A story is told of a brignntine which
numbered several extremely superstitious men among her crew. One night
when there was no moon and a slight
ground swell "wus running the watch,
who happened to be the most superstitious of them all. heard an unearthly wailing coniiug apparently from the
very surface of the sea. Ihe mate aud
the helmsman also beard it. but the
former lacked imagination, and, although he was certainly interested, he
nearly blew the watch's head off when
he ventured to suggest mermaids. The
helmsman did not feel quite happy, but
he had to stick to the wheel. The
watch was pale with terrov, but he
kept silence owing to the mate's complimentary references to bis courage
and abilities. Slowly the sound began
to move along the ship's side, becoru
ing more and more agonized as il approached. This annoyed the male, and.
going to the side of the vessel, he wail
ed until he had located tlie sound and
. then emptied a bucket of water ovei
the rail. There was a gnsp, then dead
silence, and nothing more was heaid
that night.
When the watch went off duty he ot
course gave a--detailed and  lurid hc-
count of the incident to his shipin-i'es.
who listened, ns he thought, in n���*��'���,
silence and then called on one of Jhe
audience for his version of tne matter
This  man.  a   Tyue-sider,  who  dearly
loved a joke and   had  no respect at
all  for  hoary superstitions,   had  con
epired with his fellows to play a trick
on ihe watch.    Ou the night in question he had crept over the bows with
out  a  sound,  carrying  with   him  the
ship's cat secured in a bag.    Crouching under the stays, Ihe joker let the
cat's head oui of ihe bag, wliich he tied
round   the   mil mill's   neck  so   that   it
could not escape,   lie then applied his
teeth to the unfortunate animal's tail
Everybody knows the fearsome sounds
an angry cat Is capable of producing
and those to which a cat whose tail is
being bitten gives vent are amoug the
most   hair   raising.     The   sound   was
more or less  regulated  by sipieeriug
the luckless beast's body.   Tbe mate's
bucket of water was as unwelcome as
unexpected and caused the Tyue-sioVr
to beat a hurried retreat.
Not only is the origin of many sea
superstitions "wropt in mystery,'* but
also any logical explanation of cause
nnd effect. It, would puzzle any one to
say why it should be unlucky for the
ship's boy to whistle on the weather
bow. except that it Is generally unpleasant from a music lover's point of
view for a boy to whistle on any how
at all.
On one occasion superstition and a
guilty   conscience   caused   n   pructical
joke to have fatal consequences.    The
Incident arose through oue of the sail
ors. a Norwegian, boxing the ears of
the ship's boy for the aforementioned
crime of whistling on the weather bow
Not unnaturally the boy was annoyed
and determined lo pay the Norwegian
out.    Aided   by  two other sailors,  a
white shirt and some string,  a   very
piesentable  '���ghost"  was in-ranged  in
the foc'sle ou the ulght the Norseman
was on wiiicb.   lie was to be allowed
only a glliup.se of tho "spirit" on entering the foc'sle, and It was I lien to vanish from view, being jerked by mentis
of a string underneath the bunk of one
of the Jokers.    IS very thing was ready,
and the three voiisplrnlors lay in their
bunks awaiting their victim     Unfortunately Hie.v all fell asleep, lo be slid

