The chief business that came  before the city, council last evening  ' was the consideration of the recommendation of the finance committee  that a grant of $1500 be made  toward the maintenancel of the  Nelson General Hospital, and that  a further grant of $500 be made  toward the building -fund of the  same institution. The report of.  the committee was adopted without;  debate. '   * ~*'  ' After the report had been adopted  mayor Fletcher suggested that  aldermen Paterson and Madden  should represent the council at the  approaching meeting of the hospital  society, and a resolution along this  line was moved and adopted.  The board of public works reported: That an 8-inch sewer be  constructed on Baker street from  the Sherbrooke hotel to Fall street./  Witli "reference to the communication from the health officer en-,  closing a list of properties requiring proper sewer connections and  of properties already connected  still using outside privies, your  committee recommend that the necessary notice for sewer connections  be served and such other steps as  may be requisite to carry out the  suggestions of the health officer.  . Tliat Ward street from Mill to  Hoover, be opened up and made'  - passable for teams at an estimated'  cost of $450. y  That a side-walk be laid on the  north side of Carbonate street between Josephine and Hall streets.  That a ditch be opened up on the;  ' north side of Carbonate street from  Hall westerly to catch the water.  -That the lane in block 24, 25 and  20 be fixed so as to make it passable  for teams, the work to be done  under the direction of the city  engineer.

The report was considered clause  by clause and adopted as read with  the exception of the recommendation for a catch basin at thecorner  of Ward and Vernon streets, which  was laid over.  Alderman, Irving, introduced the  annual^road tax by-law.  Alderman Madden objected .to  auy such by-law on the ground that  none but property owners, who  were easy to- get at, were called!  upon to pay such tax. . -.  Alderman Selous suggested that  no commission1 be allowed for the  collection of "taxes from assessed  owners..  The by-law was put through its  several readings and April 1st was  set as the day for payment.  Bylaw No. 92, known as the  cemetery bylaw, received its first  and second readings pro forma.  On motion of alderman Irving,  seconded by alderman Hamilton,  the city assessor was instructed to  proceed with the assessment of the  city for the current year, and that  the assessment roll be returned on  May Oth.  A communication was received  from the Rocky Mountain Rangers  band asking for the return of certain musical instruments in the  possession of other persons. It  was referred to the mayor.  Increase in Civil List.  London, March 11.���In' the house  of commons today sir Michael Hicks-  Beach, chancellor of the exchequer,  when moving the appointment of a  Select  committee to consider the  new civil list conveyed a hint that  an increase on the civil list might  be expected. He said that while  the government's proposals would  be based on the late queen Victoria's  civil list, it must be remembered  that king Edward had a consort  and that he was not only king of  the United Kingdom, but the head  of a world-wide empire. In previous  reigns the parliament had been  asked to pay the debts of a sovereign, but no such applications were  ever made by queen Victoria.  The country might look forward  with confidence to king Edward,  who has for many years occupied  an exceptional position involving  exceptional expenditures. His in-  not large when  flmt of some private  form his  had won the gratira-cMlj^the coun  try. The proposals would . be  framed iri a spirit of justice to the  crown and people.  John Redmond, the Irish leader,  gave notice of his intention to oppose all consideration of the subject  until the government promised to  alter the monarch's anti-Catholic  declaration known as the no popery  oath, but on Mr. Balfour's announcing that it was proposed to  appoint a commission to consider  the matter, Mr. Redmond withdrew  his opposition for the present. A  committee wa9 then appointed.  Dewet Moving Northward.  Bloemfontein, March 10.���General Dewet is reported to be moving  northward steadily at the rate of  twenty-five miles a day with a  view of crossing the railway to the  eastward." He should now be west  of Kroonstadt. Several small commandoes are in possession of the  southeastern portion of the Orange  River Colony. It is impossible not  to be struck with the fact that a  great portion of the former enemies  'of Great Britain iu South Africa  now frankly throw in their lot with  the British.  Companies of, ex-burghers from  Bloemfontein, Kroonstadt and  Brandford are now bearing arms  against the. Boers; They state  their object is not to operate  against their former comrades, but  to defend their homes and property  against marauding bands. Every  town in the Free State occupied by  the British soon will become a  center of British influence extending a long distance in their vicinity.  Over' 13,000 refugees are now within  the British lines, and many of them  demand arms and permission to  take the field. If their requests be  granted, it will be easy to get 2000'  ex-burghers enrolled on the British  side.  "*��� . ''A "���'. :������'������  Botha's Surrender.  Pretoria, March 11.���The result  of the negotiations between lord  Kitchener and general Louis Botha  is anxiously but hopefully awaited.

