When Wellington Was General.
The greatness of Wellington Is never
more admiringly remembered than in
times of strifeand perhaps never
more usefully quoted. The duke one
day wanted a bridge constructed, and
he consulted on the matter reported t
mat it couia not oe managea. Anotner
officer was sent for, from another dl-
that the task was duly accomplished.
This caused the duke to put the fol-.
lowing in "Orders:" "He who In war
fails to do what he undertakes, may
always plead the accidents which in invariably
variably invariably attend military affairs; but
he who. declares a thing to bo impos impossible,
sible, impossible, which is subsequently accom accomplished,
plished, accomplished, registers his own incapacity."
Another "wise saying" Qt Wellington
comes from another reader, and it is
appropriate to the moment, He was )
asked what was the best test of a
great general, and he answered: "To
know when to retreat; and to dare
to -lo" it."- London. Chronicle. f

The gift to Sir Thomas Lipton of a
model in serpentine stone of his new
racing yacht has revived interest iu
this beautiful stone, which some years
ago was much in vegue.
Serpentine is often found in con conjunction

duces produces about nine-tenths of the world's
production of asbestos, which is large largely
ly largely used for insulating purposes and
also for weaving into fireproof cloth.
In the province of Quebec are to be
found the largest asbestos mines in
Canada. The production is large, and
it is interesting to note that whereas
in 1909 the exports of crude asbestos
were valued at $1,758,057, in 1913
the figures had Increased to $2,486, $2,486,-7G9.
7G9. $2,486,-7G9. And In the same province are also
to be found some of the world's most
beautiful deposits of serpentine.
It was In 184G that Queen Victoria
and the Prince Consort, when on a
visit to Cornwall, England, were shown
specimens of serpentine, which they
admired so much that several large
pedestals made of this stone were
ordered for Osborne house.
The patronage thus secured brought
serpentine into considerable fashion,
and among others who at that time
favored it were the duke of Westmin Westminster,
ster, Westminster, who ordered a pair of Luxon
obelisks 14 feet in height; the Hon.
Pemberton Lee, who bought the first
and finest chimney-piece ever made
In this material; and the then duke of
Devonshire, who had several large
pedestals and pilasters, unequaled for
beauty and color, made for his sculp sculpture

During the rather short-lived boom
in serpentine which followed, a man manufactory

the hands of a London company. Ser Serpentine

tions exhibitions of 1851 and 18C2, and was
awarded medals on both occasions.
Serpentine, it may be mentioned,
gets its name from the variety of the
colors which it presents. These colors
are of the -most beautiful and varie variegated

green, perhaps, predominating, with a
frequent mixture of diallage; but the

Decision on "Recall" Law.
A suit to test the Washington law
for the recall of officers was heard by
the supreme -court of the state in
Pybus vs. Smith, city clerk, in which
the plaintiff, a councilman of the city
of Wenatchee, sought to have the city
clerk enjoined from calling a special
election to submit the question of his
recall to the voters. It appeared that
the charge against the plaintiff was
that he agreed to and did trade votes
with another councilman on matters
pending before the common council,
but the plaintiff contended that the
charge was not one for which he could
be recalled. The lower court dismissed
the plaintiff's suit and in affirming th.e
judgment the supreme court said:
"Whether this appellant could be
convicted of a misdemeanor in our
state upon the charge here made may
be regarded as somewhat doubtful.
But we are, however, of the opinion
that the facts here charged against the
appellant, if true, do constitute mal malfeasance
feasance malfeasance in office on his part, within
the meaning of that word as used in
our constitutional and statutory recall
provisions, and form sufficient legal
cause for submitting to the voters of
the city the question of his recall and
discharge from public office."
The very best way to keep fish in
camp (or anywhere without ice) is to
scale, clean and behead them; then
string them by a cord through their
tails and hang them, downward, in a
dry, breezy, shady place. No fish
should be eaten that have been lying
in the sun or that have begun to
soften. It is in neglected fish that
ptomaine poison forms.
Do not put fish on a string to keep
in water until you start home. It is
slow and painful death to them. If
you have neither live-box nor net with
you, kill and bleed every fish as soon
as caught. The flesh will be much
firmer and far more palatable. Fish
and meat should be hung high in the
open, for it is a curious fact that blow blowflies

