Walsh wealthy and made the  great Camp Bird mine producing  its millions. A similar discovery  has just been made in the Iowa-  Tiger, another Sau Juan, Colorado  property. In this case the mine  bad not been abandoned but from  its lofty position above Silver lake  has been shipping lead-silver ore  nearly as steadily as its more famous neighbor. Recently occasional  high returns in gold caused a  search of the mine, and a high-  grade streak of ore was found on  the hanging wall. Since it differs  greatly from the other ore of the  mine it had passed unnoticed. The  full value of tbe find is yet uncertain, but we may at least Wish,  says the Scientific Mining Press,  that it may prove equal to that in  the Camp Bird.

SANDOW   WAS   THE   VICTOR.  Stripped to the Waist, the Strong Man'  Wrestled   With the Enraged Animal,  Who Was Mittened and Muzzled, and  Thoroughly Subdued Him.  The story that Richard, later term-  ' td "Coeur de Lion." derived his namo  from the feat of tearing a live liou's  heart out of its body Is usually regarded today ns npocurypnnl. At this  distance ot time it- li Impossible to  ��������� tell what wns tlie truth. But if Kl;-h  nrd hud the strength of Saudow aud  strove with tbe 'ion under conditions  similar to those under which Saudow  wrestled with a .menagerie lion lu Snu  Francisco soiue years ago there may  be a basis of fact for the legend. In  the Strand Majjazine Mr. Saudow told  of the event:  It was to be a struggle between  brute strength mid human strength  Merely in order to prevent the lion  from tearing me to pieces with his  claws, mittens wore to be placed on  his feet and a muzzle over his head.  This lion. I must tell you, was a particularly fierce animal and only a  ���������week before had enjoyed a dish that  ���������was uot on rlie menu���������his keeper.  Well, the ougiigcuient was accordingly made nnd "A Lion Fight with  Sandow", widely advertised. The announcement, I am told, scut a thrill  through the cities for a hundred miles  round, and In order to be equipped for  a performance which would be found  to attract hundreds of thousands of  people I decided to rehearse my flght  ivitb the lion beforehand.  I had it in my mind that the effect  of miftening and muzzling the heast  might be to put liltn off the fight by  frightening him. and. realizing how  foolish I should appear facing a lion  that would not fight. 1 was desirous  of making certain that this should not  be the case.  Accordingly the Hon was mittened  ond muzzled, but only with the aid of  .sis strong men. aud 1 entered the cage  unarmed and stripped to the waist.  What happened was In direct opposition to my expectations; bagging bis  paws nnd Incasing his bead in a wire  cape only served to enrage the brute,  and no sooner had I stepped inside  than he crouched preparatory to  springing upon me.  His eyes ablaze with fury, he hurled  himself through the air, but missed,  for I had stepped aside, nnd before ho  had time to recover J caught him with  my left arm round the throat and  round the middle with my right, and.  although his weight was 5"J0 pounds, 1  : lifted him as uijru as my shoulder, gave  him a huge bug to instill into his mind  that he must respect tne and tossed  - him to the floor.  Roaring with rage, the beast rushed  fiercely toward me and raised his huge  paw to strike n heavy blow at my  head. As his paw cut through space  I felt tbe air fairly whistle and realized  not only my lurky escape, but the  lion's weak point and my strong one.  If only he struck uie once I knew It  would be my coup de grace, and I took  particular-cure that be never should  As 1 ducked niy bead to avoid tho  blow I succeeded iu getting a good  grip round the lion's body, with my  chest touching his and his feet over  my shoulders and hugged him with all  my strength. The more he scratched  and tore the harder I hugged him. and,  although his feet were protex-ted by  mittens, bis claws tore: through my  tights and part of my skin. But I had  hiin'as in a vise; bis mighty efforts to  get away proved of no avail.  Before leaving the cage, however, I  ���������was determined to try just one other  feat Moving away from the lion, I  stood with my back toward him, tbu3  openly inviting him to jump on me.  At once he sprang right on my back.  