NUMBEB  PREDICTIONS   OF FORTUNE TELLERS; THINGS TALKED ABOUT IN NELSON DURING THE WEEK. THE O'GORMAN MAHON, THE DUELIST  Lord Huberts makes no secret of the  fact that years ago his great march from  Cabal to Kandahar was foretold to him  by a "fortune-teller," and thut he was  so impressed ut the time that he had  full faith in the prophecy.  The lute Sir Henry Parkes was the  son of a farm laborer in Warwickshire,  _ and, liko many of his class more than  ordinarily superstitious. One day at a  county fair a gypsy fortune-teller told  him that he would find great honor  and fortune "on the othe side of the  world." Parkes selected Australia as  the place where the promised fortune  lay, and landed at Sydney in 1839 with  a wife and baby and three shillings.  Three years later he entered the parliament of New South Wales and ultimately became Premier of the colony,  a knight and a man of wealth.  When the British battleship Victoria  was lost a certain individual wrote to  tho newspapers asserting.that he had  fore told to Admiral Tyron the date  and nature of the disaster. This statement, incredible as it may seem, was  substantiated later by the production  of documentary proof. It was this  same astrologer who predicted to President Carnot the hour and day of his  assassination.  Mme. Modjeska, the Countess Boz-  euta, when she was a girl of fifteen,  accidentally encountered a gypsy wo-,  man in the Ring Theater, Vienna, who  told her that one day she would wear a  coronet. Two years later the actress  married -Her guardian, M. Modjeska,  aud they laughed the prophesy to  scorn- ' Nevertheless, it came true,  for after four years of married life M.  Modjeska died, aud three years after  Mme. Modjeska became the wife of the  Count B��zenta Chlopowski.  Ten years ago two pretty girls,  Rachel and Laura Gurney were assistants in the establishment of Mine.  Elsie, ,a , well-known London dressmaker.-* ' Dissatisfied with tlieir surroundings, they sought, half in jest  and half in earnest, the services of a  Bond street sorceress; who promptly  comforted them with the assurance  that they would marry titled husbands.  So preposterous did this seem to the  sisters.that they vowed to renounce  thenceforth all belief in fortune-telling.  Nevertheless, the one is now Rachel,  Countess of Dudley, aud mistress of  Witley Court, Worcestershire, Himley  Hull, Staffordshire, and a mansion in'  Carlton .Gardens ; while the other, as  Lady Troubridge, cuts a conspicuous  figure in the smartest of smart London  society, s V  EveV Queen Victoria confessed a certain amount of.belief in fortune-telling,  based on the fact that when a girl, at  Broadstairs, ��� she, in company with  several young friends of her own sex,  had foretold to her a number of events  which were "fulfilled iu a remarkable  manner. Amongother things she was  told of her marriage with Prince Albert,  and, further, that one of herimmed-  iate descendants was to "reign over a  great European Empire not then  created." This has has come true, as  her grandson, the Kaiser, now reigns  over the German Empire, which did  not then exist.  The utterer of these prophesies was a  certain "Mother Moddern," a once well-  known character at English watering-  places.     "  The News Advealiser refers to the  fact that further evidence ofthe weakness of the Opposition in the Provincial Legi.laliue wns shown by tin; debate on the budget, which closed on  Tuesday last, when Mr. J. A. Mac-  douald's amendment, implying a want  of confidence in tlie administration,  was defeated by a vote of 15 to 21. The  result shows how utterly unfounded  were the predictions made early in the  session���in fact before the opening of  the House���that on the very _ir_t division the Government would meet  with defeat. After the dismal failure  made by the membei for Yale, whoap-  pears to haye been appointed financial  critic for the' Opposition, the members on that side of the House  made but little attempt to criticize the Estimates and any attacks that were made were conducted  in a most half-hearted manner. Indeed, the Opposition members themselves appeared to be impressed with  the fact that it would be a difficult  task to convince the electors that it  would be to their advantage to replace  the present Finance Minister with the  member for Yale.  had gone out of business and removed  to Alaska, and that spring had taken  over the business, which would be  conducted on strictly spring principles. But now. the careful observer  is unable to tell whether it is spring or  the good old summer time. One day  it is soft and balmy, the next it is too  h it to be comfortable, and on the third  it is just chilly enough for anything,  as a lady expressed it on the street the  other day. Nelson, famous the world  over for the best article of climate in  the market, has been having a change  grutulnto them upon their choice of a  champion. The female population of  that town may be just as worthy and  charitable as the women elsewhere iu  British Columbia, but they should  not select a vulgar, ignoble beast to  chronicle tlieir good qualities.  