The work in question, which includes the establishment of the fact  that no less than four islands or  groups of islands shown on all Admiralty charts do not exist, was carried out under conditions of great difficulty, as will be realized when it is  stated that thc Nimrod had to search  for these islands in very rougli seas  and when there, were 16 hours daily  of absolute darkness.

From  time to time during the dinner hour  Mr. Bowser sighed wearily and rolled  up his eyes and picked at his food as  If some great sorrow was gnawing at  his heartstrings. He had walked up  and down the sitting room ten minutes before he turned on Mrs. Bowser  with:      C  "I have been thinking things over  and have decided It is time for me to  leave the house. I seem to be more  of a cheap boarder here than anything  else, and I am tired of tbe position."  "What nonsense'. If there is a husband in the world that gets more attention than you do I should like to  see ' him. Cheap boarder, indeed!  What has happened today? What do  you want to And mult with?"  "Will you look at this necktie?" he  asked ns his band went up to it.  "Will you just cast your eyes on the  old rag I've been wearing around my  'neck all dny?"  "Yes. that tie Is ail of a year old.  It Is frayed and wrinkled, and there  are about sixteen different paint spots  on It. it was in the rag bag, and you  hunted It out this morning and put It  ou.    W'hiit else?"  Calls Attention to Defect*.  "It's no use to say anything, but  look nt this hole In uiy shoe. Did you  ever before see a respectable man  wearing a shoe like that? Tcu million  people have looked nt that yawning  hole today nnd wondered what sort  of wife I had nt home."  "Ten million people haven't done  any such thing!" sharply replied M������*a.  Uowser. "In the first place the bole.  Is hardly large enough to be seen, and  in the next it was your business to  hnve hnd It patched. No wife goes  around with her eyes on her hus-  band's feet. He Is supposed to know  when they need cobbling."  "Womnn. do you know who I am'/"  nhouted Mr. Bowser as he drew himself up.  "Y.-'s, I think I know."  "Then tell me how on earth this rip  cnine In my coat!    Here It is, under  the arm. and the whole town hns been  grinning nt If all dny long.

K. Davis,  left Sydney on May 8, and, in accordance with Lieut. Shackleton's instructions, proceeded south in order  to visit Macquarie Island and search  for certain charted groups of islands,  the actual existancc of which was  doubtful.  On May 18, in fine, clear weather,  the vessel passed over thc position assigned to Royal Society Island with  no land in sight. A sounding was  taken in the neighborhood, and bottom reached with 2,430 fathoms of  line. Capt. Davis then stood cast and  then south, but saw no signs of land  in the vicinity. After satisfying himself that the island did not exist, he  proceeded to Macquarie Island in order to make zoological collections. He  encountered heavy gales, and reached  the island on May 2G. Mncqu.*rio Island, the southernmost of the off-lying  islands of New Zealand, lies 545 miles  southwest of Stewart Island, and was  j discovered in the early part of the  last century by a colonial sealing vessel. It is 21 miles long and five miles  broad, and is the home of countless1  myriads of penguins, sea birds and  seals,  A visit was paid to the southeast  point of the island and some specimens collected, and then the Nimrod  proceeded along the coast northwards.  As she drew near Nugget Point, from  which a reef of rocks extends for some  distance seawards, two huts were seen  on the shore and also the wreck of  a vessel high and dry on the beach.  In his report, which is just to hand.  Capt. Davis says: "Suddenly, to our  surprise, a column of smoke rose from  the smaller of the two huts. As we  had heard nothing of anyone living  on the island, this was extraordinary.  Presently, with the glasses, we could  make out the figure of a man standing at the door of the smaller of the  huts watching our approach. We came  to anchor, and the boat was loweied  and headed for the shore. Thc man,  who had been watching us from the  hut, now walked down to the beach,  aaccompanied by two little dogs.  There was a heavy surf, but our Crusoe-like friend, after pointing out thc  best landing-place, walked into the  water and assisted in beaching tlie  boat.  We soon ascertained that his name  was Wm. McKibben, and that he had  been a member of a party which had  visited the island in the previous season in order to obtain seal and penguin oil.  order llii-ee innnihs ago and paid the  tailor SO.