A Generous Village.
They are a generous people in
Limavady, Ireland. A few weeks
ago the workhouse schoolmaster arrived at the.ietiring age and it was
felt th.it the time had come to put a
younger and more energetic man in
his place. The old man had served
the community well- for over thirty
years at . the magnificent salary ot
��150 a year, in addition to which he
had his meals .in the workhouse, ���
which was estimated at being worth
about $100 a year more, so it was felt
that he was entitled to a pension on
which he might end his days in comfort. .   '
The guardians held a special meeting to discuss the matter and with
rare generosity fixed the old schoolmaster's pension at $2G a year. The
munificence of this action will be
understood better when it is mentioned that the same board estimates
that every pauper in its workhouse
costs it about $GU a year to maintain.
Willi truly amazing ingratitude the
old man reiused rather rudely to accept the pension, and said that he
would prefer returning to the workhouse even it in another capacity to
that in which he had adorned it so
long. ' .
Miracle of a  Bath Sponge.
Henry Savage Landor, at one time
a captive of the Lamas in Tibet, tells
the following adventure:
'"ihe lamas had got hold of my bath
sponge, which was dry and pressed to
great thinness by a heavy weight
which had rested upon. Throwing it
from them, it fell in a little pool ot
water. I addressed the sponge in English and with any words that came
into my head, pretending to utter incantations.
"The attention of the Lamas and
60ldieis was quickly drawn to this unusual behavior on my part. They
could not conceal their terror when,
as I spoke louder and louder to the
sponge, it gradually swelled to its normal size. The Tibetans, who at first
could hardly believe their eyes, became panic-stricken. There was a general stampede."
Eighteenth Century Dandies.
In the early part of the eighteenth
century it was a common thing in
London for a man of fashion to spend
several hours a day with his valet,
among-the many quaint operations being "the starching of the beard and
the proper perfuming of garments, tin
painting of the face and anointing
with oils, tinctures, quintessences an J
pomatums." It is even said that some
of tlie dandies of the time bathed in
wine and milk "for the preservation
of their complexions and Ihe rejuvenation of their energies."
Great Literature That Has Been Prepared Just For the Little Ones.
Kobeit Southey, once I'oet Laureate,
wrote many  long,  dull  poems'which
he   imagined   were  immortal   masterpieces, but which aie to-day as dead
as tlie dodo    Had ho not written one
or   two   short   i>ociiis   to   please   his
children, scarcely a line of his poetiy
would   now   ba   road.    But,  as   luck
would have it, lie took his boys anil
girls one day to see the Falls of Lo-
dore,   near   Keswick,  and   when  they
returned they asked him   to write   a
poem   telling   now   tne   water' came
down.   He did it, and it has pioved
the most enduring and the most distinctive  thing  lie   wrote.    Another  of
his    poems,   ilesi rvedly   .remembered
and quoted, is  "The Uattle of Blenheim, ' uegi.uiiiig witn ine MCil-l:iiowii
lines,   "it   was   a   suinmei   evening-
Old  Casper's  work was done."    This
also  was written for his children, as
was also "The lneheape BelL"
Though  "filgi nnjs  j/rogress," as re-
'.gards its first paiC was written primarily as au occupation to relieve the
monotony   of    iicuiord    Jail,    wheie
John Bunyan was lodged on account

truly said tnat tho sjw-nd part���evci
the children's favorite on account of
the boys and girls it talk about, and

"iwib and His Friends" is a classic,
but it was written not for the grownups who delight in it to-d.iy, but foi
children. Dr. Jo'.ui Brown, of Edinburgh, the autlioi of this delightful
book, was a lover of dogs and chil
dren. "liab" was his best-loved dog.