The "railway from  Lorenzo Marquez to Pretoria is  practically clear of Boers.  Shoemakers Strike.  North Brookfield, Massachus*  etts, March 11.���The strike threatened by the employees of the E. &  E. H. Bacheller Shoe Company, on  account of a ten per cent cut ��� in  wages, was begun today. Only 25  of the 150 hands went to work.  There was an exodus among the  Bacheller shoe workers today, many  of them having secured positions at  other places and others going to  seek work.  Jury Disagreed.  Wichita, Kansas, March 11.���No  verdict was reached by the jury  which last week heard evidence in  the trial of Mrs. Carrie Nation, for  smashing a "joint" here several  weeks ago. The jury stood 7 to 5  for conviction and was discharged  today.        Haven't a Sweet Tooth.  Berlin, March 11.���A bill prohibiting the use of artificial sweetening such' as saccharine, except  when used for reasons of health,  has been submitted, to the federal  council. Artificial sweetening is  taxed 80 marks per kilo.  LI SAYS HE IS POWERLESS  TO RESIST RUSSIA'S EXORBITANT  DEMANDS.  Appeals to Other Powers to Intervene  in China's Behalf���Troops America Will Retain.  London, March 11.���The Times in  its second edition today publishes a  despatch from Shanghai,, dated  March 11, saying, "It is reported  upon trustworthy , authority that  Russia has -notified China that  unless the Marichurian convention  is signed at an early date, she (Russia) will withdraw -the convention  and substitute harder terms in its  place. Li Hung Chiang declared he  is powerless to resist and has  appealed to the United States, Great  Britain, Germany and Japan to  intervene in China's behalf."  Considerable uneasiness is believed  to exist between the Yang Tse  viceroys and Li Hung Chang in  consequence of tlie extreme friction.  ' infantry Companies to Remain.  Pekin, March 11.���Companies A  and B of the Ninth United States  Infantry have been notified that  they are to remain in China. It is  believed that major Robertson,will  command them. Many Americans  here urge the legation to use its influence to have at least two field  .guns and enough artillerymen to  work them left. They "say that  during the siege these guns -wmild  have been more valuable than two  hundred armed' men, and that the  necessity for their use-is liable to  occur again.  The Germans report that in the  recent engagement near Pao Ting  Fu 250 Chinese were killed and  four magazine' guns captured.  -There were no German losses.  Despite the report-that-Li Hung  Chang is seriously ill and that his  life Jiangs by a thread his physicians say that his condition is no  worse than that of any ordinary  man in the same circumstances, and  would not be dangerous except for  his advanced age. They are extremely hopeful of boing able to  bring him around.  Quarters for Troops.  Pekin, March 11.���The question  of the quarters for American troops  remaining in Pekin is still the subject of discussion. Army men favor  the Temple of Agriculture as being  healthier and sufficiently near the  legation for troops to be sent there  in a hurry as an additional guard  should* circumstances arise rendering it necessary. They think the  court's objections are magnifiecL_It  isT^rlik^ly^thlit^th^BBtisir^will  relinquish the Temple of Heaven  and they will certainly long require  the permanent building .being  erected there. A company of infantry easily could be housed in the  Temple of Agriculture and the two  temples are now used for quartermaster's stores. The only other  available place ready is a palace  belonging to one of the princes far  from the legation in the middle of  the Tartar city. This is private  property.  . -  Japanese Diet Prorogued.  Tokio, March 11.���The imperial  diet, which had been prorogued until March 8 th to give the house of  peers an opportunity to assent to  the new taxation bills covering the  expenses of the Japanese expeditionary corps in China, was again  prorogued for five days. If, in the  meantime, the cabinet of marquis  Ito does not overcome the opposition of the house pf peers two  alternatives only wi.iL remain���the  dismissal of the cabinet or a temporary suspension of the constitution. A third prorogation of tlie  diet is not permissible under the  constitution.  Duel at the Church Door.  Halifax, March 11.���A family  feud at Shubenacadie, 40 miles from  here, culminated today in a bloody  shooting affray. The participants  were David, Emach and Melrose  Ettinger on one side and three  Lantz brothers on tho other. The  trouble started some time ago over  a disputed piece of land. The Lantz  brothers; were leaving a church today, when the Ettmgers opened  fire with revolvers. One of the  Lantz brothers fell at the first fire.  His brothers returned the fire and  two of their assailants were shot  and Eriiach probably, fatally. The  wounds of the others are serious  but not] dangerous.'

