 r~~'?_!_l  -���-�����������.,-'���*���  '     '    '.VM .  IA-  VOLUME VII.  NELSON",' B. C, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1903.  NUMBER 15  ocal and  J/rovincial  The Grand Forks Bar Association  have forwarded resolutions to Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the Minister of Justice asking tbat a new supreme cour;  nidge be appointed, to reside permanently in tbe Kootenays.  Tbe amalgamation of the Victoria  Chamber of Commerce and the Board  of Trade has taken place. The present  members of the former body join the  latter and receive due representation  upon the council of the Board of Trade.  The accessiou of the Chamber of Commerce men brings up the membership  of the Board of Trade to over 300 persons.  . Ben Wilson, the Socialist ex-preacher, Av ho has been addressing audiences  at Victoria and elsewhere iu the Province, has returned fur a breathing spell  to Berkeley,'California, where he has  his present home. He will shortly  pay Victoria another visit, afterwards  lecturing in Manitoba, the Territories,  and Ontario.  Local real estate men state that there  never was a greater demand for good  residences in Nelson than at the present fiine. Contractors also announce  that next year will be a banner one in  the building line.  It is a fact not generally knoAvif,  says the Dlorrissey Despatch, that  within the city limits is aiic.id. burying  ground with upwards of twoscorisTof  graves. It is evidently a rolic of the  'times when the Alberta Indians' used  to run up against all kinds of* trouble  -with the Kootenays as a result of their'  encroach meat upon the hunting  grounds of the latter, ancl.no doubt  the old braves could teil interesting  tales could tbey be induced to talk.  Chief Justice Hunter, of the British  Columbia supreme court, sitting at  Rossland, decided that a special license  does not revive title to mineral lands  '-which had been allowed to lapse and  had been relocated by a second party.  The Woodhurry Mines, a corporation,  lostsome claims on Woodbury creek by  ^'failing to'reh^  One Poyntze jumped the ground.'" The  Woodbury Mines after several months  took out a special license, which it  claimed revived its title as against  Poyntze. Accordingly it tried toad-  verse his claim, but was defeated.  The Victoria Hunt Club held j. very  successful '-gymkhana meet at Viotoria  Saturday,-'various races, with novel  conditions, designed to show equestrian  skill and' dexterity, being well contested. Among the winners were Captain, Sanderson, Lieut. West, and  Messrs. Douglas, French and l'atton.  A branch of the W. C. T. U. has been  formed at IteveLstoko, ia lieu of one  which lapsed some time since. Those  behind the undertaking feel tbat there  is ample opportunity in llevclstoke fur  a revival of the Union's work.  population ofthe place by tlie number  that would necessarily be employed by  the lumber company. In many other  ways there is such a thing as the city  paying too dear for its whistle, but  if the mill syndicate is. composed of  business men, there should be very  little difficulty in reaching an-arrangement that would be satisfactory to all  parties. ......'-  Atthe present time the citizens of  Vancouver are not able to borrow  books from the public library owing to  the fact that the volumes are being  transferred to the new building which  has been built through the munificence  of Mr. A. Carnegie. The handsome  stone library building is however, rapidly approaching a state when it will  be fit for t he use of the public. Nearly  all the volumes have been already  transferred to the new structure while  the librarian, with hi3 assistants, is  getting things into shape, so that the  library will probably be re-opened with:  in the month.  EVENTS AND  The Trail Creek News tells of a  rancher, who, five years ago put an X  mark on a silver dollar and went to  town and spent it with a merchant.  Before the year was out he got the dollar back again for poultry aud spent it  again with a Trail merchant. Four  times in three years that dollar came  home to him foi produce, and three  times be heard of it in the bands of his  neighbors.' The last time he got it in  changed two. years ago, he sent it to a  mail order-house that has amassed a  million dollars selling third rate stuff.  He has never seen that dollar-since  and will not'-'until the crack of doom.  That dollar will never pay any more  se-h'ool or road tax foi-- him, nover.help  to build up tho towu or country, never  help bless or brigh ton the home3 of his  neighbors. He seat it entirely out of  its circle of usefulness to him.  The committee havings iu hand the  amalgamation of the athletic clubs of  the city met Thursday'at the Success  Club rooms. Everything looks favorable towards the carrying out of the  suggestion made by a correspondent in  1t.he���columns_o��=TjiEiEcoKOjris'J?-some-  weeks aso.  