SIR   HIBBERT'S READY REJOINDER.  Tim Economist has been requested  to give the true version of the exchange of courtesies between Sir Hibbert Tupper and Mr. Justice Martin  during the progress of the Dunsmuir  Trill case before the Full Court last  week. It is thus reported in the Victoria Times:  Mr. Bodweil was speaking and Mr.  ���Justice Irving asked a question which  ���was"flnswered" by Sir ~Charles,~_while  seated.     Mr.   Justice Martin reprovingly remarked that he found difficulty  ���fii   following   the matter   when   two  were  speaking.     Sir Charles replied  that it was his (Sir Charles') fault, but  he was answering a question of Mr.  Justice Irving's.  "I didn't think you were as you re--  inained seated," commented Mr. Justice Martin.  Sir Charles (rising) : "I was answering a judge who didn't require me to  rise."  Mr. Justice Martin : "I don't think  you have any'right to say that. It isa  practice required even in the police  court."  Sir Charles : "I bave often done it in  the Supreme court of Canada, and in  tlie PriVy Council, and may have got  into the habit there."  Mr. Justice Martin : "They probably  make allowances iu certain cases."  Sir Charles : "Lsuppcse they do."    .  Mr. Justice Martiu : "Well, it's a  very bad practice."  In former years, oefore we became  the victims of wealth and chronic fatigue, it used to be a simple matter to  find out" the time of the year wben  spring had come, by .thoughtfully conning a j-elow covered almanac, replete  with general information and the front  page of which was ornamented by a  cut of a man in full antedeluvian costume and a full set of the vitals exposed to the curious. As the late lamented Bill Nye would say that cut  was of "vital" importance, as it inspired the thoughtful searcher after the  season in his calculation of his latitude  and longtitude in the year and his  decimation of a table of logarithms,  which gave him as a result that winter  or two, but we have these variations to  show that we are as versatile in matters of weather as we are in municipal  affairs. If this sort of thing continues,  however, it may-.be necessary to call  upon those in authority to drive the  seasons into their corners, aiid mark  them with different colors, so that  th��y can be distinguished at sight.-  The Ymir Herald devotes two columns of its space to abuse of The  Economist, and incidentally has won  the applause of its *fi iend aud patron,  the editor of the Nelsou Tribune. Two  weeks ago, this paper commented on a  dispatch from Ymir to the Nelson  Daily News, to the effect that the women of Ymir had driven Mrs. Atkinson to commit suicide by their refusal  to associate with her after her husband  had been-charged with arson. The  comment was made in good faith, and  if the Herald had simply stated that  we had been misinformed, we would  gladly have " retracted. Instead, the  porcine editor of that relic of bygone  journalism gives up'two'.columns of his'  space," punctuated with sundry grunts,  in defence of - the women of Ymir  against what it claims to be a baseless  charge. "* The Economist sincerely  hopes that the correspondent of the  News was mistaken in his estimate of  the women of Ymir, but it cannot con-  The paper read at tlie regular  monthly meeting of the Fruit Growers' Association, last Thursday, by  George Fleming, will be rend with interest by everyone engaged in the in-  -dystry. His argument in favor of an  organization like the fruit growers is  convincing, and proves that Mr. Fleming has studied the methods adopted  by the fruit producers in older countries. As he says, it is only through  an association the gardener and fruit  growers can reach a profitable market.  