Array Fire Department  Investigation Proceeds ��������� Civic > Property  Used at Chiefs House���������Further Serious Charges Preferred���������Committeeman Attacks l Call."  "God Save the King and Queen  At the investigation last Friday the evidence  brought out the fact that a heater boiler had been  taken from No. 1 Fire Hall and installed in the  Chief's new residence as the main factor in an up-  to-date hot water system to keep the ehill of winter from the,genial chief. The facts are as follows :  When the city purchased the big auto-propelled  Fire Engine for No. 1 Hall it became neeess-.-.ry to  . install an auxiliary heater in the basement t >' keep  fc/ the steam in the engine up ready to respond to  an alarm,at any tune. The Chief ordered onet  from the Eastern states which post $338.00, this  one was never used but is still lying at the rear  of No. 1 Hall. He also ordered one from E. G.  Prior, the heater alone costing $130, this was installed but owing to the low ceiling in the base-  ment it was difficult to clean "the Hues, without  ^ allowing the fires to go out and letting the steam  go down on the engine. This heater carried 140  lbs. steam and was practically new. It was removed and the Chief Engineer made a water tube  boiler in its place, the "'Prior" heater being taken  to the Chief's house, and there installed by the  Chief En'gineer and machinist at the expense of  the city. The bare heater cost the city $130 and-  the cost of installation must have~ been considerable. ;  ������. In addition to this the Chief found it highly desirable to install a vaeeumn cleaning system. This  was accomplished with the kind assistance of the  department blacksmith and the tank off .the chemi-  T cal engine of No. 8 Fire Hall, "this chemical Was a  Ik combination chemical and hose wagon but for  some reason the Chief took- objection to the combination affair and had the chemical tank,removed and this subsequently found. a .resting  place in the Chief's home, where no doubt ty will  do yoeman service as a dust collector.  These things are treated lightly, by the "World"  f the Mayor and Co., and on' their face may seem  ^unimportant as a public body is usually looked  upon as legitimate prey for all������and sundry, but  perhaps a better way to view the matter would be  to ask oneself the question "What.would a buai-  j ness concern da to a foreman who would take a -  good boiler from the premises and   cart it off  to his private .residence and there install it at  *the expense of the Company for whom he worked?"   Let the reader answer that question for  [himself or herself, and then ask why should the  (employee of the city he treated differently from  }that of a private Company.