The Vernon "News," which probably voices the views ol'the promoters,  declares that the proposed Dominion  aid' to tbe Vernon-Midway railway-project is quite inadequate. The least Dominion subsidy should, it is argued be  3,500 a mile. Hence it would seem  probable that tb e project will not just  now mature into accomplishment.  Lovers of good reading will be delighted to learn that the Canada Drug  and Book Co., Lt'd, has added a large  number of volumes to its already interesting collection of standard works.  The new books, are all of the higher  class of reading and include handsomely bound volumes of the clas-sics.  Tho stock of books carried bv this com-  puny is perhaps Uie largest to be found  in any bookstore in British Columbia.  A blow out of gas occurred in the  No.-l mine at Morrisso/ la^t wee!;, resulting iu tlie death by asphyxiation  of four men. They were : John Rogers,  au Englishman, single; Albert ITor-  binoaux, French, with a wife aud family at Morrissey ; J. Krupa, Slav, single;  J. .Titian, Italian, wife and family in  Italy.  The annual repairs to the trails and  roads of Rossland have been completed  by the Government-trail crew. No new  work has been done.  The offer of certain sawmill, men to  build a big mill here providing tbo  city makes certain concessions in the  way of a free site is a proposal that  should be investigated. It would be no  small matter for a city to increase the  From the present appearances there  will be very little op position to the bylaw, to be voted on Tuesday, providing  for an arrangement- between the city  and the C. P. 11. for additional lots for.  a recreation ground.  It speaks volumes for tbe law-abiding character of  Nelson and surrounding district that at the autiim assizes, held here this week, there were only two criminal cases before the court. Neither one of these cases  belonged-to Nelson, one coming from. Michel aud the  other from Ymir. Occasionally some good man from  the east conies out here aiid. returns to his home in  the east with a story ofthe laxity ofthe morals of the  western people, but there is no exaggeration in maintaining that no county town iri Ontario can improve  upon the record of Nelson. This is stranger still,  when the cosmopolitan character of oiir population is  taken into consideration, Here we have men gathered  from every corner of the globe, and, as is usual under  the circumstances, men when freed from the restraining influences of early associations are likely to lose  their respect for the law. No doubt we have many of  that character in this portion of tbe Kootenays; but a  rigid enforcement ofthe lawson the statute books has  taught the' lawless that they must preserve due re-,  gard for the laws of the land. Nothing conduces  more.to order'than a strict administration of justice.  -Th��Jt we seem to have in British Columbia.  Quite frequently the management of the Nelson"  Opera House is criticised for permitting inferior perr  foruiances being given at this place of amusement. If  the critics Avere aware of the difficulty Manager  Annable has in securing attractions* they might deal  more leniently Avith him. Situated as Nelson is; it i.s  a hard matter to secure any kind of an attraction, let  alone the better class. It is to the manager's profit  that the best shows only should appear at his house,  but he finds it difficult to carry out his desire in this,  respect.'- Occassionally a good organization does  drop in-on us, and of this character Avas" The Mil-  lionaire Tramp." The play is equal to the average  melodrama, and has a plot that is new. Besides, there  are three or. four people in the cast capable of giving,  an intelligent in terpretation of any play. It was fortunate,-: however, that the company giving " Other  People's. .Money" was not permitted to play at the  Nelspn Opera House; Mr. Annable discovered that  the company was without merit, and he telegraphed  the manager at Northport to cancel the engagement.  The organization is composed of Spokane barnstormers, Avho are said 1o be giving about the worst  kind of a performance seen on the road for many  years.;   _    ., _;__.__A..nl__o _-.:;_  : ���   scarcely gets enough patronage to keep it alive. It  cannot be given as an excuse that the publication is  not entitled to patronage, for in many respects the  Kootenaian is. one of the most meritorious publications in the interior. From an editorial point of view  it is not excelled by any. Yet the advertising patronage it gets from the citizens of Kaslo is not enough to  pay for the paper and presswork. This should not  be the case. If the citizens of Kaslo have any desire  to participate in the prosperous times again with.us,  they should see to it that their local paper is not.com-  pelled-to give the town $ioo a week in advertising  and only get $ioo a month.in return. When merchants starve their local paper they also help to kill  tlieir town.  