He rightly contends that the monthly  meetings of the association can be  made very interesting by thediscussion  of questions of interest to fruit growers,  and his concluding argument is not the  least interesting of the whole paper.  He said : "We can be very helpful to  each other by comparing notes. I have  not attended a meeting yet that I did  not get some very important information. We can become acquainted with  the appearance of all kin^ls of fruit  pesta that we are likely to be troubled  with and by each member giving his  experience, find the best way to treat  them. I find some people who think  it possible that the Kootenay fruit  growers are going to overstock the market. I cannot conceive where they get  that idea. I think very little thought  will convince"the most apprehensive  that if we grow tlufthe right varieties  of fruit and care for our product in the  proper manner, there can be no danger  ot over production in the Kootenay  district, because of the superior quality'  of h the fruit and the extensive market  that we will have iu the Northwest.''  A   FEW   PLAIN    PARAGRAPHS   FOR   PLAIN   .PEOPLE.  This little  breeze over Mr. Bodweil  continued his argument  The corruption of government in our  great cities, the prevalance of graft in  both private and publio business, corporate greed and uuscrupulousness,  aud all other manifestations of our national abasement haveat least this compensation, that we are getting over the  puppyish self-coneeit which characterized us as a people half a generation  ago. If our papers keep on telling the  truth for a little while longer even our  school histories will get some sense  into them by and by. We have more  yellow patriotism now than we need,  but we havo much less than we had before we found ourselves out.  ADVENTURES OF JOHN TURNER'S DOG.  The pathetic story of John A. Turner's thoroughbred dog is not a new  onej but it will bear repeating in part;  When Mr. Turner announced a few  weeks ago that he would visit his old  home in England, his many friends ih  Nelson decided to' observe the occasion  in a fitting manner. Knowing that  hie was a enthusiastic admirer of the  canine species, a dog with a pedigree  going back to the Ark was procured,  and was presented in due form t6 Mr.  Turner. -The recipient was very much  affected by this mark of goodwill on  the part of his friends, and _did not  hesitate to say so in his feeling reply  to the presentation committee. For  two weeks previous to his departure  for England, the^splendid animal was  Mr. Turner's constant companion, and  the public generally took a community  interest in it, for fear it might get lost  or stolen. But it so happened that in  the confusion of his departure the dog  was forgotten, and ^Mr.*"- Turner's  friends realizing the great disappointment the loss'would be when discovered, decided to have the animal forwarded by express to Winnipeg, at  which place he was to remain over for  a few days. So, a subscription was  taken and the really fine animal was  forwarded to that 'point. The wires  have not echoed tfle exact words uttered by Turner when' he signed for  ithe dog at Winnipeg, but no doubt  they were expressions <>f heartfelt joy.  The dog will be exhibited at the va-  rious kennel shows in England this  year, and will be certain to add greatly  to the fame of British Columbia in the  old land.  When thc Recording Angel writes  down the large amounts which some  men leave to charity when they die, I  wonder whether heji-ives them credit  for the face of I heir bequests or for the  amount they would leave if they were  able to take their goods with them. If  the Lord loves a cheerful giver what  does He think of the people who hang  on to their dollars till death palsies the  grasping hand?  The bravest thing that Kuropatkin  ever did was when he took a subordinate command the other day under one  who had lately been his enemy and  subordinate. And the pathetic thing  about it is that he showed this splendid  loyalty to a false and wicked cause, the  absolution of the Czar, and Russia's  hopeless effort to steal Manchuria.  There is something tragic in the frequent contrast between the poor enthusiasm of those who serve a good  cause and the heroic devotion of those  ���who are on the wrong side.  cause of certain  prospective disadvan-, to expose  them  tages, as if there were any course in ! Fortunately   the  life where the advantages were all on  oae side. Choice is not a question of  choosing advantage as against disadvantage .altoge fher.