'   --; '" ~  *:*���������&  THE CORONATION  Chief Engineer Forsythe was subjected fc> a  severe cross-examination at Tuesday's meeting  ��������� by Mr. Craig the solicitor for the Department.  Mr. Craig endeavored to draw from Mr. For-  Jsythe an admission that the heater-boiler taken  ��������� from No. 1 Hall to the Chief's house was an old  'discarded affair, but was unsuccessful so-far as  /the Engineer swore that it was in first-class shape  and hehadsuggested to theChiefthatitbe sold  j together with the totally unused $338 boiler laying  at the rear of No. 1 Hall and tbat with the proceeds a marine boiler be purchased.   Needless to  [say his advice was not accepted-  Mr. Craig and the Mayor Bought to show  [that Mr. Forsythe was giving evidence out of  grudge to the Chief.   This was denied by Mr.  [Forsythe.  ALD. EAM8AT SLATES "CALL"  We are this week to celebrate one of the most  solemn occasions in the history of a people''������ viz.*  the CORONATION OF. & MONARCH.  1' To some the event has no significance but to-  nil thinking men, whatever may he their opinions  it is an event of greatest national moment-  King George will he formally acknowledged  as the supreme representative of responsible Government.  His office is a high one and carries with it a  grave responsibility. And while he does not exercise absolute power in his own right, yet he is the  personification of government authority.  It is most fortunate that on this occasion the  people as one man can rejoice because of the  noble qualities visible in the character and life  of both King George and Queen Mary. Both are,  strong believers in the old British morality. This  is a splendid asset in a ruler, especially in this  age when there is such a tendency to introduce  th&loose morals of continental Europe. ������,,.���������_  y' Our beloved King ind Queen have already exhibited .a strong inclination to the morals of the  "old school "land already, we learn, many reforms  have been introduced into court circles because  of the expressed wish of the monarehs.   >  The occasion will also be one where the -patriotic sentiments of the nation should be and will  be deeply aroused, not because of the personal  value only bf our beloved monarch, but because  of the general trend of our national history towards righteousness and liberty.  There are many things not entirely free from  fault in our social and industrial life, but on the  whole our national life is towards justice and  equality and the present eveut should rouse the  latent patriotism in the breast of all true British'  subjects.  ��������� K1U1IMM I M'HWM'H"H   l ������H 11 M'l l K 13 H llll 11 It &  i)    Producing a copy of the last   issue   of   the  ���������/"Call" Aid. Ramsay read therefrom certain paragraphs relating to "unnecessary delay; in the"in-  |vestigation.'' H^^proceeded to state that he was  I anxious as far as he is concerned to give a square  [ deal to all concerned.   We accept this fully but  [do not hesitate to say that others may not be of  the same temperament.  For instance at a recent  [banquet the chairman of the investigating com-  [mittee, Aid. Enright, stated that he "intended to  pee that the Chief got justice" and that he "was  'sorry an alderman should   bring   such   trivial  charges" or words to that effect.   We doubt if  any man who has his mind made up before hand  [could be impartial in judgment.  Aid. Ramsay also stated that in his opinion  the "Call" should refrain from making any com-  fment on the evidence. We regret that we must  I 'differ-; with the7 general alderman and claim the  kright to comment on all evidence WHICH HAS  IBEEN FORMALLY OFFERED.  Some weeks ago we published the findings of  the grand jury and the remarks of Justice Gregory, in which the City Council, the Police Commission and the License Commission were urged  to secure a better enforcement of the law.    '  Many of the citizens are puzzled at the situa- v  tion which obtains in the city in. this regard and'  a word of explanation would not be amiss. /  '  The License Commissioners are earnestly de- ' <  sirous of enforcing the  law,  but claim that it.,  comes under the jurisdiction of the Police and in  any case have no private fund from which to -  draw for costs' of getting evidence except a paltry  $250 per annum. ' '  The Police Commissioners are  also desirous of* _.  enforcing the law. but claim it is not their business -  to ferret out evidence and state that if the evidence is given to them they will prosecute.   .   Y ,  ��������� The function of the council is to supply funds  for administration of justice and when appealed/  to by the License Commissioners for funds-they/!  replied, get the police.      *' " r  '   Thus while each body is anxious to see good -  results, this'slight misunderstanding is undermin-  \  ing the efficiency of all departments to a certain ,  degree. '  Recognizing these facts Aid. Stevens moved at  the last meeting of Council that the three bodies  meet together in conference and clear up theiro  misunderstandings in a businesslike way.  ' .For this he was the victim of a most bitter <>  . and accrimonous attack by the Mayor. "  The Mayor stating that the motion waa tanta- .  mount to a personal attack on him, etc., etc. * ���������  As a matter of fact he was not referred to int st  the, remotest degree, nor was either of the other   ,  bodies, but simply a request made that the three  bodies meet to confer.y<*      - ^- -  ^ ^ ,,'���������"  i /While these disputes continue the,, law is^beingy  defied in many quarters as was evidenced by hum- \  erou s instances given in .open, council by various aldermen of existence of "blind pigs" in  their localities.  We do not wish to be unfair to any publit '  body or individual; but claim the right of speak-  < ing plainly on all topics of public mo :ment.  It is a matter of vital importance to the citi-; '  zens that tbe law be vigorously enforced and that  when necessary detective work be done to bring  those guilty to justice' and our contention is that '  the different departments should seek to work in  harmony with each other.  We sincerely regret that His Worship should  haye taken such a bitter stand on this matter, he  having refused absolutely to meet" with any of  the bodies in joint conference and further threatened to veto any action taken.        l  The public will be inclined to construe this  to mean that His Worship does not wish to meet  the issue but prefers' that it proceed along present unsatisfactory lines.  Our Police force are second to none on tha  coast and it is not lack of willingness, hut simply  misunderstanding as to jurisdiction which ia cau#-  ing the trouble. : ^���������Y  Y'f-  7,\\7?'i|  ? ���������  .*:  '<���������-' ^"ix-.t * '.I  i -   *\ ������* 1  ,-V  h ���������<!

