In all predictions made as to  the date' of the elections the  date chosen has not been mentioned for the reason probably  that no one supposed that a Monday would be chosen. In selecting the first working day of the  week the government has been  guided by the consideration that  it will give commerical men, and  others whose business keeps them  away from home, a chance to put  in their vote on election day, be*-  ing in business circles practically  a holiday. Another consideration  is that November weather is ill-  suited for campaign purposes and  still another ��� that it . will' leave  ample time for the calling of a  November session,of parliament  if guided by the practice of the  past two years,    '  For, Electric Lights.  - * ��� ��� - . * '��� -  -������ ���>  J* There 'was a. meeting of  the  shareholders  of the Moyie Telephone  and Electric   Light com-  _.    ,.       - , pany held in the sample rooms of  The big tunnel project between  the 0entral' hotel last night, and  BTSADACHKa^rcrKTro* -    ,  OUR GLASSES DO rE?

Of course expenditure increases so enormously, economy  has been neglecting and a day of  reckoning is inevitable. ���  "Canned" Speechs.

They" ascended   to  the   upper .hall,,  where Adele ciiine and sat by her husband, while the swarthy Onega crouched by the window, looking keenly out.  Into the forest.  "Men are rushing from the woods!"  jrled Onega.  "Tut! - It grows* serious!"  said the���������  nobleman.    "We can finish, the game  later.    Itemeiuber  that  the  deal  lies  with  you.     Let, us   see  what  it  all'  means."  De. Catinat bad. already rushed to the  window. Du Lhut. young Achille de la  '��� Noue and eight of the covering party  Were running with their heads bent toward the stockade, the door of which  had been, opened to admit them. Here  >and; there from beb'nd the trees came  little blue^ puffs or smoke. As the  gate'swuiig; into" place behind the little  party the brass cannon, at;tho.coruer'  gave a flash and" 'a roar," while "tbe^  whole'outline of the, wood was traced  in a rolling cloud, and "the shower of  bullets rapped' up'against the wooden  wall like hall,upon a;casement.  Having left Adele to the cafe, of her  Indian hostess and warned her for  her life to keep,from the windows, De  Catinat seized his musket andvruslied  downstairs.'" As he passed, a' bullet  came piping through one of the' narrow embrasures and starred itself In  a little blotch of lead upon the opposite wall. The seigneur had already  descended and was conversing with  - Du Lhut beside the door.  "A thousand -of thorn, you say?"  "Yes; .we came on a fresh trail of a  large''war party���300 at tho 'least.  They are all Mohawks and Cayu-  gas, with, a sprinkling of Oneldas.  We had a. .running fight for a .few  miles," and we have lost five men.   "We  Eight of the 'covering party were run-  nlng'wlth their heads bent.  had best have all ready to retire to the  house if^thoy carry the stockade.   We  can scarce hope to hold it when they  are twenty to one."  "All Is ready."  "And with-our cannon we can keep  their canoes from passing, so wo;might  send our women away tonight.",^  ���"I had'lntetuled'to do so. Wlllyou  take charge of the north side?-.You  might coi/ie, acrqss-..to nie "with ten of,  your men! now."  -  The Drlng came in one continuous  rattle now from-the edge of tho wood,  and tlioair. was full of���bullets. The  assailants wore all-trained shots, men  who had lived by their guns arid to  whom' a shaking"' hand or 'a: dim' eye  meant poverty and hunger. On the  other hand, the .defenders were also  skilled In- Indian .lighting' and wise in  every trick and lure which conld protect themselves or tempt their enemies  to show. They kept well to .the sides  of the loopholes, watching through lit:  tie crevices of ��� the -wood and firing  swiftly when a chance,offered. A red  leg sticking straight' up. into the air  from' behind a log showed where one  bullet at least had - gone home, but  - there was little^ to aim at save a puff-  and flash from among the leave's or the  -shadowy figure of a warrior seen for  an instant as he darted-from one tree  trunk to the other. Seven of the Canadians had' already been hit, but only  three were mortally wounded. .Tha  other four still kept manfully to their  loopholes. The women sat in a line  upon the ground, beneath the level of  tho holes; each with a saucerfui of bullets and a canister of powder, passing  up the loaded, guns to the fighting men.  ���.'At first the attack.had been all upon,  the south face, but as fresh bodies of  the Iroquois came'up their line spread  and lengthened -until the whole east  face was girt with-fire, which gradually enteloped- the' north also. ��� The f ar^t  was ringed in by a great loop of smoke  save only where the broad river flowed  past them. Over near the farther bank  the canoes were lurking, and one, manned by ten warriors, attempted to pass  up the stream, but a good shot from  the brass gun dashed In her side and  sank her, while a second of grape left  only four of the swimmers, whose high  scalp locks: stood out above the water  like the back fins of some strange fish.  On the inland side, however, the seigneur had', ordered the cannon to be  served no more,; for the broad embrasures drew the enemy's fire, and of'the  men who had-been' struck half were  among those'who "worked the guns.  The old nobleman strutted about  with his white ruffles and his clouded  cane behind the line of parched, smoke  grimed men, tapping his snuffbox and  shooting out his little jests.  "What. do.you think of it, Du Lhut?"  he asked.  '"' "They seem to be drawing "closer  upon the east face, and I think that  they will make a rush- there- before"  long," said Du Lhut.  The fire had. indeed grown much  fiercer upon the side which was defended by De Catinat, and'it was plain  that the main force of the Iroquois  was gathered at that point From  every log and trunk and cleft and  bush came the red flash with the gray  halo, and the bullets song in a continuous stream through the loopholes.  Amos had whittled a little hole for  himself about a foot above the ground  and lay upon his face, loading and  firing In his own quiet, methodical  fashion. Beside him stood Ephraim  Savage, his mouth set grimly, his eyes  flashing from under his down drawn  brows and his whole soul absorbed in  the smlflbg of tho Amalekites. * Do  Catinat was bearing himself like an  experienced soldier, walking up and  down among his men with short words  of praise or precept���those fire words,  rough and blunt, which bring a glow  to the heart and a flush to-the cheek.'  Seven of his men were do.wn, but as  the attack grew fiercer upon his side  it slackened.upon the others, and the  seigneur,' with his son and Du Lhut,  brought ten' men to re-enforce him. De  la Noue was holdiug out his snuffbox  to De'Catinat when. a shrill scream  from behind them made them both  look round.-' Onega, the Indian wife,  was wringing her hands over the body  of her son. A glance showed that the  bullet had pierced his heart and that  he was dead. .  -~   -  For an - instant the old. nobleman's  -tf]lxi-��.>?i*ea..grnw.-'i- Khailf** pnIpp- nnd. the.  hand which held out the little gold box  shook like a branch in the wind:  ��� "The De la Noues always'die-upon  the field of honor," he remarked. "I  think that we should have some -more  men in the angle liy the gun."  ,. And now it became clear why It was  that the Iroquois had chosen the eastern face for their main attack. It was  that' the clump of cover lay midway  between the edge of the forest and [  the stDckade. A storming party could  creep as far as that and gather, there  for ,the final rush. First one crouching warrior' and ������ then a second and  then, a^third darted ��� across .the.little  belt of open space and threw, themselves down among the bushes. 'The  fourth was hit and lay with his back  broken a few paces out from the edge  of the wood, but a stream of warriors  continued to venture the passage until  thirty-six hadgot across, and the'llttle  patch of underwood was full of lurk-  \ Ing savages. Amos Green's time-had  come.  From where he lay he could see the  whlto.patch where ho had cut tie Uark  from the. birch .sapling, and he knew  that immediately underneath It lay the  powder bag.' He; sighted the mark and  then slowly lowered his barrel until he  had got to the base of the. little tree as  nearly "as he "could guess it among the  tangle_of-l)i'Kl^��<* jXliaJniIlAt-poiiotrat���  "ed the bag,'and there was an explosion which 'shook the manor house and  swayed the whole line of stout stockades'as though they were cornstalks  in a breeze. Up to the highest summits of the trees went the huge column  of blue smoke,: aud after the first roar  there was a deathly silence, which was  broken'by the patter: and- thud of fall-'  Ing. bodies. -    ��� ���  The blow was a heavy one. Of the  thirty-six warriors, all"picked for their  valor, only four regained the shelter of  the woods and those so torn and. shattered that they were spent men. Already the Indians had lost heavily, and  "this~ffcsli~disastor ma~de~tirem--rccon^  'sider their plan of attack. Their fire  gradually slackened.  . "Is.it-possible that they are going to  abandon the attack?" cried De Catinat  Joyously. *-  But the wily Du Lhut shook his  head. ,"A wolf would as soon leave>a  half gnawed bone as an Iroquois such  a prize as this."  ��� "But they have lost heavily."  ;,"Aye, but not so heavily as ourselves  In proportion to our numbers. They  have lost fifty out of a thousand and  we twenty out of threescore. No, no;  they.- are' holding a council, and we  shall soon hear from thomvagain. But  it may be some hours first, and if you  will take my advice you will have an  hour's sleep, for you are not, as I,can  see by your eyes, ns used to doing  without it as I am."  De Catinat was indeed weary to the  last pitch of human endurance. Amos  Green and 'the seaman had- already  wrapped themselves In their blankets  'and sunk to sleep under the shelter of  the stockade. The soldier' rushed upstairs to say a few words of comfort  to the trembling Adele, and then,,  throwing himself down upon a couch]  he slept the dreamless sleep of an. exhausted man.. When at last he was  aroused by a fresh sputter pf musketry  fire from.the woods the sun;was already low in the heavens, .and the  mellow light of evening tinged the  bare walls of-the room. He -sprang  from his couch, seized his musket and  rushed downstairs. The defenders  were gathered at their loopholes once  more,,while Du Lhut, the seigneur aud  Ad-Jos Green were whispering eagerly  together.  "What is it, then? Are they coming  on?" he asked.  "They are up to some deviltry," said  Du Lhut, peering out at th<j, corner of  ���the embrasure. "They are gathering  thickly at the east fringe, aiid yet the  firing comes from the north. ; It is not  the Indian way to attack across the  .open, and yet, if-they think help is  coming from the fort, they might venture."     '   " '  . "The wood in front of us is alive with  them," said Amos. "They are as busy  as beavers among the underwood."  ; "Perhaps they are going to attack  from this side and cover the attack  by a fire from tbe flank."  "That  is what  I  think,"  cried the  seigneur.   "Bring the spare guns up  i here and all the men except five for  "each s*'1.0 "  The words were hardly out of his  mouth when a shrill yell rose from the  wood, and in an instant a cloud of.  warriors burst out and charged across  the open,, howling, springing'and waving their guns and tomahawks in tho  air. Some of those, in front,bore canoes  between them,"and as they reached the'  stockade they planted them against it  and swarmed up them as if they had  been scaling' ladders.' Others fired  through the embrasures and loopholes,  the   muzzles  of   their  guns  touching  the palisades and jumped fearlessly  down upon the inner side. The Canadians fired while they had time to load,  and then, clubbing their muskets, they  smashed furiously at every red head  wliich showed above the rails.  The din within the stockade was Infernal, the shouts and cries of tho  French, the whooping of the savage*  and the terrified screaming of the  frightened women blending into one  dreadful uproar, above which could be  heard the high, shrill.voice of the old  seigneur imploring' his censitaires to  stand fast' Willi Du Lhut, Amos, Do  Catinat and Ephraim Savage, he;was  ever In the forefront of the defense.  So desperately did they fight, the sword  and musket butt outreachlng the tomahawk, that though atone time fifty Iroquois were over the palisades they had  slain or driven back nearly all of them,  when a fresh wave burst suddenly over  tho south face, which had been stripped  of its defenders. Du Lhut saw in an  Instant that the inclosure was lost and  that only one thing could save the  house. ���''.-'.'��� ''..'���'  '  "Hold 'them   'for   an   instant!"   he  screamed,  and,  rushing, at the brass-  gun, he struck his flint and steel and  * fired It straight into the thick of the  savages.   Then, ������as' theyrrecoilcd for an  instant, ho stuck a nail into the touch-  hole aud drove it home with a blow  from  the  butt  of his gun. :: Dashing  across the yard, he spiked the gun at  the other corner- aud was back at the  -door as the remnants of the garrison  were hurled agaiust.lt by_the rush of  ; tho assailants.

