Thomet at  Midway on   the  25th  August,-were brought to  the  city  by.Constable Aston Monday. They  are not desperate  looking  characters, ^ but   average,   commonplace  workingnieu such as one may meet  every day  without being startled.  A representative of The Ledge had  au interview  with  the   two  men  Tuesday.    They  were   dressed  in  their digging clothes, as they were  when arrested at tlie miue of Ihe  Nicola Coal company at Merritt.  Since their arrest- they have been  treated with  the utmost  courtesy  by the  provincial  officers, and are  especially thankful  to  the  magistrate at Nicola for his encouraging  words after hearing their statement"  The charge is tho most serious oue  that could   be   preferred and the  men   were   naturally nervous   on  being accused on so grave a charge.  The magistrate gave them confidence by stating they had  nothing  to  fear if the story told by them  was true.  They claim to have left Greenwood on  the  Gth August,   riding  part of the way between  here aud  Midway with a man in a two-wheeled cart.   At Midway  they crossed  the river going over"the bridge and  taking the V., V. & E. track west.  That night they slept in  a water  tank, a common  custom  of men  on'tlie   "hylic" along   a railway  track ; common, because  it  is the  easiest way to get a cheap ride ou  a freight, or  the blind or the rods.  The only place they  left the railway was at the tunnel,  and not  knowing the length  of  the tunnel,  and nob  wishing  to he  caught by  a train in  it they walked  around.  At  iMyncaster  they  got a "hand  out" in the hotel run   by Mr. and  Mrs. Courtney, formerly of Greenwood.    Left  iMyncaster  the same  day,   Saturday,   the  iltli.

From Molson they  went to Oro-  ville,  stopping two days in  that  town.

Considerable  disappointment   was  fait when,   on   the  arrival  of  the  stage  coaches, and   train, it  was  learned that, owing to sickness and  other  unavoidable causes, a'great  many of the old till.ioums who have  nl ways taken an active,  interest in  the association since  its  inception  wpvo prevented from being present.  However, this was  not  allowed  to interfere seriously  with   thear-l  rangements.    These   old   pioneers  liave always been  used   to  accepting things as they  find   them and  making the best of every occasion.  The.  few  who   were  present  held  their    business    meeting -at   five  o'clock, elected officers for the ensuing- ypar,   admitted  new  members, made the n acess-iry  arrangements  for meetings, and passec? a  resolution of regret at the rem oval,  under   such    distressing    circumstances, of Charles  L. Thomet, an  old and esteemed  member of the  association.  Tho officers elected for the en  suing year are : F. Richter, Kere  meos, president; A. Megraw, Hedley.  secretary, and J. R. Jackson,  Midway, treasurer.  It was unanimously decided that  the next meeting be held at Fair-  view, and future meetings at places  throughout the district which the  organization covors. The banquet  given in the evening will always  furnish material for happy reflection on the part of those whose  pleasure it was to attend. The  spacious dining room was artistically decorated for the occasion,  and while its very atmosphere  seemed to breathe hospitality and  welcome, this was supplemented  by a motto, in the form of an arch  across the end wall, bsautifully  executed in letters of asparagus  fern of "Welcome Pioneers, 1S96-  190S."  The table was a picture for contemplation, and.a tribute alike to  the artistic skiii of the 'ladies and  to the, district, the orchards and  gardens of which can produce the  wealth of delicious fruits and exquisite flowers thereon displayed.  It was a revelatiou to those from  the outside of the wonderful possibilities of- this favored valley,  and the only regret expressed was  that there were not more present  to share in the enjoyment of the  occasion.  By request of the chair the old-  timers'  responses to   toasts  were  mostly of a reminiscent nature. F.  Richter,   the newly-elected president,   set the  ball rolling by narrating how. in the early days, the  Indians   had  proved   troublesome  and as one lime threatened to drive  hi::: off the property which he had  selected for his ranch, and how he  scarod them off by  placing a Jack-  o-lantern in their grave yard on a  dark  night,  frightening them   so  effectively that they afterwards returned  and   removed   even   their  dead.    Responding  to the toast of  "Horticulture" he told of his experiences 32 years ago  in bringing  in apple trees over the Hope mountains on pack  horses, and of the  many foes that beset that young  orchard,   of its   ultimate   success  and of the great boon which  the  fruit proved.  John H. East and Major Megraw  reviewed in pleasing style the development of the mining industry  fu Southern li. C, and emphasized  tlie important .part taken by the  early pioneers���������the prospectors���������  in the blazing of trails and the  opening up oi" the country. The  name of every one at the festive  board was connected with one or  more toasts and each contributed  according to his ability, in the  evening's entertainment songs by  Messrs Kerby and Campbell being  particularly, appreciated.���������Kere-  meoH Trumpet.'