Tbe" residents of Fairview are agitating for annexation to Nelson. There are many benefits to be gained  by such an arrangement. The people in Fairview  would be enabled to participate in the advantages now  enjoyed by the-residents of Nelson in the Avay of  sewerage, eleetric light, etc. On the other hand the  revenue of the city- would be greatly increased as well  as addingto the- population; the latter also an important consideration. In time such annexation must  take place, and the soorer it is done -the less confusion there will be, in bringing about the change.  Many complimentary things are being said of the  Firth-Eaton concert company, which comes to the  Opera House to-night. This organization has appeared at many places along"the main line of the C.  P. R. and in the coast cities, and everywhere the press  speaks well of the entertainment provided.  A great dial of interest is b-.'ing taken in the forthcoming visit of Harold Nelson in November. This  young Canadian actor is rapidly making a name for  himself as an interpreter of Shakespearean plays, and  has gained for himself a warm place in the hearts of  fellow-countrymen. He has. now included " Quo  Vadis" in his repertoire, and the Winnipeg papers  speak  highly of his   work in this piece.-  Travellers for'eastern commercial houses are arriv.  ing in great numbers, and it is exceedingly gratifying  to learn from everyone of them that business' is improving throughout the province of British Columbia.  One traveller is authority for. the statement that of  the three sections covered by his" house, from Port  Arthur to the coast,'the greatest number-of orders  has been taken in the British'Columbia district;' The  goods being bought are also of the best quality,  Avhich is always the case when times are good. Business :in Nelson has not been as satisfactory for four  'years as'it has been this year,.all of which.is pleasing  to record.  ���_' Although the papers are ominously silent about the  matter, it appears that the smallpox epidemic at Spokane vvas of a more menacing character than many  realized, until it was checked. .'.Moreover, the type  of the disease was much more virulent and severe  in character than anj>- that has visited the western  country in recent3:ear_s. i_ItLwas^ well that^thelauth.  ���oritie's-on.the Canadian side of the line determined to  take prompt measures against the spread of the disease on this side of the border. So far as Nelson is  concerned, there is very little.danger of a visitation.  An ounce of prevention in this case is certainly  Avorth a pound of cure. Past experience has taught  us that smallpox is an expensive visitor   to entertain.  Mr. C. M. Fraser. of the High School  staff, is escorting a number of hia.  pupils to the top of the mountain today.  The Victoria Colonist of last Sundaj' morning contained another of those highly interesting stories from  the pen ofthe veteran journalist of British Columbia,  Hon. D. W. Higgins. Like several of the former  narratives, this story deals with early hie in Yale, at  one time the most noted mining camp in the colony.  Mr. Higgins' narratives are all of a most attracti\'e  character, and "I Have Eaten HisgSalt" is no exception to the general rule. It is wAl written' and gives  us a glimpse of social conditions as they prevailed in  the early sixties. By the way, many are impatiently  waiting for the book containing the full collection,  -which Mr. Higgins promised Avotild be published  some time this year.  It is rather a strange thing  that Kaslo, one ofthe  most important towns in the interior, has a paper that  It is again stated that Mr. Justice Walkemhas  tendered his resignation, and that the exalted office  .has been offered lo L. P. Duff, K..C, who has signified his intention of accepting the same. Mr. Duff  stands high at the Bar, aud his appointment will give  general satisfaction.  The Victoria Colonist says Mr. C. HV Lugrin, according to Victoria Liberals, is likely to be a candidate in the forthcoming Dominion elections. He and  Mr. B. J. Perry are considered to enjoy the best chance  of unanimous selection for the Ottawa House amongst  the Victoria Liberals. Mr. Perry came within an  ace of getting a nomination for the local House, but it  turned out to be the deuce of spades.  Yesterday it Avas reported.on the streets that Mr.  Houston had not succeeded in snatching the portfolio  of Lands and Works from Mr. McBride. It was further  reported that Mr. Houston had telegraphed his friends  that he had been turned down by the McBride government. Of course, the situation may be changed  to-das*, but it really does look as if the Premier had  determined to name his own ministers without assistance from any quarter.  N  ews of the  M  mes  The same favorable condition which  has been manifest for some time is the  only feature of the mining industry.  