Eight Bodies Have Been Recovered From  " the Wreck and Twenty-five  Reported Missing.  Chicago, March 11.���Aboiler of  the Dorernus -laundry,. occupying  part of the - old Waverly theater  building on West Madison street,  exploded today, destroying the  building. In a few moments the  mass of debris caught fire. Eight  bodies have been recovered from  the ruins, six persons are still missing and at least 25 men and girls  were so seriously injured that many  of them will die. -7  All of the dozen or more little  stores attached to the Waverly  theatre and facing 'on Madison  street were wrecked by the explosion. In a restaurant owned by  Peter Dean, one of the fatalities is  supposed   to have occurred.    The  TtmT^f'the^^tSurSnt^^as"-almost-  opposite the boiler. Mr. Dean, his  wife and two boys were eating, at  the time. The explosion blew in  the rear wall of the little establishment and buried the Dean family.  All were extricated except William,  a ten year old boy, who'is believed  to be buried in the ruins. The windows along Madison street were  blown to atoms and a number of  pedestrians were cut and' bruised  by the showers of glass. A Madison street cable car passing the  building at the time of the explosion was almost blown from- the  track by the force of the explosion.  The passengers were thrown into a  panic, no one being injured, however. Five girls working in the  paper mache works of J. E. Young,  occupying a part of the building,  narrowly escaped death. The plant  was a complete wreck and: the roof  blown in, but only, one of"''"the employees was injured. The cause of  the explosion is a mystery and as  the engineer was killed, it may never  be known. -   A  Bubonic Plague Spreading.  Cape Town, March 11.���The bubonic plague is developing seriously  in Cape Town. Fifteen new cases  were officially reported today and  97 other persons were isolated because of having come into contact  with victims of the disease. Today  two colored persons who had been  attacked by the plague died in the  streets of Cape Town. A European  died while being removed to the  hospital. The malady is reaching  the more prosperous classes and it  has been necessary to remove to  the hospital the entire family of a  gentleman.  ARRANGEMENTS PERFECTED  BRANDON AND GOLDEN CROWN  TO RESUME.  Satisfactory Reorganization Plans Have  Been Arranged Whereby Necessary  Capital Is Secured.  Rossland, March 11.���A plan has.  just been perfected whereby the  treasury of the Brandon and Golden  Crown Mining Company will be. restored and will enable operations to  be resumed shortly on an extensive-  scale. Owing to the slump in mining shares in Eastern Canada, the  directors were unable to dispose of  any more treasury stock and in consequence operations were suspended  -last November.- Prior to that date  considerable ore shipments to the  Trail smelter had been made.  The freight and treatment rate was  such that the directors did not feel  justified m paying it any longer,  especially as the . smelter company  declined to reduce the figures unless a contract for a specified tonnage was entered into or unless the  entire output of the mine was sent  to Trail for one year ��� at a fixed  rate.  The reorganization just effected  has taken a different form from  that usually adopted. . Instead of  the company being reconstructed  and made assessable, as is the practice, the original subscribers have  "entered into a written agreement  in virtue' of which they have agreed  to" contribute or surrender to the  treasury 40 per cent of their .original holdings,*, and as the subscrib-.  ers' stock has been in a pool.since  1897 this agreerhent was thus more  easily accomplished, as the promoters'' stock was riot .scattered;  By the plan .adopted ,by the pro-|  moters.two .important things-have  been"accomplished���first, the saving  of the cost of. reconstruction, and  secondly, saving the purchaser ^of  treasury shares of an extra assess-  riient.  The original subscribers have  thus shown evidence of their good  faith as Avell as their high opinion  of the future of the property, which  is regarded as one of the most  promising in the Boundary. With  the treasury on hand and the forty  per cent, contributed by the original  subscribers it will bring the shares  in the treasury to 450,000.;  Negotiations for the sale of a  large block of the treasury are now  in progress, and the proceeds will  not only be sufficient to pay off the  floating debt, but will provide  sufficient funds for working capital  so that when   ore  shipments_are.  resumed it will be on a permanent  basis. ���       -  Kaslo Votes the Bonus.  Kaslo, March 11.���The property  owners of Kaslo today voted.on two  bylaws, one to grant a $50,000 bonus and the other to grant exemption from taxation for ten years.to  a smelter to be erected. Accompany is now organized,' to operate  the smelter. These municipal privileges are open to the first one .who  fulfills the conditions, work to commence by October 1st next. Kaslo  as. the center of a great silver-lead  district of British Calumbia is destined shortly to become a great  smelting point. The construction  of a smelter here will relieve the  difficulty under which the silver-  lead mining industry is'nefw laboring. Today's meeting was unanimously in favor of the bonus and  only two votes were recorded  against exemption.  Gave Him Knockout Drops.  New York, March 11.���Charles  Thompson, 17 years old, the postal  telegraph messenger who was taken  to a hospital yesterday suffering  from the supposed effects of knockout drops, alleged to have been administered in a disorderly house at  Bowery and Prince streets, died  today.

