  Get the Best and the Freshest���������Firming the Soil.  To secure a good stand the first  requisite is first class seed. Flower  seeds are generally smaller and more  delicate than farm seeds, and the purchase of poor grades at bargain rales  is usually a waste of time and money.  Plant only strong, fresh-seed. Usually  tlie highest priced,ls the cheapest.  The next .step Is the preparation of  the  seed   bed.    See   that  the soil   is  thoroughly mellowed.   The first stage  in  germination   Is  the absorption   of  water.    The rate of absorption is de-'  - termined* by the number of points' of  contacr between the seed coat and the  soil particles.    Finning the soil multiplies  the number of points of contact; hence the,wisdom of one famous  authority's rule to put your( foot on  everything you  sow.    If the soil   is  'wet this firming Is inadvisable, but If  dry it 'is quite necessary,  The depth of the covering Is governed largely by the size of the seed.  Generally seeds may be covered to a  depth equal In thickness.to the length  of Ihe seed. Very small seeds should  not be covered at all, the better plan  being to shade them for a few days  with papers to hasten germination.  Each class of seeds has its own  germlnative temperature requirement.  Some, like the sweet pea, sprout when  the frost Is hardly out of the ground,  whereas other kinds require a good  warm soil, and the seed will rot If  planted too soon. The habitat of the  plant will usually give one a clew in  this regard. Plants from cool regions  or high altitudes usually start early,  and those from warmer regions should  not be planted until later.  As-the seeds beglu to sprout it Is  well to go over the surface of the bed  with a rake nnd brenk tbe crust for  the purpose of assisting the young  plnntlet In getting through.  Competition should be eliminated by  keeping jhe weeds down and by, thinning out. Overcrowding means weak,  spindly plants. Give plenty of room  and sunlight if you want your plants  to thrive.

Plant Them In a Ditch  to Seed. ���������  To have the best success with this  plant one must bear in mind the fact  that it Is a cool season crop. The pea  produces its best crop before the hot,  dry weather of summer comes on.  The seed should be sown in the fall  or early In the spring. It is a good  plan to sow the seed In the bottom of  a trench four or five Inches deep,  cover with one inch of soil and gradually fill In Inter as the plants get  large. The pea delights In a deep,  rich, retentive, though well drained  soil. The'first sowing mny be mado on  the south slope, followed by successive  plantings. The bloom period may be  extended by making the last sowing ou  a north slope or iu some location where  the pea will receive partial shade  The pea requires an abundant supply  of water. If the season turns off dry  ihe plants should'be watered copiously, using the seed trench as an Irrigation ditch.  As soon ns the plants reach a height  of six Indies a support or trellis of  some kind should be provided. Probably the most convenient material for  this purpose is poultry nettlug. The  netting can be had in any desired  width and can bo stored through the  winter and used from year to year.  Never allow any seed pods to mature. The more flowers you cut the  more you will have.  There are numerous varieties of the  sweet pea and ample room for choice  as to colors desired and also as to  dwarf or tall flowering sorts.

Connors, cf Buffalo, bet.  ter known as "Fingy" Connors, has  of recent years broken into the American magazines against his will, Since  he became boss of the New York State  Democracy,    the    muck-rakers   have  been   after    him   in   full   cry.    His  parents were Canadian Irish, but he  was born in western New York State  fifty-three years  ago.    He  has  risen  from the position of dock laborer and  keeper of a tough liquor dive, to the  control' of the grain-shovelling  business  of the  American  ports on  the  great  lakes,  and  is a power in the  Democratic party.      Even  the great  William Randolph Hearst had to form  an  alliance  with   "Fingy"- when  he  sought the Democratic nomination for  governor of the state.      He controls  two journals in Buffalo of a more or  less yellow character, The Courier and  The Enquirer.   Some  ten years' ago  Connors developed a temporary affection for Canada, the country of his  parents.   It was at a time-when he  was at war with the longshoremen of  Buffalo and seeing himself beaten, he  threatened to ruin Buffalo as a cen-.  tre of grain  transhipment  by establishing vast elevators at Montreal and  Port Colborne, the southerly entrance  of the Welland Canal.   Hon. Richard  Harcourt acted as his Canadian representative and the proposal went so far  'that when a party of Fenians tried to  blow up the  Welland Canal, it was  generally believed for a few days that  the conspiracy was the work of Buffalo   grain-scooper.*,   grown desperate  at the* thought that Conners was going   to    permanently   destroy    their  means of livelihood. Shortly afterward  a  settlement    was, reached   between  Connors arid the "Scoopers," and he  immediately laid down on the Canadian proposal.   Whether it was a bluff  from the start, it is difficult to say..  As a matter of fact, the proposition  which Connors made respecting this  elevator building was most unbalanced, and had he carried it out "Fingy"  would have gone broke.