-but.rather a ques_-  tion of relative convenience and success. There are disadvantages in being  single, as the most ardent bachelor or  bachelor girl must allow. And there  are disadvantages in being married as,  everybody knows save when under the  influence of the honeymoon. But no  bachelor will ever change his condition  if he waits to be convinced that mar-'  riage is wholly free from objections on  the score of convenience and comfort  and good cheer. "Be sure you're right,  then go ahead," doesn't mean be sure  that it's all smooth sailing ahead. It  isn't, whether you sail east or west.  There are difficulties in faith, but there  are also difficulties in unbelief, /itis  hard to do right, and harder yet in the  long run if you don't do right. You  cannot choose between the absolutely  bad and the absolutely good, but must  chooso between the worse and the better course..  New things are often opposed be-  The isa good deal of-.uncharitable  condemnation of uncharitableness, a  good deal of unkindly railing at un-  kindness, a good deal of very ignorant  berating of ignorance. The man who  can pull another man out of a hole in  the ice without pulliug himself in, may  prove himself careful and able, but it  isa far easier task than it is to throw  spoiled eggs and decayed vegetables at  some one else without getting the  smell of them on your own fingers and  clothes. The faults that we find in  other people we usually fasten upon  in our neighbors-  contrary is also  true, and those who believe in  the good in others uro like  the friend who pins a flower on your  coat, she-carries the scent of-ifc-away  on her own "fingers. If you want  muddy hands throw mud. If you prefer fragrant fingers there ure bouquets  and buttonholes in plenty waiting for  you.  The O'Gorman Mahon was about  eighty years of age when I met him  for the first time. One could still see  what a lion of a man he had been. He  wa. over six feet high. He had still  an immense malie of snow white hair,  and he had a long, white beard. The  face was long and hose-shaped, the  eye3 were still bright and fierce and  defiant, and the voice had a deep note  like the roar of an enraged lion. The  O'Gorman Mahon was the very pink  .f old fashioned courtesy, but one  could easily see what a man he had  been. He was the great duelist, of his  day, a survival of the squires who live  in the pages of the chroniclers of Ireland before the Union. He had been  out dozens if not scores of times, and  there was a story of his fighting some  three duels all in a morning.  It was curious that he stuck to the  old dueling gospel to the end. I never  saw a man . so disgusted as he  was when he found that Mr. Paruell  would not send a challenge to Sir William Harcourt'for some insulting language which Sir William had used to  the Irish chief. . I can still recall the  scene. It took place at one of the tables  in the tearoom of tlie house of commons. The old warrier turned up at  the consultation, looking almost radiant. He sniffed the dueling ground  from afar. Some two or three of tho  then young colleagues of Parnell were  presenfrand this idea of a challenge appeared to their modern minds, of  course, as something grotesque. But  Thc O'Gorman   Mahon had  come in  perfect faith thataduel was a certainty,  and his long, horse-shaped face seemed  visibly longer as Parnell calmly said  that he did not regard dueling as rational or necessary. The old gentleman was too polite to express his real  feelings, but the pained silence which,  followed the announcement of Parnell  sufficiently revealed what he felt.  During the all night sittings of the  eigfitiea The O'Gorman Mahon was always in his place. He made it almost  a point of vanity never to be absent  when any such work was going. He  wore the same suit of clothes winter  and summer. It was a curious Ught  colored heavy tweed. Somehow or '  other it seemed to accord with the -  white mane and the_white beard. He  also was a great smoker, but instead of  a cigar he used to smoke the democratic  pipe, and, if I mistake not, the tobacco  was both strong and cheap. He could  tell very strange tales of the old days '  in Ireland and in many other parts of  thc world too. He had fought in some  of the many civil wars of the southern  hemisphere and had many%marvels to  relate of earthquakes, revolutions and  other natural and human phenomena  in those faroff regions.  