While in town on  Friday  last,  Mr.  Tho*?.    Taylor,   the   nominee   of   tlie  laberal-Conscrviitive convention    for  this ridiiif*.  was seen   hy   a Hi*n.>_i_u  representative and expressed  himself  very willing '������ R've ,,,s  views on  tlie  topics before the public mind  at the  present juncture,     (.lancing over lhe  New   Westminster   phittorm   of    the  party   Mr,   Taylor   remaiked   that  a  Kreat many of its clauses ntiist commend  themselves   to   any  reasonable  mini   without   ninth   discussion.    " I  heartily endorse the government ownership of railways  plank  of  tile  ���������lint-  form.     Il   itppeins    to   me   lo   be   a  business idea.     Every other colony in  the ICmpire owns and operates its own  rail ways and why not Canada.   Al the  smile time 1 must say that il seems to  me to he a problem   which will  have  to he settled by tho Dominion and not  by  the   provincial  government.   The  latter are precluded  by   the constilu-  t ion , of    Canada,   which    places  the  revenue in the  hands of   the Fedeial  government and leaves t hem linaucially  unable to  undeitake  such   an  enterprise.    At the same time  a  provincial  government could voice the  wishes of  the people by bringing steady ptessuro  to' bear at Ottawa until this important  question was  forced  into  the citcle or  practical   politics.. And   a provincial  ,go vei n ment   could  itlso   make  a   beginning in the direction of government  ownership by lestiicting any government aid to proposed  railways to the  puichase*   of   actual   shares    in    the  concern.  (   The    bonus . system   has  brought us in Canada to the pass that  if lit any time public* opinion  becomes  strong enough, as it undoubtedly  wiH  to force  the   federal" government t<->  take up the matter of state ownership  of railway's,,wc  should   have  to  p'li-  ch.ise   lines   for   the   coustiuclion   of  which in numerous instances we have  by; bonusses   in-   money     and     land  already", paid     and   overpaid.

Such are the police  magistral'.*, the police''lOininis-sioiiers,  and  the   license coinmissioiieis.

Tbe stage, which In some theaters  revolvca to change scenes, has two de*  tactic** projections three feet wide, extending among thc audience. Upon  these projections the performers run,  reciting and acting.  Tbelr acting Is sufficiently curious.

The  prompter, dressed all In black, gown,  hood and girdle, will follow the actor  nil around thc stage. Other persons,  nlso In bluck, run to nud fro across the  stage.

It is politically, -like Jersey, a separate unit, which retains tho feudal  organization and ''customs" or laws  et the Normandy of'the Conqueror. It  has its president and. states, and Its  Well drilled mllltla. It sends many  good sailors Into the" British Navy  and has Its own fleet of fishing boats.  Its silky-skinned breed of Alderney  Cq-ws and Its dairy produce make It  famous from a farming point of view.  -If there be no native mliionaires In  Guernsey, its peoplo tn general are  fairly prosperous, and, although racl-  afl ly. and lingually less nearly allied  to the English than tho Boers are,  fliey are proud of their British clti-  ������?nsliip, and fully appreciating Its  benefits, they have petitioned the  president to call-the states together  on Friday for the purpose or voting  '������10,000 -to buy and present the Imperial government-with two batteries  61 Geld artillery, or any other war  material which may be moro acceptable for use at the front. The petition on which the States of Guernsey have been called .together does  not mince matters.