Throwing up my arms, I gripped his  head, then caught him firmly by the  neck and In one moment shot him  clean over my bead, assisted by the  animal's own Impetus, and launched  him before me like a sack of sawdust,  the action causing him to turn a complete somersault.  While he lay there, dazed, the door  was.unlocked, and I went out, my legs  and neck bleeding and with scratches  all over my body. But for these trifles  I cared nothing. 1 felt that I had conquered that lion and that I should have  little difficulty In mastering It on the  next occasion In public-  So thoroughly was he tamed, however, that the. great Dght lasted but  two minutes. When he would Qght no  more I lifted him up and walked rouud  the arena with him ou my shoulders,  he remaining as firm as a rock and as  quiet as an old sheep.  HIRED APPLAUSE.  The   Great   Rachel   Made  the   Claque  Earn Its Money.  Speaking of applause in theaters, a  theatrical man relates the following  concerning the great actress ItaciieJ:  "It seems that upon a certain opening night Itacbel received enthusiastic  applause, hut on the second night it  was so noticeably slim that the actress  felt deeply grieved and bitterly complained that the claque was not doing  Its duty. The leader of the hired 'applause makers' on hearing of her displeasure wrote her a letter in which he  endeavored to excuse himself from any  blame.  " 'Mademoiselle���������I cannot remain under the obloquy of a reproach from  such lips as yours,' he began. 'The  following Is nn authentic statement of  what really took place: At the first  representation I led the attack in person not less than thirty-three times.  We had three acclamations, four hilarities, two thrilling movements, four  renewals of applause and two Indefinite explosions. In fact, to such an  extent did we carry our applause that  the occupants of the stalls were scandalized and cried out a Ia portel  " 'My men were positively exhausted  wllh fatigue and even Intimated tome  that they could not again go through  such an evening. Seeing such to he  the case. I applied for the manuscript,  mid after having profoundly studied  the piece I was obliged to make up my  mind for the second representation to  certain curtailments in the service of  my men.'  "TlioWriter thus goes on nt some  length to assure the actress he will  try lo make future amends and requests ber to believe in his profound  ad mlrn tion."���������Exchange.  WHEELS IN THE WEST.  TALKING IN  FIGURES.  Significance of Certain Numbers In the  Telegraphers' Code.  "In the telegraphers' code numbers  have special significance of which the  geuer.il public is not aware," remarked  a veteran key night the othor day.  "Most everybody knows that 30  means 'good night,' or the end of a  story, but few outside the profession  know that 31 is also a code sign. Railroad operators, however, kuow that  this call is a signal to the operator nt  the other end to come back and repeat  train signals to the sending operator  It also has another meaning. 'Train  order to be signed by conductor and  engine driver.' Nineteen, on the other  hand, menus that the train order is not  to be signed by conductor or engine  driver. Twenty-four has also the latter significance on some roads.  "Five is simply nn interrogation  point and in the vernacular could hi*  trauslated 'Anything doing?' Thirteen  signifies 'Do you understand?' Twen  ty-five means 'busy,' but nobody seems  to know how it came to have that significance unless perhaps it means that  the operator is still in the midst of his  work, being some distance away from  30.  "Seventy-three means 'best regards.'  and newspaper men and operators em  ploy this expression constantly, or  course 23 has come to mean in this  numerical language just what it does  in ordinary parlance, 'skiddoo.' 'va  moose' or 'butt out' or any of the thousand and one other equivalents."���������New  York Llerald.  The Growth of Manufactures Marks a  World's Record.   ,  Winnipeg is not the only place in the  West that has wheels. In all probability there never was a case in tlie  world of so large a number of manufacturing towns jumping up in a new  country in so short a time as happened in the last ten years���������five for that  mutter���������in the once vast idle nowhere  of the wheal bolt.  