London, March 11.���A remarkable,  story of male impersonation, recalling the Murray Hill case bf New  York, was revealed in apolicecourfc  here today in connection with an  arrest for alleged money frauds.

She  says.she was married at 15, taught  school and then thought there were  better chances of advancement as a  man. Eventually she married a  lady's maid, with whom she lived  14 years.  Wants a Divorce.  �� Paris, March 11.���Cecelie Phelps,  of Richmond, Va., a niece of W. W.  Phelps,' is collecting evidence in  Paris on whicli to sue for a divorce  from her husband, Paul Machion.  She was married first to the Italian  count Kieranas. After her divorce  the Frenchman followed her to  America, and they were married, at  Hackensack.: ���She said to the  Journal correspondent: "Machion  sought money from me all the time,  like " Castellane did from. .Anna  Gould. Frenchmen like to live off  women. My husband .thought I  had enormous plantations, and  when I did not give him money  he would get angry and illtreat me.  I cannot advise my countrywomen  to marry a Frenchman as a rule.  When I get the evidence and the  divorce'I am going to Brazil to  iive."

Washington,    March    11.���The  long-expected     answer   from   the  British government to . the . state  department's communication reciting the action of the senate upon  the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, was received at noon today.  Lord Pauncefote,   the   British ambassador, already   had   acquainted ' secretary  Hay with the fact that he .had received a communication from his  government^on the subject, and it  is believed it has been in his possession   for   several   days.   . Lord  Pauncefote came' to ithe state.department at noon by appointment.  He brought   the answer with him  and read it to secretary Hay.    It *  was in the form of an instruction -  from lord Lansdowne, the British  minister of  foreign affairs, to lord  Pauncefote, and of this instruction *  he left a copy with" secretary Hay.  The secretary and the ambassador were closeted for half an hour.  At the conclusion of the conference  it was stated that the instruction  tov lord" Pauncefote was to notify  the   government   of    the    United  States tliat the British government  did not see its way clear to the  acceptance   of    the    amendments.  These .amendments were treated in  ��� detail at some length in argumentative fashion, the purpose of the  British government being to show  that it had sound reason for declining to accept them.    After disposing of the details, the note concluded with an expression of regret,  -that such a course had been'forced  ,np6n the British* government.  \  There was nothing iii the .nature  of a.couriter>pr6position nor was/in-  opening left for further action by  the British government. It Willi  stated that if there was to be a further attempt to amend the Clayton-  Bulwer treaty so as to authorize  the United States tp construct a  waterway across the isthmus then  it was for the United States to  make the overtures. The British'  government simply dropped the  matter at that point. Secretary  Hay carried the communication to _.  the White House to talk with the  president as to the future action of  the department. The impression  prevails that there will be no immediate action looking towards the  negotiation of the treaty.  Maher Agrees to Tackle Sharkey.  New Yoiuc,  March__ll.���Thomas   Sharkey has finally found an opponent who is willing to block his  bull-like rushes and terrific swings.  Peter Maher lias accepted the  sailor's challenge' for a limited-  round bout, and the two  Irish pugilists will be matched during the coming week. The match  is practically on now, and all that  remains to cinch the affair is the  signing of the articles und posting  of forfeits. The Louisville Athletic  Club has already offered a purse for  the bout, to take place next month  which will probably bo acceptable  to both parties.  Agricultural Machinery Exempt.  St. Pkteusijuiio, Marcli 11.���  Answering a telegraphic enquiry  from an American company, Mr.  Charlemagne Tower, the United  States ambassador, cabled that  agricultural machinery was not  affected by the recent application  of the Russian tariff law, whicli excepted such machinery from the  provisions of clause 2'of paragraph  107, and placed it in a separato  clause.      j   Gold in Strong-Box.