King again brought to the attention of tha  council the hopeless negligence of the B. C. Electric Railway in regard to the wretched provision  made for transportation over Grandview lines and  also that the Company has frequently promised  redress but have done nothing to really relieve  the situation, and the cars are hopelessly crowded.  He urged the council to take action and bring  the Company tb tinie. ^  His Worship suggested that he, with the committee, would bring it to the attention of the  Company.  CLOSING EXHIBITION GATES  nnnmntuMMitmiii hhhiiiiiiiiiiiihiihh iinimimminiitnn������  This was the subject of much discuussion at  the council last Monday evening.     :  7A.request-had been made by the Exhibition  Board to be allowed to close the gates until the  strike was settled. A motion was presented to  grant the request.  His-Worship the Mayor left the chair and  dragged into the question the whole strike proh-  ���������lcm. which made it a" rather touchy question to  handle. His Worship slated those favoring the  move-as being desirous of opposing the strike and  said it would incite them to riotY  There were several speeches on both sides of  the question but, outside of the Mayor, the discussion was confined fairly well to the question  in the closing the gates^  There was no intention to interfere in any way  with parties tia this dispute but simply to facilitate  the completion of the Exhibition buildings which is  absolutely necessary in order to have them ready  for the coming exhibition. It was finally ordered  that if the exhibition found it impossible to work  their men without interference by Wednesday  that the11 gates be closed during working hours  only. .   .

Nonconformity in Great Britain l������ Not  Holding Ita Own;  London, .June -8.���������The Westminster  Gazette, a sound Liberal paper with  warm Free Church sympathies, recently published figures taken from  official sources showing that Nonconformity in England and Wales is  steadily declining.  From these statistics it is seen, that  for four years the membership of the  Baptist church has shown a steady  decrease. In 1906 the Baptist membership was 434,741, more than 16,-  300 higher than -today. Yet churches  have increased by 146 and seating  accommodation by,41,000 sittings. In  nearly every instance the machinery  and equipment have been improved,  while the' membership has declined,  crease, as has happened for'five years  in succession. The total decrease in  the five years ,is 13,120, or about 2.4  per cent Primitive.'Methodists, United Methodists and Calvinistic Methodists all show decreases.' Small increases are shown by Presbyterians,  Moravians, and t the' Society of  Friends. The Anglican Church in the  last three - years, has increased its  communicants by. 141,005.  Speaking of the causes which may  account for the decline in the free  churches, the Westminster Gazette  says':  "Nonconformity in the small towns  and villages has been affected by the  changing conditions, of rural life, by  emigration, aiid by a decrease in the  prosperous small tradesmen. Wesleyan Methodists, again, are not sat-  . The Congregationalist decrease "has  been less than that of the Baptists. In  1907, its membership was 459,663, or  4853 less than today. The Wesleyan  connection has again suffered a de-  isfled with the regulations governing  the close system of membership. Baptists and Congregationalists, tnv.j.tlte  other hand, realize that the inadequate stipends���������often irregularly paid  ���������of their ministers impose drawbacks  which sap the best life of their men."  But the principal causes can be found  in the use made of the pulpit for po-,  litical purposes, and that in the interests of one political party, and of the  subjects far removed from'gospel  truths, introduced hy preachers in the  hope of drawing congregations with  "itching ears."      ~  Statistics show that 141 Baptist  paBtorB in England and Wales get stipends under $375 a year; 26 receive  less than $500; 706 less than $750;  1025 less than $1250, while only 164  get more than the last mentioned  sum.  Of these, 23 get $2500 a year and  17 get more than that sum. Fgures  dealing.with the incomes of Congregationalist ministers show a similar  state of affairs.  - ���������  -     \     .  A REMARKABLE DISCOVERY.  There have been heavy landslips re-'  cently, on the cliffs to the east of  Brighton. boy, who crawled to the  edge of the cliff to look over, saw the  mouth of an urn projecting from the  newly exposed face of the cliff. /Another boy,clung to' his heelB, and he  hung oven the edge of the cliff 80 feet  above the water, dug out the urn, and  brought it upYuninjured. The urn,  which has, been secured; by theYmuB-  eum authorities, is pronounced to be  a remarkable feature bf design and ornament, and,a rare specimen.