It .may be an okl-fasliioned idea, this  of having smokestacks) nnd power-  'hous'js in a wilderness of wheat. And  it's tlie beginning of a curious phase  of progress in the prairie country, that  already before the West has found itself in economics there are two distinct classes of people quite outside of  polities.  One is the farmer; the other the  manufacturer. Now it's only a few  years since that meant practically the  West as apposed to the east. Wc have  heard over and over the plaint of the  ploughman on ihe prairie that the  West was being bled for the sake of  industrial pockets in tlie east.  J3ut almost suddenly we arc confronted with the fact���������thai in tlie West  also is growing up a class of people  whose interests are. to keep a reasonably high tariff wall. - For the West  lias begun to be an industrial country. There are scores of young towns  and little cities that are yearning to  make as much as possible of what the  West needs.  Kcgina, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Loth bridge, Moosejaw, Prince  Albert, I'ortage la J'rairic���������yes, and a  whole scries of young communities in  new parts of the land���������all are becoming as inucii interested in tlie niade-  iii-Caiiiida idea as any pint of the  cast.  Does the western farmer want the  smokestack and the power-house kept  out of thu West? That seems improbable.  The western fiirmcr owes something  to the town and city. He will not do  well to forget that a town on the  prairie is not merely an aggregation  of stores and shop fronts and place.-/  of amusement. The town as a hive of  industry has as much right to develop  as the countryside. The city has a  place in the development of the country quite as much as tlie school section. .Some think the biggest thing  about a town ought to be the red elevator or the water tank. They say  that as long as Winnipeg and Port  Arthur and Fort William have enough  elevators and box cars there's no need  for factories.  But that's a very narrow estimate  of what development really means.  The farmer and the tradesman and  the elevator employe are not enough  to make cities. There must be factories. There must be population who  prefer the factory to the farm.  Sueli places are growing up. They  will continue to grow. The cry for  lower duties will never prevent them  The West has as much inherent  right to develop its water powers and  to exploit its areas of power fuel as  tlie east ever had. What does that  mean���������but factories? And how can  factories develop under free trade?���������  Canadian Courier.

"Shoes for Sunday," Pierre stated  to the young man who advanced; to  meet him as he entered the salesroom  of the big shoe factory.  He then sat heavily down on one  of the red plush seats and allowed the  salesman to insert his feet in a pair  of bright yellow shoes. When they  were fairly oh, Pierre stood, moved hid  feet this way and that, took a few  steps, and shaking his head, sat down  again.  "What's the matter?" asked the  clerk. "Do they hurt?

Too Much Burns.  One can sympathize with the piety  of the Tarn o' Shanter Burns Club,  says a Glasgow paper, in restoring  the tombstone which marks tho resting-place of Mary Morison, who died  109 years ago, at the ago of 20. But  even the most enthusiastic Burni  worshippers must think that the limit  has been reached in the addition to  the Alloway Museum of the old stone  trough whieh was in use at the Tarn  o' Shanter Inn, Ayr, in the poet's lifetime. From what we know of Burns  there is not the slightest probability  that he ever drank out of it.  DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED  by local applications, as they cannot  reach tlie diseased portion of the ear.  There is only one way to .cure deafness, and that is by constitutional  remedies. Deafness is caused by an  inflamed, condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian: Tube. When  this tube is inflamed you'have a  rumbling sound or imperfect hearing,  and when it is entirely closed, deaf,  ness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this  tube restored to its normal condition,  hearing will be destroyed forever;  nine cases out of ten are caused by  Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of "the mucous surfaces.