It is believed that at a depth a strong  lead will be developed, work on  which will be commenced as soon  as possible.  Adjoining the Twenty-Four  Hours is the Top Notch group,  owned by George Chattaway and  partners. It has been bonded to  Reynolds & McDowell of Butte,  Mont., for the sum of $25,000.

DOINGS OF 11 TRIP  There Are Times When He May  Have to Go Hungry For a Day.  BUT DON'T HAPPEN OFTEN.  Co the Dilapidated Gentleman Says,  and He Ought to Know From Experience���������The Best Kind of Introductions to   Farm   Houses.   .  [Copyright, IMS, by T. C. McClurc]  "There are times when even the  tramp who knows his profession from  A to Z may have to go hungry for a  (lay," said tho dilapidated gentleman,  ''but that is a circumstance that won't  happen three times a year. If in a village, you can always strike n house  ' where the woman wants some wood  cut or coal brought iu or ashes taken  ^ out and is willing to set you out a  meal in exchange. About one farmer in  ten will drive you away with threats.  Some of tlie others will send you alone;  with a hand-me-down, aud others will  give you a square meal for an hour's  work.  "Tho first thing on coming to a farm  is to properly introduce yourself. That  is where so many of the profession  fail.   The sight of a great big hungry  SEWING A OASE 01-' ASSAULT AND HIGH WAT  ItOUBEHY.  tramp, sometimes as "ragged as a scarecrow, is not assuring to the women  folks. If the farmer is around tho  house he becomes suspicions at once.  If you just walk up to the kitchen and  ask for victuals you will be turned  down Ave times out of six. I prefer to  see a man about. I walk up to him,  with a smile and laugh, and say:  " 'The sheriff has given me such a  chase that I find myself hungry. If  you like to give mo a bite to eat I will  use the ax or hoe for an hour or two. I  guess they have given up tho chase  after me.'  " 'So the sheriff was after you, eh?*  he incjuires, with sudden interest.  "'Yes; had me in the county jail,  and I broke out'  "'And what had you been doing?'  " 'Nothing at all. The blunderhead  thought he recognized in nie a murderer wauted in Michigan and insisted  on locking me up. It beats all how  stupid some officers are. That Michigan murderer is short, red headed and  lame, and you can see for yourself  that I don't answer the description.'  "That farmer doesn't want any work  out of me. lie wants talk. The wife  sots out a good dinner, and then they  keep me talking about murders aud  jail breaking for Ihe next two hours.  Of course I lie to them, but that's part  of my busiuess, the same as selling dry  goods and clothing.  Approaching a Victim.  "If I don't work thc jail racket I approach the man with a story about a  farmhouse nine or ten miles away being robbed the night before and warn  him to be on tho lookout To further  awaken his interest I relate that I wa  sleeping in the barn that night and  that it was my being awakened and  rushing out that sent the robbers off.  He wants to hear ail the particulars,  and he knows that I will talk bettej  after a feed. Nine times out of ten I  am asked to sleep in the bam.that  night and stay to breakfast  "Now and then my thrilling tale recoils on-me. Two yehrs ago, while  making a farewell tour of Pennsylvania, I told a farmer of lying secreted  in the bushes and seeing a case of assault and highway robbery. I laid it  , fourteen miles away, and while I was  sleeping in his barn that night he  sneaked away and gave the story to a  constable. The next morning I was arrested and taken to the county jail,  and thc sheriff began an investigation.  I had to own up that I was a liar, but  the officer was a man with no humor in  his makeup, and he held me In Jail for  -a week and then booted me out of  town.  "I have always mado It a rule to get  hold of newspapers having accounts of  great robberies or murders. They are  the best kind of Introductions to farmhouses. I have the paper In my hand  and ask them to read the marked ar-  , tide. They read and aro then ready  to ask a hundred questions.  "One summer I traveled -100 miles In  Connecticut on the strength of a clipping from n New York newspaper.   It  was about a gang of Italians abducting  a boy and a big reward being offered  for him.   In submitting the clippiug I  affected a mystery and asked the par  ties not to mention that I had been in  the   neighborhood.