The water was as  clear as a bell, arid I didn't have any  difficulty at all in finding the hull,  although she was half-overed .with  Band. But I had all thoughts of her  scared out of me in short order. I had  crawled through some of her rigging  and wreckage to go down in the hold���������  dangerous thing to do, but I couldn't  help it. I was getting along nicely,  and had the hatch almost, broken  through, when I saw a shadow fifteen  feet long above me.5 I knew it was a'  Bhark, and 1 was badly scared. Of  course, I commenced working my way  back as soon as possible, but I wasn't  quick enough, jaws open wide- and  wicked eyes gleaming like sin, the  brute came at me slowly. And I could  not get out; because" the way I had  come was the way to his jaws���������he was  on the wrong side for me. I was in  mortal terror lest he go at my tube,  but he had eyes for bigger game. There  was but one thing to do, so I drew my  knife���������luckily it was a good ten-inch  blade���������and waited. It was my first experience with sharks, and I was nervous, but the thought that my life depended on no one but me kept my head  clear. He came at me suddenly, with  a rush, and turned almost on his tack,  so as to give his scissor jaw a chance.  That was my chance, and I gave it to  him twice in the throat, slashing as  much as I could.  The water was red in a minute, and  as I threw myself on my face I just  prayed he would swim off to clear  water. He did, I guess, because things  were quiet for a while, and as soon as  my heart stopped pounding long enough for me to ge my breath, I commenced to feel my way back again  through the maze of woodwork, spars,  wreckage and old cordage through  which I had crept to get at the interior of the hull. 11 was slow work, and  lazy red as the water was, I was afraid  to do much cutting of ropes* for fear  of cutting my own line.

Name.  Address.  .MONTREAL June 19th.���������The scientific discussion which has been waxing, warm of late as to whether'it'  would-be possible vto make the,St.'  Lawrence river an all the year round  navigable stream was given a new  fillip this week when Dr.' Olgar Man-  heim, * consulting engineer on rivers  and harbors to the Norweigian government, who is finishing a tour of in-  spection of the principal. waterways  of; this continent, suggested that Jt  might become practicable,tovpay more  attention to summer conditions on  Canada's great river than wasting  time theorizing about what might be  done in winter.  The discussion was originally started when a report'to the Government  by Or. Howard T. Barnes, Professor  of Physics at McGill University, and  world famous as an ice expert, was  made public, Dr. Barnes said winter  navigation of the St. Lawrence was  quite possible. Engineers, rivermen  and others split on his opinion. Some  stood with him, some against. Then  Dr. Manheim came along and turned  the public mind to summer navigation  with a brand new theory. Dr. Manheim believes that millions now spent  in dredging may be saved and that the  low water period in the autumn may  be entirely eliminated..  "I do not know whether It has even  been suggested in this country," said  he, "but I believe" that regulation or  conservation of the water would solve  the proSlem far more cheaply and  lastingly than by dredging. When 1  was in Cornwall I took a little motor  boat and went up to the fot of the  Long Sault.. rapids, where I understand it is proposed to4 dam the St.  Lawrence for the, purpose of providing water power to the towns on the  Canadian and American shores. It is  a gigantic proposition they have there,  and one I think whicii might be follow-  ed all along, the. St. Lawrence as far  as Montreal. I do not mean that the  damming should be done particularly  for water power development, but for  bettering navigation. The dam at  Long Sault I believe will make that  part of the river into a quiet navigable  stream, instead of the dangerous passage it is,now. It will not divert any  'water from the river, but will hold it  back and thus regulate the depth for  miles to-the ��������� westward.-  "The time will come when similar  works will be required at other points  on the St. Lawrence; that is to say,  regulating dams will have to be built  toYconserve the water and maintain  a high enough level for the navigation  or large vessels."  *   *    *  CHINESE   RIDE   CANADIAN  FASHION.  *A^************************'  * It 1111 UK 1 IU 111 H t H t 8 '���������  i  (Good Load  W* D.