Which is the most important newspaper in the British Empire? Ninety-  nine people out-of a hundred would  probably reply "The Times." But  they would be wrong, that is, if one  may judge the importance of a newspaper by. the official character of-its  news., -  The title really belongs to The London Gazette, the oldest and least read  of any newspaper in the old country.  It is issued by the Government,'and  is the channel of communication between royalty, the Cabinet, and the  people. Kings-and Queens have written for it, while Cabinet Ministers are  regular contributors. Its advertisements are regulated by law, ancl no  great manufacturer could obtain a  "puff," even although he were willing  to pay $50,000 a line for it.  The Gazette varies considerably in  size. Sometimes it consists merely o(f  one page, and sometimes between 400  and 500. In one .memorable week, in  1847���������the "Railway Year"���������so many  Parliamentary notices had to be published that The Gazette for one week  totalled about 3,000 pages; but the  price always remains the same���������namely, Is., and it is said to yield a profit  of about $100,000 a year, in spite of  the fact that it has never been sold at  a railway bookstall and no newsboy  has ever cried its name in tho street.  Practically the only people who buy  it aro Government officials and lawyers.  The Oazotfe is the oldest and at the  s.'iine time the youngest newspaper iu  the kingdom, as well as being tho  most imjiortiint. It was first published in it-Co, in the reign of Charles 11.,  and has over since appeared twice' a  week, with supplementary is.-ues now  and then if required. "It was first published at Oxford, as the court was in  residence there during the Plague, but  when the hitter abated it was brou������ht  to London, and for more than "130  years has boon published by Messrs.  Harrison, the well-known printers of  St. Martin's Lane. At the same time,  it is the youngest newspaper on account of the fact that it was only a  few months ago that it contained the  following announcement:���������  "This Journal has been registered at  the G.P.O. for transmission by inland  post as a newspaper."  Previously it had been regarded a?  a Government publication onlv, and  was dispatched "O.H.M.S.," in this  way escaping postal charges altogether; but apparently the Government  saw a way to reap a' few extra halfpennies.  An interesting illustration of the  important position held by The Gazette before newspapers and telegraphs  were what they are is furnished by  the manner in which the news of the  Battle of the Alma was made public  in 1854. The news was reeeived by  the Secretary of State on Saturday  evening. There-were no newspapers  until Sunday, and it was important  that the public anxiety should be allayed by the widest possible circulation of such a piece of news.  James Harrison was sent for, an.i  the position explained to him when he  reached Downing Street. He imnipdi  ately thought 'of tlie theatres. There  were three of them open;, why not  have the telegram rend out there? The  plan was considered excellent, and  Mr. Harrison returned fo St. Mart in'*  Lane, set up the news with his own  hands, and sent men round to the  theatres with early copies of The Gaz  ette. "See the manager," were the instructions to the messengers. "Take  no refusal. Insist on having the performance stopped by order of the Secretary of State while this news is read  out." The men obeyed the order to  the letter, and at Drury Lane and  other theatres the scenes were historic.  In the meantime Mr. Harrison made  his way to the Mansion House arid  communicated the glad tidings to. the  Lord Mayor and sheriffs.

Georges, Mme.;Doryal, Socage, JLock-  roy, Provost and ttvo new scenes.  This extravagance would alarm the  director, who would put off the production of the play till better days.  Then Victor Hugo would appear and  shyly draw a manuscript out of his  pocket. He would agree to everything.  The stock company would play his  piece admirably, since all he wanted  was n good ensemble; no new decorations would be needed nor any change  at all.   .  So the piece would be read, nnd as  the roles were distributed Hugo would  say musingly. "Dieu, how fine Frederick would be In that part!" "That Is  true," Horel would murmur, and a few  days af'.cr he would announce that  Frederick was engaged. Hugo would  then remonstrate that this destroyed  the equipoise of the cast, and Raucourt.  Laferriere ������ted Mile. Georges would  be engaged. Then Hugo would attack  the stage setting. Old scenes that  the public had tired of were almo"st  nn insult to these great artists. If  Horel showed reluctance a t this, Hugo  would threaten to withdraw his piece.  And so the game would go on till,  little by little, Hugo had obtained everything he wanted, even to the  changing of the paper hangings in the  stage boxes.  Facts From France.

It  is north of the river Darling and Is  about 300 miles long and 100 broad,  consisting of sandy dunes or ridges.  Its want of trees, except along tbe  creeks, gives the country a sterile appearance. These ridges were probably  formed by the joint effect of winds  nnd a gradually retiring'sea.'According to Captain Sturt, these waters  were gradually lost by evaporation or  carried to some undiscovered sea.

