HAWAII'S  GOATS.  They Eat Up the Mountain Forests  and Cause Floods.  The wild goat of Hawaii In recent  years became a serious menace to agriculture In various parts of the territory. Secure among the almost inaccessible cliffs of the mountains,  thousands of those nimble animals  find a congenial home, aud, although  no systematic efforts have as yet been-  inaugurated for exterminating them,  they are nevertheless extremely wary  and difficult to approach.  California and Australia have had  their scourges of rabbits, and various  western states still have their troubles- in combating prairie dogs and  gophers, but these pests injure the agriculturist directly by attacking his  growing crops, while, on the other hand,  the goats of Hawaii do tho same thing  Indirectly by ruining the mountain for-,  ests, which conserve the rainfall on  which the water for irrigation purposes Is dependent. This was not for  a long time appreciated, but of late  years, with the rapid increase in the  number of goats, it lias become very  apparent In some sections of tho  mountain districts, once heavily wooded, thero Is now scarcely any vegetation at all, due solely to the destructive feeding of the goats.  Goat hunting is a popular diversion  In some parts of the territory and as a  sport Is by no means to be despised.  Although the animals are numerous,  Jt requires some hard tramping and  climbing to get to their haunts, and  then a true aim and good eye for distance in order to have much success.  Occasionally parties are orgauized and  a week or more spent in goat shooting,  with tho result that sometimes several  hundred are slaughtered. Were it not  for the injurious characteristics of the  littlo animals the slaughter would seem  wanton In the extreme, for no value is  placed on the carcass, and ft Is usually  left where it falls. Indeed, the character of the mountains would often make  It difficult to secure the quarry after  it is shot, and it is only in case of an  especially large animal, which the  hunter may desire to secure as a trophy, that any attempt is ever made to  recover the body.  The fact that there seenw to be no  market for tho skins prevents *heir  being hunted for any other parpose  -than the sport or in order to reduce  their numbers where they have become especially troublesome. Could  some use be found for the skins, there  Is no doubt that a great number could  be secured at little cost.. The goats  are of the common, back yard, tin can  eating variety transplanted hero years  ago, and, flnding tlie conditions especially congenial, they have increased  very rapidly after breaking away from  the dominion of man, ��������� Forest and  Stream  t~-  X:  ^r  -EVERY WigK  We aro Tailoring Specialists, and, apart from the question of  economising your tailoring bills by obtaining your clothing straight  from the World's Capital and the Home'Country, it will pay you  to get in touch with us.

Signs by Which You May Know When  a Dog Is Really Mad.  'Hydrophobia is so rare and terrifying  that its symptoms and treatment are  little understood.   As a matter of fact,  the commonly accepted expression of  madness in a dog is often misleading.  The real mad dog does^not shun water, as it is said.    On the contrary,  mad dogs often rush to the water and  drink it eagerly, if they are able to  swallow. -The mad dog does not froth-  at the mouth.   It does not run amuck,  snapping  at  everything  in   its  path.  What, then, are the indications of the  mad dog?   To' those familiar with a  given dog the surest symptom and the  one which should excite closest attention  is a  distinct and  unaccountable  change iu the dog's disposition, a,staid  dog becoming excitable and a frisky  one dull.   That condition does not nec>  essarily   mean   rabies,   but  it  is  suspicious, and if in addition the dog has  trouble   in   swallowing,  as  though  It  seemed to have a bone in its throat,  beware!   That dog should be instantly  tied.up, because If it-be rabies it takes  but a  day  or  two  for  ferocious' instincts to develop".    Tbe unmistakable  evidence,   however,   of   a   dog   with  rabies   is  the- sticky,   whitish  saliva  which covers the teeth and shows on  tho drawn lips.    The eyes glare and  are red; the dog has paroxysms of running   fury,   during   which   it   barks  hoarsely, which alternate with periods  of   temporary    exhaustion. ��������� Caspar  Whitney In Outing.

After a bath he must go  straight out-jnto the garden, and there,  if possible, eat a substantial meal of  as much wholesome food as appetite  suggests.    The child   may   then ask  questions,   and   these  should   be   answered.   Then, as in tho philosophy of  the great Socrates, other subjects will  suggest themselves.