Mr. B. W. Hannington, agent for the  Northwest Development syndicate,  operating mines at Camborne, announces that the company will resume  operations within a few weeks. This  will be welcome nows to the men Avho  Avere employed at that mine. It ls believed that the company has been reorganized on account of the good reports made of the mines in that district.  A rich strike has been made iu the No.  2 tunnel of the Highland mine at Ains-  Avortb. This will increase shipments  from that property. From the Boundary country comes word that the prospects were never brighter than at the  present time, and the same may be  said of every part of the country.  : There is a rumor to the effect that a seat has been  found for Attorney-General McPhillips, and that Mr.  Cotton will be taken into the Cabinet as Provincial  Secretary.   ' .'���"-'  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  Phoenix Pioneer.  In about ten days the air compressor  at the Oro Denoro is expected to be Tuning.  Ore is being steadily shipped from  the Jackpot, as well as tbo adjoining  mine, the Athelstan, iu Wellington  camp.  It is reported that the C. P, B. has  placed a standing order with tbe International Coal and Coke Co. for 1,000  tons of coal per day.  In order to make some repairs one  furnace at the Boundary Falls smelter  was allowed to go cold last week_,_but_is.  now in blast again.  September's cleanup atthe Waterloo mine, Camp McKiuney, amounted  to $10,000. The mine employs 25 men  aud the mill is running full time.  The new cylinders for the Granby  electric air compressor and one of the  slag hauling locomotives haA'e been  shipped together from the factory at  Sherbrooke, Quebec.  G. Arthur Rendell, of Eholt, took a  sample lot of ore from the Waterloo  claim, on the headquarters of the  North Fork of the Kettle River, to tbe  Nelson smelter this week for testing.  Last Saturday was monthly payday  at tbe Grunby mines and Thursday of  this week at the Bnowshoe and'Wln-  nipeg mines. BetAveen the three properties about $40,000 was distributed in  wages.  H. T. Pemberton, of Montreal, has  arrived in tlie Boundary to assume the  bushieos management of the Montreal  and Boston Copper Co's Sunset mine  aud smelter. Albert I. Ooodell will  continue as smelter superintendent.  According to the Boston Commercial, tho Oraliby Co. made a net profit  of 2 3 cents [>er pound on its copper fur  tbe year ending June 30th last. This  included *ix months of 1002 when tlie  price of eopjier Avas low.  At tlie Orunby mines the force employed now exceeds 3.30 men, und outside work is being croAvded before bad  weather nets in. Contractor Fisher is  hauling ore from the south side of the  Grey Eagle to the head of the tramway, and has also secured a small stripping contract.

James Bremner and Tom Flyun report a T5ch strike on the Old Monarch,  near Hall. The rock shows high in  copper pyrites and molybdenite.  Development work is progressing favorably on the Gold Cup. The expected machinery is not yet to hand,  but work on the trail, or road, lias been  completed.  AttheAtiin the crosscut tunnel is  in a distance of 220 feet, aud some $7  and $S ore has beeu encountered in a  new A'ela, which was uulooked for. It '  is expected tliat the main vein will be  struck in the course of a couple of  weeks.  Ed. Cole was down fyom the Spotted  Horse yesterday arranging for a lot of "  sacks.    Tbey intend to make another  shipment of ore, and expect tbe usual  ~  big retu riiB. The lot they are now sack-   "  ing will be  treated at the Porto Rica  mill.  Tbe right of way for tbe Hunter V.  tramway was finished on Wednesday,  and the gang has been shifted to work  on the sidetrack, which is to be nsed  by the niiLway.in .loading the ore. .- Ik.  will probably -be a couple of months  yet before the tramway is in operation.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  The result of the Alaska boundary  ni titration Avill tend   to make Canadians ponder as to Avluit the reasons  are which   have   attached    them   so  much to the idca'of lirilidli connection.  Every Canadian. knoAvs Iioav  ardent  this feeling ha3 been in the past, and  probably few haA'e caral to question  tbe origin  and   justification   for   it.  There is no doubt but tbat the descendants of the U. E. Loyalists, who form a  most iniluential portion of the Canadian people, havo looked with pride on  the honorable exodusof their ancestors  from their homes, and the voluntary  adoption  of a ucav and hard life in  what was then a comparatively  wild  unsettled country,   solely  because of  their attachment to the land of their  origin.   There is something inspiring  in the thought of tbi.s pclf-sncrilicing  fidelity, and .this feeling lias become  perpetuated so  that Ciiiuulians atthe  present day feel it a fine thing to hold  ' to the mother country even at large  ' cost to their material prrsperily.   The  question now is whether England has  '"not so relied on this sentiment ass to feel  that'she can   trade  uii'b   our lights  without   fear  of   resentment  in   the  hearts of her so loyal colonists.