French's  scouts during the rebellion. Although  called scouts, the little troop raised  at Fort Qu'Appelle by Capt. French'  was really   an   independent   cavalry-  troop, doing very little real scouting-  duty.   The men had to supply their-  own arms, horses and equipment and  were paid five dollars a day.   Young  Gifford and a number or other young  English  gentlemen   were  farming   in  the Qu'Appelle Valley at the time, and  with the adventurous spirit   of  their  kind, they readijy enrolled themselves  for the campaign, Gifford, who is the"  fourth son of Baron Gifford of Amprey  Park, Gloucestershire, had been educated on the training ship Worcester  and had for a short time served as an  officer in,.the mercantile marine.    In  1882 he left the sea and went to Egypt  as galloper for a newspaper correspondent, at the end of the campaign coming to  Canada, going to  the Northwest and taking up land.    Few who  participated in the campaign of 1885  associated   the  private   of   French's  corps with the heroic Gifford of the  Metabele campaign of 1895.  When the  Metabele  campaign of  1896 occurred  he raised two troops of irregular cavalry   which   were   called   "Gifford's  Horse," and with which he performed  distinguished   service.       He   was  at  length severely wounded and had to  have one of his arms amputated  at  the shoulder.   The Boer war, despite-  his maimed condition, drew him out  to South Africa, where he joined the  Kimberley Mounted Corps, serving under Col. Mahon's staff at the relief of  Mafeking.

The other day a prominent divine  connected with the Social and Moral  Reform  League, and the Lord's Day  Alliance, and the Methodist Church,  visited  the House of Commons.   He  wished  to  appear in  committee and  make certain objections to proposed.  legislation that was beim*; out forward'  in certain private bills.   He appeared-  in the committee, made his objections,  hut the bills went on their way just  the same.  ."The moral.and spiritual life of the  people," he contended, "would be  killed."  This much he confided to several of  his acquaintances who were loitering  around the lobbies. He asked for their  support, and these obliging Parliamentarians took the reverend divine  to one of the round tables in the green  baized room. The"waiter appeared and  asked for the orders he took down  everything from Scotch and soda to  ginger beer.  "Surely you do not sell liquor here,"  said the preacher.  "Oh, yes, sir," was the response.  "And just to think, I have been  preaching for three years'that you  Liberals had abolished the bar in the  House of Commons. No, thank you,  nothing to-day," he replied.  And meanwhile the reverend divine  discussed the observance of the Lord's  Day while his companions drank  their Scotch.

Ruddick, has completed arrangements tor carrying on an extensive series of experiments during the  present season, having for its object  the improvement of the creamery industry in Canada. The work will be  in charge of G. H. Barr, chief of the  dairy division, assisted by J. G. Bouchard, creamery expert, and other  members of the dairy staff.  The experiments will be conducted  at a creamery and at the farms ef  some of its patrons, somewhat on l:ie  lines of the experiments in the cooling and treatment of milk conducted  by Mr, Barr during the past two seasons.  The exports of butter have fallen off  during recent years, but there is no  decrease in the quantity manufactured, and it is important that the quality should be of the highest class and  that the creameries should be conducted on economical lines.