Still he can enjoy a  story against himself, and he has recently been telling7one: concerning a  lovely foreigner, one of whose verbal  slips delighted him immensely.  A very iively personage with a delightful accent, the lady made a favorable impression on the King, one of  whose chief delights it is to find some  one who can amuse him. When in  due course the bridge tables were set  the King was unwilling to lose his  charming companion and asked her  to be his partner.  "But, sir," she said, "I really don't  know how to play."  The King would take no denial, and  she "became rather embarrassed,; as  she really did not know the game.  "I assure you, sir," she repeated.  "I could not think of playing. I don't  know the, difference between a king  and a knave."  There was a short silence, and then  the lady realized what she had said  and was covered ivith confusion. The  King of course laughed heartily, and  now tolls the story with gusto.  Eye Strain  Headaches  Manitoba lady tells how headaches  disappeared with the use of Dr. A.  W.  Chase's  Nerve  Food.

Simon was  disgusted at his defeat, and to show  that he  was  really the -better  man  made and presented to the King what  came to be known as the "Petition  Crowd."   The King, however, ignore'd  this appeal. ,  The new coinage, apparently, caused no little stir, for the two immortal  diarists of that day both mention it.  "Now it was," wrote Evelyn-on March  9, 1664, . "that the fine" new .milled  coin, both of white money and  guineas, was established"; and Pepys  tells us how "There dined with us  to-day (March !) 1663) Mr. Slingsby,  of the Mint, who showed us all the  new pieces, both of gold and silver,  that_ wore made - for the King by  Blohdeau's way; and compared them  with those made for Oliver.

Our forefathers had much trouble  with the coinage. Sometimes they  could not get metal enough to coin;  Bomelimes the market value of thi>  metal used for coining was such that  men found it profitable to melt down  their money and sell it - in bulk:  sometimes ':������������������ kings, notably Henry  VIII;, debased the coinage; and, until  milling became the rule, clipping was  of Constant practice. .  ���������Silver was the sole standard until  1816, and consequently the golden  guinea was subject to market fluctuations, according to the condition, of  the silver coin. It started its history  at the value ot 20 shillings, then rose  as high as 30, and at other times  was equal to 26, 22 and 20 shillings  and sixpence.  Pepys, in 1666, quotes his goldsmith I  to the effect  "that ginnys which   1  ; bought 2,000 of not long ago that cost  'me but 181-2d change will now cost  me 22d;and but very few to be had  at  any   price."    Parliament   finally  took   the  matter  up,  and   by John  Locke's advice the guinea was fixed  in 1717, at 21 shillings, at which it-  remained until  1813, when it ceased  to be issued, and yielded  its place  to the sovereign, which, by the way  it had originally displaced.  origin of the centaur In Gredan mythology, half man and half horse.

The Cat's Pins.  Martha had tormented Dinah, her  kind old cat, for more than a half  hour without an interval of peace,  when she gave Dinah's tail such an  unmerciful pull that the poor old cat  decided that forbearance had ceased  to be a virtue, so she resorted to her  claws for the. first time in her life  when with the child. Dinah gave  Martha's little fat hand such a scratch  that the blood fairly trickled, and  she, with tears and blood streaming,  went to Dinah with all the wrath in  her voice sho could command and  said, "Give me those pins out of your  hand this minute, miss!"

For beautifying the veranda or covering the wall of a brick or stone house  "with a living coat of green which will  be a joy to every lover of nature there  is a large variety of vines which grow"  with little care ������nd are a perpetual de-  ���������igbr.  The Boston ivy and Virginia creeper,  two vines known throughout America,  cling to walls without support, and so  ire especially useful for covering walls.  The former is not as hardy as the latter, but in the middle and southern latitudes it succeeds well and forms a  beautiful mass against a wall. The Virginia creeper is perfectly hardy. It will  hide ugly stone fences,, outbuildings  nnd dead trees, transforming them into  things of beauty.  Ths rapid growing Virgin's Bower  vine is excellent for the veranda,; giving a dense shade. It presents a snowy  bank of star shaped flowers of delightful fragrance which last for several  weeks. A companion variety of clematis, coccinea, has rose colored flowers which resemble half closed rosebuds at a distance. Clematic paniculate, the Japan clematis, is one of tho  host vines, growing rapidly and presenting a snewy mass of blossoms  when in flower.  The wistaria'Is a good vine for a  trellis, but Is somewhat coarse for  most verandas, being better suited for  tho rustic house or pergola, where Its  delightful purple flowers hang In graceful profurton. The Crimson Rambler  rose Is one of tho hardiest and most  satisfactory of climbers, admirably  suited for the veranda.  fits  perfectly  because  each garment  is made to fit an  individual type of  figure..

That panama hats aro woven under  water is denied by a man who has aH  his life been engaged in tho panama  hat trade and has himself made the  hats.  Tho hats are woven in the early  morning hours, when the atmosphere  is  damp,   as tho hoat   of  tho   sun  makes the fiber brittle and unfit for  manipulation.