It's a mean trick, but  I feel no more shame over -it than a  lawyer does when ho clears a horse  thief he knows to be guilty. If I can  get a chance to sit down with a farmer  or his wife for un hour I can lcafn the  names and all about the people for several miles around. It would astonish  you to know how many families have  a missing sou. The boy has run away  years ago and not been heard from  since. Well, what's the matter with  my being the long lost, at least while  I can get .a square meal?  "Half a dozeu times I have been  taken for the long lost without a word  on my part. Lhavo had a woman come  running clown to tho gate and a man  come running from the fields, and they  didn't make up their minds about me  until they had set out the best in the  house. In two cases In my career I  filled the bill so well that I had to run  away. The trouble in playing the  game is that the long lost has returned  or that you are years older than he  would be.

Are Chaucer, Spenser, Milton, Byron  - and Shakespeare Bores?  "We had the notion of doing something of the kind." the Easy Chair  confessed when requested to furnish  a list of the hundred best authors,  "but we could uot think of more than  ten or a dozen really first rate authors, and if we had begun to compile a list of the best authors we  should have had to leave out most of  their works. Nearly all the classics  would have gone by the board. What  havoc we should have made with the  British poets! The Elizabethan dramatists would mostly have fallen under  the ban of our negation to a play if  not to a man. Chaucer, but for a few  poems, is impossible; Spenser's poetry  is generally duller than presidential  messages; Milton is a trial of the spirit  in three-fourths of his verse; Wads-  worth is only not so bad as Byron,  who thought him so much worse;  Shakespeare himself when he is reverently supposed not to be Shakespeare  is reading the martyrs; Dante's science  aud politics outweigh his poetry a  thousandfold, and so on through'the  whole catalogue."-William Dean How-  ells in Harper's Magazine.  BROKEN IN HEALTH.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Restored  Strength After Medical Treatment Had Failed.  "I can truthfully say Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills did' for me what one of the  best doctors in Halifax failed to do  ���������restored my health." This strong  statement is made by Mr. Wm. J.  Weaver, 172 Argyle St., Halifax. Mr.  Weaver adds:���������"A few years ago I  took employment in a largo factory  as fireman. I -knew the work would  be hard, and friends told me I would  never stand it, but as I was a strong  man, weighing 180 pounds, I laughed  at the idea of not being ablo to do  the work. Anyhow I started and  found the. job a hard one indeed.  There were a number of firemen employed and men were taking and  quitting the job every few days. I  kept at the work for two years and  during that time lost 50 pounds  weight, and ,was a broken down man.  I could not take any meals and often took my dinner back home with  me without touching it. When I  would be working on the night shift  t could not sleep in the day time, and  this added to my trouble. Finally I  became a total wreck and had to quit  the work. I could hardly drag myself about, and yet had become so  nervous that I could not sit still and  would walk about the house until I  was ready to drop. The doctor came  to see me every day, and changed the  medicine time nnd again, but it did  mo no good. Finally he wanted me  to go to the hospital, and at this stage  PEN'S GRACIOUS ACT  VISITS  DYING   GIRL  IN   LONDON'  "      HOME FOR INCURABLES.      ,  Was Deeply Moved by Patient's Pathetic Appeal���������Martha Massey Had  Long Wished to See Her Majesty-  Royal Solicitude For Poor Sufferers  ���������Beautiful Gifts of Flowers Expressed   Queen's  Sympathy*,  Tho officials of St. Luke's House,  Bayswator, and one of the inmates,  recently had a pleasantrsurprise, in a  totally unexpected visit from the  Queen (who is the patroness of the institution) and Princess Victoria.  The visit was the outcom'e of o  letter which the Queen a few clays  ago' received from Martha Massey, one  of the inmates of the house (which is  for the reception of patients in the  last stages of consumption). In this  letter the poor girl said how much she  should like to see her Majesty before  she took her proposed long trip  abroad. The writer, in her own  simple phraseology, explained that  she had been unable to see the Queen  when driving through London or visiting the district, owing to her illness.  Her only satisfaction was what thc  nurses told her, and what she was  able to glean from thc newspapers.  Would her Majesty gratify her djing  desire by coming to see her , before  going abroad, because she was afraid  she   would   not   be   living   when   her  .%.  1^1  As to Rare Beef.  "It is a mistake," said Otto E.  Schaar, tho president of the New York  Waiters' club, "to think that an Englishman always wants his beef excessively rare. As a matter of fact, thc  English like their beef better done  than we do. I once saw a waiter,"  he continued, "serve an English duko  with a cut of very, very rare sirloin.  The duke looked closely at the slice of  bright red meat ��������� Then ho said,  'Waiter, just send for the butcher,  will you?' 'The butcher, sir?' the  waiter stammered. 'Yes,' said the  duko.

