The assize court, which was to  have been held here on the 22nd  inst., has been ajourned to Tuesday, November 3rd.

This was received  with applause by all except ono old  gentleman, a war scarred Ropubli  Saturday evening the Liberals  held their first meeting in Greenwood. The Auditorium was  packed to the doors. E. R. Red-  path occupied the chair, and with  him on the platform were Mayor  Bunting, John D.~Spw.co, J. W.  Nelson, and R. Wilson.  Mr. Ross spoke for an hour and  a half, and it was an  able speech.  Perhaps some of his  frieuds w^uld  have been better pleased had'he  not- been   so pronounced,  in .his  praise of Clifford Sifton.   Mr. Ross  deserves credit for his defense of  all the acts of the Laurier government.    But if one believes in part  he might just as well swallow the  whole policy of scandal aud graft.  Mr. Ross also touched on  Bowser  and Gotoh. , This caused a double-  barreled   interruption.    One   barrel was'discharged from  the floor  and the other from the   gallery,  I producing a little amusement for  the audience.    Mr. Ross stated he  was prepared to meet Mr. Bowser  on any platform and   prove  the  charges he had made.    This closed  one of the best political speeches  ever made in  Greenwood.    If the  Laurier government is as black as  painted,  Mr.  Ross did not make  any admissions to that effect.  The meeting was enthusiastic for  Mr.  Ross.    In fact,   many of the  married men, the heads of families,  in the audience were noticeable for  their enthusiastic applause   when  the word "scaudal" was mentioned.  This was especially so during Mr.  Ross' splendid eulogy of Clifford  Sifton and his methods. The world  is moving.    What yesterday was  a disreputable occupation, is today  an honorable calling.    Crimes that  a   few   years  ago   would   put a  public man behind  the bars, are  now   unblushingly  lauded  in the  market    place    by    church-going  heads of families.  John McTntiif, toeialist member  for Grand Forks riding, followed  Mr. Ross in a speech of about an  hour. Mr. Mclnuid is a pleasing  speaker, and many or thu Socialist-  spell, binders might svith profit take  a leaf out of his book when discussing economic (|uestions.

��� Mrs. Bowser said no more. It would
have been words wasted. Mr. Bowser
would go iu spite of all, and she was
rather glad to anticipate what would
surely happen. lie was feeling good
natured, and after strutting about th*-
room for awhile he showed himself at
the front door and kept his.cars open
fur any remarks. They soou came. A
hoodlum caught sight of him and yelled
to other hoodlums at tlie top of his
"Hi, boys, but here's a zebra or giraffe got out of the zoo! Let's run
him down aud get tho reward!"
SVlth the crowd of boys came a
tramp with a rolling gait. That gait
showed that he was a sailor, mid Mr
Bowser's heart warmed toward him.
He had a ten cent piece"In his lingers
before the man struck the steps.
"Ahoy, old ship!" called the stranger.
"Ahoy there!"
"How'o her bead now?"
"Fifty-seven points off the port quarter,"
"Right yo are.    Say,  captain,  you
look every Inch a sailor.   I spotted *oii
clear from the corner."
Mr. Bowser gave him a second ten.
"That's a dandy uniform you've got,
and it's n dandy man Inside It.   Lord
but I do lovo the Bait air clinging to
four clothes!   Going to start on uuotii-
*r voyage soon?"
"I'm going for a sail tomorrow," was
the reply aa two nickels were passed
over.     '
"Tliat'i* right, sir���that's right. I'll
bet you've willed a small boat many a
thousand miles. Captain, if your ship
was Hailing on n nor'west by wesi
course und you wanted to shift your
Iielluii) to u son'-sou'east course, what
srdoi-u would you give?"
"I'd tell 'em to haul in on tho eta'-
board cntlieud mid Hlack away on the
left hand tilston rod." . 1
"Kignc yo are, my hearty, li 1 had
any doubts before tlicy are gone now,"
���aid the man as he patted Mr. Bowser
du the shoulder.
Mr. Bowser had just given him a
���liiarlcr when Mrs. Bowser came lo the
door. At sight of her the fellow made
his way down to aud out of the gate
with all sails drawing, and after
watching him around tlie corner she
queried of the Old Salt beside her:
"Do you know who that person is?"
"He's been male of a ship, I should
"He's the man that carries out the
nshos next door. He's about as much
sailor as you are."
The boys set up another yell and he-
can hunting around for stones lo
ihrow at (he "escaped," and Mr. Bowser struck his topsails and backed into
lhe house. Mrs. Bowser looked for a
row, but none came. He read and
smoked, and they finally wont to bed.
She was hoping that ho had given up
the sally excursion, but soon discovered lo the contrary, no had scarcely
'alien asleep when he began to sing
out. "Man overboard," "Lower away
'he main deck," "See that tho pumps
���tr<< in order," "Burn a blue light," and
-*o on. At midnight he roused her up
'iy singing in his sleep:
"Oh, the raging sea It roars around.
And tho foam goes sweeping by,
And lhe galo Is howling up aloft
As wo race Cor the sunset sky!"
Mr. Bowser was up an hour ahead of
time and was in such a hurry that ho
ate only a few moulhfuls of breakfast.
Twenty minutes after leaving the
house lie was aboard of one of tho
club boats holding six men. There
was a strong gale blowiug and a good
sea on, and many members as thoy
came along were in favor of putting
the sail off lo another day. It was Mr.
Bowser's words that decided the matter, and they were taken down in pen-
cil to be framed and hung on the walls
of the club, When asked for his opinion lie replied:
"Down with tho sta'board cathead
nnd up with fo'saii boom! See that
the rudder is greased with fat pork,
and scud aloft your heaviest anchor
and let us get out of here. The man
that won't face this wind and sea is
no sailor and no shipmate of mine!"
Bowser Becomes Seasick.
Then they set out to bravo the dangers of the briny. They had proceeded
about a cable's length from shore
when Mr. Bowser began to think of
Mrs. Bowser.
Then of his stomach.
Then of his swimming head.
He tried to think of something heroic
aud was surprised to find that ho
could not. i
Mrs. Bowser had told him that he
would bo sure to be seasick, but he
would show her that���
"Look at Bowser!" shouted ono of
"he men.
"He's a gouer!" added another.
"There he goes, fellers!"
And Mr. Bowser went, ne collapsed
like a hinge and lay in tho bottom of
ihe boat.
Then he called upon Mrs. Bowser.
And upon his fellow members.
And upon heaven itself, and offered
millions and millions of dollars to be
set ashore, eveu among rattlesnakes
and centipeds.
At high noon four men bearing a
stretcher on which rested a human
body arrived at the Bowser house.
The human body was Mr. Bowser's.
"Shipmates, is he dead?" asked Mrs.
Bowser from the steps.
"Not dead, matey," replied one of
��� hem, "but he won't want to see a
boiled dinner again before snow flics.
Better let him do his sailing in a bathtub after this." M. QUAD.

