THE ' PHILOSOPHER'S
Edward '0. Brico of Chicago
wants a patent for tho transmuta
tion of baso tnotals into gold and
Bilver. Ho claims to havo dis
covered tho secret of alchoray,
Bought in vain through past ages,
lying within tho processes of
modern chemistry. Whether ho
is rogue or fool, his representa
tions must have been plausible,
when tho Socretary of tho
Treasury gave permission last
month to have them investigated.
Exports of tho Mint conducted ex
periments in that bureau, accord
ing to tho formula of tho purport
ed discoverer. They found appre
ciable quantities of gold and
silver in antimony procured as
"chemically pure," but reported
that tho products wore less in
amount than metallurgies know
the autimony of commeice to
contain. "Brice is not satisfied
with the result of tho commission's
work," a lato Washington dis
patch says. "Ho claims, as tho
supplies for conducting tho ex
periments wero purchased from
the best dealers in tho country
and regarded as chemically pure,
tho gold obtained was created by
his process. Brice also claims
that ho is producing gold and
silver on a commercial scale at his
works in Chicago and making it
pay. Ho savs ho has produced
thousands of dollars ami invested
S25',000." Al first thought sensi
ble minds may be disgusted at
seeing tho Government of tho
United States tuking oflicial cog
nizance of such au alleged dis
covery as that hero mentioned.
But, apart fiom the duty of tho
Interior Department at whose
instance tho Tieasury Department
acted to give an equal show to all
applications filed in tho Patent
Office, are there not reasons for
equal credulity today with that
which oxisted in tho dark ages ?
Tho pretensions of charlatans and
empirics of tho past havo been
outdoue by tho performances of
practical investigators and ex
perimenters in the age now
present, as the feats performed
with the magic wands of Egyptian
jugglers wero surpassed by those
wrought with the rod of Moses,
Mou of the generations that havo
been tho oloctrio iluid coaxed from
its idliug hauntB in all terrestrial
nature, to bo made tho greatest
slave of all work mankind has
ever ruled, need not havo their
imaginations upset by the discov
ory in itself, should it bo made,
that thero are invisible, atoms of
gold and silver in more common
motald which may bo brought
togethor in tangible aggre
gates by genuinely scien
tific processes. Where tho
Bhock would como to human
mentality is in the contemplation
of results from suoh a discovery
to the world's fiuanoial conditions.
Should any process like that
which Brico seoks to havo patent
ed be a choap as well as success
ful one, thero would eusuo from
its putting in operation a univers-
al unsettling of bullion and cur
rency values throughout tho world.
While nations were devising on
tirely now mothods of oxchango of
wealth, tho silvor and tho gold of
tho rioh would indood bo liable to
President McKinloy's letter to
President Dole, accrediting Min
ister Sowall, is highly oncouragiug
to the prospect of closor relations
botwoen tho United States and
Hawaii. Tho American President
declares tho "sincere desire" of
his administration to bo "to culti
vato to tho fullest exteut tho
trioudship subsisting between tho
two governments." Nothing short
of a point blank declara
tion in favor of immedi
ato uuion could mean moro
thau these worda of Presi
dent MoKinley. Cultivation of
friendship between the two re
publics "to tho fullest oxtont"
would loave it but a matter of time
when tho government of Hawaii
should bo merged in tho Amoricau
Henri Kochofort, tho French
radical, has, in his own paper
L'lutransigcant and in an ai tide
for tho Forum, strongly expressed
the opinion that Spain cannot
much longer hold Cuba. Ho
counts upon the United States be
ing forced to help the Cubans
finally. M. Bochafort is con
vinced that uonoof tho European
Powers would venture to quarrel
with tho United States foi tho
sako of Spanish monarchical in
terests iu tho western hemisphere.
Probably ho is right. If tho
Representatives pass the Senate's
recognition resolution, President
McKinloy may bo constrained to
force tho issue with Spain diplo
matically to a crisis.
Signor Crispi, lately Premier of
ItBly, is reported to havo made a
bitter prophecy to King Humbert
two months ngo. Ho was com
plaining of persecution iu being
legally pursued for tho Bank of
Naples scanduls, and declared that
ho would defend and justify his
connection with the transactions
in question, addiug: "Pormit me
to toll you plainly what tho up
shot will bo. Two persons will
go into exile. I, as a poor man,
and you, sir, with your millions."