Once upon a time our navy was ruled by a lord high admiral, a fine old  title.- resplendent with' many of our  greatest maritime achievements, says  a riaval expert in a recent article.  This ancient office is now represented  by the Lords of the Admiralty under  the headship of the First Lord, a civilian member of the Government, impersonating the-national control ofthe  navy, and responsible to the King and  -Parliament for the 'entire naval machine. This icsponsibility may be described as embracing the building of  the- required types of ships, the appointment of elticient captains, and  the bestowal of honors and rewards  upon the proper persons. He, in fact,  sees that the policy, of the Admiralty  is directed in accordance with the  policy adopted by his party towards  the international situation.  His chief instruments are the Naval  Lords of the Admiralty led by the  First Sea Lord, who is his adviser  touching all matters relating to the  efficiency of the-navy as a fighting ma-  chince. He hiis the right to appoint  oflicers to positions of second in command, and in effect largely influences  all other appointments. Should the  readiness of tho fleet for war on its  mobilization ever fail in emergency,  his would be the supreme responsibility. His understudy . is the Second  Sea Lord, who must be'ready to step  into his shoes 'if. required. His spe  ciiil responsibility is for the manning  of our ships and the training of our  sailors, and he may make appointments .up to the rank of navigating  officer. We then come to the Third  Sea Lord, whose duty is the control  of shipbuilding, the designs of oui  ships, their progress and completion  as well as the provision of guns nnd  machinery. Bolow these a junior lord  is in charge of transport and coaling,  a civil lord of'contracts and building,  while a permanent secretary deals  with the staff of the department and  a Parliamentary secretary with fin  ance.  The organization of our navy for war  has recently been supplemented by tbe  creation* of a new body which is to be  known as the Naval War Council.  While its functions will be largely analogous to those associated with the  general staff of. the arm its constitu  tion will differ materially from that  of the latter. Its standing members  will be only three in number, com  prising the First Sea Lord, the Director of the Naval Intelligence De^rl-  ���������nent, and the director of a new department to be known as the Nava  Mobilization Department. The latter  will now take over all the duties hith  erto devolving upon the War College  at Poitsmouth and upon the Intelligence Department.  Its duties will embrace the preparation and working out of plans for the  conduct of war with every possible an  tagonist and the disposition of our  tieets and squadrons in accordance  With the strategical schemes decide-i  on.  7 At this point we leave the admini?  trative for tlie aetive and fighting  branch, whose chiefs are the leaders ot  our battle fie:-ts, full admirals, vice-  admirals, and rear-admirals���������the gen  era! oflicers, lieutenant-generals, and  major-generals'of naval war. Superior  to these are the admirals of the fleet  ���������the field-marshals of the navy���������who  are generally oflicers on the retired  list. To the hands of our admirals i-  committed the-safety of the realm.  Thus the, admiral commanding at the  Nore guards the mouth of the Thame?  the east const, and coasts of Scotland.  The admiral holding the Portsmouth  command keeps watch and ward iu  the Channel from beyond Dover to  Torbav; whence the safety of our  shores round Land's End and up the  west coast is ensured by the admiral  in command at Plymouth. These com  mands are the plums of the service. A  fourth 'admiral is entrusted with tbe  care of the Irish coast.  Vice-admirals;,take supreme command of a fleet and of an important  foreign naval station. The rear-admiral acts as second in command of a  sea-going fleet, or may be first in com  maud on a foreign: station of lesser  importance.  The success of an admiral in any  operation of war will entirely depend  upon the efliciency of She captains  commanding the various fighting units  of his fleet. More than ever in these  days of mammoth battleships crnm  med with gigantic engines of destruction will "the captains courageous" o*  our navy exercise a determining influ  ence upotr the issue of battles.  A captain's authority, power, and  responsibility, especially when in command of a big ship, altogether transcend those of a colonel in the army.  In a vessel carrying, say, 800 men, all  confined within a small space, adnm  antinc discipline is indispensable  The captain afloat, therefore, maintains the state of an almost sacred  autocrat���������a sort of Dalai Lama of the  sea���������living and messing alone apart  from all his subordinates. Acting  through his first lieutenant or commander he is responsible that the  King's regulat'ons and Admiralty in-  struction.J are observed throughout hi.-  ship. His further promotion to admiral is determined by seniority, but  he may remain a captain from fifteen  to sixteen years.  