He says:  There was once ia very popular  preacher who wrote many books, and  ior every one there <wias a large demand on the day of publication. But  most of them passed out of print while  he was still'living-, and I doubt If a  single one oE them ls now kept in  stock "by any bookstore. Not many  years ago appeared a book which the  laboring classes and the tenement-  house population bought so eagerly as  to run the sale Into the hundreds of  thousands, because they thought It  showed how an equal distribution of  all property might be brought about.  Now It appears to be dead. Helper's  "Impending Crisis" attained a sale of  140,000 copies,-forty .years ago, which  was as great an achievement as half a  million would be to-day. That wra.8  because of Its bearing on burning political questions and the fact that lt  was systematically attacked in Congress. Now you can occasionally find  a stray copy of it in a second-hand  shop. Tom-gee's "Fool's Errand," twenty years later, reached about the same  circulation. For purposes of comparison, .this and "Uncle Tom's Cabin"  would seem to be closely analogous.  But while the "Fool's Errand" has almost, If not quite, gone out of circulation, .Mrs. Sbo-we's great novel, thirty  years older, still sells largely iln several  editions, and at many libraries is called  for more fcequen tly than any other  "book, Mrs. Stephens'' "Fashion and  Famine" was the best selling novel of  its day, and three translations of lt  were published in France. But to-day  it is difficult to find a copy of it anywhere except In the lumber-room of a-  public library. Another example may  ibe seen in the sudden popularity and  subsequent deadness of "Robert Els-  mere," -the author of which is -still  writing successful books. Were it not  that it might seem like telling tales out  of school, something could be said ot  certain books that have begun life  with a phenomenal sale, which has  stopped suddenly and unaccountably,  as if at some mysterious signal.  For the reverse of the picture, the  most notable exaiiwpla Is afforded by  "Ben. Hur." This book 'had no sal >  worth -mentioning for a year after its  publication, and was considered dead.  Now it is said to have attained a circulation surpassing that of -any other  American novel, with the single exception-of "Uncle Tom's Cabin."  'Someone might prepare a curious  and entertaining article on three  classes of books in light literature: 1.  Those that have had an immediate  large sale, and have then gone to oblivion. 2. Those that 'have had no sale  at first, but afterward have met with  large success. 3. Those that have  been popular at the start and; never  lost their popularity. The first class  would be the largest. .Probably the  second dlass would-be the smallest.  Two that would shine in the third are  the "Autocrat atthe Breakfast Table"  and- "Reveries of a Bachelor."  The Making, of Anagrams.  Apropos the renewal bf the Shakespeare-Bacon con troyersy, an article  hy William Sheppard ln the "Era" on  the making of ��� anagrams is enlightening.' "A correspondent "has asked  rae," says Mr. Sheppard,. "to furnish  'him with some good anagrams on  the . names of. famous people. Ha  further Informs, me that he  has spent a good ' d��i.l of time  trying to make an.acceptable anagram  on the United States, and has failed to  do so. With reference to this failure, 1  would remind him that he must not be  discouraged. The task he has attempted is an enormous one. United States  has just a dozen letters. Now, mathematicians will tell him > that a dozen  letters will admit of seven thousand  !aand_ twe.nty-ninemillions  (7,023,000,000)  of possible transpositions^ ~ord~Cam^  den has vividly dewiribed the vexation  of soul undergone "by anagrammatlsts  'when oft-repeated effort, with an oft-  repeated approximation to success;  ���have finally resulted in loss of time  and labor: 'Some, have been seen,' he  "says, 'to bite their pens, scratch their  heads, bend their brows, bite their lip/;,  beat their hoard, -their paper, when  they were' fair for somewhat and  caught nothing herein.' Again, let him  comfort, himself by the reflection that  no one has yet succeeded in making a  good English anagram on' United  States. AnagraminatiGts have been  forced to fall back upon the more fluent  and manageable laatln. It has been  discovered that the letters forming  United States may be transposed into  the following Latin words:  In te deus stat. "God stands in thee."  Inde tutus stat. "Hence thou stand-  est -safely."  Dentatus est. "He has teeth," tht  "he" evidently referring to Uncle Sam.  Desiste, nutat! "Hands off. Uo  shakes!" a sentiment which may have  been applicable in 1SG1, when it was  made, but is now, thank Hsaven, without meaning or point.  Siste, nudat te. "Stop, he strips  thee," which might -be revived to-day  by the Anti-Imperialists in their warn-  ings to our new subjects in 'Cuba and  lhe Philippines.  A te dcsistunt. "They keep oft from  thee," which is exactly the attitude  which the anti's wish the United States  to assume towards Cuba and the Philippines.