REV. W. H. DODGE
OF DR. W. II. PODGE
The following is a brief synopsis of
the sermon preached in the Presby Presbyterian
terian Presbyterian church yesterday morning. Thei
text was taken from the 90th Psalm,
17th verse, "And let the favor of the
Lord our God be upon us; and estab establish
lish establish thou the work of hands upon us;
yea, the work of our hands establish
thou it." Dr. Dodge said in the be beginning
ginning beginning of the sermon the psalmist in
the psalm has contrasted two thoughts
which are the opposites of each other,
viz: the eternity of God and the brev brevity
ity brevity and frailty of human life, but has
given to man notwithstanding his un un-worthiness
worthiness un-worthiness and his manifold infirmi infirmities
ties infirmities assurance that he is still an ob object
ject object of divine consideration and a
subject of gracious privileges. One
of which the psalmist commends, that
of supplication, as he made the words
of the text a prayer for the greatest
blessing that one could ask, even the
favor of the Lord. This gift of his
benediction he sought upon the work
of his hands, all-' the things done by
him in the interest of the kingdom of
God, the good of his fellow man arid
the welfare of human society.
Dr. Dodge then called attention to
the work which he, as a minister of
the gospel in his church, has sought
to do since he became its pastor eight
years ago. He said his work upon
which he could ask the favor of the
Lord, "that he would establish it."
had been as to its character evangeli evangelical,
cal, evangelical, for he had preached Jesus Christ
and him crucified as the Savior of the
world; that he was both the son of
God and the Son of Mary without nat natural
ural natural father; that he was the sin sin-atoning
atoning sin-atoning lamb, slain for the remission
of sins, and that his name was the
only name given among men whereby
they must be saved. He caid his
preaching had been evangelical in
that he had sought to woo and win
men to the acceptance of Christ as
the Savior of the lost, and to the ap appropriation
propriation appropriation through faith in him of
the great salvation that he had pro provided
vided provided and offered to them. And that
in his preaching he had sought the
edification of the church teaching,
instructing, inspiring, encouraging
and comforting, so that believers in
Christ might be built up in holiness
and comfort and made strong in the
faith and active in every good word
Looking back upon his ministry
lince he came here eight years ago,
the doctor said he could sincerely
pray the prayer cf the text' "and 'es 'establish
tablish 'establish thou the work of our hands
upon us." And he felt also that the
church could unite in this prayer as
it had wrought with him in all this
work with earnestness and fidelity, as
all the various departments of the
work jof the church show increased
efficiency, improved equipment and
enlarged membership, and the general
condition of the church is better than
it has ever been. All of which attests
the character of the work the pastor
and his wife, aided by his church,
has been able to do.

He twirled his ash stick in his hand

"Folks like that," he ruminated, as
if to himself, "always put me in mind

ters Masters crossed the bay to the city; he
meant to meet Doctor Boone and his

The steamer, however, had reached

inquiries at ,the principal hotels, but

Cure for Snake Bite.
Many are the curious methods
adopted for curing snake bites, but
surely none can be more so than a
way of which our Bhavnagar corre
spondent informs us. Two natives in
a village near that station were, he
says, brought back to life after being
bitten by a cobra.
The victims were seated on the
ground and then held, while from a
height of 16 feet gallons and gallons
of hot water were poured on their
heads. Presently, according to the cor
respondent, the victims "took a new
lease of life," and are now as well as
though they had never been in the
jaws of death.
The explanation to this "cure" prob
ably is that the snake, as often hap happens,
pens, happens, bit its victims, but injected no
poison into them. Thus the men were
merely frightened, and continued to
be frightened until the pain caused by
the douche of hot water gave them
something else to think about. Civil

It is usually supposed that at great
heights the pressure of the air is al
most negligible, but the application of
an ingenious method indicated by

asserts that the green line character

0.000035 millimeters of mercury.
rsow tnis green line is found in
the spectrum of the aurora borealis
and it seems to be well established
that this exists frequently at altitudes
between 100 and 200 miles, and even
sometimes up to nearly 500 miles.
But krypton is one of the heaviest
gases in our atmosphere. It would
seem, therefore, that the density of
the air at these altitudes is by no
means negligible, as, whatever the
cause may be of the presence of kryp

according to this doctor, a target for

leads to frequent accidents with the

It is now just 100 years since the

shipped before the mast as a sailor
lad on the ship Corlo, bound from Bos Boston
ton Boston to Calcutta. While on that voyage
he whittled out the wooden model of a
revolving pistol, says the Advance. In
1835 he went abroad again, this time
to secure patents in foreign countries
for his new pepper-box gun. Then, he
returned to America and tried to in interest

States in a weapon which could be
loaded on Sunday and shot all the
week. But he had no immediate suc success
cess success in the endeavor. The officers of
the army frowned upon it. It would
not do. To be sure, it shot, and shot,
and shot, six times; but it used the
new percussion cap and not the good
old reliable flint.
It would not do tot indorse a gun
which depended on anything less reli reliable

time old-time flintlock was good enough for
them. It was good enough for Wash Washington,
ington, Washington, was good enough for grim Old
Hickory, for Tippecanoe and Tyler too,
and good enough for them. Had it not
served our country in the past? And
what reason had we to expect that
the future could be saved otherwise?
So Colt and his new six-shooting gun
met with little favor in Washington.
But Mr. Colt learned the secret of
nitrous oxide and went around the
country as "Doctor Colt giving lec lectures

It was the laughing gas that secured