She therefore Instructed her husband uever to mention her name in their  hearing. Oae day this lady had somo  visitors, and to their great delectation  the cook presently put his head insida the  door and asked sweetly:  "My love, what vegetables do you  want today?"  After that the English woman was content to be called simply Mary.���������Family  Herald.        Bnppln _������������������ a. Duty.  Bo happy! Bo happy in spite of every*  thing! When n person Is not happy, he  la a failure in life. To bo bappy is to be  normal, and the normal peoplo aro thoso  who come out on top In the long run.  Nature and human nature detest abnormal things, and unhappy people are certainly abnormal people. It la said that  nothing innltea happiness like happiness,  and, from observation, one sees that It Is  true, nnpplness Is two things���������a good  habit and a spiritual state. Many women,  you think, are born unhappy. Is thero  any one such a weakiuluded creature that  Hhn cannot cultivate the good habit of be-  in . happy?  The trouble with the average woman  who fancies herself unhappy is only an  unwholesome fancy. She caresses and  nourishes unhnppincss. In other words,  she butts trouble. She luxuriates In being  melancholy, In looking on tbe wrong side  of things. It she only knew how disagreeable this nindo her in the sight of  men she would very soon change her tactics, for it lias come to he a recognized  fact In modern civilization that happiness  is a necessity of life.  MATRON AND MAID.  The DnefctiiK Stool In Bnalaai*.  It Is Interesting to conjure up a picture of a "ducking" as practiced In  England at tbe end of tho eighteenth  century.  - When the "scold" had been properly  trk*d and convicted, she was escorted  by a crowd of her neighbors���������In fact,  by tbe whole village���������to the nearest  pond���������and the greener and slimier the  pond tbe better. A long plank waa  produced, at one end of which was the  "ducking stool." and In this the screaming, struggling victim was securely pin-  lont-d.  The chair end of the plank was the*  pushed far over tbe edge of the pond,  nnd at a signal It was tilted deep Into  thc green ooze until the scold was completely immersed.  When the dripping, half drowned  womnn was raised to the surface  agnln. to the jeers and laughter of the  onlookers. It can be imagined that her  tongue wagged to some purpose. After  a socond dose she emerged more subdued, and after a third or fourth sha  wns as penitent a woman as the village contained and was allowed fa  proceed home a sadder and wiser wo*  man���������until the next time. ��������� London  Tit-Bits.

Sickness Kn-slly Bnrred,  "Keep your vitality above tho negative  condition, und you will'never know disease of any kind," writes E5. B. Warman  in The Ladies' Home Journal. "No disease cnu exist where there is an abundance of pure blood. To get the necessary amount, eat nutritious food; to circulate it perfectly, take proper exercise;  to purify it, get fresh air and sunlight.  If ������ perfectly healthy condition of the  skin exists and an even temperature of  the surface of the body is maintained,  it is impossible to catch cold. Cold water bntlis taken every day will do much  towafil-producing the former; proper food  nnd exercise the latter. Nature gives you  an altiriu in the first chilly feeling. Heed  it :it once or pay tho penalty. -Take a  brisk walk or run, breathe" deeply and  keep the mouth closed. If you are so situated that you can do neither, us in B  church, lecture room, street or steam  car, breathe deeply, rapidly and noiselessly until you are satisfied that your body  has passed from a negative to a positive  condition."  Don't Rock -tho Baby.  Strange as It may seem, the time honored custom of rocking babies to sleep ii  a bad one. It is injurious to the children  themselves and is a cause, eventually, of  much unnecessary trouble to their guardians. Mothers should therefore see to  It that from the very first the little ones  are brought up In' the way they should  go and that the monthly nurse does not  get them into bad habits by rocking them  to sleep either in her arms or in their  cots. There is no doubt that rocking ia  the moat expeditious way of inducing a  baby to go to sleep, but if one once BtarU  a baby will not sleep without it and at a  Liter age is likely to auffer from la-  somnin. Rocking may aavo immediate  trouble to a lazy nurse or mother by. inducing sleep when a child does not require it or when it ought to be taken up  from Its cot nnd have clean clothes put  on, but it will never cause that aweet,  gentle nnd perfect sleep which should be  characteristic of a baby who haa no artificial aids to induce slumber.���������Home  Notes.    Attractive Dress.  We all know how some women after a  year or two of married life, get careless  about their dress, says a lady novelist.  They seem to think that their fortune  Is made and it isn't necessary to arrange  the hair becomingly and put on pretty  gowos just for their husbands. This is  all wrong, and it is an error that arises  from laziness. Ilea like,.to see their  wives'look pretty just as much as they  did when they were but sweethearts.  Take a woman's advice, and if you can  have but one attractive gown let that be  the one to wear indoors. Endeavor to  hare daintily arranged hair and a neat  -and-simp!e-cost'_ime_for_breakfa=t���������Have-  well fitting boots or slippers, as the case  may be, and. in fact, study to make your-  seif just as winsome after the fish is  landed as when yon were not so sure of  him  U)ra Daisy Stevenson Is the warUaa  proprietor at a flourishing butcher shop  la Rochester.