Every rank in the navy has to sustain a heavy weight of responsibility,  and probably the commander is more  burdened than any. His post is no  sinecure, and he has few moments oi  leisure. He seems, indeed, to be a  portion of themachinery which is always in most active operation. Not a I  detail of the interior life of the ship  escapes him.  There are three grades of lieutenant!  ���������4he sub, the junior, and the scnioi  lieutenant.  A TAX OH BRAI..8.  Canadian Architects Demand a Chance  Agairiet American Rivals;  There is at least one phase of this  tariff discussion which has not as yet  been touched.   So thinks- the Royal  Architectural    Institute   of   Canada,  lately airing its views in Winnipeg.  This body expressed itself frankly the  other day; it wants a tax on bnips���������  principally CJnele Sam's brains, which  the members think are allowed to mix  too freely in the Canadian buildinc  trade.    The    R.A.l.C.    claims    grave  grievances;   .that-, they    are    losing  money ai I prestiue bee: ..se of unfair  American  competition. _ Here  is  the  situation, and it does look as if the  Canadian designer   cf, buildingi   was  not getting quite a square deal.   Suppose a Montreal architect received a  sudden,   bright  inspiration  and   perfected plans for a public building under proposed erection���������say in Boston.  Now  suppose that his  plans,  of  all  those submitted, were considered the  most satisfactory by the building promoters.   Lucky dog! you exclaim. But  wait���������the promoters  would turn that  clever Montrealer down.   Why?   Just  because the United States Government  has   a   restrictive   clause   which   prohibits any other than a citizen and  resident of Uncle Sam's country from  tendering plans (or a buildins on the  south  side of the line.   The United  States ar :hitects have prevailed upon  their Government to adopt this' exclusive policy.   Thus they have secured   professional  protection for themselves, and .they havo furthered, the  interests of native art by striking a  blow at polyglot architecture.   So far  Canada has no.t retaliated���������and it's retaliation,   which  the   Royal   Architectural Institute wants.. American architects  are  given   the   freedom  of   the  Dominion.   They are taking the  big  jobs away from Canadians.    If there  is a skyscraper or a big hotel or station  to   be  built,  who gets  the  contracts?     Some   "expert"   from   New  York.    What-is  more,  this  "expert"  employs the contractors from hisown  country whom he knows; often imports  the fine materials  with  which he is  better acquainted   than  those of  na  tive  production.   Arc not Canadians  competent to compete with their A*n-  merican rivals?  Where are the dozens  of   chaps   who   graduate   every   year  from  the  big engineering schools  at  Toronto or Montreal or Kingston?  "It's not a question of competency;  it's one'of experience," said an architect to the writer the other day.  "Chaps trained in Canada can build  just as good skyscrapers a- the fellows  across the line. United.States architects have built more of them, that is  all; they have made their 'rep'; the  public trusts them, while they are inclined to doubt us. There will have to  be some educational work done.1' Let  the Government keep out the American' architect like he shuts 'us out,  and we'll show our public what we! can  dol"���������Canadian Courier.  AUSTRALIA'S CAPITAL  Spiritual "Mixer."  "A spiritual 'mixer' " i3 the name  that is being given to Wm. O. Sealey,  member for Wentworth Conntv, Ontario, in the House of . Commcns.  He has been given the name because  of a speech he made recently at the  new town of Osealey,: which was called  after him as a mark of gratitude foi  what he had done for the town. ���������*  The speech was made at a garden  party in the new town. Mr. Sealey  was chairman at the speechmaking  feature of the party, and, after referring to the commercial ani educational progress of the town, he expressed  the hope that the various denominations would unite in building a  church.  The rest of the story may be told by  quoting a newspaper of the neighborhood, which, in reporting Mr. Sealey's  speech, says: As the community;has  honored him with naming the new  postoflice and town after him, he felt  particularly proud and interested in  its growth, and especially along spiritual lines. Therefore he would take  pleasure in laying a hundred dollars  on the corner-stone of the first church  that was built, irrespective of denom  .ination, because he was brought up  in the Methodist Church, his wife was  a Presbyterian, he lived next, door to  a Catholic Church, his nearest'neighbor was an Episcopalian, while his  grandparents were Baptists, and there  was much good in them all. -  Canadian Art In Liverpool.  The Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool,  was recently the scene of an exhibition of Canadian paintings, under the  direction of Mr. ^Edmond' Dyonnet,  the Montreal artist. The display was  a notable one in many ways, and attracted a great deal of attention and  favorable notice. In all there were  shown 113 paintings and five pieces of  statuary. The exhibition was opened  by Hon. Sydney Fisher, Dominion  Minister of Agriculture. The .president of the Royal Canadian Academy,  Mr. William Brynier, of Moutreal. sent  "A Blackfoot Indian," "October in  Canada," and "Under the "Apple Tree"  (water color). Mr. F. S.