Her Majesty, who was carrying a  beautiful bouquet of orchids, lilies-of-  the-valley, carnations, and asparagus  fern, explained her mission to Miss  Brookc-Aldcr, and was at once conducted to the ward in which Miss  Martha Massey was lying.  ^It was pathetic to see the mingled  surprise and joy on thc face of the  dying girl when she realized that he?  cherished desire was granted, "and  that it wa.s roally the Queen who stood  by her bedside.

Sixty priests have been in attendance at the ceremonials and Rev.  Father Brie. C.S.S.R., St. Patrick's  Church, delivered four sermons daily.  Acchbishep McKvay also addressed  the gathering.

When bidding  farewell to tho matron in the. hall her  Majesty heard someone couching, and  asked. "Who is that, coughing?"  Having been informed that it was  Miss Mnssey. the Queen ordered some  cough lozenges to bo brought from  the. motor-cr. nnd. returning to the  bedside of the poor girl, placed one  of the lozenges in her mouth, instructing her to suck it slowly. Her Majesty then handed a number of the lozenges to the n-Wron. remiosting her  to give them to the girl when she. was  taken with severe fits of coughing,  and then left, thc house.

After the  mother's death, Martha, when only  fourteen, had to <jo to work in a factory, earning a few shillines per week.  The girl was always frail, and undoubtedly took the germ of consumption when nursin<r her mother.  Finally, her fnfhnr was stricken with  consumption, and Martha spenred his  admission to the very institution  where' she is now lyine. There her  parent died, and some time ago Martha was admitted.