An English paper.says that a great  manj valuable jewels were swept up  after King Edward and Queen Alexandra's recent court. An equerry superintended the work and great care  was taken with the valuable finds,  most of which were promptly enquired  for by their owners.  A peculiarly interesting ceremony haa  been gone through at Westminster Abbey several times. A stalwart grinning  bobby -sits upon, an ordinary cane-  seated ehalr, while a tin crown ls put  on his head to the accompaniment of  thunderous peals from the great organ, and the shrill voices of the boy  choir. It is one of the rehearsals preliminary to  the coronation.  The English sparrow, which has  made so many enemies in the' East,  has invaded the Rocky Mountain region. For some time past, Mr. T. D. A.  Cockerell reports, it has been known  in the north-eastern section of New  Mexico, at Raton "and X,as Vegas, and  it seems to be gradually spreading  westward and southward, having recently been noticed, for the first time,  .at Albuquerque.  One of the bloodiest bull-lights ever  witnessed in Juarez, Mexico, was on  March 16, when Fuentes and Mazzan-  tini, Spain'3 most renowned matadors,'  fought six bulls to the death. -Five  horses were horribly gored and killed.:  or mortally wounded during the combat, which lasted three hours, and the  ten thousand people who saw the Sunday afternoon battle had their thirst  for gore fully satisfied."  The Russian Government has undertaken the completion of a great petroleum pipe line from the oil-wells of  Baku on the Caspian Sea to the port of  Balum on the Black Sea, a. distance of  about 550 miles, following the axis of  the-Caucasus range of mountains. Several years may be Tequired to finish  the work, hut when the line is in operation it will -be capable of transporting  625,000,000 gallons a year, and the. intention ls to compete in the world's  markets .with American petroleum.  It is difficult to account for the enormous velocity of some birds' flight  when migrating. The northern blue  throat goes at the rate of 540 miles an  hour, flying 4,800 miles from Egypt to  Heligoland in a spring night of barely'  nine hours. Virginian plover fly from  Labrador to North Brazil, 9)600 miles,  without stopping, going at the rate of  636 miles in an hour, vand probably  more. How can this speed he attained?  "Nature Notes" thinks it is because the  birds resort to great ��� heights, where  the resistance of the air is slight.  Among the most Interesting experiments in telephoning without wires are  those of Monsieur Du-cretet, a. French  scientist He places an ordinary telephonic transmitter in direct communication wlthl-'the ground, and at a considerable distance away, on the other  side of some buildings with thick walls  and cellars, he has a receiver, connected by one wire to the earth,, and  by another wire to a small metallic  sphere let down through an opening  to the floor of the catacombs beneath  Paris. When words are spoken into  the transmitter they are heard in the  receiver with muoh greater clearness  than In an ordinary telephone. Monsieur Ducretet is continuing his experiments at increasing distances.  In many farming districts of. the  West the telephone is taking the place  of the newspaper in certain directions.  With the spread of the telephone to  farms has come about what the company calls a "news service." At a  given-hour-e very-evening���seven-O'clock^  is the time in most communities���the  central operator calls up Its long line  of subscribers and reads off to them,  as to one man, the important happenings of the day. First the official  Washington time is given, so that  clocks may be regulated, and then  come the weather-quotations for the  next twenty-four hours. Market quotations of farm commodities always  follow, so the subscriber In South Dakota knows what his butter sent last  week to New York, Chicago or Boston  sold Cor that day. This one feature  alone ls changing the markets for certain farm products, and swinging them,  for instance, from Boston to New York,  and vice versa. Important news of  national moment is also telephoned  briefly without bias, and thus the  twenty minutes devoted to this news  service is filled out.  School Humor.