I was with the gallant old fellow  within a few hours of his death. He  died as he had lived. He was full of  the rouud oaths of the eighteenth century, had his drink to tlie last, joked  about his ninety years, refused all consolations, temporal or spiritual, and -  swaggered off to death as he ofteu had  done to the dueling~ground. He waa  the lust of a race.���M. A. P.  SERIOUS CHARGE OF HON. R. ROGERS,  The "every-dayness"of life is what  wears out our faitli and courage and  good-will. We can be strong iu hours  of enthusiasm, and all of us havo longings, real, honest longings, to be better  men or women. And then we wonder  that we are not saints, and imagine  the men and women whom we honor  must have been made of different stud'  from ourselves, or lived in altogether  different environments. Yet neither  of these suppositions is so. Hero worship would be a better thing for us if  we saw our' heroes a little more truly,  their douots, and fears, aud variable  moods, and misgivings about themselves, and weariness with life, and all  the commonplaceness of their lives in  their own eyes, and the commonplaceness of themselves in the eyes of many  who knew them. They were great, not  because they felt "always as we think  a man or woman ought to feel, but because in spite of their feelings they  kept at it, and plodded faithfully 'on  even when they could not see the road  for tears, or had no heart for the rest  and reward from sheer weariness of  body and deadness of heart. It isn't  keeping up spirits which makes men  heroic, but it is keeping on iu the way  of   duty and    opportunity  whether  ourselves    in    our     very     anxiety, spirits are up'or down.  A painful impression will be left on  the mind of every thoughtful Can a-  dian who^reads the statement, recently  published, of tlie Hon. Robert-Rogers,  Minister of Public Works in the Government of Manitoba, regarding, the  charge that while he and the Hon.  Colin Campbell, now iu Ottawa as a  delegation asking for the extension of  the boundaries of Manitoba, they were  a sked to visit the Papal Delegate, and  that the latter submitted to them some  changes in the Manitoba school, law,  which if made by the Legislature of  Manitoba, would secure to them' tbe  extension of the boundaries of that  Province sought for by them. Reading the statement of Mr. Rogers, one  comes to the conclusion that it is ut  least substantially correct. It would  be easy to show its falsity were it  otherwise. What we deprecate, atid  what every true Canadian will greatly  regret, is, first, that any outsider  should be permitted to intertere in any  Cunadiun question ; and again, that  the question of the extension of the  boundaries of Manitoba should be  made to depend for one moment and  however slightly upon the Province  modifying its policy regarding schools.  The revelations niude by the Hon. It.  Rogers in this statement will certainly  and deservedly create great commotion  throughout Cidiada, and. particularly  in the West���that is, of course, unless  it can be shown that his statement is  false���and the effect of this excitement  will be bad in every way, and chiefly  in setting English speaking people and  French-Canadians more against each  othar, and !:i emphasizing religious  differences. The effect of this excitement will also be marked regarding  the educational clauses of the autonomy bill which is now before the Parliament of Canada.  The charges made by the Manitoba  delegates, briefly stated, are as follows:  They visited Ottawa on the invitation  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. During the interview with Sir"Wilfrid they presented  the claims rf Manitoba, and the Pre  mier told them if they would be good  enough to remain in Ottawa for three  days he would again send for tbeni  and give them an answer. In the  meantime, Mgr. Sbarretti asked for ��  conference with them, and presented  the following memorandum, remarking, if they would place it on the  statute book of Manitoba it would~  greatly facilitate the early settlement  of their mission, fixing the boundaries,  which would be extended to the shores  of Hudson Bay.      His Exoellen_cy_fur-.  