-��������� Have they shrunk or faded ?"  "No. but they bag at the knees, and  where can you find any creases? They  look like meal bans drawn, over hitch  Ing posts and yet you let me wear  them around nnd don't sny a word. No  wonder the gamins cry out to each  other to got on to my legs!"  "But do I wear your trousers?" pro  tested Mrs. Bowser. "If they bag nl  the knees and the creases have vanished you should take I hem to the  tailor. I have never pressed a pair  yet, and I don't think I could mnke a  good Job of It, but If you say so 1  will try."  ���������'I do not ask your assistance.   I will  do It myself.   Just get your nose intoa-  novel and leave me to do your work  for you."  Efforts at Pressing a Failure.  There was no more to be said on  Mr. Bowser's parr. He went down  to the kitchen and put a flatiron on  the stove, and by the time he had  changed it was ready for him. He  had itrnd no experience as a pressor,  but he went ahead with the greatest  confidence. After he had pulled and  hauled at the trousers for ten mi nines  to get the "baggy" out he laid them  ou the table and applied the hot iron  to make tbe creases. It so happened  at this moment that a fight between  cats began in the back yard, and ho  left his iron to rush out and annihilate  the disturbers. He was looking on and  betting his coin on a one eared feline  when Mrs. Bowser called to him from  a window above:  "I smell burning cloth.   You'd better  go in aud see to your trousers."  It was time. Indeed, it was past  time. The hot iron had scorched and  charred and shriveled until little was  left of those nine dollar trousers but  buttons and buckles. Slowly and cure-  fully Mr. Bowser gathered up the remains. Slowly and with dignity he  heaved the still hot iron out of the  back door and went upstairs. He  paused a moment in the doorway to  transfix Mrs. Bowser with a glare,  and then he held up the remnants and  hoarsely whispered:  "Woman, behold your work!"  "1 thought something was burning,"  she replied, "but what have 1 to do  with it? You let them burn while you  were looking at the cats."  "Not a  word  more,  woman���������not a  word'.

The remaikable heroism of an English missionary in Nigi-riu is described in the siory of tli!* uisastrous at-  U.ck- on a Ivntisli force, when Lieut.  Vunrencn, who wi.s in charge, and  eleven poiievmen were i*iile<J, while  the doctor wus wounded.  The first news of the disaster' came  to Minna; a place on the line of the  Beio Kano Railway, about thirty  miles from the scene of the occurrence, in a hurriedly written message  from  the wounded doctor at Kuta.  Rev. W. P. Low, who has for some  /ears bsen working among tho Guaris,  happened to be at Minna when the  news came in. He instantly volunteered to go-to Kuta to render any  aid possible- to the survivors, and also to use his influence with the  people.  Leaving-behind all his baggage and  iiervants, he started off on his bicycle  at ten minutes' notice, cramming, a  lew biscuits in his pockets and borrowing a revolvei from Captain Orr,  the Resident at Minna.  Mr. Low rode hard all night. A  short distance out from Minna he  was overtaken by a tornado of great  severity, and was compelled to exchange his bicyle for a horse. He  became completely exhausted, and  shortly before reaching Kuta fell off  his horse, which bolted, leaving him  severely  bruised.  On reaching Kuta, nt three the next  morning, he found that the survivors  of the force had come in, having baen  pursued by the Guari people, from  whom they had to hide in the bush,  Mr. Low spent twelve hours in  Kuta, and having assured himself of  the loyalty of the townspeople, resumed his journey to the coast. Picking up a "construction train on the  way back, he just caught his, steamer, but was nearly drowned in a native canoe when going down the  Niger.  He met a punitive force under Maj.  Williams, consisting of 150 men, with  a Maxim, on its way to .the scene of  the ambush.  The punitive expedition had some  stiff fighting, but they inflicted severe  punishment on the Guaris and burnt  their town. There were no losses on  the'-British side.  Rev. Walter Percival Low is a missionary of the Church Missionary Society. He was sent out to Africa in  IS03. He is a young man, and was  ordained in 1901.  Do You Realise the Danger oi a  DEATH OFTEN LURKS IN A CUT.  /  YOU see this danger illustrated in the case of Mr.'  W. C. Edwards, a well-known Friendly Society  leader, of Peter Street, Toronto.   