Most  of them while not professing   to  understand the  tremendous  enthusiasm.,, treat  the  outburst  as  an excellent feature oi  national  character.   The Daily Mail spec-  cial says:    ���\Being on the spot it  is impossible  not  to  enter  into,  the spirit of the thing  and  participate in the enthusiasm.    ]t i��\>  not hard to understand Hie magnetic patriotism of this vast lovable national people, whose emotions are as keen  in  expression  and as frank and1 as unrestrained  as those of children.     It is also  necessary to realize  the  strong,  simple, modest, unattractive personality of Admiral Dewey.    He  is Ihe one figure without a   Haw.  the one man out side a party.

the decision is against Linn Kin,

chief in Victoria.
■ The suit amounied <to  only   a
hi\v hundred dollars bub such   is

The poor Chinaman where is

scene and stop ibis expenditure
of money.
This case, had it-come before
the regular courts, would have
been a God-send to some .of the
struggling members of the East
Kootonay bar.

Stories of Dynamite.
"A   cartridge  oi  dynamite   is
pretty much like a   woman   -you
can never tell what it, i.-> yoing lo
do ne.vt, beciui.so it doesn't know
itseJl."   said a boss blaster.     "1
have  .seen   ti   powder  .salesman
throw   a   cartridge  of dynamite
, into    a     red-hot    firebox   of   a
twenty horse    boiler    and      Ihe
stun" just burned like lard.   Next.
day I saw a boy   repeal ,the  experiment    with   a    blacksmith's
iorgi' and a pill of dynamite   no
larger   than   a   pea-- anil   there

three   round   block's  of iron, six
inches   in    diameter   and   three
inches   thick.      Then   he  took a
newspaper from his  pocket  and
spread one sheet over the face of
the block, 1 placed  half a  stick
of dynamite on top and  covered
it with a little heap of sand  and
touched it off.     You would hardly  believe  tli!'  result,   but   you
can see the block  on   exhibition
in   a  glass  case   in the Stevens
Institute   library,   and  you   can
read on it  distinctly--of  course,
the type appears backward-tie,
printing   of   that   part   of   the!
paper which covered   the  block,i

There   was   a

like  a   woman,  because   in   my

„ Cost of Yachting-.

.sum inciudos the cost of the fine
and valuable steam yacht Krin.

as Dunra ven's Valkyrie'JJI cost

not aiv improbable estimate, as
no expense was spared, on the
Shamrock': materials were new,
(if the costly kind, and subjected
to such tests that much more was
destroyed than was used, and a
bonus was paid for every stroke
of labor on the job of construction.     .