ther added tbat their failure to act in  the past had prejudiced tbe Manitoba  claini for extension westward. Th��  following is a copy of His Excellency's  memorandum, containing the proposed  amendments to the Manitoba School  Act:  "Copy D, add to sec. 125 B: And  when iu any city or town there shall  be thirty or more Roman Catholic  children, and also thirty or more non-  Roman Catholic children, or iu any  village more than fifteen of each such  classes, the trustees shall if requested  by a petition of parents or guardians  of such number of either of such  classes, provide accommodation for  each of such classes, and employ for  them respestively Roman Catholic and  non-Roman Catholic teachers.  "Add to 48 B: And when in any  district there shall be fifteen or more  Roman Catholic children and fifteen  or more non-Roman Catholic children,  and trustees shall, if required by a petition of parents or guardians of such  number of either of such classes, provide separate accomodation for each of  such classes and employ for them respectively Roman Catholic aud non-  Roman Catholic teachers."  Hon. Mr. Rogers then quotes a long-  letter sent by the delegates to Premier  Laurier prior to their departure, in  which they pointed out that Sir Wilfrid Laurier had not sent for them according to his promise. On behalf of  the province they entered a strong protest against his decision refusing to  grant the prayer for the extension of  the boundaries Westward and urging  that extension Northward should en-  gage his consideration during the present session.  v --������_ I  y r-  ���-....J..} I  yM-i  ��� '.--fc*|  .'' -y\  , '77-i~ THE KELSON ECONOMIST  THE'IELS0I ECONOMIST  Published every Saturday afternoon at  Vernon Street, Nelson.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  Five thousand men nre now  ���working ou the Panama canal.  Present work is being devoted to  ascertaining exact elements of cost  and time.  Once mere we would like to draw  I      attention to  the fact that  the- rock  crusher  is  still  idle, although the  new council has been doing business  for three months.  With an energetic secretary like  T. G. Procter, the Tourist Association should be able to accomplish  beneficial results for Nelson. Last  year only a start was made iu encouraging the tourist travel, but  enough was done to demonstrate  the advantages of au energetic tourist organization.  The resolution passed by the Conservative "Union ' seems to be bear-  ing'fruit. T\ro weeks af.o the member for Nelscn left Victoria staling  he would not return, but since the  resolution passed, he decided to return to his legislative duties. It  may have been the resolution thai  brought about this result, but there  are some who believe that there are  other reasons. Proposed railway  legislation, for instance.  The statement published in the  Tribune with regard to the deficit  in the operation of the street rail-  Way is slightly .misleading. For  instance, the insurance charged  against the first quarter ofthe year  covers the insurance for ��� the whole  year, and only one quarter of the  amount should be charged against  the operating expenses of the first  three months. Of course there  would still be a considerable deficit,  but it is not likely the ratepayer.*  w illTcomplain"~6n_t_at"score: The"  street car has now become a necessity in the business life of Nelson.

So far as the evidence before the  Oliver select committee to inquire  into the conduct of Commissioner  Green's department discloses, there  dees not appear to have been anything done to justify the attacks  made upon the department by the  two daily newspapers of this city.  Whatever irregularities there may  have been, were due to a clerk in  the department, and even in these  cases, the clerk was only following  the precedents set by the former  Governments. Indeed, it seems as  if the department over which Mr.  Green presides bas never been  better  conducted  th-in  it i.s at the  present time.  -    -     -     : __,-  " Cuvier, the naturalist while a  young man incurred the enmity of  certain of his colleagues, who decided to give him a severe fright by  dressing oue of their number in the  conventional garb of Satan and  making a midnight call upon bim.