A Tangle of Wild Thoughts Combined  With Vague Notions of"1 Time and  Space���������The Dreamy Doze, the Rescue and the Knife In His ESack.   ,  Standing on a chair near the.deck  rail of an ocean liner, a sudden lurch  of the vessel flung me into the Atlantic.  Instinctively as I went over I held my  arms out for the dive,, and while I was  still falling I heard the cry ring out,  "Man .overboard!"  Down, down I.sank, for the fall was  from a considerable height' Being able  to swim a little, I was spared the first  mental agony experienced by the non-  swimmer who unexpectedly finds toiin-  eelf in deep water. The surprise  caused by the suddenness-of the fall  filled my brain, but as I-struggled to  regain the surface, my lungs almost  bursting, tho horrible thought of .the  propeller churning out its 100 revolutions a minute flashed upon me.  Should I be mangled beyond recognition 3d a second? Oh, for another year's  sweet life! Would my leg be cut clean  off or���������  I could see the sky again,''and I took  a great breath of fresh air, though sick  with fear. Then I saw the steamer  had passed. I was spared mutilation  to dio slowly by drowning. " -  How rapidly the steamer was vanish"  ing! I could-1 catch a glimpse of It  when a green wave lifted me high "In  the water.- I'would only be able to  swim for ten minutes���������ten little minutes!���������though I was still in the prime  of life. Surely that cry as I fell would  have roused somebody to action! And  yet 1 was alone in the Atlantic, with  possibly two miles of water between  me and the bottom.  I looked round anxiously to see  whether a lifebuoy had been thrown.,  There was nothing in sight but a wide  waste of water and the fast disappearing steamer.  My arms were growing heavy. All I  tried to do was to keep my head above  water, but I seemed to have been doing that for an hour. My legs, too,*  were refusing to bend. The end could  not be far away.  My arras must both be broken, for  they would hardly move," and they  ached terribly. What a long time a  man could Weep afloat! I was vaguely  glad I could not swim very well, because it would have meant waiting for  the,end such a long time. It made one  drowsy.  Another wave lifted me up, 'and-1  saw the steamer had changed Its position. It must be going "back to England to tell them at homo what had  happened to me. How soothing the  sea was! If only I could stop trying to  work my arms that aching pain in  them would cease aud I might go to  sleep.  Sometimes when I saw the ship,  which never seemed to get any farther  away now, I remembered I was fight;  Ing for another minute's life. It had  been harder at first, but now the sea  lulled me iuto happiness.  What on earth were they playing at  on the steamer? I had nearly caught it  up again, only somehow I had got iu  front of ft It grew bigger quickly,  nnd it was coming straight on.

It was getting dark and ever so  much colder iban it was last night.  The steward must give me an extra  blanket  Why was everything so hazy and the  room stuffy? I could hardly breathe.  And yet It didn't matter. Nothing'  mattered, but I wished dreamily that  some one would stop digging a knife  Into my back, for I was just dropping  off to sleep nicely.  *******  Next day I found the '.'knife" had  been the point of a boat hook with  which they picked me up as I came to  the surface.