A  Neutral  Site   Has   Been   Selected  r  ,    ... After Long Dispute.'  After ten years' delay, occupied  chiefly in wrangling between the Parliamentary representatives and the  press of ' Melbourne ' and Sydney,  which cities were'rival claimants to  the distinction of being the new seat  of Government, the "neutral" site  at Yass-Canberra has now been surveyed and" the hoped-for great city of  the future mapped out.  ��������� Presently the Government will advertise for designs for the Parliament  buildings.- ���������  There will be -two chambers, the  House of Representatives and the  Senate. ' It is proposed that the two  buildings" should adjoin each other  after the manner of the two chambers  at Westminster. Two or three sites'  for. the Australian St. Stephen's are  now, under consideration.  Yass-Canberra is in a somewhat  remote part of New South Wales���������  almost an equal distant of about 300  miles by railway from Sydney and  Melbourne.  Critics of the' transference of the  seat of Government to Yass-Canberra  are calling it the "BuslrCapitiil" or  the "City of the Wilderness." The  Parliamentary "hub" of the Commonwealth will be no less than 900  square miles in extent. At present  the district has only a sparse and  scattered population.of farmers, fruit  growers  and  dairymen.  As it is so far distant from any  large city, dwelling places for the  members of the Senate and House of  Representatives will be erected.  The governor will occupy an impressive looking building. Other suggestions now under consideration include the construction in the heart of  the city of a vast lake which, while  providing u good water supply, would  be an ornamental feature.  Meanwhile, the selection of a suitable name is engaging the attention  of the Government. The prevalent  idea appears to lie that the new city  should be named in honor of some  man who has worked hard to advance  the interests of Australia.  . Parkes, after the lute Sir. Henry  Purkes, is one suggestion. Barton,  in honor of the first Prime Minister  of the Commonwealth, is another.  Deakin, in recognition of the great  services of the present leader of the  Opposition, who has been Prime  Minister several, times.' finds much  favor, as does also Hopetoun, after  the first governor-general. Oceana is  the latest suggestion, but there is  little hope for it.  IHE HfilO  IXDIGESTIOX    OF    A    LIFETIME  PROMPTLY   CURED    BY  '< ERUIT-A-TIVES."  Mrs. J. R.

The-spirit of Herod's sister-in-law  seems to live for ever; at any rate,  it is still pretty vigorous among the  head-hunting Dyaks of Dutch Borneo.  Hathnaveng, a tribesman, had been  persuaded by Dutch missionaries to  abandon the practice - of head-hunting. He remained true to his promise,  and for a timej led a quiet life.' Recently, however, he fell in love with  a Dyak maiden. The girl, although  returning his passion, disdained his  offer of marriage because he no longer indulged in the ancient practice of  cutting off and bringing' home the  heads of the enemies of the tribe.  Hathnaveng���������goaded by the' taunts  of the girl, who told him to dress in  women's clothes in future, as he no  longer had the -courage of a������man���������  quitted the village and remained  away quite a considerable time.  When he returned he entered his  sweetheart's hut carrying a sack on  his shoulders. He opened it, and  four human heads rolled upon the  bamboo floor. At the sight of. the  trophies the girl at once took him  back into her favor, and, flinging her  arms around his neck, embraced him  passionately. "You wanted heads,"  declared her lover; "I have brought  them. Do you not recognize them?"  Then, to her horror, she saw' they  were the heads. of her father, her  mother, her brother,! and of a young  man who was Hathnaveng's rival for  her affections. Hathnaveng was immediately seized by some of the  tribesmen, and by way of punishment  was placed in a small bamboo structure, such as is commonly used by  the Dyaks for pigs, and allowed to  starve to death.