Some Rare Feats of Experts
Natatorial Art.
"And when aie you going to swim
the Channel again P" a society lady
asked Captain Webb, shortly after
his historic tent. "Never, madam,"
answered the hero of the hour, with
a bow; "it is the ladies' turn now."
And. a generation later, it really
seems that, if ever the gallant Webb
is to have a rival, it will have to
be a woman; for since his day a
dozen men have wrestled with the
Channel and havo always come off
"second best."
Thirty years ago there was one woman���or rather a girl���who might
conceivably have swum the Channel
under favorable conditions. Once she [
swam twenty miles'" in the Thames
in 6 hours 25 minutes; and, again,
she covered ten miles in the excellent
time of 2 hours 43 minutes; but Miss
Agnes Beckwith had no ambition to
try conclusions with" such a formidable opponent as the English Channel.
Other doughty Naiads there were,
too, of that day���Miss Emily Pinker,
who swam nine miles in the Thames
in 2 hours 2-11-2 minutes (a feat of
which any man might have been
proud); and Miss Dick and Miss Lizzie Gillespie, who thought nothing of
swimming half-a-do-zen miles or more
111 a choppy sea But 111 their wildest
flights of ambition not one of those
Indy-swiinmors of the 'seventies
dreamed of emuliiting Captain Webb.
Their success s of to-day, however, nro no loiifjei afraid to challenge, mini's siipiemncy even 111 11
spoit which requires more strength
of muscle and power of enduiaiice
than any other. How splendidly
they 111 c succeeding was proved a
short time ago 111 a swimming race
fiom Biooklyn to Coney Island, a
distance of thiitren miles. In this
race, for which thirty of Ameiica's
strongest male swimmers entered,
the second nnd third places were
taken by two girls, of seventeen and
eighteen respectively, one of whom
was within a few yards of snatching
victory fiom the winner. As it was,
they were able to "show tlie way"
to twenty-nine of their masculine
rivals!
It is not lorn* since Miss Lilv
Smith, the eighteen-year-old captain
of the Tottenham -(Eng.) Ladies'
Swimming Club, attempted to heat
Captain Webb's record of eisht hours
for the twenty-mile swim between
Dover nnd Kanisgnte.
Although Miss Smith, owing to the
rough sea, was obliged to turn back
when within two miles of Ramsgate,
she"completed her twenty miles in
the remarkable time of seven hours.
Miss Littlewood, a hospital nurse,
performed a wonderful feat some little time ngo, by swimming from Sun-
bury to Kew, Eng., a distance of sixteen miles, in eleven hours. Miss
Claire Parlett, ��� a Kingston, Eng.,
young lady, has covered thirteen
miles in eight hours and n half; and
many other ladies���almost all quite
young girls���have performed wonderful aquatic feats.'
But all these performances, highly
creditable as they are, pale into insignificance before those of Mine. Ica-
cescu, who thinks no more of a
tliirtyrmile swim than most men- of
a mile. Some years ago this doughty
lady actually swam forty-eight miles
in the Danube, and was so fresh at
the end of her long journey that she

An Unofficial Greeting.
She had looked on, with wide, won
dering eyes, while a more fortunate
maid, in the fluffy, beribboned, spotless whiteness so dear to all daughters of Eve, be they big or little, gave
the Premier of the Dominion, a beautiful bouquet of roses. She had seen
him stoop and kiss her. Then she
separated herself from the cheering
crowd. She strayed tc a spot in the
prairie where she knew they were. She
gathered them herself, a little ill-
assorted bunch of wild weed blossoms
Then she edged her way back through
the throng. She had almost reached

her by the fleeve of her patched print

sprang to her eyes.

her, and the officious committeeman
released his hold.

the bunch and fastened it in the lapel

A Princess as Typist.
Princess Mary ha3 recently learnt
to use the typewriter, says M.A.P.
There are two lady typists attached
to the secretarial staff at Marlborough
House, one of whom, at the princess'
urgent 'request instructed Her Royal
Highness in the art of typing.
The princess proved an apt pupil
and devoted herself so' assiduously to
her work that after a few weeks' iu-
'struetion and practice she was able to
work a typewriter at quite a fair rate
of speed. Her Royal Highness duriii"
her holidays at fialmoral will assist
in the typing of some of the more private correspondence of King George.
The princess also intends to learn
shorthand, and is keenly looking forward to helping Queen Mary regulai
ly with her correspondence when the
royal family settle at Buckingham
Palace. Princess Mary is the first
English royalty, to have learnt typing, and it may also be noted that h*>r
Royal Highness was the first loyalty
to "open an account at the Postoflice
Savings Bank, which the princess did
on her tenth birthday.

When Queen Victoria wa3 crowned
she accepted a fan of British manufacture from the Worshipful Company
of Fanmakors, and at the time of her
Jubilee another one was presented to
her by the company. Queen Alexandra also received a similar gift at
her Coronation. Now it is Queeu
Mary's turn, and Her Majesty Inn
been askod if she will deign to accept
one at her Coronation, and has replied that "she will do so with pleasure
and gratitude, more especially a3 you
mention that it is of British manufacture." Queen Mary is evidently resolved to encourage home industries
in every possible way, thus following*
in the footsteps of her mother, th-i
Duchess of Teck, who did so much for
them.