' Sir Henry'Alfred Pitman, the oldest physician in thc United Kingdom,,  has-just celebrated the 100th anniver-'  sary of his birthday.  Sir Henry was born on July 1,  1808, became a B.A. of Cambridge in!  1831, six years before Queen Victoria-  came to' the throne, was M.D. ia  1841,. before King Edward was born,  ���������and was physician to- St. George's  Hospital from 1857���������the year of the  Indian Mutiny���������to 1866, and is still  senior consulting- physician to tha  hospital,, although for a good many  years he has been unable to render  ���������active service.       ^ ' ,  From 1858 to 1889 Sir Henry was!  Registrar of the Royal College of  Physicians, in Pall ��������� Mall East, and  when he retired in thatyear the college honored him with the title of  Emo/itus Registrar, and a pension of  "the same amount as his salary.  Since then the aged physician has  lived quietly at his home, in Byculluh  Park,_ Enfield, happy in the companionship of his wife, whom he married  fifty-six years ��������� ago.  Until a few years ago, Sir Henry  was a well-known figure about the  country roads of Enfield, for all his  life he was a great walkerj and he  kept up the practice of walking as  much as possible, until a few years  ago he was knocked down by a  vehicle. ���������   ���������  Sir Henry Pitman is a tall, dignified man, with fine features, somewhat resembling those of Mr.' Gladstone in' his last years, with white  hair, white side-whiskers, and a  clean-shaven upper lip and chin.  His sight is now failing, and die is  rather deaf, but otherwise he has  good health, and is able to get about  a little, walking with a slight stoop.  He is cheerful, and talks with tha  robust voice of a man only half his  age. r , The ��������� birthday was celebrated  with complete privacy, but there were  two circumstances which were of special interest.  - Among the first of various messages  of congratulation which the centenarian received was a long and kindly  telegram from King Edward, wishing  Sir Henry and his wife every happiness'in the days still to come.  The other circumstances, which  also gave great gratification to the  venerable physician, was a visit from  a deputation of members of the  Royal College of Physicians.  Do Exhibitions Pay?  Tho Franco-British is by far the  biggest exhibition seen in London for  many years past. Buildings alone  have cost .$2,250,000. The- colonics  have spent over $l,500,000on exhibits,  an immense sum of money has been  laid-out in digging th������ great lagoon,  in making four miles of railway, fifteen miles of roads and walks, laying out thirty miles of drains, and  installing over half a million electric'  lights.  It is safe to say that fully ton million dollars were spent in transforming these 140 acres of wilderness into *  a pleasant paradise before the gates  ���������were opened. London has only had  one loss. The exhibition of 1862, of  which the balance-sheet showed a deficit. The loss, however, was only  about $50,000. The first great International Paris Exhibition of 1867  showed a profit of $545,000, but that  of 1878 was a terrible fiasco from a  financial point of view. The management had to bewail the loss of over  six million dollars. Over 48,000,000  people visited the Paris Exhibition  of 1900, yet there was a loss of $200,-  000. r Chicago made a profit of $1,405,-  000 on her tremendous international  show of 1893. Thc heaviest loss of  any great exhibition occurred at Vienna in 1873.  ��������� The promoters found themselves  ten million dollars out of pocket. If  even one"million people outside London visit thc Franco-British Exhibition it is safe to say that London,  as a whole, will be at least fifteen  million dollars the richer.