Dr. Parr, on maet:n_ "Lord Chancellor Erskine, with whom he was friendly, once said: "Erskine, T ineat* to  write your epitaph when yqit uie."  "���Doctor," answered the great lawyer,  "lt Is almost a temptation to commit"  *uiclde."  At a hall In the country a gentleman  undertook to Introduce a companion" to  a. young but somewhat stout lady, who  . seemed to be pining for a dance. "No,  thanks, old fellow; I don't care to  waltz with a cart." A few evenings  later the same young lady, who had  overheard the conversation, beheld the  young man. seeking an introduction  and asking If he might-have the honor,  etc. "No, thank you," she replied; "I  may ibe a cart, but I am not a donkey  cart."  __________  Irish-American,   who    Ire-  quently visits England and dearly loves  a lord, loses no opportunity of talking  of his great acquaintances. At a recent  . dinner j.arty_in New York, where there  were several Roman Catholics, during  a conversation on the subject .of fas't-  lag, this gentleman said: "It ls very  strange how little Catholics In the  higher rallks mind tho fast days. I was  dining at the Duke of Norfolk's on a  fast day, three weeks ago, and1 there  Wasn't a bit of fish at dinner." "I  suppose," said another Irishman, "they  bad eaten it all in the dining-room."  John' D. Rockefeller recently told the"  following" story: ."I don't question the  1 veracity,of that story, but I am going  to tell you one that I know to be true.  It happened down in Washington. A  negro was driving a wagon and in going through a street ran against a fu-  nr��r. With tlie 'superstition of his  race he thought it would he bad luck  to cross behind the funeral, so. he tried  to cross ahead of it, but the driver-of  the hearse whipped up his horse, and  the two went neck and heck "for a time  until Anally the darkey sang out: 'Say,  dah, pull up youah hoss! 'Mah boss Is  In a hurry an' yuah'n isn't!'"  Judge Bennypacker 6_ Philadelphia  tells a story which shows the readiness  of the Pennsylvania Dutchman to obey  those in authority: In- 1S6_ Sheridan,  under orders, .burned every barn from  a valley above Staunton to a certain  point helow' 'Winchester. A band of  angry rebels 'followed: this raid, watching fora chajiice to pickup any stragglers.  Among others who fell Into their  . hands was a little Pennsylvania Dutchman, who qu^ply turned to his captors and enquired:. "Vat you fellows  going to-do mit me?" The reply.came  short arid sharp:* "Hang y'otf." -'"Veil,"  he said, meekly, "vatever. Is de .rule.'.'  Ills g_od-natured .reply threw 'the  Confederates into-a roar of laughter  and saved his life.    ������  / '  One day last- autumn. Bennet Bur-  leigh, the noted English -special- war  correspondent, was encountered a few  miles outside Pretoria by that volcanic  ��� rhetorician.  General  Tucker.      "What  the are you doing out here  with that thing?" asked the general, pointing- to a kodak which was  slung round his shoulders. "Well, sir,"  promptly replied Mr. Burleigh, "I was  intending to take some photographs;  but had I known that I was to have  the pleasure oE meeting you .1 should  have brought out a.phonograph." At  this audacity, it is said that even General Tucker's stock of sulphurous adjectives ran low.  Gilbert Parker, to illustrate the gullibility of some Englishmen in the colonies, recently told the following- story:  "Once In Australia on my way through  the bush, with my friend Cabbage Tree  Bill, we were accompanied Iflt a burly  and Intelligent young gentleman from  Devonshire, and as we came along wa  saw along the road, If It might be called  a road, a young kangaroo. Bill said:  'Now wait a minute: you will see him  take the letters.' The kangaroo was  sitting up as If waiting for something,  and Bill said, 'He has his pouch and  everything ready to carry them,' but  es we came along Bill snapped his  whip and said, "Nothing to-day,' and  the kangaroo" "trotted off, "the" "young"  gentleman believing for a great part of  the rest ot the journey that the object  -of the kangaroo's presence was as EIU  had said."  John Philip Sousa, the bai^'master,  usually wears his uniform at all times  and seasons, and prefers that his men  do the same. The practice has led to  some very amusing experiences. For  ���example, one night Mr. Sousa was.  standing in a railway station, on tha  platform, waiting for a train. A belated traveler ran up to him and asked,  excitedly, "Has the nine-three train  pulled out?" "I really don't know,"  responded Mr.'Sousa. "Well, why don't  you know?" shouted the traveler.  "What are you standing here for like  a stick of wood? Aren't you a conduc  tor?" "Yes." said Mr. Sousa, pleasantly, "I am a conductor." "A nice,  sort of conductor, indeed!" exclaimed  the man. "Well^ you see," smilingly  responded the musician. "I am not the  conductor.of a ti _ni, but of a brasi  band."  A woman's broken heart mends beautifully if It is attended to at once.���Ex.