He cut one of his  fingers with a piece of glass, and instead of applying  Zam-Buk to prevent blood poison and to heal it, he neglected  the cut, and blood poison followed.   He says:���������"The blood-  poison from the finger spread up my hand and arm and caused !  me terrible agony.   After two months' treatment the doctor said -  there was no cure, and amputation would have to take place.if I ���������>{  intended to save my arm.   I left that doctor and consulted another.  After a few weeks' treatment, he also told me that operation would  be necessary.   He said the bone had become diseased and the finger  would have to be opened so that the bone could be scraped. I went away to consider when  I would have the operation performed and met a friend who advised me to try Zam-Buk.  " That night I bathed the wound and put on some Zam-Buk. I got a little sleep -for the  first time for many nights. In the morning the wound began to bleed instead of the foul discharging as in the past. This was a Wealthy sign so I went on with tbe Zam-Buk. Well, to  cut a long story short, in a few days I put away the sling, and in a few weeks the finger was  heale.| completely. To-day that finger is as sound as a bell and I owe it to Zam-Buk. I  spent over ������20 in doctors fees and when  I think  how  Zam-Buk at s^ch a trifling cost saved me from amputation        WHAT   ZAM-BUK   CURESa  I am very grateful for the balm I can tell you.".

Tomorrow we will consult our   den a few days ago, will not readily  forget  the first  performance,    which  took place at the San Carlo Theatre,  Naples, some time ago.   Vesuvius was  in eruption at the time, and the theatre contained comparatively few spectators,  who were half panic-stricken.  During the performance the roofs of  some  buildings near the theatre fell  in, and the lava dust, which got into  the theatre, nearly choked and blinded  both    listeners,  and    performers.  Next day the theatre was closed by  order of the municipality.   The baron  has been a musician all his life.    At  five he was able to improvise on the  piano, and when quite a young man  he   wrote  a great  number  of songs.  He is an active partner in one of the  great banking houses of London, and,  although  a naturalized   Englishman,  his family history is somewhat curious.

It cost his father nothing, for the simple reason that  he attended a free school.    But   the  mathematics were taught by masters  who  had   never  studied the  subject.  "Consequently,"   says   the     bishop,  "when I could not understand a rule  I went to the master and asked him  to explain -it to me, and I remember  to this day how he put on his black  cap and his blackest frown, and said,  'Can   Knox   read?'    I   trem>led   and  said,     'Yes,  sir.'    'Then,'  said    the  master,   'let him  read  the  rule.'    I  proceeded   to  read  it  aloud    to    the  whole class, and then he said, 'Let  Knox go and do the rule.'

SCOTT A BOWNE  120 Wellington St.. Watt. Toronto, Ont.  Canadian  National- Game   Is Spread*  . ing All Over the World.  Lacrosse is probably the most exciting game  known   to   the   athletic  world.   Although only 45 years of age  as.a   white   man's-- pastime,��������� it  has  nevertheless been' played by the Indians for many years: In its old form  many  Indians  took  part,  and   with  two curious looking sticks carried by  each player the game moved fast over  the red man's playground.   For many  years it was entirely unknown .to the  white man.    The late Dr. W, George  Beers, of Montreal, who is known as  ��������� the father of lacrosse in Canada, took  hold of the game some 40 years ago  and, reduced  it  to' the middle -stages  ��������� of perfection, which stamped it as the  . premier   of   outdoor  .games.    Clubs  began   lo   spring   up . in   Montreal,  i Caughnawaga,    Cornwall,    St.   Regis  ! and  Ottawa,  and  these  places   were  ' pioneers in establishing the popular-'  ' ity of the game".    Then the   city   of  ; Toronto fell into line.'  In those days  ' the Indian  was' the peer, if not the  , superior, of   the  white   man.    Upon  ',' the visit of the Prince of Wales, now  King Edward, to Canada, a   lacrosse  game was one of the principal sporting events on   the   program   in   his  honor,   and    he   thoroughly   enjoyed  witnessing the combat   between   the  redskins and  the pale-faces,   as   the  whites are called   by the   red   men,  Soon after this   the game   began to  spread and become one   of   science,  instead of one of speed  and endurance, and  to-day,   when   played   by  members of the big leagues, it is one  of the  headiest and   -most   scientific  games   known   to   athletes.    