The Double Eagle Company has been formed for the purpose, not only of mning its present properties  but of acquiring promising claims and developing them to an extent that will justify their sale to English nnd  other companies at a profit. The company already owns and ' has paid for in full, the Trilby and u01d Saul  properties in the famous Fish River district, and a three-quarters interest in the May Bee mine, in th*  Lardeau district one and a half miles from Ferguson Sufficient promoter's shares have been set aside for th9-  purchase  of tbe remaining quarter.  The May Bee is the sister claim to the now famous Nettie L, which has broken all records in British  Columbia for large bodies of phenomenally rich ore. The May Bee aud Nettie L were located together in  1H92 by Mr. W. B. Pool (who has been appointed manager of the Double Eagle Co.) Both claims carry identically  the same rich ore on the surface and the same remarkable ledge runs through both, carrying high values  in gold, copper, silver and lead. The promoters have already spent $4,000 in developing the May Bee, with  excellent results, and in-order to place the mine quickly tn a shipping basis the company now offers the public  the opportunity of investing to" a limited extent in fully paid and non-assessable treasury shares (par value  $1)  at   10 cents each.  ���������fjta JB0.

The movements of the cavalry force  and part of the Infantry toward Glen  can scarcely' be construed as an actual  advance though ,,they undoubtedly  point ��������� to the imminence of. such, a  step.' But only a small part of Gen-  eal Gatacres force has yet arrived at  Bloemfontein    and until' that move  ment shall hav������ been completed, It  is not' likely that Lord" Roberta will  start for Pretoria.  The latest news from Bloemfontein  contained in a. despatch published In  the second edition of the Times,  dated Wednesday,* Mach 28th, dwells  upon the necessity for not making  a premature advance. This correspondent, who on several occasions  has seemed to have been chosen as  th-3 mouthpiece of Lord Roberts',  says: "It should be clearly understood that the present halt in the vicinity of North Bloemfontein is absolutely necessary as a military precaution. It should be borne in mind  that we had to enter a phase of operations with the main communication through a recently occupied hostile country and that the recent successes necessitated a great expenditure of horso power here and in  Natal.

A deputation of Dutch church ministers today had an audience with Premier Schreiner of Capetown.

He added that  he had made strong representations  to tho Imperial government against  sending any prisoners to St. Helena.

Biftri-Btnta H������!<: In the Preaeao*  ���������I A-utrla> Arm/ Bnclneera.     '"  A series of tests of liquid air were  made a few wecVjs ago by the Vienna  Crystal Ice company la the presence  of representatives of the Austrian  technical military - committee. Tha  fluid was obtained from Llude'a works  In Munich and'conveyed to Vienna ia  open flasks, having the Dewar vacuum  jacket to check evaporation.    When it '    0_!<-f.   Taylor   I'lock, Mackenzie    Avenue,  was dispatched, the mixture T^'l^'o thcC p.k  75 per cent of oxygen, but 72 hours '   - ~  later, when the stuff waa used, enough  nitrogen had evaporated to make ti.e  percentage of oxygen 85.  Cartridges were made* of liquid air,  mineral oil (petroleum* and kleselguhr.  The oil seems to have taken the place  of charcoal-in gunpowder In supplying  an inflammable material which would  develop a large quantity of gas. The  liquid air was'almost pure oxygen and  tended to promote combustion. The  kleselguhr served the same purpose  that it does' In dynamite." It is a  siliceous earth, used as an absorb*, nt  to hold the nitroglycerin. The cartridges are spoken of technically as  "oxylignite."  They were prepared iu two ways.  First, the' kleselguhr and oil were mixed In a basin, and the liquid air was  added gradually. The resulting paste  was ladled Into the cartridge case,  which was coated with asbestus. prob  ably to check the absorption of heat  from surrounding substances. The second method of preparation -was to  charge the cartridge with kleselguhr  and oil and "add tbe liquid air later.  The second set of cartridges were Incased in sheet lead. -  .".Owing to'the" Intense cold, "the men'  did not care to handle the cartridges  vigorously, and there was difficulty In  attaching detonators and ruses. In  the meantime much of the oxygi*n  evaporated, especially from the cartridges having lead cases. These latter proved'weck'er" than the flrst set.  One of'them missed fire' altogether.  The cartridges were Inserted in holes  30 inches deep In the rock when tired.