RHEUMATIC PAINS  Not Due to Cold, Wet Weather  , ���������The Trouble is Rooted in  the Blood.  Many people believe that the twinges ana tortuies oi   iheumatism   are  uue to co*d, damp, or wet weather,  and heat themselves by rubbing with  linimen.s and lotions.   This is a serious  mistake,  and one  which allows  tne disease to pi ogress   to   such an  extent th,.t it is often impossible to  get it out of the system,   liheumatism  comeo from   poisjnoui   acid   in   the  blood, and it must be cured through  the uioou.   Ail the .mi.iieuts, and rub-  b.ng,  and   sj-ca������ied  eleciricai    treatment in tne world will not cure rheumatism.       Tins  is  a  nied.cal    truth  winch eveiy sufferer from this excruciating "trouble should know. -.Rheumatism can only be cured by driving  t.ie poiconous acid out of tne blood,  and eniiching and puufymg it.   There  ,s no medicine will do this so spet.d-  ny and sure.y, as Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.   They, actually make * the new,  rich, red b.ojd, which drnes out the  poisonous acid, upbuilds the system,  and''makes   the . sufferer   well   and  otiong.   It is becauoe they.do this that  Di.  \*/iili..mo' Pink PLls' have cured  thousands of cases of rheumatism after all other tieatmuiit had faLed.   As  proof we give the case of .Mrs. Ft X.  Boisseau, Bt. Jerome,* Que.,-who says:  ''Almost two years ago 1 was a terrible  sulferei. from rheumatism.

'  The ,otherrafte"moon, in the haze of  the heat, not much business was doing in the stores along College street,  in the district ^adorned by the residence of Col. 'Denison.  In a shaded "doorway stood one  local merchant looking out _ into a  hot and unprofitable world. ' There,  was little to see that wns interesting,  except that now and then as a car  clattered past the man in the doorway recognized an acquaintance  among the passengers, with whom he  listlessly exchanged signals, admitting their mutual "existence.  '"'  Presently along College street came  a one-horse wagon driven by a whiskered collector of rage, bones* and  bottles. The driver of the 'vehicle  was ranking good-time, as if he had  heard of a place a mile away where  he could get something 'for nothing.'".  As the -vehicle bustled past the'store  a cat, having, for some reason of its  own, 'decided that it wanted to cross  the road, undertook to do so, but mi-*  calculated in some way, and a wobbly wheel ".crushed it ������to death. The  driver, with a frightened .look back,  at tho slaughter he liad done, struck  his horse and shoved on the reins.  With a shout the man in the doorway sprang into the street, and demanded that the slayer of cats should  stop. Two blocks ahead a policeman  emerged from beneath" a shade tree  and sauntered doun, drawn by the  angry shout of the merchant. The  rags, bones and" bottles "man pulled  up ' hisH horse, declaring with voice,  hands, and uplifted eyebrows ,that he  didn't mean to do it arid was not to  blame. '. ,  "Why," said the shopman, "you  had no business driving like that." 1  wouldn't .have seen that cat killed  forsfive dollars."  "Not my fault," declared the vendor. "!    -. . J  "Not your fault���������not your fault'  Whose fault is it? Was it my fault  standing in my own door. Was it the  cat's fault? Do you think it meant to  commit suicide? Now. you've got to  ���������settle and settle quick."  ' "Here, here! what's all this?" demanded tlie policeman, who had just  arrived.   ,     ���������    ,  "He's killed the cat and he's got  to pay for it. I wouldn't have peen  that cat killed for rive dollars. Hi's  got to pay two dollars to settle."  "Two dollars," exclaimed the peddler, appealing with his eyes to high  heaven.    "Two dollars for a cat."   (  "Two dollars-that's what!"   ���������  "It seems a bit high," commented  the ^policeman, as h*3 wabbled to the  sidewalk with an uir which plainly  baid he would not interfere as long  as the disputants kept the peace.  The two men haggled for 'a long  time, but tonally the pedlar handed  over a one-dollar bill and' drove on  his way, removing the cat for burial.  A number of persons had gathered  ns the dispute proceeded, and when  the merchant entered his shop, one of  these said to him:  "That must have been a valuable  cat.   What breed was it?"  "I don't know," said the merchant.  "You *������ee I never saw the cat before.  I didn't say it belonged to me. I  don't know who owned it.. The inspiration came to me aa I witnessed  the accident" Then he smiled. "I  didn't think. I could get away with  it. You see this dollar is ,to reimburse me for the mental pain I^en-  dured as an eye-witness of the  tragedy."   -      -" -     --  -  ���������  A Magistrate's Duty.   (  The numerous utterances which Col  Denison has made regarding the uie  lessness of law are responsible for tne  fact that many people think that th<*  loronto police court is a sort of happy  go-lucky criminal machine. It is true  that there are no ideals set up for the  guidance of the chief officials, and  they are allowed to show their ability  to joke or their ability to rule according to their, turn of mind. However,  while it is a fact that the chief magis  trate gets along with as little law as  possible, he has a system for conducting his cases. He gave his own idea  to the duties cf a magistrate some  time ago while arguing with'a lanjer  over the merits of a case.  The lawyerv in question was James  B. Mackenzie, "Certiorari Jim," who  has-won fame for himself in the local  courts because of his intimate knowledge of legal quibbles and technicalities. When he tried to work up a  police court practice, he found that  his points of law had nonweight with  the magistrate. --  Col. Denizen hatened to a lengthj  protest from Mr. Mackenzie, and then  he remarked. "The purpose of law is  to give men a fair trial and> punish  them if they are guilty; not to allow  thieves to escape through technicalities."  "That Is not the idea at all," declared the lawyer. ������,  "Well, 1 have given you my view of  a court," went on the magistrate.  "When I took my oath of office, I  promised to dispense justice with  'cunning, wit and wisdom.' But I remembered that some writer said cunning was the child of wit and fraud  and lookeJ exactly like "its ma, so I  decided that when I presided" in this  court 1 would try to get along with  the other two."