lately in endeavoring to arrive at

next seven years, and their findings
place the total anywhere from
$25,000,000 to $50,000,000. If anything like the same liberal encouragement was given to lead smelting

discussion took place upon the
amendments proposed by the provincial government to the present
School Act. While overy little was
said with respect to the increased

place 'upon the corporation, the
opinion appeared tobegeneral that,

the amending Act whereby the

voices   a   sentiment   in   the   East

' ests of an individual coal company
ahead of the general welfare of an

Advocates of government construction and ownership of railways do not receive much consideration at meetings called in the interest of railway promoters who
desire government construction
first and private ownership afterwards. At Vancouver the other
evening the government ownership
men were told in plain terms that
the short line from the coast to the
Boundary could only be undertaken by two companies—the ■ Canadian Pacific or the V. V. & E. and
its unknown backers. Government
ownership of. railways is never con-
. ceded to be practical when a fat
railway subsidy is in sight.

for and against the granting of a
charter for the'building of a branch
of the Great Northern into South

the facts and enable a correct estimate to be formed of the probable

Trade returns show that Canada
imports three times as much from
Germany as she sends her.   Iu the
year 1900 her -imports from Germany amounted to $7,382,000.   The
chief-articles that came from the
Teuton were cement,  cottons, velvets,   drugs,   fancy   articles, furs,
glass, gloves, iron, white and, red
lead and silks.     Of the. $2,200,000
worth of <goods which" Canada sent
to Germany-more than half represented the value of food stuffs/ Two-
thirds of this, however, consisted
of   Indian corn from the United
States, which passed. through Canada'in transit.-   The United States
commercial agent at Moncton believes that   the   articles that the
Canadians purchase from Germany
might just as well come from the
United States.   American commercial travelers are needed in Canada.
The present time is favorable, as
Canadian-merchants say that their
goods-are-excluded from the German markets, and there -is a consequent reluctance to buy German

The Brass Band Question,
To the Editor of The Tribune.—
We hear a* good*' deal of tlie Smelter
Band and of its being in active existence, etc. If there is such an organization in an* efficient condition
I must say it has missed many excellent opportunities lately of proving its claim to public consideration.
For instance, at the funeral obsequies of her late majesty, the R. M.
R. and Salvation Army bands voluntarily turned out and donated
their efforts in making the affair a
complete success. Again, on the
departure of the last detachment pf
recruits for Sbuth Africa, the B. M.
R. band, although somewhat de
pleted in numbers through some of
its members having gallantly joined
their patriotic brethren in South
Africa, turned out and gave the
boys a rousing send-off. At the
smoker given by the trades' unions
for the benefit of the recruits, at
the rink and on many other public
occasions the R. M. R. band has in
my opihiiiion practically demonstrated a high state of efficiency
for the1 number of men engaged. If
the Smelter Band is not a myth,
and if there is not a dog-in-the-
manger somewhere with regard to
tlie instruments properly belonging
to the city, I should like to be informed of it.       Gkorgb S. Beer.