Practice  It.
Restj and when you rest���rest. Dive

corners Inside out and Und what your
own personal idea of relaxation is and
then follow it.
Be not one ,of those unfortunates
who think that rest consists of sitting
still, whether you want to or no, and
who do not realize that out "of a
hundred people sixty-eight* different
conceptions of repose will be found.
Have you ever heard of the stage
driver and Lis vacation? Well, he had
driven a stage in the Cumberland
mountains for something like twenty
years and one clay took the notion that
he needed a rest.
What do you suppose he did? Went
to town and .had a riproaring good
time, you say.
Well, he did not.
To use his own quaint words, "I jest
come every day and set beside the
other fellow on the box and watched
him do my work."
For curiosity a census of the rest
question was taken. Here aro a few
of the results. One is "starch." A girl
said she always felt perfectly rested
and happy when she was dressed in
au immaculate waist, stillly starched
petticoats and irreproachable shoes.
In direct contrast to lliis is tho whim
of another girl that only in old clothes
could she rest, "for then," she said,
"1 can cat sticky candy and juicy
oranges with no ill effects."
From a man came this idea: "I like
to stand ou the edge of a crowd where
I do uot know any one and watch the
people." From another '-amo a similar
ono���to sit on the banks of a uoisy
stream. Sleep was, of course, more
thought of than anything else. Absolute darkness came in for its share of
adherence���perfect harmony, whether
in tho boating of a drum, the rhythmic
motion of a train or simply music.
Undisturbed dreaming came as a surprise from an exceedingly practical
girl, and to sit in a cemetery was the
idea of a particularly cheerful miss.
One girl hesitated quite awhile and
then wilh a laugh said, "Do you know,
1 think if 1 could run iu the grass
barefooted I should bo perfectly contented."
To sleep 011 a freshly filled straw
lick was another choice, aud a Pitts
burger said, "I always thought I could
get splendidly rested if I could just
sleep ou a Mount Washington car
vvliilo it was going through the tunnel."
These are but a few. but you can

Wl.en Cooking  Potatoes. '
To make potatoes as nourishing as
possible we should, after thoroughly
brushing and cleaning 'the outside,
steam them in their jackets. Then
when cooked remove the skins, return
them to the steamer for a few i��iu-
utes to bo heated aud eat them with
some form of fiut.
Baking potatoes is an excellent way
of preserving all the nutritious "qualities of the tuber. Wash and scrub
quite clean, then lay them on the
shelf of a fairly hot oven. They
should he turned .over once or twice
during the process of cooking. Time,
from one aud a half hours to two
Pinch them, and if soft and yielding they are sutiiciently cooked. A
small piece may bo cut out of the end
of each potato and a little butter, salt,
pepper and onion juice inserted and
then the piece replaced. A sprig of
mint in the water is, when boiling potatoes, a great improvement.
Detecting Flaws In Metal.
To detect liliAlen cracks opening
from the surface of metals the surface-

then dried off with a cloth." It is then
coated with chalk. After a little while

aud stains the chalk. A sort of diagram of the hidden fissures and defects is-thus' produced.