It is 40 years since  Jim g-ized upon the sad salt waves  of the blue Pacific. Years ago,  Si Johns, Tough-Nut-Jack, Jim  and us fought the Indians for four  long days. We were in Nat Tucker's cabin, and there were 18���������dead  ones in tho brush when upon the  morning of the fifth day Jack De-  laney broke through the lines and  relieved the situation. Jim, Jack  and the writer are the only ones  left of that memorable occasion,  for Si and Tough-Nut long ago  laid down their earthly packs,  cashed in, and hiked for the.vapory beyond, where the white-  winged angels have a perpetual job  pushing clouds. It is to be hoped  that Jim escapes the Bunko games  of Vancouver, and returns to the  Lucerne full of tales of what he  saw in the clam country. New-  Denver without Jim Ward is as  lonesome as tbe Newmarket hotel  would be without Henry Stege.  Cities are "never built  who do not advertise.  **.  men  Tub world always has the price  for the best. We notice' that  Melba made $50,000 in 15 weeks  this summer by singing in western  Canada. Her manager made 870,-  000.    If much ore is struck in the Big  Tunnel,' Greenwood will rapidly  becom e a secon d' B u tte.  As advertisement is like a seed.  It has to be planted for some time  in fertile soil before its fruits can  be seen by the naked-eye.  Few merchants understand the  art of advertising, and that is one  reason why so many of them complain about hard times.  Even a Smelter cannot pay much  of a dividend, by saving a few  cents upon its printing bill.  Fools rush in where wise men  hesitate, and that is why so many  human failures think they can  edit a newspaper.  Baggage transferred to  any part oi' the City.