"Promise .me," Charles says to the  little prince, "that you will take care  of your mother. And swear that you  will never let them make you King  while your brother Charles is alive."  To which the child is supposed to  reply: "I'll be torn to pieces firit."  On this dreadful night, however, Mr.  Irving only got as far as "Promise me  thnt you will take care of your mother." "I'll be tor-r-rn to pieces  fir-r-rst," was the annihilating reply.  TELKWA, B.C.  On main lineof Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, in -midst of rich  agricultural and mining district.

Publication of the census returns  for the Territory of Arizona presents opportunity for figuring out  a per capita mineral wealth that is  probably not exceeded in any part  of the world. The official figures  place the population at 204,534,  which, by-the-by, is an increase of  6G.2 per cent, inten years, and vie  already know that the productim  of copper for last year was close to  three hundred milliou pounds and  the total mineral pro luction, rn  round figures, worth 845,000,000.  Thus it is easy to arrive at the conclusion that every man, woman  and child in the uew Copper State  theoretically produces an average  of 1466 pounds of refined copper a  year, worth, at 13 cents a pound,  about $190.58, while the production, of other minerals brings the  total annual creation of new wealth  up to the reppectable total of $225  per capita. Consideration.of these  figures tends to make some of us  wouder whether Arizona or the  United States is getting the best of  a bargain by which The Flag is to  bear another star in honor of the  greatest c<<pper-producii)g territory  on earth.���������Los Angeles Mining  Review. l  " Unequalled for Domestic Use."

The result of the recent elections  in the United States proves, that  many of the people across the line  have'not taken Teddy seriously.  , The richest people in the world  today are those who have perfect  healh.   In spite of the fact that money  is the root of all evil nearly everyone is looking for it with some  kind of a spade.  A ledge in the mine is worth a  dozen in the mountains.  Man that is born of his  parent?  is "of a few days and full of micro-  lies.    He goeth to school   when   a  youngster aud gets the seat of  his  pants  paddled   for   something  Iip  didn't do until he is sick at heart.  He groweth  up like a weed in a  back yard and soon reaches the age  .when   he is composed  largely   ol  feet, freckles and an appetite for  pie.    About the time he gets too  long for short trousers and not big  enough for long ones he goeth away  to college, learneth how to monkey  with a three dollar mandolin and  play   whiskey   poker.    Ho eonu-th  home a bigger fool than ever aud  marrieth   a  sweet  young   thing  whose pa is supposed to be wealthy,  but whom he subsequently ascertained,  couldn't   buy   the   prize  rooster   at  a   country   fair.    He  worrieth along from year to year,  gradually acquiring offsprings, until . his house resembles a Sunday  school class just before Christmas.  He freteth all through tbe day and  lieth awake nights trying to figure  out how to keep himself and  nis  dependent population out of the  poor house.   Efforts are rewarded,  his daughters run off and get married and bring him home a nice  son-in-law every few days to feast  at his board.    His sons grow up  and call him goveruor and set him  back five spots every day or two.  About the ttme he has acquired  enough  lucre to  make   it   worth  while for his heirs to quarrel over,  he contracts a cold and is hurried  away before he has time to have a  talk  with  the family.    His   sons  blow in his estate on bad whiskey  and  plug hats and  his wife puts  the finishing touches to his career  by marrying the hired man.���������Kansas Exchange.