A- new volume of reminiscences by  Dean Hole quotes the following extraordinary'prayer as offered by a'loyaj  but certainly Injudicious English clergyman on behalf of Queen Adelaide, the  Wife of William IV.:. "Oh Lord, save  Thy servant, our sovereign lady, the  queen; grant that as; she grows an old  woman she may become a. new man:  strengthen her with Thy blessing that  she may live a pure virgin, bringing  forth sons and daughters to the-glory  of God, and give her grace that she  may go forth before her people like a he  goat on the mountains."  Certain creeds -seem to monopolize  certain Industries. Praotioally all British manufacturers of cocoa, for example, are Quakers. In London a very  large percentage of cigar merchants  and all the best-known manufacturers  of Christmas cards are Jews. Whenever a "Welshman goes to London to  seek his fortune lt is long odds on his  making his pile either in the draper's  or drug store business.

Gasolene is, it appears, the fuel moat  suitable for submarines; but human  sensations give no sure warning when  Its collected fumes are becoming dangerous. White mice, however, are said  to be extremely sensitive to this poison,  and perish Incontinently before human  beings begin to. suffer the slightest ill-  effects. So in all submarines of the  future cages full of white mice are to  be kept on the floor, whence the heavy  emanations gradually rise, and It will,  always be someone's duty-to go round  and see'how the mice are getting on.  Much interest attaches, to the recent  discovery at Oombarelles, in the department of Dordogne, France, of a  cave the rock walls of which are decorated with engraved figures, some of  which are rudely colored, representing  such animals as the horse, the cow, the  blson.the reindeer,-the mammoth and  the wild goat. Most of these* pictures,  which number more than 100, are covered with a stalagmitic deposit, partially or entirely conceali ng them. It ia  believed that they Were made in paleolithic times, and that they furnish evidence that the reindeer and the mammoth lived ln France contemporaneously with the artisitis ofthe cavern.  It is a curious fact that the present  session of the United States Congress  contains no negro member. With the  exception of a brief period from 18S7 to  1S89, this is the first session in-thirty-  two years when this has been the case.  The first colored man to be sent to  Congress was J. Willis Menard of Ne-w  Orleans, who was elected to fill a vacancy in 1S68. In 1870 Hiram It. Revells  took his seat In the Senate, the first  negro ,-to ��� be seated in -: that . body.  Blanche K. Bruce "was the only other  negro to enter, the Senate. 'The-Forty-  Fourth Congress, which sat from 1875  to 1877, may be called the 'black Congress, since there were eight members  In both, .branches.  There Is an historical reason for the  baneful a repute of the opal. THvo or  three centuries ago the stone was popular ln Europe, and the jewelers of Italy  were especially cunning in, its setting.  At the height of Its popularity came  the plague, whioh made havoc In Venice. It was noticed by some observant  person ln thait city that when a victim  was at the point, of death, his opal, If  ���he wore one, brightened, while after  death- it became dull. As this accession of brilliance implied a sort of malignant purpose -or Intelligence ln the  stone, it was charged with the death of  Ita owner. It never occurred to the  scientists of that time to turn the incident around the other way, and see if  the patient had anything to do with  the opal. But 'that was th4 way of tt:  the heightened fever just" before death  caused the stone, which is affected by  heat, to .become more brilllaht, and the  chill and damp afterward dulled It.  :^P:AA'i|  C."v   ��s'i'"TiMl  AA'Atf!