Major Rost, of the Indian Medical  Service, at Rangoon, Burma, claims to  have discovered a cure for leprosy. In  a report on the .subject he states that  after a research into the bacteriology  of leprosy extending over seven years  he has succeeded in Isolating from  three cases of leprosy an acid fast  bacillus which possesses a eertain peculiar characteristic resembling morphologically the bacillus of leprosy.  Of ten cases in which the treatment  has been adopted two recovered, two  improved greatly, the remnants - of the  disease being very slight, and the .remaining six improved in a remarkable  manner, injection of vaccine in nine  cases being the only treatment adopted. Surgeon-General Lukis, C. S.

There is a spirit of unrest amongst  thinkers throughout the Empire respecting its solidity and its future.  During the next twenty-five years  Great Britain and its overseas dependencies will have to solve many international problems, complex and varied.  United action towards their solution  by Great Britain, Canada, Australia,  New Zealand, South Africa, Will mean  a successful conclusion. The building  of a solid imperial front for the years  to come must _be accomplished today.  Yet, despite the verbal froth of imperialism, effervescing in five continents, little that is practical can be observed. Loyal sentiments and Empire  talk are handsome rubber bands, only  to be dissolved at the first feeling of  commercial warmth elsewhere. In the  past, Great Britain has been able to  hold ite Empire together largely by  the spirit of kith and kin, by the love  of the Motherland, by sending its sons  and daughters to pioneer in every corner' bit the j globe. It. has held Em-  plr etbgetherlargely because London  is the world's .monetary entcre, and  because the overseas dominions perforce 'have drawn their financial  muscle from the world's metropolis. It  has 'traded^With these dominions as it  has traded also with foreign countries.  In pioneering lands there ls a tendency to overlook history. As generation succeeds' generation, there is ah  aptitude tb forget thafr ancestors were  English, or Irish, or Scotch or Welsh.  There sometimes arises a disposition  to regard British loaning power as  a right of the borrower rather than a  choice of the lender. .To-day we may  well ask whether Great Britain and  its dominions are making individual  collective efforts to string together  the links of Empire In a chain which  knows no break. Canada is in the  position' to lead the way either to  consolidation or disintegration.  Forty years ago,' one of Great Britain's gifts to Canada was the Canadian North-West. There in years to  come millions will be produced what  should be the food supply of the British Empire. The Dominion is dipping  into the British investors' pockets to  the extent of two hundred million dollars a year. It has already had a  billion and a half dollars from the  same source. With that money, a network of railroads has been constructed  -and general development assisted.  North American economics have given  United States power to sell two dollars' worth of merchandise to Canada  which sells in exchange one dollars'  worth. The same factor, plus insufficient enterprise and desire on the part  of the British merchant and the British government, plus again the ,hung-  has made the Dominion, aTarge'bor7  rower. from Britain, a considerable;  vendor of its products to Great Britain and an unusually small buyer from.  Great Britain compared to purchases  from the neighboring epublic.  Great Britain has moved but little  to hold by practical ties, by the strands  of mutual interest in trade, industry,  finance and shipping, it bversas Empires to its side. Living next door to  an ambitious nation, speaking the  English tongue, it is only natural that  partly because of this inaction in a  land three thousand miles away, Canada should begin to ape the mannerisms and customs of its nearest neigh-  'bor, that it should trade with an enterprising merchant separalvd only by  an international boundary line, that  the stream of Americanization should  begin to make impression on the rocks  of English foundation, that bygone  Canadian-British history, unsupported  by present and practical reminders,  should be overlooked.  The position is further complicated  by the flutteiing of Canada's wing3 as  a nation, one whose strength among  foreign nations was built upon British sinew, upon British capital and one  whose freedom from ugly international rcises is due to the British navy  patrolling year in and year out, without advertisement, the commercial  highways of the Empire. The present tendency is to wage war with tariffs and commercial treaties rather  than with armored cruisers and Gat-  ling guns* Sometimes when economic skirmishes fail, more serious warfare is necessary. Canada has assumed the position of commercial belligerent, but without the support of  blue jackets and red jackets. It has  named its right to dictate its trade  policy and frame its trade treaties  with nations in both hemispheres. But  should any unforseen and grave situation arise.therefrom, the Cabinet ministers so eager to consummate com-  *  For the Million  ���������������������������������������������������  ���������������-������������������TT-MUmei^m_1_^  i  Good Butter, 30c yer lb:  Best Butter sold In B.