In the good old summer time  what a pleasure it is to swing in a  hammock, and smoke K. & H.  cigars.  All the smoke in B. C. this summer is not caused by tbe people  smoking Koyal Seal cigars. Some  of it is from the forest fires.  In Phoenix N. J. Carson & Co.  carry a large stock of gent' furnishings, clothing, hats, boots and  shoes. Drop in and have a rubber.  It is not necessary to go up in  an aeroplane to smoke K. & H.  cigars. You can smoke them anywhere with perfect safety, except,  perhapp, in a black powder mill.  See the barkeeper for further information.  There is just a chance that the  Boy Scouts will be again to the  front after being disbandoned by  the Scout Master owing to the conduct of some of the-members, that  is, if the erring ones will apologize.  We always understood that the  piincipal aim of tbe Scout movement was to make bad boys into  good boys, and very much question  whether the disbandonment was  justified on that score. At any  rate We don't think B. P. himself  would have taken that course.  People who have. to be made  good by compulsion do not remain  good.  It is really better that all the  world should be drunk, than to  have one man kept sober by compulsion.  .If j'ou ,want to increase the  number of your enemies, lend  money to sm ill-minded people.

Those were  flush times and early every morning money could be picked up on  the streets. We found a 'four bit"  piece one morning and traced the  lead for 100 yards before it pinched  out. Those were the days when  Dave Bremner would bet his wild  soul every few minutes, and Jim  Wardner would not smoke the  cigars sold in his own saloon. In  its day, Kaslo was one of the noted  camps of the west, and its name  alone is a poem in five letters.  Killed The Bill.  Mr. De Cosmos, a member of the  Legislature of British Columbia,  certainly deserved the medal for  lung power, and he won it seemingly in a good cause and at grave  risk to himself. The chamber was  considering a bill that would drive  many settlers from their homes,  and there was a sufficient majority  to pass it. The end of ihe session  was only a day and two hours distant. At noon on the morrow the  House must close its business. De  Cosmos was desperate. He must  stop the bill, and there was only  one way to do it. He would have  to speak right on till the end of the  session and prevent a division being taken.  It was 10-o'clock in the morning  when he rose to "make a few remarks in regard to the measure  before the House." Eleven o'clock  Advice and water are two of the  cheapest things in America. Owing to this fact they are not properly appreciated by the majority of  people. That which- we/.."obtain  free is seldom valued highly,, and  the worlds gauges everything by  the prico it costs.  Sun dogs, when they accompany  the sun, are a sure sign of cold  weather. There is no way to, exterminate them owing to the fact  that they do not come within the  jurisdiction of the ordinary dog-  catcher.  If the activity of the land-grabbing speculators continues much  longer in this province, there will  soon be nothing left for the home-  seekers except the tops of the  mountains and the blue sky.  The sweetest singer   does   not  always have the prettiest.face.  came, noon, one o'clock, and still  De Cosmos talked. Members in a  spirit of jest omitted to adjourn for  lunch in order to see how long he  would keep going. The afternoon  waned, the sun went down and  lamps we lit, but De Cosmos never  faltered.  The situation was becoming serious. He certainly held the floor  and seemed likely to keep it. All  sorts of plans were tried to get him  to stop, but eloquence poured from  him as water from a mountain  spring. He was not allowed to  halt for food, though he was permitted to drink.  The Speaker insisted on keeping  to the question before the House  and objected to him repeating himself. Through the watches of the  night De Cosmos toiled on and  successfully evaded ' all traps of  "order." He went manfully on  with hia speech as the dawn broke,  kept up a slow pace as the breakfast hour arrived arid was still  speaking as the clock slowly approached the hour of 12.  On the last stroke of that hour  be stopped in the middle of a sentence aud fell to the floor. For  twenty-six mortal hours he had  stood on the floor and addressed  the House and had nearly killed  himself in doing it. The excitement bad kept him up till the end,  but when the desired result was  achieved his faculties gave way,  and it was several days before he  recovered. But the bill was blocked, and the settlers kept their  homes.  *|0������������9������l������8������OOl0������O0(&M^������rS<^^ ,  ������ ' ' , ���������**  Great, Reduction.- Sale will  only continue ��������� 10,. days  longer. *: Do'' you- consider'-that this 15,per"cent.rdisr\  coimfi'for a $5 or over purchase'. isV great saving\to;  you?