In London recently 8,000 men  applied for a little hospital job  worth ������4 a- week. We warn all  working men to keep away from  that camp.  Tim Lemieux Act does not seem  to be much iu favor with the men  who work. Still many working-  men will coutinue to vote for the  present government in Ottawa.  The C. P."R. machinists lost their  strike because the time was not  -propitiousTor a movement of that-  kind. It labor ..had been scarce  they would have won in a walk.  .; Jupoixtt ��������� from its past history  the Laurier government will just  need about four more years in  wliich to gobble what is left of  Canada, leaving the people to pay  the debts.  Ri-X'kxtly Earl Grey carried a  pack on his back and walked for  several miles in East Kootenay.  The earl can now delight eastern  society with tales of adventure in  the hills.

Tho country was well governed in 18% for -$42,000,000, but  now it takes $1)0,000,000 to pay  tho yearly bills, although the services supplied have not materially  increased. Smoke that before you  vote. _____  NitA.it Kimberley in South Africa  eleven thousand acres of blue land  are being constantly plowed and  harrowed in search of diamonds.  Last year the crop produced was  worth $32,000,000.' If wo had a  few farms like that in the vicinity  of Grcenwoodj it is more than  likely this paper would havo a few  bank ads sprinkled amongst its  columns.  It is strange how some people  try to save in small things, Wp  have often seen men come into a  camp who would for a time buy $10  worth of drinks a minute, and then  look all over town to find a copy  of the local paper so that they  would get partially even by not  having to buy one.  There is considerable discussion  in the Chilli wack paper over the  drink question. One writer says :  "Dram-drinking may inspire the  heart with gladness and thrill tho  nerves with delight, but it is so  dangerous, this embroidered veil  that hides the death beyond, the  flowery entrance to the path that  leads to death."' Such beautiful  language may stop the sale of high  balls in Chilliwack.  Man is a frail atom, full of��������� fear  and afraid to stand alone. That is  why he pays a priest to get him  into heaven, a doctor to get him  out of the hospital, and a lawyer  to keep him out of jail. He cannot even vote more than half the  time, unless there is something in  it. When there is nothing in it  he usually follows the precedent of  a dead past and votes the same as  his father did. Kear and greed  rule Canada.    Ix Toronto the morality department refused to suppress the sale  of the Calgary Eye Opener. That  paper is a terror to evil doors, and  not much in danger of suppression,  provided it does not discuss religion from the independent standpoint. Free discussion of religious  matters is practically prohibited in  Canada as far as the press is concerned, owing to the fact that the  church largely controls Laurier  and makes him do its bidding.  Tun election contest now on in  Canada will be decided mainly on  the record of the government. The  personality of the candidates will  not make many votes. Iu respect  to the government it is a different  story. All classes of people are  concerned in the good government  of the country. Party yells will  not settle the public debt. The  Laurier government has created a  great debt and gets the bulk.of the  profit, .whilst the people sweat to  pay the debt and get nothing.  The real aristocrats of the world  aro the writers, painters, musicians, actors and inventors. In  England those who rule in social  circles claim the authority to be  top-notchers through the accident  of birth. Recently, however, London society litis commenced to take  to its arms some of the great artists  of the world, and the chances of a  merry row. arc-iiuniinent-betwcen  King Edward and the radical  leaders of the elite, in the meantime several hundred thousand  people in Great Britain have little  chance to suffer' from indigestion  or Bright's disease.  Ix Ladysmith last week gold was  discovered while excavating for the  foundation of a new building. The  town became excited and hundreds  of people crowded around the hole  eager to catch a glimpse of the yellow metal. However no placer  claims were staked out, and as the  work on the building is proceeding  it may be taken for granted that  there will be no stampede to Lady-  smith. There may be gold underneath Ladysmith, but not enough  to tear down the town. This is  the season of the year for the finding of things^tbat will make a  boom in'the spring.  The Laurier government is almost entirely in the hands of men  who are bent upon looting the public domaiu for the benefit of themselves and relatives. Most of their  relatives have become, rich, and  vast portions of the public lauds  have passed into their hands for a  mere song.. The expense of governing Canada has become enormous, and the reign of graft, wasto  and extravagance at Ottawa is appalling to an honest man. If continued it means ruin to Canada for  years to come. It is difficult to  understand how any sane man can  vote to sustain a government as  corrupt and wasteful as we have  had in this glorious country for the  past twelve years.     -  For Sale���������Twelve Pekin Ducks.