A RI8ING CANADIAN ARTI8T.  IN CHINA.  At the Oriental Circle of the Lyceum  Club, in London, Dr. Yamei Kin,   the  Chinese lady doctor, gave an address  on the condition of things in China.  She said that woman's work lay in the  home;    when   the   man crossed the  threshold he came into her domain.  Religion waa largely    left    to    the  women in China; men only attended  the temples on special occasions, such  aa the New Yesr.    Hitherto it had  been considered that only men should  be educated, but that was found to  result in man having one leg short  and one leg long, so that the education  of .'women   was   steadily   advancing  though it was   not compulsory   yet..  Women who were educated married  better; people were beginning to realise that mothers ought to be educatjatf.'  In answer to questions Dr. Kin said she  was the' first Chinese lady doctor, but'  ���������he knew of six Chinese ladies now  studying medicine.   One was hoping  to take her degree at Edinburgh next  year.   Explaining the laws ot divorce  In China, Dr. Kin aroused laughter,by  admitting that a wife could be   divorced tor being too talkative; on the  other hand, if a woman, with the consent of the community, divorced   her  husband, be ceased to exist socially;  no. on* 'wui W*x anything to dp  with him.'     *<>*'''  Miss.

Frechette, the well-known  Canadian author and poet and laurate  of the French Academy. Her father,  Mr. Achille Frechette, chief of tbe  translation branch of the, House of  Commons, at Ottawa, before entering  the public service, had made a reputation for himself as a journalist and  lawyer, and he has also won recognition as "an artist ot admirable skill."  For eighteen years he has been director and for live years secretary of the  Art Association of Ottawa.. Her  mbther was the daughter of the Hon.  W. H. Howells, formerly United States  'consul at Quebec and later at Toronto.  William Dean Howells, the celebrated  United tSates novelist, was a brother  of.

One of her  pictures was bung last year at the  Salon, and she is working on another,  "A -Woman's Head," which she hopes  to have accepted for the Salon' this  Bpring. The model of this is a French-  Canadian girl of characteristic brunette type. Several of this talented  young Canadian artist's, pictures are  familiar to Canadians who have visited  Quebec of recent years, as they hang  conspicuously in the dining room of  the Chateau Frontenac.

HINTS FOR THOSE WHO KEEP
CANARIES.   :
jfn selecting a canary, one of .the

of goldfinch or bullfinch, is the best
to choose as the yare much hardier

The best food for canaries is canary

weed, ' watercress, or lettuce. 1 lump
of sugar should always be kept in between the cage wires withmin easy
reach. <,-   _
Always give a canary a bath the first
thing in the morning. After cleaning
the bottom of the cage should be
sprinkled with gravel and sand (not
sand from the seashore, as the salt
will "kill the bird. This agrees with
the canary^and^pre vents sore feet.
Never hang tlie cage in a draft or
a stiff breeze:as canaries are very susceptible to cold. Neither should it remain uncovered in a lighted room at
night as the bird's song is liable-to become impaired, because of its nervous
temperament.