VITUS^DANCE  A Severe   Case   Cured by Dr.  WilliamsVPink  Pills.  - St. Vitus'-dance is. a disease of the  nerves brought on -by a morbid condition of the blood. It is a common  disease with children and attacks females oftener. than males. The only  cure lies in plenty of pure bloody heme   mu/Mieo  "���-   ��������=".  ��>-r- -������*��� i cause good blood is the life, food of  those of the defenders, while others . the nerves.

In proof of  this we have the statement of Mrs.  Alex. Cameron,; Summerside, ��� ; P.E.I.,  who says:���"Some years .ago my  daughter Lena, then a child of ten  years,'became afflicted with St. Vitus  dance. rAt that.time she was attending school and the first indication I  had that something wns wrong, was  that she appeared easily discourage!  in her studies. She was naturally a  spirited child, not given to tears, but.  she would cry over what I thought  should be easy work for her. The  disease progressed so rapidly that in  the course of a few weeks she became unable to hold anything in her  hands, and we were obliged to take  her out of school. She became so afflicted that she could not hold a cup  to her lips without suddenly^ losing  hold of it. I knew from the first by  the svm'ptoms that her ailment was  St.* Vitus dance, and despaired of seeing her cured, as itwas looked on as  such a hopeless-ailment. She became  so bad that she could not hold herself  still for the space of ten seconds.  Her hands or feet were continually  moving and last of all she, would contort her features so that she was losing hqr natural expression. At_ this  stage I chanced on a paper containing  a testimonial in favor of Dr. Williams  Pink Pills, describing the cure of a  little girl afflicted as mine was. I  hastened to get a couple of boxes of  the Pills, and bv the time she had  nsed them T noticed a decided change  for the better, and purchased a further supplv.

Measures Taken   In   England to  Exterminate the Pest.  ���The war :agninf-t'rats is being wac-  ed vigorously in Great Britain, where  the annual damage they _ cause is  variously estimated at amounts'.ranging from $50,000,000 to $75,000,000.  Potatoes infected "with ' a" tasteless  germ are placed within roach, and  this germ���harmless to man���is expected to cause a rapid decrease ol  ,the rodents-by-spreading a fatal'disease among them.

"There was a law once against false  teeth," said the' antiquary, flashing  his superb set in a wide smile. "Yes,  and if your wife wore false teeth or  hair you could  divorce her."  He took down a curious old "book  to prove his statement and read the  following from a British act of Parliament of 1670.:  "That all women, of whatever aK��,  rank,- profession  or  degree,  whether  virgins, maids, or widows,, that shall  from after the'passing of this act im-  _PP.se__upon, jjseduce   and  betray into  matrimony any of his majcsty'sTnale"  subjects by scents, paints, cosmetics,  washes,  artificial   teeth, ��� false   hair,  Spanish  wool,   iron_.stays,  hoops   or  high" heeled ' shoes "shall   incur, the  .penalty  of  the   laws   now   in   force  : against witchcraft, sorcery and such  like misdemeanors, and the marriage,  upon conviction, shall stand null and  TOid."  ed.

Italy, hangs  the famous "Last.jSuppe.r",of,Leonardo  da Vinci." ..Lljie every masterpiece, the  painting required many years of patient labor,-and as. a result, of that  labor It Is perfect In Its naturalness  of expression and sublime In its story  of love. In addition to these.- qualities,  It has an incident in itshlstory that  contributes not a little toward making  it the great teacher that It is.   :       >  It is said. that the artist, in painting  the faces of the apostles, studied the  countenances of good men whom he  knew. When, however, he was ready  to paint the face.of Jesus in the picture he .could find none that would  satisfy his conception. The face that  would serve "as a model for the face of  Christ must bo dignified in its slm-'  pllcity and majestic in Its sweetness.  After several years of careful search  the painter happened to meet one,  Pletro Bandinelli, a choir ^boy of exquisite voice, belonging to the cathedral. Being struck by tho beautiful  features and tender manner that bespoke an angelic soul, the artist induced the boy to be the study for the  painting of the face of Jesus.  All was ' done . most carefully and  reverently,, but the picture was as yet,  Incomplete, for the face of Judas was  absent. Again the painter, with the  zeal of a true lover of his art, sot about  in search of a countenance that might  serve for the face of the traitor. Some  years passed before his search was rewarded and the picture finally completed. As the artist was about to dismiss the miserable and degraded  wretch who had been his awful choice  the man looked up at him and said,  "You have painted me before." Horrified and dumb with amazement, the  painter learned that tho man was Pletro Bandinelli. During those Intervening years Pietro had been at Rome  studying music, had met with evil  companions, had given himself up .to  drinking and gambling, had fallen into  shameful dissipation and crime." '���Tho'  face that now was the model for "the  face of Judas;had once,been, the model  for" the   face   of   Christ.  Brusque BrahrrM.