Do not let it be said of your community that you have let your editor's  work go unappreciated. Use his paper,  Make 'him prosperous and yourself  rich doing it. If you have foolish  ideas about the non-productiveness of  newspaper advertising, throw them  off and try it out. One. try will  prove "nothing. 'If it is successful, so  much the better, but the constant use  of the paper in an intelligent manner  will produce the results. If your  advertisements do not pay, it is because you do not provide the right  kind of copy. In almost every case  the newspaperman knows how to' set  your ad. in an attractive ananner, but  he is not to blame if you furnish him  poor copy.  The best friend any business man in  the world has, next to his wife, is the  local, newspaper, and if he doesn't got  full value for this friendship it is his  fault, not the editor's. The editor of  tlie average so-called country paper  has done more to upbuild his town  and the retailers in it than all other  influences combined, .and it also follows that as an almost unbroken rule  he is the least appreciated person in  liis  community.  v Cut loose from this narrow, selfish  way of doing things. Look to your  own interests by helping the local  newspaper. It is a veritable gold  mine, all you have to do is to reach  out for the nuggets. Remember that  the editor has to eat and wear clothes  the same as you do and what; he sells  is just as necessary to life and prosperity as your;merchandise.���������-Ex..

A  Gallant  Commander.  Admiral Sir Gerard Noel, Commander-in-Chief at the Nore, who received thc King and Queen at Port  Victoria, on Their Majesties' return  from Russia, has had some stirring  times, but his indomitable pluck and  skill always land him on top. One  of his worst experiences was at the  time of the collision between the  Victoria and the Camperdown. On  the ill-fated day Admiral Noel, in  the Nile, was following the Victoria,  while the Edinburgh, commanded by  Admiral Brackenbury, was following  the Camperdown. Directly the fatal  order was given, both grasped the  situation, and, by combination of  skill, and what amounted virtually  to disobedience of their impossible  instructions, contrived to avert a  double disaster. When the Turkish  troop joining the mob at Candia slew  a hundred British soldiers and a  thousand .Christian residents, and pillaged from houses, Sir Gerard, the  son of a country clergyman, bombarded the town and then presented an ultimatum. Within forty-eight hours ho  had the ringleaders of the massacre  handed over, and the ramparts and  forts commanding the town surrendered.  It is calculated that 4,000 persons  make a living in London by begging,  and that their average income  amounts to about 30s. a week, or over  ������300,000 a year. Last year 1,921 persons were arrested for begging in the  streets, of whom more than 1,500  were sentenced to terms of imprisonment varying from one week to three  months. Many of these objects of  charity were found in possession of  sums of money and even of bank  books showing very handsome deposits. ,  How the Lacteal Fluid Is Reduced to  '   a Powder.  It Is a well recognized fact that the  curse of milk Is water. This is not  said facetiously, for we now allude  only to the water which it contains as  It comes from the cow. This 'water,  however, is 87 per cent of the bulk, so  that It can be seen at once that cow's  milk must be considered a highly diluted and therefore correspondingly  nnnutrltious food.  The fundamental idea of dry milk Is  , simply to remove this 87 per cent of  water. The process by which ��������� this is  accomplished ia very simple. The milk  as soon as posihle after it comes from  the cow���������in most cases an hour or two  ���������is passed without preliminary,treatment, physical or chemical, except  straining, over polished steel.rollers In  a thin sheet. The rollers are heated to  a temperature of 240 degrees l<\, and  the milk remains on. them only about  two and one-lialf seconds. It comes  off the roller.5; a dry powder, containing less moisture- than flour, only 5 or 6  per*cent. It is tlieu packed In boxes  or barrels and can be shipped far or"  near, as required. Its chemical composition has been unchanged, and it  will now keep for an indetinite period,  or until the readdition of water. I  myself have drunk milk more than  two years old.  In the first place, all germs are killed  by the temperature of 240 degrees to  wliich the milk is subjected. The milk  Itself does not suffer any chemical  change, as in thc case of sterilization,  on account of the short space of time  it is subjected to this heat, only two  and one-half seconds Instead of twenty  or thirty minutes. Secondly, bacteria  develop only In the presence of moisture. It has been ascertained that  there must be 15 per cent moisture for  the propagation of germs. Now, as  dry milk contains only 0 per cent  moisture, any germs which "may subsequently get into the powder cannot develop; hence the milk keeps indefinitely or until water is again added. We  have therefore in dry milk a food  eight times as nutritious as ordinary  milk (n proportion to its weight and  which is absolutely free from bacteria*-  and will remain so.���������A. C.