before lighting.     ,
It is no pleasant job to keep the
kitchen sink clean. If it is of galvanized iron cover its surface with soap
powder. After it has remained on at
least fifteen minutes, scrub the sink
with a strong brush in boiling ,hot; water. Gare must be taken in! keeping
the soap powder from touching the
woodwork of the sink, as it will eat all
the paint off.
If you have no stationary tubs in the
room in which your laundry work is
done, and if you are compelled to fiU
each tub with water from the kitchen
ooiler, get hold of an old piece of garden hose'and attach one end of it to
the faucet on your boiler and run the
other end into your tub.
If your polished table has been spotted by drops of water, etc., pour a
small quantity of��� liquid camphor or
spirits of camphor on the stain, rub It
in well with the palms of the hand. The
camphor will not injure the polish of
the table and the white spot will disappear.

A Discourtesy on the Part of,a Man.
���Is it prober for a man to put tils arm
over the back of,.the seat when driving with a young woman? What can I
do if be persists in doing so? It is tn
exceedingly bad taste for a man to assume- so intimate a posture. You,should
say plainly, and as though you meant
it, though courteously:. "Please tape
your arm away." -If he demurs or asks
why, say: "Because it Is awfully bad
manners, and I do not like it." A man
respects a girl who will not permit any
liberties and has the courage to reprove them���and If he does not he Is
not the right kind of a man.

then be pasted down to the floor in order to keep the dirt from working under it. Another good suggestion is to

an appropriate color.
In lighting a new gas range the instructions to first turn on the gas and
then stritte the. match must be' followed invariable. Unless this is done
the flame will roar and pound and be

Here is a- good way to keep your
stockings up. Fasten together, with a
piece in back and one in front, two
pl��ces of tape long enough to reach
over the shoulders. Then fasten on
each of these four ends a piece of elastic fixed with a garter fastener. This
will hold the stocking up in both front
and back and does away with the necessity of fastening the garters to the
waist.

If the water in your laundry is hot

The charcoal Bhould be broken Into
small pieces, and will hold the soot
after the saltpeter has drawn It tp the

bakers use, and "the smaller scoop-

Among these are some relating to  picket-duty and the rendering of the  bothersome countersign which are  truly remarkable. For instead of possessing at least some faint particle of  the soldierly instinct, many of the  younger recruits, it would seem, were  of a strikingly civilian frame of mind  and this can be no more said of one  army than of the other. ���������  This is a characteristic account:  One recruit challenged, "Who goes  there?" "The Grand Rounds." In-,  atead ot saying, "Halt, Grand Rounds.  Advance, sergeant, and give the countersign," the recruit exclaimed in disgust, "Oh���������, I thought It was the relief!"  A general testing the sentries came  upon a young recruit who halted him  with:  '"Stop!   Have you the countersign?"  "No," replied the General.  "What, another one without it?" exclaimed the sentry in disgust. "Well,  I'll tell you; it's 'Victory.'"  The General gasped for breath.  "What do you mean by giving any one  the countersign?" be at last roared  out. "I'm the General and I'll have  you hanged."  The sentry was amazed. "Why, my  orders were not to let any one pass  without the countersign," he exclaimed. "Let me tell you, I am tired of  giving it. Such a lot don't seem to  know'it."  Words of this sort might be occasionally heard:  "Who comes there?"  "A friend."       y  "Advance, friend, and give the countersign." .  "Hang it, man, I have forgotten it."  "Begorra,; so have I."  One officer, approaching a sentry;  was surprised to be greeted with "Hi-  tiddieHae-M-������."������Y.- 7^7' :k7"-77'7  "What do you mean by challenging  like that?" he inquired. -Tke laat Ume  I was on duty," was the reply, "I was  told to challenge |������ ��������� more musical  cruit handed it over, whereupon the  oiucer said in ,disgust, "You re a fine  soldier!