The cartridges must  be used within, say, 15 minutes of  their preparation. There is no danger, hence, from "missing fire. But, on  the other hand, It will tie difficult to  fire many "cartridges simultaneously,  and,' strictly" speaking, the cartridges  should be made.on the spot end be In a  very .hard condition. That would  scarcely be possible below ground.

The Topic extends hearty congratulations to Torn Taylor on the event of  his receiving the unanimous nominal inn of the Liberal-Conservalive  convention at It-velstoke on Saturday  hifei". and although it may not. always  be able to see eye to eye with him on  political questions it still has unbound-  'WI confidence in the tionrtUy of bis  purpose and should lie. be the next  j-ejiresfiifativc: fur Hip Kevelstoke  riding it feels sin e he will do all in Ins  power to tueiit tlio confidence reposed  ir_ biui by the  majority.  What, does this no-party politics cry,  this demand for a. union   of   the   best,  men   to   lake   charge,   of   the   affairs  amount, lo, when   it   is   boiled   down.  When examined it is obvious   thai   as  then: are three   or   four   factions,   all  more or less   opposed   to   each   other,  using it. it cannot,  possibly   mean   the  same thing in all their minds, although  tbey  agree  in   using  the  same  catch  words   with   their   mouths.    For    in- |  stance there  is the Cotton party, or as  they prefer to be called the   provincial  party, Ihey are   very   stiong   on   this  point.    Naturally of course   it  f<-!lmv>  that, Mr. Coll on and his dozen   and   a  biilf of late, supporters   in   thu   house,  tin: Deanes, Ihe. Kellies,   the   Posters,  the Hendersons are the good   men   to  whom we are   invited   once   innru   lo  eiitiiist    the   conduct   of   our   alYairs.  And when one looks   around   on   Unpolitical and   business   disorder,   into  which this band of  brilliant  intellects  have succeeded in plunging this  pmv  ince,     words   almost   fail   to   expiess  one's admiration of their   colossal   impudence,    Give us back our portfolios,  our seats in the. house, our comfortable  jobs is just about all that this  cry   for  a union of   good   men   means   in   the  mouths of Mr.   Cotton's   following   of  hungry politicians.    As   long  as   .foe  Martin     was    helping   I his. bund   of  patriots to hold on to   their   majority  and   keep   themselves    in    place   and  power, his' wicked,   sinful   ways   and  methods   suited   them    down   to   the  ground.    They were quite,   willing   to  avail    themselves   of   every    political  dodge  and   trick   that  ho   could   put  them up to.    Hut now that his peculiar  talenls have been employed in turning  them into the cold after n bate twenty  month's enjoyment of   the   sweets   of  oflice, the unspeakable Joseph   is   the  foe against whom   all   good   men   are  bidden rally round   the   Cotton   stun  diird.  Then again there is the capitalist,  faction. Thev dislike party lines be  cause both the parly platforms" are  too democratic to. suit thetn. They  demand a union of the good and true  round the old personal leadership  idea, without any definite platform or  pledges, but instead a lot of vague,  indefinite phrases meaning anything  or nothing, mostly tho latter. To  these people such planks in the Liberal  Conservative platform as the government, ownership of railways and the  eight-hour days are "fads" too revolutionary and impossible even to be  discussed. If such matters had been  discreetly omitted from the Liberal-  Conservative platform and some lofty,  high-sounding talk substituted 'iboiit.  eiuouiaging the progress of the country by inducing the investment of  capital in developing our wonderful  natural resources and so on, there  would have   been   no   trouble   about  parlv line** at all with these gentleman.  Tbey would have all been in line hy  thistime. It. is the platform, not the  party lines, on which thoy cannot find  any rest for the soles of their  fec-l.  Then there are the anti-Marl in  Liberals, the Independents, with man  1 imning on his figure in bis own constituency though what he proposes  lo do, it"returned is not very clear and  .ii ou. Hut the rallying ciy of them  all is "Wo don't want party lines, we  want good men. above all deliver us  from .Joe-Martin. Certainly we want  guod men nnd deliverance, from Joe  Martin.