Srass Band Shown to Have'Amazing  Curative Powers.  A striking experiment in the treatment of feeble-minded patients under the care of the Metropolitan Asylums Board, at their home at vV'it-  -ham, Essex, has demonstrated the  "curative" effect of music.  At the  Witham   Homo,  the Metropolitan Asylums  Board , has * placed  for treatment all the boys classed as  feeble-minded, between.the ages of 12  and 21, the object being to train  as  many of them as possible to become  self-supporting.      For    this    purpose  various  trades  are  taught,   but    the  progress made was very slow, and the  .signs of success few until it was decided  to start  a   brass  band  among  the   patients.    Tho   result  has   been  really extraordinary, for- not only has  the  band advanced rapidly in musical  proficiency,  but the members of  it, once their interest was awakened  in   the  playing,   have  made  ever-increasing    strides   (toward     complete^  sanity.  The superintendent of .the home, T.  C. Gibbs, states that the progress  made by the playcrs'since the forma-  "tioh of the band had been marvelous,  and the band boys had become distinctly in advance of other inmates  of the home in' mental qualities.  There have been sevpral astonishing'  instances where - individual boys,  whoso cases at one lime appeared  hopeless, ^had mode such marked progress-since playing in the band that  they would shortly be discharged as  mentally fit,r  "The music." he added, "has had  , a charmed effect upon' the patients,  who have 'advanced under its influence by leaps and bounds. T have  great faith in the fiituro,trcntment of  the class of boys we receive here."  As a result of the success .which  has been attained? -. the committee  which controls -the Witham Home  has decided to provide-the band boys  with special uniform, and a suggestion is being considered to employ a  whole-time regimental bandmaster, on  the staff of tho school in place of the  leader'of the local-town band at Witham, who has imparted the musical  instruction so far given, at practices  held twice a week.

Nathan of Patris"  Greece, writes about the Greek preparation and exportation of hasheesh:  "Hasheesh, that strange drug which  has given our language its word 'assassin'���������a man so frenzied by the  drug that he accomplishes murder-  is used by the Persian; Turk and  Egyptians in a manner akin to the  use" of-opium by the Chinese. It is  the product of a n'.ant grown in large  quantities in the Peloponnesus (southern Greece), in the district about  Tripolitza. The plant- grows to -a  height of about four feet, and its  branches are thickly covered with  small leaves and studded with tiny  seeds.  "The entire plant, stalk and  branches, is cut within a few inches  of the root and laid out in the sun  to dry. The branches'are then rubbed to separate the seeds, and these'  in turn are ground into a fine "powder, which constitutes the drug. The  druE has the power of inducing sleep'  and producing pleasant and fantastic- dreams. .' Continued use of hasheesh renders its devotees wild and  reckless and results in a complete  wreck- of their mental and. physical  constitution.  "For this reason the Egyptian Government has prohibited the importation of the drug and recently entered into a convention with Greece  to prevent its exportation from there  to Egypt, where the consumers of  hasheesh are very numerous. The  drug is practically never, used in  Greece, but is now exported to the  various ports in England, Austria,  France and Italy, and from there  much, no doubt, ultimately finds its  way to Egypt."

Wissen fur Alle, a well known German periodical, has recently been  discussing a few facts about colds,  and perhaps some of us who are afflicted with the uncomfortable summer  shneezing and blowing may be a bit interested In part of the,artlcle7  "Many people may  bo surprised to  hear that even In this world Jhere aro  places where it is Impossible" to catch  cold.' There aro facts, however," which  bear this put.   Explorers in the arctic  . regions never catch cold.   Their clothes  are often -saturated with perspiration  through  thoir struggles  over  the ice  and are a mass of ice when,they retire  .'for the night,' aud yet despite the fact  the.v  often  have to sleep out in  the  opeii'.Ju their sleeping bag and that  this  is  their only  means  of thawing  themselves 'out their health 'does not  suffer in the least   Indeed, it has been  declared that most explorers are physically the better off for their sojourn In  the northern regions.  "Then there is the classical Instance  of the St. Kilda cold. On that rocky,  lonely island, lying some forty miles  beyond the western Hebrides, there  are about a hundred inhabitants who  manage by' cultivating a little of the  ground' -ind by catching sea fowl to  keep themselves alive. The coast is so  preclpilous and tho seas so stormy that  for eight mouths out of tho twelve  they aro practically Inaccessible.' Oddly, whenever a steamer touches at this  Island all the Inhabitants, including  the very -i-rfants, are seized ��������� with 'a  cold." -������,  The German periodical puts down  the readiness of the man in the temperate zone to take cold to tho coddling habit which "fears exposure, resulting in a delicato'eoiistitution, more  ready to suffer at the slightest change  of temperature. It sums up by saying: "Exposure is not the direct cause  of colds. It only acts on a lowered vitality. The only safeguard is continued exposure." '\  Children! Do you want  a Painting Book?