A largo portion of editorial ut
terance iu tho Anglican Church
Chronicle for Juno ie devoted to
tho proportion for tho union of
tho two congregation uomhiping
iu St. Andrew's Cathedial. Men
tion of this mutter was uiado in tho
Bulletin two weoks ago. Evi
dently the Chroniolo does not
favor the terras of tho proposition,
its leading ground of objectiou
being that thero is no breach to be
healed, each congregation being
independent but not in antago
nism to the other. Tho rest of tho
contents of tho Chroniolo includes'
tho usual church and social uows
and a useful educational depart
ment. Hellion Why

There aro now as many prospec
tors in the field as thero was popu
lation in tho provinco boforo tho
oxcitoraont. This lust for gold
has porhaps reached its climax in
conquering the fear of lcpiosy,
for white gold miners aro working
hard by the Chinese lazatetto on
Darcoy Island, whoro a colony of
hopoless lepers are awaiting tho
end, housed with pics and chick
ens as companions and
rarely evon iy ineuieal men. i
Gold having been discovered on
tho island, the Government will
not allow the lives of American
and Canadian prospectois to be
oudaugered by contaminated
Chinamen, and tho lazaretto will
probably bo removed.

Tho attoution of tho public is
now fully occupied ami diverted
in tho consideration and discus
sion of several important current
and prospective happenings. An
nexation, as yot uusecure, Ro
cipiocity threatened; tho coming
of the Niuiiua, and her mission
after arrival; tho outcome of tho
war between Greoce and Turkoy
and, whether or no, all Europo
will ovontually becomo involved;
tho 6ottlemout of tho quarantine
squabble aro all themes of much
conjecture aud uncertainty, and
while opinions aro freely ollored,
none can accurately foretell the
outcome of any of these matters.
Nevertheless, it is becoming more
apparent, as each day pabses, that
Buffalo and Hotlhrau aro tho
favorite brows, and it is gratify
ing that assurance is given that
regular shipments of these wholo
hoiuo and strengthening hovor
ages can bo depended upon, and
that tliay will, as heretofore, bo
dispensed at tho Royal, Pacific
aud Cosmopolitan Saloons, and
that tho interchangeable check
system is an established fact.

How to Uae Old Linen.
Tablecloths that aro much worn in
tho center will often havo edges that
aro really stout und strong cuough to
mako napkins that will prove amply
good to find their way next full into the
children's school lunch baskots. Tho
school lunch basket, it is well known,
is a fatal spot to placo a napkin that is
tho least valuable.
Tito towels with much worn ccnteii
mako excellent wash cloths, und, if
doubled and bound with tape, ndmiiablo
eating bibs for tho small boys und-girls
of tho family. Tho old towel wash
cloths' aro much better minus hems,
docp overcasting and linen floss being
a moro cornfortabla finish for tho edges.
Hemstitching on linen is suoh a
dainty inodo of finishing tablo linen
that tho neat housowifo is over proud to
have hor very best tablecloths and nap
kins thus finished. A dozen damask
napkins to bo hemstitched will furnish
tho nicest kind of "pick up" work
when one is away on one'a summor va
cation. How to Make Rose Jan.

raricty of roso in tho bottom of a jar.
On this scatter somo coarso salt. Cover
tho jnr closely and put in tho sun. Noxt

HOUSEHOLD AND DAIRY.
The long continued drouth
of this year has necessarily
affected dairies, especially on
this island, and its continuance
bids fair to seriously affect the
milk supply. Consequently it
behooves dairymen to be more
pfniinnnVnl thnn pvpr in fll'fipr
to make both ends meet before
the next rainy season. In no
way can economy be practised
to better advantage tnan in
using the Alpha-De Laval
Cream Separators. Here
are a few of the advantages to
be gained from their use:
1. Save 10 percent, to ?0
percent, in skimming. 2. Save
$ percent, to 10 percent, in
churning, h Increase butter
value $ percent, to 50 percent.
4. Save time and labor. $. Save
ice and water. 6. Insure purity
of product. 7. Remove tuber
culosis and disease germs.
8. Give a much superior cream.
9. Give cream of any desired
density. 10. Give warm, fresh,
sweet skim-milk. 11. Obviate
"scours" in calves. 12. Give
the best aeration. 1?. Do away
with taints and odors. 14. En

Save women's and housework.
16. Save one-half time in