Gilbert Parker, to .illustrate tlie guilt-  iility of some Englishmen In. the colonies, recently told, tlie followtog story:  "Once in Australia on my -way through  ihe bush, with my rrlend Cabbage Tree  Bill, -,we were accompanied TBT a burly  and intelligent young-gentlemaii: from  Devonshire, and as we cairie- along we  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' t'liem," but  as we came along Bill snapped his  whip and said,  'Nothing to-day,'  and  . the_kangarooj.Jro.Ued_off.   the:  vonng  gentleman believing for a great part of  the rest of the,journey that the oabject  of the kangaroo's presence was as .Eiil  had'said." v/.fi      ���������������  i   -'������ ..,,--.;vo���!.���-..-���'  John Philip Sousa, the - bandmaster,  usually wears his uniform at all times  and seasons, and prefers that-hjs 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^the  platform; 'waiting for a train: A belated traveler ran up to him and askedi  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 conductor?'"-������ "Yes." said Mr. Sousa, pleasantly, "I aot a conductor." "A nice  - eort of conductor, indeed!'' exclaimed  the mari. "Well, you see;" smilingly  lcspouded the musician. "I am not the  conductor of a"tr^iu, but of a brass  band."  The 'Retort Cordial.

The present mace of the British  House of Commons" has been In use  since the reign of Charles II.

A.s long as the flag remains untorn by  the wind etiquette forbids her to marry,   but  with   the   appearance   of   the  first rent she can lay aside her mourning garb, begin to take notice and to  receive offers of marriage."-  A little machine which threads one  thousand needles a minute is at work  in St. Gall, Switzerland.

It takes the needle  from a hopper, carries it along arid  threads It, ties the knot, cuts the  thread off a uniform length, then carries the needle across an open spac*  .ind slicks it in a rack.

The highest wctterfall In the worfd,  geography tells us, is the Cerosola cascade, In the Alps, having a fall of 2,400  feet; that of Arvey, ln Savoy, ta  1,100 feet, and the falls of the Yosemita  Valley range from"709 -to 1,000 feet. But  higher yet is the fall in the San Caya-  tan canyon, in the State of Durango,  Mexico. It was" discovered by some  prospectors ten years ago in the great  Barranca district, which is called th��  Tlcrras Desconocldas. While searching for the famous lost mine, Naranjal,  a great roar of water was heard. With  great difficulty the party pushed on  and up and down the mighty chasms,  until they beheld the superb fall that  is at least 3,000 feet high.  The date-palm may solve the problem of what to do with the arid and  i^te��LUlM^J-Ari2ona.aii.a.other,Weat-  ern States. Experiments have been  made in the past, but renewed Interest  is being taken by the section of plant  introduction of the Department of Agriculture at Washington. According to  the .New York "Sun," Professor D. O.  Fail-child, agricultural explorer for the  department, now traveling in Africa,  has procured a number of suckers, or  ofC-shoots, from the Delta of the Nile,  which will be distributed In the southwestern States. In the United States  the date is an article of luxury, but ln  its native country It is a most important food, many regions In Arabia and  the Sahara being uninhabitable but  for the date-palm.  President Harper of the University  of Chicago recently received the following letter from a prospective girl-student at Feeatonlca, 111.: "Dear Dr. Harper���I know you will be pleased to  learn that I have decided to attend  the university school of education this  fall. I am going to Chicago next Saturday on the morning train, and as 3  have never been in the city before, 1  u-cu!d be glad If you would meet me  at the depot. I am five feet four Inches  tall, have light hair and eyes, and a  pleasing appearance. I shall wear a.  dark-brown, traveling skirt and a blue  waist w-lth white yoke. I think I shall  know you from your, pictures, but for  fear I make .a mistake, .will you please  wear your card in your.hat?"  "A pathetic incident In connection  with a biograph scene occurred in Detroit, Mich., March 17 last," says  "Popular Science." "A view made at  theoccupation of Peking waa beiag  flashed across the screen. It represented a detachment of the Fourteenth  United States; Infantry entering the  gates of the Chinese capital. . As tha  last file of soldiers seemed literally  stepping out of- the frame on to the  stage, there rose a scream from ai woman who sat in front. 'My God!' she  cried hysterically, 'there, is my. dead  brother Allen-marching with the soldiers.' The figure had been recognised  by others .in-the audience as. that of  Allen McCaskill, who had mysteriously  disappeared same years before. Subsequently Mrs. Booth, the sister, wrote to  the "War Department and learned that  it really was her brother whose presentment she so strangely ixad fee&a  confronted with."