Savings Bank Branch  OURRKNT RATK OF INTEREST PAID.  ^^^^���py>������������^�����������  A MONSTER LOCOMOTIVE.  Tho New York  Central Railroad  has .just put into service six engines  that are the largest passenger locomotives in the world.    It is  pre-'  dieted that they   will   be   able to  make a record of 125 miles an hour.  No. 2980 is to be put on the Empire  State Express, one   of   the   fastest  trains in the world.    The   new  engine is expected to soon   outdo  the  famous old   "999's"   record   of   94  miles an hour.    It   expected that  '���2980," when   it   is   fairly   shaken  down, will be able to make a record  of never being behind time except  in an actual snow blizzard.   While  her builders say they will be   sat-s-  fied with such a   record,   railroad  men throughout   the   country   are  looking to the big engine to make a  startling speed exhibition   of anywhere from  105   to   125   miles an  hour.    "2980" has some remarkable  proportions, which were given in a  recent number of the Railroad Gazette.    The engine proper is 30  1-2  feet long.    Including pilot and tender, the total distance covered on  the track by the locomotive   is   50  feet.  The two driving wheels are 79  inches high, 7 inches taller than a  six-foot man. The roof of the cab  rises 15 feet above the track. The  firebox is so big that it looks more  like that of a big stationary engine. The weight of the engine  alone, without the tender, is 17(5,-  ���>u000 pounds, or 88 tons. A peculiar  feature of the engine is the placing  of its ten wheels. Just behind the  four mammoth drivers are two  smaller traction, wheels under the  cab. In ordinary running these  carry most of the weight of the  cab aud firebox. :-Biit when on an  up grade, witli a heavy load to pull  and the driving wheels are slipping,  a new mechanism is used. By. the  turn of. a lever in the cab 10,000  pounds' weight is shifted from the  -traction wheels to the driving  wheels. This makes the drivers  grip the track with just so much  added power.  The practical demonstration of  usefulness of this arrangement is  .daily seen on the West Albany Hill.  Any of the old engines hauling a  six-car passenger train west of  Albany had a helper up this grade.  The new type, engine No. 2980 for  example, puts on the traction increase!' and, unaided, makes time  with six cars. Mr. A. M. Waite,  superintendent of motive power, ���  was the one who designed this  engine. He says that while it may  make- a new world's record for:  ^speedHt-wasmot^specially-designedr  for that purpose. His aim was to]  build an engine that could.make-  schedule time under all conditions  of weather, head winds, extreme  cold and snow, and make up time  for, delays. When . trains are  scheduled up to sixty miles an hour,  as in the case of some of the Central's express trainsj it is evident  that an engine miist be'capable of  running far above sixty to come up  to the requirements under; all circumstances.