' "Among the guests was a Broadwaj  merchant, up from the gutter, worth  about $3,000,000. and proud of his vocabulary/which was not unlike Mrs.  Malaprop's," continued Quarles.' "He  shook with- merriment at the banker's  wit. The happy effect induced him to  give a dinner the following week, with  about the same guests, and,' as I hap  pened to. learn afterward, he had directed his servant to let fall a piece of  .roast beef on the floor.

Have you ever had a "woman tell you  that she 'would not say "Please" and  "Thank you" to servants? They are  BUch short little'words that any child  can utter them; but. truth to tell, children of the present day are not taught  to use them when addressing servauts.  A little politeness goes a long way and  helps to lubricate the wheels of domestic affairs fully as much as oil  applied to machinery. There Is frequently as much "friction in the one  case,as In the other. Then why not apply the same method? Politeness and  tact should go hand in hand. An order given' with a smile aud "Please"  will, Iu all probability, be better carried out and more quickly executed  for the little word, nnd If a "Thank  you" Is added when the service is finished what harm can possibly be  done? There Is certainly nothing to  lose by cultivating" good manners���If  you have not them already. In fact,  the gain Is on the side of the well bred  woman who requites each little service with a "Thank you." "Good manners are a greater factor In success  than fncntal ability." said a savnut. It  Is undoubtedly a well acknowledged  fact, that bewitching manners go far  to secure a person-social success.

Each one influences somo ono  else. Our manners- and sayings are  Imitated more than we are aware.

WHY THEY  LAUGHED.  A Chinese Accessory That Made AH  Jthe Mischief.  A girl whose io'i:g pongee coat has  been the admiration of her friends all  this season is seriously considering  never wearing It again. There Is no  question as to the style and art of the  wrap, a long, (lowing affair with fascinating plaits aud big sleeves that float  In the smallest summer breeze. Its  decoration, is a triumph,' for the girl  hied herself to Chinatown and bought  embroideries to use as insets and panels, one of the most fascinating being  a black silk band not more than two  Inches wide. Its length is about two  yards, and it Is almost solidly covered  with embroidery In old blues. -At each  end is a long black tassel. This band,  you see, has been put around the low  neck, so that the two ends fall free almost to the bottom of the coat  So far so good, but one day while  wearing the cloak she carried her husband's collars to a Chinese laundry.  Being by no moans a dull person, it  took her but a moment to see that all  laundry operations ceased ns soon as  she entered and that she had become  an object of unqualified Interest. Almost simultaneously it dawned on her  why. It was her Chinese embroideries.  To the man waiting on her she said,  pointing to her coat trimmings:  "You recognize them?"  "Leg, le's," quoth he of the pigtail.  "Chinaman hold up trousers with that,"  and he pointed to the beautiful long  narrow black embroidered band.