Passing  and combination work lias taken the  place of endurance, and  where there  was only one  association  throughput  - all Canada, there are now seven wftli  a 'club membership  running up inkj  the hundreds,  and,, active   members  numbering into the tens 'of thousands,.  Not Qnly has the game progressed .in  Canada, but also in the United States,  where the colleges and city clubs are  taking it up and employing Canadian  coaches.    England  is taking- hold of  the game in a most remarkable manner.   In Australia and New Zealand,  Canada's    national   "game    is   going  ahead by leaps and bounds.  Strange as it may seem, while the  white' men have mastered the redskins at playing the game, no paleface has yet become proficientin the  art,of making a lacrosse stick. The  Indian is'naturally a born whittler,  and as soon as he is able to.handle  a knife is found at work whittling a  piece of hickory.  The making of a lacrosse stick }b  far more difficult than a look at it  would indicate. From the time the  trees are felled until the lacrosse is  strung up ready for shipment requires  generally about four months, .   -  Only the butt, or first six feet, of  a hickory tree is used in manufacturing the lacrosse sticks, the balance being too brittle to take thc  sharp curves. The wood is split up  into strips 11-4 inches wide and  shaped up with a draw-knife ready  for the bending forms. They are  then air.dried for from two to threA  weeks so that the steam will p/ine--  trate. When "the sap is. considered tq  be all out of the'wood'^t is placed'  in a, steamer, end "when soft, bent  p've������ a form and wired. The stick is  al\owe!d to stand for six weeks, so  t^at it will keep its shape when the  -wires are removed. After the wires  are removed, the sticks are taken to  the gougcrs and a portion removed  about the middle of the s.tick, so.  that the backs can, be steamed.'and  Jpe.nt. ' '  They are again allowed to season  (n 'this manner for some weeks.- Thc  g'tick is then rounded about the handle sufficiently to allow it .to be  doulled. When doulled they are  passed along to be back-shaped, after  which the inside is t:*ken out b^y a  draw-knife and the stick is passed  along to, the men who whittle the  jnost important pa.rt of the lacrosse,  which is at the different bends. This  js really where the fine points of  lacrosse-making come in. At this  particular part there are many different curves and thicknesses and a  small shaving must be whittled off  here and there to get them to the  proper proportion and weight. Only  men of long experience are employed  at this particular work. When this  portion of the stick is completed it is  heated and bent up at the crook and  passed on to a boring machine, where  the holes are bored -to receive the  strings' The .stick is then sand-  papered and a coat of filling is applied, and the stringing takes place.  This latter part of the work is done  by both squaws and Indians, the  former being equally as expert at  this branch as the latter. The string  of the higher grade lacrosse sticks  are generally clock cord or catgut,  which is manufactured in England.  The leaders or guard is made from  rawhide. It oftens happens that  every member of the family is employed in the manufacturing of la  crosse sticks,  Otter   Skins  Seized.  Paul Nathon, Ville Marie, Quebec,  which is situa-cd across Lake Temis-  kaming from Haileybury, had 26 otter  and 429 muskrat skins in his rooms  at the King Edward Hotel, Toronto,  recently. He has been endeavoring to  dispose of them to local dealers.  -, Provincial Inspector Greer got a  clue to the presence of the skins. He  met Nathon by appointment and the  seizure followed.  The law is strict about the killing  of otter, and the minimum fine is $120  for each skin.  The next morning Mr. Nation, with  a lawyer, spent some time in the office of Edwin .Tinsloy, superintendent  of -games and fisheries. Nation's  claim is that the skins wore obtained  in Quebec and are consequently beyond tho jurisdiction of Ontario  courts.  A Rough Season.  Colin Fraser, veteran fur .trader, arrived at Edmonton from Fort Chippe-  wayan early in August with $18,000.  worth of furs, mostly beaver and rata,  He reports other furs very sparge,  He says the journey in was the roughest ip his experience.