THE   CUltKENT   RATE   OF    INTUKKST   ALLOWED.  A Foolish Speech.  Salt Lake Tribune.  The speech of senator Morgau'bn  his resolution to declare the Clayton-Bulwer' treaty abrogated was,  in our judgment, iii execrable taste,  for the reason that- enlightened nations have established certain rules  for dealing with treaties, {and those  rules have govorned so long that  they operate as unwritten laws.  The fact that the Clayton-Bulwer.  treaty was negotiated shows that  there was a time when our government acknowledged ithe claims of  Great Britain in the country bordering on the Caribbean sea. If, .iii  the judgment of -this country, no  such claims any longer exist, then  the decent way is to notify Great  Britain that this country desires  its . abrogation. To get up in the  senate- and metaphorically twist  the British lion's tail and to makp  threats Of what wp will do jf.the  ]}on dops not likp the twisting, ih a  border ruffian proceeding altogether  unworthy the senate of the United  States. That spirit which loves to  drive this nation into war and then  ���.to denounce everything done because of the war is not one which  this country should either follow"  LEFT-HANDED  CHILDREN.  Professor P. W. Smedley, of the  child study department of the Chicago public schools, has been making  a scientific study of the action  between   right and left handedness  and    intellectuality   in    children.  After   many   experiments   he announces his conviction that right-  handed children are the brightest.  He has found that a large percentage of bad boys are ambidexterous.  Pupils whose speech is affected and  who find difficulty in articulation  are most often left-handed.    The  explanation is this : The right hand  is controlled from the left side ot  the brain and the left hand from  the right side of the brain.    Speech  is controlled by the right side of  the brain.   The over-development  of one hand or the other is thought  in this way to affect the speech.  Professor Smedley is guarded in his  statements, saying that it will take  a long time to work out the problem  of the connection between the hand  and the brain.   He does not believe  that dexterity is directly connected  with   intelligence,   but that it is  noticeable through its effect upon  speech.   He admits there are many  exceptions.  Harry B. Couner, a twelve-year-  old boy pupil of the Mount Albion  school in Pittsburg, is a notable exception    to    professor    Smedley's  theories.   More than that he presents a physiological  study more  perplexing than the mere relation  ;of ambidexterity to intellectuality.  Harry is a bright boy, an exceptionally apt pupil, notwithstanding  that he is just now learning the use  pf his right, hand in penmanship,  and he is a good boy) too.   So iu  these two points he belies the deductions of the Chicago educator.  The   teachers   iu    Mount    Albion  school never saw the Connor boy's  prototype.   When he first came to  school there was only one way he  could write; that was upside down  with his left hand.   The brain cell  that guides his left hand, it would  seem, according to professor Smedley's   reasoning,   is    reversed,    so  everything in that part of the boy's  mind must be topsy-turvy.   When  he was four or five years of age he  began to write.   His parents were  astonished that he formed all the  characters upside down.   He would  begin writing from the right side of  the paper andNwrite to the left,,  using-the-left-hand^entirelyf^^^���r  Patient efforts  were made to direct his hand in the usual way, but  to no purpose.   He couldn't help  writing   upside   down; any   more  than he could help using the left  'hand.     He . learned   tp   form   the:  characters perfectly, and since he  has been attending school he has  acquired the vertical style of penmanship.    His chirography is unusually   legible.     Harry's   teacher  says he is learning to use his right;  hand nicely, though he cannot handle the pen with the same facility  as in his own peculiar way.   The  boy not only,writes iipside down,  but   draws in   the same way.   A  picture of  a battleship which he  drew shows some draughting talent.   Instances where a child learns  the alphabet backward before being  able to master it frontward are not  rare, and, indeed, there are cases  on record ih the local schools where  it was with difficulty that a particular scholar was taught not to spell  hindend foremost, as it were.     One  little girl invariably spells saw so  that it reads was, and vice versa.  Harry Conner is the only boy on  record that writes left handed and  upside   down   at   the  same   time.  And the queerest part of it is that  he doesn't know why he does it.  Kid McCoy a Globe Trotter,  NB\y York, M^fch 5.���Th$t vest-  less soul of the pugilistiq arena,  ".Kid" ]\JcCoy, will again shake the  dust of Gotham from his feet. He  has engaged passage on the Kaiser  Wilhelm der Grosse, which sails for  England next Tuesday. McCoy  only just arrived from/ abroad, and  was seen again on the Rial to last  Monday for. .the''first time. It was  said at the time that he had come  Nelaon Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M. LAY, Manager.  back to see if there was anything  doing with Charles Mitchell. As  usual, McCoy challenged all the  famous heavy weights, and then  subsided into obscurity. It is possible that his welcome home lacked  the warmth that he had- expected,  and he became ruffled' in consequence. It is even rumored that,  like William Waldorf Astor, he may  renounce his allegiance to a country  that fails to appreciate him. Among  his friends McCoy is now known as  the "Globe Trotter."