To Be Married In Chapel Royal Is  One of the Greatest Honors to Be  Achieved In England���Royal Weddings Have Been Held There For  Centuries "��� Bishop Who Disliked  Ogling   Introduced   High   Pews.  The Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace, where Miss Reid, daughter ' of  the American. Ambassador, was married to the Hon. John Ward, Lord  Dudley's brother, ��� and equerrj to the  King, is little' known to the vast majority  pf Londoners.  Visitors to the metropolis who make  a point of seeing all ��� the historic  buildings to which they can obtain  access,* says. The London Daily Mail,  well know tho unostentatious position of the chapel, which is entered  from what is called the* Color Court  of the Palace. /But to how many ordinary Londoners who wend their  way through the courts of the "palace,  past the sentries who keep watch  and guard beneath the Henry VIII.  gateway, as a near cut from Pall Mall  to Bclgravia, does the large window  to the right of the portal mean more  than a mere window?   -  Yet inside the edifice lighted by it  kings and princes' have" bcen married and have worshipped for hundreds of years and many babies of  high degree have been baptized. It  was in that chapel that King Charles  I. attended service before walking  through the park to the headsman's  block in Whitehall.  It is a mark of groat honor to receive permission from the King to be  wedded in the Chapel Royal, which  is one of the "peculiar" and "'extra-  parochial" plate's of worship in tho  realm, and not often is the little'edifice used for the celebration of the  nuptials of a subject. Queen Victoria  and Prince Albert were married'* in  the Chapel Royal, St. James's, and  their daughter, the ��� Princess Royal,  was wedded there to the'Crown Prince  of Prussia, afterward the Emperor  Frederick.- The present Prince and  Princess of Wales were also married  within the small precincts. In former reigns Prince George of Denmark and the Princess Anne (afterward Queen), Frederick Prince of  Wales and the daughter of the Duke  of Coburg and George IV. and Queen  Caroline were united there.  It is commonly reported in descriptions of the Chapel Royal that it is  uninteresting in appearance, small  and devoid of beauty, save for the  Holbein ceiling, ;'with its exquisitely  colored panelling,- among which a  short inscription and the date 1540,  with the name of Henry VIII.,. are  discernible. Small it is���it ��� measures  only sixty-two feet long and seats  only about 200 persons'���but, so' well  proportioned, despite its galleries,  that- the ultimate impression conveyed  is that of the stateliest dignity. The  royal gallery faces the altar; at one  side is the organ gallery, and there  are galleries for peers and. peeresses,  memhe-vs of Parliament and 'other  privileged persons. *  On the floor of the chapel there are  old-fashioned pews, and the quaintest are those reserved" as seats of  honor at the sid��s of. the altar. Even  for morning service the chapel very  frequently has-to be lighted throughout, and when from each sconce a  candle gleams the effect is beautiful.  More so is it when to the candles  flowers nre added in glorious profusion. For a royal wedding the pews  are removed and low seats take their  place.  Bishop Burnet "lodged a complaint" in his day to the Princess  Anne (afterward Queen) against the  "ogling and sighing which was" ever  b?ing indulged in at the Chapel  Royal," begging that the pews might  be raised higher and made into closets, as in fact they afterward were.  It was Queen Anne who in the first  year of her reipn ordered "the Yeoman of Her Majesty's removing wardrobe" to provide three umbrellas for  tho Chnpcl Royal'and two for the  Ante-Chapel.  Curious royal warrants and orders  =in^connection=with=the^conduct=of^  services and attendance in the Chapel  Royal .are   extant.   : In  1622   it   was  decreed by James I. thai:  "Noe man whatsoever presume to  wayte upon us to the Chappel in  bootes and spurs."  Charles II. ordered for the chapel  through Lord Sandwich, "Master of  our Great Wardrobe," the following  aticles connected doubtless with the.  upholstery and heating arrangements  of the'sacred edifice, as well, as with  the services:  "Item���two bare hydes of oxc leather. '  ."Item���three thousand of tenter -  hookes, three hamers, one fire shovel,  One pare of tongs, three black jacks,  tK-ee gispons, two brushes, one perfuming pan of iron, six houre glasses,  and a'paire of strong iron andirons;  and that you content and pay- for  nuking, tho premises."  In explanation of these curious appliances it may be added that black  jacks were large mugs made of leath-  ci, used, in those days for the serving  oi small beer, and that a gispen was  a small pot or cup, also made of  leather. The perfuming pan of iron  would be used for the incense burnt  upon special occasions in the Chapel  Royal, and the hour glasses probably  to rc'-late'the length of the sermons.  ���-��� I>-.-��� >e days of long sermons George  III.'; who was a regular attendant at  the services, used to be left alone.at  the conclusion* of them, according to  an old story, with his equerry and  the parson "to freeze it out together,"  the Queen and the royal family having dropped out one by one from the  chapel." ��� It is narrated of the same  monarch that he used to beat time  with his music roll while the anthem  was being sung, and incidentally bang  the powdered polls of his pages when  they were unattentive.

