strong and numerously signed
polition was proaonted to tho Gov

Sinco tho presentation of that
polition other houses have been

in his down-lying ov his up-rising,
while, tho depository of explosives
looms abovo their heads in con
stant menace. An act of careless

or a thunderbolt from ono of those
rare but terrific electric storms
that fometimes roll across tho
mountains, might iguito tho con

and devastation would in such
a" ease bo iuovitably spread
over a largo area, and tho loss in
window glass alono throughout
the town would far exceed tho cost
of removing tho mngnzino beforo
any such calamity should happen.
Standing whero it does tho
powder magazine is a distinct
deterioration to tho valuo of pro

which was acquit ed by tho owners
under tho hope that tho undesir

Besides the dnugor of having such
a thing in a residenco locality, tho
magazine is inconvenient to mer

After taking possession of tho
island of Formosa, a prizo of tho
late war, the Japanese authorities
sent a forco of 12,000 men to raid
tho piratical Chinese tribe of tho
Bootans, who had massacred 92
out of 101 Loochooans who wore
on their way to Formosa to found
a colony. Tho Japanese expedi

under tho leadership of an Amer

scoured tho mountains, burning
villages in its course, but could
not ovortako the retreated Bootans.
"Ono day, howovor," tho account
goes, "a little girl was observed in
tho distanco and orders woro
given to capturo hor alive.

oventually subdued and led in

Iccrlleil by dm Colonel Onniuiniul
Ins Iho ntloiml 4iunrl.
An interesting lecluro on Iho
"Battle of "Waterloo" was gnon
by Col. McLean at tho Y. M. C. A.
hall on Saturday ovoning. Al
though tho hall was not crowded,
there was a fair attendance.
Beforo beginning, tho colonel
explained that ho was not a lec
turer, and that what ho would say
would bo more in tho naluro of a
litto talk than a regular lecture.
After speaking of Napoleon's
great victories, and comparing
ends and soldiers, ho explained
thomoonioiitsaud positions of the
different armies which led to tho
battle at Waterloo. To make his
remarks moro clear, tho lecturer
mo great general wnn otnor con
had prepared maps, on which he i
pomtecrout tho routes
tions of tho onposiiia armies of
tho Fronch on ono sido and tho
allied armies of England, Belgium
and Prussia on tho othor.
Tho battlo was lost, tliu colonel
showed, not through any fault of
the great general; and the result
might havo been different, if ono
of hjs marshals, who had been
following tho Prussians, had not
failed to turn up with his army
at tho great battlo.
During tho talk, tho speaker
told of an answer Wellington
gave to ono of his generals, whon
it seemed that tho French woro
about to win tho day. Tho oflicor
asked, "What aro your orders, in
case you aro killed ?" "Staud
here, and tight or dio to tho last
man !" answored tho duko.
Several sido remarks made by
tho speaker during tho talk woro
applauded by tho audience.
Everyone wont away woll pleased,
and feeling they had spent a

At each vibration it rot atotv. about
1 times, which makes 197,100,000

that wo may bettor understand tho
stupendous amount of labor per

us make n pertinent comparison.
Tako for illustration a locomotivo

What stupendous working
powers your tiny little ma
chine has; and how little at
tention you give it until it lias
refused to go further. "Tired
out." Tho accumulation of old
oil, particles of dirt, so minute
you can't see it, have so added
to its burdens, that it refuses
to go further. Now is tho
time to send it to a watch
maker, not until now, for it
will no longer go as it should.
How much better to give it all
tho attention it needs whilo it
yet can go. Is it no better
than a common lawn mower?
You give it less attention.
Would you think of running a
mower for a 3rear or two stea
dily every day without a little
oil, something to help it over
tho rough places. Yet you
nre letting your valuable littlo
time piece woar itself out, sim