Is the Result Obtained When Dr.  Williams' PinK Pills Are Used  To have good health you must have  good blood. It is only when the blood  :s bad that the health is poor. The  blood is the life-giving fluid "of.-the  body-it is therefore an absolute necessity that' it should be kept free  fiom all impurities and poisons. - To  do this nothing can equal Dr, Williams' Pink Pills for ��������� Pale People.  These Pills make new, rich blood with  every dose; they drive out every impurity���������every poison���������and thus give  good health. Concerning them Miss  13ernaclette Lapointe, of St. Jerome,  Que:, says:���������"For several .years my  health was very bad���������my system was  completely run clown. 1 had indigestion almost continually; my heart was  weak; I had headachos and backaches,  and was <sdrc all over. ( My blood -wa������  very poor and .more than, once I was  in despair. I tried many supposed  remedies but none of them helped me.  One day a friend advised me- to try  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, telling me  that she had found them good in a  case similar to mine. I followed hei  advice and began taking the pills.  They soon gave me some slight relief. Encouraged by this I continued  their use for several months and they  strengthened my whole system. I am  to-day in excellent health and always keep'Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in  the house for if I feel a litle out of  sorts I take- a box of Pills and am  soon alright again."

A remarkable claim on behalf of  the Grand Trunk Pacific has just  been made by the well-known engineer, Mr. Duncan MacPherson, who  has been prominently connected with  the location and construction of the  National Transcontinental Railway.  He maintains that not only will the  Grand Trunk Pacific be able to beat  any existing railway in Canada in  the cheapness with which it will be  able'to haul freight, but'that it will  transport grain from Winnipeg to  Quebec cheaper than the cheapest existing water route and far cheaper  than the present combination-of rail  and water routes between the. two  points. He bases this / assertion on  the directness of the G.T.P. -route  and the superior character of its  roadbed.  "The distance between Winnipeg  and Quebec," he said, "via-the Transcontinental-will be 1,351'miles, as  compared with ,1,771' miles via the  Canadian Pacific Ruilway ' to Fort  William, and lake, canal and St.  Lawrence river, which route involves  five trans-shipments of the grain. On  the Transcontinental a Mallet articulated compound locomotive will be  capable of hauling a gross load of  4,290 tons, or a net paying load of  2,800 tons, equal to 1)5,333 bushels q(  wheat. Assuming the earnings of  such trains to be ,$4.40 per milo���������  which will be exactly double the  earnings of the C.P.R. freight trains  for 1008���������it is found that even at this  figure the cost per bushel, over the  1.351 miles between Winnipeg and  Quebeo is 4.25 cents. The lowest  known rate from Fort William to,  Montreal, via the lake, canal and St.  Lawrence river, a .distance of 1,216  miles was 4 oents per bushel in 1908.  This i oents per bushel for 1,216 miles  would be equivalent- to 4 decimal 44  cents for 1,351 miles, so that at $4.40  a mile per train mile the engines  could haul grain on the Transcontinental Railway, eastbound from  Winnipeg to Quebec, for 0.19 cents  per bushel cheaper than the cheapest  existing water route could haul it  the same distance, and 10.86 cents  per bushel cheaper than the present  combined rail and  water routes.  "In fact," said Mr. MacPherson,  "the G.T.P. will be able to haul the  grain at about one-quarter the present  rail and water rate."  Hamar  Greenwood's  Tour.  Hamar Greenwood, the member for  York in the British Parliament, haa  not taken his annual trip'tq the Canadian Pacific coast this year, because  hi is putting in night and day sittings  in the House of Commons, with  speaking tours on behi-lf of the bud-  gat as extras. There are only about  fwenty speakers in England, who can  eommand and hold large audiences,  and Mr. Greenwood is certainly oneof these  He is now touring Cornwall and  Devon on behalf of the hudget league,  an organization with Mr. Haldane.  the War Minister at the head, which  is rs-invigorating the Government  throughout the country. Mr. Greenwood started from Exmouth, the  home of Sir Walter Raleigh, on the  10th, and toured by motor through  two of the most beautiful and historic  counties in the British Isles.  