Various Queer Notions Exist All Over  thr. World.  In British' Columbia tho Indians  oeremoniousl\ went to meet the first  salmon.and in flattering" roices tried  to win their favor"' by, calling them  all chiefs.  Every spring in California the  Karaks used to dance foi* salmon.  Meanwhile one of their number" secluded himself in the'mountains and  fasted for ten days. Upon his return  lie solemnly approached the river,  took the first salmon of the catch,  ate some of it and ,with the remainder lighted a sacrificial fire. The  same Indians laboriously climbed to  the mountain top after the poles for  the spearing booth,, heing convinced  that if. they were gathered "where the  salmon'were watcnirtg no fish-, would  be  caught.   v     -      - , '    ��� .  V'ciy widespread, in fact, is thiB  native belief of the necessity of caution whenever Adam is on fishing  bent. ���' *  In'Japan among the primitive raoe  of the Ainos oven the women loft at  home are not allowed to talk, lest  tho fish may hear and disapprove,  while the* first,fish' is always brought  in through a,window instead of a  door so the other fish may not see. '���  The Eskimo women of Alaska  never sow while the men are fishing,  and should any mending bo imperative they do it shut up in little tents  out of sight of the sea.  Under no circumstance on the  northeast coast of Scotland will a'  fisherman at sea mention certain objects on land, such as "minister,"  "kirk,'.'

A  horseshoe -nailed 'to the most will  help, and a herring caught and salted down will' produce wonders.

A cable to this effect was sent to"  Sir George Clarke, Governor of Bombay, who is also the regiment's honorary colonel.  In a letter conveying the offer, Col.  Evans says: "The effect upon the  present unrest and defiance of authority in India would bo incalculable  if it wore known that British troops  in India have fighting at. their side  comradCB Irom Australia and the Empire."  Mr. Deakin, the Australian Premier, regards the offer as chivalrous,  but the Government must consider the  needs of the situation in India before taking action.   ^a  An   Aboriginal   Anchor.  A spirited controversy in New Zealand centres round an old stone anchor which has just been deposited  in the Wellington Museum. It is alleged on the one hand that it belonged to Kupe, the famous Maori Columbus of the South Seas, who navigating his great canoes from tho mys-  -terious���Hawaiki���was���the���first��� uis^  coverer of New Zealand^ On the oth- '  er hand, it is contended that the  anchor could not have been Kupe's,  because it was* found at Paremata,  whereas Kupe landed at Palliser Bay,  and must havo left it on the shore  there when he hauled his canoes up  to the Table-lands, near Mart-inbor-  ough, and there turned them upside  down. They remain there to this  day; or, at any rate, there arc throe  mounds there which may ��� be the  canoes covered by drifting earth and  sand, and among the Maoris the place  is still called Nga-Waka-a-Kxipo���the  Canoes of Kupe.   '    '  Kitchener's Garden.  As everyone knows. Lord Kitchener  is one of tlio most resourceful men  alive, and there is an amusing story  told of how he overcame a difficulty  thai, occurred in connection with tho  visit .of tho Ameer of Afghanistan  to India, some time ago. Kitchener-  desired to lay out a beautiful garden  for the benefit of the distinguished  visitor, and hundreds of rare plants  and exotics were brought for the purpose. Then it was suddenly discovered that there was no grass with which  to plant the lawn, and there was no  time to send elsewhere to procure it.  "Sow mustard and cress seed," said  Kitchener; "that will come up in a  day or two." His advice was taken,'  and iri.,n'_Bhort time there was a magnificent "lawn" which had a far  prettier effect- than- if it .had been  composed of the proper article.  Easily Arranged.  A corporal of a famous Irish regiment, while on a march in India,  went to the quartermaster to borrow  a camel to curry a spare tent. The  quartermaster refused. "I have only  the cart, and this, spare .camel I am  keeping for a case of emergency."