These Were the Precursors ofthe Brilliant Thoroughfares of'Today���������The  Tax on Chimneys That Gave New  Orleans Its First Public Lamps.  ' To ono walking abroad at Dight in  New York or any other American city,  traversing highways made as light as  day by artificial illumination, it seems  beyond the realms of the possible to  "believe that only within the last hundred" years street. lighting has come  into general use and that not until tbe  introduction of gas has it been enjoyed  on an extensive scale and sufficient  light been obtained to make outdoor  walking after dark anything but a disagreeable experience. Yet such are the  facts. The age of light in city illumination began practically at the same  time that tbe age of light in popular  government dawned���������with the American Revolution.  At first glance there Is apparently  no connection between popular government and street lighting, but closo  reading of history shows the relation  to have been intimate. The American  Revolution gave freedom to the common people and made all men equal  before the law. Before that era privileged classes held sway, and the common people were deprived of many  rights. Among them was tbe right to  walk the streets at night When curfew rang all except the privileged  classes were obliged to stay indoors,  and as theprlvileged always had plenty of slaves or other servants to carry  torches or lanterns for them when  they were called -abroad at night the  need for street lighting was not felt  at least by the ruling classes. The demand for street lighting was met first  by lanterns burning tallow candles,  then by lamps fed with fish or vegetable oils. These gave place to kerosene  oil lamps on the discovery of petroleum, and they in turn to gas.  The history of the United States  shows that in only a few of the large  cities was any attempt mado to light  the streets prior to the Revolution. In  New York, Boston and Philadelphia a  few open flame oil lamps were maintained at the public expense in the  principal thoroughfares, but in the  majority.of towns and in the cities outside of the principal streets night wayfarers either carried lanterns or had  their way lighted by linkboys bearing  torches. New Orleans, ono of tho oldest cities in America, depended upon  lanterns and linkboys entirely until  1792", when the Spanish governor,  Baron Carondclct, inaugurated a crudt  system of street lighting. Louisiana,  it will bo remembered, was still a  Spanish province when the United  States gained its independence and did  not come into the Union till some years  later. A writer in the New Orleans  Picayune recalls.the interesting fact  of Carondelet's innovation in that city.  One of the new governor's first suggestions to tbe cabiido, or council, was  to provide street lamps and watchmen  ���������tbe police of those days���������to protect  the lives of citizens venturing out aftei  nightfall. The suggestion was approved, but the question of raising monej  to pay for tho lamps and oil and th<!  wages of the watchmen proved a seri  ous problem. The yearly revenue oi  the city of New Orleans in those days  did not exceed $7,000, aud none of il  could be spared for such a luxury as  street lightiug. Baron Carondelet, how  ever, proved himself a financier as wcli  as a progressive governor. lie decided  that every householder who could af  ford a chimney on his house could afford to pay something toward lighting  the streets. At his suggestion tbe cabiido levied a tax of $1.12y& on every chimney in the city, and this supplied the  funds which gave the Louisiana metropolis its first street tamps.  This system of street lighting prevailed in New Orleans and other American  cities far iuto tho nineteenth century.  Many men now living can recall the  lamplighters of tho old oil lamp days,  and in some villages to this day oil or  gasoline lamps are as yet the only  means of street lighting. It has been  icmarked often that If our Revolutionary sires could revisit this country today they would be frightened at our  big cities, tall buildings, the steam engine, telegraph, telephone and other  modern inventions. It is doubtful  whether the turning of night into day  by modern methods of street lighting  would not impress them more. No  sharper contrast could be provided than  the dark, rogue' infested lane known  as the Broad Way in Washington's  time and the gorgeous glitter of the  same thoroughfare today in that part  known as the Great White Way.  Instead of inky darkness, a glare  brighter than noonday; instead of narrow footpaths and muddy highway,  broad stone promenades and smooth asphalt pavements; Instead of the sedan  chair and Its linkboys, the automobile  and its searchlight; Instead of the lonely watchman with his solemn "All's  well," throngs of gayly dressed, merry  men and women seeking tho theaters  and restaurants. It would Indeed appear like nnolher world to the men  used to lanterns, wax caudles and thc  curfew.

It seems strange  that a soil which can do so much for  wheat can not make as good a job of  a tree. But wheat, you must remember, is a brief summer plant, and  trees have to live through tlie winter.  The experimental farm at Brandon  shows what can be done with prairie  trees. The small hardy'varieties, Siberian firs and such, do remarkably  well, and the soft maple thrives famously. The west is waking up to tho .  necessity of planting trees, and the interior department at Ottawa, which,  handled only fifty-four applications  for nursery stock in 1901, this year  handled 3,206. Two million trees were  distributed. In seven, years 11,000,000  have been set out. Eleven million  trees will do much to gladden ther  bareness of the prairies. A tree, big  or little, is a thing of beauty, and con-"'  sidering the great age some of them  reach, almost a joy forever. Its shade '  is kind to all. With its feet firm set  on earth and its head pushing-up to  tho Giver of light, it is a standing lesson to the man who sits under it.  The winds choose it for their whispers  and soft secrets, and it is the clearinghouse for the gossip oi birds. To  plant a tree is a small trouble. It  grows while you sleep. Eleven million trees will ease many heartaches.  They will look in at the windows and  back doors, and the prairies will not  become so lonesome for the women  and homesickness will disappear, and  eyes that were used to trees and have  been yearning for them ever since  they left the hedgerows of Old England will forget to be sad when they  have these old friends around them  again.���������Collier's   Weekly.

Private property, in the shape in  which we know it today, was chiefly  formed by the gradual disentanglemen'.  of the separate rights of individuals  from the blended rights of a community. -There is'every reason for believ-*  Ing that property once belonged not to  Individuals or even the isolated families, but to the patriarchal society as  ft whole. In other words, property  was at first communistic rather than  personal. i  Needed Airing.  "What's the matter with you?" demanded Borem hotly. "I've got a right  to air my opinions, haven't I?"