His plan of operation is to speak at  a noon-day meeting in some quaint  English town, and then to motor to a  larger town, and take'one and sometimes two meetings in one night. In  this way, he will speak at all the  principal Cornish and Devon places  in about t<*n days. His voice never  tires, and his six-feet of good Canadian physique is equal to any work  that runs up against him. He knows  his subject, speaks lucidly and with  a minimum of gesticulation, and nev-  *"*r fails to ask for questions; and to  deal with them pointedly and politely  He ought to be at least Under Ssc-  retary at the Colonial Office, for if  he does not know more about the  colonies and as nvich about the Government of the home country as many  so-c-.Iled English statesmen, then he  is' not wosthy of the Dominion ol  which he is always so keen a champion.  Grain Exports.  The Census and Statistics Monthly  publishes records of exports of grain  from Canada in the years, 1900, 1905  and 1903. Of wheat we exported in  1900, 9,359,640 bushels, in 1905 41,-  905,937 bushels Mid in 1908, 45,879,058  bushels.  Of o"ts we exported for the first  year 8,103,030 bushels; for the second  year, 3.S69.302 bushels and for the  third year, 4,829.025 bushels.  Of barley we exported for the first  year 2,412,972 bushels; for the second  year, 9?2,738 bushels, and for the  third year, 2.707,154 bushels.  Wheat is obviously the great staple  of our g"ain exports, but in 1908 we  exported about 10,000,000 bushels as  flour, which mak'*s our total for that  year r.bout 56,000 bushels, or only 18,-  000,000 bushels less than the total  quantity of wheat inspected for sale  in the Northwest provinces.  Profits In  Potatoes.  Calgary business mon announce  that $12,000 is the profit they are securing from 160 acres which they this  year leased in the vicinity of Strath-  more and planted in notatoes.  They say that the crop now being  harvested will average at least 200  bushels to the acre. Two four-horse  diggers and 16 men are harvesting the  crop at 16 acres per day.  The notatoes will be stored at  Strathmoro in three-room houses each  60 feet by 20 feet, the total storage  being 25,000 bushels. One full train  of at least thirty cars would be required to handle this crop if it were  necessary to ship all at once.  Naval Evolution.  There may come a time when there!  will bo an imperial fleet jointly own-;  ed by all the dominions and admin-1  istered   by  a  board  in. which  these  dominions will bo represented.     But  this will not be the next stage in tho  development of imperial defence. Tho  first step is the creation of local navies   by  each    of   the   dominions.���������  Winnipeg Free Press.

Oneof (he mo.-t important aids
to prosperity in tbe Boundary iri
the building of a railway from .Midway to connect A\ilh the C. P. It
at iVicola, thereby getting us a
rapid outlet io the coast. The
Mclirido government-, if sustained
at tlie coming elections, promise tu
aid this enterprise- as follows ;
" For the aid to be extended to
ihe Kettle Valley railway line that
railway is to bo built from Midway
jto Penticton, from Penticton to
Suinmerland, and from the latter
to Aspen Grove, and then up the
Cold water river to join the C. V.
to Nicola, afl'oi-ding a through
Coas-t-Kootcnny connection.
"The road from ��� Penticton lo
Nicola, a distance of MO miles, is
to icceive a subsidy of $000 per
mile in cash or inscribed stock,and
that por! ion of the road is to be
taxed at $'.)0 per mile, tho ordinary
rate of taxation.
'The road from Penticton to
Nicola, a distance of loO miles, is
to icceive a subsidy or $5,000 per
mile in cash or inscribed stock, and
that portion of the road is to be
taxr-d at the rate of $00 per mile,
the ordinary rule of taxation.
"The company also agree to
build from Grand _ Forks up the
Ninth Fork of tlie Kettle river, a
distance of- .'50 miles.
'' The company is getting the
old Midway and Vernon stibnidv.
which life courts have held is still
existing, and it lias agreed to pav
tlie old debts of the Okanagan Con-
s-trnclion company in connection
with the grading out to Midway.
" The payments to the company
for the construction of in all
|about 2.30 miles will be made by
the gcverntnent on even ten miles
when :>o miles are built," the goverx
went thereby holding back payments on L*0 until completion of the
portion subsidized.
Construction is to be commenced
within four months after the agreement is confirmed by the Jogisla-
tmeand to be completed within
four ;*,earn.
